Tho last report of the secretary of the
treasury shows that tho national bnuks
( alone are lending ucarlv $2,000,000,000.
i or about double tho highest amount
that any one estimates there is in
all forms in this country. Tho amount
lent iu other ways cannot be less
than ten times as much as tho banks
lend probably it is many times ten
.but at the lowest estimate it would take
more money than is in esistivnce to pay
A per cent, interest on the loans. The
result is tho owners of tho little money
in existence are quietly absorbing all
the proiicrtv in tho country as compen
sation for tho use of their credit. They
aro hoarding their cash and lending
their debts. Colorado Farmer.

A Government Pawnshop.
The bankers object to the land loan
and snbtreasury methods of getting
money into circulation among the peo
plo on tho grounds that it is making a
pawnshop of tho government to secure
tho loans. Let's see. When tho nation
al hanker wants money he goea to tho
government and pawns 'his bonds for
nine-tenths their face value. Ho re
ceives tho money and leaves the bonds
