Beer Denounced "Mr. Chairman, Mr. Chairman," the bishop shouted, hurrying forward. He made a statement denouncing beer In behalf of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and said It would be a "subterfuge unworthy" of Congress. Then Cannon turned to Beck.

Carroll of Chicago, liquidator of 138 closed Illinois Htato banks, denounce branch banking au "iniquitous" and xnonopol- istic." Heaping ProtetUd A protest against the.hearing was entered on behalf of the blll'H author, Senator Gltss of .Virginia; by Senator Bulkley, Democrat, Ohio, who -'pronounced the procedure "wholly Irregular," since the pleasure Is before the Senate. Authority for state-wide branch operation by national banks is a major part of the bill. Carroll.-told'the committee he was not,willing .to have "men like Traylor. Young, and Dawes have any control over my destiny," He related first a spectacular story of Chicago's financial troubles but was requested -to .confine his remarks to the purpose of the hearing—branch banking. • He said the "v/hole thing Is a contest for bank control In America, in anticipation of branch banking,'and in which the Independent unit bank Is the innocent -victim." Oppottt Remedy "The remedy Is* w.bree than" the disease," he added. "This Is no time'to tamper with the banking laws. Indeed, the whole bill lu a sugar-coated proposition fo? branch banking." Senator Fletcher, Democrat, Florida, brought out that Illinois prohibited branc(i banking and , said the big banks tliere were against U. "Traylor has always been for branch banking, ,and Is now," Carroll replied. He complained that many foreign bonds were ,forced on the small banks with the argument they were liquid. "They were so liquid that they flowed right out the window," he said.
