THURSDAY, APRIL ,26 1888.
CtThe Reflector, publishes the fol
lowing speech of ilr. Weaver, the
"greenbacker," at the earnest solicita
tion of Gen. Geo. F. Livingston, of
this county, whose party and its prin
ciples have long since succumbed to
the inevitable. The financial heresies
qI Mr. Weaver have had little influence
in checking the marvelously successful
financial policy of the Republican
Speech of J. B. Weaver in the House
Mr. Mills I yield thirty minutes to
the gentleman from Iowa Mr. Weaver.
Mr. Weaver Mr. Chairman: In the
commencement of my remarks I wish
how to disclaim any iutention of mak
ing an attack upon any executive of
ficer who may now be or who may have
been heretofore in power. But I in
tend to tell what I be'ieve to be true,
let it hurt whom it may. The truth
ought to be told, and told without
8ir, this country is now within the
grasp of a gigantic, cold-blooded money
trust, which limits the money output,
preRcribes the conditions on which it
deigns to accept the currency at the
hands of the government, determines
the channels through which it shall
reach the people, and the terms upon
which it shall be doled out.
This trust usurps the sovereignty of
the nation, mocks at the suffering of
Its victims, and relies upon the painful
"necessities" of the situation to keep
them in subjection. Applause.
For a quarter of a century this trust
has overawed Congress, and at this
lime is se ting at defiance
laws which it does not approve. It is
& national organization, with ramifica
tions everywhere. It holds annual
pssions, has an executive council,
which meets in secret, and is clothed
with power to collect large sums of
money and to disburse the same for
purposes which are not made public.
It is the architect of our present finan
rial structure. Thev have built it to
suit the cupidity of the usurer and so
administer to the devouring appetite
of money ghouls, rather than to servo
the legitimate wants of business and
trade. They have made it a suare ami
a delusion, and a rack of torture to
those who are content to accumulate
wealth by production, and it has proved
a bed of quicksand to business energy
and honest thrift.
I regard the situation today as not
presenting a contest between the peo
ple and any executive department of
this government, but a contest between
the people and a non-politic.il monicd
oligarchy that controls all departments
and geeks to control all po itical parties.
Where is the money which this reso
lution seeks to have paid out in the
purchase of government bonds? It is
not in the Treasury. Fif ty-nine mil
lions of it are in national banks, and
they are using it without iuterest. The
Secretary of the Treasury has serious
doubt about his authority under the
law of March 3, 18S1, to purchase bonds
with the money. It is a little singular
, that some doubt did not arise in his
mind as Id his power to deposit this
mount of money in the national
Under what law did he deposit it?
Tou will find the law on page 365 of
Loans and the Currencv :
"All national banking associations
designated for that purpose by the Sec
retary of the Treasury shall be deposi
tories of public money, except receipts
from customs, under such regulations
as may bo prescribed by the sjecretar .
and they may also be employed as
financial agents of the government.'"
Xow, Mr. Chairman, when was that
law passed? It was passed in June,
1864, during the struggle for the pies
ervation of the Union, when the gov
ernment had to disbuise large sums of
money in various parts of the country
in payment of the army and hi pay
ment for supplies. That was the neces
sity under which that law was passed,
and, the necessity having ceased, the
rule ought to have ceased also.
There was no design, in the passage
of that law to make the national banks
depositories ot government funds for
their contenience and benefit. It was
the convenience of the government
that was uppermost in the minds of
Congress, and when the necessitj
ceased the deposit of money in the na
tional banks should have ceased also
But, sir, it is true that there are fitly
or more national banks in this couutiy
that have been literally staffed wiih
government money for the past quar
ter of a century; money wrung irotn
the people by unjust and oppressive
taxation has been stuffed into the
banks, and by them loaned back to the
poor wretches from whom it was ex
torted. Who on this floor will deny
tk.it? Fifty-nine millions! Where is
it? Scattered promiscuously over the
country, without regard to the conve
nience of the government, utterly in
defiance of sound policy, aud solely
with reference to the convenience and
at the behest of the bauks.
Let me give you a specimen or two.
I find in the list I hold in my hand the
Hamilton National Bank, of Fort
Wayne, Ind., which has nearly 8100,
000 of the public money. Who:e I auk
is that? That is the bank iu which an
x-Secretary of the Treasury (Mr. Mc
Culloch) is largely interested. His
salary as Secretary of the Treasury
oeased long ago, but his profits from
thf use of tnis $100,000 of government
money continues and amounts to nearly
or quite as much per annum as his sat
y Ttsed to be. He is using the peo-
ple'a money that has been wrung from i
them at the expense ot their homes, at
tht expense of thousauds of hungry

Now. Tcome to the Western .Na
tional Bmk of New York, lh.it
bank it will be remembered, was or-ainz.-d
during the second session ot
ttie Forty ninth Congress by three
prominent Treasury officials, concern
ing one of whoai (piac to his ashe) I
will snviiot-. a word: but two othei
Treasury officials, the Treasurer of the
United States, Mr. Jordan, and the
subtreasurer, at New York, Mr Cauda,
weie prominent in organizing thai
bank and are prominent stockholder
in it today. How much government
money has this bank? One million
one hundred thousand dollars. It de
posited bonds to the amount ot
$1,000,000 and received $1,1UU,000 of
government funds, which are being
used by this bank, as all these othei
ex-otlicials are using government funds
for their own profit and advantage.
F. O. Matheisseii, one of the promi
nent character in ti e infamous truM,
was conspicuous in organizing tin
bank and is a piominent stocholder in
it I examined the record with regaid
to' this bank and I .want to give what
it says. The book which dsignale
the amount that these bauks shall re
ceive shows this oidi-r concerning the
Western National, Mr. Jordan's bank:
"Fill the bank from banks outside
of New York."
Is not that good? Laughter.
I have a letter from the S cretary of
the Treasury concerning this bank
which I desire to read for the .edifica
tion and instruction of this House. It
is dated Washington, I). C. October 8
1SS7, and isdiieeted to the Treasure
of the United Suites:

Now, this was an older to the Tieas
urerof the United States, wheieupon
he issued his order to the bauks out
side of New York, to traiiMiiit then
balances diiectly to the Western Na
tional Hank not to the Secretary of
the Treasury but directly to thai,
bank, and to telegraph the amount ol
their remittances to the Secietary ol
And then at this session of Con
gress the Secretary of the Treasury
has sent in an itm showing a defic
iency in the telegraphic expenditure,
and he states in his letter that the, de
fiiciency is solely owing to the large
amounts of deposits placed in the im
tional bank-. Thai i- to say. the cos"
of this telegraphing- both to and from
the banks tnat are using this govern
ment money for nothing, is paid out ol
the Treasury of the United States; and
in order to meet this expense, an iipm
has been allowed in the urgent d fie
iency bill which passed this House
What excuse is there for this?
Mr. Payne What is the date of the
letter just read by the gentleman?
Mr. Weaver October 8, 18S7.
Then we have also the Thiid Na
tional Bank of Buffalo, N. Y. Whose
bank is that? It is a bank controlled
by gentlemen prominent in the Stand
ard Oil trut. Yes, the Standard Oil
Company has its hand in the Treasurj
also, through tins aud other banks.
Think of the burning shame and dis
grace of such a transaction 1 No won

extent the government money, and
are using it to oppress the people. I
say this is a public outrage aud villain
ous shame. Ht-re Cojgiess has ben
sitting for nearly ihree months aud
not a half dozen voices have been
raised against it, not a move has been
made to remedy the evil or to rebuke
the eriinn. On the contrary, efforts
have been made to exend the privileges
of the banks. I denounce it, and
trust I shall be pardoned b my Demo
cratic brethren for my ji ffersoniau
.ind J.ukrOulaii ecceutriciiiea ou tins
subjcel. I think we have reached a
lime when the Democratic parly can
afford to be Democratic.
Now, Mr. Cnairmaii. I have already
indicated that this money is not in the
Treasury, out in the bauks. The
banks aie simply the lenses through
which, like a radiation, this nioue
itaehed the people. It is now in cir
culation and the busim ss of the
c 'Untiy has adjusted itself to it.
Now. 1 repeat the question: Wh
was this money placed in the bahks in
the liiht place? I know the answer
whicn can bi g ven. It was done to
avoid a panic winch was then impend
ing. Let us grant lhat io be Hue. 1
asseit line and now mat if you ncall
that money as this bill is intended to
do, ou will inevitably precipitate a
panic'and nothing can prevent it.
1'ou cannot take it from the banks
again without serious euibarrnSsment.
This bill will not have the effect
which is desiied, nor will the Secre
taiy ot the ireasury uuderiake lo
cany it out. lie dare not. He maj
uudt-nake io buy a lew bonds wiih in
suipius actuall in the Treasury and
not m ihe banks, or which may here
afier accumulate. He will not tak
the responsibility of calhug the tuone
into Ihe J'leasliry iu the present
stringency in the money market. Tin
bauk, sir, are the masters of the situa
tion, and nol the fc-cielai; Uul, n
will answer, we can demand th
monej of the banks or compel tin m to
sell their bonds held for deposits. You
can do noi hing of the kind. They w ill
say to you: Our bonds are vuluable.
and we. do not want to sell. If ou
want your money we will call in oui
loans and pay, but ou, Mr. Secieiars
must take the responsib lity ol a panic,
which is likely to lollow. That i.
what they will say. Another fact, Mr.
Chaiiman: The Secivtaiy has in
creased the premium oil these bond
by this enormous sjstem of dr posits,
and this bill proposes to authoiize Inn
to buy the bonds at the premium to
winch his wretchtd policy has bmiuiei
them. This is something woi.-e thai
folly. By this policy he boomed tin
price of the bonds in the hands of tin
bondholders, and now you pi pose t
nuy these back at the met eased priet .
Well, indeed, may the Secretary ol
the Treasury hesitate, lie was author
ized, if he saw proper, to buy undei
the law of March 3, 1881, but he wa
never authorized by any law to fii
boom the bonds and then buy then
back at the increased premium.
It this piopositiou passes and tin
Secietary undertakes to call in this
uiouev, I s.iy to the business men ol
the country they had better prepare ti
.stand fioin under. You all know lhat
.is well as I do. What shall be done
then? Ah, I will lell you the rented)

It is that we shall torn pel the people ot

the proper time. I had it read as a
part of my remaiks.
Now. sir. I have the entire list in mj
hand of the national depositories
which have been created um'er this
policy of the Treasury Department,
and they number 29S, which number
has probably been increased by the ad
dition of e:ght or ten sinc ihe list was
prepaied. I append the list and ask
that it be printed in the Record.
Mr. Springer When was this policy
Mr. Weaver In October last.
Mr. Randall -Earlier than that.
Mr. Weaver It was inaugurated in
October, as I understand it that is
the present extended policy, but Un
law was passed iu 1864, and to a lim
ited extent banks have been designated
by all the Secretaries. The policv.
however, of dep siting the par value nf
4 percent bonus aim iiu on 4 per
cent b nd-t was inaugurated by the
present S cretary of the Tieaury dur
ing last summer or fall. The policy
therefore obtaining only gave the
banks from 80 to 90 per cent.
Mr. McMiliin Will the gentleman

Mr. Weaver I know; but so were

Our bonds have not been below p-ir for
