What is Legal
"What is legal tender?"
The query came from a man who
had become involved in a dispute over
an account. The matter was to be set
tled in court, and the man's lawyer
told him formally to offer the creditor
the amount due "in legal tender."
When he went to make the proffer he
began to have doubts of just what legal
tender was, and be was half ashamed
to ask his lawyer. His banker thought
a moment, then he said:
"Now, really, that's a technical ques
tion, and I haven't the answer right at
the end of my tongue. But just a min
ute and I'll get it for you."
He touched an electric buzzer and a
boy answered.
"Tell Mr. Smith to come here," said
the cashier. Then to his visitor: "He'll
know, all right. Smith's our right
hand man when it comes to technical
questions. Funny, though, that I don't
know just what legal tender is. He
makes change for those who have cus
toms duties to pay. He'll know all
Smith appeared.
"Smith, what is legal tender?" asked
the cashier.
"Legal! tender!" he said. "Why, le
gal tender is—is anything but national
bank notes, and I think—"
"You think! Good gracious alive,
man! I thought you knew." This from
the cashier. "Look It up and let's both
memorize it."
Smith went to look it up. In the
meantime the cashier found among
some books the national bank act of
"Here it is," he said. He read a para
graph which defined legal tender as
"Gold coin is legal tender for its
nominal value when not below the lim
it of tolerance in weight when below
that limit it is legal tender in propor
tion to its weight. Standard silver dol
lars and treasury notes of 1890 are le
gal tender for all debts, public and pri
vate, except where otherwise expressly
stipulated in the contract. Subsidiary
silver is legal tender to the extent of
$10 minor coins to the extent of 25
cents and United States notes for all
debts, public and private, except du
ties on imports and interest on the
public debt. Gold certificates, silver
certificates and national bank notes
are non-legal tender money. Both
kinds of certificates, however, are re
ceivable for all public dues except du
ties on imports, and may be paid out
for all public dues except interest on
the public debt."
"There you are," said the cashier.
"Tells it all in a nutshell. See?"
"No, I guess I don't," said the anx
ious inquirer. "I'll just let my lawyer
tender this legal tender for me."

Baltimore, Md., Feb. 22.—Interest
ing exercises were held today in com
memoration of the thirty-first anni
versary of the founding of John Hop
kins University. The principal ad
dress was delivered by Dr. Henry S.
Prltchett, president of the Carnegie
Foundation for the Advancement of
The following is the address of Mr.
Joaquim Nabuco, ambassador from
Brazil, delivered at Buffalo on the
night of February 20th, before the
Liberal club of that city.
You may be sure I fully realize
what a distinction it is for me to be
in the place where I find myself to
night, but I have read the names ot
those who have addressed you since
your foundation and I can not help
fearing the ordeal of having my name
added to that list. I could not thank
you enough for this great opportunity
it shows clearly enough your interest
in the work of bringing together the
American republics. That looks to
me as a hopeful sign. I take it as
announcing that the only insurmount
able obstacle to that work, which
would be indifference on the part of
this country begins to give place to
a different frame of mind. National
indifference towards anything that re
sembles a foreign policy can be easily
understood on your part inter-state
politics seems here as sufficient as
inter-state trade you are a world by
yourselves, but even the .universe is
interdependent, and now that, through
repeated reflex movements, the politi
cal interdependence of our globe is
more keenly felt everywhere, in Eng
land as in Japan, in Germany or
France as much as in China or Per
sia. it is natural also that this na
tion show signs of awaking to the
consequences of her position in the
American system. I am glad your
great city is one of the first to ac
knowledge the importance of the new
movement and that you called upon
me to speak on the lessons and pro
phesies of the third Panamerican con
Mr. Boot
As its president all I can tell you
is that its surface was as smooth as
possible, but your distinguished fellow
citizen, Mr. Buchanan, the head- of the
American delegation, who so ably and
silently worked in the recess of the
committees, could tell you, I feel sure,
that the depths were as still as the
surface. To that quiet nothing has
contributed more than the attitude ot
the secretary of state, as the head of
the Washington Panamerican board,
when the plans for the meeting'were
laid out, and than his personal' visit
to the seat of the conference and to
other South American capitals. Mr.
Root was Indeed the ideal representa
tive this country could send on such
a mission. -His sincerity, his earnest
ness, his love of equity, his high-mind
edness, his considerateness, together
with his powerful intellect, and with
what, in the broader geographical
sense of the word, can be called his
genuine Americanism, a most gener
ous sympathy with all the nations of
our continent, could not fall to create
among them an impression of confi
dence likely to last long after his
passage. He went to us animated
with the spirit of a Blaine, yet speak
ing the language of a Marshall. His
words were received everywhere as
political' oracles, studied as constitu
tional lessons on the nature and the
working of the institutions we all
copied from you. With his presence
our nations well realized that your
secretaries of state are still cast on
the same mould as in the times of
the Jeffersons, the Monroes, the Web
sters and the Clays. That above all
has assured the success of the Rio
United America Deliberating in Com
What chiefly characterized it was
the friendly intercourse established
between the great sections of our con
tinent, which seemed to meet at the
two first conferences under the sense
of some danger to come from asso
ciating together. President Roose
velt's message has already accentuat
ed that difference, and this is the first
lesson of the Rio meeting. We may
feel sure that henceforth each new
celebration of those American festi
vals will more and more develop the
sentiment, the instinct, of continental
confraternity. The repeated assem
bling of our nations will force them
to exchange their views, to smooth
away their mutual difficulties, to real
ize more vividly their natural kinship.
The organ was created in advance of
the feeling it was destined to evolve,
but now it is evolving it. Mr. Root
completed Mr. Blaine, he converted
the dream into a reality. In- every
creation there is of necessity much

Joaquim Nabuco Believes South American Republics Should
be Drawn in Close Union With the
United States,
•hat remains hidden. The founders
are only beginners. Certainly in this
case the statesmen who conceived it
hardly imagined that the little bureau
devised at its origin only for the dis
tribuRon of information on the pro
gress of the American republics was
to become such a strong political bond
between them. Yet the diplomatic re
presentatives of the American coun
tries could not meet regularly every
month in the state department under
the presidency of the secretary, of
state without feeling and imparting
to the world the impression of a unit
ed America deliberating in common.
That impression will now necessarily
increase a hundred fold with the mag
nificent gift of Mr. Carnegie, enabling
us to raise in Washington a worthy
abode for the permanent council of
the American nations. That cannot
fail to impress all of them with a
greater sense of the affinities that
make already of all America in many
respects a single political body.
Panamericanism a Civilizing Force.
Well, and this is another of the les
sons and prophecies of Panamerican
ism however limited the responsi
bility of each associated nation, we
could not form an international union
without being bound to greater mu
tual forbearance, to mutual peace, and
without being more and more perme
ated by the influences which prove
to be the noblest around each of us.,
I have a foreign friend now out of
the diplomatic service who thought
once of writing a book on Latin Amer
ica to be called "The Revolutionary
Continent" I do not know if he se
cured the copyright for the title, but
I think it would look now an anti
quated one. It would not be 20th
century's history. The right of revo
lution looks more and more every day
as reasonable a claim as that of a
child who insisteg for tihe absolute
freedom of entering into convulsions.
Revolution as a permanent state is
a very different thing from revolu
tions Incident to opposed evolution.
The working together of the Ameri
can republics will give to the best
elements they contain permanent as
cendency over the revolutionary cells,
which in order to survive need keep
ing up the fermentation. The remedy
for the state of things which keeps
revolution alive and in many cases
would justify it, were it not incapable
of creating order and liberty, is pub
licity and association, for foreign capi
tal and immigration, the policy of
Panamericanism is a most potent fac
tor, so much so that Panamericanism
can be pronounced the certain cure
of the old evils among Ajnerican re
publics, as they all arose from seclu
sion and exclusiveness. No nation in
the full tide of Panamericanism, wish
ing to join in all its extensions, to
share its destinies, could grow in Its
blood the germs of such political can
cers as revolution and tyranny. In
that direction one may look forward
with great confidence to the develop
ment of Panamericanism. I for my
self see in it that Liberal league of
the continent, whose .creation I always
considered the only means of bring
ing all our countries to a same level
of civilization and order. I thus echo
here agait^ with the most wishful hope
the noble words of Mr. Root before
the Rio conference: "Let us unite in
creating and maintaining and making
effective an ail-American public opin
ion, whose power shall Influence in
ternational conduct and prevent in
ternational wrong, bring us ever near
er to the perfection of ordered liber
ty." That I believe is the soul of Pan
americanism, its true and complete
measure, when fully developed.
Panamericanism and Internecine Wars
I will point to one lesson and
prophecy more, as in anoither respect
also you can see the work that has
been accomplished. Wars between
American republics lie already under
a general interdict that makes at least
the gratuitous ones impossible. When
ever a government has the means to
prevent two nations from running in
to war, if that action is disinterest
edly exercised and if it does not cre
ate a moral wrong against one of the
disputants, does not cripple her na
tional destiny, the world always ap
proves of the friendly offices being
offered, of earnest pressure being ap
plied, in the interest of peace, while
within a short time both the casual
would-be belligerents acknowledge
their depth of gratitude to the party
that avoided bloodshed. Puiamerican-
»V"? 9
ism already has 'begun to remove from
our continent the danger of interne
cine war, as through the Monroe doc
trine it has averted for it, with one
or two exceptions only, during nearly
a hundred years the danger of con
flicts with Europe.
The Example of the United States.
You asked me to speak of the les
sons and prophecies of the recent Pan
american conference, and I have put
before you the brightest points I see
in the future of our union. I did not
suggest the word prophecies you
chose it for me, perhaps, I am afraid,
on the ^principle that old people see
better at a distance. Dante in his
poem makes those who saw much in
advance of their time look and walk
backwards. It is not only in after
life that prophets pass through that
change, we see every day eminent men
receding in the same retrograde man
ner from their bold prophecies but
those who prophecy peace and good
will among men, even if their present
outlook proves false, need not fear
having to look and to walk backwards
in the road of human destiny. Still
the future of Panamericanism, under
its present voluntary, spontaneous,
fcven effusive form, depends above all
on the permanency of the' spirit now
ruling the governing sphere of this
country that is a spirit of sympathy
towards the other republics, a senti
ment which combines your national
chivalrousness with your sense of con
tinental kinship. No greater example
of it could be pointed out than that
of your sitting together with our re
publics at a council where your vote
is every day neutralized by one of
theirs. I call that an ambition of
building for the future on the most
perfect level, of bringing about be
tween us that highest kind of mutual
good-will, which the Greek philoso
pher so beautifully called unanimity,
being of one mind.
All Washington's Children.
Gentlemen, It Is a commanding po
sition that which you occupy in the
world, but more than of the respect
of the strongest you may feel proud
of the confidence with which the na
tions of this continent cluster around
you. Last year I had the honor to
speak at Grand Rapids, near, the shore
of another of your lakes, on Lincoln's
day this time I was asked to address
you on Washington's day. I regret
that the date had to be changed, but
any day In your year Is appropriate
to place a great cause under Wash
ington's patronage. No greater glory
could be conceived than his of having
resuscitated' in the modern world the
tradition of national rulers, magis
trates, not masters, of the people
which since the days of Cicero had
entirely disappeared for nearly two
thousand years. It is Washington
who at tlhe end of the XVIII century
opens the second Renaissance, that of
freedom, and more fortunate than the
great artists of the Italian Renais
sance, who could not equal the mas
terpieces they copied, he surpassed
his great models by making of modern
liberty a much loftier structure than
any that could be raised on the nar
row foundations of ancient democra
cy. He thus became the founder of
the modern political era he breath
ed the spirit of freedom upon all our
continent. In that respect we, the
peoples of America, are all as much
Washington's children as we are
Columbus' children. These are the
two figures that ought to stand in
Washington at the entrance of our
future "Hall of American Peace, to
keep clear in our minds the recollec
tion of a common inheritance and the
hope of a common destiny.
I rejoice, therefore, in seeing that
you feel interested in the work Presi
dent Roosevelt has committed to Mr.
Root, and that you hall the future for
which we are working together, in
spite of receding indifference on one
side and of defeated prejudices, here
and there, on another. To that fu
ture I raise my glass hoping that all
our nations will bring to the seeding
of the new policy the heartiness nec
essary at this tentative period to in
sure its full growth throughout the
American continent.
