earitles obtainable to the backs as a
basis for their corporate existence,
and this is r fleeted in the advance of
these bonds to the premium so nun
that every d y tueir enforced purchase
becomes mure and more enor
mous. Banks now holding 3 per cent
bonds and newly oriraniza ca.tonai
banking asecciations are forced into
the market as purchasers of the 4 per
cent or the 4 i per cent bond?, and
this cor s'ant demand, in connection
with the prosptc ive scarcity already
referred to, eus'ains and lends still
farther to elevate the premium on
these bonds. As the time approaches
for the payment of the 4 per cent,
bonds it is reasonable to txpect a still
greater demand for the 4 per cen s.,
and it is a aues-t on of serious import
ance whether the banks can sflord to
ho'd or to boy 4 per cent, bonds after
1891. In the present age all business
men try to anticipate tutu'e conai
tions and to provide well azainst fore

exoected that the banks will not wait

olding of high rriced bonds. For this
reason it is not too early now
to consider what legislation may
be priper to remove this elemant
of future uncertainty from the national
banking lystem, and looking to the
' poetible considers ion cf this subject
bv Uonarers. 1 respectfully submit tne
following eta'ementof the question as
it appears from the point of view of
ficially occupied by the Comptroller of
the Currency. The fundamental pos
tulates underlying every banking
system established by law, whatever
may be its lorm, must necessarily be:
First Inst banks promote tne gen
eral welfare ol tne community: ana
Second That the particular r-ystf m
established by law is the best obtaina
ble under the conditions prevailing at
the time and place.
These postulates, therefore, nnderlie
our national bank laws. The first
postulate will not be questioned, since
no people in modern times have ever
risen to civilisation or mantained
their civilisation without banks; and
least of all can it be questioned in this
country where, besides 2868 national
banks now in operation, we have
over 5000 state banks, savings banks.
and private banks and bankers whose
operations extend into the minutest
ramifications of the employment and
resources of onr 60,000,000 of popula
tion. The second p s:nlate involves
the question whether the present
national bank system should be pre
served, ana n so, wnetner it is good
enough as it is or it caa be improved.
The national currency act of Febru
ary 12, 1863, was controlled as to its
purposes by the paramount necessity
ot lnaucng trie bants aad other capi
talists to become purchasers of govern
ment bonds under conditions that
would give a basis cf (olid value ts the
currency then being raid out ia im
mense vol onus under the p 'era a re of
military exicenci s; nence tne consoli
dation of these banks inta a national
banking system adapted to commer
cial and industrial needs appears only
as a sunorainfcte incident in ttegen
erai Bcneme. ai eariy, nowever, as
the year 1864 it wis perceived that
the general welfare of the people
would be promoted by giving greaier
conesiveoew anil metnoas to tne bi s
tem, regarded mora especially in its
banking tdan in i s currency ieatures
and from that time to this the effort
of this legislation has been to subordi
cate the issuing of currency to the
more important functions performed
by tne banns as institutions of dis
count and deposit. The effect of this
legislation and its Wisdom are exemp
lified in the present high credit and
tne consequent wide commercial use
fulness of national bank. If the svs.
tem could be preserved pnrely as one
oi aepo.-u ena discount there would
probably arise universal sentiment in
lavoroi btstowing opon its preserva
tion immediate and careful attention,
but it is doubtful whether the banks
wou'd find sufficient inducement to
remain in the r-ystem without enjoy
ing tome privileges as to the issue of
currency, and it has been questioned
whether there is power under the
constitution for the charter of na
tional banks, except as instrumental
ities for a money circulation. It fol
lows, therefore. that anr legislation
directed to the improvement and per-
, manent estab lahment of the national
Darning aystem must Include some
provision lor the maintenance of a
', national bank circulation, while, on
the other hand, it appears that what-
Yor opposition exists to the national
banks attaches to them mainly as
banks of issue and under our system
of government nothing caa be re
garded as permanently established
. until it has obtained the sup-
poit of a well settled public opinion ;
' hence it is evident that the problem
to be solved is how to remodel the
currency features of the national
bank system so as to obtain popular
approval of them. Objection to the
preeent national bank currency ap
pears to be comprieed within three

objections it is ans trered :
1. That the question as to having paper

blow to tbe ' organization in this

aonuta nunured ot tne several thou

fired at a diitancs of esi than ten feet

which saved the citizen's life. Thanks

action of the J udge. Gilmer thinks he
must have been followed by some an
archistic sympathizer who was in the

Jaaaea Knows the Mae Whe Threw
Chicago, III., November 29. It
was not generally known until today
that Henry Jansen, who made a mnr-,
derous assault upon his wife early Fri-'
day morning, was a member of the
"Noith Side Group," one of tbe most
rabid anarchists in the city, and tbe
night of the bomb explosion was
within a few f et of the place from
where the deadly missile was hurled
into the ranks of the marching po ice
men. Knowledge resulting from his
identification has led to the discovery
of what may be a definite clew to the
bomb thrower. The night the bomb
was thrown Jansen left bis wife about
7 o clock, stating that he had au im
portant anarchistic meeting to attend;
that there would be trouble of some
kind bef ire the niuht was over. He
did not return until after 4 o'clock the
following morning, and in reply tJ his
wile's question as to where he bal
been, significantly replied, "I told
you there would be trouble." His
s'atements never went beyond
this until about ten days
ago, when in an affectionate
and confiJential mood he informed
bis wife that he was present the nisrKt

to her feebleness and the nature of
