ERNEST DENICKE, SON OF WELL KNOWN SAN FRANCISCO
BANKER, ARRESTED FOR SHOOTING HELPLESS ITAL
IAN, WHO PLEADED FOR MERCY HAD TRIED
TO CATCH CHICKEN ON WHARF.
SAN FRANCISCO, May'24, Ernest Denicke, son of E.
D. Denicke, a well known San Francisco banker and capital
ist, was arrested at his home today on a charge of man
slaughter, Denicke was released later under $3,000 bond.
On Friday afternoon, April 20. Denicke, while wearing the un
iform of a lieutenant of the U. S. Army, shot -and killed an
unknown man on the Lombard street wharf. Denicke was
a well known mining engineer.who has seen service in the
Philippines. On the night of the earthquake he was detail
ed on duty along the water front. On Friday'aftemoonL April
20, a coop of chickens was liberated on the Lombard street
wharf, and a number of refugees scrambled after the Jowls.
One of these, evidently a middle aged Italian or Mexican, was
accosted by a drunken marine, who stabbed the man with, a
bayonet. The refugee succeeded in wresting the gun from
the marine, when an army officer rushed up, and, according
to the stories told the police by eye witnesses of the affair,
deliberately shot the man three times while he pleaded for
mercy. The man did not die immediately, but, It is alleg
ed, was allowed to lie on the wharf until 1 1 o'clock that night.
He was then discovered dead, and his body was weighted and
thrown into the bay. No report of the death was made to
military headquarters. For a long time the identity of the of
ficer.who did the shooting was a mystery. The police are now
dragging the bay in the hope of recovering the body.
Much feeling has been caused by Denicke's arrest. It
is hinted that soldiers acted hastily and without reason in
many other instances that have not come to light.
The chief of police said tonight that a thorough investi
gation will be made as soon as possible of the action of all
officers, State, national and loqal, following the disaster.

PHILADELPHIA, May 24. Additional evidence of discrimination by the Pennsylvania Railroad in
the distribution of cars In the softcoal fields was presented to the interstate commerce commission today,
John Lloyd, a banker and coal operator of Altoona, who is one of tho members ot the banking firm of
Cassatt & Co., testified that the Columbian Coal Company was forced to sell the Alexandria mine be-
cause of a shortage of cars, and George E. Scott, of the Puritan and Crescent Coal companies, declared
that he paid for the use of railroad cars when he failed to secure his allotment, and that during a
period of twenty-three days Ihe railroad had furnished him with only one car. He also asserted that
Michael Trump, general superintendent of transportation, had told him the company Intended to protect
the Berwind Company at all hazards.
During the time that Lloyd was on the stand, counsel for the commission made a personal effort to
force an admission that he had been associated in business ;with President Cassatt. Lloyd, however,
said his only relations with Cassattwere through Cassatt & Co.a personal account carried by him. The Co.
had for many years been a. depositor with the First National Bank- of Altoona, of which" Lloyd Is pres-
ident. Lloyd also gave testimony concerning the organization of various mining companies in which he Is
interested, stating that he cosidered it good business policy to have the railroad men among the stock-
holders of the coal companies.
Frederick V. Rooman, assistant trainmaster, told the commission that he bad received gifts of money
in amounts from $5 to $20 from the various coal companies for favors that he did not grant. The com-
mission today received a telegram from the nroccss server, who went to Irwin, Iowa, the home of Con-
pressman George F. Huff, who it has been repeatedly testified, made gifts from various coal companies
to railroad officials. The telegram stated that the officer was unable to serve thesubpoenas upon Colo
nel Huff, as the latter locked himself In his house and evaded the server by escaping by way of the cel
lar. It was learned later that he had left town. v , -,

Senator Emery of Bradford, Paw I
who was on the stand today, related
further history, concerning his fight
against the Standard, giving one in
stance of how a refinery at Philadel
phia was compelled to go out of busi
ness because the railroads raised the
rates to an exorbitant figure, and also
scattered their tank cars to distant
corners of the country. ,
Another instance was when a new
field of oil was discovered in the Brad
ford field, and his company took
charge of It. A railroad rate of 10
cents a barrel was obtained, but the
Pennsylvania Railroad Company com
pelled a connecting line, under threats,
to raise the rate to 25 cents. Then,
he said, the oil company constructed a
pipe line, whereupon the Standard con
cern came in and offered 10 cents
more a barrel for the oil, and com
pelled his company to abandon the

BURLINGTON OFFICIAL AND BROKER HEAR DAMAGING
EVIDENCE IN KANSAS CITY, IN WHICH THEY ARE
'CHARGED WITH HAVING GIVEN REBATES TO
SHIPPERS, WHO ARE FORCED TO TESTIFY.
KANSAS CITY, .May .24. The members of a dozen
large business firms admitted here today at the trial in the
Federal Court of George H. Crosby, Burlington traffic man
ager, George L. Thomas, the wealthy ana influential New
York freight broker, and the latter's clerk, L. B. Taggart,
that they had received thousands of dollars in commissions
from "unknown sources. All of the firms had hired them to
attend 'to the shipping of their goods from, the Atlantic sea
board to their stores in St. Louis and Kansas City, but none
of the witnesses would say that these sums of money had
come from Thomas. W. E. Emery, member of the Emery,
Bird & Thayer Dry Goods Company, who admitted receiving
from $500 to $2000 a year, said he did not know who sent
it, but "SUPPOSED IT CAME FROM THOMAS." Notwith
standing the large sums paid in commissionsjione of these
firms had kept any records of the amounts, according to the
witnesses. All payments were made in New York. Several
officials of the Burlington were examined as to the payments
of these commissions oy that company, and their testimony
developed the fact that the vouchers for the amounts had
disappeared. The government rested their side of the case
in the afternoon, when Judge 0. M. Spencer, for the defend
ants, filed a demurrer in all the cases, arguing that no evi
dence had been produced to shqw a case of conspiracy, and
even if such evidence had been presented the court lacked jur
isdiction, as the alleged crime was committed- in New York
and not in Missouri. He asked that the case of Crosby be
dismissed. Judge Smith McPherson overruled the motion
as to Crosby, ajdsaid that argument on the demurrer vould
be had tomorrow morning, to which time the court adjourned.

Attempts Answer to Towne,
Who States That Way Is
Pointed 'Out Clearly Which
Democrats Must Follow.
WASHINGTON, May 24. Mr. Town
of New York, when he rose to address
the House of Representatives today
under tho general debate on the diplo
matic bill, was accorded an ovation by
his associates on the Democratic sldo,
a number of Republicans joining with,
them In giving him a friendly welcome.
Towne's first sentence, "I rise to
make some observations to this House
why. the Republican party should be
driven from power and the Demo
cratic party entrusted with the reins
of government," outlined the trend of
Following closely In the footsteps
of the speech made by Charles B. Lan
ls of Indiana jesterday. Interest cen
tered in Towne, who was expected to
answer the "stand-pat" speech of tht
gentleman from the Hoosler State.
Towne "prefaced his remarks by an
allusion to the speech made by Cush-y
man of Washington, whom he denom
inated the funny fellow of the Repub
lican party, wherein the latter spoke
rather disparagingly of the change
In Towne's policies. To this. Towne
replied that it he had been content
to swallow the prescription given lilm
by the Republican party he would still
be in the Republican ranks; with a
10,000 Republican majority at his
back. And he believed he could have
continued in Congress for fifty years.
Instead, however, the Republican
party changed its position on tho
money question, tjctween 1SS8 and
l&SC. and as he desired to be in a po
sition to champion honestly his con
victions, and .as the Republican party
had no convictions during those years,
he got out of the Republican party.
He conceded that the Democratic party
had made a tactical error fn 1S9C, when
it committed itself to the ratio of
10 to 1.
"Democracy," he said, "stands in
principle today where it stood in 1896.
AVo do not demand free coinage today.
Why? Because we do not need it."
"It Is hot pleasant to examine," he
said, "and I shall not examine the
question of veracity between a- high
executive officer, especially- the Presi
dent of the United States and other
honorable and reputauie genti'men. it
is enough to say that It'is exceedingly
unfortunate that this particular ex
ecutive has had he misfortune to raise
the question of veracity with every (
public character he has come In con
tact with during his administration.
"Does the gentleman mean to let
that statement go into the record?"
"No," answered Towne; "I will say
that a very great many returns are
-not all in. .
In the Senate of the United. States
combines were made with some Re
