The Insurance Question
Remains Unsettled I
THE WINNING ANSWER.
Question Why arc the people of El Paso
so unfortunate as to have the recently cre
ated Fire Insurance Rate Commission
(enacted by the Legislature of the gTeat
State of Texas) impose such utterly out
rageous, unreasonable, and actually pro
hibitive new Fire Insurance rates?
Answer The Insurance Companies Xeed
Oh. Mister Heil, you're in a flutter;
You have to earn your bread and butter,
And for protection against fire
Now find you've got to pay much higher.
Your ad, I duly scan. Sir,
And find, immediately, the answer.
For if you'd live on milk and honey
You have to pay therefor more money.
Call roses weeds they smell the same:
Insurance men (what's in a name?)
From, other merchants do not differ,
2Jut, arhen they can, make prices stiffer.
If competition makes business slower
Your rates on suits and hats you lower;
But if you do a booming biz
Your prices soar like bottled fizz.
You "boost E3. Paso to the skies,
Then kick because you pay the price;
And. think insurance men are funny
Because, like you, they need the money.
You see, sir, that I ecorn to flatter,
AEtJhough I hope you'Jl be my hatter.

Therefore we cannot afford to take any
chances, on having to pay the prohibitive rates
on onr immense stock of Summer Clothing
and Men's Furnishings. So we must continue
this sale until our stock is reduced down to
where the insurance rates will not be such
a burden, in case the law is not repealed.

by giving- the men a broader rierw of
their own life's work than can be ob
tained within the narrow confine of
the four walls of any one bank. Fur
thermore, bank clerks are hard "work
ing young men, for the most part seri
ously devoted to their business, and so
cial recreation with other mevmbers of
the clan, is of gTeat benefit to them.
Eighteen Entries For Prize Essay.
A feature of the Chattanooga con
vention will be the prize essay contest.
There are 18 entries in the contest for
the prize offered by the institution for
the best essay on the proposed Central
Bank of the United States. There are
other contests on more technical sub
jects, and also a contest with numerous
entries for the Chapman prize in ex
The prize in these contests trill be
awarded by committees of eminent
bankers, 'lawyers and educators. The
contests have been arranged under the
supervision of George E. Allen, edu
cational director of the institute, who
also is in charge of the institute courses
Banking Questions Be Discussed.
Another feature of the convention will
be a session devoted to a symposium
of six' practical banking questions. The
practical nature of these discussions is
Indicated by the subjects: "What is the
best system of handling transit items?"
"The problem of the exchange charge
which arises in the collection of coun
try checks;" "Suggest a plan for a
clearing house of credit Information in
each locality;" "Advisable changes in
the national bank statement," and oth
ers of the same general nature.
While the convention will hear sev
eral speeches by prominent bankers
and public men, the greater part of
the discussions will be solely in the
hands of the GOO actual -working clerks
and junior officers attending as dele
gates representing the local and the
correspondence chapters. The keynote
of the meeting will be practicability.
Maintains Educational Standard.
At Its convention in Seattle last year,
the Institute declared by resolution that
its paramount object Is to maintain a
recognized standard of education in
banking and finance and commercial
and banking law, by means of a uni
form coures of instruction, official ex
aminations and the Issuance of certifi
cates. To qaulify students for exam
ination, the institute provides courses
of study through alliances with uni
versities and correspondence schools
such as have accommodated their fa
cilities to meet the requirements of the

5fany Promotions Due to Institute.
I The practical benefits of the insti
tute are Indicated in the statement of a
prominent banker that among- young
banking men in the last few years more
than 90 percent of the promotions have 1
together. This consolidation tvIH be of
mutual benefit, as it will bring the
work of the young- bankers and the ma
ture deliberations of the older and
confefjiHnff bankers into coordination.
Many Vital Questions DlHcussed.
The Bulletin of the institute contains
each month several papers by promi
nent bankers discussing the general
principles of the banking- business, in
addition to a department devoted to
practical everyday banking- routine.
There is also a department devoted to
stitute " work. The organization has
none of the characteristics of a trades
union, undertakes to establish no rules
or regulations concerning compensation,
and exercises no coercive jurisdiction
whatever. It simply is an institution for
the promotion and dissemination of
knowledge of practical banking, com
bined with certain advantages of so-

Perhaps one of the most useful serv
ices of the Institute has been its prac
tical training- of young men In public
speaking-. The forum of the local chap
ter affords an opportunity for the
youngest clerk to enter into forensic
disputation ivith his fellows and his
superiors, and he discards his natural
handicap of timidity upon the actual
battlefield. A little later, when the
clerk of today has become the banker
of tomorrow, he will be equipped for
his work by a readiness of speech which
could not otherwise be obtained.
The social features of the local chap
ters while subordinated to the serious
business of the institute, are of great
value in bringing- together the young
er banking- element of each city. The
ignorance of isolation Is thus dispelled
