they had been assured of the support
of the state bankers.
Interest throughout the state was
Intense. The Columbia company was
the reserve for perhaps 150 other state
banks and had on deposit $1,300,000 of
their deposits. The failure of the ap

result of an accident while driving a

WHITNEY MAKbS STATEMENT
Tells Why He Did Not Go Back to
Etah for Cook's Possessions.
New York , Sept. 30. The following
dispatch has been received by the
Associated Press from Harry Whitney ,
the New Haven hunter who arrived at
St. Johns , N. F. , by the schooner
Jcanie on its way homo :
"Stevensville Crossing , N. F. , Sept.
29. So many questions arc being ask
ed of me by different papers that I
desire to make the following state
ment through the Associated Press :
"My reason for not going back to
12tah after Dr. Cook's things was that
the engines of the Jcanie , one of the
smallest boats that ever went to the
arctic , were not working satisfactory
and ' we were depending paitly on sails ,
which later wo had to do entirely.
There was no reason why the Jennie
could ' not have gone back , but not
knowing that Dr. Cook's things left
with , mo wore of such importance as
they have since turned out to be , I did
"In addition , I had promised the Es
kimos who were with mo after
musk . oxen in Ellsmoreland certain
things which I expected on the ship
coming ' for me but they were not
aboard * the Jeanlo and I did not want
to return and disappoint the men. An
other reason was that I wanted to pro
long my hunting trip while was able
tf do so by not going back , but by
cutting across the sound from North
Star bay and following the edge of
the ice south.
"I do not believe either Dr. Cook or
Commander Penry , if placed In my
position , would have done any differ
ently than I did , nor would they when
started south for civilization , have
turned back. "
"I never had seen Dr. Cook until I
met him in the arctics. Ho told mo
he had been to the north pole and I
was pledged not to reveal this fact to
Commander Peary , but I could say
that he had gone further north than
Peary in 190G.
"Commander Peary , to my knowl
edge , knew absolutely nothing about
what had been left with mo by Dr.
Cook , except that I mentioned instru
ments , clothes and furs and also a
narwhal horn. Dr. Cook's belongings
left In my charge were placed In boxes
which wore nailed up. Then I saw the
Eskimos cover them with rocks.
"No one could hnvo boon kinder tome
mo or shown mo more consideration
than Commander Peary did when I
was on the Roosevelt. Ho said ho
would bo very glad to have mo remain
aboard and return with him , instead of
joining the Jeanle. "

Riverhead , L. I. , Sept. 30.-Tho

record for automobile racing on the

TO TEST DIVORCE LAW.
Claimed That It Is Class Legislation
and , Therefore , Unconstitutional.
Sioux Falls , S. D. , Sept. 30. The
state divorce law may have to prove
its constitutionality in the near future ,
as a result of a divorce proceeding
brought before Judge Jones.
The plaintiff in the action Is a wom
an prisoner In the. state penitentiary ,
and had nnt lived in Mlnnehaha coun
ty more than three months before
bringing her action. Involuntary resi
dence in the penitentiary does not
count in the eyes of the law.
The consequence was that Attorney
General Clark , who represents the
woman's husband , demanded that a
change of venue bo taken to the coun
ty in which the woman had formerly
resided. Judge Jones , accordingly , dis
missed the action for want of Jurisdic
The contention of Sam Wright , the
attorney for the plaintiff In the capo.
Is that the divorce law of 1907 ,
which was submitted under the refer
endum of 1908 , is class legislation , and
therefore violates the fourteenth
amendment to the federal constitution ,
and of section 18 , article (5. ( of the state
constitution , which reads as follows :
"No law shall be passed granting
any citizen or class of citizens or cor
poration , privileges or Immunities
which upon the same terms shall not
equally belong to all citizens and cor
There Is now a case pending on ap
peal In the supreme court of South
Dakota , which challenges'tho constitu
tionality of the present divorce law , al
but Sam Wright stated yesterday that
appellate proceedings were usually
slow and the suggested procedure In $
the case now being pushed by him ,
would probably result In an earlier de
termination than would come through
the case now pending on appeal.
The divorce case referred to may bo
