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
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
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
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
