PRICES IN MARKET
VARIED GREAT DEAL Though There Were Some Losses of Thursday Recovered the Stock List Was Feverish HILL GROUP CENTRE OF ATTACK Market, However, Met the Effective Support and St. Paul Touched the Highest Level Early in the Day Bank Statement Today Will Not be j Comforting, (By Associated Press.) NEW YORK. Doc. 14.?There was | a great variety and no little feverish hess In the movement of prices in to? day's slock market. The general tone became much better than yesterday and recovery from yesterday's losses j was achieved, but In a very spotty and Irregular manner. The overwhelming share of attention was given to the Northwestern Transit - Continental group. There was evidence early in the day of the further divergent move? ment In the Hill stocks and St. Paul /but the market met effective support and the latter touched its highest j level early in the day. Money continued in strong demand ] today, the call loan rate rising as high as 19 per cent, and receding only af? ter the principal demand had been satisfied. Forecasts of the bank re-j serves to the required legal propor-1 tion of deposits. The hanks appear to have gained on balance on the Interior movement nnd a million dollars has come from California, but this was not sufficient to offset the absorption of $4,581,0001 by the sub treasury. With an indicated cash loss of sev? eral million dol'ars the restoration of] a surplus would be dependent there-1 fore on a very heavy loan contraction. Sentiment is rather confident, bow ever, over a relaxation of the money I market next week. Tomorrow's pay? ments will be made on the govern-1 ment Interest due up to May 1st next, nmountlnp: to some $12,000,000. It is | exnected that the government deposits with National banks elsewhere, to, the] amount of $10,000,000. will begin to | return to Now York next week and the effect of the purchase by the | treasury of $10,000,000 of government bonds also will be felt..

Ilntv it Will Cuutn According! <<> Hie ,\firHi*liiiiil Mytli. One of the most striking of the Xorsc lilltd myths is that in which is pictured the end <>i the universe, when all lite I'.ods of Asgtird und NlfUchclui und the Inhabitants of ?lotunhcliii und Midgard, together wllh llioir habitations, would be destroyed. That tlds catastrophe would come to all the visible creation they firmly believed, for their untaught minds could not conceive of immor? tality. Ami this Is how they pictured the fearful time: Three winters would come upon the earth, one after another, without the tempering influence of a single summer. Suow would fall from every quarter of the heavens, wild storms would sweep over the earth, witli tempestuous winds that nothing could withstand, and the sun would lose its heat. Three other winters would succeed tlie first three, during which red vis aged war would stall; over the uni? verse, leaving blo.id and death in Its ruthless truck. 'Iben the earth would begin to tremble In uncontrollable fear, the sea would rush from its bed, the heavens would lie rent, and the ongles of I lie air would feast upon the still quivering flesh of multitudes of men slain without warning. Fc?ris, the wolf monster, would throw oft* his bonds; the Midgard ser? pent, whose gignullc form encircled the world, would rise from its lair, nnd Loki. the evil genius of the universe, would desert the gods and go back amen' their ? enemies. Surtur would lead his followers t > the Hit*rest bridge, devouring flames' before and behind them, and, having destroyed it In their passage, they would join Loki and tin? frost giants on the battlefield of Vlgrld, where Feurls, the Midgard serpent and the hosts of Hehl lind al? ready assembled Meanwhile Hclmdnll, the watchman of Asgard, the abode of the gods, would sound the alarm with tlie Glnllar horn, summoning the celestial cohorts to the field. Odin, clad in all the splendor of his supreme office, would lead forth the gods in martial array. Fenris, pressing forward, would throw him? self upon Odin with a fierceness that the deity could not withstand, and tlie All Fiithcr would full, pierced with n thousand wounds from the monster's fnngs. Then Vldar, (he son of Odin, would fall like a thunderbolt upon the blood reeking wolf and avenge his celestial fnther's death. Thor, the nil powerful, would slay, with bis great hammer, the Midgard serpent, but even ns tliei monster gave up its lifo its venomous breath would wreak vengeance upon the slayer, nnd Thor would sink down, suffocated to death. Meanwhile Loki nnd Helmdnll have been seeking each other, and. having met, they would fight with the fury of demons until both were slain. ThUi! all over the bloody Held gods nnd giants, good spirits nnd evil, would meet and slay each other, anil when the dreadful etirnngo was ended Sur? tur would send his fiery flames nbroad, nnd tlie universe would be burned. The sun would lose Its light, the earth would disappear, the stars would fall from heaven, and time would be no more! _ Death Foiled Grand Jury. (Special to the Daily Press.) ALEXANDRIA, VA..

SOME DECREASE IK CRASHES Brakes and Carelessness Cause for Much Damage to Property?Total of Collisions and Derailments for Quarter Treated Was 3.103, With a Loss of $2,373,924. ?WASHINGTON, I). C. Hoc. 14.? lu reporting a total of 033 persons killed ami 10,004 Injured during the second quarter <?r 1906 in Its re? cently published accident bulletin the Interstate Commerce Commission declares that the number Is less tliail in the last preceding quarter, but more than in corresponding mun? ter of 11105. "In considering traut accidents alone, however," says the report, "there is a gratifying tllmluu 1 lion both in passengers killed and employes killed, compared with eltti? er of the two earlier quarters men? tioned." For the year ended June, 30, 190G, however, the commission's tlgures show great increases In the total death roll of passengers and em? ployes over the year or 1905, 1904 and 1903. As will be seen in the accompanying table, a total of 4,296 passengers and employes were killed lu this year 3.71IK in 1906, 3.787 In 1904 nnd 3.554 in 1903. However the total of deaths of passengers alone was less in 1900 than In any year since 1903, comparing thus: ? 1900, 4IS; 1905, 537; 11104, 42U. Great Increase in Injured. There is a great Increase of In? jured in the last, report over the preceding three years. There were 11,135 passengers hurt lu 1900. t!,778 in train accidents and 4.4U7 from other causes. In 1905 there were 10,040, in 1901 S,077 and In 1903 t;,*.!7:i. The commission makes no slatemenl as to cause for the lo? ci ease, whether it Is due to growing business, efforts to attain in greater speed or Increased rutlessness of employes, but there are several In? teresting notes in explanation of accidents which are tabulated. From these it would appear that the railway brake, both air and band, is responsible for many accidents. "Brakes did not work" Is a note In many, while the accidental turning of air brake cocks caused severnl bad derailment!!. Larger Number of Collisions. The total number of collisions and derailments in the quarter ended .lime 3d. 1906, was 3,103 (1,588 col? lisions and 1,515 derailments), of which 173 collisions and 153 de? railments affected passenger trains. The damage to ears engines and roadway by these accidents amount? ed to $2,373,924. Derallmelnts due to defects of equipment, 004; to negligence of trainmen and signal? men. S7; unforseen obstruction of track, 62; malicious obstruction of track, 17, and to miscellaneous causes, 394. Carelessness Responsible. Carelessness in the use of block I signals, carelessness in reading or? ders on single track lines and care? lessness of conductors and hrakenien on the trains caused a great many accidents. It is noticeable that in thirty prominent train accidents in the quarter covered by the report the engine driver was at fault just once, and Dial was a case In which a man of twenty-seven years exper? ience ran by an automatic signal. In great, detail are given the cause of accidents to employes In coupling ami uncoupllug car.*. Sixty eight men were killed In accidents of this sort and 813 Injured. "TIP" SAVES CITY $25,000. Evidence of Wholesale Perjury Dis covered at Eleventh Hour. CHICAGO. ILL., Dec. 14.?An an? onymous note of seven words probably saved the city or Chicago $25,000. A seven-year-olil Jewish boy, who has been ill in a hospital, suffering with an Incurable spine disease, was the feature in the case around which the plaintiff's] lawyers had built an apparently Im? pregnable battery of facts The case ended in Judge Chet laln's court after a nine days' bat? tle with a verdict against the boy. This verdict was reached after his relatives and physicians had testi? fied that on November 14, 1903, the hoy's trouble had begun as the result, of fallng Into a hole in a sidewalk. The "tip" which turned the tide or the case just as the city's law? yers had about given up hope was found on the desk of Assistant City Attorney S. C. Herron. It was not signed, and rend as rollows: ? "Go to the West Side Jewish Hos? pital." Investigators were sent out and learned that the boy had entered the hospital three weeks before the alleged injury in Morgan street. .The evidence of wholesale perjury will be taken before tho Grand Jury.
