CTeariaff of Checks by Tederal Xeierve
Banks Mandatory. R. W. Schmeer.
cashier of the United States National
bank, who returned to his desk yes
terday after attending; the meeting- In
New Tork of tbe executive council of
the American Bankers' association,
brings home word that Interest In the
work of the council centered chiefly on
the check clearing; and collection order
of the federal reserve board. It was a
revelation to Mr. Schmeer and other
bankers in attendance that tbe order of
the federal reserve board Is mandatory
because the law makes It so. They
werp Informed of thla fact by Governor
Strong of the federal reserve board. It
is also the opinion of Mr. Schmeer that
the board will put the ney plan Into
effect aa soon as possible and there
will be no way of disputing their au
thority to do so. The most that the
bankers of Uie country, who may be
opposed to the plan, can nope for, is
that the operation of th law may be
postponed for another six months, until
the banks can have full opportunity to
prepare for working under the new
system, and fortify themselves against
Its demanda. The executive council
appointed a committee consisting of
five bankers representing different
sections of the country to go over the
situation with the federal reserve
board and to secure, If possible, the
desired postponsment Of six months.
ashland's Park a Marvel. L.loyd
Mullt, vice president of the Northwest
ern National bank, returned to his
desk yesterday after a two weeks'
business trip to southern Oregon. Two
things that Impressed him most were
the park established by the city of
Ashland and the fact that the earlier
reports of the damage to fruit in that
section on account of frost will be
found to have been largely exagger
ated. "Ashland is entitled to a great
deal of credit for Its enterprise and lib
erality. Nature gave It a base from
which to work. It has made a beauti
ful park and has undoubtedly started
a resort movement which will mean a
great deal to Oregon in the years to
come. Bo far as the frost is concerned,
it has been demonstrated that smudg
ing Is a good investment, even if it
has some temporary disagreeable
features.. Those who smudged saved
most of The fruit; those who did not,
suffered heavily. The frost has done
some damage, but for the most part It
has thinned out tbe heavy bearing
trees principally and there Is left, on
most of them, all of the fruit they can
Will Radically Upset Existing Prac
tices. The aim of the federal reserve
board is ultimately to collect all out
of town checks of national banks of
the country, whether drawn on mem
ber or non-member bevnks, through the
federal reserve banks. There are num
erous startling departures from accus
tomed practices which will be Involved
in carrying out the plan. The mere
suggestion of some of them has al
ready taken away the breath of some
of the banks. There are. It is esti
mated, checks representing $300,000,
000 in the mails all of the time. Under
past practices of Immediate credit
tirni9h thnle rnrraannnrlenta and fith
60 1 erwise the banks have been able to
I CO. ILL
count these "transit" checks aa cash am
due from banks. Unfer the propose
system, they will have to count then
In future statements as "checks ii
transit." for they wtll not be allowec:
to consider the checks as paid , tin til
the time provided under the tlmt
schedule arranged by the federal re
serve bank has elapsed. The banks
will also be required to carry a suf
ficient balance, over and above their
required reserves, with the federal re
serve bank to take care of this "float")
or "transit" charge. Since tha check
will be collected by the federal reserve
bank the pustomary charges for - col
lections, now made by banks, will be
eliminated, and a large source of rev
enue of country banks will be taken
away from them. So serious it this
last Item considered that many coun
try banks believe they will either have
to go out of business or give up their
charters and become state banks. It Is
further suggested that this latter plan
will be ineffective, aa the federal re
serve banks propose to collect : the
checks of state and private banks
where it can be done. Local ban ks
will be appointed in each place to aot
as the collection agent of the reserve
bank. The possibilities of the proposed
plan are declared to be far reaobtng I
and radical In the extreme.
Oronp Two Meeting at Independence.
Group Two of the Oregon State Bank
ers' association will hold its annual
rneetlng at Independence on 'Wednes
day. The delegates will be guests of
the local bankers. Kdgar H. Sensenich.
cashier of the Northwestern National
bank, will be one of the speakers. A.
E. Gebhardt, who conducted a serleB
of law lectures before the members of
the Portland chapter of the American
Institute of Banking, will hold a round
table discussion on negotiable Instru
ments. Most of the Portland banks
will have representatives at the meet
took Market Influenced by Pesee.
According to stock market gossip Sam
uel VanClan, vice president of the
Baldwin Locomotive works, admitted
that his company hud stopped further
work on extensions to its arnmulJt.lon
plant because of insistent peace talk..
Other gossip said Greece was near
Merchants Buyls Clogs Current
reports from Chicago dry goods mar
ket are to the effect that merchants are
buying up closer than usual. There
Is a greater number of merchants in
the market than customary at this
time and they are placing good-sited
orders. They want immediate deliv
eries, however, and they are not com
mitting themselves to long future pur
chases. The report is that cool weath

Because of the greater opportuni
ties in Portland for the selling of
meat products, Morris & Co. will close
the branch offices at Seattle and
Spokane and handle the business of
the entire northwest from the Port
land branch. Roy D. Btone, manager
here, announced today that this step
would mean an active participation In
the proposed Alaska business as well
as a widening of the domestic field.
It is improbable that Morris & Co.
will start a packing plant here at this
time, Mr. Stone explained; but tnat Is
not necessary, under present condi
tions. The fact that the company finds
Portland th logical city of the north
west to handle its ailing campaigns.
Mr. Stone looks upon ae an indication
of the general revival of business here.
The Alaska business alone amounts
to many thousands of dollars per
year, and Portland hereafter will
handle this. Whether or not It is to
be handled direct from Portland de
pends upon the establishment of
Mr. Stone will go to Seattle tomor
row to arrange for the closing of the
office and for bringing the office staff
