MUST REDUCE U) A WARNING TO BAXKS. ■ iControtter Calls for Strict Ob servance of. Xatc. Washington. Oct. 23.— Every national bank which is lending- money in excess of the amount permitted by law has been asked to reduce the loans to the required limit, and to abstain from any such excess in the future. This effort to have . all the national banks observe the legal limitation is being made in a conservative way, and It is believed by officials here that none of the banks will defy the official "re quest." The is made particularly in view of the fact that In nearly every bank which fails loans in excess of the ■ limit prescribed by law have been a con tributing caus«\ and the further fact that the concentration of the loans of the bank to a few interests . has always been regarded as an element of weak ness. The penalty for lending beyond tho prescribed limit is forfeiture of char ter, one of the most drastic provisions of the national hanking law. Up to a few years ago the amount which a national bank could lend, to any corporation, •person or firm was 10 per cent of the unimpaired capital, but this law was amended in 1900 so that a loan of 10 per cent of the unimpaired capital a.nd surplus might be made, but the loan must not in any case exceed 30 pel" cent of the capital of the bank. More than six thousand of the national banks are now and have been strictly complying with the law, but the re mainder have been chronic offenders, despite repeated' criticisms and warnings. To all these banks the Controller of the Currency hum sent a letter, in which he elates the law, and asks a promise by return mail to reduce loans to tlie legal limit and an agreement to observe the law strictly in future. He believes that every bank In the system will cheerfully comply with the request, and that every one of the seven thousand national banks will soon be strictly observing the law. , STORMS AND QUAKES.

I WIIIGUT JOY HIDING TRICKS WITH AIRSHIP Docs Many "Stunts" at High Speed. [From The Tribune bureau.] Washington. Oct —Wilbur Wright Kave an exhibition in his aeroplane to day at College Park of what is some times described in automobile parlance as "joy riding." There were a number of flight* rarly In the morning, for the weather was ex ceptionally good and the air still. Lieu tenant Lahra was taken up for a liisht of eighteen minutes; Lieutenant Hum phrey* for seven minutos and forty sec onds. Lieutenant PVnilois, who made the trip with nrville Wright from Fort Myer to Alexandria and return, took his first ride, which was of twelve minutes anil twenty second?, and Lieutenant Lahm was again taken up for eleven and a half minutes. Then Mr. "Wright mounted the machine alone and etarted off. He made no prom ises as to what he would do, but before he had been in the air a minute he was giving such ;m exhibition of fancy flying as has not been peen before in this coun try. He ppreded the machine up to its utmoPt limit and dashed up and down the field, cutting figures of eight nnd de rarting from his usual method of slowly circling the field from east to west. Then he paused for a while at the Tipper end of the field and did 'Vtunts" in the way of short turning. Possibly he did not make the aeroplane turn in Its own length, but it looked like it. He dashed back and forth across the nar row end of tho field, circled and turnfd and swooped up and down like a trick rider on a bicycl<\ He went over the course h« had circled some days before in making his record of nearly forty-six miles an hour for the closed kilometre He did not quite equal this record, but this was due apparently to the drag of the rear plane, which has been set to steady th* aeroplano in the air. He f-aid afterward that he was merely trying out the speed of tho machine. When asked if he intended to leave the supplementary plane in place at the bark of the machine, he replied that probably he would make some perma nent changi: in the way of a following piano, but was not ready to say exactly what it would be. Mr. Wright waß a luncheon guest this afternoon at the Maryland Agricultural College. Thomas F. Walsh, president of the Washington Aero Club; W. F. Gude, president of the Washington Chamber of Commerce, and all the members of the faculty of the college were present When the published Btatemen*credit ing Cortland Field Bishop, the president of the Aero Club of America, with say ing that the Wrights intended to monop olize the flying business of the world, as was shown by their suits against Curtiss and Souliere and a number of the French aviators, was shown to him Mr. Wright explained that the French suits were not brought by the Wrights especially, but by the syndicate to which they had sold their foreign patents. He said: "My brother and I perfected the idea of flexible wings and made a practical man-carrying machine. We thought cer tainly we had covered our Invention rtiiroughly by patents. Now, when an other fellow comes along and uses yovir ideas, it is certainly no tun." HIGH FLKiHTH SAFE. AH tatf army offle<— s who are being trained at College Park are. mu«h inter est, d in reports of the high flights made by Orville Wright, in Berlin, and Count de Lambert, who passed three hundred feet over the top O f the Eiffel Tower. One of these officers, when watching the flight of the aeroplane to-day, said: "If you put that machine fifteen hun dred feet in the air, going at the rate she js now making, she would be abso lutely safe, if you hit her even with shrapnel it would be a chance shot " They believe that th« high flights al ready made by the Wright machine do more than anything else to aasure its utility in army scouting, one of the arguments advanced against the use of a living machine for rceonnoissance work is that it would be at the nieroj of hostile gunners. Jf the machine can be flown in safety beyond the range of accurate gunfire it will thoroughly de monstrate its utility for scouting. U>.-ntenant Foulois, in speaking of the high flights, said that personally he .should feel much safer at a consider ftbte distance from the ground than when Hying low. This was due to the fact that when the aeroplane is gliding down from a height when the engine stops it travels six feet horizontally to every foot it fallp, and this at a height of live hundred feet would give a choice of a circle of almost a mile radius in selecting a landing spa.-c. The whole question of flying over cities has been discussed by Mr. Wright and the army ofli.ers at College Park, and it has been agreed that the Knglish com mon law which now applies in cases of aerial trespass will have to be modified in order to fit the altered conditions brought about through the use of flying machines. Wiluur Wright says there is more danger io the spectators in flying over tin- ln-adu of a crowd or pa-wing over a city than to the operator of tlie machine, and be thinks that, ultimately there will he laws governing the us.- of I In the air, as th.-re now are of roads on the earth.

OCTOBER 24, 19091 FIND MANY JEWELS POLICE SEEK OWNERS Trunk of Laundress Reveals Variety of Valuable Articles. ! By Telegraph to The Tribune.] Greenwich, Conn.. Oct 23.— Sergeant Andrew Talbot. of the Greenwich police force, lias made a discovery which the police here think may result in restoring to their owners jewelry and articles of apparel valued at many thousands of dollars. The articles In question, the police say, were found in the trunk of Bessie Lee, a former laundress. in Stam ford, during a search instituted by Charles A. Moore, of the New York firm of Manning, Maxwell & Moore, for a shirtwaist valued at $60 belonging to his daughter, the Duchess Torlonia. This search was made two weeks ago, but It was not until to-day that the po lice made the facts public. They believe that the goods were stolen, but all ef forts' to find the owners have proved fruitless. Among tha articles found were two diamond sunbursts which Mr. Moore said were worth no less than $500 each; sev eral valuable diamond rings, a. pearl necklace, which could have been worth no less than $1,500; a large jewelled brooch, some thirty or forty shirtwaists, of a probable value ranging from $20 to $100 each, and other articles of clothing 1 . The missing shirtwaist, however, was not found. Miss Lee had been a laundress In the Belle Haven homo of Mr. Moore, where the Duke and Duchess Torlonla, who have Just sailed for Italy, had been spending the summer and autumn. About three weeks ago the girl left tho employ of tho Moores, and as i^ie was about to leave, Mr. Moore says, a mem ber of the family discovered in the girl's suitcase several valuable articles be longing to the family. Later tlie los.« of the ehirtwaist was discovered, and Mr. Moore obtained the assistance of Ser geant Talbot and went to the house In Stamford where the girl was rooming. When the Greenwich policeman inter rogated the girl as to where she got so many costly articles she said that a wealthy uncle in England who had died several years ago had left them to her. He called attention to the fact that some of the pieces were in new looking boxes, bearing the labels of American firms. Her reply was that she had merely put the things In those boxes because they were handy. Sergeant Talbot ascertained that she had been employed in the families of William K. Vanderbilt, of New York; of Edmund C. Converse, in Greenwich, and with the Sloanes, In Lowell, Mass. Later, lie says, he discovered Miss Lee had sold to a Stamford man a diamond sunburst, estimated to be worth from .<r>oo to |OQO, for $75. The sunburst wag similar to one which had been taken from the home of Mrs. Howard Morton, of this town, several months ago. but Mr. and Mrs. Morton upon Inspection tills afternoon, failed to Identify It.

Tex., Oct. ».— President Taft ar rived here nt 5:30 o'clock this afternoon, af ter a fast run by special train front Hous ton, whore he spent three hours tb'a m«.rn lag. Ho was taken immediately to ti.e state Kalr Grounds, where ho made an "p< n air sneech to a throng which filled the big racetrack stand and spread far out in every direction. Mr. Taft was so hoarse that he could be heard only a short distance, despite heroic efforts on his part. He spoke again briefly to-night at a dinner tendered to him at the Oriental Hotel and returned to his train preparatory to leaving early to-morrow morning for St. l/ouls. From St. I.ouls on Monday afternoon the President will begin a pilgrimage of four days and five nights down the Mississippi River to New Orleans. The President's voice began to grow husky after his (speech at Corpus Christ! yesterday and broke down almost complete ly during his address at Houston this morn ing, when he tried to make himself heard to a crowd which filled four Intersecting streets for two blocks in either direction. According to Dr. Richardson, the Presi dent's physician, the hoarseness Is due. In large part, to the let-up In speechmaking which came during the President's visit to his brother's ranch, and he predicted that the vocal cords will round to In a day or so. Vp to this time the President's voice has kept «n splendid condition. On account of hoarseness, the President did not attemot to make a long speech, either at the Fair Grounds or the dinner, and confined himself In aach Instance to an expression of Jila appreciation of the warmth of his reception in Texas. He completed, on arriving here, his eighth day in the state. "I was asked to day." said the President at the ralr Grounds, "if T had any doubt by this time about Texas being a part of the I'nlon. replied that the only doubt I had was whether the Union was not a part of Texas." On his way from Houston to-dsy the President travelled in the most populous section of the state, and the succession of prosperous looking towns and cities was In striking contrast to the long stretches of barren cactus and meequite brush plains in the West. At each station through which the train passed there was a large crowd to beer tho President. He made several little oar-end talks, and at those places where no stop was scheduled he appeared on the platform to wave a response to the cheers sent up in his honor. At Hempstead the President spoke to sev eral hundred pupils of the Prairie View rolored State Normal School, and at Col lege Station addressed the students of the Agricultural and Mechanical College, who were drawn up In uniform. An unfortunate incident of the Presi dent's trip to Dallas was the bayonetting of Deputy Clerk Louis Reichtensteln by one of the militiamen on guard at the Fair Grounds. Relchtensteln was operated on night at St. Paul's Sanatorium, and it was said he could not live. The stabbing occurred Just before the President's train arrived»»t the fair grounds, and it Is pre sumed^that Relchtenstein was trying to force a way through the crowd, although' it was said he was behind the wire cable holding the crowd back when the soldier used his bayonet. The knlfellke weapon went entirely through Retchtenstein's body m the vicinity of the abdomen. The authori ties' are Investigating.--.-. ..■: . ■» •:• .-. i >! -' r ' President Taft during his stay. -Texas. ha« learned much of the rivalry a^hong thY eitiw'pf Dallas/ Baa Antonio *na. Housio*. as to which is really the largest and fore*. most city In the state, and he has had quite a little fun In discussing the question in the three cities mentioned. At tho fair grounds this afternoon the President spoke about this rivalry, and bhM such a spirit of determination was sure to in making one or the other city the biggest, and In making all of them Impor tant In the development of the state. The throng In the grandstand was restless and noisy. Those in the more remote sec tions of the cavernous structure were en deavoring constantly to get a belter view of the President, and this resulted in con tinuous confusion, noise and shouts from those whose view had been obstructed. "I ought to have a voice like a steam whistle," said the President, "to make my self heard. I have a very bad voice, but in order to express my appreciation of the oxpanslveness of Texas, of the welcome 1 have had wherever I have gone, and the cordiality of your reception, I should strain every nerve and muscle or my body. "The progress of a Btatoand of a nation i« marked by the progress of scientific agri culture. State fairs serve to stimulate sci entific work of that character, and you can measure the importance and progresslveness .if a state by the size and interest the people take in their !«tate fair." The President has discussed postal sav ings banks again in several recent Fpeeche?, and lias again expressed the hope that the banking interests will withdraw their ob jections to the passage of such a bill. He declares that government institutions pay ing 2 per cent would interfere in no way with the great (savings banks paying 3 and 4 per cent. At Heevill<\ Tex., while the President was discussing postal savings banks, there came a voice from the crowd: "Where do you put your money 'Bill'?" "Well," laughed the President In response, "I haven't much to put anywhere. "vVhen^ you have been in politics and public office a* long as I have you won't have much either." T<> the students of the Agricultural and Mechanical College to-day the President said: After looking on you. the thought that first comes to my mind is that they raise good men in Texas, as well as a good many other things. I am very glad to have this opportunity of seeing you. I am glad to be able to look into your faces and to congratulate you on having an opportunity, under the auspices of the state, to learn or to Ret what Is now called a vocational education. We have pone long steps ahead in the matter of education, and especially under state auspices, in teaching the young men something that Is useful for them in after life, so that they can begin right away. To those who have time to indulge in a classical education it Is all right, but there are many of OS not so situated, and many of us - may well learn to accept the op portunity to go into engineering, into farming, into those things that we are going to do all the time. Now, that is what you are doing, and I am sure you are improving every mlntit.-. If you are engaged in farming you don't have to go far to try it. I have been through your state during th« last week, and if you will put the new processes with rrsji. ot to irrigation and reclamation Into force, you will make a state that will be so big ysu won't know what to do with it. To the negro students of the Prairie View School the President said: I I congratulate you on the opportunities for useful education which you are. re ceiving under the auspices of the State of Texas, and I . congratulate th* state t,hat It makes no distinction In furnishing tHose educational faculties to all Its citizens.

Secretary Dickinson Not Res cuer, Detroit Thinks. fßy Telegr.iph to The Tribune. 1 Detroit, Oct. 23.— 1t is asserted here that Secretary Dickinson, who recently received a medal for rescuing James F. Joy, who fell into the Detroit River from the gangplank <>f ex-Secretary Kew borry's yacht, tho Truant, in 1895, did not rescue Mr. Joy at all. Captain Mosa Redmond, who has been in command of various yachts owned by the Newberry family for thirty years, it is said, performed that feat himself. Captain Redmond told the story of the roscup to-day, and backed it up with a letter from Mr. Joy, thanking- him for 1113 service. Cfptain Redmond said he had one medal for lifesavlnft already, and what was more, the letter written by Mr. Joy shortly after his ducking. This letter he had treasured, and when the original copy was accidentally destroyed he went to Mr. Joy's office and a copy from the letter file was given to him After much delving among papers in a chest in his winter quarters, at Xo. 672 At water street. East. Captain Redmond brought this to view: Dear Sir: Will you allow me to make you a present of the inclosed $25? Of course, ft is no compensation, nor is it In tended as such, for tha very efficient and prompt aid you ami the men on the Tru ant gave me the evening I took a bath by stepping from the gangplank. Nothing I could do would be compensation to you lor such aid. nnd you would not take compensation for an act of humanity on your part. I make this little present and write you this letter and give you my cor dial thanks, all to show you that I appre iate fully the prompt and careful means adopted by you in rescuing myself and my friend Dickinson, who. not knowing hat I was an expert swimmer, had im nediately followed me into the water to hold me up. if necessary, until both could be rescued from it. When next I take a bath of this kind, if I ever do, I hope it may be from tha Truant, with yourslf and the men with you in management. J. F. JOT. PLANTERS DEPORTED. Arbitrary Action in German Samoa.
