Against Grafting Is Going on All
Over the Country — Remedy for

CLEVELAND, Nov. 3.— The Central

about 5000, was tonight completely
filled with an enthusiastic audience
which) gathered to hear a political ad
dress by Governor Joseph W. Folk of
Missouri In support of the state Demo
Governor Folk said:
"A political revival is going on all
over the land against grafting. The
people of Philadelphia, New York, Buf
fnlo, San Francisco nnd Cincinnati are
fighting for their city and to regain
the government they have lost. A
wonderful revolution has been wrought
In the conscience of mankind in the
lnst four years. We have got to a
point In this country when patriotism
means little more than a word. A new
standard has been established. The
remedy for corruption has been found
in the hearts of the people.
"When any number of Individuals se
cure a monopoly on sonip necessary of
life and exact from the people more
than the natural price, It Is a graft.
Such is the trust. This graft Is the
outgrowth of the greater graft known
as the protective tariff, by which a
class are given np^clal privileges
whereby they can prey upon the rest
of the people.
■ "A special privilege is at the bottom
of every graft."
STICKNEY ON DEBATE BILL

Pass, but Make Little Dlf.
By Associated Press.
KANSAS CITY, Nov. 3.— G. B. Stlek
ney, president of the Chicago, Great
Western railway, who was in Kansas
City today on his way to Galveston, Is
quoted as saying that President Roose
velt's proposed rate bill will pass con
"I believe that the Ksch-Townsend
hill will be adopted by congress," said
Mr. Stickney. "But I don't believe it
will make any immediate appreciable
difference to shippers. Yet, as a na
tional declaration of principle, it means
everything. The president's recom
mendation means, in effect, that when
the shipper disputes the fairness of a
railroad rate -the two parties shall go
before an arbitration tribunal whose
direction shall become a common' rule
for the kind of freight in question. The
other method, that of going to law,
"The real objection of railroad men
to the appointment of nny tribunal Is
a wholesome distrust of the sort of
men who may be appointed. The posi
tion should be one of dignity with a
life appointment, similar In its terms
to that of the United States supreme
court. If appointment of that sort can
be guaranteed, I believe that the man
ager of every Important railroad In the
country will indorse the measures."

MILLIONAIRE ASKS PENSION
Claims He Doesn't Need Money, but
Wants to Perfect War
By Associated Press,
WASHINGTON, Nov. 3.— Pensions for
millionaires Is one of the new develop
ment* under the executive order of
last year, making nge the only disabil
ity necessary for the granting of n
service pension. According to Com •
nilsslnner of Pensions Warren, the ap
plication of a millionaire for ft pension
hns been recently favorably passed up
on. He does not want the pension,
according to the commissioner, on ac
count of the money It carried with It,
but simply to perfect his record of
honorable service In the Civil War.
This view of the age disability order
Is being taken by many well to do vet
erans who would not otherwise apply for
pensions. The fact that they nre eligi
ble and performed the service stipu
lated In behalf of the government and
that the government Is willing to recog
nize this service by a pension and ttiQ
accompanying records of the same,
make the service pension a desirable
addition to family records.
The commissioner does not look upon
this class of pensions as nn undeslrabla
burden for the government to bear. He
takes the view thnt the money distrib
uted Is used by the nppllcnnt to relieve
want. In the ense of the millionaire
pensioner he has knowledge thnt the

Next day she pleaded guilty In the
police court and was fined $20 and

plenty left to pay my fine," she told
the police, "but would not do so be

EQUITABLE'S ASSETS ARE
SOUND, SAYS MORTON
INCOME OF SOCIETY WILL NOT
Says Report of Expert Accountants
Has Been Delayed on Account of
Difficulty in Getting Valuations
on Foreign Buildings
By Associated Press.
I NEW YORK, Nov. 3.— Paul Morton,
president of the Equitable Life Society,
returned yesterday to New York from
his western trip and told of an address
which he delivered the night before
In Pittsburg before a large body of
representatives of the Equitable's
Western Pennsylvania agency on the
occasion of its twenty-fifth anniver
Among other things he said:
"I have been much disappointed In
not being able before this time to pre
sent the report of the expert account
ants. The delay Is being caused by
the length of time It takes to get our
foreign buildings appraised and by the
very great work of valuing the real es
tate we own and have mortgages on In
this country. This thing, I am happy
to tell: Our assets are all on hand.
None of them Is missing. Some of our
real estate has been carried on too
high a valuation, and some of our bank
and trust company stocks have been
valued too high on the basis of what
they might be sold for qulcky; but
whatever the change in the valuation
of assets may be, it will in no way
reduce the income of the society, and
I promise you that the reduction In ex
penses of administration, if capital
ized, would more than make good any
apparent reduction in our assets. The
reduction in expenditures will be great
er than I have ever promised.
"I believe the Insurance business
should be properly safeguarded with
reasonable laws, but I am vigorously
against all kinds of 'strike' legislation,
and believe it has been greatly stimu
lated by the success It has heretofore
met. It, will be the policy not in any
way to yield to demands or threats
from such a source, and I have a posi
tive conviction that, while In some In
stances we may get unfair, even vi
cious laws, in the long run we will be
decidedly better off If we Btand stead
fast for plnciples and not bow to ex
"The Equitable has had more thnn
Its full share of Investigation, in my
opinion, theee examinations are all go-
