SENATOR 111h1.'s silver bill is a good deal of a juggle, but his bill for the re seal of the federal election law is all ,right and is a move in the right direc 'tbiu. The federal election law must go. . Ir people wore afraid of the deprecia tlon of silver, as it3 opponents affirm, they would not hoard it as they are do ing. The fact that they put away gold, i.lver or bank notes indifferently dis proves the theory that they are fright ened over depreciated money. Ir you want to be convinced that h.bere will be no unconditional repeal of 'the.Shermasn act, read the New York '.apers. They have ceased to ridicule the silver men of the west and are now throwing clubs and stones at members of the United States senate who decline to commit themselves to the single standard theory. The fight for repeal is lost. THE MIissoulian knows what it is talking about when it says: "These are times when men should pull together. T'his depression cannot last forever. this is too great a country; it has too many and diversified interests to go down and stay down. Montana's place Is at the top; she is going to climb there and if pulled down a thousand times when she nears the pinnacle is going to get there at last." She isn't going to 'get there last but first. TeinE Ion. Charles A. Dann, of the New York Sun, is seventy-five years young this week. Hie starts for the sev enty-sixth milestone with a robust frame and undimmed mind, and chock full of a cheery philosophy that prom fees to carry him on to the century mark, at which time we propose to give the great exponent of American jour iialism a bigger jubilee than Christo npher Columbus ever dreamed of. Young fellow, here's looking at youl THE friends of silver are much better organized in the senate than in the house of representatives. " In the latter body the silver men appear to be split up into little factions. Some of them favor free coinage at a ratio of sixteen to one; others would accept seventeen, eighteen or twenty to one. Some of those who believe the ratio should be sixteen to one will not vote for any other ratio, they say. In this lack of under standing and unity there is danger. It looks as though the repealing act would pass the house and that no sub stitute would ibe agreed upon in that body for the present. The hope for sil ver lies with the senate. IBY a majority of one the Sherman not repeal measure was reported from the Senate finance committee yesterday. Four of the six members favoring repeal are republicans the other tao demo crate. The live members of the corn miittee who stuood by silver are all denm ocrats, save Senator Jones, of Nevada. The support of Senator Voorhees was secured for repeal by coupling with the measure a declaration that the United States believed in a bimetallic standard to be secured by international agree mont. This declaration for bimetal lism coupled with the repealing act, and unaccompanied by any definite proposition to coin silver at all, is an I absurdity on its face, mere claptrap to catch votes. I I~,~NsA) of beinvg dig'tatle to by Eng land on every financial prolpsition, let us turn nbou.t and do a little dictating ourselves. In hier dealings with her colonies Englandl uses more slver tthan will ever h. e rined in th.eUiited 8tates Naturally she wants to buy this silver as cheaply as poss!ble. Eminent lrit Ish authoritics have asserted that if the United States completely dmiionotiz7,i the white metal, silver would go to thirty cents In ounce. Per con tro, with free coi.ago in America, IEnng.;:n would have to settle with Inlia ail other depenlenciin in lhgli-pricetd l ver. fouiid comllliercial EOsOe dicli.ate that we should make her pay as imuch as possible for the silver she will he compelled to buy. Ac(uonoIeI, to the statement of tih comiptroller of the curroncy published yesterday, individual depositors hanive drawn from the national banks leotvwemn May 4 and ,July 12, nearly two hundredi millions of dollars. It is safe to as.sume: that as much llore was drawnl froml state, savings and oLther banks. 'lThis money has not gone out of the United SStates; it aas 'not been permanently I lost. It is being hidden by the people until the financial soare 1s over, By and by, as people recover from a eilr fright, the money will get btok ita the channels of business from whbih it was was withdrawn. Until such time comes a there can be no revival of prosperity that will be laseting. The people who created this money famine have its ter. mination in their own hands. WRITRIt VEI$ttrr BANKRRS A writer on finance, ma the New York Sun, who Is presumably neither a banker o nor the creditor of a bank, declares dog imntically that "a more serious cause for h anxiety is the absence as yet of the Smanifestation of anything like com r manding financial ability either at the capital of the nation or in this metropo Ha. tiere in New York we have many excellent bankers and bank officers, but not one of them is a recognized author ity on any financial subjects but those which directly concern the details of the banking business. During the pres ant crisis most of them have shown great tact and skill in conducting the affairs of their institutions and unques tionably their good management has mitigated the severest features of the monetary stringency. They were wise enough to stand by one another in the issue of clearing house certificates, but e not wise enough to give the same united support to the rest of the country. Worst of all, by obstinately clinging to their reserves, they have occasioned a a scarcity of currency most injurious to every one engaged in business." * From the point of view of a man in ! the top story of a tall newspaper office, there may be no able financiers either at the national capital or in the great banking houises of New York city. But we incline to the opinion that the men who have business relations with the Gotham banks, and the people who judge of ability by results already achieved, will disagree with "Matthew Marshall," the Sun's writer. But the bankers are abundantly able to take care of themselves. It is to the last sentence in the Sun's articie that we take particular exception. There In exist already temptations enough to reckless banking, and that a great news pnaer should publicly encourage that Ci sort of business is reprehensible in the g extreme, and had the New York banks Ti acted on the line suggested by the Sun in not one of them would be doing busi- V' ness to-day. Only by virtue of the fact that the New York banks clung tenaci ously to their reserves, and when the stringency set in augmented them by every legitimate means in their power have they been enabled to keep their doors open and prevent a panic that would have wrecked a majority of the legitimate business concerns of the United States. Their service to the ppblic has boon inestimable, and they have been enabled to render that ser vice by the exercise of the most con servative methods of banking. And what is true of New York banks is true in lescr degree of banks all over the C country. O The fact that London banks do a C larger business on a smaller reserve than these of New York is no argument dt that their methods could be.employed Bi on this side of the ocean with safety. cl London is a much more distinctly finan cial center than New York, and in addi- ac tion is but a few hours journey removed from several other great financial cen ters to whom it can confidently appeal for aid in time of need. The money of - this continent is widely distributed and its concentration at any one place on short notice is a matter of impossibility. The New York banks deal with con ditions; the writer in the Sun deals with a theory. The solvency of the banks is sullioient reply to the writer's ,r aspersions unon the financiers of the cre metropolis, on. '!. Peter's Cehoul. Fall term begins Sept. 11, 1898.
