SAY PENNA ROAD
OF NJ. STOCK
Director Says it Wishes to be on
a Level With the New York
That the Pennsylvania railroad has
a direct interest in not less than a
fourth of the outstanding stock of the
New Haven railroad, is the reported
statement of an influential man in that
company, that the Penna seeks the ap
pointment of two directors to the New
Haven's board instead of one and will
get Ihe desired representation and that
the recent acquisition of New Haven
stock was made to put the Pennsylva
nia on a level as to stock holdings and
representation with the New York
Central, were some of the sidelights
thrown on this story by a well inform
ed railroad man today.
One of the directors of the New Ha
ven company is authority for the state
ment that the Pennsylvania's sole idea
in buying up this stock was to put the
company on a par with the Central.
These two lines cover the New Haven
and the business it can throw their
way. The fact that it is operated in
the big manufacturing section of the
country, makes the New Haven's bus
iness important to the other lines. The
Central and the American express,
owned by the Central, with the Mutual
Life, have been the three largest hold
ers of New Haven stock. The Central
of course dominated the holdings of
the express company and therefore has
now three representatives on the New
Haven board. The three Central di
rectors who are in the New Haven
directorate include William W. Rocke
feller and J. Pierpont Morgan, who,
in financial circles is said to regard
the New Haven Company as his pet
The report that T. DeWitt Cuyler
a director of the Pennsylvania, would
be one of the two men to represent
that company on the New Haven's
board, was well received in railroad
circles today. Mr. Cuyler is well
known in university circles in this
city, being a graduate of Yale with
the class of 1874, and he scarcely ever
missed any of the university athletic
events held in this city and the boat
race at New London.
Mr. Cuyler would appear for the
financial end of the Pennsylvania and
it is the belief here that the other
man would likely be one of the opera
ing officials and by an officer of the
New Haven, who sits close to the
throne, the name of Samuel Rea and
Charles E. Pough, both vice presi
dents of the Pennsylvania, were men
While the books of the New Ha
ven company show the Pennsylvania
to hold only about $6,000,000 of the
company's stock; it is generally be
lieyed by the railroad people that the
Pennsylvania through other concerns
has a very much larger ownership of
New Haven securities. While the Cen
tral holds, only so many share In its
own name, it has voting control of
the American Express shares and in
the same way the Penna controls stock
to the amount stated through other
There are many reasons wy the
Pennsylvania should seek further in
sight in the New Haven's affairs. One
of the most important of -these that
the two lines will have physicftl con
nection when the New York connect
ing railway is completed, but that the
Penna now or in the near future will
dominate or control the New Haven
is ridiculed by President Mellea.

PERILS THAT TRAVEL
IN PAPER CURRENCY
Prof. Hildrich Finds an Average
of 142,000 Bacteria on Soi!d
Dollar Bills Though Some
Have Lost Their Virulence
"Paper money, as an avenue by
which disease can be transmitted has
been an object of suspicion for some
time," says The Medical Record. "In
deed, this particular form of exchange
has been shown more or less eonclu
sively, to be under favoring conditions
an actual menace to the health of the
."Hilditeh of the Sheffield laboratory
of bacteriology and hygiene, Yale uni
versity and Park of the Research lab
oratory of the board of health of New
York, have demonstrated that dirty
paper money is "similar to the paper
and rags and capable of carrying liv
ing tubercle and diptheria bacilli for
some days or longer. "
"Hilditch, however, does not regard
the danger as very great. He ob
tained twenty-four bills, the very dir
tiest he was able to procure, and sub
jected them to a minute examination,
the outcome being that he: found the
average number of bacteria in each of
twenty-one bills to be 142,000. Fur
ther, it was established by subsequent
experiments that these organisms were
not in possession of their full viru
lence. The publication of these re
sults was not to create a feeling of
confidence in the comparative harm
lessness of the dirtiest paper money,
or, at least, to seem ta demonstrate
that as sources for spreading infection
such was not greatly to be feared.
"In a recent issue of The Popular
Science Monthly, A. Cressy Morrison
writes to point out that the menace
of paper money must not be wholly
judged from the virulence or the na
ture of the germs discovered. He per
tinently draws attention to the fact
that the infection of drinking water
with the germs of typhoid fever should
not estimated from the number of
the bacilli typhosi found, for if that
were the case water would be seldom
condemned, and those bacilli are sel
"In brief, Morrison contends and it
appears contends with justice, that it
is not so much the question of viru
lence or even of the nature of the
organisms found on paper money, but
that experiments have established that
money is a medium of bacterial com
munciation from one indivdiual to
another. In order, therefore, to elu
cidate the matter, paper money known
to have been exposed to contamina
tion by highly infectious organisms
should be examined by scientific ex
perts. It has been ascertained that
money can be infected by handling;
it has also been shown that the germs
of diptheria and tuberculosis may live
on infected bills for several days.
Morrison says "It seems but a step,
then, to the final demonstration of the
actual transmission of these and sim
ilar diseases by money in circulation,
and to the prevention of such spread
of disease by the proper measure to
eradicate such possibilities.'
'There is little doubt that disease
is spread in ways that we know not,
men in these times of advanced re
search. If paper money does spread
disease, though but to an extremely
small extent this is reason sufficient
to insist upon the more rapid with
drawal from circulation of soiled bills
and the issuing of new and clean
"The results of more minute and ex
haustive investigations into the ques
tion of infected paper money as a
means of spreading disease should be
interesting and valuable."

"The New Hampshire Club of

social organization that was success
fully started last night at an enthuis-
astic meeting of natives of New
Hampshire held at the home of Dr.
C. H. Sprague, 168 West Liberty
street, when a tentative organization
was formed and a committee was ap
pointed to report a constitution and
by-laws at a meeting to be held at
the same place Thursday, June 9.
Dr. C. H. Sprague was chosen
chairman and Mrs. Sprague, secre
tary. The committee appointed to

participating in the discussion was to
the effect that the club will be very
democratic, the same as the people
of that state are, that the member
ship will not be limited to those ac
tually born there but will include
those married to natives of the state
and also those who have lived there
a number of years and that probably
two big meetings a year will be held,
one in the summer at some shore re
sort chiefly for the purpose of pro
moting .sociability among the mem
bers, and one in the winter to be ad
dressed by prominent New Hamp
shire men or women. Sociability
among people who still cherish a
great love for the state of their birth
will be the keynote of the organiza

Demand Upon the Resources of
Organization Growing Faster
Than its Means
The members of the Visiting Nurse
Association are well pleased with the
mass meeting held at the City Hall a
few weeks ago, because of the work
which the members are doing for the
sick poor of the city was brought for
cibly to the public mind. The mem
bers of the association desire to ex
press their appreciation through the
Farmer to Mayor Buckingham, who
gave them the use of the City Hall
chamber for the meeting, and desire
also to thank those who responded to
their appeals for aid.
As the association becomes better
known to the poorer "people of the city,
that worthy class is already beginning
to appreciate the efforts in their be
half. More cases of sickness are call
ed each day to the attention of the
association. These added calls must
be attended to,, thereby increasing the
expenditures of the association. So
far the proceeds have grown with the
work accomplished, but the members
know and realize that much more erood
can be done if the treasury' is in a
better way. The salary of a visiting
nurse, medicines, care of the sick and
needy, food and clothing are a source
of drain on the finances.
Especially at this time of the year
is there more sickness prevail ent, and
more so in this city than in any other
city of the State. The winter months
are noted for their many cases of
coughs and colds, but it is the spring
days when weather conditions are so
changeable that serious sicknesses ue
most common. Each week the visit
ing nurse, assisted by nurses who oc
casionally give their spare time to the
association, report new cases that need
attention. At the most the visiting
nurse does what she can in each case
she is called in to attend, but it is al
most an impossibility to give each case
the time that it requires. It has been
figured out that the visiting nurse
makes about eight or nine visits a day,
about an hour to each visit. It is for
this reason that enough ground cannot
be covered by one nurse that the as
sociation is especialy desirous of add
ing another nurse. Another nurse is
an impossibility unless the funds of
the association are in such a way to
Miss Schoots of the Henry Street
Settlement in New York, who spoke at
the mass meeting, told of the various
ways in which the nurses are main
tained by the people of the metropolis;
that a number of the charitable socie
ties pay the salary of a nurse; then
again clubs give musicals and thea
tricals, in this wy maintaining a
nurse for a year or less. The Metro
politan Life Insurance Co. in New
York pays the salaries of seven nurses
who are under the direction of the Vis
iting Nurses' Association. It is not
impossible for a number of our social
or charitable organizations in this way,
or even some public spirited citizen,
to provide for a nurse for even a few
months of the year at least. It is a
