(pMAHIZER-aPL EIMANc&UKlS ITUREiDO BACK T0MEXIC0 Dr. Rafael L. Moline Predicted Fall of Madero. Released From Prison Here Said Rebels Would Succeed. GOODS ON MURPHY Ban Johnson May Chase Him Out of Baseball. "Czar" Has Long Sought Scalp of Talkative Charles. New York. Feb. 11. Ban Johnson is on the trail of Charles Webb Murphy, owner of the Chicago Cubs. The American League czar will Bend the "Alibi King" the way of Horace Fogel if he can. Ban holds any amount or incriminating evidence ngainst the object of his detestation. Among other damaging data the czar holds the original communication of Murphy to Fogel, instilling the subtle !oison of revolt which led to Fogel's disbarment. He holds also the letter of Fogel to Murphy written during, the celebrated world's series of 1911, in dicating that National League interests were pooled in Chicago and Philadel phia. Last but not least. Johnson still retains all the evidence collected against Murphy in 1909. tending to show collusion between the windy city promoter and a syndicate of ticket speculators which assisted in the dis tribution of pasteboards for the Cubs Tiger series. An American League magnate de clared today that Johnson was finally prepared to force his "hand. Ban has been gunning for Murphy for many a year. He has played a waiting game, 'ontent to let evidence accumulate af ter a series of disappointments. Fogel's letter to Murphv which Fo gel absent-mindedly placed in an en velope addressed to Herrman. inti mated a proposition by which the Cubs were to be strengthened at the expense of the Phillies. "For." said Horace, "we have no chance to cope with the Athletics here. fo why not play one end sure and put a champion in Chicago?" Again Ban was called off by his confederates and by the club owners of his own circuit who were afraid of the breath of scandal. Murphy had twice escaped by a nar row margin. But when he lost hope of lifting the pennant in 1912 he be gan once more to stir up trouble. He egged on Fogel to make-his celebrated intimidations of dishonesty on the part of Tom Lynch and the National League For these insinuations Fogel was brought to trial and expelled from the organization. Murphy again played in luck. The National League officers were unable to secure from a Chicago news paper man a letter which Fogel had written him proving Murphy the in stigator of all Horace's woes. The Na tional League, however, did succeed in passing a resolution which made it a capital offense to circulate similar ru mors in future. Ban Johnson has succeeded, how ever, where the parent league failed. He has secured from the Chicago writer the much coveted piece of evi dence and he is not only willing to produce it but determined to make the National League go the limit or show a bluff. "Murphy will be lucky to escape this time," declared the American League- informant, who did not care to have his name associated in the muddle. "Johnson has that bird right where, he wishes. If the Na tional League does not take the matter up seriously, then Ban will make it the business- of the national commisson to do so. Murphy is in a pretty mess of it." .' '. AFTER TEN YEARS. Frank Myers, Who Escaped Lansing-, Caught in Chicago. Frank Grimes to Kansas City. F. E. Grimes, former state treasurer, and now a resident of Fort Stockton, Texas, will open real estate offices in Kansas City within a few days. The Fort Stockton Pioneer says: "F. E. Grimes and family, within a week or two, will leave Fort Stockton to lo cate in Kansas City, where Mr. Grimes will have offices and handle real es tate. Mr. Grimes has been located here for the pas tthree years, and for about two years was local agent for me orient l'ownsite company, which brought him into close relations with the work of building up the town.1' Frank Myers, alias Frank Williams, who has the record of enjoying liberty longer than any person who has escaped from the ivansas state prison in 2 5 years, was recaptured today in Chicago and will be returned at once to Lansing, -where he must serve near ly five years for assault with intent to kill. In 1903 Myers was sent to the state penitentiary from Osage county for as sault with intent to kill. He was gtven an indeterminate sentence of from one to five years. Six months after he was taken to prison, Myers made his escape. Since that time state officials have searched the con tinent in an effort to recapture the man. On several occasions the state has heard of Myers, but he was always gone when an officer went to look for him. Now he is in jail in Chicago and will be returned to the Kansas prison this week. For his trouble in Osage - county, Myers must now serve the remainder of a full maximum sentence of five years. With good behavior, it is prob able that he would have "been paroled within six months from the date of his escape. Under the prison rules, he must now remain in the peniten tiary the full five years, -which means that he has four and one half years yet to serve. ' Mrs. Bond Is the Beneficiary. A life estate to real property valued at $9,000 is left to Mrs. Carrie E. Bond by the terms of the will of her husband, Robert B. Bond, filed for probate. Mrs. Bond has been made administrator of the estate. At her death it passes, by the terms of the will, to a daughter, Alice Horsley, of Kansas City, Kan., Helen Gladfelter, another daughter of Pueblo, Colo., and Charles Bond, a son, of Toptka. The sum of $100 is bequeathed to Mrs. Emma Grannes, a sister, for her help in making pleasant the last days of their mother. ' ' Leavenworth, Kan., Feb. 11. The fall of the Madero government in Mexico was predicted by Dr. Rafael L. Moline, who with . eleven other Mexicans was released from the fed eral prison here January 31, after serving sentences of one year and one day on charges of violating the United ' State neutrality laws. He, however, set February 15 as the date. Moline, who is rated as a million aire, is thought to have gone direct from Leavenworth to the City of Mexico, where with his money he succeeded in stimulating the plot to overthrow the government. When Moline was released from the prison, . he , volunteered a state ment on the future of his native coun try. He said: "I predict that the government of Madero will fall before February 15. 1 It will be impossible for it to live any ; longer than that. - It is my intention ! to go direct from. Leavenworth to the , City of Mexico, where I shall carefully , look over the situation. What will be ! done then remains to- be seen." J "Is it safe for you to go to Mex- ! ico City?" was asked of the distill- j guished ex-prisoner. It is not safe for a reputable man to go anywhere or do anything in Mex ico," was the reply. "However, it is my intention to go Jfack, and I assure you when I get there something will be what you call it? doing." ( Two Factions in United States Prison. I Dr. Moline was accompanied by Jose Gomez, said to-be related to Felix Gomez, who now is in power in the Mex ican capital, and Juan Hidalgo, former mayor of Juarez, both of whom served similar sentences in the prison here. , Nine other Mexicans, all said to be in j sympathy with Madero, also were re-; leased jthe same day, but they went by themselves. The prison authorities took this precaution to prevent a con flict between the two factions on the prison lawn or its immediate vicinity. : Moline is said, to have been one of those who financed the revolution against Gomez. When Madero was de clared president he failed to recognize his backer as , he should, whereupon Moline started and helped to finance the second revolution. He was arrested on a charge of smuggling arms -and ammunition across the Mexican border from the United States for use by rebel troops.

In 1908 he was candidate for congress in the "Appeal to Reason district" and re ceived the second largest vote given a Socialist candidate in America that year. Of Ben Wilson, Engene V. Debs says: "Ben WTilson is a close student, a clear thinker, a man of intense earnestness and a speaker of eloquence and power. As a propagandist and organizer he has rare efficiency and his work, speaking for itself is his best recommendation. I have heard him and marveled at his wonderful power over an audience.
