NONBED OF CONFERENCE.

President E. Benjamin Andrews
01 Brown University is a pro-
nounced silver man and that
during his stay for several
i months in Europe which has
but recently terminated lie
studied' with the mind of a
'trained student the- trend of
bimetallism there. Therefore
when "he have his views on in-
ternational bimetallism and the
proposed . international bime
tallio conference today tnoseJgllVer mpn of 8CiPntific stripe is
views embodied the mostrecen
ectentific thought and obser-
vation upon the subjects from
the standpoint of a silver man.
Mr. Andrews talked with the
utmost freedom upon the ques-
tion of money and nrst upon
that of the proposed conference.
In the first place there is
jeally no need of a conference
in order to establish or re-establish
tlje value of silver ifr the
commercial world. If the Unit-
ed Slates were to insert into the
Bland ant the omittedt clause
providing for the free coinage
of silver international bimetall-
ism would be accomplished for
other nations wonld follow the
lead of this country.. .TSngUud
is jj nti re y wl Hi tig t oreetore vt h
freecoiR.gejif jfiliver in 4India
EnglaW'a contribuipn to bi-
metallism would be muchj larger
than either goltl.br silver men
Vi this city imagine. jn the
first place there would be the
reopening of the mints of Tndia
which would make a contribu-
tion that would be simply
enormons.. Then there might
be coinage of hair sovereigns
and the bank of England might
use Bilver for 20 per cent of its
reserve. These woald be con-
tributions the people of this
J country hae not taken into
account fully. . . .
Mr. Andrews laidt -that he
had observed in an interview
whichf Perry Belmont gave out
upon hie arrival from England
the other day that Belmont
suggested that in case prance
should asree to international
bimetallism it would be with
the agreement that she should
receive some tariff concessions
from the United States. Mr.
Andrews thought it probable
that in the conference France
might make some such demand
as this. It was natural for each
nation to drive as sharp d bar-
gain as possible in the deal.
In answer to a question as to
what in h.is opinion the outcome
of a conference would be Mt.

France were to hold a. confer-

tbein might make offers that
would materially aid. bimetal-.
lisra. Russia for example
which now holds great quanti
ties of gold might decide lb bny 1
no more gold and to buy large
quantities of silver. Holland
a small but rfch nation which
has long wanted bimetallism
would be another factor aiding
the cause. The only dilterence
today between gold -me and
the former would have bimetal
lism by setting -other nations to
"go into the husiness beforehand I

chase of jilVg'r- If internation-
al biwtlliiB is .established as
afrealt-ofjthe conference the
ratio wjll undoubtedly 1)8 15
ti.... That wjll .satisfy the sil-
vst men of this country. It
will wipe the silver question
from politjcs and. new issues
will be framed by political
Commenting upon the discov-
eries of gold in Alaska Mr. An-
lIusteari of there being dan-
ger that the price of silver will
go down there is more likeli
hood that it will go up' in rela
tion lo the price of gold and
will be retired from circulation
on account of its greater value.
If these reports of the finding
of gold in Alaska are all that
they now appear to be this
maV occur. The natural value
of silver as compared to gold is
about 15 or 16 to 1 because
that is about the proportion in
which the two metals.are mined.
But the amount of silver taken
putof the mines in proportion
to the amount of gold is steadi-
ly growing less so -that silver
is theoretically and "should be
actually increasing in value.
Ana all that stands in the way
of that increase is legislation
nothing but legislation."
