In reference to this in-; tho country with a sound currency, there seems to be every l..y a belter state offeelin-r aiming the Wing members of Congress. The more public opinion is mule to operate upon (..ingress, the better will be the feeling upon tins subject. 1 Members will bo controlled by their cnnsli. if n is made mmiifest that the .heme proposed vv,ll do some good, as most obviously it will, the greater will be the attachment for it.
