BANKING SYSTEM TO BE BIG
BENEFIT TO NATION, SAYS HAMLIN
Governor of Federal Reserve R oard Gives Valuable Sugges
tions to Rankers at Convention in
l- Richmond, Va.
Raetamond, "Va., Oct. ' 14 Governor
Charles S. Hamlin, of the Federal Re
serve Board, was the principal speaker
today at the convention of the Ameri
can Bankers' Association. Governor
Hamlin told the bankers that he hoped
to see the new system in. operation In
a short time and predicted that it
would prove an immense advantage
to the country.
The European war furnished Gov
ernor Hamlin with an opportunity to
compliment the bankers on the spirit
they have shown In helping to restore
disturbed financial conditions but he
gave -warning that the problems which
have arisen from the war should not
be attacked so that "th& xemedie
proposed are worse than the disease."
He said in part:
"The federal reserve banks are quick-1
ly approaching the time of opening
and operation'. As soon as certain
necessary preliminaries have been ac
complished their doors will open for
business. - There is to bet a conference
In Washington on October 20 at which
committees representing the director
of the various reserve banks will be
present - and it is hoped that : then
an authoritative statement may , be
made of an early date when the banks
will fcpen. - .-,"' .. . "
"Many important questions . are now
pending before the reserve board.
Among these are ' clearances of checks
and the definition of eligible commer
cial paper. . '
"I want to emphasize the necessity
of establishing- branches of our na
tional banks In . foreign countries." We
have already approved applications for
two branches in . South America and
one on the Isthmus of Panama. .
"Along these lines our financial ener
gies should. operate to the great benefit
of agriculture,-commerce and the man
ufacturing. Industries of our coun
try. - . ' - i ' -' " "
"Our present difficulties do not .ap
pear to arise from the scarcity of ac
tual money- or bank notes.; There
seems to be an ample faupply in the
United States and much more can be
Issued. For. example, the total of the
Aldrich-Vreeland notes throughout the
United States available for issue
amounts to over a billion two hun
dred million dollars while there have
actually been shipped to banks only a
little over $340,000,000; in the southern
states alone there are available about
$109,000,000, while there have been shiv
ped only between 50,000,000 and 60,
000,000, ... ,
, "The real difficulty would seem to be
one of credit.' Mutual trust and con
fidence have been - decreased. As to
certain great crops, the demand has
temporarily greatly decreased in con
sequence of the war and value has
left its moorings the cost of produc
tion. Ordinarily such a condition
would quickly adjust itself. We should
see to it that the remedies proposed
are not' worse than the disease it
self. - - -' .
"The United States treasury Is in
sound financial condition. t It should
be remembered that the reserves to
be paid into xthe federal reserve banks
will not- reach their maximum until
after the expiration of three years.
At "the opening;'-however, the reserve
banks will begin operations with a
paid In capital of about $1,000,000 and
reserve deposits of about $250,000,000.
"It has been asserted that the as
sets of these banks when they be
gin operations ' will give only a limited
lending power. It should not be for
gotten, however, that this lending pow
er may be greatly increased by the de
posits of public moneys which the
secretary of the treasury is author
ized to place with the reserve banks.
Practically all of the government rev
enues could, be deposited and the gov
ernment debts paid by check against
such deposits. ' One can state , with
confidence that the federal reserve sys
tem at the outset will increase the
lending power of the national and fed
eral reserve banks by, some hundreds
of million of dollars." .
son goes without saying, but the ac
tivity of this aged lady to all such up
lift movements is the wonder of all
her associates. ' v .

JOHN C. VVILCOXSON
Candidacy of Democratic Can
didate For Judge of Probate
. ; . In Stratford Appeals
To All. -,
(Special to The, Farmer.)
Stratford, Oct. . 14. John C Wilcox -son,
the nominee for judge of probate
on . the Democratic ' ticket was born
in Stratford in 1859. During his
early years he attended the public
'schools of the town and after com
pleting the. required course went .into
the farming business" with his father,
which .occupation he is engaged in at
the present time. like, his father
when a young-man he enrolled in the
eDmocrartic party and ever since has
been one Of its staunchest supporters.
Mr. Wilcoxsori was for years treasurer
and secretary f the Stratford fire de
partment. A native' son, he is deserv
edly popular with his townsmen!
Without opposition, or a rival candi
date, he was elected tax collector for
i J. c wriiOoxsoN
four consecutive years. The Progres
sive party of Stratford indorsed him
for two elections. For several years
he was a member of the school board,
receiving each time 'that he appeared
for the suffrages of his town people, a
mOst substantial endorsement.;
For the first time in his political ca
reerhe was called on at the last elec
tion to defend himself against a rival
candidate. - Etowj-well the ' people of
Stratford valued his past services is
attested by the majority . of - 253 votes
which he1 received over the Re.publl-f
can candidate, Richard J. "Stanton, al
though almost all the Republican can
didates were, elected.. This surely at-N
tests the efficient manner in which Mr.
ileoxson hao conducted his office and
proves conclusively that the people
want him, respective of party affilia
tions, to be Judge of probate. Iji every
respect Mr. Wilcoxson measures up to,
the type of man this important office
should be entrusted to and he ie cer?
tain, to receive the support of many in
dependent electors. . . .
