Upon examination the warden discovered one dead robin in their possession and he immediately put the two under arrest. It seems that the two had just started out on their hunt and would have if not detected killed several more birds.

The details received here during the day regardtng the earthquake in.Calaibria yesterday ev ery way tend to ehotw that the damage done was much more extended than at first estimated and that the loss of life has been great. No bodies had been recovered from the ruins until 8 o'clock this evening; at that hour about two hundred were taken out. It Is now estimated that the deaths will surpass five hundred, but it is Impossible to get accurate In formation on this subject as many vil lages are still cut oft by the floods and the destruction of roads and tele giyiiph lines and iro word from them can bp had. Thi4 earthquake bids fair to rival that of 1905. LAY THREE WEEKS IN HAD R (Continued from First Page.) assistants or patients is a matter for the medical men to decide. "We were not sure that the town of New Haven would reimburse us," said Mr. Coddington, "if we went ahead with the burial of the body, so the matter dragged along from day to day waiting for the man's relatives, or the town of Seymour, to make ar rangements to take it away. Perhaps for a day or two the fact that the body was in the morgue was forgotten, but not for any great length of time. Yes terday the undertaker came from Sey mour and claimed the body. It was in the morgue and we gave it to him. It did not go into the morgue to see it before we delivered it." When asked last night ,what he thought of keeping the body of Mr. Kobel In the New Haven hospital for a couple of weeks without saying any thing about it, especially when the person had died of typhoid fever, Health Officer Wright, who has been in office for almost a decade, said that he would have to wait before he ex pressed himself for publication. He said he had not read about the case in the newspapers yet, and would have to become acquainted with the facts bslore he gave out any statement COLOSSAL SUM , JOJIDE STORM (Continued from First Page.) matic, episode of the day was the emptying of millions of money into stock exchange through a pool headed by J. P. Morgan and other financiers In order to avert a ruthless selling out of stocks held by brokers which was threatened because of their Inability to obtain renewals of loans on which these sfocks had been carried. Charges Usurious Rates. A remarkable condition brought about this extreme stringency in money, which had gradually forced the interest rate up to an almost unprece dented figure. Certain large interests of great financial resources had been charging recently what was in effect, if not legally, usurious rates of Interest on call loans. One Institution that had been engaged In this practice was it self a member of the clearing house and was severely criticized by other bankers for its action on the ground that this "added ah unnecessary com plication and strain to the money sit uation. As a result of the criticism this institution withdrew Its support and declined to offer money on call on the stock exchange. The effect of this was to run the rate for money to-day up to 100 per cent, and when that flg- ure was quoted an extremely sharp de- ing down to par. Rockefeller Supports One Bank. Notwithstanding the high rate for call money that might have been ob tained the National City bank, John D. Rockefeller personally, and other prominent moneyed . interests sent funds to the stock exchange to be lent at the normal rates of 6 per cent. These sums, however, were not suffi cient to meet the demand and for a time there was great confusion and hurried selling of stocks on the ex change. At the time when the excite ment was at its height the announce ment was made that a pool had been formed with J. P. Morgan at Its head to come to the rescue of the brokers for whom it was necessary to provide funds at once in order that they might carry the stocks they were holding for their customers. The Morgan pool brought a sum of money amounting to about $25,000,000 Into the loan corner of the exchange where It was quickly distributed in such lots as wold w most effective in rendering support. ! Relief Instantaneous. The effect of this relief meamira was instantaneous and the rate on mti money dropped from 100 per cent, to 10 per cent. Stocks advanced more van- Idly than they had declined and It wn only a few minutes until Union Pa cific, the market leadar. Wfl CA?1tn at 105. Other stocks wre similarly affected and the rally was complete. oeioom tr ever haa the veterans of finance seen a great situation saved so quickly and so effectively by such a Napoleonic stroke. When the stock exchange closed every one was getting all the money he wanted. The close was marked by a memorable scene In wnieri the brokers gathered around the principal trading posts and gave three cheers for J. P. Morgan and the mem bers of the pool which had saved, the day. $100,600,000 Contrlbntcd. The aggregate amount "of money which had been contributed In order to weather the storm and restore confi dence assumes truly colossal propor tions. Roughly estimated It Includes $25,000,000 which Secretary Cortelyou deposited In the New York banks, $26, 000,000 which the Morgan pool brought to the floor of the stock exchange; lu.uw.uw wnicn John D. Rockefeller deposited with the Union Trust com pany as a means of stemming the tide at the Trust Company of America: and finally another $50,000,000 which it is understood Mr. Rockefeller stood ready to advance to meet any further -stress of conditions, In all considerable In excess of $100,000,000. To Rehabilitate Knickerbocker. The developments of the evening dur ing which, as was the case last night, there were several conferences, Includ ing the issuance by State Comptroller Martin H. Glynn of a statement on the local financial situation and the an nouncement of plans for the rehabM tatlon of the suspended Knickerbocker. The tentative plans for the . Knloker bocker as outlined by one of the offlc ltls following a meeting of the board f directors late to-day, provides for the formation among the directorate of a pool of some $5,000,000 to guaran tee the redemption within two years ot Interest-bearing certificates which will be offered in settlements of accounts against the company, which cannot be liquidated at the present time. As a. preliminary step, it was said, that & receiver for the company would be appointed within a couple of days. with the approval or the directors. When the success of the certificate Is sue is-assured, the board will ask that tie jesoript be terminated with a view to a resumption of business. President A. Foster HIgglns has ot rered to put $5,ooo,ooo in the pool. It was given out that after Investigation the securities left for the Ice loans by former President Barney had been found sufficient for the amounts. Steadily Improving, Says Cortelyou, This evening Secretary Cortelyou said: "The sultation seems to be steadily improving. It does not seem to be that there need be, practically, any cause ror anxiety. It was learned to-night that, al though there had been a steady de mand for treasury funds during the day, the $25,000,000 proffered by the secretary had by no means been dis persed when the examination of col lateral at tne suD-ireasury was con. eluded for the day. Pittsburg Banks Ask No Aid. Pittsburg, Oct. 24. Late to-day Walter D. Uptegraff, secretary of George Westinghouse, was appointed receiver for the Nernst Lamp com pany, the fourth Westinghouse con cern embarrassed by the severe moijey market stringency. The United- States court placed his bond at $50,000. The condition in financial circles here to-day was normal. The Pitts- buxg stock exchange remained closed all day and will probably not resume transactions until near Monday. A meeting of the Pittsburg Clearing House association was held and an nouncement was made following the adjournment that no banks had re quested aid. Prominent bankers stated to-night that the situation here is well In hand, and that the trouble was rapidly disappearing. Run On Providence Bank. Providence, R. I., Oct. 24. For three hours to-day a steady stream of depositors passed before the window of the paying teller of the Union Trust company of this city and withdrew the, amounts they had deposited with th Institutions. The demand began at noon, and when the bank closed its doors for business at the usual hour, 3 o'clock, there were between 100 and 150 depositors waiting in line to with draw their savings. Holiday Brings Relief. Goldflelds, Nev. Oct 24. All banks In Goldfleld were closed to-day in con sequence of the governor's proclama tion declaring a holiday. The procla mation came as a great relief to local banks. The state banks and trust company had already suspended pay ments. Better Feeling In Carson. Carson City, Nev., Oct. 24. There was a decidedly better feeling in bus iness circles to-day. The Nye and Armsby company bank with its branches will open Monday and its president, Frank Golden, asserts, that all depositors will be paid in full. MISTAKES 11 Mill MIS (Continued from First Page.) records of the commission, he did not believe that he had a right to aee his papers. Tliat he considered was at the discretion of the board. They might or might not allow it as they saw fit and moat certainly he .could not have any right to see tho papers Of any one else. 'Do-you think if would be wrong to snow him his own papers?" asked tho senator. 1 think It would bo rleht for him to ask to see them and that it would lie In their discretion to allow it." He also thought it would ba rieht for him to ask whether the marking in this case was done by one man, by a sub-committee or by the board, but was doubtful as to the right to ask the name of the marker. Asked If he really considered the civil service a good thing, he replied, "I do." tie tnomtnt. nowever. tnat tne Dresent civil service law was at fault in that It allowed a man who had passed much lower than some other to be appointed, without the other man being given a show. Hlo Idea was that the highest man should be given a temporary ap pointment, and lr satisfactory should receive the permanent appointment. In his statement to the committee, Carroll had laid some stress on the fact that somev of . the persons who were taking the examinations had started to write before the papers were lven out. Morris said that It would be an inter esting thing to know what these men were wriung. tie aammea tnat some years ago there had occurred leaks in the board, but held that this could hardly have been a case of any one writinsr on the examination, as it is the custom now to start the examina tion with a dlotatlon test. men tnis Question was Dut to nim. "Do you think there might be a leak in the present board T' to which the answer was that he knew of no case. ana while It might, of course, be pos sible with any board he did not think so. Asked regarding his view of the in vestigation which Mr. Carroll has startea. Mr. Morris said that any in- veslgatlon under proper conditions wouia 00 no Harm to anyone. He also held that Carroll would have the right to have the whole board review his pa pers. in closing: the committee asked his opinion under the charter of the power or tne Doaro 01 aiacrmen to act as a court of inquiry to summon witnesses in a oase like this and Invesiente the matter. Mr. Morris said that while ho had not looked up decisions on the mat ter, he thoujcht the charter did give that body power to hold an Iquiry and summon under eupoenas witnesses la the case, for the purpose of inquiry, al though he did not believe It oould en force any recommendation or make any order as tho result of the Inquiry. as tne civil service commision was not represented st all tn tiearlna: was adjourned until next week with no re port In order that the commission's side or the question may be presented.
