leans, claiming they were not pro

tain Johns managed to escape, and,
catching a moving train, went to
Spasske, where he reported to the
American officer in command. A de
tachment of 150 Americans from
the 27th regiment at once entrained
and went to Iman to effect Sper
ling's release and on arriving there
took three Cossacks as hostage.
Japs Make Threats
They found General Kalmikoff's
men entrenched near the station and
were preparing to use force against j
them when a Japanese major inter
ceded for Cossacks, stating it is al
leged, that In the event of hostilities
between the Americans and Cos
sacks, the Japanese troops will re
main outside with the latter. A tele
graphic demand for Sperling was
sent to Khaborovsk, and a reply was
received that he would be released
at once. The Americans then re-,
turned to Spasske, taking their host
ages with them.
A preliminary investigation of the
incident shows, it is said, that Sper
ling was flogged, a punishment that
is usually meted out to a recalcitrant
Cossack. General Kalmikoff, who is
considered by Americans bore as a
"Siberian Villa" has, with his band,
been a constant source of trouble, it
is charged, his raids being marked
by atrocities. He was recently ap
pointed military commander of the
Khaborovsk district by General
Roseanoff and it is alleged this has
brought about an increase in his ac

Ignorance of Reported
Japanese Interference
By .''Associated Press.
Sept. 30— Secretary
Baker said to-day that Major Genoi
al Graves, commanding the Ameri
can forces in Siberia, had informed
the Department that an officer and
enlisted men had been held by Cos
sacks and releasd upon his demand,
and that the matter had been refer
red to the State Department "for sub
sequent action."
The deparment, Mr. Baker said,
had not heard of the reported inter
ference by a Japanese officer with
American troops sent to affect the re
lease of the enlisted men.
"Department records," said the Sec
reary, "only show that an officer and
an enlisted man wer held by cos
sacks and were released on the de
mand of General Graves.
"We have not heard of the Japa
nese incident. The matter has b-'-n
referre.d to the State Department for
subsequent action."

particulars of this important trans
"The Pennsylvania Surety Com
pany, of Harrisburg, is passing un
der new control. The Harrisburg
Trust Company, present owner of the
stock, has made a contract for its
sale to New York and Boston inter
ests. The capital of the company
will be immediately increased to
$500,000 and the surplus to a like
amount. Steps have already been
taken to amend its charter so that it
may write burglary insurance. .The
business of the company will be con
fined to fidelity, surety and burglary
lines, and no additional lines are
contemplated. After the increase in
capital is completed, it is the inten
tion of the company to apply for ad
mission to New York and Massa
chusetts and to open branch offices
in each state. Branch offices will
also be established at Philadelphia
and Pittsburgh.,
K. H. Manning in Charge
"The new interests have already
arranged with experienced men for
the home office. The underwriting
management will be in charge of
E H. Manning, now one of the princi
pal bond underwriters at the home of
fice of the Fidelity and Casualty Com
pany, of New Y'ork, noted for its con
servative business methods. Mr. Man
ning is closely identified with the
ntw interests. The agency director
will be a man now prominently con
nected with another company, who
has had many years of agency and
executive experience. The head of
the burglary insurance department
will be the present chief underwrit
er in that department for one of the
leading companies. Their names are
not yet available for publication.
"J. R. Henry, the present secre
tary of the company, will be retain
ed and will probably be elected a
vice-president and treasurer. Ed
ward Bailey, the president, will con
tinue as a director and will
have substantial holdings of stock.
Other directors of the Harriv
burg Trust Company, as individ
uals, will be stockholders, and it is
probable, also, that other .bankers in
Harrisburg will be included in the
directorate. A small amount of the
stoek will probably be distributed
among some of the banks of Penn
sylvania known to the controlling in
Solid Company
"The Pennsylvania Surety Company
is a very substantial institution, but
by reason of having operuted in a
very limited territory, is compara
tively little known. It was incorpor
ated In 1905 and commenced business
in December of that year with a cap
ital of $250,000. It was organized by
the owners of the Harrisburg Trust
Company, Edward Bailey, a promi
nent Central Pennsylvania financier,
being president. It was organized
to take care of local business in
Pennsylvania in which the trust
company might be interested finan
cially or through personal affilia
tion. While it has never done a
large business, the risks assumed
were first class, the losses and ex
penses low and the investments prof
itable. The company has paid $130,-
000 in dividends and built up a sur
plus of approximately $360,000. It is
a member of the Towner Rating Bu
reau, and maintains ratps. It is
qualified to execute bonds running to
the United States. It is a highly
esteemed member of the Surety As
j sedation of America- Its officers and
directors are men of high financial
and business standing.
"The ownership of the stock by the
Trust Company has not been con
ducive to expansion. There is only
one other surety company in Penn
sylvania, located at Pittsburgh. The
directors of the Harrisburg Trust
Ccmpany, recognizing the opportun
ities for a large company to operate
not only in Pennsylvania but in oth
er states decided to relinquish the
trust company's dominant ownership
provided the new controlling interest
would agree that the home office
should remain in Harrisburg. and
that the company Should continue
primarily a Pennsylvania institution,
that in expanding it should enter
states whose business is desir
able, that the management should
seek quality rather than quantity of
business and continue the conser
vative underwriting policy which has
prevailed in the past.
Jn Healthy Condition
"Early in September S. H. and
Lee J. Wolfe, the New York actu
aries, examined the company for its
entire period of operation. They
found it in healthy condition, with
adequate reserves.
"E. H. Manning, who will have the
underwriting management, has had
20 years experience in the surety
business. He is a graduate of the
University of Maryland and a law
yer. He became an underwriter in
the judicial department of the United
States Fidelity and Guaranty Com
pany. of Baltimore in 1899. In 1904.
he went to the American Bonding
Company, of Baltimore. Subsequent
ly he was sent to Oklahoma and In
dian Territories as joint attorney for
that company and the Fidelity and
Deposit Company to handle the
thousands of claims which had aris
en under Indian guardian bonds. This
required several years. He remain
ed in the West, representing a num
ber of casualty and surety compan
ies as attorney and as advisory un
derwriter, until he was called to
New York to become connected with
the Fidelity and Casualty Company.
For the past year no has devoted
most of his time to developing the
company's surety business in New
England. He is a member of sev
eral New York clubs and is a Mason
in high standing."

Governor Sproul touched on the
question of housing. He said he
would make certain recommenda
tions to the next Legislature which
may be considered radical, but which
he' believed would be most effective
in giving workers more sanitary
places to live In. "The State can
compel action in this direction," ho
said, "but we would rather have
your co-operation."
