elder on your bank boards, the hard,
practical questions of the day. That
is where the settlement is going to
come in my opinion and the world! turns
to you instinctively nove.
"When we meet these problems of
to-morrow I am sure that when you
make your decisions, when you decide
how this reconstruction will take place
(and your President has well said
that It cannot take place, the balance
cannot bo redressed, without America,
and America does not wish it to be
done without her) when that time
comes I am sure that the one great
practical problem will always be rec?
ognized by you outside of political
party?national interest for the adjust?
ment which is necessary for the world
to go forward."
The speakers at the general session,
as occasion arose, were agreed upon
the satisfactory progress of domestic
trade and industry, but warned of the
relation to ultimate prosperity of the
European uncertainty, of the dangers
of labor troubles and of the impor?
tance of diminishing paternalism in
government and of saner legislation.
Committee Reports Heard
The morning session, in which all
branches of the association "partici?
pated, heard and disposed of re?
ports by the executive council, the
committees on legislation, state and
national; the committee on state taxa?
tion, by the clearing houses, the trust
companies, the national banks, the
state banks, the savings banks and the
American Institute of Hanking and the
committee on public education.
In the afternoon the savings bani
division and the state secretaries' sec?
tion completed their individual meet
ings dealing with problems pccullai
to their interests. A feature of tin
latter was the recommendation tha'
legislation placing taxation of ban!
stocks an an equal basis with that of
personal property be pressed in the
Dr. George E. Vincent, of the Rocke?
feller Foundation, told the convention
?something of public health as-sets and
various financiul and crime statistics
were presented in the mass of reports.
Almost every phase of banking activ?
ity was covered in the discussions, as
well as allied business topics.
The Committee of One Hundred In
charge of convention arrangements
gave a luncheon to the executive coun?
cil or the association at the Waldorf,
at which Governor Benjamin Strong
jr. of the New York Federal Reserve
Dank, Mr. Herrick, Mr. McAdams,
Dwight W. Morrow, of J. P. Morgan it
Co., and John H. Puelicher, vice-presi?
dent of the association and spoken of
as the next president, were speakers.
Mr. McAdams urge?! the desirability
of having the New York bankers be?
come better acquainted with the asso?
ciation and its objects. He said he saw
in the association an opportunity for
great leadership and that ho and the
others of the visiting bankers looked to
New York bankers to establish that
Economic Reconstruction Needed
Governor Strong pictured as the need
of the world a reconstruction of eco?
nomic machinery so that there may be
more effective application of workers
to the production and distribution of
the things that we need and such a
reorganization as will insure that what
is produced is fairly distributed among
the workers in return for the work
done by each."
Ambassador Herrick pleaded for less
distrust in international relations,
warning particularly against propa?
ganda tending to alienate the United
States and France. He likened Eng?
land and France to "a man and his
wife who did not love each other par?
ticularly but who had determined to
get along together for the sake of the
children." He did not believe that
there would ever be any serious diffi?
culty between those nations.
The United States, England and
France must get together, he thought
work out the plan of world reorganiza
; tion and would, he believed, do so soon
| Mr. Morrow, limiting his talk largelj
' to words of welcome, called upon bank?
ers to bring into world relationship the
doctrine of trust and tolorance upon
which their business wan largely built,
Mr. Puclicher, pointing out that the
political chaos in Europe was the out?
growth of racial hatreds nnd economic
differences, rair.cd the question as to
whether racial groups nnd economic
differences existing in this country
might not also assume a political as?
pect. Governmental stability, he sug?
gested, rested on the triad of the mate?
rial, the intellectual and the spiritual.
Nearly 11,000 In Attendance
The attendance at the convention, as
measured by registration, passed the
10,000 mark early in the day and by
night was close upon 11,000. Between
4,000 and 5,000 of this total is made up
of the wives accompanying delegates
and a scattering of women delegates.
The record-breaking number who ;
have come to this convention, exceed?
ing by more than (5,000 the previous
top mark for meetings of bankers, is
regarded as due, asido from the attrac?
tion of its being staged in the country's
financial capital, to the return of bet?
ter times, enabling bankers to leave
their businesses. Every entertainment
billed has proved tremendously popu?
lar and for the trip to West Point it
was necessary to charter an additional
steamer, the Sandy Hook, which will
accommodate 1,800 additional dole
gates. Red tickets will be good on this
boat and white tickets on the Wash?
The difficulty of providing for the
crowd was emphasized further by the
necessity of obtaining several hun?
dred additional tickets for the women's
theater party to-night, which, it is esti?
mated, will be attended by more than
4,000. For the grand "ball to-morrow
night at the Commodore full police pro?
tection has been arranged, but it is
anticipated that it will not prove easy
to deal successfully with the largest
throng that has ever gathered for a
function of this kind. Twenty-two
hundred have been sent off on sched?
uled bus rides, and at a lecture ex?
pected to arttact 200 or so 1,300 re?

HAT American banking expects of the Con?
vention now in session may be judged by
the fact that the attendance is more than 50%
higher than was hoped for.
From its standpoint of 123 years of service t?
American industry, commerce and finance; the
Bank of the Manhattan Company is in a position
to say this: *
The Convention would have been worth while if
only as a symposium of authority on the prob?
lems of the day?problems financial, industrial,
commercial, domestic and international.
But we prefer to look at it with an eye to the future.
We believe that from this meeting of banking
minds will date a new cycle in the business affairs
of the civilized world.
