It Enliven- a Met tint; of the Bank
ing ami Currency Committee.
Free coinage of silver cropped out at
the meeting of the Committee on Banking
and Cuneucy yesterday iu a manner whollj
unexpected by Secretary Gage, who had
for two Injurs been explaining the pro
vision5 or this bill for (lie contraction ot
the currency. It happened In this way.
Mr. Fowler. Republican of New Jersey, la
terrupled the Secretary to ask what he
deuomiLCted a hypothetical question. He
"It thr next Congress should be a free
silver Congress - "
"That is not a hypothetical question."
interjected Mr. HHl, of Connecticut.
"No," quioklj chimrd In Mr. Cox, of
Tennessee, "Uiat simply it? a statement
of f aGt " This sally provoked loud laugh
ter, in which Secretary Gage was forced
Continuing. Mr. Fowler asked if a free
silver Cougresfc could not overcome the eo
calb'd good features of Secretary Gage's
"With th- aid of the PresIOeniand the
arrangement prdposed we can get througn
all right." replied the Secretary.
During Secretary Gage's remurks before
the committee, Solicitor of the Treasury
O'Connell sat beside him as a coach, and
frequently made pertinent suggestions.
Mr. Walkr, of M.uachu8ett&, was absent
and Mr Brosim presided.
Th' thirteen sectioas of the financial bill
were taken up seriatim, and in their con
sideratlon. among other things, Mr. Gage
said of the first section, which permits na
tional banks to take out additional circu
huing nots to the amount of 25 percent,
ba--ed upon their assets, in cas. ot any de
fault In the redemption of these notes by the
banks, tht bill provides that the Treasury
shall pay thrm from a fund derived troman
annual tav of 2 percent paid by the tiauks
on the ciiculation. So far iu the history
of the system, Mr. Gage said, 330 ba,iks
Had tney been cloed out by the Goier-i-ment,
as contemplated in his bill, it is es
timateil that the Government would hae
been obliged to mai-'e grod a ceflcit of
194,000; but against this, had the bans
taken out the circulation provided for 11
the bill for the period of their acnc
life eight years -they would ba.e paidinio
the Treasury ?260.000. The theoretically
possible 1 mit of circulation of national
bank notes under the bill. Secretary Gage
said, would be nearly Si, 500,000. 000
The actuil piobable circulation would Le
SooO.OOO.OOO, an increuse ot S3.10.000.
000 over the present stock.
In reply to a question by Mr. VeAvJands,
ot Nevada, regarding debt pacing qualities
ot several classes of money, Mr. Oage
said that in his opinion the tendency to
make long term contracts payable in gold
was due to distrust on the part ot the
people of the ability of the Government
to maintain the parity ot all money. It
would not be desirable for the Gowranr nt
to prohibit the enforcement of these gold
contracts, it "was not desirable for the
Government to interfere any fuilher than
is absolutely necessary between itizens
in making contracts.
Secretary Gage -alii to Mr. Stnllings, of
Alabama, that his bill did not require the
redemption ot national bank notes in
gold, becr.use no government should recog
nize any money as ot a higher or more
desirable value than its own obligations.
Concerning the proposed increase of
redemption fund from 5 to 10 per cent
the Secretary said it was his opinion
that the change should be made; the banks
could better afford to pay 10 per cent
under tho new conditions than 5 per cent
under the existing law. It was his im
pression that a suggestion of Mr. Hill,
ot Connecticut, was a good one, that the
redemption fund should not be counted
against the deposit reserve ot banks.
Profit od circulation, he believed, would
be increased under his bill.
Be added that the Treasury Department
was spending $70,000 a year trying to in
duce the people to take silver dollars, but
they will not have them, beyond a certain
sum, about $50,000,000. He feared that
in the near future the Government vub to
be exposed to the menace of illicit silver
dollars to a dangerous degree. Continuing;,
he said relative to section 9 that all
bank notes under $10 "nould be destroyed
and larger notes issued to replace them
for the Government wanted to monopolize
these notes. As to the tax on banks, pro
vided for ii section 1 2, Secretary Gakp
said he believed national banks should be
taxed for privileges they enjoy v (
The Secretary concluded his remarks
by saying iu regard to small banks in
agricultural districts that have a capital
of $25,000, they f oiild easily accept prom
issory notes for six months and meet sight
demands. After the Secretary had con
cluded hiR remarks the committee thanked,
him, and adjourned until January 12.
