Reports of additional trust company con

In point of fact the Hankers Trust com

Relations between the Morgan Interests !
and the Manhattan TTust company have
always been Intimate, though the latter Is
hot regarded as a Morgan appendage. It
is, perhaps, significant that the building

company Is to be razed soon to make way
for a thlrty-tory building to be erected
by tWe Hankers' Truat company.
Two Handred Millions.
Deposits of the Bankers' Trust company I

the two companies. If combined with
those now In process of absorption by
"J. P. Morgan and associates," would
total In deposits more than $200,000,000.
National banking Interests do not took
with uniform favor on the Increase In
trust company power. It was pointed out
today that Inasmuch as the law makes
It possible for the trust companies to hold
stocks and to enjoy, advantages forbidden
to banks by the provisions of tie national
banking act. It would be easily possible
for the larger trust companies to make
up many underwriting propositions which
the large bunks of Wall street, under the
law, found it Inexpedient to handle.

IOWAN INVENTOR OF TORPEDO
Fred Ikennan of Eldora Wini For
tune from Government
TEST HAS BEEN COMPLETED
Missile Devised by 'Veteran In
Soldiers Home Proves of Great
Value In Defensive
ELDORA, la., Jan. 4 (Speclal.)-Twelve
months ago a man of very modest means,
today rich beyond his wildest hopes; that
Is the story of Fred Ikerman. until very
recently of Eldora, who hns Just received
$100,000 from the government for a naval
torpedo, Invented for coast defonse. After
a test lasting over a period of five months.
during which time Ikerman demonstrated
the torpedo for $10 a day and his expenses
the government has finally adopted his
torredo and bought the patent.
8everal periodicals of late have been
telling of a new torpedo that the govern
ment has been Ustlng. This was Iker
man's torpedo. The cruslng of the battle
ship Texas and Its maneuvers during .the
last few months have been common knowl
edge, but It was not generally known that
this battleship was carrying Ikerman and
his pitent from place to place to demon
strate the torpedo before verious naval
officers. During all this time Ikerman has
bf en on the Texas.
No description of the torpedo is obtain
able owinff to Its being a government
secret. The following expression of a
naval officer during the demonstration of
It in the Philippines indicates the high
value at which It Is held: "Give men,"
said the officer, "twelve men and a suf
ficient number of these torpedoes and I
can successfully withstand an attack from
the combined navies of the entire world."
Ikerman has said that from the time the
torpedo started up to the time It strikes
It is under perfect control. The torpedo
has a nine-mile range.
I Inmates of Snldlera . Home. '
Ikerman is an old soldier of the civil
War, he having served In an Illinois regl
Inent. At various times during the lust
few years he has been a member of the
National Soldiers' Home at Quincy, 111.
It was there that tho patent was perfected.
It was not until he had written the secre
tary of be navy twice that that official
deigned to give notice to the letter by
writing Commandant Summerville of the
home, asking him what he knew. Sum
merville replied that the Invention was
worth Investigating. It was this Btorter
that brought Ikerman's torpedo to the at
tention of the department.
Ikerman Is well known In Eldor and
Hardin county, where he has lived for
years. He was formerly a coal miner.
Later he worked a truck farm near here,
and only last summer he hauled clay for
ono of the local tile factories. As a
Christmas present for one of his daugh
ters he recently purchased a large fruit
farm five miles from Kansas City. Mo.,
paying $30,000 for It. On this farm he ex
pects to spent the rest of his life.
The Texas landed In New Orleans re
cently and Ikerman was given transporta
tion to Eldora. After remaining a few
days he left last week to Join his daughter
on the Missouri fruit farm.

Marahalltovrn la Saloonless.
MARSHALLTOWN, la., Jan. 4. (Special)
Today for the first time in many years
this city was without a saloon. None were
opened until evening, because it was not
until late in the day that any of the per
mits, issued by the council Friday, were
signed by Mayor O. L. Ingledue. This
afternoon he signed five of the twelve,
but refused to sign the other seven. As a
result none of the five were able to get li
censes until late in the afternoon.
Two of the seveil Mayor Ingledue rcfusei
positively to sign. He is still holding out
for P. II. Gifford's saloons, which were
shut up by the council, conteding that he
will sign no more until Gifford's two re
maining places are given, permits by the
council. The council Is "leery" of granting
permits to Gifford's other two places lest
Attorney J. II. Eiyrmayej has promised,
It be Indicted by the grand Jury, as County
If permits to the Glfford saloons are issued.

Feverish Tone la Reflected In. Condi
tion of Storks on Wall
NEW YORK, Jan. 4. Extreme foverish
ness characterized today's money market
and this tone was reflected in the unset
tled condition of the stock market. The
opening rate for call loans was 8 per cent;
it then went back to 8, and then recovered
After the opening demand had been met
the rate fell to 6, and during the noon
hour tho prevailing figure was 8 per cent.
The greattr part of the money loaned
came from uptown banks and trust com
panies, as well as from private corpora
tions. Out-of-town banks, includipg Bos
ton, Philadelphia and Chicago Institutions,
also loaned money here. The failure of the
regular Wall street Institutions to lend
considerable amounts Just now Is attributed
to their depleted reserve.
