ttf COURT INFAMOUS
Roosevelt Sends Telegrani to
Secretiiry of Idaho Pro- -gressive
Party,
Special to Tbfc Tribune
BOISE Idaho, Oct. 12. Severely
criticising: the Idaho supreme court for
rendering its recent decision barring
the Progressive party presidential
electors and candidate for Congress
from tho oflicial ballot and making
vigorous appeal to the electors of Idaho
to- fight for their rights, Col. Theodore
Roosovelt tonight for. the first time
made his attitude known, in a caustic
and pointed tolcgram to P.'iul Davis,
secretary of the Idnlio Progressive
part'.
Appeals to, the People.
The colonel's telegram, which is a
direct appeal to the people, is as fol
lows: Chicago, 111-. Oct. ID. Paul Davis.
Secretary Progressive Committee,
Boise. Idaho:
Through you I desiro to appeal to
the men and women of Idaho not to
, permit themselves lo bo disfran
chised, as the court has sought to
disfranchise them. Jt is Impossible
to protest too strongly against what
,1s literally the Infamy of this de-
clon.
TCvery upholder of law and order
and every Hlncere well-wisher of the
cause should lalcc the lead In con
demning such utterly reactionary
conduct by a reactionary court.
Says Law Violated.
Absolutely without warrant of ls.w
and In the Interest only of tho great
aposUes of special privileges in poll
tics and Industry, the reactionaries
wish to disfranchise the people whom
they recognize in tho Progressive .
party as- the only party which really
and " in good faith stiuids for the
people.
It is an attempt to beat the cause
by trickery and chicanery, becauso
those who Inspired the at,tempt know
that they have no chance of success
In a fair and open fight beforn the
people themselves.
This action by the court has shift
ed the Issue In Idaho to a square is
sue as to whether or not the people
arc to bo allowed to express tholr
deliberate judgment, rt Is an attninpt
to stifle such expression of deliberate
Judgment by the people.
Declares Suit Infamous.
It was an Infamous thing for tho
Republican state central committee
to bring such an action, and the de
cision bv the reactionary, partisan
court before which It was brought
was agaliiHt the law. against equity,
against Justice, and against thu .
whole course of decisions in all our
American courts,

BANQUET I BOOH
OF EU 01
K. of OMeet to Pay Tribute
to Palroa and Enjoy Pes-'
I al -Evening'.
! Members of Salt Lake council,
Knights of Columbus, their guests and
brothers from the surrounding territory
last evening celebrated Iho anniversary
of fho landing of Christopher Columbus,
tho patron of tho order, with a. ban
quet in the private dining room of Ho
tel Utah. Following tho banquet an ap
roprialo programme of toasts was
given by prominent Utah knights. Mu
sical entertainment was furnished by
McCIollan's orchestra, with voeal selec
tions by Fred C. Graham.
While the banqueters were taking
their places the orchestra rendered pa
triotic airs. Following the invocation,
givcu by the Rev. M. McCorniack, a
tempting array of food was served.
Then Grand Knight William H. Lcary
of tho local council introduced the
toastmastcr, 0. J I. MeGurrin.
Foints Need of Religion.
After speaking fluently and compre
hensively on the 11 Mission of tho Or
dor,'' Mr. McGurrin introduced tho
Itov. L. J Kelledy, S, M., president of
All Hallows college, who responded to
the toast, "The College Graduate." L"a
ther Kelledy discussed at some length
tho problems of education, and the de
fects found in tho present day system
of public education. lie made a strong
appeal for religion . in education, and
declared that without it education is a
failure. In part he said:
Among oducators and men of promi
nence In various walks of life, and
among the people- of the country In
general, there Is at the present time
a certain feeling of dissatisfaction
and discontent regarding the present
educational system. The prevalence
of youthful crime, of the total disre
gard of life anil law on tbo part of
many youths uf tho country, demands
a remedy. It Is a serious causo for
alarm.
Basis of Discontent.
And by many the absence of reli
gious training In th schemo of pub
lic education Is deplored. Religious
education is the only safe means of
stemming this tide of youthful oilrnit.
The question arises, are the Institu
tions of our country giving us the
highest and best type of men and
women for future citizens? The an
swer Is the chorus of discontent aris
ing from wise anil conservative heads
throughout tho country.
Nobody believes that such deities
;is the pagan gods vr existed, yet
they may be taught In our schools.
But .lesun must not be taught. Wo
might as well cut tho word "God"
from our declaration of Independence.
Histon mav be taught, but not the
meaning of history. The Inspirations
of Christian literature are not studied,
yet our children read much of the
pagan literature. Education which
docs not bring men nearer to God Is
a failure; education which turns him
away from God Is a curse.
Responding to a toast, "Tho Dreamer
of Dreams,' tho dreams of Columbus
and their reoiisiation wore described
iu a masterly way by State Deputy S.
Abbott Maginnis. Coming up to the
present Mr, Maginuis told of tho dreams
which tho knights of the order should
.dream today. Ho retid that thes- could

N'JJW YOHK. Oct. 12. Long hours
of cross-oxaminutiuu by supper
Jesh lawyers before a supperless
court and jury failed I aright to
make "Bald Jack" IUM; vary his story
of thu part ,o played and the part he
fays former Police- Lieutenant Pecker
plnyo-,1 in the murder of Herman Rosen
thai, tho gambler.
Pecker (old mc." ho said, "Mint ,e

croaked or dynamited. A I hij, bidding
I got the. gunmen to kill Rosenthal. I
hid after the murder. I -aw Becker
that morning and later talked with
him over tho tolouhnne. I paid tho gun
men $IO()0 for Bc-ker. and told them
lie said nut to worry but to lay low.
"J gave, myself up and become a
state's witness because Becker desertpd
me like a flirty dog, and was gotling
roady to th'row me to tho wolves."
Lawyer Tires Out.
Justice Goff convened tbo afternoon
session of court at 2:h" o'clock. Short,
ly before 0 o'clock tonight ho declared
it adjourned until Monday morning,
after John Molnlyrc, Becker's lawyer,
protested that he was ou Iho verge of
collapso.
Court, ;jury. counsel, witnesses and
tho accused had been without food since
jioon.
Becker, cool and stoical, leaned on
the tablo at which he sat, his' chin
in his hands, his elbow on the table,
during the long cross-examination.
Twenty feet back in tho first row of
scats usually reserved for spectators,

husband rather than tho court. Onco,
only once, ho glanced back at her
and smiled.
'Bald Jack" Tfoso, thick lipped,,
wido eared and without a hair on his
head, was unruffled by tho ordeal.
Admits Criminal Career.
Rose admitted that ho had lied, had
perjured Himself, had been a gambler
and had been engaged for twenty years
in illegitimate business. Ho admitted
that ho was testifying to savo his own
life but said he was tolling tho truth
now. Ho said ho had concluded to be
como state's witness only when tho
electric chair stared him iu tbo faco
and that he was not ashamed of his
determination. Without emotion, in a
slow drawl, ho said he had deliberately
plunned, at Becker's behest, to "put
Rosenthal whore ho would never worry
anybody else.' He knew, ho added,
that it was a terrible deed to plan.
"Whero was your conscience 1" de
manded the lawj'cr.
"I don't know," he said, measuring
his words and facing the lawyer square
ly. "I never saw it."
Intends to Reform.
"Do you now intend to lead a re
spectable life?"
"Yes, but not in this communitj'. I
value my lifo too much and I wouldn't
bo a froo man hero."
"With words tumbling over each other
in thoir haste, Roso declared ho had
been a "true friend" to Sam S:hepps
and Harry Vallon and had interceded
for them with the district attorney.
Roao said ho had no motive of his own
for killing Rosenthal, but had acted
solely at Becker's direction. Time and
again McTntyro quoted alleged conver
sations betwoen Rose and men of the
underworld apparently in an attempt
to prove that Roso himself desired the
gambler's death.
ffXo such conversations over occur
red," was his reply to those questions.
"But you wore Becker's graft col
lector, so you say."
'"T was."
Court Room Crowded,
Notwithstanding that it is Saturday,
! when adjournment is usually taken over
tho week end, tho trial of Polico Lieu
tenant Charles Becker, charged with tho
murder of Herman Rosenthal, went on
as usual today.

BOSTON, Oct. 111. .fust as lie him
self in other days saw with eyes jH
then very young, the fading of
many an old-tinm baseball hero
before the splendor of his own prowess,
so Christy Mathowson Mathewson, tho
mighty stood by this afternoon and
saw tho light of his greatness flicker
and grow dim before the lusty glare of
a new star of the diamond.
Hugh Bedient, a 23-year-old boy
from tho sleep'y little town of Falco
nor, N. Y., roso today iu two fleeting
hours to the brief fame of tho sport
ing Held when he pitched thu Boston
Red Sox to a. 2 to 1 victory over the
veteran of the Polo c rounds.
It was with a dubious eye tha"t big
Jake Stahl, the Red .Sox chieftain,
weighed his pitching strength this aft
eruoou as the loose figure of Mathowson
shambled through the fog over tbo
Giant beneh and the great right arm
which had held the Boston band' to a
bitter draw, rose and fell with rhyth
mic swing while the veteran warmed
up for the fight. And it was with an
anxious heart thut the leader of the
Red Sox finallj- beckoned the Falconer
Stahl 's Judgment Tested.
The doubt expressed by tho baseball
fans as to whether Mathewson could
come back In such a short lime after the
terrific strain of the Wednesday tie, did
not find placo In Jako Stahl's mind, who
knew the Mathewson habit of rising to
an emergency. He knew that whatever
the issue, Mathewson would give him
desperate tight, for that la iho Mathew-
son way. Stahl could not use his spent
star, Joo Wood, and the Giants had
fiercely attacked his left bander, Ray Col
Una, and the veteran Charley Hall.
So when the time for chooalng camu,
Stahl picked the boy who was running
the streets of a country town barefooted jH
whon "Big Six" was In the heyday of
his glory, and this boy Is tonight a hero
among his kind.
Mathewson Still Effective.
And yet a word for Matheifson- A I-
ways great In the hour of victory, he
w.-u) oven greater today in his hour of
defeat. Backed by a brittle defense and
given a weakling attack to support hlfl
efforts, ho pitched a game that must
stand among his very best. Two long
