MR GAGES NEW
BANKING PLAN
Secretary Gratified by Len
iency of Criticism
GOOD POINTS OF PROPOSED SCHEME
Avoidance of Financial Pitfails and
Panicky Disturbances Well-
Nigh Assured Ho Thinks if
His Idoas Prevail
The criticisms rasscd by various states
men aul editors on the new schemo of
and currency proposed by the
Bctretary of the Treasury In his late an
nual report to Congress Ime beca much
less unf m ornlje than Mr Gage expected
they would be To use the Secretarys
o vn words he thinks his iIowb lue re
coiled -cry kind treatment
Since the report made public last
Tuesday 31r Gage has tecehed clippings
of numerous editorials from newspapers
published Jn New York Chicago and other
large cities and has recched Usits In his
office from teveral leading Senators and
members of Congress came express
ly for the purpose of discussing his pro
posed banking scheme
This Mr Gage says Is precisely what
be wanted He invited criticism and
would have been disagreeably disappoint
ed If the criticism had not come He
recognized that nothing could be realized
from his plans unless the publication of
them should arouse sufficient Interest to
provoke a widespread discussion
Secretary Gngc talked freely yesterday
of his new banking scheme He spoke
especially of his reasons for belle Ing that
the ntgument for legal tender notes or
greenbacks in preference to bank notes
is fallacious
Wlij GrrriitjiirK UiitlcMrnlie
It is a long story he said to tell
why the greenbacks in ray opinion nfc
undesirable but It is a bad condition
when we And there are outstanding 340
000000 in redeemable paper and a gold re
scne of only 150000000 in the Treasury
The Goerpmcnt strictly speaking lias
no assets as a prhatc business institu
tion has assets A bank issues currency
but It does to only up to the limit of cer
tain dellnlte resources which aro con
stantly and carefully supervised by the
Federal authority Its Issues of notes are
at the mailtuum strictly dollar for dol
lar against Government bonds deposited
with the Treasurer of the United States
The disadvantage of greenbacks oer
bank notes in the system which I propose
consists also in the extenslveness to the
people It is a less economical form of
enrrency
The objection has been made that un
der ni the proposed fT Z plan for banking
DISCOVERED A BIO CAVE

Cniijon of tlic IrrTcrson
BUTTE Jton Dec 8 A new and won
derful cave believed to be one of the
largest known has just been dlscocrcd
In the canjon of the Jcflcrson on the line
of the Northern Pacific Railway about fif
ty miles east of Butte A partial explora
tion of It has been made by a Butte news
paper man and a small paity
Sei cral days wire pcnl In the cac and
explorations made an extent of
ten miles or more and to a depth of near
ly 1000 feet A large rlcr with a cat
aract of about 100 feet was explored for
a distance of several miles without dis
covering its source or outlet
Articles of stone and copper utensils
and some believed to be liuinin
bencs were also discovered In one of the
large apaitments explored There were
other evidences that at some time in a
prehistoric pcrlcd the cave was used as
a habitation Th belief of J W Gilbert
a scientific gentleman with the pirty of
explorers is that an earthquake closed
the entrance to the cave and killed Us In
habitants
The present opening of the cave was
made by some limo quarry men at a point
1C00 feet above the bed of the Jeffi Ron
River while engaged In blasting rock Tha
formations of stalactite and other natural
decorations throughout the cave are pro
nounced the most beautiful and varied

BONINE TRIAL MAY

Today the Bonine trial enters on Its
fourth week and ever one in any man
ner connected with this celebrated case
devoutly hopes that It will soon end
Drill Cim ril li Tncl I-
Last week District Attorney Gould said
he expected the case to go to the Jury
not later than the coming Thursday But
in making this prophecy he did not in a
measure consider the nature of the ques
tions counsel for the defence have bem
propounding for the past two davs to
their rxpert witnesses
All of these questions phrased in tech
nical language have met with the most
decided opposition from the Government
That the opposing lawyers have argued
for two days Friday and Saturday on
the competency of one question and
that it has not yet been ruled upon bv
the court Illustrates the tortuous prog
ress the trial Is making
Dr Cnrr to TuVr llic Mniul
Dr V P Carr will resume the stand
hls morning after Justice Anderson has
and currency the private Institutions I
would reap a profit that the Government iu cuuuiu
might Just as well enjoy for itself The be rule adversely to the defence they
same criticism is made under our present j will very likely pursue the tactics of
system The answer to that Is that the j masking questions objected to In guise of
banks take the risk perform the labor
and devote their energies to the conduct
of this business Why not ask why a mill
owner should be allowed to nJoy profits
from his business or the merchant or
the steamship company As long as it
is recognlicd that banks arc a useful
agencj In the community and that they
have an important place in the great
scheme by which industry and commerce
arc carried on they should be allowed to
provide the most convenient means In the
form of currency with which to perform
these functions
Ko lVarn of Ytlldrnt Cnrrrar
Mr Gage said he had no fears that un
der the system which be proposes there
would be any return to the old condition
of wildcat currency and he did not con
template that banks would be formed for
the mere purpose of making a profit out
of currency It happened he said that
the bank of which he was president for
some ears In Chicago with n capital of
J3C0O0C O novcr Issued a dollar uf cur
rency during the period of his Incumben
cy Of course this condition would have
been changed probably had such a system
in national bank currency as he now pro
poses existed at that time Still he has
no Idea that new banks would spring up
for the sole purpose uf Issuing currency
Iftnur of Cirrnlnllnir oIph
The radical new departure of allowing
banks to issue circulating notes up to
the limit of their capital with only 30 per
cent deposit of Government bonds will
bear the most searching analysis Mr
Gage believes The creation of a guar
anty fund by annual contributions from
the capital stock of the banks amounting
to 1 S of 1 ptr ceat he relies upon as an
adequate insurance against loss
To Ilrtlrr tlir Crr nliieL
At the same time the deposit or 20 per
cent of the capital in legal tender notes
r the United States would in time ac
complish his varaem desire to retire the
ereenbaclts from circulation On the
basis of the present total capitalization
of the banks Jirs 000000 in greenbacks
would be turned into the Treasury as
soon as the banks should organize under
the proposed new law
He predicts that the prescal capitaliza
tion under the successful operation of his
plan would be Increased within three
to 1000 000 000 and the deposit of
icreenbackB would therefore rise to
JIOO000000 This would leave about JH6
600000 of these notes still In circulation
but this amount would gradually be re
tired as new banks organized Thus the
change from greenback circulation to
bank note circulation would be accom
Illt bed by degrees and as Mr Gage said
yesterday the change would make no
Impression that Ik no disagreeable im
pression on the Industry and commerce
of the country
of lijf rlrn
The proposed guarant fuod Ik based to
TOie extent on experience the Secrctarj
says He rcferc to the time forty years
xo when the so called safety fund
a fealurr of the State banking law of
New York The banks under that law
passed through one of the worst financial
panics In our history Thp moneys con
stituting the safety fund were diverted
fo another purpose but it is a mere mat
ter of a little figuring Sir Gage s to
show that had they ben um to pay tin
losses of the failed banks all obligations
would have been disposed of and a large
balance of the fund left over This cita
tion from actual e jierlence is re enforred
by the computation nude by the Actuary
of the Treasury under the Secretarys di
rection which showed to his fatlhfartloti
that a guaranty fund of the kind proposed
would have afforded ample -mil r lion to
all the banks of the countrv during the
last thirty six jears a period In which
occurred two of the moi disastrous pan
ics ever known in the Inited States As
the Secretary said in lil annual report
there would still be left a balanre of the
guaranty fund amounting to raoic than

Ij ii true Prophet
tlonnl Amendment
Three Mormon ciders sat throughout
the mectnc held at the First Congrega
tional Church jestcrdav afternoon in the
intert st of the constitutional amendment
against polygamy as it exists in Utah
and listened to an open and weeping de
nunciation of what was held to be one of
the principal tenets of their faith at the
hands of eminent divines
The elders were Albeit K Miller Pres
ident of the Xntthwcst Virginia Confer
ence of the Church of Jesus Christ of Lat
ter Day Saints Ambrose Shurtz of Es
calante Utah and Joseph B Harper of
Murray Utah The elders were nccom
pnnlcd to the mcetlns by Senator Frfd
Dubois of Idaho
Mr Clemen llris
The principal speaker at the meeting
was Rev X E Clemencon pastor of the
Fresh terlan Church at Logan Utah who
came from a Mormon family and las
spent nil of his life in Utah In his
opening remnrhs he declared that there
was never a time when polygamy was as
wife as at the present time when shelter
ed behind Slate supremacy in the domain
of Utah He also read the manifesto by
whkh the practice of polygamy was sus
pended and contrasted It with the revela
tion In the hook of doctrines and cove
nants which commands polygamy
This movement against polygamy de
clared Mr Clemenson Is Interdenomi
national Xo appeal is made to political
parties as wc wish to avoid politics It
Is by no means sectarian as it Is not an
effort to suppress or oppose the Mormon
Church as a religious body as this would
be entirely foreign to American senti
ment Wc arc simply an Interdenomina
tional council for Christian and patriotic
service looking toward the suppression
of n crlr ic wheh the present laws of tho
United States do not affect
t tnh lnvv At Iitifnrrcl
Congress itself does not and cannot af
fect polvgamy The law making poljgamy
a crime Is only operative In the Territo
ries of the United States but not within
the boundaries of any State In the Union
There would be no need to amend the
Tederal Constitution if the State of Utah
would enforce Its luws against polygamy
but It will not Therefore the aim of this
council is to secure on amendment to the
Federal Constitution so ns to enable Con
gress to legislate on this subject md rd
mlt of the Federal courts having jurisdic
tion over It
Rev Dr Nichols of St Louis a mem
ber of the revision committee of the
Presbyterian Church which Is in session
at the Church of the Covenant presided
at the meeting short addresses were
made by Rev Dr Wilson of the Methodist
hurch Rev Dr Power of the Christian
Church and Rev Dr Fish of the Presby
terian Church all of whom denounced
polygamy and voiced the sjmpathy of
themselves nnd the members of their re
spective congregations in the movement
to have the Federal Constitution amend
ed so as to make polygamy a crime Tho
following resolutions as read by Rev Dr
Fish were unanimously adopted
Itrsoliitions Adopted
Whereas we believe that polygamy
as taught by the Church of the Latter
Day Saints Is still a part of tbjir be
lief and practice and that the laws
of the State of Utah as administered
by the government of that State trc
Inadequate to suppress It nnd
Whereas there Is no way by which
this offence can be reached as through
the Constitution of the United Stales
Therefore be It
Resolved That this meeting most
heartily endorses the amendment to
the Constitution prohibiting polygamy
within the domain of the United
Slates and urges the passage of this
bill by the Congress now In session
I1I1h Ifllfr
A letter from the Rt Rev Henry Y
Satterlec Bishop of the Protestant Ii Is
copal Diocese of Washington was read
by the Rev Dr Xlchols In which lie ex
pressed regret at not being able to be
present at the meeting and earnestly
hoping that the amendment to the Federal
Constitution looking toward the prohibi
tion of polygamy would be carried as It
was In direct line with American tradi
tions
Elder Miller was seen last evening and
said that poljgamy never was a tenet of
the Mormon faith and that It Is not em
braced In the thirteen articles nf faith

As to the resolutions passed at Hie
meeting held at the First Congregational
Church euld Mr Miller they were In
troduced and adopted without an oppor
tunltj being afforded for discussion Had
such an opportumt been afforded I most
ccrtalnlj would have made a statement
of the condition in Ltah
At St George Utah for example
where poljKaniy forniTly flourished the
are but seven out of 300 families where
polygamj cxits and in every Instance

The youngest of these seven piliamlts
is fifty five while the oldest is nlnetj
