Necessity What Customs Duties Are
Paid With A Bill to Prohibit Immigra

the Date of Meeting of Congress Con
trol of the Senate Uncertain Civil Ser
vice Reform Capital City Kewa Items.
Washingtou, Dee. On July 30 last
ihc senate passed a resolution proposed by
Stewart of Nevada, calling on the secretary
if the treasury for answers to six question
relating to tbe finances and financial policy
ot the government. The answer of the sec
retary was laid before the senate yesterday
In a long document, which was ordered to
be printed. The secretary says it is impos
sible to classify the kinds of money : in
which internal revenne taxes are paid. Of
customs dues collected in the year ended
June 30, 1892, $219,584(0.1 of 1 percent)
were paid in national bank notes: tfll.TOl,
702 (34.9 per cent ), in United Stateajiotes;
137,868,528 (21.4 per cent.), in treasury notes
of 1890; 138,498,986 (20.7 per cent.), in gold
certificates; 137,935,664 (15.8 per cent), in
silver certificates; fll,488,537 (6.5 per cent.),
in gold coin; $1,038,232 (0.8 of 1 percent.), in
standard silver dollars, and $63,042 in sub
Remarks as to Guld Coin. ,
On July 31. 1892, there were in the United
States treasury $170,6S2,623 gold coin and
$17,738,500 gold certificates. At the date
nearest to that of the passage of the resolu
tion the national banks held $96,723,083 in
gold coin and $85,530,100 in gold certifi
cates, leaving only $8,899,370 gold coin as
the ascertained holdings of other banking
institutions. The total amount of sold
coin in this country on July 81, 1892, as es
timated by the director of the mint, was
$581,12r,983. No mention is made of gold
Two Questions Unanswered.
The amount of gold derived from the sale
of bonds for redemption purposes, which
remained in the treasury July 31, was $48,
876,649, but the amount available for tbe
redemption of the public debt was $110,444,
891, greater by $18,444,391 than the amount
originally obtained from the sale of bonds
for redemption purposes. Two other ques
tions were asked the secretary in the reso
lution, to which he says no answer that
would be conclusive or definite can be
given. In submitting the following Secre
tary Foster savs they express only his pres
ent personal view.
Conditions of a Permanent Ratio,
9n my judgment." he says, "it is impossi
ble to establish any ratio whatever be
tween gold and silver which would perma
nently or for any length of - time preserve
substantial equivalency between the coins
of the two metals, except on one of the fol
"1. It is probable that a limitation or
suspension of the coinage of silver in the
Unitl States might accomplish this pur
pase. "2. The adoption by the United States
and the principal countries of Kurope of a
monetary conviction similar to that of the
Latin Union before the countries com
posinpc it limited the coinage of silver.
Foreign Co-operation Neeessary.
"I am of the opinion that the bi-metallic
system adopted by the United States, un
der the administration of President Wash
ington, by the law of April 2, 1792, and re
adjusted and maintained under adminis
tration of President Jackson by the law of
June 28, ISM, and Jan. 18, 1S37, cannot
again, without the co-operation of the
principal countries of Europe, be estab
lished in this country on a stable basis,

agents down their throats, thereby sending
