Col. Hoosovelt made this statement
to the Progre-sivo nwmlicr of the Illinois
l.ogi-laturo who were meeting in caucus
shortly after the Colonel's arrival here
from New York to-diy. The legislators

one of them Senator Klihu Hoot, whom
lie mentioned by name, came in for
criticism in this address because of a
statement they gave to the public the
lay Iwfore election, "When they thought
it. was too late for me to reply "
After charging that the lawyers pre
pared their statement without a full

"I say again that we me in this fight

Itepulilicans to waste nny time in think

us back into an organization they have
made of jiich a character tltat no honest

hy the Colonel after the Illinois legisla
tors had demanded that he say something
to them. The Colonel coutinued:

one of the future Illinois legislators.
"You are-right." said Col. Roosevelt.
"The Knights of the Golden Circle, were
profound admirers of the Constitution. "
Co, Hoosovelt then referred to the last
message of President Huchanan. He said
. it was nn able argument in defence of the

A Itanke. who is slndvinc
Acconling to tlie story to-night Palmer
met Mrs. Itapko about a year ago through
Mrs, Palmer Thereafter the husband
and wife ami the widow went out to
gether at times, but lately, so the family
admits, thi builder had taken to calling
at the Van Ituren street house. Mrs.
Itapko went out with him often, but she
always told the other members or her
family that they were to meet Mrs. Palmer
at the railroad station.
Palmer called for Mrs Rapke at Newark
lat Kriday and the -two started out.
leaving word they were to meet Mrs.
Palmer and take a trip with her. They
left Newark at once nnd thnt evening
nppcared at Newton, where they sjs'tit
file night, and on Saturday came to
Swartswood Lake., where they went to
the home of John Kmtnons. Palmer
had boarded at the Kminons home when
). wnH ..rtin- the He,
mer introduced Mrs Itapke as his wife
and remained there for the night
Palmer's excuse for being at the lake
was that Heck had complained to him
that the doors we-e not properly set
in the cottage and he had come up to
fix them. Mrs. Knpke laughingly said
that she had come up expecting to get
home Satur ay, and her children would
miss her Kindly, Mrs Kmtnons said
that she might as well remain over Sun
day, nnd she agreisi.
The builder anil the widow left the
Kmmons home yesterday morning to go
to the cottaRe They appeared in high
good humor as they went away and
joked with their hostess
The Heck cottage is about a quarter of
a mile from the Kmmons home and Mrs
Ktnmons saw the man and woman go in
that direction. Mrs Itapke had borrowed

NEW YORK GEM DEALER
REPORTS $27,600 THEFT
Diamond Importer Tells Chi
niiio Police of Daring
ClllCKio, Deo. B. Joseph Merochnick,
the New York diamond imimrter who
told tho South Clark street police eirly
this morning that two negrm-s had robbed
him of , ;il,oo; I in diamonds and Sl.iKM
in currency at Michigan avenue near
Pick place, was summoned to detective
headquarters to-night. Capt John J.
Halpiti questioned Merochnick to obtain
a more detailed story of the holdup
and when he had finished Capt. Hatpin
ninl t tint certain phases of the story
told by the New Yorker were nt least
interesting. The chief of detectives
would no', admit that lie doubted tlie
story, but he said he would like to satisfy
'himself on certain oiiitH before express
ing an opinion.
In line with this decision Capt. Halpiti
sent three del eel i vet to nceomp my the
diamond btoker in an automobile over
the route taken by him and hisassailants.
Merochnick gave j minute description
of tho two negro robbers, though one of
them attacked hi m from behind. The
gem dealer said that in Milwaukee on
Saturday he lnd m-t n jewelry salesman
from MlliueaKlis He slid lie did not
know the man's nam-, but sold him ll.Oou
worth of jewelry, of which sum he said
he was roblwl He admitted to the
captain tli.it he did not give a receipt for
the money nnd did not receive tlie man's
card nnd did not know to whom lie sold
the lewelrv. He said the money wus in
the form of eight $100 bills, eight Kill bills
and twenty $;n bills.
According to tlie iolico. the brutality
of Hie attack, assuming that the victim
is telling the truth, indicates that the
holdup men mar have been aware of the
value of the booty Merochniik was
slashed viciously on" the hand, the knife
blade cutting through his glove and
inflicting nn ugly wound According to
his story, lie was choked and knocked
dow-i and a revolver was prcssi.nl to his
t The diamonds, about loo in all. varying
in W(,iKh, from ni..mr to three and

Every day of our lives
we re-order from our
factory such garments
as may be needed to re

our stocks, and thus
our assortments are al

themselves more or less
inadequate to the re
