It is still very common in the western
states, more particularly beyond In
diana, but even in this western country,
paper money is coming into larger use.
and in time promises to be as plentiful
as in the east.
One trouble with paper money in the
west has been that it could not be kept
clean, and in many cities boards of
health have pronounced against it for.
sanitary reasons. This argument, how
ever, is losing its force in the face of
the possibilities of supply now offered
by a large number of subtreasuries. The
silver dollar became popular in the west
becauso of western iuterest in silver
production. It was sanitary, and the
fact that it was bulky did not seem
to make any lasting impression.
Silver Dollar Going.
As rapidly as the west will permit,
the silver dollars are being sent to the
treasury vaults in this city, and silver
certificates are being issued in their
place The familiar old "cartwheels"
are disappearing at the rate of several
millions a year. This exchange is be
ing encouraged by the government,
partly for the reason that it costs a
large sum each year to shi? silver back
'and'forth .over'the country by express
and partly because congress has for the
present permitted the treasury depart
ment to abandon the coinage of dollars.
During the fiscal year ending June
30, 1904, silver dollars to the value of
$10,101,650 were coined. During the
first half of the last 'fiscal year, July
1 to Dec. 31, 1904, only $310 were
coined, while there is not a single dol
lar bearing the date 1905. The silver
bullion in the treasury that is now
available for coinage purposes is being
used for half dollars, quarters and
dimes, and it is well nigh exhausted.
This subsidiary coinage is in such de
mand that the mints can scarcely sup
ply it in satisfactory amounts.' The
treasury was permitted to coin it as
long as bullion was available, without
limit, and the mints were kept busy
month after month, winter and sum
mer. The quarters and dimes are more
popular than the half dollars, and the
quarters are more popular than the
dimes. The half dollar is in constant
use, of course, but usually a shopper
would tather hav6 two quarters than
one half dollar. The size of the coins
respectively explains their favoritism.
Purchase of Silver, Again.
It is probable that congress next
winter will be* asked to provide fpr
the purchase o bullion for subsidiary
coin. As noted above, all the bullion
that can be used for coinage purposes

has now been disposed of, and the de
mand for the small coins will soon be
so great as to require further purchases
of bullion. This can only be done thru
act of congress. The treasury depart
ment will probably lay the subject be
fore the president in a short time.
One of the big wholesalers in New
York only the other day, in talking
with a middle west customer, remarked
that the sales of his house in the west
had for some time been indicating ,a
larger use of paper money in that sec
tion. Asked for an explanation of his
words, he replied that in former years
his western customers, who are largely
big department store proprietors of the
Mississippi and Missouri valleys,
bought very few pocketbooks suitable
for carrying paper money coin purses
were greatly in demand, with only an
occasional demand for the regulation
pocketbooks. Now, however, he con
tinued, the pocketbooks were in de
mand and the demand for coin purses
It is one of the wonders of the gov
ernment what becomes, of the silver
pieces that are coined year after vear.
After allowing for growth in popula
tion and for. extension of trade,, it is
still true that the mints are turning out
hundreds of thousands of dollars of
fractional coin yearly that apparently
does not go into trade channels. Dur
ing the fiscal year 1905 the government
turned out 152,402,302 pieces of gold,
silver, nickel and copper money, worth
in the aggregate $91,162,729. Of this
sum, $774,193.68 was represented by the
deispised copper cent pieces, $1,290,-
874.05 by 5-cent pieces, and $2,377,-
201.10 by silver dimes. Of quarters
there were made 13,896,498 pieces
worth, of course, just one-fourth that
figure in money, and of half dollars,
6,523,470'were made. This work is kept
up year after year by the mints, and
yet the demand for the subsidiary .coin
age is always unsatisfied. '!o^
The popular explanation of this con
tinued demand is that all over the
country there are people Who save
their money in old stockings instead of
trusting to the banks. Such people
would obviously put away gold and
silver rather than paper, and as their
savings are probably by the little, they
probably save more of the subsidiary
coins than they of the dollars or of
the more valuable gold pieces. There*
is probably a good deal of truth in "this
explanation, but whether there is or not
