THE TOPEKA DAILY STATE JOURNAL WEDNESDAY EVENING, MAY 22, 1907.
9 TALKS OF KANSAS Charles S. Treat, U. S. Treas urer, at Auditorium. Precedes His Talk on the Treas ury WithComplimentary Words. HE LIKES TOPEKA, Impressed With Its Beauty and ActiTity. Comments on the Kansas Pros perity Figures. Charles S. Treat, treasurer of the United States, delivered an adddress, "Glimpses of the United States Treas ury." at the Auditorium last nlgnt to a large audience which began arriving at 8 o'clock and straggled in for an hour. Prior to the appearance of the speaker a number of selections on me pipe organ were given by W. F. Koehr, and a solo rendered by Miss May Red dick. Following the address Mar shall's band gave a short concert. Am a peroration Mr. Treat paid a high compliment to Topeka and Kan sas in general and said: "I am here tonight at the Invitation of the bank ers' association of your glorious state to talk of 'Glimpses of the United States Treasury,' but I would rather talk of Kansas and her people, many of whom I have met. and of the great natural resources which I have seen for the first time. ' "It is the glimpses of your state ana beautiful city in which I am the most interested at this time and the people and their way of transacting business. I have read and known of Kansas and its splendid resources but never before have I appreciated them as I do at this time. Your people seem so broad-gauged and capable and so alive to the interests of themselves and the state alike. "Topeka is a beautiful city, so charmingly located and so healthful and Inviting alike to the natives of the state and strangers. I am impressed with its activities in worldly affairs and the proud honor it bears of being the capital city of the glorious state of Kansas. It is not only a great state, but its memories are interlaced with the stirring scenes of the days when i -, , .-a ft t stake ana tne acts of her sons entitles the name of Kansas to a place in the diadem of tne crown of liberty. "Nor does Kansas excel alone in her roster of valiant sons who defended her fair name during these stirring times, for the list would not be com plete unless inscribed on the scroll were the names of her heroes, heroines, statesmen and educators who have aaaea lusier w tuc IV. "When one meets a native of the state he wonders what will come next for Kansas is not living in the past but in the present and the future which it has. Great as are the accumulations of the money in the United States treasury I was deeply impressed with the figures given out this afternoon by the president of the Bankers' associa tion when he spoke of the resources of the state and said the products of tlut farms and the live stock produc tions of one year amounted to 424 mil lions of dollars or double what it was ten years ago. "Those to me are mighty figures and speak volumes for the undeveloped re sources of the state and the possibili ties of the future. Then there are the mineral products and the output of your factories and the incidentals which have not been included in the list which has made this immense sum of money. "Taking these figures and consider ing the resources of the state many of which are undeveloped and in their in fancy it seems to me that Kansas owns more than her share of the 1260 mil lions of dollars which I found in the treasury of the United States when I took possession of the money of the government. "I most thoroughly enjoyed my visit to your magnificent state house and the pleasure of meeting the governor of so great a state and not among the least of my pleasures was the meeting of your secretary of agriculture, Mr. Coburn, of whom I have read so much and known so little personally. , He is a prince of mankind and I would have liked to have spent hours in chatting with him of the state which is so near and dear to his heart. "His devotion to the office has earn ed for him the title which is one of the grandest which could have been conferred upon him by an admiring people. He has met the old time re quisite of fame as recorded in the scriptures and has made two blades of grass grow where but one grew be fore." I "He has not only caused an ear of corn to grow to its greatest splendor, but if the one which I saw in the governor's room Is to be taken as a sample, had he lived in olden times he would have excited the envy of kings. I have seen but glimpses of the possibilities of your great state, but perhaps I am wearying you for you are familiar with these things which have so impressed me. "I am impressed with the absence of poverty and the fact that there are dozens of counties in your state where the poor house is an unknown feature. ' I am sorry that I cannot see more of you in your comfortable homes which are the envy of visitors from the east ern sections of the United States, and fain would I linger within the borders of your state to feast my eyes and soul on the good things I have seen about me. "Kansas and her schools have become proverbial as have your churches and the high moral atmosphere of the state where the youth of the land may grow to manhood without the contaminating surroundings so common in other states. I cannot pay to Kansas the tribute which is Justly due her, but I would be manifestly unjust if I did not refer to the record for bravery and patriotism so well earned and Justly due. "Your efforts to contribute to the patriotic deeds whether in the fields of the south, or later on the soil of Cuba, or in the far oft isles of the Philip pines struck me in mute majesty as I gazed on the tattered standards which chronicle the magnificent service of the Twenty-third Kansas and stand today as mute monuments in the archives of your state capitol. "Grand as are all of your achieve ments, there is nothing which reflects such honor pon you as your primal desire to build human character, to serve the state, the family and your God. That should make of Kansas the true home; the ideal of what a free re public should be. "But I must return from the glimpses of Kansas to those of the United States treasury, though I would rather dwell upon those of the former " continued the speaker. Glimpse of Treasury. "JUlde from the attraction that the people have to visit the congress in session at the capitol, .and seeing there in human action the. statesmen of whom they have heard so much, and whose careers as lawmakers, are so bound up in the progress and welfare of the na tion, there also is a large and absorb ing curiosity to visit the treasury, around which, in their minds, they have woven such artistic dreams of enor mous accumulations of money. "The treasury building is one of Im mense proportions, constructed of fine granite, surrounded by - great columns of stone reaching irom the first to tne third story, it is regarded as-, a very fine specimen of architecture in pro portno and perspective, and from ev ery point of view it is a building of great ma-Blvenesa and architectural beauty. "This department vies with the White House v in its interest in attracting statesmen, politicians, men .of affairs and tourists. It is well known what a mysterious power there is in money, It seems to pervade the mind of every human being, whether that money is represented by wampum, silver, goid, or paper. ...,: "The walls of the interior are adorn ed with the pictures of many of the former treasurers, conspicuous among which are-the following: Michael Hil-legas,- first treasurer of the United States under the Constitution, mr. Hllleeras served as treasurer from July 9, 1775, to September 11, 1789. tie was born in I'nHadeinnia m lias. jnis dress in the picture is in the type of the Continental statesmen of that era. At my suggestion the face of this pat riot and faithful officer will pecome familiar to the American people, when the new ten dollar gold certificate authorized by congress is issued, adorned by his vignette. "Bv the first of July next the treas ury will begin to distribute the ten dollar gold certificates and five dollar United States notes. This increase of the resources for the issue of the smaller denominations of United States paper currency, properly sup- nlemented by the issue of live aonar national bank notes, to the full limit allowed under the law, will enable the treasury to respond to the needs of business for years to come. "The changes in general that win be effected will be as follows: The United States notes of all denomina tions, when redemmed, will be re issued in five dollar notes; gold cer tificates of the denominations of ten dollars will be issued for deposits of srold coin: and silver certificates of the denominations of five dollars and above, when redeemed, will be re issued in one and two dollar certifi cates. In the distribution of denomi nations the ten dollar gold certificates. will replace the ten dollar United States "notes, and the five dollar sil ver certificates will be changed into one and two dollar certificates. "We are well aware that business interests are growing with remark able strides, demanding larger and more responsive banking facilities, and the requirement for additional circulating medium has increased to $34.16 on April 30, 1907, as against $22.87 tier capita, at the beginning of the McKinley administration in 1897. When we reflect that in . 1800 the per capita was only $4.99, we can see at a glance the enormous accumulation of our wealth in currency in the past hundred years." TAX FIGURES GIVEN OUT.
