This is quite erroneous. The New
York stock exchange has a clearing
house of its own, based upon the
same principled as the clearing house
for banks; and brokers instead of
paying for all the stock they buy and
receiving nay for all the stock they
sell, report to this clearing house
and settle for the balances. The

it is predicated upon tho credit of
the parties to tho transaction. Its
redemption is speedy and it is un
vexed by arbitrary laws. It is not
subject to government interference,
it is absolutely responsive to the de
mand of trade and without it tho
commerce of that great city would
be impossible; and, except for sup
plying the retail demands incident
to every community, it answers every
"The proposed currency would not
be usable between banks in the city
of New York. Balances at the clear
ing house in that city can be settled
only in gold or silver or their rep
resentative and legal tender money.
The present bank notes are not avail
able for such purpose. Whenever the
present bond secured , bank notes
come into the possession of New
York banks they send them to the
United States treasury' for redemp
tion and receive in exchange legal
tender money, which counts as part
of their reserve. One hundred and
thirty-six million, two hundred and
fifty-two thousand, three hundred
and sixty dollars ($136,252,360) na
tional bank notes were so presented
for redemption by the banks of the
city of New York last year.
"I call attention to these facts and
circumstances in order to show that
New York has no greater compara
tive interest in the proposed nole is
sue than any other locality. When
the interior demand for currency is
strong, New York banks can issue
and ship such notes to their interior
correspondents, and by so doing sat
isfy the commercial demands with
out impairing their reserve money.
Such notes, if issued in small de
nominations, would undoubtedly
come into use for the purpose of the
retail trade. Under the proposed
plan banks would pay out their own
notes and present the notes of other
banks for redemption, and the fact
can not be too strongly emphasized,
that with ample facilities for redemp
tion inflation is impossible. The
notes would remain in use only to
serve a business need, and so long as
they served such need they would
be promoting the interests of all, and
when the demand slackened, thev
should and would, logically and nat
urally, seek the nearest point of. re
demption. . I believe such a currency
would materially serve the public in
terest, relieving and preventing thfi
periodical stringencies which occur
under existing laws.
"No currency system can relieve
such a money stringency as exists at
the present time for the reason that
it is more a question of mobile capi
tal than currency. This is evidenced
by the fact that practically the same
condition of money stringency exists
throughout the world."

The price of meat to all consumers

Thus without taking such endless
details as the fertilizer market, where
the trust controls the price that a
farmer pays for his fertilizer, it ap
pears that the latest fight of the gov

to the two chief essentials of-life-
bread and meat.

TEN MEN CONTROL PRICE

A Chicago dispatch to the Omaha

alleged .to have developed that
ten men in Chicago compose the
dynamic force that control prices
from those of meat on the hoof and
shoes, and from breadstuff s tb cattle

asserted to hold the balance upon the

A. Most Dangerous Disease, Which
Causes Serious Results, Unless
Catarrh of the Stomach is very
common and is known as one of tho
most obstinate diseases, which, when
neglected or Improperly treated with
cheap patent medicines, tonics, drugs,
pills, and other secret quack reme
dies results in a broken down con
stitution and often consumption and
Catarrh of the Stomach, like every
other disease of the stomach, except
cancer, is the result of poor diges
tion. The digestive organs have be
come wefik, there is a lack of gastric
juice, your food is only half digested,
and as a result you becorile affected
with loss of appetite, pressure and
fullness after eating, heartburn,
vomiting, waterbrash, tenderness at
pit of stomach, 3limy tongue, bad
taste in the mouth, constipation, pain
in limbs and face, sleeplessness,
nausea, belching of gas, diarrhoea,
sick headaches, dizziness, mental de
pression, nervous weakness, and
many other common symptoms.
If your stomach cannot digest the
food you eat, then the stomach needs
a rest, as that is the only way you
can get rid of your catarrh, but in
the meantime your body needs plenty
of nourishment, because you must
live and in order to live you must
eat, and if you mu'st eat, your food
must be properly digested, and if
your stomach is too weak to do tho
work, then you must get a substi
tute that will do the work.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are the
only known substitute that will di
gest your food as well as any healthy
stomach. They contain vegetable
and fruit essences, aseptic pepsin
(gov. test), golden seal and diastase,
the very elements necessary to digest
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are not
a secret remedy and for that very
reason thousands of physicians all
over tlie United States recommend
them to their ,'patients for catarrh ot
the stomach, dyspepsia of all kinds.
and other stomach troubles. Experi
ments and tests have proven that one
grain of the active principle con
tained in these tablets will digest
3,000 grains of food.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are in
the form of pleasant tasting tablets
or lozenges and are sold in largo
fiftyrcent boxes at alj drug store.
