Never Wears Mended Stockings.'n
Now York , Nov. 22. Miss Gtulla P.
Moroslni , famed for the splendor of
her costumes and the beauty of her
figure , upon which the creations of
the costumer's art are always shown
to the best possible advantage , talked
to a reporter of the gowns which she
will wear this week at the horse show.
"There really Is 'no ' end. to the
amount a woman with money could
spend on dress , " she said. "When I
say $200,00 a year , I am putting the
figure very low. A well dressed wo
man has at least 100 gowns a year.
Some of mine cost as high as $0,000 ,
others less than $1,000. I would av
erage them at about $1,000 apiece.
Naturally this item does not Include
For the horse show I always have
a number of gowns made. It Is true
that I have a new costume for every
time I appear at the horse show and
for the times I exhibit In the afternoon
and morning I have nine or ten gowns
made for this purpose.
"My shoes , of course , are an Hem
in my expenses , as I have a pair to
match every gown. They cost me $50
a pair. I have about fifty pairs a year.
"Stockings ? " Why , I couldn't tell
you how much I pay for them a year.
I wear so many. I pay from $7 , for
the plain black silk ones , up to $50 a
pair. Do I ever wear a mended stockIng -
Ing ? Never , never. Nor do I ever
wear a pair of gloves twice. As I pay
$4 a pair for my gloves , that amounts
to over $1,460 a year.
"My single handkerchiefs cost from
$25 to $100 apiece and the tiny ones
I put In my gloves cost from $5 to $10
'My lingerie costs me in the neigh
borhood of $20,000 a year.
"Furs make an Hem of about $10-
000 a year.

criticising me for my reckless expend- !
ture on clothing , but I do not agree

CARUSO | NPOLICE COURT
Enters Flat Denial , but Testimony of
Arresting Officer is Corroborated.
New York , Nov. 22. Enrico Caruso ,
the great Italian tenor , faced an audi
ence of 600 persons In Yorkvllle police
court and denied positively that he
had made Indecent advances to a
woman In the monkey house in Cen
tral park list Friday. He declared 1
that his arri.'st was due to pique upon
the part of a woman , who described
herself as Hannah Graham , because
he failed to respond to advances
which she made to him.
Mrs. Graham was not present to
press the charge which she had lodged
against the singer. Park Policeman
Cane , however told of the alleged
events which had led to the arrest of
the singer , being corroborated In part
by other witnesses. Several other
policemen corroborated the officer as
to the happenings in the police station
at the time of the arrest. They de
clared that Caruso pleaded with the
woman not to prefer a charge against
him and that with outstretched hands
and In an Imploring voice he declared
that It is "all a mistake , madam. I
meant no harm. "
Against all this the singer placed
what amounted practically to a flat de
nial of the whole case of the prosecu
tlon. He denied ability to speak
English and declared that , therefore ,
It would have been Impossible for him
to have made the statements attrib
uted to him by the police. He de
clared that the woman upon whose
complaint he was arrested had smiled
at him and by look and action Invited
attention , which ho did not condescend -
descend to give.

ECKELS FOR ASSET CURRENCY

Omaha , Nov. 22. About 300 bankers
arc In attomlaiuo at the tenth annual
convention ot the Nebraska Hankers'
association , which lb In a two days
fccssion ut the Lyric theater.
James II. ICckols of Chicago spoke
on the question of cunency reform.
His address , which was oCfdfnth , was
devoted to an argument that the
banks be given power to Issue u
credit currency. He said In part :
"I am not unmindful of the fact
that the attacks on what are termed
th evil effects of so-called trusts , the
In of taxation , and the
wrongful follies of tariff schedules ,
together with the dreamy and charm *
Ingly ' pictured benefits of government
al and municipal control and owner
ships : , today attract the attention of
men In public place and more fill the
public , eye , but taken as a whole no
one of them Is of more far-reaching
Importance or affects moro greatly the
underlying conditions of prosperity In
the : country than docs the less alluring
subject of currency reform. It is a
happy circumstance that the need of
a more responsive character of bank
note Issue mid a bettor adapted vela
tlon of government finance to dally
business undertakings demands atten
tion at a time when the prosperity of
the country Is undoubted ; Its agrlcul
turo , manufacture and financial nctiv-
Itlcs everywhere apparent and sub-
stantlal and Its credit conditions
healthful and sound. The demand for
better things springs neither from
panic nor threatened distress. It is
not | the far cry of the banker In the
first Instance , but of the men who
outside ] the distinctive realm of
finance feel how Inadequate are the
banks of the country , up"on whom the 1
business interests of the country rely
to fully and cheaply meet the varying
demands of Irado and commerce. "
In conclusion Mr. Eckels urged the
necessity of granting more adequate
power of new Issues to the banks.

Federation of Labor Does Not Take

Minneapolis , Nov. 22. After a warm
debate the convention of the Amer

the executive committee the question
of levying an assessment ugfflnst thu
ledcrutloii in favor of the striking
structural Iron workers of the country
Frank M. " "Ryan of the structural
iron workers said 3,000 of his men
were out of work at present and that
their ranks were being added to. Ho
said most of the men had been on
strike for sixteen months and that
there was urgent need of funds for
carrying on the fight , asking for an as
scssmcnt of 4 cents from each member
of all bodies affiliated with the na
tional federation. It soon developed
that some International unions would
bo unable to boar increased burdens.
James M. Lynch , speaking for the
International I Typographical union ,
said his organization was paying out
$31,000 a week in strike benefits and
he did not see how his members could
bear any further burden.
An almost unanimous vote referred
the matter to the executive council ,
and as that body will have to act on
other applications for aid , It Is more
than likely that little or no financial
help can be extended.
