AMERICAN BANKERS ASSOCIA
TION ASSET CURRENCY
Commoner readers will hear much
during the next sessioir of' con
cress Of tho nHSAf mirrnnnv.nlon o1n
ted by the American Bankers
-association in session, at Atlantic
City in September, 1907. The pla,n
was presented by A. B, Hepburn,
president of the "currency commis
sion" which had been appointed by
the association. The report as pre
sented by Mr. Hepburn was adopted
unanimously and tho commission was
continued in existence and instruct
ed to use every effort to have con
gress adopt the plan agreed upon.
The report as made by Mr. Hepburn
agree upon the following principles,
which they believe underlie a correct
solution of the currency problem so
far as it relates to the issue of a bank
"A credit currency should bo is
sued by the national banks of the
country under proper restrictions.
"A bank note is essentially the
same in principle as a deposit pay
able on demand. It is a book deposit
converted into such form that it
passes current. It resembles in
character a demand certificate of de
posit or cashier's check simply a
current deposit liability of the bank.
"It is important in any plan seek
ing to provide a more flexible cur
rency that no measure should be
taken which would impair the mar
ket value of the United States bonds.
"Authority to issue " credit notes
under the same regulations should
be extended alike to all national
banks, but should not be extended to
any national bank until it has been
actively doing business for one year,
nor to any national bank which has
not a surplus equal to twenty per
cent of its capital.
"Credit notes should be taxed at a
rate which will produce a guaranty
fund sufficient to redeem the notes
of failed banks. Such guaranty
rund snould be deposited with the
government and out of it the gov
ernment should promptly redeem the
notes of failed banks.
"Banks should keep the same .re
serves against credit notes outstand
ing as are now reauired bv law
"Active daily redemption of credit
currency is the proper and only
means or making it elastic, prevent
ing redundancy and automatically
adjusting its volume to the actual re
quirements of commerce. All banks
issuing such notes should be required
to maintain adequate facilities for
their prompt redemntion in cities
conveniently located in all sections
or me country, so that all notes is
sued, however widely they circulate
can at no time get beyond a reason
able distance from a redemption city.
. "We therefore unanimously recom
mend the enactment into law of the
following, having the firm convic
tion that thereby will be provided a
bank note currency safe beyond per
adventure and automatically varying"
in volume as the needs of commerce
" 'First. Any national bank hav
ing been actively doing business for
one year and having a surplus fund
equal to twenty per cent of its capi
tal shall have authority to issue
credit notes as follows, subject to
the rules and regulations to be de
termined by the comptroller of the
" ' (a) An amount equal to forty
per cent of its bond-secured circula
tion, but not to exceed twenty-five
per cent of its capital, subject to a
tax at the rate of two and a half per
cent per annum upon the average
amount outstanding. Provided that
if at any time in the future the pres
ent proportion of the total outstand
ing unmatured United States bonds
to the total capitalization of all going
national banks shall diminish h.
the authorized' issue of credit natea
snaii oe increased to a correspond
ingly greater percentage of its bond
" ' (b) A fuf ther amount equal to
twelve and one-half per cent of its
capital, subject to a tax" at the rate
of five per cent per annum upon the
average amount outstanding in ex
cess of the amount first mentioned.
The total of credit notes and
bond-secured notes 'shall not exceed

be carried against credit notes as are
