An 1853 half dollar which was re
cently taken as payment of fare by
the conductor of a south side Chi
cago street car is said by experts in
rare coin to bo the most valuable
single coin in the collection now on
exhibition at the meeting of the
American Numismatic association at
Chicago. The conductor turned the
valuable half dollar in and the re
ceiver replaced it with another and
sent it to a Chicago dealer. Later it
was sold to DeWitt Smith of Lee,
Mass., for $500. Smith later refused
to sell It for $2,500. It is now in the
collection of H. O. Granberg, a
wealthy mine owner of Oshkosh,
Wis., who refuses to state what he
paid for it. It is said to bo valued by
its owner at $15,000. The coin lacks
the arrows and sun's rays of other
coins of its mintage, and is believed
to be th'o only one of its kind in existence.
An Albany, N. Y., dispatch, dated
August 31, says: Moneys on do
posit in postal savings banks are sub
ject to taxation according to an
opinion given today by Attorney
General Carmody to the stato board
of tax commissioners. The attorney
general holds that the state law
which exempts from taxation money
due savings banks depositors was in
tended to apply only to savings
banks as they wore provided for in
the stato banking act.
The damage done by a hurricane
which-swept the south .Atlantic coast
Sunday, night, August 27, will total
more than a million, dollars in the
oity of Charleston, S. C, alone.
Many persons are known to have
perished and it is feared that re
ports from several islands will swell
the death list. At the government
navy yard the damage was reported
in excess of more than $20,000, tor
pedo boats being badly damaged and
buildings injured. Thousands of men
are clearing away the debris left by
the hurricane.
Laws prohibiting the pretention

An Associated Press dispatch from
New York, dated August 31, says:
"In obedience to the decision of the
supreme court, the Standard Oil
company is relinquishing its control
of the subsidiary concerns, and to
day is the date set for the ending of
the old regime, with the end of
business today the company's books,
containing the list of stockholders,
will close and the stock of its sub
sidiaries will be distributed among
the stockholders in the parent or
ganization of record,at that time. The
work of apportioning the company's
holdings of the stock of more than
thirty subsidiaries affected will occu
py at least three months, it is ex
pected, so that the readjustment will
not be complete prior to December 1.
The American Bar association, in

Ralnh W. Breckenridge, Nebraska;
Hillis R. Bailey, Massachusetts, and
Aldis B. Brown, District of Colum
bia. The resolution denouncing the
principle of recall of judges was
adopted by a large majority.
A Baltimore dispatch, dated
August 30, says: On the face of
almost complete unofficial returns
today from the democratic primary
election in Maryland yesterday, State
Qnnntnr Arthur Huco German will
defeat State Senator Blair Lee for
the gubernatorial nomination by one
vote in the state convention to be
held in September. A factor that
contributed to Senator Lee's defeat
was the loss of one vote each in two
of the counties he carried because
of a decrease in population as shown
by the last census.

train on the Southern Pacific railroad
near Lamoine, Cal., and made their
getaway with booty.
The corner's inquest, held at
Canonsburg, Pa., concerning tho
deaths in a panic during a picture?
show at the Canonsburg opera house
August 26, when twenty-six persons
were killed and scores injured, re
turned a verdict censuring the mana
ger of the show and tho state de
partment of factory and building in
spection. The Southern Pacific Railroad
company, through Julius Krutt
schnitt, vice president and director
of maintenance and operation of tho
Harrlman lines, has absolutely re
jected a demand for recognition of
the federation of shop employes com
prising five shop craft unions and
25,000 men. That such recognition,
with its implications, would hamper
the company in performing its duty
to the public was the position taken
by its officials. Union leaders asked
for it on the grounds of economy and
expedition, and admittedly because
of a feeling that greater centraliza
tion of capital and power made cor
responding centralization among
various unions desirable. The
unions involved had asked their
general officers for permission to
strike in the event of tho refusal to
grant recognition of the federation.
It is thought possible that the repre
sentatives of the five shop craft
unions will seek another meeting
with the railroad officials before tak
ing definite action.
Following is a page from the
Congressional Record:
The Speaker pro tempore (Mr.
Underwood.) The Chair recognizes
the gentleman from Missouri (Mr.
Clark.) (Applause on tho demo
cratic side.)
Mr. Clark of Missouri. Mr.
Speaker, I fully agree with my well
beloved friend, the gentleman from
tihtioIk (Mr. Mann), that the growth
of this country since 1860, in wealth
and in every other respect, has been
phenomenal. No man rejoices in
that more than I do. I permit no
living human being to be more pa
triotic than I am. (Applause on
the democratic side.) I suppose his
figures are correct, but the gentle
man leaves out of his calculations
the most important element of
growth in the United States since
1860. and that is the growth in
population (applause on the. demo
cratic side); and surely no republi-
:; r:r in a Rochester, Minn., can will dare to claim wat ido re-
WnTtrtl over awek ago for, an in- publicans begat all tnat. increase m
toJrttoti SderoStinues enourag- population, (Applause on the demo-
cratlc side.) Democrats did thoir
full share in that regard. Who
created this wealth? Domocrats had
as much to do with increasing it as
the republicans had. (Applauso on
tho democratic side.) It makes mo
weary to hear peoplo talk about
somebody wanting to destroy tho in
dustries and prosperity of this land.
It is a lie. (Loud applauso on the
democratic side.) No sane man
wants to injuro in tho estimation of
a hair any legitimate industry of
this country. (Applauso on tho
democratic sido.) It is a thing in
credible. That is what I have con
tended for always, and especially
sinco we carried tho house and had
the responsibility placed upon us. It
is our country as well as yours; our
children must live hero as well as
yours; we have as great a stake in
the prosperity of tho republic as you
havo; and, in the language of Tiny
Tim, "God bless us, every one."
(Applause on tho democratic side.)
Tho president has tho constitu
tional right to veto this bill If ho
wanted to do so. I am not quarrel
ing with him about that. I am, as
his personal friend, lamenting his
.lack of wisdom. (Applause on tho
democratic side.) Ho has raised an
issue which will rago with unabated
fury until the close of the polls in
November, 1912. (Applause on the
democratic sido.) We most cheer
fully welcome that issue. Wo will
meet the president and his stand-pat
cohorts at Philippl. You gentlemen
talk about our putting tho president
in a hole. We did not havo to do so;
ho has done it for himself. (Applause
on the democratic side.)
But, nevertheless and notwith
standing, the gentleman from Ken
tucky (Mr. James) stated the literal
historic truth when ho said that tho
right of veto is a' remnant of the
royal prerogative. Ho was correct
also when he stated that no English
sovereign has dared to exercise tho
veto power in something like 200
years. If George the Fifth should
veto an important measure ho would
lose his crown and his throne and
be sent on his "travels," as Charles
the Second facetiously denominated
his banishment. My good friend
from Tennessee (Mr. Austin) who
nominated mo for president and I
rejoice In the fact that tho republi
can members of this house feel as
kindly toward me personally as the
democrats do (applause) it is a
matter of infinite pride with mo
the gentleman got this tariff board
business wrong. The gentleman
from Alabama (Mr. Underwood) and
myself never advocated this tariff
board. (Applause on the democratic
side.) We never voted for it. I will
tell you what we did advocate and
what wo did vote for, and that is to
make that board a board of real ex
perts and then make it responsive
to the house of representatives in
general and to the ways and means
committee in particular. (Applause
on the democratic side.) I am will
ing to do that now. I am not going
to say anything derogatory of this
tariff board, but I am going to say
what I think, as I always do. The
gentleman from New York (Mr.
Payne) and the gentleman from
Pennsylvania (Mr. Dalzell) and all
tho rest of the republican members
of the committee on ways and means
who served on that committee in the
Sixtieth and Sixty-first congresses
when the Payne-Aldrich bill was
framed and passed, and the gentle
man from Illinois (Mr. Cannon),
who, while he was not present when
the first tariff bill was made in 1789,
has been present at nearly all the
rest of them (laughter); and the
gentleman from Alabama (Mr.
Underwood), and the gentleman
from Texas (Mr. Randall), and the
gentleman from New York (Mr.
Harrison), and the gentleman from
Georgia (Mr. Brantley), who were
also on tho old ways and means com
mittee any ono of them knows
moro about tho tariff today than that
ontlro tariff board rolled togothcr.
(Applauso on tho democratic Bide.)
I namo only tho old members; but
I will say that the now democratic
members of tho ways and moans
committee were selected for their
fitness for such work; and I dcslro
to bear witness in this distinguished
prosenco to tho fact that no set of
men over worked harder, more por
sistontly, or moro painstakingly in
tho discharge of a duty than havo
