try has ever known.
the time la not far ftwny when the
Unlteil States will become the bank

Investment linnkers lor the coming
year face the greatest opportunity for
service nml profit over known.
Money balances between nations
enn bo settled In the future without
loss by the establishment of nn In
ternational clearing house.
A $260,000,000 pool should be raised
to receive the present financial stress
anil reopen tho stock exchanges.
The ilevelopment of the world's
commerce In tho future wilt depend
upon co-operation Instead of compe
tition. Carrying with them confident prophe
cies, made by great bunkers from nil
over tho United States, that the period
of depression In this country has pj fined
' the low ebb, and that alt Indications prom-
Ise In the Immediate future a period of
financial and commercial prosperity which
will surpass anything this country ever
has known, 400 bankers, who were dclo
Kates to the third annual convention of
the Investment Bankers' Association of
America in this city, left for their homes
this morning.
Optimism was the dominant note sound
ed throughout tho dally sessions of the
convention. And it was this spirit of
hopefulness for the future, this belief
, that confidence Is being rapidly restored
and that the tlmo of economic unrest Is
past, which the bankers took with thorn
to npply In their business.
Tho final business session was held yes
terday afternoon, but nt the banquet last
night financial men of nntlonul promi
nence spoke and gave further support to
the belief that flnanco and commerce will
soon resume their normal conditions.
Sir George Patsh, of London, England,
was tho most notable speaker of the even
ing. He expressed his appreciation of the
expressions of friendship and good will
which have greeted him on every Bide In
tills country, and then plunged directly
into a discussion of the present trial Eng
land Is suffering.
His address, however, was not without
x thought of confidence, for he said.
"Great tin will be the cost of this war
to England, wo hopo to pay for It out
of our own savings."
Sir George gave tho bankers assurance
that Knglnnd would not unload American
securities on the U nlted States with
the opening of the stock exchanges. He
added, however, that she would prob
ably require the payment of short-term
railway and other notes.
Tho speaker told of the wonderful ef
forts made by Ills Government to over
coma the great difficulties which giew
out of the emergency of the war. Tho
greatest of these difficulties, he said, was
the breaking down of the world's credit
at a time when the "world's bills drawn
on London amounted to 400,000,000
sterling. The financial world no less
than the English people will welcome,
he said, the expiration of tho mora
torium. The financial obligation resting upon
(America was brought plainly before the
bankers when he said, no a parting word:
"It Is for yoi gentlemen to nurse credit,
restoro confidence, then the people will
borrow In a normal way. It Is for you
to Inducu Investment and restore pros
perity." Politics, too, camo In for Its sharo of
attention at the hands of tho banquet
speakers. Tho stamp of disapproval was
placed on the financial legislation of tho
"Wilson Administration and the wide
spread Republican victory on November 3
was hailed as a significant forecast for
returning prosperity.
Among the other speaker were Con
gressman George 8. Graham, of this city,
nnd Scott Bullitt, of Louisville; George
D. Caldwell, of Chicago, retiring president
of the association.
Seated at the speakers' table were Sam
uel Iteu, president of the Pennsylvania
Railroad; E. T. Stotesbury. of the Phila
delphia and Reading and the Morgan
firm: John Dlunt, Jr., Robert K, Cassatt,
JJ. IV. Clark. Jay Cooke, Id, George Dixon,
George It. Frazler, Alba IJ. Johnson, pres
ident of the Daldwin Locomotive Works;
W. A. Law. Director Korrls, of the De

C. Stuart Patterson, Henry Tatnall and a
number of others.

Charles Weeghman Will Go
to Cincinnati to Have Talk
With Taft Regarding the
Big Deal.
CHICAao, 111 , Nov. H.-Charles
Weeghman will go to Cincinnati next
week and at that time he will sign tht
papers that will result In a change In
ownership of the Cubs. Weeghmnn Is
going to Cincinnati to talk with Charles
P, Taft.
Pan Johnson, American League presi
dent, who knows the Inside workings of
organized baseball ns well, or better,
than any other man In the business, ex
pects the olliclal announcement of tho
Cub sale to be made Immediately fol
lowing Weeghman's visit to Cincinnati.
Denials were forthcoming today con
cerning the reported purchase of the
We it Side club. Such were expected, ns
the Federal club president did not an
nounce officially that he had bought the
Cub team. However, this Information
was obtained from a reliable source. The
signing of the papers Is merely a mat
ter of formality.
Charles P. Taft is the man who can
dispose of the Cubs, despite stories to the
effect that Charles W, Murphy still has a
"finger In the pie." Ban Johnson asserted
today that Taft could dispose of the Cuba
to whom he pleased, and when he pleased
Taft Is said to still owe Murphy a sum
of money as a result of having taken
over Murphy's stock In the club last Feb
ruary, but that item Is a mere trifle In
the way of putting over the deal, Taft
owns the Cubs' ball park, as well as the
ground on which the Phillies play in
Philadelphia. The Weeghman and Ward
Interests are the ones to be looked after
by the National Leaguers. The Wards
probably are associated with Weeghman

Former aide to the- Commandant
at the Philadelphia Navy Yard, who
i.i jji e
was supposed to have ended his life
and. who, according to dispatches
from Washington, is alive, and sus
pected of being a deserter.
Lieutenant Commander A. B. Keatltg,
former nldo to the commandant nt tho
Philadelphia Navy Tnttl nnd one of the
moit popular nunl ofllors ever sta
tioned In thli city. Is alive, nccoidlng
to dispatches received today from Wash
ington. Keating dhnppenied from tho battle
ship Arl.nnsns while the vessel was nt
Vera Cruz about two months ngo. Sub
sequently notice of his death was given
In tho service papers.
Detalli of Kcitlng'M dlnppentance
nnd of his present wherenboutu nro still i
shrouded In mystert. At tho time of
his disappearance the first stories were
ho hnd strojed Into tho Mexican Unci
nnd had been raptured nnd that he had
fallen oer the side- of the ship nnd had
been drowned.
Later It was Intlmnted the supposed
dentil was suicidal. No verification of
clthei repot t has over been mado nnd
heretofore nil cffoits to clear up the
caso have been fiultless.
Ad!ccs hae now been recelod nt
Washington, howecr, to tho effect that1
Keating had beon ordered to remain In
his cabin pending the nctlo'n of a navnl
court-martial Thtough the aid of an
other navnl ofTlcer Keating escaped and
disnppcnied. it Is raid. Tho other man
Is now snld to be under nrrest nnd will
bo tried for giving Commander Keating
opportunity to escape.
- No further action Is expected to be
taken by tho naval authorities. Tho
naval registry will carry the name of
Commander Keating for a certain tlmo
ns "absent without ntiihorlty, where
aboMts unknown." He then will be
dropped ns n deserter.
When Keating succeeded In escaping
from the ship It wns said he wroto n
note Indicating he was about to take his
life for the double purposo of halting
pursuit and shielding the ft lend who Is
snld to have helped him to get away
from the Arkansas.
Nn olliclal announcement of Keatlng's
death was mndo by tho Navy Depart
ment. In spite of this. Announcement
wns mnde.howcver, by tho Bureau of
Navigation, on the strength of which the
death notice was given In the service
Journals. The commander wns aid to
the commandnnt nt League Island until
about a year ago. He Is 37 years old
and married.
Keating was a flmlllar figure at so
cial affairs In this city, both naval and
otherwise. He was looked upon nn one
of the most popular of the younger of
ficers In the service, nnd tho announce
ment of hlB disappearance came as some
what of a shock to his friends. No de
tails of the charges made against him
hnve been given out, but It is de
clared In dispatches from Washington
that thev nro of a serious nature.
Commandnnt Benson, at the Navy Yard,
today declined to discuss the case of Lieu
tenant Commander Keating. He declared
that ho knew no moro about tho case
than ho had rend In the newspapers and
rumorj. He would not explain tho nature
of tho rumors.
"Commander Keating Is no longer con
nected with this yard." said the Com
mandant. "I read the notico of his death
In tho service papers, and that Is all I
know of It."

Hotel Employes, at Annual
Dance, Display Their
Usual Tenacity and See
Things to a Finish.
Tht Bell Hops' annual ball got away to
a bad start last night. Dancing was
scheduled to begin at 9 o'clock, but Presi
dent Gompers was .holding a parade on
Brcnd street, and It was after midnight
when the swirl started.
Eddlo F Hnnlin, who, in blue cloth and
gold buttons, does the head bell hopping
at the Hotel Vcndlg smoothed down the
ruffles of his up-to-date dress shirt,
kicked the wrinkles out of his dress
trousers, flicked cigarette ashes off his
pumps and announced around about 11
o'clock that he nlways was in favor of the
bell 1ioh fotmlng a union. Hanlln's words

maker, he Is also president of the ball.
Tho subject was forgotten When the
parade had pasiedi for the bcllbojn nnd
the hotel maids and all their friends be
gan arriving. They came In tnxlcabs In
most cases, and had a policeman assigned
right In front of the Eagles Temple on
Spring Garden street to see that trafllc
laws were observed.
It was a real ball. President Hanlln
dropped his care-worn look and smiled

John F. Lewis, Admiralty
Lawyer, Does Not Believe
Germany Will Interfere
With Belgian Mercy Ships
An answer to the must-dlsciused ques
tion regarding tho International legal
status of mercy ships lias been given by
John Frederick Lewis, Ihe admiralty
lawjer, of this city.
Jtr. Lewis, who has probably arguco
mntP International questions before the
Admiralty Court than any other lawyet
In Philadelphia, maintains while food u
n. "conditional contraband," tho fact thai
It Is iti be supplied to tho citizens of
Belgium nnd not the army precludes the
possibility of It being regarded as a direct
contraband. Ho does not believe Ger
many will provent tho cargo of the
Thclmn from reaching Its destination.
Mr. .Lewis said:
"When ono country Is at war with an
othei tho theory of ItUernntlonnl law is
that every citizen of that country Is an
enemy with every citizen of the other,

"Aid or comfort may bo given not only
In the ihapcof actual war materials, but
in tho shape of actual war materials, but
or may not bo applied to a military pur
pose, but which nevertheless are neces
sary for tho belligerent to got. War
like stores nro Known ns absolute con
traband, or "contraband of war," to
use the old phrase.
"Materials which are not distinctly mill
tary but which may be applied to a mili
tary use nro known as conditional con
traband. Food, for instance. Is needed
by soldiers as well as by Chilians, nnd
food, thereforo, may be a great 'com
fort' to the enemy.
"In modem wnrfnrc, as In ancient,
notably In the cae of sieges, starvation
Is often more effective in overcoming the
enemy thnn acttiallv killing or wounding
him. Hence, supplying nn enemy with
fond Is rendering him material assistance.
"These nre general principles, but will

certain thnt no objection will seriously
be made by Geimnny to such relief. Tho

Philadelphia Shipyards May Con
struct Three.
The Cramp shipyards In Philadelphia
will build at least two and possibly three
of tho next giant torpeda destroyers au
thorized by the last Congress. Though
tho Navy Department refuses to disclose
the successful bidders until next week. It
Is asserted the Philadelphia concern will
probably receive a contract.
These boats will be the latest type of
destroyer over built In the United States
and will have nn equipment of anti
aircraft guns In addition to their bat
teries of 4-Inch rnpld-llre rifles and tor
pedo tubes. Specifications call for a

liam Cramp & Son was the lowest, with
an estimate of JS(7.000 each for two and
$831,000 each for three of tho destroyers.
