CARLISE TO CONG3RESS
The Secretary's Report on the
Finances of the Country.
IORTY MILLION DOLLARS DFICIT
& Large Part of the Report Devoted to
the Condition of the Treasury-An Ex
haustive Argument In Favor of the Re
tirement of the Greenbacks - Gold
Would Then Le Returned.
WAsnixGTON, Dec. 17. - Secretary
Carlisle's annual report on the- state of
finances has been sent to congress. It
shows that the revenues of the govern
ment from all sources during the last
fiscal year amounted to $390,373,203.
The expenditures during the same pe
riod aggregated $483,178,426, leaving a
deficit for the year of $42,805,223. As
compared with the fiscal year 1894 the
receipts for 1895 increased $17,570,705,
although there was a decrease of $11,
829,981 in the ordinary expenditures,
which is aecnunted for by a reduction
of $11,134,05v on sugar bounties. The
revenues for the current fiscal year are
estimated, under the basis of existing
laws, at $481,907,407 and the expendi
tures at $448,907,407, which will leave a
deficit of $17,000,000. For the coming
fiscal year, ending June 30, 1897, the
secretary estimates the receipts at $464,
798,120 and the .expenditures at $457,
- 884,93, or an-estimated surplus of $6,
908,926. The seretary states briefly the
facts concerning the issues of bonds
during the year, the particulars of
which have already been reported to
congress. The report shows that the
Behring sea patrol Beet during the last
season boarded and examined 94 vessels.
54 of which were engaged in sealing.
The number of skins actually counted
ras 81,216. Many of the vessels in the
revenue cutter service, the secretary
says, are very old and nearly unsea
worthy, and he recommends that four
new ones be provided to take the place
of the McLane the Crawford, the Sea
ward and one lor the port of New York.
The secretary says that the govern
ment of Great Britain has refused to
renew the saling regulations agreed
upon for the season of 1894. The total
catch of seals at sea in the award area
..during the last season was 56,291, as
compared with 61,88 for the season of
1894. The catch on the seal islands
was 15,000. A careful count of all tk.
seals on the islands last year makes the
number a little over 200,000, an increase
of over one-half since 1891.
The secretary devotes a large share of
bisreport to the condition of the treas
ry and the currency, in the course of
which he makes an exhaustive argu
ment in favor of the retirement of the
"The cash balance in the treasury on
the first day of December, 1895," he
says, "was $177,406,88, being $98,072,
420 in excess of the actual gold reserve
n that day, and- $77,406,886 in excess
of any sum that it would be necessary
to use for replenishing that fund in
case the secretary should at any time
be able to exchange currency for gold.
There is, therefore, no reason to doubt
the ability of the government to dis
charge all its current obligations during
the present fiscal year and have a large
cash balance at its close, without im
posing additional taxation in any form
upon the people; but I adhere to the
opinion heretofore expressed, that the
secretary of the treasury ought always
to have authority to issue and sell, or
use in the payment of expenses, short
time bonds bearing a low rate of inter
est, to supply casual .deficiencies in the
"Wth a complete return to the nor
nar-business conditions of the country,
and a proper legislative and executive
superrision over expenditures, the rev
enue laws nowin force will, in my opin
ion, yield ample means for the support
of the public service upon the basis now
established; and upon the assumption,
which seems to be justified, that the
progress now being made toward the
restoration of our usual state of pros
perity willcontinue, without serious in
terruption, it is estimated that there
will be a surplus of nearly $7,000,000
during the fiscal year 1887. During the
fiscal years 1894 and 1895, the ordinary
expenditures of the government have
been decreased $27,825,258.20 as compar
ed with the fiscal year 1895, and it is be
lieved that, with the ~co-operation of
congress, further reductions canbe made
in the future without impairing the ef
ficiency of the public service."
- Continuing, he said:
"The large withdrawals of gold in
December, 1894, and in January and
the early part of February, 1895, were
due almost entirely to a feeling of ap
enusion in the public mind, which
in intensity from day to day
until it nearly reached the proportions
of a panic, and it was evident to all
who were familiar with thc situation
that, unles effectual steps were prompt
Staken to check the growing distrust.
e government would be compelled
withmn a few days to suspend gold pay
ments and drop to a depreciated silver
and paper standard. More than $43,
000,000 of the amount withdrawn dur
ig the brief period last mentioned was
not demanded for export, but was taken
out by people who had become alarmed
on account of the critical condition of
the treasury in its relations to the cur
rency of the country. The purchase of
8,500,000 ounces of gold followed, it be
ing in the contract that no less than
one-half of the gold was to be procured
abroad, but after a large part of the
gd had been furnished from abroad,
the secretary, in order to prevent dis
turbance in the rates of foreign ex
"a~.-~ nge at a critical period and avoid
conditi-ons which would force gold ex
ports and consequent withdrawals from
the treasury, acquiesed in a departure
from the literal terms of the contract,
that one-half of the coin should be pro
cured from abroad, and accepted depos
its of gold then held in tis country
to complete the delivery. Ordinary
prudence demanded that the success of
the plan to protect the treasury against
withdrawals should not be endangered
.by insisting upon a strict compliance
with all the details of the contract, and
especially as the government could sus
tamn no loss, and the whole amounlt of
gold stipulated for was secured.
"The amount of bonds issued under
this contraca was $62,315,400, and the
amount of gold received was $65,116,
The beneficial effects of this transa
.tion, the secretary says, were felt im
-mediately, not only in this country, but
-in every other having commercial rela
-.tions with us. "Confidence in our se
-curities," he continus, "was at once re
:stored, and these encouraging indica
~tions of increasing prosperity still con
tinue and it is reasonably certain that,
-if our progress is to be checked by a
a-epetition of large demands upon our
gesouroes, or by a failure to meet the
just expectations of the people in respect
to the reformation of our fiscal system,
we are entering upon an era of material
rowt h and development, not surpassed
iour history. The safety of the exist
ing situation is, however, constantly
menaced, and our further progress to
ward a complete restoration of con
Mdence and prosperity is seriously im
pded by the defects in our currency
aws and the doubts and uncertainty
still prevailing in the public mind, es
e- pecially abroad, concerning the future
monetary policy of the government.
Until these defects in our laws are rem
aldied and these doubts are removed,
there can be no satisfactory assurance
of imumunity from periodical disturban
ces growing out of the obligations which
4he-government has been compelled to
..assume in relaticen to the currency. Our
past experience with the United States
izotes and the treasury notes has clearly
abawn that the policy of attemDting to
retain these obligations of the govern
u t nermanently as a part of our cir
culating medium, and to redeem them
in coin on presentation and reissue them
after redeinption, must be abandoned,
or that such means must be at once pr
vided as will have a tendency to facili
tate the efforts of the secretary to accu
mulate and maintain a coin reserve,
sufficient in amount to keep the public
constantly assured of the stability of our
entire volume of currency and of our
ability at all times to preserve equality
in the exchangeable value of its various
parts. The latter alternative, which,
in my opinion, if adopted, would not af
ford the relieC demanded by the existing
situation, no essarily involves such large
increases of the interest bearing public
debt from time to time, and would im
pose permanently upon the government
such onerous and inappropriate duties
in relation to the paper currency of the
country, that it ought not to be favora
bly entertained, except as a last resort
in the struggle for the maintenance of
the public faith and the preservation of
the inviolability of private contracts.
"The issue of bonds," he says, "to
procure coin for the reserve, which is
the only effectual method now avail
able under the law, will, unless condi
tions which have already been developed
b the present policy are radically
changed, ultimately result in the crea
tion of a public debt much larger than
would be required to retire and cancel
all the notes, and the annual interest
charge would be much greater than it
would be necessary to incur on a new
class of bonds adapted to the present
circumstances of the government and
the well known preferences of investors.
If, however, an attempt is to be made
to keep the United States notes and
treasury notes permanently in circula
tion by reissues after redemption, and
the government is to be permanently
charged with the duty of sustaining the
value of all our currency, paper and
coin alike, the conclusion cannot be
avoided that the policy of issuing bonds
for the accomplishment of these pur
poses must also become permanent, and
such additional powers must be con
ferred upon the secretary as will enable
him to execute the laws relating to
these subjects with the least possible
disturbances of the business affairs of
the people and the least possible charge
upon the treasury. I am thoroughly
convinced that this policy ought not to
be continued, but that the United
States notes and treasury notes should
be retired from circulation at the ear
liest practicable day, and that the gov
ernment should be wholly relieved from
the responsibility of providing a credit
currency for the people.
"It would be difficult, if not impossi
ble, to devise a more inconvenient, ex
pensive or dangerous system than the
one now in operation under the laws
providing for the issue, redemption and
reissue of legal tender notes by the gov
'"There has never been a time since
the close of the wa-," the secretary
said, "when the gradual retirement and
cancellation of the United States notes
would not have been beneficial to the
country, nor has there ever been a time
when the issue of additional notes of
the same character would not have
been injurious to the country.
"If our legal tender notes were re
tired, there is abundant reason to be
lieve that a very large amount of gold
which has been excluded from the coun
try by the excessive use of silver and
paper in our circulation, would prompt
ly return to take its place in our cur
rency and constitute a permanent part
of our medium of exchange.
"The United States notes and the
treasury notes issued in paymint for
silver bullion, together amounting at
the beginning to $-02,612,013, have been
used and are still being used to with
draw gold from the government when
ever our own people or the governments
of people of other countries~ see proper
to demand it for any purpose, and, un
der the laws now existing, the secretary
of the treasury has no means of comply
ing with these demands except by the
issue and sale of interest bearmg bonds
under the act of Jan. 14, 1875, or by the
purchase of gold coin with the bonds or
notes of the United States under section
,700 of the revised statutes. Against
these demands the treasury has no avail
able means of defense except at the sac
rifice of the public credit and the imme
diate depreciation of the entire volume
of our currency. Long adherence to a
false system has, to a great extent, un
dermined our national credit, so far as
it is related to the maintenance of a
sound currency,' and it must be recon
structed, not merely propped up by frail
and temporary supports. No surplus
revenue, however large, could extricate
us from our present difficulties, or give
assurance of safety in the future, un
less it should be required to be paid in
gold under a system which would ex
empt the government from the obliga
tion to furnish the gld when demanded
to be used in making the payments;
and it is scarcely necessary to suggest
that such a sstem is impossible as long
as the Unite States notes and treasury
notes are kept in circulation, and are
redeemable in gold by the government
itself on presentation.
"The opinion seems to prevail to
some extent that the mere possession of
a surplus in the treasury would prevent
withdrawals of the gold and thus render
the issue of bonds for the protection of
the reserve unnecessary, but this view
of the subject is founded, in my judg
ment, upon an entire misconce~tion of
the causes that have produced the with-.
drawals. Unless I am wvholly mistaken,.
they have very little, if any, relation to
the amount of money held by the gov
ernment, and to the amount of money
the government has the ability to. raise
by taxation or otherwise, but they re
late primarily and almost exclusively to
the character of money that it might be
able to supply and keep in circulation.
In other words, it was apprehension as
to the kind of money to be used, and
not as to the amount of the money on
hand that brought our securities from
abroad for sale, caused foreign investors
to withdraw their capital, and foreign
creditors to collect their debts; and com
pelled our -owri people to suspend or con
tract their business operations and thus
diminish the incomes of employers and
greatly reduce, or entirely stop, the
"Lare withdrawals have been made
during the last three years, simply be
cause gold was wanted, and the desire
to secure gold was due to a growing
distrust of the other kinds of currency
in circulation,and not at all to any appre
hension that the government would not
be able to discharge all its obligations
in some kind of pay or gold. When
the receipts for customs consisted very
largely of gold, as was the case prior to
July 1, 1892, before the results of our
defective currency system had been ful
ly developed, a surplus revenue enabled
the treasury to pay out gold without
disturbance of the reserves; and, be
sides, there was at that time no great
demand for gold by the presentation of
notes for redemption, and there would,
therefore, have been no difficulty in
maintaining the reserve even if there
had been no surplus in the treasury,
but the conditions have entirely changed
and entirely different policy is demand
ed to meet the situation now existing.
With or without surplus revenue, the
government can now procure gold only
by negotiating loans or by making pur
chases under the statutes, and this state
of affairs, which is the natural result
of causes still operative, is almost cer
aa to continue until the causes them
selves aro' removed.
"There is but one safe and effectual
way," the secretary says, "to protect
our treasury against these demands,
and that is to retire and cancel the notes
which constitute the only means through
which the withdrawals can be made.
"This can be most successfully ac
complished by authorizing the secretary
of the treasury to issue from time to
time bonds payable in notes, bearing in
tere-t at a rate not exceeding 3 per cent
per annum and having a long time to
run, and to exchange the bonds for
United n++ nntm slnd trener notas
upon such terms as may be most ad
vantageous to the government, or t
sell them abroad for gold whenever, i:
his j ad puent, it is advisable to do sc
and use the gold thus obtained in re
deeming the outstanding notes. Unde
tbe cperation of such a plan, if judi
ciously.executed, there could be no im
proper contraction of the circulation be
cause, if it should at any time be foun<
that other forms of currency were no
being supplied to the extent required
exchanges of bonds for notes would b
suspended and gold would be procure
by selling the securities abroad. In or
der to further facilitate the substitutioi
of other currency for the retirement o
legal tender notes, the national bank
should be authorized to issue note
equal in amount to the face value o
bonds deposited to secure them, and th
tax on their circulation should be re
duced to one-fourth of one per centun
"As a part of the plan for the retire
ment and cancellation of the legal ten
der notes, the treasury should be relieve4
from responsibility for the redemptio
of national bank notes, except worn
mutilated and defaced notes, and thi
notes of failed banks, and each associa
tion should be required to redeem it
circulation at its own office and at agen
cies to be designated by the comptrolle
of the currency, as was the case prior ti
the passage of the act of June 20, 1874
or, if this is not considered expedient
and the present system of current re
demption by the treasury is continued
the secretary should have the power
after a future date, to be fixed in thi
law, to require the banks to keep thei
5 per cent redemption fund in gold coi
and to deposit gold coin for the with
drawal of bonds whenever circulation i
to be permanently surrendered or re
The secretary also favors the passag
of a law-allowing national banks to es
tablish branches in small towns with i
view to bringing them closer to the peo
ple in parts of the country remote from
large towns and cities, and by whic:
their usefulness would be greatly en
The secretary, in concluding his re
port, says that it is not probable tha
any plan for the permanent retiremen1
of United States and treasury note
will be adopted that will not requir
considerable time for its complete exe
cution, and he therefore urges upoi
congress the propriety of prohibitin
any future issues of such notes or o:
national bank notes of less denomina
tion than $10, thus making room in thi
circulation for silver certificates of smal
denominations. This, he says, woul(
increase their use among the people an(
prevent their frequent return to an(
accumulation in the treasury.
