Special Dispatch to The Tribune.
Chicago, 111., Nov. :;. The gravest
financial problem that ever confronted
the United States, which has been pre
cipitated by thi.s country's support of
the Allies, was secretly discussed at
the Chicago Club tonight by twelve
men associated with the largest finan
cial houses in America.
It is known that the conference re
lated to the financial relations of the
United States with Great Britain,
France and Russia. It is reported
that eves the retention of the gold
standard of money among the four na
tions hangs on the outcome of the
meeting here.
The tremendous events which may
resuit on the decision of these bank
ers in conference here was foreshadow
ed in telegrams received by a big Chi-
-wi tinnnchil house from its ov
nrl- corresnondent. One messa-re I
said: "From reliable sources it has
been learned that the future of the
gold standard depends upon the atti
tude of the bankers in the United.
States in regard to the next British i
loan, the amount of which will be !
$1,000,000,008.
"If this loan is not obtainable with
out England being forced to furnish
collateral, Great Rritain is ready to
form a new pool with France and Rus
sia to send one billion dollars in gold
to the United States.
"The three European nations hesi
tate to sent! any more gold to the
United States, because their note cir
culation is based on their gold reserve.
Hut France and Russia are agreed to
enter into the pool to send the billion
dollars in gold to the United States if
England will agree to demonetize gold.
This is a serious situation for the
United States and demands immediate
action."
The bankers, who assembled here,
refused to discuss the possibility of
the United States on a gold basis, hav
ing to face the three powerful nations
on a silver basis or standard. If the
United States failed to join Great
Britain, France and England and ac
cept the silver money standard, it
would shatter the standing of the Al
lies' securities which have been dis
posed of in the United States.
It has been whispered in financial
circles, both here and in New York for
several weeks that a financial crisis
was about to be precipitated, but it
had been hoped that it could be staved
off.
It is not definitely known what the
Allied securities held in the United
States aggregate, but it is a well
known fact that the bulk of them are
in the East. New York will be hit
hardest if some way to avoid the crisis
is not found.
Chicago bankers fear that a change
from a gold standard of money to a
silver basis would precipitate a critical
situation all over the United States,
but it is hoped by the financiers that
some way out of the crisis will be
found.
An embargo on the shipment of arms
and foodstuffs to the nations now en
gaged in the European war would pre
vent a further loss in this country, if
there is to be a loss, but it would not
bring the present problems any nearer
a solution.
Chicago bankers, and, in fact, the
financial men who are in conference
here, are opposed to England negotiat
ing a billion dollar loan here unless
those countries send gold in that sum
to the United States. One of the bank
ers in the conference is opposed to this
country becoming further involved in
the European struggle, and therefore,
will not consent to approving the loan
now asked.
New York, Nov. 8. A syndicate of
bankers has concluded the negotiations
for an unsecured loan of $50,000,000
to Russia, it was announced tonight.
This is the first unsecured loan placed
in the United States by that govern
ment. It runs for five years and draws
five and one-half per cent.
The firm of J. P. Morgan & Co
handled the loan, which was floated
largely in New York City. It was not
known until tonight that Russia had
made a request for the loan or that
the hankers were considering the nego
tiation of such a sum without col
lateral.
Money Crisis
Wouldn't Affect
Cape Girardeau
An accumulation of gold, unpreced
ented in size, in the 12 U. S. Federal
Re serve Bank?, coupled with a steadily
advancing quotation on the intrinsic
value of silver are fundamental condi
tions existing in this country vhich
will stabilize the value of all securities
and prevent a panic of nation-w ide
scope.
The financial jar that may be causr-d
by a change from gold to silver stan
dard of money by the Entente Allies,
which may be foreshadowed by a con
ference of bankers in Chicago, will not
shatter American business, according
to the statement of a Cape Girardeau
banker, who discussed the situation
last night.
The manner in which foreign so
called war loans are handled in this
country, he said, divides the loan into
so many line parts ultimately, that the
jar will not be the cause of a financial
smash.
Banks have been lo:'th to take the
war loans as investments for the
banks, and most of the war nots have
been taken by individual clients with
money to invest in securities considoj
ed reasonably safe. For that iva. on,
he said, banks will not suffer and ihc
Federal Re serve funds remain inirvt
to weather any assault that may pos
sibly be made upon barl.s of the country-"
In the first place, when gold is pro
nounced the standard of Tverey. as i
the case in this countrr, a certain
n-rasmv of f"ol'l
fixed as a dollar.
In the United States, it is :?.". s grain
of gold that make a gold dollar.
When silver coins are made in this
country, they are made interchange-
able with Zot ('oi,lv' tho st;i,r P '"
the Government.
The silver dollars that wore coined
by the Government up till a .-hort time
ago, contained an amount of silver
which in its raw form would be worth
only HO cents.
In the last ten months, the pri. o of
silver ha? advanced, according to the
statement, and the amount that is used
in making a dollar, now is worth in
stead of 0 cents, 78 to 0 cents. The
quotation on silver was made several
jdays ago when the market was stadilv
advancing.
The Entente Allies have borrowed
money in this country. The have bor
rowed under a gold standard and the
loan has been negotiated through men
in New York known in the financial
world as Investment Rankers and
Brokers. The investment banker is
not a banker who conducts a banking
house in any way similar to any of thr
banks in the Cape.
He has agreed to get the money for
the Allied governments. He has cor
respondents in many cities in this
country and he distributes the loan in
this manner to all parts of this coun
try. His correspondents are usually
brokers and bond houses.
The loan is obtained by the Allied
governments in the form of bonds
which may be sold in any size f rom
$100 up to thousands of dollars. The
payment of the bonds is guaranteed
oy tiie government that is asking to
borrow money. Through the ,Mm,,
there is a direct connection between
the bondholder in this country and the
foreign government.
The bonds that have been issued and
paid for by American people were
made under a gold standard monetary
system, that is, tiie foreign govern
ment promised to make good the face
value of the bond at some time in the
future by payment in their standard
of money, at a time when gold was j I e effect of the American tremend
the standard. ! ou? fc'ou' reserve backing up an indus-
Xow the Allied governments are be- j tria1 capacity as great as ours v. ill
ing forced, apparently, to change their ' rnal this country to swallow the loss
standard of money value from gold to
silver. That puts the owner of a br.ml
in this country- in the position of loser,
for the reason that when his bond is
paid, it will be paid in silver money of
another nation, which will be worth
just what the raw silver in the money
is worth on the market.
Where the American loaned $100 to
the Allies, he would get $7S to $80
back if the price of silver remained
the same as the quotation noted.
When international finance is con
sidered, it is possible to figure the to
tal debt of people in this country to
those in Europe in the same manner
that the European debt to us can be
found. The banker interviewed by The
Tribune, last night said that a recent
statement showing the relative sizes
GARDNER ELECTED,

Special Dispatch to The Tribune.
St. Loins, Xov. 0 (Thursday). Col.
Fred D. Gardner apparently has car
ried Missouri for Governor over Judge
Henry Lamm, his Republican oppon
ent. Gardner will probably have a
lead of lightly more than 10.000 when
the total vote is counted.
Judge Lamm's majority here was
from 12,000 to ir,0(,0 less than he was
expected to poil. Hadley earned St.

of Wanrnton. Hackmanu receive.! a
majority of 241 in St. Louis over
his opponent. This was the largest
majority sriven to any candidnto in St.

None of the war bonds iiave been
sold to persons living in the Cape, the
banker said. They have been pur
chased by persons having money which
they have found hard to invest at as
good an interest rate as is offered on
the war bond. That means they have
settled in the East to a great extent.
On one Ang'o-Frrnch loan of r00
millions, floated by J. P. Morgan and
others, the St. Louis bond houses were
asked to take a part of the bonds and
place them for P3!e. The St. Louis
banks took very small blocks of them
and of the total amount distributed in
St. Louis it was in blocks of S500 to
$1000.
HEAR RELATIVES ARE
STARVING IN GREECE
Cape Shoe Shine Man Gets
Letter From Home Can't
Buy Bread.
That their relatives fathers, sis
ters and brothers in the central part
of Greece are in danger of starvation
on account of the Allies having taken
charge of their country, was learned
in the Cape by Demetreos Demetroulis
and Arestedes Kotsiakis, two Greeks
who conduct the shoe shine parlor on
Main street. - ,
The supply of bread stuffs for the
interior of Greece have been cut olf
by the Allies and the farmers are un
able to dispose of their natural prod
ucts of the soil, namely, wine, fruits
of all kinds.
Demetroulis received a letter from
his father last week in which the lat
ter said that conditions in his vicinity
J were appalling. Women and children

Demetroulis' father is a well-to-do
grocer and butcher near Athens. He
likewise has a sister living there, and
a brother-in-law died two years ago.
Kotsiakis, who has been in this coun
try for the last seven yfrs, came from
I the count of Olebea, Greece, a place
about a day's journey from Athens.
He has a brother and sister living
there, who are unprotected, he said.
Kotsiakis' father was a wealthy land
owner, and when he died, he left his
estate of :;"." acres of rich prairie land
I in trust of his son. An uncie was to
take care of the estate until
young
Kotsiakis reached his majoritv.
Kotsiakis, when ho decided to leave
home, obtained about $2."0 from his

SEED CORN TO BE
HIGH IN SPRING
i County Expert Advises (Jrowers
to Select Seed This
Fall.
Ry C. M. McWilliams.
With present prices offered for corn
and the short crop being harvested it
is certain that seed corn next spring
will be scarce and high priced.
Every corn grower who has good
corn should select his seed thi.s fall
j and as much additional as he cares
to.
The excess above home requirements
will sell readily at a good figure, but
by far the most important is the seed
for home planting. One bushel of
good corn can safely he estimated to
plant eight acres, and on the average
farm, selecting the seed is not a task
that requires a great dea lof time. No
work will yield a larger return for the
I time spent. Furthermore, corn select
ed in the fall can be given a thorough
inspection that is impossible to give
it if seed is picked from the crib.
Tiie horse demonstration which in
cluded some phases of horse produc
tion, conformation, and common un
soundnesses, was attended by 25 farm
ers. The interest shown in the sub
ject was good, and it was the general
impression of those present that we
need more heavy mares in this section
and that a common mistake in the
phase has been ir partonizing unsound
stallions that vi:v of no particular

HORSE FIGHTS 5
MINUTES FOR LIFE
Animal Forced Into River at
Levee Could Not Get Release
From Harness.
While a crowd of several scores of
men and women, all powerless to aid,
looked on, one of the horses of the
team that was pushed into the river
yesterday afternoon at the foot of
Themis street made a gallant fight for
his life that ended in defeat.
Recause he was held in the water by
the harness that throttled his neck
and was unable to liberate himself
from his companion horse and the
wagon to which he had been hitched,
the animal gradually was forced be
neath the water and was drowned.
The companion horse was drowned
immediately after going into the water
and was unable to put up the battle
for more than five minutes that one
of the animals did.
Th team that was drownetl belong
ed to the City Transfer and Livery
Company and was being driven by Jim
Mintos. Minton had placed a load of
about HO sacks of beans and other
freight on his wagon which had been
left on the wharf for the Meyer-Albert
Grocery Co.
He had driven the team south on the
levee gradually working the load to
the top of the incline of the rock
levee. At the water gauge, one of the
horses fell and began sliding. In some
manner, the team was directed down
hill and after the heavily loaded wagon
got behind the team, it forced the
horses to the water in spite of efforts
made by Minton to wheel the horses
away from the river.
As the outfit got close to the levee
jump-off wall, Minton leaped from the
wagon, when he had broken one of the
reins in his attempts to wheel the
horses. The animal that fell never
was i.ble to rise to its feet and both
animals went over the wall into the
river headfirst with the wagon after
them.
The beans on the wagon which were
valued at between $250 and $H00, went
to the bottom of the river and the
horses' struggle for life ensued.
After the death of the animals,. their
bodies were hauled from the river. The
team was valued at S250 to $300. The
wagon which was lost wa3 almost nevr.
OFFICER KNOCKS OUT
MAN AT WARD RALLY
Talley Swats William Kocber on
Head as lie Cries for
Hughes.
William Kocher, a blacksmith and a
Republican, last night was knocked
down by Patrolman George Talley
while "Rob" Ward was delivering a
Democratic speech on peace at the
Courthouse Park. Kocher was stand
ing at the edge of the crowd which
was attending the Democratic rally
when he was struck.
Kocher, after his head had been sew
ed up by a physician and he had gone
to hi.s home, deviared that he was hit
because he is a Republican rather than
a Democrat.
He went to the combined rallies at
the Courthouse and in the park and
was unable to get inside the Common
Pleas Court room to hear the speech
of Judge James A. Finch. He stood
outside to listen along with several
other Republicans, to the address of
Mr. Wrard.
During the intervals when there was
Democratic applause, Kocher and some
of his companions cheered for their
candidate, Hughes.
Patrolman Talley declared that his
attention to Kocher first was called by
Mercer D. Wilson who asked Kocher
to get into the band-wagon or "get
out."
Kocher had been loud among those
favoring Hughes, Talley said and, he
said, as Mr. Wilson asked the former
to move away, Kocher turned upon him
and uttered an ath in the presence of
some women. Talley said he there
upon took hold of Kocher's arm to
force him to leave.
The tussle became one over Talley's
elub. the patrolman said, and he wrest
ed it free of Kocher's grasp, he said,
and struck the man opposing him.
Kocher went down with a cut on the
head that required seven stitches to
close. Talley then took him over to
the police station, where he was re
leased by Talley and Chief Kutson, al
so a Democrat and candidate for sher
iff, without a charge having been
placed against him.
Kocher last night denied that he
had created any disturbance, but had
been knocked down without a strug
gle. Last night J. Henry Caruthers,
prosecuting attorney, said he had
heard that a warrant might be asked
against the police officer and City
Councilman Fowler said that his dis
missal nnYht result.
THIEVES PILLAGE
' IN SCOTT COUNTY
Chicken Coops Raided and Pul
lets Taken-$300 Horse
Stolen at Chaffee.
A band of chicken and horse thieves
which has been raiding stables and hen
coops in various section of Scott Coun
ty recently, has aroused the farmers.
Adam Felter, who lives in Kelso, re
ports that his chicken house has been
robbed three times during the past
month.
One night about two weeks ago,
while his wife was locking the build
ing, a man leaped out of the door,
bowled Mrs. Felter over and the scaled
a fence and disappeared. Had he been
a minute later, he would have been
locked up with the chickens.
Mr. Felter then set a blank cart
ridge in the lock, which would auto
matically explode the moment the
door was tampered with. He was sur
prised the next morning to find that
the cartridge had been expleded and
then the thief carted away 50 hens.
That night he loaded a double-barreled
shotgun and attached it to the
door in such a" manner that an at
tempt to open the door would explode
both barrels of the weapon. Since then
he has not been troubled with chicken
thieves.
Joe Diebold, the Kelso miller, also
has reproted a number of robberies at
his hen house. Thieves have carted
away more than one hundred of his
fancy poultry.
Louis Peppercorn of Chaffee has just
recovered his $.'!00 mare which was
stolen from his stable three weeks ago.
He offered a reward for her return and
early last week he received a message
from a man in Tennessee, who said a
horse answering the description of the
animal stolen from Peppercorn had
been left at his home. Mr. Teppercorn
went to Tennessee and found the horse
was the one that had been taken from
his barn. He had offered a reward of
$:00 and upon payment of the sum. the
hrse was turned over to him.
Four Kelso boys, while coon hunting
one night last week, found a party
of thieves holding a chicken stew
in the woods. The four coon hunters
were: Fritz and Andrew Luz and Leo
and John Heisserer. When the chicken
thieves saw the coon hunters, they
fled. The boys went up to the scene,
found three hens cooked and beside
the boiling pot was a loaf of fresh
bread and some salt and pepper. Aft
er eating the feast that had been pre
pared for the chicken thieves, the
hunters went on their way.
DORMITZER DRIVES
AUTO OVER FARMER
Kelso Man's Ankle is Crushed
and Leg May Have to be
Amputated.
Frank Seyer, 60 years old, who was
run down by an automobile driven by
Stanley N. Dormitzer of thi city near
Kelso, Friday afternoon, was reported
to be in a serious condition at his home
at Kelso yesterday afternoon.
The wheel of the machine passed
over his right leg, crashing the bone
just above the ankle. The accident was
said to have been unavoidable by wit
nesses. Louis Dohogne had just pass
ed the scene, and Dormitzer's car was
following closely behind.
Seyer, who was walking towara Kel
so with Frank Westrick, did not notice
Dormitzer's car, and stepped in front
of the machine. He was knocked
down and the front wheel of the auto
passed over his leg. Dormitzer stop
ped his car before the rear wheel could
reach the victim.
After realizing that Seyer was badly
hurt, he placed him in his car and
drove hurriedly to Kelso, where Dor
mitzer summoned Dr. Rodenmayer and
another physician from Illmo. They
set the limb, but because of the fact
that the bone had been crushed and
shattered, the injury is not improving.
It was stated yesterday that blood
poisoning was developing and it was
feared that the leg would have to be
amputated at the knee in order to save
Seyer's life.
Dormitzer said last night that his
car was moving very slowly and that
the accident could not have been avoid
ed. He was following Mr. Dohogne's
car, but Seyer failed to see him. When
Seyer stepped in front of his car, Dor
mitzer shouted to him, but it was too
late. He applied the emergency brake,
but the front wheel passed over the
righ leg.
Because of his age, the attending
physicians are afraid that Seyer will
not recover. He lives just on the out.

KELLY IS WINNER
OVER E. D. HAYS
Scott and Mississippi Countie
Defeat G. O. P. Candidate
by 40.
Frank P. Kelly was re-elected Judge
of the Circuit Court over Edward D.
Hays yesterday by a majority of ap
proximately 400 votes. While Judge
Hays gained about 400 votes in this
county over Judge Kelly, the latter
swept both Scott and Mississippi
counties.
Four years ago. when these two can
didates were pitted against, each other.
Judge Hays carried Scott County, but
he received a heavy Socialist vote.
This strength has gone back to the
Democratic party, thp Demot-rats an
nounced last night, and Judge Kelly
carried the county by probably 4'0,
not more.
Mississippi County also piled up a
Democratic majority of from 40' to
500 votes, and the total of Scott and
Mississippi will easily overcome the
lead of Judge Hays in Cape Girardeau
County. According to the incomplete
report from Cape County, Judge Hays
defeated his opponent in the county.
by f00 or slightly over that figure.
which was about 400 more votes than
he polled here four years ago.
Congressman Joseph J. Russell at
his home in Charleston last night
claimed to have been re-elected by
about 1000 votes over David W. Hill
of Poplar Bluff. Mr. Kill, however,
says the returns that reached him lru-t
night indicated that he had carried the
district.
Mr. Russell said he had carried
Dunklin County by more than 1000
over Hill and had received his usual,
lead in all of the other Democratic
counties. ""
Hill ran better in Cape Girardeau
County than the Democrats had ex
pected he would, obtaining a majority
about twice as large as was given fo
Tom Rrown two years ago. Mr. Hill
said his Rutler County vote v.ou'd
overcome the Russell majority . i
Dunklin County. Rut as less than one
half of the counties in the dUtrict v.e -e
heard from last night, nothing d--f;r'e
could be obtained.
