PLAN OF BANKERS TO DESTROY
Bank Notes That Draw a Double Kate
of Interest Is the Kind of Souuii
Money Shylock Wants lloyeott Their
The New York Voice, Aug. 15.
Little by little it becomes apparent
that the associated bankers ol this
country are gathering their forces for
a mighty struggle during the next ses
sion of congress.
No public proclamation has Ken is
sued and no brass bands are beisg em
ployed; but unless all Indications are
misleading there is on foot a definite,
concerted movement that is likely to
change the whole line of battle oa the
The purpose of the bankers is this:
To strike with all their power for a
law that shall put out of existence once
for all the entire issue of United States
notes known as greenbacks.
The plea which they will make will
be the highly patriotic plea that this
action is necessary to rescue the treas
ury from its perilous position and es
tablish the nation's finances on a firm
The plea, will be a false one, the pat
riotic professions will be delusive, and
the result of the action proposed will
be a far-reaching disaster Whose ulti
mate consequences are Incalculable.
Here are the facts. There are In
Circulation to-day about $340,000,000 of
greenbacks. Those greenbacks repre
sent a policy in direct antagonism to
the policy underlying the national
bank system, and they have from the
beginning been regarded by the bank
ers with hostile eyes. They Insisted on
their retirement as part of the plan of
resumption twenty years ago, and this
retirement was actually begun. So im
mediate and stern was the popular pro
tect, however, that that provision of the
law was repealed and the greenbacks
preserved as a part of the national cur
rency. From that day to this the bank
ers have sulkily watched for their op
portunity and they think they have It
now. Whether they have It or not they
cannot safely wait any longer. The
national bankers' convention held a few
weeks ago took steps to urge upon con
gress the retirement of the greenbacks.
The journals that best represent the
thought of the organization have been
for six months with Infinite tact and
kill, testing the public temper on the
subject. The public has not taken
alarm. The time seems auspicious.
The plans have been consummated.
Tho bill is already being prepared for
effecting the desired end.
What is the motive behind all this?
The ostensible motive is this: The
greenbacks are exchangeable on demand
St the United States treasury for gold.
They are the vehicle by moans of which
the gold reserve has been taken out of
the treasury. On the face of affairs
they are to blame for the treasury's ro
cent troubles. What more plausible,
therefore, than to 6ay,, as the bankers
do, that the real remedy is to retire
these greenbacks as fast as redeemed,
destroying them at once instead of re
Issuing thorn and thus putting a stop
to the "endless chain of buckets'' that
Is carrying away our gold?
This is the argument. It is plausible.
Is it sound or sincere?
No. - On tho contrary it Is Impossible,
when one Is acquainted with the facts,
either to believe that the proposed ac
tion will remedy matters or to believe
that the bankers believe it will.
In the first place the greenbacks have
not caused the treasury's troubles, for
they have circulated for twenty yearu
without trouble of any kind, and condi
tions, eo far as they ure concf-rned, are
the same now as heretofore. The gold
drawn from the treasury has been
drawn for export. Destroying the green
backs would not destroy the demand for
gold for export nor render it any more
difficult to obtain it. The situation1!
would be as Matthew Marshall", the
financial writer of the Sim, says it
"If the legal tenders were retired all
debts including bank deposits would
become really payable ' i gold, though
noralnally in sliver nlsa. The exporter
of gold would demand It from the bauks
and the banks would have Hitter to
p:iy it or to refuse to pay It. If they
paid it the country would lone the gold
Just the same ns It 1 losing It now, and

the banks when it wants gold wltb
which to pay the interest on its bonds.
This is part ot t he reason for the pro
ject of the bankers.
Another and similar reason Is thai
the greenbacks are a constant object
lesson to the people tlint Ihe govern
ment Itself can supply a sufe, sound,
end convenient currency ns well as the
banks. Tho greenback la a constant
threat to the bank-note. And now,
when the bonds on which the bank
note Issue is bated arc near maturity,
the whole bank-note system la near an
end, unless the f340,000,000 of green
backs can be forced out of existence,
leaving a vacuum that must bo filled
by something else. This Is why tho
banks cannot wait any longer, Thii
Is why they have seized the present
pretext so promptly. This Is why, as
we more than suspect, they propose '0
keep us on the ragged edge of another
financial panic until congress Is fright
ened into the retirement of greenbacks.

It is thought that the contest be

overshadow the currency question and
other isMies. There Is so little differ
ence between the republican and demo
cratic platforms on silver that the cur
rency question Is now believed to be
disposed of In Ohio, but the tariff will
be kept prominent, as the parties dif
fer widely on that Issue, and Governor
Campbell Is expected to arraign the
republican state administration of tho
past four years as severely as he did In
the previous campaigns. Press Die

so that they could swap easier.

KEEPING OUR CREDIT.
FARMED OUT TO A SYNDICATE
A Cae of the Wolvn Cuiirilln the
Liiit Ami They Talk of Cleveland
for a Third Term I'roin a OuM Ta
per. Fellow countrymen, read the follow
ing. It comes from the editorial col
umns of the San Francisco Chronicle:
Wall street, the money power as an
organized Influence, If not, indeed, an
organic body, Is aiming at nothing short
of tho absolute domination and control
of tho finances of the national govern
ment. If anything were needed to con
vince the country of this fact the stu
died efforts that are now being made to
defend and Justify the Infamous con
tract with tho Rothschilds-Morgan syn
dicate and to laud the money kings who
compose the syndicate as national ben
efactors, tho fulsome articles and state
ments that are now appearing simultan
eously In the magazines and papers of
tho country ought to satisfy any Intel
ligent American that the Shylocks who
bold tho governments of Europe In
their hands are seeking to get a firm
grasp upon the United States.
There Is certainly something signifi
cant In the sudden activity of the pen
servants of the syndicate. In the Re
view of Reviews for July there is an ar
ticla by the editor of Dradstreet's writ
ten for the confessed purpose of show
ing that If it had not been for the gold
purchase contract the credit of the gov
ernment would have been wrecked, and
that the American people are, therefore,
beholden to the syndicate for having
"protected the treasury." Protected the
treasury from what, from whom? Why,
It was these sann money sharks and
their associates who were draining the
troasory of gold for the very purpose
of forcing another Issue of bonds.
The portraits of the American mem
bers of the syndicate are given In the
article and they are spoken of, as al
ready said, as national benefactors.
There Is also the picture of Lawyer
Stotson of New York, the former law
partner of tho president, "who drew up
(ho contract." But there Is no mention
in the article of the onerous and In
famous terms and conditions of the deal
which netted the syndicate some $10,
000,000. Protectors of the treasury!
llenefactors of the nation! Why, the
members of this syndicate are the mon
umental Shylocks of the age.
It will only be a few months when
congress will meet and when the out
rageous affair will be or should be In
vestigated to the bottom. It Is mora
than likely that the articles that are
now appearing, of which the one Ju.U
mentionod Is only an example, are put
forth for the purpos of forestalling tho
tctlon of congrf.

"maintain" the treasury gold reserve,
and In the Issue of last Saturday, as
telegraphed to the financial columns of
the Chronicle, the paperjisscrted with
much vehemence that nothing had oc
curred, particularly In the recent ship
ments of gold, to "shake confidence in

In the Pennsylvania republican con
vention Congressman Dalzell, discuss
ing the money plank In the platform,
said; "There Is not an Industry that
does not demand the maintenance of
sound money, and by sound money I
mean money good at par In any market
in the civilized world. An Impression
has gono abroad that there Is a free
silver party In Pennsylvania, and that
that party Is republican. Hence, In
my Judgment, there Is a crying neces
sity for tho republican party In Penn
sylvania In this convention assembled
to doclaro Itself unequivocally against
the free and unlimited coinage of si!
ver at any other ratio than that fixed
by International agreement. There
are thousands of republicans west of
tho Mississippi who claim that the re
publican platform as adopted at Min
neapolis means the free and unlimited
coinage of sliver. I want to get rid of
that Impression. In order that there
may be no straddling, and In order that
no man cSn stand up and say Pennsyl
vania republicans are seeking to catch
votes by straddling the free silver ques
tion, add to your platform that the re
publican party of Pennsylvania de
clares It Is opposed to the free and un
limited coinage of silver In any other
ratio than that fixed by Internatonal
The convention complied with Dal
zcH's command by adding to It meaning
less Jumble of tangled relative and
parenthetical phrases the declaration
ot its "opposition to tho debasement of
the national currency by the admis
sion of sliver to free and unlimited
coinage at the arbitrary ratio of 16
Tho first part of the money plauk
adopted Is the same old double-back-action
flip-flap Grover Cleveland has
been performing; "We accept unre
servedly the determination enunciated
by the republican national convention
of 1892 that wo demand the use of both
gold and sliver money with such re
strictions and under such provisions to
be determined by legislation as will se
cure the maintenance ot the parity of
values of the two motals so that the
purchasing and debt-paying power of
the dollar whether of silver, gold or
paper shall at all times be equally
faithful to the republican party."
They want money that Is "faithful to
the republican party."
Money U what controls the republic
an party and It wouldn't be good pol
ities to have money In this country
that was faithful to all tho people.
Hounds funny, don't It?
The Olobe-Demorrat, leading west
ern republican paper, says: "The
money plank shows that tho Pennsyl
vania republicans are lu line with their
party all over the country on that Is

Milwaukee Advance: At the great
St. Louis conference of labor and re
form organizations where the organiza
tion was affected that resulted In the
Omaha convention, Miss Frances Wil-
lard was an honored guest and by
courtesy was made a member of th
committee on' resolutions. This com
tnltleft was very large, having more
than 100 members, and a very strong
fight was made by Miss Willard and
other prohibitionists In favor of plac
ing a prohibition plank In the platform.
The fight lasted from 11 o'clock p. m.
until about 3 o'clock In the morning,
and the principal contestants were Miss
Wlllard on one side and Robert Schill
ing on the other. The latter held that
prohibition was not only a violation of
personal liberty but. Impracticable and
that It could not be enforced as long
as poverty drove people to drink. His
argument was that people well fed and
well educated needed no prohibition,
and that drunkenness was the result
of misery and destitution.
Miss Willard seems to have adoptel
this view now. We find the following
sentence quoted In the Representative,
Ignatius Donnelly's paper:
We used to say intemperance was tn
cause of poverty. Now we have com
pleted the circle of truth by saying
poverty causes intemperance, and tb
under-paid, under-sheltered, wage
earning teetotaler deserves a thousand
times more credit than the teeetotaler
who is well paid, well fed and well
sheltered. In the slums they drink ta
forget. We should make life some
thing they would gladly remember; so
would you. Our objects are the same.
Let us clasp hands In the unity of spirit
and tho bond of peace.
All honor to Miss Willard. If every
one of our prohibition friends would
lake the same position, a union of re
form forces would be easily accom

And so it has been at all the demo
