The West Virginia coal strike Investigation was reopened today by the senate special commission to examine Charles M. Pratt, of New York, about the owner ship of the coal lands being worked In the Paint Creek district.

He denied that he yas a di rector of the Standard Oil company or that the company had an interest, di rect or indirect in the land. Ileilnce Reserve Board. Passing: over for the present the is sue of whether a central bank or a re gional bank plan shall be the basis of the bill, the committee agreed to elim inate the secretary of agriculture and the controler of the currency from the membership of the federal reserve board. The amendment has been con ceded by president Wilson. The committee voted to eliminate the preliminary organization of a board to take charge of the work, whether the bill provides a central or a regional scheme. Republicans Urge Central Bank. The five Republicans, Weeks, Mc iean. Nelson, Crawford and Bristow, argued for the central bank. They were joined by senator Hitcheock, one or tne .Democrats, who has ODDOsed laws, especially "olue sky" acts, which, the report declared, were crude, ill considered legislation passed by unin formed legislators, doing some good and much harm. Profits, said Mr. Hoyt have not in creased with the increase in the volume of business, a condition largely due to restrictive legislation, such as the full crew law, laws with respect to safety devices, hour of service and the like. Formerly, read the report, English. French and Dutch investors regarded the United States as their favorite field: now their money is going to South America and their own respective colonies. The American Investor suf fers likewise. "The financing of railroads is getting more difficult" continued the report.

Members of the committee expressed the belief last night that in view of the opposition to the central bank scheme that plan would be rejected, but that the committee would take ad vantage of the president's concession to reduee the number of regional re terve banks provided for by the bill for 12 to as low as four or five.

Paper mon ey printed for the Constitutionalist government of Mexico in the United States cannot be held as contraband by the United States, according to judge T. S. Maxey, of the United States court. The judge rendered such a decision here Tuesday afternoon. In the case of a representative of the Constitu tionalists against the United States government for seizing $200,000 worth of paper money printed in the United States and en route to C P. Diaz to the rebel government, the judge or dered the money released. . The department of justice of the United States had declared that the money could not be held as contraband of war and the treasury department had held that it could not be seized as counterfeit Mexican money, but sec retary of state Bryan is said to have ordered the money held on the ground that its circulation in Mexico would cause financial anarchy In that coun try. Judge Maxey could not find any law for such reasoning, he said, and or dered the money turned over to the Constitutionalists and their agents. The United States has announced an ap peal, which will delay matters.

It is said, he has attempted to leave there for El Paso, but has always "changed his mind." Two months ago there was t,,Tum,or current that he had offered 510,000 to anyone who could bring him and his family safely into the United States. Gen.

PARKING of the Franklin canal through the city will begfn during the winter and is expected to be completed before next spring. Officials of the reclamation service expect to begin putting in the cement canal some time in November and as fast as this work is done, the city will carry forward the parking project. Mayor C E. Kelly stated today that he expected to have it completed by spring. The canal will be parked from Santa Fe street east to Cotton avenue and it may be parked westward to the river and a drive built along the river north to a' connection with the county road at the smelter viaduct. The canal will be 22 feet wide, some what narrower than at present, and much deeper, so that it will carry a heavier head of water. A cement para pet win De constructea along each side, On either side of the canal will be the parking and on either side of this the driveways and sidewalks. The mayor says the sidewalks next to the houses would be very narrow, prob ably only three feet wide; the drive ways would be eight feet. As the whole street is 70 feet wide, this would leave a 12 foot park space betw.een the paved drive and the canal The mayor believes that this is sufficient park space, as it would give a total of 24 feet on both sides of. the canal. Traffic would only pass in one di rection on each of the drives, all ve.J. nicies going to tne ngnt. The suggestion has been urged that the sidewalks be omitted and the drive be placed next to the property line and used for both a walk and a drive, but mayor Kelly says this is impos sible. "People would be ruff down by traf- ric, if we tried this; we must have and at street crossings, cement bridges i a sidewalk on each side," he said, "but ....- w u.. ,AbM ilbUiO UU LUGUJ. lb U1U UC UdliUVV.

INDIAN LANDS NOT UNDER STATE LAWS Supreme Court of United States Sus tains Enabling Act or New Mexico and Reverses Judge Pope. "Washington. D. C. Oct 29. The su preme court has handed down an im portant decision in what is known as the Sandoval case, which will have a far reaching effect in the administra tion of the affairs of the Pueblo In dians of New Mexico. Sandoval was charged with introduc ing intoxicating liquor into the Santa Clara pueblo, which was claimed to be indian country. Federal Judge Pope sustained a demurrer to the indictment and dismissed the case against Sando val on the ground that the New Mexico enabling act excluding these lands from the jurisdiction of the state, was an unconstitutional restriction of the police power of the state of New Mexico. The case was taken to the sujireme J court on a writ of error. The supreme j court in its decision sustains the con- : lenuon or the government that the provisions of the enabling act of New Mexico involved in the' suit are con stitutional. This will enable the Indian service to protect the Pueblo Indians from the i liquor traffic and to conserve the pro erty of these Indians. j R fj i "S8 " I J, A mass meeting is hereby called for tonight at 8 p. m. to be held in the County Court House, to discuss the question of a joint municipal building for the city and count-.
