reports, of unsettled conditions'' In
financial circles ay the result of
Prcsldon' -elect Wilson's two re
cent speeches, one in Chicago, last
Saturday and the other in Trenton
on Monday, provoked a good deal
of discussion in and about the state
house today. Tho president-elect had
read the accounts printed in the morn
ing newspapers and while he treated the
matter lightly, declaring that It amiiBed
him more than anything disc, he per
mitted his secretary, josvphVp. Tumulty,
to issue a statement calling attention to
the fact that tho president-elect had not
changed his attitude since election and
that he Is merely saying now what he
said then in his campaign speeches
Senator-elect Ollie M. James of Ken
tucky, after a conference with the president-elect,
declared that if anybody
started a panic, the Democrats, being
in control of congress, would appoint a
committee of investigation and find out
who was responsible for it. When this
later was reported to the president-elect
"Then they could find out by the in
vestigation whether I was responsible or
hot." - "- -
Secretary Tumulty's statement follows;
Attempts are being made to make
an issue of Governor Wilaon'3 speech
at Chicago. This is nothing less than
amusing. Covcrnor Wilson's attitude
on business and its relations to tho
government as expressed in his sev
eral .speeches since election is, as any
well informed person in the country
would testify, exactly the same as
his attitude before his nomination and
before his election. Every word that
Governor Wilson hact uttered is in
complete harmony with the principles
to which ho has strletly adhered
throughout his public career.
If there is any surprise at this at
titude It can be manifested only liy
thoeo who fall to realize that the
country lias elected to the presidency
an honest and fearless man who
means exactly what he says.
JOSEPH P. TUMULTY,
Secretary to Governor Wilson.
In addition to Senator! James the president-elect's

T. P. Gore of Oklahoma and William .1.

This announcement comes upon a dcS

aistant to the president of the America
Utilities company, of Grand RapijS
which owns a controlling Interest In S

a conference with .T. C. D. Clark, gc

Thc local firm contemplates an cspc?

Twelve Miles of Mains. ?
It is understood that thc growth o!
thc business will call for- the laying oi
at least twelve miles of additional main
and other improvements to keep pace '
with, reconstruction, business section ex j
pansion and plans to provide the beat
possible modern service. .
When the American Utilities company ,
secured control of the local company last
April. Engineer Sehaffner decided that
tho plant and system was large enough
to accommodate the city. General Man
ager Clark was appointed at that time,
and commenced an energetic campaign
to better the service and increase pat-,
ronagc. As a result, now comes the an
nouncement of the necessity or spend

modern facilities and a vast system that
may easily be developed and applied to
serve the city adequately as population
and development demand for years to
Thc manufacturing plant itself, it is
understood, will be enlarged and Im
proved. One of tho changes in the
business section, which wus not antici
pated when the original - inspection was
made, was tho move of two big depart
ment stores and other influential retail
concerns to the new retail center at
State street and Broadway.
Thc coke proposition Is a big item in
the company's operation, declare officials,,
and Is growing almost as rapidly as thc

kit least 11,000 tons, whilo thc capacity
of the plant should be doubled.
