And the circulation herein authorized shall, within three years if required, be withdrawn pro rata from banks organized in States having a circulation exceeding that provided for by the act entitled "An act to amend an act entitled 'An act to provide for a national currency secured by pledge of United States bonds, and to proride for the circulation and redemption thereof;' approved March 3, 1865.” To ascertain which, the Comptroller of the Cur. rency shall, under the direction of the Secretary of the Treasury, make a statement showing the amount of circulation to be retired by each of such banks ; and shall, when circulation is required, make a requisition for such amount upon such bank, commencing with banks in States having the largest excess of circulation, and reducing only the circulation of those having the greatest proportion in excess, leaving undisturbed those haring a smaller proportion until those in greater excess have been reduced to the same grade ; and continuing thus to make the reduction in such States having an excess until the circulation of such bank shall, as nearly as possible, be equalized among the States and Territories according to the appraised value of all property, real and personal, within such States and Territories ; the same to be ascertained by the certified statements of the governors of such States and Territories made biennially to the Secretary of the Treasury: Provided, That this act shall not apply to $150,000,000 of said circulation, which shall be distributed according to representation in Congress. And upon failure of such bank to return the amount so required within one year aforesaid, it shall be the duty of the Comptroller of the Currency to sell at public auction, haring given twenty days' notice in a newspaper printed in Washington city and New York city, an amount of bonds deposited by said bank, as security for its circulation, equal to the circulation to be withdraron from such bank, and with the proceeds to redeem so many of the notes of such bank as they come into the treasury as will equal the amount required from it: Provided, That the circulation herein authorized shall be issued only as circulation is withdrawn, so that the aggregate of circulation shall not at any time exceed $300,000,000.” The question was put, Will the House agree thereto?
