Eugene & Prusslng, the well known Chicago law yer, for three years president of the Citizen's association there, called on the president yesterday to present his lice arrested In Water street this afT Tho .,,,,;'" . . . ternoon a man who had apparently been drinking, and who was recognized as one that had been noticed loitering In the lower quarter of the city about a week It was expected that the charge of vagrancy as well as intoxication would be placed against him. When the man, who said his name was John Kelly and that his home is Danbury, was searched at police headquarters, however, money, in bills and coin, came from every pocket, totaling $260 , In cash. He had besides four bank books, two on the New MUford Savings bank, one of which, In the name of John J. Kelly, showed a balance of $919.06 and the other in the name of Francis Kelly a balance of $953.45; one on the Farm ers and Mechanics bank of this city, name John J. Kelly, balance $168.33, and ,ther-fourthspn the City Savings bank, of this clty.'Vme William Kelly,, bal ance $266.53, a "fatal bank balance of $2,807.89. The police were alihost stunned with the Idea that Kelly had escaped from Water street with all that money, and tried to question him closely. He was very hazy in his replies, however, and showed a very queer mental canditlon. He asserted that all the bank books were his. The police will hold him for full in vestigation, particularly to determine the ownership of the savings bank books with the three different namees.

FINANCIAL SKY CLEARER Arrival of Gold Will Make Good Showing for Reserves. New York, Nov, 10. The most event ful week in the financial history of the present generation came to a close on Saturday with conditions much clearer than a week before, but with some clouds still hanging over the financial horizon. The previous week had closed with the disquieting announcement that the New York bank reserves had lost $30,000,000 In cash in spite of de posits by the government during the week of a nearly equal sum, represent ing a net cash loss of 460,000,000. : The bank statement of yesterday changes this situation. While it shows a nominal decrease In required re serves of $13,085,000 more than two thlrcre of this is due to the reserve re quirements, caused by Increase in de posits because of the taking over of loans from the trust companies by the banks. Moreover, the actual cash loss of 4,318,000 is due to the system of av eraging accounts for the entire week, including several days before the ar rival of the new gold. Unless demands ifrom the country are very heavy next week, the arrival of additional gold will more than offset the loss of cash last week and make a creditable show ing for reserves on Saturday next. to ctjre a cold in one day Take LAXATIVE BROMO Quinine Tah leta.

William Green wood is under arrest here in connec tion with the stabbing to death last night of Frank Legitsky, a nineteen year old Polander. Greenwood is a wood chopper and about fifty years of age. It is alleged that Greenwood en tered a house where the occupants were making merry last night in honor of a Polish wedding and was put out. About eleven o'clock last night or shortly af ter Lewltsgy left the house, and al most immediately was heard to cry out. Others coming out of the house saw Interest the statement which Mr. Prus sing submitted, which included the fol lowing: "Currency reform, anti-trust law amendments and railroad regulation naturally will claim the first places In congress attention, general corporation reform In its various phases, may fair ly be classed second in importance. "The first question, that of jurisdic tion of the federal government, will in each Instance be the challenge of the opposition. Successful effort, therefore, must be along the line of the least-resistance, that is to say, in harmony with the principles of state's rights and loyal government, as well as the senti ments based upon these, even if It is extreme, "National control of interstate com merce corporations, as distinguished from national incorporation of all or most corporations, will be readily granted by moat men of both parties. "Compulsory publicity of accounts, the subjection of books, papers and plans to inspection, etc., of govern ment officials will be Easily accom plished. "The new step advised by the As sociation of Attorneys-General, slight ly modified, will be in the right direc tion and will be approved by states rights men and federalists alike. The association recommends that the right to hold stock in any other corporation should be denied to all interstate com merce corporations. "It seems to me that the purpose of this, namely, to compel the real owners of a corporation to do business in their own name, can be achieved by requir ing the corporation eo owning stock In another and' the corporation in wheih It owns stock to list such owners and stock holdings respectively in every case in the department of commerce, thus holding companies will be per mitted, and yet protected against pos sible unjustly discriminating laws. "The change of all state banks and trust companies to national banks, which can be accomplished by a single amendment of the national banking act, will also be popular, and can be along states rights lines. "The proposed change is this: Give national banks two additional powers, and their consequences: "1 To accept and execute trusts by complying with the general state laws on that subject wherever thev exist and in the district of Coltim t j.o accept irust, savings and time deposits and to keep separate accounts of the totals of these, mak ing rules for proper notices of with drawals, and allow a small percent age of reserves as to these deposits. and also the making of solid bond and mortgage and other savings band In vestments of the funds so received. "Thus every national bank becomes the full competitor of state banks and trust companies, and soon the latter will be forced to become national banks. "Gq at the general corporation prob lem in a similar manner. Enlist the States Rights men on your eide. Keen the subject of incorporation and ordi nary control local, a state concern. make the local laws harmonious if pos sible by appointing a commission to in vestigate the entire subject. Get the best talent, Root, Choate, Dillon, Morawetz, Grosscup ana others of that type will be glad to serve for patriotic reasons, and a result will be achieved in the form of a code based on principles and experience suited to our dual government and varied condi tions." The presldontls said to have taken very kindly to several of ttie suggestions. PLUCKY RESCUE, Upset Canoeists Saved by Gallant Work of Companions. s Paterson, N. J., Nov. .10. Some luck and a lot of pluck saved the lives of four members of the Passaic Valley Canoe club who were caught in the swift current just above the dreaded "Little Falls" in the Passaic river early to-day. George Wryght and James Ranken were paddling up stream when their canoe was upset. They clung to the craft for a time, but were unable to right It and were carried rapidly down sstream. Two hundred yards above the falls is Laurel Island. As the current bore them near this patch of land they released their hold on the canoe and Wryght seized an overhanging twig. Ranken grabbed .hold of the other's legs, Thus they clung when In answer to their cries, a boat shot out from the shore, approached within a few yards and was caught In the current. Its oc cupants gave up the rescue and strug gled -back to shore. A second boat made a similar attempt and failed. Then George Curtis and Walter Liv ingston put out in a strong boat and after a desperate fight reached the helpless men and managed to pull them aboard. Nearly exhausted by their ef forts the rescuers with difficulty con trolled their own boat which was with in 200 feet of the brink of the falls when a landing was effected. MEN WERE MURDERED Death Not Accidental to Those Found Beside Tracks. Cleveland, O., Nov. 10.

The annual report of Secretary Taft, to be submit ted to congress at its convening in December, will contain estimates ag gregating $5,525,920 for construction and other work in the coast artillery service during the fiscal year 1909. This construction work Is to provide in part for shelter for the coast artil lery troops authorized by the act of January 25 last, for which it is neces sary to erect thirtj'-two company bar racks, six band barracks and 178 sets of officers' quarters. By the legislation of the last con gress, the coast artillery received an increase of forty-four companies, with a corresponding number of officers.

MONEY TIGHT IN TEXAS. Austin, Texas, Nov. 10. The re fusal of the state deposit banks to supply the necessary cash has forced the state treasurer to suspend pay ment of state warrants, all the avail able cash In the hands of the treas urer having become exhausted. On the different depositories the state has on deposit $1,504,637, amply secured by approved securities and personal bonds. by the Aero club of America during the past year or two, the proposed trial at Plttstleld of the German balloon Pom mern which won the St Louis compe- tltion, and an invitation to French aer onauts to try out their balloons In New England before returning to Paris, are random Instances of the active Interest which New England Is taking in aerial navigation, though these Instances are generally more along the line of sport than science. Although on the 21st of this month occurs the 204th anniversary of the first balloon ascension, ballooning in New England has, up to very recently, been little more than a stereotyped feature of the program at the countpy fair. While such demonstrations have added practi cally nothing to the science they have, as In the case of the first airship which successfully gulled over the "hub" tb,ls summer, brought home to the busy men in the street or field, the growing pos sibilities of ballooning. It Is probably little known that New England has for nearly a score of years taken something of a serious Interest in the problem of aerial navigation. For soycral years one of the few aeronauti cal journals In th world was published by James Means in this city, to which prominent scientists from all quarters of the world contributed the story of their study and experience In aeronau tics. As long ago as 1895 an aeronau tical society was organized In Boston, of which a score of scientists were members With Prof. William Pickering of Harvard university as president. It was its purpose to establish a labora-, tory in the nearby country where well paid scientists might be permanently employed in experiments In aetil flight. A lack of funds and outside Interest In the venture led to Its collapse. The purgose of tbe New England Aero club, now being formed, is under stood to be along less scientific lines, it being maintained that dirigible bal loon has already been doveloped suffi ciently to afford a means of pleasure, and to some extent of practical trans portation. With this Idea to make use of the balloon in the present state and to develop it in whatever way may suggest itself in such practical use, the new club with much wealth and sport ing interest represented artinng Its'pro motors, is expected to become an active factor In American aeronautics. For manv venrs. Professor A. Law rence Rotch of the Blue Hill Bacterio logical observatory. .1ut outside this city, has been quietly at work In the study of aerial conditions, nnil has con tributed much valuable Information of their relation to aeronautics. His latest contribution to knowledge of the at mospheric conditions at great heights was the announcement that a tempera ture of 111 degrees below zero had been rcpentedlv recorded In certain strata of the air a few miles above the earth. I rcsldent Butler, of Columbia, Includes it in Report' to" Trustees. New York, Nov. 10. President Butler of Columbia university makes a plea for further endowments in his annual report to the trustees of the university made public to-night. Pres ident Butler says ' that the total amount of gifts received fn money during the year amounted to $459,070 and on the subject of gifts adds: "From the report of the treasurer, It will be seen that for the year ending June 30, 1907, the deficiency in the cast of maintaining the educational work of the university reached the large sum of $58,109. This sum is ex clusive of the Interest charge of $88,049.- ' Naturally, this result Is ground for grave concern. It points once more and with new emphasis to the undeniable fact, that Columbia university is not sufficiently endowed to carry on the work which has been laid1 upon It. The cost of Instruction Is constantly in creasing and the number of students grows steadily larger. Us was shown in detail in the last annual report, the salaries paid to the teaching staff are far from what they should be. Much that is urgently demanded Is either undertaken at all or is Insuffl-' ciently provided for. It Is within tho mark to say that an additional free ln come of $100,000. a year is an absolute necessity It the university is not to re strict its educational opportunities. No effort must be spared to provide this sum, for without it we must face grave embarrassment m the Immediate fu ture." . mm Boys', Youths' and Little Men's STO RSV1 BOOTS Boys' Tan High Storm Boots, Lace and Strap, $4.00.

General municipal elections were held In this city to-day, and it Is beingr declared throughout Rome to-night that the anti-clericals gained their greatest victory since the fall of the church from temporal pow er. Only municipal offices were filled, but the elections assumed a distinct political character; their importance was not only local, but extended all through Italy. The contest came as a conclusion to the anti-clerical cam paign which had its beginning practic ally with the present pontificate, for the clericals were then allowed, for the first time, to participate In the- polltl-' Pal life of the country. There was a reactionary movement among the antl-clerlcal element; some ; of them swung over from the conser vatives to the socialists and the mu nicipal elections in Rome Were chosen as a battlefield. Defeat being inevit able, the clericals, for the first time since 1870, Vlthdrew from the field, and as a result the antl-clerlcal vic tory was complete and without1 prec edent. Tho vatlcan organs maintain1 that tho abstention1 of the clerical voters was nothing more than, a matter of tactics. DEFITNCT BANK'S PROMISE TO PAY. Portland, Nov. 10.
