Method of Transacting Busi

Discussed and Probed by
"Washington. T. C, April 20. How
Germany met the crisis of 1907 and how
she has improved her banking laws to
meet future crises was the subject of
J a special inquiry by an official German
1 commission, whose hearings have been
translated and published by the .Nation
al Monetary commission. The German
commission consisted of 24 members
and was a thoroughly representative
body, including leading bankers, mer
chants, landed proprietors, and profes
sors of political science. They took evi
dence from nearly 200 authorities.

themselves engaged in a discussion
which forms one of the moat interesting
portions of their report.
Among- the Questions most seriously
discussed was whether a charge should
he made "in what is known in Germany
as the note contingent, or the limit of
notes which may be issued upon a re
serve of one-third in gold without pay
ing a special tax. This limit of uncov
ered issues was, at the time of the in
quiry, 472,S29,000 marks (5112,500,000).
It was ultimately raiseG, as the result
of the investigation, to 550,000.000
marks, with a new provision, not pre
viouslv known to the law. for an ad
ditional issue of 200,000,000 marks
($47,500,000) during the last week of
each quarter. Above these amounts
there is always a considerable issue
covered in full bv gold, but when notes
i . ...... . i it..-.
are issued witnout xne goiu cover mu
tax of 5 percent becomes operative.
The question of raising the contin
gent, and even of abolishing it alto
gether, was discussed. It was contended
by Dr. "Wagner that the existence of a
limit of contingent issue had an in
jurious effect rather than a beneficial
one. He declared that it might even
hannen that shipments of gold from I
abroad were held back until the rate of
I discount should be higher. If Germany
had, like France, a maximum note cir
culation, which was not usually at
tained, there would remain at critical
times a large scope for extended issues
of notes and the granting of credit.
It was noteworthy that the Bank of
France had, throughout its existence,
been free from such restrictions, and
that it was one of the functions of the
bank administration to determine the
relation between the quantity of notes
and the cash funds. One of the evil ef
fects of a fixed issue which "was recalled
by Dr. Wagner was that when the Peel
act was suspended in England in 1857,
an event of which Dr. Wagner had per
sonal recollection, the cr" was heard
from the continental press that the
step was equivalent to the suspension of
specie payments, simply because the
Bank of England was allowed, on the
responsibility of the ministry, to issue
uncovered notes beyond the legal limit.
Accepting the decision of the major
ity, however, that the contingent would
be retained, Dr. "Wagner supporter" the
suggestion that, in addition to raising
the contingent to 550,000,000 marks, it
be raised still higher at the much-discussed
quarterly periods, for at such
times there may be a greater need of.
credit, and it is precisely then that the
chief function of the central bank of
issue comes into play. He suggested,
therefore, that the contingent or un
covered and untaxed notes be allowed
at such times to exceed by 100,000,000
or even 200,000,000 marks the author
ised limit at other times.
In this suggestion Dr. "Wagner
adopted the proposal made by a prac
tical banker, Arthur Fischel, of Men
delssohn & Co., of Berlin. Mr. Fischel
expressed a preference for abolishing
the fixed limit and for requiring a gold
reserve which should always equal one
third of the amount of notes, with the
proviso that If the reserve was less
than two-thirds the additional issues
should be subject to tax. He did not
consider a change altogether wise,
however, under existing conditions, ex
cept in the extension of the untaxed
issue at the quarter ends. He consid
ered it true that when the issues of the
bank crossed the limit of the untaxed
circulation it constituted a danger sig
nal, and he would not admit that the
frequent sounding of the signal should
dull the sense of danger.
Not Abnormal Situation.
He declared on this points "If we
have had in the last years such a fre
quent overstepping of the note contin
gent, this has happened precisely be
cause we have been in an altogether ab
normal situation in point of economic
development as well as In point of the
condition of our circulation and the
condition of the Reichsbank. and It was
actualljVbeneficial for us to receive fre
quent warnings. The danger signal,
therefore. I would retain, but I ques
tion whether this danger signal does
not often sound at the wrong time. If
we say that we must be able to have a
certain .quantity of uncovered notes in
circulation, we ought to keep in mind
that at the quarterly periods the de
mand upon the currency is much great
er than It is at other times, for an over-

This is just a short talk which we hope will be of interest and help
to you in selecting the tonic and blood purifier that will be of the great
est value to you this Spring.
That this is the most trying of all seasons on the health is a fact
well known to us all. It is the time of year when our constitutions are
required to stand the greatest strain, and unless properly cared for the
foundation is often laid for physical disorders or disease later on. The
great majority of persons are fast coming to realize the importance of
preventing disease. Health is our most ..valued possession, and its
preservation is a matter which vitally concerns every one.
Most persons, even those who are ordinarily strong and robust,
v feel the necessity of a tonic and blood purifier at this season. Some
have no particular ailment, but are weak, debilitated and run-down-.
The Winter life, with its decreased amount of out-door exercise, and
the fact that the cold weather has kept the pores of the skin closed,
prevented the usual necessary amount of refuse and waste matter from
being carried out of the system. These impurities entering the circu
lation have weakened and thinned the blood, and this vital fluid is
therefore lacking in the nourishing properties necessary to sustain
and preserve systemic health, when warm, active Spring life begins.
The general bodily weakness, tired, worn-out feeling, fickle appe
tite, poor digestion, etc., show how weak and anaemic the blood has
become. Frequently skin diseases, pimples, eruptions, boils, etc., break
out on the skin, and this is evidence of the impurity of the circulation.
S. S. S. is the medicine needed to correct this condition, and is the
only one on which you can rely to supply the system with the best tonic
effects, and at the same.time thoroughly purify the blood. The use of
S. S. S. at this time may save you from a long spell of sickness, and it
will certainly prepare you for the strain of the long, hot Summer.
Many people have put off using
a tonic until the system became
so weakened it could not resist
disease, and have paid for the -neglect
with a spell of fever,
malaria, or some other trouble.
S. S. S. is Nature's ideal tonic
and blood purifier, made en
tirely of the pure extracts of
healing, strengthening, health
giving roots and herbs. It tones
up the stomach and digestion,
rids one of that tired, worn-out feeling, improves the appetite and diges
tion, and in every way contributes to the strengthening and building
up of the entire system. S. S. S. is recognized everywhere as the
greatest of all blood purifiers, and this combined with its unequalled
tonic properties, make it a medicine needed by every one in the Spring.
S. S. S. is for sale at all drug stores. ,

"When I was ten or twelve years old
I had a scalp disease, something like
Ecald head, though it -wasn't that. I
suffered for several months and most of
my hair came out. Finally they had a
doctor to see me and he recommended
the Cuticura Remedies. They cured me
in a few -weeks. I have used the Cuticura
Remedies, also, for a breaking out on
my hands and was benefited a great
deal. I haven't had any more trouble

it should be regarded as abnormal."
The character of loans made by the
bank and their relation to the circu
lating capital of the country was
raised by Mr. Roland-Lucke, a former
director of the Deutsche bank. He de
clared that the most important point in
all the statements that had been
brought before the commission was the
solemn asurance of the president the
Reichsbank that in the future the bank
would confine Itself in its Giscount op
erations, even more than in the past,
to receiving legitimate business bills
that is, economically justified fluid
A Tremendous Snccess.
Continuing the discussion on this
subject, he said: "Gentlemen, it seems
to me that many of -you do not suffi
ciently appreciate the importance of
this declaration. Even if our whole in
quiry should appear to have no success
at all in forming outside opinion, 3
should consider that it had achieved a
tremendous success if it should have ai
least the effect of strengthening tin
Reichsbank administration in carrying
out this assurance of theirs. Gentlemen
if the Reichsbank keeps .to this princii
pie you have won everything that you
could, in any pratclcal sense. possibU

The duties of the Imperial bank to tiu
country came under discussion from
time to time and the difference be
tween its obligations and those of a
private bank. Even the lattrr, it was
insisted by Dr. Riesser, wrre not with
out the obligation o,f considering eco
nomic interests. "I have always insist
ed," he, declared, "that even the direc
tors of a private bank occupy an offi
cial position and do not merely carry
on a business; that is to say. that they
have not merely to consider private
business interests, but that iu every
transaction they are bound not only to
