NEW YORK, July 19. Expressing
the belief that the present trustee ar
rangement for control of the Equitablf
Life Assurance Society may only tem
porarily satisfy either policyholders
or the public, and that -a real solution
of the society differences has not been
reached, George , Westlnghouse has
suggested a nexv plan for stock con
trol of the society, by 5000 policyhold
ers. The Westlnghouse plan is out
lined in a letter to Paul D. Cravath. an
attorney of this city.
The letter was made public today.
The proposition outlined is that all
shareholders be invited to place their
shares with those of Mr. Ryan in the
hands of the trustees, with power to
vote for an amendment to the society's
charter providing that the stock shall
consist of 5000 shares of $20 each, In
stead of 1000 shares of 5100 each; that
no person uxeept a policyholder shall
be a director; that only one share shall
be held by any single person, who must
be a policyholder; that at each annual
election seven policyholders who have
not previously served shall be chosen,
and that trustees be directed and em
powered to offer for sale at $1000 a
share the 5000 shares contemplated by
the amended charter to the 5000 larg
est policyholders, and in the event of
any such offer not being accepted, then
to continue to offer said shares to the

FIGHT FOR MINING COMPANY
Sensational Speculation on Berlin
Exchange Caused by Struggle.
BERLIN. July 19. Sensational spec
ulation is going on on the Berlin
Bourse in the shares of the Deutsche
Luxemburgische Mining Company,
which today recorded a Jump of 20 per
cent, making a total rise of S3 per
cent since June 30. Tho Bourse is much
puzzled over the meaning of this spec
ulation, which recalls many features of
the great struggle over the Hlbernia
coal mines last Summer between the
banks and the Prussian Treasury De
partment, to secure control of tho
mines. Various rumors are in circula
tion In explanation of the present cam
paign. The Deutsche Luxemburgische Is the
creation of the Darmstadter Bank,
which reorganized ft three years ago
from two bankrupt iron companies, the
DIfferdingen and the Dannenbaum. Ac
cording to one version, another bank is
trying to secure control, but another
and apparently the more correct ex
planation is that the Deutsche Luxem
burgische Company Is about to enter
Into a fusion with several other con
cerns. The Deutsche Luxemburgische Com
pany has a capital of 5G.600.000 and
50Q.O0O in debentures. It owns furnaces
and rolling mills patterned after the
American system. The chairman of Its
board of directors is Director Dotn

Premier Balfour. In winding up the de

by any other nation. He referred to the
American immigration laws and asked
whether anyone would assert that the
Americans were Indifferent to freedom or
looked with unmoved eye on th suffering
and oppression, yet their restrictions as
well as the restrictions imposed by the
British colonies .were more severe than
those Imposed by "this moderate and rea
The aliens bill Is much on the lines of a
measure Introduced in the House of Com
mons last year, which, was opposed by the
government owing to obstructions. It
prohibits Immigrants from landing except
at ports where an Immigration officer Is
stationed, and only with his consent and
after a medical Inspection. Immigrants
may be refused permission to land, it they
are unable to show that they are Jn a
position to obtain means to keep them
selves decently. If Insane. If on account of
disease or other causes they are likely
to become a charge on the taxpayers. If
they have been sentenced abroad for an
extraditable crime not of a political na
ture, or if they have been previously ex
pelled from Great Britain. The Home Sec
retary may order the "expulsion of an
alien on a certificate from a court of law.
The bill however, provides that an alien
shall not be refused permission to land
on account of want of means, if able to
prove that be or she Is seeking admission
to Great Britain solely to avoid persecu
tion for political offenses.

The disease that has done more ' v5) "PUTgllV
than any other to wreck, rain and lnCrM.!
humiliate life, is Contagious Blood Poison. Sorrow, shame and suffering go
hand in hand with this great enemy, and man has always hated and fought
it as he has no other disease. It is the most powerful of all poisons; no mat
ter how pure the blood maybe, when its virus enters, the entire circulation
becomes poisoned and its chain of horrible symptoms begin to show. Usu
ally the first sign is .a. small sore or ulcer, not at all alarming in appearance,
but the blood is being saturated with the. deadly poison, and soon the mouth
and throat begin to ulcerate, the hair and eyebrows drop out, a red eruption
breaks out on the body, copper-colored splotches and sores make their
appearance and the poison even works down into the bones and attacks
the nerves. Kot only is the disease hereditary, being transmitted from
parent to child, in the form of scrofula, weak eyes, soft bones, weak, puny
constitutions, etc., but is also so highly contagious that many a life has
been ruined by a friendly hand shake, or from using the toilet articles of
one infected with, the poison. To cure this blighting, deadly curse the
first begins to expel the poison and build up and strengthen the system.
