Pamonn Shipbuilder* Saved Prom
Failure by BIk Loan.
Through the successful negotiation of
a $5,000,000 loan on terms which in
volve practical reorganization under
new management the William Cramp
& Sobs Ship and Engine Building com
pany of this city, which has built many
of the best ships for the new navy as
well as fighting vessels for ltussia and
Japan, has been saved from the immi
nent danger of having to pass into the
hands of a receiver.
With a plant which, according to a
recent estimate of the Audit company
of New York, is conservatively valued
at $12,500,000, with an international
reputation and with a large share of
the United States government's best
naval contracts awarded it year after
year, the Cramp concern has been in
sore need for several years of an in
crease in its available working capital.
It has outstanding notes to meet
amounting to $2,000,000 or $3,000,000.
Much of the firm's outstanding paper
is held in New York city, and this ac
counts in part for the fact that George
F. Baker, president of the First Na
tional bank of New York, and other
large interests centering in the me
tropolis have been active in floating
the present loan and will doubtless be
influential in directing the future poli
cies of the company.
The United States Steel corporation
is also largely interested in the reor
ganization. The Cramp company is one
of the greatest consumers of its prod
ucts and lias been one of its most ex
tensive customers.
One of the members of the board
said that the bankers who are behind
the new loan will doubtless insist upon
actual as well as nominal control of
the business. They will probably not
only name an operating committee, but
that committee will likely select as
manager a man of combined executive,
financial and technical ability to super
vise the actual work of construction.

ed Western avenue car of the Pittsburg
Railways company ran away on Fed

riage, broke through the safety gates
of the Fort Wayne railroad, derailed a
fast moving freight train and then
went to pieces. Almost all of the forty
five passengers aboard the car were
hurt, though only one fatally.
Wheu the motorman tried to make
the safety stop on the steep grade at
Stockton avenue he found the power
brake was useless and the car beyond'
control. It had about 125 yards to go
before reaching the gates of the rail
road, which were down to let a freight
train pass. The big car gained momen
tum every second and dashed through
the safety gates, struck an empty re
frigerator car in the moving freight
train, turned it over and derailed sev
eral other cars. By this time the trol
ley was a wreck itself, and Its passen

wonder being that there were not many

Marriage is a partnership in a special
sense, in which the man is generally
the bread-winner; but it by no means |
follows that the woman is merely an
ornamen't or a doll arrayed in pretty
dresses or house gowns. In the ideal
home the wife bears her share of the
burdens that must come, it would
seem, to all of us. She keeps the house
more or less elaborately, according to
the circumstances. Tf she has one serv
ant or more, her burdens take other
forms than as if she did her own work.
Tf she has children, there is the respon
sibility of caring for them and training j
them. The mother's influence upon
her children for good or evil is very
great. If there are guests at the home,
the matter of entertainment largely |
devolves upon the wife. Her duties are
multifarious, and when she has done
all. she is expected to be a companion
for her husband, and to be interested
in the things in which he is interested.
All this is just as much the contribu
tion to the ho .:.-: hold' happiness and
comfort as th money the husband
brings home every week. In business |
matters the wife should be treated like
a business partner; she should have an
allowance, and should not ha>ve a falsw.
aentiment about asking for it.

NEW YORK, April 20.? Mrs. Mary
H. Hunt of Boston, representing the ?
Women's Christian Tempera sure union I
at the international antialeofcol con
gress at Bremen, has sent the follow
ing communication regarding the work
af the assembly, which closed its ninth
session yesterday:
"The International antialcohol con
gress that meets biennially on the con
tinent has closed its ninth session. It
Sas been in the matter of attendance
ind well known persons present the
tnost remarkable of any session of the
congress. This body of 1,400 delegates,
uotable in science and in the service
of humanity as university professors
Dr for their hereditary rank, have come
here from fifteen different nations on
two hemispheres.
"Questions of religion and politics
were wisely ruled out of such a varied
assemblage. The subjects discussed
were the teachings of science concern
ing a moderate use of alcohol and the
effect of its use on every phase of hu
man progress. Two schools of thought
were represented? the moderates, who
call themselves the 'temperate school,'
and the total abstainers, who are called
the 'abstinence school.' By common
consent the congress passed no resolu
tions, but the applause for the testi
mony of science and experience on be
half of total abstinence showed the
moderates to be in the minority.
"The statement of Dr. August Forel,
one of the foremost authorities in the
world on brain and nerve diseases, that
neither science nor experience fur
nishes evidence to justify calling alco
hol a food called out prolonged accla
mations. The papers read by notable
members of the congress during these
six days will fill two or three volumes
and soon will be printed for wide dis
In compliment to the United States
Mrs. Hunt presided at Saturday's ses

to the congress will separate.
Saltan Urged to Act.
Italian, German, Russian and Austrian
ambassadors to Turkey have had au
diences of the sultan in which they
urged the imperative necessity of
checking the Albanian disorders. Much
comment has been raised by the sig
nificant fact that the Austrian and
Russian ambassadors saw the sultan
jointly, as this is almost unprecedent
ed. It is reported that the representa
tives of both these countries took a
very serious tone in speaking with the
sultan and that his majesty promised
acquiescence to their demands. The
Albanians at Ipek still detain the sul
tan's commissioners as hostage.
