firrr Dond Provisions,
The new provision for the refunding
of the government 2 per cent bonds and
the retirement of the present national
currency is as follows:
National banks may make application
to the treasurer of the United States to
have their bonds sold at per and ac
crued Interest. The treasurer will pre
pare a list of all such applications and
furnish it to the federal reserve board.
The latter may compel the regional re
rerve banks to purchase annually a total
of not more than $25,0000) of these

Provision for Klnntlctty.
The new law will make little direct
chango In the operation of tho present
national banks, except to allow them to
loan a certain amount of their funds
upon farm mortgages. Its chief purpose
Is to add a new pleco of machinery to
tho banking system that "will tako up
the slack" during business changes of
each year; that will give tho banks a
placa to quickly convert their assetB Into
cash In tlmo of need, and that will bring
out new federal currency when It Is
needed and retire It when money be
Banks are now required to keep a cor
tnln perccntago of their deposits na-"reserves,"
part In cash In their own vaults
and part of which may be rcdeposltcd
In tho banks of Now York, Chicago, St.
Louh and other designated cities. In
times of sudden financial demands when
banks have loaned up to the full limit
of their resources, these reserves furnish
little relief, because If they arc paid out
to meet demands tho banks are left In
a precarious condition.
The basic prlnclplo of the new law Is
to get theso reserve funds out Into cir
culation when necessary without lessen
ing the safety of any bank; and to pro
vide a placo to which local banks may
rush in a crisis and get cash for tho
"prlmo commercial paper" they hold In
Heaervolrs of Heserves.
This is to bo accomplished through a
chain of regional reserve banks or "re
servoirs or reservees" In which all banks
shall deposit a stated part of the money
they nre required to hold as reserves.
Under the new system when a financial
flurry comes the banks can take com
mercial paper. Vch as notes, drafts and
bills of exchange to theso "reservoirs"
and secure the use of their own reserves,
or It necessary, even tho reserve of othor
banks, by depositing this security.
The now regional banks will receive
about one-half of the bank reserves of
the country. They, in turn, will be per
mltted to loan back to tho banks all but
33 per cent ot these reserves, so that In
case of emergency, millions of cashcan
be brought out into circulation quickly.
Tho banks will have to pay for these
loans, however, as individuals have to
pay for a loan from any bank and this
charge Is expected to prevent the too
free use of the reserves held by tho
Xe.iv Form of Currency.
A now form of paper currency Is also
provided for to come out In case of
emergoncy nnd which is expected to go
back Into tho hands of tho government
when times aro normal. These "treasury
notes" will be printed by tho government
and Issued through each regional reserve
bank and will bear tho guarantee both
of the regional bank and the government.
If the demand for currency in any sec
tion of the country exceeds the HUpply
of circulating money, a regional hank
can secure this new money from the
government nnd put it into circulation;
but a gold reserve of 40 per cent nnd
commercial paper equal to the full value
of tho note must bo held as a reserve be
hind each note so issued. This provi
sion is expected to be the Influence that
will drive the new monoy back into re-
I tlrcmcnt when it Is no longer needed
The following analysis presents the de
tails of the new law without adhering
closely to the technical division or lan
guage of the measure.
At the head of the system will stand
a federal reserve board at Washington
appointed by the president and to con
sist of the secretary of the treasury, the
comptroller of tho currency and five
other members. Two of these shall
b expert bankers, but none shall have
banking affiliations or own bank stock
during their service. This board will
exercise general control over the entire
Selecting IteaerTe Cities.
The temporary "organization commit
tee" or the federal reserve board, will
select from eight to twelve cities where
regional reserve banks shall be located
and will divide the entire country
geographically with these cities as the
centers of districts. All national banks
In a district will be required to subscribe
for tho stock of tho regional reserve
banks In that district and to keep a por
tion of their reserves there.
Local bonks will be known oh "member
banks" because they will own the stock
of tho regional reserve bank of their dis
trict. Each member will bo required to
take capital stock of the regional re
serve bank, equal to 6 per cent of tho
member bank's capital and surplus. Tho
capital ot the regional bank will Increase
or decrease, so that It always represents
6 cr cent of the combined capital and
surplus of all the banks of the district
that have joined tho system.
Nat'onnl bnnks arc compelled to Join
and state banks arc permitted to If they
bring their reserve requirements up to
the standard ret for national banks and
submit to national examinations.
Piibll'- ownership of the stock of the
regional banks Is permitted only In case
enough banks do not join in any district

treasury, Tho remainder of tho net
cnrnlngs are to bo divided between the
payment of n United States franchise tax
nnd tho crentlon of n fund to guarantee
the payment of depositors In member
banks that may fall.
With the machinery thus created for a
new banking system that ts supplemen
tary to the commercial hanks of the
country, the law provides for a gradual
transfer of part ot the bank reserves to
these now "reservoir" banks. In order
not to disturb bustnch! conditions or to
withdraw .ton suddenly the lieavy de
posits ot country banks in the large cities
tho law provides that two years may be
consumed in shifting these balances, nnd
that, if necessary, part of tho reserves
transferred to tho regional banks may
consist of commercial paper.

every bank under the new law and tho
place whero It must bo kept is as fol

what should it be?
"Keeping everlastingly ut it brings, suc
cess," is tho motto of one of tho foremost ad
vertising agencies in America.
How much will it cost to make good this
motto depends uppu tho article to bo adver
tised, the possible extent of sales and tho cir
cumstances of competition and distribution.
Established businesses appropriate as
low as 3 per cent, and now ones as high as 8 or
10 per cent of tho grosa sales. The average is
about 5 per cent; seldom may it be less if ade
quate results aro to be obtained.
