Poster and five others, who were charged with using the malls to de fraud in conducting a so-called "bucket shop," returned a verdict of guilty in the United States Dsltrlct Court In Cincinnati Friday. The men found guilty are Louis W. Foster. John Gor man, W. J. Campbell. A. C. Baldwin, John M. Scott and Edwin F. Hell. The penalty la a fine of from $1,000 to $5,- 000, eighteen mouths in the peniten tiary, or both. William J. O'Dell, who died In Cin cinnati several years ago, left an es tate estimated at $2,000,000. He amass ed this fortune by running a bucket hop on a larger scale thaa ever before known in this country, having branch es in all the principal cities and towns in the West and South. At his death the defendants found guilty Friday continued the O'Dell Brokerage Com pany. Gorman, Baldwin, Scott and Hell were formerly telegraph opera tors In the employ of O'Dell. William Dudley, telegraph operator, and Attor ney Thomas Shay, both of whom are dead, were interested as partners at one time. All these men are credited with having cleaned up $1,000,000, most of which, however, Gorman and Dudley and Shay retained. The verdict Is a clean victory for the government, which contended the defendants did not even play the buck et shop game honestly, but by slow wires and fast wires to Chicago and Now York took advantage of the mar ket quotations and cloned out trades with their customers to the best ad vantages to the defendants. mix mm&m Wm3 The Burlington Railway has decided to make a S'j-cent paxaeiiKer rate, effective in Missouri, and this action is expected to end the proceeding to nullify the 2 cent law.

'GENEROSITY IS FORGOTTEN." Special Message to Congress Urges Change in Foraker Act Holds Politicians Irresponsible. President Taft sent to Congress a special message recommending legisla tion at the present extra session to amend the Foraker act, under which Porto Rico Is governed. The President directs attention to "a situation of un usual gravity," the result of the fail ure of the legislative assembly of Porto Rico to pass the usual appropri ation bills, leaving the Island without support after June 30. Porto Rlcans have forgotten the gen-1 crosity or tne unitea states, the Pres ident says, in the desire of certain of their political leaders for power, and he addB that the situation Indicates that the United States has gone too fast In the extension of political rights to the Porto Rlcans. Mr. Taft con cludes that the absolute power of ap propriation should be taken from "those who bave shown themselves too irresponsible to enjoy It." The President suggests to Congress the wisdom of submitting to the appro priation committees the question of qualifying some of the provisions of the fundamental act as to the respect ive Jurisdictions of the executive coun cil and the legislative assembly. But no action of this kind, he says, should be undertaken before the Foraker act Is amended, so that when the legisla tive assembly shall adjourn without making appropriations necessary to carry on the government sums equal to the appropriations In the previous year shall be available from the cur rent revenues and shall be drawn by the warrant of the auditor on the treasurer, countersigned by the gover nor. Such a provision applies to the legislatures of the Philippines, and of Hawaii, and "it has prevented In those two countries any misuse of the power of appropriation." The messnge presents an exhaustive review of conditions on the Island, Us trade, its wealth and the Improved edu cational facilities. It points out that "there never was a time In the history of the Uland when the average pros perity of the Porto Rlcan was higher, his opportunity greater, his liberty in thought and action, more secure." For the first time In its history Porto Rico is living under laws enacted by it own legislature. The President points out that If the Porto Rlcans desire a change In the form of the Foraker act the subject Is a matter of congressional considera tion, dependent upon the effect on real political progress In the Island. 8uch a change, he says, should be sought In an orderly way and not brought to the attention of Congress by 'paralys ing the arm of the existing govern ment." The President says that the Porto Rlcans' forgetfulness of the gen erosity of this government "should not be an occasion for surprise, nor In dealing with a whole people ran It be made the basis of a charge of ingrati tude."

Since the Iiihu ranee department of the Stale of Iowa has been barring certain Minnesota insurance roinpuuiea from do ing biiKiuess in that State. Senator M. L. FonReen, Minneaimlis, offered a r.talia tory measure, under which the romaniea from Iowa will not be emoted license in Minnesota under aimilar conditions. The bill applies to all States which make regulations that would exclude Minnesota companies. By an order of the interior depart ment, about 3,nKMXX acres of land in the counties along the eustern border of Wyoming are to be thrown ohmi at once to homesteader, who will be allowed to take either Hill or IlJfi acre. The land cannot be irrigated and will lie of tiae, therefore, for dry farming only. Those who take the full 324) acre entries must make an attempt to cultivate th land, while those who go in on the smaller holding will not be compelled by the law to do so. The businesa life of l-oudon waa all agog over the owning of the new depart ment tore of the American merchant, Kelfrldge, formerly of Chicago, who bold ly advertised hi intention of showing the Britisher how the Yankee doe thing In that line, lmmeuse throng of people crowded the big store owing to attraction offered, but at the same time the leading 1 million house in dry ?oods accepted the challenge by Inserting big advertisemeut in the pux-ra aud also drawing crowd.

Senator V. K.

The bill carries an appropriation of S50, (MM.) to cover the first two years of tht wk. CAC " CHICAGO. A cheering animation Is seen to be pervading current operations In. trade generally, and conditions have become distinctly encouraging as to the Imme diate outlook. The important develop ments Include the stimulus which cornea from seasonable weather and the opportunity to advance Industrial and farming activities, together with a readjustment of labor controversies which threatened construction lines. A significant feature which fore shadows Increased production at the mills and factories appears in more numerous demands for furnace out puts, steel shapes and equipment. Ai tendency toward rising prices for sui- plies characterizes Iron, textiles, mi nor metals and leather. Important May settlements at the banks and board of trade were promptly liquidated and the demand strengthened for money, although the discount rate for choice commercial paper was unchanged. ' Prices for the leading breadstuffs stand at the highest avcraga for the season, and the profits to farmers In duce larger expenditures for Imple ments, materials and improvements. Forwardings have become heavier to Western points of fabricated steel, wire, harlware, machinery and elec tric appliances. Outdoor 'work Is again remarkably extended, and this creates exceptional deliveries of quarry products, plumb- lug supplies and lumber. Leather working trades obtain satisfactory con tracts, especially for footwear and the market for hides is firmer. April per mits for business structures were forty-five In number and 12,437,350 In value and compare with similar num ber and 11,082,900 In value for April, 1908. Bank clearings, $295,991,231, exceed those of corresponding week in 1908 by 16.9 per cent and compare with 1259,694,815 In 1907. Failures reported In the Chicago dis trict number 30, against 23 last week. 86 In 1908 and 19 In 1907. Those with liabilities over $5,000 number 7, against 7 last week, 9 a year ago and 4 In 1907. Dun's Weekly Review of Trade. NEW YORK. Improvement, In retail trade, some regaining of lost ground In farming operations and a distinctly more op timistic feeline as t trade for the fu ture are the leading favorable features In this week's reports to Bradstreet's. Jobbing and wholesale trade for lmm dlate delivery shows between seasons quiet, but fall trade is developing a better tone and enlarged demand. Per haps the most encouraging feature of the week, business affecting one of the country's basic industries, la the en larged demand, more cheerful tone and higher range of prices reported In the iron and steel industry. Coin cldently, there is "rather more doing In the Western coal trade. The wool market Is strong and act ive at higher prices and leather and hides are selling better at higher quo tations, although fall business In shoes does not develop rapidly. Collections show little change and are still in clined to slowness. Taken as a whole, trade feeling la .optimistic, and much Is hoped from the passing of tariff uncertainty, the development of warm er weather and the progress of crop planting and growth to a point where the business community can safely make calculations as to ultimate out Business failures in the United States for the week ending with May 6 were 214, against 268 last week, 288 in the like week of 190S, 154 in 1907, 162 in 1906 and 158 In 1905.

Leaders In both Senate and House are known to favor such a measure now, and so the prospects are good for such a Jour ney. The President expects to start Across the continent by the Northern route to Seattle, stopping at the larger cities, and there sail to Alaska by the inside route. From Valdez he will return to San Francisco and thence back East by the Southern route. While in Seattle he will attend the Alaska-Yukon Exposition. There Is some talk in Congress of providing for the .purchase and equipment of a complete special train for the use of the executive. In the rotunda of the capltol Wednesday, exercises Incidental to the reinterment of the remains of Maj. L'Enfant In Arlington cemetery were held, with President Taft, Vlce-Presl-dent Sherman and many high Fed eral and District of Columbia officials taking fart. The Vice-President made the principal address. The body, which hitherto had been burled in the graveyard of a Maryland farm, lay in state during the exercises. L'En fant was the French engineer whd helped Washington to lay out the na tional capltol. Ambassador Jusserand also paid a glowing tribute to the memory of bis countryman. President Taft has notified Congress that In tha Venezuelan cases ar rangements were made for the settle ment of the Jaulrett claim and that f the New York and Bermudez Com pany out of court, while the claims to go to arbitration are those of the Orinoco corporation, the Orinoco Steamship Company and that of the United States and Venezuela Com pany. Specific provision is made, how aver, that Venezuela, with the con sent of the United States, may reach an amicable settlement within five months with either the Orinoco cor poration or the United States aud Venezuela Company. Secretary of Agriculture Wilson haa issued a bulletin containing the opin ion of Attorney General Wickeraham affirming the legality of the Referee Board of Experts, headed by Prof. Ira Remsen of Johns Hopkins, which was appointed by President Roosevelt to review the opinions and rulings of Chief Chemist Wiley. This establishes this board as the supreme authority in the execution of the food and drug act. The dispute over the question of re sponsibility and authority in the con duct of the next census, which for several days had threatened either the dismissal of Director North or the re tirement of Secretary Nagel, appears to have been settled amicably after several conferences with the Presl--dent. Mr. North disclaimed any In tention or desire to usurp authority over matters properly belonging to tha Secretary. The seizure of the American schoon er Charles Levi Woodbury for al leged poaching will have a tendency to hasten the reaching of a definite understanding between the American and British Governments as to their attitude toward Hecate straits, which the Canadians desire shall be regard ed a "closed sea" and the right of fishing therein denied to Americans.

Augusta Evans Wilson, Well Xnown for Her Novels, Passes Away. Augusta Evans Wilson, author of "St. Elmo" and many othei novels, popular a generation ago, and still widely read in the South, died at her home In Mobile, Ala., Sunday as the result of an attack of heart failure, fche was born in 1835 In Columbus, Ga. She was the daughter of Matt Ryan and Sarah Howard Evans, one of the oldest families In the South. While a child she removed with her parents to Texas, then a frontlerState. Soon after the Mexican war, her peo ple located In Mobile, Ala. It was there that. In 1868, she married Colonel L. M. Wilson.

It was In 1855 that her first novel, "Inez, a Tale of the Alamo," appeared. It met with only moderate success. Her second novel, "Beulah," published four years later, won Instant apprecia tion and she soon became recognized as one of the leading writers of the ro mantic and Intensely emotional school. ' In 1864 she found time to completo "Macaria," which she sent to a Charleston, S. C, publisher, who copy righted It under the laws of the "Con federate States of America." The book was published on coarse brown paper, all that the printer could obtain, and soon after it left the press the entire edition was confiscated by a federal officer. A blockade runner, however, smuggled one copy through to Havana, Cuba, whence It later was taken to New York City and published. The book met with heavy sales Immediate ly. "St. Elmo," the most popular, most criticised and most widely read of Mrs. Wilson's books, appeared In JsGO. and It Is still one of the "six best sellers" In the South. "Vashtl" and "Lnfelice" followed quickly and In 1887, Mrs. Wil son published "At the Mercy of Ti berius," a strong argument against cir cumstantial evidence as a means of conviction. "A Speckled Bird" was published, and her last book, "Devota," appeared above a year ago. REPORT SHIP LOST WITH 21. Shores, Six Days Overdue, Believed Sunk in Lake Superior. .

Mrs. Boyle, indicted as Mary Doe, was sentenced to twenty-five years in the penitentiary and to pay a fine of $5,000 and costs of the prosecution. Boyle did not cause the scene 1n court which he had threatened and did not utter a word before being sentenced. His counsel, however, pleaded for leniency for both Boyle and his wife. The lawyer said that until a recent period the extreme penalty for kidnaping In this State was ten years and in view of the fact' that the boy had been treated with every consideration and that all care had been taken not to Inflict unneces sary mental anguish upon the parents he felt leniency might be asked with propriety. After, Attorney Miller of counsel for the Boyles had completed his plea for leniency in behalf of his clients Judge Williams told Boyle to stand up and asked him If he bad any thing to say as to why sentence should not be pronounced upon him. Boyle merely said, "I have not," and shook his head. Judge Williams then ad dressed the prisoner and told him of the seriousness of the crime of which he had been convicted.
