When Christmas day comes. Secre
tary Taft expects to lie telling his
friends all about his trip around the
world. He hones that the globe trot
upon which he has just started will
be over in time for him to eat his
turkey and plumb pudding at home.
It's going to be a great trip. It

speeches on the way to his steamer
Sailing out of the Golden Gate,
Taft will touch at Hawaii. He will
land In Japan to get the sea roll out

11. he will start for the Occident on
the great Siberian railroad. He will

President of First Company
Had No Real Connection
With the Concern
AMAZING STATE OF
AFFAIRS IS SHOWN
Official Admits That He Paid for
No Stock. Attended No Meet
ing. Saw No Books and
Is Ignorant of
Denver, Colo., August 19. With
considerable speed the defense In the
Lost liullion Spanish mines case is
getting Its testimony In. H. C. Hunt,
first president of th Lost Bullion
company, was "at the bat" for sev
eral hours telling a tale of Innocence
as counsel for the defense drew It
out and undergoing a rather severe
grilling at the hands of Assistant At
torney General Rone.
"I never Invested one cent In the
property, was never connected before
with any mining Industry, and di not
know If there was one dollar in act
ual cah Invested In the claim," said
he. "It Is true I allowed my name to
appear as president of the corpora
tion, but never attended nny of the
meetings. If my signature appeared
on the minutes of the meeting: as be
ing present, it is false."
"Is it not curious," ho was asked,
"that as president of the company,
you ?ld not attend these meetings?"
Had Other Business.
He replied that his time was occu
pied by other matters nd that he
trusted the others to attend to the
business. "I never looked at the
books and did not know what the
company waa doing," he said.
"Did you ever Investigate, or cause
to be investigated for your own per
sonal Interests, the Lost Claim?"
"No, sir: ! did not. I took ths word
of the mining engineer and the direc
tors. I resigned from the office on
January 2. 1907."
"How many shares of the capital
stock did you own?"
"About 15,000. These I offered to
return to the company upon my res
ignation, as I did not think I had
Hut He Kept Ills Stork.
After a few more questions the
witness tiated that when he learned
that the company had passed resolu
tions riving him a vote of thanks for
his valuable service he decided to
keep the shares, and that they could
m now be purchased for less Jhan
one dollar per share, the par value,
and that had not the government
taken up the investigation he would
have invested several thousand dol
lars in the company. The witness
further stated that he did not know
where the records of the company
were kept and does not know at this
time where they are. When aisked If
he, ns president of the mine, would
object to the records being shown,
he replied that he did not know.
"Know what? Whether you would
or would not?"
"Either one," was the reply .
orilclal In Xnino Only.
It would seem from Dr. Hunt's
testimnnv that he never had exactly
understood his relations to the other
members of the company. He did
realize that when he and V. R. Wil
son incorporated the company and
capitalized it at 10,000,000 he was
elected president, but he said he
never attended any of the meetings
and knew nothing whatever about
the management of the company,
though his name was signed to the
minutes regularly and that the same
name always appeared prominently
In all the doings of the company at
the time he was president.
I'nder cross examination. Dr. Hunt
expressed his abiding: faith in the
Lost Bullion property, and said that
when brighter days should come and
the troubles of the officials were at
an end. he expected to again invest
in the mine, or cave.
George F. Fonda, druggist. and
vice president of the First National
bank at Boulder, testified that he
purchased 600 shares of stock in the
company from Wilson, who, he added
is a warm friend of his. He said he
went to Silver City with Wilon and
that they went together to inspect
the Lost Bullion property. He was
much pleased with the property and
he wrote letters of endorsement,
praising the mine and the manage
ment in the highest terms.
On cross examination he admitted
that some of the letters of endorse
ment were dictated by Wilson.
W. B. Cameron, vice president of
the Lost Bullion company and one of
the defendants, testilied to the same
effect as did Fonda, relative to the
great value of the ore he found In
the cave, or mine.

American Commercial Opera
tors Have Full Sympathy
of Fellows Throughout
WILL BE PURSUED
President Small Declares That
There Will Be Plenty of Money
to Rush Strike Even If
It Continues For
Chicago. 111.. August 19. A world
wide telegraphers' strike Is imminent.
It has not been generally known, but
It developed today that the olllcers of
the Commercial Telegraphers' Union
of America have been carrying on ne
gotiations for more than a year with
the Telegraph Clerks' association of
England with a view of bringing
about a working alliance between the
English and American telegraphers.
They have so far succeeded that
sympathetic action In the present
strike is assured. Any attempts to man
the American cable stations at Canso,
North Sydney, and Heart's Content,
Nova Scotia, will result in the refusal
of English operators to handle cable
grams from America.
Should the British end of the trans
atluntic cable be manned by non-union
men, the action would be sure
to precipitate a general strike of all
telegraphers In England.
Socialists Will Co-operate.
That the strike may extend to the
European continent and spread over
tne entire world seems probable. A
M. Simmond, editor of the Chicago
Daily Socialist, the American Nation
al Labor union organ, and delegate to
the international Socialists convention
at Stuttgart, Germany, is authorized
to present before tho convention,
which is practically one of labor or
ganizations, the question of establish
ing a defensive and offensive alliance
between the telegraphers of America,
Europe, Australia and the Orient.
President S. J. Small of the Commer
cial Telegraphers of America said:
"We are assured of the co-operation
of every Socdalist operator of
Europe. They consist of 90 per cent
of the telegraphers of the continent
and three-fourths of the operators of
the British colonies. When non-union
men begin to send cablegrams
from America a walkout from Eng
lish and European otllces is inevit
able. "Already we have 'bottled up' the
Orient by cutting off San Francisco.
If this were not sufficient we have
assurances from the Socialist opera
tors of Japan that during the strike
they will refuse all messages from
America. This strike will demonstrate
to the world that labor Interests are
fully awake to the necessity for uni
Aggressive tactics are declared by
President Small of the striking tele
graphers to be the only hope of vic
tory, and he has planned to put them
Among projects he has outlined are
the calling out of every leased wire
operator not under union contract by
noon Monday, the complete telegrah
plilc isolation f North America by
calling out cable operators at all
points, and a demand for the sanc
tion and active aid of the American
Federation of Labor In the present
The national executive board of
the strikers Is in session to discuss
and ratify the plans of the strike
The attitude of President Small is
said to have dispelled hope of inter
vention by Labor Commissioner Nelll
who, with President Gompera of the
national labor organization, has gone
to New York.
A positive demand for the closed
shop was declared by President Small
today as the only basis for settlement
of the strike.
Washington. D. C. August 19.
Can the Interstate commerce commis
sion, under the present law, assume
Jurisdiction over the telograph sys
tem of the country?
This is a question that has been
brought out forcibly by the great
strike of keymen.
"Even assuming that the telegraph
Is an Instrument of Interstate com
merce," said one of the commission
ers, "and that It was the Intention of
congress to include it under the regu
lative authority conferred in the
Hepburn act, what of it? It would
not help In this situation. The Hep
burn act does not give the commission
any power to take possession of an
instrument of interstate commerce
and operate it, even if it becomes in
operative by strike or otherwise.
"The commission would have, at
most, no more than power to regu
late charges on telegrams sent, and
to make rules in regard to the kind
of service to bo rendered the public.
The commission has no authority to
regulate wages of railway employes
op to adjust wage disputes between
common carriers and their empolye.
No more would It in case of the tele
"i do not see how the commission
could, in any event, do more than
hold an Investigation Into the merits
of the dispute and to make public a
report on It. That might or might
not do good. Just at present, how
ever, there is no call for action by
tho commission of any sort."
