A branch of the Knlr Exchanges
leagues Is to be formed In San Fran
cisco. Tho organization is interna
tional In scope and has for Its purpose
nil adjustment of monetary nines be
tween the oriental countries and En
tope and America. It Is the theory of
the members of the leagues ttjat the
great fluctuation InMhe value of silver
in Asia Is lu a large measuro lesiion
slble for the financial panics that pe
riodically sweep around the world. An
adjustment of allies, It h) contended,
will mean the expansion of the trade
of Europe: and America In, the lands
ecrnss the Pacific, says thu Call.
The movement has been Inaugurated
In San Francisco by Colvln 11. Urowu,
the gencml secretary of tho society,
Urown, wjris formerly tho New York
representative of tho California Pro
motion Committee, is at present lu
this city In, thu Interests of the leagues.
The first meeting will be held here
cu November 24, when, the subject a 111
bo discussed by Morton Frcwen, n
leading financier of Nijw York. Kre
wen Is widely known oh a writer on
financial topics. Ho Is a son In-law of
August Uclmont. From hero ho will
go cast, speaking at Salt latko City,
Denver and other lxmits.
John Hays Hammond is one of the
leading spirits ot the. movement In
America. James J. Hill, the railway
magnate, is alr.o deeply interested, as
was the lato E. II. Harrlman.
Drown outlined yesterday the plan
and scope of thu work lu hand. Ho
"The Fair Exchanges leagues was
orguulzed by leading economists and
financiers In Europo and New York.
Many of those connected with tho
movemcnlMiava an International repu
tation. The president of thu leagues
Is Edward Tuck ot Paris. The Eng
lish members arc Sir William Houlds
worth of Manchester, Herbert Gllibs
nnd Lord Desborough of London. One
of tho most active New Yorkers lu the
movement is John Hays Hammond.
Cause of Panics.
"Tho movers In the Fair Exchanges
leagues believe that financial panics
have been largely due to falling ex
changes In the orient, that the'so fall-
i lug exchanges lesben the ability ot
800,000.000 peoi lu to buy American and
Europoan products and act as n bonus
In tho manufacture by them ot such
1 products for export.
"For 1,000 years or more tho orient
has been accumulating sliver. It Is tho
money metal ot almost one-halt tho
I Aumnn race. Statistics compiled over a.
period ot many jours show that wages
In tho orient havo fluctuated to a very
small degree. Tho wages ot labor paid
In the rupee are practically the sumo
today as they weie in 187.1.
"The oriental, buying from us, takes
his silver to tho bank and buys a gold
bill of exchange, paying silver for tho
bill. Suppose he buja a bolt fit cloth
or a ltouml ot flour, nnd, say, tho gold
price In America was $5. In 1873 ho
took three of, his dollars or tools aud
bought his bill of exchange. In 1890
kllvcr fell. Then he had to. taku'flvu (
his tnels or silver dollars. In 1907 sil
ver fell again, and the oriental round
In order to buy his bill ot exchange for
$5 he hail to pay S8, In other words,
tho prico of his flour or cotton cloth
had Increased from S3 to $8. The re
cult has been that he has quit buying.
"In 1888 the British government np-
pointed a commission on gold nnd sil
ver. This commission reported prac
tically unanimously in favor of a plan
that would raise tbe price of Bllver aud
thereby tho rate of exchange lu tho
orient: They suggested that small notes
bo Issued that would not be legal ten
der for more than 2 sovereigns, or $10;
tliat theso notes be secured by silver
icoliivor bullion;, that tho purchaso ot
tho necessary silver bo extended over
a period of years, and that these notes
when issued and as issued be used to
retire gold certificates an.d gold, coin
Into a central reserve, This Is' n plan
vhlch the Fair Elxcbuuges leagues be
lieved to bo entirely feasible,"
