BKVIV1NQ STATU BANKS OPPOSED.
William Hsckelt, prsai lent of the
Batton National lauk of E ntou, dis
cussed "Sluto banks and uu improved
national banking HYstein compared.''
1I gave an interesting description of
tba operations of the state bank' mid
the innumerable OOOvaniinOM and p:.-i
itiva losses to whicli they snbjeotsd
tho public. He contrasted this state
Of things with the solidity or the na
tional banks ond said: "We ma)
well look with dread upon the efforts
now biiug made to destroy the nation
al bsnking system and to deprive the
country ol tuo absolute safety nnd se
curity afforded by its circulation.''
Mr. Etaokett stid:
Wc need a currency eiatic in character,
and which will expand and contract as the
necessities of the country may demand,
and tiiese bnnkl are well adapted for this
purpose, i.s they would naturally oxpand
or contract their circulation, as the de
mands ol their clientage may require.
That tbit is true is borne out by the fact
that from March to October, 1893, the cir
oulatlon Increased thirty.tbree millions,
artd, if more profit could have been shown,
tii increase would have been much larger.
, inks do not issue circulation unless at a
uroOt and we would utiiriu that the ntios-
cton cf a sufficient circulating medium
would be settled lor good by the enact
ment Ol legislation which would furnish
r! e banks with circulation to the par or

Mr, W. H. Peck, csshier ef tin-
Tbird X itional bank, this city, spoke
felicitously on the subject of "Banking
Plonsantries." H. sai I inpsrt:
When asked to address you today, the
first thought wai what particular part
of banking shall I talk about.' Shall 1 be
as to the desirability of a uniform prac
tice among ban k in the same city in re
gard to overdrafts, those bugbears to us
tul f Or or nuiiorniity in rules for inter
rst deposits! Or tho advisability tt
changing tbe rates of interest paid! Or
ball it be views ns to the value of com
mercial paper compared with bouds as
quick assets! But my later thought has
been, thul as each of tho S crouton bank
ers bus his own jirt theories on these snb
jscts, 1 better not ruthlessly disturo the
pencotliatat the present timo so beaatt
fully ii Vttlls among us. And so my mi-tu
has tarnsd to the o.td things that have oc
carrud in this business of banking. Loan
Itig money is seri .us busiuess. Getting it
back iiolten still more serious. Hat If we
recognixc them as they occur, wa will find
in our own experience, and in the expert
enco of others, that this serious'iess is oc-
casionally relieved by humorous features.
It in related of a banker iu the north
west that on reading the papers ho became
alarmed at the itiauy failures reportod,
and so Concluded not to loan any more
money, and to oil In what he had out,
not seeming to realise that such a course
would only rnsko the hard times worse.
Acting on this plan, it was not long be
fore his depositors were expressing pity
i hat he was so hard up, and som said that
if he was in that .shape th-y wanted their
money, h id soon he fou-ul that as a mat
ter of self-preservation ho better stop that
policy. In tbe happy time coming it is to
be hoped that bank era, borrowers and do
poaltprs will leava that their interest
are muinal, and when a bank and its cus
tomers lo.iru Unit, th wellmanage i bank
w:li have nothing to fear from the nn
easiness of panicky times, and thou It will
never be necessary for any one to do iih a
western o.uiKor am, wao last summer
found bis cash was all paid out, and that
he had no quick a-ihets, although Ids loans
were ou good notes, ;iud ko he had to put
up the shutters, and he tacked up tins
"Thn, bank owes the public K7.030.
The public owes this bauk 887,000.
When the publie pays this huuk will pay.
The bunk is not busted. It It the public
that is busted."

fuiirks wore inoit happily received in

der the half-holiday law created con
siderable disenssion. It was the. gen
eral opinion of the meeting that tho
law Is crude and misutivlcntood, and
while lh maturity on Monday applies
particularly to banks observing the
half-holiday, thero seemsd to be uh un
certainty in the case of banks which
do not oha -r.ve the half-holiday.
After tli discussion, tho sens) of the
meeting was voted m favor of olojiug
Saturday at noon,pri:icipally because
it seemed the best :.i-thod of protection
tinder the present iuw.
A;i adjournment was made at, 15
o'clook to bannuot nt the Westminster
ut 7 o'clock.
It wat nsarly 8 o'clock when tijo
banqueters, who were received in tho
vVestminstM parlors on the second
fljor, descended to the dining room,
which witu a h ippy bleu (lag of rose
and flsgs, in honor of Flag DtyaaJ
tho occasion, bad been transformed in
to a veritable bower of beauty.
While over two hours were snent in
ilUcuiting the excellent menu, replete
and Inexhaustible in its supply f deli
cacies, Bauer's orchestra, stationed in
the reading mom adjoining, ditoourted
iweet music. The arrangement, ser
vice and general excellence of tin re
past reflect! much credit upon C. M,
Truman, proprietor of the hotel.
W. T. Smith, the tOSltmatter, called
the assemblage to order in a brief
but happily selected ipteob, He said
By virtue of tb honorablo position thnt
bus boon assigned me, 1 arise to reiterate
and emphasize the hearty Welcome we ull
extend and to tlmnk you for ymir visit to
our city and especially lor your presence
here tonight. It seems eminently proper
that after tho arduous duties of
the day iu the interest, and
promotion of Bound principles of banking
you should lay aside your labors and de
vote tho evening to the ret end diversion
of banqueting. We fully realise that the
labors and .luti 's of active business are in
a measure to provide mentis ior the en
joyment of the pleasures and amenities of
social life, nnd if wt can In nuy degree
make this evening a fulfilment ofthis de
stre, wo shall feel that wo have accom
plished our object.
rVe who have lived here for many yean
and watched the growth and progress of
our city, may be pardonod for feeling a
reasonable pride In, and deep attachment
to it. A bountiful providence placed here
a generous provision for prosperity and
:u active and enterprising people have
nsed these elements successfully, and I be
lievo I am not assuming too much
in saving that among all the
flourishing cilies of our glorious
commonwealth we may claim to bo tba
peer of any in our class. Wo sincerely
hope that tbisvislt may so impress yen that
yon will come auiiiu Individually and col
lectively uud you may always bo assured
ot a hearty welcome. Aud now we will
proceed to tho real feast of the evening
and demonstrate that ihe vocabulary of
the banker is not confined to the mono
syllable phrases of "ye" una "no."

because of "honor to whom honor is

dreds of years ago which have not been

of time, by which modern bankers can
draw a good lesson fiom the Nile.
There is plenty of time. Another
point of ditr.'reuce in favor of the Xile
I in the matter of wind, which boars

a man arrives in town with plenty

Rev. Ciarles 13 Robinson, D. D,
who responded to tbe"Banki of the Jor

for the s.ilt woman, he would remark
that it bad been hi Lot to fiud her.
He said that, ultiiouijti conversation

he would talk bri-fly without the ster

il" drew an interesting idea of the
different) in the facilities nnd custom
of city bankors standing by on another
iu times of trouble and panic, and the
helplessness of the coutry banker. Yon
cannot separate your prospsrlty aj a na
tion from thesoundossssof your banks.
Hi endeavored to impress the bankers
Individually "and generally upon Ins
importance of interesting themselves
in the QaanoUl legislation in progress.
There id too much attention to matters
solely witniii tne four walls of a Oatik
ing business, While politicians aud
demagogues are making mistakes

huve broken in upon the happier strain
of talk, but the problems should bu
considered as how lo best fit us to raoet
tbe legislation In progress. Then are
too m my pet schemes, whilo thero
should be a iixel principle.
Attorney W. W. Watson was intro
duced as one who bus but reoetftlf
associated himself with Soranton, but
who Iisb been prominent in identify
ing hiui-olf with the advance of tii
city. On the toast ''Principal and In
terest" he considered Interest as mur
der it is Bbomiuable. vd should
abolish interest or establish a 4 per
cent. Uw. The only reason for charg
ing (I per cent is because it is easy to
calculate. Ou the plea that thero ure
no cures for liars because they are in
curable, he edvocnted "principal." Ii
is a good thing inside the bank.

sponse to the toast of "Profb an 1 Loss,"
said iu th- piyioe; to the preachers by
baokeiS there is an equivalent In th i
praying by the preachers for the bank

("otusuu" morsel for the Nlleorooo-
