WA-iuxf. July Sherman has laid before the Senate a letter from the Comptroller of the Currency in re- gard to the bill affecting Xationj.1 bauk circulation recently reported to the Senate. The Comptroller says: Thoro were, on the 17th of May last, ,-5.438 nonal banking associations in operation in tho United States, having a total capital of These associa- tions had a total circulation of 940, secured by United States bonds amounting to at their face value. The circulation stated does not include in of retire- ment and represented by an equal atuount of lawful money on deposit in tho treasury of the United States. It also appears that the minimum amount of bonds required to be deposited by these banks under existing law upon which they would be en- titled to maintain a circulation of It would therefore be possible for these banks to withdraw bonds to the amount of and surrender of their circulating notes under existing law. The bonds on deposit in excess of legal requirements are, as a rule, the property of the oldwr banks located in the Eastern and Middle States where current rates of interest are relatively low. Banks recently organized have, as a rule, the minimum deposit of bonds and this is in a sreneral sense trm- of all banks located in States and Territories where interest rates high. The first sec- tion of the bill reported from the Com- mittee on Finance on the loth inst with amendments provides that National banking associations may be organised and operated with a nominal deposit of bonds to .secure circulation. This pro- vision standing alonu would be favora- bly received by the banks It would, however, tend to a contraction of tho bank note circulation unless accom- panied bv the second section, which en- titles said associations to receive circu- lating notes equal In amount to the par value of the bonds pledged for their re- dorantion. Ths operation of tbe bill would" salutary. It would enable now banks to organize without forcing them to ap- pear in the bond market in competition with the Secretary of the Treasury, u his wo u Id result in an advantage to both the Government and the banks. Many banks located in the newer Statei, where the interest rates are high, would no doubt reduce the present amount of the bonds now held to secure their oir- culation, and thi would result in benefit to the banks and to the people whom they servo, as it would increase locally the amount of available for loans by putting in circulation the sums now locked up in bond premiums. In conclusion ime Comptroller says Congress seems to have determined that the turther issue of bank notes is not desirable, and in that event the bur- den of maintaining circulation, he should ba removed from these associations so that they may more sat- isfactorily serve the people as banks of discount and deposit, in which sphere they have never boon adversely criti- cised by anyjportion of the people.

The of the UtaMter The llurlcd Under Falling SAVA.VVAII, Ga., July M. J. Bui- lard's three-story brick boarding house, No. 205 Congress was blown up early Thursday morning. Three people were killed and six injured. There were twelve people in the house. Most of t e occupants were asleep and wero hurled from their beds and either buried under the falling debris or thrown on top of it. The namfs of t.bo killed art- Mrs. W. J. Bullard, James Lockly and Gus Robio. The names of the wounded are: John Roberts, fractured ankle and concussion of tho brain; L. J. Tate, con- tusion of face and chest; Moldon Key- wood, colored, shoulder broken; J. A. Rimes, Edward S. Everett and Mrs. Ed- ward S Everett, bruised; Sam King, badly injured about the body. George Maxwell, colored, has been cr- ested on suspicion. He had been em- ployed in the house, but had been dis- charged on Saturday night, when be swore that he would be revenged. Workmen were busy all day removing the debris, No signs of powder or dyn- amite have discovered. Mr. Billiard, who was sleeping with bis wife, had a marvelous escape and re- ceived but a few slighi bruises Mrs. Bullard was dead when taken out. She was fearfully crushed. The cause of tbe explosion is a mystery. There arft many rutnors of an ugly nature, but no- body will take the responsibility of mak- ing a direct statement. One man insin- uated that there had been a row in the bouso towards the end of a jollification in which the inmates bad been indulg- ing. Lamps wero used instead of gas and it is said that there was no meter in the house, though it was supplied with gas pipes throughout Most people therefore are una-lr> to see how tho ox- plosion could have bi-cn caused by gas. The falling building was a three-story tonnment. built in the French flat style and faced on tho south, the two top floors being used as sleeping apart- ments. The explosion blew the entire building to the northward, some of the furniture being blown across St. Julian street into spliatcrs, while the flying bricks went as far as Bay street, the en- tire structure collapsing outward on Con- gress street. th ttir t KxtrH .if u ol 'Iliitt for ixuKiKMi.
