“Gold is a wonderful clearer of the understanding; it dissipates every doubt and scruple in an instant, accommodates itself to the meanest capacities, silences the loud and clamorous and brings over the most obstinate and inflexible. Philip of Macedon refuted by it all the wisdom of Athens, confounded their statesmen, struck their orators dumb, and at length argued them out of their liberties.” –ADDISON.
Speech of hon. John p. Jones, of Nevada, on the free coinage of silver; in the united states senate, may 12 and 13, 1890. Washington. 1890.
