There is an influential movement
at present to revive interest in the
domestic cultivation of tobacco. By
special request the Hum.ktin pub
lishes a prize essay on the subject,
an instalment of which appears in
Tho Japanese Government has
nullified the clauses relating to con
sular jurisdiction in the tieaty with
Portugal, because tho Portuguese
Government recalled its Minister and
Consul-General, appointing resident
merchants as honorary consuls in
their stead. Portugal perhaps has a
ways and means committee at work.
HORNER'S BANKING BILL.
What is behind the notes to be is
sued by the Hnnk of Hawaii? Noth
ing but the securities deposited by
its borrowers. Section I of the bill
It shall be the duty of the Post-master-General
to loan the money
supplied to him by the Cabinet as di
rected by Section 2, in sums not less
than one hundred (S100) dollars, to
all legal applicants upon the securi
ties and to the amounts following,
that is to say: upon the pioinissory
note of the applicant with interest
payable thereon at the rate herein
after provided, this pioinissory note
to be secured by deposit of a sulll
cient number of interest-bearing
bonds of the Hawaiian Kingdom, at
ninety percent of the market value
thereof in gold coin, or by mortgage
of ie.il estate at not more than one
half of its taxable value at the last
assessment, or by bullion at SO per
cent of its market value.
It is by gelling into its vault these
valuable securities at the heavy dis
counts prescribed, probably, that
"the more .money drawn from it
the hank, tho richer it would be
come," as the author claims. But.
what about the hoi rowing public?
They are n quired to give security on
their notes, while they get not a
paiticle of substantial security on
the bank notes they receive. It is
unnecessary to aigue what the result
would be fiom such a one-sided ar
rangement, in a crisis of business de
pression or political unrest. The
author himself gives his whole posi
tion away, in an attempt to show
that "the Bank of Hawaii, if put in
operation, would do another thing
heretofore thought impossible, viz. :
It would reverse Crashum's currency
law which reads as follows: 'When
ever two or more currencies of equal
nominal, but different actual values,
are put in circulation side by side,
the cheaper will drive out and take
the place of the dearer !y a law as
inexorable as that of gravity.' "
This predicated reversal of a finan
cial law Mr. Horner undertakes to
demonstrate in this wise, his words
being condensed: Suppose the bank
to have loaned gold cjin intrinsically
worth 00 percent ot its face value,
the same amount of silver coin at 80
percent of its face value, and the
same amount of paper money worth
nothing intrinsically. As the bank
is compelled to take back any part
oi all of this money at its fate value,
the author answcis the query as to
which would be carried back, the
cheaper or the dearer, with, "All
must answer the cheaper." Then he
declares in triumph, "No other sys
tem of money could reveise that law
and drive all inferior currency out of
ciiculation, save the one foreshadow
ed in the bill noiv in the House for
the organization of the Bank of Ha
waii." So ho admits that his pro
posed paper is "inferior" currency,
to be driven out of ciiculation by the
operation of the law that brought it
into existence! That means that in
a contingency sure to arrive the bank
would collapse, having left in hand
nothing but its own notes pushed
back on it by the public. When it
foicclosed on a delinquent borrower's
securities, the purchase price would
also be paid in its own notes,
bank notes would indeed be
predated currency from the
because the law forbids the
from dealing in exchange. The pri
vate banks would simply refuse the
notes for exchange except at a dis
count that they could fix arbitrarily.
That alone would be sulllcient to put
silver as well as gold at a premium
over the rag money.

Cultivation and Preparation for
Prize Essiy for Ihc Amorioan Agri
culturist. HV .lUHsOK I'OI'CSOi:, 1)1 MONKIOUKUY
I commenced the cultivation of
tobacco about llfteen years ago; I
therefore write from experience, and
shall try to give that experience, in a
short and plain way.
Varieties. I have cult iv? led va
rious kinds of tobacco, but have
come to the conclusion that what we
call the Ohio seed-leaf is the best and
most profitable kind for general cul
tivation. There are other kinds of
tobacco that sometimes are profitable,
and do well, but most of these do
not cure out so well, nor color so
evenly, nor are they so line and sal
able as the seed-leaf. The Havana
tobacco is too small and has not the
fine llavor of the imported. The
Connecticut seed leaf 1 believe to be
identical with our Ohio seed-leaf;
the difference in the climate may
make a slight variation in the quality,
but we plant the Connecticut seed
leaf here in Ohio, and I don't think
they can be told apart. 'The most of
the tobacco raised in this district is
the seed-leaf, which is strong evi
dence that it is the best and most
profitable kind to raise here.
Seed. At topping-time a few of
the most thrifty stalks should be left
to grow without topping, for seed.
When the crop is cut, let the seed
stalks stand, stripping off the leaves
and suckers. As soon as the seed
pods are black, the seed is matured ;
then cut off the seed-heads below the
forks of the plant, and hang them in
a dry place, out of the reach of mice,
to cure. At leisure time, during the
winter, strip the seed-pods from off
the stalk, rub them in the hands un
til the seed is rubbed out, sift
through a line sitter, put in a dry
place, secure from vermin ot all
kinds, and it is ready to sow. I
have sowed seed six years old which
grew as well as new seed. I think it
is a good plan to raise seed enough
at any time to sow for ton years, as
it is thought to deteriorate by con
stant raising without changing. If
seed snaps or pops when it is thrown
on a hot stove, it will grow.
Piepaiing Seed Beds. There are
tivo plans of preparing beds for sow
ing seed ; the first, and best, is to
spade or plow a bed in rich, dry
ground, with a southern exposure;
the south end of a barn is a good
place, as the lellection helps to warm
the ground. Where you have tobacco-stalks,
as you make a furrow with
the plow or spade, fill one-third full
with the stalks and turn the next fur
row over them, and so continue until
the bed is broken up. The stalks
hold moisture, make the bed warm,
and help to drain it. Take well
rotted hog manure and spread over
the bed, to the depth of about two
inches, then harrow or rake until the
manure is thoroughly mixed with the
surface of the bed, and all is well pul
verized, and as fine as garden mold.
For a bed one rod wide and four
rods long take two common sized
table-spoonfuls (as much as will lie
on conveniently) of seed and mix it
with four quarts of ashes, or slacked
lime, and sow broadcast; the ashes
will enable the seed to be sowed even
ly ; then take a hand-roller and roll
the bed evenly, or place a board on
one end of the bed, walk on it to press
the ground to the seed, move it over,
and repeat this until the bed is all
pressed over. Another plan is to
bum a large brush heap in a clear
ing, or on any new ground, in the
evening; in the morning dig the
ground up with the ashes on; while
warm, rake the bed fine and sow the
seed as above directed. Very little
weeding is requited where the ground
is burned, as the lire destroys the
weeds and grass seeds.
If the weather is dry, the plants
will need watering after they are
sprouted, (which will be about three
weeks) ; in fact the surface of the
bed should be kept constantly moist;
the beds should bo kept clear of
weeds ; do not let the weeds get a
start of your plants or they will soon
choke them out. If the plants grow
well and evenly, the above sized bed
will plant four or live acres, but it is
always safe to have two or three such
beds, to guard against a failure, and
to supply your neighbors. The usu
al time to sow is fiom the middle of
March to tho tenth of April, or as
soon as the ground admitb of work
ing in the spring. 1 have known
seed sown in the fall make good
plants, but do not recommend it.
Soil. A rich, sandy, second bot
tom, 1 believe to be the best for
raising tobacco, although our choco
late colored uplands, when very rich
and highly manured, will grow an
excellent quality of tobacco, hut will
not yield us much to tho acre. Black
river bottoms will yield moio to the
acru than any other kind of laud, but
the tobacco is not of so fine a quality ;
it grows larger, has coarser steins,
and heavier body, and consequently,
in my opinion, is not so good for
wrappers or fine cut as the second
bottom or upland tobacco.
Manuring anil preparing for plant
ing. Tobacco is n gross feeder and
grows rapidly when once started,
therefore needs plenty of food to
make it grow well. Tliero should be
a good coat of clover to plow under ;
if the ground is naturally rich, this
alone will make a good crop, but hog
and stable manure, well rotted, is
what the tobacco, ns well as any
other crop, delights in, and the more
manure the better the tobacco. The
plan that I am now experimenting
on is, as soon as I cut my tobacco in
the fa.1I I give the ground a good
harrowing, and then drill in wheat;
the ground being well cultivated all
thu full, is clear of weeds and mellow
and needs no plowing. In the spring
I sow clover, after tho wheat is off;
1 keep tho stock off until about Sep
tember, to givo the clover a chance
to harden mid spread. 1 then let the
stock eat as low as they waul to,
which drives the clover to root anil
causes the crown to spread ; I do not
suffer slock to run on the clover iliu'
ing the winter or sprint'; about the
last of May or first of Juno 1 plow
the clover under, which is now in
blossom, and so 1 alternately keep
two fields in tobacco and wheat, at
the same lime feeding the ground a
crop of clover every two years; in
this way L expect my land to increase
in fertility all the time. The clover
turned under makes food for the cut
worms, and they trouble the tobacco
plants but little. We now harrow
thoroughly, following in the same
way that we plow, to make the sod
lie Hat and not drag up ; next the
roller is put on, and after the ground
is well rolled it should be again har
rowed, and, if cloddy, rolled again.
Make the ground in the best condi
tion possible, so that the roots of the
tobacco will have no trouble in pen
etrating the soil and searching for
food. My plan is to furrow cast and
west three feet apart, north and
south three and a half feet. I plow
the tobacco both ways, but do all the
hoeing, suckering, etc., north and
south. Some maik out the ground
three feet each way, but I think it
is too close. If the tobacco is large,
three feet does not give room to
work among it conveniently. 1 mark
out the ground with a small one
horse plow, going cast and west first,
finishing the way thai I make my
hills. The usual way to make tho
hills is with the hoc, making the hill
where the furrows cross each other,
drawing the dirt into a hill about as
large as for covering corn or potatoes.
With tho Hat part or back of the hoe
press or flatten the hill down to the
level of the surface of the ground,
taking care to have it clear of clods
or rubbish. I generally make my
hills with what we call a jumping
shovel the frame of a single shovel
plow, made light, witli a shovel
about eight inches square, put on in
the place of the common shovel.
Hitch a steady horse to this, start
him in the furrows, dip the shovel in
the middle of the furrows, and raise
it, depositing the dirt at the cross of
the furrows. Have a hand following
to level and pat down the hills, ami
lake out clods. In this way I made,
with the assistance of a boy fifteen
years old, about fifteen thousand
hills in a diy, while with the hoe
alone three or four thousand is a
good day's work.
