Payable, Principal and Interest, In Gold,
to Refund the Debt and Retire the Green
back, and Treanry Notes Government
to G Entirely Out of the Banking Busi
ness As to Currency Further as to the
In ion Pacific Sate.
Washington, Oct. 28. Secretary cf ths
Treasury Gage read to the president
and the cabinet the recommendations
as to financial legislation which he will
make to congress in his enr.ual report.
lie proposes to strike at tae root of all
the difflcultk-s that have cmbariasvd
he treasury during the last few yearn
by recommending that the count: y be
put unequivocally upon the gold basisi
aod that the treasury be taken out of
tho banking business. Such radical
egislation as he proposes may be im
possible to secure, but if his advice Is
net followed he will throw upon con
gress the responsibility for refusing to
correct rhe defects of the present cur
Keynote of the Secretary's Plan.
The keynote of the secretary's scheme
s the refunding of the present bonded
debt of the country in gold borfiis bear
's per cent. int"rest. He lielieves
that bonus which declare on their face
that they are payable, principal and in
terest, in gold, can easily be Bold at that
rate. Aa most of thw present bonded
debt of the country bears interest at 4
and 5 per cent., the annual saving in in
terest by refunding would be about $17,-
COfl.OOft. This would more than pay the
nterert on the $2C0.000.O('O additional 2Vi
per Oi-nt. gold ljcnds which would have
to be issued to carry out the second
ature T the secretary's plan, which
is tho retirement of all the outstanding
greenbacks and Sherman notes, so as to
; no ntes whatever outstandin
which coul 1 be used to drain the treas
ury of gold.
Ifou- Kp Would Supply Currency.
With the retirement of the Sherman
notes the government would be left with
silver bullion in the treasury vaults pur
chased under the Sherman law at a cost
of $in4."C0.C00. This could either be
sold at the market price of silver or it
could gradually be coined into silver
dollars to the amount of $125,000,000.
To take the piace of the eurrmcy Sec
rctary dage will propose that the banks
be allowed to Issue notes up to the par
value of the government bonds ,
posited by thorn and he believes that
practically all of the additional bonds
that would be issued to retire the gov
ernment notes would bo absorbed by the
banks as basis frj- circulation. He will
also projiose something on the line of
the po-oailed Hnltlmore plan, whereby
banks will be allowed to issua addition
al circulation, probably up ro 2o per
coot, ff thew capital stock, ample pro
vision being made for its security.
Circulation In Free Silver States.
He will also recommend that the tax
on national bank circulation be reduced
to Jtrft enough to cover the expense of
administering the law and supervis
ing the banks. In order to give in
creased circulation to the southern
slates and other localities In which tho
silver movement gained strength chielly
on the ground that more currency was
needed for transacting the business of
the country, the sorretary will recero-
rnerrd thnt national banks be permitted
to organize with $25,000 capital. It is
beNeved that such a provision, coupled
with proper safeguards to protect cir
culation. would give to these communi
ties a safe and somewhat elastfc cur
rency which could be put out by the
local banks as It wmild be needed for
moving the crops or meeting any other
demand for money.

Woodford's Cabin Received Giving the Snb-
stance of Spain's Reply.
Washington. Oct. 2S. The event cf
yesterday at the state department was
the receipt of the lor.g-expected cable
gram from United States Minis
ter Woodford at Madrid transmitting
the reply of the Spanish government to
his represet.tations In the Interest of
peace In Cuba. This message began to
rome in installments at 2 o'clock Tues
day r.ight and it waa nearly noon yes
terday before it was all in hand at the
state department. It was not the length
of the messag that occupied the wires
all of that time, but the fact that it was
all In grours of figures, and that it was
probably being filed in small batches as
it was turned Hsto the complicated state
department ciph-T iijladrid. All of this
Work had to be undone at the state de
partment, and the message translated
from the cipher back again into gottf
Krglish. This occupied nearly all of the
day, so that It was half-past 3 o'cloik
before the first fair copy of the message
was turned nut.
From tin if Hi ial Ir.formatlcn that has
reached certain administration officials
In advance of this message of Woc.dford
