THE AUDITOR'S PLAN WINS All Loan and Trust Companies Must Submit to Examinations Same as Banks of the State—Companies De nied Right of Auditor to Proceed Des Moines, Sept. 8.—Loan and trust companies whether they re ceive deposits or not, will continue to be examined by Auditor of State Carroll In accordance with an opin ion which he received yesterday from Attorney General Mullan. Audi tor Carroll directed his bank exam iners a month ago to also examine the accounts of loan and trust com panies which do not receive deposits. Question arose as to his authority for such examinations, which is con firmed by the opinion of the attor ney general. Several other questions concerning loan and trust companies were also submitted to the attorney general and his opinion on these points is in brief as follows: "Nothing in statutes which pre vents a partnership or individual from transacting the business of a loan and trust company. "The statute does not restrict the investment of the funds of loan and trust companies nor does it in any manner designate the character of securities in which the funds of such companies may be invested. "The authorities are somewhat con flicting upon the question whether corporations of the character of loan and trust companies can purchase, own and hold the stock of other cor porations for the better rule is that such corporations cannot purchase or hold the stock of other corpora tions. Loan and trust companies, like banks, may take and hold the stock of other corporations as security for loans made, or may take and hold the same in payment of debts due such companies but they cannot deal or traffic in the stock of other companies by buying and selling the Bame. Nor can they substitute for the stock of other corporations. "Loan and trust companies are subject to annual examination by the auditor of state in the same man ner as banks are examined by him. "There is no provision for the pay ment of fees to the auditor of state by loan and trust companies. Fees may be charged for examinations same as for banks. "There is no provision of the stat ute requiring loan and trust compan ies to make quarterly reports to the auditor of state. "The law relating to the examin ation of loan and trust companies, to the amount of capital which they are required to have and to the examin ation thereof by the auditor of state, applies alike to all' such companies, and is not limited to those which re ceive deposits. "Each stockholder of a loan and trust company is individually liable to the creditors of such company over and above the amount of stock held by him therein, and any amount paid thereon, to an amount equal to the face value of the shares held by them in such loan and trust com pany. "There is no statute or principle of public policy in this state which forbids a corporation acting as trus tee, receiver, executor or guardian." POSTAL CLERKS AT WORK. Advisory Reports of Officers and Board Received. Cedar Rapids, Sept. 6—The various reports of the officers of the associa tion and the report of the advisory board was the only important busi ness transacted by the national con vention of postal clerks yesterday. The secretary recomended the ap pointment of local organizers bien nially instead of at annual conven tions. that the position of editor of the Postal Clerk be elective instead of appointive and a more strict limit on representation. The report of the advisory board dealt with infractions of the civil service law and was re ceived in secret session. An alleged combination of the delegates of Bos ton, Chicago, New York, St. Louis, and Philadelphia to control the ac tion of the convention is being fought by the smaller cities. The test will come on election of officers. The mutual benefit plan will the University be discussed tomorrow morning. Will Run Good Roads Trains. Ames, Sept. 6.—The Burlington and. the Chicago Great Western sys tems will run special trains over their respective roads for the purpose of spreading the theory of "Good Roads," and its teachings. The Bur lington will put their train out about October 19 to November 1. The Great. Western will run theirs the first part of November. Mr. T. H. McDonald, secretary of the Iowa Good Roads association and the assistant professor of civil engineering in the Iowa State college, will accompany the trains. Boone Loses Some Prestige. Boone, Sept. 8.—Northwestern con ductors in this city, for years the di vision headquarters, have received notices that the passenger division will be removed from Boone to Belle Plaine next April. Some such change of divisions has been rumored many times, but this is the first time that tangible corro boration could be obtained. The con ductors are not willing that the change shall be made, and this city is hoping that the company will re scind its action. Safe Robbers at Meservey. Meservey, Sept. 8.—The hardware store of C. Enabnit, Sr., here, was broken into Wednesday evening and robbed of $200 in money and goods. The thieves made their entrance through the rear door, which they pried open with a crowbar. Very lit tle money was found in the till, but they succeeded in cracking the safe, Some $140 worth of saws for filing iron, and other articles were taken. No clue hap been obtained of the missing articles,. fJ A CORN CROP SPOILED RY POOR SEED Dee Moines, Sept 5.—"The Almigh ty could not raise a good crop of corn even in Iowa with the kind of seed corn the Iowa farmer uses." Such a statement made yesterday by Hon. John cownie, government crop reporter for the state of Iowa, set Iowa people thinking. Mr. Cownie backs up his assertion with an argu ment which seems worthy of consid eration. "The corn fields of Iowa at the present time offer an object lesson in regard to the value of good seed corn that would be of inestimable benefit to the farmers of the state, if given the attention that this all important question demands. "While there is a large acreage of corn In Iowa that gives promise of an excellent yield, there is also a very large acreage that will be very disappointing when husking is com pleted. These corn fields appear pro mising from the highway, or a rail way car, but when examined by a close observer who understands corn culture at its best, it is seen that the stand is very uneven, there being a large number of hills without a stalk, still more with only one stalk, a great many with two stalks, a limited number with the ideal condition of three stalks in each hill, a good many hills with four or even more stalks, which. is even worse than only one or two stalks in a hill for, instead of good sized ears, these thick set hills will produce only nubbins. "Such conditions are proof positive of poor seed, and the farmer evident ly used a good sized seed plate to make amends for his negligence in not securing his seed corn at the right time in the fall of 1904 and caring for it in a proper manner until the planting season in the spring of 1905." FIRE WIPES OLD TOWN OFF MAP Sigourney, la., Sept. 6.—The town of Lancaster, once an aspirant for the state capitol and a rival of Des Moines, was wiped off the map Mon day night by tne ourning of the Gilli land Bros.' store and residence. Two small churches and a couple of resi dences is all that remains of what once promised to be a metropolis of the state. Lancaster was the first county seat of Keokuk county. It is two miles southwest of the present city of Sigourney, to which the county seat was moved after a hot fight a number of years ago. In the early '40h and '50s Lancaster was a thriving place. It had several stores and was a stopping place for all stage lines running east and west through the center of the state. When the railroad came through Lancaster refused to pay the usual tribute de manded for promotion and the town was left off the line. As a result the iown of Sigourney sprung up and soon outdistanced its rural competi tor. The fire last evening was caused by a defective flue. Afire had been started in the store on account of the cool weather. The store and home of Frank Gilliland are side by side and both were a total loss with con tents. The loss is $4,000, with $2,000 insurance. Y0UN8 SCHAEFFER IS IN SIN6AP0RE Iowa City, Sept. 8.—In a measure at least, the long time mystery sur rounding the disappearance of George S. Schaeffer, son of the late Presi dent Charles A. Schaeffer of the State university, has been solved. His mother and sisters have found him in Singapore, India, where he is a non-commissioned officer in the Brit ish army. Some months ago Mrs. Schaeffer, who is living in the east, received information that led her to believe that her son had gone to In dia. She immediately took up ihe trail and followed it persistently, with the result that she has received a letter from him explaining his whereabouts and something about his actions following his disappearance. Whether he made known his motives for leaving so strangely is not known at any rate, no motives have been given by his relatives. Young Schaeffer's disappearance, Sept. 2, 1902, caused a distinct sen sation, not merely in Iowa, where he was well known, but also in Phila delphia, where he had located in the practice of law. He had graduated from the State university and from of Pennsylvania law school with honors, and his marked ability had already won for him a considerable measure of success in Philadelphia. His financial affairs were not entangled, and he had a comfortable competence for a young man nor could it be learned that he had any personal affairs to prompt him to disappear as he did. Wealthy Keokuk Farmer Killed. Sigourney, Ta., Sept.. 6.—Reeve Jones, a wealthy farmer residing near here, took his wife to the sta tion yesterday evening and placed her on a Pullman bound for Port land, Ore. Jones jumped from the train, slipped on the wet platform and was ground to death by the sleeper where he had placed his wife. Jones had several hundred acres of the finest farm land in this county. He is reputed to be wealthy. He had long promised his wife an extended trip and had intended ac companying her but felt that he ought to stay and attend to the farm work. He was sixty years of age. His body was cut. in twain. Died on Operating Table. Cedar Rapids, Sept 7.—William Bryant, a well known Marion horse man, died on the operating table yes terday while undergoing an opera tion for cancer. He was under the influence of ether. Falls Under Wheels. Cedar Rapids, Sept. 7.—Frank Bickert, aged forty-five years, of Cedar county, fell from a traction en gine under the wheels of a separator and was instantly killed.

Duriug the course of the lever the nerves are always profoundly disturbed, and when it is over they are left so sensitive that the patient has to be guarded against all excitement. Iu the toulo treatment then demanded, regard must be paid not only to buildiug np flesh but also to strengthening the nerves. A remedy that will do both, make sound flesh to repair waste and give new Vigor to feeble norves, is the most oouvenieut and economical. Such a remedy is Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People. One proof of this is the experience of Mr. Charles Worth, of East Vassalboro, Maine. He says I had a severe at tack of typhoid fever late in the fall which left lue very weak aud debilitated. My heart palpitated, my breathing be came difficult after the least exertion and there was nunibuess in both^hands. I suffered in that way for fully six months. As I did not grow out of it, did not in fact see the slightest improvement as time passed, I decided to use Dr. Wil liams' Pink Pills as I knew of some cures they had effected in cases like miue. "Almost as soon as I began taking them I could see decided improvement aud after keeping ou with them for several weeks I was completely well. I consider Dr.Williams' Pink Pills a most valuable remedy, and I am in the habit of recommending them Bishop Nile of New Hampshire, had a singular experience while at tending the recent Episcopal con vention in Boston. The Bishop, who is a very tall, heavy man, vas seated on one of the low settees in the public garden, and when he start ed to get up found that he had great difficulty in regaining his feet. While ia the midst of his struggles a wee tot of a little girl came along anu offered her assistance. The bishop ceased trying to rise, and, after sur veying the little girl critically,re plied that she was too small to help. The little girl preslsted that she could help, but the bishop was just as sure that she could not. "Weil," said the little girl finally, "I've helped grandpa lots of times when he was lots drunker than you are." Sure Cure at Last. Mouticelio, Miss., Sept. 4 (Special) Lawrence County is almost uaily in receipt of fresh evidence that a sure cure for all Kidney Troubles has at last been found, and that cure is Dodd's Kidney Pills. Among those who have reason to bless the Great American Kidney Rem edy is Mrs. L. E. Baggett of this place. Mrs. Baggett had dropsy. Dodd's Kid ney Pills cured her. "I was troubled with my kidneys," Mrs. Baggett says in recommending Dodd's Kidney Pills to her friends, "my urine would hardly pass. The Doctors said I had Dropsy.

Tokio, Sept 8.—Marquis Ito, presi dent of the privy council, has been stoned by mobs. Tokio, Sept. 8.—It is reported that there is rioting in Chiba, a town with a population of 20,000, twenty miles east of Tokio. The prefectorate building and the court house are re ported to have been burned. The government has suspended the further publication of the Niroku, a newspaper printed in Tokio. Tokio, Sept. 8.—Tokio was quiet yesterday. General Sakuma, com mander of the Tokio garrison, has is sued a proclamation warning the pop ulace against disorder.

Tokio, Sept. 7.—Rioting broke out her«t Tuesday night in connection with the dissatisfaction over the results of the peace settlement. There were several clashes with the police and it is estimated that two were killed and five hundred wounded. The rioting ceased at midnight. Police stations were the only property destroyed. Tokio, Sept. 5.—(Delayed in trans mission.)—The first turbulence at tendant on the popular anger over the terms of peace arranged with Rus sia took place today. Amass meeting to protest against the action of the government was called to take place at Hibiya park, but the metropolitan police closed the gates and attempted to prevent the assemblage of the peo ple. The municipality protested against the action of the police, and finally the gates were thrown open and a large crowd gathered and voted in favor of resolutions declaring the nation humiliated and denouncing the terms upon which the treaty of peace was arranged. The crowd was ser ious in its conduct, rather than angry, and the police handled it discreetly. The gathering eventually dispersed in an orderly manner. Later on, however, a crowd attemp ted to hold a meeting in the Shimino theater, but the police dispersed it. A portion of the crowd then pro ceeded to the office of Kokumin Shin bun, the government organ, and be gan hooting. Three employes of the paper, armed with swords, appeared at the door of the building and check ed the attack, and the police again dispersed the crowd. It was thought that the trouble had passed, when suddenly a portion of the crowd made a rush for the building, hurled stones and damaged some of the machinery. Several persons were injured dur ing the attack, but the police eventu ally cleared the streets of the crowd and arrested a number of rioters. The disorder is not general and the situation is not serious. Similar meetings have been held at Osaka and Nagoya, which in round terms denounced the government and asked them to resign. General sen timent throughout the country seems to favor reactionary measures, but it appears clear that the majority of the people will eventually accept the re sult of the peace conference, howevir disappointing It may be.

H., fciepf. 6.—The Russo-Japanese peace treaty opens with a preamble reciting that His Majesty the Emperor and Autocrat of all the Russians, and His Majesty the Emperor of Japan, desiring to close the war between them, and, having appointed their respective plenipo tentiaries and furnished them with full powers, which were found to be in due form, have come to an agree ment on a treaty of peace, the details of which are as follows 1. Stipulates for the re-estabiish ment of peace and friendship between the sovereigns of the two empires and between the subjects of Russia and Japan respectively. 2. His Majesty the Emperor of Russia recognizes the preponderant Inter3st from political, military and economical points of view of ITapan in the Empire of Korea and stipu lates that Russia will not oppose any measures for its government, protec tion or control that Japan will deem necessary to take in Korea in con junction with the Korean govern ment, but Russian subjects and Rus sian enterprises are to enjoy the same status as the subjects and en terprises of other countries. It is mutually agreed that the territory of Manchuria be simultan eously evacuated by both Russia and Japanese troops, both countries be ing concerned in this evacuation, their situations being absolutely iden tical. All rights acquired by private persons and companies shall remain Intact. 4. The rights possessed by Russia in conformity with the lease of Port Arthur and Dalny, together with the lands and waters adjacent, shall pass over in their entirety to Japan, but the properties and rights of Russian subjects are to be safeguarded and respected. 5.

The Manchurian railway shall be operated jointly by Russia and Japan at Kousang-Tcheng-Tse. The two branch lines shall be employed only for commercial and industrial purposes. In view of Russia's keep ing her branch line with all rights acquired by her convention with China for the construction of that railway, Japan acquires the mines in connection with such branch line which falls to her. However, the rights of private parties or private enterprises are to be respected. Both parties to this treaty remain abso lutely free to undertake what they deem fit on expropriated ground. 7. Russia and Japan engage them selves to make a conjunction of the two branch railroad lines which they own and operate at Kouang-Tcheng Tse. 8.

This article recites the situa tion of Russian subjects on the southern part of Sakhalin island and stipulates that Russian colonists there shall be free and shall have the right to remain without changing their nationality. Per contra, the Japanese government shall have the right to force Russian convicts to leave the territory which is ceded to her. ll.i Russia engages herself to make an agreement with Japan giv ing to Japanese subjects the right to fish in Russian territorial waters of the Sea of Japan, the Sea of Ok hotsk and Bering Sea. 12. The two high contracting par ties engage themselves to renew the commercial treaty existing between the two governments prior to the war in all its vigor, with slight modi fications in details, and with a most favored nation clause. 13. Russia and Japan reciprocally engage to restore their prisoners of war on payment of the real cost of keeping the same, such claim for cost to be supported by documents. 14. This peace treaty shall be drawn up in two languages, French and English, the French text being evidence for the Russians and the English text for the Japanese. In case of difficulty of interpretation the French document is to be accepted as final evidence. 15. The ratification of this treaty shall be countersigned by the sover eign of the two states within fifty days after its signature. The French and American embassies shall be in termediaries between the Japanese and Russian governments to an nounce by telegram the ratification of the treaty. Two additional articles are agreed to as follows A.
