Michigan Bar Association on Thursday,
declared In an Interview to-day that
Theodore Roosevelt was preparing to
attempt to seine the Republican nom

"I believe Roosevelt's friends will en

actlxe candidate for the nomination for
President on the Republican ticket." said
Senator McCumber "I do not pretend
to say that Roosevelt will be nominated
or that, If nominated, he will be elected."
This Is not the first time that the sug
gestion has been made in State capital
political circles, Some State politicians
hold the same opinion.
Progressives are loud In their dentals,
however, nnd say Roosevelt will never

PAID 94,880 TOO MUCH ALIMONY.
lattoB Finds Ei-Wlfe Hrmarrled
Six Years Ago.
Supreme Court Justice (loff signed an
order yesterday cutting off alimony of
$15 a week from a woman who has been
collecting It from her first husband
during six years that she has been
married to a second.
The alimony was paid by Eugene D.
Button, who was divorced by Mrs.
Isabella Sutton In 1902. Since that
time Sutton has continued to pay SIS
a week through his wife's attorney,
William M. Sullivan.
He had no Idea that hla wife was
married again until hla daughter, Mrs.
Justine Sutton dray, began proceedings
gainst her husband, John Boyd Gray,
a broker, when he found that Mrs. Sut
ton was married to Edgar Hates
Sharpe In 1907.
Mrs. Sharpe admitted that she mar
ried Sharpe six years ago and that
she believed she waa Justified In keep
ing her marriage a secret and accepting
alimony from Sutton because of the
hardships she endured In providing for
her two children before she married
Bharpe, She said that her second hus
band was well able to provide for her
and had urged her to give up her
alimony, "but I refused because I

A committee of alx New Haven Hall
road director, Instructed to find a sue-
i censor lo I'realdent Charles S, Mellen
whose resignation waa accepted jester-1
day, will meet next week, probably on
Wednesday, to discuss Informally the
qualifications of possible candidates
whom tnemliers of the committee will
be reudy to suggest at that time.
The committeemen are J. P. Morgan,
Theordure N. Vail, Samuel Rea, William
Skinner, Hdward Mllllgan and Robert
A particularly well Informed director
said last night that thus far the board
hasn't even a suspicion aa to who the new
president will be. Professional guessers
have succeeded In "mentioning" a dor.cn
men for the post, but according lo the
best Information the field Is still open.
This director said that so far as he knew
the name of llowatd Klllott, president
of the Northern Pacific, whom rumor
lias pushed to the front, hud not lieen
considered at any meeting of the board
and for that matter nobody else had
been considered either,
"The committee," added the director,
"will propably need a good deal of
time to make a selection for the con
sideration of the board. Bach member
will be expected to canvass the field
himself and to lay his opinions before
the other members at next week's con
ference. orr Mellen llrslajnetl.
"As to Mr. Mellen," the director added,
"the board Is sorry that he felt com
pelled tu resign und It did not want
him to go. The matter of hla resigna
tion never came up In a board meeting
until It was received from him on
Thursday, The directors know Mr.
Mellen and his habit of determination.
When ho asked lo be relieved of the
presidency there was nothing to do but
acuulesce. Personally I bellexe the time
will come when New hngianu win ap
preciate the value of Mr. Mellen'a ser
vices and will realize that It haa profited
bv his administration."
On the Block Exchange New Haven
shares epened at 105 yesterday morn
ing, a point and a quarter above inurs
day's closing price. About noon It
reached 1064, but took a tumble In the
afternoon and closed at 102, a drop of
2H points since Thursday.
Followers of the market ngureu mat
the morning rise reflected an opinion
that public confidence In the company
would rise as a result of the .Mellen
resignation, but that diagnosis waa up
set by the later slump. Trading
amounted to 2,200 shares, about twice
the total of the average day recently.
New Haven ( per cent, bonds opened at
116, the cloalng price of Thursday, and
closed at 114.
Qaarlerlr Dividend Declared.
The directors declared the quarterly
stock dividend of 1V4 per cent, yester
day, the annual rate of 8 per cent,
having been dropped to 6 per cent, at
the last annual meeting.
Yesterday's directors' meeting was
not as well attended as that of Thurs
day, It was very abort, beginning a
little after noon and closing at 1:30
o'clock. Most of the time the directors
were at luncheon with several officers
of the road In the dining room adjoin
ing Mr. Mellen's office. Mr. Mellen left
for Stockbrldge at 1:35, saying he waa
going to have a good rest "which," he
said, "I need."
This report of the meeting, with Mr.
Mellen's reason for resigning, was sup
plied by Kdward O. Rlggs, executive
"In a conference between a committee
of the board and Mr. Mellen (the same
committee named above) Mr. Mellen stated
that In his opinion a condition existed
that was full of disquieting possibilities
for the New Haven railroad and Its allied
property; that It was useless to discuss
the reasons for or the causes of that
condition: that It had to he met, nnd
the only way It could be met, having
pi ope r consideration for the property,
was by his resignation: thst he felt thut
everything he had done was and would
be In time Justified, but that there was a
question whether If he remained to work
the problem to that Justification it would
not be still further embarrassed. There
fore ha resigned.
Appreciate III Work.
"The committee after considering Mr.
Mellen's statement accepted his conclusion
with great reluctance and at the same
time with full appreciation of his work.
"The resignation of Mr. Mellen was
accepted by the board to take effect upon
the appointment of his successor, and the
committee waa Instructed to consider the
selection of such successor.
"At the meeting of the New Haven
directors practically no business was
transscted beyond the discussion occa
sioned by Mr, Mellen's resignation and
the declaration of the dividend payable
September 30, which Is always declared
at this time of the year, the August
meeting being always omitted.
"No discussion whatever was bad of
the Prouty report. Further consideration
of that matter was referred to the execu
tive committee, which will meet to con
sider the same on Friday nf next week,
when a draft for a reply to the report
will be submitted by Mr. Mellen to the
executive committee for Its consideration."
The "Prouty report" Is the report
of the Interstate Commerce Commis
sioner severely criticising Mr. Mellen's
administration, which waa made pub
lic on July 10. Mr. Mellen has already
pent a good deal of time on his answer

when It was learned that he waa merely
one of a group of New Haven officials

the directors. The others were H. II,

in Effort to Restore
MANAGER GAVE WARNING
Photographs Taken While Of
fenders Were in Saloons
Following out a policy that was pro
claimed immediately after the fatal wreck
t Stnmford recently, the New York,
New Haven and Hartford Railroad Ikih
dropped from Its payrolls a number of
men who railed to need warnings tnai
Infractions of the company's rules would
result In dismissal.
The hardest blow has fallen upon the
men employed In the Hnrlem River
yards and the yards at Stamford. Tlio
men upon whom discipline was visited
wero confronted with photographs or
themselves In saloons, with the testi
mony of detectives who had followed
them, mid by the records which dis
closed their dellquencles. They were
told that they had had fair warning
nnd then they were told to get out.
Clinton I.. Bardo. generul mnnnger of
the railroad, In testifying before the
Interstiite Commerce Commission ut
Brldcetiort on July 1", let It be known I
thnt he was going to enforce discipline
on the road at any cost, und Incidentally
assailed the unions of the employees us
responsible In large part for the cynical
attitude of the men toward the rules of
the company. J
Telle Nerd of Discipline.
We have got to do something." he
said, "to put down the bars on this
question of discipline, this question of
having nomebody other than tne man
who In the ftnnl analysis Is going to be
responsible say whether John Jones
shall be suspended ten days or ten
years and whether when that discipline
Is inflicted It is going to stick. No man
can enforce discipline unless he can In

"The man Is entitled to fair treat
ment, nnd we want him to have fair
treatment and will Insist that he get it,
but he must get It from the man he Is
working for. We cannot go on here as
we have been going on and maintain
discipline. You cannot have on organi
zation on that basis. It will never be
an effective one If we continue on that
Before the Inquiry Into the causes of
the Stnmford wreck was ended Mr. Bardo
began a tour of the various railroad
yards. He went to Boston, New Haven,
Stamford, the Harlem River yards; he
went everywhere that the employees of
the company could be gathered together
In large numbers. He Is a big man nnd
he speaks a brand of English that gets
under the thickest hide. There Is never
any doubt In the mind of his auditors as
to Just what he means. At every one of
these meetings with the men he spoke
as plainly as he knew how.
He took the book of rules and ex
plained it. He Informed them that or
ders posted at any time and In any place
were posted for the purpose of Instruct
ing the men, and not to give employ
ment to typewriters.
Without reservation be told the men
that Infractions of the rules must cease.
He told them that drinking would have
to atop, that any man who came to work
with a Jag on would be discharged, and
that any man who was discovered In u
place where Jags ore accumulated would
be disciplined immediately.
Warna .Men They'll He Watched.
He warned the men that the company
was going to protect Itself and that they
would be watched. He told them lie be
lieved the New York, New Haven and
Hartford Railroad Company employed
men who were Just as competent aa the
men on any other railroad In the coun
try, but thnt a spirit of derision for any
thing In the way of discipline had been
gaining among them to their own hurl
und the luirt of the rallroud.
Having warned Its men, the railroad
company took steps to see that the
warning was being heeded. Detectives
were assigned to watch employees and
those who kept records were directed to
see that every Infraction of the rules
was reported to the proper authorities.
The result of this was a calling together
of certain men In the Harlem River und
Stamford yards on Thursday night. The
foremen produced photographs of some
of theso men In barrooms. They pro
duced the record of failures to report on
time. They showed the work books with
Improper entries or no entries nt all.
Then they told the men who had been
negligent that they must expect what
had lieen threatened. Some wero sus
pended, others were discharged outright.
The unexpected blow has set the rail
road men thinking. Some of them have
raised the cry that a second chance
should have been given. The foremen
have replied that the warning was
ample. Threats have been made that
the men will appeal to their unions nnd
these threats have been met with the
declaration that the compony proposes
to stand for discipline. The olllclals are
confident that the severe measures al
ready taken will convince the men In
other plaora that the company Intends to
make good op its promises.

In which he charged llyrn with acting

Mr Mann said, "lie did not end all the

APART ON CURRENCY
Bi'v: CIhsIics Next Week Buck
ley's Bunk Director Amend
WASiil.vnTON, July IS, The differences
among the Democratic members of the
House on banking and currency are
growing more pronounced ns considera
tion of the Owen-Glass Administration
currency bill progresses, and the pros
pects to-dny were that not only will
the committee hnve dlfllcnlty In report
ing the mensure next week, but It is
probable that strong support will be
mustered for a substitute bill which is
being drafted by a member of the com
mittee, assisted by Hepresentatlve
Henry, chairmen of the Kules Com
mittee of the House.
Indications when the committee ad
journed to-day until Monday were that
the radicals and conservatives will have
their most serious clashes next week.
Hepresentatlve Winger's proposal to
prevent Interlocking directorates and
the section devoted to farm land credit
are not near a final decision.
The only proposal brought to a vote
to-day waa an amendment offered by
Hepresentatlve Huckley of Ohio "to pro
hibit a bank from mnklng a loan in
which directors are nt nil Interested."
This wus defeated by n largo majority.
Hepresentatlve Huckley. who proposed
the change, said that Inter he would
offer another amendment of the same
"Such n measure would mean the dls
bandment of every bank directorate in
the I'nited Stutes," said Chairman
Glass of the House committee.
The section which would permit
national banks other than those sit
uated In reserve cities to make loans on
Improved and unencumbered farm land
for a period not exceeding nine months
and for an amount not In excess of SO
per cent, of the actual value of the
property occupied most of the commit
tee's attention to-day This provision
stipulates that thn aggregate nf such
loans shall not exceed "! per cent, of
the capital und surplus of the hank
making the loans nor more than 60 per
cent, of Its time deposits.
Several conservatives asserted that
there Is no demand for this farm loan
provision, while others urged that the
linnks should be permitted to make
similar loans on city real estnte. To
this latter proposal the objection raised
was that there have, been no requests
for such a proviso. No action was
taken on the section.
Hepresentatlve Itagsdale nf South
Carolina announced his Intention of
offering an amendment which would
permit banks to accept cotton ware
house receipts as security on notes. Hn
says that the sale of cotton brings much
foreign gold into tho country and that
his proposal would relieve the strin
gency in the South when Northern
Kinks press their Southern correspon
dents. WESTERN BANKERS PROTEST.
