The Times has received a communica tion from the school children who are promoting the movement to raise funds among the boys and girls of America to build a battleship In memory of the lost Maine, to be called 'The American Boy." They appeal to tbelr peers and elders as follows: Cincinnati, O, Nov. 16, 1S53. 4To the American People: "Briefly stated, the purpose of 'The American Boy' movement is to raise a fund by x oluntary contributions from the bojs and girls of the Vnlted States to build a mighty battleship to be called The American Boy." This great ship is Intended to Illustrate the patriotism of the youth of America. At the same time Its Inception originating in consequence of the destruction of the .Maine. It will also be a gigantic and impressive monument to the dead sailors of the destroved ves sel. It will Impress upon the minds of the bojs and girls, whose pennies go to ward Its construction, more than an thlng else possibly could, that this Is thtlr countrj and their Government, and that it Is their duty and their privilege when they become of age to participate In the administration of Its affairs. Every child who contributes his or her ralte, or raises his or her voice In behalf of the movement, will learn to more readllv understand the rights of citizenship and Its obligations. "tthai titled nobility can look upon the advent of The American Boj bat tleship and say that the oung people of Amerl' a are fit subjects for a monarch ? Vhat despotic government will dare to cncroT - t pnn the free soil of the West ern Hemisphere when it beholds In the rising (.eneratlon of this countrj' such patriotism and readiness to defend Its libert!" The effect of such a demon stration of love of country would have an enol, Irg effect upon the jouth of other lands, where the people long for the rights we enjoy scarcely less Imp n ant than that upon our -own joung people. Love of freedom, when incul cated In the people here so early In lire, must surely spread rapidly throughout the civ lllzed world and result In complete triumph of democratic principles ov er the trannical doctrines of kings and empe rors. "Every man assigned to duty upon the mighty Iron warrior, from captain down, will feel an added responsibility, an added trust. Imposed upon him by the people of this country. No greater Inspiration for the crew of such a vessel could be found than the thought of the thousands of voulhful hearts beating In anxious cx pectuncj for the result of Its work. No greater Inspiration for young Americans, could be found than the thought that the' great ship of Iron, upon which the fate of an encounter might be depending, was the result of their efforts and dev otlon to national Interests. "Wc appeal to the bojs and girls of America to make "The American Boj' a fcuccess. IVe appeal to our teachers and (superintendents to afford our members every possible advantage for approaching their schoolmates.

Tito Lurc llcul Entitle Title Ciiiii- lltllllN lllty JolPI iNHtlt'H. If ft ell-matured plans go through, there Is to be a consolidation of tho Real Es tate. Title Insurance Company and the Columbia Title Company in the near fu ture. The proposition for the consolida tion will be voted upon at the annual meetings of the stockholders of the com panies In January, and It Is the opinion of large holders In both that a large ma jority oto will be cast In favor of the plan. If this proves to be the cae, the joining of the companies will take plate as soon as the details can be arranged Uoth companies are doing a fair busi ness despite the recent dullness In real estate transactions, and both aro pajing. 1 per cent dividends carly. The stocks of both companies are well held and con sidered good Investments. The reason advanced for consolidation by those who fax or the plan is that the one companj could do all the business now give" to both, and that, with expenses only a vcr) little larger than each is pajing at pres ent. Only one set of officers would be requir ed and only one clerical force, and one otlice building. The weekly expenses of each compiny for clerks and officers is something like J1.C00. A Urge part of these clerks are engaged In miking ery expensive dupli cate records of all transfers of District real estate. One of these records would, of course, be superiluous John T. Arms, the principal stockholder of the real estate company. Is the chief promoter of the plan, lie has secured control of a majority of the stock of Ills coinpiny and the vote of the company is assured for consolidation. The Colum bia stock U held In smull lots, scattered among the business men of the city, and it cannot be stated so accurately how Its to the differences of opinion held b) load vote will be thrown. It Is known, how- l"g Interests in the property us to the ever, that many of the largest holders wisdom of certain extensions of the com. are friendly. Sir. Arms stated to a re- pan's lines, and It had no relation to tho porter for The Times jesterday that he knew of no large holder likely to express disapproval. It Is understood that there has been some talk of all attempt to dlay or de feat consolidation b) ottlcers In the com panies. Mr. Asliford, the president of .1. - r. . .. - ...... r l- l ., ,, .1 the Keal Instate Company, Is known not to be entirely friendly to the deal. He Is . not opposed to joining the two compau- ' les, but he believes that the Columbia which Is the vouuber, should make the I corccssions, accepting the general propo sition of his compau). W. E. Edinonston, pre-Ident of the Co lumbia, Is not willing to accede to this. The consummation of the plan would, of I cour.c. necessitate the resignation of one ' of the presidents, or his acceptance of a lower position. This ptrtlal opposition of the otllcers is unfortunate, because of their lutluence through proxy votes, which have enabled them to carry their own plans as they saw fit at previous meetings of the stock holders. It is understood that the plan provides for the equalization of the capital of the two companies, when tlie Join. The Re-il Estate Company is capitalized at J200.0W and the Columbia at only $150,000. rifty thousand dollars imy be added to tint of the litter company or it ma be agreed to cut down the former. One of the chief arguments for consoli dation Is that the strength of the new company would be great and Its title guarantees In demand. The joint capital ization would be at least J300.000. A FUGITIVE MEXICAN. Autlioritlt-N AU1 to Watch for bnn tliiKo Morili-. At the instance of the Mexican lega tion, Secretarj- Haj recent!- wrote to the District Commissioners, requesting them to cause the local police authorities to furnish the State Department with any Information the may have or secure con cerning the whereabouts of Santiago Mor phy, who was an emploje of the National Bank of Mexico, and who is wanted for forger and robber' committed to the prejudice of that institution. A request was also made to keep the man under surveillance, if found, pending the Insti tution bj- the Mexican government of proceedings for his extradition. According to Information furnished bj the Mexican legation. In this city, Mor phy Is about twentj-four jears of age, rather belov.- middle height, stout, with an inclination to corpulency, with black hair, black ejebrows. and scanty black mustache, arched forcheac, large mouth and fiat nose. He dresses well and his de portment is easy and correct. He speaks English and French well. He left Mexico early in April last, and has been in some cities In this country, and In Paris and London, accompanied by a person named Alberto Desentis. Major Slveter Instituted Inquiry at all the local hotels and found that no such man had been In the 'city. The Commis sioners yesterday Informed Secretarj- Hay of this fact. OUR TRADE WITH TURKEY. A Direct LIlii of SteuilifcL-ipM In Sltlil to Be s,ecemary. The State Department gave out for pub lication jesterdaj a report from Consul Dickinson, at Constantinople, in reference to the need of direct communication be tween this countrj and Turkej-. The paper states that a direct line of steamships between New York or Phila delphia and Mediterranean and Black Sea ports, lies at the thresholdi of the whole question of extending American trade with Turkey. There Is no other ob stacle in the waj-, but American manufactures and products ought not to have to compete with English and Ger man goods if compelled to bear the extra charges, as well as loss b) breakage, In cident to trans-shipment at some Eu ropean port. It appears from the consular Invoices that the goods sent through consular of llces are amply sufficient to furnish all the freight that a semi-monthly line of steamers could carry on their westward trips. These, too, are shipments direct to the United States, and do not include the large shipments made to London and there sold and trans-shipped to America, which would be likely to go by a direct line If one were running.

Louir-rg;IcctciI Inhiich lluc- mi Oul Iiif? nnd the Tunc In Firm. New York, Nov. 17, An active business was carried on in all the divisions of the stock miiket todaj, and further advances generally resulted. Interest was again exceedingly well distributed throughout the list and n number of long-neglected issues were dealt in. Itarrlng natural re actions, niejL)" of the market was very lirm throughout the da). The money market, whlft! steady, ruled practically Ht jesterday's level, and gave no stens of Increasing stringency. Tills as tho fun damental factor In the day's situation, as It has been'sl'nce the political situation cleared up through the elections of ten dajs ago. 1'orelgn advices In regard to the actual status of the pence negotia tions were somewhat conflicting, but they were not on that account particularly dis turbing to speculative and investment con fidence. ' The foreign -arbitrage houses had large orders in this market on both sides of the account, but on btianee their dealings weie on a small scale. Tho llrmness of the general London market, however, in dicated a plicid foreign political situ i tlou. and In that respect was a favorable influence on the d ly's dealings. The first of the leports of tin tralflc returns for the second week of October were publish ed todaj, including mat of the St. Paul company. A smaller Increase was reported than the street has of late become accustomed to expect, but on the other hind, toda)'s returns for the period have been exceed ed only once in the companj's hlstor). The market vas not uniformly strong, and the most conspicuous exceptions to the general steadiness were American To bacco, Suar rteflning ami the Northern i-acinc snares The constant pressure evident in the last named was referred question of the dividend upon the com mon stock. Tint question will be settled In the affirmative at the directors" meet ing early next month Among the strong features were People's Gas, the Grangers, Denver and Rio Grande Preferred and Metropolitan Street Hailwav. The gains I.. . l. . . . . ' . . in uiesc stocks and In the general markt were all material!) shaded In the last Hour In one of the general rifeslons re ferred to above. An Important announce, ment of the daj was that of the si ttl ment of the liquidation bv the stockhokb rs of 11 S.O against the reorganization plan. It was reporteil that thf pooled holdings of S1.C09 shares had been sold to the re organization s)iullcate.

The market was unsatisfactnr) 10 the bulls jesterday, and for that matter to the bears as well, as business during the latter part of the da) was dull and tluc tuatlons small. There was Irregularitj in the first hour, a slight rallj at noon, and later declines and a lack of Interest. It Is evident that the .fever of the public lo get into the market is over, for the time at least, and It seems reasonable to sup pose that there will be little business and little change In prices for several dajs at least. One cause of the lack of liveli ness is the uncertamt) over tl'e situation at Paris, a disposition being manifest to wait for developments. The level of prices is also discouraging 10 the public general ly. However rosy the prospects of roads such as the grangers are, for instance, ill takes a large share- of faith in the JIc Klnley Administration to bu) them when the present range of prices Ins not been equaled In any of them before In the last ten jears. People whosft memorj is ionj can remember that In the 'SOs Burdiigto-i sold above present prices when the divi dend rate was S per cent, and thit Bock Island reached a high mark of 140 with a )carl) dividend rate of 7 per cent, but man) can see no absolute assurance that there is to be a repetition of these figures. Despite these facts, however, the grang ers are very strong. They were among the most active stocks In the list jester da) and all except Rock Islind showed small net gains for the da). The St. Paul statement was most satisfactory. Tho comparative position of the grangers makes many people enthusiastic over them; perhaps tiie) will llnd unwarrant ably so. Burjlngton reached o-S and St. Paul 113 3-4 F.A Atchison preferred continues to be one of the favorjtesj , It seems to be ptetty well settled (that the stock will get at least 1 per cent ""dividend in Januiry, and It has been bulled bv one of the strongest cliques In the, street. The arguments for and against AtchLson, and especial!) the preferred stock, have been exhausted dur ing Its recent -actlvlt). To the bears the stock Is even higher comparatively than the grangers,, and less likely to continue Its advance. rf The advance .? the dlv Idend rate on Pacific Mail rconlinued to have its effect In the morning hours, but the boom in the stock was only temporary. This stock is one of the low priced securities which will probably have an advance It there Is to be any further rise In the market any where. There is noticeable a general veer ing of attention to this class of securities, which have good prospects. The advance In them has not gone so far as that In the so-called gilt-edged Issues. Federal Steel issues were rather weak. There is a strong faith In these stocks In many quarters, and It seems well placed. A little while ago the people who predict ed the present prices were laughed at by the majority of street men. The Tederal Steel Company is one of those that will benefit first from the broadening of the American markets. It seems very certain that its business In the next jear and the next ten jears will be mignlticent. Ladenburg, Thalmann & Co. were very large bu)ers of Flint & Pere Marquette securities yesterday.
