TO HELP THE BOYS Rev. T. A. Hilton falls Meeting for Tomorrow Night to Organize Men's Club. Cain's equivocation when asked as to Abel's whereabouts was the theme , for an unusually pointed address by Rev. T. A. Hilton at St. Luke's church last night. Answering ;he world-ohl query, "Am I my brother's keeper?" the popular clergyman points out the gigns of an awakening of man's re sponsibility to man—a regard ior The welfare of the other fellow —notice- able within the past half century. In everyday business life the speak er showed, honesty and cleanly liv ing and consideration for fellow creatures find their own rewards. The point of the sermon was Mr. Hilton's plea for the moral salvation iof the youth of Wenatchee. "What the young men and boys of this town | need, m. re than anything else," said ;the minister, "is a clean place of amusement, where they may go of | nights and seek companionship; yes I-—and I am liberal enough to say it— ! smoke, play cards and pool, too, if | inclined; in fact, find diversion in j many amusements which are in themselves innocent enough, but 'which some people have come to re gard as injurious because we ten hud them associated with resorts of uncertain character." A meeting will he held tomorrow night with this object in view,—the formation of a society or hoy's club in Wenatchee, to be open to all young men and boys. It is hoped that this organization may be perfected, and, though starting with a small begin ning, may prove the neuclus of a per manent and increasing membership. Rev. Mr. Hilton will attend tomorrow night's meeting, and outline tho scope and purpose of the proposed association. The meeting tomorrow night will be held in the church at 8 o'clock. Good Time Tonight. The first of a series of evenings at home to be given by the ladies of the Presbyterian church will take ; place tonight in the parlors of th<e ! manse adjoining the church. The ladies are planning to entertain their ] guests with games which will be ] played around tables. The purpose iof these social gatherings is to deep en the spirit of sociability and to keep open house to strangers and newcomers. The social is for grown ups, and old grown-ups will be made to feel at home. An opportunity will be given each one to contribute tea cents to help pay for the refresh ments. Speace Gets Deputy. I .1.

Money Crisis Due to Hoarding?. By JAMES J. HILL. Railroad Builder and Financier. CHERE IS NOTHING IN THE ACTUAL BUSINESS CONDITIONS of the country to cause or to account for the financial stress everywhere so severely felt. The crops are j good, and until money began to disappear prices were higher j than for many years. Buying and selling are not interrupted; trade is active; business as a whole is SOUND AT THE CORE. ! Neither is there an instifficicnt volume of money in the country. A year ago there was ENOUGH for all current needs. The notion that Wall street has in some mysterious way absorbed it has NO FOUNDATION. As a matter of fact, the stock transactions are only I about half what they were then, with prices greatly reduced. Proba bly this requires only from one-third to one-fourth of the money that ! was needed last year. THE TROUBLE CLEARLY COMES FROM THE HOARDING OF MONEY, NOT BY THE FEW, BUT BY THE MANY. INVESTORS, BOTH LARGE AND SMALL, FEEL UNCERTAIN ABOUT THE FU TURE OF BUSINESS ENTERPRISES, SOUND AND UNSOUND ALIKE. From whatever source it may have come the impairment of public ! confidence is a real fact. IT HAS ALREADY DONE MUCH ! DAMAGE. IT WILL DO MORE UNLESS SPEEDILY COR RECTED. This popular distrust, as far as it leads to the hoarding of cash, is as EOOLISH as it is hurtful. The people should put an end to it by releasing the money whose withdrawal from active circulation ' means business starvation. The heavy financial interests of the country are DOING THEIR ! PART. The people must put away misgivings and the present crisis I will end. Alarmist publications have done much to spread and in ■ tensify this distrust. THE BEST AND QUICKEST REMEDY IS FOR EVERY MAN WHO |IS HOARDING MONEY TO RETURN IT TO ITS USUAL EMPLOY MENT. IT IS HE WHO IS DOING THE MISCHIEF. AS HAS BEEN SEEN, THE MONEY IS IN THIS COUNTRY, BUT IT MUST BE MADE AVAILABLE. IT IS AS MUCH THE DUTY OF EVERY CITI ZEN TO DEPOSIT ALL HIS SURPLUS IN CASH IN THE BANKS, j WHICH ARE ENTIRELY SOUND AND SOLVENT, AS IT WOULD BE ITO SUBSCRIBE TO A WAR LOAN. In this way will money be put into circulation and the financial in- I stitutions of the country be enabled to make the advances without . which business CANNOT be done. Hoarding of Money Unpatriotic and Unwise. By Secretary of the Treasury CORTELYOU. IT IS A TIME WHEN EVERY CITIZEN SHOULD ASSUME HIS | SHARE OF THE BURDEN. THE HOARDING OF MONEY, THE EXACTION OF UNNECESSARILY HARSH REQUIRE- j MENTS IN BUSINESS DEALINGS, BUT RETARD OUR RE- I TURN TO NORMAL CONDITIONS. THE HOARDED MONEY BHOULD BE PUT BACK IN THE BANKS, AND THE EXACTIONS OF \ BANKERS AND MERCHANTS SHOULD BE PROPORTIONED ONLY TO ACTUAL BUSINESS NECESSITIES. TO DO OTHERWISE IS NOT j ONLY UNPATRIOTIC, BUT UNWISE. I believe that if this money of the country, wherever hoarded, were at once put back to FULFILL ITS FUNCTIONS IX THE j CHANNELS OF TRADE there would be within twenty-four hours ' an almost complete resumption of business operations. I doubt whether we can in any way estimate the loss that has fallen j upon those who have, cither through SELFISH OR MISGUIDED MOTIVES, thus drawn their money from places of MORE THAN REASONABLE SAFETY to put it where it has been lost through robbery or fire or other misfortune. The various plans advocated for currency reform must be sub jected to RIGID scrutiny, to the end that the citizens of every sec tion shall be fairly treated, their needs and requirements consulted and, above all, that whatever action is finally taken it shall be so SOUND AND WHOLESOME as to enhance our commercial standing among the nations of the world. As a people we have this and many other grave problems before us. Their solution will not be a thing of a month or a year. We must approach them with the determination to exercise DISPASSIONATE JUDGMENT and to seek as our ultimate aim justice as between man and man. Filipinos Pleased With the Outlook. By EMILIO AGUINALDO. Former Leader of Insurtfents. IT IS MY BELIEF THAT THE BENEFITS TO FOLLOW MR. TAFT'S VISIT TO THE PEOPLE OF THE PHILIPPINES WILL BE GREATER THAN THEY CAN RECOGNIZE AT THE PRES ENT TIME. I AM AT PRESENT UNABLE TO FORM AN OPINION OFFHAND OF THE POSSIBLE FUTURE ADVAN TAGES, BUT I AM CONFIDENT THAT IT HAS DONE GOOD. The opening of the assembly has long way to CEMENT | THE FRIENDSHIP of my people with the people of the United | States. As a fulfillment of a solemn promise, which many thought would ! not be fulfilled, the secretary of war DID NOT BRING INDE-« ' PENDENCE for my people in his pocket, but he brought the means .of attaining it. He told us how we can get it. The Filipinos are thankful for the information and pleased at what the assembly has done, especially in the interests of LEGISLATION, I EDUCATION AND AGRICULTURE. Money Does Not Carry Disease, By Dr. ALVAH H. DOTY, Health Officer of the Port of New York. MBWIIE theory that money acta as a medium of infection is a A PLAUSIBLE one. particularly as it. deals with an agent which is being constantly transmitted from one person to an other and among ALL CLASSES OF PEOPLE. Cloth ing, rags, merchandise, cargoes of vessels, etc., are also regarded as means by which disease is commonly transmitted. This belief is popular because it offers an explanation for outbreaks of infections diseases the origin of which is unknown. Modern sani tation, however, does not regard as valuable theories which are UNSUPPORTED BY FACT OR PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE. THE THEORY THAT MONEY ACTS M A MEDIUM OF INFECTION , CARRIES WITH IT NO SATISFACTORY OR EVEN REASONABI * j PROOF. J WHAT JOIOOL? Wenatchee Business College Students may start in at any time at this college. Our work is essentially individual. Our instruction is personal. Because of these facts our students are able to make much better progress than students in large schools where the teachers has insufficient time for individual instruction. SHORTHAND DEPARTMENT. We teach the Gregg System of Shorthand, the most popular system now in use. Gregg shorthand is taught in more colleges In the United States than all the other systems combined, which in sures its superiority. The teacher in charge of the Shorthand De partment is a Practical Teacher. He has had the practical expe rience as well as the theoretical. Has held the most difficult po sitions in the country, such as i-ailroad investigation reporter and other difficult positions. He knows what a business man requires and trains his students accordingly. We use the Touch System of typewrit ing, the "piano method,' which has long ago proved- its superiority over the old sight systems. It can be readily seen that an opera tor who is thor oughly familiar with the keyboard and has no occasion to look at the keys can constantly keep his eyes on his shorthand notes, is capable of writing more letters than one who has to be continually looking at the keys. We use all the Standard Typewriters. PENMANSHIP DEPARTMENT. This department is under the supervision of a specialist, whose work is only to he seen to he appreciated. We use the muscular movement of writing, the same as all the leading pen men use. We take a specimen if every student's writing upon entering college, and we invite you to see the progress they hava made. Most of our students after taking about three months' in struction w r rite a professional hand. BO;>KKEEPING DEPARTMENT We use the Williams & Rogers' System of Bookkeeping, which is a system taken from the offices of the most modern business houses. All our entries are prac deal ones. WORK FOR BOARD AND ROOM. •We have several good places for young men and women to work for their hoard and room, where they can get home com forts with nice people. Write us for further information, or still better, come and vis it our clsases. Our school is located on the top floor of the Col umbia Valley Bank building. L. M.

Work and Roy Doro thy, president and assistant cashier respectively, of the Commercial bank, have opened a private bank at Brewster. Whiie both are officers ;of the Commercial bank, the new in- stitution has no connection with it. It is contemplated incorporating the bank at an early date, but until that time it will be a private bank. It had been expected for-sonO? time that it was Mr. Work's intention of taking over the defunct Citizen - State Bank of Brewster, as he has been looking over its affairs for some weeks with a view of purchas ing, but this later announcement calls the deal off.
