IIo had ut all timts been entiroly freo in

and in favor jf froo banking Hccompanicd
with such legislation as would carry out
tho pledgee of Cor.groM and tho republi

a littlo differently from the views of this
committee. Thuy show very well what
tbey want, and may imagine, r.s h m If; lit,
wore ho a citizen of Now York, that tho
whole country want what they do.
Tho president continued : The chair

acted as tho Iloston comiiuttco wantod
him to do, ho would liavo l:'pt uch sur
plus in tho treaury until thoro not a
ijrcenbick in circulation. Theso bonds
wcro purchased at his own direction. An
other argument in the Iloston memorial is
that tlio issuo was ot uouuliul lejamy
and was to bo deplored, nnd had boon
sustained by n baro majority in tho Su
premo Court as a war mea'tiro. In con

views on this question woro alroady

to breaking away from the redemption ot
