Charges Tary from Little Things to Serious Ones. J $30,000,000 MORE Secretary- Shaw Has Other Plans to Believe Stringency. Will Accept Municipal Bonds as Basis of Circulation. New York, Sept. 30. Secretary of the Treasury Shaw has issued a statement in which he says that the banks will hereafter not be recuired to carry a reserve against government deposits se cured by government bonds. This will make available over 30,000,000. Secretary Shaw declined to discuss the financial situation further than to say that the treasury department would co operate as far as possible with the banks in their effort to supply the nec essarv credit to dn the iirmrpr-erienterl amount of business that is taxing rail roads and steamship lines as well as banks to the utmost. Mr. Shaw said he had never seen any good reason why banks holding a gov ernment deposit secured by government bonds should be required to carry a re serve against it. First, it is a deposit not likely to be called in a time of stringency; and second, if called the collateral will always sell for cash in excess of the deposit. He has since he took charge of the treasury contem plated relieving the banks of this bur don. file comptroller of currency agrees with the secretary, and therefore it is announced hereafter that banks will not be required to carry a reserve against government deposits secured by govern ment bonds. - The treasury has on deposit with va rious banks scattered throughout the COUntry from Maine to !nlifr,rn)n or -from Minnesota to Nejjr Orleans., in. juuuu iiumoers one nundred and thirty millions, against which the banks have heretofore been compelled to hold more than thirty millions of gold or its equiv alent. This decision will-release that much reserve and thirty millions addi tional credit. The secretary said he would still con tinue to make deposits of internal revenue and miscellaneous receipts (all available for that purpose) practically a half mil lion per day, as long as the situation re quired it and if the banks were unable to iTetain government bonds to secure the same he would accept the same general class of securities, municipal bonds, etc ,-aa are made available bv the laws of the several states for savings banks. By this it is not intended to loan in excess of Sixty-five per cent of the par value and nothlnir will be accepted that has not been i panic-tried and proven salable for cash on call. He said he should of course, de termine each case by itself. The secretary further said he would accept security of the class described above, for a portion of the deposits held by each bank now holding a government deposit and release enough two per cent consols to cover any increased currency that the bank mav desire to issue. He has recog- nixed the possibility of present conditions and therefor as early as1 iast July, com menced printing currency preparatory to i the needs of the banks . tq handle- the increased business of the fall trade and ! has on hand ready to be r dU vered an aggregate of about $25,000,000. This can be sent out at the probable rate of five mil lions a day if the banks desire to (Substi tute the other securities above designated for the release of the consols. This step Was contemplated when some months ego, he asked the banks holding government deposits to order additlonat currency print ed. The secretary's additional Telief there fore may be summed up as follows: First, the release of practically thirty millions of reserve, which will permit the banks to increase their volume of busi ness one hundred and thirty millions. Second, the substitutions of other se curities for consols now held by the gov ernment, on condition that the same shall be used as a basis for increased circula tion, which, if accepted by the banks will immediately increase the volume twenty or twenty. five millions and will add there to if needed. Third, the continuations of deposits to the limit allowed by law, accepting, if necessary security other than government bonds. Secretary Shaw will remain 1n New York today and expects to visit the finan cial district. - CONSPIRACY CHARGED. Parties Accused of Involving "Stratton. Estate for Profit. Colorado Springs, Cola, - Sept, 30. Counsel for the executors in the already famous litigation over the estate of the late W. S. Stratton have taken a step that is in all respects the most sensa tional yet taken in the controversy. Formal charges of conspiracy to. involve the Stratton estate in litigation for the profit of persons interested "in no way in the estate are brought against Messrs. H. M. Blackmere and C. C. Hamlin, two of the administrators appointed by Judge Orr, Blackmere being declarea to have already put up considerable money of his own Jn an! effort to carry out the terms of a deliberate and fraudulent conspiracy entered into with a view of speculating urn the will of the estate, A charge ia made that the court itself, the Judge of which is a brot5er-in-law of O. P. Grimes, the third administator to collect, has shown itself biased and prejudiced and grossly imposed . upon, and the demand is made that the action be taken out of this court and referred to the district court of El Paso county. - The. charges are made in the, nature of an. answer to the petition of the ad ministrators to collect as a result of which citations to appear In the county court and show cause for their refusal to recognize the administrators to col lect were issued on Saturday. Messrs. Tyson S. Dines, of Denver, D. H. Rice and carl s. unamDenain, or tnis city, executors named - in the will of Mt Stratton, were served with such cita tions and will appear in the court.

Thomas, of Den ver, is attorney for the administrators to collect appointed by the court and also for certain persons who Intend and have long intended to bring suit against the Stratton estate involving practically the entire estate. The administrators to collect, Blackmere and Hamlin are declared to be financially interested in a company which is declared to havo entered into contracts with youna Stratton by which they assure all ex- pense of litigation, guarantee him the SuO.ooo allowed him in the will and se cure the risht to involve the estate In litigation for. their own profit. The bond in the sum of $8,000,000 which was given by the administrators to col lect is made an object of attack. It is declared that the statutes of Colorado prohibit any bonding , company from writing a bond iq excess of half Its capitalization and that the aggregate capitalization of the companies who have written these bonds is but four millions.

AT THE PLAY LAST NIGHT. The Morey Stock company opened a week's eigagement at the Crawford last night, and played "Credit Lorraine" be fore a house filled to Ita capacity. If the Morey company can continue to produce as creditable a show as they did last night, they are worthy the patronage of the pub lic. "Credit Lorraine" Is too much on the heavy order, and the company as a whole should study their lines between acts. The acting of Miss Luella Morey 1s good. So are the efforts of Mare Bobbins, tha Topeka man, who plays hero and refuses to grin when acquaintances in the audi ence give him the high sign. Several mem bers of the company are worthy of men tion, others have a wooden appearance, but they give a show worth the money they ask.

Little children suffer terribly everywhere. What does good sense tell you to do ? You can't keep the human body on ice, and the drinking of ice-cold drinks does more harm than good because it stops digestion and chills the in ternal organs. The proper thing is to keep all impure and unnecessary matter out of the body every day, not give it a chance to sour and de- . cay in the stomach and, bowels, and poison the blood and the whole body. In this way you will stop all hot, feverish conditions, and keep your insides cool and healthy. To do it, use a medicine that is not offensive to the taste and not harsh and violent in its action.
