ANOTHER PLAN FOR CURRENCY REFORM IS OUT (Continued on page eight) ONE CAR IS RUN LESS THAN A MILE V JV : 1 - INDIANAPOLIS STREET CAR TIE UP IS SO COMPLETE THAT ONLY ONE CAR IS MOVED AND THAT IS SOON DESERTED BY STRIKE BREAKERS. J. F. FIELDER, Democratic Candidate for Governor ef New Jersey Elected by Over 22,000, Indianapolis, Nov. 5.-The first street car to be moved since the trac tion employes strike was called Fri day night, waB deserted in the streets today after strike breakers had run it less than a mile through a constant hail of bricks. One strike breaker was taken from the car badly hurt. Four other strike breakers and a num ber of patrolmen were less seriously hurt by the downpour of missiles that came from roofs and windows fr.om the time the car left the barns until it was abandoned. Conditions . be came so dangerous for the strike breakers that they lay down on the floor of the car and after a few min utes as a sign of surrender, threw the controller and all their arms into the street They were taken in charge by strikers and policemen and later tak en to jail. ' The car was almost Entirely '.Wreck ed. When the car left the barns no policemen were on it, but it was sur rounded by patrolmen on foot and mounted. The conference which began early in the day between the peace authori ties, still was in session when the rioting took place. Thomas Carlton, the union chauf feur who was shot during a fight at the Louisiana street car barns late Monday, died at the city hospital to day. This makes the fourth death as a result of the strike. ' Washington, D. C, Nov. 5. -Another compromise currency plan, framed to reconcile widely divergent views on the administration currency bill, was put forward today by Senator Reed today in the senate banking commit tee, when it resumed work. Senator Reed proposed that twenty four regional banks be created with stock owned by banks and the banks to elect a majority of directors. His plan would provide that, instead of keepiug seven per cent reserve in its own vaults or in the regional banks and five per cent in the regional bank, each member bank should keep four per cent in its vaults, four in the re gional bank and four in a general fund to be controlled by the federal reserve board in Washington. The plan seemed to meet considerable fa vor. The committee expeciea 10 vuib some today on the abstract proposi tion of creating some sort of a central gold reserve in Washiugton. The pro posal to call a Democratic caucus was making little headway. U. S. VS. HARVESTER CO. IS COMPLETED ATTORNEY GENERAL M'REYNOLDS CON CLUDES HIS ARGUMENT THIS AFTER NOON BY ASKING FOR INTERLOCUTORY DECREE DECLARING COMPANY A MONOPOLY INDICTMENT IS FOUND AGAINST ROSWELL MAN St. Paul, Minn., Nov. 5. Counsel for defense in the government's suit to dissolve the International Harves ter company shortly before noon to day concluded their final arguments before the U. S. district court, and At torney General McReynolds prepared to sum up for the federal side begin ning at. 2 o'clock. John P. Wilson of Chicago, in con cluding for the defense did not de- maud acquittal but asked that the court dismiss the case without preju dice to either side, thus reserving to the government the right to intervene at any time in the future. Attorney General McReynolds con cluded his argument at 3 o'clock this afternoon. He asked the court to en ter an interlocutory decree declaring the Harvester company a monopoly. He then asked that when such decree had been entered, the defendants be given reasonable time to submit a plan of reorganization. Edgar A. Bancroft, of Chicago, gen eral counsel for the Harvester com pany, concluded his address with a review of the trade conditions from Washington, D. C, Nov. ". Tile French ambassador here, M. Jusser and, has received no instructions from his government to take any steps to ward mediation between the T'nited Stales and Mexico, though the embas sy would be the natural channel for such steps. If the French government were to decide to use its good offices at this stage, the usual procedure would be for Ambassador .lusserand to sound Secretary Bryan to learn first whether such overtures would be favorably re ceived. An inflexible determination of Pres ident Wilson to accomplish the retire ment of Huerta has been made known to the powers watl enough to assure that any proposal of mediation doubt less would be based on that under standing and would be shaped to ward composing the situation in a way that Huerta himself .might be dlis- j posed to accept. Some officials fuel that other steps may develop before a tangible move might be made toward mediation. The scout cruiser Chester, at the Philadelphia navy yard was ordered today to prepare to sail for Vera Cruz Immediately. The Chester is not a heavy fighting ship but swift and val uable for dispatch and scout duty. Of lighter draft than the big warships now at Vera Cruz, she will be able to join the smaller craft In shore. The Chester is the highest power wireless ship in the navy. With her apparatus, Washington and Vera Cruz will be in direct touch constantly by medium of the great wireless towers at Arlington. The unofficial view is that the Chester is being sent to Vera Cruz principally as a means of instant and official communication."' Secretary Daniels explain) that the dispatch of fhe Chester was part of his plans to substitute cruisers for tne heavier battleship In Mexican wpters so that the laiter might resume practice and maneuvers. The change, he said, would be made gradually. The Chester, on account of her light draft, is especially adapted to service w ill be available for service in the pro wil lbe available for service in the pro tection of foreigners at Tampico or other Mexican gulf ports, which can not be closely approached by the larg er battleships. The Chester will reach Vera Cruz by next Monday ev ening of Tuesday morning. Loading the Chester. Philadelphia, Pa., Nov. 5. After or ders were received at the navy yard for the Chester to sail the work of loading her was begun.
