W EDNESDAY, SEPT., 29, 1875.
Itelowwe print n letter from ex-Sec-
rctary of the Treasury, McCoi.ucn,
Upon the financial question, which ap
peared in the New York Tribune.
Hhall wc have more Greenbacks is the
question of the hour. Upon this issue
the political panics are in a sad mud
die. In New York,lwth parties declare
f jr hard money, in Ohio and Pcniisyl
vania, Democratic conventions declare
for inflation.
If the money question becomes the
main issue, it must result that parties
will reorganize, for of both parties
there are many who are for hard mon
ey, many for more money of any kind,
and many who have no opinion about
the matter at all. It strikes us that
we need something to get money with
corn, wheat and pork and that in
pome way our currency must come to a
par with gold. As to the best ways
and means to accomplish this end, wc
shall hare more to say hereafter. In
the meantime, wc commend the letter
alluded to, to the careful jieriisal of all
intelligent and thinking readers.
To the Editor of the Tribune.
Sir: A few days ago I asked a gentle
man or large experience and careful ob
servation a friend of the United States
when wc had Tew friends among tlie
leading men of England "When elinll
wc be able to borrow at four per cent for
the purpose of retiring our six per cent
Government bonds?"
"When," replied he, "you get back to
specie payments. Everything hinges up
on that. I agree with you that the cred
it of your Government ought to be equal,
if not superior to that of any Government
in the world, and it will be when you
come to your senses upon the question 01
the currency. Should the iiitlauonisle
succeed in their efforts to increase tin
circulation of irredeemable legal tendei
notes, you will not only be unable to
place your four per coma cither at homi
er in Europe, but you will lit). I even tlit
holders of your riven (for which there U
now an active demand ut a premium) dis
posed to get lid ol them aa speedily &r
possible. If tbe inlla tiouists get the con
trol of your legislation ami renew tin
old and foolish experiment of making,
money plentitul by the use of the print
ing press, the credit of your great country
will kink to the Iee! o! that of Egypt 01
This opinion, which I have given in
very nearly the language of the gentle
man who expressed it, is the prevailing
eentimtnt on this eidc of the Atlantic
There is not an intelligent man in all
Europe who has given intention to tin
subject who does not wonder at the in
fatuation, if it be not something mori
than infatuation, of the advocate of ai.
irredeemable currency in the United
States,whodoes not condemn the irrcsolu
tion of most of those who claim to be the
friend of a sound currency. There is in
fact more danger to be npprehended from
the timidity of many who are ranked on
the side of specie, than from the undis
guised action ot those who favor further
issues of Government notes. Every re
jecting and intelligent mind must per
ceive that a further depreciation of tliusi
now iu circulation, an increase of finan
cial trouble, and ultimate repudiation;
but the fatal results of "the let alone"
policy are not so apparent, An immense
majority of our leading politicians of all
parties are sound in theory, but they
seem to lack nerve. They favor a return
to specie pwymeots, but they do not saj
how this is to be effected. Thejr 6eem to
be afiad of the bugbear of contraction as
if a return to the true measure of value
would affect values. They eeein blind to
the self-evident proposition that there
will be no real contraction if the purchas
ing power of the currency is increased
proportionately with a reduction of its
volume. Unless some decided and prac
tical measures are put into actual opera
tions of the restoration of the specie
standard, we shall go on as wc have been
going for some years past, during which
every day has made a return to the paths
of safety and real prosperity more dif
ficult. Let us look for a moment at the
causes of the existing embarrassments
and prostration in tbe United States, and
then consider some of the remedies which
have been suggested.
First, the cause. That there is great
etngnation in all or nearly all branches
of enterprise and industry in the United
States, that our manufacturers arc sadly
depressed, that very few of our railroads
are yielding fair return on their actual
cost, while a large part of them are una
ble to pay the interest on their bonds;
that our shipping interests have to de
clined, that the United States, which a
quarter of a century ago i-eemed in a fair
way to become the first in maritime pow
ers, is now ndt even to be ranked
among second-class nations in the foreign
carrying trade; that our counties, cities,
and ton-ns ate so "Seriously in debt that
tax-paycre nrc looking to unlawful niea.
ures for relief, and that for some years
past we, as people, have been so rxtrava
Ktnt ami wasteful that wr have become a
byword throughout Europe, are farts that
cannot be denied nor dipguied. Now,
while this depression of our manufacture's
this unprofitableness of our railroads, this
decline -of our merchant' marine, his
frightful accumulation of municipal in
debtedness, this extravagance and waste
fulness cannot be attributed exclusively
to a redundant currency, they can in a
great measure be traced to it. Other
causes, it is true, have to some extent as
sisted in producing the trouble in which
we are involved; but if we had been on a
specie basis, this trouble would have
been small in comparison to what it is.
Had there been no over-emission of pa
per money, there would have been depres-
hion in trade nnd manufactures, but we
should not have been overwhelmed as
we have been with debt and bankruptcy.
We should have felt the effect of over
production, as Great Britain is feeling it.
Enormous as has been the increase of
consumption in civilized nations within
the last 20 years, it has not kept pace
with production. The wonderful inven
tions in machinery, the revolution cflec
ted by steam power, and the reduction of
time in international exchanges, have
iireatly disturbed old economic laws.
Production has been immensely stimu
lated by forces which were not under
tood, or at least were not utilized, un
til long after the commencement of the
present century, the result of which has
been over-production, reaction, depres
siou, and these are felt in the greatest
measures in those countries in which
these forces have been most actively in
use. There are very few branches of
manufacturing in Great Britain, the
greatest manufacturing nation in the
world, which are now in a prosperous
tate, simply because there has been
more goods manufactured than there is
a present demand for. The same is true
in the United States. Why, let me ask,
arc so many of our iron foundries idle?
Why are our woolen and cotton mills
running on half time? Why are our lum
ber yards overstocked? Why is there so
little activity in shipbuilding? Why are
mr railroads o unprofitable, and why
ire so many thousands of laborers out of
employinont? Certainly not for want of
money, for money, paper money, ns
never so abundant or eorhcap, nnd the
same would be true of real money if it
had not been driven out of circulation by
the inferior currency. Ask our iron man
ufacturers why their forges nrc not in
full operation; the managers of our wool,
-n and cotton mills, why their works are
partially suspended; our lumber men,
why stocks have accumulated on their
liands; our shipbuilders, why they arc
not building more ships; our railroad
'iicn, why their railroads are not earning
more money, and see if the answers are
iot of thesame tenor that manufactures
nave outstripped demand, anal there is
nore lumber tliau building, more ships
.hnn freight, more railroads than Ira (Tic,
more laborers than work. I do not be-
ievc that one sensible man among all
these classes of producers and dealers
can be found who will attribute the ex
isting depression to a scarcity of money.
If nich are the facts, what judgment
ihould be pronounced upon those who,
through wilful blindness, or for party
purposes, or for selfish ends, declaim, be
fore laborers suffering from want of em
ployment, against the oppression of cap
italists, and urge them to demand more
currency, as an antidote for their misfor
tune CAUSES OF TnK financial DErnsasioy.
I have said that great depression in
trade and manufactures exist in Great
Britain as well as in the United states,
but there is a marked contrast in the real
condition of the two countries. While the
existing depression is felt, and se
verely, by the manufacturers and deal
ers in Great Britain, the general state ot
the country is healthy. Land was never
so high or so salable as now; the traffic
upon English railroads was never so
large, and notwithstanding a reductiou of
taxes, the revenues of the Government
are steadily increasing; municipal indebt
edness is comp&ritavely unknown; there
is no general complaint of taxation, and
the spirit of the people is stroHg and buoy
ant. There have been heavy failures,
and fearful losses have been sustained by
reason of injudicious investments; but the
nation is, as a whole, in a satisfactory fi
nancial state. Now I need not ask if the
reverse of this is not true of the United
State?. The question, then, to be consid
ered is, to what, in addition to over-pro
duction, is the prostration of a country so
nbundant in resources, with a population
so intelligent and vigorous as ours, attrib
utable? Is it not, first, to our civil war?
Secondly, to our redundant and vicious
currency? Thirdly, to injudicious taxa
tion? Let us dwell for a moment upon
the firet two leaving the third for con
sideration at some future day.
First: The War. Everybody knows
that wars are terribly destructive of prop
erty as well as life, and the civil wars are
especially so. The war between the Gov
ernment and the Southern States was one
of the most exhausting that has ever been
waged. During the continuance of this
war, everything was in demand. The
manufacture of war implements, the pro
duction of food for the support of the ar
mies, necessarily involved an advance in
prices, and gave a stimulus to industry
which seemed to the cursory observer like
national prosperity. Never were wases
fo high, never were fortunes so suddenly
made, never were a people so intoxicated
by deceptive appearances. That this
prosperity was'delusive' is now apparent,
but it did not become apparent until after
the crisis of 1873, for during the war the
Government, to meet its enormous erpen.
ditures, not only issued a vast amount of
its interest-hearing obligations, but it
made frr.-e.l loans in the form of promis
sory notes, and declared these notes to be
lawful money.
Secondly: A Jlcdundant and Hcious
Currtney. Redundant, because when the
war terminated there was no legitimate de
mand for so large a circulating medium;
vicious, because it substituted a legal but
artificial measure of value for the true
measure, thereby violating the higher law
which makes gold and silver the standard
a law which has never yet been viola
ted without commercial disturbance, nor,
if the violation was long continued, with
out national disaster.
That the legal tender notes and the
notes of the National banks made the cir
culating medium redundant is proved by
the artificial prices they created and sus
tained, by their great depreciation, and
by the uses that have been made of them.
Their viciousness is made manifest by the
facts that they were and are irredeemable;
that they have familiarized the people
with dishonored obligations which they
have been and are compelled to treat as
money; that they were and continue to be
constantly fluctuating in value, making
business gambling, and business men
gamblers. That an irredeemable current
cy is a tax upon industry and n fruitful
source of demoralization requires noargu
ment to establish. If the truth could be
arrived at, it would be discovered that de
preciated paper money has been a heavier
burden upon the industrial and producing
classes of the United States than all the
taxes, direct and indirect, to which they
have been subjected, and that it has done
more to debase and corrupt the public
sentiment than all other causes combined
The substitution of inconvertible notes for
coin, is an old game of distressed mon
archies. It has frequently been resorted
to by bankrupt nations, and always with
the same disastrous results. It was re
sorted to by the United States, under the
pressure of what seemed to be a great
emergency. That it should be adhered to
so long after the supposed emergency had
ceaed nnd still have intelligent nnd hon
est advocates is difficult of explanation, in
view of the fact that over-issues of paper
money have been the cause of every fi
nancial crisis, every deep-rooted financial
disorder, that has occurred in the United
States. Let ua glance at our previous ex
No one, I admit, can say with any
precision how much currency is required
in a country like ours for legitimate busi
ness, but th are are always indications of
an execs) which cannot be mistaken
Between 1S30 and 1837 it was indicated
by speculation in wild lands and town
lots, by large importations, expanded
credit, and visionary schemes of internal
improvements. Between 1843 and 1837,
by extraordinary activity in trade the
reaction from a long period of stagnation,
and another unhealthy expansion of tho
credit system. From ISO! to 1S73, by n
continuance of the high prices which
were unavoidable during the war, by cx
pendatnres, by gambling of all descrip
tions, by a mania of sudden enrichment,
and by imprudent outlays in railroads.
There has never been, I again remark, a
financial crisis in the United States which
cannot be unmistakably traced to exces
sive issues of paper money. The east
ing financial malady is wider spread, and
deeper rooted tbnn any which has pre
ceded it, because the propelling cause has
been greater. If it were only bank notes
we had to deal with, the main cause of
our troubles would soon be removed, for
the people would not long tolerate irre
deemable bank notes. Unfortunately wc
have a currency issued by the Govern
ment which, in opposition to all econo
mic laws, and in disregard of the experi
ence of other nations, has been made
lawful money, which has so distorted the
public vision and so depraved the public
judgment that former hard-money men
have become its defenders, a currency
which has led such men as Gov. Allen,
of Ohio, to pronounce specie payment an
ideally a "barren ideally." There
ought not to be much difference in senti
ment among fair-minded men in regard to
the cause of our embarrassments and
prostrations. Tbe important question to
be settled, and the difficult one, is what is
the remedy for them? This question 1
propose to consider in my next.
