AMERICAN BANKERS WIN Further Conferences Will Be Held to Perfect Plan fcr Guaranteeing Cotton Bills of Lading. Now York. An extension from Oc tober I!l to December 31 of the peri od iluring which American cotton bills ot lading wili be accepted in current terms by foreign banks, was announc ed here by Sir Kdwanl H, Hidden, the Knlish broker, who came to this country for tile British and continen tal interests. This course was recommended to the foreign bankers by sir Edward, and. Following the receipt of cable ad vices from London authorizing him to act, he issued a formal statement. This is the lirst fruit of a series of conferences Sir Edward has held here during the last week. The favor with which the plan to have lulls of lading guaranteed or in sured has been received by interior bankers of this countrj Justified Sir Edward, he said, in urging an ex tension of the status quo as probably two months would be required to per fect the project. In granting this ex tension the English bankers reserve the right to renew conferences with the American financiers to devise an other scheme for safeguarding bills of lading in event the guaranty plan proA es impracticable, The British bankers refused to add a word to his statement or explain the couti in plated plan of protecting bills of lading in detail PLAN FOR RAISING MAINE. Spain Is to Be Shown How the Maine Was Wrecked. Boverly, Mass. President Taft linally approved plans for raising the wreck ol the battleship Maine from Havana harbor, which call for the completion of the work on or before the thirteenth anniversary of the de struction of the war vessel, February 15, next. The work is to be done according to plans made by army en gineers, and is to be under the di rection ol an engineer officer. President Taft said that the para mount question in the raising of the Maine is the determining for all time of the cause of the explosion and whether the source of desti action was from the outside or inside the vessel. For this reason he desires that the work shall be retained in the hands of the army engineers and not let out by contract. By direction of the President, Spain has been invited to send a representa tive to Havana to be present during the work of exposing and removing the wreck. WAR ON THE HOOKWORM.
