OUTHRTE, Okl., Oct. 17. (Special.)
Everywhere the question Is being asked:
How Is the Oklahoma experiment In guar
anteed banking coming on? And it Is
undeniable there Is a widely prevailing Im
pression the scheme 1s a success.
The fart Is the bank guaranty law has
not been In operation long enough for any
definite . results. The state authorities
hsve made every possible effort to make
a showing In Its favor. Statements have
been given out claiming the state banks
have profited In a marked degree by a
transfer of deposits from national banks;
also that there was a noticeable movement
In deposits from adjoining states, attracted
to the guaranteed banks In Oklahoma;
llkemiso that there was an important move
ment out of the national banking system
into the state system.
At the date of the last statement of na
lonal banks for which returns are obtain
able. July 15. 1908, there were 30g national
banks In Oklahoma, with aggregate de
posits Of SM.820.9S9.
On the Same date there were 499 banks
operating under state charters, and their
aggregate deposits were $21. 216,526.96, show
ing that the national banks are still far
ahead of the state Institutions in volume
of business. Inquiry of the controller of
the currency elicits the fact that from
January 1, this year, up to the 10th of this
month, fourteen national banks tn Okla
homa have surrendered their charters, and
during the same time seven new national
banks have been organised In th state.
Between the statements of February IS
and July IS the national banks loat $1,621,
863 In deposits, and the state banks gained
13,184,243. These changes are accounted
for by several reasons.
Public Funds Manipulate!.
First, a manipulation of publlo funds.
The extent to which this has been done
cannot be told, as the atate authorities
are extremely secretive. That they have
done all they can cannot be doubted. The
following ia a copy of a letter sent out by
the state treasurer to national banks hold
ing state deposits:
State of Oklahoma, Treasurer' Office,
Guthrie. Gentlemen : After June 1 next
tnis department will not carry deposits of
state funda with any bank that has not
availed Itself of the benefit of the de
positors' guaranty fund. Yours very
truly. J. A. MENAFEE.
Second, by conversion of national banks
into the state system. For example, the
Enid National bank, with deposits of ap
proximately $T0O,COO. changed to the state
system, thus decreasing the total deposits
In national banks and Increasing those of
state banks by that amount.
Third, the withdrawal of actual cash
from tu national banks by atate author U
tie and Itaredepoait In state bank would
affect th ahowlng of deposits In the two
classes of Institutions by more than the
actual amount of money withdrawn. The
possession of actual cash by a bank en
ablea It to make loans, which In turn create
deposits. Thus, while the deposits of the
nnuonar Danjts in Oklahoma on July 15
were as given above, the cash holdings
were $12,344,949, or only about one-third the
amount; and any reduction in cash hold
ings necessitates a correspondingly greater
reduction In deposits.
!S"o l.ous In .Neighboring- States.
An extended Inquiry among bankera In
the states bordering on Oklahoma, notably
Kansas and Missouri, shows that while
iii-e canners were apprehensive at the
time the law waa passed that they would
lose business to their Oklahoma rivals, they
have recovered from their alarm, having
experienced no serious results. William E.
Otis, president of the Wlnfleld National
bank at Wlnfleld. Kan., makes the fol
"Our town is near the northern border
the state of Oklahoma and manv r.t
the politicians of Kansas were much ex
ercised last winter for fear all the de-
posits of Kansas would immediately be
transferred to the banks of Oklahoma. So
far as 1 know, our bank has not lost a
dollar In deposits to the Oklahoma banks,
and, on the contrary, we have several
parties In Oklahoma who are depositing
"I have made
considerable inutilrv of
bankers, as I have met them from lime
to time, who are located like ourselves,
near th border of Oklahoma, and I have
only heard of one deposit that has been
take out of th state on account of the
guarantee law, while I have heard of a
number of deposits coming from Oklahoma
to this bank already refarred to.
"I have alao taken paina to inquire of
parties from Oklahoma as to th effect of
the law upon the deposit of banks oper
ating under th provlalons of the law and
national banks In the same towns which
have not seen fit to take any action In the
matter. Where conditions are normal and
each bank has practically the same stand
ing in the community I find there has been
no change in deposits from tha unsecured
to the secured banks. This Is admltUd
oy in orricers of both Institutions.
"Ther are other localities hr. rnn.ii.
tlons are different. Where the state bank
has a better acquaintance, Is mo:e ssg.es
fctve, and orfers practically the same s :
curity In the way of capital and surplus,
the ante bank has made some gain. In
other localities where the national banks
ore the stronger and better managed the
reverse is the case.
Edaeatloaal ratnpalaa -Needed.
"The president of one of the national
banks in an Oklahoma town, near the
northern border, told me recently that his
bank ha J gained over $,O00 In deposits
since the law went into effect, while the
only state bank In the town had gained
about 10.090 In deposits.
"My opinion is that th majority of the
voters do not understand the question and
that If the republican party would Inaugu
ral a campaign of education almllar to
that of U the people would cess to
clamor for such a law. I waa located In
this place and waa an officer of this bank
In UM when Mr. Bryan waa advocating the
ire coinage or ativer at tha ratio of It
to 1. and I remember distinctly thst the
people were more insistent upon It than
they ar now upon th guarantee law and
that It was almost impossible to keep the
Kansas republicans from stampeding with

VICE PRESIDENT MAKES SPEECH
Large leathering; of Army and Other
Rotable Men of Indiana In. At
tendance Poem by James
INDIANAPOLIS, JnOA J7.-The cere-!
monies attending the unveiling of the
Benjamin Harrison monument this after
noon were preceded by a parade In which
all of the Grand Army of the Republic
posts of the city, numbering TOO men,
participated, aa well as 500 members of the
regular army, 600 National guard and 500
of fraternal orders. The speaker were
Vice President Fairbanks and General
John W. Noble, Mr. Harrison's secretary
of the Interior, and John V. Griffiths, the
Harrison biographer. James Whitcomb
Riley read a poem written for the occa
sion. The monument Is In University park,
facing New York street.
Miss Elizabeth Harrison's part tn the
exercises made the event unusually pretty.
Escorted by four members of her father's
regiment, the Seventieth Indiana, she
walked from the reviewing aland, on the
south side of the street, to the monument '
opposite. There she pulled the cord that
unveiled the figure of her father. The veils
were two flags, one representing the army
and the other the navy. The cord pulled
by the little girl drew the flags from
around the figure of the statue and sus
pended them, one on each side.
The company from the Tenth regiment
saluted with their guns. Then the veteran
acting as a guard of honor to the dnughter
drew the flags to the tall flag poles at
each side. The pole at the right bears tho
escutcheon of the army and that at the
left the insignia of the navy. This done,
the daughter and her escort returned to
the reviewing stand.
President Roosevelt sent a laurel wreath
and cut flowers, which were placed at the
base of the monument. Following the cere
monies, the wreath and ftowera were
placed on the grave of General Harrison
in Crown Hill cemetery.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 27. Inspector Gen
eral Garlington of the army. In a report
made public today, exonerated Chairman
Goethala of the Isthmian canal commission,
of the charge made by President Brothers
of the Balanced Crane Cable compaany of
New York, who claimed that unfair treat.
nient wts accorded him in the award for
furnhtahlng and erecting cable ways at
Gatun on the Isthmus. General Garlington
holds that there waa no collusion, that the
award was made In good faith, and recom
mends that the contract with the I.idger
wood company be proceeded with. The re
port was approved by the secretary of war.
The report says the device of the Broth
ers company was not suitable for work at
Gatun plant and there ws nothing adduced
In the Investigation to Indicate other move
than to put Brothers in touch with techni
cal scientific engineers who could probably
perfect the device so as to make It practic

LINCOLN. Oct. 27. (Special. -Bryanltea
are raining money by sending C. O. D.
packages to unsuspecting persons.
One man In Lincoln, John A. Scott, a
painter, has Just paid SI for a C. O. D.
package which came by express from Butte,
Mont. When opened it was discovered the
package contained a dozen or more neatly
printed pamphlets, containing a picture
of Mr. Bryan, some of his sayings and
the democratic platform.
Mr. Scott Is a democrat and Intended to
vote for Bryan. After having been flim
flammed out of the dollar he came out
for aft and Is now working against
Mr. Scott was notified yesterday that a
package was held at the express office
for htm and there was a charge of SI
against it. The package the agent said,
was from Butte, Mont. Mr. Scott knew a
friend who lived at Butt- and thinking
it was something he sent, he called a boy
and sent the II to the express office. When
he found he had bought green goods, Mr.
Scott became Justly Indignant.
"If the democrats are compelled to re
sort to such tricks to raise campaign
mor?y," he said, "I am through with that
party. I wus tor Bryan, but since I have
been done out of money on such a scheme
as that I shall certainly not vote for any
one who Is In anyway a beneficiary ot
audi n trick."
Across the top of the package In big
black letters were the words "C. O. D.
$1.00." Then In small letters were these
words, "Prepaid Allow examination." If
the package was refused It was lo be re
turned to Butte, Mont,
By sending out fakea from Butte, the
public could easily be deceived. No one
would connect Butte, Mont., with the dem
ocratic committee and naturally would not
suspect he was being held up In the in
tcrest of the candidacy of Mr. Bryan.
Mr. Scott Is not a wealthy man and
could not afford to lose the dollar which
was filched from him.
How many others have bit on the same
game and have helped out the Bryanltes
the same way no one around here, of
course knows, but It is probable the scheme
has been worked by the wholesale.
