for the regulation of banking- and cur
rency In the United States. Frank B.
Andorson. president of the Bank of
California, was the only out of ths

He aa'd that the panic of 1901 showed
the weakness of the present monetary
evstem and the need of a radical
chance along the llna planned by ex
Kenator Aldrlch. but he objected to the
recent proposal to give state banks
and trust companies equal beneflta with
the National banks In regard to the use
of the reserve fund.
This, he said, waa nnfalr to the Na
tional banks, whose business waa sub

banquet at the close of which Mr.
