BLUEBEARD HOCH
DOOMED TO DEATH
Man Accused of Wife Murder,
and Forty Times Married,
Is Found Guilty.
Chicago, May 20.~.Tohann Hoeh, who
by his own confession is several time**
a bigamist and who is charged by the
police with having married at least
forty women in the past fifteen years,
was found guilty of murder late yester
day, and the death sentence recom
mended.
I "Well, I guess it's all off with
John." groaned Hoch, as the verdict
was read in court. It was plain that
[he was greatly affected. He had sat in
[a stooping position, but when the word
["death" was reached he turned pale,

ALARM IN CANAL

Presence of Yellow Scourge on
Isthmus Is Serious Condi
tion, Says Barrett.
New York, May 20.Sanitation and
preservation of health is the one great
problem which confronts the American
authorities in' the Panama canal zone,
according to John Barrett, American
minister to Panama, who arrived today
from Colon.
He considers as alarming the report
of hve cases of yellow fever at Colon*
"alanning," he says, "because up to
the time these cases were reported, no
yellow fever had appeared there, and it
was hoped that tVe situation was in
hand Mr. Bai-rett continues:
I do not believe U. deceiving the
public thede matters. it is far bet
ter that the truth should be known.
Existing conditions on the isthmus pre
sent many difficulties, and while it is
,not a case for pessimism, it is not the
engineering, it is mot the administration
problem that is confronting us. These
are of secondary consideration to the
problem of health and sanitation'. Here

OFF WITH ROWEN
UP GOES LOOMIS
Assistant Secretary of State to Be
Promoted, While Diplomat
Is Dropped.
New York Sun Special Service.
Washington, May 20.Tho the Bow
en-Loomis investigation has not formal
ly been concluded, the president has
made up his mind on the decision. As
sistant Secretary Loomis will be exon
erated and promoted and Minister
Bowen will be dropped from the diplo
matic payroll.
At the first opportunity Mr. Loomis
will be made an ambassador and it is
Eim
robable that a place will be found for
within a few weeks. He may go
to Mexico, which post he has coveted
for a long time. David E. Thompson,
now ambassador to Brazil, has been
S[r.
romised the Mexican embassy when
Conger retires this summer, but it
is possible that he will consent to re
main at Eio Janeiro and accept the first
European vacancy. If Mr. Thompson
will consent to this consent to this arrangement it
probably will be made.
Mr. Loomis is anxious to get away
from the state department as soon as
possible, as his relations with Secre
tary Hay have recently been somewhat
strained, and the president wishes to
promote him while the Venezuelan in
cident is fresh in the public memory
as a further refutation of the Bowen
charges. Mr. Loomis' final re-joinder,
when filed with Secretarv Taft, prob
ably will close the case.

The crime for which Hoch will be led

BEEF JURY RESTS
MAY HAVE FAILED
Investigation of Meat Trust Ad
journed Without Return of
Indictment.
New York Sun Special Service.
Chicago, May 20.The investigation
of the United States grand juiy into
the methods and operations of the largo
packing-house companies has been ad
journed until June 7, without any in
dictments having been returned on the
subiect matter of the investigation.
The reason given for the ad.oarn
ment by the people who conducted the
investigation is the desire of the gov
ernment officials to obtain time to go
ovor the evidence collected. They say
they wish to see if sufficient evidence
has been secured to warrant the find
ing of indictments, to see whether the
evidence is complete in all branches,
and to decide whether the evidence
should be considered as being legally
against corporations or against indi
viduals.
Altho the foregoing is given as the
leason for the adjournment it is gen
erally accepted that the sudden stop
page of the inquiry is due to orders
direct from Washington. It is the be
lief that stories regarding the investi
gation have reached the president, with
the result that peremptory orders were
given to stop it at once and report what
had been done, so that the president
and the attorney general could judge
what was being accomplished, and
whether there was any excuse for the
continuance of the investigation. It
is understood that a report will be taken
to Washington on the subject as soon
as it can be compiled.
It is stated by the federal officials
that when the inquiry is resumed more
evidence may be taken and the whole
matter reopened. But it is the belief
that the present adjournment marks
the end of the investigation, which was
the most important of its kind ever
undertaken by the government.
It is the general opinion
evetn 4n
in
Washington, tha the
affair has been a conspicuous failure.
Worse than that, it has left behind it
Chicago a widespread feeling of in
dignation and resentment at the
methods employed in conducting it.

CHARGE OF UNBUSINESS-LIKE
DEALINGS I N GOPHER MIXUP.
Eetraction is .ike keynote of the
statement issued today by the faculty
committee having eha'rge of the inves
tigation of graft charges in connection
with the 1905 gopher. Byron & Wil
lard, one of the nrms mentioned in the
report of the committee, at once be
gan a counter attack^ threatening pros
ecution unless the charges contained
in the report weie either retracted or
proved.
The committee today savs that any
implied charges against this firm were
wholly unintentional and furthermore
amends its report to make it clear that
no attack is made on the firm.
William A. Willard of the firm said
today: "We at once began a hot attack
on the committee on account of the
charges apparently contained in its re
port. The anewer of the committee is
entirely satisfactory and we are willing
to allow the matter to close where it is.
The trouble was apparently due to the
fact that the report was so poorly word
ed, and constructed in such a bungling
manner that the committee did not
clearly express what it wished to re-
port."
The reply of the committee is as fol
lows: loathe Editor of The ITournal.
The committee of the faculty which
made the report extensively noticed in
the patters of Tuesday morning, desire to
say, that they nape ^xipft in their report

Abbie Bryant, and her mother, Mrs.
Jennie Bryant, made charges and
counter charges against each other in
a contest for the custody of the child.
The hering was upon an order to
show cause why the grandmother should
not give the child over to her mother.
The mother alleges that Edith has been
literally kept a prisoner by Mrs. Abbie
Bryant ever sine'e the recent death of
James Bryant, the child's father.
Mrs. Abbie Bryant alleges that she
has kept the child in accordance with
the expressed wish of her late son,
and that the mother is not a proper
person to have the custody of the girl.
Evidence was introduced tending to
show the immoral character of te

STUDENTS MAKE A HIT
The Norwegian Student Chorus De
lights a Gotham Audience.
The first concert in the United
States of the Norwegian Students'
chorus took place in Cernegie hall, New
York, Thursday evening, May 18.
Every seat was sold long before. The
NeAv York papers all agree that a bet
ter chorus has never been sung in this
country, and when at the close of the
concert the students sang the "Star
Spangled Banner," there was no end
to the enthusiasm.
The chorus had a narrow escape
from marine disaster just before enter
ing New York harbor. At Sandy Hook,
in a thick fog, a collision with the
Cunarder, Caronia, the Kaiser Wilhelm
II., of the German line, and the "Unit
ed States," which carried the students,
was narrowly averted, the captain of
the Caronia being compelled to beach
his vessel in order t*o avoid ramming
tine of the other two.
The reserved seat sale for the audi
torium concert in Minneapolis next

"It is not at all unnatural that the
federal cabinet or the secretary of war
should object to being robbed by the
great trusts of the country, operating
under the shelter of the tariff, and sell
ing at one pricea reasonable oneto
foreigners, and at another pricean ex
tortionate oneto home consumers, in'
eluding the government of the United
Statestheir great benefactorwhich
has freely conferred upon them the priv
ilege of robbing.
"The only thing curious to my mind
is that these men who can see so clearly
the iniquity when it comes to bear as
hardship upon' government itself, can
not see it and will not remedy it, when
bearing hardship upon the people, many
of whom are so much poorer and less
able to withstand extortion than the
government is.
"A startling public object lesson of
the iniquity and wroWg was needed. The
attempt upon the part of the tariff-bred
and tariff-fed trusts to perpetuate the
old, old wrong upon a new customer, to
wit. the government itself, has fur
nished this object lesson, and even a
republican cabinet is seen to revolt.
'The poor, miserable, transparent
veil has been rudely torn for a moment
at any rate. Let people look at the
ugly face under it all, until congress
meets, anyhow. This spectacle will do
them no "harm."
