Washington— Currency reform, ex­
tension of the scope of the national
banking laws, in the event o f no im­
mediate general changes'in the mone­
tary system; civil service require­
ments, a customs service free from
“ practical”
methods In the daily transactions o f
the government and a general abolition
o f red tape wherever it clogs the
wheels o f the government’s business,
are among the recommendations con­
tained in the annual report o f Franklin
MacVeagh, secretary o f the treasury,
presented to congress today.
The expenses o f the government in
the fiscal year 1912, for which this ses­
sion o f congress is asked to appro­
priate, are estimated at $630,494,013.-
The estimated expenditures o f
the Panama canal are given as $56,-
920,847.69, making a total o f $687,-
414,860.81. The estimates, if carried
out, represent a net savings o f about
$13,000,000 in the executive depart­
ments, as compared with the appro­
priations for the current fiscal year.
Receipts for 1912, Secretary Mac­
Veagh estimates, w ill be $680,000,000,
which would leave an ordinary surplus
o f around $50,000,000.
I f the treas­
ury should continue to pay for the Pan­
ama canal out o f the cash drawer, as
at present, such a surplus would be
turned to a deficit o f $7,414,860.81.
Secretary MacVeagh expresses the
hope that the monetary question will
come into congress detached from sec­
tional or political considerations.
"O u r system can fairly be called a
he says,
“ whereas every other great national
banking and currency system is pan­
ic-preventing. As long as we continue
under our present system, we are
liable to panics, and the vast depreda­
tions o f panics reach Republicans and
Democrats and all parts o f the conutry
alike. Panics are no longer necessary
and no longer respectable.
It is for
the government to say whether we
shall have panics in the future or not.
It is a mere matter o f choice.”
Wednesday, December 7.
Washington— The Bsilinger-Pinchot
investigating committee,
after 11
months’ work, made its final report to
congress today.
In the opinion o f seven Republican
members, a majority o f the committee,
Secretary Ballinger “ honestly and
faithfully performed the duties o f his
high office with an eye single to the
public interest.”
In the opinion o f the four Demo­
crats, Mr. Ballinger “ has not been
true to the trust reposed in him as sec­

The Democratic members, led by
Senator Fletcher, o f Florida, agreed to
this mehod o f getting the reports be­

that was made public at Minneapolis.
This point was overruled by Chairman
