DEPARTMENT IS ALL AGOG No One Knows What Other Changes Are to Be Made?Outsider . Gets Good Place. Secretary MacVeagh, from his summer home In Dublin. N. H., te directing a se ries of chances among important officers of the Treasury that is creating some thing of a sensation In the Treasury De partment. Just how much farther these changes will go, if any. Is not known among those in the department willing to tell. The moet that is known is that Mr. MacVeagh is seeking chiefs among tthe officer# of the Treasury fully In sympa thy with the reorganization plans that have been outlined, and which are to go farther. The announcement Saturday of the de motion of W. W. Ludlow, chief clerk of the department for many years, was fol lowed today by the announcement of the demotion of George Simmons, for many years chief of the stationery division of the Treasury at a salary of $2,500, and the appointment in his place of Frederick W. Weston of the government printing office. Also Gets Demotion. The announcement is also made of the demotion of W. M. Imlav, assistant super intendent of the building, - and the ap pointment of E. H. Jemison to succeed him. Mr. Weston, who goes to the head of the stationery division in place of Mr. Simmons, is one of the three men who served on the special committee on print ing of the Treasury, Messrs. Chance and Leet being the other two. Mr. Leet's friends ' expected to see him made chief clerk of the department, instead of Mr. Wilmeth, and It is understood he is to receive an important promotion from Sec retary MacVeagh when there is an open ing. Mr. Leet has worked for over a year on the reorganization plans of the SecreUfry, serving for a long time under Charles D. Norton, the father of reor ganization. now private secretary to President Taft. In Place Twelve Tears. George Simmons, who becomes an $1,800 clerk In the office of the chief clerk, was for twelve years head of the station ery division of the department. Mr. I in lay, who has been relieved of the position of assistant superintendent and made a $1,000 clerk, was confidential clerk to Leslie M. Shaw when the latter was Sec retary of the Treasury'. He was formerly employed lr the Navy Department as a clerk of class 4. He was made assistant superintendent of the Treasury building over three years ago. Mr. Jemison, the successor of Mr. Im lay, is one of the best known men of the Treasury. He was appointed as a cabinet maker from New Castle, Del., in 18X5, and in 1800 became foreman of the car penter shop. The carpenter shop was abolished some time ago, and Mr. Jemi son has been serving as a clerk in the office of chief clerk. His salary as as sistant superintendent will be $2,500 a year. Architect's Powers Enlarged. The Treasury made this statement ^n connection with the changes in the Treas ury: "Coincident with the changes in the personnel in the Treasury, the super vision of the large force of custodians, watchmen and janitors of federal build ings throughout the country will be trans ferred from the chief clerk to the super vising architect. The architect already has control of the appropriations for in spection. repairs and mechanical equip ment. By extending his Jurisdiction a duplication and overlapping of work will be avoided, and a division of responsi bility will no longer exist. The supervis ing architect will also be charged with the responsibility for the 'fuel, lights and water' appropriation, as well as that for the pay of janitors. This change will make necessary the transfer of several clerks from the office of the chief clerk to that of supervising architect." FIERCE BLAZE IN HOLD RAGES FOR TWELVE DAYS 0teamer California Reaches Havre, Trance, With Cargo Afire. The Crew Exhausted. HAVRE. France, September 12.?The French freight and passenger steamer California arrived from New York today with a Are that has been fought for twelve days still burning briskly in her hold. The crew was pretty well exhaust ed and called upon the city firemen to finish the Job. The latter proceeded to flood the craft and hope to save part of the cargo. The California had sixteen passengers, who were glad to get ashore unharmed. Becond-Class Passengers Only. The steamer, which carried only second class passengers, and not many oI them, le owned by the Compagnie Generate Transatlanticue. She sailed from New York for Havre August 27 with a load of merchandise. September 1 a puff of smoke rose from one of the hatchways and warned the master of trouble below. A hurried investigation uncovered a blase that had been working its way in to the cargo until it got a start that was too much for the crew. From the moment of discovery until the California drew into the harbor today her sailors had little rest. They were suc cessful, however, in keeping the flames below decks. REDMEN IN SESSION.

TO CARRY CHAIRS AROUND Light, Movable Desks Also to Pe Tried in First Grades. KEEP PUPILS NEAR TEACHER Idea to Remove Fear of Formality by Making "Family" Groups of Little Ones. To take away the old fear of the stilf i disciplined schoolrooms and make them into a nice little meeting place, where children have a splendid time, and in j cidentally learn more and better lessons than children ever learned before, an en I tirely new experiment will start next j Monday which will result in an enormous ! investment in new furniture if the scheme j is shown to be practicable. It is believed at the Franklin School,* where the brains of the schools are found, that the ex | periment will mark the first step in an entirely new method of teachirtg the | very young school children The idea is from the brains of Stephen \ E. Kramer, director of. intermediate in I struction, and John A. Chamberlain, su pervisor of manual training, and is brand j new in school circles. , The scheme has to do with the little stiff-legged desks which the children in I the first and second grades have studied at from the early times when desks sup planted the old-fashioned ??forms." The desks sit in rows, formal and formidable, land the black iron legs of the desks and the stifTness with which these little pieces of furniture sit on the floor all add to the strictness of discipline which in these latter days is beginning to be looked upon as having disadvantages as well as ad | vantages. Movable Table Desks. Mr. Kramer has devised a little table | desk, only a few pounds in weight, which | any first-grade child can lift up and carry around the room. Mr. Chamber lain drew the plans and made the mod els. A little chair goes with each small table'desk, and both de?k and chair can be picked up and carried anywhere in th? schoolroom. . _ The idea is to get away entirely from the old-fashioned penitentiary-like school room air for the younger children. Mr. Kramer is going to put these little port able tables and chairs in two of the ?'practice schools"?namely, the grades at the Force and the Franklin schools. Practice schools are the show pieces of the educational plant. Children who attend them have a distinct advan I tage over those who attend ordinary first and second grades. Teachers newly ap pointed, as a rule, are assigned to first grades, and to be promoted in salary to any great extent they have to be as signed to higher grades. The result is that there is a constant drain on the lower grades for teachers, and naw ap pointments are being made in the lower grades faster than anywhere else. However, a few teachers who have the gift of teaching the very young are kept in the first grades at comparatively hlgn [ salaries. These are the teachers of the | "practice schools*," and the advanced ex periments in pedagogics are intrusted to I them. ?11 Can Sit Near Teacher. It will' be with two of these gilt-edged [teachers that the new experiment of I "gather round me, children, ' will be made. Tile children will be taught to use their desks only when they have to. When the teacher wants to tell them a simple tale of how one and one two. they will pick up their little c|jRlr". push aside the desks and alt tfa< her's chair in a very fascinating little family group. The chairs and desks have rubber-tipped feet, so there will be little hlne'thl8 way the teacher will get right in among her children. When she i? dem onstrating at the blackboard the little boys and girls will bring their chairs iand sit close to her. As every one the present method of having straight and stiff lines of desks and chairs makes It Imperative that some of the children iiiKSto ?t UT ?ir In The idea will gain favor. It *? believed, and will also take away a little oflhe first fear of the schoolroom that small children have. 1 SUGAR CASE CONVICTS SEEK TO ESCAPE JAIL Court Hears Arguments for Arrest of Judgment?President Re fuses Clemency. NEW YORK,. September 12.?Judge [ Martin in the United States circuit court j today heard argument by John B. Stanchfleld on a motion asking for ar rest of judgment and the setting aside of the verdict of conviction against Charles R. Heike, former secretary and treasurer of the American Sugar Refln | Ing Company, and Ernest W. Oerbracht, superintendent of the docks, who were found guilty last June for conspiring to defraud the government In the under weighing of sugar.

Hennessey and Thomas Kehoe, the sugar weighers, who were sentenced, along with Oliver Spitzer, the dock su perintendent. for frauds on the Williams burg docks of the sugar trust.

In point of number of contestants and the representation of the fleid this meeting has all others eclipsed. There were 193 registrations of players when the tournament began, so that the cor rected list of actual starters shows that the field will reach 200?double the num ber of starters last year at Chicago. William C. Chick, up to this forenoon the only notable absentee among the Massachusetts contingent of players, was admitted to play, his entry having been sent in the regular way, but was lost In transmission. Chick Is a former Inter collegiate champion and a formidable player. Western Stars in Form. The western coterie of youthful stars, the two Egans, H. C., twice holder of the national title, and U. F.; -Chick" Evans, western open champion; Sawyer, Hunter and the others are quite up to the standard of their home perform ances. Evans came east yesterday, never before having played on an eastern course, and without much ado his first practice game got him around in 77. There seems to be no denying the west ern youth. The Washington group of players rap idly got Into the swing of tnlngs. They expressed themselves as being greatly pleased at the course. John Davidson of the Columbia Clu*> was the first of the Washington starerj to get away. He got away a lo? hole straight on the line. The longe tole of the starters be fore noon was at of John G. Ander son, former *afc jsachusetts champion. His tee shot won 25 yards better for distance than that of anybody else. P. W. Whetmore, who carries the hopes of many followers of the game, was the first to finish. This is his home course His card was 78-a41 and a37. He missed a three-foot putt for a 3 at the home green.

Davidson, the Washington player, got a poor start. He was frequently in bunk ers and traps and took 52 for the out ward Journey. He got a 42 for the sec ond nine, but his card of 94 put him out of the qualification. K. E. Mosser. the Yale College golfer, got around in 87. and it is extremely doubtful if that score qualifies. Egan was the first of the western play ers to finish. His play was of the in-and out order, with a 7 at the ninth hole and a 2 at the sixteenth. He was frequently in bunkers and traps. Travil Popular Idol. Walter J. Travis, the former world's champion, was out In 3<l with but two 5's for the first nine holes. Coming In he had 445 for the tenth, eleventh and twelfth holes. Should he sustain that game he will leave the field of those fin ished at 1:30 o'clock. Up to that time there were but two scores better than 80. Travis' card for the first nine holes: 4. 3, 4, S, 4, 4, 3, 4, 5?16. Travis was the popular idol apparently, for his was the largest gallery of the day. He was hold high on his record shot to the home hole, 400, and had a 4 for a 70. The former world's champion took two putts, played 70, two strokes better than the leading golfer to finish at 2 p.m. His card for second were 448. 664, S54, 40, 36. 76. Harold Weber, semi-finalist In 1907 of Inverness, got around In 80. He played with J. W. Anderson of Woodland, who had set a starting pace in practice. To day. however, he was ten strokes worse than his practice play, and finished in 82. Ellis Knowles of Pensacola, Fla.. one of the leading southern players, took 83. Aside from a few holes, his going was productive of high-class golf. The same may be said of the play of F. A. Martin, a Vermont golfer, who negotiated the 18 in 81. He had two sixes going out, but none In his second nine holes of play. WRECK FATAL TO TWO. Engineer and Fireman Killed When Train Is Derailed. KNOXVILLE. Tenn., September 12.?

The principal business today, after the convention had been called togeth er by President Williams was an ad dress by Lawrence O. Murray, control ler of the currency. Mr; Murray met ?with the association in Chicago a year ago. He referred to the co-operation that has been going on between super visors of state banks and the officers of the national banking system of the country. He said that a broader field had developed for co-operation between the two great forces controling the banking systems of the country. He alluded to the co-operation between federal and state authorities before a national bank is chartered. He said that applications for creation of na tional banks are now referred not only to national bank examiners in the proper district, but to state supervis ors of banks. He said that these in vestigations are carried so far that if there Is evidence of insufficient busi ness for a national bank in a commun ity a charter is refused. This co-opera tional or state, and the country, gen istence years ago. All officials, na tlonl or state, and the country, g?n-' erally, he stated, are interested in strong banks. He appreciated the con fidential information supervisors of state banks are giving when appli cations are referred to them. Charters Refused. "By the advice you have given me," he said. "I have refused to charter na tional banks where state banks already served the community well and efficiently and where another bank would irrepar ably injure the existing ones, and I also have been able to keep out of the na tional banking system men who organised state banks and practically ruined them. We have no other way of keeping out bank wreckers than by this muftial co operation. "In the last eighteen months 108 appli cations tor national bank charters nave been rejected. Every one of these 108 rejections was made for one or more of the following reasons: "First?Th? men who applied were shown to have been either incompetent or dishonest, either In state or national banks, or otherwise. "Second?There was not sufficient busi ness to Justify the organization of a national bank In the community; or the banks already there were serving the business Interests well, and an additional bank thrown Into the banking situation would have brought about ruinous com petition and made weak banks where they were already fairly strong, or "Third?The applicants were well known speculators, or were men without stand ing, financial or otherwise, in the com munity. Keep List of Promoters. "Lists of professional promoters are kept in this offlce, and any information we have regarding them is at your serv ice, if needed. "I have been threatened by some bank promoters with mandamus proceedings for refusal of charters for those appli cants whom they represent, although the national bank act confers upon the con troller authority for such action. In no spirit of criticism of previous policies whatever, I make this statement, that It is from the class of hanks which should never have been chartered that our trouble has mainly come, and our weak, struggling and badly managed banks have been recruited. And here is an other field where we may do good work by co-operation. I^et us adopt a Arm, but just, policy with regard to all appli cations, by my giving due consideration to the state banks, and you in turn to the national banks, and we will have stronger and better managed banks and fewer failures. "If you will furnish me with a list of rejected applications for authority to or ganise banks in your states, and the rea sons for their reaction, I will do like wise. Indeed, I will do better than that. If you do not for any reason care to give me a list of applications you have rejected I will in any event give you a list of those rejected In this offlce, if you desire. I do this for the reason that I know that certain men who have been refuted a charter for a state bank at once applied for a national bank charter, and In other rases men who have been refused a national bank charter in turn applied to the state authorities for permission to establish a state bank. "Would it not be well if the state ex aminers for several states were to meet annually and discuss the same questions which come up for consideration by the national bank-examiners? Of course, the ideal thing would be to have the state and national bank examiners meet In Joint convention, and I am favorable to this, except In the states where the state examiners and the state supervisors are prohibited by law from conferring with any one. Co-operation, you know, means that each party does his share In giving information as well as receiving it, and where there is such a provision of state law prohibiting the co-operation that brings about an actual comparison of conditions no good could result from any such Joint conventions of ex aminers."

I have seen no one. Work begun. Devotedly. Robert." "I hope." she said, "the wild stories about Mr. Chanler and myself wilt now be set at rest " I asked Mme. Cavelierl about the state ment that Mr. Chanler had made all his Income over to her exoe>pt fJW a month, which she had allowed him to ke^> for his own use. "It Is not for me." she replied, "to answer that question, so long as my hus band has said nothing about it. It seems to me that my role is to let him apeak first on such a matter. If he <*<u-es to do ao. I will say, however, that I hare never received any money from him." Tone Is Contemptuous. In the tone of the beautiful cantatrlee there might be detected Just the slightest suggestion of contempt, and her faoa seemed to harden a little as she spoke. I abked her, with apologies for the possible indiscretion of the question. If she would care to say whether her marriage with Mr. Chanler now ap peared to her to have been a mistake. With what seemed a half second of hesitation, she said: "At another time I might answer that, but not now." "Don't you feel." 1 pursued, "that a divorce will be the outcome sooner er later?" Again that half second of hesitation, and she replied: "It is impossible for me to say whet the future may bring forth." Is Far From Well. Mme. Cavalierl Is not looking quite her former self, and she acknow ledged that she was far from well. She still feels the painful effects of her recent operation. She does not expect to sing anywhere in America In the coming season except at Boston, where she will appear at ten performances under the management of Henry Russell. "I shall have my own repertoire." she remarked Joyfully. "Including the 'Vie de Boheme." "rosea/ 'Thais' and both Manons?that of Massenet and that of Puccini. After the Boston sea son I expect, some time In March, to go to St. Petersburg to sing before the cxar. I am not studying the role of Alda for the first time. I never before felt that I could undertake It, because I did not want to darken my complex Ion. but I have changed my mind. It eppeals to me now most strongly." a laundry trust In Washington Is still In progress In the office of the United States attorney. The testimony gathered so far. it is understood, is not in condition to be presented to the grand jury and if that body does take up the matter It will not be, it Is stated, until the jail eases have been heard and determined As this grand Jury dies October 3.
