Pittsburgh, Pa. Tho First-Second National bank of Pittsburgh, tho First National bank of McKocsport, a neighboring city, tho American Water Works & Guarantco Co., and tho banking houso of J. S. and W. S. Kuhn, Incorporated, of this city, wero forced Into tho hands o receivers by tho failure of the first named In stitution to open Its doors Monday morning. The closing of the First Second National bank was ordered by tho deputy controller of the currency, T. P. Kane, after every effort had been made to meet government re quirements as to legal reserve. Tho Kuhn banking house has &x tensive interests in Irrigation projects throughout the west and mines and traction sj stems throughout western Pennsylvania, besides being a domi nant factor in the American Water Works & Guarantee Co. W. S. Kuhn was president of tho First-Second National bank, vico president and director in the banking bouse, and vice president and director T5f-;TB -JUa.erlcan Water Works & Guarantee Co., besides being a direc tor of the McKccsnort bank. Would Save Big Firms. J. S. Kuhn was a director of the First-Second National bank, president and director of the American Water Works & Guarantee Co., president and director of the McKeesport bank and chairmnn of the board of directors of the banking houso. When it was learned that the banks would have to suspend business steps were taken to protect tho American Water Works & Guarantee Co., and the Kubns'- banking house, and ap plication was made in the federal court in the afternoon for receivers for both institutions. Throughout the day a statement o( the banks' and affected companies affairs was awaited with anxiety, but nono was forthcoming until at night, when Mr Kane issued the following formal statement: "At a meeting of .the directors ol the First-Second National bank held on Sunday, tho condition of tho bank and the results of the recent investi gation of the bank examiners were discussed. After full consideration tho directors declared their inability to make good the bank's inpaired cap ital and without dissent decided that it would be best for the protection of depositors and all other interests to have tho controller of the currency take charge and to arrange for tho liquidation df the bank. The Pitts burg clearing house committee, whfch lias been engaged for the past four days in going over the affairs of tho bank with the examiners and in mak ing a careful Investigation as to Its condition, refused to furnish funds sufficient to justify tho bank in keep ing its doors open and agreed under tho circumstances there was no alter native to the course recommended by the bank's directors. The officers of the bank have expressed to the de partment tho belief that t..ero will ultimately be but little if any loss to the bank's depositors. Tho" liquida tion of the bank and the distribution qfits assets will proceed as expedi tiously as possible. Run on Bank. In tho early hours of the day a run was made on the Pittsburg Bank for Savings, another Kuhn in stitution, because of the climax in the affairs of the First-Second Na tional. All demands up to $50 wero paid without question and notice for larger amounts were asked running 30, CO and 00 days, according 'to the amount demanded by the depositors. This institution also made a state ment that It had ?5,000,000 In cash and quick assets and was prepared foi any emergency. Tho run was over before the clos ing of tho banking hours. Tho former First-National bank, which was accredited as one of the strongest banks in the country, was merged with tho Second National bank In March, tho merged Institu tion taking tho names of the two banks. All that tlmo Oscar Telling, formerly of the controller's depart ment, who was president of tho First National, was made vice presl dent, and W. S. Kuhn then of tho Second National bank, was made president. Tho affairs of the First-Second Na tional are in tho hands of C. C. Mur ray, who hoB been appointed recolver. Naval Prisoner Gets Away, Boston, Mass. A naval prisoner from Port Royal, W ought hero lato at night on tho steamer City of Mompljs from Savannah, broke from his guards and leaped into tho harbor-before tho uhip reached her dock, Searchlights from the revenue cut ter Greuhnm and from an incoming excursion boat failed to disclose tho man, though tho marine guard fired one volley at what they thought was a head bobbing In tho water.

Put-in-Bay, O. Cannons roared an imperial salute as with the impres sive ceremony of Masonic rites the cornerstone of the Perry memorial was laid here in the face of a blazing sun and pitiless heat. Thus was inaugurated the first of a long summer series of celebrations in cities on the great lakes to do honor to tho victory 100 years ago"of Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry in the battle of Lake Erie off these shores, the campaign of William Henry Harrison in the northwest, and the enduring of a century of peace between America and Great Britain. Put-in-Bay "awoke Friday morning at 4:30 at the first roar of the sunrise saluto of 100 guns from tho naval re servo ships and United States revenue cutters assembled in the bay, to a day of stifling heat. The mercury kept on rising as large excursion boats from Cleveland, Detroit, Toledo and Sandusky unloaded their crowds, until at noon it was well nigh un bearable, but a slight breath of air that stirred in tho afternoon proved the salvation of the black coated, white plumed Knights Templars, emi nent men from all parts of the coun try and tho throngs participating in or witnessing tho ceremony. Following the cornerstone cere mony, conducted by E. S. Griffiths of Cleveland, grand master of the Masonic grand lodge of Ohio, and other officers of that body, there wero formal exercises In the as sembly hall at which John H.

Intention Is to Fix Up Something Llko 100,000 Miles of Highways In Ohio During tho Next TenJ(ear8. Special Columbus Correspondent. Columbus, Ohio. ONE of tho most perfect organ izations in behalf of good roads In the history of Ohio Is now being formed. Prob ably it won't be excelled by any other stato In tho union. It will reach its tentacles into every nook and corner of the state and It will endeavor to enlist tho aid of every person inter ested in better highways and byways. The organization work is being dono by tho Stato Federation of Good Roads. Representatives aro being sent Into every county and city and vil lage in the state to form local bodies and ultimately It is the Intention to cement tho hundreds of locals into a general association. Tho aim of the movement is to give encouragement to the good roads movement, already given a powerful impetus by tho ac tion of the recent general assembly In voting a tax levy of one-half of one mill annually forj?ood roads. Those back of tho movement that resulted in the big tax levy don't want tho public interest to lag. They realize that all of the people must be enthus iastic for better roads If tho move ment as a whole is to live. For that matter the next assembly could repeal tho tax levy law and suspend every bit of work in midair. So the general state-wide organization is for tho pur pose of keeping the fire of enthusiasm hot With tho approval of the public, It is the intention during the next 10 years to improve something like 100, 000 miles of roads in Ohio. About one-fifth of this number comprise main market and inter-county roads. They are the principal arteries of transportation and travel throughout the state. It is for their improvement that the tax lev will be expressly used under the supervision of the state highway commissioner. Tho rest of the roads aro to be improved at the direction of the commissioners of tho various counties and tho trus tees of the various townships. The new levy does not afford them specific aid but it encourages the local authori ties to perform their part in road building by setting a salutary example on the market and intercounty thor oughfares. The State Federation be lieves that the people in the various parts of the stato should encourage their officials to keep step with the road Improvement" progress of the state. The one-half mill levy In 10 years is expected to 'raise nearly $10, 000,000 for good roads. The results promised are manifold. They Include cheaper food through cheaper trans portation, a better social life through the easier means of travel, a revo lution of farm life through easier facil ities of Intercommunication, and an almost complete abridgement of the hiatus now existing between farm and cities. Can't Bar Independents. There is no law that will bar Inde pendent candidates from running for municipal office this fall. This is tiu ruling of Secretary of State Gravos7 promulgated Saturday. Tho ruling is of vast importance since it permits in dependent tickets in any city of the state. Had the decision been tho re verse, Brandt Whitlock In Toledo, and various other independent candidates in other cities would have been forced cither to accept party support or to retire from the campaign. Make Remarkable Showing. Ohio veterans of tho Battle of Get tysburg, 850 In number, now returned from tho fiftieth anniversary celebra tion of the greatest battle of tho nine teenth century, .rnado a remarkable record in their participation in the ceremonies. Although the heat was intense, not an Ohio veteran suc cumbed, although there were a few slight prostrations among them. On tho other hand eight veterans from 'other states died from the effects of the journey and the scorching heat of the sun. Practically all of the Ohio veterans are said to approvo Governor Cox's suggestion that the national government establish hemes for tho Confederate veterans. Woman Suffrage Looms Up. Wo'man suffrage is again becom ing an acuto Issue In Ohio, Ever since tho Illinois victory for equal suffrago was announced, Ohio women havo been restive undor tho restraint of comparative Inaction and aro now over anxious to enter another battle. It Is still a question however, if tho Another Cut by Liability Board Another cut of 10 por cent In rates of workmen's compensation insurance was made by tho stato liability board of awards because It bad found tho actual casualty In most lines of occu pations did not warrant the rates which havo been charged heretofore 33 por cent reduction was mado In two classes, boot and shoo wanufaoi turlng and printing. No reduction was mado in tho classes of carriage and wagon making, coal mining, elec trlcal work and oils and paper bust nesa. ' A Mr. Yaple of Chlllcothe Is an other member of the new Industrial com mission. fight will be precipitated this fall. Tho more conservative equal suffragists arguo that now Is too soon after tho defeat of suffrage last fall to begin another campaign, but tho more ard ent hold that nothing can bo lost by starting a campaign Immediately, even though the people again should give an adverse vote. It will mean at least education, assert tho radical leaders of Ohio suffragists, and will bo another stepping stone to victory oven though final victory bo not at tained. No Violent Tactics. From tho Capitol here there is every indication that equal suffrago Is go ing to be as vital an Issue In Ohio and throughout the United States dur ing tho next few years as It has been and now Is In England. Not that the American suffragettes will resort to violent tactics. There is little, if any, promlso of that. But it is shown that the leaders of the suffrage movement will leave no stono unturned until they havo turned turvy every stato in the11 union. Ohio, for example, with out question will vote again on suf frage nexet fall if not this fall. And every eastern, state will be divided soon In a warring camp with the suf fragists on tho one side and the "antl" on the other. The victory In Illinois is tho incentive that is caus ing the suffrage "leaders to make new and determined onslaughts. The issues Involved are far more serious than many imagine. The liquor Inter ests of tho nation, for example, don't view the situation with the same com placency with which it looked upon suffrage a half dozen years ago. Fact In that woman suffrage is the biggest bugbear the liberal interests havo had in recent years. Liquor People Will Fight. So the liquor people are prepared for a determined fight. Tho manufac turing Interests in many cases will aid them. Large corporations will throw their Influence to tho "antls." On the opposite side the biggest single factor will be the liquor vote. It will go almost solidly with woman suf frage as it has gone in England. On the whole tho contest won't be a mero pillow fight. Each aide is grimly de termined. The suffragists aro jubil antly aggressive, flushed with recent victory. The opposition believing It self to be warring for its very exist ence, is fighting with Its back to the wall, and Is terribly desperate. High Court Vacation Controversy. The biggest and most interesting feature of the hot weather here is tho supremo court vacation controversy. It's becoming so interesting In fact that It is causing many obsorvere to forget tho torrid heat of tho sun. Just now It is Judge Wanamaker'o Inning. And ho. is making tho most of It. When he cancelled his trip to Europe ho mado a tremendously big hit, even though It was a sacrifice. Ho Is back In Columbus now smiling at the dis comfiture of his colleagues. Apparent ly they belioved that they could put him In a hole politically If they waited until he loft for Europe before an nouncing their determination to work most of tho summer. But Wana makcr is showing promise of getting out -of tho hole and then shoving his five colleagues in. In other words he is going to nsk that the court remain in session all summer and do busi ness. Ail through tho hot weather Wanamakor will demand that tho court 'work at dry and tedious cases Instead of answering tho call' of lako bretjzes and shady summer groves. And the funny part of it is for tho averago citizen who rarely gets any vacation at all, that the court prob ably will be compelled to come to Wanamaker's terms. Tho Akron jur ist has shown bio cards faco upward on tho table Is a gaming analogy can bo pardoned. The 'nerxt play of tho opposition will bo fascinating to ob serve. sfO-C.sO Sell Vegetables by Weight. Whon you buy a peck of potatoes from your grocer now you don't get a peel: of potatoes.

Tho conversation had gone to some length, Mr. McCombs said, when a man who was Bitting In a corner arose with a merry Bmllo flitting over his features and broke Into the gabfest "Your philanthropists aro all right," he remarked, "but I think It Is only just that my next-door neighbor should bo Included in the kindly disposed bunch; "Wo -aro willing to add him to tho list," responded ono of tho others, "but is ho really go generously Inclined?"
