SE rETARY ',SHAW PREPARE8
FO- .N' iE'IMoeRGNCYm . '
No- Causie O Alarhn, But Take `Stieps
to insure Abundance of
Free Money.
Washington, Sept. 14.--Secetary
Shaw ,has issued, the following state
ment:
, Secretary Shaw has made. arrange
ments to release Labbutt:..$4,000,000 of,
the treasury holdirngs. He has had'. a
list prepared of. those national banks
throughout tnu" country which held
free or plegedgd bonds at th, date of.
their last report 'and. .hae made- in
quiry for othets.' Aftei' tniting allow
ance for' changed conditiohs .iince the
last report he expects this will re
lease at least $4,000,000.
He has seit notice to` iall Such that
if they' will send wtheR0. bonds -tothe
treasurer of the United States ip sums
of $50,000 or more they will be desig
i ated a: tenimp ..'d i ~i ~'i4
the face value of the' onds will be
deposited with them to the credit of
the treasurer of the United States.
He has pursued thfis course in prefer
ence to designating depositories in
thle ordinary way, which compels them
to buy bonds, in the market at a- large
.premium, thus paying eant more for
the bonds than they get from tha
government. ,The . ustoms receipts
are extremely heavy at this season of
the year, and the cash balance of the
treasurer has been gradually increas
ing.
. Anticipates October Interelt. ,
He' has also 'Gecided to aanticipate
the October interet, amounting to
about $4,200,000, and with this in
view crders have been issued to the
various sub-treasuries to cash such
coupons as may be-presented and the
treasurer -of the United States has
been instructed to mail checks for
interest on the registered bonds. All
this was decided upon some days ago
and' letters 'and telegrams prepared
for today.
The secretary sees in present con
ditions no occasion for aiatm. He
calls attention to the' fact that there
is no evidence of a currency famine
present or prospective, elsewhere than
in Ne# York, apd. even there the rate
is not high for commercial paper, and
for, commercial paper he has the
;greater solicitude. He is well satis
fled with his .efforts to increase the
circulation which he decided upon in
the early summer when present con
ditions were visible and has been pre
paring to meet an gmergency-wvhich
he does 'not. expect, but which 'he
thinks 'it is: wise to provide against.
Thql f V .he has 'made re.tuests only
-of such banks as' hold large deposits
and 'have .,.ry limited circulation; and
he" li' not asking these to increase to
the' maximum; nor to increase at all
for t~ie present. He 'does not desire
to force the banks intd the market to
buy hbonds at'a rate higher than the
government is williig to pay. He
does desire to make tpe best possible
use' of the free bonds now held by
the banks.
Incidentally, he likes *t encourage
-banks to, hold free bonds during the
didl :months, belleving it is much bet
ter, to hold bonds that will yield one=
•half of 1. per cent even than to make
new loans at 2 . per cent. Therefore,
he is' giviing banks that hold these
free bonds an opportunity to use them.
to most excellent advantage. This
method, if pursuqd by the banks,
would give a slight 1element of elasn
ticity to our ogerwise inelastic cur
rency -system.'
- dPOititon Explafn.gd in Ltter.
His positiop as, -reards increasing
circulation is' perhaps= best expressed
in as letter 'whiche he iecently wrote to
ai banke? Who 4 4d been- already buy
;in- bondsi ed which rhe has consent
e tnige public.' It is as follows:
