The second day’s ssssloo of the Congressional
Committee to Inquire into Uie causes of depres
sion in labor and stagnaUon In bustneas was
held b( Uie Tremoat House, in this city, yester
day, the venerable Chairman, Mr. Hendrick 11.
Wright, at the head of Uie Board. Some of Uie
solid men of Uie city having had Uictrsay upon
Uio subject under InvcsUgation, there was an
appearance of the Socialistic element yesterday,
mixed with a sprinkling of theorists and croak
ers. It was quite delightful to see some of the
corucr-stono sophistries of these men, upon
which are built their flimsy superstructures,
pulled to pieces ami destroyed by
Bhcrwln, of Illinois, nnd Dickey, of Ohio.
There was a strong Impression existing in the
mind of Mr. Wright, and perhaps oUier mem
bers of the Commission, that Chicago was cov
ered with mortgages, that Its citizens were alt
bankrupt or about to become so, and Uiat tho
city, though fairly prosperous at the present
time, was so temporarily, ond that It would soon
sink hack into Uio black abyss of bankruptcy
and ruin In which they hod hoped to find her.
These opinions were somewhat shaken by the
statements of’Mcssrs. Gage, Randolph, and
Kit, J. TODNG SCAMMON,
who came hero In 1835, made the tint state
ment. Mr. Scammon stated that bo was a law
yer by profession, but bad been engaged in
banking and general business since that time.
Mr. Wright wanted Mr. Scammon to giro a
general Idea of the depression In this country
since 1875, If there had been any.
Mr. Scammon said there had been on almost
universal depression hero since 1873. In his
judgment It commenced in 1872, when wo had
premonitory symptoms of what was coming
then. Id the tall of 1873 we wore enabled to
bridge over tho chasm only by the aid of the
Government. The great demand for money
•here was to move tho crops. Wo wanted
all the money wo could get, generally
In the fall of the year, to purchase
the cereals, the hogs, and the beeves, and to
fatten them. After the crops had been moved
tho money collected in the great money centre,
which was New York City. After the crops
were moved money became abundant. It re
mained abundant until the' (all of the year
again. In 1873 the New York banks could not
send the money that belonged to us, bcnco
came a depression. That was in tho fall of
1873, which wo all knew was relieved by the de
posit of $5,000,000 by the Government in New
York. That enabled us to move the crops for
that year. When tho next fall came the busi
ness and the population of the country had In
creased and the demand for money hod
Increased. Money that had been circulating
In tho West returned to New York. The de
posit of $5,000,000 had been returned to tho
Government. The Government was not dis
posed to make soy further deposits In the banks
af Now York. They had been relieved, and
they wore In no such Imminent danger ns caused
them to call upon tho Government again. On
tho contrary, they thought it was for their In
terest to allow a scarcity of money. When Chi
cago business men demanded the money to bo
.returned to tho Northwest to enable us to move
our crops, they could not do it. They could not
return tho money which belonged to us.
TOB BANKS ALL DTtOKB, AND DISASTER CAMB
npon us. He sold now, as he said then, that
the disasters of 1878 were caused Ijy a refusal of
the Government to make the volume of cur
rency commensurate with the wants uf the peo
ple. From one-quarter to one-third of the labor
of this country was thrown out of employment.
This stopped so many of the Industrial estab
lishments of the Northwest ami of the country
ftncrally that at least ono-quarler to one
bird ot the people were thrown out
of employment, and from ‘ that time
until lost fall a largo portion- of the
community bad been living, not upon what
they were earning, but upon what they had on
hand. During Mr. Scamraon’s long statement,
ho said there woa no such thing os over-produc
tion, provided the power of distribution kept
pace with tho production. This country, ho
said, had never been so prosperous as from 1805
to 1806, during which period there was plenty
of money. Ho called attention to the largo de
linquent-tax list of Chicago, the publication of
which annually cost not less than SBO,OOO. At
present wherever there was ony business pros
perity In Chicago it was exceptional; neverthe
less Uicro been an Improvement in the aspect of
affairs. The bankers of Chicago had been prac
tically so many pawnbrokers’ shops, taking col
lateral and advancing a small portion of their
values. His opinion was Hint the main business
of the country would be done on trust and not
on Interest-bearing notes and money collaterals.
Mr. Cowgll), a member of the Committee,
asked the Chairman how wide a range was to bo
allowed to these statements. Hu was of opin
ion that tho resolution under which tho Com
mission was created did not contemplate going
Into all these remote causes of distress.
Mr. Wright said Uio widest rouge had been
given to the statements of gentlemen yesterday,
and It was not Uie intention of Uie Committee
to limit Uiem now.
Mr. Bcammon proceeded to give bis views
farther, lie believed that
ALL OTHER IMtOI'BRTY WAS A SLATE TO HONEY.
This country had always been ailllctcd by slav
ery of sumo kind, and one of the phases of it
was Uio slavery of everything to money. In
1873 laborers were paid from $1.50 to 1.75 per
day. Since that time Uiero had been
•n Improvement, but the condition of labor
was not now In a healthy state. In his oplnlou
there nevor had been but ono way out of this
depression, and Uuit wos to Increase the volume
of the currency of the country. It was hts
opinion Uiut Uie volume ol currency should bo
gradually increased to double what It was now.
In reply to a quesUon by Mr. Dickey, a mem
ber of the Committee, be stated that the vol
ume of currency of the country should at least
be increased to $1,603,000,000. Men had, since
the deoressiou, become land poor; Uie great
majority of them had been unable to pay their
taxes, and vast quantities of land had been for
feited to Uie State. Heal estate had been una
ble to carry Its own taxes and assessments,—ex
cept a few favored or particular pieces of land,
such as some on Slate street, fur Instance. In
Hyde Pork, where he lived, “the suburb”
ol Chicago, be thought, a place where prop
erty had, before the panic, been greatly
In demand, you coala not now give it away.
The sales of property when the depression bo-
Tan created a plethora of money in the banks,
through the Receivers, etc. The money was all
In banks, but did not belong to the bankers; It
belonged to their creditors, as Mr. bcammon
•aid to Sol Smith. “ 1 find, Bcammon,” said
Sol, •• that there Is no money outside of Uio
tanks.” “Yes, Smith,” replied Mr. Bcammon,
“ but It don’t belong to you; It belongs to vour
creditors.” Mr. Bcammon next gave the Com
mittee an account of Uio depression In rent mid
price of a piece of property on State and Ran
dolph streets, but the intrinsic value of this
property was not less but greater now than
ever before, for Chicago was a largo city and Its
business was greater. ITe then gave some in
stances of prosperity, but Uicy were exceptional,
be tala; the great mass of people and property
bad been lo a bad way.
In answer to a query by Mr. O’Connor, of
couth Carolina, bo said the country had really
bo use at all lor gold and silver except for mer
chandise, and that Uie currency of Uie country
should bo paper. Money was purely an arti
ficial thing. The credit of the United States
Government was sufficient to make fiat money.
Mr. Morton, of North Carolina, asked Mr.
Bcammon 11 bo would have this fifteen hundred
Bullions of dollars convertible into com. He
would. Ho would have the Government Issue
a convertible bond bearing a small Interest.
There was undoubtedly a great depression lu
business hero In Chicago.
Air. Martin remarked that everything looked
Yery prosperous to him now.
Mr. Scarartion said that one usually derived
bis Ideas of those things by comparison. There
was much property in Chicago that would not
awl entire for what Uio buildmga on It cost, lie
did not think Uiat too much bud been paid lor
rebuilding Chicago after the great fire.
If these men hud not paid too much for theso
buildings, why was It, asked Mr. Martin, that
those meu who bad erected them had become
Air. Bcammon attributed their failure to the
(rest paulg 0(1876, and cot to Um results of
Uio great Arc. Uut for Uie iloorcaaloo tn busi
ness all Itii! buildings erected by Mr. Scammon
would bnvo been occupied ntid he would bavo
not been forced to ruin.
In reply to a question by Mr. Bhcrwln, Mr.
Scatmnon stated that
ALL PANICS WBItB CREATED BT A CONTRACTION
OP TUB CUtmBNCT,
and tbe panic ot 1873 was no exception. When*
ever the contraction of the currency began, it
was like a coming pestilence. Fear killed more
than the pestilence itself. Tho apprehension of
a scarcity of money caused a vast deal of hoard
ing hr everybody. He would have the Govern
ment Issue its own paoer for every dollar oi
expenditure by the Government, lie would have
HicGoyerumcbtuscull the coin that came in, not
demanded for lur'own paper, In paying for tho
Government bonds, ills opinion was there was
no demand for gold and silver In this country
for money; everybody preferred a National
bauk note or a Treasury note to coin. I hero
had been a failure of some fifteen or twenty
banks hi Chicago alnco 1873, caused by a shrink
age of securities. „ .. ~
Mr. Cowgill asked If Mr. Seamraon thought It
would bo a ludldous plan to conduct a banking
LOANING MONIT WITHOUT BBOURITT.
Mr. Bcammon replied that ho thought It
would be just as judicious os to sell a man a
stock of goods ou credit, without security, lie
himself had made most money loaning in that
war. He thought personal security wu enough.
A hanker was merely a merchant. The hank
ers ot England followed this plan. Speaking
again of the need of an increase In the currency,
Mr. Scammon said tbe currency of every
country should he just as commensurate with
the country’s Industrial demands as Uie blood
lu a man’s veins and his food should ho with
Uie size of Uie man and Um work ho had to do.
“ Now, on this point," said Mr. Uickey,
*• whnt do you think should be the amount of
currency In Ibis country I l '
“And bow much should It be Increased I”
added Mr. O'Connor.
“Well, I suppose the Lord knows; I don’t,”
was Mr. Scammon’srcjotndcr.
lie proceeded to sav, however, that he did
not think there should ho any limitation to tiie
currency of a country other than Unit imposed
by Uie laws oi supply ami demand. The legis
lation and press of this land had been, tn Ids
opinion, on a wrong tack for about twenty-five
years. The nature of things was such in a
civilized country like this that business must ho
done on trust—on paper. A sublime confidence
of our fcllowmon was a fundamental basis of
111c,—tho basis upon which government and
society rested.—and the thing, in bis opinion, to
bo done was (or the Government to pass a very
simple law, making enough money to render It
possible for a man to convert his property nt
any time Into actual money, with Uie provision
Unit Uie Government might at any time call in
this currency and substitute coin. Then, ho
thought, there would be no demand for coin.
COL. J. K. C. FORREST,
for forty years a resident of Chicago, and a
writer for the press, gave his Ideas relative to
the depression in the country mid the .dangers
still ahead. Secretary Sherman was now In
flating the currency all the time by every dollar
of silver and every dollar of greenbacks created.
A Government could not go on rooking money
always, without coming to an end. The only
remedy was the creation of a central National
bank to discount the paper, so as to keep up an
equilibrium between money and property. Labor
and property were very much depressed In Chi
cago at the present time. For Mr. Itandolpti,
Secretary of the Board of Trade, to come up
hero before this Committee and state that this
city was In a very prosperous condition was tho
most ridiculous thing ho ever heard of.
printer and publisher of Chicago, read a some
what lengthy statement to the Committee, giv
ing his views upon tho subject under considera
tion. The great Journals of Chicago repre
sented the energy, growth, and power of the
West, hut they also belonged to Wall street,
the National, banks, and wore controlled bv the
successful and the sclflsbclnsses. Tub Chicago
Tiudunb especially misrepresented them. Hool
estate In Chicago was worthless, labor was para
lyzed, ami money was dear. Theoretically
money was 5 or 0 per cent per annum, but prac
tically It was 0 to 10 per cent per month.
There was no encouragement to enterprise tor
the want of money, ami there wos much suffer
ing among the workingmen. There was at least
20 per cent of those who belonged to the print
ers’ craft, of which bo wos a member, without
work to-day. Thu principle of taking from the
rich and giving to the poor, which was advocated
nv the Communists, was certainly not less un
just and cruel than the practice of rending the
earnings of the poor from their hands to give to
the rich. Too sudden a contraction of the cur
rency was the cause of the present depression.
The workingmen mortgaged their lives and
bodlcs to the rich. What was wanted was free
education, free land, free labor, and free money.
The Secretary of the Treasury claimed that tile
National debt was being rapidly reduced, where
as It was being Increased. This was not shown
hv dollars, but by the purchasing power of the
dollar. A dollar to-day would purchase three
times as much land and other property as it
would ten years ago, and this was the secret of
the burden. The workingmen wanted a‘free
ballot, which was denied them-now. They were
bulldozed, ami not given time to vote now.
Public lands should bo free to pre-emptors.
Millions of acres hail been given to railroads,
and he thought the citizen should have an equal
chanco. By free money ho meant that they
should have the money of the Government.
Trades-Uulous had been denounced as tyrannic
al, when the doctors, the lawyers, tho manu
facturers, etc., all had their organizations.
Besides tluxt. there was the Board ot Trade
hero organized to rob both tho producer
amt tile purchaser. Nothing was said against
that. Ho wanted the Government to establish
a Labor Bureau. We were junt emerging from
barbarism, otherwise this would have been pro
vided for botorc.
JOHN n. KBDZIB
bod resided In Chicago for thirty years, and was
a real-estate dealer. The cause of depression
was two-fold. One was the municipal, corpo
rate, and simitar Indebtedness, with private In
debtedness, and an expansion of Uio circulating
medium of all countries, and Uie oUicr was the
demonetization of silver. This latter act
caused a contraction of Uie circulating medium,
which was Injurious to business. This, in brief,
was the cause of hard times, and the two com
bined produced these results. By figures ho
produced, Mr. Kedzle claimed that the taxon
the real value of property la Chicago did nut
exceed 1 per cent per annum. Thu failure of
Jay Cooke & Co. was Uie spark that started the
conflagraUon that destroyed the llnauccs of the
country. He was opposed to high taxes, which
In some eases amounted to a confiscation of
property, lie was nut lu favor of an income tax.
van u. niaaiNS,
who came lu 1837, stated that, in his opinion,
Uio cause of labor depression dated back to the
prodigal times of Uie War. There was much
idleness engendered Uicu; Uiero was a great
destruction of property, and there was an enor
mous indebtedness Incurred. Ju 1800 ami 1801
Uiero was a general prostrotloii, and there was
no business. When the Government began to
Issue money the times began to mend, mid af
ter a time all vacant buildings were occupied,
and Uiero was a revival of trade, so
that In 1803 Uiero was employment lor
everybody, and prices of all agricultural
products were increased. There were probably
thirteen millions of people employed at work.
Uf tblsnumbcr 0,000,000 were agriculturists,
and 7,000,000 were engaged lu other pursuits.
This woe on a basis of a population of 40,000,000
of people. All Uieso were at work. When Uio
contraction of Uie currency begau Uieso men
were thrown out of employment, until there was
a widespread and universal depression.
TUB I’ROULKU OF CIVILIZATION
was to keep the people employed profitably.
Tim actual amount of money in circulation to*
day was not enough to pov Urn laborers of the
country for sixty days. Wo bad 1000,000,000.
Tim secret of a country’s prosperity was In keep
ing Its laborers employed at remunerative rates.
It was not by economy that & nation became
rich. Tim Indian was Urn most economical
Inhabitant of American soil. Vet tm
was not rich. If laborers were paid
10 cents per day the country
would enjoy Just ono-tenth Urn prosperity widen
It would enjoy If it paid $1 a day. A country’s
prosperity was always In proportion to the wages
paid the laboring men. The amount of money
needed by the country depended upon circum
stances. If only 10 cents a day was paid to the
laborer, only ono-tenth Dm volume of currency
would bo required that would bo necessary If ho
was paid $1 a day. Labor should regulate urn
amount of our currency. Wo could not have a
sound currency on an unsound basis, lie would
moke a currency that was redeemable in cum or
In convertible Interest-bearing bonds. Thu
remedy for the Ills that existed—lo-wit: the
stagnation In business—was to stimulate enter
prises by abundant money. During the War It look
two thousand millions of dollars to do the busi
ness of the country,«idle now t lu*re was no more
than eight or nine hundred millions, a small
portion of which was in the bauds of the people.
la answer to a question by Mr. Sherwln, Mr.

Mr. Higgins aaid they were restrained from
motives of prudence, ami they would not
outage in business at all. If ho had had $5,030.-
000 during the last feW yearn he wottld lock it
Up and nit noon it. In his opinion the contrac
tion of tiic currency had resulted In the present
depression of business. The ner capita In
France of money in circulation wu about $55,
while In this country it was probably from sl2
to S2O. There was not probably more than lour
or flvu hundred millions of dollars afloat, the
balance being hoarded or locked tip In the
banka. Hie passage of the Resumption act
alarmed Die people, and they gave away tiidr
property, the banks failed, ond a panic ensued.
Had this result been accomplished gradually
there might nut have been any disastrous re
sult. lie thought the 4 per cent bonds would
ultimately come Into circulation to sotno extent,
and be used tn exchange for property, but he
did not consider this a legitimate currency such
as the people ought to have.
MR. D. R. BTRXBTBIt,
a Printer, and President of the Trade and
Labor Union of Chicago, representing
twenty-seven societies, appeared before tho
Committee and read a written state
ment embracing the statistics contained In
the last report to tbe Trade and. Labor Union
by tbe various societies embraced In It, showing
the average weekly earnings when steadily em
ployed, lime lost during the roar, reduction of
wages since 1872, average rent per month, edu
cational expenses, Including newspapers, and
the sanitary condition of workshops.
The general average of Uie cost of living of
all these societies Is summarized as follows:
Groceries, $337.26 per annum; clothing, $(91,(11;
fuel, $33.3(1; rent, $75.27; recreation, $1U.74;
education, $11.(H: total expenses, $-145.50.

earnings, S7U. 'Hie above statement of the cost
of living divided by the number of living days
tn the year, 305 days, and also, divided by the
number of persons per family,—live,—allows
each person per' day for subsistence 13 cents,
clothing 3 3-5 cents, fuel 1 4-5 cents, rent 4
cents, recreation MU cent, education 3-5 cent;
total expenditure per day, 23 cents.
Mr. Streeter stated that the condition of labor
in this city was deplorable, but not as bad ns in
the winter, lie knew Unit people In Chicago
actually died of starvation, and the circum
stances were published In the city papers. There
was no attention whatever paid to the ventila
tion of shops, and the* printing-oillccs
were In that respect deplorable. .Mr.
Streeter thought Uiat the recent improvements
in machinery was an tujurv to working
men. ilo believed tho chief cause of
the present condition of things In Chicago
was the hcartlessncss of the aristocratic classes,
who did not give the laboring classes os much
tbouglit as they did the heathen tn India. They
were totally Indifferent to their welfare and
comfort. The newspapers catered to tho
wealthy classes, who advertised, and were op
posed to the working classes. Tho way to pre
vent machinery from Injuring the workingman
would be to have the Government own it, and
operate It, and employ and pay the men. Thus
the men would have the profits earned by tho
machine. Another remedy was eight hours 1
labor for a day’s work, compulsory education, a
repeal of the laws puuisblng those engaged in
strikes, and other remedies suggested in Uio
platform of the Socialist party seriatim.
p. u. m’logak
next took the stand. Mr. McLogan is a printer
by trade. He elated that (he wages of his crait
had been reduced at least 50 per cent from what
they were in 18712. He Oellevcd a remedy Would
be effected by enforcing the eight-hour system.
“Would you have the employers par \ou ten
hours* pay for eight hours’ world ” asked Mr.
Mr. McLogan said It was his opinion and the
opinion, ho thought, of all of his class that the
workingmen should receive eight hours’ pav for
eight hours* work. The abolition of prison
labor was one of evils which the labor
ing men ot Chicago hud to contend with. Hu
said tho market was overstocked with tabor,
and that the progress of machinery during the
last twenty tears had been such that many men
hud been thrown upon the market. Ho had
never beard the word “tramp” used In. this
country prior to 18?3. He was In lavor of the
Homestead law ami la favor of the Government
furnishing the citizen the means of going to
work. Mr. McLogan thought If the currency of
the country was inllatcd the condition of’the
workingmen would bo nmeb improved.
MIL C. M’AULIPK,
a printer, made a statement to the Committee
la which ho claimed that machinery was at
present a curse to the workingmen. The time
would come when it would bo a blessing to
mankind. When a machine became a monopoly
It was un Injury to the poor man.
