Indiana Democratic Leader Not a Candidate For National Chairman. What will be real news to national Democrats is that Mayor Taggait of Indianapolis is not a candidate for na tional chairman that he was never authorized any one to use his name in that connection; that he does not be lieve he is the man for the place; that he does believe Senator Jones is, and that, further, if he Tagg-art) were on tne r.atiunal committee and J.

Dunns that time he has been m jia -Mexico. lostenlay he was in Kansas City on his way home and last night was the star attraction at the Baltimore. Immediately on his arrival Mr. Taggart was besieged on all sides to Know what truth there was in the report of his candidacy for national chairman. It was the first opportunity to get. at tne tacts. "There is no truth in it." he said, ano men went on as quoted. -Mayor laggart 13 credited with Knowing something polirical in his state. On the question of vice presi dent he said: ' I know Indiana. Demo crats fairly well. The delegation will leave Sunaay, reach here Monday even ing. w e come to form a part of the convention, also to present the claims ot B. Jr bravely for vice president." Continuing, he observed: "The candi date should come from Indiana or New York. Whichever state gets the can didate should give as good a guarantee as possible that he would carry the state. If New York can present a can aiaate w-no can add the electoral vote of that state to the Democratic col umn, then all right; if such a man can not be found, then Indiana simply re marks that the electoral vote of that state could be guaranteed if General Shively is added to their ticket."

At the meeting arrangements were made to invite railroad men everywheie to start similar state organizations.com posed of the six railroad men's unions, for the purpose of promoting their in terests in legislation and otherwise. The resolutions adopted by the con gress declare that representative gov ernment is a failure; lavor legislation through the initiative and referendum and imperative mandate; affirm that corporations are born of economic con ditions; that they owe their existence to society-.that the state which gives them life and nourishes their growth should have the inalienable right to exercise control over them in the interest of ail the people. To this end, the resolution demands a constitutional amendment to make arbitration compulsory; that cor porations and individuals who refuse to arbitrate and the party so refusing, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor; favoring the election of president and United States senators by popular vote. The resolutions further declare that government by injunction is a usurpa tion of constitutional rights, and pledges the delegates to oppose the election of Judges w ho have abused their authority.

The work was commenced this spring, and only a few months have been consumed in bringing about the present state of affairs. WILL EE .AS OUTLINED. Few Changes to Be Made in the Pro posed Route of Orient Road. Kansas City, June 28. Asked today If the route of Kansas City, New Mexico & Orient road had been definitely de termined. President A. E. Stilwell said: "Yes, In a general way, although of course variations may be made at some points, depending on certain contin gencies. A delegation of citizens from Emporia, Kan., called on me today to urge the running of the line through that point and pledging their support and assistance. The route will be sub stantially the one printed some time ago." "What will the road cost?" "That is impossible to say at this time. The estimate is $30,uo0,000, but that is subject to modification in a number of ways. Concessions of about $9,000,000 have been granted by the Mex ican government in Mexican bonds. 'It is not generally known," contin ued Mr. Stilwell, "that the Hawaiian islands are 200 miles south of a straight line drawn across the Pacific ocean from Port Stilwell to Manila. This means that when our road is finished it will be the shortest route by more than 1,000 miles from New York or Chi cago to Hawaii, Manila or Hong Kong." Among the new directors of the road are James McNausht, H. H. Naugbton and Andrew McKinney. Mr. McNaught is general counsel for the Northern Pa cific and vice president of the new Great Northern railroad of Canada. Mr. Melville is a Boston financier and was one of the builders of the Great North ern. Mr. McKinney is a New York banker. HALF MILLION INCREASE. Santa Fe Showing For May Is De cidedly Gratifying.

Cornish, who has been elected vice president of the Chicago & Alton, will not resign as vice president of the Union Pacific and the Oregon Short Line. His election by the Aiton directors is significant of the closer traffic relations which are to hereafter exist between the Alton and the Union Pacific. It is understood the compact be tween these roads is similar, as affecting the Kansas City gateway, to that which has long been in effect between the Chi cago & Northwestern and Union Pacific through Omaha. It does not seem to be settled whether through passenger trains will be run from Chicago to Colorado and the Pacific coast via Kansas City over the Alton and Union Pacthc. but this is considered not an im probable result of the alliance. Close traffic interchange between the two roads at Kansas City has existed for years, but the new compact Is much stronger than the old. CENTRAL BRANCH LANDS. Claims of Objectors to Sale "Will Be Investigated. St. Paul, Minn., June 2S. Judge San born of the United States circuit court appeals had a hearing here on the sale of the Central Branch. Union Pacific, un mortgaged lands in Kansas. The matter came up on a motion to confirm the sale- to which objections were Interposed by various claimants who in sisted that they had a perfect title under deeds from the Central Branch. The court postponed the sale and held that the objectors had no standing in court, not being' parties to the suit. The counsel for the objectors and purchasers agreed to investigate the titles and to consent to the confirmation of the sale of all lands except those to which the claimants had a perfect title by deed.

Now Give Kansans Nothing of the Business Secured. Time For Decisi?e Action Against Missouri Raiders. When the Kansas City, Kan., Insur ance men engaged - in local business caused W. V. Church, superintendent of insurance, to issue his proclamation against overhead writng in Wyandotte county, they, were not aware that this proclamation might work both ways. The subject of overhead writing which is the writing of insurance in Kansas by Missouri agents has caused a con-, stant turmoil in insurance circles in Kansas City, Kan., for several years, and has resisted all efforts in the direcJ tion of peace. If the proclamation of the insurance superintendent is made effective, it is now claimed that the Kansas City local agents will be the principal sufferers. This is due to the fact that Mr. Church held that local agents in Kansas City should accept no business except directly from the as sured. At this season of the year the prin cipal insurance business in the " two Kansas Citys is in short rate policies on grain, stock, and other commodities in transit in yards or in elevators. This class of business is transacted principal ly in the board of trade and the grain exchange and the cattle exchange in Kansas City, Mo. There, at all times during business hours, the insurance man may be found. Heretofore, the insurance broker in handling insurance on property or grain or stock on the Kansas side of the line has returned to Kansas City, Kan., and given the business to the Kansas agent with whom the commission has been divided. This gave the Kansas agent a small portion of the commission and his company the business and the effort which was made by the local agents to enlist the sympathy of Mr. Church was for the purpose of stopping this broker age, and gdving to the local agent ail of the commission. Mr. Church acted promptly upon the request of the local agents, but his ac tion has caused a furore among the in surance men, and the insurance depart ment is being roundly abused by the men who asked for the order. Instead of going to the Kansas side of the line to broker the insurance which he may have to write, the agent simply after being authorized to write insurance at the board of trade or grain exchange, turns the business over to the Kansas City, Mo., agent, and thereby deprives the Kansas agent of the small commis sion which he formerly received on this business. In the millions of dollars of insurance which are daily written in this manner in Kansas City, the Kan san formerly held a small share. Now he holds nothing. The Kansas City, Mo., agents are getting every cent of this business, and Mr. Church should find a way to enforce his order. Instead of benefiting the Kansas City agents, the ruling by Superintendent Church has proven disastrous because his order is ignored. N'ot only la the Kansas City agent deprived of a small share of this commission which he has been obtaining, but the Kansas City fire department will suffer by reason of the reduction in the amount of prem iums written by companies authorized to do business in Kansas and having local agents established in Wyandotte county. The city will also lose its pro portion of taxes. In Kansas City. Mo., there are fifty companies authorized to do business which have no license to do business in Kansa3. The field for the insurance broker is very large. Liberal commis sions, prompt service, and many other favors are at his command from these companies. The Kansas City, Ian., agent must content himself with a small field because the greater part of the business goes to Kansas City. Mo., anyhow, while the Missouri broker and the Missouri companies grow fat on business which is confined largely to risks held on the Kansas side of the line. Superintendent Church is determined to put a stop to these raids of Mis sourians into the Kansas field and he should find a way to teach them a les son they will remember. HORSE SHOW TONIGHT Storm Spoiled Last Evenings Perform ance and Programme Postponed.

Xine of the insurgent leaders, including Generals Pio del Pilar, Concencion, Oarcia and Alvarez, were re leased here today upon taking the oath of allegiance to the government and re nouncing ail lorms or revolution in ine Philippines, together with making formal acknowledgment of American sov ereignty. This oath is much stronger and more binding than the oath which General Otis administered ana was consequently uis tasteful to the Filipinos, who accepted it with bad grace, fully realizing the results of any violation. Senor Buencamlno took the oath Mon day. It Is hoped that the sparing of the nine leaders will influence their men to take advantage of the amnesty, which has thus far been without results other than those of today.
