- Secretary Shaw reports that during the last session of Congress, Senator Aldrich argued that the secretary of the treasury has the authority to purchase silver for subsidiary coinage. Shaw discusses the merit of this claim. He believes this issue is not related to the purchase of silver for coinage into standard dollars. Unlike Ebenezer J. Hill, Shaw does not think the subject should be made an issue in the campaign.
