It was urged that the federal hoard
ho deprived of all powers of Initiative,
leaving thai function with the pro

bankers. Strong criticism was made of
tho reserve features of the bill.
The bankers declared that as at
present drawn It would decentralize
croillts to such an extent as to Im
pair business seriously, some maln
talning tliat they would be obliged
raatertaly to decrease their loans.
They asked for a reduction of the re
serve required of country and reserve
city banks and such a relaxation an
would permit the continuance of a
proportion Of reserves, with reserve
agents us at present, instead of forc
ing the reserves into the federal re
serve hanks or keeping them in the
banks' own vaults.
Senator Owens promised to take all
recommendations under consideration.
