Governor Mann Tells Why He Will Not Call Meeting of Legislature. Settlng forth ln succinct form the various reasons recently discussed ln opposltion to calllng an extra sesslon of the Leglslature, Oovernor William Hodges Mann yesterday replled to thc letter of Harry St. Geprge Tueker. which contained a requost that the sossion be had for the purpose of legalizing prlmary electlons. Tho re sponso of the Governor sets forth no new matter, but It was regarded by those who read lt as a strong and convincing paper. Thc Governor says ln the first place, that Mr. Tueker was evldently mis taken in assumlng that a largo ma? jority of the Domocrats would regrct his decision not to call an extra ses? slon. He has recelved, he says, a sum total of nine letters on the subject? two ln favor (Mr. Tucker's being one of these), slx agalnst and one from Whlch tlie executivo could not gathcr an opinion. Governor Mann says that the prl? mary ls protected by law, as lt stands, I and, while he has respect for tho Nor I folk judges who have held this law to be unconstitutlonal, ho ls suro that j they were mistaken in thelr judgment. I He refers to the Jackson Wlse case, In which thc Supreme Court upheld tbe validity of tho law by dcclining to grant a wrlt of orror. Would Elect Senator. Contlnulng, tho Oovernor reminds Mr. Tueker that should a special ses? slon be called. it would be its duty to elect a CJnited States Senator. thua dc featlng the declared policy ot' the partj ln respect to the selectlon of Sena? tors. Again, he does not see the polnt ln having a sesslon to pass a prlmary law, when the State already has a law whlch has been declared constltu tlonal hy the highest court, and whicli three successive Legislatures have de clined to change. Flnally, the Governor says that an extra sossion would cost between $C0, 000 and $65,000, which would be un reasonably burdonsomo to thc tax payers of tho State. Referring to tho letters of Messrs, ; Echols and Melntyre, of the Stato Com j mittee, Governor Mann says ho pro BUmos they have. convlncod Mr. Tueker that ho was Incorrcctly lnformed ln \ respect to a recommendatlon by the Second Dlstrlct Investigating commit? tee for a legalized prlmary. For all theso reasons, the Governor says, "j trust that you will agree wlth me th;-t iny decision not to call the Leglsla? ture together ls wlse, and for the best intercsts of the people of this Com monwealth. Certainly thls l* mv ,??. cluslon, and one to whlch i must ad here." i:mi>. 7/.i. int-fit Caae Poatponed, Danvllle, Va., December 'n.?Thi caso of Kmmett W.

Ilelms died, leav? lng a wlll, whleh provlded that lf she left no chlldren her husband wns to have all her property, to do wlth lt as ho saw nt. lf she survived him. tho property was to go to her brother. Samuel Hclms. Tho reason asslgned for thls preferonco for her brother was that her mother was rcmarrlcd to a wealthv cltlzen, and, accordlngly, wlth her daughter bv this second mar? rlage. was well provlded for Crntchfiold of tho .... Samuel Helms had died only flvo yoars after the death of hls sister, leavlng hls daughter, Etta Creer, as hls only heir. She now clalms tho property by reason of thc will. Tho lower court. construlng the papor, said that lt rmant tliat tho husband was to havo tlio proporty "to dlsposc of by will." nnd that as ho dled intestate, the ostate goes to Mrs. Helms's brother and hls heirs. On the other hand, the petltion eontends that tho reason G. M. Helms dld not leave a wlll was because he belleved ho had absolute rlghts over the property, and that it was therefore unnecessary to take care of hls child. TUX.N'EI, XEARS COMI'I.KTIO.V.

The expenses of tho government In the flscal yoar 1912, for whlch thls sesslon of Congress ls asked to appro prlatc, are estlmated at $630,194,013.12. Tho estlmated oxpendltures of tho Panama Canal aro glvon as $56,920, S47.69, making a total of 9687,414, SBO.SL Tho estimates, If carried out, represent net savlngs of about $18, 000,000 ln the executlvc departments ib compared wlth the approprlatlons for the current flscal year. Whlle tho secretary's report esti? mates the total expenses of govern? ment at $687,414,860.81, tho estimates whlch have been transmitted to Con? gress ask for $748,414,861, a dlfference it $61,000,000. Congress ls asked to ippropriate thls extra $61,000,000 to make the slnklng fund law cffoctlve. lt would bo an appropriation to permlt tho treasury to begln applylng 1 per ;ent. a year to the dlscharge of the lational debt. Thc law authori/.lug juch a proceduro has been a deal lot :er for some tlmo, as Congress has levcr approprlatcd any money. Ucccipts for '1912, Secretary Mac Vcagh estimates, wlll be $680,000,000. .vhlch would leavo an ordlnary sur _us of around $50,000,000. lf the treasury should continuo to pay for :he Panama Canal out of the cash Irawer as at present, stich a surplus .could bo turned to a dcflclt of $7, 114,860.81. Secretary MacVoagh, expresses the liope that tho monetary questlon wlll ?ome Into Congress detached from scc :lonal or polltlcal conslderatlons. Pnnlo llrcril. r. "Our system can fnlrly bo called a nanle-breedlng system," hc says, 'wherea3 every other great natlonal banking and currcncy system ls panlc prcvcntlng. As long as wo continuo under our present system wo aro llablc to panlcs and thc devastatlons of panlcs reach Republlcans and Demo? crats and all part3 of the country alike. Panlcs are no longer neces? sary, and no longer respectable. It is for tho government to say whether we shall have panlcs ln the future or not. It ls a moro matter of cholce. "We have no system of reserves; our i.nktng system destroys them. It con ?entrates ln New York what are pre tended to be reserves. and then forces tho New York banks to lend and ihollsh them. Our system. Instead of .ulldlng up a reserve, destroys lt as fast as lt Incllnestto accumulatd." In connectlon wlth hls crltlclsm of the money system, one of Secretary MacVcagh's most Important recom ?nendations concerns future lssues of Panama bonds. of whlch $290,000,000 were authorl-cd by the tarlff act. Thc iccretary renews thc recommendatlons he made last year for legislation to tax thc new bonds at l 1-2 per cent., lf tscd by natlonal banks for circulation md lntimates, as was announced ln iews dlspatches, a few days ago, that t mlght be more preferable to Issue be new securities for investment pur? poses only at a rate of 3 per cent. As a check agalnst the use of the londs as the basls for a further in latlon of the natlonal bank currcncy io suggests thnt a circulation tax of >von 2 per cent. would h-vo tho effect )f making them unprofitablc for banks Lo use f"r such a purpose and at the lame time would make them attrap lvo to Investors wlthout Injurlng the ! per cent. bo; ds, of whlch more than ">700,000,000 are outstandlng. Another neans of accomplishing the same end. hc secretary suggests, would be for .ongress to authorlze an Issue of $50, 100.000 or $100,000,000 of the bonds at ! por cent., wlthout tho circulation jrlvilege. If there ls no prospect of immcdlate :hange In the monetary system the iccretary thlnks the Amerlcan na lonal banking system should bo de .loped to perform an Internatlonal 'unctlon.

The contrlbutory sys em of retlrlng allowances the secre? tary recommends as tho only ono vhlch has a chance of adoptlon and as jest for tho men and women of the lorvlce. Hc urges thelr frlends to ?oncentrate upon that movement. A :omplcto state of efflclency ln the gov irnmeiit departments, hc says, ls im loaslblo wlthout somo way of retlrlng :lcrks ln a Ju.t. and humane manner.

As dstant appralsers of customs should ie detached from polltics for tho efflcl :ncy of tho servlce ho says. The secre ary pays a high tributo to tho men )f the life saving servlce, and urges lomc form of retlrement for them. As tho cconomios of adminlstratlon, .vhlch have haan offected ln the Troas iry Department, are rcviewed, the secretary pauses to tako notico of i statement made by a Unlted Stafes senator, that tho business cf the gov >rnment could be conducted with a saving of $300,000,000 a year. Secretary MacYeagh says: "The pop ilar impresslon as to tho oxtent of )osslblc economtes In.tho admlnlstra lon of the executlvc departments ls ilngularly exaggerated, and thls mls :onccptlon ls very harmful. "When the public expects that thc rcKvernmcnt can save J300.0.0.0UU a 'ear, such small, laborlous savlngs as an be made- ln the executlvc depart ncnt3 hardly seem worth whlle. And t ls astonlshlnp that under such clr ?umstanees Intcrest in these compara Ively small savlngs can be malntaln 'd. These savlngs can only be dfsap >ointlng to the public who have such lgures as $300,000,000 in mlnd; and hey cannot recelvc any popular credit, 'or they can only seem to be small rifllngs wlth great things. * And yet hey can only be produced by laborlous, lalnstaklng and perslstent methods ind devotion. "When lt ls the fact that the cntlre irdinary expendltures of thc govcrn nent last year were less than $660. '00,000, and when a great part of these txpendltures ls not reduclblo at all, as, or examplo, thc Interest on thc debt, ind the penslons, one can readlly see hat there probably is not very "much nore than $300,000,000 gross left on vhlch to save $300,000,000. Now, to ffect a saving of $300,000,000, when he whole expenditure amenable to .ny saving ls $300,000,000, Is, of course. iot easy. I appeal to thc sense of iroportion of Congress and the Amerl an people; for lt ls very Important o have these improssions corrected n order that there may bc some en ouragement given to those men scat ercd through tho departments who rant to bring about all the lmprove tient posslble."
