T11E FINANCIAL SITUATION,
To tho Kdltorof Tnis Uulletin :
Tho question of tho curroncy at all
times Important is pro-omlnently tho
onoa which at this moment engapos
tho public attontlon. Ono hundred days
ago tho Industrial activity of tho country
vrai immonso; all our energies woro om
ployed in production and oxchango; tbo
signs of a busy and prolltablo full and
winter trado were novcr moro abundant
and decided whn suddenly, without
warning, as If by the action ot sorno florco
devastating storm, our industries wero
laid prostrate, our cnorglcs were para
lyred, and wo found ourselves in the
tnldtt of wido-spread business disaster and
destruction. It has soldom happoned
that ft financial revolution so rapid and
extensive has takon place, in the history of
Naturally, tho publio mind casts about
for a remedy. Naturally, too, there is
rjroat diversity of opinion as to what
remedy will sately and certainly effect a
euro, and most probably prevent a re
currence of liko disinters in tho fuluro.
A largo and influential class In tho com
munity declare the infallible speciflo to be
an immodlato resumption of spocie pay
xmonts ; whilo another c'-j"i perhaps
neither so largo nor so influential, declares
in favor of an addition to tho legal tondcr
paper. Intormodiato bolwa thnsa aro a
variety of propositions for "froo
banking" and "convortiblo bond"
ayitemi wblcb, howover, bril
liantly they may oporato in tho tho
orios of tbolr projectors, aro too uncertain
In respoct of actual practice to dosorvo
nny very serious considoration in a timo
liko the prison!. There Is still another
body of cltlzans, both large and influen
tial, which is content with tho existing
tystom so modified, howovor, aa to meot
the changes suggested by tho experience
of aow more than n half-score of years.
It is no doubt dosirnblo that wo shall re
turn to specie payments ; but tho import
ance of resumption has boon greatly
overestimated by thoso who , favor It.
However certain and permanent it may bo,
n cash paying system is no effectual safe
guard against calamities liko that which
assailod us in Soptombcr. On tbo con
trary, ropoatod experioncos prove that In
flexible adhorenco to it intonsiflos
panic poriods and makes thorn moro lasting
and destructive "When in Kngland
panics liavo been ralloved by tho tlmoly
interference of government, It has been
not by clinging to but by a doparturo
from tho cash syslom. And It may be
laid down as a fixed truth, thai under tho
modern credit tytlcm, sorno method for a
judicious extonsion of the curroncy in
noriods of financial excitement and dan
ger, is nocossary to prevont n poriodlea'
recutronco of tho present condition of do
prcssion and ruin.
But resumption is at this time aliho in
expedient and impracticable. Inexpedient'
becauso it would bo unjust and oppressive
to a vast majority of tho pooplo; and im
practicable, bocauioof tho political and in
dustrial circumstances of tho country.
"Wo may dismiss nil schomos of gradual
rosuniptlon as unsound; for coin and pa
per will noror como to a par in tho natural
course of business and without tho inter
vention of nrtiflclal stimulants ; and that
the premium on coin is but flvo or throe
or even but one per cont. is no proof to tho
contrary. Tho rato per cent, of tho pre
mium is in ft word no ovon romoto in
dex either of tho power of tho country to
resume, or of tho cbango that would bo
wrought in pricos If resumption were per"
Tho government pays Interest upon
a largo portion of tbo public dobt in
coin, and in ordor to procuro u supply ad
equate to this purposo it requires payment
In coin of tho duttos leviod upon Imported
goods. Tho effoct of this roquiromont Is
to support a stoady domand for gold, and
to compel tho constant presonco In the
country of an aggregato fund of at least
ono hundred millions of dollars. This
oornpulsory presonco of so largo a sum
serves as a continuous stimulant to its
prlco. If tho government's requiromont
vwo removed, this ono hundrnd millions
would bo rapidly oxportodj and in th ab
sence of demand tho premium would sink
to a merely nominal ratoj perhaps to but
two or tbuo per ctnt. "We should thus
seo tho apparent anomaly of a far less
stock of coin In tbo country and at tho
same'.tlmo a materially lower rato of pro
mlum. Hut will any parson Insist that,
beoauso In such circumstances k theio,
coin and paper approximate to within two
oe threopercent.of each other In nominal
valuo, tbo govornmont will be In a posl
. tlon to redeem In coln,paper to tho amount
of four hundrod or seven hundred andnrty
millions of dollars?. '
Tho truth Is this: The government and
tbo banks luspondod cash payments In !)
cembor 1881 because tho equilibrium be
tween -coin and papor had beon destroyed
Under the prossuro of tho war the cash of
tbo country had been exportod.andnlotber
government nor tbo banks bad it In quan
tity aufllciont to rod com tbolr issues, and
accordingly as tho host and In point of
fact, as the only thing tlioy could do
tbey t uspendod. They have continued in
a condition of lu.'penilon for the reason
which prom P tod uiponilon in the first
nlace ! tboy Imvo not boon ablo to uo-
cumulato coin sufficient for tbo redomj
tlon of tbolr circulating notes. And limy
will not bo ablo to retumo until tho 'equi
librium botwooo tho coin supply and thn pit
por circulation U restored. Klthor tho coin
uiuat b ncroasod or tho paper circulation
diminished. This Is tho simplo and
oxael philosophy both of t spon
sion and resumption.
Now, if tho resumption of cash pay
ments Is tho remedy for tbo oxlsting finan
cial doprcstlon, It is indisponsablo to ro-
storo tho necessary proportions hotweon
tho sum of coin uvnllabto for tho rodomp-
Hon of tho notes in circulation and tho
Cgregato sum of tbeso notes.
Tho total circulation of tho country on
tho first of October last Including legal
tondors, fractional curroncy and national
bank notes was seven hundred and thirty-eight
millions ($"39,C0llr.M), and tho
supply of coin In tho country was consid
erably orrr-esl'.mritcd when it was stated
by an ablo friend of resumption ("Knick
erbocker" in 'Tho Now York Times ') at
ono hundred and thlrty-flro millions of
dollars. Of this tho national troasury
hold eighty millions ; about twenty mil
lions worn hold by tho national banks jtnd
tho remainder by tho people. Hut of the
eighty millions in tho treas
ury, not ono slnglo dollar
was avnilablo for tho redemption of
greenbacks, tbo roason bolng that It
was hold for tho payment ol interest on
tho publio dobt, and could not honestly bo
diverted to any othor purposo. Tho gov
ernment, therefore, was utterly without
means on tho first of October to rcdoom
any portion of its circulation,
which amounted In tbo aggre
gate to soinowlut moro than four hundrod
and two millions (402,20?,13l).
Ihu roraalnder of tho aggregato circu
lation of 738 millions was in nationa
bank notes. If it ba admlttod ovon
which Is fiot hero admitted that thirty-
flvo millions in cash were held by others
than tho government and tho banlts,lt will
cortainly bo conceded that no portion of it
can bo usod to rodoom tho paper circula
tion until, by somo process, it is brought
into tho ownorship of thosu whoso busi
ness It is to redocm. No resutnptionirt
has poiritod out how this Is to bo dene.

In tho first of those three articles, to refer

wo laid praticular strot a on tho right of vis
