COMPTROLLER EXPLAINS BAD
Believes More Failures Will Come,
but These Will Ba Results of
Merely Local Con.
By Associated Press.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 31.— W. B. Ridge
ly, comptroller of the currency, today
gave out a statement dealing largely with
financial conditions during the year 1907,
in which he says that the conditions
which made this crisis possible are the
accumulated composite results of many
years of business. The whole world has
been over trading and expanding and
nowhero greater than in the United
The reaction was inevitable, and though
xl might not have taken the form of a
bank panic had we been better prepared
lor it with such a banking and currency
system as we should have, the time has
come when some or all must pay for our
"It Is the duty o£ the banks," saya the
comptroller. Mo restore business to nor
mal conditions by resuming their func
tions as promptly and as full as possible.
Fortunately there is not only the strong
est desire and disposition on the part of
the banks to do this, but conditions are
such as to make it comparatively easy
and to lead us to expect a much more
prompt recovery than has followed other
similar financial crises. The reports to
the comptroller show that the reserves
In the central reserve cities were but
HI per cent, against the legal require
ment of 25 per cent.
"The forty reserve cities show 24.72 per
cent of legal reserves, or almost the full
legal minimum, while their total cash
means are 38.58 per cent of their deposits.
"Of the forty cities, twenty-one show
legal reserves above 26 per cent, while
the balance of them hold over 30 per cent
of legal reserve, and all but eight of
them show more than -."> per cent of total
cash means. The largest reserves are in
the Texas cities, Galveston and San An
tonio showing over 38 per cent of legal
reserve and Galveston over 48 per cent
of legal cash means.
"The returns, tabulated by stato3, are
also significant anil reassuring as to gen
eral conditions. There is not one slate
which does not show an excess of reserve
above legal requirements of 15 per cent,
and an increase in legal reserve and total
ca3h means on December 3 above those
held on August 22.
"In the subdivision by states, the Pa
cific states show the largest legal re
serve of 22.28 i>er cent, while the western
states show the largest cash means, 32.11
per cent. Tha most • important signifi
cance of these figures is that the read
justment of bank reserves has taken
place with so few bank failures.
"Prom October 20 to December 30, 1907,
there have been but sixteen suspensions,
or failures, of national banks. Of these,
two have resumed and several more
should do so In the very near future.
"The reports of condition of the na
tional banks shows that from August 22
to December 3 individual deposits de
creased but $142,000,000, or about 3V4 per
cent, while the decrease In cash, on hand
was but $40,0it0,000 and the increase in
bills payable and re-discounts was about
"We have a very serious bank panic.
It would have been much worse, but for
the aid of the treasury department and
some oi the leading financial men of the
country. It will probably never be known
how much credit wa3 due to a few men
who furnished vast sums of money and
supplied credit from their enormous re
sources in the patriotic effort to stop the
panic and relieve the situations which
might have led to a far greater disaster
if they had not been so promptly met
and so successfully handled.
■Flora these facts in regard to the
banking situation it wuulcl seem a fair
conclusion that acute bank troubles are
past, but values of all kinds will have to
be rearranged. We shall have more fail
ures and probably i ome more bank fail
ures, but these will be individual cases,
the result of particular conditions. We
have been going too fast in business and
all classes of people have been living too
extravagantly. It will be good for all of
us to check this."

The Musical World
MARIE CAHILL is bright, natural, re
fined and charming in "Marrying
Mary," and made a good impres
sion Monday night, her first appearance
in Los Angeles. While she never pre
tended to be a great singer, her voice Is
sweet and far above the usual comic
opera singer. I think the opera a suc
cess and the music is refreshing, bright
and has merit. Eugene L'owels is a great
favorite and made a success of his role.
His voice is a glorious one—true, full of
resonance—and I could not detect any
failing of his powers at all. His enun
ciation Is beyond criticism, always was.
and his compass good, his voice rich and
magnetic. He ought lo have made a
great success in grand opera.
A new opera by Giordano called "La
Fiesta del Nilo" will open next season in
Italy at the La Scala.
' Jane Noria, who Is singing with the
San Carlos opera company, is a St. Louis
girl. She sang two season's with the
Savage opera company.
Everyone is anxiously waiting for
"Madame Butterfly." I understand Sav
age is sending his beet company to the
coast. I doubt if any house will hold
the people. It la very Bad, but wonder

I see Marshall Glselman has founded a
choral society In San Francisco. How we
wish somebody would found one in Los
Angeles. We have many good singers
here, sufficient for a club of, say 300, ex
cellent voices. If they find a conductor
who has hail experience and possesses
the demands and requirements necessary
to make this society a lasting success,
they will not fail in support. The musi
cal success of Los Angeles depends upon
the interest and enthusiasm created for
music in every way, choral, orchestral
and oratorio. We blush with shame when
we recall the performance of the "Me&
siah," December 12, In this musical cltyr
We do not need ar.y new director from
San Francisco or the east. We have two
excellent ones here, Mr. Campanari and

Few people not directly Interested In
the business have any Idea of the Im
portant part that women are taking In
music in this country, In the business
side ot music. Managers having artists
to place do at least hair their local busi
ness with women, and most satisfactorily
Is It done, as a general rule. Illustrative
of this is the coming western trip of
the Boston Symphony orchestra, which
will be made In the last week of Janu
ary. The orchestra will give six con
certs on fix successive days. In Buffalo,
Detroit, Indianapolis, Columbus and two
in Cincinnati. Five of these concerts are
under the local direction of women, all
of whom are taking large risks In bring
ing to their respective cities so expensive
an organization. These five concerts are
in Buffalo. Indianapolis, Columbus and
the two In Cincinnati. Local manage

Olga Samaroft is telling of an odd ex
perience s-he lately had. She was
scheduled to Rive a recital at a woman's
school in the middle west. JJy some mis
chance her piano failed to show up. By
another mi&chance her trunk went astray
and her third mischance was when she
arrived at the little town after dark In a
pouring rain, there was absolutely no
cab, carriage or bus, nof even the vil
lage express* wagon, nothing but a sea
of mud. Madame Samaroff and her
mother, who was with her, took counsel
with the railroad agent and got no com
fort from him. Then learning that the
school was. only half a mile away she
hired a stray boy to carry her luggage
and the two women with a protector four
feet and a half tall started for the school.
They were wet, not to say muddy, when
they reached their destination, but the
welcome they got was a warm one.
Madame Samaroff wanted to begr off and
come some other time, but the students
were a.l ready for her, and if she would
play on an upright piano everybody
would be satisfied. Some dry clothes
were found for her and in borrowed
clothes at an upright piano she played
through her program and then added as
much again for good measure, after
which the floor was cleared and every
body danced, Madame 1 Samaroff being dis
tinctly the belle of the ball. Bright and
early the next morning, C. A. Ellle,
Madame Samaroff's manager, received in
Boston a telegram asking him to nuke
another date for her in this school be
fore the end of the season.
