Company Ready To Go On Immedi ately but if There Is Delay Offer May Be Withdrawn. A special meeting of the civic finance comm't'ee will be held this evening to deal with the station and hotel project and receive the report of Mayor Scott and Aid. Davidson respecting yesterday's conference. The city council will deal with the question tomorrow night. The mayor and Aid. Davidson conid not agree on a definite report, so the matter is submitted practically .without recommendation. It reads as follows and Is addressed to council: SUB-COMMITTEE BEPOKT. "Gentlemen. - "The undersigned were appointed delegates by resolution of council passed on the 7th instant, to confer with Sir Wilfrid Laurler and Mr. Charles M. Hays, the general manager or the Grand Trunk Railway company, on the question of a site for the proposed station and hotel to be erected In Ottawa by the railway company. "On the 22nd Instant we met Mr. Hays and the premier in the latter' office and had a full discussion on the different proposed locations for station and hotel. Mr. Hays had his architect, Mr. Gilbert, -with him, and exhibited a ground plan showing the station facing Rideau street at right angles to the canal with its north-eastern corner nine feet four inches and its northwestern corner thirty-six feet from the street line; and the hotel on the southwest corner of Major's Hill park, with a frontage of one hundred and thirty-five feet and a depth on Its western side of two hundred and eighty-five feet We beg to submit the plan which was handed to us. Mr. Hays stated that his company were prepared to commence work at once on the station and the hotel provided the city would grant the fixed assessment on both buildings which his company desired, but he would not consider any other site for either building than the locations as shown on the plan attached. Mr. Hays was quite firm and stated this decision to be final and Irrevocable. Sir Wilfrid Laurjer Xpresed his approval of ths location of both station- aRrWW-trrffirffoatPd on the plan. "We deeply regret the decision of the Grand Trunk Railway company In this matter, ana reel very strongly that some other site for the hotel should have been selected, so that the park might have remained undisturbed. "We therefore lay these facts before you so that you may take such action as you think best. (Pd.) "D'ARCY SCOTT. "J A 9. DAVIDSON." MAYOR'S VIEW. Mayor Scott, having been seen by the newspaper men this morning, stated that he realized that the question of the hotel and station now before the council was 'by far the most serious one which council has yet had to deal with. "The Issue Is very clearly defined," said his .worship. ' "It is either hotel and station on the plans suggested by the Grand Trunk or no hotel at all and an Inferior station. I was much opposed to the park site for the hotel when I learned it was suggested some months ago, and I informed both the Grand Trunk and the prime minister that it was objectionable. Since then strong efforts have been made to In duce the government and the Grand Trunk to agree on some other site for the hotel, and until yesterday it was hoped that some solution of the difficulty might have been arrived at; but now the matter Is ended, and as I said before, we must either agree to the Grand Trunk's plans or give up our long cherished idea of the erection of a magnificent hotel and station In Ottawa. For my part I have decided that the interests of the city will be best served .by securing the immediate construction of the hotol and station as proposed, end I am prepared to advise the city council to give the Grand Trunk 'the fixed assessment agreed to. "I hope the council will seriously con COT BIG DAMAGES Mrs. Warner Sent to Insane Asylum While She Was Sane. New York, Oct. 23. Shortly after midnight this morning the Jury in the case of Mrs. Ellen E. Kenyon-Warner, who sued Dr. Flavius Packer and Dr. Sidney D. Wilgus In the supreme court at New City, Rockland county, for $f0.004 damages because they adjudged her Insane and caused her commitment to the Middletown Insane asylum, rendered a verdict for the plaintiff. Mrs. Warner, who is a well known author and educator, is awarded a verdict of $25,000. The Jury found that she was sane and rational on July 13. 1904, when she was examined by the two alienists and that they were negligent in making their examination. Cnde.t Vice Begal Patronage.

If we agree with the Grand Trunk ,we will have over two million dollars spent in Ottawa within the next few months. We will have employment for hundreds of workmen and skilled mechanics of all kinds. We will have a magnificent hotel second to none on the continent, which will at tract hundreds of wealthy American and English tourists to our city an nually. They will come not merely for a day or two, but Ottawa being such an attractive city, visitors will come here for weeks who .will spend large sums of money with our merchants. The hotel will employ several hundred hands. Our butchers, our grocers, our market gardeners, our coal merchants, milk dealers, etc., will all profit by this large establishment in our midst. We will have a, grand central station for all railways which will supply a long- felt want. The municipality will get an annual revenue of over $15,000 from property which today Is practically un remunerative, and the only drawback to the accomplishment of all this Js that a few hundred feet of a park will be occupied iby a magnificent building instead of being covered by a fe,w trees, 'beautiful though they be, which we see In the park today. "There Is a wrong impression abroad that the hotel Is going to Intercept the view of the new government buildings to be erected on Mackenzie avenue. Unless one would be in the park north or the proposed hotel site, the build ings woma not be seen em if the hotel Is not built, because todav the view is almost entirely obscured by the woes in tne park. We will still have our park, but Instead of it being the size It Is today, it w ill be twice as large oy its extension northward to Nepean Point, which the government has prom ised win be done with the $luO,00 which the Grand Trunk are to pay for the site. We need not fear that the hotel will detract from the beauties of the park to those .who frequent it, as Sir Wilfrid Laurier n his wisdom has thoroughly safeguarded the interests of the public fcy placing the necessary restrictions in the order-in-council granting the site to the railway company so that In neither the erection of the building nor the maintenance of the hotel thereafter will It be detrimental to the 'beauties of the park. "I am requesting Mr. Hays to have his architect bring the plans to the finance committee meeting tonight and to the council meeting tomorrow night so that they will be thoroughly understood. There are many people who have condemned the park site without a sufficient knowledge of the plans, and I am convinced that upon giving the matter careful study many supposed objections to the site will disappear. "It was thought that we might have left the hotel question' in abeyance and got the Grand Trunk to go on with the station, but Mr. Hays, when spoken to yesterday, said 'No,' that he .would not take up one without the other. If the hotel was not to be built he would not build the station on the lines sug gested, but ' would put up some less expensive building which, of course. would not look as well as the station suggested. Mr. Hays raid to me yesterday before leaving Ottawa lliat he sincere ly hoed a favorable decision Mould be arrived at at once, because he said he was prepared to commence work the day after council decided In favor of granting a fixed assessment. He said he had full. Instruction from his board and lie money was ready to go on with the work, but If there was delay the board might change Its mind and cancel Ills authority. In sneaking of the work for the excavation and basement lie said that satisfactory tenders for both station and hotel had been received and the contract would be let at once, provided the fixed .wosment was granted. Mr. Hays hoped that they would le able to have the foundations con structed this year." CIAHTS'- CAUSEWAY Basaltic Columns Being Removed Philadelphia. Are to Dublin, Oct. 23. There is much Indignation throughout the North of Ireland at a statement that a portion of the world famed Giants' Causeway Is about to be removed to America. The first consignment, weighing two hundred tons, it is. stated, will be shipped to Philadelphia. These wonderful basaltic columns, though In private ownership, are regarded as a national possession.

O'Leary today announced his candidacy for alderman In St. George's ward at the forthcoming elec tion. Mr. O'Leary remained out of the field last year but will be in the fight to be finish this time. The Grand Trunk station and hotel are proposed to be in St. George ward and Mr. O' Leary Is one of those who think that the people of the ward want the pro ject of Sir Wilfrid Laurier and the G. T. R. to go ahead. Incidentally he inclines to the belief shared by many others that the attitude of Aid. Hastey and Aid. Kilt in relation to the mat ter and their opposition to the plan does not reflect the disinterested senti ment of the ward. Mr. O'Leary's entry in the field is likely to make it hot for some people. WAS VRIGHT FARMER Thomas Wilson Died as He Was Preparing to Thresh. While preparing to thresh his grain Thomas Wilson, a well known farmer of the township of Wright, was seized with heart failure and dropped dead on his barn floor. Wilson was a weal thy farmer and has lived In that vi cinity for years. He was 45 years of age and leaves a wife and several chll dren. ilson had concluded his season s work and had set a threshing mill in his barn floor. Along with his wife and family he went to the barn and while making preparations to begin work he fell to the floor. His wife did not real ize what had happened and when she came to her senses her husband was quite dead. The deceased was a highly respected citizen and his wife and family have the sincere sympathy of the community. MUST KEEP FAST Dispensation for All Saints Day, Not on Thanksgiving. Next Sunday in all the Catholic churches of the diocese a papal dispensation allowing Catholics the use of flesh meat on Friday, November 1st. the feast of All Saints, will be read. Such dispensations are usually granted whenever Friday falls upon a feast day as, for instance, when the feast of the Epiphany occurs on that day of the week. However, the announcement will also be made that Catholics have no right or pretext to use meat on the eve of All Saints, which this year happens to be selected as Thanksgiving day. It Is a day of fast and abstinence with Catholics and must be strictly observ ed as such regardless of whatever secu lar holiday may fall upon that date.

SAVED FAST EXPRESS Miss Mabel Wheeling's Great Presence of Mind. Kipecial to the Evening Cltlseo I Welland, Oct. 21 By her presence of mind and prompt action Miss Mabel Wheeling, a country school teacher, on Monday nigh k saved the fast Michigan Central express from almost certain derailment and probably averted a great railway disaster. Miss Wheeling was walking along the tracks from this town about nine o'clock at nisht when she discovered a pile of iron on one ot the rails on the westbound track. Taking in the situation at a glance she tried to lift the heavy pieces from the rails. For several minutes she tolled, knowing that the speedy express was almost certain to arrive at any minute. However, her strength was not sufficient to even lift one end of the steel. Retaining her presence of m'nd she dashed back to the signal tower on the west side of the can.il. Arriving there breathless and exhaust ed she told the signalman of the condition of the track. Without delay, as the train was almost due, the station was tailed up by telephone, and Just as the express neared the semaphore the lights flashed the danger signal and the engine was brought to a stop. The iron was removed from the track by some of the railway officials, who went out from Welland station en a handcar. It was stated that two rail spreaders and a fish plate were placed on the Inside rail in such a manner as would surely have caused the engine to run Into the ditch. Later Edward Palmer, aged 20, was arrested and pleaded guilty, but gave no explanation of why he wanted to wreck the train. MEET HERE IN OCT. Next Baptist Conven- tion To Be in Ottawa.

CRISIS IN WALL STREET PITTSBURG IS INVOLVED Violent Liquidation in Stocks Electrics Suffer Heavily, Vhile Other Stocks Decline in Sympathy. Pittsburg Stock Exchange Closed Conditions in Other Cities Continue Satisfactory. New York, Oct. 23, Wall St., noon. Vlilent liquidation followed a raliy. and some favorites sold lower than at the opening. Support was evident, however. Reports of financial embarrassment drove Westinghouse Electric company to new low levels. It dropped by intervals of 1 to 4 points on sales of 100 share lots to 42. General Electric weakened in sympathy with a fall of 13 1-2. Inactive slocks continued to make w ide declines on small rales, but the general list was firmer when a number of banks renrewed loans at 4 per cent., and a number vf prominent stocks rose a fraction over last night Bunds were weak. KNICKERBOCKER CLOSED. The cleuring house committee was In conference with several bankers at 10.30 a.m. After taking charge of the Knickerbocker Trust company Acting Supt. of Banks Skinner said: "Under, advice of the attorney-general, I have taken possession of the Knickerbocker Trust company and Its branch offices. The support to the Institution which was expected yesterday has not been furnthed. A bank examiner Is In charge of each office. Payments will be received on obligations due to the trust company, but no payment will be made by the examiner In charge. Payments should be in cash. Collateral will not be surrendered until It 1b shown that It Is not pledged for other indebtedness to the Institution." James G. Cannon, vice-president of the Fourth National bank and a mem- ,er of the clearing house committee. appointed to examine the National banks which have been under criticism, announced today that the condition of the banks as shown at the clearing house was first class. Although a few of them might have to be assisted, he said that conditions were fast becoming normal. Several prominent bankers called on Secretary Cortelyou at the sub-treasury to receive suggestions. A report was started that there was a run upon the Morton Trust ccmpany, but an in vestigation shows It to be untrue. A thorough examination of the trust company's finances made In the last 24 hours shows that It has over TO per cent, cash means. J. Plcrpont Morgan practically assumed command in financial circles here today. He is striving to bring or. der out of chaos and see what can be done to protect the large interests that are now In Jeopardy. RUMORS DENIED. Fifteen bank examiners sent out this morning to various parts of the city reported at 11 o'clock that there had been nothing in the nature of a run on any financial Institutions except the Trust company of America, and that conditions at all other banks and trust companies were normal. U. S. SECRETARY ON THE SPOT. Secretary Cortelyou said this morn ing: "I have nothing to add to my statement of last night. I will be here throughout the day and as long as the situation seems to need my presence. ELECTRICS ARE HIT. Westinghouse Electric declined rap idly, selling down to 46 at 12 o'clock, a decline of 33 7-8 from last night. At 12 4'elock General Electric sold at 94 1-2, a decline of $12 a share from yesterday's closing. At noon money was lending at 70 per cent. AFTER THE MONA. More than 1,500 persons, mostly Italians, stormed the uoors of the Dollar Savings bank when its doors opened. Police were called to control the half frenzied crowds. PITTSBURG FEEL.S IT. The P.; thro ing C. J nuu.- Ptock Exchange Closed, Awaiting Developments. t !urg financial circles were mi into an uproar at the open-if business today when Secretary . ifolman made the following an-o Jient: "At the request of the Pittsburg cleai i..g house and at the suggestion of the numbers and board of directors of iuf Pittsburg stork exchange it has been closed for the day." Immediately following this. President R. C. Hall Issued a statement reading as follows: "The Security Investment company finds itself Involved. ThU will necessitate a temporary suspension or re-receivership of the Westinghouse Eiec-tric and Manufacturing company, the Westinghouse Machine company and the Nernst Lamp company. The manufacturing companies are in an absolutely solvent condition. The condition of the Security Investment company will in no way effect the Union Switch and Signal company and the Westinghouse Air Brake company. I would like It explicltely understood that it was at the request of the Pittsburg clearing house that we have suspended trading temporarily." The petition for a receiver for the concerns named, It Is nid, will be made today. Bankers interested h?re express no doubt of pulling the companies through successfully. The embarrassment of the concerns Is attributed to inability to secure funds on account of the stringency in the money market. The amount Involved will run up into millions. PHILADELPHIA IS O. K. Philadelphia, Oct. 23. The local stock market opened steady, prices being about even with last night's closing figures with the exception of Lehigh Valiey, which was off 1 3-8 and Eiec- tric Storage Battery down 2 to 34. In financial clrclts it was stated that the Philadelphia banks are all sound. Local banks have discouraged specula- j Hon. Consequently Philadelphia stock ' brokers have not extended their credit to dangerous proportions. BOSTON IS CALM. Boston, Oct. 23. Undisturbed conditions continued in financial circles here today. The stock market opened fractionally lower. WASHINGTON QUIET. Washington, Oct. 21 The Washington stock exchange showed no effect today of the New York situation. There is a general understanding among local brokers to avoid any large deals during the present excited condition of the outside market. ENGLISH OPINION. London, Oct. 23. The financial crisis In New York is attracting the greatest attention here. The ftnancial editorial writers today are ot the opinion that although the effect will be felt here. It Is not likely to be felt to any great extent because British operators and Investors of recent months, gradually have been freeing themselves from commitments and the Influence of Wall street, consequently some sections of the stock exchange will not be much Influenced by the crista. The "Mornln? Post" believes that the financial troubles In America are accumulating too rapidly, for temporary palliatives to have much effect and it would be better for every one concerned that the crisis should ba hastened Instead of delayed. PARIS WATCHFUL. Paris, Oct. 23. After a better opening on the Bourse today the tone became undecided, while awaiting the result of the financial developments in New York. GLEANED IN OTTAWA. During the course of the afternoon the more active Issues tended towards a rally. The treasury department continued to extend aid to the banks by depositing government funds.
