Toronto, Ont., Aug. 10— A combined effort.is .-..bout to be made by city banks to decrease circulation of American bills 'in this city. At present the city is flooded with American .silver .certificates. The following notice was posted in the Standard bank Monday: ' "On and-after Saturday, August.!*, American one dollar bills will only be received for 90 cents." It is understood that other banks will follow the example of the Standard bank: This action will probably result in a much decreased circulation, of American bills in this city. In regard to the American silver, most of the city banks are not accepting it at all. Some will accept American silver only from customers, but only in small amount.*. The railway companies refuse to handle it and departmental stores are dUcuw- ing the advisability of refusing it M money. . Hamilton, Out., Aug. 10.— Following 1 the example of the Toronto banks, the merchants' local banks here have de-. cided to refuse to accept American •!!- .yer and silver certificates. For years American bills and currency have been' accepted .ftt . par by the ..merchante.'. United States silver or silvercertiflcates will not be accepted in payment of city taxes.
