What In Unit old midge about still- boalllS llllll n lilt CM? Central Hank Ideas In Currency Legislation. Since the House currency bill really establishes it central bank system In fact although not In form, the only invasion for astonishment furnished by .Mr. Prank A. Vamu.ri.ip'n proffer of a new central bank plan Is that Mr. VAMitRllP made the proffer. Pro fessor .Hrkmi.mi W. Jp.nks of New York I'll I verdiy and Mr. Chari.kh A. Ooisant, an iiuthorlty on money ami banking, have both supplied the Sen ate Hanking and Currency Commit tee with outlines of central bank M'hemes without causing consternation, each acting as did Mr. Vaniikri.ip, at tlie suggestion of members of tho com mittee, The truth Is. of course, that tlie committee by Including such project lu Kb deliberation: Is simply ris'ognl.ing the essential features of the measure which the House of Hop resenlatlves passed over to the Sen ate last month. We doubt very much If Mr. Va.n nun. i r. who presumably cut the best garment be could out of the cloth fur nished by the conditions of polities mill the terms of the committee's re quest, is fimdanieiiially ery far apart from Mr. .Iaioii II. St inn-, who ha expressed apprehension lest Mr. Van iuri.ip's promulgation of a central bank plan "prove it serious menace to currency legislation which is now nl- niiMt attained." Only a few days ago Mr. Ymviurlip pronounced the Housi bill as NO per cent. go,sl mid Mr. Sunn spoke f It at the same time as sip., per cent, good. The difference between the two liuaiielers is app.ir enlly .i difference of emphasis. So far as concerns the ery great desirability of enacting at as early date as Hilhlo a new hanking and currency bill as good ns It N isisttble for Congress to make It with the help of the Administration and the advice of experts, we are sure that Mr. Van iuiii. ip and Mr. Suinr are In entire invord. We are confident that alto gether too much has been made of merely surface Indications that these estimable gentlemen ilo not see eye to eye In respect to the prevailing re quirements of tlie situation. In the letter which Mr. Vmh.riip sent last July to Representative Class, chairman of the House Hanking ami Currency Committee, ami to which yr, t as lias just re ferns I In a rather nhuslxe attack on Mr. Va.nm.hi.ip. the Mowing statement was made: "1 see as clearly as any one the profound need for legislation and the tremen dous Impetus tliat will Im given our commerce ami industry If a banking system can be created that rests on correct t mimic principles." There N no evidence of a materiiil change lu Mr. Vamphuip's. attitude toward cur rency legislation which would cause llllll to dissent ill tlie slightest degree from Mr. Sunn's accurate) assertion "that a considerable part of the tlliini dal and commercial community of New York, and of the Kast in general, s anionl desiring a settlement of the currency question at tills time and Is advocating a speedy enactment of the pending measure, with the changes Ihnt have frequently ami forcibly been pointed out." What seems to be the case is that Mr. Sunn' emphasizes oscohilly the hopeful promise of legislation con tained in n bill which commends Itself to both linanciers as fully four-llfths ood, wlille Mr. Va.mii.ri.ip emphasizes Ibi- present defectiveness of tlie re maining tifth, without change lu which the promise of legislation would be tiu.i thing but hopeful. In respect to both considerations It Is a circum stance of the most favorable augury that the Vntiderllp central bank plan whs drawn up ami submitted, not on the Initiative of Its author, hut on In vitation from the Senate committee. The natural effect of studying the uliject of banking ami currency re form was the conclusion by Senatorial minds Hint a central bank of discount and note Issue furnished the Ideal solution of the momentous problem on which Congress In working. That, de spite tlie declaration of the Haltimore platform, tlie president of the .National City Hank, which Impious to be a Wall Street Institution as well aa the largest bank In the country, should bine been asked to devise a central bank plan Is proof of the prolit ac cruing from the Inquiry which the Senate committee Insisted on conduct ing lu the face of powerful pressure for the hasty enactment of a currency law. It Is proof also that the effect of regarding the central bunk alterna tive to a regional bank system should not be to prevent or unduly delay leg islation at the most propitious moment oier orrereii, nut rattier to raciiuatn the material Improvement of the Houso bill through iimendmeutH which arc no less desirable tliiiu the early passage of n new statute, Tlie House bill alius to establish a system which appropriates the sub stance of central bank principles mid practices; ami tho direction of Sena torial attention to the central bank Idea, together ulth the countrywide advertisement which It bus received, should facilitate the i'i fectlon of Dm measure. A closer approach lo the Ideal of banking aud currency reform can be made without doing violence lo political prejudices or partisan creeds. and a proHr rcsicct for tlie teachings of exarlence in central bunk countries must conduce to changes In the bill which Mr, Sciiipp himself considers needful, Among other things thus In dicated Is the wisdom of iiuiemllug tho House bill to iornilt u larger cle ment of banking mauagemciit of Hie proMc1 system with no less (iov eminent conlrol If Iho system Is to operate satisfactorily; fewer regional bnnks If reserves are lo be efleellivly mobilized ; a better ill-coiinl market oiganlzalloii by providing for domestic acceptances lu order to confer on com mercial credits (be full mil milage of the new sisiem, and u note Issue mote in conformity ulth tlie couutn's round money stamlii'.ii than the emission of t!ov riiment promises to pay reilecin able in other promises to pai. The I.e. son I'm in (he Sixth PUtrlol. The Sul.er hysteria lu the Sixth Assembly district nml elsewhere Is an object b'sson of unreasoning senti ment. The lesson ought to lie Useful to those citizens who are hesitating between old fashioned respect for and cotitldetice In tlie regular Judicial proc esses nml the Idea of a recall for Judi cial decisions, which would make the opinion of a numerical majority of tlie populace the ultimate tribunal as to question of law . Who can doubt that if the principle of the recall of Judicial decisions and the removal of unpopular .ludges had already been established, there would be a dangerous msshty of the re versal by mob into of eier.v law de cision of the highest court of the State and of the deposing by mob vote of the eight .ludges of the Court of Ap oals who voted for Sfi.t.it's removal, along with Chief Judge Criirx. who lit I v characterized Sit Kit's offences' Who can doubt that a campaign of passion, apsa1lng to Ignorance, In tlameil by seakers on the stump mid unscrupulous newspnia-rs. might so re sult; at least as far as the vote of this Kast Side Assembly district could accomplish If? The lesson is valuable and it ! well to heed It. Our Court of ApHals overruled and demised h.i a Siller mob! An Incident nr .Settling the Mall lrlver" Strike.

If rill be so, the iSovern incut should prevent it, and In case It turns nut that the Ooverniiient itself drove a hard bargain with the con tractors, allowing them to ligiire their prolit from misuse of tlie highways, the spivltii'iltlons should be so modified lis to permit of ilue regard for safely at all times.
