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 tered Into I nut legislation, I do not as sume lo determine. Certain It Is. however, Atuit this feature of Ux law Is now so usl. and lhat you. Air. Secretary, actu ally do so use It for Ihe evAtcnl purpose of alrrtnlng Ihe business community and the po*s,sctng classes generally. A ttueatlonnhle Action. I hardly n<ed to say to you that the spreading of false aknms of this kind I* a very questionable and reprehenslb> thing for anybody, and especially for a Secretary of the Treasury. And 1 tall your prediction of the poadbillt o# specl tlnd l.jr you and of the dim* era sure to follow a false alarm for a very simple reason Whoever may tie elected Presi dent on Nov #. there will be another ses sion of <’ongte* before he will take of fice on Match 4. I*ol The Republican* will have strung majotltlea In both houses of Congress. The egrcutlve, too. will tw in their hand* They will, therefoie. b aide to make surh laws as they please They will thus have full power and am - P'e "Piortunlty before the Inauguration of the next Breaklent to pass any leg lb la'lon required to make It utterly tm posalhla lo any President to break down the gold standard In the way you. Air. Secretary, describe In your Interview A simp's enactment In two or three lines ruhitantlally providing that It etiall be the duty of the Secretary of the Treasury to pay In gold or sliver, at the option of the creditor ail kinds of Indsbt-dness cf the United States now payable In coin, may be sufficient. And If there should be an other flaw In the present law dangerous to the gold standard In any other way. you. Air. Secretary, able financier a* you are. will surely detect It. and flrd a leg islative! remedy and have It ready In tho shape of a well-matured hill to be sub mitted to Congress at the opening of the session In short, the Rep.ihib an* eon. trolling both Ihe legislative and the ex ecutive branch's of the government, will, next winter, have ample power and op portunity to do what they ought ti have done at the last session-to put he cur rency law In such a shape that the gold standard cannot pnss bly be shak'n by executive action, ro matter who may oc cupy the pres'dentlal chair—and thus re move, to that extent at least, the bast* of 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.
