THE TOPEKA DAILY STATE JOURNAL.
BANKER SOUNDS
NOTE OFALARM,
President Simmons of the Fourtl
National of New York
Delivers an Address Before the
Maryland Association.
HIS TEXT IS GRAFT.
Says Future of the Country Is
Seriously Threatened
By Those Who Bob With the
Air of & Saint.
Annapolis. Md.. Oct. 5. Dishonesty
in high places in the state, the judi
ciary and great financial institutions
and corporations, and palliation of
Such acts by the masses, gravely
threaten the future of the country,
according to views expressed today by
J. Edward Simmons, president of the
Fourth National bank of New York,
in an address before the Maryland
Bankers' association. He pointed to
the lessons taught by the fall of the
ancient Roman republic, the reign of
terror in France, and the disasters
which befell Russian arms in the re
cent conflict in the far east, all of
which he said were due to palliated
dishonesty.
"I hear voices from the east and
voices from the west," he said, "all
boding voices voices from the pulpit
and the divine, voices from the col
lege and the educator, voices from the
bench and the bar, voices from the
press and its sages, the voice of the
president himself, denouncing in ring
ing tones and deploring the universal
spread of selfishness in its meanest
and most exclusive form the form of
dishonesty. They bewail one uni
versal carnival of dishonesty. Alas,
the voices are not unconfirmed."
Deplores Conditions.
He deplored the conditions
have led men to tolerate the
which
terms
"graft." and "grafters." and said he
feared the very use of the Wrds was
an indication of men's tolerance of a
thief and his trade. He called upon
the members of the association to give
their assistance in remedying a. con
dition which makes it possible "for
men who pose as the salt of the earth
and who condemn without reserve
those who steal fifty dollars or forge
a check for a hundred dollars, or ac
cept a bribe, who themselves make
millions by lying, misrepresentation,
by fraud and by bribery, without re
ceiving punishment or even criticism,
while the -man who steals the paltry
sum is sent to jail." He de
the man of stainless private
"in the interest of corporatio:
trusts, of the gas company.
mnced
ife who
;. of the
of the
iilroad company, of the insurance
Company, has recourse to every vil
lainy damned in the decalogue who
does the deed of a highwaymen with
the air of a saint."
The Socialist Movement.
Mr. Simmons said that the workings
and dangers of great corporations and
multimillionaire enterprises have not
been and are not as fully understood
;.s their advantages. He believed that
their dark side has been investigated
and set out as lucidly and forcibly as
their bright side. He ieferred to the
growth of the socialist movement as
shown by the last presidential elec
tions as due largely to the fact that
the masses see large fortunes accumu
lated by dishonest means and when so
accumulated combined to smolhar in
dividual enterprise. He believed, how
ever, that the situation was without
hope, as the very fact that the country
has awakened to the condition and
that fearless and able men are organ
izing and leading a campaign against
dishonesty are grounds for hope that
a far reaching process has already be
gun. Mr. Simmons discussed the tar
iff, scoring severely those who de
bauch the legislator to enact laws
crushing their competitors in business
or to exact tribute from their fellow
citizen under the name of duty.
"I recognize readily," said Mr. Sim
mons, '"that vast blessings which un
ion or consolidation for business pur
poses if properly guarded and honestly
conducted may bring upon the nation.
We must not forget, however, that all
truts are monopolists in tendency and
that almost every industrial consoli
dation that has been formed has had
for its object the curtailment of com
petition; and every thoughtful man
knows that the more you curtail com
petition, the nearer you approach mon
opoly; and when no competition exists,
then monoply prevails.
As to Tariffs.
"Under such circumstances it may
be unjustifiable to make a tariff pro
tect an industry, but I hold that no
tariff is justified that has not for its
sole aim the advantage or the neces
sities of our country in its entirety.
The man who imposes a duty, or
leads another with, or without a bribe
to impose a duty in order to fill his
pockets, is dishonest and all the more
baneful is his dishonesty because he
extracts his plunder, without danger
to himself, from the pockets of those
who can not resist. . He does the deed
of a highwayman with air of a saint
and poses before his fellow citizens
with a self satisfied mien and sur
rounds his head with a self-created
halo."
In conclusion Mr. Simmons said:
"While the situation that confronts
us is undoubtedly serious we can not
meet it by adopting pessimistic views.
We certainly should not exaggerate
the evils that exist to the point of dis
couragement, but we should recognize
their existence and should not under
rate their magnitude, comforting our
selves with the thought that gradual
amelioration must come as it always
has come through persistent and intel
ligent effort. The fact that the coun
try has awakened to the prevailing
conditions and that fearless and able
men are organizing and leading a cam
paign against them are grounds for
hope that a fr reachirg remedial
process has already begun."

PRESIDENT PALMA OF CUBA, WHOSE RE-ELECTION IS NOW
ASSURED.
President Tomas Estrada Palma of Cuba, against whom a determined
campaign has been waged by those natives who declare that he is too friend
ly toward the United States, is now practically certain of re-election in De
cember, inasmuch as returns from all over the island indicate the triumph,
without a single exception, of the I'alma election boards. Mendez Capote,
the leader of the Moderate party, will be the vice presidential nominee.
President Palma was teaching a school in New York state when he was elect
ed to the presidency of the new republic of Cuba, from which he had long
been an exile.

Girl's Loss of Husband.
Chicago. Oct. 5. A jury in Judge
Carey's court today gave Miss May
Mendenwald a verdict for $500, against

lrordes in 1S98 while she was playing

city she said Kevekordes, aided by an
automobile, followed her through the
state and then proposed. Miss Men
denwald said that he was accepted
and August 6, 1903, was. set as the
date for the wedding. She went to
Kvansville. Ind., Kevekordes' home,
on that day. but when Kevekordes
was found Miss Mendenwald said he
declared "it was all off." A few days
later she heard of his marriage to an
other woman.

President McCall Says Life Insurance
Men Only Die.
New York. Oct. 5. President Mc
Call of the New York Life Insurance
company, was asked what action
he would take in regard to the refusal
of the insurance commissioner of Ne
vada to allow it to do business in that
state under present conditions.
"We will fight it to' the death," he re
plied. "By what means?" he was asked.
"By injunction. We can bsrat that
order by proper legal proceedings."
Mr. McCall was asked if he had
heard from the insurance commission
of Colorado whoTuesday was quoted as
saying that if Mr. McCall and Mr.
Perkins did not get out of the New
York Life and President McCurdy out
of the Mutual Life, licenses for those
companies to do business in Colorado
would be refused.
"I have not heard a word from Colo
rado," said he. "But that Nevada chap
senp me his notice in a telegram which
had $6.40 charges for tolls to be col
lected on it."
"Did you pay it?"
"I did not," said President McCall.
"I sent the telegram back to him."
When President McCall was asked" if
he proposed to resign as a result of
the agitation started against him in
several states, he said:
"Life insurance men never resign
they die."
STILL INDIGNANT.
Japanese Do Not Become Reconciled
to Terms of Peace.
Tokio. Oct. 5. In passing the peace
treaty the. privy council has clearly
impressed upon the anti-peace agi
tators the impossibility of a refvVal
to ratify it. The energies of the lat
ter will now likely be concentrated
on an attack upon the cabinet. Pub
lice demonstrations expressing the na
tional indignation against the peace
treaty will, it is believed, cease, but
this outward suppression of feeling
will only create a strong undercurrent
of disaffection, which if allowed to
grow will swell the popular rage. Un
wise resistance and any attempt to
suppress popular opinion may, it is
feared, give rise to acts of violence.
Well informed people, while ap
preciating the wisdom of putting a
stop to the war. are indignant at the
half-measure policy of the govern
ment as exhibited, for instance, in the
partition of the island of Sakhalin.
The public is keenly intent, await
ing an explanation from the govern
ment, but the prjomise to convene a
special session of the diet imme
diately after the conclusion of peace
not having been fulfilled, is growing
impatient.
TAFT HAS A WORD.
Says Mi'. Rowcn Misunderstood the j
President's Remarks.
Washington. Oct. 6. Secretary Taft,
being asked concerning the statement
said to have been made by the presi
dent to Herbert AV. Bowen, late min
ister to Venezuela, in the letter which
Mr. Bowen gave out yesterday, said he
was present at the interview and that
Mr. Bowen wholly misunderstood what
the president in fact said.
"Mr. Bowen," continued the secre
tary', "repeated once or twice that he
would do exactly what he had done
were the same case presented to him
for action and he finally said that he
was glad the whole matter had come
out and was generally known. To
which the presiuent replied: "I do not
agree with you and I am very sorry
that the whole matter has happened."
FOR PURSE OF $50,000
St. Anian. Won Three Year Old Stakes
ct London.
London. Oct. 5. The race for the
Jockey club stakes of $50,000 for three
year olds and upwards, a mile and
threee-quarters, was run at Newmar
ket today. St. Amant won, Potymelus
was second, and Mondamiu was third.
Six horses started. Mondamin led to
the bushes, when St- Amant drew to
the front and won a popular victory
by three-quarters of a length.
M. Branque's crack horse Gouver
nant was specially sent from France to
avenge his defeat in the derbv of 1904
by Mr. Leopold de Rothschild's St.
Amant. but the French horse was not
even placed. The betting was 100 to
7 against St. Amant: 5 to 2 against
Polymelus and 20 to 1 against Mon
damin. A CALL FOR HELP.
Ohio Republican Chairman Appeals to
President Roosevelt.
Washington. Oct. 5. Senator Dick,
chairman of the Ohio Republican ex

with President Roosevelt relative to the
present situation in that state. The
president is interested in the approach
ing Ohio election and told Dick he
would do everything in his power to
insure the success of the Republican
cause there this fall. Senator Dick
is anxious that as many members of
the cabinet as possible may make
speeches in Ohio during the campaign
and it has been agreed tentatively that
Secretaries Taft, Shaw, Wilson and
Bonaparte and Attorney General
Moody will participate in the cam
paign. $250,000 MISSING.
Money of Alamosa Bank Depositors
Went Into Mines.
Alamosa, Colo., Oct. 5. Develop
ments show, that about $250,000 is
missing from the Alamosa Ibank, which
closed Monday. The owners, Herman
Schiffer of New York, Abraham Schif
fer and Isaac Schiffer of Alamosa, are
not here. Assignee G. W. Brickenstein
admits that $70,000 of the depositors'
money went into a doubtful mining
venture at Idaho Springs.
POLICE JOTTINGS.
Things Around Police Station
Are Now Quieting: Down.
How Mr. Michael Sweeney Was
Surprised.
IN WAY OF WORKMEN.
One of Them Hit Sweeney and
Was Arrested.
Judge L'riny Refused to Fine
the Assailant.
Police business has been extremely
slack for several days, and the depart
ment has to get what amusement it
can out of the few plain drunks and
other dinkey little cases which appear
on the docket. Not even a "fowl at
large" case has appeared to break
the monotony.
When police court was called last
evening, there was a stay of proceed
ings. Mike Sweeney, an ancient Hi
bernian, had sought and secured a
warrant for one John Belcher, colored,
charging him with assault. When
court time came Belcher.by the urgent
request of an officer, was all there, to
gether with two of his witnesses, but
Sweeney was not visible to the naked
eye. After a 20 minute wait Mike
wandered in, and looked surprised to
see so many people. In a dazed way
he was sworn and stated that Belcher
had "sthruck him wan" on the breast,
knocking him down and out.
Wouldn't get out of the way.
The defendant and his witnesses
then swore that they were employed
on the construction of the new ToDeka
club house, and while Belcher and a
companion were carrying a 300 pound
stone up two flights of stairs. Sweeney
had blocked their progress by squat
ting on the stairway and refusing to
move. Then, they said. Belcher, who
was "toting" the front end of the rock,
pushed Sweeney out of the way and
went on.
The court discharged the defendant,
but Sweeney did not seem to realize
that the case was closed. He sat on
the witness bench a few moments and
then sank into sweet and restful
slumber. He woke up half an hour
later and asked if Belcher had been
fined a good big "wan."
Some people have a happy faculty of
seeing the sunny side of everything.
Lewis Murray, a negro whitehorse
drinker, was convulsed with joy last
evening when Judge T'rmy fined him
five for beins drunk.
And he laughed.
Murray is an old offender, and firmly
believed that he was going to get 50
days on the stone pile. He shivered
perceptibly when he to took hts stand
before the august court, and shivered
some more when the court told him
that he was a bad one. "Therefore,"
said the court very deliberately, and
the negro seemed on the verge of con
vulsions. "I will fine you $5."
Murray wiggled to his feet and
shrieked. "Ahr, har, har, thanky,
jedge, ar, har har, thanky. Ar, har
har."
The jailer led him back and threw
him in, while he continued to shriek
his self congratulations and tell the
other prisoners of his good fortune.
Judge Urmy should be careful about
surprising whitehorse drinkers in that
manner. It is said that the wood al
cohol they drink affects their hearts,
and some day, when he fools some one
of the unfortunates by handing down
the minimum fine, the sudden death of
the victim will follow.
Gertrude Hollis was picked last eve
for street walking. Thus again, is
the crying need for an aerial trolley
system demonstrated. It is against
the rules for certain females to walk i
the streets by night, and it is an
equal cinch that they cannot fly.
Hence the argument in favor of the
suspended trolley.
MUST PUT MONEY BACK.
Or Life Insurance Companies Can't
Stay in Missouri.
Jefferson City, Mo.. Oct. 5. "John
A. McCall and George W. Perkins and
all others who are guilty of misusing
trust funds of the New York insurance
companies must replace these funds
or they cannot do business in Missouri
while I am insurance superintendent,"
said W. D. Vandiver in discussing the
New York inquiry.
Mr. Vandiver will take the matter up
in a formal way in a few days and will
make his demands, and if they are not
complied with he will revoke the li
cense of the company in accordance
with the statement he made.
Moscow Cniversity Closed.
Moscow, Oct. 5. The rector of the
Moscow university has closed that in
stitution because of a recent mass
meeting held in its precincts at which
a number of the participants were out
side agitators totally unconnected with
the university.

The latest Fall fashions in Baby Clothes, Caps,
and Bonnets are now being shown in our main flor
department.
The new little caps and bonnets are charming.
See if you don't think so when you have put one on
your own baby's head. And there are coats and
dresses, sacques and novelties of many sorts ready
for the time when you have to lay summer clothes
away.
Empire ideas have touched baby things, too.
You will find them in the little coats for tots of two
and three years, made of velvet and bear skin, in
white and colors. Modified and "ehildified," of
course, but still there.
Concerning new frocks for baby, made of white
nainsook and lawm-pdaintiest stuff for both winter
and summer. They are perfection, as far as we
could see. Prices start at 50c and go to $5.00.
Every detail is so simple, so befitting a baby, that
we're sure mothers will enjoy seeing the little tots
wear them. Touches of lace and embroidery trim
some, shirring, and tiny tucks beautify others.
Today's window will convey an idea of the com
pleteness of all these stocks.
JAPAN'S DEBT.
Increased From $6 Per Capita to $25
by the War.
Tokio. Oct. 5. Former Foreign Min
ister Okuma, leader of the Progressive
party, before the associated chambers
of commerce today. referring to the
sudden expansion of Japenese confi
dence, said that when the withdrawal
of troops is completed she will find
herself confronted with a debt of $1,
250,000,000, the interest on which alone,
roughly speaking, will be $75,000,000 or
nearly twice the revenue of the coun
try ten years ago. The per capita rate
of taxation before the war was $2.
Now it is $6. The per capita share in
the national debt before the war was
$6. It is now $25. Count Okuma, how
ever, was not pessimistic. He spoke el
oquently of the necessity of the busi
ness men redoubling their energy in
the development of productive works
of all. kinds and thus securing victor
ies in peace as well as in war.
RAISED $10 BILLS.
Leavenworth Man Tolls What He Saw
Soldiers Do.
Leavenworth, Kan., Oct. 5. Cash
H. Mayze, who has been work at Fred
Heis' stone yard, was arrested on com
plaint of his wife, who followed him
here from St. Joseph, and is now con
fined in the city jail. Mrs. Mayze
claims that her husband abandoned
her and did not support her, and, in
addition, she suspects that he is im
plicated in a counterfeiting scheme.
The two were married at Hutchin
son, and almost immediately after the
wedding. Mayze, according to his wife,
commenced getting into trouble. "He
was a heavy drinker, and she spent
considerable money keeping him out of
the courts. While he was in Hutch
inson he was a guard at the reforma
tory and, in addition, foreman of the
stone-cutting gang. It was this work
in which he engaged upon his arrival
here.
Mayze tells a story of having spent
some time with two discharged soldiers
Monday night, learning how to raise
$10 bills to $100 notes. According to
Mayze. a Scotchman was the prime
mover in this idea, and a younger ex
infantryman asisted him in passing
the money. Mayze says that he did
not pass any money for them, did not
assist in raising it. but that he stood
by and received instructions in their
methods-
DON'T THINK MUCH OF WITTE. H
St. Petersburg Municipality Rejects
Proiosition to Honor Him.
St. Petersburg, Oct. 5. A strong
sentiment against Count Witte devel
oped at a caucus of the St. Petersburg
municipality called to discuss civic ac
tion in recognition of his services at
Portsmouth. Suggestions that a ban
quet be given in his honor and that he
be presented with the freedom of the
city or an address were rejected and a
resolution was adopted declaring that
he is not worthy of any special honor
because his services at Portsmouth
"were only a redeeming sacrifice for
the political mistakes in which he has
acquiesced and which were responsi
ble for the war."
The first act of the ministerial com
mittee, the sessions of which have been
resumed with Count Witte's return is
an important concession on the lan
guage question permitting the com
mercial schools of Warsaw, Riga and
Reval to use Polish or German
as the language of instruction in all
studies except Russian grammar, nis
tory and geography.
