Lathrop, special correa Dondent, for the Oregon Dally Jour nal at 'Washlngtdn, D. C. writes a follows of the desire of the west to be financially ' Independent of th east: ! A declaration of Independence by the far west from the political and financial domination of the east Is a development recently which marks a new day for the western people. It appears to be accepted as settled that banking arrangements will be Effected whereunder In the future there will be loss of Independence on Wall street by western banks. This was brought out In animated con versation heard by the Journal cor respondent her between several north coast men who are heavily In terested in banking In Oregon and Washington. Some weeks ago Senator Ankeny gave a dinner to Oregon and Wash ington lumbermen and lnwyers who were here to attend the hearings be fore the interstate commerce com mission. Industrial matters were dis cussed In conversation and after din ner addresses." The most significant expression was by Senator Ankeny, who said In sub stance that In the present crisis the east had failed to meet the needs of the west In banking matters. He de clared that It Is necessary for the coast bankers and business men to form such a union of forces as will enable them to dispense with the cus tomary dependence upon Wall street as the repository of bank balances. He cited the trouble which has been experienced by western bankers In getting their own money back from Wall street, and with emphasis and distinctness he proclaimed the com ing right now of the day when it is Imperative that western banks evolve conditions under which they may more largely operate on a basis of in dependence. Inasmuch as Senator Ankeny is president of a dozen banks In Ore gon and Washington and wields powerful Influence In banking circles In both states, his expression made deep Impression on the banqueters. His statement was Indorsed without reserve by everyone who was present and several amplified his theories and outlined plans to carry them Into ef fect. Several men at the banquet were north coast bankers. Two other western men J. N. Teal of Portland, and ex-Governor Miles C. Moore of Walla Walla at other times set forth opinions coin ciding with the views of Senator An keny. Governor Moore In an Inter view In the Washington Herald, launched a thunderbolt against New York's domination In politics and fi' nnnce, and said that the far west pur posed to get into such condition as to take care of Itself more completely In the future. Mr. Teal In numerous expressions, also gave voice to the conviction that New York's position recently had not been Ideal and discussed measures whereby the north coast could carry Into effect Its declaration of Independ ence from Wall street's domination. Mr. Teal has banking interests in Portland and Pendleton, and repre sents closely large Portland financial Interests who hold bank stocks throughout the Pacific northwest. Governor Moore Is president of Sena tor Ankeny's one rival banking In stitution at Walla Walla. In the southern states, the senti ment Is much the same. Western men who have traveled through the south during the past few months as sert that the same disposition exists there to bring to pass the Independ ence from Wall street which would make Impossible the recurrence of events which have marked the past autumn. The consensus of opinion apr to be that the west and south onnim safely continue In close banking rela tions with Wall street so long as that financial center recognlres stock gam bllng as a legitimate element In bank management. Had New York banks kept clear of the stock exchange ond had not the bank concentrated their energies In bull and bear movements, manipulating so as to depress by call ing loans and Inflate by lowering call rates, the metropolis might have maintained its absolute domination in national finance. It appears, from the Washington point of view, however, that the day has passed when there will be the complete control which Wall street has exercised in the past. La Grande Is In Darknes9. For the past two nights Jjcl Grande has been In Egyptian darkness. The water in Morgan lake has failed; there is no power, no electric Juice and no lights. A very small amount of power was available last night for running motors, but there were no lights. The electric company is try ing to make arrangements with the sugar company for power, and the difficulty may be overcome in the course of a few days. La Grande Star.
