pairment in the rapidity and ef
ficiency of service.
The compact -will mean a sav
ing of about $2,400,000 a year
to the telegraph companies.
The Western Union has a capi
tal stock of $100,000,000. It has
1,184,557 miles of wire and 24,
--000 offices. It handles about 68,
--000,000 messages a year. Its in
come is $29,033,635 and the net
profit $7,188,065.
The Postal company's common
stock pays 2 per cent, and its pre
ferred 4 per cent.
Rlplinger had charge of $100,
--000 in" the fund. The booku show
that about f60.000 of this
amount was disbursed legitimate
ly. About $16,000 of the fund
was found deposited in a local
bank, and it is believed that the
remainder all found its way in
to the absconding comptroller's
pocket.
When Riplinger's defalcations
was first reported, It was said
that the total was less than $20,
--000. Later the officials declar
ed that his $10,000 bond would
more than cover his peculatione,
but the expert's figures, made
public today, show that he stole
more than twice the amount of
his bond.

two sailors of the Hawaiian liner
Misourl barely escaped drowning
last night, midway between the

However, they caught hold of
