Message From Pope, Praisi
Possibility of Settlement,
Washington, Sept. 2.?Cardinal Gibbons
came to Washington today with
a message of hope for peace in Europe
to President Wilson from Pope
Benedict. It was a cablegram praising
the president's attitude and indicating
a belief that the United States
might be in a position to help in
bringing the European war to an ena.
After reading the message, the cardinal
remained for half an nour with
the president, discussing the possibility
of world peace. Hp. announced he
. had talked peace with the president
and told him of his gratification over
the acDarent success of negotiations
with Germany over submarine warfare.
He said prospects for peace
seemed to be brightening.
The text of the pope's message was
not made public nor was there any.
formal comment on it from the
White House. Unofficially, however,
it was said that the president was
much pleased with the message and
with the interview. It was understood
that the pope made no definite suggestions
as to a peace movement and
that his message was purely a personal
one to President Wilson and not addressed
to the heads of other neutral

Joint action for peace among the

this idea received no omciai connrmation.

both at the White House and at
the state department, with an expression
of his hopes for an early restoration
of order and government in that
country. The cardinal returned to Baltimore
size and shape of the new lake. Much
of its far-reaching, irregular -.surface
is veiled by whole forests which break
through its waters, a dying junglebarrier
to a knowledge of the inland
sea. When these obstructing forests
and bushes are at last destroyed by
the warm waters of* the flood and permanent
fringes of bamboo and other
semi-aquatic growths mark the line of
the shore, then the heretofore halfshrouded
lake will glisten, near and
far, in the tropic lights, while the surrounding
shores, each bay and promontory
and the islands, big and little,
will stand out sharply defined. It will
then be difficult to realize that this
lake is the work of man.

On many of the trees are great pendant

ant-like creatures doomed to slow star- r

have suffered the fate of being ma- .

After being seriously cut by Bill Bolin, 1
whom he was attempting to arrest at 1
his home on .the outskirts of the city s
early Sunday morning:. (Chief of Police r
Duncan shot Bolin four times, two of j

Mr. Duncan, asking him to put a stop *
to the row. The chief went to the \
scene, where he arrested one of the 1
participants, but when he returned for
Bolin, the latter grabbed him by the (
coat and began slashing him across '
the face with a pocket knife. With his (
own blood blinding his epes 30 that he 1
could not see, Chief Duncan drew his
pistol and began firing. Four of the 1
shots struck Bolin. Both of the men i1
were seriiusly injured. Mr. Duncan's

Washington, Sept. 3.?Definite steps
were taken today by the federal reserve
board and Secretary of the
Treasury McAdoo to extend aid to cotton
growers and to clear the way for

year's uncertainty and difficulty.
The board issued new regulations
authorizing federal reserve banks to
give special rediscount rates on promissory
notes issued by warehouse recepts
for staple agricultural products
with the restriction that member banks
which avail themselves of this rate
must not charge more than 6 per cent j
to the borrower.
Mr. McAdoo announced he soon
would deposit $5,000,000 in gold as an
initial deposit in each of the Federal
reserve banks in Atlanta, Richmond
and Dallas. Fifteen million dollars
more is to be deposited later. The
secretary said if conditions showed the
need cxf deposits elsewhere to aid in
handling any other crop he would ex
tend similar am.
The new regulations are broad
enough to apply to all staple readily
marketable crops, but it is well known
that the cotton crop is the one that
has given concern of late.
The board announced that the reserve
banks in Atlanta and Dallas already
had requested a rediscount rate
of 3 per cent on the 'Sort of paper approved
in the regulations.
Sum Sot Sufficient.
;The announcements tonight followed
meetings that have occupied the time
of the board and Mr. McAdoo most of
the last two days. The secretary's
proposal several months ago of deposits
of government funds in Southern
reserve banks alone was not ifavored
by several members of the board,
but it was not opposed during the re-1
cent discussions. Some members in- j
dicated, however, that as the total cot- i
ton crop probably would be worth
about $800,000,000, they did not think
$30,000,000 would go far toward handling
"I have concluded that the best plan
for extending aid to the cotton pro
aucers or ine s>ouin is 10 ueposu ine |
$30,000,000 in gold, concerning which L
made an announcement a short time
ago, in the three Federal reserve banks
located at Richmond, Atlanta and Dallas,
instead of in the member banks of
the federal reserve system," said Secretary
"Five million dollars will be deposited
immediately in each of these
3anks, making a total initial deposit of
>15,000,000. The federal reserve banks
lave the organization, the knowledge
)f local conditions and the powers unI
ler the federal reserve act and the
egulations of the federal reserve
joard, through which the proposed aid
nay be most effectively rendered.
"Today the board adopted regulaions
concerning 'commodity paper.'
Jnder these regulations all national
)anks and State banks which are mem)ers
of the federal reserve -system,
vhich may lend money to farmers or
>thers on notes secured by cotton,
jroperly warehoused and insured, at a
ate of interest, including commis;ions,
not to exceed 6 per cent per anlum,
may rediscount such notes with
he federal reserve bank of their dis
"To illustrate how the proposed reief
is available to the cotton producer;
he 'following is given as an example: j
V borrower asks his local bank for a
oan on his note, secured by worehouse
eceipts for cotton. If the bank is'
;atisfied that the note is good, it may,
nake the loan. If the local bank charges
he borrower a rate of interest, includ-,
rig commission, not exceeding 6 per:
jent per annum, and have a liberal
lote over to the federal reserve bank
)f its district, and the federal reserve
Dank may advance to the local -bank
:he full amount of the loan. The rate ^
)? interest which the federal reserve
Dank will charge the local bank will j
De sufficiently low, say 3 per cent, to
mable the local bank to make loans at
i rate of interest not exceeding 6 per
;eni per annum, ana nave a laoerai
margin of profit on such transactions.!
"The deposits of government funds j
in the South to aid in moving the cot- j
ton crop is simply carrying out the
policy adopted by the treasury depart-'
ment in 1913, when the first crop moving
deposits were made.
"This year the South is the only
r ection of the count] v where ; nvern-;
ment deposits would appear to be helpful;
but if it should develop that government
deposits are needed in any
other part of the country the treasury
utpaiuneiu win ue JUSL ub wuuug
extend assistance within the limit of
its available resources to other sections
of the country as it has been to
the Scuth." |
NORWAY MAKES PROTEST
TO BRITISH GOVERNMENT
For Forcing Their Ships Into British I
Ports?Question Has Become
Acute. I ti
Christiania, Norway. (Aug. 27.?Nor- p
wegian ship owners complain bitterly ! u
against the practice of English war-. 11
ships in forcing Norwegian vessels li
bound for Norway to put back to a it
British port. In many cases these Nor-1
wegian ships have been outside of the, q
war zone, and, on their being forced; p
to return to British ports they have j s
been the victims of German subma-! i]
rines. Had the vessels been left alone ; r
by the British ships they would have a
reached their home port safely. j A
Protests for Norway to England i
have been met by the answer that the j a
British government will hold itself i
responsible 'for Norwegian shipping j ^
that is treated in this manner, but.c
the Norwegian owners continue to see v
their ships destroyed. D
The question has "become especially ^
ftfutf ?irirp thp Vorweoian-Ameriean
line steamer Trondhjemsjord was g
torpedoed by a German submarine July 3
21. An English cruiser bad stopped 0
the steamer, put a prize crew on board
and directed the vessel's course to
Kirkwall, when the torpedoeing oc- '
r.urred. The Norwegian nress com
plaining against the British admiralty
assert that the steamer was loaded inj C
New York under the supervision of!
three inspectors from the British con-1
sulate, who sealed the ship's hatches, j
and among the ship's papers was an I
affidavit from the consulate to the ef- a
feet that the ship had no other cargo c
than what the papers showed. Aside r
from this, the Norwegian government c
had guaranteed that .possible contra-1 r
band would not be reshipped from t
Norway to any of the belligerent c
countries. Notwithstanding this the
ship was seized, prize flag hoisted and c
the unlawful prize directed toward 2
Kirkwall. The chief of the German c
submarine torpedoed the steamer be- c
cause it was bought from England last
December and that, therefore, accord- ?
ing to his .instruction, considered to 'be
an English ship. f
The loss of the Trondhjemsfjord i
amounts to several million dollars, c
only party covered by insurance.;
There was no contraband on board j ?
according to German rules. The cargo 11
consisted of 60,000 bushels of grain, ?
pork and tobacco. s
The loss of Norwegian ships since I
the war broke out a year ago amounts 1
to about $10,000,000, of which only four *
million was covered by insurance, the t
rest falls on the ship owners. The 1
majority of the ships nave been tor- ?
pedoed by German submarines, several *
without warning. 1
When a young man discovers complexion
powder on his coat collar he 1
is apt to realize that he has been up 'c
against another nature fake.
