Solicitor General to Submit a .Motion
Next Monday Danger that It
Will Be Dlsnilaactl.
"WASHINGTON. Oct. S.-The Supreme
Court convened to-day. All the members
of tho court were present except Justice
Gray and Justice McKenna. who are absent
at Virginia Springs. Chief Justice Fuller
announced that no motions except those
for admission to practice before' the court
would be entertained to-day, but that the
docket would be called to-morrow. About
twenty lawyers from the various States
were admitted to practice. The session
lasted only seven minutes. The number
of cases on the calendar at the opening
of the court to-day was 437. 174 having
been added during the recess. This Is
twenty-three more cases than were upon
the calendar at the opening of court a year
Next Monday Solicitor General Richard,
Of the Department of Justice, will submit
a motion relative to the Neely case, now
pending before the cour;, on an appeal
from the decision of Judge Wallace, of New
York, denying a writ of habeas corpus. A
motion will probably be made to advance
the case. The Department of Justice Is
very anxious to procure a decision In the
main question involved, namely, the con
stitutionality of the law under which it
is proposed to extradite Neely to Cuba.
There U graver danger, however, of a
dismissal of the appeal owing to the differ
ence of opinion which prevails as to the
exact legal status of Neely. The applica
tion for a writ of habeas corpus before
Judge Wallace was made upon the theory
that Neely was then In the custody of
the United States marshal under a process
to be taken to Cuba, while Judge Lacombe.
before whom the original proceeding took
place, says that Neely was not in the
custody of the United States marshal, but
was held on an order of the court in garni
shee proceedings. If the Supreme Court
decides that he was In the custody of the
United States marshal the court will be in
a position to pas upon the constitutionality
of the law and dispose of the case. If not
there Is no case before the court and the
matter will have to be dismissed.
Under n recent act of Congress Solicitor
General Richards will move for the dis
missal of the suits brought against the
States of North Carolina, South Carolina,

amount of certain bonds issued by those
States and held by the United States. The
bonds were issued before the civil war.

COLUMBUS, Ind., Oct. 8. Without doubt
the greatest -night political demonstration
which was ever held in this city was that
of to-night, when Senator Albert J. Pev
eridge spoke for the Republicans. No espe
cial effort had been made, the simple an
nouncement that Mr. Beveridge would
speak being deemed sufficient to arouse the
patriotic spirit of the people. Delegation
after delegation streamed into the city from
the adjacent country during the late hours
of the afternoon, until by the supper hour
the downtown streets and sidewalks were
absolutely Impassable. Elizabethtown, the
home of County Chairman W. E. Springer,
sent up a delegation of over one hundred
Rough Riders, which Included a mounted
band. Edinburg sent a delegation of over
two hundred by the evening trains. Every
little town within a radius of seven miles
had its enthusiastic representatives in the
parade. The parade, which Included the
various marching clubs of this city rein
forced by the country delegations, num
bered by actual count 2,873, exclusive of
bands and drum corps, of which there
were twenty-five. Long before the parade
had started the City Hall, which is the
largest auditorium in the Fourth congres
sional district, was crammed to its utmost
capacity, and an overflow meeting was
hastily arranged. The outside expectant
throng was Informed through a megaphone
that Mr. Reveridge would address them at
the courthouse after his speech at the City
Mr. Beveridge's appearance at the City
Hall was the signal for an outburst of ap
plause which lasted for several minutes.
During the speech he quoted from a letter
he received last Saturday from the Philip
pines. The letter was written by Harry L.
Glichrist, acting assistant surgeon United
States army, with headquarters at Manila.
The extract follows: x
"At present the Insurgents are cutting up
a little; they have taken a new lease of
life since the nomination of the Democratic
candidate, and seem to be quite in evi
dence all over the islands. A few days
after it became known here that Bryan
had received the nomination Aguinaldo
published an open letter in the Manila
Freedom, in which he advised all lovers
of freedom to take heart and renew the
struggle, saying, by so doing, it wouM
greatly aid the deliverer of tho Filipinos
in becoming the next President of the
United States, and then all the troops
would be withdrawn and the Filipinos
would be free. It seems to have had the
desired effect from present appearances.
My Interpreter, a very loyal fellow, has
told me several times that the insurgents
are building a good deal upon the elec
tion of Bryan. The longer I remain here
the more thoroughly convinced I become
as to the utter impossibility of these peo
ple ever being able to govern themselves.
They are now holding several important
positions here in the city and their meth
od of doing business Is simply rank, es
pecially so amongst the judges, whose
decisions are very dishonest, and their
entire work unsatisfactory.
"On Panay island the fighting still con
tinues. They had quite a fight Just out
side of Hollo the other day, in which we
lost some lives. Negro and Cebu Islands
are quiet. Samar and Ieyte are having
some warm times, the Filipinos being full
of fight. We all feel here that the extra
amount of fighting they are now putting
up is for political effect at home. The
other day 1 overheard some soldiers dis
cussing the situation and one of them re
marked: 'If Bryan would come out openly
and say that if he was elected he would
make no changes in the present policy
in regard to the Philippines, the Filipinos
would quit.' That opinion seems to be
unanimous out here."
The courthouse overflow meeting, pend
ing Mr. Beveridge's appearance, was ad
dressed by Anderson Percefleld, of Brown
county, who recently renounced Bryanlsm.
Mr. Percefleld was accorded a most en
thusiastic reception, and delivered a speech
in which he exposed and denounced the
false prophecies of Mr. Bryan, and talked
sound money and expansion. After Mr.
Percefleld's speech W. C. Duncan spoke,
and was received with great applause.
Senator Beveridge's speech at the court
house was not a repetition of his speech at
the City Hall, but It was a most logical and
effective argument in behalf of, Repub
lican principles, and was much enjoyed by
the people who had been able to gain ad
mission to the meeting earlier in the even
ing. NOT SUPPORTED BY FACTS.
Democratic Contention that Former
Gold Democrats) Support Bryan.
Special to the Indianapolis Journal.
KOKOMO, Ind., Oct. 9. The statement
issued by the state Democratic committee
that all the Gold. Democrats of 1806 were
for Bryan this year is not borne out by
facts in this section of the commonwealth.
In this county more Democrats are against
Bryan now than four years ago, and this
time they will vote for McKinley. Two
prominent attorneys of this city John B.
Joyce and Otis C. Pollard are on the stump
for the Republican ticket. Judge C N.
Pollard, a life-long Democrat, presided at
the John P. Irish meeting last week and
denounced Bryanlsm as dangerous and
calamitous in the extreme. They are lead
ers of old-time Democracy, and many con
verts are made at all their meetings, es
pecially among the farmers, who are com
ing over by townships to the Republican
cause. The few silver Republicans who
went over to the enemy's tent four years
ago are back In the Republican fold.
Messrs. Joyce and Pollard are stumping the
county together, holding largo meetings
with vote-getting results.

there were two speakers, R. B. Hanna,

were addresses at two places that all might

ALLEGED PLOT TO DEFRAUD LIFE

Three Men Arrested at Chicago and

MISS DEFENBACH A VICTIM
SHE DIED SUDDENLY AND IIEIl RE
MAINS WERE CREMATED.
Her Life Well Insured and Her Prop
erty Willed to One of the De
fendants, Who Confessed.
CHICAGO, Oct. 8. With insurance on her
life amounting to $12,000. Marie Defenbach,
aged thirty-five, died Aug. 25 in a boarding
house on La Salle avenue, under conditions
which the police believe indicate a plot to
swindle an insurance company and two
insurance societies. If they do not point to
murder. On bench warrants issued by
Judge Gibbons three persons said to be
Implicated in the case Dr. August M.
Unger, Frank II. Smiley, a detective, and
F. Wayland Brown, assistant manager of
the Mooney & Boland detective agency
have been arrested. The last-named re
turned from Virginia to-day and was
charged with complicity In the case. The
three men were later arraigned before
Judge Gibbons and in default of $15,000
ball each were committed to jail.
When Miss Defenbach died there were
three policies on her life, aggregating
$12.000, all of recent date, as follows: New
York Life Insurance Company, $5,000; Ca
nadian Order of Foresters, $5,000; Knights
and Ladies of Honor, $2,000. Several other
insurance companies besides the ones in
which insurance . policies were taken out
were applied to by one or the other of the
defendants for similar policies, the amount
applied for in each case being $10,000.
The alleged conspiracy has been inves
tigated with searching care by a private
detective agency, by the attorneys and de
tectives of the insurance companies and
latterly by the state's attorney himself.
Sunday, at a meeting between State's At
torney Deneen and Asslsant W- M. Mc
Ewen on one side and the attorneys repre
senting the insurance companies and detec
tive agency the case was discussed, and it
was decided to cause the immediate arrest
of the suspects. The detectives believe
that a conspiracy was concocted and that
Miss Defenbach was originally one of the
quartet of alleged conspirators. She had
expected that her death was to be feigned,
and that another body was to play the
passive role of her corpse. Instead of that
real death came to her.
Last April Miss Defenbach applied to the
New York Life Insurance Company for a
ten-thousand-dollar policy. This was re
fused by the company, as was also an ap
plication for an elght-thousand-dollar pol
icy, on the ground that she was not pos
sessor of sufficient property interests to
warrant so much of a risk, although she
was examined and declared to be in perfect
health. In July Miss Defenbach succeeded
in obtaining from tho New York company
a policy of $5,000. and this formed a part of
the estate ehe left. About the middle of
August Miss Defenbach also secured in
surance in the Canadian Order of Foresters
to the amount of $5,000. About the same
time she took out a policy in the Knights
and Ladies of Honor for $2,0u0.
Two weeks later she was dead, leaving a
will which directed that a part of the
policies should be paid to Frank H. Smi
ley, her "affianced husband," and that her
body be cremated. Her death, at a board
ing house on La Salle avenue, was attended
by the most terrible agony. Drs. Leonard
and Schroeder, the latter representing the
Knights and Ladies of Honor, were called.
They retused to issue a certliiacte of
death, but the coroner's Jury later, and
after the body had been embalmed, found a
verdict of death from dysentery. The next
day the body Mas cremated and the ashes
were scattered to the winds.
Without much delay proceedings were
begun to recover the value of the insurance
policies Miss Defenbach had left. Owing
to the unusual circumstances surround
ing her death, the hurried embalming of
the body, followed the next day by cre
mation, payments of the policies were re
fused and immediate steps were taken to
trace the woman's career during the last
few months of her life.
An unusual incident is connected with the
making of Miss Defenbach's will. On Aug.
21 Miss Defenbach called at the office of a
lawyer named Johnson, in the Unity build
ing, and told him she wanted to make her
will. Some days earlier, it is stated. Dr.
Unger had told this lawyer a woman would
call on him for this purpose, and she an
nounced she had come in accordance with
the appointment. She told Mr. Johnson she
wanted to leave her property to Frank 11.
Smiley, her affianced husband, and then
she went away. Two days afterward she
returned and Mr. Johnson had the will
ready. It provided, as she had instructed,
that after her debts were paid her prop
erty was to go to Smiley, but she then
wanted another provision inserted. It was
that after her death her body be cremated.
This somewha't surprised Mr. Johnson, as
he could not understand how a young and
handsome woman could wish her body
burned after death, but he complied with
the request. He was so struck with the
circumstance, however, as the cremation
clause had not been in the original instruc
tions, that he called in witnesses to the
will from adjoining offices as a matter of
protection. Miss Defenbach then signed
and executed the document. Two days
later she was dead.
No Claim for Payment.
NEW YORK, Oct. S.-George W. Hubbell,
attorney for the New York Life Insurance
Company, said to-day that the company
had issued a policy for $5,000 to Marie
Defenbach a short time ago. They had been
notified of the death of Miss Defenbach,
but had not resisted paying the amount
of the policy, as no claim had been made
for the money. When asked whether-it
was usual for the company to Investi
gate all deaths or if this was an excep
tional case Mr. Hubbell replied: "No, under
ordinary circumstances we do not inves
tigate, but in a case like this, where policies
from a number of companies had been is
sued so short a time before death, I sup
pose this would be done as a matter of
safety. However. I am without informa
tion, and am not prepared to discuss the
matter in detail."

Kerens and others at headquarters had a
definitely seated idea that some one in
c.uthorlty over the newsboys had Instructed
them to do all they could to make trouble
tor Republican meetings whenever possible,
and particularly for Governor Roosevelt
while he was in the city. This story was
vigorously denied by those in authority in
the American office, who were greatly dis
turbed when they found to what lengths
their employes had gone in their insults to
the city's guests.
The Record, in reporting the church in
cident, said: "Governor Roosevelt was s:t
upon by a rabble of boys and young men.
who heaped tho most obscene epithets upon
him, cursed him in the presence of women
and children and followed his carriage,
hurling mud and profanity after him.
"Who shot a Spaniard in the back?"
shouted a sixteen-year-old, as Roosevelt,
hat in hand, reached the vestibule of the
"Hero he comes, the !"
"We've got a chunk of Ice for you, you
These were the mildest of the salutations
which shocked the ears of gentle worship
ers as they followed the Governor out of
church. Women and children, horrified and
fearing bloodshed, drew back into the
church. Roosevelt paused for a moment
white with rage. His teeth showed in an

Col. Curtis Guild, Jr., saw what was com
ing. He had Roosevelt by the arm and
whispered: "For God's sake. Theodore,
don't say a word. Don't do anything. Get
in your carriage!"
But Roosevelt was furious. He ha 1
neither cane nor umbrella and for a mo
ment he stood before his insulters the pic
ture of impotent and insulted angeri His
tormentors danced around and away from
him. It was the first time since he came
into the West that respectable women had
been made to hear in his presence the
scurrility of the political camp follower and
scavenger. But Guild grabbed him by the
arm as ho opened the carriage door and
almost shoved the Governor into it.
"Drive to the Annex!" yelled Guild to
the driver. A moment later the vehicle
was dashing down Harrison street with a
dozen jelling, cursing, mud-throwing boya
The Rev. Peter Nordyke, pastor c tho
church, was left standing In the doorway,
whither he had followed his distinguished
guest, appealing vainly for a policeman to
arrest the rioters. Before a bluecoast ar
rived the rabble had dispersed after
Roosevelt's carriage. That was the ugly
finale to what previously had been a model
day of rest and worship for the Republican
vice presidential candidate. Governor
Roosevelt, after he had returned to the
hotel, was not inclined to say much of the
insult. He said he was positive that the at
tack had been instigated by a local Demo
cratic paper. Perry S. Heath, secretary of
the Republican national committee, shared
The Rev. Peter Nordyke said, in discus
sing the affair last night: "I regret that
the Governor wasjnsulted in front of our
church. This was the third time he had
attended worship there and I can say there
is no one in our congregation with a soul
small enough to do it. The boys were
hired, Jt la my opinion, by malicious ar
sons who wished to make it appear that
our congregation had insulted him after he
had attended worship with us. The boys
do not belong In this neighborhood. I trust,
although I heard it said that two of them
live near the church. We feel that Gover
nor Roosevelt. In coming to our church, is
prompted by the purest motives. It shows
not alone that he is h Christian gentleman,
but that ho is loyal to the faith of his
fathers. I shall investigate this cae care
fully, as I feel It was a plot to reflect dis
credit on our congregation."

The Selection of a Trustee
The popular tendency toward the Trust
Company as a trustee is easily found
when comparisons are drawn. Every one
has knowledge of an individual trustee
who has defaulted and robbed those
whom he was appointed to protect. No
such experience ever followed the ap
pointment of a trust company to any
such responsibilities. If any trust be
committed to an individual there Js no
assurance that he will live to execute It.
or that he will keep In such health as
will enable him to give it the proper at
tention. Lnexpected mental derangements
may come to him, and if in health he
will need recreation, or he may have
business of his own that takes him away
from home at a time when the interests
of the trust demand his presence.
The Trust Company never dies; it never
absconds; It Is never away on vacation;
it is never sick; it is always at home,
ftnd its existence is not affected by "war,
pestilence or famine." Above all. it Is al
ways responsible, and has an invaluable
reputation which its managers are ever
zealous to protect and enhance.
THE UNION TRUST COMPANY Offert
its services to all in need of a trustee.
