Thus the . largest possible enjoyment of both metals is gained with'a value universally accepted throughout the .world, which .. constitutes the only practical bimetallic currency; assuring the most stable standard and especially the bout and safest noney for all who earn their livelihood by abor or the produce of husbandry.
