to romo to no conclusion until ho had in
quired into tho morits of tho now stoim
printing process and hand printing, tho lat

work as It should bo dono.
ltEOHOANIZINO THE PRINTING BUREAU.
It is now genorally concodod that tho
Bureau of nngraving and Printing Is to bo
thoroughly jcorganizod. Tho changos will
begin with tho uppolntmont of a now chief
nt an early dato and tho changes will bo in
tbo methods of work as much as In tho per
sonnel. Mechanically, artistically, financi
ally and in ovory othor way oxtonslvo
changes of ayBtom uro desired In tho pro
duction of United States notes and securi
ties. Ono of tho promlnont Idoas will bo to
bilng tho bureau moro closely Into harmony
with tho ofllco of tho Unltod Statos Treas
urer and with tho Administration. It Is
claimed that thoTrcasuror, who is rosponsl
bio for thoissuo and distilbutlon of tho
raonoy, should bo as closoly as posslblo iu
accord with tho mechanical branch of tho
service by which tho raonoy Is produced,
Tho changes contemplated havo already
comnionccd in tho method of supplying
notes aud Iu tholr preparation. Tho now
chief of engravers is gradually dovolopiug
n policy differing iu many matorlal ro
epects from tbo courso pursued by his pre
decessor. THE TREASURY RESERVE.
A very interesting question hasnrisou as
to tho legal status of tho Immouso Troasitvy
ictcrvo fund of $150,000,000 of Unltod
States notes. Tho vlows which Troasuror
Jordan advanced iu readjusting tho doht
statement carry with thorn tho Idoa that a
United States noto In tho possession of tho
Government Is not on assot or liability of
tho Government and Is not monoy, A
promiso to pay, iu tho possession of tho
person making tho promiso, Is not rogardod
as a (actor In calculating tho financial con
dition of tho holder. Undor this vlow tho
incoming Treasurer cannot consistently ro
coivo as monoy, for which ho and his
bondsmen aro respousllilo, this Immouso
fund of $100,000,000, which ho doos uot ro-
gard as an assot as long as It Is safely kept,
and which would becomo a liability If
stolon, This Interesting quostlon will prob
ably result in Trcasuror Jordan's accoptlng
tho rcscrvo undor protest, taking It out of
tho Treasury cash account' and treating it
as a special deposit, unless It should bo
deemed advisablo to seek permission from
Congress to destroy It.
