Apollinaris "The Queen of Table Waters" "SLEEPING SICKNESS." Professor Koch Gives Details of His Investigations. Berlin. Nov. 18.-Profeasoi Robert Koch, upon whom Emperor William conferred to-day the title of excellency In recognition of his services In dis covering the origin and treatment of the African disease known as "sleeping sickness " has set forth in an official report the details of his prolonged Investigations in the victoria Nyanss region, lie supplements the general results by giving a sta tistical comparison showing that only about 8 per rent of the -sleepers" treated with an atoxyl in jection died, whereas most of the untreated "sleep ers" who arrived at the mission stations died. The professor has had difficulty in making exact comparisons, because he lacks accurate figures. The sufferers brought to the missions were usually In the last stages of the disease. Of those far ad vanced who were treated by Professor Koch. BH per cent died. Professor Koch's investigations show that the Glossina palpalis .fly. which causes the "sleeping sickness." subsists on the blood of reptiles and ani mals, and cannot live without It for over three or four days. The microscope showed that the blood sucked by the flies was chiefly that of crocodiles. The professor therefore recommends a bounty on croapdlle eggs In order to encourage the natives to exterminate them. This, It is added, will be com paratively easy, as the crocodiles have certain well marked breeding grounds in the Nyanaa district where the eggs can be collected easily. Professor Koch also si^gests clearing away the timber around the watering places near the forts and villages, where the natives gather, because the files cannot endure sunlight, ami seek the dark, damp undergrowth. The professor established two permanent stations for the treatment of "sleeping sickness," each In charge of one physician, and he has sent a third physician to Tanganyika.

(From The Trlhun*- Rurca-i i Washington, Nov. 13.— The President may urge the establishment of a postal savings bank system in the message he will send to Con gress. It was said by visitors at the White House to-day that he was seriously considering the question and iiad about come to the con clusion that a postal bank, would lessen in a. great measure the danger of a recurrence of "money squeezes" like the one now oppressing the country. Instead of placing their money in t-afe deposit boxes or hiding it away in old stockings, as is now being clone, they would, the President believes, put it in the postal sav ings banks and thus keep it in circulation. "The Postmaster General assures mo that there Is approximately $1,500,000,000 of money salted away in the safe deposit \aults and in private, hiding places," said Senator Bourne, of Oregon, who was one of the White House callers to-day. "If there was a postnl savings bank t-ystem in operation at least $500,000,000 of this enormous amount would be deposited in those banks to draw interest for its owners and to be kept in circulation by the government to prevent such periodical shortages of cash as we are now suffering. "I was talking with a prominent tanker of Providence, R. 1., the other day, and tip told mo that the present alarm was draining the banks of his city at a fearful rate. He cited an In stance of one woman who had 100,000 !n his bank. On the day after the Knickerbocker closrd in Now York she called at the bank, drew out every cent she hud in currency, and went right across the street to a safe deposit bank, where she put it all away in a box. After a few days the bankers pot together in Provi dence, I am told, and cam<- to an agreement on the matter. Since then they have not rented any more boxes. Intending purchasers are In formed that all the boxes are taken. "I am told that the trouble has not affected Massachusetts as hard as it has the other New England States, because the banking laws there are unusually strict and the people have confi- nee In their enforcement." DELAY FOR WOODRUFF. Provident Life Settlement Still Hinges Upon (retting of Notes. A:i rateable adjustment of the differences be tween K. 11. and O. F. Thomas and the syndicate of Philadelphia capitalists and insurance men who attempted to purchase from the former the control of the Provident Savings IJfe Assurance Society still hinges upon the ability of Timothy U Wood ruff to recover the remaining $213,000 In notes that the syndicate gave the Thomases and which they discounted. There was no material change In tha situation yesterday. Mr. Woodruff made his usual request for mote tinif> and the syndicate granted It. Mr. Woodruff saw Mr. Coyle and told htm that he was still using bis best efforts to recover tho notes, and Mr. Coyle consented to extend th.> time until Monday. Ijaur Mr. coylo had a long talk with Morgan J. O'Brien and Judge Bartch, of counsel for the syn dicate In Mr. O'Brien's office. None of the thn-e was willing to discuss this conference, except to say that matters ha.l not change.l in the last few days.

If the trkil is held in this county it will take twice as long as It did before to get a Jury. ' Thaw and his counsel had a long consultation In the Tombs yesterday afternoon, at which it Is believed the application for a change of venue was one of the things considered. Thaw is not ex pected to raise any objections to any such plan, for despite the insanity which will be alleged as a defence when he Is brought into court th« second time, he is displaying considerable acumen In his opinions of the case The District Attorney's ofiice. however, will make a moot determined effort to defeat any such ap plication Not only has District Attorney Jerome set his heart on the conviction of Thaw, but his office is reported to have in Its possession suf eieni new and Important evidence to make the District Attorney feel fairly certain of success, much more so than he was at the first trial.

Against that pledge it has received twice the amount in collateral of one of the two companies which are temporarily in the trustees' care, and this collateral it has taken to the Clearing House bank in which it is itself a depositor, the bank depositing the collateral with the Clearing House and ob taining against it loan certlrlcate-, in the usual proportion.

Representatives of the depositors' committees and tho reorganization committee <>f directors Raid yesterday that they were hard at \\.>rk on plans for the rehabilitation of the company, but that owing to the unavoidable delay in obtain ing details of the various loans and under writing commitments and lists of collateral of the company progress was necessarily slow. Tho depositors' committee, of which Samuel Untermyer Is counsel, held a meeting at the tatter's; office yesterday afternoon to discuss plans which might enable the company to re sume business. Nothing definite was decided upon, however. One of the Wall Street news bureaus printed a statement that none of the members of the Untermyer committee was a depositor.

In most cases th« mortgagees have not yet said whether or not they would call the loans. The New York Life Insurance Company, how ever one. of the largest lenders on real estate In this city has taken quick action to dispel any anxiety among property owners who have parcels which are mortgaged to the company by sending them word that the mortgages past due or dm In the. near future could remain as they are "In the last few months the New York Lite In surancn Company." Darwin P. KhiKsley, presi dent of that company, said yesterday, "has re newed mortgages aggregatlag many millions. It has no intention of calling In any mortgage dm- or due In the near future. I have only heard of one. or two cases of a small institution demanding the payment of a mortgage loan which was past due." As showing how the premium on currency causes a demand on the part of investors for the pay ment in gold coin of bonds, mortgages. .etc.. fall ing due at this time, the following story was told yesterday in a brokerage house: A young man. who Is estimated to be worth $5.(00,000. in looking over a mortgage which had become due. and which was payable at a certain trust company, noticed the clause providing for payment in gold. The mortgage was for $20,000. The young man took it to, the trust company and asked for a certified check for the amount of the mortgage, plus the current premium. This was re fused, but when the holder pointed out that the mortgage was payable in gold the officials fur nished the coin, which was taken to a safe deposit vault. Then the young man called up a curb broker, who sold the gold at a premium of 3 per cent. The young man received a certified check for $20. »« and gave the broker a fee of $50. It was said yesterday that many overdue mort gages were being called for th.- purpose of col-/ lectlng the amount due In gold coin, and then selling the latter to money brokers at a premium.
