A series of vig brous denials of the many charges of in sidious lobby activities of the National Association of Manufacturers, made by jMartin M. MulhaU, confessed X. A. M. lobbyist, enlivened yesterday's session of the senate lobby investigating com mittee. James A. Emery, chief counsel for the K. A. M., flatly repudiated Mul hall's charges that the X. A. M. main tained House employes on its payroll; possessed a secret conference and "in formation" room in the capitol; at tempted to "flx" the House judiciary (committee and unhesitatingly rebuked Members of Congress for not coinciding with X. A. M. views on certain legis lation. Emery admitted that his association (used congressional funds to distribute ! literature in political campaigns and lad also at one time paid J. P. MeMi It'hael, chief page of the House, , $15 monthly to take Mulhall's place in watching committee changes. Emery swore that MulhaU acted as a legislative "information source," it be ing his duty to report the nature and (status of all pending legislation; results bf his interviews with congressmen on legislation of interest to the X. A. M. j the meeting dates of all committees and fither general activities. Mulhnll was re garded by him as "a man of wide politi cal experience, who knew the process of legislation and cad a wide acquaint ance." Emery said other duties required of MulhaU were to make suggestions at (Emery's request that the latter would appreciate the opportunity to appear be We various congressional committees. Emery admitted giving checks to House committee messengers "for many i-our-jtesies extended him." Emery denied Mulhall's story that for mer Representative Jenkins of Wiscon sin had promised that if re-elected he would see that a man satisfactory to the manufacturers would go on the House judiciary committee, i Emery denied that he tried in )908 to have Congressman Malby of Xew York made chairman, succeeding Jenkins. Mulhall testified the manufacturers worked to put Malby in the chairman ship. Emery testified his only activity against Senator Hughes, when a candi date for Congress in 1098, was the dis tribution of campaign literature among manufacturers, giving Hughes' attitude toward labor. He thought it was mailed under the frank of Congressman Little field. Senator Reed produced a letter from Emery to Mjilhall in which Emery wrote of an effort to give practical assistance to Jenkins m a light, fcmery agreed AMERICAN LEAGUE Yesterday's Results.

Japan is afraid that one of her most important naval secrets will fall into the hands of a rival power through the loss of a torpedo from the new battleship Kongo on her trial trip recently off the Irish coast. The Japanese government has offered a reward of $1,000 for the recovery of the torpedo. Ibis is five limes the amount usually offered by the British government in similar circumstances, The explanation, according to the Pall Mall Gazette, is that the torpedoes of the Kongo are unique m construction and that they embody important se cretg of construction. This newspaper says the torpedo has a much longer range and is more deadly than the new est style of British torpedo. It is said to be propelled by engines worked by heated air generated bv a spirit, the composition of which is the discovery of Japanese scientists and unknown to the outside world. The Kongo is ; believed- to be the only battleship in the world carrving such a projectile. A big fishing fleet is searching1 Belfast Lough for the torpedo in the hope of earning the unusually large reward. NEW QUESTIONS FOR BANKS. Comptroller Asks for Details of Loans to Other Banks. Washington, Aug. 13. The acting comptroller of the currency has issued a call on the national banks of the United States for a report of their condition at the close of business on baturday, Aug, 9. In addition to the regular form of re port in use by the department, all banks nave been requested to send in on special forms furnished for that purpose de tailed statements of all money loaned to other banks, as well as all money bor rowed from other banks In the form of rediscounts, bills payable or in any other manner. Banks heretofore have been required to show in the reports of conditions and bills rediscounted for them bv other banks and money borrowed on bills pay able and . other obligations from other banks, but have not been required to show in detail loans made to other banks. The new form will show both sides of such transactions so that one may be checked against the other, and the comptroller will be enabled more easily to determine what sections of the country are in need of additional circu lation at stated periods of the year and what banks accommodate their corre spondents in such sections. In addition the comptroller can more easily ascer tain what banks borrow in order to meet legitimate discounts and varying conditions and what banks should he listed as chronic borrowers; that is, those which borrrow to reloan in norroaJ times.

O'NEAL NAMES CLAYTON To Fill the Vacancy in the Alabama Delegation in U. S. Senate WILL NOT BE ' SEATED, HOWEVER Democrats Worried for Fear They Will Not Have Votes to Pass the Tariff Bill Montgomery, Ala., Aug. 13. Henry D. Clayton, member of Congress from the third Alabama representative district, was named by Gov. O'Xeal yesterday afternoon as United States senator to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Senator Joseph F. Johnston. Clayton left for Washington last night to present his credentials. He will not resign from the House until seated jn the benate. Washington, Aug. 13. Surprise was expressed by the Democratic leaders of the benate, when they learned that Gov. O'Xeal had disregarded their advice and appointed a senator without express au thority by the legislature. Senator Over man said in his opinion Clayton would not be seated. It is feared there will be a contest and thus the Senate may loae the Alabama vote on the tariff bill. Democrats were further worried by the continued absence of Senator Culberson of Texas, on account of serious illness. He is undergoing treatment in Connecti cut, and no word can be communicated to him. SPEEDING-UP THE TARIFF BILL. Progressive Republicans Expected to Support Democratic Measure. Washington, Aug. 13. With the inau guration of longer sessions of the Senate yesterday, the Democrats began thefr long-delayed attempt to speed up the passage of the tariff bill. Instead of convening at noon, the upper house met at 11 o'clock. Democrats were cautioned against consuming any time in discus sion. Even the senators in charge of the several schedules had determined to make no more than absolutely necessary response to the minority's attacks. Beneath the surface everywhere ran the question as to what progressive Re publicans would be won over to the sup port of the bill on the final roll call. That Poindexter, the onlv Progressive in the Senate, would vote for the bill, was agreed on all sides. Whether La Fol lette, under fire from his home friends, and Kenyon determined to kill the alu minum trust, would, be satisfied with oertain amendments to the agricultural schedule and a free aluminum amend ment, was an open question. Another possible recruit was conceded to be Senator Clapp. His protest against the present bill has been less against the rates than the methods by which it was produced. He insists that a satisfactory tariff could have been secured in less time by an open ballot on the floor upon each item, with no caucus rule. But he has not promised to vote against the pending measure. Senator Uronna is thought to be a pos sible supporter, if the farmers are given a few concessions.

A young lady ooe day drove tip to bis studio in ber carriage, which bore ber family crest, and, alighting, sent op ber card. The artist's eye lighted with pleasure. Miss Eleaoor Gray, whose name was on the card, was the most beautiful woman of ber day. When she sppeared at functions, at the opera, driving out, as she passed every bead was turned to took at ber. At the time sbe made this visit to Chidester ber beauty was simply per fect Not a line appeared anywhere on ber face, ber complexion was a most exquisite pink and white, and ber figure was a combination ot ravishing curves. "I bare called," she said, "to ask If you could be Induced to paint my por trait I know It Is a great deal to ask of the most famous living artist but you will, woat yout" Chidester stood gazing at her, wrap ped in admiration of ber beauty, for some time before he replied.

He bad been climbing, bad reached the crest and must begin bis descent For a time be did not realise this, then feared it and at last it fell upon blm like a death stroke. He hunted everywhere for another model that would inspire blm like the last one. He found one equally attractive of its kind, but a different style, a child. He read sto ries of children by Hans Cbristtnn An dersen to fill himself with their Inno cence, then began bis work. It was successful, but It was not bis master piece.

Old residents of Olean some of them not so very old, either remember dis tinctly the time when flocks of wtfi pigeons flew over the then straggling village of Olean In such countless num bers as to almost obscure the very sky, when flock followed flock In such close succession as to partly give the Impression that each was but the sep arated group and companion voyagers of the flock that had but Just passed overhead on swiftly whirring wings. These flocks passed in one long pro cession for days at a time in the -early spring and even for weeks. Thousands and even hundreds of thousands of them. If the reports of those days were to be taken implicitly, nested la the woods of Alton and Big Shanty, a short distance across the Pennsylvania line. All at once these myriad flocks of pigeons ceased to- come disappeared abruptly, mysteriously, and apparently forever. Whence did they go so sud denly and so completely? No one has yet been able to answer that question.
