RESERVE BANK CRITICS ANSWERED "Claims Were Many," Says Committee, "and Some? body Had to Judge." [FlOIII The Tribune Hureau. ] Washington, April 10.?The nation? wide criticism of the Federal Reserve : Bank organization CommlttOO*B de? marcation of rese?e districts and choice of reserve cities was answered by the committee to-night in a state? ment which charges misunderstanding of the committee's work. "Critics of the decision of the com? mittee," says the statement, "either do : not know or appear not to know that the Kederal Reserve banks are bankers' ! banks end not ordinary commercial ! banks; that they aro to hold the re s-TV's and clear the checks of member Tanks, make rediscounts for them and engage in certain open market opera? tions. An a matter of fact, the ordi? nary, every-day banking relations of tho community, of business men and of banks will not be greatly modified or altered. "Every city can continue to do busi? ness with Individuals, firms or corpora? tions within Its own limits, or In its own region, or in any other part of the : Colon or ?!>?i world In which It has i heretofore done business. , "Reserves are to DO held in a new way and in new places, so far as this . act controls them, but hanking and business generally will no more be con ilned within districts than heretofore, and it is simply misleading for any city or individual to represent that the fut? ure of a city will be injuriously af? fected by reason of Its failure to secure a Federal Reserve bank. Every city which has the foundations for pros ? perity and progress will continue to grow and expand, whether it boo such n res^r-''' k^nk or not, and well ln ? formad I snk< n especially are aware jf i this." The answer is the first to be made by the committee, and it Is made not only to the criticismo voiced In Congress, but n!so to the cities which sought reserve banks but failed to get them, as well ns to the cities that would have pre? ferred to be in other reserve districts than those 1n which they were placed. Particular attention Is given to the committee's reasons for choosing At? lanta and Dallaa, Tex., in preferenoo to New Orleans; for selecting Rich? mond.

NEW LINE-UP FOR EUROPEAN POWERS Germany and Triple Entente May Form Alliance and Limit Armaments. I By Oshle to The Tribune. 1 London.

The first le that It may 1<vitl to & quadruple alli? ance whl^h will Include Germany, and the second Is that such a quadruple al? liance may lead to an agreement for the limitation of armanienta.

CIROFICI REVERTS TO CATHOLIC FAITH i Mother and Sister Again Visit His Cell?Phonograph Con? soles Doomed Men. When the news that Justice Qoft had signed an order to Bhow cause why a new trial should not bo granted was ; taken to the four gunmen in their cells ; In the death house at 10 o'clock last | night by Warden Clancy, It found | them In a state of deeper hopelessness than at any timo since a now trial was ' denied by the Court of Appeals. Despair had even taken possession of ! "Dago Frank" and his family, as was , shown when his sister and mother i emerged from the prison In the aiter I noon and the sister was In tears, in contrast to her attitude the day before, when ehe came out smiling hopefully. At first the four seemed stunned and Incredulous. "Dago Frank" even asked that he be allowed to ?leap undls I turbed. Impressed as they had been with the finality of their doom, they grasped but ! slowly details that the warden gave When they understood that the order might mean a reprieve three of the men wept. Before the four gunmen received. < word of the delay granted by Justice Goff, "Lefty Lo?le" Rosenberg wrote a last appeal to Governor Glynn, which was mailed to Albany at midnight. In It he reiterated the declarations of his own and his comrades' Innocence, and declared that at the new trial of Becker It would be proved that Harry Vallon i and "Brldgle" Webber really tired the ' shots that, killed Ronenthal. Warden ?Tancy at midnight remained ? closeted with Superintendent Rlley and three men who have visited the prison twice to-day In an automobile from : Now York City. The Identity of these | men could not be learned. The prisoners passed the day much 1 as they did the day before The Rev. ; Dr. Lee, the Episcopal chaplain, left ? the phonograph which he brought to the death bOttOO the day before at their ; request, and they had the same muslo ' played over for them. "Dago Frank," who asserted his In? tention the day before of returning to the Catholic faith, received communion from Father Cashln. the Catholic chap? lain. This would mean that If he had ony confession to make he told Father Cashln all ho had to say, but, of course, no Intimation came from the priest as to what was said. When his mother and his sister Mary left the prison the sister was asked 1f her attitude did not Indicate that she had lost hope, btrt she straightened up ', bravely and said: "No, we still hope something will 1 happen, even If not nntll the last min? ute. Mother came to-day principally to show Frank that she had not broken down. All of his worries are for her new. We will keep up the fight until the last minute." The only other visitors to the prison 1 era were Morris, Joseph and Louis ; Hledenshner. brothers of "Whltey Lewis." Joseph said he believed there ; was still a chance, but the two others 1 said that they and 'Whltey*' had given up hope. SPECIAL SESSION MAY 4 Governor Changes Mind as to a Date in June.
