This is an honor, never before ' conferred on a • woman in the. metropolis, and the fact that MIBB Davis is to bo the first wom­ an ever appointed to a commissioner- ship in Now York is' a tribute to her and an appreciation of the fire woifc Hhe has dono while' head of tho stale reformatory. - - At a meeting\ of the Board of Gov­ ernors of tho Reformatory on Satur­ day a four years' leave, of nuacmco 'vas granted to Miss Davis, and she loft Bertord Friday to g o to New York •• to prepare to assume' tuo .lut'os cf her ' offlce>__l_ liss Davis is one of tho most pfoml'- . nent women in Wettchestcr Ct-unty, and In the years she lias'beiii i>t Bed­ ford has done fine work.

WARBURG ON - .- NEW CURRENCY LAW. Says They Should Mean a New Era in History of Banking. Paul lib Warburg, of Central Ave­ nue, Hartsdale, Just outside of White Plains, wh o is a member of the firm of Kuhn, Loeb & Co., and who has been mentioned as one of the prob­ able members of the Federal Re ­ serve Board under >the new currency laWB, has- given out a statement in, w\hlch h e says that the law \woulo\ mean a new. era in the' history of banking in the United States'.\ ' : —\Ther e cannot b e any doubt,\ h e said, \but \that the enactment of this legislation will inaugurate a now era in the history - of backing- in tho United States -While it is to b e re« gretted that some important sugges­ tions made by the business commun­ ity could not be. adopted, the' funda­ mental thoughts,'^for the victory .of which some of us have worked for \so many years, have won. ; \That is to say, from now on w e shall witness the gradual, elimination of the bond-secured currency', of 'scattered reserves, of- - Immobilized commercial paper-and of' pyramiding of call loans on the Stocfc Exchange, The. ship is headed right; and noth­ ing. will ever turn her back into her old course. This Is a success of such vast importance that n o matter whether or.not the law/be perfect in many details, we have all reason to b e profoundly grateful for having progressed so far. \As long as-this legislation was a question for discussion, it wa s in- cumbent on all of us to try to b e helpful b y offering, the freeest crlti cism. Now that the discussion is closed and the law has gone into eP feet, there remains only one thing for lis t o do, and- that is for each of us cheerfully to cooperate in giving It the fairest and fullest test, \If after a few years, of actual experience, it should 1ie_ shown that 'the 'business community was wrong In its suggestions and apprehensions' we all'shall be satisfied. If. on the other hand, it should- be shown that errors were made, I believe that the country at large and its representa­ tives at Washington, will • then b e perfectly willing 'to make the neces­ sary amendments, to the law. . By that time. a.great many things which 'today or e questions of theory will have become hard facts and every­ body will be able to Judge from act­ ual experience. * . \\'It is only natural that in a mat-, tor on which so many minds had to- agree concessions and compromises wore necessary. B y forcing the member banks to continue Jo keep a portion of their reserves,in their own ' vaults, b y providing for a minimum of eight federal reserve banks, in­ stead of four, the la w arrests tlvo fullest possible concentration -of re­ serves, an,d thereby restricts 1 to a. material 'degree the power .and elec- tlclty of the.future system. If this wag done as an expression of. con- scrvatlsm, In order to bring about a gradual development,only .of the •sys­ tem! Congress inay have acted .wise­ ly, -but It'-ls sincerely to be. hoped that -the future - Federal Reserve Board will 'frame its .policy accord- Jngjy.
