LAUD NEW SYSTEF,
With Centralization Days
Financial Panic Are Be
. lieved Thing of Past.
CURRENCY MORE ELASTIC
A. Jj. Mills Explains That No Direct
Result Will Be Noticed by Public
Individually, but That Moral
Effect WiU Be Good.
Portland bankers and brokers believe
that the new Federal banking system
Inaugurated yesterday will make
financial panics impossible and render
all branches of commercial activity
more sound and more stable.
The old, haunting fear that arose
very Fall when money was required
to move the grain crops and the
anxiety that was entertained every
time a heavy movement of other com
modities was due, will be dissipated. It
Is predicted, through the successful
operation of the new system.
The Federal reserve banks are ex
pected to provide elastic currency in
sufficient volume to meet all the
financial needs of the country In all
Bankers here as well as elsewhere
believe that the new currency system
will prove a panacea for virtually all
the financial Ills that have manifested
themselves in times of past strin
gencies. A. L. Mills, president or the Portland
Clearing-House Association, and presi
dent of the First National Bank, ex
plains, however, that so far as the re
lations of the public with the Individual
banks is concerned, there will be no
visible change. The public will continue
to do. business in the same old way
depositing money and receiving a speci
fied rate of Interest, and borrowing
money and paying a specified rate of
interest. The banks will be Just as
eager to receive deposits and will exer
cise just as much caution in making
New Confidence Expected
"The Federal reserve banks," says
Mr. Mills, "will be just what their
name Implies reserve ' banks. They
will give the member banks an oppor
tunity of discounting approved notes
and converting such assets into cash.
This cash, in return, can be used in dis
counting other notes of their customers.
Thus an endless succession of loans and
discounts is provided.
"But to my mind the principal benefit
of the new system will be the opera
tion of what you might call a form of
financial Christian Science. It will in
still new confidence into the business
world. It will afford a ground for such
confidence. After all it is confidence
that creates prosperity and lack of it
that creates depression.
-"We will have no more money and
no more resources after the new sys
tem gets to working than we have had
before. But we will have more con
fidence. I think that will go a long
way toward restoring prosperity."
Mr. Mills also explains that the pro
vision in the new law which permits
National banks to reduce their cash
reserve from 25 per cent to- 15 per cent
does not necessarily mean that this dif
ference of 10 per cent will be available
for immediate loans.
No Laxity to Be Expected.
"We have heard a lot about great
neaps of money being released be
cause the new law permits us to cut
down our reserves," he said, "but I
don't think there is a bank in Port
land or In the Northwest that is going
to relax any of its rules governing
loans. It always has been possible to
obtain loans on approved security and
I don't think the new arrangement will
make it any easier.
"The law gives- us a right to cut
down our reserve if we have to, but
I don't think any bank will cut down
to the. 15 per cent margin except in
case of extreme emergency."
Emery Olmstead, vice-president of
the Northwestern National, was optim
istic yesterday over the certain good
effects of the system.
"There Is no question about the re
lief it will afford the whole Pacific
Coast," he said.
"It will make Itself felt here in Port
land every year at the crop-moving
period. I think It will be a great help
to every line of business."
Mr. Olmstead believes that the govern
ors of the San Francisco reserve bank.
through which the Portland banks will
do business, should give their early at
tention to tne establishment of a
branch reserve bank in Portland. A
branch bank of this kind, presided over
by local people, he points out. would be
better able to pass upon paper offered
lor discount by local banks.
Mr. Crawford Enthusiastic.
E. G. Crawford, vice-president of the
Lumbermen s national, was likewise
enthusiastic over probable beneficial
"It simply provides the bankers of
the country with the relief that they
have been demanding for the last 30
years. They have needed a centralized
banking system. The Federal reserves
provide this. Heretofore we have been
operating as so many individual units."
' J. C. Ainsworth, president of the
, united states relational, and R. L. Dur
ham, president of the Merchants' Na
tional, are similarly optimistic They
believe that the country never will ex
perience another such financial canio.

The five National banks of Portland
are members of the Federal reserve
system. The state and private banks
can participate in its benefits by oper
ating through the' National banks.
The Portland banks have not yet
oeen caned upon to pay any share of
their reserve into the new bank, as the
law requires. They nave, however,
paid their initial Installment of the
capital stock required of them. This
payment, approximating XoO.oou. was

Withdrawal Father Comes.
SALEM, Or.. Nov. 16. (Special.)
A case of memory lapse was revealed
today when Superintendent Stelner, of
the State Insane Asylum, announced
that Henry Griesbach. Jr., 27 years
old, would be discharged from the In
stitution tomorrow. His father, Henry
Grfesbach, Srs a prominent stock
raiser, of Fort Benton, Mont, arrived
here today and will start with his
son for their home in a day or two.
Ihe young man is supposed to have
drawn J2530 from the Imperial Bank,
or Calgary, Canada, seven weeks ago,
and, with the exception of taking a
few drinks with strangers one even
ing, he remembers nothing. When he
was round half dead six weeks ago
on the bank of the river at Asloria,
his body partly submerged in the bay,
he was without a cent and he has not
the slightest idea c' what became of
his money. In fact he does not re
member drawing It from the bank,
but his father made an investigation
and found that he had. The parent
thinks his eon was drugged and robbed
soon alter he cashed the check.
When Griesbach was received at the
asylum his mind was a blank. He
talked wildly saying devils were trying
to rob and kill him. Gradually the
young man's reason returned, and two
weeks ago he was able to tell Su
perintendent Steiner his father's name
The young man declares he does not
remember receiving the money from
the Calgary bank, and, aside from
drinking with strangers, remembers
nothing until his reason returned after
he had been treated at the asylum.

Proposal Is to Transfer Large Part
of Treasury Coin and Most of
Government Money Now in
WASHINGTON, Nov. 16. Although
the 12 Federal reserve banks only be
gan business today, the Federal Re
serve Board already has before it
plans for widening the banks' field of
operations and Increasing the store of
The Board may not be willing to
draw any definite plans from one day's
business, but the first week may have
a material effect and may result in
augmenting the cash of the banks by
more than 1150,000,000. The Board has
under consideratiorothe deposit of a
large part of the loose cash now in
the treasury and the transfer of most
or the Government funds now deposit
ed in National banks.
Secretary McAdoo has power to make
these changes, but so far has not
reached a decision. If the first week's
rediscount business shows that the re
serve banks can use more cash, how
ever, the Board probably" will suggest
the adoption of the plan. It has been
reported to the Board that there Is
about $110,000,000 In the treasury
available for this purpose, and that
about $64,000,000 of the, t79.000.000 now
in banks on deposit for the Govern
ment could be transferred.
The Board made public tonight a
circular defining time deposits as in
cluding any deposit subject to check on
which the bank has the right by writ
ten contract with the depositor at the
time of deposit to require not less than
30 days notice before any part of it
may be withdrawn. Any agreement
with a depositor not to enforce the
terms of such a contract shall vitiate
The Postoffice Department has sent
notice to all postmasters that no postal
savings funds shall be deposited in
banks which are not members of the
Federal reserve system, and instruct
ing them to discontinue deposits in
such non-member banks at once.
DAY CAILED FOURTH OF JULY
Thirty-Two Million Dollars Deposit
ed as Reserve in Chicago.
CHICAGO, Nov. 16. Celebration of
what Paul Warburg, of the Federal
Reserve Board, called a "financial
Fourth of July" was observed in the
opening today of -Federal reserve
banks in Middle-Western cities. The
first millions of the huge sums of
money that the banks will hold were
deposited amid ceremonies of rejoicing.
The Chicago reserve bank received
$32,000,000 today. "This means a com
plete change in the economic condition
of the United States," said C. H Bos
worth, Federal reserve agent. "It
should mean the safety, independence
and gradual expansion of our com
merce. Interest rates should soon fall
with the release of these vast sums
of actual cash."
KANSAS CITY GETS DEPOSITS
Bankers Decorate Reserve Institu
tion With Flowers.
KANSAS CITY, Nov. 16. With the
interior of the bank decorated with
flowers bearing the cards of bankers
and business men throughout this
section, the Kansas City Federal Re
serve Bank opened today. The Colo
rado National Bank of Denver was the
first depositor, with $360,000.
Despite the fact that the call to the
841 member banks directing them to
send their gold reserves was sent out
today, a number of banks anticipated
it and sent In amounts aggregating
$500,000. according to Charles M. Saw
yer, governor. Mr. Sawyer said he
had been Informed of a number of
shipments made directly to the sub
treasury in St. Louis, there to be

LARGEN GRANTS ASKED
ESTIMATE FOR. STATE! INSTITUTIONS
HIGHEA THAN TWO YEARS AGO.
Maintenance Increases for Insane Asy
lums and Pealtentlarr Dae to
Greater Number of Inmate.
SALEM. Or., Nov. 16. (SpeciaL) An
nouncement was made by tne State
Board of Control today that estimates
made by it for state institutions for the
coming biennial period totaled $1,763,
516.93, which is an Increase of $107,-
955.32 over the appropriations for the
same purpose made by the last Legris-
iiature for the present period. Of the
last appropriations $26,850 for erecting
barracks at the penitentiary and $20,000
for the Soldiers Home was turned back
into the State Treasury, making the
total appropriations used by the insti
tutions $1,608,711.61. While increases for
maintenance are suggested by the Board
for several Institutions the estimated
increases are largely due to the belief
of the Board that Improvements are
necessary. Maintenance increases are
asked for the Insane Asylums and the
Penitentiary because of an increasing
population, and new wards are desired
for the Insane Asylums because both of
them virtually are filled to capacity.
A comparison of appropriations for 1913
and 1914. with those estimated for 1915
and 1916, is as follows. 1913 and 1914
Insane Asylum, Salem, $611,353.50; East
ern Oregon Insane Asylum. $284,829.80;
Penitentiary, $203,500: Feeble-Minded

$73,450; Tuberculosis Institute, $53.000.,
Blind School, $37,235; Deaf School. $79,

'Svengali." one of the biggest fea
tures of vaudeville, is at the Empress
Theater. "Svengali" is a - musical act
containing a lot of mystery. The man
of the act is assisted by Miss Elsie
Terry, of good voice and who plays the
piano artistically. The man steps Into
the orchestra pit and the members of
the audience are at liberty to tell him
the name of-any song, ragtime, operatic
or old-home, favorite they desire to
hear. "Svengali" then in some mys
terious manner transmits the name of
the song to the girl, who plays and
sings the selection asked. There are
few songs, modern or ancient, that Miss
Terry does not know, and the act, taken
even as nothing more tnan a memory
exercise, is truly wonderfuL Many of
the songs called for yesterday had not
been heard from the vaudeville stage in
A bit of humor cropped in wnen a
man called for "La Paloma" and then
refused to recognize, it when Miss Terry
played It correctly.

clever with his hands, and his tricks

pear from the ashes or tne remnants.
Black and White, girls dressed ac
cording to the name, do an amazing

be recommended in its annual budget,
is one thing upon which members TT
the Portland School Board are agreed.
There may be dissension as to how low
it should be, however.
"We want to hold it around 5 mills,
and below that if possible," declared
Chairman M. G. Munlv.
"My position is to hold the tax to
4.6 mills," asserted Dr. Ev A. Sommer.
Directors J. V. Beach, O. M. Plura-
mer and Alan W. Smith are in favor of
a low tax and say they trust that the
scene at last year's taxpayers meet
ine-. when the levy was raised from
5.5 mills to 7.6 mills against the judg
ment of the school board, will not be
repeated on November 24, at the an
nual meeting In the Armory.
At a special meeting called for late
this afternoon. Dr. Sommer and Chair
man Munly may be expected to clash
on the question of the $100,001) set
