7ts Relation* to Government — Might
Issue Asset Currency.
. WaFfcington. Oct. R.— Financial legislation will he
oae of the great problems with which Congress
will soon have to deal, and foremost among the
projects advanced in the proposed central bank.
It If believed that it will form the basis of the
legislation to be recommended *>>• the Monetary
•'A bank of the people and for the people" Is .*•«
definition of this institution given by George M.
nrynolfls, president of the American Rankers' As
sociation. in a recent speech in Chicago. He said
the people would be th« stockholder*, for any one
would t»e allowed to buy the stock. A email Inter
est on the investment would be guaranteed by th«
government, and any earnings more than sufficient
to pay th*» guaranteed Interest would be shared by
the government and the stockholders.
Political control of the bank would at least be
made extremely difficult by the life appointment of
the officers. Integrity of operation would be as
sured by ■ board of supervisors, appointed by the
President, the Secretary of the Treasury and the
Controller of the Currency, subject to the approval
of the Senate, for terms of at least eight years.
Thus the objection* founded on the history of Ope
old Tnitrd States Bank, that the Central Bank
might be perverted to political uses and he made
a powerful engine for the perpetuation In power of
one party, wouM be met.
It Is not intended thai i Ventral bank should
Fupport the credit of the nation. If th" govern
ment should need fund* it would be compelled, as
at present, to rais* money by the sale of 1,, nds
The sole purpose of this hank, according to the
views of Its a<svoest«s, would be to safeguard th»
business interests of the people in their private re
lation*. If more money for business purposes
should be needed the hank would 6upply it by
notes, and if there should be a surplus of currency
1- r'.ill times these notes would be retired rapidly.
Government assistance to the institution would h«
limited to depositing In the central bank all gov
ernment funds now in rational banks. The na
tional banks. it is hoped, would find compensation
for the loss of the use of these funds in belne re
lieved from their present burden of carrying the
whole weight of Responsibility for Increases in the
circulating medium, and in The fact that the cen
tral Institution would not receive deposits from ln
- The question as to bow business men are to be
benefited by a central bank Is sought to be an
ewered by the statement that the project Included
a provision for the accept an r>«» of good commercial
peper as a basis for the Issue of banknotes* This
paper would represent actual transactions between
solvent concerns and would be redeemed when the.
transaction was concluded. There would.be a rea
ronable coin reserve.
That this plan will meet with strong opposition
in Congresi is regarded as certain. At the rerent
bankers' convention in Chicago many hank afficers
*aid they regarded the measure as the opening
wedge for the destruction of the most profitable
part of their business, fearing that a central bank
would enter into competition for their enormous
.. discount operations. Possibly their objections can
in a measure be met by a recourse to some other
means of securing a basis for circulating notes.

Senator Aldrich Explains America's Attitude
to Officials in Paris.
Paris, Oct. E. — more optimistic feeling prevails
in government circles to-day regarding the ami
cable adjustment of Franco-American tariff rela
tions under the new law as a result of the »«
]>lanations furnished by Senator Nelson W. Aldrlch,
at Rhode Island, during his talks last week with
a number of the French ministers and other high
government officials. Mr. AMricri disabused the
minds of the Frenchmen of the idea that the ter
mination of the existing commercial asreement be
tween France and the United fitates six months In
advance of the agreements with other countries,
notably Germany, was in any way intended as a
discrimination against France, and relieved the
anxiety in Paris concerning the interpretation of
Section 2 of the new law. This the French be
lieved involved the automatic imposition of the
American maximum unk-ss France afforded every
minimum and every administrative concession la
her tariff.' It is understood that Senator Aldrieh
expressed the opinion that Section ; gave President
T*ft a certain measure of latitude, and that if
France accorded the minimum rate upon articles
In which the rr.;t«,j States was principally inter
ested. Mr Taft probably mould consider that
America was not unduly discriminated against,
within the meaning of the art. •.
Senator Aldrjch, who is now in I»ndon. will re
turn to Paris on Thursday to attend a dinner

Nine Mongolians Afflicted with
Trachoma Sent Back Home.
fFrom Th» Trihun* Rureau]
Washington Oet 5. — Commissioner General Keefe
of the Tmmigratl.n Service to-day ordered the de
portation of nine Chinese who are afflicted with
trachoma. They will return on the Steamer Mon
golian, which sai;*d to-day from San Francisco.
Eight others who have the disease in a milder
form were allowed to remain In this country.
An ineffectual appeal to prevent the deportation
of the Chinese was made to the Department of
Commerce s«nd Labor by Dr. Wu Ting-fang, the
Chinese Minister. lie asked that the men be per
mitted to remain for hospital treatment. Mr.
Keefe, however, advised the minister that their
treatment at the hospital would require consid
erable time, and It was doubtful whether any
treatment would be. effective in their cases.
He decided that they would have to be sent back,
and assured the. minister that the Chinese were
given the same consideration as the emigrants
of any other nation.
Prisoner Carried on Rolls Causes Department
fFrom The Tribune Bureau 1
Washington. Oct. fi.— The military authorities are
somewhat concerned over what action shall be
taken In the case of Captain P. c. Halns, jr.,
V. S. A. Although he is now in prison at Sing
Sing for the killing of William E. Annis, he is still
carried on the army rolls as an officer of the 30th
Company of Coast Artillery, with station at Fort
Hancock. New Jersey.
Since his arrest by the civil authorities Captain
Hams has not been receiving pay from the govern
ment and has been treated as absent from duty in
the custody of the State of New York. Ho has not
applied for leave, but at the same time ho cannot
b« held accountable as a deserter. To drop him
for desertion would be a rather arbitrary proceed
ing based on a technical interpretation of th«
phraseology of the statute. He might be, when his
case is finally settled, tried by court martial, but
those versed in military law say that he wouM
probably be acquitted by a military court, since
his offence was not committed on a military reser
vation and was in no sense connected with his
military service.
Ci],t,)n Hams may not be ordered before an
army rr-tirinu board until physical disability in his
oaso is shown. Tn that event he would have to be
retired, but jf he could not be retired for physical
disability and could not be examined for promotion,
tho chances are that unless some other means
were taken to remove him from the active Hat h«
would toloek promotion of officers In the coast
srtlllery corps until his liberation.
Thero is one small loophole by which Captain
Hams could be dropped from the army register. An
officer could ho nominated by the President and
confirmed by the Senate to the commission which
he holds. Tho advancement could be made "vie*
Captain P. c. Hfiins. jr." This Is a POKfS* which
would not bo taken Mteept as a last resort, but It
seems to be the on'y means of separating Captain
Hams from the military establishment.

(Fr<m The Tribune Bureau.)
Washington. Oct. 6.— Surgeon General Wyman. of

was justified in destroying a large amount of vac

This opinion was sought by Surgeon General
Wyman. following a demand made by the manu

Beginning yesterday the government's tax on the
tonnag*.' of vessels entering this port from certain
foreign points was 2 cents instead of 3 cents, which
It was under t lie old law. The aggregate of the
tax *k it now is Ik not to exceed I cents a ton In
any one year, whereas formerly It was not to ex
ceed 15 cents The new law places this reduced
tonnage tax on vessels entering from any foreign
port in North America, Central America, the West
Indies, the coa*t of South America bordering on
the Caribbean . <( a, and Newfoundland. The duty
on vessels from other foreign ports remains the

more than 30 Beats a year It was estimated yes
terday that the reduction In revenue under the new
tax would amount to |Mft,aM a year.
The tax receipts in the various boroughs y<'Ht»r

Unless Supreme Court Intervenes
Aged Banker Must Go to Jail.
Chicago, OjJ. B— John R. Walsh, convicted of
misapplication of the funds of the Chicago National
Bank, must serve the pent once of live years* im
prisonment imposed upon him by th" trial jury,
unless the Supreme Court upsets the affirmation
of the verdict of guilty hanil^<i tlown by the I'nlted
States Circuit Court of Appeals here to-fl;'.y. Walsh
is seventy-two yearn old.
Counsel for Mr. Walsh in their appeal laid the
greatest stress on what they alleged was a lack
of criminal intent on the patt of the defendant.
In the long Wi*f which they Tiled much law was
quoted to show that the convicted banker used
the funds of the bank in what lie considered a
legltimato manner.
The opinion of the Court of Appeals is brief and
confined wholly to the question of criminal intent.
The allegation that Juror Palmer was unduly in
fluenced is dismissed with a word, and little more
Is wasted in eliminating the allegation of Incon
sistency and repugnancy.
"So lonU nd there is no Inconsistency in the
verdict as to the substance of the matter charged
in the various counts," says the opinion, "the
verdict will not be disturbed. If the gravamen of
th* charge in each count, on which there has been
a verdict of guilty, is thft same, there is no incon
sistency In the verdict."
Counsel for Walsh have thirty days in which to
file application for a rehearing by the Court of Ap
peals. Meanwhile he will be at liberty under his
present bonds of $50,000.
Secretary to State Commission of Prisons Re
ports on Ludlow Street Jail.
Albany. Oct. s.— Oeorge Mclaughlin, secretary to
the State Commission of Prisons, la a report to the
commission to-day on a recent inspection of ths
New York County (I,udlow street) Jail, criticises
the commitment of prisoners as debtors on body
execution or orders of court to pay a definite sum
of* money. The report says:
The prisoners committed to pay a definite Dim,
are discharged after thr««e months' Imprisonment
where the amount is $.>jo or Ipps, and after six
months where the amount Is over $snO. The basis
for the imprisonment of those who are required
to pay a specific Hum of money is a Judgment in
tort or adjudication of like import. «*'»-"«■ in
Imprisonment on a wage earner's execution is nn
imprisonment for a debt of contract pur* and
simple, it Is Imprisonment of a man who is un
able to pay a debt which he owes to a servant Or
other employe, nlthough he is not charged with
any tort or misconduct. It is a relia <>! the old
barbarous practice of imprisoning people for debt.
It does not affect well-to-do persons, because, they
have property on which the execution can be col-\
lected. It falls frequently on tho man of small
Income, who Is compelled through sickness or un
avoidable cause to employ help in his family and
then, on account of either the loss of his own em
ployment or his own sickness or the extra or un
avoidable expenses of his own household Is unahle
promptly to pay th. wages of bis help, with the re
sult that he is promptly sued and put In jail.
Most of these waca earners ire single persons
with no families to maintain, many of them hav
ing savings bank deposits, or mlghi have There
does not seem to be any public policy why they
should bo a preferred class.
No person In these, days should he imprisoned for
the non-payment of a pimple debt of contract.
Smithsonian to Exchange Roosevelt Specimens
with Other Museums.
Washington. Oct. fi.— There, will be no exhibition
of the HooFcvcit African trophies of the hunt In
the new national museum building during th« com
ing winter because no decision has yet been reached
as to how thoy will be mount and grouped.
Taxidermists were to have been set to work
promptly to mount the specimen*. Discussion was
held as to whether there should be group* or single
mounts of the animals that had crossed the for
mer President's track and had fallen under Ills fire
Now it is apparent that the realization of this
programme will require more lime than was thought
The casks ami boxes in which, the trophies were
shipped to this country are still stored In the base
ment of the Smithsonian building. They were
taken out and examined, to see that they had not
been Injured during their lone Journey from Africa
photographed and then repacked exactly as they
had been received. They have not been taken out
Eventually some private firm will probably be
engaged to tan the skins carefully, and then they
will be placed In the hands of the taxidermists for
mounting. The collection Is po large that selec
tions of only the choicest of the specimens will bo
made for exhibition here. Duplicates will bo ex
changed for other specimens, as the great museums
of the world are nil desirous of having at least
one of the Roosevelt trophies.
Before any final decision Is reached tho oftVlals
of the national museum desire to know exactly
what they are to receive from the ex-President
Other consignments are to come In the near future
About September l the second lot of casks and
boxes was shipped, and their Arrival is expected
very soon. (

Exhibition de Luxe of Fashions Opens at Wanamaker's Today
Today Wanamaker's presents the Autumn Fashion Mes
sage of Paris to the Women of New York.
In this exhibition of Imported Costumes, Wraps, Millinery,
Furs and Girls' and Young Women's Attire — we present a dis
play that is larger in scope than any of the historic foreign ex
positions in recent years.
This display covers the entire Second floor of the Stewart Building.
And the setting is historically appropriate, for unless our information is at
fault, the first handful of Paris gowns ever brought to this country were im
ported by A. T. Stewart more than forty years ago.
Where Stewart brought a few, Wanamaker's is today presenting hun
dreds of Paris models.
We have never known such another exhibition. Among wraps
• alone there are probably as many splendid garments as one could find in
ten of the most luxurious collections in London.
There are so many imported gowns that we cannot show them all even
in the spacious Wanamaker Salons. So that day by day we shall have to
change the displays in the cases.
In a nutshell
Fashions of today embrace the best features in every style of every age.
The great artist dressmakers of today go everywhere for inspiration,
. but constantly maintain a note of difference and originality.
Today you will see the polonaise, the new full skirts, the use of beads,
and jet and mock jewels recalling memories of the days when the world
began, the chiffons and gauzes and marquisettes that always indicate the
height of refinement in luxury, the use of dull gold and silver and steeL

Here Are the New Furs
In the fur salon in a setting of animal heads and skins are shown the
new styles in fur coats, neck pieces and muffs. EVERY WANAMAKER

any but an expert to tell the quality of a fur — sometimes even to tell the
species of a fur. We guard our customers against any delusions by marking
plainly on each tag and telling plainly to each customer iust what the fur igt
