THE RESERVE RANK ACT.
In another column we publish n
statement of the Federal Reserve
Banks. When the act under which
these banks exist was passed it was
claimed for it that interest would be
lower and the Dorrower would have
no trouble to get money. Indeed the
President claimed it was all that was
needed to make, with the tariff act,
the "New Freedom" and prosperity
complete. Here and there in, the
country bankers refused to Join, and
gave up their connections as Nattonal
Banks rather than do so. Here at
Hartford, the First National Bank,
under the advice of Cashier J. C. Ri
ley, refused to join and became a
State Bank under the name "Citizens
Bank." Mr. Riley had a deep and
settled conviction that the whole ven
ture would prove a failure. Many
others would have remained out it
they could have done so. Under the
existing conditions it was impossible
for many of them to do so. Now, it
looks as though Mr. Riley was wise.
Not only are the Reserve banks not j

The current statement of the con
dition of the Kentucky State Treas
ury shows that tho State debt is
now over $3,000,000.00 and that the being the greatest materials of our
increase during May was $162,-332,-69.
This will be the "paramount"
issue in Kentucky this fall.
The Louisville Post is bewailing
the fact that Kentucky Democrats
are apathetic this year. Why should
they be otherwise? However, to
read the Posts accounts of the great
crowds drawn to hear its candidate,
Mr. McDerniott, and the Owensboro
Inquirer's accounts of the thousands
, who, cheer themselvon hoarse over
Stanley, its candidate, one would
think, the Democratic ranks alive
It is clear that the Regional Banks
are a safe place to keep the money.
About two hundred and fifty million
national defense, they ought to have
extended to them adequate and fair
Protection, that our manufacturers
and laborers may be placed In a fair
competition with those of Europe and
that we may have within our oountry
a Bupply of those leading and im
portant articles so essential in war.
We have been too long subject to the
policy of British merchants. It Is
tatoes resulted in depressing the mar
ket all over the United States. True
it Is, in this instance that the con
sumer was benefited. But that does
not set aside the question of tho
right of the American producer to
be Protected In his home market.
And it is a right that should be en
Joyed by the producer of any and
all kinds of agricultural products, of
iron and steel goods, cotton and wool
en goods, leather and paper and all
other products of American labor re

on u higher plane than exists in oth
It is not only the growers of po
tatoes, but the producers ot all other
farm products that have been hit
and would have suffered more severe
ly had It not been for the war. Take
for instance, the wool grower: The
average wholesale price of "Ohio
fine" unwashed wool in the Boston
market for the five years 1915 to
1909, inclusive, was 25 V4 cents, as
given by tho Farmers' Bulletin. The
same authority glvefe the average
price of the same wool for the fol
lowing years as follows: 1910, 24
cents; 1911 20 cents; 1912, 23 cents;
The first four months ot 1913 the
wholesale price of this wool in Bos
ton was about 24 cents, but with the
passage through the House of Repre-
bly affected in her rice production.
There are dark hints by Louisiana
politicians of a threat to break the'
Solid South unless the national Dem-
ocratic convention of 1916 comes out
for Protection to sugar, rice, citrus
fruits and Iron ore.
However selfish this view, it is at
least a manifestation of opinion up-j
