Memorandum of the Chief Execu
tive'! Views.
He Wants the Currency Be
deemed in Coin.
An Excess of Revenue to be Pro
vided. The following correspondence be
tween Senator Jones, ofiNevada,
and President Grant has been
made public :
U. S. Senate Chamber,
Washington, June 4, '74.
To the l'.-csidcnt :
T w.asi so Wul' imnressed bv the
clearness and wisdom of the iinan
cial views (some of which you had
fortunately reduced to writing)
reeenllv exnressed bv vou in a con
versation in which I had the honor,
with a few others, to be a partici
pant, that I cannot dismiss them
from my mind. The great diversi
ty of ideas throughout the country
upon this subject, and the fact that
public opinion concerning the same
is still in process of formation, lead
me to believe that these views
would be productive of great good.
I venture, therefore, to request of
you that I may have a copy of the
written memorandum to which I
have alluded, with your permission
that it may be ma le public.
I have the lienor to be, very res
pectfully, your tb.nlient servant,
John P. Jones.
Executive Mansion,
"Washinton, D. C, June 4
.
Hon. J. P. Joncf, United Stales
Senate :
Dear SrR: Your note of this
date, requesting a copy of a memo
randum which I had prepared, ex
pressive of my views upon the finan
cial question, and which you, with
others had heard read, is received,
but at too late an hour to comply to
night I will, however, take great
pleasure in furnishing you a copy in
the morning, as soon as I can have
it copied.
It i3 proper that I should state
that these views had been reduced
to writing, because I had been con
sulted on this question, not only by
some members of the conference
committee, but by many other mem
bers of Congress. To avoid any and
all possibility of misunderstanding,
I deemed this course both justifia
b'e and proper.
With this explanation I inclose
you herewith the memorandum re
ferred to.
Very respectfully,
y. a. grant,
memoranduji ov views
entertained on the subject of desira
ble legislation on finance.
1 believe it a high and plain duty
to return to a. specie basis at the ear
liest practicable day, n.ot only in
compliance with legislative and par
ty pledges, but as a step indispensa
ble to national lasting prosperity. I
believe further that the time has
come when this can be done, or at
least begun with Ies3 embarrass
ment to every branch of Industry
than at any future time, after resort
has been to unstable and temporary
expedients to stimulate unreal pros
perity and speculation on bases oth
er than coin, the recognized medi
um of exchange throughout the
commercial world. The particular
mode selected to" bring about a res
toration of the specie standard Is not
of so much consequence as that
some adequate plan be devised, the
time fixed when currency shall be
changed for coin at par, and the
pjan acjopted rigidly adhered to.
It is not probabjo tliat any legis
lation suggested by n"je; would proye
acceptable to both branches of Con
gress, and indeed full discussion
might shake my own faith lu the
details of any plan I might propose,
I will, however, ventiire to state the
general features of the action which
seems to me advisable on the finan
cial pjatform on which I would
stand, any departure from which
would be in a spirit of concession
and harmony in deference to cou
fljflting opinions.
First. I would like to see the
"legal-tender ulause;" so called, re
pealed, the repeal to take effect at a
future time, say July 1, 1875. This
would cause all contracts made after
that datp for wages, sale, etc., to be
estimated in coin, Jt would oorrect
our notion of values, TJjp specie
dollar be the only dollar known as
the measure of equivalents. When
debts afterward contracted were
paid in currency, instead of calling
the paper dollar a dollar, and quo
ting gold at so much premium, we
should think and speak of paper as
at so much discount. This alone
would aid greatly in bringing the
two currencies nearer together at
par.
' Second. I would like to see a pro
vision that at a fixed' day, say July
1, 1876, the currency issued by the
United States
SHOULD BE REDEEMED
in coin on presentation to any as
sistant treasurer, and that all cur
rency so redeemed should be can
celled and never be reissued. To
effect this it M'ould be necessary to
authorize the issue of bonds payable
in gold, bearing such interest as
would command par in gold, to be
put out by the treasury only In
such sums as should from time to
time be needed for the purposo of
redemption. Such legislation would
insure a return to sound financial
principles in two years, and would,
in my judgment work less hard
ship to the debtor Interest thau is
likely to come from putting off the
day of final reckoning. It must be
borne in mind too, that the creditor
interest had Its day of disadvantage
also, when our present financial
system was brought in by the
supreme needs of the nation at the
time.
I would further provide that,
from and after the date fixed for re
demption, no bill, whether of na
tional banks, or of the United
States, returned to the treasury to be
exchanged for new bills, should be
replaced by bills of less denomina
tion than ten dollars, and that, in
one year after resumption, all bills
ot less than five dollars
SHOULD BE WITHDRAWN
from circulation, and In two years
all bids of less than ten dollars
should be withdrawn. The advan
tage of this would be strength given
to the country against times of de
pression, resulting from war, failure
of crops, or any other cause, by
keeping always in the hands of the
pcapje a large supply of the precious
metals. With all smaller transac
tions conducted In coin' "many mil
lions of it would b kept In constant
nse, and, of course, prevented, from
leaving the country. Undoubtedly
a poorer currency wU always drive
the better out of circulation. With
paper as legal tender, and at a dis
count, gold and silver become arti
cles of merchandise as much as
wheat or cotton. The surplus will
find the best market it can.
With small bills In circulation
there is no tse for coin except to
keep it'in the vaults of banks to re
deem circulation. During periods
of great speculation and apparent
prosperity there is little demand for
coin, and then it will flow on to a
market where it can be made to
earn something, which it cannot
do while lying idle.
Gold, like anything else, when
not needed, becomes a surplus, and
like every other surplus, it seeks a
market where it can find one. By
giving active employment to coin,
however, its presence can, it seems
to me, be secured, and the panics
and depression whichhave occurred
periodically in times of nominal
specie paynfents, if they can not be
wholly prevented, can at least be
greatly mitigated. Indeed, I ques
tion whether it would have been
found necessary to depart from the
standard of specie in the trying day
which gave birth to the first legal-
tender act, had the country taken
the ground of "no small bills" as
early as 1850.
Again, I would provide an excess
of revenue over current expendi
tures; I would do this by rigid
economy, and taxation where taxa
tion can best be borne. Increased
revenue would work a constant re
duction of debt and interest, and
would provide coin to meet demands
on the Treasury for the resumption
of its notes, thereby diminishing the
amount of bonds needed for that
purpose. All taxes, after resump
tion begins, should be paid in coin
or United States notes. This would
force redemption on the national
banks.
With measures like these, or meas
ures which would work out such re
sults, I see no danger in authorizing
tree banking without limit.
Owing to a surper-abundance of
electric fluid in the atmosphere the

Now that Governor (?) Pattee
has been sworn in as a member of
Doctor Johnson's Protectors of In
dustry, the Bee may congratulate
the country upon the dawn of an
era of genuine political reform.
With the Doctor at the head and
the Governor at tjjp tall end of the
organization, there will soon be an
end to all corruption and bummer
ism in our public affairs.
The Nebraska Editorial Associa
tion seems to be dilatory about hold
ing its second meeting. The action
of brother Miller and Frost at the
meeting of last year, seemed
to put a damper on the organ
ization, and nearly all its members
have secretly resolved never to be
bored again by allowing two egotists
to monopolize another meeting of
the kind, in discussing per
sonal grievances. We do not
fear a repetition of the disgraceful
transaction, and therefore recom
mend' that another meeting be held,
and that the organization be kept
up. President Gere, a "call" is in
order. West Iint Jlepubllcan.

Mr. Logan, by request, introduced
a bill to incorporate a commercial
railway with four or more tracks be
tween New York and Chicago and
St. Louis, with a capital of 200,
000,000; tariff to be fixed by a com
mission, but not to exceed ten cents
per bushel for grain, and thirty-six
cents per barrel for Hour fiom Chi
cago to A ew York.
Mr. Conover submitted an amend
ment to the House supplemental
tariff bill, with a proposition to im
pose a stamp tax of one-twentieth
per cent on all sale3 of bullion, coin
and stocks ; and one-tenth per cent
on all option sales of cotton ; re
ferred. The reports of the finance com
mute on the army appropriation bill
was received and agreod to.
The Senate resumed the consid
eration of the bill to amend cus
toms, law appeal, and moities.
Mr. Chaudler moved to strike
out the amendment of the commit
tee, confiiuing the forfeiture of frau
dulent invoices, and to the particu
lar item to which fraud relates. He
declared the provision was of inter

Washington, June 9.
Mr. Donnan, from the committee
on printing, made a report, with
the testimony in regard to the cost
of print'ng debates. Ordered prin
ted, with the views of theminoritv.
Mr. WaddeH said the majority of
the committee believed the report
ing of the debates cost $8,200 less
for each House, than last year.
Thatthereport of re-printing debates
at the government printing offices
cost at least $125,000 less than was
pa'd Reeves & Baily for the same
work last Congress; that thepres
ent form of record is greatly prefera
ble to newspaper form, that it would
be the reverse of economy to make
thepoposed contract to Reeves &
Bailey.
The Houso then proceeded to
vote on the Louisiana contos.ed
election case and after rejecting all
other resolutions, adopted without
division those reported by the ma
jority of the committee declaring
the testimonj' insufficient to show
the election of either Pinchback o-
Sliemlan, and permitting iheni to
take further testimonj.
Mr. Butler, of Massachusetts,
from the judiciary committee :e
jiorted a substitute for the Geneva
award bill.
Mr. Fry offe-ed an amemlme'it

mutual insurance companies shall
be indemnified for looses paid, such
indemnity to be divided among
3 ich members.
J Sener reported a bill to abolish
the Western District of ArUansas
aud to annex Its territory to the
Eastern District. Passed.
Mr. Sener asked leave to offer a
resolution directing the Attorney
General to institute full and thor
ough justlco of investigation into
the character of the allowances paid
at the Treasury Department and of
the claims still due for expenditures
at the marshall's office of the Wes
tern District of Arkau?as from the
1st of July. S70, and report t!e re
sult to the Ijoufee bii'thp'first day of
May next.
Mr, Haines objected, unless ho be
permitted to offer an amondmont to
tne effect that the department be
permitted to be the ultimate judge
in the matter.
Mr. 83"er qbjoctcij to Uio nniond
ment, and the "resolution was not
received,
Mr. Speer, a member of the com
mittee of contingent pxppnses in
the department of justice, addressed
the House on the enormous ex
penditures in the western district of
Arkansas. Ho showed up the
record of the Judge of the district
and of Marshal Brltton and his suc
cessor, Mr. .Logan H. Roots and
showed tljein to have robbed both
the Government ot thp United
States and the people of Arkunsas.
He showed enormous expenses of
of the district, which in 1872, were
for population less than three thou
sand, were over three hundred and
twenty-four thousand dollars more
than those of aI New England
States for the same year. At the
close of Spepr's speech objection to
Sener's resolution was withdrawn
and the resolution adopted.
Tho House then took up the Ge
neva award bill, and Mr. Poland of
fered a substitute therefor.
Mr. Butler (Mass.) spoke In ad
vocacy of his bill, and in opposition
to any proposition to re-imburse

Mr. Trcmaine spoke in opposition
to Butler's bill, and asserted that it
never could have been reported at

nies had not been provided for In It;

of the bill was to admit of an

The Citizens of San Juan Peti
tion the Secretary of War
Agaidst the Removal of
tho U. S. Troops
from that Is
land. Washington, June 9.
The citizens of the Island of San
Juan have petitioned the Secretary
of War against the removal of the
United States troops from that
island. They fear raids from the
Hydah Indians, who have expressed
a determination to regain control of
the fishing grounds in San Juan
Archipelago. General Davis in for
warding the petition disapproved it,
and says there is no danger what
ever from Indians.
The war party of Indians re
ported a few (jays sjnoe to have left
the Cheyenne ascnev reservation.
has not made its appearanoe in the
vicinity of General Custar's head
quarters at Fort Abraham Lincoln,
nor at Fort Berthold, headquarters
of Bees.
General Custar is rapidly com
pleting the organization of his
forces for the visit to the Black Hill
country, which will occupy most of
the summer.
The contemplated excursion of
hostile Indians into Texas, re
ported several days since, has at
last been lieard' from. 'A large
party of them several days since
struck the camp of one of the com
panies of the 9th cavalry and ran
oft' twenty horses without doing
further damage.
Washington, June 9.
Tho President has signed the bill
to extend the time for making ex
penditures on mining claims, until
next January.
Tho senate judiciary committee
has agreed to report against the
amendments to the supplemental
mining bill.
The senate committee on mining,
has reported adversely to incorpo
rate the Columbia Mining and Met
allogionj ponipany. Phe sahio com
mittee reported, wjth amendments,
the bill granting certain rights to
aid In the construction of a tunnel
under White Pino mountain. It
grants 2,000 feet on the east side,
and all lodes discovered, and not
heretofore claimed; two sections of
land at the mouth of the tunnel,
and requires, the exppn'dlture of
$250,000 dollars, within two years
from the passage of tjieact, and the
same sum pupji yga'r thereafter,
until at least tour miles shall be
completed.
It is unecrstood that Sargent op
posed the bill In the committee, on
the ground that amplo facilities are
granted by the mineral mining laws,
and that this bill is only an egg to
be hatched into another scheme.
It Js generally reported that the
House committee on Pacific rail
roads, has becoriio thoroughly dis
gusted with the demands for an In
vestigation of the Central Pacific
contract, and that a proposition is
being dlsqused 1(3 soino members
of thecommlhec to rebuke Luttrell
for having presented charges with
out having thp slightest foundation
to sustain them, thereby wasting
the time of the committee, and ad
ding expense" to the government,
and spreading scandal throughout
tho country.
Something will soon be done for
the relief of settlers on the Round
Valley Reservation.
The Republican caucus last night
was solely for tho purpose of elect
ing a Congressional campaign com
mittee. Senator Hamlin presided,
and Parsons, of Ohio, and Lynch,
of Mississippi, were appointed sec
retaries. Mr. Starkweather, of Connecti
cut, made the usual motion author
izing the Republican delegations
from several ettes (q dpsjgnate
each a metiibprofthe committee.
The caucus then adjourned,
The advocates ot civil rights met
with another defeat yesterday. Mr.
Butler make his uual weekly mo
tion to take up the -Senate bill and
refer it the judiciary committee. A
two-thlnls yote was required, which
could not be obtained, there being
139 yeas and 80 nays. Last week
only eight republicans voted against
the bill, and yesterday the number
voting against it was increased to
twelve, and tl'iree or four of those
votinir on the former occasion were
not present to-day. The belief is
expressed that at each attempt to
get up the bill the number of repub
lican votes in the negative will be
increased. There are several causes
for this.
Many Republicans arc sjck and
tired oT this continual agitation of
the subject; others are influenced by
the views of prominent Republican
papers, who are taking a decided
stand against the bill ; but the most
potent reason for opposition lies in
the fact tljat there is no doubt but
what the Presidpnt would veto the
bill in its present fornj. The true
friends of the President have no dis
posposition to force this issue upon
him, but on thp other hand there
are those who would like to put the
burden on him. It Is very clear,
however, that no two-thirds vote
can be had, and, therefore, the only
chance for the friends of the bill is
to have the morning hour; after
which they may go to the business on
the Speaker's table, when a majori
ty vote would take up the Senate
bUl.
New York, June 9.
A special meeting was held by the
Chamber of Commerce yesterday to
consider the moiety bill now before
the United States Senate. A. A.
Low presided. S. B. Eaton review
ed the character and progiess the
bill, and expressed some fear that it
would be delayed and not acted up
on the present session. Jackson S.
Schultz spoke more hopeful of its
passage, but if it did fail he
thought the merchants' condition
would t5e worse than ever. He
urged the merchants to go to Wash
ington and use all possible influence
to help the bill. Resolutions were
adopt?d deciding that a special com-
mittlM nn rovmitiA rpfnrm nf tlio
chamber be requested to urge the
imperative necessity for the passage
of the bill. The committee left for
Washington this morning.
The New Y'ork, Oswego and Mid
laud Railroad Company was adjudi
cated bankrupts this morning.

The match race between Gold
smith Maid ami Judge Fullerton at
jrrospeci I'arn fair grounds yester
day was witnessed by fully four
thousand people, the day being par
ticularly line, though very warm.
Betting favored the Maid at 100 to
26 before the start After the first
heat Fullerton sold at 45 and 50 to
100 on the Maid, but his stock went
down afterward to 23, and the last
neat to 15. On the first heat Fuller
ton had the pole and took the lead,
the Maid breaking up several times.
She crowded Fullerton on the home
stretch, although he came in a
length ahead. Time, 2:19. In the
second heat the start was a neck in
favor of the Maid, which she in
increased to two lengths around the
turn, and to the quarter pole on the
back stretch she went up, and Ful
lerton caught her, trotting head and
head with her to the three-quarter
pole; then the Maid put on speed
and led him over tho spnm Uvn
length. Time, 2:18.
In the third head Fullerton broke
badly, and was not stopped until af
ter making the turn, when the Maid
was near the quarter pole; the re
mainder of tho heat was a jog for
the Maid to avoid distancing Ful
lerton; time, 2:28.
In the fourth heat the trotters
came up to the score seven times be
fore they got an even send-on"; the
Maid having a slight advantage of
tho rest, which she increased: on
the turn or back stretch Fullerton
closed up, but could not pass, the
Maid keeping threp quarters of a
length ahead to tho home score:
unit., -;ij.
It was not stated on tho track
