where the accident occurred is in an un

him. He was taken to the Metropolitan

petting dried he prevailed upon several
members of the club to go back with
him and help right the catboat.

Grand Trunk management raking the view
tr.at the time for arbitration has passed,
and that aU that the company requires in

sent to-night, and read as follows:

Leader of Gang of Yonkers Boys
Surprises Police.
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
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.
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.
They Cause a Loss of More than
Pittsbursr. Ju'.v 24 —Two local f!res caused
a loss of 5100,000 to-night. One in Richter's
Cafe, on Oliver avenue, in the downtown
section, threatened the Western Union build
ing and other property, and attracted thou
sands of onlookers. The loss was confined
mainly to the caf£ building, and was prob
ably within $50,000. 'Men In the Western
Union Telegraph office had to abandon their
keys for a while.
At Corapolis, warehouses and three other
buildings connected with the Consolidated
Lamp and Glass Company's plant were de
stroyed at a loss of nearly £75.000. Four
volunteer f.iemen were painfully hurt.

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

the Omaha Mayor receive the Democratic
nomination- W. R Patrick, of South
Omsha. is the Bryan candida'e for the
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

will have on the majority

world until now, and by many Democratic
leaders it is believed the coming &tate con

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.
Washington, July 24. — Paul Bakewell, jr.,
a young St. Louis lawyer, who is here with
his father on business, has reported to the

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
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

Mr. Cox believes that Judge Brown, who

Republicans will automatically insure a

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

of the derelict Mayor and Sheriff of the

When the Pinchot-Ballinger controversy :

Stur.g by the report that ther* had been
a deal effected between Senator Burton
and Mr Cox for the consolidation of the
two large delegations from Cleveland and
Cincinnati in the interest of Judge Brown,
insurgency broke out in Burton's home or
ganization. It was led by office holders
and nominees on the local ticket, who
feared disastrous consequences. 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

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.

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

The tone of theae utterances will show the
desire of the Ohio Republicans for a mere
