The Western Union Has a Right to

Chicago. Oct. 28.The United Stat'-3
court of appeals affirmed to-day the de

use them without complying with the
regulations of the board regarding their
Chicago, Oct. 28.An important prin
ciple of law was established to-day when
Judges Jenkins, Grosscup, Baker and
Bunn, of the United States court of ap
peals, handed down an opinion to the ef
fect that the Western Union Telegraph
company has a right to property in the
news which It gathers and that such right
does not cease when the news Is published
on tickers rented to Its patrons.
In %aylng down this new principle the
court of appeals affirms two decisions of
the lower court and forever enjoins the
National Telegraph News company, the
Illinois Commission company and other
defendants from using the quotations In
question. The court says:
"The business of appellee Is that ot a
carrier of Information. The gist of its
service to the patron is, that by such
carriage the patron acquires knowledge of
the matter communicated earlier than
those not so served.
'The ticker with Its printed tape is an
Implement or means only to this commer
cial 'end which the patron or patron's pat
ron may utilize to the end intended, but
may not appropriate to some end not in
tended, especially if such appropriation
result in injury to or total destruction of
the service. In short, the law being clear
ly inadequate to that purpose, equity
should see to It that theone who is served
and the one who serves, each gets what
the engagement between them calls for,
and that neither, to the injury of the
other, shall appropriate more.
"The Immediate business of the appellee
brought to our attention may not arouse
any great solicitude. It relates to the
gathering and distributing of news not
looked upon perhaps In all quarters as es
sential to the public welfare. But the
questions raised are of much wider signifi
cance. They involve, among others, that
modern enterpriseone of the distinctive
kchlevements of our daywhich, combin
ing the genius and the accumulations of
men with the-forces of electricity, combs

President Harper talked about the
hurch and civic life. He said fn part:
"As It is now, the church has alienated
the laboring classes, a large part of the
wealthy class and to some extent It Is
alienating the intellectual class.
"The time has gone when the church
may control directly the affairs of state
and of commercial and industrial Institu
tions but it must control them Indirectly
by controlling the individuals who are
responsible for them. The preacher must
have the workingman's point of view and
the millionaire's too, so that he may help
both and promote harmony between them.
"The church must cultivate the spirit
of democracy. There Is too great a sur
vival of the aristocratic ideas of the past.
Very few preachers grow to the point of
being able to work among the rich. But
less can bring themselves to work among
the 'lower classes.' "
After further criticism of the churches,
President Harper said that there were a
few exceptional churches which were do
ing a great work, and that Mr. Rocke
feller's church was one of them.

"When arrested he was in the act of re

Fisher worked a new game.. He called

the manager that he was Mr. Ha ys and
that he wanted two coats delivered at

MR. SPOONEB'S CASE
Washington Considers the Story
That He May Not Return
Gov. La Follette Insists That He
Take a Stand on the State
From The Journal Bureau, Moom *S, Port
Washington, Oct. 28.From a source
considered in Wisconsin to be of the high
est authority, there comes to Washing
ton the almost Incredible news that Sena
tor Spooner Is not likely to be returned
to the senate. This explains the meaning
of Governor La Follette's bold declara
tion at Appleton last Saturday that he
would support Senator Spooner for re
election only after the senator had pub
licly pledge himself to abide by the state
platform. This the senator lias not thus
far done. It is contended that the gov
ernor is stronger than the Spooner-Payne
combination and that he will not yield an
Inch to them.
A friend of the senator states that in
New York a short time before Mr. Spoo
ner went back to Wisconsin to partici-.
pate in the campaign, he said that he.felt
as if he were going to his doom. He en
tered the fight, his friend says, mainly
through a sense of duty to his long-time
supporters, and also because he was urgd
to do so by the administration In Wash
ington. It is believed that If he sees he
is beaten, he will announce in a few days
that he is not a candidate.

CPBAIS SOT SATISFIED
Draft of Reciprocity Treaty Re
turned by President Palma
Washington. Oct. 28.The fact record
ed In the news dispatches from Havana
that President Palma has returned to
Washington the draft of the reciprocity
treaty without his approval has not shak
en the belief of the officials here that they
will have a treaty ready to submit to
congress by the date of its next meet
ing. As soon as Mr. Quesada, the Cuban
minister here, receives the document he
will submit it to Secretary Hay. The
latter already has knowledge of the gen
eral nature of the objections found by the
Cuban government. Then negotiations
will be continued on the basis of the
original draft. For it Is explicitly stated
that the proposition submitted by the
state department was in no sense an ul
timatum and the matter Is still open to
adjustment. Generally stated, the Cuban
objections are based on a belief that the
United States has demanded undue con
cessions in the remissions of duties on
United States products entering Cuba,
ranging all the way from 10 per cent to
80 per cent, in return for a 20 per cent
cut on Cuban sugar and tobacco coming
into the United States. As the difficulty
is one strictly of figures and not of prin
ciple, it is the opinion of the state de
partment that it can be settled amicably.
If not and the Cuban government in
sists terms that the state department
cannot grant the two countries will sim
ply drift along without a trade treaty of
this kind. As Cuba will undoubtedly be
the principal sufferer it is expected here
that she will be the first to make another
advance toward a treaty.
There has been an important change in
the program respecting the whole fabric
of Cuban treaties, tl had been original
ly intended to perfect a reciprocity trea
ty before undertaking to deal with other
relations that must be defined by treaty.
As it is now seen that the subject of reci
procity is one that will require consider
able time for its disposition, the govern
ment here is about to undertake nego
tiations looking to the ararngement of an
extradition treaty which te very much
needed, inasmuch as Cuba threatens to
become a sinkhole for American criminals.
The Cuban government will be at. once
Invited to open negotiations on coaling
stations. It is not expected that this can
be done without some friction, because
there has been a growing disinclination on
the part of the Cubans to surrender these
sites to the United States. Proper sites
for coaling stations were selected tenta
tively several months ago by Admiral
Braford. chief of the equipment bureau
who is directly in charge of naval coaling
stations, but of the four points selected,
one, Havana harbor, has been abandoned
from regard. for Cuban sensibility. It is
not likely that further sacrifices of 'that
kind will be made, and the other three
points, namely, Nipe, on the north coast,
and Cienfuegos and Guantanamo on the
south coast of the island ,111 be chosen as

Cambridge, Mass., Oct. 28.Before the

ing on "LabfF Organizations From an Edu
cator's Point of View," severely criti
cised the labor unions. He said:
"From an educator's point of view it
appears Ahat the labor unions have been
flying.In the face of established edUCa-
tlonal principles. For example, they inter
pose obstacles in the way of young people
being educated to the skilled trades, limit
ing the number of apprentices to a pro
portion smaller than the Interest of the
employer dictates. This is contrary to afun
damental principle of American life and
of American education that is, freedom
of access to means of employment.
"Another feature. of the trade union
principles Is the limitation of the day's
work, not a limitation of hours, but a
limitation of the amount of work. This is
entirely Inconsistent with a fundamental
object of American education, which is
to enable a man or a woman to do in a
given time the greatest possible amount of
work consistent with health.and strength."

to bring the mayor back before election
for fear of antagonizing his friends and

To begin with, the criminal calendar
was badly congested and the mayor could
not have been tried until the November
term of court even if he had been in the

What is more, the sheriff has had no*-

such a trip.
The law placing the sheriff's office on a
salary basis, which was passed at a special
term of the legislature, last spring, makes"

recover money expended in sending his
deputies outside the state. '

at all fit to make the trip now and would
not for for some time. She is understood
to have returned to West Baden.

fang this morning informed T he J o u, r -"
nal correspondent that it would beout
of the question for him to accept the in

his sudden recall. He will return home
either via San Francisco or Vancouver.
If by the latter, route he will be compelled
to go .through the twin cities, and "lay.

train connections. It may be possible to

The ministry. of commerce to which Minister
Wu has been appointed is a special board
whose duties relate to the empire as a whole.
He will be in-association with' Chang-Hl-Lung
and' perhaps with others, the title of each of
whom will be minister of commerce. Yuen
Shi-KaL may .be one. of these. It is the hopo
of Minister Wu that Yuen-Sbi-Kai has been so
designated as he is a friend of Mr. Wu and
a statesman and diplomat of ability and dis
tinction. It-seems the more likely, bowerer,
that the title conferred' upon htm is ot an hon
orary character and- that in common with other
Chinese viceroys he will have to do with the
ministry of commerce only so far as the oper
ations of the ministry may affect the particular
province i of which he is governor.
