Thus Reiterates Woodrow
Wilson in Speaking of the
Trust Regulation Plank.
SHOWS HOW HIT.LES IS
AFTER LABOR'S VOTE
Pueblo, Colo., Oct. 7. That the Cnited
States Steel corporation "Is behind the
third party program in regard to reg
ulation of the trusts" was the charge
made by Gov. Woodrow Wilson in a
speech here today. Corroborative evi
dence of the assertion. he govrnor
said, wan coming to him every day.
"It is a very interesting circum
stance." said Gov. Wilson, "that the
American Steel corporation is behind
the third party program as regards the
regulation of trusts. Now I don't -want
to say that to prejudice you, because
I am not here to indict anybody.
"I am perfectly ready to admit that
the officers of the United States 6-tcel
corporation think that is the best thing
for the United States. My point is that
these men have grown up in the at
mosphere of the things that they them
selves have created and which the Jaw
of the United States has so far at
tempted to destroy. And they now want
a government whjch will perpetuate
these things they have created."
"The humanitarian part of the third
party's program," said the governor
.later, "is a s'ri of chorus which Mr.
Roosevelt is trying to teach the trusts
to sing; because the fundamental part
of the program is that the trusts shall
be recognized a a permanent part of
our economic order and that the gov
ernment shall try to make those trusts
the ministers, the instruments through
which the life of this country shall be
developed on its industrial side."
Publishes Letter From Hilles.
Gov. ilson reached Pueblo at 9:30
oclock and was received by Gov. Shaf
roth and candidates of the Democratic
state ticket. Before his speech on la
bor questions, he gave out the following
letter which he said had been forwarded
to him from Democratic national head
quarters as having been circulated by
Charles D. Hilles, Republican national
chairman, among employers of labor
throughout the country:
"If the November election results In
the choice of a Democratic congress
and Democratic president, new tariff
bills will be enacted at once. In other
words, destructive Democratic tariff
measures, such as president Taf t vetoed
at the last session will become laws.
"Only one thing can prevent this and
that is a protest vote on the part of the
American workingmen. They must
choose between a high standard of liv
ing and that of the underpaid European
workingmen. Do your employes under
stand that this defines the exact dif
ference between the Republican and the
Democratic party, not only as your
produce is concerned, but as pertaining
to all other products of American labor.
If you will kindly send us a list of your
employes who are voters with post
office addresses, each one will be asked
personally "to vote for Taft and Sher
man and the Republican candidate for
congress and told the reason why. I
trust you w?il favor me with this list
at the earliest possible date.
(Signed) "Charles D Hilles,
Ch? rman."
Gov. Wilson said that beyond desir
ing to make the letter public he wished
to make no comment on it. "It speaks
for Itself," he said.

Inquiry Fails to Show "Big
Jack" Selig Was Killed to
Defeat Justice.
CROWD ANXIOUS TO
SEE PEFENDANT
New York, N. Y.. Oct. 7. The death
of "Big Jack Zellg, who was shot by a
fruit vendor, although a severe blow
to the prosecution, caused no change in
the plans of the opening today of the
trial of Dolice .Lieut. Gharles Becker.
! charged with the murder of the gam
bler. Merman .Kosentnai. .xwo nunorea
and fifty talesmen "reported early at
the Criminal Courts' building and curi
ous crowds swarmed through the cor
ridors, waiting to seeBecker brought
across the bridge of sighs from ihe
Tombs.
The first talesman examined, Philip
Herrlich, was challenged peremptorily
by the prosecution because he had for
merly been a policeman.
Becker and the six men indicted with
him were brought into court District
attorney Whitman moved that the trial
of Becke"r proceed separately. His mo
tion was granted.
Mrs. Becker was in court when the
proceedings opened.
The most rigid inquiry on the part
of the police and the district attor
ney's oftice has brought to light noth
ing to indicate that Zelig was killed
to defeat the ends of justice. David
son, his slayer, appeaTs to have been
actuated solely by a desire for personal
revenge on the man he says robbed nlm.
However, it was a remarkable coinci
dence, for through Zelig the state
hoped to show that his gangmen, re
tained by "Jack" Rose, 'shot Rosenthal
at Becker's bidding.
.Little Known of Slajer.
Little is known about Davidson. He
told the police, they say, that he cams
to this city from Peekskill. N. Y five
or six vears a co. He had been a fruit
vdealer, he said, but was no: now in
Only one shot was fired at Zelig. The
bullet took effect back of the gang
leader's ear.
Davidson explained at police head
quarters that after he had been robbed
he went to Jersey City, bought a re
volver and after making several Inef
fectual efforts to get his money back,
chased Zelig aboard a car and shot.
District attorney Whitman interested
himself in the Zelig murder as soon as
he was notified.
Letter From Prisoners.
On Zelig's body were several letters,
including one signed "Whltey," from the
prison where "Whitey" Lewis and other
nrosneetive Becker trial witnesses are
confined. "Frank, Louie and Gyp send,
22...... ... ..,." n nrfftfit.lf'-rf-thrBH
letter read. "I want you to stop-worrying
about us," was another clause.
"We are only up here on a very short
vacation to have a good rest and fat
ten us up."
Zelig's name came into the Rosen
thal murder investigation in its early
stages. According to testimony Jack
Rose is reported to iave given before
the Grand iurv. "BlEr Jack" was the
man who furnished the names of the
four gunmen charged with the murder
of the gambler. These men, "Gyp the
blood." "Lefty Louie." "Whltey" Lewis
and Frank "Dago" CIrofici, were all
known in the underworld as members
of Zelig's gang of gun fighters.
Rose said that as an emissary of po
lice Lieut. Charles Becker he went to
Zellg and told him that the poljce
lieutenant wanted Rosenthal got out
of the way. Zelig at that time was out
on bail on a charge of carrying a con
cealed weapon, which two members of
"Becker's strong arm" squad, detectives
White and Stelnert, had preferred
against him. In 1-eturn for supplying
the gunmen who would kill Rosenthal,
Becker promised, according to Rose, to
have the gun carrying charges against
Zellg dropped. Zelig was on $10,008
bail on this charge.

Sit Around Bonfires at
Polo Grounds.
i world series men
HAVE DAY OF REST
New York, N. Y Oct 7. Sunrise to
day found more than 500 men and boys
at the Polo grounds.
Sitting aroiind bonfires, they had
waited all night for the first chance at
the 4000 upper grandstand seats to be
placed on sale at 9 a. m. Each person
was allowed to buy two- tickets. At the
sale of seats Tuesday only one ticket
will be sold to a person. This is an
11th hour rujing, designed to defeat
speculators.
In the hotel lobbies here are gath
ered hundreds of men notable in the
baseball world, among them presidents
j-opicn ana jounson oi tne two Dig
leagues and August Hermann, of Cin
cinnati, who constitute the supreme
court" of baseball.
All are confident that the coming
series will eclipse all past contests for
the world's championship, not except
ing last year's game, which far sur
passed all former contests.
Although the Giants had an exhibi
tion game arranged with the New York
Americans for the entertainment of the
bluejackets, the day was one of rest
for the world's series men. It is under
stood that Mathewson, Tesreau 'and
Marquard, who will do the brunt of the
pitching for the Giants, will have .
final workout. Larry Doyle's slight in
jury suffered at Brooklyn Friday left
no ill effects and the New York cap

The players were in fine form. Gard

A SONORA REBEL BAND

Cananea, Son- Mex Oct. 7. Isidro

mand of about 60 men, came into Can
anea at about 6:3Cr oclock Saturday
and went to the office of the prefect,
where they surrendered themselves.
The men were allowed freedom on their
own recognizance, and. the rebel leadr
was treated in a like manner.
The cold nights now beins experi
enced In this portion or the country is
supposed to have bean instrumental in
causing the rebels to surrender, as
many of them were poorly dressed.
About 15 of the number were without
rifles and the majority had but small
quantities of ammmnition.
The prefectura is awaiting instruc
tions from Mexico City as to the dis
posal of the rebels and their leader.
Fernando Escoboza (Huero, as he is
known), a brother of Isidro, is also a
member of the rebel command.
Escoboza acknowledged his being
foolish in taking up arms against his
country and says he realizes now what
he has done. He offered to take the
federals to tl.e place where there are

changes in the official or clerical force
of the American National bank except
the election of a president." Mr. Wyatt
said.
At the sneoial mpptincr of the Amer-
r lean National bank directors Monday
morning the resignation or .air. wingo
was read and accepted. A resolution
of appreciation of his efforts in behalf
of the bank was introduced by X M.
AVyatt and passed unanimously by the
board. Mr. Wingo has been chief active
executive officer of the American Na
tional bank since it was organized in
1905. He was associated with Mr.
Wyatt in the organization of the barJc
and they have held executive positions
in the bank since that time. Before
the organization of the American Na
tional, Mr. Wingo was connected with
the Lowden National bank, which was
liquidated as was the National Ex
change bank, of which Mr. Wyatt was
an oincer.
Other rebels, and also says he could
'douse theaureailflrpfiJei-Antojjjo
Kojas and US' entire commana oi awni
400 men. This offer has been made
known to the government officials at
the capital, and it Is believed that steps
will soon -be taken for the acceptance
of the surrender of Rojas and his men,
who. bv the way. comprise the only
j rebel command of any size in the state
oi sonora at tne present .time.
Escoboza has been on the war path
for almost IS months and his depreda
tions are many. There are innumera
ble people in this portion of the state
who have suffered large losses at his
hands. Sentiment seems to be strongly
against the granting of amnesty to
Escoboza and other rebel leaders. The
government has already granted am
nesty to all rebels, but not to their
leaders, but what will be done In the
case of Escoboza is problematical at
present. However, he is now given the
freedom of the city and goes where
he desires at will.
