I.AHT TEAK'S PANIC.
The financial disturbance which swept
over the country during last year was
unparaneteu in in ervenigr aim uioimj
trous consequences. There seemed to be
an almost entire displacement of faith
in our financial ability and a loss of con
fidence in our fiscal policy. Among those
who attempted to assian the causes for
our distress it was very generally con
ceded that the operation of the provision
of the law then in force which required
the eovernment to purchase monthly a
large amount of silver bullion and to is
sue its notes in payment therefor was
either entirely or to a large extent re
sponsible for our condition, i nis led to
the repeal on the 1st day of November,
1802, of this statutory provision. We
had. however, fallen so low in the depths
of depression, and timidity and appre
hension naa so completely gaineu con
trol in financial 'circles, that our rapid
recuperation could not be reasonably ex
A SMOHT KBCOvKKY.
Our recovery has nevertheless steadily
progressed, and though less than live
months have elapsed since the repeal of
the mischievous silver purchase require
ment, a wholesome improvement is un
mistakably apparent. Confidence in
our absolute solvency is to each an ex
tent reinstated and faith in oar disposi
tion to adhere to sound financial meth
ods so far restored as to produce the
most encoaraging results both at home
and abroad. The wheels of domestic in
dustry have been slowly set in motion.
ana me iiae oi loreign investment u
arain started in our direction. Our re
covery being so well under way, nothing
should be done to check our convales
cence, nor should we forget that a re
lapse at this time would almost surely
reduce us to a lower stage of financial
distress than that from which we are
just emerging. I believe that if the bill
under consideration should become a
law it would be regarded as a retrogres
sion from the financial intentions in
dulged by our recent repeal of the pro
vision forcing silver, bullion purchases;
that it wonld weaken, if it did not de
stroy, the returning faith and confidence
in our sound financial tendencies, and
that in consequence our progress to re
newed business health would be unfor
tunately checked and a return to our re
cent distressing plight seriously threat

Address W. D. PRATT, Sec'y,
MAINTAINED ONLT BY COND?XCkV
Considering the present intrinsic rela
tion between gold and silver, the main
tenance of a parity between the two
metals, as mentioned in this law, can
mean nothing lees than a maintenance
ot such parity in the estimation and
confidence of the people who use onr
money in daily transactions. Manifest
ly a maintenance of this parity can only
be accomplished, so far as it is affected
by these treasury notes and in the esti
mation of the holders of the same, by
giving such holders on their redemption
in coin either gold or silver, which they
prefer. It follows that while in terms
the law leaves the choice of coin to be
paid on such redemption to the discre
tion of the Secretary of the Treasury.
uie eserciwe ui mis uiecrciiuu, n uppoaw
to the demands of the holder, is entirely
inconsistent with the effective beneficial
maintenance of a parity between the
two metals. If both gold and silver are
to serve us as money, and if they to
gether are to supply to our people a
safe, stable currency, the necessity of
preserving this parity is obvious. Such
necessity has been repeatedly conceded
in the platforms of both political parties
and in our federal statutes. It is now
here more emphatically recognized than
in the recent law which repealed the
provision nnder which the bullion now
on hand was purchased.
DOLLARS or EQUAL VALl'B.
This law insists on the maintenance of
a parity in the value of the coins of the
two metals and the equal power of every
dollar at all times in the markets and in
the payment of debts. The Secre
tary of the Treasury has therefore,
for the best of reasons, not only com
plied with the every demand for the
redemption of these treasury notes in
gold, but the present situation, as vrell
as the letter and spirit of the law, ap
pear plainly to justify, if they do not
enjoin upon him, the continuation of
such redemption. The conditions I have
endeavored to present may be thus sum
marized: First The government has purchased
and now has on hand sufficient silver
bullion to permit the coinage of all the
silver dollars necessary to redeem in
such dollars the treasury notes issued
for the purchase of said silver bullion,
and enough besides to coin, as gain or
seigniorage, 55,156,681 additional stand
ard silver dollars.
Second There are .outstanding and
now in circulation treasury notes issued
in payment of the bullion purchased
amounting to $152,951,280. These notes
are legal tender in payment of all debts,
public and private, except when other
wise expressly stipulated ; they are re
ceivable for customs, taxes and all pub
lic dues; when held by banking associa
tions tliev may be counted as part of
their lawful reserve, and are redeemed
by the government in gold at the option
of the holders. , "
ADVANTAGEOUS ATTRIBUTES. -
These advantageous attributes "were
deliberately attached to these notes at
the time they were issued; they are
fully nnderstood by our people to whom
such notes have been distributed as cur
rency, and have inspired confidence in
their safety and value, and have un
doubtedly thus induced their continued
and contented use as money, instead of
an anxiety for their redemption.
OBJECTIONS TO THE HILL.
Having referred to some incidents
which I deem relevant to the subject, it
remains for me to submit a specific
statement of my objections to the bill
now under consideration. This bill con
sists of two sections, excluding the ont
which merely appropriates a sum suffi
cient to carry the act into effect.
The first section proviues lor tne im
mediate coinage of the silver bullion in,
the treasury, which represents the so
called gain or seigniorage which would
arise from coining all the bcUion on
hand, which gain or seigniorage this
sections declares to be t55,156,6Sl. It
directs the money so coined, or certifi
cates issued thereon, shall be used in
payment of public expenditures, and
provides that if the needs of the treas
ury demand it the Secretary of the
Treasury may, in his discretion, issue
silver certificates in excess of such coin
age, not exceeding the amount of the
Honors World's Fair.

seigniorage in said section authorized to
COINING THE BEXAINDER.
The second section directs that as
soon as possible after the coinage of this
seigniorage the remainder of the bullion
held by the government shall be coined
into legal tender silver dollars, and that
they shall be held in the treasury for
the redemption of the 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 reissued,
but shall be canceled 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 the treasury
notes issued for the purchase of silver
bullion to be 'coined.
' THE ENTIBB BILL IS FAULTY.
The entire bill is most unfortunately
constructed ; nearly every sentence pre
sents uncertainty and invites contro
versy as to its meaning and intent. The
first section is especially faulty in this
respect, and it is extremely doubtful
whether its language will permit the
consummation of its supposed purposes.
I am led to believe that the promoters
of the bill intended in this section to
provide for the coinage of the bullion
constituting the gain, or seigniorage as
it is called, into standard silver dollars,
and yet there is positively nothing in
the section to prevent its coinage into
any description of silver coins now au
thorized under any existing law. I sup
pose this section is also intended, in
case the needs of the treasury called for
money faster than the seigniorage bul
lion could actually be coined, to permit
the issue of silver certificates in advance
of such coinage; bnt its language would
seem to permit the issuance of such cer
tificates to double the amount of the
seigniorage as stated, one-half of which
would not represent an ounce of silver
in the treasury. "
OTHER REABOXS FOB DISAPPROVAL.
In stating the other and more impor
tant reasons for my disapproval of this
section I shall, however, assume that
under its provisions the treasury notes
issued in payment for silver bullion will
continue to be redeemed as heretofore in
silver or gold, at the option of the hold
ers, and that if when they are presented
for redemption or reach the treasury in
any other manner, there are in the treas
urv coined silver dollars equal in nomi
nal value to such treasury notes, then
and in that ease the notes will be d
stroyed and silver certificates to an f;ual
amount substituted. I am convinced
this scheme is ill-advised and dangerous.
As an ultimate result of its operation
the treasury notes which are legal ten
der for all debts, public and private,
and which are redeemable in gold or sil
ver at the option of the holder, will be
replaced by silver certificates, which,
whatever may be their character and
description, will have none of these
qualities. In anticipation of this result
and as an immediate effect, the treasury
notes will naturallv appreciate in value
and desirability. The fact that gold
can be realized upon them, and the
further fact that their destruction has
been decreed when they reach the treas
ury, must tend to their withdrawal from
general circulation, to be immediately
presented for gold redemption, or to be
hoarded for presentation at a more con
A REDUCTION OF GOLD.
The sequel of both operations will be
a large addition to the silver currency in
our circulation and a corresponding re
duction of gold in the treasury. Argu
ment has been made that these things
will not occur at once, because a Ions
time must elapse before the coinage of
anything but the seigniorage can be en
tered upon. If the physical effects of
the execution of the second section of
this bill are not to be realized until far
in the future, this may furnish a strong
reason why it should not be passed so
much in advance, but the postponement
of its actual operation cannot prevent
the fear and loss of confidence and the
nervous prostration which would imme
diately follow its passage and bring
about its worst consequences.
I regard this section of the bill as em
bodying a plan by which the govern
ment would be obliged to pay out its
scanty store of gold for no other purpose
than to force an unnatural addition of
silver money into the hands of the peo
ple. This is an exact reversal of the
policy which safe finance dictates, if
we are to preserve the parity between
gold and silver and maintain a Sensible
I hope a way will present itself in the
near future for the adjustment of our
monetary affairs in such a compre
hensible and conservative manner as
will afford to silver its proper place in
our currency, but in the meantime I
am extremely solicitous that whatever
action we take on this subject may be
such as to prevent loss and discourage

struction of confidence in our financial

Paris. TLtb crisis which was threat
ened by the action of the Senate in re
fusing to take action on the , measure
which had previously passed the Cham
ber of Deputies, creating a Ministry of
Colonies instead of leaving that depart
ment directed, as has been the case up
to the present, has been averted, and
Premier Casimir-Perier is again victori
ous. When the Premier learned of the
failure to act npon the matter referred
to, he promptly called a special session
of the Senate and allowed it to become
known that he would not remain in
power without a vote of confidence on
the part of the Senate. In the Senate
after a conciliatory speech from the
Premier the Chamber of Deputies bill
creating a Ministry of the Colonies was
approved by a vote of 226 to 32, and
later the Senate agreed to the grant
asked for in regard to the creation of
this new ministry by a vote of 316 to 81.

DISASTER AT 8AXTAKDER.
The Buried Cargo of the Cabo Hachicac
Struck by Diver.
Madrid. A dispatch received from
Santander says that ten men were killed
and thirty injured by an explosion of
dynamite in the harbor. The dynamite
was in one of the many cases of explo

with the wreck of the steamer Cabo Ma
chicaco. Ever since the steamer was
blown to pieces divers have worked in
termittently npon the wreck, and have
raised a considerable quantity of miscel

Santander. Recently the divers reported
that they were getting near the dyna
mite, but it was supposed that the ex
plosive hac1 lost its power after so many
weeks in water. Three divers were down
when the explosion came. Ten men
were out in a boat ever the spot where
the divers were at work. Some fifty men
were at work at the docks. The cause
of the explosion is not known exactly.
The report shook Mendez Nunez street,
which skirts the quay, along its whole
length. The small boat just off the spot
was splintered, and seven men were
killed. The three divers were also killed,
and thirty men along the quay were in
jured seriously. The mangled and black
ened corpses of the dead were scattered
all along the quay, and the scene was
one that defied description. Among the
dead are Don Manuel deXapena, Pro
vincial Governor, and a number of other
