On Currency nnd Free Bunking, in
tlio House of Iteptfseuttitlvcs, April 8,
Mr. Speaker, I do not know I should
have nlti-mpteil to speak' on the Impor
tant question before the llolise If It bad
not been lor the renin rk-t made this af
ternoon by my. illsliuguMied colluaciie
from Peniieyfvnnla..Mr. Townsend. t
uinlerst nut him to siiy the people of the
section of the country lie represented
nre In favor ofcoiitro:tion; that they do
not desire ni.y more currency, hut are
in favor of some process by wlileli specie
payments shall speedily he resumed. I
eoiiio from it section of Pennsjlvmiia
where the people are largely .engaged In
the mining of uoul ami Ui the inamiinc
lure of Iron. I was liounf but it few
days ago, nnd while there did not find
a single opi-rator In eiiaUmini ig or a
single manager Of furnaces, rolling
mills, factories, or maehliie-sl ops' who
did not say to me, "Give us more cur.-
reney, because during the lust live yens
with Hie currency ihucouutiy hail wu
were prosperous; we were developing
our mines mid building' up our furnaces
mid rolling-mills uud extending rail-.
ro,uls.'' The laborers say. the same
thing ; that before the war, when
lliey were paid at the end of the mouth,
they iiad eight dollars, but now they
have twelitj -two dollars above cuil'ent
expenses, and that' lliey rim buy uioru
goods and do mure fur their (amities
with in currency than with eight dollars
of specie before the war. That is what
the luuoring men say In the section ot
the country lioiu which Iconic.
Anil tnls ii alter of coal, .Mr. Speaker,
is mil an uiiitnpoitaiit item Pi Pennsyl
vania. Ju the three counties ml oln
lug tliu one where Hive there, are mined
tnenty-twu million tons of nuthr.icito
coal every year, which when put. Into
New York and Philadelphia, and to the
furnaces, rolling-mills, &e., iswurlli live
dollars it ton uud upwind, tilts icipilr
lug over $100,000,1100 annually to move
this coal to market.
lint It was nut o:i that particular point
I wished to speak. Specie pat incut of
eoutse is desinable. Everybody look's
forward to tliu il.iy when spetlu will
pa) incut will ho resinned. But enu we
resume specie payments by legislative
enaetuieuts? Can )ou pass .nwJ by
which yuit can put gold mid silver Into
the pockets of the people, except us
you pass pruticlive luvvs lu employ the
labor uf the country lu order to develop
the mines of the country aud build up
furnaces and other establishments Hint
will put the raw uiHteiial or theeaith
Into marketable form?
There me ul this time, in lily Judg
ment, three insuperable objections lu
specie payments The first is tint we
have not gold enough lu the country to
day; the next is that wu are liupoitlug
more Hum we are expoiting; and, In
tile tlilid place, because we are paying
$15,000,000 ill gold to Europe upon our
bonded itidt-bteiluess, 1 mean upiiti the
bonded indebtedness of tlu United
States ns well as of our varlohs corpor
ations England and (i'ernmny hoid the best
of our bonded beuurities, Unit Is, those
bonds which pay the highest rate of in
teiest. When you get your bonds home,
we will Ihen De qu tliu way to' specie
payments. When you can get the bal
ance of trade In lavor of the United
States, specie payments will soon fol
low, and wilbuut any legislation at nil.
Hut we aro told, by gentlemen that
England is paying specie; that France
also is paying specie, ullhough Fr.iuee
has Just emerged from a great and ex
haustive war. 'I'hey say that Eimland.
Germany and France are'paylug speiio,
uud why cannot we do the Mime tiling
in tun eutiiiir)? in the lirst place, 1
answer that, while the debt of England
is us great ns mat ui tuts country, It Is
held by the English peoplu. Tins peo

Now, duels anybody pretend to say
th.it a country new nnd vigorous, such
as tills Is, mid ilurlng ln be developed,
does not need more money than Eng
land or Germany or France? We have
a greater area of territory. We have
seventy-six thousand miles of railroad,
wliilu EtiKlaml has but fourteen thous
and miles. As I hnvo said, we are
largely indebted for our railroids nnd
public Improvements to Europe, while
England has paid for the wlsole of hers.
Now, Is It possible that a new country,
which must be built up In every direc
tion, does not need more money than
an old country, whoso houses nml rall

Jf you have not gold enough to do thu

Intend to do tlie business of thecounliy

the promises of a government; because
a government note Is n mnrtgiiito upon
every farm and upon every woikshop
in the country, and the people believe
that, the government will at Inst pay
these promises? Uecause of the waste
and piostratloti which a great uud won

ttlue being was an I Iscilppled. The Go

tu tliu people that its great re-ou i ces may

in oilier pm thins of the country enter
tain upon litis question.
lint gentlemen say that if you In
crease the currency you Inll.tto It. Not
neeessarly, because for'v-two million
people need more innqey than thirty-live
millions or tliirlv-two millions. By
some statistics which f have here, nnd
which I uudeistaiul have been very
carefully c illatud. it appears that the
eurieipjy of ti e United States lu 18'I5
was iivr two billions; made up of Uni

Mr. Maynanl. If the gentleman will
nllow me lu Interrupt him, I would re
mind him that lu thosu parts of the
coujtry wli-re there aio no banlts-and
there are whole reglnus of country
where there are no batiks for a hundred
miles .Ul lite money people have they
hold in their pockets, mid a number of
muouiits ot'tifiy uud a liut.dred dollars
come to a great deal in the aggregate.
Mr. .llbrlght. I have no doubt 'of
tjiat. i.ho same is true of the mining
districts of Pctjnsylviiiili. The cotinty
coinmissldncrs of the county in which I
live desired to borrovv money. Though
they had hanks there they could not
bur'uw Irom the banks, uud lliey wept
to (he-miners, and in a lew days lliey
raised Irom tvventy to thirty thousand
dollars wh'ch the miners were willing
to loan the county on the cjunty bond.
And what is true of one county Is no
duttbt true of others.
I have not time to discuss this ques
tion ns 1 would like, but the opportun
ity o speak ut .length does not present
Itself, un I, therefore 1 ildslred lo (.ay
whut.I have said so that I inUlit be un
derst ud upon this qut s.lun when I shall
I offered an amend men t to-day to the
fifth section of tliUdllll, In which I i.ro-
pose that the reserve of batiks may bu
Itivo-te l in a 3 03 per cent, currency
bond which the banks may huld nnd
convert ut pleasure. Of course they
would hold that bund, Gentlemen say
tu me, "Why, the Government does uot
want to give the bond when It lias no
netd fur money," 1 hat would be true
If the Government were uot a debtor.
But the Government would take that
money and buy the gold- bearing bouds,
and I mid ur Moat a hundred millions, of
currency bonds which the banks absorb;
so that tile GOAemmeiit would be actual
ly saving and uuklug money by that
proevsj, Lud would ma great degree'
prevent the cnnlrnctlon which happens
nt cerlnln sensons.
And then I propose, in tlilsnmendment
another tfitntj; and that Is that the hunks
shall not pay Interest to banks upon de
posits. That wns one of the great rea
sons why there was n pit'de last year.
Money was hoarded In the cities. It
vas to the Interest of tlio banks In tlio
country to get ns large n deposit In the
cities us pos-lblu, because tliny wero
g.-ttliig interest ut the rate of 4 percent.
The banks In thu cities desire to mike
still more, nnd lend that innnoy nt rales
of perhaps 8, 10 & 12 per cent., so thtt
the money became scarce hi tlio country
nnd plentiful fur speculative purposes
In Hie cities.
The amendment which I proposo wlll
prevent that. There will not be such
a desire on the part of the bank-l to send
tlielriiioiiey to the cltles.becausethey get
get no interest on it; but it will enaole
thorn to get very nearly that amount of
interest Iro n the Government, mid It
will enable the G iveruiiieiit In tlnt'Way
to get all.) it a currency bund and redeem
nu equal nmount of gold-beai lug bonds.
