TIIE NEW UNITED STATES LOAN.
From the A'. F. Tribune.
This loan must be made a saoeesa. Possibly
it may bo found expedient by a future act of
Congress to raise the rate of interest to fire
Eer cent, npon the entire amount. This can
e determined only by testing the "markets
of the United States and of Europe.. As the
new bonds will be free from looal and na
tional taxation, whiob, taken together, will
not in most of our cities amonnt to less than
two per cent., the interest derived from the
five per cent, bonds will be equivalent to
that which is derived from seven per cent,
bonds if Bubjeot to such taxation. If the
income tax, which is at present less
than one-half of one per cent, of the in
terest, should be removed, yet the looal taxa
tion, amounting to not less than one and
one-half per cent., will remain, and in that
case the five per cent, untaxed loan will pay
the same net interest to the holder as a six
and one-half per cent, loan would pay if sub
ject only to local taxes. This rate of interest
will insure the ultimate absorption of these
five per cent, bonds by banks, insurance
offices, and by capitalists who seek a secure
and permanent investment of trust funds
here and abroad.
That the United States are amply able to
pay the public debt, and have given to the
world the most Solemn pledge that it shall be
folly and faithfully paid, no one can doubt
who is acquainted with the state of publio opi
nion, or with the Constitution itself, which
provides that the obligations of the United
States shall not be impaired, while on the
other band the debt incurred in maintaining
the Rebellion shall not be assumed or paid,
either by the States individually or by the
Ther,e is but one danger to which the publio
was formerly exposed. It was discovered in
the early years of the war, and has been more
fully developed by later experience. Formerly
it was the practice of the Treasury Depart
ment to manufacture the publio securities at
Washington by persons employed in the
Printing Bureau, and the result of this ex
periment was not satisfactory to the Trea
sury Department, to Congress, or to those
who were interested in Government issues.
It was so obviously subject to great abuse
that it was condemned by the joint
investigating committee of the
House and Senate, in their ample
report of March 8, 1869, and by the report
of the lion. Qeorge S. Boutwell, Secretary
of the Treasury, who stated, in substanoe,
that for the purpose of giving the highest
degree of security against a repetition of the
unfortunate irregularities disclosed in the
committee report, he had adopted the plan
which had been also sanctioned by that com
mittee, namely, to have all the Treasury
securities so prepared as to require at least
three imprints upon every pieoe of paper;
one to be made by one bank note engrav
ing company, of unquestioned responsi
bility; a second imprint to be made by
another of such companies both of which
Bhould be wholly disconnected with the
Treasury Department, and in a different city;
and the last imprint to be made by the Feint
ing Bureau in the Treasury at Washington.
All paper to be used was to be manufactured
at still a third and distant point, to be deliv
ered under special safeguards, and to be of a
peouliar character. The paper manufacturer
and the two companies thus became guards
npon each other and upon the employes in the
rrinting Bureau, and the Printing Bureau a
guard over them, and thus all probable chances
of over-issues, duplications, or other fraud
seemed avoided. This plan of manufacturing
the Government securities, which, as stated
in his official report, has been adopted by the
Secretary of the Treasury, has met with the
approbation of all financial men who are ao-
-quainted with the subject, and has justly
secured among capitalists a feeling of confi
dence that there is now little danger of their
waking up some years hence to find their
vaults filled with false or duplicate bonds,
which might be repudiated by the Govern
ment, though printed from genuine plates
and issued from its Printing Bureau. Some
rumors have been, started of late that the
Secretary proposes to abandon this plan of
manufacturing the new bonds, and to return
to the Boheine which experience has proved
so disastrous. We do not credit them, for i
is not probable that Mr. Boutwell will aot
contrary to the assurances he has given to the
public in his report, or that he will, for any
cause, endanger the suocess of his new loan
by diminishing confidence in the safety of his
THE TltUE COMPROMISE BETWEEN
TIIE TWO WINGS OF THE REPUBLI
From the K. F. Times.
The recent votes of the House on the duties
npon coal and salt must .convince many He
publicans of the fact we urged so strongly
and frequently more than a year ago that
the moderate party on the tariff question is
extremely strong throughout the country.
It is all very well for the Pennsylvania lie
publicans to seek to bolster up their looal in
terests to an extreme degree, or, on the
other hand, for the ultra free-traders
of Missouri and the West to air
their theories for universal free-trade
and direct taxation. The nation at large
favor 8 neither of these ultraisms. The
people know, whatever they may think of the
abstract benefit of free trade, that the interest
on the debt and the sums towards its redemp
tion must be paid from indireot taxation.
and that no form of this burden is so little
felt as the duties of a tariff. Undoubtedly,
In a purely abstract view, the most just and
sound method of taxation is the direct one;
but praotically the people will not bear it,
and they pay most easily what they do not
know to be paid to the tax-gatherer.
Taxes in this country must always be in
direct. And as the consumption by this na
tion of laiuries will always include a vast
amount of products of foreign countries,
these imports will always form the favorite
objeot of taxation. The vast and increasing
agricultural districts of the country, or the
desire to have all their greatest necessities
In production burdened with duties beoause
certain monopolies in the Central and East
ern States claim a bountiful protection from
the Government. Even New England has
mainly abandoned her former demand for
tiigh protective tariffs. With this strong
roartv in the West and Eant surmortino a
revenue tariff, there will soon appear an ally
In the South, whose interest must always be
In low duties. The result is what we predioted
more than a year ago. that the medium tariff
party, being able on many points to include
from 40 to 100 Democratic votes la CoBgresa,
and holding a strong position in the Repub
lican party, will substantially control the
balance of power on this question in both
houses of Congress.
If the monopolists and high-protective
wing will only regard this fact reasonably,
and aot accordingly, it will benefit the whole
Republican party, both now and in the future
Presidential election. Let them give up the
effort to protect monopolies any further; let
them abandon high duties, and suffer iron
and coal and woel and lumber to take their
chance on a moderate revenue tax, or with no
Government aid at all. Their constituents
have either sufficiently enriched themselves,
or they have proved to the whole people that
these interests cannot float without an assist
ance from the Government which is a publio
burden. Let the monopolist wing now yield
to the inevitable, and aocept a carefully
framed revenue tariff.
If, however, they are obstinate, and ob
struct every moderate reform in the tariff
because they cannot sufficiently protect their
own interest, there is imminent danger of a
worse thing coming upon them, and upon
the country. There is undoubtedly a body
of the Democrats who would see with indif
ference the repudiation of the national debt,
and would hail such a lightening of the cus
toms duties as' would practically pre
vent the payment of the interest, and en
tirely shut out any possibility of ever
meeting the principal. If the revenue re
formers were rendered desperate, they
might be driven into a serious revolt from
the national party, and, with the Democrats
and the South, sweep away the most import
ant portions of even a revenue tariff, and
put a Democratic administration in Washing
ton on the basis of low taxes and repudia
tion. We do not suppose for a moment that
the present Kepublican "revenue reformers,"
who include some of the most honored and
intelligent members of the party, propose or
aim at such a disastrous culmination of their
efforts. We only warn the monopolist and
the ultra protectionist that such a fruit of
their selfish policy is among the possibilities.
Let them in time govern their course accord
ingly, and abandon extreme claims which the
country will not sanction.
The true compromise between the wings
of the llepublican party is the formation of
a committee of moderate views, who shall
frame for the next session a medium revenue
tariff, with sole and exclusive reference to
lightening the burdens of taxation, and at
the same time raising revenue enough to
meet all the demands of the Treasury. Under
such a tariff they oould go before the country
in the next Presidential eleotion, and carry
everything before them. The nation at large
neither want monopoly nor repudiation. The
medium course will be the reasonable and
BUTLER IN HOT WATER.
From the K. Y. World'
An eel in the well-sanded fist of a kitchen
maid, who holds the snake-like squirmer
tight and applies the knife to take off its
skin, is not quite an image of felicity; and
yet the eel might be congratulated by its.
brother the lobster, dropped alive into scald
ing water and remorselessly boiled from black
to red. If Butler had succeeded in intro
ducing his Ku-klux bill his torments would
have been like those of the unskinned eel in
the well-sanded hand of relentless Biddy; but
he has escaped that form of agony by being
dropped at once into the boiling kettle. Read
the proceedings in the House of Representa
tives on Thursday. Butler oould not have
been more unhappy if he had been tossed
by his fellow-members into a caldron of
.ueiore tne new Hampshire election it
seemed a settled thing that Congress would
not adjourn without passing a strong Ku-klux
bill. This was understood to ' be the main
reason for extending the session. It was at
first given out that General Grant would
send in a special message urging suoh legis
lation. J. he Kepublican newspaper organs
sounded forth their preludes, the heaving,
deep-lunged bellows of the Inoune rever
berating its hoarsest bass. It
was said, and sung, and shouted, and
bellowed, as if all the bulls of Bashan
and the cattle on a thousand hills
had joined in the chorus, that the one indis
pensable duty of Congress, before it ad
journed, was to pass a good, tough, retribu
tive act, which could not be "ohawed up" by
the; terrible Ku-klux. What an opportunity
for the irrepressible Butler! A flood-tide of
Republican sentiment seemed moving and
swelling in one direction, and he had only to
be the first in launching his bark to float it,
covered all over with pennants and streamers,
into the harbor ef a secure popularity. Happy,
As wild hlB thoughts and gay of wing
As den'i garden bird."
To be sure, he had competitors in this raoe
for popularity. Half a soore of treason
scenting, popularity-hunting Radicals busied
themselves in drafting Ku-klux bills; but
Butler's superior alertness, dexterity, sinewy
English, and hatred of the South, eclipsed
his competitors. His bill was preferred and
indorsed by a caucus of the Republican mem
bers of the nouse, and was under disous
sion in a caucus of the Republican Senators.
Butler seemed the rising demagogue, the man
skilled to float on "a tide in 'the affairs
of men which taken at the flood leads on
to fortune," when, all of a sudden, the New
Hampshire election falls upon Congress like
a thunder-clap. The tide had swiftly
receded, and poor Butler was left a stranded
hulk upon the beaoh. A New England man,
aspiring to be the New England leader, he
was flung overboard by New England influ
ence. Speaker Blaine drew, and Mr. Peters,
of Maine, offered, the resolution which ripped
open the balloon in which Butler was mount
ing to the clouds, and dropped him, without
a parachute to break his fall, upon the stony
ground. The New Hampshire eleotion had
taught the Representatives from the adjaoent
State of Maine a little wisdom, and New Eng
land deserted and humiliated Butler at the
very moment when he supposed that all the
New England members would be a tail to his
mounting kite. There will be no Ku-klux
bill passed this session, and Grant, Butler,
Greeley, and company "hide their diminished
heads. There is now seme hope that the
disgusted Republicans will consent to an
early adjournment, whioh is the best thing
they can do to spare the pride of General
Grant. His Santo Domingo scheme is a
wreck now, and his friends, if be has any,
ahould take pity on him and save him from
the mortification of an adverse vote by Con-
cress. By December other subjects will
oooupy publio attention, and during the sum
mer the Santo Domingo job will die a quiet
natural death, whereas if it were brought to
a vote at thin session, on the heels of the
New Hampshire election, the President would
be again put to open ahame.
Butler' ill-temper and rabid abuse of his
fellow-Republicans show from what a height
be has fallen. But he retains something of
his wonted cunning, beeing that Grant is
deserted and repudiated by New England,
I Butler turns against him too, and flvuta the
Influence at "the other end of the avenue."
Nay, in his published card he espouses the
cause of Sumner, and awkwardly insinuates
that he considers him an injured man,
although it is notorious that Sumner was de
posed and degraded in subserviency to
General Grant's wishes. This shows bow
ready Butler is to throw off the mask and
cease to be Grant's parasite, as soon as Grant
is deserted by fortune.
