SHAW SEES "AUGER III
Secretary of Treasury in An
nual Report Recommends
Change in Currency.
Washington, D. C, Dec. 8. Secre
tary of the Treasury Shaw in his an
nual report again recommends such
change in the currency system of the
United States as will cause it to meet
the demands made upon it, and sees
possible danger in the growth of trust
companies in large cities unless such
organizations are managed conserva
tively. Pointing to the decrease of $23,000,
000 in the customs receipts' for the fis
cal year ended June 20, 1904. and a fur-;
ther reduction In the early months of
the present fiscal year, the secretary
says the receipts now are increasing
and that there is no reason to believe
the revenues for the year will be lower
than In 1904.
Cauae of Cuatoma Oeereaae.
Abnormal conditions in 1903 are
given as the reason for the decrease in
revenue, rather than to depression in
1904. Duties on iron and steel in 1903
were $17,000,000 and only $9,000,000 In
the last fiscal year. Abolition of the
war tax on tea and the countervailing
duty on sugar, and the reciprocity
treaty with Cuba are given us causes
of nearly $10,000,000 less revenue in
Fnvora Currency Improvement.
Referring to the currency system,
which he says has proved safe and re
liable under every practical test,
though complicated, the secretary says
the system has one recognized defect
in that it is non -elastic. He repeats
the language of his last annual report,
in which he says the currency "does
uot respond to the varying needs of
seasons, or of localities, or of chang
ing conditions of business."
Tbe recommendations of the secre
tary at that time are repeated to the

ed of More Bullion.
The secretary points the apparent
need of soon providing bullion for sub
sidiary coinage, owing to the fact that
this coinage is approaching the limit
set by law. He also recom mends that
he be given authority for tbe recoluing
Into subsidiary coins of standard silver
dollars that by wear have become un
fit for circulation.
It alw is recommended by the wv
retary that tbe law be so amended as
to rest in his office discretionary power
as to the proportion of gold coin and
bullion in the reserve fund, the law at
present practically limiting the amount
of bullion to $50,000,000 of the $150,
000.000 fund. Tbe demand for gold
bars for export, which in the last year
amounted to $02,101,585.02, is given as
reason for the recommendation.
