The government issues money to
banks in order to supply the people
with a medium of exchange. The
banks are merely agants of the gov-
ernment in placing the money in cir-
culation. This must have been the
theory of the United States Supreme
court when it held that congress, un-
der the general welfare clause of the
constitution, had power to issue curr-
ency to the banks. The money issued
to banks is loaned at 6 to 20 per cent
but the agents retain nearly all the
interest as commission. The govern-

THE PRESIDENT ON A TOUR OF THE
President Roosevelt is making a
tour of the northwestern states and
is meeting with a hearty reception.
The President is particularly popu-
lar in the portion of the country he
is in and the people are showing
their appreciation of him, wherever
his tra il stops. His speeches are
short and all seem to have a tariff

much like the inexhaustible subject
of the tarift will i>e the paramount

After awhile the "boom ' fell througn.

The chancellor was greatly pleased

any hotel accommodations. A legal
