POPULARITY OF POSTAL BANKS IS GROWING APACE Trustees Find Venture Success-1 ful and Tending to Engender Nation-Wide Thrift. — WASHINGTON, D. C., June 12.—The trustees of the postal saving* system have come to the conclusion that the experimental stage In United States postal savings banks has been passed. The plan hus proved its merit. Front now on It will be easy sailing. Beginning this month the department will Increase the number of postal sav ings depositories throughout the coun try at the rate of one hundred a month. There are ninety-three now. A year from this date there will be 1,200 or more. Within a few years the country will be a vast network of these institu tions, into which the poorest can put his savings and sleep on the knowledge that tlie wealtn of the nation is behind them. Tho' Blinks Crash. Neat Fgga Are Safe. It makes no difference to the deposi tor whether panic sweeps across the country and banks topple to destruc tion all around him; the financial re sources of the nation are committed to the protection of the nest egg which he has in the postal savings depository. Contrary to expectation, the estab lishment of postal savings depositories docs not cut into the business of trust companies, savings. State and national banks, and herein is one of the signifi cant features of the system. It does not mean that depositors do not wel come the advent of the postal savings depositories and their guarantee of pro tection. In one way it is a tribute to the stability of the general banking system of the country, but, above all, it indicates that national thrift has re ceived an Impetus. People Are Becoming Having. The people of the nation are taking up the saving habit. Under the rules any person ten years old or over may have an account in his or her name. A married woman's account is free from Interference by her husband. Nearly every account opened in a postal savings depository is a new ven ture, net the transference of a bank deposit. Consequently the advent of the postal savings depository has brought to many persons the benefit of a savings account and an incentive to save against the “rainy day."

The great problem that will be threshed out by the trustees will be the selection of a new president to suc ceed Governor Woodrow Wilson. '79. There is a very general opinion that a new president will be chosen at this meeting, but the trustees have steadily refused to discuss the situation. From the start there have been sew., e.ral names which have generally been regarded as probable candidates for the position. Chief among these are Pro fessor John Grier Hibben. '82; Henry B. Fine,, '80, dean of the faculty and de partment of science, and Professor Henry Fairfield Osborn, '7'i, of New York city.

"We found that there were 18,000 New England owners,” said Mr. At kins, “and 10,000 of those were women. They were helpless, us far as represen tation was concerned, and I was urged to take a place on the board, which I did.” Mr. Atkins was asked many questions relative to the organization in 1887 of the Sugar Refineries Company which later became the American Sugar Re fining Company. He said the organi zation was to reduce the cost of pro duction and that he received for hi* concern, the Bay State Refining Com pany. which he valued at 3500,000, trust certificates of the securities or hold ing company of a value of 8900,000. Representative Madison, of Kansas, asked Mr. Atkins if it were pot a fact that previous to 1887 there was free and open competition in the buying of raw and the selling of refined sugar in this country. Before 1S.S7 There Was < onipetltloa. "Yes,” Mr. Atkins said, “there was free competition.” “That competition you found to be onerous, didn't you?” "Yes, it was." "You wished to avoid that compe tition." Mr. Madison continued, "aud it was for that reason that Mr. Have meyer gathered together yourself and about a dozen other sugar manufac turers for the purpose of framing an agreement to eliminate this compe tition, was it not?” “Well," Mr. Atkins said, "the prlnci i pal object was to reduce the cost of production.” “There were three purposes, were, there not, that influenced you; first . ■> eliminate competition, second to ob tain the best possible prices for you.' products, and then to reduce the cost of production?” "I think the third reason was what was in our minds primarily.” said Mr. Atkins. Admits Competition Was Killed. “Did you expect through this means to avoid some of the competition?” asked Chairman Hardwick. “Well, I suppose it had some effect of that kind." The witness said that seventeen re fineries joined in this merger in 1887, which was arranged by H. O. Have meyer. Almost all of them, he said, had been doing business at an excessive cost and they were scattered through out New York, New Jersey, Massachu setts, Maine. Pennsylvania, Louisiana I and Missouri. __ .
