Th convention re-assembled promptly at

of meeting with you here today," he said.
"A public officer Is a public servant and

the best measure of courtesy, you give

Senator BurVett then gave a short his

especially such of them as he had not

Washing-ton Banker Condemns Meth

Plan Is Against Best Known Method

of Other Countries (iovern
aaent and Brekera.
CINCINNATI, O., June SP.-Before the
Ohio Bankers' association today, Milton
E. A lies, vice president of the Rlggs Na
tional Hank of Washington, spoke on the
financial system of the Vnlted States.
1'rlttrlsea Financial System,
Probably not since the day of Andrew
Jackson, Mr. Alles began, has the public
Interest In the relation of the government
and the banks been greater than during the
past year. Mr. Alios pointed out the
singular fact that while America was
quick to adopt modern methods in almost
every field of endeavor It had been slow
In working out a financial system that
would keep pace with the extraordinary
developments of the country; .that while
we here taught the old countries new
methods In arts' and Industries our Cur
rency and banking lews had remained
crude. "They do not belong to this era of
modern equipment; they belong to the days
of the ox-cart and the sail ship and have
no place In an age of electricity and steam."
Mr. Alles demonstrated how necessary It
is, under our present system for the sec
retary of the treasury to give occasional
assistance to the money market In order to
avert financial disaster. Every secretary
of the treasury, in the past thirty or forty
years, had been obliged to render such as
sistance. It was made necessary by reason
of the accumulation of revenues In the
vaults . of the government and the taking
out of the circulation Just so much money
as wss received by the government. Every
reason which sucli relief should be extended
existed, yet every secretary of the treas
ury, by giving the assistance, had sub
jected his assistance to political criticisms
from his opponents "and so long as we
maintain an Independent treasury, Into
which Is poured our surplus revenues,
necessitating subsequent distributions
among banks, so long will political op
ponents continue to inflame the public
Idle Money Cans af Disaster.
Mr. Alles said that the government sur
plus for the current year would amount to
between $8O,000,OUO and $s0,000,000 and that the
locking up of so vast a sum could not be
tolerated, as it would be followed by
financial dlsaslur. He suggested that the
collections be made through the banks,
withdrawing such amounts from the banks
as are needed to meet expenditures. By
thla plan the secretary of the treasury

system. Mr. Alles concluded:

actment of other laws we must do the best
we can under existing conditions. That the
