ns n, result tho club will march with
probably not more than 100 men In line.
They object to paying the heavy ex
penses of the trip to Harrlsburg, and
many have Intimated that they would
go to the Inauguration only If tho lead
ers paid all expenses.
While the Pcnrose-McNIchol lieutenants
were trying to organize their marching
club tho Vare workers stole a march on
them. A committee representing the Re
publicans of the Vnre wards and con
sisting of Select Councilman William E.
Klnley, Magistrate George K. Hogg and
Representative-elect Fred W. Willaril

of the available rooms In the Bolton,
Hershey, Columbus and Metropolitan
Hotels In that city. The Penrose-Mc-
Nlchol forces will now have to be
quartered In tho smaller hotels and pri
vate houses. The Vnre workers have
also arranged to take three bands with
them tn assist them in showing to the
State their allegiance to Brumbaugh.
Senator Penrose and Senator Crow dis
cussed the Speakership of the next House
at a short conference held yesterday, but
postponed any tentative "slating" until

He told the detectives that he had been
out of work for several weeks and that
he was without funds to go to Balti
more. Burov, who Is 33 years old. left
the Detective Bureau saying he was going
to see whether his mother-in-law would
supply the money to bring his wife home.
The tears of Mrs, Burov, who is 19
years old, led to the arrest of Louis
Rawls. who says his home Is In Green
ville, N- C. yesterday, when the cpuple
arrived in Baltimore on the steamer An
thony arovas, from this ,city.
Passengers on the Anthony Groves
noticed the young woman, was crying
when she boarded the steamer In this
city, and the purser placed them In
separate? staterooms. Throughout the trip
the young woman seemed excited, and
it was this that led the purser to call
a policeman when the steamer docked.
The police say Bawls cannot be prose
cuted If U Is true that she Is a mar
ried woman. Burov seemed more con
cerned about getting his wife to return
titan prosecuting the man who is alleged
t have stolen her from him.

llniitlling of Credits Shows
linkers' Faith in Future
A phase ot the banking situation In
the United States that spells greater
things Is tho wonderful success our
bankers have had in hnndllnR the
credit system of this country with n
minimum of failures, and consequent
losses, during- the past four months.
It was tho greatest demonstration ot
faith In the future that bnnkcrs have
Their willingness to renew and carry
their borrowers and not press payment
of maturing indebtedness is tho now
feature that has wrought this change.
Believing, ns most bankers do, that
the Federal Reserve banks arc to add
strength to our credit system, It only
remains for the Investment bnnkcr and
all other bankers to co-opornte In
opening our exchanges to bring us
bnck to a condition far better than tho
0110 that existed July 30, 1014.
Investment Bankers' Association of
Tho creation of nn International Clear
ing House, where a settlement of money
balances between nations may be made In
times of financial stress without tho loss
and waste caused by the moving of gold
back and forth, was advocated by John
J. Arnold, vice president of tho First
National Bank, Chicago, at the Invest
ment Bankers' Association today.
Pointing to tho patriotism of the citi
zens of foreign nations In tho present
war, Mr. Arnold declared that the citizens
of the United States should follow their
example and unite, nut in tho defense of
our nation, but for the development of
our resources, which Is tho national Issue
here at tho present time.
Tho development of world commerce
In tho next century, Mr. Arnold asserted,
will be based on co-oporatlon Instead of
competition, as has been the caso In the
past. And by precedents already estab
lished the United States Is best fitted
to lead the world In such a co-operative
movement, he contended.
Mr. Arnold said tho time was near when
tho United States will bo tho financial
centre of the world.
Falluro on tho part of corporations
to furnish statistics and facts, according
to Charles Day, of -Day & Xlmmcrmann,
this city, is responsible for faulty laws
not being changed.
Mr. Day nt the afternoon ucsslon spoke
on "A Conservntlvo Policy for Public
Service Corporations." Tho policy out
lined by Mr. Day was based on tho ex
istence of governmental regulation.
"As n matter of fact," said Mr. Day,
''there Is little opposition to tho principle
of regulation; It is the uctunl results of
legislative enactments and commission
activities that most frequently occasion
dissatisfaction nnd open protest. Many
laws governing public service commis
sions nro faulty and Illogical; many com
missioners lack tho proper qualifications;
many decisions have been but Illogical
"While there has been a tendency to
look to the public for a remedy through
the correction of faulty laws nnd to the
commissioners, through a modification of
their view, wc bellevo the responsibility
rests squarely upon the corporations
themselves. They alone can furnish
those facts and statistics without which
all argument is futile."
Prlvato ownership and management of
public utilities, with general Federal
supervision to insure justice to all Inter
ested, was advocated as tho only equitable
basis upon which to devise a solution of
the public utility and conservation prob
lems In the United States by A. F. Frame. 1
speaking before the convention which Is
holding sessions in tho Bellavue-Stratford.
Mr. Frame, who is president of tha
Waukesha National Bank, of Waukesha,
Wis., presented in detail a plan, which,
if adopted, he declaied would solve the
"Six principles were laid down by Mr.
Frnmo as fundamental to the solution of
these problems. They" follow in brief;
"First. Public utilities Bhould be under
the control of the United States Corpora
tlpn. Bureau or the Interstate Commerce
Commission for Interestate enterprises.
"Second. In any corporation hereafter
organized, the Issues of stocks and bonds
allowed by the Commissioners having
jurisdiction should be limited to the
actual values of all moneys or properties
at fair values turned into the corpora
tion. Bonds should be limited to not over
76 per cent, of total costs.
Third. Non-competitive chatters should
be granted for not less than 9) years at
rates of service likely to pay investors
an annual profit of 6 to 8 per cent., ac
cording to the risk involved,
"Fourth, For any permanent Improve
ments or enlargements of present util
ities, or those Incorporated at a later
time, additional stocks or bonds should
be allowed to be Issued only on the ap
proval of the Commissioners.
"Fifth. Present outstanding stocks in
existing corporations not yet fully paid
for should be allowed to remain, with
equitable adjustment to be made by the
Commissioners when the corporation asks
for an Increase in stocks.
"Sixth. Extensions ot charters should
be granted every M years, aud rates re
adjusted for service, basing such rates
upou the varaae annual profits for the
last 30-year period."
The final buslnas session ot the con
vention closed with the election of offi
cers. A regular ticket was nominated by
the board of governors, and was unani
mously elected W a viva voce vote.
The omoers are: President, A. R.
Leach, of New York; vice presidents,
Frank W. Rollins, of Boston; Allen O.
