"In the face of positive denials,

Berlin, Nov. 24.The German press
is not joining in the general European
denunciation of the conviction of the

Berlin has failed to idolize the singer
in the past, and the papers say frankly
that he has long had the reputation in
continental circles for annoying women
with his attentions and surprise is ex
pressed that he should have escaped ex

American opera singers who have

One New York Banker Thinks Securi
ties Should Be Accepted in Spite of
Fact that They Have No Par.
Special to The Journal.
New York, Nov. 24.There was un
easiness in Wall street today as to
what is to be the status of the iron ore
certificates which are to be given to
the holders of stock of the Great
Northern Railroad company as the re
sult of the contract entered into by
the latter company and the United
States Steel corporation, It was al
leged that the, banks wouldr not accept
the Hill certificates in loan collaterals
of stock exchange houses and that if
they (the banks) -determine to accept
them it will be at heavy discount*
The president of one of the biggest
banks in the country when asked to
give his views on the subject, said.
"Speaking for myself personallv and
not for the bank, I think one of the
principal reasons for the street's un
favorable reception of the trustees'
certificates lies in the fact that thejy
have no par. This is a new feature so
far as Wall street is concerned, but"
I cannot see why the security, good in
itself, should be any less valuable be
cause it has no par. I do not believe
there will be any difficulty, among the
banks and their customers, as to using
the certificates in collateral loans. Of
course, just now the securities have
practically no market^ but I do not
think- that condition will continue very
long. As soon as the market is made
for the securities I feel safe in saying
that bank$ will accept them without
Elsewhere it was said that while the
securities to be issued by the Hill trus
tees have no par and are dependent
upon the output of ore for their value
from year to year, the real value of
the securities may be at least approxi
mated not only for any

Doubt remains,'' said Police Cap

dered her husband and killed herself,
or whether there was a third person in
the room. I am not prepared to say
there was not a third person there."

sister, arrived in Chicago today. She
is emphatic in the declaration that the
Delaneys were murdered, arid has en
