"OTHERWISE" SECURITY. tho Johnson Mooting "hero Oct. 10, It is respectfully suggested that the place Intended for.hltn In the tent on ttint occasion tic takcn'by Gen. Clins. Dick. The Ocncvnl has had experience In the auditor's olllco nnd Is nlo n rcndy speaker. There Is no doubt whatever but that Mayor Johnson would bo de lighted to meet him. 'A few years ago some farmers out In Nebraska, being In bnrd.' lines for wnnt of money with which to carry on their Industry, but lmvlng plenty'of wheat and the like grains, .proposed to deposit n lot of tho latter wltlrtbo government ns security against Which currency might bo Issued for the Re lief of tholr needs. Thus they clalmod the govcrnmpnt would bo safe, having a" tangible and always .marketable security, whllo the farmer would be supplied with enough money to keep bis business from bankruptcy. The scheme was hooted at ns wildly i visionary aud tho. proposers of it as lunatics, and nowhere so vehemently u hi Wall Street. u.is: week Wall Street found Itsolf, through tho opcrat'on of the whirligig of time and fortune, In the same plight with tho authors of tho sub-treaBury proposition of a dozen years since. There was, however, this difference: Tho wants of tho Western farmers wero entirely meritorious nnd honest A unit of value was, through the operation of a fiscal policy designed to help the East as against tho West, constantly appreciating In valuo, whllo every commodity which the farmer had to give In exchange for It wns falling In price, with tho In evitable result of wide-spread distress which could find no rollcf except through nn augmented volumo of cir culating medium" ,pf exchange. On tho other hand tho panic which rattled Wall Street last week, and eqnt the shivers np nnd down Its isplnal column till mil money on Sat urday reached 35 per cent, had Its orlgln, as nil the numerous panics of that region do, In stock gambling. IThat particular place, tho scat of tho gambling Industry of tho country, Is, 'nVhero tho "captains of Industry" have their offices and where the "upholders Df tho honor of tho nation" live. It Sa tho peculiar dwelling place of tho gold standard, tho only standard, ns the publlo woro assured In 1800 and IJ000, which could bo relied on ns stablo, and subject to no fluctuations. Nover tholoss, Ott Saturday Inst, thcio win to. fit la tho street of ' ts periodical financial Jim-Jams; nnd nnd here the point of departuro from the- farmer's Bub-txcasury exporlonco camo in, ri. clamor was mado for tho government to como tip to tho holp of tho Lord against tho mighty, who In squeezing tho life out of tho shorts had run short Df money and must havo some to mako good. And tho government of course, -Just as tnuoh of coiirso ns Us rldl tulo of tho Nebraska cry, losponded. JThe Secretary of tho Treasury ubd(- cnted -his post at tho capital of tho country and his duty to look after Its finances, wont Into Wall Street nnd mado haste to assure tho gentlemen there, who wero at the time violating tho law by permitting their rcsorvo fundB to go below the legnl limit, that ho was tholr humble and very much obliged servant, lendy not only to wink at their breach of tha stntuto, but to loan tho credit of tho govern ment to them to holp thorn out of tho fix Into which their gambling propen sities nnd lawless hnblts hnd brought them. And not only so, but to mnk'o tho United Stntes nn active pawn broker for theso gamblers, thW man duties ns financial ngents of tho gov eminent." It'wlll bo observed that the Sectctnry rends intothls law tho word "or," In stead of "and" ns It, now read", before The word "otherwise." His predc cosKors havo uniformly refused to do thYsj but have construed the statute toVinenu what It plainly says: 1. e. that the security to bo taken by him for' deposit's 6f government money niust consist of United States bonds in nu) I event, and thnt ho may require under tho term "otherwise," such ad ditional collateral ns mny seem to hlra besi Ills Interpretation of It, how ever, dispenses with bonded security, and' allows the latter to bo displaced whatever he may be willing reoplo used to shiver nt tho thought of the western farmers having no fuel but corn. Now they envy them. Even com beats no fuel, i ? to 'accept ns the 'otlietwlec," which iririy, and sooner or later will, mean v: something far loss valuable and even less convertible, than the Nebraska frirmer's proposed deposit of wheat, so bitterly scoffed nt a few years ago. Under this foicod Intciprctntlon, what the Sccietniy of the Treasury says amounts to the equivalent of some 1112 millions of money havo been re leufcd within a week for the purposes of tho New York financiers. And for tho tlmo It relieves them from their panicky sltuntlon. The transaction Is strictly revolu tionary, measured even by nll Street standards. The cry thero has been: "The go eminent must go out of the banking business." Tho week past hi" shown not only thnt the gov ernment has not gone out of tho bank ing business, but that It. proposes to stay lu that business, nnd to u'.o tho people's money In thnt business, not, however, for tho lienoflt of tho people, but to help out those whose thrifty business consists In fleecing thorn. We know several men in this town who would like to borrow money on sequrlty of 'the "others Ise" sort, Just ns tho Nebraska folks wonted to on wheat. Hut wo may be very sure they will obtain nothing. Their business id to earn money for the government and' pay It out In the shape of protec- tidhf for tho Industries or tho country. It Is riot too niueli to sny that this notion of tho udmlnlstintlon In furnWi Ingjqredlt to the N.PW York banks in nn'ninoiint Avhlch, now thnt a begin nlnij Is once made, will bo limited only by 'the quantities of "otherwise" which tho 'iinpor mills enn bo mndo to grind out (ln tio shnpe of bonds and stocks, nnd which the go eminent has by tills precedent bound Itself to take, this action, wo say, turns over the Treas ury! of the United Stntes to , Wall Street, n a mora, mines to -Its stock exchange. Tlio icsult for the tlmo being wns announced In yesterday's dispatches, tl.u-1: "Tho .Morgan stocks mo free fr.un n raid." Morgan Is hclpeij nut of financial trouble, nnd tho countty Is s.'lfe. Hut when a fanner Is thrent cued with foreclosure -proceedings, docA the Treasury department step In nndlsnve his fuini for him? Not munli.
