Before you spend your money, shall It go to a fund to protect mur derers, to buy Governors? Stop and think. Now Is the time to show your colors, to show your true, American blood. "Is It streaked? Can't you buy cloth lar from an American? Can't you buy ihoes from an American? Can't you bur the necessities of life from an American? American Gentiles, It Is up to you.

It Is said three girts got pistols from their fathers and fired Into the Governor's efflux. Atlanta was normal on the surface to-lay. Most of the 'troops were re moved from Gov.

Tho Governpr did not per tor.ally read his annual message, but transmitted It to the officers of the Housa ird the Senate by his secretary. The Prank case Is not mentioned In the raeesage. The members of the Legisla ture gave no outward sign of their feet rat about the Governor. Privately the peat majority of them strongly disap prove of his action. No trouble Is reported at tha State prison farm near Mllledgevllle, where Frank Is confined, though double guards are still on duty. Frank has made a rood impression on the other prisoner anl Is regaining his nerve. lie was put to making beds this morning and looked like a clown In a suit several sites too large for him. Frank used to visit Mllledgevllle on business. He said rather sadly to-day: "I thought I would never come to Mllledgevllle as a convict." A. H. Henalee, who waa a member of the jury that convicted Frank, has Is sued an address to Georgia In which he says: "As a Juror and a citizen I wish these few words could go to tho very depth of every true Georgian's aoul: Our Chief Executive has defied, debased and conquered our courts. 'Had I power I would exile Slaton nlhis law partner, Luther Hosser, from Georgia. "Fellow citizens, what promise have e left for the protection of our daugh ters, wives, sisters and mothers? "Is It time for us to destroy our court records, tear up our code and abandon tV court houses? "Is It time to request our Supreme Court Justices to quit the bench nnd go to the plough nnd In their places ha'e such men as Slaton and Itosser?" Hensleo says tha Jury on the second ballot stood ten for first degree murder, one doubtful nnd ono blank. Jlenslee marked his ballot doubtful. After dis cussion a viva voce vote was taken, re Jltlnc unanimously for first degree mur 4r, Tho Jury then voted not to recom mend to mercy. Henslee siys the Jury paid little at tention to Conley evidence, but were convinced by other testimony. MUST GIVE TICKER SERVICE. BnfTlo llroUers Get Injunction Asnlnst Catting Them Off.

Nw Haven, Conn.. June 23. Speak ing to the nlumnl of Talo nt their an nual luncheon to-day ejt-l'rcsldent Taft made a strong declaration against ths existing conditions In colleso athletics, especially on the baeeball field. "There la a difference between college and professional baseball," said Mr. Taft, "and when tho college man with his talk, his Jibes, his muckerlsm, goes even lower than the professional, It la high time, for reform. I am a strong believer In sport. But such expressions as 'put his eye out' when dlrcted at an opponent fall far below all college stand ards. "Wc know that the college ball player Is a gentleman off tho field. Then It la our ditty to make rules and laws that will keep him n Gentleman on the Hold, ltullngs should be nude barring the In sistent chatter. "However, theic have been great re forms. I can remember when a man wjs perfected In athletics In the first four years of college. Then he became a pluperfect athlete nnd spent thitv years In the law school, another three years In the medical school and still another three years In tho school of religion. Happily, that period Is past and now college athletics nre under graduate athletics and that Is as It should be. "Still there Is rm for a greater reform. This was brought to my atten tion to-day when I was shown a letter received by a member of the freshman class. Tho letter offered to tho man In particular all his expenses at another college and a guarantee of a position paying JI.OOO a ar after he graduated If ho would attend that collego and give It his services. This Is no new con dition, but It Is one that should bo put out of existence. There la too much scouting for ma terial being done by fond nlumnl socle ties. It savors much of the professional scout of baseball. It can be wiped out easily, for the men who are nt the pres ent time making these ofTers, which they think are for the benefit of their alma mater, aro men of calibre, and If they nre shown that It Is wrong, If rule are drawn up prohibiting such practices, the men who are now engagea in tnem win stop of their own accord," T.T8,000 Id Olfta. . , V, fining nf IhA Hlfflmenre. mcnt exercises this nfternoon the alumni n.a a hM President Ifadlev announced that gifts received during tho year ana previously announce i" .fr.e nnn Tta Innlm!,! f 3Knnno of the Lauder Foundation In the medical school and a Bequest or nw.wu irum the Maria Do Witt Jesup estate. t.. - i ,, - c ! v o 1 1 nr nrnmlsed amount to about $80,000.

Dr. Henry Coffin of New York, who received on honorary degree, was one of the speakers at the nlumnl dinner. Ho referred to the part he played with other Ynle men some years ngo In causing W. J. Hryan to abandon In disgust an attempt to address a body of Yalo undergraduates. "At the time," Dr. Coffin continued, "an aspirant to tho Presidency, who has been a rerennl'il candidate ever since, came to New Haven and some of us undergraduates took It upon ourselves to Interposo what seemed to him to bo ample cause for postponing Tils remarks for a year. He lost his tempor, you nil recall, nnd with some others I wns sent to tho dean about It ns being one of the responslbles. The recent acts of that somewhat tarnished patriot have doubtless caused my alma mater to deem me worth of a third or honorary degree." Dr. Coffin had received two decrees from Yale before the honorary degree to-day. In reply to the drive nt Mr. rtrynn, Prof. Taft, who followed Dr. Coffin, said: "I feel that I must answer ths rather light reference to the gentleman with whom I have the profoundest sympathy through common personal experience. That gentleman said that I was elected four years previous to the last election by the largest plurality ever given n candidate, but would be retired with similar general approval. I stand hero to defend him and to say that wo who are trying to Inform tho world with our lungs and throats must stand together." WILLIAMS DIPLOMAS TO 97.

DOCTORS TOLD OF NEW CANCER DRUG1 Derived From Plnnt Life nnil Discovered by Prof. Hor wllz of Cornell. TESTS RETNO MADE HE HE RpRtxci Lake, N. J June 23. Dr. W. Homer Axford. of the Polyclinic Hos pital, New York, aroused great Interest before the Medical Society of New Jer sey to-dnj when ho said that In a drug derived from plant life, discovered tw years ago by Prof, Alexander Horwltz of Cornell University, there had been found what experiments Indlcnto will provo a cnrntlvo agent for cancerous growths nnd nil abnormal cell develop ments. The new agent, which Dr. Axford said was simple In form. Is applied hypo dermlcally, being ns effective If placed In n healthy part of the body ns In the tumor mass Itself. Its use must bo guarded, however, ns the element of re nctlon Is dangerous, experiments have shown. The drug has been npplled only In enses called Incurable by physicians, who havo sent patients to tho Poly clinic for X-ray treatment ns a last ro sort. Dr. Axford and Dr. J. Wallace Dover Idge are In chsrgo of the work at the Polyclinic. More than 200 patients have been treated and only one has died. The experimental work has not permitted a thorough test of Its effectiveness In ab dominal cancer cases. Dr. Axford said, this branch having been taken up only a few weeks ago. The first work of those In charge of the development of the drug was with chest affections, and only three weeks ngo the first treatments for nlidomlnnl cancer were started. These apparently have been as successful as the first kind, according to Dr. Axford. That the drug will be given to tho medical profession of the world ns soon ns Its curative properties have been proved without question was tho promise of Dr. Axford, who said It would still be months and peihnps years beforo the re search work could bo completed. The quick effects of tho drug make It advantageous In the treatment, Dr. Ax ford said. Within a few days after the Infection the skin of the patient tnvari ably clears up and loses Its sallowncss j there Is soon manifest a lessening of tho pain and the tumor growth shortly be gins to fall away In size and weight. Dr. Axford said that both ho and Dr. Heverldge would still urge tho use of sur gery In the llrst treatment of cancer, ns they had not been able to tako up the dlseaso In Its primary stages as yet. He made this statement, ho said, because he could not say what the positive curative valuo of the now drug would be. Dr. Horwltz Immediately after his discover)- of the drug consulted with Dr. Silas Ileebe, also of tho faculty of Cor nell University. Their Joint discoveries led them to seek n field for experiment nnd this was readily granted at the Polyclinic Hospital, tho experimental work having been turned over to Dr. Ueverldge. The first experiments with the drug were In poultices, which were found to greatly relieve the pain, but did not show Indications of curative vnlue to any great extent. It was not until a few months ngo that It was prepared In extract form suitable for hypodermic ad ministration. BLIND, WINS $20,000 CASE. Slifhtlrsi Lawyer Obtains Verdict for Man Who Lost I.ror. A blind lawyer obtained a verdict for 120,000 yesterday In a damage suit started by James Itooney, a mason, to recover for "the loss of his right leg. Tho case was tried before Supreme Court Justice Garretson nnd a Jury In llrooklyn.

A scaffold fell, carrying Rooney with It. His leg was amputated later as n result of the fnll. As Carrier was not Insured under th-; workmen's liability law Itooney started suit.

BEECHER'S SONS ALL OPPOSE CRYPT PLAN Noted Trencher Himself Ex pressed Disnpprovnl in Such Cnscs, Asserts Ono. OEX. KfNG TS SUHPHTSED The tlnee nuns of Henry Ward Hcecher expressed yesterday emphatic disapproval of the plan to remove their father's body from Green-Wood Ceme tery to n new resting place tinder the crypt of Plymouth Church, llrooklyn. "It looks to me ns If the Hev. Dr. Newell Dwight Hlllls, my father's suc cessor. Is trying to mnko an American Westminster Abbey out of Plymouth Church," satd Capt. H. P. Ileecher ot Port Townscnd, Wash., who nlso spoko for his brother, dl. II. Ileecher. From ..Is summer home at Huck Hill Falls, P.i., Col. William C. Ileecher. executor of his father's will, sent a telegram ex pressing his doubts of the propriety of the pl.m. Col. Ileecher said : "I do not know there Is any plan to change Mr. Hcecher'a irrave and doubt If It will be done. It can only be done on consent of all the heirs, and I do not know my brothers" feel ings en the subject. I am doubtful s to tho propriety of such change." Gen. Horatio C. King, clerk of Ply mouth Church nnd secretary of the Hcecher Memorial Association, who has said that only "come garrulous wom'n" were objecting to the removal plan, admitted yesterday thst the mes sage from Col. Ileecher came as a sur. prise to him. "I cannot understand It," he said, I had always thought that Will Ileoche was henrtlly In favor of this plan to honor his father's memory. He had never spoken to mo nbout It, but Dr. Hlllls told me thnt Will wanted the body brought here to the ctfurch. as we had planned. In fact I know It has always been my belief that Will Ileecher was ns nnxtous ns we were that Ileecher's body should rest In the church that he made famous. "I am amazed nnd confused at this development. Hut. of course. If ho doesn't want his father's body moved that settle It. He Is the executor and he has everything to say. We were pre pared to spend nt least J2.000 to build a handsome memorial. We havs the plan of the architect tn hand now It Is a very beautiful design." Sbatti.k. Wash., June 23. Capt. H. P. Ileecher of Port Towr.send. son of Henry Ward Hcecher, eays thnt the contem plated removal of the body of the noted preacher from Its resting place In Green-Wood Cemetery Is directly against the wishes nnd beliefs ot Henry Waisl Ileecher as expressed when he was alive. "If h could be consulted In this mat ter I know absolutely that ho would emphatically say no." said Capt. Ileecher. "He did not believe In re moving bodies once they were burled, and In one case which concerned him he took a positive stand on this question. I refer to his two children who died nnd were burled nt Indianapolis. He would not have the bodies moved to the family plot In Green-Wood. "As far as I nm concerned I have ex postulated against the removal nf my father's hody, but I do not suppose that my voice will havs much weight from mich a distance. My brother II. II Ileecher hos objected also. There Is nothing we can do except to say that In our opinion the step Is Improper. "There Is this much, however, that I should like to see done If ths removal must go forward, and that Is the re moval nlso of the coffins of my mother nnd the other children, who are burlod together. I do not think It right to take one and leave the rest. "It looks to me as If the Hev. Newell Dwight Hlllls. my father's successor. Is trying to make an American Weatmln Ister Abbey out of Plymouth Church." BLUMLEIN TRACED IN 'RIPPER' MYSTERY Inspector Fnurot Looks Into Hecord of Mnn Held in Philadelphia.

"The lookers" ever consider their purchasing power? Did you ever stop to consider the tremendous purchasing power represented by that familiar class who come to look and remain to buy? The man who says he is merely looking hopes thereby to make his exit more graceful, in the event that the proposition fails to appeal to him. And the Equitable Building Corporation invites particularly "the man who is merely looking," for if it be humanly possible for that man to be persuaded into leasing new quarters, the Equitable Building will do it Building note open for tenants Equitable Building Corporation 120 Broadway GROUT BANK VALUES TOO HIGH IS CHARGE lYstimony In Trlnl Shows $55,000 Discrepancy on IJrnnch Property. Even the properties occupied by the defunct Union Hank of Brooklyn wers grossly overvalued In the bank report of March 26, 1910, according to District Attorney James C. Cropsey, who sub mitted evidence to this effect yesterday at tho trlnl of ex-City Comptroller Orout for perjury. William F. Corwltb. formerly a di rector In the bank, testified as nn ex pert on Oreenpolnt real estato that the land and building occupied by the Oreenpolnt, or Seventeenth wnrd, brnn' b fn 1910 wns worth not morn than J95,. 000 at thnt tlmo. In tho falso bank re port, 'however, this property was carried at Its full "book" valuo. $150,000. Fur thermore, Mr. Corwlth testified that he had called XIr. Grout's attention to tho overvaluation. According to his tes timony Orout agreed with him nnd added : "Ah soon as the condition ot the bank warrants It wo will mark It down." Stephen C Haldwln, counsel for Orcnit, sought to show on cross-examination that Corwith himself as member of an examining committee of directors had Indorsed tho maximum valuation In a formal report mnde to the bank. This report, llko tho report which forms the basis of the Indlstment against Orout, Indicated on Its face that It wan sworn to, but the witness could not recollect having done so. Corwlth pointed out. howevor, that the question whether ho swore to the report or not was really trivial, Inasmuch as the report merely purported to show the book value, lino.000, the space for market vnluo hnvlng been left blank. He was positive that J9T,O0u was a generous valuation and that JJO.000 wo'ild probably come closer to tho mark. Two other witnesses whom Mr. Crop ey called had difficulty In qualifying as experts. Oeorge J. Jardln, n coal dealer, who snld thnt he had been specu lating In Fast New York renl estato for twenty.three years, was n.sked nbout tho value of tho Atlantic branch. This property wns valued nt $.10,000 iln the bank report, It was assessed nt $16,000. Jardln wns permitted to say that he had held nn option on It for $28,000 when It was tho Atlantic Hank, an Independent Institution. Dnvld A. Sullivan later merged tho bank with tho Union, nnd tho option having run out purchased tho bank property for $50,000. As the result of an examina tion by Mr. Hnrdwln Jardtn wns not permitted to say what In his opinion the property was worth when tho fnlse bank report was Issued. A recess wns taken when Mr. Cropsey endenvored to put n deputy tnx com missioner on tho stand. Mr. Haldwln objected thnt such testimony would not be permitted even In condemnation pro ceedings, nnd that It ought certainly to be excluded In n erlmlnnl ense. Mr. Cropsey nsked permission to submit a brief on tho question. The trial will go on to-day. NEW HAVEN STRIKE DOUBTFUL. ClerU Hi licet Arbitration Will Prove tn Hi- Acceptable.
