Fortunately, however, we have ap-
proiimately exact data for determin
ing, within cloae limit, the true pro
portion of all tranaactioua done in thia
country with credit and with money,
snd also tbe close and necessary vela
lion between money and that form of
credit by which trsde is carried on and j
transactioua closed. ;
Tbe total volom of money in circa-'
lation in tbe United B tales, October 1, :
1895. as ststed in the treasurer's re- i
port for that date, was I.6H6,6W3.60. ,
While tbe writer believes thia to be an
overestimate, especially a to gold, it
msy be accepted for tbe purpose of this
paper as sobstantiallv correct, or, for
convenience of round number.. let it be
taken aa 1. 660,000.000. The total
deposits in 9.816 banks of all kinds in

398 of actual money was expanded by
the addition of bank credits, duue by
writing oredita in the books of custom
er of the banks, to 14.900.440,970.
Again, fur convenience of round
numbers, we will make the deposits
14,900,000,000, and the cssh reserve,
1550,000,000. But a w have count
ed the I560.u00.000 ouoe, a part of the
money volume of $1,660,000,0007 and
gain aa depoaita, we matt.- dedoot it
from the depoaita in order to get at the
true proportion of work dun by money
and bank oredita.
Let it be understood at this point
that by one of these two agencies, ao
tusl money and bank credit in tbe
form of deposit (object to
transaction of every nature are liqui
dated. There is nothing outside.
Checks and draft are not money, but
they sr order to pay money, or to
transfer depoaita and thereby to, close
transactions. Check and draft make
possible onr modern system of bauk
oredita, which ao largely take the place
of the old bank note. "
W have, then, a tne true volume

Who can doubt, if in our ayitein

deemed aafe for a mututnt to increase
the proportion of credit without regard

be some recognised proportion between
primsry money, or Biucy of nlti-

Milwsokee, April 19. A stipulation
in the Northern Paclflo receivership
matter wa agreed to late this after
noon and signed by all the parties and
approved by th court It in effect
auctions all the payment that hav
been made by the receiver. Tb
necessity for an accounting between
the receivers of th two oourt la d in '
way with, and their disposal of tha .
moneys is not to be further Inquired
into, beyond th usual inspection of
Master Carey. Tb stipulation states
that, owing to Ih expectancy that a
decree of sale i about to be made, it 1
desirable to avoid th expense and the '
difficulty attendant npon a separation
of tbe funds, so that all payment made
and to be mad ars approved. The
parties to the stipulation, however,
may withdraw at any time.
Notwithstanding the apparent unan
imity of all th fact! one, there 1 a de
cided objection to tb doors at thi
time, and is place of getting through
with it and securing th signature of
the oourt in s few hour, it promises
to be a number of days before th mat-
ter is satisfactorily arranged. Judge
Jsokins evidenced opposmaa a -
course adopted by the attorneys, and ia
apparently determined to thoroughly
diiaect th proposed decree, having or,' .
dered that it be gone over section by
