Aldrich Attends Dinner Given
by Clearing House Associa
tion and Then Makes Speech
Upon the Currency Question
HAS NO PET SCHEME OF
REFORM TO PROPOSE
Nevertheless the Rhode Iland
Statesman Tells Audience of
the Experience of the Mone
tary Commission in Europe
FOREIGN METHOD IS SAFE
Kansas City Nov 9Relterating his
declaration that neither he nor the
monetary commission of which he Is
head had any pet scheme of financial
reform Senator Aldrich tonight In this
city dwelt at some length upon some
of the advantages ol the European
tanking systems over the system In
the United States He spoke after a
dinner given by th Clearing House
association at the Baltimore hotel
Senator William Warner of MIssourI
I introduced the Rhode Island senator
Mr Aldrich found In the reserve sys
tm the most striking characterlstl
of European banks he said He said
that central banks of England France
and Germanythe Bank of England
and the Bank ot France and the
Relehbanlthold all the resources ot
all the banks of theIr respective coun
tries He pointed out that there Is no
legal requirement making It necessary
for foreign banks to keep In their
vaults so large a percentage of depos
its us 18 necessary In the United States
and said that the subordinate banks
regard money In the ceneral Institu
tion just a8 available for their reserve
purposes as If It were In their own
vaults
Reserve In Foreign Banks
He added that foreign banks do not
hold as till money a sum greater
than i or 4 per cent of their liabili
ties while In the United State the
average is 10 per cent The London
banks however have either In their
uwn vaults or In the Bank of Eng
land 14 or Hi per cent of their de
posits In addition these banks loan
large sums to discount houses subject
to call on short notice which they re
gard as another source of reserve
Another item of tlll greater impor
tance he said Is commercial paper
hold by secondary banks This paper
Is receivable at the Bank of England
and It Is considered by bankers far
the most important portion ot their
reserves
What Is true in Entl Id1s largely
true in Punc amI qnrmany In this
way the banks a1ftnss a credlt at the
central bank which is In Itself a reserve
serve and they titus are enabled to
loan from four to ten times the
amount that they could loan under oth
er conditions
European Laws
Mr AldrIch dwelt upon the fact that
European laws make no requirement
either as to the amount of reserve
or their publicity The percentage Is
left to the wisdom of bankers He
said that the Credit Lyonnalse the
greatest private banking institution In
the world kept practically no money
In its vaults depending entirely upon
the Bank of France In case of large
demands upon It But on the oUter
hand reserves of the central bank
amount to about 75 per cent of Its lia
bilities not only rendering It excep
tionally strong but malting It a bul
wark for other French banks
Asking lltnself how the great central
banks protected themselves in times of
stress Mr Aldrich replied
They advance discount rates as they i
did the other day For what To at
tract gold from other countries which
has the effect ot building up their re
serves This process Is always success
ful In 1007 the Bank of England ad
vanced the rate to 7 i per cent and that
step brought gold from tWentto coun
tries I asked Mr Campbell then gov
ernor of the bank what he would have
done If he had not secured the gold He
replied Ve would have put the rate up

ABSENCE OF A MONEY BELT
LEADS TO AN IN VESTIGATION
Salt Lake Relatives of Emma Rog
ers Ask Los Angeles Police
to Probe Shooting
The fact that Emma Rogers the young Salt Lake woman who lies at
her uncles home in Los Angeles with two bullet wounds in her breast
always carried a belt containing 450 in gold to provide against an emer
gency may shed an entirely new light on the story of attempted suicide
given in explanation of the shooting Monday night
A II Rogers father of the young
woman and F 11 DMr a brotherInla
who live t wri SWIt 6econSopth I
street Salt Iak lib not believe that tle
woman did the shooting and they have
wired the chief of police at Los Angela
to make a rigid Investigation and try If I
possible to find the belt the young Woman
was known to have worn about her body
A telegram from the womans uncle
received by F M Baer yesterday after
noon started R new line of Inquiry on the
part of relatives here The message stat
ed that the young woman was In a critical
condition and without funds F M Baer
said last night that this phase of the cast
had caused the first suspicion that the
young woman had not attempted her own
life To those who know the woman It ap
pears improbable said Mr Baer last
night She was of a frugal disposition
and had carried the belt of gold for seV
eral years It contained 4ZO and Emma
aiways said that she would not touch It
unless something happenerl to her among
strangErs Another feature of the cat
that looks suspicious Is that two shots
were fired Into the womans breast and
that the shooting took place In a crowded
business building
Emma was always of R retiring dis
position and a building ofthat kind would
have been the last place she would have
selected had she any thought ol shooting
herself Her father and myself believe
that there has been foul play somewhere
and we have wired the chIef of police at
LOB Angeles to make a search for the
belt of money which we are positive
should have been about her body
A JL Rogers the lather said last night
that he would go to Los Angeles and
make an investigation It Is his belief
that an attempt at murder Is the correct
explanation of the shooting In the mean
time arrangements have been made to
Jend funds for the care of the young
woman

Under the white glare of two powerful arc lamps which Illuminate both the Interior and exterior of the Schramm
Johnson drug store No 2 at Fifth South and lain streets and In plain view of persons passing on the sidewalk the
man who has come to be recognized as the most gentlemanly holdup ever operating In Salt Lake held three emploCs of
the store at the point of a gun partially concealed by his coat and rifled the cash register of bout JoJQ The robbery
took place at exactly 10 oclock last night and fully a score of persons passed the drug store without realizing that the
three clerks In the place were being forced to smIle and look pleasant by the selfpossessed little man who was apparently
making a purchase at the prescrlptlm counter
From the descrIption given by N A Porter the prescription clerk In charge of the store the robber Is the same man
who robbed the Hazel drug store at Eighth South and Second Vest streets early last Saturday nIght He wore no mask
and made no attempt to conceal his Identity smiling pleilsantly as he ordered Mr Porter the young man at the soda
fountaIn and the delIvery boy to make no move cneerfull fiompnnylng thIs order with the display of a gun held eady
for Instant use The man then cirpUed the clljh register Into his pockets and In hess than a mlnut s time had joliied
another man who had meanwhile stood glIlrd at the door
The three men In the drug 1tQrO say they could positively Identify the man He was dressed tn the clothes of an
ordinary laborer but Mr Porter says hat his face and nands bore evidences of refinement and this was also expressd
in his manner Qfaddresslng the lerks It was thought he meant to make 11 purchase when he first stepped to tha pre
scrlptioH counter
The man paid no attention to the crsh register at the soon fountain anti did not seem willing to risk a1onger stay
In he lllale The amount taken represented the days receipts The method of operation was precisely the same as was
used at the Hazel drug store und similar to robberies In two or three cafes of the city recently

ALASKA COAL LAND
CASES ONCE A AIN
Former Agent Glavis Makes
Series of Charges Which
Are Vigorous Denied
The controversy over the Alaska coal lands has broken out once more
L R Glavis formerly in the field service of the general land office has
furnished an article for Colliers Weekly in which Secretary Ballinger
Commissioner Dennett Assistant Secretary Frank Fierce and others are
accus d dLaidihg and a betting theptatj9i pf frauds
Secretary Ballinger denounces the article as a tissue of falsehoods and
is backed up in his assertions by Commissioner Dennett exGovernor
Moore of Washington H C Henry and others conversant with the facts
in the case
CHARGES AGAINST i
SUPERIOR OFFICER I
I
Glaves Poses as the Champion
of the Law in Alaska
Coal Cases
Mr GlavIs In his article In Colliers
Weekly makes the following assertions
From 1J02 to 1900 I was In the field r
Ice of the general land office for the last
two and a halt years as chief of field
division In September 1909 1 was sum
marily removed from my position without
a formal hearing by Richard A Ballinger
secretary of the Interior by authoriza
tion oCthe President of the United States
That removal was accompanied by the
publication of II letter of the President
to Mr Ballinger I bell eve that my rE
moval waN unfair because In It the Pres
Ident gives weight to II charge against
me which I never had the opportunity to
see er answer The President states in
his letter that I wIthheld from him infor
mation favorable to my superiors I do
nol know of any such Information with
held by me nor am I conscious of doing
my superiors Injustice Nevertheless 1
should not now make any public state
ment ol the mater I were It not still pos
sible to eave for the government many
thousands of acres of coal lands which I
believe the land office may In the near
future grant to fraudulent claimants
The hope that my statement will help
to arouse public sentiment and that this
danger to the national resources may be
averted Is what actuates me This state
ment will simply gIve facts and leave to i
the Judgment of those who read whether
or not the land office has beeR 3msIous
lLh Plie srlce re facts arwLmses
Future Coal Supply
The coal lands ot Alaska owned by the
government amount to over 100100 acres
They are the future coal supply of the
nation of almost Inestimable value Pm
sesOn of them by private individuals
means great wealtha monopoly ot them
woucI be n national menace
On Nov 12 1906 President Roosevelt
withdrew all coal lands In Alaska from
public entry but previous to that time
there wee about 900 claims filed covering
about 100000 acres nearly the whole of
the coal fields The law attempt to pre
vent monopoly of such claims by limiting
the amount of each claim and providing
that each claimant must take up the land
In his own InterEst and for his own use
This law has been Interpreted by the su
preme court of the United States to for
bid speculating In coal lands before n
tryelther by dummy entlIJ1en or by
previous agreEments to consolidate claims
after entry Of these 000 claims to Alaska
coal landsamong them the secalled
Cunningham groupthe maJority are
fraudulent
Charges of Glavis
As to the action of the land office on
thEse claims I assert that the land or
flee ordered the Cunningham claims to
patent without due investigation when
Commissioner Ballinger knew they WEre
under suspicion that while In office Com
missioner Ballinger urged congress to
pass a law which would validate fraud i
llent Alaska claims that shortly after
resigning from office he became attorney
for the Cunningham group and other
Alaska claims that soon after he became
secretary of the Interior bi office ren
dered a dedslon which would have vali
dated all fraudulent Alaska claims A re
versal of that decision on every point was
obtained from Attorney General Wicker
sham Had It not been for Mr Wicker
shams decision every fraudulent Alas
ka claim would have gone to patent I
assert that In the spring of 1109 the land
office urged me to an early trial of these
easel before the investigation was fin
ished and when Secretary Ballinger as
the President stated knew that the Cun
ningham claims w8e invalid When l ap
pealed to Secretary Ballinger for post
ponement he referred me to his subor
dinates The department of agriculture
Intervened I was superseded In th
charge of the cases and the mati who
superseded me endorsed my recommends
tlons and the postponement was granted
Immediately thereafter I made my report
on the Cunningham cases to President
