SAYS SILVER WILL NOT
GO BELOW $1 AN OUNCE
Reno, Nev.. June 20. That the
price of silver will "not fall below
$1 an ounce in less than seven
years, and probably for several years
later than that, is the statement
made here by Raymond T. Baker, di
rector of the United States mint,
who is en route to San Francisco for
the annual accounting of the mint
at that placer Baker says that the
probability of congress repealing
the Pittman silver bill is very re
mote. "If the government were to pur
chase the entire fdlver production of
the United States for the next five
years," said Baker, "the silver to be
melted and sold to the allies of the
United States under the terms of
the Pittman bill would not be re
placed. It would be impossible to
purchase the entire output of the
mines of the United States, hence it
will be a somewhat longer period
than five years before the replace
ment would be completed.
"The government has melted, un
der the Pittman bill, 270.000,000
ounces of silver and 200.000.000
ounces have been sent abroad. The
silver production of the United
States ";ast year was 77,000,000
