YOUNG JEKYLL AND HYDE Leader of Gang of Yonkers Boys Surprises Police. MADE CRIMINAL BY A FALL Lad of Thirteen Surrenders, Fol lowing Arrest of His Com panions Saturday Night. Aleck Kellog-g. £on of William C. Kellogg, of Xo. 15 Lawrence street, Yonkers, leader of the gang of fourteen-year-old boys who have been conducting wholesale robberies in South Yonkers. walked into the Yonkers police station yesterday and surrendered himself. Two of his band. De L«on Hall, jr., of Lowerre, and Van Everte Kilpatrick, of Xo. 50 Rumsey Road, who were arrested on Saturday night, had told Captain Cooler, of the Yonkers police, the details of their burglaries, and named Kellogg as the leader. After his' pedigree waf taken the lad, who is only thirteen years old. told Captain Cooley a remarkable story. He said, and ia this he was corroborated by his father, that he met with an injury to his head several years ago by falling on the side walk, and ever since then he had been possessed by an inordinate desire to steal. The lad's father said that specialists who have examined him have declared he will never be rid of this desire until an oper ation has been performed on him. The boy is remarkably developed from a physical standpoint, being as large as a normal boy of eighteen and weighing 140 pounds. In addition to this he his wonderfully strong, his body being cov ered with abnormally developed muscles. He is unable to read, but has an intense liking for moving pictures and spends every cent he can get to see them, espe cially enjoying pictures of bank burg laries and c? other crime It is through the influence of such pictures, according to his father, that the boy was led to commit his most recent crime Under close questioning by Captain Cooley, the boy said he had entered other houses before for the purpose of burglary, each time at 2 o'clock in the morning. Or. every occasion, he said, he had been armed with a revolver and would not have hesitated to use it if to shoot meant his liberty. Young Kellogg then told the captain that he had twice tried to kill his mother, both times being led to the deed by the murderous strain induced by his fall in early youth Captain Cooley. who has been a policeman for twenty years and has had a wide ac quaintance with criminals of every descrip tion, said that he was surprised at the cool ness and skill as a crook of this thlrtten year-old boy. Kellogg appears to be a veri table Jekvl! and Hyde, for he has moments when he is as gentle and law-abiding as possible, but at other times his features are d'storted into a grimness and look of reck less daring that completely disguise him, and he acpears to age perceptibly. even while the transformation rakes place. As an evidence of his cunning and disre gard of consequences, young Kellogg told how -he had already planned to descend on the paymaster'? office at the Shady JLane shaft of The Bronx Valley sewer in the dead of night, with the intention of blowing up the safe. Eesides this, he said, he in tended entering the home of Alexander Stolz. of the Valley Farms Company, and hold up all who blocked his path with a loaded revolver. When Aleck heard of the arrest of his companions on Saturday night, he lay In hiding near the treasure cave in Van Cort landt Park, where the silverware and jew elry which he had stolen were placed, and, under cover or night, made his way to New York He went to the home of an uncle, Frederick Kellogg, in The Bronx, and told him what had happened His uncle advised him to surrender to the police It hae not yet betn decided just what ac tion will be taken against the boy, but it i:; thought that efforts will be made to cure him of his present criminal leanings. COLQUITT WINS IN TEXAS Anti- Prohibitionist Confronts Demand for Prohibition. Dallas. Tex. July 2 4 — Oscar B. Colqui*?. ami-Prohibitionist and anti-S.ubrP.ission'.st, will be the next Governor of Texas. The count of the votes in the- primary election, which has been proceeding- to day, has not materially changed the esti mates made last night. Colquitt has been nominated for Governor by a plurality which will crobably reach 60,000 Cone Jchn- BOa and William Potedexter, the Prohibi tionist candidates, are practically tied for second olace. The proposition to submit a prohibition amendment to the constitution has carried by about 20,000 This presents the anomalous situation of an anti-prohibition Democrat being nominated with a party demanding the submission of a prohibition amendment confronting him. Ir. the Congressional con f ests Congress men Randel! and Beal! have been renora inated. United States Senator Charles A. Cnlberson had no opponent. Republican precinct conventions also were held, selecting J. O. Terrell, a Demo crat, of San Antonio, as the nominee for Governor. The Democratic nomination, however, is equivalent to an election In Texas. Allison Mayfleld, the returns Indi cate, will h'~ continued as chairman of the' State Railroad Commission.

BRYAN SPLIT DEMOCRACY Majority of Delegates Opposed to His County Option Plan — May Step Down as Leader. Omaha, July Ii (Special). — Not since 1396, when so many Democrats deserted the standard hoisted by V.". J. Bryan and went over to Repub!icani?m or refused t:> vote, has the Nebraska Democracy been bo split into factions as it is to-day. And probably not since that time has the Re publican party in the state been so solidi fied and united and so confident of victory as at present. Complete success for the Republicans this fall means the election of a Governor to succeed the present executive, A. C. Shallen berger; a gain of three Congressmen out of the six Representatives of this state, giving Nebraska a solid Republican delegation in the House; a state Legislature of Republi can principles, and last, the re-eieetion to the United States Senate of E. J. Burkett, whose term exnire3 on March 3. 1911. Burkett is having little opposition In seeking- re-election. His only opponent te C O. Wheedon, of Lincoln, who is out aft.-r the insurgent vote, but is meeting with small success. Senator Burkett's Washing ton record of insurgency has won for him the support of Nebraska Progressives, while his course in Congress has kept all the "stand-patters" lined up. Wheedon has filed his application as a candidate for the Senate, and come months ago created a considerable stir, 'but this has ceased and Burkett is practically in control of the situ ation. He has succeeded in building up o:.e of the strongest organizations ever knov ri in Nebraska politics, and his re-election is predicted by many competent observers Opposed to Burkett on the Democratic side are Congressmen Hitchcock and TC. B. Price, each striving so strenuously for the Democratic nomination that the followers of the defeated candidate will largely re fuse to support the man who gets the nom ination. In the race for Governor the big fight which Shallenberger and Mayor Dahlman of Omaha arc- waging for the Democratic nomination presages the defeat of the suc cessful candidate at the hands of the fol lowers of the defeated one. Dahlman stands on a liquor plank, while Shailen berger is asking re-election or. an S o'clock closing law for saloons Dahlman's sup porters will never vote for Shallenberger, and the Shallenberger men. many of whom are Prohibitionists who are supporting the S o'clock law because nothing better or more radical can be obtained at present. wil! oppose Dahlman in every way should the Omaha Mayor receive the Democratic nomination- W. R Patrick, of South Omsha. is the Bryan candida'e for the place. Bryan Dividing Party. And over all as the cause of the conten tion and dissatisfaction among Democrats looms the figure ot Bryan, with his county option bill and his rule or ruin" policy. The split in the party is &ue in most part to Mr. Bryan. By injecting county option and prohibition into the campaign he has practically eliminated all other questions and has made ar> issue which is most un satisfactory to the party at large in the state. Returning from his trip to South America some months ago, Mr. Bryan found the Democratic part^ in Nebraska thoroughly organized and conrldent of suc cess. In the few months of his activities he has practically us recked its chances of electing its nominees and has sown discord where he found only peace and harmony. To the discord created by Mr. Bryan, as well as to the internal fight in the Demo crat ie party, Republicans largely owe their prospects of vlctorv. The Democrats will hold their platform convention in Grand Island on Tuesday Opposed to Mr Bryan and his friends are Congressman Hitchcock, of Oinuha. and Mayor James C Dahlman. also of that city, supported by Governor Shallenberger, who are fighting the effort to secured a declaration for county option. * The s'tuatio.: is an unusual one because the men who at present are most actively opposing Mr Bryan were formerly his strongest supporters. Congressman Hitch cock has stated his position as being op posed to county option until the people of the etate, under ar> initiative and refer endum law. shall declare specirlca'.ly for it. There is little doubt that the anti-county option men will present such a plan, and that it will be heartily opposed by Mr. Bryan and his friends. It is believed there will be an overwhelming majority opposed to him on th 6 question of county option and that he will carry the fight to the floor of the convention and there make a plea for a straight county option plank. Six hundred of the eight hundred delegates to the convention are either instructed or are known to be opposed to such a plar.k, and extreme interest centres on what c-ffect Mr Bryan's speech on the convention floor will have on the majority Richard L. Metcalfe, associated with Mr Bryan in the publication of the latter's pa per, his candidacy for United States Senator yt the last moment, in op position to Congressman Hitchcock. He baa received the unqualified indorsement of Mr. Bryan, who expresses the belief that M3t calfe can poll more votes than any other Democrat, hlrnself net excluded. Both Bryan and Metcalfe -were formerly em ployed by Mr. Hitchcock. All three hay? been closely associated in the political world until now, and by many Democratic leaders it is believed the coming &tate con vention will mark "the parting of the ways." There still remains in Nebraska a great number of prominent Democrats who have always styled themselves "Gold Democrats'* ar.d who have -sever been reconciled to Mr, Bryan. These leaders, one of whom, Con stantine J. Smyth, an Omaha attorney an.l a forceful orator, will be temporary chair man of the convention, are apparently «n control of the r.tate organization and have made common cause with Congressman Hitchcock. Governor Shallenberger and Mayor Dah'man. Many of them believe that Bryan should no longer attempt to control the party in this state, and openly* declare that he will be invited to step down from the position of party leader. • To Steal Bryan's Thunder. It is now expected that the Republican State Convention next Tuesday will steal Bryan's thunder. While Bryan has been trying to force county option and the initiative and referendum upon his own party, the Republicans have gone steadily along and without noise preparing to place planks in their state platform which will embody both these feature*. At the election the Republican candidates expect to draw heavily from the Bryan support ers in the Democratic party as a result. Neither county option nor the initiative and referendum are issues in Republican circles this year, yet because of the strong sentiment in the party many of the county conventions have instructed "their delegates to insert these provisions in the platform. The plunks will probably be inserted without a fight. REPORTS THEFT OF $3,000 PIN: Washington, July 24. — Paul Bakewell, jr., a young St. Louis lawyer, who is here with his father on business, has reported to the police the loss of a diamond pin which he valued at $3,000. It contained eighteen diamond*. It was taken, he says, from his room in the hotel where h«= is staying. Th detectives have not yet found any clew to the robbery. MAY OVERTHROW COX Contlnned from first page. affairs in his name. The r/osition then taken by him has been steadfastly kept. Quite naturally this has produced a novel condition of affairs in Ohio. The party has for decades been Koverned by strong lead ers Loyalty to them has been a marked characteristic of the privates and the sub alterns. Unauestioned support has always been accorded the state and national ad ministrations. There have been m.my Ohio Presidents, and to them the party has ever looked for direction. While not seeming, cr even wishing, to dictate, they have con trolled the party councils h«re at home, and no one considered their actions as unusual or extraordinary. This mild paternalism produced a flxfcd condition. Conventions were not expected to name candidates for the Governorship or enunciate political plat forms until they had been first vised at Washington. Looking for the Strongest Man. When President Taft declared that he would not follow this system his utter ances v/ere received with doubt— and, it may be said, strong doubt. The incredu lous ones could not picture a state conven tion deliberating without Executive guid ance. They now compose the minority The majority have the good sense to see that President Taft is in earnest, and have done him the honor to accept his word as final. „ Though he might have sug-?est«d the entire ticket and every plank of the plat form, he has said with decision that the delegates must themselves do these things, and now the task confronts them, all un used as they are to such labors. When it is remembered that the Democrats have nominated Governor Judson Harmon, who may be the President's rival in the Elec toral College of 1913, Taft's sacrifice will be appreciated at its true worth. Should the delegates; blunder on either candidate or platform the President will be greatly im perilled in his own state, for Harmon's re election undoubtedly assures his nomina tion for the Presidency by his own party. That the delegates and the party leaders are sincerely seeking for the strongest man and the most trustworthy means to de feat Harmon there Is no question. It is their difference of opinions that creates the gTeat doufct and division that exist upon the very eve of the convention. There are four candidates for the nomination for Gov ernor—Judge Oren Britt Brown, of Dayton: former Secretary of the Interior James Rudolph G?.rfield, of Cleveland; Secretary of State- Carmi A. Thompson, of Ironton, and former Lieutenant Governor Warren G. Harding-, of Marion. Judge Reynolds R. Kinkade. who had a strong following, took himself out of the race yesterday. Ju<3?e Brown's sponsor is George B. Cox, of Cin cinnati, whose early declaration for him. seme months ago, ha? made his candi-i dacy formidable. Mr. Cox is the last o? the old guard ot leaders in ranks were found Hanna, Foraker, McKinley. Sherman and others of a generation nearly extinct His power at home, after twenty years of con trol, is undiminished and his influence through the state still potent Analysis by him of the defeat of General Andrew L. Harris, the nominee for Governor in 190S, shows that it was produced by the desertion of the party by the German and the liberal vote. General Harris being a pronounced temperance advocate and the supporter of legislation particularly ob noxious to the liquor trade This analy sis is fortified by a study of the results ;n the five large cities of the state, which gave Governor Harmon a combined ma jority go large as to overcome the rest of the state. In Cincinnati, which President Taft carried handsomely, his majority "was slightly In excess of that given Harmon. Mr. Cox believes that Judge Brown, who will be acceptable to the liberal element and not offensive to the Anti-Saloon League, will hold the "wet" : vote of the party in line, and when this ; is done the natural preponderance in numbers of the Republicans will automatically insure a victory. Newark Lynching intervenes. Three weeks ago it seemed as if Cox's strategy would be adopted. Since then, the etate has been convulsed by a riot and lynching at Newark. the outgrowth of an effort to enforce the unpopular county prohibition laws. This has aroused the ire of the temperance forces, who are de manding that there must be no compro mise with such criminal liberalism Gov ernor Harmon, through the quick removal of the derelict Mayor and Sheriff of the offending community and the ordering of the Attorney General to practically super sede a suspected District Attorney ir. the prosecution of the rioters, has seized an important advantage with the temperance element without sacrificing the support of the "wets " Though such careful persons aa Se.-.itor Theodore E Burton insist -that Judge Brown should not be held responsible for what occurred at Newark, yet it is gen erally 3-ccertted. that he has been greatly weakened The moralists are also deeply offendt-d by Mr. Cox's offer, made through a Cincinnati newspaper, to bet $3.00 a each on the three propositions that Brown wih be nominated, that he will carry Hamilton County (Cincinnati) and that he will be elected Th-e.se things and the alleged slaughter of the Republican stnte ticket !n Cincinnati hi 1908 are being used with som.a effect in the upstate counties, sixty-two cf which have voted out the saloons and are represented by temperance men in the Gen era! Assembly. Former Secretary Garr.elds part in tha situation is an interesting one. At the out set it was disclaimed that he was a candi date for the nomination, although a year ago there was a pronounced feeling that he was the most available mar. in r he party. It i.=- known that this was then the view of Senator Burton. When the Pinchot-Ballinger controversy : broke out Gartield took sides with the first named, thereby coming into seeming con- ' flict with President Taft. He was promptly i set flown as impossible.

Many dele gates signed a pledge to support Garfleld, a headquarters was opened, with former United States District Attorney John J. Sullivan as camj aign manager, and a formal candidacy wa.- launched Garfleld is popular in the northern and eastern tiers of counties, as his father was asiOM him. and many promises of support have come and are coming to him It is a curi ous fact that this part of Ohio, which is the strongest in its allegiance to the Re- j publican party, contains the greatest num ber of progressives. Both the United States Senators ar« j aware that the President as an individual ' Republican 13 opposed to Judge Brown be- I cause of the complications his nomination - would produce, politically and personally In 1905 at Akron he denounced Coxa of- ■ fensive bossism and advised Republicans in Cincinnati to vote against his machine made tickets. The nomination of Brown woold rightfully be credited to Crx. acd the j President's embarrassment would need no pointing- out. It would be self-evident. It was the Akron speech that won him the independent RepabOcaai vote hi UN and en- > abled him to defeat the strongly organized and heavily financed Foraker movement ! for the control of the Ohio delegation to ! the national convention A Progressive Platform. The platform will be progressive Practi cally all of Garfield's demands will find a place In it save, perhaps, the recall of the judiciary, which, is deemed revolutionary and which Mr. Garfleld himself is said to be in favor of modifying. If an effort 1* made to indorse Secretary Ballinger by intima tion or innuendo there will be a fight. Pres ent indications are that this cannot be done. The same situation exists as to the unre served indorsement of the Payne-Aldrieh tariff law. If this is attempted there will be a minority report, and it will have the backing of the insurgent Congressmen. Spe cific and emphatic demand will be made for a tariff commission with something mere than mere oower3 of sleepy investigation. The tone of theae utterances will show the desire of the Ohio Republicans for a mere corr.clete redemption of the tariff pledge of 130& The convention which meets on Tuesday next will be presided over by Congressman Nicholas Lonjrworth, of Cincinnati, whose possible candidacy for the Governorship aa a "dark horse " persists. His speech, it is thought, will outline the platform, as it will be the product of conferences -with party leaders rather than' an individual expres sion. Senator Dick is touted as the chair man of the committee on resolutions, but he mr; be excluded from participation by the insurants in his own district, who are for GarfleM Senator Burton will likely be the permanent chairman of the body when the nominations are made.
