We have been asked so many times for our
opinion of the new Federal Reserve Act com
monly called the Currency Bill, that we shall use
this issue to make a short statement regarding
the new law.
First let us emphasize the fact that our own
attitude towards the measure is entirely friendly
and we expect either directly or indirectly to be
greatly benefited by it. Three of our directors,'
Messrs. Leslie Butler, E. H. French and Truman
Butler had the privilege of attending the hearing
held by Secretary of the Treasury McAdoo and
Secretary of Agriculture Houston in Portland on
The Federal reserve act is undoubtedly the
greatest piece of constructive financial legisla
tion of modern time3 and its administration by
able and impartial men will be of greatest bene
fit to the entire country. One could not help
being impressed with the view taken by Secre
tary McAdoo when he said that if it served only
one of its purposes that of preventing panics in
tKe future it should be considered 100 good.
The same sentiment was expressed by A. L. .
Mill, President of the Portland Clearing House,
when he said "as a resultof this bill this country
will never again see a financial panic."
The regulations governing state banks en- .
tering the reserve system have not been publish
ed and ea the clause requiring National banks to
apply for membership on or before February 23
km not apply to state banks we shall probably
take further time to consider the matter.
'We have some advantages under the state
charter which we would.not have under the Fed
eral Reserve Act and we may find that we can
better serve this community by continuing to op
erate under our state charter with an arrange
ment through one or more of our city correspon
dents by which we can give our customers the
added advantage of the Reserve" Association.
In any event the doors of the Reserve Asso
ciation are open to us at any time and we will
enter when we are satisfied that your interest as
well as ours will be best served by our so doing.

sn, of Portland, one of the speakers
at the Hood Kiver Commercial club

modern Oregon paraphrase of the
"Now 1 lay me" prayer which was so
sppropriate and reverent in childhood.

For Monday night, February 2. 1914,
brought the annual Hood Kiver Com
mercial club banquet and "jinks", and
the usual transfer of club management
from the old to the new. Members of
the club and their friends assembled at
the club rooms, and at 8 o'clock went
in a body to the Hotel Oregon, where
they completely filled the big dining
room, and addressed themselves to an
excellent and well served feist. Ibis
is the menu:
Cream of Rice Soup,
Celery, Sweet Pickles, Ripe Olives,
Fillet of Sole, Tartar Sauce,
Croquettes I'Mignon de Kechambeau,
Roast Stuffed Young Chicken,
String Beans, Mashed Potatoes,
Ice Cream and Cuke,
Only the coffee didn't get any farther
than the menu card. Hut cigars came
along, and nobody complained at the
President, Heilbronner called .the as
sembly to order, and made a brief
statement, urging unity of effort for
the good of tn club, that its success
in advancing the interests of the whole
valley might be even more marked in
the future than they have been in the
past. He then introduced Mr. Clark,
the retiring president, who' by virtue
of that oltice, became toastmatser for
the evening. Mr. Clark expressed the
hope that the club might go forward in
woik for the betterment of Oregon in
general, and in Hood River valley in
particular, and then introduced U. A.
Johnson, long a prominent factor in
the success pf the Portland Commercial
club. He assured his hearers that he
brought the friendly greeting of that
larger body, and launched in an im
pressive word picture of the beauties
of Hood River valley. He regarded the
presence here of a university club of
150 members as significant of the high
order of citixenibiu in tha community.
He told of the world wide fame of the
Hond Kiver fruit, and declared that a
friclid bought Hood Kiver apples in
China, and tound the seller alive to the
significance of their fame. The speak
er a exuerience in club work taught
him that the interest of the Hood
Kiver Commercial club was not in the
town alone, but in the entire valley
and district; and that success here
would be fully attained only when all
the people of the vattey worked to
gether in harmony fr its.and their
own betterment. He urged construc
tive criticism, but deplored destructive
Mr. Johnson closed with a beautiful
tribute to Oregon, and impressively
pronounced his message of optimism,
faith and courage.
K. A. Booth, of Eugene, was then
introuced as "the next United States
senator from Oregon." He is one of
Oregon's commissioners to the Panama
Pacific exposition of 1915, and declared
the commission's willingness to do
everything possible for the furtherance
of Hood Kiver county's interests in
that great fair. Aside from that phase
of his remarks, Mr. Booth's address
was an inspiring argument for the
broader and better citizenship of the
whole wide world; for the peaceful
settlement of all disputes, and for the
givirg of an absolute equivalent for
all we received. There was a hint of
senate timber in the man as he spoke
of the broad and universal character'of
the exposition, of its Miiportance to the
whole race, and of our nation's share
in the betterment of that race, and the
obligation its superior equipment laid
upon our nation and our state.
His tribute to the valley and its peo
ple, whether or not identified with the
Hood, Kiver Commercial club, was
beautiful and impressive, and wot) for
Mr. Booth most convincing applause.
President Heilbronner then an
nounced the conclusion of the session,
and invited all present to attend the
vaudeville performance at the assem
bly rooms of the club. The hall was
filled in a very short time, and silence
followed the music of a piano which,
with the performing, company, re
mained concealed behind curtains which
presently parted, reveallsg Wilmer
Sieg as interlocutor, Clarence Gilbert'
and Arthur Clarke as bones; and
Messrs. Kelly and Cruikshank as tam
bourines. Back of this line were
grouped J. A. Epping, L. A. Hender
son, t,ste Brosius, tester Perkins, Cul
ver Osgood, C. H. vaughan, P. G.
Schreuder and E. M. Spaulding, with
Hans Hoerlein as accompanist. Soros
by Mr. Osgood and Mr. Brosius, with
chorus effects, and a charming English
ballad by Mr. ripping, earning and
receiving an encore, were interspersed
with local "quips by the blackfaced
talent. The singing was heartily ap
plauded, and the humorous stories at
. the expense of various prominent peo
ple in the club, provoked uproarous
laughter. The session concluded at
I Taken altogether, the affair is con
sidered most successful in every way.
The evident sentiment of the club's
interest in the affairs of every section
and every citizen of the valley is hailed
as a promise of advancement both for
the club and the community. And the
visit of Mr. Booth and Mr. Johnson,
j with their lofty and eloquently ex
1 pressed sentiments, are recognized as a
stimulus for the oragnization, a closer
union for all elements of the district, I
and a harbinger of a greater prosper
ity than has ever been known in the i

SEVER RIVER UNES
The Panama Canal Act will make it
necessary for railways in the United
States to discontinue operation of their
competing steamboat lines. This fart
was recently brought out by J. N.
Teal in the following report to the
Portland Chamber of Commerce:
"The time is faRt approaching when
the railroads must show good cause for
continuing their operation or disuose of
their competing steamboat lines On the
waterways of the United States. Ever
since the passage of the Panama Canal
Act opportunity has been had to mBke
disposition of them, but I have yet to
hear of anv effort being made In this
direction. Unless it is extended by tha
Interstate Commerce Commisison the
time limit expires July 1, 1914. No
doubt efforts will be made by the rail
roads to secure the help of such bodies
ss this or their tacil consent to the
continuance of existing conditions. I
sincerely hope that this organization at
least will not allow itself to be deluded
or beguiled into taking any such course
of action. It is through no feeilng of
hostility to the railroads I sky this, but
because the need9 of commerce require
that the waterways of this country
must be freed of a condition that, has
been used to prevent water competi
tion, yes water transportation. It is
no part of a railway's business to oper
ate competing lines of steamboatB and
we can uever have our waterways
serve their true purpose until the grip
which has throttled their use is broken.
It is not a matter of sentiment, or of
good fellowship, it is a matter of self
preservation and of immediate and di
rect concern to us all. So I again say,
as we were amongst thr leaders in se
curing the enactment of the law, let
us be amongst the leaders in seeing
that it is enforced."
SOCIETIES WILL HAVE
A UNION MEETING
The young people's societies of Hood
River churches in their desire to reach
the highest possible point of efficiency,
have planned a rally for next Saturday

wide range of experience coupled with
his intense and deep rooted love for
