Much more, is found decisive by your friends. -Robert Browning. INDISCREET. There is one thing that this rumpus between President Wilson and the Military Order of the C:arahao has done-it has served to bring out forci bly enough that these men of the army and navy t ho are qualified to know are dead set againal independ ence for the Philippine islands, at least for the present. The democratic administration, while yet very new in the official harness. enunciated purely theoretical views regarding its policy toward our eastern possession.s---v'ie l rwhich every man who has laid any thing to do with tlhe islands has seen fit to deprecate and, in private, deride and ridicule. Some noted authorities have been quoted and each and every one has declared that it as yet much too early even to think of giving the Filipinos self-government: their argu ments have been specific enoughl antid full enough to convince anyhody but a hidebound administration follower that the new policy is all wrong. Let them "regret" as much as they will, it cannot he gainsaid by the officer members of the Carabao that they aire opposed t,, the fads and furbelows of W.ilson and Bryan and that they meant I, expcress their vi.\s at tile banquet, wc hich they did. Their only indiscretion was that they :tllwed the proceedings to be mlade piIliic'. Neither President Wilson. Secretary Bryan, Secretar.

"LITTLE LOST SISTER." "Little Lost Sister," glaringly ad vertised as a white slave play with a moral and brazenly presented in a most melodramatic way, was wit nessed by a handfull of people at the MIlssoula theater last evening. WRONG IN THEORY A couple of days ago, The Missoulian quoted in this col umn a well-known Washington newspaper correspondent in connection with a discussion of the administration cur rency bill. We expected this statement to call forth com ment and in this we were not disappointed. Yesterday brought to The Mssoulian's editorial desk an interesting letter from a man well qualified by experience and study, to discuss the pending banking bill. This letter takes up the case cited as typical by the correspondent previously quoted, but it goes farther and explains some phases of the Wilson measure which, we are sure, have not been under stood by many people. Here is the letter which came yes terday; it is well worth careful reading: Editor Missoulinn---The illustration giveln liy the Washington cor respondent, quoted in your Tuesday lmornnllg's editorial, is scarcely just. It states an extreme conldo ii.n, iand on,' that in the field of le gitimaote banking could rdre hlt;ain. it, however, does not touch the heart of the tl;nss-IW\,w n bill. Mr. Jones, under Present anid, we tiresn.ne, under the new regime, will have to satisfy his local hanker that his actual, not potential re sources, entitle hill to a $20,sl,00O Ian. The inference of the illus tration is tihit the regional rest r've I;ianl wil hlie arbiter. Experience is that the loIal hanker must he the slo jitulge. Thle method of pro ceodure in the illustration is :also a; littll faulty. In actual proceed ings banker No. 1 woull and c,,ult inl ask Jones to take utip his $1i0,0t00 notel . Then Ianker No. 2 c-nlld take this on and provide for the extra $10,lain I. Jrlones, lthe individual, will deal at the source under nesw ('inditions tlie saine as Mr. tlnes now deals with his local banker. Ilnder the lproposed conlitions no bank will dare suggest to the regional reserve tbank miethlodll for treatment of corpetitive banks with ,lones' red iscolunts. The letter, however, asks for soler thoulght as to the actual working of this hill and suggests the reitolultioary tendency of it. The financial system is, (it course, the great artery thillrough which the fast expand ing bulliness of the counltry had to flow. Abuses crept in, hut their abltesillcont shoullld have Iblon throlll, h an evollltiollary p-rocess. An examination of the statements of thil national hanks of Montana, as if ictloher 21, with capitalizations of $100,000 or more, will show nonel carry ing redisi'ounilts A tlo.(Iry cVoincident with the establish ment of tihe lnational banking system fifty years ago was that tihe function of thnkills was tit lolll I0101 money, (ot to borrow. The statement as toi ontana tallks hows they have ,been and are being conducted Lllong c)Inservatlive lines. .\ (ursIOry stltdy of these statements will convince :nyil ont( th;tl 1r. .Ilnnes ian he provided with $20,000 ;as easily as $1iI,000. I'nlder tllh proposed tsill all the nimember banks will he expected to borrow or rdiscounlt i.ones' I aper with the regional reserve hank, else there is no call for its existence. In actual working practice what will this mean'? It is pIroided that hanks of the Montana class shall subscribe six per cent of their calpital tand surlulis to the capital of the regional reserve hank, a0nd deposit with it twelve per cent of their demaind de posits anll five per eclt of their time delosits. Referring again to the conptroller"s call of (,itaor _1. AlMoitatra national hanks had on 1de posit that day $3li0,X00,000; of this there were in deutmand deposits $20,042,000, and in time deposits, $9,96f,000, with a capital surplus of $7,984,445. 8o Montana national hankis would eclntribute to the capi t1ll of the regional reser\'o ank, $4.0,000, antll to its deposit from their demanllld deposll its, $3.,3";,,000; alul front their time dlenosits, $490,000; a graind total of $4,343,000. This $4,343,000 is now under the dtirect on trol of Montana's hankers. W'ith the enactment into law of the Glass Owen bill this IbecoeI.s tihe asset (If the regional reserve bank. I)llr merchanllllts, when they go to piurchase their wares twice a year, in\varially seek c'lticeago, New York atlll other eastern markets. When they pay for these same wares they ask their local banker for eastern, that is, ('lhicagoa. and New York exchange. This bill contemplates San Francisco tas the regional reserve centler for Montana. These Montana hanks, with $4,343,000 in a San Franclsco reserve hank, will naturally hr\ave toi withdraw that mu1ch from their lresent resterves, nearily all of w.hiich is eastern, thus reltocing their available exchange, oll-half of the present reserve heing $0,fi43,000. Tthe readjllstmlnt of reserve e'Inters, whichl will be contrary to the laws of trade, will fall upon the mlr'hant as w'ell as the banker. This trade laew will not be swer\'ed by the (llass-Owen bill, and in final anal3ysis ill hbusinless will haln\ tin lpartitiplate and share in the change. Missoula, )Dec. 7, 191i3. What They Would Do Yesterday morning, The Missoulian invited a discussion of the question of suppressing names in the publication of news of wrong doing, the affair which suggested the request being a local lodging-house case. A good many letters were received during yesterday. From them, these are taken, the rest will be published to morrow: Right to Suppress.
