That a great many of the national
banks In the country will withdraw from
the national banking system and stop
under the state banking system, now that
the federal curronoy bill has passed both
houses and Is likely to become law In a
short time, Is tho opinion of F. IL
Davis, vlco president of the First Na
tional bank of Omaha.
That they- will ''do no such thins," Is
the opinion of O. W. Wattles, vice pres
ident of the United States National; II.
W. Yates, president of tho Nebraska Na
tional, and Senator Joseph Millard, pres
ident of the Omaha National.
When the morning' papers stated that
the senate had passed the currency bill
with somo amendments, F. II. Davl9
aid: "It will now remain to be seen
whether the 'national names wm accept
the terms, L believe that a great many
of them will now orgnlze under the state
banking system rather' than to accept
the provisions of the currency bill In
doing a national banking business. In
fact, I believe a great many of the na
tional banks through Iowa, Nebraska
and Kansas nro already preparing to get
Under tho state banking system."
Some Amendments Faroratile,
Mr. Davis believes there are some
amendments that are favorable to the
bankers of tho west, for ozample the
provision extending the time to 180 days
pn rediscount paper. He said ho fett the
bill was much better than when it first
camo from tho house, although It was
yet far from a perffcet bill. "Tho interest

HITCHCOCK YOTES FOR BILL
Goes with His Party When Final
Test is Made.
MORE INTERESTED OTHERWISE
Alt Ilia Demands and Amendment
Were Blade vrlth neadlneM
to Vote rrlth Tarty at
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, Dec SO. (Special Tele-
c gram) Senator Hitchcock yesterday Jus
tified his position in behalf of the bankers
of the United States and especially the
bankers of Nebraska, by voting for an
amended currency bill which passed the
senate by a vote of H to 34, nls colleague.
Senator Norrls. finding it as easy to vots
for the measure as the Omaha senator.
Senator Hitchcock defended his vote,
which up to an hour before final action
was taken many people had supposed
would be against the bill, by the follow-
I have moved to substitute for the
Owon bill, as it has been amended, the
bill as reported by" tho section of the
committee to which I belong, In order
that tho struggle of more than three
months may be drawn to an orderly close
by the final vote.
Atirnyn Intended VotlnR for Dill.
"When the record of that vote shall
have been made, we will have reached
the point at which I shall be compelled
to part company with some senators with
whom for months I have been closely co
operating. Some of them will vote against
ine diii upon us iinai passage, i biihii
vote for It. I have never for a momont
had any other purpose. My whole fight
has been to strengthen and improve the
bill and to prevent hasty and blundering
legislation. To attain any measure of
success I. found it necessary to go to ex
treme lengths and to make some sacri
fices. I feel Justified by the result as
'the bill originally Introduced has been
changed oyer 60 per cent in letter and
nearly as much in spirit.' "
AVhnt lie Claims.
Senator Hitchcock then pointed out a
number of changes that he declared he
and his republican colleagues had se
cured, among them being removing the
federal reserve board from "political
subservience," Insurance of bank de
posits, Jess disturbance of business inter
ests by the new bill, equal treatment of
member banks, better discount privileges
longer time farm loans, gold redemption
of treasury notes, increased gold reserves,
tax on deficiency In reserve banks and
the reduction of reserve banks from
twelve to eight
His committee, he said would have pre
ferred other changes, which he recited.
He said in conclusion:
'We have cause to congratulate the
country on what it has secured. I nm
glad the struggle is over. It has been
long and has resulted In a greatly Im
proved bill. I have my misgivings, of
course, as others, have. The prospect in
the United States is not altogether
bright There are clouds in the ky
Thoro may be dangers ahead. I Join
others, however, in hoping that the clouds
may be dissipated and the dangers
passed, and that this legislation may
contribute to that result"

A legal contest In which the relative

unexpected will, was officially opened In

WASHINGTON, Dec SO. The greatest

Next to the fact that all features

Deserters from the federal garrison at

Their number, it waa expected', would ag
Already -eleven officers have surrend
ered. Among them was Major B. Flg
ueroa, a member of the staff of General
Podro OJeda, federal commandant ut
Guaymas, and commander of the .cavalry
stationed at the gulf port.
The enlisted men appeared ln groups of
five and ten, dust covered and suffering
from want of water and food. Tho fed
eral officers here say that many havo
not reached the cqnstttutionallst lines and
are wandering-from ranch to ranch, or
are lost ln the mountains.
It was asserted that practically all of
the outposts placed about Guaymas by
the federal commander has deserted with
their arms and ammunition.
The developments since yesterday morn
ing were considered a death blow to the
Huerta government in the northwest,
marking the overthrow of General.Pedro
OJeda, whoso stubborn fighting along the
border and at Guaymas long has been n
menace to tho southward progress of
General Carranza'a forces.
Tenth Battalion Disarmed.
Deserters brought news of tho disarma
ment of the entire Tenth battalion of in
fantry numbering moro than COO men
These men were disarmed following thn
discovery ot a plot to desert In n body,
officers and men, to the insurgent side.
This is believed to have reduced the fed
eral garrison by one-half.
That General OJeda himself would ac
cept amnesty was Indicated by a report
reaching hero from Crux De Piedras, the
nearest point to Guaymas held by the In
surgents. Colonel P. Mender, command
ing the constitutionalists there, reported
the federal commander had sought an in
terview with him under the agreement
that each should leavo his base with an
equal number of men and meet on neutral
ground. Colonel Mendez said he had de
clined the offer, fearing a trap.
Garrison Completely Demoralised.
General Alfaro Obrcgon, commander ot
constitutionalist forces In the northwest,
remained here today. The federal officers
who arrived assisted in locating the
scattered groups of deserting federals.
The deserters did not constitute any one
command, Uie officers said, but came
from various regiments and battalions.
This was taken an an Indication of the
complete demoralization of the federal
