POLITICAL GOSSIP IV. B. Stubbs Calls Attention to Roosevelt's Speech- Issues on Which He Made Bace for Senate. FOIiFEDERALCOXTKOL Pleased With President's Straight Out Talk. Testing Kansas Sentiment on the Taft Proposition. W. R. Stubbs was in Topeka Friday, and speaking of President Roosevelt's speech in favor of federal charters for railroads, which was the principal "is sue" made by Mr. Stubbs in his race for the senate last winter, and which was the subject of an acrimonious newspaper debate between Mr. Stubbs and Balie P. Waggener, said: "I am of course much pleased to a I, ,. nxocfont furti a n 11 1 Rn AtrOnlY for this plan of federal control of cor porations, as It removes ine cause will cure the evil. "The corporation owned newspap ers, together with Brother Balie Wag gener. can now charge President Roosevelt with havine railroad rabies. being a demagogue, and all the other j offenses credited by them to the pro . gressive class of Republicans during the past year or two. "This is -he most radical position I have ever taken with reference to any legislation, and it is extremely grati fying to me to know that President Roosevelt considers it a sound, safe and effectual remedy for the greatest evil of the day." The following is what President Roosevelt said about the federal char ter plan in his Indianapolis speech on May 30: "There must be vested in the feder al government a full power of super vision and control over the railroads doing interstate business; a power in many respects analogous to and as complete as that the government exer cises over the national banks. It must possess the power to exercise super vision over the future- Issuance of stocks and bonds, either through a na tional incorporation (which I should prefer) or in some similar fashion, such supervision to include the frank publicity of everything which would be investors and the public at large noi-. a .- i I. 1 .-. .

Mr. Stubbs' declaration in favor of the federal charter was made in sev eral open letters to the public during the Balie Waggener controversy. Mr. Stubbs said in part: "The remedy for over and fictitious capitalization as well as the combina tion and the consolidation of corpora tions for the purpose of destroying competition seems plain and clear to my mind, and I am of the unniinliflerl opinion that the Kansas delegation in congress should advocate and if nos- sihle secure the enactment of a federal j sratute providing that every corpora- estates whose heirs were missing or tion engaged in interstate business ! unknown.

The first not and has not been in framing a bill 1 rift ln tne series of strikes and un that is sound, conservative fair and 1 settled" labor conditions which have effective. The indications are that the overshadowed San Francisco for many tremendous influence of the corpora- ! weeks appeared when the strike of tlons in politics and the fear of the i 10,000 iron workers was amicably set politicians of Incurring thpir icu.o- tied. The men went out several weeks ure is the milk of the cocoanut." i Just before President Roosevelt ' made his speech endorsing the position ' taken by Mr. Stubbs. the Kansas state i bankers' association, composed of the I tuuscrvaiive men in the state passed a resolution strongly endorsing the federal charter plan as advocated by Mr. Stubbs. Congressman Calderhead, of the Fifth district, who has a well earned repu tation for standing up for what he thinks is right, regardless of what his cuiiBiiiuenis want him to do, is now said to be hostile to Taft for the Re- puDiican presidential nomination. Of c-ourse ir. jaiaernead does not say that he is fighting Taft. He is non committal on all political matters. But those who claim to have penetrated his armor belt of reserve declare that the Fifth district congressman is far from being a Taft man. It is likely that Calderhead will line up for Fairbanks or Foraker. Calderhead is the political enigma of Kansas. He is a defender of trusts and railroads, an enemy of organized labor, and a "stand patter" on the tariff, and yet he represents a district of the state of Kansas which disagrees with him on all these issues. C. S. Watts, representing the Cleve land Leader, was in Topeka Friday testing the public pulse of Kansas on the Taft proposition. He finds it nor mal, indicating a healthy state of de velopment for the Taft boom. Mr. Watts has visited every state west of Ohio -during the past few weeks, and will now start out on a tour of the eastern states. He expects to visit ev ery state in the Union. The Cleveland Leader is friendly to Taft. Mr. Watts interviewed a number of the leading politicians in the city to day, and ln speaking of the general results of his work, said: "Throughout the entire western and central portions of the Unlu.d States, the sentiment is almost unanimous that the country wants some presidential candidate- satisfactory to Roosevelt. Taft is the man who seems to satisfy the majority of people, and to receive the bulk of the endorsement of the friends of Roosevelt. "In Illinois there is a good deal of talk about giving Cannon the compli mentary votes of the state, but the , real question at issue is who will be second choice. An effort Is being made to deliver the state to Fairbanks, but I do not believe it can succeed. 5 Kansas is the banner Taft state. I believe. I did not hear a suggestion of opposition to the secretary in Kan sas. There are politicians there, of course, who are merely 'for' him and not "fur him, but they all have their ears to the ground and are not making any mistake about the positions they are taking publicly. From the stand point of the friends of Taft, the Kan sas situation is particularly pleasing because a large part of the sentiment there is primarily Taft sentiment, rath er than Roosevelt sentiment that em braces Taft incidentally. "Vice President Fairbanks' lieuten ants are at work in Oklahoma, Califor nia, Washington, Utah and Colorado, in particular, but it is difficult to see how they will make any material pro gress in the face of the overwhelming administration sentiment which is not readily reconciled with support of the Indiana man. California may be con trolled by the Southern Pacific railroad, which means E. H. Harriman, and it is the only one of the states mentioned where it seems possible for the reac tionary or ultra-conservative forces to capture the delegation for Fairbanks. In Utah the radical anti-Mormon ele ment is planning to take a contesting delegation to the national convention, hut it is conceded that the regular del egation will be with the administration and for Taft. Colorado may prove to be fighting ground, and it is possible that the influences that made Simon I Guggenheim United States senator may dominate the selection of national dele- . f "oolf no means certain ceenheim wants to sig nalize his entrance into public life by antagonizing an administration that is so popular with the rank and file of the people of all parties." TO OUST CHIEF DINAN. San Francisco Grand Jury Will Hold it Special Session. San Francisco, Cal., June 1. A spe- cial session or tne grand jury win oe held this afternoon at which Chief of Police Jeremiah Dinan will be upon the carpet. He has admitted that he has been investigating veniremen in the interests of Mayor Schmitz, now on trial for extortion, and this will form the basis of an accusation against the chief. The grand jury will, it is said, pre fer formal charges against Dinan for thus using his office to protect men in the prosecution of whom he is sup I posed to assist and will ask that he be I removed from office. It does not lie i within the power of the grand jury to oust the chief, but it can file charges j and place evidence in the hands of the police commission or the courts which may compel action L Vv,- ' , T, ijuiy ' . l . . . - - i - - - - - ----- -- - was made in open open court yesterday by District Attorney Langdor FIND $500,000 GRAFT.

Large Audience Greets Them at . the Auditorium. . :'. ' IIEKO ON PLATFORM He Summarily Disposes of an Offensive Canine. Bev. W. F. Anderson Delivers Address to the Class. . Graduating exercises of the June class of 1907 of the Topeka high school were held last night in the au ditorium. This class numbered seventy-five, and .as is usually the case the girls outnumbered the boys, there being forty-three girls in the class and thirtv-two bovs. And to a vonnir Hri Miss Margaret Welcome went the ex- -""6'. "6" nouor oi ransiiis nrsi in mis large class. .Dividing the hon ors of second rank were Miss Florence Ruth White. Miss Alice Edna Skinner and Karl V. Davidson. An audience of -unusual size, com prising the relatives and friends of the Bid.uudi.es, was present at tne exercises to attest by their presence and with applause whenever the opportunity presented Itself their appreciation of the efforts of- the graduates in the ac complishment of four years of rather arduous study. And an- extremely pleasing picture was presented to this audience by the graduates when they marched through , ui me Dunaing ana toojc sears on tne stage. To music on the pipe organ, at which W. F. Roehr pre sided, they marched in single file from tne northwest and southwest corners of the auditorium and down the cen- ter aisle to the front of the stage where they passed under a large arch of flowers which had been erected there. . Then they separated to either side of the stage and took seats on the platform. Preceding the graduates in this march were thirty of the sub-senior girls, fifteen on a side, and each side carrying a long daisy chain which was emblematic of the colors of the graduating class, green and white. These sub-seniors stretched their daisy chain from one end of the center aisle to the other and the graduates march ed down through this sort of a living coloneade. All of the girl graduates were gown ed in dresses of the purest white, ev ery one of which was a creation by It self, and each of the girls carried a cluster of American Beauty roses in her left arm. All of the boys were dressed in suits of black and Wore sprigs of alfalfa in their buttonholes. As soon as the graduates reached the center aisle in their march to the stage they were greeted with hearty ap plause from the audience and this con tinued until they reached the stage and had taken their seats. L. D. Whittemore, city superintend ent of schools, presided at the exer cises which were opened with an in vocation by Rev. Frank X. Lvnch, pastor of the First Methodist Episco pal church. While Mr. Lynch was of fering up a fervent prayer, a jet black dog. a half grown and ungainly pup. bobbed up on the front of the stage from apparently nowhere. He was unmuzzled and was of an inquisitive nature, for he went from one end of the stage to the other, nosed in all corners and tried to get a sympathetic pat from many of the graduates on the front row but without avail.- As soon as Dr. Lynch had concluded his pray er one of the boy graduates collared the pup and carried him off the stage. He was vigorously applauded for his efforts. To those who believe in sighs this unexpected coming, of the black dog was looked upon as a happy augury for the graduates. "Tis said that when a strange black animal crosses .one's path at the outset of a journey, that journey is bound to be a success. And that the members of the graduating class feel that their finish of school work is but the beginning of a lone: and serious journey is evidenced by their motto which ts ".Not finished; but just begun." There was another selection on the pipe organ by Mr. Roehr which was followed by Mr. Harry C. Fribble with a tenor solo. This was followed with an address to the graduates by the Rev. William F. Anderson, D. D., cor responding secretary of the Board of Education of the Methodist Episcopal church. Dr. Anderson took for his subject "Life A Conquest." He re ceived $50 and considerable applause for his effort and announced that he would charge nothing extra for a dis sertation he gave on the . culture of roses. At the conclusion of the address Mr. Pribble. sang another solo and then the exercises were brought to a close with the presentation of the much cov eted diplomas to the graduates. Rev. F. E. Mallory, president of the board of education, performed this service in a most happy fashion. Following are the names of the graduates: Grace Knight Anderson, Mary Em ma Anderson.

Since Chicago Changed From Cable Cars to Trolley. Chicago, June 1. A startling in crease in the number of street Car ac cidents since the trolleyizing of the cable traction lines is shown in a re port made by Hugo Grosser, city statistician. Mr. Grosser attributes the increase to the greater speed of the cars since the abandonment of the old cable system. . : The police regulation of street traffic, instituted recently by Chief Shippy, has caused a "perceptible re duction in certain classes of accidents, although the. - experiment has been given a trial of only a few -weeks. During the first three - months of t&ls year 339 accidents were caused by street cars, compared with 234 accidents- during the corresponding period last year. The figures repre sent only accidents to persons jump ing on or off cars or who were in jured through collisions between cars and wagons. - -That the conditions . are growing worse continually is indicated by Mr. Grosser's figures for April and May. There were 22 3 "accictebS oft' street cars reported by the potfee; in: April, which is a record in any preceding month. The full stMistttfJ -'"for May have not been compiled, but Mr. Grosser asserts they jviU ,show a pro portionate Increase. HAYWOOD IS ILL Defendant in the Governor Steunenberg Murder Trial Suffers a Nervous Breakdown in His Cell at Boise. TWO DOCTORS CALLED. For Some Days Past He Has Complained of Headaches. His Cries Could Be Heard in Jail Yard Today. Boise, Idaho, June 1. William D. Haywood, the defendant now on trial charged with the murder of former Governor Steunenberg, was taken seriously ill in his cell at the county jail early this morning. Two doctors were called and were with him for several hours. It Is believed that the prisoner is suffering a nervous break down. For some days he has complained of headaches and the guards at the jail say he has shown signs of much restlessness. It has been plain, they say, that the strain of "jury , getting j has been very hard. About 1, o'clock i this morning the pains in the - head I became acute. The physicians: were called in at once and administered opiates. Until these took effect, how ever, Haywood was in great agony and at times his cries could be heard in the jail yard. At 8 o'clock this morning Haywood was resting easy. The physicians will report to Judge Wood and it Is possible no court will be held today. The morning session of the trial was abandoned on account of the Illness of the prisoner. The doctors attending Haywood and his counsel, both stated that the Illness was not serious and they believed he would be able to be in court at 1:30 o'clock this afternoon, to which hour a recess was taken. Haywood suffered severely during the night and at 5 o'clock this morning the county physician was summoned. He called another doctor into consultation and finally opiates were administered to the prisoner. He had not recovered from the effects of the morphine when the hour set for the morning session arrived. The news of Haywood's illness spread quickly through the city and there were but few persons in the court room when the hour for convening arrived. Judge Wood made the announcement of Haywood's illness. He : said the county physician suggested that the prisoner might be able to. attend the trial during the afternoon. ; ,. Attorney Richardson - then j made a statement as "to the nature of - the at tack Haywood had suffered. He said he. was sure it was nothing serious. LThe administration of the opiates nec essary to relieve the Intense pain, ne declared; had left Hayjvood in a weak ened condition arid ft was this -which made 4t impossible -foc-the prisoner to be in court this morning. PACKERS BUYi DIRECT. Armours Purchase 320 Cows from the Cattle Raisers. : Omaha, Neb.. June 1. The fight be tween the packers and the live stock commission men over the purchase of "she stuff" subject to postmortem ex amination, took a new turn today when Armour & Co., purchased 320 cows direct from the cattle raisers, subject to the new rule of the packers governing this class of live stock. Commission men at all yards are ad vising shippers and raisers not to ship stock until the new order Is rescinded. This is the first break in the cattle growers' line. Armour's manager said the "she-stuff" was purchased at "nor mal figures" but refused to state the actual price. ' Commission dealers on the live stock exchange are wrought up over the di rect purchase by the packers from the snippers niveau ui iumS m RENTS ARE TOO HIGH. Cost of Living Held Responsible for Conditions in Frisco. . San Francisco, June 1. That rents and the cost of living are too high and are primarily the cause Of the L high wages demanded here and that the percentage contract system was largely responsible for the demoral ized conditions in the building trades, were the conclusions arrived at at a meeting of a committee appointed by the builders' exchange and a commit tee from the realty board. The two committees had been ap pointed to consider ways and means for bringing about a restoration of normal conditions in the building trades in this city. The committee from the builders' exchange, headed by James A. Wilson, submitted! a table showing the scale of wages .paid in the 35 leading cities in the United States. In nearly all trades It was- found that the scale paid In ' San Francisco 'was from 2Vs'to 15 cents an hour higher than that' paid in Seattle, where was paid the next highest scale. SHE HAD A TEMPER One of Howard Gould's Against His Wife. Charges New York. June 1. Two of the counter charges In Howard Gould's reply to his wife's suit for separation have been' announced on the authority, it is stated, of Mr. Gould. One is that she is inordinately extravagant. The other is that Mrs. Gould's temper was a source of constant annoyance to Mr. Gould and many times folaced him in embarrassing . positions with his friends, besides being a - barrier to their domestic happiness. Mr. Gould also says that his wife's display of , jewels ln public, was a source of annoyance to him. THE SCN SHINES TODAY. The Mercury Also ' Advances Several Notches. - There has been just enough pre cipitation during the past 24 hours to escape the trace record and-entitle it to measurement ln the government gauge which recorded .01 of an inch. This fell in the form of a drizzle dur ing the early hours of last night, and discouraged the attendance at tne street fair ln North Topeka. The sun came out bright today. The temperature has been steadily rising since early morning and there Is nothing in the forecast for Sunday to indicate anything but the finest kind of weather. The wind has been blow ing from the north all day at the rate of 20 miles an hour. "Fair today and Sunday with a rising temperature in the western portion of the state" is the government forecast for the next 4 hours. - The temDeratures for today were: 7 o'clock 54111 o'clock .....64 8 o'clock . .' 57 12 o'clock 66 9 o'clock .....60 1 o'clock .....68 10 o'clock 62 2 o'clock 69 FINED $1,623,900 Waters-Pierce Oil Company Also Ordered Out of Texas.

Much mystery attaches to the suspension of the Chi cago Chronicle. There have been con ferences and various rumors about its successor, these narrowing down to W. R. Hearst and Joseph Pulitzer. Hearst is especially anxious to secure the Chronicle plant and Associated Press franchise, but it is understood that John R. Walsh refuses to sell to Hearst and prefers to throw away an asset worth at least $200,000. Hearst's representa tive has announced that all negotiations were off so far as his chief was con cerned. , John R. Walsh flatly declined to an swer any questions which would clear the situation. Meanwhile the employes are rapidly being absorbed by other Chicago papers. It is believed, however, that Joseph Pulitzer will break in to the Chicago field, the opportunity . being especially good at this time. CLOSE THE SALOONS. Order of Attorney General to the Leavenworth Co. Attorney. Leavenworth, Kan.. June 1. Attor-. ney General Fred Jackson arrived here today from Topeka and Issued an or der to the county attorney directing that all saloons be closed at once. He supplemented this with the declaration that unless his order is respected forthwith he will take steps imme diately to have It enforced. Many saloons have - been operating here despite ouster proceedings and the appointment by the state supreme court of receivers for property owned by foreign brewing companies. TARIFF REDUCED. On Many Articles of Trade Between United States and Germany. Washington, June 1. The president today issued a proclamation announc ing the conclusion of a commercial ar rangement between the United Stares and Germany under the third section cf the Dingley act. The proclamation is brief, simply announcing the list of ar ticles upon which the United States grants reduced duties to Germany and the undertaking of the German govern ment to make reciprocity concessions. A letter from Secretary Cortelyou da ted April 9 is made public in which the secretary said that the negotiations of the proposed commercial agreement would promote friendly relations and would otherwise be of benefit to this country. The state department also has maae public an analytical statement of the points of the new arrangement from which it appears that about 40 articles of American production, embracing most of the articles of trade during the past year are to be subject to the minimum tariff rates upon admission to Germany. Regret Is expressed that it has not been possible owing to the attitude of the German government to secure the minimum tariff rates for ail American products and it Is . said that this concession can only be secured by substantial tariff concessions by the United States in the shape of a recip rocity treaty subject to the approval of congress. 1 ; IS NOT HIS TURN.

Spring and Summer Goods Ac cumulate in Market Owing to the Unseasonable Weather Conditions. AT FULL CAPACITY. Manufacturing Plants Show No Curtailment of Output. Railway and Structural Orders Continue Urgent. New York, June 1. R. G. Dun and Company's Weekly Review of trade says: Seasonable merchandise goes Into distribution slowly which causes ac cumulation of spring and summer dry goods and millinery In the hands of dealers and retards collections, while making operations for fall and winter much more conservative. Manufac turing plants are producing at full ca pacity in most industries, orders ex ceeding output far- into - the future.. More New England cotton mill -employees have received advanced wages, making the change -affect about 86, 000 persons. w Another evidence of progress in cot ton shipping was the Increase in quar terly dividends at Fair River to 2.2 per cent, against 1.32 last year and 2.14 per cent in 1902. the most nrosDerous of recent years. .Railway and structural orders are the most urgent in demand for pro ducts of steel, and as yet there is little evidence of curtailed plans because of unfavorable reports of the difficulty experienced in raising funds for con struction.' Bradstreet's. Bradstreet's says: Unseasonable cold or wet weather. with frosts throughout the north half of the country, has again been a bar rier to trade except in a few sections. and the coldest May in thirty-five years closes with large stocks of goods undisposed of by retailers. There is still general complaint that reorder business from Jobbers and manufac turers, especially in all kinds of wear ing apparel, has been smaller than ex pected and there is more manifest this week a disposition to await develop ments before embarking heavily for the future, though the volume of busi ness booked compares well with pre ceding years.
