CROPSEY REPLIES TO
REBUKE BY JUSTICE
Culls lifiit'tlict'H Conduct and
Comments on (trout Case,
PiHtrlct Attorney James C. Ciopsey of
Kings gave out a stntemtnt last night
answering Supreme Court Justice lline
dlct. who recently rebuked the Ulctriet
Attorney In open court. Mr. Croprey re
fers to tho rebuke ns a "Judicial stricture."
In his remarks Justlco Iti-nedlet Mild
that Mr. Cropsey bad made a "public at
tack on the Judicial integrity" of every
member of the Supreme Court bench, and
paid the only cause for It was "demagogic
Intemperance." The cause of the rebuke
was an after dinner speech by Mr. Crop.ey
In which he referred to the Juitlces of the
Supreme Court In Brooklyn as "hand
picked" and "lp friends" of Udward M.
(irout, who Is under indictment for perjury
"The i moments made by Mr Justice
Ilenedlct In deciding the motions in the
Orout cases had nothing to do with thi
ilccUlor.it which he rendeud." the Cropsey
statement begins. "They were not based
upon any matters contained In the paper

judicial stricture the learned Justice snld
that the District Attorney hud been guilty

Mr. Cropsey then recites the dialogue

blm further. Mr. Cropsey sam. "very

It was belli'vid at the time that Mr Crop
sey refeneil to tbo public as the "tribunal"
that would hear hlni,
"Since the District Attorney took ofllce,"
the ntJtcment continues, "his honest aim
and endeavor has been to secure to every
defendant accused of crime all the rights
accorded him by law and the benefit of

HATKS AWAIT APPROVAL
The Federal Tteserx flank of New York
will open for huslness at 10 o'clock to
morrow morning. The beginning of the
new banking sstem In this State means
a sweeping change from the old national
bank system, which has been the standby
of the country in every crisis It has met
since the day of the civil war. The
call for the payment of the tlrst Instal
ment of reserves by the member banks
went out on Friday, nnd this will bring
In "to the bank on the day of Itit open
ing practically 100,000.00n.
According to a statement given out
yesterday by Hrnjamln Strong, Jr., gov
ernor of the bank, all th national banks
In this city will complete their transfers
of reserves on Monday and more than
1x7,000.(100 of the tottil of $91,000,000
deposited by the banks In this city will be
In gold or gold certificates. Several of
the largest banks In the city have sig
nified their Intention of depositing some
portion of tlu-lr reseiven In rxeesn of thi
minimum amount required, and It Is
believed that the excess deposit, will ex
ceed $7,000,(100, I'mler the terms of the
Federal reserve act tbo banks are required
to' keep an IX per cent, reserve. Seven
eighteenths of this amount is the minimum
for transfer to the reserve bank. Six
eighteenths nius". be kept In the bank's
own vaults n u reserve. The remain
ing llxe.elghtfeiitli may be kept In their
vatiltH or lu the reserve bank.
In spite of the tretnendoun task of
finding suitable quarters and a staff of
etnpln!,ees for the great Institution In
the limited time nlloted the bank will
be oiviied on scheduled time, as required
by Secretary McAdoo hen he overruled
objeetlcns of the majority of the directors
of the tu eh e ris"-re banks of the court
t: and annoumed that the new banking
system would he put In operation pn
November 10. instead of on Novemebrr-to,
as the director's wished.
