THE SEC RET ARY OF THE TRBii.8lISY

'I'i^E.A.suRY DEPARTMENT.^

Becember 2, 1872,.
S I R : Wliatever degTce. of s access lias atten ded the administration of
the Treasury Department during tlie year is due largel3^ to tlie abilit^^ and
fidelity of the officers and clerks of the several bureaus and divisions.
There have heen some exceptions to the general good conduct of the
working force^ hut the number of these "^vill not be thought large when
it is known that more than three thousand persons are employed ixi
Washington^ of whom nearly- fourteen hundred are constantly engaged
in, handling coin, notes, and money securities-of the Government.
Many of these persons are paid fair wages for the services rendered,:
but others, who fill places of grea^t rcspqnsibilit37-, are not by any means
adequately compensated. Officers and clerks of known ability and
established reputation are frequently drawn away by offers of better
pay elsewhere. This competition will leave the busmess of the Department finally in the hands of the less valuable part of its officers.
A sense of justice leads me to recommend ah increase of salaries in
many cases, including the salaries of the Assistant Secretaries of the
Treasury.
Since my last annual report the business of negotiating two hundred
million of five per cent, bonds, and the redemption of two hundred
million of six per cent, five-twenty bonds, has been completed, and the
accounts have been settled by the accounting officers of the Treasury.
Further negotiations of ^ve per cent, bonds can how be made upon,
the basis of the former negotiation.
I think it expedient, as a means of giving additional value to the
bonds authorized by the Funding Act of July 14, 1870, and additional
security to the owners, that registered bonds of every issue should
be made convertible into coupon bonds at the will of the holder..
When this privilege is granted the desire to reconvert them will cease^

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY'' OF T.HE TREx^SURY^^.

The foregoing estimates are based upon the amount of revenue collected since the acts of May and June, 1872, went into operation; but
the imports have been large, and considerable sums have been obtained
by internal revenue officers on account of old taxes ahd claims 5 hence
it will be wise to leave the sources of revenue undisturbed fbr the
present session.
It is estimated that the expenditures for the same period will be:

Since the insti-tution of the sinking fund, in M.^j, 1869, and in accordance with the act of February 25, 1862, there has been purchased on
this account, up to and including June 30, 1872, $99,397,600 in bonds
of the various i.ssueS' known as five-twenties, at a net. cost in currency.
of $110,997,185 89, or an estimated cost, in gold, of $94,097,243 82. •
In addition to the purchases for the .sinking fund, bonds have been
purchased to the amount of $173,237',950, at a net'cost, in currency, of
$195,008,288 53, or an estimated cost, in gold, of $163,376,054 35. •
The cost of these bonds, estimated in gold, has varied from $82 21
per $100 to $99 99 per $100—the most recent purchase being at the
rate of $98 66 per $100,
The average cost, in gold, of the whole amount of the purchases, up
to and including the last da}'^ of September, was $94 64 per $100.
Jn this connection I would call attention to the various tables accompanying this report, which fnrnish elaborate details of the money operations and accounts of the Government.
The condition of our carrying trade Avith foreign countries is always
a subject of interest, and at, the present moment it is one of solicitudeo
The imports and exports of the IJnited States, excluding gold and silver,
amounted to $1,070,641,163, for the fiscal year ending June 30,1872, and
. of this vast trade only 28J per cent, was in American vessels. In the
year 1860 nearly 71 per cent, of our foreign comme^^ce was in American
ships; but in. 1864 it had fallen to^lO per cent., in 1868 to 44 per cent., and




X

REPORT O F . T H E SECRETARY OF T H E TREASURY.

in 1871 to less than 38 per cent. The earnings of vessels engaged in.
the foreign carrying trade probably exceed one hundred million dollars
a year, of which less than one-third is earned under our own flag.
The act of Congress allowing a drawback on foreign articles used in
the construction of American vessels ha.s given encouragement to shipbuilding ', but I am of opinion that this measure is entirely inadequate.
When we consider that nearly three-fourths of the foreign commerce
of the country is under foreign flags, it is plain that there can be no
considerable and speedy change unless the Government shall act at
once ancl in a liberal and comprehensive spirit. •
The rise hi the price of iron and the advance, in the wages of labor
in Enghind during the past year favor the Government and people of
the United States j hat this ad vantage, due to natural causes, should
not lead us to trust the future to the force of those causes, but should
induce us rather to act at once and with vigor. It may happen that
we can.not regain the control of the direct trade between Europe and
the United States, but there is an inonense field to be occupied upon
the Pacific ^Ocean and in the South Atlaixtic. England controls the
. markets of the world by ccntrolling the channels of communication,
aild I am. convhiced that a wonderiiil i.mpetus will be given to the
agricultural and manufacturing interests''qf the countr^^ by the increase
of our commercial marine. Merchants in distant countiies must purchase goods, at points Avith. which they have frequent and regular
communication., and when such, comnmnication exists with o.ne'country
only, the cost of'mercliandise becomes unimportant, as there are no
means of comj)ari.son; nor is there oppo:ctanity foi^ the advantages of,
co.rnpetition.. Hence n, great producing coimtry can afford to establish and mahitain hnes of steamships rq-jon the ocean, as tlie iiuMrect
benefits Avill much exceed the cost.
The details of our trade with foreign coantries, as repi^esented by
the returns made to the Statistical Burean, are also unsatisfactory. From
• these returns it appears that the hnports of merchandise for the
^
fiscal year ending June 30, 1872, were $626,595,077, and the exports
estimated in gold, were $444,046,086, showing a balance against the
country of $182,548,991. This balance is in some degree apparent
rather than. real. On the 30th of June, 1871, the value of goods
remaining hi warehouse was $68,324,659, while on the 30th of June,
1872, it was $122,211,266, showing an excess at the close of the last
.fiscal year of $53,886,607. Deducting this excess, we have a balance
based upon the actual consumption of the country of $128,662,384.
From this a further reduction should be made of $66,133,845, bemg
the excess of exports over the imports of gold. After these deductioB.s there sti.llrto.ains an adverse bahince of $62,528,539. This
• .

a?REASURY.

adverse balance has been met probably by freight on .merchandise
carried in American vessels, profits on exports made on account of
American merchants and shippers, the sale of bonds abroad, and investments in the United States by inhabitants of other countries.
The exx3orts of merchandise for the year 1872 .were $13,298,933 less
than for the year 1871. The exports of wdieat, wheat flour, raw cotton,
cotton manufactures, gold and silver, fire-arms, manufactures of leather,
illuminating oil, and beef, fell oif $82,066,325, while there w^as a gain of
$68,767,392 in the exports of corn, furs, hides, skins, bacon, hams,
lard, leaf tobacco, manufactures of iron, wood, leather, and many
minor articles. There vvas an in^rea.se of exports in evepy branch of
manufactures, except cotton, leather, and fire-arms.
The decrease of our exports in wheat and whea..t flour was twelve
million dollars: raw cotton, thirty-seven million dollars; manufactured
cotton, one million two hundred and fifty thousand dollars; gold and
silver, eleven million six hundred thousand dollars; fire-axms, twelve
million dollars j manufactures of leather, six hundred thousand dollars;'
illuminating oils, three million five hundred thousand dollars; and beef,
two million dollars.
. The statistics of iinports show a.^ hicrease of seven million in coffee,
eighteen, million in sugar, nearly six million in tea, nearly three million
in tin plates, more than seventeen million in raw wool, two million in
pig iron, ten million in manufactures of iron, Ave million in manufactures of cotton, fou/ million in inanufactures of silk, and about seven
million in manufactures of wool.
These statistics axe not presented as affording a basis tor legislation.,,
but rather because.they are exceptional in cha.racter, and not likely to
be repeated.
During the last year thorough examinations have been made of the
Mint at Philadelphia, and of the branch mints at San Francisco and .
Carson City, and exhaustive reports upon the condition of each, and
also upon several questions of a general character connected with the
mint service, made by Doctor Linderman and Professor Eogers, are to be
.printed for the use of the Departnient and Congress. F.rom these reports it appears that the service is in a satisfactory condition. In the
last ten years the commercial value of silver has depreciated about
three per cent, as compared with gold, and its use as currency has
been discontinued by Germany and some other countries. The financial condition of the United States has prevented the use df silver
as currency for more than ten years, and I am of opinion that upon
grounds of public polic}'' no attempt should be made to introduce itj
but that the coinage should be limited to commercial purposes, and designed exclusively for commercial uses with other nations.




XII

REPORT OF T H E

S]i':CRET.ARY OY THE TREASURY,

The intrinsic value of a metallic carrency should correspond to its
commercial value, or metal vShould be used only fbr the coinage of
tokens redeemable by the Government at their nominal value. As the
depreciation of silver is likely to continue it is impossible to issue coin
redeemable in gold without ultimate loss to the Government; for when
the difference becomes considerable holders will present the silver for
redemption, and leave it in the hands of the G overn.ment to be disposed
of subsequently at a loss.
If the policy should be adopted of issuing silver coin irredeemable,
but whose intrinsic and nominal value should correspond to gold, the
time must come when the country NN^)uld suffer from the presence of a
depreciated silver currency, not redeemable by the Government nor
cur^reiit in the channels of 'trade.
Tokens of base coin., except for small denominations, are less convenient tlian paper, and are subject to many other serious objections.
, The provision made by the Treasury Department for the redemT)tion of
mutilated paper money is much more ample than formerly, and I think
it practicable, through the Post Office Department, to make an arrangement by which the whole coiintr}^ shall be supplied with fresh.
issues of fracti.onal currency. •
^
Therefore, in renewing the recommendations heretofore made for the
passage of the Mint bill, I suggest such alterations as will prohibit the
coinage of silver for circuhition in this country, but that autliority be
given for the poinage of a si.h^er dolla,]? that shall be as valuable as the
Mexican dollar, an.d to be furnished at its actual cost. The Mexican dollar is used generally in trade with Chinai arid is now sold at a premium
of about eight per cent, over the actual expense of coining. As the
production of silver is rapidly increasing, sucli a coinage will at once
furnish a market for the raw material aiiid facilitate commerce between
the United States and China,.
It is ho exaggera^tion to say that a- necessity exi.sts for a new issue
of national bank notes. Tbe reasons for vsuch issue were given in my
last annual report,
I take this occasion to call the attention of Congress to a communication made by me to.the House of Eepresentaitives on the 22d day,of
.March, 1872, (Ex, Doc, 283, 42d Cong., 2d Sess.,) in which I recommended the enactment of a law for the relief of the Treasurer from
responsibility on account of the dishonest^^ of Seth Johnson and
Frederick A, Marden, formerly clerks' in his office5 and also for the
correction of certain discrepancies in the pu]3lic accounts, amounting tp
$406 35, that the books of the Department .may be macle to conform
to the facts...

REPORT

0.1^^ THli] SEORETA.R,Y OF THE TREASUI^f.

XIII

An examination of the affairs of the Office of the Assistant Treasurer at IS^ew York, made in September and October last, disclosed a
defalcation in the stamp division, in charge of James I. Johnsen, of
$185,131 72. The report of the committee explains the course of proceeding by which Johnson, was able to embezzle this amount of money.
The report farther represents that Mr. .Hillhouse, the Assistant Treasurer, cannot be charged properly with -^nj neglect of duty, and in this
opinion. I concur.
The business of keeping and selling stamps was imposed upon the
several Assistant Treasurers by virtue of the authority conferred upon
the Secretary of the Treasury in the Oth section of the act of August
G, 1846', but by the terms of that a.ct it was,not competent for the
Treasuiy Department to allow the Assistaut Treasurer at ISTew York
compensation for the labor and responsibility of the stamp division,
although the commissions which would have been payable to him at
the rate allowed to private parties by the 161st section of the act of
1864, amount to more than hve hundred thousand dollars.
The circumstances of this case are such as to justify me in recom-'
mending the passage of a law by which Mr. Hillhouse shall be relieved,
from responsibility in the matter of the defalcation of Johnson.
The report of the Supervising Architect o f t h e Treasury furnishes
a concise statement of the cost and condition of the public buildingsin charge of this Department. Large sums of money will be needed
f5r the buildings already begun or authorized, and I respectfnlly
advise that, beyond the erection of pavilion hospitals, and a building
for the accommodation of the Bureau of Engtaving and Printing and
the storage of the books and papers of this Department, no new works
be authorized at the present session of Congress.
.
•
The business of the office of the Supervising Architect of the Treasury is fully equal to tlie force employed, and the necessary appropriations are so laxge as to justify Congress in refusing all applications
during the present session.
•
The destruction of the buildings on the easterly side ofthe new post
office in the city of .Boston furnishes an opportunity that ought not to
be lost for the purchase of the remainder of the square.
An. act approved June 8,1872, authorized.and directed the Secretary
of the Treasury to purchase a lot of ground in Philadelphia for the
accommodation of the post office and United States courts, and to
erect a building thereon, the cost of the whole not to exceed the sum
of one million five hundred thousand dollars. Under this act, and
following the usage of the Department, I appointed a commission of
citizens of Philadelphia, Avho were authorized to receive proposals for
the sale to the Government of a suitable lot of land. The report of

the commission has been submitted to the Department, from which
it appears that tlie lot thought to be most desirable, situated on the
corner of Chestnut and Mntli streets, can be purchased at a cost of
$925,333 33. It also appears tha^ the cost of a sufficient quantity of
land to make the site of tlie present post office available would exceed
half a .million dollars.
Accepting the conclusions of the commission as final in reference to
the cost of a suitable site, I have declined to proceed farther without
additional authority from Congress5 it being clear that itis impossible
to procure land and erect a building for the sum specified in the act.
Similar circumstances have prevented the purchase of land. for a
public building at Cincinnati.
The increase of books and papers, not in daily or fI'equent use, is so
great as to seriously interfere with, the business, of the Department.
The annual a.ccumulation requires, 7,688 cubic feet of space for storage.
All the available rooms in the building, including some that might be
used for cleiks' desks, and portions of the public halls, have been given
up for the deposit of such books and papers, and the time has come
when other provision should be niade. I, therefore, recommend the
erection of a brick fire-proof building upon tlie public grounds south of
the Treasury sufficient for storage and "for the accommodation of the
Bureau of Engraving and Printing. The relief which these changes
would afford is essential for the pi'oper transaction of the business of
the Treasury Department.
The operations of the .Coast Survey, as w-ell as those of the Lighthouse Board, appear to have been economically and efficiently managed.

The Eevenue Marine consists of tv/eiity-seven steam and Vsix sailmg
vessels, carrying sixty-five guns, and manned b3^ one hundred and
ninety-eight officers and eight hundred and sixt}^ men. This service
has constantly imin'oved in efficiency and in the economy of its management since the summer of 1869. At that time a commission was
appointed for the general and professional examination of all the
officers employed, and upon their report thirty-nine were discharged,
and those who Avere a^Dproved were, assigned to duty and given rank,
according to their merits. From that time to ^ e present all vacancies
in the service have been filled after an examination, and by thos^e found
to be best qualified. At the same time a commission was appointed
for i:he entire revision of the service. Their report was submitted to
Congress on the 26th of May, 1870. (Ex. Doc 93,' 41st Cong., 2d Sess.)
The vessels then employed were rated at 9,208 tons. A reduction has
already been effected of 657 tons, and the vessels now building and
authorized will work a further reduction of 1,232 tons, making an.
aggregate reduction of 1,889 tons.

The cost of maintaining the Eevenue Marine lias been reduced from
$1,293,661 67, in 1868, to $930,249 81 for the year ending June 30,1872..
• Statistical tables prepared from the returns show^ that, in the essential particulars of assistance rendered to vessels, seizures made, number
of vessels examined, and number of lives saved upon the ocean and
the lakes, the work performed during the last fiscal yiear is nearly twice
as great as the average for the ten preceding yearsi
Under existing laws the officers and seamen of'the Eevenue Marine
are entitled to a pension only when tliey have .been wo]j|ided or dis^
abled in the. line of duty, and v^diilst cooperating with the ilavy during
war, and then at the rate established by the act of 1814. When it is
considered that this service is constant, and that from the first of
l^ovember to the first of April in each year the vessels are required to
cruise along the coast, and as near the land as possible, within their
respective districts, and not to make a port except for supplies or under the
pressure of positive necessitj^, it is clear that their services are not less
hazardous than those m which the IsTavy is engaged in time of peace.
I, therefore, recommend that the ."N"avy pension law's be made applicable to.the officers and seamen of the-Eevenue Marine.
The nuinber of commissioned officers is limited bylaw, ajftl each year
adds to those svho are disqualified hv sickness or unfitted b}^ age for
active duty. The hardship resulting from the dismissal of officers
under such circumstances is so great that I have declined to exercise
a power which may, perhaps,, in contemplatioji of la,w, be a duty; but
in view of the fact that their compensation is small, and the nature of
the service such as to bring disease and the infirmities of age upon
them prematuiely, I think it a plain duty for the Government to provide a retired list so t h a t t h e active service may be supplied constantly
with able and efficient men.
From the ai3propriation of $200,000, made April 20, 1871, ^- for more
effectually securing life and property on the coasts of IsTew Jersey
and Long Island,^' seven of the old life-saving station-houses have been
repaired and enlarged, and sixty-one new ones have been built, and
new apparatus sufficient for ordinary use has been procured for the
larger number of them.
A station-house ha.s been erected and furnished at E"arragansett pier.
F r o m t h e appropriation of $50,000,/^ for the establishment of hfesavhig stations o.n the coasts of Cape Cod and Block Island, E, I., nine
houses have been erected on Cape Cod and one on Block Island, and they will be supplied with apparatus and ready for use by the first of Janu- ary next. An appropriation is required fbr the support of keepers and
crews.

The Block Island sta,tion and the station at IsTarragansett pier should
be annexed to the Lonj^i- Island district.

REPORT OF T H E . SECRETARY

OF THE

TREASURY.

Twenty-tvfo vessels have been wrecked on the coasts of Long Island
and IS^ew Jersey since July 1, 1871, valued, with their cargoes, at over
$500,000, on vv^hich the loss was about $200,000. The officers and crews
numbered two hundred and six persons, all of whom were saved, and
-mainly, it is believed, through the agency ofthe life-saving stations.
I respectfully recommend the extension of the system to the coast in .
the vicinity of Cape Hatteras.
From the report of the Supervising Surgeon of Ma-rine Hospitals it
appears th^, that branch of the public service is in a satisfactory
condition.
•
During the last fiscal year 13,156 i')atients were trea^ted in the several
hospitals ofthe country at an. average cost of about 97 cents each per day,
or a total expenditure of $396,263 11, against a total expenditure for
the preceding year of $453,082 42, or an average cost per patient of
$1 04 per day. •
" • .
The increased receipts and diminished expenses for the last fiscal
year, as compared with the year next preceding, show a net gain to
the Government of $56,819'31.
During the same period the number of districts in which relief
wa^s farnislfed was greater than ever before, and the salaries of medical officers at several >of the principal ports were increased.
The financial improvement shov/n is due largely to a more careful
scrutiny of the applicants for relief, to the rejection of those who
were not entitled under t h e l a w , and also to greater vigilance in
collecting the hospital dues.
The law limits the charge fbr relief to seamen belonging to foreign
vessels to seventy-five cents a day, while the actual cost is nearly one
dollar. Authority should be given to the Secretary of the Treasury to
fix the charge within certain, limits, according to the expenses incurred
at the hospitals where relief is furnished.
I renew the recommendation heretofore made for the erection of
pavilion hospitals at ISTew York, San Francisco, and Pittsburg. The
increase of railway and general bushiess in the vicinity of the hospital
at Pittsburg has rendered it unfit for further use.
The Supervishig Surgeon recbmmends the erection in future of
pavilion hospitals of wood, with the understanding that after ten or
fifteen years' use they are to be destroyed and new ones built in their
stead. This recommenda;tion a^ppears to be wise, being at once economical for the Government and advantageous to the patients.
The act of February 28, 1871, to provide .for the better security of .
life on board vessels .propelled in whole or in part by steam, .has not
been in operation a sufficient time to test its value in all respects; but
the result i n t h e main is satisfactory. The Supervising Inspector.

General, in his annual report, recommends several alterations in the
law hot affecting its character materially. A bill will be prepared
providing for such alterations as, upon further consideration, shall
seem expedient.
On the 16th day of May, 1872,1 transmitted to Congress a bill entitled
^ A bill to amend and consolidate the navigation and customs collection
^
laws of the United States," together with a communication explaining
the character and purpose of the measure. (Ex. Doc. 290, 42d Cong.,
2d Sess.) I respectfully ask the attention of Congress to the bill and
the reasons for its passage.
The time has come when the attention of the public is turned naturally to the futoi'e financial policy of the country. That policy must
rest upon the past and the present.
The war caused three great changes in business and financial affairs
that have received the careful consideration of the American people.
I. The country was compelled to impose heavy cnstoms duties upon
merchandise, and thus, without general observation and without argument upon the principles involved, the nation entered upon a broad
system of protection.
II. The Government issued Treasury notes for general circulation a.s.
currency, and prohibited banks of issue by State authority.
III. A systein of national banks was established, and their circulation protected by the national credit.
The wisdom of these measures, speaking generall}^, has been established; and, subject to such changes as the changing condition and
opinions of the country and people may demand, the}^ will remain a
part of our public policy until the financial consequences of the war
disappear. The Aveight of the national debt has been so great that for
more than ten years there has been no opportunity for the practical
discussion of the doctrines of protection and free trade, and in that long
period of an unchanged protective policy incident to the burdens of
the war the nation has advanced rapidly and safely in the development of its natural resources.
Anticipating a condition of peace, we may also anticipate a general
reduction in the percentage of custonis duties. This reduction, however,
should notbe measured solely by the wants of the Treasury; but regard
should be had also to the condition of the various branches of industry in which the people are engaged. In presence of the fact that the
leading pursuits of the. country are stronger than ever before in the
possession of adequate capital and a supply of intelligent laborers,
there may be a moderate reduction from time to time in the rate of
duties, as the diminishing expenses of the Government shall permit,
without either alarming capital or injuring labor.




XVIII

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

For the purposes of government, the principles of political economy
are national, and not cosmopolitan. A nation that can produce a given
article at less cost than it can be produced elsewhere may wisely accept
free trade in it; but a nation having natural advantages for its production, yet destitute of skill in the incident art or trade, must wait for tlie
opportunity that sometimes cPines from the calamity of Avar, or secure
a more economical and a more constant support in the policy of its
Government. If aA^erage natural facilities exist, the period of necessary
protection is ai, short one compared with the lifetime of a nation; Avhile
the advantages gained can ncA'cr be Avholly lost. But if reasonable
natural facilities do not exist, tlien a systein of duties for protection is
a present and. future burden Avithout adequate coinpensation. So
A^aried and rich, hoAvever, are the natural resources of the United
States, that Ave either are or may soon be in successful com]3etition with
the older and more experienced countries of the Avorld in the production of
the chief articlies of personal necessity, comfort, and luxury, and of the
machinery by which these articles are produced or obtained.
Herein is a sufficient justification for the existing protective system,
and for its continuance during the transition period.
I^or is the prospect of ultimate successful competition Avitli other
countries disturbed by the circumstance that the AA^ages of labor are
higher in this country than in those. If, ten -years since, it Avas the
thought of any that the only Avay to a successful contest Avith Europe
Avas in the reduction of the Avages of labor to the European standard,
that thought has disappeared, probably, in presence of the fact that
high wages on this side of the Atlantic have stimulated emigration,
until there is a nea<r approach to equality in the cost-of labor,
and of the coexisting fact tha,t the addition thus made to the
number of laborers has only aided in the development of our resources,
Avithout yielding in.any quarter an excess of products, or retarding in
any degree the prosperity of the laboring population.
This prosperity on their part' is associated Avith a higher and constantly improving intellectual and social culture and condition. It
being giA^^en that an intelligent person lias all the special knoAvledge of
an art or trade possessed by the most experienced and best-trained
operatiA^e, Avho, outside of this special training and experience, is an
ignorant person, and equal advantages of capital and machinery being
giA^en also, the intelligent person proceeds to improve and simplify
methods of production to such an extent that an addition to his wages
of even a hundred per cent, represents but a small part of the adA^antage gained.
Yet the special training and knoAvledge of the ignorant man is the
basis of the improA^ements made. This truth, considered first Avith

reference to a single American laborer and then multiplied many hundred thousand times, represents the advantage of America O ^ e Europe
A ^r
, and Asia in the contest for final peaceful supremacy in the affairs of
the world. Thus is America solving the industrial problem of the ages
by extorting cheap production from expensiA^e labor.
The reason for these remarks may be found in the opinion I entertain, that the tariff* system of the country has contributed largely to
the gerieral prosperity; and that'such general and continued prosperity is the only basis on Avhich CA^en a wise financial policy can rest.
In discussing the other changes caused h j the Avar, the issues of
United States notes and of notes by the national banks should be considered together; indeed they are necessary parts of our financial system,
and neither can be substituted for the other without general disturbance
and permanent injury. The national banking system is so far superior
to the State bank system, and to any system of priA^ate banks, as to
render argument in its behalf, in these resjiects, unnecessary; while
the substitution of an equal amount of United States notes as currency Avould be productive of serious CAnls and losses.
First. The national banks hold nearly four hundred million United
States bonds, which otherwise w^ould be thrown upon the market, absorbing domestic capital, or, if purchased abroad, adding, by the
amount of the interest, to the annual balances against us in our account
current Avith other countries.
Secondly. One office of a bank is to aggregate the capital of small
possessors, and thereby to furnish means in aid of iinportant commercial and .financial undertakings, not only at the centres, but in the
remote and newly-settled parts of the country.
Thirdly. The national banks are used as aids to the GoA^ernment,
Avhich otherwise Avould require a large increase in the number of
designated depositaries, and a proportionate increase of the public
expenses without the least appreciable advantage.
Fourthly. They facilitate exchanges between different sections of
the country, thus diminishing the cost of commercial transactions.
Fifthly. They are generally less disposed than priA^ate parties, controlling equal capital, to demand exorbitant rates of interest.
But it does not folloAv from these views, nor Avould it follow from
those of a similar character which might be presented, that the system
is xierfect j nor does it follow that the issue of notes directly by the
GoA^ernment should be surrendered and the business of furnishing a
currency yielded to the national banks.
The circulation of each bank is fixed arbitrarily by a rule of law.
The aggregate circulation is therefore a fixed sum, and consequently




XX

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

there is practically no reserA^e to meet the increased demand for money
due occasionally to extraordinary CA^ents at home or abroad, and
arising periodically Avitli the incoming of the harA^est. The old State
bank system is sometimes commended for the quality termed elasticit}^;
. but that quality as found in that system was the principal source of
financial disaster. Under that system, in the absence of a present
demand for coin, there Avas practically no limit to tlie issue of paper
currency.
The increase of the circulation Avas attended and followed by an
advance in prices, excessive importations, a consequent demand for
coin draAAai from the banks to meet balances abroad, a simultaneous
reduction, of the paper currencj^, and the consequent distress of
merchants and bankers.
As the circulation of a, bank is a source of profit, and as the managers
are usually dispos.ed to oblige their patrons by loans and accommodations, it can never be wise to allow banks or parties who have pecuniary
interests at stake to increase or diminish the A^olume of currenc}' in the
country at their pleasure. iTor do I find hi the condition of things
a law or rule on Avhich Ave can safely relj^ Upon these AQCAVS I form
the conclusion that the circulation of the banks should be fixed and
limited, and'that the poAver to change the A^olume of paper in circulation,
Anthin limits established by laAv, should remain hi the Treasury Department.
A degree of flexibility i]i the A^olume of currency is essential for tAvo
reasons:
First. The business of the Department cannot be transacted jiroperly
if a limit is fixed, and the power to raise the circulation aboA^e or reduce
it below that limit is denied.
A rule of this nature would compel the Secretary to accumulate a
large currency balance and to hold i t ; as, otherwise, the credit of the
Government, in meeting the ordinary daily claims upon it, would be at
the mercy of every serious business and political revulsion in the
United States or Europe. '
Especially Avould this be true IIOAV that our ordinaiy currency expenditures are greatly in excess of our currency rcA^enue.
Secondly. There is a necessity CA^ery autumn for moAdiig the crops
Avithout delay from the South and West to the seaboard that they may
be in hand for export and consumption as wanted. This work should
be done in the main before the lakes, riA^^ers, and canals are closed, and
yet it cannot be done Avithout the use of large amounts of currency.
In the summer months funds accumulate at the centres, but tlie renewal of business in August and September giA^es employment for
large sums, and leaA^es little or nothing for forwarding the crops inOctober and ISToA^ember.



REPORT OF T H E SECRETARY OF TPIE TREASURY.

]^or Avould this difficulty be obviated by a permanent increase or a
permanent reduction of the volume of currency. The difficulty is due
to the natural order of things, and increases with the prosperity of the
country as shown in the abundance of its harvests.
The crops cannot be moved generally by the aid of bank balances,
checks, and letters of credit, but only by bank notes and United States
notes paid at once to the producers. This money finds its way speedily into the channels of trade and to the commercial centres;. but if it
be allowed to remain for general use, after the reason for its issue has
ceased, the A^olume of currency would be increased permanently and
the year folloAving the same process Avould be repeated with the same
results, and thus would the country depart more and more widely from
the policj'^ of resumption.
The problem is to find a Avay of increasing the currency for moving
the crops and diminishing it at once when that work is done. This is
a necessary Avork, and, inasmuch as it cannot be confided to the banks,
AA^here, but in the Treasury Department, can the power be reposed 1
While the currency revenue Avas in excess of the currency expenses
it was practicable to accumulate large balances in the Treasury during
the summer, to be used, if necessar}-, in the purchase of bonds in the
autumn, thereby meeting the UvSual demand for currency at that season
of the year.
Hereafter such accumulations must be made by the sale of gold, and
the sale of gold in large quantities during the summer, when business
is the least active, may not always be consistent with the best interests
of the country. Eeliance cannot, therefore, be placed upon the abilit}^
of the Treasury to accumulate a currency balance each 'year for the
purpose indicated.
The argument in favor of. a paper curren 03^, composed in part of
United States notes and in part of national bank notes, is strengthened by the aid Avhich may thns be furnished in resuming and maintaining specie payments. In the view I am now to take, I exclude the
idea that the Government Avill ev^er abandon the issue of national bank
notes, and undertake the issue of United States notes in their place.
The result of such a policy may be foreseen. The people, depriA^ed of
the facilities for business afforded by banks, would seek relief through
State iiLstitutions, and without much delay Congress Avould concede to
them the right to issue notes for circulation. This concession would
be folloAved by a surrender by the General GoA^ernment of all control
over the paper circulation of the country.
The true policy will be found in continuing the national banking sy*-

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY^ OF THE TREASURY.

tem, Avithout, howcA^^er, yielding to tlie claim for a material increase of
its issues in proportion to the A^olume of paper in circulation.
There are two effectual and certain Avays of placing the country in a
condition when specie and paper will possess the same commercial
value. By diminishing the amount of paper in circulation, the difference between the commercial A^alue of paper and coin will diminish,
and by pui'suing this policy the difference Avill disappear altogether.
All legislation limited in its operation to the paper issues of the
banks and of the GoA^ernment, whether bearing interest or not, and
Avhich in its effects, shall tend to diminish the market A^alue of coin, will
be found, upon analysis, to contain a plan for contracting the A^olume
of paper currency; and all legislation, so limited, AAdiich does not contain such a plan, Avill proA^e ineffectual.
Accepting this proposition, and belieAdng that the country is not
prepared to sustain the policy of contraction, it onl.3^ remains for
me to consider the means by Avhich the A^alue of our currency may be
improved.
The basis of a policy of improvement must be found in a sturdy
refusal to add to the paper in circulation, until it is ofthe tSame A'-alue,
siibstantially, as coin.
This being accepted as the settled purpose of the country, there can
be no permanent increavse of the difference betAveen paper and coin,
and an opportunity Avill be giA^en for the influence of natural causes,
tending, upon the Avhole, to a better financial condition.
We may count, first, among these, the increase of population and its
distribution OA^er UCAV fields of business and labor. Secondly, in the
South especially, the number of persons having propertj^ and using
and holding money will increase. ISText, Ave may anticipate a more
general use of paper in Texas and the Pacific States, by Avhich, practically, for the rest of the countrj'', the A^olume of paper Avill be diminished
and the quantity of coin increansed—two facts tending to produce an
equality of A^alue.
The influence of these natural causes Avill be counteracted in some
degree by the increasing facility for the transfer of inoney from one
point to another, and by the greater use of bank checks and (Certificates
of deposit. The rapid transit of merchandise, in bringing the period
of its consumption nearer to the time of its production, is an agencY of
a shnilar sort. Giving to these Adews their full Aveight, I am prepared
to say that the experience of the last three years coincides with the best
judgment I can form, and AvaTrants the opinion that under the influence
of existing natural causes our financial condition Avill gradually improve. During the last,fiseal year there Avere SOA-eral circumstances of
itn unusual, cliaracter tending to counteract the natural course of




REPOR^i: OF THE SECRETARY OF T^HE TREASURY.

affairs. Our exports of cotton fell off thirty-seven million dollars, and
there Avere excessive imports of AVOOI, tea, coffee, and sugar.
The stock of wool in warehouse on the 30th of June was sufficient
for six months' consuinption, of sugar for four and a half months, of
eoffee forfiA^emonths, and of tea for twelve inonths. In the ordinary
course of trade, the importation of these articles Avill be small during
the current year, with a consequent faA^orable effect upon the balance
between this and other countries.
This anticipation, of the Avants of the country, in connection with the
decrease of our exports, augmented the balance of trade, created an
active demand for coin, and advanced the price.
Notwithstanding these adA^^erse influences, gold has aA^eraged substantially the same premium from January 1 to ^SToA^ember 1 of the
present year as for the corresponding period of 1871. Not doubting
that natural causes Avill in time produce the result sought, it is yet
adAdsable to bring the poAver of the GoA^ernment in aid of the moA^ement as far as practicable.
The revival of our foreign commerce is one instrumentality, and perhaps the most efficient one of all. If the annual earnings of American
A^essels were eighty million instead of thirty the difference in the amount
of exchange aA^ailable abroad would meet a large part of the adverse
balance in ordinary years. The experience of Europe tends to shoAV
that the ability of a country to maintain specie payments is due largely
to the condition of its foreign trade. Next, CA^ery measure which
increases or improA^es the channels of transportation between the seaboard and the cotton and grain-growing regions of the country, or
lessens the cost of freight, adds somethin g to our capacity to compete
successfully in the markets of the Avorld.
Finally, those measures which encourage American inanufactures,
especially of iron, AVOOI, and cotton, and discourage the importation of
like products, affect faA^orably the balance of trade and help us towards
the end we seek.
This statement, in three parts, is a general statement of a policy that
in my opinion will aid the country in reaching a condition when. ,it
Avill be practicable to resume and maintain sx3ecie payments.
Anticipating that day, I anticipate also that the burden of resumption
will rest ux)on the Government. There are now more than nineteen

* A comparison of the statements of the public debt for July, 1871, and -luly, 1872, makes the amount of this loan redeemed $250 less than fhe amount here given. This
error arose frora the fact that a certificate for this amount was redeemed and deducted from the debt statenient in December, 1869. In Ja.nu.ary, 1870, an advance was made to
the Treasurer for the same certificate, and the amount Avas again deducted from the debt statement. This made the amoun t outstanding by the debt statement $2.50 less than it
should be. The discovery and correction of this error iu October, 1871, occasions the discrepancy in the two accounts.

various debts and claims, but in the transaction no money ever came into the Treasury. When the
stock matured it was paid out of the general funds then in'the Treasury. This showed an expenditure
where there lipd been wo corresponding receipt, and, of course, a. st.atement of the debt made from the
receipts and expenditures on accountof loans and Treasury notes would not be correct unless these
items were added to the receipt side of tbe account. This caunot be done until legislation has been

The following amounts represent the discounts suffered in placing the loans named ;
only lhe money actually received was covered into the Treasury. The difference between this and the face value of the stock issued was the discount. To make the

NOTE.—The bonded debt of the IJnited States has been' reduced by the amount of these bonds, -\rhich have ceased to bear interest and have been canceled and destroyed.
This statement does not include the'six-per-cent. bonds converted into fives, nor the redemption of past due and called securities, which have also ceased to bear interest and
haA-e been canceled and destroyed. Those items marked (*) are the bonds bought with the proceeds of the interest collected on the bonds previously purchased. These
"interest-purchases" were discontinued after the passage of the act of July 14,1870, (16 Statutes, 272,) authorizing the refunding of the national debt and directing the cancellation and destruction of the bonds purchased. All bonds, whether purchased, redeemed, or received in exchange for other bonds bearing a lower rate of interest, either before
or since the date of that act, have ceased to bear interest, and the annual interest-charge has been reduced by the amount of interest that would have been payable on the first
two classes, and the difference in rate on the last class, but for such redemption, purchase, or exchange.

* These figures will be found to vary from those in .the statement of the public debt for July 1,1872. The differences are: In the Central Pacific account this statement is
$764.63 and in the Western Pacific account $65.18 less thau is shown by the debt statement for the same items in the first column, and the same amounts more in the second column. This difference arises out of the issue of $4,120 in bonds to the first-named road and $560 ia bonds to the last named, in final settlement of their account. The interest
on these bonds was paid on special schedules and the amount was included in the debt statement as paid, without being shown in the "Interest due and not yet paid" column.
The subsequent statements of the debt Avill be found to agree with this statement.
t In the debt statement for July 1,1872, these items differ from this statement by $4,687.50, arising frpm this amount, earned by the Central Branch Union Pacific, having
been credited in the stock-ledger to the Central Pacific. The error was not discovered until the accounts of the several roads were settled in October, 1872, and after that date
the- error is corrected in the debt statement.

. COMMISSIONER OF INTERNAL REVENUE.

55

The total quantity of spirits in the United States not in internal
revenue warehouses on the 1st of May, 1872, was 39,672,197 proofgallons.
' I would recommend that section 54 of the act of July 20, 1868, as
amended by the act of June 6, 1872, be further amended so as to authorize you, in a more explicit manner than at present provided, to require
export bonds of persons applying to export distilled spirits for the benfit of drawback. It is desirable that the language on this point should
be perfectly clear and unquestionable, inasmuch as the exportation of
spirits on which the tax has not been paid will be affected thereby as
well as that provided for in section 54. .
By the act of June 6, 1872, the fees of gaugers and the per diem
compensation of storekeepers were made payable by the United States
withoutre-imbursement by distillers, except bythe increased rate of tax.
on distilled spirits, this increased rate having been determined partly
by taking into account the amount heretofore paid for the services of
such oi^&cers. But experience has already demonstrated that the amount
to be paid will be not only greater (notwithstanding my most strenuous
efforts to the contrary) than ever before, but also greater in proportion
to the quantity of spirits produced.
It is apparent that the retention of spirits in the warehouse after the
distiller has ceased operations, extends the time for payment of the tax
due, and is therefore for his benefit only. In view of this, and the foregoing statement, I would recommend t-hat when a distiller has ceased
operations, the pay of the storekeeper for subsequent services at his distillery w^arehouse, in consequence of spirits remaining therein, shall be
re-imbursed to the United States by the distiller.FERMENTED LIQUORS.

By the act of June 6,1872, the act of July 13,1806, so far as it relates
to fermented liquors, was re-enacted with some amendments, made at •
the solicitation of the principal brewers of the United States, designed
to afford brewers better facilities than heretofore for the conduct of their
business under internal revenue laws.
These concessions do not appear to have been of a character to endanger the public interests, as the following statement will show:
The tax receiyed on fermented liquors at $1 per barrel during the first
quarter, of the fiscal year ended June 30, 1872, was $2,217,291 93, while
the receipts from the same source during the first three months of the
present fiscal year amount to $2,684,241, an increase of $466,949 07.
The average increase of about a million dollars annually during the
last three fiscal years, as contrasted with the stationary character of the
receipts during the four years next preceding, is certainly gratifying, but
the increase during the first three months df the ])resent fiscal year, as
above stated, far exceeds that of any corresponding period in any other
year since the organization of this Office.

• I would recommend that sections 18 and 22 be so amended as to provide for packages known as "thirds." The act of March 2, 1867, authorized their use to accommodate brewers west of the Eock:y Mountains, who are compelled to send their products from their breweries to
the consumer or retailer on the backs pf mules; this sized package
being specially adapted to such a mode of conveyance. '' Thirds '^ appear
to have been omitted in the act of June 6, 1872, through inadvertence,
and they should be restored.
The amendments made by the act of June 6, 1872, to section 59 of
the a3t of July 20, 1868, as amended April 10, 1869, relating to the
special taxes for selling spirituous and malt liquors ^and wines, were, it
has appeared to me, intended simply to provide that, in addition to the
former classes of liquor dealers, there should be two classes at a lower
special tax authorized to sell malt liquors only, leaving to the formjer
classes of liquor dealers the privilege of selling malt liquors which they
previously possessed; also leaving unchanged the exemption from
special tax as wholesale dealers extended to brewers >yho sold fermented
liquors of their own production at the brewery in the original packages.
Nevertheless that intention is not so clearly expressed by the language
of the section as amended as is. desirable in so important a provision of
law.
To prevent the injustice which might be done by acting upon a more
technical construction of the language used as to the several classes of
liquor dealers and malt liquor dealers, I issued on the 30th of September last instructions to assessors and collectors to make assessments and
collections in accordance with the above expressed view of the intentions of Congress, until I could bring the question to the attention of
that body ; and I also suspended the collection of all assessments which
had been made contrary to that construction.
In view of this, I would respectfully recommend that the language of
the section be made more explicit. I would also recommend that retail
dealers in malt liquors be limited in their sales to quantities less than
^ve gallons, and that those selling in quantities of five gallons and upwards be required to pay the wholesale dealer's tax.
TOBACCO.

The total receipts from tobacco for the fiscal year ended June 30,
1872, were $33,736,170 52. Compared with the total receipts for the
fiscal year ended June 30, 1871, the following results are shown:

The numberof cigars, cheroots, &c., onwhich taxes were collected

From the above statement it will be.seen that the entire product of
manufactured tobacco reported for the fiscal year ended June 30,1872, exceeds the total product of the preceding fiscal year by 1,431,892
pounds, while the aggregate quantity which reached taxation for the
last fiscal year was only 73,815 pounds in excess of the quantity which
reached taxation the preceding year.
During the last fiscal year the quantity of class 16 cents, or smoking
tobacco, was increased by 6,333,654 pounds, while the quantity of class
32 cents, or chewing tobacco, was diminished by 6,259,839 pounds, as
compared with the preceding year.' This change in the relative proportions of the two classes of tobacco was owing, no doubt, in a great
measure, to the agitation of the question of taxation during several



68

REPORT ON TH'E FINANCES.

months prior to the passage of the act of June 6,1872, which providesfor a uniform rate of 20 cents per pound on all descriptions of manufactured tobacco, in lieu of a graded tax. The anticipated increase of tax
on class 16 cents smoking tobacco greatly stimulated the production
and sale of this grade, of tobacco during the last months ofthe year,
while the prospect of a decrease pf tax on class 32 cents, or chewing
'tobacco, operated largely to diminish the sale or removal, except in
bond, of this grade of tobacco." Since July 1, the time when the new
rate of taxation took effect, the sale and removal of plug and other
kinSs of tobacco on which the tax was diminished has been unprecedently.large, and the collections for the first quarter of the present fiscal
year from tobacco are greatly in excess of those made from the sarae
source during the same quarter for any previous fiscal year.
UNIFORM RATE OF TAX.

So far as I am able to judge, the law providing for a uniform rate of
tax on all manufactured tobacco, whether chewing or smoking, is operating very satisfactorily. There is now no reason why revenue officers
should examine into the modes of manufacturing tobacco employed by
any one, or for opening or examining any package to ascertain the
character of its contents. If the package is a legal one, and h as upon
it a proper revenue stamp denoting the payment of the tax, with such
additional marks, brands, and labels as the law^ prescribes, no officer is
authorized to examine it further. Owing to the disturbing causes
already referred'to which have affected the trade for some months past It
is now too early to predict with entire certainty what will bp the actual
result of the present uniform tax on the amount of revenue to be collected. I have, however, reason to believe that, with the additional
safe guards provided by the new law against the sale of manufactured
tobacco in fraud ofthe revenue, and with the taxes imposed upon the sale
at retail of raw or leaf tobacco for consumption without its being subjected to any process of manufacture, the collections from tobacco
under the uniform rate of 20 cents a pound, which, is a reduction of
more than six cents^a pound from the average rate for the last two fiscal years, will reach nearly if not quite the sums realized for either of
the same years. In making this estimate I am relying upon making
collections on from eight to ten millions of pounds more of manufactured
tobacco in consequence of the restrictions which the act of June 6,1872,
has placed upon the sale, for consumption, of raw^ or leaf tobacco.

COMMISSIONER OF-INTERNAL REVENUE.-

59

By the act of June 6, 1872, the system of export bonded warehouses
authorized by the act of July 20, 1868, was abolished, and the several
warehouses established under said act are to be discontinued after the
expiration of six months from the passage of the first named' act. As the
average quantity of tobacco withdrawn for export and consumption for
the fiscal years ended June 30, 1871, and June 30, 1872, respectively, exceeded twenty millions of pounds, it was thought at the time of the passage of the law that six months would be ample time for the holders of
tobacco then in bond, which was considerably less than eight millions
of pounds, but increased after the passage of the act to the quantity
given above as the balance on the 1st day of July, either to withdraw
the same for export, or for sale and consumption, upon the payment of
the tax. The reports received from month to month from the collectors
in charge of bonded warehouses show that this quantity has been constantly diminishing, so that no great hardship will be imposed upoii the
owners of this tobacco by requiring them to affix stamps and withdraw^
the comparatively small quantity remaining in the warehouses at the
expiration of the six montlis which the law allows for closing them out.
This view of the case is especially apparent wheii the fact is taken into
consideration, "that the owners of this tobacco have already had six
months? credit for the taxes due on all of it, and on a considerable
portion, a much longer time; and also the further fact, that these
tobaccos, after having been stamped, can at any time be exported,
and the owners obtain a drawback for the amount of tax which shallbe
shown to have been paid on them. In Baltimore the two warehouses
have already been closed out by the action of the warehouse" men, and
I have given instructions to the different collectors under whose control
the other warehouses are, to take the proper steps to close them all out
immediately upon the expiration of the time fixed by law, by advertising for sale by the Government all tobacco which shall not then have
been withdrawn by the owners.
.
The act of June 6, 1872, provides two modes for the exportation of
manufactured tobacco to foreign countries. First, directly from the
manufactory without the payment of any tax ; and secondly, from the
store or warehouse of the jobber, dealer, or commission merchant, after
the tax has been paid, with an allowance of drawback on the presentation of proper evidence that the tobacco has been exported and landed in
a foreign country or lost at sea. The few months that have intervened
since the adoption of the new system have by no means afforded suf.ficient opportunity to test its practicability. Thus far, the two systems
have both been in operation at the same time, the tobacco stored in warehouses being exported under the regulations in force at the time when
the late act was passed, while direct exportations from the manufactories have been made under the new regulations. The two systems operating concurrently have not tended to harmony. I have
seen nothing, however, as yet, which leads me to distrust the prac•ticability and complete success of the. provisions made by the act of
June 6,1872, for facilitating the exportation of tobacco to foreign countries. Any radical change in the law and regulations touching a business so varied and extensive as is the tobacco 'trade, requires time for
persons engaged in it to accustom themselves to the alteration. For
this reason such changes should be as infrequent as possible, and only
made upon urgent necessity. That such a necessity existed for abolishing the old system of bonded warehouses at ports of entry, which allowed tobacco to be stored therein for home consumption as well as for
export, and to be withdrawn therefrom at any time upon the paj^men^



'60

REPORT ON THE FINANCES.

•of the tax, few persons except those who enjoyedthe privileges of such
warehouses have expressed a doubt. Under the present law the credit
system is entirely dispensed with, and no special privileges are given for
making a monopoly of the trade in manufactured tobacco. All tobacco.
is required to have proper stamps affixed, indicating the payment of
the tax, before it is removed from the place where it is made, except
that which is intended for and actually bonded for export to a foreign
country before it leaves the manufactory. This system, it is believed,
will greatly widen the field for exportation, since it provides for direct
shipments from any district in the country, the manufacturer filing
his bonds and completing his shipping papers in his own district.
I t provides, also, for the shipment of tax-paid tobacco by any person
who desires to^export, giving him an allowance of drawback for the'
taxes paid; a privilege which was not allowed under the previous law.
Persons liaving in their possession tax-paid tobacco, however badly
•damaged and unsalable, even to such a degree as to render it worthless
for sale or consumption, can, by exporting the same, always realize
therefrom an amount equal to the tax.
N E W 3 ) E FOR CANCELLATION OF STAMPS,
:IS

Since the passage of the act of June 6, 1872, which authorizes the
Commissioner of Internal Revenue to prescribe such instruments ibr
cancelling stamps for tobacco, &c., as he and the Secretary of the Treasury may approve, a steel die for the cancellation of registered tobacco
stamps has been prepared and furnished to every manufacturer of plug
and fine-cut chewing tobacco in the country at the expense of the G-overn'inent. This die is so constructed as to drive several portions of every
stamp into the wooden package and lodge them there, so that if the
stamp should be taken from the package it would be quite iinpossible to
supply the portions thus driven into the wood to be re-used on anyother
package; aud without the presence of the portions required to be driven
into the wood, the fraud would immediately be apparent.
The use of this die is made imperative by regulations, and its operation is very generally satisfactory. With an entire re-issue of tobacco
stamps, which has been made within the last year, printed on paper
which the Government has made for this special use, and printed with
•different colored impressions, so as to preclude the possibility of counterfeiting b}^ photography, with a more perfect cancellation effected with
the new die, I am not aware that any new or additional device or contrivance of a mechanical nature is required to perfect the machinery which
the Government is employing to collect the taxes on tobacco. Sorae additional device may be required to prevent the re-use of cigar-boxes from
which the stamps have not been removed or destroyed. Should any
such device hereafter be found which commends itself to the Government, there is authority given in the amended law for its adoption.
The present law relating to tobacco, though not claimed to be perfect,*
undoubtedly contains in its various provisions the practical results
obtained from ten yearsoof experience in internal revenue enactments.
Under this law the tobacco business is believed to be safe and prosperous, while equal and ample protection is given to all. For these
reasons I advise that there be. no additional legislation on this subject
at present.

The increase on banks and bankers is $983,988.; on gas, $258,596;
and on adhesive stamps, $834,581. The decrease in the receipts of income from individuals was $6,510,961. $1,785,172 were, however, offset
by the increase in the returns from corporations, so that the balance
-shows a total decrease of only $4,725,789. The large apparent falling
off in the receipts of income from individuals is chiefly owang to a difference in the rate of tax. Of the $14,434,950, exclusiye of the salarytax returned in 1871, $10,680,967, or nearly 75 per cent, were collected,
at 5 per cent, under act of March 2, 1867, while the balance for that
j e a r and the whole amount for 1872 were returned under act of July 14,
1870, at 2J per cent. Estimating 2^ per cent, on the taxable income of
the two years, there is a difference of only $677,781 in favor of 1871.
The collections on the annual and monthly lists of 1871 amounted to
-.$7,625,409. The receipts to date on the livSts of 1872 are slightly in
excess of eight millions of dollars.

The increase on spirits for the above period is $1,279,273; on tobacco^
$481,256; on fermented liquors, $468,331; on penalties, 37,789. Total
increase, $2,266,649. The falling off in receipts from banks and bankers
is due to provisions in the act of June 6, 1872, one of = which raises the
exemption of all sums deposited in savings banks, &c., in the name of
one person from $500 to $2,000, and the other exempts certain borrowed
capital.
/
The decrease in the receipts from income is owing to the expiration of
the tax by limitation with the assessment on incomes for the calendar
year 1871. The receipts from stamps for the first quarter of the present fiscal year were doubtless diminished in anticipation of the repeal,.
October 1, ultimo, of all general stamps except those on bank checks,'
drafts^ or orders. The receipts from sources formerly taxed, but now
exempt, being collections on old lists, are of course constantly decreasing.
The receipts for the last fiscal year exceeded my estimate by $6,770,->
946 73.
Important changes having been made in the law by act of June 6,
1872, touchiug:^spirits and tobacco, it is impossible to state with certainty at this early day how much the receipts for the current fiscal,
year will be affected by the modified provisions of the law. From the
best information now'obtainable, I estimate that they will not fall short
under ttPe present law of $110,000,000.
CONSOLIDATION OF DISTRICTS.

The act of June 6, 1872, required the reduction of the internal revenue districts in the United States to not exceeding eighty in number,
by uniting two or more districts into one; and also the reduction of the
minor officers in the service to as small a number as would be consistent with their limited duties. Immediately upon the passage of this
act general inquiry for information was made with a view to a prompt
compliance with the law. This inquiry early developed the opinion of
the leading officers in the.service, whose positions rendered them imX)artial in the matter, that to consolidate at once would largely interfere,
to the loss of the Government, with the collection of tax'es from assessments under repealed laws then in the hands of collectors. These collections could only be made with dispatch and certainty by those
acquainted with the special localities and circumstances of tax-payers.
To ^void a much greater loss by this untimely disturbance than could
possibly,be compensated by the consequent reduced expenditure, temporary delay was universally advised and finally determined upon. The
interim was used in pushing to a rapid close the collection of these balances. The result has justified the propriety of the delay. It was
estimated that by the act of June, 1872, .the whole amount of internal
revenue, exclusive of the balances under repealed laws, would be about
$110,000,000 per annum; whil6 the actual receipts fbr the first quarter
of the current fiscal year were at the rate of $135,400,000, showing
several millions of dollars in excess of the estimated receipts, and this
very considerably from taxes due under the repealed laws. To have
violently taken the lists containing these evidences of taxation out of
the hands of almost every two of three collectors and committed them
to the care of the remaining one would have introduced dangerous
delay in the receipts and would probably have caused large loss at last.
The collections have been large, and reflect great credit upon the oificers.
The act of June 6 reduced the duties of assessors and assistant assess

ors SO as to leave hnt three things, which could not be done with equal
propriety by the collectors and their deputies, two classes of officers remaining, both numerous and expensive, for a work that one class could as
well do. The three duties referred to are the assessment of the deficiency
taxes on distillers.^ an exceptional tax, only occasionally due, and the data
for assessing which are always at hand from daily reports in this office.
The majority of such assessments being reviewed and re-adjusted
under the present system, all of them could as readily be certified
from this Office to the collectors in the first instance. This would insure
uniformity of adjustment, a thing almost impossible where two or three
hundred unassociated minds are reading and interpreting law and regulations. Second, the S2:)ecM or license t^xes, which are collected as a
general rule but once (May) each year. The special tax certificates can
be issued in books, as are the spirit and tobacco stamps, and charged to
the collectors at their face value", crediting them (collectors) only with
cash or the unused certificates returned to this Office. This system works
, admirably in the matter of spirits and tobacco, and can be very easily
adapted to this other source of revenue. The third., and only remaining
duty with which the collectors might not be entirely intrusted, is the tax
on banks and bankers. This tax is payable but twice during each 3^ear,
and is the sole remaining tax on corporations. The tax upon corporations was at one period all collected directly by this Office, at a time when
it extended to railroad, insurance, canal and turnpike companies, in
addition to banks and bankers. The history of this class of taxation
shows that when so collected it was well collected, and the whole work
done by less than fifteen clerks, at an average salary not exceeding
$1,400 per annum each. If fifteen men could collect this tax when it
reached $13,000,000. per annum and embraced five species under the
class, all of them requiring monthly returns, it is not seen why a comparatively smaller number may not now manage one-fifth of the class,
and only yielding, as estimated for the current fiscal year, $800,000 in
all. I t further appeared that the exceptional labor could be done in this
Office without increasing its force materially, and thus enable the discharge of the entire body of assessing officers. Inasmuch as the plan
of reduction under the act of June 6 only ^vo^n^^d. absolutely fov t\iQ
reduction of some two-thirds of the principal officers, (460 in all,) and left
the reduction of the assistants (over 1,300) discretionary., it seemed to
be the better plan to ask Congress to make the larger reduction and
make that absolute. It is not an easy matter to put out of commission
a thousand or more officers. Experience has demonstrated chat nothing
short of unequivocal, inexorable law can surely do it. Discretion admits
of doubt and suggests delay.
In view of the great confusion and loss of revenue anticipated by a
general disturbance of the collecting offices; the simplicity and security
of a system which shall have.but one class of officers and those all
under bonds; the fact that nothing is left for the assessing class to do
that cannot be done either by the collectors or this Office; and that a *
saving of from one to two millions per annum of expense in salaries, &c.,
greater than would be effected under the act of June last, can safely be
anticipated, I have had prepared the outlines of a law which will give
effect to the above idea. This will be presented to the proper committees of the House of Eepresentatives and the Senate immediately upon
their assemblage in December proximo. If it is the judgment of Congress that this plan is preferable to that contemplated by the act of
June, I ask their early adoption of its provisions, that it maybe put into
operation completely by the 30th of June, 1873.

REPORT ON THE FINANCES.

In preparing the proposed plan I have consulted freely with the
leading officers now in the service, as well as with many of those
who heretofore have been prominent in it. Without an exception it
has met their hearty concurrence. They have commended if with a
view to its simplicity, concentration of responsibility, economy,|and the
just expectation of the nation that no more officers shall be retained
than are clearly necessary for the due enforcement of the law.| In this
recommendation I have not forgotten that the plan, if accepted by Congress, will bring personal inconvenience to many of the ablest and best
citizeiis of the country, now and for years in the service; and while I
express the tribute of this Office to their intelligent, faithful, and efficient discharge of important duties, I cannot but suppose that their
individual loss will be largely compensated in the consciousness of a
great public gain.

REPOET OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CIIRRENCY.







REPORT
COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.
TREASURY DEPARTMENT,
O F F I C E OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY,

Washington^ November 20, 1872.
SIR : I have the honor to submit for the consideration of Congress the
following report:
The national currency act provides that it shall be the duty of the
Comptroller of the Currency to report annually to Congress a summary
of the state and condition of all the national banks, exhibiting their resources and liabilities, as returned in different reports during the preceding year; that he shall suggest amendments to the act by which the
system may be improved, and present such other information with
reference to the affairs of the national banks as may, in his judgment, be
useful. The act also provides that the circulation shall be apportioned
to .associations in the States and Territories upon the basis of population, resources, business, and bank capital, and that a new apportion, ment of circulation not issued shall be made as soon as practicable,
based upon the census of 1870.
The national currency act became a law on the 25th of February, 1863,
and nearly ten years have therefore elapsed since the organization of
the system. During this period the agricultural products, the manufactures, and the internal commerce of the country have increased beyond any former precedent; and notwithstanding the enormous waste^
of a protracted war, the reduction of nearly two thousand millions of
dollars in the valuation qf property by the abolition of slavery, (more
than compensated, it is true, by the conversion of slaves.to freemen,) and
the collection of five thousand millions of dollars of taxes* imposed by the
JSTational and State Governments, the census returns of 1870 show an
increase o.f population for the ten years previous of more than seven
millions of persons, and an increase in the total wealth ofthe Union, of
nearly fourteen thousand millions of dollars.
Since the organization of the national banking system, two thousand
and sixty-one national banks have been organized; twenty-one of these
have failed, and ninety-six gone into voluntary liquidation, by a vote of
two-thirds of the shareholders, under section 42 ofthe act, leaving nineteen hundred and forty-four banks in existence on ]N'ovember 1, 1872.
*Tbe amount of national taxation, from 1863 to 1872, inclusive, is shown by the
official returns to be as follows: From customs, $1,573,460,608; from internal revenue,
$1,740,184,621 ; direct taxes, $12,699,598.
The taxation not national, for the year 1870, is stated in the census returns at
.$281,180,312. Assuming that the taxation -''not national" was the same amount annually for the decade, the total taxation collected would be $6,138,147,947..

DISTRIBUTION OF THB CURRENCY.

The act of June 3,1864, limited the issue of notes of circulation to
three hundred millions of dollars. The act of March 3,1865, provided
that one-half of this amount shall be apportioned according to '^'the
representative population," and the remainder among associations
formed in the different States, District of Columbia, and Territories,
'^having due regard to the existing banking capital resources and business of each State, District, and Territory.'^ The three hundred millions
of circulation authorized were not, however, distributed in accordance
with the act of March 3, 1865, already quoted. At the date of the passage of that act, only about ninety-nine millions of dollars had been
issued, but contemporary with its passage, an amendment to the internalrevenue law (act of June 30, 1864) was passed, providing " t h a t every
national banking association, State bank, or State banking association,
shall pay a tax of ten per centum on the amount of notes of any State
bank or State banking association, paid out by them after the 1st day
of Ju'ly, 1866." But a subsequent section also pro v ided that State banks

already organized, applying for authority to become national banks
before the 1st day of July following, should, receive such authority in
preference to new associations applying for the same. Under this provision the State associations, whose circulation had been taxed out of
existence, generally applied for authority to re-organize as national
banks, and the result was that the banks in the Eastern and Middle
States obtained a large excess of the amount to which they were entitled
in the apportionment.
To remedy this inequality, the act of July 12, 1870, was passed, providing for an additional issue of circulating notes, amounting to fifty-four
millions of dollars, to be distributed among those States having less
than their proportion, and requiring the cancellation monthly of three
per cent, certificates,* not less than the amount of circulation issued,
and a new apportionment of the increased circulation as soon as practicable, based upon the census of 1870.
This additional circulation has been distributed to associations already
organized, or in process of organization, in the following States and Territories :

The census of 1870 does not furnish the bankiug capital of the country
or suffii.cient data upon which an estimate can be made of the business
of each State or Territory. If the statistics of the agriculture, the manufactures, and the commerce" of every State of the Union were at hand, it
would be necessary to estimate the proportion to which each branch of

be obtained, and, after consultation with the Secretary of the Treasury,
it was decided that the distribution of the circulation, one-half upon
population and one-half upon the resources or wealth* of the country,
Avould comply with both the letter and the spirit of the act more nearly
than any estimate not derived from official data.

The final distribution of the fifty-four millions will still leave a deficiency of forty millions in different States of the Union, which will require to be filied before the proportion among the several States will be
equalized upon the basis of wealth and population. This deficiency
arises from the fact that while fifty-four millions of new circulation were
authorized, there was, at the time of the passage of the act, a deficiency
existing of ninety-four millions of dollars.
•
c Section 6 of the act of 'July 12, 1870, provides that, after the whole
fifty-four millions of circulation shall have been distributed, twenty-five



^

REPORT ON THE FINANCES.
millions additional shall be withdraAvn from banking associations organized in States having an excess, and distributed among States haAdng
less than their proportion, first, by reducing, in such States, the circulation|of all banks having more than one million of dollars, to that
amount; and, Secondly, by Avithdrawing from other banks having a circulation exceeding $300,000 their circulation pro rata in excess of that
amount. Under this act it will be the duty of the Comptroller, as soon
as the amount of circulation authorized shall have been issued, to make
requisition upon the banks indicated as prescribed. The twenty-five
millions of circulation would be withdrawn from the following cities and
States: Froui four banks in the city of New York, $5,018,000; from
thirty-six banks in the city of Boston, $11,403,000; from fifty-three
country banks of Massachusetts, $2,894,000; from fifteen banks in Connecticut, $2,997,000; from sixteen banks in the city of Providence,
$2,688,000. This would reduce the circulation of all the banks of Massachusetts, of Ehode Island, and of Connecticut to $300,000, without reference to the business of each. If the banks do not respond to these requir
sitions—and, as their notes are scattered throughout the Avhole country,
it will be impracticable for them to do so—the Comptroller is requirecl
at the end of one year to sell a sufficient amount of bonds and I'edeem
their notes as they come into the Treasury, until the whole amount
required shall have been returned. The notes Avill not come to the
Treasury for redemption unless first assorted h j the brokers and resold
by them to new national banks about to be organized. This will encourage the objectionable practice of authorizing new national banks
with circulation upon the condition that currency shall be purchased of
brokers in the maTket at from four to six per cent, premium—a practice
which should not be encouraged or authorized by law. The Comptroller therefore recommends the repeal of this section, and the authorization of the issue of five millions of dollars of additional circulation
annually for the next five years, to be distributed among the States
which are deficient.
This, with the fifty-four millions of circulation recently authorized,
will probably furnish all the additional currency required during the
next five years for the establishment of newnational banks in the States
which are deficient, and virtually inaugurate a free banking system.
The Comptroller also recommends that the law be so amended that
national banks may be organized in accordance with its proAisions,
Avithout circulation, upon the deposit of ten thousand doUars of United
States bonds with the Treasurer, instead of the deposit of one-third of
the capital paid up, as now required.
Three national gold-banks have been organized in California, under
the act of July 12, 1870, with an aggregate capital of $2,800,000, and
circulation $1,480,000, based upon United States bonds at the rate of 80
cents on the dollar. This currency is redeemable in coin, is more convenient than the coin itself in the transaction of business, and circulates
freely at par upon the Pacific coast. Other applications have been received tor the organization of similar institutions, and it is probable
that this kind of circulation will be considerably increased during the
coming year.
The folloAving table will exhibit the number of banks organized, the
number closed and closing', and the number in operation, with their
capital, amount of bonds on deposit, and circulation, in each State and
Territory, on the 1st day of 1:^0vember, 1872 :

The national banks, prior to May 1,1871, also paid to the Commissioner of Internal Eevenue a license or special tax of $2 on each $1,000
of capital, and an income-tax on net earnings to December 1, 1871.
The special or license tax from May 1, 1864, to May 1, 1871, amounted
to $5,322,688.43; the income-tax from March 1, 1869, to September 1,

The Comptroller, in his report for the year 1867, made careful statements of the taxes on national banks for the year 1866, from which it
appears that the banks, during that year, paid over sixteen millions of
TJnited States and State taxes, as follows:
To theUnited States Government
To the States

$8,069,938
7,949,451

The amount of taxes paid to the several States was derived from
specific returns of about fourteen hundred banks, the minimum rate
in each State being calculated for those banks which made no returns.
A similar statement for the year ending December 31, 1867, exhibits
the following results:
Amount of taxes paid to the United S t a t e s . . . Amount of taxes paid to the State authorities
Aggregate taxes paid

$9,525,607 31
8,813,126 92
18,338,734 23

Or 4J per cent, upon a capital of $422,804,666.
The aggregate State tax was believed to be considerably below the
actual amount paid. Assuming the amount of State taxes paid by the
national banks to be the same as that paid to the United States Government, (which is a moderate estimate,) we shall have the total taxes
paid by the national banks during these four years:

COMPTEOLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

The act of March 3, 1869, required specific returns to be made of the

" Complete statistics/in detail, ofthe capital, surplus, earnings, and divi' dends by States and cities, Avill be found on pa.ges 38-^44 of the appendix.
The national banks are required to furnish to this office not less than
five statements during each year of their assets and liabilities, and also
to make specific returns to the Treasurer, semi-annually, of their circulation, deposits, and the average amount of capital not invested in United
States bonds. The officers of the "CTnited States, and of the different
States, whose duty it is to collect taxes, have, therefore, at all times at
their command the data from which to ascertain the amount of taxes to
be collected; and it is believed that there is no other species of capital
upon which the tax can be so definitely assessed and so certainly collected as the tax upon the national banks of the country. There is no
doubt that in some instances, owing to large deposits in proportion to
capital, or to high rates of interest in the new States, large dividends
have been declared; but it will be seen from the above table that the
average earnings of the national banks, after making a proper allowance for bad debts, are not more than a fair remuneration upon capital.
The dividends declared do not probably exceed in the aggregate the
dividends under the old State systems, and are far less than the average
annual dividends of the English banks.'-^
I t is generally supposed that the circulation issued to the national

Total deposits and acceptances.

tPublic and other deposits, August 28.

The statistics of the Bank of England and its dividends were obtained from the
report of the Bank of England, published in- the London Bankers' Magazine for Octobei'j 1872. The usual dividends of this bank are 10 per cent. i)er annum, but the
amount has varied for some years past from 8 to 13 per cent.
Similar statistics of 142 of the banks in Great Britain and Ireland, with an aggregate capital of £61,361,531, (or, $298,622,027,) compiled from a table in the London
Economist of October 26, 1872, (pages 345-6,) give the average dividends for the four
half-years prior to July t, 1872, as, respectively, 5.71, 5.95, G.25, and 6.41 per cent.

banks is a source, of great profit; but if the premium upon bonds is
considered as an ultimate loss, the profit upon circulation does not
exceed 3 per cent, per annum. The chief source of profit in banking,
under this as under all other systeins, is from deposits, and upon this
branch of business an annual tax is already fixed by law. If the system has the advantage of circulation, it is also subject to many restrictions which are considered burdensome, but which give steadiness and
strength to the uioiiey transactions of the country. While the banks
should contribute their proportion to the revenues of the country, they
should not, under an imputation of extravagant profits, or an unfounded
IKejudice, be taxed to a greater degree than other corporations which
are even less important to its prosperity.
The consolidation of the bank capital of the country in a sound and
conservative system, with proper safeguards and restrictions, is of much
greater importance than a penny-wise and pound-foolish imx)osition of
excessive taxation, which will have a tendency to drive those banks
that are not over-conscientious out of the system, with the purpose of
evading all taxation whatever.
'
RESERVE.

A good deal of discussion has arisen during the recent stringency in
the inoney market in the city of l^ew York in reference to the provisions of the national currency act, requiring a reserve upon the liabilities of national bauks.
The act requires that tbe country banks- shall hold an amount of reserve equal to fifteen per cent, of the entire amount of their deposits
and circulation, three-fitths of which reserve may be on deposit with
national banks which are their agents in redeinption cities. The national banks in the redemption cities must hold a reserve of twenty-five
per cent., one-half of which may be on deposit wdth national banks in
New York City.
The reserves of the ninete,en hundred national banks located elsewhere
than in the cit}^ of New'York are held to a great extent in that city.
For most of the time during the past year, an amount equal to more
than one-fifth of the capital of all these national banks has been held
on deposit by the national banks of the city of New York to the credit
of their correspondents. In many cases these credits amount to twice
the capital of the bank wdth which they are deposited ; in other cases.
the amount of deposits is three, four, and even ^YQ times the capital,
w^hich amount has been attracted thither largely by the payment of interest on deposits. The failure of one of these New York City banks
in a time of monetary stringency would embarrass, if not ruin, man^^
banks in the redemption cities, and, in turn, the country correspondents
of these banks would suffer from the imprudence of the New^ York bank^
which would be responsible for wide-spread disaster.,^ It is clear that a
bank having such excessive liabilities has no right, even if''there were
no law, to increase its loans to such an unreasonable' extent as to lead
to embarrassment if unexpectedly called upon for the reserves of its
correspondents. A provision of law prohibiting banks from extending
their loans beyond three times their (».apital would seem to be not
unreasonable, but such a provision would be much more restrictive than
the present requirements of the law in reference to reserve.
The State laws of Massachusetts and Louisiana, which were in most
respects models of a sound system of bank legislation, required an ample
leserve to be kept on hand. The laws of the State of New York bad



84

REPORT ON THE FINANCES.

no such restriction. The country banks of that State were, however,
required to redeem, their notes in the city of New York, in specie^ and
an examination of their returns will show that wbile the country banks
usually held but a very small proportion (about 2J per cent.): of circulation and deposits in their vaults, they were forced to keep on deposit
with their city correspondents nearly as large a proportion of reserve as
under the national system. An examination of the weekly returns made
to the clearing-house in New York City wall show that the State banks
of established reputation in times of monetary stringency hold a sufficient
reserve wdthout such provision of law: while the larger proportion of
banks, not included in the national system, are continually below a judicious limit. The truth is that the strong and well-managed banks do
not need any law in reference to reserve, and do not, therefore, ask for
a change of legislation in this respect. The weak banks and those already too largely extended wish to be free from all restrictions. It is the
constant tendenc3' of such banks to increase their liabilities. In times of
excessive stringency loans ^re not made by such associations to businessmen upon commercial paper, but to dealers in speculative securities upon
short time at high rates of interest; and an increase of call-loans beyond the proper limit is more likely to afford facilities for unwarrantable
stock speculations than relief to legitimate business transactions. The
laAV is intended as a wholesome restriction upon national banks, organized
in almost every city and village in the Union. Next to the absolute
security provided for the crumpled bits of paper in the pockets of every
citizen, no provision of the act has done so much to give character and
standing to the national banking system as the assurance to the thousands of depositors throughout the country (who, after all, are the chief
source of profit to every bank) that a reserve, equivalent to such a proportion of the liabilities of every bank as the experience of years and
the fluctuations of business have shown to be necessary, will always be
kept on hand to answer the extraordinary and unexpected calls of
creditors.
The variations in tbe liabilities requiring reserve in the banks of the
city of New York are very great. The banks outside of New Yorky
during the dull season, send their surplus means to that city fbr deposit
upon interest, to await the revival of business. The banks in the city ^
of New York,,at such periods of the year, have no legitimate outlet for'
these funds, and axe therefore threatened with loss. The stock l^oardi
takes advantage of this condition^ of affairs, speculation is stimulated
by the cheapness of raonc}^, and a market is found for the idle funds
upon doubtful collaterals, and the result is seen in the increased transactions at the clearing-house, which, during the past year, Exceeded
thirty-two thousand millions of dollars, or an average of more than one
hundred millions of dollars daily—npt one-half of which was the result
of legitimate biisiness; the total amount of transactions being greater
thaj;i that of the bankers' clearing-house of the city of London. The
evil arises largely from the payment, by the banks, of interest on depos' its—an old-established custom Avhich cannot easily be changed by legislation. A considerable portion of these deposits w^ould remain at home
if they could be used at a low rate of interest, and made available at
any time upon the return of the season of active business. No sure investment of this kind is, however, open to the country banks; and the
universal custom is to send forward the useless dollars from vaults
coniparatively insecure to their correspondents in the city, where they
are supposed to be safer, and at the same time earning dividends for
sharehohlers. A Government issue bearing alow rate of interest to be



COMPTEOLLER OF THE CU.RRENCY.

eoimted as a certain proportion of the reserve, and an increase of the
amount which the country banks are required to keep onhand, is the pro:
per remedy fbr such a state of things.
Such an issue need not
result in inflation, for the currency invested would be in the possession
of the Government. If the currency is held, the objection is the loss of
interest to the Government; but this loss would be no more than a just
rebate upon the six millions of dollars of taxation annuallypaidby the
banks to the Government, at a time when almost every kind of internal
taxation has been discontinued. Such a reduction of taxation should not
be grudgingly made^ if the result shall be to giv^ elasticity to the currency, to strengthen and steady the money market, to give additional
security to seven hundred millions of dollars belonging to depositors
by retaining in the vaults of the banks a large amount of funds for
legitimate business purposes, which would otherwise be thrown upon
the stock board to unsettle values throughout the country, and alternately increase and depress the price of every commodity.
For the information of those w^ho do not believe that the banks usually
kold the requisite amount of reserve, we have prepared tables shov/ing
that for the last HXQ years, at from four to .five different periods of the
year, the banks organized in every State, and in the principal cities of
the Union, have been found | o hold, in almost every instance, a considerable amouut beyond the requirements of law.

REPORT ON THE FINANCES.

A law W'hich is so universally observed as to have become a rule wdtli
all the cautiously-managed banks of the country should not be repealed
without full consideration. Carefully-prepared tables giving further
information regarding the reserves of the National Banks will be found
in the appendix to this report.
THE CHICAGO FIRE.
The great fire in Chicago, of October 8 to 11, 1871, should be mentioned among the noteworthy events of the year. The buildings occupied by the eighteen national banks in that city were all totally
destroyed in the general conflagration, except one, and that one was
rendered untenantable for some weeks.
The amount of bills receivable held by these banks at tha,t tirne w^as
more^ than twenty-one millions of dollars, and the indebtedness to correspondents nearly nine millions, and to individual depositors about
seventeen millions. For a time it was thought that they were so
seriously crippled that they would be unable to resume business, and it
w^as proposed to open their doors with ihe offer of ..payment by installments to their creditors. The contents of their vaults wercj however,
rescued in good condition, and finally w^ise and prudent counsels prevailed, owing largely to the presence and advice of my predecessor.
Bight days after the conflagration the banks obtained new offices in
dwelling-houses distant from their former locations, and opened for the
transaction of business. Instead of balances being largely drawn upon,
deposits flowed in freely from dealers and correspondents, and at the
close of the first,day^s business the xeceipts were found to be consider-ably larger than the disbursements. It was soon ascert?dned that the
immense losses anticipated upon bills receivable w^ould not be experienced, and confidence was restored. The total loss arising from the
fire on discounted piaper is estimated at about six hundred thousand
dollars, and the loss from the destruction of bank-buildings, furniture,
and fixtures, at about one hundred and seventy-six thousand dollars.
The banks, at the time of this disaster, had accumulated a surplus fund
exceeding one-fourth of their aggregate capital, and had at their command a reserve equal to more than thirty per cent, of their liabilities,
and consequently were able to resume business without embarrassment.
The wisdom pf the sections of the law^ requiring an accumulation of surplus and the holding of reserve could not be better illustrated.
By reference to the abstract of the condition of the national banks
of the city of Chicago, on page 38 of this volume, evidence will be
found of the steady increase of busiuess in these banks during the past
year.*
* Since the above paragrapli was wiittea a great conflagration has taken place
in Boston, resnlting in the destruction of from seventy to eighty miUions of property.
The facts pertaining to the Boston banks were in many respects similar to those of
Chicago. Their aggregate capital was $48,900,000; their surplns, §11,440,000; their
bills receivable, $83,327,000; their deposits, $40,841,000; and their reserve, according to
the latest oflQcial Reports, about twenty-live per cent, of their liabilities. The buildings of
seven national banks, ont of forty-nine transactiiig^business in the city, were destroyed
by the fire, but their casli assets were subsequently recovered. On the second day after
tbe commencement of the fire all the banks but one were represented at the clearinghouse, and on the fourth day all of them had resumed business. Tbe aggregate loss
upon bills receivable is estiraated at from two and a half to tliree millions of dollars.
The losses of the banks are chargeable to snrplus, which was in excess of the requirements of the law, and it is not supposed that the regular dividends to shareholders will
be materially reduced by the disaster.




COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.
USURY.

, 89 .
-

Charges have been made against several national banks during the
past year for receiving usurious rates of interest. These complaints
have been made not on]j against banks in the South and "\¥est, where
high rates of interest prevail, but also against banks organized in other
States, where the usurious rate charged was but slightly in excess of
the rate of six per cent.,' allowed by law. Section 30 of the act provides that when the amount of interest charged is greater than the rate
authorized by State law, twice the interest paid may be recovered by
the person paying the same; wiiile section 53 provides that the franchises of an association may be forfeited if the directors of a bank
knowingly violate the provisions of the act. The original national currency act of February 11, 1863, provided as a penalty for usury the forfeiture of the debt, and section 50 of the same act also subjected the
rights, privileges, and franchises of an association to forfeiture for will-,
ful violations of the act. It may be doubted, therefore, whether Congress
intended to impose a specific penalty involving the loss of the whole
debt, and then, in addition, subject the same bank to a forfeiture of
charter in a subsequent section, wdiich is applicable to other violations
of law^. - I am informed by gentlemen who participated in. the framing
of the present national currency act that the forfeiture of twice the
amount of interest was regarded as" a sufficient penalty for such violations of law, and, at the same time, a suificient protection to borroAvers.
^ These statements are confirmed by the act of April 22, 1870, ^'An act
to amend the usury laws of the Dis'trict.of Columbia,'' which provides
^^that if any person or corporation in this District shall contract to receive a greater rate of interest than ten per cent, upon any contract in
writing, or six per cent, upon any verbal contract, such person or corporation shall forfeit the whole of said interest so contracted to be received, and shall be entitled only to recover the principal sum due to
such person or corporation.'' It will be observed that the forfeiture of
the interest is the only penalty prescribed by Congress nearly six years
after the passage of the national currency act for corporations and individuals in the District of Columbia.
' The rates of interest fixed by State laws are not governed by any sound
economical or business principles. In three of the New England States*
usury laws are abolished, while in the remainder the rate has remained
for half a century at a uniform standard, which is less than the present
rate ofthe Bank of Bngiand. In Minnesota and Virginia,, the rate is
limited to twelve per cent.; in Illinois, Wisconsin, and Missouri, to ten
per cent.; in Alabama and Ohio, to eight per cent., Avhile in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Kentucky, the rate is fixed at six per cent. In New
York, the taking of an excess beyond the limit of seven per cent, forfeits
the whole debt, and subjects the creditor to fine and imprisonment. It
would be diflicult to give any good reason why the rate of interest should
be limited to ten per, cent, in the city of Washington, to six per cent, in
the neighboring cities of Philadelphia, Baltimore, Wilmington, and
Ealeigh, and to twelve per cent, across the Potomac, in Alexandria, and
in the capital of Virginia. Many of the States have practically repealed
their usury laws, while other neighboring States retain upon their statutebooks laws wliich are so continually evaded that they haye become
obsolete. Savings-banks chartered by Congress, savings-banks, trust*The interest laws of Rhode Island, Massachnsetts, and Connecticut will be found in

REPORT ON T H E FINANCES.

companies, and safe-deposit companies authorized by the legislatures of
almost eveiy State of the Union, as well as private bankers, offer fbr
interest on deposits rates nearly equal, aiid sometimes exceeding the
ruling rates allowed by law; and under such circumstances it is difficult
to control by legislation the rates of the national banks.
Self-protection stimulates even the most conservative banks to control
their own business and retain the accounts of dealers of long standing.
The rates of interest charged must correspond in some degree to the
supply of monc}^ and to the demand. If high rates are paid for deposits, it is with the expectation that the borrower will pay a rate correspondingly high. Hence loans are made to those dealers who will leave
the largest proportion of the amount borrowed wdth the bank for the
longest period in the guise of deposits. Banks in New York charge
seven per cent., in Philadelphia and Baltimore, six per cent.; but their
loans are made chiefly to dealers whose average accounts show balances
continually on hand equal to one-eiglith or one-fourth of the amount
borrowed; w-hile the banks in the South and the West not unfrequently
charge the ruling rate without xegard to the account of the customer.
The expedients for violating tne usury laws are so numerous that it
may well be doubted whether it would not be better for all parties to
allow the rate charged to be regulated by the state of the money market. Under existing laws, in an easy money inarket, the rate not unfrequently falls below that prescribed by law. If money is scarce, the
rate is nominally wdthin the limit, but really regulated in accordance
wdth a previous understanding between borrower and lender.
There are no usury laws in Great Britain, or in the other commerciifl
European states; and the commonwealth of Massachusetts, one of the
most prosperous and enlightened States of the Union, has recently abolished'^ such laws; and it will be found, b}^ reference to the table on
page 16, that the earnings of the banks in that State for the four years
since the passage of the act, have been even less than in many of the
Eastern, Middle, and Southern States, where the rate is fixed at six per
cent.
Mr. McCulloch, late Secretary of the Treasury, in his first report, as
Comptroller of the Currency, recommended a uniform rate of interest,
and expressed the opinion that Congress possessed the power to enact
such a law, under the constitutional provision of regulating commerce
among the several States. Congress alone has the power to coin
money and regulate the value thereof; and if it alone has authority to
issue and authenticate the paper currency of the country, there would
seem to be no good reason why it should not also provide fbr its tree
circulation, which is now impeded by the ever-changing statutes of
forty different legislatures.
The penalty for usuiy should at least be defined, and until this is done
the Comptroller will not feel himself called upon to institute proceed• ings for forfeiture of the charter of a bank for usurious transactions,
when it is evident that the busiriess of the association is conducted
legitimately and safely in other respects.
SAVIN G-S-BANKS.

The acjt of June 17, 1870, provides that savings-banks may be organized within the District of Columbia, under the provisions of section 4
of the act ''to provide for the creation of corporations in the District
.



'

* Act of' March 6, 1867.

of Columbia by general law;" and a subsequent act exempts trom taxation the deposits of savings-banks in amounts less than $2,000. It is
claimed that, under this legislation, savings-banks, with capital paid
up in full or in part, may be established in the District of Columbia,
to be conducted for the benefit of the shareholders. The legislatures of
many of the States have authorized the establishment of similar institutions, which, under the act of Congress, are exempt from taxation on
deposits, while these identical deposits, if placed to the credit of savingsbanks in a national bank, as is frequently the case, are subject to a tax
of one-half per cent, per annum. It is evident that Congress intended
to discriminate in favor of those institutions which are organized for
the purpose of receiving and investing savings for the benefit of depositors, and not of shareholders.
The official reports of the savings-banks in New England show^ the
deposits at the close of the year 1871 to have been $312,333,479, or
more than three times the amount of the aggregate deposits in the
national banks. The deposits in the savings-banks of the State of
New York, at the same date, w^ere $267,905,866, a sum also considerably
in excess of the deposits of the national banks in that state. A large
portion of these are not properly savings-deposits. Savings-banks
in some portions of New England, New York, and Pennsylvania, as
well as other States, have recently become formidable competitors of
the national banks by offering much larger rates of interest for deposits
than is usual in A ell-managed banks.
V
The proper functions ot savings-banks are to make safe and judicious
investments of the funds intrusted to them, and at specified times to
divide the earnings among the depositors; but for the purpose of
attracting the deposits of business men and others, who would otherwise do business with regularly organized banking institutions, the
custom prevails, to a large extent, of offering high rates of interest
for deposits before dividends have been earned. The result is that
savings-deposits are, to a considerable extent, endangered by investments in street-paper, in loans to the managers of such institutions,
and in speculative securities.
The savings-banks are among the most important business institutions of the copntry, and they should be fostered and maintained; but
at the same time they should be restricted to a legitimate savings-bank
business, and not allowed to encourage violations of usury laws nor to
be controlled by the personal interests of shareholders, managers, or
trustees. Frequent publications of reports should be required and their
affairs subjected to rigid scrutiny from time to time by competent examiners. Special charters, wdth special privileges for savings-banks and
trust companies, should not be granted, but all such institutions should
be organized under general laws. The passage of such a law for the
District of Columbia, Avith judicious pro\dsions, would be productiA^e of
beneficial results and Avould aflbrd an example, not only for those States
Avhich have no enactments of this kind, but also for the older States,
Avhose present savings-bank laws are liable to great abuses.
LOCKING- U P OF G-REENBACKS.

The act of February 19, 1869, provides ^'that no national banking association shall hereafter offer or receive United States notes
or national bank notes as security, or as. collateral security, for
any loan of money, or for a consideration shall agree to withhold



'92

REPORT ON THE FINANCES.

the same from use, or shall ofler or receiA'e the custod}' or promise of custody of such notes as security, or as collateral security
or consideration, for any loan of money."
On the 5th of April last the Comptroller was advised that a bank in
the city of New^ York, Avith a capital of $1,000,000, and Avhose
average exchanges at the clearing-house did not exceed $300,000, Avas
that morning creditor at the clearing-house for $4,770,000. As it Avas
'evident that this large credit w^as not the result of legitimate business,
the examiner Avas directed to make an examination of the bank, which
Avas immediately done, in connection Avith a member of the clearinghouse committee. F r o m t h e examination, Avhich was thoroughly and
carefully conducted, it appeared that deposits had been made iii that
bank, by one individual, upon the morning of April 5, to the amount
of $4,100,000, the whole of Avhich Avas drawn put upon the same day,
upon the-checks of the depositor, in legal-tender notes. The president
of the bank denied that the bank had any interest in these transactions, and there Avas no evidence of any loan, or of adA^ances in any
shape, upon these deposits. These transactions were the subject, subsequently, of an investigation by the bank committee of the House of
Eepresentatives, and, although it was clear that the spirit of the law
had been violated, no evidence could be obtained to Ava-xrant, the commencement of a suit for the recovery, of the penalty prescribed in the
act referred to. The investigation undoubtedly had the effect to preA^ent the repetition of similar transactions; no offenses of this kind, on
the part of any national bank, haAdng since been brought to the attention of the Comptroller.
.
Tlie New York clearing-house association subsequently passed a resolution declaring ' ' t h a t the clearing-house committee be and is hereby
directed, whenever it appears, in its judgment, that legal-tender notes
have been wdthdrawnfrom use through the agency of any bank, member of the association, to make an immediate examination of the bank
in question, and should there appear to be complicity on the part of
the bank or its officials, to suspend said bank from the clearing-house
until action of the association shall be taken thereon."
The AvithdraW'-al of currency for illegitimate purposes has, however,
^ince been accomplished without the assistance of the banks.
The rigid enforcement ofthe resolution ofthe clearing-house will prevent complicity on the part of the banks in such transactions; and if the
New York stock-board and the leading banking-houses Avill unite Avith
the clearinghouse, and refuse to transact business Avdth unscrupulous
men, who do not hesitate to embarrass legitimate business for the purpose
of increasing or diminishing the A'alues of stocks or bonds in which they
are temporarily interested, they can do more to prevent such operations
than any congressional enactment.
INSOLVENT BANKS.

Twenty-one national banks, organized in elcA^en different States,
with an aggregate capital of $4,236,100, have failed since the organization of the system in 1863. The total circulation of these banks ^vas
$2,942,793, of which $2,441,430 has been redeemed in full, leaving a
balance still outstanding of $501,363, Avhich will also be redeemed, upon
presentation to the Treasurer of the United States, from the avails of
United States bonds held as security for that purpose. Of these banks,
fiA=^e have been finally closed, (two during the past year,) having paid
dividends to their creditors, as follows :

REPORT ON THE FINANCES.

The aggregate amount of claim.s proved against the seA^euteen national
banks Avhich have failed, (excluding the four banks which Av^ere Government depositories,) is $5,205,068; the aA^erage dividends, 69'J per cent.; the
' additional dividends to be declared a,re estimated a t 14^^^5-per cent.; making, in all, dividends in favor of creditors of 84^^^ per cent.,Vhich Avould
. leave an aA^erage deficiency of I^J-Q per cent, to be collected of share-,
holders, as provided in section 50 of the act.
A final dividend in .favor of the Farmers and Citizens' National
Bank, of Brooklyn, AAdll be made during'the present year, of about four
per cent., making, in all, dividends from the assets of ninety-six per cent.
A final dividend of about forty per cent, in favor of the creditors of the
National Unadilla Bank is delayed by a claim in litigation for the A^alue
of the bonds deposited as security for circulation in excess of the amount
required to redeem its circulating notes, which will probably go to the
Supreme Court for final adjudication. An assessment has been made
upon the shareholders ofthe National Bank of Bethel, of 15^- per cent.,
Avhich, if collected, Avill pay the creditors in full, Avithout interest, up to
the date of the appointment of the receiver. A diAddend of more than
thirty per cent. AA^II also soon be declared in faA^or of the creditors of the
First National Bank of Nevada. The afiairs of the Eighth National
Bank of New- York, and of the First NationalBank of Eockford, Illinois,
are involved in litigation, and the date of the final closing of their affairs
ds uncertain.
f' The Yenango National Bank of Franklin, Pennsylvania; the Mer^
ehants' National Bank of Washington, District of Columbia; the
First National Banlv of Selma, Alabama, and the First National Bank
of NeAv Orleans, AA^ere United States depositories. The final dividend
in faA^or of the creditors of the First National Bank of Yicksburg has
been unexpectedly delayed by the recent presentation of a claim of the
United States for money alleged to have been illegally deposited by the
collector of internal revenue of that district, in the year 18SS. Since
that time no losses have occurred to the Government by deposits made
in the national banks, although many millions of dollars haA^e been continually on deposit A\dth banks wdiich are designated as depositories.
The three first-named banks, at the time of their failure, had a large
amount of GoA^ernment funds on deposit.
The fifth section of the act of March 3, 1797, provides ^' that when any
revenue officer or other person hereafter becoming indebted to the United
States, by bond orotherwise, shall become insolvent'; or Avhere the estate
of any deceased debtor, in the hands of ex:ecutors or administrators, shall
be insufficient to pay all the debts due from the deceased, the del?t due to
the United States shall be first satisfied; and the priority hereby established shall be deemed to extend as Avell to cases in which a debtor, not .
having sufficient property to pay all his debts, shall make a voluntary
assignment thereof, or in Avhich the estate and effects of an absconding,
concealed, or absent debtor shall be attached by process of law, as to
cases in w^hich an act of legal bankruptcy shall be committed."
The Treasurer of the United States claims, under this act, that all
deposits in these banks at the time of suspension, belonging to the
United States, Avhether deposited to its credit directly, or to the credit
of its disbursing officers, with interest thereon from the date of the
failure of the bank, are entitled to priority of payment.
In the case of the First National Bank of New Orleans, other questions have arisen. At the date of its suspension the bank was in charge
of officers ofthe Government, who were also engaged iuothe^ settlement
of the accounts of a defaulting ex-assistant treasurer of the United



COMPTROLLER OF TPfE CURRENCY.

95

States. The nominal balance to the personal credit of this individual
upon the liiooks of the bank Avas $315,779.10, and a certified check for this
amouiit Avas taken from him, and about $94,000 collected upon it. The
GoA^ernment holds this check, and claims that the balance uncollected
shall have priority in payment, the same as if that amount had been
on deposit to the credit of the United States. The creditors of the bank,
on the other hand, claim that, at the time of the suspension, the bank
held legal offsets, and that there Avas really no balance due upon^ the
check held by the Government. The receiver concurs in this opinion,
andif the claim should be presented to him in the usual Avay for settlement, it Avould be disallowed.
Unsuccessful attempts have been made to obtain affinal decision in
the Supreme Court of the United States upon these questions, owing,
in part, as is believed, to defects in the present'act. A large amount of.
funds has been on deposit Avith the Treasurer for the last three years,
Avhich Avill be distributed among the creditors as soon as a decision of
the court can be obtained upon these points.
Section 50 of the national currency act provides that the Comptroller
shall make a ratable dividend upon all claims Avhich may be proved to
his satisfaction or adjudicated in a court of competent jurisdiction; and
this is the only existing provision in reference to the method of procedure in the proving of claims against an insoh^ent bank. The laAv
should be so amended as to define the duties of the Comptroller and of
the receiver in proving claims and in prescribing the mode and-manner
of referring conflicting interests to tfie x)roper tribunal for final arbitrament. A bill for this purpose Avas introduced into the last Congress,
reported by the Bank Committee, and referred to the Judiciary Committee of tiie House of Eepresentatives. The-passage of this bill will
facilitate the settlement of the affairs of these l3anks, and simplif}^ the
method of procedure in all cases of insoh^ent banks.
An amendment is also suggested giving authority for the return of the
assets 'of an insolvent bank to an agent of the shareholders upon
their unanimous request, after full payment shall have been made to
the creditors of the bank.
Where dividends are delayed by reason of protracted litigation, proAdsion should also be made for the investment of the funds on deposit
Avith the Treasurer in interest-bearing securities.
SURPLUS AND SPECIE.

The laAV requires that every national bank shall carry one-tenth part
of its profits to surplus-fund account before the declaration of a dividend,
until the same shall amount to 20 per cent, of its capital stock. This
wise provision has been generally observed, and the returns show that the
banks novi^haA^ea surplus of more than one hundred millions of dollars,
and considerably more than one-fifth of their capital in surplus account.
The act also limits the liabilities of any association, person, company,^
or corporation, for money borroAved, to one-tenth ofthe capital stock paid
in. The Comptroller recommends that this limit be extended to onetenth of the capital ancl surplus, which will have a tendency to increase
the surplus fund, beyond the limit required by the law.
Banks have hitherto been in the habit of reporting, as specie, checks
payable in coin. The result is to give an erroneous aggregate of the
amount of coin held by the banks, the same amount being reported by
the bank holding the coin and the bank holding the check. In the
present statement, and in all future statements, the item of coin will include only actual coin and United States coin certificates Avhich are
payable on demand a t t h e Treasury.

SIIINPLASTERS.

The State of Alabama has issued for some years past, in the form^
and similitude of bank notes, of five different denominations, certificates^
which read as follows :
" The State of Alabama: Eeceivable as ^ve dollars in payment of all
dues to the State. Montgomery, May 1, 1867.
(Signed)
— Governor.
(Signed)
—•.
Comptroller of Fublic Accourits.^^
On the reverse :
^' Eeceivable in payment of taxes and all dues to the State. Issued
under the provisions of the act entitled ' An act to provide for the
issue of certificates or receipts by the State,' approA^d February 19,
1867. The credit and faith of the State of Alabama are pledged for
the redemption of this certificate or receipt, as provided fbr in such
act."
A circular Avas also issued by the governor of Alabama, on July
24, 1867, and is still in circulation, Avhich states that an opinion ha's<
been obtained from the Attorney-Gen eral of the United States t h a t
such receipts or certificates are not subject to the tax of ten per cent,
imposed upon the notes of State banks by the act of March 3, 1865, and recommending the co-operation of banks and bankers in gi\dng
circulation to the issues referred to. The Constitution of the United
States proAddes that no State shall emit bills of credit, and it has been
held by the Supreme Court of the United States, in a famous case,^^




* Briscoe vs. Bank of Iventucky, 11 Pet.. 257.

*

COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

that a note of circulation '' issued by a State, involving the faith of the
State, and designed to circulate as money on the credit of the State, in
tlie ordinary course of business," is a bill of credit. Other decisions of
the Supreme Court hold " t h a t certificates issued by a State in sums
not exceeding ten dollars nor less than fifty cents, receivable in payment of taxes, the faith and credit of the State being pledged for their
redemption, are bills of credit within the prohibition of the Constitution."*
It is clear, therefore, that such certificates are bills of credit,.and prohibited by the Constitution. Savings-banks, railroad, municipal, and
other corporations in the States of Florida, Georgia; and other Southern
States have folloAved the example of the State of Alabama, and ha\^e issued,
and are still issuing, a large amount of similar circulation, some in the
form of receipts and certificates, and others in the form of railroad tickets,
but all issued in the form and similitude of bank notes, and intended to
circulate as money. There is ho law in existence to prevent the circulation, and no legislative provision for the enforcement of the constitu- ,
tional prohibition of such issues. The act of July 17, 1862, makes it
a penal offense " to make, issue, circulate, or pay any note, check,
rnemorandum, token, or other obligation for a less sum than one dollar,
intended to circulate as money, or be received or used in lieu of lawful
money." It is recommended that this act be so amended as to prohibit,
absolutely, the issue of such circulation, and thus preA'Cnf; great ultimate loss to the people, among Avhom such notes are now obtaining
extensiA^e credit.
A fA national banks have gone into liquidation and reorganized as
cV
State banks,' retaining their national title. State savings-banks and
priA'ate companies have also assumed the title of " national." These
corporations and companies erect large signs OA^er their doors, issue
conspicuous adA^ertisements, and obtain -recognition in the counterfeit
detectors among lists of national banks, thus transacting business under
false colors, Avliich, of itself, should be sufficient to put all business men
upon their guard. Such abuses should, however, be prohibited, and
the Comptroller recommends the passage .of an act prohibiting the use
of the w^ord t^ national" as a title for banks other than those organized
under the national currency act.
He also recoinmends that all officers of nationaL banks, and all Government depositaries, be required to stamp the word "counterfeit" or
"illegal" upon all counterfeit and unauthorized issues presented at their
counters.
BANKS OF CIRCULATION.

' The national currency act is, to a certain extent, deficient in a provision fbr ihe prompt closing up of national banks pursuing an illegitimate business. These ba,nks are of two classes. One class organize or
attempt to organize and pay up their capital stock with the notes of
vshareholdiers instead of cash capital, as required by laAV. A few such
^ cases haA-e been forced into liquidation by withholding the issue of circulation, and in one instance the Solicitor has been requested to bring a
suit for the forfeiture of charter for Avillful violation of law, as provideci
in section 53 ofthe a c t In all similar cases hereafter proceedings will
be commenced for a like purpose. In other cases, banks which have
lost a large portion of their capital refuse.to go into liquidation, transacting no business, but in other respects conform to the requirements of
* Craig i>s. Mi6soui:i, 4 P e t , 410; Byrne vs. Missouri, 8 Pet., 40.

REPORT ON THE FINANCES.

the law, for the purpose of receiving fhe interest ui)on their bonds. The
stockholders of these banks, in some instances, have the means to
restore the capital, but refuse ; in others, a portion of the shareholders
desire to pursue a legitimate business, but another portion refuse to
respond to assessments. The Comptroller respectfully recommends
that in these cases authority be given to withhold the interest upon the
bonds, and to commence proceedings for the forfeiture of charter, and
that ia penalty be imposed. These cases are not numerous, but a remedy
is needed to terminate the existence of such associations, and no penalty
is too severe for this evasion of the law. With proper legislation, and
the co-operation of banks doing a legitimate business, an example may
be made of illegitimate institutions, AvhichAvill prevent the organization
of banks without the full amount of capital paid up in cash, as required
by law.
^ ^
EXAMINATIONS.

It is the intention ofthe Coinxitroller.that CA'Cry national bank shall
be thoroughly examined once a year by a competent bank exaininer.
Every director and shareholder is personally interested in these examinations, if properly conducted. No Avell-tnanaged bank Avill object to a
confidential scrutiny of its affairs, but will Avelcome at all times, as is
generally the case, a competent and courteous agent of the Department. Many valuable suggestions may be obtained from the experience
of an intelligent examiner, and, in not a foAv instances, banks have been
saved from ruin by timely interference in the correction of abuses. In
some instances information is received at this office of Adolations of law
which call for special'examinations, but Avhich cannot be made because
there is ne nieans of paying the expense.of conducting such examinations. If the'bank is found in fault, it Avill respond to an assessment; if
not, it should not be subjected to an expense not authorized by law.
The Comptroller, therefore, respectfully asks for an appropriation of
$3,000, in order that he may at all times be free to pursue such inquiries
a^ he shall consider expedient for the protection of the creditors of such
associations. Prompt action in cases of this kind is A^ery desirable, and
theexi)ense incurred is trifling when compared with the public interests
in vol A'ed.
MUTILATED CURRENCY.
, Section 24 of the act provides that the worn-out and mutilated circulating notes of the national banks " shall be burned to ashes in the
presence of fbur persons, one to be appointed by the Secretary of the
Treasury, one by the Comptroller of the Currency, one by the Treasurer
of the United States, and one by the association, under such regulations
as the Secretary of the Treasury may prescribe." From the organization of the system in 1863 to November 1, 1872, $86,695,305,^more than
one-fourth of the Avhole amount issued, has been returned to this office
for destruction, as follows:
Previous to November 1,1865
Duriug the year euded October 31, 1866
Duriug the year euded October 31, 1867
Duriug the year euded October 31, 1868

often as once in ten years. An additional force will be required for the
careful performance of this duty.
No effort will be spared by the Comptroller to have the provision of
the laAV in reference to the burning of mutilated notes and the prompt
issue of new notes in their place strictly executed; and, the national
banks of the country are urged to send forward such notes as frequently
a« possible, in order that the currency of the country may be kept in
the best possible condition. The officers and depositaries of the United
States can render efficient service in purifying the currency, by sorting
out all mutilated notes of the national banks and presenting the same
to their agents in New York City and elsewhere, for redemi)tion.
THE

OFFICE.

The force of this office consists of the Deputy Comptroller, fifty-six
male clerks, and twenty-eight female clerks. The work of the office is
continually increasing. More than twelve thousand reports of national
banks are received annually and carefully scrutinized. More than one
hundred million dollars of United States bonds have been received,
transferred and deposited wdth the Treasurer during the past year, and
twenty-five millions of dollars of bonds have been withdrawn and surrendered to the banks. Thirty millions of dollars of mutilated currency
have been received, counted, and destroyed, and fifty-two millions of
dollars of new currency issued to the banks. Many thousands of communications are annually received and promptly answered. If any success shall attend the administration of the responsible duties of the
office, the Comptroller Avill be in a large measure indebted to the indus- .
try and efficiency of the Deputy Comptroller, of the competent corps of
examiners, and of the chiefs of the different divisions, and to the services
of experienced clerks, who haA^e assisted him in the discharge of these
duties. A re-organization bf the office, Avith increased pay corresponding
to the responsibility of the different positions, Avould be a proper recognition of services Avhich liaA^e too long been Avell performed without corresponding compensation.
APPENDIX.

Special attention is called to the carefully prepared tables contained
in the appendix, exhibiting the aggregate resources and liabilities of all
the national banks, yearly, for the last ten years; to tables showing
their condition during the present year, for five different periods, arranged by States and redemption cities, and separate statements of
every bank of the Union upon the third day^ of October ultimo; also to

dends and earnings of the national banks, by States and cities, semiannually, from March 1, 1869, to August 31,1872; together Avith lists of
insolvent banks, and banks which have gone into voluntary liquidation,
andtheamounts and differentkinds of United States bonds deposited with

Kumber of letters sent out from the division during the year, 17^444:
average number of clerks employed, 94j^^^.
A comparison of the above with my last annual report will show a
large increase in the number of accounts and returns received and
settled, without a corresponding increase in the amounts involved. This
increase is accounted for in this way : Prior to the rebellion, accounts
and returns were rendered quarterly, and after administrative action
was had by the proper military bureau. Generally each account and
return as rendered was transmitted to this office by a separate letter,
and in making entries of receipts it became customary to consider a
letter of transmittal and an account or return as numerically the same.
In consequence of inadequate clerical force to dispose of the largely
increased business accumulated in the Quartermaster-General's Office,
all the accounts or returns of any one officer which had been examined
at the time of transmittal were forwarded with one letter, which circumstance appears to have been overlooked in entering the receipt by
this office, as the letters continued tobe considered as synonymous with
an account, when, in point of fact, the letter covered several accounts—
so that the record of receipts really showed the number of letters of
transmittal of the Quartermaster-General instead of the number of accounts and returns received. When this was discovered all the unexamined accounts and returns on file in this office were counted, and showed
the following result on 31st August, 1871: Quartermaster accounts,
per count, 2,683; quartermaster accounts, per register, 465; quartermaster returns, jier count, 7,165; quartermaster returns, per register;
2,095; signal-returns, per count, 6; signal-returns per register, 2—so
that the number actually on hand exceeded the number as shown by
the register as follows: Quartermaster accounts, ex(3ess 2,218; quartermaster returns, excess 5,070; signal-returns, excess 4. The accounts
of the officers are rendered monthly, and each monthly account is
regarded and counted as one account.
.
SUBSISTENCE DIVISION.

This division audits the accounts of all commissaries and acting commissaries of subsistence in the Army, whose duties are to purchase the
provisions and stores necessary for the feeding of the Army, and see to
their proper distribution. These commissaries render monthly moneyaccounts, with proper vouchers, for disbursements of the funds intrusted to thera, together with a pro vision-return, and vouchers showing the
disposition of provisions and stores purchased and received during each
month. These accounts are received monthly through the office of the
Commissary-Gen eral of Subsistence, and are every six months (or
oftener, if the officer ceases to disburse) examined and audited in tbip

the Treasury for his decision thereon. Upon their receipt back from
the Comptroller with the statement approved, the officers are then
officially notified of the result of said examinations and are called upon,
by this office to adjust or explain any omissions or errors that may have
been discovered. The money and provision accounts, together with
vouchers and papers belonging thereto, are, after examination, placed
in the settled files of this division for future reference and remain
permanently in the custody of this office.

DIVISION.

The duties devolving upon this division are keeping an account with
each Army pensioner of the United States, recording the name, rate,
date of commencement, noting every increase, reduction, transfer, remarriage, death and expiration, whether by limitation under existing
laws, or on account of the disability having ceased. Also, keeping an
account with each pension agent, (of whom there are 59,) charging him
wdth all moneys advanced by the Government, under the several appropriations to pay pensions, receive and register the accounts as sent each
month direct to this office, by the agents who have disbursed the money,
and properly file them for settlement.
Each voucher is properly examined, and the payment made by the
agent is entered on the roll-book opposite the pensioner's name. The act
of June 17, 1870, provided that every soldier who lost a limb in the service ofthe United States might be furnished w^ith an artificial limb, or,
if he should so elect, may receive money commutation in lieu thereof.
The bills for limbs furnished and the transportation, with the vouchers
for money commutation, are all paid by the agents, and are rendered in
the same manner as pension vouchers.
Congress under act July 8, 1870, changed the mode of paying pensioners, and authorized payments to be made quarterly, instead of semiannually as theretofore. This more than doubled the labor of this
division, as twice as many vouchers are received. examined, entered.
filed and reported to the Second Comptroller.
Congress under act July 12, 1870, required that all accounts shall be
settled for each fiscal year, separately, and the balance unexpended
shall be covered into the Treasury. So far as it relates to pension
agents' accounts, I think this one of the best laws enacted; but, of
course, great care has to be exercised to keep the accounts correct. The
act of February 14, 1871, granted pensions to the survivors and certain

widows of the war of 1812. This has increased the roll during the past
year 20,127.
Congress under act June 8, 1872, amended act Oth June, 1866, which
granted to certain disabled soldiers fifteen, twenty, and twenty-five dollars per month, so that now they are entitled to receive eighteen, twentyfour, and thirty-one -^-^^ dollars per month. This necessitates the change
and increase of about seventeen thousand pensioners.

A reference to previous reports will show that the amount involved
in the accounts of quartermasters received in the year 1869 was
$31,816,235.59; in 1870, $8,154,912.33'5 in 1871, $23,126,666.31, and in
1872, $44,830,613.54. The amount involved in the settlements made in
the years named was as follows, viz: in 1869, $117,504,508.64; in 1870,
$31,045,231.69; in 1871, $13,984,186.97, and in 1872, $43,329,640.02. The
excess in the amount of settlements in this division in 1872, reported
. over the previous year, was $22,752,853.49; nearly 100 per cent, greater,,
though the force employed was only about 77 per cent, as great as the
force then employed. A large number of property-returns of officers
of the Army have been settled under the act of June 23, 1870, authorizing the settlement of the accounts of officers of the Army and ISTavy.
Prior to the rebellion it was customary to examine money-accounts and
property-returns together; but, by reason of the immense amounts disbursed by officers ofthe Army during the war, and the possible injuries
which might result should settlements be deferred until the returns could
be received and examined, they were transmitted to this office separately
and examined and adjusted separately in this office. The necessity of
such separation does not now seem to exist, and as soon as the accounts
and returns now on file are settled, it is proposed to return to the old
system and settle the accounts and returns of disbursing officers together,
thus insuring greater accuracy and enabling the accounting officers to
examine more readily the returns of property in connection with the
money-accounts disbursed in its purchase.
Your attention is again respectfully invited to the ahsoUtte necessity
for more file-room in this office. The shelving-room suitable for accounts
hSs long been filled, and there are now some six thousand settlements

lying upon the floors of the large file-room. These papers are of great
value to the Government, and should be properly taken care of.
On the 30th of June last, the force of this office was reduced thirtyfive clerks, in accordance with recommendation contained in my report
of 23d of August, 1871.
Some changes have also been made for the better in the organization
of the office, and the work in all the divisions is progressing in a satisfactory manner.
I t afiords me great pleasure to speak of the interest manifested in its
business by all the clerks now employed here, and to commend their
general ability, industry, and faithfulness.
Eespectfully submitted.

S I R : I have the honor to submit the followmg report of the business
operations of this office for the fiscal year ended June 30, 1872. My
forthcoming report to the Postmaster-General will exhibit in detail all
l3hat pertains to the financial transactions of the Post-Office Department for the past fiscal year.
^ Pursuing the plan adopted in presenting my last annual report, I have,
as far as practicable, made quarterly exhibits of the work performed,
with a view of showing the increase of business.
A comparison of the tables and statements in the present report with
those contained in my report for the fi^scal year ended June 30, 1871,
will show a steady increase of business in every division of the Bureau.
EXAMININa D I Y I S I O N — B E N J A M I N LIPPINCOTT, PRINCIPAL EXAMINER.

all post-offices in the United States. It is divided into four subdivisions, viz, the opening-room, the stamp-rooms, the examining corps
proper, and the error-rooms.
1. The opening-room.—All returns, as soon as received, are opened,
and, if found in order, according to regulations, are entered on the
register, carefully folded and tied, and then forwarded to the stamprooms.
The number of quarterly accounts-current received during each
quarter of the fiscal year ended June 30, 1872, was as follows:

duties consist in comparing the stamp-statements of the postmasters in
the accounts-current with their own books and the returns made to them
from the stamp-division of the finance office, whence stamp-orders are
issued and receipts for the same received and forwarded to the stampclerks. The returns thus approved or corrected are passed to the examiners. All accounts from offices of the first and second classes are
passed through the various subdivisions of tbe office in advance of

refooting the transcript of mails received, and examining all vouchers
belonging to that portion of the work, the balance is drawn on all accounts of the third, fourth, and fifth classes. The returns thus examined and completed are forwarded to the registering division to be
entered upon its books.

STATING DIVISION—WILLIAM H. GUNNISON, PRINCIPAL CLERK.

This division has charge of more than thirty-two thousand general
postal accounts of present postmasters, and more than eight thousand
of late postmasters, subdivided into thirteen sections, varying in number from twenty-eight hundred to twenty-two hundred of the former,
and from one thousand to four hundred of the latter.
Each account is stated quarterly from the various records of the office,
a comparison of the items made with those of any statements of general
accounts rendered by the postmasters, and with the ledgers of the bookkeepers, the differences investigated, if possible adjusted, and instructions sent, according to the classification of the office, as to the disposition of the balances as audited. Other duties of the division are, to
correspond with postmasters in special cases ^ to cause drafts to be
issued for balances due the United States in cases of continued neglect
or refusal to pay, in order that demand for payment may be made on
sureties; to record'^changes" reported weekly from the appointment
office; to have "speciaP^ offices made "deposit'-' also, whenever the
quarterly proceeds sufficiently exceed payments for the special mail
service; to make reports to the Postmaster-General of failures—to pay
quarterly proceeds on collection-orders, to render accounts-current for
two or more quarters, to order stamps from the Department, and of new
appointees to qualify within a reasonable time.
Accounts 6f " draft," ^ deposit," and "collection " offices of the first,
^
second, and third classes have been stated much earlier during thepast
year than ever before, viz, from the 1st of the second month to the 20th
of the third month, in the quarter succeeding that to which the items
pertain, owing both to the efficiency of the clerks and the increased
facilities for obtaining the various data, thus allowing statements
and instructions to reach postmasters in time for examination, and
any necessary entries on their own records, before rendering their
general accounts for the current quarter. Accounts of postmasters at
"collection" offices of the fourth and fifth classes, showing balances of
$10 or more, as stated from the ledgers each quarter, have had the items
of the succeeding quarter added from later records; and, whenever the
accounts continued to show such indebtedness, special instructions were
sent that such amounts be included in the payments for the current

quarter. The remaining accounts of present postmasters at offices of the
fourth and fifth classes were stated and balanced with the ledgers to
the close of the last fiscal year, before the Slst of January, a;id where
balances of more than $1 were found due the United States, or balances of more than $25 due the postmaster, instructions were sent to,
include the former amounts in their payments at the close of the current quarter, and giving authority to retain the latter from subsequent
proceeds of their offices.
Accounts of late postmasters have been fully stated to latest dates
audited, in advance o f t h e time, usually allowed. for adjustment, that
the results may be used in the annual report of the office to the Postmaster-General.
By the foregoing system a complete^revision of all the general postal
accounts, as recorded in the office, is secured each quarter, an adjustment had once a quarter with all postmasters at "draft" and "deposit"
offices,,and "collection" offices of the first, second, and third classes,

COLLECTINa DIVISION—E. J . EVANS, PRINCIPAL CLERK.

The duties of this division are to collect balances due from late and
present postmasters throughout the United States, and to attend to the
final settlement of the same. The number of clerks employed at this
time is twenty, apportioned as follows:
On correspondence, 4. The duties of these gentlemen are to correspond
iu relation to postmasters', late postmasters' and contractors' accounts,
with a view to the collection of balances due the Department, and4o

fjrepare for submission for suit accdunts of defaulting postmasters and
contractors.
'
On drafts, 1. His duties are to locate and issue drafts for the collection,
of balances due by postmasters and contractors, and record the same in
the draft-register; and to report to the Post-Office Department for payment all balances due to late postmasters, and record the same in a
book kept for that purpose.
On changes, 1. His duties are to record all changes of postmasters
reported to this office from the Post-Office Department; to enter drafts
paid and file them away; to record all accounts of late postmasters in
the book of balances, and to state the final action thereon.
On letter-books, 2. Their duties are to record all letters WTitten, and
address and transmit the same; also, to transmit all circulars received
by them from the corresponding clerks.
On miscellaneous, 1. His duties are to examine and compare with the
lerlgers all accounts of late postmasters, and close the same as '' uncollectible" or by '^ suspense,'^ and to assist in the preparation of the Postmaster-General's annual report.
On copying, 11. Their duties are to copy all accounts of postmasters
and others, and transmit the same in their respective circulars; to
copy changes of postmasters; to prepare salary-books of the various
post-offices in the country, and to assist in the adjustment of salaries.
I most respectfully ask your attention to the statement in the accompanying table, exhibiting the aggregate amount of balances due to •
late postmasters reported to the Post-Office Department. The system
adopted by this office of paying credit balances is of recent origin, having been inaugurated under our present management, and is regarded
as but just and equitable between the Government and its employes.
^ The large number ot cases which appears in this and last year's report
explained by the fact that it is the accumulation of many years.
Hereafter it is the intention of this office, as far as practicable, to pay
^11 balances due to late postmasters annually. The gentleman to whom
this work is assigned is capable and faithful, and, for the manner in
which he discharges the business of his desk, is, I think, worthy of
;special. mention.
I t gives me pleasure to state that the regulations of the Department
requiring current business to be dispatched on the day received are
observed by the division generally, but particularly by the men on correspondence, and that they are indefatigable in the performance ofthe duties
intrusted to them, I beg leave to refer to the annexed table as evidence,,
although it but imperfectly exhibits the actual labor performed.

REPORT
THE TREASURER OF THE UNITED STATES.
TREASURY OF T H E UNITED STATES,

Washington, Octoher 29,1872.
SIR : In obedience to statutory provisions, aud in compliance with
departmental regulations, I have the honor to submit to you, herewith,
a statement of the condition of the Treasury of the United States, as
it stood at the close of the business of the fiscal year euding with the
month of June, 1872, and of its movement during the year preceding
that time, together with remarks in regard to the past, and suggestions
touching its needs, conduct, and management in the future.
INCREASE OF WORK.

During the past year the labor of the office has been, and continues
to be, largely increased. This is due, mainly, to the following causes :
To the redemption of old loans, aud the change ofthe mode of paying
interest. Payraent of the interest on the registered part of the old
loans, was made ouly semi-annuallyj and then on the simple signing of a
prepared list. On the new loan, it is paid quarterly by a separate draft
for the amount, aud payable to the order of each stockholder:
To a new requirement, directing the weekly examination, and the giving
of an official certificate as to the condition ofthe accounts of ever^^ dk^bursing officer of the Government, certifying to the Heads of Departments, or
the Chiefs of Bureaus thereof, to which such officer may belong, the
balance standing to the credit of such officer at the end of each week
Avith the Treasurer, any Assistant Treasurer, designated depositary,' or
national bank, designated as a depositary of the United States. This
necessitates the examination of one hundred and forty-five lists of rep<orts of the Aveekly condition .of the accounts of these officers, from
these various depositaries ; and of eleven hundred and thirty-five weekly
reports of disbursing officers, located in all parts of the Union. A critical
comparison is made of the one with the other, and a statiement of the
condition of the account of each disbursing officer, as reported by the
depositary, is indorsed upon the back of each disbursing officer's report,
stating the diiference, if less than the amount reported by him. This
statement is then officially certified, and returned to the head of the Department, or the chief of the bureau to which it belongs.
From present indications the work, in addition to the above, will be
still further increased in consequence of the more rapid, than heretofore,
redemption of mutilated currency of all kinds, superinduced by an act of
Congress, that permits the registration of letters to and from this office



262

REPORT ON THE FINANCES.

free of charge iov ^it\iQv postage or registration, that contain mutilated curcurrency to, or new currency in return therefor frora, the Treasury; and
also, by. a new arr^ingement with Adams Express Company, including all
companies connecting with that company, by which j^'ye ^.ohars or more
in fractional currency, or fifty dollars or more in legal-tender United
States notes, or mixed of hoth legal-tenders and fractional currency, m^j he
forwarded to the Treasury by any corporation, association, officer, or
private citizen, and return therefor be made by new currency, or by
draft, free of charge to the sender, the whole being at the sole proper
charge and expense of the Government. There are still other causes
for the increase of the w^prk of the office. Among these is the larger
return of the notes of national banks iu liquidation.
As new loans wdll probably be placed, necessitating the redemption of
old stocks, there Avill probably be no decrease of work in the immediate
future. It may therefore become necessary to ask for an increase ofthe
working force of the office within the current year. This^^ill, however,
not be done if it shall be found possible to conduct the business of the
office correctly, and with safety and dispatch, with the force now employed.
CIVIL SERVICE REFORM AND PAY OF EMPLOYES.

No matter what plans may be adopted, or what expedients may be
resorted to, for reform in the civil service of the Government, the
opinion is ventured that there will be no real reform until adequate
I)ay is by law provided for those engaged in that service. While the
price of everything else, including the wages of labor, whether skilled
or otherwise, has advanced enormously, the salaries of neaiij^ all Government officials, save those of the Array and Navy, and of all the
clerks, have remained as they were fixed by law when the purchasing
power of the dollar was more than double, if not triple, what it now is.
Take, for example, the inspectors of customs—not that their case is a
peculiarly hard one, for their wages have been raised one-third, while those
of others have remained unchanged, but because this class of men are employed to watch the fountains, and stand sentry at the very portals of
our principal sources of reveuue. They are now paid only four dollars
a day. This is less than is paid to many journeymen mechanics. Does
any one, possessing an ordinary portion of brains, believe t>hat under
such circumstances the requisite number of honest and competent men
can "be procured to faithfully x>erform the arduous and very responsible
duties required of these officers'? These men have, or should have,
families, for the"family is ordinarily the greatest security for the man's
honesty. With the present pay of these officers, it is barely possible to
support a family. ^What is the probable result'^^ Eather than see their
wives and children suffer for the want of the comforts of life, they yield
to the temptation that the Government forces upon them; and thus the
revenue is defrauded to amounts many-fold that which it would cost
for salaries commensurate to the services performed, and the duties required of these important officers. What is said of this class, is true to
a degree of almost every civil officer and employe of the Government.
Until demagogues and a hypocritical party press shall cease their
clamor forareductionofsalari.es, and until legislators shall learn not tobe
'^ penny-wise and pound-foolish," there will be little hope for a thorough
reform in the civil service of the Government. Another evil is the cry for
a reduction of the working force in the public offices. The truth is, that
the number of clerks in many of the offices is inadequate to the safe
conduct of the public business.



TREASURER.

"

263

The requirement of too many and various duties of one and the same
person, prevents the application ofthe proper safeguards that prudence
demands for the safe transaction of official business. The losses sustaied in this office, and the large and more recent one in the office ofthe
Assistant Treasurer in the city of New York, are almost, if not entirely,
due to the fact that there was not sufficient help in the offices to secure
the necessary checks afforded by the supervision of one man over the
acts of another. The want of these needed checks has been the real
cause of most if not all of the defalcations that have occurred. The
large loss, last year, in the pay-bureau bf the Army would not have
occurred if the checks of this office that have since been placed
upon that had existed at that time. The attempted reform in the reduction of the force of the offices, like that to reduce the pay of those employed therein, is in the direction directly opposite that believed to be
the true one for the correct, economical, and safe transaction of the public business.
There is a class of offices that rich men will take, for the honor they
are supposed to confer upon the holder. There is another class that
dishonest men strive for and struggle to obtain, because of the '^ stealings'' they hope to ^ make off", tliem. As matters are now arranged,
^
an honest, competent p)oor ma.n is debarred and virtually disqualified
and disfranchised from holding places of public trust. None but rich
men or rascals can now afford to hold any of the public'Offiees that were
formerly considered places of high honor. Then offices were conferred
upon persons of distinguished honesty and ability, and were coveted by
the purest and best men in the land; and office-holders were treated with
respect, and were looked up to by whole communities as exemplars of
private and public virtue. Now they are looked upon with suspicion •
and distrust.
It has become fashionable for persons who believe themselves to be
reformers, to talk flippantly of the degeneracy of the public morals. It
would be well for all such should they set themselves seriously to the
examination of the cause, and of themselves as well, and see if they
themselves are not to blame for the state of things they so much deplore.
My official life will soon end; I have no personal' motives to serve, and
can therefore afford, and feel constrained, without tear of demagogues,
who hope to make jjarty capital^at the people's expense, to tell the honest
truth as it has forced conviction upon my mind, after long experience
and close observation of the workings of the public service. The conclusion arrived at is, that no real, radical reform in the civil service can
be hoped for until the holding of a public office shall be considered as
conferring honor upon the possessor, and the office-holder be an honor
to the people he-represents and serves. This, itis believed, can only be
brought about by the payment of such salaries as will draw into the
public service, from the more lucrative pursuits of private life, coinpetent and honest men, every way fit for and worthy of places of honor
and trust.
If our form of government is to fail, it is hoped that it may be by a
bloody revolution, rather than by the corruption that itis feared willbe
brought into its system by the paymentof low salaries to a low order of
men holding its public offices. And, just here, I desire again to caU
attention to and reiterate all that has heretofore been said on this subject in my last and in former reports, and in an especial manner so far
as the pay of the personnel of this office is concerned. Another year's
experience has more than ever satisfied me of the correctness of the
views therein set forth. But for an annual extra compensation allowed



264

to certain employes in this office, it would not be practicable to transact
the public business pertaining thereto.
LOSSES.

'

In my annual report for 1869 it was stated that in the eight years
and more that the Treasury of the United States had ^'been in my
charge, duriug which time money transactions were had that foot on
the books of the office at a sum exceeding forty-four thonsand million
dollars," and that ''notwithstanding the fact that vast sums of money
have been, and are every day, handled by hundreds.of persons in this
office, yet not one cent has, up to this time, been lost to the people of
the United States on account of the management ofthe Treasury, or on
account of the conduct of any employes in this office." And 1 went on
to say that I f e l t ' ' t h a t such good fortune cannot last always. The
bark of the inost fortunate and skillful mariner may at last be wrecked
on some hidden rock. The law of chances is now strongly agaiuvSt me.
I therefore now, more than ever, feel an anxious desire to retire from
the perilous position that I hold." The painful forebodings that then
oppressed me have been verified, and came to pass within the past year.
Soon after my return from Europe, where you had sent me to aid in
the negotiation of the new loan, the dreadful discovery was made that
two ofthe officeis attached to this Bureau had robbed the Government
of $62,000. Both these men had been iu the office for many years.
They came in with the highest recommendations for capacity, honesty.
and integrity. Both of them had families of their own, and they were
connected with families of the highest respectability and character.
Both were members of Christian churches. Their personal behavior,
conduct, and bearing in the office were such as to place them above suspicion, and to induce their promotion, through all the four grades of
clerkships, to the responsible offices which they held when they
vielded to temptation and fell.
" Frederick A. Marden, the chief of the division of accounts, whose duty
it was, in part, to pay the salaries of all the employes of this office, with the
connivance of Seth Johnson, the assistant paying-teller, managed to
embezzle $12,000. Seth Johnson not only assisted Marden in perpetrating the fraud, by taking his checks, on the Treasury where he had
no funds, and concealing the fact by counting the checks as cash, but
he himself purloined $50,000, and covered it up by making false entries
in his books. The accounts of these two defalcations now^ stand as follows:
Frederick A. Marden's deMcation
Recovered lioai back salary
Cash retnrned
Proceeds of United States bond
Seth Johnson's defalcation
Recovered from back salary

It came out, on the investigation, that Seth Johnson had lent John
F. Cowen a sum of moneyj which, at the time of the exposure, with in


265,

terest, amounted to $3,700. To secure the payment of that isum, Mr.
Cowen left with the Assistant Treasurer bonds of the Cincirinati and
Terre Haute Railroad Company, of the par value-of $4,000.1 Default
having been made in payment of the notes to which these bqnds were
collateral, they are now the x>i'operty of the United States. The market value of the bonds is not known. Whatever amount is realized'
from their sale will be deducted, and will reduce Johnson's defalcation
by that amount.
Mortifying as all this is, yet, when compared with other ordinary
money transactions, and by the laws of chances, the wonder is that it
has not been much w^orse. When it is considered that the money trans- ,
actions of the Treasury foot many millions of dollars every business day
in the year, and that the losses, as compared wath the footinjgs of the
books, do not amount to one ten-thousandth of one per cenjt. on the
gross amount, it will be believed that this is a less percentage of loss
'by defalcations and through dishonesty than occurs from the same
causes in the ordinary transactions of private business. The defalcations in banks and other moneyed institutions for the same time would^
show a percentage vastly in excess of those that have happened in the
Treasury during the last eleven years. As an instance, a bank with a
caj3ital of only $150,000, that was for many years in charge of myself
a s n t s executive officer, and during all that tim^. never lost alcent, has,
since 1 came'here, lost by the defalcation of its cashier, a sum nearly
equal to all the losses by defalcations that have occurred in jthis office
since it has been in my,con trol. I do not make this statement! in excuse
for my misfortunes from the acts of others, but to show that, in large
business transactions, losses are inevitable.
j
COMPARISON OF RECEIPTS AND EXPENDITURES, j

By an examination of the tables of receipts and of expenditures by'
warrants, that immediately follow this report, and by a comparison with
the like tables of the preceding fiscal year, it will be found that -the
payments for the reduction of the Public Debt, and for the payments of
the interest on the same, have fallen off, for this, as compared with the
preceding year, $39,199,719.29. It will also be found that there has been
a decrease of gross receipts, as follows: On accountof Internal Revenue,
of $12,455,975.91; from sales of wnv materiel.$2,138,079.6^^, and from
miscellaneous sources, of $4,989,055.45. And" that there has been an
increase of gross receipts Irom the Interior Department, of $2,546,310.41;
from the Navy Department, of $52,544.86 ; from sale of lands, of $187,067.51, and from customs, in gold, of $10,099,878.72.. It will be found
tha,t there has been an increase of gross expenditures for pay ofthe
Judiciary, of $707,857.66; on account of foreign intercourse, of $303,442.54 ; for expenditure for the Treasury proper, of $420,604.86; for the
collection of customs, of $612,215.94; for quarterly salaries, of $7,944.01;
for the civil branch of the War Department, of $195,665.42; on account
of the Navy, of $1,871,327.64. And that there has been a decrease of
gross expenditures for the Army of $2,565,914.31; for the Interior Department, of $3,729,450.33; for'the Treasury Interior, of $140,403.09;
for collection of the internal revenue, $1,457,922.49.
The duty collected from national banks on their capital, circulation,
aud deposits, in.addition to taxes collected by the collectors of internal
revenue, amounted in this fiscal year to

REPORT ON THE FINANCES.

The securities left on deposit with the Treasurer, by national banks,,
at the close of the fiscal year, were as follows:
• To secure the redemption of circuhiting notes
To secnre pnblic deposits
To secure subscriptions to the funded loan
Total par vakie of securities held

.^

$380, 440,700
15,759, 000
3,878, 300
400, 078,000

The last item has since been entirely withdrawn, as all the subscriptions to the loan of 1881 have been paid. On November 28, 1871, the
deposits on account of the subscriptions, in United^ States stocks,
amounted to $57,267-,400. On that day, the face value of the United
States bonds belonging to national banks, deposited in a single vault of
theTreasury, was over four hundred and fifty millions, and their market
value over five hundred million dollars.
The "conscience fund" was increased during, the year in various
sums, aggregating $2,997.42 ; and now amounts to $129,144.77. These
contributions have been made by person^ who thus acknowledged not
'only their indebtedness, but their willingness to pay the Government
what they owed it. On the other hand, the United States is indebted
to indivicluals on various accounts, but principally for unclaimed interest on bonds. Governments should set an example of honesty to the
people. The withholdi^3g of the amount of an honest indebtedness is
^as dishonest as, and more mean than, an absolute refusal to pay. It
is therefore recommended that there shall be prepared and published,
after the close of every fiscal year, a list of all unclaimed balances
due from the Government that have remained upon tlie books of the
Department for two years or more; said list to state the names of the
persons to whom moneys are due, and the amount due each respectively.
In the tables that a,re hereunto appended w'ill appear, in gross and in
detail, the business and work of this office for the last fiscal year, and,
to some extent, for former years; together with the aniounts of funds
received, and the particular sources of income, and the money expended,
and on what account, and for what purpose paid out. Also, the issue of
new and the redemption of old paper money; as well as the securities
held in trust for national banks, and the notes of such banks as are in.
liquidation, that have been redeemed; together wdth various other matters of interest relating to the business operations of the Treasury of the
United States.

All of which is submitted by.

REPORT

I

!

THE • REGISTER

OF THE TREASURYTREASURY DEPARTMENT,

Register's Office^ Noveniber 15, 1872.
S I R : I have the honor to submit my annual report of the transactions
of this Bureau for the last fiscal year.
|
AmoDg the duties of this office, is that of furnishiug the various and
oftentimes voluminous statements f^om the books of this pffice required
by the different Bureaus, members of Gongress, and the public generally.
These statements frequently embrace the transactions of previous years,
sometimes runuing back even to the formation of the Go\^ernment. As
our centennial anniversary is at hand, it appears to me that a properly
classified and arranged published statement of the receipts and expenditures of the Government, showing the amount expended under each
head of appropriation, arranged in tabular form, from the inception of
t h e Government, embracing the period of one hundred y^ars, would be
of incalculable advantage as a complete and accurate record of the
fl S3al transactions of the Government, as well as a statistical work of
rare value.
I
I Avould respectfully suggest the following plan of the work:
E E C E I P T S to be classiiied under two general heads, current or ordinary^.
and extraordinary.
'
;
FIRST.—Current or ordinary to embrace the current andj usual annual
sources of revenue nnder the following sub-classifications,!viz:
CUSTOMS.—Eeceipts from each collection district, arranged by States,
from customs, steamboat fees, fines, penalties, and forfeitlures, surplus
emoluments, coastwise intercourse, labor, drayage, and storage, &c.
LANDS.—Eeceipts from lands arranged by States, registers and receivers^ fees, and all other recjeipts arising from the sales o'f lands.
DIPLOMATIC.—Eeceipts from consular fees, consular receipts, &c.
COURTS.—Eeceipts from fines, penalties, and forfeituiresj surplus
emoluments, &c.
I
"
T R U S T FUNDS.—Eeceipts from interest on stocks and prdceeds of sale
of bonds held in trust.
!
MINTS AND ASSAY OFFICES.—Eeceipts from bullion deiiosits, profits
on coinage, sweeps, &c.
|
SALES OF GOVERNMENT PROPERTY.—Eeceipts from salejs of customhouses, marine hospitals, waste paper, old materials, &c.
MISCELLANEOUS.—Embracing receipts from various current sources
Avhich cannot be readily classified.
"
j
SECOND.—JExtraordina.ry to embrace receipts arising from extraordinary sonrces and intended to be applicable to meet certain 'emergencies
that have arisen or may arise, under the following sub-classification:
LOANS.—Eeceipts from each loan, stating also for what purpose the
loan was effected.



330

REPORT ON THE FINANCES

LOANS.—Premiums showing the amount of premium received from
each loan.
. ,
LOANS.—Interest showing the amount of interest received from each
loan.
INTERNAL REVENUE.—Eeceipts from each district, arranged by
States, from internal revenue, from tax on circulation of national banks,
from direct tax, and all other sources of internal revenue.
MILITARY^—Eeceipts from captured and abandoned property, from
confiscations, from commutation from drafted persons, from deserters,
&c.
IN'AVY^.—Eeceipts from sales of prize-vessels, sales of vessels condemned for being engaged in the slave-trade, &c.^.
It is purposed to give only a general outline of the plan of classification. As the work progresses it. wall probably be found expedient to
vary somewhat, to amplify, to condense, or otherwise modify any general
plan laid down, in order that the largest and most varied amount of
information may be classified in the raost concise and satisfactory manner, aggregating, as far as practicable, the receipts from sources of a
like character together.
Expenditures to be classified as follows:
CIVIL.—Embracing the legislative, executive, judiciary, and territorial, classifying first all compensation accounts, second all miscellaneous and contingent, and sub-classified as follows:
LEGISLATIVE.—Senate, House of Eepresentatives, Library of Congress, Botanic Garden, Public Printing, and Court of Claims.
EXECUTIVE.—Executive proper, Department of State, Treasury Department, Independent Treasnry, Interior, Internal Eevenue, War Department, Navy Department, Post-Office Department, Agricultural Department, &c.
JUDICIARY.—Expenses of courts, compensation of judges, marshals,
.attorneys, &c.
TERRITORIAL.—Coinpensation of governor, judges, &c.; compensation and mileage of members, contingent expenses.
CUSTOMS :
G E N E R A L ACCOUNTS.—Expenses

collecting revenue, revenue-cutter
service, &c., arranged by ports.
E E F U N D I N G ACCOUNTS.—Eepayments to importers, debentures and
drawbacks, and all other refunding accounts.
P U B L I C BUILDINGS.—Eepairs, furniture, and repairs, fuel and miscellaneous items for public buildings.

MISCELLANEOUS, embracing such accounts as cannot readily be classified. •
INTERNAL R E V E N U E :
G E N E R A L ACCOUNT.—Expenses

collecting and assessing the internal
revenue, arranged by districts.
E E F U N D I N G ACCOUNTS.—Allowance or drawbacks, and all other refunding accounts.

the expenditures for forts, improvement of harbors and rivers, arranged
by States.
MISCELLANEOUS,

' JSTAVAL ESTABLISHJMENT, to be arranged by Bureaus.
P U B L I C DEBT.—Expenditures on account of the public debt, classified
under the heads of p)rinci2ml^ premium., and interest.
j
As in the receipts it is only, proposed to give a general outline of the
plan of classification, the detail ofthe work will necessarilyj modify any
general plan that might be laid down. It would be the aim of those
engaged in the compilation to so classify and arrange both the receipts
a^nd expenditures from 1776 to 1876, so as to condense such items as are
of minor importance, and to amplify and enlarge upon such as are frequently required.
j
In connection Avith the foregoing I Avould respectfully [suggest the
propriety of establishing in this. Bureau a division of reports and statements, the duties of Avhich would be—
{
First. The compilation and preparation of the receipts and expenditures for publication annuallv in accordance Avith the law bf Congress
of December 30, 1871.
'
.
1
Second. Furnishing the statistical information annually required from
this office for the estimates of appropriations, finance report? ^Ed Eegister's report.
|
Third. Compiling the A^arious statements required by the governmental Departments, members of Congress, &c.
Fourth. The compilation, as aboA^e suggested, ofthe receipts and expenditures of the GoA^ernment from 1776 to 1876, inclusiveJ
The AA^ant of a properly organized division, under the h^ad of a competent person, to Avhom all letters of inquiry requiring statistical information could be referred, and whose duty it would be to furnish the multifold and A-aluable information annually required, has lon^ been felt to
be desirable instead of the present method of referring Sometimes°to
one clerk and sometimes to another, resulting in frequent apparently
incongruous and contradictory statements upon the same s'ubject.




332

REPORT ON THE FINANCES.

There are at present engaged upon the three first-mentioned objects
a force of four clerks. Should this force be increased to six clerks, and
a division, as suggested, established, the Avork could readily be accomplished Avithout adding greatly to the expenses of the Bureau. I t seems
to me that the benefits to be derived are so apparent and so great that
the additional expenses should not prcA^ent the adoption of a i)lain
w^hich, if adopted, is calculated to secure uniformity and correctness in
all reports emanating from this office.
Ebt presuming to assume that these suggestions are the best that
could be devised to secure the object in view, I yet think themAvorthy
of being submitted for your consideration, and hope they may meet
your sanction and approA^al.
The report of business transacted is submitted under the head of the
division to which it appertains.

REGISTER.

The manuscript for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1870, will be ready
for the printer by the 1st of December next.
!
In the report for 1871 your attention Avas called to th0 fact that the
work of this diAdsion has been materially increased by the act of July
12, 1870. The experience of the past year has demonstrated that this
increase has been much greater than anticipated, involving nearly a
third more labor to the division, wTiile the force remains substantially
the same as it was prior to the passage of the law.

This embraces only a portion of the actual redemptiqns during the
year, as the bonds pass through the hands of the accounting officers
before reaching this office.
I
About $50,000,000 coupon-bonds, purchased by the Sjecretary, haA^e
been receiA^ed, registered, canceled, and turned over to the| burning committee. These bonds are first canceled by the assistant treasurer,
before transmittal to the Treasurer. They also receive aldditional cancellation in CA^ery stage of accountability, rendering any improper use of
them impossible.
I
The vault account shows that there have been received from the
Bureau of Printing and EngraAdng 44,766 sheets of registered bonds,
amounting to $301,225,000; and 209,500 sheets of coupon-bonds of the
funded loan of 1881, amounting to $142,300,000, of \yhich there is
$80,061,550 still on hand; 21,436,550 signed and sealed, land ready for
delivery.
!
The payment of interest on the funded loan of 1881, by coin checks,
meets Avith general approval.
j
Heretofore, only the names of the payees on the consolijdated interest
schedules have been printed, but for the next January dividend, payable
at IS'ew York, the Avhole of the schedule Avill be printed, thus materially
reducing the great amount of clerical Avork, heretofore necessary, both
here and in the office of the assistant treasurer.
