In Carranza's Plan
For Federal Bank
State Banks of Issue Are
Urged as Aid to Trade
and to Restore Confi?
dence in Financial World
Nr.w York Tribun?
WASHINGTON, May 12.?The pro?
posed establishment of a Federal Bank
of Mexico, which shall be the sole
hank of issue in the Republic, as ad?
vocated by President Carranza, has at?
tracted the attention of bankers of
Europe and the United States, accord?
ing to advices received to-day from
The Mexican government has' been
warned that if it is hoped to obtain a
foreign loan, which Mexico realizes is
imperative, certain modifications must
be made in the law proposed by Car?
ranza, in order to create confidence
abroad and consolidate private and
public credit. Financial legislation ig
one of the subjects to be tauen up at
the present extra session of the Mexi?
can Congress, according to the call
issued by the Executive.
Friends of Carranza, the advices
state, have urged upon him to reestab?
lish the banking system perfected by
Ives Limantour under the r?gime of
Don Porfirio Diaz, with certain amend?
ments. This may be done, but it is
believed Carranza has in mind radical
changes from the Limantour system
system. The invitation extended by
resident Carranza to Limantour to re?
turn to Mexico and resume his former
position in the affairs of the republic
indicates to some that Carranza has
reached the point where he is willing
to take the advice of an expert on
finance after several rebuffs from for
"El Universal," is urging upon the
resident the wisdom of accepting the
advice of the foreign bankers because,
it says: "A sound banking credit
would, no doubt, contribute to a rapid
development of national trade and na?
tional industry. At this moment, when
the eyes of the world are fixed on the
Mexican Congress, the realization of
this truth may be of incalculable bene?
fit to the immediate future of the
During the revolutionary period the
thirty state banks of issue established
under the Limantour r?gime have
either been wrecked, looted or confis?
cated. In the legislation proposed by
Carranza it is not proposed to reestab?
lish those banks as banks of issue,
that privilege to be the solo right of
the Federal bank. Foreign interests j
have pointed out to Carranza that the
state banks of issue rendered valuable
aid to trade and industry throughout
the republic in former days and the re
estabhshment of these banks would be
a step toward regaining the confidence
of banking houses upon whom he must
call for aid.
