as. “Pomp", snot and instantly killed
John Wyatt in the room they were !
occupying together during last night.

bed. He called. “John! John! get up. j

ed no response and found that Wyatt J
was not in bed. He feared then that
he bad killed his friend and ran in
his night clothes to a negro's house

with him. A light was struck and

Washington) D. C., Jan. 3.—Fol
lowing years of public agitation and
discussion postal savings banks Jn
the United States Ixocame an ac
complished fact this morning with
the opening of forty-six banks, one in
*ach state and territory of the union.
These hanks are of an experimental
character and are intended to try
out the system. The result*, will be
closely followed by the officials of the
Postotfice Department with a view to
making any changes in the regula
tions ami forms as may l»e deemed
necessary before the system is gen
erally introduced throughout tin*
All of the experiment hanks are
in postofllccF of the second class and
in localities where the conditions are
believed to be exceptional^’ favorable
for the development of a postal sav
ings business. Several of the officers
rclected are in communities inhabited
by foreign-born Americans who are
remitting annually considerable sums
of money to thfcir native countries by
postal money orders. Much of (his
money It Is believed, will be kept in
the United States through the medium
of the postal savings banks.
