Philadelphia Banker Resigns Be

[Tiy Telegraph to Th« Triune 1
Philadelphia. Feb. 24 —The retirement of Ef
finsrham P. Morris, th" well known banker of
this city. who announced his resignation as trus
tee of the Mutual Life Insurance Company to
day, was a step long contemplated, according
to Mr. Morris. His reasons are set forth In this
statement, (riven out by Mr. Morris this after

caupo It proved to be Impracticable for me, aa
a Ron-resident, to keep In touch with details of
the management of a corporation having- its
office in New-York, v hose policy must neces
sarily be adapted to varying- conditions from
day to day. I remained in the board after the
recent deplorable events only long enough to
vote in support of every meaaure advocated by
the Truesdale investigating committee.
To show how impossible It is for any one
living at a distance to know mu^h about such
a company v the Mutual, until the names were
brought out in the Investigation I did not even
know of the existence of Mr. Thehaud, Mr. Ray
mond. Mr. Fields or Mr. Hamilton. Their names
were never mentioned at any i-oard meeting ,
and I never heard of them or their relations to
It seems foolish for a man to <:°rvp on a large
board where, naturally, he can have no voice in
the actual management by reason of his ah
per.ee and can only hear of decisions of policy
after they are made. No rocn director can be
called on to do more than support officers whom
h« supposes to be honorable men, and who are
In charge of the business; he can pass upon
such questions only as are brought before the
board for action. If the officers abuse this tn»t
and do nr>r bring: matters before the board, the
directors can by no possibility have any knowl
edge of them. In the case of the Mutual these
officers have been dispensed with and the courts
•will decide the merits of the matter. It has
Daasad out of the control of trustees, and there
fore there was no reason for me to remain
longer on the board.

The principal numbers from all the current light opera and musical
comedy successes of the day are at the instant command of the owner of
a PIANOLA PIANO. There are over thirty of thi* season's alone (some
of which have not yet reached New York}, to say nothing of the hundreds
from previous seasons, and all the old favorites.
Or, if more serious pleasures are desired, the whole world of music is
equally available. More than 15,000 Pianola Music Rolls are already cata
logued, including from this enchanted realm the works of all the modern
and classic masters.
The PIANOLA PIANO H a high grade
standard upright piano (Weber, Steck,
Wheelock or Stuyvesant, all of which are
controlledby the Aeolian Company), into the
case of which is built a Metrostyle Pianola,
the standard player. The first complete piano;
playable either by the non-musician by means
of perforated music rolls, or by the pianist
by hand, at will.
The METROSTYLE, while enabling one
to render any composition in accordance
with an authoritative interpretation, allows,
with equal ease, individual expression. It
is also invaluable in that it enables anyone
to play artistically an unfamiliar composition
at first sight, even without any knowledge of
music. Found only in the Pianola.
Pianola Piano Prices, $550 to $1,000. All makes of
pianos taken in exchange at a fair valuation. A small
down payment places the instrument in your possession
at tier, with monthly remittances thereafter.
