Rudolph Blankenburg, Mayor of Phil adelphia at the presentation of a Wiss nei Grand Piano to be awarded as a prize during the coming Saengerfest in Philadelphia. The presentation took place Jan. 24, at 12 o'clock at the Philadelphia City Hall, after the dedication luncheon to Mr. Wlssner and the . representa tives of the Saengerfest: "Mr. Mayor The Saengerfest of the North Eastern Saengerbund which took place twelve years ago in Brook lyn was an event of supreme influ ence in the development of German song In America. His Majes'y, the valuable prise, which became known! f ""IX" ' J.?,NT. Sf, E. E. Ford has been for several years a summer resident of New Ca naan, having a suite of rooms at E. H. Sammis' fashionable boarding house. He made himself known there as a minister. In fact, he is one, hav ing graduated from the Princeton Theological Seminary, and has been ordained by the Congregational church. He attended that church in New Canaan, and on one occasion lectured at a Band of Hope meeting. Be known in a confidential way that he had made much money in Wall street. A reporter hunted Mr. Ford up at his Wall street office and gained ln rromation which he gave to the New Tork World. The World had already heard that a broker who did business for the E. S. Dean Syndicate and had been expelled from -the Consolidated Stock Exchange, was back In Wall street after an absence of several years. The World was looking for this man, it developed that he and E. E. Ford were one and the same. E. H. Sammis believes in Ford's in tegrity. Mr. Sammis dictated the fol lowing statement to a reporter: "You can say for me that Dr. Ford is all right as far as I know. Tou can find plenty of others in town who will say the same thing. I think he is aiming to do good." On one of his letter neaas Fora in the singing world as the Kaiser- preis, and since then it has been the greatest ambition of the best singing societies of America to win this price less trophy. "The Brooklyn Singers wished to express their heartfelt thanks to the illustrious donor, and unto Mr. Saen ger, Mr. Arthur Claassen and myself they bestowed the honor to go to Germany as their Delegates and to pay their respects to His Majesty the Emperor. "We were received In a most cor dial manner, and were delighted to find that the Emperor takes as great an Interest for the German song in America as In the Father'and. In his address to the Delegates the Em- v.- 4 , 4 ' n. - - fx'--. 'AS it L. OTTO TVISSNER peror repeated the remark of Baron von Hollebenfl then representatives of the Emperor in Washington, regard ing the splendid achievement of the German American Singers, and refer red to the great gift made by one of the Delegates, thus alluding to the Wlssner Grand Piano, which I had presented to the Saeingerfest Com mittee. "Ever fcince then my love for Ger man song and the people wno so the education of ministers, of all de nominations Catholics as well as Protestant. He seemed to think it would be an easy matter to unite all these. He also wanted to buy a news paper in every town and village In the world and publish them all under the name of "The World Bible League." One one of his letter heads Ford used New Canan as the location of one of the World Bible League Cor poration offices and gave 45-3, which is Mr. Sammis' telephone number, as the 'phone number of the World Bible League corporation. The "World's- story was as f ol lows: . Rev. Erastus E. Ford, the "preach er-financier, has evolved a brand new "philanthropic" scheme for the "advancement of the welfare of hu manity" in connection with the World's Bible League Corporation, which he controls. Mr. Ford Is well remembered In Wall street as the inventor of the marvelous Market Register and Sys tem. Tais was a contributing cause of his expulsion from the Consolidat ed Stock Exchange, also as the broker for and intimate associate of James B. Kellogg, .whose activities in con nection with the E. S. Dean & Co., swindle landed him in Sing Sing. Also, as the man who told a legisla tive committee at Albany that with $100, a pencil and a pad he could at least double his capital each day by playing with the stock market. One of the features of this new "philanthropy" is the stipulation that Mr. Ford is to receive for his own personal use the first $300,000 which pours into the coffers of his personal ly conducted Bible League. The plan whereby he is so greatly to benefit the human race has to do with the mar keting of an unlimited isue of fifty year 6 per cent gold bonds of the Lesgue. Another feature of the scheme Is a provision in the bonds by which the league assumes only a "moral obliga tion" fn- "Uher the principal or inter est. Another provision in effect tech nically makes the corporation non-asset holding. For the '"convenience of the bond purchasing public" the hand somely engraved and emoossed certi fciates have been issued in denomina tions of from one to one million dol lars, making them accessible to every pocketbook. After much urging, Mr. Ford produced one. "Now. here is my plan, said Mr. Ford, "and it has taken me five years to work it out and I hope The World will not publish it until I have put it through. The scheme is simply this: We issue benevolent bonds maturing of No. 6 Wall is a different man from the Ford of 730 St Nicholas avenue. I talked market here. I talk Bible there." Later Mr. Ford said he played the market "like a steamboat from both ends and gave away his winnings." "Rev. Dr. 'Daniel S. Gregory is treasurer of the Bible League of North America. He was not in his office in the Bible House when a World reporter called, but Randolph R Bean, the' assistant treasurer, was. He told how Dr. Gregory came to be named as one bf the Incorporators. "Mr.. Ford whom we knew .as as sistant pastor of the Church of the Strangers, came to- Dr. Gregory with his scheme and offered to take over our publication on his bonding plan," said Mr. Bean. "It looked good to us and Dr. Gregory allowed his name to be used. After two failures to get Incorporated at Albany, Mr. Ford got his league Incorporated in Con necticut. . Then we heard nothing further from him. Dr. Gregory wrote and got no answer. Iwrote and re ceived no reply. "When Mr. Hyatt resigned as pres ident, Dr. Gregory sent a letter to Mr. Ford declining to serve further and forbidding him to make use of his name. Dr. Gregory will be greatly upset to be mentioned In this matter, as he has nothing whatever to do with it. Naturaly we supposed the scheme all right or we wouldn't have gone into it." Ford's market register was a won derful machine to make anybody's fortune by telling him how to specu late in stocks. All you had to do was to press a button labelled with the name of the stock you wished to speculate in. There would come a soft, purring sound, a . need'e would bob unexpectedly pointing to "buy" or "sell." Tou would press another button, another click followed and this magic machine showed you exact ly what the price of the stock should be. "I spent $16,000 In developing that machine," said Mr. Ford. "Tou know the wheels were so small and intri cate that they were very expensive. I had closed a deal to sell the Eng lish rights to Attorney Davis, counsel for the London and Counties Bank of London for $5,000,000. The deal was all finished execept. signing the papers, when Davis dropped dead suddenly on his way home and it was all off." THE SMITE-MUMMY C. Wash Goods.

Then let the Contest Board, all unknown to the manufac turers, "drop in" on these dealers and, select one, two or three stock cars such as are for sale to the public on the dealers salesroom floors. Then the Contest Board, without the manufacturer or dealer touching the machines, would have the machines shipped to the race course and enter ed in the stock car race that would settle the world's championship -with- -out one doubt. By this means there would be abso- : lutely no question as to the honesty : of the cars being truly stock machine. : A contest of this kind would leave no room for doubt as to the nature of the cars competing. "This would be just one way," Dick son declares, "of allowing the public to appreciate the sincerity of the man- -ufacturer who enters stock car con tests, and of guaranteeing the buye? that the car that wins such a con test has the same quality as the one he buys. If the public really knew what is good for it. it would demand stock events only. It is from a con test of machines of exact quality and build as the public buys that the pur chasers gain a genuine benefit from contests. "The public does not buy special racing creations. The public buys stock cars, therefore the merits or stock cars shown in races is the pub lic's unimpeachable guide as to qual ity. I believe that the race as I have outlined, would be just the means of placing stock events in their rightful position of prestige over all other kinds of motor car contests."- - TOO BIG FOR TOXELS A gigantic electric generator of un usual capacity, built for the Ford Mo tor Company's factory at Detroit, Mich., has proved too large to pass through the railroad tunnels between Ampere, N. J., and that city. The machine was built at the Crocker Wheeler Company's plant at Ampere, but it was found necessary to wind the armature at Detroit. For the last ten years it has been necessary for ail large manufacturers of electrical machinery to keep diagrams of all the railroad tunnels in tne united States so that the parts of the big genera tors would not toe built too large for shipment. This particular monster has a rat ing of 2,500 kilowats, or approximate ly 3,300 electrical horse-power, at a voltage of 250. This mesns that it generates a current of 10.000 amperes, as the current is equal to the number of watts divided by the voltage. It is to be driven by a direct connected gas engine, running at So revolutions a minute. Very few generators as large as this are built at the present: time. Generators of equal capacity are -sometimes used for street railway service, but their voltage is usually about 600 so that the current generate ed is only 4,000 amperes. SUGGESTS NKW KIND OF RACE.
