(Successor to Watertown Republican.) The leader is entered at the PostofSce ai second-class matter. GERMAN MONEY GOES ABROAD People of the Fatherland P.it by a Billion Dollars a Year, and Invest It. Whe the German reichstag a few weeks ago discussed the introduction of American securities in that country there was general surprise at the amount of German capital which woa shown to be invested la foreign paper. But tiie secretary of the interior. Dr. Delbrueck, stated that the people of Germany are saving every year about $1,000,000,000, and that necessarily a large part of this amount must go abroad to find profitable Investment. These savings go Into other avenues besides mere purchase of securities. In 190, according to a writer in Moody’s Magazine, German invest ments in foreign countries, outside of holdings of securities, amounted to about 5.22S millions of marks (2,201.6 millions of dollars). In which the United States and Canada represent ed at least 2,750 millions of marks ($656,800,000). The holdings of foreign securities were estimated at more than sixteen billions of marks or some millions less than four billions of dollars. The real aggregate of all investments, however. Is higher still than these figures ex press, a* not all German participation in commercial or financial enterprises In foreign countries could be taken Into account Scarcely anywhere In the world is a large issue brought out without th# German capitalists being invited to pw-tlclpate. Only a short time ago a large Hungarian loan vrae placed in Germany and oversubscribed for sev eral times, a Turkish bond issue of large amount was willingly taken, and just when the “emigration of German capital," as they used to call It over there, was being discussed in connec tion with the proposed listing of St. Paul shares on the Berlin exchange papers reminded the banks that they bad to be ia readiness for the Chilean loan, soon to be expected. Courses In Agriculture. For some time the matter of af fording instruction In agriculture in the rural schools has been discussed. There is a very pronounced trend to ward the study of scientific farming, as is shown by the number of stu dents In the colleges established for the purpose. There have been a num ber of difficulties In the way, however, of carrying out such a plan. To be on a scope to make it really worth while It would require not only securing competent instructors but some ap paratus and land. An experiment along this line is thus mentioned by The Rochester Post-Express: An ag ricultural course has been added to the curriculum of a Connecticut rural high school and preparations are un der way to make the work thorough and practical. The extension of edu cational work in agriculture, such as nu.ny of the leading colleges in the country are doing successfully, to sec ondary schools is a logical move. Rural high schools in particular can offer opportunities to their students in this way which will be of great value to those who cannot go to uni versities, and which will at the same time stimulate interest to further study of the same sort on the part of those who do enter higher institutions of learning—Schenectady Gazette. Rescued. “Do any fishing this summer?** “Some,” replied the patiently cheer ful man. “Have any luck?” “A little. I managed to keep sev eral greedy monsters from swallow ing my brand-new tackle and running away with it.” Egypt’s Wonderful Pyramids. Scattered about Egypt the only one of the seven wonders of the world which are still standing as sentinels of the very distant past, are the pyra imds, 70 in number, and, as Thomas Fuller describes them, “doting with age. have forgotten the names of their founders." To fully appreciate the wonderful work required in their con struction, a historian has reckoned that it required 100.000 men ten years to build the pyramid of Gizen and to build the great pyramid it required at least 20 years more and consumed a mass of stone weighing not less than 6,800,000 tons.

RAIL STRIKE IS 01 30,000JNV0LVED Whole Country Is Affected by General Walkout. MEN OBEY ORDER OF LEADERS Reports From Many Cities Show Great Industrial War Has Begun —Chicago Authorities Prepare to Handle Emergency. Chicago.—The big railroad strike is under way. It started officially when many employes on the Illinois Cen tral and the Harriman lines refused to resume work when, in response to the orders sent out last week, thou sands of men in shops all over the system laid down their working tools and marched out There was little excitement at the Burnside shops of the Illinois Central when the walkout order went into effect. The men began to leave the works promptly at 10 o’clock, coming out in groups of six or seven. As the men left the works they passed through the crowd gathered along the tracks without stopping to talk to them. Practically all of these men who left the shops went directly to their homes. There was no move ment toward the saloons and they were practically deserted early in the day immediately after the strike. Between 3,000 to 3,500 men left the Burnside shops before 11 a. m. They included machinists, boilermakers, car men, painters, carpenters and pit men in their ranks. Expecting trouble before the day is over, the police of three stations are on the qui vive and prepared to han dle any emergency. The walkout followed the strike or der sent out by J. W. Kfine, president of the International Brotherhood of Blacksmiths and Helpers, calling for “all crafts to strike” ?.nd for “every man to do his duty.” The strike dispatch was sent to the following places, which shows its di mensions: Central, 111.; Memphis, Tenn.; Oakland, Cal.; Birmingham.

Ariz. Roughly estimated, the number of men expected to sever their connec tion, temporarily at least, with the Illinois Central and the Harriman lines, runs to 30,000, and they cover a territory embraced in fifteen states throughout the west and south. The figures in this connection are as fol lows: Machinists 10,000 Boilermakers 4,000 Blacksmiths 3,000 Carmen 11,000 Clerks i,OOO Miscellaneous workers 1,000 Total 30.000 MASONS GIVEN BIG LEGACY.

TAFT EXPLAINS HIS TOUR OF COUNTRY Glad He Visited lowa—Says “Progres sives Were Cordial”—Trip Will Clarify Acts of Administration, Sedalla, Mo. —President Taft swung buck into Missouri to become the guest ot the state fair. He left lowa behind and in discussing his trip through that state the president declared his tion was most cordial and pleasing. “1 am glad I went to lowa,” he said. “I had no fear that my reception would not be cordial. Some had sug gested otherwise, but not lowans. Perhaps the wishes were father tc the thought. At any rate, 1 wish tc testify my gratitude to the governor, to the state officers, to the congress men of lowa and to the senators for their cordial reception of me without regard to the question whether they agreed with me in politics, and l want to say the same thing about the people who turned out. 1 believe they have learned something that 1 had in my heart to tell them and 1 guess it has not done them any harm.” Explaining his western trip, Presi dent Taft said that, while many per sons thought that a president should keep to the White House in Washing ton and while he realized the force ot this argument, it was hard to sit at the seat of government with a strong feeling in your breast of a desire for expression of a character that shall not be denunciatory, that shall not be partisan In form, but merely in a quasijudicial way to state your rea sons for your action. He believed it helped clarify the situation to get out into the country and give voice to his views. ADMITS WIFE’S MURDER. H. E. Webster of Chicago Confesses to Slaying Woman Near Dixon, 111.

New York.- —Unrecognized by a sin gle person in the curious throng that rushed to his aid, Rear Admiral Winfield Scott Schley, United States navy, retired, fell dead in the street here. The death of this notable figure in the naval history of the nation was for the moment that of an unknown man in a strange crowd. The admir al's sudden death is attributed to cere bral hemorrhage. His demise came just a week after the publication of Admiral F. E. Chadwick’s history of the Spanlsh-American war, which com pletely exonerated him for making the famous "loop” which accomplished Cevera’s defeat at Santiago. Schley was apparently in perfect health a short time before he fell upon the street on Fifth avenue and Forty-fourth street and died before a doctor could be summoned. Admiral Schley, the man who smashed the Spanish fleet at Santiago, was one of the leading figures in the American navy for a generation. He was born in Frederick county, Mary land, in 1839. After graduating at An napolis in 1860 and serving during the Civil war in minor capacities, he was commissioned in 1866 as lieu tenant commander. In 1884 he volunteered for and was placed in command of the expedition sent to search the north polar region for Lieutenant (now Rear Admiral) Greely, and his companions, who had been lost from civilization for nearly two years, and the finding of them in a state of exhaustion and about to die constituted one of the drama?ic incidents in arctic exploration.

STATE TAKES NO PART IN INQUIRY GOVERNOR NOTIFES STEPHEN* SON PROBE COMMITTEE THAT NO COUNSEL WILL APPEAR. THINKS HE LACK!) POWER Letter Declares State and Legislature Do Not Desire to Assume Role of Prosecutors in Investigation— Seek Thorough, Impartial inquiry. Madison.— Gov. Francis B. McGov srn has decided chat the state of \\ isconsin would not be represented ay counsel at the Stephenson investi gation in Milwaukee. The governor mailed a letter to Chairman Heyburn at noon and also notified the sena tor by telephone of his decision. Gov. McGovern’s letter contains 500 woids. In it he stated that in teply to Chairman Heyburn's tele gram requesting him to advise the committee as to whether it was the desire of the state to he represented by an attorney, that he found there was serious doubt that he had any power to act in the matter. “Joint resolution No. 58, to which you refer,” said the governor, “con fers no authority upon m.e. It. sim ply requests the United States senate to investigate the matter, means and method by which and through which Isaac Stephenson secured his election to that body, and it recommends that the district attorney of Dane county prosecute persons shown to have committed perjury in the sen atorial inquiry, and suggests that prosecutions be commenced in the other counties of the state for such violations of the corrupt practices statute as the evidence may justify.” The governor states that in the ab sence of any specific authority con ferred by this resolution the only other possible source is chapter 2GB, laws of 1911, which after considera tion leaves him in doubt as to whether he is empowered to employ attorneys at state expense. The invitation to be represented by counsel, says the governor, comes too late to permit of procuring a desirable attorney who could render real service without sufficient time to have gone over the records. Ke quotes a recent interview in which Senator Heyburn was quoted as de claring that the state would have no attorney as it was an “investiga tion, not a trial.” He considers the responsibility squarely up to the committee, not to the state, which desires only an impartial review, not persecution, he says.
