LOUIS AGAINST SOUTH.; Would Have Government Ignore Claims of Southern States. New Orleans, Feb. 2. That St Louii in a frantic endeavor to secure a federal reserve bank is fighting to prevent such a bank being established in any South. era State, is the conclusion reached by a New Orleans committee of bankers who recently returned from a visit to several cities in the South. Shut off on the north by Chicago, on the east by Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Boston or New York, an on the west by Kansas City and Denver, St. Louis realizes that desperate measures must be taken to insure the Establish I i . . . . . mentof a federal reserve bank in that wymaw,we spent consiaeraoie time. city," said General Manager M.

"We came a long way, and right through St. Louis, to Kansas City sim ply because we wanted the very best cattle we could get And we found them here." Knor Everett, of Union City, Tenn., made this statement late yesterday afternoon after they had fin ished buying a large string of extra choice Angus steers averaging 600 pounds, that (fist $3. "We picked a" good many bunches over in selecting these steers," added Mr. Everett. "With so many cattle to pick from, as is the case on the Kansas merits of the case (which are sufficient in themselves) the Wilson administra tion would not and could not permit the South to be so grossly ignored. It was the Democratic votes of the South in Congress which made the federal reserve bank system a possibility, but under the St. Louis plan the South would be snubbed and put in a category of un importance. It is inconceivable that the selfish program demanded by St. Classes, which study the various desti unions oi tne world's neld. ouch a work and study was organized in Hall Moody Institute some eight weeks ago among the many loyal and Christ-loving students.

That we believe such bank should be located in the me tropolis of the South, the Gateway to the Mississippi Valley and the Panama Canal, may be taken for granted. We believe that New Orleans will be selected, but are leaving nothing to chance, and therefore we put the entire South on notice that St. Louis is doing her ut most to deprive the South of representa tion, and we call on all Southern States and communities to defeat this selfish and unthinkable program." Kindel is Disappointed. Washington, Feb. 1. It became known here to-day that Senator La Follette is planning to oppose the con firmation of Henry Clay Hall, of Chi cago, and Winthrop More Dauiels, of New Jersey, recently named by the President to fill vacancies existing on the Interstate Commerce Commission. Ine Wisconsin benator s opposition to these two men, it is said, is based on the belief that both have been too close ly identified in the past with large cor porations to make them desirable mem bers of the commission.
