COW RECOGNIZES OWNER Animal's Knowing Woman Decides Case In California Court. The Interesting case of a Holstein' cow that strayed from its owner last December and whose ownership was disputed, has been settled in Judge Douglass' court at Manteca, Cal.

NATIONAL EXCHANGE LAW Bank of Nations is Latest Ideas of Senator Hitcheod of Nebraska; If Created Will Have a Capital of $2,400,000,000 ■ Washington — international exchange problems probably will be given con sideration by congress as a result the active interest taken in the problem by Comptroller of the Currency Cris singer and by Senator Hitchcock of Ne braska, who lias asked the senate hank, tng and currency committee tu hold hearing on his bill, which proposes the creation of a bank of nations, Mr. Crissinger and Senator Hitch cock are working along somewhat dif ferent lines, but both have in mind tTTe creation ot an agency which will help to stabilize interuaional exchange. The Hitchcock bill establishes a bnnt Of nations with a capital of $2400,000,? 000 It provides that the secretary of the treasury shall subscribe to $1,300, 000,000 of that capital for the United States, paying one-third of it in gold and two-thirds in bonds which lie has under his control. These bonds might be BrttLsh bonds or French bonds or any other bonds of solvent nations. The bill provides thut $200.000,1100 of the stock of the bank shall he sold to the American people, principally to bankers, exporters and importers in, terested In International commerce. The remaining $900,000,000 of the ntp, Hal- would be offered to the other na tions of the world with the privilege of paying one-third in gold and two. thirds in acceptable bonds. The bill permits the other nations by trealles made through the president of the, United Stales to establish their rigtits ns stockholders in the bank ' Criticism is directed against tho Hitchcock bill on the ground that ft provides for governmental purtieipa^ tion in the banking business. Senator McLean of Connecticut, who is chair man of the committee on banking and currency, before whieli the bill is poud ing, holds the view that If a bank of this kind is established tHo capital should come from private persons and not he taken out of the treasury of the United States. Leading bankers of the country hold the same view Senator Hitchcock, however, in answering these arguments, contends that such u bank to be successful must have the power of the government behind it anil that, furthermore, it must have tho harking not only of the government of the Unit ed States, hut of a union of govern ments Senator Hitchcock believes that a bank of nations of this kind could greatly aid In stablizlng financial con ditions of the world. The promised bank would have authority to issue currency to be known as the interna tional dollar. "1 would dedicate the bunk of na tions to the financing of International commerce," said Senator Hitchcock In discussing his scheme. "1 would au thorize it to buy anil sell exchange, to lend money to Importers, to exporters and to banks engaged In fianclng ex porting and Importing.
