JKXKS UIVKS VIKWS Favors ItHiikpi'H on Hcm-I'vo Hotml nnd h Miijority in llnincli Hanks. Washington-, Oct. 2". Piof .leiemlah W, Jenks of New York attended tho exciutlvc session of the Senate Commit i'r on Hnnklng nnd Currency to-day. The rsslon was executive, only In name, and Prof. Jenks's v lews nnd digest of the re vision of the tllai-s-Owcii kill which he furnished the committee, will he Incor porated In the heating nnd made public to-morrow. The coming ol Prof. Jenks served to postpone the first trial of strength ot the Administration and nntl-Administration members of the committee, l-rli-nds of the Vniiderllp plan anil of the ctntiitt hank Idea concede that Sena tor Itecil has cone oxer to the President lux and baggage. Senator O'liormnn, si III pi-ifmlng tho lentrul hank Idea with proper and adequate number of branch hanks, stems to he verging toward the opinion that there are. insurmountable obstacles of a legislative character which Hand betwetnthe committee majority and the final approval of such n bill. To Tub Sun lorrespomlent Mr. o'tlor man said : "The first business liefore the commit tet will be the dtclslon of the basic ques tion of the hill, the centralization or decentralization of the federal reserve. There will he material modifications In the bill. "The committee n 111 decide this Ini poitunt point flist of nil whether It Is In faor of the central leserve bank or a iiMteil.il modification of the regional bank pta n. ol More Than Irtra Bank. "Tline will certainly not be moie than r.'iin banks, probably six, as the division of the L'nlted States Into regions would rfiii to Indicate thnt It will be a com pMiathtly simple matter to establish six of tliest regional banks, namely. In Hon ton. New York. Chicago. St. Louis. New Oilcans and San Francisco, and then If the committee can be convinced after adopting this general plan that it Is a feasible thing to establish on of the rtg.'ona! banks In IHnver the limit will haw bt en reached." Stnntoi O'Ooiman has not et given up hope of the committee-' i holding fast to its intention, as shown last Thursday, to wilte Into the bill the provision for the crcHtlon of the single central reserve bank with headquarter at Washington anil ten in a dozen branches of the Kedernl hank In other sections of the l'nlted States. The fact that the House of Itepres-nta-tlvts Hill not Indorse it plan may In the end Induct Senator O'CIotman to accept the leglonal reserve scheme for which President Wilson is contending. If he do'.s It will be only after substantial con cessions have been made in the way of amendments to the (llat.s-Owrn bill. The Itepubllcan members of the com mittee a unit for the central hank Idea ate counting on the continuance of the support heretofore accorded this principle by Senator Hitchcock or Nebraska. This complicates the situation even in the event of Senator ci'Oorman being willing to accept the regional hank idea In ex change for concra-lona in other funda mental portions of the new legislation. Senator Hitchcock's position on the bill leaves the comrnltteea tip on the ques tion ol reporting favorably on the Olass bill, and Senator Hitchcock Is determined to stick by hl position. Ills remaining outside the Admlnlf nation fence jire eliides the possibility of Senator Owen's follo.teis suing befoie the country with a msjorlt.v report. Vole on O nrrshlsi In PdIIovt. Immediately after the decision of the committee as to whether 01 not the central or the regloiral system shall he adopted the committee will discuss and vote on the question of ownership. It Is safe to predict that on this point tlieie will be a change from the Glass On en olll. The public will be admitted to subscriptions for the capital mock of the bank or banks, but whether or not the banks will be the subscribes first to be, accommodated and the public ndmitted to subscribe for the residue or the public I to get the first opportunity to absorb the issue li a question on which the commit teemen are not jet prepared to take a definite laisltlon. Prof. Jenks's plan for a central bank, .while accepting the Vanderllp-Hrlstow theory of a central bank with branches, differed from Its ptedecessor In the pro visions with regard to control. 1'iof. Jenks's measure provides for rep leseniation of the banking Interests on the Federal reserve board, a minority repre sentatlon. The branch banks provided under the Jenks plan will have a majority control by the bankers. This Idea Is not acceptable to Senator Jlrlstow and probably will not find favor with the committee. Prof Jenks did not suggest lengthening the terms of the membeis of the Federal leserve board, as did Mr. Vanderllp, and upon this point he Is also at variance with the prevailing opinion In the committee. Prof. Jenks is In entire agreement wlfh the opinions expressed freely by Sena, tots that the- ex-offlclo memberships In the Federal reserve board accorded to th Secretaries of Agriculture and Treasury and to the Comptroller of the Currency should be stricken from the bill. The committee will resume Its session at 11 o'clock to-morrow, and It Is believed theie will not be more than one day's dis cussion of the central bank Idea. CONFERENCE BISHOPS NAKED.

MEMBERS ASKKD HIS AID Not Opposed to the Legislation Nor Confusing the Situation. Fia'nk A. Vanderllp. president of the National City Hank, answered the charge of Itepicsentntlve Glass that he had iwi - 'lrnwn a red herring across the trail" In putting forward his central bank plan with the purpose of 'defeating the Olass Owen bill. Mr. Vanderllp asserted that he had rrix I he was not opposed to currency legislation nor trying to confuse the political! sltua , tlon. He denied that he had been Incon I sistent In his views. This Is his statement In part : I I believe no one tegards sound currency and banking legislation as more desirable: , than 1 do, and nothing can be further from mv wish than to prevent such leg islation. I bellee that the bill that has , passed the House can be amended jo as i to become a workable plan. It Is not Iwotkable now, and I think not h single 1 member of the Senate committee believes that It is workable. I disclaim abso- .

W . ,1 !I ( fA 11 cacti wag also asked by three Senators to engage my mind with the problem as to whether or not a plan for n Government controlled central bank could be worked out. Im mediately aTter I completed my recommendations- for amendments to the House 1 bill I set to work ln answer to the second request. T " ' ' I, L 1 1 l M HIT" II ..... . ....... i . . . . . " ' t Hie rommlttee. In no sense dirt I ' volunteer the suggestions that resulted. The suggestion that I have been Incon- ' sistent haB not been borne out by the facts. I explained to the committee that up to the time tn.it I had undertaken to prepare this plan I had nlwnys felt that no central bank could be organized undei the control of public officers, liecause a j variation in titles fur different sections of the country would be necessary, and tin political presure upon a public board from a community where a higher late was charged would be such that no public board could successfully resist such pres- isuie and give to the bank sound economic I adm1nltratlon Trlrd In IJeselop Plaa. In emlc.iNOiing to develop the plan, the Idea as evolved of charging each bank minimum discount rate up to SO per cent, of the total amount that the bank might be authorized to discount at the central bank, and on borrowings above lh ' 10 per cent, minimum a progressively higher discount tale should be charged. That Idea suited the objection that I had alnas felt must exist toward a central lunk managed by public ofliiers. It offeis a plan for a bank that will rediscount for eery other bank on an exact equality, charging the same rv under similar con ditions to all. The request that the members of the committee had made of me was to pre pate a rlan for a central bank under Government control, not whether I would recommend some othei kind of lontiol. .My work on that plan has been strictly In cooperation with the committee, and the lesult has been my best effort to meet the views of thus members who asked me to piepnre such a plan. For many years I have consistently held that a central Institution was the only I Ideal solution and In the first hearing gave that opinion to the committee as em phatically as t knew how. I have given the Kenate committee my ' J,f"t Judgment on how to amend the House bill and then on how to meet certain fixed views of members of the committee that there should be an entirely Govern ment controlled central bank. The latter plan seems to me the wiser, but Its pre sentation does not Indicate that I am opposed to legislation or that I am try ing to confuse the political situation. Neither view Is true. I desire legislation and I want to be helpful to the men , ,nar'?. " me grove response my or THREE FINED FOR LOCKED DOORS Justice Decide That .Noon Hoar Is Included In "Worklaa; Hoars."

WIFE MKT HIM AT tiOSHKN Mrs. SzhIio's Estate Not Yet Ac rntintod For by llpr Attornpy. . Goshen, N. T., Oct. 27. The indict ment for murder against Hurt6n W Gib son was dismissed to-day. Gibson was at once rearrested and taken to New Voik In charge of Sheriff Sayeis. There jure three Indictments pending against him in the New York county tourts charging hliu with grand larceny and forgery. Two of the Indictments concern the estate of Mrs. Itosa Menschlk Szabo. It Ib charged that Gibson stole 37,100 of her estate and that u slgnatuie was furged. Two very happy persons this morning were Mr. and Mrs. Gibson. The Indict ment had been hanging over the New York lawyer's head for mole than a year for the alleged killing by strangula tion of his client Mrs. Szabo. who met death on July IC, 1912, while towing with Gibson on Greenwood Lake. Gibson was Indicted In October. 1912, and his tilal followed In November at Goshen. The Jury failed to agree ami Gibson was returned to the county Jail and tried again last May In Newburgh, the Jury again falling to agree. Since that time ho has been tontlned in the county Jail heie. Mrs. tilbaoa With llasband. Mis. Gibson anhcil in Goshen fioin her home In Rutherford this morning, and accompanied by her liusband'a attorney, Henry Kohl of Newburgh, went to the court house, where District Attorney J. D. Wilson. Jr., was In waiting. After a conference between the lawyers It was J agTeeu mai ine luuiciniciu euuuiu up dismissed. Olbaon said after learning the news that he was anxious for another trial nnd that he had evidence which would convince any jury of his Innocence. Mrs. Gibson waa all smiles. She- declined to talk, but was in fine spirits. She left Goshen for Ttutherford In the afternoon. Mrs. Gibson has worked faithfully for the Interests of her husband and bore up well during both trials. She has visited htm nearly every week at the county Jail here since he was committed over a year ago. It was brought out during the trials of Gibson that a woman who posed as Mrs. Mt-iuchlk. mother of the dead woman, was taken before a notary pub lic In Brooklyn and signed the neressarv papers making Gibson administrator of Mrs. Szabo's estate. Three weeks nfter the woman's death Gibson had drawn all her money with the exception of 33,200 nut of the savings banks, No nccountlng has ever been given by Gibson In the Szabo estate. Gibson Is none the worse physically, for his year's confinement In the county Jail. He has exercised In the Jail yard and appears to be in good health. He lias had his meals served from a board ing house across the street from tho court house ever since he was. committed here. Burton W, Gibson was lodged .In the Tombs nt 7:30 o'clock last evening. Ho' will be arraigned In court on the three Indictments this morning. The first Inkling of suspicion against him was made public in The Sun In September a year ago. Then It was an nounced that the Austrian Consulate would file, a petition with the Surrogate of New York county asking for the revocation of the letters testamentary Issued to Gibson in the matter of the will of Rosa, Menschlk Szabo and that new letters be granted to Dr. Fritz Fiicherauer, Vice-consul. From the Information thai Dr. Fischer, auer unearthed It was learned that Mrs. Szabo, who had lived In this country for several years, had saved about 1 1 0,00.
