The Racine journal-t1mes sunday bulletin february 3, 1935 7ive letter by col. Recently found pictures england9 s Banks to pupils John d. Roberts an interesting account of an election in London and a visit to the rank of England wore contained in a letter which colonel John g. Mcmynn wrote to students attending the High school Back in 1839. Colonel Mcmynn was spending a year abroad and his letters to the students were highlights in that Day. Two copies of these old letters recently came to Light. Excerpts from the second one follow a London feb. 26, 1839 a omy dear pupils a Oas my stay in London is drawing to a close i will devote an hour to you before starting for the continent. A three weeks in London will of course leave Manv impressions on one to mind and it would require twice three weeks to describe All i have seen during the past three. I will Only allude to a few objects of interest now hoping at some future time to i a you a More particular account with the Tongue than i can now give you with the Lien. Describes election. A yesterday there was an election for a member of the Houe of commons in one of the districts of London. The manner of conducting an election Here is different from the method in our own country so that a description might interest you. Day i before yesterday there was a Large meeting held in one of the Parks. This was the preliminary meeting the sheriff read the notice of election and then a gentleman Rose and after ome remarks nominated colonel Romiley. The nomination was seconded in a very creditable manner. Another gentleman then arose and after stating his views nominal d Edwin James this nomination was also seconded. A othe respective candidates then expressed their views and were questioned very fully by a the audience and they answered these questions very frankly.

The sheriff then put the question and requested those who preferred colonel Romiley to raise their hands. The friends of or. James then were requested to show hands. A othe officers announced the result. The result was disputed by the opposition and a poll was demanded. This poll which was the real election came off yesterday. Hank employed 1.000. A Otile ballot is not in use in this country and therefore when a Man conies up to vote he gives his name his residence and the name of his candidate. Every Many to name is written and he votes openly. The result was that or. James was elected by two to one. All do not vote Oak those who pay a rent of to pounds a year so that there Are not As Many voters in proportion to the population As with us As this is the usual manner of conducting an election i have written these details. A Oday before yesterday visited the Bank of England. As it is open during the Day anyone can visit it who chooses to do so. But an Ordinary visitor will be allowed to see Only the outside of the business. By the kindness of the american ambassador i was furnished with a note of introduction which secured admission to the otherwise private departments of the ins Titu j Tion. A othe Bank at present covers a Large bid or Square. It is constructed of Stone and the Walls Are j Strong. It was not All built at one time but it has grown As necessity required additions to be made now after entering the outer Gate it has the appearance of a collection of buildings huddled without much regard to order. Here is done the most of tile important financial business of England. There Are about 1,000 persons employed 4in the Arious departments and the arrangements Are so perfect that the balance Sheet which is. Prepared every Day proves to a Penny. Money is weighed. A othe first room i Xis ted. Under direction of the doorkeeper was the place where All sovereigns received into the Bank Are weighed. This is done by machinery. So perfect is this machinery that if a Coin is full weight it is thrown by the machine into the Box for Good j coins but if there is a deficiency in the weight. A in to the fiftieth part of a Grain it is thrown into another Box. A Oak Coin received Here is thus tried and the bad Coin is Cut so As to he useless and sent Back to the banker from whom it was received who sends Good sovereigns to replace the bad and sends the bail to the mint. The loss is very Small there is not More than one in a Hundred of these bad coins in circulation and the ultimate loss on those of Short weight does not average More than 2 per cent. A othere were about 20 machines for weighing in the room we visited All driven by steam and each of these machines can weigh 2,000 coins in an hour. A next we went into the room where the banknotes Are printed. All notes Are printed on paper manufactured expressly for the Bank and it is of a Peculiar make and texture and the impression is Beautiful and uniform. The paper after it is brought Back to the i Bank. Consequently there is an apartment appropriated to the business of cancelling and classifying j the notes that come Back to the Bank. The notes returned have the cashier s name torn off Che amount in figures Cut out and Are classified according to denominations. No note for less than five pounds is issued. A these old notes Are carefully put away and Are kept for to it ears arid one month. The object of keeping them so Long and of arranging them so carefully is to refer to them in Law cases. When a notes passes from a to b some record of the transaction May a and often is kept on the Back of the note and thus the note itself May become important Legal evidence. I was informed that at least 50 a a Day Are made at this department for the purpose of finding old Bank notes. A Oso Well is it arranged that any one of 70,000,000 different notes May be found in five minutes. There i saw one old Bank note for i ode oho pounds or $5,000,000 roaming the world by Short wave by Thara chair traveler time table of Fri Sci pal foreign stations frequency City station hours Ltd.
