Tl.o Comptroller of tlio Currency desires
to secure new designs for thu backs of
national bank notes of the new scries.
Tho present designs aro In his opinion in
every way objectionable. It is claimed that
a change is necessary to improvo their
artistic appearance, to increase tlio dilll
cultv of counterfeiting and to secure nn
acceptable and distinct note. Mr. Cannon
does not advocato any uiinecosary
changes and has not fully indor.-ed tlio
proposition urged by many bankers, of
ficials and man v others, that tlio faces of
the notes should also bo changed and that
pictures of tlio prominent public build
ings, national monuments, statues, etc.,
should take the place of tho vignettes and
portraits now in uso. Secretary Manning
is understood to dislike tho nppcaranco of
tho notes nnd securities of recent issue,
and to desiro extensive changes in tlio de
signs and tlio lettering of tlio silver certifi
cates as well us tho national bank notes.
