Thc plan of operation, it is charged
in the indictments, was for members
of the concern to advertise their ability
to sell stocks for promoters and in

vertisement's "were told that the slock
should not be sold at its true value un
less gitarautecd hy a reliable guaranty

recommended to George IL llannaford,
who conducted thc Chicago Debcnturo
company, llannaford, tho indictment
states, would guarantee tbc slock,
charging 1 per cent of its par value.
No Effort to Sell Stock.
The promoter then would be in
formed that a purchaaor for thc entire
issue had been found providing the
proposition was found worthy. A. charge
rating as high as ono-third, or some
times 'Jo per cent of thc par value of
tho stock, would be made for this in
vestigation. Afterward tho promoter
was informod that his proposition had
proved to bo no good and was dropped.

was made to sell any stock, it is de

Yale Professor Declares - It Is
Due Primarily lo Gold and
Credit Inflation.
XEW YO.R.K. Xov. JS. Professor
Trvutg' Fisher of Vale university told
the members of thc Xcw York Manu
facturers' association in Brooklj-ji to
night that the high cost of living was
due primarily to what he tcrmod gold
inflation and credit inflation.
"As those two influences, gold and
credit, arc closely related," said thc
political economist, "wo may unite
thom in thc word inflation.
"History is full of illustrations. o.t"
paper money inllation and tho terrible
conscquonce in disturbing contracts and
business stability as well as the injury
lo the salaried classes and the waac-j
earners. Yet scarcely was tho provia-j
ion made for thc redemption of the
greenbacks, before wo seemed to have I
forgotten the torriblu evils which thcyj
had caused. Consequently wo allowed
congress to pass a law preventing thc
retirement of thu greenbacks and two
laws providing for inflating our cur
rency with silver. 1 beliovo now that
business men should join in. a campaign
of education to make thc public under- J
stand that gold inflation is just as dis
astrous as silver inflation.
"Monetary contraction and mcntary
expansion arc evils from whatever cause
thoy may conic. Thc lesson of tho hour
is that wo may suffer from gold infliu
tion which comes from natural causes
just as truly as from inflation, through
legislative enactments.
"Tho weight of the gold dollar re
mains fixed hut its vuluo or purchasing
powor docs not. To be so careful about
tho size of the gold dollar and so in
different to its purchasing power is
as absurd as it would bo to stipulate
carcfullj' ns to tho tiro of tho package
containing broakfaat cereals, but to
take no notice of how much ccrual it
really contains.
" Uurlng tho last fifteen years al
though tho gold dollnr has remained
the same in size, its purchasing power
has fallen to. two-thirds of tho dollar
of tifteou years ago.:;

LOXDOX. Xov. IS. Any idea thp Ifl
Turkish government may hav H
had of bencfitinir by continued Iflj
resistance must be shattered by HH
today's n errs of tho fall of ?.lonatir. (fll
In the capture of that important HH
town the Servians took three pasha. ffl
including the commander-in-chief,
Zckki Pasha. 0.O0U men aud fort H
soven guns, thus achieving the greatest HH
individual success of thc war. Ijfl
Monastir was the second city of iui
portanco in Lhiropcan-Turkey. It wa:
Turkey's stronghold" iu Macedonia, and
by its- downfall Macedonia passes coin- fl
plctcly out of Turkish hands. H
"V7hut. part the Greeks played in thn H
capture has not been ascertained. II IH
is known that tho Greek army was IB
marching to the assistance of the W
Servians, and it is supposed tho Grcoks IH
wore able to cut off tho Turkish retreat l9
to thc south. HH
Tho Servians naturally will bo elated HI
at this victory, which outshines thc cap- HI
furo of Salyniki, and must have great HJj
moral clfcct- on the futuro coarse of th'; H
Turks Again Silent. H
Another of tho strange alences that IH
have bcon characteristic of thisivarap- IH
pears to have fallen over Constantinople, IH
; front which only brief dispatches have IH
been received, telliuc of tho resumption jflj
of tho Tchntalja battle and that the buI- IH
tau has made a fresh personal appeal HH
to the Kuropcan iovcj-oigns Lo inter- (fli
vene for tho termination of tho vrar tflfl
Quite S3 little may he expected to corns nfl
of this appeal as of tru previous at- Hfl
tempt at mediation by tho powers. fl
"With cholera and typhus ravaging her iui
demoralized army and a powerful IQ1
enemy hammering at tho gates of the ' SMt
capital, Turkoy must again appeal to nfl
tho allies for -terms. Undoubtedly the ffl
obioet of tho commanders in ordering UB
tho attack on tho Tchutalja lines was (nfl
lo compel this course. It seems incr&d- fjHH
iblc that Bulgaria, for ihc moro glory of tffl
a triumphal entry into a city sho does (nH

Reports Unreliable. Bfl
Turkish reports, even the ofEcers' of- jiH

little nttention con he paid to the ffjl9
dispatch about Tchatalja iasue'd in Con- fill
stantinoplo Sunday and -Mouday. Thc ijnHR
engagement was probably little moro 5(m3h
