REDEMPTION UNDEH WAY

Trying to Supplant Old Is

WAuttsnTov, July 2S. In s summary
of currency conditions In Mexico, lurd
by tbe carransa Government thrnmth Its
pi ess bureau to-day, the assertion Is
made that the Constitutionalist revolu
tion against ffuerta wns eirrl'd tn a suc
cess through the Instrumentality of "no,.
000,000 peBos In paper currency without
substantial barking of any kind.
One of the most Important problems
before the Carrnnza flovernnient to-day
Is the creation of a sound ctiirency. It
Is asserted that the old paper hi b-lng re
tired from circulation so rapidly that by
the end of the year not more than $3fl.
000,000 In gold at the most and perhaps
only half this sum will be required to j
redeem the outstanding "revolutionary'
All railroad ami telegraph dues and
many other forms of indebtedness to the
Mexican Oovernment have been mado
payable In the old paper up to January
I, 101. All currency thus received Is
burned. I'pward of HOO.OCft.OOO pesos
hnve already been destroyed. Hy the
first of the year It Is expected that not
more than a fourth of the old paper will
Some Cnrlou llrsalta.
The acceptance of the old paper for ;
rnllrond fares has had some curious re-1
suits. An American when recently pre-
paring lo Journey from Mexico city to
the fnlted Stntes bought 11,000 In $10
peso notes, for which he paid five dollnrs
It- gold. The cot of railroad and Pull
man fares was $ 4 fi ! Mexican, or Jnt
f 1 .14 American gold. The average cot
In pre-revolutionary days was about ISO.
It Is easier to Issue paper currency, and
perhapr cen to win a revolution thromthi
tl.e instrumentality of millions In papr
peos, than It Is to role the ensulns1
cfrrency problem. Judging by the present
day perplexities of the Carranza Gov-1
Here Is the store of the eurrenev dlf-l
ficultles as outlined bv Carranza's repre-1
sentntlve In Washington :
Huerta's opponents iK-cnn their move-

chnracter available, the machinery of
revenue and taxation being In the hands
'of those who had overturned the Madero

to the issue of paper promises to pay in
order to set armt. and munitions and the
aecessorles of a military movement. Ma
dero's resolution, on the contrary, had

When the revolution was a success
and "stock taking" time arrived It was
found that "oo.ono.'jnn pesos of suth

Is a possibility that Ihe whole amount

are obliged to be paid In specie, and
the larger portion of this goes Into the

Old Issues Are Being Itetlred. 1
While the new paper la being emitted
the former Issues are being retired. On
