FOWLIR'S BANKING BILL.
While Congress Is tnlMuK to the
galleries In preparation for the polit
ical campaign next (all, there ap
pears to bo genornl consent that defi
nite action must be taken to straight
en out the banking laws, which wcro
found so pitiably weak during the re
tent banking panic.
The two principal measures before
Congress arc the Aldrlch hill of tho
Senate, which makes no dnmtlc
thango from the present national
banking system but provides for an
emergency currency based on tho
usual banking assets, and the Fowler
bill, which Is the House measure for
colvlng the financial problems of the
hour. This Is a very radical depart
ure from the present arrangement
and therefore Is credited with haying
small prospect of being adopted,
though the final bill may bo n "com
bination of both.
Chairman Fowler's plan as ex
pressed In his bill reported favorably
b the House Committee on Flnnnrc,

tific monetary system founded upon
The bill provides first that within
twenty-four hours nfter the passage
of tho act the Comptroller of Cur
rency shall designate central cities In
the country as will practically bring
every banking association of the
United States within twenty-fours of
n bank-note redemption agency. Tho
district with the 2-lhour radius Is
l.nown as a redemption district.
All banking associations or a 10
demptlon district shnll organize Into
nn association to bo known ns "Tho
(insert number) Hank-Note Redemp
tion District." This association hus
a board of managers of seven mem
bers; the chairman elected by the
Hoard is to act as and havo tho au
thority of a Deputy Comptroller of
Currency, and rccelvo a salary or
JO, 000. a eur.
When the organization of tho "re
demption districts" Is complete nuy
national bank "may" retire Its cur
rency secured by United States bonds,
and Issue In Its placo "national bank
guaranteed credit notes" equal to Its
paid-up capital. Tho bank must pro
vide for the redemption of these
notes in gold coin and deposit In
gold coin or Its equivalent with tho
Treasuror of the United States nn
amount of money equal to tlvo per
cent, of Its average deposits during
the preceding year, and a further
deposit of five per cent, of the
amount of tho "national bank guar
anteed credit notes" Issued.
As soon ns all the moneys deposit
ed by the national banks with the
Treasurer of the United States shell
umount to 125,000,000. all United
States bonds now held by the Treas
urer to secure Government deposits
shall be returned to the respective
