Ten million dollars’ worth of busi

At the close of business in New
York Monday it was found that fully
110,000,000 worth of orders had been
booked, and Tuesday the sales were
almost as large. By 10 o’clock Mon
day nearly three hundred buyers were
waiting to place orders for all sorts
of fall woolen fabrics.
Mr. Woodhull, the New York selling
agent of the trust, said that the con
cern did an annual business of $60.-
000,000, and that almost six months of
its products were bargained for ahead.
Prices of woolens have gone up con
siderably; how much Mr. Woodhull
declined to say. “The raw material
has advanced tremendously,” he said,
“and I do not care to quote figures.
In fact, on some lines I could not do
it if I wanted to. We have had no trou
ble in getting good prices for what
ever we offered.”
In addition to the throng of buyers
who were on the spot, many orders
were received by telegraph and by
mail. The trust will not take orders
for later delivery than July 1.
Bank Cashier Kills Bookkeeper and
Capt. J. W. Murphy, cashier of the
Third National Bank at Columbus.
Ga., killed his chief bookkeeper and
confidential clerk H. T. Shutze, Jan.
16. When the police entered the bank
Mr. Shutze sat bolt upright in his
chair dead. On the floor, a few feet
away, Capt. Murphy lay in a crouch
ing position also dead.
Two shots entered Shutze’s head—
one in the temple and the other in the
top of the head. After firing these
two shots Murphy put the pistol in his
mouth and again pulled the trigger,
the bullet ranging upward through
the brain.
Capt. Murphy was one of the best
known and leading bankers and poll*.,
icians in that state. For several years
he held the position of Assistant State
Treasurer of Georgia. He gave up
this place ten years ago and game to
Columbus, where he organized the
Third National Bank and the Colum
bus Savings Bank. He was a large
shareholder and was made cashier of
both banks. Recently he has been ia
declining health. :« r:
Just before the tragedy President
Jordan had talked with him, trying
to get him to leave for a sanitarium.
It is said Murphy got an idea into his
head that after he was dead and gone
Shutze would take his place as cashier
at the bank.
The two men were devotedly at
tached to each other. Murphy was
fifty years old.
