Arrested at Hotel
At the Hotel Emerson last night, lifting

friends in the lobby of the hostelr) , where
he has lived for several weeks, Kurtz, or
Short, was approached by Detective Por

man In the countrj
"Hello. Short," said Porter "We want
Sou at police headquarters. We have a
little matter to talk over with sou."
Short was told that a warrant bad been
sworn out by Mrs. French for his arrest.
' It s not so. it's a big mistake." replied
Short, as he was led from the hotel to
police headquarters. "Mrs. French doesn t
under stand, some one has 'butted in.' "
The romance which has cost Short his
incarceration, for the time being at least,
started in Kansas City, Mo, eleven
months ago. when Mrs. French became In
fatuated with Short
Husband Leaiei Fortune.
Mrs French s husband, who died about
a v ear ago. left her a fortune estimated at
about 120,000, which Mrs. French alleges
she has been sttlndk-d out of The sys

on the promise that he would pay her
dividends on her 'investment at the

then 'borrowed' $1,000 of this money

this allegation that Short obtained the
money b) false pretenses, that the war

Mrs French, when seen last night at
the Dewey, declared that she had every
confidence in Short's integrity, and she
still believes that if he is left alone
he w ill ' make good "
' I have known Mr Short since my
husband s death, in Kansas City, about
a year ago," said Mrs French, "I was
introduced to him by mutual friends
and shortly after our first meeting Mr
Short suggested to me. that I being a
widow and apparentls not very strong,
that he would like to show me how I
could make soma eass money. I listened
to his stor and even went as far as to
consult friends about the scheme. I
was advisced that it would be all right,
and I went ahead Mr Short took me
to his lawyer's office and here he had
the papers drawn up
"I admit that Mr Short has been one
of the most gentlemanly fellows I have
ever known, and I am loath to believe
that he really meant to cheat mc and I
believe now that If he Is given a chance
he will pay me back everydollar

Democratic leaders admit that a fac

much trouble among the Democratic
national .leaders has been emphasized
since the arrival in Washington of
Speaker Champ Clark and William J.
llryan. Mr. Bryan has made It plain to
his followers that it Is his purpose- to
take an Interest In the legislative pro
gramme, and to make certain, so far as
It possible for him to do so, that the
parti lives up to the pledces of the Bal
timore platform. On the other hand,
friends of Speaker Clark and Leader Un
derwood have caused It to be made
known that the Democratic party in the
House Is competent to manage Its own
affairs without the assistance or advice
of Mr. Br) an.
Democratic leaders hae felt in their
bones ever since the election of Got
Wilson that Mr Br) an would follow a
course that would practically compel the
new President to take sides either with
or against 4hc Nebraskan. In the nature
of things President Wilson will be forced
to do business with Speaker Clark and
leader Underwood in all matters of leg

approval of Mr Br) an it Is known that

Chief Ex&cutlYS . Favors M
t Presidential Term of
Six Years,
New York. Nov. 18. In one of the
snappiest and wltUest speeches he has
made since he was elected President of
the United States. President Taft to
night gave the members of the Lotus
Club an inside view of what he thought
of the Presidency and told them of a
number of changes which he thought
ought to be made In some of them he
agreed with Gov Wilson in others he
was diametrically opposite.
The President advocated strongly a
single term of six years for the Chief
Executive of the Unltsd States, saying
that this was ample time for him to do
all the good possible and not cnougto
for him to become harmful to the coun
try The giving to Cabinet officers of
seats ln the Senate and House, a move
advocated by William Jennings Bryan,
within the last week, was another step
which the President favored
"I don't care how unambitious or
modest a President Is, said Mr Taft
"I don't care how determined he Is
that he himself will not obtain his re-
nomination (and there are very few In
deed who go to that extent), still his
subordinates equall) Interested with
him In his re-election wllL whenever
they have the opportunity, exert their

their chiefs renomlnatlon and re-elec

administration from losing a part of Its
effectiveness for the public good by this
diversion to political effort for at least
year of the four of each administra
tion Were this made impossible "by
law, I can see no reason why the en
ergy ot the President and that of all
his subordinates might not be directed
rather to making a great record of ef
ficiency in the first and only term than
ln seeking a second term for that pur
pose. Tour years is rather a short time In
which to work out great governmental
policies. Six )eara Is better

to bringing more closely together the
operation of the executive and legislative
branches. It would not add any more

treaties on the other hand I would not

giving to each department head a seat
in the Senate and In the Houe and a
right to enter into the discussion of the

Congress much better Informed as to the
actual conditions In the executive de

their knowledge of their own depart
ment, and their ablllt) to answer appro

would necessitate the appointment to the
Cabinet of men used to debate and to de
fend their positions, and It would offer an
opportunity for the public to Judge of
the Executive and his government much
more Justly and much more quickly than
under our present system The ignorance
that Congress at times has of what act

perhaps promote the amenities between
the two branches if this system were in

In the course of his speech President
Taft declared that the Presidency Is far
from being an easy post to fill, but that
he considered that the man who held It
was well compensated "The PresI
dency, laughed Mr Taft, ' is not i
peace to bo enjo) ed b) a sensitive man '
Referring to the results of the elec
tion the President said I beg )ou to
believe that ln spite of the ver) em

office. I cherish only the deepest grati

given me the honor of having held of
fice, and I sincerely hope. In looking
back over what has been done, that
there Is enough" of progrers made to
warrant me ln the belief that real good
has been accomplished, even though I
regret that it has not been greater My
chief regret Is my failure to obtain from
