Commission Named to Pass On
Peasant Land Tenures Is
5 -Peking, April 21.M. Paul Lessar,
Russian minister to China, whose foot
was amputated recently, died last night.
M. Lessar, who was councillor oi the
Russian embassy in London, was ap
pointed Eussian minister to China July
12 1901. The deceased minister dis
tinguished himself as the negotiator
with the Chinese of the. proposed
amendments to the Kusso-Chmese Man
ehunan treaty. Early in 1901 he began
a series of meetings with Prince Clung
and Wang-Wun-Chao, who urged strong
modifications of the old agreement
made with the late Li-Hung Chang, in
order to maintain the sovereignty of
China over Manchuria. Bussia, thru
M. Lessar, agreed to some of the Chi
nese demands, but the war with Japan
ended the diplomatic negotiations on
the subject. ,_

Korea and now at Shanghai, will prob
ably succeed M. Lessar at Peking.

Witte'a Position Difficult.
The position of M. Witte, president
of the committee of ministers, grows
more and more untenable. Interior Min
ister Bouhgan has proposed to the coun
cil of the empire that the question of
higher education confided to the com
mittee of ministers be transferred to a
special commission', and the Slovo again
publishes a report that M. Witte will
retire immediately, intimating that his
successor will be Count Solsky, presi
dent of the economic department of the
committee of ministers.
An interesting report is current that
M. Shipoff, president of the Moscow
zemstvo will succeed M. Bouhgan.
Should tMs be truo it might indicate
that the government is disposed to ac

Chicago Bill Piled in Federal
Court Accuses Both Alexan

Chicago, April 21.A bill for the
appointment of a receiver for the
Equitable Life Assurance society of the
United States and seeking an account
ing, was filed in the United States cir
cuit court here today in the name of
policy holders in the society, one of
whom says he holds a $2,000 policy in
the society and that his interests are
being dissipated by the officers and
directors of the society. He names
specifically President J. W. Alexander
and Vice president James H. Hyde,
both of whom aie charged with misap
propriation of funds and mismanage
ment. The bill also declared that for
ten years the charter of the company
i and the laws of New York have been
violated, inasmuch as the officials have
failed to distribute the profits of the
company among the policy holders.
The bill alleges that the president
and vice president and directors of the
corporation have engaged in a contro
versy in relation to the business trans
actions of the company and the dis
position and custody of the assets. This
controversy, it is declared, is proving
destructive to the business of the cor
poration and the interest of the policy
holders. The controversy, it is alleged,
is between James W. Alexander and
James H. Hyde and other officers of
the society. The petitioners allege fear
that the controversy may result in the
dissolution of the corporation.

bookkeeper and confidential secretary
of Al Hay-man, now in Europe, flatly
refused to produce in court the books
of the trust. He explained that his
action in so refusing had been taken
on advice of counsel, whereupon
"Abe" G-ruber. counsel for Klaw &

fumed and demanded that Walker be
committed for contempt.
Mr. Untermyer desired the produc

moneys came to Klaw & Erlanger as
a result of the production of "The

the trial that the syndicate and their
agreements with various theaters thru
out the country were contained in a

the more important are in a compart

has the combination.
Mr. Walker, in reply to Mr. TJnter

SAYS FLEET HAS SAILED
French Foreign Minister Reports Rus
sians Have Left Kamranh.
Paris, April 21.Minister Delcasse,
while conversing with a number or
deputies in the chamber, confirmed the
rumor that the Russian fleet had left
thejooast of Anam this morning.
Acting upon instructions from his
government, Dr. Motono, the Japan
ese minister to France, called upon
Foreign Minister Delcasse yesterday
and submitted representations on be
half of Japan concerning the presence
of the Russian second Pacific squadron
in Kamranh bay. An official com
munication issued after the meeting
Dr. Motono, minister of Japan, has tak
en steps to call the attention of the min
ister of foreign affairs to the reported
presenoe of Russian vessels in Kamranh
bay. At the ministry of foreign affairs
it is stated that Minister Motono's action
does not take the character of a formal
protest against alleged violation of neu
trality by France relative to the Russian
fleet. The Japanese minister particularly
desired to obtain from the French govern
ment, as he had done before the Baltic
squadron passed Cherbourg and more re
cently when it sojourned off Madagascar,
some formal assurance that France would
continue to observe strict neutrality.
These assurances evidently seemed more
and more indispensable to Japan as tho
Russian fleet approached the coast of
Indo-China and entered the theater of
The French government has on fre
quent occasions pointedly affirmed that all
precautions have been taken for the ob
servance of neutrality. Special instruc

on the subject. The minister of foreign
affairs is therefore able to allay the un
easiness Japan has manifested, which has
not been justified up to the present by
any specific act.
It remains for Tokio, to which gov
ernment the French reply was sent to
night, to say whether the assurances
are considered sufficient.
The opinion prevails here that M.

Altho information has been cabled
from Saigon, French Cochin China,that
Admiral Jonquieres, who went to Kam
ranh bay order to assure the ob
servance of French neutrality by the
Eussian Pacific squadron, has returned
to his flagship at Saigon, the dispatch
conveys no information as to whether
Bojestvensky's ships are still in Kam
ranh bay. Neither is there any definite
news regarding the progress eastward
of Vice Admiral Nebogatoff's divirion
of the squadron. While reports that he
has reached the Sunda straits are not
believed, owing to the known slowness
of his vessels, it is considered within
the bounds of possibilities that Eojest
vensky 's lingering in the vicinity of
Kamranh bay indicates tnat Neboga*

Notwithstanding emphatic protests
of some of the newspapers and Bhrieks
of indignation from the jingo press,
British government officials decline to
admit that there is anything in the far
eastern naval situation to cause excite
ment or to show that it approaches an
acute stage. In other words, the for
eign office assumes the attitude of a
much interested spectator of an intense
ly dramatic situation which is ap
proaching a climax in which, by some
mischance, Great Britain might be
called on to play a part.

who swore at the first trial that, while
unloading gravel at the Koch place in
1903 he saw, lying-nn a windowsill in
the Koch barn, ja, hammer of peculiar
appearance, and, when General Childs
showed him the hammer found at the
dead dentist's side, Dingier declared
positively that that was the hammer,he
had seen at the Koch barn. This piece
of evidence was startling, but when Mr.
Abbott of counsel d,for the defense,
questioned the witness he brought out
that the teamster could not remember
nothing else on the autumn day in 1908,
save the hammer. This weakened this
point, but it was counted by the state
as a strong feature of their case.
Dingier Not Needed.
A few weeks ago Dingier left New
Ulm to go to work in North Dakota.
What the state would do to fill the gap
made by this witness, has been a mat
ter of interesting conjecture ever since.
The state believes, however, that it has
evidence, in the testimony of this New
TJlm woman, which will show more con
vincingly than did Dingier's testimony,
that the hammer with which Gebhardt
was slain had been in Koch's possession
prior to the crime.

Gebhardt was killed in his office in New
Ulm last November. No, Mr. Covell
didn't. Did he know that the man ac

No, he didn't. He leaned back in his

Then Mr. Somerville wanted to get

from Mr. Covell the information that,
after giving the court the shock, he
really had "said just a few words,
mebbe about the case. Did he inquire
how it happened, the homicide No,
he answered. Or who did itf No,
again. And he never knew that Dr. Koch
was tried for the crime? No, sir.
Force of habit prompted counsel to
inquire, then, of this man who knew

This section has stood most determined
ly against any revision of the Dingley
tarifffor selfish commercial reasons.
This is the section which brought about
the defeat of the Etamerous reciprocity
treaties negotiated under the McKinley
administration by Commissioner Kasson.
This is the section which has thus far
prevented reciprocity with Canada.
All these results have been secured
thru the representatives of that section
in the senate. If these representatives
desire to remain in public life they
must continue to reflect the sentiment
of their respective states as it is
crystallized by the powers that be with
in those states.
How Constituents Rule.
As illustrating the way in which sen
ators are the special representatives of
home industries, and as such come into
conflict with sentiment from other
states, Senator Hansbrough of North
Dakota may be mentioned. During the
late session of congress, at the instiga
tion of the wheat growers his state
this class being the dominant factor in
state affairs-ne endeavored to secure
the enactment of a law which would in
terfere with the plan of the secretary
of the treasury, to extend the drawback
privilege to flour intended for the ex
port trade. He became conspicuous as
the champion of this proposed legis
lation, and that he did not succeed was
due to Wo fault of his.
There was no suspicion of money in
fluence in this case, but it is not "diffi
cult to understand that if one senator,
standing almost alone, can* do as much
as Hansbrough did last winter, a group
of senators, of greater influence, ana the
representatives of millions of invested
capital, can do whatever they please,
within certain* broad lines.
The United States senate is far from
being a "rich man's club," but it is
not at all far from control by eastern
millionaires of the north Atlantic sea
board, and this will probably be the
case until senators are elected by direct
vote and there is a change in tho rules
which govern senate debate.
It is not the millionaires in the senate
who are harmful, but the millionaires
outside that body, who hold in the hol
low of their hand the fate of senators.
The millionaire members are as respon
sive to this corrupt pressure as those
who are poor. It is the "rich man's
club" which has helped make the sen
ate unresponsive to public sentiment.

more or less kidney trouble, and within

the use of the medicine and noted a
decided improvement after taking
Swamp-Root only a short time.
I continued its use and am thankful
to say that I am entirely cured and
strong. In order to be very sure about
this, I had a dootor examine some of
my water today and he pronounced it
all risht and in splendid condition.
