The Principles of Money
(Uy K. L. McClurc.)
Tho total money supply ot gold In
the world Is about cloven billion dol
lars, nnd tho fluctuation In tho sup
ply and demand for gold ot each
country affects every other, nnd tho
(low of gold from ono country to
another supplies an accurate barom
eter ot business prosperity or depres
sion to financiers.
Tho hundreds of mllllont) of popu
lation In India and China receive
gold nnd silver for their exports be
rauso thcro Is no demand for our
products where tho vast population
Is reduced to abject poverty and Ig
norance. For centuries all tho gold
nnd silver flowing Into thoso coun
tries to purchaso their products has
disappeared from tho world's nionoy
supply ns completely as If It had
sunk Into tho depths of the sea.
All civilised countries have adopt
ed gold coin ns tho standard of value
tint dlspcnso with Its uso as a me
dium ot exchange by tho uso ot sub
stitutes for money that arc exchange
able for gold thus over 90 per cent
ot all exchanges nro undo In bank
checks which pet form the same func
tion ns money with much less risk,
labor and expense.
Dank deposits In thu United States
subject to withdrawal by check pay
able on demand amount to between
sixteen nnd twenty billion dollars.
Tho total supply of gold coin iu tho
United States Is about ono and one
halt billion dollars. Tho difference
between bank deposits and the total
supply ot gold coin is alt fictitious
money for which tho people pay in
terest to tho banks amounting to
many hundred million annually, oN
though tho money docs not exist: and
the moment a panic occurs credit Is
destroyed, the banks are closed and
tho country Is bankrupt.
The gold standard gives financiers
In control ot gold supply absolute
power to fluctuato the supply and
demand for money. Tbo banks being
tho greatest debtors of all are the
first to feel tbo effect of fluctuations,
and money kings dominate politics
and business of every country by
manipulating tho prosperity or de
pression ot business.
A central bank of some kind '
proposed ns the financial remedy In
all tho plans under discussion as It
any combination of debtors could
possibly sustain credit. Every bank
Public Playground Movement
The desire to know more about the
playground movement that has
spread so generally over tho United
States Is tbo Inevitable outgrowth cf
30 years of study of childhood and
youth In America. When tho child
Is regarded as tho real center of our
educational system, then play comes
to bo regarded as una ot tho most
important Instrumentalities In tho
education of tho race. The charac
teristic of normal yonth is play
hunger and tho Instinct rightly di
rected devclopcs mnsclc, physical
health, accuracy, precision, solf-ro-liance,
courago And moral stamina.
Four years ago there wcro 90 ci
ties In America that started play
grounds on .public taxation. Threo
years ago thcro woro 137 cities tnat
had playgrounds supported by public
taxation. Ono year ago thcro woro
336 similar playgrounds, Cleveland,
Ohio, is said to haro spent during
tbo last 10 years $10,000,000 on Its
parks. All of which makes us pause
to Inqulro what pluco has this Inno
vation in city government?
Tbo effort ot tho educational de
partment of tho Greater Medford
club to enlist public spirited citizens
In starting a public playground In
our city Is (meeting with hearty re
sponse. Tho careful observer of lo
cal conditions cannot fall ot being

children show in the walking tours

over crowding at the park on recrea
tion days bespeaks a need of more
room, more games and more organ

play movement Is well set forth In
tho following cxtra'ct from a recent
"The recreation movement seeks to

owes 100 per cent of all deposits
payablo In coin while tho total supply
of gold coin Is lcs than 10 per cent
of tho total deposits. No combina
tion of banks can chaugo tho despnr
Uy ot cash assets to liabilities, but
what legislation can do Is to glvo
tho banks power to pay depositors In
paper while all other debtors aro left
at tho mercy ot financiers In control
of gold supply.
Tho manipulation of money supply
under tho gold standard ghes tho
financier absolute power to fluctuato
tho initio of nil wealth In Inverse
ratio. Tho government Is ns help
toss as the banks and tho people, lo
calise there Is no remedy except by
complying with tho natural law of
supply and demunc, which regulates
value of all commodities.
Scientific money automatically reg
ulates nionoy supply to equal money
demand. It defines what money Is,
prohibits tho use of anything ns a
substitute for money, provides de
positaries for receiving deposits,
pays checks and Issues drafts on all
depositaries In the United States and
throughout tho money center of the
world freo ot exchange, receives Indi
vidual checks for collection nnd cred
its amount when paid without charge.
Tho treasury will receive the vast
revenue now extorted by tho bank
tn Interest, unclaimed deposits, and
lost checks. It will remove all risk
of loss to depositors, and the deposi
taries will tnko no risk of loss be

Tho officers ot tho banking depart
ment of depositaries cannot confer
nny favors, thotr duties will bo cler

all the advantages ot perfect banking
facilities without any of the risks In
nate to tho present banking system.
Financing public servlco corpora
tions under government ownership or
control could bo provided for by
Issuing money the samo as to states,
counties nnd municipalities.
Loans and discounts would contin
ue to bo handled by the banks,
thongh they would bo compelled to
open accounts with depositaries In
stead of paying and Issuing checks

bondholders, and tho government
monopoly of deposits, would render

8A1.KM, Ore., April IS. -The Ore
gon (las nnd Electric company,
which has plants at Ashland, Mcd
ford, tlrants Pass and Uosoburg, has
today asked tho state railroad com
mission whether It has tho authority
to prevent n competing public utllllj
from being grunted u franchise In t
Tho company alleges that It Is los
ing money on Its plants, especially
at Medford, and recites that W. J.
Hills lit Medford has begun negotia
tions to bring n competing company
to that city, following tho lefusul or
tho Oregon Una nnd Uloctrlc com
pany to glvo nil option on Its plant.
In thu opinion or the Oregon (las
and Electric company such n move
would ho almost criminal, as It Is
losing nionoy under present condi
tions. "It Is true." stnted Mr. Hills to
day, when shown tho foregoing dis
patch from Salem, 'that Dr. E. II.
French and myself have been work
ing upon a plan to start a gas plant
Iu the valley. Wo plan to manufao
turo tho gas from tlu roal deposits
Just cast of tho city, which show up
splendidly under test. Thero nro
1,000,000 tons of coal blocked out
now and each ton will produce 10,-
000 cubic feet ot gas.
"Uy using this coal wo can put
'dollar gas on the market. Wo first
figured with tbo Oregon (las and
Electric company, but our negotia
tions have ended. We can mako gas
from coal at 60 cents n thousand cu
bic feet, distribute it for 22 to 2.
cents, which lcaes a reasonable
profit at $1 a thousand. Thu pres
ent rate paid In the city Is from J 1.50
"Tho company doing business hero
at present says It costs them 97 cents
to manufacture and 22 cents to dli-
trlbutc. Their cost comes Iu tho
freight they pay to tho Southern Pa
cific to haul In oil.
"I do not sco how they can shut
nut a competing concern, oven If
thoy nro losing money."
