SECURE! 1Y ASSETS IF BANKS
Banks to Deposit Money With Gov
ernment to Guarantee Both
Notat and Depolt.
Washington, Jan, 0. The sub-coin-ntttoe
of the boose committee on bank
ing and carrency, to which was entrust
ed the (rasalng of a bill to Increase the
elasticity of the currency, reached a
coacloaioa yesterday and will report
favorably to the fall committee a bill
drawn la the main by Chairman Fow
ler, of the comssitUeo. The bill will
be Introduced by Fowler and referred
to hts committee, where It will form
the working basis for the framing of a
bill of possibly the same scope and
The bill provides (or the complete
retirement o( all outstanding national
bank bond secured currency and author
ises In lien thereof a currency based
upon general assets of the banks, to be
worked out in this way:
The controller of the currency will
deeisnate throughout the country cer
tain redemption cities, so that there
eball bo a redemption city within at
least 21 hours' reach o( every national
bank. The national banks will indi
cate to the controller of the currency to
what redemption city they wish to be
joined. The controller will then select
a time and place within each redemp
tion district for the organising of that
district In the following manner:
Each national bank In that district,
regardless ol its capital stock, will be
entitled to one vote. Representatives
el the banks will meet at a time and
plaee designated sad elect a board of
saaaagers to consist of seven members.
The sevea will elect a chairman, who
will become a deputy controller of enr
reacy and aweaae control of his re
demption district, except that he shall
set have charge of the enforcement of
the criminal statutes.
Each Bat local bank is aalhorlsed to
present to the secretary of the treasury
Battens bank notes aad lawful money
ia Ilea of other national bank bond sh
eared outstanding Botes. Then, if the
bank's application therefor ia indorsed
by the board of managers of the re
demption district to which It belongs,
the bank will receive guaranteed credit
Botes to the amount of its capital stock.
These notes will be subject to a tax of
2 per cent per annum. Each bank will
be required to deposit as a guarantee
fund with the treasurer of the United
Slates 5 per cent of Its average deposits
for the preceding 12 months and 6 per
cent of the credit notes which It takes
out. The revenne thus obtained Is to
create and support a national guaran
tee land of (500,000,000 for the guar
antee of both the deposits and the out
standing banknotes of every national
bank. Eighty per cent of this fund is
to be Invested In United States bonds
drawing 2 per cent Interest, while the
remaining 20 per cent is to be deposit
ed in banks of the various redemption
cities for the purpose of redeeming the
guaranteed credit notes of the hanks of
the various redemption districts.
When the natlonsl guarantee fond
reaches 125,000,000, which would be
almost simultaneous with the birth of
the new law, the government Is re
quired to return to the hanks the Unit
ed States bonds now held as security
for Federal deposits, the object being
to enable the banks to get control of
the bonds, so that the government can
invest tho 80 per cent of the guaranteed
fond in 2 per cent bonds and regain
control. In buying these bonds the
banks holding them shall be paid tbelr
original purchase price, providing their
exact purchase price can be proven.
It is Fowler's Idea, as embodied In
the bill, to have the new credit notes
printed on a green background in differ
entiation from the yellow background
of the gold notes and white background
of the silver ccrtlcafites.
Tunnel Open for Traffic.
New York, Jan. 0. The first of the
series of tunnels under the waters that
divide Manhattan from Brooklyn on
the one side and from New Jersey on
the other was opened for traffic late
last night, when the initial passenger
train left the Bowling Green station of
the Interborough subway and went the
length of one of the long steel double
tabes which parallel each other under
the river to Brooklyn. The opening of
this tunnel la regarded as a long step
toward the eolation of the transports

VERDICT DECLARED VOID.
Court of Appeals Reverses Decision
In Schmltz Case.
Ban Francisco, Jan. 10. "Iho JuJg.
ment and order are reversed and tho
trial court is directed to sustain iho de
murrer to the indictment and dischargo
tho defendant as to such indictment."
This was the decision handed down
yesterday by the District Court of Ap
peals reversing tho judgment of tho
trial court in tho case of ex-Mayor
Schmits, sentenced to flvo years In San
Qaentln ou tho chargo of extortion
based upon the alleged "holding up"
of the French restaurants in the matter
of liquor licenses and setting aside tho
indictment on which his conviction was
The trial was made notablo by the
appearance of Abraham Hart, lire po
litical dictator who controlled the
municipal administration, and practi
cally placed Schmits In office, as a
witness against the mayor, testifying
that he had paid to Schmits 13,500 of
tho $5,000 received by R jof from the
Frenrh restaurants, In order that
Schmits would permit tho board of
police commissioners to issuo liquor li
censes to them. Rue! had, previous
to this, dramatically pleaded guilty to
tho same charge, at the same time
making the enigmatical statement that
he was Innocent.
On the ground that the Indictment
did not show that a publio offense was
committed, becaue it did not allege
any threat to Injure property, the court
holding that a liquor license was not
property, but mere permission: that a
threat to preent the obtaining ol
J liquor llccnso by one who hid no au-
tbority in the premises did not consti
tute a threat aeainst property, end be
cause of numerous errors In the ruling
of the trial judge Superior Judge
Frank II. Dunne the Appellate court
held that the indictment was Invalid
and the conviction null and void. In
effect, the court held that Schmits was
not given a fair and impartial trial.
While the decision was not wholly
a surprise, even to the prosecution, and
had been freely predicted by Scbmlts's
friends (or some time, It did not fall to
cause something of a sensation and was
the sole topic of conversation yesterday.
The decision will hare the effect of
Invalidating the other four Indictments
charging Schmltx as well as Ruef with
extortion, and renders void the plea of
guilty made by Ruef, as the Appellate
court held that no! crime was commit
ted. By this rerertsl It Is feared that the
prosecution has lost its hold upon Ruef,
and it was freely predicted last night
that the former political boea would
now refuse all overtures of immunity,
wholly or in part, to testify in the
bribery-graft cases, and fight every in
dictment aalntt him.
Although the court ordered Schmltx
discharged from custody on the extor
tion indictments, neither Schmltx nor
Ruef can take advantage of the reversal
for CO days, and even then there is
little likelihood that either of them
will be able to get the enormous ball
required for their release. There are
still pending against Ruef 128 Indict
ments) charging bribery, on which the
total ball is 11,170,000, and Schmits
would have to get bonds for (450,000
on the Indictments that remain ogatntt
him. The proi ecutlon has 20 days in
which to ask the Appellate court for a
rehearing of the appeal, and the court
has 10 days in which to decide the mo
tion. The appeal would then go to the
Supremo court, where tho same length
of time would be required before the
decision of yesterday can go Into effect.
Cut Rates on Atlantic.
Liverpool, Jan. 10. The White Star
line today announced a reduction In lis
second and third class passenger rates
from English p)rU to New York and
Boston. This step Is taken because of
the traffic tliat has been deflected from
the veesela of this lino by the Lualtanla
and Mauretania, and tc the refusal of
the Cunard company to concede differ
ential rates for vessels of the Bailie
clsse. Tho second-class fares were re
duced by from f 0 to (7.50 and the
third class fares by from M to (b. The
Cunard company Immediately said
tliat it would meet the cut.

There are many conditions which
make this long drive and shipment un

aging of meat caused by the goad stick
of the csttender, tho fevered condition
resulting from the close confinement,
tho cramped position In the crowded
cars, and the general unfitness for

The slaughter of these animals In

the great enemy of the frnlt Industry

was evident. Mr. Armstrong made bis
