ALBANY, N. Y., December 17. Tho
committee of bankers appointed by Gov
ernor Hughes during the monetary panic
to recommend modifications of New
York manking laws, reported to tho
governor today measures which will
tend to prevent tho development of
such panics. Tho report in general ex
pressed tho view thai" in New York
city the state banks should maintain
tho samo cash reserve as national banks,
namely twenty-five per cent, and that
trust companies should maintain nlso
twenty-five per cent reserve, but that
tho rcscrvo need not necessarily be all
cash in their own vaults. A strong pre
sentment was mado against the practice
of promotors in obtaining control of a
chain of banks to further their own
ends. Tho report says that as Now
York is tho financial and commercial
cc'ntor of tho country, horc, cash bank
reserves must not becomo impaired. Tho
committee recommends that tho stato
superintendent of banks bo empowered
to voto tho establishment of any bank i
or trust company or branch or tho pur
chase of the control of ono banking in-'
stitution by another. Tho committee
believes that banks in New York,
"should not hereafter bo permitted to
hnvo branches unless they possess a cap
ital of $500,000 and wo think that
banks and trust companies should bo
compelled to furnish additional $100,000
capital for each branch opened." ,

JUST BECAUSE THE
OIL STOVE SMOKED
Guests at Dominion Hotel
Thought Fire Had Broken
Out Last Evening.
There was a fire scare at the Domin
ion hotel last evening just before nine
o'clock, because one of the guests had
left an oil heater burning in a room on
the fourth floor. Smoke was discov
ered pouring out over the' transom.
Someone yelled "Fire!" and there was
a rush for fire extinguishers and hose
reels. Somo of tho guests hastily gath
ered together their baggage and prepar-
cd for a rapid exit, while others of more
excitable nature hit the stairway with
out their effects. The door of the room
was broken in and the cause of the
smoke was soon disclosed, but not be
foro Howard Wayne, who was manning
one of the hoso reels, had started to
turn tho water on the electric bulb,
which in tho haze of thick smoke from
tho oil stove, ho mistook for tho fire.
No damage except that dono by the
smoko resulted. Owing to the early
hour, none of the guests had retired
or a panic would probably have ensued
when tho hotel alarm was rung.
A TEAR IN PRISON
Recommendation of Officials
for Suspension of Sentence
Had No Effect.
Details of tho conviction of young
Sam Morrow of Globe for a crime com
mitted nine years ago at Roswell, N.
M., are contained in the following dis
patch dated last week:
ROSWELL, N. M;)-December 14.
Tor an nllegcd crime committed when in
his teens, as a boy who had fallen into
bad company, Sam Morrow as a man
now faces a Eentcnce in tho peniten
tiary, and his wife back in Globe, Ari
zona, anxiously awaits his return nnd
his homecoming would be doubly wel
come, a$ a visit of tho stork is sched
uled in the near future.
When Morrow was a lad of nineteen
years, of age he was arrested in Eddy
county on the charge of horso stealing
and receiving stolon horses and was
locked up in jail at Carlsbad to await
trial. Ho escaped nine years ago and
went to Arizona, whero ho married hap
pily and was living an upright life at
Globe, engaged in tho business of con
tracting, when arrested on the old
charge hanging over him in New Mcx
John Van Winkle went to Globe
from this section and recognized Mor
iow nnd promptly notified tho officers
and ho was brought back.
Morrow secured a chango of venue
from Eddy county and at tho present
term of court hero ho was found guilty
of receiving stolen property. Tho pris
oner is highly connected hero and im
mediately his brothor-in-law, Leo Foun

potition was signed by eleven of the

PRICE FIVE CENTS
INCREASE IN THE
Estimates for Next Fiscal Year
Almost a Billion Dollars, But
Will Be Slashed.
AMOUNT MUCH GREATER
THAN OUR REVENUES-
Military and Naval Appropria
tions Proposed Will Get the
Knife More Than Civil Esti
mates, Says Tawney.
WASHINGTON, December 17.
Chairman Tawney of the house commit
tee on appropriations effected tho or
ganization of the committeo today by
tho appointment of sub-committees. At
tho close of the committeo meeting to
day Tawney dictated the following
"The committee on appropriations is
cbnfionted with a situation which will
require very material revision of tho es
timatcs submitted for public expendi
tures within the possible and estimated
revenue of the go vert 1 cnt. Tho esti
mates submitted at the beginning of the
last session for the current year totaled
$895,900,643 and the estimates for the
next fiscal year submitted at tho be
ginning of this session totaled $996,
949,238, or an increase of $100,9SS,465.
The estimated total revenue for tho
next fiscal year is $S78,123,001, while
the actual revenue including postal re
ceipts and revenues received the lait
fiscal year which total revenue was
larger than any previous year in the
history of the government, was onlr
"It can bo seen therefore, that on
the basis of estimated expenditures and
revenue for the next fiscal year the
expenditures as estimated exceed the
rcvenu by $118,82C,277. This excess
docs not includo the estimates for the
regular deficiency which amounts to
$13,137,896, for the current year, nor
does it includo any new appropriations
for spontaneous expenditures.
Must Cut Out Projects.
"It shows tho practical impossibili
ty of congress at this session in author
izing new governmental services or un
dertaking new projects, appropriations
tor which would have to be met out
of the revenue incoming for the next
fiscal year, unless other provision is
made for the meeting of such expendi
ture. ".From exaniination of the state
merit 'prepared by the committee it ap
pears that the principal increase in ex
penditures is for military establishment
including army and navy pensions. This
fncrcaso over current appropriations for
military establishment amounts to near
ly $100,000,000 and does not includo
any estimate whatever for new author
izations of such, for instance, as the
building of battleships. In view of the
almost certain decrease in the esti
mated revenues for the next fiscal year,
also in view of the fact that war does
not threaten the country, it may be'
stated on tho highest authority that
jongrcss in revising tho estimated ex
renditures, will at this session endeavor
to reduce most all of tho budget for
the maintenance of military establish
.ncnt rather than put the pruning knife
to civil estimates.
"Tho situation, says, Representative
Kicfer, "may mean that after we get
down to business, that not a single bill
calling for the erection of a public
building will bo favorably reported by
the committee. I am not prepared to
say that it will happen, but it may."

CHANGE OF VENUE
IS GRANTED IN THE
FAMOUS LEE CASE
Judge Navo yesterday granted tho
motion of tho defendant for a change
of venue to Pima county in the case of
J. W. Lee, tho Salt river rancher,
against the Salt Rivor Valley Water
Users association. The motion was
made and argued by Attorneys N. M.
Allrcd and T. E. Flannigan and Attor
neys L. L. Henry and J. H. Lucas ap
peared for Lee. Several hours were con
sumed in argument the attorneys for
tho plaintiff holding that Lee was un
able to bear the expense entailed in
trying tho case in another county and
tho other side contending thit they
could not secure a fair trial in this
county because of prejudice against the
Water Users association It is very
probable that the efforts of the asso
ciation officials to effect a compromise
will bo successful owing to the change
of venuo and tho fact that Lee has
been in poor health for some time.
