EXCHANGE SYSTEM PROPOSED
WASHINGTON, Dec. 24? An anal
ysis of the record of the Money Trust
Investigation Committee compiled
thus far establishes, according to the
committee's belief, these facts:
That money, which is simply
the medium of exchange in all
other civilized countries, has bo
come the master of production
in this country.
That a small group of men has
got control of money and there
fore of the national wealth in the
form of production.
That they have got this control
through the agencies of the New
York Stock Kxchange, a faulty
monetary system and a chain of
This is the abstract result of
The questions propounded to wit
nesses Mr. Untermyer show that
the committee has a well-defined plan
for the rehabilitation of the exchange.
Witnesses agreed with Mr. Unter
myer in many cases reluctantly, in
some cases without realizing his pur
Will Taboo Short Sales.
In this line Mr. Untermyer has suc
ceeded in getting these admissions,
which will be used:
That the exchange is doing in
terstate commerce business by
making prices of production all
over the country and therefore
should be brought within the Fed
That tne DaiiKcrs cosi 01 nuta
tion, as opposed to the actual val
ue of stocks, must be made a part
of the records of the exchange,
thereby letting people know what
they are buying.
That gambling should be min
imized by making it difficult to
conceal purely gambling trans
actions. This, the committee will
propose, can be done by making
it impossible for brokers to re
hypothecate their customers'
stocks and by tabooing short sales.
The committee will propose a sys
tem whereby the customer will
know how much his broker bor
rows upon the stocks deposited
with him. If the customer discov
ers that the broker overborrows,
the exchange will be compelled to
act against the offending broker.
Control of Clearing House.
The committee will present sections
of its record to show that the clearing
houses should be controlled by the
State or Federal Government, thereby
taking out of the hands of a small
group of bankers the power to ruin
their competitors, who must clear
through the central Institution or suf
fer great loss of business.
The committee will propose that
the only function of the clearing house
shall be what its name implies; mere
ly a place where banks of good stand
ing can check up accounts?as it was
when first formed and as operated j
in European countries today. The:
plan la to put ?n en(1 to all other func
WASHINGTON, Doc. 24.?For the
first time marching women will take
part Inthe festivities of inauguration.
Ten thousand suffragists, according to
schedule, will hold a torchlight pro
cession on Pennsylvania avenue on
March 3, the evening before inaugu
The idea originated with Miss Flor
ence Etheridge, President of the
Equal Suffrage Association of the Dis
trict of Columbia, who presented the
plan to the National Woman's Suf
frage Association at its convention In
Philadelphia last month, where it was
received with enthusiasm. Miss Alice
Paul of Philadelphia and Miss Lucy
Burns of New York were chosen as
representatives from the national asso
ciation to co-operate with two repre
sentatives of the six District suffrage
societies?Miss Emma M. Gillett and
Mrs. Glenna S. Tinnen.
Mrs. Harvey W. Wiley will head a
committc on hospitality, and a number
of women prominent in oiilcial circles
are associated with the movement.
Mrs. Champ Clark, the Speaker's wife,
has promised her aid.
It is estimated that the parade will
cost about $15,000.
There will be floats representing
famous women of history. Mrs. Tin
nen an expert in pageantry, will have
charge of this part of the parade. As
planned the parade will also have a
mounted section, of which Miss Inez
Milholland, of New York, may be in
The suffragists have received assur
ance from Major Sylvester, chief of
the Washington police, that they will
he given a permit to parade. The line
of march probably will be from the
Capitol to Twentieth street on Penn
sylvania avenue. This route will take
the marchers past the White House
and through the principal business
section of Washington. Stands erect
ed in Pennsylvania avenue for the in
augural parade will be rented for
The first plan was to have the wom
en march as a section in the inaugu
ral parade itself, but to this many of
them objected, fearing that it would
be construed as a partisan demonstra
Large delegatiaons have been prom
ised from the suffrage States and from
New York, Chicago, Philadelphia and
Baltimore. Each State will appoint
its own committee to look after its
representation in the line. Maryland
already has chosen Mrs. Ramey of
Baltimore to take charge of the Mary
The women have not yet decided
whether they will wear a special uni
form or headgear.
"You may depend upon It," said
Miss Gillett, "that that suffrage pa
rade will be a highly creditable part
of the inaugural festivities. We hope,
indeed, that It will be far and away
