The stock railed a. point after touch
ing 85tt and no more offerings were
pressed for sale.
The long decline in the shares, extend

the various difficulties, financial and
otherwise, of the New Haven system, and
the reduction, in the dividend, 8 to 6 per
cent. The Intimation given recently by
Howard Elliott, newly elected head of the
system, that a further reduction might be
deemed advisable, la believed to have been
a factor In the renewed decline.

(From a- Staff 'Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Sept. I8.-Speclal.)-Dr; Ed
ward: Hls'lop, reporting- for the ' Omaha
district to the 'Nebraska - Methodist con
ference, today gave the story or tornado
relief for the churches under his super-
Vision. After commenting" on the death
of Casslus' Bhlmer and all the 'members
of the Daniels family save, one, Dr.
"But If the tornado will long be re
membered, even longer will It be, remem
bered the generous sympathy and relief
that came to stricken Omaha. From city,
hamlet and farm gifts of money, colthlng,
foodw and furniture poured In. The ap

stricken churches was generously re
sponded to. When the 'drouth In some
sections is considered the , giving repre
sents herolo sacrifice, The total fund for
the restoration of Methodist churches
amounts to 8,0K7.65.
Work of Restoration.
"The work of restoration has gono
steadily forward. Trjnlty church, under
the leadership of Thomas Blthell, has
been restorod, not as It was, but nearly
so, at an expense of $6,000. So. far they
have received J2.WS.SJ from the relief
fund. McCabe has not begun to rebuild,
but Is making the best use It can of the
damaged building. The reason for delay
Is that a feeling has grown up that the
new McCabe must be a much better
church than the old,
"The demolishing of a dwelling by the
tornado threw onto the market at a sac
rifice figure the lota Just west jot the
church. Brother Underwood 1 and his
alert trustees bought the ground. No one
who looks the situation over with an eye
to future Methodism in the growing dis
trict beyond Forty-first and Farham can
doubt the wisdom of the purchase. Mc
Cabe has up to date received JJ.057.79
from the relief fund. Southwest chapel
Is to be rebuilt, work on the basement
being already under way. This church
wal entirely destroyed by the tornado.
The new church will be of concrete
blocks, costing about 83,000. They have
received up to the present time 1,000
from the relief fund." ,
"Ralston, though the chUrch building
was not damaged, was so ' crlppljd by
loss of Its Industries for four or five
months that relief ot II to from the relief
fund was given the church on pastoral
support. Tn addition all of the above
churches received aid from the general

out of funds collected by the board for
