Decides It Isn't Wronjr to Deliver Paid Lectures on Sunday. Next Sunday Governor Hoch will go to Greeley and Ft. Collins, both in Col orado, and deliver Chautauqua lectures. or some time Governor Hoch was in doubt about the propriety of delivering lectures for pay on the Sabbath day, but he had a talk with Governor Cum minga of Iowa a few davs ago when Cummings was on his way to Salina to deliver a Sunday Chautauqua speech, and Cummings assured Governor Hoch that it was the proper thing. "In most towns," said Governor Hoch, "the churches all arrange to dismiss their services, and unite in a big meet ing at the Chautauqua grounds. It is really a very appropriate Sunday ser vice. I asked Governor Cummings what he was going to preach about, and he said he hadn't done much preaching in his life, but thought he might be able to deliver a sermon of ' some sort." "What will be your text in Colorado?" was asked. ' . . "Oh, the text is of small importance," replied Governor Hoch. "As Sam Jones used to say, the less text the better. 1 have a number of things to talk about in my Sunday address." Governor Hoch left today for Iowa where he will deliver one address Wed nesday night at Montezuma. He then comes back to Kansas, and on Satur day, leaves for Colorado. Greeley and Ft. Collins are hi9 only Colorado dates, and both are on Sunday, one in the afternoon, and one in the evening. ,T. W.. nSllEB COSIES .HOME. Topeka Xcfiro Will Be Purchasing Ajrent for Qulndaro University.. J.' "W. Fisher; who' has been acting as commissioner'' in charge":oT the' ne gro extflbft for western Btatevftt ' the Jamestown exposition, has resigned his position with the exposition to be come bookkeeper and purchasing agent for the Western university at Quindaro. He will work during tne present summer as fleM agent for the school, soliciting new students. Mr. Fisher was also offered a posi tion as clerk in the office of the board of control, but preferred to take up ths work at Quindaro among his orwn people. Mr. Fisher is a South Caro lina negro, well educated and sensi ble, who was driven out of South Car olina because he was appointed post master by President Roosevelt and the lily-whites wouldn't stand for It. He came to Kansas, and became one of the most effective workers for the Re publican party during the Hoch cam paign. He is a spellbinder or aDiivty, nd worked hard for- tne party through the campaigns of 1904 and 1906. Fisher never secured tne re ward which had been promised him for these services, his best appoint ment being that of messenger in Gov ernor Hoch's office, which place he filled until selected for the Jamestown exposition work. He made a success of his work at Jamestown, and the Jamestown people objected seriously to having him resign at this time. KELLKIi BRINGS A SUIT. Policeman Claims He Was Libeled by II. A. Dusenberry. H. A. Dusenberry. a former police man, was arrested this afternoon on a warrant charging him with criminal libel. He was admitted to bail on this charge hy Judge Dana of the dis trict court ;:i tha sum of $250. His rial on ti e eharce will occur at the September term of the district court. George L. Keller, a policeman, and a brother-in-law of the chief of police. is the complaining witness against Dusenberry. Keller alleses he was criminally libeled by Dusenberry in the general charse which Dusenberry made to the city- officials, after he had been suspended, that there was mai- dmlnistration in the artairs or tne po 1 w H n i rt T-t m pnt In these charges Dusenberry stated that Keller "stole" some nxtures rrom Joint which was raided by the ponce. Joseph Reed, who was retained by Keller as an attorney, will assist the county attorney's forces in the prose cution of the charge against Dusen berry. . When this case against Dusenberry comes to trial, there will be much linen of a soiled character washed out con-" cerning the workings of the police force. Perhaps by that time, or long before, there will have been a reor ganization of the poltaeforce. WANTS THE COAL RATE FIXED. Atchison Is Not Satisfied With the Present Conditions. - William Kiff of Atchison, member of the legislature, and exsheriff of Atchison county, is In Topeka today. He came over to see the railroad com missioners about fixing u? the Atchl son coal rate situation. Atchison has been aBkinc the board of commissioners to fix up some more favorable rates for its new coal- mine, and some private dickering, with the railroads have also been progressing. It is expected that Atchison will eventually get all that it wants in the rr mil roar! rates, because Balle Waggener lives there, and knows how ta jjx. things, fnr his town. OPPOSESjTAFT. Senator ForakerWiites a Letter to State Committee In Effort to Stop Endorsement of the War Secretary. THE PARTY IS DIVIDED He Says, on the Matter of Re vising the Tariff. Taft's Candidacy .Would Serve to Widen the Breach. Cincinnati, July SO. That It is Im possible for him under present condi tions to favor the candidacy of Secre tary of War Taft is the statement of United States Senator Foraker in a letter given out for publication. The letter is addressed to C. B. McCoy of Coshocton, a member of the Repub lican state committee, and is intended as the expression of the senator's views to be presented when the com mittee meets at Columbus. The in terview of Governor Harris in which he favors the endorsement of Foraker for senator and Taft for president and encourages the suggestion of his own name for another term as governor and various recent publications are taken as the text for the letter which is as follows: "I learn from the newspapers and otherwise that a resolution is likely to be offered at the next meeting of the central committee to be held in Co lumbus, endorsing Secretary Taft as Ohio's candidate for the presidency and I have seen it stated that a reso lution is likely also to be offered en dorsing me as a candidate to be my own successor in the senate of the United States and In today's papers is published what purports to be an au thorized interview with Governor Harris favoring this proposed action in endorsing Secretary Taft and ex pressing friendship and good will for myself with respect to a continuation of my, public service but disclaiming a desire to have himself endorsed as his own successor in the governor's office. "In this same interview he an nounces, as he has heretofore an nounced, that he is in favor of re vision of the tariff. 'Inasmuch as you are a member of the state central committee I take the liberty of addressing you and through you the whole committee and all the Republican voters of Ohio, upon the question so brought to our attention. Belongs to the Voters. "On a number of occasions hereto fore I have stated that, so far us I have been individually- concerned, as a citizen of Ohio and a member of the Republican party, I did not think this question shoufd be determined except enly in accordance -with the expressed wish cf the-' Republican voters of Ohio, and that in view of the contro versies that have arisen the Repub lican voters of Ohio" should be given an opportunity to be heard before any action is taken by any' committee or anybody not ch-osen "by the people to represent them In ffcgard to this mat ter., .... . p-. - - . "In view' oit "whatT Grovcrnbr Harris has seen fit: to -say I -trust it is not out of place for me to call attention1 'to my former expressions pf this view, and to report that I do not think the state central committee has any authority to pass on any such subject and I do not think it would promote party har mony for it to undertake to- anticipate the Republican voters of the state by speaking in advance of action by them. -. "1 do not think anybody as Gover nor Harris well says would regard such action a binding. I am sure I wouid not and I do not think it could in any way promote party good in our state or advance the cause of Repub licanism either in Ohio or elsewhere. "In addition to these considerations I think it is premature and bad policy to undertake in this way to inject the presidential question - and national politics into Ohio politics at a time when we are concerned with our mu nicipal elections with respect to which it should be the desire of every Re publican to subordinate everything that might stand in the way of united, harmonious and successful Republi can effort. "When we are through with the elections of this year we can take up in an orderly way and without injury to any interest as the next business to be transacted the settlement of our presidential preferences. Should Heed Warnings. . "I shall at that time as I have here tofore announced request the state central committee to order in accor dance with the spirit of the declara tion of the platform adopted by the convention that assembled at Dayton last year, that delegates for the next convention shall be selected in all the counties at primaries to be duly held under the law as it now stands or such law as may be then in force, if there should be in the meanwhile any change in the statutes of Ohio appli cable thereto. In this way we free ourselves entirely from the oft re peated charges that have been made with too much ground for them that the action of our state convention in recent years has not been governed by the voters who are supposed to be represented by the delegates but by committees, bosses and small coteries with selfish interests in view. We have had admonition and warning that the people are justly displeased with such practices. We should not stubbornly disregard these warnings. , "I learn also from the newspapers and otherwise that it Is claimed, as a reason for . the proposed action, that Secretary Taft is the only candidate Have your Shirts made No Tear, No Swear No Worry, No Hurry -Coat Shirts cuffs attached, cost no more than ready made shirt. . $1.50 to $3.00 Capital Shirt Factory 7th and Jackson Ohio has for the presidency and that on such account -from sentiments of state pride we should unite In his sup port, and that for this reason the committee should take the action at this time so that the whole country may De advised what Ohio intends to do next year. "I see it stated almost every day in the newspapers as a. reason for the claim that Ohio has only one candi date for the: presidency, that I have not at any time announced my can didacy for that off iee. It is true that I have never made any such announc ment. A candidate for the presidency must assume, first the great and se rious responsibility of leading his party in the national campaign and if successful as we hope and. expect to be, he must assume the grave and se rious responsibility of administering the executive offices. These respon sibilities are so grave, and so serious that any man might well feel highly complimented and greatly honored to have his fellow citizens name him in such a connection but at the same time they are so grave and so serious that any ordinary man might well hesitate to- proclaim- himself qualified for such responsibilities, or prefer at least to wait until Invited by his party associates to undertake such duties. Such a position is at least more in keeping with the high dignity of the office. Besides, it gives his party as sociates an opportunity to declare their deliberate, unbiased and unem barrassed judgment, which he should be willing to both wait for and abide. Republicans Divided. "It is because I. entertain opinions of this kind that I have not made any announcement of my candidacy for any office and, in view of what may be inferred from these expressions, I do not deem it necessary I should but this is not the matter to be settled by sentiments of state pride, commend able as they are. If there were not any differences of opinion among Re publicans state pride would properly have great weight, but today there is a wide difference among Republicans on a question of the most vital char acter. "I do not refer to the regulation of rail roads and trusts and corporations engag ed in interstate commerce and large ag gregations of capital, for on that point there Is no substantial difference of opin ion anion? Republicans except as to the methods that should be resorted to for such regulation. I believe in such regula tion and was one of the first advocates of it. but I have always advocated meth ods that are consistent with the constitu tion and the spirit of our institutions. In this connection I am happy to be able to point to the fact that I helped as one of a sub-committee of three to frame and put Into Its present form the Elkins law, which is now universally conceded to be the most efficient and expeditious statute that has ever been enacted on this sub ject; worth, measured by practical re sults, more than all other such statutes combined. "The question I refer to is not, there fore, regulation of trusts, railroads and interstate commerce, about which, as I have said, we are all united, but the tar iff 'question. "Kvery Republican has a right to es pouse any view he may entertain, and in asmuch as Gov. Harris represents that (such is his view I do not wonder that he prefers Secretary Taft as his candidate for the presidency, for on a number of oc casions Mr. Taft has taken pains to an nounce that he is in favor of immediate revision of our tariff. I observe also that most of the leading supporters of Secre tary Taft in our state entertain similar views, according to the expressions I have seen" attributed to them in the news papers, notably among them ex-Gov. Her rick and the Hon. Theodore E. Burton. "When, therefore, we are asked to com mit ourselves to the candidacy of Secre tary Taft, we must do it with the fact in mind that he entertains the views he has expressed on this subject and that if we make him our candidate the campaign of a necessity. .must be a campaign for a re vision downward' of the tariff schedules under which the country has been brought not only to unprecedented, but to a uni versal prosperity. There may be some duties too high and there may be some too low. and there may come a time, and will, no doubt, when there ought to be some changes made, but in view of the results we are enjoying, I do not think we should enter upon any such work at this time, and I do not believe that we should discredit what the Republican par ty has done for this country under the policies represented by the Dingley tariff law by making our campaign of next year an attack upon that statute, especially not until we have some specification as to what duties are to be changed, with the I reasons that are to be offered in support of such changes. Time to Talk It Over. "If we postpone the matter of settline our preference as to -a candidate until we can go before the people and discuss this question, as we will have an opportunity to do If we select our delegates to the next convention at tlie tirimaries our re spective views can be presented and the people can Judge between us and thus act intelligently. I think this much is due to the farmers and the wasre-workers. as well as to the manufacturers and other business men or our state, who will neces sarily be immediately and seriously af fected by any kind of tariff revision. "If we can be given time to discuss this subject, as I propose, I may change my views about it, but without further ad vices it is impossible for me, notwith standing the high character and great ability and the distinguished sen-ices of Secretary Taft to favor his candidacy. "Inasmuch as the time is short and this is designed for the public as well as for yourself, and the committee, I take the liberty of giving a copy of it to the pub lic press, at the same time I put it in the mail. Yours, etc.. "J- B. FORAKER." U. S. GRANT III TO WED. Ills Engagement to Secretary Root's Daughter la Announced. Washington, July 30.

Two Jurors Declare They Be ttered Haywood Was Guilty. Voted for Acquittal to Put an End to Trial. Boise, Idaho, July SO. Charles H. Moyer, president of the Wet - Fed eration of Miners and co-defendant with William D. Haywood, acquitted of the murder of former Governor Steunenberg, has been ordered re leased on $25,000 bail by Judge Wood, who presided at the Haywood trial. The attorneys for the federation ex pected to have the bond ready for fil ing last night but the arrangement had not been w-holly completed at a late hour and Moyer resigned himself to another night in jail. He will prob ably leave within twenty-four hours for his home in Denver. No application for bail was made in the case -of Geo. A. Pettibone, the third of the alleged conspirators, but a motion was made for a speedy trial and his case was ordered set down for Tuesday, October 1st. Counsel inti mated that they might apply for bond for Pettibone later, but it is not be lieved that the state's attorney will consent. It has been generally claimed that the state has more In criminating evidence against Petti bone than any of the others, while it has been generally conceded that the case against Moyer is the weakest of the three. The defense in the Hay wood case admitted that there were a number of things for Mr. Pettibone to explain as - to his association with Harry Orchard and the sending of money to him, but they said it would be time enough to deal with these matters when Pettibone himself was placed on trial. Haywood continues to receive many congratulatory telegrams from all sections of the country. They come from individuals, from local unions of the Western Federation, from all classes of labor unions and from vari ous socialist organizations and lead ers. Aside from the personal congratu lations or the senders the messages have nearly all expressed the senti ment that "labor has triumphed over the oppressive measures of capital." Haywood Receives Many Callers. Haywood spent the day at the cot tage occupied by his family and re ceived many callers. He expects to leave for Denver on Thursday. Strenuous efforts were made to secure the consent of the state's attorneys to the release of Pettibone but without avail. Moyer and Pettibone were both brought into court. The latter's wife was present and broke down when the order was made releasing Moyer and holding her husband. It is -said that Pettibone may be taken - back to the Canyon county Jail at Caldwell until the -time tor his trial arrives. The prisoners were brought to Boise six months ago on a change of venue from Canyon to Ada county. Attorney Darrow of Chicago made the formal application for Moyer's re lease and no word of objection was interposed by Senator Borah, repre senting the state. When It came to fixing the amount Senator Borah named $25,000. "That is reasonable and suits us," said Mr. Darrow. Judge Wood said he would person ally approve the bond and would make it continuing so Moyer could re main at his home in Colorado until wanted. As to Pettibone Mr. Darrow urged that the earliest possible date be fixed for his trial. The next term of court begins September 4, and Judge Wood said he would like to clear the calen dar as far us possible before going in to an extended trial. October 1 was then set as a date agreeable to all concerned. Bond for Moyer Is to be given In a unique way, suggested by Attorney Peter Breen of Butte, who has been associated with the defense. The Butte local of the Western Federation of Miners is the richest in the organ ization and Mr. Breen said carries a deposit of from $100,000 to $140,000 constantly . in the bank. Arrange ments were made by wire by Mr. Breen to have the Butte union make $25,000 subject to draft by the First National bank of Boise. Some officer of the Boise bank -will sign the bail bond as surety. A telegram to Mr. Breen said the arrangements at Butte had been conipleted. Personnl Ball Offered. "Wo were offered personal bond In several times the amount desired here in Boise," said Mr. Breen, "but we preferred not to Impose on any of our friends to that extent when the Butte union has such a large surplus and was anxious for the honor of showing its allegiance and confidence in the president of the federation." Discussion of the verdict in the Haywood case Is widespread, the con sensus of opinion being that the jury had done its duty as it saw it and should not be criticised. Editorial eomment of the local paper is to. this effect, the Daily. Statesman saying: "The Statesman In common with the great mass of the people regrets that the trial of William D. Haywood for the murder of former Governor Frank Steunenberg resulted as it did. The verdict came as a great surprise, VICTOREX GELATINE The most delicious and dainty dessert.

"But the case has been decided by an Idaho Jury under the facts as they found them and the law as laid down by the court and it is the duty of all, as In all cases fairly and -fully sub mitted to our constituted tribunals of justice to accept the result in that spirit of loyalty to our courts which is a necessary attitude of mind on the part of citizens of the republic if our rights are to be protected and peace and order and good will are to reign." The Evening Capital-News says: "There was bound to be kern rtlspn- polhtmeht' whatever the verdict m:iy have been But the Jury which tried the case was one whose honesty, integrity,: ability and good citizenship no one doubted, and now that thev have ex pressed themselves. It will come with as little grace on the part of those whose minds were made up to the contrary verdict, to complain of their decision as it would for those who are now pleased to have denounced the verdict had it been the other way. "There is but one thing to do and this is to let the Haywood case die In the. public mind as quickly as possible. In the mind of some It will linger as a dream a terrible nightmare in the body politic of the state. In the minds of others it must remain as a living lie to the arguments and doctrines of that po litical school which teaches the doctrine of discontent. "The law of Idaho will always be found pupreme and though the murder of Frank Steunenberg is as yet unavenged life and property within boundaries of this state will be found as safe and as Facred as elsewhere on the surface of the globe and the state of Idaho will al ways be found willing and able to act with fairness and impartiality, the law abiding will be amply protected and the violators of law will be suitably pun ished." The Jurors In the case continue public ly to discuss the part they played in ar riving at a verdict. Samuel D. Oilman, the last man to vote for ncqulttal, ald: "There has been published one state ment that I vent to correct. One of the jurors is quoted as saying that the jury had to spend a long, disagreeable and tiresome night in order to convince two Jurors that the defendant was not guil ty. I want to say that they never did convince us. I believed that he was guilty and I still think he is guilty and I want the world to know It, I simply acquiesced in the verdict of acquittal because I felt that I could not do other wise after I found the entire eleven oth er jurors consenting to the verdict, but -not because I was convinced that it was right. Kindly make the correction for me." ... A. P. Burns, Juror No. 11, said: "I was firmly convinced when we left the court room that the first ballot would show a vote for conviction. I still retain the belief that Haywood was guilty and only changed my vote be cause it struck me that If the evidence presented left eight men unconvinced of the guilt of the defendant, it would be impossible to get 12 men In another trial, and that it would be better to settle the question by acquiescing in their decision."
