The Lxett Pacta About National Oanka
n4 Bank Note.
Tbe iollowiog article in expl station ol
the nationil banking system, written by
Judge M. C. (ieorge, of Portland two or
throe years ago, ia one of tbe best we
even aaw pabllshed, and aa the question
of national baoka ia again prominently
before the )eople, w publish the same
roriUA.vo, May 2. To tbo odltor,In
these day a of popolietlc agl'atioo it seems
neresaary occasionally to thresh again
some of the old straw of tbt past. Na
tional banks have jeen established about
30 years, Tbey look the place of the
wild-cat state bank system, or lack of
yavern raiuer, auu wuita imruaan aiiacKl
nave caused tbe closest scrotiny into
their merits, tbe undoubted benefits
have disarmed criticism, and for yean
repablcvaca sod democrats have goner
all? approved and endorsed tbo system
as the boat that bi ever Uen devised.
It remains, however, for tbe so-called
people's party in its faolt-flodiof cam-
palgu to blindly aeek to poll it down.
In une of their recent campaign books
written by tbeir ex congressman,
Thomas E. Watson, of Georgia, in start
ling headlines it porporti to tell "How
bond-holders get tbe government
money at 1 per cent to loao to lualwae
men at from 8 to 30 per cent," etc. Pop
nlista speakers are every where alleging
that baoka borrow their money from tbe
government at I per cent, and urge that
aa a reason why tbe farmers ebould be
allowed a like privilege on land, wheat.
carrots and rutabaga" at 2 per cent.
Tbey also favor the ieeue of paper money
by tbo government to take tbe place of
all national bank notes. This also seems
to be largely tbo burden ol Governor
I'ennoyei '4 political complaiut. Permit
uio briefly to repeat w hat!every person ol
intelligence on tbe subject already
The privilege of starting a national
bank and issuing circulating notes, ia
free to any live or mcrj pdiaoos in any
city, in any county, any stale iu tbia
Uniou w ho comply w ith its terms.
To start Ibe smallest bank these bank
people will have to have (59,000 in order
to get $15. 000 of national bank uotss into
circulation. To buy j0,C00 of 4 per
cent toiled stales bonde, required to bo
deposited to eccuro these uolce, at the
pievaiuog premium 01 fl li1.., will re
quire $37,250 aod the f 2:53 which baa to
be deposited as reserve for note redemp
tion at Washington makes op the afore
said (59,500. Now, if, instead of putting
this sum into a national bank, tbey loan
it at 10 per cent (bey will receive 15050
per annum, Hut according to tbe talk
now going on tbe bank people can make
a much mora with this money by start
ing a national bank when, aa the popu
lists contend the bank people can draw
double interest by getiing45,0O0 to loan
out at usury, and sleo interest on tbeir
bonds deposited. Now let us see. Tbey
deposit the 150,000 bonds at Washington
and draw out not one cent of mosey,
Governor Pennoyer to tbe contrary, not
withstanding. Tbey get blank notoa for
115,000, tbo government simply saying
that if the bank officials, fill out, alga
and issue any of these blanks, for value,
that it will see that tbey will be redeem
ed on demand aod to make tbe redeem
ability doubly aure it holds tbe (50,000
bonds and tbe ruerre of 2250, with
wbicb it can make tire guaranty good.
Tbe (15,000 blank demand notoaj axe
not money, and aa tbey come from tbe
treasury to tbe bank, aro wortbleea in tbe
market. Tbe bank officials sign them as
their promises to pay on demand, and
iaane them aa tbe debt ol the bank.
(Jailing them bank bills, currency or
money after tbe bank issues them doea
not change the fact that tbey are simple
tbe promissory note of tbo bank paytble
on demand, on worth just aa much and
no mere than any other promissory de
mand note that Is wall secured They
are cot legal tonder, but circulate aa
money simple because everybody knows
tbey are redeemable in cjin. The' gov
ernment at the expense of tbe bail k
prints these blanks for notes with tbe
peculiar green ink used only by tbe gov
ernment, and on secretly prepared paper
and on plates that are bard to imitate,
thus making a uniformity of appeareuce
in the curreucy in common uee diuicu't
to counterfeit, besides restricting beyond
all question tho bank to the issue ol such
notes only as tho government holds col
lateral for aa security. ' Now let ua see
how much the bauk makes. ' It draws
tbe interest on its (50,000 4 per cent
bonds, (ittQO. It loana out all its (45,000
notes, which of courte they seldom do, as
no bauk desires to deplet 1 itaelf of all ita
notes, aud if it loaus them all at 10 per
cent iutereat it geta (430O more, making
(0500 in all Out of this it baa t) pay
the goverumeut a tax of 1 per cent per
anuuin 00 its circulation, or (450, leaving
(0050 or (100 per year tuoro lhau il it
bad not goue into the bankiug bueiuess,
but loaned Ita mouey at the curfeut rate
oflOperceut. Hut banks muat pay a
government tax of of 1 per cent on all
ita deposits aud aj further like tax on
such portiou of its capital stock aa is uot
invested iu United biatea bonds. .
If it were a simple question - of usury
these bank people bad better loan tbeir
(50,500 before getting a natloual bank
charter tbau tbeir (15,000 circulating
notes afterward. The truth ia just aa
you uay iu your editorial, there ia no ex
tra money lo ita circulating notes to the
banks, sod tbey only do it becauae they
bava to, and ia these times of idle money
they ooly deposit bonds for tbe lowett
amount repaired. The prevent Issue of
(180,000,000 is Jast abont tbe minimum.
Tbere are also many other requirement
aod restriction on national banke.
vtny ooitiey agree to tbero, gome one
aaka? Because tbe prestige of belonging
to the national bank system, the confl
denne depositors and bnsioese man have
ia governmental supervision, the fact
that 00 one ever lost a dollar of their

prompt people, republicans, democrat

business to do it aa national baoka rather
