CLAIMS CREW TWENTY-TWO MEN GO DOWN IN RAGING STORM ON TREACH EROUS LAKE SUPERIOR/* BUT ONE LIVES TO TELL STEAMER CYPRUS IS TOSSED ABOUT UPON THE WAVES, THEN DASHED TO PIECES. Buult 8lf„ Mario, Mich. —Bound from ,-tho head of the lake* on the second trip ah* has made Mince beinic launched at Lorain. Ohio, on August 17th laat, the line at eel freighter Cy prua, 440 feet long. owned by the I,ack- Nwanna TranMi>ortailon Company, foundered October 13th in Ijiko Bui*c •rlor, off Deer Park, taking down with a 'her twenty-two member* of the crew. P .Second Mate C. J. Pitt, waahed unhurt* lurhcd to a life raft, la the only perwjn .left alive of the ship's people, and hi* condition la ao critical alncc he waa found on the beach he hua only been able to gasp out the name of the bunken ahlp and the fact thut twenty two Uvea were loat. Pitt la suffering front the dreadful exposure In the Icy water* of Ijike Su perior. in addition to the buffeting he received from the bnukera. Until he haa recovered sufficiently to lalk the atory of the wreck and the exact cauae of tho atout ateel ahlp fouudcriug will not be definitely known. Deer Park la about thirty ntliea aouth of Grand Marala on the abort- of laki> at: per lor. Several bodlea from the wreck have waahed ashore and two are known to be thoae of the Aral mate and watchman. Sault Btc. Marie. Mich.—Recovering conaclouaneaa after hour* of ronatant nursing. the accond mate of the Cy prua gave a graphic account of the laat momenta of the crew ou board the 111-fated veaael. The mate aald that the Cyprua waa making fairly good weather In the norm, when auddenly the cargo ahifted. giving the craft a heavy llat. Thia waa •bout 7 p. m.. when the veaael waa off Deer Park, in the regular courae of veaaela bound up and down. Water began pouring In the hatche*. tnd a panic enaued. many of the crew putting on life preaervem. Captain Huytck. however, felt confident that he TUld reach ahelter behind Whlteflah Point, and the boat* were not lowered, ‘loth engine and pumps were working, •nd the crew felt sure the vessel would sot sink without warning. Hut suddenly the big freighter rolled aver on her aide and almost Instantly B plunged to the bottom. When the vea <cl rolled over, the first and aecond nates, a watchman and wheelman were close to a life raft, which they -tit loose and cuat off In time to escape he whlrtpoe! caused by the Cyprus. Until 2 a. m. the four men clung to heir frail support while the wave* I rove them toward shore. Five times n the angry surf the raft waa upset. :ho men each time having »o fight the -loary undertow for their Uvea. Kach *lght weakened the benumbed and din noartened sailor* and after the fifth Sattl<* with the aurf only one of the luartet remained upon the raft. The next time the raft waa caught jp by the surf It was thrown upon the Inach. Pitt hnd Just strength enough •eft to crawl out of reach of the waves in-fore he fell exhausted where he was •ater found by the patrol of the life saving station. The vessel lies In nineteen fathoms of water, and those who were caught In the vessel will probably never lie heard from. Nine bodies In all have l*een recovered. There seems now to bo little doubt thnt the sinking of the Cyprua was due directly to the failure of the captain and crew of the wrecked veascl to cover the hatches with can vas designed for that purpose. The atory of the second mate, Pitt, confirms largely the theory of loss given out to day by Captain llnrbotUe of the Pitta burg Steamship Company's steamer Stephenson, the Inst vessel to sight the Cyprus before she sank. This means that the Cyprus took In no much water through her uncovered £ hatches that her pumps were unable to ® curry It off. A Rain of Quail. Odesaa.—Tho town of Nlcolalsff has suffered from ft plague of quail. More than 10.000 birds, dead and alive were harvested In the town and suburbs nr ter a thunderstorm of exceptional vlo ° While the town waa being Illum inated by vivid lightning flashes, quail, dead or alive, were observed falling helplessly and fluttering In nearly ev ery at reet and courtyard. Men. women and children Immediately became ob livious to the deluge and the danger of being struck by lightning. Even the d roach ky drivers abandoned their horses to Join In the unturned skirts of their long gaberdines. The unusual violence of the storm must have beaten up In n myriad flock tho great numbers of quail that haunt the marshy and reedy reaches about the confluence of the Iloug and the Ingul, which make a peninsula of Nlco laleff. The birds were evidently ex hausted by their enforced fl ght. and many of them wore apparently killed by the lightning. Pioneer Crosses Divide.

Reserves In New York Banka Greater Than Legal Requirements. New York.—Tho statement of clear ing house bank* for the week shows .hat the hanks held f4.GGS.4GO more than legal reserve requirements. This la an Increaae of 92.007.37 Gus com pared with last week. The statement followa: Loans, f 1,083,041,900, a decrease of 9G.G60.500. Deposits, f 1.020.047.800, a decrease of 910.G5G.G00. Circulation. 991.001,800, an litcreaeo of 9344.000. l<egal tenders. 9G2.G08.C00, a de crease of 9G,998.t»00. Specie, 9198.GG8.800, an increase of 91,342.100.

The Financier will say: Laat week's official statement of the New York associated hanks, as was ex pected. waa an Impiovement conipured with the exhibit of the previous week. Though the cash decreased, the loss thereof closely agreed with that which was estimated upon the baals of the traceable movements of money during the week. The tequlred reserve was reduced by quite an Important amount through a decrease In deposits and the result showed a gain In surplus reserve by a comparatively substantial sum. The cash loss as officially disclosed by the atatement waa 9656,500. General deposits fell off 910.CGG.600. This amount, however, waa greater by 4 1-3 millions than the turn of contraction In loana und the loss of caah. and therefore the atatement made an unusually bad proof. The re quired reserve was reduced 32.663,875. deducting from which the loss of caah as above left 92.007.376 as the Incrcua** In surplus reserve to 94.CGG.G00. Com puted upon the basis of deposits, less thoae of 933.497.G00 public funds, which It may be observed, were augmented by 9972.000 during the week, the sur plus Is 913.027.360. Loana were con tracted by 95.G65.600, reflecting liqui dations of speculative accounts as the result of the general decline In the stock market. It ‘* noteworthy that loana are now greater than depoalts by 67 1-3 millions, or the maximum of the year; In 1906 such maximum waa 624 millions In December. “Say I Just Dla.“ Denver.—Heartsick because Mlaa Katie Wanalk. pretty American girl of Salt laike City, upon whom hit 1* aald to have squandered every cent he earned the laat three years, failed to answer his last letter. 1.

As the popula tion nnd w*enlth Increased so has the tendency for travel, which Is today one of the characteristics of the nation. The American tourist Is a familiar sight at home and abroad. In the search for health and pleasure, for the beautiful and unique, he has gone from Maine to California, and even abroad. However, there In an Inherent desire to "sec America first.” There nr* ninny spots In our own country, and In picturesque Mexico, adjoining on the south, some of them off the henten track, not now well known to the great army of tourists, especially those In st arch of a warm and more equable climate during the winter months, which are daily Increasing in popular favor.
