Will Avoid Internal Dissatisfac-

TKKING. July 14.—The four inter
ested legations, American. British,
French and German, presented identi
cal notes to the foreign office request
ing the promulgation of an edict com
pleting the Hankow Zee Cheng rail
way contract. The note sets forth the
intention of the powers concerned.
their mutual agreement and readiness
to proceed with the fulfillment of the
loan arrangement.
The legations are not yet agreed as
to whether they shall press for a com
■ummatlon of their understanding with
thi Chinese government at the pres
ent time, owing to the opposition to
the loan which has been made by the
gentry of Hunan province and the
C! nio«o student bodies.
It is believed the central govern
ment would welcome an appearance of
pressure from the four governments,
as this would place it in a position to
say to the gentry that if the latter
wish to furnish the funds for the con
struction of the railway they must
raise the capital Immediately—an un
dertaking of which the objectors are
, nized to be incapable.

Physician Thinks Method Will
Solve Problem That Has
Baffled Science
Man Helpless Since Birth Walks
Without Using His
new YORK, July 14.—nr. Alfred J.
Fox (if this city believes that he is
curing Conrad Bchaumberg of Infan
tile paralysis, ;i disease which, up to
now, in* regularly baffled physicians.
The doctor has some reason for the
faith that is In him, too, Inasmuch as
Bchaumberg, whose less have been
withered since he was 11 baby, can
now walk short distances without
crutches. Not the le^st amaslng feat
ure of the treatment is that the doctor
is working hypnotic suggestion.
Bchaumberg, who is 27 ye.ars old, has
suffered from paralysis since he was
H baby. Many physicians had pro
nounced his ease incurable. The upper
part of his body is powerful and well
developed, btit his legs arc those Of a
child. Up to six months ago he could
not move them at all. Yesterday when
he appeared for one of his regular
treatments he entered his physician's
office on crutches, but Instead of
■winging himself along; In the old way
lie moved one leg ahead of the other.
He was placed on a bed and thrown
into a hypnotic sleep.
"NOW," sai.l the doctor. "1 will give
you a drink of the most exhilarating
nectar that ever man tasted. It will
make you perfectly happy."
The doctor handed a glass of water
to his patient, who sat up. drank it
with apparent relish and sank back
on the bed.
The physician then suggested to
Bchaumberg that this nectar was re
storing circulation and building up the
tissues of his legs: that his legs were
as much In his control as any other
part of his body. The patient moved
his legs up, down and sidewise on the
bed. This treatment was continued
for a time and then the man was
awakened. He pot up, dressed himself,
v.— Iked about the room without his
crutches and departed, using his
crutches only to help him through the
hall. Dr. Fox believes that in six
months he nil! have his patient walk
ing as well as any one. He says sug
gestions at first had no effect on
Schaumberg and thore was no mus
cular moveWnt at all in his legs. They
were cold, dry and lifeless, and meas
ured about six and a half inches in
circumference. Now the doctor says
they measure ten inches, have color
and perspire.
Protest of Insurance Official Un

ST. LOUIS, July 14.—Papers claimed

Gardner, head of two local Insurance
companies undergoing receivership pro
ceedings were wrested from him yes
terdaj afternoon at the hearing before
Referee H. 8. Caulfield by what at
torneys were pleased to term a

The incident probably is without a
precedent, and while there is no such
thing in legal parlance as a "psycholog
ical replevin." the expression nptly
describes it. While on the stand Gard

Before his attorney was aware of Uis
purpose Gardner reached across the
