NOT QUANTITY BUT QUALITY
Are the Free Silver Men in the Association, W, P. ST. JOHN OF NEW YORK Ma’lc a Very Strong Argument for the Double Standard. INDIA ON A PURELY SILVER GASIS Has Bean Able to Draw $55,000,000 of Sil ver anil $25,000,000 ot' Gold Front tho Trading World-OUier Inter- / rating Points Made. A Halt la. Oct. 17.—The American Bank ers' association elected officers today. K. H. Pullen of New York was chosen presi dent at)d B. J. i-owr.v of Atlanta was made first vice-president. The features today were the speeches of W. P. St. John of New York and Edward Atkinson of Boston. Mr. St. ' John made a strong argument for a double standard and the opening of the mints again to sil ver. He is one of the few silver men in the association. Mr. Atkinson opened the discussion by reading a paper upon practical sugges tions for a reform of the monetary sys tem. The document was In the nature of a suggestion for the appointment of a committee or committees to co-operate with the executive department of the gov ernment, supplemented by practical hints for attaining the objects aimed at. The speaker said: • I need not say that until some way is found under existing laws for the with drawal by the government of whatever excess of legal tender notes there are now in forced circulation, or until con gress shall enact laws to that end if pres ent laws will not permit the secretary to act, our efforts to raise a monetary sys tem will fall. In this there can be no such operation between the banks and treasury as I hope for, and each class ot' money corporations must protect itself until through recurring panics and finan cial crises public opinion is brought to the peril of compelling congress to act." He thought existing laws were inade quate and as one panic has sufficed pub lic .opinion will sustain effective action. "Tile true way out is a simple and ready one," he concluded. "The treasury may provide Itself with gold by the sale ot bonds, so as to enable it, in co-oper ation with the banks, to meet any possi ble demand of the people for the redemp tion of government notes as fast as they are reported. In that event, if the volume of paper money is redundant, it will be reduced by redemption; If it is not redun dant It will continue in circulation. Three sale9 of bonds have been made with this view, but the iirst two sales did not accomplish the purpose, because the notes redeemed on one hand were paid out on the other to meet the deficiency in the public revenue. The third sale has partially accomplished its purpose, but not adequately. The revenue being now equal to the expenditures, notes which arc presented for payment in coin are not and cannot be reissued, even if they are not cancelled. There are and must be put aside subject to future cancellation ■whenever -authority thereto shall be giv en by congress. A beginning has there fore been made in the only adequate and permanent method of relieving our pres ent evil money system by redeeming the excess of government notes without re Issue. , „ "1 hold that it is not only the privilege but the duty of the national banks to place all their gold at the command of the secretary; In other words, the secre tary Is but one of the national banks of Issue, and being the bank of the largest Issue upon Its absolute solvency and pow er to meet every demand for prompt re demption rests not only Its own credit, but that of all the national banks alike. If the banks cannot trust the treasury ■what Is their own credit worth? If they do not pool their gold with the gold in the treasury so as to protect the nation's credit, and disaster ensues, what are their securities worth and what will be their own loss? Their interests are in separable and it seems to me that na tional hank officials who do not recog nize this fact and act upon it arc strange ly hliml to their own duties to their own stockholders and to the public. • It is. in my judgment, for some one to say plainly that the national bank* have not been free from blame in these troubled times. Now they have the op portunity to justify their title of nation al, and if they fail to meet it they should be deprived of that title.” Air. SI. joni), WUU in INC jiicpiucih the Mercantile National bank, New * York, replying; to Mr. Atkinson, said: Aeeordln to Mr. Atkinson current antagonisms as to money are due to dis tinctly different schools of finance. Mr. St John calls one the speculative, or school of plausibility, and says he is a pupil of the historical school. Says that lump gold and gold coin are equivalents, as Mr. Atkinson says, hut adds that the reason is the law which grants gold the right of conversion into coin. He re marked on Mr. Atkinson's demand for the repeal of legal tender laws that It would leave the courts no power to en force contracts, because they would lack authority to determine what is money. He also said that Holland put the scheme to' test by the act of 1847, and the gold coins that were without the legal tender function would not circulate as money. He condemned Mr. Atkinson’s charge of Injustice to the creditor in granting the debtor the option of coins with which to pay, and declaring that the debtor choos ing the abundant gives value to it by use, and deprived the scarce of value to that extent by lack of use. The operation in many and large transactions, said he, is to reduce the value of the scarce while enlarging the value of the abundant with a constant attraction of the two to parity as the consequence, and quoted the ex perience of France to confirm this prac tically. He said that the market price of silver relative to gold was kept at about the French mint price just as safely when the annual production of silver was fif ty times the production or gold as when it was only six times the annual produc tion of gold, and claimed to have an swered Shaw's history of currency on these points. Mr. St. John said he thought the United States had a sufficient use for money to do what France could do. Ho resented the suggestion of a silver basis in the United States as the result of the reopening the mints to silver, but said if the silver basis ensues it may enable us to duplicate the experience of India. Indiu's foreign commerce, according to Mr. St. John, establishes a credit balance of trade approaching $100,000,000 in u year, which pays her gold liabilities of $110,000, 000. and draws $55,000,000 of silver and $25,000,000 of gold from the trading world in settlement. The suggested exhaustless supplies of stiver are to be met, he claimed, with a supposed exhaustless supply of gold in 1853. He claimed that the object of the bimetallists Is to enlarge the world's aggregate of money while the world's aggregate of everything else Is enlarging, and said that the tendency of that will be to provide to producers a fair share of the wealth which they pro duce, the result being a tendency in law toward the dissemination rather than toward the aggregation of wealth. He declared that the bankers have two in terests in the same direction, one of which is profitable rates f interest on money invested in production. The other is such property among producers as will ensure to the gain of railways, etc., and show in paying freights and passenger travel. Mr. St. John regards this essen tial to the safety of so-called fixed in comes, as well as to the certainty of the securities on which loans are made. He says the parity between our gold and sil ver money is ndt preserved by redeeming sliver coin and certificates in gold, but by the operation of the legal tender func tion of the dollar in view of our great demand fof money. Tie thinks inde pendent bimetallism in the United States would be successful if attempted under present conditions, foreign and domestic, ynd/9t the present ratio of about 16 to 1. He offers statistics and experience to sup port this view. Mr. Uham of Philadelphia and Homen stein also spoke today. A vice-president was elected for each state and some 'states have two or three. Sixteen new members of the executive council were elected. The association adjourned finally this afternoon and the members were enter tained at a barbecue given by Captain Lowry.

New Orleans, Oct. 17.—1The collector of customs at this port stated today to the Southern Associated Press reporter that there are no new developments in the case of the steamship Woodall. The Spanish consul here still insists that the authorities at Washington should pre vent the Woodall leaving this port with munitions of war. The Washington authorities have in dorsed the collector’s decision-Hi the mat ter, and beyond that nothing has been done. The collector’s ruling in the ease is that the government has no lawful right to interfere with the ship, and that she may sail whenever her owners please. The Cuban pat riots in this city are delighted that the government of the United States concedes the right of a vessel engaged in commercial undertak ing to carry arms and munitions of war.
