By International News Sendee.
CHICAGO, Oct. 4. Fifty thousand
I is a conservative estimate of tho
J number of persons who cither
hoard or saw Governor Wilson
speak at towns and cities along the Fort
Wayne route of the Pennsylvania rail
road today. The governor spoke at Ko
komo, Peru, Plymouth and Gary, Ind.,
and completed tbo day by mooting mem
bers of Hie campaign committee in Chi
cago, where ho arrived at 8 o'clock. At
8;30 tonight, the governor left in his pri
vate car for Omaha, where ho will apeak
tomorrow. In Chicago tho governor was
the guest of some frionds at dinner at
tho University club.
It was one of the most effective cam
paigning trips that the candidate has
yet made. His route had beon well ad
vertised in advance and the various
communities were thoroughly prepared
i for tho candidate's visit.
Open Air Meetings.
Scores of automobiles were waiting at
each station when tho governor arrived
and he and his party were escorted from
the train to the meeting places open
air in each instance with tho accom-
l panimont of brass bands aud street pa
rades. At Plymouth there was a special
I! escort bj- eighty cadots of the Culver
1 Military acadomy, including the famous
I Black Horso cavalry that generally
I leads the inaugural parades at Washlng-
ton.
I There was wild enthusiasm all along
H . the route, which so impressed the candi-
I date that he repeatedly declared that he
I felt certaiu that the Democratic na-
1 tional ticket would bo elected.
At Gary, the model city established
t, by the United States Steel corporation
four years ago, which is now a
I thriving beehive of industry, Governor
Wilson launched an. attack against the
I steel corporation and his utterances
1 were vociferously applauded by his au-
I dience, composed chiefly of employees of
I that corporation.
I GetB Into Audience.
I; There was a crowd of about 6000 at
I this meeting. A flag-decorated platform
I had been erected for tho candidate, but
when he was introduced he left it and
I strode down into the crowd.
I "I am coming down to get near
I y" he said, "I don't want to be
with those dignified men up there.
"When I was told that I was to
1 sneak in Gary," he continued, "T said
I that I understood the United States
I Steel corporation was all for the Bull
1 Moose, but J. was immediately corrected
I and informed tbat the men employed bv
i that corporation were over 21 years o'f
J age and able to take care of them-
1 selves. "
I The governor attacked the Steel cor-
1 poration aB one of the beneficiaries oi
II the taritt: and he asked:
"I want to ask you men if it is your
( observation that the employees of the
i United States Steel corporation are
better paid than the average in the
United States?'
"No," came a choms of answers,
; "Everybody knows that wherever it
: is possible they depress wages to the
j lowest lovcl," nducd the governor, and
the crowd yelled, "you're right."
Scorches Third Party,
j The candidate made an interesting
reforencc to the action of the Calif or
' nia courts in throwing the Taft electors
' off the ballot. At Pl3moutb he dc
t clared that the third party leaders had
left the Ecpublicau party in protcs:
p against their methods.
!j "But," he added, "those verv men
i who have flung out of the Republican
I party and say they are no longer in it
E though they arc in it when they can
E 6tay in.it, as witness what has just
been done m California, where thev
I have shut the mcmbore of the family
H e c-cctcfl ticket and captured it
If themselves wherever the family is, so
In ar- n8- majr'ty is concerned, on
I i their side, they arc willing to stay in
1 the. family."
I The governor again attacked both
I Taft and llooscvclt as being equally re-
I sponsible for the conditions which now
5 prevail nnd which the Democratic partv
I proposes to correct.
I Tt is estimated that, including the
I two meetings in Indianapolis 3'cstordav.
I Governor Wilson has addressed Sii.OOO
persons in Indiana within tweuty-four
f hours. All of theso did not hoar him
berausc his voice would not. reach the
1 outer odges of the crowds, but that is
if tho approximate number that attended
his meeting.

Wife Tells Judge Her Rich
Father-in-Law Paid Bills
Till His Death.
By International News Sendee.
CLEVELAND, O... Oct. 4. Testi
mony whispered in the car of
Judge Vickcry today obtained
for Mrs. May Harrington Hanna
Stallo a divorce from Edmund K. Stallo,
former wealthy New York nnd Cincin
nati business man.
So low did Mrs. Stallo and tho two
women "who testified in her behalf speak
that their words could not be heard
three feet away from the judge's bench.
At the conclusion of tho testimony a
decree was granted Mrs. Stallo on
grounds of extreme cruelty and gross
neglect. Her name prior to her mar
riage to Stallo, Mrs. May Harrington
Hanna, was restored.
Mrs. Stallo, dressed quietly in black,
testified that Stallo had squandered
$8000 of her money.
"He never supported me," she de
clared. The father of his first wife,'
Alexander McDonald, paid our bills in
New York until ho died. Then 1 paid
them."
Mrs. Stallo 's testimony was corrobor
ated by her sister, Mrs. Snyder, and a
woman who lived in the Stallo home as
companion. Depositions from dressmak
ers in New York declared Stallo had re
fused to pay his wife's bills.
The Stallos were married in ,1002 and
lived together until 1909. Mrs. Stallo

Cleveland, but got a divorce from him
twelve years ago. Hanna has been mar
ried twice since that time.
religion, but many of us doubt the decla
rations made during intense religious ex
citement. "Wc do not doubt the statements and
conduct of men when In ofrice because
their statements and conduct are governed
by the usual and normal spirit which
governs thought and action. But during
a political campaign we have a right to
compare the man's statements and actions
upon the stump with his statements and
actions In office in ordor to determine not
whether the man Is honest, but whether
he has not intoxicated himself with the
excitement of political campaign.
"In my Judgment certain men now
seeking the suffrage of the people as
president of the United States and gover
nor of the state of Indiana arc the vic
tims of sclf-intoxlcatlon. President Roose
velt and ex-Senator Beveridge during the
long period of their holding office in the
United States were so closely allied with
the vicious tendencies in the economic
life of the people and were ho active In
defending tho trusts, despising the law
and serving Perkins, Morgan and Harrl
man, that our people may well Inquire
what has come over the spirit of their
dreams.
"When tlw campaign Is over and self
Intoxication has passed away will this
better self disappear, and will the old
theories of thought and conduct which,
In the past years, guided and controlled
them again take possession of their offi
cial lives provided they are In office? May
we not think and reasonably expect that
the Perkinses, Morgans and the TTarrl
mans will Hit close to the throne If
these men again be given power?"
POINTS FINGER OF
' SCORN AT MORGAN
WICHITA. Kan., Oct. 4. .1. P. Morgan
came In for scathing denunciation In Wil
liam .1. Bryan's trip across central Kan
sas today. Prom Llndsborg. vlicre he
began the day, to Wichita, where he
ended tonight. Mr., Bryan kept up a
steady attack upon Mr. Morgan and
characterized him a "patriot No. 2."
"Perklnn is patriot No. I." said Bryan
In his address at Llndsborg. "Perkins Is
now neglecting his business to elect a
president who will look after the trust
magnate's children. I nsBlgn second
place to Mr. Morgan, the distinguished
financier, who will, therefore, enter the
cell of the public memory as Patriot No.
"Mr. Morgan declares he gives to cam
paign committees purely out of regard for'
the public welfare. lie does not glv
to Democratic campaign funds simply be
cause he regards Democratic succeEB 3
a menace to tho country's welfare.
"It will shame the selfish and Fordid
to look, upon this self-carved statue stand
ing out against the sky Morgan, the un
selfish, the disinterested , tho pntriotlc
citizen who devotes all his spare timo
to purchasing the election of proper pres
idential candidates."
At "Wellington Mr. Bryan said:
"Roosevelt is not a pioneer In reform.
For sixteen years whenever I havo been
out fighting Wall street methods I have
felt the stlrig of his lash upon my back."
QUOTES CANDIDATE
AGAINST HIMSELF
BINGHAMTON, N. Y.. Oct. 4 Gover
nor Johnson in an address here tonight
attempted to show his audience that Gov
ernor Wilson's present attitude toward
union labor is not the same that he took
In 1D09 while connected with Princeton
university.
The California executive spoke in part
as follows:
"I read the other day In a Massa
chusetts newspaper friendly to the Demo
cratic candidate for president hlo utter
ances In New England in reference to the
right of labor to organize. I gathered that
he was endeavoring to express a great
sympathy with union labor. Vividly there
came to me the words of the Democratic
candidate, uttered at the Princeton com
mencement In 1909.
"He then said: 'The tendency of the
modern Inbor union is to give employers
as little labor as possible for the amount
they receive. No one is suffered to do
more than the average workmen can do.
No one may work out of hours at all
or volunteer anything beyond the mini
mum. I need not point out to you how
economlcallv disastrous such a regulation
of labor is.' It is so unprofitable to the
employer that In some grades It will pres
ently not be worth while to attempt any
thing at all our economic supremacy may
be lost because the country grows more
and more full of unprofitable sen-Ice.'
"I leave to von without comment the
views of Professor Wilson In 1909 and
thoso of Candidate Wilson In 1912. Which
constitute the real views, of Mr. Wilson
you may determine for yourselves.
Governor Johnson spoke here In the
opera house. During the day he made
speeches at Wayland, Bath and Corning.
This was the last day In "P-stat terri
tory. He left tonight for New York City.

SUBMARINE SENT TO
BOTTOMS PERISH
Hamburg Liner Amerika Cuts
Little Boat in Two Off the
Coast of Kent.
DOVER, Enpland, Oct. 4. Fifteen
officers and men of the British navy
were drowned today by tho sinking of
the submarine "B-2," after sho had
been cut in two by the Hamburg
American liner Amerika off tho coast
of Kent.
The commander of tho vessel, Lieut.
Percy B. O'Brien, was lost. His sec
ond in command, Lieut. Richard I.
Pulloyne, was rescued. Ho was tho
only survivor, and was utterly ex
hausted whou picked up.
The disaster in which tho B-2 sunk
occurred while tho third patrol flotilla of
six submarines was maneuvering oft tho
coast of Kent. The liner Amerika ap
pearst to have cut the submarine In
halves.
Lieut. Richard I. Pulleyne, second in
command, was the only man among the
crew of sixteen to be saved. He wa3
found floating in the sea too exhausted
to say more than that "the submarine Is
cut In two. I went down a mile."
The B-2 left Dover harbor at 5 o'clock
this morning. The Amerika stood by af
ter the collision and threw the life buoys
overboard, while a number of torpedo
boats, after being Informer of the
accident by wireless, searched tho sea for
hpurs. None of the other members of the
crow, however, was found, and no sign of
the wreckage was discovered. ,
The Amerika then proceeded on her
voyage to Southampton and Cherbourg on
her way to New York.
This Is the sixth disaster to British
submarines, each of them involving tho

MORE EVIDENCE AS

vious to its development, but ho thoncht
it had greatly depreciated as a result
of tho development work.
At times there was an amusing ex
change botweon Senator Kcnrns and. Mr.
Critchlow. When Mr. Critchlow had
failed to got tho sonator to fix the pres
ent valuation of tho ground he asked
him if ho expected to express an opin
ion to shareholders of tho Coalition com
pany ns to the amount to be paid whon
tho Andes is put up for sale.
"Oh. when the. timo comes I will cross
the bridge," was the reply made
to this question by Senator Ivcarns. Ho
continuod by saying that when the
proper timo came ho would take this
mattor up with his associatos in the
Coalition company.
Brooks on the Stand.
After Superintendent .Tames Mara of
tho Silver King Consolidated Mining
company had. been recalled yester
day morning for a few min
utes to get somo of his ideas as to
tho quartzito in the Andes claim,
Charles P. Brooks, engineer for tho
Coalition was tho first witness to bo
called by tho defense. Mr. Brooks said
he had been connected with tho Coali
tion company since its inception, and its
president for a number of years previ
ously. He said that ho had been en
gaged in mining since 1870 and had. giv
en practical' all of his timo for a num
bor of yoars to engineering work in tho
Park City district.
Mr. Brooks testified that ho had made
a survey of all tho workings shown him
in tho Andes claim up to a recent date,
but had learned that thcro was somo
work which ho had not been shown. In
explaining with reference to tho under
ground workings ot' the Consolidated, ho
said that there were a number of devel
opments which wero not shown on the
map lilcd by tho Consolidated company,
along with other evidence which had
been submitted by plaintiff. Ho offered
in evidence a plat of longitudinal pro
jection, as it was termed, and wont into
detail with rcforonco to the various
workings that had been omitted. He de
scribed all workings minutely and par
ticularly those of tho 1550-foot level, to
gether with various drifts, raises, cross
cuts and othor workings connected with
this level.
Found No Pay Ore in Andes.
With rcferenco to the existence , of
ores of a commercial grade in paying
quantities, Mr. Brooks testified that ho
knew of no such deposits in tho Andes
ground and was quito sure that ho had
soon none in any of tho underground
workings. Ho said that tho oxistenco
of pay ore had beon provon from with
in a short distanco of tho Andes ground,
in Coalition territory, extending oast
for a mile or more. IIo was again re
called in the afternoon for a short time
and explained tho various workings, in
portions of tho Coalition ground, which
may havo somo boaring on tho case.
Found No Pay Ore.
George D. Blood, superintendent of the
Sliver King Coalition, was next called.
He said that he had started mining work
In Parle City In 1892. being Hrst at the
Ontario mine and later at the mill plant.
He had made a careful study ot tho
geology of a great portion of the camp,
and visited and Inspected all the mines
to which he had been given access, lie
testified that ho had been in all under
ground workings of the Andes claim,
with the exception of the development
Mr Brooks had referred to, and after
making every effort to .find ore In com
mercial quantities he had failed to llnd
Its existence in any of the workings.
Judge Dickson had Mr. Blood take up
each working separately. Mr. Blood cov
ered the various showings of ore closely
and said that he had found stringers of
from six inches in width down to noth
ing. Ho was of the opinion that the
Ande3 ground had not been enhanced in
value as a result of the development
work done by the Consolidated, but, to
the contrary, he thought the speculative
value had been depreciated, Inasmuch as
ore in paying quantities had not been
found, to tho beat of his knowledge. He
said that before this work was done
the claim had a greater value to
the prospective purchaser. He said tnai
by reason of its close proximity to de
veloped ore bodies In paying quantities,
previous to Its development. It made a
very attractive proposition to mining men
familiar with conditions of tho camp and
mining generally.
Value Ground at $10,000.
Previous to tho Andes being opened
up, Mr. Blood said, he was of life opin
ion that a reasonable speculative value
for the ground would have been 5100,000.
Inasmuch as extensive development work
had been done, and no ore shown to ex
ist In paying quantities, he felt that its
valuation had been depreciated $90,000
and that he would place its market
valuation at about $10,000, but no more
than this amount.
William A. Wilson, a graduate of Co
lumbia university and an engineer of a
number of years of practical mining ex
perience, was next called. He explained
that his experience hud been extended
over this period in mining and milling
and that he was more or less acquainted
with the geology of Park City. He said
that after carefully examining the under
ground workings In tho Andes ho had
failed to find any commercial ore bodies
In paying quantities, and the workings in
this ground were quite extensive. He
found the deposits to be bunchy, and ho
considered that the workings had de
preciated tho value of the ground very
materlallv, because the Inference of the
possibilities or ore occurrences had large
ly been removed by the development work
performed.
Work Was Thorough.
Mr. Wilson testified that the explora
tory work had been thorough, that the
Anderson raise was good work, but would
not advise upon Its continued develop
ment, as the workings would extend Into
other ground not owned by the Consoli
dated company. He said that whllo thora
might be a chunce that ore would be
found In paying quantities In portions of
this unexplored ground, existing condi
tions did not justify the continuation of
development work in this property.
He explained further that he had boon
Informed that fiOOO tons of ore had been
mined from this ground at a cost of 5300
a ton, and that assuming this were
true. It certainly Old not justify tho Con
solidated company In continuing this
work.
About lSOCr Mr. Wilson said, ho had
been Informed that the Andes and
Montezuma claims could be purchased for
S10.000. While J50.000 might he consid
ered a fair valuation for this ground
previous to any development work.
Its valuation, he said, had practical
ly been eliminated by reason of this
development falling to make any Qrc ex
posures Jn paying quantities. He could
not find any conditions now In tho Andes
with which lo compare the Parsons
stope In the Coalition territory, and at
best ho thought tho valuation had de
preciated until It would not now be worth
to exceed 510,000.
.fudge Dickson asked Mr. Wilson wheth
er, assuming that the Consolidated ld
expended $25,000 thus far this year
In mine operations and extracted ore to
the valtif of S1H0, ho would be using
good Judgment as a mining engineer If
ho advised the company to discontinue
development work? Mr. Wllpon replied to
this by saying that ho would not be ac
cused of using good judgment unless he
did advise tho discontinuation of work.
Leggat Makes Estimate.
.T. W. Leggat. a graduate of the Wash
ington university at St. Louis, Mo., was
flie next witness called for the Coalition
company. His views were similar to
those of othor engineers examined during
the dav as to the fact that tho specula
tive valuation of tho Andes ground had
greatly depreciated as a result of the
work dono on It. Ho explained that he
could not give a valuation on the ground
previous to Us being opened up, as he
was not familiar with valuation in that
vicinity when thin condition existed
However, ho said that, assuming that
JfiO.OOO was a fair valuation for the prop
erty before this development work was
performed. Its present valuation was
practically nil, but possibly It was worth
as much as $10,000 certainly not moro
than this amount.
Mr. Leggat explained further that he
had made an examination of the Andes
workings and had failed to find any ore
of a commercial grade in paying quanti
ties. When pressed for a statement as to
whether or not he would advise the pur
chase of the ground under existing con
ditions for 5i0,000, Mr Leggat quickly
replied that ho would not-
Senator Kearns on Stand.
Senator Kearns was the last witness
called during tho morning and had fin
ished his testimony by noon. Tho only
other testimony presented was given by
Mr. Brooks, who was recalled for a short
time during the afternoon. At he con
clusion of Mr. Brooks, takin'g of testi
mony before tho master in chancery was
at an end. Senator Kcarns'a examina

as aro accessible? A. In a general way,
yea.
Q. I will ask you whether or not you
havo found any deposits of oro there at
the timo of your last examination, which,
In your Judgment, would pay tho cost of
extraction and markotlng? A. No. sir.
Q. When was your last visit to the
property last underground visit.
A. Last Friday.
Q State whether In your jndgmont
the value of the Andes claim has been
enhanced or "depreciated by the under
ground workings done therein? A. It has
not been enhanced any.
Cross-examination.
Under cross-examination by Mr.
Critchlow, Senator Kearns testified as
follows:
Q. Has It been depreciated? A. Yes,
sir.
Q. How much? A. I don't know.
Q. How much in your judgment?
A. I would not cstlmato how much.
Q. 1 will havo to aak you to estimate
it if you say that It has been depre
ciated. You mean depreciated in dollars
and cents as to its market value, do you
not? A. That Is speculative. I would
have paid moro advised my company to
pny moro before this work was done
than T would advise them to pay now.
At that time, if you will permit me.
Mr. Critchlow, they were mining and
markotlng ore at the cast end, south end
and west end of this; and It had a pros
pective valuo at that time when I. would
have advlBed my company to pay a good
price for it. Recent developments and
work dono thorein, as I understand here
and have reason to believe from the tes
timony, produced 522,000 and cost $178.-
000 to produce It, and I would not want
to go against that kind of a game. So
1 would have advised and paid more for
the ground before this work was done
than I would now.
Q. How much? A. I don't know as
little as I could get It.
Tells of Depreciation.
Q. Now, you apeak of the deprecia
tion. You mean In dollars and cents, do
you not? You think of tho depreciation
that you say has occurred in terms of
dollars and cents. You do not put some
sentimental valuation on It? A. You
have had holdings In your lifetime that
were valuable by reason of the conditions
and circumstances and developments, es
pecially In mines, and after the develop
ment had been carried on to this extent
would be shown that they had depreciat
ed a great deal, but that maybe you could
not measure. It Is a matter of the con
ditions In having- ore on three sides that
was produced and marketed, that mado
this ground valuable.
Q. Now, I would llko to have yon an
swor the question When you speak of
depreciation you mean depreciation In
money valuo, don't you? A. Yes, sir.
Q. And you measure money value by
dollars and cents? A. Yes coin.
Q. Coin? A. Yes. sir.
Q. Now, how much would you say In
dollars and cents has been this deprecia
tion of this property by reason of the
work dono by tho Silver King Consoli
dated Mining company? A. I don't know.
Q. How much in your judgment has it
been If you don't know absolutely what
is your opinion about It?
Declines to Fix Price.
A. I have Just given It. I would not
pay for this last four years' development
since this work started and carried on
for five years according to the showing
made here. I would not have paid so
much for that claim as before when min
ing was being done on three sides of it
Q. How much would you pay? A. I
don't know, I don't know Just as little
as I could get It
Q. Just as llttlo as possible? A. Yes.
Q. And If you were called upon to ad
vlso your directors and stockholders you
would tell them at tho present time, In
your Judgment, the proper amount to pay
for tho Andes claim In Its present con
dition with tho workings there? ' A. It
has never been tendered to mo for sale,
and I have nevor brought that question up
and I am unablo to state just what I
would do.
Q. Do you refuse to state In terms of
dollars and cents how much has beon
tho depreciation of this property by rea
son of that work? A. For tho reason
I don't know,
Q. Do you refuse to give your opinion
as to tho amount of depreciation? A. I
am unable to -state just what it was.
Q. Do you refuse to givo your opinion
as to the amount of that depreciation?
A. With this explanation, yes. I would
not pay as much now as I would then.
Q. Do you refuse to place the amount
of that depreciation In terms of dollars
and cents? A. I state I am unable to do
so.
May Cross Bridge Later.
Q. Do you state that you are unable
to give any opinion whatever? A.
Well,, as you know I can give the truth,
the circumstances and conditions, as far
as I know them.
Q. Do you refuse to answer as to
what thn state of your opinion Is in re
gard to the amount of that depreciation
In dollars and rents? A. Yes.
Q. You refuse. Do you expect to ex
press your opinion to the stockholders
