"We are onalterably opposed to eyery meaaure calculated to debase our cur- rtncy or Impair the credit of our country.

THE RATIO IN HISTORY. '. ' In 283 B" C: .silver and gold were at the ratio of 0 vo 1. In IS B. C. tlie ratio was 10 for 1.' The year 45 B. C. saw Uie nieuils at Hie rntlo..of 12 for 1. Durlns all thin time tlie coins minted or ham- inoreil were made with reference, to tlie i-aitl'o, of full wdlglitand nneiicss. Later, In' 170:2 A. D. coiiieiw of American- money found tlie ratio to be about 13 to 1. This was made the teg.r. ratio be- c-.ui.5t' 15 was the coiii'merclnl -ratio. THc-ri' was no otln-r reason. None arher was considered. I-Iad tin- fouud- oi-s ot -tlie sovoimmeTJt beeji Popucrats, the nit-Jo would probably have been 7V4 for 1, rlftiit !-•*. if t-hey had contracted ut&CL debts ]>revJou*ly and had a desire ro daf-mud coufidinjf creditors by re- pudl«.tiln>: one-half tlie debt*. In 1S34 l:lie-ratlo of silver to ?old .was -10 to 1. This was intuit? the lepil ratio at\tl3[it' lijne for the simple and Rood reason Chat ilit was Uio cominerokil ra-tlo. There wns no -oilier reason.' No other ratio could bo maJnihilned. . This had .twice boeu shown. Had Popucrnits been in charge at that time, It Is possible the r-itio'wouW liavc been S to 1, a d-ls- honcKt -Ritllo. The flnanclei's of Umt day' were govemed by tlie experience of ISOfi wlien n- small mistake hml been madc-'wlieb silver proved tho dear met.Tl ami was wdt'lidrawn for speculation; tlie legal -tten being more than tJie cojniu<a'0ln'l ratio. Tlie ratio wns 1C to 1 In the gold era. The yellow metal quickly cheapened however, by over production, and .*!)-' ver apvln went to n premium In the market. Tlie legal ratio from Hint tlnie on becjume n dishonest measurement. There was at that time no Thomas Jefferson, "Father of Democracy," to stop tlie coinage of the premium-silver dolinw. as ho did In 1SOC. The long •leg anfl tl«? short leg remained^.under the wabbling flnamces of the goverii- jneat tor several yeais, during which- American silver doBai-S 1 disappeared Cram use as money. In 1873 the legal raUo was 10--to 1. The Republtcan and Democratic statesmen of itibnt time beyeved -Jefferson was right when he stopped the coinage ot denr dnddy dollars In 1SOO. The condition that be met faced them. Tney : met' it as Jefferson, met it, fearlessly and openly. Tlie bill by whlehvtiey dropped the silver dollar from coinage was Wiree times debated and. five times printed, ami was before the people three years. The years .following tlie act were years of an immense Increase hi the production of silver. The mine-owners, several years after their product had begun to fall to price because of the blgy Increase,' began- to rail against tlie rf .peal'pf #« act that enabled tlieratfo-sortl their bullion to the government:.'•;.(-.

If the statesmen of 1834 Imd cUarpc today, tihere 'Might be a law passed for the coinage of saver-dollars nt the Honest, comimerctol ratio, 32 to 1, but unluckily, the advocates of unlimited free coinage today are of a dUtereut stamp.
