The seventh annual state convention
opened this morning at the opera house ,
which ' was handsomely decorated with no-
tional colors. 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
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.
Itapldly and In pleasing phrases President
Smith sketched thd objects of tbo associa
tion In meeting annually , giving , in bis own
words , "simply nn Introductlon-liko music
before a bamiuct to ( bo solid food that Is in
store for you. " Ho told a number of amus
ing nnd instructive anecdotes , cacti having a
bearing near or remote on tbo banking busi
ness. Among them was tbo following :
"America" nnil Hunklnc.
All of yon know "AmnrloV and Hi well
known \\ords , "My Country , 'Tit of Thee , " etc.

iiKunclus which have blessed thesti United

knoHM composer of cliuich iniHlt- , about thu
yriir 1831 or 1 32 , wan cashier of the Colum
bian bunk In Iloston. His employment left him
the fruo usuof his afternoons for his outsldo
puisiilts. 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. Ho found Introduction to a young
divinity student , who , us he Imagined , had thu
Klft of malting hviiins and MJiigs peculiarly
helpful lu him In his work.

Hut Ins young student friend could. Accord-
io took the books to him with an appeal
nn to inak'u them available. In
ono of these hooks the student foil In
with the tune ot 'My Country 'TU of
Thee , ' nnd noticing that tbo words
III ( .icrinnn wciejDatilotlc. he proceeded to i
compose thn livinn known everywhere as i
'America. ' Mr. Mason llrst brought out ( his
hymn at a I'ourth of July colouration In Bos
ton In 1632 Hu Intoix'oiUd with the city KOV-
ornmrnt and the school committees to ndmlt
sln lii ns a required .service In the public
schools. What was done In lloston soon found
Us way everywhere , and the hymn bucamo a
nursu of that patriotism which , In thu
tlmo of our country's need , furnished
thu thousands of younx men who willingly
KUVO thumiOl\cs to tlionoblo serviceof lib

not been for Mr. Mason's Interest In chil
dren's music , doubtless the German music
book would not have reached the pyos of the

not have boon produced.

.S til to of the Association.
Secretary J. M. Dinwiddio of Cedar
Hapids submitted his annual report , In
which be stated that tbreo banks would
have to lie dropped from the list by their
own request. There are twenty-two banks
which failed to pay dues for l&U , and will
bavo to bo dropped. Tbis leaves the mem

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 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
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 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
