audience with General Cobos. who Is a
brother of the Minister of War. It is re
ported that General Cobos offered tho gov
ernorship to different Conservatives, who
refused to accept, and that he himself -will
assume civil command.
It is said that Consul Gudger attempted
to send a cablegram to Arthur M. Beaupre.
United States Minister at Bogota, but that
the agent refused to accept the message,
claiming that the lines were Interrupted, in
spite of the fact that It is known that
press messages were accepted this morning.
As this dispatch Is being sent it is learned
that Doctor Arjona and Judge Xavia have
been set at liberty, and that the Chief of
Police, Avango, remains under arrest.
There was little excitement on the street
lo-day, the Colombian battalion attending
church in a body, as usual, but the condi
tion of affairs is very serious. Governor
Mutls virtually is a prisoner. Undoubtedly
General Cobos will Issue later in the day a
proclamation giving the reasons for his ac
tions, which up to this timo are unknown.
The effect of what Is now going on upon
the Colombian Congress, it Is believed, will
be favorable to the canal treaty, for tho
enemies of the treaty, it Is now believed,
will be easily convinced of the necessity of
certain clauses which it contains In regard
to the control of this zone.
The Associated Press correspondent has in
terviewed General Cobos, who admitted dif
ferences with Governor MutN because of
the latter's refusal to pay its soldiers, who,
ho said, were hungry. He said that Gov
ernor Mulls had sjstematically opposed
everything emanating from the military-authorities,
but denied that he had intended
to arrest the Governor. He said:
"I was asleep last night when informed
that the editors of El Papiz had been at
tacked by some officers. I ordered seventy
men out to punish the often lers. I-assirg
the Governor's houbc I went upstair to in
form him of what had happened, because of
his lieniency tow-ar dthe Liberals, who daily
Insult the military authorities.
"Governor Mutis tent word that he was
out, which belns untrue I concluded ho
had refused to see me. It was far' from my
mind to arrest the-Governor, who had no
reasons to sldq against me, I am anxious
to end the situation, which was really cre
ated by Governor Mutls himself. I have
tried to see him three times this morning,
but without success. I will thank you to
make public my statement."
General Cobos assured Blsho Junguito
that for his part the controversy was ended.
General Cobos's statement was transmitted
to Governor Mutls this afternoon by the
American Consul. Later the Governor went

IS BOOMING FOLK,
Business Men and Farmers Lead
Movement to Nominate Him
POLITICIANS ARE TRAILING IN.
"Boodle or No Boodle" Is the Slo
gan Which Is Sounded En
out the .Couniv.
BY A STAFr CORRESPONDENT.
Carrollton. Mo.. July K. "Folk for Gov
ernor" has become the slogan of the busi
ness men and farmers of Carroll County.
The best citizens of the county scat have
signified their intention of" doing all in
their power to make the St. Louis Circuit
Attorney the next executlvo of the State by
signing their names in black and white to
a paper calling for the organization of a
Folk Club In Carrollton and In every town
ship in tho county. The first formal meet
ing will be held this w eek, when officers will
be elected and preliminary work for earn
ing the county delegation to tho next State
Democratic Convention begun.
While the same sort of work Is bcln,;
done over all the State, tho Carroll County
movement Is perhaps the most significant
of any branch of the Folk boom. This coun
ty is only ene removed from Jackson Coun
ty, the home of Mayor James A. Reed of
Kansas City. There Is probably only one
outside county where he has more friends.
That one is Ray, adjoining Carroll, where
Senator John F. Morton had Reed put on
the county delegation after he had been re
fused this privilege in Jackson. Carroll
County Is In Senator Morton's district and
has always stood by htm in the party
Virgil Conkling, State Committeeman,
lives here In Carrollton and Is supposed to
be a friend of Reed. Thero is much specu
lation at present as to whether he In the
end will Join the Folk movement now in
process of formation here.
"I am not unfriendly to Folk," Conkling
said to-day. "I shall not try to dictate any
action by the Carroll County Democrats.
The best people here are in the Folk move
ment, and it is not a "sorehead" proposition
by any means. I have always been a friend
of Reed, to that I cannot be expected to
leave him just vet if I ever do."
The origin of the Folk movement here Is
similar to that in other counties. The rev
elations of corruption by Folk astounded
and disgusted the better element hero, as
elsewhere. Business men dlscusssd it in
their leisure. Traveling men coming from
other sections of the State told of the senti
ment which they found elsewhere. Practi
cally one sentiment ruled here that FolkV
should bo elevated whether the politicians
wished it or not.
So one day W. A. Kinsey. book and sta
tionery dealer, and S. Rosenstock, dry good?
man, both standing high In the communi
ty started around the square with a paper
to secure signatures for a Folk Club. In an
hour and a half they had seventy-five
names. Less than a half dozen refused to
sign. Many Republicans wished to do so,
but were not permitted, as tho promoters
desired to keep tho roll one of Democrats.
One Republican merchant said that if ho
could not join the club he wanted the privi
lege of subscribing liberally to any expense
which might be Incurred In bringing Folk
here for a speech in September or October.
LEADING CITIZENS SIGN.
The leading citizens signed the roll.
Among them are William E. Hudson, presi
dent of the First National Bank; E. J.
Ray and Herndon Ely, president and casi
ler of the Carrollton Exchange Bank; H. H.
Wllcoxson, cashier of the banking-house of
Wilcoxson & Co.; Doctor R. F. Cook; Ralph
T. Lozier, a prominent attorney; T. W.
Orchard, books and stationery; Doctor J.
A. Lev ell, dentist; H. David, dry goods;
and S. S. Lewis, traveling for Hargadine-'
McKIttrlck Dry Goods Company of St.
Louis, but having his headquarters in Car
rollton. Mr. Lewis has been one of the most
active participants in the movement.
""Sentiment Is all one' way among tho
business men." said Mr. Lewis. "My terri
tory Is chiefly north of the river, and Folk
has the merchants as his most ardent sup
porters. We expect to organize a Folk club
in Richmond, Ray County, in a few days."
The business men are not all of those in
the Folk movement hereabouts. When
t . - -- 'I ' !. A
J. H. BEACH.
Messrs Kinsey and Rosenstock went to the
county officials they had no difficulty In
getting willing signatures. Among others
are Sheriff I. C. Couzcn, County Clerk E.
A. Dickson, Probate Judge E. I Dawson
and Circuit Clerk Kay Charles.
Prosecuting Attorney Jack Jones said his
first choice was Reed and his second Tolk.
BUSINESS MEN FOR FOLIC
The seventy-five names served us a nu
cleus for the Folk Club. Messrs. Kinsey
and Rosenstock did not have more time to
circulate tho paper, so it was taken to
Mr. Klnsej's store. In a half hour more
than thirty Democrats came In to ask for
the prlviiige of signing.
"I know that at least 33 per cent of the
business men are for Folk," said Mr.
Itoscnstock. "We want some one as Gov
ernor who has shov.n that there are no
strings tied to him and who does not fear to
go after the boodlers. We are tired of
silence on the part of State officials on this
subject and wish to show our appreciation
of the Circuit Attorney's work."
Attorney Ralph Lozier. one of tho club
members, put it this way:
"'BOODLE OR NO BOODLE." s
"Under other circumstances, I should
probably be for Gantt. Conditions are dif
ferent this year. Mr. Folk's work is the
Issue of the das. "Boodle or no boodle' is
tho question which must be answered bv
the voters. Mr. Folic ! distinguished by
his fight against corruption, and I believe
the people want him for Governor, so ho
can continuo his light against this dis
grace." And so they talked. Mr. Hudson of the
First National Bank said he believed that
nine out of ttn of his depositors were for
Folk. Doctor Cook told of County Com
mitteeman F. Ferguson coming in from Wa
kenda Township, hearing of the Folk Club
and announcing that he would start one in
All In all. the Folk movement in this
county is one in which the people busi
ness men. farmers and professional men
nro taking the lead. It Is gradually In
gulfing the politicians, and while sentiment
may not rule their inclinations, some of
them are talking of climbing in the Folk
band wagon and showing their hand.

bers of the Ill-fated fishing party were ac
companied by tragic circumstances.
Jacob J. Lenharth, who was a book
keeper for the St Louis Dressed Beef and
Provision Company, was killed before the
eyes of his son. Jacob G. Lenharth. while
tho death of David H. Beattle. who was
employed as engineer at the Cramer Dry
Plato Company, was anticipated by his
wife, who had a premonition that some
thing would befall her husband.
A moment before the train struck the
car, Jacob G. Lenharth, Jr., Jumped, and
thus escaped injury. The next instant he
saw his father hurled from the train.
In describing this scene upon his return
home he stated that the elder Lenharth
was pitched as high as a telegraph polo
and then fell headlong Into a ditch. The
sceno completely unnerved tho json, and ho
was compelled to take to his bed yestcrday
aftemoon. He slept at Intervals, but would
start up in fright, and declare that tho
whole scene was being enacted over again
in his dreams.
Beattle was averse to making the trip
and was heard to say that he wished it
would rain so that he would have some ex
cuse to offer his friends for not accom
panying them. His wife, too, wished thit
sometliing would happen to prevent her
husband going, and she was on tho ergo
of asking him to stay at home.
After reflecting that it was a pleasure he
had promised himself for some time she de
cided not to interfere with his plans, and
accordingly at the appointed time Seattle
started off with gigs and tackle. He had
not gone more than a half block from the
