PROGRESSIVE DAILY TWELFTH YEAR. NO. 154. ROOSEVELT IS 1* ST, LOUIS -TO DELIVER IMPORTANT POLITICAL SPEECH TONIGHT Two Hundred Greet Him As He % Arrives From Chicago, Where He Assailed Bosses WILL HE BOLT THE PARTY? This Meaning Is Placed on Chi cago Utterance, But He Makes Flat Denial BT. LOUIS, Mo., Maiyh 28.—C01. Roosevelt arrived In St. I Anils at 8:08 a. m. today. He was met at the Union station by a delegation headed by Gov. Hadley, and escorted to the Planters' hotel, for breakfast. Heated denial was made by Col. itoosevelt today to published stories that he had Indicated his intention to holt the ticket in cuse he failed to 'land the presidential nomination be fore the Chicago convention, and Prebident Taft was victor. Through his secretary he issued the following statement: "Any statement like that is a fake. Anytime 1 have anything to say on such a subject, 1 will say it inyselt and anything purporting to come from me unless I say it myself, is a fake/' Members of the Roosevelt party de clared that the colonel's statement In Chicago, to which so much slgnlfi catice was attached, was practically only a reiteration of what he had said in an earlier speech at Fort Wayne. Ind., in his attack on the "bosses," and the 'scandalous tactics," in the New York primaries. In Chicago he said: “If the people decide the way I think they ought not to decide, I will think they are unwise, but will have uothing to say. But if they decide against us as the result of Juggling of the people’s rights by the bosses l will have a good deal to say.” A cold misty rain was falling this morning, but a crowd of about 400 persons was on hund to greet the colonel.

Bennett, of the firm of Burn ham & Bennett, of Chicago, the fore most autnorities In the country on city planning, was in Detroit, Thurs day, exhibiting the first draft of the plans that have been prepared for t)etroit, to the City Plan and improve ment commission and committees /front the other organizations Inter ested tn the new plana. “Detroit lends itself very easily to our work.” said Mr. Bennett. “You already have a magnificent system of radial streets that can be readily de veloped to handle the Increased traf fic. The idea of city-planning is to provide for the growth of traffle in a city on the most convenient agd logi cal lines. We have taken the report of the police department on truffle •conditions as a basis for our work— and 1 want to say that this report is ihe most complete that has ever been made by any city in ihe country—and we have endeavored to lay out addi tional arteries for traffic that will pro vide for a city of a million inhabit ants.” w _ The plana shown by Mr. Benneti (.ill for the cutting of several new radial streets connecting the present arteries of traffic. One of the sea t tires is a long thoroughfare running southwest from Woodward-ave. and tho Orand-blvd., furnishing a tine approach to the new Michigan Cen tral terminal and extending on to the v river Other radials are Intended to relieve the traffic congestion on Wood ward and Jefferson aves. “The question whether those changes can be made can best be an swered by pointing out what has ueen done in Europe," said Mr. Bennett. ”In Paris, the whole city map was re vised by Baron Uaussmann. The growth of a city must be provided for In one way or another, and it is the endeavor of the city planner to pro vide for the growth in a logical, care i fully thought-out way which will ac complish the best results with the least radical change.” ' The plans to be looked over by the committees, Thursday, are merely tentative, and will be studied care fully from all angles before they are approved. f Clerk Accused of Embezzlement.

Osborn, Atty.-Gen. Kuhn and State Treasurer Sleeper this morning. The state officials took a lively in terest in the financial operations of the Pere Marquette, and General Manager Cotter and General Counsel Seward 1* Merriam, were forced to answer numerous questions put to them by the state officials. It was in timated there was a strong possibil ity that the Pere Marquette system would have to go into the hands of a receiver should the stute railroad commission refuse to approve the ad ditional bond issue. Gov. Oeborn, at the conclusion of the hearing, stated that the Morgan Interests that are known to be in con trol of the road’s finances at the pres ent time, should furnish the addition al capital. He declared it had never been shown that the house of Mor gan paid anything for the 110,000 shares of common stock which it now holds, and through which it controls the road. It was stated by Gen.

It was brought out that arbitrators at one time allowed the Pere Marquette damages to the extent of 81.364,000 ns a result of the combination with the C. H. ft D. According t»Mr. Cot ter, J. P.

Two years ago, Morgan dis posed of his C. H. ft D. stock to the Baltimore ft Ohio. At this juncture Governor Osborn asked Cotter how much Morgan paid for 110.000 shares of Pere Marquetfe and Cotter replied that he was of the opinion that Mor gan paid the market price for them. The governor said that it was his for practically nothing. DETROIT REDUCTION CO.

The city has a contract wilh-lhe Detroit Reduction Cos. for the disposal of its garbage, which runs for several years.

The reduction company has addressed a letter to Aid. McCarty, chairman of the committee on health and hospitals, informing him that any Attempt to break the contract', will be resisted in court, and damages sought for any loss to th« company. *The company claims that the contract Is a very advantageous one for the city.

COMMITTEE ACTIVE Meetings Will Be Held In Wards of Aldermen Who Voted To Delay Revision The move to reconsider the vote oft the council against a special election, Juile 13, to submit tne question of [charter revision, developed into a race. Thursday noon. It was known i Wednesday afternoon, that Aid. Gut man would file a notice of reconsider ation. but the alderman delayed giv ing the notice to the city clerk. He seemed to be sparring for time when the council held a meeting Thursday moruing to consider the estimates. Finally it became known that Aid. Lynch Intended to give notice of re consideration. Gutman filed his notice with the clerk at exactly 12 o’clock, beating Lynch to it by 15 minutes. “1 understand the water commis sioners are complaining that they may have to raise the water rates if they can’t get bonds at an early date,” said Aid. Gutman in explanation. “If th.it is the case I don’t want to stand in the way of a speedy revision of the charter that will give them the right to issue bonds." Lynch also gave the same reason for his action. However, the municipal ownership advocates brought strong pressure to bear on both aldermen and they regard it as a victory for theli side. The action of Lynch aifd Gutman means that the supporters of the special elections have gained two voles and increased their number from 19, the vote cast last Tuesday night, to 21. The advocates of the special election are jubilant ant} Pre dict that they will put the resolution through in the next meeting of the council. They look for a wholesale desertion from the ranks of the “antis.” The Municipal Ownership commit tee ot 100 is thoroughly aroused and means to fight to a finish. Several of the aldermen who voted in favor of the special election and friends of municipal ownership had a thorough discussion of the subject with Gutman, Wednesday afternoon and evening, with the result that ho gave his promise to move for recon sideration. The time is, qgnjparatlve ly short for the Municipal Ownership committee to arrange for a mass meeting' but this will he discussed again hi a meeting called for Thurs day afternoon. Aid. McCarty and Glinnan will seek to have the matter of reconsideration laid over for a week, next Tuesday night, if more time is required by the municipal own ership advocates to present their side of the case. In the meantime meetings will be held in every ward represented by aldermen who voted against the special election. The municipal ownership committee is co-operating with the Detroit Fed eration of Labor, which went on rec ord. Wednesday night, in favor of the special election. The two organiza tions combined can get several hun dred speakers ‘ and workers in the field this week. Fifteen members of the Municipal Ownership committee met Wednes day afternoon, and decided to hold meetings in the varous wards and appeal directly to the people to in struct their aldermen to vote for im mediate submission of the charter revision plan. The members ad journed to meet Thursday afternoon when they will consider plans to hold a meeting in the Light Guard armory, possibly Sunday nlghti "We are going right after them,” said Thomas L. Dalton, secretary of the Municipal Ownership committee, Thursday morning. “They will know they have been in a fight by the time we get through." He referred to the aldermen who voted against the special election. “The fight to elect aldermen who will abide by the will of the public has already begun,” Dalton continued. "If the present aldermen do not con sider the rights of the people ahead of tlie privileges of a corporation they will go down to defeat. We are in thfo fight for blood. We can get workers into the field to speak to the people about this matter within a day or two. We are going to send speak ers into every ward represented by uldermen who have taken the corpor-1 ntion side of this controversy.” The Federation of Labor in its reg- j ular weekly meeting, Wednesday • night, decided to throw the strength of Its organization to those In favor j of immediate submission of the char-J ter revision plan. Justice Jeffries ad-! dressed the members, speaking along the same line es when ne addre**ed the council committee when the ques tion was considered last Saturday af- j ternoon. The Federation decided to select a committee of 15 member* to work with the Municipal Ownership; committee. The two organizations purpose to make it an important issue and keep ‘ hammering away until they succeed in earn lug their point. Should the reconsideration be defeated next Tues-' day night the campaign will go on just the same and one of the alder-j men will bring in another resolution j for a special election whenever the j municipal ownership advocates he lleve they have sufficient votes, to put it through. mIT WEATHER Far Detroit mil vlrlnttn Thnrailax Might aotl Frida a, Head? aad ooaet. lied, with ratal moderate temperatarei moderate variable wlada.

HURON Detectives Take Clarence Keough, RaHroad Man, After Long Pursuit SAGINAW, Mich., March 28.—Clar ence Keough, alias Brown, aliac Davis, 27 years old. and married, a former Pere Marquette railroad man vrbyse home is in Port Huron, was ar relteii in Chief of Police Kaln’s office at 11 o’clock this morning charged Jointly with George Esson with the death of Thomas Major, the aged man, who was found dead under the church Bteps in Port Huron. Feb. 28. Detectives David Shannon and J. C. Fisher, who have been in Saginaw for two days, made the arrest. Keough blandly asked to be taken to Port Huron at once and the officers left here fifteen minutes after the arrest. Keough is under arrest on a John Doe warrant, but telegraphic informa tion which local police officers receiv ed from Prosecutor Thos. H. George, of St. CJair county, charges him di rectly with the killing of Major. Keough was made the victim of a trap by which Saginaw county gave up this man in order to turn him over to the detectives who say they have been chasing him through diftereni Michigan cities and especially in De troit ever since a short time after the crime. The officers declare they are sure Keough is the man they want. PORT HURON, Mich , March 28. The report of State Chemist Holmes, stating that no poison was found in any of the organs of Thomas H. Ma jor, whose body was found under the First Baptist chureh steps, month ago, was received by Assistant Pros ecutor Stewart this morning. The analysis Indicates that Major died from exposure after being leit there by George Esson and a stranger on the night of Feb. 26. This fol lows the prosecution’s previous the ory, and it is probable that Friday, when the examination of Esson is again called in polioe court, that the prosecutor will ask to have him held tor trial on a charge of murder.

SHEPHERD m HE'LL DISMISS NEW ASSISTANT Sore Because Auditors “Gig Back” On Permission To Employ Extra Man The objection of County Auditor lluhrer to the addition of another man to the staff of Prosecutor Shepherd, und the action of the board in u meeting, Wednesday afternoon, in rescinding its motion to grant the man and putting the matter up to the waya and means committee, which meets next week, have aroused the ire of the prosecutor, and he an nounced Thursday morning that he would dismiss his new assistant. John Alexander.. The incident has only served to broaden the breach between Mr. Buhrer and Mr. Shepherd, and It threatens to break off the cordial relations which have existed between Mr. Buhrer and Mr. Oakman for sev eral years, and which made these two men the real “kings of the county.” Buhrer Is “Bore", because Oakman for once sided with Auditor Robert son and voted to allow the prosecutor unother man. “I don’t know whether they have formed a combination or not, but if they have I’ll get along,” Buhrer said, 'J hursday morning. "I’ve paddled my own canoe before and I can do it again.” ; Both Robertson and Oakman deny I that any combination has been formed or talked of. They both say they were willing to grant the prosecutor another man for a short time, and voted that way because it was right. I “1 don’t think it is right to allow the prosecutor anothei man?’ said Buhrer. "In the last meeting of the board of supervisors, when estimates ! were being considered, he appeared before the committee and deplored the expense Incurred by-hls predeces sor, and now his expenses are run ning far ahead of those of any other prosecutor the county ever had. Now he wants anew man. and I have it on the best of authority, in fact know, that Shepherd has been using his clerks and the office, to help him in his )>et scheme of starting anew loan company which he admits is going to be a money-maker. Not only does he use the clerks, but he uses the office equipment to send out several thou sand letters advertising his scheme. Is it the duty of a public officer patd by the people of Wayne county to put in his whole time In the discharge ot his duly to employ his clerks in a private scheme of this nature? it ts just another of his plans which he starts with a loud hurrah, but which soon die a natural death.” CONGRESSMAN REDFIELD SPEAKS HERE TONIGHT Congressman William C.

BMRTStmmT CROWD WHEN HE SPEAKS < HERE SATURDAY RIGHT ______ Local Committee Advised That Big Delegations Are Coming From Outside Points 7 ARRANGEMENTS ALL MADE Everyone Will Get Equal Chance To Hear Colonel —No Reser vations To Be Made Arrangement* for the reception ol Col. Roosevelt in Detroit. Saturday night, were practically completed by the Michigan Roosevelt committee, Thursday morning. Indications are that the Ll*ht Ouard armory, where Col. Roosevelt will speak, will be crowded to the doors. Messages have been received from other cities saying that Roosevelt enthusiasts will come in delegations by street cars and trains. Toledo will send 150 ad mirers of the colonel in a special car. Charles A. Nichols, chairman of the Michigan Roosevelt committee, re ceived a message from the 'loledo delegation, -Thursday morning, asking him if he could not reserve seats for 150. Mr. Nichols replied that no seats will be reserved. The doors will be open to every one. Mr. Nichols and the committeemen received telephone messages from some of Detroit’s leading citizens ask ing him to reserve seats for them, also mentioning the fact that they would bring their wives with them. Wo men appealed to Mr. Nichols for re served seats, but he stuck to his de termination. Mr. Nichols received a telegram from Col. Roosevelt personally. Wed nesday afternoon, requesting him to meet the colonel in Chicago. Nichols will probably leave Detroit Friday night. The exact time of Col. Roosevelt s arrival in Detroit is conjectural. He is traveling in a si>ecial train and will make two speeches In Michigan out -1 side of Detroit, one at Ann Arbor and the other at Kalamazoo. Both of th# latter speeches will probably be from the back-platform of his car. Members of the Michigan Rooßevelt committee will meet the colonel at the depot and escort him directly to the i armory. He will arrive there about 8 o’clock, and proceed to speak at once. G. D. Pope will act as chair man of the meeting. A band has been engaged to play in the armor>. The? colonel Is compelled to leave Detiolt at ii o’clock the same night and will proceed to New oi k. Local politicians and friends of the colonel are looking for a corking good speech. It is thought he ‘Will depart from his printed manuscript, as he did in Chicago, Wednesday night, and tell Michigan people what he thinkß about the presidential preference pri mary and the attitude of Michigan s legislature in this regard. The coming of the colonel has In stilled fresh energy Into the Michigan Roosevelt committee. While It has been generally conceded for the past few days that the Roosevelt boom in Wayne county has lost some of its strength the committeemen are far from admitting defeat. • f am still firmly of the opinion that we will have the majority of Roosevelt delegates In the county convention.” said Mr. Nichols, Thurs day morning. “The situation has, however, changed in the last two weeks. Two weeks ago w-e had every :hing our own way. We now realize we will have to fight for the delegates but we are prepared to put up that fight and we know we are going to ; win. Personally. I cannot see any i waning of Mr. Roosevelt's popularity I in Wayne county.” —Seme of the 4-ohmers friends feel~i that the Taft supporters are striking i below- the belt. They say Taft work ers have exercised an influence over he saloonkeepers by representing Os born as an enemy of the saloonkeep eds and one of the colonel's chief supporters In Michigan. "There is nothing to It but a Taft I delegation from Wayne county,” said i former State Senator John D. Mac- Kay, manager of the Taft campaign In Wayne county, Thursday morning. “The Roosevelt boom has collapsed. We were a little late In getting start ed with the Taft campaign In Wayne county, but we now have the dele gates. There is no question about that. "1 see the colonel has put up an aw ful yell that the New York prl j marles were crooked. 1 talked with A. H. Green, of the Solvav Process ' company, this morning. He had Just ; returned from New York and had studied the conditions there. He In j forms me that New York never had cleaner primaries than it did this year." JAMES H.

Osborn to Say If He Is Candidate From a Staff Correspondent. LANSING, Mich., Jan. 28.—Just now there ia an unusual amount of speculation :is to the possibility or probability that Governor Osborn will i come out for a second term. It is reasoned that he may be precipitated into the acrap by the fhtenslty of the opposition which has strewn his spe cial sessions path with thistles and thorns. It is reasonably evident time n Michigan's fighting governor does decide that it is politically and moral ly up to him to take on his war paint and sliarpeu his tomahawk, there Is liable to be a gubernatorial fracas on in this state this year that will raise h cloud of dust all the way from De troit to the most nortbly point of old I’oint Keewenuw and make ail prede cessor alleged-tights look like lovo least. The governor has announced that the fight is on to determine whether the people or the brewers are boss fa Michigan and there seems to be ex cuse enough for a guess that if this matter is not settled by the right klntft of anti-brewery legislation at the present extra session, the supers. Rooseveltisn chief executive may fee| elected to make his appeal to the peo* pie on this issue. The governor when questioned to* day ns to whether or not he had any announcement to make in regard td his position relatlre to his talked*- about candidacy, said that he would not have anything to say until after this extra session. This statement from the governor gives an opening for the Inference that he would say something at the close loatUwS m Ns* Two.' HOOOCVKLT. ait TAFT, 4. iJONMV, Mlelt.
