The Preparation of Appropriation
Bills and Other Matters ,
WASHINGTON , December 2(5. ( Mr.
Bucknor , chairman of the committee on
banking and currency , is preparing a bill
to introduce when congress ro-convcne's ,
providing for issuing treasury notes
without the legal tender Duality , to takotho
place of bank notes going out of existence.
Tlio purpose is the same as that of tlio
bill introduced by Buckner the lirat ses
sion of last congress. The proposition of
Comptroller Knox to take oil' 1 per cent
of the tax on circulation , and allow banks
to issue on market value instead of par
value , is not favored by the chair
man of the banking and currency
committee. Bucknor says if the plan of
Knox was successful in avoiding contrac
tion of the circulation of bank notes , it
affords but temporary relief and in seven
years from the present , when it becomes
necessary to begin redeeming 4i per cent
bonds , there will bo n recurrence of the
present trouble. The national bank sys
tem cannot live without n national debt ,
and as that debt is being wiped out grad
ually and certainly , . Bucknor U of opin
ion it is time to prepare for n permanent
circulation. Ho is not favorably in
clined to a removal of the tax on circula
tion , giving as a reason that while in
eastern states where the interest is low-
circulation is not a valuable franchise of
banks , but it is valuable and worth all
the government asks in the western states.
Bucknor says the franchise ia still more
valuable because the rate of interest there
is higher. The originator of the proposed
measure is doubtful of securing any
legislation upon the subject the pre
sent session , owing to the diverse opinion
among members. Dingley , who heads
the list of republican members of the
committee on banking and currency soys
the most important question relating to
national banks is that of providing for
the stability of circulation. Ho thought
but two plans proposed to this end were
practicably. Ono was to provide for the
issue of circulating notes to an amount
equal to 00 per cent of the market value
of bonds deposited to secure circulation.
After a hasty examination of the list of
members of the committee ho said ho waa
of opinion , that this plan is moro likely to
find favor with the committee. HB would
* aot'vonturo an opinion , as to the treat
ment the other plan he had in mind.
Under provision of the last postoffico
Appropriation bill when the compensa
tion of any postmaster of the fourth
class reached § 250 for four consecutive
quarters , exclusive of commissions on
money order business , he was to bo as-
rv si'tied to the presidential grade and the
following named fourth class offices have
been placed on the list of presidential

Congressman Cox , of Now York , who
was appointed chairman of the house
committee on naval affairs , has informed
an intimate friend that ho ( Cox ) will pos
itively decline to servo on that committee
when congress reconvenes. The reasons
assigned for Cox's refusal are that the
committee en naval affairs is ono com
paratively little before congress , and that
wonty-two years service in the house en-
itles him to the chairmanship of _ the
oreign affairs committee. His friends
ly , in that position Cox contemplated
