NEW YORK, Oct. 24.-The Bank of Eng- I
land haa commanded the attention of the
whole financial world In an unusual decree
during the last week with Its third suoces
Ive advance in Its official discount tate
In two weeki, doubling the rate in thai
period. Ominous Intimation! coma from
the English center at the same time that
additional protective measure! will be re
sorted lo If found necessary to avert fur
ther inroads on London's banking resources.
Coming tn the wake of a period of assur
ances of the ample resources of the money
markets to meet all the exigencies of the
season, this action of the bank furnlsnes
undeniable evidence of a wide miscalcula
tion of the .situation. On what may b-j the
elements In that miscalculation opinion
fer, but there are certain of the f.ictors
Fllie problem which are clear. One of
tliVse Is the fact of extensive American
borrowings In the London money market.
Critics In London allege that an u-iorldled
speculation In the New York stock market
Is primarily responsible for the condition.
The prolonged advance In prlcea In New
York and the high rate of activity In tha
stock market dealings are corroborative
of that view.
Heavy Borrowings AbroaaT.
Borrowing from foreign money markets
through the summer is a usual proceed
ing on the part of New York. The amount
of New York's borrowings this year, which
aie currently accepted, point to heavy
excess over the customary amount, a -oun
billion dollars being the figure most fre
quently heard. The current estimate Is
questioned by auch an authority us Jacob
H. Schtff, head of Kuhn, Loeb & Co., wno
says exaggerated ideas prevail as to the
amount of these borrowings, and wiu as
serts alBO that they have been much re
duced In the last few months.
Bis; Iacreaso la Import.
Qne of the principal elements In the mis
calculation of the autumn money market
undoubtedly ties in the abnormal "male of
the country foreign trade. Imports huvo
been, largely In excess of normal, partly
owing to the natural revival of trade, which
has extended to foreign as well aa do
mestic products, and partly to the rush of
Imports In anticipation of the provisions
of the new tariff bill.
Not only have Imports enormously In
creased, but expoits have decreased. The
discrepancy here shown Is sufficient in It
self to account for much of the s.-arciiy
of exchange to provide remittance abroad.
Another elemertt Is the delay In the issu
ance of pew bonds by the great corpora
tions, for which Important foreign sub
scription wtre expected, which would rtrve
to take up part of the maturing foreign
Indebtedness of more temporary nature.
The bend market is sluggish and Joes not
invite to lair new offerings.
Demand for Stock rail Off.
The action of the s'tock market has shown
the contest going on against the unfavor
able Influence of the money situation. The
brilliant business outlook encourages the
obstinate holdings of stocks, even while
-'he narrowing money resources reduce the
J&mand. Tha rapid rise In foreign exchange
Urates last week showed plainly, howwer,
that foreign lenders of money here were In
sistent upon repayment of maturing obliga
tions. The movement of the Interior ex
changes, meanwhile, showed that ihe ue
mand for currency was not yet Justified.

Seventy-Five Good Men and True

The trial of the five alleged Overland

Qrlgware, Bhelton and Matthews, will begin
at 8 o'clock this afternoon In the United
States district court before Judge Thomas
The Jury will be selected from a panel
of about seventy-five, and It is believe
that the twelve men will be secured dur
ing the afternoon. The taking of testi
mony will hardly begin before Tuesday
About eighty witnesses are already under
summons and the trial will probably take
two weeks. The first of the witnesses to
testify will be the train crew of the robbed
train and the postal railway clerks who
were victims of the holdup. This evidence
will be given to establish the fact of the
train robbery, and after this will follow
the story of the recovery of the pistols and
masks of the robbers by the school chil
dren of the Brown Park school, and the
subsequent recovery of the rlflod mall
sacks in the loft of the Brown Park school
house, with the Identification of the parties
under arrest as connected with the robbery.
The defense vlll put up a strong fight
on the ground that the men under arrest
have not been shown to be In any way
connected with the robbery, directly or In
directly, and that the only evidence against
ttfem Is wholly circumstantial.

Brownsville Tribunal Finishes First
Stage of Its Work.
GREAT MASS OF TESTIMONY
It I Now Ready to Pa Vpon
Qualification of Discharged
Soldiers for Re-enlistment.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 24. After months
of tedious work the Brownsville court ot
Inquiry has almost completed the first stage
of Its work. In the second stage, soon to
be entered, the court will pass directly
on the qualification for re-enllstment In
the army of the non-commlssloned of
ficers and privates of companies B, C and
D of the Twenty-fifth regiment of Infan
try, some of whom were alleged to have
been Involved In the "shooting up" of
Biownsvllle. Tex., on the night of August
13, 1906. Up to this time the members df
the court, which is headed by Lieutenant
General Samuel B. M. Young, retired, have
been digesting and annotating tha great
mass of testimony which has figured In the
ca?e In the hearings before the senate com
mittee on military affairs, before courts
martial and In Inquiries conducted by army
officers and others. In other words, the
court haa been weighing in chambers, the
material already in hand having a bear
ing on the cane. This amounted ln aH-"to
fully 7,000 pages. More than 100 men were
discharged as a result of the orders given
by direction ' of President Roosevelt and
considerable Interest Is being manifested
as to what proportion - of that number
villi make an effort to secure re-enllstment.
The Brownsville court was appointed by
President Taft on April 7, last, and It has
one year from that date to make a final
report. Its personnel Is made up entirely
of retired officers who have worked all
summer In the consideration of the evi
dence already taken.
The discharge of tho men of the three
companies because of the refusal ot the
soldiers to assist in bringing to trial any
of their associates who may have been
guilty was a subject of heated discussion,
particularly in the senate during the last
conjfress. Senator Foraker leading tn the
