HjB of the fact should be boldly faced.

Ijj chase and coinage of silver, supplemented and

HDl I of tho L'nltcd Mates to secure by safeguards of
BS' legislation 'tho parity In a nluo of tho coins of
WI tho two met lis, gold and slhcr. and the equal
fg power of even dollar nt all times In tho mar-
Mk A Lets and In tho payment of debts.'
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

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.
(ft ill' "If it be urged, in answer to these cons'dera-
ihJ I ' tions, that tlie state of tho Treasury Is fairly
vSJil satisfactory now, that gold is flowing freely to-
"Ji I ward tho Treasury nnd not away from it, that
ifjj S there is a good state of confidence In our Unan-
HI j cial status, tho answer must be received as a
RSf1 pcrfectlvcorrcctono. It might bo further urged
Mji with probiblo truth that theso favorable condi-

blgulty from our contract obligations, an
nnibigiiitv which nfietts iinfnvornlily tbo Gov

Nor Is such a course without nlso prece

ndoplion ofnspecltlo form of payment for tho
public debt would bo Inimical to the spirit nf a
qualifying clause In tbo ropcnllng act of lS'J.I,
which re ids:
" ' And it Is hereby dcclnred to be the policy of
the United States to continuo thu use of both
cold and sllv cms standard inoiuj. nnd toioiti
both gohl nnd slhir Into inone) of equal in
trinsic and i vcbnngeable v nine.'
"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

When the enthusiastic cheering that was ac

"But, notwithstanding tho sad event, tho

London, Oct. 20. Tho newspapers publish
long notices of tho death of Henry George,
and all acknowledge his personal Integ
rity. The criticisms of his doctrines follow
lines In ace rdanco with the views of
the individual journals. Tho Times says that
if b) any chanco ho had been elected, Mr.
George, although a scrupulously honest man,
would probabl) have disappointed his dev
otees. It adds that his disappearance will glvo
a great advantage tn Tammany.
I he .Slumlord Bays that Mr. George's opinions
will bo invested with fresh potency Just because
tho hand of Fato touched him suddenl) when

Tho ( hromcle declares that no better man
or sweeter man has lived for many

party of social discontent Is ready for
action ngalnst the powerful forces of American
plutocrncy we can hope for It nothing better
than that it have the guidanco of ns earnest,

Non-Partisan Government and jl
Its Benefits to the City. Jl
f
Non partisan municipal government, ns prac 2
tlccd b) tho present Republican Deform Aelmln- ,
Istrntlon, has not benefited tho taxpajors or J
any othor clnss of citizens In nny material way.
It hasbeon narrow nnd blgole d lu nil lis branches: '
It hasflllod thoCIt) ofllces with Inexperienced
and incompetent men, many of thetu nonresi
dents; It lias Increased taxation without visible
benefit. This government, Instead ot being non
partisan, tins been partisan r.nd (notional to a
degree unknown under former administrations.
No man hns been appointed tu nny Important
oDIco because of his Illness. Almost every ap
pointment vvns nn open reward for sumo real or
Imaginary political service. Aflor throo )oars
of fair trial, non partisanship stands rovoalcdaa
a mockery a living llo masquerading under
tho stained and tattered cloak of reform a gov
ernment aiming less nt tho public good thnn the
liberal reward of those claiming credit for Its
cxlstcnco, Men Ignorant of tho laws thoy are
supposed to ndmlnlstcr nnd uphold, tnon ot no
exptrleuco vvhntsoovor In city government have
been placed nt tho bend of important depart
ments, und their Bolo aim has been to take care
ot themselves and tholr friends. Laws have
been ignored or defied In tho namo of roform,
ltod tape nnd usolcss formalities havo takon tho
plnieof business methods In tho conduct of
municipal nlfnlrs
Iho Department of atrcct Cloanlng has been
set up as the one shining oxnmplo of reform, 16
hns been cit c d as a department vv lioro thero rf al
no shadow of politics or partisanship. Tbo ap
pointment of tlie prtscnt Commli-sliinor was the
reward asked and obtained b) the Kdltor of the
"I veiling Host" for his support of tho roform
ticket ot mill, Thocmployniontof tho editor's
sunns nttorncy for corpurntlons doing huslnoss
with tho department inn to called ncnlncldcnco
under a "reform" irov eminent, hutnt anv other
lime It would bo called "n political bargain."
The present government Is cost Ing $10 000,000
a year more than a Democratic government El
cost. It has increased tho bonded debt of the
city $24,000 000. Iho man who pnvs $211 a h
year In taxes now whore ho paid $1711 under J
Democratic rulo may not bo enough of a ro-
formor to nceept tho chiingo without question.
Ileum) bo curious to know In what way ho hai
been benofltcd. If ho Investigates closely ha
will find that he hns not been benefited. Ho will
find that tho cily, as a vv hole, has not boen bene
fited; but it mav satisf) him to learn that a
large number of men, of whom honovcr hoard,
have obtaluol good ofllces; that certnin busi
ness houses hnvo obtained a monopoly of the
trade of the citv , nnd thatmany ambitious younp;
law v era w ho belong to a ccrtnln political faction
have secured easy and lucrntlvo business In tho
wa) of commissions tor tho opening of street
and for acquiring property for various city pur
poses If tho curious taxpayer seeks details ho mlgtot
