Bankers Want Money Paid for
Purchase of Certificates
Left on Deposit.
GOLD GOING TO INTERIOR
Distribution of Coin for Relief
Country Is Becoming Heavier
New York, Nov. 20. The govern
ment's issue of $100,000,000 in
trsasury certificates continues to en
gross the attention of New York
bankers, who apparently have not
reached a definite decision on the
course they will pursue. Subscrip
tions so far received at the local sub
treasury indicates that the larger
banks are temporarily holding back
offers of purchases. This fact has
led to a more or less definite report
that the neads of the 'larger institu
tions are desirous of obtaining some
sort of assurance from Washington
that money paid out here for the pur
chase of new securities will be left on
deposit with local Institutions. Tho
currency premium varied between
2& and 3 during most of today's
negotiations. With tho price of
money ruling at these figures It was
said that bankers could not see their
way clear to purchase certificates un
der any other arrangements. Money
shipments from New York to tho in
terlor have been quite heavy recently
and the banks are anxious to con
tinue this means of assistance to tho
general situation. There has been
absolutely no organization to buy the
forthcoming certificates such as has
been intimated since Monday, unless
it be tho fact that several largo
loans wero called in today. Some of
tho New York bankers are said to bo
holding back in tho matter of sub
scriptions so as to induco tho small
Investor who has hoarded his money
to bring his amount from hiding.
