Tub I'uhkmtaxu Hakknt. Tho effica

Hitlers as it specific for recruiting tho en
feebled body and choerlng tho deipondiug
mind, has pancd Into a proverb. In tho
United States, whore this marvelous tonic
has lorno down all opposition, nnd
eclipsed nil rivalry, tho demand for it
has annually increased in a heavier and
heavier ratio for years, until, at last, tho
regular sales of this preparation exceed

.There hu been codsidcrablo demand for
city scrip within tho past cok, and tho
prlco has steadily Increased from C5 conts
to 80Q90. This result has boon produced
fcy tho'bellcf, which has becomo general in
tlio city, that tho Council will soon adopt
measures to fund thoscrlp, and stnrt off In
to tho now fiscal yonr on n cash basis.
If, then, tho simplo suggestion of a de
termination to fund tho scrip has tho good
effect of enhancing its value, should not
tho suggestion bo made fact nt tho oarliost
In reply to this question tho assertion is
mado that tho scrip has passed Into a fow
hands, and that, tbcrcfuro, an ordinanco to
fund would bo an ordinanco enacted in
tho Interest of tiese men. This ossortion
Is truo.as far as it goes, but it is only part
of the truth. We are awaraof tho fact
that tho outstanding scrip Is in a few
hands, and we know it is truo that any
scheeso .which would enhance the valuo of
scrip weald bo in their interest, but it
would akcbs In tke interest of tho city.
If an ordinance could bo enacted that
would bring thoscrlp of Doo or Roe to
par, that ssmo ordinanco would bring the
scrip of every street laborer to par, and it
would make a scrip dollar buy as many
nails and as much lumber as a greenback
Rut tho fact that tho scrip is in a fow
hands should Induco tho council to losono
time In adopting somo financial scheme
that will remove the pest of depre
ciated city orders. Tho few men
who hold the scrip can
control tho market. They will depre
ciate tho valuo of It when there Is no de
mand, and buy all that offers, but, as soon
as tax paying timo draws near, they can
ralso tho price : and thus these speculators
will keep tho scrip fluctuating in value all
tho yoar low when they want to buy,
high when thoy want to sell, llut adopt
somo plnn by which all tho scrip hereafter
Issued will have a pur value, or a valuo
approximating nearly to par, and tboro
will bo no longer cither bulls or besrs in
our municipal Wall street.
How can this bo dono? how can tho
tho city, without caih, do business cnjja
cash basis ?
To properly reply to theso questions
would require more timo than wo havo
riow at our command. Wo can only
'briefly suggest wbal in ear opinion Is tho
best plan. Scrip has been selling below
par because there isr no money in tho city
treasury, and thero will bo no money paid
into the treasury while thero is deprecia
ted scrip that can be bought and paid in
stead. It therefore follows that the city
will never get back to a cash basis if it
should continue to Issue moro scrip than
it collects for taxes and licenses. Economy
is tho first great essential to sound a res
toration of our flnancisl benltb. Thocity
must collect moro than It spends.
Let us tako fur granted, then, that tho
Council will keep the out-go within tho in
come, and seo if there is no way to forco
scrip up and get to a cash basis without cash.
Let tho Council direct that all scrip issued
hereafter shall boar ten per cent, interest
after It has boon presented to tho Treas
urer and payment has been rofused be
cauto of no money in tho treasury; and
that this scrip with tho accumulated Intorcst
shall borocolvod for taxes and llconses. Thi
arrangomcnt trill malso tho newscrlp moro
valuablo than tho old, and thus create a
demand for tho old, which demnnd will
enhanco Its value. In this way tho valuo
of scrip, in our opinion, will be brought
closely up to par and thero bo held. Any
laborer, for his ten per cent. Interest bear
ing scrip, can readily obtain at least 95
conts on the dollar. Every tax-payer will
bo willing to pay this, since It will In effect
insko his taxes about 15 per cont. less on
tho dollar by giving him 5 per cent, on
the sliavo and 10 per cent oi the intereit
on each dollar he pays as taxes or llconses.
