About fifty bankers were prcs- cnt'at tbo opening of the morning session. It was shortly before 11 o'clock that the wtjrk of registering the visitors was com- pliilcd nnd President S. F. Smith of Davenport called the meeting to order. After a few rcin rks , Ilov. K. J. Habcock was Introduced and n.sdo the opening Invocation. Mayor Lawrence read an address of welcome In which ho dwelt nt some length on the history of the banking business from earliest times down to the present. First VIce President V. F. Nowcll of Des Molncs , responded In behalf of the delegates. He complimented the citizens on the beauty of the place. Then came the address of President S. F. Smith of Davenport.

Ho devoted Ills Saturday ufturnoon to the touching t'f music to u hand of .Sunday school children , uslnir such .SOUKS and hymns adapted to Ids purpose as ho could lay his hands on.

" .S til to of the Association. Secretary J. M.

There are twenty-two banks which failed to pay dues for l&U , and will bavo to bo dropped. Tbis leaves the mem bership at 277.

Scott of Cedar Ifapids , C. C. St. Clair of Algota , and G. M. Reynolds of DCS Moines. Ex-Governor William Larabco of Cler- niont was down for an address , but as ho was nnablo to bo present he sent his manu script , which was read by V. P. Nowcll. Tlio opening hours of the afternoon ses- uion was spent in listening to reports of special committees. The most interesting was the ono Riven in the form of a paper by Judge Wakelleld of the Sioux City district , on the subject of how to sectiro bettor pro tection for bankers against fraudulent commercial paper nnd the acts of criminals. Judge AVnkefiold hud sent out circulars to different bankers , asking .suggestions as to plans for accomplishing this purpose. His paper cqn- sistcd of a summary of the varied opinions thus gained. Among the suggestions thus | gained was ono that a fund bo created for the capture and conviction of such criminals. Another was that the notaries should DO moro careful In tlio Idcntillcatlon of ns making acknowledgments before them. Others , and they seemed in the ( majority , thought tbero was no practical plan , but that each for himself should view ! every man with such unchristianllko sus picion as to prevent his being taken In and that above all else ono should remember novcr to do business with strangers. Sug- gcstions were given as to care In thu issuance ance of commercial p.iper , so that it could not bo altered or forged. I.ucoy on the Circulating Medium. The llrst formal address of the afternoon was by Hon. E. S. Lacey , ox-comptroller of tlio currency , and now president of the Hankers National of Chicago. This was an exhaustive treatise on the suoject of "Our Circulating Medium ; Its Character and Volume ) . " Mr. Lacey handled the somewhat weighty topic trom a purely sclcntlllo standpoint in that clear ; , inclslvo manner which marked his ofllclal reports and the utterances on the topic ; heretofore given the public through the press of the country. Ills late oflicial posi tion brought him into clo.so relation with government's functional duties in regard to circulating medium , and ho gave the audlonco the essence of bis rich experience. "It is apparent that wo have ten varieties of coin and paper circulating as money , uo two of which aro-subject to the saino re quirements as to redumption , nor clothed with the saino legal tender and debt-paying qualities , " suld Mr. Lacy , after describing at some length thu various issues. "It is a matter of sincere congratulation that the discretion conferred upon the secretary of the treasury has heretofore been wisely ex orcised , because to this fact are \\o mainly indebted for the maintenance ) of the parity of these widely dissimilar and unsclcntitlo Issues. " This statement was followed by a categorical and critical analysis of the na tion's ilnanclal system , with a careful com mentary on the same and sapient sugges ; tions for improvement. "Grayo symptoms , now apparent , " ald he , "warn us that the ilnanclal affairs of the country nro anything but healthful. All the advocates of silver assert that Alla conspiracy exists for its demonetization , to the end that contraction may cnsuo and the interest of the bankers nnd money lenders i bo subserved. Aa a lifetime blmotallist , I have given this assertion care ful consideration , and candor compels mo to say the evidence adduced falls far short of establishing the truth. Helicf sllou b ° demanded from concrcss. " The speaker suggested the repeal of the act of July 14 , IbVK ) . All the gold coin in the United States treasury and national bank notes of the denomination of $5 and under slioujd bo returned und reissued in larger denominations , utilizing in place thereof silver coin and silver ccrtlllcates. Yntei ou the Double KtamUrU. Henry W. Yates of Oinaha , president i of tbo Nebraska National bank , was the ueit speaker , hli topic belnff "The Silver Ques tlor " Ho said ho agreed in the main with Mr. Lacy , but Instead of standing on a single | gold standard basts ho would discuss the financial situation on the theory of blmotallsm. Speaking ot the ox * port of gold ho said that this was not necessarily an occasion of alarm , but rather a sign of ft nation's Qi-ospcrity. provided that for the gold there were valuable commodities received as duo return ' , but If this outpouring of gold was due to distrust , It showed surely that some part of the financial system was defectives , lie deemed the silver question the main cannot of this financial disturbance. He de nounced the idea that the government added to the real value of money by Its fiat Its stamp was simply an assurance - suranco of the weight and fineness of the mstal In coin. The government had the constitutional right to regulate money , but not to make money. The govern ment should exercise this power of regula tion : In such a way ns to ensure a parity of value. Mr. Yatcs then proceeded to give an Interesting | esting historical review of the variations In the comparative value of gold and silver. To his mind much of the tllfllculty In Ilnanclal situations was duo to reckless disregard of tbo real relation In value of tin two metals , and nn attempt to maintain silver as an artlllclal rate. The repeal of the demonetization of silver shall have been accompanied by the establish ment of a silver standard of nt least IS to I , but the government attempted to arbltrarl- lly maintain tbo ratio of H ! to 1. Tills soon became the dearest market In the world for silver. The attempt was made to hold this ratio by tbo purchase of silver under the Sherman law , but although in 1S90 tbo purchases were Increased silver continued to fall. Another trouble was that thcro was no method by which the government could obtain gold with which to maintain the parity of gold and silver nt this rate. Ho showed by the statements : of the treasury that while tbo go reserve In 1870 amounted to 40 per cent of the liabilities , It had fallen gradually until lu IbOO It amounted to only 22 per cent , and had kept decreasing In proportion until that had fallen to 11 per cent. Could anything bo moro ridiculous thnn the government bclnc forced Into sell ing Its lands to secure gold when but a short time ace it was paying big premiums to re deem its bonds In order to dispose of the needless > surplus In Its treastfry ? Win Is tlio Slinrninn Law llcpcnled. lie advocated the repeal of 'bo Sherman law , unconditionally , If need be. But what would become of silver ? If necessary In order to maintain frco commercial Inter course with the world It should be left to Us fato. Ho was not , however , opposed to silver as money , but in its fa vor , believing tbat with n fail- ratio established , It would not suffer. Ho would open the mints to Its frco coinage , but on a ratio which would take silver at its minimum rate of value in comparison to gold. Ho suggested bow it might be made 2'i to 1. While It might not bo pr.tctlc.il to coin silver dollars containing 500 grains , yet by the Issuing of certificates redeemable In the bullion or in silver coin this frco coinage might bo assayed in a practical way. On tbo ratio of 25 to 1 the coin of this country would contain CO per cent moro silver than tbo French franc , and would bo circulated abroad as well as at homo. It was of utmost Import ance that silver shall bo maintained on a parity with gold as a .standard. This and the repeal of the Shot-man law would help clear up the financial muddles of the day. Dccmcr on Hunkers nnil the I'ub'.ic. Judge Dccmer served as an able substitute for Attorney General Stone , who was as- signed the B\ibject of "The Mutual Relations of Banners and the Public , " but who was detained in Des Moiues by cases in court. " Judge Dccmcr's address was ono of the most enjoyable of the day. Ho showed how banking was as ancient as tbo human race and as needful to society as breathing was to lifo. The relations of banking institutions and diffcrcntgovernments In times of great peril , and the help given In passlmr national crises was eloquently portrayed. The necessity for systems of credit economy and the help of banking In all the business of the world , were pictured in words which Indirectly formed a pleasing tribute to the assembled delegates. Throughout the address there was also a vein of humor and a sparkle of wit , which added grace and interest to the moro solid logic of bis thought. After the adjournment of the convention the delegates loaded a train ol three elec tric cars and were whirled over the entire line of the Council Bluffs and Omaha Motor company , getting by the airing an excellent appetite for supper. Reception nt tlio Grand. Last evening the convention took on a social nature , a reception bciiiK held at the Grand hotel. The dining room was taste fully decorated with ilowcrs. n table in the center of tbo room being piled full of palms and roses , which shed a rich fragrance throughout the room. Quito a number of ladles were present and an enjoyable even ing was spent , the visitors vibrating be tween tbo reception room and the lobby , as they saw lit. Today will close the convention , thcro being two sessions at the opera house , at 00 : ! ! a , m , and 2 p. in. The exercises will be oven inoro interesting that these of yester day. M. B.
