Atlanta. Oct. 17.?The American
1 tankers* Association elected ollicers
to-.luv. E. H. Pullen, ot New Vork, was
chosen president anil It. .) Lowrey. of
Atlanta, was made vice-president. The
features t..-<iuy were th?. speeches
made by \Y. I* St. John, of Now York,
ami Edward Atkinson, of Boston.
Mr. st. .lohn made a strong argu?
ment for a double standard and tin- op?
ening of tie- minis again to sliver. Ho
is one of the f, \v silver men of the as?
sociation. Mr. Atkinson spoke first as
Mr Atkinson said lie thought exist?
ing laws wer.- adequate, and that as tim?
pani.- lias BUtllced, public opinion will
sustain effective action.
??The true on.- is a simple ami ready
one." In- concluded. "The Treasury
may provide Itself with gold by the sale
of bonds, so as to enable It in co-opera
lloti with the national banks to meet
any possible demand <>f the people for
tin- redemption of Governments notes
as fast as they are presented. In that
event, If the volume of paper money Is
redundant, It will be reduced by re?
demption; if it is not redundant it will
continue in circulation. Three sales of
bonds have been made with this view,
but tin- 11 rat two sales did not accom?
plish the purp. so. because tin- notes re?
deemed on th.. one hand were paid out
on th,. other, enusjnc tin- deficiency In
the public revenue. The revenue being
now equal t?> the expenditure:;, notes
which are presented for payment in coin
are not und cannot reissued, even It'
they are not cancelled. They are and
must lie pill aside subject to future
cancellation Whenever authority there
t i shall I-.- given by Cottgri ss. A be?
ginning has. therefore, been made in
the only adequate and permanent
method of removing our present evil
monetary systyh by redeeming the
excess ol Government hates without re

lege, but the duty ,.f (he National banks

? ?I tin- Treasury; in other words, the
Treasury is but one of the National
hanks of Issue, and being tin- bank of
largest Issue upon its absolut., solvency
and power to meet every demand fur
prompt redemption rests not only it>,
? ?wit credit, but that of all th.- National
hanks alike! If the hanks cannot trust
the Treasury what is their own credit
worth? If they ?:.? not i.I their gold
with the gold ill the Tr? a.-tuy s.. as t
protect the nation's credit and disnstei
ehsties, what are the securities worth
and what would their own loss hei
Their Interests are inseparable und n
seems to me that National hank ofllcerr
who tio not recognise this fact ami a. t
upon it are strangely I.lind to their own
duties, t.. their own stockholders ami
to the public. M
"It Is time in my Judgment for some
one lo say plainly the national hanks
have not boon free from blame in these
troubled tithes, They now have the
opportunity lo justify their title <?!
national, and If I hey fail to meet it
Ihey should I..- deprived of that tltloj
"It is tint.- that this ample reserve
of gold should h.- so used as to sustain
the trousury. in fact, tie- withholdingI
of this gold by banks Is a potent
itattse of the distrust <>r the ability of'
tin- treasury to maintain gold pay?
Mr. St. .lohn, who Is president of the!
Mercantile National Hank. New Vork,
replying to Mr. Atkinson, said that lie
cording to Mr. Atkinson, current ah
Ingnolsma as to money an- duo to a dis?
tinctly different school (.f tlnance. Mr.
St John calls one tin- speculative, or
uchool of plausibility, and says he is a
pupil of th.- historical pchool. ami says
that lump gold and gold colli are equiv?
alents as Mr. Atkinson says: hut adds
thai the reason is ihe law which grants
gold the right of conversion into coin
lie remarked on Mr. Atkinson's demand
tor the t. p.-a! of legal tenders laws that
It would h-ave coiuis in- power to en?
force contracts, because thew would
lack authority to determine what is
money. Ho also Raid that Holland put
the scheme to the lest by net of lsT-l and
the gold coins wore wit lean the legal
tender function would nol circulate as
money. H<- condemned Mr. Atkinson's
charge of Injustice to the creditor In
granting tin- debtor the option ,.f coins
with which to |ay. and declared that
th.- debtor choosing th.- more abundant
gives value to It* by use. and deprived
the scarce of value to thnt extent by
lack "f use. Th. operation in many ami
large transactions, said he. is to reduce
the value of the scarce, while enlarg?
ing the value of tin- aim: dailt, with a
constant attraction of two t>> parity as

as when It was only six limes the
annual production of cold, and claimed
lo have answered Shaw's history of cur?
rency on these points. Mr. st. .lohn
Faid ho thought the United States had
a sufficient use for inoncv 'to do what
France could do. lie resented the sug?
gestion of a silver Lasts in the United
States as a result of reopening the
mints to silver, hut nald that If the sil?
ver basis ensues it .tnnv enable us to
duplicate the experience of India. In?
da..-- foreign commerce, according to
Mr. St. .lohn, establishes a credit bai

"There is no foundation for su< h

no .-iteii assertions, either privately or

Th- Governor talked pleasantly Put
drnily, und the Impression ho left was
that In- meant every word he said, and
that unless something Intervenes to

martial law. He paid Judge Du file a
high compliment, saying- "He st.I

'Venerable Hrother Health and Apou
We have learned that in the United
States 'if America eon volitions are some
tines loll in which people assemble
pronilseuo'isly. Catholics, as well as
thus.- of o'.iiur denominations, to treat

ple is animated mure zealously from
duj to day Uut although these pro
mlscuous conventions have unto this
duj been tolerated with prudent sllenoe
it would nevertheless seem advisable
that the Catholics should hold their con
ventlona separately, and that lest the
utility of these conventions should
result simply to their own benefit, they
might be culled with this understanding,
that admittance should bo open to ail;
also io those who arc outside of the
Catholic church. Whilst we consider,
it Im umbenl upon out Apostolic oftlce,
Venerable Hrother, to bring this to
your attention, wo arc also pleased to
porinlt bj out recommendations tho
practice of the Paulist Pathers, who
prudently think nt to speak publicly
to our dissenting brethren, both In order
t'i explain Catholic doctrine and to an?
swer any objections presented against
"If ever) Bishop in his own dloceso
will promote this practice and a fre
