WAsniSGTo,Dec. IS. "Fund the green
backs" is an expression heard in congress
so often now that if there am any original
greennackers in hearing they must feel a
cold chill down the back or a hot indigna
tion against those who would dare to pro
pose the retirement of the "money that
went to the front." The fact is, however,
that it Is the greenback that is causing all
the trouble with the government gold
reserve. The greenback is the fellow that
walks into the sub-treasuries and says to
the yellow dollar "Come out o' that," and
the yellow dollar comes. Then that same
greonback who called out the gold dollar
is immediately reissued so he can come in
and call out another gold dollar some
All Meaa Greenback Retire-seat. .
So all the bills for a new banking sys
tem now before the public mean the re
tirement of the greenback to a greater or
lesser degree. The matter was interest
ingly debated yesterday in the house.
Sickles had the floor and at the start
created considerable amusement by say
ing that he very much desired before re
tiring from congress to put on record a
vote or two in favor of the policy of the
administration. He desired to support
this bill. There were some good features
in it, and he would like to see it perfected
in order that he could give a cheerful vote
for a bill inteuded to relieve the financial
embarrassments of the country. Two
evils threatened the country. First, the
serious drain of gold from the treasury as
a result of the outstanding local tenders.
In this bill he found no remedy for this
alarming menace. This fact constituted
his first criticism of the bilL It was in
this respect instil oquate. The government
paper was itt reality a government debt
which ought to be funded.
All Done by Jvha Sherman.
"lt us return,'" said Sickles, "to the
souud principles of the days before the
war. Let us adapt the AlcCullough plan
of funding the greenbacks."
"Did not the Democrats prevent the re
demption of the greenbacks;" interposed
alKer (Kcp.) ot Massachusetts.
"The retirement of the greenbacks, it is
my recollection," interrupted vVarner
(Dent.) of New York," was prevented by
the Miennan proviso."
"I never heard of any bank feature of
our financial system thatwas not charged
to John Sherman," retorted Walker.
"Nor I, cither," replied Warner.
"The difficulty with the financial policy
of the Republican party since the war
has always been the opposition of the
Democrats." said Walker. "They com
pelled compromises. That is the trouble
Conapiracy Against the Verdant Uollar.
Sickles, in whose time the above colloquy
had been proceeding, at this point took
hand. So high, he said, was his estimate
of John Sherman, whom he reirarded
the guiding financial light in this country.
that he felt sure he would Tote for a meas
ure to fund the greenbacks.
"How many Democratic votes will you
furnish for a measure 'to fund the green
backs; asked walker.
"A good many," shouted Coombs, of
"If you furnish a third," replied Walker,
"we will pass such a bill."
Sickles expressed a belief that if an ef
fort were made In the right spirit on both
sides a hill to fund the greenbacks would
pass. He a least would vote for it.
Mae aaehnaetta Compliments New York.
"We can always depend on General
Sickles for patriotic action on the battle
field and on the floor of this house," said
The members on the floor and the spec
tators in the galleries applauded and the
general bowed his acknowledgements.
After McLaurin and others had spoken
Springer introduced a substitute for the
Carlisle bill. It seems that the decision
to introduce a substitute was taken out of
the possibilities and into the established
facts at a meeting of the currency com
mittee before the house met.
REVIEW OF THE NEW BILL,
Showing Where the M
Changes Are Made,
The substitute, however, has the ap
proval of Secretary Carlisle and is sub
stantially a new measure, although some
of the sections of the original measure
are retained in the new bill. The now bill
is arranged so as to show the new features
In parentheses. ' The first section is as fol
lows, with the changes in parentheses
"That (so much of) all acts and parts of
acts as require or authorize the deposit of
United States bonds te secure circulating
notes issued by national banking associa
tions (or as require such associations to
deposit or keep on deposit United States
bonds for any purpose except as security
or public money), be, and the same is
hereby repealed (as to associations taking
out circulation under this act); and such
notes shall not contain tbe statement that
they are so secured."
bection two is changed so that banks
cannot only deposit legal tenders to secure
I circulation, but also "currency certificates
Issued under section o.lOa of the revised
statutes of the United States." In section
five provision is made - for keeping up the
safety fund, and in addition to the -terms
of the original bill it is provided that the
collection of said tax of .25 of 1 per cent.
for each half year shall be resumed and
continued until the said fund is restored
to aa amount equal to 6 per cent, upon
the total -circulation outstanding. "All
circulation notes of failed national banks
not redeemed on presentation to the
United States shall bear in tercet at the
rate of six per cent, per annum from tbe
date of the suspension of tbe bank until
thirty davs after nublic notice has been
given that funds are on hand for their re
demption and such notes shall constitute
first lien upon all moneys thereafter re
ceived into the safety f and."
Section seven is entirely now and is as
follows: "That every national banking
association heretofore organised as hav
ing bonds on deposit to secure circulation
may withdraw such bonds upon the ue-
osttaf lawful newsy of the United States
, now Bcoridad by law. and thareafter such
ngma, n-iTtteg-n ana irnnianittee w-ttjih
Section eight specifics that the portion
ot the national banking act Co be repealed
Is jmitnd to so much of section 12,- as dl-re-Jts
the secretary of th treasury to re
ceive deposits of gold and to issue certifi
cates thereon." '
SECTIONS COVERING STATE BANKS.
la entirety Kow and Another
That Is Moeh Change. - -
An entire new provision is added as to
state banks as follows: "Whenever the
secretary of the treasury and the ch.p
trolWr of the currency shall bo sittisftY-d
that any banking corporation duly organ
ized under the laws of any state and
which transacts no other than a banking
business, as provided in this section, hits
been incorporated under the laws of the
state in which it is located, which laws re
quire that the stockholders shall be in
dividually liable for the redemption of
its circulating notes to the full extent of
their ownership of stock, and that such
laws require that the circulating notes
thereof shall constitute a first lien upon
all the assets of the bank and also that
such laws require such banks to koep on
deposit at all times with an cfueia! of the
state authorized I y law to receive and
hold the same a guarantee fund as re
quired in the fourth paragraph of this sec
tion, they shall issue to said bank a cer
tificate to that effect.
Thereupon said bank mar issue its
notes as provided in this act, and there
after tho tax of 10 per cent, heretofore im-
posed by law upon the circulation of the
notes 01 state bunks shall not be asseswHl
or collected upon the notes of such bank
unless it appears that said bank has issued
circulating notes in excess of ? per cent.
of its Htid up mid unimpaired capital, or
thitt its capital is impaired and has re
mained so for thirty days, or that the
bank has not kept on deposit with the
state official authorized by law to receive
and hold the same a guarantee fund as re
quired in the fourth itarrgraph of this sec
tion, or that said Intnk has not promptly
redeemed its notes in lawful money at par
on demand at its principal office or at one
or more of its branch offices, if it has
branch oftiras; and that no person or cor
poration other than the bank issuing such
notes In violation of the provisions of this
act shall be liable to the tax of 10 percent.
upon the circulating notes of state banks
now providi-d by law."
Most of section eleven is new and is as
follows, the nw portions being in paren
theses: (That any banking association
organised under She laws of any state
may deposit with the treasurer of the
United States legal tender notes and re
ceive certificates therefor in the manner
provided in section 6,1113 of the revised
statutes of the United States and) the sec
retary of the treasury may, under proper
rules end regulations to he established ly
him, permit such banks to procure and
use iu the preparation of their notes the
distinctive paper used in printing United
States securities; but no state bank shall
print or engrave its notes in similitude of
a United Slates note or certificate or na
tionul bank note.
Adjourn, for the Holiday. Today.
AsnTM-iTOiN, ih-z. 22. The ent ire time
of the house was ocrupiixl in debute on
the currency bill. Before the close of the
session Springer presented the amend
ments to the measure agreed upon by the
Democratic members of the committee
and endorsed, it is said, by the secretary
of the treasury. The bill as altered by
these amendments will lie offered at the
proper time as a substitute for the original
bill, and upon this sulistitute the fate of
the measure will depend. The resolution
for tho holiday adjournment to liegin to
day was agreed to early in the afternoon.
