HEAVY FIEE LOSSES I Vil
Losses Here Exceed Any
Four Countries of Eur
ope, Says Merrill.
New York, N. Y Dec 14. The work
of the National Fire Protection associa
tion was despribed by "YV. H. Merrill, of
Chicago, president of the associationcf
Chicago, president of (the organization,
in an address delivered before the Na
tional "Association of Cement Users at
its seventh annual convention in Madi
son Square Garden. "The National Fire
Protection association," said Mr. Mer
rill, "stands for conservation of the
created resources of America." He gave
figures to show the enormous annual .
.Eire losses in the United States and
told how the association was educating
the public to prevent these losses.
"The average annual loss by fire in
the United States in the past ten years
has been over $200,000,000, and during
the past five years has averaged over
$250,000,000 An average loss for the,
last five years of $250,000,000 means a
. loss of about $30,000 for each hour. It
exceeds the revenue of the national i
postoffice: it is greater than the pro- j
duction of gold or silver. j
"The annual number of fires in j
American cities average 40 for each .
10,000 of population, as compared to
eight of each 10,000 population in Eu- j
ropcan cities. The annual per capita
loss in Australia, Denmark, France, i
Germany, Italy and Switzerland varies j
from 12 cents in Italy to 49 cents in !
Germans, with an average of 33 cents;
in the United States the average is ;
$2.47. Berlin has -a population of 3,- j
000,000. Its average anntial fire loss is
$170,000. Chicago, .with its population j
of 2,000,000, burns up annually nearly j
$5,000,000 of values. "We destroy more j
property by fire than do any tour na
tions in Europe."

OF TWO ARE CAUG-HTJ
Two Italians Reported Held
At Benson tor Bishee
Bisbee, Ariz., Dec. 14. Late infor na
tion is to the effect that the two Ital
ians who killed Parker Bowling and
D. H. Faulk and fatally wounded Ern
est Duber Monday night in Brewery
Gulch, 'nave" been apprehended at Ben
son, Ariz. The wounded man, it Is
thought, will recover.
Bowling was well , known here and j
has relatives in Johnson addition. He ',
was 2S years of age and has worked f
at the Copper Queen store. Faulk was .
30 years old and was employed in
local mines. He is believed to have
relatives in XeT7 York.
The crime has excited the entire
town, being the worst committed here
in many years. The dead men were
horribly mutilated. One of the most
cold-blooded features of the tragedy is
the report that after having committed
the murders, the authors of the crime
went to a local saloon, their faces and
hands smeared with blood, and drank
heartily, and then escaped.
Charles Salo, a miner at Junction
Mine, had three fingers amputated by
the explosion of a cap. He was taken
to the Calumet & Arizona hospital
w-here he is recovering.

Taft to -Hold Meeting
in $few York.
New York, N. Y.t Dec. 14. The stocks
and bonds commission, appointed by
president Taft under the authority of
the railway act of the Jast session of
congress, to investigate and report on
the best method for federal regulation
of the issue or stocks and bonds of in
terstate carrriers.will reopen its sessions
in this city tomorrow, with president
Arthur T. Hadley of Yale, in the chair.
The commission seeks a means to cir
cumvent the opposition evident at
Washington when a measure was intro
duced at the last congress to regulate
the issue of railway securities
At the present hearing, members of
the interstate commerce commission
will give their views on the federal
control of railway securities, the testi
mony of the various state railway com
missions will be taken, with a view to
collecting information to be used as a
basis of the new commission's report.
The effort of president Taft to obtain
a bill regulating the issue of securities
by the Interstate carriers is the out
come of the vast stock jobbing deals
that have been perpetrated by unscru
pulous railway manipulators who have,
in this way, lined their own pockets
at the expense of the investor.
Among those who will attend the
hearings are "Walter L.. Fisher, of Chi
cago; F. N. Judson, of St. Louis; Fred
erick Strauss, of New York, and B. H.

F. JI. Wieland, 920 Wyoming St, El

mond Doan's Kidney Pills, as I found
that they live up to the claims made
for them. For a long time I suffered
from a pain in the small of my back,
often so severe that I could scarcely
get about. My kidneys were also dis
ordered and the secretions became un
natural and too frequent in passage.
Reading about Doan's Kidney Pills. I
thought they might help me and began j
their use, procuring my supply at
Kelly & Pollard's Drug Store. Tney en
tirelj' rid me of my aches and pains and
corrected the difficulty with the kidney
secretions. In view of the fact that 1
have had no trouble since then, I hold
a high opinion of Doan's Kidney Pills."
