\Te have never seen any reason to
change the opinion, formed on a care
ful examination of the facta, that the so- i
c led "reserve of forty-four millions of
greenbacks was not lawfully within the
control of the Treasury department. <
Circumstances have, however, says The
New York Times, so changed since tho _
quastion was lirst brought to public
fee, that it would no longer be reason- ,
or just to blame the Secretary of the
usury for acting on the view of which J
ho entertains, that the law places this sum ,
in his hands to be used at his discretion t
for the current expenses of the >
government. He is sustained in this posi
tion by the lact that after the matter was ,
tilicitly laid before Congress, that body i
iberately declined to take action in re- l
■d to it, although it was understood that '
tho Treasury department would act on its
own view of the case unless otherwise in- •
stiucted. The department has, moreover,
heen to such a degree compelled to resort
to the use of these notes, and it has shown
in its conduct throughout the distressing
period of the panic, such careful adherence
to the letter and spirit of the law,
that it would not be right to criti
cise it for the exercise of a power which
seems to be clearly its own, and which
Congress lefuses to dispute. We agree
with those who think that it is most unfor
tunate that any room should have been
left to an executive officer to imagine that
lie possessed such remarkable discretion.
It is an evidence of the confusion into which
our law-makers have fallen of late years,
that they should decline to take cognizance
of a case of such great importance, and
should leave to inference the exercise of a
power such as no free government has ever
before tolerated except in moments of-ex
treme necessity. Uut since this is actually
the case, is it worth while to expend our
censures upon tbe executive officer, who is
undoubtedly acting conscientiously, reserv
ing none for tho legislative body that takes
so loose and dangerous a course as Con
gress has taken in this matter ?
And it is to be remembered that the
Secretary now asks Congress to definitely
regulate the uso of the reserve. In his
annual report he says : "In view of the
uncertainty which exists in public senti
ment as to the right of tho Secretary of
the Treasury to issue United States notes
in excess of the minimum, and the conflict
of opinion as to tho policy of doing so,
conceding that he has that right under the
law, I respectfully recommend that Con
cress shall set these questions at rest by a
distinct enactment." This Congress ought
to do. The Secretary points out what ex
perience has taught plainly enough, that
unless this is done—unless his power over
the reserve is limited, and the manner in
which it shall be used clearly defined—he
will constantly be subjected to pressure
first from ono side and then from the
other, at one time for expansion, at an
other for contraction. He asks that the
reserve, if authorized by law, be devoted
solely to the ordinary demands of the
Treasury, and for the redemption of frac
tional notes, "the amount so issued to be
returned to the reserve as soon as the con
dition of the Treasury shall warrant it."
That the Secretary should b.e allowed a
reserve to meet transient emergencies is
but the dictate of common sense. The re
ceipts of the Treasury and the demands
upon it are, of course, generally to be de
termined nearly enough, but they cannot
always be calculated exactly, and it is ab
surd in a business of such dimensions to
suppose that a cash reserve can bo dis
pensed with. As long as the only substi
tute for CRsh wo have is United States
notes, the reserve must be in these.
The Postmaster-Qeneral lias ordered
lhat hereafter appointments of special
agents of the department will be made
subject to examination by a board of ex
aminers to be duly appointed, whose duty
it shall be to examine special agents and
report in writing, particularly as to their
qualifications. Persons found not quali
fied will be dismissed the service.
This is an admirable order of Mr. Cres
well, and should bo carried into effect in
all departments of tho civil service, both
of tho national, state and municipal gov
ernments. Incipient army and navy offi
cers each have to undergo the various
tests deemed essontial to the proper per
formance of the dutios confided to their
care, and failing are cast aside. There is
as much reason for ascertaining ability be
fore entrusting power and authority in the
one case as the other. A thorough en
forcement of such an order iv all depart
ments of the government would ensure
faithful and worthy officers, and relieve
Congress and others of the importunities <
of the many cross-road politicians who '
think they have a call to serve their couu- '
try in a public capacity.
The bankrupt law is commanding tho .
attention of nearly every member of the
Senate, and the judiciary committee will
report a bill on tho subject after the holiday
recess. Senator Hitchcock recently ad
dressed a letter to Senator Edmunds upon
the point whether it was feasible to make
the repeal of the feature oi involuntary ,
bankruptcy retroactive, and whether there i
was any probability of such action being I
taken at an early date. An answer upon *
these points was begged upon the ground !
that an affirmative answer would go so far *
to relieve public anxiety, and prevent *
useless and oppressive litigation. Senator "
Edmunds replied that so far as his voice "
goes the repeal shall be made retroactive in g
Mich a way that no person will gain any- 11
thing by any oppressive steps towards
debtors, and feels confident that this will lie '
the opinion of the Senate. c
