Mr. Flynn said in part:
The financial laws of the Unitui States
have ever been its shame. The vagaries
of the impractical theorist and the trick
try of the designing politician permeates
every lino. The practical politician has
held the finance of the country in the hoi
low of his hand. The needs of business
the practical non-partisan views of prac
tical non-partisan business men have as
yet had little real influence upon financial
True, the Indianapolis convention and
its learned, wise, statesmanlike patriotic
chairman. H. H. Hanna, are In some quar
ters held responsible for the act of
March 14, 1&00. But the members of that
convention would not recognize this recent
legislation as the child of their thought
This new legislation has been generally
accepted as a gold measure. The sound
money press, sound money advocat< s
praise it as such. The repudiation press
and its supporters condemn it as such
Perhaps the talking and writing members
of these opposing forces have not realized
that the house bill failed to become a law
That bill placed our financial system firm
ly upon a gold basis. But, sad to relate,
the house after so nobly endeavoring to
fulfill the pledge given the sound money
forces, weakly surrendered to the unsound
element in the senate. And we get what?
A gold brick. We asked for true gold and
have been given a salted brick.
The bin adopted in conference and en
acted into law dees not give us a gold
base, does not effectively establish the
gold standard. It transforms I'nited
States notes into permanent gold certifi
cates, treasury notes into temporary gold
certiiic ates. And by transforming the
United States nofc> s into gold certificates
it indirectly provides for the redemption
of national bank notes in gold by the
banks. But for the rest? All bonds, ex
cept those issued under the provisions of
this act—that is, the refunding bonds
are left on a "coin" base. All "coin
bonds can be redeemed in silver—will be
if we have a silver secretary, and if We
have a gold secretary, how can he avoid
it? Indeed, future legislative action will
be retired to enable the secretary of the
treasiury to redeem any government
bonds, gold or coin, in gold unless there
be sulticienl of the yellow metal in the
general fund for the purpose. And the
other forms of money issued or coined?
What of them? The "other forms of
money," excepting of course certificates
issued to individual depositors of gold or
United States notes, will consist of irre
deemable silver dollars and subsidiary sil
ver coin and silver certificates redeema
ble in irredeemable silver dollars only.
There can be but one conclusion. Ourlaw
makers intentionally, with malice afore
thought, have taken a long step toward
establishing a silver base. Indeed, they
have actually phaced a very large part
of our circulating medium and other ob
ligations of the government upon a sil
ver basis. Practically all of the smal'er
denominations now rest upon silver and
Tt may be conceded in defense of the
act that an inferior money can be main
tained at a parity with a superior money
so long as the volume of the inferior
money is not greater than domestic uses
can absorb. But the instant domestic de
mand is insufficient then the parity must
disappear. However, it must again be
insisted that there is but one certain
way to maintain a parity between the
differing forms of money. They must be

AMENDMENTS TO BANKING LAW.
The amendments to the national bank
ing law incorporated in the act of March
14. 1900, are of special interest to bank
ers, and it is to be hoped a brief discus
sion of their merits will not weary you.
National banks are allowed to increase
their circulation to the par of the bonds
deposited as security.
They can issue an amount of notes, se
cured by bonds, equaling their cap tai
actually paid in.
The organization of banks having a
capital of less than $50,000 is provided^ for I
in places, the population of which does
n°t exceed 3,000 inhabitants.
The taxation on circulation secured by !
the new 2 per cent gold bonds provided I
for in the act, is fixed at % of 1 per cent I
These are the advantages offered to na
By conferring these benefits, real or ap
parent, the government hopes to injure
*he /?£? ndln * of all of th* 5s of 1904 the
4s of 1907 and 3s of 1908, it desires, inio the
long gold 2s, thereby saving a very sub
stantial'amount in interest.
To make the exchange profitable and
desirable for the banks the tax of 1 per
cent on circulation secured by old bonds
is retained, thus showing a substantial
discrimination in favor of circulation
based on the new 2s.
AMENDMENTS ARE SUGGESTED.
If it is in order to propose amendments
to this new financial law so soon after

That all United States notes and treas

to national banks by the government at
That these bonds and these alone shall
be accepted for circulation purposes.
That there shall be a minimum and
maximum amount of circulation requir
ed and allowed.
That convenient depositories shall be
designated where in times of currency
famine banks may secure shipping cur
rency at minimum cost by depositing
coin or circulation bonds therefor.
The circulation bonds must be registered
and cannot be transferred exa.'pt back
to the government, thus avoiding the pos
sibility of a premium.
That national banks be permitted to In
clude national bank notes in their reserve.
That the gold redemption of all forms
of money and all classes of bonds be pro
That national banks located in towns
having less than 25,000 inhabitants be
permitted to loan not less than 20 per

BANKER AND DEMAGOGUE.
Friends, there is one most welcome con
viction that comes to us with this "new
financial law." It Is a "sop." At last our
political friends have come to realize the
importance of the business element.
Races. sections, creeds, societies,
churches, tempera nee advocates and sa
loonkeepers get their political sops. And
we now have ours. Tt may not be mucn.
But it was intended to silence us, to satis
fy us, perhaps. And so we have made
our importance felt.
Too long the banking fraternity has held
itself apart. Oppressed by the prejudices
engendered by demagogues, the banker
has felt himself in a measure a political
outcast. Apparently no one has wel
comed his open support—lt .might lose
votes among the so-called common people.
The demagogue has created a wide chasm
of prejudice between the banker and the
ignorant. Lurid denunciation of the
banker pleases the mob ear. He is pic
tured as the cause of all their troubles.
He has the money of the country In his
trousers pocket. He has but to button
the flap and famine results. He is in con
stant contribution to the money power
which seeks to further enslave the
masses. He has purchased at great price
the control of the circulating medium.
The money in the banks does not belong
to the bankers. It belongs to the people,
to the masses, and it is subject to the
control of the people. The bank is a
collection of men or women—shareholders
—doing business collectively. The officers
and directors conduct this business for
the shareholders. Among the sharehold
ers, directors and officers of every bank
every shade of political opinion may be
found. It is therefore arrariT nonsense to
say that the banks contribute to any par
ty. An attempt to do so by any of those
interested would stir up a pretty row.
Let the banking fraternity shake off
the shackles of prejudice and distrust.
Aid in the emancipation of the masses
from the control of the demagogue. Let
your light be seen. The people are be
ginning to realize that' you are not alto
gether devils incarnate, and the politi
cians, realizing this, have thrown you
a sop. Strive on; iiake your influence,
for good felt throughout the land. Do not
remain silent when you see the business
interests of the country in peril. Assert
your right to be heard. Persist in your
demand for a wise and adequate financial
Do these things and your next sop will
have more substance to it than the one we
are now endeavoring to digest.
