An Aicnmont Dined i Opposition to Hie Speolo voontod by Chuoiploiin of of Silver, [By John B. Conner, of The Indiana Farmer.] Most persons understand the importance of having a coin equally good in every commercial country in-the world, as 'bulancos in trade between nations have to be paid with it.. To make our other forms of money obligations good outside of our own country, we recognize tho necessity for a sound basis held ;alike by other nations. This fortifies n» in trade relations, though in good prosperous times we have smaller need for this money held good by all nations alike. But if we did not have it as a .basis at other times, trade raids would be made on us by people of other nations which would wreck/mr industries. To illustrate: We have to use our war ships only once in a great while, but we have to ke.ep war6hips,.andthe fact.that wo keep them is a.warnirig to. all comers that we are ready. We put millions Into coast defenses, but wo seldom have to use.pur coast ; .<Ktins, as.;the;-world knows they are there. The standing, army iB:likewise: a precaution for the common defense, but is little used. And so the', knowledge of the- commercial world that we have abnsis of trade good : the world over, is a defense of our commerce uiid industry, and yet in prosper- •ous'times we have to use but little of this world-standard money.. We have, as shown by the official statement of the secretary -of the treasury in round numbers $600,000,000 of .gold in this country as the basis of gold certificates, and greenback paper obligations to- the amount of $435,345,016. Under the pledge of a law of congress to keep our currency all at a parity with cold, the government -keeps a (told reserve of $100,000,000 as a redemption basis for tbe |846,681,016 of, greenbacks. That is a little over three dollars to one. Turning to.our more domestic currency, we find from'the treasury statement that we hayo .coined irilver which,is a full legal tender,'to the amount of fcOJ,- 384,178. Based upon -this redemption money are the silver certificates, and other currency obligations amounting to $603,407,504. As this paper is pavable .in silver - as '.'money of : flnal redemption," it would appear that the burden of "final redemption is both fairly distributed and m large abundance. . . . Now keeping these things in mind, consider some of the favorite expressions of our free coinage of i silver friends, viz: That gold has.appreciated m^valne because it has been made the only "money, of redemption." Another form of expressing the same idea with them is, that gold has appreciated m value because it is "the only money of final redemption." These'are'new applications of .plain, .enough words. , .bet us'get right at the meaning of the word •'redemption," 1 -and in this way find what it means. The standard^ dictionaries give these definitions: "The liberation of an estate from a mortgage: and again, "Making, payraeut. So, when a mortgage-is paid' off, that is final redemption of the promise .to.pay it. ' 'Making. payment''. of : .any other obligation, such as taxes,., store bills, '•notes given ! in- the -purchase of horses, or ..cattle,' or I harvesters; -plows ( pr any•thing else, is ,','final redemption',' of .the obligations. 'The money .used, m the payment of the mortgage notes, and all of the other obligations to' pay • was -"money of redemp.tion,'.' of. .it ,-please, ;'money of final redemption,! so 'far as the payment' of these obligation! were concerned. -Has anyone'refused , to receive silver,. or greenbacks, or national bank notes, or treasury : notes,oi silver certificates'in payment of any of '"these domestic obligations? .So; .'none -have refused silver t for silver dollars are •a leiral tender for.any.amount;and,at a parity with gold,, and so aro greenbacks 'and all other forms of our money are at a parity 1 with -^gold -and there ls-no motive for - refusing any -of them as "money, of, final redemption in-, all .these transactions. All-such debts are finally redeemed, paid off, and tne payers do not have to .use a;dollar.or goia, nor pay'an additional cent when using our other forms of "money. And it is all "final." The debts will never rise up to plague the "debtor again while he lives, ,«or:stand against his : e«tate,when • 6 Now " our ; domestic ''trade '-amounts to- $30,000,000,000- annually,. : and: any and all forms .of our., money, are received as "money of toal • redemp- tibn" !

"On, the .contrary, the world s statistics of gold prsdu9tioii show.that the world's stauaar'd coin.for the settlement of-iutemational bills and balances has kept: pace both with 'the world s population and international trade.when the increased facilities for trade arecon- sidered.'
