Secretary MacVeaffh, Taft Ex
ponent, and Gov. Osborn,
Robsevelt Man, To Speak
LANSING, Mich.. Feb. 13.—A1l
signs point to big political fireworks
at the annual banquet of the Zach
Chandler club, the Ingham county Re
publican organization, tonight. Secre*
tary of the Treasury Franklin Mac-
Veagh, will talk on “What is a Pro
gressive.” and it is said that he will
not mine words In his description.
Gov. Osborn did not intend to ap
pear at the lainsing banquet, but
soino one informed him that Mac-
Veegh intended to fire a broadside
into the progressive Republicans, and
Monday the executive announced
that he would be in Lansing. Tuesday
night. Some strong arguments for
the renomlnaUon of President Taft
are expected from the cabinet mem
ber and it Is likely that his address
willwill percipltate a lively discus
sion.
Dr. John Wesley Hill, of New York
City, will deliver his famous oration
’Abraham Lincoln." but Inasmuch as
Dr. Hill Is a personal friend of Theo
dore Roosevelt, it is expected be will
deviate somewhat from his original
text when he hears Secretary Mac-
Veagh’s talk
The fact that Secretary of State
Mart indale and Gov. Osborn are on
the same program also lends spice to
the occasion. When the two came to
gether at St. Johns a short time ago.
Martiudale. who announced himself
a candidate for governor, did not
spare Osborn in his remarks and the
friends of the rival politicians ex
pects some more fireworks tonight.
This afternoon the Republican coun
ty convention was held In I-anstng.
Before the delegates arrived It was
rumored that the skids had been weH
greased for a resolution Indorsing
President Taft. Delegates from the
various township# are said to be di
vided on this question and the warm
est county convention In years was
predicted.
CLAIM PERE MARQUETTE
ROAI) IS IN NEED OF AID
SAGINAW. Mich., Feb. 13—Travel
ers and shippers say that the Fere
Marquette railroad should be double
tracked between Detroit and Saginaw
and Grand Rapids In order to take
proper care of the traffic and that
more rolling stock ought to be used
to handle the passenger and freight
business. It is alleged these things
are impossible because a burdensome
amount of bonds prevents the procur
ing of more money. In this connec
tion the complaint filed with the at
torney-general b/ the board of trade
to investigate the disbursement of the
proceeds from the 18.tm0.000 worth of
bonds which the railroad was author
ized to issue has more than ordinary
significance.
It is charged that the loan which
was authorjzed for betterments was
used mostly to take care of old debts
and that at least $5,500,080 of it found
Its way to the Morgan interests, to
liquidate old bond obligations.
Fortner City Attorney O'Keefe ha*
been retained by the board of trade
te- Took nf»«*e 4ne-44M»-'e- Interests* Wr
O'Keefe says that under the law the
only method Is to request the state to
institute quo warranto proceedings,
the railroad to show cause why Its
franchise should nor be taken away
r,n the ground that if ha* been Insol
vent. If this plan of proceedings Is
decided favorably, the case will be
heard before a jury tu the baglnaw
circuit court because the coinplalpt
was started here. If the Jury verdict
is favorable to the people, the attor
ney-general will annul the franchise
and Institute a suit in chancery to
have a receiver appointed to conduct
the affairs of the road.

master act of the ChrtHUu era. but
if you do not leave tins gathering
with a firm resolve to do lor your
country in this day as lincoln did in
bis the occasion is a failure. There
are questions Just as vital as yet un
solved as the question tn whose an
swer Lincoln is the conspicuous
figure.
“I believe that the wrongs will be
righted in the tribunal <of Justice and
not tn the shops of passion and preju
dice, but they will eat out the heart of
American patriotism unless exercised.
"The tariff is one of the problems
and I am as good a pfotectionist as
my friend Powers froen Kentucky.
But I must content myself with urglffi;
you to be manly and patriotic in do
ine your part in solving the problems
that beset us.”
Senator William Alden Smith was
toastmaster and addresses were also
made by Jonkheer J. Louden, minister
from the Netherlands, whose topic

wide influence;" Congressman Caleb
Powers, of Kentucky. "Abraham Lin

Loud Cheers As Osborn
Mentions Roosevelt
ALBION. Mich., Feb. IS.—"I stand
for the right of all the people to ex
press themselvea without repression
or espionage on the presidential Is
sue,” declared Gov. Osborn at the
banquet of the County Lincoln club
last night. He said the cost for the
special session will be small per
capita compared with the good re
sults that may come from the delib
erations of the law makers who are
to take up the question of a presiden
tial primary law and other matters.
Referring to the banking system
he said the savings bauk law ought
to be amended for wider use. He de
clared In favor of a plan whereby the
government would guarantee deposits
in national banka, saying unless this
is done the postal savings system
may succeed the present one.
Osborn was loudly cheered when
Congressman J. M. C. Smith asked
the banqueters to stand up as a
tribute to the governor. When Gov
Osborn said. “Regarding the proposed
p reaid preference primary it
you wanted to vote for Roosevelt"
the crowd went wild and cheered for
10 minutes, indicating the sentiment
was overwhelmingly for the former
president.

POTS ATTORNEY TO ROUT
"I'm Not Talking About That at
All,” He Say* to Steel
Trust Counsel
WASHINGTON*. Feb.. 13.—Rugged
“Jun" Hill, ex-president of the Great
.Sorthern, pioneer of trana-conilnental
railroading and philosopher on the
northwest, yesterday afternoon told
the Stanley steel committee his ro
mance of railroading.
The heavily lined face of the rail
roader bore an anxious, cautious look
as he took his place m the witness
chair. But his broad shoulders and
sturdy, vigorous figure seemed to
dominate the entire committee with
’lts latent force as he spoke.
The massive head, with Its rugged
features, was perched firmly on the
broad shoulders, and the small, snap
py grey e>es, glanced from beneath
the heavy, over-hanging brow up and
down tho committee In quick apprais
al of his questioners.
Stanley asked Hill regarding the
ownership of the Minnesota ore lands
The railroad magnate said that hla
leases on the Mesaba Range were
made through his sons. They were
first acquired, he explained. In con
nection with his acquisition of a bank
rupt railroad, the Duluth and Winni
peg, which had been sorted from Du
luth into the ore field.
Hill said that when he learned the
property was likely to be sold to a
Rockefeller concern he hurried to
acquire it himself.
While Stanley endeavored to trace
thi3 property to the steel corporation,
Attorney Reed, for the steel trust vol
unteered some information.
"I'm not talking about that at all,”
snapped Hill, pointing an Indignant
forefinger at the lawyer, who subsid
ed at once.
Hill estimated that tonnage leased
to the steel corporation was about
85,000.000 tons of ore.
"How much of that has been
mined?” asked Stanley.
.‘‘About one quarter." said Hill.
“How- much of this land was turned
over to the steel corporation, ’* de
manded Stanley
Hill evad*»d with a plea of loss of
memory, but Stanley finally got him
to “guess” that the steel corporation
leased from 3,000 to 5,000 acres. % The
lease ensured the Hill railroads a per
cent freight rate on all ore
For the 25.000 acres of land and tne
railroad. Hill said he paid $4,065,000.
"I paid a million dollars of this on
the spot." he said.
None of this, he said, was paid out
of the funds of the Great Northern
railroad.
Hill laughed when a moment later
Stanley t6ked him to enumerate some
of the companies which he owned.
"I am Interested In a great many
companies—that is the concerns I con
trol —and I could not carry even a
small part of them In my mind,” he
explained.
