authority, the federation decided to
refer the matter, to a committee for re
port at the next meeting, although the
author of the resolution and several
I other delegates strongly urged its adop

resolution was Ida by C. C. Lancaster,
of the Citizens' 'Northwest Suburban

D. A. Edwards, of the Lincoln Parle
Citizens' Association, characterized .the
merger aa a "cute schema to boost'the
, stocks of some of the corporations," and
doubted whether there was anything
1 more to it. H. W. Oyster, of Petvrorth,
predicted a flood ot watered, securities.
,Hj D. Clarkson. of" the Plney Branch
Citizens' Association, proposed that the
newspapers of the city be given a vote
of thanks for their vigilance In telling
the peoplo ot the city about the scheme,
and sold that the time bad passed
,when thccorporatlons "oould put things
.of this kind over without the people

Cromwell, of the Pctworth Association,
'thought It "safer to lock the door be
fore the horso waa stolen."
The resolution declaring for tho half-
and-half principle was debated at some
length, and D. A. Edwards, of the Lin

new $30,000,000 corporations would be "a

sought fit to maka,uso ot It," meaning
that It would be a publlo utilities cor
poration If the utility companies cared
to come In.

and In the case of tho Washington
Railway Company, and the Washington

holding company of holding companies.
It Is generally understood In financial
circles that the, plana of the financiers

"Credit, not gold, is the life blood ot
modern trade,'r aald David B. Forgan.
tho Chicago banker,, at a recent address
In Chicago, Continuing, he added:
"Every Investment from Government
bonds to gold -mining stocks la a form
of credit All bank deposits and all
bank loans are credit. Our much-dis
cussed currency systems are credit.
"What we. loosely call money, and
even a large proportion of our so-called
reserves, are credit All the.. account
and bills receivable In the world are
credit. In credit modem business lives,
move and haa Its being. Credit starts
enternrlse. moves wheels. Si.im. r. ii.
roods, wages wars, makes civilization.
"just as tne blood pumped from the
heart circulate In every minutest ex.
tremlty of the body, carrying vital en
ergy to every' organ, every muscle and
eve-y njrve, so credit, the heart ot
v.nic.1 is mo oanung system, permeates
every department and phase and detail
of modern business. If kept pure, clean
and abundant, the result Is financial
health and strength, actual business,

moru, general prosperity, ir allowed to
becomo vitiated, sluggish and curtailed
In volume, the result nn.iirhtiv .-,,-

The report of the treasurer of the
American Bankers' Association, J.
Fletcher Farrell of Chlcaso, la an ex.
tremtly Interesting one. The receipts
and expenditures wcr msttra nr mn.
tine but when the list of Investment
by the association were read conserva
tive bankers expressed their keen satis
faction. It Is a list that one might recommend
to the nldow and the orohan, ultra
safe and sane but not especially profit
able from tne standpoint ot returns.
It demonstrates the determination of
the executive council not to be called
upon the carpet to account for Invest
ments that have gone wrong.
The securities are as follows:
811.000 C. B. A. Q. Joint 4's ot 1S21.
130,000 Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe
4 per cent bonds of 1M3.
$50,000 Chicago, Burlington & Qulncy,
Illnols Division. 4 per cent bonds of IMS.
830,000 New York City Registered Cor
poration Stock, 3ft per cent, due XUO.
Look at the list again.
It Illustrates In the Items the fact that
safety and not interest should be de
sired In the end.

opportunity Washlngtonlans have had
of seeing In one room the four hundred
designs or tne uransman matters.
The display, representing nn entire
house ntted with Craftsman furniture.
Is decidedly artistic and many visitors
have been at the store for the past four
days merely looking over the beauti
ful designs. In addition to the Crafts
man furniture, other features are a re
markable collection of Indian druggets,
Craftsman hammered copper lamps for
nan ana tatiic, cratismun pottery,

TREASURY TO HAVE
New System to BeInEtal!cd Which
Will Furnish Pure Air to
A ntw system of ventilation Is to U
Installed In the Treasury building.
Plans are being drawn for supplying
fresh air to aa many of the office rooms
aa possible, through a duct system
which will Hump In fresh and pure air
from tho outside and distribute It to
rooms and corridors having a minimum
of ventilation at present.
This new system will supersede a ven
tilator installed a tew years ago, which,
from a hyglenlo standpoint, has not
been a success. The old system took
the air from the west basement court.
Thla court la tho dumping place tor all
coal consumed In the building, and Is
the outlet for boiler rooms as well as
the sidewalk coal atorage cellars. Con
sequently a good deal of coal dust and
other Impurities were brought in with
the supposedly fresh air.
With the new system contemplated,
the air Intake will be high above the
roof In the center court, and a cloth
filter will removo all dust and foreign
particles that might otherwise got In.
Force pumps will distribute thla fresh
air throughout the building.
The proposed system has the approval
of Chief Clerk Wllmeth. Sanitary Offi
cer Jcsalson, and the ofllclal Inspector
of hygiene of the Government Depart
ments. Dr. Warren, of tho Public
Health Service. , ....
This Is one of many Improvpinenia
planned or already executed under the
crusade for better sanitation and hy
