There is nothing that will keep you in condition and help better to ward o£E diseases tl ian Vinol. There are many people who last winter took Vinol simply as a preventative and have proved conclusively that by keeping themselves in good condition they escaped the grippe that attacked other members of the family who neglect ed to take the same precautions. we cjan tell those who have had thé grippe what to take to help them towards speedy recovery. It is this same VinoL Take il; when you first have the grippe. It will not go so hard with you.

"I bought a bottle of Vinol for my wife aiid two children who were suffering from the after effects of grippe. *^hey had taken several remedies without doing them E ny good.

WEAVER RÍIHD-M6NALLYS Everett-Moore Syndicate, Which Has Been Booming Telephones and Trolleys. AFFAIRS IS A COMMITTEE'S HANDS Found It Hard to Obtain Money to Meet Current Liialjilities, AI-thoush Solvent. Cleveland, O., .Tan. 3.—The financial affairs of the Everett-Moore syndicate, owniug: 01- coDtroIIiug a nuuil)er of urban and iuterurban electric railways and an extensive system of local and long-distance telephone lines in Ohio iinil Mielii.sian, passed hito tlie control of .a committee composed of seven prominent bankers of this city yesterday. This action was taken, it is stated, as the result of temporary financial embarrassment on the pait of the syndicate, which has for some time past been affected by the stringency in the money market. The committee chosen has been at w'orlt investigating the affairs of the syndicate, and expresses the firm belief that the concern is entirely solvent, and that its embarrassment will be only temporary. Properties Controlled by the Syndicate. Tlie Everett-Moore syndicate is accredited with controlling more than 1,200 miles of urban and internrban electric lines in Ohio and Michigan, with many new extensions still in course of construction. Among the telephone properties owned outright or controlled by the syndicate are the Cuyahoga Telephone company, of this city, witli upward of lO.iKK) subscribers: the United States Telephone company (long distance), the Federal Telephone company, the Stark County (O.) Telephone company, the Columbiann County (O.) Teleplione company; the People's Telephone company, of Detroit; the Wood County (O.^ Telephone company, and a number of others in wliich the Federal Telephone company is the controlling factor. street Jtailway Property Solvent. Among tlie more important electric street raih-oad properties In wJiicli the syndicate is largely interested are the Cleveland Electric Kailway compan>, the Detroit United Railway company, the Toledo Railw'ay and Light com-pauj"-, the Northera Ohio Traction company, the Cleveland. Tainesville and Eastern K;^Uway company, the Detroit and Toledo Shore Line Railroad company. and the Lake Sliore Elcctric Railroad company. All of tliese lines rre declared by the committee to be, witli scarcely an exception, in good physical condition, perfectly solvent and in no wise embarrassed. The aggregate capitalization of all tlie various, properties owned or controlled by the syndicate is said to be about iPlSO,-000,000. Expert accountants liave been employed by the committee in charge to examine and report upon tlie condition of all the constituent companies. No statement has as yet been given out. indicating the liabilities of the syndicate. BIEN IN CHARGE OF THE CONCERN Wliat Tliey Say of the Situation—Herrlck's Conservative Statement. Henry A. Everett and E. W. Moore refused to be interviewed concerning their affairs. The trustees who will have charge of the Everett-Moore affairs are: Edwin G. Tillotson, secretary and treasurer Cleveland Trust company; Harrison E. Newcomb, vice president Savings and Trust company; Myron T. Herrlck, president Society for Savings; .1. J. Sullivan, president Central National bank; Calvary Morris, president Western. Reserve Trust company; Kaufman Hayes, vice president Euclid Avenue National bank, and William G. Mather, president American Trust company. These risen, all w^ell-knowii bankers, have issued a statement in which they say that in spite of the fact that the syndicate owns several million dollars in property more than it owes in money, the tightness In the money market made it impossible for It to meet its oibligations without temporary assistance. Some of the syndicate members made an investigation and discovered in their opinion that the equities owned by the company w'ere far In excess of Its liabilities and that the situation was not at all serious, provided proper jnanagenient was adopted. So it w^as proposed to turn the business over to the committee which now has charge. The committee organized by electing H. R. Newcomb as chairman and E. C. C. Tillotson secretary. At the conclusion of the committee statement is a separate one signed by Myron T. Herrlck. which says: "Personally I have had no connection with and no knowledge of tlie operations of tlie Everett-Moore syndicate. Although I am named as one of the members of the committee for the reorganization of their affairs I have now no actual knowledge of their condition, except as informed by another committee, » * » which has spent more than a week in making an investigation. While I have taken no part in this investigation the bankers who conducted It are among our safe and conservative men, and whose report should inspire confidence. The entire affairs of the syndicate are now undergoing a thorough investigation .with the assistance of chartered accountants, and all persons concerned should, in my judgment, feel assured that the Interests of all classes of creditors will be conserved by competent business management at the hands of the committee chosen." Openingr of Blgr Utlgation. Toledo, O., Jan. 3.—The Everett-Moore syndicate, through the Maumee Valley Electric road, is the plaintiiF in three of. the biggest suits ever bi-ought in the local courts, in'which it seeks injunction to restrain execution on three cognovit Judgments.

The rule in such cases is quite clear and well establl.sliod in precedents—namely, that the ambassador present longest in continuous service at the capital shall head the line.
