The Government's Duty to Furnish Money on
Proper Security. (
Editorial Correspondence San Francisco Argo
naut. Intent upon the object of proselyting
with the members of congress in the di
rection of the free and unlimited coin
age of silver, I approached our senior
senator to ascertain his views. To my
surprise, I ascertained that Senator Stan
ford not only favored the free coinage of
silver, but he left the impression on my
mind that he entertained still more gen
erous and comprehensive opinions in
reference to increasing the circulating
currency of the country.
Senator Stanford said that it was the
duty of government to issue currency
upon the value of real property, or to
authorize the establishment of national
banks, with power to put legal tender
notes in circulation upon such security,
which should be guaranteed in their re
demption by the treasury of the United
States and why not? He says if a na
tional bank purchases bonds issued by
the general government, and, o the ex
tent of 90 cents on the dollar, is author
ised t put notes in circulation as
currency, of which the general govern
ment guarantees the payment, if bullion
from the gold mines may be taken to
the mint and have its value fixed by the
impression of a die, if silver bullion may
be accorded free coinage because of its
standard and fineness, why may not a
farm or a town property of established,
fixed and certain value be used s.s the
basis of a sound and healthful
can see no reason," ne says, "wny
II Mr 1
land or town property, having attained
a permanent value as indicated by the
assessor's estimate, or ascertained by im
partial valuators, might not be used as
security for currency with as much con
fidence as the paper obligations of gov
ernment or as the metals produced from
"I have seen the financial world twice
driven from its prosperity, by the fear
lest the excessive production of metals
should prove valueless for use as money.
"When the immense output of gold from
the placers , of California and Australia
reached their maximum, the financial
world underwent a panic, lest gold
should become too plentiful for safety,
and when the large discoveries of silver
in Nevada began to be felt, the same
alarm pervaded financial circles, lest
the white metal should become too
plentiful for any other use than in the
arts. The best money is that based upon
the wealth of the nation and the pros
perity and honor of all its people. Cur
rency that has for its security the real
property of the country is more surely
guaranteed than by bullion produced
from the mines and stamped at the
national mints. The country owns no
mines, and who shall say that the time
is distant when private ownership shall
hold in trusts all the mines and be en
titled to all the royalties ? And of what
value will be the constitutional provision
that gives government the right to coin
money, if it has neither gold nor silver
to coin and stamp ?
"To coin and issue money for circula-"
tion is not the most important function
of government. When it is considered
that the congress of the United States,
the legislatures of the several states, and
the municipal bodies of incorporated
cities are armed with the power of taxa
tion and individual assessors clothed
with the right of valuation, for purposes
of taxation, and that for the non-payment
of taxes the tax collector may sell,
without judicial investigation or decree
of a court, without reservations of the
rights of minors, absent persons, or per
sons of unsound mind, how much less
significant seems the power to coin
money a nd control its volume of circu
"When it shall be understood that
money is to be issued by government for
the benefit of the great class of producers
who demand it for industrial purposes,
and that it is not created for the benefit
of usurers to sweat it, and of gamblers to
risk it, and of misers to hoard it, of mil
ionaires to accumulate, and spendthrifts
to distribute it in the gratification of their
luxurious tastes, then some of the errors
which nowpervade the whole financial
system will have been dissipated and the
uses of money will be much better un
derstood.' Then the congress of the
United States will not look to Wall street
and national bankers, successful money
kiDfis, and successful plutocrats alone
for their advice as to what kind of money
should be used or what volume should be
put forth. When this reformation shall
take place, then some successful manu
facturer or merchant, some intelligent
mechanic, some broad minded business
man, some planter, farmer, fruit grower,
or laborer, may be invited to hold the
portfolio of treasurer, or, better than
that, some wise economist who under
stands and appreciates financial laws in
their broader comprehension, may be
asked to preside at the head of a depart
ment and give an annual report, which
states all the facts, and not suppress or
misrepresent any economic truth in the
interest of the money class.
"There are two distinct classes in this
government, and the division lines that
mark them grow more well defined each
revolving decade. They are the debtor
and creditor class, the borrowers and the
lenders. On the upper side of this divid
ing line there is intelligence, wise and
prudent calculations, immense deal of
good luck, industry and patient waiting,
economy and self denial, moral virtures
of the kind that worship both God and
mammon. On the other and lower side
an industrial and producing multitude
of toilers who, from adverse fate, hard
luck, exacting appetites, cross roads that
- lead to perplexing labyrinths where men
are lost, ill-health, marriages not prudent
atttended with ; large families, en
gaging in legitimate employment indus
triously pursued, sometimes leading to
disastrous results. The farm indus
triously tilled finds itself mortgaged to
' the usurer; mechanical employment in
tellieently and faithfully pursued, leads
oftimes throught toil to bankruptcy
'' "A civil war imposes $3,000,000,000 of
burdens upon the north and visits $3,
000,000,000 of calamities ujton the south,
to increase the population below the
line and gives the class above it a profit
of $3,000,000,000 to swell its fortunes.
"It was a wise provision of the patri
archial period that the recurring jubilee
should afford the debtor class an allevia
tion of its more insupportable burdens,
and it would be well if in an huried race
through the higher civilization of modern
centuries there was at least once in a hun
dred years a resting place where tired
humanity could regain its spent forces
and have a new start in the race of life."
In conversation with Seator Stanford,
I did not fail to urge all objections which
suggested themselves to my mind in op
position to the working of this benificent
money plan. Of course I was not un
mindful of the great bugbear of inflation,
which is so distressing a possibility to
the men of plethoric money bags. His
, "I have never observed any calamity
resulting from the circulation of too
much money; I have known of no local
ity or era when there was too great activ
ity among the producing classes. 1
never knew or read of any country where
there were too many houses , m process
of erection, or too plentiful raiment, or
too abundant food, nor where transpor
tation of products were too cheap and
rapid. I do not recognize high prices of
labor as leading to disastrous results
anvwhere. In those countries under
conditions in which labor is inadequately
compensated, countries of redundant
population where money is scarce and
industrial activities are not remuner
ative, I have heard of poverty and dis
tress, but where activities are pressing
in the direction of productive industries,
where money is plenty and labor well
repaid; I recall no distress not arising
from accidental causes, and I presume
no one would question the fact that the
system of finance suggested would not
excite to abnormal activity all industrial
"Money is a force. It is the force that
underlies our civilization and pushes it to
the greatest possible activity. Money im
pels the merchant to his most venture
some daring, the mechanic to exploiting
his most inventive genus, the scientist to
the most exhaustive research, the artist
to the most earnest and patient endeav
ors, and the toiler in every direction to
the accomplishment of the most earnest
efforts for success. The power of money
and the hope of its attainment are the in
centive to nearly all humanities most
earnest and most honorable exertions,
and I presume no one will question the
fact that cheap, safe and abundant
money will contribute largely to the in
dustrious activities of the country, and
whatever other results may be accom
plished, that the debter class would be
largely and permanently benefited.
"That a currency based upon real es
tate values under limited estimates
would increase activities in all indus
trial employments, I have no manner of
doubt, nor do I think such a volume of
currency, properly limited by legislative
restriction, would recall the days of
George Law, reproduce the Mississippi
bubble or the Dutch tulip speculation.
Why should the man who has mortgaged
for one-half or one-quarter its value the
accumulations of his life, be more care
less in the expenditure of his resources
than he would if he had hypothecated
his property under an interest bearing
mortgage to a usurer for coin, the inter
est upon which he must pay whether he
uses his money or not ? The national cur
rency I would thus provide should bear no
interest and should the borrower retain it
in his hand unused, it would be ready for
return to the national treasury whenever
called for. If, without bearing interest,
this currency could be used for the re
tiring of an "interest bearing mortgage,
it would serve a useful purpose, nor
would it operate as a hardship to the
payee, because he could use lawful
.money in the thousand active employ
ments of which the money lender knows
so well how to avail himself.
"Such an issue of national currency to
the extent of limited millions, properly
distributed, would have for its first effect
a quieting of all apprehensions of panic
or financial disasters that are sometimes
more hard to bear and more ruinous in
their consequences than the resulting
calamities. There would be no financial
panic possible and all disastrous proba
bilities be made avoidable. Business
activity would have breathed into them
new hfe. The danger of money panics
ocks gold and silver, in coin or bullion,
in the vaults of the banker and money
ender, and while gold and silver coin is
unusable, it is valueless no man is rich
and no community prosperous with
warded gold. Money, like any other
property, is worthless until actively em
ployed. The unused ax at the foot of
the tree is but a shining blade of worth-
ess steel till swung by the strong arm of
abor. The plow, rusting by the unturned
furrow , gives no promise of grain till
driven. A mountain of gold might glitter
in the sun's rays, valueless, useless, and
unemployed, till, at its base the toiler
swings his pick, plunges his drill, and
explodes his blasting sulphur.
"Wealth is timid, and in the presence
of danger hides. Labor is always courag
eous, works with cheery zeal when well
paid. Labor is never dangerous except
when desperate. Labor seldom riots
when well fed, well housed, well clothed
and well educated. God, in his benefi
cence, has provided everything that is
essential for the happiness of all man
kind. The beneficience of nature denies
none of the comforts of luxuries that the
human family may require, and all that
man does require is aepenaent upon
abor. The gem lies worthless in the
mine till dragged forth by discovery, and
does not disclose its beauties till the lapi
dary expends upon it his labor. The
finest lace that covers the tairest form
comes from unbroken flax through the
hatchel, the spindle, and the dexterious
manipulation of skillful fingers. The
mausoleum that hides Napolean in his
tomb, the sarcophagus where it is depos
ited, are worthless slabs of porphyry and
granite till subjected to the labor of the
chisel and the architect, is either bread,
nor meat, nor wine, nor raiment, comes
without intelligence and well directed
toil. Without education, the heavenly
bodies revolve in abounding and myster
ious terrors, agriculture tolas its arms
and sleeps in idle ignorance upon the
bosom of mother earth, whose breasts are
throbbing with plenty. Barbarism never
wakes to civilization, order never suc
ceeds to chaos, and safety never comes
to the human race till intelligence is in
the process of complete development.
Through paths of intelligent industry the
benencience of Frovidenceis only attain
able. "Our government and our civilization
make labor work in gyves and manacles
unless fully and generously paid. It is
the duty of the congress of the United
States to furnish its citizens with money
when they shall furnish the security .for
its issue that the government can safely
guarantee. The constitution of the
United States clothes its congress with
this power, it concedes it to no one else,
and it should be exercised for the fullest
benefit of the industrious, temperate,
economical, working class, for farmers,
mecnanics, and manuiacturing produc
"I am not unmindful of the fact that
there is distress and discontent abroad
in the most promising and prosperous of
an civilized countries; that willing la
borers are sometimes unemployed: that
mechanical, manufacturing, and mining
industries, corporations and great capi
talists are driven, from unavoidable
necessities,' to withhold employment,
when employment is ' essential to the
lahnrin immunity. I am advised that
farms are largely mortgaged; that in
Kentucky old estates are being sold for
taxes; that encumbrances are especially
numerous and burdensome in the state
of Iowa; that in New England old homes
are passing away from families that in
herited them; that in many parts there
exists financial embarrassments, that are
the causes of serious anxiety to the cot
ton growers, and that wheat producing
of our great west and northwest is not
in as satisfactory a condition as the ad
vance in agricultural machinery and
improved methods would seem to jus
tify. I hear of labor agitation, unrest
and disquietude in directions where I
cannot presume that they exist without
cause, or result from other than extreme
necessities, and if the system of finance
shall produce even temporary relief from
existing disquietudes and the alleviation
of existing distress, I shall hope that
period may be made available for the
discovery of legitimate means of per
manent relief .
"I have great confidence in the future
of this country, and abiding faith in the
intelligence that is coming from our free
common schools. I believe that educa
tion properly distributed to all classes of
our fellow citizens, to the children of
native birth and foreign immigration, to
the descendants of the "white and black
race, will work out ultimately the most
beneficial results to all the citizens of
"It is from this direction that I look
for the dawning light which shall en
circle our country with a halo of inex
tinguishable glory. Common sense,
resulting from education, will insure to
every child born upon our soil the in
heritance and protection of equal rights
and the operation of equal laws
for their preservation and maintenance.
I am myself a workingman, my inter
ests run in common with labor. I was
born to the inheritance of industrial
pursuits,, my sympathies are with the
class from which I came, and if I have
friends, as I hopte I have, in New York
or Txndon, in Wall or Threadneedle, or
Lombard streets, or associates among
the great bankers or men of large af
fairs, I trust I have not lost touch with
the class from which I came, nor sym
pathy for those who own the lands and
are engaged in their cultivation, nor for
the larger community of toilers whose
burdens are only relievable by honor
able and well paid labor."

We are now doinir considerable business
with the various Fanners' Alliances through
out the state, and are anxious to give
you all the Information we can. When load-
ing cars on the B. & M. R. remember they
Insist on their care being loaded according to
the marked capacity. ' Should you ioaa any
cars to be shipped over their line it wm be
important for you to load them as follows:
Load In 30,000 capacity cars anywnere be
tween 470 and 570 bushels of corn. Load in
40,000 capacity cars anywhere between 650 and
750 bushels. When we buy a car load of corn
from you we mean 500 bushels, as all eastern
and southern markets buy on that basis. So
in case you should sell three cars of corn you
could fill the same by loading three 30,000
pounds capacity cars with 500 bushels each, or
by loading two 40,000 pounds capacity cars
with 750 bushels each. Likewise a five car
eale would mean 2,500 bushels and cauld be
filled with five 30,000 cars, or three 40,000 cars
and one 30,000 car. This will apply to all other
lines of railroad In the state, although no
other lines are as strict as the B. & M. We
advise you to consult with your agent be
fore loading, and never load any car on the
B. & M. system with less than 26,000 pounds
even if the car should be marked a less ca
pacity. Always ask us for billing instruc
tions Deiore you 6nip to u. wetaunomi
time w make bids alwavs advise you where
we will want the grain shipped to. If there
is anything we can do to your interest please
advise us as it will be a pleasure for us to an
swer any questions and do you all the favors
we can whether we deal with you or not. As
for our responsibility I refer you to any bank
in vour town. Thev can easily ascertain
whether we are reliable or not through their
