COLONEL HAS NO
FEAR OF RECALL
Refutes Charge That Progressive
Party Borrowed Ideas From
By THEODORE TILLER.
HASTINGS. Neb., Sept. 20
Matching swords with "The Poorloss
Leader," who is waging battle in
other States against the Progressive
party, Colonel Roosevelt crossed the
border line of Nebraska today. Be
fore night the colonel will havo
spoken at Holdredgo, Fairmont, Lin
coln, Omaha, and wayside stations.
A foretaste of the colonel's siz
zling campaign through the Bryan
Stato, which is debatable ground, was
furnished at Denver last night, when
Mr. Roosevelt, for tho first time on
the tour, devoted considerable atten
tion to Mr. Bryan.
Answers the Commoner.
The colonel answered five questions
recently propounded by the commoner,
and tho Bull Moose candidate Inter
spersed a few observations of his own
regarding tho Nebraskan and the Demo
cratic party In general.
Colonel Roosevelt devotes no great
amount of time to a discussion of Mr.
Taft and the Republican party. Tho
Western tour has demonstrated to
every one aboasd the Roosevelt train
that this race Is entirely between Roose
velt and Wilson.
In replying to Mr. Bryan, tho .Pro
gressiva candidate made two statements
that were of prime importance. First,
Colonel Roosevelt declared tnat "every
argument In favor of any limitation of
the terms of the President can refer
only to consecutive terms." Second
was Mr. Roosevelt's sweeping announce
ment that he was willing to go a little
further than the Propresslv plalfurm
and would be willing personally to ex
tend the recall to the Presidency.
Cheers Greet Statement.
"Good, good," shouted numerous
voices in the audience. Mr. Roosevelt
said this, however, was tho expression
only of his personal feeling in the mat
ter, and the colonel then elaborated
upon the third term bugaboo and tho
The vote of the people In the recent
primaries. Mr. Roosevelt said, "de
cided that he talk of a third term
In the caEe was the veriest bugaboo
ever had up to frighten political chil
dren," and his hearers laughed and
One of Mr. Bryan's questions related
to the Interest George W. Perkins
has taken in the Progressive cause.
Once more tho colonel related the
circumstances under which Mr. Per
kins .had expressed a desire to go
Into the third party.
The colonel then continued with ef
fectiveness: "The difference between
Perkins and the financiers that were
against me Is that they work secret
ly for a secret rewaid, while Mr. Per
kins neither expects nor shall have
any reward other than that which
wmes to Ben Llndsey, Jane Addams
Bd others, whoso reward Is to see
the principles In which they believe
triumph In this country."
Reviews Harriman Case.
Although ho had explained thi mat
ter In great detail only two veeKb ago,
Colonel Roosevelt reviewed tiie hlstoo
Of the Hanlman letter for the ueneflt
of the Denver Progressives, iultllllug hlb
promise tnat Bryan could ask no ques
tion which he would not anawer. Mr.
Roosfvelt expressed tho hope that
Bryan would be straight-forward
enough to admit that he had been "an
swered." The colonel was fairly sn.rc.isUe when
he can? to Bryan's questiun number
three, which askod what Issues in thj
Progressive platfoim had not been bor
rowed from the Democrats
"if Mr Rrynn thinks wn hot rowed
issues from the Democratic plattoim,
why doies he permit Governor Wilson
to "attack our platform?" askrd ths
colonel. "No sane man wou!a want It
borrow from the Democratic platform."
Merry laughter greeted ti sallj .
"Mr.'rirjan asks why I adilies'ie.i Mr.

same reason Mr. Bryan willes me as

PARIS, Sept. 20. A very swell appear
ing youth was strolling along the
Champs Elyseos last night. In his but
tonhole was the rosette of tho Legion
of Honor. Two policemen approached,
clanking their swords:
"You'ro too young to be a Chevnlier
of tho Legion of Honor," said one. "It's
a punishable offenno to wear a Legion
of Honor decoration unless you 'be
"I'm not a Chevalier, I'm higher than
that," replied the youth.
"An officer, may be," sneered tho po

"Ah, a commander," observed tho po
liceman, contorting his face In arr-ef-'
fort to multiply his sneer.
'I'm higher than a commander," said
the youth, blandly.
"Oh, I sec," responded the policeman.
"You've got the grand cross. This is a
little bit too much. You come along to
the station with us"
The youth went. At the station he
handed the commissary of police his
card. He was former King Manuel of
Portugal. That was air. He established
his Identity, too. Laughing, he left tho
station. The two policemen are still
worrying, however, lest tho laugh con
cealed a yearning for revenge.

Declared Move Is Planned
Against Oil, Tobacco, and
Sensational Testimony in Waters
Pierce Investigation May be
Laid Before Department.
By JUDSON C WELLIVER.
That the whole fabric of big anti
trust litigations will be reopened In
the near future, Involving tho Stand,
ard Oil, Tobacco and Powder trust
cases, and that proceedings may be
started by the Government against
the controlling interests in Standard
Oil, charging contempt of the Fed
eral injunction of dissolution, was
persistently reported today.
The report alleged that the De
partment of Justice was, in fact, al
most ready to move In the matter of
the Oil trust. From New York came
the announcement that a transcript
of sensational testimony now being
taken in tho WaterB-Pierce-Standard
Oil litigation, would be laid before
the department. About the same
time the story was circulated that
the department was getting ready
to proceed against the Standard Oil
directors for violation of tho decree
of dissolution and injunction.
Fight Between Oil Interests.
At tho Department of Justice those
officials who could be reached denied
knowledgo of any such proceeding
None the less, tho story persisted. In
cluding a rumor that an announcement
would bo Issued shortly Indicating In
general the steps to be taken.
At the time when the dissolution of
Standardd Oil was ordered the Waters
Pierce Oil Company was the biggest
subsidiary of the Standard. The Inter
ests that had built It up to be one of
the greatest, corporations of the coun
try seem to have been determined to
abide by tho letter of the court's deci
sion, but when tho dissolution was car
ried out the Standard Interests came
into possession of a controlling portion
of the Waters-Pierce stock, and when
Its annual meeting was nem some
months ago they Insisted on appearing
This the old managerial element,
headed by H. Clay Pierce, opposed and
insisted that stock that was owned by
the Standard Interests was barred, un
der the decree of tho Federal court,
from voting. If this wero held to be
correct, the Pierce interests would eas
ily control. Litigation was started, and
testimony has been taken first in the
West and now in New York. In which
the Pierce people are attempting to
show that, in fact, there has been no
real dissolution, and that the old
Standard OH people are still in control
of the oil Industry Just as effectively as
before the decree.
Claim to Have Proved Case.
The Waters-Pierce lawyers claim that
they have demonstrated this much be
yond all uncertainty. As soon as they
have done taking testimony In New
York they will return to Misbcrl and
press their demand for an order re
straining tho voting of shares of Waters-Pierce
stock held by or In the In
terests of Standard Oil. At the sama
Mime, it Is stated, a transscrlpt of the
testimony tnat has been tunen win oe
supplied to the Department of Justice,
In support of the contention that the In
junction of dissolution has been violated
and that the Standard interests are in
'No Government has been watching
developments in the old Industry for
some months, with a good deal of keen
ness. Recently a group of officers of
one Standard company In the South
west were Indicted In Federal court on
the chartre that tho old methods of un
fair competition, specifically forbidden
ty tho Federal decree, had been re
sumed. This case is still pending.
Would Reopen Big Cases.
The Standard Oil. Powder, and To
bacco trust decrees have all come In for
criticism In Cei'gress, but the Depart
ment of Justice has seemed satisfied
with the performance of the tobacco
md powder people. In whose behalf It
Is claimed they have honestly tried to
acquiesce and restore real, active com
petition. In tho case of the oil Interests,
however, thero has not been bo much

There Is pending in the House a Sen
ate resolution calling on the Department
of Justice to arpeal the tobacco decree
o the Supremo Court it passed the
8enate, but failed of action in the
House, though It is promised that action
will b secured on It at tho coming
session. At the same time a resolution
ha been Introduced In the House, and
If now before the Judiciary Committee,
directing a like appeal In the case of
the Powder trust.
Should the Government proceed
against Standard Oil for contempt, and
should these two resolutions be passed
by Congress, the three biggest Sherman
law cases would be reopened and the
entire set of questions Involved In them
would be .before the courts once more.
