Bessie Yoakum Is Heroine
i2& ?
Kills five Charging Wild Hogs
MISS BESSIE YOAKUM.
Firing' All Shots in Her Own Rifle, She Picks Up
Gun of Terrified Mexican.
HOUSTON. Tex. Dec, 0. Miss
Bessie Yoakum, daughter ot
B. ' F. Yoakum, president of
- the Uock IslaiuI-'Frlsco Rail- k.
way lines. i killed five java-llnefa-
or ?Iexlcan wild hoss after licr
in ex I can sulde had thrown away his
rifle and deserted her.
Miss Yoakum was followin"' her
guide through a heavy woodland five
miles from this town. Tho man was
about ten feet In front of her when
i the pack of juvallncs charged thorn
from tho Hide. There were about a
dozen of the hoga and they charged
I In their accustomed way en masse.
Tho Mexican screamed In terror
and threw his gun toward Miss
Yoakum, lie made a leap for a low
branch and swung himself Into the
tree. Miss Yoakum had three shots
remaining in her rifle and killed
three of the pack. By dodging be
tween two trees she managed to
evade the pack which rushed by her.
! She coolly picked up the repeating
rifle which the nanlc-atrlcken Mexl-
authority lor the persistent published
report as to proposed remedies or legis
lation. The question has uovcr been
before the committee and it would be
premature to consider it. The commit
tee is not yet iu possession of tho fact's
ou which to base a judgment. H has
barely reached tbo threshold of the in
quiry so that any opinion as to its
action is decidedly premature, to ?ay
tho least.
Legislation Needed.
"Attention is called to tho announce
mont made at the outset of tbo hear
ings last May, yud since frequently re
peated, that the terms of tho resolution
under which tho committee is acting
cannot be fully carried out unless or
until congress shall havo enacted the
bill that has passed tho bouso and is
now pcudiug in tho seuatc, removing all
existing doubt as to the power of the
committco to inquire into tho part, if
an, that is played by the national
banks in the ajleged concentration aud
control of money and credit.
"Meantime, tho committee will press
forward with tho other heads of! the
inquiry with tho view of submitting an
intermediate report, accompanied by
such recommendations as may be
deemed wise.
"The postponement ovcr tho presi
dential campaign was taken pursuant
to the frequently announced determina
tion that this Important in jstigntiou
bhould not be subject to tho criticism
of suspicion of liciug in any way influ
enced by, or connected with, political
exigencies."
Banker on Stand.
j "William W. Cloud, president of the
Stato Bank of Maryland, tbo first wit
neas, said his bank had applied for
clearing houso privileges, but had been
refused because- it was not a member of
tho Baltimore clearing houso, but de
sired to bo cleared through another
bank that was.
"Docb tho Baltimore eloariug house
prescribo rules which provouts a bank
making its own price for exchange on
out of towu checks!" asked Samuel
Untermcyer, counsel for tho committee.
"Yes; it amounts to that," answered
Mr. Cloud.
"But that is throttlinc competition,
isn't itJ"
"Well, I wouldn't say throttling "
Joliit 17 Bland, president of tho
lean discarded and ' swung herself
Into the crotch of a tree noar where
Hie Mexican was crying in terror. 1
The maddened hogs turned and
qharged again. This time Miss Yoak
um fired twice. Each time one more
javallne fell. The rcmnlnlnc hog3
kept on going this time. The girl
fired four mote shots after them.
Sho clambered out of the tree and
spent the next five minutes convinc
ing her guide that the danger waa
over. With his help she dragged the
five dead Javallnes to one place and
later had them hauled Into town.
The hend of the largest of the ani
mals Miss Yoakum will have mount
ed as a souvenir of one of her most
exciting hunts.
Mies Yoakum Is known for her
athletic ability and shooting. She
made her debut In New York three
years ago and Is a rider, golfer and
tennis player at Tuxedo. Newport
and Meadow Brook. Her fame as a
hunter Is known all over tho coun-try.
United States Fidelity and Guaranty
company, next testified. Mr. Bland said
his company had sought in violation
to secure tho privilege of clearing 0uf
of towj chocks through its banks of
deposit, which woro luemoers of tho as.
sociation or to scoirc full membership
iu tho association. Wilhiu the last few
weeks, kowover, ho had been given to
understand I hat arrangements wore be
iug made by the clearing bouse to lako
cavo of tho "'trust companies."
"As a rosult of tho agitation of this
committee your object Las been accom.
plished?" suggested Mr. Unlermc3cr.
"Well. T could not say that."
"Waldo Newcomer, manager of the. Bal
timore clearing house, under queatlonlng
by Mr. Untennyor. explained that thr.
clearing houso had decided that no moro
banks were to be admitted to clearing
houso piivllcger. without submitting (6
thn rules of the clearing houoc.
"If. they rrcr.3 thus admitted,' he
eald, "they might proceed by unconser
vntlvc methods to cut rates of exchange."

SCARGITV OF LABOR
THE m TROUBLE
By International News Service.
"WASHINGTON, Dec. ft. There will be
more railroad construction work in 1913,
the first year of tho Democratic adminis
tration, than In any of tho past five
years, and there will not be enough labor
to tako care of it.
This was the statement today of T.
J. Dolan of Chicago, genoral secretary of
tho Brotherhood of Steam Shovclmcn.
Jt Is part of Mr. Dolan's duty to keep
In touch with the railroad and other big
construction projects in which tho mem
bers of his organization are particularly
Interested.
"There arc in sight now more than
5200.000,000 worth of railroad construc
tion contracts for next year," said Mr.
Dolan. "Many of them have been signed
and the others nro well under wav. More
than ?10,000,000 of tho contracts are for
the far west alone.
"The Northern Pacific, Great Northern,
Union Pacific. Southern Pacific, Santa Fe,
Frisco lines, Illinois Central, Missouri
Pacific and SL Paul railroads are among
those which have big Jobs ahoad for
next year.
"Activity in this line means activity
in all others, because hundreds of thou
sands of men will be affected. TlVrc will
be Increased work in the steel business,
the manufacturers of supplies, tools, cars,
shovels, locomotives and all kinds of
equipment.
"The only trouble will be the scarcity
of high-class labor. A railroad man told
mo In St. Paul the other day that next
spring his road will have to bring 10,000
laborers from the south to relieve the
situation.
"This year has been a busv one. but
tho coining ono will bo busier than ever."
HAWLEY SPENDS
DAY IN SENATE
Idaho Governor Pointed Out, as
Fif. Man for Secretary ol:
the Interior.
Special to The Tribune. '
WASHINGTON, Dec. 0.-Govornor
Ha-wlcy of Idaho spent a largo part of
this afternoon in tho senate cbambor,
where ho was introduced generally by
Senator Perky am Senator Borah. In
hi3 talks with senators tho governor
found quito 'a general sentiment in fa
vor of tho seloclion of a western man
as the next secretary of tbo interior,
and Senator Perky took occasion to
point out to many senators tho qualifi
cations of the Idaho governor for this
oflice.
Both Hawloy and Governor Norris of
Montana are aspirants for thi.v plce,
but both dct'jaro their first concern is
to sec tho right kind of a western man
chosen. if they can get some as
surance that the prcsideut-clcct will
pick his secretary of the interior from
tho west, they are willing, as is cx
Govoruor Adams of Colorado, that the
man for tho placo shall be selected by
the process of elimination.
There is considerable feeling iu
"Washington that if thy secretary of tho
interior is to be a western man the
choico will lio between these three, as
tliov now seem to be leading in the contest.

JA URES PRESENTS
FRENCH ARMY PLAN
PARIS, Dec 9. The discussion today
In tho chamber of deputies of the gov
ernment's bill providing for an adequate
number of officers for the territorial re
serve brought out M. Jaurcs in the role
of military expert.
Tho socialist leader proposed, Instead
of the government's bill, a scheme to
abolish flic distinction between Hie ac
tive army and the refiorve. By It all men
between tho ages of 20 and 2."i would ho
brought together and subjected to six
months service, supplemented by regu
lar periods of training. The offlccru
would comprise ono-thlrd regulars and
two-thirds civilians.
This, Mr. Jaurcs contended, would
make the nrmy an Indissoluble part of
the nation instead of a separate or
ganization, as at present. Ho pointed out
that Germany now was able to put
l.MO.000 men in the field ns compared
with 900.000 by France.
Ills scheme not only would opposo a
superior force to the German army, but
would compel Germany to substitute a
democratic for an oligarchic system.
M. Jaurcs culocrlzed arbitration trea
ties, saying that to have offored arbi
tration before letting loose tho dogs of
war conferred Incalculable moral bene
fit on a nation.
Tie commented on the sensation caused
by the recent statement of M. Bonncfos
that there were 80,000 French citizens
who had eluded military service or de
serted, and pointed out that since 1903
Germanvhad abandoned tho publication
of the number of Germans who shirked
military services, for in that year they
amounted to 130,000.
BVLGARS ACCUSED
OF AWFUL CRIMES
By International News Service.
LONDON. Dec 9. Dr. 13. J, Dillon, the
Dally Telegraph's correspondent at
Vienna, sends the following dispatch to
his paper.
"I deeply regret to announce that a
series of the most appalling horrors of
this or any other war known to history
will shortly bo pushed into tho fore
ground of public discussion and will cast
an ugly blot on the fair name of the
Balkan Christians who began a campaign
for the liberation of the oppressed peo
ples. "From Constantinople and Bucharest
narratives havo reached mc of inhuman
massacres of the unarmed Moslem popu
lation by Christian soldiers In the en
virons of Salonlkl. It Is not morely
that these unfortunnto human beings
were slaughtered by Bulgarian bands as
the helpless Bulgarian people have so
often been by the ferocious Turks,
Kurds and Albanians, but tortures of
tho most fiendish kind aro credibly re
ported to have been retorted to.
"The Indignities offered to the females
cannot bo described. Among tho most
soul-searing enormities which marked
this diabolical saturanalla Is the deliber
ate burial of the wounded.
"The gruesome story of these horrors
has not been published here as yet, but
the silence will be short-lived, because
detailed accounts have already been
telegraphed to their respective govern
ments by the consuls of Germany, Great
Britain and Italy.
"Tills plungo Into savagery Is a greater
calamity for the Christians guilty of It
than the Iops of a hard-fought battle
would be."
A dispatch to the Central Newa from
Salonlkl says:
"Official reports are now coming to
hand concerning atrocities committed by
Bulgarian bands In Chaleldko. and they
make horrible, reading. According to
these slatcrncnts a. party ot 500 Moham
medans wore brought Into Vlzoka bound
and were thero snot down. Greek of
ficers succeeded with difficulty In res
cuing the women and children. It is
feared that all the Mohammedan com
munities In that region will bo extermi
nated by Bulgarian bands."
NE W MEN ARE BOTH
GREAT SOLDIERS
LONDON. Dec. 10. The Vienna corre
spondent of the Tlmcit eends the follow
ing dispatch:
"Tho significance of the resignations
of Aar Minister Auffenberg and General
Sehcmua Is not certain, but on account
of the reputation enjoyed by General
Yon Ifoclzoiidorfi they nro generally sup
posed to Imply a victory for the military
party.
"The Austrian premier has authorized
tne lord lieutenant of Gallcla to Inform
the parliamentary representatives of
Gallcla, assembled at Lamberg, that tho
reports of tho aggravation of tho foreign
bltuation were unfounded; that the Auo-tro-Russia
n relations wcro normal and
that the rumors of impending war were
unworthy of credence.
"Notwithstanding this and other pa
cific assurances, tho public and thf
bourse rcfuso to ho comforted. There Is
a fct-llng. not unjustified, that the Bal
kan revolution Is bound, sooner or later
to affect the International structure of
the monarchy and even If war la avert
ed, a period of ntrcss and change In home
affairs may bo in sight.
War Argument.
"The argument that a victorious war
would be good preparation for Internal
construction can ba heard In political
quarters where common sense ought to
prevail, but in Austria-Hungary common
flenso lately has been almost as depre
cated as hpeculatlvo Investments."
The Vienna, correspondent of the
Chronicle nays:
"Tho resignation of War Minister Auf

"Von Iloetzendorff held that Austria

power."
RUSSIA WILL NOT
CHANGE ATTITUDE
ST. PlvTBRSBURG, Dec. 9. Russia's
attitude with respect to the Balkan sit
uation has not been changed by the ap
parently serlouc military prepniutlono of
Austria, the Imperial German chanccl
lor'a pointed speech In tho rclchstag, and
tho renewal of the triple alliance.
In diplomatic circles various Incidents
aro Interpreted an developments of Aus
tria's natural desire to safeguard her Jn
tcrcstH and prestige from thj growing In
llucncc of Slavdom, her Immediate object
being to compel Russia to disavow Scr
via In tho matter of an Adriatic port. It
Is pointed out that, while making due al
lowance for logltlmato measures on the
part of tho cabinet at Vienna. Russia
in bound also to safeguard her own Inter
ests and prestige. It Is further urged
that Russia cannot disavow what she
never clalmud and that she had already
done her utmost to restrain tho Ser
vians. In St. Petersburg tho opinion Is held
that no Irreconcilable dlfforopce remains
between the minimum that the Servians
demand and the maximum which Austria
Is prepared to concede, and that a great
power llko Russia cannot give such
pledges us Austrian diplomacy expects.
Nor Is it, for a moment believed hero that
Austria will resort to war to enforce such
pretentions.
WANTON KILLING
BY BASHI 3AZ0UKS
Special Cable to Tho Tribune.
PARIS, Dec. 9. The Matin publishes
a Constantinople dispatch describing the
massacre of Christians on the Galllpoll
peninsula, as follows.
"The Bulgarian cavalry's advance In
the direction of Rodosto had driven back
the Bashl Bazouks and the Turkish cav
alry toward Galllpoll and the latter mado
an agreement with the Moslem peasants
of that region to lay under contribution
tho Christian inhabitants of Galllpoll and
all neighboring villages. Ganos, Mlrlo
zlto and others which had already suf
fered severely by the recent earthquake.
"The Bashl Bazouks started pillaging
and sold the loot Lo the Jews at ridicu
lous prices. They then proceeded with
Incredible savagery to exterminate the
whole Christian population.
"At Galllpoll, however, the ICalmakan
succeeded In calming the blood-thirsty
fury of the Turks, persuading them that
the massacre of Armenians would create
serious difficulties with the government.
But elsewhore the massacre was gen
eral. Sixteen villuges were destroyed.
"News of these events reached the
Greek patriarchate here, which has al
ready addressed to the porte a strongly
worded protest. The French embassador,
specially appealed to by the Greek religi
ous authorities, sent tho warship Victor
Hugo to Galllpoli and an English cruiser
was also sent.
"There Is much comment here on the
Inertia of the Russian embassy which,
despite special orders from St. Peters
burg, sent no warship to Galllpoll, where
tho majority of the Christian population
Is orthodox-
Servia Will Fight.
BELG-RADI3, Scrvia, Dec. 9. Thc
accumulation of Austrian troops on
tho Servian frontier and tho' provoca
tive language of tho Viennese news
papers has led to renewed, excitement
and feeling in Servia.
Tho newspaper Pravda, voicing the
prevailing irritation, says:
"If Austria desires war with Sorvia
it will come. It will be tho most bit
terly fought in history. Every Servian
man and woman, young or old, will
