and that i,ow Alder's friend#

The Dublic is f*milhr with ths reso
lotions introduced |in Congress ciliing
for papers 3nd facts in reference to
the Treasurer's dealings with ccrtain
banks, especially the National City
Bank, of New York. The Indianapolis
Sentinel gives the circnmsiancee of
the sale of the old cn3tom-bou?e in
Naw York:
"This sale was made uoa>r a special
act of Congress, which provided that
the Government should continue to
ociupy it as a tenant, and pay the
purchaser a rental equal to 4 per cent
of the purchase price. The ?*'e was
for $3,265,000. 'ihe president of the
National City Baok, it is said, wmt to
"Washington with 54 o.?niSed check for
$3,225,350 011 his oit:j bxnk, which
\TtiS presented to Secrerarv Gage, and
immediately returned by him for deposit
in the National City Bank. By
tbis pavmsnt of all but $40,000 vt the
purchase-money the h ink became the
owner of thebuildiug,aud the Government
becomes its tenant at $130,000 a
vear. The bank has in fact never
paid out a cert. Al: of its money is
in its vaults for use, and has been all
tbe time. And altbo tbe sale i< actually
made tbe deeds bare not been
- passed?theoretically because of tbe
$40,000 sri!l unpaid?but evideutly for
tbe purpose of keeping the property in
the uame of the federal Goverament,
and thereby exempting it from local
tax tion. This is a most pxtraordinaiy
transaction throughout."
- Many of the Democratic papers bar?
been citing tbe law on the Secretary
upon this state of fact*. For instance,
tbe New Ysrk World calls his atteng?_.
tion to the Revised Statutes of the
United States wherein it is provided
that "all proceeds of sales of old material,
condemned stores, supplies, or
other property of auy kind shall be
gbfc- deposited and covered iato the treasnrv
as miB'ellanPdtis receiots. * * *
1 ,
ana shall cot be withdrawn or applied
except in conetqueiice of a subsequent
appropriation made by law," and
special attention :s called- to the act
|| authorizing the sale of the New York
cu*toin-hou$e by which it is stipulated
tha* "the proceeds or sale" shall be
in the Usited States Treasury,
and "at as early a date as posii"
? i-LI. ?
Die." iixny rspui&oie uewayayer#
t charge tbat Mr. Gage is really guilty
B?". " of embezzlement on accoant of bis
failure to deposit the proceeds of sale
and the law is quoted to this effect,
and the resignation of the Secretary of
the Treasury is demanded,
p Perhaps the most going comment is
U- made by the Springfield Republican.
It seema that the Republican has been
senrching the Congressional Recoad,
jp&. and has ruo across some of President
v?v McKinley's speeches while a member
B of Congress. It appears that wbi'e
Wiiidom wss Secretary of the Treasury
unc^er Cleveland, he increased the deposits
in banks from ?20,000,000 to
nearly $62,000,000, and in this connection
what iir. McKinley as then a
member of Congte?8 had to say is es
I pec ally interesting, for Secretary
Gage is reported to h?.ve said that nis
action i* endorsed by the President
and the cabine?. The Republican re
pro.luces from the Congressional
Record of February 29, 1899, the following
froin Mr. iicKinley's speech:
"When we adjourned we left him
(Secretary Fairchild) full power to
pav it (the surplus) out, and I wish
anrrn friend of the Administration
would explain why be did not do it in
tbe only {straightforward, logical, bu*iI
aess-like way-that is, by paying the
debts of the Government and saving
1- the interest charge, which resia so
| heiviijr on the people. Instead of
doing tha\ the Administration prefers
another way. Ib prefers to nsethc:
banks as a means of potting it in cirsalation.
* *
"Nearly $59,000,000, a* I uoderK
stand, of tbe surplus money that ought
to b-3 in tbe treasury to-day, tbe Secretary
having refused to pay it out to
a Government creditors, is now ou:
among tbe banks, held by them, they j
jiving to the Government bocds as j
gecnrity for tbe deposit; and tbey are j
getiing it without interest. They have j
the surplus maney of the treasury in j
their own hand#, and they collect ih i
accruing interest oa the Government j
bonds which tbey have deposited as |
aecnrity, wheo, if the Administration '
had used the $59,000,000 and bought a j
I corresponding amount of bonds with j
" that ?nm, those bonds would have been j
canceled, and the ioterest on that *um j
would have been stopped. And I ;
charge here to-day thdt the President i
?8^ of tho United S.'ates and hi3 Admiais-'
tratLn are solely responsible for what-1
B ever congested condition we have in j
the treasury, and whatever alarm pre- j
I rails about the fluancea 01 tne conn-;
try. E7ery dollar of it would have
paid a dollar of the Government debts ;
if the Secretary had wisely exercised |
th8 discretion given him by law. What j
does a man do Tvho h&s got a surplus j
balance in toe banka and has outsiar.d- j
ing debts bearing interest? He calls in j
the evidences of those debts and j
pays them off with his surplus deposit j

have done; and we would have had
$50,000,000 les? of ir>tere3t-b~ rin?
bonds in circulation today jf the
President bad followed the way blnz d j
for r-iin by the Republican party."
"When the Republican n?;iouaI cnu- j
veution assembled, soon afterward," j
8ay? The Republican, "Mr. SIcKisl^y,
as ch&irmm of the c>iym;me ?n res ile
Iution3, >aw to it tb*t a special d^nunciati>;?
was written into ihep&tform
of 4tne Democratic policy of loaning
the Govern men t'? money, without interest,
to pet banks/" The Republican
farther comments:
"It i3 a cnrioai tarn which tiae ha?
brought, that the Adrair;j-!rvi.>n of
William McKiaJey himself sh mid be
pawning this 'Democratic policy,' instead
of 'the way blazed t?.j him by
the Republican party,' and 10 a ieDgtb
which the Cleveland ^Administration
never ventured to go. * * * The
President plainly owes an apology to
Cleveland and Fairchild."
A great many people get i Mto trouble
by talkingtoo much, and Mr. McKialey
is one of these unfortunate people.

I am in hopee that the people will

will act accordingly. Only
think that the Tquor traffic ha3 been

annually, and it is stated that there has
mors deaths from the stronsr

th-it that I hope he vrill overcome the
B^e.s, or I think the British have as

tLey ought to ha7e. I note this only
to show that that eminent officer favors j
prohibition7!} cause. The Attorney j
General's report for 1S97 sa\s: ''There
