SAVINGS BANKS
REGAIN MILLIONS
a 1 '
Money Withdrawn by De
positors Frightened by
War Now Returning.
Andrew Mills. who is president of
one of the largest savings banks in
New York, referred recently to the
fact that within four weeks after the
armistice was signed $1,000,000 was r*
deposited in the savings bank of
"which he is president.* The greater
part of this money was in the orig
inal packages or stamped envelopes
In which the money was placed when
the depositor* withdrew it. #
A report was made in this column
?Of the experience of Mr. Mills, and it
was also reported that tn his opinion
man\r of the j-avines institutions of
the Uniteid States were having a sim
ilar experience. .lie believed that
within a few week* it would be pos
sible to report that at least$300.000.00">
of money that had been withdrawn by
frightened depositors, mostly foreign
ers. would be redeposited.
Tklrtf MilHojiM Rede*o?lted.
In this view Mf. Mills seclhs to
have be*?n already justified, for it
was semiauthoritatively reported in
the financial district a day or two
ago that in New York approximate
ly $30,000,000 that ha* been hidden
for several year* has been rede
posited in the saving* banks and in
other fiduciary institutions. So also
there eame reports from other parts
of the country that redeposits of
this kind were in progress and it is
the belief that within a few weeks
almost all of the money that was
withdrawn by depositors shortly
after the war began. and especially
aftt-r the United State* became ono
of the belligerents, will be returned,
most of it not having been touched
since withdrawal.
There are several points of view
from which this somewhat unex
pected release of money from stock
ings. cupboard* or other hiding
places can be considered. First of
all. the bankers speak of the favor
able effect upon the floating of the
forthcoming victory loan which
these redeposits may have. For the
banking world knows that it prob
ably will be chiefly or at least
considerably relied upon for th^
successful marketing of this loan.
Think Gla?? too < onl?dent.
Some authorities are persuaded
that Secretary of the Treasury Glass
?* i little too enthusiastic in hia
view that the loan will be easily
absorbed. although it bears no
greater rate of interest than do the
bonds of the Fourth Liberty Loan.
These authorities have no doubt
that if the interest rate is fixed at
5 per cent, if income from the bond*
he free up to a considerable amount,
and if the 1 ifof the issue be not
more than ten years, then these
bonds will be absorbed easily and
the banks of the United States will
be relieved from some embarrass
ment which might be occasioned if
the issue bore no greater rate of
interest than do the bonds of the
Fourth Liberty L?"?an. and if the life
of the bonds were for a long term
of years.
Release t*f several hundreds mil
lion* of rish. which has been for
three or four years as though it
? I d n??t exist, will furnish a con
yiderable aid. direet or indirect, to
the 1?mikks and to others in float
ing the fifth issue of bonds
I'roAf of I onflrffnee.
Throughout the I n'ted States or at
Vh<i. in those portions where savings
htt n k s are established, it was ob
s- .-ved *?>on after the war began that
depositors who were of foreign birih
or of foreign descent were beginning
to be timid. It was useless to reason
with them. They felt that if they
had their* money in their own hands
then whatever might happen they
would he safe After the United
States entered the war a report was
in wide circulation that the govern
ment might take over the money that
wan in the savings banks, and this
caused a great ^eal of anxiety.
Therefore deposits, in the aggregate
??f many millions, were withdrawn.
Now that the war is ended and peace
negotiation* are under way. these
i im?d depositors are revealing such
confidence, so far a* the safety of
their money is concerned, that they
are returning these withdrawn de
posit*.
(.rent Tunnel Proposed.
i >f a sudden public, opinion, hoth in
New York and in New Jersey, has
hoen strongly set fn favor of con
structing * great tunnel under the
Hudson River, whereby the mainlands
of .N'ew Jcrsev nnd Manhattan Island
.-hall he provided with an artery for
vfhie'e traffic eftual to any demand
likely to l?e made upon it for service
of this kind at least for many years.
From one point of view a public work
of this kind I* deemed to he of na
tional a* well as local importance.
At least thirty years ago the late
A list in Corbin stimulated public in
terest in the subject of uniting Man
hattan with Ijone Island and New
Jersey by means of tunnels under the
'Cast and Hudson river*. Mr. Corbin
not only agitated in public the ques
tion. but he went" so far as to cause
surveys to be made by competent en
gineers. These men of science chart
ed the bottom of the two rivers and
reported that tunnel construction was
feasible, perhaps it might have been
undertaken at that time but for Mr.
Sorbin's death. But what he pro
posed to undertake aearlv twenty
years later William O. -McAdoo. re
cently Secretary of the Treasury, did
actus'I.v undertake, having seciured the
mora!, though not the financidfc sup
port of the Pennsylvania Railroad.
So also President Tassatt. of the
Pennsylvania, taking advantage of
i he research work wh|h Mr. Corbin
t?ef?n. persuaded his directors to au
thorize construction of tubes under
the Hudson, also under Manhattan
Island, extending therefrom under the
East River to I?ng Island. Theee are
tubes for passenger traffic alone.
Pnhlle Interest Latent.
There were heard occasionally
suggestions that <?* greater tube than
any of these, or perhaps the world's
greatest bridge, should be construct
ed so as to bring New York and
New Jersey into actual physical
touch. But there was procrastina
tion. Public interest was not stim
ulated. It was necessary to have
the severe ice blockade of last win
ter and the harbor strike of this
winter to demonstrate that it is of
vital importance th-it the mainland
and Manhattan Island be connected
bv a tunnel great enough for the
^transportation of carts, vehicles,
trucks, express wagons, and the like
back and forth. Once started the
r movement now seems to be well un
der way. New York State may be
I filled upon to pay $6,000,000 and
New Jersey $6,000,000. for $1^.000.
000 is the amount which the
FRECKLES AND HIS FRIENDS That will make it altogether different. By BLOSSER
expert* report is necessary for con
struction of this great dry-land, but
under-water method of transporta
tion.
Tunneling an Kxact Science.
| Science has accomplished a great '
' deal since Mr. Corbin first agitated j
I construction of tubes whereby the i
! mainland on Manhattan as well as i
, Long Island can be joined by a 1
(highway beneath the waters. At
? this time tunnel construction is an J
[exact and not a very expensive j
science. The experts think that a|
great transportation tunnel of this ?
'kind can be contstructed in three]
J or four years, modern machinery:
1 and recent inventions making that i
possible. The experts are certain
also that the tolls which will be paid :
for use of the tunnel by vehicles j
will be sufficient to liquidate the j
bonds with which the construction ?
of the tunnel is to be financed with- [
in twenty years.
From all parts of the United
! States freight and goods are concen- j
j trated on the Jersey side, now haul- j
ed by trucks or other vehicles that j
i are carried on f<*rry boats to Man- i
j hattan. So also from New York'
City go enormous quantities of com-J
? modities by ferry across the river
J to New Jersey, thence to be dis- |
, tributed to all parts of the country. J
; Therefore the construction of a tun-;
I nel of this kind will be of value to
the entire country, as well as to
New York City and to New Jer- '
i sey

MARKET WAITS j
ON STEEL RATE!
Traders on Inside Claim!
There Will Be No
Change in Rate.
Hj BROADAN WALL.
New York. Jan. 37.?The stock mar- I
ket acted today very much as a I
.-?tronff man would act if after months ;
of unjust imprisonment he were .*nd- j
denly turned free. There was hesi- j
tation everywhere, and many false j
starts were made. Strength was ap
parent in all quarters of the mar
ket except wh?re there were par
ticular reasons for weakness. Op- j
timism grew rapidly arfd plans were |
made for building up a better mar - |
ket as a. basis for better business in
general. There was a farther decline
in the price of cotton and provisions. I
(irain broke badly, but recovered. The
market, as a whole, seems to be wait- ?
ins: for the steel trust directors to
announce the dividend rate. This
they will do after the market closes ?
tomorrow.
A few traders claim to have inside
information on the steel dividend. In
one Important house there was heavy
buying of the stock, because a cus
tomer says he is assured by direr
tors that there would be no chanfo
in the dividend rate. Another house, j
much more important from a specu- :
latlve standpoint, positive infor- !
mation that the dividend will be 11-4'
regular and 11-4 extra thus bring-j
ing it down to a 10 per cent rate.
Equally good information in ether
houses had it 11-4 regular and 1 per
cent extra The average opinion of
directors thus quoted is about 1 per1
cent regular and about 1 1-4 extra. !
Reduction of ocean rates ordered t
today by the Pritish are responsible ?
for drop of more than 1 points in
Marine preferred.

Washington yesterday afternoon The
trip was rflade at an altitude of more
than 3,500 feet and at a very great
rate of speed when the ehip was go
in* with the wind Private Evans said
last night.
" The plan of the city was quite dis
tinct. in spite, of our ^reat height."
said Private Kvans. "We could make
Pennsylvania avenue out very easily
and we bonihed the street fr?m the
Capitol to the Washington monument
with the latest issue of the "Coine- i
Back." the Walter Heed newspaper.
"I told the fellows to buy pink
carnations for me before I left, hut 1
guess I won't need them now." said,
the 18-year-old soldier when he was
back on ea*-th. A few months ago,
he was lighting on the Chateau.

Kvans is the first advertising solici- ,

American drive of August 17. which '
made it impossible for him to follow j

work and said last night that the war
had given him his one big chance.

HEARINGS BEGUN
IN DEBS' APPEAL
Supreme Court Hears Argu
ments in Attack on
Espionage Law.
The Supreme Court yesterday
hMrd argument* in the case of Eu
gene V. Debs. guilty of violation of
the espionage act in a speech de
livered at Canton. Ohio.
Debs is attacking the constitu
tionality of the espionage act, in
cluding the amendment made to it
last May. which is known as the
sedition bill.
The attack is the broadest yet
made on the law.
Other case* similar to Debs' which
ar* to be argued are those of Jacob
Frolwerk. Frank V. Blair and Jamen
A. Peterson.
Alk|(f? Krrf \ l?latlSB.
Iv*b*' principal contention was
that th?* act violated the right of
free speech.
Supreme Court granted requests
for an early hearing in two cases
brought by the Postal Telegraph
Company againxt Postmaster Gen
eral Burleson, growing out of seit
ure of the csblep.
The court partly reversed rulings
of Califoriya courts which hHd that
the State had a right to levy a tax
against the Bank of California for
the stock it held in the D. O. Mills
National Bank and later levy on the
same stock a* part of the assets of
the Hunk of California.
It declined to review decision* of
lower courts convicting Albert I/
More and Edward E. Carriers, of
illegal use of the mails.*

It also denied Albert Paul Fricke.

the cas?? despite the filing of an affi
davit of prejudice on the ground that
