Charles Carroll Goodwin (1832-1917) was the editor of the Salt Lake Tribune and author of many books. He argues that without silver as money, "the great mass of workers will degenerate into peons, or in irresistible fury arise, and, through the horrors of revolution, first create chaos and then trust to bring out of that chaos a new creation...." OCLC locates only four copies: University of California at Berkeley (2), Georgetown, and Northwestern.
