The plan is by no means a new one.
It is the same that was worked by

Stop Professional Promotion.
At the sarce time he is looking into
this particular scheme. Controller Mur

f<-«ional promotion of national banks.
This is an evil that has grown to large
proportions in recent years and leads
to just such schemes as that now pro
p^E^d in this city.
There is a Middle Western corpora
tion organized for the promotion of na
tional banks and that holds the control
of between fifty and sixty small banks
!a the Middle West. This is only on*
instance of many in which the control
of a chain cf banks is held by one cor
poration or group of men.
Conservative bankers here look on the j
situation with considerable alarm. They

Gunboat Seriously Damaged in

Provincetown. Mass., July 11. — The
gunboat Castine, tender of the sub
marine flotilla, was rammed by the sub
marine Bonita during the manoeuvres to
day and was beached to prevent her
from sinking. No one on board was in
jured. Two of the plates of the Castine
were loosened. Her dynamo and boiler
compartments, betwepn frames 19 and

said to be holding firm.
The accident happened during a mimic
attack n n the <"astine by the submarines,
the Bonita apparently misjudging the
distance and striking the gunboat with
considerable force. The men on both boats
felt the impact and some were momen
tarily stunned. The Bonita escaped with

armor and the loss of a small section of

escaped from her homp on the third
floor of the East SSth street house by
climbing from the fire escape to th.p
roof, and sh<= was then at his office, a
nervous wreck from her terrible experi
ence. Whitney, he declared, was suffer
ing from a mental strain, a victim of
paresis, he believed.
The physician said he was called to his
office door about It o'clock last night
and there found Mrs. Whitney in a state
of collapse. When she recovered she
told him that she had just escaped from
her home, after being kept a prisoner
for three days and nights by her hus
band, a s:gn painter in the employ of the
Terrible Vigil Commences.
On Saturday morning Whitney had
told her that he was tired of life and in
tended ending his own and hers. He
bade her keep away from the windows
and doors, and then after he had care
fully locked and bolted every means of
egress the terrible vigil commenced. The
wife waited hour after hour in the ex
pectation that the sign painter would
fall asleep, and again and again, when
he appeared to doze, she started to
creep toward the hall door.
But on these occasions he forestalled
her by suddenly becoming alert. Then
repetitions of the death threats would be
made and the horror of the situation
continued to grow.
Dr. Goldsmith said that Mrs. Whitney
was too wfik and frightened to give n.
concise, and coherent statement of all
that occurred, and he said he doubted if
she could recall all the various moves
made in the apartment during the three
days and nights, but he said that it was
more than probable that the woman
fasted the greater part of the time from
Not until late last night <iid the hus

and tht-n clhnbed the remaining two

street by descending through the scuttle
on the roof of an adjoining house and
staggered to the office of Dr. Goldsmith.

had rallied Mrs. Whitney he hurried to

bell and pounding on the door for nearly

time to persuade the old man to open

informed him that he had brought a

Then followed another long period of
persuasion, but Dr. Goldsmith said that
he eventually induced him to join him
in a taxicab ride in search of mutton
broth, his favorite broth. The transfer

Understanding Is That Mr. Taft
Did Not Urge Him to Seek
It, in View of Expressed
Collector Loeb came home from Bev
erly last night after his talk with Pres
ident Taft i -d was met immediately
with the question. "Are you going to
run for Governor this fall?"
"It's a scorcher." Mr. Loeb replied. It
has been one of the hottest days I have
"But are you going to run for Gov

Mr. I»eh smiled pleasantly. "I gay«

The question of the governorship was
dismissed almost as summarily in Bev

political situation that received the moat
attention. The President did not urg*

Collector gave the President to under
stand that he was not seeking the nomi
nation and did not want it. The result
was that after a few pleasant words th»
subject was dropped and did not com*
up again. •
His Ambition Is Different.
It is understood that Mr. Loeb's am
bitions ran in a different direction, and
it would only be after considerable
urging that he would consent to run.
The urging has not yet been forthcom
ing. It is evident that there will be no
combined argument by Governor Hughes
and Mr. Roosevelt, for the Collector will
not be present at the meeting at Oyster
"I am going down to Sea. Gate." he
said last night as he stepped from the
train, "and I will not be at Sagamore

No. I don't expect to see the Governor."
Mr. Loeb laughed again when he was
asked if Mr. Roosevelt knew beforehand
of his visit to Beverly. ' J.-7C,

thing about it. <>f course I will se»
