Comptroller of the Currency James
II. Eckels is giving evidence that lie
is the right man in the right place.
The feeling that in appointing this
young, though lirilliant young lawyer
and editor, of Ottawa, Illinois, to the
responsible position of comptroller,
President Cleveland made a grievous
error, has been reversal and it is uni
versally acknowledged that no more
capable official has ever held that
onerous position. Though unschooled
in finances when assuming the
coruptrollership Mr. Eckels has
completely 'grasped the situa
tion and haudles it in these try
ins and ticklish financial times with a
master hand. Knowing that many
of the banks that are, per force oi cir
cumstances, suspended though perfect
ly solvent, Comptroller Eckels has
rendered the'n such assistance to re
sume business, as was within his pow
er. The result of the judicious actions
of the comptroller has been in impor
tant factor in the restoration" of con
fidence which is now taking a tangible
In this connection it will be inter
esting to glean a few facts from a
statement winch Jlr. -kofcies mi
given out, relating to the number and
location of suspended national hanks,
and primary causes oi their suspen
sion. Since January 1 there has been
10-3 national banks suspended. Of
these fourteen have resumed business.
and the applications for resumption
of fifty-eight others are in the hamls
of the comptroller with the prospect
that all the applications will be
grauted. This leaves only thirty
three in the hands of the receivers and
should all of these fail to meet their
liabilities ami resume business,
the disaster has not been
so gteat when it is considered that on
January 1, 18U3, there were 3.8JI0
national banks in operation.
Of the suspensions, Colorado heads
the list with thirty-eight national
banks and fifteen suspensions ; Mon
tana next with thirty-one banks and
six suspensions; California thirty-six
banks ami six suspensions ; Washing
ton sixty-one banks and ten suspen
sions. Out of Missoiiri'ssevcniy-six nation
al bauks three have u-p?nded pay
meut. There are twenty-one states and
territories in which no suspensions
have occurred, viz: Alaska, Arazo
nia, Arkansas, Conuecticutt, Dele
ware, District of Columbia, Idaho,
Indian Territory, Louisiana, Maine,
Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota,
Nevada, New Jersey, Pennsylvania,
Rhode Islandv South Carolina, A'er
mont, Virginia, and West Vir
ginia. It is further worthy of note that no
national bauks have failed in Boston,
Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Pittsburg,
Baltimore, Washington, Buffalo,
Cincinnati, St. Louis, New Orleans,
San Francisco, Minneaolis, St. Paul
and numbers of other great commer
cial centers, and that but one has
closed in New York City, two in
Chicago and one in Milwaukee.
The cause of the failures in .New
York and Chicago were due
to mismanagement as were a number
Local scares haye caused many of
late to suspend. Nine of the banks
which failed were robbed by of
ficials who are now under arrest.
Mr. Eckels has been harshly criti
cised for stating at the New York
bankers' banquet that the majority of
failures of banks were due
to reckless speculation most
ly of the "boom" order and were
confined largely to the western states.
His statements are borne out by
grouping the states and giving the
suspensions thus: New Euglam
states 2, Eastern suites 2, Middle ant;
Mississippi Valley states 15, North
western states 6, Western states f5,
Southern states 25. Total, 105.
While the condition of stocks re
mains feverish and unsettled there 1
no doubt but that matters are calming
down. It will require some time, ot
course, for the proper adjustment o
values which have been thrown into
uch a chaotic state during the pas
But it will only require the suli-
tluing oil of the repeal of the Sherman
law, devoid of any false conccivct
free coinage substitute, to bring cos
mos out of chaos and restore coufi
lence and values.
AVOID PARTY HERESY.
General Weaver, the populist can
didate for president in 1802, is stroll
ing over the country making speeches
for which he is paid 825 per day am
expenses, lie lias luvaueu .Missouri
and will speak at Boonville Monday
tt i i x r
night. General Weaver's missionary
work is, of course, in the interest of
the populist party and judging from
reports from places where he has ad
dressed the people, he is making the
most of the situation. In democratic
strongholds he advises the fusiou of
the democrats with the populists ant
in populistic vineyards he steadfastly
preaches the peoples' party doctrine,
pure and simple, and excoriates the
leniocratie nartv in a manner that
urpaes the most rabid republican
demogogue. Members of the demo
cratic part- should give no heed nor
aid to this renegade republiin, green-
backer and all-round political trick
ster, lie has boxetl the political com
pass many times antl always from
selfi-h and dishonest motive. The
West is firmly democratic now.
and the greatest menace to the perpe
tuity of the party strengtl
in the West is the
inoculation of populistic doctrines
under the gui-c of that deceitful so
ductive. fusion. Nothing has been
gained by fusion in Kansas, Colorado
nor Washington. It is a ease of
whether vou would rather be robbed
by a stieak thief or by a professional
highwayman. The latter you can
fortify against, but the former perpe
trates his crime under the cover of the
night, professiug friendship during the
day. While it is only in a small
measure responsible for them the
democratic party hides its face in
shame when it thinks of the part it
played in the elevation of Lewelling,
Ponnoyer and Waite to gubernatorial
chairs. The democratic party can
win on its own sound fundamental
principles without stooping to caprice
or coveting selfish, anarchistic ami
Bv surrendering much of her most
aluable territory, and paying a large
tun as a reprisal, Siam has averted a
disastrous war with France. Ujwn
the battlefield the semi-civilized
soldiers of Siam are no match for the
well trained men constituting the
army of France. Bather than have
his country devasted by the forces of
France, the king of Siam wisely de
cided to accept, unconditionally.
the ultimatum of the French
republic. Siam's king did not,
however, surrender until he was
fully assured that he could exject no
aid from any of the European na
tions, without the assistance ot which
to make war on France would be the
height of folly. It was expected that
Great Britain would go to the rescue
of Siam, but she refused to interfere
so long as her interests were not
jeopardized. Under these circum
stances Siam had to choose whether it
were better to succumb to France's
rapacity before or after a car
nage, the inevitable result of which.

Wisely Siam preferred to be robbet
without being assaulted. Bruises un
der the circumstances would have
been marks of foolhardiness and idiocy
more than braver'.
Many of Tub Bazoo' democratic
contemporaries are unduly mortified
because it is for sound money and
they are not very loving in their ad
monitions for it to wander from its
alleged wayward course. It's all
right, dear brothers. The Bazoo
