House Appropriation Also Cats Personnel to 11,000 Officers and 115,000 Men. 500 IN WATCH ON RHINE Troops in Panama and Hawaii Cost More Than Whole Army After Spanish War. Wash ixoton, March 18.?With pro visions which would necessitate reduc tion of the slee of the Regular Army to 115,000 enlisted men and 11,000 officers, the army appropriation hill, carrying J270.363.030.67 was reported to-day by the House Appropriations Committee. The amount recommended for the military and non-mllltary activities of the War Department during the coming fiscal year Is a reduction of $116,000,000 from the total appropriated for the cur rent year and $87,996,08?.80 less than budget estimates. The bill requires the return to the United States by next July 1 of all troops stationed In China, 6,50 } men from Hawaii, about 2,000 men from the Pan ama Canal Zone and all but 500 officers and men In the army of occupation on the Rhine. There Is no limitation of the number of men in the Philippines. The withdrawals would leave 5,000 men In the Hawaiian Islands and 6,000 in the Canal Zone. The present actual stTength^of the army was given by the committee as about 13,000 officers and 132.000 men, exclusive of 7,000 Philip pine scouts. Cuts In Appropriation*. An appropriation of $17,635,260 Is recommended for continuance of work on various river and ' arbor improve ments, for which the chief of engineers requested $43,000,000; $12,431,000 for the nir service, against $15,000,000 re quested, and $21,130,200 for the Na tional Guard, about $9,001,000 less than budget estimates. The committee recommended $500, 000 for the chemical warfare service, declaring that sum sufficient. Ar ap propriation of $2,750,000 is recom-i mended for supplies and equipment of the Reserve Officers' Training Corps and $1,800,000 for civilian military training camps. The bill carries $7,740,090 for tha Ordnance Department to meet. In addi tion to other expenses, the cost of main taining a skeleton force a< arsenals "to keep alive the knowledge of the method of manufacture." The amount carried in the bill for sea coast fortifications goes entirely for maintenance of exlfltlng defense* and constructing a limited number of sea coast gune. The total recommended for river and harbor Improvements is about $15,000,000 less than the amount sought by the chief of engineers. None of it will he expended on now projects. For the subsistence of the army the committee recommended $16,550,000, $13,000,000 less than last year, the de crease being due to a reduction to thirty cents per ration. RiprnnlTC Administration. The sub-committee, which epent three months In holding hearings and framing the bill, reported that "the excessive cost of maintaining the regular army over pre-war expenditures" was found to be largely due to the "expensive methods of Its administration." "It flpcrns to bo the policy of thf* Oeneral Staff to station full divisions in Hawaii and Panama," the report said. "Except In times of emergency It Is not believed su"h a policy Is justified, as II will cost as much to maintain these two divisions In Panama and Hawaii as our entire regular army cost us in the years following the Spanish war." Commenting on the cost of maintain; Ing troops on the Rhine, the committt* calls attention to Germany's failure to pay the cost. The committee also de clared that "no adequate reason has been shown for the maintenance of any troops in fCTilna." An annroprlatlon of $426,000 1s rec ommended for the construction, repair and maintenance cut roads, forldgcs an>i trail* in Alaska. The bllt also provides $6,670,000 for prosecution of flood control work on th? Mississippi River and $400,000 for sim ilar activities on the Sacramento River. California. NAVY OF 96,000 MEN IS DENBY'S MINIMUM Says That Is Lowest Figure for Safety. ffperlal PUpatrh to Th? N'nw York Hbkai.d. Ynrk Herald ltnre?ti. ) Washington. D. C.. Marrli IX f In his hearings before the House Ap propriations Committee Secretary Denby made nn earnest plea for a fight ing force of 96,000 men to man the ton nage allotted to the United States under the treaties negotiated by the Arma ment Conference. It was learned to-day, however, that; members of the committee have pre pared a bill cutting appropriations and personnel below the line of safety as fixed by the Secretary. Economies of man-power already have been put Info effect by the Navy De partment, Secretary Denby attempted to show, In anticipation of the desire of Contrress.

This Is the second article of a series supplementary to the revelations of the general crookedness of the bucket shops which The New Yobk Herald has recently published. These articles will set forth the operations of some of the famous swindlers and give detail's of swindling schemes in the past. How these men preyed upon the public should not be forgotten. Another article in this 'series will be published at an early date. In the minds of how many New Englanders of the older generation did The New York Herald's exposure of the present day bucket shop and confidence man awaken memories of the Rev. Prescott F. Jernegan. the genius who extracted gold from sea water? What a sensation he was! And what a raw fake was his! How the unthinking youth of today will scoff when It hears the Jernegan story. It is quite true that It does not soand reasonable that this eccentric clergy man (he was all but a lone worker) should have coaxed more than $900,000 out of the pockets of poor investors by the most glaring of frauds. Yet, the get-rich-quick prestidigitators of the hour are little If any more subtle. Besides, Jernegan's scheme had the virtue of the open air and the glamour of the romantic sea> You saw the machinery operating. You saw mercury lowered in a bucket lnto'^ the surf and you saw It hauled up with the mercury laden with gold. That is more than you get in a bucket sh?P The Rev. P. F. Jernegan occupied the pulpit of a Baptist Church In Mld dletown, Conn. He wbb regarded as somewhat eccentric. His sermons were sensational In a day when to de part from the literal word of the gospels was heresy not to be condoned nor even tolerated. Eventually he preached a sermon wherein he took exception to the New Testament ver sion of the resurrection and his con gregation expelled him. Then followed several years In which the activities and trace of him is lost. Forma Marine Salt" Company. But in September, 1896, Presoott F. Jernegan appeared in the small towns of New England hawking the stock of whaj became the Electrolytic Ma rine Salts Company. His headquar ters consisted of a hemlock shack at Nlantlc and his song was simple- He had, he assured the lambs, discovered a simple process whereby an electric current properly applied to meretiry submerged In the salt water of the open sea would produce gold or, to be more accurate, would attract the free gold that every one believed to abound in the ocean's water. Of course, the process was a secret. Jt was Jerne Kan's own brain child and. naturally enough, it must be preserved to its discoverer. Nothing could be fairer than that, surely. Subsequently The New York (Heralp unmasked Jernegan and his scheme, thereby saving thousands and may e millions of dollars for credulous sal aried folk and small business men who were clamoring for an opportunity to got rich quickly with Jernegan. Herein the facts given to the public by The j New YoffcK Herald (facta adequately proved and which caused Jernegan to sneak off to Europe) will be ad hered to. It seems that William Phelan. a de tective. was approached by one Charles R Fisher, by profession a deep sen diver, who, at the time was engaged as a floor walker in a Brooklyn depart ment store. Phelan. a big. sturdy fel low. was desired for his strength of arm and his keenness of eye and mind. With him safely within the poheme physical safety would be assured- But Fisher did not say this to Phelan. He told the detective that this man Jerne gan had perfected a scheme whereby the free gold in the water of the oceans might be collected by electrolysla Would Phelan care to be made rich? Phelan, being quite human, agreed to give the scheme the benefit of his personal observation and Fisher took him to Jernegan in Nlanttc. Two Mid dletown. Conn., business men. one a florist and the other a jeweler, had acreed to give Jernegan the necessary financial start provided a demonstra tion indicated the venture to be worth while. But Jemegan's name in Con necticut was somewhat below par and he decided to move to Rhole Tsland. Later on it found what was to be its permanent plant in Lubec, Me. Glib Tongrne Win* Victims. It must be explained flrst. however, that long before Jernegan staged Ms demonstration for the Middletown business men In Narragansett Bay he had canvassed New England and bv the mere lightness of his tongue, had taken the pledges and money of sev- | oral hundred clergymen, school teach ers. women with small annuities and even supposedly shrewd business men. I Apparently he applied such moneys immediately to his personal wants, for when Phelan was Introduced to him he was quite penniless. Moreover, he was worrvlng lest the two Middletown prospects should not be satisfied with the coming demonstration. It is more or less difficult to gauge the precise amount Jernegan extracted from the gullible public, Inasmuch as he kept no hooks. However, the demonstration was quite a success. At the end of a wharf extending from a small rocky Island near the shores of Narragansett Bay a rough, three sided shack had been erected. In the floor of the pier a trap door had been cut permitting anything lowered therefrom to sink Into nine feet of water. Within the shark was i a windlass to be used to lower and hoist the bucket. Furthermore, there j was a home made electric battery and a good sized box Inclosing the mys tery. The mystery, of course, was Jemegan's. Later on it developed that the box contained nothing but metal Junk, but It looked Impressive from the 'butslde. From the home made battery ex tended several platinum wlr^s which ran mysteriously through the plnnk it-tr of the nler* nf course. th< y were n erely a part of the general ^n^_"rn' but they, too, seemed impressive. From a wharf on the mainland, and > ? not far from the island, ran a cable which extended to one of the pilings of the island pier. The trap door in the pier floor was so located that a bucket or other container lowered into the water therefrom would descend into the arms of any person at the end of the submarine cable. A few hours before the demonstra tion was to be made for the benefit of the capitalists Jernegan, Fisher, Phe lan and the two Mlddletown business mon met in a Providence hotel. They would wait until dark. It might take all night to effect the miracle. Secrecy wits desirable. Phelan, somewhat con vinced that there was a measure of bunoombe in the whole scheme, but desiring to see It through before de ciding what to do, had been over the ground or, rather, water. HUklOB Good Ihoirint of Gold. On the preceding day he had- gone down to the shore with Fisher and helped the latter to don a diving armor. He knew nothing of the sub marine cable at the time, but was asked by Fisher to stay on the shore holding the life line that was to haul Fisher to safety in case of accident. Fisher was equipped with an oxygen i tank. He explained that he would j need no air pump inasmuch as he | would bo under the water but a brief time and that the oxygen would keep him going for that period. "All I'm doing Is making a scientific survey," explained Fisher. "You see Jernegan says that there is gold In all sea water, but there is more gold in some places than In others. Naturally we want to make a good showing? be fore the financiers." , The party gathered on the island pier and Jernegan was demonstrating how anxious a father of a bright idea can be. He was tinkering with the lotteries and Talking Incessantly. The two Mlddletown business men wore al most as nervous as Jernegan. They j had fetched the necessary chemicals. | Jernegan pleading poverty, and these they dumped into the bucket. Fisher j and Phelan were missing. They were J on the pier on the mainland. At a stated time Fisher clad in his diving armor lowered himself into the water and when Phelan asked him how he was going to make his survey in I the night he told of the cable connect ing the piers. He would follow this, he said. Phelan said nothing, but took hold of the life line and watched F isher disappear. Fisher's Job was an easy one. He would grope his way along the cable until he reached the far end. Then the bucket would be lowered. Into the bucket he threw gold filings and a small gold nugget that had been used by Jernegan in a scarfpin. The bucket, closed by a lid, was metal lined. The mercurial solu tion that had been placed in the bucket before it was lowered absorbed the gold. As soon as Fisher had "salted the pot he returned to shore and he and I holan Joined the party on the island They might have drawn the bucket up at any time after the mercury had ab sorbed the gold, but Just to make it Impressive Jernegan waited until dav hreak. Then, before the delighted eyes of the financiers, he opened tho bucket. Some of the mercurial solu tion had eaten Its way through the metal lining of the receptacle but lid"" WBS en0U*h ,#>ft t0 MtJsfy" any Ckemfata Help Uaaoh Room. They took the mercury to an ns sayer.

March 13.?The appeal brought by the Attorney-General of New York and the District Attorney of Kings county to lwve reviewed the decision of the United States District Court in the Brooklyn Union Gas^ Company case holding: the statutory gas rates of New York confiscatory was dismissed to-day by the Supremo Court The action of the court in the Brook lyn Union case was based on the Su preme Court's decision on the Consoli dated Gas Company cases. In which It held the rates fixed by the State were confiscatory. The State and Brooklyn city official! sought to cxcept the Brooklyn Union case from that decision by contending that the company should have usedJ In 1918 and 1919, during: the period of high operating1 costs, a portion of Its "contingency" fund, which, It was as serted, had accumulated out of Its lib eral surplus earnings during prior pros perous years. Had this fund been re sorted to, they Insisted, there would have been sufficient funds available to bridge the company over the period when the State rates were confiscatory. The company asserted the surplus had been invested in extensions and im provements and that it was not held aa a fund. Issne of Mandate Asked. Brief argument was heard by the court on the motion made by the Con solidated to have the mandate of the court giving effect to its decisions of last Monday issued immediately instead of postponed for the customary thirty days. The attention of the court was directed to the fact that briefs haw been filed asking It to rehear the Con solidated and related cases. Counsel for the Consolidated urged the importance of prompt action, so that the impounded fund would be available, whereas counsel for the District Attor ney of Kings county, speaking for that offlclaT In the Brooklyn Union casesi urg-d the court to withhold the mandate until after it decided whether it would reopen the cases already disposed of. Chief Justice Taft said the court would take the motions under consideration. State Railroad Decision. The Interstate Commerce Commission was held to-day by the Supreme Court to be without authority to authorize or compel the abandonment of a strictly State railroad. Tho decision, which was handed down in a case brought by the State of Texas against the Eastern Texas Railroad Company to prevent that railroad from dismantling under an order issued by the commission, declared that where a railroad lies entirely within a single State. Is owned and operated by a cor poration of that State and Is not a part of another line, and where its continued operation cannot be of more than loonl concern, the commission was without Jurisdiction. "Interstate and foreign commerce will not be burdened or affected by any shortage in the earnings, nor will any carriers In such commerce have to bear or make good the shortage" of the Eastern Texas Railroad, Justice Van Devanter stated in delivering the opin ion, to which there was no dissent. gold from the sea, but had failed of cooperation because of the incidental expense. The beauty of Jernegan's scheme had been Its lnexpensiveness. Business languished. Wall Street was Jernegan's objective, but Wall Street, having troubles of Its own at the time, was balking. Jernegnn con fined to canvas the country districts, getting |100 here and as much as $500 there. Ho would take anything from a dollar to 11,000. He saw the end in sight and was determined upon a cleanup. Suddenly In the summer of 1S98 he vanished. The stock of the Electroly tic Marine Salts Company, which had soared to $10, fell to 50 cents, and i then disappeared utterly. There was the usual scramble and the regulation lamentation. At least $1,000,000 In cash had found Its way Into Jernegan's pocket Probably that much more had been expended by capitalists to erect the plant and meet the overhead expenses of the exploitation during the year that It flourished. OTrrnhflmrd by Ilia Own Plan. Later on It wns discovered that on? of the reasons that Jernegan couldn't keep going was that he had made the mistake of growing too fast. The mo ment he entered the bigger plant In Lubec he found that the close liaison between himself and his diver. Fisher, had been interfered with. There were ! too many people Involved. It would have been better to have kept on op erating in a small way. Now and then the buckets had failed I to bring up gold. That was because Fisher couldn't get away to salt them. Besides it required yiore than a single cable to guide Fisher through this deeper water to the bucket. The big ger the plant the more embarrassing were the difficulties. Besides Phelan was trying to convince the authorities that the scheme was crooked, and it took him a whole year to move them to official Investigation. So Jernettnn, overwhelmed by the monster he had reared, fled. He turned up in Havre with his wife and son. He remained in France under the name of LiOUls Sinclair and was supposed to have taken about $300,000 with him, but so chaotic were the affairs of the Electrolytic Marine Salts Company that this can be but a guess. Jernegan solicited and received sub scriptions that the company never ; heard of. Jernegan became Involved In several shady deals while In Kurope. and la | supposed to have been the victim of schemes as wild ns his own. How much money he lost irf only a conjec ture, but, according to his own story ' later he Invested a certain amount In an Kngllsh company that purported to have found a way to extract gold from sea water. This may or may not be the truth. The fact is, however, that the Amer ican authorities found It impossible to extradite Jernegan. and about 1902 he bobbed up in the State of Washing ton, where, under nn assumed name, he tried to get a position teaching school. Somehow or other his Iden tity became known and he fled to Man itoba. In 1903 he went to the Philip pines, where he managed to get a place In the Manila Normal School at a salary of 11.500 a year. He left that post within a year and there the trail ends. This much Ift known: When Jernegan appeared?in Manila he was penniless.
