history as the recipient of one vote
lor the vice-presidency. His reply
was: 'That is nearer to the presidency
than I ever thought I should get.' "

Cleveland's second administration, wan
several times more or le86 at oddR
with the New York bankers. That bin
relations with them were someUmett
strained was not either his fault or
theirs. It was the inevitable result
of the extraordinary financial condi
tions of the time, which he saw from
one point of view and they from anoth
er. Mr. Carlisle's task was trying far be
yond the ordinary duties of the head of.
the treasury department. He had
been at the head of the department
only a few months when the great cur
rency panic of 1893 occurred, and dur

Before that syndicate was organized,
however, the government borrowed on
two occasions 150,000,000 for the pur
pose of replenishing the gold reserve.
The secretary of the treasury had to
negotiate the sale of the bonds for the
gold in Wall street He had very de
cided views as to what the bankers
ought to do In connection with the,
loans, and he made those views plain.
With him it was a question of helping
out the government The bankers, a-.
business men. a! o bud their view .
na u nat they ougui to do, and the
thought those views were entitled to
consideration. Mr. Carlisle succeeded
in disposing of the first lot of bonds,
nevertheless, but the negotiations left
in their wnke a certain amount of irri
tation. Some of the bankers were dis
posed to think that the secretary had
been unduly dictatorial in his attitude
When the second sale of $50,000,000
of bonds was authorized, the effect of
the previous negotiations was dlscern
able. Many of the bankers showed a.
lack of interest It seemed likely that
they would ignore the secretary when
he came to seek their participation in
taking up the new issue.
It seemed very likely to one man In
particular, and that man was John A
Stewart, the president of the United
States Trust company. The more he
thought about it, the less he liked it
He sat up the best part of one night
thinking about it
"It would be a national calamity if
there should not be a general and
hearty response on the part of the
bankers to this new offering of bonds,"
he said to himself. "I will do what
I can, personally, to make the bond
sale a success."
The next day he got in touch either
personally or by phono with all the
bankers whom he suspected of being
offish or lukewarm.
"I don't know what you are thinking
of doing with reference to this new
bond issue," he said to them," but if
seems to me that there Is just one con
Blderntion that ought to govern oui
action in this case and that is pa
trlotism. This is a matter that in
volves the honor of our government
the maintenance of Its credit before
the world. If this bond issue 1b nor

In every Instance the financiers to
whom Mr, Stewart thus nppealed re
sponded favorably. The banks and
private bankers each took the allotted
proportion of the $50,000,000 loan, and
by the next day the gold was In th
sub-treasury, and the government hud
escaped lapsing to a silver basis, which
Mr, Carlisle had said would be Inevit
able unless gold was Instantly se-cr-ed.
