Bept. 3.-The following Is an open letter
by Hon. Carl Behurx to Secretary of the
Treasury Lyman J. Gage:
Dear Btr: The newspapers of Aug. M.
published on Interview with you In which
you were quoted as saying that "there
Is no doubt Mr. Bryan. (If elected I'res-
IdenO, could order hla Secretary of the
Treasury to make payment in silver of all
the public debt payable In coin, and for
all current disbursements of the govern
ment as well, which amount to |I..VXMk>
to 11.730.000 per day; and that he would
give such an order, too. Is very certain,
ir he ts in the earn*, tnttsl that he was In
You went on to say that although
Air Bryan "would have great difficulty
In doing lhat at once," owing lo the •mall
sliver resources of (he government, yet
he might accomplish It In time, as the
mere announcement of such a purfsise
"would stop the Inflow of gold or St least
very largely dtmkdsh payments in gold,
and correspondingly increase payments
into the treasury of silver and sliver cer
tificates;” (hat this would practically put
the government on a stiver basis, ruin Re
credit, and bring incalculable disaster up
on the business Interest* of the country.
Having for n great many year* token
a deep ond somewhat active interest in
The establishment of a sound monetary
system in the United Htates, I may with
out impropriety publicly a<ldre* to you
n few remarks In reply to your public
statement. 1 emphatically deny. Mr B> ■-
rotary, that the danger aet forth by you
‘n your tnlervlewo really exists, and that
any Brestdcnt will be able to do what you
ssy might be done, unless the Republican
larty In control of the government In both
Its legislative end executive branches,

fessed purpose tu maintain tlte gold stand
This dental I* not based li|mn the rea
soning of those of your crltlca who s- k

siring ever so much to put the country
upon a silver basis, would lock the me ins
for doing so. On the contrary, for argu
ment's sake. I Will accept ail you sty
on (hat point But you omit to mention
a fact of derisive Importance.
AA ould Mr tt ti s Flaw la the law.
If the executive, os you say. professes
Ihe discretion of "paying silver In settle
ment of all Interest on Ihr public debt not
specifically payable In gold, and of mak
ing Ita dally disbursements to Its creditors
In silver." It Is owing to a flaw In Ihe
currency taw passed si Ihe last session of
Congress—a law which as Ihe spokesman
of the Bepub 1 -wn party promised, was la
put the go;d standard upon an Imprcxnjbie
basis. 11 was suggested al Ihe lime bv
some of tt* crlllcs that this law was pur
posed so manipulated by Republican pol
iticians In Ihe Senate ns lo leave Ihe pos
sibility of Ihe subversion of Ihe gold stan
dard by the executive action open In order
to enable the Republicans In the present
Presidential campaign to say that Ihe
election of Ihe Republican Brestdenl was
absolutely ne-essery to ssve Ihe gold
standard and lo prevent dreadful eco-rom
|e disaster. AA’heiher any auen scheirp en

our monetary system from the change
ful game of party politics.
AA ill the Iteiiutillenns Do It.
Do you see any reason for doubling that
Congress at Its neat session will do this’
It ls quite evident that. If there Ut any
substance at al! In your prediction* of dis
aster. the Republican* In Congress cannot
retusc to do it without proving that the
professed solicitude of the Republican
parly for the maintenance of the gold
standard Is arrant hypocrisy. But If
there be any wavering. I am convinced
public opinion will In oae of necessity,
compel ihem to take the necessary st.-pe.
You will thus hav* to admit. Air. Secre
tary. that when you sounded your note of
alarm, you had overlooked ihe most Im
portant tact that you and your party
friends, that I*, the Itepuhllcin majority
In Congress, led by Ihe administration of
which you form so Influential a part, will
be able easily and promptly to remedy the
defc. is of the law which you have de
scribed as a source of terrible danger,
ami therefore your note of alarm was. to
say the least, a mistaken one. It may sug
gest Itself to you a* a matter worthy of
grave considetallon whether you should
not retract what you have sakl. In fair
ness to the business community, which
should not be unnecessarily disquieted, es
pecially not by those In authority. 1 am
sure many of your fellow-citlxen* are
anxious, to know what you may have to
say on this aspect of the situation.
