Should be Issued prohibiting the Im?
portation from America of ?ve plants
and shrubs and packages containing
the same. The decree will also in a cer?

They are to be examined by experts on
their arrival at German ports; and

Onr Legal TeuUor Mole* Not in Ar?
cor?l fFlth True Economic Law*.
Baltimore, Md., Feb. 3.?Two Cabi?
net oilicens were among the speakers
at the annual banquet of the Mer
chants' and Manufacturers' Associa?
tion here to-night.
Secretary Gage, of the Treasury,
was the chief speaker, but Poetmaster
General Gary was also on the list, as
were Congressman Nelson Dlngley,
Congressman Allen, of Mississippi,
and United States Senator Wellington.
Secretary Cage said, in part:
"It is the just complaint against
Government issues of paper monuy
that, though obedient to the legislative
will, it Is nevertheless not in harmony
with higher economic law which blesses
the obedient and punishes oil violation,
whether the violation be wilful or
through Ignorance; A true credit in?
strument, truthfully evidencing that a
thing of value has passed?yet still
exists a fact, even If transformed In
shape and substance?such an instru?
ment Is clothed with .the quality of
legitimacy. If the fact be otherwise,
If the value passed has been con?
sumed, destroyed or lost, the credit
instrument itself becomes u commer?
cial interloper, a misleading token, nor
can kings, emperors or senates change
"I can only point out the fact that
our own legal tender notes. In a great
crisis, are yet out of accord with the
true economiic laws. 'Pile value for
which they were originally issued was
immediately consumed or destroyed.
As now reissued they are evidences of
a value already consumed by the is?
suer, or of Service? already past. These
notes operating In the commercial field,
thus differentiated from the true credit
instrument which commerce can
create, and if left at reasonable lib?
erty will Itself create, must somewhere
work injury, even we cannot distinc?
tively point it out.
"In my opinion It is here that busi?
ness receives injury, general and wide
reaching, through its forced relations
to Government paper money. I wish
it were not so. I would bo glad In
this regard to be in error. Neither is
it pleasant nor popular to bear this
witness if It be true, but I know of
no higher duty upon the man who lives
his country, who desires it to march
In the vanguard of progress and
prosperity 'among Hie nations of the
earth, than to deal faithfully accord?
ing to the light of his honest convic?
tions with those great questions which
affect for good or ill his country'*
