Ibe Traveller ask: "Will Mr. Walker kindly tell us why Ibe government dee not i-ue enough greeuback to cover the deli cieney Surely, if the bank ibsue their own bills upon tbe credit ol the government, it would be sale euoug'u for tbe government lo issue its ow n note direct, wit bout subsidizing the bank.
