Jr., to his divorced wife, Mr. Lucy
Dugas, whlchippeare In. the papers In
a suit filed by Mr. Tillman to-day to get
possession of their children, Etouschka

Senator Tillman and Mrs. Dugas Is a
granddaughter of Gov. Pickens, who
wait Minister to Russia under President
Buchanan.
Throughout the letter Mr. "Tillman alt
ludea to his former wife as a member of
the "Bourbon class" and speaks of him
self as of plebeian origin, but declares
that he will crush her proud spirit and
compel her to love him. Defending the
Senator's political course, to which the
family of Mrs. Dugas was bitterly an
tagonistic, Mr. Tillman says:
"Tlllmanlsm comes to redeem South

In concluding tho letter Mr. Tillman
repeatedly expresses his love for Mra

Gyp the Blood, Impudent when ho
wasn't sullen, the boisterous Whltey
Lewis and the more crafty,- soft spoken
Lefty Louis yesterday told from the
witness chair at their trial before Jus
tice doff for the murder of Herman
Rosenthal their story of a summer
night that was peaceful except for the
moment of terror when, they say, they
saw In front of the Metropole Hotel
a strange man. who later they read
was Rosenthal, shot to dehth by Brldgle
Webber, Harry Vallon -and another man
unknown to them.
They had turned and tied then, they
swore yesterday, because their one
thought was that Webber, Valjon and
the unknown man whom they saw
shooting and Jack Rose and Sam
Schepps, who were with Webber, Val
lon and the unknowu murderer, had
opened flro not to kill Rosenthal but
to kill them. And once safely In the
subway at Times Square, they said,
they had gone to the Harlem tlat of
Dago Frank, who had gone home just
before the murder.
They slept there that night while
the girl that lived with Dago Frank
and brought money Into the tlat was
sending messages from a police stutlon
to Frank tliat she lied lieen arrested
after midnight and asking that Frank
bring a bondsman to her.
Klrd Hri'isir faansr Was Accnurd.
The night before all four of them had
stayed In the flat also while the girl
'walked the streets, and when they had
got up "about 11 o'clock' In the fore
noon they had gone out to get shaved,
their hnlr cut, their shoes shlned and
their huts cleaned. But on this morn
Ingi, following the murder of Rosenthal,
they had arisen "about 8:30 o'clock"
and bed learned from Dago Frank, Just
returned from his quest for a bonds
man for the girl, that It was Rosenthal,
"the squealer." whom they had seen
shot the night before and that mem
bers of the Zellg gang, to which the
four belonged, wore wanted for the
murder.
Therefore they tied, knowing that ol
though they had seen and could Identify
the murderers, they themselves as Zellg
gangsters would be charged with the
murder. Weeks later Whltey bought a
ticket "up In the mountains" and was
about to take a train to New York to
tell the Cormier thn real truth" when
hu was arrested.

came back to town they "walked rlnht

month later they were urrested by

of face added to the Impudent remarks
for which he was reproved more than
once, an Impudent smile allowing very
white teeth,
"Why," Uyp was asked by Mr. Moss
In the calm, almost solicitous manner In
which the Assistant District Attorney
cross-examined all three throughout the
day, "did you tell me at Police Head
quarters the night you were arrested by
Commissioner Dougherty, knowing
then, so you awear now, that Rose,
Webber and Valron were In custody
then and knowing that you could iden
tify them as the real murderera--why
did you deny all knowledge of the
Rosenthal murder to me then Instead of
letting me know that Rose and Webber
were guilty?"
"Because I knew you didn't want to
hear that they were guilty," snarled
Qyp. "Because I knew you didn't want
to know that."
Hyp thn ntond Confesses to Thefts.
"You're not here to Insult me," cried
Mr. Moss, and the reproof and an added
word from Justice doff once more
brought Qyp up short. Straightway he
was fuwnlngly apologetic for a moment.
Then he lapsed to sullenness and finally
to loud Impudence again.,
When he was asked how he had sup
ported himself previous to the murder
he said he had been "u general thief
around town for the past five years or
so," He admitted his prison terms fpr
burglaries, grand larcenies and pocket
picking and any arrests concerning
which tho prosecution could produce the

SDPREME COURT FAVORS
RADICAL LAW 1 TRUSTS
Foreshadows Decision for South
Dakota, Which Made Un
fair Prices a Crime.
Wahhinoto.v, Nov. 14. Great Interest
was aroused in the Supreme Court to-day
when at tho conclusion of arguments sub
mitted on behulf of tho Central Lumber
Company in a suit against the State of
South Dakota the court notified the
attorneys for the Slate that it did not
oare to hear arguments for the State.
Tho cast) involves the validity of a
statute which defines and provides a
penalty for the crime of "unfair dis
crimination." The law makes it an offence
for persons or corporations engaged in
production. manufacture or distribution
of commodities in general use "intention
ally for the purpose of destroying the com
petition of any regular established dealer
In tueh commodity or to prevent the.
competition of any person who in good
faith Intends and attempts to become
such dealer, to discriminate between
different sections, communities or cities
by selling mich commodity at a lower
rate in on,e section than in another."
Allowance is made in the statute for the
equalization of prices by considering
tne difference in cot of transportation
and other necessary exienses for pro
duction or distribution.
By its action to-day thu Supreme Court
plainly indicated that it would hold the
statute to bo valid. The Central Lumber
Company was proceeded against crimi
nally under (lift ''tut'' statute, it demurred
to the complaint by raising u question
as 10 tho constitutionality of the act.
Tho case was carried to the highest court
of .South Dakota and the constitutionality
of tho law upheld. The case then came to
th" Supreme Court on u writ of error.
Thero has been widespread interust
in tho caso as exemplifying a new form
of anti-trust legislation. There has ben
much discission In and out of Congress
of fhn subject of passing a Federal law
requiring great, industrial concerns and
other producers to sell their produots
at a uniform price making allowance as
was dono in the rase of the .South Dakota
statute for added transportation xxpense
anil other additional costs for distribu
tion. One of the charges made by the Govern
ment In Its suits against the Staudurd
till Company and the American Tobacco
Company was that these trusts lowered
prices in localities wheru competition
was sharp to a otnt below the cost of pro
duction und after competition had been
destroyed would raise prices to a point
abnqrmally high and thus recoup the
losses due to tho methods employed to
kill competition, It was charged thut
in communities where there was no com
petition the triistftmaintaiuud high prices.
Hills have been introduced in both
houses, of Congress since the Standard
Oil and Tobacco trust cases, mulling it
an offence to sell a commodity at a lower
price in one locality than in another,
It is expected that this kind of leads
lation will be looked upon with greater
favor by Congress now since the attitude
of the Supreme Court has been indicated.
HENS ARE LAYING OFF, '

Washington, Nov, 14. The hen her
self, according to Dr. II. M. Lanon, th
Government hen expert, Is chiefly re
sponsible for the high price of eggs,
Speculation, he said to-day, might have
added something to the price.
"However, this Is the moulting season
for chickens," said Dr. Lanon. "It In
the time when hens are expending all
their energy In throwing off old feathers
and taking on new ones. They haven't
time for laying.
"Although In some cities consumers

Quito at 91,660,000.
Contrary to expectations, the Fifty
ninth street line and Its riverfront con
nections did not go on foreclosure sale
yesterday to" the New York Railways
Company. It went Instead tj Edward
Cornell, a lawyer at 34 Nassau street.
Mr. Cornell said last night that he Is
his own man and that he outbid Theo
dore 1. Shonts and hi associates on a
speculation. Ills bid was 11,673,000,
with $50,000 down.
"I have a year In which to raise the
rest of the money," said Mr. Cornell,
"and I guess I can do that. I figured
out that the line was going for less than
It was worth. As matters turned out
I think I was right. It did go for less
than It Is worth and I got it."
There was every expectation on the
part'of the New York Railways direct
ors that they would get the line through
Fifty-ninth street.
Tho directors had even appointed a
reorganization committee composed of
Mr. Shonts. president of the Interbor
ough and the New York Railways Com
pany, and Kdward J. Berwlnd and Har
ry Bronner. directors. They had drafted
a plan of reorganization and had sub
mitted It to the Public Service Commis
sion. A hearing was to have been held
on It yesterday afternoon before the
ftommlsslon, but when Commissioner
Maltble said that proceedings were In
order he was told that the hearing need
not be held, for there was nothing for
the committee to reorganize.
"Who Is Cornell?" somebody asked
after the auction.
He's In tho telephone booK ana tlie
directory. That' nil we know, was tne
reply.
,.Mr.,.CornelI Is a partner in me law
flrm of Davrcr, -An. LumcTr
Harrv. '
The sale, under an order from Judge
Lucombe of the United States Circuit
Court, was called for 2 o'clock yesterday
afternoon. Mr. Shonts and n lawyer
from the office of James L. Quachen
bush, general counsel for the New York
Railways Company, were on nanu ai
that hour.
Ishain Henderson, a lawyer at Lib
erty strretwread aloud the order of sale
and usked for bids.
Three hundred thousand dollars,"
said Mr. Shonts, bunding up u check for
$.-.0,000 signed by himself, .Mr. uerwinu
und Mr. Bronner.
Am I bid morn?" asked Mr. Hender
son.
Theie was no Immediate response and
Mr. Henderson was on the point or
knocking down the toad to Mr. Shonts
for $300,000 when Mr. CorrelP raised his
hand and offered u check for $30,000 to
bind u bid. It wus examined and passed
upon favorably by the auctioneer's
banker.
"I bid $.100,000." said Mr. Cornell.
The bidding proceeded in $10,000 jump
until Mr. Shonts bid $1,50(1.000. Then
Mr. Cornell raised It to $1,353,000. the
precise sum which he figures that the
New York Rullways Company win re
ceive on Its mortguge. Mr. Shonts went
higher, but when the ngures readied
$1,50,000 he paused. After a moment's
consideration he bid $1,000,000. Mr.
Cornell then Jumped to $1,63,000, and
when Mr. Henderson repeated the old
and usked If there were uny other offers
Mr. Shonts whispered to his associates
for n minute and then shook bis head.
Mr. Henderson announced that the road
was Mr. Cornell's.
Some one In the group which had
gathered to watch the bidding usked'
Mr. Cornell whom he represented.
"I represent Mr. Edward Cornell,"
he said', with u smile.
He l.ad nothing to odd to that state
ment late yesterday afternoon when
ho received caller In his ortlce.
"Is It the Third Avenue, Mr. Cor
nell?" "It lb myself," he said. "I bid In the
road and I Intend to bold It until I
get n better offer for It. In case none
comes, I will organize n company and
operate It. I do not mean to say thut
I havo 11,673,000 of my own to put
Into the street railway, but IJhlnk I
know where I can get It."
Frederick W. Whltrldge, president of
the Third Avenue Railway Company,
said last night that his company had
no Interest, present or prospective, In
the purchase.
George W. Llnch, general manager
of the Fifty-ninth street line and re
ceiver for tho Second Avenue Railroad
Company, had no light to throw on the
matter. (
"I know nothing of such a plan,"
said Mr. Llnch when usked If a $3,
500,000 Issue of receiver's certificates
recently made by the Second Avenue
might be applied to the purchase.
It was suggested that perhaps ex
Senator William A. Clark of Montana
is the man who will help Mr. Cornell
supply the money for the purchase.
Mr. Clark is the largest stockholder
In the line, Anson R. Moran, chair
man of the stockholders' committee,
ald that he had no foreknowledgo of
Mr. Cornell's action.
The Central Park, North and East
River Railroad Company has nineteen
miles of road, only three and a half of
which are electrified. It operates cars
across Fifty-ninth street and horso
cars from the Battery to Fifty-ninth
street on both riverfront.
Mr. Cornell said that If he forms a
company to operate tho line It will buy

Budapest, Nov. u.-Turkey's direct
appeal to Bulgaria for peace remove
tho danger of the Bulgarian entering
Constantinople, the Serb capturing
Durozzo or the Moslems massacring the
Christians.
The next development will be an
armistice, then a discussion of tho
various problems involved in the Balkan
war; but I am able to affirm that th
FranooRussian proposal to refer them
to a conference will bo vetoed by th?
Austrian and German Government,
which consider such an assembly mori
dangerous than helpful.
Austria wishes that the whole prob
lem be tackled by united Europe, stand
ing on a higher pTaVforra than tho Trlpb "
Alliance and the Triple Entente.
All the Powers unanimously main
tain the integrity of Albania.
These welcome consequences markoi
the beginning of the end of Ssrvia'f.
attitude, which is alto perceptibly
conciliatory.
The Austrian representative at B?t
grade still has his door wide open for
negotiations, seeing that Premier Pa
Bitch has not uttered the fateful non
poBsumus. His unweighed words to
a French correspondent caused dismay
in the journalistic world here, but tho
Austro-Hungarian Government contem
plated them from a psychological angle
of vision and experienced no strong
emotion.
It was felt that the Servian Premier
was testing the strength of Austria'
resolve to maintain her ground to the
end und as affording his own nation an '
ocular demonstration of the danger
involved in the pursuance of the present
policy.
Henceforth a compromise will com
mend itself to the population of Bervi
which realizes the ruinous cost' of
obstinacy. Another object presumably
aimed at was to bring into paralysing
action such latent discord as was sus
pected to prevail among the rival State,
but the speculation on setting the gnat
Powers by the ear failed dismally,
None of them will make a crucial
question of uny issue which does not
affect her own vital interests. They
will be obliged to deal with tho problem
as-u whole, each one seeking to driv
an advantageous bargain.
Austria is keen to have the issues ex
amined by a united Europe, unanimous)
at least in striving for a permanent
settlement based upon an all around
compromise. With this object she has
made sacrifices which six weeks ags
nobody would have believed possible. '
Tlie sanjak of Novi-Bazar was thought
to be earmarked for annexation,
Salonica was predestined 16 become
an Austrian-Hungarian seaport and
Albania was to be either incorporated
or protected.
I have found only one diplomatist
of the Triple Entente who shares my
conviction that these designs are im
aginary. Austria therefore, which has
thus contributed materially and unex
pectedly to safeguard the European
peace, is confident that the other Powers
which now belaud her efforts will also
cooperate with her whole heartcdly in
unravelling the tangled skein of inter
national interests, for only then can a
practical solution bo permanent.
A moat favorable opportunity now
offers for a combined and purposeful ao
t Ion by Europe wrhich , if adopted , would
work miracles. Already the seemingly
Impossible has come to pass in the caso
of one Power. "
If statesmen could but get beyond the
narrow confines oi their respective
group a paciflo revolution in inter
national politics might result, and at
any rate one source of perennial danger
to peace would be sealed. Already
more has been achieved than remains
to attempt. ,
Moreover, tho Power seem favorably
disposed. Austria-Hungary has given
the example, Russia, is emulating Ru- '
