But the debt paying power of silver it will be maintained, would con tinue and the unfortunate debtor would be enabled to procure with comparative ease enough of the debased coin to meet his obliga tions. Consequently, a debased coin would for a time prove a great gain to debtors, of whom the farm ing class Includes many. The South being heavily burdenod with debt has nothing to tear from cheap ...
