Calling in Certificates.
The determination to call in
the clearing house certificates
and resume specie payment has
taken on very definite shape,
says the Atlanta Journal.
Chicago has already destroyed
twenty-five thousand dollars
worth of the certificates which
have been paid back into the
banks, and this will be continued
as fast as they find their way
bad- to the banks.
Chicago is not alone in her
to follow- this course.
The bank officials of that city
have sent out one thousand let-
to banks in the south and
west, asking their opinion of
calling in the certificates.

these have promptly expressed
their willingness to resume pay-
in currency, and only two

This cannot be restored
absolutely and completely until
the certificates have been called
in and the banks once more re-
specie payment
A significant feature of this
of opinion taken by
the Chicago banks is the fact
that the banks of the south and
west, where the scarcity of
money has been most deeply felt,
are as as those of any
other section of the country in
their consent to the resumption
of currency payments.
Facts like these cannot be dis-
counted. It is a substantial and
convincing evidence that the
worst of the financial stringency
is over and that business will
resume its normal sway as soon
as the people themselves make
up their minds completely that
there is nothing more to fear-
