The scheme of a safe, adequate and
elastic currency system for this coun
try is beginning to take shape. The
first great movement in that direc
tion was the presentation, at an
earlier meeting of the American
Bankers' association, of what has
been known as the "Baltimore plan."
This at once drew a sharp line of
division between the systems of the
past and the future. Up to that
time, there had been a stubborn
difference of opinion between the na
tional banks on the one side, which
contended that their system of bank
Issues alone, based on some form of
bonds as security, was the ideal one,
and the contention of those who held,
on the other hand, that the money of
the people should consist either of
legal tenders issued by the govern
ment, or notes issued without proper
security or regulation by banks
chartered under the laws of the sev
eral states. Between these two ex
treme views, the cause of a sound and
rational paper currency- made little
progress. The Baltimore plan start
ed discussion along a new line. It
agreed that the government should
get out of business as a bank of
Issue. It agreed that evidences of
debt are not a proper basis for a
nation's currency. It agreed that
banks in general should issue notes,
secured by the provision of a com
mon guarantee fund. It marked an
era in the progress of currency re-
The next step was taken by the
present administration, which form-
ulated and recommended to congress
a practical plan for note issues. It
v.-as a ratification by the Demo-
cratic party of the principle that gov
ernment legal tender notes are not
safe or sound money. Its greatest
defect was a clause which seemed
to permit state banks to issue notes
without proper supervision. We have
now, at the present meeting of the
bankers' association", another ad-
vance, which consists in the recom
mendation of the principle that a
tax should be imposed by the gov
ernment upon note issues, to serve
as a regulator of their volume. To
those who have despaired of an ac-
ceptance by our people of right ideas
on the subject of money, we -com-
mend this rapid advance as proof
positive of the wholesome and ef
fective education that has been go-
ing forward. It is now suggested
by the bankers' association that a
committee should be appointed to
confer with the government, and to
take up all the different proposi
tions that have been before the
country, analyze them, compare their
advantages, and select from each
such features as might properly be
Included in a comprehensive scheme
of currency reform. If this action
•should be taken, and if both houses
of congress, at their meeting in De-
cember, should appoint committees
to act with the representatives of
the bankers, there is no insuperable
obstacle in sight to a common agree-
The financial discussion of the last
few years has been immensely prof-
itable. It has cleared away a whole
forest of mistakes and fallacies, and
taught the people of the United
States more on the subject of finance
than they ever knew before. It has
brought to the front the three or
four main principles which we have
enumerated, that must govern in
framing a currency system for the
future. Committees of congress, as-
sisted by the opinions and advice of
this committee appointed by. the
bankers, ought to be able to out
line a plan which might be adopted '
before the end of the session, and v
thus remove the currency question
from the region of political contro
versy. We hope sincerely that this
may be done, and that the country
may find Itself close to a sound and
practically complete solution of the
financial questions that have been
In the past so puzzling to the people

The press dispatches indicate that
John Sherman's forthcoming me
moirs constitute in more senses than
one a remarkable book. Having
concluded his political career, with
nothing either to fear or to hope for
the future, he discusses the events
of forty years, in which he played
so prominent a part, and. the public
men with whom he acted, in a spirit
of frankness that is likely to" be far i j
from pleasing to his party associates. ■
Scarcely any of these, apparently,
escape the lash. Mr. Sherman does i
not accuse them directly, but leaves
no doubt of his meaning by the use !
of skillful innuendoes. He seems to .
have come out of his long political
service with a good opinion of very
few among those with whom his lot
was cast, unless It be Rutherford B.
Hayes. The failings of the rest are
criticised unsparingly, and the weak
points which history has already
assigned to them are pointed out
with a freedom which will not com
mend Mr. Sherman to the good will
of his party leaders. 7
Thus he takes his revenge for .the
great disappointment of a lifetime. ■
Never for the better part of twenty
years was Mr. Sherman's eye taken
from the presidency. That highest
honor was the center of his hope and
his ambition. More than once It
seemed within his reach. It is not
in him to abstain from pointing out
by indirection- how much less
worthy in his esteem than himself
were the men who succeeded where
he had failed. - Thus is characteristic
of Sherman's disposition; which has
been throughout coldly selfish and
unsparing of those who stood in his
path. There is no reason -to question I
the truth' of his assertions. The
facts upon which he dwells . have
been accepted by the public already
as historic truth. The corruption
fostered by those who had the con
fidence of Grant, the vanity and j
weakness of Garfield, the narrow
ness of Harrison, are all familiar
to the American people. None the
less will they refuse to regard more
highly for his exposure of them the
man who was at some time or other
the trusted friend and close associ
ate of them all. Mr. Sherman's
memoirs will command and interest
a wide audience. But perhaps he did
not count upon the surest effect
which they will produce; and that is,
to confirm, the opinion already
formed of him as a man of cold
ambition and little capable of
generous friendships, just as his own
unsparing estimate stamps with the
seal of truth the faults of others.
As far as his party is concerned, it
will thank him little for writing !
certain chapters in its history' which
show to the world the interior
mechanism of distrust, deception and
greed of power that has directed its j
TRYING TO GET TOGETHER.
The annual meeting of the stock
holders of the Northern Pacific road
passed off without any of the dis
cussion that might have been ex
pected from the present condition of
the property. Brayton Ives and his
supporters are now so firmly en
trenched in power that no opposition
was made to their continued con
trol. The ticket which they repre
sent was elected without opposition,
and the one interesting feature was
that Mr. Ives declared in his ad
dress that the plan of reorganization'
through the agency of the Great
Northern had failed, and that there
was little prospect of its ultimate
success. Mr. Ives also made the pre
diction that the present complica
tions in the management of the road"
will be of short duration. This
prophecy, at least, it seems reason
able to think, may be realized in fact.
All of those who have been appoint
ed to responsible place, realizing the
ruinous misfortune that would fol
low a divided control and a clash of
authority within the road itself,
have been honestly endeavor
ing to find some mode of get
ting together. Mr. Burleigh, who is
receiver for the western end of the
road, has exhibited a conciliatory
spirit, and expresses his belief that
his authority will be extended, later,
over the whole system.
It looks as if a solution of the diffi
culty might be found along this line.
Inasmuch as the principal officers of
the road have been continued and
confirmed in their authority by all
the different receivers, there is no
disturbance in its practical opera-
tion. If the courts which have ap-
pointed Messrs. Bigelow and Mc-
Henry were to add Mr. Burleigh to
the list, and if the courts which have
appointed Mr. Burleigh were to name
the other two gentlemen as addition-
al receivers, such course would un-
doubtedly be accepted, in all the dif
ferent jurisdictions, as a happy
method of once more consolidating
the different receiverships, and put-
ting the property into the hands of
three competent men. That this
would happen at once is probable
were it not for the question that still
remains of original jurisdiction.
As we pointed out at the incep
tion of this controversy, the real
difficulty lies not among receivers or
factions, but In the breaking down
of the rule of comity that the courts
have hitherto observed, and the con-
sequent necessity of some under-
standing among the different judges.
If the courts at the eastern end of
the line insist that reports shall be
made to and orders taken from
them, and those at the western end
make the same demand, then there

is no adjustment ln sight, and the ■
most harmonious relations between
the receivers themselves would not
solve the problem. The trouble from
the first has been the breaking out
of a conflict of jurisdictions, and not
a conflict of individuals. The rem
edy must be applied by the courts
through an agreement as to which
one of them shall have directive pow

The report ithat the nations of
Europe may unite In an understand
ing to protest against the Monroe
doctrine Is more likely to embody
their desire than to indicate their
probable action. The first . an
nouncement of the Monroe doc
trine itself was occasioned by Jusit
such a coalition, to prevent the
spread of Republican Institutions on
this continent by a united effort in
Europe. It was then that we utter- ,
ed those words of warning;
which have never since been
forgotten or ignored, and have
been handed down among
ourselves under the name of the
Monroe doctrine. What the nations
of Europe could not do when we wera
comparatively feeble, and their right
to colonize and establish their in
stitutions on American soil had not :
been questioned, they are not likely
to accomplish today, when we are
a match for all of them combined,
and have taken a position that will
be respected by the aggressor in the i
future as it has been in the past.
* Probably none of the other powers, '
and certainly not Great Britain, is
fatuous enough t to attempt the- for
mation of an alliance to oppose the
Monroe doctrine. They have noth
ing to gain by it, because the soil of
the American continent is already so
well appropriated that little or noth
ing remains to tempt the spoiler.
They might feel it worth while to
attempt to get a larger footing on
this side of the Atlantic, if It could
be done peaceably. But that Eng
land, France or Germany Is going to
risk and invite war with the United
States, which Is what It would mean
for them to reject the Monroe doc
trine and oppose its enforcement,
and all for the sake of such petty
spoil as might fall to some one by
becoming the aggressor of a South
American state, is something that
lacks probability because it lacks
sanity. That the nations of Europe
do not like the Monroe doctrine and
feel the check which it imposes, is,
no doubt, the oase. That they
should propose, at this late day, to
overthrow it by force of arms, is a

public office since March 4, 1855."
There is less of a personal narrative
ln the- book 'than might bo expected.;
Mr. Sherman speaks modestly of hi*
boyhood days, of his family and of
his first appearance In public life.
Many of his Important public ad
dresses during the slavery agitation
and during the political campaigns
in which he took part arc- embodied
In the book. His account of the civil
war and of his association with Abra
ham Lincoln Is full of interest ail a
narrative and as a historical record
of th© stirring events of that period.
In writing about himself Mr. Sherman
Is candid to the point of self criticism.
For Instance he states that at the age
of nineteen years he got into bad com
pany and was on. several occasions
conscious of being intoxicated. In re
lating the incident which Influenced
his whole life in this respect he says:
"On one occasion, the fall of 1830, I
went home very sick from drinking.
My mother received me with much sur
prise and sorrow, but neither com
plained nor scolded, and with the ut
most kindness put me to bed' and
watched over and cared for me. I was
not enough stupified to be uncon
scious of my degradation and her af
fection, and then and there resolved
never to be In such condition again."
Of his wealth and various personal
and -political attacks that have been
made upon, him, he makes this state
ment, after giving his reply to an ac
cusation on that score made years ago:
"I have often since been accused of
the crime of 'being rich,' but as nearly
all my possessions are visible to the
naked eye, and their history and ac
quisition are known to so many-, I
think I. am not required to prove that
I have not made them as the result of
legislation of my holding public
As showing the stinging criticism of
which he Is capable, the following
statement, made by Mr. Sherman at
the time that the impeachment pro
ceedings against President Johnson
were instituted, is of interest. He said
of Mr. Johnson: ■
"The truth is, he is a slave to his
passions and resentments. No man
can confide in him. I regard him as a
foolish and stubborn man, doing even ,
right things in a wrong way, and in a :
position where the evil that he does is
immensely increased by his manner of
doing it." ' --• 7i I i 4.
The views of Mr. Sherman on the
financial question are so well known
that it is not necessary to repeat them.
It is sufficient to say that he is con-
sistent. All of the legislation on this
subject during the last half century .
Is carefully recited and analyzed. The
details concerning the passage of the
act of 1873 are fully recorded. In 1876
Mr. Sherman prepared and delivered .
a speech oni the repeal of the resump
tion act of 1875. which he says is the
best presentation he has ever been
able to offer in support of the financial
policy of the government, and espe
cially In support of the resumption of
specie payments. These extracts from
the address are quoted as indicating
Mr. Sherman's theory of money:
"All intelligent men agree that every
great commercial nation must have
both a metallic currency and a paper
currency; the one as the standard of
value by which all things are meas
ured, which daily measures your bonds
and notes as it measures wheat, cot-
ton and land; and also a paper or
credit currency, which, from its con-
venience. of handling or transfer, must
be the medium of exchange in the
great body of the business life."
"I am one of those who believe that
a United States note, issued directly
by the government and convertible on
demand into gold coin, or a govern- .
ment bond equal in value to gold, is
the best currency we) can adopt: that it
Is to be the currency of the future, not
only in the United States, but in Great
Britain as well; and that such a cur-
rency might properly continue to be
a legal tender, except when coin is
specifically stipulated for.
7 THE TRUE STANDARD. . -
Another extract from the utterances
of the author defines in a word his
position on the silver question. After -
relating his axioms on sound finance,
"So that for all practical purposes
we may regard gold as the only true
standard, the true money of the world,
by which the value of all property,
of all productions, of all credit, and
of every medium of exchange, and es
pecially of all paper money, is tested."
Rich in ripe conclusions, full of inter-
est as a personal narrative, instruc
tive as a political record and
complete as a financial history
of the country, the work adds to re-
cent books of American history one
of general interest and of value to
students of politics and finance.

The jobbers of Sb. Paul who are

and discussed what was best to be
done in the matter of tihe assign
ment. A deal of dissatisfaction has
been expressed at the manner in
which the accounts placed with the
insolvent company for collection
have been 'handled, but it appears
to be impossible to find out anything
definite regarding the disposition of

Northwestern Cordage Company
i * Against W. C. Leistikow.
,-. The suit' of the Northwestern Cord-
age 'company against William C. Leis-
tikow; on trial before Judge Kelly and
a jury, borders on the sensational
from the defendant's point of view.
Leistikow Is a wealthy mill man in
North Dakota, and he claims that
when he was induced to subscribe for
stock in the plaintiff corporation it was
represented to him that the liabilities '
of the Institution were only trifling,
and that preferred stock would be is-
sued to him. He claims the accounts
were even changed to deceive him.
After paying part of his subscription
he found that the liabilities were enor- :
mous, he claims, and instead of re-
ceiving preferred stock he was issued '
common stock. He then refused to pay '
any more on his subscription, and the
action is to recover the $6,900 of a
balance due. President Drake, of the
cordage company, was on the stand
for several hours yesterday, and it was
a battle royal between him and the
attorney for the plaintiff on one side
and the attorney for the defense on
the other. »
FIRM FALLS OUT.
Receiver Is Wanted for the Sani
There is war between the individuals
interested in the Northwestern Sani- .
tation company, and the result was
the filing of an application for the ap
pointment . of a receiver yesterday.
Jacob H. Bohrer and Hesiry Hickman
are the plaintiffs in the action and
Michael J. Moriarity is made defend-
ant, all of whom compose the company
named. The complaint alleges that
the company Is in debt to the amount
of ?487.42 and has no means of paying,
nor has it any prospective "profits from
the business; that the defendant neg
lects to devote his time to the bus-
mess, and that he gave a bill of sale
to the property to his brother, B. H.
Moriarity, for the purpose of defraud-
ing plaintiffs. For these reasons they
want the property turned over to a re-
ceiver for the benefit of the creditors.

discovered It for him. The point is
that the section providing for brokers'
licenses applies not only to fire insur
ance agents, but to all persons In the
state doing brokerage business, wheth
er in life or accident insurance or coy-
ering, any class of risks whatsoever.
When McDonald & Hood made the
discovery their representative hasten-
ed to the capitol, where they secured a
license, yesterday afternoon. The firm
is agent for the Fidelity and Casualty
company, of New York, an accident
concern; but the law covers them as
well as the fire agents.
The insurance agents of the state are
falling in line rapidly. Since the
Globe announced that Col. Shan-
drew, of St. Paul, had followed the lead
of C. W, S,exton, of Minneapolis, and
taken out a license, thirteen agents In
Minneapolis and ten in St. Paul have
parched into the office of the Insurance
commissioner and laid down their $10
each, One agent from Duluth applied
for ft licence yesterday, and Winona,
Stillwater and the other large towns
will doubtless be heard from next.

As the Episcopal convention will
close early next week, tomorrow will
be the last opportunity given for
hearing the distinguished bishops
and clergy in the pulpits of the
Episcopal churches In this city.' The
people will probably make the most
of this last chance as the opportunity
will perhaps never occur again.
"This city has bean favored," re
marked a gentleman yesterday,
'•during the last two Sundays in
having the privilege of listening to
some of the" brightest intellects of
the Episcopal church throughout
the land. Although the convention
bias been located in Minneapolis, St.
Paul has received the lion's share in
the way of pulpit oratory and social
intercourse, and various gatherings.
They will carry back to their homes
larger and broader ideas of this
growing Northwest country, especi
ally of the two metropolitan cities.
The Episcopal church," he con-
tinued, "through their august pres
ence here will in the future be better
known and perhaps more highly ap
j predated. Churchmen throughout
the diocese will long remember with j
feelings of the deepest gratituted
the hospitality and kindness shown
to the visiting delegates of the
convention by those who are not
in any way connected with the
church, and perchance have no sym
pathy with her as a church; never-
theless the spontaneous outburst of
hospitality evidenced in a very sub-
stantial manner on all sides is some-
thing that will find a warm spot in
tj£e hearts of the recipients as long
as life lasts. St. Paul and Minne
apolis will be cherished in the hearts
of those who were fortunate enough
to be present during the convention
as two of the most hospitable cities
on the face of the earth. One of the
visiting bishops remarked: 'Why,
even the newsboys and bootblacks
will go out of their way any dis
tance to be accommodating.' "
Sunday the following bishops will
be heard for the last time. They are
all brilliant pulpit orators, men of
vast learning and profound elo

A. Hall, bishop of Vermont. He will
deliver a sermon on "The Sacraments
of the Church." This is Bishop Hall's
first public appearance in St. Paul. He
had to cancel all *his engagements just
previous to the convention on account
of an accident. Prior to his elevation
to the episcopate he had earned the
reputation of being the greatest
preacher among the "Cowley Fathers,"
an English association of mission
priests. Fr. Hall, as he was then call-
ed, was known not only here but
throughout the continent for services
rendered in the cause of missions. The
subject chosen is one perhaps he most
excels in. The support he gave to the
late bishop of Massachusetts, Phillips
Brook, brought down upon his devoted
head the censure of his superior. He
was ordered back to England only to
be recalled to this country as bishop of
Vermont. He is the author of several
works of a spiritual character. Those
who fail to hear this gifted preacher
will miss a. great opportunity.
TWENTY-FIVE LONG YEARS.
Presbyterians Join in a Recep
tion to Rev. Dr. Edward-*.
A notable event in Presbyterian
church circles in this city was the
reception tendered Dr. and Mrs. M. -D.
Edwards, of the Dayton avenue church,
last evening. The occasion was the
twenty-first anniversary of Dr. Ed-
wards' assumption of his present
charge and was enjoyed by many of
those who had issued his call twenty
one years ago.
In 1874 Dr. Edwards accepted a call
to the Dayton avenue church, the con
gregation at that time consisting of
but twenty members, and has continu
ously occupied its pulpit up to the
present time. He has seen its member
ship increased to 473 and a handsome
brown stone edifice replace the little
frame structure in which he preached
his first sermon.
On his advent in the city Dr. Ed
wards was a young man, out of college
but a few years and unmarried. He,
however, soon entered the matrimonial
state and has since seen many of those
who were children when he first came
to the church assume the same rela
tions, and has, in many instances, been
the officiating clergyman. Some three
years ago Dr. Edwards received a call
to a distant city, and when his congre
gation realized that there was a possi
bility of losing their pastor, their
regret took the form of a lengthy peti
tion, signed by each one of the mem
bers, asking him not to leave them.
The happy result was that the doctor
refused to accept the call and is still
the honored and beloved pastor of one
of the largest and most Influential
Churches in the city.
With one exception Dr. Edwards Is
the oldest "settler" minister in the
city and the fact is the more remarka
ble In view of the constant changes oc
curring among the churches of today.
Dr. Edwards has so endeared himself
to his congregation that they will not
consider for a moment even the possi
bility of a change, and though the
fleeting years may bring changes of
every other description, none can hope
to succeed Dr. Edwards In the' hearts
of the people to whom he has minister
ed so lovingly and faithfully over a
score of years.
During the evening the parlors were
filled with those desiring to congratu
late the doctor and his wife upon the
happy oCCa*i?». and many were the
reminiscences of the Sorry (t-i*.*? in the
history of the church which have cut !
minated in the present auspicious con- j
ditions. Denominational differences I

ST. LIKEJS DAY.
Beautiful Sermons in Several of
the Episcopal Churches.
Yesterday being St. Luke's day serv
ices were held in several of the
churches, and In a few of the Episcopal
churches of the city sermons were
preached by prominent divines from
various parts of the world last evening.
At St. Paul's church Dr. Battershaw.
of Albany, delivered a very beautiful
discourse on the subject of sainthood.
At the Church of the Good Shepherd
Bishop McKim, of Japan, discoursed
on the subject of Christianity among
the people in that far-off land. He
began by saying that he could not
understand why the people of this
country should incline toward Esoteric
Buddhism, especially the women, for
Buddhism discriminated against wom
en. It never recognized her as the
equal of man, and the only way she
could get to heaven was to change
her sex after she had departed her
earthly life. He said that the Japan
ese have no violent objection to Chris-
tianity, and he paid a high tribute to
Francis Xavier, the missionary who
had done so much there some three
hundred years ago. He said that after
the first Catholic missionaries became
established there they dabbled in pol
itics and were finally- driven out. But
some forty years ago when the Cath
olics again established missions there,
thousands stood ready to embrace the
doctrines of Christianity. So liberal
had the people become and so strong
their inclinations toward the church
of Christ that Christian chaplains are
now allowed to go with the army,
whereas the native priests of their
once sacred religious beliefs are not
permitted to go with the army at all.
At St. James' church a large con-
gregation assembled to hear Bishop '
Coleman, of Delaware, preach, and
there was also a large gathering at
St. Peter's church to hear Dr. Cary,
rector of Bethseda church,, at Sara
toga, X. Y.

speed trial run today over the

Notwithstanding the fact that she
