Secretary A damson stated positively, •however, that no significance attached to Dr. Brewer's presence to-day.

Mr. Adamson - would not B<3ir_it. however, that there was any thing !n the story of a conspiracy. Fifteen or twenty letters found in Gal- Lagher's room in his Third avenue home "* ere examined at the conference, as well es two blackjacks and a box of cart ridg-es. Following Mr. Adamson's call at Police l-j'.ccquarters, William B. Meioney, the Mayor's executive secretary, was a visi tor there. He said his object was to make cer tain researches in the Rogues' Gallery ill connectio j with a number of letters which had been aat to the Mayor's office. The impression was pained that the letters were connected with the shooting Of the Mayor.

Dr. William J. Arlitz, the visiting cur- E?on of St. Mary's Hospital, who has charge of the case, denied yesterday that the cough was a serious matter. "But does not a cough offer some dan **' at this time?" he was asked. "I can't see that it does, and anyhow there is not much coughing." was the reply. Secretary Adanison said that while the rough had been bad for ■ time during the day, there was a manifest improve ment toward evening.

Em erson, received an absolute divorce from her husband at Reno, New, this after noon, according to advices from that city. Mrs. Emerson, the mother of Mrs. Me- | Kirn, emphatically denies this evening j that her daughter is to marry Alfred ' Gwynne Vanderbilt. as has been per sistently rumored since she entered the ; Reno proceedings. "My daughter is not engaged to marry t Mr. Vanderbilt nor any other man," was j her answer to inquiries as to the truth i of the rumor. Margaret Emerson (Mrs. McKim) was a reigning belle in this city. Dr. Mc- Kirn, who is the son of Hollins McKim. a well known Baltimore banker, pro ' po^ed marriage to her on board her ; father's yacht in the Bay of Naples. They were married In Christ Church, . Baltimore, on December 20, 1902. It I was not until several years later that '■ there came stories of trouble in the Mc | Kirn family, but both Dr. and Mrs. |fc j Kirn denied the reports until the day tiie j action for divorce was filed. In her bill of complaint Mrs. McKim charged her 1 husband with drunkenness and cruelty. i He will fight the decree, it is said, on the i ground that she did nut establish a leg~al I residence in Nevada. Dr. McKim was not represented in court, and made no answer to his wife's complaint. Mrs. McKim was the only witness. She testified that shortly after their marriage at Baltimore on Decem ber iX>. 1902, her husband had become addicted to drink, and this habit so grew on him that he became incompetent to attend to his practice anrl unable to earn a living for himself and wife. Finally, she testified, she was com pelled to obtain money from her father with which to provide for herself and husband. J?he told of numerous alleged occasions when her husband caused her great humiliation In public. She charged that on one occasion he knocked hor down.

G. A. R. VETERANS INDIGNANT Movement to Remain Away from At lantic City Encampment Spreads. [B TeleKrapb to Th* Tribal* 1 Pittsburgh, Aug. 13.— Seven local Grand Army posts ha\e thus far decided not to attend the annual G. A. R. encampment at Atlantic City in September in a body, but to send delegates only, owing to the refusal of the railroads to make low rates for the gathering. To a.ll previous encampments the railroad traffic associations granted excursion rates, often half fare. The be rat© offered by the railroads this year is eaid to be 60 per cent higher than excur sion rates. County Commissioner I. K.

SUNi>AY,- AUGUST 14, 1910.-1 [YE PARTS- FIFTY-EIUHT PACKS. MILLIONS SUNK IN FRAUDS Head of Postoffice Inspectors Places It at $50,000,000. THAT SUM IN TEN YEARS Says 20 -Cent Shares Spell "Fake" — Investors Lose $5,000,000 a Year. "In the last ten years the American people have invested $50,000,000 in fake mining schemes." Warren Dickson, th. new head of the postofflcc inspectors in this city, said yesterday. He was talk ing about the investigation bein? made of the affairs of "William T. Wtotemute, who Is in the Tombs awaiting to-morrow, when his counsel will endeavor to have the bail, fixed at $3,000 by United States Commissioner Shields, reduced to some where within reach of Mr. Wintemutt's pocket. Wintemute, through his counsel and otherwise, denies hia culpability. The postoffice authorities declare that the. circulars and other documents used by him and his agents to induce, persons to invest in th- stock of the Gold Run Mining and Milling Company were ex aggerations, coming within the mean ing; of the Revised Statutes of the Vnited States against a misuse of the mails; and the postoffice inspectors say that $1,800,000 was taken in from the sal. of Gold Run stuck. It was the result of investigations of f-o-'-alled fake mining enterprises that showed £r>o.ooo,<X>o had been lost by investors in the last ten years. Mr. Dickson believed that that sum was a very conservative estimate. The gov ernment has gone after persons who have used the mails for mining and other business promotion before this, but never so determinedly as at present, for it is bound tc wipe out all manner of misuse of the mails, no matter what the articles the dealers in inflated or falst ventures may seek to sell. Wintemute' s history has been tabu lated and checked up. And his is not the only record that will be used in the present crusade. Th<-> action against the "United Wireless Telegraph Company was really only a part of the govern ment's plan to proted the people as far as possible against misrepresentation in commercial enterprise:-, said Mr. Dick son, though he stated thut he did m>t in clude the I'nlteti Wireless In his sti mate of loss's suffered by the people in th<- last ten years. "No person who has a real gold mine, or mine of any kind with actual produc tivity In siijht, need peddle stock ai 2U cents a share, or less, or mure." Mr. Dickson said. "Whenever that is being 1 done it is time to ask for an accounting and an authenticated report fn.m :m un doubtedly efficient and honest mining engineer. There is plenty of capital ready for the development Of any pro ductive mine." There win be renewed activitj in the Federal Building to-morrow, whether Mr. Wintemute has his baj! reduced and gets :i bond or not. There may be other arrests !■• fore th<- week has passed, the liostoffice Inspectors are receiving nu merous complaints, now that ih< action In the Wintemute case has rec« lv< d pub licity.

Judge Lacombe. in an opinion filed yes terday in the Unit.-d States Circuit Court, refused to grant the petition of the Broadway & Seventh " Avenue, the Forty-second Street & Grand Street Ferry and the Thirty-fourth Street & Crosstown Railroad companies • asking that the receivers of the Metropolitan Street Railway Company, leasing the foregoing lines, pay the legal expenses in connection with the franchise '-tax litigation incurred by the lei.*ed .lines and the Metropolitan."

Judge L,ucombe closed as fol lows: "I "mi! that question is decided such an application as the present one is pre mature. If it be finally held that the lessee r-iiould pay th<- tax. it will be quite in order to determine whether the re ceivers should pay these bills for legal services, although they did not theni .st-lv^s retain the counsel. But If it be finally held that the leases impose no Buch obligation on the lessee in i.ht mat ter of special franchise taxes, it would he manifestly improper to direct the re ceivers to pay indebtedness incurred by the lessor for services of the counsel whom it retained to protect its own in terests."
