Order Business. '
, New Tork, August 15. President
Stephen M.-Grtswod of the New, Tork
State Banker's Association, says that
nt the tenth annual meeting of the as
sociation to be held. In Saratoga, Sep
tember 10 and 11, action will be taken
looking to the doing away of the money
order system by the express companies
and the postofflce department and the
taking up of the same by the bank&
''In addition to this money order busi
ness, the association will tackle the
question of admitting trust companies
to state assoclatlon"said he. "At present
trust companies are not obliged to
keep a reserve. This gives them an ad
vantage that the banks object to. The
bankers all over the country are tak
ing steps to rlng the necessary pres
8iii e to bear so that the money order
business now transacted by the post
ofBca department and the express com
panies vshall be controlled wholly by
the banks. The banking associations of
various states have taken the neces
sary action already, and we expect to
fall In line with our western brethren
and reach an agreement that will en
able the banks to conduct this partic
ular branch of the banking business
advantageously to the general public.
