Funds Collected Go Into Charity Fund
of the Army and Distributed to
All Parts of the World.
Tomorrow marks the beginning of
the week of self-denial with the Sal
vation Army, and throughout the whole
world each member of the army will
deny himself of some of the necessi
ties of life, contributing the price of
that article to the general fund col
lected during the self-denial week.
Each corps of the army is given an
amount to raise during the week by
the division officers, the "target" as it
is called. This amount is raised by
public collections, self-denial among
the soldiers and by voluntary contri
butions by friends.
This fund is sent to the division
headquarters and there entered into
the charity fund of the army and dis
tributed to every part of the civilized
world to me applied to the numerous
works of relief conducted by the
branches of the Salvation Army.
The scope of work carried on un
ostentationsly by this army may be
better imagined by reference to a few
statistics of the organization:
In the world there are 49 countries
occupied by the Salvation Army; the
work is carried on in 31 different lan
guages; 1,478,000 meetings are held
per annum, throughout the world:
there are 45,339 local officers in the
army; needy children registered, 325,-
--600; there are 180 shelter and food de
pots, with accommodations for 18,000
people; there are 17 prison gate
homes, 116 rescue homes, and 18 land
colonies with an acreage of 27,252 acres
In the United States are 3,773 offi
cers, cadets and employes; 983 out
posts, slum stations and social insti
tutions for the relief and betterment
of the poor; $900,000 was spent in re
lief work; there are 100 industrial
homes, wood yards, stores and other
establishments connected with the
army, with an income of $350,000 which
is redistributed in relief work.
Cummings Says Bucketshop Patrons
Not Entitled to Consideration.
FARGO, N. D., April 15—A suit has
been commenced in the district court
in this city by William Rickter of Great
Falls, Mont., against A. J. Cummings
& Co., grain and stock brokers with
offices in this city and headquarters at
St. Paul. The amount involved Is
In the complaint it is set up that
Rickter, the plaintiff, deposited with A.
J. Cummings the sum stated, which
Cummings is charged with having ap
propriated to his own use. The deal
is said to have been made at Great
Falls, Mont., where A. J. Cummings
has a branch office, which was subse
quently conducted as the Western
Grain & Stock exchange, which change
of name, so the complaint charges, was
for the purpose of defrauding deposi
tors and other creditors.
An illustration of Cummings' meth
ods is given in the case of George E.
De Neen. of Cumberland, Md., who
came from Maryland several months
ago to file a case against him involv
ing about $20,000. That case was filed
in the United States circuit court at
St. Paul. De Keen desired to buy
Brooklyn Rapid Transit stock through
Cummins, but subsequently found that
Cummings did not execute the stock
purchased at all, but kept all the de
Operated in the East.
Cummings also went to Buffalo, N.
V., and Detroit, Mich., and opened a
brokerage business under the name of
F. L. Camp & Co., with similar re
sults in both of these places, and one
H. H. Hartsock has commenced suit
for $1,640, making the charge of em
bezzlement made in the De Neeh case.
Mr. Hartsock also represents claims
for other persons ranging from $500 to
$2,000. All of these cases are pending
in the United States court in St. Paul.
After this record Mr. Cummings
went to Great Falls, Butte, and Helena,
Mont., and it was at the Great Falls
office that the transaction recited by
Rickter is said to have occurred. Mr.
Rickter's representatives have been
trying to locate funds of Mr. Cum
mings in banks, but have been unable
to do so, and garnishment proceedings
have been commenced against his lo
cal representative. It seems that all
funds are kept in the hands of his lo
cal managers to avoid trouble. Recent
ly Mr. Cummings opened at Salt Lake
and Ogden, Utah, and at Boise, Idaho,
doing business under the name of C. V.
Cummings' Defense
The sensational part of the story,
however, lies in Mr. Cummings' an-
swer under oath, in the De Neen case,
in which he says that he was only run
ning a "bucketshop," or a place where
bets were made on the rise and faill
of the market, and that all of his cus
tomers are not entitled to any consid
The language of the answer is such
a bold declaration that it has created
great surprise among the persons in
terested in the case. It is as follows:
"The said copartnership was organ
ized for the purpose of carrying on a
bucketshop, so called, that said busi
ness consisted in wagering with other
parties upon the future price quota
tions, on the exchange of stocks, grain
and other produce as compared with
the then prices thereof, and not other
wise, all of which, upon information
and belief, defendant avers was at all
said dates and times fully known to
the plaintiff and his associates, or any
of them, but avers that if he ever had
each and all of such business and deal
ings were as plaintiff and all parties
to such business and dealings were as
plaintiff and al parties to such busi
ness and dealings fully understood and
agreed mere wagers upon the future
prices quoted on the exchanges and
board of trade, of stocks, grain and
other products, as compared with the
then quoted prices thereof, and where
in and whereby no actual purchases or
sale or delivery was contemplated by
either party, but the one party was to
pay and the other receive the differ
ence between the agreed price and the
market price at a future time on the
exchange or board of trade, and the
one party was to bear the risk of a
rise and the other of a fall in price."
Cummings advertises that he is a
member of the Minneapolis chamber of
commerce, and that his stock trades
are placed in through one of the Min
neapolis houses which has a seat in the
New York stock exchange.

About Thirty Applications Have Piled
Up in Governor's Office—Under
wood's Case Must Wait.
So many applications for the par
don of convicts in the state peniten
tiary have been filed with Governor
Mead since he took his office that he
has decided that no more pardons will
be considered until July 1. In all prob
ability the pardon of Henry Creamer
and Paul Underwood will not be con
cidered for some time.
So many applications piled up in
the governor's office that if he consid
ered them as they were received he
would have little time for any other
official business. There are now about
30 applications on file. The decision
of the governor not to consider the
pardon of Underwood for some time
yet, will be a severe blow to the con
vict and his young wife.
Underwood was convicted of man
slaughter and sentenced to 15 years
in the penitentiary. Underwood's
young wife gave birth to a baby, and
as they were exteremely poor the fath.
er took the baby and after wrapping
it in an old blanket, threw it into the
bay at Seattle. The body was recov
ered and the crime was traced to Un
ATLANTIC CITY, N. J.. April 15.—
Coincident with the celebration of the
fortieth birthday of Benjamin Bacha
rach, a leading business man of At
lantic City, the first Osier club has
been formed here. The organization
starts with a score of charter mem
bers, all of whom have reached the
age of 40 within the past year, and a
set of by-laws which places the mem
bers absolutely in the hands of a ma
jority of the club. Each man has
sworn to a belief in the Osier teach
ing and agreed to spread the Osier be
lief both by word and deed.
Mr. Bacharach was elected president
of the society; Lewis Hooper, a rich
real estate dealer, was made vice pres
ident; and Dr. A. D. Zuckaden secre
tary, copies of the by-laws have not
>et been made public, but the objecta
of the club were set forth in an inter
view with the president of teh soci
ety. He said:
•'The formation of the Atlantic City
Osier club must not be taken as a joke,
as we are in deadly earnest in our
strong belief in the wisdom of Osier's
theory as to the retirement of men
who have reached their limit of use
fulness; in fact, my election to the
presidency of the club was due to my
strong defense of Osier. We contend
that the commercial and professional
world is encumbered by men who
should retire in favor of younger men.
and we shall use our best endeavors
to bring this about. Decision as to
whether or not members of the club
have reached the limit of their useful
ness wil be reached by a majority vote.
It will then be decided whether or not
a member must retire from active bus
iness or whether he shal continue in
some light employment. No man un
der 40 can be admitted to membership,
thus making each a candidate for re
tirement whenever the society shall
see fit to decide."
"Will you chloroform members when
they reach the age of 60, according to
the tenets of Dr. Osier?" Mr. Bacha
rach was asked.
"No official action has yet been tak
en on that question," he replied. "As
there is a maximum age limit of 45
years on candidates for membership,
we shall not be called on to decide for
15 years at least."
