minister of justice, will be selected
as his successer, according tc
Sen or Gerostieta is said to have
been offered the portfolio of foreign
affairs, succeeding^ Queredo Moheni
with the understanding that he assume
the presidency. He has consented
to the plan, it is said, only
on condition that the deputies imprisoned
by Huerta last October be freed
He had many friends among tbe deputies
and never has been in sympathy
with Gen. Huerta's treatment of them.
Under the alleged plan, Senor
Gerostieta will hold tue presidency for
a limited period, turning it over to
Gen. Geronimo Trevinor of Monterey,
who on previous occasions has been
talked of as possible successor to
Huerta, and to whom, it is urged,
Washington could have no objection.
Gen. Trevino was the friend and
trusted officer of Porfirio Diaz. He
has kept aloof from the* politicial developments
of the last three years.
The release of 26 deputies on New
Year's day and the announcement of
the early release of virtually all tae
other deputies are pointed to as further
evidences of the possible truth of

New York, Jan. 7.?The federal reserve
organization committee today
concluded its hearings in New York,
having devoted three days to ascer!
taining the views of New York bank'
ers concerning the task with which
the committee is charged, of setting
' up the regional reserve districts provided
in the new law and selecting
' the cities in which the banks are to
' be placed. The committee, consisting
: nf s^prptarv McAdoo of the treasury
1 and Secretary Houston of the department
of agriculture, will proceed tol
morrow to Boston.
After the hearings .'here had been
concluded, Secretary McAdoo was
asked whether he had been impress-!
ed by the arguments advanced almost!
unanimously by New York bankers I
! who have appeared in favor of establishment
here a regional bank of,
, such size that it would overshadow I
all the others.
i "I hoDe." said the secretary smil-1
! ~ j
ingly, "that I am not as green as I;
i look." J
>o Conclusions Keached.
j Mr. McAdoo would say nothing1
! more, further than that the commit-!
tee had reached no conclusions. Those I
: who attended the 'hearings and lis- j
tened to the objections raised by the :
committee to the proposal for a huge
New York bank believed the most j
i probable solution of the question, in j
the light of evidence so far adduced,1
was the placing of three or four regional
banks on or near the Atlantic
instead of having one large ;
I district centreing in New York and ;
' including New England and part of
all of the Middle Atlantic States.
! The cities most frequently men-1
tioned in this connection were Xcw ,
York, Boston, Baltimore and Atlanta.
Washington and Philadelphia
1 were also alluded to often, but it was !
the opinion of a majority of the wit- |
nesses that Baltimore was entitled to
preference over either of these
Object to Washington.
i Washington was objected to be- i
cause no large commercial interests j
; centre in that city, although some of j
the witnesses said it would be of ad- j
I vantage to establish a bank there to !
be in close touch with the federalj
i board. Arguments in favor of Balti- j
i more rather than Philadelphia were
> based on the supposed advisability of
a more equal geographical distribution
of the regional banks, it being
j thought that New York and Philadel1
! yxua were ux wu nuoc - i
have each a bank. It was said also
,'that Baltimore, by reason of its lo|
cation and foreign and domestic trade
affiliations, would serve better than
Philadelphia the States of Maryland,
Virginia, West Virginia and other ter:
ritory north of the section which may
j be attached to Atlanta.
Doctors Form "Black List''
The doctors in Greenville did a good
thing the other day when they met
i nnd dpfidpd nnoii a black list to pro
tect themselves against people who
; can pay but will not. In all communities
there are those in unfortunate
circumstances who are worthy;
and all truly good doctors are kind
and charitable, but every community
j'has among its citizens a certain class
| who are able to pay but who are so
| dishonest they don't hesitate to chcut
' a doctor or a merchant or an editor
I or anybody. It is against that class
; the doctors of Greenville are to have
I the black list. The man who is able
to pay a kind and good doctor, but
will not, is the meanest sort of man
' in any community.
