FRESIDENTS GATHER AT TAFT
States. MEHMED V.
Hundreds of congratulatory letters
are coming to the White House. Many
are from personal friends, but scores
of others are from business and social
organizations and from individuals
unknown to the White House. Some
are in verse and others clothed in
Biblical language.
It was decided today that while a
full list of the presents shall not be
given out. the presents themselves w ill
be placed about the mansion, form
ing a part of the scheme of decoration
so that guests may be able to see at
least as many of them as they can find
in the crowded corridors and rooms.
Weather Outlook Is Bad.
President Taft took time despite the
hurry and rush, to send an autograph
ed photograph to an old man in the
Episcopal church on Long Island, who
sent his congratulations and expressed
the hope that the president and Mrs.
Taft might be spared to celebrate their
diamond wedding.
Despite the clear skies and bright
sun of the forenoon Professor Willis I
Moore, chief of the weather bureau,
took a decidedly gloomy view of the
outlook for the evening.
"The president has only one chance
in a hundred of having a garden paity
tonight." he declared at the White
House. Professor Moore did not trust
his prediction to the ordinary messen
ger but brought it over to the presi
dent himself. "Conditions are most un
favorable." he said. "There will proba
bly be showers this afternoon and to
night. It is raining almost everywhere,
even in the British Isles and in Scandi
navia." One of the early callers at the White
House todav was Mgr. Kalconio, ti
papal delegate. He felicitated the pres
ident for himself and also brought tiie
congratulations of Pope Pius. Tho
president received from Miss Harriet
Waters Forbush of Lancaster, Mass.,
a wedding slipper worn by his great-
great g rand mother.

CUSTOMS FRAUDS FOUND
Slillions Stolen From Government by
Importers of Cutlery.
Washington, June 19. FTauds
amounting to several million dollars in
duties on importations of cutlery dur
ing the last few years have been dis
covered by secret agents of the cus
toms service who have been working
in this country and in the Solingen
district of Germany whenWs most of
the imports come to the United States.
Secretary of the Treasury MacVeagh.
began the investigation several months
ago. It is not sufficiently completed to
say what action may be taken to re
cover the duties of -which it is alleged
the government has been defrauded.
Customs officials say the peculiar con
struction of. the cutlery schedule of the
tariff has given opportunity for Im
mense frauds on comparatively small
under valuation. A seizure of cutlery
made in Xew York on Saturday illus
trates that fact.
In 43 cases of cutlery entered as hav
ing a value of $10,24:;, an undervalua
tion of only $868 was found but on that
seizure the government had been de
frauded out of $3,397 in duties. The
duty on cutlery is very high. The spe
cial customs agents have collected from
the Soldingen district complete samples
of every kind of cutlery which comes to
the United States. An organized cam
paign of searches and seizuress will be
prosecuted from now on In an effort to
check up the frauds.

strong at a net advtnee of 1 7-S to 2

According to on Authority the crop
in the rich Jim River valley, South
Dakota, has been almost entirely de
stroyed. Other large sections in the
same state and through southern
Minneapolis and northern Iowa were
also reported to be in a bad w-ay. One
well known expert sent in dispatches
saying that all the rain which may
fail now can make little difference as
the wheat is heading thin, and much
of the crop is only 6 to 10 inches tall.
The cause of the alleged damage is
the recent extreme heat.

Topeka Capitalist Laughs at
Sensational Story.
Rumor He Paid Mrs. Lytle Fifty
Thousand Dollars.
SUE IS OUT OF TOWN.
Her Attorney Denies the Story
of Cash Settlement.
Culmination of Rumors Current
Several Weeks.
Following the unexpected departure
of Mrs. Eloino Lytle for an unexpected
stay in Michigan, the following tele
gram appeared in a. Kansas City pa
per Saturday evening:
"Topeka, Kan.. June 17. (Special)
Topeka's biggest society engagement
is all off. Joab Mulvane, the capital's
only millionaire, was engaged to Mrs.
Georgs D. Lytle, widow of George D.
Lytle, a rich man and a leader in so
ciety, and the" builder of the West
lawn addition to Topeka. Mr. Mulvane
is 74. Mrs. Lytle 46.
Mr. Mulvane has been a, widower
two years. Mrs. Lytle has been a wid
ow two years. The engagement was
announced about three months ago.
As soon as it was announced the three
children of Mr.. Mulvane objected to
the alliance. They are E. W. Mulvane,
national eommitteman from Kansas,
Republican party; Mrs. Harrison Mor
gan, society leader; Mrs. Speed
Hughes, society leader. Their objec
tion was made known this week, when
Joab Mulvane went to a hospital for
treatment.
"The phj-sician who has Mr. Mul
vane in charge told him if he married
he would be dead in six weeks. This
was kept from Mrs. Lytle. who insist
ed upon a fulfillment of the contract.
Mr. Mulvane refused and she threat
ened a suit for breach of promise.
"A settlement has now been reached
by which Mr. Mulvane pays Mrs. Lytle
$50,000 and she ' withdraws from the
contract.
"The marriage was to have taken
place some time this month."
Joab Mulvane has just returned
from Christ's hospital, where he re
cently underwent an operation. He
was seen this morning at his home at
Twewlfth and Topeka avenue. When he
was shown the above clipping Mr.
Mulvane folded his arms, leaned back
on a pile of pillows and laughed.
Members of the family had kept the
report from him.
"I would make a statement." said
Mr. Mulvane, as he looked at the vis
itor with the eye of a sick man, "but
if I did, they wouldn't print it right."
He w-as assured that this conclusion
was a mistake that anything. he said
would be quoted accurately.
"Well," replied the Topeka capital
ist, "I want to tell you that there is
no trouble between myself and Mrs.
Lytle. This story is a network of ab
solute misrepresentations."
Daughter Prevented Statement.
At this point, Mrs. Hughes, a daugh
ter, interfered and declared that her
father should not discuss the matter.
She said he was too weak to stand the
excitement and that he was going back
to the hospital tomorrow. Mrs.
Hughes forbade her father to say any
thing. She herself would neither deny
nor affirm any of the many persistent
rumors. Then Mr. Mulvane again tried
to talk, but he was stopped.
At one time Mr. Mulvane started to
discuss the alleged uprising in his
family, hia efforts to quell a domes
tic storm and the report that he had
given Mrs. Lytle $50,000 to heal a
bleeding heart. But he never finished.
It was mentioned that for weeks
there hag been current gossip that
Joab Mulvane desired to wed the pret
ty young widow, that to appease the
sons and daughters in his own house
hold he had decided to rive to each
$300,000 and provide that the balance
should be bequeathed to the widow at
his death.
It was also mentioned that the fre
quent auto trips which Mrs. Lytle
took in the Mulvane car with the To
peka millionaire ass a companion, were
discussed at length at all the fashion
able dinner parties in the aristocratle
w-est end. But Mrs. Hughes stopped
this discussion.
"I am ready to leave this town for
good," exclaimed the daughter with
considerable feeling, "if the privacy of
a person's home is not bo sacred but
that every gossip and every newspa
per considers it public property."
Mr. Mulvane Still Weak.
Mr. Mulvane himself was quite weak
from his recent illness. But he seem
ed less ill at ease than hia daughter.
He refused to discuss whether he had
or had not proposed to the pretty
young West street widow; and the
daughter declared that the alleged
family disturbances were not proper
material for newspaper stories. When
asked for a denial or affirmation of
any part of the reports, she refused to
talk and prevailed on her father not
to make himself ridiculous by giving
an interview.
Mrs. Lytle returned from a trip to
her old home in Michigan about a
month ago. For several months ehe
had been much in the company of the
retired capitalist. She visited the
Mulvane home several times before
Mr. Mulvane was taken to the hos
pital. But it is said she never went
to the hospital while Mr. Mulvane was
there. However, his condition was
reported to her daily whether at
Mr. Mulvane's request, no one would
state.
Mrs. Lytles Attorney Denies It.
At the office of Bennett R. Wheel
er, attorney for Mrs. Lytle, was a gen
eral denial of any cash transaction
between Mulvane and the young wid
ow. It was also denied that any
knowledge of a pending marital agree
ment had ever reached the office of
Wheeler & Switzer.
Then it was mentioned that the P.
W. Mulvane car stopped for two hours
this morning at the Wheeler home.
But Wheeler denied this also and de
clared emphatically that there is not
at the preseut time or never had been
any talk of a settlement of the sup
posed marriage vow; or of a confer
ence between IX W. Mulvane, attorney
for his father, and Wheeler acting for
Mrs. Lytle.
Both Well Known.
Eloine Lytle is 46 years old. Mr.
Mulvane has just passed his 74th year
post. Mr. Mulvane's wealth and in
fluence have made his name prominent
not only in Topeka. but over the state.
Therefore when Joab Mulvane be
gan to pay more than passing atten
tion to a handsome widow of 46.
there was food for the after dinner
parties that made these events worth
attending.
Then came the rumcr that the
wealthy Topekan was to divide his
estate that he was to marry the
young woman of his hear. whether
the children so willed or not. From
thence to the report of Saturday there
was but one discussion at the club
meetings that attracted general atten
tion. Perhaps as the reports were
handed from house to house from To
peka avenue to College Hill, they grew
with unceasing regularity. No one
who knows seems willing to say. Per
haps Topeka will never know.
But ambitious Mrs. Lytle had sud
denly stepped into the limelight of
public discussion. Berore she was
known only as the widow of George
Lytle, who was too busy for dinner
parties and cared too little for society.
to buy box seats at the opera house.
So Mrs. Lytle's ambition for society
was visibly curbed. When Lytle died
he left an estate of some $20,000. The
widow received a half of this. Her
husband was an active business man
and he it was who built up Westlawn.
Not .though, until Topeka came to
look on her as the prospective Mrs.
Joab Mulvane did her siar shine the
brightest. It is said, though, that
when the courtship reached the fever
point; when Joab Mulvane determined
he would not remarry and the alleged
heart balm was passed, that the no
toriety was all too much for even Mrs.
Lytle. Then she left for Michigan. On
her father s farm near Adrian Mrs.
Lytle will SDend the summer. To
morrow Joab Mulvane will return to
the hospital and will retain the
story of the courtship and no one
seems willing to tell the complete de
tails of the courtship which is un
doubtedly at an end.
POURING INTO LONDON.
The Coronation Crowd Is Arriving ly
Train IjOads.
London, June 19. A score of King
eorge's coronation guests accompanied
by their suites reached London this
morning with as many more from
foreign courts and states due to arrive
this evening will complete practically
the. assemblage of foreign missions.
John Hays Hammond, special United
States ambassador and his suite will
be included in the later arrivals, com
ing from Dover bv special train.
Throughout the day special after spe
cial rolled into the different London
railway terminals bringing in princes
special ambassadors and their suites
from all points of the globe. The
streets presented a lively appearance
with a constant coming and going of
the royal carriages with their escorts
conveying the guests to Buckingham
palace and other places and the pri
vate residence given over lor the en
tertainment of the envoys.
The night long work of the army of
decorators served to enliven most of
the streets in the center of London.
Flags gave a gala appearance, which
the intermittent rain storm could not
spoil. The decorations and illumina
tions are on a scale never before at
tempted in England and the demand
for electric lighting is so great that
the electrical companies have served
public notice that their capacity to
supply the current has been reached
and that they cannot undertake fur
ther contracts.
The German crown prince and his
party. Prince Henry of Prussia and
Prince Henry of the Netherlands were
among this morning's arrivals. The
Duke of Cannaught and other mem
bers of the royal family flitted from
station to station to meet each new
comer, undeterred by the showers of
mud that their swiftly moving vehicles
tossed up.
The public appears smittne with the
coronation fever. They throng the
streets in such multitudes as to make
progress anywhere in the center of
fashionable London a matter of difficulty.
TOWN CLOSES UP.
Garden City's Bluest of Blue
tLaws Are Being Enforced.
No Cigars, Soda Water, Drugs,
or Ice Cream Sunday.
GAKAGES LOCKED UP.
No Gasoline for Weary Motorist
Who Is Caught Short.
Agitation AgainstLawsMay Cause
Commission Flan's Adoption.
Garden City, Kan., June 19. Whlla
other Kansas towns are kicklnsr mote
or less strenuously because of the en
forcement of blue laws. Garden City
has the bluest blue laws in the state
and they are being enforced.
Sunday it was impossible to buy a
cigar, newspaper, or anything else here.
Garages shut down and motorists were
left without gasoline. Tho town was
closed up. And the remarkable part of
it all is that Mayor Waller Harvey,
the man who is enforcing the law, is
hit hardest of all by its enforcement.
Saturday night the proprietor of a
local smoke house posted a notice in
the window of his shop reading:
: Buy your cigars and soft drinks
: tonight.
Tomorrow we go fishing.
Drug Stores Close.
He went. Every other business man
might as well have gone. Druggists
were given permission to keep druir
stores open to sell drugs only. They
closed. No drugs, no soda water, no
cifia rs.
There is much complaint against the
blue ordinances which cover both labor
and amusements and petitions will like
ly be circulated this week asking that
the ordinances be repealed. This will
bring on a fight as the council is about
evenly divided.
By those who do not favor the blue
laws, it is declared that Mayor Har
vey plays his violin in the Methodist
church each Sunday night and is pai l
$1 each Sunday night for it. Marshal
Milligan is also a Methodist and so aro
some of the members of the city coun
cil.
Mayor Evades the Law,
Harvey is the proprietor of a news
stand here and it is declared that he
evades the law by selling papers on
Sunday and collecting on Monday. An
other scheme declared to be u-sed by the
mayor is the collecting papers on Sat
urday and delivering them on Sunday.
The agitation against the blue laws
has caused a revival of the talk of a
commission form of government. If the
present city administration refusps to
repeal the blue ordinances it is believ
ed that the commission rorm win do
urged as the only means of relief and
sentiment may be such as to cause the
adoption of the new plan.
