In 1869, and down to a comparatively recent date, the dominant Idea has been to re quire a national bank to buy govern ment bonds ns a condition pre.-edeut to obtaining currency. The government itself Is recognizing as far as It can the changed condition of affairs. 1 here is no longer any necessity at all for bonds a basis of currency.

The banks suspend ed specie payment, hut ware per fectly solvent. The laws or force then permitted a three for one Isaue. For example, in 1860. Georgia had 29 banks of Issue, with a capital In rauud numbers of $17.000,000. This gave a possible circulation of $51,000,- 000. or ssl per capita for our then 1 000.000 people. The full Issue was never made, because no! needed. Ihe system was adapted to the wants of an agricultural people: the money flowed i freely into the channels of trade during | autumn and winter, receded during the i dull season, but was ever at command.

"In 1897, Georgia had an t aotual per capita as follows: Banking capital. $1.56; deposits. $3.21: currency. $0.43; total. $5.20. Difference against 1897. $23.38.

"Judge Oree.Vs sensational record be gan when he leaned order# recently for all negroes on the hill to get married, j There were hundred* of men and wo men living together n# man and wtfe, and aurh a thing ns a marriage befora was unknown. One moinlng. however. Green pasted a little notice which said that every negro in the dlatrlrt would have to marry. He to>d all the men to bring their women to court within for ty-eight hours, and he gave notice, too, that punishment would come to all who refused. At first the negroes were paralyz'd 4>y the new order of thing*, and they allowed signs of flight, but Oreeu took his Winchester and a pair of aix-ahootera, and went among the moha, and told them that he was ruler there. With him was a constable simi larly aimed. When the negroes looked upon the arms they were frightened, and twenty-four couples were married the first day, That night a pine coffin was plai t'd at Judge Green's door. On the coffin «vaa»a note telling Judge Green that he had to quit the country or be killed. The note was written In red ink, and was signed hy ‘The com- | i mltte*.’ To show how he regarded the ; threat Green kindled a fire with the j coffin, and told his constable to go out ' and arrest ‘the commltte.’ The con | stable found one member who squealed | 1 and It was easy work arresting the gang. At court that morning Green 1 said, he would send every man up for (life, but they began to beg and plead, and told how much they loved and honored and respected the court " T want you to love and honor and respect this court,’ said Judge Green, •but 1 don’t want you to joke with it. See? Now. you can go, but the next time one of you happen In i’ll kill you. | Before you go from here you've got to ! marry. Now call in your women.' and 1 In fifteen ralntites four members of the death committee had been married. Thd negroes were stunned by the starter. The marriage work has continued, and Judge Green says he has married more than 500 couples up to date. " ’This marrying business Is respon sible for the change at the Hill,’ said Judge Green to the Constitution corre spondent last night, and T understand it is being adopted in other sections of the state, and especially in the lower country, where so many negroes live, t found by experience that a negro would j fight sooner for his ‘woman’ than for amendments, the hope of this state and the southern 6tates generally for a re turn of real ami lasting prosperity rests wholly under a kind Providence in the restoration to state hanks of the right guaranteed by tbe constitu tion of being banks of issue—the notes being redeemable in the money of the constitution. Our young men ought to feel the deepest interest in this question. Compared with the young men of today are hampered financially on every hand.
