Congressman Fowler's Address The Address. "From the establishment of the first sub-treasury, sixty years ago, the practice of hoarding or locking up money has been a disturbing factor «in1 curse to business. Now, jump ing over all the past, and taking up the situation precisely as it presents itself today, what shall we do go •on as before, or like intelligent men treat this government's business just as you would treat it were it your own, making only such distinctions as a due regard for the people's inter ests, from a national point of view, demands. "The fiscal operations of our gov ernment are such that, the coming year, we may have a surplus of fifty or possibly seventy-five millions. In deed. we may again have the same ex cess of revenue we had from 1SS8 to 1892, when we lowered our bonded debt from $1,021,000,000 to $5S5,000, 000, or a decrease of $435,000,000. What, shall bethecouduet of the treas ury? Should it not be such as in no way to interfere with the commercial interests? "If we should repeat this record, we could pay off $435,000,000 of our debt, ami leave it at $490,000,000. or $25, 000.000 less than the amount now de posited to secure our bank-notes, which aggregate $517,00,000. If our excess should not be applied to the reduction of our debt, it would have to be deposited from time to time in our national banks, and the banking capital of the country would be re duced by the cost of the bonds required to secure such deposits. "Our banking capital is now in debted more than $150,000,000 by this ancient and insane procedure and, though the government has control of this money, it is paying two per cent upon it for the interest paid on the bonds held by the government goes to the banks that have put up the bonds to secure the deposits. "The available cash balance, July 1, 1906, three months ago, was $175,000, 000. The available cash balance Octo ber 5, 1906, was $222,000,000. In other words, at the very season of the year when there was a constantly growing need of money, and panic prices for its use, the government has been engaged iu withdrawing it from the channels of trade at the rate of $15,000,000 every month, or $47,000, 000 for the months of July, August and September. "It may be asked whether the secre tary of the treasury has not re-de posited the money so withdrawn? Yes but only on condition that the banks would purchase and put up specified bonds amounting to more than $50, 000.000 so that the banking capital of the country has been depleted dur ing these three months by that amount. As a. result, credits have been dis placed, business seriously disturbed, and no good whatever has come to counterbalance the loss and havoc. "Why should not the government do just what you are doing deposit its money with national banks and get two per cent on its daily balances? "On September 4, 1906, the national banks had on deposit with national banks over $830,000,000, or seven times as much as the government had and were undoubtedly getting two per cent interest upon it. The state banks and bankers had on deposit with the national banks more than $381,000,000, and were undoubtedly getting^ wo per cent interest upon it. The trust com panies and savings banks had on de posit with the national banks upwards of $346,00,000, and were undoubtedly getting their two per cent interest. In other words, the banking institutions of the country had on deposit with our national banks more than $1,500,000, 000, or more than ten times as much as the government had and yet the government by its practices would have us believe that although it has the power of supervising and knowing all about the management of every na tional bank in the country, it cannot safely do what probably every bank ing institution in the country is do ing without any special information at all. "Let the government deposit its re ceipts from day to day precisely as our municipalities and great business interests do. If it had pursued this policy from 1879 down to the present time, and received, as it had the right to do, two per cent interest upon its balances, it would have received $50, 000,000 in interest, and not have lost a single dollar. A bill has been fav orably reported by the Banking and Currency committee and is now pend ing before the house of representatives, providing for the daily current deposit of all public moneys. It will depend upon your active co-operation whether the government shall do its business as the bankers of the twentieth cen tury do theirs, or whether it shall con tinue to do it as General Jackson, in spired' by passion, in his supreme ignorance began to do it nearly a century ago. "During the present crop-moving period, there will be taken from the Abstract of Speech Delivered Today Before American Banker's Association at St. Louis. The following is an extract of the address of Congressman Fowler de livered today before the American Rankers' association at St. Louis: "THIS DATE IN HISTORY." OCT. 17. 'V 1705—Ninon de L'Enclos, a notorious Parisian beauty of the 17th centurv, died. 1765—Henri Jacques Guilaume Clarke, one of Napoleon's ablest gen erals, born. Died Oct. 28, 1818. 1777—General Gates defeated Gen eral Burgoyne at Saratoga. 1797—Bonaparte and Austrian Em peror concluded treaty of Campo Formio. 1806—Battle of Halle. 1849—Frederick Francois Chopin, composer, died. Born March 1, 1809. 1853—Duchess of Edinburgh born. 1871—President Grant suspended writ of habeas corpus in nine countics of South Carolina. 1897—Charles A. Dana, New Yol-k editor, died. Born Aug. 8, 1819. 1899—Rev. Dr. W. H. P. Faunce in stalled as president of Brown Univer sity. 1902—Lord Kitchener appointed to command the British forces in India. The money value of the Vatican, the pope's palace in Rome, and Its treas ures is estimated at $150,000,000. bank vaults of the country approxi mately $200,000,000 of United States notes, gold certificates, silver certifi cates and other forms of lawful or reserve money, and sent into those parts of the country where checks are not used for the purposes to which this money will be put. "For the sake of being definite and comprehending fully the effect of this movement of reserve money from the hanks of the country, let us assume that, when the movement began the banks had loans outstanding up to the limit provided by law. What effect would this movement have upon the credits of the country? "The actuary of the United States treasury prepared for me a table showing that the credits which would grow out of deposits of $100,000, made respectively in a esntral reserve citi bank. it reserve city bank and in a country bank, would reach an aggre gate of $1,906,000. That is. the credit standing upon $300,000, deposited as stated, would be six and one-third times that amount. While the total credits of the reserve city banks would be exactly $1,000,000. or five times the $200,000 deposited with them. It will be reasonable, therefore, to assume that, if $200,000,000 of money in actual use as reserves is taken out of the bank vaults and scattered over the wheat, cotton, corn and other districts to assist in moving the crops, credits to the extent of .-u least five times $200,000,000, or $1,000,000,000. are dis tributed and displaced. Yith the treas ury concurrently withdrawing $50. 000,000, or more, from the channels of trade, and our credits contracting to an extent approximately $1,000,000,000, does anyone wonder that money runs up to 125 per cent, when the straining and breaking contraction is on? "Need anyone wonder, when the flood of money returns to the cen ters. th? wheat, the cotton, the corn, the cattle and the hogs, the products of about one-half of our entire popu lation. having been marketed, and there is no further immediate need of these tools of commerce in the coun try districts, that money, so-called, but nothing but credit based upon these reserves, can be had for one per cent? Need anyone wonder that sp?eulation runs riot, and that we have an abnormal money condition all the year around? Now too much: now too little and never anything like a nat ural relation between capital and bus iness—all this because we do not rec ognize one simple truth about credit, and put it into operation. What is this simple truth? It is this that there is not the slightest difference tn essence between the true bank note and a bank check." In conclusion. Congressman Fowler said: "What we want, and this is the truth of the whole matter, is this: Place our note redemption so located in the United States that no banker will be out of the use of his money for more than twenty-four hours and the cost of transmission paid by the government. Then, bank note credits v-'ill be sent home when their mission is filled as directly and swiftly as now are checks and drafts for the bankers will want the proceeds of the note credits precisely as they want the proceeds of their checks and rafts. "But will someone innocently in quire: 'Will these note credits be safe?' "No one has ever lost anything by holding Canadian bank notes during the last fifty years. You, Ameri can bankers, are just as clever as your Canadian brothers. If you can't work out something yourselves, you can adopt their plan. "The Banking and Currency commit tee has favorably reported a currency bill to the house of representatives, providing for an issue of credit bank notes equal to 50 per cent of the capi tal of the national banks and the method of guarantee makes such an issue safe beyond peradventure. Our present bank notes are a first lien upon the assets of the banks issuing them. With this law remaining in force, taking the entire history of the national banking system down to 1901, the average tax upon the out standing note issue after elim inating all the government bonds de posited to secure circulation from our calculation, would have been eight one-thousandths of one per cent for two hundred and fifty years. "Again, assuming that the notes had not been a first lien and that the en tire note issue of all the banks fail ing during that same period had been paid out of the guaranty fund, it would have taken twenty-two one-, hundredths of one per cent, or about one-fifth of one per cent per annum upon the outstanding notes. In other words, eleven per cent would last over fifty years. Two per cent, or one year's tax, would last ten years. "The banks should pay the govern ment the same for these note credits that thay are usually paying on large balances, viz., two per cent per annum. They should also pay into the treas ury the same redemption fund of five per cent that is now required for the redemption of our bond-secured circu lation." "THIS IS MY 47TII BIRTHDAY." Lord Selborne. & lord Selborne (William Waldgrave Palmer), who is the high commissioner ,in South Africa, was born Oct. 17, 859. He is recognized in Great Brit ain as a man of great abilities and ex cellent common sense. He is the son of an eminent judge, who was the first Earl of Selborne, received an excel lent education, and at once entered upon a political career after leaving the University college at Oxford. He married a daughter of the late premier, Lord Salisbury, and it is said that .Lady Selborne has exerted the greatest influence on his career. For four .years prior to his appointment as Jiigh commissioner in South Africa, ,Lord Selborne performed the duties pf first lord of the admiralty and it is generally admitted that he left the British navy more efficient than it ever had been before.

Andrevia His Compan ion, Says, "Americans do not Understand". Mandated Prrsa to Tkr Bvnlig Tltnn. New York, Oct. 17.—Thinly dis guised under the name of the Russian author's adopted son as "Mr. and Mrs. Pieshkoff," Maxim Gorky and his companion. Mme. Andreiva. sailed for I home on the Prinzess Irene. The I same pair had a few months ago left the Hotels Bellaire and Lafayette and other hostelries in a most unpleasant I frame of mind. I They have been looking over the sore spots and slums in this country with a view of comparing "benighted and money-mad America" with "des potic Russia." If Gorky and his com panion felt any prejudice against this country, they have conquered it, or, at least, are able to conceal it. Since they came here they have been stung not only by the disappro val of the "queer Americans" of their companionship in view or the fact that the novelist has in Russia a wife and two children, but they also apparent ly felt the sting of poverty as well. If they feel that the overflowing hos pitality they expected was turned into gall they seemed to have forgotten it. Although Gcrky and his friends had given it out that he was traveling through this country to study it in the light of a problem and lesson in so ciology, as a matter of fact Gorky and Mme. Andreiva spent a large part of the summer in the Adirondacks in either self-chosen or more probably enforced poverty Gorky was a member of a sort of a socialist colony at Hurricane, in Es sex county. The community was pre sided over by a Staten island woman. Gorky took his trick with the rest, at the I room, mop and scrubbing brush. Apparently Mme. Andreiva was not eligible for membership in the col ony. for she hired out as a waitress, at a big hotel. St. Rubert's Inn, at quite a distance from the socialist community, at a humble wage, smil ingly receiving such tips as the gen erous offered. The once noted actress sacrificed fame and kopeks for a "principle" and to be near the famous author. Guests at the hotel could not help observing that the trim little woman, with her handsome face and hair brushed back smoothly, was beneath her former sta tion in life. She would alight from a carriage with the grace of a grand dame and the accomplished actress she was. Her identity was finally discovered through the frequent circumstances that she and Gorky took long walks together. They appeared very happy. They would stop at a farm house and call for milk during their strolls. They were a part of the rugged nature of the mountains and forests in which they reveled. On their calm, unmoved faces was no sign of discontent. "I don't care to talk of American or Americans," said Gorkey when ap proached. "My views on the people in this country will be found in my forthcoming book to be entitled 'Mother.'" Mme. Andreive was dressed in a dark tailor made gown that fitted her perfectly. "I have no feeling against Ameri cans," she said, "in spite of their treat ment of me. Americans are simply incapable of understanding. We were delighted with our trip." School Girl Saw Attempt. The following account of the throw ing of the bomb at the Spanish royal wedding is translated verbatim from a description given by a little girl of thirteen, who was at No. 88 Calle Mayor. The narrative is the more thril ling from the simplicity of the diction. It will be noted that no grown person was on the balcony with the three lit tle girls. Had an adult been as close to the assassin as they were, suspi cions could hardly fail to have been aroused, and the murderous attempt might have been frustrated. I was the only girl in our college .who had an invitation to see the pro cession from such a good position as the Calle Mayor, and I thought I was very lucky to get it. It was a friend of my mother's who took me, and she told me she was to have a balcony in a flat which a friend of hers had rent ed for the day. When we got to the Calle Mayor, although it. was only 7 a. ni., we thought we should have to stay in the street, for there was such a crowd we felt as if we could never push through. But one after another made a little way for us, and then a nice, kind soldier encouraged us and helped us, and at last we got to the idoor of No. 88. It was barricaded with planks of wood, to prevent people get ting into the house, and only had a little space left open at the bottom. So we had to go down on our hands and knees to get under the planks. If we had stayed there outside we should have been killed. The soldier who was so nice to us was killed. The bomb fell quite close to him, and that was where we had made up our minds to stand, if he had not helped uts to get in. We had to go to the top of the house, and the flat was divided into four little rooms, each with its own bal cony. The lady I was with went Into the end one that you see In the pic tures, with her grown up friends, and •I went into the next with two other girls, both smaller than myself. There was no one else In the room with us. •When we first went in one of the ladies in the end room was holding a bunch of flowers to throw when the king came, but her husband took it away from her, because it was forbid den to throw flowers. Wasn't it lucky for her, or else they would have taken her to prison on account of throwing her flowers. We were very much pleased with our place, for there was room for all three of us on the balcony, and as we had •to wait a great many hours of course •we looked at everything, Down below there was a dear little baby boy, about four years old, beautifully dressed— such a darling! We never got tired of looking at him, and his mother was pretty, too. On another balcony, ex actly below ours, there were some gentlemen. They were very lively, and before the procession came one climbed up and sat with his legs dang ling over—at least, so it seemed to us, .but we didn't notice him very much then, for we were all getting very ex cited and impatient to see the queen. The next balcony to ours on the top floor had only one gentleman in it. We noticed him a great deal. First we thought it was so extremely odd of him to keep the whole balcony to himself, when the one beyond was full of la dies, and he could so easily have la- THE EVENING TIMES, GKAND FORKS, N. B. vited some of them to come to his room. Then, as we looked at him, ex pecting to see some of his friends ar rive, we all noticed that he held his hands in a very funny way, always be low the top of the balcony, and gen erally behind his back. But. as the balcony was decorated, we could not see his hands, even when he had them in front of him. So we decided that he must have got a bunch of flowers to throw, tn spite of the prohibition, and that he was afraid of having them seen. We had to wait a very long time, for we got there at seven and the procession didn't come till eleven or later, so we had plenty of time to look about, and as we thought he was a very odd person, we kept on noticing him. The ladies in the other balcony must have seen him, too, of course, but •they were all talking a great deal, so perhaps that was why he did not at tract their attention so much as ours. iWe were laughing at him to our selves about hiding his flowers so ,carefully and looking so funny with his hands always out of sight. At last the procession began to come by. and of course we forgot all about the man In the next balcony. We didn't .know who most of the people In the carriages were, but we saw the Prince ind Princess of Wales and the Queen Mother, and the mother of the bride, though we could hardly look at them, we were all thinking so much of the queen. Then the shouting got louder and louder, and everybody was so gay and happy, and we were staring hard at the king and queen, when it seemed to nie something dark fell just alongside of me. and there was an awful noise, and all at once everything was hidden iu clouds. I thought to myself. "It is the end of the world. God waited for the king to come, and this is the end of the world." I don't know how long it was before guessed what had really happened. (Everything seemed quite silent for a •long time. It was so strange to hear a great silence suddenly in the midst of all that shouting. Then I heard a mother cry out. "Mi hijo, mi hi jo ("My sou, my son!") and other cries of pain. And then the king called out very loud. I think he called first, "Bring up the empty carriage," (coche lie respetot, but 1 am not sure now. for I also heard him say equally loud,. "We are not hurt." and I cannot re member which he said first, I only re member how clear and brave Ms voice sounded. Then the smoke cleared away and I saw the king helping the queen out of the carriage. She looked rather .white and frightened, not very, and •was not crying or fainting: she was holding her dress up all in a heap, and two gentlemen were helping her to hold it, the train was so very long. .1 saw some spots of blood on It. I was told afterward that the blood was the blood of one of the grooms who .was killed close to the steps of the •carriage. I saw him lying dead by the steps in a heap. I just looked down as long as I could, for I did so want to £ee the new queen, but I saw such •dreadful sights that I could not stop at the balcony. I came inside and 1 was deadly sick. One of the little •girls with me fainted, and the, other had her face covered with blood from the broken glass in our windows We were all very frightened, but In a minute or two we felt a little better, and we went back to the balcony again .to look at the queen. The king was .giving orders to everybody, it seemed to me. I never saw any one so brave as he was. When the queen stepped down from the carriage he took her hand and presented her to the people, and I think It was then that he said. "We are not hurt." I can't remember that part clearly. Nobody came Into our room for* some time. 1 think we were forgotten. Some of the ladles fainted, and my friend was taken ill from the fright. I shall never forget what dreadful sights we saw when we looked out again. Nobody noticed at first that the assassin had disappeared from his bal' cony. He must have slipped down stairs and scrambled out under the planks at the street door, and there were civil guards inside the door, so •if. seems strange he was not caught. But I think the civil guards had run out to help, and I don't think any one knew just at first exactly where the .bomb fell from, Perhaps they did not even guess it was thrown from a win dow till they saw all the poor people dead and wounded in the balconies of •our house. The pretty baby boy had his face all torn away, and that young man I told you of who had climbed up on the rails of his balcony just under ours, was hanging there quite dead, head downward. And the soldier who help ed us to get through the crowd was dead. 1 forgot to tell you that as soon as the king called out, "We are not hurt," there was such a roar of shouting that .the cries and groans of those injured .were drowned. They shouted, "Viva los Reyes!" "Cowards! Cowards! Kill the assassins!" and "Long live the brave king!" and altogether made a tremendous noise. Close to the car riage I saw some strange soldiers, and those were the English lancers, some body said afterward, but I didn't think about anything but the queen at first. The king seemed to be trying to keep •the crowd quiet—he was giving orders. Everybody crowded round, for they .were afraid the queen was hurt. They .were quickly covering the faces of the •dead with pocket handkerchiefs when •she got out of the carriage. I saw •the coachman fall off the box. He was •not wounded, but I was told afterward .that he died from the shock. It was •a dreadful sight—all those beautiful .horses streaming with blood, and the .poor grooms wounded or killed. I wish some one besides us had no ticed the funny way the assassin kept his hands behind him, but of course, •we never thought of there being any thing wrong. We would have liked to throw flowers ourselves, and that was all we supposed he wanted to do. —Cornhill Magazine. i'MQVE LIST. Prominent Omalia Woman Sues Hus band for Pin Money.

MS Tl RETURNING TO COM. AFTERJORTY YEARS Pittsburg Company Shuts Off Supply From East Liverpool (0.) Factories. POTTERIES TO BE IDLE Action Is but Temporary, Com pany Says, but Manufactur ers Are Skeptical. Aaaeelateil Preaa to The Kvealag Tiatr*. Philadelphia. Penn., Oct. 16.—For the first time in 39 years the potteries of the great Ohio valley earthenware and china district, centering at Bast Liv erpool and Wellsville. O.. will operate today without the use of natural gas. The lieculiar co-incidence in the situ ation lies in the 'fact that the same city of Kast Liverpool holds the rec ord of having been the first commun ity in the United States to utilize the natural product for manufacturing purposes—the initial use having been in 18ti7—20 years before it was util ized elsewhere for other than lighting. The announcement that all gas would be shut off from the factories of the East Liverpool district begin ning with today was made yesterday morning by the Manufacturers Light. & Heat company of Pittsburg, which operates throughout Western Pennsyl vania and Bastern Ohio. The gas, the company states, is shut off temporar ily,. since ft is hoped to get a new supply into the region by the middle of Deeember. Until then, the an nouncement states, all manufacturers must revert to the use of coal. The manufacturing interests of that sec tion view the promises of renewal or supply for the factories with doubt, and believe natural gas will never again be used in the two cities of East Liverpool and Wellsville for other than domestic purposes. I.««* of Thousand's to Potters. The Manufacturers Light & Heat company absorbed the companies operating in the Ohio valley field—the Ft. Pitt, Tri-State and Ohio valley companies—four years ago. Since then they have been in exclusive pos session of what was formerly com petitive territory. For ten years the supply has been failing in the Bast Liverpool and Wellsville district and yesterday the company announced that the fluid would be entirely shut off from all factories, beginning with to day. The manufacturers are making pre parations for the substituting of coal as fuel under the kilns for the burn ing of the ware. It will take weeks, however, to perfect the system of burning coal. The output of the Bast Liverpool potteries is valued at $14, 000,000 a year, and the loss from the Idleness and damage to product in cidental to the change will run into the hundreds of thousands. More than half the capacity of the district will be idle today on account of the stoppage of the fuel supply. L. B. Beatty of Pittsburg, assistant secretary of the company, said last night that the company had new pipe lines building into the territory con necting with a West Virginia supply estimated at 30,000,000 cubic feet a day, which the concern had acquired a few weeks ago by purchase. Other Territory Not Affected. "We expected to get these lines com pleted by November 1," said Mr. Beatty, "but we fear now that the mid dle of December will be nearer the date. A sudden shortage throughout the district compelled today's action. Our other territory, including the Beaver valley cities and the country tributary to Steubenville. will not be affected, for the reason that the pot teries are the most prodigal users of gas we have." Bast Liverpool was lighted and heat ed by natural gas long before 1877, in which year a famous gusher was struck in the town that turned the at tention of the whole country to gas as fuel. Fifteen years ago, however, the gas wells of that section gave out and the companies were compelled to pipe fuel from the Pennsylvania and West Virginia fields. A telegram from Bast Liverpool last night stated that many of the manu facturers were preparing to equip their plants permanently for the use of coal. This new equipment will mean the expenditure of thousands. A "TENDERFOOT IX 'FKISCO. He Found That "Double Orders" Were the Restaurant Rule. When the Basterner spends money in San9 Francisco nowadays he would better be on the alert. Otherwise, his cash and himself may be separated all too soon, for himself at least. Should he go to a restaurant he would better ask the price of the dishes he orders, or he may find they are much more costly than the bill of fare would seem to indicate. It is not because the managements of restaurants prac tice extortion.. Not that. It is for the reason that unless such precau tions are taken unexpected misunder standings may arise which will prove especially expensive. A New Yorker ordered a meal in a "shack" restaurant in Market street not long ago and after the waiter left to communicate his wishes to the kitchen the visitor reckoned the bill to be 75 cents. There was a sirloin steak at 35 cents (meat costs half aL much in San Francisco as in New York,) a Spanish omelet at 30 cents, and a cup of coffee at 10 cents. He congratulated himself on the reason able prices, for the restaurant, though housed in a rough red wood building, was furnished as elegantly as before the fire, when there were plate glass mirrors panelling the walls and a mosaic floor under foot. The meal was served and the New Yorker asked for his bill. "One dollar and a half," said the waiter, laying the check on the table. "One dollar and a half?" exclaimed the easterner tenderfoot. "You mean 75 cents. See here! You have charged me double for everything." "That's all right," said the waiter, "but everything you had was a dou ble order." "A double order?" shouted the At lantic coaster. "I didn't ask for dou ble orders." "We always serve them unless you specify to the contrary," replied the waiter, calmly. And It was all In vain that the Atlantic coast man remon strated, and he paid the bill.
