SUGGESTS HAGUE TRIBUNAL
Chief Executive Refers to Roosevelt
Attacks the Enemies He Holds Re
sponsible for His Political "De
mise" Answers Banker Clews.
New York, Jan. 7. In event the
pending negotiations between Great
Britain and the United States fall to
bring about a settlement, President
Taft declared himself hero Saturday
as unequivocally In favor of arbitrat
ing the Panama canal tolls,
The president's first public declara
tion of his attitude on the question
was made at a luncheon glveta in his
honor by the international peace
forum. Later, at the Republican "re
organization" dinner, he presided at
what he styled his own political
"wake." He made the funeral ora
tion over his political corpse, asked
modest praise for Ills deeds during
the time he lived at the White House,
recited at length tho causes that led
up to his "demise" and attacked the
enemies ho held responsible for his
taking off. In the course of this
speech tho president made his first
public reference to Colonel Roosevelt
plnce the campaign, saying that prob
ably 1,000,000 Republicans voted for
WUson "to avert the danger of
Referring to the Panama canal
treaty tho president, who had said
at the outset of his remarks that he
rose "with mingled feelings of sorrow
and pleasure," continued:
"iy friend Mr. Clews differs -with
mo and with the administration In
the constructions of that treaty. That
is all right. I suppose questions be-
ijl M&A fnfck hnvn of toon oe tn
of contracts In which good honest
cconlo have been on both sides. Now
that presents to me a very significant
and useful example with respect to
arbitration. A good many peoplo are
saying: 'Don't arbitrate because you
are going to lose This is our own
canal, and while England is making
a point of it, England would not gat
about it, and therefore why give up
when you are not likely to get an
arbitration that will bo satisfactory
to you and your view of tho construc
tion?' "Now then even if this view were
correct as to probability of result,
which I need not admit Is just the
time when I am in favor of an arbi
tration." Washington, Jan. 4. President Taft
sent to tho senate the name of Henry
S. Boutell of Chicago, minister to
Switzerland, for appointment to the
United States court of claims. Mr.
Boutell was a former member of con
gress. Tho president nominated Judge
.Kenton W. Booth for the position of
chief justlco, in place of Stanton J.
Pbelle, who retired.
London, Jan. 7. The eu.oys of the

I. 8. SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS
INDICTMENTS CHARGING COT-
FOUR COUNTS ARE APPEALED
Decision Settles Question That a
"Corner" of any Commodity Is a
Restraint of Interstate Commerco
and Violation of the Sherman Law.
Washington, Jan. 8. Tho Supreme
court Monday, by upholding certain
disputed counts against James A. Pat
ten and others, charged with a viola
tion of tho Sherman anti-trust law in
running a so-called cotton corner, sent
the case against the men to trial in
the lower courts.
Patten, Eugene a. Scales, Frank B.
Hayne and William P. Brown were in
dicted in Now York on charges of con
spiracy on January 11, 1910, to corner
cotton by extensive buying on tho Now
York cotton exchange, as a result of
which the price would be enhanced
and ultimately bring arbitrary and ex
cessive prices. The conspiracy was
described as calculated to yield $10,
000.000 in profits.
The alleged violation of the Sher
man law was set forth in the Indict-J
ment in eight different -ways in its
many counts, the defendants being;
liable for trial on any one.
Before the defendants could be
placed on trial, the United States cir
cuit court for southern New York held
insufficient fpur counts as not stating
an offense. The government appealed
from that decision to Supreme court.
The decision settles the important
question that a "corner" of any com
modity is a restraint of interstate com
merce and may bo a violation of the
Sherman anti-trust law.
The decision does not determine the
question of the guilt of Patten or the

tho facts with the important principle
of law established that If a corner in
cotton is proved, the Sherman statute
Becauso of similarity in the counts
held Insufficient the controversy in
the Supreme court narrowed down to
the validity of the third and seventh
The third count had been attacked
successfully as insufficient because It
merely stated an alleged conspiracy
to buy cotton and omitted to charge
agreements to withhold cotton or sell
In any particular manner.
Justice Lurton announced a dissent
ing opinion In which Chief Justlco
White and Justice Holmes concurred.
The case will now go back to the
federal court of southern New York
for trial or other proceeding.
The Supreme court held that tho
plan advanced by Union Paclflo attor
neys of disposing of the entlro stock
holdings of tho Union Pacific Railroad
company In the Southern Pacific com
pany by transfer to the stockholders
of the Union Pacific company would
not so effectually end tho Union Pa

Washington, Jan. 8. Samuel Qom

answer to criticisms aimed at
the organization of workers which ho

"If ever the time shall come," said
Mr. Gompers In the climax of his ad

In closing his statement, which In
cluded an attack upon employers' and
manufacturers' associations, particu
larly the United States Steel corpora

organized labor would not repudlato

continued, "none feels the terrlblo

Supersedeas Bond Fixed In Chicago
to Await Hearing on Writ
Chicago, Jan. 6. Writs of superse
deas were granted Friday by the Uni
ted States court of appeals In the case
of thirty-two of tho thirty-three labor
leaders convicted of a dynamite plot.
All will bo released on bonds. That
of Frank M. Ryan was placed at $70,
000. Tho bonds were made on a basis
of $10,000 for each year Of the term
to which th men -had been sen
tenced. - - -W-f '
In fixing the bonds Judge Baker re
viewed the evidence and tho argu
ments in tho case and stated that the
bonds should be large enough to make
the persons furnishing them very
much concerned In getting the men
Into court when they are wanted.
The chargo Is not one In which ex
tradition may bo resortod to, ho said.
If the men should onco get out of the
country, ho declared It doubtful If
thoy could bo compelled lo lelurn or
if tho government could punlBh them.
Only thirty-two of tho thlrty-threo
committed men woro specifically rep
resented, although all were mentioned
In tho petition. Herbert S. Hockln of
Indianapolis had expressed a willing
ness to serve his sentence and not
ask an appeal.
Attorneys for tho 33 convicted labor
leaders at once took steps to provide
suitable bonds for their clients.
The bonds for the 32 men, as fixed
by tho court, aggregate $1,070,000.
Immediately following the decision
of the court of appeals tho point was
raised by whom the bonds should bo
approved. It was agreed by tho court
and tho attorneys that Federal Judgn
Anderson of tho district court at In
dlannpolls should be the judge to ap
prove the bonds.
