PANIC ON STEAMER,
Passengers on Eastland Almost Cap
CHICAGO, July IS. Lack of the usual
amount of .water ballast and an excep
tionally larc crowd of passengers on
the steamer Eastland combined to causo
much uneasiness on the return nip from
South Haven laet night. When the
homeward voyage was begun, late hi
the afternoon, all the paswngers tried
to find scats on the shady side of the
boat. This caused the steumer to lint
heavily to starboard. Member? of the
crew hastened to closo the lower port
liolep, while many women secured life
preservers and crowded to the steamer's
This caused the boat to settle further
to ytarhoard. and wmo of the passcngera
became thoroughly alarmed.
The crew was at once mustered by the
olHcers and an attempt was made to
reaoon with the frightened men and wo
men. The nassengerp refused to obey
orders and finally. In order to drive
them away from the rail the fire hose
was ued. 7t proved effective and the
crowd went to the lower deck.
The women were persunded Into the
smoking-rooms of the cabin, and ivere
reassured by the officers, while the men
were talked to outside by other mem
bers of the crew. The ship held to Its
course despite the petitions of the pas
sengers to turn round, and finally
reached Chicago. Many of the women
1 Insisted on wearing life preservers un
til the vessel reached its- dock.

BRIBERY IN PUBLIC LIFE.
Plank 011 Boodle Issue to Be Pre
sented Missouri Democrats.
JEFFERSON CJTY, Mo.. July IS.
The following Is from the plank on the
boodle Issue, which the representative
of Attorney Jnrnes W. Folk will ask thc
State Democratic convention to incor
porate In the platform tomorrow:
Tho paramount issue before the people
of Missouri Is the eradication of brlberv
from public life in Otis State.
We sincerely declare reluntless war
against corruptlonlsts, and here announce
the decree that there Is no room hi the.
Democratic party of Missouri for a
boodler 01 corruptlonlat of anv sort. Wo
n-pudiate their support, invlic them to
leave the Slute. and offer thorn shelter
only In the penitentiary if they remain.
Wc have eonlldoncf- In tho honesty of
the people, juid to them wo appeal for
success. Wo Invite all honest people to
join us In this crusade against corruption.
It Is the vital principle Involved in this
campaign, and on this Issue we stako the
hope of the Democratic party of Missouri.
Circuit Attorney Joseph Folk of St.
Louis seems practicaJly asmred of the
nomination for Governor. Even his most
determined adversaries cannot at this
time name a probable candidate to de
feat him. There Is every indication that
the gathering will prove one of the most
interesting from a political standpoint
ever held in Missouri. The Folk men
nre trying to force the selection of Con
gressman Vandlver, the manager of
Folk's- campnlgn. as temporary chair
man. This has aroused the antagonls-m
of the State committee and a bitter fight
has been the result.

Court Finds no Fraud
Husband Falls in His At
tempt to Prevent D
cree to Her.
But Fight Is Not Finished, and "As
tonishing' Discoveries" Are
NEW YORK, July IS. Absolute free
dom In a few days for Lillian Nordica
from her husband, Zoltan Doeme, from
whom she has obtained an interlocu
tory decree, was foreshadowed in a de
cision handed down by the Appellate 1
Division of the Supreme court, and
printed 'briefly in The Tribune last
Thursday, sotting aside an order
recently entered by Justice Mac
Lean, appointing former Justice Jo
seph F. Daly a referee to take
testimony in Doeme's plea to have the
decree set aside. The diva obtained
her decree, the outcome of dire domes
tic disharmony, on January 29. Her
provisional liberty probably would
huve been made permanent three
months after that dale had not her
husband, also a singer. Intervened with
his plea of fraud and collusion.
Now that this plea has been set aside,
Mme. Nordlca's lawyer, Albert B.
Boardman. thinks that the last bar of
the domestic dissonance has been
played and time the single harmony of
his client's life will be resumed in a
few days by the confirmation of her
decree. On the other hand, Mr.
Doeme's legal representative, George
Gordon Hastings, said when lie heard
of the decision that the legal jangle
will be kept up, and promised further
dissonance that would "astound the
As Court Sees It.
"Collusion, as that term is used in
matrimonial actions," says the decis
ion, "is an agreement between the
husband and wife to obtain a judgment
dissolving the marriage contract,
which judgment, if the facts were
known to the court, would not be
granted. It Is not even suggested that
the nets charged and proved against
the defendant were connived at by the
plaintiff or that she hud uny knowl
edge of their commission until long af
terward. Nor Is it even Intimated that
the evidence by which such nets were
proved was furnished by the defend
ant, or that it was not sufficient to
justify the referee in reaching his con
clusion. "The testimony of the defendant
himself satisfactorily establishes that
there was no arrangement between
him and the plaintiff by which the
acts were committed or that she ob
tained the evidence through any effort
of his. What Is pointed out as con
stituting the collusion Is that at the
beginning of this action three other ac
tions were brought by the plaintiff
against the defendant by which his
funds, amounting to $00,000, were tied
up and that he was coerced into con
senting to a divorce. A slight consid
eration of this claim demonstrates that
It Is without foundation."
It was shown by the evidence that
since their marriage Mme. Nordica had
Intrusted more than SSOO.OOO of her
earnings to the care of her husband, a
part of which was deposited to his
credit in the New Amsterdam National
bank and a rart with Strong, Sturgis
& Co. Mme. Nordica brouglit an action
aeralnst Doeme for a creneral account
ing, an action against the New Am
sterdam National bank, and an action
against Strone, Sturgis & Co. to im
press the moneys held by them. These
suits, were compromised by the pay
ment of ?20,000 to the plaintiff, who
waived her claim to the rest of the
money in the two institutions.
"It has never been asserted," says
Justice McLaughlin, "that the settle
ment of financial transactions by hus
band and wife, when a suit for divorce
is pending, constitutes a badge of fraud
or collusion. The defendant made an
affidavit at the" time the suits were
compromised that they had no connec
tion with the suit for divorce. He now
says that ailldavlt was not true. Had
all the facts In. the compromising- of the
three suits been known to the court,
however, the result would not have
"The defendant now says, he Is not
and never has been a resident of New
York, nor has his wife, and that hence
lhe courts had no Jurisdiction In the
ca-se. In his answer previously filed he
had admitted the residence of the
lite Justice holds that Doeme and
his wife have lived In New York the
greater part of the time since their
marriage, that they have kept a safe
deposit box in New York for their
Joint use. that they returned from
Philadelphia in the winter of 1S9S and
1S99 with the. avowed intention of mak
ing New York their permanent place of
abode, that they actually carried out
their Intention in tills regard, taking
an apartment in New York, and that
when Mme. Nordica was billed in
Munich as living In London she had It
changed to read "New York."
"After a careful consideration ofxthls
record," sums up Justice McLaughlin,
"I am convinced thure Is no merit In
the defendant's application; that it
was not xnsAi in good faith; that Lha
Interlocutory judgment was not ob
tained by fraud or collusion."
Diva Jubilant. '
Mme. Nordica, who returned from
Newport a few days ago, left town for
Lonp Island after she heard she had
won her case. It wns learned at her
home, 121 Madison avenue, that the
opera singer was Jubilant because of
Zoltan Doeme, who Is spending the
summer at Manhattan Beach, could not
be seen there last evening, as he Is
away on a fishing trip. Mr. Hastings,
his counsel, when seen In his otlicej No.
10 West Twenty-third street, said:
"My client will by no means lot the
case rest. Within the pa.st two weeks
evidence of an astounding nature has
come into our hands. I shall immedi
ately take action on my client's behalf,
and we will lay bare facts that will
astonish the community.
"I.t Is a decision of far reaching' Im
portance to all persons seeking a di
vorce. It has the effect of making
New York the easiest State in the
country to get n divorce in. Even in
South Dakota a residence of six
months is necessary", while, under this
decision, a woman need only rent a
furnished apartment and the next day
bring- action for divorce."

Defendant Came in by Way of Vic

Tal How must return to the land of
his fathers, according tqtha. order made
yesterday by United States Commis
sioner Twomey.' Tal claims that he wns

terly failed to present proof In support
of the claim, aeide from his own word,
and his final hearing yesterday before
the Commissioner resulted In the' find
ing that he muyt be deported.

The evidence shows that Tal How
came over from China last November,
landing at Victoria, B. C, from whence
ho went to Port Plenry. on the Canadian
line. There he was taken before Unit
ed States Commissioner Dudley and was
admitted to this country on his repre
sentation that he was an American citi
zen. His claim was that lie was born
in this country, but that while yet an
Infant he way taken to China by his
parents, and lived there until his re
turn last fall. After his- su-rlval here the
local Immigration inspectors took up
bin case, and his hearing has been con
tinued from time to time, upon his rep
resentation that he war about to re
ceive evidence from California In sup
port of his claim. When his hearing
came up yesterday and it way seen that
lie had made no progress whatever In
establishing' his case, the Commissioner
became convinced that he was simply

The Chinese has ten duys in which to
appeal the case to the Federal Dis-lrict
court, and it is believed that such an
appeal will be made through his? at

to the absence of Judge Marshall on his
vocation, the appeal would probably not
be heard until some time in Septem

bers of the Chinese colony contribute the
necessary funds to defend the accused
as long1 as there is the slightest hope, of
his being permitted to remain in the

INQUEST OVER L00MIS.
Jury R-etums Finding, "Found Dead,
Wn3hcd Up by the Sea."
KINGSBRIDGE, Devonshire. July 18.
'Found dead, washed up by the sea
In Blgbury bay, Devonshire," was the
verdict today of the Coroner's jury In
the Inquest on the remains of F. Kent
Loomls. The evidence was very In
conclusive, and wholly conjectural, as
pointed out by the Coroner when he ad
vised this verdict, adding that, although
death was caused by a blow, there was
nothing to justify, the suspicion that It
wns foully administered. Consul
Stephens of riymouth hap charge of
the body, which l In a fair state of
preservation, it will be emblatned and
i?ent home for burial as early as prac
ticable. Dr. Webb, one of the medical men ap
pointed to examine 'the body, testified
that there was a contused wound below
and behind the right ear. indicated by
the extravasation of blood in the scalp,
a rupture of the covering of the brain
There wns also a general bruise in
volving the scalp and the Integument
of the bruin om the left side above the
oar. Both injuries, in the doctor's opin
iqn, were caused before death.
Dr. Webb added that Loomis might
have been stunned and have fallen Into
the- water nnd been drowned. It was
not a sharp wound, but possibly the re
sult of a fall 6n his head. Either he
Struck SOmethlnir or vTnAMilnf. tnirl.-
his head. The blow was not Inflicted
after death. Supposing the deceased
had ascended on deck nt midnight to
take the nir and gone to nn unpro
tected space where the davits? were and
he fell, that would account for the
wound. He died as the result of a
blow, but there was- nothing1 to indi
cate how the blow, which was a very
heavy one, had been inflicted.
The blow seemed to have been s-truck
in a horizontal direction. The wound
was about an inch and three-quarters
long- and pear shaped. Replying- to Con
sul Stephens, Dr. Webb said the blow
might have causc-d death If Loomis had
not fallen into the water. He thought
it was Improbable that Loomls would
have recovered from the blow even If
he had not fallen into lhe- water.
Cdnsul Stephens explained to the
Coroner that If the time at which
Loomls's watch had stopped was Amer
ican time It meant 1 o'clock here, which
was about the time the Kaiser Wilhelm
II. reached Plymouth on June 20. None
of the official papers carried by Loomls
was lost or stolen.
The Coroner summed up lengthily and
advised the jury to llnd an open ver
dict. The Jury then returned a verdict
that the deceased was Frederick Kent
Ltjomis and that he was found dead,
in Blgbury bay, there being no evidence
to show how he met hif death.

CHICAGO, July IS. Although ex
pressing faith In the strikers' ability to
win, should the packing-house wage
struggle become a test of endurance.
the strike leaders were today still in u
receptive mood. On returning from
East St. Louis today, President Donne!
1 y declared he would hold no further
conference with the packers unless the
packers asked for a meeting-. He also
said there would be no effort to call out
the livestock handlers, for the reason
that the strikers were unwilling to
cause widespread suffering among the
cattle now in pens that must neces
sarily follow the neglect such a strike
should bring about.
As to Sympathetic Strike.
As soon as President Donnelly ar
rived, he met Homer D. Call, Interna
tionnl secretary and treasurer of the jH
Butohcrs' organisation, and went into
a conference with Joseph W. Morton
and C. L. Champ! otllcials of the sta
ftlonaxy firemen's union. Then Presi
dent Donnelly met business agent Me
Clelland of the elevator men, oilers and
millwright helpers. McClelland called
a special meeting- of his organization
for tomorrow afternoon, at which It
will be decided whether to strike.
What Donnelly Says.
"This strike can not be broken unless
the packers come to proper terms." said
Mr. Donnelly. "They are talking- about
the great business they are doing. Why, jH
they are not doing 2 per cent of normal jH
business now, and I know for a fact
that Armour killed only sixteen hogs
from the time the strike started until
Saturday night. In St. Louis the one
trust packing plant is tied up tighter
than a drum., and the independent IH
packet's are dedng a rushing bushier- jl
running both day and night. Wo are
sending them all the union men they jH
need In East St. Louis. jl
Independents Reap Reward.
'Jin Chicago the Independent packers
and butchers are reaping benefits from
the strike. I intend to send big gangs
of cattle butchers tonight to Independ-
enl plants in Philadelphia. New York
and Buffalo. We make no secret of our
de&ire to sive all the help we can to
the Independent, fair, unlon-employlnc IB
companies, for they are helping us In ll
our fight. We want the public to suf
fer as little as possible."
From the packers side came a state- IB
ment that about GOO more men were at
work than were employed yesterday.
Receipts of the day were the largest
since the strike began, consisting f
S000 cattle. 10.000 Jiogs and 3000 sheep.
Renewal of peace negotiations wns

the opinion that the contest will resolve

In the prices of meat to retail dealers
