This close holding of Reading securities is what has made the market fluctuations uncertain for outsiders have been afraid to step In fpr fear of getting badly There is less Reading stocks held In this section than there were years ago because the cutting of the melon was so long time coming, and meantime there were so many great disappointments, and sacrifices shares to protect loan accounts, that Reading stock holders in the coal region gradually got rid of their hpidings wJth the exception of- some, large blocks of bonds. There are several old time estates that' aire supposed to have each of them hundreds of thousands of dollars Invested in Reading general four mortgage certificates, and a- few years ago one Pottsville prominent mining, man, since dead, was to carry a million dollars In Reading securities, but it is talked Of that his estate gradually got rid of much of this.

What the J.P.Morgan's interests control is unknown, but when the senior J.P.Morgan died several years ago his estate inventory showed up only a couple thousand dollars invested in Reading stocks.

The attitude of the Turks made an excellent impression upon the conferes. Prmier Briand of France declared after the sitting that the conference had gone a long way toward a settlement. The solution of the Near East problem relating to Turkey which will be reached by the allied supreme council will be to send an aHied commission of inquiry to the Near East to examine on the spot the population claims of Greece and Turkey in the disputed provinces of Smyrna and Thrace, it was forecast in well informed circles here today.

He Was born in a son of the late Lewis W. and: Anna- W.Trout-man, and came to Pottsville in the year J866.

In view of the freeze up and the snow on the ground the hill officials today practically decided, to leave road matters go until the next term. At least three boroughs in the lower section of the county and as many townships were scheduled for a call to court as a result of the road conditions and if the weather loosens up it is possible that they may yet be forced to take prompt action to save themselves from indkitments. In view of the open character of tho winter prior to this week the Court took the position that the road officials could have kept their territory in better shape and it was the intention tq ask 'explanations and prompt repairs.

The district attorney's office on Thursday prepared to make its bimonthly tour of the county prison to get the pleas of the prisoners and it is expected that the list will be cut down by several cases when the work is completed. Deputies planned to take the pleas on Thursday afternoon. The work of preparation for criminal court will start in earnest next week. B.J.Maginnis and RJP.
