Corruption does Dot exist in politics alone. The time was when people were shocked to bear that such conditions pre vailed in politics, but worse than all else is the fact that this evil should be carried into the drug business and the sick be made to suffer in consequence thereof. For varl oub reasons dealers allow themselves to be persuaded to stock up medicines of all sorts to be Bold to the sick on the repre sentation that they are Just the same as Simmons Liver Regulator—a greater out rage has not been perpetrated upon the people.

(Continued From First Page.) nent protection against their recurrence in the future. This can be most successfully and economically accomplished by authoriz ing the secretary of the treasury to issue from time to time bonds payable in gold, bearing interest not exceeding 3 per cent per annum and having a long time to run, and to exchange the bonds for Unit ed States notes and treasury notes upon such terms as may be most advantage ous to the government, or to sell them abroad for gold whenever, in his judg ment, it Is advisable to do so, and use the gold thus obtained in redeeming the outstanding notes. In order to further facilitate the substitution of other cur rency for the retirement of legal tender notes the national banks should be au thorized to Issue notes equal in amount to the face value of bonds deposited to se cure them, and the tax on their circula tion should be reduced to % of 1 per cent per annum. When the national banking system was established the bonds of the United States were selling below par in the market, and there was consequently sufficient reason for limiting the amount of the circulating notes authorized to be issued to 90 per cent of the face value of the securities deposited, but this rea son has long since leased to exist, and the limitation should be removed. As a part of the plan for the retirement and cancellation of the legal tender notes the treasury should be relieved from re sponsibility for the redemption of nation al bank notes, except worn, mutilated and defaced notes and the notes of fulled banks, and each association should be re quired to redeem its circulation at Its own office and at agencies to be desig nated by the comptroller of the currency, as was the case prior to the passage of the act of June 20, 1874; or, if this Is not considered expedient and the present sys tem of currency redemption by the treas ury is continued, the secretary should have the power after a future date fixed In the law to require the banks to keep their 5 per cent redemption fund in gold coin, and to deposit gold coin for the withdrawal of bonds whenever the cir culation is to be permanently surren dered or reduced. Whatever objections to a national banking system may have heretofore existed, or may still exist among our people, upon economic or oth er grounds, the fact must be recognized that it has been so long established that notwithstanding its admitted defects it has served such a useful purpose In fur nishing a convenient form of currency of universal value throughout the coun try that an attempt at this time to ab sorb it, or materially abridge the fran chises of the Institutions organized un der it, would not only be unsuccessful, but would provoke injurious agitation when the precarious condition of our financial affairs demands repose. The secretary suggests an amendment of the national banking law permitting national banks to establish branches for transacting a discount and deposit busi ness, and closes his report as follows! It is not probable'than any plan for the permanent retirement of the United able time for its complete explanation, States notes and treasury notes will be adopted that will not require consider and I. therefore, respectfully urge upon congress the propriety of prohibiting any future Issues of such notes, or of national bank notes of less denomination than $10. The reasons for this recom mendation have been fully stated In forjner reports and need not be repeated here. Such a policy would make room in the circulation for silver coins and silver certificates of small denominations, thus increasing their use among the people In the transactions of their dally business and preventing their frequent return to and accumulation in the treasury. The large silver certificates now outstanding ENTS. tic Novelties nnd illation of' out* sto BRIC-A-BRAC could be retired and canceled when re ceived and smaller onces substituted for them, so that there would be no diminu tion of the amount of small currency in circulation, arid the ultimate result would be an increased use of our present state of silver in the form of subsidiary coin, or standard dollars and certlfl- V. cates.
