lii'imiinci's Attempt of Congress
to Destroy American
Kail roads.
Wimiimiton, Aug. 10. The House
io-ii.iv promptly disagreed to the Sen
ate amendments to the ranama Canal
bill, ami this radical antl-rallroad meas
ure ln gone to conference to be
whipped Into llnal form.
II Is acknowledged by those who are
(ipfiiwd to the meusuro that the bill
nlll lote none of Us so-called "pro-pr-"jlvc"
features In tho tinkering. In
fat i, the railroads will be lucky If the
till emerges from conference with no
more fanes than It carries at present.
The House Democrats voted for an
aosoltite prohibition against another
railroad holding stock In a competing
nater line, and the Senate conferees
ulll have a fight to limit this pro
Mbltlon to ships that pass through the
Vun.ima Canal and to leave It dlscrc-
mnary with the Interstate Commerce
Commission to say whether or not
her railroad lines shall be compelled
divorce their ship holdings.
' !. the belief, however, that the Houm
"tifcrees will Anally accept tho Senate's

was learned to-day that the amend
im 'it empowering the Interstate Com
merce Commission to decide whether or
:. i a nillroad shall be compelled to
u rcc Its steamship holdings was
.uly Introduced Int.. the Senate as a
-.l-ans of preventing the adoption of the
nuicnl Houte provision absolutely pro
h itlng ownership of a competing
Irsmshlp line by a railroad.
This amendment. It developed lo-day.
was drawn by Senator Hoot of New
York, although Introduced by Senator
.irti" of Oregon. The opponents of
if Mouse provision fell back on this
ur.ir.dment as the only meanH of pre-
on'inir the adoption of the radical pro
lamine proposed by the House.
The practical result has been to shut
t..- I unama Canal to steamships owned
bv tl,.- Southern Pacific Railroad, but
i s-ae thu steamship holdings of the

H New Vork Central and other roads

Sutnc light was thrown to-day upon

lileh provides that no ship engaged In

Gen, Saint Jaat Likely to Demand
the Prraldenrr.
Port-au-Prince, HayV, Aug iu. -News
that Gen. Tribonien Saint Just
has either started or is just about to
start for Port-au-Prince to claim the
Presidency of Hayti, bringinR with him
a big party of followers who have been
in exile in Jamaica sinoe the lato Gen.
Iconte became President, caused a
panic here to-day.
Saint Just cannot become President
without displacing Gen. Auguste, tho
Haytian Congress choice au Leconte's
successor, and Augusto will not give up
without fighting. He counts on the army
to support him, but it is said many of tho
soldiers favor Saint Just.
Reports have it that the Dominican
Government is preparing a demand for
explanation of Haytl's alleged activity
in stirring up a revolution in Santo Do
mingo. Between Saint Just and Santo
Domingo the people think there is pretty
sure to be fighting shortly and are seri
ously frightened.
That an agent of the Haytian exiles
in Santo Domingo caused the death of
Ioconte ha not been verified. The

Man Wanted in Rosenthal
Case Reported Under
His Confession Followed a
Hint That He Commit
Attorney Sullivan Points Out
Confirmation of Ton
Hot Hitumis, Ark.. Aug. 10. 111 and
without funds a man who said he was
Samuel Schepps, wanted In connection
with the murder of Herman Rosenthal
In New York, was arrested here to
night by detectives, presumably from
tho office of District Attorney Whit
man of New York.
The detectives say he Is wanted as an
actual accessory to the murder, but de
cline to discuss the case further. They
are w-alttng at a local hotel for other
representatives of District Attorney
Whitman, when Schepps will be taken
back to New York without extradition
papers, he having waived that right.
t Is said he has expressed a desire
to confess In full, If a safe escort to
New York Is promised him.
Tho man has been here several days
and has been known as Samuel Frank
lin. Another alias Is said to be "De
troit Red," although to the few gam
blers In the city at present he was
not known by any alias.
The suspect owes his capture to the
lid which has been clamped down tight
here for the last year.
"There Is no gambling here," he said,
"there are no gamblers here. Hot
Springs Js not the Hot Springs of old.
I couldn't make enough to get by on. I
knew no one from whom I could make a
raise. I became slk and am willing to
go back, it looks like the easiest way
The New York police said last night
that they had not received any word
of the arrest of Samuel Schepps In
Hot Springs, Ark.
Hint Followed Third Appeal
The true story of what drove Jack
Rose to the confession that put Lieut,
r cker in the Tombs charged with the
murder of Herman Rosenthal Is told
here for the first time.
It was the reply, whispered to him on
the afternoon of July 25 In the counsel
room of the Tombs, to the third message
he had sent to a police ofTlclal asking
whether he could rely on Decker's prom
ises of protection. This wb the answer
to his final appeal:
"Tho best thing for you to do Is to
kill yourself."
That advice pent to Rose one week
after he had surrendered was a' plain
Intimation that he was to be left to shift
for himself.
So Rose, who had been hoping against
hope, agreed then to the persuasions of
his lawyer, James M. Sullivan, nnd sent
Sullivan to District Attorney Whitman.
The District Attorney, who was at the
Equinox Hotel In Manchester, Vt, last
night, knows tne name of the police of
ficial upon whom Lieut. Hecker and
Rose hod been relying. This man's
name Is known to Mr. Whitman, to
Rose's lawyer, Sullivan, and to Max D.
Steuer, counsel for Brldglo Webber.
No feature of a crime whleh almost
dally has produced new and extraordi
nary developments was more Interest
ing than the story of Rose's wavering
and vacillation and his determination
after tho sulcldo hint to throw himself
on the mercy of the District Attorney.
Impretard lir Becker.
As he tells It, he had seen the power
of Lieut. Becker grow surely and
steadily. He had seen Decker treat
with contempt officials higher In rank
than himself. Uecker hud dinned his
ears with brags and boasts that there
was nothing the commander of the
strong arm squad could not do In the
Police Department. He had been hyp
notized by Rocker. Uecker had made
him an errand boy. If grafting was
so safe, why not murder? So Rose
took the pollco view that nobody cared
a whit as to what happened to a
gambler, a man outside the law.
Rose, with Uecker, had the notion
that there would be a sort of an In
vestigation, but that the hue and cry
would speedily die away.
It was on Thursday, July IV at 9
A. M. that he gave himself up against
the advice of the lieutenant. He slipped
from Becker's leash because his sus
picions had been aroused by tho visit
of Lawyer Hart and Decker's desire
to get an affidavit that would white
wash Becker. Rose surmised thjMi that
he was to bo made tho scapegoat. He
foil In his heart that he was to be
deserted. He tried to believe that
Uecker would make good In protecting
him, but the indications were all against
"I saw then," said Rose, "thut I was
nothing but a shiftless gambler, who
didn't count for much any wuy you
look at It. 1 saw that nobody would
believe my story. I felt that thoy wero
going to put the whole crime on mo

Washington, Aug. 10. President Taft,
It was learned to-day, figured last night
In the rescuing of two young women
and their automobile from & dangerous
situation In Rock Creek Park.
The President was out for an evening
spin with Major Rhoades, his aid, and
W. C. Herron, his brother-in-law. As
the President's: car rounded a curve In
Rock Creok Park the light suddonly
revealed an automobile hanging over the
edge of a steep embankment running
down to the creek.
The machlno contained two badly
frightened young women and a driver.
Apparently the automobile had Just
been stopped by a treo from plunging
down the Incline and seemed to be
hanging on a balance.
Tho driver was afraid to try to back
the machine and the women wero al
most hysterical. The President and the
other men In his car Jumped out and
helped the women out of the car. Then
the President's chauffeur fastened his
chain to the car hanging over the gulch
and pulled It out. Tho young women
thanked the President profusely, but did
not give their names.

Washington. Aug. 10. The highest
diplomatic significance Is attached to
the announcement mnde by President
Tr.ft at the Wihte House this afternoon
Hint Secretary of State Knox will go
to Jupan as the representative of the
President nt the funeral ceremonies for
tin- late Kmperor Mutsuhlto.
In 'his announcement President Taft
indicated that he regards the forth
coming Knox mission on a level ot
Importance with the famous visit of
Commodore Perry to Japan more than
half u century ago, which resulted In
the opening up of Japan to Intercourse
with the nations of the Western world
and the Influx of Western civilization.
Secretary Knox, uccompanlcd by Mrs.
Knox, will leave Washington August 15,
which Is next Thursday. He will
proceed to Seattle, Wash., and there
board un armored cruiser of the United
States navy which will convey him to
I'.unbford S. Miller, chief of the divi
sion of Fur Eastern affairs of the State
Department, will act as secretary of
the mission. Mr. Miller has lived more
thiiu twenty years In the Orient, speaks
Chinese and Japanese and Is the State
Department expert on affairs of tho
Far Fast. An Admiral of the navy
and a Generul of the army, neither of
whom has yet been selected, will ac
company the Secretary as aides.
Three Days for Funeral.
Secretary Knox will arrive In Japan
In time for the funeral ceremonies,
which begin on September 13 and con
tinue for three days, first at Toklo ana
then at Kyoto, the ancient capital. He
will leave Jupan soon after tho final
ceremonials and return to the United
States, with probable atops at Manila
nnd Honolulu.
President Tnft states In his announce
ment of the Knox special mission to
Japun thut It was decided upon to
"mark the cordial relations that have,
existed between the United States and '
Japan from the time of Admiral Perry
and Townsend Harris continuously
through the long reign of the lato
Itehlnd this general statement It Is
well understood here that there Is a
host of considerations which arc largely
responsible for the President's decision
, to send his Secrutury of State half
l way around the world.
These considerations are wholly aside
from the tltness of sending a special
j envoy to Japan at tho close of the
reign of the Emperor who brought his
country Into the full light of tho West
ern world. They are quite apart too
! from tin- fact of President Taft's real
personal regard for the late Mutsuhlto.
Mil to Remove .Mlna.
I Among other things It Is hoped that
Mr, Knox's visit will serve to remove
I whatever sting Japan hus found In the
, Mugdnlcna Uay Incident and Its re
sultant "Lodge resolution" and In tho
recent agitation In this country over
the manner In which Japan has con
ducted the trial of several Corean
Christians accused of conspiracy.
Uoth of those Incidents, especially the
latter, were the source of considerable
Irritation nnd embarrassment at the
State Department, embarrassing be
cause they were regarded as unneces-,
sary and unpleasant Insinuations against'
Japan. ,
It Is well known that the Japanese
as a people are peculiarly responsive
to attention and recognition from the
Western nations. Thoso hero ac
quainted with the Japanese predict that
the President's act In sending Mr. Knox
as special envoy will awaken the warm
est feelings of gratitude among the
The Knox mission should take Un
place, It Is predicted, as one of the
most notnlile nets of International
friendship over performed by an Ameri
can President nnd which will Und great
upreclutlon In Japan.
The Knox mission will have an even
greater slgnlllcance In connection with
the Far Eastern situation as a whole.
No one ts'lleves Mr. Knox Is going tn
negotiate or attempt to negotiate any
new treaty with Japan affecting the
Interests of that country and tho United
States In the Far East, or even endeavor
to tiring about n mutual agreemcne
between the two Governments.
