Washington, March 29. The president
has vetoed the Bland seigniorage bill.
In his message the president says:
"The recovery from the recent depres
sion Is steadly progressing. The wheels
of domestic Industry have been slowly
set in motion, and the tide of foreign
investment has again started In our dl-
ectlon. Our recovery being so well un
der way, nothing should be done to
heck our convalescence, nor should we
forged that a relapse at this time would
almost surely reduce us to a lower stage
of financial distress than that from
which we are Just emerging."
The message, owing to the relations of
the Bland bill to the currency condi
tlons of the silver purchase law lately
repealed, partially reviews that law.
The president then submits a specific
statement of his objections to the seig
lorage bill, as follows:
"It Is a bill that consists of two sec
ons, excluding one which merely ap-
ropriates a sum sufficient to carry the
act into effect. The first section pro
Ides for the Immediate coinage of the
silver bullion in the treasury, which
represents the co-called gain or selgn
lonage which would arise from the coin
ing of all the bullion on hand, which
gain or seigniorage this section declares
to be $55,156,681. Jt directs that the
money so coined, or certificates issued
thereon, shall be used in payment 0
public expenditures, and provides that
if the needs of the treasury demand' it
the secretary of the treasury may, in
his discretion, issue sliver certificates In
excess of such coinage not exceeding
Uie amount of the seigniorage in said
section authorized to be coined. The
second section' directs that as soon as
possible after the coinage of this seign
iorage, the remainder of the bullion held
by the government shall be coined into
legal tender standard silver dollars, and
that they shall be held In the treasury
for the redemption of treasury notes
Issued in the purchase of said bullion.
It provides that as fast as the bullion
shall be coined for the redemption of
said notes they shall not be Issued, but
shall be cancelled and destroyed In
amounts equal to the coin held at any
time In the treasury derived from the
coinage provided for, and that silver
certificates shall be issued on such coin
In the manner now provided by law. It
Is, however, especially declared In said
section that the act shall not be con
strued to change the existing laws re
lating to the legal tender character or
mode of redemption of treasury notes
Issued for the purchase of the silver
bullion to be coined. The entire bill is
most unfortunately consumed; nearly
every sentence presents an uncertainty
and Invites a controversy as to Its
meaning and Intent. The first section Is
especially faulty In this respect, and It
is extremely doubtful whether Its lan-
gauge will permit of the consummation
of Its supposed purposes.
'I cannot conceive of a longer step to
ward silver monometallsm than we take
when we spend our gold to buy silver
certificates for circulation, especially In
view of the practical difficulties sur
rounding the replenishment of our gold.
This leads me to earnestly present the
desirability of granting the secretary of
he treasury better power than now ex
lsta to Issue bonds to protect our gold
reserve when for any reason It should
be necessary. I hope a way will present
Itself in the near future for the adjust
ment of our monetary affairs In such a
comprehensive and conservative man
ner as will afford to silver Its proper
place In our currency.
"The present perplexities and embar
rassments of the secretary of the treas
ury ought not to be augmented by de
volving upon him the execution of a
law so uncertain and confused. I ami
not willing, however, to' rest my objec
tlon to this section solely on these
grounds. In my Judgment sound finance
does not command a further infusion of
silver Into our currency at this time,
unaccompanied by further adequate
provision for the maintenance In our
tre:iaury of a safe gold reserve. Doubts
also arise as to the meaning and con
structlon of the second section of the
In stating other and more Important
reasons for my disapproval of this see
tlon, I shall assume under its provisions
that treasury notes sued in payment
for silver bullion will continue to be re
deemed as heretofore In silver or gold
at the option of holders, and If, when
they are presented for redemption, or
reach the treasui-y in any other man
ner, there are In the treasury coined
silver dollars equal in nominal value to
such treasury notes, then and in that
case notes will be destroyed and silver
certificates to an equal amount substl
tuted. I am convinced this scheme 1b
ill-advised and dangerous. As an ulti
mate result of ita operation, treasury
notes which are legal tender for all
debts, public and private, and which are
redeemable in gold 01- silver at the op
tion of the holder, will be replaced by
silver eertllcates'which, whatever may
be their character and description, will
have none of the3e qualities. In antici
pation of this result, and as an imme
diate effect, treasury notes will natur
ally appreciate in value and desirability.
The fact that gold can be realized upon
them and the further fact that their de
struction has been decreed when they
reach the treasury must tend to their
withdrawal from; general circulation, to
ha Immediately presented for gold re
demption or to be hoarded for presenta
tion at a more convenient season. The
sequel of both operations would be large

hours of the last session an act was
passed delegating the power In question
to the governor, attorney general and
secretary of state. In the decision Just
given the supremo court holds that the
act has no force and effect, It Is In
operative for the reason that the legis

power to any Individual or set of In

Is for them alone to settle the Question
