KERBS, WERTHEIM & SOMITER,
Samse Won the
Chicago, June 3. The- greatest
performance ever before shown in
Chicago is overshadowed by the
phenomenal work of Le P.ny Sumse
of the University of Indiana, vho'
smashed all previous performances in
the pole vault by clearing the bar at,
12 feet 4J inches. This tremendous
vault was seven and one-half inches
higher than the Middle West record
and three inches higher thau has
ever been cleared before.
The best previous performance
was done by A. C. Gilbert of Yale at
the Irish-American dub's games in
New York on Decoration day. Gil
bert did 12 feet 3 inches, but the re
cord bas not yet been declaied air
thentic on account of a hih wind
wLlch prevailed and materially aided
the athlete in his work. The former
authentic record was 12 feet 1 32 100
inches held by Dole of Stanford.
' Not content with setting the record
on 12 feet 4i inches, Samse had the
bar raised two and one-half inches,
but failed to do the new height by
the narrowest possible margin just
tipping the bar as he went over.
The crowd remained until the finish
of the pole vault, which came long
after the other events were swept off
the board, acd cheered the plucky
Hoosier to the echo. He was given
he greatest ovation ever tendered
a college athlete by a Western crowd.
When Samse was trying the great
heights and it became apparent that
he was about to do something sensa
tional, the spectators rose as a man
and cheered him in every attempt.
When he would fail to clear the bar a
great groan would arise, but when
he was successful then a mighty roar
Avould go up that would startle, quiet,
Eight men qualified in the prelimin
ary trials on iViday and the bar was
placed at 10 feet C inches as a starter.
At 11 feet 6 inches five men Samse,
Haggard of Drake, Greer of Illinois,
Iddings and Her.neberry of Chica
gowere left. Eleven feet 8 inches
proved too much for the twoMaroon
freshmen and they fell by the wayside
Greer 6tuck long enough to break
the former conference record of 11
feet D inches. This left only Samse
and Haggard as the contenders, aid
the bar was raised to 12 feet 1 inch;
and both men cleared it amid intense
excitement of the spectators, who
cheered when they saw the Western
, record go above the coveted mark
of a dozen feet.
Few of the great crowd thc;;:dit
that the two vaulters would be ul.o
to go any higher. Haggard was
game, but the task cut .out for him
was too great, and he was torced to
acknowledge himself beaten when he
failed at the mark cleared by Samse.
Haggard was a compara'ively un
known man, and his performance
was a surprise to everyone.
When Samse soared ovtr the bar at
the tremendous height the crowd
went wild. Staid ulen rose and cheer
ed with the college boys, who gave
their yells ending w ith Samse's name.
Pretty collngu gills stood up and
gave vent to all sorts of inarticulate
ejaculations in their efforts to cheer
the wonderful Indiana vauiter.
It was then seen that the game
little Hoosier intended to set the bar
even higher and put the record far
beyond the reach of aspiring vaulters
for years to come. He was cheered
again ai:d age in. .When he failed the
first time a deep groan went up;
again on his second failure at 12 feet
7 inches the great crowd showed its
sympathy in the unmistakable man
The third time l;o rose gracefully,
and was oer the bar by a mall mar
gin. A roar that made the others
weak in cocr.parisou burst from the
excited throng, but instantly chang
ed to a cry of distress when h;
caught the bar on his way down, and
it fell to the ground. The spectators,
who had remained for nearly an hour
after the other events were finished,
slowly filed out of the field, and the
one topic of conversation was Samse's
To Enjoin Hill
Tacorna. June 13. By an injunction
secured last night the Union Pacific
Railroad has stopped the Northern
Pacific from building more tracks
across certain blocks of land which
the Harriman road must crobs in
order to reach , its deep-water ter
minals. The. fight on the Tacoma
tide land is a continuation of the Hill-
Harriman contest on the north bank
of the Columbia river.
As soon as the Union Pacific ap
plied for a franchise, two weeks ago,
the Northern Pacific began building
storage tracks across the tide lands
which the Union Pacific seeks to
cross. Four tracks had been laid
across the property needed by the
Union Pacific, and workmen started
to lay others when the work was
stopped by an injunction, which was
made returnable on Saturday next,

Jefferson City, (Mo.). June 13.
District Attorney Jerome of New
York, in an interview, charged that
Missouri boodle prosecutions brought
the law into disrepute and did no
good, and that the blame for cases
being reversed fell on Governor Folk's
successor in the office of .Circuit At
torney of St. Louis. Replying to this
chargo, Governor Folk said today:
"Mr. Jerome is apparently in trou
bio about something, else he would
not bo so desperate in the effort to
excuse himself. A few weeks ago he
was quoted as saying that I had giv
en him au opinioi that the insurance
plunderers hud not violated any
criminal statute, wticu 1 had given
him no opinion at all, aud had had no
communication whatever with him on

bribery cannot be measured bv the

''Lawyers can always be employed
astute enough, who are paid enoug
to ext'ic'se their wits enough to raise
points enough on which to ban-
reversal. It is easier, under the hone
and halting criminal procedure
American slates, for a camel to
through the eye of a ueedlu than
put a rich man in the peiuteutiar
for crimes against the public. But
this is no reason why the effort should
not be made if he is guilty.
To The Packers
Kansas City, June 13. The Chi
ig, l!urlir. ton and Quincy Railroad
Iniiipany was found guilty here late
his afternoon by a jury in the United
States District Court on four counts
of granting concessions on packing
house shipments for export to the
Armour Tacking Company, Swift &
Co. and the Nelson Morris Packintf
oinpany. The conviction carries
with it a fine of from $1,000 to $20,000
on each count.
Judge Smith MePherson the pre
siding Judge, deferred sentence until
Tune 22nd. All four counts are prac
tically the same. The case of the
Armour Packing Company, on which
the instructions were read to the
jury, charged specifically that the
Burlington, on April 17, 1005, ac-
.epted a shipment cf oleo oil from
Kansas City to Liverpool at a rate
that included a rate of 23 cents a
hundred pounds, Mississippi river to
New York, whereas the regular
ariff at that time was 35 cents.
To simplify the case A. S. Van
Valkenburg, District Attorney for
the Government, and Judge O. M.
Spencer of St. Joseph, representing
the defendant, sighed an agreement
of facts, which was in effect that the
Rurlington did contract with the
packers to carry their product at 23
cents for the distance named, or a
rate of 49 cents for the whole dis
tance from Kansas City to Liverpool.
Hut half a dozen witnesses were ex
amined, their testimony being large
ly technical and pertaining to the
tariffs in existonce at the time cov
ered in the indictment.
Judge McPherscu, instructing the
jury, said that the Burlington Rail
way had no right to make a contract
for a period longer than the estab
lished rate of 23 cents should be in
force. To have carried shipment for
23 cents after August 17, 1005, when
the tariff was raised to 35 cents,
would be considered a concession.
The failure of the Burlington to file
the schedule of 23 cents was immaterial.
The jury retired at 5 o'clock and
returned with their verdict at 5:35.
Railroads that have paid rebates
to the Standard Oil Company, either
directly or by means of subterfugOj
are to be next in the line of attack
by the Government. With the dis
position of the Burlington case, the
last of the rebate cases in the Fed
eral courts here have been disposed
of. Precaration has been begun
for the prosecution of several roads
on the charge of discriminatory rates
in favor of the Standard Oil Company,
either by paying rebates or(in other

Finds Cure For Leprosy.
Berlin, Juno 2. The Hamburger
Nachrichten's Constantinople corre
spondent telegraphs that Deycke
Pasha, director of the Culbane Hos
pital at Constantinople, has dis
covered a new method for the pre
ventionjand cure of leprosy. He claims
the method will render people immune
to the disease and cure all cases
where the virus has not yet complete
ly destroyed the system. He hopes
the discovery will render possible the
eradication of the disease in all dis
tricts where it is now prevalent, such
as those in Norway.

Depew In Hand.
New York, June 13. Chauncey M
Depew has been taken in hand by
Billy Muldoon, who is trying to make
a new mau of the United States Sem
ator on Muldoon's farm at White
Plains. Depew is leading the most
simple life that has been his portion
since he was a boy in Peekskill
There is a good deal of strenuosity
mneu in with simplicity. Depew wus
made to know when he yot to the
farm that Muldoon was "boss," aud
tnat too millionaire senator was no
better in the sight of the big wrestler
and renovater of worn-out bodies
than anybody else.
Since he went to hite Plains the
Senator has been living by the clock.
Muldoon has sent him to bed at U
o'clock and rounds him out promptly
at t. He has put him on a horse and
made him ride at a trot far miles,
given nun ice-cold shower baths and
mercilessly put him through a course
of sprouts with dumbbells, weights
and a medicine ball. The Senator
has improved greatly.
