Campaign Against Sin Now Being
Conducted by Ministers and
Business Men Attracts
Great Attention
The church federation noonday meet-
Ings continue to be largely attended and
much religious interest is manifested.
Many of the ministers and other speak
ers In this campaign havo experienced
their first work as public speakers on
the streets. At first there was more of
a timidity 1 • appearing before the ir
regular crowds which gathered to hear
them than In the regular forms of church
worsh'.p in their own churches.
This timidity is disappearing with many
of the speakers and they express them
•elves a» enjoying the work in the open
air, with the realization that their serv
ices are being the means of doing much
At certain stations the speakers have
had to contend with an element trying
to excite argument bearing outside of the
methods prescribed and being carried
out by the evauge.lsis. These crowds
would HkS- to introduce sensational fea
tures and arguments intc ibe meetings,
but the speakers have invariably turned
aside all arguments with the one idea of
preaching- the precepts of the gospel
which has done much in at ieast decreas
ing if not altogether stopping the argu
'i.njd, straight, simple preaching on the
one principal subject has bee*n the method
adopted and carried out In this campaign.
And the excellent music has added much
in drawing crowds.
Blind Singers Entertain
Two aeetlnci were hold yesterday with
b-.it f»w change* from Mm previous an
nouncements. Rev. E. P. Kyland was
the speaker at Mercantile place, with
Rev Mr. Kmmett as leader. Prof. Stout

By Associated Pren.
NEW YORK, Jan. —Unable to meet

bank, the conduct of which as its presi
dent had brought about v his arraign
ment in tho United States circuit court

One year ago Heinze bought a con
trolling Interest from the Goulds, with
whom he pledged his holdings as se
curity for his promise to pay for them
in full within one year. This loan of
$1,200,000 was due today to Edwin
Gould and William Nelson Cromwell,
who was a member of the Gould party
in the bank before the Mercantile was
added to tl.j Helnze-Sdorse-Thomas
chain of 'rjancial houses.
Dp to the last moment allowed him
Heinze rtruggled to meet his obliga
tions so as * > retain his banking house.
His failure v as chronicled in the fol
lowing- statement, issued by Mr. Crom
well after an afternoon's conference of
the parties concerned:
Gould Gets Bank
"The Helnze stock in the Mercantile
National bank Las been acquired by
Mr. Gould in a satisfactory arrange
ment. Mr. Helnze was given every
possible chance to pay for the stock,
but because of his inability to do bo
In the time agreed upon, we have beon
forced to take it over."
Later Mr. Cromwell added that the
Gould interests would assume their
proper place in the bank board at the
meeting on January 14. This Implies,
of course, that the so-called Heinze
directors will then retire.
This morning Helnze, now under bail
consequent upon an indictment by the
federal grand Jury on a charge of over
certifying checks of his brother's brok
erage firm involving $460, jO, was ar
raigns? before Judge Chatfleld. A plea
of not guilty was entered and permis
sion was had to alter or withdraw it,
or to make any other desired motions
later. An adjournment of the case was
ordered until January 20, when the
final plea will be made. The bail of
{50,000 was continued.
It was reported that other men
equally as r eminent as Heinze in Wail
street operations were to be called be
fore the federal authorities to plead to
similar indictments. Who they are or
when their arrests are to be expected
could not be learned at the United
States district attorney's office.
It is known the grand Jury Is not

king conditions exposed by tho
recent financial flurry. United States
District Attorney Stimson, who was
seen after Ile.inze's arraignment, sal.J:
"It would be improper for me to re
veal the evidence I have lest I give
my case away, but I cah, say that the
Investigation is not yet over."

that he would not leave the city until

Soon afterward, accompanied by his
counsel, Edward Lauterbach, Helnze
Joined Ed' In Gould and William Nel
son Croi iwell in the conference which
ended in his returning to them' the
bank shares for which he was unable
to pay. It is said that the transaction
was not concluded until every means
by which Heinze might have held His
Interest had been exhausted.
After the collapse of the United Cop
per pool and the subsequent clearing
house investigation of the Mercantile
bank, when Heinze resigned the presi
dency, and the directors likewise re
signed, the copper magnate declared
that he ■could still hold his stock. The
bank, however, had been adversely af
fected by the trouble, and it was gen
erally believed that a way would be
found again to bring it under the Gould
control. This opportunity cams today.
A new directorate, practically install
ing the former management, is now
expected to restore the institution to
Its old time restore the Institution the
old time standing. For years the
bank had been under the control of the
Gould Interests and then Heinze, who
was branching out as a banker, and
with associates, was striving to secure
direction of a number of local banks,
acquired considerable holdings In the
He succeeded when he obtained about
8000 shares of' the stock from Edwin
Gould and 1000 from IW. N. Cromwell.
It was reported at the time that the
purchase price was I 1825. ■ Heinze paid

Concerning a report that Heinze and
Worse had a misunderstanding over tho
ill-fated bull campaign in United Cop
per, which was about to culminate In
a law suit, John C. Tomllnaon, personal
counsel to Heinze. said tonight. "No
papers have been drawn. It is true
that there has been a general discu.i
sion ->t Mr. Heinze's affairs, but no
definite action in any direction lias
been decided on. The relations of Mr.
Heinze and Mr. Morse have been most
Discussing today's developments In
formally tonight, Mr. Cromwell said:
"Now that Mr. Hetnze no longer has
anything to do with the institution in
an official capacity, we intend to be
gin to reconstruct the bank. It is now
our intention to proceed to regain the
ground it lost. It had always been i
good old conservative institution, wiih
an excellent business, and we believe
it will recover within a short time un
der the Interests who now have con
trol. There can be no more talk about
the possible liquidation of the bank."
As to what effect the change might
have on the possibility of law suits in
volving the bank Mr. Cromwell was
not prepared to express an opinion.
"These matters," lie said, "along with
the matter of Heinze's balance with
the bank will have to be taken care of
in the future."

Two Are Thrown Together in Com
mittee Work—ln Presence of
Entire House Exchange
By Asaoclated Prea».
WASHINGTON, Jan. B.—ln the presence
of the entire house Representative Wil
liams of Mississippi and Representative
DeArmond of Missouri, whose physical
encounter on the floor of the house Just
before the Christmas adjournment at
tracted general attention, today engaged
in an exchange of amenities which was
generally accepted as a public announce
ment of their respective Intentions not to
permit thulr personal differences to lnt«r
fere with the courteous discharge of their
public t-utles.
The Incident occurred in connection with
an effort by Mr. Dalzell o: the committee
on rules to get the house to agree to
a rule giving right of way to the bill
authorizing the codification and amend
ment of the penal laws of the United
States and limiting general debate for
four hours.
Several Democratic members express**
the opinion that the rule was a scheme
to sidetrack other legislation. Mr. Dalzell,
however, refuted this.
Minority Leader Williams came to the
rescue, and favored the rule, saying that
congress ought to get rid of the report,
as it embodied the result of the labor of
the commission for ten years.
Matter Non.Partisan
He said the matter was wholly non
partisan in every way. To the surprise
of every one, Mr. Williams then devoted
his tinre to De Artnond of Missouri, who
politely bowed his acknowledgements.
Tin two men constitute the minority of
thu committed on rules and are necessar
ily thrown together in the committee's
work and other members of the house
expressed aatiafaction over their evident
Intention to preserve amenities In their

entire session against other and more Im

Williams wa» vigorously (supported by
Sherley of Kentucky, Watkins of Louis

mittee on revision of the laws. The rule
was passed by an overwhelming major
ity, despite efforts by Mr. DeArmond and
several adherents to secure tho "Yeas"
and "Nays," and the house at once pro
ceeded to consideration of the bill.
