f I I SAN SEBASTIAN, Spain, July 29.
At the conclusion of a conference this
evening between King Alfonso and Pre
mier Canalcjas, it was announced that
Marquis Eraliio de Ojcda, Spanish cm
baasador to the Vatican, had been re
called. At the same lime the opinion kwas ex
pressed that rupture -with the Vatican
was inevitable. Senor Canalcjas told the
. . king that the government could not ae
i, jf ccpt tho conditions of the Vatican's last
note and that the Vatican could be so
' Premier Canalcjas will continue his
$ anti-clerical programme, counting on the
support of King Alfonso.
r The order to Marquis de Ojcda to leave
i Ills post signifies that the rupture which
Senor Canalcjas designated as inevitable
is now an accomplished fact.
i Embassador Willing.
Jr Marquis de Ojcda himself, In addition
s to pleading illness, has been insisting on
l- ills return on tho ground that the posl-
tlon at Rome no longer was tenable and
that ho considered a rupture between
the Vatican and the government immi-
)' Premier Canalcjas, referring to the
Vatican's note, which declared that un-
? less the decree of June 11 permitting
t' non-Catholic societies to display the in-
slgnia of public worship was withdrawn,
negotiations looking to the revision of
the concordat would be discontinued,
f v' said tho government would tolerate no
'f; imposition.
r Spain's recalling ISmbassador de Ojcda,
it is expected, will be followed by the
, departure from Madrid of Monslgnor
St Vlco. tho papal nuncio, when the rupture
will be complete.
r Senor Canalcjas is preparing for a sti-
j preme battle. In addressing a liberal
organization, ho declared that Spain was
r struggling for liberty of conscience.
"Poor Spain," he said, "if we succumb.
It will be dead enough. The government
which possesses' the confidence of tho
Icing, will save Spain despite all and
against all. The struggle we wage is
not anti-religious, but anti-elerlcal. "We
count upon the army, majority in parlia
ment and reason."
Jm- MADRID, July 29. Ominous reports
Sc are received following tho publication of
'n the news that a rupture between tho
, K Spanish government and the Vatican Is
HE imminent.
igsP; At San Sebastian, Don Jaime, tho prc-
1S, tender, has issued a manifesto in which
iffc'' he says he will lead the CarllstH in tho
fm'. battle which he intimates may be corn-
fm ing soon.
8;' ; It is expected that Prcrnior Canalcjas
WW will ask King Alfonso to. set the stamp
of approval on the course that the pro
CTffi mler has adopted.
Br The Vatican haa declared that the nc-
WmL gotlatlons looking to a revision of the
.concordat cannot be coatlnuod until tho
p "imperial decree permitting non-Catliolic

k his plan for religious reforms.
Ku- The general situation is complicated
F-1 by the unrest among the miners in the
Jfy Catalonlan provinces and tho occasional
clashes between tho Catholic and non-mr-
Catholic elements throughout the country.

Conservation Bills Introduced
at Last Session of Congress
to he Opposed.
I "Taft-Wickersham-Nelson" Pol
icies Sure to Precipitate
a Bitter Fight.
DENVER, July 29 CharginE that
the conservation bills known as sen
ate bills numbers GiSi and 34SG to
5492, inclusive introduced at tho last
session of congress, will, il! adopted,
seriously retard western mining develop
ment, and add to tho "already heavy
burden ' of mining men, western mining
men are planning a. strenuous light
agam6t theso measures at tho annual
session of tho American Mining con
gress, to bo hold in Los Angeles, begin
ning September 2(j. The official cull
I for this meeting was issued at the Den
ver headquarters toda', and 3000 dele
gates are expected to attend, represent
ing the important mining centers of tho
United States and Canada, Mexico and
Big Fight Coming.
It was announced at the headquar
ters of the mining congress today that
the conservation policy would receive
a big share of tho attention of the con
gress, and an endeavor would be made
to learn the true attitude of tho west
on this question. A bittor fight is ex
pected to result, as for weeks sentiment
among thp mining men has been actively
forming in opposition to what aro
termed the "Taft-Wickersham-Nelson"
policies concerning the development of
water powers and disposition of mineral
lands. r
Tho leaders expected to speak against
tho measures are Sonators Borah and
Heyburn of Idaho, Senators Perkins of
California and Congressman Bartlett of
The most energetic advocates of tho
Roosevelt conservation policy, including
Gifford Pinchot, James It. Garfield,
Former Governor Pardee of California,
and others are also expoctcd to ad
dress tho delegates.
Roosevelt May Bo There.
Jt is thought not unlikely that Mr.
Roosevelt himself nmy 3ricJd to tho
pressure that is .being exerted through
out the western states to accept the
invitation to be present and defend
the policy which is causing widespread
dissatisfaction, it is asserted, among
all mining interests.
"There is no doubt that tho mortal
blow at tho prime industry of tho west
that is contained in tho conservation
bills will be emphatically resented at"
tho Los Angeles moeting," said a promi
nent official of the mining congress this
"These bills provide in effect that
the remaining coal lands shall bo leased
by the federal government, a part only
of the proceeds to be paid t'o the states;
and that tho development of water
power shall bo controlled by the gen
eral government. Added to the bur
dens already plnced upon mining by the
forest service, tho regulations concern
ing tho location and patenting of claims,
and tho use of timber, otc, tho policy
of taking tho remaining resources from
tho control of the states constitutes so
radical a departure from the system
under which western development has
already gone forward, that it will ro
tard all western development, and min
ing, as tho principal western industry,
will suffer most heavily."
Much Work Ahead.
According to tho programme of the
congress three Denver men, General Irv
ing Halo, Herbert S. Sands and Charles
A. Chase, will give the report of a com
mittee which is investigating the stan
dardization of electrical equipment in
metal mining. Colonel A. G. Brownleo
of Idaho Springs will address tho con
vention as the representative of a com-,
mitlec which is investigating the effect
of the national forest service regula
tions upon mining in Colorado.
t James F Callbreath of Donvcr, na
tional secretary of tho American Min
ing congress, is now in Los Angeles pre
paring for the mooting.
MISSOULA, .Mont., July 29. Al
though a local high wind prevailed most
of the night, the forest tiro conditions
in this territory continued to improve
today. Forester Greeley of tho local
headquarters of district No. 1 says that
with a few exceptions the many Jires in
the territory being supervised in his
dislrict are under control, although still
Supervisor Kinncar from Seeloy Lake,
in the Montana Clearwater country, re
ports the big fire there, which burned
over an area two and one-half miles
square, is well subdued and lie believed
under perfect control. This lire, ho
states, was starlod by ranchers burning
stumps. A new fire on Harvey creek, in
the Missoula forest, is reported today,
but its extent is as yet unknown.
Supervisor While of tho Bitter Root
forest spent the night hero and re
ported everything in his district bettor
and fires well under control, sonic en
tirely extinguished.
The lire burning in the T3ig Black
foot company's timber that startod near
Clinton has eaten its way through the
trees to McNamara's lauding on the
Black foot river and a big crew of men
is still fighting its advance.
A small new fire was also reported
six miles east of Ovando but it is being
successfully looked after by ranchers.

Former Chief Forester May Be
Candidate for Governor
of New York.
Former President Does Not
Commit Himself as to Stand
He May Take.
NEW YORK, July 29. Gifford Pinchot,
former chief forester under Theodoro
Roosevelt, took place today upon the list
of possible candidates for the Republi
can nomination for governor of New York,
and Tliqodorc Roosevelt was oaked to
support his candidacy.
While tho ex-president lias not said t
anything that In any way resembled an '
outspoken declaration in favor of any
candidate, it is believed that he does
not look unkindly upon the boom.
Dr. Sumuol aicCuno Llndsey, former
commissioner of education of Porto Rico,
and now a professor of Columbia univer
sity, is the man who launched the now
boom. He had u long and confidential ,
talk today with Colonel Roosevelt and (
left with tho air of a man well pleased ,
with the turn things had taken.
Always a New Yorker.
Dr. Llndsey explained that, although
Mr. Pinchot had often been absent from ,
New York In recent years, he lias ul- .
ways retained his legal residence In this .
city and regularly voted hero. The fact .
that ho was talked of at ono time as .
a poswlble candidate for governor of .
Pennsylvania was baaed, said Dr. Lind- .
sev, on tho false Idea that Mr. Pinehot's
legal residence was at Milford, Pa,, whero
ho has a country place.
Dr. Llndsey Is a close friend of both
Colonel Roosevelt and Mr. Pinchot. Tn
common with other friends, lie hits been
working quietly on tho Pinchot boom
for some time and first suggested to Mr.
Pinchot himself tho possibility that he
might run. No dcllnite answer, ho said,
was returned.
Colonel Roosevelt was told today that,
in tho opinion of Mr, Pinehot's friends, .
ho could draw support from the same .
sources which hud given power to Gov-
ernor Hughes in past campaigns.
Mr. Pinchot is represented as in aym- .
pathy with the general trend of tho -Hughes
progressive policy. .
Arguments Advanced.
Mr. Pinchot is now on his way east
and on his return will have another con
ference with his old chief. Dr. Llnd
sey will tell him then that .is govornor
of this stato he could continue tho work
of conservation with which ills name has
become associated with in national poli
cies. It will be represented there Is a
largtt Held for work which the federal
government cannot, undertake, but which
the govornor of New York as a- mem
ber of tho house of governors could for
ward with commanding presence.
Dr. Llndsey dcllned Gifford Pinchot as
an insurgent with a difference.
"Mr. Pinchot," ho said, "Is an Insur
gent so far as conservation goes and
presumably his sympathies Ho with the
insurgents on other questions; but ho
cannot be classed .a:; a full Hedged in
surgent. He Is n progressive-
"The personal relations between Presi
dent Taft and Mr. Pinchot have always
been pleasant and they were not Inter
rupted by their differences over the con
duct of tho interior department. Wo
who favor his candidacy do not consldur
that Ida nomination could bo taken as
an affront to the national administra
tion." Among other callors at. the colonel a
editorial offices toduv were Senator Bov
crldge of Indiana, Charles P. Nolll. fed
eral commissioner of labor, and Marcel
Vernel of Paris, a member of tho legion
of honor.

WASHINGTON7, July 1'9. "More than
ono avenuo to the monopolistic grabbing
of the people's property has been closed,
but much still remains to be done," de
clares Gifford Pinchot, tho former fores
ter and no.w president of tho National
Conservation association. In a bulletin
addressed to the members of the. associa
tion today, summarizing the progress of
conservation measures in the last session
of congress,
"In spite of all opposition," the former
forester assorts, "the principles for
which we stand have been enacted Into
law In a considerable number of cases,
and are represented In many bills still
awaiting 11011011."
Criticising the Interior department in
regard to the development of water pow
er. Mr. Pinchot said:
"It is unfortunate that tho interior de
partment haa absolutely refused to up
prove rights-of-way for municipal water
supply. Irrigation and water power wher
ever tho hinds affected are believed to
be valuable for water 'power. This policy
Una continued for a your. It amounts to
the absolute stopping of water power
development throughout 1 lie arid west
and has done much to create totally false
conceptions of conservation in that re
gion. Tho forest service has wlsoly re
jected the proposals of tho Interior de
partment looking to the ealnbllshiiH'nt of
tho same jooilci' in nutlouul forests."
Envin Wider, Cashier of Broken
Russo-CIiincse Bank Found
in Kcstaurant.
Is Committed to Tombs; Will
Plead Guilty, Declares
His Attorney.
NEW YORK, July 20. A frail little
man with grey eyes and hollow checks,
in whoso manner and prcsenco there was
nothing to suggest that single-handed he
had coollv lifted more than S500.000 in
bonds and stocks from the strong box of
a bank, was arrested today In a down
town restaurant, not five minutes' walk
from the bank he had robbed. He was
Erwin Wider, the missing cashier of the
Russo-Chinesc bank. In the court of
general sessions his lawyer, Leon Gins
berg, said ho would plead guilty, and lie
was committed to tho Toombs in dofault
of 25,000 bail. Ginsberg, vainly pleading
with Judge .Foster to reduce the ball,
declared Wider had not a cent of the
money left,
"It was all swallowed up in AVall
street," he said.
Almost as Wider was arrested tho
grand jury handed up an Indictment
against him, charging spociflcally that
he stole three certificates, ono of fifty
shares and two othors of twenty-five
shares each of Baltimore and Ohio stock,
and that ho disposed of them through
tho brokerage houso of Dick Brothors
on May 2:2 last.
May Be Others.
At least throo other oftlcors of the
bank had access to tho safely deposit
box in which the bank's securities were
kept, and the box Itself was brought
daily to tho offices of tho bank, where
It. was kept In business hours. Brokers
with whom Wider traded havo said ho
called up from the bank to givo them
orders over tho telephone.
Tho arrest today was due to tho per
sistence with which detectives trailed
Wldor's wife. She was in consultation
last night with Mrs. Ginsberg, whose
husband, besides being Wider's lawyer,
was also his neighbor.
And thence she waB traced today to
the restaurant whero her own husband
was arrested.
CINCINNATI, O., July 29. Admitting
that sho required her husband to pledge
a money consideration to bind their mur
rlage, tho former Baroness von Kllfuss
occupied the greater part of the day to
day on the witness stand, sho having fol
lowed her husband. Percy Proctor, who
Is suing to enjoin the transfer of $10,000
worth of securities made over to tho
baroness. The baroness declared vehem
ently that she still loves Mr. Proctor and
that the money consideration was only an
Incident to the marriage.
During the recess of tho court this
afternoon Mr. Proctor and his wife were
In conference for more than an hour,
tills being tho tlrst time thoy have talked
together for six months. L,awrence Max
wull, Jr.. counsel for Proctor, was pres
ent, at the Interview and later Mr. and
Airs. Proctor came Into tho courtroom
smiling. If overtures for a compromise
in the pending litigation were made only
thoso three know of It. and they refused
to comment on the subject.
The trial was not concluded today.
Long Balloon Voyage.
MARION. O.. July 29. The balloon
Drifter, which made an ascont from Ham

miles west of tills city this morning at 0
o'clock, having llrst drifted south, then
circled about .Hamilton, then north to
Bcllefontainc, thonco back to Colum
bus, and again north to Marlon. The
hluhest altitude attained was S000 feet.
The pilots were Walter C. Collins and
G. 11. Howard. Jean Arent was a pas

Commander of the Boat Sends

FATTIER POINT, Que., July 29. The
man. who holds tho key to tho Crippen
casc, Inspector Dew, of Scotland Yard,
arrived today on tho steamship Lauron
tlc from J-ondon and Is waiting hero to
unlock tho secret the steamship Mont
roso will bring to Father Point on Bun
day. Dow Is tho English officer who
made an examination of Dr. Hawlcy II.
Crlppen's home in London f ter the dis
appearance of tho doctor's actress wifo,
Belle Elmore. He had an appointment
to meet Crippen later, but before the
date arrived the collar of the Crippen
houso unearthed the mutilated remains
of a woman, and Dr. Crippen was a
Depends on One Man.
Inspector Dow probably Is the only
man In America tonight qualified to say
with cortalnty whether the two suspects
who sailed on tho Canadian Pacific lin
er Montrose from Antwerp on July 20
under the name of John Robinson and
John Robinson, Jr.. are Dr. Crippen and
his typist, Ethel Claire Leneve. He will
board the Montrose when she stops hero
to take her river pilot, seek out the two
persons on board whom Captain Kendall
believes are Crippen and Miss Leneve,
and If ho clinches the captain's suspi
cions, the so-called "Robinson" will be
arrested by the Canadian polico offlcors
who are waiting here with warrants,
charging Crippen with tho murder of an
unknown woman. Ills companion will
be held as an accessory.
Chief McCarthy of tho Quebec police,
who mot Dew here today, says he is con
fident the suspicions of tho Montrose's
skipper will prove correct.
The wireless station here resounded all
day with messages between tho Ca
nadian .authorities, the Scotland Yard In
spector and tho captain of the Montrose.
Plenty of Formality.
An Immense amount of red tape had
to bo unrolled before the London detec
tive could bo landed hero from tho
Father Point has no quarantine and 710
customs Inspector, but Captain Jean
Baptlste Belangcr of the tug which puts
tho pilots aboard on Incoming liners re
ceived orders from Ottawa aithorizing
him to tako Dew off.
When the pilot left here at 3:30 o'clock
sho carried two physicians especially au
thorized to Inspect 'the Laurentic.
Tho long expected dotectlvo proved to
bo a largo florid-faced man wearing a
long green ulster, a black derby and an
air of impenetrable reserve. He Im
mediately dodged behind the Canadian
polico officers and declined to discuss
the case.
"I am sworn to secrecy." he said.
"I cannot answer any of your ques
tions." The fact that .Dew .sought out Chief
McCarthy here seems to indicate that
tho provlnicial officers and not tho do
minion authorities will arrest Crippen if
ho Is aboard the Montrose.
Will Land Sunday.
The Montrose will enter the mouth of
the SL Lawrence tomorrow and should
arrive here Sunday afternoon. Sho Is
due at Quobcc early Monday morning.
Inspector Dew and Chief McCarthy vis
ited the local wireless station tonight
to moke sure that the restrictions placod
by the government upon Avlrcless com
munication with the Montrose will be
regarded. Tho police say tho couple
aboard tho vessel do not yet know they
are under suspicion and every precau
tion Is being taken to prevent their get
ting wind of tho preparations to re
ceive them.
No private messages to the Montrose
arc recolved here, and it Is said the
captain of the vessel exercises supervi
sion over everything received. The po
lice fear that if any of the passengers
hear of tho suspicion regarding tho al
leged Crippen the latter may learn and
tho task of identifying and arresting
him on Sundav will be made moro dif
ficult. By a complete surprise, In
spector Dew and the Canadian polico
hope to break down the self-possession
of the man and perhaps obtain a con
fession before they reach Quebec.
Avoiding Publicity.
Inspector Dew's disinclination to dis
cuss tho caso and his aversion to re
porters Is almost humorous. ITe even
threatens to bar thorn from boarding the
Montroso. But he promised tonight to
make known his plans Just as soon as
he deemed It advisable.
"I have been worried awfully by re
porters." ho said. Ho was greatly em
barrassed when photographers tried to
take snap shots and became panicky
when tho crowd on the pilot boat sent
up "Three cheers for Dew!"
Frederick M. Ryder. United States con
sul at Rimouski, arrived here today and
conferred with unicr jucunrury iov m

In the event the man thought to bo Dr.

tection as an American. The consul will
be notified immediately If any arrest is

The state department ut Washington
has given Mr. Ryder no Instructions.
It was reported tonlcht. that Inspector
Dew had boon In wireless touch with
Captain Kendall of tho Montrose while
the two vessels wero approaching Cana
dian shores. Whllo It Is Impossible to
obtain the text of tho messages ex
changed. It Is assorted that positive Iden
tification of the couple was established
to Dew's satisfaction. This has not been
confirmed by the inspector.
The mar. suspected of being Crippen Is
said to bo showing slims of nervousness,
hut no cue on board lias been permitted

of Cnutain Kendall, ills officers and tho
wireless operator.
Tho government has apnronrlatcd all
tho wireless service and It is imnossi

MONTREAL, July 29. The Montreal

President Cancels Nearly All I
Engagements for Proposed H
Autumn Trip. H
Will Rely Upon Junior Massa- H
chusetts Senator for Knowl- H
edge of Conditions. H
BEVERLY, Mass.. July 29. Senator jH
Wlnthrop Murray Crane of Massachu- IH
setts, who occupies In the senate a posi
tlon similar to that of the Republican
"whip" in tho house, was summoned to
Beverly today by President Taft. and had jH
a long talk with the chief magistrate.
Senator Crane was asked by the prcsl
dent to mako a trip through tho west in
the near future, going oa far a3 Seattle.
He will inquire into political conditions. IH
Tho president Is said to desire this Jnfor- IH
matlon first hand. Tie has the utmost IH
confidence in Senator Crane's political
Quick and Effective.
The senator is noted for the quiel
manner In which he accomplishes tho tim
most difficult tasks. In the last session
of congress Mr. Taft relied absolutely
upon the junior senator from Massachu
setts and often made him the means of
communicating the administration's
views to the upper branch of congress.
In selecting an emissary to tho west, the
president naturally turned to Senator
Crane. The senator already lias made a
few quiet trips of observation, and dls- H
cussed what ho had learned with the "1
president today. 1 H
The senator's visit was surrounded
with the greatest secrecy. Not until tho
senator was seen was it admitted at the, jH
executive offices that he had been any
where In tho vicinity of tho president's ,
cottage. It was denied that Mf. Crane's iH
visit to the president hail anything to do
with the Ballingor-Pinchot controversy .H
It is stated with authority that tho presi- 'H
dent never has considered and never will
consider asking Secretary Balllnger to re- IH
tire from the cabinet. IH
Cancels Engagements. IH
Another significant move made by tha IH
president today and of almost equal I111
portancc with the proposed mission of
Senator Crane, was the announcement
that Mr. Taft has canceled all of the en
gagements, tentative and otherwise, that IH
he had made in different parts of the I
country for this fall. Important affairs
of the administration, it was said, would
keep the president busily engaged at
Beverly and Washington until .November.
In November, It was announced, the
president will mako a three-weeks trip
to the Isthmus of Panama to observe the
progress of the work on the big canal.
Whether the cancellation of the mimer
ous engagements for the fall means a re- ;
vcrsal of the president's travel policy or 1
not could not be learned. Political con- I IH
sideratiou may have had a great deal 1
to do with the president's decision. It
would be difficult for the president to v
travel through the doubtful slates in )
September and October without being K
drawn into the campaign or at least hav- f B
lug his speeches construed Into political 1
utterances. In a speech at Rockland, H
Me., the other day, Mr. Taft said ho did f
not believe a president of the United 1
States had a right to talk politics.
Possible Exceptions. f jH
In the list of wholesale cancellations J
announced today there were three omls- , jH
slons. The president will go to Province- f H
town, Mass., on August 5, to review the ; ll
Atlantic battleship tlect and to speak at JH
the dedication of the pilgrims' monument. jH
He has left open tho question of whether ' H
or not he will speak at the National Con- H
servation congress, which meets in St. ' VmmA
Paul, September 5-7. and ut the unveiling ll
of the Reed monument at Portland. Me.. ;
on August 11. The chances are that the '
president will go to St. Paul. jH
Whether Mr. Taft will leave for Pana- jl
ma before or after election day, Novem- H
ber S, has not been decided. The chances . B
arc that he will leave immediately after.
He probably will sail from Norfolk on one 1 'H
of the armored crulsors or battleships of H
the Atlantic fleet.
Among the engagements officially can-
ecled today was tho Transmlsslssippl H
congress. San Antonio, Tex.. Novem- H
