much of the buying was for Investment
by bankers and capitalists and by rep
resentatives of other railroads seeking
extension of interest and control. This
supposition cannot ba very strong in any
authoritative manner but it is manifest
to a tyro in market affairs mat speculat
ive buying plays the most Important part
In the market for the recorded transac
tions in many stocks within a short time
are sufficient to have ertected a control
of the properties several times over if
they had represented in any considerable
proportion genuine transfers of the
shares traded in. There has been enor
mous profit taking at every stage of the
advance and this is adduced as evidence
of the health of the market and as show
ing a process of digestion of long stock.
But it is to be oorne In mind that the
taking of profits involves a buyer at u-e
high level as well as a seller. No ade
quate judgment can -e formed - u-e
health of the market until the character
of these buyers, who are the present
holders, becomes better known. This can
only be by a considerable reduction in
prices. So far as the baying has been
by investors who are satisfied with toe
return on the money they pa-a for stocks
or wlio will hold them for purposes of
control or in the confidence that they will
increase'ln value, there is no danger to
be apprehended from a relapse in prices.
But if the buyers who -ave afforded
profits to the alert professional operat
ors are more widely scattered speculat
ors who have bought with borrowed
money on a margin with the purpose to
sell out a higher evel at a profit, it is
easv to see that the market's technical
position is much weakened as a result of
the week's happenings in the stock mar
ket Such holders lack both the skill
and the resources to protect their hold
ings by supporting prices either by confi
dent buv lng or offerings or manipulation.
An extensive reaction wipes out their
margins and uncovers stop loss orders
which may demoralize a market which
is overloaded with such speculative long
Such a condition is feared in the pres
ent market and the prices are considered
unjustifiably high. But so long as the
buying continues on the present large
scae, however speculative its character
may be, prices will continue to advance
as a matter of course. The continued
cheapness and abundance of money fos
ters the speculation and it is considered
improbable that it will receive any con
siderable check while the resources of
the money market last. The quarterly
disbursements of Interest and dividends
have afforded relief to the money mar
kets all over the world this week. In
New York, the purchase of short term
government bonds for the sinking fund
by the secretary of the treasury was an
additional factor towards relief. But in
fluences are at work both at home and
abroad to impair the market supply of
credits The subscriptions to the Ger
man loan of J73,U,000 have affected all
the great money markets of the world
and have undoubtedly occasioned In an
indirect manner the withdrawal of gold
from this country, although American
suoscriptlons do not figure largely in the
loan Paris has been a larger subscriber,
thoucrh, and has withdrawn credits from
London for that purpose. London has in
effect borrowed gold In New York as be
ing the cheapest money center, and ship
ped It to Paris in payment of obligations.
Looking to the future, it is expected that
the British government will offer its
$250,noonoo War loan for subscription dur
ing the latter part of April The eastern
movement of cash to the English coun
try is making heavv inroads on the Bank
of Fngland s reserve, this week's de
crease in bullion amounting to over $10,
000 ooo London financial . authorities do
not ex pect a large return flow during
April That the flotation of the loan will
lead to a considerable movement of gold
from Now York to London direct is there
fore to be considered as one of the proba
bilities of the future

Will Have Keiunins of Her Husband
London, April 5. The Echo says it un
derstands that in consequence of certain
unpleasant rumors Lady Cook, widow of
Sir Francis Cook and formerly Tennle C.
Claflln has applied to the home secre
tary to have the body of Sir Francis ex
humed. Sir Francis Cook died February
Friends of Lady Cook say that false sto
ries have been circulated by a person
not related to Sir Francis, but who was
disappointed at not being remembered in
the will, Lady Cook desires that the ex
act cause of her husband's death, which
was senile decay (he was S4 years old at
the time of his death), shall be officially
certified to, so that hereafter, In the
event of her death, nothing can be al
leged against her. The relations between
Lady Cook and her late husband's fam
ily are quite cordial. Lady Cook, who
Is living In Kensington, London, made
the following statement to a representa
tive of the Associated Press this evening:
'Since the death of my husband there
has come to my knowledge a very thor
oughly laid plan, concocted before his
death, to attack his reputation for the
purpose of blackmail. It was about to
be put into execution when he died.
"Some parties to the conspiracy ex
pected to secure a large amount of
money during his life. His somewhat
sudden end prevented a fullfillment of
these hopes. The conspiracy reached a
culmination by the circulation of rumors
that Sir Franc's died an unnatural death
and owed his demise to me, the conspira
tors hoping in this fashion to blackmail
"Had I not ben a woman of world rep
utation, I could have afforded to let these
calumnies die. My own health also is
extremely poor. Should I die now these
lies might go on forever. I have therefore
resolved to refute them now. I propose
to go to the full limit of an autopsy if
necessary, in order that the world may
know how baseless these stories are.
Harrowing as it is, I shall not flinch. My
husband was beloved by me and 1 by him
and these inlquitious slanders shall be
stamped out if it costs me all the cour
age and wealth I have in the world. In
this I have the full co-operation of all
my step-children."

Annie Gould Js Now Under French
New York, April 4. The appellate di
vision of the supreme court handed down
a decision today dissolving the injunction
in the case of Anton J. Ditmar against
George J Gould et al , trustees under the
will of Jay Goujd. The case was before
the court of appeals from an order by
Justice Beach continuing an injunction
granted by Justice Fitzgerald, which lim
ited the amount to be paid to the Coun
tess De Castellane to $200,000 a year pend
ing the trial of the motion.
Charles A Gardiner, attorney for the
Gould trustees, said of the decision:
' The Ditmar case involves nearly 2,000,
000 francs, and is in many respects a test
case On the points of law now decided
in our favor additional claims aggregat
ing nearly is,000,0u0 francs depend."
Ex-Judge John A. Dillon, counsel of the
Gould trustees, said-
' The majority of the court held that the
party substantially interested here is
Countess Castellane; that the complaint
showed on its face that she was without
the jurisdiction of the state of New
ork and within the jurisdiction of the
Republic of France, and that they could
not obtain service upon her within the
state of New lork. that in the absence
I of service of process upon the Countess
De Cattellane in the state of New York
the courts of New York had and could
have no jurisdiction to determine either
New York, April 4. There were at least
two incidents during today's cross exam
ination of Charles jj Jones, the valet
secretary of Millionaire illiam Marsh
Rice, which rose above the ordinary, one
was a remark made by Justice J erome
who presides at the hearing, and which
probably shows why Lawyer Patrick, ac
cused with Jones of the murder of the
former Texan, has all along taken the
accusations of Jones against himself
with a demeanor almost bordering on
Attorney Moore, for the defense, had
asked that when the hearing closed for
the day it not be resumed until Tuesday
Justtice Jerome seemed willing and then
added: "It is necessary that Jones' tes
timony as to this murder should be cor
roborated. He being a self-confessed ac
complice, his testimony alone is not
enough upon which to hold Patrick."
Attorney Moore tersely adde to this:
"We understand that, and we suppose
the district attorney does, too."
Tonight those who are watching the
case clesely are wondering what corrobo
rative testimony the state will Introduce
to sustain the claims of Jones. The other
incident brought out in the clearest light
the indomitable nervo of Patrick. In the
face of the reiterated story of Jones that
Patrick had Instigated the forgeries and
the actual muruer, the latter ttoo. his
place in the court pproceedings with the
utmost nonchalance. At one point it be
came necessary that a statement made
by Jones be read, and it was given Into
the hands of one of the counsel for the
defense for that purpose. This was the
statement in which the valet claimed
Patrick killed Rice and which he has
since denied. The reader hesitated and
stumblea on the written words. Suddenly
Patrick spoke up, exclaiming: "Here, I
guess J. can make it out; I'll read it."
This was agreeu to and in a loud, clear
voice he read:
" P' got a towel and a spongue and
saturated the sponge with a colorless
liquid he had In a bottle. Then he went
into the room where 'R' lay in bed. I,
(Jones) was not In the room but opened
the door and peeped in.
" P" was standing over R' with the
cone-shaped towel In his hand, and he
pressed it down over 'R's' race." Patrick
was still reading with no show of emo
tion when Justice Jerome ordered a re
cess for luncheon.
The "P's" and "R's" in the statement
stand for Patrick and Rice. At another
point in tne proceeding Justice Jerome
gave his estimate of Jones with charact-
erstic terseness. Attorney Moore h id
been raking the witness with questions '
all tending to bring out the valet s lyintr
propensities. He showed that Jones had '
lie dto and deceived his own father when mny aiaddcn Ha Arrnnccd Match

from entering upon his term of impris

suprome court issued a mandate a month
ago refusing a ne wtrial for Sampson
and ordering the sheriff to take him to
the penitentiary at once. Shortly after
noon today Judge Gibbons granted a
writ of habeas corpus fcr Sampson, sob
ting his hearing forf tomorrow. The
writ was rushed over to the county jail
but the deputy sheriff and hte prisoner
had already departed and a wild race in
a cab thruogh the downtown streets to
the Union depot was without result as
the train had use left Sheriff Mager
staff was then hunted for, llnally found,
and the writ served on him. The long
distanoo telephone to Joliet was caled
into use, the warden of tho prison sum
moned to the wire and requested to stop i
the deputy and his prisoner at the door i
on their arrival this afternoon j
Sampson's fight for liberty has been al
most as remarkable as that of Former
Banker E S Drever and every legal re
source has been used to prevent his im

with the remark: "This witness is a

contempt, but I won t allow you to in

"Washington. April 4. The first annual
report of the Philippine civil service
board was received here today. It says
the civil service act passed before the
organization of the board Is so explicit
that many important questions which
otherwise would have arlben In the prepa
ration of the rules were solved by the
passage of the act. The act makes dis
loyalty to the United States as the su
preme authority of the islands a com
plete disqualification for holding office.
Everyone examined must first take the
oath of loyalty. An amendment to the
act made January 28, last, to take effect
April 1, declares all persons In arms
against the United States In the Philip
pines and all persons aiding or abetting
them are ineligible to hold office. A min
imum ago limit of 18 ear8 and a maxi
mum of 40 years Is fixed for the lowTer
grades. The act provides for the ultimate
classification of all positions In the ser
vice from laborers to heads of bureaus
and offices, and the board is empowered
to determine tne efficiency of present and
future government employes. The classi
fication of policemen, firemen and guards
at penitentiaries and prisons has been
postponed until there are fewer disturb
ing elements in the Islands. This is in
line with the opinion of the military gov
ernor that the present svstem of select
ing these employes be not departed frccn
Owing to the urgent need of securing
teachers without delay and the larg-
number required these positions were ex
cepted from the provisions of the civil
sorvico act. It is believed that conditions
in the near future will warrant their in
clusion. The selection of skilled and un
skilled laborers has been left to the heads
of the several departments or officers
with certain conditions as to certifying
the facts on which any removals may be
based "V nils it is beaevea that the
board will in time find it adv isabble to ac
cept applications for employment as
laborers and to subject applicants of fit
ness, it is not seen how, under existing
conditions, this can be done.
The question of ascertaining the fitness
of employes now in the service will be
considered by the board at the earliest
practical date At the beginning of the
civil administration, says the report, it Is
essential that tho service should not be
embarrassed by the presence of Incompe
tent emploes The act. while giving
preference to natives and soldiers, still
safeguards the service by requiring tnat
they shall pass their examinations suf
ficiently high to have their names certi
fied for appointment. The report says
1 that natives found to have the capacity
I for positions now held by Americans
j should be advanced a3 rapidly as prac
j ticable.

On I'latt Amendment to the Cuban
Havana, April 4. The so-called Radical
element in the Cuban conatituttional con
vention Including Juan Gomez. Portundo,
Aleman ana Manduley. h!d a conference
today with Governor General Wood re
garding the Piatt amendment. General
Wood said that the United States govern
ment intended to deal justly and honest
ly by the Cubans, and had no desire to
retain possession of the Island
He pointed out that the Piatt amend
ment was drawn up primarily with the
view of protecting a weak nation araint
outsiders, as well as against internal
strife and would not Interfere with
Cuban independence. He explained that
the Washington Interpretation of clause
III of the scheme of relations was thai
the United States claimed the right to
intervene solely for the purpose of pre
serving the independence of the island,
maintaining an adequate force to protect
life, property and individual liberty and
complete the obligations imposed by the
treaty of Paris upon the United States.
He expressed the opinion, that In draw
