Industries, generally, cannot obtain the necessary credit for even orderly conduct of their business let alone expansion and they will not be able to until the billion and one-half of hoarded money is returned and the gold reserve for its redemption, amounting to one-fourth of all the gold in America, is released. The Government has done all that it can do by legislation and the problem can be solved only through a patriotic and educational appeal to the people of Kansas..." Warren Finney committed suicide the following year during the investigation that came to be known simply as "The Finney Bond Scandal."
