China Has a Manetary System
That Borders on the Chaotic.
Of the many strange things in China
not the least strange is its currency.
To the foreigner it seems a miracle
that any business can be transacted
successfully with such a meriiuw of
exchange. It has been described us
chaotic. Nevertheless business aud
trade flourish in China, which speaks
volumes for the business acumen of
the Chinese. Perhaps the fact that
trade flourished in China long before
such a thing as currency was known
accounts for the fact that the Chinese,
with such a lax system as they now
possess, still staud in be front rank
of commercial nations.
In China all forms of exchange from
barter up are In use. A very large
part of the country's business is done
against the actual delivery of weighed
sliver. For convenience silver is melt
ed into rough ingots having the shape
of the Chinese shoe. These silver
shoes have stamped upon them their
fineness and weight. The unit of
weight is the tael. which is equal to a
quantity of silver weighing 5S0 grains
troy and is worth about 00 cents iu
The tael is not an Ingot nor a coin,
but simply an abstract term signifying
a unit of weight, such as a "pound" of
butter or an "ounce"' of gold. Though
an abstract term, it .is the measure ot
wealth and the unit of value through
out the length and breadth of China.
A man buys a business for so many
taels of silver. His profits are com
puted In taels. When he makes pay
ment he weighs out the silver accord
ing to this urjt.
The silver shoes vary In weight from
one to seventy-five taels. All silvet
shops and banks have forges, wbers
the silver is melted in iron ladles and
ponred into molds. The smelters with
their ladles and molds remind one of
cooks. They stir the silver with a pair
of metal chopsticks. To one not aware
of what they were doing It would be
natural to suppose that they were en
gaged in concocting something good to
eat. In the process of recasting the
Ingots their fineness is often changed.
being either Improved or debased,
whichever best suits the interests of
the shop. Bankers and money chang
ers ore able to determine the quality
of the silver by the sense of touch.
The sellers or depositors are always
at tbelr mercy and mt:st often submit
to the operation of having their silver
discounted on account of "bad touch."
In the interior of China small pur
chases are made with copper coles
with square holes In the center. These
are called "cosh" and ore threaded on
strings so tbnt tbey may be carried
across one's shoulder or on a pole. A
string of 1.600 of these cash is worth
about 50 cent In onr money. Some
times bits of silver are chipped from
the silver shoes and nsed for small
purchase". 'When tmTelinjr In the in
terior one must take with him a larxe
amount cf silver shoes, exchanging '
tbem for strings of cash at the various
shops.. Tha money changers have two
sots of scales, one to be nsed in the
purchase of sCTer and the other in the
selling of It
In an attempt some years ago is in
troduce a currency based on western
models the Chinese government pur
chased and put into circulation several
million Mexican dollars. The people
took to the new coins and called for
more. The provincial governments
then set up mints and began to coin
Chinese dollars of approximately tho
same weight and fineness as the Mexi
can dollars. They also coined an enor
mous amount of subsidiary items in
the shape of small silver coins and
Soon It was discovered that the flew"
currency was as unstable as the old.
The value of the dollar in relation to
the subsidiary coinage varied from day
to day. The cent was never worth the
hundredth part of a dollar. Some-days
110 cents were required to make up
$1. and on other days it took 1"0 cents.
Similarly the value of the dollar as
compared with the tael was continual
ly fluctuating. Sometimes $100 would,
bring 70 taels ajid at. other times only
03. It was sickening to the people,
but very profitable to the money
