It declared: ‘As a the means ed in Indiana in mandatory laws just | to be employed by the railroad com passed requiring the Installation of pany to prevent the possibility of the signal equipment to safeguard the recurrence of such an accident 1 re movement of trains. According to a commend the employment, tf such lit bulletin of the League tor Public Safe- piactlcabie and safe, of a system by ty In Chicago the road which fails to which a train can be automatically stopped in the event of the failure of the englneman to observe a signal set against him." The equipment ap proved by Cade included track trips which, regardless of weather condi tions, in case of need produce service braking of the passing train, avoiding the dangerous emergency stop, but accomplishing the purpose in a aim pie, direct way. Jt also protects switches.opening from main tracks and registers in the 'engine cab. for the enginemen's information on the blackest night, the location of the train. Loan Sharks to bt Curbed. The rapsclly of the loan shark of Chicago and Illinois will be curbed by a bill now pending in the iegisla ture which has the endorsement of the Legal Aid Society and several clubs and commercial organizations. Persistent warfare has resulted In pulling the fangs of the money loan ers, who a few years ago openly, and even now In secret, levy a tribute of 30 and 40 per cent on their victims. An investigation fins shown that some $2.1,000,000 Is Invested In the "loan shark" business, of which $3,100,000 is employed by 121 offices in Chicago, according io the report made to the Russell Sage Foundation. That re port gave instances where the extra fees, brokerage, protest fees and col lection charges added to the interest charges made the total rate paid as b'.gh as 1731 per cent per annum. Oth er instances were found where men and women had been paying for years on a debt of this kind, and then owed several tiroes as much as the original principal. The Apmadoc bill fixes a maximum of 3 per cent per month which may be charged for loans upon household goods, wearing apparel, or mechanic's tools, and 4 per cent for the assignment of wages. A limit of $1,000 is placed upon any loan in this classification. It was drawn by the committee which included George High, representing the Industrial club: M. V. Wellington, the Legal Aid society; John V. Farwell, the^ Com mercial club; A. C. nisei, the" City dub, and Marvin B. Poole, of the As sociation of Commerce. One of the most important events c r the year In the church history and the spiritual advancement of the com munity will be the Bible Conference to be begun at the First Baptist church next Sunday and to extend in meetings from day to day for elgbt days—concluding on the evening of Sunday the 26th. There are many distinguished preachers, able schol ars, earnest Bible students, successful exponents of the scriptures who will be present and will add their best work—the crystallzation of years of study and prayer and experience—to the program. There wii! bo many from neighboring towns who will be In Athens all or a part of the time of the conference and hundreds who last year enjoyed the conference of 1910 are already planning lo arrange their work to attend every session and hear every lecture, Blble-rending, ad dress during the eight days.

The rail road commission is given authority to extend the time for installation If good reason appears and also to pass on the form of signals adopted, It be ing specified that “any other form of block or other signaling system now ot hereafter devised or used which thtll reasonably sente the safety ot life and property,” may be tnclnded under the statutory requirement. This advanced legislation may be accepted ns a model In other states, and If It should be, the steam (tnd electric roads of the United Slates would be compelled to Invest some $300,000,000 In signal apparatus. The enormous savings to the railroads resulting I torn properly safeguarded train movement as well as the public need for protection to life and property are the reasons which caused the Indiana legislature to enact tills bill. Copies of the measure will be put In the hands of state officials together with the reasons why the measure should ho generally adopted. Signal Expert Kilfed. Faith in automatic methods of stop ping trains when visual signala are disregarded, which by a chain of un usual circumstances recently cost the life of a Chicago signal expert, Harry If. Cade, at Batavia, .V. Y„ has been Justified by the coroner's verdict re garding the wreck In which he was killed. The wreck was caused by the failure of a following train to obey signals to stop, the engineer having suddenly become ill. Mr. Cade was among the killed. He was then re turning to Chicago from Albany where he hid urged the merits of the Collord-Rohe devices which he be lieved solved the problem of automat ic atops without the drawbacks found In all which so far have been reported on by the Block Signal and Train Con trol Board of the fnterstate Commerce Commission. That he should meet his death under circumstances which the equipment he had recommended would have prevented was made dou bly unusual by the coroner's verdict FAMILY AWAITS HIM IN ALBUQUERQUE.

(Special to tile Banner.) liogansvillc, Ga., March 15.—The "college on wheels" made an early stare from Xewnau today and reached Hogansvllle at $ o'clock, where it was a elcomed by a great crowd of people from tbe surouuding country. There were many farmers ot Troup, Meri wether and Heard counties at the sta tion when the train came to a stop. Some of them had driven miles, and the earliness of the hour had made it necessary /for them to leare their homes at the crack of dawn. The cltlsens of‘Hogansvllle, had made elaborate preparations for the reception of the train and the enter tainment of tJiose aboard. A platform (tad been erected near tbe depot and the speeches Were delivered from tbit Instead of tbe Satcar. as usual. Sub- tcquently the cars of the train were thrown open for inapectlon and tne crowd passed slowly through, listen ing to the lucid explanations of the several exhibits. Dr. A. M. Soule, president of the State College of Agriculture, Joined tbe party Just before the train left Xewnan this morning, and waa In general charge at Hogansvllle.

The stores were closed throughout the stay of the train and the school children were given a half holiday, in order that they, too, might bear the speeches snd see the Interesting ex hibits. The Hogansvllle band waa at the station when the trait arrived, snd pending the formalities played a con cert of popular music. Laditt in the Cab. Xewnan. (la.. March 15.—Fifteen miles In 19 minutes, with a charming matron at the throttle and a fair young lady at the fire box, is what the big mogul pulling in the college on wheels did Tuesday afternoon be tween Palmetto and Xewnan, on the (Vest Point railroad. Mrs. D. B. Bullard, wife of the for mer mayor of Palmetto, and now a democratic state committeeman, sat la side T. D. McDonald, the veteran, and helped him engineer the monster locomotive, while Miss Catherine Reid, daughter of Judge C. 8. Reid, of the Stone Mountain circuit, occupied ' an easy seat" on tbe oppoelte side of the engine on the lookout for possible disaster ahead. It waa a new and novel sensation for the young women and possible the first instance on record in Georgia where members of the fair sex "manned" both sides of a locomotive doing 55 miles an hour. In perfect safety. And when the run had been done snd the train had halted at Xewnan, Mrs. Bullard and Miss Reid were the toast* of the tour, dividing honors on ly with the West Point, railroad, whose praises were generally sung. As tbe locomotive plowed forward, the engine was as steady as a clock, the drive of her pistons as regular, as free and as easy a* tbe movements of an adjusted Elgin. And .the farmers In the fields quit their plows to wave a hearty greeting to the fair women cn either aide of the locomotive, who leaned far out of tbe cab to watch the steady stroke ot tbe drive wiieel a* It drove the pistons with each explosion. "No more Pullman cart for me,” raid Mist Reid, as she gracefully alighted from the engine when it came to a standstill at Xewnan. “My first and only experience on * locomo tive on the West Point has convinced me that the ease and comfort ot Pullmans are mythical at compared Twenty»Ninth State Cod- vention For Georgia and Florida V.
