Louisville Courier Journal: Ex
President Harrison breaks his silence
long enough to join in the republican
charge that the democrats are re
sponsible for the present financial
condition of the country, urging in
support of this that the democrats
helped to pass the Sherman act. Now
that Mr. Harrison as ex-president is
talking against that act, which he
carefully refrained from doing as
president, when his words might
have had some weight, would he
mind enlightening the benighted as
to the names of the democrats who
voted for the Sherman act?
Representative Holmes, whose
ideas on economy in administering
the government are widely known,
pays nothing would be more condu
cive to economy than the imposition
of and income tax by congress.
Speaking on the subject last week,
he said: "The possibilities for
wealth in the United States are be
yond all calculation. They are enor
mous. If we tried to live up to
them in our public expense we would
inaugurate an era of extravagance in
the midst of which free institutions
could not live, ltehind congress is
the wealthier class of citizens. It is
to their interest that the expendi
tures of the government should be
lavish. They are the gainers by
building contracts, by river and har
bor contracts, and so on. You see
plenty of lobbies of rich men or their
representatives here at each sess'on
of congress. You never see a lobby
of poor men. You may not know it.
but there is not an evening that a
member of congress cannot dine at
one of the clubs in this city. The
men who support these clubs are not
men who contribute their fair share
to the support of the government.
They are the people who profit by
the expenditure of large sums of
public money. That is the strong
est argument, I tEink, in favor of
the establishment of an income tax.
If we make heavy appropriations
now, the weight of them falls with
the greatest force on the poor. If
the government was supported by an
income tax, these same puople who
are here urging us to spend money
now, would be here in the same force
urging us to economize. Their in
terests then would be in economy."
This argument may be new to many,
but it is none the less interesting on
The Sherman Silver Law.
Here is the Sherman bill of which
so much has boerr-sald of late, and
which is held responsible for the
present bad state of finances.
The house had passed early in
June, 18'JO, a bill directing the pur
chase of silver bullion and the issue
of treasury notes thereon prepared
by Mr. Windon. then secretary of
the treasury. The senate rejected
important clauses of the house bill
and passed what was known as the
senate bill. The house rejected all
the senate amendments except one
and a conference committee was
appointed to prepare a compromise
bill. . '
On July 7, 1890. a committee of
conference, consisting of Senators
Sherman, Jones of Nevada, Vest of
Missouri, and Harris, and Kepresen
tatives Conger, Walker of Massa
chusetts, and ISlanu (Messrs. est
and Bland .not signing the report) re
ported an agreement as follows:
. Be it enacted, etc.. That the secre
tary of the treasury is hereby direct
ed to purchase from time to time sil
ver bullion to the amount of 4,600,
000 ounces, or eo much thereof as

the" market price thereof, not exceed
ing f 1 for 371.25 grains of pure sil
ver, and to issue in payment ,for
such purchases of silver bnllion
treasury notes of the United States;
to lie prepared by the secretary of
the treasury in "such form and of
such denominations, not less thsyi $ 1
nor more than $1,000. as he may pre

into effect the provisions of this act
is hereby appropriated out of any
money in the treasury not otherwise
'Sec. 2. That the treasury notes
issued in icconlance with the provi
sions of this act shall be redeemable
on deman I in coin in the treasury of
the United States or at the office of
any assistant treasurer of the United
States, an 1 when so redeemed may
be reissued; but no greater or less
amount of notes shall be outstanding
at any time than the cost of silver
bullion aid the standard dollars
coined therefrom then held in the
treasury purchased by such notes;
and such treasury notes shall be a
legal tender in payment of all debts,
public and private, except where
otherwise expressly stipulated in the
contract. i;nu shall be receivable for
customs, "axes and all public dues,
and when so received may be reis
sued, and such notes when held bv
any national banking association maV
be counted as a part of its lawful re
serve. Tl at upon the demand of the
holder of my of the treasury notes
herein provided for the secretary of
the treasury shall under such regula
tions as he may prescribe, redeem
such notes in gold or silver coin at
his discretion, it being the estab
lished poli-y of the United States to
maintain tie two metals on a parity
with each other upon the present le
gal ratio o- such ratio as may be pro
vided by law.
Sec. 3. That the secretary of the
treasury shall each month coin 2.OO0-.
000 ounces of the silver bullion pur

act into standard silver dollars until

lion pnrchi.sed under the provisions
of this act :s much as may be neces
sary to provide for the redemption of
the treasu-y notes herein provided
for, and an v gain or seigniorage aris
ing from such coinage shall be ac
counted foi anil paid into the treas
ury. Sec. 4. That the silver bullion
purchased under the provisions of
this act shall be subject to the re
quirements of existiug laws and the
regulations of the mint service gov
erning the methods of determining
the amount of pure 'silver contained
ami the annunt of deductions, if any,
to be made.
Sec. 5. That so much of the act
of Feb. 28, 178, entitled 'An act to
authorize the coinage of the stand
ard silver dollar and to restore its
legal tender- character,1 as requires
the menthly purchase and coinage of
the same inta silver dollars of not
less than t2.00ii.000. nor more than
t4. OOO.ooO worth of silver bullion is
'Sec. 6. That upon the passage
of this act the balances standing with
the treasurer of the United States to
the respective credit of national
banks for deposits made to redeem
the circulating notes of such banks,
and all deposits thereafter received
for like purpose, shall be covered
into the tres.sury as a miscellaneous
receipt, ant the treasurer of the
United Stati-s shall redeem from the
general cash in the treasury the cir
culating noi es of said banks which
my come into his possion subject to
redemption; and upon the certificate
of the comptroller of the currency
that such notes have leen received
by him and that they have been de
stroyed and that no new notes will
be issued in their plpce, reimburse
ment of their amount shall be made
to the treasurer under such regula
tions as the secretary of the treasury
may prescribe, from an appropria
tion hereby t reated, to be known as
national bank notes, redemption ac
count, but t;ie provisions of this act
shall not apply to the deposits re
ceived under section 3, of the act of
June 20, 171, requiring every na
tional bank to keep in lawful money
with the treasurer of the United
States a sum equal to 5 jer cent of
its circulation, to be held and used

notes; and tl e balance remaining of
the deposits so covered shall, at the
close of each month, be reported on
the monthly public debt statement
as debt of th! United States, bearing
"See. 7. That this act shall take
effect 30 day- from and after its passage."1
