"A banker has only to study the profit

Bankers whose business it was to know
ladustrlal conditions believed eighteen
months ago that the country was In a
lomewhat dangerous situation; that In.
dustrv must slow down and put Its
Louse In order before a safe and sua
Ulned period of activity could develop.
"At that time the accusation waa
nu!e that the bankers were adopting
this tone for political effect, but I be-
I.eved then, and believe more strongly
to-day, that the slowing down which

mental condition. To-day Industrial
ttatements show us not only that the

keep in mind the troubles of 111 and

there are some details of the law ws
don't like, it will save us from the
financial upheavals which have been so
destructive in the past. Let us rsmem

MEETING OF "ANTIS"
Heckle Speakers, lint Fail to
Break Up Gathering: Po
licemen on Guard.
Fmefort, U I., June 21. Four police
men from the village force were sta
tioned In Brooklyn Hall last night to
keep order at a mass meeting conducted
by antt-suffraglsU. It was a good move
on the part of Chief Hoi and M. Lamb,
whose xWlfe Is a strong suffrage advo
cate, as Is the chief also. The suffragists
Invaded the meeting in substantial num
bers, wearing badges and prepared to
do verbal battle with their opponents.
The antia were lats in arriving at the
hall. Tbey said this was due to delay
on the railroad, but it was whispered
that some one had told them that the
sun's were on band to disturb their meet
ing and, if possible, break It up. The
antia had not progressed far when the
luffs demonstrated that they were
on hand for business. Questions were
fired at the enrakern Indiscriminately,
and they were visibly disturbed. One
of the speakers, a woman or course,
said to a suit who had been persistent
In heckling :
"It I had you by tho arm I wotua
surely lead you to the street.'
The suffs let forth a volley of applause
and some of them shouted defiance.
John J. Dunbar, one of the policemen.
urged the suffragists to show respect
for the antis, but they told him they
thought they had a right to ask ques
tions of those who assailed their cause.
flecorniilna- that his appenls were of
little or no effect, Dunbar let the surfs
go on with their demonstration. They
interrupted the speeches of the antis at
times with applause when it was un
called for and followed the outbursts
of handclapplng with volleys of ques
tions In rapid tire style, some or tne
men In the audience of about ISO told
the suits they ought to manifest a spirit
of fair play 'toward their sisters. To
this appeal some or me suns sum:
"Do you think we sre going to sit
here and listen to the kind of talk these
people are giving out without resenting
It? Not much."
Despite the noisy demonstration the
antis atuck to their posts and kept the
meeting going to a finish.
