TO REORGANIZE New Stock Issue Part of Plan To Re Considered By Stockholders Stockholders of the Chalmers Mo tor Car coriMiratiun will meet In New York next Wednesday to de cide upon some plan of reorganiza tlon. What that plan will be can not be told now', alt ho tent at iv* plana have been made. If lh»--e carry there will he several new di rectors on the hoard in place of those now serving. Hugh Chalmers Will be elevated to the position <f chairman of the board, while an other experienced automobile mane fact urer will succeed M r . Chalmers as president. It 1* nlso believed that there w ill be a n< w .-to< k i.-.-ne. in creasing the capital from s3,<K>o,"'K) to $14,000,000 If the present idea prevails a group of New York bankers beaded by J S Hnche \ Company will con trol the finance -of the corporation and several representatives of me financiers will he on the boa r d. It |s believed that holders of the 2*!t 000 shares of underwritten by New York bankers last fall. w;!I have the privilege of subscribing to the new preferred stock at $m a share for the number of shares they Bow hold. It is also proposed to guarantee $3.50 annually on each share of the new preferred stock, which must be paid ahead of any other dividend disbursement. After that is pall the common stock will receive a simi lar dividend and if there should ■till remain funds for further divi dends the two classes of stock will ahare alike. Mr fhalmers, thru his serre*arv Thursday morning, said he could not add anything to the information on the proposal, declaring that such Information would be guesswork at best, as It was impossible to say what the utockhold* rs might do. MAY BAR WET PAPERS FROM DRY COUNTIES It is likely that Tvtroit publlca tfons which still carry liquor adver tising. mav be denied the rm 1 1 - to carry them to poin - in Mi<h tun that are now dry.

Obliged to construe. Thomas F Cashin, artlne postmas ter, has received i new bulletin bear! ng on the subject, which gi\es a list of the state* wholly affected by the order, which then goes on to indicate dry counties, hut the language of the order Is ambiguous The bulletin, however, says that Others will follow- giving more com plete Information. It Is likely also that the postmn« ter-general will instruct postmasters regarding the shipment by mail of liquor advertising into Ontario or other dry countries. While the law became effective on July l. the )oc: ! po'-infTVe has not held up any ip.xl?. but it is known that many publications, unless they change their system very soon, will be barred from the malls.
