SECRET REWARDS A GROWING EVIL Dishonest Practice of Bank Offi? cers Receiving Personal Compensation. Washington. December ?The gen? eral business of the country, as re? flected in hanking operations, was1 ?'quite (satisfactory" during the year j ending October 31 last, according to the annuul report of Lawrenco O.! -Murray, Comptroller of the Currency, submitted to Congress to-day. Mr. Murray records a steady growth in the volume of buslnoss and tho es? tablishment of some high records In this connection. He points out, however, that while augmenting some of the important elements of banking during the year, business did not reach tho average of increase for he past ten years. The comptroller makes the startling declaration thui "the dishonest pruo ticc by officers of national banks of receiving personal compensation for loans made by the bunk is a growing evil, and has already reached auch proportions as to call for criminal legislation on the subject." 'In this manner," ho adds, "either! the bank Is defrauded of lawful In-1 terest which it would otherwise re-1 celve or usurious Interest is exacted! of a borrower by a corrupt officer. A secret reward to the officers Is sometimes a deliberate bribe for ob? taining a loan on insufficient security." Mr. Murray urges that the taking o? money or other vuluublcs In this con? nection by a bank officer be made an offense punishable by Imprisonment in the penitentiary. The aggregate amount of assets of the national banks increased during the year approximately 6563,268,000, | or 5.63 per cent. Loans and discount.?, the biggest Item In a bank's resources, Increased only 3.59 per cent, in the! face of an average ten-year Increase; of 6:52 per cent. Individual deposits, representing 53 per cent, of a bank's liabilities, reached tho highest point in history j September 1 last, 554. IS9.U93,OH. This high record, however, was an Increase of only 0 69 per cent, over tee previous years, as compared with a ten-year average of 7.49. The hanking power of tho nation, Including the operations of every bank ?national, State and private?is esti? mated by the comptroller at 621,334, 156,790, an Increase during the year of (285,312,407, or over 13 per cent. The total banking capital is estimated nt 62,032,411,085, and the total indi- , vlduul deposits at 610.514,730,351. Tho net earnings of the national hanks during the fiscal year ended Juno 30 last, were $15C,9S5.513. front which dividends were paid to tho amount of 6114,iiS5,412, or 11.3S per cent., on the capital, and 0.S.1 per int. on the combined capital and surplus. Only Three Failure*. Only threo national banks were placed In the bands of receivers during tho year ended October 31. The United .States holds the great- , est stock of gold and silvor In the | world, according to statistics submit- : ted by Mr. Murray for the calendar ) year 1910. The total aggregate of gold in possession of the principal j countries was 60,604,100.000, of which | tho United Slates held 61,710,000,000, or 26 per cent., of tho total. The total supply of sliver was 62,699,500,000, this j country's share being 6739,500,000, or I 28 per cent. Mr. Murray recommends that Fed- I erRl or Stato corporations holding ] stock in national banks be made IIa ble to assessment as shareholders. He . also asks Congress lo extend to ton years the slatuto of limitations for tho prosecution of offenses under the na? tional banking laws.

CONDEMNS CHURCH FAIRS Tells Missionary Society Two Living Men Could Evange? lize World. Introduction of tho Bible Into tho . public schools and return to old i methods of religious Instruction wore advocated yesterday by former Mayor Carlton McCarthy In an address before Ute Foreign Missionary Society of the First Haptlst Church. He advocated tuo boycotting of tho public school if tho conditions are not changed, telling those present It would bo better for each religious denomination to follow tho example of the Catholics and send tboir children to parish schools, than trust them longer In such dangerous atmosphere. "If those godless public schools con? tinue.' he said, with extreme em pbasis, "you'll soon have a rotten, go.'loss community. Education, as it is practiced at tho present time, 1? to a largo extent a fraud. RcIIrIou Ostracised. "I don't believe our Christian reli? gion should tie ostracized and kicked out of the door of our publlu schools Just tr Justify tho whims of a tuw godlesi people. Of courao, tho teachers in our schools exert whatever influ? ence for good there Is In their power, but thoy are practically forbidden to teach our religion. What we need to put tho public schools where they belonc Is that the children should be taught a little morality and Christian? ity. "President-emeritus Eliot, of Har? vard, confessed that education Is a failure as a practical test. Too often education, as wo practlco It now, ruins the pupil." "The conditions of foreign missions have changed so much during tho last half century," said he, "that the pro? position of evangelizing tho world is not what It used to be. It is no longer a question of men nor of reach? ing tho heathen; It is now a question of money. The challengo of tho Al? mighty to the faith and charity of tho Christian nations is.

If he anl ono Episcopalian 1 have in mini joined forces, the world could bo evan? gelized In twelve month." Church fairs, bazaars and other en? tertainments, as well as tho mite box, received severe criticism from the form? er Mayor. He declared that such methods of raising money wore a shame on the Christian Church and a disgrace-to tho Almighty. Ho urged, Instead of this form of monoy making, a general loose,ilng of the purse strings of the congregations. "Tho great trouble Is," continued Mr. M..Carthy, "that the church la not run on a business plan. It Is tho one business that has the full support and partnership of tho Almighty, and yet It Is sometimes run In a fashion that . woulJ. shamo the smallest business concern. What would be tho effect on - o status of tho Virginia Trust Company If It should advertise a lawn party with light refreshments on tho Caplt.T Squaro Friday night for the benefit of the January dividends? "The reason men and boys ore not in th? church Is because it Is not run on many lines," he declared. "There's to.i much begging and not enough de? manding.
