THE BUTTE INTER MOUNTAIN
VOL XXII NO. 225 BUTTE, MONTANA, SATURD4Y EVENING, DECEMBER 6, 190o. PRICE FIVE CENTS WHAT IS NEEDED TO MAKE OUR MONEY SYSTEM RIGHT Hugh H. Hanna Gives His Views on Panacea for Monetary Ills. ELEMENT OF ELASTICITY SHOULD BE INTRODUCED Public Mind Is Prepared for as Perfect a Gold Standard as Can Be Provided -More Stable Parity Between Gold and Silver Should Be Maintained President and Secretary of Treasury Are Hard at Work on the Reforms. sY ASSOCIATED PRsS.S. Indianapolis, Dec. 6.-"\W hat further steps should be taken at this time for the betterment of our monetary system," Mr. Hugh H. Hanna was asked today. Mr. Hanna was chairman of the execu tive committee of 15 created by the na tional monetary conference held at Indian apolis in 1897; ever since he has been ac tive pressing the demands of financial re formers. "First," he replied, "our gold standard law of 900oo should be strengthened by ma chinery for maintaining parity between gold and silver. The public inlld is pre pared for as perfect a gold standard as can be established. A law providing for the payment of gold for silver at the treasury on demand is the one remaining step ncces sary to secure absolute parity of all our moneys. Both the ()verstreet bill and the Hill bill, introduced in the last session, mlake full and wise provision. ELEMENT OF ELASTICITY SHOULD BE PROVIDED "Second, an element of elasticity in our national bank currency should be provided. A small step, equal in amount to say to per cent of the capital of the bank, is sufficient for demonstration of ethcicncy and safety. If its desirability is proved, gradual in crease within a term of years, to say. 50 per cent of the amount of the capital, with full and unquestioned provisiol for the re demption of notes of insolvellt banks, as alfforded in the l.overing and other bills, is the other step immediately necessary. The general subject appears complex and our people are, therefore, disinclined to study it. "The principles are simple. The humble ,t citizen is a perfection of money laws. "Only absolute assurance of parity will make New York bill of exchange as ac ceptable in the commerce of the world, as a bill of exchange on London. ASSURED PARITY WILL STRENGTHEN INDUSTRIES "Assured parity of the metallic curren cies and scientific provision for elastic bank currency without risk of redemption will not only strengthen the domestic com mercial interests, but will do more to make possible the sale of products of American labor than any other one act of legisla tion. "The president, secretary of the treasury and the comptroller of the currency should also courageously at this time advocate such legislation as indicates the growth of public opinion favorable to laws in the in terest of all our people, without preference, the importance of which should arouse the business men of the country to the deter mined, timely supplort of the effort being made to secure congressional action." GIRLS WHO WANT I WORK IN LIBRARY SCORE OF THEM TAKING THE EX AMINATION AT HIGH SCHOOL THIS AFTERNOON. Librarian J. R. Russell is conducting the examination of the applicants for the posi tions of assistant librarians this atternoon at the high school building. Fully a score of young ladies are writing. From this number AMr. Russell will select six who have won the highest markings and these will be given an opportunity of getting practical experience by working in the li brary. The young lady who has the highest markings will have an opportunity to ill the first vacancy. 'I he assistant librarians at the Butte library get $84.45 a month. The questions asked the candidates are varied and cover broad enough scope to test fully the mental powers of the appli cant. History, literature and current events are the principal topics. One must have a broad speaking acquaintance with history and be a veritable fountain of wisdom to successfully fill the position of assistant librarian, "Then after one learns all about books and authors, there is much room for improvement by becoming conversant with the technical part of the work, such as cataloging and ticketing the books on the shelves. Of a truth, the assistant libra rian has no sinecure. The position at the Butte library is much sought after by young ladies, and no won der when one stops to think that during the past few years no fewer than hve wed dings have taken place, with assistant li brarians playing the leading role.

It will then be seent to Wash ingtonl, where the treaty will be signed by Secretary Hlay and the Cuban minis ter, Quesada. After the conifirmation by the United States senate I will send the treaty to the Culiban senate for approval. I shall not send it to the house of repre sentatives because the executive has, with the approval of the senate, the right, ac cording to the constitution, to make a treaty which does not affect the tariff. "This agreement provides for certain reductions in the duties on imports from the United States, but the tariff on those articles is not changed. After the ap proval of the treaty I intend to send a message to the house and senate, asking for a revision of the tariff, in order to keep up the revenues, which will necese sarily be lessened by the treaty." The senatot who supports the adminis tration gives his opinion that the reci procity agreement must be approved by the house of representatives. 'I he mat. ter of issuing a loan of $35,o0o,oto is again being taken up in the senate.
