CURRENCY ACT EXPLAINED
BY A LINCOLN BANKER
Doctor Hall Is Member of the Inaug-
In a talk on the new Currency Act,
Dr. P. L. Hall of tho Central National
Bank of this city, said: "The act is
an innovation in banking and ono of
tho most elaborate pieces of legisla
tion enacted for a long time." Al
though the bill is a model piece of
legislation, the bankers of the coun
try had very little hand In Its con
struction. Many of the prominent
bankers in the United States differ in
their interpretation of the bill, mainly
because of the different conditions In
tho various parts of the country.
Tho-Jnost Jmporiani Jfeature of the
talk was the emphasis placed on the
fact that acceptance paper must and
will, in all probability, be built up
under the new act. The packer's
paper, which haB heretofore been used
as a second reserve, Is six-months'
paper and of almost too long a time
to bo conveniently handled. Another
important step Is the fact that na
tional banks will bo able to act as ad
ministrators and handle receiverships.
Mnnv bankers fear that the federal
reserve banks will be dangerous com

an aid and a guidance to tho other
banks. Tho federal reserve banks
will pay no Interest on deposits, but
