The Economic Side of the Workhouse Inquiry.

Quite clear from the evidence already received by the Commission of Enquiry that the report des Lancet upon the Farnham Workhouse was undertoned. It is rare to meet, even in fiction, with anything quite so horrible as the little story of the sick pauper woman, roasted to death from sheer supine neglect. … wretched race of „masters“ selected to keep down masterful beggars.

The main source and reason of all the barbarities now exciting so much just indignation has been the desire to save expense, to keep the rates as far as possible „down“. Das management der workhouses is mean, aber zugleich viel waste, peculation etc. Local boards are not good managers of money, as we all know from the experience of vestries and municipalities, and local boards working through contracts are peculiarly liable to imposition and jobbery. Witnesses seem to doubt whether (in dem Farnham case) supplies paid for ever arrived. At all events it is quite clear the workhouse did not get the full benefit of its position as a great wholesale buyer.

The Bank of England (Communicated)

A banknote is a promise to pay, a cheque is an order to pay, no analogy between them. A banknote is a transferable promise on the part of a bank to pay to bearer, on demand, a certain amount of coined gold; it circulates side by side with gold in endless succession; it liquidates debts like coin; and men in business are practically bound to accept it when in circulation. A cheque is an order to a banker to pay over a specified sum of money; it requires endorsement on being paid, nor is any one practically bound to accept it when offered to him in payment of a debt etc[.] An order to pay Notes is not the Notes themselves.

(Auditors)

Durch seine clause 30 haben die shareholders control through the auditors und leztre responsibility they had not before. It is a striking fact that the auditors have never discovered, or at any rate disclosed, any one of the numerous cases of forgery of stock, false returns to the Board of Trade, payment of unearned dividends, charging of revenue expenses to capital, or any other of the various forms of „cooking“ accounts by which shareholders have been lured to ruin by their directors.
