whick -were substituted for compound
interest notes, and were a temporary
expedient to avoid an increase of the
the bonded debt. 'They were the least
objectionable. Being payable on de.
mend, they 'might be preaented to the
Tresusnry when most inconvenient.
They draw interest and are mainly held
in eastern banks, where circulation is In
excess. By their payment the United
States eaves three per cent. interest,
and will net three per cent. taxes I n new

the currency without either expansion
or contraction.

true system of banking, embracing ab
solute security to the noteholders and
the United States. The agency of private
corporations, as hanks, to give flexibility
to currency and to meet the ebb and flow
of exchange, its redemption on demand

or restrictionsiexcept such as are noes.
nary to protect its debtors and cred
itors. The banks to be authorized
will be organized only on the Pacific
coast, or in New York and the t3outh,
where large transactions are based upon
gold values.
Mr. Sherman further announced that
the possible objections to the bill would
befoUowed.let. dire, time by a bill for
funding the public debt and for the re.
vision of the internal revenue tax and
Mr. DAVIS remarked that the chief
feature or gold notes was dependent
upon the facility with which they were
redeemed. To make them equal in val
ve to gold their certain and prompt re
demption must be secured when pre
sented by holders to the bank. In case
of Oho Bank falling to make them equal
to coin, the Government moat be
ready and able to step In and redeem
the notes.
Mr. SHERMAN replied by reference
to the 4th section of the bill, requiring
every national bank to keep ow:hamlet
least 2.5 percept. of its circulation in gold
or silver coin. Then, too, the taw under
the present system was thit If the Dote
was presented to the bank and not paid,
the holder might at once present It to the
Government., which would redeem it
within twenty days. The banks were
bound to redeem-their notes at the cen
ire of redempt [emend the same general
'principle that' applied to circulating
notes applied also to gold notes. •
Mr. HOWE delivered a lengthy &Mu.
ment in review of the financial proposi
tions which had been suggested. He
advocated the proposition to allow legal
tenders to be funded in six per cent.
bonds, redeemable at the pleasure of the
Government, conferring the privilege of
funding to those who will use the bonds
as a bads for new bank circulation, and
giving preference to those portions of
the country which may from time to
time be deficient in circulation. Ho
eimpisined. . • , the Government
eimpellet -Public creditors to carry
Its own overdue obligations and
made them no compensation for so doing,
and the pending bill did not attempt to
right the wrong. He complained that
the amount in circulation was limited
by inflexible law, and this wrong the
pending bill would perpetuate. The
franchise of banking was a monopoly,
arbitrary, tultatly distrituted among
I a few to the exclusion of many. -But
the pending bill created a new monopo
ly. It also proposed to silence the corn.
Wets that the south and west were de
nied equal rights under the law, by ding
ing to them the pittance of 145.000,000 to
growl over among themselves. Above
all legitimate trade was Imperilled sod
hones effort demoralized by man who
are dally making contra to for future
delivery of gold. While this bill would
charter great corporations to engage in
that very business, he would have a law
which declared the gold gambler a crim
loll and consigned him to the peniten
bary.for life. But this bill proposed to

Mr. BROOKS addressed the House on
the subject, contending that the military
authorities had no power whatever to
Interfere with the organiztion of the
Legislature of Georgia. It was an entire
assumption on the part of General Terry
and hie subordinates, and was utterly
lawless. Governor Bullock had intro
duced a railroad master, who had not
been elected to any legislature, to pre.
side over the Legislature. He
hoped he was not misinformed In being
told that Gen. Sherman and Gen. Grant
were stoat sending a special meake n ger
to correct these illegal proceedings.
Mr. BUTLER, of Massachusetts, de
fended the Executive and Gen. Terry.
He said Gen. Terry had only done what
Gen. Meade done on the first organiza
tion of the Georgia 'Legislature-under
taken to find what members were eligi
ble. That wag authorised by all the
reoonedruotion acts.
Mr. BROOKS asked Mr. Butler to
point to the acts giving. such authority.
Mr. BUTLER said be was ready to
give all that information on the principle
of the carpenter testifying in court,
who was asked how far he was
from the place where the incident
()marred, and answered four feat two
and • half inches from it, and being
tusked, how be knew -that ao 40.
eurately, refdled that he thought some
fellow would be fool enough 'to
ask him that question and be measured
It. [ Laughter.] He referred to Sec. 11
of the Act of July 19,1887, Oil:weather.
Up to the General of the Army to act In'
this reconstruction batter. He knew
there had come up a report from the As.
iodated Press of the Booth—which Paver
reported in favor of loyalty, but
always In favor of - secesaltm and
rebellion, and• he hoped to see that
monopoly . put . down —that General
Terry had organized a Military maim's
don -to try a member of the Georgia
Legislature, but that was not so. He.
be had only appointed a board of goy.
erntuent officers to find out who were
hot eligible. itte spoke whereof he
knew wnen be armed that the action
of Gen. Terry had been and would be
sustained by the administration, and
thattleorgla would be constructed in the
interest of loyalty.
Mr. MOrtGAN protested against these
accumulative acts of usurpation, not
only on the part of Congress, but on the
part of the Executive. .
After • thriller discussion between
Messrs. Butler, Morgan, 'Voorhees, and
others, the papers were referred to the
Committee on Reconstruction.
Mr. IFARNSWORTII moved to pa

Speaker's table, In order to take up the
Virginia bill, with the *nate amend
Mr. ELDRIDGE Inquirid whether any
Opportunity for debate was to be given?
Mr. FARNSWORTH declined to make

crats voting in the negative.
The bill wag then taken up and the
Senate substitute was read.
Mr. FARNSWORTH moved to concur

bunglingly drawn, and they would do

logised the constitution of Virginia as
being more liberal that the constitution
of any State west of the Alleghenies. If
he thought that under this bill Virginia
could be subjected to conditions which
might not be imposed • on New York er
Ohio, he never would vole for the bill.
Mr. COX suggested the Senate bill was
se obnoxious as the bill reported by the
Reconstruction Committee, and which
was voted down by the Howe.
Mr. BINGHAM replied it was not
quite so obnoxious. He hoped the
House would concur In the Senate
amendment. His chief purpose was to
state to the gentlemen on his own side ,
of the House—
Mr. BUTLER. Mass...-Which side Of

know my Inmost thought', I am embold

means to write to you, hoping you will
excuse the liberty I take in so doing.
Dear —, It 11 now several years since I
first saw your sweet face-flit before my
enraptured gaze. causing this perverse
heart of mine to vibrate with the keenest
and exquisite emotions that have ever
agitated the breast of mortal since the .
days of Adam. I lovedyou, and through
years of trials and vicissitudes has this
fond heart kept tune to that sweet melody
that was first awakened In me on that
auspicious time, hoping against hope that
I might once more behold you, and that
the fates would relent and let me look
Into the depths of those sweet eyes again;
but years flew by and still I saw you not,
until at last I gave you up as one who
had gone to that bourne from whence no
traveler returns. Can you imagine what
must have been the electrical effect upon
me *hen I once more beheld you ? Oh,
God, what fervent thanks I gave Thee
that my prayer had been heard at last.
Now can you read the secret of my actions
since your resurrection? And as I hear
your dulcet voice once more making mu
sic on mine ear comes the old longing to
this foga heart of mine, and although the
circumstances which surround us look
daticand lowering still, I will make an
appeal to you, an appeal which your
actions toward me cause a' lingering ray
of hope to illuminate my path, that this
will nut be In vain., I have long wanted
to ask you a question, a question fraught
with all the Ware welfare of my life.
Have you in some remote corner of your
heart some tender feeling, and does your
thoughts ever revert to me? Do you love s
me? Will you answer this all absorbing
question the next time we meet? Will
you utter that winsome 'yes,' fraught
with all the golden dreams of heavenly
reams, or will yen pronounce . the dread
'No,' and consign my soul Ig., darkness
and despair ? Please answer and oblige
yours, forever. Crum= Nate Tong,
