become the alliances of iloadfng ft

Ing the last three months that almost
absolute control or the country b ii

are acting In concert.

Istenee with J. P Morgan at Its bead,
most gigantic combination of capital
In the world: ' There is no concrete,
definite organization .to. this latest
trust, no k'KHl incorporation, n
elected directors, no list of stork

of the financial world, it lb simply a
community of interest.

TIere are some of the things the
trust could do:
It could call $200,000,000 of loans
over nlirht and rum auv adversary.
'it aould ruin credits to such ai
degree as to cause extreme money
stringency and great commercial uiv
trust, - -: ,
It could tie up cash holdings of
New York banks by demanding cer

amounts. ' ,'
It- pould :den)etA hank reserves In

Pnso Kobles Hot Springs are at
this time the point of Interest to most
investigators, aa reptne . occurences
haver attracted the attention of the
thinking world to these springs ,
Ono of their chief points nf Inter
est to medical men Is said, to bo that,
which prows that a pre-eminent ac
tion rests in- the waters which flow
fr'rim the earth at Paso Robles, Cal
ifornia. ,. . ...y
Paso Robles Hot Springs nre mak
ing cures dally . of rheumatism, out,
stomach trouble, neurotic diseases,
kidney trouble, and- gen oral break
down, which tprovos almost beyond
question to medical-'men that there
Is some quality In these waters su
uerlor to any in this country and
probably In the world. .
It Is also claimed for Paso Robles
that the air conditions are perfect It
lies n a small valley protected by
mountain ranges; is 720 feet above
sea. level nnd Is not assailed by too
milch sea moisture or an abnormal
temperature from the hot land winds.
This air condition Is thought by
soma to have almost as much to do
with Its euros as the waters them
selves. , , .. ...
The town like all health resorts,
is tilled with boarding bouses of all
kinds, so that every purse will be
pleased. There are hotels for the
rich, where any luxury may be had.
Private baths for exclusive patrons
who -wish to he to themselves.
These-aprlnga have been known
for centuries, for they were used by
the Indian to cure his sick nnd later
the Franciscan fathers performed
wonderful cures here, but It Is only
recently that the really marvelous
powers of these waters were made
known to the world at large. ,
Nearly every form or organic trou
ble 1s. treated at these hot-springs
for the authorities welcome all1 ex
cept those who have tuberculosis or
unclean diseases. For the man who
suffers from overeating or from alco
holic excesses there Is nothing In the
world to equal a week spent at Paso
Robles.. H straightens him out with
a rapidity, that is wonderful, and the
went recommendation is that they do
away with the uorve-craving for stim
ulants because .. of - their peculiar
soothing .effects upon the nervous
hyestem. - -
Truly speaking the study of Paso
Robles Hot Springs Is one which 1b
giving the medical fraternity abroad
and at home much Interest, and
probably directing , more attention
to California than any other of her
natural gifts to man.
A small book, neatly Illustrated
has been recently published by the
management telling tthe Btory of the
Hot Springs -In a most Interesting
manner and giving complete infor
