A Republican Senator from Nevada who had been instrumental in the drafting of the Fourteenth Amendment securing citizenship rights to Negroes, Stewart argues for the free coinage of silver. "The silver question is a contest between European bondholders and the laborers of the world. The National Banks of the United States are the allies of European bondholders." He denounces their "war upon silver," and discusses his financial and monetary policy for the United States. "A plea for the free coinage of silver inspired by the Comstock Syndicate." Eberstadt.
