That the imperial government must borrow JiT.O.OtiO.Oeo dur'ng the next five years is the sub stance cf an admission made by Sec-r-tiry o? the Treasury Sydow to the appropriations committee of the reich slag today. These borrowings will be necessary even though tile appropri ations for each year are not increased b. fore 1!'12. At the time the statement was made the eommitt-e was discussing the pro posal of Chairman Paasches. nominal liberal, for a definite bill from the government to fix sinking fund re luirements. H. rr Krzbeigi r. socialist, said the members of the committee most be shocked by the government's reckoning that a thousand million marks more must bo borrowed to cov er the annual deficits of the ordinary budgets for another five years, and actually, very much more will proba bly be reou in-d. Continuing. H-rr Erzberger made several allusions to the burdens which this generation is creating for sub sequent ones by the policy of spending far bevond its income.

A shrinkage of half the' volume of today's" stock market from that of yesterday was significant of an abatement of the de mands for slock.

San Francisco, April 30. Win. H. Crocker, president of the Crocker Na tional bank, principal stockholder of the Parkside Realty - company, and Iiouglas S. Watson, secretary of the romiunv. testified today at t!io trial of Rvef. Crocker tojd of speaking to Mayor Sohmita about the trolley franchise desired h;- the company and 01 receiv ing the. mayor's assurance that he would approve it and of subsequently talking about it to Ruef. who also was favorabl" to the project and promised his aid. Crocker said he had no knowledge o fthe company employing Ruef as at torney in the matter of getting a fran chise from the board of supervisors, and he emphatically denied that the former political boss demanded any compensation for his assistance In the matter when he talked to him about It. The witness stated on the contrary that Ruef declared tnat would he ac cept no money for any aid he might be able to render him. Counsel for the defense declined to cross examine Crocker. Watson, under direct examination, went into the details of the organiza tion of the realty company and very reluctantly told of the transaction by which he and Harry B. I'mbser. trans ferred two pieces of property to the company, each receiving a check for $15,000. and other subsequent re transference of this land" to them with out the latter being recorded. Witness testified to having cashed these checks at the Crocker National bank, receiving thirty $1,000 bills which were placed in an envelope and by him delivered to-G. H. Umbsen, brother of Harry B. Umbsen, who with J. E. Green, general manager of the Park Side company, and W. I. Brobeck, the attorney, are jointly ."adicted with Ruef. The proserution exp-tts to prove that this $30,niu was demu tided by Kuef to get theordinance granting the franchise through the board of super visors where It ''ad ben held tin by the committee. And that $15.0 0 of it was actually paid to Ruef by I'mbsen. Heney's questions to witnesses met with a steady fire of objections by counsel for Ruef. During one of the wrangles Attorney Heney exclaimed: "This is not my witness. I want vou to understand that the people have no volunteer witnesses in this case. We are merely producing witnesses to be examined by both sides. Just before Judge Dooling adjourned court until tomorrow. It developed up on the cross examination of Watson by Aih. that the witness had talked with Heney during a ten minute recess of the court. Pressed by Ach. Watson said he had looked over the testimony before the grand jury with the assist ant district attornev, and yiat Heney stated to him that he ad admitted facts before the grand Jury very re luctantly r.nd he appearently was again a very unwilling witness lor the prosecution. Counsel for Ruef was very Insistent on getting the substance of the conversation between the wit ness and prosecuting attorney, and fi nally brought from Watson the ad mission that Heney's talk was "force ful." v The assistant district attorney charged Ach .with attempting to pre judice the testimony of the witness be fore the Jury, j 11 MR.

Washington. April 0. A' mass of data bearing on what he charged to be a combination of the papermakers to raise prices and restrict nroduction, was furnished today by John Norris. representing the American Newspaper Publishers' Association, to the select committee of the house which is con ducting an investigation into the sub ject of the price of newsprint paper in the United States. Norris. with the exception of a short time, was on the .-.tand all day. During the time Norris was excused, General FcliK Anus of the Pnltimore I American testified regarding various contracts with fanermakers. and said that on January 1 last he was forced by the International Paper compan to nay $12 a ton more for paper than he did last year. He related a con- jvirsatlon he had with a representative of the International company, in which ' he was told that if the tariff on print ! pp. per was removed he would be given ; a reduced rate. , j At the close of the day's session Chairman .Marn stated that apparently some of the publishers were not as anxious to attend the hearing as they originally appeared to be, but said he would force their presence to secure their testimony.

The presi- . dent's suggestion looking to legisla tion authorizing the government to make a charge for the use of waters ' of streams for power, purposes was to- j day negatived by the senate commit tee on commerce by a vote of j to 3 against the yopositifin. There was only a bare quorum of the committee present and the result can scarcely be aceptecd as a final an nouncement of the committee's policy on the subject. Among those who took a position an tagonistic to the president was Sena tor Nelson who submitted an elaborate brief in opposition to the president's views. He took the position that such a provision as that desired by the president would deprive states and the riparian land owners of the right to use waters which are now guaranteed by law and concentrate their disposal on the control of the federal govern ment, an Innovation which he contend ed, neither the states nor the riparian owners could afford to permit. The committee also gave some con sideration to Senator Newland's bill for the Improvement of inland water ways and decided to take up the sub ject on Saturday. The bill provides for the creation of an Inland waterways commission and proposes an appropri ation of $50,000,000 a year for the im provement of inland water courses. Originally it was calculated that much of the money would be derived from the sale of water power, but if the action taken by the commerce committee today proves to be decisive that soiree of revenue will be cut off If the Newland bill becomes a law, it will become necessary to find some other means of carrying it into effect. THE DAY'S WORK. The consideration of the sundry civil appropriation bill was resumed in the house today. Mr. Townsend of Mich igan, offered an amendment increasing from $ro,niio to $35ii.00O, the appropria ation for the enforcement by the in terstate commerce commission of that clause of the Hepburn act directing the commission make examinations of accounts of interstate railroads and determine whether the law is being violated, and to make public result of such examination. After a debate lasting four hours, the amendment was adopted. The house disagreed to the senate amendments to the District of Colum bia and the pension appropriation bills and sent those bills to conference. The consideration of the sundry civil serv ice bill will be resumed tomorrow. THE SENATE. Washington, April 30. The senate had under consideration all day the agricultural appropriation bill. Prac tically all the committee amendments were disposed of except those relating to the forest service, which will be taken up tomorrow, and which are un derstood to be likely to provoke de bate. The reading of the bill and the approval of the committee amend ments consumed practically all the' afternoon. The bill was laid aside to be taken up tomorrow for a discus sion of the amendments for the forest service. THE HYDE-BENSON CASE. Washington. April 30.

J, KINGSBURY TEMPE, ARIZ. oiVt Look for More Than You Pay For There is a great deal of common sense in that old saying, and it holds good today. Only yester day it was forcibly demonstrated to one of our cus tomers in a blanket buy. I've always said I knew Indian handicraft, because I know the Indian, and my guarantee to buy back any Navajo, less 10 per cent is always good. This woman bought a blanket for half price said it was a dream in coloring, per fect weave and larger than the one she had bought from me. The man was going out of business and made the price so low that she bought the blanket from him. There is the point I said; would you sell money for less than the market value if it wa.s good? If the Navajo is all you claim for it,- -just test it, and I told her how to do it.and if it stands the test I'll make you a present of the best blanket in the store. She has not claimed the best blanket in the store, but my offer still holds goad. For Reo! or Sale j rb l.'B'ALKE U. S.
