the mat gUdtu youth to atuiwt an
j;:uraiiinilon of the world U>"|larg? con*i-i
?r?fiunx ut money, and'ti ?tep Into
the light by :he notoriety caused by the
bonfire he has been building.
Your.?; Davis has been astonishing
I he natives in Galveston, Texas, by
buying bicycles' and hacks outright,
chartering yachts and treating newlymade
friends to champagne suppers
and engaging prise lighters to give exhibitions
for the amusement of his newI
jy foumi friends. While ez>gaged in
these actions he carries a valet and a
soubrette who goea under the easy
pseudonym of "Miss Smith."
When reports came from Galveston
that young Davis was having a howling
time there with $7,000,000 to his credit.
New York's blase youths grew green
with envy. Jn the first place they pronounced
him most unwise to take to
Che .sagebrush and cactus of Texas to
spend his money. In the up-town clubs
h;s escapade was the all-absorbing topic
of conversation. The talk turned to
the old days when Howell Osborne,
Squire Abingdon Baird and Max Lebaudy,
"Little Sugar Bowl," tried to
St: the world on hre.
Mr. Davis, with his valet and "Miss
flmith," reached Galveston by steamer
liorn New York four weeks ago and put
up at the Tremont House. The money
u: once began to sizzle and lor a time
It looked as though there would be a
champagne famihtMn Gatveston. The
"fizz" was sent up to young Davis's
? hv th* can* but the t>Iebe
" ? -?
Ian strain in "M1ss Smith" asserted It- I
pel? when she showed a marked prefer- I
ence for beer drawn from the wood and I
drank it from a hotel pitcher.
Davis then threw the hotel clerk into
pxervotur prostration by presenting
checks for $600 and 12,500. He wanted
only a little pocket money he told the
clerk and said for him to wire to the
Davis bank of Davis, W. Va., or t<j his
tanker in Baltimore and ask If his
credit was good. The reply came back,
?e Galveston reports, that Mr. Davis's
drafts would he honored up to 17,000.000.
Then the hotel clerk recovered and- told
Mm the house tf as his.
This, with the hysterics left out, is
about the way the story came from
Galveston, but Galveston wlH probabbly
be shocked when the golden halo
fird the wreath of greenbacks which it
has woven about young Davis's brow
are ruthlessly removed. Jf he has left J
any creditors in Galveston they are "In I
the soup," to use the words of Fairfax I
" * ,,f tll?l flavin '

Coal and Coke Company, who ripped the
golden lining out of.the story yesterday.
Mr. Landstreet'a offices are at So. 1
Broadway. He remained at his office
after hours yesterday to tell to reporters
what he knew about young Davis. )
and to deny that he was-a son of either i
H^nry G. or Thomas B. Davis. the West i
.Virginia coal barons. They, with Sen- i
fur Stephen B. Elkins. own two or
three counties and several railroads In !
.West Virginia. They practicaHy control
the output of bituminous coal from i
that state. Tho X^ivUvs ?re mill-ion- 1
aires many times*ovcr, and the iittle i
town of Davis, on the West Virginia I
Centrai & Pittsourgh raiivruy, with its ,
one bank and 918 Inhabitants, is the 1
centre of th* coal mining district controlled
by them.
Mr. L.melt;reel evidently took the
whole matter as a good poke yesterday
t? he told what he knew of Davis, lie
"W. H. Davi* is only a distant relative
of Henry G. and Thomas B. Davis.
He is jj years old ami un orphan, his
father having been deiut' for nearly
twenty years. He has been a ward of
the family, and has been in the employ
of the Davis Coal and Coke Company.
The talk Niai he has $7,000,000 to his
credit is all poppycock. I don't think
lie has $700. but he may have |500..
"He has-- been employed a* a clerk or
ft bookkeeper cut at Davis. Besides
being a bright fellow h" Is u hard work,
er. He resigned his position about the
first or August, saying Ue wantea a
rest ir.d was going tarpon fishing down
routh. If I remember rlgftjly, h?? went
about the middle cf August to Gal-veston.
"I suppose he ha* been on a spree and
got to talking about hi* rich relatives
down in Galveston. The story that he
had unlimited credit Is foolish. I am
vke president of the bank at Davis, and
had a dispatch from the cashier this
morning denying that he was giver,
credit up to J7.00O,OM>. He had about
IfiOO on deposit when he went away, but
I suppose he has spent that by this
Jim*.
"if h? owed any money when he left
Galveston his creditors art In the soup.
I had a dispatch from 'him on Thursday
saying that he would leave for New
Ycrk the following day, so I guess he
has finished his spree, and will be along
here broke In a day or twx^?
And so the golden halo wrach the Galvestoniar.s
placed on the brpw of W. R
Davis, of Davis, Tucker county, W. Va.,
WEDLOCK GUIDE.
It li of Interest to Unmarried Women,
nil la Called the ' smilillcal Chart of
Bacheloii and SplniUn of (lie Unlte?l
Stales.
Unci? Sam has Just Issued a. new publication
in tbe interest of unmarried wofnen.
It might be called "The National
Guide to Bachelors; a complete Index
lor old maids and spinsters to the best
places in the union tor setting husbands;
with maps, charts, etc., tells at
a Fiance Just where bachelors ore most
abundant."
But though the publication has no
Buch comprehensive tit:*?. it is Just
what such title would claim to be. The
, government ca:is it "Statistical Chart of
bachelors alui Spinsters of the United
6 tales."
The chart itself Is a map printed in
colors, und shows at a glance Just in
what localities bachelors are thickest,
and In what regions spinsters are most
dense per square mile.
In New York State, for example, there
ere at the present time 576.045 bachelors
of 20 years and upward, while the number
of spinsters in the state Is 456,062.
Between the age* ot L'O and -4 there
err- 254.379 bachelor* and 201.162 maidens.
Between 25 and ^'J there are
135.562 bachelors and 997.145 spinsters.
Between 20 and 34 there are 72,107
bachelors and M.r.t.'. maidens. Between
23 and 44 there ure iX?,447 bachelors and
50,VW maidens. Between 45 and 51
there are 27,Co7 bachelors and 27.28#
spinsters.
Between 53 and 61 there are 12,068
bacht iors and 14.4IS maidens. From 6."

The exact figures are 18.(84 single

The action of to-day's market at the
opening was disappointing to the bulls,
and stocks purchased Saturday on the
favorable bank statement were speedily
let go and commitments made for the
short account. The h/gher.range of
; London prices encourage^ the bulls and
efforts were made to advance prices ro
a parity with the London figures. The
rise in -the foreign market In Union Pacific
showed that the foreigners were
becoming reconciled to the dividend
action. Opening prices here were
somewhat mixed, but the hesitancy was
soon succeeded by a general plunge
downward under the guidance of the
specialties. Stop loss orders were uncovered
in the leaders and the market
for a time wa? at tne mercy of
the dealers, who searched diWgently
for weak spots. Gossip that
disagreement existed between some
of the speculative pools was colored
to some extent by the severity
of the break In spots. Prices for
Tobacco, People's Gas and Brooklyn.
Transit melted away rapidly, but Sugar.
after a dip downward of a point,
encountered supporting orders andruled
above Saturday's close for the remainder
of the day. The railways,
meanwhile, fell sympathetically, but the
losses were confined to fractions, and
after the first rush to seH had abated,
settled down to a level slightly above
the lowest and resisted subsequent ef
ions at ucpri-'^^iuij. iik uuuireos ?aa
accounted for by the publication of numerous
traffic Statements covering: a
wide area of* territory and showing
substantial Increases. The gains la
some of the southern lines was especially
gratifying in view of the sloYr'
movement of cotton and quarantine
regulations in some lections. These
conditions were responsible foj? the
marked decreases reported by the
southwestern group. Arbitrage houses
had purchasing orders, but the action
of the market discouraged any extensive
ventures and only a slight sprinkling
of various stocks was taken. The
elimination of an active speculative interest
from the market, owing to the
rigid observance ef the Hebrew holiday
Yom Kippur. reduced business
considerably, and the raid on Tobacco
also chiHed the outside demand. The
decline in Tobacco was attributed to a
denial by officials of the Drummond
Wat that cnnrtrn had Wn
absorbed by the American Tobacco
Company. The bear* attacked the
slock with considerable confldcnce, and
