CONTINUE TO CLAIM TRACT
Anneke Jans' Heirs Still Confident
They Are Entitled to Trinity
Though the New York Stato Court
of Appcnls outlawed the Anneke Jans
heirs' claim to the Trinity church
trnct In New York city as long ago as
IS.'O, and again In 1881, the claim still
persists In the minds of some of Mrs.
Juiis' thousands of jescendnntB.
The vTfrT(lflS"IIHBli(TSii5"altncklng tlie
Trinity church title wero. all based on
technical irregularities In grants of
conveyances, such as the nbscace of
a seal or signature, or on allegations
that the grantors themselves had no
title. The defense has been adverse
possession nnd the statute of limita
tion. Tlie streets laid out by Trinity
Church corporation In the Jans tract
were named after leading men In tho
church Vesey, after Itev. William
Vesey, the rector; Barclay, after Itev.

By WALTER W. HEAD,
First Vice-President American Cank
Tho farmer today Is moro thnn n
tiller of tho soil. Ho Is a business
man. Raising crops Is only a part of
his business, If ho Is
a real uptodnto
farmer. Problems of
Hon and financing
nro euually Impor
tant. Tho complexity of
our modern eco
makes It nocessary
for tho farmer to
Walter W. Head
understand and assist in solving
theso problems if he Is to succeed.
In this now rolo as a buslnoss man
tho farmer Btoadlly has advanced
to a better position.
There was a tlmo when tho farmer
was dependent wholly upon prlvato
marketing agencies, whoso Interest
was not always identical with his own,
whose greed for profits somotlmes out
matched consideration of tho farmer's
need. Today there are many great
cooperative marketing organizations
that handle a largo part of tho farm
er's crop and win for him more liberal
treatment from tho prlvato agencies
which still haudlo tho bulk of his pro
duction. Today tho farmer nlso has his own
cooperative agencies of credit. If not
satisfied with the terms upon which
his local capitalist is willing to ad
vanco money upon a land mortgage,
tho farmor can go directly to tho Fed
eral Land Bank, which, by reason of
tax-exemption and other advantages
Incidental to Us governmental char
acter, can loan money at a rock-bottom
rate of Interest.
In addition, tho foderal government
has established another group ot
banks which permit the local bankers
by rediscount privileges to extend
the farmor credit for his current oper
ations on a moro favorablo baBls than
over beforo. If ho thinks his local
bank Is not sufficiently rcsponslvo to
bis need, this same legislation enables
him to join with other farmers In a
cooperative marketing association
and arrange for credit direct from tho
New Credit Facilities
For years It has bcon tho farmer's
complaint with considerable Justifica
tion that ho, alone of all producers,
has been forced to market his crop
on the buyer's terms becauso of bis
Inability to uso his products, In stor
age, as a baBls for credit. Today tho
agricultural credits act authorizes the
acceptance of warehouse receipts, on
non-perlnhqblo agricultural ,. products,
as collateral for loans, tho Bamo as la
tho case of sugar or other commodi
ties of commerce.
These developments havo rclioved
tho farmoi from what seemed to bo
persecution by short-sighted, tight-
fisted, grasping grain dunlors, land
lords and bankers for thoro were
somo bankers who worn guilty of this
very tllng, who thought ot the farm
er principally ns a weak and Ignorant
opponent in a gnmo whoso only stake
was tho collection ot a high rato ot
lntorost. Tho farmor's suspicion of tho
banker arose becauso of misunder
standing, bocause ho Judged hankers
as a class by tho derollctlons ot a few.
Today, with theso sources of government-controlled
credit avallablo at his
call, tho farmer cannot charge or oven
suspect that the bankers nro conspir
ing to do him harm.
As the real farmer has taken advan
tage of those opportunities, ho has
made himself a business man. Like
other successful business men, he is
equipped with crodlt to flnn'rico his
operations, ho is ahlo to mako uso ot
labor-saving machinery, ho Is ablo to
bartor with buyers ot his products as
In Kansas a group ot power and
tolcphono companies Is trying a com.
pulsory thrift plan, which affects
about 1,200 omplnyecs nnd applies to
ovory mombor of tho organization
from tho president to tho humblest
day laborer. The plan roqulroH that
each shall savo and Invest monthly
at least 10 per cent ot his Incomo.
Every month ench employee must
mako a report to tho general office of
how much ho has saved, and In what
ho has Invested It. Tho Investment
must bo approved by a committee
competent to advise. Government se
cudtlos, savings bank accounts, build
ing and loan stock, payment on a
homo, even pnymonts on furniture aro
allowed. If debts have been Incurred,
theso must bo listed and payments
tuny bo arranged on them, but no
more aro to bo assumed. Tho Idea Is
to mako the employee llvo within his
menus and also :ay aside somcthlug
In a dullnlte form.
Reports for the first nine months
show that about 13 per cent of the
wages havo been saved, no single em
ployee fnllli,g below 10 per cent. This
amounts to over 5100.000. Failure to
roport or to savo brings dismissal, but

Would Create More Paper Money
Than Russia's Trillions But
Add No Real Wealth.
SOfJH DANGEROUS FALLACIES
Would Remove Safe Restraint of Gold
Basis nnd Open Way to Endless
Issues of Paper Money.
How tho United States would bo
Bwamped, under n greater volumo of
worthless paper monoy than has
ruined Germany and Russia, by tho
Edison-Ford commodity currency plan
is pointed out In tho present article,
concluding the rovlows, proparcd by
tho American Bankers Association,
of tho recent exposure of the folly of
I., i.ilinln onlinmn liv Wllllfim T. Fill, j
tor, Director of tho Pollack Founda
tion for Economic Research. Mr.
" 'Tho supply of money,' says Mr.
Ford, Ms Inadequate. Thero is moro
woalth than thoro Is monoy to movo
it.' Ho draws a vivid plcturo of 'tho
goldon dam to tho stream ot pros
perity.' From a hundred quarters
comes the demand for tho govern,
ment to speed up the printing pressos,
In order to crush 'tho money monopo
ly,' reduce Interest rates, and make
It oaslor for everybody to get monoy.
"Iullatlng tho currency, howovor,
though It enables people to get moro
units of currency, docs not enablo
them to obtnln moro purchasing
power, and It does not roduco interest
rates. In all her history Germany
never had so much money or ns high
Interest rates as in 1022. Money, un
like other forms of wealth, Is not
oaslor to obtain simply because tho
total supply is Increased. On the con
trary, Increasing tho supply of rtoney
ordinarily increases tho demand for
money, and Interest rates depend not
on Bupply but on the relation between
supply and demand.
A Dangerous Fallacy
"Wo are assured, however, that the
Ford-Edison plan provides money .for
the farmer at virtually n.o expanse to
the government or to anyone else.
All the government has to do la to
print tho monoy. What could be sim
pler? Here we come to the most dan
gerous fallacy in the whole project'
It la dangerous because of the uni
versal desire to get something for
"Hero Is the gist .of 'the matter?
Money will buy whatever Is produced,
not a particle moro by any trjck Of
alchemy, or legislation, 'or' finance.

k"Soiuo of those' who got tho newly
printed money can buy more good's
than before; all other pooplo can buy
fewer good than before, becauso their
money lu ,s fallen oft In purchasing
power. S tice thoro nro no morp

so on, to distribute, if some people,

"Inflation under tho Edison plan Is
limited mainly becauso, on account of
Its Indefcnslblo discrimination, most
groups of producers of goods and
sorvlces nro not allowed to partici
pate. If all groups woro Included, as
in fairness and in politics they would
have to bo eventually, the poslbllltles
of Inflation would bo vast.
The Deadly Spiral
"Tho total Income of the United
States Is now in excess of fifty bil
lions ot dollars. The total money in
circulation, Including bank deposits
subject to check, is not far from
twenty-five billions. It follows that
tho annual production, if used as a
basis for jiew Issues on tho Edison
plan, could at once greatly Increase
tho volume of money in circulation.
Every addition to tho monotary supply
would tend to ralso prices. Tho higher
prices became, tho higher would be
tho loan value ot a given volume of
goods since tho size ot tho loans Is
based on values and not volume. The
greater, thorefore, would bo the vol
umo of new money that could bo Is
sued on the basis ot a given annual
production. Prices would become still
hlghor; and so on up an endless

printing presses hold tho world's rec
ord for volumo, whore now Issues of
two hundred trillions ot rubles per
month stagger tho Imagination, the
people complain that 'thoro Is not
enough money to do business with.'
Without tho arbitrary rostraint ot the
gold basis, and with Muscle Shoals

of Inflationists constantly pressing
their claims mon Congress, It Is not
at all certain that tho United Statos,
