New York Firm Says Delay of
Bulletin Was Intentional,
Which North Denies.
WASHINGTON. Oct. 25. A total of
4,640,728 bales of cotton sinned In the
United States up to October 18 Is the
statement announced In a "bulletin Is
sued by the Census Bureau today. No
estimate is made of the total crop
for the year, but figures are given out
concerning crops of former years.
These figures show that up to this
date in 1904 the product of the gins
had reached a total of 6,417,849 bales,
out of a total of 13,693,279 bales for
The fact that the bulletin "was not
issued until 2 o'clock, two hours after
the usual time, caused some complaint
from brokers in different cities, and
some of these which reached the Bu
reau before the document was given to
the public were of a sensational char
acter. These are summarized in the
following from Secretary Hester, of
the New Orleans Cotton Exchange,
Much disappointment and dissatisfaction

P M Bach & Co., of New York, wire Hay

lows David Miller has Just made the state
ment to the effect that the sinners report
has been delayed' from 12 o'clock to 2 o'clock,

to sell couton, and says he will stand by the
One rumor here Is that tho report tvlll show,
counting round as half bales, 0,100,100. All
kinds of rumors are being spread and parties
are selling the market down, under sus
picion of something wrong In your Bureau. I
send this because 1 think it proper you should
know It. The David Miller referred to was the
receiver of Sully & Co. and Is "a prominent
member of the New Tork Cotton Exchange
To this Mr. North replied:
Nobody In this office knows even aooroxl
mately at the moment how many bales .ginned
the report will show. The men engaged
In compiling It are locked up and the door
guarded on the outside. More than half the
telegraphic reports from country agents were
received this morning and their compila
tion prior to 2 o'clock was a physical Im
possibility. This telegram was forwarded be
fore the bulletin was given out, and
after It was issued it was stated that
some of the reports from the agents
were not received until 10 minutes be
fore 2 o'clock.
NEW TORK, Oct. 25. The report of the
Census Bureau Issued today, giving the
amount of cotton ginned to October IS as
4,910,728 bales, against 6,417.891 bales to tho
same date last year, caused sensational
fluctuations In the late session of the
cotton market. Inside of 10 minutes after
the figures were published. January,
which had been selling as low as 10.33.
shot up 37 points to 10.70. The market
was feverishly' excited. On the bulge
leading bears became aggressive, how
ever, and the market reacted almost as
rapidly as It had advanced. Before the
report wag published a rumor was in cir
culation saying the report would show
fully 6,000,000 bales ginned. The closing
was steady at a net advance of 1520
points. The sales of the day were esti
mated at 1.500,000 bales.
NEW ORLEANS. Oct. 25. When the
report of the Census Bureau was read
prices in cotton shot up 44 to 63 points
higher than the lowest of the day, or as
much as 53.15 per bale. December at 1:10
P. M. was 10.65; January. 10.74, 44 points
higher, and larch 10.93, 63 points higher.
The report effectively controverted the
false report sent out earlier in the day.
STARTS 'REFORM WITHIN
(Continued Prom Page 1.)
to October 1, 1905. Cash loans for this
period aggregated $117,S20,500. Of this
amount five cases were foreclosed, leav
ing a net profit of not quite $12,000. Of
the many mortgages on property
sold by the society from January 1, 1895,
the controller's statement showed one
foreclosure, with a loss og $1327.
Receipts of the Equitable Society for the
third quarter QX this year lor premiums,
interest, rent, etc.. amount to 16,973,037, as
compared with $17,306,314 In the same quar
ter of last year. Disbursements for the
third quarter of this year amount to $11,
809,483, against $11,904,535 last year. Re
ceipts for the first nine months of this
year amount to $55,772,176, compared with
$53 718,642 for the first nine months of
Disbursements thus far this year are
somewhat in excess of those for 1904,
amounting to $39,048,979, as against $37.
551,504. Thus the report shows that the Eqult
able's receipts for the nine months of
this year exceed the expenditures by $16,
723.197, an increase -of $556,059 as compared
with last year. Receipts from premiums
on policies for the third quarter of 1903.
however, show a falling off of $1,007,413
as compared with 1904.
The statement shows that during the
third quarter of this yrar "current ex
penses" were reduced $839,913. but during
the first six months there -was an in
crease on this account of $424,943,. leaving
a net reduction for nine months of $414,
970. The reduction for the third .quarter
was said at the .Society's offices to be
due to "the Tact that less business was'
written, during the period this year than
last and therefore fewer commissions
were paid and also to .the fact that sal
aries had been reduced and other econo
A credit of $881,519 to the profit and loss
account for nine months represented
profits on securities sold." The amount
of the falling off. In new business is not
given In the report.
BAR TO FEDERAL CONTROL
Connecticut Underwriters Say Law
Would Be Unconstitutional.
HARTFORD, Conn.. Oct. 25. At a
meeting of the State Board of Trade held
here today the report of the committee
of underwriters on the proposed Federal
supervision of insurance was presented.
The report says the occasion for, presen
tation of the matter is a letter
upon the subject from Senator Dryden,
asking for expressions of opinion and an
swers to his inquiries. v
The report says that it Is conceded that
Federal supervision of insurance can be
accomplished in tout one way. namely, by
a constitutional law declaring Insurance
,to be commerce, and also that. If Insur
ance is not commerce, Congress has no
power to regulate it. Tho whole theory
of the proposed centralization of power
rests on these propositions. The report
It Is sought tb establish Federal control
of insurance and. to take the chances on the
Constitutional questions, through a bill in
the next Congress, modeled On the Dryden bill
of the last session, with slight modifications;
'that Is, through an amendment of an act to
establish the Department of Commerce and
XAbor, adding to the Bureau of Corporation
an office called the Superintendent of Insur
ance, Jn charge of a division to be called the
Division of Insurance, and following In gen
eral lines the powers and duties that already
obtain la the legislation of various etatce aa
to supervision of insurance.
Jn our belief, all these propositions are theo
retical; they rest on Inference and conjecture,
not on precedent, and facta, and all await
demonstration. They are all confronted by
serious obstacles. Chief among them Is the
controlling fact that In a series; of decisions
the Supreme Court of the United States has
declared and affirmed that insurance Is not
Not Guilty of Contempt.
CHICAGO, Oct 25. General Manager M.
I. Rosenfeld, President George M; Moul
ton and EL D. Moore, members of the
board of directors of the Western Lite
Indemnity Company, were today dis
charged by Federal Judge C. C. Kohlsaat
from ' a rule to 'show causa why they
should not be held In contempt of court.
Judge Kohlsaat intimated that he was
not entirely satisfied with the explana
tion concerning the Western Life Com
pany's purchase of stock in the Security
Life & Annuity Company, but added that
there was no showing of intentional dis
regard of court orders.

lateral Pcnnypuckcr Asks
Roosevelt to Investigate..
PITTSBURG. Pa., Oct. 25. (Special.)
Suits both' criminal and civil will be
brought in connection with the Enter
prise National Bank failure as soon as
the papers can be prepared. Charles
Barron has been investigating the condi
tion of the bank and the causes that led
to Its closing, and says he .has discovered
a remarkable state of affairs. He said:
"At the time Its doors were closed the
Enterprise "Bank had total resources in
deposits, capital, surplus and undivided
profits of about $2,250,000. The actual
amount of cash found in the bank was
$40,000. All the balance was loaned' out.
Investigation will further show that near
ly every bit of negotiable collateral placed
with the bank on loans had been re-hypothecated
with other institutions. What
became of the money? There is not a
single bit of evidence to show that Clark
profited from It himself."

CLARKE LEFT CONFESSION
Criminal Proceedings Against the
Wreckers of Enterprise Bank.
PITTSBURG, Pa., Oct. 25. A new
force of employes was at work today
with the books of the Enterprise Na
tional Bank. All the old employes ex
cept the bank messengers were noti
fied by Receiver Cunningham that
their services were no longer neede'd.
Mr. Cunningham refused to assign his
reasons for making the change.
Controller of the Currency Bldgely,
who It was said yesterday was in
Pittsburg or coming to this city to
take personal charge of the affairs of
the bank, has not yet been located.
John Marron, a prominent Pittsburg
attorney. Is authority for the statement
that legal proceedings, both criminal and
civil, are to be brought In connection with
the Enterprise Bank failure. Mr. Marron
says he has been retained by a person
whose name for the present he will with
hold. Mr. Marron asserted that he has
positive information of the existence of a
complete confession written by Clarke
before he committed suicide. This confes
sion, according to Mr. Marron, gives In
formation as to Clarke's operations nnd
WASHINGTON, Oct- 25. The Con
troller of the Currency has been called
upon by the Department of Justice to
send a special examiner to Pittsburg
to make an investigation of the af
fairs of the Enterprise National Bank
of Allegheny, Pa., recently closed by
order of the Controller. The examiner
will make his report directly to the
United States District Attorney of
Pittsburg. Edward P. Moxey, Nation

district, will make the investigation.
ASKS FOR THOROUGH PROBING
Pennypncker Writes to Roosevelt
About Enterprise -Bank.
HARRISBCRG, Pa., Oct 25. Governor
Pennypacker this .evening made public
the following copy of a letter which he
sent today to President Roosevelt ask
ing for a general investigation into the
affairs of the Enterprise National Bank
The Enterprise National Bank, doing business
In Allegheny, has recently failed, having
at the time among Its deposits $1.030,OU0 of
the moneys of this commonwealth.. These
moneys were deposited upon the faith of
the stability of the Institution arising through
Its organisation us a National batlx and. be
cause of thene deposits, the commonwealth is
much interested In the ascertainment of the
condition oZ its financial affairs. Our Com
missioner of Banking has no control over It
and no power to make such lnvemlgatlon.
Since It was organised under Federal laws
and subject to your superviaion, I write to.
ask that a full, complete and careful In
vestigation may be made, so that everything
connected with "the condition of affairs and
the causes which have led to such condUon
may be fully disclosed. I am ready to render
all the assistance In my power to fiecure a
thorough ascertainment of the facts.
TRY MITCHELL AS HERETIC
Methodist Bishops Consider Case of
Higher Critic of Bible.
WASHINGTON. Oct. 2G. The College
of Bishops of the Methodist. Episcopal
Church, comprising the governing
body of that denomination, met in
semi-annual conference here today.
The disposition of the case of Profes
sor Hinkley G. Mitchell, elected by the
board of trustees of the Boston Uni
versity to fill the chair of Hebrew, Is
perhaps the question of most popular
interest before the bishops, six months
ago the bishops refused to confirm the
selection of Professor Mitchell, on the
ground that his interest in the "high
er criticism" of the Bible unfitted him
to teach the fundamentals of Meth
odism. The trustees of the university have
refused to concur in this decision, and
have reappointed the professor. Five
years ago Professor Mitchell was be
fore the bishops, and explained his be
liefs to their satisfaction. Since that
time he has published a book called
"The Words Before Abraham," in
which it is alleged by many church
men he has made heretical statements
concerning the Old Testament. It was
this work which wns thn hnsta of tVin
adverse action six months ago. when.!
th A VtlRhnnR m.rn nasrlu ann.11,, JllVTN
ed on the question.
The sessions of the conference are
held. behind closed doors, that there
may be the greatest freedom in the
presentation and discussion of "busl
ness and other matters.
It is understood that the first three
days of the conference will be devoted
to hearing repor.ts from the superin
tendents on the work in -their partic
ular fields. Each bishop has prac
tically absolute authority in his bish
opric, and an effort is ss&de at the

u ine ursi. rung in mo laaacr Oi success.
The Eilers Piano House havo appreciated
this and have furthered every end to
economize, adopting all methods that
would enable them to sell the best pianos
at the lowest prices. To accomplish this,
the Eilers Piano House buys pianos in
quantities amounting to train loads, not
car loads, dealing with the manufacturer
direct on a monthly shipment and a cash
basis, thereby receiving the greatest dis
counts. In shipping' these pianos by the
special harness -system, originated by
Eilers Piano House, instead of In a
weighty box, another savlng of several
hundred dollars on every car is effected.
Numerous other unique and money-saving
facilities aro thus employed by
Eilers Piano House.
Coupled with the above advantages. Is
the policy of Eilers Piano House of small
profits and quick sales.
The advantages secured In buying in
the Eilers way are given to tho retail
buyer, resulting in much lower prices
on reliable, standard pianos than can be
obtained elsewhere. This in turn brings
about a great volume of business, which
in Itself .makes it possible for Eilers
Piano House to sell to each Individual
buyer at a very slight advance over Iho
cost to the manufacturer. These then,
are the reasons we are able to carry so
many choice and popular makes and find
customers for all of them.
