Mayorhaahlman has asked the members
of the council to meet him as a general
committee in his office at 2 o'clock Friday
afternoon to take up the matter of order
ing a thorough Investigation or all Uvj
financial records and accounts in ll
btanches of the city government buck for
a term of years extending over the period
of the last incumbent. It is the inten
tion both of the mayor and some of the
councilman to employ expert accountants
to work with the comptroller's office. At
the same meeting it Is Intended to start
planning for an improved system of au
diting and checking.
The mayor says lie does not believe it
necessary to go back more than two years
lr. the accounts of former City Treasurer
Hennlngs. as he is satisfied an lnvostlga.
tlon 'made by a -bond company at that
time is conclusive In showing affairs to
be in proper condition.
. "The new council Intended to make a
thorough check as now outlined." said
Councilman Brucker. "The expose of tho
methods used in thu police court simply
brought the matter to development a lit
tle Quicker than would have been
case otherwise. It is proposed to go ovur
the. record involving the expenditure of
luuney for all purposes.
nrasnn to Suspect Fraud.
'We have no reason to believe anything
Is wrong, but we wish to satisfy ourselves
that affairs are right."
Deputy Comptroller Cosgrove and an as
slslsnt are still checking over police eourt
accounts, but have not reached a stage to
Miyor Dahlman resents the report that
he tins failed to sign pardons for city
prisoners, ile explains that the system
employed requires his signature after the
prisoner lias been released from the city
Jail by verbnl orders through the chief
of police, and the reoord has been made
Complete at the police court. When the
proper blanks are filled out they are re
turned to the mayor who signs them,
makes a permanent record and returns the
documents to the clerk of the police court
for fling. Acoording to the mayor the
deputy comptroller merely got hold of
, snme psrdnns not yet properly executed
and which were to be sent to his office
for signature. With 1 the county Jail the
procedure Is different towards city
prisoners incsreersted there. The executive
signs the pardon first and the clerical work
Is attended to later.
Charles M. Pepper, a distinguished news
paper man, who has traveled extensively,
especially in the Latin-American republics,
and who Is a member of the permanent
pan-American railway committee, is the
author of a valuable book on the canal
and Its results under the title "Panama to
Patagonia." Analysis is made of national
tendencies, political Institutions and gov
ernmental policies, natural recourses and
their lines of development, existing popu
lations and bases of immigration and llscal
systems. While presenting exact and de
tailed information for those who may
travel or settle In Panama and South
America, the author's aim is to put the
very much larger number of people who re
main at home In sympathetic touch' with
places, scenes and conditions, so that they
may follow with Intelligent Interest all the
phases of the canal's Influence and devel
opment. The economic effect of the Panama canal
is discussed with special reference to the
commercial and Industrial influence on the
west coast countries, at South America.
Comment is made on the response of those
countries to the action of the United States
In undertaking the construction of the
In an analysis of the geographical radius
of the canal the opinion Is maintained that
the Andes are no limitation and that the
grain fields of northwestern Argentina,
through the pressure of population west
ward and the building of Intercontinental
railway spurs, will contribute to the traffic
of the canal, while a measure of Amazon
commerce will flow to and from the Pa
cific. The proposition Is advanced that the
Pacific coast trafllc, on account of the
facilities afforded by the waterway. In the
future will form a larger proportion In the
total of South American commerce. The
creation of a north and south trade current
is declared to be an assured result of the
canal. The diversion of traffic from Cape
Morn . and the Straits of Magellan, while
Important, Is given less significance than
the growth of commerce which will result
from the stimulus to Industrial and com
mercial enterprise. This Increased com
merce Is declared to be the overshadowing
element In the waterway as an economic

"In the House of Her Friends," is a
story of life In college circles admirably
told by an anonymous' writer. This book is
well written volume of Action, especially
strong In Its subtle delineations of char
acter, skilfully achieved by a masterly
hand that Is guided by the power to assume
different points of view. It Is not often that
a writer is able to show the reader the
varied opinions of individuals on their
fellow characters In the dramatis personae.
Wherefore this writer's accomplishment Is
the more remarkable. Many of the little
trials and tribulations that enter Into fac
ulty life are woven into this absorbing
story, and It Is most original in Its con
ception as being a fresh . presentation of
college life, not from the standpoint of
the college student's part In things, but in
gathering from the inner circles of the real
college "machinery," the dean, the pro
fessors, the trustees and the alumnae, the
threads of interest. Tbat the book's author
U no mere novice Is Immediately apparent,
and It Is to be hoped the cloak of anonym
ity will be thrown aside, since no idle
curiosity leads one to be interested in its
writer, who seems to desire the book to
be received solely on Its own merits. Pub
lished by Hubert (Jrler Cooke.
"The Scarlet Empire." by David M. Parry,
president of the National Association of
Manufacturers, is his prophecy of the
doom of. the socialists-' theory of .equality,
lie has attempted In his story to reduce
socialism to an absurdity by carrying out
lis principles to their logical conclusion.
In Mr. Parry's social democracy, man has

k. hn biiitxi in him: he is a mere num
ber in a machine' run by Inspectors, and
inspectors of Inspectors, and inspectors ui
inspectors of innpectors. It is the aim of
each number in the working body to do as
little work as possible, since there Is no
reward for Industry ; "consequently the dis
cipline of the labor supervisors Is that of
the chain gang. The daily ration is In
sufficient for big men, too large for small
ones; this to produce uniformity of stature
and strength. For the same reason ugly
men are mated with beautiful women, and
vice versa. Over it all rests a deadly
monotony of existence. Published by the
