but tho Hi-publicans, insisted by the
null Moose, offered amendment after

the bill either on Saturday or on Monday
Mr. Underwood uguln demonstrated
that his control In the House 1 Invinci

every time. On occasions when the op
position appeared to be disposed to be
cantankerous Mr. t'nderwnod would'
calmly surest that the debate on the

nocossarlly and that while he did not
care to rush things unduly he would

declared that the manufacturers of

The Secretary has decided that, be
ginning on June 1 of this year, all (lov
ernment depositaries, active as well as
Inactive, will be required to pay Interest
on (iovcrnmcnt deposits nt the rate of
" mt cent, per annum on average
monthly balances. This Interest Is to
be credited semiannually on Jnnunry 1
and July 1 of each yenr At present
only the so-culled Inactive depositaries
arc pay In;: Interest on C.overnment
Secretary McAdoo's decision to in
cieaso'the Oovernment deposits In the
banks of the country ts due' first to a
desire to obtain interest on money now
lying 'idle In the Treasury's cash bal
ance. Mr. McAdoo denies that there
Is any emergency In prospect which has
Influenced him to this course. lie ac
knowledge, however, that under his
new plan the volume of the money in
eh culation will be increased.
The Secietaty's action led to some
speculation its to the possibility of Its
being In part a move by the Wilson
Administration to help safeguard the
country against any possible money
stringency that might follow the agita
tion over the passage of the tariff bill.
The $10,000,000 which Secretary Mc
Adoo Is to place at the disposal of the
natlonnl banks will bring the Govern
ment's total deposits up to $5:',fi4!t,9fi)
and will reduce the nctunl cash balance
In the Treasury Itself from ubout $100,-
oi.io.ouo to lli0.000.000. As to whether or
not this bnlance will be reduced still
further will depend on the disposition
of the banks to accept the deposits on
the new 'J per cent, basis.
Reports that reached Washington to
night from one or two of the larger
cities, indicate that the large banks
might not be willing at this time to in
i rease their deposits of Government
money, on the other hand, the Secre
tary offers nn inducement by n partial
change In the character of the securities
which national banks may deposit with
the Treasury as security for Govern
ment deposits. A statement isued hy
the Secretary to-night says.
'The S. eretaiy state" tlinl under section
M5:! of the Revised Statutes national

Theie has been considerable criti
i ism in Congress the last few months
of the practice which the Government
has followed of maintaining large de
posits In national banks without any
interest ihargcs. Representative Co

the Government over a long period of
years and his tlgures were impressive.
One or two bills are now pending in
Congress providing for the charging of
