That the public has never heard of this method,
r:;'.c}-ed flonWless to some extent by all Presl-
Sjgj, fast to the preatest degree by President
EoMcvelt, is due. 'o the reluctance of Senators to

k'ievtr In th« homely ada^e that two heads ara
better than one. anil It Is oft^n th« cane that one
of his advisers will bring to hear information on a
subject which will materially alter the President's
view, while, in other cases th«y will point out th«
possibility of a wholly erroneous construction being:
placed on an executive utterance, and this will
lead to the section being practically rewritten.
PACTS NOT GENERALLY KNOWN
To th« few who are disposed to regard the Pres
ident as impulsive and self-willed the Bide of his
character which. Is shown to those on whom he
calls for advice would prove a revelation, and the
facts herein narrated are likely to come as a sur
prise to many who are unacquainted with the care
and hard work which tho President devotes to al
most every state paper.
Could sum.) of the sections of the President's
message, with thflr various rewrltings. revisions
and transpositions, be made public, they would
constitute an Interesting demonstration of the in
finite rains which President Roosevelt devotes to
jus official communications to Congress, as well
ns a remarkable revelation of the simplicity and
common tense of their author.
When Congress Is in ses-iun the- President con
tinually avails himself of the advice not only of the
members cf the Senate, but also of ?. i^w chosen
members of the lower oh amber. The conferences
during: a session to which half a dozen or more of
the leading Senators, tosatber with the Speaker,
the chairman ol tho Ways and Means Committee,
and possibly others. ar.> Invited, are numerous.
From the Senate the president usually asks Bens -
tors Allison. Aldrich, Hate. Sp* onpr. Kmx and
Cran<\ and possibly one or two others usually th*
chairman of the committee, which has to deal with
the subject discussed, If that is clearly defined.
From the House win roru« Speaker i- non and
Representatives Kereno K. Payne and Dalzell, occa-
Eionally one or two oih<M;».
Rut tho ess formal coriferences which th*» Presi
dent holds with leaders of Congress tire of almost
daily occurrence. Sometimes he will ask the opin
ion of almost every member of Congress who calls
«t Th« White Hnis<? on somo topic he is revolvins;
in his mind. Again, one or two members will be
asked to "drop around about 9:30 li the evening."
find there wjll follow an interesting chat In the
dent's library.
In these ways the President makes his deduc
tions forma his conclusions and determines on his
pol!e!(»F. and tho late-comer who proffers his un-
Hskf«i novice, largely because of the car«> which has
preceded a decision, fnniclv^s !J'>es away with the
Impression that President Roosevelt is fearfully and
wonderfully "set In sis ways," and that he cares
rot a whit for the advice of his fellow men.
WOULD SHUT KANSAS OUT.
Declared Not to Have Interest in
M.. K. § T. Land Case.
Washii Kton. Nov. 12. — In tha Supreme Court
of the United States to-day Solicitor General
Hoyt filed a motion on behalf of the covernment
to dismiss the case of The State of Kansas agt.
the United States for possession of th« Indian
Territory lands claimel to have been granted to
th» Missouri, Kansas & Texas Railroad, and
which ere estimated to be worth upward of
510.000.000.
The motion was based or. the contention that
the Btats of Kansas has no substantial inter
est In the case.
Th(» land covered by th<? grant was the sub
ject of much contention In Congress at the last
session, and the pending: suit was the principal
hone of contention in the recent campaign in
Kanra.s.
MANILA BONDS TOR SALE.
No Postage Stamp Fortunes To Be Made
Out of This Issue.
Washington. Nov. 12.— bureau of Insular
affairs cf The War Department baa invited bids
for a EJ.000,000 10-31 4 per cent bond issue of
the city of Manila. Elds are to be. opened
in that bureau la the presence of bidders on De
cember I:-, at I p. m. By act of Kress these
bonds are exempt from taxation. The issue is
to provide funds lor the purpose of continuing the
work of constructing an adequate water supply
and sewerage system for the city of Manila, for
which contracts have been let. and wihich' Is now
•sell under way. To prevent speculation each bid
must be accompanied by a certified check for 2
per cent of the actual amount of the bid.
These bonds will be accepted by the Treasury De
partment as Fecurity fcr deposits of the public
money of tlie United States In national banks when
ever farther deposits may be' made and may be
substituted for United States bonds now held as
security for deposits on condition that the United
States bonds thus released be used as security for
additional circulation when, in the Judgment of.
the Secretary of the Treasury, It Is desired to Btitn
ulate an Increase in national tank circulation.
NOT DIRECTED AGAINST AMERICA.
Bank of France's Rule Applies to All
Foreign Bills of Exchange.
Paris, Nov. 12.— The Bank of Franco informs The
Associated Press that its refusal to discount Amer^
Iran bills must not be regarded as directed par
ticularly against the United States. Tha rule ap
plies to all foreign bills to which lees than two
French signatures are attached. It is pointed out
that the measure was designed to protect the
French market, where money Is at 3 per cent.
against the demands of foreign markets, where the
rate is C to i per cent.
The Absociated Press also secured confirmation of
the offer of the Bank of France to duplicate its
loan operation to the Bank of .England ■■■ the occa
sion of the Baring failure, in 1890, when Jls,oj<>.<»}
■was borrowed by the Bank of England on Ex
•.•heoucr bills guaranteed by the • schilds. It
is ifot considered likely, however, that the Bank
of England, unlfss that Institution In extremely
hard pressed, will again subject itself to the criti
cism that be transaction evoked.

JUMP IX CALL MONET.
Bate Beaches 9,0 Per Cent—
Repairing Reserves.
With the surplus reserve of the Associated Banks
wiped out and a deficit shown of $1,514,125 In the
required reserve, in Saturday's bank statement.
and with tho Secretary of the Treasury declaring
emphatically that in his Judgment the situation
did not yet warrant intervention on hi 3 part, the
banks naturally found It necessary yesterday to
call loans on an extensive- scale, as a means of
strengthening their depleted reserves. ,
The opening 1 rate for call money was 10 per cent,
and before noon the rate had been advanced to 20
per cent. The stock market had opened weak, in
response to a lower range of prices-from London,
and as the rata for money rose the prices of stocks
declined. In the late trading: money became easier
and a rally in 6tocks occurred, extending: to about
a point, although at the close net losses were shown
for most of the active ijsues. Th« final call mon«y
rate was 4 per cent, but most of the day's loans
were made at around 15 per cent. One of the in
fluences making for money stringency yesterday
was the fact that the first Instalment on the new
St. Paul stock was payable, amounting to $11.
000,000 or more; and that a large part of this money
was not loaned out again by the banks into which
it had boon paid.
The rise in t li*» rail money rate to 20 per cent,
tho highest level since early in September, aroused
general and animated discussion as to the sound
ness of Secretary Shaw's view that Treasury aid
was not at present necessary. leading financiers
were not unanimous in their opinions on the sub
ject. Some took the view that the current high
rates for money would bring in funds from all
parts of the country and that with some further
moderate liquidation in storks Wall Street would
get along without serious trouble until the time,
now not far distant, when the crop moving money
would begin to return from the West.
They also were of opinion that the release by the
Secretary at this time of large sums from the
Treasury would speedily be followed by th« ex
portation of cold I' 1 volume Other authorities In
sisted that the course of the stock market of lat«
demonstrated that there had been no over-specu
lation there, and that it would n««i be lons beforo
the tightness in the call 'o.m market would be fol
lowed by : isher rates on mercantile paper; the
whole trouble being in tlie Sub-Treasury system.
It st-emeii to be the general impression l.\te In the
•lay that the Secretary would, before the close of
th« week, announce som* measure of relief,
