, The national bank actof Feb. 85, 1803,
amended June 3, 1864, requires a de
posit of United States bonds in amount
"not less than thirty thousand dolli.rs
nor less than one third of the capital
stock paid in."
These bonds arc, or are exchanged
' for, registered bonds bearing interest,
and upon this deposit the bank is "en
titled to receive from the comptroller of
currency circulating notes of different
denominations, iu blank, registered and
counter signed as hereinafter provided,
equal In amount to i'O per centum of the
amount of said bonds at the par value
thereof, if beariug Interest at a rate not
less than than 5 per centum per annum;
and at no time shall the total amount of
such notes issued to any such associa
tion exceed the amouut at such time ac
tually paid in tf its capital stock"
The above quotations from tho bank
ict furnish answers to the prccedipg
questions seal in by our correspondent,
ilo and his Alliance brethren have ap
parently fallen luto the error of suppos
ing that the working capital of a national
bank is simply the new currency it puts
into circulation secured by U. S. bonds.
If a national bank is started now it must
purchase bonds at their market value,
which is above par, and can receive on
these only 00 per cent of the face value
in currency. It must also in the largsr

Writer No. 3 on Electric Lighting.
A writer lo the Oct. olli Isue of the
Faumk.ks' Alliance criticizes the views
of a previous contributor, Mr. X. 8.
Baird, and questions the truth of tabu
lated statements s'vu by him respect
ing the cost of electric lighting under
municipal ownership in different cities
The later writer. Mr. C. E. Burrows of
Walla Walla, Washington, furnishes no
facts to disprove the figures given by
Mr. Baird, but mentions another city
whose cot of lighting had been incor
rectly reported," and seeks to destroy
credence la the statements tabulated bv
pointing out a wide difference between
the reported cost of the lighting of two
of tho several cities named.
It is of course possible that the city ol
Paris, 111., whose cost of lamps is re
ported by Mr. Baird much lower than
any other city, has been erroneously re
ported, by some such simple oversight
as a change of figure not detected by a
proof reader, but the error, if an error,
does not affect the testimony of the
other ciiiei, eigh'. i number, tli? aver
sge cost of who.se lights is aWut 100 per
cent less than what Lincoln is under a
ten year contract to pay.
I understand Mr. Hnrro.vs is himself
president of an electric light company
in his own city, aud this may explain
why he cltos hearsay testimony, that
under iniciual ownership a city in
British Columbia is paying for lights
three limes what it was costing it under
private ownership. But hearsay test
imony, unsupported by facts and iigurcs
vouched for by the proper authorities,
is of no valuo. Wo have facts and fig
ures properly vouched for which estab
lish the faut that Lincoln is paying about
twice what it costs to light her streets.
and to these wo invite Mr. Burrows' at
lentiun. Mr. Burrows says: "I do not
believe there is a place in the United
Stales where a sixteen candle power in-
candescont electrio lamp can be fur
nished at a cost of 93.1.1 per year."
In rej,ly we copy from tho New Nation
of April 11, 1801, a letter from tho may
or of Chariton, Iowa, as follows:

THE COMING CONFLICT.
The advance sheets of a new book, en
titled "The Coming Conflict,"have been
sent us hj tho author, Mr. W.N. Palmer
of Boono, Nebraska. It is an argument
iu favor of the government ownership
of tho railroads, and tho strongest and
best we have yet seen. The author is
thoroughly acquainted with tho bmiuess
methods, expenses, agencies and details
of the present private ownership system,
and ha proves it a monopolistic system,
a wasteful, uneconomic system, a system
which burdens the people with an ex-
penso tsr irausion.auon wnu-u is ut j
least twico what it ought to bo, twice
what it would be if conducted by the
. . . . . 1 i- t..i.
The author reasons not as a special
pleader, but as a business man would,
and meets the objections which cautious
conservative men raise in favor of pri
vate ownership in a way to remove siuh
objections nnd fears from every mind.
It is a book that should fce read by every
voter, and we hopo the publishers will
briug it to the a tention of the whole
reading, Ihinklug public.
Set-Back for the Standard Oil Company.
Judue llawley in tho United States
court.Oct. 12th, made a decision of great
importance to the TacUio coast. It was
iu the case of tho Standard Oil company
vs. the Southern Tacit'ie company and
Whittier, Fuller & Co.
Tho latter linn had a contract wih
the Southern Pacilic company to haul
oil for them in certain kinds of eais.
Tho Standard Oil company claimed that
this car was a patented invention which
it controlled and secured a temporary
injunction restraining the rauroao com
pany from hauling hittier. Fuller &
Co '6 oil In such cars. Judtto llawley
decided that tho cars hi question are not
patented iuvontious and that any one
has a right to use thorn.

the Standard Oil company could have
no competition on thii coast unless otner
lirms could use them as well.

the Subject. .
In Mr. Andrew Carnegie's "A-B-C
of Money" In the North Amer
ican Review, he says: "It w. ad
visable for these nations (L e.
gold-basis) to agree upon the value in
gold which would be accorded 1o sil
ver, and this was fixed at 15 ounces
to one of gold."
Pleaio note this was tho market
value of silver as a motal with gold us
a motaL Tho nations did not attempt
to givo any fictitious value to silver,
but only Inherent value." Then he
snys, "Each nation ngreod "to redeem
all the silver coin it had issued in gold
at tho valuo fixed."
I nevor beard "the nations of tho
fiivt rank" charged with Idiocy be
fore. Thore is no sense In the agree
ment of value, if either Is to be re
deemed in the other. Why not re
deem gold with silver? The great
virtue (?) of using gold or silver for
money is because they have "fixity of
valuo" inherent in the metal and
"not dependant on law." When gold,
silver, or treasury notes are issued as
money, tho only obligation Hie gov
ernment is under, is to see that their
legal tender functions are resj ected by
ail of its citizens as well as its own
agents, llo then goes on to show
that Britain has not one dollar in
silver in her resorvoa; but It is nil
"in the one, steady, unchangeable
basis-nrtiele gold." "Wise old
bird, the doar mother-land sits upon
her perch whistling away, out of all
danger from ihU 'silver trouble.' "
She may, in some time to corao, whistle
out of the other Bide of her mouth.
He says it is dangerous to attempt
to fix a new value for silver, "for it
might fall so low xhat 25 or 80 ounces
of it would not be worth more than an
ounce of gold." Ho seems to forget
that such men as (l'effer, Simpson, et
al) nro now forging to the front may
conclude that it is better to put only
16 grains in the gold dollar rather
than to put 615 grains in tho silver
duller; especially since the most se
rious objection to the silver dollar is
its great weight and bulk. But hear
this "advice to the people:"
"If free coiuage of silver be serious
ly entertained avoid silver; when you
lay by anything let it be gold. There
is no use In tho poor taking any risks;
whatever happens, you can sleep
soundly upon gold,"
This is very queer advice to give
to iho poor, (as they could not get any
If they tried) if he moans to do them
a favor. Ho knows well enough that
silver will Uike its old place, of 3 to 5
per cent above gold that it occupied
