CONGRESSMEN DO NOT FAVOR IT
Canvass of Leading Officials
Bankers Shows Qrsat Hot
New York, Nov. 6. financiers of
New York hold opposing views regard
ing the suggestion that President
Roosevelt call an extra session of con
gress at once to provide for currency re
forms. Half a doxen members of con
gress, men prominent In the house, op
pose it. The financiers who oppose a
special session of congress generally
favor currency reform, but they hold
that the regular session of congress la
so near that the subject can be consid
Lcslio 31. Shaw, president of the
Carnegie Trout company and former
secretary of the treasury, Is one of those
who fat or immediate action. He ssys
if congress had acted last winter the
critit through which wo are now pass
ing would not Lave happened.
"Wise legislation," be said, "cannot
bo patted too quickly."
K. H.IIarrlman, James Btlllman and
Henry Clews are against the idea. Mr.
"No extra session can help existing
conditions. What wo need is rest and
quiet, and the opportunity for things
to become normal."
James Btlllman, president of the Na
tional City bank, said:
"We should have more currency.
Financiers have known this for years.
I have worked for it, bnt when it cornea
to adopting legislation we must go
slowly. Bo far as present conditions
are concerned, all that Is needed Is for
the press to keep on reassuring the
public that thero Is no occasion for ap
prehension. Values aro absolutely
fixed, but, of course, wo cannot have
money with which to do business If tbe
peoplo hoard it away. There is no
danger, and the people should under
Henry Clews raid:
"No harm will bo done by waiting
for the regular session. The present
difficulty will gradually pass away, day
by day. Wo are already over the worst
of it. There's no longer any sting of
panic. As soon aa congress does meet,
it will be for tho president then to pres
ent his views on the situation to them
and start them on their work."
