SOli NOTE On Insurance Matters Which Has Raised Another Dem ocratic Tempest. &3 BURGLARS MAKE FAILURE IN COURTHOUSE SAFES California Mountains Are Blocked by Snow and Sleet Breaking Down Trees. Wu.shnKt: Member of both houses of cungreiw are exercised over a letter attributed to President Vifsident Roosevelt, in which th plan to have mate legislature enact laws limiting the salaries of life in surance officials is opposed. So marked is the interest in the matter that a democratic member of the house from a middle western state will offer a resolution calling on the president to acknowledge the letter officially, and to send all the corres pondence involved to congress. Copies which have reached some of the legislators indicate that the letter was written to Thomas F. Tirnkc. superintendent of Insurance of the District of Columbia. The text of the letter, which Mr. Drake declared to be genuine, is as follows: "The White House. Washington, Nov. 29. 1906. My Dear Mr. Drake: Will you read the Inclosed mem'orar dum? I assume that you will not in dorse any proposal that the legisla tures shall fix the salaries to be paid officials cf insurance companies. X hhould deem such action of o,ucntion able validity in law. and unquestion ably grossly improper whether the law would or would not permit it. 1 can hardly suppose that there is a serious endeavor to take such action. Sincerely yours, "THEODORK HOOSKVKt.T." Committee Fuvoreil Limit. The Insurance commissioners of the states met some months ago an J appointed a committee of fifteen to draft reformatory insurance bills, to be pressed before various legisla tures. Among the propositions adopted by the committee of fifteen was one limiting salaries to $50,0n0 a year. The president's letter was sent out by Mr. Drake, with the president's approval, to each of the committee of fifteen, and was accompanied by a letter from Mr. Drake.

Mo.: The biennial report of the state board of chavl ties ami corrections contains an in teresting chapter on the almshouses of the state. These contain a total population of 2.950. There are 1,61 males and 1.335 females. The feeble minded in these Institutions number 448; epileptics, 180; si'ck or crippled. 103; paralytic, 162. Twenty-seven of these Institutions are conducted under the lease system, and forty- nine are managed by the county courts through superintendents oC their selection. At thirty of th almshouses cells are provided for th' insane and at fifty-nine the Inmates are not required to work. Twenty four county clerks failed to report as to their county poor. al Correspondence. New York, Jan. 14. Interest has developed to a high pitch In the lo cal political situation because of th; strong probability of William K. Hearst securing a recount of the bui lots cast In the mayorallty campaign f 1905. With the strong stand taken by Governor Hughes in favor of a re count bill In the legislature, and wlrn with the assistance of Attorney ("Jen eral Jackson in quo warranto pro feedings, there Is bound to be a set tlement at last of the long mooted question. Mayor McClellan and ho) friends are almost on the verge of ii panic over the situation because, with the margin of less than 3,M' votes to spare, almost anything can happen. It must be remembered that In the few ballot boxes alread, opened in other proceedings many ballots were found which were coun ted for McClellan. although they were voted for Hearst. This latest attack on MeClellan's title to office, coupled with the many reasons there are for believing that It will succeed, has put McClellan en tirely on the defensive In his fight with Charles F. Murphy over the Tammany Hall leadership. Wh'.ie the Murphy men are jubllent there are some misgtvli gs, however. Inter mingled with their Jubilation. be cause if the Hearst people actually prove the existence of gross fraud J in the mayoralty election, there will be many Tammany men to suffer. Whatever was done at that ele tlon was done by Tammany Hall. which then was heart and soul for McClellan. The latter turned his back on the organization as soon .is the election was over. An OiilsMikpn Ik-xlnc. Itev . Dr. Madison C. Peters has at tracted widespread attention throutr'i his resignation as pastor of the Epi phany Haptist church and his leasing of the Majestic theatre in which be ginning last Sunday night, he bega I a series of people's meetings undei most favorable conditions. "I entered upon this new work." said Dr. Peters, "because I long for freedom which no man can enjoy In a pulpit where a few men pay hi) salary and dictate what he shall sh The pulpit In America, with here and there an exception. Is a coward's ca tie. I say emphatically that there never will be In any pulpit In Amer ica a free expression of honest opln Ion as long as the consciences of the preachers are held In bondage and thralldom by paid salaries." The situation at which Dr. Peteis revolted Is typified by the attitude f the churches toward the liquor ques tion, especially on the subject of lo cal option, as clergymen have been compelled to preach for local option regardless of Its possibilities for evil. Dr. Peters believes the clcrgymr:! should view with a broad mind the regulation of the personal habits of Individuals Instead of inviting revolt on the part of churchgoers and re sulting empty pewg. MAIL CARRIER'S DEVOTIOX TO DUTY UNDER DANGER. San Bernardino, Cal.: With great limbs from tall pines falling all it bout him.

ENTERTAIN HIS ONGRE- V " y v - SrS? I Exchange for Curb Brokers. If the New York Produce Ex change succeeds In Its plan to ere ate a department for the trade of un listed securities, the New York curb market soon will be a thing of the past. Leading curb brokers are strongV in favor of the idea, " as it entails comforts the like of which the cu:b brokers never have known. The onlv thing 11 .t could kill the success of the proposition now would be a Ann stand taken by the New York Stock Exchange. For more than a decade the curb murket has met in the mid dle of Brand street and conducted its business during the regular trading hours of each day regardless of the elements or the season of the year. Winter or summer, rain or shine. In the face of bitting hi lizards or tor rid sun, the curb brokers have con tinued to do business in stockse which for one reason or another nev er have been regularly listed on the Exchange. In loine cases these stocks are "cats and dogs;" in othe.-B they ore securities in companies th onlcials or which have declined io give to the Stock Exchange the de tailed information demanded by th ' latter. Standard Oil is one of these and under the move proposed by th Produce Exchange all these securi ties would be taken over to that board. Bights to subscribe and mining stocks will be included In the list for trade under present plans, but only after rigid Investigations In each In dividual case. The lower part of th.' Produce Exchange floor, which is the most spacious in the country, will be given over to the unlisted security trade, which would be h?ld entirely distinct from the produce markets. Some speculations are going on as to what the New York Stock Ex change will do. because In the past It has used the big stick policy when ever any suggestions of a small ex change for curb brokers has been made. Apparently the Produce Ex change Is not consulting the Stock Exchange at all, and If its action has no other effect It lias put tip the prire of membership tenfold. City GiiishmI by Traction Company. That New York City Is almost helpless In the grasp of local traction compan.." is shown by ihe fact mat $24,000.0110 worth of taxes, owing py these companies, stands today on the books of the city. This shows an ac cumulation of twenty years and tells for the first time the full story of the Indebtedness of the street railway companies. For years the companies have done everything in 'their power to dodge responsibility for paying car line tax es and everything else possible in the taxation line. City employes, appar ently for years, made no effort to keep a record of the sums, much less to take a stand to force payment of the claims. Now. however, many suits have been Instituted and others soon will be started to compel the settlement of at least a part of this vast Indebt ness, which is owned by the elevated and surface railways In .ll the hor oughs.

American artists residing abroad particularly In Paris, are materially affected by a test case now before th' board of the United States general appraisers. Bor years many Ameri can students living in Paris have helped to support themselves by making pen-and-ink sketches of the latest fashions for admission to il lustrated periodicals in this country Recently the treasury department decided to assess ttie drawing undt the provision in the Dingley tariff law for "pen-and-ink drawings.' w ith duty at the rate of fifteen pi r cent. The Curtis Publishing company. Philadelphia, proprietor of The La dies' Home Journal, has filed a pro test with the board of appraisers which will have the effect of bring ing the matter into the federal courts. It is Ihe contention that the sketche are properly entitled to free ent'y under the exemption schedule of the tariff law. The law provides thai "works of art. the production of American artists residing temporal- ily abroad." are not taxable. I am talking from the stateroom." After a short business talk tho financier rang off and spoke li'J thoughts aloud.

Alii for MacDowell. Every American patron of music should be Interested to aid the funtf for thesupport of Edward MacDo well, America's foremost composer, who. at the age of forty-five, is stricken mentally so that he now is but a child. MacDowell's work was the pride of America's music lovers and now, at a lime when th composer Is unable to do a thing for himself, he must have the most careful attention. Tt is a sad thing that the American public has not rallied more quickly his aid. The committee in charge of tic; MacDowell fund of the Mendlosohi Glee Club contains such names as (rover Cleveland.
