Oh, for Jeffersons to advocate in these days the issue of paper money only and do away with banks of issue. The following are some of the many declarations of Mr. Jefferson on the questions of money: ' And the nation may continue to issue its bills as far as its wants re quire and the limit of its circulation admit. Those limits understood to extend with us at present to $200,000, 000 a greater sum than would he necessary for any war. But this is the only resource which the govern ment could command with certainty, the states having unfortunately fool ed away, nay, corruptly alienated to swindlers and shavers under the cover of private banks. Say, too ns as an additional evil, that, the dis posable funds of individuals to this great amount have thus been with drawn from impiovements and useful enterprise, and employed in the use less usurous and demoralizing ptac tices of bank directors and their ac complices. In the war of 1775 our state availed itself of this fund by is suing a paper money bottomed on a specific tax for its redemption, and to insure its crebit, bearing an in terest of 5 per cent. In a very short time not a bill of this emission was to be found in circulation. It was locked up in the chests of executors, guardians, widows, farmers etc. We then isued bills bottomed on a re deeming tax, but bearing no interest. These were readily received, and never appreciated a single farthing." Opinions of Thomas Jefferson in 1813 his letters to John O. Epps. June 25, 1813; Jefferson's Works, volume 6, page 136 and 140. "The question will be asked and ought to be looked at, what is to be the cause if loans cannot be obtained? There is but one 'Carthage delenda est' Bank paper must be suppress ed, restored to the nation, to whom it belongs. It is the only fund on which they rely for loans; it is the only resource which can never fail them and it is an abundant one for every necessary purpose. Treasury bills bottomed on taxes, bearing or not bearing interest, as may be found necessary, thrown into circulation will take the place of so much gold and silver, which at last, when crowd ed, will find an influx into other countries, and thus keep up the quotum of medium at its salutary level. Let the banks continue, if they please, but let them discount for cash alone or for treasury notes." Letter Sept. 11. 1S13. Vol. 6, page 194. "I have ever opposed money of banks; not of those discounting for caafa but of those foisting their own f paper in circulation and thus banish ing our cash. My zeal aifainst those institutions was so warm and open at the establishment of the bank of the United States that I was derided as a maniac by the bank mongers who Mtkisg w&Wa fapn the pabtw, thaw swindling on barren grains; But the errors of tbat dav cannot be recalled. The evils thev have engendered upon I , , 3 1 j events it becomes necessary to dis- us and how are we to get out of . ... , , , , , , ! solve political bauds which have con- them? Shall we build an altei t: , , , , . . . ., iflestea them, a decent resiect to the iue uiu paper niouey oi me revoui tion watch ruined individuals but saved the republic, and burn on that ail of the bank charters, present and future, and their at tea with them? For these are to both republic and individuals." Letter to Thomas Jef ferson to President Adams, Jan., 24. 1814. "The system of banking we have both equally and ever reprobated. I contemplate it as a blot left in our institutions, which if not severed, will end in their destruction, which is already hit by the corporations and is sweeping away in its progress the fortunes and morals of our citizens. Funding, I consider, as limited right fully to a redemption of the debt within the lives of a majority of the generation contracting it; every generation coming equally by the laws of the Creator of world to the free possession of the earth he made for their subsistence, unencumbered by the predecessors. And I cinceie ly believe, with you, that banking in stutions are more dangerous than standing armies, and that the princi ple of spen ding money to be paid by posterity under the name of funding is but swindling futurity on a large scale." Letter to John Say lor, May 28, 1816, Jefferson's Works, volume 6, pages 005 GOti. Mr. Jefferson further said: '-Let us found a government where there shall lie no extremely rich men and no objectly poor ones. Let us found a government upon the intelligence of the people and the equitable dis tribution of property. Let us make laws where there shall be no govern ment partnership with favored classes. Let us protect all, in life, liberty and property, and then say to every American citizen, with the gifts God has given you, your brain, brawn and energy work out your fortunes under a just government and an equal jurisprudence." ' The institution (national bank) is one of the most deadly hostilities ex isting against the principles and form of our constitution. Ought we then to give further growth to an institution so powerful, so hostile? Now, while we are strong, it is the greatest duty we owe to the safety of our constitution to biiug this power ful enemy to a perfect subordination under its authorities. The first measure would be to reduce them to an equal footing with other banks as to the favors of the government. i Letter to Albert Gallatin, Dec. 15, J 1803, Jefferson's Works, volume 4. pages 515-520. j After the U. S. bank charter had j expired by limitation in 1811, Jeffer- SOB wrote: ! j "The banks have discontinued themselves. We are now without anv metlium. and necessity as wel as a i ,x ..,,:,;m .,. , confidence and patriotism will make; us all eager to receive treasury notes if foundetlon soaeific taxes.

Reform Press, Attention' When in the rmire of hiitii-m opinion of mankin J require that the people should declare tue causes which impel them to the separation When a lonur train of abuses ami usurpations pursuing "invariably the same object evinces a design to re duce them under corporation despot ism it is their right, it is their dut to throw off such government and to provide new guards for their security Such has been the patient suffering of the people under the rule of an oligarchic president. The history of the present president of the United States is a history of repeated injuries and i surpations, all having in direct object the establish ment of an absolute tyranny of the money power over this nation. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world. He has refused his assent to laws the most wholesome and necessary for the public good. He lias ''bulldozed" representative for op osing with manly thinness In invasion on the rights of the people He lias made representatives of tin people dependent on his will alone. He has affected to render the mili tary independent of, and superior to the civil power. He has jombiued with others to subject us to laws in violation to our constitution, giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation; as in destroying coinage of silver and issu ing bonds. He is at this time conspiring with others to destroy all government mon ey. To complete the work of death, desolation and tyranny already begun with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy, paralleled only in barbarous ages and totally unworthy the bead of a civilized nation. The people have remonstrated but have been an swered by repeated injury. A president whose character is thus masked by every act which may de fine a tv rant is unlit to be the ruler of a free people. Resolved, That we demand the im peachment of G rover Cleaveland. for usurpation of our liberties in con spiring with others to destroy all gov eminent mouer and issuing bonds in gold. Resolved, That we demand that John G. Carlisle be dismissed as sec retary of the treasury for violating the opinion of the government, pay ing out gold instead of silver on treas ury notes aud his conspiracy in aid ing the issue of bonds. Resolved. That we advocate repu diation of any more bonds issued du ring the present administration. W. H. Hoffman.
