VESSEL SIXTY DAYS OVERDUE.
Parents of the Naval Officer Live
in St. Louis, and He Will
Visit Them in a
Fejv Days.
To H. J. Elson. Ensign In the United
6tates Navy, whose parents and sister re
side In St. Louis, credit Is due that the
gunboat Manila, one of Dewev's cap
tures from the Spaniards, at present does
not lie at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean
Kith its crew of 197 men.
"With the boat's high-power piston shat
tered, the vessel was helpless, 1,000 miles
from San Francisco. 1,200 miles from
Honolulu, and 1.300 miles from Bre
merton, Its destination. By working night
and day, during gales and in calm weather.
ENSIGN H. J. ELSON.
Naval officer who saved the gunboat
Manila from wreck and whoso
parents live In St. Louis.
Elson managed to partially repair the piston
and put the engines In working order so
that it was possible to make San Francis
co, the nearest port.
Ensign Elson was graduated at th head
of his class from Annapolis in 1S93. His
home originally waa at Meridian, Miss., but
three ears ago bis parents, Mr. and Mrs.
Louis C. Elson, moved to St. Louis. They
and the young officer's sister, Mrs. W. A.
Zelnlcker, reside at No. 4&S Washington
boulei ard.
At the battle of Manila, the gunboat Ma
nila, then flying the Spanish flag, sur
rendered to the United States ship Petrel.
In 1S9), the craft was commissioned in the
United States and did elective service In
the Philippines. On April IS of this year It
left lilanua for Bremerton, whero it was
to go out of commission for u time. After
a alftlcult experience at ecu, owing to a
tihortuge of coal, the Manila reached Hon
olulu on May It, departing from that place
on M.iy IS.
The piston gave way without warning,
and was shattered Into a thousand pieces.
is.n8ii.-n JElfcon ranked also us chief engineer
and upon him deioivect the apparently ltn
possiBle task of remedying the cUuaUon. He
had the assistance of brother ornceis, grad
uated of Anuapoils, but. au loid, oincers and
men were not enough for the work. On
June S. a heavy gale overtook the ship and
U drifted far from its course. Despite the
rocking of the vessel, Elson kept his post,
although handling UN-pound pieces of steel
with the boat tossing about waa no easy
matter, finally a makeshift substitute
piston was put In plaix, and the elnglnes
were once more started. The disabled ves
sel reached San ITranclsoo June 13, sixty
days overdue.
The ManJa is not large, having a displace
ment of LS00 tons, length of 09.3 feet, width
of 51,2 feet and only 13 feet draft. The break
ing or a piston is a serious matter, auon an
accident caused the loss recently of the
British gunboat Condor with oOicers and
men. The other officers of the Manila were:
lieutenant Commander W. ". Ualsey,
Lieutenant Commander J. A. Dougherty,
Ensign W. J. Beggs, Ensign L. E. Cotton
and inslgn J. A. uchofteld. R. C. Uolcomb
waa surgeon, and Lexter Tllfany paymas
ter Captains Charles Hill and H. B. Bls
sett of the Marines were also on board.
Ensign 3son la at present in San Fran
cisco, but will visit St. Louis when he can
secure leave of absence.

GERMAN SAVINGS MAY
DOUBLE ITS CAPITAL
Mechanics' National Bank In
creases Dividends From Eight
to Ten Per Cent a Year.
The German Savings Institution is con
templating doubling its capital stock, which
is now $250,000. President John Wahl ad
mitted yesterday that such a step Is likely
to be taken within a short time.
"We have not perfected the details for In
creasing the capital," said Mr. Wahl, "and
I do not care to discuss the matter publicly.
But I cannot deny the report current that
the doubling of the capital is under con
sideration." Richard Hospes, cashier, would not deny
that the capital stock would be raised to
J300.000. Ke simply stated that nothing was
to be said about It at present.
President Wahl, In speaking of the con
templated Increase, intimated that It was
more than justified by the flourishing con
ditions. "Our Institution." he said, "was
never in better shape, and the volume of
business far exceeds what any of us have'
expected. It Is greater than eer before.
While our oapltal at prent 13 only $-50,-004.
we have a surplus of more than $509.
000, and It continues to Increase."
In financial circles the steady rise in
value of German Savings Institution shares
has been accepted as significant. The last
sale of stock reported on 'change was at
$386 a nhare. Yesterday the bid was $113
and none was offered.
Mechanics' Increase Dli Idend.
A surprise was sprung upon stockholders
of the Mechanics' National Bank jesterday
by a notice that the dividends have been
Increased from 2 to 2fa per cent quarterly,
or 10 instead of t per cent a ear. The no
tice also advised that the books for the
transfer of stock would close to-dav. The
next dividend pavment Is due July L
c u. Austin, casnier, said tnere was no
occasion for comment upon the suddenness
of the notice given of the increased divi
dend, and added that In the past the bank
had never given any notice of increases
All stockholders whose names appear on
the record to-day wUl bs entitled to the
quarterly dividend of 2? per cent July 1.
Mr. Austin explained that the law re
quires the tranasfer books to be closed five
days before a stockholders' meeting, and
since a meeting has been called for June 'J6,
no transfers of stock can be entered after
to-day. At the meeting the question of
Increasing the capital stock from $1,000,000
to $2,000,0v0 will be voted on.
The Increased dividend, the cashier
stated. Is fully warranted by the Increased
earnings of the Mechanics' National, whose
surplus has climbed frcm $500,000 to $600,000
since the 20th of last April.

RIGHT-OF-WAY ON THE LEVEE.
Question Raised Concerning Mis
souri Pacific's Privileges.
City officials are investigating the right
of the Missouri Pacific Railway Companv to
track privileges on the levee, between Carr
and Gratiot streets. A single track on this
j route has been down and in use for at
least thirty-three jears and possibly for
a longer time, but City Counselor Bates h3S
been requested to say whether tho right-of-way
privilege did not expire jears ago.
Apparently the ordinance extending the
privileges did not specify a time when they
should terminate, though old laws seem so
Indefinite that a safe conclusion cannot be
reached without a thorough inquiry. How
ever, nearly all railroad bills pased by the
Common Council In the late sixties and early
seventies contained clauses retaining to the
municipality authority to alter, amend or
repeal them at any t me.
On July 15. 1862 a bill was passed allow
ing the North Missouri Railroad Company
to lay tracks on 'First street, from North
Market street to Howard street, thence be
tween First street and the Levee to Lewis
street, along Lewis street to Biddle street
and along the Levee to Carr street. On
March 23, 1869, a bill was passed to allow
the PacIBc Railroad, the St. Louis and Iron
Mountain Railroad, and the North Missouri
Railroad to connect there. This
ordinance is thought to be the one author
izing the track in question.
