Secretary of Treasury Says
Present Is Little Better
Than No System.
-Washington. D."C., Dec. 9. Currency,
reform, extension of the scope of the
national banking law. in the event or
no immediate general changes in tne
monetary system: jivil service retire
ments, a customs service free from
"practical" politics: businesslike neth
ods in "the daily transactions or the
government and a general abolition of
red tape wherever it clogs the wheels
of the government's Business, are
among the recommendations contained
in the annual report of Franklin Mac
Veagh, secretary of the treasury, pre
sented to congress today.
The expenses of the government m
the fiscal year 1912, for which this ses
sion of congress is asked to appropriate
are estimated at 630,494,013.12. The
estimated expenditures of the Panama
canal are given as $56,920,847.69, mak
ing a total of $687,414,860.81. The esti
mates, if carried out, represent net sav
ings of about $16,000,000,000 in the ex
ecutive departments as compared witn
the appropriations for the current nt-
cal ' year.
While the secretary's report estimates
the total expenses of the government
at $687,414,860. the estimates ivn.cn
have been transmitted to congress ask
for $748,414,861, a difference of $61,000,
000 Congress is asked to appropriate
this extra $61,000,000 to make the sink
ing fund law effective. It would be,
an appropriation to permit the treasury
to begin applying one percent a sear
to the discharge of the national debt.
The law authorizing such a procedure
has been a dead letter tor soiueuu,c

Receipts for 1912, secretary Mac
Veah estimates, will be $680,000,000,
which would leavo an ordinary surplus
of aTound $50,000,000. If the treasury
should continue to pay for the Panama
canal out of the cash drawer as at pres
ent such a surplus would be turned to
a deficit of $7,414,860.81.
Panic-Breedins: Money System.
Secretarv MacVeagh expresses the
hope that the monetary question w.U
come into congress detached from sec
tional or political considerations.
"Our system can fairly be caHed a
panic breeding system." he says,
"where as every other national banking
and currency system is panic-preventing.
As long as we continue under our
present system we are liable to panics
and the devastations by panics reach
Republicans, Democrats and all pars
of the country alike. Panics are no
longer necessary and no longer respect;
able. It is for the government to say
whether we shall have panics In tne
future or not. It is a mere mattsr of
"We have no system of reserves, cur
banking spstem destroys them. It con
centrates in New Tork what are pre
tended, to bee reserves and then otces
the New Tork banks to lend and abolish
them.' Our -system instead of building
up a reserve, destroys it as fast as it
inclines to accumulate."
In connection with his criticism ol
the money system, one of the secreta
ry's most important recommendations
concerns future issues of Panama
bonds, of which $290,000,000 were au
thorized by the tariff act. The secre
tary renews the recommendations made
last year for legislation to tax the new
bonds at one and one-half percent if
used by national banks for circulation
and intimates that it might be m.ore
preferable to iste the new securities
ior investment purposes only at a rate
of three- percent.
As a check against the use of the
honds as the basis for a further infla
tion of the national bank currency, he
suggests that a circulation tax of even
two percent would have the effect of
making them unprofitable for banks.
Urs;e Foreign Banks.
There is a clear need of banking fa
cilities in foreign countries -vhere
there is American commerce, he says.
"We shall, never be a full fledged
commercial nation," he 'says, "unless
we have merchant ships of our own
and foreign banks of our own. We
should have banks at all ports that are
important to our commerce."
The treasury relations with the busi
ness communities are unbusinesslike,
r-ttrinvi nnrJ burdensome, he declares,
and he recommends legislation to per- i
mit the payment ot revenue to me gov
ernment by certified check.
The recommendation that the treasu
w ,Ho iiiithnriT-.ea to issue gold certifi
cates against gold bullion and. foreign j
gold com is renewea.
The rehabilitation' of the customs
sen-ice at Xew Tork has been marked,
he says, -by a decided elimination of
spoils influences and practical politics.
A civil service requirement is absolute
ly the requisite of a satisfactory sys
. a nnmnieto f n t -f efficiency in

Secretary MacVeagh strongly recom
mends that all nonpolitical offices be
Included in the classified service. .As
sistant appraisers of customs should
be detached from politics for the effi
ciency of the service, he says.
The secretary pays a high tribute to
the men of the life saving service and
urges some form of retirement for
The secretary takes notice of a state
ment made by a United States senator
that the business of the government
cpuld be conducted with a saving of
$300,000,000 a year. He says:
"When it is the fact that the entire
ordinary expenditures of the govern
"tnent last year were less than $660,000,
000 and when a great part of those ex
penditures is not 'reducible at all, as,
for example, the interest on the debt,
and the pensions, one can readily see

"There's a Reason5 '
Bead 'The Road to Wellville," in
thf Misfdssinni. thev could not be navi
gated on the tributary streams, and
then one of two things would happen
either the vessels in which goods were
loaded on the smaller streams would be
sent t'nrough to destination with the
goods in which case the deep draft
vessels would not get the haul or the
goods would have to be transferred to
the deep draft vessels, and transferring
goods from bjoat to boat Is as expensive
and often more expensive than trans
ferring them from car to car.
"So far as I can learn, it is the opin
ion of practically all the army engi
neers who have Investigated tne sub
ject, that a towboat with 6 to 9 feet
at ft tnic-iner barsres with a capacity of
S000 or 10,000 tons would be able to j
-handle traffic cheaper on tne .Mississ
ippi river, even if it were deepened 14
or 21 feet, than could a lake vessel With
a deep draft; and the low boat and
barges would be able to navigate many
of the shallow tributaries of the Mississippi-
"It would seem that all that reason
ably could be asked, or that ought to be
asked of the general government, so
far as our navigable rivers are con
cerned, is that it shall dredge them to
depths sufficient to accommodate tow
boats and barges.
"Although I have never seen tne
statement made, I believe that it takes
less power to move five thousand tons,
or ten thousand tons' of freight loaded
on cars, on a railroad, the grades of
which do not exceed three-fourths of
one percent, than to move the same ton
nage on a canal or canalized river.
Train resistance on a smooth and level
track is less than' the resistance of mov
ing a boat through water.
