In tho heyday of the thirtie- and for
ties. Dr. T. M. Crothers of Hartford,
Conn., has come forward with, a dec
laration that is quite as interesting as
the one Doctor Osier disowned, and
that ought to attract equally wide at
tention. He says that "there are
many reasons for believing that we
tarry around with us great reserve
powers, and unknown energies which
ire seldom used, and that in old age
appeal to these powers may give a
certain vigor entirely unexpected,
which lengthens . our life and prac
tically overcomes disease." He also
cays that ' the man past sixty and
from that on to eighty ought to be at
his very best because life is then no
experiment, and he has attained a po
sition where he can use all his row
ers'to the best advantage." Doctor
Crothers Insists that there Is no the

a gTeat variety of fact3 which fortu
nately are becoming more realized as

SECRETARY MACVEAGH MAP'S
OUT BIG REFORM FLAN
Show Savlr-s of Vast Sum in Govern
ment Expenses Broom for
Washington. Franklin MacVeagh,
secretary of the treasury, submitted
his annual report to congress. Among
the recommendations are currency
reform, extension of the scope of the
national banking laws in the event
of no immediate general changes in
the monetary system, civil service re
tirements, a customs service free from
"practical" politics, businesslike meth
ods in the dairy transactions of the
government, and a general abolition
f red tape.
Expenses of government in the fis
cal year 1912. for which this session
of congress is asked to appropriate,
are estimated at $630.494,013.12. The
estimated expenditures; of the Panama
Canal are given as $56,920,847.69,
making a total of $687.414.860.81. The
eotimates represent net savings of
about $18,000,000 in the executive de
partments, compared with the ap
propriations for the curent fiscal year.
Calls It Panic-Breeder.
"Our system can fairly be called a
panic-breeding system," he says,
"whereas every other great national
banking and currency system is panic
preventing. As long as we continue
under our present system we are lia
ble to panics, and the devastations of
panics reach Republicans and Demo
crats, and all parts of the country
alike. Panics are no longer necessary
and no longer respectable. It is for
the government to say whether we
chall have them in the future. It L a
mere matter of choice.
"We have no system of reserves;
our banking system destroys them. It
concentrates in New York what are
pretended to be reserves and then
forces the New York banks to lend
and abolish them. Our system, in
stead of building up a reserve, de
stroys it as fast as. It inclines to ac
cumulate." DRAFT NEW WATER POWER PLAN
National Conservation , Committee
Hope to Form Agreeable Policy.
Washington, e- A plan tc bring
together the opposing advocates of
federal regulation of water power
and those who stand for state regula
tion, on a water power policy upon
which boih can agree, Is being consid
ered by the executive committee of
the National Conservation association,
of which Gifford Pinchot 'is presi
dent. The object of the plan, which was
drafted by Philip P. Wells, counsel for
the association, who as former law of
ficer of the forest service had a large
share In devising the system of water
power regulation in national forests,
is to afford a water power platform
on which both sides of the controversy
may unite to protect the public inter
ests! and at the same time encourage
the development of many millions of
horse power now going to waste in the
mountain streams of the far west and
the great rivers of the central and
eastern parti of tho country.

Indicted for Conspiracy.
Detroit, Mich. The anti-monopoly
campaign of Attorney General Wick

week with the result that indict
ments were returned by the federal
grand jury against 16 firms and 32
individuals alleged to have secured
control of 83 per cent, of the annual
output of enamel ironware, bathtubs,
sinks, lavatories, etc., in tho United
Against each firm and each Individ
ual there are two indictments, con
taining six and four counts respec
tively, under the Sherman anti-trust
law, charging in substance that the
defendants control S5 per cent, of the
output of enameled iron ware, tubs,
sinks, lavatories, etc.. and that they
have conspired to restrain trade and
fix prices. It is alleged that the con
spiracy was formed at Mount Clemens,
Mich.,last April and the criminal
cases grew out of a civil suit brought
in the federal .court at Baltimore.
The two Indictments against each
defendant contain six and four counts
respectively and charge that the de
fendants, controlling S5 per cent of
the annual output, combined to re
strain the trade of manufacturers and
of jobbers of plumbing supplies by re
fusing to sell to jobbers handling the
goods of so-called independents, by
the fixing of re-sale prices, by the di
vision of the United States into eleven
zones and refusing to sell to jobbers
who wculd not maintain the re-sale
prices established by the alleged
agreement of the defendants.
It is charged that the effect of these
re-sale prices is to make the price of
the articles manufactured by the com
bination the same throughout the
United States, and to eliminate the
competition of jobbers as well as of
The indictments charge also that
the defendants compelled the jobbers
to enter into uniform contracts and
