Leslie M. Shaw Says We Need
Too Many Colliers to Be
Prepared for War.
BANQUET TO R. M. EVANS
Responding to Toast He Sajs He
Fears Nothing but Western Hos
pitality Senator Depew Says
Our Fleet Can Cio Anywhere.
XBW YORK, Nov. 2. Admiral Robley
D. Evans, who is soon to depart in com-"
mand of the battleship squudron for the
Pacitlc. was the guest of honor at a not
able dinner Riven tonight at the Lotus
Club. A larse number of distinguished
Kuests participated in the greeting to the
Admiral, Slid the speakers included, be
sides the guest of honor. Bishop Potter,
Senator C'hauncey M. Depew, ex-Secretary
of the Treasury Shaw, Seth Low,
Admiral CouRhlin and Nicholas Murray
Butler, president of Columbia University.
in responding to a toast to his health,
Admiral .Evans said:
"This fleet of li battleships and other
vessels will sail from Hampton 'Roads on
December hi. I do not think anybody
wants to stop it.' 1 do not think anybody
will stop it, for I know the men and I
know the ships. You won't be disap
pointed In the fleet, whether it proves to
be a feast, a frolic or a light.
Would Iiike to Go to Japan.
"It would please me very much to take
the fleet to Yokohama. I know the Jap
anese and I know that we would get a
welcome there. I know it would not be
the welcome, we would get from a certain
gang in San Francisco. I do not fear
the flower shows and the dog shows, but
1. do fear the hospitality of those West
ern people. When I took charge of the
fleet two and a half years ago, we had
some target practice out there which I
thought was good, and it was good, but
during our last target practice in Massa
chusetts Bay we did better than was ever
done in the world before."
Ex-Secretary Shaw said that it was a
good thing to have a navy and espec
ially one that "hits." which was after
all the only real navy.
lly 'o Means Heady for War.
"We have the navy, but we may never
have any need for it, -unless the world'
learns that we have no colliers or trans
ports. I regret that we have to have for
eign ships accompanying our fleet, and it
I humiliating that we should have to pay
half a million dollars to foreign ships to
carry our coal. If this were a war cruise
instead of one of .peace, who would haul
our cual? Don't deceive yourselves into
believing that we are prepared for war.
We need colliers as much as we need
guns. Here a man may not say before the
press what we think in our heartfi."
Senator Chauncey M. Depew spoke in
part as follows;
Can Go Anywhere in the World.
"The commotion which this expedition
has created and the discussion it has
aroused all o,ver the world is one of the
eccentricities of the times. We have S0W
miles of coast on the Atlantic and its
harbors are familiar to our fleet. We
have an equal number of miles on the
Pacific and most of its harbors have
never seen an American battleship.
"The Orient, which believes only what
It sees, must be reminded of the fact that
the United States is .second among the
naval powers of the world. Why, why
can our fleet sail only on the Atlantic and
must not sail on the Pacific Ocean? The
answer is because it would offend the sus
ceptibilities of the new power in the
East Japan. In the first place. I believe
that the Japanese statesmen are too sen
sible and too well informed to have any
such feeling, or to desire trouble with
the l'nited States, in the next place,
where any fleet of any friendly nation
goes, ours can go if it likes and -it ij no
one's business but our own.''

New York Hanks Lose Cash Not as
Hud as 1803.
NEW YORK. Nov. 2. The statement of
Clearing-House banks for the week shows
that the banks hold J38.S3S.S25 .less than
the requirements of the 23 per cent re
serve rule. This is a decrease in cash re
serve surplus of $17.60o.525. as compared
with last week. The statement follows:
Loans. $1.148.2rio,K0: increase, $,741.SOO.
Circulation, $.'.1,742, 700; increase, $.",44,400.
Legal tenders, $48,194,000; decrease. $20,

Reserve required, J2ii2.!M,725; increase,
Deficit. $.T8.838.S25; increase, $37,365,525.
Ex-United States deposits, not given.
The statement as given out at the
nearing-House contains this additional
sentence: ' ,
"Percentage of reserve. 21.30, against 20
The deilcit of $.'tS.S38.R25 this week com
pares with a deficit of $1,233,300 last week.
The Financier will say:
"As was expected because of the severe
strain upon the institutions last week,
the official statement of the New York
Associated Banks made a very unfavor
able exhibition, although so far as re
gards the percentage of reserve to de
posits this was 21.3 per cent against 20
per cent in 1X.'3. The banks gained J16.
0.000 cash ' from the Sub-Treasury,
through disbursements by that office, but
the drain to the" interior was so great as
to much more than offset such an
amount; - hence the net loss of cash, as
officially shown, was $30,601,800. Deposits
were Increased by $28,254,000, and the re
serve requirements were thereby aug
mented $7,003,723. Adding this to the loss
of .cash made $37,605,525, and the decrease
in the reserve was J38.S38.825.
"Loans were expanded $60,741,500, Indicat
ing that the demands upon the banks for
accommodation must have been enorm
ous; response thereto appears, however,
to have been llbetl, for, had such relief
been withheld, the situation doubtless
would have been even more disturbing.
"It seems quite probable that the state
ment of this week wilr show much im
provement as the result of the arrivals
of gold from Europe, which will begin to
be imported by Wednesday; and also be
cause of the utilization of other measures
"It ma- be Interesting to note the
changes in Associated Banks conditions
in the week June 17, 1893, when the crisis
of that year affected the statement so
seriously and the outlook was so unfavor
able as to compel a resort to the Issue
of Clearing-House loan certificates and to
other redief devices. Compared with the
exhibit of the previous week June 12, 1S93
-deposits were reduced $19,389,200; legal
tenders, $7,430,500; and specie, $1,310,900,
making the net loss of cash $8,741,400. The
surplus reserve was, however, reduced
only $3,644,100, and the banks held an ex
cess reserve of $8,776,800. Then, as now,
the bank conditions were influenced by
heavy shipments of currency to the West,
which section was in greatest need of as
sistance: the contraction of loans
amounted to but $3,699,800, indicating that
response to local needs was fairly liberal."
MORE COIX IS TURNED LOOSE
Government Furnishes Means to Entf
Flurry In Sun Francisco.
SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 2. The United
States Government came to the assist
once of the San Francisco banks yester
day, announcing, through telegrams, that
it had taken steps to expedite the ship
ment of coin to the Pacific Coast. This
action was the result of an appeal made
by local financiers to Secretary Cortel
you, of the Treasury Department. A vast
sum, said to be In the neighborhood of
Jlo.OOO.OuO, is to be transferred by tele
graph for the use of the San Francisco
The Government fias coin in San Fran
cisco to the amount of $343,000,000. Of
this sum. $303,000,000 is stored In the mint
and J4O.O00.O0O in the sub-Treasury. An ef
fort was first made to Induce the Gov
ernment to allow the local banks to de
posit thelr Federal bonds with the sub
Treasury here and obtain coin In return,
but the authorities in Washington re
fused to consent to this plan.
An arrangement was effected later,
however, by which similar results may
be achieved by operating it through the
New York sub-Treasury. The arrange
ment entered into between the San Fran
cisco savings banks and the Government
provides that such Federal bonds as the
local banks have on deposit in New York
may be turned into the sub-Treasury
there. The New York sub-Treasury will
then wire the San Francisco sub-Treasury
to pay out an equivalent In coin.
The first of this money was transferred
this morning. , ,
Dispatches from Washington approving
of this arrangement were received by the
local savings banks too late to permit
them to take advantage of the offer yes
Thus with millions of dollars in the
vaults of the Mint and sub-treasury and
millions on the way from New York, the
financial situation Is rapidly clearing, and
by Monday it is expected that the flurry
will have spent itself and the necessity
for the Berles of holidays proclaimed by
the Governor will have passed. None of
the banks has observed the holiday, pay
ing money to depositors and receiving
new accounts, but the action of the Gov
ernor has had a wholesome effect in al
laying excitement and preventing the cre
ation of a feeling of unrest. All the banks
have plenty of money, and none is in the
least worried by the situation.
PAYING WAGES IX CHECKS
Pittsburg Doing Business With New
Style of Money.
PITTSBURG, Nov. 2. The checking or
scrip system decided upon here yesterday
was in general use today by the members
of the Clearing-Houfce Association. It Is
believed that business men and employes
will accept the plan In the light that it
will insure the steady operation of the
great industrial establishments of the
An exceptionally heavy rush of busi
ness is being accepted here, and the
money situation threatened serious inter
ruption. The enormous payrolls, about
$7,000,000, had to be met, and much anx
iety was prevalent among bankers. Under
the system that began today employers
will pay In checks of $5, $10, $15 and $20
denominations, ordinary sums being satis
fied with cash. The landlord, grocer and
butcher are expected to accept these
checks the same as currency.
The First National Bank, of this city,
has made arrangements for the importa
tion of $500,000 in gold bullion of American
eagles from London. This is the first en
gagement of gold for Import ever made
by a Pittsburg institution. The shipment
will arrive on the Lusitania next week.
Employes Lend to Employer.
CHICAGO, Nov. 2. Payroll worries are
not among the cares today of Henry G.
Dawson, manufacturer of mantels. A
score of his own employes, all working
men, yesterday surprised him by offering
him enough currency, about $6000. to carry
him through two paydays. If Mr. Daw
"son should need more money before the
flurry in the market is a tiling of history,
the men on tho other side of his desk
will bring more. Last week Mr. Dawson
made several deposits which would have
carried him through If he had kept them
in his own safe.
Money Easier in Loudon.
LONDON, Nov. 2. --Money was iji bet
tor supply in the market today, owing
to dividend disbursements. Discounts
were, firmer on fears of further gold
exports to New York. Trading in
stocks was dull and prices finished the
week with an easy tendency, the re
newed depressions in Americans, the
uncertain position of New York and
the fears of further exportation of
gold prompting realisations, under
which securities, after hardening from
the lower levels, again dropped. Cop
per shares were firm.

TRENTON. N. J., Nov. 2. (Special.)
Conservative estimates, based on re
ports received from county commit
tees and other reliable authorities in
all parbs of the state, Indicate that
New Jersey will next week elect John
Franklin Port, Republican, as Gov
ernor, return that party to complete
control of the Legislature and elect
Republicans to the most Important of
fices in the different cities and counties.
Judge Fort will probably be elected

Open Sunday State Issue.
Wit hthe' possible exception of Hud
son County, where there is a popular
demand for increased railroad taxa
tion, the "open Sunday" or excise ques
tion Is the paramount issue throughout
the state, all other questions having
been retired to the background -J the
Democratic movement In favor i- le-
gallzing the sale of liquors on Sundays,
and the opposition to this plan which
has been manifested by all church and
temperance people, irrespective of
creed or party affiliations. Judge
Fort has made his fight on this prop
osition, declaring himself in favor of
the Bishop's bill and its enforcement
and against all "open Sunday move
ments. Frank S. Katzenbacii, Jr., tne
Democratic gubernatorial candidate,
has persistently refused to commit
hinwelf on the Issue, but every one
knows just Where his party stands on
the subject. At the same time Mr.
Katzenbach has lost prestige every
where because of his lack of courage
to lace the issue. For this he has been
condemned by all of tne influential
papera of the state.
The German citizens of the state
have become estranged from the
Democrats by reason of the latter's
position in the "open Sunday" question.
The Democrats have been claiming that
the Germans are demanding that the
saloons be opened on Sundays. This Is
resented by the better class of Ger
mans. who insist that they are law
abiding and respectable and have no
desire as a class for the opening of the
saloons on Sunday. Only in the for
eign colonies of the larger cities In the
northern part of the state is there any
considerab. sentiment in favor of open
Sunday. The country districts are a
unit against any change in the present
liquor laws of the state.
Estimate of Pluralities.
. Based on the Iaest reports and
most conservative estimates the lineup
of the counties will be as follows,
the figure being Republican plurali
ties with exceptions indicated:
Atlantic, 3500; Bergen, 1200; Burling

Somerset, 1000; Sussex, 1000; Union,
1000; Warren, 1000.
(Democratic). . '
Some of the Republican leaders be
lieve that Fort would be elected by a.
plurality greater than wag given Gov
ernor Stokes three years ago were it
not for the financial disturbance In
New Y'ork during the past week. Gov

NEW YORK, Nov. 2. One of the
quietest campaigns that New York City
has experienced in many years prac

state office is to be voted for. that
the Republican and Democratic parties

Wliile Wall Street Sacrifices Stocks
to Get Money, They Build Barns
to Store Their Crops and
Kef use to Contract.
LINCOLN, Neb., Nov. 2. (Special.)
The financial troubles in New York, with
their later echo in the West, have not
alarmed the farmers of Nebraska. For
the past decade farmers of this state have
disposed of their crops by cantract be
fore they were harvested, but this year
conditions are changed.
During the week word came to Lincoln
from all sections of the state to the ef
fect that the farmers were building barnB
to store away the corn they were soon
to harvest. They say they will hold their
grain for higher prices, although as high
as 48 cents is now being offered. Some
of them, of course, will sell a part of
their yield within the next few
weeks; some of them will sell their
entire crop, while a few have already
contracted for the disposal of their grain.
These, however, are in the minority.
A majority of the farmers, local grain
men say, will hold their crop for a higher
figure and some expect 76 cents a bushel.
They feel assured they will be offered
that price before Spring.
The Nebraska farmers are contented
and prosperous. The times are good,
even if the corn crop was a little short
and the wheat and oats crops a little
shorter. Many' of them have their bins
filled with wheat and oats, and some of
them have a liberal amount of old corn
on hand. Grainmen. declare they are un
able to buy, because farmers will not sell
their wheat at present prices, and as to
contracting the corn even for as late as
December delivery, the growers will not
hear of It. Some of them 8Jld some
wheat earlier in the Fall at the topmost
figure, receiving as high as 85 cents a
bushel, but that was when the market

That old cloud which had its silvery lining in '03
has a golden background now. The fog may be
a little thick at the present time, but in' a few days
we will have forgotten all about it. Be cheerful,
don't worry about the money you have in the bank.
The banks are all right so is the Denny Dulin. Did
you ever stop to think what the miner has done for
this country? During the panicky times of '93 the
suppljr of gold was less than six hundred million
dollars. Today it is in excess of one billion, five
hundred millions. Nevada alone will increase this
supply by five hundred millions of dollars during
the next ten years. Are you going to get some of it ?
Here is the latest from the Denny-Dulin mine:
Assay by Garvin Cyanide Co.:
Gold, 17.56 oz. per ton; value ...$363.00
Silver, 72.44 oz. per ton ; value 47.09
Copper, 15.8 per cent; lead, 6 per cent.
Total value, per ton, $457.47
We are not going to try to make you believe that
we have several feet of this kind of ore for we
haven't. This assay was from ore selected from a
lot we received from the mine this week. It is the
highest returns we have ever received. There are
possibilities and probabilities where you find such
ore as this, although we are very well satisfied with
the $75 grade.
Here is what the Goldfield Review has to say of
the Gold Mountain mines:
"Gold Mountain district is fast becoming famous.
A vast amount of development work is being done
and there are many paying properties in the district.
"The Bonnie Clair has an enormous amount of
ore blocked out, and the mill is being run day and
night pn high-grade ore.
' ' The Oriental is in high grade, and will soon be
among the shippers.
"The Gold Mountain Carbonate Mining Company
has made a wonderful showing during the Summer.
This property has developed a five-foot vein at a
depth of 160 feet, which gives returns on average
samples of $310.00 per ton. . '
"The Denny-Dulin has recently opened up sensa
tional ore and is in line to swell the list of shippers
and may outrival some of the best properties iu
"Tokio Consolidated has a large tonnage of high
grade ore blocked out.
"The Goldfield Crest has a large acreage and a
wonderful surface showing. Has let leases upon
"A large milling plant is proposed for the
Nevada Empress, which will be run on the com
pany's own ore, besides receiving customs orders.
"The Corbett mine has four 14-mule teams em
ployed hauling ore. They convey 50 tons to the trip.
"The Great Western and Murray mines are both
being actively worked. Ore is being sacked and
