ADVOCATES A CENTRAL BANK".
Former Director of Mint Addresses
Omaha, Sept. 20. George 15 nob-
oris, president of the Commercial Na

director of the mint, told the bankers
j Nebraska that a change in the mon

address was upon the subject of "A
Central Bank of Jsaue." It was the
big feature of Hie Recond day of the
Nebraska 'Bankers' association's elev
enlh annual convention.
Mr. Huberts did not assume to fore
cast any panic, but he said the great
danger of the present monetary sys
tem was that It left the United States
with no resources In the event of a
pnnlc. He did not say tho fact that
money becomes fight was special
cause for reform or remedy, but that
tho country comes every year prnctlc
ally to tho end of its resources. His
remedy wan to adopt the general plan
of the great foreign hanks, hut he
would not have the central bank in
tliis country In the general hanking
business. Ho would make it an insti
tution to do business for tho other
banks and, If there Is prejudice against
the word bank, call it a central agency.

In his brief filed In the federal court
here In resistance of the application
of the railroads for temporary in-1
junction agaliiBt the railroad commls-1
nlon's grain rates. Attorney General
Thompson set out that the fixing of
rates Is essentially legislative In Its
character and that the railroads are
trying to enjoin legislative discretion
in their fight against the new rates on
grain. The brief recites: "What the
railway commission may do in the
matter of fixing rates Is yet unknown
to themselves; whether they will fix
any rate In still unknown to them,
and until a rate is fixed the question
of reasonableness or unreasonableness
of the same is simply a hypothetical,
academic and mooted question. There
is, therefore, nothing to litigate."
The attorney general declared that
thenotice given to the railroads by
the commission relating to the grain
schedules did not Indicate that any
schedule had been determined upon.
He insisted that the commission had
dono nothing since it issued the no
tice that had breathed vitality Into the
Jiotice to give it the force and effect
of law or to furnish any basis for en
