For Wider Circulation [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1914

For Wider Circulation AS INDICATED by the report of the Agricultural Commission , reprinted on another page , it was not intended or expected that the present chairman and editor of THE BANKER-FARMER would continue the rather arduous work entailed in connection with this publication .

The present editor is to have the undivided assistance of Mr . Louis M . Tobin , who for some time has had part in the preparation of THE BANKER-FARMER and who through Vol . II will carry the larger part of the work . The publication ought to be greatly benefited by this arrangement .

If juBtly—remedy the fault . By J . R . Wheeler I NOTICED in a recent issue of the Wisconsin Agriculturist an article on Co-operative Rural Credits . The article begins : A lot of hot air has been let loose of late years on the subject of better rural credits . This article is a good sample of some of the hot air that we have been getting on rural credits . It implies that the banks do not furnish proper banking facilities ; that they are paying an unfair rate of Interest on deposits and loaning at a very high rate , and he quotes conditions in Dane County showing that the farmer pays the average rate of 6 % percent for money .

Why the Banker Must Act [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1914

Why the Banker Must Act By Arthur Reynolds Presidents Address to American Bankers Association WE are today in the maelstrom ot uncertainty ; State and federal legislation for the control of business by bureaus and commissions under political domination seems to be the order of the day and the advocates of tills policy are endeavoring to create prosperity by legal enactment disregarding those agencies which have heretofore been most efficient in promoting it . They do not appear to recognize the fact that the rapid industrial development which has taken place throughout the world has produced conditions which have required radical changes in business methods . The time has come when we must take a more active part in the practical politics of the day , for the banker and business man to wield that influence in our government to which they are entitled must make more effective use of their citizenship in the future . Heretofore we have contented ourselves by forwarding or adopting res...

More Important Than Interest [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 November 1914

More Important Than Interest By Dr . T . N . Carver V . S . Department of Agriculture IN THE PAYMENT of a debt it is not the interest but the principal which gives the greatest trouble , except where interest rates are exorbitant If a man borrows $ 100 for a year at 7 per cent , he has to pay , at the end of the year , $ 107 . If he borrows at 5 per cent he has to pay $ 105 . The difference is $ 2 . Now , $ 2 is not to be despised . Good business consists in large part in looking after just such Items as this . Nevertheless , it Is only a Uttle harder to pay $ 107 than to pay $ 105 . The point is that the principal is the same in either case , and it is the principal which gives the greatest trouble . The reason it has seemed necessary to emphasize this elementary fact is that many people seem to imagine that If interest on farm loans can be reduced from 7 per cent to 5 per cent or from 6 per cent to 4 per cent conditions will be made easy for the farmers . It is important that Inte...
