The Nntlnnnl Hunk Problem.
Si'TTO.v , Nub. , Dec. 20. [ Correspondence
of the HBK.I The question of legislation in
the Interest of the rnitloniil banking system
lint this time attracting unreal deal of at
tention tit there have been u number of Jibuti
BUtrgfBtcd from nil over the country to try Vo
jmrfoct the system no an to etain nil Its usefulness -
fulness mii | security to tho'p9oplo both as to
circulation issued mid to depositors. Tlie
nu.ubcr of banks thathuvo been fprccd to go
infjniqiilflatton mid the uinount of ctrculntlon
tlint has been withdrawn within the last
few years , show plainly that some legislation
Kiringrcllof In this respect , Is badly needed
and bclnif earnestly urged throughout the
whole country. This Is a mutter which will
not permit of any experiments but must be-so
bundled as to reserve the present system
with all Its sound and perfect security
Mr. John Thompson , vice president of the
Chano National lunk , of Now York , suggests
that national banks bu allowed to Issue 'Op-r
cent of thelr-pald up capital without deposit
ing any nocurity.
Mr. V , ' . W. Flanlgan , of the Commercial
bank , of New York , proposes the deposit of
bullion an the. security for circulation.
Senator Farwoll , cf Illinois , propoios to ac
cept , railroad , state and municipal bonds as
.security for national bank circulation , bonds
so deposited to bo approved by the comp
troller ut the L'tirruntiy.
While the plans might prove | > erfeotly safe ,
wo question whether there uouM , not bo more
or less anxiety by the people us to whether
oureirculatlngmednim was properly. secured.
Wo have iH'cn permitted to .see a letter prepared -
pared l . \ Mr L 1) . Fowlwr. cashier of the
First National bunk ot button , to the comp
troller of the ciitTenu.v , suggesting a plan
which , Itoexmisto us , come * very nearly
covering the grolind and at the Bunlo time
preserver all the hecitrity , and offers Un
necessary lolief demanded by the National
Bankers' asMiciation. yet makes no radical
change in Iho general system and security of
the law regulating the nntloiial banks. As it
is the pruvuiliiiK miprn-isioii that national
bunks are entitled to some legislation remov
ing aomo of thu burdens imposed on the sys
tem when the plan seems that
the more simple the plan to brink' about these
results , the better.
\Ve submit herewith a copy of Mr. Fowler's
letter , which is certainly very clear and com
prehensive , und will no doubt meet with the
approval of the bankers throughout the coun
try :
St'irox , Neb. , December W , 1957. Hon.
AV. I , . Trenholm , Comptroller of the Cur-
leney Washington , V , C. Dear Sir The
question of amending' the national banking
law by removing some of the burdens , which
were deemed advisable at the lime the sys
tem was adopted , is meeting with universal
approval provided this can be reached with
out impairing the secuiilt\ , umllilLiiec in
the national banking system , which is ad
mitted by all to reliable in tlio
most reliable in the world. Now it is plum
that eongiuss is ready and willing lo granl
relief , if it can bo clearly f.lmwn that it can
bo done and yet preserve all the security the
present law provides , and any bill which pie
seuls n no\V scheme for security or suggests
any radical change in the system stands a
chance of bomg snowed under ; from the
fact that there Is nothing which the people
will guard more closely than tjio law con
trolling the circulating medium ami the in
stitutions to which they entrust the earnings
and accumulations of a lifetime. Now , in
view of these factsIt occurto me , that
only i such amendments should bo suggested
as are practicable and absolutely necessary
to obtain the desired results , vito ; make it
desirable for national banlts to Issue circula
tion equal to the amount nf their capital and
remove some of the objectionable features
which the present demands.
1. Authorise the issue of $ .VX,0lOOOor&uch ) ( ) (
amoiint as to meet the demand of 2 percent
'llfty-yoar bo-ids , to bo used only to secure
the circuhition of national banks.
2. Authorise the secretary of the treasury
to redeem bonds now deposited by national
banks to secure circulation at market value
in navmcnl of new bonds.
! l. .Authorize the circulation ciunl | to par
value of bonds deposited.
1. Exempt the capkal stock of banks in
vested In bonds to secure the circulation
from local taxation.
ft. Uemove the present duty of 1 per cent
on circulation.
ll. Make the redemption fund 2 per cent in
stead of 5 percent.

to justify an Indictment. The most damag
ing evidence baa come from ex-Doputy War-
dun Hiekox , It seeing that Martin was in the
habit of dellverihg prison supplies to the vari
ous employes' under him , nnd kept n record
thereof In a llttlo bdok. At the end of each
month the nthnunt received was footed up
and deducted from tlio'nmnth's pay. The
full wages of nil employes were drawn from
the state , and Martin seems to have pocketed
an amount equalto the supplies furnished to
each emiiloye , us no re-cord can be found
where the same has boon turned back Into
the stato.tceasury. This practice obtained
for years , and Is only one of many methods
forihu swindling of the state. The giand
jury were seriously charged , .by Judge 1'rcs-
tou to fully investigate , but they seemed
hampered by a desire to spare their county
as much expense us possible , nnd by the be
lief that it should be n litigation , and not a
county Investigation. It Is extremely prob
able , however , that an Indictment will result.

A nice soft thick and smoothe chinchilla , warm in color , beautifully made and
trimmed , only $15..v ; '

In regard to Sullivan's challenge Kilrain
said : 1 think it all a bluff. I ignore the chal
lenge , also the challonporas it is well known
tbrouphout the world that ho has refused to

months and by refusing to meet

ho might have had to championship honors.

lliht him as Boon as he lilies. J'ut there , let
the matter drop. He will not beat Charley ,
and , as a natural consequence , my desire to
meet him will not be pratillcd. Smith is un
doubtedly a good , panic man , and having met
him in battle 1 will bo pleased to meet him
in friendship. As to my treatment received
nt the hands , of thuKnplish public , ! can't find

All over the country my leccption has been

words have been said and the bent wishes ex
