POSTAL HANKS AT WASHINGTON.
Two Interviews Witli Prominent Officials
Who Favor Them.
Assistant Secretary Spauldlng, of the
treasury ilepnrtmeut, at Washington, on
the subject of pustnl-saviugs banks the
other day by aChicago Record correspon?
dent. Ho said:
"I do not think the Government on cht
to enter the banking business in competi?
tion witli private parties, out the postal
savings buuK need not do this. As I
understand the purpose of the advocates
of this system, it is to accommodate cer?
tain small depositors who could not in
most cases reach banks and wdio dissipate
their small earnings uuder present condi?
tions. If this system readies such people
it will prove a great benefit to them.
Postal savings banks open a way for
significant deposits to accumulate nnd
become of appreciable value to the de?
positors. In this way such banks arc an
incentive for economy and induce thrift.
Self respect accompanies tbu possession
of a little money, and such a system,
therefore, tends to better citizenship, it
also rends to place considerable money at
tho disposal of the Government which
otnerw.se would he lost both to the Gov?
ernment and the citizen. It seems to me
that the plan ought to be worked out to
great advantage to everybody concerned."
Third Assistant Postmaster General
Merritt said to the same correspondent:
"The people should be encouraged in
habits ot thrift and economy, and no bet?
ter way of accomplishing that result can
be devised than by offering them a per?
fectly secure antl reliable savings bank,
where small deposits can be placed at in?
terest. The habit of economy once
formed will rapidly grow ami-spread, and
postal-savings banks will prove a success
