Stickney Says New System of
Banks Is Necessary in
OIN IN -SUB-TREASURY
'Should Havo Hank Good Enough
for Government to Deposit
Its Money in."
St. Paul, Not. 6. President A. B.
Stickney, of the Chicago-Great West
ern Railway Company, In a published
interview, advocates a national bank,
in which the Government shall de
posit its treasury funds. He said:
"Official reports of the United States
treasury show that on last Thurs
day, October 31, there was locked
up In the sub-treasury, Idle, useless,
the enormous sum of $127,170,059
actual cash, while banks In all the
reserve cities In the United States
had suspended cash payments and the
movement of crops had stopped and
laborers were compelled to accept
checks for wages Instead of cash, all
for the want of currency, which want
of currency the New York banks are
trying to relieve by Importing about
$B0,000,000 gold or about one-quarter
the amount held In the treasury
idle and useless. Can any system of
government, banking be conceived
which would produce a more absurd
result? Let us have a national bank,
which not only Is good enough for
the people to deposit money In, but
good enough for the Government to
deposit Its money In."

Dear Editor: The article entitled
"Holidays Are a Nuisance," which ap
peared In Wednesday's Issue of your
valuable paper came to the writer's
attention, and since he has recently
had occasion to give the subject of
holidays something more than n
cursory examination and therefore
foels that his opinion as to what can
or can not bo legally done on a holi
day Is ontltled to somo little con
sideration, be desires to presont it
to tho public through your columns,
In tho first place, it should bo un
derstood that holidays and Sundays
are not synonymous as to their effect
upon business transactions, Sunday
being, primarily, at common law, a
dies non jurldlcus, while holidays
have only the sanctity attached to
them by statute, and all business
may be transacted on them except
such as, by statute, expressly forbid
den. It is true that wo have statutes
regulating the observance of the first
day of the week, commonly called
Sunday, or the Lord's day, and these
statutes are far more general in
their terms and requirements than
are the statutes regulating the proper
observance of holidays, and pro
hibit many transactions on said day
that can bo legally done and perform
ed on a holiday.
Holiday statutes usually provide
merely for the supension of judicial
proceedings, for the presentation and
protest of commercial paper on the
next secular day, and for the regula
tion of the sale of Intoxicating liquors
on certain holidays.
Inasmuch as it is tho writer's un
derstanding that all transaclo..T noi
within the statutory prohibitions
provided for any certain
holiday can be carried on upon that
holiday as upon any other day, hi
would give It as his opinion that the
Oregon statutes can be relied upon to
point out with precision the only acts
that are legally prejudiced by the
holiday proclamations of His Execl
lency, the Governor, and that. the ex
ecution and delivery of deeds and
other Instruments and Indentures are
not included in the statutory holiday
proscription. Respectfully submitted

It Wat Written by Rougot do LIL In
Ont Brief Hour.
On April 25, 1702, Rougot de Lisle,
the military onglnoor, who bad assum

as tha champagne wont round tho la

other topic. Patriotic songs? A by nut
for tho army of the Rhino? Something
better than the Jingling "C Ira!" Tho
host first suggested a public competi

Rougot d LUla and asked him to
"conipov a noblo song for the Fronch
Rougat do Lisle tried to excuse him
self. Again the champagne passed
round, and Just as the party broke up
a fellow officer about to quit Strassburg
next day begged De Lisle for a copy of
his forthcoming song.
"I make the promise on behalf of
your comrado," Dietrich replied.
Rouget de Lisle reached his lodging
dose by, but not to sleop. His violin

Struck n few chords. Soon a melodv
seemed to grow under his lingers. No
sooner had he put down the notes than
ho dashed off the words.

for himself an undying name be threw

Washington, Nov. G. While Presi
dent Roosevelt does not admit that he
has in any way contributed to the
present financial situation, ho has
become convinced that he is a very
Important factor in It, so far as It
may be improved, and the cause for
irritation and excitement removed.
That ho is deeply concerned that the
tendency to unsettle values does not
go on Is Impressed on all who have
discussed any phases of the matter
One of tho most hopeful signs Is
that there has been created already
much better feeling and a fuller un
derstanding between Roosevelt and
the great financiers of tho country.
Thi3 is regarded" here as tho most
substantial progress that has been
mado toward bettering things finan
cially. In the face of tho great danger
which was threatened week before
last much of the President's resent
ment has died out, and there are ev
idences that ho will do nothing to
keep alive the turmoil and excitement.
Caused More Often by Habit Than by
Defective Vocal Organs.
"Stammering Is often more the re
sult of habit thnn from any defect of
the vocal orguns," suya an authority.
"It Is generally. If not always, cnuecd
by a spasm of the larynx, resulting
from nervous contraction of the or
gans, thus refusing to permit a propel
How of the air current producing tone.
People rarely or never stammer when
slngiug, for then the attention is di
vided between words and music, til.
nervousness Is momentarily forgotten
and the passage of the air current
through the larynx Is continuous nnd
"Stammering very often Is the ro
suit of Imitation, sometimes Intention
al, sometimes unconscious, and the af
flictiou Is much more general than
might bo supposed. In one compara
tively small section of the city there
nre thirty-five stammerers', and every
one of them Is able to demonstrate to
his own satisfaction not only that he
docs not stammer very badly, but thnt
somo other person he knows stammers
a great deal worse than himself.
Every stammerer Is Intensely sensitive
nbout his infirmity, rarely forgives and
never does forget nuy allusion to it
which in his mind savors of ridicule."
