B' J " Conformable to tho spirit of this declaration, !' tho Treasury Department has treated gold and 19 ellrer coins and thu paper representative of both J If as of equal dignity and value in all Its opera- is M tions. In tbo collections of Its revenues, whether J . '( lnthcformofcxclsotnxcsorofcustomsducs.lt H ) ! has mado discrimination against neither, while H lit upon the other hand It has held Itself ready to H U pay to tho oubllo creditor whichever of tho two J ll1,.' ho might chooso to rccetvo as tho more de- B ll slrable to him. Kren further than this. It has J tf j declared Itself ready, whenever necessary to the HJ B; j maintenance of this parity, to exchange on even B I terms, at tho pleasure of tho holder, cither form Ej'l (J of the metallic money for tho othor. These prac- K 9 tlcal oncratlons and declarations were neccs- W" Jj I iary, and they have operated to keep In concur- Kl jl rent circulation, on terms of equality, tho two Tji kinds of metallic money, notwithstanding tho I -1 1 Tarying but never censing disparity between K X the natural or commercial valuo of tho one as ' compared with the other. IJ "Kovcrtheless, It must bo recognized thnt this II undertaking Involves a largo financial responsl ' bllity and requires proper nnd adequato leglsla f tlve provisions for its continued exercise. In f j Its Dnal definition of Government responsibility ! It means that. In addition to its liabilities for t I' i redemption In gold on demand of S3 16,000,000 ' of legal tender notes, tho Government must also I hold itself In readiness to redeem In like man- , I ncr 114,000,000 of tho Trensury notes of 1990 j and to maintain tho free lntcrchncgcabillty j j through Its Treasury with gold for any pnrt or all , fi i of $4 10,000.000 In silver now current with our jk peoDle. Tho aggregato total of these liabilities ' (IV amounts to $900 000.000. It Is not by this in- 'ill tended to convey the idea that tho Government I A I will ever bo called upon to pay at any one time, J ' or cven "" ono PCf'od of time, however pro- Jl I traded, tho total of liability thus shown. It Is, I , however. Indisncnsablo that tho Troasurr been- m dowcdwlth tho power and resources ample to meet all claimants that may como with margin 3 fl sufllclcnt to give full nssuranco to all that do S l not como that Its power for continuance Is M unimpaired. Tbo statement that tbo tra- i ditionnl ono hundred millions of gold reserve Is Insulllclcnt for theso purposes need not bo sup 1 ported b argument. It is manifest that the n i recognized Inadequacy of that amount lms on 3 i more tlun ono occasion brought fear and de- ti j rungement to all intercuts Industrial, com- if ,i i mcrcinl, and flnnnclnl. The losses suffered by ll I tho body politic through these derangements, f! H hiving their origin in tho state of tho public K&vi I Treasury, cannot, bo named. It Is not beyond B ll ' "lc "1"'1 of rrasonablo cstimato to say that the B"" jl total of such losses otceeds tho total of tho R jl I demand liabilities of tho Treasury as abovo set fi y forth.

It removes an urn blgulty from our contract obligations, an nnibigiiitv which nfietts iinfnvornlily tbo Gov eminent i rcriil, Tho word 'colli, now used lo express thu obligation In tho public debt, is an ninblgiious word. It Is no doubt understood by tbo moro discriminating nubile i rcdltor In mean gold coin, nnd tho solemn nt t nf Congress pledg ing the mnlntcnnnco of silver coin upon n tmrlty with gold coin makes It Impossible to construe tho word 'con' as therein used Ionium any thing othor than gold or Its full equivalent. nt, ns tills Is a conclusion nf logic rntlicr than nclinrstatiiiiinlot fact, the simpler mid mure humble Investors, or would bo lnvistors, In tbo public debt aro confused and doubtful.nnd Iho puhlloerodit is weaker therefor.

"If thl-objtctlon bo raised It loses nil force when wo consider tbo onl) two methods bv which tho gold and silver tolns now in tontnr rent uso wltli iiscnn bo so continued as to main tain tho 'parity In tho value of tho two coins, and the equal power of every dol lar nt nil times in tbo markets, mid in tho pajinclit of ill 'Us.' Uno ot tluso methods is familiar to us since It has been tn dally uso In our llnamlal svstom slnco 1870. 'I be other met hod would consist In pond aanclng tho coinngo value of stlvir.by inter national agrciment or otherwise, ns to lend a, natural parity between tho two, so that tho present artificial method could bo sifclr aban doned. There Is nothing in tho proposition now under consideration to interfere with tbo pur posu to secure nu inauguration of tho latter method. It must, however, be admitted to be a measure which, if ndopted, will operate to throw upon tho governing bodj whntovtr measure of risk mav bo involved in tho xucrlnicnt if entered upon, and It Is manifestly just that there tho risk should lie, rather than upon tho helpless and possible non assontlng creditor. "To accomplish the objects herein suggested without unnecessarily contracting tho circula tion some other form of paper moncv must bo allowed to till tho vacuum which mlgnt other wise bo occasioned. The national luvnk note, now familiar to our pcoplo. Is the readiest and most practical agent to nciomplish that oblect, and under reasonable conditions It will be found responsive to tho call. An enlarged issue of bank notes thus contemplated would require a numbcrof amendments to tho present National Hank act. Theso amendments should be made only upon such conservative lines as would, whllo granting tho uccessar) aid to tho business world In facilitating exchanges. In no vrlo weaken the system or lessen tho stability of tho notes to bo issued. "The complaint uttcrod against tho National Bank act as it now stands Is not directed to tho mothod of bank organization or tho absolute, safety guaranteed to tbo nolo holder. It is di rt cted to thoso restrictions which it emboJIes. thnt result In itB failure to accomulish tho full benefit which otbervvlso would follow. Tho re quirement of the law nowmnkes it impossible to organize a bank with n capital of less than JSO, 000, no matter h w small tbo place in which it is to be locati d, or how restricted the volume of business there to be transacted. Ileiause ot this, with the added expense of taxation, both national and local, man; communities are tie- Srivcdoftbcnld of banks of Issue, and bur ened with onerous rates ot exchnngo and interest tharges. " In order to obv late to ns great an extent as possible those objections and mnk the net mora harmonious with roper business conditions, I recommend that it bo unionded in tho following porticulars: "First. I'criuit national banks to be organized with a minimum capital of $J5.0O0 in any place having a population of 2,000 inhabitants or less. "Second. Itcduco the rate of taxntlon on cir culating notes secured by deposit ot bonds to one half of 1 per cent, per annum " Third. Permit banks now organize lor here after organized to issue circulating notes to the par valuo ot the refunding bonds hereinbefore orovided deposited by them with the Treasurer of the United fatntes. And. further, allow such banks as shall avail theuiselv cssf the opportu nity to deposit ns security with the Trensury of the United "stntcs grei nbacks, treasurv notc.or eilvcfcertlflcates to tbeamountofsOij 0011,000, against which there shall nt onro issut to them by the Comptroller of the Curnncv national bank notos loan equal amount, it l-clng further pro vided that from time to time, at his con venli nee, tho Secretary of tlio Treasury shall substitute for tho greenbacks, 'lroasurv notes and silver certificates so deposited to secure circulation bonds of Iho same class and character ns the re funding bonds tirst named, to the amount of sf'JOO.OOO 000, such londs to be chargeable to said banks and by them accounted for nt such price (not less than par) as the market quotations may in lieato to bo their fair market value. During tho periol of tlmo Intervening between tho deposit of greenbacks. Trensury notes, nnd silver icrtitt cntcs and tho substitution of tho bonds by tbo Secretary of theTrcnsurj. t lie circulating uotes specifically issued therefor shall be exempt from taxation Upon such substitution of bonds, the funds rulen'id tlurcbv dial! nl onco bo trnn ferredby the Secretary of the Treasury to the Bureau of Issue and Itedemiition. "Fourth Afler said hanks have deposited such bonds, greenbacks, Treasury notes, or sii vcr certificates to the amount of flO per cent, of their capital they shall be purmitled to issue bank notes in addition lo tho Ml per cent, thus provided, to tho extent oftiSpcr tint, of such deposit, which snid '2' per cent, niaj be unse cured by an direct pledge of sieurity, but Issiii d gainst tlio nsscts of tho bank. "Fifth hxtend the gunrnnteoof payment by the Government to nil circulating notes of tho bank, whether issued against deposited security or against assets.
