SjiLesson Taught by Mis
III take of the Big
I Delaware
I Washington, Sept. 5. A valuable
I 3 lesson for use In ww has been drawn
l by naval experts from the report that
rt i the Dreadnought Delaware, through
mistake, fired at the repair ship Pan
rtj Ifther Instead of the battleship San
.Marcos in the ordnance experiments
y; in Chesapeake bay a few days ago.
x The fact that the Delaware lost its
5 target and pointed its gun at a vessel
anchored 1,500, yards from the San
-r Marcos, demonstrates, it is claimed,
'?that a ship in battle will not be able
i to center its Are upon any particular
; vessel of the enemy at the great
" range at which any future combats
ikwill be waged say, 16,000 yards.
Wv' However carefully a commander
ft" may draw his plans they may ico awry
i'H if he endeavors to match ship to ship
Mi with the opposing forces. Whenever
J- an enemy's fleet appears upon the
ttf horizon, some experts claim, the war-
K ships must open flro upon any and
1 all of them.
J The reported mistake of the Dela-
Ilfjt ware has served to increase the ap
It prehension which invariably pervades
tL the nav department during the tar
fir get practice period that some seri
h ous mishap may mar the exercises.
jj While there have been many narrow
I , escapes in the past, there has never
n L been an accident to a naval or mer
:l chant vessel through lack of precau
I I tion or misdirected fire. The Atlan
U I tic fleet is now off the Chesapeake
lift capes, demolishing targets. Extraor
Wr dinary care is being tajten to see that
Bjr merchant steamers are kept out of
w range.

I Kansas Poet Made the
Goat in the Sin-
clair Scandal
Kansas City. Sept. 5. Harry Kemp,
the Kansas poet, named by Upton
Sinclair, the author, in divorce pro
ceedings instituted against Mrs. Sin
clair, in a letter to a Kansas City
Mend, declares he was the "goat"
iu the Sinclair matrimonial tangle.
Kemp has found, he says, that he was
the means by which Sinclair obtained
columns of free space in the news
'. papers
"I reajize now," the poet wrote,
"that I was the 'goat and I was
', caught and here I am just beginning
to see how easy 1 was. But It's over
with now and Twill have to nnke the
best of it.
Up i "I came to visit Sinolair at his
lujJ homo in Arden, as I had done before.
rtji I Mrs Sinclair and I were working
jS $ along the same lines and naturally
ifc we fell In with each other a great
.! deal.
"Sinclair gave everything to the
jfif v newspapers about mo. He told them
i'A , nil the stories and, of course, they
! '.; we:e arranged so that he got the
lS beat of them. Of course I am dls-
W graced and I am sorry that it all
Jm 1 happened."
I ! WYOMING DISPLACES
'( THE CONNECTICUT
Iff? '. Washington, Sept. 5. Probably
ltjg within a year, the battleship Con
Mi necticut, America's most famous flag-
I ship, will surrender the banner of Rear
1 Admiral Hugo Ostcrhaus, commander-
H in-chief of the Atlantic fleet to the
dreadnought Wyoming, now nearing
1 i completion, which has been selected
for the signal distinction of being
i flagship of tho navy's real force. The
-Connecticut was the flagship of the
fleet on the famous crulBe around the
world.
From her deck, first Rear Admiral
Evans and later Rear Admiral Sperry
I directed the course of tho battleships
in the unprecedented voyage.
Because of this honor, much senti
ment surrounds the Connecticut and
it Is with reluctance that the naval
officials have decided to displace her
as the flagship of the battleship fleet.
As tho Wyoming will have a dis-
placement of 26,000 tonB, or 10,000
' tons greater than that of tho Con
necticut, the secretary of the navy has
concluded that the latter will be so
- far outclassed that she muBt give way
. to her mightier sister, WTille the
Delaware, North Dakota, Utah and
," Florida all arc larger than the Con
necticut, the difference 1b not suffl
Y cient to cause a change in the flag-
' ship The Wyoming, and its twin, the
Arkansas, will bo the greatest vessels
': atIoat- . , .
S - , According to the present schedule,
3 11 the Wyoming will bo finished July 2.

ciety women attended a wrestling
bout. A large box party in the upper
grandstand, including Mrs. Hobart C.

huge crowd, the boundless enthusiasm,
and the open air arena with its pow

Accuses Taft of At
tempting Bribery
San Francisco,. SepL 5. The action i
of President Taft on the Arizona I
statehood bill eliminating the recall
of the judiciary, was denounced, as
an attempt at the bribery of a people,
by Senator Moses E. Clapp of Min
nesota, at a banquet given tonight b5
the Direct Legislation league.
"What shall we say of a policy to
force an electorate to forswear Us
convictions as the price of admis
sion to the Union?" he said. "It sav
ors of the dark ages. It is an attempt
at the bribery of a people There
are two cases of bribery now being
investigated by the senate, yet in the
face of that, here Is an attempt to
bribe a whole people. JheMnsult to
the people of Arizona will react on
the opponents of the recall of the
judiciary and will do much to further
the recall of the judiciary through
out the United States
"The fight against the recall of the
judiciary Is tho last stand of special
interests."
Senator Clapp also attacked the
Payne-Aldrich tariff law, advocated
woman's suffrage, and outlined the
benefits to be derived from tho pass
age of the Initiative, referendum and
recall amendments to the constitution
-of California, which will be voted on
October 10.
Governor Hiram W. Johnson, who
acted as toastmaster, declared that the
most effective Weapons for the protec

Gotch-Hackenschmidt
Contest Did Not Look
Good to Referee
i
Chicago, Sept. 5. Calling all bets
off on the Gotch-Hackenschmidt wrest
ling match yesterday has raised a
storm of protests 'by those who had
money up on the winner. Herman
F. Schuettler, assistant chief of po
lice, last night explained the action
by saying that such procedure is cus
tomary. An added jeason ho said, is
that the police' are determined to
stamp out gamming in the city.
"Referee Smith," Chief Schuettler
explained, "proposed that the bets be
called off His reason was that In
case the match turned out to be a poor
one, as It did, there would be a tre
mendous 'squawk' from the bettors,
and that the wrestling game-would re
ceive a serious 'setback in Chicago
"You understand it is quite custom
arv fo call "bets pff-inevents of this
kind, irhas hfdoeffwrrI-atbebe!
tors will back their opinions regard
less of the announcement
"One more fiasco like this, and
wrestling Is a dead card in Chicago."
Chicago. Sept. 5 George Hacken
schmldt slept soundly last n'ght. The
restlessness from which he is said to
have suffered for several night prior
to his match with Frank Gotch, and
which had been put forward as an
excuse for his defeat, apparently had
disappeared. He still complained of
pain in tho knee, which had been
.given a sevore wrench'ng bv -the
Iowan. 'but there was no Indication
of a serious injury, and the Russian is
expected to sail from New York for
England on September 9.
Gotch also hr.d a good night's sleep,
being In bed shortly after 10 o'clock,
and was not visible to callers until
well on toward noon today. He will
return to his Iowa farm, leaving for

Man Accused of Slaying
' His .Wife Leaves Wit-
ness Stand
Chesterfield Courthouse, Va., Sept. .
6. After asking Henry Clay Beattle,
Jr., indicted for wife murder, the one
question as to how he could account
for the transition of the same shotgun
from the hands of Paul Beattle, his
cousin, on Saturday nigtit, to the j
hands of tho alleged highwayman on
the following Tuesday night, the pros- ,
ecutlon ended Its cross-examination
of tho prisoner today. The accused
denied that he knew" his cousin Paul
had a gun on the Saturday night in .
question, or that he was with him
during that week.
The commonwealth thereupon be
gan its attack, ori the prisoner's story.
The rebuttal was practically an at
tempt to corroborate Paul Beattle as
to his alleged meeting with Henry on
Tuesday n!ght to arrange for the de
livery of a shotgun to his cousin on
tho Saturday following.
Several witnesses testlf'ed that they
Saw the two cousins together on
Thursday, and Mrs. E. J. Houchens,
mother-in-law of Paul, stated that
Henry brought Paul home In a ma
Chine' that same evening
A second point taken up by the com
monwealth was an assault on E. H.
Neblitt's testimony that Paul had a
shotgun on the bridge where he
worked, on the Saturday night follow
ing the alleged transfer of the gun.
Witnesses testified that Paul had
no gun at the bridge that day.
Chesterfield Courthouse, Sept. 5.
Henry Clay Beattle, Jr., indicted for
wife murder, at 9:30 o'clock today,
ajain took the witness stand and pros
ecutor L. O. Wenderburgresumed his
cross-examination,, court convening at
an earlier hour than usual so as to
complete the prisoner's testimony to
day Judge Watson announced that it
seemed to the court that the case
along Its main lines had been de
veloped carefully and at great length,
and that It had reached the stage
where,. the court would be justified in
nlncirig somejllmlt on counseL,.,-f .,,
a half houTs: of direct examination and
cross-examination of three and a ha'f
hours yesterday, the examination ot
the prisoner should not be a test of
phslcal endurance and that the court
would permit an hour more of cross
examination and only a half hour of
re-direct examination.
Mr' Wenderburg said ho onlv in
tended to ask one or two questions.
"Mr. Beattle," he began, "will you
explain how the same gun which
your cousin bought on Saturlav night
was in the woods on the Midlothian
turnpike that night?"
"1 didn't know anything about the
gun. I didn't Pee it until the highway
man raised It.'
"And will you admit that if your
wife had not suggested the ride, you
would not have been there?"
"No, my mind wasn't made up as to
thp ride when mv wife suggested it."
"Well, how did the man with the
gun know that you and your wlfo
.-., nincr ,,r )hn mail ihnf nicht?"
"We protest," said counsel for the
defense, and the Judge sustained them.
Mr. Wende'nburg here concluded his
cross-examination.
Mr. Smith said no re-direct exam
ination was Intended, and the prison
er was excused at 9:37 o'clock, jirn
seven minutes after he took tho
stand.
. Only a meager crowd was in tho ;
court room on account of tho early
hour.
Paul Beattle. cousin of the accused,
was brought to the vicinity of the
court house by the prosecution and
Mr. Wendenburg said he intended to
put him on the stand In rebuttal.
Tho prisoner walked back to the bir
sumrlsed at the brevity of his exam
ination, askln; Judge Watson as ho
rose from the witness stand chair 1'
there were not additional questions.
"That will be all," replied the judge,
who remarked that perhaps ho had
been over-generous in his limitation
on counsel
Harry Latham was tec first witness
called by the prosecution in rebuttal.
Latham was alleged to have statod
that while with the prisoner, preced
ing the murder, Beattle. immediate
Iv after leaving a telephone, said he
was going to Short and Main streets
In Richmond. Paul Beattle had tes
tified that ho met Henry on Thurs
dav night at that Intersection.
In his testimony, however, Latham
maintained that all he knew was that
Beattle had montioned going to Short
and Main streets. He knew nothing
as to the previous telephone conver
sation or whom the accused intended
to meet.
Telophone Conversation.
W R. Hart, who was with Latham
was called. He said he had been a
friend of tho accused for fifteen years.
On the Thuradav night preceding the
murder, Hart sal 1 he overheard Beat
tlo say on the telephone. "Wiil be

when he came from the telephone Un
accused explained he was going to

French ambassador, M. Cambon, and

Wild rumors are being circulated Iu

Stettin, large sums of money have
been withdrawn from the savings
banks, owing to rumors that war was
Impending. The banks are enforcing

of depositors to withdraw funds must

outbreak of illness among the troops,
however, was the reason for the re

Emperor William In the harbor here
this morning, thousands of spectators
observing the fleet as it could take to

The three newest battleships of the
Ostfrlestand type, did not join the

they are still undergoing trials.
Though fully completed, these threo
30,000-ton warships remained at ar.-,
chor in the harbor and saluted the
