and has left nothing to hinder one of the
grandest fireworks OlHplays ever given In

the barkers and animals and the freaks
will be ready for the rush of the coming

best, especially so when the show I placed
on the lot of a big carnival like the Ak-Sar-Ben
fall festivities. When the crowds
begin to come It is one continuous grind
from morning till midnight with but a
moment to grab a aandw-lch for lunch.
Even th,e big elephant tires of going
through his stunt a dosen time a day. The
principal stunt the elephant dislikes Is one
which the general publlo docs not see. The
big "bull" delights In covering himself
with hay and dust. Before entering the

down and have the dust awept off his hack.

equitable feature of thla system and come
to the question whether It will really help
matters. It Is permlSHlble under the na
tional banking act for banks to organize
with a capital of $25,0W. The security
which banks offer the depositors-depends
upon the amount of capital, the amount of
surplus and public confidence In the offi
cers of the Institution. I'nder the proposed
system the depositors In a bank with a
capital of $.,5.000 and no surplus, and with
officers of little experience and Indifferent
reputations can offer the public exactly
the same security for the payment of de
posits as a bank with a capital of J 500. 000, a
surplus of U50.000 and with officer known
to be honest and able. Depositors there
fore Insofar as security of deposits Is con
cerned are as likely to make their deposit
In th $25,000 bank as In the bank with the
capital of $600,000.
Limitation of luterat.
"It is proposed to Introduce Into the law
a limitation a to the amount of Interest
which under the system can be offered
and paid on deposits. This It Is said will
prevent banks from offering excessive rates
of Interest to obtain deposits. A limitation
of thl ort I difficult to fix because con
dition vary so much In different parts of
the country. That which would be high
Interest In one part of the country would
be low In another, and that which would
be high Interest at one season and under
leuain conditions would be low at anothel
time. ' Hence whatever limitation I Im
posed except when the normal Interest 1
highest, there must always be an oppor-
tunny ior i none inviting aeposils to pay
a nigner rate than that which conserva
tive bankers would pay.
"If the losses were limited to one-twenty-alxth
of 1 per cent the amount of the tax
on the deposit of course would be small,
and each bank could readily pay It, al
though the principal would be an entire
departure from equity; but the effect of a
guaranty system on th character of bank
ing would be such that the losses arising
from recklessness would greatly Increase,
and the tax must Increase to meet the
lotmes on every bank In propbrtlon. In
stead of loss equal to one-twenty-sixth of
1 per cent annually It would rapidly In
crease In every financial stringency. Two
objections are made to the conclusion that
an enforced guaranty system would lead to
reckleaeness and disaster in banking. One
Is that the government examination would
prevent, and the other la that it is an In
sult to the banking community to assume
that the national bankera of this country,
In view of their present high character,
would yield to the temptation to reckless
ness presented by the system. I answer to
the first objection that the government ex
aminations do not now prevent bank from
falling; that It Is difficult for a bank ex
aminer to discover the unwlsu recklessness
ana speculative loans, and then the vll
untary feature of the Kansas proposal that
make the radical difference between It and
that of the democratic platform. It I en
tlrely conceivable that bank In the tame
neighborhood and within the observation
of each other may profitably and safely
accept and guaranty the security of all
for the benefit of each, especially when
they can select their partners.
"One of the great merits claimed for the
enforced guaranty of deposits Is that It
will prevent panics. It Is sufficient to say
that the plan proposed cannot prevent
panics. A panic is not y stayed by the
promise' that money will ultimately be
forthcoming. It can only be stayed by the
production of the money Itself. When a
financial stringency I on, It la the caBh
the man needs, and to say that he will get
It next week certainly doe not assist him.
No ono who ha heard that hla bank I
going to fall will delay In Immediately ap
plying for his money becaniae he I assured
that at some time In the future he will
get It. Therefore the system could not
slay the panic unless the fund were large
enough to enable the banks to pay ah
their depositors at tho time of the run.
whereas the national banks are prevented
from o doing. The difference la the busi
ness, and the tlelng up of assets between
the system I radical. It would be Im
possible to bring In the state bank without
making the supervision of them as strict
as on the national banks, and If that super
vision Is to be strict. It must be under na
tional auspices, and therefore In effect,
they must become national banks. Thla
will entirely destroy the system of state
banks, and will Introduce Into the national
banking sjsterb trust companies and sav
aeat ton of Kqalty.
"Mr. Bryan ay that as the government
has security why should not the individual
depositor have aecurlty. The government
usually has a large fund. The law requires
that It exact security for It deposits. It
Is so large a fund that the banks can af
ford to give food security to obtain It. It Is
to be observed however, that the security
given to the government Is the security of
the hanks which get the deposits and not
the security of every other bs.nk In the com
munity. If; as between the banker and his
depositor, the deposit I of sufficient bene
fit to make It an object to the bank to give
security that is one thing; but to require
every other bank to give aecurity to that
depositor Is an entirely different thing. I
understand tliat In Oklahoma under this
very law which Is proposed to make na
tional, bond are exacted by the state and
county from the secured banks to protect
the public deposits.
"I think I have shown that the tendency
of the system proposed would bo to destroy
the high character of the present bank
ing. This Is not, however, to be taken a
an argument that the security of depoetta
Is not a good thing, and Is not to be brought
bout as fully and perfectly a possible.
It I only to how that the method here
suggested Is a plausible but sophistical
method that will not accomplish the pur-i
pose, but will ultimately Increase the losses
from bank failures.
Oklahoma Daak Deposit.
"The case of Oklahoma h been cited
an Instance to Justify the democratic
platform. The system ha been In opera
tion only since March of thla year. No
panic or other financial disturbance has
teated it efficiency. The statement Is
made that the public ha so much con
fidence In the banks that the deposits In
th unsecured bank are running down and
the deposits In the secured bnk are run
ning up. II my correspondent in Okla
homa can be credited, thl Increase of de
posits waa due to the fact that $3,000,000 of
Itu state money received from tha govern
ment for public school land wa removed
from the national banks and put in . the

"The postal savings bank system ha a
guaranty by the government under cir
cumstances which Justify It, because It re
ceives and husband the deposits. Thl
guaranty will, of course, attract deposit,
but the Interest fund Is so low that the
usual customers of savings bank will not
be drawn away, as experience In all other
countries shows. The democratic platform
proposes, if the guaranty system cannot
be put Into force, to then adopt the postal
wivlngs bank, a If the guaranty iystem
supplied the means met by the postal aav

enforced guaranty system will supply what
