BANKRUPTCY PETITIONS FILED Nearly Two Hundred Thousand Dol lars Received tinea September , first la Not Vet At ' coaated For. NEW YORK, Sept. 24,-The postofflce authorities today took steps to lay their hands on a large sum, said to be' more than $100,000 in cash, which they believe was kept in reserve by Jared Flagg, Jr., and others, who are charged with vio lating the postal laws to defraud In vestors. Flagg and his alleged associates, former United States Treasurer Daniel N. Mor gan, F. Tennyson Neely, formerly a publisher, and others, spent Saturday and Sunday In Jail. Alvln M. Higgins, the lawyer who Is said to have been the legal adviser of Jared Flagg, was the first of the prison ers to secure his release on ball today, when the 110,000 bond required was fur nished. This afternon Flagg was released on a bond for S2G.O0O given by his brother. Ernest. Joshua Brown furnished a bonds man for S2.500. Brown Is accused of be one of the firm's 'cappers." To prevent the accused stock brokers from reaching their reserve fund before the federal authorities can get control of it, the postofflce Inspectors prepared to have some of Flagg's customers file a petition in bankruptcy against him. In addition to SS7.000 In cash, which the In spectors declare Flagg and his partners kept In a safe deposit box. It Is said that S 191 .000 has been received since Sep tember 1 from Investors anxious to profit by the firm's offr,of 63 per cent a year return. The federal officers have collected a number of witnesses, four of whom they say have turned over to Flagg's concern as much as JiW.OM. The books and correspondence seized In Saturday's raid reveal that money came from all parts of the country. By far the largest number of Investors out side of New York City it Is said live In Bridgeport.- Conn., the home of Daniel N. Morgan. Ithaca, N. Y., is said to be a close third and Franklin. Pa., next. The detectives say that the weekly luncheons given customers st a famous restaurant near Flagg's offices were a strong feature of his campaign. At these functions no expense was spared, al though the conversation seldom touched on business. A pretty 19-year-old girl Is ald fo have played an Important part in Flagg's fi nancial operations and the Inspectors hoped to question her today. The Inspectors exhibited a booklet written by Flagg entitled "How to Make .Money Ojit of Wall Street ' In which the author asserts that his system is founded on the "rocky bottom of mathematical ci talnty."

PLAIN TALK FOR FARMERS Henry Wallace Tells Them They Are Robbing the Soil. CONSERVATION CONGRESS OPENS Delegates Are Welcomed by Got ernor Hadley, Who Says Pres ent Methods Ar Waatefal Taft Speaks Tanlght. KANSAS CITY, Sept. 25. Plain words were used by speakers at the opening session of the third annual conservation congress here today In pointing out that the continuation of present day farming methods will result calamitously for the country. Not only a change In the treat ment of the soil but of the country people as well was urged. Only by bcttirlng social conditions on the fnrm, it was declared could the young persons be kept there. About 3.500 delegates nttended the opening session. Governor Herbert S. lladljy, of Mis souri, In welcoming the delegates to the btate urged advanced agricultural meth ods. He asserted that fully fotty per cent of the land In this country is be ing farmed bo that its productive qjsll ties are decreased. Farmers Called Soli Robbers. Henry Wallace of Dcs Moines, presi dent of the congress In replying to the welcome assailed the farmer as a soil robber and pleaded for more scientific farming. He cited that land in the I'nlted States produced crops but one half the size of those grown on poorer land In Europe. In his plea for a "back to the farm" movement and a betterment of social conditions In the country, he said the city "uses up men and families as it uses horses.'" The solution of the high cost of living problem lies In bet'.or farming methods, he said. J. B. White of K"a.i-.s City, fharrran of the executive committje-utli'tred cne of the responses to tne welcoming speeches. Mr. White will ii.akc hlk prin cipal address on Wjdnesliy Tbe afternoon program included an ad dress by Judge Ben B. Lindsay of Denver on "The Country Child vs. the City Child." Routine business occupied the greater part of the remainder of the morning and forenoon sessions. Governor Hartley's Address. The governor tpoke in part as follows: "I'p to the present time in this country we have been lecuiiarly fortunate in that our production has exceeded consumption and the supply has always been greater than the demand. The result has been that the American people alone of all the people In the world have eaten the same kind of food. And no stronger in fluence could exist an ii gainst the crea tion of classes and car j in our popula tion than for all the iiople to cat the fame kind of food. "But with the consumption increasing more rapidly than production, and the consequent increase in the cost of the necessities of life there will come a time when many will not be able te secure the sajnc kind of food that Is enjojed by others. Then will there come a disturb ing and dungerous influence that will threaten our society and our Institutions. "Statistics tell us of a constantly de creasing surplus of production. If this tendency continues in a few years we will consume all the products of our grain and of our live stock. And when this condition is followed by a time when it will be necessary to import the necessi ties of life then will exist conditions that will be the causa of concern. "There Is no state In the union which illustrates more completely both the ne cessity and the value of a practical ap plication of the policy of conservation than Missouri. Of the 44,000.000 of acres which constitute the state little more than one-half has ever been touched by a plow and in Its 20.000.000 acres of un cultivated soli there are 17,600.000 acres of DIE WHEN FRENCH WARSHIP SINKS La Liberie, One of Largest Battle ships in Nayy, Destroyed by Explosion at Toulon.

The death loss Is variously estimated from 350 up to 600 or more. The killed Include officers and men of the Liberie, and also a large number of those from nearby warships. The first alarm of fire was sounded shortly after 6 o'clock. This was fol lowed by four successive explosions of Increasing Intensity as the firs neared the powder magazines, when at 6:S6 o'clock a deafening explosion literally tore the great warship to pieces and' sent It to the bottom a mass of twisted wreckage. The fierce explosion was so great that great fuwuree were opened In tbe steel armor and frame work of the warship. A piece of armor plate was hurled against the cruiser Republlque with great force, damaging its plates. Scores of, bodies were hurled high Into the air with hut fragments of frame work,' armor, burst ing shells and the suffocating smoke from the exploded magazines.
