lhe first wltnesa was William W. I'loud.
Mdnat of the State Bank of Maryland,
who haid hia bank had applled for clear*
ing house prlvllegcs. but had been re
fused because It waa not a member of
the Baltlmore Clearing Houae. but desired
to clear tn rough another bank that waa.
Doea the Baltlmore Clearing Houae
j rescrlbe rulea which prevent a bank
maklng ita own price for exchange on
out-of-town checks?" aaked Mr. t'nter
"Yea. It amounts to that." answered
"But that is throttllng competition,
"Well. I wouldn't say 'throttllng.' " said
John R. Bland. preaident of the l'nlted

who followed Mr. Cloud, said hla com
j.anv had sought in vain to secure the
prlvllege of clearing out-of-town ehookl
through its bar.ka of deposlt, which were
members of the association, or to secure

Waldo N'ewcomcr, manager of the Bal?

clearing house had declded that ne
more banks were to be admltted to clear?
ing house prlvlleges without submitting
to the rults of lhe clearing houae.
"If they were thus admltted," he aald,
? they mlght proceed by unconservatlve
methoda to cut rates of exchange."
Menry B. Wlkox. presiden* of the First

one of the membera of the Clearing House
