tCOItltESrONDEJCCE Or TOE DISrATCH.l
Indianapolis, July 21. The resigna
tion of Frank Bancroft as manager of the
local ball team, and the appointment of Jack
Glasscock to take his place, has been the
chief baseball topic of the week. By many
the retirement of Bancroft is considered a
.jjood thing for the Hoosiers, while others re
gret to see him go. There is also much
speculation as to the wisdom of placing
Glasscock in charge, but, in view of the fact
that Bancroft has shown no special ability,
and has bad poor success with the team, the
majority seems to be in favor of a change,
and tbo new manager will be given every en
conragement by both the press and public
The manner in which Mr. Bancroft left the
service of the rlub placed him In rather
am unfavorable light, and lost him some of
Us warmest supporters. The first indication
that the local people knew that he intended to
resign was when they read it In the papers, he
having given it out in Washington, from where
it was telegraphed all over the country.
BKVRH FELT HUKT.
Thonch these dpatcbes were sent on Friday
i night of last week. President Brush did not
hear a word from Bancrort until Monday even
ing, when his letter was received. Brush was
very much disgusted with Bancroft's peculiar
wiy of doing business, and was not slow about
accepting bis resignation. He felt that tho
proper thing for Bancroft to have done was to
aiotify the directory and not the Associated
3ress agents. He, however, says that he has
Implicit faith in the late manager's hon
esty of purpose, and thinks be did the
best be could. Bancroft's chief fault
Is his desire to talk, and since the Hoosiers
have been doing so poorly he did a great deal
in that line, much of it being foolish and harm
ltd to the interests of the club.
A HAKD LOSER.
He was very much opposed to the classifica
tion system and talked of it freely among bis
' players. He is a'hard loser and would often do
things while broken up on account of defeat
that he would not have done under other cir
cumstances. With a winning team Bancroft
would be a success, but with a poor one ho
could not be called a good manager. It Is his
intention to quit baseball. He remained with
the team until the close of the New York
series, when Glasscock took cbarce.
President Brush will go to Chicago to meet
tho club and gUe the new manager
a good start. The arrangement with
Glasscock is for the season, ana it Is thought
that he will make an extra effort to pull the
team out of its present rut. It is more than
likely that Glasscock will get better wcrk out
of the team than Bancroft did. for the reason
that the players have frequently expressed a
lcsire to have him placed in charge, and said
ehey would do all they could for their captain.
The only thing tn be feared is that he will not
tie able to keep the men straight off the nId.
Zt he succeeds in doing this be will, no doubt,
be a success in other respects. The manage
ment will give him all possible support and will
Jrobably leave tbe team entirely in his charge,
t will be remembered that the 'place was of
fered Glasscock last spring, and he wanted it,
buta question of salary interfered and Bancroft
AN ABSURD REPOBT.
The absurd report that tbe Indianapolis
players were raising a row In Boston because
they were not paid off was greatly magnified.
This report led to another to tho effect that tbe
clnb was not in good financial condition. This
'was also absurd and calls tor no extended con
tradiction. Tbe men were not paid off in Bos
ton simply because the club was to be home on
tbe 25tb and the management thought the men
could get along until that time. Manager Ban
croft was instructed tn advance the players all
the money they needed and did o. That was
all there was in it. Tbe club is not required to
"pay while the team is awav from home and the
management has been doing so simplvtoac
commodate the men. President Brush has not
jet expressed an opinion of the Spalding
scheme and will not until ho looks the matter
over thoroughly. I think, however, that it will
cot inert the approval of the Hoosier Presi
dent. He is for classification first, last and all
the time, and as Spalding's plan interferes
with his pet scheme it will probably not be fa
vorably considered. A. Q. OVEXS.
ABOUT THE IiABIES.
Gloom at Their Home McKean Mny Play
(SPECIAL COnRESrOXDEXCX or the dispatch, i
Cleveland. July 20. Gloom has settled
like a dark, thick cloud over the Forest City.
"Yoo can cut it with a knife. No need to ask
"wbyT" The record of tbe Cleveland ball club
for the past two weeks speaks for itself. Tbey
liad climbed so high in the League race, and
aroucdrnch fond hopes and aspirations that
the sudden decline was heartrending in tho ex
treme. And. as usual, those who talked loud
est, and had figured them out tare pennant
winners, were the first to cry "I told you so"
when disaster came. Local patron can take
defeat neither gracefnllv nor philosophically.
They are, not stoical. And this, after
their ft years' experience in the Asso
ciation. They do not take into consideration
tbe act that the boys have been playing the
Bt'ongest club in tbe country, and away from
jiome at that, nor do they make allowance for
some very "jellow" umpiring, which has mate
rially assisted in the downfall, but instead they
throw np their bands like a tenderfoot and cry.
"They have struck the tobog." If said tobog
gan 11 anywhere near as long as the faces in
this section the club has got about a mile
further to go. 9
But wait until the boys return home and win
a few games. Then all will be changeiL Tbe
erstwhile ghoulish slide will be transformed
into a magnificent roller coaster on which the
boys will be going up, up. up, and the loud ho
nannas from League Park will float out o'er
Lake Erie's plarid bosom as before.
Shortstop JIcKean did not complete the
Eastern trip with tbe club. He appeared upon
our streets early in the week. Suspended with
out pay for insubordination tells the storr.
McKean is a great player, and his services are
needed at the present time, but discipline must
be maintained at whatever cost. Better a nine
of "misfits" under perfect discipline than an
aggregation nt stars with insubordination in
tbe ranks. McKean will probably resume his
position with the club Monday.
Everybody was glad to hear abontTebeau's
great hit in New York. Not merely because It
was a home run. but because be got S10O for
knocking the ball over a fence which the vain
Gothamites imagined no one but Roger
Conner could do. Then "Patsy," to show
it was not an accident, a sort of "Gentle
Jeems" episode, occurring but once in a de
cade or so of years, rapped out another in
Philadelphia, and was presented by Manager
Loltus, a la Davidson, with a 100 check on a
gravel bank. There is a difference in the way
tou do these things. Loftus appreciated the
hit and presented the check In a manner that
was not an insult. Davidson's ways are dif
ferent. Gilks Is playing at short in McKean's ab
sence.'and is putting np a great game of ball.
"Bob" is a strong favorite In this city, and
everybody Is glad to see him on the field aga.in
after his protracted siege at warming benches.

The Giant Will Protest.
New York, July 21. Tbe New York club will
protest tbe first Boston-Indianapolis game
played at Boston on Wednesday, which Boston
won, on tbe ground that the shortening of tbe
game to six innings bv agreement was illegal.
It is contended that tbe game cannot be short
enc 1 In view of tbe rules, and under President
Young's ruling some years ago that when two
games arc played in one afternoon the first one
must consist of nine innings. If this is sus
tained Boston will lose a victory, a very Impor
tant matter in this close race.
Cannot flet Olnsscock.
BpsTOif, July 3L The Boston Baseball Club
has sold the release of Pitcher Sowden to tbe
Pittsburg club, and bas offered the Indlanap-
gjis dull a money consideration, or two of'lfs
players, or the release of Glasscock. The re
ply received was that Glasscock would not be
I released tinder any consideration.
Opinions of the League Presidents on the
Now that there bas been time for the officials
of the various League clubs to think over the
plan of Mr. Spalding almost all have expressed
an opinion regarding it Tbe general opinion
is favorable toward It.
President Beach, of Philadelphia, thinks the
plan a good one, and one that will work well.
Mr. Reach says, however, that the plan will
need considerable pruning to put it into prac
President Robinson, of Cleveland, Is in favor
of the plan, with one or two modifications.
President Hewitt, of Washington, thinks the
plan impracticable. Mr. Hewitt believes that
tbe only solution of the difficulty Is the equal
division of receipts.
President Nimick. of Pittsburg, said: "There
arc many good features in Mr. Spalding's
project. 1 am in favor of doing away entirely
with the buying and selling of players. If we
cannot do this, however, I think the next best
thing would be to give the player a fixed per
cent of tbe purchase money, say aoout one
quarter, letting the other quarter to the asso
ciation and the half to the club. About tbe
requisition for players from the minor leagues
I am not so sure. It might be a good thing for
the big organizations, but I would rather not
express an opinion on that at present. Thero
Is one thing in Its tavor: It would be an in
centive to the players to do tbelr best, in order
to be drafted in tbe bigger leagues, and the
clubs and associations would receive a cash
equivalent. The suggestion for a Board of Ap
peals, a Supreme court, as it were, is a good
idea, and I would strongly favor it."
President Brush, of Indianapolis, bas no
definite opinion to offer. Nor has President
Soden, of Boston. New York, however, is in
favor of tbe plan. Altogether, it seems as If
a big change-in the League constitution will be
made before next season opens.

his delivery. Chamberlain's two-bagger and a
couple of sacrifice hits gave the visitors their
only run in the closing inning of the game.

A CHANGE OF MANAGEMENT.
The Lonisville Directors Appoint n Nsw
Captain nnd Manager,
israelii, txxxoraii TO THE DISrATCH.J
Louisville, July 2L A very important
change in tbe club, which was decided jipon at
tbe stockholders' meeting Friday night, was
announced to the players this afternoon. Jnst
before the game wolf called tbe men into the
dressing room and there told them that ho had
been relieved of tbe captaincy, and that Dan
Shannon had been appointed bis successor.
It was somewhat of a surprise
to all the players, and to none
more, so than to Shannon himself.
That the change Is an exceedingly wise more
on tbe part nf the minagement is Indisput
able. Shannon is an experienced man for the
place, baring acted as captain of every club in
which be ever played; he Is popular with tbe
players, is a cool, tricky player, well up on all
points of tbe game, and is. m every way quail
tied to fill the position successfully. The mere
fact of Wolfs playing in the outfield was a
great drawback to bli effectiveness as a cap
tain. Like the sensible ball player that he is,
be understands the wisdom of the change, and
no man In the team will work harder for Shan
non than bis predecessor. Shannon will re
ceive his instructions to-night and will make
bis debut as captain of tbe club in Tuesday's
game at Baltimore.
It is understood on good authority that the
new manager whom President Parsons bas en
gaged for the Louisville club is Jack Chapman.
Nearly all the directors wanted him and a
proposition was made him. which he eagerly
accepted, saving ne always wanted to come
back here. He cannot quit the Syracuse club
before tbe end of the season and will not come
here until next fall. He wdl have exclusive
control of tbe clnb and receive $2,500 a year. In
tbe meantime a temporary management will
continue. Mr. Robert Brown, city editor of
the Courier Journal, will take charge of the
club on tbe present Eastern trip.
A Scheme Formed by Mannger Hart at Mr.
tSrECIALTELHaltAMTO THE SIBFXTCR.l
Boston. July 2L Manager James Hart, of
the Boston club, has, at the request of A. G.
Spalding, formed a plan to make baseball a
self-supporting pastime, not only in the large
but in the. smaller towns. The plan is this:
A board of control should be created,
with full and supreme power. It should
have three members under salary. The board
should keep records of all games and players,
to be furnished monthly to tbe clubs. It should
name the limits of salary for each league and
approve all contracts between players and
clubs, leagues and umpires. It should decide
all disputes finally. The expenses of the board
and stenographer are estimated at 13,200 per
annum. All clubs under tbe control of the
board should be allowed to reserve players
under contract on a certain date, say
October I, at a price not less than
that received by the playsr under the existing
contract. All players who do not receive the
full amount of salary called for in their con
tract should be granted a release of their claim
to that effect if sustained by the board. Any
club under control should be compelled to
release to any other club under control when
paid a certain price (as shown later,) as a
bonus, provided said player desires to
change his place of service. The bonus
should be uniform in each league, but may be
changed from year to year by the board. The
matter of releasing aud signing of players
should be done wholly by the board. Eigbt
groups of clubs are then given. The National
League, at the bead. Includes Boston, New
York, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Cleveland,
Chicago, Pittsburg and Cincinnati. The
National League should be granted
the right of reservation, but a
player upon being In one club's employ three
years should, if he desires, be granted his un
conditional release. This league should have
no salary limit law. The other leagues should
be graded according to tbe drawing power of
the league, but in no instance should a league
be regraded during a playing season. National
League guarantee to visiting clubs, 200; per
centage, 40: number of games, 146; admission,
SO cents. Hart claims his plan would make the
duns pay, reward worthy players and prevent

THE SEWICKLEYH MAY GO.
A Rnmor That Tbey Will Leave the Connty
It is likely that more clubs will follow the ex
ample of Emswortb, and withdraw from the
County League. Last evening a player in one
of the clubs stated that the officials of tbe
Scwickleys expressed themselves yesterday to
the effect that they are tired of tho business.
The club is losingmoney, and it is probable that
it will not finish tbe season. The Oakland are
also about exhausted.
If the clubs named withdraw from the

THE DETROIT MEETING.
Prospect of nn Extraordinary Opening Day
To-Morrow Big Entries.
Detroit, July 21. Tbe great trotting and
pacing meeting of tbe Detroit Driving Club
commences Tnesday, the 23d Inst. There aro 129
entries in tbe various classes, and as fine a lot
as ever were brought together at a trotting
meeting. Every State in the Union Is repre
sented by one or more flyers. Tbe track Is In
magnificent condition. Electric bells have
been placed in the judges' stand, communicat
ing with the various stables, for the purpose of
calling up the horses, instead of tbe old way of
ringing the bell or tapping tbe drum.
All tbe horses that are entered are here and
more, and everything is in readiness for the
opening dar, which will be railed Blue Ribbon
Day when the gates will be thrown open to the
public free. President Campau will ring up
tbe horses Tuesday at 2 o'clock P. x. for the
first grand event, the 223 trot. There are
three events for the opening day two trots
and a pacing race. Theie aro 13 entries in the
first, 14 in the second, and 14 in tbe third. If
good weather, it will be by long odds the great
est event ever given under the auspices of tbe
Johnston, the great pacer, will give exhibi
tions during the meeting. The great $10,000
stake race, with 15 nominations, takes place
Thursday. Prominent horsemen from all parts
of the country are here. A big attendance at
the meeting is assured. Guy, the great won
der, will give an exhibition ono day during the
Don't Fancy the Mutants.
Hon. James White, tbe great Australian
sportsman, doesn't believe in tbe pari-mutuel
machines. He says: "1 generally bet 500 on
a race, or say 3,000 a day. Take a low compu
tation of 60 days' racing in tbe year, and you
will see that my transactions would be 160,000
per annum. Ten per cent on that business
would bring me 18,000 a year, without any risk
whatever. Pd be glad to bet three per cent.
The machine plays to a dead certainty, whereas
a bookmaker takes heavy risks. He may win
to-day and lose to-morrow. Very few. indeed,
of tbe Australian ring make more than a liv
ing, as a proof of which I need only ask you to
tell mo how many of them are rich men. The
fortunes made by bookmaklng in these colonies
are few and far between."
Will Fight for a Stake.
Young Corcoran, tbe local lightweight pugil
ist, is in receipt of a letter from Dayton, O. The
letter is from some sports of that place, who
state that Bezena, of Cincinnati, will fight Cor
coran at Dayton for a 5150 purse. Tbe Pitts
burger, how ever, declines to fight for anything
less than the purse mentioned and a stake of
200 a side. If these terms are agreed to Corco
ran will light the Cincinnati man to a finish.
Burgess and Connelly for Glory nnd 81,000.
Detroit, July 21. Jack Burgess, the well

cently defeated Ed Smith, of England, at Den
ver, arrived here this evening for the pnrposo
of training for a fight with Johnny Connelly, of
Ohio, for 51,000 a side. The articles were signed
last week, and tbe fight is to take place August

SPECIAL TELIOBAM TO Till DISrATCH.1
Johnstown, July 21. The question of
getting rid of the drunken loafers around
Johnstown is every day becoming more
troublesome. Saturday was payday and
the workmen nearly all had some money,
and having no homes to go, they spent their
time in the saloons treating the loafers that
crowded in and getting drunk themselves.
Various plans have been suggested to get
rid of the nuisance of drunken men, but
they have all failed. There is no place of
any account to confine prisoners; hence it is
useless for the police to attempt to lock
them up for simple drunkenness. The ef
fort to" make them work on streets has
failed because there is no authority
for it, and hence they aro
allowed to go unmolested unless they com
mit some serious crime. As has been stated,
a strong effort is being made by Captain
Hamilton and some of the burgesses to
have Judge Johnston revoke the licenses for
the time being, but the saloon keepers ob
ject, as they say they have paid their
license fees and claim the right to sell
liquor so long as they keep within the
bounds of the law. A strong temperance
sentiment is being created among the better
classes, but it does not have much effect
The people here look with suspicion on
the statements made by Secretary J. B.
Kremer while in the town on Saturday.
They fear that Beaver intended to make a

Wheelino, July 21. Specials irom the

give the following complete list of the
drowned, so far as known. It is thought
that the death list will be much larger
when the districts now cut off from the

to property cannot be estimated at present.
Hundreds of people lost all they possessed
and many families are homeless. A. late
dispatch says the village of Mornstown,
Wert county, was swept entirely jaway.
Great suffering exists among those who lost
all they possessed, and the County Commis
sioners of Wood connty will issue an ap
peal for aid. The clondbnrst occurred on

A TERRIBLE REPORT.
One Young East Ender Bald to Have Been
Shot nnd Killed by Another Near
Continence Particulars Dlca-
gcr bv Telegraph.
About 2 o'clock this morning The Dis
patch received word, indirectly, but on
seemingly trustworthy authority, that a
homicide had been committed yesterday at
or near Confluence, about 85 miles
up the Baltimore and Ohio Bailroad,
just abpve Ohio Pyle; that both the victim
and his slayer were young men from the
East End in this city, and that they went a
few days ago to Confluence as members of a
hunting or fishing club.
At the hour named there was no means of
direct telegraphic communication with Con
fluence, nor was there the possibility of a
train arriving until long after daylight
with all the particulars of the
reported tragic affair. A reporter for this
paper, therefore, hastened to the train
dispatcher's office of the Baltimore and
Ohio Bailroad in this city to see if the
operators there would kindly try to either
confirm or disprove the report.
The train dispatcher, getting a moment's
"let-up" on his regular duties, obligingly
called the Confluence operator, asked
him what he knew of a
Pittsburg murder ont there, and
got word back that there reallT was one, and
that the body of the young man, Scott by
nnme, would reach this city onXhe passen
ger train at G20 o'clock this morning.
Asking for particulars, this was all the
dispatcher conld get from the man at tho
key in Confluence: There was a quarrel in
the camp of the Pittsburgers, a mile and a
half from Confluence, last night. A
young fellow named Laird, whose parents
reside in the East End, this city, got very
drunk, it is alleged, and then became ex
ceedingly angry at the. rest of the boys for
insisting that he should have no more
beer. Becoming desperate, it is said,
he took a revolver from his pocket
and uttered thefurious threat that he would
sboot some of his tormentors for refusing
him more beer. A panic naturally ensued
among the young campers, and they fled in
Laird, however, only became the more
excited when he saw the startling effect of
bis threats. Bevolver still in band, and
ottering various expressions of vengeance,
he closely pursued the group, in
which a young neighbor named
Scott was a central figure, and one of the
very last to run. Approaching close to
Scott. Laird showed such a dosrrcd deter
mination as to force Scott, in self-defense, to
exchange shots with him. This, however, did
not check the infnriated yonng gunner.
He fired three shots at Scott, it is alleged,
and killed him outright with the third bul
let, which took effect in tbe back and
lodged in a vital part of the lung.
What was done, it anything, with Laird,
or how soon after tbe shooting Scott
breathed his last, could not be stated by
the operator at Confluence. He only
knew that the terrified party of young
Pittsburgers had broken camp at once and
announced that they desired to ship a mur
dered comrade back home on the
first train. The Christian name of
neither yonng man could be learned,
at so late an hour, nor the particular family
of Lairds or Seotts in the East End to which
either of them belonged.

HATE MONET TO SELL
England and Ireland Have Hoarded
Millions of Bright Gold
SEEKING SAFE INVESTMENTS.
Why Foreign Capital is Flooding tha
LOW BATES OF 1NTEEEST IN EUROPE.
How the Brewery Stock is Purchased by Small
Mr. Isaac tTntermeyer, the gentleman
who has persuaded English capitalists to
invest so heavily in this country, tells why
he did, and speaks of his success in this
direction. He says England and Ireland
are full of wealth which is seeking paying
Hew York, Jnly 21. Where does all
the monsycome from and. who are the peo
ple investing so many millions of dollars In
various industrial enterprises in the United
States recently consolidated under exten
This question was asked of Mr. Isaac TTn
termeyer, the counselor in the Stewart
building. He was the pioneer in getting
English capitalists to acquire large proper
ties in America, and, his experience has
been of much interest So many stories
have been told within- the past year of
British gold being sent over here to buy np
breweries, manufacturing institutions and
what not that people have become mystified
nnd somewhat incredulous. When Mr.
TTntermeyer was asked if it was true that
large English investments had been made in
the United States he replied that he knew
where $17,000,000 in cold cash had been
placed within a twelvemonth, and that the
work of organizing new companies was still
"I wish to correct one false impression
however," said he, "and that is in the form
ation of trusts. The English investors are
not going into trusts atoll. They are simply
organizing corporations which purchase
profitable enterprises. There is a large
amount of capital seeking investment in
England. Its aggregate would seem enor
mous to us, and my attention was first
directed to the fact about a year ago, when I
learned that the English Government had
decided upon refunding British consols at
m per cent.
ASTONISHING BUSH FOE STOCK.
"It struck me that the volume of capital
seeking investment would be likely to be
largely augmented by the reduction in the
rate on consols, and my associates and my
self determined to float a joint stock com
nanv for the rjnruose of buvintr and running
a few American breweries. Thus the forma
tion of the New York Brewery Company
followed, and has almost become a matter of
history. This enterprise was well placed in
London, and was a great go from the start,
but the most astonishing fact about it was
that stock to the amount of $33,000,000 was
subscribed for when the capitalization was
only a mere matter of $4,500,000. Nearly
eight times the amonnt asked for was
offered, and the shares were allotted pro
rata to the bidders.
"Talk about the wealth of India; why,
the amount oi money accumnlated in En
eland is something fabulous. The people
there did not wish to accept the rate of 24
per cent on consols, and were eager to in
vest savings in enterprises reasonably safe
and profitable. Yes, it opened my eyes to
the financial situation across the water
when I saw the rush for shares in the first
English brewing company formed for
America. The phenomenal success of this
enterprise started the story that British gold
was being rapidly exchanged for American
breweries to be formed into a gigantic trust.
Of course there was nothing of the kind on
foot, althongh a number of separate com
panies have been formed and others are
nnder way. These corporations, however,
are entirely distinct aud have no connec
tion with each otber. The same may be
said of companies formed for tbe purpose of
engaging in manufacturing.
LAUNCHING THE COMPANIES.
"Since that first success we have launched
the Frank Jones Brewing Company, which
took in the Portsmouth and Boston ale
breweries of ex-Congressman Jones, ot New
Hampshire. This has a capital of about
S6.SC0.000. but double the amount was bid.
such was the universal desire to secure the
shares. The United States Brewing Com
pany, with a capital of about $5,500,000,
included breweries in Newark, New York
and Albany, and all the stock was taken in
a day or two, which shows the confidence
felt in England in safe and profitable joint
stock concerns. Besides, the system of
floating a new company in London is more
complete and satisfactory all around for the
legitimate enterprises which have merit.
In tbe first place, nnder the companies' acts
and the limited liabilities acts, we must se
cure a firm . or bank or reputable and
wealthy person to engage in the underwrit
ing of tbe proposed scheme and to enter into
a guarantee that alter a certain fixed date
all the stock left unsubscribed for will be
taken by this guarantor. This is to insure
the speedy organization of the company. In
most of the corporations formed there are
issued ordinary shares, preferred stock and
mortgage debentures, and after the .pros
pectuses are distributed a certain day is
fixed to receive applications for the stock,
etc., and the whole amount is sometimes
taken in 24 hours. Of course all these com
panies must have directors in England and
also in America, nnd a committee of man
agement in the United States, besides the
regularly authorized bankers, solicitors,
auditors, brokers and debenture trustees.
WHO THE SHAKEHOLDEKE ARE.
"Who are the heavy .English capitalists
who invest all this money? There are none!
The shareholders are mostly from the middle
class of tradesmen, and the holdings are in
small amounts. The stock is usually issued
in shares of 10 each, so that the artisan
and wage-earner can invest. In one of the
companies I have mentioned there are2,000
shareholders, and an individual holding a
large block of stock is rare indeed. The
principle, of small and large investors alike
in England is pretty much the same as the
world over. They distribute their savings
and spare cash among a number of enter
prises, so that a failure of one company
would not be seriously felt.
"Tbe lamest single stocKhoiacrs in these
Anglo-American enterprises are tbe ven
ders, the original owners, who are allotted
in most instances one-thirdof the number of
shares. We found that subscriptions lor
stock in our companies came from people In
London. Liverpool. Manchester, Glasgow,
and in fact every part of the island. The
prospectus ot each enterprisewas advertised
in the newspapers in the ordinary way, and
the freedom with which applications for
shares came in by mail showed that mill
ions of pounds sterling must be actually
hoarded by tbe great middle classes of En
gland. For years railway shares have been
popular for investment, but of late manu
facturing enterprises, breweries, telephone
and electric lichtine companies have gained
in favor, and if any scheme can be shown to
be safe and to pay a profit of not less than 6
percent yearly, it can be floated without
difficulty in London.
ICELAND FULL OF MONET.
"My brother Samuel is now in Ireland in
the interest of a new enterprise' which 'will
be another succesj. The stories of the pov
erty in the Green Isle he does not believe as
he once did. The capitalization of the
Great Bass and Guinness breweries and the
formation of companies to conduct the bus
iness have proved so completely successful
and profitable that the Irish people, have
confidence in well conducted enterprises or
that kind, Therefore when my brother
looked about in Dublin and Belfast he soon
found that there were millions of money
ready for investment at auy fair rate, or to
take the 6rdiuary risks of joint stock com
panies. Thousands of Irishmen who have
saved np various sums stand ready to go
into indnstriaienterprise with cash in hand.
"The English nation appears to be made
up largely of money savers, and thev ex
hibit both enterprise and thrift in seeking
opportunities to place their money where it
will earn something. I am inclined to the
belief that the United States is only just
beginning to feel the exhilarating effects ol
the influx of British capital, and it seems
to be clear that within the next decade a
conple of hundred of millions of English
and Irish money will move this way to
assist in the development of industrial en
terprises in which there will be a large
profit for the investors and enormous benefit
to the country."

Mr. Powderly and the other members of

TS a blood disease. Until tno poison la
1 expelled from the system, there can
be no enre for this loathsome and,
dangerous malady. Therefore, the only
effective treatment is a thorough course
of Ayer's Sarsaparilla theTie3t of all
blood purifiers. The sooner you begin
the better ; delay is dangerous.
" I was troubled with catarrh for over
two years. I tried various remedies,
and was treated by a number of physi
cians, but received no benefit until I
began to takoA.yers Sarsaporilla. A
few bottles of this medicine cured me of
tnls troublesome complaint and com
pletely restored my health." Jesse JI.

"When Aver's Sarsaparilla was rec
ommended to me for datarrh, I was in
clined, to doubt Jts efficacy. Having
tried bo many remedies, with little ben
efit, I had no faith that anything would
cure me I became emaciated from loss
of appetite and impaired digestion. I
had nearly lost the sense of smell, and
my system was badly deranged. I was
about discouraged, when a friend urged
me to try Ayer's Sarsaparilla, and re
ferred me to persons whom it had cured
of catarrh. After taking half a dozen
bcttles of this medicine, I am convinced
that the only sure way of treating this
obstinate disease is through the blood."

In betting on the race tracks, women, as a
