New York. Oct 1 Business on the stock exchange for the nine months of the calendar year ending yesterday showed a marked lulling: off in com parison with the corresponding period of 112, despite the greater activity and general price advances of the last few weeks. At the close of yesterday s session a total of approximately to. 000.000 was recorded for the first three-quar ters of the year, while bond sales ag gregated about $ 128,000,000. These to tals re present a decrease of about 31. 000,000 shares and 1186,000,000 bonds compared with tho same period last year. To an extent, however, these fig ures are considered misleading for tly reason that under the policy of re form inaugurated by the exchange early in the year, the dail; operation? of the lost few months are believed to represent more actual business than was transacted in former years. I when manipulation often was of a flagrant character Brokers view the outlook as more hopeful than some months ago This is indicated in the partial recovery o? the price of stoek exchange seats from their low price of the mid-year.

N Murtl of Mandapakl. India, who described at length the primitive methods of manufacture stJIl In vogue there and the wonder ful results attained by the native weaver.-, whose ancestors for cen turies have been equally adept In the art. He contrasted the lot of the Indian ami the English workers, saying thai Hie freedom of the former from the struggle for existence that crushes the soul of his Knllsh brother left him free to cive to his work the contentment of mind and leisure, and pride and pleasure In it which Is es sential to all artistic excellence. He said in part: "Neither tradition nor history can give any precise information about the time when cotton first appeared as an important article in the do mestic economy of our Indian house hold But as geology has preserved early forms of life upon the earth, so has our Indian society preserved in its different strata the manners and customs of prehistoric ages, side by I sin-' with the highest types of mod ern civilisation, "While the greater part of the florid was In such B low state ment al I v, morallv, and physically and bile they were dressing in skins of animals or in coarse cloth made from grass, flax, or wool, there were people living in India who were dressing In fine cottons and beautiful )y colored labrlcs.

DEPORTED MEN ! LEAP TO DEATH New York, Oct. 1. Four men. who were to have been deported on the steamer France, obtained liberty or de,ath today bv leaping forty-five fe-et from an upper dock to the Hudson as the vessel lay at her pier. All trace of the men was lost. The find Ing of two life belts In the river, how ever, led to the belief that they had perished. The men were confined in a cabin near the hospital ward. They es tnped b rutring a hole In the 'wall, trawling down chutes to the coal pit and climbing the emergency ladders to the upper deck. So riuietly did thev work that a guard stationed out ! side the cabin door heard nothing of , their movements All had arrhed j here recently as stowaways oo GREAT EXODUS TO U. S.

Officials at ths war department ar not alarmed over the situation, now thfit the border patrol has been rein forced by additional soldiers from Fort Sam Houston, and they suggest ed today that the presence oj a. ma chine gun platoon on the American side at the International bridge would in all likelihood insure protection, r gardless of the straits In which the hard pressed Constitutionalists may find themselves. So far no application has been re ceived for the admission Into Eagle Pass of a band of Japanese who. tU said, fear the federal occupation of i'ledras Negras because their smpa thles have been with the Coristltu tlonallstS. In case they should be granted an asylum on the Texas side, it is probable they would be inter vened and in that event a question would immediately arise over the pay ment of their board bill The Jap anese are said to be destitute. oo NEGRO CLEARED OfjDSPICION Mysterious Woman Is Want ed in Connection With Gay Murder Case.

GENERAL POLICY Rules, Regulations and Methi ods Required Increase Ex penses Each Year. Boston. Mass., Sept. 30. A short route to the restoration of public coir I fidence In the railroads of the coun try would be furnished by a poslttvt k declaration by federal and state com- missions that rates may be advanced, in the opinion of Howard Elliott, new ' president of the New York New Hi' ven A Hartford railroad Mr. EllioH made this statement tonight In an ad dress before the Boston Chamber of Commerce. The needs of railroads generally were dealt with at length by Mr. Elliott, who said in part: "If we are to continue lo have pri vately owned railroads supervised and regulated by governmental authority and if we are to avoid ownership oy the government, the owners and users of the railroads must work together. Personally, I do not believe in gov ernmental ownership in a counto like the United States where our political methods still are in need of improve ment The policy of the government nation and state in the last twenty he years, seems to have been to de cide rate questions in the great ma jority of cases in such a way that rates rarely were advanced and gen erally were reduced and to introduce rules, regulations and methods that increases expenses. The commissions naturally feel the great pressure of the millions of users of railroads for redueed rates and increased facilities But If tho rates continue to decline, or even- remain on the present level -and if expenses are increased by high er wages and costs of materials and by the introduction of different ap- I pllance6 and facilities for more rap idly than the roads can obtain mon ey, then there is but one result for 1M some of the railroads of the United States bankruptcy I believe the -W commissioners, who hae such tureat " powers realize their responsibility to the owners of tne properties as well as to the users and I hope earnestly that they will give practical evidence of their realization by permitting some advances in rates. 'Should the commissions federal and Btate make a positive declara tion that rates may be advanced so as to permit the properties to meet all of their obligations, pay 'a'r T turn to stockholders, and leave a bal ' I ance for Improvements, they will do much for tho entire country Such a declaration would inspire confi dence and cive to existing securities J a better standing that they now have both here and in Kurope; and help to market new securities upon an In terest basis more favorable than now is possible, because of the uneasiness in the minds of investors about the -future net earnings of the railroads.''
