Sheldon, the Indjctcd ex president of the Phenix FS Insur ance company of New Yor who loaned $230,000 to officials of th)tate insurance department under former administrations, was one of the wit nesses upon whose testimony the sen ate relied In defeating Governor Hughes' first attempt to oust Otto Kelsey in 1907. In his testimony before the senate judiciary committee Mr. Sheldon praised the services rradered by Isaac Vanderpocl, then deRrtment chief examiner, and Robert l Hunter, Lou Payn's lieutenant, wfw was deputy superintendent for a good many years. The retention of theee men in the department after the Armstrong com mittee disclosures wag the principal ground upon which the governor at tacked Kelsey. In the light of Su perintendent Hotchkiss' report, Mr. Sheldon gave this testimony after he had loaned Vanderpoel $130,000 and Hunter about $60,000 of trfe Phenix's money. Mr. Hunter, who Is now postmaster at Poughkeepsle, says In his rtate ment that he did not borrow the mon ey from the Phenix Insurance Co., but from President Sheldon personal ly. Furthermore, his loan, he declar ed, amounted only to $35,000 and not $60,000, and there Is no loss to the Phenix company, as the superintend ent of insurance says. MANIAC SLAYER KILLED W. S.

Cook was de nounced as an Impostor Sunday night by Dr. Washington Gladden from his pulpit in the First Congregational church at Columbus, O. "ThiB is a case whore flight is con fession," ' he declared. "Dr. Cook's disappearance, followed by the dec laration of his attorney, makes diffi cult the conclusion that he is anything more than a brazen Imposter. His claims to the discovery of the North Pole seem a deliberate attempt to palm off a He on a credulous public for the sake of fame and few gold ducats. He was willing to be acclaimed a hero and accept praise and garlands, know ing In his heart that his only achieve ment was a monumental fraud Doubtless he imagined he never would be found out and could hide his secret. Now that he Is found out he must hide himself from sight of men. To the grave he will bear with him man kind's scorn for a fakir."

NEED NOTBEUEI E IT It's a Matter of Indifference to Wallace E. Til linghasf. Reiterates Hit Story That He Sailed With Two Mechanics From Some Place 40 Milet From Worcester to New York and Then to Boston and Back to Starting Point During a Night Remained Up 46 Minutes Without Power While Machinery Was Being Repaired. Worcester, Mass., Dec. 14. Wallace E. Tillinghast said today that it Is true be sailed in his new flying ma chine from somewhere to New York, around to Boston and back to some where all on a single night; that he does not have to prove It Just now and won't until he gets ready, and that if anybody wants to think the story Is not true It fails to interest him in the least. "I have not asked the public to be lieve It," he said. "I am not offering any stock in the company for sale. I have no axe to grind. One of these days I shall bring the big monoplane out and fly with It; then the public will believe." "The public is pretty Incredulous about the story of your long flight, Mr. Tilllngbjist. They have Just had a Dr. Cook experience, you know." Mr. Tillinghast smiled and said: "Believe me, It Is of no special Inter est to me whether the public believes the story or not." 120 Miles an Hour Easy. Describing the trip In his monoplane of Sept. 8 he said: "We left the place where the monoplane Is kept three of us, the two mechanics and myself after dark. I won't say where the place Is, ether than that it is more than fifty miles from Worcester and 14 miles from a railroad. We headed directly for New York. "It was not difficult to make 120 miles an hour with my machine, which is 72 feet across. It Is not ex actly true that I circled the statue of Liberty in New York harbor. I went within sight of it, I should say about a mile away, and we had trouble with the machinery, and I had an oppor tunity to demonstrate one of the things in which my machine differs from all others. I stopped the motors and for 46 minutes remained in tho air without power while the mechanics made the necessary repairs. "During all that time we sailed about in the air. The machine cannot upset and If It Is stopped high In the air will remain afloat for a much longer time than It did on that occas ion. When the repairs were com pleted we had fallen perhaps 2,000 feet "Then I headed for Boston. I did not pass over the city, but circled It, passing over the harbor at a height of perhaps 1,500 feet. Then I headed for our starting point and arrived there by daylight. Will Appear at Aviation Meet, "Had I had my way nothing would have ever come out about my mono plane until I appeared at some avia tion meet and demonstrated Its power and practicability. Speed of 120 miles an hour may be kept up at long as the power continues to run. The dis tance that can be traversed and the speed at which it may be done Is merely a matter of carrying fuel." CANNON RETIRE? Man Who Said He Would Hat a Vivid Imagination, Said the Speaker. Washington, Dec. 14. Speaker Can non made one of his characteristic comments when newspaper men prod ded him to the point of noticing a newspaper statement that he would retire from the speakership at the close of the present congress.

A man may retire from the house; may retire from the speakership; a man may re sign front the house; a man may re sign from the speakership but I am not crossing a bridge before I come to It.

BANK'S RESPONSIBILITY For Accepting Checks Drawn by a Cor poration Officer and Deposited to Hit Own Account. Now York, Dec. 14. A recent decis ion ot the appellate division of the First department is attracting atten tion among lawyers and the manage ments of large and 3mall financial in stitutions, for it charges these insti tutions with a new responsibility In accepting checks drawn by an officer of a corporation as such officer and deposited by him to his private ac count. The court holds that In such a trans action It Is the duty of the bank re ceiving such a check for deposit to make inquiry as to the regularity of the proceeding, and that a bank ac cepting such checks and paying out money on them to the personal bene fit of the officer who has drawn and deposited them is liable to the corpor ation on whose funds the officer has drawn, if reasonable inquiry would have revealed the unlawfulness of the officer's action. The decision was given in the case of the Havana Central Railroad com pany, respondent, against the Knick erbocker Trust company, appellant. The facts in the case are these: C. W. VanVocrhls as treasurer of the Ha vana Central Railroad company, In 1906, opened an account with the Cen tral Trust company. Between April 21 and June 15 of that year VanVoor- his drew three checks payable to the order of "W. M, Greenwood or C. W. VanVoorhis," signing them "Havana Ceutral Railroad company, C. W. Van Voorhis treasurer." These checks ag gregated more than $59,000. VanVoohis at the time had an Indi vidual account v.'lth the Knickerbocker Trust company and he Indorsed these three checks In blank and deposited them there to be credited to his indi vidual account. The Knickerbocker company collect ed the checks from the Central Trust and placed the proceeds to VanVoor his' credit. VanVoorhis continued to draw checks upon his Individual ac count until July 17, 1906, when he drew out all the money he had there and closed hla account. Plaintiff al leges that Inquiry by the Knickerbock er Trust of the plaintiff would have revealed that VanVoorhis was misap propriating and converting the plain tiff's money to his own use.
