A more elastic currency In tne
hands of the banka la not what this
country needs. Clearing house cer
tiorates are a species of elastic cur
rency and answer temporarily tne
protest needs and are aafe to use as
a circulating medium, but the people
would not accept them aa a perma
nent currency. The proposed elastic
currency law la no better because It
would place the money circulation
of the country In the hands of the
banks to be expanded and contracted
nt their will. That would place the
country la their power and Is the ob
ject they had la view when the gold
standard was adopted. They thought
then that n money famine would be
created and their elastic currency
bill would be passed as a relief meas
ure; but the Immense gold produc
tion of Alaska forced a postpone
ment of the scheme until the present
time. The bill will now be prasent
eu to congress and urged as the only
relief measure possible. If It falls

will demand an increased volume of

One of the unusual features of the
tinauclal*~6urry la the fact that de
i posits continue to increase In Coeur

due to their sound condition and the
confidence of the public. Had It not
been for the fact that Spokane banks
adopted the clearing house certifi
cate such a move would not have
been necessary by our local bunks.
Their cash reearve la steadily In
creasing and we believe If they were
to resume the unlimited payment of
currency today there would be no
perceptible withdrawal of funds.
