Currency continues to be the sub;
ject to which the leaders in both
Houses of Congress are devoting
chief attention. While the confusion
caused by the multitude of sugges
tions at the beginning of the sesion
has "been dared away to a great ex
tent, it has not yet been possible to
satisfy all the men most influential
in shaping currency legislation in
Congress or all the financal interests
outside with any single measure that
has been brought forward thus far.
It has been assumed in many
Quarters that Senator Aldrich's bill
would be the one to be passed. While
the presumption is naturally in favor
of this measure on account of Mr.
Aldrich's influence as chairman of
the Senate Committee on Finance,-a
great deal of opposition to his bill
has developed, both on the part of
members of the House Committee on
banking and currency and among
prominent bankers in the east and
west alike. Former Comptroller of
the Currency, A. Barton Hepburn,
president of the Chase National Bank
of New York, who is generally rec
ognized as a spokesman of the con
servative banking interests of the
country, has protested publicly and
vigorously against any provision for
bond secured currency. .
Many financial experts, especially
those who have studied the currency
systems of France, England and Ger
many, are in favor of a central bank.
There seems to be a general feeling,
however, that a prejudice exists
against such a measure, although
little evidence of any such feeling
has been displayed here. The fear
Of arousing this prejudice makes
many Congressmen shy of endorsing
any proposal for a central bank of
A third suggestion is put forward
by Alexander Gilbert, president of
the New York Clearing-House Asso
ciation, which was instrumental in
preventing the October panic from
reaching disatrous proportions. His
plan, which is proposed briefly in the
course of an article in the February
number of Appleton's Magazine, is
the provsion of an emergency cur
rency by simply developing and rec
ognizing officially the clearing-house
certificate plan used with such good
effect in the recent trouble. He
points out that the amount of such
certificates issued in New York was
$97,000,000, or less than 10 per cent
of the total deposits. This amount is
less proportonately than was issued
during 1893. A large part of these
certificates have been cancelled al
ready and all are likely to be retired
within a short time. This amount was
in excess of actual requirements, as
the full amount issued was not in
use even at the height of the panic
and retirements began almost as
soon as the issue was made.
"A careful computation," says Mr.
Gilbert, "shows that $74,000,000 would
have sufficed to do the required
work. With this amount of certifi
cates, restricted in their use to
clearing-house purposes, exchanges
to the amount of $2,300,000,000 daily
have been settled quietly and effec
tively. Here we have the best object

that is as absolutely secure as any
thing human can be. that can be
quickly issued and quickly retired,
that requires no complicated bank
machinery to put it into circulation,
that will never be issued until it is
imperatively required, that can never
result in nflaton, and that wll always
be under the control of the most ex
perienced bankers. Furthermore, it
may be added that this is a system
which is purely American.
"AH that is needed to adapt such
a system to our requirements is de
velopment, and I feel confident that
if the subject could be referred to
the clearinsr-house committees of
the three central reserve cities, an
emergency currency plan coum De
evolved that would be in harmony
with our national banking system
and be less subject to- criticism and
opposition than any other system
which has yet been proposed.'
In case the opposition to the Aid-
rich measure becomes formidable, it
is likely that the plan outlined in the
Appleton article wll be adopted at
least as a temporary provision assur
ing safety from such demoralization
as was threatened last October.

More people succumb each year to
some form of kidney trouble than any
other cause. The slightest form of
kidney derangement often develops
into Bright's kidney disease, diabetes
or dropsy. When cither of these dis
eases are suspected the sufferer should
at once seek the best medical atten
tion possible. Consult only a good,
first-class physician, leave patent
There are many of the lesser symp
toms of kidney trouble which can be
treated at home, is stated by a well-
known authority. For some of these,
such as backache, pain in the region
of the kidneys, weak bladder, fre
quency (especially at night), painful
scalding and other urinary troubles,
try the following simple home rem
edy: Fluid Extract Dandelion, one
half ounce; Compound Kargon, one
ounce; Compound Syrup Sarsaparilla,
three ounces. These simple ingredi
ents are harmless and can be obtained
at any good prescription pharmacy
and any one can mix them by shak
ing well i. a bottle. The dese for
adults is a teaspoonful after each meal
and again at bedtime.
There Is no better general remedy
known to relieve all forms of rheuma
tism either, because it acts directly
upon the kidneys and blood. It cleans
the clogged-up pores in the kidneys
so they can filter and strain from the
blood the poisonous uric acid and
waste matter which, if not eliminated,
remain in the blood, decompose and
settle about the joints and muscular
tissues, causing the untold suffering
and deformity of rheumatism.
- Backache is nature's signal, notify
ing the sufferer that the kidneys are
not acting properly. "Take care of
your kidneys," is now the physician's
advice to his patients.

000 of the $97,000,000 in clearing
house certificates isucd by the Clear-ing-House
Association during the re
cent financial flurry had been retired.
Since Monday $7,SOO,000 of the certi
ficates have been taken tin, nearly
$-000.0X) a day. J is believed that
practically the whole of the amount
outstanding will be wiped out by the
end of the week and that early next
week the clearing-house will again
be on a strictly cash basis. The fact
that money is now flowing into the
banks in large quantities is emphn-j
sized by the fact that the retirement i
of the certificates was simultaneous
with the return of $10,000,000 of the
emergency deposit made by the Gov-
eminent during the heiuht of the
flurry. The highest rate for call
money yesterday was 2 1-2 per cent.
most of the loans being made at 2
per cent, and some of them at 1 1-2.
