TWO NASTERS PAID HIM.
Associated Press Representative Hir
ed by Ship Company-Lobby
Agaiqst Ship Subsidy.
Washington, June 16.-Representa
tive Humphrey (Wash.), introducer
of the ship subsidy bill, today spoke
in the house upon various forms of
customs among foreign steamship
lines touching American ports and
referred to discriminatory rates
charged for sending American pro
ducts abroad. In the course of his
speech he charged that certain for
eign lines were represented in Wash
ington by a member of the staff of the
In that connection the following
as issued by the Associated Press:
"It having come to the knowledge
the executive officers of the Asso
ed Press that an employe in the
hington office has been engaged

information, an investigation has
een made. It has been disclosed that
while such employment did not at any
time involve any act on the part of
the employe which could in any way
affect the integrity of the service, nor
even interfere with his legitimate and
proper work for the Associated Press,
nevertheless such employment is so
subject to misconception as 'to se
riously impair his usefulness and his
relation to the Associated Press has
in consequence ceased by the accep
tance of his resignation.
"This termination of his long, use
ful and honorable service does not
justify any assumption that he has
been consciously guilty of any mis
conduct, nor that in the work he has
performed for the steamship compa
nies he has done anything which one
not connected with the Associated
Press might not have done with per
This is what Mr. Humphrey said on
"The hired representative 'of Herr
-Ballin and his interests, is here in
Washington toaay on the Istaff of the
Associated' Press, the greatest news
gathering agency in 'theg world. This
gentleman's name is Jerome J. Wil
ber, and when you remember ho~w
close the German merchant marine is

gestive that this representative of

Mr. Humphrey's statement had ref
erence to testimony given before the
house committee which has been in
vestigating the alleged existence of a
lobby in opposition to the ship-subsidy
Fixing the Trade.
In other parts of his ship subsidy
-speech, Mr. Humphery said that by
a method of "fixing" the trade what
South America buys from the United
States is only about 5 per cent of what
they import. Certain great American
trusts, said Mr. Humphrey, received
special rates and privileges from the
foreign ships. .He mentioned the
Standard Oil company, the Steel trust
and the "harvester combine" in this
"The Hamburg-American Packet
company is the greatest power, is the
most gigantic trust, combine and
inonopoly that exists in the world,'
declared Mr. Humphrey. "All the dif
ferent combines and companies on the
.Atlanitic .ocean are also under that
gigantic wo~rking scheme and have a
common understand g. The head of
this greatest of all trusts is the Ham
burg-American line. It is also prob
able that this line exerts, together
-with Japan, a controlling interest in
all of the Pacific conferences."

INDICTMENTS IN COTTON "POOL.i of
Eight Big Speculators Charged With er

- New York, June 17.-The govern- sa
ment came out in the open today, in
its attempt to prove that manipulat-'; bi:
ing the cotton market is against the in
!law. James A. Patten, of Chicago,
and seven fesser figures in the specu- sP
lative field have been indicted, charg- e
ed with conspiracy in restraint of ba
trade, under the Sherman anti-trust p
The indictment was returned by a a
special' Federai grand jury late this
afternoon and handed up before Judge W
Hough, in the United States circuit di
court. Five of those indicted-Pat- c
ten, Eugene B. Scales, Frank B. '
Hayne, William P. Brown and M. H.

quired, through counsel. For the

bench warrants were issued. They 9

Thompson and Charles A. Kittle. d
Immediately the indictment was an
nounced there was an excited break cu
on the New York cotton exchange,
July and August deliveries declining
about $1.50 a bale, July selling at
14.81, and August at 14.35, as against
15.12 and 14.64 at the close of busi
ness on the previous night. te
The bull leaders, however, appeared er
to be in no manner disturbed by the
government's action and by their buy- a
ing orders helped to rally prices dur- c
ing the last few minutes, July closing
at 14.92 and August at 14.49 bid, or of
about 11 to 14 points up from the
low level of the day. is
Five counts are embraced in the in- cc
dictment, which is in blanket form"
and contains 10,000 words. The first
count charges that the defendants
"unlawfully did - conspire with cer
tain corporations, not herein indicted, i
to demand arbitrary, excessive and
monopolistic prices for cotton'."

None of the "conspirators," continu

A VERY QUEER BIRD. 6
The One Young Mark Twain Sprung.
Upon the Seientists.
Mark Twain's father was an orni- D.
thologist. He bad several friends R.
who were also enthusiasts on the su
~subject of birds. Whenever any one th
of them discovered a rara avis it was se
the custom to have a consultation. as
Mark had been a witness of several Ne
of these bird inquests and had noted co
the delight the old men took in dis- no
cussing a new found specimen. One Its
day it occurred to him to provide the he
Hannibal ornithologists with a real gr
circus in the form of a bird. He kill- all
ed a crowx and also a barnyard roos- ea
both the crow and the rooster, he
bstitutted the rooster's tail feath
s for those of the crow, producing
unique effect. When he had the'
eciment nicely prepared he went
his father and, handing it to him,
"Here, father, is a very curious
rd I shot. I thought you would be
terested in it."
The old gentleman gazed upon the
ecimen with astonishment. That
ening the ornithologists of Hanni
.1 were assembled in Mr. Clemens'
rlor. The rare specimen was put
fore them. The discussion was long
d learned. The opinions expressed
are various. One thought the bird
is an offshoot of the bird of para
se family; others had equally ridi
.ous notions as to its ancestry. But
ere iwas one who refused to be
"-ved by the peculiarity of the
rd's tail from the judgment that it
is of the crow family.
"Why, just look here," he said, lift
g the bird by its tail feather. He
t no further. The feathers came
t. There was a quick closing of a
>or. Mr. Clemens started to leave
"Gentlemen," he said. "please ex
tse me a few moments. I will see
tmuel first and explain later."
Reformed Too Soon.
An eminent speaker at the Congre
Ltional church, East Orange, was
ling the other day of a Western
s opinion of the East.
"This man," said the speaker, "was
prominent churchman and had oc
sion to visit New York, where he!
mained for a few days. In writing
his experiences to his wife in the
est he had this to say: 'New York
a great city, but I do wish I had
me here before I was converted.'"
"He says he has never deceived
"He never has."
"He is one, truthful man."
"Not particularly; he's just got
at kind of a wife, that's all."
