OPERATIONS OF THE TREASURY.
The aggregate receipts for the fiscal year, under warrant, as shown by
the report of the Treasurer of the United States, were $738,549,255.20,
and the disbursements, $827,588,124.80. There was consequently a
decrease of $89,038,869.60 in the general Treasury balance, which stood
at $864,790,237.71 at the opening of the year and at $775,751,368.11
at the close. Besides the ordinary revenues, there were receipts on
account of the public debt which swelled the total income available in
the fiscal operations of the Government to $481,612,255.20, while corresponding additions to the ordinary expenditures brought the total
on this side of the account up to $543,561,104.80, and created a deficiency of $61,948,849.60 as the net result. These figures, however, do
not include any part ofthe loan of $200,000,000, the proceeds of which
had begun to come in before the close of the year, though none were
formally covered into the Treasury until afterwards. On the side of
the receipts is included the sum of $64,751,223.75, realized from the
„ sale of the Union Pacific and Kansas Pacific railroads, while, on the
other hand, the expenditures are increased by $29,850,952, disbursed
in the redemption of Pacific Eailroad subsidy bonds.
A better view ofthe results of the year's fiscal operations is afforded
by the changes in the assets of the Treasury. The total holdings available in this branch of the business show only the insignificant falling off
from $283,295,424.23 to $275,747,803.17. So unusual a variance as this
between the accounts of the Department and the actual condition of the
Treasury is due chiefiy to thereceipts from the new loan, on the one
hand, and to unexpended advances to disbursing officers on the other.
In the character of the assets there was such an improvement as to
constitute a substantial gain in strength. The changes were an increase
in gold and in deposits with national banks, while the losses were in

silver and Treasury notes. With insignificant interruptions, the free
gold, which stood at $139,867,158.57 at the beginning of the year, continued to increase until it reached $181,240,388.81 on May 4, 1898.
After this, the extraordinary expenditures caused by the war, together
with the. depletion of the other forms of cash, compelled the use of gold
in current disbursements, and drew down the Treasury reserve, by June
18, to $163,474,057.32. After that date the proceeds of the loan began
to afford relief, and the reserve grew rapidly, until it reached
$245,063,795.51 on October 7, 1898, the highest point this fund has
ever attained. Since then the necessities of the situation have required
an enlarged use of the coin in disbursements, which has had the inevitable result of diminishing the holdings, though only to an insignificant
extent.
By forethought and care an ample stock of notes of suitable denominations was provided to meet the demand for the annual movement of
the crops, and the difficulties presented by this task in former years
have been in large part avoided. Within forty days after the 1st of
September, Chicago alone was supplied with $5,150,000 in small notes
in exchange for larger denominations. In the twelve months ended
September 30 last the amount of outstanding notes of the denomination
of $20 and under increased from $861,433,826 to $903,090,863, while the '
increase of the gold coin in circulation in the same period, all of course
of the like denominations, amounted to $94,551,059, making a total
addition to such currency of $136,208,096.
Although the net gold in the Treasury during the past year has
exceeded the needs of the Government, having been greater, both absolutely and in proportion to other moneys, than ever before, it was found
possible, up to the middle of October, to accept gold coin to the extent
of over fifteen millions of dollars in exchange for notes of small denominations, which were needed to facilitate the business of the country.
The first proceeds of the popular loan of $200,000,000 were received
on the 14th of June, and from that date forward the inflow of money
from this source has been rapid and constant. The total amount
received up to l^ovember 1 was $195,444,187.62.
With the object of averting the possibility of financial stringency,
which might have been apprehended as the result of the drain upon
the currency in circulation, the payment of the interest due October
1 on the 4 per cent loan of 1907 was anticipated, the maturing coupons
being made payable on September 10, while the checks for the interest
on the registered bonds were sent out September 20. Like anticipation
was also made in the case of the interest falling due November 1. The
total amount of the payments thus advanced was $9,815,116.85.
With like purpose, under the circular of September 3,1898, the Pacific
Eailroad bonds, which will fall due on January 1, 1899, amounting to
$14,004,560, were made payable, principal and interest, in full, with a
rebate of one-half of 1 per cent. It was also directed that a large share

of the proceeds of the popular loan be deposited in national banks, so
that these funds, while at all times available for use, might, until needed,
remain in the channels of trade. • The deposits in national banks were
thus increased by $66,775,610.88 between May 31 and October 31.
The effect of these measures has proved in all respects satisfactory.

Legislation recommended.
Wastage.—Section 3542 of the Eevised Statutes limits the amount
allowed for wastage by the operative officers in the Mint Service in the
case of the melter and refiner to one-thousandth part of the gold and
two-thousandths part of the silver, and in the case of the coiner to one


XXXII

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

half thousandth part of the gold and one-thousandth part of the silver,
delivered to each. Experience has demonstrated that one-half of this
allowance would be ample to cover the necessary loss involved in their
operations upon these metals. It has previously been suggested that
the legal allowance be reduced accordingly, and the recommendation
is repeated.
Foreign coin.—Theamouut of foreign gold coin deposited at the mints
and assay offices during the year was $47,210,078. Under the law these
coins can not be paid out again, but must be melted. If the Secretary of
the Treasury were permitted, in his discretion, to hold these deposits, he
could frequently use them to supply the demand for gold for exportation, instead of delivering domestic coins or bars. Our own coin frequently goes abroad and remains for years in foreign treasuries. There .
is no reason why every foreign coin received at our Treasury should be
imperatively required to be melted.
Silver coinage.—The only provision of law now existing by which any
increase in the stock of fractional coin in the country can be made is that
(sec. 3545, Eev. Stat.) authorizing the purchase of the small amount of
silver contained in and separated from gold deposits.
The amount of silver thus obtained last year from gold deposits was
184,595.39 fine ounces, which would be sufficient to coin about
$255,000 of our fractional coin. This i s wholly inadequate to meet the
actual demand. There has been in the past a large stock of fractional
coin in the Treasury, accumulated after the resumption of specie payments. During the period of paper money our stock of silver coin was
exported principally to Central and South American countries, where
it passed at its face value; but upon resumption of specie payments and
the passage of the act of June 9, 1879, providing for the redemption of
fractional silver at its face value, these coins returned in such quantities
that, with the new coinage executed, the fractional silver became
redundant and accumulated in the Treasury. For the last ten years
the country has been absorbing that stock at the rate of from $1,500,000
to $2,000,000 per year, and this year the demand has been exceptionally
strong. The amount of fractional silver coin held by the Treasury
July 1,1897, was $16,201,960; on July 1,1898, $12,070,690. This stock
has, at present, November 18, been reduced to $7,122,506, much of which
is so worn as to be unfit for circulation.
The amount available, distributed among the several subtreasuries,
gives but small stock to each, and some denominations are exhausted.
The Secretary of the Treasury should be authorized to recoin this '
uncurrent stock, and any such coin which may hereafter accumulate
in the Treasury, the difference between its face value and the new coin
it will make to be paid out of any moneys in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated. Further provision should be made to add to the
stock of fractional coin, and to that end it is suggested that the Secretary of the Treasury be authorized to use any silver bullion now in



REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

the Treasury for the coinage of such denominations as may be required
from time to time to meet the demand from the different sections of
the country. With an ever-increasing population, which will be added
to in the near future by the acquisition of additional territory, the
demand for fractional silver coin will be such as to make it essentially
necessary that the stock should be increased.
Discontinuance of Carson mint and St. Louis assay office.—The total
deposits of gold at the Carson mint during the last fiscal year were of
the value of only $530,438.87. The expense of conducting the institution was $37,578.41, in addition to which the Government paid the
express charges on the bullion to the San Francisco mint in preference to
conducting coinage operations at Carson with so small a supply. The
cost of maintaining the institution was therefore above 7 per cent of the
value of the gold handled there. The total gold product of Nevada in
the calendar year 1897 was $2,976,400, from which it appears that
four-fifths of the product of that State are more conveniently deposited
elsewhere than at Carson, and it may be inferred that the remainder
might go to other places without serious inconvenience to the producer.
The deposits now made at Carson could be received and treated at the
San Francisco mint without increasing the expense of the latter institution to exceed $1,000 per year. It is, therefore, recommended that
the mint at Carson be discontinued. If it is considered desirable
to continue an assay office there, and the institution can be relieved of
the care of the silver dollars now on storage in it, the annual outlay can
be reduced to about $12,000.
The assay office at St. Louis received during the last fiscal year gold
deposits amounting to $105,960.98, and in the previous year $97,938.26.
In each case old jewelry furnished one-half of the sum. The office is
scarcely of sufficient importance to the mining industry or to the general public to warrant the expense of maintaining it, which last year
was about $4,700. The saving which might be made by abolishing this
office and the mint at Carson would assist in meeting the new outlay
incurred by establishing an office at Seattle.
Building for Seattle assay office.—The assay office at Seattle, during
the first four months after opening for deposits, has received
$5,478,550 worth of gold. It is probable that it will be one of the most
important offices of the Mint Service. It is now located in a rented
building, without such provisions for the safe-keeping of treasure as
ought to be provided. It is, therefore, recommended that Congress
provide for the erection of a suitable building there for the assay office.
An appropriate building can be provided at a cost of not over $50,000.
Deficiencies in the bullion accounts of the mints.—Attention is respectfully called to the deficits in the bullion accounts of the mints at San
Francisco, Philadelphia, New Orleans, and Carson, amounting in the
aggregate to $530,681.67.
The deficits in the accounts of the mint at San Francisco amountecj

to $416,587.90. Of this sum, $152,327.03 occurred in 1856, and the
remainder, $264,260.87, between 1864 and 1871, all arising from excessive wastage of the operative officers, loss on sale of sweeps, annual
assay coins being used in the purchase of supplies, and embezzlement of
employees.
The amount of the deficit in the accounts of the mint at New Orleans
is $25,000, and is alleged to be due to the destruction of that sum in
cuirency by fire in the cashier^s vault in June, 1893.
The deficit in the accounts of the mint at Philadelphia is $13,543.82.
Of this sum, $12,810.82 is a balance of gold bullion embezzled by the
weigh clerk in 1893, not recovered, and $733, a shortage found in the
account of silver dollars on storage.
The deficit in the bullion accounts of the mint at Carson is $75,549.75,
and is due to the embezzlement of that sum by former employees in the
melter and refiner^s office, and was effected by the abstraction and substitution of metal of low fineness in gold for metal of a higher fineness.
The weigh clerk of the mint at Philadelphia, guilty of embezzling gold
bullion, and the assistant melter and refiner and the silver dissolver at
the Carson mint are now undergoing terms of imprisonment for their
crimes. ^
These deficiencies are classed as unavailable assets. Their designa^
tion, year after year, as assets of any kind is objectionable. The
amounts they represent are gone beyond reasonable possibility of recovery. It does not comport with the accuracy which should characterize
good bookkeeping and well-ordered accounts and the example of precision which the Government should at all times maintain that these
so-called assets, which are not such in any sense of the word, should be
kept on the books for periods varying from five to more than forty years.
It is recommended that Congress relieve the Treasurer of the United
States and the respective mints from carrying the amount of these
deficits in their accounts.
BUREAU OF ENGRAYING AND PRINTING.

If any justification were needed for the maintenance of an establishment of this kind in connection with the Treasury Department, it was
fully supplied by the prompt manner in which the Bureau furnished the
stamps and securities required under the war-revenue act. This act
was approved June 13, 1898, and took effect immediately upon its passage as to the change of tax on beer, tobacco, cigars, cigarettes, and
snuff, thus practically destroying the three-months' stock ofstamps in the
hands of collectors of internal revenue and the Commissioner of Internal
Eevenue, besides completed and incompleted work in the Bureau.
Stamps for issue under the new act were delivered to the Commissioner
of Internal Eevenue by the Bureau on the morning of the 14th of
June, 1898, As to the stamps for special taxes, for documents, fo?:

medicines, and for mixed flour, the law allowed but seventeen days for
the engraving and printing and distribution thereof. Within this time
the Bureau had furnished a sufficient number of stamps to supply the
immediate demands of the public, and by August 1, 1898, had furnished
all that were required by law as a reserve stock in the hands of collectors and the Commissioner of Internal Eevenue. By July 1, 1898, the
Bureau was delivering 20,000,000 documentary and proprietary stamps
alone daily, and by September 17, 1898, the Commissioner of Internal
Eevenue had ordered their delivery stopped.
The Bureau was equally as prompt in the delivery of the bonds
required under this act, supplying the several denominations in quantities required by the Department and upon the dates set for the
delivery of the same.
The amount of work required by the exigencies existing could
only have been executed within the time allotted by extraordinary
exertions. It was fortunate that the Government had an establishment for the execution of this work so thoroughly equipped as the
Bureau, under the supervision of its own officers, who were responsible
to the Secretary of the Treasury for the prompt and efficient performance of duty. Had the Department been required to procure
the stamps and securities from private parties, it would not have been
able to control the work to the extent it did, and it is believed would not
so promptly have received the needed stamps and securities.
The officers and employees of the Bureau are entitled to the thanks
of the Department for the exertions made in this emergency. Many of
the expert employees of the Bureau, whose services could not be duplicated, cheerfully worked from sixteen to eighteen hours a day.
In addition to the special service rendered, as above described, the
Bureau furnished, in an economical manner, the securities and stamps
required in the transaction of the regular business of the Department.
The recommendation made in my last annual report, that Congress
make provision for the entire expense of the work of the Bureau by
direct appropriations, instead of, as at present, requiring a part of
them to be paid by transfer of funds from other appropriations on bills
rendered, is renewed.
It is desired to emphasize the necessity for an appropriation for a
substantial brick outbuilding for the Bureau, to take the place of the
temporary wooden sheds now used. This matter has heretofore been
called to the attention of Congress, and full explanation of the necessity
for the appropriation has been made in the annual reports of the Secretary for a number of years.
PUBLIC MONEYS.

The monetary transactions of the Government have been conducted
through the Treasurer of the United States^, 9 subtreasury officers, and

194 national-bank depositaries. The amount of public moneys held by
them on June 30, 1898, including those to the credit of the Treasurer's
general account and United States disbursing officers, was $38,743,017.17,
an increase since June 30,1897, in amount of holdings of $22,784,283.35.
Since the beginning of the present fiscal year deposits on account
of the new 3 per cent war loan have been received to the amount of
$200,000,000, and in order to avoid a dangerous stringency which
might be created by a too-rapid absorption of funds into the Treasury,
a large number of national banks were designated, under section 5153,
Eevised Statutes, as depositaries of public moneys, and public funds deposited therewith temporarily, thereby increasing the holdings of
such depositaries to an amount exceeding $90,000,000.
NATIONAL BANKS.

During the existence of the national banking system up to the close
of the year ended October 31, 1898, 5,151 national banks were organized. The number inoperation is 3,598. Of the closed associations,
1,194 were placed in voluntary liquidation by the shareholders, and 359,
insolvent, in charge of receivers. On October 31, 1897, there were in
active operation 3,617 associations. During the past year 56 were organized, 69 placed in voluntary liquidation, and 7 failed, including one
of the banks in liquidation, above referred to, making a net reduction
during that period of 19 banks.
The authorized capital stock of the banks = on October 31, 1898,
was $624,552,195; the circulation outstanding, $239,546,281, bf which
$210,045,456 is secured by bonds and $29,500,825 by lawful money
deposited with the Treasurer of the United States on account of liquidating and insolvent associations, and those reducing circulation. A
comparison of the circulation account on October 31, 1898, with October 31, 1897, shows an increase of $9,582,771 in the total amount of
circulation outstanding, and of $6,119,776 in circulation secured by
bonds.
The capital of the 56 banks organized during the past year aggregates
$9,665,000. Geographically, the Middle States lead both in the number
of banks and the aggregate capital, viz, 22 and $3,960,000, respectively.
Seven were organized in Ohio, 6 in Iowa, 5 in Illinois, 2 in Missouri,
and 1 each in Indiana and Wisconsin. In the aggregate amount of
capital the Pacific States are second. Two banks in California were
capitalized in the aggregate for $3,500,000, and the new and first bank
in Alaska for $50,000. Sixteen associations were formed in the Eastern
States, with an aggregate capital of $1,185,000; Pennsylvania leading
with 8, followed by New York, 4 ; New Jersey, 2; Delaware and
Maryland, 1 each. In the Southern division, 8 banks, with capital of
$620,000, were organized ; Texas leads with 4, and 1 bank was organized
in each of the States of Yirginia;, North Carolina, South Carolina, a-ncj



HEPORT O F

THE SECRETAiiY OF THE TREASUK. XXXVII

Kentucky. The banks created in the Western States number 6, and are
capitalized for $300,000. Three of these banks are in the Indian Territory, 2 in Kansas, and I in Oklahoma. The only bank organized in
the New England States is located in New Hampshire, and has a capital
of $50,000.
Since July 12, 1882, the date of the passage of the act providing for
the extension of the corporate existence of national banks, the charters
of 1;670 have been extended, their capital aggregating $407,531,115.
In the past year the corporate existence of 20 associations, with capital
aggregating $2,145,000, was extended. Three associations, the corporate existence of which expired, liquidated, although two of them
reorganized under different titles. During the coming year 22 banks,
with capital amounting to $3,155,000, will reach the close of their
corporate existence. The capital and circulation of the 1,134 banks,
the charters of which will expire during the ten years ending with
1908, amount, respectively, to $162,418,150 and $44,293,753.
The capital of the 69 banks placed in voluntary liquidation during
the year, exclusive of that of the one subsequently declared insolvent,
amounted to $12,509,000, and the capital ofthe 7 insolvent associations
$1,200,000.
The last reports of condition of the 3,585 national banks, made September 20, 1898, show that the aggregate resources were $4,003,511,044.87,
an increase since October 5, 1897, of $298,377,337.16. Loans and discounts, including overdrafts, have increased $105,743,496.64, and they
now aggregate $2,172,519,610.54. Government securities on hand and
deposited with the Treasurer of the United States to secure circulation
and public deposits amount to $358,140,277, an increase of $80,904,357.
Gold holdings have increased $54,775,318.33, but, owing t o t h e reduction of the amount of currency certificates, the net increase in amount of
specie and other lawful money is but $31,839,827.34, the total currency heldl
amounting to $420,722,458.39. The banks' individual deposits have risen
to $2,031,454,540.29, an increase during the year of $178,105,411.79.
The surplus and profit accounts have increased $5,818,205.60. The
reduction of 25 in the number of reporting banks is accompanied by
a reduction of $9,970,200 in capital and $4,436,904.50 in circulation.
The number of banks and capital stock in each geographical divisiouy

banks and bankers, amount to $4,631,328,357 j loans and discounts,
$2,480,874,360; and deposits, $3,664,797,296. Combining these amounts
with similar items in the national bank statements, July 14, 1898, the
following results are shown: Aggregate resources, $8,609,003,802; loans
and discounts, $4,632,632,015; and deposits, $5,741,023,872.
LOANS AND CURRENOY.

The interest-bearing debt July 1, 1897, included unmatured United
States bonds oatstanding in the amount of $847,320,000. No material
change appeared in the debt statements in the fiscal year ended June
30, 1898, but on June 13 a circular was published inviting public subscriptions for $200,000,000 3.per cent bonds authorized b y t h e actof
June 13, 1898.
The public response to this invitation was not confined to any section,
of the country, and during the thirty days prescribed in the circular as
the period for subscriptions there were received 232,224, of $500 and
less, accompanied by full payment for the bonds, and over 88,000, in
sums greater than $500, accompanied in each instance by a deposit
of 2 per cent of the amount subscribed. The total of subscriptions
of $500 and less was $100,444,560, and the total in greater amounts
than $500, including certain proposals guarantying the loan, amounted
in the aggregate to more than $1,400,000,000.
As provided by the circular, the allotment of bonds to subscribers of
amounts greater thsin $500 began immediately upon the close of the
books July 14, the smallest subscriptions being first allotted until those
of $4,400 and less had been reached. There was a residue, ascertained
to be about two million and a half dollars, which was allotted pro rata
among the subscribers of $4,500, each subscriber for that amount being
awarded the sum of $1,300. On page LXXX will be found a statement
showing the number of subscribers, by groups, for amounts over $500,
and $500 and less.
The bonds were dated August 1, 1898, and their preparation was
carried on as rapidly as possible. Soon after that date the Department
began their delivery, subscribers for $500 and less being the first to
receive their bonds substantially in the order of the receipt and acceptance of their subscriptions. The delivery of the bonds to subscribers
of this class was practically completed about the 1st of September,
though there are still some undelivered, owing to incomplete address
or some other irregularity not yet adjusted.
Before the delivery of the bonds to subscribers of $500 and less had
been completed, the Department began the delivery on account of
greater subscriptions. This has continued to the present time, and is
still in progress, as subscriptions amounting to about $2,000,000 are
still in part unpaid under that provision of the circular of June 13 which
provided for payments in installments of 20 per cent at intervals of
forty days.

The changes in the amounts of the several kinds of money in the
United States, outside the Treasury, between November 1, 1897, and
November 1, 1898, are shown in the following table. The estimated
population ofthe United States November 1, 1897, was 73,461,000, and
the per capita supply of money outside the Treasury was $23.23. The
estimated population and per capita supply of money November 1,
1898, were 75,059,000 and $24.87, respectively.

FOREIGN COMMERCE.

The foreign commerce of the fiscal year 1898 in many respects has
been phenomenal. The exportations of the products of both field
and factory exceeded in value those of any preceding year, and the
grand total of exports was the largest ever recorded.- For the first time
in the history of our foreign commerce, the year's exportations averaged
more than $100,000,000 per month, the total being $1,231,482,330,
against $1,050,993,556 in 1897 and $1,030,278,148 in 1892, no other
years having reached the billion-dollar line.
Of our domestic exports, the value of agricultural products was
$853,683,570, surpassing by $54,355,338 the highest record ever before
made, that of 1892. Our manufacturers also made their highest record
of exports, those for the year being $290,697,354, against $277,285,391
in the preceding year. For the first time also in the history of our
foreign commerce, the exports of domestic manufactures were greater
than the imports of foreign manufactures, while the total exports of the
year were twice as great as the total imports—a condition heretofore
unknown, the trade balance in our favor being more than twice as great
as that of any former year. Nearly all branches of the great manufacturing industries shared in this increase of the export trade, particularly
manufactures of iron and steel, leather, boots and shoes, and mineral
oils, the principal exception being cotton goods, the demand for which
was somewhat reduced by the fact that certain countries formerly
buying our manufactured goods are now buying our raw cotton for use
in their own factories. Nearly all classes of the great agricultural products made their highest record of exports in the past year. The value
of the wheat and flour exported was greater than in any preceding year,



XL

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

except 1892; the quantity of cotton, corn, and oats surpassed in each
case that of any preceding year, and the exports of meat and dairy
products, grouped under the general head of provisions, exceeded in
value those of any former year.
The prices realized on nearly all important articles of export were
higher than in the preceding year, the notable exceptions being cotton
and mineral oils, in each of which the production in the United States,
the world's chief producer of these articles, has been in the past few
years phenomenally large, thus affecting the prices abroad as well as at
home.
In importations, the year has shown an equally remarkable record,
the value of foreign imports being less than in any previous year, with
a single exception, 1880, though the population has increased 50 per
cent since that time. The total imports were but $616,049,654 in value,
against $764,730,412 in the preceding year, and $779,724,674 a year
earlier. The falling off was almost entirely in manufactures and articles
of food. The importation of woolen manufactures was $14,823,771,
against $49,162,992 in the preceding year; of cotton goods, $27,267,300,
against $34,429,363 in 1897; of manufactures of iron and steel,
$12,626,431, against $16,094,557 in the preceding year; of earthenware
and china, $6,687,360, against $9,977,297 a year earlier; of glass
and glassware, $3,782,617, against $5,603,868 in 1897 ; and of tin plate,
$3,809,148, against $5,344,638 in the preceding year.
The year's record of the imports and exports of the precious metals
was also an unusual one. The importations of gold were greater than
in any preceding year in the history of the country, and the exports
smaller than in any year in the present decade, making the net
importations the largest ever known. The total imports of gold were
$120,391,674 and the exports $15,406,391, the net imports being
$104,985,283, the largest in any preceding year being $97,466,127 in 1881,
while on only twelve previous occasions since 1850 have the year's
imports of gold equaled the exports. The importation of silver, most
of which comes into the country in lead ore and base bullion, amounted
to $30,927,781 in value, against $30,533,227 in 1897 and $28,777,186 in
1896, while the exportation of the year amounted to $55,105,239 in value,
against $61,946,638 in the preceding year.
This satisfactory condition of our foreign trade extended t© our commerce with practically every nation and all the great geographical
divisions. Our sales to Europe alone increased $160,420,601, while
our purchases from that section of the globe decreased $124,258,514;
and to all the great divisions, except Oceanica, there was an increased
sale, and from all, except Asia and Oceanica, decreased imports. Our
exports to Asia show a gratifying gain, those of 1898 having been
$44,707,791, against $25,630,029 in 1896 and $11,645,703 in 1880, thus
having quadrupled since 1880, and nearly doubled within two years.

CUSTOMS.

Eeorganization of districts.
Attention is invited to the recommendation contained in my last
annual report for the reorganization of customs districts and the discontinuance of useless ports. Every business consideration demands
that a reorganization of these districts should be effected, and the recommendation is renewed.
Special agents.
During the last fiscal year the special agents have examined the conduct of customs business and the personnel of the Gustoms Service,
as prescribed in section 2649, Eevised Statutes, in 86 customs districts
and independent ports. They have recommended many reductions in
the expense of maintaining the Customs Service, some of which have
already been approved by the Department, while others are still
under consideration. The special agents are usually called upon to
report on proposed increases in the expenses of the Service, and their
reports aid greatly in economical administration. Attention is
invited to the report of the Supervising Special Agent, where a
detailed statement of the work accomplished by the special agents
will be found.
Operations of the tariff
Domestic industrial enterprises are unquestionably benefited by the
tariff act of 1897, designed as well to encourage home industrie^as to
increase the revenues of the Government. By reason of the fact that
importers, anticipating the passage of the act referred to, provided themselves with large stocks of merchandise of every description, the tariff
of 1897 can notcbe regarded as fairly tested bythe receipts immediately
following its passage. As an illustration of the correctness of this view,
it maybe stated that during the first four months of the fiscal year 1899
the receipts from customs (exclusive of the duty on tea provided by the



XLTV

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

war-revenue law) amounted to $62,776,080, which is $4,633,026 in excess
ofthe receipts for a similar period in any year since 1892.
A reciprocal commercial agreement has been entered into^ between
the United States and France, under the provisions of section 3 of the
tariff act of 1897, and negotiations with a similar object in view are in
progress with other countries.
Undervaluations.
Special efforts have been made during the past year to detect and
prevent undervaluations, and it is believed that much has been accomplished in that direction. The practice which many foreign manufacturers and wholesale dealers have resorted to of consigning their goods
to branch houses or agencies in this country at prices, in many instances,
far below the actual market value, has proven so profitable that in
certain lines of goods sales have been refused to our American merchants in the foreign market, and they have been compelled to buy of
the consignee of the foreign house in this country. During the past
year a special officer of the Department was sent to Europe for the purpose of thoroughly investigating the methods of manufacture, cost of production, and the manner of invoicing a certain line of goods sent to
this country almost exclusively on consignment, and which, there was
^ reason to believe, was largely undervalued on importation, but concerning which accurate data could not be obtained here. As a result of his
inquiries, it was .ascertained that the practice of invoicing the goods at
prices far below the actual foreign market value was general among
manufacturers and shippers, and in a number of instances the goods
were invoiced below the cost of production. Efforts are being vigorously made to prevent the abuses resulting from the system above
referred to, which not only entails loss to the revenue, but results in
injury to honest importers.
Board of General Appraisers.
The Board of General Appraisers reports that during the past year
its office received 16,969 protests on classification, 3,464 appeals to
reappraisement by one general appraiser, 1,053 appeals to reappraisement by a board of three general appraisers, and 284 protests against
rejection of teas, and has decided 19,213 protests on classification, 4,337
appeals to reappraisement, and 278 tea protests. The Board adds, in
its report, that—
The habit of undervaluation is still persistent, especially in consigned merchandise. In our report for the eleven months ended October 1, 1895, we considered the subject of undervaluation exhaustively,
quoting Secretary of the Treasury Fairchild in support" of the proposition that the abuse was more prevalent fifteen years ago than at the
date of the report cited. This may have been too sanguine a view,
though we are still of the opinion that the evil is in process of ultimate

o

extinction, notwithstanding the fact that there are now pending consignment cases involving very large, if not entire, lines of merchandise,
as in 1895, about which such wide differences of opinion regarding
values exist as to render confiicting opinions inevitable. It follows
that the question of the adjustment of values in reappraisement cases
is the most difficult one in which the Board is called upon to act.
The Department divided the work of the General Board into two
separate divisions or departments on October 22, 1897. These are
known as the classification and reappraisement divisions.
The division of classification has decided over 19,000 protests in the
past year, as against about 8,800 in 1897, and about 21,000 in 1896,
when two Boards were in charge of this branch of the work.
The whole number of appeals taken from decisions ofthe Board to the
United States circuit court for the southern district of New York since
October 1, 1897, is 184, as against 122 for the period covered by the
report of last year.' Many of these appeals, however, are said to be
upon like claims and contentions, having been thus taken to save the
right of the appellants.
Where appeals are taken to the United States circuit court from a
Board decision, under the provisions of section 15 of the act of J u n e 10,
1890, other protests involving the same issues are, on the request of
either party, placed on the file of ^ suspended cases," and kept there
^
until these issues, are finally settled by judicial determination. The
number of suspended cases now pending is something over 35,000, as
against about 40,000 in the year 1897. As many as about 4,000, however,
involve but a single subject, and eight subjects cover as many as 12,000
or 13,.000 of these protests.
The Board calls attention to the number of protests received during
the first twelve months after the enactment of each of the tariff acts of
1890,1894, and 1897, respectively. Leaving out the very large number
involved in the constitutionality of the McKinley Act of 1890 (over
32,000), the date on which the Wilson Act of 1894 went into effect
(over 3,600), and the time the Dingley Act of 1897'became operative
(over 900), the Board summarizes as follows: Under act of 1890,13,800
protests were filed; under act of 1894, 20,130 ; and under act of 1897,
12,149.
It will thus appear that customs litigation has apparently lessened
under the operations of the tariff act of 1897.
ALASKA.

Sale of liquor.
The enforcement of the law governing the importation, manufacture,
and sale of intoxicating liquors in the Territory of Alaska is so difficult, and the subject of so much importance to that rapidly developing
country and to the Government, that it is treated Qf here at greater
length than otherwise would be justified.



XLVI

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.
o

The law which regulates the introduction and sale of liquor in Alaska
is found in section 1955 of the Eevised Statutes, which authorizes the
President to restrict and regulate, or to prohibit, its importation and
use in the Territory, and in section 14 of the act of May 17,1884, which
continues in force the previous law, except as thereby modified, prohibits the importation, manufacture, and sale of intoxicating liquors in
Alaska, except for medicinal, mechanical, and scientific purposes, and
authorizes the President to provide for the enforcement of this act by
regulations. The regulations at present in force are those dated,
respectively, February 26, 1885, March 12, 1892, and June 24, 1898.
The first provides that the manufacture of liquor within the district of
Alaska shall be only for medicinal, mechanical, and scientific purposes,
and upon a license from the governor. The second forbids the sale of
liquor within the district except for the purposes above indicated, and
only upon a license to be issued by the governor. The third forbids
the shipment of liquor from the United States or its introduction into
Alaska except upon a permit from the collector of customs at Sitka,
and then only when the liquor is intended for medicinal, mechanical,
scientific, or sacramental purposes. The authority of the collector to
enforce all the liquor laws and regulations is derived from section 1957
pf the Eevised Statutes, as amended by section 14 of the act of May 17,
1884.
To prevent the shipment of liquors to Alaska iri violation of law,
officers of the Department at porfcs on the Pacific Coast carefully
examine the cargoes and manifests of all vessels bound for Alaska
and seize all liquors found intended for illegal introduction into the
Territory. The collector of customs for Alaska has been active in
seizing liquors illegally landed, which are exposed for sale in the Territory. He sent to Portland, Oreg., recently, in one shipment, for sale,
over eighty tons of seized liquors. Because of the almost universal
demand for liquor in that locality and the large profits to be derived
from its sale, groat quantities find their way into the district and are
to be obtained in saloons.
Shipments of liquor are made from the United States under all manner of subterfuge—disguised as medicinal compounds, catchup, etc.,
inclosed in shipments of merchandise, hidden in the coal in steamers'
bunkers, and even placed on board the ships, after they have cleared,
by small boats which put out from shore at night. It is impossible to '
effectually prevent these practices without the use of swift seagoing
vessels and a large additional force of employees.
The collector is virtually powerless to enforce the law restricting the
introduction and sale of liquor within the Territory, by reason of tllfce cooperation and sympathy of almost the entire population of Alaska with
those who violate the law, and of the failure of juries in Alaska to indict
and convict after discovery and arrests have been made. It has been
reported to the Department that for a nuniber of years ^ot one copvio


REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

XLVII

tion for violation of the liquor law was had in the courts in that district,
and that a former district j udge had stated openly, and while he was occupying that high office, that no jury in Alaska would convict any person
who violated the law. Information has also been received that where
customs officers have seized liquors in saloons and reported the facts to
the United States attorney, the grand jury either failed to find true bills
or the cases were compromised by the payment of small fines, and the
liquor dealers resumed their business with fresh supplies. In view
of the constant liability to seizure, but a small quantity of liquor
is reported to be kept in the respective saloons, the main supply being
carefully hidden and drawn from as occasion requires, so that a seizure
by a customs officer means little to the saloon keeper.
The remedy for the situation, it is believed, may be found in the
repeal of the present laws and the provision by Congress of a highlicense system for the Territory. It has been demonstrated that the
sale of liquor in Alaska can not be effectually prohibited under present regulations, by reason of the almost universal adverse public sentiment, and it would seem, therefore, the wiser course to confine it
within such bounds as would insure its regulation by the Government.
Salmon fisheries.
Owing to the use of the vessels of the Eevenue Cutter Service in the
recent war with Spain, it was not possible to assign a revenue cutter to
the work of inspecting the various salmon canneries of Alaska and of
transporting from place to place the two agents authorized by law for
that purpose. Notwithstanding this fact, these agents were enabled to
visit, by use of the ordinary means of transportation, all the canneries,
with the exception of six, to observe the methods used by the canners in taking fish, and to ascertain whether or not the supply of salmon
was diminishing.
While it is too early at this time to furnish accurate statistics with
regard to the salmon pack of last season, it is stated, in a preliminary
report, by the agent for the fisheries that the output of the canneries will
approximate one million cases, and will at least equal that of last year,
and that, with the exception of Karluk Eiver, the run of salmon has
not diminished.
During the past year, acting under the authority contained in the act
of June 9, 1896, fishing for salmon for commercial purposes was prohibited in Karluk Eiver, it appearing that the supply of fish in that
river was being rapidly exhausted.
I n accordance with the suggestion in my last report that additional
legislation was necessary for the proper protection of the salmon streams,
a draft of a new law embodying such changes as were thought requisite
to that end was prepared and submitted to Congress. The attention of
Congress is again invited to this subject.



XLVIII

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

Seal herd.
Since the passage of the act of December 29, 1897, prohibiting the
taking of fur seals by citizens or subjects of the United States, or the
fitting out in the United States of any vessel for the purpose of taking
seals in the waters of the Pacific Ocean north of the thirty-fifth degree
of north latitude, there has been no pelagic sealing in the prohibited
area by any vessels sailing under the flag pf the United States. Since
the passage of the above act only one American vessel has taken pelagic
skins from the so-called Alaska herd, and as the vessel had cleared
from this country prior to the passage of the act, and her log showed all
skins taken south of the thirty-fifth degree, her catch of 1 male and 335
female skins was allowed entry at San Francisco.
The British sealing fleet, however, has continued its operations during the past year, both on the northwest coast and in Bering Sea. From
the copy of the approved minutes of the Canadian privy council, transmitted to this Government in accordance with the provisions of the
Paris award, it appears that 30 British sealing vessels operated on the
northwest coast during the past spring, as compared with 32 British
vessels sealing during the spring previous. The total catch during the
spring of 1898 was 10,581, including ^a canoe catch by Indians of 526,
as against 6,100 skins taken by the same fleet during the season of 1897,
which number included a canoe catch of 1,018. This would give an
average catch per schooner for the spring of 1898 of 335 skins, as against
an average catch of 159 for each vessel during the spring of 1897, or an
increased catch per vessel of over 100 per cent. The number of British
vessels sealing in Bering Sea, or their catch there, during the past
summer, is not known, the reports from the British Government upon
that subject not having been received.
The reason for this greatly increased spring catchi as compared with
last year can not be found in an increase in the numbers of the Alaska
herd of seals, but in the fact that, the former American fleet no longer
operating, fewer vessels took seals within a given area. Indeed, the
advance reports which have been received by the Department from
Special Agent Murray, late in charge of the seal islands, and from Mr.
C. H. Townsend, an assistant to the Commissioner of Fish and Fisheries, detailed to the seal islands during the past summer to note the
condition of the rookeries, show a most apparent decrease in the number
of seals frequenting the islands. From the report of Mr. Murray it
appears that, owing to a scarcity of seals, only 18,047 young male seals
could be killed out of the quota of 30,000 allowed, and that the number
taken was secured only after every effort had been made to obtain the
full quota. In 1897, 21,013 seals were killed on the islands and their
skins accepted.
The only hope for the preservation of the Pribilof Islands herd of
seals, it is believed, lies in the complete cessation of pelagic sealing.



REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

XLIX

With this accomplished, and .the breeding females allowed to bring
forth their young without molestation from deep-sea hunting, natural
causes will operate to bring about a rehabilitation of the rookeries and
restore a valuable industry to its former importance.
Certain questions having arisen as to the amount of the taxes, rental,
and bonus due on the seal skins taken from the Pribilof Islands by the
present lessee, the North American Commercial Company, suit was
brought in the circuit court for the southern district of New York to
recover the amount due for the year ended April 1, 1894. The claim
of the Government was :
Annual rental
Revenuetax on 7,500 skins, at $2
Per capita, at$7.62J, on 7,500 skins
Total.

$60,000.00
15, 000.00
57,187.50

".

132,187.50

The company claimed that it was entitled, under section 1962, Eevised
Statutes, to a reduction in the rent and per capita in proportion that the
number of skins taken bears to 100,000. The case having been carried to
the Supreme Court of the United States on appeal, that court sustained
the contention of the lessee with regard to the reduction of the rental of
$60,000, but their claim that the bonus or per capita should be proportionately abated was rejected, and judgment in favor of the Government
was rendered for $76,687.50, representing the amount which the lessee
should pay for the year ended April 1, 1894, with interest and costs.
Pending the decision in this case, the company offered each year as
payment became due a sum equal to what it considered to be due under
the lease. These offers were rejected. Since the decision the lessee has
paid, in addition to the amount of the above judgment, the deferred payments for the years ended April 1, 1895-1898, both inclusive, based on
the terms of the decision, amounting to $836,374.32.
A demand has been made upon the company for the payment of
$78,860.05, representing interest on the deferred payments stated above,
exclusive of the amount covered by the judgment of the Supreme Court.
Payment of this interest is still under consideration by the lessee.

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

The total cost of collection for the .fiscal year ended June 30, 1898,
was $3,907,010.50; the total cost of collection for the fiscal year ended
June 30, 1897, was $3,848,469.49, showing an increase forthe fiscal year
ended June 30, 1898, of $58,541.01.
The amounts given as receipts are those actually collected during
the fiscal years mentioned, but in many cases the money collected on
the last day of June is not deposited until the 1st day of July, thus
causing a discrepancy between the collections and deposits for the year.
A detailed statement of the receipts and expenditures will be -found
in the report of the Commissioner of Internal Eevenue.
The percentage cost of collection for the fiscal year ended June 30,
1898, was 2.29 per cent, as against 2.62 per cent for thefiscal^year ended
June 30, 1897.
The total production of distilled spirits, exclusive of fruit brandies, for
the fiscal year ended June 30,1898, was 80,762,213 taxable gallons; the
total production for the fiscal year ended June 30, 1897, was 62,465,648
taxable gallons, showing an increase in production for the fiscal year
just ended of 18,296,565 gallons. There were also produced 427,342
gallons of apple brandy, 33,680 gallons of peach brandy, 2,443,363 gallons of grape brandy, 181 gallons of pear brandy, 190 gallons of apricot
brandy, 161 gallons of berry brandy, and 1,281 gallons of prune brandy,
making a total production of 2,906,198 gallons from fruits during the year.
A further comparison of the two fiscal years shows an increase of
128,421 gallons in the production of apple brandy, an increase of 16,429
gallons in the production of peach brandy, an increase of 947,677 gallons in the production of grape brandy, a decrease of 409 gallons in the
production of pear brandy, a decrease of 93 gallons in the production
pf orange brandy, an increase of 190 gallons in the production of apricot
brandy, an increase of 48 gallons in the production of berry brandy,
and an increase of 508 gallons in the production of prune brandy, for
the fiscal year ended June 30, 1898, an aggregate increase of 1,092,771
gallons produced from fruits as compared with the previous fiscal year.
The quantity of distilled spirits gauged during the fiscal j^ear ehded
June 30,1898, was 287,522,075 gallons ; the quantity gauged during the
fiscal year ended June 30, 1897, was 246,096,921 gallons, making an
increase for the year just ended of 41,425,154 gallons.
Duringthe fiscal year ended June 30, 1898, 4,720 distilleries of all
kinds were operated; for the preceding fiscal year 3,158 distilleries of
all kinds were operated, a comparison showing an increase of 1,562
for the year just ended.
During the fiscal year ended June 30, 1898, there were produced
37,529,339 barrels of beer; the number of barrels produced during
the fiscalyear ended June 30, 1897,was 34,462,822, making an increased
production for the year just ended of 3,066,517 barrels.
For the fiscal year ended June 30, 1898, the total receipts from the
taxes on tobacco, cigars, cigarettes, snuff, etc., were $36,230,522.37.

The receipts from the same sources for the fiscal year ended Jurie 30,
1897, were $30,710,297.42, showing an increase of $5,520,224.95 for the
year ended June 30, 1898.
PUBLIC BUILDINGS.

During the past year work has been prosecuted on 43 buildings,
including extensions to buildings, etc., marine hospitals, and quarantine
stations, of which 15 have been completed. No new buildings have
been authorized since the last report, legislation enacted simply embracing extensions to the temporary post-office at Chicago, the improvement
of the old custom-house, etc., at Detroit, Mich., and the extension of
limit of cost of the United States post-office, court-house, and customhouse at St. Paul, Minn. The number of buildings, therefore, under the

Since the date of the last report effect has been given to the requirement of the act approved February 20, 1893, in relation to securing
competitive designs for public buildings, by inviting competition in
designs for court-hoase and post-office, Norfolk, Va.; post-office, customhouse, etc., Camden, N. J.; immigrant station, Ellis Island, New York
Harbor; and contracts have been entered into for the preparation of
drawings, specifications, etc., forming the basis for the invitation of
proposals for the erection of the buildings named.
Active building operations have as yet, however, been commenced
on only one, that being the immigrant building at Ellis Island. It is

too early./therefore, to form any just opinion as to the probable results
as to cost or successful administration. The accepted drawings for this
building, however, were highly creditable, and displayed careful thought
and study on the part of the successful architects.
Sail of records.
The necessity for a hall of records in this city, in which may be safely
stored, against accident from fir^, the large accumulation of valuable
documents which now encumber the files of this and coordinate Departments, is again called to the attention of Congress. The Secretary of
War, in 1878, called attention to the dangerous situation of records of
great value in the Qaartermaster-General's office.
At various times Congress has recognized the situation and has
enacted legislation, the earliest being in the sundry civil bill, approved
August 7, 1882, in which the Supervising Architect of this Department
was directed to make a report to the following session of Congress in
regard to the matter. The Supervising Architect, on January 17, 1883,
reported in favor of a site known as ^'Armory Square," between Sixth
and Seventh streets SW. Plans and specifications were prepared for
the^ building on this square, and it was estimated that the probable
cost would be $1,036,054.
Under date of December 19, 1883, the President transmitted to Congress a communication from the Secretary of War, setting forth the
necessity for a fireproof building, and renewed the recommendations
of former years. An interval of nearly ten years then elapsed without any further action being taken, either by Congress or by the Executive Departments.
In April, 1896, the Secretary of the Treasury addressed letters to the
Committees on Pablic Buildings and Grounds, referring to House Bill
NQ. 7614, then under consideration in the House Committee, reiterating
the necessity for the construction of such a building.
The act of Congress approved June 11, 1896, directed the Secretary
of the Treasury to submit to Congress a plan giving the size and general characteristics of a structure to be used as a hall of records in
this city. He was required to confer with the heads of the various
Departments, and inquire into and report upon the suitableness of a
site for such a building on the public reservation at the intersection of
Ohio and Louisiana avenues with Tenth and Twelfth streets, or any
other grounds located in the city within a reasonable distance from the
Departments.
January 7, 1897, a report from the Secretary of the Treasury was
presented to the President of the Senate, intimating that the reservation
mentioned was conveniently located as a site for the building. Final
' report could not then be made, however, by reason of the fact that questions had arisen concerning the character of the soil and the practica


REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

LIII

bility of securing satisfactory foundations. It was also necessary, in
order to pursue the inquiry, that an appropriation be made for that
purpose.
January 4, 1898, the Secretary of the Treasury addressed a letter to the
Secretary of the Senate Committee on Public Buildings and.Grounds,
reporting on the Senate bill authorizing the acquisition of a site at the
corner of Ohio avenue and Fifteenth street. It was said that.until it
could be definitely determined by tests, borings, etc., that the site at
the intersection of Ohio and Louisiana avenues with Tenth and Twelfth
streets was not available for the erection of a hall of records thereon,
the Department did not feel justified in recommending the purchase of
a site for such building. The proposed site at Fifteenth street and Ohio
avenue seemed also to be somewhat remote when considered in connection with the Capitol and Interior Department.
January 14,1898, the Secretary of the Treasury addressed a letter to
the Speaker of the House, transmitting tentative plans for a building at
the intersection of Ohio and Louisiana avenues with Tenth and Twelfth
streets.
Before any definite conclusion is reached as to the location of the
building, careful consideration should be given to the fact that locating
the building on land at the intersection of Ohio and Louisiana avenues
with Tenth and Twelfth streets would entail great expense for foundations, and would be most unfortunate, for the reason that that section of
the city is subject, at intervals, to inundations.
The expressions of urgency so frequently met with in annual reports
from the accounting officers justify the greatest insistency from the
Treasury Department in its recommendations for a new and proper hall
of records. It is a public necessity. The custody of the files of this
and other Executive Departments is a matter involving most jealous
care. The officials and employees are trained to look upon the preservation of records as a high duty. For many years the Treasury Department has kept its files in the Treasury building, but it finally became
so engorged as to interfere materially with the working force, and it
became necessary to secure another place of storage. A building at
1707 New York avenue has been leased. It is not fireproof, nor is it
possible to obtain a fireproof building suitable for the purpose. In the
event of the destruction of the records now stored therein, the Department would suffer irreparable loss. Even at this time, the fact that the
records of 1833 and 1814 were burned is made apparent by frequent
embarrassment to the public business. The Department trusts that a
worse calamity may not prove more detrimental to its interests in the
future.
DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA.

The net expenditures on account of the District of Columbia for "the
fiscal year 1898 were $6,319,725.84. The net revenues deposited in
the Treasury on this account for the same period were $3,727,893.10.



LIV

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

Under the operations of the sinking fands, the net reduction of the
bonded debt during the year was $611,600, and of the annual interest
charge, $21,442.
The bonds of the old funded debt retired with the sinking fund for the
water-stock bonds amounted to $342,950, leaving a balance of $50 uninvested. If a $50 bond can be purchased with the unexpended balance,
the bonds retired will equal in amount the water-stock bonds outstanding. The interest accumulations on the bonds retired with this sinking
fund are available to pay interest on the water-stock bonds, and will
amount during the fiscal year to $17,985, while the total amount required
for interest is $24,010. The difference between these sums—$6,025—
is all that is required to be appropriated from the water fund for this
account.
Under the authority contained in the District appropriation act
approved March 3, 1897, the balance remaining on the 1st day of July,
1897, of the principal of the debt incurred for increasing the water
supply was paid in full. - The amount advanced by the United States
during the fiscal year 1898 was $300.21, one-half and the interest thereon
to be charged to the District. Daring the same period there was repaid
to the appropriation $3,628.01, one-half and the interest thereon to be
credited to the District. This leaves $1,670.42 as the net amount due
the District of Columbia at the close of the fiscal year 1898.
The District approi)riation act approved June 30, 1898, authorizes
and directs the Secretary of War to resume work on the Aqueduct
tunnel, and reappropriates the balance remaining of the appropriations
for increasing the water supply, to be advanced out of the revenues of
the United States, and not subject to the conditions of the capital
account created by the act of July 15, 1882, and also appropriates an
equal sum out of the surplus general revenues of the District of Columbia. These appropriations were made immediately available.
Detailed information in regard to the affairs of the District of Columbia will be found in the report to be submitted by the District Commissioners', and by the Treasurer of the United States, ex officio
commissioner of the sinking fand of the District of Columbia.
IMMIGRATION.

The report of the Commissioner-General of Immigration shows that
229,299 immigrants arrived during the year, a decrease, compared with
the preceding fiscal year, of 1,533. The number of those debarred and
refused landing was 3,229, as compared with 1,880 for the preceding
year, and was composed of 417 alien-contract laborers, 2,261 paupers,
258 diseased persons, 1 idiot, 12 insane, 2 convicts, 79' assisted immigrants, and 199 who were returned within one year after their arrival,
having become public charges.
More particular attention has recently been given to the cases of
immigrants suspected of being afflicted with disease. During the fiscal



REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

LV

year ended June 30, 1897, only one immigrant was debarred as being
afflicted with a ^loathsome or dangerous contagious disease," while
during the last year 258 were denied admission on that account.
These exclusions have frequently resulted in the separation *of families,
the debarred immigrant being returned to the country of his nativity,
while his relatives are permitted to journey to their destinations in this
country. Having the prevention of this in view, and to establish a
more efficient guard against the admission of ^loathsome or dangerous
contagious diseases," the Commissioner-General of Immigration suggests the expediency of examining immigrants at various ports of embarkation, instead of after their arrival in this country.
The recommendation that legislative provision be made whereby the
Bureau of Immigration maybe put in communication with State immigration organizations, with a view of effecting a better distribution of
arriving immigrants, is approved. There is beyond question a tendency
on the part of immigrants toward the cities, just as there is such a
tendency among our own rural population. A social i3roblem involving
relief to unemployed labor at congested centers of population may be
partially solved by efforts directing immigrants to fields where their
services may be in demand. This course will also lessen the likelihood
of their becoming public charges.
The report also calls attention to the fact that some aliens have, for
the purxiose of obtaining naturalization papers, made false statements,
and the Commissioner-General recommends that a suitable record be
kept at the ports of arrival concerning each immigrant, a copy of which,
in the form of a certificate, may be furnished, setting forth in detail
particulars regarding the time of his arrival and personal characteristics
by which he can be fully identified, such certificate to be used to establish his right to naturalization.
The same record would prove useful for the purpose of identifying
aliens both in this country and when residing abroad and claiming the
rights of American citizenship.
For extending the usefulness of the Immigration Service, it is recommended that the limitation be repealed that no greater sum shall be
expended for the enforcement of the laws at any port than shall have
been collected at said port from the head tax. This provision was
justified by the old organization of the Immigration Service, when local
affairs were carried on mainly through the instrumentality of State
boards under contract with the Secretary of the Treasury. The Service
has become so general now and is so firmly established under Federal
jurisdiction that there seems to be no necessity for limiting the use of
the immigration fund as now prescribed.
The attention of Congress is invited to the several recommendations
of the Commissioner that the head tax be increased from $1 to $2,
that the present system of examination at Canadian ports of immigrants destined to the United States be abandoned, and that certain



LVI

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

points on the Canadian border shall be designated as ports of entry, at
which corps of inspectors shall be stationed and where alone immigrants through Canada may be admitted into this country. The consideration which Congress may be able to give to these recommendations
may serve to determine fully the advisability of making the changes
suggested.
That portion of the Commissioner-General's report which is devoted
to receipts and expenditures shows that during the year the total
receipts have amounted to $326,644.47, while disbursements for the
sa-me period were $275,809.32, leaving a surplus of $50,835.15, There
was expended .on account of the enforcement of the alien-contract
labor law $78,766.65.
CHINESE EXCLUSION.

The total number of Chinese persons admitted to the United States
in the last fiscal year was 7,195. Of this number, 5,273 were of the
exempt class, principally merchants, students, etc.; 425 were so-called'
artists, actors, artisans, and laborers, admitted for the Transmississippi
and International Exposition at Omaha, and 1,497 were returning registered laborers. There were also 865 who passed through the United
States under bond in transit to other countries. Two hundred and
eighty Chinese were refused admission.
The number of Chinese persons arrested for deportation because
unlawfully in the United States was 756. Of this number, 220 were
deported, by due process of law, at a total expense of $24,132.94. The
aggregate expense incurred in the enforcement of the Chinese-exclusion
laws was $84,453.74.
It is believed that many Chinese laborers have gained unlawful admission by representing themselves to have been born in the United States.
In such cases they present themselves to the customs officers at the
frontier and seek arrest. On being taken before the United States commissioner for deportation proceedings, they are frequently discharged
on their own testimony and that of their alleged fathers. In many
cases such testimony is believed to have been untrue, and in a number
of instances the applicants or the alleged fathers, or both, have been
suc<3essfully prosecuted for perjury.
In the case of Quock Fing v. United States (140 U. S., 417) it was held
that the testimony of the applicant, corroborated by his alleged father,
to the effect that he was of American birth, where the circumstances
in evidence tended to lessen the probability that such testimony was
true, was not sufficient to warrant the discharge of the applicant. Notwithstanding this ruling. United States commissioners in Vermont, New
York, and elsewhere, having original jurisdiction in such cases, have
discharged Chinese who enter the United States claiming to have beeU;
born therein, although circumstances in evidence tend to lessen the probability that the testimony is true.



REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

LVII

In the act approved November 3, 1893, relating to the registration of
Chinese residing in this country, it was provided that where a Chinese
person applied for admission into the United States, on the ground that
he was formerly engaged here as a merchant, he should establish, by the
testimony of two credible witnesses other than Chinese, the fact that he
conducted business as a merchant for at least one year before his departure from this country. The enactment of a law requiring Chinese
claiming to have ,been born in the United States to establish that fact
by evidence other than that of Chinese is, in my opinion, advisable
in order to prevent evasion of the exclusion laws by persons claiming
to have been born here of Chinese parents.
The joint resolution approved June 30,1897, authorized and directed
the admission to the United States of such number of mechanics, artisans, agents, or other employees, natives of China, as the Secretary of
the Treasury might deem necessary for the purpose of preparing and
conducting any privileges or concessions which might be granted by
the Transmississippi and International Exposition Company of Omaha,
Nebraska, in connection with such Exposition. The Department was
duly advised of the granting of two concessions for Chinese exhibits at
the Exposition, and the concessionaires, with the approval of the president of the Exposition Company, made application for the admission of
835 Chinese. Eegarding the number excessive, the landing of 650 Chinese persons under the concessions referred to was authorized, and of
this number 425 were admitted during the last fiscal year.
The Department is now advised that many of the Chinese admitted
are no longer at the Omaha Exposition, and that a considerable number
of women so admitted have since been the subject of barter for immoral
purposes.
Although provision is made for the departure from this country of
Chinese admitted as participants at expositions, the law is not observed,
and great expense is incurred in apprehending and deporting such persons after the close of the exposition. In view of the abuses which
have been practiced in these cases, it is submitted that the provisions of
the Chinese-exclusion laws should not be suspended or waived in connection with expositions.
In view of the frequent arrival in the United States of vessels having
Chinese laborers on board as stewards, cooks, and seamen, and in the
absence of any authority to exact from the masters of such vessels bonds
providing for the deportation of such Chinese laborers, it has been
necessary to authorize the temporary employment of guards at several
ports to prevent their illegal landing, at an expense of more than
$20,000 per annum, payable out of the appropriation for the enforcement of the Chinese-exclusion laws.
If bill H. E. 10829, now pending in Congress, which authorizes the
execution of bonds by masters of vessels, conditioned for the deportation of Chinese laborers employed thereon, should become a law, thiB



LVIII

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

expense would be avoided. The bill should, however, be amended so
as to provide that where such bonds are not given, collectors of customs
shall assign officers to duty as guards on the vessels at the ex|)ense of
the masters thereof With this amendment, the passage of the bill is
recommended.
MARINE-HOSPITAL SERVICE.

With the close of the fiscal year 1898, the United States MarineHospital Service completed the one hundredth year of its existence,
the original act for the relief of sick and disabled seamen having been
passed by Congress on July 16, 1798.
The growth and development of this branch of the Government
service during this time—and more especially during the last decade—
are set forth in detail in its annual reports.
At this time the personnel of the Service is as follows: Commissioned
medical officers, '75, including the Surgeon-General, 21 surgeons, 27
passed assistant surgeons, and 26 assistant surgeons.
There are, in addition, 136 noncommissioned officers, viz : Acting
. assistant surgeons, 98 ; sanitary inspectors, 4 ; and hospital stewards, 34.
When all the stations of the Service have their full complement of
attendants and quarantine employees, there are, in addition, about 400
men employed under this branch of the Government. This number is,
of necessity, much increased during epidemics. There are 21 hosiDitals
owned and operated by the Service, and 11 quarantine stations, but, in
addition to these, there are 88 localities in the United States where
patients of the Service receive dispensary and hospital treatment.
During the fiscal year 1898, the total number of beneficiaries treated
at dispensaries and hospitals was 52,709, and of this number 11,914
were hospital patients.
Professional aid was also given to other branches of the Government
service, viz : To the Eevenue Cutter Service, in the physical examination of applicants for positions as cadets and engineers, and treatment
of its members when ill; to the Life-Saving Service, in a similar manner; to the Steamboat-Inspection Service, in examination of applicants
for pilots' licenses for color blindness; t o t h e Immigration Service by
medical inspection of immigrants; to the Civil Service, in making physical examinations; and, since the inception of hostilities with Spain, to
the United States Army and Navy.
The aid rendered to the Army and Navy was not altogether limited
to the care of sick or injured soldiers and sailors, although many were
treated at the various hospitals of the Service. In accordance with the
arrangements agreed upon between this Department and the War
Department, officers of the Marine-Hospital Service were ordered to
duty on board vessels used by the Army as transports, in order that
these ships might be kept in good sanitary condition and free from
infection, although voyaging between this country and infected ports.



REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

LIX

The detention camp at Egmont Key, Florida, received laborers and
soldiers coming from Cuba and held them until proved to be free from
infection. One commissioned officer was granted leave of absence to
permit his enlistment in the Army and one served as surgeon of the
revenue cutter McCulloch during the naval operations at the Philippines.
A number of acting assistant surgeons were also granted temporary
leave for service with the Army.
The expenditures from the Marine-Hospital fund during the fiscal
year 1898 were $600,131.45. The balance on hand at the close of the
fiscal year was $514,997.83.
At the beginning of the fiscal year there was on hand a balance pf
$474,720.86 from the appropriation for the prevention of the spread of
epidemic diseases, but the operations of the Service during the summer
of 1897 for the suppression and limitation of the spread of yellow fever
reduced this amount materially, so that of this appropriation only
$256,424.44 remained available at the close of the fiscal year. This
amount, however, was increased by the deficiency appropriation of
$200,000 (act of July 7, 1898) for quarantine measures, making the
available balance $456,424.44.
Marine hospitals.
The Surgeon-General reports that the marine hospitals are in good
condition, and that during the past year special attention has been
paid to their equipment in the matter of furniture and appliances for
patients, medical libraries, and operating rooms, the latter being supplied with the most recent appurtenances connected with modern
surgery.
An exhibit, illustrating the functions of the Service, was made in the
Government building at the Omaha Exposition.
Contagious diseases.
The report of the Surgeon-General contains, under separate chapters,
full reports upon the prevalence of cholera, yellow fever, smallpox,
plague, and leprosy, together with scientific information concerning
the nature of these diseases and the sanitary measures adopted for
their suppression.
Smallpox has appeared during tbe year in 24 States and the District
of Columbia. The Marine-Hospital Service, by special request, took
complete charge of the epidemic at Birmingham, Ala., and at Middlesboro, Ky., causing the disease to disappear in those localities, and
giving advisory aid, through competent officers, to a number of other
infected points. The disease has been of a remarkably mild character,
and, inasmuch as it is one that is easily prevented by vaccination, the
Surgeon-General expresses the belief that its suppression should be left
to State and local authorities, except under grave conditions and where



LX

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

its spread to several States is especially threatening. The action of
the Department in rendering aid in this instance has been in accordance
with this position.
With regard to leprosy, as recommended in my last annual report to
Congress, a bill was introduced authorizing an investigation b y t h e
Marine-Hospital Service as to its prevalence and necessary sanitary
measures to prevent its spread. This bill (S. 2904) has passed the
Senate, has been reported favorably by the House committee, and it is
hoped that it will become a law during the coming session of Congress.
Foreign sanitary inspection.
To assist in the prevention of the introduction of contagious diseases
into the United States, sanitary inspectors have been stationed at
Habana, Santiago de Cuba, Eio de Janeiro, and Yokohama, the
detailed information furnished by them being published in the annual
report of the Service.
The Surgeon-General reports that, owing to the new conditions in Cuba
and Puerto Eico, and on account of the growing proportions of the fruit
trade with certain Central and South American ports, it will be necessary during the coming season to have special inspectors stationed at
a number of ports with a view of certifying to the freedom from
infection of each vessel clearing therefrom. This is necessary both for
safety and to prevent undue detention of these vessels at quarantine,
which would ruin this trade. The expenses of these inspectors will be
paid out of the epidemic fund.
National quarantine stations.
The eleven national quarantine stations have been operated successfully during the year, and many repairs and additions to their equipment have been made under special appropriations from Congress.
It is recommended that ample appropriations be made for national
quarantine stations in order that their equipment may be made complete for the rapid transaction of business and the safety and comfort of
vessels and persons undergoing detention.
The board appointed to select a site for the new quarantine station
at the mouth of the Columbia Eiver, iri Oregon, appropriated for at
the last session of Congress, has made its report, and negotiations are
in progress for securing a desirable site.
Sanitary reports and statistics.
In this division of the Bureau a table of mortality for more than
1,000 cities and villages of the United States has been published, giving
the total number of deaths, the number of deaths from infectious diseases, and the estimated death rate.
The Public Health Eeports of the Marine-Hospital Service, containing statistical information concerning the health of various localities



REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

LXI

throughout the world, quarantine reports, immigration reports, and
such information of a sanitary nature as is of interest to those engaged
in the preservation of public health, are prepared in this division and
published every week. This publication is now in the thirteenth year of
its existence, and constitutes a volume of over 1,000 pages yearly. It is
distributed to sanitarians. State and local boards of health, health officials in this and foreign countries, quarantine officers, and consuls, and
forms a valuable repository of current sanitary reports.
Hygienic laboratory.
The Surgeon-General reports that during the past fiscal year original
investigation has been continued in the hygienic laboratory of the
Service; an examination—bacteriological and chemical—of the water of
the Potomac Eiver, as it flows from the pipes in the District of Columbia,
has been made, and the result submitted to Congress in response to
special request.
Work in connection with car sanitation has been continued, and experiments in immunization for pneumonia and enteric fever have been
carried on, together with investigations into the purity and various
methods of preparation of vaccine.
In addition to these investigations, experiments were carried on to
test the efficiency of formaldehyd as a disinfecting agent, and a comparative study of the pseudo-diphtheria and true diphtheria bacillus, previously undertaken, was completed. Work is in progress whereby the
laboratory will be able to furnish the material for the treatment of
hydrophobia according to the method of Pasteur.
Instruction of officers of the Service in bacteriological work has been
continued.
Attention is again called to the necessity—increasing every year—
for the enlargement of the laboratory of the Service and for providing
therefor a separate building, and it is recommended that an appropriation of $50,000 be made for this purpose.
It is also recommended that a commission of medical officers of the
Marine-Hospital Service be authorized by act of Congress to investigate
the source of pollution of streams and other water supplies of towns and
cities where it affects the people of more than one State.
Scientific investigation of yellow fever.
As stated in my previous annual report, by direction of the President
two skilled bacteriologists of the Marine-Hospital Service were specially
detailed to investigate in Habana the cause of yellow fever. A laboratory was established, and they continued their labors until obliged to
withdraw on account of the war. They have now returned, and are
continuing the investigation, and their preliminary report, published
in the annual report of the Service, indicates that the true cause of the



LXII

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

disease has been found by Professor Sanarelli in the bacillus icteroides.
Further work is necessary for definite demonstration, but if the present
indications are borne out by future laboratory experiments, a great
advance will have been made toward both the prevention and cure of
yellow fever.
Origin of yellow fever epidemic of 1897.
The question of how the yellow fever gained admission to the United
States last year (1897) is discussed and brought to a conclusion in the
report of the Surgeon-General for 1898.
The attempt to fasten the responsibility upon the national quarantine station at Ship Island, Mississippi, is shown by the report of the
Senate committee appointed to investigate the subject, and the report
of the committee of the legislature of the State of Mississippi, to have
failed. The management of the station and the wisdom and legality
of its return to Ship Island, after the destruction of Chandeleur Island,
had been viciously assailed, but, after the most searching investigation,
exoneration followed.
As shown in the report of a medical officer of the Service specially
detailed to make the investigation, the fever was introduced in Ocean
Springs in April, 1897, through a traveler from Guatemala, who came
to Ocean Springs thrpugh the New' Oiieans quarantine on April 12,
before the beginning of the close quarantine season, and arrived at
Ocean Springs April 13, sick.
Fost-epidemic disinfection. ^

?

After the fever of 1897 the Marine-Hospital Service, with the aid of
the local authorities, entered upon a complete disinfection of all places
in Mississippi, Alabama, and Louisiana where yellow fever had been
reported. This work occupied the entire winter, with great expense
and labor, and is considered to have been valuable in at least limiting
the disease during the summer just ended, the recrudescence this year
being confined, so far as known, to McHenry, Miss.', and Franklin and
New Orleans, La., none of the numerous infected localities in Alabama
suffering from a return of the disease.
Yellow fever precautions, 1898.
The unsettled conditions in Cuba, and, later, the outbreak of hostilities with Spain, excited grave concern lest in the turmoil of war the
yellow fever should gain admission to the United States. The greatest care and vigilance were, therefore, exercised by the MarineHospital Service to prevent it, and the efforts made were successful,
the appearance of yellow fever in Mississippi and Louisiana in

the late summer and fall being considered a recrudescence of the fever
of the previous year.
Competent officers of the Marine-Hospital Service were located in
different portions of the south Atlantic and Gulf seaboard for the purpose bf maintaining vigilant watch with regard to the observance on
the part of nayal vessels and army transports of the quarantine
regulations.
Letters were addressed to the Secretary of War and to the Secretary
of the Navy, inviting their attention to the grave dangers involved
through military operations, with request that their officers be directed
to observe strictly the national quarantine regulations. Prompt and
satisfactory replies were received, and orders were issued in accordance
therewith.
The Surgeon-General of the Marine-Hospital Service, through frequent communication with the Navy and War Departments, kept himself informed regarding the anticipated return of troops and vessels,
and secured the cooperation of both Departments in the selection, as
ports of arrival from Cuba, of points where the danger of yellow fever
infection is materially diminished and where they could comply more
readily with the quarantine regulations.
Meantime, on Egmont Key, at the entrarice of Tampa Bay, a detention camp was established for holding under observation those who
might be brought from Cuba through urgent necessity or ignorance of
the quarantine regulations or by mistake. About 700 refugees were
cared for in this camp.
Learning of the contemplated transfer of the Army from Santiago to
Montauk Point, this Department addressed a letter to the Secretary
of War, outlining the measures which should be taken to prevent the
movement becoming dangerous. The substance of these letters was
embraced in the official order of the War Department relating to the
precautions to be taken both at Santiago and on arrival at Montauk,
At the latter place a complete maritime quarantine was established by
the Marine-Hospital Service, embracing a corps of inspecting officers,
with expert diagnosticians, and a floating disinfecting plant, the barge
Protector, which had just been completed for service at Tortugas quarantine. The quarantine anchorages were buoyed by the Light-House
Establishment, and the auxiliary navy and the Eevenue Cutter Service
furnished patrol vessels to prevent communication with the incoming
transports.
^
The troops on landing were taken to provisional camps under control
of the Army, where they were held under observation before entering
the regular camp. Three cases of yellow fever were found upon two
of transports and the latter and their contents were thoroughly disinfected.
In addition to the above, there was prepared by the Marine-Hospital
Bureau a treatise on yellow fever, giving in plain terms the quarantine



LXIV

REPORT OP THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

regulations against this disease and the method of dealing with it when
found on board ship or on land. This book was issued to naval vessels,
army transports, quarantine officers, and others. Its value has been
widely acknowledged.
Eecrudescence of yellow fever in Louisiana and Mississippi in 1898.
Anticipating a possible recrudescence of the fever in the South, a
number of physicians were employed in various localities to report
promptly suspicious cases to the medicarotficers of the Marine-Hospital
Service.
Through one of these officers the presence of the disease at McHenry,
Miss., was made known to the Bureau July 9. It was found to have
existed in mild form for three weeks previous to that date. The cause
of the recrudescence at McHenry is fully set forth in the report of the
Surgeon-General. There were in all 22 cases, but no deaths and no
spread. Most active measures were immediately taken, and for the
first time, so far as known, in the history of this disease, an epidemic
was suppressed in its incipiency.
August 11 there was a reported death from yellow fever at Franklin, La., and, despite strenuous efforts, it prevailed in Franklin until
the latter part of October, with a total of 607 cases and 9 deaths.
Earnest efforts were made, and with success, to prevent its spreading
from Franklin to other localities. These measures consisted of a cordon
and detention camp and a careful watch of surrounding localities.
August 31 yellow fever was reported at Or wood. Miss., and investigation showed that it had existed in mild form for some weeks, and
there had been a total of 35 cases to the 4th of September. The infection
was traced to Taylors, Miss., where cases had developed as early as
July 20. Subsequently the fever was found in various other localities in
Louisiana and Mississippi, the date of its announcement, however, not
indicating the date of the infection pf the locality. The (apparent)
spread from one locality to another was apparent only, the probability
being that a number of places were infected at about the same time
from one or more centers of infection.
September 17 the disease was first officially announced in New
Orleans, though doubtless it had been existing there an indefinite time
prior to that date. As officially reported, there were in all 74 cases and
19 deaths, but there is little doubt these figures do not correctly express
the true prevalence and mortality of the disease.
The outbreak was practically brought to an end in the latter part of
October with the presence of frost. November 10, there had been
reported officially in both Louisiana and Mississippi 2,455 cases, with
114 deaths, a mortality of 4.64 per cent. Of this number, 1,470 cases
and 51 deaths occurred in Louisiana and 985 cases and 63 deaths in
Mississippi.That the disease was mild is shown by a comparison with the statistics



REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

LXV

for Louisiana and Mississippi of the epidemic of 1897, itself a very
mild one, when there were in Louisiana 1,916 cases with 293 deaths,
and in Mississippi 1,668 cases and 96 deaths, the total for these two
States being 3,584 cases and 392 deaths, a mortality of 10.9 per cent.
The disease this year was confined to Louisiana and Mississippi, while
in 1897 it was reported in Alabama, Tennessee, and Texas, as well as
Louisiana and Mississippi. While there was panic caused by the presence of yellow fever, interruption of train service on railroads was
inconsiderable when compared with the season of 1897.
Experienced surgeons of the Marine-Hospital Service were sent to all
infected and suspected points, and the work of the Service consisted
in the establishment of detention camps, train-inspection, disinfection of baggage from the infected localities, surveillance over travel,
disinfection of freight, and other measures intended to prevent the
spread of the disease and at the same time prevent panic and other unnecessary interruptions to traffic. The Department has received many
expressions of appreciation of services rendered.
During the summer and fall, reports of the existence of yellow fever
in certain seaboard cities of the South were received, making necessary
careful investigation. While these investigations were negative in their
results, they caused for the time as much solicitude and labor as though
the results had been affirmative.
National quarantine.
With regard to protection from yellow fever in the future, the Surgeon-General calls attention to the necessity for perfecting the national
maritime quarantine, as has been consistently advocated by him in
previous reports. Arrangements have been perfected providing for
the disinfection of vessels before their departure from Habana and
Santiago.
The deficiencies in the present national quarantine laws were duly
presented to Congress at its last session, and bills were introduced
(H. E. 4363 and S. 2680) amending the present laws and providing for
more strictly national quarantine, both maritime and interstate. These
bills, making practically the same provisions, received the indorsement
of this Department and were favorably reported upon by the respective
committees of the Senate and House, are now pending, and should be
enacted into law.

In my last annual report the following was submitted:
The following vessels should be condemned and sold just as soon as it
is possible to replace them :
The Seward: This vessel was constructed in 1873; is a wooden sidewheeler ; now, after twenty-four years' service, is practically worn out,
unseaworthy, and not worth extensive repairs; cost originally $34,600,
and since for repairs $26,588.
The McLane: This vessel was acquired from the Navy in 1865, after
serving as a gunboat during the war. It is an iron side-wheel vessel,
of obsolete type, has been thirty-two years in the Eevenue Cutter Servvice; cost originally $36,000, and for repairs since $113,275. The
vessel is not worth extensive repairs.
The Colfax: This vessel was constructed in 1871, is of iron sheathed
with wood, twenty-six years old and a side wheeler; cost originally
$65,500, and since for repairs $87,000. The hull is very tender and can
not be properly repaired without practically rebuilding, and it is not
worth any considerable outlay.
The Boutwell: This vessel was built in 1873, and owing to bad design
is not now, and never was, a seaworthy vessel. It is a twin-screw boat,
V ..y slow, and unfit for the work of a revenue cutter ; cost originally
$70',000, and since for repairs $49,840.
The Washington and Chandler are both small tugs, acquired from the
tNavy in 1865, in which they did service during the war. Both are wooden
vessels, have been in the Eevenue Cutter Service thirty-two years.
They cost originally, the Washington $7,000 and the Chandler $6,500,
and for repairs since $35,732 and $34,537, respectively.
The Hamlin: This vessel was constructed in 1866, is a small wooden
tug, and has been actively in service for thirty-one years. It is past
repairing; cost originally $15,500, and for repairs since $13,046.
There should be provided a vessel for service on the Columbia Eiver,
Washington, and nearby waters. The Columbia Eiver Bar is widely
known to be dangerous, and a vessel should be constructed with special
reference to service in those waters.
I recommend that five cruising vessels and at least three vessels for
harbor service be provided. These vessels should take the place of those
worn out in service and no longer worth extensive repairs.
As conditions have not changed since the foregoing was written,
except that expenditures for repairs upon the old vessels named, aggregating $3,972.04, have been added, the recommendations are renewed.
The Service in the war with Spain.
The Eevenue Cutter Service has taken an active and conspicuous
part in the war with Spain. There were with the Navy 13 revenue

cutters, carrying 61 guns, 98 officers, an,d 562 enlisted men. Of these,
8 cutters (43 guns), 58 officers, and 339 men were in Admiral Sampson's
fleet and on the Habana blockade; 1 cutter (6 guns), 10 officers, and
95 men were in Admiral Dewey's fleet at Manila, and 4 cutters (12
guns), 30 officers, and 128 men cooperated with the Navy on the Pacific
Coast.
At the battle of Manila, the McCulloch, Capt. D. B. Hodgsdon, E. C. S.,
efficiently performed the duties assigned by Admiral Dewey. It was
the McCulloch that carried to Hongkong the dispatches announcing to
the Government and to the world that glorious and signal victory.
Admiral Dewey has officially commended the commander ofthe McCulloch for the value and efficiency of his command.
At the battle of Cardenas, May 12, the revenue cutter Hudson, Lieut.
Frank H. Newcomb, E. C. S., commanding, sustained the^fight against
the gunboats and shore batteries of the enemy, side by side with the
naval torpedo boat Winslow, and when Ensign Bagley and half the crew
of the latter-named vessel had been killed and her commander wounded,
rescued from certain destruction the vessel and the balance of the crew,
under the furious fire ofthe enemy's guns. On the same day (May 12)
the Windom, Captain Maguire, E. C. S., engaged the enemy's shore batteries at Cienfuegos, demolished the light-house, and destroyed the
rendezvous of the Spanish troops there. During this engagement the
senior naval officer present, in appreciation of the fine work of the
Windom, signaled from his flagship : '^ Well done, Windom.^^
The Manning, Capt. F. M. Munger, E. C. S., commanding, was in many
engagements with shore batteries of the eriemy, and Captain Todd,
U. S. N., has officially bestowed upon her commander generous praise
for the efficiency of his command and for effective and meritorious
services. Eear-Admiral Howell and Commodore Eemey have officially
commended the efficiency of the Service in cooperation.
In addition to services rendered by vessels with the naval forces, there
were 7 others, carrying 10 guns, 33 officers, and 163 men, with the Army,
engaged in patrolling and guarding mine fields in various harbors, from
Boston to Mobile and New Orleans.
The Eevenue Cutter Service had, in active cooperation with the Army
and Navy throughout the war, 20 vessels, carrying 71 guns, 131 officers,
and 725 men. There were 3 other vessels—25 officers and 210 men—
ordered to be transferred to the Navy, but, because of unavoidable
delays by contractors in finishing their work, the vessels could not be
sent to the front.
Fersonnel.
Attention is again invited to the necessity of adequate legislation for
the further promotion of the efficiency of the Eevenue Cutter Service.
The usefulness of this branch (in common with that of other similar
organizations) depends for the most part, if not wholly, upon the fitness



LXVIII REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.
of those composing its commissioned ranks. It is the aim and purpose
ofthe Department to raise the Eevenue Cutter Service to the highest
standard of excellence. While much has been done in this regard by
the Department, in the formulation of proper orders and regulations,
certain essential results can not be accomplished without legislation by
Congress, the need of which is seriously felt. Something must be done
immediately, whereby the active lists of commissioned officers can be
filled with men mentally and physically qualified to perform the arduous,
hazardous, and exacting labors which the laws impose. Prior to the
year 1895, the Service, due to the absence of remedial legislation, had
reached such a state that Congress finally recognized its almost helpless
condition, and passed the act of March 2, 1895, under the provisions
of which 39 officers were placed upon a permanent waiting-orders (or
retired) list. In the enactment referred to. Congress recognized two
essential features: First, the absolute necessity of extending this relief
in the form of a retired list; and, secondly, the justice and fairness of
the principle of the relief extended.
But the act did not go far enough. While it relieved an emergency
and retired from active service all officers who were then (March 2,1895)
disqualified, it ended there. Some officers who were left on the active
list, after the law had been carried into effect, as physically sound, have
since become unfit for duty afloat, because of age and disabilities incident
thereto, as well as to those contracted in the line of duty. As a consequence, there are at this time 11 officers who are, by reason of age alone,
incapacitated for active duty afloat. These are as follows: One of 72
years, one of 67 years, three of 66 years, one of 65 years, three of 63
years, and two of 62 years. The length of service of these officers ranges
from twenty-eight to thirty-seven years in individual cases, while some
of them are veterans of the Navy in the war for the Union. It will
thus be seen that the Service is seriously crippled (at this time, and
relief is recommended.
It will be readily conceded by all who are conversant with the facts
that no branch of the public service in time of peace requires as continuous, laborious, and hazardous service as this, while in time "of war,
as was practically demonstrated in the war with Spain, it stands upon
the same ground with the Navy in everything, except in the matter of
compensation and the benefits bestowed by the Government upon the
commissioned ranks of the sister service, in connection with which,
under the law, the Eevenue Cutter Service bore so conspicuous and
meritorious a part.
There is pending in Congress a satisfactory bill (S. 620), which has
been favorably reported by the Committee on Commerce of the Senate.
This bill makes just and fair provision for a ^'permanent waitingorders" (or retired) list fpr the Service, and its passage is recommended.
There is also pending in Congress Senate bill 3903, for the promotion
of the efficiency of the Eevenue Cutter Service, which has my cordial



REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

LXIX

indorsement and approval. This bill was passed by the Senate April 29,
1898, and has been favorably reported by the Committee on Interstate
and Foreign Commerce of the House of Eepresentatives and now awaits
the action of that body. Its most important features provide for the
enforcement of discipline, giving the force of law to that which can not
be compassed by regulations. The bill as a whole is essential to. the
welfare and advancement of the Service, is a meritorious measure, and
it is hoped will become a law as soon as practicable.

In the matter of pensions for the enlisted men of the Eevenue Cutter
Service, the recommendation on the subject contained in my last annual
report is repeated, as follows :
Under the provisions of section 4714, Eevised Statutes, the officers
and seamen of the Eevenue Cutter Service who may be wounded or
disabled in the discharge of their duty, ^ while cooperating with the
^
Navy by order of tfie President," may be placed upon the Navy pension
list.
• The ordinary duties devolved upon the Eevenue Cutter Service are
fraught with greater risk of life and limb than that incurred by the
Army, Navy, and Marine Corps in time of peace, while in time of war
they are at least equal, and every argament that applies as a justification for extending this bounty to those services has equal force on
behalf of the enlisted men of the Eevenue Cutter Service. I therefore recommend that the law, section 4714, Eevised Statutes (act of
April 18, 1814), be amended to read as follows :
'^ The enlisted men of the Eevenue Cutter Service of the United States,
who have been or may be wounded or disabled while in the actual discharge of their duties, shall be entitled to be placed upon a pension
list under the same regulations and restrictions as are now provided by
law for enlisted men of the Navy."
Arctic relief expedition.
November 6, 1897, shortly before the arrival of the revenue cutter
Bear from her usual annual cruise in the Arctic Ocean, news came that
several whaling vessels were ice-bound at or near Point Barrow, in
arctic Alaska. Their officers and crews numbered 265 men. Unless
succor could be given them early in the spring of 1898 they would be
in danger of starvation. Steps were at once taken to render aid. The
Bear, upon her arrival in port, was made ready for the undertaking.
An abundant supply of provisions for the whalemen was put on board,
and preparations were also made for. the expedition which traveled
overland.
The personnel of the overland expedition included Lieut. D. H. Jarvis,
E. C. S., commanding; Lieut. E. P. Bertholf, E. C. S., and Surg. S. J. Call,
E. C. S. The Bear was commanded by Capt. Francis Tuttle.
Nineteen days from the inception of the movement the expedition
sailed from Seattle. Unalaska was reached without special incident.



LXX

REPORT OF T H E SECRETARY OF T H E

TREASURY.

" December 11 the Bear sailed thence north through Bering Sea in quest
of a landing place for the overland party. When within 90 miles of the
north shore of Norton Sound the ship was driven back by ice and gales
to the southward of Nunivak Island. Finally Lieutenant Jarvis and
his party were landed on Cape Vancouver. Then began a perilous
journey of 1,500 miles. These brave men struggled onward four months
in the midst of an arctic winter and an arctic night, over a route never
even traveled before by dog sleds.
The expedition was highly successful, and resulted in the relief of
265 men, 128 of whom were brought back to Seattle. The achievement will take high rank because of its success, and for the exhibition
of fortitude and courage by the members of the overland expedition
and the officers and crew of the Bear.
While the expedition was on its way the Bear wintered at Dutch
Harbor, Unalaska, being detained there by ice and weather conditions
until June 14, 1898, when a start was made for the Arctic. July 16,
after, encountering fogs, gales of wind, and ice packs. Point Hope, in
the Arctic Sea, was reached, and Lieutenant Bertholf joined the ship.
The Bear then proceeded, beset by heavy ice, to Point Barrow, which
was reached July 29. Here Lieutenant Jarvis and Dr. Call, of the
overland party, were taken on board. After provisioning the ships
found at Point Barrow and vicinity, succoring the people who were
to remain, and receiving on board all who desired passage, the Bear
sailed for Seattle, where she arrived September 13, after an absence in
the desolate regions of arctic Alaska of nearly seventeen months.
Thefhighest commendation is due to Capt. Francis Tuttle for ability
displayed in bringing his part of the relief expedition to a successful
termination, and to the officers and crew of the Bear for their devotion
to duty. High praise and generous reward are due to Mr. W. T. Lopp,
of the American Missionary Society at Cape Prince of Wales, and to
the intelligent native Artisarlook, who left their homes and families to
aid the overland expedition, provid'ng reindeer and helping to drive
them to Point Barrow.
NAVIGATION.

War with Spain and the annexation of the Hawaiian archipelago,
which have changed the political and commercial relations of the
United States not only with Cuba, Puerto Eico, Hawaii, and the Philippines, but also with the continents between which and North America
those islands are stepping stones, require the prompt adoption of an
affirmative maritime policy by the United States.
For reasons sufficient in the sight of civilization, we have expelled a
maritime power of no mean rank from its colonies. We must be prepared to assume, in part at least, the obligations to those islands which
were but imperfectly discharged by that nation, and to secure to them
and to ourselves the reasonable benefits of a relationship which Spain



REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

pushed to the degree of extortion. It is not to be expected that the Government of Spain will long continue its support of the mail steamship
lines which have connected its lost possessions with the rest of the
world. Whether, then, the military occupation of former Spanish
possessions by the United States shall lead to their independence or to
their control by this country ultimately, at present it is clear that
American vessels must be established in part in the carrying trade of
the islands or we must allow Great Britain, France, and Germany to
fill entirely the place as a carrier which Spain is about to vacate.
Eegular and frequent communication between the United States and
the islands of the Atlantic and Pacific, which have come within the
sph«ere of political.influence or the absolute control of the United States,
will not, however, satisfy all the obligations which new conditions have
crea.ted. Our boundaries have been pushed thousands of miles nearer
to the markets of Asia and Australia, and hundreds of miles nearer to
the markets of South America and Africa than they were a year ago.
Advantages for the increase of our carrying trade thus afforded will
become ours if we stretch forth our hands to accept them. The relatively undeveloped navigation between the United States, the islands
of the Pacific, and Asia, and the partially developed navigation to South'
America and Africa, will certainly be lost to us if indifference to present
political and cominercial rivalry is now left undisturbed, as was indifference to the mechanical revolution wrought in navigation by iron and
steam at the end of the first half of the century.
It has not escaped the notice even of the less acute among our observing citizens that while we have laws to protect and encourage industries in which, from natural conditions, we must equal or excel our
competitors, the building and navigating of vessels for the international
exchange of products have received but scant and desultory notice from
the law-making power of late years. Yet during these years the conditions under which shipbuilding and oversea navigation are conducted by maritime nations have so changed that the statutes on our
books have almost lost vitality.
A positive policy which shall create anew an American seagoing
merchant fleet is not intrinsically more difficult to establish than has
been the recent rehabilitation of the American Navy, or than, a third
of a century ago, was the establishment of transcontinental railroad
communication. It will undoubtedly require at the beginning, and for
some time to come, the appropriation of appreciable sums of money,
though very much less than our annual expenditures in times of peace
for naval construction and maintenance; but from the nature of the
situation, these expenditures, if adequate at the outset, can be decreased,
and, as is usual with properly adjusted expenditures for the improvement of means of transit and communication, will bring in an early and
steady return on the investment.
The political exigencies which confront us have been mentioned.



LXXII

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

Commercial exigencies, on the Pacific at least, are equally urgent, for
events in the East have precipitated a rivalry for the control of the
carrying trade of that ocean, the great possibilities of which we have
been prone to reckon among our national assets without the effort to
secure them.
In the preparation of legislation to meet the requirements of the situation we may study with advantage the methods which are now employed by our competitors, for those methods have been evolved from
experiment and experience in a branch of industrial activity to which,
of late years, they have given much thought and we little.
Great Britain, Germany, and France have consistently pursued for
years the policy of contributing liberally from the public funds oto
establish steamship lines as a political measure, regarding such lines
as national necessities rather than as commercial investments. This
country is now so placed that the same motive must at least be fully
considered in deciding upon our course of action. Even if the motive
were absent, the fact of Government aid to the foreign lines of steamships with which American vessels must compete can not be ignored.
The extent of that assistance is too often exaggerated in this country,
but the margins on which the business of ocean transportation is conducted are usually so close that even moderate support for public
services may suffice to render successful maritime ventures which could
not be undertaken and regularly prosecuted without such support.
France, Italy, and Japan have adopted the policy of aiding from the
public funds the construction and navigation of substantially all their
vessels engaged in oversea navigation, on the theory that the maintenance of the merchant service is essential as a measure of national
defense. By the expenditure ofabout $1,000,000 annually on the training of merchant seamen as naval reserves, and by refunding light dues
to British vessels furnishing naval reserves. Great Britain recognizes
the same principle. The events of the summer have brought home to
us the reliance which a peaceful country in time of war must place on
its merchant marine and merchant seamen.
The maritime nations of the world for some years have permitted
their shipowners, either unconditionally or under certain restrictions,
to purchase vessels built in other countries. The policy of the United
States, from the beginning of the Government, has been opposed to
American ownership of vessels built abroad. The law, however, was
relaxed in order to permit the establishment of the only American
transatlantic mail line in operation, and during the year Congress, in
its wisdom, and the Departments specially charged with the conduct of
the war, made numerous exceptions to the general rule.
Maritime nations, notably Great Britain and Germany, require the
shipping entering their ports to contribute reasonable taxes for the lighting of the coast, the improvement of harbors, and like objects of expenditure. Although three-fourths of the shipping in international trade



REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

which enters our ports are foreign, and though our annual appropriations
for lighting our coasts and improving our harbors amount to many millions of dollars, the United States, with unique generosity, has for many
years given entry to our ports at relatively insignificant charges, or no
charges whatever, to the vessels of foreign shipowners who are accustomed to pay considerable taxes for the corresponding privilege at home.
By selection arid combination from the methods referred to, it will not
be difficult to evolve a legislative project for the development of our
merchant marine and of domestic shipbuilding, adjusted to our special
needs and based on the prevalent conditions of competition in the oceancarrying trade.
The method recoinmended may be specifically set forth in the following
propositions:
First. A remodeling and extension of the act of March 3, 1891, relating to the carrying of ocean mails in American steamships, so that it
shall meet requirements which have arisen since the law went into
operation.
Second. The establishment of a system of graded bounties upon the
mileage navigated by registered American vessels while engaged in the
foreign carrying trade as compensation forthe training of seamen available for the national defense, the system to have regard also to the
construction of vessels which may be promptly and economically converted into cruisers, troopships, colliers, and supply ships for the use of
the Government. Special provision should also be made for vessels
and men engaged in the deep-sea fisheries.
Third. Extended application of the principle of the act of May 10,
1892, by virtue of which the St. Louis and St. Faul were constructed
in this country upon the registry of the foreign-built steamships New
York and Faris, this extension to continue for a short term of years and
to be so guarded as to preserve the coasting trade to American-built
vessels.
Fourth. A moderate increase in the rates of our tonnage taxes, equalizing them with the corresponding charges at present imposed at Lon^
don, Liverpool, and Hamburg.
Fifth. The restriction of the trade between the United States, Puerto
Eico, and Hawaii and the coasting trade of those islands to vessels bf
American registry.
These propositions are drawn from the current practices of our maritime competitors. They can be put into operation promptly upon their
enactment. They will not raise diplomatic difficulties, delaying action
and involving us in prolonged discussion or a war of commercial retaliation. They will not raise political questions upori which parties, as
now constituted, may divide. They are believed to be entirely adequate
to our needs. The details of these 'propositions are discussed in the
report of the Commissioner of Navigation, in which are also to be found'
• statistics upon the subject.

REPORT OF T H E SECRETARY OF T H E

TREASURY.

LXXV

The slight apparent decline of about 20,000 tons in our total tonnage
is explained by the fact that upward of 60,000 tons were transferred
during the closing months of the year from the merchant list to the War
and Navy by purchase. In the main, these are still essentially merchant vessels, though temporarily in the service of the Government.
During the fiscal year we thus passed through two months of a maritime
war without any real decrease in our merchant shipping. This is the
more significant, as British shipping during the six months of 1897 covered in our fiscal year showed a decline. The construction of vessels
during the year was much less than during the preceding year; but
such was the fact also in Great Britain and maritime countries generally. Our shipbuilding during the closing months of the fiscal year
showed a marked gain over the corresponding period of the previous
year, and the present fiscal year promises to be of exceptional activity
in our shipyards.
The receipts from tonnage taxes for the year were $846,771, compared
with $731,770 for the previous year and $544,225 for the year ended
June 30, 1896. The Commissioner of Navigation offers suggestions on
the operation of the laws concerning tonnage taxes which are commended to the attention of Congress. Legislation for the benefit of
American seamen now holds a place in Congress favorable to early
action.
STEAMBOAT-INSPECTION SERVICE.

The Supervising Inspector-Gen eral reports, for the fiscal year, that the
personnel of the Service at its close consisted of 177 officers, clerks,
and messengers.
The expenses were: For salaries, $288,979.64'; contingent expenses,
$46,340.19; decrease in expenditures from 1897, $6,222.98.
Total number of annual certificates of inspection issued to steam vessels, foreign and domestic, 8,448; number of certificates issued to foreign passenger steam vessels, 316 ; to domestic steam and other motor
vessels, 8,132; gross tonnage of foreign steam vessels, 1,115,446; net
tonnage of domestic vessels inspected, 1,958,437 ; total number of officers holding license, estimated to be 41,000.

brace bolts.
The Supervising Inspector-General renews his recommendations in behalf of legislation to secure a nonpartisan service and permanent tenure
of office, except for"incompetency, misconduct, or permanent physical
or mental disability.
COAST AND GEODETIC SURVEY.
The progress made in this branch of the Service will be fully detailed
in the annual report of the Superintendent, which is required by law to
be transmitted to Congress in December.
In the prosecution of the hydrographic work during the year, especial
attention has been directed to the localities where the interests of commerce are most important. It has been found most advantageous to
concentrate as large a force as possible in such localities and to keep
the parties in the field during the ^hole of the season available for
work. By this plan the necessary surveys are rapidly completed with
greater economy of expenditure than could be attained by employing
a number of small parties season after season in widely separated
portions of the coast, and the results can also be more promptly given
to the public. With this idea, the form of the appropriation for field
work was modified by the substitution of a few comprehensive items
for many small ones, thus permitting the exercise of some discretion in
the assignment of parties.
Among the important operations of the year may be mentioned the
following: The resurvey of Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts, has been com


REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

pleted; the resurvey of Chesapeake Bay has occupied a number of
parties during the greater part of the year, and it is making satisfactory
progress; the survey of Lake Pontchartrain, Louisiana, has been completed ; the resurvey of San Francisco Bay is nearing completion, the
more important portions having already been covered by the hydrographic and topographic work.
The recent rapid development of the Territory of Alaska, due in a
great measure to the gold discoveries in the Klondike region, and
the consequent large influx of population and increase in the carrying
trade, were regarded of such importance as to call for special surveys
along the coast, and to that end an appropriation of $100,000 was
made by Congress at its last session. At the opening of navigation
in the spring three parties were fitted out and sent to Alaska. One
of these parties was directed to make an exploration and survey of
the delta of the Yukon Eiver, the chief waterway to the interior, with
a view to the discovery of a better and deeper channel into the river
than that now used. At present, not more than five feet of water can
be carried through what is known as the Aphoon mouth of the river,
the only channel used by vessels, while a much greater depth of water
is found after getting into the river. The second party was directed
to survey the coast in the vicinity of the Copper Eiver, and the third
to make a topographical reconnaissance of the country adjacent to
Chilkat and Chilcoot passes, this work having an important bearing on
the question of the boundary line between Alaska and the British Possessions. Hydrographic surveys along the Alaska coast have made excellent progress, and charts of the localities most frequented by vessels
are being perfected as rapidly as possible. A new steamer for use in
Alaska and the Aleutian Islands is now in course of construction, and
will greatly facilitate this important work.
Soon after the declaration of war with Spain all naval officers
assigned to duty on the Coast and Geodetic Survey were detached.
Owing to the fact that many of the civilian officers of the Survey were
experienced in hydrography, it was possible to supply the places of
most of the naval assistants without any material interruption of the
work. Two of the vessels of the Survey, the BlaJce and the Bache, were
temporarily assigned to duty under the Navy Department, and were
engaged for some time in special surveys at Key West and Tortugas,
and were occasionally employed as transports and dispatch boats.
Upon their return north, the naval officers on board were detached.
The steamers Fatterson and Gedney, at San Francisco, were transferred
to the Navy Department by order of the President, but, no occasion for
their use by that Department arising, they were shortly afterwards
retransferred to the Treasury Department. During the war the general
issue of the charts and publications of the Survey was suspended, both
as a precautionary measure and because the pressing demand for charts
for the use of a large number of naval vessels was such as for a time to

4




LXXVIII

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

greatly tax the resources of the office. An allotment was made from
the appropriation for national defense to provide a small additional
force for this work, and this was afterwards supplemented by a special
deficiency appropriation.
The party sent out toward the close of the last fiscal year to survey
the Pribilof Islands, Alaska, returned in November, 1897, having completed the topographical survey of St. Paul, St. George, Otter, and
Walrus islands, together with detailed surveys of the seal rookeries on
the islands of St. Paul and St. George. The results of this work have
been published and copies furnished to the Departments interested.
One of the most important operations of the Survey, both from a
practical and a scientific point of view, is the geodetic connection of
the surveys of the Atlantic Coast with those of the Pacific Coast, which
has been accomplished by the practical completion of the transcontinental belt of triangulation along the thirty-ninth parallel. This triangulation furnishes an accurate basis for future topographical, geological, or other State or general surveys, and will give the length of an
arc of the parallel extending over 48 degrees of longitude.
The determination of the heights of some of the primary triangulation stations in California and Nevada by observations of double zenith
distances and lines of spirit leveling and their reference to the sea level
have been completed during the year. The determination of the geographic positions of important points throughout the country by latitude observations and telegraphic exchanges of time signals for longitude has made good progress.
Eeconnaissance is now being made for the extension of the primary
triangulation along the ninety-eighth meridian in Kansas and Nebraska
and in Texas. This triangulation, when joined with similar work to be
undertaken by the Canadian and Mexican governments, will form a
meridian arc of far greater extent t^han any heretofore measured, extending through 50 degrees of latitude. The measurement of such an arc with
instruments and methods of a refinement unknown in earlier geodetic
work will furnish valuable data for more accurately determining the
size and figure of the earth, and at the same time will serve as an accurate framework for future local or governmental surveys. The transcontinental line of precise levels has been extended from Ellis, Kans.,
to Hugo, Colo., and from Hugo toward Colorado Springs. Observations of magnetic declination, dip, and intensity at various points
throughout the country have been continued.
The Survey is often called upon to decide in questions relating to
boundary lines, in which it is essential that the magnetic declination at
some former period should be accurately known, and many requests for
information on this subject are received. In connection with this work,
meridian lines for the use of local surveyors have been established and
permanently marked at county seats in many of the States, and magnetic




REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY. LXXIX
ranges for the correction of ships' compasses have been determined at
several of the important seaports.
Observations of tides with automatic gauges have been continued at
Fort Hamilton, New York Harbor; Eeedy Island, Delaware; Washington, D. G ; Morehead City, N. C.; Fernandina, Fla.; San Francisco, Cal.,
and Bremerton, Wash, (at the latter place through the courteous cooperation of the Navy Department), for use in the compilation of the tide
tables published annually, and automatic tidal indicators have been
maintained at Fort Hamilton, New York Harbor, and at Eeedy Island,
Delaware Eiver. Another will soon be erected at San Francisco Bay,
The collection of data for the Coast Pilot of the coasts of the United
States has been continued and new volumes are issued when necessary.
For the purpose of making surveys and examinations needed in the
settlement of disputed points in the boundary line between the States of
Maryland and Virginia, two officers were detailed in the autumn of 1897,
one reporting to the governor of Maryland and the other to the governor of Yirginia. Upon the completion of this duty, toward the close of
the fiscal year, the officers detailed reported to the Superintendent for
employment in the regular work of the Survey.
Cooperation with the international geodetic association has been
maintained, and the usual annual contribution has been paid through
the ambassador of the United States at Berlin. At the request of the
association, examinations have been made, with a view So the selection
of suitable stations for observing the variation of latitude. An officer
of the Survey was sent as delegate on the part of the United States to
the meeting of the association held at Stuttgart in October, 1898.
The association has been furnished, in compliance with its request,
with statistics of the measurement of primary base lines and the determination of astronomical latitudes, longitudes, and azimuths by the
Coast and Geodetic Survey for the years from 1895 to 1898.
The acquisition by the United States of Puerto Eico and the Hawaiian
Islands will render necessary the extension of surveying operations to
include the new territory, and information is being gathered with a
view to the commencement of such surveys as soon as means are available.
The permanent force of the Survey remains essentially the same,
although it has been found advantageous to make a readjustment in the
salaries of some of the office employees, and to increase the number
employed in the entering grade of the field force, so as to provide a class
of qualified young men from which the more responsible positions in
the force of field officers may be recruited when necessary. Vacancies
occurring in the permanent force have been filled by requisition on the
Civil Service Commission, and the employees thus obtained have proved
generally efficient and satisfactory.
The work of the Coast and Geodetic Survey is closely corelated with




LXXX , REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

that of the other Departments, and its charts and publications are used
by the vessels of the Navy, the Light-House Board, and the Fish Commission. Copies of surveys and data are furnished to the United States
engineers, who in return supply information relating to river and harbor improvements for use in the correction of charts. Special surveys
ofthe entrance to Brunswick Harbor, Georgia, and at Charleston, S. C ,
have been made during the present fiscal year by an officer of the Survey at the request of the War Department. Surveys at Key West and
Tortugas have been made for the Navy Department, and speed trial
courses for naval vessels laid out in several localities.
The work of the computing division, the tidal division, .and the
drawing and engraving division has been satisfactorily advanced, and
has kept pace with the work in the field and with the demands for information from other Departments and from private individuals. The work
of the hydrographic division, the disbursing office, and the Office of
Standard Weights and Measures, under the immediate direction of the
Superintendent, has been efficiently conducted. The clerical work of
the office has been performed in a satisfactory manner.
The publication of monthly notices to mariners, containing important
information relating to charts, sailing directions, and reported dangers
to navigation along the coasts, has been continued, and upward of fortyeight thousand copies have been distributed during the fiscal year.
The net proceeds of sales ot charts was $13,645, as against $9,731 for the
previous year. This great increase in the issue of charts was due, in the
first place, to the mining excitement in Alaska, which created an unusually large demand for charts and maps of that Territory, and afterwards to the preparations for the war with Spain and its subsequent
prosecution, which caused an immediate need for large numbers of charts
for the use of the military authorities, the demand from the Navy Department being especially urgent. With a small additional emergency force,
the office was able to supply without delay the charts needed for the vessels ofthe Navy.
Several new maps and charts of special localities in Alaska have
been published to meet the popular demand. Besides a large amount
of work in progress and a number of new editions of charts, 12 new
copperplate charts have been completed during the year and 26 new
charts have been published by photolithography. Of the latter, 52,476
copies have been printed ; 78,995 copies of charts have been printed in
the office from copperplates ; 55 electrotype plates of charts have been
completed, and a large number of photographic reductions and copies
of charts made in the photographic department. For six weeks during
the latter part of the fiscal year the plate-printing office was kept in
operation day and night in order to keep up with the demand.
In the instrument division the inventories of property have been
kept up, and a large amount of work done in the construction of instruments and apparatus, the repairs of those already in use, the packing



REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY. LXXXI
of instruments for transportation, the purchase of new instruments, and
miscellaneous work of various kinds.
Office of Standard Weights and Measures.
In the Office of Standard Weights and Measures important service
has been rendered to the Customs Division of the Treasury Department
in the matter of examining, testing, and standardizing the instruments
and apparatus used for the polariscope analysis of imported sugars for
the imposition of duties. Work on the standards for electrical measure
has made satisfactory progress, an appropriation having been obtained
from Congress for the purchase of the necessary instrumerfts and apparatus. Much of the time of this office has been devoted to the comparison of weights and measures for manufacturers, surveyors, engineers,
and others who require great precision in their work. Eequests for
such service become more frequent as the functions'of this office and its
facilities for accurate work become more widely known.
LIGHT-HOUSE ESTABLISHMENT.

The usual routine of this branch of the public service was naturally
much disturbed by the war with Spain, and the maintenance of the
aids to navigation along our extended seacoast, under the unusual and
changing conditions incident to a state of hostilities with a foreign
power, called for extraordinary exertions on the part of the officers
and employees charged with this duty.
In anticipation of a state of war, the Light-House Board prepared a
detailed memorandum, outlining the special work and dispositions that
would be necessary to put the Service in shape to meet the new conditions and to enable it to cooperate with those branches of the military
and naval services charged with coast defense and to act as an auxiliary
to those services as far as possible. This memorandum met with my
approval, and' copies were sent to all officers in charge of coast districts
and to the Secretaries of War and of the Navy. In general terms, the
program outlined contemplated putting all important seacoast light
stations and those near the entrances to important bays and harbors in
telephonic or telegraphic communication with the local offices and with
the existing telegraph and telephone lines of the War Department,
Life-Saving Service, Navy Department, Weather Bureau, and with the
commercial lines. Signal flags were to be supplied to the keepers of
coast stations and special arrangements were made for the delivery and
transmission of messages. All vessels were to be put in repair, and
arrangements were to be made to promptly extinguish lights and
remove buoys. Arming of the tenders was to be provided for if found
necessary, and all officers and employees were directed to cooperate to
the fullest extent with the local military and naval authorities. Assistance was especially directed in establishing and protecting the subFi98—VI

marine mine defenses of the harbors and in adapting the system of
lights to the conditions which were imposed by the mines. By letter of
March 25, 1898, the Secretary of the Navy was advised that six of the
vessels of the Light-House Service were available for naval service,
and four of these were subsequently detailed for this duty. They were
specially fitted out with rapid-fire guns and torpedoes, etc., and some
of these vessels rendered conspicuous service during the war.
- April 6, upon recommendation of the Light-BLouse Board, a
request was made that $75,000 of the appropriation of $50,000,000 for
national defense be allotted to the Light-House Board for establishing
communication with light stations, as outlined in the memorandum
already referred to, and for general purposes connected with the public
defense. This recommendation received the approval of the Secretary
of War and of the President.
An allotment of $38,500 from the same appropriation was also made
to enable the Light-House Board to charter vessels to distribute supplies to light stations in place of those assigned to naval service, and
for other expenses incident to this purpose.
Under the allotment for communications, etc., 92 miles of land telephone and telegraph lines were built, 43 miles of submarine cable were
laid, connections were made with 78 light stations along the Atlantic
and Gulf coasts, and most of these stations were fitted out with signal
flags, masts, code books, and marine glasses, to enable them to exchang:e
signals with vessels and to communicate readily with local headquarters.
In several of the important harbors assistance was rendered by the
tenders of the Light-House Service in planting the submarine mines.
One tender that remained on light-house duty was provided with small
arms for the crew.
By using two of the self-propelling steam light-ships as tenders and
sending supplies by commercial lines of transportation as far as practicable, the Service was maintained without chartering additional vessels.
The personnel of the Service experienced many changes previous to
and during hostilities. In March three members of the Board were
relieved and assigned to command of squadrons or vessels of war.
These were Commodore (now Admiral) Schley, the chairman, who took
command of the ^'Flying Squadron ;'' Captain Evans, assigned to command of the Iowa, and Commander Wilde, who took command of the
Katahdin. Colonel Gillespie was appointed Brigadier-General of Vol- *
unteers, but was not relieved as member of the Board. The name of the
Engineer Secretary was transmitted to the War Department as available for immediate dutyjrin the field, but he was not called upon for military duty during the war. A number of district inspectors were also
assigned to duty at sea, and temporary arrangements were made by
assigning retired officers of the Navy or the district engineers to inspection duty.
At most of the important seaports of the Atlantic, Gulf, and Pacific



REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY. LXXXIII

coasts the harbor lights were extinguished in whole or in part, and
proper notices to mariners issued upon receipt of advice from the War
Department that the ports had been closed to night navigation on
account of the submarine mine defenses.
Notice to mariners was also issued that all the light vessels stationed
at considerable distance from shore on the Atlantic Coast might be
removed from their stations without further notice, and the LightHouse Board took necessary action to provide steel structures which
might be placed as day marks or unlighted beacons on the more dangerous outlying shoals in the event that it became necessary to remove
the light vessels. This necessity did not, however, arise.
Notwithstanding the unusual conditions, all aids to navigation were
maintained in a generally efficient condition, the usual work of supplying and repairing stations and light vessels was carried on, and a considerable amount of construction work under special appropriations was
accomplished. During the year a total of 97 new lights, 13 new fog
signals, 3 new light vessels, 191 new buoys, and 11 new day marks were
established. Two new tenders were completed and put in commission,
a large number of light and fog-signal stations, depots, and day marks
were extensively renovated, and several tenders and light vessels were
practically rebuilt.
Under the special appropriation for oil houses, 16 of these structures
were completed during the year.
The work of a general and systematic revision of characteristics of
aids to navigation and improvements in lighting and fog-signal apparatus, which was inaugurated last year, was much interfered with by the
war with Spain, but considerable progress was made, and with data now
available the work of improvement can be prosecuted as rapidly as the
appropriations may permit. One improvement of note that has been
accomplished is the substitution of a powerful electric flashing light
for the two old-fashioned fixed lights at the Highlands of Navesink,
entrance to New York Harbor.
The increasing demands of commerce require a continued increase in
the estimates under all the general appropriations, as well as in the estimates for additional lights and fog-signal stations, light vessels, and
tenders, which must be provided for by special appropriations.
The policy of providing sufficient funds under the general appropriations to enable the Light-House Board to make extensive renovations
of existing stations, rather than to leave the more important, and therefore the most needed, work of this character to be done under specific
appropriations, has contributed greatly to the efficiency of the Service.
Considerable embarrassment has resulted from insufficiency of the
appropriation for salaries of keepers, and a deficiency appropriation
under this head became necessary to provide for these salaries for the
fiscal year.
The estimates submitted for the increase and maintenance of the



LXXXIV REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.
Light-House Establishment for the fiscal year 1900 have been carefully
prepared and are conservative in amounts. Their careful consideration
by Congress is asked.
The recommendation of last year, that provision be made for increased
clerical force in the office of the Light-House Board and for more suitable office accommodations in a separate building, is renewed.
The Board has taken the initiatory steps to obtain and compile
detailed information in regard to the light-house service in the
recently acquired foreign possessions of the United States, with a view
of preparing estimates and formulating recommendations for the
administration of this portion of the Service at the proper time. This
matter will be made the subject of special recommendations at a later
day.
LIFE-SAVING SERVICE.

The Life-Saving Establishment, at the close of the fiscal year, embraced 264 stations, of which number 192 were situated on the coasts of
the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico, 56 on the American coasts
of the Great Lakes, 1 at the Falls of the Ohio Eiver, Louisville, Ky.,
and 15 on the Pacific Coast.
There were within the scope of the Service 402 disasters to documented vessels, having on board 3,113 persons, of whom only 12 were
lost. The estimated value of the vessels was $5,861,320, and that of
the cargoes $1,307,070, making the aggregate value of property
imperiled $7,168,390. Of this amount, $6,410,530 was saved and
$757,860 lost. The number of vessels totally lost was 59.
The number of disasters to undocumented craft, comprising sailboats,
rowboats, scows, etc., was 365, involving 874 persons, 10 of whom perished. The value of property involved is estimated at $199,705, of
which amount $177,825 was saved and $21,880 lost.
The following statement shows the aggregate number of disasters and
their results:

The total number of disasters during the year was much larger
than appears in the records of any former year. It is noted, however,
that the loss of life was only 22, as against 53 during the year 1897,
when the total number of disasters was not nearly so great, and is
considerably less in proportion to the number of disasters than in any
previous year.
Besides the number of persons saved from vessels of all kinds, 56



REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

LXXXV

others, who had fallen from wharves, piers, etc., were rescued under
circumstances of such peril as must have proved fatal in many cases
but for the prompt and skillful aid of the surfmen.
The life-saving crews saved and assisted to save during the year 471
vessels, valued with their cargoes at $2,868,655. Of these vessels, they
saved without outside assistance 349, valued with their cargoes at
$861,700, with a loss or damage of only $8,380. In the remaining 122
instances they united with other agencies—wrecking vessels, tugs, revenue cutters, etc.—in saving property valued at $1,980,490, out of an
amount imperiled estimated at $2,006,955.
Assistance of minor importance was rendered to 430 other vessels in
distress. The crews also warned from danger 226 vessels, 215 by night
signals and 11 by day signals. The loss of life and property thus averted
can not be estimated, but that many disasters were prevented is evident
from the circumstances under which the warnings were given.,
The net expenditure for the maintenance of the Service for the fiscal
year was $1,497,676.35. The sum of $70,000 was appropriated for the
maintenance of the stations as coast signal stations during June and
July, on account of the war with Spain, of which $56,952 was expended.
This expenditure is included in the sum above stated as the cost of
maintaining the Service.
Six new stations, located, respectively, at Damariscove Island, Maine;
Salisbury Beach, Massachusetts; Old Harbor, near Chatham Beach,
Massachusetts; Isle of Wight, north of Ocean City, Maryland; Lake
View Beach, near Port Huron, Michigan ; and Petersons Point, Gray's
Harbor, Washington, were completed during the year. All, with the
exception of the station at Petersons Point, have been equipped and
placed in commission. There has been some unavoidable delay in
equipping the latter station, but it will soon be ready for service.
Contracts were also entered into for the construction of two other
stations, one at Great Boars Head in the town of Hampton, New Hampshire, and one at Sandy Point, on the north end of Block Island, Ehode
Island. These are now approaching completion.
The stations at Mantoloking, Island Beach, Ship Bottom, Little Egg,
Brigantine, Pecks Beach, Corson Inlet, and Holly Beach, New Jersey,
having become unserviceable by reason of age, and not being adapted •
to the present demands of the Service, are being replaced by new and
appropriate buildings. A new station is also under construction on
Hog Island (Broadwater), coast of Virginia, in place of the old one, no
longer suitable.
Extensive repairs and improvements have been made to stations in
the First district, coasts of Maine and New Hampshire, and in the Ninth
district, coasts of Lakes Ontario and Erie.
The telephone lines of the Service have been considerably extended
and much improved. The old line along a large portion of the New
Jersey coast, which, from its trying location and contiguity to other



LXXXVI REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.
lines, including electric-light and trolley wires, was particularly liable
to derangement, has been superseded by a new metallic circuit, which is
working admirably, and other improvements and safeguards have been
provided elsewhere as far as possible. Copper wire is being substituted for galvanized-iron wire on the coasts of Cape Cod, Long Island,
Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina as rapidly as
possible.
The facilities heretofore afforded by the telephone system to maritime
exchanges and other commercial interests have been enlarged and perfected as conditions have permitted. Information of all disasters of
consequence, occurring within the scope of th^ Service, is now promptly
transmitted to the general telegraph system of the country, by which
means it speedily reaches all important commercial centers. The lines
now extend along the coasts a distance of about 800 miles, and nearly all
the stations in the Service are thus brought within ready communication
with each other, with the district offices, and with headquarters at
Washington.
The possibility of hostile demonstrations along the Atlantic and Gulf
seaboard, after the declaration of war between Spain and the United
States, directed the attention of the Government to the necessity of a line
of coast signal stations. It was necessary that these should be sufficiently
numerous and near the coast to immediately discover the presence of
the enemy's vessels and to receive and impart information from or to
American vessels in the offing, as well as to communicate with headquarters in Washington without delay. The immediate availability of
the life-saving stations was suggested* The result was that of the 233
coast signal stations established, 139 were life-saving stations, a special
act of Congress, having been passed upon the recommendations of the
Secretary of the Navy and the Secretary of the Treasury, authorizing
such stations as might be found necessary to be kept open and manned
during the months of June and July, when they would otherwise have
been closed.
The special adaptation of the stations and their instant availability
consisted in the fact that they were already well located, manned by
men trained to the necessary duties, and familiar with the signals of
• the international code. The crews were required in any event to patrol
the beaches adjacent to their respective stations every night, and in
thick weather during the day, as well as to maintain a constant day
watch in fair weather, and any information they might obtain could be
immediately transmitted to the headquarters of the Army or Navy at
Washington through the telegraph and telephone system above described. Fortunately they were not called upon to note the appearance
of an enemy, but the value of their presence as a measure of safeguard is
in no wise diminished. The Superintendent of the Coast Signal Service
reports that the system would have been entirely adequate to perform
any duty of the kind which might have arisen, and that it served a

valuable purpose in keeping the Navy Department advised of the movement of Government vessels, etc., the service rendered in some instances
being of great importance.
Although established as a peace organization in the interests of commerce and humanity, the facility with which the life-saving stations
were utilized as military outposts forcibly calls attention to the fact that
the Government, without realizing it, had equipped itself in time of
peace with a practical coast guard, instructed and drilled in every essential requirement for duty in case of war, and affords the gratifying
assurance that in this respect at least no emergency in the future can be
so sudden as to find the country unprepared, while nothing whatever is
added to the expense of the military arm when the nation is at peace.
STATE BONDS OWNED BY T H E UNITED STATES.

The attention of Congress is again invited to the nonpaying State
stocks and bonds formerly in the Indian trust fund and now belonging
to the United States.
It is recommended that legislation be enacted by which settlements
may be effected and collections made of the amounts due. Under laws
of recent date the cases of Arkansas and Tennessee are now in process
of settlement.

approval, and the case is now being considered preparatory to a report
to Congress thereon.

No. 263, Fifty-fourth Congress,-second session.
PUERTO RICO.

An important question, which will no doubt demand consideration
in Congress at an early day, is the money situation in Puerto Eico.
The existing currency of that island consists of silver coins known as
pesos and centavos. The peso is of the weight and fineness of the Spanish piece of 5 pesetas and corresponds in both respects to the 5-franc
pieces of the Latin Union. Its bullion value, compared to the bullion
value of the American dollar, is as 93.. 5 is to 100. The centavo is onehundredth of a peso, and the smaller coins consist of pieces of 20 centavos
and 40 centavos, these being the exact counterparts in weight and fineness
of the Spanish pieces of 1 and 2 pesetas and the French coins of 1 and
2 francs.
The Puerto Eican coins bear no fixed relation to gold, not being anywhere redeemable in the yellow coin. They were introduced into the
island by Spain in 1895, and by a forced exchange were substituted for
Mexican coins, which had previously constituted the principal money
medium. The best estimates obtainable place the volume of this
silver money now circulating in Puerto Eico at 5,500,000 pesos. The fact
that the Spanish Government put the same quantity of fine silver into the
peso as it did into the 5-peseta Spanish coin indicates a purpose
to have maintained the two on a parity. If so, the purpose was not
accomplished; the Puerto Eican coins quickly fell below the value of
the coins of the home government, and have since had no established
relation in value to them. The oscillation in value as related to gold
coin has been constant, rising and falling, as affected by the state of
exchanges between Puerto Eico and its foreign markets.
It is unnecessary here to point out at any length the general evil
results upon industry and commerce of a currency medium so out of
harmony with the world's money as to induce a widely fluctuating rate
of exchange. It may be instructive to consider them as illustrated in
Puerto Eico. Situated as that island now is, with a circulating medium
void of any established relation to the world's money of commerce—
gold—it is exposed, to the fullest extent, to such evil results. A brief
statement of facts will make this apparent. Dating back to 1894, the
peso has oscillated in its power to buy sterling bills on London, or bills
on New York payable in American money, as follows : In 1894 the
average value of the peso, thus tested, was 65.76 cents; in 1895 it was
60.38 ; in 1896 it was 63.95; in 1897 it was 60.10; in 1898 it was 58.70.
But these averages by no means represent steady, continuous values.
Each year, each day of the year, the fluctuation has been wide. The




REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY. LXXXIX
limit of this fluctuation was, in 1894, 18 per cent; in 1895, 20 per
cent; in 1896, 10 per cent; in 1897, 11 per cent.
Upon this wavering, uncertain, variable money medium the commercial and industrial affairs of the island have been conducted. The
determining influence upon the value of Puerto Eican money seems to
have been the state of the foreign exchanges. When exports of island
products—sugar, tobacco, and coffee—were large, the desire to convert
the value of these products, realized abroad, into the domestic money,
creating as it did an extra demand for it, caused the peso to rise, or,
what is equivalent, it caused exchange to fall. From whatever point
viewed, the result was the same in its effect upon the producer—he
was deprived of a just realization on his products. This unfortunate
currency condition was a tax upon his enterprise and industry.
Contrariwise, when foreign bills were not in supply, because crops
had been marketed, and when those engaged in importing wares and
merchandise from abroad were under necessity of settling their accounts
in London or New York, the offering of domestic money to the bankers
and brokers in exchange for drafts on London or New York increased
in volume, exchange rose in price, or, what is equivalent, the peso fell
in its power to exchange for the world's money.
Whichever way looked at, the effect was the siime in raising to the
merchant, and through him to the consumer, the cost of all products
purchased abroad. The domestic and the wage-worker were the unconscious but the real victims of these financial derangements. The only
beneficiaries were the speculator and the exchange dealer, for to these
two it is an axiom that the wider the range of fiuctuation, the greater
the range for possible profits.
It is highly important that American capital should find no obstacles
in its transfer to and from Puerto Eico, if the United States and the
island alike are to reap the benefits which ought to flow from their
proximity, their new relations, and from the enterprising commercial
spirit of our people. A wide difference in the rate of exchange, occasioned by the use of a differing and unrelated currency, is a serious obstacle to the transfer of capital, as it is to legitimate industry.
The obstacle can and ought to be removed. It is therefore suggested that, at the proper time, action be taken by
Congress to assimilate the currency of Puerto Eico to that of the United
States, so far and so rapidly as this can be done without unduly disturbing existing conditions and contract relations in Puerto Eico.
This, it is believed, can be accomplished by making customs dues in
the island payable in American money, yet receiving the silver pesos
and centavos at a fixed relation to our dollar. The limited amount of
Puerto Eican money would thus find an important avenue where a
uniform value on the basis arranged would be realized. This avenue
would probably be broad enough to give the assurance needed to keep
the peso and its minor subdivisions current through the island at the



XC

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

custom-house valuation. If any doubt should arise as to the sufficiency
of such a provision, it could be made the duty of the Secretary of the
Treasury to give American coin in direct exchange for the Puerto
Eican coin at the custom-house ratio whenever in his opinion it should
be necessary so to do in order to maintain the ratio established.
The rate or ratio to be adopted should be determined by the fair
average of the Puerto Eican coins during the last three or five years in
their power to purchase bills of exchange on London or New York. If
the information necessary for fixing the fair ratio be lacking, the subject might be referred to a commission of experts, who, after hearing
testimony from merchants, bankers, and wage-earners in Puerto Eico,
could undoubtedly fix the ratio based upon the specific facts presented
to them.
From information fairly to be relied upon, it appears that the island
coins have had a value in domestic exchanges and in the purchase of
sterling bills considerably above their bullion value, measured by the
world's price for silver. It would seem just and wise to adopt this
local value in the establishment of a fixed ratio to the United States
standard. To adopt the bullion value of the currency in fixing such a
ratio would seriously disturb existing conditions in the value of wages
and work injustice to contract relations between debtors and creditors.
If a laborer's wages be 1 peso per day, and the average power of
that coin to purchase what his needs require be equal to 60 cents
gold, then to reduce the value of the coin in which he is paid to 40
cents would by so much destroy the reward of his labor, although his
nominal compensation should remain the same. On the other hand, to
raise the value of the peso to the value of our dollar (though the disparity in weight and fineness between our silver dollar and the peso is
small) would operate to increase the labor cost to the employer to a
point where the product obtained might not justify by its market price
the cost of producing it. This, of course, would depress industry and
throw labor out of employment.
Again, the relations between debtors and creditors call for equitable
and just consideration. It is estimated that in the form of mortgages,
etc., there is an indebtedness of some twenty or twenty-five millions,
and that the current shorter-time credit obligations aggregate about
the same in amount. The average value of the peso for some time
past is the best measure of the value that was transferred when these
evidences of debt were issued. To make an arbitrary change so as
either to enhance or reduce its general average value would therefore
work hardship and injustice. The average power of the peso, while
widely fluctuating between the two limits, has ranged from 160 to
190—that is to say, at times 160 pesos were as effective in paying a
debt br buying goods in London or New York as 100 American dollars;
at the other extreme, it has required 190 pesos to be as effective as 100
American dollars.



REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

XCI

Subject to correction from a better knowledge, I think all interests
would meet in giving a flxed value of 1661 to the peso—that is to
say, the peso shall be maintained at the value of 60 cents, first by
receiving it in payment for customs at^that price; second, by giving
for it, when required, American money at that rate of exchange. It is
by a similar process that our own silver money has been kept on a
parity with our gold coins.
It is not contemplated in the considerations here presented to retire
the Puerto Eican coins—certainly not until the coins of the United
States have become familiar and acceptable to the people. There are
three things to which a simple people cling with tenacity—their language, their religion, their money of account. The peso and its fractional part, the centavo, are terms made familiar, by use, to the laborer
and the tradesman. These coins, valued and fixed as above suggested,
would no doubt for some time be preferred to the American coin, which
to their minds would present the apparent contradiction of a coin of the
same material, possessing less bulk and weight, yet carrying with it a
higher exchangeable value. They would doubt at first, refuse to believe,
and cling to the terms^^ peso" and ^'centavo," rather than adopt the
really effective ones, '^dollars" and ^'cents." Therefore the peso, if
received through the custom house or for other taxes, or if received in
exch ange for American money at the Government agency, should be again
disbursed or reexchanged as demand from the people might require. In
fact, it may be necessary, in order to give absolute steadiness t o t h e
peso, not only to receive or redeem it at a fixed price to be again disbursed at the same price, but it may also be necessary to coin at our
mints an additional amount of pesos and their fractional parts for use in
the island. If, as suggested, customs dues be made receivable in
American money and the peso be received as equal to 60 cents, there
is little or no danger that it will fall below that value anywhere in the
island. Being effective at 60 cents for customs dues, it will not be
exchanged elsewhere for less. But this would not prevent its rising
above that value.
It is now apparent that the influx of American money is having the
effect to give the peso a higher value. The peso being the domestic
money, familiar to all the people of all classes, it becomes desirable to
exchange American money for the domestic, and the pressure to do
this raises artificially the exchangeable price of the peso. The broker
and the money changer know how to make the most of the opportunity.
To counteract this oi)eration, which tends to repress the introduction
of capital in the form of money, it may be necessary, as before stated,
to coin on Government account an additional stock of the domestic
money, which shall be freely offered in exchange at the uniform price,
this new supply, together with the old stock, to be received at the custom house or otherwise redeemed at the same price.
At the risk of prolixity, which the importance of the subject might



XCn

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

excuse, I submit this additional thought for such consideration as it may
merit. The present Puerto Eican coins carry the emblems of Spanish sovereignty. Whether or not additions to the coinage be made, new coins
should be struck, of the same weight and fineness, upon which should
be imprinted proper emblems of our new relations, and these should
be substituted for the old. By melting up the old as they come in and
by paying out the new, such a substitution can be easily and quite rapidly effected. Gradually, custom and use would establish American
money, whether of silver, gold, or paper, as the medium of exchange
and payment.
Then, it may be expected that the present Puerto Eican money will not
be called fora American money and American terms of account and
payment having superseded those now in use. Then, upon the Government—either of the island itself or upon the United States Government,
as may be determined—the loss will fall resulting from the redemption of the Puerto Eican coins at an overvaluation. If the peso be
rated at 60 cents, as herein suggested, and if the bullion in the coin
remains at its present value of 40 cents, and, lastly, if the amount of the
silver money referred to be correctly estimated at 5,500,000 pesos, the
loss would amount to $1,100,000 American money. This would be the
ultimate cost of relieving the island from the grievous ills of a bad currency system. The benefits would be immediate, and, it may be hoped,
would be continuous for all time. The cost, when it began to be experienced, would be distributed over a series of years, and might easily
be covered by proper appropriations from the revenues of the island.
The necessity of securing stability to the peso is fully recognized by
all parties in Puerto Eico, although opinions differ as to the ratio which
ought to be observed in relating it to American money. Suggestions
have also appeared in favor of an immediate and coercive exchange of
the insular coins for our money upon a ratio to be determined. While
this could be made operative to introduce American money and American . terms of account at an earlier period than by the course above
recommended, it is open to some objections. It would throw confusion
into the minds of the simpler-minded people and excite suspicion as
to the purity of our intention. It would create an immediate deficit
for the difference between the bullion value of their coins and the
price for which they were exchanged. This deficit would have to be
faced and provided for at once, while by the slower process that
deficit would be spread over a period of years, and could be more
easily met.
I have so far spoken as if silver coin were the only medium of exchange
in Puerto Eico. Such is not the fact. The Spanish Bank of Puerto Eico,
holding a franchise from the Spanish Government, has been privileged
to issue its notes to the extent of three times its capital, and the note
issues of this bank at one time outstanding have been as high as
2,600,000 pesos. Under the circumstances now existing the notes of

the bank are not in favor, and it is not improbable that its affairs will
be liquidated. This being so, the function which it has in the past discharged should be assumed and prosecuted, within proper legal limitations, by some one bank.organized with ample capital and with the right
to establish branches at convenient points, and to issue its own notes to
circulate as money. Or, if this should not be favorably considered,
then an act extending to the island the rights and privileges of the
national banking system might merit approval.

will be found particulars (in the way of information) as to the issue of
$200,000,000 3 per cent bonds, authorized by the act of June 13, 1898.
When the bill was reported, which after amendment became the law,
some doubt was expressed by those best acquainted with such matters
whether bonds bearing so low a rate as 3 per cent could be sold except
at a discount. There were substantial facts cited in support of such
opinion. The then recent declaration of war with Spain had disturbed
the always sensitive conditions of trade and finance. The morbidly
timid along our eastern and northern coast were in a state of more or
less alarm. The simpler-minded depositors in savings banks made
withdrawals of their funds; the commercial banks in the larger cities
sympathetically suffered through loss of cash reserves to savings institutions. The rate of interest rose; the price of securities declined.
Even old issues of United States bonds fell to a point where they would
yield to the investor from 3.1 to 3.25 per cent per annum upon an
investment then made. Such was the condition of the financial market
in the latter part of April and the earlier part of May last.
There was another factor, however, which operated to insure a
successful negotiation of the new loan at 3 per cent, which it is well
to note. That factor was the self-interest of national banks. These
institutions as a whole then enjoyed an unavailed-of privilege under
the law to issue nearly four hundred millions in circulating notes.
True, the condition precedent to the exercise of such privilege was the
deposit of United States bonds, the price of which in the public market
had so advanced as to destroy the motive of profit for the exercise
of the privilege. Owing to the feature of the national bankiug act
which restricts the issue of circulating notes to 90 per cent of the face
of the bonds deposited as security, a 3 per cent interest bond at par,
when used for the purpose indicated, yields better returns to the banks
than 4 or 6 per cent bonds at the rate of premium then or now prevailing. It is demonstrable that the 3 per cent bonds at par would afford
to national banks the means of obtaining through circulating notes a
profit of substantially 1.4 per cent on the amount invested. That this
profit would furnish a sufficient motive for the banks as a whole to take
up $200,000,000 in bonds need not be argued; it is self-evident. These

conditions practically insured the successful negotiation at par ol the
loan at the rate of 3 per cent. This was quickly perceived in the money
market, and, joined to easier conditions in general finances, it operated
to establish a prospective premium on the anticipated issue ; in fact, at
the moment when the act was approved, the whole issue of $200,000,000
could have been sold at a premium of probably 2i per cent. This could
hardly have been foreseen, and it was evidently the opinion of Congress
also that a wide distribution of the obligations among the people, at the
uniform price of par, was of more value to public interests than the
realization of a possible bonus from small groups of professional dealers.
The discriminating mandate of the law was thus expressed :
, The bonds authorized by this section shall be first offered at par as a
popular loan under such regulations, prescribed by the Secretary of
the Treasury, as will give opportunity to the citizens of the United
States to participate in the subscriptions to such loan, and in allotting
said bonds the several subscriptions of individuals shall be first accepted,
and the subscriptions for the lowest amounts shall be first allotted.
Obedient to the fair spirit of the law, the Treasury Department sought
by every means to extend the opportunity for subscription to all the
people. Every newspaper in the United States was supplied with
interesting and instructive information relative to the issue, which,
with few exceptions, was patriotically and free of charge prominently
displayed. Blank forms for subscriptions, with circulars of information, were supplied to more than 22,000 money-order post-offices, every
express office, and all the banks. A period of thirty-one days was
allowed for the receipt of subscriptions. A summary of subscriptions
received, classified as to amounts, is here given:

The burden of work thus suddenly thrown upon the Department it
is difficult to fully comprehend. In the mere matter of names and
addresses, the work of writing—by reason of necessary duplication—was



REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

XCV

equal to a detailed schedule embodying several millions of names,
with the address—town, county, and state—of each fully extended. To
accomplish the work imposed, an addition for three months or more of
nearly six hundred persons to the regular working force of the Department was necessary. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing was
correspondingly overtaxed. The immense increase in the number of
bonds of small denominations, as compared with any previous issues,
is a partial explanation. The acquisition and installation of twelve highgrade power presses, made in anticipation of increased operations, alone
saved that Bureau from a complete breakdown.
That the popular-loan method so successfully used on this occasion- gave general satisfaction to the people is beyond dispute. Led to
believe—whether justly or unjustly—that on former occasions advantage had been taken of public necessities by intermediaries who made
^unfair profit between the Government and the people, they hailed with
satisfaction this attempt to deal directly with the citizen. There was a
great moral value in this, difficult to estimate in terms of money, yet
worthy of consideration in the mind of the statesman. Was the operation advantageous, also, from an economic standpoints As already
indicated, a bonus of perhaps five millions could have been secured by
offering the loan to competitive bidding. That was the sacrifice made
in order to place the loan directly with the people at the uniform price
of par.
The act now under consideration was no doubt influenced by the theory,
if not definitely shaped on it, that the dissemination of Government
securities among the people would attach the holders thereof by closer
bonds of sympathy to the Government, and secure from all such a more
zealous watchfulness over public affairs; for it is this kind of watchful
interest which best secures the welfare and perpetuity of a free state.
If this motive operated in the legislative councils, its practical value
was not so permanent as could be hoped for. As before stated, allotments were made to less than 325,000 persons, aggregating $200,000,000.
From the moment the bonds were issued until the present time, a movement of concentration has been observable. At this time $77,361,000,
the original holdings ofabout 116,000 subscribers, have passed into the
ownership of 1,001 persons, firms, and corporations.. To this extent the
moral value of private ownership has already disappeared.
The loan was promptly taken; in fact, it was subscribed for many
times over. From this it may be assumed that similar results would
follow on future occasions. It will not do to rest securely on such
an assumption. In fixing the conditions of a proposed bond as to time
and rate of interest. Congress is in essence formulating a proposal.
The public—the investor—is'^yet to determine whether or not the proposal is satisfactory.

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

less than par, it must so fix the rate of interest and time of payment as
to make the new security somewhat more attractive than outstanding
issues—price now being considered. It must also make allowance for
a disturbance in the previous market equilibrium. A large addition
to a previous supply, other things being the same, tends to reduce the
price, whether of commodities or securities. I repeat that in a legislative act it is impossible to forecast and exactly determine these ruling
factors. Economically considered, the part of wisdom would seem to
be to provide a sufficient margin of new advantages in interest, or
otherwise, to float the loan successfully, and then allow the market, by
fair competition, to reduce the margin thus provided to the narrowest
limit. The hew bonds were properly fixed at 3 per cent. Strict business logic dictated that they should enter into competition with the
older issues: it was the only way by which their true relative value
could be determined. Instead of this, the whole issue was offered to the^
subscribing public at the uniform price of par. Nevertheless, the
experiment may be considered a justifiable one, and it worked out in
a way to strengthen the national credit. From it, however, useful
suggestion may be derived.
It is evident that an attempt by Congress to fix the proper rate of
interest to justify an offer of the Government's obligations at par will
always be subject to one of two dangers—
First, if the rate of interest be fixed too low—time and circumstances
being considered—the loan may fail, with the consequence of serious
derangements to the Treasury; or.
Second, if the rate of interest be fixed too high, and the issue offered
at par, while it will be eagerly taken, the result may be a great economic waste to the Treasury.
The considerations thus presented lead to the conclusion that while
the features intended to make the loan a popular on^ should be preserved, provision should also be made to secure to the Government the
highest value attainable under the fair operation of the popular-loan
principle. It is but a commonplace to allege that in its relation to business affairs the Government should have strict regard to the principles
which elsewhere and everywhere obtain, i. e., in the purchase of
material and supplies required for public use, it should—as it does—
seek the lowest price for the same goods; and, conversely, in the sale of
what it may have to sell, whether of material or of its own interestbearing obligations, it should also seek to realize the highest attainable
price. Should exigencies arise—not now observable—under which further issues under the act of June 13 should be made necessary, it would
seem wise to modify in some way the mandatory provision which would
now require an offer of the same to the people at par. With a market
premium of 6 per cent now established, and conditions remaining the
same, such a proceeding would involve an inexcusable economic waste.
On the other hand, as before noted, it is not to be expected that a previous market premium can be fully realized on a large addition to th©



REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

market supply. I believe that, with some extension of discretionary
power to the administrative department ofthe Government in this connection, the popular features of the present act can be fully preserved,
while the risk of undue sacrifice in maintaining that valuable principle
may be obviated.
Under the provisions of the act one-tenth of 1 per cent of the amount
ofthe bonds authorized was allowed '^to pay the expense of preparing,
advertising, and shipping the same." The records show an average cost
to the Government of 1 per cent as the expense of negotiating and
distributing securities in the past. The experiment proves that the
allowance of one-tenth for expenses in connection with the late issue was
inadequate. Instead of one-tenth, or two-twentieths, of 1 per cent, the
total cost rose to nearly eighteen hundredths of 1 per cent, distributed
as follows:

CURRENCY AND BANKING.

In submitting my report, I feel it my duty to impress upon Congress,
as best I may, the important subject of currency and banking reform.
It is the misfortune of evil conditions to produce derangement and
hinder progress, which, if long continued, so accustom the subject of
them to their existence as to create in him apathetic indifference to
needful and healthful reforms. Indeed, it is a familiar fact that individuals, families, and nations ignorantly suffer under the illusion that
the very source of their affliction is itself an agency for good. Something like this has marked our financial history for thirty years.
Making progress in spite of all obstacles and embarrassments to commerce and industry, we ascribe the advancement to the causes which
have really hampered and disconcerted the forward and upward movement. With a financial system condemned by the judgment of the most
experienced and wise, both at home and abroad, its evils illustrated in
daily business, and emphasized in recurring panics, we fail, with an
obtuse timidity, to face the questions which must be met and rightly
solved before industry and commerce can be established upon enduring
conditions of security.
The arguments against Government issues of paper money as a
medium for commercial exchanges have been fully made and need not
PI 98

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

be repeated in detaih Its rigidity, its failure to meet demands where
demand is most urgent, the dependency of the whole industrial structure
upon the state of the revenue and public expenditure—these are important links in that chain of argument. Even in a state of foreign war, the
civilized demand of both contestants is for due respect to private property and individual contract relationships. How much more in a state
of peace, in a free state, should private rights and contract relationships
be given immunity from the incidental, though serious, effects now
suffered through perturbations in Government finances. The menace
to our domestic affairs, several times recurring from a threatened change
in the standard under which they are carried on, and our foreign trade
settled, has been a companion evil—perhaps the greater of the two.
The cure for these evils is not difficult to find. It lies within the
easy range of Congressional action. Nor is the remedy one to inflict
even temporary pains or penalties on the body politic. The healthful,
stimulating effect of right action in these directions would be experienced
with the first sense of assurance that the desired end was to be
accomplished.
The proposal to substitute bank issues for Government notes is opposed
with many honest prejudices and assailed by bitter denunciations. The
first arise from a failure to comprehend the true philosophy of a paper
currency, and must be patiently considered. The latter obscure the
question by reckless statements, charging that all propositions for currency reform are bank conspiracies to exploit the people. Eeferring
to such proposals, an eminent speaker recently warned his uninstructed
hearers: ^'These banks will become cormorants to eat up your substance, control your politics, and warp the political views in all the
communities. Send a man to Congress to help defeat this great evil."
Such tirades against reason, and such appeals to prejudice and ignorance,
the statesman must oppose by the simple truth. Is a system of bank
credit currency, in its ability to meet the varying wants of an industrious commercial people, superior to the issues of Government paper
money? If that question be answered affirmatively, it may be safely
left to time to show that the nature of the banker differs not at all from
the general nature of men in other callings. As every other man who
gets an honest living must live by service rendered in the sphere of
his activities, so the banker must perform faithfully and well his function or fail of his fair reward. The motives for his action are the same.
It is not for the benefit of the banker, or any particular class, that the
plea for currency reform is urged ; it is urged on behalf of the whole
people, who will be the recipients of the benefits thereof. And it is on
this ground only that the claim is entitled to consideration.
I shall not be outside of my duty if I venture to point out, in at
least one important respect, the advantages to the poorer districts of
the country of a properly constituted bank currency. It may be done
by fairly describing the course of the financial movement as it now



REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

XCIX

goes on, and by presenting in contrast the movement as it would go on
under the conditions advocated. It is a familiar fact that, in the period
of harvesting and crop moving, the currency is strongly drawn from
the centers to the country districts. When this movement is over,
the currency again tends toward the centers. The currency flows
to the center to pay loans occasioned by its use and other general
indebtedness, and also to secure the benefit of interest to the country
banker for a portion of his funds which in a dull period would otherwise lie unemployed in his hands. At present, the currency so sent
consists almost entirely of legal-tender notes and Treasury notes—that is
to say, in the money which the law recognizes as lawful reserve. Thus
received by the banks in the money centers, it becomes a reserve for
deposits in the relation of one to four. Now, deposits may be increased
by loans as well as by the deposit of cash. A loan for ten thousand or
a hundred thousand goes to the borrower's credit upon the bank's
books, and swells the deposit account by so much. True, the borrower
may check against this fund, but his check may also be deposited in
the same bank, in which case it is a mere transfer to another account;
or, if it be deposited in another bank and paid in money by the lending
bank, it is still a transfer. The total deposits of all the banks are
swelled by this original loan.
In confirmation that this expansive movement is fairly described, I
quote from the New York Herald of November 13 as follows: ^^Comparing yesterday's [clearing house] statement with that of five weeks
ago, it appears that the banks hold 13 millions more money, and have
expanded their loans by the surprising amount of 51i millions,<the
increase in 'deposits' resulting from these two items being no less than
66 millions." It can be easily perceived that this possibility of increasing loans against an inflow of reserve funds in the proportion of four
to one is a temptation to which the city bank is likely to yield. It
must be remembered that this inward movement of currency from the
country occurs at the time of year when commercial activities are the
least and the general requirements for the use of loans in the interior
are the smallest. The effort of the banks at the centers to increase their
loans causes interest to fall. The fall in the rate of interest causes
interest and dividend-paying securities to rise. The rise in securities
induces speculative buying. The speculative buyer becomes the bank's
borrowing customer. The banker is thus enabled to ' ' p u t out his
funds," as he is apt to term it, though he really does no such thing.
He keeps his funds, but, in the way described, he swells his deposit
liability until his funds on hand are made answerable to the rule of
one of cash to four of liabilities, or 25 per cent against his "deposits."
It is in the condition above described, with varying degrees
of regularity and intensity, that the financial status is found when
the crops in the West and South approach harvest—that is to say,
a maximum of loans and deposits; a minimum in cash reserves.



C

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

During the season until then, the country banker has found that
his drafts and checks on his Eastern correspondents, distributed to
his customers, supplied their needs for instruments of exchange and
payment; but he finds that for the payment of farm wages, the purchase and transfer of farm products, such instruments are not adequate;
cash is required for these purposes, either in metallic money or
paper currency. This forces him to make requisition in the form of
money by express on his Eastern balances. Nay, more; if crops be large
and prices good, he is forced to supplement his own resources by borrowing for a period at the centers. His correspondent at the center, in meeting his requisitions for the money due his country customer, is obliged to
take it from what had before constituted his legal reserve. This disturbs the equilibrium of relationships. To recover his position, he turns
upon the street and calls in a portion of his loans. If the interior banker,
after thus calling for the balances due him, asks in addition for a loan,
the city banker is often obliged to inform him that "money is very
close " and he can not accommodate him. It must be noted also that
the effort of the city banker to restore his impaired reserve by calling
money from the street does not accomplish that direct result. There
is no money " i n the street;" it is all in bank vaults, and the total
stock cannot be augmented except by inducing it to come in from without. ' What does result is a forced liquidation, a fall in prices of securities, arise in interest sufficient to induce outside money to come in.
In this process the merchant and the manufacturer find it difficult to
negotiate their credits. They also are told " money is tight," and that
they must withhold applications for discount favors.
I forbear to follow into further detail the unprofitable and vexatious
movement. Gradually, after more or less strain and anxiety, sometimes
bordering on panic, sometimes resulting in panic, a readjustment is
secured. Crops from the interior—not seldom forced from the producer's
hands, with little regard to price, because of his inability to borrow
from his local banker—move to the seaboard. The strain on the country is relaxed. Again currency in the form of "reserve funds" moves
to the center. Again one dollar thus received becomes effective as
reserve for four dollars of liability. Money is quoted easy, as the prospect for summer dullness becomes assured. " T h e street" breathes
easier, stocks and securities become "firm," and the movement toward
an expansion in loans, with its attendant phenomenon of an increase in
deposits, is again observed, to be again followed by restriction and
probable distress as the active season in productive industry and trade
again appears.
Whoever has followed this delineation of our financial movement,
and those who are familiar with the facts which are thus portrayed,
ought not to have trouble in perceiving that the bottom cause of the
irregular and deranging effects described is to be found in a fixed
volume of paper money clothed with full powers of a legal tender.



REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

CI

Upon this money—itself a credit obligation—other credit obligations,
in the form of bank deposits through bank loans, may be built up in
the proportion of four to one. With the volume of paper money thus
fixed—with no natural movement toward its retirement when not
needed in legitimate trade—the tendency to build the four-story struc-.
ture upon it as a permanent base is irresistible. The withdrawal of
the base by those who really own it causes the structure to vibrate and
threatens it with a fall.
Consider now, as briefly as may be, the practical working of a banknote currency—nonlegal tender—if substituted for the paper money
issued by the Government. Verification may be found by those who
will look for it in systems now current in France, Germany, Scotland,
and Canada; or, if our own records be preferred, the New England
system of forty years ago, or those then in vogue in Indiana, Iowa, and
Louisiana, will be equally good examples. Under such a system the
financial movement may thus be described:
Commencing as before with an inward movement of funds from the
exterior to the centers, the money forwarded would then consist largely
of bank notes. These received at the centers would not, like the legal
tenders of the present, form a base for expansion. The desire to obtain
legal money in their place would cause the banks receiving them to push
them home for redemption in legal money, but the general effort iri this
direction would neutralizCj to a large degree, the effect desired. Barik
A, sending home the notes of bank B, would be met, not by a payment
in legal money, but as an offset by the presentation of the notes of bank
A. There would be a mutual retirement of their respective bank-note
liabilities. Of course, this precision in offsets would not be the rule,
but the illustration shows the general effect to be the temporary retirement of a currency when it can not be circulated in the service of the
country's trade and exchange. Observe this: The power to lend is not
thus lost; it is temporarily suspended. When, with the recurring
needs of the interior to handle its products of the farm, the factory,
and the mine, the power to issue circulating notes may be summoned into
use, then the needs of industry will coincide with the profit-moving
motives of the banker, and the full value of this latent power will be
experienced, not in the centers, where bank notes are not needed and
will not circulate, but in the interior, where raw products are raised,
and where the busy wheels of shop and factory certify that labor wages
are to be paid.
The power of the bank note, so temporarily suspended, will always
be restored in full upon the call of industry. The power of our present
currency, on the contrary, is not suspended. It is, as pointed out,
inevitably misdirected. It artificially stimulates speculative activity
in securities at the centers. It periodically absorbs the credit powers
at times when they should be made serviceable to the whole country. It
ministers to the speculator, it prejudices the producer, the merchant, and
the manufacturer, though, at last, all suffer from its deranging influences.



CII

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

These are the reasons, the more important reasons, why our banking
system should be reformed and made effective to coriimercial and indus:
trial needs; and these same reasons, with others not here set forth,
call for the elimination, in a safe and proper way, ofthe injurious interference in our currency system by the legal-tender paper money of the
Government.
If it be conceded that the legal-tender money issued by the Government does not possess the qualifications to make it a proper factor in
the country's exchanges of products and manufactures; if the fact also
be admitted that it is a deranging and disturbing factor in its relation
to industry and commerce, then the time has come to substitute for it a
currency which will adequately, economically, and safely meet the evergrowing needs of the country, rapidly developing, as it is, in the power
of production, in the number of its people, and the importance of its
domestic and foreign trade.
Can a bank-note currency be established which will be adequate,
economical, and safe, and thus serve, in a better way than is now served,
the public needs? Limited by space in this presentation, I point to
the countries before named, where these conditions are realized. Our
neighbor on the north, Canada, may be cited as a nearby witness in
the same direction. With power to issue notes as profitable employment for their use in productive industry can be found, the power has
never been overtaxed or exhausted. The rates of interest have varied
but little between the richer provinces of Ontario or Quebec and the
sparsely settled districts of Manitoba. The terms of interest are substantially as favorable to the farmer of the west as to the merchant of
the metropolis.
While these conditions, in contrast with our own, which stimulates
the operation of credit at the centers and starves it at the circumference,
are due in part to other features of its banking system, the influence
of the currency is most important. Certain it is that were bank-note
issues in Canada repressed by restrictive laws, as they are with us, and
if the field of circulation these notes now occupy were filled with the
legal-tender notes of the Dominion, the facilities of banking now enjoyed
on the frontiers would not be afforded. The same tendency toward congestion at the centers and scarcity in the outlying districts would be
there, as it is here, plainly observable.
It is not intended by anything here said to offer the Canadian system
as a model from which we should make exact copy. In certain particulars it would not at present suit our different conditions. The right of
the Can adian banks to issue their notes without any special pledge of security for their redemption; the law which gives to the note holder, in case
of bank failure, priority of claim over the depositors, while not operative to perceived injury, under their system of large banks with small
branches, might, if adopted here, with a multitude of smaU banks,

each independent of the other, result in an unj ustifiable invasion of the
equitable rights of the depositor. The dangers in this regard are ably
discussed and fully illustrated in the annual report of the Comptroller
of the Currency.^ To his argument nothing need be added. While the
question of terms is important in itself, it is nevertheless a subordinate
one.
The facts set forth by the Comptroller relate exclusively to the proposition that the notes of a failed bank shall be a paramount lien upon the
assets for their fuU value before any rights accrue to other creditors.
The issue of notes upon the general assets of national banks may be
made perfectly secure without the requirement that the notes be a first
lien upon their assets. It would only be necessary to award to the note
holder the same ratable proportion ol the assets which went to other
creditors, and to provide that the amount required to pay the difference
be obtained by an assessment upon all the national banks, collected ratably in proportion to their share in the circulation of this character.
The vital question is. What percentage of assessment upon this circulation would be required in order to cover the losses to note holders in
the case of failed banks'? The experience of the national banking system demonstrates that the assessment would be insignificant.
The total circulation of failed banks outstanding at the time of failure, up to October 31,1897, was $20,893,827. The loss upon these notes,
if the security for them had been impaired in the same degree as the
security for other liabilities, would have been $5,379,165, or an annual
average of about $163,000. This loss would have been made good by a
tax of about one-twelfth of 1 per' cent per year upon the circulation of
the solvent banks. A tax of one-fifth of 1 per cent upon the average
circulation of the national banks since the foundation of the system
would have paid such losses up to October 31, 1897, amounting to
$5,379,165 and left a surplus of about $9,000,000 in the guaranty fund.
Whether preference be given to the note holder, as in Canada, or he
be made to take his share of risk with the depositor, as in Germany,
France, and Scotland, or whether the note holder shall be protected by
the special pledge of security as now provided in our national banking
act, these considerations affect the question relatively, not absolutely.
Under either of these conditions provisions may be made which will
furnish to the country a paper money adequate to commercial needs,
economical to the people, and safe in its general workings.
~ In the nature of things, the banker is the proper agency for operating
this important function. He must have motive for his action or he will
not exercise it. Given this motive, he will, like the laborer, the merchant, or the professional man, be diligent in the employment of his
powers. That this motive must be the motive of gain does not differentiate the banker from other working forces of society, whose actions
are healthful and helpful to the social whole.

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY.

In my last report I ventured upon specific recommendations. These
recommendations, if adopted and formulated into law, would, in my
opinion, be curative of the evils herein pointed out. In House bills
10289 and 10333 are embodied a series of measures in some respects
more meritorious. The measures therein proposed are the result of
careful study by expert and experienced men. With some modifications—the reasonable fruit of full discussion—they would, I believe,
meet the country's needs. I commend the Subject to the early and
earnest attention of Congress.
WAR TAXES.

The report ofthe Commissioner of Internal Eevenue^ possesses peculiar interest, indicating, as it does, the operation of the war-revenue act
of June 13, 1898. It shows quite clearly that the aggregate revenue to
be derived therefrom will form a smaller total than was estimated by
the more sanguine of its supporters.
The Commissioner's estimate of $100,000,000 from this source seems
to be fairly justified by the results to the Treasury during the period
from July 1 to the present time. His report goes also to show the friction and.embarrassments which have arisen from the need of interpreting obscurities in the act itself, and the application of such interpretation to specific cases coming under the same general head, yet
differentiated from each other by more or less important particulars.
Many complaints have arisen from those unreconciled to such interpretations or applications, and, granted a well-balanced relation between
revenue and expenditures, it might be well to consider the propriety of
repealing some of the more vexatious features of the act. Until more
settled conditions, however, as to extraordinary expenditures for the
Army and Navy are reached, even such repeal can not be recommended
by this Department. Some verbal amendments, making more clear the
intentions of Congress, are to be desired, and representations in this
direction may be made the subject of a separate communication to
Congress at an early day.

NOTE 1.—Annual interest charge computed on amount of outstanding principal at close of fiscal year, and is exclusive of interest charge on Pacific railway bonds.
NOTE 2.—The figures for July 1, 1879, were made up assuming pending funding operations to have been completed.
NOTE 3.—The temporary loan per act of July 11, 1862, is included in the 4 percenta from 1862 to 1868, inclusive, with the exception of the amount outstanding August 31, 1865, this being the date at which the public debt reached
its highest point. This loan bore interest from 4 per cent to 6 per cent, and was redeeniable on ten days' notice after thirty d a y s ; but being constantly changing, i t n a s been considered more equitable to include the whole amoant
oatstanding as bearing 4 per cent interest on an average for the year.

The aggregate warranted receipts for the year, from all sources, were
therefore $738,549,255.20, as compared with $737,651,925.16 for the
previous year. In view of the extreme variations in the conditions
and circumstances which affected the operations of the two periods,
this practical uniformity of results is remarkable only because it must
be considered as purely accidental. On the side of the disbursements,
however, the influence of events is plainly seen in the increase of
$108,633,087.73. A summary comparison of aggregate transactions

REPORT ON T H E FINANCES.

As all of the accounts from which the foregoing figures are taken are
based upon warrants, and as there was in the Treasury on June 30 an
unusually large sum of money which had then not yet been formally
covered in, the discrepancy between the results shown in the preceding
statements and the actaal assets of the Treasury is more than ordinarily conspicuous. The chief source of the uncovered cash was the
war loan, the first proceeds of which came in on the 14th of June, but
Avere not covered by warra;nt until after the close of the fiscal year.
THE PACIFIC RAILROADS.

In the miscellaneous receipts are included moneys received from
the sale of the Union Pacitic Raih^oad and the Kansas Pacific Railroad.
These exceed by $7,151,593.71 the net increase of receipts for the fiscal
year. Without these moneys the deficiency would have been greater
by their amount. These receipts were:

WAR EXPENDITURES.

The expenditures of both the War and Navy Departments, up to the
close of the fiscal year ending June 30, 1898, were largely increased
on account of the war with Spain. This increase for that period was,
for the War Department, $43,041,732.40, and for the Navy Department,
$24,262,438.51.
For the four months, July, August, September, and October, 1898,
the expenditures of the War Department were $107,520,368.29, being
$81,613,131.40 greater than for the same months in 1897. For the same



TREASURER.

months this year the Navy Department expended $27,459,577.71, which
was $16,014,926 more than it spent in the like period of 1897. Up to
October 31, the war with Spain added to the disbursements of these
two Departments the sum of $164,932,228.31.
STATE OF THE TREASURY.

Without regard to the prospect of revenue or expenditure, the condition of theTreasury was stronger at the close than at the opening of the
fiscal year; for while there was an unimportant decrease in the amount
of the assets, in the fiscal as well as the issue branch of the business,
this shrinkage was more than compensated for by the improvement
which took place in the character of the holdings. A gain of upward
of $26,000,000 in free gold, coupled with an increase of nearly $23,000,000
in absolutely secured deposits with banks, is a very satisfactory offset
to a net loss of $7,500,000 in the total holdings available for the fiscal
operations of the Government. Especially is this acceptable as true
when it is noted that all of these changes were efi'ected at no greater
cost than the loss of so much in silver and Treasury notes.
In summary form, the condition of the fiscal branch of the Treasury's
business on June 30,1897 and 1898, may be stated thus:

In the condition of the issue branch of the business the only considerable change which occurred was in the least important part of it from
the point of view of statistics—the. issue and redemption of currency
certificates. The decrease of some $36,000,000 in the volume of these
certificates outstanding represents simply the withdrawal of this amount
of United States notes; from theTreasury, where they had formerly been
lodged by the national banks for safe keeping.

REPORT ON T H E

FINANCES.

In the two preceding statements are represented an oi one available
assets of the Treasury, which amounted to $874,764,377.23 on June 30,
1897, and to $839,606,736.17 a year later. A consolidated statement of
the live assets is next given, with the addition of certain iteins of
assets not available. As against the aggregate assets of $869,202,941.22
shown by all the accounts on June 30, 1898, the Treasurer's liability to
the generalTreasury fund was $775,751,368.11; one of $66,465,160.04 was
sustained in his capacity as the depositary of public officers, and one of
$26,986,413.07 for moneys paid into his hands but not yet covered by
warrant into the general account. The marked increase under the last
two heads was incident to the war, and was due mostly in the case of
the former to the enlarged advances made to disbursing officers for
military expenditures, and in the case of the latter to the first proceeds
of the 3 per cent loan of $200,000,000.
With these explanations the comparative statement of aggregate
assets and liabilities is given in summary form :

SHIPMENTS OF CURRENCY.

In every year the currents of trade create a varying demand for different denominations of money. During the period of the movement
of the crops, grain, cotton, and sugar, the producing parts ofthe country need small notes for payments to farmers, planters, shippers, and
merchants. Later in every season, as currency settles into the banks
and the financial centers, large denominations are called for, to be used
as reserves and for settlement of large transactions, because of facility
in counting them and the smaller bulk they ofiPer in transportation and
in vaults.
The Treasury Department, to the extent that it provides the currency for the country, seeks to furnish such denominations as will best
serve the business community. In former years this task has presented
serious difficulties. By forethought and care, during the past fiscal
year and the autumn followiug it, a stock of notes of different denominations was provided, through the Bureau of Engraving and Printing,
adequate to any emergency. Although the volume of paper money of



TREASURER.

each kind—United States notes, Treasurynotes, and silver certificates—
is strictly limited by law, exchange of small notes for large denominations
has been readily made. By this process within forty days after the 1st
of September, 1898, Chicago alone received $5,150,000 in small notes.
While the available cash balance in the Treasury has been very large
during the season now closing, the part of it in the form of gold has
been greater than ever before, both absolutely and in its ratio to other
currency. .In previous years the Government has sought for gold, and
readily gave paper currency for it. This year, although the net gold
exceeded the needs of the Treasury, gold coin has been accepted up to
the middle of October to the extent of over $15,000,000, and notes of
small denominations have been granted on demand to facilitate the
business of the people.
The shipments of currency from Washington against deposits of gold
with the assistant treasurer in New York, compare thus during the
periods stated:

The volume of currency in the autumn of three successive years indicates the increased activity in transactions, and doubtless also additions
to the savings of individuals. For illustration, a statenient is presented of gold in circulation, all in denominations of $20 and under,
and of notes of $20 and under, and separately of notes of the larger

REPORT ON T H E FINANCES.

Inquiries are frequently addressed to the Treasurer's Ofiice, relating
to the available currency in the West and I^orthwest. A table has
been prepared, and is below given, as the best general answer to such a
question, showing the.aggregate capital, surplus, and undivided profits
of the national banks located in tbe territory north of the Ohio, and
west of the Mississippi, together with the deposits carried by the same
institutions, in July in each of the last three years:

The data of comparison are the same for each of the years presented,
and while they hardly show the resources of this sort in their completeness, the evidence is irresistible that in the instruments of trade and
commerce the immense region to which the figures relate has gathered
strength in these respects of surpassing use and significance.
THE NET GOLD BALANCE.

The prosperity of the country and the solidity of the general monetary condition are shown in no feature of the Treasury records more
plaiuly than in the net gold balance. Before September 1, 1898, the
highest point which this had ever attained was on April 3, 1888, when
it stood at $219,059,232. From June, 1878, for fifteen years, to June 6,
1893, it never fell so low as on that date, when the amount was
$89,589,364. The difierence between this amount and the reserve of
$100,000,000 was restored by the surrender by the banks of J^ew York
City to the Treasury of gold coin in exchange for United States notes,
so that the net gold balance was brought up to $103,863,290 by August
10, 1893. Another minimum mark was reached February 1, 1894, at
$65,438,378. A sale of bonds was made in January of that year for
which payments in February and March brought in $58,660,917.63, and
the net gold balance reached $107,446,802 on March 6. Eeaction set
in, however, and this balance fell to $54,975,607 by the end of July,
1894, and receipts from another sale of bonds in JN'Ovember and December of that year amounted to $58,719,710.20, and the balance became
$111,142,021 on December 4, 1894.
This gold restoration was effectual for only a very brief period, for on
February 11, 1895, the Treasury held only $41,340,181Mn net gold.
Again bonds were sold, for which payments were received from February to June, aggregating $65,428,056.89. Thus the net gold balance
was carried up to $107,571,230 on July 8, 1895. This relief again was
only temporary, and the balance fell to $44,563,493 on February 8, 1896.
Eesort was once more had to the device of selling bonds, which produced up to June, $111,355,612.07. During this process the net gold
attained a maximum of $128,713,709, but sank for a few days as low as
$89,669,975 on July 22, 1896.
Since that month the reserve of $100,000,000 has never been trenched
upon. With some fluctuations, the tendency has been steadily
upward. The products of the mines of our ISToTthwesterii States and
of the Klondike, with those of Australia, and the importations from




TREASURER.

11

Europe, have poured in large part in a steaay and precious stream
into the vaults of the Government.
In the month of July, 1894, no gold either in coin or certificates was
paid for customs duties at the New York office. The records given
elsewhere on page 163 of this report will show how small were the
receipts of this kind of money on this account from that date until the
beginning of'the calendar year 1898. Paper money was used in this
interval for these duties almost exclusively.. In March, 1898, payments of gold for customs in New York rose to 17.6 per cent, and in
subsequent months the increase has been steady and large. Thus
gold paynients there were in April, 52.7 per cent; in May, 73.5; in June,
67.7; in July, 59.9; in August, 63.8; in September, 78, and in October,
79.6 per cent.
The receipts from this source have been an important factor in adding
to the net gold balance of the Treasury.
Confidence in the credit of the nation and faith in the financial future
have added strength to the Treasury. Assurance that the gold standard will be maintained, has led banks and the people to turn the yellow
metal into the Treasury so far as practicable. They have preferred
paper currency to gold coin in current transactions, even wheu assistant treasurers of the United States in various cities have been
instructed to offer the latter in payment of warrants presented.
The tendency of the increase of gold in its ratio to paper currency in the Treasury still continues. The maximum attained was
$245,063,795.51, on October 7.
W A R REVENUE AND POPULAR LOAN.

Under the war-revenue act of June 13, 1898, the receipts from internal revenue began to increase, and were in successive months:

FINANCES.

ANTICIPATION OF' PAYMENTS.

r n e apprehension was natural that the drain upon the currency of the
country for these two purposes might create such a stringency as would
be harmful to general business. To prevent such a result, payment was
anticipated of the interest on the funded loan of 1907, due October 1.
Notice was given that the coupons amounting to $686,175 might be presented September 10, and checks for the interest on registered bonds,
amounting to $4,910,294, were sent out September 20.
Like notice was given that the interest due November 1 on the loans
of 1904 and 1925, as also on the popular loan of 1898, would be anticipated, the coupons on October 10, and the interest on registered bonds
by check on and after October 20. These amounts were:

By circular issued by the Secretary of the Treasury September 3,
1898, the option was offered to holders of the Pacific Eailroad bonds,
falling due January 1, 1899, to receive payment during that month of
princijial and interest in full, less a rebate of one-half of 1 per cent.
Although these bonds amounted to $14,004,560, only $918,000 were
presented for payment during September. The option was extended
for October on the same terms, and during that month such bonds were
paid to the sum of $273,000. November 1, of these bonds $12,813,560
remained to be paid. The option was again extended on identical
terms for the month of November.
DEPOSITS IN NATIONAL BANKS.

When it became obvious by the sudden close of hostilities with Spain
that the deniands upon the Treasury would not reach the magnitude
for which prudence required provision should be made, the Secretary
of the Treasury determined to deposit a large share of the proceeds
from the popular loan in national banks in all parts of the country.
By this process the funds, while at all times available for any possible
needs of the Government, remained in the channels of trade. These
deposits in successive months were:

STRINGENCY.

The result of these methods has proved in all respects satisfactory.
A t various times alarm was expressed in certain quarters that the
money market would be disastrously aff'ected by the immense pay


13

ments into the Treasury. The moral effect of the anticipation of interest and of the Pacific bonds gave confidence, and the Government
deposits in national banks afforded resources adequate to the country's need. The consequence was that the immense financial operations rendered necessary by the war with Spain were so conducted
that the money markets were in no degree disturbed at any time. The
rate of interest both on call and time loans has been held even below
a normal standard. The quotations for money in New York have ruled
at lower figures than have prevailed in most of the financial centers of
the Old World.
o

THE PUBLIC DEBT.

Although allotments of the new 3 per cent bonds began to be made
on June 14, bearing interest from that date, the bonds at the close of
the fiscal year were not yet ready for issue, and no part of the loan
was then in such shape as to be included, under the practice of the
Department, in the official statements of the public debt. For this
reason the published records of the debt relating^to that period exhibit
a technical rather than an actually existent state of affairs. Up to
November 1 these bonds had been issued to the amount of $179,399,180.
With the exception of the outstanding contracts for the new loan, the
only change which occurred during the year in the principal of the
interest-bearing debt arose from the conversion of $3,610 in refunding
certificates, with $2,340 of in ter est thereon, into 4 per cent bonds ofthe
loan of 1907, increasing the combined principal of the two loans affected
by the amount of the interest converted. The other changes in the part
of the debt which rests solely upon the public credit, exclusive of the
bouds issued to Pacific railroads, were caused by the redemption of
$84,200 of matured bonds, together with $350 of old demand notes and
$2,950 in fractional currency, and the deposit of $6,034,510, in excess of
the redemptions, for the retirement of national-bank notes.
Of the Pacific railroad bonds, $29,850,952 were paid during the year,
leaving a balance of $14,133,560 of this loan outstanding, of which
$129,000 was past due and payable on presentation, and $14,004,560
will mature on January 1, 1899.
In the Appendix will be found a table which shows in detail the
changes which have here been summarized. The subjoined statement
exhibits the outstanding principal in a somewhat more condensed

REFUNDING CERTIFICATES.

Of the $40,012,750 refunding certificates issued under the act of February 26,1879, only $41,520 remained outstanding at the close of the
fiscal year. By law they can only be refunded into 4 per cent bonds,
and as the smallest denomination of those bonds is for $50, three certificates with accrued interest must be secured to permit the transaction.
As their volume diminishes the difficulty increases of gathering them.
If ever compulsion were necessary to induce the acceptance of 4 per
cent bonds of the United States, no such need now exists.
The convenience of holders and of the Treasury will be promoted by
an enactment providing for the payment on demand with accrued
interest of the small remnant of these certificates. This subject is
presented to you for an urgent recommendation to Congress for action.

TREASURER.

The estimated increase in the stock of gold is no less than
$165,244,238, a change without precedent in the history ofthe country.
The nearest approach to this rate of accumulation is found in the year
ending June 30, 1881, when the additions to the stock of gold in the
country amounted to $126,000,000. In both instances is the result
l^lainly traced to important events in legislative history; at the earlier
period to the resumption of specie payments, and now to the reestablishment of faith in the permanence of the gold standard.
As there is no authority of law for the further acquisition of silver,
save the insignificant amounts contained in the gold bullion deposited
in "the mints, the changes in the stock of this metal are due entirely to
the manipulations of the material already on hand. Aside from the
gold, therefore, no important change is going on in the composition or
volume of the circulating medium, with the exception of the rapid
growth in the bank-note circulation which has marked the appearance
of the war loan on the market. During the fiscal year there were canceled and retired $13,660,000 in Treasury notes, which had been
redeemed in silver dollars. Further redemptions up to November 1
reduced the volume of these notes to $97,833,280.
On the assumption ofthe retirement ofthe certificates and Treasury
notes, the remaining or effective stock would be found to have been
composed and distributed as indicated below:

THE COINAGE.

While the recent heavy importations of gold, mostly in the form of
bullion, have largely increased the relative amount of uncoined gold in
the Treasury, the holdings of coin have been sufficient to meet all
demands, and there has been no inconvenience in consequence of the
change. The capacity of the inints, nnless they happen to be temporarily overtaxed by other coinages, is at all times ample for the handling
of whatever gold bullion may be brought to them.
The gradual expansion of the circulation of fractional silver coin,
which has extended, with some interruptions, through a series of years,
and which, with an increasing population, must be expected to continue, has at length reduced the average holdings of the Treasury to a
point where it becomes necessary to consider the provision of fresh supplies. An outline of the late statistics relating to this class of the
currency may be found significant, and in this view the amount and distribution of the silver coins of denominations less than one dollar are
given, as estimated for the end of September in each year, beginning
with 1884:

REPORT ON THE FINANCES.

These figures, while showing the effect of temporary derangements of
business in the return of the silver coins to the Treasury, indicate
plainly the general tendency in their distribution. Furthermore, when
it is considered that the holdings of the Treasury must be apportioned
among ten offices, besides the mints, in the shares adapted to meet
most readily the public demands, it will be understood that the existing
supply can be but little above the minimum required for convenient
handling.
The amounts of the abraded gold and silver coins transferred during
the year to the mints for recoinage are exhibited in the annexed table,
which shows also the amount of the ascertained depreciation from
wear:

SPURIOUS AND FRAUDULENT ISSUES.

The improvement noted last year in the condition of the currency
with respect to the number of spurious pieces of the higher denominations encountered has continued. As against a total cancellation of
$8,822.45 in subsidiary coins and paper currency of this character in
the preceding twelve months, the records for the past year show
$8,050.20. On the other hand, an increase in the quantity of bad copper and nickel coins, also beginning to be apparent last year, has developed into proportions altogether without parallel in recent experience.
The aggregate number of such coins detected at the offices of the
Treasury during this year were no less than 69,625, as against 15,999
in the preceding year, and 10,250 in the year next before. New York,
Boston, and Philadelphia continue to be the chief fields of the operators.

The honds in the sinking fund of the Union Pacific Eailroad at the
beginning of the fiscal year, of the face value of $13,645,250, were delivered, by direction of the Secretary of the Treasury, to the purchasers of

at the opening of the year in the fund of the Central Pacific, $32,000,
issued to Sioux Oity and Pacific, fell due on January 1,1898, and were
paid by the United States, while $163,000 of those issued to the Central
Branch of the Union Pacific were sold under the Secretary's circular
of December 15, 1896. These operations have reduced the holdings of
bonds on account of the. Pacific railroad sinking funds to $242,000, of

and the Chickasaw national fund, but afterwards assumed, on default
of payment, by the United States, were, on the 24th of May last, by
direction of the Secretary of the Treasury, forwarded to an agent of
the Department, by whom they were subsequently delivered, upon
compliance with the terms of the settlement, to tbe authorities of the
State. There now remain in the custody of the office $160,000 of the
6 per cent bonds of Arkansas due January 1,1900, upon which interest
has been paid to July 1, 1898.

REDEMPTION OF NATIONAL-BANK NOTES.

The presentations of national-bank notes for redemption amounted
for the year to $97,112,000, as compared with $113,574,000 for the year
preceding. With the increase of force provided for by Congress it has
been possible to keep the work of counting and assorting from falling
in arrears, and it has not been necessary, as was formerly the case, to
call upon the general force of the office or upon the Department for
assistance.
The total expenses for the year, including $34,337.93 paid as charges
for transportation, were $125,924.35, an increase of $862.62 over the
year before. The annual assessment for the expenses of redemption,
which has just been made, is at the rate of $1.29646 for each $1,000 of
notes redeemed.
Deposits aggregating $22,760,920.50 were made during the year for
the retirement bf national-bank notes, the largest amount received for
that purpose in any year since 1889. Of this total $18,800,530 was
deposited for the reduction of the circulation of banks continuing in
business. These unusual operations were due chiefly to the maturity
of a large block of Pacific railroad bonds, of which many were held to
secure circulating notes. There was in consequence a considerable
contraction of the bank note circulation, but this was later counteracted. Since the appearance of the new 3 per cent bonds on the
market, at quotations which make them unusually attractive as a basis
for the issue of bank notes, the volume of this circulation has been
expanding at a rate without precedent in recent years. This increase
of material, which will in due. time require renovation or withdrawal,
will not fail to add to the work of the branch of this office engaged in
the redemption of bank notes.
WORK OF THE TREASURER'S OFFICE.

The transactions of the Treasurer's Office are always varied and on a
large scale. Since the outbreak of the war with Spain they have been
greatly extended and their magnitude incf easjed.
The extension has related to the change of denominations of currency from large to small, multiplying the number of pieces; to the
vastly greater receipts, in the case of the popular loan in small sums,*
to the important payments on account ofthe Army and Navy, many in
number and often large in amount; to the growth in the list of registered bondholders to'whom interest is to be paid, from 34,890 to 74,870;



20

REPORT ON THE FINANCES.

to the additions tofchecurrency and the deposits of the national banks,
involving the care of their securities and the redemption of many more
worn notes. The accounting in all these cases and the verification of
vouchers add in very large degree to the labor essential -to accuracy
and safety.
The work of the office has been kept fairly in hand, notwithstanding
the abnormal pressure, by extending the hours of labor to cover in
several divisions nearly every night to very late hours and by the aid
of clerks on a temporary roll.
Whatever may be tolerable elsewhere, transactions and records in the
Treasurer's OfficiB can not be permitted to fall in arrears without injustice to individuals and peril to the Government. As a matter of public
security and with proper regard to the service of the Treasury, an addition of not less than ten clerks is imperatively called for, as is set forth
