Mr. Vernor's bill to limit the ex

bill provides that all liens and mort

shall he a lieu upon and cover only
the crop or crops of cotton grown on
thc laud upon which said lien or
mortgage is given, and upon no
other crop or crops whatsoever. Mr.
Vernor called attention to conditions
in this State which are producing
unrest. The average cotton factory
operative makes as much in one day
as the farmer does in three. Ho re
futed tho argument that tho passage
of this law would cause an increase
in the cotton acreage, contending
that tho effect would be to make
fanners deny themselves unnecessary
luxuries. Why don't people plant
more brcadstuffs ? Because they
are taken from them in the fall of
the year at a price which makes thc
planting a loss. The bill woidd pro

Senator Mnuldiu's broad tire bil!
brought out a great deal of discus
sion pro and con. Senators living in
hilly counties especially opposed the
bill on tho ground that the wagons
would be liable to slip in ditches on
th?' side of the roads, owing to the
rounded shape in which roads gene
rally are built. The bill finally
passed without a division as general
law, making it unlawful to sell nar
row tires after January 1, next, and
to use them after 1 00 I.

propositions by a vote of 21 to 'J'2.

WASHINGTON, January IO.-Sena
tor MoLaurin, of South Carolina,
made the principal speech upon thc
currency hill in tho Senate today.
Ho devoted his remarks to an amend
ant which he had proposed, provid
ing for the repeal of the ten per cent
lax upon tin' issue of State hanks,
which he claims to he the host of
Democratic doctrine. Ile said:
Mr. J'resident, I shall ask thc in
dulgence of thc Senate at this time
to present a few thoughts on the
merits of the amendment whioli 1
have introduced to tho currency bill.
Mr. President, it is claimed by the
Senator from li bode Island that it
has been framed for the purpose of
placing all of our money upon a
sound basis and so remedying the
defects of our present national bank
ing system that the smaller places
may have the benefits of whatever
gooil may How out of the national
banking law. It is useless at this
time for mc to discuss thc question
of the comparative merits of gold
and silver as money metals, lt is
useless for mc to discuss thc merits
of thc present national system.
AN KXISTINO HKl'El'T ADMITTKIL
The Republicans in the Senate arc
convinced that the present national
bank law is defective, in that it does
not adequately circulate money in
the smaller places, or they would
never have introduced this bill.
There must have been a recognized
evil, or they would not have tried tc
provide a remedy. They propose
in their bill to remedy thc situation
by giving us more banks under thc
national banking law and to allow
those banks to issue a little largei
circulation. This remedy might give
us more hope were it not for the fact
that in many sections of tho United
States thc national banking business
has never paid and cannot pay undci
thc present national banking law
Tho avenues ol profit through whici:
the national banks aro allowed tc
derive their sustenance do not o list
to a sufficient extent in many local i
ties of the United States to make
them profitable. In the New Kng
land States and the Eastern States
where the forms of securities ii
which national banks tin deal con
stitute a considerable proportion o
thc property <>f thc people, thesi
banks can make money. In tin
West and South, where such securi
ties form but a small portion of tin
business assets, national banks can
not make money.
NATIONAL HANKS INAPKtJi: ATK l>
A U II M T I .Tl' KAL SUCTIONS.
Mr. President, no legislation cai
enable these banks in such localities
to make money without changing
the form of property with which the)
are allowed to deal or thc nature o
thc assets thc people possess. Under
thc present banking law, as showr
by the last statement of the Comp
trollor of the Currency, 17 per cent
of thc national banks in tho Weston
Stales have oithov failed or gone inti
liquidation. With this record botan
thc business men what inducement cai
be held out for the establishment o
new banks? The chances arc ovoi
that the bank will go out of exist
enco and far more than even that i
will fail to make money. In th
Pacific States, according to the sam
authority, I I per cent of thc nalionn
banks organized have failed or gon
into liquidation. In thc Middl
States ot> per cent of thc banks 01
gani/.cd under t he nat ional bi.i kin
law have failed or gone into liquid)
lion. In the Southern States 'M pr
cent of the banks organised undi
the national banking law have oitlu
failed or gone, into liquidation. I
the Haslem States '.'O per cent han
failed anil in the New Knglan
States indy lb per cent.
Mr. President, thc success of th
national banks depends not upon th
number of the banks nor their distr
billion, but upon the character of th
investments ol' thc communities i
which these banks do husmos
They have not paid in the South i
West and they will not pay in tl
South or West. More banks wi
only create a greater COinpOtitic
for a kind of business that now hi

Mr. President, it matters not what
our circulating medium may ho por
capita if that circulating medium is
not equally distributed throughout
'the country. If the circulating
medium is $'25 per capita and this is
HO distributed that it is *150 in iTow
York and $15 in South Carolina, tho
business of the East will continuo to
ho done at tho expense of other sec
tions of the country, which is not
only unjust, hut denotes a very un
healthy condition of the body politic.
It has been truthfillly said that tho
circulating medium constitutes the
blood of the linancial body; tho banks
arc tho arterias through which it is
distributed to all parts of the system;
the Federal Government is the heart,
the duty of which it is to pump the
blood into all parts of the body. In
thc physical body, if certain arteries
have too much blood and others too
little, the result is sickness, paralysis
and death. That is just thc trouble
today with our financial system.
?Some of the arteries arc over
charged with blood, while others
have too little ; hence certain parts
of the body suffer from a lack of cir
culation. The present bill is the
prescription for this trouble. We
are in consolation as to whether or
not this remedy is proper and suffi
cient. It provides for moro ar t er ie ?
in the parts of thc body which now
suffer from lack of circulation, but
does not provide for introducing the
blood into those arteries. The trou
ble is not that wc have not enough
arteries, but that the arteries we
now have arc not acting properly
from want of nourishment.
TAXc.llM.H IMtOlMiKTY 1JKTTI?K SKCUlt
1TY THAN l'M.l'CTUATIN<; VAI.UKS.
Mr. President, my amendment is
for the purpose of providing new
blood and not new arteries. Tho
people of the .South have cotton,
rico and sugar. They have stocks
ami bonds. The people of tho West
have cattle, grain and minerals.
They do not have stocks and bonds.
We want some way in which wc
can uso our cotton and sugar, they
their cattle and grain, for thc pur
pose of securing a circulating medium
with which to do business. The
peoi lc of thc Kast have stocks and
bo'.Js. They already have a way to
secure thc necessary circulating
medium with which to do business.
More banks may benefit them. More
national banks will not benefit us,
because we do not own the kind of
property upon which the national
banks do business. The Kast has
practically a monopoly of that class
of property, and consequently when
the Southern banks want money
with which to move and handle the
cotton crop they must go Kast to get
it. When the Western bankers
want to move the cattle or the grain
they go Kast to get thc money. Thc
circulating medium is in tho Kast.
and the West, and South, when they
require fr? h blood, have to call upon
the Kast for it, and within twelve
months it is ul) congested in the
Mr. President, the tax books ol
the South ami of the West show
that the people of those sections art

They are not lacking in property
they aro not lacking in bushiest

and yet they have no money.

cently ia an opon lotter to a friend
in South Carolina:
"I regard tho repeal o? thc 10 per
cent, tax of far moro value to tho
welfare of tho great masses of the
people than the free coinage of silver.
The present evil in our monetary
system is the inadequacy in tho vol
ume of currency and the inequality
of its distribution-the latter the
greater of the two evils. This ine
quality of distribution would be cor
rected if wc could have local State
hanks of issue, under proper safe
guards, and just so much currency
would be put out by them as tho
local demands required. It has
always struck me as very nbsure to
suppose that any State would or
could permit 'wildcat banking,' which
is about thc only argument ever
urged against State banks of issue.
No State, under tho modern meth
ods of transacting business through
quick correspondence by mail and
wiro, and the vigilance of thc com -
mercial and business agencies, could
tolerate loose or 'wildcat banking1
for forty-eight hours, and there is
no good reason why State bank cur
rency could not be made as sound
and safe as the present national bank
"I have said the free coinage of
silver would inevitably follow thc
reopening of State banks, and for
this reason: These banks would
absorb every dollar of coin, both
gold and s'lvcr, as security for their
circulation and to maintain whatever
reserve the law might require. For
domestic purposes, as a domestic
currency, silver is today as good as
gold. Silver only becomes embar
rassing when transactions are had
with foreign countries. Like gold,
it passes only for its bullion value in
foreign countries, but at homo it is
taken at par of its present weight
and fineness. I say, therefore, for
all domestic purposes silver is as
good as gold, and there is no reason
why it should not be admitted to free
coinage and used by local banks as a
redemption and reserve fund."

During thc panic of 187:1 it was
impossible for the banks of the
South, to :.' iain money in Now York
with which to handle the cotton
crop, and the banks of the West ex
perienced the same difficulty as to
tho grain of that section. The banks
of New York relieved the financial
stringency there by thc issuance of
clearing house certificates and in this
they wore assisted by the IT ni ted
States treasury. Thc banks of the
South and thc banks of the Wost
immediately formed clearing house
associations and issued clearinghouse
certificates in regular form, as is
shown by tho one which 1 will now

tion intervening. We have the pro
perty, wo have thc resources, and
we want to know whether or not
those who lia ve no resources in thc
way of products and whose aggre
gate property is less than that of tho
South and West combined shall
have all the money. I have no fight
to make upon national bank circula
tion, hut that circulation has been
cornered. I want for my people a
circulation that has not been cor
? nered. I want it issued under tho
wisest restrictions of the State in
which it is to circulate, but I do not
j want thc element of speculation that
has so disastrously affected the pur
! chasing power of Federal money to
have anything lo do with this money
which is to issuo upon thc basis of
real values and tangible property.
We want to do business to the nulluni
advantage, of all sections and upon
terms of equality. Wc do not want
to do business under thc dictatorship
of Now York banks. We do not
want for our section to have tho
present disproportion of circulating
medium to tho amount of wealth it
possesses. Wo ask for nothing but
an exact and equal justice, anil wo
will be content with nothing less.
TILLMAN DOWNS Cl'LI.OM.
Senator Tillman took a fall out of
Senator dillon., of Illinois, during
the early hours of today's session of
thc Senate. The Senator from Illi
nois presented a memorial from a
lot of Chicago negroes, asking Con
gress to do something to prevent
lynching and other crimes against
people of their race. Thc Illinois
Senator proceeded, bj insinuation,
io place the burden of all such
crimes upon tho Southern States,
when thc South Carolina Senator
interjected au inquiry as to the
source of tho memorial and thc sceuo
of the crimes against the negroes.
With sorrow the Kcpublicnn Sena
tor from Illinois was compelled to
make the acknowledgment, for
which the Senator from South Caro
lina was probing, that it was in Illi
nois, not in ihe South that negrooH
were shot down for thc crime of
trying to obtain work.
