Morgan Shustcr. t,he American treasurer'
general of Persia, whoun administration
of tho department has resulted In the
present complications, and Indemnity for
tho expense Incurred in sending Russian
troop3 to Persia.
Should the dismissal of Mr. Shustcr not
be carried out within forty-eight hours, ;
Russian troops will march on Teheran
and the addlllonul expenses will be added
to tho indemnity. It is stated confident
ly that the national council will not com
ply with thu demands. Mr. Sinister, In
an Interview today, said the cancella
tion of his contract rested entirely with
tho Persian national council. .
"Whatever may bo the feeling of tho

front offered to American prestige, will
bo resented by the United States, as
Mr. Shustcr was recommended for the
poFltion lie holds by tho statu depart
ment at Washington.
The presentation of the Russian ulti

raignment of President Taft'K adminis
tration was made by Senator 'Polndcxter
of Washington, who tonight fired tho
opening gun lu the L,a. Follettc campaign
In North Dakota. In an address here,
Senator Polndextcr aci:uscd President
Taft of repudiating his plcdgo to work
for a tariff revision downward through
his advocacy of tho Payne-Aldrloh tariff
bill, of aiding and alxittlng tho Alaskan
syndicate In tho exploitation of the rc
nourcos Of Alaska, of attempting to read
prosrroHsivo Republicano out of tho party,
or punishing progressive senators and
rcprcsenlatives by withholding patron
age, and of being unduly solicitous of tho
welfare of trusts and combinations of
capital. Mr. Polndcvter said he had been
punished personally by the president for
advocating progr3-'lvo leKlnlatlon.
Tho recall of Minister Crnno from
China, the treaties with tho Central
American republics and tho Balllngor
incident wcro condemned ar. "unprogres
alve." Ho mndo a strong plea" for the

the Intent of the members who cast the
unofficial ballots was perhaps clear, the
procedure was irregular and the commit

The unofficial ballots were cast by
zealous friends of Mr. Child. There were
twcnly-ono ballots rejected by the com
