Mr. President and Gentlemen
Convention : From tho conversation that
have had with one another, it appears
all very much of one mind rh to
have come together for. We do not
propose to organize a secret society, or to
form any kind of offensive or defensive
alliance, but rather to establish a sort of
social union for the interchange of thought
and opinion. The original suggestion that
sent out to the several cashiers of
Peninsula iu regard to this meetiug
a cashier's convention for the purpose of
disen«sing matters of mutual interest,making
the acquaintance of ouc another and having
pleasant a time as possible should be held.
Replies indicating general approval of the
plan being reoeived in due course, further
correspondence and personal conferences
■ued, resulting iu the selection of the present
time and place.
In stating the object of this mooting
only enlarge upon the ideas set forth iu this,
the original

"If bank offloera are picked men,

aud other evils which, iu au older time,

Our bankers, it was frequently' said a quarter

for, as I have said before, being of kindrod
