The Banks f Hew York City Ignore the Law and the Bights of Depositors. THEY ABE BU5HISG OH WIND- Silver and Paper Money Command Premium The Basks Likely to Collapse Any Day. A Startling Situation. The banks of New York City present 'a remarkable spectacle to the Ameri can people. In all parts of the west and south banks hare been forced to the wall by respecting the rights of de positors and observing the laws. The new comptroller of the currency has taken prompt and effective steps to close national banks in all other cities whenever the interests of depositors were in danger, or the requirements of the law were not fulfilled. But in New York city the banks are openly and boldly ignoring the rights of depositors and running regardless of law. Still the comptroller of the ourrency says nothing and does nothing. 1 The fact is that the banof New York city are "banging on by the akin of their teeth." By issuing clearing clearing house certificates they have held up the weaker banks, until the fate of all are linked together. . They must all stand or fall together. If they were compelled to keep the full amount of reserve required by law, and If they would pay depositors on demand as all other banks do, they would all collapse at once. Tom Patterson, the brilliant editor of the Rocky Mountain News, sizes up the situation in the following forcible language: TOM PATTEB80N TALKS. "The big New York banks may be able to pull through, but if they were in the west and Comptroller Eckles should treat them as he did the west ern baaks a majority of them would have been compelled to close their doors a week ago. "For more than a month now cash transactions between these banks have ceased. Balances, that in tbe west must be dally settled in cash, are set tled in the New York clearing house by loan certificates a new species of currency, altogetner un Known to law. More than 34,uou,uw oi tnia wind money has been issued, and it is upon this that the New York banks are run ning. "Every one of these banks have sus pended payment. The Denver, Mil waukee, Indianapolis and Louisville banks that closed their doors are not a whit worse than the bloviating, bully , ing, inflated New York banks. If the western banks bad elected to pay only checks for small amounts and refused te pay these for large sums as the New York banks have done and are now doing all tbe western banks would be runnlnsr today. Only Thursday the Chicago Trust Savings baas: sent its check for f 25,000 on the Western Na tional bank of New York for collection. The check was drawn against money on depwlt in the New York bank, but its president, K ray ton Ives, refused cash on the check and tenderedthese clear ing house certificates Instead. 'The First National, the Fourth Na tional, the Chase National and the City National bank, all of New York, wired the First National bank of Chicago a few days ago, that It, too, mutt receive clearinghouse certificates from them for Its money deposit in New York. Under pretense of a famine in small currency and to prevent depositors taking it out to sell at a premium, the dispatches anuounced that the banks am refusing to cah checks Unless they are well t aliened there is necessity for use of currency. 'What ball this about suspension? Why are not these hanks closed!' What understanding Is there between them aad the banking authorities in Wash teflon tfcat permit them to suspend payment t will and yet keep open doors? It Is a cerloua phenomenon national banks lsvtlg,.lsg who a depositor's cheek Is predated for pay meat, whether the chock holder is Wind to speculate on his ctwa money or not aal if tboy conclude fee dues, rvfur lag to honor the draft.

This showing from a group tf beaks with a raottal of ttUWW the hankie authorities should hot i emlovfe. lly he aWardirtary I makeshifts the banks may pull through, but if they don't what then? The gov ernment will ' be held an should be held to strict accountability by the tnouaandsof individuals and associa tions that will be the sufferers. "If it were not for the much abused and eastern-despised silver dollar the 60o dollar the New York banks would break into smithereens anyway, and there would be financial chaos much worse than there now is in Gotbam. "The first thing congress should do la to set the mints at work coining the 140 000,000 ounces of silver bullion now in the treasury into silver dollars and distribute them throughout tbe coun try and break up the close partnership now existing between treasury de partment and the the clearing house banks of New York." WING SHOTS, BY TBI CAPfAIM. ' Isn't it about time for Ed Roggen to write Another letter to John C. Watson suggesting that tbe "old-time machine men" get together and "make a litte medicine?" Why don't some of those fellows who are so anxious for a change of ratio sug gest reducing the amount of old In a dollar? That's the way the ratio wet changed in 1834. . Tobe Castor has been down to Wash ington administering some of his cele brated oil to the postoflke department Result: Republican postmasters are be ing oast out into an unirlendly world at a rapid rate. - The money power is busily engaged trying to "kill the goose that lays the golden egg." It they ever expect tbe people to pay their debts, they'd better stop destroying the money with which aione dents can te paid. . - - -. .. . ' i Bob Ingersoll says, '"This Is a bank ers' panic." Bob is quite right on this Eoint; but he is entirely wrong when e says "there's no such thing as hell." These very same bankers have been in hell ever since the string to the panic slipped out of their clutcnes. A few days ago Mr. Balfour, tbe great tory leader of England, addressed a convention of London bankers in be half of bimetallism. The convention heard him with great interest, and gave him a vote of thanks, but the sub sidized parrots who edit the dally papers of the United Stales never heard Of It. ; "When Henry George wrote his "Pro gress and Poverty," he said he didn't expect the people to accept his doc trines till they had lost their homre. Well, he won't have much longer to wait. If the present era of "unexam pled prosperity" continues for ten years more, Henry caa preach his doctrines to a nation of landlords and tenants. There never was a better time to try the experiment of establishing govern ment banks in this country. If a gov ernment bank were establish) in every county in Nebraska the people who have d.&wn their savings out of the so-called national banks would tumble over one another to deposit their money with uncle Sam. The hoarded currency would be put in circulation, and the panic would be at an end. "Labor creates all wealth." Certain ly. "The products of labor rightfully belong to the laborer." Of oor. Then who rightfully owns the wealth of this nation, the toilers who produced it, or the schemers, speculators, Shy locks and monopolists who have get control of it? Some of these days the peoplo may awaken to a sonic of their rights and claim their own.

The message fi President Cleveland to the estr session of congress was delivered m both houses shortly before 1 o'eloaji to-day.

I believe these things are principally chargeable to eons ressional legislation touch. in tbe purobase and coinage of silver by tbe general government This legislation Is em bodied in statute passed on tbe Mtb day ef July, 180, whlob was tbe culmination of much agitation of tbe subject Involved and whlob may be considered truce after the long straggle between tbe advooates of free silver eolnage and those intending to be more con. ervative. Undoubtedly the monthly nurohases bv the government of 4.S0,0UU oudoss of stiver, forced under that statute, were regarded by those interested In silver production as a certain guarantee of Its Increase in price. The result, however, has been entirely different, for Im mediately following a spasmodlo and slit-tit rise the price of silver began to fall after the passage or tbe act and has since reached the lowent point ever known. This dlsuppolntina' result ..as led to renewed and persistent effort in me direction or tree silver coinK8 Aieanwnue, not only are tne evil enects or the operation of the present law constantly ac cumulating but the result to which its exnou tlon must inevitably lead U becoming partu ble to all who give the 'east -sit ' nnancl suDjeots. . EFFECTS OF THU LAV. This law provide tha In payment for the 1(00,(100 ounces of allvei bullion which the seeretary of the treasury Is uommanded to purohase monthly, there snail be Issued treas ury notes redeemable on demand In gold or silver ootn. ut the discretion of the secretary of tbe treasury, and that the said notes may be reissued. It la, however, declared in the sat to be "the established policy of the United Slates to maintain the two metal upon a parity with each other upon the pres ent legal ratio or such ratio as may be pro vided bylaw." This declaration so control the actions ef tbe secretary of the treasury a to prevent bis exeroislnt the dioretion nom inally vested In him If by such action the parity between gold and silver may be dis turbed Manifestly, a refusal by the secretary to pay these treasury notes In gold if de manded would neoessarily result In their dis credit and depreciation, as obligations uovubie only In silver, and would destroy tns partly between tue two metals It ritaMah'w dis crimination b favor of gold.

There Is one Important aspect of th subject wliicb especially should never be overlooked At times like tbe present, when tbe V.I of unsound ftnsnce threaten ns, tbe speculator may anticipate a harvest gathered from the misfortunes of others: tb capital! t may pro tect himself by hoarding or may even Had profit In th fluctuation of values: but th wage earner, the first to be Injured by d. predated currency and tbe last to recelv th benefit of its correction, is practically defense less. He relies for work upon the ventures of confident and contented capital This fall ing btm, his condition is without alleviation, for he can neither Drev unon tha misfortunes Of ethers nor bourd his labor One ot the greatest stateimen our country has known, speaking more than fifty yrM ago when a derangement of the currency had caused commercial distress, said: "The very man of all others wbo has the deepest interest in sound currency and who suiters by mis chievous levislstion in monetary matters la the m- n who earns his dailv bread bv his daily loll." These words s-e as pertinent now as on tne aay tney were utterea and ought to impresHively remind us that a failure In the disuhare of our duty at this time must especially Injure those of our countrymen who labor and who because of their number and condition are entitled to the most watchful care or their government. 8PEEDT BELIEF DESIRED. I. is of the utmost Imortance that such re lief as congress can afford In the existing situa tic be afforded at once. The maxim, "He gives twice who gives quickly," Is directly ap plicable. It may be true that the embarrass ment from which the country Is suffering arise as much from evils apprehended as from those actually existing. We hope, too, that calm counsels will prevail and that neither the capitalists nor the wage earners will give way to unrsasonlna- nanie and aaoririoa their property or their Interests under me innuence oi exoggerataa rear Neverthe less, every day's delay in removing one ot th plain ana principal causes of the present ttute of things enlarges tha mischief already none ana increases tne responsibility or th government for Its exNtence.

The mys Asry of the robbery of the United States Express company wsfon In the heart of this city on the night of duly 20 la solved, fa.ooo oi tne booty recovered and three of those who were in the conspiracy are now in tbe county jalL Each of them has made a confession Colonel John Byrne, ex-superintendent of police at Buffalo, who ia now the special agent in charge of all the) criminal work of the company, worked the caae to a successful Issne. On the eventful night mentioned as telephone message came into the office of the company and asked the express wagon to can at tne creamery on iti way to the Bock Island depot to get some goods for ship ment. The wagon called aa directed and, while in the dark alley, a negro jumped in, held up the messenger ana driver ana roboea tne safe of 7,eoo. That negro ts tne only man in the combination tbat hae not yet been caught and be naa wltb bint bis share of the booty, which is 12.600. The negro ia. the only man that did tbe robbery. ' The others Implicated are Howard H. Greer of Eldorado, telegraph operator. Arthur Mancher. tbe messenger in charge of the express wagon, and Jack Iteclr. clerk in tns Occidental hotel. Mancher planned the robbery, the negro did the actual work, Oreer did tbe telephoning for tbe express wagon to come to the creamery and Heck was the treasurer of the combination, who held all the money until a few days ago, when the negro took bis share and skipped. Oreer was the first man to peaoh. He was arrested early last evening and the first thing he told was that Beck had the money. Beck was immediate ly arrested, and after confessing; he went into a storage room In tbe liotel, fished the money out of a tomato can and gave it up. Hancher was imme diately arrested. All three of them separately confessed. The tin-t clue obtained to tbe theft was by the strange actions of Oreer and Ilaneher. They did not recognize each other in any public place, but still the officers found they were rooming together. Incidentally it slipped from the lips of a man named lireckmeyer, who was formerly a comrade of Ilancher in a grocery house, that he had been approached to join in the conspiracy. After this he was pumped freely, and thus the crime was fixed. Nothing was left but to get the evidence, and this tbe company now has in the robber's own confession.
