NO, 9- Having seen how pains-taking the founders of the government were to tind the true value of the unit which should, as they thought, represent the basis of the monetary system, it should also be observed that they had no concern about the ratios of the values of the different units. They did not, like so many others have done, begin at the wrong end of the work. They were concerned about the yalueof the unit, knowing well that, values having been found, the ratio would necessaaily follow. They did not pass resolutions de claring in favor of 15 to 1, and then set about tho work of fixing the relatiye values of money on that babis. Katio like number was not created in the ordinary sense of creating things. When but one thing was created, thcie was but one thing in existence, but when another thing was created then there were two things. Juat ho with value ratio. Vi'hen one value was found, there was only one known value, I-:' v,b -.. another value wa3 found, there were two known values, and a comparison of them necessarily gave the ratio. Things already in existence can be compared, and ratios between them may be found, but nonexiating vaU ucs cannot be compared, and conse quently there can be no ratio show ing the rcla'ive value of either to the other. The founders of the government set ua an example worthy of imita tion in the matter of ascertaining what unit should be adopted as the basis of our monetary system, The time, the labor they spent in finding the unit, the sincerity they manifesto ed in the interest of fair dealing, being specially concerned that no man should suffer wrong, ought to be remembered by us, when we at tempt the solution of the difficult problem which wa3 placed before them. They sought for values in order to find the unit, we will do well if we too think less of resolu tions and preconceived notions, and set about, like our forefathers did, seeking what value will be the best, doing justice to all and injury to none. The founders of the government did not attempt to find a unit that would last for all time. The unit they adopted in 1792 was adopted for that time, and not for a century afterwards. They could no more say what the unit for 1895 should be, than we can say what the unit for 1995 shall be. Value is a men tal affection, and from its nature ne cessitates a communication of minds, a reciprocation of desires, all of of which muat be contemporary. The yalues of 1792 are not existing in 1895. They belong to the time in which they existed, and cannot be compared. So far as they apply to the year 1895 they are non-existent and as was said above, non-existent things or values cannot be com pared. From its nature it ought to be eyident that there can be no such thing as an invariable standard of yalue. We may have an invariable standard of measure,- s a yard,? but cannot have an invariable standard of value. The yard is a measure of fixed length, which does not vary (Continued on fourth !pago.)
