Labor leaders estimate that there
are 18 1,000 men out of employment
In New York City.
Senator Clay of Georgia attacked
the Aldrlch bill in a speech deliv
ered in tho senate. An Associated.
Press dispatch referring to Senator
Clay's speech said: "Senator Clay
analyzed the Aldrlch bill and de
clared it was wrong and vicious, and
would givo no relief to the south
and west. JIo contended that it
simply enlarged the powers of the
national banks and that congress was
relinquishing tho sovereign right to
issue and circulate money, which it
ought never to do. The plan of the
minority hi the senate for the gov
ernment to issue $000,000,000 of
treasury notes and to use them in
paving the expenses of the govern
ment, that they might nnd their way
into all channels of trade, was advo
cated by him. Mr. Clay said there
are now in circulation $350,000,000
of treasury notes not costing the
government anything and perform
ing all the functions of money, and
that this amount could be easilv in
creased $500,000,000 without in any
way disturbing our finances, and
could not possibly result in a depre
ciated currency. State bonds, city
bonds and municipal bonds of the
south and west, ho contended, were
now being held by eastern capital
ists, and tho south and west could
not secure any additional circulation
by making these bonds a basis of
circulation, as they had already been
sold in the east. He declared that
tho class of railroad bonds mentioned
In the Aldrlch bill applied solely to
tho railroads in the east and the rail
roads in the south and west had
never paid dividends as provided in
tho Aldrich bill. The bill, he said,
was drawn in favor of the rich and
powerful, enabling them to control
the money issue, and it was not in
mo interest or the American people.
He declared that he stood for tho
doctrine once advocated by John C.
Calhoun, Thomas Benton and An
drow Jackson, that our money ought
to bo in gold and silver and paper
money issued by tho 'government
Ho ridiculed the idea that additional
treasury notes would denreaintn be

feeling may have possessed the dep
uty, for when the uniform was re
moved from tho lifeless body today,
a newspaper clipping fluttered from
a pocket that had covered his heart.
Tho clipping told of a seemingly
miraculous escape from death in
early boyhood and the story bore the
headlines 'This Boy was Not Born
to be Killed.' Not since the death
of Chief Bresnahan has the depart
ment felt a blow as keenly as they
did this last stroke of the ill fortune,
which has been with it ever since
the Parker building fire, in which
three men lost their lives, and fol
lowed by the recent Worth street
fire, in which two were killed. It
was a common remark that Kruger
never 'sent,' but always 'led' and
when his cherry call, 'Come on, boys,'
rang out for the last time, a dozen
men were at his heels. The situa
tion was desperate. The buildings
at 215 and 217 Canal street were in
flames and when the block wai
threatened, Chief Croker had re
fused to order his men into the
buildings, but had consented to
Kruger's venture. 'Chief, there's no
hope of getting into the basement
of 217,' tho grizzled deputy said,
'our only chance is to go down into
the cellar of 215 and cut a hole
through the separating walls. Come
on, boys.' Into the cellar, filled
with water, smoke and overwhelm
ing fumes, from melted gas pipes,
the men threw themselves. Groping
in advance, Kruger stumbled
through a trap door and presently
was floundering helplessly in six
feet of water. Unable to see, the
other men heard a splash and then a
cry: 'Save me, Andy. 'Andy' had
driven his chief to his first fire and
shadowed him into every succeeding
danger. Ten minutes later the un
conscious form of 'Big-hearted
uirariey was stretched on the pave
,ment, and Chief Croker, on his knees
beside it, begged the department
surgeon 'for God's sake, do some
thing.' Resort was had to every ex
pedient, but before his last fire had
burned itself out the soot-grimed
fighter was dead. Rising to his
feet Chief Croker slipped his coat
from his back and spreading it over
the face of his deputy, clambered
into his big red machine. 'I knew
it would happen this way,' said one
of Kruger's men when tho chief's
body was being carried away. 'I
have bee to many fires with him.
He was always in tho lead. He never
said, Boys, go into that place or
this place; he always led us himself.
He said, 'Boys, follow me,' and that's
just what he said this time when he
led us into that basement. 'Boys,
follow mo.' It was just what many
