THE BA8I8 OF CIVILIZATION
Let us never forget that the
eultivatien of the earth la the
most important labor of man.
Man may be civilized in some
degree without great progress in
manufactures and with little
commerce with his distant neigh
bors. But without the cultivation
of the earth he is. In all coun
tries. a savage. Until he gives
up the chase, and fixes himself in
some place, and seeks a living
from tne earth, he is a roaming
barbarian. When tillage begins,
other arts follow. The farmers,
therefore, are the founders of

These are haunts the rover seeks.
Touch of tan upon his cheeks,

The proposed union of the Congre

churches In Canada, which was on
the verge of success, has been check
ed by the notion of the Ontario legis
lature, which has added to the en
abling act a clause preserving the
three chur lies as separate entitles
and permitting any Individual
churches that prefer to remain out
side the union to keep the property
owned by the parent organization.
That action has aroused a great deal
of feeling nmong the members of the
three churches, who resent the at

that it is a violent encroachment on
the freedom of the churches.

Use of Clearing House Inspectors i
Great Protection for Depositors
From Bulletin of American Bankers’ Association.
A positive protection for bank depositors has been found in |
the Clearing House Examiner System, Don A. Mullen, Secretary, i
Clearing House Section, American Bankers’ Association, told the
Conference on Audits and Examinations at the Annual Conven- J
tion of the American Institute of Banking in Baltimore a few days ,
The banks in thirty-four American cities have adopted this <
system of examination made by one examipcr appointed by all of ;
the banks in the Clearing House Association, Mr. Mullen said, and ,
fifteen more cities are expected to take favorable action in the
near future. “Since the inception of the Clearing House Exam- 1
iner System eighteen years ago in Chicago, no depositor of a
clearing house bank has ever lost a dollar,” Mr. Mullen declared,
describing the system as “one of the greatest safeguards ever
thrown around the banking situation of any city or community
where it is operative.”
“The chief duty of the clearing house examiner is to visit all
banks in the Clearing House Association once or more a year to
make surA that each member is in an absolutely solvent condi
tion,” Mr. Mullen stated. “The primary object of the Syatem,
however, is to insure community safety by means of demonstrat
ing and insuring the safety and solvency of each bank in the
clearing house community, for it has been frequently shown that
the failure of one weak bank will seriously involve an entire com
munity of good and strong banks. While national banks are sub
jected to semi-annual examination by the federal examiners and
the state authorities supervise the state banks and trust com
panies, each acts independently of the other and each knows the
condition only of those banks coming under his supervision. One
«et may be well supervised and safe, and the other may be poor
ly supervised and unsafe. There is no central control or central
authority to safeguard all, whereas the clearing house examiner su
pervises both sets—the state banks and trust companies and the na
tional banks as well, and knows the condition of the group under
“Banks are protected from customers over-extending them
selves through duplicate borrowing because the clearing house
examiner, through the Bureau of Credits which he operates in
connection with his department, has a record pf every sizeable
loan, whether they be direct or indirect, secured or unsecured.
The bank has the privilege to consult with the examiner at any
time in order to determine the total borrowings of any customer
and the number of baqks from which this customer has borrowed.
The name of the institutions making the loans are not revealed,
however. It is not possible to obtain this valuable information
from the state or federal examiners, as each department is a sep
Portrait of Do La Huerta.
B. J. Dillon, British Publicist, in Cur
rent History Magazine
Since the rebellion in Mexico,
launched by Adolfo de la Hueita last
winter, and now virtually extinct, was
built up wholly around personalitles,
it is historically important for the cor
rect understanding of the significance
of the movement to record the antece
dents and personal characteristios of
Its leaders. De la Huerta himself
was, for a brief while, the rebellion's
chief figurehead. As he had for a
few years worn the halo of financier,
statesman and patriot, the plotters de
cided to lure him Into their net and
to make the most of his titles to pub- .
lie esteem and confidence, which
De la Huerta frst attracted at
tention as governor of the State of
Sonora, in which capacity he seem
ingly played a considerable part in
the revolutionary movement which
upset the Carranza regime. The good
Impression thus made was confirmed
and Intensified when, after Carran
za’s death, he was raised to the digni
ty of Provisional President of the re
public. His principal feat while fn
this office was to bribe, at the na
tion’s cost the notorious Pancho Villa,
the Bcourge of Mexico and one of the
world's most fiendish criminals, to ab
stain from wantonly destroying Ilfs
and property. After this and during
the first three years of Obregon’a
presidency, de la Huerta discharged
the functions of finance minister and
concluded the celebrated convention
with the International Committee of
Bankers. And when, like a bolt from
the blue, the charges of gross malad
ministration made against him by
Senor Panl, and the support of these
charges by President Obregon, held
up de la Huerta to public obliquy,
people asked themselves how a man
with such a high record could over
night have fallen so low. De la Hu
erta’s friends attributed the charges
against him to envy, but facts were
soon revealed which exploded this
De la Huerta’s proper sphere of ac
tion was the realm of propaganda and
of all that propaganda implies. In this
domain he had no Mexican rival. His
methods were those of the European
belligerents during the World war,
perfected. Intensified and adapted to
his fellow-countrymen. Certain let
ters of his to friends—letters now
passing from hand to hand—exhorting
and tempting to betray their trust
and plunge the country into blood
shed and chaos for his sake reveal a
