S, M, Yeoman Suddenly Sum
moned While Working in
Lower Pinto
S. M. Yeoman, a well known miner
of tho Globe district, while working in
a twonty-two-foot wlnzo at tho Shorty
llubbel camp in Lower Pinto, dropped
doad yesterday afternoon at about 3
o'clock, as a result of what is presumed
to have been heart failure.
Tho body was at onco removed to tho
surface, whoro an inquest was held by
Justice Thomas, who had boon culled to
tho Lower Pinto country on another
With his hand on a drill which he was
turning and joking pleasantly regard
ing a visit to Globe which he expected
to make in the next few days, Yeoman's
head suddenly dropped forward and
without an outcry of any kind he fell
dead in the arms of John Matson, who
was just drawing back to strike the
drill. Matson, believing that his work
ing companion had fainted, tried to re
suscitato him by dashing water in his
face, but ho soon realized that all was
over and called for help from above.
Yeoman was a man about 47 years
of ago and believed to have been single.
Ho talKed but littlo of his antecedent
history and asido from tho fact that
ho has been identified with mining in
Colorado, Now Mexico and Arizona for
the past thirty years, but little is known
of him. Ho has always been associated
with good people in his mining ventures
and it is said that ho made and lost a
numbor of fortunes during tho early
days in Colorado. Ho was well known
in Crcedc, Aspon and the Cripple Creek
districts in Colorado and in the mining
eamps of Now Mexico, coming from that
territory to Arizona about two years,
ago. At tho time of his death ho owned
a numbor of claims in this district and
was associated with Charles Martin and
Shorty Hubbol in the Lower Pinto prop
erty. Mr. llubbel reached tho city last
night and notified F. L. Jones it Son,
undertakers, who will bring the body to

Announcement Has a Good Ef
fect on the Stock Market
and Checks Bank Runs,
The Bank of London Raises the
Price of Exchange, but New
York Will Get Sufficient Gold
in Spite of.this Increase,
By Associated Press.
NKW YORK, Novombor 4. A buoy
ancy of tho stock market today reflect
ed tho ultimato decision of tho large
bankors to support the two institutions,
tho Trust Company of America and tho
Lincoln Trust company, which have
been subjected to tho most bovero runs
during tho last two weeks.
Tho day was ono of doubt nnd con
flicting rumors. The fact thnt it passed
without advorso dovoiopmonts is ovi
denco thai the worst situation is prob
ably over.
At a late hour this morning an agree
ment was reached, largely through the
.inlluenco of Morgan, by which tho
trust companies will co-operate in tho
future for mutual protection. Tho di
rectors will lend nssistanco nnd with
their personal fortunes will meet tho
immediate necessities. Tho assets of
Mm tv.'o threatened companies were enrc
fully go no over by experts on Saturday
and Sunday and both were found to be
solvent, with n -considerable surplus nf
tor paying all claims. Under tho cir
cumstances it was thought advisable by
tho big men to support thorn cordially
if thov would adhcro thoroughly to
conservative mothods in tho future.
Gold engagements Binre the beginning
of the present movement now amount
to $32,000,000, which will moro than
bridge tho loss in tho surplus reserve
last week.
The disturbances which arc sweeping
over the exchange market are arousing
the conecrn of the foreign markets and
were indicated today by n riso of for
eign exchange in 2iov York consider
ably above a point nt which gold could
be profitably imported. The fact that
it is still coming this way indicates tho
determination of Now York bankers to
strengthen their position even nt a loss.
Tho high rate for bills caused by the
demand for exchange cover tho arrivals
of gold. Tho cotton bills aro not yet
fully available because the shipments
are slow and tho bills themselves arc
subjected to considerable scrutiny be
fore they are talton. The fact that tho
New York market bid a sufficient pre
mium on gold to absorb three hundred
thousand pounds from tho open market
and the withdrawal of 038,000 pounds
from tho Bank of England indicates an
increased discount rate of the Bank of
England, mado at a special meeting to
day before tho opening of tho New York
market, from oMj to 0 per cent, which
is not sufficient to check the gold move
ment, henco has aroused much talk in
London that the rato bo advanced to 7
pej cent at tho regular meeting of the
board of governors Thursday. This will
bo tho highest rato attained in many
years, but with the gold already on the
way or engaged for shipment even a
higher rate of tho Bank of England
would probably not injure America.
Reports from Washington indicate
that national banks throughout the
country arc sound nnd efforts of tho
comptroller of tho currency to get notes
in circulation to meet all has been con
siderable of a success. The calls for
bunk circulation arc so numerous that
the mail can hardly bo handled prompt
ly. Some amounts applied" for are small
hut thev aro scattered all over tho
country and it is believed will nid ma
terially in rclioving tho local pressure.
Tho fact that tomorrow is election day
and a legal holiday in New York afford
timo for perfecting further plans of
mutual support which aro well under
way today. Tho magnitude of tho ac
cumulation of American products is in
dicatcd by the fact that tho railroads
find themselves unable to movo it to
tho seaboard, notwithstanding the enor
mous development of traffic facilities
during tho last few years. Many lines
havo mado largo increases but the com
bined facilities aro subjected to a so
voro strain in getting tho accumulated
products from tho central west to the

GUTHRIE, Okla., November 4. "If

clared Governor-elect Haskell tonight

of putting' tho country on n sound finan

Continuing, Haskell said: "The next
congress should make nmonds for its
neglect of tho past by adopting a finan
cial system equal to tho needs f com
morco and freo from special favtoritism
to any class or domination of any spe

fact that contests affecting congress are

Next in popular interest comes in the

is personal as well as political.

Heavy Demands Force Direct
ors to Take Step to Pro- .
tect Depositors
At a meeting of tho directors of the
Globo National bank, held last night, it
was decided to suspend business tempo
rarily, and tho bank will not open its
doors this morning.
In an interview with Cashier A. G.
Smith, after tho decision was reached
last night, that gentleman said:
"The bank has the full legal reserve
on hand, which evidences tho fact that
it is perfectly solvent. The directors
decided, after carefully reviewing the
situation, and in tho face of heavy de
mands recently made on the bank that,
iu justice to all depositors, it would be
bettor to suspend.
,rl cash can be secured, which-at
this time does not seem unlikely, the
bank will reopen and rcsumo business
within a short time. Bills receivable
are more than ample to meet all obliga
tions and leave a surplus on hand."
Tho last official statement of tho
Globe National was made in August last
and showed the bank to be in fine con
dition. Tho statements of th3 bank
during the past year have occasioned
favorablo comment and there is little
doubt that if relief comes to the bank
ing world in general, which is promised
by heavy importations of gold, that the
Globo National will be able to resume.

The special excursion over the
Valley railroad on Thursday will
undoubtedly bring several hundred
people to the city and they will be
given all day Friday to visit and
shop in Globe, the time limit on
tho tickets extending to Saturday
This will provp a good opportun
ity for the business men of the
city to get acquainted with the
valley folk and to demonstrate to
them the money power of a dollar
in this market. There is little
doubt that thousands of dollars
now going to tho mail order houses
of the east would be spent in Globe
if the merchants will make a spe
cial bid for this trade.
Globo contributes heavily to the
prosperity of tho farms and
towns of tho Valley and the peo
ple of that section would be glad
to reciprocate if they really un
derstood the advantages of trading
in this market. Nearly all of the
products of the Gila valley are
consumed by this city. Let Globe
try for the trade that really should
come to this city and on Friday
the initial step should be taken.

The Federal Grand Jury Indicts
Portion of the Alleged
TUCSON, Ariz., November 4. Tho
United States grand jury today returned
indictments against tho Tucson booksell
ers, alleging" a schoolbook trust. The

nership. Tho defendants were' arrested,
arraigned and given twenty-four hours
in which to plead. All being reputable

Tho affair has created a great sen
sation in Tucson. It is the first timo

The indictment charges that on or be
fore September 20, this year, tno uc
fondants entered into an agreement by
which they wero to sell sciiooidooks
nnd school supplies nt a certain and
agreed price, thus destroying tho freo
competition that previously existed. It

gantly raised the prices."
In gathering evidenco tho grand jury

books in certain departments of tho
school had worked a great hardship
and intimated that the question would
also be inquired into, of whether these
changes wero authorized by tho law.
It was found that with tho changes
and the alleged trust prices on books
pupils in the eighth grade had to ex
pend from soven to eight dollars for
now books each year and students of
tho high school in like mannor had to
expend from $15 to $10.
