STRONG, HEALTHY AND FULL OF VIGOR AT 104. SIXTY-FIVE GRANDCHILDREN LIVING AHD MARRIED. Mr. Ralph Bullock of Brooklyn, N. YM Who is in His 105th Year, ays Ho is as Young: and Active as Any of His Grand childrenHe Weighs 176 Pounds, and His Only Medicine is DUFFY'S PUrFsUJALT WHISKEY "T always fond of life," said Mr. Bullock to a reporter 1it evening.

Duffy Malt Whiskey Co.. Rochester, N T. 'evening at which the president was the . principal speaker. Speeches were also msde by M. Cambon, 'Plr Michael Herbert, Prince Henry of Pless, Mr. Heckmann, vice president of the Ber lin Chamber of Commerce. W. P. Wood, I president of the London Corn Trade asso ciation, and M. Hugot, representing the 'French Chamber of Commerce. President Roosevelt said: We have passed that stage of national .development when depreciation of other '.people la felt to be a tribute to our own. ,we watch the growth and prosperity of other nations, not with hatred or Jealousy Jbut with sincere and friendly good will. 1 think I can safely say that we have shown by our attitude toward Cuba and t'hlna that as regards weaker powers our lesire Is that they may be able to stand alone. If they will only ahow themselves willing to deal honestly and fairly with .the rest of mankind. With the great pow ers of the world we desire no rivalry that its not honorable to both parties. We be lieve that the trend of the modern spirit Is ever stronger toward peace, not war; toward friendship, not hostility, as the normal International attitude. And remem ber, we ahall be a potent factor for peace .largely In proportion to the way we make It evident that our attitude Is due not to weakness, but to a genuine repugnance to 'wrong doing. The voice of the weakling 'or the craven counta for nothing when he clamors for peace, but the voice of the tut mtn armed Is potent. We need to eep in a condition of preparedness, espe cially as regards our navy, not because we. want war, but because we desire to stand with those whose plea for peace Is listened to with respectful attention. Important though It Is that we should have peace abroad, It la even more Impor tant St home. You, to whose efforts we owe so much of our Industrial well being, can be Influential In helping toward that Industrial peace which can obtain In so ciety only when In their various relations employer and employed, alike, show not merely Insistence each upon his own rights but alan regard for the rights of others, and a full acknowledgment of the Interests of the third party the public. It Is no easy matter to work out a sys tem which shall minimise that Jarring and clashing of Interests In the Industrial world which causes so much Individual Irritation and suffering st the present day and which at times threatena baneful consequences to large portions of the body politic. But the Importance of the problem cannot be over estimated, and it deserves to receive the careful thought of all. No patent remedy can be devised for the solution of these problems, but we may rest assured that they can only be solved If we employ certain old-time virtues and trive to keep out aome of the most fa miliar and undesirable traits to which mankind haa owed untold degradation and suffering throughout the ages. Arrogance, suspicion, brutal envy of the Well-to-do. brutal Indifference toward those who are rot well-to-do. the hard refusal to , con alder the rights of others, the foolish re fusal to consider the limits of beneficent action, the bas appeal to the spirit of selfish greed, whether tt take the form of plunder of the unfortunate or of oppression of the unfortunate from these and from all kindred vices this nation must he kept free If It la to remain in its present posi tion In the forefront of the peoples of mankind. On the other band, good will come If we arm with the old homely vir tue: If we show we are cool of head and kindly of heart; If we show by deeds snd words our knowledge thst in such a gov ernment as ours each must be In very truth his brother's keeper. The Chamber of Commerce. It Is no Idle boast to say. atands In a pre-eminent de gree for those qualities which make the suocessful merchant, whose success Is won In wsys honorable to himself snd beneficial to his fellows. There are different klnda of success. The success that brlnga with It the seared aoul, the success which is achieved by greed and cunning, the suc cess which makes honest men uneasy or indignant in its presence. Then there is the success which comes as the reward of keen Insight, of sagacity, of resolution, of address, combined with unflinching rec titude of behavior, public and private. The first kind of success may. in a sense, and a poor sense st that, benefit the indi vidual, but it la always and necessarily a curse to the community, whereaa the man who Wins the second kind becomes a bene ficiary to the whole commonwealth. Throughout Ita history the chamber of Commerce haa atood for this second and higher kind of success. Ft Is therefore fitting thst I should eome her ss ths chief executive of the nation to wish you well in your new home; for you belong not merely to the city, not merely to the state, but to all the country, and you stand high among the great fac tors In building up that marvelous pros perity which the entire country now en joys. The continuance of this prosperity depends In no small measure upon your sanity and common aense. upon the way Iq which you combine energy In action Df TOM CR,U,V' InsUntly, Haa.!

I cannot say too much In favor of Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey, which Is In deed a blessing to old people and Invalids. I know It has prolonged my life many years." Mr. Bullock's wife died twenty years ago, snd ha Is living with one of his grandchil dren. 81xty-fla grandchildren are mar ried, and they are all strong and healthy. His descendants who live In Fort Hamilton, Hrooklyn and Manhattan are the Mc Donald, Watts, Hurst, Bullock and Clark families. The health snd vigor of Mr. Bullock's children and grandchildren show that their father thought of his descendants and kept his constitution strong and vigorous with a pure stimulant and tonic, leaving all kinds woman; she should keep hereof healthy with conservative refusal to take part In the reckless gambling which is so often bred by, and which so inevitably puts an end to, prosperity. We look forward with confident hope to what you will do in the future, and it is, therefore, with Minority that I bid you Godspeed this evening snd wish for vnn. in the name of the nation, a career of ever-incrcuHius; nonor ana usefulness.

CHEERING EXTENDS TO THE STREETS More Than a Thousand Women Fill the Court Room to Listen to (losing Arguments in the Case. NEW YORK, Nov. 11. The Molineux Jury was brought Into court at 3:35. At the same time Molineux was tsken from the Tombs Into the court and District Attorney Jerome was summoned. On his arrival the court room was locked and no one was al lowed to enter or leave It. The Jury returned a verdict of not guilty. The Jury remained out Just twenty-flvo minutes. When the foreman announced the verdict of acquittal there was much ftp plsuse and the cheering extended to the crowd waiting outside in the corridors and on tbe streets. Hiring of Letter Box. The prosecution took up the matter of the letter boxes and declared the hiring of the Koch box In Cornish's name was an act of hostility to Cornish. Talking of Koch, who sold to a newspaper an Identification of Molineux as a man who had talked to him on December 17, 1898, about hiring a letter box, Mr, Osborne said hs would not himself Insult the Jury by asking con viction upon such evidence. .The assistant district attorney dwelt at some length on tbe talk Molineux had with Helles before Heiles wrote to Stearns & Co. bout Harpster and demanded: Doea not that show hostility toward Harpster? Molineux had nothing against Harpster except his friendship for Cornish ana yet ne iriea to oo mm me greatexi harm he couid, deprive him of his Job. If he would go so far against Harpster, what would he not do to Cornish? Mr. Osborne began to talk about the Bar net letters. "The man mho wrote those Cornish let ters had the Unmet rase in mind," he said, when ex-Governor Black Interrupted with an objection which Justice Lambert sus tained. Mr. Osborne, however, declared he was well within the evidence and the court per mitted him to proceed. Motive of Mollneus. "This defendant snd Barnet," Mr. Os borne continued, "were friends living near each other on the same floor of the Knick erbocker Athletic club. They were paying attention to the same woman. She re jected Molineux. Barnet died and eight days later Molineux bought for tbe woman an engagement ring. The wedding was very sudden." Mr. Osborne took up the Burns, Cornish and Barnet letters, the first two asking for certain remedies and, the third for a "mar riage guide," and declared that the envel ope matched the paper of the Cornish let ter and that the wording of the conceded Burns letter was Identical with the word ing of the Cornish letter. "This case," counsel said In concluding his talk on the handwriting, "does not de pend upon any witnesses who may lie, but on the common sense and Intelligence of the Jury. Ex-Governor Black said In de fining circumstantial evidence that every circumstance must point to the one man as the magnetic needle polnta to tbe pole. Every circumstance In this case points to Molineux." ' Asks for Conviction. Mr.' Osborne in his peroration pointed out again the circumstances upon which he re lied for a conviction, turning at each men tion of Mollncux's name to point his linger at the defendant. Molineux aat unmoved at the arraign ment, but attentive to every word of It. Not so with his father. The old general was visibly affected by the words of tho prosecuting officer and Cecil Molineux, the prisoner's brother, was very nervous. In tils concluding words Mr. Osborne begged the Jury not to let their feelings run away with their Judgment and not to refuse to convict through timidity. It was paat noon when Mr. Osborne was through and then Justice Lambert suspended proceedings until 1:15 o'clock. Charge of the Judge. At the afternoon session Justice Lambert delivered his charge. Katherine J. Adams died Decem ber 28. 18SS, snd the defendant is eharg-d with the responsibility for her desth. The defendant may be convicted. If you think the evidence adequate of murder in the first degree, or rf you think well of murder in the second degree or of manslsughter in the first degree or of manslaughter in the second degree. Justice Lambert read from tbe statutes the definition of tbe various degrees of homicide, laying stress on the necessity of deliberation and premeditation to constitute murder in the first degree. It is contended here by the people thst If this defendant is found guilty he will be found guilty of murder in the first degree. The defendant by his counsel has made no argument In this regard, but you are required to consider those things In reaching your decision. . The defendant Is presumed to be Inno cent until the evidence shows his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. The burden of guilt never shifts. It Is with the state to prove guilt and not with the de fendant to prove Innocence. It is not necessary to Impart to the Jury the legal definition of a reasonable doubt. If Tils guilt has not been shown to you beyond a reasonable doubt you must acquit him. A reasonable doubt should be actual and substantial and not founded on a mere possibility. HERR1CK TALKS TO BANKERS (Continued from First Page.) could circulate from the Atlantic to the Pacific and from the lakes to the gulf. W. Barret Rldgely, comptroller of tha currency, followed with an earnest appeal for a more elastic currency. He said In part: nidgley Hints at Dangers, Business In the United Statea and more particularly financial and banking opera tions are in danger from an excess of busi ness and lack of machinery and facilities for conducting it. It is becoming more and snore apparent that there must be some curtailment of operations or increase, in fa cilities If we would avoid serious trouble. If not disaster. For several years there has been a steady and enormous Increase In the volume of all kinds of business which has necessarily produced a very large expan sion. The clearing house transactions have increased from M.OuoOjO.OU) In 18i7 to 1)14. OhO.ouu.wo In li)i, an Increase of (oO,000,OUO,. UW. From 1892 to 11 Individual deposits In creased from J4.s,0uo.0u0 to W,Us2,ijO.jO. Ioans increased from t4.337.OUO,0Xi to 17. li. Ouu.OUO. The item of due from other banks increased from ftiM.Ouo.OuO to fl. 661.000, uuO, a total of ISri8.Ouu.0Ou. The cash on hand in creased I2o3.0u0.0liu dollars, or 43 per cent. Ws now find ourselves embarrassed by the volume of traffic. With aJI the machinery of exchange strained to keep up the pres ent rate, and with every channel swol len to the full with the rushing tide, the slightest disarrangement spreads at ones and la vary far-rv4chlng in its effects. In tha present condition there is not a suffi cient factor of safety and there Is danger of the strain exceeding the limit of elas ticity if it doea not reach the point of ul timate rupture. It muat be conceded that the Improvement In bualneao and general revival of pros perity haa been baaed on the souude.t fundamental conditions. The agricultural. Industrial and commercial conditions have Justified and produced It all. Hut In apite of this, the banking and financial situation Is looked upon with con siderable apprehension. We csnnot dla- 8ulse tha fact that with reserves running own. not only In tha reserve cities, but In all tha banks of the country, the situa tion is serious and requires close attention and careful handling. Now is the time for caution and care In oanx management. It I In times such aa we have been having for severs 1 years that banks get Into trouble, What becomes Ister a bad line of crsdlts Is apt to be made in prosperous years, not whan times ara dull and business bad. One trials Is Past. We ssw after the th day of May panic thst there might be a great speculatlvs collapse without Its producing sny lasting depression, but we can hardlv expect to wlthstsnd repeated shocks of this kind, snd It Is therefore now especially Important for us to strengthen our financial and banking situation and act with great prudence and caution. It seems to be lncvitiible that we should have periods of rest and recuperation. They are apt to be most severe when we have been going too rast. The paco we hnve traveled for the past five or six years has been a rapid one. The signs are not lack ing that It should be moderated before we are loo far spent. There Is yet time, and with prudence and care we should be able to avoid any lasting 111 effects. I do not believe (hat the strain Is more than we tan safely stand up to this point, but It Is time to pause and consider. We have prices for material of all kind up so high that the cost of living has greatly Increased. We hsve been consuming our available liquid capital a( a very rapid rate and changing It to fixed capital where it may be. unproductive for a long time. Cost of production has so Increased that our bal ance of foreign trade is falling oft at the rate of hundreds of millions per year. Our bank reserve are low and the loans es highly expanded ss Is prudent. The sit uation has lately been so acute as to ren der assistance! from the Treasury depart ment necessary to give some relief. Government Mast Improve. Something eho''!d be done to more nearly equalise government receipts and expendi tures. We should yesrs ago have changed our obsolete nveletn so that the funds of the government can stay In the channels of trade and not be locked Jp in vaults by the hundreds of millions. It Is unfortunate that the weakest point In our banking system Is In Its provisions for dealing with such a situation as seems before us today. Nothing could better Illustrate the necessity for a more elastic banklne currency than the demand for It at the present time. Our banks have been and are being called upon to rurnlsn the currency and credits necessary to move enormous crops, probably the largest In volume ana value tne country nas ever produced. ' It would not be any undue expansion or Inflation If these banks had the privilege of Issuing In addition to their notes covered by bonds an amount of uncovered notes equal to say 60 per cent of their covered Issues. Call It credit currency, asset cur rency or emergency currency, or what you will. A smal tax will provide a guarantee fund which will absolutely protect the note holder and the public. A graduated tax and ample provision for redemption will Insure the retirement of these notes as soon as the necessity for them ceases. Such notes have been found safe and satisfac tory in other countries. They will be mdre so here where we have abundant basis for the credits. FENCING CASE IS HELD UP (Continued from First Page.) been promoted to a $1,200 clerkship ia the War department. James R. Rowan of Iowa,, clerk at $1,200 In the War depart ment, has resigned.

A lady of St. Paul, Minn., never drank anything but cold water until she was mar ried and then commenced to drink coffee. She says: "About ons year after our marriage my husband began to complsin of a distress In his stomach and I had such dlzxy spells after each meal that we had to see doctor. Ws drank coffee three times a dsy, but did not Imagine the coffee was causing all this distress. The doctor said both our livers were out of order, gava us some medicine and told us ws ought to break oft drinking coffee. Ws stopped tt for a while, but missed tbe hot drink so much we went back to coffee. In Ave years' time I lost a oomplsxiou that was faultless and gained a very bad stomach, aad my husband's stomach was ruined. He thought he had cancer of the stomach, or something worse, but ws had formed the habit of coffee drinking and, like drunkards, found it bo easy matter to break off, although ws knew it was killing both of us. Wa kept a grocery store at ths time, and a lady called one day and asked for Postvm Food Coffss. saying: 'My children Ilk it; will not drink anything else, and I know it Is good for them because they never have trouble with their stomachs.' This Inter ested me and I told her about my bad stom ach. She told me how to make Postum and ws began Ita use ourselves. After drinking it three times a day for a week I fslt much better and my husbaad declared that he felt Ilka a nsw man. Ws have drank Postum for four years and have never had one particle of stomach trouble since, and I have loat that sallow, yellow color I so .much disliked, and ths whites of my eyes are aa clear as ever again. I kaow It ta because wa left off drinking coffee and drank Postum. I csa eat any thing and everything and never know I have a stomach. My husband used to say I would ruin our coffee trade because I told all my friends what Postum had dons for us."

CLAIM MORGAN EXERCISES NO CONTROL gays Hill's Position Is ot Clear, but Ss tnlawfal Act Has Been Com mitted and Competition Con tinues as Operative. WASH1NOTOX. Nov. 11. The answer of the Northern Psclflc to the complaint of (he state of Washington against the North ern Securities company was filed todsy In the Vnlted States supreme court. Tho brief la a general denial of "Ail and all manner of unlawful combination and con federacy wherewith It Is charged." In detail the reply denies that the con struction of the branch rosds will be less ened by the formation of the Securities company: that competition will be dimin ished and that rates will be advanced, claiming, on tbe contrary, rates have been reduced; since the merger was effected, says It has no Information as to whether J. J. Hill controls a majority of the itocft of tbe Securities company, but denies that J. Plerpont Morgan owns 85 per cent of the company's stock and that the Great North ern and the Northern Pacific are parallel or competing lines to the extent averred snd says whatever rivalry has been main tained in the past will be continued In the future. The charge that the two companies to the merger purchased the stock of the Burlington company la admitted, but It Is asserted this stock was divided equally be tween the Northern Pacific and the Great Northern, the stock being paid for In each Instance with the bonds of the purchasing company. Specific denial Is made of the charge that these bonds were ir-sued with the idea of placing the lines under a common control. Tbe answer admits the organization of the Northern Securities company In New Jersey and the retirement of the preferred stock of the Northern Pacific; also that the securities company did offer to sell share holders of the Great Northern shares at the rate of $180 each. It says ths securities company haa "pur chased for cash a large amount of tha shares of the defendsnt railway companies and of other companies." Denial Is made of the assertion that there was an agreement between James J. Hill and J. P. Morgan that Morgan should name the first board of directors of the Securities company. In this connection it is asserted that the Securities company does not dictate the policy of the Northern Pacific company or dictate its freight and passenger rates. It is further contended that the Securi ties company Is not a common carrier within the meaning of the constitution and laws of the state of Washington or any other state, "or that the acts complained of in said bill, of any of them, violate or evado the laws of the land or the settled public policy or laws of the state of Wash ington." Southern Merger Ilenled, WASHINGTON, Nov. 11. Several more railroads which were made defendants in the complaint made by the Kentucky Rail road commislson, charging merger of inter ests which threatened to place the entire southern territory under tbe domination of a single firm, filed their answer with the Interstate Commerce commission today. ' The . gnawers in , the main, like those of the Illinois Central and tho Texas Pacific filed yesterday, deny the allegations. (The Louisville ft Nashville, however, goes further and styles the complaint a mere "fishing bill," and disputes the Juris diction of tho Interstate Commerce com mission over such matters. The Atlantic Coast line admits contract ing with the Morgan company to purchase by-December 31 next, and that the Morgan company has contracted to deliver, 306, 000 shares of tho capital stock of the Lou's -ville & Nashville for $50,000,000, and that the Louisville ft Nashvlllo has assented thereto. The Southern Railway, the Southern Rail way Company In Kentucky and the South ern Railroad Company of Indiana, In a joint answer, deny that the two last named lines aro under the "management" of the Southern. They admit that Morgan ft Co. and the Southern Railway made an agree ment with practically all the holders of bonds secured on properties then belong ing to the Louisville, Evansville ft St. Louis Consolidated Railroad company whereby It was proposed to reorganize that road and vest It In the Southern. This plan was ex ecuted by a foreclosure sale. It la also ad mitted that tn pursuance of an agreement that Southern, jointly with the Louisville ft Nashville, has acquired 95,983 shares of the capital stock of the Chicago, Indianap olis ft Louisville railway.

LOOK OUT FOR The cold-wave i a g means zero weather, icy, moisture-laden -winds, and tbe beginning of winter in earnest. To Catarrh sufferers there ia notbine cheering in these climatic changes, for with the return of cold weather, all the disa greeable symptoms of Catarrh appear: blinding headaches, dizzlnqes, a stuffy feel ing about the noea that makes breathing difficult, chest pains, and, as the disease progresses, a discharge of nausMtlng mat ter from the throat and nose that keeps one continually hawking and spitting. Catarrh la a most disgusting disease, the foul mucoua secretipnaohat are constantly dropping back into the stomach, contami nate and poison the blood and ia distributed throughout the body, and it then becomes s deep-seated, systemic, persistent disease that, muct be treated through the blood, for it is beyond tbe reach of sprays, washes, powders or external treatment of any kind. S. S. S. soon clears tbe system of all Catarrhal matter and purges tbe blood, of the irritating poisons, thus effectually checking the further progress of this seri ous and far reaching disease. I,ook but for Catarrh ia tbe winter, for cold stirs the blood and causes esceasive secretion of mucus and brings to life all the slumbering poisons that make Catarrh tbe most abominable 01 ail diseases. 8.S.S. keeps tbe blood in such per fect Order that cold waves cause no alarm and tbe change from tbe torrid he :t of summer to tbe rigors of winter produces no hurtful effects.
