Snivel, representing the United States Printing company of Cincinnati, Ohio, is in the city today and states that he has recently closed a contract with the Anheuser-Busch Brewing com pany for 250,000,000 Budweiser beer labels. This is the largest quantity of labels ever bought at any one time by any one buyer and yet it 'represents but a portion of the total .quantity required by that company during the ensuing year.

SCOTT ft BOWNE, 49 Pearl Strwt, New York. srM .ijr"'$*- BADGER STATE W RUN SEARCHLIGHT Wisconsin Assembly to Consider Measure for Investigation of Public Service Corporations. Special to The Journal. Madison, Wis., Dec. 7.The real ses sion of the legislature will come to night, when a loint resolution will be presented, providing for a joint commit tee to investigate insurance and public service corporations, this being in ac cordance with the recommendation of Governor La Follette. The investigation is to be more sweep ing than that conducted in New York. It is proposed that the committee shall investigate the methods' of doing busi ness, examine and investigate into all expenditures in all matters, especially those relating to legislative and muni cipal lobbyists, contributions to politi cal candidates, expenses of officers and employees, the nature and condition of investments .and the manner in which funds, securities and assets are being, guarded. Under the resolution,-books^ papers and documents must be pre sented for investigation. Provision is made for the committee's right to secure legal services and to re- f,or1906,thel to governor on or before Nov. al facts found and testimony given. It is predicted the resolution will be rushed thru the assembly, but in the senate, it will be warmly discussed. Oapitol Bill Reported. The senate bill for a $5,000,000 capitol was reported for concurrence and a bill was introduced providing for the elec tion of election clerks in April and per mitting counties, with a two-thirds ma jority vote of county boards, to raise the bridge tax to $2,000,000. The meas ure also seeks the re-enactment of the old bridge law of 1903. The Dunn pocket ballot law, passed last winter, was reported for repeal by the committee on privileges and elec tions. Assemblyman Miller today presented a resolution asking Governor La" Fol lette to resign either the governorship or the senatorship at once. It was tabled amid much hilarity on a motion from Assemblyman Andrew of Superior. Fight for Governorship. All eyes are now on the repub lican gubernatorial nomination. Aspi rants for this office are no long er cloaking their ambitions. Wil liam D. Connor, who has been de tained at home by illness in his fam ily, has arrived and from now on his campaign for higher political honors will be vigorously pressed. That he will be a candidate for governor is now publicly announced by his friends. Freed from the fear of La Follette's wrath, capitol employees are openly working for Davidson, while' the Len root committee is working in the as sembly for support for the speaker in his candidacv. A joint resolution is being prepared to provide for the legislative investi gation of railroads and insurance com panies in accordance with the gov ernor's message. Wprk for Special Committee. The special committee for investigat ing will probably consist of fifteen per sons, ten members of the assembly and five members of the senate. Senator Frear ma be chairman. It will be directed to continue in session after the adjournment of the legislatures Its powers are to be generaT'sfrid'strong. it is cu) open secret that the so called eleveertrh.-fl.por league'will be one of tne first institutions to' come under the searchlight, and it is claimed by those who have paid attention to the matter that the Wisconsin insurance companies will also be quizzed. TJie eleventh-floor league, as it is known, was a publicity bureau, from which campaign articles were sent to papers in. the state, in the state cam paign in 1902. No such bureau was maintained 1904. SEEKSlOLlFlED WESTERN WORLD Root Will Visit Brazil to Show South America Uncle Sam's Attitude. Journal Special Service. Washington, Dec. 7.There is a world of politics in Secretary Boot's determination to visit Brazil next sum mer. Its result, it is hoped, will be a hemisphere solidified against European aggression. As revealed yesterday by an official acquainted with the reasons underlying the secretary's decision, he proposes by his trip: HrstTo show the people of Brazil and other South American republics that the United States does not assume the role of protector, Taut considers that the states of the new world should enjoy ab solute equality with each other. SecondTo demonstrate that the United States thinks enough of their friendship and good will to welcome at tentions such as one nation of Europe shows to another. To Remove Suspicion. ThirdBy personal explanation to remove the suspicion that territorial ag grandizement is the secret mainspring of the policy of the United States. FourthFrom this demonstration of friendship and good will and acknowl edgment of equality to obtain a recog nition of the obligations as well as the benefits which the Monroe doctrine im poses upon the Latin-American states and to insure their cordial support of it. In other words, to have an' unwritten al liance of the states of the western hemisphere, the purpose of which shall be the enforcement of the Monroe doc trine against the world. The people of the country generally are only beginning to realize the grow ing importance of South America, but exporters and officials have a keeWer ap preciation of the value, commercially and politically, of that section of the world. They have had an opportunity to study the development of such coun tries as Brazil, Argentina and Chile, the}- see the wonderful strides those states have made, and they anticipate a great future for them. They also have come in contact with the activity of the trading nations of EuropeGer many, Great Britain and Italy. To Checkmate Europe. Exporters believe the United States should not permit European goods to ob tain such a firm foothold that they can not bo shaken loose. Officials hold the United States should not allow Europe to acquire a preponderating influence in the southern republics so they could be turned against us and serve as a balance of power. It is these considerations which have made Secretary Boot conclude it is worth while to pay court to South America. He will go to Rio deY Janei ro, the capitol of Brazil, when the Pan American congress is in sessiotoC 'm* iteA NOBWEGIAW STKftMEB .SIKKS.

DO BANKS SWELL CAMPAIGN FUNDS? Senate Passes Tillman Resolution Asking Shaw for Light on Query. Washington, Dec. 7.The senate to day passed a resolution of Senator Till man calling on the secretary of the. treasury for information as to whether reports of examiners show whether or not national banks make contributions to political campaigns. When Mr. Tillman called up his reso lution he called attention to the recom mendation made by the president in his Annual message or 1904 and 1905 for, the enactment of a law for protection, against bribery and corruption in con nection with elections. He quoted with especial emphasis the president's re marks concerning campaign, contribu tions by corporations. "Our chief executive has takei\ a very progressive stand to secure purity in elections,'' he said, and added, "every good American will say 'well done.'and look for progress along that line.*' He also quoted statements by Secre tary Boot and Perry Belmont of New York of the same tenor as the presi dent's remarks, saying that he would be impartial as between political par ties. He conceded that the secretary might not have the facts wanted, but he thought he ought to have. Incidentally, Mr. Tillman said that he had been in formed that the controller of the cur rency has been investigating the sub ject of bank contributions, with the view of instituting legal proceedings. At 2:18 p.m. the senate adjourned until Monday. Senator Allison, chairman of the re publican caucus of the senate, today announced the personnel of the commit tee to fill vacancies on committees as follows: Hale, chairman Aldrich, Cul -lom, Perkins, Clark of Wyoming, Nel son, Spooner, Kean and Beveridg/.

"Denver is better suppled with hotel facilities than our city, and yet 30j000 people were cared for there in private homes. We can do better than that here and will have no difficulty in taking care of all who come. "The grand parade is still the great event of the encampment. At Denver 22,000 men were in line, and as they marched slowly, three hours and- a haft were required for the line to pass. In addition to this parade, other events may be introduced, and should be here so that there will be something going on every day and night of the encamp ment. Essential Requirements. "With the entertainment of the G. A. B. there 'are almost innumerable de tails to be looked after, but as I view, it now, the following are the most' es sential requirements of a successful en campment "FirstGood depot facilities so that trains may arrive and unload without delay. In this respect our five depots are better than one would be, and yet it may be wise to irranpe for unload ing some trains before they reach depot, in case it becomes necessary to do so. SecondPlenty pf special officers, guides and information booths. "ThirdAmple baggageroonuat each depot, so that visitors may no be de layed in obtaining such oaggage as they may have checked. "FourthAmple room and a suffi cient number or clerks to avoid delay or tedious standing in line to secure the validation of railroad tickets. "FifthPlenty of sleeping accom modations and eating places, with quick service and without advance in price. "Other things are necessary, but_if these five conditions ate properly met, the Minneapolis encampment will be better than any of its predecessors and will reflect lasting credit on our city." FRENCH CHURCH BILL IS PASSED Long Fought Measure Separating Church and State Becomes a Law. Paris, Dec. 7.The senate has adopt ed the bill for the separation of church and state by a vote of 181 against 102. The vote was announced yesterday, amid enthusiastic scenes and cries of "Long Live the Republic," and "Long Live Liberty." Former Premier Combes particiDated in the debate, contending that the measure assured neutrality of religion, moral liberation and social pacification. This is the final parliamentary stage of the bill, which will be promulgated in the Official Journal today, when it will become effective immediately. The council of state will devote three months to the framing of the adminis trative details of the .new regime. The action of the Vatican regarding the new law has not yet been definite^ ly announced. The public worship budget of 1906 will be reduced from $8,400,000 to near ly $6,800,000 consequent on the grad ual diminution of the salaries paid by the state to the clergy. The fundamental principles of the bill insure entire liberty of conscience respecting religion, with restrictions wheh are intended to preserve public order. The bill sweeps away a system which dates from -1801, when the fa mous concordat was signed by Pius VII.. and Napoleon. This gave religion a governmental status, the churches be ing government property, with a clergy paid by the state, and the entire church administration being under the direc tion of a member of the president's cabinet. The new system abolishes all laws and regulations under the con cordat and terminates the authority of the concordat itself. Photographing Mars.' The so-called "canals" of Mars have keen successfully photographed at the Xiowell observatory, Flagstaff, Arizona -r-a feat never before accomplished.

DEPEI^PERKINS, MXAIfeMUSI GO Senator's" Resignation to Be Sought and Insurance Men to Be Retired. Now York, Dec. 7.The trustees of the New York,. Life now realize that public opinion' demands the retirement of John* A. McCall as president. Some of the trustees have asked John Claflin to take the presidency. Mr, Claflin, it is understood, has declined because of the pressure of other business. Other available men are being sought by those of the trustees who believe Mr. McCall must go. Mr. McCall himself declares he has no intention of getting out: hasn't been asked to get out and that the policyholders want nim to stay. He admits that Perkins is going to retire. Seeks Depew's Head. Chauncey M. Depew will be asked to resign his seat in the United States sen ate. A resolution demanding that he Jftoe. owing to his connection with the life insurance scandals, will be in troduced on the first day of the ap proaching session of the New York, legislature. If no one else offers it, Senator Brackett of Saratoga, who, more than any other man in the legis lature, contributed to bringing about the investigation of insurance compa nies, will present it. It is believed, however', that Senator Depew, responding to powerful influ ences of political and business char acter, will drap out of the senate be fore ho is asked to do so. It is said upon reliable authority that the Van derbilts will urge the senator to retire from pohtrcs and devote his time to the railroad business. Why He Should Quit. Senator Brackett, in making known today his determination to force the retirement of Senator Depew, said: "J have seen Mr. Depew's state ment thai he has no thought of resign* ing, his position as United States sen ator and knows of no, .reason, legal or emotional why he should do so. And yet I believe that Ife-will. It is im possible .to fight- th stars in -their courses," and the ^ogit-ojf present events is inexorable. With no wish to^ifepike at a man who is down, and so" pjtfetfully down as is Senator Depew, I bqfj.Sv that he" must and will resign, an*d* that very soon. The republican party .must purge itself from vai insurance' situation unsparing hand, must- do it so completenahwit ly that no oiie gaif dpubt the cleanness of the result when*reached.'' Bequeathed Premiums. The first witness! to appear before the insurance investigation committee today was William A. Butts, paymaster of the Mutual Reserve Life Insurance company of this city. Mr. Hughes, counsel for the committee, asked him for an ac count of the payments made by the com pany to Mrs. Harper^heir of the estate of former President Edward B. Harper, as commissioWs on premiums which Mr. Harper bequeathed to his estate and to be paid after his death. The witness was temporarily excused and J. M. Hy land, bookkeeper of the Mutual Beserye, was called -and identified entries in the books of the company showing pay ments of..$6001 each-to Mr?.. Harper in 1895 and 1896.- Some of them were checked with: the' initials.rof Frederick M. Burnham, president pf ,-the Mutual BeservecompaSJ^i,, $**. Hyland sai^Map* Saipe is nowtMrs. Orlando P.

Wit ness did not knowa that any money in the Harper accouni was paid to Presi dent F. A. Burnham. ?8,000 to Burnham. William A. Butts, the paymaster, then went on the stand. He said he gave $8,000 to President F. A. Burn ham from the contingent fund in 1896. Witness did not- know what the presi dent did- with the money. George D. Eldredge, vice president of the Mutual Reserve company, was called and asked if he had not pre viously testified tb.at the total amount paid to Mrs. Harper was $48,609 and to the Harper family $35,000. The witness said he did not intend to have given such testimony. He was asked why he had not opposed such payments as having been made under an illegal contract, as the company had once con tended in a suit brought by one of the heirs. He said he understood the courts decided it was legal in the pre vious suit. Mr. Hughes said the point was never adjudicated, as the compa ays answer alleging illegality was withdrawn. Witness said he did not know why the $8,000 was paid to Presi dent Burnham. Beating the Policyholder. A small insurance company, the Se curity Mutual Life association of Bing. hamton, N. Y., was investigated yos terday by the Armstrong committee and it developed that the game of beat ing the Dolicyholders out of their money which had been played on such a magnificent scale in th6 great insur ance corporations, is not unknown to the officers of the smaller concern. It was shown: That the Binghamton company was started on the proverbial "shoestring*' 1886 for a number of years its of ficers worked faithfully and industri ously to build it up, and in 1893, when it had been fairly launched upon a prosperous career, the officers devised a peculiar scheme to get a good share of the prosperity. Milked the Life Company. It being purely a mutual company, with every dollar in its treasury^ sup posedly belonging to the policyholders, the men in control formed the Agency & Investment company, a stock corpor ation, which has since very successfully "milked" the insurance company. The Agency and Investment compa ny guaranteed to make' good any deficit in the funds of the Life company, and) for this the Life company made a con tract by which it was agreed perpetu ally to pay the Agency company per cent annually on ail premiums. The Agency company did hot collect these premiums and did nothing whatever except to pay nominally the salary of the president of the Life company.. Twelve per Cent Dividends. This 5 per cent arrangement threat ened to throw over such considerable sums of the policyholders' money, to the Agency company that it was deemed best to modify the contract. The new contract requires the Life com pany to pay annually to the Agency company a sum sufficient to enable the latter to nay 1% per cent dividends yearly 1ro the owners of its stock. All of the officers of the Life com pany own stock in the Agency company, which is capitalized at $175,000. The 12 per cent dividends deprive the poli cyholders of $19,000 yearly. "&?*?$ Politicians and Pulls. In addition to the officers of the life company, the stockholders in the agency company al number of up-state grtitjcians.include O&oi tbese.is George W. upn, former chairman ot the. republi can state committee altti now state rail- road commissioner. He owns $6,006' of the agency company's stock. Tho the fact was not brought out at the hearing, it was said the life com pany was allowed to (io business without depositing the usual $200,000 with the state insurance department. To ac complish this it is declared the politic ians behind the company had a bill put thru the legislature, which exempted this company from that requirement of the law. Paid to State Clerk. President Charles M. Turner of the Security Mutual was recalled today. In the course of his testimony he said that his company had paid $1,000 a year to D. H. Keef er, a clerk in the New York state insurance department, to perform some duties as actuary of the Security Mutual. "It did not occur to" me, said Mr. Turner, "that this conflicted with Mr. Keefer's duties to the insur ance departments' WITTE POWERLESS SAKHAROFF SLAIN Continued From First Page. ing, but they left everything .behind and now are almost reduced to Deggary.
