Not Total Abstainer Either, Roosevelt
Tells Jury.?Former President
Marquette, Mich., May 27.?Th odore
Roosevelt, a picture of ruddy vigor
and perfect health, turned a' square
jaw in the direction of twelve farmers,
teamsters, mintrs and woodsmen in
court today and gave his character
for sobriety as "not a total abstainer,"
but never intoxicated in his life. His
testimony and that of others corroborated
such a description of abstemious

Hardening of the Arteries Kills the
Poor as Hell as tne iticn.
In the "Health and Horse-Power" department
of the May American Magazine,
Dr. Woods Hutchinson presents
many new facts about hardening cf the
arteries. Following is an extract
from his article:
"The important question is. What
causes these prcmature occurrences of
t,his comparatively natural old-age
"Ten or fifteen ^ears ago, we were
considerably more sure in our reply
to this question than we are today.
t+ me almost, imani^ouslv taken for
granted that the principle cause of
this premature stiffening and harden- i
ing of the arteries was the so-called
strains of modern civilized life, particularly
high living, hard drinking
and incessant brain work.
"All of these beliefs have pretty
much vanished into thin air, under the >
acid test of cold-blooded investigation
and analysis. So far from arteriosclerosis
being a modern disease, some of |
the most perfect and typical instances
of it on record have been taken from
the blood vessels of Egyptian mummies
embalmed in the fifteenth cena
iur.y jd. v
Tt was a disease of meat eaters
and particularly wine drinkers, solely
because classes able to indulge in
these extravagant tastes also had
money to pay for more careful study j
and elaborate diagnoses, which re- i
vealed the condition. It is now known
to be twice as common in sweat shop
workers as arrong the Four Hundred. 1
"It was typically a disease of;
brain workers, solely because the in- j
telligence and resources of this class |
of the community brought them into |
consultation rooms tor advice ana assistance.
It is now found to be more
than twice as common among dock
hands and day laborers as among
merchants and lawyers and college j
professors. One finding will serve i
as a sample.
"Some three thousand patients under
forty years of age studied in one
of our great hospitals and carefully
showed a distribution as follows:
"Of those who had used alcohol to
excess, about ten per cent showed more
or less arteriosclerosis.
"Of those who had suffered within
ten or fifteen years from one of the
graver infections, such as tuberculosis,
typhoid, pneumonia, or syphilis,
but had not used alcohol to excess,
about twenty per cent had more or
less arteriosclerosis. While of those
who had been engaged in occupations
involving severe and prolonged muscular
strain, such as dock laborers,
construction gangs, lumbermen, steel
and iron workers, and so forth, but
had not indulged in alcohol to excess,
over forty per cent showed this premature
change, So that we are now
in a position to say that the two
most potent causes of this 'new disease
of civilization 9\id of brain worries'
are muscular overstrain and infectious

Congressional Circles Stirred by Em- i
pHitic Statement of President.
Washington, May 26.?President Wilson
stirred congressional circles today
with an -emphatic statement denouncing
the "industrious" and "insidious"
lobby in Washington attempting to j
create public sentiment against certain
features of the Underwood tariff bill.
This was accepted at the Capital as
referring to the unusual efforts being
made against free raw wool and free
While the president was declaring :t
his opinion that the public should be
; relieved "from the intolerable burd-en,"
Senators and representatives were
viewing on every hand the evidences of
the lobbyists which beset them; and
significance was attached to a statement
made by Senator Simmons, chairman
of the finance committee, which
j now has the tariff bill in hand, that, in
his opinion, the lobbyists were not
(making any headway.

I Senator Kenyon, of Iowa, and Representative,
C. B. Smith, of New York,
have declared their intention to press
bills they have introduced which
would restrict the work of lobbyists,
require their registration, and require
that they be licensed to appear before
any committee or to carry on a campaign
for or against proposed legislation.
Heavy penalties would be im
posed for violations.
Leaders Support Statement.
Democratic leaders were almost unanimous
in support of the president's*
statement, maintaining that they are
well able to handle the important
pending tariff legislation, and that

committee and demoeratic oau- |

has seldom seen so numerous, so industrious
or so insidious a lobby. The
newspapers are being filled with paid
advertisements calculated to mislead
the judgment of public men not only,
but also the public opinion of the country
itself. There is every evidence
that money without limit is being
spent to sustain this lobby and to create
an appearance of a pressure of
public opinion antagonistic to some of
the chief items of the tariff bill.

Spartanburg, May 26.?If W. Jordon
Massee, the Macon capitalist, follows
his announced intention of refusing to
obey the order of the South Carolina
supreme court requiring him to surrender
to the sheriff of Spartr.nburg
county for delivery to the Tennessee
authorities on a criminal charge, i
proceedings will be instituted for the
forfeiture of his $10,000 bond, furnished
by W. E. Burnett, president of the
First National Bank, of Spartanburg.
Moreover, Governor Blease will be
asked to make requisition on Governor
Brown for Massee's extradition to this
State on the charge of being a fugitive
This is the propose^ course as outlined
by Samuel J. Nicholls, associate
counsel for the State of Tennessee in
the proceedings. Massee is quoted in
a Macon dispatch as saying that his
bond was cancelled when Judge Sease
released him on habeas corpus proceedings
after his arrest her-e on July
25 last, and that there is no "string,"
therefore, by which he can be brought
back to South Carolina. Mr. Nicholls
said today that since Judge Sease's
order had be-en reversed by the supreme
court that part of it cancelling
the bond was null and void, and the
bond still remained in force.

TURMOIL I> THE PHAGAN CASE.
Political Factions Continue Charges
and counter tnarges.
Atlanta, Ga., May 26.?There was no
abatement today of the turmoil which
has arisen in local political and police
circles by the charges of bribe offering,
graft and incompetency in connection
with the Mary Phagan murder case.
Statements and counterstatements
were issued by each faction, each attacking
the other side to the controversy.
One of the interesting developments
of the day was the publication of statements
indicating that two of the best
known private detective agencies in
the country, that have been engaged
in the attempt to solve the Phagan
murder, are at loggerheads. Another
angle to this collateral quarrel was
given when it became known that the
local police officials have been seeking
information from police departments
of other cities to discredit the
representative here of one of the noted
Chief of Police James L. Beavers
and Chief of Detectives N. A. Lanford
today issued statements declaring
their intention of laying before the
Fulton county grand jury next F1 iday
