Congress Completes Action
on Emergency Currency
Wheat Active
' Washington, Aug. 5. The American
financial world has calmly settled down
ready to meet any crisis that may arise.
Probably never in the history of the Unit
ed States have so many and such varied
measures been put into force as during
the past forty-eight hours. As a result
the financial situation is regarded as
easy and sound. Banks of all large
cities through the country are issuing
clearing house certificate to fur
nish an additional medium of circu
lation In settlement of transactions
among banks. Many millions of dolars
of emergency currency, provided for by
the Aldrich-Vreeland law have, been
ghjpped to New York and other financial
centers. Savings banks and private
banking institutions in many cities have
in effect the sixty days clause. The
enormous outflow of gold to Europe is
believed to have been stopped effectual
ly.' All stock exchanges continue closed
and the date for resuming business still
is uncertain. England is said to have
ordered all Australian meat sent for uo
in case of war and prices are likely to
advance in this country . American
firms having London .branches are
swamped with orders for canned meat,
and prices have gone up ten to thirty
per cent, within a few days.
COMMONS VOTES $525,000,000 FUND.
Other Bills Passed in Fjve Minutes
Without Dissenting Vote.
London, Aug. 5. The House of Com
mons yesterday voted $525,000,000 for
emergency purposes and passed several
bills' in five minutes without a dissent
ing vote.
$1,250,000,000 FOR EMERGENCY.
Amendment to Aldrich-Vreeland Act Is
Passed by House and Senate.'
Washington, Aug. 5. The way is now
practically cleared to the issue of $L
250,000,000 in emergency circulation
under the Aldrich-Vreeland act.
The Senate and House adopted the
conference report on the measure to
mend the Aldrich-Vreeland act. As the
measure is amended it permits the issue
of emergency notes to 125 per cent of
the unimpaired capital and surplus of
national banks and state banks that

A 5 per cent gold reserve is required.
Senator Bristow criticised the measure
as amended. He said the amount of cur
rency which could be issued was too
large.
. ITALIAN ARMY MOBILIZED.
Italy Fearful of Revolution If She Joins
Austria.
Rome, Aug. 5. The Italian army is
mobilized. Details are suppressed by
the censor, but it is certain that both
the army and navy are now on a com
plete war footing. Germany continues
tier efforts to get the government to; re
consider its declaration . of neutrality,,
but so far these appeals have been in
vain. It is admitted that for the gov
ernment to go to war now to help Ger
many and Austria, with the country
aflame with mewt bitter and anti-Austrian
feelimr, would mean an immediate
revolution in which the loyalty of tlw
army would be submitted to an aimoi
impossible test. 1
Franconia to Sail.
Boston, Aug. 5. Orders for the
Cunard liner Franconia to sail for Liver
pool early to-dny were received from
Liverpool yesterday. The steamer was
to have sailed Monday, but her depart
ure was delayed as a result of the Euro
pean crisis. The Franconia will carry a
small number of passengers.
AMERICA ACTING FOR EUROPE.
Our Diplomats Take Over Interests of
Both Germany and France.
Washington, Aug. 3. The United
States embassy in Paris to look after
German interests in France and after
French interests in Austria. Senator
MeCumber yesterday offered a resolu
tion directing the president to offer his
services in mediation or arbitration. The
resolution to-morrow will come before
the Senate for consideration. Japan offi
cially declares she. may join the war if
England lie involved in the far east. A
German "White Rook" throws responsi
bility for war on Russia and France. The
steamer Kronprinzessin Cecil ie of the
Hamburg-American line, which arrived
at Falmouth, should not be confused
with the Kronprinzessin Gecilie of the
Xorth German Lloyd treasureship which
arrived at Bar Harbor, Me., yesterday.

Martin Walsh, a brother of Big Ed
Walsh of the White Sox, is causing a
big sensation in the Eastern association
this season. He is now leading the

Slim Sallee, the star pitcher ot tne
st oiiis Cards, is often known as the
rofnrmpH Ruhe Waddell. When Sallee
joined the Cards he did not take any in
terest in the game and was only around
the park to draw his wages. Ever since
joining the Cards, Sallee has been rec
ognized as a Ditcher of ability and one
of the best in the league. Since his mar
riage Sallee is a man ot responsiouuy
and one of the hardest workers in the
league. He has probably been used more
this season than, any pitcner in ine

ures of the Boston management are
greater now than ever before in the his

Fenway park last !aturciay was ma
largest that ever turned out for a Bos
ton National league game.
The Maekmen will never be headed for
championship honors in the American
league unless many of their stars are
seriously crippled. It is not to be doubt
ed that Mack lias one of the strongest

the merfts of this phase of the game the
Maekmen will win the pennant.
A month ago the Braves startled th
baseball world with a wonderful sprint
from the low depths of eighth position
up into first division. The Highlanders
are now creating a sensation in the
American league and bid fair to secure
a good rating before the season is closed.
