AS MALICIOUS FALSEHOOD
Mr. Zachau Accepts Challenge Issued by Brady O'Neill
and Says There is Not a Word of Truth in the Story
Told by the Latter Asks, Also, if it Were True,
Why O'Neill Has Never Thought Proper to Use it
The charge made by Brady O'Neill
at the Ashurst meeting Saturduy night
that during the thickest of the state
hood fight in Washington last August
Ralph Cameron was so drunk for four
duys that he was utterly oblivious of
vhat was going on and published in
an evening paper was repeated to Mr.
Cameron at Bisbeo last night
"In view of the fact that I don't
ilrink it seems hardly necessary for
me to deny that statement" was Mr.
Cameron's reply. "But if you think it
should be denied in face of O'Xeill's
challenge you may deny it and make
the deninl as strong as the newspaper-;
nill stand' for." I am not surprised at
any charge which O'Neill might make
In view of the fight he has made
against me all summer, but I am sur-'
prised that he would think that aj
charge of the kind, made the night be
fore election, would be believed.
"If you think a denial is abvisable

strong as you care to and see Mr.
Zachau (Cameron's secretary) and
others now in Phoenix who were in
AVashington during the statehood
Mr. Zachau was seen and dictated
the statement published below in
which he does not mince words in his
characterization of Mr. O'Neill'o
charge. Mr. Zachau said:
"An evening imier in its account of
the democratic meeting held Saturday
night reports Brady O'Neill as say
ing: 'He (Ralph Cameron') deserted
the case of Arizona right in the
thickest or the fight and got drunk
and remained in that condition four
days, utterly oblivious to the battle
being waged for the territory he mis
represented." O'Neill i.s also quoted as saying

NEW YORK. Dec. 11. Stars of
the lit'ry league are' gathering in
Gotham today to talk shop, exchange
views on how best to make a report
of a ball game unintelligible to any

NEW YORK, Dec. 11. "I welcome

Thus Mayor Gaynor .poked fun and
applauded the energetic efforts of tlwi
west, in delivering his address of wel
come today to the governors from the
far west, whose special train bore

The mayor lauded the west and south
in the matter of anti-trust legislation
and condemned the laws of New Jes

permits trusts to hold stock In other;
corporations. He remarked New York j
has an anti-trust law "a full of ad-

RUSSIAN CZAR IS
Testimony Shows Injustice was Done
Protestant and Catholic Church
men as Well as Jews.
WASHINGTON, Dec 11. Those who
appeared today before the house com
mittee on foreign affairs urging
abrogation of the 1S32 treaty between
the United States and Russia declared
the Czar's alleged discriminations
against Americans have not been con
fined to Jews alone but extended to
Catholic priests, protestaut ministers,
and American missionaries. Louis
Marshall. New York counsel for the
Jews, cited the case of Bishop Hoban
of Scranton, Pa., who, he said, was
denied a two day's sojourn in Russia,
although armed with a passport from
the state department. He said Oscar
Hammerstein, the American impres
sario. was not allowed to enter Russia
and engage talent. Jacob Schieff. the
New York banker, showed a letter
received from Eliliu Root, when the
latter was secretary of state, saying
no satisfaction could be obtained from
Russia. Oscar Straus, former ambas
sador to Turkey, and a member of
the Roosevelt cabinet, denied any per
sonal knowledge that American in
terests had influenced the state de
partment in treatment of the ques
tion. The committee will continue the

Tht is the Opinion of Mary Dye, Who
Formerly Worked for John
PITTSBURG. Dec. 11. "I have
known the McNamaras all my Hfe,"
said Miss Mary Dye today, "and I
never saw anything which looked like
a dynamite conspiracy."
Miss Dye. now a stenographer here,
was formerly confidential secretary of
J. J. McNamara. of the Structural
Iron Workers at Indlnapolis.
"All business of the Structural Iron.
Workers was done within the organ

others into this thing."
ABOUT MR. JONES
PRESCOTT. Ariz.. Dec. 11.
(Special. At the republican ral

important man on the democrat

missioner, was discharged from
the railroad for drunkenness.
Did anyone hear me? I said he
was discharged for drunkenness

Will Be to Fix the Time
and Place for Holding the
WASHINGTON, Dec. lL Hostilities
of an unexpected character from an
unlooked for quarter developed today
anong members of the republican
national committee and other prom
inent party leaders here in connec
tion with the meeting tomorrow to fix
the time and the uplace for the pres
idential nominating convention next
summer. The situation, however,
cleared considerably late in the even
ing, t tiie president's dinner to com
mitteemen there was no open dis
cussion of politics.
It became known immediately after
the dinner adjourned that Secretary
Hilles and other supporters of Pres
ident Taft had won a complete victory
am" that Col. New will undoubtedly
head the subcommittee on arrange
ments. It was n'so evident the Taft
forces would control the entire mem
bership of the sulcommittee. five
of which included, in addition to Col.
Ntw. National Committeemanu Mul
vane, of Kansas, Vorics of Ohio.
Murphyof New Jersey, and Williams
of Oregon. All these men are known
to be Trlendly to Taft. Committeeman
N. C. Duncan of Carolina, may be
added as the sixth member.
Not less interesting than the con
troversy over the subcommittee, in
charge of the convention, was the
open exploitation throughout the day
of Col. Roosevelt as a possible can
didate for the presidential nomination,
hoses their arguuents in his behalf on
the fact that at no time lias former
president announced he would not a
accept the nomination If it were at
tenderd race. It was recognized that
ho would not openly become a can
didate, they said, but they were busy
sounding members of the national
committee, they said, but were sound
ing members of the national commit
tee as to their sentiment in forcing a
nomination upon the colonel. Many
conducted an open advocacy of Roosc
vclts nomination when opposition to
naming a committee on arrangements
dominated by administration men.
Roosevelt enthusiasts frankly said
their hope lay In working up a de
mand for Col. Roosevelt in the con
vention Itself. The most sensational
feature of the days' skirmishing was
the fact that Secretary Hilles, who is
active leader of the Taft forces in
tht- competition for renominftlon. Post
master General Hitchcock, who man
aged President Taft's campaign three
years ago were seemingly arrayed
against each other. Finally Hitchcoek
ircucd a statement of denial but that
did not entirely set reports at rest.
Scuthren members met ostensibly to
take measures of protection against
any attempt by the next convention
to reduce their representation.

Prosecutor Has Issued a
Statement in Which He
Intimates That the Oc
currence Was Arranged
KANSAS CITY, ec 11. A mis-trial
on the second hearing of Dr. B. Clark
Hyde, charged with having killed Col.
Thomas H. Swope seems probable to
night. Made desperate by the sight
of two of his children from whom he
has been separated six weeks. In the
court room last Saturday, Harry Wa'd
ron. one of the jurors, escaped from
the jurors' hotel quarters early today.
While Frank Jasper, deputy county
marshal slept on guard Waldron pried
open a nailed transom, crawled
through the opening, tiptoed to the
tire escape and leaped fifteen feet to
freedom. The entire city police force
and a dozen deputies and county mar
shal's oficers hav been searching for
him since his absence was noted near
daylight. If Waldron is not located
by tomorow night eleven jurors will
be discharged. Judge PorterfieM said
today. Or if the missing man is
found and cannot prove that he has
not discussed the case during his ab
sence the same action will be taken.
Should he return In good health and
svenr that he has mentioned the trial
to no one, and the court Is satisfied
with his story, the trial will proceed.
Iar that Waldron has killed himself
grows hourly. He was in a highly
agitated state when last seen Sunday
ni,;ht, as. he had been almost every
day since chosen as a juror. He ob
jected to serving when selected, say
ing ids dairy interests would not per
mit his absence. Later lie was taken
ill. and begged piteously for his wife,
and children. His wife wrote him
daily and lie seemed better contented.
Saturday his children came to see
him. He spied them in the court
room from his seat in the jury box.
He smiled and nodded to them and
when court adjourned lie grasped
tin in in ids arms and fondled them.
Some of the jurors were playing
games, others read in the hotel. Wald
ron sat alone pluying an old battered
violin. "Home. Sweet Home," his fav
orite. He played it over and over
again. Even if Waklron's escape
should result in a mis-trial, which
means a loss of thousands of dollars
to the county, no severe punishment
could be inflicted upon him. He is
in contempt of court but the maxim
um penulty is a fine of ?.r0 or ten
deys' jail sentence. Attorneys and
hur.dreds of spectators remained about
the courtroom all day anxiously walt
intr for the return of Waldron. Scores
of theories regarding his disappear
ance are offered, but tiie suggestion
of suicide is most generally accepted.
Officers think worry about his family
may have deranged him. Prosecutor
Conkling has issued a statement In
timating that Waldron was induced to

New Revelations Have
Been Made as to Con

more of the officials of the Interna

voluntarily to the government infor

the alleged nation-wide dynamiting
conspiracy against structural iron con
tractors who maintained the "open
shop," was made known tonight in
statement. by representatives of the
National Erector's association.
"No promise of immunity to men
suspected of complicity in the vlyna
inltlne consnirncv was made by tin
government,' declared Charles W. Mil
ler. United States district attorney.
"But of course we'll accept evidence
from any direction to be presented to
the grand jury wiien it resumes its
session next Thursday." Walter Drew,
counsel for the electors association re
gretted the status Investigation was
made public at this time. "We've made
every effort to keep this situation cov
ered up until the completion of the
grand jury's inquiry," he said. "I will
not comment on the attitude of the
officials of the iron workers associa
tion." "Members of the erectors' associa
tion suffered from a hundred explo

since May, 130G" Drew added.
INDIANAPOLIS. Dec. 11. In face
of an announcement by the erectors"
association represuntatlves, Herbert
S. Hock in, secretary of the Iron work

thing from tills office through legal
means, but nothing lias been given
out or taken by force since the raid
on this office last April when John J.
McNamara was arrested and a mas.-
ol our records seized." Letters taken
from iron workers headquarters will
be used, it is said, in the federal grand

central committee and signed by Le
roy A. Ladd, editor of G. Wj P.
Hunt's paper at Globe, to the effect
that Cleve W. Van Dyke, publisher of
the Globe Silver Belt, which has been

abandoned the fight as hopeless, had
denounced the republican candidates
and campaign managers and to cap
the climax became so drunk that his

as he had started upon a protracted
The disyatch was reoeated to the
Silver Belt and drew from Mr. Van
Dyke th following:
"GLOBE, Ariz., Dee. 11. Ladd's

SAN QUENTIN. Dec. II. John J.
and James B. McNamara, their identity

314 and 25,315 respectively bent their
freshly cropped heads and striped
backs over a jute mill in San Quentin
prison today. They began their pris

although J. J. appeared to take less
interest in the prison scenes than did
his brother. J. J. may continue at
the jute mill indefinitely, while J. B.
may be given a lighter task if he be
found to be tubercular, for which he
will be examined in a few days.
The prisoners were aroused from
their first night's sleep in the prison
a. 6 o'clock this morning by a clang
ing bell in the corridor. At 6:45 they
became part of a serpentine-like line
formed by l.'JOO men in stripes and

beans, cornmeal mush and coffee. The
jute mill opened for work at 7 A. M. J.
B. was the more cheerful of the two

evidently the men hope to act as mod

BY SUPREME COURT
Tribunal Gives Three Reasons Why
the Demand of Tobacco Men
Cannot be Granted.
WASHINGTON. Dec. 11. In refus
ing the request of the rough leaf to
bacco board of trade that it review the
decree of the United States circuit
court of New York which approved the
reorganization plan of the "tobacco
trust", three reasons were assigned
today by the supreme court of the
United States. The reasons were set
forth by Chief Justice White. One
who is not a .party to the record when
Judgment is entered is not entitled to '
appear therein the, court said. The
action of the" court below in refusing f
to permit the movers to become par-
ties to the record is not susceptible
of being reviewed by this court on ap
peal or indirectly under the circum
stances here disclosed by a writ man
damus in another part of the decision.
The character of interest which the
movers alleged they have. In papers
here filed. Is not in any event such a
character as to authorize them In this
proceeding to assail the action of the
court below, is another ground. A
bill was introduced today by Senator
Cummins, granting to independent to
bacco companies the right to appeal
to the supreme court of New York
from the decree approving the com
panys organization. The bill gives as
a reason for the review the vlesire tJ
ascrtain whether the circuit courts de
cree is in conformity with the supreme
court's decision in the tobacco case.
