Danger of Centralized Control
RESTRICTIONS ON BANKS
Voting Rights Limited in Cases
of Joint Stock Ownership?
Other Changes Made.
Washington, Jan. I The National Mon?
etary Commission tO-dey virtually agreed
upon n provision which, it is believed, will
prevent I he exercise of undue Influence on
the affairs of the propos--.) National Re
serve Association by any Individual, "or
poration ?*r section Of the country. This
practically completed ths work of that
The great fear from the neginnlng of the
commission's labors has been that the ft??..
OOMM reserve which it Is proposed t "> e?
tabllsh would be controlled l?y some finan?
cial centre. It war, at first believed that
i-inger had been SV< rted bv the pro?
hibition of the transfer of stock and other
restriction-, l-ut lately fliege w.i* the an
prehension thSt holding companies or Tiber
liions, o? even individuals, migli?
gain an undesirable ascendancy through
the purchase of stock in banks comprising
Representatives \'Iceland nnd Weeks and
?resmtative !i..n\nge especially have
pressed this point, and *t to-day's meeting
presented ?i proposition which proved ac
Ceptsble. it would restrict the voting
of banks in csaes In which indi?
viduals ?>r corporations own stock In more
than one of them. The effect of thi? pro
vision would tie to limit or prevent vnlinm
by l.arks owned or partly owned by one
Stockholder or one set of stockholders. It
is in line with the effort of the commis?
sion to avoid the possibility of centralizing
, wer to frame tlit- policy of the r?
serve association. It Is also exp-SCted t?>
m^et the erltlclsin that the association
? he controlled hy such nn important
centre as New York City.
Fifteen Reserve Districts.
The division of the United BtStes into fif?
teen branch reserve association districts.
was mads to prevent centralization.
These districts ?ill b?* distributed as fol
One In the New England stair.-; two
Kasten states of New fork. New
. Pennsylvania nad Delaware; four
in the ?Southern states, extending from
?Maryland to Texas; four In the Middle
Western states, and (our in the ?";?r West?
ern and Pacific Coast slate--, west of ihe
Missouri River and north o? T? xas. Tue
? of this distribution will be to give
the Southern und Western and Pacific
stales a proportion of control far in excess
< f t.v -:' banking capital
The commission re ently made numerous
chang? s in the composition of thi ?board of
directora of the reserve association. There
are to he seven ex-offlcio members, I
of six, the Secretary of Agriculture being
sdded to the list, and only nine members
instead of twelve who are not bankers, the
three being transferred to the list to
tx choren by the voting repr?sentatives of
,*S trlcts, which Is ?nlarged
from twelve to fifteen.
The commission will meet agnin to-mor?
row. t?i add the finiihing toucheB to the
report, which, it is understood, will ?be
ready for presentation to Congress
day. It will be presented in the Benste by
Mi. Burton, of Ohio, and In the HouFe by

President Has Not Yet Selected
Justice Harlan's Successor.
UNINFLUENCED BY PROTEST
Kansas Judge Still the Favorite,
but Choice Will Not Be Made
for Several Days.
It/rem Th? Tribune Bureau I
Washington, .'an fi The President has
not decided to appoint Judge William ? '.
Hook, of Kanf-aa. to the guprems ?'?nirt.
lie still baa eevetnl names iindei- consid?
eration, and will not rSSCh a Ann! ?1??? islon
until after Ihe return from Panama of the
Attorney General, which probably will be
nhotit January 11. These fa?*ts were mude
! Known by the Pieeidcnt to-day to ?-aller-i
I s ho acked about hie decision. Among the
I name* the Presiden? Iih* Still under ? on- ;
I slderatlon, In addition to thnt of Judge
I Hook, are those of the Secretary of ?om
! msree and Labor, .Mr Nat-el. ?nd Frank R
! Kellogg, of Minnesota. The abatement
? that before his death JttStlCS Brewer tol?l
i Ihe President that Judge Hook was not ?
I fit man for appointment to the Supreme '
i ?'ourt was denied by President Taft to
Purely a* a sporting proposition. Judge '
' Hook In prohHlily the "best bet,'' Irut Mr '
| Taft hap persistently refrained from com?
I mining himself, ?md there Is nothing to j
; prevent a change of his present view at i
' any time. The protests against the ap- \
I jiolntment of Judge Hook have had little I
I weight with the Presiden? In fact, he re- ?
j gards them as far too much In the nature ?
?if the "recall'' to receive them with entire
patience. All ?he protest? thus far i a
celved have heen beaed <?n the Oklahoma
railroad rate decision, in whl? h Judge
Hook held that a reduction from a S-cent
to a 2-cent rate was confisca tory Tl.at.
according to the President, was ? ?(?lec?
tion of fa.-t, not of law. and no one could
form an adequate Judgment of the opinion
without making himself familiar with all
the fa.-ts which le?l 10 it
The fact that the dc-lslon was unpopular
does not appeal to President Taft In the
least. Ills Idea of a lit j nice |?? or.e ?a no
would render his de?sislon wholly without
regard to ?popular sentiment, and the fact
that Judge Honk had the courage to do this
i would count as a point in his favor with
the President, rather th?.n against him. A;;
to whether or not Judge Hook formed a
correct opinion in view of all ihe facts If, \
of course, ?a wholly different matte?.
The general report that the President had |
decided In favor of Judge Hook is explained
by the feel that, talking to a man whose j
o??!nl'in he valued and who was urging the
qualifications of Mr. Kellogg. the President !
?dosed the disenssien by asking whether !
the Kellogg bscker honestly believed that ;
Mr. Kellogg would make a better Justice -
than Judge Hook, from which Mr. Kel?
logg's friend appears to have drawn the
con- luslon thic tne President had made up
his mind fn favor of the Kanfap Jurist
There is no other duty connect<-.l with
his office to which the President attaches
so much Importance as the selection of
members of th? Supreme ?'ourt, and he
make? his decisions only after s most
painstaking and tedious process of elimina- :
tl??n. It Is, thrrefcre, unsafe to ha?e pre?
dictions en any chance remark he may j
mak- in that process and It is a fact that j
to-night the President does not know whom j
'he will eppOint to the piece made \ a cant1
by the death of Justice Harlan.
