A REPLYTO CRITICISMS OF fflS
The Secretary Again Expresses His

Washing'ton, Dec. 22. Secretary Gage

criticising his financial policies. He
Tf it is true that the gold standard is
inimical to the interests off the laboring
classes then I think it is Inimical to all
classes. In other words, I don't ibedieve
the exploaition of one class by another,
either through false weights partial laws
or had monetary system can Ibe made to
work for permanent benefit or the general
weal. Granted, therefore, that the per
manence of the t gold standard, for which
I argue, operates in this evil direction,
'then your, resolutions of condemnation are
well founded and I am justly charged with
ignorance which constitutes me a foolish
advisor, or. with perversity of (motive,
which makes me an evil adviser. Let me
say, through you, to the great body you so
honorably representi. that if Instead of de
nunciatory resolutions, which are jnot ar
gument, you or anyone In your behalf , will
show my views to he . other than salutary
to the great economic hody, I will abandon
them without hesitation, iky present con
viction, the honest- fruit of sincere study
and reflection, is that to break down our
'present money standard would be a most
disastrous blovr td "ill our commercial and
industrial -interests, jand iipop. the wage
