But two of the three States which hove taken preliminary steps to In? vestigate the American Tobacco Com-' pany's proposed plan of reorganisation | were representi-1 here to-day nt the time set for the conference of their Attorneys-General. A telegram from, Attorney-General Williams, of vir-1 ginln, announcing his Inability to reach Now York until to-morrow, caused the Attorneys-General of the Carolinas to postpone the conference until to-morrow.

"we want to familiarize ourselves with the proposed reorganization plan. We do not know as yet whether we will op? pose It or not.

A1 torney-Genernl Blckett declared that the situation was so Intolerable that the tobacco States would no long? er submit to anything but a disinte? gration of the monopoly. ' Why, It was almost rebellion with the abused grow? ers in some sections In which tho night riders took a hand." ho said. "The trust fixed tho price, and that the growers had to accept or the al ternntlvo of letting their crops rot." Asked about the report of contem? plating criminal prosecution, Mr. Blckett said that all depended upon the future, the desire now being to determine If the tobacco monopoly In? tended to dissolve In fact as well at In name.

The Independent re be II tobacconists to-day tiled In the United States Cir? cuit Court a formal protest against the reorganization, alleging that the pro? poned plan would not bring about free competition. SHAW'S INTERVIEW DISGUSTED CHALONER In Desire to "Call Down" Literary Sacrilege, Virginian Wrote Two Sonnets Directed at English Writer.

Chaloner said that he felt that it was time that such literary sacrilege should be called down, and wrote two sonnets against Shaw, one called "A Morus Bashaw of Letters," and the other "Kluellen's Curse."' In the first of these, he holds up Shaw to ridicule for his attacking Shakespeare thus: "That Irish blatherskite, rude Ber? nard Shaw, whoso rufilian pen dread Shakespeare dared attack,"' und In the M-'iin,] sonnet ho makes Captain Kluel len attack Shaw ns the maligner of his creator In lunguage characteristic of th-it fiery character, wjio was the1 man In the play, "King Henry V." that made ancient l'istol eat the leek.

Undor tho disguise of this article Shaw, according to Chaloner. mode a veiled attack on him, and finally was cowardly enough to attack Chalonor's grandaunt, Mrs. Julia Ward Howe (whose name and relationship to Chaloner Is mentioned In the appendix to "Scorpio") and sneers ut hor (the author of "The Battlo Hymn of the Kupubljc") to get even with Chaloner. wJthout having the courago to name Chaloner openly.

After this time two* friends sent me word to try Swamp-Root, which I did, and I am glad to state that the first dose gave me great relief.

As an instance, the effect of this provision would bo to limit the Slate of New York, which hits about one-fifth the banking capital of the country, and which Is tho seal of the great financial Interests, to four directors among the thlrty-nlnc who are ele >ted.

The original plnn provided that the! governor of the nssoclutlon be appoint? ed by tho President of the United States from a list of names submitted by tho board of directors, and that the Presi? dent should ulso hove power to remove' the governor. The revised plan re j serves the right of removal to a two thirds vote of the board. One Important change Ik the admis? sion to membership of state banks nn-1 trust companies which ronform to a, required standard. A State bank or trust company to be eligible must con-j form to the same standard as national' banks, regarding tho relation of Its capital to the population of the com-; munlty It serves; regarding the rc-j serves to be hold against deposits, and' must conform to a certain standard re-j gardlng examinations and reports. Bequlrements for reserves to be held] against deposits are mado the same for national banks, Stote banks and trust companies, but tho present re? serve requirements of national banks are modified to che extent of requiring no reserves against time deposits, ex? cept for the thirty days preceding their maturity. This provision, w.hloh resembles those In the trust company laws of some Stutos, Is expected to make It more profitable for national banks to hold time deposits in competition with trust companies. Banks of all classes will have the full use of time deposits without reserve restrictions until thirty days from maturing time, when standard reserves will bo required. a provision that the association shall discount for nny member notes and bills of exchange arising out of commercial transactions Is further de- I veloped In the line of preventing the granting of loans upon securities. Tho , notes and bills eligible for discount; by the assoc'utlon are restricted to; Buch notes and bills of exchange as are "Issued or drawn for agricultural, industrial or commercial purposes, and not for carrying slocks, bonds or other Investment securities." This Interpretation will exclude' brokers' note's for carrying stocks. I Banks under this provision, It Is said, will (be encournged to carry their auxiliary reserves In commercial paper, Instantly convertible Into cash, lnstoad Of In call loans on tho stock market. | National banks will have the right to establish savings departments and to lend not more than 10 per cent, of such deposits upon productive real es? tate, In loans not exceeding 50 per cent, of the value of the property. The national bank net now prohibits such loans, but there Is n constant demand f6r them, especially In the West. Savings deposits In any of ' the banks In tho association shall he sub? ject to thirty days' notice before with? drawal, and shall be covered by a re-' serve of 40 per cent, of that required for demand deposits In the same lo-1 cnllty. I For the reserves of the association, It Is proposed that 60 per cent, of its demand liabilities, Including deposits and note issue, shall be covered by gold or other lawful money, with a pro? vision that Wit en over the roscrve falls below fiO per cent, the association Is hound ,r) l,n>' to the government a specinl tax. which increases In rato In: proportion to the deficiency. The operation of Chls in such in-1 stuncos Ih ?xpocted to stimulate an Increase iu tho rute of discount, and to bring In gold until the reserves again become normal. May Act na Clearing House. Another new provision specifics that any local association may assume and exercise the powurs und functions of a clearing house. In this reap -t some existing clearing houses are expeoted to become local associations. All lo? cal associations will be required to appoint examiners, which le a devel? opment of tho movement for local cleurlng houso examiners, now being promoted throughout tho country. One criticism of the first plan was that thero wae no way to remove a bank from an association. It has been provided that a local association may suspend a bank which fulls to main? tain its reserves or comply with other requirements of the low. It lo also provided that the note issue of the association shall at all times be covered by at loast one-third In gold or other lawful money. Any notes, however, Issued In excess of S900.000.00U must either be covered by lawful money In full or pay a apodal tax at the rate of 1 1-2 per cent u year. Any notes Issued In oxcess of $1,200,000,000 not covered by lawful money will pay a tax of 6 por cent. Mr. Aldrlch, In transmitting the plan to the commission, suld that the sys? tem of reserves and taxes provided Is expected "to Insure tho maintenance of adequate reserves by tho associa? tion and otherwlBO to provide such ef? fective regulation of discounts and noto Issues as would enable tho organ? isation to respond promptly at all times to normal or unusual demands for credit or currency without danger of undue expansion or Inflation." The features outlined are the only substantial changes In the plan, as It was submitted tentatively to the com? mission last January by Mr. Aldrlch, although detailed qualifications arc In? troduced at many other points.
