How the thing can be done at all is a mystery; how such a man can serve a really useful economic purpose by this process is unfathomable. In gold convertibility was officially restored, but lack of strict enforcement, including severe limitations placed on the exchange of bank notes and settlement of clearings between competing banks, caused the system to remain in a state of de facto inconvertibility. Those holding the inside money of a local bank, but wishing to do business in distant towns, must either redeem some of their holdings for gold and suffer the inconvenience of transporting coinor suffer a loss in the value of their notes by taking them where they are accepted only at a discount, if at all. There are limitations to the powers of governments and of peoples that inhere in the constitution of things, and that neither despotisms nor democracies can overcome.

      Support for the new bank, at first unimpressive, improved when one of the private banks decided to consolidate with it. These payments may sometimes result in the redeposit of coin in the same vault from which it was withdrawn. With a new introduction by W. A History of the Carpenters Company.
