the Manufacturers' Record , says that
the south has been blessed with an enor- ,

THE CURRENCY BILL.
Mr. Springer Gives Another Jxplanntlon
of Its I rovislotts
WAsutxoTox , Dec. 20.-Representa-
tive Springer said today in partial
explanation of time currency bill as
modified by the Carlisle amendments :
"In the first place the Carlisle bill
proposes a radical change in tl'e manner -
ner of securing time bond note circu-
lation. The rapid payment of time
public debt , the limited number of
bonds now outstanding and the
further fact that many of
them are held in trust Capacities -
pacities in this country and as
permanent investments by persons residing -
siding abroad , have rendered the kind
of security now required impractica-
ble. The Carlisle bill propose for security -
curity for the circulating notes of the
national banks , instead of United
States bonds a guarantee fund consisting -
sisting of legal tender notes or currency -
rency certificates to time amount of 30
per cent of the circulation applied for ;
also a safety fund to be raised by a
tat of one-half of 1 per cent per annum -
num upon the circulating notes until
it reach 5 per cent of the whole circulation -
lation , and as a furthersccurity a first
lien upon all the assets of the bank
and upon the amount which may be
realized by the double liability- feature
of the national banking law. Time
guarantee fund of thirty- per cent , time
assets of the bank and time personal
liability of the stockholders can only
go to the payment of the circulating
notes of the bank , which is the custom -
tom ; but the five per cent guarantee
fund raised by a tax upon all the circulation -
culation of the country is a common
fund out of which the notes of any
failed bank may be paid , if the guarantee -
antee fund , the assets and personal
liabilities of the stockholders are not

of 200 million dollars , the present
national bank circulation , the safety
fund would amountto $10,000,003 , and
this whole fund could be drawn upon
to pay the notes of any bank that
failed. This security is considered
ample by time safest financiers and
bankers of time country. The currency

THE NEW DIPHTHERIA CURE. .
Dr. Klnyottn's Report on His Itesenr'hen
-Danger. From Slturlous Antl-Tolne.
WASinxaroN , Dec. 31.-rho officials'
of the United States Marine hospital
service are watching with interest
the results obtained from the new
diphtheria cure. They have just made
public the report made by Dr.
J. J. Khnyoun of his visit to
the Children's hospital at Berlin
whore time larger portion of
cases suffering from diphtheria
are treated. There were about r
tlmirty-livt cases in the hospital at the
time of his visit and their ages were-
usually from three to five years. Time
death rate was slightly lower thaw
in the Paris hospitals for the reason
that time patients tvcro sent to time'
hospital sooner and the children received -
ceived better care than was accorded
them in like institutions in Paris.
Ur. 1Cinyoun elaborately describes
the nmethods and practices employed
in the hospitals iii treatment of thti
The matter of the control or simper- '
vision of the use of anti toxine was
cngagin the attention of the Berlin
authorities. 1Vliiio Dr. Kinyoun was
there , November 4 , Professor ICoch
convened a meeting of time Prussiamt
board of lmealth for ( letermnutng what
action should be taken. Professor
Koch had expressed the opinion that
there should be some government
supervision of time serum so that it
could always be relied upon. I f
there was no such supervision , it
would not be long before spurious
articles would be put on the market
and not only would u good remedy be
brought into disrepute , but lives
nmight be sacrificed when they might
be saved. It was decided at the mneet-
ing of time board that all serum intended -
tended for use in Prussia should ho
inspected and tested for its purity i
and strength before it would he al-
lotved to be used. ' [ 'his was satfsfac-
tore to all the patties concerned and
will be time means of insuring a trootl
article of standard strength at alll
times for Prussia.
In tlmis conueetion Ir. ICinyonn
calls attention to what lie says will
evidently occur in this country.
Manypet:5ons , will , during time euut-
fug year , prelr.re time serum as a Lois-
mess enterprise , and there will , with-
oat doubt. be many worthless ar tirles
called auti-toxine thrown upon the i
market. 1111 of the serum intended
for sale , lie believes , shomld be immade
or test2tl by competent persons. The
testing , in fart , should be (10110 by dis-
111tCreStCll p'ttties. 'l'ife an ti-toxine ,
he says , will never work miracles ,
havinn its Ihinits like any otl tr
agents , and like a perfect piece "f
nmchimmei-y , vill not. accomplish the
full result unless directed by a ' kill-
fnl hand. "Sonic persons alfeetetl
with this dread disease , " he declares
will. snccomnb , it matters not how soon
we apply the remedy. The mnajoritr
will , however , I air sure , recover if
time anti-toxine is given eariy and
In closing , the report express' ; time
hope that soon ewerystate and iuunie
ipality will take the proper step ; to
provide facilities for supplying thu
remedy to the neople.
