HAS HIGH PRAISE FOR

Tho city of tfhlladelithln U run on a
Very cfllciont business system, In Ihe opin
ion bf Joseph Hnton, City Accountant of
Toronto, who has been Investigating tho
Recounting system In City Hall with two
other experts from the Canadian city,
with a view to Its adoption In his own
"Tho business system of Philadelphia
is excellent. It is very emclent, and
Cduld scarcely be Improved upon," said
Mr. Harton today. "Vou should, how-
nor, do all of your purchasing through
it central bureau.
"Tho business system of Philadelphia
boon urging tho adoption of Its own sys
tem In Toronto for some tlhe, and hns
been pointing to our system here In
Philadelphia, where the Municipal no
scarch Ideas are followed In the business
sldo of tho city government, as tho best
example. Mayor Hockcn, of Toronto, wns
in Philadelphia about n month ago, and
when ho returned to Canada ho sent us
hero to mnka a thorough Investigation.
"The legislation and tho powers and
duties of the city ofllcers are different In
the two cities, however, and we cannot
urgo the adoption1 of your complete sys
tem in Toronto for that reason. For In
stance, our City Treasurer performs the
same duties as your Cltj Controller, in
nddltlon to his duties ns City Treasurer.
1 think your system of separating; these
two functions could not be improved
"Tho business of tho city government
could scarcely be better handled than It
is through the departments in your City
Hall. In my opinion, the work Is divided
among them as It should be, under a nys
tem that piovldcs n complete check upon
"Philadelphia also has the advantage
over Toronto in the terms of ofllce of
your city otTlclals. We elect our city
officials for terms of one year only, and
the Mayor Is never elected to more than
"Philadelphia's City Treasurer's depart
ment and City Controller's department
are almost perfect. Tho City Controller's
department, however, frequently dupli
cates on the work done In other depart
ments, but this has the advantage of
serving as another check upon the work
"I do not thoroughly agree with tlio
practice of your Department of Publlo
Works in letting out all of Its work under
contract. In Toronto our city engineers
bid on nearly all work, so that the city
Is a competitive bidder for nearly every
"Philadelphia does need, however, a
better system of centralized purchasing.
You have a central bureau for this pur
pose, but It docs not attend to all of the
purchasing, as it should. Your different
departments do too much of their own
purchasing. This is probably due to the
fact that many of the older oniclals hen
will not readily change to the centralised
purchasing Idcn. They assert, however,
they must attend to much of the purchasing-
themselves to aavo time. They do not
save enough time, tliough, to justify ine
decentralization of this work. If all of
the purchasing for the city of Philadel
phia Is ever placed in the hands of one
bureau, the ofllclals In the various depart
ments will soon become educated to tho
idea, and will learn to plan their pur
chases In advance.
"Philadelphia also lacks storage houses
for the city's supplies. You have not a
single storage house In which to keep the
supplies that the city departments must
draw upon. "We have two In Toronto, and
It saves tho cltv money, because we are
able to purchase In bull: and seldom
have to demand aulck delivery."
Harton. M. A. Tally and H. Matson
camo to Philadelphia 10 days ago. and
have investigated every detail of the
business system of Philadelphia's cltj
government. They were joined by Mayor
Hdcken last night, nnd the four left for
Toronto this morning. As a result of
their Investigation they will advocate
rtoverat changes In Toronto's system,

the war has had telling effects upon the
American schools in Turkey through the
drafting of teachers for service in the

In operation. The war. she said, has
made more necessary recruits and money

Pour ways In which the new Federal
lleiervo Sj item may be expected to bene
fit Investment bankers throughout the
fulled States were outlined this nftcr
noon by Itudolph Dlnmant, of the New
York firm of A. 11. Leach & Co , before
the delegates to the third annual conven
tion of the Investment Bankers' As
sociation of America in session In the
llcllevue'Stmtford. Mr. Dlamnnt also ad
vocated Rtrougly having all Stnte banks
and trust companies come under the Fed
eral Ilcservo System.
In view of tho widespread speculation
among bankers of nit clashes ns to the
proteinic effects of the rtcserve System,
It wan raid the summary of theno, ns
iniidc by Mr. Diamant, was particularly
"We bcllexc." he said, "that the or
ganization of the Federal Reserve Sys
tem will icdound to the benefit of the In
vestment banker In the four following
"It will hnvo n tendency to stabilize
Interest rates, po that we will not be
called upon to fnco In our operations sud
den changes In the rates of interest.
"Any loss of customers or loss of pur
chasing power which the Fedornl re
serve system may bring to tho Investment
world wilt be more than replaced by
the general benefits to the entire coun
try resulting from a broader nnd better
banking system that Is going to be es
tablished without fall.
"It will go it long way toward eliminat
ing serious credit disturbances, nnd it
will place thereby the legitimate opera
tions of the commercial. Industrial and
agricultural community on a better and
safer basis, less subject than heretofore
to disturbances caused by factors out
side of their respective spheres of actlv
Its and of their own making.
"The foregoing will enable uo to recom
mend to our customers with more con
fidence the securities of oUr corpora
tions. Tor the dnngcr of mnny serious
obstacles in the way of the development
of their business nnd of the market posi
tion of their securities will be consider
ably lessened. If not entirely eliminated,"
EFrr.CT ON METKOPOLITAN I1ANKS,
All Indications as to tho probable effect
of the operations of the reserve system
on tho metropolitan bank3, Mr. Dlamnnt
afllimcd, point to the fact that there will
be less reason for these banks to hold
bonds for pcrmanont Investment. The
chief reason for this, he said, will be
because broader opportunity will bo
given for tho use of the funds In ac
ccp'jinco and other papcri with which
the commercial world will be financed.
Strong doubt as to the probability that
the Federal reserve system will stop
nlt street speculation was expressed
by Mr. Diamant, although, as he said,
the frnmcrs of the law wore most anxious
In their endeavor to limit speculation.
Speaking In defense of tho system of
speculation, Mr. Diamant declared: "For
llfo would fnll and we would be worth
less If we could not express our hopes
In some tanglblo wny."

The proposal this morning of George B.
Caldwell, of Chicago, president of the
association, thnl a J250,000,000 pool be
formed In order to give support to the

has caused no end of discussion among
tho bankers. While members of the New

by Mr. Caldwell was as new as It wuv
He suggested that the pool be launched
In connection with the opening of the
stock exchanges, that It be subscribed by
"bankers and Investors from coast to

the ablest bankers selected from New
York, Boston, Chicago and Philadelphia.
He also suggested that It bo divided In
two parts, a stock pool and a bond pool.
The proposition of forming a pool to
flvo security to the market, Mr. Caldwell
pointed out. Is not a new one since tho
banks of this country lmv formed a J1W,
