FOLSOM AT PRINCETON Household Tries to Hide Seri ousness of Case. PHYSICIANS KEEP SILENCE Nurse Says He Cannot Possibly Re cover Within a Month She Quarrels With Doctor and Departs in Haste. PRINCETON, N. J., Sept. 21. (Special.) As a result of a dispute between the physicians, ex-President Grover Cleveland, who is believed to be in a serious con dition at his home, "Westlands, near here, has been put in the hands of a now BpeclalLst, Dr. Banks, of New York and Jjarohmont. Dr. Banks, who had boon hurriedly summoned, reached here this forenoon. On the same train with him came Mrs. Cleveland's mother, Mrs. Per rlne Folsom, accompanied by a maid. All three were rapidly driven from the station In a closed carriage to the Cleveland place. Doctors and Nurse Quarrel. Dr. Carnahan and Dr. Bryant, who have keen attending Mr. Cleveland, are said to have disagreed as to who was proper ly in authority in the case. It is said their Uash reached so acute a stage that both decided to retire, uniting In a re duest to the family of their distinguished patient that another physician be re tained. Both of them refused today to make any statements. The head nurse also left and her de parture created some surprise, as she had stated no longer than the day before that ehe would be here at least for a month, adding that Mr. Cleveland could not pos sibly recover under that time and that he would have to have extraordinarily care ful attention to be sure of getting up and about In a month. She packed up and went yesterday afternoon. It is reported that she quarreled with Dr. Carnaham, Mr. Cleveland's Princeton physician, regarding- the Invalid's diet. Try to Conceal the Worst. Callers at Westlands today were met at the door by a nurse. She merely said Mr. Cleveland was doing well and re fused all other information regarding the ex-President's condition. Later it was announced on behalf of the family that Mr. Cleveland had been out riding this morning for an hour. A man .who was on duty just outside the gates during the entire day said he had not seen Mr. Cleveland either going or returning. He was out riding for a little while last Sunday and again Tues day, but most of the reports regarding such outings are believed to be fictitious. BOY RESPONSIBLE FOR ACT Lunacy Commission Finds Albert Olcmnn a Sane Lad. ST. HELENS. Or., Sept. 21. (Special.) That Albert Oleman, in jail here for kill ing his foster-mother, is sane and re sponsible for his awful crime is the re port of the lunacy commission which re ported today to Judge McBride. Dr. Williamson, who, with Dr. Andrew C. Smith and Dr. William Kruse, was ap pointed to examine Albert Oleman, the tit. Helens boy who murdered his foster mother, said last night that the conclu sions of the examining board were that the boy has a full realization of the crime and its penalty, and Is competent to go to trial. "He is bright and intelligent and quite the equal of boys of his age." said Dr. "Williamson. "The only defect that we could discover was that he didn't seem to have the sense of the moral obliquity of the crime. He was more concerned In the outcome as to the effect it would have on him in the way of punishment. He 1 ' was prompted by a spirit of revenge for some scoldings he had received and to conceal a theft he had committed on this woman. . "He has many of the earmarks of the criminal. He has a blunted moral sense. He is an accomplished liar. We had con siderable trouble in breaking him down. At tlrst. he told a plausibl story of a tramp having committed the crime and got away. We had a hard time getting him to confess." . SENSATION IN RUICK CASE Witness Says Other Names Were Added to Jury's Own List. BOISE, id.-iho. Sept. cl (Special.) Wit nesses were called and the entire day and evening were consumed in taking testi mony In the Rulck cace today. The feat ure was the testimony of 'Frank M.

Members of the American Newspaper Publishers' Associ ation, which met recently at the "Waldorf Astoria, appointed a committee and .In structed it to call the attention of Pres ident Roosevelt to what the association asserts is an unlawful combination of pa per manufacturers to keep up the price of white paper and to demand relief from what they consider an oppressive burden.

Herman Rldder. president of the Amer ican Newspaper Publishers' Association, and publisher of the Staats Zeitung. salt?: "This is a fight In the common Interest. The printing and newspaper industry Is the third largest business in the United States. Its future cannot be left to the mercy of a few manufacturers, who hide behind the tariff and hold it up. Paper is our raw material. "In striking at the tariff, we are doing the newspaper industry a kindness. We are making it safe for them to extend their business Into Canada without fear of a tariff war, which would otherwise make suclfan Investment unsafe." G. F. Underwood, of the International Paper Company, said: "The conditions of the paper trade are such that It necessitlates higher prices for paper. Production is twice as ex pensive at present as it was a short while ago. The cost of labor has Increased 50 per cent: wood has advanced 12 per cord and other articles used in the manufac ture of paper have increased from 60 to 100 per cent In cost. Very few paper manufacturers are making money under the present condi tions. In some -cases, they have been supplying orders on old contracts at a loss, and any new contracts must be made on higher schedule." Admits Deal W ith Standard. PITTSBURG. Pa.. Sept. 21. A. D.

EXPRESSIONS OF SEVERAL INTERESTING EVENTS OF THE WEEK The Wrong Man fiwni to Have Been Caught in Mr. Rogers' Trap. DEPOSITORS FOR II Vote Is Unanimous at Armory Meeting. SCHEME IS FAVORED BY 1500 Hundreds Agree to Take Tele phone Bonds. SPEAKERS IN AGREEMENT AH Declare That In but One Way Can the Oregon Trust & Sav ings Bank Fay Its . Creditors in Full. Fifteen hundred depositors of the wrecked Oregon Trust' & Savings Bank placed themselves on record last night at the Armory mass meeting in favor of the plan of reorganization already made public. Hearty support was pledged the scheme, and several hundred signed re quests to suhs.-rlbe for the telephone bonds now remaining with the bank as an asset to be converted into cash, and for stock In the reorganized institution. "If Mr. Moore and his associates are willing to put In good dollars to help us get back our bad dollars, we should be willing to do our share," said one speaker, and this seemed to be the spirit of the meeting. The drill hall at the Armory was crowded with depositors, and. despite the fact that the body of the hall had been tilled with chairs, many had . to stand. All the speakers warmly indorsed the reorganization plan and referred to it as the only way the depositors could get their money. Secretary Richmond made the announcement that none of the old officers will be connected with the reor ganized bank. He further said that an other bank In the city, which is under stood to be- the German-American, has made arrangements to pay ail claims against the Oregon Trust i & Savings Bank as soon as the reorganization is made certain. Depositors who had ac counts "of less than $25 will be 'paid in full before the doors of the Oregon Trust & Savings Bank are opened. Not only was the report of the depos itors' committee, which favors the reor ganization, adopted, but a resolution was unanimously carried, by a rising vote, pledging the depositors to do nil they can in the work of-reorganization. The reso lution follows: Text of the Resolution. We. as members of the Depositors' As sociation, do hereby Indorse the plan of rehabilitation jt the Oregon Trust & Sav ings Bank, as outlined by Senator E. Haines, president of the Oregon State Bank-Ins- Association, and Hon. Jefferson Myers; and that as members of this association, we will use our best endeavors to secure the taking of bonds and also the bank stock, and when the bank Is rehabilitated, we will work for Its upbuilding and progress. F. J. McHenry, of the executive com mittee of the Depositors' Association, was called on to submit the report of the committee on reorganization. He made the following report: We. your committee, appointed to investi gate and report as soon as' practicable, have met at various times and have Investigated to the best of our ability and In so doing, havo deemed it advisable to call In special assistance and counsel. In the persons of Senator G. W. Haines and Hon. Jefferson Myr. These gentlemen have gone thoroughly over the matter and have made a signed report, in which this, your committee, coincide, and have adopted the same as their report to this body, and which reads as follows: Bills receivable $ 62B.000 Telephone bonds 885.000 Pacific & Eastern Railway bonds. . 100,000 United Hallways bonds 75.000 I.ewlston Light Power Bonds.. 52,000 Bank stock in other banks 24.000 'ah and due from banks 577,000 Shippers accounts and others 11,000 Overdrafts 157.000 Estimated Interest due 50.000 Bank fixtures and lease 73.000 W.

Day and said: "I am going to talk to you as a depositor- Business men may say I had poor judgment in intrusting my money to the hank, but judging from the crowd here tonight,. I have lots of company. I had $8800 in the bank when it failed, and I have subscribed every dollar for tele phone bonds. AVe have got to get at those assets and realize on them, and the only way to do it and get anywhere near what they are worth is to adopt the plan of reorganization Just given to you. Tf you put the whole assets through the hands of a receiver, it will be a long time before you realize on your accounts and then you will get 60 per cent or 60 per cent at best. "There is $1,000,000 in bonds in the bank. We are bound to lose if these bonds are ' sold when purchasers have hammered down the market to the very lowest point. I believe if this course is followed and the bank's affairs are wound up by the receiver the losses of depositors in the City of Portland will amount to more than the city put into the Lewis and' Clarke Exposition, which was nearly $1,000,000. Under a Heavy Expense. "Every day we let things go on as they are now, we pay a heavy expense. The sooner this is stopped the better. Sen ator Simon and Receiver Devlin have both assured me that they are anxious to do all they can to aid the depositors and want to close up the matter just as soon as possible. I believe In three years' time I will get all my money, with interest and perhaps some profit, if the reorganization plan is followed. The bonds are good. Coupons for 5 per cent interest are paid semi-annuallyy In Dos Angeles and New York and may be col lected through your banker. "If things go on through a receivership, we may expect a. 15 per cent dividend between now and January 1. This, I con sider, the best possible hope. How long will it be before the next division?

Prince Ito, the Japan ese Resident General of Corea, leaves here tomorrow for Seoul. Just before his Investiture at the palace this morning he spoke freely of the future of Corea. Dur ing the month that Ito has been in Tokio, Corea has been his only theme, and the result is that the Emperor and his Min isters have given unanimous approval to his programme for reform. In fact never, except In war, have the politicians of Japan been so united. Discussing this subject today. Prince Ito showed a depth of feeling unusual In Japanese. "It Is right," he declared, "and there fore must be done. It must succeed. If It is possible of human accomplishment." Ito has opposed steadfastly the annex ation of Corea, and this against his friends and advisers. Instead, he drew up a programme providing for equitable land laws, a fair system of taxation, the protection of life and property, education, fair courts of Justice, and the stern aboli tion of corruption. The estimated cost of these reforms to Japan is placed at $10,000,000 in Ave: years and this has been approved. It will not become a tax upon Corea. At the conclusion of this significant In terview, Prince Ito spoke of the friend ly relations between Japan and the United States, and expressed his ad miration for President Roosevelt. "America Is out friend," he said. "We are friends of America. The recent talk of war finds no support among the statesmen of Japan or the United States. War between these two countries Is un speakable and impossible." s FRENCH WILIi RENEW ATTACK Peace Negotiations at C'asa Blanca Have Failed. PARIS. Sept. 21.
