ESTABLISHED 1877 GERMANY AND RUSSIA ON VERGE OF WAR London, Dec. 4.—Russia has re torted to the "rattling of the German ■word" in the Balkan war tangles. She has declared that she will not admit a repetition of the methods used when Austria occupied Bosnia and Hercegovina. "Such intimidution will frighten nobody," exclaims the Novoc-Vreyma, commenting on the German chancel lors giving prominence to the idea of war. The war parties both In Russia and Austria-llungury seem to hold the public platform for the moment against the peaceably disposed minis ters of those countries. Any untow ard incident or ptovocativc act on the part of Servla, would, in the opinion of diplomats hero. In a moment set Austria-Hungary in motion uml this probably would loosen forces In Bus sia which the government of the Rus sian empire would find itself unable to resist. The Novoe-Vreyraa continues: "History is repeating Itself, but It Is not so easy now to force Kusslnn diplomacy into u faint-hearted re treat." The immediate withdrawal of the vaat Russian deposits in the German banks is advocated in her refusal to adhare to the armistice signed yester day It would uecear-arily throw Bul garia more closely Into the cuibrure of Bervia and give fresh t ncourage men t to the Servian resistance to the European powers, who arc prnctieally unanimous In condemning the Serv ian demands. If Aoatrla-Huagary should attempt as kas been suggested, to employ Rowmsnla to keep Bslgarta quiet In tbs sweat of an Anatrla-Serrlan war. It Is though that such action would only enlarge tho area of conflict and precipitate a general catastrophe. Any Intervention by Roumania, it Is argued, would Inevitably compel Russia to take drastic action on be half of the Slavs In the Balkans. Diplomats realize that the crisis demands Immediate treatment and ef forts to bring a lion t an ambassador ial conference as uqlckly as possible have been renewed as it Is thought that this is the only means of bring ing the necessary pressure Into pllay to extinguish the Incendiary tend ency of the extremists in the var ious countries concerned In the dis pute.

BANKING AND CURRENCY SYSTEM; CAUSES PANICS Washington. Dec. 4.—Strongly urging radical reform of the "un reasoned and unscientific” hanking and currency system of the United States. Franklin McVeagh, secretary of the treasury, freely warns Con gress In his annual report submitted today that the federal government. a« long as the present scheme exists, will be exclusively responsible for the commercial, industrial and so cial disasters which flow from panics and Attack, directly or Indirectly, every home in the nntion. The present system promotes and develops panics and legislation is ur gent, declares Mr. MacVcugh, in out lining his idea or the necessary gen eral provisions of an adequate relief measure. Aside from affording flex ible and elastic currency and reserv es, such a revision, he says, should bring the banks Into more organised co-operation and provide for n cen tral agency through which they could work together, free of political or trust control. According to the estimates of the Treasury Department, the secretary forsecs a deficit of 922.nD6.023. ex clusive of Panama Canal expendi tures, for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1914, the first fiscal year of Pres ident Wilson’s administration. In cluding the Canal expenses, the de ficit is estimated nt 952.780,455. The canal expenditures, he adds, howevr, may be paid under the law from bond sales.

He estimates re ceipts for this year at $711,000,000 and ordinary disbursements at $670,- 800.000. \ In connection with financial re form, Mr. MacVeagh says the people are helpless under existing evils. The present system never permits free action at any time, because its lia bility to sudden constraint and re striction is always a part of the na tion's financial consciousness. • "There never is a time,” continues the secretary of the treasury, “when there is any long look ahead; ex cept when we are In the midst of a panic, and when there is n long look of disaster ahead.

Ryan denied the charge, but ad mitted the union paid several thou sand dollars to O'Donnel, employed lawyers In hi- behalf and conducted a correspondence "to steal the march on them when O'Donnell got out on the first charge." "Why were you and Webb so anx ious to lia\.* O'Donnell escape and why did you use so much of the un ion's funds to help him when the union treasury was Impoverished?" asked Mr Miller "We felt that lie was being perse cuted.

I took no steps to learn the facts," answered Ryan. “Cooley wrote be had fixed things with the court and had hired two wltnooooa to testify fa!>.« !y ho ho would escape Jail Did you take any action about that?" "I did not," Ryan said. Ryan also denied knowledge of any plnnn by Cooley to arrange for ex plosions on non-union Jobs at Hous ton, Texas, and other southern cities.
