CAMILLE WEIDENFELD'S ATTOR
NEYS TRY TO ESTABLISH
STANDING IN COURT
NEW YORK BROKER
COMES IN UNEXPECTEDLY
Lawyers Representing Man Said to
Have Backed "Elusive Peter" Don't
Question Legality of Retirement of
Northern Pacific Preferred Stock.
The Northern Securities case was
taken up in the United States court
yesterday morning before Judge Ami
don. No appearance in behalf of elu-
Bive Peter Power was anticipated, but
to the surprise of many, Camille Weid
enfeld, a New York stock broker, in
tervened in behalf of the invisible
Peter, asking the same relief. Mr.
Weidenfeld was represented by M. H.
Boutelle of Minneapolis and A. W.
Bulkeley, of Chicago, Power's former
attorneys. C. W. Bunn and Frank
B. Kellogg, of St. Paul, represented
the Northern Pacific railroad. It is
(asserted that Weidenfeld has been be
hind the case from the beginning and
contributed tlie money for its prosecu
Mr. Bunn, in his argument, said that
the Northern Pacific company would
be glad to secure a decree on the mer
its of the case. Mr. Bunn declared
his belief that Weidenfeld was trying
to Intervene from corrupt motives and
that the attempted intervenion was in
furtherance of a conspiracy. Mr. Bunn
contended that the retirement of the
Northern Pacific preferred stock was a
perfectly legal transaction, and that
the owners of the stock could not par
ticipate in the obligations which were
Bold in order to retire the stock.
Doesn't Question Legality.
Mr. Boutelle submitted a copy of the
petition of Weidenfeld, which differed
somewhat from the Peter Power com
plaint. Mr. Boutelle said he didn't
question the legality of the retirement
of the preferred stock of the Northern
Pacific as a separate and isolated
proposition, but he alleged that this
transaction was but part and parcel
of the consummation of a, grander
scheme, the ultimate object of which
was to place the controlling interest
of the railroad companies—the North
ern Pacific, Great Northern and Chi
cago, Burlington & Quincy—in the
Northern Securities company. This,
he maintained was illegal inasmuch as
It was a device by which the interests
of two competing and parallel rail
roads became identified in the holding
of stock, a scheme which was in viola
tion of the constitution of the state
of Minnesota and other states through
which the railroads ran.
Mr. Boutelle described the course of
the Northern Pacific and cites the
statute which provides that parallel
and competing lines shall not effect
combinations within the state.
Argue Weidenfeld's Standing.
Judge Amidon interrupted the argu
ment of Mr. Boutelle, and said that
one of the important questions in the
case was whether Camille Weidenfeld
could intervene, and whether he had
any standing in this court The judge
asked counsel to present argument to
clear up in this matter before going
Mr. Boutelle stated that no objection
had been made by the defendant in the
case, but was prepared to show that,
•While Peter Power, or any other stock
holder, who made the original com
plaint in behalf of himself or any
stockholder who might wish to partici
pate, had failed to show their interest
In the stock, there was no reason why
any other stockholder could not come
in and prove his interest in the ques
The entire afternoon was consumed
by the argument of the question of
the right of Weidenfeld to intervene.
Mr. Bunn and Mr. Kellogg contending
that he had no right to do so. Kellogg
was talking when court adjourned un
til 10 a. m. today.
MILLS SEEK MORE MEN.
Eight-Hour Schedule Proves Costly to
Flour mills in Minneapolis will be
compelled to employ from 24 to 26 per
cent more labor than was required be
fore the new schedule as to hours and
wages was agreed on. There were 464
men affected by the change, directly
and indirectly, and at least 100 more
will have to be put on when the eight
hour shifts are started.
This means that the mills will pay
out $7,200 more in wages per month
than before, a total difference in a year
of $90,000. Advertisements for millers,
oilers and sweepers have already ap
peared, and it is expected that most of
the men to be taken on will come from
Superior and Milwaukee. Many let
ters have already been received from
mill employes at these places asking
for positions, should the eight-hour
Bchedule be adopted.

A NEW JUNGLE
FOR BABY TIGER
As the Pet of Small Boy, Yaqui Lives
ill Style at the Waldorf-
NEW YORK, Sept. 29.—Don't
get unduly alarmed if you hear
loud cries on the tenth floor of the
Waldorf-Astoria. It's only a young
tiger in room 1072, the pet of little
four-year-old Carl Harlow, son of W.
P. Harlow, millionaire copper man, who
has a suite there for the winter.
Yaqui is its name —a female cub,
perhaps six weeks old. Its mother
was shot by an Indian near the mouth
of the Yaqui copper mines, of which
Mr. Harlow is president. In the mouth
of the big tiger was tightly clutched
the little one. Mr. Harlow got the
baby and promptly brought it home
to his boy.
Yaqui is enjoying life. She finds it
far more comfortable taking it easy in
room No. 1072 at the Waldorf-Astoria
than ranging around the state of
Sonora, Mexico. Her birthplace was
Campo Santo Mino, but there she
didn't find a bottle filled with hot milk
every time she was hungry, nor was
there fresh meat ready to chew when
she got her teeth. She will give the
Waldorf-Astoria a very good reference
as to its cuisine, for hot milk and chop
ped beef is the regular Waldorf bill
of fare for tigers.
Yaqui doesn't mind when the waiter
calls the milk "lait chaud," or dubs
the chopped meat "viande nature," as
long as she gets enough.
"Yes," said Mr. Harlow yesterday,
"she's a Mexican tiger whose mother
was shot near our mines in Sonora.
She's pretty lively, too, and I'm afraid
after three months more I won't be
allowed to keep her. I've told my boy
that he can have her for a pet as long
as he can lick her. But things are
getting pretty serious already.
"You ought to see Carl's legs now.
They're all scratched up by the tiger.
Yaqui is getting pretty well able to
hold her own. It's only a question of a
little while now when I shall have to
give her to the Zoo. Just now she's
ON HER MUSCLE AND
Did Not Want the Poor Fellow Arrest
ed, So She Gave Him a Genteel
NEW YORK, Sept 29. — Mrs.
Mary Sarvis, wife of James
Sarvis. captain of the Long Island
railroad police, believes that a good,
hard cuffing will subdue the ordinary
burglar. She gave a man of that class
a sound thrashing in her home late
The Sarvis family occupies the
ground floor of the apartment house at
No. 125 Fifth street, Long Island City.
On Thursday night while Mrs. Sar
vis, who is thirty-eight years old and
a well built woman, was seated in the
parlor of her home awaiting the arriv
al of her husband, a servant rushed
into the parlor and informed her that
there was a burglar in the house.
"Go back in the kitchen and I will
look after the burglar," said Mrs. Sar
vis, starting to look through her
apartment. Crouching in a corner of
the bathroom she found a tall, slim
man of light complexion, wearing a suit
of light clothing, but having no hat.
She caught hold of the stranger, who,
when he looked at the determined
woman, said: "Please let me go, lam
"Oh, yes, you are," said Mrs. Sarvis,
who immediately began to trounce the
intruder. She cuffed him all the way
to the street door and then threw him
from the stoop to the pavement.
"I only gave him a few punches,
which was better than having him ar
rested," said Mrs. Sarvis last night to
a World reporter. "He has our keys
and I think I know him. If I ever
run across him, I will compel him to
give them back."

slightly rattled, he stuck to his story.
"It might possibly have been some
one else who told you to go with Cohen,
might it not?" demanded the attorney.
"You are sure it was the chief?"
"Why didn't you tell Mr. Boardman
when he asked you if the chief told you
to go with Cohen to those places?"
"I don't know."
"You just remembered it now?"
"No, sir. I never forgot it."

called for redirect examination.
"How did you happen to go to the
office of Mr. Welch?" asked Mr. Board
"I was sent for."
"Who was there?"
"Mr. Welch, the chief and I think
"Ames was chief then?"
"And you acted under his orders?"
A call was made for Addie Mills,
but she was not in the court room, and
there was a delay until she was sent
for. The state had all its evidence in,
with this exception, and gave notice
that it would rest.
Mr. Welch stated that he would ar
gue for a dismissal, and the jury was
excused during the argument.
Motion to Dismiss Denied.
At its conclusion Judge Brooks de
nied the motion.
Judge Brooks stated that the serious
question in the case was as to whether
or not Cohen was the go-between. If
he was, the fact that the same ma
chinery was used in every case would
make the testimony material. There
were circumstances in each case that
was like the Addie Mills case, and it
was a question to go to the jury, as
tending to prove whether Cohen was
the agent or go-between or not. ■

ZOLA'S FATE TRAGIC
Continued From First Page.
Zolas passed the night in their mas
ter's bedroom. They were alive this
morning. It is believed they owe their
lives to the fact that one slept on the
bed and the other on a chair, thus es
caping the heavy carbonic gas whiqh
settled near the floor.
A druggist, who was the first to ar
rive at the house to attend M. Zola and
his wife, said:
"When I entered the bedroom M.
Zola was lying partly on the floor, ko
especial odor likely to cause asphyx
iation was distinguishable. M. and
Mme. Zola did not present exclusive
symptoms of asphyxiation. Their
faces were contorted and their lips
bloodless, but not violet colored. I
think the accident was probably caused
by the Zolas inhaling heavy carbonic
gas, which lay mainly below the level
of the high bed. This would account
for Mme. Zola's escape. They were
not suffocated on the bed. M. Zola
was awakened by the effects of the
gas and tried to rise, but he was seized
with vomiting, fainted and fell to the
floor, where he was suffocated. Mme.

In a second report the commissary of

due to asphyxiation.
Dr. Leyrmand, who attended M. and

he entered the room.
The prefect of Paris has ordered the
city architect to examine the bedroom

The Novelist's Career.
Emil Zola was born in Paris April 2,
1840; the son of an Italian engineer.
After working for Paris publishers
and writing for the press he attempted
fiction with successs. He first appeared
as a novelist in "The Mysteries of Mar
seilles." "Therese Raquin" further ex
hibited his remarkable power of criti
cal analysis of human nature. 'L'As
sommoir," perhaps his most popular
work, has gone through fifty editions.
Author of "Nana," "Pot Bouille," "The
Earth," "The Human Brute" and other
works, M. Zola was appointed a knight
of the Legion of Honor in 1888 and
elected (April, 1891) president of the
Society of Men of Letters. In 1892 he
published "The Downfall" and "Doctor
Pascal" in June, 1893. This book was
the final volume of the famous Rougon
Macquart series of twenty volumes,

RELIES ON STATUTE
Robert M. Snyder, Banker and Pro
moter, Tried on Charges of
Bribery in St. Louis.
ST. LOUIS, Mo., Sept. 29.—The first
day's proceedings in the trial of Robert
M. Snyder, the banker and promoter,
of Kansas City and New York, on
charges of bribery in connection with
the passage of the Central Traction
bill several years ago, ended in a com
plete victory for the state, represented
by Circuit Attorney Joseph W. Folk,
every objection offered by the defense
being overruled by Judge Ryan.
Snyder was arraigned, but refused
to plead, and the court ordered the
clerk to enter a plea of not guilty. To
morrow the selection of a jury will
begin. It will then devolve upon the
state to prove that the defendant is
not a resident of Missouri. The stat
ute of limitations, which has sheltered
all the officials who took part in the
deal, is the legal loophole through
which Snyder's attorneys hope to pull
him to liberty.
The law is plain. If Snyder, at the
time of his indictment, had lived in
Missouri for three years since the date
of the bill's passage, he cannot be pros
ecuted for his part in the transaction.
If he had lived outside of the state
for so long a time as to reduce his
term of residence in the state to less
than three years, prosecution is possi
ble. The defense is confident of prov
ing residence in the state, namely, at
Mr. Folk, on the other hand, is con
fident of proving that Snyder has been
a resident of New York city during
the greater part of the four years
which passed between the crime and
the indictment. The punishment of
the crime with which Snyder is charg
ed is imprisonment in the penitentiary
for a term not exceeding seven years.

MANEUVERS AT FORT RILEY

ing over a soggy field, swept at inter
vals by blinding rain driven by a for
ty-mile gale the men of the maneuver
division carried out their day's pro
gramme in splendid style. The work
was without a flaw, and at the con
clusion of the day's work the umpires
pronounced it the most satisfactory un
dertaking that has so far been carried
out in the maneuvers.
In working out the problem of the
day it was presumed that a blue force,
with headquarters at Abilene, Kan.,
was operating against a brown force
advancing from the east. A division
of the latter was presumed to have
already reached Stockdale, Kan.
Col. George B. Rodney, of the artil
lery corps, was in command of the
blues and was camped on the banks
of the Republican river, on the Fort
Riley reservation. His command com

squadron of the Eighth cavalry- The
plan of the day for Col. Rodney was
to make a demonstration in force to

the enemy, said to be about ten thou
The brown division, which were sup
posed to be encamped near Stock'lale,
was under the command of Col. James
Miller, of the Twenty-second infantry.
It was reported to Col. Miller that the
command of Col. Rodney was moving
north by way of the Fort Riley reser
vation. He decided to attack and cap
ture the blue enemy if possible or at
least drive the enemy from his direct
line of retreat through Junction City.
After hours of strategic movements
the forces encountered each other and
firing was continuous. It was finally
decided that the forces were so closely
in contact that further continuation
of the maneuvers would simply mean
close-range fighting, and at 12 o'clock
the war for the day was declared over.
Tomorrow's problem is to be the at
tack and defense of a convoy. The lat

wagons and it is thought that the day's
work will present one of the most in
teresting of the series of maneuvers.
