Tim Onlr llnnrit Dollar.
Tho light Is to restore to Its old placo
the wrongfully-ejected nllver unit,
viz.: tho 3714-grnln dollar. Tho (Chi

is in favor of stiver rcmonetlzatlon.
But how? Why, It would blto oft from
a silver bar chunks each worth a dol

chunk It would call a dollar until gold
fluctuated and went higher, and then
it would call in all the outstanding
pieces, and blto off larger chunks of
sllvor. But this would not bo tho
American dollar ot all, and that Is Just
tho point in the case. Tho old Spanish
milled dollar of 371 It grains wan a
standard dollar and unit of value In
parts of this country from 1C90 to 1775,
when tho Continental congress adopted
It as the standard dollar, on which to
Borrow money to carry on tho revolu
tionary war. That wnr debt was In
curred In dollars of that exact weight.
Tho revolutionary debt was paid In
silver dollars of oxactly that wolght.
Tho debt of thto second war with Great
Dritatn was incurred and afterwards
paid in silver dollars, of that exact
standard. If anybody had called tho
money "a 91-cent dollar." ho would
probably have been rotten-egged for
his Blandorous malice. Chicago Trlb

Gold StaniUril Monti Itnnkruptcr.
To undertake to do tho business of
the world on a single gold basis of
measurement and equivalents means
loss, bankruptcy, poverty, suffering
and despair. Debts will grow larger,
and taxes becomo more onerous. Tho
farmer will rccelvo small prices for
his crops; labor will bo forced down,
down, down, and there will bo a long
series ot strikes, lock-outs, and a sus
pension of production. Thoso who

The Silver Dollar Ablr Defended.
What la a whole dollar? Who says
that a part of a dollar shall be a whole
lollar or wants It to be? Four hun
dred and twelve and a half grains of
silver Is a whole dollar, and was so
fixed by law In 1702. It never was nny
thlng else, novcr can bo anything els
under tho law. Whether at present
that weight of unlegal tender silver is
worth no much as a gold dollar of
5 8-10 grains in London, no ono earns.
Four hundred and twelve and a half
grains of silver coined and mado leijal

gold dollar. Chicago Trlbuno, Jan. 19,

In 1873-4, as it was two years and

this Bllver dollar wa3 forbidden, and
sllvei' dollars wero demonetized by
law. This act, which was done secret

of the prosldont who approved it, had,
without the knowledge of tho country,
removed ono of tho landmnrks of tho

On Saturday, April 27, 1S03, there
was a banquet of bankers in this city
(Chicago) at which Mr. William C.
Cornwell, president of tho Nov York
State Bankers' association delivered
tho principal address. Among other
things he said:
"If. in 1S7G, 1876, 1877 and 1878,'the
bankers and sound nioney men had
been organizod as they are organized
now, and had spoken out as they are
speaking out npw, had started on a
campaign of education as they are
starting out now; tho greenback would
long ago have been wiped out; tho all

calcuablo damage, would havo Lobn
confined to tho asylums, wucro it be

"It Is time to tear off disguise. In
ternational bimetallism Is a traitor In
the camp. It is a false fraud. It can
never bo accomplished. It Is a "will
o' tho wisp dancing abovo the deadly
marsh. It Is as illusive as a dream of
magic, as idle as the pursuit of per
petual motion, as dangerous is tbo
delirium of flat money."

Does not this New Jersey governor
(McClellan) know, as we have already
stated in these columns, that an ounce
of silver to-day can bo exchanged for
moro of any glveu commodity than it
could llvo years ago when it was at
a premium with gold? As far as stabil
ity is concerned, tho value of silver l.as
remained comparatively stationary as
compared with other property. As a
measure of value it has fluctuated less
than gold. It is the enormous and
alarming enhancement of the value of
gold that has squeezed out the values
of property, paralyzed tho trade of tho
country and produced the present dis
tress. If there is to be a choice bo
tweeu tho two metals, the peoplo prefer
that metal which most nearly retains
Its equilibrium in relation with other
commodities. Chicago Tribune. Jan.

When Alexander Hamilton and
Thoma3 Jefferson devised tho system of
American coinage, thoy adopted tho
metallic plan for tho express and direct
purpose of securing to tho American
people, as a protection against all fluc
tuations in tho relatlvo value of gold
and silver, the option to pay debts In
coin of either metal. We continued the
oystcm in thhs country until 1876; the
people were astounded with the inform
ation that In 1873-4 we had abolished
the coinage of tho silver dollar, and de
clared It no longer a legal tender. Chi
