TUESDAY EVE'G, MAR. -1. 1574.
THE rCr.DA-IKI.TAI_- OF FIMA-CI
. Both private citizens nnd legislators gen
erally dismiss the whole subject of finance
with the discouraged confession that "it is
100 deep for them." In the bewildering
I vortex of talk most minds become hope
lessly confused, and abandon all attemnts
to solve the difficult problem of finding
the best remedy for admitted defects in
the present system. Much ot this difficul
ty comes from not accepting some simple
and admitted truths as the starting point of
discussion. All thinking is fruitless that
doeß not follow a logical method. There
are first principle, to be comprehended in
every subject, upon which all reasoning
abont it must be bottomed, or the mind
is soon lost in a chaotic jumble.
We believe the following may be safely
accepted as incontrovertible truths, and in
the main they are accepted by all writer?
of high authority on finance :
First. Money is an instrument to effect
exchanges of service or commodity. It is
a tool or implement just as certainly as I
plough, an axe, or a wagon.
Second. The material of which moncj
is made is not an essential fact as to iti
performance of the functions of exchange,
any more than the color or the quality o
the paper upon which a deed or note o
hand is written. The precious metals wit!
us happen to be tho conventional standart
Third. Money being an implement o
transferor exchange, should be at all time
free from monopoly, and the amount in cir
dilution should be left to the law of suppb
Fourth. It is clearly proved by ex
perience that there cannot be an injiiriou
excess of good money in circulation.
Fifth. Arbitrary limits upon the vo
ume of the currency are therefore unnei
essary and even dangerous to the pros
perity of a people by arresting the deve!
opment of industry and trade and produ.
iig ruinous panics.
Sixth. The constitution gives to tl
general government the sole power to co
money ; and this it is bound to exercise
such a manner as to furnish to the peop
the best currency pas _ble, and in sue
amount as may li. needed for the husinef
of the country.
Seventh. The exercise of the power l
coin money carries with it the right ai
duty to issue the same, and this shou
be done in such manner as to allow eve
citizen to purchase it on the same terms.
Eighth. To allow any class of citizens t
exclusive right of purchasing money of t
government or of engaging in retailing
as bankers, is a monopoly of the most .
structive and dangerous character. It
precisely as unjust and injurious to t
body of citizens as if Congress shoi
grant the exclusive right to manufaclt
and Bell all agricultural and mechanic
implements to one firm or corporation.
Ninth. The currency used by tho pco|
and made a legal tender should be accept
by the government itself, for all dues.
Tenth. Money or currency need not hr
an intrinsic value, but to be api
feet instrument of exchange, it must
convertible ultimately into all commoditi
including gold and silver. Immediate ct
vertibility into bonds which pay gold
terest will answer just as well. Ifsu
currency is inter-convertible it will possi
elasticity a-s well as soundness, and th
become a perfect instrument of exchange,
The present money system violates t
above principles flagrantly :
First. An arbitrary limit is fixed up
the volume of the currency.
Second. It is issued primarily to th
class of citizens who first presented thei
selves with bonds to purchase it, and
subsequent coiners are exclueted from pi:
Third. It is thus a monopoly, as
more currency can be issued, and th
already issued is in the hands of priva
dealers in money, who lix their own ten
of rent for its use.
Fourth. The currency is consequent
no.i-elastic, and confines the expandir
business of the country in iinwholesou
Fifth. It is defective in lacking conver
tiblity into gold and silver or its equivalen
The repeal of the convertibility clause
the legal tender act destroyed the logic
tiasis of th? currency, and left it support'
only by the generous faith of the peopl
who had been grossly outraged by this a
of repudiation on the part of the gofer
Sixth. The present currency not on
la.ks in volume but, in the limited area
its circulation. Our National Bank nott
whose securities are convertible into co
in every market in the world, are of i
value outside of our own country. ¥
were on a specie basis long ago, but v
lack the machinery to realize it in practic
What are the remedies ?
First. To remove all arbitrary limi
upon the volume of the currency.
Second. To restore inter-convertibilii
of bonds and legal tenders.
Third. If banks are to be chartered b
the government at all, to provide for ot
central institution, uniting the credit <
' the jp-veiiiment with that of its citizen!
whose notes should be redeemable in golt
and good in all the markets of the world.
Pouiih. The bill for the National Ei
chequer, now pending before Congresi
meets this prone necessity for a circulatic
which is accredited-all over the world.
It, harmonizes with the principles abo\
announced, and will steadily gain frient
as its provisions are more closely tlmlic
The occurrences of the last few days
the state treasurer's1 office, as developi
in the recent proceedings in "court, hai
startled, and we may say painfully sat
delicti, tho whole community. We sin
cerely bespeak for those men hitherto tin- -r?
suspected of wrong a most charitable jp
construction of every fact in their favor.
A blameless life ought to count for much
in such a trial. Colonel Mayo's hereditary
tendencies ought to be considered. Sym- ,
pathy for the wife and little ones may net st( i
influence a court of justice, but it may ne
well plead for that large charity which <lr:
sooner or later all of us so greatly need in *
our imperfect lives. We have no heart to j t
make partisan recriminations, and we m<
trust that we shall hear no more of them d°
from the Conservative press. All men
may well pray to be saved from tbe tempta- j„
tion which ensnares unwary feet daily lo '
