ACCURACY AND PUBLICITY
PROVE8 TO BE A POPULAR
Prompt Response to Bold Move of
President Vail "Accuracy" Reduc
ed Western Union's Surplus $13,
000,000. "Publicity" Restored Con
fidence and Its Stock Want Up.
Are the great financiers of the
country beginning to see a new light?
Timo was, until recently In fact, when
the men at the head oi the big cor
porations "kept their business to
themselves," as far as the law would
allow. Capable men at the head of the
big concerns, long realized the weak
ness of their position, but what was
needed obviously, as in nil great re
forms, was an unmistakable occasion
and a courageous man. The occasion
arose In the purchase of the Western
Union Telegraph company by the
American Telephone and Telegraph
company, and the man appeared in
Theodore N. Vail, President of the
It was last December when public
announcement was made that the
Gould holdlugs of Western Union had
been taken over by the Telephone
On account of the high esteem In
which the management of the tele
phone company Is so genernlly held,
great things were predicted as a re
sult of the absorption of Western
Union. By the press of the country
the "deal" was moat favorably com
mented on. It being widely pointed
out that under the direction of such
men ns Theodore N Vail and his as
sociates, the telegraph company was
bound soon to work Itself Into a po
sition where It could offer the public
far more efficient service than It had
ever before been able to offer.
nut a very few months had elapsed
when It became apparent to the new
management that a modern and up-to-date
appraisal of the company's
assets would make possible a far
greater degree of efficiency of oper
ation. "Here," they said to them
selves, "we've bought control of this
property and we know It's Immensely
valuable, but we don't know Just
how valuable. These appraisals ol
real estate and securities owned were
made a long time ago. If we have
a complete inventory made of every
thing we've got we can announce thi
facts to tho public, start a new set of
books, and begin our responsibility
to stockholders right there."
How Inventory Was Taken.
The most expert accountants and
appraisers to be had were put at the
task. Their labors lasted over eight
months. Their report and Its publi
cation by the company marks an ep
och In finance.
It began by recommending an ad
Justment of the difference between
the appraised and book values by a
charge of $6,595,089 against sur
plus. Book values of securities held
were reduced to market values, bad
and doubtful accounts were "charg
ed off." an allowance of $2,000,000
was made for "depreciation," anothei
of $500,000 for "reserve," nnd so on
until the old surplus of $18,8G7,00C
came down to $5,13B,000.
It required courage, the publication
of this statement to stockholders, say
Ing In effect: "The property of
your company has been reval
ed: the surplus Isn't nineteen mill
Ions, as you have been led to be-
i lleve. but five millions " hut II vm
the truth, and President Voll did not
flinch. "Accuracy and publicity," he
declared, was essential. "The stock
holder has a right to know. The
shares of this company are scatter
d from one end of the Union to the
other. This is more than a private
corporation. It is a great national
enterprise. The public is entitled to
The report was ordered published
forthwith. Financiers of the old
school nnd speculators generally were
aghast. What would happen? Would
the bottom drop out of Western
Union when the shareholders realiz
ed that their propetry was worth
$13,000,000 less than they had sup
posed? But the amazing thing
happened. The stock went up and
stayed up. The public had respond
ed to this remarkable display of
frankness and confidence; to the new
motto, "Accuracy and Publicity."
The full significance of the action
of the new board Is stated concisely
by Harper's Weekly In these words:
"Is this policy of publicity and of
open handed deullng with sharehold
ers and public the forerunner of &
Bimllar movement on the part of oth
er big corporations? Certainly It Is
to be hoped that It la. In the case
Of these big companies, dependent
upon public patronage and doing busi

there be any question of the right of
the people to know?

it is recognized now In this epochal
ict on the part of the telephone and
telegraph interests. It Is the dawn
sf a new era In corporation finance."

Sixteen Die in Prize Ring.
New York. In nil the history of the
prize fighting game from Tom Cribb's
time down to the present, there has
not been recorded in a single year any
thing approaching the number ol
deaths directly due to boxing contests
that have occurred thus far this sea
son. The death at Presque Isle, Maine
of Billy Dunning, one of the few box
ers that could point to a draw with
Jack Johnson, world's champion
heavyweight, made the sixteenth fa
tality of the prize ring in 1910, while
there are at least two other boxers
now lying at death's door In hospitals,
including the veteran, Andy Daly, fa
vorite ten years ago.
Boy Aviator Dashed to Death.

boy of this city, plunged 70C
feet to his death Saturday afternoon
In an aeroplane of his own construe

ing with air craft for some time, but
had kept his researches a secret and
very few people knew of his inven
tlon. His machine was unique by rea
son of the fact that it was probably
the first electric propelled aeroplane
in which an aviator ever made a
flight. His parents knew nothing ol
his proposed flight.

twenty-five socialists accused of plot-

School Teaching in Germany.
Berlin. In many parts of the coun
try rats are treated as though they
were diseases, and the official rat
catcher has to be called In whenever
one appears. In a small town the
local school mistress gave the required
notice as to the appearance of a rat,
but the official ratcatcher was away
on his holiday. She was therefore re
quired to feed the rat until he could
return and attend to It, and evident
ly got Into sad legal trouble by going
away for her own holiday and allowing
the rat to starve.

IS. EDDMS DEMI
FOUNDER AND LEADER OF THE
CHRISTIAN SCIENCE CHURCH
SUCCUMBS TO PNEUMONIA.
Surrounded by Members of Her House
hold When the End Came, But
No Final Message Was Left
to Her Followers.
Boston. Mrs. Mary Baker Glover
Eddy, discoverer and founder of thi
Christian Science, is dead. An
nouncement of the passing of the ven
erable leader, which occurred late Sat
urday night at her home at Chestnut
Hill, was made at the morning service
of the Mother church in this city Sun
day. "Natural causes," explained the
death, according to Dr. George L.
West, a district medical examiner,
who was summoned a few hours after
Mrs. Eddy passed away. Later Dr.
West added that the more immediate
cause probably was pneumonia.
The news of Mrs. Eddy's death was
made known simultaneously by Judge
Clifford P. Smith, first reader of the
Mother church, at the close of the.
morning service, and by Allied Fnrlow
3f the Christian Science publication
committee, in a statement to the press.
"She had been Indisposed for about
nine duys," Bald Mr. Farlow's state
ment, "but had been up and dressed,
and as late as Thursday transacted
some business with one of the officials
of the church. She took her dally aft
ernoon drive until two days before
death. Saturday night she fell quietly
asleep and ti.ose around her could at
first hardly realize that she had gone.
Her thought was clear until the last,
and she left no final messages.
"No physician was in attendance,
but she had the assistance of students
who comprised her household.
Mrs. Kddy was 89 years old. She
was married three times, but divorce
severed one of these unions.
A fall on the ice, from which she
said she recovered In one day, led to
her promulgation of Christian Science.
At this period she had become con
siderably Impressed by the teachings
of Dr. Qulnby, a mesmerist, although
she afterward denounced them. By
degrees Christian Science grew until
it spread over the civilized globe.
Mrs. Kddy will probably be burled
at Tilton, N. H. Her son, George W.
Glover, Is expected to start a fight for
her estate, although It Is reported he
compromised former litigation by ac
cepting a trust fund of $250,000. Her
adopted son, Dr. E. J. Foster Eddy, is
not expected to make any legal claim
for her millions.
Former Senator Chandler, Mrs
Eddy's counsel, estimates her fortune
at $2,000,000, and says he believes it
