Discussing ths democratic caucus binding

"la la persuasive or coercive?" and an
swering his own inquiry ho declared It to
ba cruel, "ft may be refined," he went on,
"but it 1 cruel It strips aenators of
every element Of independence and Is liable
to force them to disgrace their high offices
or send them Into oblivion." He declared
that aucb a course brought the senate down
to the level of an ordinary political meet
ing. He had always believed that In public
office men were more Important than plut
fornis. - 11 had thought that the demo
cratic party might learn valuable lessons
from the republican party In dealing with
the membership of the party. He espe
cially commended that party for not having
"whole states bound and gagged by the
unit rule in national conventions.
"The democratic party has been out of
power for many years. Will my demo
cratic friends not concede that lta arbi

Mr. Patterson declared that tha doctrine
that even states have a right to direct the
votes of their senatora has been aban
doned. H endorsed tho change of view,
holding that the freedom of senators could
not otherwise be maintained.
Ha declared that the caucus rule did not
provide for. tha conscience of the senator,
and said a senator should be true to but
own convictions, constituting himself a
monitor of which he should stand In awe.
He appealed for relief from tha "cruelty
' and Injustice and Indefenslblo character of
the caucus action."
He said that the caucus was equivalent
fo declaring that senators were dishonest
and that senators who could ' not be se
cured through reason should be reached
through fear. He said that a aenator who
stands in fear of being weakened at the
poll because of having violated caucus
action haw had Ills moral forces weakened.

House democrats" and "insurgent repub
licans" when Independence was ahown, he
repeated that it wan the duty of every
senator, regardless of party, to vote his
solemn convictions .
Aa to the qualification that a aenator
should be 39 years of age, Mr. Patterson
quoted Judge Story, that thirty yeara was
not to : long for. due . maturity, and said
that "tried Integrity"; was one qualifica
tion.. He spoke of "taunts'' having passed
back and forth across the chamber aa to
coercive mcasurea and also spoke of aum
mons of senators, to the White House.
"I don't hesitate to say that the sena
tor or member who surrenders his own
convictions In the hope of patronage and
that tho president who promisee It are, to
say the least, to ba condemned," he said,
adding that such a course was nothing
less than bribery. Such a course waa im
moral and Indefensive and was the same
aa aecuring votes for venal considerations.
Quoting the different .sections of the pre
ample to his resolution. Mr. Patterson
commented upon them. Referring to one
of these sections, he said there Is neither
constitutional nor statutory authority for
twenty-five or thirty senators to attempt to
coerce the vote of one of their colleagues.
Such a course Is calculated to deprive a
state of lta proper representation In the
senate, he declared, and'iskml: "Who is
willing to be Impaled by the public con
tempt for submitting to such dictation?"
He declared that In the public view a
senator becomes a representative of other
statea other than his own.
He concluded substantially as follows:
"I have no regrets for tho course I have
pursued and shall continue, to pursue it.
It la true I may not be admitted to the
councils of my party In the senate, but
realizing that I am excluded because I
am striving to perform my duty as I have
sworn to execute It, I will bear tha seclu
sion in perfect equanimity by simply say
ing to my democratic friends that I expect
to meet them In the next democratic con
vention, where I hope we will help nom
Inuto a candidate for president who will be
equally aa brave as Mr. Roosevelt In fight
ing the fight of the people." '

WASHINGTON. Feb. 7. Secretary Shsw
has received through Jacob H. 8-hlft of
New York a oopy of the resolutions recently
adopted by the Chamber of Commerce of
New York City, In which exception Is taken
to some of the secretary's well known views
on the subject of curtenCy letlslatlon. In
his reply the secretary says under yester
My Dear Mr. SMrlff! I am In receipt of
your letter of February 3, accompanied by a
copy of the report of the . committee on
finance and currency of the New York
f hamlwr of Commerce. Of those who study
the question nine met out of ten agree that
something should he done to make our cur
rency system elastic, but of the nine who
unite that something should be done. It is
difficult to find two who agree on the meas
ure that shall lie adopted. In the commit
tee's report' I find this language:
"The redemption of the. national bank
notes Is limited to a total of I3.0no.noo per
nionth, thus tying up, to a large extent, the
only source of redemption we have."
The most, unfortunate feature of this
statement Is the fact that" there Is now no
limitation on the redemption of national
bank circulation. . -
Some- Illustration In Point.
The secretary points otit that the commit
tee recommended trie repeat of the law re
ferred to and aays:
In the face of the fart that the banks at
New York City alone returned to the treas
ury for redemption over 12,0n0,0or In na
tional bank notes during the single nionth
of December last," the-foregoing recommen
dation justifies my regret that the commit
tee did not give the subject that considera
tion which is its due. While there Is a law
limiting the amount of lawful monev which
the hanks may deposit for the retirement of
circulation to 3,Mju,oiiQ per month, there Is
mmiHuun on redemption or national
bank notes and no limitation on the retire.

tirement of bank circulation. I beg to sug
gest that In my opinion the repeal of the
provision would not effect the remedv.
Logically banks find It profitable to retire
their circulation, sell their bonds and swell
their reserve whenever money is worth ex
cessively high rates or interest. I regret
that the committee of the Chamber of Com
merce did not study the question In the
IlKht of the actual operations of the bunks
of New York City. The repeal of the M.OuO,
per month limitation on the amount of
lawful money that can be taken out of cir
culation for the retirement of national
bank circulation would make It possible to
retire all our national bank circulation In a
given month, If national bunks studied the
question as closely na.do a few banks In
New York City.
Deposit of Government Fnnda.
In your letter you urge that the chamber's
recommendation that the secretary of the
treasury be authorised to deposit all public
funds, except the gold reserve and a reason
able working balance, In national banks
at a reasonable rate of Interest, should be
brought to thw immediate attention of con
gress. I think favorably of the commit
tee's recommendation that these deposits
he at a reasonable rate of Interest, pro
vided they be made, without specific se
curity. You being a. banker, must recog
nise that hanks cannot afford to pay 2 per
cent Interest on government deposits except
when Interest rates, are below 8 per cent

security. It Is not likely, however, that I
any bank would surrender a government
deposit Kim ply because of a fluctuation In
current rates .of Interests. Thus you will
see that, the two 'recommendations of the
chamber. If they had any effect whatever,
would result In further expansion during
the seasons of plenty, and further contrac
tion when Interest rates are high.
I also note tbe suggestion" In the report
that additional 'Plrctilatlnn equal to 50 per
cent, oi inn DoiKi-aequrea circulation main
talned by th,a bunk of issue would be excessive-
and result tin "Inflation. Nearly all
advocates -of elanue.'.. currency urge the

Had the stringency been aa acute through
out the Cnltea Htates as it was In New
York In December- I doubt -whethor an
Increase of national bank circulation equal
to 60 per cent of the aggregate circulation
then existing would have been excessive.
If less than the limit authorised by law
did prove excessive. If less than the limit
authorized by law did prove sufficient to
restore normal rates of Interest certainly
no more would Issue If subjected to a tax
of 6 or 6 per cent. The wholu theory of
heavily taxed circulation la to prevent
excessive lssno at any time and to Insure
its retirement when normal conditions are
restored. Hut this Is simply a detail and
not essential to the method outlined in my
While tho committee In general terms

the report of the secretary of thu treasury,
which is substantially the system now and
for many years In successful operation In
Germany, It failed to point out any defect
therein except as to the volume of addi
tional circulation that might be Issued In
case of an emergency. You will quite agree
with me, I think, that greater latitude of
discussion would have ensued had the com
mittee formulated some system of its own.
While I think the German plan the best
and most practicable, I do not consider It
the only workable method. If none other
can be formulated, however, there is great
hope that sooner or later the country will
agree upon the recommendation contulned
In the report. Very truly yours.

once for the reading of the bill.
Mr. Grosvenor (O.) stated that he had
reconsidered his Intention to offer an
amendment prohibiting railroad officials
from owning industrial properties along tha
lines of their roads.
An amendment was presented by Mr. T'n

ter. Ho had stated, he said, the reasons
why amendments ought not to.be adopted.
All Amendments Voted Down.
Mr. Townsend made the statement that
the bill really Included express companies
and Pullman cars under the language
"Joint instrumentalities" of traffic.
On a vote by tellers the amendment waa
defeated. 118 to Hfl.
A number of other amendments were de
feated, among them being:
By Mr. Shackelford (Mo.), to add a "long
and short haul clause"; by Mr. Prince (111.),
require all roads after 19W to own the
cars run over their roads; by Mr. She pai d

amendments for freight classification.

Mr. Gaines pursued his anti-pass cam

WALLACE FOR COSTRACT SVSTKM
Former Knalneer Says Canal. Can Ba
Bnllt Cheaper that Wny.
WASHINGTON. Feb. 7.-John Findley
Wallace, former chief engineer of tho canal
commission, today concluded his testimony
before the senate canal commission except
In relation to the type of canal, to be taken
up after the report of the board of consult
ing engineers has been made public. He
says the red tape necessary to the eysteui
Involved In governmental work compelled
him to favor the contract plan of building
the canal In order to expedite Its comple
tion. He thought the man In charge of the
work on the Isthmus should be the undis
puted head, with the governor of the sone
second and the man who has charge of the
procuring of supplies and men third in au
thority. Headquarters of tho commission
j should be on the isthmus, Mr, Wallace said.
and the harder the communication with
Washington the less the work would bo re
tarded. He thought the engineer In charge
was not paid an excessive salary.
Mr. Morgan suggested Mr. Stevens was
receiving us much as all six of the sena
tora In the committee room and Mr. Wallace
replied: "Yes. and I presume he earns It."
He thought the chairman of the commis
sion if he was to live in the I'nited States
was receiving too much, but said he could
not speak confidently concerning that.
The hearing was adjourned until Friday
at 11 o'clock.

"The acts of hazing proved ' against the
