Next [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1914

Next THE NEW CURRENCY BELL promises to do a sorely needed service for the Nation . More than that it has properly gone farther for the farmer than for any other man . It will carry his productive , shorttime paper twice as long as other men s and will enable national banks for the first time to handle his mortgages to a present possible aggregate of 400 millions of dollars . Additional measures are also about to provide a national mortgage bank system with every effort , to reduce rate and inconvenience to the minimum . Now that legislation has provided , or is about to provide—in so far as that much-abused method may—ways and means for an easier and enlarged rural credit , we turn to the next problem , lt is the problem of marketing and distribution , in many respects in more chaotic condition than rural credits ever were and levying infuiitely heavier toll in all directions We should have a system of marketing and distribution flat would find some outlet in proportion to anv airri...

The Banker on the Road [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1914

The Banker on the Road ( The Illinois Bankers Association has furnished a fair illustration of what the bankers may properly do in public work . Illinois had the poorest roads and the poorest road laws of any conspicuous state in the Union , The Bankers association , deciding to look into the matter , appointed the first good roads Committee ever appointed by a bankers state association . S . E . Bradt , VicePresident of the First National Bank , DeKalb , and for many years a road commissioner in his own township , because of desire and need for such public service from such men , was appointed chairman of the Road committee .

Lloyd-George s Land Legislation In connection with our own agricultural awakening and a newer social and industrial welfare discussion , which thus far is largely confined to congested centers , we would give pause to note David Lloyd-Georges Interesting Land Reform program . The English , chancellor ot the exchequer Is greeted with great audiences and tremendous enthusiasm and has already written Into law much of his program providing for old age , motherhood and the unemployed . Coming events cast their shadows before and If we profit by the hundreds of years experience of Europe we may happily prevent conditions that require unusual measures to correct If permitted to exist unchecked . The most salient features of one of Lloyd-George s recent addresses are given : Why are so many of our vigorous and robust laborers trying to escape from their native land ? People do not leave the homes of their fathers except for good reasons . What do they want ? What do they need ? What would p...

As a Journalist Sees the New Banker [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1914

As a Journalist Sees the New Banker The conception of the banker as an ogre with a money-bag Instead of a heart , and a big stick labeled interest at his side , la passing . The banker-farmer movement Is steadily dissipating this tradition . W . B . Harrison , secretary of the Oklahoma bankers , Is well known as a great force In the work . One of his bulletins fell upon the desk of an editorial contributor to the St Louis Republic And also came a little leaflet from a country bank In Illinois . The article that resulted gives the view that the banker no longer Is merely the handmaid of commerce —he has qualified for a place with the wealth producers . By Louis Albert Lamb o BANKERS are accustomed to regard their business as handmaid to every kind of commerce and industry . In most of Its functions the bank Is-the servant of the producer and of the distributor of wealth . When the people of a community begin to exchange commodities on an extensive scale their daily necessities requir...

The Decline of the Small Town [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1914

The Decline of the Small Town By J . R . Moorehead ( Secretary National Association of Hetall Merchants . ) FIGURES show that the home market is rapidly on the decline . They show that the increase of our great city population isat the expense of these-smaller cities and towns . They show that while many farmers throughout the country have retired from active work and moved to our towns , more frequently to the county seat , that these towns have still lost in population . Many of the best county seats in these states have actually lost in population , as shown by the above table . It is a condition and a situation requiring attention from not only the retail merchants and business men of these towns , but more particularly the farmers living adjacent to them , and also the . country banker and the city banker as well . How is it possible tor our great cities to continue to prosper , our city banks to grow , if both the country and the towns within their territory are on the decline...
