And Two Injured By a
Cavein Sunday
Roy Mugrow. 12 years old.
died under tons of sand, and two
other boys were rescued Sunday
morning only by tho work of a
man and a woman who rapidly
dug with bare huiuw in the nam
of a cut of the 0. W. 11. nnd N.
Company near the Cochran farm
ut North at. Johns. Tho tragedy
was due to the caving in of the
roof of a 'robbers' den four boys
hud dug in the sand.
The Magrew boy, Olin Haynes,
lii years old, son ol U. b. Haynes,
of 8311 North Leonard street:
01 in's little brother, Albert, and
Clarence Ford, the 15 year old son
of G. W. Ford, of 837 North
Leonard street, dug tho cave.
. They Intended to play "robber"
Mind incidentally to shelter them--selves
from u misty rain which
was falling.
Albert Haynes, the youngest
of the four, was outside when he
heard the sand cave in. He
turned about to find Ills play
mates buried. For five minutes
he tried with his hands to dig
thorn out. Then he ran to the top
of the lull and called Mr. and
Mrs. Robert Hoslowski, who
live at 1022 North Edison street.
They did not understand his
oxeitcd words, but ran with
him to the cavein. There the
boy mad j them understand, and
they started to dig with their
hands. The first boy uncovered
was Clarence Ford, whoso face
was black and who almost iiad
ceased breathing.
With tho little Haynes boy
crying at his shoulder that the
lad found was not his brother
and that his brother was still in
tho drift, Mr. and Mrs. Rostowski over tho Ford boy until
ho revived. '"
In the meantime the little
Haynes boy had uncovered a part
of his brother's clothing, and all
three dug him out. He was
severely bruised about tho back
and was unable to stand.
He was taken home, and Mr.
and Mrs. Hostowski hurried up
the hill and got 0. Larson of
1010 North Edison streot to
bring two shovels to the scene.
With tht'so they searched for Roy
Mngrew, and finally uncovered
liiB body. Twenty minutes had
passed Wore it was found.
The boy evidently had died a
few seconds after lie was buried,
for his mouth was open and filled
with sand. Tho Postowkis and
others who had gathered tried in
vain to restoro respiration. Tho
body was taken to the homo of
John Messner, near by, and later
was taken to tho undertaking
establishment of Dunning and
McEntee, Portland, by what is
said to bo an arbitrary order
without tho consent of tho par
ents, Tho body was later re
moved to Blackburn's Undertak
ing Parlors here, where tho fu
neral took place Tuesday morn
ing at 11 o'clock; interment in
Columbia cemetery.
The parents of the dead boy
are in destitute circumstances
and a subscription paper was
circulated and funds raised to
pay the funeral expenses.
W. R. C. Progressing
The Gen. Compson W. R. C.
of St. Johns was organized in
October, 190G, with just enough
members to fill tho chairs, and
for several years it just barely
existed, but is now in a very se
cure position - - Soventy-three
members whoso ambition is to
help the old soldiers and make
them a little happier while they
live, aiuhlook after their families
when they are gone.
The last year has been an un
usually" harmonious one. All
business meetings have been well
attended and the semi-monthly
socials have united the members
closer in the bonds of friendship.
Their birthday parties have been
especially enjoyable ; that of their
adopted child, James Chaney,
surpassing all previous occasions.
James, though ony four years
old, realizes that he is not only
loved for his mother's sake, but
for his own sake.
The first regular meeting the
first Saturday in December is
election day, and it is hoped that
every member will be present
and vote for the ones they think
will make the best officers.

Tho now public library build

by M. L. Holbrook, the money
for construction came from the
Carnegie fund, nnd it will bo
maintained by the county of

the front entrance, which is a
particularly largo, well lighted
and attractively finished room,
is devoted to the library and li

Interesting Discussion by
John N. Edlefsen
Th i following address on the
most momentous subject of the
day, the currency question, was
delivered by J. N. Edlefsen of
tho Peninsula National Bank be
fore tho Commercial ,Club at its
monthly meeting on Wednesday
levelling. Mr. Udioison goes
'deep into tho subject and dis
cusses it in its various phases in
a logical, concise and instruc
I tivo manner. It shows earnest
thought and nroioumi study on
the part of tho speaker, and im
parts a volume of information
on this important subject that
should be carefully read and
deeply appreciated by every
citizen. It follows:
I Mr. President and members of
tho Commercial Club:
In my address tonight 1 am
supposed to talk to you on the
proposed Currency Bill which
has already passed the House,
and is now under consideration
in the Senate.
Undoubtedly you have all fol
lowed the press reports and know
more or less about this question;
at least you will know that the
bankers of this country aro try
ing to get hold of all the loose
etirrency. so that the people will
have none at all. This is also
according to some press reports
and some politicians, but rather
deviating from the truth.
1 shall endeavor to present to
you a few facts in as clear a man
ner as possible, so you may un
derstand more fully the underly
ing principles of currency re
form. The subject ifl, however,
of such magnitude and of such
economic importance, that I do
not Jeel able to do full justice to
Banfo. 'Some 6f our biggest men
in brains and finance have
studied this problem for years,
and have written books on it. A
few years ago a monetary com
mission wnsfcreatcd by Congress.
This Commssion studied banking
conditions at home and also the
methods of banking of tho lead
ing countries of Europe, and I
understand they have written in
tho neighborhood of 30 volumes
on lliis subject, and nut of their
findings the nv.'ch talked of Aid
rich plan was born.
For your pacification I will
state that 1 have not written as
many volumes for fear tho read
ing of them would tiro you.
When wo speak of Curroncy, tho
first question we are apt to ask
oursolves is what is Currency?
Webster s definition is as fol
lows: "Currency is that which
is in circulation. or is given and
taken as having value, or as rep.
resenting value."
You will observe that Curroncy
may have value in itself, as il
lustrated by our gold coin or may
only represont value, as is illus
trated by our Gold Certificates
and bank notes.
Our Currency consists of tho
following things:
First: Gold Coin, which is
generally accepted and has actual
Second: Gold Certificates,
which aro generally acceptod,
but have no actual value.
Third: All subsidiary coins,'
including tho silver dollar.
Fourth: Silver Certificates.
Fifth: United States notes.
Sixth: National Bank notes.
The foregoing is our currency
system and it has been pro
nounced the poorest currency
system in the world, if you in
clude the leading commercial
In round figures the United
States has one billion eight hun
dred million in gold; seven hun
dred ten million in silver pieces;
three hundred fifty million U. S.
notes; seven hundred fifty mil
lion in National Bank notes. I
shall refer later on to the Na
tional Bank notes more particu
larly. The chief fault which has been
found with our banking and cur
rency system is that in times of
stringency, caused either by un
usual activities in commercial
and industrial life and heavy
crops as well as in times of a
depression, it has been too
rigid and not elastic so it would
expand and' contract with tho
activities of the country. This
has frequently been demonstrat
ed and not later than during the
year of 1907.
There are in the United States
about 25, 000 banks, National and
State combined. According to
their location they are required
by law to carry a certain per cent
of their deposits in their vaults,
and with approved reserve
Tho National Bank Act re
quires that National Banks, lo
cated in reserve cities, shall
carry 2o per cent, and banks lo
cated outside such cities shall
carry 15 per cent in cash against
their demand ob titrations.
In most of the states the State
Banks have a very sum bar roiru
lation. You will clearly see tiiat

Banks you will have 25,000 re
In times of unusual aclivity in
4;i icuiLiuv, cuiumurciiii unci in
dustrial life, it has been found
till III M . t
mat tne credit ot tho country is
being severely strained and the
demands for sucli credits at the
banks is far greater than they
win uipiy, owing to inu rigidly
of our bank reserves.
Or, let us say a time of de
pression or re-adjustment come
along, people losing confidence
and wanting their money; we
have another side of it. Per
haps in some locality the strain
on some banks in so great that
their reserves aro exhausted, so
that they will either have to call
in their loans in which event
the situation only grows worse
in that particular locality-or
else sell sonic of its assets to other
banks in order to satisfy the de
mands of its depositors, or else
close its doors. Now that in
stitution may be absolutely sound
and still be forced to suspend
business, and consequently have
a deadening effect on the busi
ness in general in the community,
all by reason of our banking
laws. Where such a condition
arises in a local community, a
well managed and sound bank
can usually obtain all necessary
help from its correspondent
banks, but in time of universal
depression or high activity near
ly all the banks in tho country
are protecting their own ends, as
for instance, in the year of 1907.
During such a time you will find
that every bank in the country
is not only trying to maintain
its legal reserve, but to build it
up and fortify itself, so to speak,
and when 25,000 banks all prac
tically do the same thing, caus
ing by so doing a contraction in
credit instead of expansion, it
is not difficult to figure out the
effect it will have on the bus
iness of tho country.
i wish to state right here that
believe, taking the banks as a
body, they have done their 'it-
most in complying with the de
mands made and to preserve the
business of the country, but thoy
can only go so far, for thoro is a
limit. They must, under tho
law, keep so much cash on hand,
come what may. If they do not,
they stand a good chance of hav
ing their charters forfeited.
ihoro you have tho spoctac e of
25,000 banks in tho country hold-
ing millions ot gold in their
vaults, lying there absolutely
useless and dormant, and the
country in tho moantimo crying
for holp, You havo a very simi

Tho same condition prevails in
tho South during tho cotton
season, or in the corn bolt states
during tho corn harvest. Horo
it is where a true bank note and
an elastic currency systom could
make itself useful, and here it is
where a mobilization of bank
reserves would work wonder.
Supposing we had a Central

convenience sake, supposing
all the banks, or a majority of
them, had a part of their re

would it not pile up an immonso

a fund of over $700,000,000, in

did not quite understand what

that what tho commission desir

Currency Committee.
Ihoro seems to lie an impres
sion among a good many people
that tho banks of the country are
strenuously opposing this bill,
and I want to say riglit here, they
are not. As n body they are
favoring it. In fact, they have
kept this question before the
public and various administra

legislation is being considered
at this time. But while we are
making Curroncy laws the bank
ers are deeply interested that we
receive a workable system, some
thing which experience has
shown us we must have, some
thing which other great nations
have used for many years, and
aro using today. There are some
features in the House bill which
are considered unsound and un
scientific, and which business
men, bankers and thinking peo
ple in general wish to huve rec
tified before the bill becomes a
law. For my part, 1 want to say
that if the lull should become a
law as it stands today, although
there is no likelihood that it
will, I would consider it a great
improvement over our present
system, but I also believe, since
wo aro about to make a new cur
roncy law, lot us have the best
that can possibly be had. You
are, no doubt, more or less fami
lar witli the provisions of the
House Bill. Some of the import
ant features which are: The
creation of 12 Federal reserve
banks to be located in different
cities of tho country, not to
have a capital of less than
$5,000,000 each, which shall be
furnished by the National banks
of a given district up to 20 per
cent of their paid-in capital, ten
per cent of which to be paid as
soon as tho law is in effect.
Every Federal reserve bank shall
be organized and conducted under
tho oversight and control of a
board of directors, consisting of
nine members and divided into
three classes- A, B and C.
Class A shall consist of throe
members, who shall be chosen
by the stock holding bunks.
Class B shall consist of three
members who shall boreprosont
ativo of the industrial and ag
ricultural interests of tho reserve
Class C shall consist of three
members who shall be designated

Of this board I shall speak later.

expenses, etc., have boon paid,
and thoy may receive loss. All
excess earnings shall go into

equal to 20 per cent of the paid

excess goes to the Government.

sorve bank carry no voting pow

the paper thus eligible for dis
count. There are various other pro
visions as to rediscounts, in a
way guarding against inllation,
but lime will not permit me to
go too much into details.
The bill provides, further, for
the refunding of two per cent
bonds, which the National Banks
now hold, for three per cent bonds
within 20 yelp's, in which timu
the National Bank notes shall bo
entirely eliminated.
All member banks shall carry

The most imixirtant feature of
tliis bill, however, is the crea

will include the Secretary of the

other words, the so owners of
the Federal Reserve Bank, from
the right of representation, nr
excluded from any iwrticipation
in tho deliberations of the
Board. This is regarded at a
moat revolutionary measure and
apt to place the whole system
of banking under the control of
a political board.
1 have no fear that none but
high class men of knowledge ami
honor will be appointed to these
o:Tices, but nevertheless the dsn
ger exists, and it looks to mo
like a big railway system em

of its departments and deli her-
atoly excluding experienced rail

may be very able in their linos
in which thoy have experience

cannot conceive, however, how
such a railway system could b
very successful, even though
thoy were permitted to have one
real railway man amongst them.
