In his annual report submitted to the
Secretary of the Tnitury jesttnlas 1
loons Hcgister of the Treasurj in
an Interesting manner and with plain tnb
ulitlnns illustrated the workings of that
diiislon of the Department with
which he has been entrusted About the
Diision of Loans Mr Ions said In part
Like the two ears which next pre
ceded it the year just closed has been
marked by changes In the public debt of
great magnitude The alues which hae
been imolved ha- not been cqu ile d for
many jears The largest singlo item was
the irsue of Ui9l7 0 in engraed bonds
equil to nearb half the Interrst bcarlng
debt of the United States which took
place in a little oer ile months This
represented the completion of the trans
ferrins of this amount of the public debt
rrom a 3 4 and 5 per cent basis to a 2
percent inicstnunt
The total amount of bonds hanalcd by
the dhlsion has continuously Increased
ctery jcar since the fiscal jear 1S36 97
when the amount was tZT797S30 During
the lear recently closed the amount was
i 12j119C9S the increase In nlues ener
the preceding jcar was ii wi
the number of bonds handled was L79S
larger than In 1SS9 1S0O
Speiking of the refunding of the public
debt at 2 per cent Mr Ljons sajs
As stated in my last report on March
H 159- the Secretary of the Treasury is
sued a circular under an act of Con
gress of the same date in which he of
fered to reeelie bonds of the 5 per cent
loan of 190 the 4 per cent funded loan of
1307 and the 3 per cent loan of 190S 191S
and to Issue In exchange therefor a like
amount of 2 per cent bonds due in 1930
with an adjustment for the differences In
rate of interest uion the various loans
Very large amounts of bonds at the high
er rates of interest were immediately pre
sented for refunding at 2 per cent and
the issue of the latter bonds began March
17 19X As the preparation of cngraed
bonds in the usual form must necessarily
consume seeral months certificates of
less elaborate design but bearing the
exact phraseology of a registered bond
were printed for use until the regular
bonds could be completed These certifi
cates which were known as proiislonal
bonds were all retained In the depart
ment but the owners were permitted to
transfer them and they were receiied
by the Treasurer of the United States as
security for circulation and for deposits
of public moncjs precisely as would haie
been done with bonds of the usutl form
On the 30th of June 1900 the amount
of such proiislonal certificates outstand
ing was J307125S30 During the present
fiscal jear the Issue of the proiislonal
certificates was necessarily continued un
til bonds were received of a sufficient
number of denominations to render it pos
sible to begin the isue of the engraved
bonds in exchange for the proiislonal
bonds During this period the Issues of
proiislonal coupon certificates amounted
to 5Tj01S0 and of provisional registered
certificates to S1S32M00 making the total
Issue of proiislonal certificates In ex
change for bonds of other loans from the
beginning J32t004M During the two
fiscal j ears in which the Issue of provis
ional certificates was in progress the
owners of J3K7909 in registered proiis
lonal certificates requested that their or
ders be changed to coupon certificates so
that when the reissue of these certificates
finally took place the issue of 2 per cent
bonds in place of coupon proilsional cer
tificates 391350 registered proiislonal
certificates 32201050 total JO260O4uO
On July 24 I930 a sufficient amount of
registered 2 per cent bonds of scleral de
nominations had been recclicd to begin
the work of reissuing the proilsionals in
engraved bonds and September 24 the
necessary denominations of 2 per cent
coupon bonds were delliered to the office
The work of reissue was presed forward
with great rapidity until the exchange of
proilslouals for bonds was completed
After that engraitd bonds were issued
directly In place of the 3 1 and 5 per
cent bonds recelied and without the In
termediate proiislonal stage The amount
of 2 per cent bonds Issued directly for
bonds of a higher rate of Interest was
coupon bonds 135017O0 and registered
bonds J104434150 This makes the total
amount of 2 per cent engraved bonds
which were issued on account of bonds
at higher rates of Interest as follows
Coupon bonds
Registered bonds
Bears tho
420 525200
It may be noted that the Issue of J32G
00lSO in temporary certificates which
under the circumstances was unaioldablc
increased ery greatly the work of the
diiislon oier what would ordinarily haie
ben necessary In refunding this amount
of bonds For ocr three fourths of the
principal of the loan It was necessary to
Issue all the amounts twice and to can
cel the whole of one of such issues
Of the Spanish indemnity certificates
the report states that the Spanish Indem
nity certificates represent a debt of the
Goiernment of Spain to certain American
citizens These claims Mr Lons
sajs arose from the seizure by priia
teers of esseis and cargoes belonging to
American citizens or from the seizure
and confiscation of the same cither in the
ports of Spain or of Its colonies but In
all cases under the formal sanction of the
Spanish courts On the lth of Ttbruary
3S31 a conientlon was concluded at Mad
rid between the United States and Spain
It was intended to coier suth matters as
had remained unsettled at the date of the
prior treaty of February 22 1S19 as well
as such claims as had arisen during the
period inttncnlns between the two treat
ies The document stated that It was a
full settlement of all claims of whatever
class denomination or origin then at is
sue The United States agreed to receile
and transmit to the proper parties such
amount of principal or interest as might
be forwarded by Spain The treaty pro
ilded for the appointment of a commis
sioner who awarde d to -certain claimants
against Spain the aggregate sum of KM
and the act of Congress of June 7
isi proilded suitable legislation for ear
ning out the treaty
For miny years the sum of 2S5jO has
been recelied annually from Spain
through the Department of State and dl
ilded pro rata nmong the hnldirs of this
slock No ptijinent has cicr be cn made
on the principal The Treasurer of the
United States was authorized to pay the
sixtieth Installment of Interest on De
cember 27 1500
It Is 5a fact worthy of mention that
Spain his paid In Interest during the
jears since the ratification of the
treaty more than twice the amount of
principal or oier Slfc50t0
This diiislon Is one In which ninc
tcnths Indeed I mty sty nil of the
work Is of a current nature So prompt
haie been the delli cries of original and
transferred bonds during the past few
ears that the business men the country
oier he come to understand th it cases
for trXisfer reaching this ollice In the
morning arc handled with such prompti
tude that the new certificates are deliv
ered to the mall or the express company
on the evening of the same day unless
there should be a fiaw in the assign
ments or a failure on the part of the cor
respondent to forward the necessary au
thorities for the assignments In which
eient the shippers nre promptly notified
of the existing defects and Instructed
how to cure them The business world
then hrs come to expect prompt sen Ice
its contracts for delivery are based upon
that expectation and It Is a source of
gratllleatlon to know that in no Instance
during the past year was there a failure
to clear the desk of current work each
Illislre to call jour attention to two
IiiMnnees where Ill order that this oltlce
inaj be put upon a plane with others an
inert use In salary should be made
The cuitodlin of the lault In this i of
fice be ides his regular work for which
he is paid SlvoO a car el en doll ir of
which he earns at his desk has under his
Immediate control millions of dollars or
the of the Uoi eminent He Is
compelled to I rep an no iiint of the in

in his cus
times h s oi er a billion dollars
tody in other oiliees of the department
the custodian of the lault is granted ex
tra compensation because of the extra
and responsible duties del oil cd upon him
The sinie rule should apply here where
th responsibility is as great and the la
bor necessary to the safety and care or
the securities fully as arduous as is the
case in other ollirrs
Ihe case of the prlrcipil bookkeeper
of the office is also one demindlng better
compensation The position requires care
ligllance nnd ability of a high order and
when comparing the labor and responsi
bility and salary with like essentials of
tho bookkeeper in other branches of the
department it would certain seem that
the position nere snuuiu v n
1 emolument equivalent to that of other
principal bookkeepers
It would be an act of simple Justice to
I grant these two faithful and efficient
clerks an Increase of I2J per annum each
to be charged to the one as custodian of
the ault and to the other as principal
bookkeeper and I most respectfully so
I recommend
I Concluding his report Mr Lj ons makes
the folloilng recommendations
Through the dailj interchange of offl
1 clal business with other offices of the
1 Department and the larious dutes In
trusted to the reprcsentatlies of this office-
on the different committees for the
destruction of notes etc together with
the necessary Iibor in boxing labeling
and tiling all redeemed securities of the
Goiernment a large amount of work Is
performed In this diiislon each sear of
a general and miscellaneous character
the amount of which cannot be deter
mined or stated in this report for the
reason that it can not be properly esti
mated or measured
t I would also most respectfully suggest
that the salarj of the Assistant Ttfcgister
be raised to 2500 per annum It would
take but 250 to raise it from his present
comnensation of J 250 and it would then
be on an equal basis with salaries of the
deputy auditors As the Assistant Reg
ister entirely merits this slight Increase
1 trust it will be allowed him
I respectfully recommend that this of
fice be allowed four clerks of class I In
stead of an equal number at a compen
sation of 9o0 per annum Should this be
done it would permit a partial adiance
of a number of capable and desenlng
clerks who were reduced from a higher
grade without any Imaginable fault on
their part
1 haic also the honor to recommend
if it can be done that the temporary
clerks now carried on the rolls of this
office be giien permanent appointments
either after examimtion by and crtlflca
tlon from the Ciiil Sen ice Commission
or by Congressional action The work of
tho office has Increased vastly during the
past three jcars and In all of that time
tho clerks hale worked under high plea
sure There Is no probability that the
work will decrease in future ears or that
a less force than now carried will be able
to keep it up The clerks now on the
temporary roll have become trained to
expertness In the performance ot the
work allotted to them and in consequence
are efficient and painstaking skilled la
borers If 1 may use the term If It be
found that they cannot be placed perma
nently on the rolls then they should bo J
appropnaieu tor as heretofore as their
sen ices are- indispensable
The business of this office has never
been In bettf r shipe than it is at present
It Is practically up to date In each branch
I desire tei state that for this condition of
the work I am Indebted to the faithful
and efficient clerks In ech diiislon who
hale zealously perfoimed their full duty

tions of anarchy which led up to the at
tack upon the President If there is anj
thtug said he in the general conditions
of society in the land that wrongfully
caused such discontent I pray that the
Lord will remoie such conditions We
wish to mingle our prayers with our
thanksgiving JIad he died few men
would have passed out of the world In
a greater blaze of glory than William
Mr McLeod suggested that the people
would haie to look higher than Congress
for tho extermination of anarchy Phis
lui held could be accomplished only
through the work of the church of Jesu3
Christ- The speaker also eulogized the
colored man Parker as the striker of a
blow which prevented the assassin from
firing a third shot at the President
This deed howeier continued Mr
McLeod has brought us closer togeth
er In the bonds of sjmpathy If has
brought us closer to God This act will
work for good Let us not only thank
God for his mercy to us in the past in
having answered so la our prajers for
tho welfare of tho President but pray
to him for mercy In the time to come
and to spare us the life ot the President
At tho conclusion of Mr McLeods ad
dress Dr Amiss deliicicd a prayer
In resionse to a request that any mem
ber of the audience give expression to his
sentiments Dr Mulr led in prayer In
which he aked that peace and comfort
might be giien to the suffering Poxident
and that he might bo restored to hlln
to extend the kingdom of Goel H so
asked for this boon that the wife en the
sufferer might find bliss In his Mru ira
of life
The last speaker was Mr n
who said in part All here ai u illy
saddened In heart as a result cl as
sault upon the life of the President Not
since Garfields time his the country been
disturbed bj so atrocious an assault by
an Infamous wretch With the President
o well guarded it seemed impossible
The colored man Parker thanks -and
honor to that man preientcd a third bul
let being fired to further jeopardize the
Presidents life Hut I think some good
will come out of this calamity The In
tense bitterness which has developed
among the neople of the nation against
anarchy will grow until the supreme
council of the land will enact a law which
will obliterate this disease from the soil
Thank God McKInley still lives And
I hope that he will continue to Hie to
administer the affairs of the nation to
the glory of God Not since the dajs of
George Washington has there been a man
who has had a stronger hold on the af
fections of the people All hope for his
recoicrj Democratic and Republican
State administrations alike have called
their citizens to prajer for the of
the President This shows the high esti
mation In which he is held by people of
all political creed3
While he may difTcr with some in po
litical belief he Is regarded by all as
honest in the course he has pursued high
In Integrity and honor strong In Intellect
safe ns a counsellor a statesman and
above all a Christian Such men we need
and the more we have on earth the better
will be the world It Is appropriate that
this gathering should be held here to
night In the church which the President
himself attends and I belieie that God
will not be unmindful of our pravers
In our closets and ev erj where let
us continue these supplications In behair
of the stricken one and also In behalf of
his companion this handmaiden this
other stricken one And It be tint
she will be willing to leave It In the hand
of God to direct what Is best for her
and what Is best for the nation

doxoiogj and the benediction Invoked
