the Way at State Convention.
IN FIGHT FOR CONGRESSMEN
Will Take Active Part Next Fall
— Tammany Men at Recep
tion to Chairman Dix.
Members of the executive committee of
th« Democratic L-ea^ue gathered at the
JT.'itl Astor yesterday to congratulate i
John A. Dix. one of their number, and
themselves, on his election as the head of
the Democratic State Committee. In the
afternoon they decided to hold another con
ference, similar to the Saratoga confer
ence, at which their movement was born.

th- way to that body. It was also de

Tammany Men Out in Force.
Every county in the state was said to be
represented at the reception tendered to
Chairman John A. Dix at the Hotel Astor
In the evening:. The north ballroom was well ,
filled, and while there v.as a considerable
sprinkling of upstate men the Tammany
adherents were there in full force, headed
by Charles F. Murphy and the genial
"Tom" Smith. Many of the oldtimers
looked askance at the reformers.
Thomas M. Osborne. president of the
league, acted as master of ceremonies and
presented the callers to the guest of the
evening, who was also attended by Robert
Grier Monroe, chairman of the local branch
of the league, and William Temple Emmet,
chairman of the executive committee.
Congressman William Bdser was present
•nd helped along his gubernatorial Doom,
while Herbert P. Bisse.ll, of Buffalo, also
had a boom for Governor In full action,
and John R. Burton, of Brooklyn, who
was the loca! secretary of the national
committee during the last campaign, was
being vigorously .groomed for the Lieu
tenant Governorship by the younger men.
John A. Dix himself, in reply to a ques
tion whether he would accept the nomina
tion for Governor, said there was no elec
tive position that could tempt him to resign
hit- present office.
••Why. I would as soon think of voting
the Republican ticket as accepting the
nomination for Governor." he added.
Talk of Expectations.
After all the visitors had been intro
duced Thomas M. Osborne called for order
and introduced Robert Grier Monroe.
president of the local branch of the
league, who announced that the Xew York
County branch, though late in the field,
would make itself felt in bringing in
I thousands of Democrats who did not fol

Kmmet spoke along the same lines, as did
Edward M. Shepard. who proclaimed him
self the mouthpiece of the unorganized,
John A. Dix declared himself pleased at
the harmony which reigned. It was a
time, he said, for laying aside pursuits of
bread winning for the cause of honesty
and public welfare. He referred to the
roused national conscience and the preva

Its friends," and styled by the Chief Ex
ecutive "the best tariff ever p<rs*ed." He

"Jolts cf Hysterical Espionage."
"Business, which forms The backbone of
K. cur industrial life and places this nation
El high in the financial and commercial list

pursue the course of development without
the jolts of hysterical espionage. Business
should be required to conform to the laws
on our statute books, no more, no less. If
our laws do not apply to present conditions
we should exact sane and safe laws which
will give stability to business. If our busi
ness is treated impartially it will pay a
reasonable and honest assessment or tax.
The principal objection to tax is the use
made of the money so collected, for e»;
cessive tax always means extravagance.
Oar relations with other or adjoining coun
tries should be amicable, mutual and on a
business basis, approaching that straight
line of honesty or not at all."

"YOGI" ELLIS HELD IN BAIL
Jury Doesn't Know Who Killed
A coroner's jury returned a verdict yes
terday in the case of Paul Hamburger,
the young German who was shot in the
office of Samri Ellis, a clairvoyant, at No.
9 West 45th street, that the deceased came
to his death at the hand? of some party
or parties unknewn. At the request of
Deputy Assistant District Attorney Turn
bull. Ellis, who has been a prisoner in the
Tombs since the time of the shooting,
June 17. was held to await the action of
the grand jury. Coroner Holthauser fixed
bail at $10,000.
At .the hearing yesterday testimony was
given that besides the clairvoyant business
which was carried on by Samri Ellis and
Dr. Edmund Ellis, who posed as his broth
er, the two men were engaged in promoting
the affairs of the Oriental Remedy Com
pany and also of the Blue Ridge Mining
According to Edmund Ellis the com
pany owns a coal mine in Ohio, and it was
for the purpose of working this mine that
the company was formed. The Oriental
Remedy Company was formed to sell a
certain kind of tea which purported to be
a cure for many diseases.
Dr. Ellls's testimony brought out the
fact that his real name was Edmund R.
Cook and that Samri's name was Charles
F. Balwanz. They were not real brothers,
according to the doctor, but only brothers
in religion and in "psychic work."
TOO ILL TO GO TO COURT
Mrs. "Tom" Pierce in Bellevue
— No Effort for Her Release.
Mrs. Alice Crowninshield Rogers Pierce,
friend of actresses, huntswoman, club
woman and divorced wife of Thomas W.
Pi-rce, of Boston, is still at Bellevue Hos
pital, to which she was removed on Tues
rtnv. after raising a row at the Park
Casino. She spent a restless night, and it
was impossible for her to appear in court
to answer a charge of disorderly conduct.
William L. Payne, husband of Mrs. Les
lie Carter, offered to secure bail on the
n:ght of the arrest, but as Mrs. Pierce was
:.t the time in a condition described by the
physicians as "alcoholic hysteria."' it was
deemed better to leave her under restraint
at the hospital.
Miss Adele Ritchie, the acres*, -with
whom Mr?. Pierce was living at Pelham,
aided her friend in securing her liberation
from a sanatorium in Connecticut in 190S,
but she made no move yesterday, so far as
is known, toward getting her out of

HOLDS UP COHEN AWARD
Mayor Wants to Know What An
His Rights in Matter.
WARRANT CLERK'S TIMIDITY
Saw He Had Learned a Lesson
from the Cohalan Case, and
Wanted To Be Advised.
Mayor Gaynor helfl up yesterday the
Controller's warrant for $35,000 in favor of
ex-Justice William N. Cohen in payment
of Mr. Cohen's services as a special coun
sel In the franchise tax cases of the Con
solidated Gas and other lighting companies.
The Mayor decided to wait for an opinion
from the Corporation Counsel as to his
right to interfere in such cases.
The fee, which was determined upon as
being fair by Controller Prendergast after
consideration and consultation with advis
ers, was announced by him last week. It
was based on the $906,000 which was added
to the amount paid by the companies
through the efforts of Mr. Cohen and was
placed at 3%i per cent of that amount.
Th© Mayor's attention was called to the
warrant by James T. Curtin. the warrant
clerk, who countersigned the famous Co
halan warrant for $48,000. He is reported
to have said:
"Mr. Mayor, here is another warrant
from the Controller to pay another lawyer
$35,000 in the same suits that the Cohalan
warrant was for, and considering all that
has been said about the Cohalan warrant.
I don't want to sign this new warrant
without your direction."
The Mayor is reported to have told Mr.
Curtin that he had nothing to do with the
amount or the merits of the claim, that
the auditing Of claims belonged exclusively
to the Controller, and that the Controller's
audit bound all other officials and that he,
Curtin, had only the formal part of coun
tersigning the warrant, provided it was
made out In due form.
Then, according to the report, the con
versation proceeded as follows:
"Yea, Your honor," said Curtin, "that
may be true, but you know what was said
about my signing the Cohalan warrant, and
I hope you will tell me what to do with
this one. I want also to point out to your
honor that this present bill is for a much
larger amount, proportionately, than the
Cohalai bill was. The Cohalan bill was
for 650 days at $73.84 a day, while this bill
is for 239 days at $146.44 per day." *
"Is that so?" said the Mayor. "Well, I
will take it and look at it. and probably
the best way -will be for me to get the
advice of the Corporation Counsel about
this matter so that it may be settled once
for all in the minds of everybody whether
you or the Mayor are in any way" liable for
the audit and payment of these bills."
"The report accompanying the claim
speaks for itself," said the Controller last
nifiht. "ami shows what service was per
formed. The results of Judge Cohen's
work are shown, and I consider the re
muneration reasonable. It Is in the re
sults obtained that the services of Judge
Cohen differ essentially from those of .Mr.
Cohalan. Judge Cohen's cases 'orougli.t
ah«-".it a difference in favor of the city of
approximately $900, 0n0. and In view of this
I think it will be agreed that liis fee is
none too large.
"You will observe, too. that the method
of procedure in fixing the fee has been
very different in this case from that in the
Cohalan affair. As soon as I had decided
upon the amount to be paid Judge Cohen.

HATS VALUED ONE HALF
First Lot of Seized Panamas
MAY SETTLE WITHOUT SUIT
Importers To Be Allowed to Give
Bonds and Take Stock for
The work of appraising the first lot of
Panama hats seized on Collector , Loebs
order for alleged undervaluation has been
completed. The home value was said at
the Custom House yesterday to have been
placed at $124,552; the first valuation was
$66,000. "Word of this new valuation, with
the papers in forfeiture proceedings, may
be sent to the United States Attorney's
office to-day. There may be a settlement,
however, without suit.
Franklin MacVeagli, Secretary of the
Treasury, was informed of the completion
of this first step in the Panama hat under
valuation cases as he settled down yester
day for a morning's work in the Custom
House. It was then griven out that the
papers would go to the Federal Building,
and that then the importers would be al
lowed to Rive bond and would be permitted
to get as much of the stock as their bond
This power to get the goods is what the
importers have been struggling for ever
since the first seizure and the stop order,
which tied up $1,000,000 worth of the head
gear and checked the Panama hat trade
for the season. The Treasury agents, now
that the appraisal of the first lot has been
made, will start in at once on other lots.
At the rate at which they have been pro
ceeding, it was said last evening, the hats
would be ready for the market about next
Secretary MacVeagh was in conference
with collector Loeb and others yesterday
considering the offer of settlement of an
mporier who undervalued his goods, and
also considering the conditions at the Ap
praiser's Stores. Appraiser YVnnmaker was
at the conference later, and Mr. MacVeagh
granted his request for three additional
examiners of passengers' bag-gage, who will
get $1,800 a year each. The first step in a
shake-up was taken in the abolition of the
place of examiner of cutlery.
The Secretary of the Treasury was in
formed before he left the city that the
case of the government against Isaac
Marcuson, who had come from Belgium
with nearly $12,000 worth of diamonds, had
been satisfactorily settled by permitting
.Marcuson to plead guilty. The latter was
fined SiJOO. and the diamonds and a few
sapi'liirps, altogether appraised at 511.079 92,
Soon after his plea was taken a petition
in bankruptcy was filed against the dia
mond merchant, and Judge Hounh appoint
ed Walter C. Lew a.s receiver to take
possession of any goods he mi^ht find.
The claim against Marcuson is for $11,777,
the value of diamonds it was alleged he
had not paid for.
Secretary MacVeagh left last evening for
New London, and to-morrow will return to

Thirty-five Anti-Trust Prosecu

WICKERSHAM GIVES LIST
Twenty-two Suits Begun Under
Roosevelt and Thirteen Under
Taft — Status of Cases.
TFrom Thfi Tribune Burcaul
Washington. June 29.-Attorney General
Wlckersham has compiled a list of prose
cutions by the government under the Sher
man anti-trust act. extending as far back
as tho beginning of the Roosevelt admin
istration. This list Indicates not only the
number and character of the prosecutions
up to date, but the status of the cases. It
shows clearly the activity of the Depart
ment of Justice in recent years to curb
monopolistic control of commerce and to
prevent unlawful restraint of trade.
Unde. the Taft and Roosevelt adminis
trations there have been thirty-tive Indict
ments of corporations and individuals for
violation of the Sherman act. Thirteen of
these have been returned since Mr. Taft
became President. Most of the cases are
pending. The government has lost a Hm
of them, but in several others It has won
notable victories. One of the cases begun
under the Roosevelt administration, that
against the New York, New Haven &
Hartford Railroad Company, was discon
tinued a year ago this week. The case
beg-un on May 31 against the Missouri
Pacific and twenty-four other railroads,
growing out of the proposed advance in
railroad rates, was discontinued yesterday.

In view of the effort made for political
effect by Democratic Senators and Repre
sentatives to prohibit the expenditure of
any of the money appropriated for the en
forcement of the anti-truat laws to the
prosecution of labor organizations, it is
interesting to know that the records of the
Department of Justice fail to show that
there has beer, any prosecution of a labor
organization under the Sherman law by
the government at any time. In a few
days the Sherman act will have been on
the statute books for twenty years.
