CONCERNING THE NATIONAL BANKS
.: , . .
The Comptroller's Opinion on the Sub.
Joct Scouring' tho Circulation Inter,
estlne ractt nnd Flguros
- About the llonds.
Wabhinoton, Nov. .Comptroller
Knox, In bis forthcoming annual report,
dovotua considerable space to tlio consideration
of tho" sfibject of security for National
llault circulation, BUgRcstiiiK legislation,
to avoid a too rapid diminution of National
Bank circulation. Tho following
extracts front his report give his views nnd
recommendations on tho subject: Tho
Secretary of tho Treasury has been
on account of tho largo receipts of
rovenuo.in oxecs of oxpendtturos, to call
In rapidly for payment that portion of tho
bonded dobt which is payablo at tho
pleasure of tho United State. During tho
year ending Novoinber 1, more than
of tho public debt has boon paid,
and all of tho remaining
per cent bonds, amounting to t91,590,'250,
hnvo been cnllod for paymont and ceased
to bear interest on November 1. Notwithstanding
tho fact that 'Ml new banks
were organized during tho past
year, with a capital of t28,al,350 and
$0,375,650 of bonds as a bocurity
for circulating notes, the aggregato amount
ou deposit for that purjioso lias diminished
from $302,11)0,050 to 3.W,U07,300, a reduction
of t'J.Ky.m More than 110,000,000
of throo and a half jier cents held by tho
banks on November 1, 18&J, Wive been withdrawn
or called for payment. Tho threes
have- increased less than $&!,000,000, and the
fours und f our-and-a halfs less than
Tho total amount of bonds outstanding
held by tho banks and by the icoplo which
are availablo for circulation and not
at tho pleasure of tho (Jovernmeut,
and which cannot bo redeemed except by
purchaso in tho market, is ns follows:
Four ior cent, payablo July 1, 1807, $737,-010,550;
Four-and-a-half ier cents, payable
September 1, JbOl, $250,000,000; railway
sixes, payablo 1805 to ItAW, $ml(W3,5ia.
Total, $1,032,570,002. It Is evident that
unless there is additional legislation the
bonds hold as security for circulation will
rapidly diminish. New legislation may,
how over, postpono the pnyuient of the public
debt, or causo tho prollt on circulation
to increase sulUciently to Induco tho
National Bunks to Invest in tho long four
per cents, which are not to mature for a
eriod of twenty-four years. Tho contraction
of the bunk circulation may bo
avoided by reduction, of the redundant
revenue, and there is no doubt that this is
tho truo policy. Tho rmlical cure for tho
uvll of an accumulation of a largo surplus,
says the Secretary in his last report, Is in
tho reduction of taxation, so that
no more will bo taken from tho
people than enough to carry on tho
Government with economy to moot
ull Its obligations that must bo mot frdm
year to year to pay oir with reasonable
celerity tho part of tho debt which It may
pay ut pleasuro, and to provide, through
tho sinking fund, for the payment of that
which will become payablo by and by.
Tho contraction of tho bank circulation
may also bo avoided by the conversion of
tho long bonds into three per cents, by offering
inducement to holders of those
bonds to exchange thorn for threo per cents
to mature in 1007, tho Government paying
to the holders thereof a reasonable amount
for their dllTerenco in valuo. Tho principal
objection mado to this proposition is
that tho Government would pay to tho
holders a largo premium upon tho bonds
held by them, but it is evident
that In tho courso of two or threo years,
after tho throe per cents aro paid, if there
is no reduction in tho royenue, tho surplus
will enormously Increase, unless tho long
bonds aro then purchased by tho Govern
ment at a rate to be then fixed by tho holders
thereof, which will bo a rata much
higher than that now proposed. Tho premium
to bo paid to tho holders of these long
bonds may bo considerably reduced by providing
that the circulation to bo issued
upon tho proposed bonds, when deposited
by tho National Banks as socurity therefor,
shall not bo subject to the present tax of
one per cont per annum, or by postponing
tho time for thoir payment. Such legislation
would make tho now bonds
moro vnluablo for this purpose thnn
for any other, and would be likely to
prevent tholr withdrawal until maturity,
if once deposited, and for this reason tho
bonds would bo more desirable as a basis
for circulation than any which have heretofore
been issued. Tho contraction would
also bo avoided by providing for tho removal
of the tux ou circulation, and tho in.
creoso of the amount of circulation to bo
Issued to tho banks upon tho bonds deposited
Other, propositions havo been suggested
in order to postpone or prevent the contraction
of National bank circulation,
which is now imminent, but tho Comptrol
ler considers that, so long r i there is a sufficient
amount of. United States bonds outstanding,
legislation bhould bo so shaped
as to continue them in use as
a basis) for National vi bank circulation.
"The h61der of s a Government bond,"
'Comptroller Knox says, "can readily borrow
money upon it as a pledge from u bank
to tho amount of ninety-live per cent of its
market value, 'and it is not surprising that
banks should prefer to relinquish their circulation
rather than deposit as security
bonds having a margin of moro than
of tho circulation issued. A law
authorizing increase of Issue to ninety
or per (out upou ttuo lowest
market price during tho calendar or fiscal
year previous to tho deposit, together with
tho repeal of tho circulation, would result
In Uto dopost of a suiltclont amount of thef
four and four-and-a-half jwr cents o
tho circulation at about its present

Chicago detective, arrived hero Saturday,
and yesterday ho chartered an cnglno to

on tho morning of the murder a portly Btook

been up all night, and loft after breakfast.
Since then ho had not been seen. A man
named Gallup, with whom tho suspected
man took breakfast, accompanied Porry to
Mason to Identify tho man. After tho departure
of tho engino, tho wildest
prevailed in tho city. Hundreds of
excited citizens thronged tho streots. Tho

engine stopped a milo out of town, and M10
officers, with their prisoner, camo quietly

engineer went in and told the waiting mob
that tho errand hud been fruitless.
Andrews claims to have spent tho night
of tho murder ut a Jackson, houso of ill-fame,
