of the general industrial situation in

W. Williams of Philadelphia, in ther
absence of Thomas W. Lamont, chair
man. It said in part:
"There have been many American
purchases of internal municipal and
government loans of various foreign
countries. It would seem advisable, in
connection with such purchases in this
country, to draw the attention of the
Investment Bankers' association to
the necessity of taking some steps
looking toward the protection of thi
American investment public, both
through the dissemination of more
knowledge of the nature and intrinsic
merit of some of these securities as
well as the establishment of a safe
guard against the issuance of forged
or fraudulent securities."

DREAM IS COMING TRUE
Daughter of "Wanderer Arrives In
Seattle From Alaska on Way
to .New York to Study.
SEATTLE. Wash.. Oct. 4. (Special.)
This is the story of a little girl who
believes in fairies and of a mother
who is a dreamer of dreams. It is a
story of genius rising out of the ashes
of a man's wrecked career and finding
reincarnation in the life of a child.
It is the story of a submerged and
voiceless race rendered articulate
through the fire of an artless passion.
Twenty years ago a young girl, an
emigrant out of Bohemia, passed
through the Ellis-island gateway into
America. Product of a land which.
during ten centuries of tears, has not
forgotten how to laugh, she carried in
her. heart the pent dreams of all her
hopeless past and the glad anticipa
tion of an emancipated future.
In the Bohemian colony of Detroit
not the false Bohemian colony of long
haired men and short-haired women
but the "little Bohemia'' that seeks its
vision of freedom through hard and
unremitting toil she met and married
W. M. Bazant, a man of her own raw.
' Child Begins to Flay Violin.
"Wilma Bazant, the little girl who
believes in fairies, is the product of
Bazant, mechanic, in the pursuit of
his trade, went from city to -city, in
the middle invest, and five years ago
passed through Seattle to Alaska. The
family settled in' Juneau, and it was
here that the mother placed a violin
in the child's hands.
Wilma was placed under the tutel
age of a violinist named Sumpf. She
studied under him for eight months,
and the exigencies of Bazant's trade
made it necessary for the family to
move on to Seward. For almost four
years the child went -without train
ing, but during this time she continued
to play; sometimes by note, sometimes
just little twittering things that
seemed a part of her alone. Hours
at a time she played, weaving with
the notes the fabric of all her child
ish joys and longings.
Girl Leaves for Xfw York.
One evening three, months ago a
roughly clad man. passing the house,
heard the child's music, and went in.
He took the violin from her hands.
drew the bow across the strings with
unaccustomed fingers, and said: "I
will teach you to play."
He did so. This was three months
ago. The other day he said "I can
teach you no more.' You must go to
New York, to Leopold Auer.'.' And
last night 11-year-old Wilma Bazant
with her mother left Seattle for New
"Peter Stark taught her the wrist
movement, but it was her nature to
play." said Mrs. Bazant just before
boarding the train which will take
her and the child to Leopold Auer.
Girl Entertains Passengers.
Stark Is working with pick and
shovel on government construction
out of Seward. And if the meager
gleanings of Mrs. Bazant in regard to
his history, gained through several
months of acquaintance, are actual
facts, he at one time was the director
of his own orchestra in Chicago and
appeared in concert on the same stage
Bazant now owns a-machine shop.
Instead of reinvesting his earnings in
his business, he decided to put his
uncertain surplus into the necessary
training for his daughter. Mrs. Ba
zant and Wilma sailed on the steam
ship Alaska, which arrived In Seattle
The trip down was typical of the
season, passengers kept indoors by
the weather. The quest for relief
from boredom during several days in
a stuffy cebin brought attention to
the violin case which is never very
far from Wilma. After repeated re
quests she played. Her accompanist
was a millionaire New Yorker re
turning from a hunting expedition.
Her audience was a composite of the
vigorous civilization of Alaska and
the wealth and education of the east
She played the intricate composi
tions of Massenet, the arias of Verdi,
the lilting notes of Dvorak, the calm,
triumphant measures of Beethoven.

girl and a mother whose eyes were
dimmed with tears of pride. For the

Democratic Candidate's Chances
"Qone, Says A. Holtz of Cleve
"Ohio will go for Harding by a
60.000 to 75,000 majority," said A.
Holtz of Cleveland, O., who arrived
In Portland yesterday. Mr. Holtz
was the original advertising manager
in Portland, starting that line here
in 1899, when he was with the Meier
& Frank company. For the past
seven years, since leaving Portland.
Mr., Holtz has. been in Cleveland, but
is on-the road more or less, and this
has given him an exceptional oppor
tunity to gauge political sentiment.
"There is now a decided swing to
Harding.' continued Mr. Holtz. "Up
to about three weeks ago Governor
Cox had a pretty fair show of carry
ing Ohio, but his chances have dis
appeared and his defeat in his home
state is a foregone conclusion. The
head of the house with which I am
associated told me before I started
or Portland that he has S10.000 to
bet that Harding carrjes Ohio and for
me to pick up any bets for him on
that basis that I could find.
"Governor Cox is a good, mixer and
has been friendly with the wet and
sporting interests. For a while it
looked as if he might carry the
state. However, Cox's conduct on the
stump and the tenor of his speeches
have cost him votes. Substantial
business men. believe Harding is more
dignified and a better man to head
the government. At first both Cox
and Harding were considered satis
factory to business, but Governor Cox
has been shouting 'profiteering' until
legitimate business, seeking legiti
mate profit, is becoming tired.
"Whatever prospect Cox had of
winning is gone. He certainly can
not carry Ohio and he will not carry
New York. In short, wherever I have
traveled of late the talk generally
has been for Harding."
