“ riage of her daughter. “. 

“Well, isn’t she going to marry a Protestant, a

“Yes.” | } .

The mother was considerably crestfallen. Then, 
“But, your grace, you can at least attend the 
wedding. Oh, please do that and*be sure you 
-pome in all your clothes. I mean,” she added, 

blushing,-“‘in all your vestments and things.” 
_ But the Archbishop was not shocked. Instead

S not a lover of “John Smith” checks or

that a friend from Chicago dropped in the Kin-

esked the loan of $100. 

‘The Senator knew him wel!, knew him to be a 
. man who made plenty of money, and, moreover, 
was fond of him personally. He found the $100 
pnd gave it to the visiting Chicagoan. 

“Here, wait a minute,” exclaimed the borrower, 
as the Senator passed over the roll; “I'll give

. “Don’t want your note,” was the reply. 

“Why not?” asked the Chicagoan.

AMES CAMPBELL, though genial when at so- 
J cial gatherings, is a sphinx when in his 
brokerage office. Few persons have ever 
‘wheedled him into giving them a tip. 
A young woman whose father. is a close friend 
of the silent broker entered Mr. Campbell's office 
the other day. Warmed by the little wizard’s 
kindly smile she took a ehair and started a 14- 
feet-through-the-valley flood of. conversation like 
this: Ss e 
f “I have some money that I would like to in- 
' Vest and I have come to ask you, Mr. Campbell, 
‘what would you do? In stock, for instance; 
would you buy them or sell them?” 
. Mr. Campbell swung about in his swivel chair 
and said:

*“(Note.—The St. Louis Board of Education is con- 
sidering a plan to introduce a course in automo- 
bile driving at the Sumner High School, the idea 
being to prepare young Negroes for service 
in this growing field. The Manual Training 
School of Washington University is also preparing 
for a chauffeur training department.) 

RE you dodging them? Patience. In a lit- 

A tle while they will be getting you. Zip! 

and off with a leg. WFMfonk-honk! and 

pop go your coattails. Whizz-zizz! and zing 
with your head. 

All a simple twist of the wrist—a mere matter 
of training. The chauffeurs that hit people are 
amateurs. , 

The Foot of the Class for them. 
Amateurs’ Days Numbered. 
The chaps that miss street cars and can’t 
climb the hook-and-ladder wagon are only a 
matter of a few more months. The trained chauf- 
feur is coming, with his diploma in his cap, his 
wrist muscles developed, an eye like an eagle and 
2 fine billiard shot on the boulevard. 
Jack be limber! Jack be quick! 
But not for long. 
Jack jump over the candlestick! 
But not for long. 

Jack get off of the boulevard, 

Jack jump into the nearest yard, 

Jack come down where the lighting’s hard, 

But not for long. 
The course in “chauffing”’ will be very simple. 
The Board of Education will import a French 
road race:. These fellows are violent, but they 
know how to drive an automobile. How they 
make the time without clogging the running parts 
with peasants is a poser, but they can do it. It 
is a French knack. 
“Chauffing” an Instinct. 

The teacher will first show the pupils how to 
put on the goggles so they can’t see anything. 

“Chauffing’. is an instinct. A real chauffeur feels 

his way. 



TEN 8 COSTS © ae 




Fo’ Yo’ TER. 


Instinct is much quicker than the eye. 
{t will dodge a Vegetable wagon that the eye 
would not observe until the cornea was obfus- 
cated with beet juice. 

Having shown the Class how to put on its 
specs, the teacher will expound the Ten Com- 
mandments of chauffing, viz: 

1. Thou shalt have no other:automobile before 

2. Thou shalt hit the high places of the earth, 
and avoid the depressions thereof. 

3. Thou shalt pace the police auto, to lose it. 

4. Remember the repair shop, to Feep it busy. 

>. Seven-days shalt thou ride the master, and 
seven nights shalt thou ride thy friends. 

6. Dishonor the speed law, and keep it looking 
like 30c. 

7. Thou shalt kill. 

8. Go after the pedestrian, 

9. Thou shalt startle thy neighbor’s ass, and 
make it run eight miies. 

10. Thou shalt bear false witness against the 
farmer, and swear it was he that ran into you.

When the Class has mastered these, the teach- 
er will take the school automobile apart, and 

to keep him hump- 

they are chauffeurs.

offer a scholarship at Tuskegee College to any- 
one who will put it together again. 

Following which, pupils will be asked = to 
ciawl under their desks and lie flat on their 
backs. : 

This exercise will consume an hour, the idea 
being to get used to it. 

At this juncture the Gabriel horn will blow for 


lunch, and the Class will crowd into the school 
car and let the teacher take them downtown. 

This will be the great excitement of the day. 

After pursuing pedestrians and vehicles for a 
while, the teacher will hit a street car amidships. 
and show the Class how to break a collar bone. 

The lunch will be the kind they will get when 
That is, the tegeher will go 
in and eat, leaving the pupils to sit outside in 
the machine, hoping a banana cart or a weiner- 
wurst runabout will com? past. 

In the afternoon the Class will practice road 
breathing. The instructor will have a hand bel- 
lows filled with sand and dust. He will pass 
along the line, blowing this in the face of each 
pupil. until the subject bleeds at the ears. 

The balance of the day will be devoted to im- 
provising. _Improvising is making automobile 
parts of iron junk, barbed wire, rope, old farm 

harness and nails, 

On Wednesday afternoon the Class will do tire 
patching. Merit cards will be issued to the stu- 
dent doing the neatest job in inlaid work. In- 
laid work is: setting a piece of the sole of a rubber 
boot into a tir® in such a way that when the 
plug blows out it will kill a bystander and not 
injure anyone in the car. 

After six months, if the pupils are still deter- 
mined upon it, the Board of Education will issue 
diplomas and secure for graduates a contract to 
kill pedestrians for the medical colleges on shares.

Look into the future, if you have the courage, 
and you will see an opera war ahead which will 
make our late vaudeville war look like a corner 
store pinocble game. 

It will start at the Garrick tomorrow night, and 
the Italian Grand Opera Company will have a 
week to prepare for the *ontest with the San 
Carlo people, who will start up on Grand avenue 
next week. Both Mr. Tate and Mr. Walker know 
lots of reasons why they will fare hetter than the 
Milan and Sheehan companies did. 


And however they fare, or however soon they 
shake the spaghetti of St. Louis from their forks, 
there are Conried and Hammerstein, who will 
hear before long how musical we have grown, 

‘and if things get a bit dull on Broadway, who 

knows but we may get a chance to spend $5 each 
in contracting Tetrazzinitis? 

To which can be added, with as much certain- 
ty as attends such far-off events, that the Milan 

company is coming back in April. | 
Lest we get all choked up with the “ah, mi” 

and “angui, d’lnferno” airs of Donizetti and Verdi. «1

You guessed right. See vage oompty-oom for fur- 

ther particuiars. 

And tomorrow night, if you possess a dress 
suit and 21 friend who is good for two tickets, 
you can hear Alfred G. Rebyn’s Amphion Club 
sing Alfred G. Hobyn’s ‘atest song. You might 

as well learn it now as to come trailing along 

after it is on every boarding house piano. Also 
the Amphs will sing “Du Bist (pronounced beast) 
Wie Eine Blume,” in the language Heine wrote 
it in. and the Pilgrims’ Chor.s in any language 
that seems most likeir to make a hit, and Mme. 

‘Maconda, coloratura soprano will sing some of 

the a, b, c, d series of selections that work so 
satisfactorily as automatic -ncores. — 

But if music has a monopoly on Society, Society 
has no monopoly on music. The man with a 
nickel can get it changed at the pennyodeon and 
drown hi: troubles in a sea of melody. He can 
hear anything, from Gounod's arias and the Nut- 

 eracker Suite to “He Lost Her ’Canse He Couldn't 

Sing ‘Love Me, and De World Am Mine.’”

picture show ticket, he gets his music

The evil habit of delay is bad enough when it 

springs only from negligence. When it has its 
root in design it is intolerable. 

Recently the Post-Dispatch has shown the ef- 
fects of this policy in various directions. The 
free. bridge is held up. Paving contracts are held 
up. The insane asylum is held up. The public 
library is held up. Everywhere there are in- 
terests powerful enough to accomplish in secret 
and by indication what they cannot hope to gain 
in the open. : 

Another example of this is to be found in the 
case of the public utilities law passed at the re- 
cent session of the Legislature. Under that act 
municipalities are empowered to regulate and fix 
the charges of public service corporations. There 
appeared to’be a profound public interest in the 
measure, but no steps have yet been taken under 
it. | : 

Similar laws adopted in other states at about 
the same time are now visibly in effect. Power- 
ful commissions established under them are at 
work and already the people are in the enjoy- 
ment of many reforms which they have’ insti- 
tuted. In St. Louis even the-perfunctory appoint- 
ment of a commission to investigate and report 
to the Municipal. Assembly has not yet been had. 

The Fabian policy in war was long ago adopted 
also in the law. We have it here fully fledged in 
government. When Fabius did not venture to 
give battle he retreated and feinted and &y such 
methods exhausted the enemy. When a litigant 
has nothing’ else to hope for he fights for delay. 
When selfish interests are defeated in the open 
they contrive - by hidden methods and by pro- 
crastinatidn to defer action -gainst them. 

It is absolutely essential to the proper use of 
the power conferred upon the municipality by 
the late legislature that there should be an 
inquiry as to the facts. The assembly must be 
informed. It must know in detail all about con- 
ditions not only in St. Louis, but in other cities 
as well. It cannot hope to exercise authority 
either wisely or successfully without knowledge. 

Yet various bills providing for so simple an act 
as the appointment of a commission to ascertain 
fucts and make recommendations have been rest- 
ing in committee room pigeon holes at the City 
Hall ever since last August. Nothing is doing 
and there are no signs that anything will be do- 
ing for a long time to come. If a valuable pri- 
vate right or privilege were involved there would 
be a different story to tell. Public rights and in- 

terests being concerned, dust and mildew gather 

upon the papers inthe case. 

As has been remarked in this place on other 
occasions, these things are not, the result of ac- 
cident. There are people who profit by no-gov- 
ernment. There are people having the strongest 
possible reasons for favoring delay. Delay some- 
times leads to forgetfulness aad neglect. There 
are people who were not able to defeat the utili- 
ties measure in the Legislature who may think 
they can smother it to death in the Municipal 
Assembly. Time often works marvels in the case 

‘of menaced wrongs, for new objects of attack 

may present themse!ves and thus the public mind 
may be diverted. 

The people of St. Louis have everything to gain 
and nothing to lose by strangling Fabius before 
Fabius strangles them. . 


If the trustees’ of our universities could be 
suddenly endowed with common sense and if as a 
result of that blessing they were forthwith to 
seize every callow communistic “professor” at- 
tached to their faculties and pitch him into the 
street there would be a good many vacancies, 
byt the cause of education would not suffer if 
they continued ‘forever. 

-The University of Missouri now harbors 4 
genius.who announces as a new.and benignant 
discovery communistic ideas which are several 
centuries older than the Christian era and which 

rave never been put into force on any scale, 

large or small, without complete and humiliating 
failure. - 

Quack Utopias have existed in rea: life as well 
as in books, and, whether conducted by persons

Brook Farm was perhaps the best equipped com-

was only one practical person in the member-

it was not long before the one practical man had

Lord Erskine little recked what the conse- | 

e¢ slayer of a royal George he stuck a successful 
definition of insanity into the law and opened the 
way to generations of imitators. are 

While they have not approached the use of it 
made by the supreme master of Anglo-Saxon ad- 
vocates, they have been shrewd enough to follow 
without change a definition so perfect in plausi- 
bility; and it is Erskine’s plea nearly verbatim 
that remains imbedded in the law, both statute 
and judicial, of English-speaking countries. 

The arch-advocate himself who saved the man 
that shot at a King in a box at the end ite 
have saved, indeed, the slayers of Presidents; 
and his wording of the excuse repeated by iess 
able tongues has made*deep mischief with the 
law that protects human life. 

It is to Erskine largely that weak. men and 
men in rage owe their license and consequent 
encouragement to avenge their own redl and 
fancied wrongs. And to the influence of his so- 
called “humanitarian” theory—which being hard 
and fast must of necessity fail of discrimination 
—will partly be charged the weakness of the law 
which is offered as the excuse of lawlessness, of 
mobs and lynchers; of the unwritten law. 

A toning up of the law’s strength cannot be had 
without making some drastic corollaries to the 
Erskine principle. So. long as proved insanity 
may not only save a homicide from death but 
open the way to possible eventual freedom the 
law lacks forbidding restraint. 

When life incarceration is offered as the certain 
alternative, when a homicide proved insane’ by 
his own lawyers and accounted insané by a jury 
of his peers is thereby fixed in the status of a. 
dangerous maniac and given immediately and 
irrevocably into the State’s keeping for the pro- 
tection: of society, a considerable advancé in 
government will be recorded without violation 
of. any humanitarian principle. Justice will be 
strengthened and juries will be freer to dispense 
it. Homicides for many reasons would be -re- 
duced in number. 

In a word, when a man is excused as insane 


oe WAS 

by a jury his fate for all time should be fixed 

which to operate: When careful men cannot teil 
the exact truth to save their lives we may ap- 
preciate the .vame of mind in which the psalm- 
ist found himself when he remarked: ‘I said in 
my haste that all 'men are liars.” 

ipso facto, requiring nothing further. ‘Escaping 
the gallows, the subject should be legally dead. 
If there is seeming harshness in presenting the 
alternative of. an incurable status and life in- 
carceration to the homicide whc disclaims re- 
sponsibility, assuredly it is more than balanced 
by the consideration of general welfare. 

Justice will not recede from Erskine’s plea, but 
many jurists will confess that its effects and in- 
fluen¢e have been more harmful than beneficial. 
The necessity for a check upon its baleful results 
and a balance for its operation must commend 
itself to thoughtful lawyers and commissions en- 
gaged in recommending revision of laws.

Most of the thousands of fatalities and injuries 
resulting from the operation of American. rail- 
The’ record for 
years has been vo appalling as to attract world- 
wide discussion 

Many safety appliances are in use, but their 
adoption has not been either general or com- 
plete. There are Federal laws on the subject 
which have been ‘enforced very feebly or wholly 

While all of these devices cost, money, it. is 

probable that every railroad in the land might 
have been fully equipped with them if one- 
tenth of the money raised on watered railroad 
securities by exploiters of the Harriman type had 
been used for that purpose. 
__- Many railroads are poor, either as a result of 
overcapitalization,, mismanagement or déficient 
traffic, but not one of them need be without 
these things if its managers were persuaded 
either by humanity or fear of the law that it 
was desirable thus to safeguard life and limb. 

Considerably more than ¢ miilion of the best 
men in America ate employed in railway trans- 
portation. It is a shameful fact that each year 
the casualties among them equal those of a 
great battle. Gettysburg, Chattanooga, Chicka- 
mauga, Chancellorsville and the Wilderness repre- 
sent fearful voluntary sacrifices for ‘moral and 
patriotic ideas. The tragedies or the rail stand 
for nothing but indifference and greed. 

Two Federal courts in Chicago have recently 
convicted various railway compantes of violating 
the laws on this subject. Nothing less than a 
general movement by such tribunals from coast 
to coast will meet the demands of the situation.

Gov. Hughes may never have held a responsible 
newspaper position, but in &n address to the 
Editorial Association of his State the other day 
he showed that he was well informed as to one 
of the greatest perplexities of journalism. 

“The most difficult thing,” he Said, “is to see 
a thing and then tell what you see. For that 
reason the newspaper mar has the tcughest of 
all jobs. Telling the truth is a most difficult 
operation one it is seldom performed with com- 
plete success.’ 

Speaking generally, the trouble is that no two 
men ever see anything just alike. Granting that 
they are equally honest and equally free from a 
possible motiye to indulge in misrepresentation, 
we have to take into account differences in ca- 
pacity as well as in temperament. 

One man will see much more than another. 
He has the perceptive faculty well developed. 
One man has imagination while another man has 
none. The imaginative man will not deliberately 
falsify, but there will be embellishments in his 
narrative which some people will pronounce 
baseless. A highly emQtional and romantic per- 
son will witness an episode and describe it in a 
fashion that will appear to be fictitious, while a 
stolid man will see only the obvious and miss the 
most interesting phases of the occurrence.

The clarinettist of the Millstadt (Ill.) band, 
being sued for breach, of promise, excuses his 
failure t@#marry the fair plaintiff on the ground 
that “I had to choose between her and music, 
which I have decided to make my profession, 
though I have been until now only a farmer.” 
And he winds up with the withering charge: 
“She was lacking in musical temperament.” 

Since this is manifestly the most cruel and 
biighting accusation which a musician can make, 
and since the case becomes in effect the trial 
of the voung lady on that charge, it behooves 
just-minded persons before convicting her to 
inquire upon what ground the charge is based. 
In answer to this inquiry we discover the sole 
fect that she remonstrated against the noise he 
was in the habit of making twice a week at. 
rehearsals in the town hall upstairs over the 
grocery store. 

We gather that this lusty-lunged husbandman, 
fresh from the fields with his artistic enthusiasms. 
made himself heard above cornet and tuba, trom- 
bone, bassoon and eke bass drum, else she could 
not have singled him out to particularize her 
remonstrance, nor would he have resented it as 
a personality. We take it that this is the crux 
cf the case and we conceive hat a clarinet with 
a pair of deep ‘bucolic bellows behind it might 
emit some fairly terrific blasts, especially when 
manipulated by horny fingers inured to hay hook 
and husking peg. 

That these apoplectic and ear-splitting. blasts 
would inevitably develop a rift somewhere is 
certain. Something must give way under the 
compression and it is not surprising to find/a 
crack in the lute of love itself. But we are 
trable to find that a remonstrance against sheer 
volume and piercing ‘strength of tone implies a 
want of critical taste, of appreciation, or artistic 
temperament, or signifies an empty soullessness 
like unto an aching and perhaps echoing vold. 
The. fault, we think, lies rather with the de- 
fendant, who should have stvck to the less mili- 
tant jewsharp or learned to fiddle “Turkey in the 

In no event will the- charge of a want of

together with double or punitive damages and 


To the credit of a judge presiding in a Chicago

It may be that the learned gentlemen of the bar 
can present plausible reasons why witnesses 
should be subjected to verbal assaults worse than 
those which are inflicted upon prisoners at the

to do so. The only inference jis that they. pre-

The old-time Pops are dead and gone, 
We'll never see them more— 

The fellows with the wide hats on, 
And whiskers down before; 

The prairie grass grows where they lie, 
And the spry grasshopper hops—— 

And in their stead we have today 
The lusty Soda-Pops. 

The old-time Pops have had their sway, 
And they are laid to rest— 
The bearded patriarchs'and gray 
That flourished in the West; 
They made a lot of public men 
Do somersaults and flops— 
But they never were a power like 
The modern Soda-Pops. 

The old-time Pops could muster votes 
And make a great fanfare— 

The rustics with the hay and oats 

_ Protruding from their hair; 

They learned the game of politics 
Between the summer crops— 

But they never did raise thunder like 
The later Soda-Pops. 

The old-time Pops had bully lungs, 
And whooped it up with zest— 

The fellows with the Brigham Youngs 
The passing winds caressed; 

They chased a lot of enemies 
Into the tall tree-tops— 

But they never did get going like 
The present Soda-Pops.

Absence Due to Mother’s Death 
forced a Cancellation of 

1.—The Dowager Duchess of Man- 
chester’s absence in America, due to her mother’s 
death, forced a cancellation of a dinner to be fol- 
lowed by a concert with American singers, Which 
had been arranged for the King Thursday. 

The Duchess manages all entertainments for the 
King when he is at Biarritz, and no one else 80 
thoroughly understands the business, Her absence 
is a serious blow to him in view of his pas os 
visit to that resort. 

Messages Of condolence were sent the Duchess by 
the King, Queen and all members of the royal fam- 
ily, while the accumulation of telegrams and letters 
of sympathy sent to her housé in Grosvenor Square 
is enormous. 3

LONDON, Feb. 1.—The production of Comyn Carr's 
play, “Edwin Drood,”’ at His Majesty's Théater, was, 
of great interest throughout England, because the 
play had been presented the solution of the un- 
finished Dickens novel. 

The fault found by critics in their reviews of the 
play, in which Mr. Beerbohm Tree has the leading 
role, Was that the mystery was dispelled in the sec- 
ond act by permitting the audience to see Jasper in 
the opium den when he imagines he ts murdering 
Mr. Drood. 

From that point on the play becomes a mere pre- 
sentation of the Dickens character with the story 
left out. Jasper, in the continuation of the play, is 
hardly able to hold almost the entire interest. whieh 
he is expected to do. 


LONDON, Feb. 1. The latest papyri found in Egypt 
prove that Egyptian civilization attained a great 
height in earliest times. An invitation to dinner that 
has just been discovered is framed almost in the 
identical phrases used \in politest society today: 

“Heramon invites you to dine at the table of Lord 
Serapis, tomorrow, the 15th of the month. at. 9 

An invitation to a bridal dinner runs: 

“Herais invites you to dine with her at. the mar- 
riage of her children at her house tomorroy, the 
Sth, at 9 o'clock.” R 

One contains an ode eulogizing the frugal life and 
condemning overfeeding, which it says is due to the 
extravagance and excitement of the times.

Asks Law to 
and December 



PARIS, Feb. 1.—If legislators would heed the ad- 
vice of Dr. Jaques Bertillon, they would pass a law 
which would forbid the marriages between men and 
women of great difference in age. He bclieves that 
the marriage between a man of €0 and a woman of 
less than 30 ig.detrimental not only to those direct- 
ly involved, but also to the country as a whole. Dr. 
Bertillon says that men of © seldom beget children 
and in some cases, if not in the most, where they do 
become fathers, it is worse for the community. 

France, says Dr. Bertillon, needs sensible love 
matches which shall result in good, heaithy, happy 
children. The country, according to Nim, and he 
quotes statistics, is depopulating fast and this makes 
it more necessary that the children which are born 
shall be healthy ones. Says Dr. Bertillon: 

“Whenever I read an announcement which tells me 
that ‘M, N., aged 60, is going to marry Mlle. X.., 
aged 25,’ I become sad. I pity the girt, for I know 
she will either never be a mother, or if she will be 
one she will have ‘unhealthy children. I pity France 
because money has become a factor in matrimony. 
Young women sell themselves, for this is what such 
a@ marriage: means, to old, decrepit bachelors who 
were too wicked or too selfish to marry when they 
were young. Something should be done to prevent 
such dangerous and disgusting practices. Between 
five and ten years’ difference in ages of marriage 
candidates is enough. Anything above it means for 
divorcee, race Suicide and adultery,”

LONDON, Feb. 1.—The kimono sleeve, which was 
threatened with extinction, has come ‘ack into fem- 
inine favor in a new guise. Its ample proportions are 
now fitted with a pocket to hold the wearer's toy 

“These dogs’ pockets are, of course, only suitable 
for one of the miniature Yorkshire or black-an-tan 
terriers a West Enfé dressmaker says, “and as 
these fragile little creatures are hardly any weight 
they do not inconvenience their owners. 

“This new kKimona_ sleeve was first created in 
America, but several society women in this country 
have adopted it for their walking, driving or motor- 
ing coats. 

“It is certainly a humane fashion, as far as the 
dog .is concerned, for these toy creatures are very 
susceptible to cold. The sleeve pockets are made 
in velvet and fur coats, and are lined with flanne! 
or a thin layer of wadding. 

“Toy dog pockets in ‘granny’ muffs are also to 
be geen, the fluffy head of the terrier peeping out 
presenting a very comical spectacle."

LONDON, Feb. 1}—Princess Hatzfeldt proved her-

Countess Arthur Fabbricotti, who has just married 
Baron Charles Aliotto, counselor to the Italian Em.

LONDON, Feb. 1.—Father Bernard Vaughan is @ 
past master in the art of presenting unpalatable 
truths in a coating of picturesque metaphor. His, 
latest is: “We are living in an age when too many 
people want to be like a moter car, and to run 
through life at top speed—a: thing which cannot be 
done without a breakdown or a collision, or both,”’

Cardinal remarked that be preached like an Ltalian. 

“Yes,” said the Pope, ‘‘but he is an Italian. He 
was born on Vesuvius; and we only sent him to 
England to cool!” 

When Father Vaughan is not denouncing society 
for its sins at bis fashionable church on Farm street, 
he is working hard among the poorest of the poor in 
the slums of the East End. Down by the docks he 
spends the winter in an- humble lodging, preaching 
cleanliness, manliness and sobriety ‘n streets which 
even the police will only visit in pairs.

Gramophone Records Placed 
Vacuum Containers to Iilus- 
trate Progress. 

PARIS, Feb. 1.--Twenty-four pramophone records 
by famous living musical artists were solemnly e¢n- 
tombed in the crypt of the Paris Opera House. 

The records were Very carefully packed in a cop- 
per casket, from -which the alr was exhausted. The 
casket was soldered, and placed in another metal 
box, from which the air was also pumped out. The 
box was then -inclosed in a special receptacle in the 
wall of the crypt with an insoription requesting 
that it remain intact for 100 years. 

A parchment scroll giving a list of the records and 
full instructions for their use when the box is at 
length opened was deposited in the archives of the 

A modern gramophone was placed in another her- 
metically sealed box, also containing full instrue- 
tions for the benefit of the men who are expected 
to use it in the year 2007. 

The entombed records include operatic arias sung. 
by Tamaguo, Caruso, Plancon, Mme. Patti, Mme, 
Melba, and Mme. Calve, violin solos by Kubelik, and 
choruses by singers of the Scala Theater at Milan. 

M. Malherbe, the conservator of the museum of 
the Opera, explained that the idea governing the 
proceedings was to put on record for future genera- 
tions one of the aspects of the music of the twen- 
tieth century, what was sung and how the best sing- 
ers sang it. 

It was also intended to show the progress in the 
art of registering sound by these examples of the 
highest perfection yet attained to be compared per- 
haps a hundred years hence with the records of 

that day. 


ROME, Feb. 1.—Gabriele D’Annunzio, the erratic 
Italian poet and dramatist, has just completed a new 
play which he dedicated to “The Lord of the Uni- 
verse.’’ The dedication is formulated in a veritable 
church bymn which ends with “Amen.” 

The play is called “La Nave’’ (The Ship). It deals 
with the criminal classes of Venice in olden days. 
Some of the worst crimes that ever happened in the 
world are described. Scores of girls are to be shot 
on the stage if the play is presented. Wild beasts 
are supposed to be brought on the ctage and human 
beings, nude, or almost so, are to be thrown to these 

Whether the play will have the same reception 
which was given to his last dramatic compositions is 
not certain. The last play he wrote was so badly re- 
ceived on its first night that it was never presented 

One dramatic critic says of “La Nave’: 

“Perhaps Sig. D’Annunzio dedicated it to the Lord 
in order to gain favor for the play. Whatever his 
intentions might be, it is best to ‘write » good play 
with no dedication than a bad play with a dedication 
of such importance.” 


MILAN, Feb. 1—All the artists in Venice, besides 
the best-known aud most influential people in society, 
are up in arms for the defense of Venice’s moonlight. 
It must be explained that this esthetic campaign is 
the result of a decision by the Venetial municipality 
to light.the Grand Canal, St. Marks Basin, and other 
canals by incandescent gas burners. 

It is not denied that the present system of lighting 
is scanty and inefficient, yet the artists ang their 
supporters are vigorously condemning the suggested 
improvement. Incandescent gaslight, they say, gives 
a blending of crude light which would utterly destroy 
the beautiful colors for which Venice by moonlight 
enjoys world-wide fame, 

Already a petition hag been forwarded to the mu- 
nicipal authorities asking them to rescind their order. 
Among the signatories are artists, poets and writers, 
including several English perean who have settled. 
in. Venice.

Increasing interest is manifest in the 
subject of charity since the north winds 
h: e howled and the flakes of snow have 
evidenced stern winter in his character 
of relentless fury. 

While the cold penetrates every nook 
and crevice, and even presumes to in- 
trude to‘the innermost protected locali- 
tles, society utilizes many devices te 
outwit this grim interloper of cold and 
with thoughtfulness born of the spirit 
of cultivated charity, renewed efforts 
are being made to neutralize the suf- 
fering which the cold brings to the poor. 

For many years St. Louis has not 

faced the present néed of work for the 
unfortunate poor ag the number of 
entertainments for the benefit of charity 
has increased accordingly. 
_ A practical movement most worthy of 
the season is prevailing among the vast 
number of members of society. Mothers 
of children have joined the army of re- 
lief by searching warm clothing out of 
their attics and distributing to the shiv- 
ering, hovering unfortunates who would 
otherwise suffer intensely with scanty 
garments scarcely protecting their thin 
little bodies from the cold. 

“As my children romp in the comfort- 
able warmth of' their nursery, protected 
by. warm, soft garments, I think of the 
other children of mothers who love them 
as I do mine, but who cannot supply 
the warm nursery and warm clothing. 
This thought prompted me to go to my 
attic of half-worn and outgrown gar- 
ments and to distribute them where they 

lwould serve the good purpose of com- 

fort for the needy.” This was the philo- 
sophical reasoning of a society woman, 
the mother of children, whose interest 
in society only inereases her desire to 

extend beneficence.. 
Saturday evening, for the benefit of 
charity, “‘The. Union Station” furnished 
amusement for an appreciative audience 
of society people at the Odeon. The 
Baptist Orphans’ Home was the bene- 
Among those who took part were 
Mmes W. A. McCandless, C. E. Udell, 
Flora Barrow, Nora Hughes Morse, Al- 
bert Chappell, Wallace D. Simmons, 
Charles S. McKinney, F. A. Linneman,

F. .Burgess, Ethel Riddle, Margaret Mc- 
Candless, Caroline Fowler, Elizabeth

Frauenthal was in charge of the ticket

traying a migration from one post to

W. McLeod, J. D. Dalton, E. E. Magill, 
Charles Cox, Warren Bailey, Howard 
Bailey and Clinton E. Udell took active 
part in the management. Many actors 
wore contumes to represent various na- 
tions of the earth. 

Hours of tiresome rehearsals have 
engaged Misses Emma Drew, Minnie 
Blair, Louise Nugent, Francis Jones,

the reformed ‘synagogues of London, 
celebrated his ninety-seventh birthday 
last month. In speaking of his career, 
the London Jewish World says: “‘As far 1842 he and his. congregation 
were condemned by the ecclesiastical au- 
thoritles of that time, and they had to 
fight a long and weary battle for recog- 
inition. Prof. Marks is a scholar, a pow- 
erful preacher and has wielded great in- 
fluence in the Anglo-Jewish community.”’

Police Tow Away Machines 
That Are Left Sanding 
on Streets. 


NEW YORK, Feb. 1.—There is a new 
terror for those who own automobiles. 
The Street Cleaning Department has 
started a pound for them, and if an 
owner leaves his car outside unattended 
while he goes in to ..- a man about a 
dog it may be necessary to go down the 
next morning and redeem the machine. 

The idea is that automobiles ought 
not: to be left unattended in the street, 
because they get in the way, for one 
thing, and becauSe they hurt the pave- 
ments with the drip of gasoline. Inci- 
dentally, there is a city ordinance which 
such neglect violates. 

The first raid was an awe-inspiring 
The order of march was a 
In the buggy was 

buggy and a truck. 

.| District superintendent Denice, who led 

the raid. In the truck were the chauf- 
feur, a policeman, some Street Cleaning 
Department foremen and one small boy, 
who hung on behind. 

Two Have Warning. 

The first halt was in Broadway, about 
Fiftieth street. but it was a false alarm, 
because the owner of a derelict car, 
that was seen there had not had a spe- 
cial warning, and,.the department was 
merciful in opening. the campaign. The 
party swept along after this, and fin- 
ally turned up Seventh avenue from 
Long Acre square. At Forty-ninth 
street there was a wild -cil fypm a 
smai] boy scout, and a car whose own- 
er, the Automobile Schools of America, 
had had warning. wes spied. 

So the bugle blew to halt the detach- 
ment, and the truck backed down to the 
front of the car. -ffeur made 
fast to the truck and leaped to the 
steering wheel. Just then the man who 
owned the car appeared and seemed to 
be slightly annoyed. He wanted a re- 
ceipt for the car and he wanted to 
know @ lot of things, but he’ got lit- 
tle consolation. 

May Cost Him $20. 

Then the horn was tooted, the bu~vy 
led off, and the truck began to tow 
the: car to the encumbrance yard, in 
West Fifty-sixth street, with a large 
crowd in attendance. The owner will 
be able te line up with the East Side

When Husband Died She Erected Tomb With 
Own Hands, Then Fell in Love With — 
Italian Statesman. 

eo > 

ROME, Feb. 1.—Sig. Achille Fazzari, 
one of the best-known followers of Gui- 

seppe Garibaldi, has related the romance 
of the English couple named Collins, 
who were, with taribaidi, the only in- 
habitants of the island of Caprera. On, 
that solitary rock the husband an wife 
lived a life full of romaftic detail, The 

couple spent 40 years in Caprera. 

They had « rustic cottage close to the 
seashore, but lived almost entirely in a 
small boat. They procured food for 
themselves by hunting and fishing. The 
cottage was on the eastern side of the 
island. When Mr. Collins went to the 
neighboring island of La Magdalena to 
make a few purchases or collect any let- 
ters, which at that time arrived every 
15-days, his wife remained on board the 
hoat with her face hidden by a thick 
vell, thus causing many people to be- 
lieve in the legend which grew up that 
her beauty had been marred by scars 
produced by burning. Eveh Garibaldi, 
although he often saw the husband, had 
never been able to get a glimpse of the 
face of the wife. So great was the af- 
fection of the latter ror her ,.husband 
that when he died she constructed with 
her own hands a tomb. 

After her husband’s death, however, 
the woman changed her mode of living, 
and everybody could see her face, which 
was still remarkably beautiful. She had, 
too, a spendid figure, and with the grace 
of her person she united a varied and 
brilliant culture. As a widow she fell 
in love w'th Garibaldi. 

‘TI have seen,” said Achille Fazzari, 
“tye numerous letters which<«she wrote 
to the hero. They date from 1860, and 
continue for a few years following. But 
of the love of Mrs. Collins for Garibaldi 
not much more is known.’ 

Sig. Fazzari thus vaguely hinted at 
another romance in the life of Garibaldi 
during his stay on the island of Ca- 
prera, but he resolutely declined to give 
any ot shir details, saying: ‘“‘Let us 

leave this story-in its mystery. * * * I} 

do not know why I have raised 4 corner 
of the veil.” 


Missouri Homesteader Perisistent in 
Getting Things Backward 

for 12 ‘Years. 

SPRINGFIELD, Mo., Feb. 1.—Bealy 
Hicks, the Camden County man who 
lived four years on the wrong home- 
stead and did not know it, has at last 
been heard from, but still his troubles 
have not ended. He learned that he 
was on a homestead 12 miles south of 
the one he had entered and walked 
nearly all the way to Springfield to file 
an amended entry. 

After applying at the cal land office 
and securing the necessary blanks he 
left, saying Me would have his papers 
prepared by an attorney and file them 
immediately. That was the last heard 
of Bealy for some time. A letter was 
received from him, in which he in- 
closed his papers, he having first sent 
them, through ignorance, to the General 
Land Office at Washington. 

The papers will have to be sent back 
to Hicks, however, for in his affidavit 
he swore before a notary public, an] 
such an affidavit is not recognized by 
the land office. It must be sworn to be- 
fore a Federal Commissioner, Clerk of 
the County or Circuit Court, or the 
land office officials. 

Sisters Die of Grief. 

WASHINGTON, Pa., Feb. 1.—Mrs. 
Matilda Coventry Searight, aged 8&2, and 
Miss Mary Jane Coventry, aged 80, have 
died, presumably of grief. A few ‘weeks 
ago their brother, John Stewart Co-

lived for many years, died, and the el-

_ “If You Do You Will Lose 
His. Friendship,” He 
. Declares. 


Young Millionaire Tells His 
Class to Be Cautious 
in Charity. 

“Never loan money to a friend; if 
you do you lose his friendship. If 
you know you will get it back and 
have to loan it, take his note and 
charge him interest.""—John D. 
Rockefeller Jr.. 

NEW YORK, Feb. 1.—John D. Rocke. 
feNer Jr. gave the members of his Bible 
class what he considered good advice on 
- money matters. It was the young mil- 
Wonaire’s first appearance before the 
Class for some months. He looked 

better health than usual. 

“I understand you have been discuss- 
ing the subject qf riches for some 
weeks,” he began, “and I feel that I 
should add my opinion. It is our duty 
® be as helpful to our fellow-men as is 
possible, but it is also our duty to ex- 
ercise discretion and common sense in 
the iigthods we follow. A thoughtless 
man may do more harm in giving away 

money than he has any idea of, and 

then the beneficial effect is lost. It is 
not always money that the needy want. 

It is another er of help and .sym- 

“It Is the litem of many people to | 
follow the words of the Scripture liter- 
ally, and I want to-emphasize the fact 
that you cannot do that. It is not in- 
tended that you should take the teach- 
ings of Christ in a literal sense. For 
instance, in Matthew you will find the 
‘words: ‘Gice to him who asks.’ It 
Would be next to impossible to give to 
every ‘one who asks you. Then, again, 

‘you find the story of the rich young 
ruler, whoin Christ told to se]l all that 

he had, and give to the poor.” 

Can’t Take Scripture Literally. 

“A gentleman who addressed vou a 
Short time ago, informed you that for 
every sale there must 'be a buyer. If 
every rich man sold all he had, where 
wuld be the buyers? 

i "f do not see how it would be possible 
_. t@ take Christ's words in a literal sense 
and apply them to our everyday lives. 

The yconditions were different in Pales- 
tine. and Christ never intended that 
hig teachings should be literally inter- 
preted in all the ages to come. He 
meant the spirit—not the words. 

“The poor then were different. from 
the poor of today. By the poor he re- 
ferred to the poor in spirit, not. those 
in actual need of food and lodging. To 
give to everyone that asks would mean 
to create an army of beggars—people 
whose self-respect would be crushed and 
who would prefer to ask for what they 
wanted rather than to work for it. Heip 
your fellow-man all you can—help him 
' to help himself, and he will bless you 
wr it. 

“There is another matter I want to 
talk to you about, and that fs the loan- 
ing of money. We all know that occa- 
sions arisé—a crisis in a man’s life

Retirement After 40 




Revisionists Wilt Not Follow 
the Doctrines of 


BERLIN, Feb. L—The continued ill 
health of Herr Bebel, the Socialist lead- 
er, points to his retirement from active 
political life at no late day. He has 
postponed ‘indefinitely his 
journey to America and has changed 
his apartment to the ground floor of 
his hotel in order to avoid walking up- 

Bebel informs the New York World 
and Post-Iispatch correspondent that

COLUMBUS, Ind., Feb. 1.—The Ladies’ 
Aid Society of the Central Christian 
Churéh of this city has adopted a novel 
method of raising money for the church. 

Each woman was requested, at a re- 
cent meeting, to._bring a yard of muslin. 
When the strips of goods were brought 

the women were instructed to mark 
off spaces on the strips and sew across 
the marks, thus making pockets in the 
strips. It was found that # pockets 
could thus be made. 

The women then took their: strips 
home, and fit is now their duty to obtain 
a plece ef money to place in each pocke: 
of the strip. A penny will do, but a $l) 
gold piece would be just as accept- 
able. By the measurement of the strips 
the women-declare that 40 pennies make 
a yard, instead of 36 _inches, as -s 
usually the case. The money will be 
placed in the pockets as rapidly as it 
can be earned, and later all the strips 
will be brought to the church and the 
money counted.

FORT DODGE, To., Feb. 1.—Robert 
Cochran, a pioneer citizen of Fort Dodge 
and a builder and contractor, who helped 
build Tobin College, has forsaken his 
home of almost a lifetime and gone to 
New Bathlehem, Pa., where he was mar- 
ried at the age of 75, to his sweetheart 
of 50 years ago, Lizzie Ritchey, who has 

remained single through all these years, 
faithful to her first love, is the bride. 
Because she dislikes to leave her life- 
time home, Mr. Cochran will live there. 

The bridegroom has been prominent 
in business here and lays claim to pio- 
neer citizenship in Fort Dodge. His 
age is now indicated by snowy hair and 
beard, but his heart is still young, al- 
though he left his boyhood home long 
ago and two years ago lost the com- 
panion of his best years, a woman whom 
he married in Illinois. After her death 
he was called to his boyhood home by 
th. death of a relative, and met again, 
loved the second time, proposed to and 
was accepted by Miss Ritchey. 

‘100,000 CARIBOU 

Extreme lg ets Forces Tremendous 
Herd Out of Arctic Circlé 
‘to Yukon Regions. 

SEATTLE, Wash., Feb. 1—A special 
to the Dispatch: from Seattle says: 

The largest herd of caribou ever seen 
in the wilds of Alaska is gow crossing 
the Yukon River, working its way south- 
ward to escape the frigid cold of the 
Arctic region. Prof. Joseph B. Terry}, 
geologist, and several men connected 
with the United States survey in Alas- 
ka, have just sent reports to the coast 
of the enigration of the animals. 

The herd has been moving for 100 days 
now and there seems to be no end to 
the string as far as the eye can see. It 
is estimated that over 100,000 caribou 
have crossed the stream and wended 
their way into the fastnesses of the 
mountains of the lower Yukon. térri-

AGUAS CALIENTES, Mexico, Feb. 1. 
_—~The many millions of dollars of wealth 
of Danie! Guggenheim of Philadelphia, 
who is’at the head of the Smelter Trust, 
are not standing in the way of his son, 

Harry Guggenheim, in learning full de-

business. Young Guggenheim is work-

1% . Wages as the Mexicans—one peso a day,

© money of the United S.ates. 

It ig stated that the young man took 
this position with his father’s consent 
and that he is to work his way up 
through the several departments of the 
smelter until he has acquired a practica: 
knowledge of the various departments. 
After finishing with the manual and 
mechanical sides of the business he 
will enter the office and learn how the 
books and records are kept. Before he 
is finished he will have learned how to 
sample and test ore and will be capable 
of /buying as well as treating the dif- 
ferent kinds of ore which come to the

to be able to succeed his father at the 
head of the enormous aggregation of 

_ capital when the time comes for the 
latter to retire.

Notwithstanding the great wealth of 
his father, young Guggenheim is shown 
no favors by the total officials and em- 

' ployes of the smelter here in the matter 
of employment. He is 19 years old and 
is strong and healthy. When he came 
or. down here in a private car and applied 
- to the manager of the local plant for a 
position he is said to have been told 
_ that the only opening was in the ore

Beautiful Tributes to Dead 


The St. Louis# Mirror of last week 
contained the following admirable trib- 
ute to the late Frank R. O'Neil, vice- 
president and assistant manager of the 
Post-Dispatch, from the pen oF William 
Marion Reedy: 

“No more beautiful spirit than Frank 
O’Neil’s ever lent its divinity to dust. 

There was—there is a man, for though 
he died last Monday morning, he is still 
and must ever be, to those who Knew 
him, not only a bright memory, but a 
fruitful inspirdtion to goodness and a 
sustenance in trial. How clean-minded 
he was! How full of the qualities of 
self-giving in the exercise of which he 
ever enriched himself the more. 

and his humor, the unpretentiousness of 
his mental and moral bigness, the kind- 
‘liness that’ softened even the sternness 
of his principles, when that sternness 
seemed like to vent itself upon the 
wrong-doer rather than on the wrong. 
Aside from his vast capacity for the 
sane enjoyment of life, he had but one 
passion, and that was that he should 
never work injustice. 

“He was a great reporter. He could 
not only get news, but he could write it 
as lucidly as Thucydides. His style was 
the man—simple, sincere, buoyant, alive 
to life in all. its phases, and he knew 
.no subject matter comparable . with 

“Touch him on any point of. conduct, 
and he rang clear and true. Idealist 
often to his own hurt, yet was he gifted 
with a common senge that penetrated and 
dissipated all sophistry and delusion. 
The last thing in the world he thought 
of was money. In business—and he was 
& superb business man—he was, as 
someone has said, always afraid he’d 
get the better of the other man in a 

“Frankness marked all his dealings. 
Me might soften his expression of 
opinion of you, but you always got: his 
real opinion. Trust him always, every- 
where, to damn treacherous flatteries 
without winking. Journalism he con- 
ceived as a high office, something pon- 
tifical yet pastoral, an exalted priest- 
hood of public .service. There was for 
him no compromise with right, yet he 
loved men, all men, even though he, 
might fight their purposes with all the 
strength of his character. 

“Companionable he was’ supremely, 

and glorious in argument, what time we 
talked up the dawn. His laughter, rich 
and ringing, none might resist, and his 
humor saved his intellectual and moral 
rigor from all suspicion of priggishness. 
For the frills and fritinancies of life he 
had a- fine, a copious, yet withal, an 
amused scorn, and pretension shriveled 
before his burning honesty. 
‘‘In writing he used the simplest 
words in their most natural sequence, 
and his lucidity was the utterance of 
clear thinking and seeing. He kept ever 
his youthful verve, and there was a 
freshness of sympathy in him that: was 
essential democracy. 

“As editor of the Republic, he 
fought the franchise schemes of the 
Republic's friends till they stood 
aghast at his indep@wdence. As gen- 
eral manager of the Pést-Dispatch, he 
was the friend of, but never syco- 
phant to organized labor. In politics 
no friendship of interest could seduce 
him from support of the right. 

“The man had a positive splendor 
of character, nor did he pride himself 
upon it in the least. Least self-con- 
scious, he was always for helping the 
world along. To the young man he 
Was a mentor grave and kind. Before 
all men he stood four-square to all 
the winds that blow. To the false 
andthe corrupt he was a terror not 
to be turned aside. This community 
owes him more than it can ever know. 
“Tro those of us who loved him, 
even as we admired him, he sweetens 
fortifies faith and enlivens 
hope in the promise that what is good 
shall not wholly die.’’

Last Year’s Sales of Hyomej 
the Guaranteed Cure for Ca- 
tarrh, Larger Than Ever. 

The merits of Hyomei (the treatment 
that cures catarrh without stomach 
dosing), its a regi and growth, 
are unique in the annals of medicine. 

So pronounced is the relief and cure 
following the use of this treatment 
that it has been publicly recommended 
by leading druggists and physicians in 
State and town in the 
eountry, with the result that last 
year’s sales were larger than ever. 

The fact that Hyomei is so simple 
and complete, and that it cures by 
breathing medicated air and not taking 
drugs into the stomach, no doubt has 
helped to create this widespread and 
rapidly woepe xs I army of friends. 

The way in whith it hasgbeen sold, 
on ul understanding that the cost will 
be refunded to anyone who is not bene. 
fited by the treatment, has undoubted- 
iy aided greatly in its introduction. 

You do not risk a cent in testing the 
healing virtues of Hyomei. 

If you have catarth, ee adele

A mind that had no joy 

Who knew his 


Obiit, Jan, 27, 1908. 
When from blanchea lips the shocking truth they learned, 
A master-soul, men knew, had passed away— 

Its eye upon the sun of Truth upturned ; 
’ A soul so high that with the truth it burried ; 

‘A soul so just, so generous, so wise, 
Men’s failings with unpharasaic eyes 

It viewed, and o’er their faiilts in pity yearned. 
A man 80 unobtrusive, yet so bold; 

So gentle, yet of such surpassing might; 
A Moses, yet a Paladin of old, 

When Honor called or Wrong assailed the Right— 
His equal when shall we again behold, 

The weak to cheer, the evil to affright ? 


Strong men stood by this strong man on his bier— 
Yea, strong in death, for truth doth never die— 
And gazed upon his brow serene and high, 

And hesitated not to shed the tear 

Of admiration; and there came no fear 
That future years will not applaud his name 
And shield the fame of him who sought not fame, 

Contented with the duties of his sphere, 

And lesser men, far distant from his grave, 
mercy, his forgiving mind, 
And who had felt the hand stretched forth to save, 

To guide the erring and to lead the blind, 

A sighful tribute to his manhood gave, 

For he had learned the art of being kind.

LONDON, Feb. 1.—Plans are now be-

ing cure for Epilepsy, or Fits, a disease

ing incurable. “Neu-Ro-Sedatus Com- 
pound” is for sale in this city by John- 
son Bros. Drug Co., Raboteau & Co.,

centers with new force and strength, 
and conquer Epilepsy. These reliable 
druggists have so much faith in “Neu-

what they have heard of the cures it 
has made in other cities and the re- 
markable results following its use in 
St. Louis, that they guarantee a com-

tizens of Glasgow, Scotland, according 
to Mayo Fesler, secretary of the Civic 
League. “Public wash houses abound 
in European cities,’* said Mr. Fesler in 
a lecture on the functions of municipal 
sovernment, before the School of Phil- 
anthropy. “Glasgow has seven of. these 
thoroughly equipped so that a woman 
may take her washing there, do the 
work by machinery in a few hours at 
a cost of ten cents a weék.’’ 

In the matter of municipal ownership 
Mr. Fesler declared the American cities 
are following the lead of Europe rapid- 
ly. Germany, he said, has 40 municipal 
theaters where prices are placed within 
the reach of the majority of the people, 
Prussia alone has 800 munic ipal savings 
banks with deposits running well up 

into the millions. 
“It_is only a question of time until

Recent Court Decisions Against 
Labor Causes Adminis- 
tration Worry. 

WASHINGTON, Feb. ‘1—Successive 
Iederal Court decisions within the past 
month averse to unions have brought 
the labor question sharply into the na- 
tional political situation and already the 
Republicang are making moves calculat- 
ed to win back the support of the un- 
ions, , 

Samuel Gompers, president of the 
American Federation of Labor, consid- 
ers the adverse decisions the severest 
blows his organization and those aliied 
with it have received in many years. 
Mr. Bryan, who is now in Washington, 
has been quick to take advantage of 
this labor sentiment and the talk of 
Yemocratic cengressmen indicates that 
they will make a special appeal to 
the union: labor. vote -in the natienal 

Secretary of War Taft. in particular, 
will, it is believed, be injured by the 
anti-labor decisions, . because his own 
record in labor cases while he was on 

the Federal bench has worked against 
him among union sympatbizers. 

Democrats Take Advantage. 
Consequently’ the Democrats are tak- 
ing pains to crystal‘ize a sentiment that 
the Republican party as revealed in its 
judges irs leading presidential 

candidate ig against union labor. 

Senator’ Beveridge of Indiana has 
started the Republican program to con- 
ciliate labor by introducing a bill to 
limit the use of the injunction by the 
courts in labor disputes. His bill pro- 
vides: that in disputes between em- 
ployers and employes no injunction or 
restraining order shall be issued until 
both sides have been heard, 

His measures stipulate that such hear- 
ing shall be held within three days 
after the injunction is asked unless both 
sides agree to a conéinuance 

A messdge from theJ President will 
follow Senator Beveridge's bill, urging 
the enactment of a new employers’ lia- 
bility act avoiding the features which 
caused the Supreme Court to. declare

statute books. 

Erdmann Law in Message. 

bn this same message it is expected 
the President will discuss the Supreme 
Court’s action Monday in declaring the 
Erdmann law uneonstitutional. The 

President was strong in his support of 
the Erdmann bill. when it was before 
Congress, and afterward, when a suit 
was brought contesting the provision 
prohibiting interstate corporations from 
discriminating against union labor, he 
instructed the Attorney-General to pre- 
pare an argument defending this pro- 
vision’s constitutionality. 

The Supreme Court held that corpor- 
ations cannot be -restrained from dis- 
charging emploves “because they are 
members of labor unions or from dis- 
criminating against them for thé same 
reason. The decision was sweeping and 
the President, it is said, has as yet been 
ppc to find a way of setting around 

[In addition to the Erdmann case, Mr. 
Gompers, in pointing out the decisions 
adverse to his cause, has mentioned 
the decision of the- Supreme Court of } 
the District of Columbia forbidding the 
American Federation of Labor to pub- 
lish the name of the Buck Stove and 
Range Co. of St. Louis in its unfair 
list;.a New York decision holding the 
bankers’ 10-hour law constitutional. and 
the Federal inwimction issued in West 
Virginia restraining officers of a\labor 
unfon from trying to induce the. em- 
ployes of a coal company from joining 
the union. 


Charles Brady, East Side High 
School Junior, Missing 
Three Months, 

Rather than face his comrades of the 

East St. Louis High School football 
team after breaking his word, Charles 
Brady, aged 17, a member of the junior 
class, left his home, 826 Baugh avenue, 
three months ago. 

No tidings have since been received 
by his sorrowing parents, Mr. and Mrs. 
Phil Brady. All inquiry concerning him 
has until now been made quietly by 
them, their constant hope being that he 
would return. 

Now his mother, unable longer to bear 
her grief, is willing that any means pos- 
sible to bring back her boy be used. 

Young Brady had a fondness for ath- 
letics and was sent by. his schoolto the 
High School field day contest at Cham- 
paign last year. He did not-win a prize 
for jumping, but he made a good record. 
His father was -opposed to his playing 
football, but early last season he won 
his mother’s consent to play in practice 
games, on condition that he ask her 
permission for each game. 

Conflict With Music. 

rie is pianist of ability and was on 
the school program last October. One of 
the members of the regular football 
team became ill. A game out of town 
was scheduled, and the members of the 
team went to Principal Manners and 
asked that Char!:: be excused from the 
program, that he might practice for the 
game. Prof. Manners granted the re- 
quest, and Charles promised his com- 
rades he would play. , 

But his mother, thinking his music 
deserved more attention than his foot- 
ball, refused her consent, and he was 
placec. in the light of breaking his prom- 
ise. Once MWe.said to her: “You wouldn't 
think of breaking your word, once you 
had given it, mamma.” But she did not 
realize his meaning until he was gone. 

He drew all his money, $50, from the 
bank the last day before the three 
months’ notice rule was‘ placed. in ef- 
fect. His ticket to the High School lec- 
ture course, the money for a ticket he 
had sold and an unsold ticket were 
found in a packet on the sofa. He did 
his rnother’s errands before leaving and 
did not seem in an angry humor. 

He is large for his age, being six feet 
tall. His hair is brown and his heavy 
eyebrows almost. meet above his gray 
eyes: His hands and feet are large.

Track Is Six-Inch Gauge and 
There Are> T unnel 
and Grades. 

LONDON, Feb. 1.—Spending $50,- 
006 on his hobby, Percy H. Leigh of 

Worsely has one of the unique toys 

of’the world—a miniature railroad 
@eemplete even to the signs “Keep ort 
| The Track.” 

. The “country” through er the 

; wailway runs is a huge, single-storied 

‘pullding of one room, 90 feet long and 
30 feet wide. It has been added to 
Mr. Leigh's residence, and was 

specially constructed sO a8 to give the 
line sufficient range’ for successful 
operation, and also to afford protec- 
tion from damp and bad weather. | 
The system is known as the “Oak- 
green & Beechvale Railroad.” The 

-Toadbed is of pitch pine, mounted on 

65 trestles some three feet from the 
floor, and the track extends to 276 
feet of a double line of rails. 

There are 1200 feet of rails in all, 
and they were spectfally rolled for 
Mr. Leigh in Shefield. They are fast- 

_tened down to 2000 pitch pine sleepers 

by means of 4000 malleable cast iron 
chairs—rails are not spiked down in 
England—held in place with hard- 

_ Wood wedges and 16,000 screws. All 
the fishplates, bolts, and nuts used in 

jo ing the rails together are exact 

| ure reproductions of those seen 

the London & Northwestern Rail- 

r ‘which is the standard system of 
United Kingdom. 

Gauge Is Stx Inches. 

The track is ballasted’ with about 
half a ton of limestone chips, and the 

ix: be ‘gauge is six inches. The stations, and 

eed the whole system, are beauti- 

: . fully lighted with electric lamps fit- 
Bi ted with reflectors. 

t In all there are 
fifty-eight of these soft, restful lights 
and a vpecially tall one is established 
Ms the freight station In order to car- 
Ty on work. These lamps are sup- 
plied from storage batteries placed 
under the track, and their capacity is 

- + enough to light up the whole room 
_ without bringing the gas into requis!i- 

tion. Electric lamps also light the 
signal cabins and posts 

along the 

In one signal box are no less than 
‘twenty-six levers, from which stretch 
flexible wires to the signal posts. Of 

_ these last there are a round dozen, 
_ three to foyr feet high, 
‘3 geowing red, green, and white. Bo-

Inscription Says Canine Was “Done 
to Death by Vivisectors’” by 
Slow Process. 

LONDON, Feb. 1—A monument erect- 
ed to “a brown dog” and “232 other 
dogs done to death in vivisection,” has 
divided the city of Battersea into. fac- 
tions. The Council is struggling with 
the question whether to remove an in- 
scription which one faction charges {s 
“offensive,”’ or vote a fund of $2800 to 
protect the canine burial ground from 

Tineensed students. 

Those supporting the monument in- 
scription are members of the National 
Anti-Vivisection Society, while the col- 

‘liege students and the British Research 

Association Insist that the wording casts 
reflection upon them and “enlighten- 

ment.” The inscription reads as fol- 


“In Memory of the Brown Terrier 
Dog, Done to Death in the Labora- 
tories of the University College in 
February, 1908, After Having En- 
dured Vivisection More Than Two 
Months, and Having Been Handed 
Over From One Vivisector to An- 
other Until Death Came to His Re- 

“Also in Memory of 232 Dogs Vivi- 
sected in the Same Place During the 
year of 1902.”’ 

Mass meetings are being held by both 
factions and memorials: by the yards 
are being sent to the Council.

“2 the history of ‘the county, which hus 
- been the scene of some of the State's 

bitterest political contests. 
the enly question. at issue is the con- 

ese Niedringhaus ‘in his 


Eissen’s career as political dictator in 
the county may be drawing to a close. 
The fight-is one of the most peculiar 


trol of the 25 county delegates to the 
State convention. 
Trouble Began Recently. 
Barly in the present political cam- 
paign, in the course of a meeting of 
prominent Republicans at the Marquette 
Hotel in St. Louis, it was reported that 
Essen had agreed to throw the strength 
of the county orgafiization to Thomes 
fight against 
City Chairman Howe: This reported 
 gtatement is said to have caused the 
present breach. Johnston says he is 
_, fighting Hssen to prevent his controlling 
~ the delegation from the county. He 
' gays hé is opposed to having the coun- 
ty controlled by any one man. 
Essen denies that he ever made any 
promise to “deliver”? the county. dele- 
, Niedringhaus in the 
ty fight or against the candidacy of 
Secretary Taft for Président. He ad- 
_ mits that he Has + :pressed himself as 
against sending an instructed delega- 
tion to the national convention, but de- 

Clares that if the majority of the coun- 


ty Republican voters want their dele- 

gates instructed for Taft he will vote 
fer such instructions. 
Johnston Well Backed. 
Among those who are lined up with 
Johnston in his fight against Hssen is 
J. C, Kiskaddon, former president of 

the County Republican Good Govern- 

ment League, which made so active a 
‘fight against Johnston for Prosecuting 
Attorney two years ago. Kiskaddon

shortly before the November -election™

aa fight and he accepted his aid, just as he

Fred Autenrieth, member of the State

who has been placed with Johnston in 
the fight, denies that he is in any way

He declares that

lowa Minister ‘Says He Has Never 
and Will Not Marry 

DES MOINES, Io., Feb. 1.—The un- 
compromising refusal of all ministers 
to marry divorced persons was’ advo- 
cated by Rev. Howland Hanson, pas- 
tor. of the First Baptist Church, at 
the meeting of the Ministerial Asso- 
ciation. While admitting that this of 
itself would not s:.p the evil, Rev. Han- 
son believed. that it would do much 
toward the accomplishment of the de- 
sired end. ‘They should,” he declared, 
“be forced to suffer the ignominy of be- 
ing married by a Justice of the Peace.”’ 
Rev. Hanson’s statements were a part 
of the discussion which followed the 
reading of a paper by Rev. James P. 
Burling on “The Relation of the Min- 
ister to the Diverce Question.’ 
Rev. Hanson was the only 
took this view of the. situation. 
others, and even Rev. Burling in his 
paper, said that ofttimes there ‘were 
extenuating circumstances which gave 
a pastor the right to overlook the fact 
that oné¢ or both of the persons taking 
the marriage oath has been before the 
divorce court. 

“Bach case mt=s—be decided for itself, 
according to best Christian judgment of 
the minister,’’ Rev. Burling said. 
Others were inclined to agree with 
this. But Rev. Hanson declared that 
early in his ministry he had made it 
a rule never to marry divorced _per- 
fons, and that this rule had never been

New York Financizl Institution. Issues Ten New 
Don’ts for Clerks. Which Make System 
of “Espionage.” 

— = 


NEW YORK, lI"eb. 1.—Employes of the 
Fifth Avenue Bank were disturbed by a 

report that a rule had been. put into ef- 
fect prohibiting them from entering any 
restaurant in which intoxicants are sold 
with meals. The younger 
led to believe that after-theater suppers 
might be held only in dairy lunchrooms 
or. similar places. Investigation, how- 
ever, developed the fact that the only 
truth in the report is that there be 
a stringent enforcement of the bank’s 
rule against the use of intoxicants in 
public places by its employes, ° 
According to the bank’s officers, there 
ig no intention of extending the‘ appl'- 

ployes frequenting drinking places. 
gambling houses and other resorts 
where bad characters congregate, which 
has been in force for some time. This 
rule in itself is extraordinarily strin- 
gent and fs rigidly enforced. 

“Try Not to Be Foolish.” 

“We try not to be foolish in the appli- 
cation of our rules,”’ said B. H. Fahcher, 
cashier of the Fifth Avenue Bank, ‘‘but 
there are certain things that. every 
young man who comes to. work here un- 
derstands. He is. told plainly that he 
must not go Into a saloon, & gumbling 
house, a poolroom, a bucket-shop or any 
disreputable resort. That rule would be 
construed to = ply to racetracks,’ prize 
fights and assémblages of that character 
as well. g 

“If this rule is violated we know it.

plies to all alike. It applies to me as 
well as to any other emplove. The bond

we know it. In such a case the man is

Again, on July 5, when told that the 
door of the strong room, wherggome 
of the jewels were kept, was found un- 
locked, he iguored the information. Fin- 
ally, on July 6, he gave his key to the 
safe containing the crown jewels to his 
office janitor to get them out in prep- 
aration for the royal visit, but the jan- 
itor was unable to turn the key of the 
peek Already Opened. 

Then Sir Arthur’ investigated and 
found that the reason the key would 
not turn wWhs that the lock had already 
been opened before the messenger tried 
it and that the jewels were gone. 

The commission expresses a full confi- 
dnce in the probity of the janitor and 
cites as a singular fact that this was 
the first time that Sir Arthur had ever 
intrusted him witb the key to the safe. 

Viears has been dismissed from his 
post by the King’s command, and Capt. 
Neville Wilkinson has been appointed in 
his place. 

Meantime the authorities say they are 
without a clew to the robber. or. the 
possessor of these jewels. This would 
be a convenient attitude to adopt if the 
object was to smother a scandal or to 
avert revelations of orgies conducted in 
Vicars’ office at night after he had left 
—orgies the character of which the po- 
lice have been able to determine by 
certain articles found concealed in its 
recesses. : 

Scandal Starts Investigation. 

The ringleader in these abominations, 
a castle official, is said to»have chal- 
lenged the Government to touch him at 
peril of involving the names of noted 
aristocrats, one closely allied to the 
King himself, being dragged to light. 
This explains why, when the Irish Gov- 
ernment began to investigate the rab- 
bery of the jewels and came upon this 
underlying scandal, they suddenly left 
the whole affair drop, and but for Vi- 
cars’ refusal to quietly accept dismiss- 
al, nothing more would have been 
heard of it. 

The opposition is yearning to use the 
Government's inaction in the matter 
for political purposes, but 
mentary whips got a tip straight from 
the court that whoever shall be re- 
sponsible for stirring up the scandal 
will earn the King’s strong disapprov- 
al. The probabilities are that these 
influences will prevail unless some un- 
foreseen disclosure forces a {ill in- 
quiry. ; 

Vicars has issued an appeal to all 
Irishmen to support his demand for a 
public inguiry into all of the cireum-

she rejected his proffers of marriage,

In @ letter, Hendricks told Mrs. Watts 
that when he was gone he wanted her

Not a Poet. 

‘‘Feed’’ wires of a new design have

Miller, a’ coal déaler of Alton. Miller’s

this invention. R 

An alarm clock sets this device about 
its task of feeding Miller’s 26 horses 
without disturbing his slumbers. Con- 
nected with the “‘‘winder’’ of the alarm 
is a wire running over a pulley and to 
a trigger which controls traps on thef 
bottom of the feedbaxes.

The clock is then adjusted to jingle

Years Ago. 

SIOUX CITY, Io., Feb. 1.—Brought 
here from England by her father near- 
22 years ago, when she was less 
than 2 years old, and left in the care 
of a farmer’s family near St!.ux City. 
Miss Nellie Ingham now believes that) 
she is one of the heiresses to an En- 
glish estate amounting to $100,000. An 
action im the Woodbury County Dis- 
trict Court to prove her identity was 
commenced by Judge A. Van Wagenen. 

During the corn palace days of 1885 
a poorly clad Englishman carrying 4% 
scantily clothed little girk in his arms 
went into a grocery store and asked 
if anyone there could recommend a 
Rome for his little daugiter. 

He gave his name as John Ingham 
Jr. and that of the girl as Nellie. The 
girl was given over to the Louls Pag- 
gar family, farmers near Sioux City, 
and she lived there until about 18 years 
old. Then she went out to make her 
own living.

ee: The greatest fleet} that ever steered 
: into the ocean wastes of the Southern 
” Hemispheré’s outposts is now approach- 
Bo ing the savage waterway of the world— 
- the Straits of Magellan. 

a The negotiation of the hazardous pas-

Admiral Evans, on its way to San 
Francisco and then to encircle the globe, 
will be the nearest approach to the 
‘navigation feat of the sturdy Portu- 
guese explorer, Magalhaens, who first 
tested the perils of this treac herous un- 

' known in 16520. , 

_ The Straits of Magellan are grander 
and more inspiring than any other 
Waterway in the world. The passage- 

* Way is nearly 400 miles long and in 
width from two miles to thirty. The 

Straits, from the.sandy pit of Cape Fir- 

gs gins in the east of Cape Pillar at the 

Pacific entrance, range in depth from 

straits there are. peaks of 
naked rock shooting vertically out of 

the whirling tide for 3000 feet, uncouth, 
repellant and sublime. Perpetual snow 
robes the summits that stand ragged 
against the tempests of this dreary land. 
Tremendous squalls. ‘roar -across ” the 
archipelago through which pass the 

‘gtraits, squalls as white as fog with 
Eas i Continual Snow Squalls.

The battleships will naturally proceed 
through the straits in single file, with

Possession Bay, with Plumper. Anchor-

Captain, ‘“‘you can step ever and let go 
in Spitful Anchorage, on “Terra del’ 

The steamship is meanwhile making 
good use of the broad reaches and 
surges ahead at full speed. The sky is 
still fairly clear, and: events are mov- 
ing smoothly, when the land ahead on 
both sides is seen to be closing in, until 
there seems little chance of further 
progfess. This is the First Narrows, 
10 miles long, 2 miles wide, with a depth 
of 40 fathoms, or 240 feet. All the tidal 
movement of this end of the Magellan 
Strait passes through~-these Narrows, 
and they are deep and fearfully swift. 

Fierce Cross Currents. 

“Leok at the rips,’’ cries the skipper. 
“There is a fierce cross current here, 
and we have to stand by to see that we 
are not set over on the Great Orange 
Bank. Just abreast of it the current is 
four knots.” Then thé vessel swings 
into the funnel. 

“What-is the speed 
here?’ asks the passenger. “Eight 
knots, and the rise and fall is 40 feet 
in the springs,’’ answers the Captain; 
without taking his eyes from the ship’s 

The Second Wattews are 12 miles long 
and from four to six miles wide, and 
the rise and fall Is only 23 feet even 
in the springs. Then comes the New 
Channel afterward, and Broad Sound, 
on the road to Punta Arenas. 

“‘That’s Sandy Point, the southern- 
most city in the Western Hemisphere," 
says the skipper, following the travel- 
‘er’s gaze to the gray blur. “Some ca!) 
it Punta Arenas, but.we sailors call ‘t 
in our own lingo, Which is the En- 
glish of it, anyway. Taking it full 
and by, you may say it is the toughest 
town on the earth. It’s lost half its 
snap, though, in the last twenty years. 
Too many steamers. You may call it 
off the tourist track, if you like. But 
how different the thing is from the ola

And then descend the storms of hail 
and the long barbs of sleet that drive 
the stoutest seamen under cover. The 
willilwaws, the awful gusts of wind 
that burst from thé ravines, careen the 
steamer till the -skipper peets over the

“At one time,” he.shouts. “the U. &_S.

And so on through English Reach the 
voyager steams, clinging to the bridge 
stanchions, for he does not want to miss 
anything, ‘with all the air a dazzle of 
snow and the drum of the engines un- 
der him. Then comes Ca Crosstide, 
at the western point of Carlos Island, 
where the tides from the Pacific meet 
those from the Atlantic. 

Crooked Reach is the next arm af the 
strait that must be navigated, long, 
verse and narrow. Patagonian Ind ane 
are often seen in the Reach, who will 
barter the skins from around their 
loins for alcohol. Then comes Port 
Churruca, just beyond Cape Upright, on 
Desolation Island, a place of giant gla- 
ciers, enclosed by snow-capped moun- 
tains, amid scenery as grand as may 
be found in the entire strait. 

World's Stoermiest Cape. 

Just beyond is the open high rc-1 
to the Pacific Ocean, which is here pre- 
vented from casting its breakers over 
into thé Magellan Strait by the nar- 
rowest part of Desolafion Island; at the 
apex of which stands Cape Pillar, pos- 
sibly the stormiest place in the world, 
not even excepting Cape Horn, the Cape 
of Good Hope or Cape Leeuwin. North- 
east of the terrible Pillar, but within 
the strait, is a beetling mass of gran- 
ite known as ’.Westminster Hall, and 
25 miles northwest of Cape Pillar rise 
the Evangelists, showing a white light 
almost 200 feet above the sea. 

These four wild rocks sticking out of

to enter the Magellan Strait from the 
westward unless this light is sighted. 
“You must make the light,’’ says. the 
skipper. ‘“‘No matter how bad the 
weather, you must heave to somehow 
outside till daylight. If you don’t—well, 
I never knew even a dead body to come 
ac..ore from a vessel cast away on Cape 
Pillar.’’ And the master-mariner goes 
below for the first time In 20 hours.

“Sick and miserable, dog-tired and a 
quivering wreck." That is how Mrs. 
Fannie Startzman, 2133 Eugenia street, 
is said to have described her condition 
for the last 20 years. 

‘“T had been sick and miserable 
sir.ce I was a girl,”’ she is reported as 
saying. “I suffered constantly with 
those excruciating pains in my back 
ane kidneys and had much trouble with 
my stomach. I could hardly get about 
and grew thin and pale. Many doctors 
could not stop the pains that made my 
life a burden. They didn’t know what 
was the matter. . 

‘Phenomenal Kraus’ specialists, 523 
Chestnut, told me I had kidney trouble. 
Tleir treatment cured me and I am now 
a new woman. Those dreadful pains 
are gone. I now get around better than 
I ever could, feel better than I ever 
did and have gained 20 pounds. I swear 
to this, hoping other women will take

COLEMAN, Tex., Feb. 1—The proj- 
ected railrodd to run from Abilene to 
Brady by the way of Ballinger or Cole- 
man is arousing citizens here to a united 
effort to induce the line to select the 
Coleman route, the coal mine shipments 
from here and Waldrip being offered as 
one inducement. 

It is expected that a bonus of $50,- 
000 will be raised soon to secure the new 
road, but the Ballinger people are also 
making a strong fight and a lively tug 
of war by towns on the opposing routes 
will take place before one is named. 

There are good inducements either 
way and Ballinger says it will give the 
new road a bonus. The two routes are 
about the same Jength and are similar in 
the lay of the land. .

a ‘Julia "Marlowe and the .Varying Appeal of | 

_ “Gloria”—Three Promising Offerings of 
Near Future — New York and 
London Seasons— Merry 

Opera War. 

7. LOVIS playgoers who saw Miss Julia Marlowe ‘in her new 
“Gloria,” at the Olympic this past week, seem to be divided into two op- 
‘ pesing forces as to its merits. 

Many have told me that they relished the play keenly, 
‘light- -hearted and entertaining bit of work, not great, yet worthy. 
| plain that it dragged, that there was too much talk in the lay! fx of its plot- 
foundation, and that, but for Miss Marlowe's redeeming grace, they believe 
.« Gloria” would be a distinct failure. The Olympic was crowded at every per- 
Tgebmance of the play, but this, of course, was mainly due to the fact that it was 
a new Marlowe offering. 

As for myself, I liked “Gloria.” Iconcede that. there 
“‘tailkiness’’ in its first act, but I contend that this cannot weil 
‘the #ase of such a story as the play tells, and against this possible biemish I 
place the fact that there are many bright lines in the play’s peginning, also 
an effective eriphasizing of character. Captain Bambazone, Gloria herself, Sir 
‘Philip Lilley, the Madonna Cassandra. the mincing poet-Count, truculent old 
‘Mareo Ricci, Gloria’s uncle—all these folk were very clearly etched before the 
first curtain fell. 

And surely the play went with euisibad action after this opening act. 
“all in ali, it seems to me that ‘Gloria’ ts quite a creditable ac mca along 

worthy lines. 

_ ¥, ECAUSE of these honest‘ differences of opinion 
: B “Gloria,” I shall watch the futute fortunes of the play with peculiar 
' interest. ; 

It doesn’t surprise me in the least to. hear from 
‘Charlies Wyndham has purchased the English rights of the play and that le 
purposes to give it a Ldndon production early this month. It won't sur- 
prise me if “Gloria’’ does very well, itdeed, in London. The English have 
a liking for a touch of poetry and puré diction and something more than 
a transient timeliness in their plays. They have even proved, indeed, that 
they are capable of sincerely appreciating the ‘strength and beauty of ‘Mte 
phen Phillips’ tragedies, and they were quick to feel whatever of poetic 
charm there is in our own Petcy Mackaye's “Jeanne d@’Arc."’ It may be that 
‘London will place its stamp of approval on this British-made play that had 
its first production in ‘“‘the States.’’ : 

Anyway, Miss Marlowe is to be 
senting a new poetic comedy—they’re mighty

Ew YORK is beginning to say, philosophically, that this ‘has been “a 
hard- season for bad plays,” and then it names over the failures and 
‘ the suecesses, claiming that good plays are as sure as ever of an appre- 

tiative reception. 

~ -“The Ranger,’ “Sapho and Phaon,” “The Christian Pilgrim,’ “The Evan- 

‘gelist,”” “The Step-Sister,” “The Girls of Holland’’—these are recalled with the 
fFeflection that they -did not deserve success, wherefore it is well that they did 
not achieve it. There is no good reason, says New York, why disaster to these 
‘plays should be deplored. 
_ But the plays that deserved success succeeded+among 
rn Man,” “The Thief,” “The Witching Hour,’ ‘‘The Merry Widow,’ ‘Miss 
a ook of Holland,” “The Girl Behind the Counté?,” “Polly of the Circus,” 
“The THik of New York,’ quite a notable list, indeed. 
aie , But fT see no mention of “The Jesters,"’ Maude Adams’ new play, as being 
one Of the. big hits. Some of the critics didn't think much of it. Is the pub- 

Tig, of the same mind? 
failing even faster and more nu merously than in New York during the 

| M early part of this season. 

. Beerbohm Tree, withdrawing “The Mystery. of Edwin Drood’”’ His 
Majesty's Theater, offers up loud lamentations, declaring dismally that this is 

the worst theatrical season in his recollection. Other London’ managers join 
‘in the doleftil chorus, and it is said that $250 a night constitutes the average re- 
_celpts of West End theaters. : 

Even our own Henry James suffers. He ts’so incensed by London’s disdain 
or his “Guy Donville’ that he now insists ‘upon Forbes-Robertson giving his 
new comedy of English life its first produc (iow in Dublin instead of the British

that be, with a Henry James comedy bearing down upon them?

‘4 HIS month, which today sees the close Of the Garrick’s career as a vau- 
a T deville house, will also witness the opening of the American, a ‘new 
i heme for vaudeville, according to the present plans of the Oppenheimers. 
. the American's managers. 
on _ ‘The “premiere” of tliis house will be made a brilliant event in local stag 
e history, and it is said that playgoers will ‘find the American one of the 
Ymost beautiful and comfortable houses in this country. <As to its book- 
ings, they must speak for themselves, of course, and the Oppenheimers seem 
‘ seonfident that thie will be done in a manner to compel success. 
fa Also, busy as they are with the American, these energetic brothers are lay- 
_ $ng the foundation for a distinguished season at their Suburban Theater 
 mext summer. I understand that the liet of stars already engaged includes 
Amelia Bingham, Henrietta ~rosman, Virginia Harned and James K. Hackett, 

pnd that negotiations with others equally attractive are under way. 
3 All of which looks premising for St. Louis theatrical. 

NN) ceasing to be a vaudeville house the Garrick temporarily becomes the 
scene of a grand opera engagement—and next week we'll confront the 
uncemmen situation ef having two grand opera companies on our hands 

at the same time. 

‘How shall we acquit ourselves, assuming that both companies are worthy? 
a trying situation for any cityful of busy people—New)York never 

it conclusively until Mr. Hammerstein threw dewn the xzauntlet to 
Conried—and, taking it for granted that ‘the Italian company will ex-

to demand our coincident attention. What shall be the outcome of such 

In New York it was the unexpected that happened. “Neither Mr. Con- 
ried ner Mr. Hammerstein suffered by competition—instead of one house 
prefiting at ‘the expense of the other, both flourished. Indeed, New York went 
‘ o opera-mad, it,dleveloped, that, in addition to crewding the Metropolitan 
ia the Manihatian, it also made the fortune of a less impressive little 
m company that had the audacity te effer grand epera at ponular

Messrs. Wagenhals & Kemper will 
present Miss Blanche Walsh at the Cen- 
tury this week, opening tonight, in Jacob 

Gerdin’s strong play, “The Kreutzer 
Sonata.” This drama was seen at the 
Garrick last season, with Mme. Kalich 
in the star role, in.which Miss Walsh 
has the best opportunity since she was 
seen in “The Resurrection,’ and the 
supporting company is said to be ex- 
cellent. The play tells a powerful stery, 
its scenes being Iaid in Russia and this 
country, and there are several situations 
of most intense dramatic interest, the 
piot relentlessly developing to its in- 
evitable tragic ending. 

Cole and Johnson, colored comedians, 
in their new musical comedy, ‘The 
Shoee-F ly Regiment.’’ come to the Grand 
for the week beginning za Nhe today's 
matinee. The story opens with: a scene 
in front of a colored irfdustrial school 
in the South, showing cotton fields in 
the background. The. Spanish-Ameri- 
can War begins and a company of col- 
ored soldiers is organized and goes to 
the front: The scene changes to the 
Philippines, where the colored girls ap- 
pear as Spanish senoritas, with char- 
acteristic music, songs and danées, 
there is a touch of military melodrama, 
a battle scene, the -home-coming, a 
happy ending—and all with plenty of 
comedy and bright music. 

J. Rosamond Johnson plays the role 
of the hero in love with the daughter 
of the industrial school’s principal. Bob 
the leading comedy role, first 
school janitor and then as an 
army cook and would-be hero, the com- 
is said to be capable, with a cho- 
rus of 60, and the music to range 
rag-time and plantation melodies 
something bordering on grand opera.

Valley: Play. 

T. LOUIS. playgoers will 

S cially interested in the 

ment that Nat. C. Goodwin 

be starred by Liebler & Co. next 

eon in a new play rich with Mississipp! 
Valley ‘‘atmosphere”’ and native charac- 
ter types. 

The play is now being: wréten by 
Booth Tarkington and Harry Leon’ Wil- 
son and its title will be ‘““Cameo Kirby.” 
The title role, to be played by Mr. 
Goodwin, is that of a Mississippi River 
gambler of the old days when river 
travel was at its height and reckless 
Southern planters were wont to gtake 
their all upon the turn of a card tn 
Sames of chance played on the. pala¢ 
tial steamers plying between St. Louis 
and New Orleans. This old river gum- 
bler was known as “Cameo” Kirby be- 
cause of his fondness for cameos as ar- 
ticles of personal adornment, and the 
character is said to be not only pe- 
culiarly picturesque, but absolutely true 
to life. 

Nat. Goodwin was selected by the 
Lieblers as béing the American actor 
best qualified to create such a fole, 
and those who remember. him. es the 
Sheriff of Pike County in Augustus 
Thomas’ play, “In Mizzourdh,’’ will. be 
apt to agree that the choice is an ex- 
cellent one. The Lieblers believe that 
the play is destined to make one of the 
biggest hits: of next season, owing alike 
to its strong dramatic qualities and na- 
tive appeal, and it' is thought that Nar. 
Goodwin will find in the role of ‘‘Cameo” 
Kirby the most congenial and fruitful 
ef his entire career. 

Edna Goodrich, leading woman in Mr. 
Goodwin's:-company, this season, will be 
engaged for this producti6én; entering 
the cast .under a special contract. It 
is said that, in scenic realism and fidel- 
ity to the character types of the life to 
be depicted, “Cameo Kirby’’ will be the 
most notable American production ef 

Will be the Havlin attrac- 
tion this week, opening with today’s 
matinee. This was one of the _ best 
drawing cards at Havlin's last season. 
The play gives Mr. Corbett excellent 
opportunity for good work a light 
comedian, and possesses intense 
melodramatic interest. The famous 
English detective of Conan. Doyle fic- 
tion, Sherlock Hoimes,. figures in ‘the 
for the 

the Lady” 



“The Cowboy and the Squaw,’ 

first time in St. Louis. 

The Standard’s offering for this week. 
beginning with today’s matinee. the 
Avenue Girls... The musica! comedy, 
“Tom, Dick and Harry,” and a bright 
vaudeville bill will be presented. Ex- 
tra feature, Mile. Lerraine, “‘the lady 
in the gold statue.” 


Chagles Robinson and his Night Owls 
begin 'a week's engagement at the Gay- 
ety this afternoon. Two musical farces, 
entitled “Who Stole My Wife?” and 
“Solomon, the Soldier." and a clever 
vaudeville, bill will be presented, 

Hans Loebel, leading ¢omedian of ihe 
x argo Boe Company, will he hon- 
ored witli a benefit by the management 
at the Odeon tonight, and his selection 
is a new farce. “Sie und Ihr Mann” 
(She and Her Husband), by Bernard 
Buchbinder. ‘Those whe want to laugh 
will find plenty of opportunity to realize 
their heart's desire. 

During all of this week the Columbia 
Theater orchestra will play the “Skull 
and Bones Two-Step,” written by Fran- 
cis De Kressier Brady, a St. Louls com- 
poser. The piece was written for and 
dedicated to the Skull and Bones Club 
of the College of Physicians and Sur- 
geons, and was the principal feature 
O thelr first annual ball, given at West- 
minster Hall last December. It #0 
Pleased the 300 guests that it had to be 
played three times. 

Coming te the Century: Feb. 9, “The 

fing the Place and the Girl;” Feb.. 16, ; 


T with dainty Minnie Dupree 
and an excellent company, 
comes to the Olympic for the week 
opening Sunday night. The story of 
the play is based on the reincarnation 
of souls. It introduces its characters in 
a modern London studio, transports 
them in the two next acts to their ex- 
istence of 300 years age, and ends with 
a return to the present time. The piece 
is said to be rich in literary satire. The 
heroine has nourished her soul on his- 
torical novels, and the second and third 
acts are devoted to an amusing con- 
trast between romantic imaginings and 
the sordid facts of histery. 

Ned Wayburn, one of the cleverest 
producers and stage directors of musi- 
cal comedies, has added many new 
features to ‘‘The Time, the Place and 
the Girl,” which begins a return en- 
g2gement at the Century next Sunday 
evening. -John E. Young, the popular 
leading comedian of the Delmar Garden 
summer season, has the leading comedy 

John Philip Sousa, at the head of his 
famous band, will appear at the Odeon 
on Tuesday and Wednesday. evenings of 
this week, and at a special Wednesday 
matinee. The soloists of the three 
concerts are Miss Lucy Allen, soprano; 
Miss Jeannette Powers, violinist: Mr. 
Herbert L. Clark, -cornetist, and Mr. 
Joseph Norrito, clarinet. and programs 
of exceptional attractiveness will be of- 
fered. Sousa‘'s ‘‘Last Days of Pompeii’ 
and Grieg’s ‘‘Peer Gynt” suite are feat- 
ures of Tuesday night’s program. 

At the Odeon on Monday ev ening, Feb. 
10, Dwight Elmenderf will begin his 
series of five Monday night illustrated 
travel talks on American subjects of 
great natural interest. The opening lec- 
ture will present “The Panama Cawal,”’ 
the pictures showing now that great 
work’ is being done, all the material for 
the lecture having been obtained by Mr. 
Elmendorf during a visit to Panama 
last spring. 

One of the prettiest in. “The 
Parisian Model’. at. the Olympic this 
week will be the skating rink, for which 
it Was necessary’ to lay a new maple 
floor over the original Stage flooring. 
This is presented in the last act, with 
dozens of daintily clad skating girls 
making a pretty picture,.and has made 
one of the play's biggest hits.

Higginsville Preachers Are 
Furious Over the 


HIGGINSVILLE, Mo., Feb. 1.—The 
Higgineville “drys,’’ who are waging a 
campaign to place saloons in Higgins- 
ville under the ban at next Friday's 
election, received a shock tonight 4vhen 
the report of Mayor E. W. Mollen- 
camp’s committee of the liquor some 5 
in Kansas was rend. 

The purpose of the committee, com- 
posed of the Mayor, W. H. Bennette, a 
strong advocate of prohibition, and 
-~ George Hart, who favors municipal and 
State control of the saloons, was to sce 
if ‘the prohibition law in Kansas pro- 
hibited.”” They found that ita not, 
according to the report which Was read 
at the mass meeting here tonight. 

In their report and personally 
three investigators stated that not on'‘y

tigers” in Kansas, but that the prohibi- 
tion law was openly violated. And one 
of the paragraphs of ‘the report de-

working up an agitation to have the 


saloons closed are furious over the con--

Cominitteeman Bennette, the “dry” 
‘member of the party, was asked if he 
found any trouble getting liquor in .the 
prohibition State. 

“T ami sorry to say that.I did not,” 
was the reply. 

“The Mayor took 4s up there and had 
aman to show us around. This was 
‘necessary, because we have not much 
time at our disposal. We intended visit- 
ing two Kansas towns in one day. The 
resident who met us in Atchison anid 
took us to sce where liquor could be got, 
goon had us in three places. Mayor 
Mollencamp, who was most fair to me, 
_ I must admit, told me that he thought 
it would be better if I w ould find my 
own Way around,

“T acted on this guggestion by leaving 
the Mayor and Mr. Hart and I! went 
‘Inte a poolroom. I supposed that if 
liquor was sold at all it would be in 
connection with a poolroom 

“Il went in and played two games 
with a man in there. I, of zourse, had 
never seen him before. When we fin- 
ished, I asked him if it was not pogsi- 
ble to get a drink. He told me he 
guessed it was, as he was the proprie- 
tor, and he had some ging?ér ale. 

“‘Give me some of that.’ I said, and 
he produced a quart bottle and a glass. 
I thought the glass a mighty small 
one for a dfink of ginger ale, but filled 
it. On raising it to my lips, I found 
it wag whisky. 

-“*| cannot drink this rotten stuff,’ 
J told him. ‘Lét me have some bettered) 
He said he was sorry, but he had just 
it sold his last bottle of beer.’ 

Mayor Mollencamp eiiielill :

“We were too busy,” said the May-{

doing a splendid business. We were 
told that the joints were not the only

was suggested that we visit a drug

ited an Atchison drug store. 

Committeeman Hart explaineg . the 
‘modus operandi of how liquor is sold. 

“The register lay out on the counter, 
“he said, ‘and when we asked for a 
rink, we were required to make an af 
fidavit that we needed liquot for med. 
ical purposes. . 

He Had “Stemach Trouble.” 

“The man who was with us said he 
had stomach trouble, and the druggist

“Was no effort made by the prescrip- 
_ Hon clerk ‘to ascertain if the oath was 
_ being made sincerely, or that there was 
7 any other .evidence that the lquor 
- asked for was needed for its medicinal 

effects?” was inqu!red. 

' “I have to admit that he did not pay 
mi the slightest attention to that.” said 
Committeeman Bennette. 

“I donot think he even looked at 
us. Our friend said that he wanted a 
@rink of whisky, and the register was 
tossed to him. While he was signing it, 

, ‘Clerk was getting the liquor.”

"We will lose $4000 income by local 
|} option and there will be just as much 
liquor drunk as at present,”’ he says. 
“We need every dollar of the license 
money. To make up a single thousand 
‘dollars. we will have to reduce the 
wages of the superintendents of lights 
and water from $60 to $0. We will 
have to shut the lights down at ? 
o'clock instead of midnight in order to 
-have $20 a month in coal, and other- 
wise we will have to retrench. The 
most we can do is save $1000, when we 
really need to save $4000. In return for 
the sacrifice of this revenue we will get 
the ‘blind tiger’ as it‘is in Kansas, and 
as it is in those Missdéuri towns where 
they have driven tlie saloon out.” 

“Prohibition is the same failure today 
it was 20 yearg ago in lowa when I 
was a traveling man,” said the Mayor. 

Mayor Mullencamp is a strict teeto- 
taler. He took the pledge 15 years ago 
and since has never tasted liquor. 

Trenton Report Beats “Drys.” 

The Higginsville report is not the 
first which has been made in connec- 
tion with a local option fight in Mis- 
souri. At Trenton, when the cam- 
paign was at its height, the merchants 
appointed former Sheriff Meyers to go 
into Kansas towns and ascertain true 

At a mass meeting held Thursday 
night, Meyers made his report. He 
found the conditions the Same as re- 
ported by the Higginsville committee. 
This report was read on the eve of elec- 

The réport was the main discussion 
when the men began gathering at the 
polls the next morning. The result was 
that Trenton voted to retain the saloons 
by a majority of more than 300.

Gen. John W. Noble Is Attending 
Forestry Association Convention 

in Interest of Waterways. 

WASHINGTON, Feb. 1—Gen. Jolin 
W. Noble of St. Louis, former Attor- 
ney General.- believes the residents of 

the Mississipp! Valley should be edu- 
cated in the preservation of the Missis- 
sippi and Missouri rivers‘and for that 
reason he is in Washington attending 
the convention of the American For- 
estry Association. 

“Scientists believe that -the destruc- 
tion of the forests on our mountain 
ranges is decreasing the ‘water supply 
in our rivers, or at any rate tending to 
make their flow spasmodic,’ said Gen. 
Noble. “I directed the creation of 
some ofvour big forest reservations un- 
der President Harrison and I want to 
hear what the experts of the forestry 
association have to say on the effect 
of the forests on the river. 

“Tf we are going to have a deep wa- 
terway we should begin teaching the 
people how to preserve it. St. Louisans 
would be in a pretty bad way if the old 
rivers should go gry...

A New | Way of Treating 

Mr. A. F. Oliver, a prominent citizen 

“Be clean or absent’? is the precept 
which governs the schoolroom of Miss 
Agnes Toohey of Alton. 

Miss Toohey #ays that in her task 
of infusing knowledge into childish 
heads she finds the average skull is dis- 
couragingly thick without an outer coat- 
ing of Alton clay. 

Each morning whén her school assem- 
bles Miss Téohey makes an examination 
of her pupils’ faces and hands. .Someé- 
times every face glows from recent 2s- 
siduous scrubbing, and at other 
every face does not glow with assidu- 
ous scrubbing. On the occasions when 
a dirty face is found the wearer of the 
disgraceful countenance is required ‘to 
carry a note home to his mother, re- 
questing that the defect be remedied 
and the student returned to school._ 

Strong Odor Traced. - 
last week Miss Toohey detected an 
odor in her room which wag not one to 
be contused with that of attar of roses. 
She soon traced the objectionable 
smell to a small boy who had just 
that dav entered the sthool. — 
Miss Toohey sent the bey home 
armed with a note asking the mother 
to please eradicate the odor by bath- 
ing the boy so that he might be a 
pleasing companion for the other lit- 
tle boys and girls. When he came 
back he brought the same odor and a 
note. The note read: 
“Dear Miss Teacher: 
“Johnnie ain’t no rose.

covered it to be a scientific fact that 
a clean child is easier to teach than a 
dirty one. When asked if she con- 
Sidered her theory concerning the 
thickness of a dirt layer explained 
this fact she laughingly said that she 
did not know as to that, 

“At any rate it makes them feel 
bétter to be clean and it gives them

them to learn,” she said.

World’s Richest Man.‘ 


ALLEN LEVINGSTON, widow of Dr. William 
Levingston, in reality William A. Rockefeller, has lived in Free- 
port, Ill., for 34 years. She is 70 years old, a refined, kindly, Chris- 

tian woman, an active member for many years of the Presbyterian Chureh, 

and of the Womén’s Club. 

_ A veporter for the Post-Dispatch saw her twice last week in her home 
and talked with her about the dual life of her husband, William A. Rocke- 
feller, who married her in Canada in 185 under the name of William Lev- 

‘ingston and who kept from her the secret of his identity until a few vears 

before his death in 1906. 
bt REFUSE positively to discuss the matter,’ she said. 
‘| ‘Will you say that your husband, William Levingston, was not

: "No, I wi'l not.’ 
“Will you say? that they 
- “No, I will not.” 
“Will you say whether rou’ know or dp not know the truth about it?’

deni. “No I must not say anything,’’ she said. | 3 
“You started to say that you must be "faithful and keep your hus-

: the body of Dr. William Avery Rockefeller, father of the “oil 
king,” John D. Rockefeller, lies in an unmarked grave in Oakland 
Cemetery, Freeport, Ul. He died in that city May 11, 1906, aged 96 
5 months and: 28 days. 

‘For-fifty years he led a double life. Under the caaeeni name of 
Dr. William Levingston he farmed and sold medicines of his own de- 
coction in Illinois and North Dakota. “During those same years he oc- 
casionally appeared at the homes of his sons and.among his old ac- 
‘quaintances in the Fast’as Dr. William A. Rockefeller. 

The facts have been collected by a Post-Dispatch reporter 
whose investigation has just been completed. 
we ‘‘Dr. Levingston entered 160 acres of land in the name of Wil 
ee liam A. Rockefeller at Park River, N. D., where the deed is on file 
- ‘in the Registrar's office. He lived on the land parts of 16 summers 
as ‘Dr. Levingston.’ ’’

____‘The widow of ‘‘Dr. Levingston’’ would not have that name cut

When a Post-Dispatch reporter showed her the evidence that 
her husband and William A. Rockefeller had been one man, she 

Said she must remain “a true woman to the end’’ and ‘“‘let John

: Frank Rockefeller and Pierson D. Briggs would not deny the

of the assassination of King Carlos and 
the Crown Prince of Portugal was re- 
ceived here late tonight In a cablegram 
from Minister Bryan at Lisbon, which 
conveyed the simple announcement of 

the commission of the crime. President 
Roosevelt was at once notified by Act- 
ing Secretary of State Bacon and ex- 
pressed his deep sorrow. Tomorrow he 
will send his formal expressions of 
grief to the royal family. 

Government officials and members of 
the diplomatic corps were shocked at 
the news, and on every’ hand were 
heard words of sorrow over the tragic 
ending of Portugal's: monarch and his 
heir to the throne.

LISBON, Feb. 1.—Dom Catlos, King of all'the Partie nat J 
the Crown Prince Luis Philippe were shot to death at 5:30 0 <= ’ 

turn from Villa Vicosa, by a band of men, who fired a volley f 

The royal family was driving in an open carriage when 
group of men at the corner of Praca de Commercio and the Ru 
de Arsenal suddenly sprang toward the carriage, and, 1 
their carbines, fired in concert, mortally wounding the King 
the Crown Prince and slightly wounding the King’s second 
Prince Miguel. 

Queen Amelie, who rose in the carriage and tried to shield t 
Crown Prince, was unhurt. z 

Immediately. the police guard fired on the regicides, wa p 
three of them and capturing three others. One of the prisoners 
committed suicide in his cell. It is believed that at least one of the 
slayers was a Spaniard. : 

The King and the Crown Prince onc was shot three times a | 
they lived only long enough to be carried to the marine arsens 
nearby, where they expired. esi 


Almost at the first shot the King fell back on the cushions a1 
at the same moment the Crown Prince was seen to half rise a 
then sink back on the seat. | 

Queen Amelie jumped up and threw herself toward the € 
Prince in an effort to save his life at the cost of her own, t 
Prince already had received hisideath wound. The police g 
immediately fired upon the , 

The royal family was on its way from the railroad station & 
the palace. A strong guard was in attendance because of tht 
recent uprising in the city and the discovery of a plot tomssass 
nate Premier Franco and overthrow the monarchy. But the ban 
of murderers had selected the most advantageous spot for | 3 
commission of their crime, for they were concealed from the ¢yi 
of the police until the carriage had wheeled into the 4 
Commercio, a large square. 


The bodies of the King and the Crown Prince were ren 
from the marine arsenal in two closed carriages to the royal j

An examination of the wounds of the King, who was

, come ee of irkioet couriers thundered through the streets 
“summoning to the bedside of the wounded yogth all the skilled 
physicians that could be found in Lisbon. 
The latest bulletin from the bedside of Prince Manuil states 
‘that at present there is little danger of complications from the 
wounds. : 

Among the first to be called to the palace was Premier Franco, 
the dictator of the Kingdom. Franco was protected by a squadron 
of cavalrymen as he hastened to the palace, and there he conferred 
with the Queen and high officials on what immediate action peal 

be. taken. , 

The tragedy was the direct result of King Carlos’ recent po- 
litical moves, carried out by Senhor Franco, the Premier, who pub- 
lished a decree dissolving the Cortes and stated that after seven 
months of strife he had found it impossible to govern with a Par- 
liament and at the same time carry out his legislative program, 
which included a policy of social and economic reforms and efficient 
_ party control of the administratin. In.this he established a ver- 
* itable dictatorship and since then has governed with an iron hand. 
. For the last few months it has been evident that trouble was 
brewing for Portugal and that revolutionists were at work. After 
numerous minor risings had been. put down, the police, on Jan. 23, 
uncovered a widespread plot to overthrow the monarchy and pro- 
. claim Portugal a republic. The plot was organized by a _ small 
group of advanced Republicans, and the original intention was to 
assasinate Premier Franeo and depend upon secret Republican an¢ 
labor organizations, armed with bombs and revolvers, to complete 
the work of revdlution in the streets. — : 
But the police raided the meeting place of the conspirators 
-and made a number of arrests, seizing quantities of bombs and oth- 
er weapons, and since then other raids have been made in Lisbon, 
with the result that the’ police believed they had the revolutionaries 
well in hand. Each day, however, brought new evidences of the 
, ramifications of the plot to remove the heads of the state and 
~ establish republicanism in the country, 

A treaty with England, hoteever not only provides for as- 
sistance from that country in event of foreign invasion of Por- 
 tugal. but it also was designed to safeguard the Crown against 
any danger from revolution in the form of an attempt upon the 
» monarchy itself. 

Dom Miguel de Braganza, the pretender to the ticcanb; and 
head of the house of the Jine of Braganza, which formerly reigned 
over Portngal, is likely to come to the front again because 
of the death of King Carlos and the Crown Prince. The 
father of Dom Miguel was the late-King Miguel I, Duke of Bra- 

4 ns , Who seized the throne from his niece, Queen Maria _ II, 
leughter of Emperor Pedro I of Brazil, and was King of Portu- 
7 al from 1828 to 1834, at which latter date Quéen Maria was re- 
* stored to the throne. 
_ There have been numerous rumors of a. rebellion with the “ob- 
of placing Dom Miguel on the throne, but recently these were 
Mot given serious consideration. Last June Dom Miguel, through 
th medium of 7H newspapers of Vienna, mmvenerd his readiness

- It was a custom of the Prince, in the heydey of his youth, to enter the bull 
ring as a toreador. Of course he did that under a fictitious name, but most of 
* the people knew the identity of the graceful, fearless chap who delivered the 
death thrust with such exquisite skill, and they cheered him with loyal! enthusi-.

His marriage to the beautiful Amelie of Orieans ‘was tinged with ro- 
mance unusual for roy eity. The. young Duke of Braganza always said his wife 
must be a “faity princess,” rich and beautiful and good. It was long before 
he found any who seemed to meet those difficult requirements, 

a photograph of Amelie and showed it to the young Portuguese Prince. ' Carlos 
fell-in love. They were married in May, 1886. 

The Queen was the daughter of the Comte de, Paris,’ “the first Prince 
of the blood roval of France,” who. resided aq a country gentleman at Twick- 
enham. The young woman was edueated im England and was more an KEn- 
glish girl in her tastes and habits than a Princess of the Bourbon- Orleans 


Queen Victoria was a helpful ally for: Carlos in winning “the nial of the 
Orleanist Princess. Carlos made a trip to England to see for himself the orig- 
inal of the beautiful photograph. Amelia was. urged by Victoria to accept 
her royal suitor, The brief courtship was gone through’'with in grand 

All England knew that the King of Portugal had come to woo the fair 
maid of Twickenham and a hearty English “God bless you” followed the 
newly married pair to Lisbon. : 

Later the King and Queen of Portugal paid a visit to their royal bene- 
factress of England and were honored guests at Windsor Castle. 

'|Queen, a Famous Swimmer, Won a 
Medal By Saving Drowning Children 

The Queen of Portugal is one of the, most gifted women in Europe. She 
was known in England, before her marriage, as a sportwoman, especially as 1 
powerful swimmer. In after years she was awarded a medal for heroism in 
saving the lives of two children who were drowning in the River Tagus. 

But intellectuality she always has shown brightest. She studied medi- 
cine and obtained the degree of. M. D., the only Queen in the world whosever 
won that distinction. Out of her private purse she maintains a hospital and 
dispensary in Lisbond and contributes largely to institutions of that nature in 
various parts of the kingdom. 

She is deeply interested in nursing as a vocation for women and used her 
own medical knowledge to advantage in dieting and doctoring her gluttonous 
husband when fife pleasures of the table began to take such a strong hold on 
him. It was sitid that he used to steal away to Paris and other places to get 
a meal to his own liking, as the Queen made him diet rigidly at home. 

Amelie was one of the first persons of prominence outside the scientific 
world to take an interest in the X-ray. 
by the X-ray process of a woman who habitually laced tightly. This photo- 
graph showed the actual deformity produced by stays drawn too tightly and 
was used by the Queen in her perpetual campaign against this feminine 

She was deeply interested in her husband’s scientific studies, especially 
oceanography, in which ne devoted much time. She was an appreciative critic 
also, of his painting, in which field he occupied a high position among the 
artists of his country. ; 

Both Carlos and Amelié were looked upon as among the most brilliant of 
European sovereigns, and both were absolutely fearless. Less than two 
mdnths ago Amelie, then in Paris, was to have made a balloon ascension, but 
Carlos heard of it and wired:: “The Queen of Portugal shall not go up ina 
balloon.” So that adventure was abandoned. 

Two sons were born to their Portuguese majesties, the late Crown Prince 
and Prince Manuel, now 18 vears old and the uccessor to the throne. The 
latter has figured in the public prints abroad ‘very li(tle and Prince Luiz onl

a son of the expatriated Prince Miguel of Portugal. His mother, now a nun, 
was a princess of Lowenstein’ Wertheim. A nephew of hers was killed in the 
Philippines in 1899, while fighting in the ranks of the insurgents against 
American troops.

and subsequently her other son, Luiz, succeeded Pedro. Don Fernando became 
a sort of dowager king, having had the title without the authority of a king

Warned That His Throne Was « 
Tottering, King Exiled His Son 

King Carlos has been between two, 
fires. He has had to contend with a 
disgruntled populace on the one hand 

and a hotheaded son, Crown Prince 
Louls. Philippe, on the other. 

The populace of Portugal has been 
bitter toward Premier Franco, who has 
been the King’s great financial prop. 
Business has been poor and taxes are 
all out of proportion to the ability of 
the people to pay, according to the popu- 
lar complaint. The institution of roy- 
alty and the administration of Premier 
Franco have peen blamed for this state 
of affairs. 

Franco, who is an able financier, has 
had to steer through a narrow channel. 
He was looked to not only to bolster 
up the revenues of the State and of the 
Crown, but to do so in a way that would 
pacify and satisfy. the people. 

Indignant at J’remier. 

He succeeded’ as far as the public 
funds were concerned, but the people 
cried out that the money for this was 
squeezed from them by adding to al- 
ready heavy ‘burdens of taxation. Their 
hatred has been bitter against the min- 
ister “dictator.”

in 1904. The original ,issue was. the 
question of the tobacco monopoly, a 
minor matter, but it caused the downfall 
of one ministry. Several ministries fol- 
lowed one another in quick succession. 
The tobacco monopoly question finally 
was disposed of, but the Cortes, the na- 
tional legislative body, was in a sfate 
of hopeless confusion. Parliamentary 
government seemed a practical impossi- 

The various premiers importuned King

: Franco's Reign Resented. 

The Cortez was adjourned sine die 
and Franco was in control. “A coup 
d’etat’’ the move was termed, and so it 
was in a sense, but the situation was 
critical and strong measures had to be 
applied. Republican ideas had grown 
up among the people. The Portuguese 
read Victor Hugo. They resented the 
idea of a ‘“‘dictator,” as Franco was 
calied. They’ had no patience with such 
radical measures on the part of the 
throne, though the avowed purpose was 
to restore orper and prosperity to Por- 

Mutterings of discontent, outiurete of 
popular rage became frequent. There 
were repubilcan uprisings and  bar- 
ricades were thrown up in the streets of 
Lisbon. The army stood with the King. 
and these fitful bursts of popular pas- 
sion were smothered ag they manifested 
themselves. 4 

But they grew more frequent. It be- 
came &@ common saying that the mon- 
archy was tottering. At this functure 
‘he Crown Prince took a had in the

Edward and the English ministers in 
behalf of her tottering throne. She is 
personally popular in England, having 
been born at Twickenham, though a 
Princess of the House of Orleans. But. 
on account of the political nature of her 
English mission, she was not given a 
very cordial welcome and feiled to ob. 
tain any assurances of English aid. 

Early in his reign, shortiy after a 
brief disagreement with England, Don

Communication From Architect to ee : 
bit Given Out After Slayer Is Acquit- 
ed on Insanity Plea. ) 



Justice Dowling’s commitment was wn- 
constitutional. If this move is unsuc- 
cessful, they will apply for a writ of 
habeas corpus and canse the appoint- 
ment of a commission to examine Thaw 
and report upon His mental condition, 

Thaw protested violently against going 
to Matteawan. He declared with all the 
force of his violent nature that his law- 
vers ought to obtain his release ai 

In Commanding Attitude. 

A long conference was held by the 
lawyers. They had all their papers 
ready to obtain a writ, but Littleton 
argued that “We had better let sleeping 
dogs sleep’ for a time. Plainly, he 
thought it better to go slow with public 

Stancing in the middle of the floor 
fwith exultation shining from every one 
of his features, Thaw, in the tone of a 
victorious general addressing a_ well 
meaning, but tardy, Neutenant, ordered 
Littleton to use all diligence in getting 
before Justice Newburger. 

Littleton promised him that he would 
go at once to the Supreme Court, but 
at the door he stopped for a word with 
a friend. Thaw watched him impatient- 
jy for a moment and then called out 

“Mr. Littleton, aren’t you going to the 
Supreme Court to get that writ?’ 

“Yes, in a moment,” said Littleton, 

“But you do not seem to be going, 
perceptibly,” said Thaw, chewing on 
his cigar stump. | 

Finally lawyer Peabody convinced 
Thaw he had better go to the asylum 
until Monday. 

Friend Leads Applause. 

When the time came to start, Thaw, 
accompanied by his wife, Dan O'Reilly, 
his attorney, and a deputy sheriff, walk- 
ed over the Bridge of Sighs to the 
Tombs. He bade good-by to all the 
prison officials and climbed into his own 
automobile, which had béen run into the 
jail yard. His wife, O'Reilly, .Lawyer 
Peabody and Deputy Sheriff Bell got 

into the car with him. Deputy Sheriff 
Bell and Detective Moore of Peabody’s 
— got on the seat with the chauf- 

' The big gates leading to Lafayette 
street were opened and the automobile 
shot out into the immense crowd. Led 
by Rafael Gascone, the Italian whom 
Thaw assisted with money and advice 
to get out of Sing Sing death house and 
finally get an acquittal on a murder 
charge, the crowd cheered until the 
buildings about rang with the echoes. 

Police Guard at Station. 
Up Lafayette street to Canal street 
fhe crowd ran after the automobile. 
When the car was lost to the crowd 
many of the pursuers ran for the near- 
set subway station to the Grand Central 
Depot. 3 

Another crowd was encountered at the 
Grand Central, where a pdlice guard 
was necessary to get Thaw to the gate 
leading to the train:: He was cheered 
there and appeared to enjoy the manli- 
festations of good will that greeted him 
on every hand. | 

Wife Weeps at Parting. 

En route | to the Grand Central Sta- 
tion, Thaw said he was very anxious 
to see the ruins of the big Parker build- 
ing, so the motor car turned into Fourth 
avenue. Continuing north on’ Fourth 
avenue, the automobile passed in the 
very shadow of that tower on which is 
perched “‘Chaste Diana,’’ who: looked 
down on the tragedy of the roof a year 
ago last July. Neither the man just de- 
clared insane nor the wife glanced at 
the garden, but seemingly were matles 
away in thought. 

The car went to the Lexington avenue 
entrance of the station and there-Mrs. 
Thaw bade her husband good- os She 
was pale, weeping. It was p at 
genuine sorrow possessed her. ” Phaw 
threw his arms around her, embraced 
her closely and -now whispered’ to her, 
now kissed her. As she was whisked 
away he said sadly: 

“That poor little girl is alone now. 
I’m more worried about her than any- 

thing else.”’ 
On the brief journey to the asylum, 

IThaw showed no anxiety as. to what 

awaited him in the prison for the in- 
sane. He spoke of his wife and again 
regretted that she was left ‘‘alone.’ 

When the verdict had been spoken 
by the foreman, Dan Moore, a clerk 
for Mr. Peabody, went to the nearest 
telephone and called up the apartments 
of the Thaw family at the Hotel Lor- 
rdine. Mrs. George Lauder Carnegie, 
Harry Thaw’s sister, answered the tele- 
phone, and to her Moore told the news. 
Mrs. William Thaw took the tranemitter 
yrom her daughter's hand and talked 
over the wire with Moore. To the clerk 
the prisoner's mother said: 

“T am very glad that Harry has been 
acquitted, but I hope, with all my heart, 
that he will not have to go to Mattea- 
wan, because I do not want such a stig- 
ma to be laid on any member of the 
Thaw family.” 

Ap Unwilling Traveler, 

It was a quick transition from the 
dingy little cell in the Tombs, which 
had been Thaw's home for more than 
eighteen months, to the white-bedded 
wards of the large asylum tucked 
away on the snow-covered § sloping 
banks of the Hudson River, # miles 
above the city. The verdict came aft 
er 2 hours of waiting, and when ev- 
eryone connected with the case had 
abandoned all hope of an agreement in 
this or any other trial. Four hours 
after Foreman Gremmels’ lips bad. 
framed the words that the jury had 
found Thaw “not guilty," Thaw, pro 
testing he was sane, was on bis way to 
Matteawan. A few minutes after night- 
full he had been received in the insfitu- 
tion under commitment papers, which 
directed his detention “until discharged 
by due course of law.”

Advises Againat 
Justice Dowling, it was 
consulted in the matter he newts 
signed his order of commitment and in- 
formally had advised Thaw’s counsel — 
against making an immediate contest. — 

until after a lively scene with his coun- 
sel and his wife, the latter pleading 
with him for more than ,eh hour to be 
content for a time at least with what 
fate had given him.

speedily will be taken looking to the —

fer to’a private institution, where

might reside with him. Thaw consent- 
ed to go without further protest. 

On his way to Matteawan, Thaw dic-— 
tated the following ‘statement: 

“IT am perfectly sane now, but I am 
going to Matteawan on the advice of 
my counsel, who thought it a little un- 
wise to sue for a writ of habeas corpus 
at this time. Counsel wil proceed in the 
matter of my release just as _800n as 
they can get together the proof they 
will present. that I am at present sane,

w-th Thaw to Matteawan. Mr. Littleton 
is understood to have talked very plain- 
ly to Thaw while the subject of suing 
out a writ of habeas corpus was under 
discussion. ‘On an exception filed by Mr. 
Littleton, Justice Dowling had 
a delay until 3 o'clock In the execution 
of the commitment papers, so that coun- 
sel might consult with the defendant. 
Mr. Littleton informed Thaw, it was 
stated, that “there is such a thing as 
public sentiment ir New York City.” . 

Littleton Worn Out. 

Mr. Littleton went neither to the sta- 
tion nor to the asylum with his clitent. 
He waa said to be well nigh worn out 
from his work during the trial. 

Thaw had no opportunity to bid his 
mother farewell. The Gourt order 

Bell was anxious to take the first train 
leading up the Hudson. Both the moth- - 
er and Evelyn Thaw will visit Mattea- — 
wan Monday, all visitors being barred 
from the institution on Sunday. J 
Daniel O’Reilly announced at Fishkill

habeas corpus is sued out in Thaw’'s be

: Indicted on a Charge of Criminal 

Assault, He Deserted His Wife) 

and Children in New York, Mar- 
ried Again Under a False Name, 
and Died in Freeport, II1. 



"The second wife, Mrs. Levingston, he married in Ontario in 1853, 

while his first wife was living with her five children in Cleveland, O. 

This second wife is now living in Freeport, Ill., a charming, white- 
_~ haired, Christian woman of 70 years. 

Dr. Rockefeller was 45 years old when he deserted his wife and 
family in Clevcland and went to Canada and, under the assumed name 
of William Levingston, married Miss Margaret L. Allen, a pretty girl 
of 20. For 50 vears she lived with him as his wife, never knowing 

until just before he died that her husband was a bigamist. Until a 

: few vears before his death she did not know that he was William A. 
Rockefeller, or that he had been indicted in New York State. Even 
now she will not say that he was William A. Rockefeller. 

“We-lived .happily together for 50 years and I shall be a true 
woman to the end,” she says. 7 


During the last 25 years of his life Dr. Rockefeller’s where- 
abouts and the existence of the other wife were known to his sons, 
John D., William and Frank Rockefeller, and to his son-in-law, 
Pierson D. Briggs of Cleveland. But no one else in all the world 
knew of it. 

The first Mrs. Rockefeller lived 34 years after he deserted her, 
and died without knowing that her husband had taken a girl of 20 
in her stead. And all the members of the Rockefeller family, ex- 
cept these four men, knew nothing of it. They did not know 
‘where the old man lived. The three sons kept him well supplied 
‘with money, but they guarded well the secret of his life and 
whereabouts. | | 
| He was first hidden on a farm in Macon County, IIl., about 
half way between Decatur and Clinton. As the country settled up 
around him he moved to Freeport, Ill., and in 1881 he moved again 
to the extreme frontier in North, Dakota, on a farm 30 miles from 

8 railroad. On this farm he spent each summer for 15 years, known 

. to his neighbors as Dr. William Levingston. Part of the time he 

x owned the farm, in his own name of William A. Rockefeller, but 

that secret was buried in the records of the County Registrar of 
Deeds, 18 miles away, and his neighbors never knew of it. 
| For two years the newspapers an@ magazines of this country 
have searched for the father of John D. Rockefeller. Ida M. Tar- 
bell began the hunt, andthe results of her quest were publishd in 
McClure’s Magazine in July, 1905. She traced the old man to 
_ Cleveland, to which city he moved with his family in 1855. She lost 
Kim there. | 
In her article in the magazine she spoke of John D. Rockefeller 

: as ‘‘the most tragic figure in the publie eye,’’ ‘‘the most important 

than in the world,’’ and ‘‘the most successful man in the world,’ 
because he had got most of what men most want—money ; and she 
gave as her reason for trying to find John D. Rockefeller’s father: 
‘‘Now a man who possesses the influence that Rockefeller does 

 eannot be allowed to live in the dark» The publie not only has the 

‘right, to know, it is the duty of the public to know who he is, 
whence he came and his origin.’’ | 

- Since the appearance of Miss Tarbell’s article in 1905 thousands 
‘of dollars have been spent im the search, but not even a trace of 

> him could be found, Some members of the Rockefeller family 

were as eager as the public. to solve the mystery of the old man’s 

| disappearance. One of them furnished Miss Tarbell a photograph 
of the elder Rockefeller, whith was published with her story in Me- 

Clure’s magazine, but the four men who knew the secret kept it so 

will get their first knowledge of the revelation from. this article. 
' . William A. Rockefeller’s bigamous marriage has been the 
skeleton in the family of the ‘‘Oil King.’’ Because of the existence 

of this second wife the secret of his whereabouts has been guarded 

he only four persons who knew it. They have been importurled 

iy Other members of the family, socially prominent in*New York. 
meveland and Chicago, to tell, but they would not say a word. 
One since his disappearance the old man visited his son, Frank 
“Rockefeller, .on his ranch in Belvidere, Kan., and spent two weeks 
Twice he has visited his son, 
D. Rockefeller; once at. his home near Cleveland, and once at 

<n home in Pontiac, N. Y. Other members of the family were ig- 

‘norant of these visits until after the old man had returned to his 

. Pe : . . 
= ‘mysterious home in the West. 

3a Last summer public interest in this mystery of the Rockefeller 
was intensified by the publication in the Post-Dispatch and 

-. York World of an interview with Frank Rockefeller, obtained 

‘Boon after the appearance of the Ida Tarbell story in McClure’s 

_ In this interview Frank Rockefeller said that his father was 

ve, that his whereabouts were a secret, and that there were 

reasons why that secret must not then be divulged. Through- 

ut the interview he denounced his brother, John D., and intimat.- 
. that his father had been unjustly dealt with. — 

| “Go ask John 1D. where our father is. Tell him that I 

an 9 I dare him to answer,” he said. | | 

_ In this interview Frank Rockefeller intimated that his 

had been ruined financially by what he called the “merciless, ashen

or neglected by-his sons. He visite 
‘them and there is evidence that they 
‘visited him in his exile. Some eight or 
ten years ago John D. Rockefeller went 
in his private car to Freeport and spent 
a night there. His father, ‘‘Dr. Leving- 
ston,’ was at his home in Freeport at 
the time, but whether the father and 
son met is not known. 

It is pretty well. known that the old 
man was secretly visited in his home 

1904, when it was thought hé was dying 
from shock, as the result of| a broken 
arm; and again in the winter and spring 
of 1906, when he was dying. well 
known, too, that the old man received 
regular remittances from Cleveland all 
through the latter years of his life, and 
that he held stock in the Standard Oil 
Co. and drew dividends, as much as 
$3000 at a time on this stock. 

The available evidence indicates that 
William A. Rockefeller, under the name 
of “‘Levingston” was well cared for by 
his.sons, but that his second wife, the 
girl he married while his first wife was 
yet living, was. never recognized in any 
way by his sons, and that efforts were 
madé to induce him to live apart’ from 
her as much as possible. 

* Following this policy the old man lived 
alone each summer during the last years 
of his I'fe on his ranch in North Dakota, 
and his wife never visited him there. 
They lived apart each summer and were 
together each winter. , 
His Life Story. , 

William A. Rockefeller moved from 
Massachusetts to Richford, N. Y., with 
his father’s family when he was 23 years 
old. In 1837 he married El'za Davison, a 
farmer’s daughter, and in 1839 their first 
child, John D. Rockefeller, was born. 
In 184 he moved with his family to 
Moravia, N. Y., and in that county 
he was indicted in 1849 on the charge 
of criminal assault. This accusation 
was indeed grave enough to supply 
the motive for Rockefellers flight and 
subsequest hiding under an as- 
sumed name. In 1850 ‘he moved 
his family, which consisted of his wife 
and five children—John D., William, 
Frank, Mary and Lucy—to Oswego, N. 
Y. Three years jater they moved to 
Strongville, O., 15 miles southwest of 
Cleveland. A year later they moved Parma, seven miles from Cleve- 
land, and in 1857 they moved to Cleve- 
land, ; 
Always a Mystery. 

He was a poor farmer, this - elder 
Rockefeller. He was rarely at home, 
and a hired ma~ did all the work of 
the farm. Everybody liked his wife, 
but few of his neighbors had acquaint- 
ance with Rockefeller. He was a great 
mystery of the country-side. The gos- 
sip of him may be heard to this day 
in all.of the many places in Which he 
lived, Returning home only at infre- 
quent intervals, his own children knew 

him not as well as they knew ma 
another man in the neighborhood. sf 

He would disappear for four or five 
months at a time. Then some morning 
he would be at home and remain there 
for a few weeks before departing for 
another season. He supported the fam- 
ily, paid the rent regularly, and when he 
returned from his trips vas well sup- 
plied with money, He was a pleasant 
but taciturn man, who shared no confi 
dences. ; 

None of the neighbors knew what his 
occupation was, nor did his own family, 

a mystery about his long absences and 
his reticence on the occasion of his in- 
frequent visits home that catised his 
neighbors to shake their heads, — 
Seme of them said that Mr. Rocke- 
feller must be in & queér business, + since 

he did hot care to Make known what 

it was.

Old “Hi’’ Odell, 8 years old, is yet 
living in Oswego, N. Y. He seid re- 
cently to @ reporter for.the Post-Dic- 

“I went to work for Bill Rockefeller 
when he lived in Moravia. I was rail- 
roading some then, but Bill he says to 
me, ‘Hi,’ he says, ‘I want you to live 
up to our house and keep an eye on

enough to manage 'em, and they need 
some managing. Do just what you 
think is right for ’em.’ ” 

Miss Tarbell’s Description. 

In her description of the father of 
John D. Rockefeller Miss Tarbell 

“It is with William.A. Rockefeller. 
father of John, that we have to do 
here. There is enough which is au- 
thentic to be gleaned about him to 
form 2 picture of a striking character. 
He was a tall and- powerful man; with 
keen, straightforward eyes, a man in 
whom strength, and fearlessness, and 
joy in life, unfettered by education 
or love of decency, ran riot.’ He 
owned a costly rifle and was famous 
as a shot. He was a daredevil with 
horses. He had all the vices save 
one—he never drank. He was a fa- 
mous trickster, too; thus, when he 
first reached Richford he is said to 
have called himself a peddler—a deaf 
and dumb peddler, and for some time 
he actually succeeded in making his 
acquaintances write out their remarks 
to him on a slate. Why he wished to 
deceive them no one knows. Perhaps 
sheer mischief, perhaps a desire to 
hear things which would hardly be 
talked before a stranger with go00d 

His Mysterious Trips. 

“It was not long after he came to 
Richford that he began to So off on 
long trips—peddling trips some said. 
Later he became known as a quack 
doctor, and his absences were sup- 
posed to be spent in selling a med- 
icine he concocted himself. Irregular 
and wild as his life undoubtedly was, 
his strength and skill and daring, his 
frankness, his careful dress, for he 
paid great attention to hig clothes, as 
well as the mystery surrounding the 
occupation which, kept him looking 
so prosperous, made him a fevyorite 
with the young and reckless, and, un- 
happily, with women. 
~ “In the Ohio communities where he 
lived the legends of ‘Old Billi,’ as he is 
popularly spoken of today, are ident- 

ical with those in New York. They P 

all remember him as a man who came 
home but rarely, who was supposed tv 
sel] some kind of medicine—a ‘cancer 
doctor’ is the opinion of one, » ‘quack 
doctor’ of another. In Ohio, as in New 

York, he always created a profound 
impression on his visits home, by his 
clothes, his good horse, and his crack 

“He was a rippin’ good one,” an old 
associate in Parma declares. }!°'v he 
would shoot-bang-e-tee-bang—you'd ‘a’ 
thought there was a whole army 
around. " 

These same habits were with old man 
Rockefeller to the end .i his days. He 
never gave up his ‘‘quack doctoring,”’ 
his roving, his fine horses, his shooting 
or his love of the fields. 

Upon his trips away from home Wil- 
liam Ai Rockefeller went under an as- 
sumed name, Whether this was because 
of the indictment against him in Cayuga 
County, N. Y., or to cover up his rela- 
tions with women, is not known; but 
it is known that upon one of his “med- 
ical’ trips into Ontario, Canada, in the 
50's, he appeared at Burford and Nor. 
wich under the name of “Dr. William 
Levingston.” This has been learned 
by a reporter for the Post-Dispatch. 
This, and the other trips of the elder 
Rockefeller into Canada were referred 
to in an interview given out in 190, 
soon after the publication of the Tarbell 
story. The interview was given by the 
manager of John D. Rockefeller’s es- 
tate in Pocantico, and was understood 
to be authorized by John w». himself. 
In the course of the interview the man- 
ager was asked: , 

“Are you acquainted with Mr. Rocke- 
feller’s father?’ 

An Authorized Statement. 

“Indeed I am,’’ he answered. “He was 
here about a@ year ago. A recent maga- 
zine story refers to him as who 
associated with horse thieves up at Mo- 
rayla, and who used to absent himself 
from home for long periods and return 
with plenty of money. I know that he 
used to £0 away, and I know why. 
He had a farm which would never yield 
any profit, so he went over to Canada, 
bought up a lot of fine timber, walnut 
and ash, sent it to the mills and sold 
it at a handsome pront. sie repeated 
this’ often until finally he devoted al! 
of his time to the lumber business an:! 
made a small fortune. The old man is 
vow living quietly on a ranch in the 
northwest. | 



On one of these trips “Dr. William 
Levingston” met Miss Margaret L. Allen, 
the daughter of a Canadian farmer. 

Persons in the neighborhood of Nor- 
wich, who remember her deseribe- her 
as a pretty and charming girl. She was 
only 2 years old. “Dr. Levingston” was

Sister Tclis of Marriage. 

Mrs. Loessing of Norwich, Ont., a sis- 
ter of Misa Allen, tells this story of the 
marriage of “Dr. Levingston:’’ 

“He married my sister after two or 
three years’ acquaintance and after their 
matriage he visited her here about: once 
a year for a number of years. He was 

everybody. He was a famous marksman 
and loved to hunt. He was fond of a 
good story. mF 

“From here they nioved to Phfladel- 
phia and ther lived ona farm in Iii- 
hols. Afterward he sold h’s farm and 
lived a retired life ‘in Freeport, I1.’’ 

Bought Farm in Illinois. 

Dr. Levingston and his young wife 
first appeared in the West in 183/. The 

registry of decds of Macon County, IIL, 
show that April 18, 1867, William = A, 
Barnes and wife sold to Mrs. Margaret 

L. Allen Levingston for $2400 a. farm of 
160 acres five miles east of Maroa,in that 
county. Dr. and Mrs. Levingston 

moved on the farm and lived there three 
years. | 

The records show that Oct. 2%, 186% 
William Levingston and his wife, Mar- 
garet L. Allen Levingston, old the 
farm to S. M. Currier for $6900, a profit 
of $4590 in two years. Mr. Currier paid 
$1900. in cash and gavé a mortgage for 
$5000 at 10 per cent’ interest. 

The Levingstons ere well remembered 
by the older residents of Maroa and 
Deeatur, among them Dr. W. A. Barnes 
of Decatur. They all deseribe him as a 
jolly, good-natured man, who spent most 
of his time hunting. 

“He didn’t do nothing but hunt, and 
when he got out in the fields with them 
guns of hisn you’ée a .thought a whole 
battery was agoing off,” one of his 
old neighbors said. 

They all describe him as exactly the 
kind of a jolly, roving, shooting man 
told of by Ida Tarbell, and when the 
picture of William A. Rockefeller ap- 
peared in McClure’s magazine al! of the 
old folks around Maroa recognized it 
as the perfect likeness of Dr. Leving- 

After the Levingstons sold the farm 
to Currier they boarded with him for 

a year and then moved to Princeton, 
Ill., and lived two years, and then they 
moved to Freeport, Iil., and Mrs. Lev- 
ingstbn bought a small brick cottage 
there across the street from her brother.

Would Disappear for Months. 

In Freeport Dr. Levingston was the 
same roving, mysterious person he had 
been in New York end in Ohio. He 
was.seldom at home. He would be gone 
for months and come back w'th a great 
roll of money which he would display. 
He would go to smail towns and put up 
at a hotel for a week or so, getting out 
hand bills advertising himself as ‘“The 
Celebrated, Dr. Levingston.” He ad- 
vertised to cure anything, but made a 
specialty of cancer and kidney troubles. 

Among ‘those: who knew Dr. Levingston 
well in Freeport was G. F. Swartz, a 
druggist. He has yet in an Old book, 
yellow with age, the prescription he 
used to fill for Dr. Levingston. It is as

Mr. "Bidwell, president of & bank in

“Tl knew him well. He used to keep

go hunting with him. He was the best

in all his life, but he had this fine hunt-

that was a great. joke, 

“Miss Tarbell deseribed him exactiy

His Trips Northward. 

From Freeport. Dr. Levingston went 
upon trips into the frentie® country as 
far north as the Canadian border line 
in *the Red River Valley and in tie 
country. around Devil's Lake, North 
Dakota. This was a country suited co 
his nature-loving chafacter. Game was 
plentiful... o4 "Seer 

Dr.C Levingston took his battery of 
shotguns with him on these trips and 
spent as much time shooting as he did 
selling medicine. 


The deeds on record in Grafton. coun- 
ty seat of Walsh County, N. D., furnish 
the positive documentary proof that 
Dr. William Leyingston and Dr. Wil- 
Ham A. Rockefeller ‘were one and the 

same person... .. aly. ee 
Among those records is the deed from 
the United Statea Government to Dr. 
William Levingston to the northwest 
quarter of section 27, township 157, the 
claim he homesteaded. 
He*must havé told hig relatives in 
Cleveland about. the ddeal spot which 
he had discovered on the Western 
frontier, for in 1883 he bought anotarr 
quarter section adjoining his. This was 
the southeast quarter of section 28, 
which had been homesteaded by Donald 
Ross. Dr.. Levingston bought it from 
him for $1800, as the deed shows. ~ 
.-Mr. Ross says the money was paid hiin 
by Dr. Levingston, but the land wes 
not deeded to him but to his son-in- 
law, Pierson W. Briggs of Cleveland, 
O. Briggs was at that time purchasing 
agent of the Standard Oi) Co. in Clevé- 
land. Years before he had married 
Lucy Rockefeller, sister of John D. 
Rockefeller, and eldest daughter of 
Dr. William A. Rockefeller, alias Dr. 
William Levingston. She died in 1876 
and Mr. Briggs had married again. 
Deed Still on Record. | & 
The deed conveying the quarte? sec- 
tion from Donald Ross to Mr. Briggs 
and his wife, Laura E. Briggs, was filed 
for record Nov. 21, 1883, and is yet on 
record. A strip of this land was deeded 
a@ year later by Briggs to the railway 
company for a right of way. 
There are men in North Dakota who 
declare that it was. really John D. 
Rockefeller who owned this land and 
that it was put into the name of his 
brother-in-law, Briggs, as a blind, and 
that John D. knew when he bought it 
that the railroad was to be extended 
and that his influence obtained the loca- 
tien of the Park River townsite on it 

of it. At any rate, the money for it 
went to Briggs in Cleveland. 

What the Deeds Show. 
Another deed, recorded Nov. 15, 1884, 
shows that John Ross conveyed to Pier- 
son D. Briggs and wife a third quarter 
eof the section, the price being $2900. 
Thus, in 18%, Mr. Briggs owned three 
adjoining quarter sections, the one he 
had bought from his father-in-law, Dr. 
Willlam A. Rockefeller, alias Dr. Wil- 
liam Levingston, for $2000; the one from 
Donald Ross for $1900, and the one from 
John» Ross for $2000, a total purchase 
price of $670. 

July 26, 1886, these three quarter 
sections, of 480 acres, were conveyed 
by Pierson D. Briggs and wife to Wii- 
liam A. Reckefeller, bis father-in-law. 
The three deeds were fled for record 
the annie day, July 26, 18986, and the 
price named ia the deeds was $10,090 
for the three tracts.

By a Staff Correspondent of the Post-Dispatch. 

CLEVELAND, 0O., Feb. 1.--Pierson D. Briggs, brother-in-law of John 
D. Rockefeller, lives at 6530 Euclid avenue. When he sold the ranch in 
Park River, N. D., to his father-in-law, William A. Rockefeller, Mr. Briggs 
was purchasing agent of the Standard Oi] Co. and the confidential agent 
of John D. Now he is retired froni active business. | 

He is old and white-haired and ig confined to the house most of the 
time with an affliction of the liver. He is a courteous, mild-mannered old 
gentleman. He received the reporter for the Post-Dispatch in the parlor 
of his home today, and when he was questioned about the ranch in North 
Dakota he said: 

“Yes, I did own a farm in Park River, N. D., but I don’t own it now. 
I sold it.” 
-. “Was the William A. Rockefeller to whom you sold it your father- 
in-law?” he was asked. 

“I don’t know. It was a long time ago. I wanted to sell it. A man 
named Rockefeller came along and bought it. He did not pay for. it, or. 
something, and I took it back. That’s all there was to the transaction.” 


“But the deed of sale on record shows that you did receive $10,000 for 
the farm when you sold it to William A. Rockefeller.” 

“Does it? Well, well; maybe that’s true. At any rate, it was a 
time ago.” 
- “The William A. Rockefeller to whom you sold the ranch was not 
your brother-in-law, William A. Rockefeller of New York, was he?” 

“No, no. His name is not William A. It is just William, He had 
nothing to do with it.” ) 

“It was, in fact, your father-in-law, William A. Rockefeller, who lived 
on the farm under the flame of’ Dr. William Levingston, was it not?” 

“Well, now, as to that I cannot say. You see, I did not really own the 

ranch myself, although it was in my name. I was acting for someone else 
in the whole transaction.” 

“You were acting for John D. Rockefeller, were you not 

“Really, I am not at liberty now to discuss the matter. It was a pri- 
vate business matter, and it was very long ago.” 


“Will you say it was not your father-in-law, William A. Rockefeller, 
who lived there under the name of Dr. William Levingston, but who 
bought the farm from you under his right name?” 

“Really, I don’t know as to that. How badly it snows outside. It’s a 
real northeaster, isn’t it?” 

Mr, Briggs was asked if he knew his father-in-law, Mr. Rockefeller, 
very well. © 

“Oh, yes, yes, I knew him well, very well, forty or fifty years ago. 
Yes, indeed. He was a fine old gentleman.” 

The tio photographs of Dr. Levingston. which appear in the Post- 
Dispatch were shown to Mr. Briggs. He held them a long time, looking at 
them, without speaking. Then he handed them back, 

“Are those pictures of your father-in-law, William A, Rockefeller?” 
he was asked. 

“Really, it has*been so long ago,” he answered. “I would not recognize 
his picture now if I saw it.” 

“Were you ever at Park River, N. D.?” 

“Yes, I was out there three days when I last sold the farm.” 

“Did you see Dr. Levingston then?” 

“No, he was not then on the ranch. He was down at his home in 
Freeport. I saw only the boy in charge of the place and the real 
estate man. I sold it to Robert Arnott. But, as I told you, I was 
acting for another.” 

“Didn’t you‘ know, Mr. Briggs, when, you sold the farm to William 
A. Rockefeller and bought it from him again, that it was your father- 

in-law ?” ‘ 
“Really, six, you must excuse me from talking of business matters. 
My Fm sae has forbidden me-to even think of business.” 
hereafter Mr. Briggs talked entertainingly of the elevator he had 
built in his home, the only elevator in a private house in Cleveland, 
and of how handy it was for him and his invalid wife, but ;he would 
say nothing more about -his _ father-in-law. a

During the last eight years of his life 
Dr. Levingston was too fat and un- 
wieldy and infirm to live much upon

spent quietly with his wife in his home

Mr. Mayer says ‘of this incident: 

“Dr. Levingston -told me then that 
the draft for $3000 was a dividend on 
Standard Oil stock which he owned. 
Knowing that Standard Oil stock was 
teo rare a thing for many to own, I 
Was amazed, and asked him where he 
got it. He said that he lived in Ohio 
when John D. Rockefeller was a young 
man just starting in the oil business, 
and that he knew Him very well... He 
said that John D. came to him one day 
and begged him to buy some Standard 
Oil stock, but he refused. Young Rocke- 
feller then begged him to lend him some 
money on the stock. He did so and had 
drawn dividends on it ever since.” 

Dr. Levingston teld the same story 
to make money fast and | to the banker in Park River. 
At one time Dr. Levingston had de- 
posited for a year in the First Na- 
tional bank in Park River the dia- 
mond which he had worn nearly all 
his life in his shirt bosom. That dia- 
mond was a conspicuous characterist- 
ic of the old gentleman. It shows

“Dr. ‘Levingston was the oldest man in Freeport, having reached his 
ninety-sixth year. He was born in New York in 1810. He studied medi-

Pennsylvania, where he practiced medicine for many years. Having vis- 
ited Illinois in 1857; he decided after the war to make the west his home,

burial. But no request was ever made 
for it, and today the grave is un- 
marked. The widow, honorable and 
Christian spirited in all things, will 
naj place a lie upon his grave. « 

His will was very brief. It simply 
bequeathed all property to the widow, 
Mrs. Margaret L. Allen Levingston. 

Birth Date Undisputed. 

It has been established by previous 
investigators that William A. Rockefel- 
ler was born Nov. 13, 1810. That has 

been proven by family records not dis- 
puted er denied by any member of the 
Rockefeller. family. Upon the back of a 
photograph of Dr. William Levingston, 
sent by Mrs. Levingston to her friend, 
Mrs. C. M. Currier of Maroa, Ill, shert- 
ly after his death, is this inscription 
in her own handwriting: 

“Dr. Wiliam Levingston, born Nov. 
1810; died May 11, 1906, aged 96 years 
months 28 days.’’ 

Upon the back of a kodak picture of 

which he improved and beautified to 

the fullest extent with suitable build-

The place was ideal for one who 

loved, as he did, the open air sports 

and recreation of shooting, fishing 

and the like. He had lived in Free- 

port for the last 3% years.” 
Deception Even in Death. 

Mystery and deception even in the 
notice of his death. Not a word there 
of his farm or his farm life in North 
Dakota, because there was to be found 
the key to his life’s mystery.. A vague, 
deceptive, brie’ netice of so long a 
life, the wording chosen with careful 
cunning to hide the secret of the man’s 
double life. *

From his farm in North Daketa Dr. 
William Levingston went occasionally 
to visit his sons. These visits were 
made secretly and were unknewn even 
to his wife in Freeport. She never 
knew until after his death that he had 
ever visited his sons. The first of these 
trips of which the Post-Dispatch has 
knowledge was made 22 years ago. It 
was to visit his son, Frank Rockefellcr, 
on his fanth In Belvidere, Kan. The 
manager of the Kansas ranch then, as 
now, Was Herman Huber, an old Ger- 
man who had worked years ago for 
the Rockefellers in Ohio. .Huber said 
to a reporter for the Post-Dispatch: 

“The only time I ever saw Frank 
Rockefeller’s father was 22 years ago, 
when he came here to visit with Frank 
and to hunt quail and prairie chickens. 
He stayed two weeks and I hunted with 
him. He was a fine old fellow. jolly

This disposal of the guns is corrobo- 
rated by other circumstances. In the 
summer of 1906, after Dr. Levingston’s 
death, Mr. Bidwe.., the banker of 
Freeport, .asked mrs. Levingston what 
became of the old man’s guns. She an- 
swered: “He gave them away before 
he died.”’ 

From another source of most positive 
authenticity, which the Post-Dispatch is 
not at liberty to reveal, it was learned 
that the guns were given by the old 
man to Frank Rockefeller shortly be- 
fore he died. : 

In the summer of 1902 Dr. Rockefeller, 
alias Levingston,, visited his son, John

cients call it, was kept strictly quiet. 
The Cleveland newspapers were in the 
dark, and only the invted guests were 
in the secret. 

All stories agree as to “Doc” Rocke-

this reunion. 

He had grown immensely stout and 
he told his old pals that “his feet 
were bothering him.” But he was the 
Same man. Profane, independent and 
jovial, his wit was as keen as ever, 
and he poured out stories old and new 
until the Strongville men gréw tired 
of laughing. : 

When his old friends bade him good- 
bye, however, they had learned abso- 
lutely nothing of his life and had no 
clew to his place of secret residence. 

Only one of the. guests had the ceur- 
age to put the question squarely. “Say, 
‘Doc,’ where are you living now?" 

And Reckefeller's answer, ‘emphasized 
by a wink and a leer, was. typical of 
the strange man. 

“Well, my boy,” he replied, “I’ve becn

pointing northwest with a sweep of his 
ponderous arm, “and let me tell you 
that the lake is check full of shirt-tail 
swans, worth $ apiece in the New. York

“Defender of Corruption.” 

‘We -attack only the corrupt men of 
wealth, who find in the purchased 
newspapers the most effective defender

‘‘The controlled. newspapers are usu-

notorious railroad combinations, but 
they also defend the individuals and 
eorporations of great wealth that have 
been guilty of wrongdoing. 

“Tt is equally rarely that the men 
responsible for wrongdoing themselves 
speak. Normally they hire others to 
do their bidding or find others who will 
do it “without hire.”

four pages. The rest of the circular is 
made up of extracts of newspapers to 
the same effect. The President's only 
purpose in annexing this circular to his

caught fire at 9:30 o'clock last night. 
They seized their haggage and. disap- 
peared in the excitement, and up to 
midnight had not returned. 

Thg blaze, which was in the bathroom, 
Was caused by an attempt to thaw a 
frozen water pipe by burning paper 
around it. The Ww occupants of the 
place scampered into the street. The 
damage was only $25, according to the

Assistant House Clerk, 

Indicted As Accessory 

to Bribery, Tells New Orleans Police 
He {s Not Guilty. 

Application for a requisition for Dan- 
iel E. Naughton, Assistant Clerk of the 
House of Delegates, now under arrest 

in New Orleans, following his indict- 
ment as an accessory after the fact of 
bribery, was maliled yesterday to Gov. 
Folk for his signature. As s00n as 
signed by Gov. Folk, the _ requisition 
will be forwarded by mail to Gov. New- 
ton Blanchard ef Louisiana, with the 
request that Naughton be delivered into 
the custody of Detective Patrick Cahill. 
Detective Cahill, who has been detailed 
to return Naughton to 8t. Louis, de- 
parted for New Orleans at '&:10 o'clock 
last evening, on an UHlinole Central 
train. He is due to arrive in New Or- 
leans at 2 p. m. today. oe 
Special dispatches received by the 
Post-Dispatch from New Orleans state 
that seven summonses for Naughton’s 
appearance before the gran’ jury were 
found in his pocket when he was 
searched at a pwlice station. 

Seems to Be Worried. 

Naughton declared that there was 
nothing to the charge on which he was 
indicted, but seemed to be worried. He 
‘told the New Orleans police that he had) 
intended to start for St. Louis last 
night. He was willing to return, he 
said, but at the same time inquired 
concerning the methods of obtaining a 
writ of habeas corpus in the courts of 
Naughton explained that when be left 
. St. Louls he had a leave of absence 
good until last Sunday, and that before 
its expiration he obtained an extension 
for 14 days. This was the renewal of 
Naughton’s leave granted by Speaker 
Conran and made the subject of a pro- 
test by Delegate Dwight Davis at last 
Tuesday's meeting of the House of Del. 
egates. i 
Since his disappearance front St. Louis 
Naughton has been making a book at 
the racetrack in New Orleans. One of 
his friends has said that Naughton bas 
received $10 a day for his services at 
the racetrack. 

City Pays His Salary. 
He also will get: his salary—$is0—as 
ossistant clerk of the House of Dete- 
Saces for the month of January. 
The indietment of Naughton was th 
‘ast act of the December grrod jury. 
Naughton is charged with being an ar- 
cessory after the fact of bribery on the 
part of Delegates Fred W. Priesmeyer 

and Ferd Warner. The indictmerit was 

not made public, but la caplas was is- 
sued for Naughton. 

It is probable that the indictment will 
accuse Naughton of having received 
from a person or persons unknown to 
the grand jury the five $100 bills alleged 
to have been paid to Delegate Pries- 
meyer by Henry Ascher at the direction 
of Delegate Warner, and that he in 
turn gave them to Sam Weisman. a 
tailor, of 1314 Olive street. 

Naughton steadfastly refused to tell 
either the October or December grand 
jury where he got this money. His ex- 
cuse has been that hig testimony on that 
point might incriminate him. 

His Word Is Taken. 

Taking his word that his connection 
with the money was criminal, the grand 
jury, it is said, resolved to indict Naugh- 

Naughton’s absence from 8t. Louis. 
while he was in request as a witness 
both before the grand jury and at the 
trial of Priesmeyer and Warner, ts said 
to have angered the grand jurors, who 
were satisfied that Naughton’s knowl- 
edge of various transactions in the 
House of Delegates could have beeh 
made the basis of additional indictments 
if he could have been compelled to tes- 

Circuit Attorney Sager has all along 
been eager to have Naughton indicted, 
but in his arguments to induce the 
Court: to force-the witness to answer 
questions he took the position that 
Naughton, in transferring the $100 bills 
to Sam Weisman, had not committed 
any offense. 

After reviewing the whole situation 
carefully, the Circuit Attorney is said 
to have found a peg on which to hang 
‘an indictment: 

Salary In Stowed Away. 

Safely stowed away in the vault in

$51 500 DEFICIT 


His Activity for Taft Causes 
Opposition to Reim-: 

By a Staff Correspondent of the Post- 
WASHINGTON, Feb. 1.—The activity 
of Thomas J. Akins, Subtreasurer at St. 
Louis, behalf of Secretary Taft's 
presidential candidacy, is likely to cost 
him $61,500. This is the amount of the 
shortage in his office, which caused the 
trial and acquittal of D. P: Dyer Jr., a 

Subtreasury teller. 

Senator Warner, who introduced a bill 
at the beginning of the present session 
to reimburse Mr. Akins for the shortage, 
was informed by members of the Senate 
Committee on Claims, to which the pill 
was referred, that it probably would die 
in the committee. 


No Demand, They Say. 

The Senator asked when the bill would 
be reported. -He was told that there 
seemed to be no demand for a report, 
and members of the committee did no 
see why one should be made, either 
favorable or adverse to the measure. 

News has reached Washington of Mr. 
Akins’ speech at Lancaster, Mo., which 
was followed by the election of two 
Taft men as delegates to the National 
Convention from the. First Missouri 
Congressional District. Coupled with it 
was the story that other Federal ap- 
pointees in St. Louis, with the excep- 
tion of Postmaster Wyman, 
working for Mr. Taft. 

Opportunity to Inquire. 

The anti-Taft senators want to know 
why this is allowed, in view of Presi. 
dent Roosevelt's order forbidding his 
appointees to take a hand in politics. 
They look upon the Akins relief bill as 
affording a good opportunity for an jn- 
quiry and for that reason are holding 
the bill in committee. 

If there is any demand for its passage 
they will make a counter demand for an 
explanation of Mr. Akins’ Taft activity.

Few People Know How Useful It Is Ia 
Preserving Health and Beauty. 

Costs Nothing To Try. 
Nearly everybody knows that char- 
coal is the safest and most efficient 
disinfectant and purifier in nature, but 
few realize its value when taken into 
the human system for the same cleans- 

ing purpose. 
Charcoal is a remedy that the more 
you take of it the better; it is not a 
drug at all, but simply absorbs the 

| gases and impurities always present 

in the stomach and intestines and car- 
ries them out of the system. 

Charcoal sweetens the breath after 
smoking; drinking or after eating on- 
ions and other odorous vegetables. 

Charcoal effectually clears and im- 
proves the complexion, it whitens the 
teeth and further acts as a natural and 
eminently safe cathartic. 

It absorbs the injurious gases which 
collect in the stomach and bowels; it 
disinfects the mouth and throat from 
the poison of tatarrh. 

All druggists sell charcoal in one 
form or another, but probably the best 
charcoal and the most for the money 
‘is in Stuart’s Charcoa] Lozenges; they 
are composed of the finest powdered 
Willow, charcoal, and other harmless 
antiseptics in tablet form or rather in 
the form of large pleasant tasting loz- 
enges, the charcoal being mixed with 

The daily use of these lozenges will 
soon tell in a much improved condi- 
tion of the general health, better com- 
plexion, sweeter breath and purer blood, 
and the beauty of it is that no possi- 
able harm can result from their con- 
tinued use, but, on the contrary, great 
benefit. : 

A Buffalo physician, in speaking of 
the benefits of charcoal, says: “T ad- 
vise Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges to all 
patients suffering from gas in stomach 
and bowels, and to*clear the complexion 
and purify the breath, mouth and 
throat; I also believe the liver is great.

Indiana Couple Have Second Cere-

in the Names. 

After experiencing many difficulties, Ray 
Elmore and Miss Lela A. Rice, both 
well-known people of Frankfort, Ind., 
were pronounced husband and wife by 
Mavistrate Edward O'Connor jin the 
County Clerk's office. 

Elmore, according to the certifieate, 
had the peculiar experience of being 
married to his father-in-law, Harvey A: 
Rice, a real estate dealer of Frankfort, 
Ind. Ie 
.The couple, accompanied by the girl's 
father, went to Magistrate O'Connor's 
office at Center and Jefferson streets 
aml told the Squire that they wanted to 
get married. The Squire was obliging 
and all entered the County Clerk's of- 
fice, where the license was secured. 

Deputy Cierk C. L. Koop made a mis- 
take and entered the father’s name, H. 
A. Rice. where the daughter's should 
have been. ° The bride-to-be and her 
futuré husband stood before the Magis- 
trate and were pronounced husband and 
wife. But no sooner had the last words 
been spoken when it was discovered 
that the father-in-law's name had been 
inserted on the certificate. The cer- 
tificate was immediately changed and 
the coupie were married a second time, 
The wedding was delayed one day to se- 
cure written consent of the parents, 
both being minors.

Trimming of Young Loughery at Phil- 
adelphia Makes Atlantic Folk Sit 
Up—Coulon Clinehes Claim 

to Bantam Title. 


(The Veteran Referee.) 

CHICAGO, Feb. 1. 

HENEVER an Eastern boxer aspires to first-class pugilis- 
tie honors it is taken for. granted by the Eastern press 
and the Eastern followers of the game that he is the 

goods, but when a Westerner aspires for the same honors, regard- 

‘less of past performances, they want to be shown. 

It is the same old story—a fighter, irrespective of his abilities 
and his class A Western reputation, is not a fighter in their eycs 
ainless he bears the New York or Eastern trademark. 

. That is why Packey McFarland, the

heads of Tommy Murphy and Bert 

eyes. In Philadelphia Young Erne and 
oung Loughery were unbeatable and 
t pair in the East to draw to. 
@ in the West gave the quartet all 
he credit aque them. We knew , they 
tough propositions and as McFar- 
practically was a beginner with 
imited experience, we feared his meet-

tkey; however, was confident he

mert Keyes look like a novice in_their

@n Tuesday night and everybody with 

@N ounce of sporting blood in his veins 

. with the price crowded into the 

r to be “shown.’’. And, according to 

26 press-accounts of the affair, Packey 

"Shnowed” them. The distance, six 

Sunds, was too short for the local lad, 

i besides he was not accustomed to

Schaefer and Sutton Can

in One Night. 



‘pecial to the Post-Dispatch. 

CHICAGO, Ill, Feb. L—If George Sut- 
ton so wills it, Hoppe will have to play 
for the title of 18.2 biliiard champion 

the night after he finishes his 18.1 match 
with Jake Schaefer, which wonld great- 
ly handicap Hoppe, who would have no 
opportunity for practice for the 18.2 

This important point was brought to 
the attenuon of the loca] critics today 
after a careful reading of the rules, 
which show that, according to their in- 
terpretation, the regulations provide 
that the games be piayed within sixty 
days after the acceptance of the chal- 

‘Hoppe plays Schaefer first, and, as 
he also took on Sutton at about the 
same time he did Schaefer, this makes 
it possible for Sutton to set the date 
in close proximity to the Schaefer match 
—the next day if he so-wishes. Wheth- 
er or not he will taxe this advantage is 
not known, but the local critics bring it 
out ‘as a good point worthy of discus- 

The next championsni games—that 
between Schaefer and oppe at 18.1, 
and the match of the 18.2 championship 
between Sutton and Hoppe—undoubted- 
lv will be played at Orchestra Hal] in 
‘hicago. Hoppe challenged for both tit- 
les before the eastern games were play- 
ed and both Sutton and Schaefer have 
covered his forfeits. As Schaefer was 
the first to accept, he, according to the 
rules, will have to play first.

Although both “Heine’’ Schlenk and 
Julies Schmitt, the leaders in the indi- 

ment, went down to defeat in matches 
on the Palace al'eys yesterday after- 
noon, no high scores were recorded. The 
reason of the reversal in form shown 
by some of the bowlers and the low 
scores was that brand-new pins were 
used, replacing those the men have 
been shooting : sainst since the tourna- 
ment opened. 

George ‘Rudolph of the Palace team 
did the unexpected when he registered 
the high avgrage of the afternoon, 
19093-7, and won four out of seven games 
from Jules Schmitt, captain of the Pa}]- 
ace five. Schmitt was not bowling in 
form and made a number of errors on 
single pins. Rudolph won the first, third, 
fourth and sixth games, but lost the 
fifth on the foll-off, after tieing at 17s. 
Schmitt won the final game by four 
pins, 208 to 206. 

Sanders Also a Victor. 

While Schmitt was losing on No. 5 and 
6 alléys, Homer Sanders of thé De Soto 
Stars was trimming ‘‘Heine’’ Schlenk 
on No. 1 and 2 alleys. Sanders aver- 
aged but 161 3-7 to Schlenk’s 169 4-7, but 
won faur out of seven games, taking 
the third, fourth, fifth and sixth games. 
Schlenk, after starting off with a 201 
game, dropped to 134 in his second. 

Emil Masson shot against Gus 
Schmitt on No. 1 and 2 alleys and won 
five out fo seven games. Gus _ started 
off like a sure winner, getting 193 pins 
in the opening game, only to fall down 
to 139 in the second. Masson won the 
second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth 
games. . 

Martin Kern gave Billy Barron a 
harder match than was expected, Rar- 
ron winning four games. Barron start- 
ed out well, taking the first three and 
also the sixth game. Barron’s average 

But eight of the 56 games rolled were 
above the 200 mark, which is something 
unusual for the individual tournament 
In fact the scores recorded yesterday 
were the poorest, taken as a whole, on 
any day since the tournament opened. 

Look for G Match, 

Al. Jelligon and Charley Stokes, both 
of the De Soto Stars, are expected to 
furnish the best match on the De Soto 
alieys this afternoon. Al! four matches 
will be shot at brand-new pins and 
small scores may also be expected 
Schlenk still retains the lead in the 
tournament, with Jules Schmitt second

T. LOUIS, New York, Philadelphia and Cleveland are the four

one expects Washington or Boston to win the pennant and no

knows what the other four clubs are likely to do. 

cities of 
and Chi 

If a guessing contest could be taken of the ball fans in all the 

the circuit as to the probable finish in the league race this 
season, it is safe to say that nine out of every ten would place 
o in the first division and ‘an equal percentage 

would shove Washington and Boston to the lower half. 

But on St. Louis, Cleveland, New York and Philadelphia, the. 
votes would very likely be about equal in placing these teams in the 
first and second divisions. They are the four guesses of the race and 
it would be hard to predict what any one of them will do. 

Here in St. Louis we have it all fig- 
ured out that if Dineen, Howell, Pelty 
and Powell, the four leading twirlers, 
can but keep in perfect. condition and 

‘pitch something like the ball they have 

in the past seasons, St. Louis is going 
to be scrapping with the top clubs all 
‘the way over the five months’ route. 

In Cleveland they are figuring that if 
Brad@ley, Turner, Lajoie and Flick can 
- come back to old-time form and hit the 
‘ball as they once did, the Naps will be 
right at the top round of the ladder all 
the time. 

Down in New York the fans are see> 
ing the most wonderful visions of vie> 
tories with Chesbro and Orth once more 
the premier pitchers and Fred Glade, the 
speedy one, formerly of the Browns, 
winning about .900 per cent of his games, 
while they imagine Niles’ batting about 
.850 and: stealing fifty or sixty bases. 
In Philadelphia they are all wondering 
if Rube Waddell will return and fan 
‘em out aS he formely did, which, with 
the assured good pitching of “Eddie 
Plank’ and the sure hitting’ of. Harry

a pretty strong chance of being one 
of the two to nestle in the setond di-

the Browns to pull themselves up and 
Etsep a firm hold on a first division’ 

EW YORK h: hasn't much but 
hopes and the fans there will 
find that out before the season 

is six weeks gone. Philadelphia 
looks too old and stiff and only phe- 
nomenal pitching by Rube Waddell 
will keep it on the surface. 

But Cleveland slumped terribly last 
fall and so far, it seems, Manager La 
Joie has made no effort to strength- 
en the team for the coming season. 
The Cleveland bunch has been within 
touching distance of the champion- 
ship so long and always failed, that 
now her players are likely to be hope- 
less and indifferent it in their play. 

O far things | have been giisten- 
ing up in Chicago. Comiskey has 
a splendid opportunity to walk 

away with the pennant next season, but 
he will have to have better control of 
one or two of his pitchers to make 
good. Both Nick Altrock and Frank 
Owen threw him down last season, and 
it cost him the pennant which might 
have been’ won. very easily had the 
faithful pitchers, Walsh, White and 
Smith, had but a little help when their 
overworked - arms played out. 

-Detroit. will be watched more closely 
than all of them next season. ‘There 
has been a deal of winter s speculation 
going on as tb whether “Wiid Bill’ 
Donovan will come back next season 
and do such phenomenal pitching. He 
may have one.more good year, but it 
je 10 to 1 it will not. be as good as last. 

There is also a lot of ‘talk about Ty 
the. young slugger. He js stti] 
‘so young that his re eputation has not 
been firmly establishe He looks - like 
the best thing that has hit the big 
leagues in many seasons, but he has to 
keep it up for at least one more sea- 
‘gon beforé he can be declared such. 

However, Detroit is not likely to tum- 
ble badly next season. But when it 
comes to winning the pennant there are 

lot of fans who wouldn't bet a nickie 
against a dollar en the Tigers.

The publication in last Sunday's 
Post-Dispatch of the plan to bring 
the New Zealand Rugby football ff- 
teen to this city for a game while the 
team is en route home via.San Fran- 
cisco, has aroused much local interest. 

Both the Post-Dispatch and oa 
exander Murray have received many 
letters from old Rugby players tend- 
ering their services in case the game 
is secured, Two men now residing in 
St. Louts wrote that that they had op- 
posed the “All-Blacks” on their tour 
éf Great Britain and _ Ireland tww 
years ago and claimed familiarity 
with the Antipodeans’ style of play, 

which swept, the best fifteens John 
Bull had before them. in an unbroken

r. Murray has written A. H. Bask- 
erville, the secretary of the New 
Zealand club, of the suggestion for a 
match aud pointing out the clemency 

of the St. Louis winter weather which 
would permit a Rugby game here, 
whereas in Chicago it would be an im- 
possibility in February.

Ellison Entry Wins City Park 
Feature Event in Handy 
Fashion, . 



Cesarion Colt Takes’ the 
Opener in Easy Fashion 
From Gloriole. 

Special to the Post-Dispatch. 

NEW ORLEANS, Feb. 1.—With 
steady stride Temaceo, the sturdy bay 
colt by Macy, -plodded twice around 
the City Park track this afternoon 
and won the Heaslip éup, at two 
miles. His powerful lungs and strong 
legs proved too much for his three 
opponents, and he galloped them leg 
weary long before the end of the 
contest, and won romping, pulling 

hard on the bit. The race was worth 
$1800 to the winner, 

Temaceo’s victory was an excellent 
one in spite of the early loss of Red 
(fjauntlet’s jockey. Red Gauntlet was 

macedo’s chief opponent, 

umfiled in a soft spot soon 

after the halk mile and Powers rode 

out of tHe.sad@le. The horse then 
ran away four miles.

Temaceo won so easily, however, 
that trainers said he would have beat-

Will Form Curtain Raiser for 
Amateur Championship at 
Rock Island. 

Bpecia! to the Post-Dispatch. 

CHICAGO, Feb. 1—Eastern golfers 
will read with surprise that the West- 
ern amateur championship is to _ be 

played on July 18 to 18 at the Rock 
Island Golf Club. These were the dates 
set by the Executive Committee of the 
W. G. A. at a meeting held yesterday 
afternoon. The dates for the Western 
open event at the Normandie Club of St. 
Louis were fixed at June 18 and 1% 

Failing te receive any written invita- 
tien te put the big Olympic cup in com- 

etitien during the Olympic games in 

ngland, the W. G. A. committee de- 
cided to make it a curtain raiser to the 
Western amateur championship. Mr. 
Cady of the Rock Island club announced 
a@ special flight event to start on 

Wednesday ef the tournament week. 
Three flights of. eight each will qualify. 

Glen View will get the Marshal) Field 
cup contest, the date to be chesen by 
the club. It probably will be played for 
at the time of the club’s open tourna- 

It was decided to increase the entrance 
fee for the Western open event from % 
to $% and fatten the purses, the prize 
money to be awarded being $600. The 
winner of the championship will receive 
in addition to the gold medal embiematic 
of the honer, in cash instead of 
180, as heretofore.

Club of Kanees City, Mo., for the dates 
of June 22 to 27 for the Transmississipp!

Golf Association have definitely award- 
ed two women's Western championships 
to the St. fa Country Club for the

en Red Gauntlet if the@accident had 

not happened. 

Sea Swell proved conclusively that 
he is one of the stoutest hearted 
youngsters racing here by winning 
the opening dash, three and one-half 
furlongs, the longest journey the ‘‘ba- 
bies” have been asked to go since 
Jan. 1. This fine colt by Cesarion had 
frequently demonstrated in his early 
races that he possessed endurance as 
well as speed and he was therefore 
selected by the holiday crowd of 9000 
racegoers to carry the bulk -of the 
money bet. He closed favorite at 6 to 
5 after a slump in the odds from 8 to 
5. The bets were never in danger, as 
Sea Swell raced to the front from 
the start, made Gloriole quit by main- 
taining a fast pace and won by a 
length. Gloriole showed great im- 
provement and is rapidly rounding in- 
to.form. She is a sister to ae get 
and promises to develop into a goo 
filly after she learns more about rac- 

Glorifier Also Defeated. 

Glorifier also met defeat. Like. his 
sister he had to be content with sec- 
ond honors. The big son of Hastings 
was not at his best and showed so lit- 
tle speed during the early part of 

the struggle for the fifth race—a 
Somdions at six furlongs—that Al 
Muller, with his light weight of 90 
pounds, obtained such a big advant- 
age that he was able to stagger home 

a winner. .

ser has won six. games and lost one,

Davis won the medal for the yer 
making the highest score against m- 
pien Tom Hueston in the recent practice

The water rights owned by the com- 
pany, acording to the prospectus, ‘‘con- 
stitute 2700 miners’ inches with a nat- 
ura] fall of .300 feet capable .of generat- 
ing 2000 electric horsepower, thus ena- 
bling us to“°operate six of these mon- 
ster dredges on the property. The wa- 
ter is an asset of great value in a 
country where coal retails at $40 a ton, 
“Each of these dredges wili cost in the 
neighborhood of $120,000 installed on the 
property, the first to be paid for out of 

additional ones are to be paid for out 
of one-half of the net clean-up of\gold 
for each season; the other half going 
to dividends until the full complement 
of six dredges shall be working on the 
property when the entire season’s pro- 
fits will be distributed as dividends.” 
The prospectus continues: ‘‘As the 
open season in the Nome district 
amounts to only four months each sum. 
mer, or 120 days, and we allow 2% days 
each season for clean-ups, repairs and 
other stoppages, we count on 100 actual 
working days of 24 hours each season. 
‘The five additional dredges to be paid 
for out of the profits would cost about 
$600,000 and assuming for the sake of 
most extreme conservatism that we 
“would be compelled to replace outside 
dredging equipment of six dredges ev- 
ery 10 years and the cost in each in- 
stance would be the same, we would 
have to expend $720,000 at four different 

tion to the original $600,000 for the five 
dredges, making a total of $3,480,000 for 

the sale of treasury stock and later 

subsequent periods, or $2,880,000 in addi- 

dredge out of stock sales to cover en- 
tire working perioa of 44 years. 
More Statistics. 
“Again with a view toward cxtreme 
conservatism by allowing 10 cents a 
cubic yard for operating expenses in- 

cluding all salaries, repairs and wages 
Which is niost liberal in view of the 
fact that similar operations are con- 
ducted at the present time in Cali- 
fornia at as low as 4% cents a cubic 
yard and averaging about 5% cents 
throughout the State, we would have 
to pay $8,053,760 for operating ex- 
penses covering the entire tract of 
80,537,600 cubic yards, which together 

ment would take $11,533,760 out of the 
estimate in the gold values of $161,- 
075,200, leaving actual net profits of 
$149,541,440, or a return of more than 
fifty times the entire capitalization’ of 
the company. 

“Deducting the entire capitalization 
of $3,000,000 from this amount would 
be sufficient to pay an average of 100 
per cent annually for over 44 years to 
every stockholder on par, with his 
original investn.ent in his pocket. 

“Considering that the steck is now 

selling at 60 cents—per share this would 
be equivalent to 200 per cent on the in- 
vestment for over forty-four years to 
conie. Having been extremely and un- 
necessarily conservative in all compu- 
tations for equipment and operating ex- 
penses, etc., the only item we can cut 
down for the sake of the ‘doubting 
= is the gold deposit in the prop- 
“So we will cut that {n half and in- 
stead of $26 per cubic yard, which is a 
low calculation, let us call it $13 per cu- 
bic yard and we still have 50 per cent on 
par for over forty-four years or 100 per 
cent on the basis of 50-cents selling 
price of stock after allowing for en- 
tire capitalization out of profit in con- 
nection with this.

Mrs. Gregg 

IT am pleased to rec- 
ommend Dr,  Pierce’s 
Favorite Prescription 4s 
it cured my - womanly 
organs, Which were 
greatly aggravated. ! 
suffered for months § 
with backache, severe @ 
headache in the back 
of ny head, was anerv- 
ous wreck, as I neve' 
knew what it was to bc & 
without pain. The doc- 
tors advised an opera- 
tion, but I am glad to 
say that I did not fol- 
low their advice, . but 
began taking “Dr. 
Pierce’s Favorite Pre- 
scription instead. In a 
month’s treatment there 
was decided improve- 
ment and a few months’ 
faithful use restored me 
to perfect health, Have 
not had _ headache, 
nervousness or back- 
ache for months 

Yours truly, 
Upon request we will furnish address. 

A woman's health is a heritage too 
sacred to be experimented with. For 
her peculiar and delicate ailments only 
medicines of known composition and 
which contain no alcohol, narcotics, or 
other harmful or habit-forming drugs 
should be employed. The one medicine 
which fulfills all these requirements is 
Dr. Pierce’s Favorite Prescription—a 
remedy with a record of over forty 
years of cures to recommend it; a 
remedy, the makers of which print its 
formula on every bottle-wrapper and 
attest its completeness and correctness 
under oath, a remedy, every ingredi- 
ent of which has received the written 
endorsement of the most eminent med- 
ical writers of all the several schools 
of practice for the cure of woman’s 
peculiar diseases; ‘a remedy’ which has 
more bona-fide cures to its credit than 
any other sold by druggists for wom- 
an’s special requirements. It. is not 
iven away in the form of “trial bot- 
tles” to be experimented with, but is 
sold at a fair price by all dealers in 

Delicate, weak, nervous women 
should ny, shun the use of alco- 
holic medicines which, from their stim- 
ulat and exhilarating effects may 
seem, for a time, to do good, but which 
from the inevitable effects of the alco- 
hol in shrinking up the red corpuscles 
of the blood are sure to do great and 
lasting? harm in the me run, Besides 


the ta Feil Hy r stimulants 
which js most deplora 

: Only invigorating 

use of this famous medicine for women. 
it can not possibly do harm in any 
state or: condition of the system. It 
has been carefully adapted to woman’s 
needs by. an enced ph 

specialist in th 
ick women

As a soothing and strengthening ner- 
vine “Favorite Prescription” is | un- 
equaled and is invaluable in allaying 
and subduing nervous excitability, ir 
ritability, nervous exhaustion, nervous 
prostration, neuralgia, hysteria, bpasms, 
St. Vitus dance, and other distressing. 
nervous symptoms and commonly at- 
tendant upon feminine and organic dis- 
eases. It induces refreshing sleep and 
relieves mental anxiety and desponden- 

You can’t afford to accept a secret 
nostrum as a substitute for this 

“The Blood is the Life,” 

Science has never gone beyond the 
above simple statement of scripture. 
But it has- illuminated that statement 
and given it a meaning ever broaden- 
ing with the increasing breadth: of 
knowledge. When the blood is “bad” 
or impure it is not alone the body 
which suffers through disease. The 
brain is also clouded, the mind and 
judgment are affected, and many an 
evil deed or thought may be directly 
traced to the impurity of the blood. 
Foul, impure blood can be made pure 
by the use of Dr. Pierce’s Golden Med- 
ical Discovery. It enriches and puri- 
fies the blood, thereby curing pimples. 
blotches, eruptions and other cutaneous 
affections, as eczema, tetter, or salt- 
rheum, hives and other manifestations 
of oe blood.
