NO REPLY AT BEVERLY

Beverly. Mass., JUaS- 19— No disposi

an informal or unofficial reply to stories
telling; of a- serious break between Presi
dent Taft end president Hoosevelt.
The President an<i Mr. Norton absolutely
refuse to discuss the matter either offi
cially or unofficially. Tlicre is a general
belief in Beverly, however, That Mr.
Roosevelt's attitude, if it ha* been cor
rectly reported, is basc-d on an entire
misapprehension arid misunderstanding
of the facts.
There is also a feeling here that a bet

may be due to the fact that Lloyd O.
Griscom, president of the New York
republican County Committee, Is com

here that "William Loeu. jr., may be an

Democratic State Convention
There on September 29.
Resolution Deploring Attempt on
Mayor Gaynor's Life Adopt
Saratoga Springs. N. V.. Aug. 19.— 8y
unanimous, vote the Democratic State
Committee decided hero to-night to hold
the next Democratic State Convention at
Rochester on September 29, at noon. This
decision was contrary to the personal pref
erence of Chairman John A. Dix and many
of the delegates, who favored Saratoga
Springs, but was made necessary because
the Republicans had previously decided to
hold their convention here during the same
•week, and it was feared the hotel accom
modations would be insufficient.
A resolution expressing regret at the
attempt on the life of Mayor Gaynor and
ope of his speedy recovery was adopted
by a rising vote, and after a session last
ing scarcely fifteen minutes, the commit
tee adjeurned. to meet at the Whltcomb
House in Rochester on Wednesday, Sep
tember 2S, at S p. m.
The Gaynor resolution, presented by
John H- McCooey, of Brooklyn, follows;
"Whereas, the attempt made last week
upon the life of Mayor Gaynor has filled
the whole country with abhorrence for
such methods, and has again brought
home to the people the dangers which
constantly menace conspicuous public men.
"Resolved, That we, the Democratic State
Committee of Xew York, add ouj voice
to the. universal chorus of regret caused
by this attack, and hope that, in spite ot
the grave nature of his injury. Mayor
Gaynor may long be spared- to continue j
his unselrish and able service to the peo- ■
"Resolved. That in his affliction, we ex
tend to him our heartfelt sympathy, and
trust that the near future may see him ''
completely restored to unimpaired health i
and thus enabled for many years to come
to place at the. command of his fellow
citizens his great gifts of industry, abil
ity and sterling integrity."
Rochester Boomers Get Prize. i
Until a few minutes before the commit
tee wao called to order, in the ballroom
of the Grand Union Hotel, the indications
pointed to the selection of Saratoga Springs
as the convention city. But a delegation
of Rochester boomers, headed by Mayor
Edgcrton, who had put In a busy day,
eventually carried off the prize.
A preliminary meeting of the committee
•was held this evening, at which formal
invitations were extended by Rochester
and Saratoga Springs, and to-night Syra
cuse was pressed by John W. Hogan and
Thomas Meacnam, who urged that Inas
much as a Democratic convention had not
been held there In fourteen years the in
vitation be accepted.
W. A. Huppuch, of Hudson Falls, who
throughout the day had labored to bring
th« convention here, declared that in view
of the conflict of dates and the Insufficient
hotel accommodations the best Interests
of the party would be served by holding
the convention at Rochester, and offered
a resolution to that effect. There was no
demand from Oommittc-eman W. V. Raf
forty, "of Syracuse, for a. rollcalL, and
Rochester was cho«en unanimously.
Chairman Dix, on calling the committee
to order, told of Ma plan to visit each Sena
torial district in the state to confer with
the Democratic League, and expressed this
belief that good results would follow. ■-
"We can • accomplish results only by labor
and perfect organization," he said, "and
perfect organization must bo guided ■ by

WILL SHOOT TO KILL
Strike Leaders in New Bedford Warned
by Chief of Police.
.New Bedford, Mass.. Ant;. IC— The heavy
rain of the early morning prevented much
of the construction work in this city to
day, and as a result there was little chance
for the S.IW striking building laborers to
interfere with the Strike breaker?. A dem
onstration had been expected at the New
Sharp Mill, in the extreme southerly part
of the city, but when one hundred more
strikers, divided into four or live groups,
approached the mill from different direc
tions, they were corralled by a detail of
policed who banded the strikers together
and sent them up a side street.
The Chief of Police, Mason, had the strike
leaders at the central police station for an
Interview to-day, in the coarse of which
the labor leaders were told the chiefs view
of Just what they can and cannot do.
"Tlnre will be no more shooting up m the
air," said Chief Mason. "If the police have
x<< draw their revolvers they will mean
business. I told the union officials that
«re ■will not allow any Intimidation of the
workmen on the Jobs whatever."

MR. ROOSEVELT AS EDITOR
He Speaks, Gives Luncheon,
Sees Callers, Lays Cornerstone.
Mr. Roosevelt dropped politics -yesterday,
for a day; at least be tried to drop It
In order to put In a regular day contrib
uting to "The Outlook" at the offices of
that magazine on Fourth avenue. How
ever. Ihpro were sundry interruptions to
■ full day's work by the contributing
editor- of them planned and others
Foreseen were his visit and speech to the
National Negro Business League conven
tion In Pain) Garden, his luncheon to the
Oyster Bay newspaper correspondents at
the National Arts Club, and his trip to
Garden City in the afternoon, when he laid
the cornerstone of the new building being
erected there by the Doublcday. Page &
Co. publishing house.
Representative Hamilton Fish, of New
York; Representative EL W. Cocks", of
Nassau; C. V. Collins, State Superintendent
of Prisons; General James S. Clarkson,
former Surveyor of the Port, and John A.
Stewart were among the callers at Mr.
The ex-President laughed aside, a ques
tion concerning his probable presence at
the state convention with another question
"Would you consider what happened on
Tuesday an invitation to go?"
But he did not give either affirmation or
denial to the suggestion that he might give
his speech on state issues from the floor
of the Saratoga convention hall.
He tcok (he same position in regard to
questions about reports touching on his
present relations with the President, and
declared that he was responsible only for
statements he himself made.
Mr. Roosevelt did not appear to be dis
pleased ivith any of the reports, but said
that as the reports vrere not accredited to
him it was not for him to affirm or deny.
The finishing touches on the speeches for
his approaching Western irip engaged Mr.
Roosevelt's time in part yesterday, and his
announcement to that effect brought the
"Have you consulted vlth the Conarres
eionai committee about the speeches?"
"My speeches represent myself," Mr.
Roosevelt's response, with a laugh.
To-day he will have as a visitor at Saga
moro Mill Representative Nicholas Lonp
worth. who has jiist come down from
Beverly, and the talk v-ill probably be the
last important one in v. political sense in
which Mr. Roosevelt will indulge at Oyster
Bay until after hia trip.
He will leave New York on Tuesday for
Cheyenne. Wyo., on the first lap of his tirst
extensive trip since his return from Africa
PATTEN LANDS IN ANGER
Can't See Why Papers Make
Such a Fuss Over Him.
The White Star liner Adriatic, from
Southampton, Cherbourg and Queenstown,
reached her pier here yesterday with James
A. Patten on board. Before interviewers
reached him papers had been put aboard
the liner in which he read the accounts of
the sale of his exchange seat. They seemed |
to leave him in very ill mood, for when re- :
porters questioned him about the sale of
the sest he waved his arms violently and:
"Why, there isn't anything to make a
fuss about in regard to the sale. I simply
gave word before leaving this country that
if the bid for the seat should go to $70,000
the scat should bo sold. Well, 1 when the
bid reached that amount thy seat was sold.
And that's all there la to it. Then the
newspapers have to go and make half a
column out of that. I can't do a thing: |
without its being put in the newspapers. 1 '
It was some time before Mr. Patten .would
•say anything more, and .Trhen he did he re
fused to talk on financial conditions, lie
spoke on the shooting of Mayor , Gaynor, ;
and said: - .... . ■-
"Mayor Gaynor brought city politics to
a rliine in which it was lifted out from the
level of the ward politicians. A politician
who wouldn't go into saloons in New York
was looked . on as cold and/ chilly. He
received no support as he does now."
Mr. Fatton reiterated his statement of
some time ago that he was out of busi
ness, lie made reference to the university
matters in which be was interested in
Chicago, and said work on that line was
taking up mucn of his time.
Among the saloon passengers on "the
Adriatic were over a half dozen men who
have the reputation among (steamship men
of being card sharps. Their presence
aboard was soon made well enough known
and they (did not succeed in getting into
any card games during the trip. It was
noticed that some of them appeared to be
trying to reach friendly terms, with Pat

WILL KEEP FACTORIES OPEN
Cloak Manufacturers Table Plan
for General Shut -Down.
Alter a prolonged meeting at the Hoffman
HoiLse yesterday the plan of ordering a gen
eral shut-down in the factories of the mem
bers of tile Cloak, Suit and Skirt Manu
facturer?:' Association was tnbled by its ox
eeotlve committee. Some of the members
said they would not reopen their factories
until they were convinced that all violence
by the strikers was over. The following
statement waa issued:
"Such a step as a general shut-down
would b» attended with such farreaching
results that the manufacturers hesitate to
take it. Not only the 70.0u0 workmen on
strike iioro would find their work taken
away • from them, even should they desire
to return to their work, but the employes in
hundreds of woollen, cotton and silk mills
would be thrown out of employment, for
with the dosing of a majority of New
York's cloak und suit shops many of the
mills would rind it necessary to reduce the
number of their hands, while more than
on* would have to shut down altogether.
"The desire not to inflict more hardship
than may 1 c compulsory upon their old
employes is another restraining motive
which the manufacturers have had to con-
Eider. The general feeling among the em
ployers Is that their men have been misled
and that once the situation can bo made
clear to them that by returning to work
they now can obtain all their desires except
th« empty benefit of a closed shop,' they
will be anxious to return to work, and the
employers want to do nothing to prevent
their obtaining this work when unco they
come to their senses."

Says Indians Tool^ Hardly Any
Tribal Action Without Advice
of His Law Firm.
Sulphur, Okla.. Aup. II I.'.—lt1 .'.— lt v>aa brought
out to-day in the testimony of J. F. Mo-
Murray before the Congressional commit
tee Investigating Indian land affairs that
he held ac many as hnl? a dozen contracts
with the Indians for legal services, all cov
ering the same period of time.
Mr. McMurray testified that for general
services he had two contracts >fJth the
Chlekasaws at $5,000 v year each; two with
the Choctaws at $5,000 a year each; another
contract for special services at a fee of
JIo.OHO, only $3,000 of which was paid, a
yearly expense allowance of $2,700 under
one contract and other general expenses,
amounting In all to $180,000 a year. All of
thfs money was in addition to the $7j0,000
allowed his law firm as a contingent fee in
the citizenship cases and in addition also
to the contracts by which he now seeks to
obtain 10 per cent, or $3,000,000, as a con
tingent fee on the sale of $30,000,000 worth
of asphalt and coal landc.
"How is It that, while having so many
contracts to represent the Indians gener
ally on regular salaries, you got a special
contract on a contingent fee basis every
time any special case bobbed up?" usked
Representative 15. W. Saunders, of Vir
ginia, a member of the committee. "Isn't
it strange that the Indians had to sign so
many in order to get their affairs straight
ened out, when the government was sup
posed to look after a, great part of that
Mr. McMurray replied that he had been
identified with the Indians so rr.any years
that they had come to look to him to take
care of their legal affairs. He said hardly
an act had been passed by their tribal
councils without the sanction of his legal
firm. Many of the expensw allowances, thy
vitness said, had been collected by him
without the knowledge of the Department
of the Interior. Also, he said, many acts
passed by the tribal legislature were not
submitted to the Presidrnt of the United
States, as it was asaertn 1 was required.
Asked by Representative Miller, of Min
nesota, whether his work had not tended
to lead the Indians away from a close
relationship with the government, Mr. Mc-
Murray said be always had done his ut
most to bring the Indians and the govern
ment together. It was also shown that the
Indians had employed other attorneys be
sides McMurray, each tribe paying $5,060 a
year, and one of the tribes Jll'.OW a year,
for special counsel.

Indians have pledged themselves to pay for

Any attempt to reopen the government
Indian rolls and admit thousands of claim
ants to participate in the division of lands
now held in reserve will be resisted by the
Indians at present on the rolls, according
to MeMnrray. He told Ihe committee he
believed a jrreat many were now wrongfully
on the rolls and many were wrongfully

however, by saying that the lamp na-i

Just a3 Fleisher seemed to be regain
ing: his composure on the stand Coroner
Schwannecke. leaning far forward in his
scat, pointed his finger at the young
man and thundered out: "Why was it, if
neither you nor ssoaaajsajaaaa 1 had any
Idea that you had rammed the carriage,
with fatal results, your first action upon
' reaching home was to engage the ser
vices of a lawyer?"
Fleisher gave a non-committal answer
to that question.
At that point in th« proceedings. Cor
or.er Sc-huannecke leaned over his desk
and shouted at Fleisher:
"You are such an infernal liar that I
am not going to ask you any more
(questions at this time. You may leave

the West Chester public school, was the
next witness. He said that he wa3 driv
ing down a cross road at Pelham Park
i way at the time of the collision and dis
i tinctly saw the automobile going at ter

crash of glass and splintering wood. He
i said two men were in the car, and that
! the man in the rear seat was leaning
! forward and apparently talking to the
driver. As he turned his carriage Into
i the parkway, Dolen said, a woman came
, running up to him. wringing her hands
and crying: "For God's sake, help me: A
woman has just been killed here."

he was driving Mr. Steinau and a friend
up Pelham Parkway, and that when they

Deans asked Mr. Steinau If he should
not go down the road in the car and see
If he could find the escaping automobile,
and. getting his permission, put his car
down the parkway at full speed. Deans
said that his car was capable of a speed
cf seventy miles an hour, and that he
drove for more than a mile before he
came in sight of the other machine. The
car had come to a stop and a man whom
Deans swore to be Rosenheimer was
kneeling in the road, apparently trying
■to repair it. There -were two men in the
I tonneau of the car. he said.
Deans said that he shouted at the
men. "Do you know that there has been
an accident down below, and that a
woman was killed and two- people
Tho. men made no answer to this, ac

the front of tffe car was badly dam

sake come back with me and see hat
you have done."
i Drove Off Again, He Says.
The only answer Deans received, he
i said, was a scowl from th«* men, and
' then Rosenheimer jumped into the ma
; chine and drove off at full speed. As
1 Rosenheimer climbed into his car. said
j Deans, he had a chance to see the license
j number of the car. He hunted up a pa
j trolman and gave him the number.

and his attorney. Stephen J. Stilwell.
