ROME, Sept. 81. According to the

Peary's claim to having discovered toe
North Pole.
In hie dispatch to- the New York
Times the explorer states that April-9.
having accomplished the six atagea he
had planned, he was favored with an
opening in the clouds which permitted
him to take astronomical observations.
From these be established hia position
as latitude 89:67.
Signer Faeeia points out, however
that unquestionably accurate astrono
mical calculations show that with the
horizon at 89:57 the moon could not be
eeen at the time indicated bv Com
mander Peary, because from mlddav,
April 5, Paris time, or 6 o'clock, central
standard time, the declination of the
moon became negative, that la to say
the moon was below the equator, which
is tha natural horisoa of the pole.
Forestry Service May Bo Put Under
Interior Department.,
Washington, September 11. As a re
rait of the Piaebot-Ballingcr row, the
administration may later determine to
recommend the transfer of the forest
service from the department of agrieul
tare to the department of the interior.
Such a change caa oaly be made by act
of congress, and it probably would call
for considerable pressure from the preei-n
dent la order to get the aeeessay as
thority, especially If Oifford Pinehot ia
permitted to rental n ss chief forester.
The forest service, in the opinion of
most wee tern men in congress, Is mis
placed hi the department of esYtenl
tnre. It aas nothing in common with
the other bareaus of that department
but ass mneh in common with the sen

President Taft Declares Party Is
Bound Hy PlaoL
Prosldorrt Jya Government Haa Now
Reached Stags Where It Mut
Be MoreTThan Pellca Tores. ,
afilwaokee. Wis., Sept 18. Presi
dent Taft devoted Us principal address
In Milwaukee at the Bute Fair
groonda, yesterday to the subject of
postal saving! banks, which be strong
ly endorsed before a large and en thus i-'
astie gathering that overflowed the
grandstand. - The president said that
the postal savings bank plank In the
Repablican platform bound everybody
who called himself a Republican.
"If they do not like a plank In a
platform," said Mr. Taft "or if they
don't like the platform itself, they
to be flepeblieans or they are
Republicans with an exception, and
that Indicates n free and enlightened
and discriminating people. But I am
hero to uphold the doctrine of postal
savings banks because I believe they
will fill a long-felt want hi this coon
try. In the first place It is said the
postal savings bank is a very paternal
institution; that It has a leaning to
ward Socialism state Socialism and
tost It imi puses to take the banking
boslnces oot of the bands of private
parsons and pot 1ft Into those of the
government. No, I am not a Socialist,
and I am net a paternalist, and I am
not In favor of having the government
do anything that private citisens ean
do as well or better; bat there are con
ditions. Ws have passed bevond the
time of what they called the 'Laiases
Pairs' school, which believed that the
government ought to do nothing bat
ran the police force, and we do not rec
ognise the necessity for the Interfer
ence of the governmeit becaaos it has
great power sad gkott veeouieee be
hind it, and bacaose sometimes it eon
stand the lack of an immediate retain
on capital to help ont We did it In
oar Pacific railroads. Ws have done
it in s greet many different waya, and
in this particular postal savings bank
business the government la especially
fitted to do what any system of private
bankers ean do. -"The
great nsefalosas of the postal
savings banks lies la the groat encour
agement to thrift on the part of those
who are just wavering In the ' balance
whether tbey shall esve the money or
ass it because they don't know where
they ean put It safely. -
"Canada baa the postal saviors bank.
and what la tha result along the border
in too Northwest Yon And Americans
going up to the border and snaking de
posits in those savings banks. WbyT
Because tbey have thekuarantee of the
Canadian government' gems'
President Taft said the smvernment
had issued upward of $700,000,000 t
per cent bonds of the United States
and floated them at par, at I per sent
a nttie
" We did it by getting the banks Into
a corner so tbey had to have, under the
soens government security, and so
they were obliged to buy those 1 per
cent bonds, be said. In closing, Pres
ident Taft said : - -
"We are mokina forward I bona
with confidence, to n readjustment of
our whole financial system. Certainly
it needs it, and It baa been sumatod
that the savings bank might well await
that I am bound to aav that I don't

It seems to sac that, cam system can
stand by Itself, end If ws adopt the
savings banks tbey will easily be work
ed into a general svstem of booking.
because the savings banks wfll famish

Chicago Investigations Promise Hugs
. Scandal in County Affairs. :
Chicago, Sept 80. A gigantic sob
piracy for the "fixing" of grand
juries of Cook county, extending back
over a year and culminating La the
fraudulent certification of names for
the October grand jury, was revealed
today, when State's Attorney Wayman
secured bench wanants for John J.
Holland, secretary of the Cook county
jury eomminion; Jury Commissioner
Willis J. Baybura, and Nicholas A. Mar
tin, Alderman Michael Kenna's secre
tary, oa a charge of tampering with
The warrants were lamed today by
Judge Jesse A. Baldwin, of the circuit
The charge against the three is that
they conspired to' draw names of grand
jurors in a manner other than that re
quired by law.
Coming at the height of the trial of
Inspector MeCann for .alleged grafting,
the newa of the action based on alleged
tampering with the jury lists caused
great excitement in legal and political
circles. The complaint on which the
warrants were, issued were drawn up
by a special agent of the state's attor
ney, who has been investigation: the
jury-drawing methods for weeks.
Under the state law the names of
prospective grand jurors are selected
at random from a sealed box contain
ing 'the names of 1500 citizens who
have been examined for jury service
by the jury commissioners and their
fitness certified. A similar method is
prescribed for petit jury lists.
French Lace Manufacturers Hard Hit

Aa a direct result of the 70 nor sent

States has marked up on this clam of
