far as possible , although several persons -
sons recognized her because of her
picture In the newspapers. Her jaun

attend her upon frequent occasions.
A man who saw her several times In
Now York city and who Is visiting
friends In San Juan , said today :
"Nan looks ten years older than
when 1 last saw her. She appears con
tinually frightened. There must bo
something that Is continually worry
ing her. When I know her she was
always vivacious and lively , always
ready to laugh and Joke , and never
depressed. I saw her yesterday lis
tening to the band concert on the
plaza. She did not seem to heed the
music , but gazed far out to sea , preoc
cupied over something which nobody
knows but herself. Nan Patterson Is
a stricken girl. "

the steamship Ponce. They made a
sight-seeing tour of the city with Mr.

around the Island. They returned to
San Juan two days later.
There Is a rumor to the effect that
Nan Patterson Intends to return to
the United States to plead with Mr.
Jerome to have the weight of a sus
pended sentence lifted from her shoul
Neither Mr. nor Mrs. Martin will
discuss their affairs for publication.

la Now the Loan Queen In New York
Mrs. Hetty Robinson Green , richest
woman In the world , celebrated her
71st birthday anniversary on Tuesday
by drawing n check for $1,000,000 and
incidentally turning the pretty penny
of $25,000 interest ns part of a hard
day's work.
Mis. Green delivered the check to
Deputy City Chamberlain Campbell In
person on the day when her fomlnlno
vanity might bo supposed to Induce
her to yield to the temptation of a
half-holiday. The check was for n six-
months' loan , and she Is to got 5 per
cent on the sum. Mrs Green Is a fre
quent louder to the city. In fact , she
1ms loaned $2,500,000 to the chamberlain -
lain since November 10 , and before
that time she had loaned considerable
sums to the chamberlain's olllce. Mrs.

With a Fairly Conservative Platform
on the Ownership Idea It Is Said
They Can Keep Out Hearst , Who is
Not Wanted by Better Class.
Washington , Nov 2D. It Is said In
Washington that William Randolph
llo.irst's announcement that ho bus
opened pcimnncnt headquatters in
Now York city with a view to extend
ing his municipal ownership organ/a-
tlon over the entire state is a prelim
inary mo\c to ills limning for go\orn
or next year on a municipal ownership
ticket , or to dictating the nomination
of one of his snppoiteis for that place.
It Is believed here that he will himself
run , thus paving the way to his can
didacy for the presidency on a gov
ernment ownei ship platform In 1908.
This situation is causing the leading
democrats a good deal of worry , for
riearst , as a piesldentlal nominee will
cut Into the democuiUc vote In the
cities of the country where It is stiong
est and help make a democratic vic
tory Impossible.
Many prominent democrats are al-
toady saying that the only way to off
set the Heaist movement will be to
gi\o Bryan the demociatic presidential
nomination on a fairly conservative
ownership ticket. This would repeat
on a national scale the campaigns this
year In Chicago and New York.
President of Norfolk Commercial Club
Delivers Address.
Albion News : The first general
meeting of the Albion Commercial
club was held at the Woodman hall
last Friday evening. When the cigars
had been lighted , the company was
prepared to appreciate the toasts
which followed.
These toasts were as follows : "Al
bion As It Is , " response by Senator
Brady ; "What Albion Needs Most , "
response by Mayor Graham ; "Albion
As It May bo , " response by F. M Wet-
l/el ; "What Can the Commercial Club
Do ? " response by D. .1. Po > nter. These
were all short , as It was understood
that Hon. W. M. Robertson , who was
to make the ad-
I present , was principal -
I dross. However , there were many
good points brought out and sugges
tions made. Mayor Graham's sugges
tions as to what Albion needs most
were eminently practical and worthy
the consideration of the club.
Mr. Robertson was at his best and
gave an interesting and inspiring talk.
The speaker visited Albion more than
thirty years ago when there were just
three buildings In the town. He has
been hero at intervals during the time
slnco then Ho was here at our first
county fair and delivered an address.
Ho was the first Fourth of July orat
or. Ho has known personally many
of our cltlrens. Ho has had experi
ence In commercial club work and Is
at present the president of the Norfolk
club. All those things made It pos
sible for him to talk In a most Inter
esting manner , and no one became
weary in listening to him although ho
talked for nearly an hour.
Although this wan a good meeting ,
and wo bollevo will tend to encourage
moro interest and enthusiasm In the
club In Albion. If the present organi
zation can bo maintained for a aeries
of years , there Is no question as to its
accompllshmlng much good. The
trouble is many want to sec some big
thing done right away quick. That la
not possible , because the club has no
funds to speak of , and it must creep
before It can walk.
