HARRIMAN HAS COAL IDEA.
If Navy Can Carry It In Foreign Bot
toms. Why Not HeP
' NEW YORK. July 10.?The Southern Pa
?lflc railroad, which owns the Morgan lin
of steamships, entertained a lot of dlstlr.
gulshed persons yesterday aboard the twin
crew turbine steamship Creole, the flrs
ocean-going vessel of her type designed an
built exclusively In America. There was n
Bpeech-maklng. but there was some convei
atlon between the great men of the rail
road company, including E. H. Harrimar
and Its guests.
Mr. Harrtman himself spent lesa than a
hour breaking bread and drinking miners
naici. us um iiyi Brt/ iwiyliung perSOnail
to the reporters, but through his represents
tlve, J. W. Jungen, manager of the opei
atlng department of the Southern Pacific"
Otlantlc coast lines, he uttered this sent
ment:'
"The bars are down. If the United State
government has a right to charter forelg
bottoms to carry coal to the Pacific coa:
there Is no reason why the Southern Paelfl
should not do likewise. I am going to sen
coal to San Francisco In foreign bottoms."
Rear Admiral Bowles, retired, who Is coi
ucticu wiiti tii*r nic mvcr Lum^my, e]
pressed the opinion that Mr. llarrima
would not be permitted to do the thing I
contemplated because of the laws of ti
United Statws. Other persons not In an
manner Interested In ships or Jhlpbulldir
called attention to section 4;(47, title L. (
the Revised Statutes of the United State
which says:
"No merchandise shall ne Imported (oo:
rected to "transported" b> a bracket In tf
text), under penalty of forfeiture thereo
fmm nni> riort nf tli?? I'nlt.J ,,,
other port of the United States In a vess
belonging wholly or in part to a subject <
any foreign power."
Under this law Mr Harrlman's coal ca
goes might he gobbled up by Uncle Sa
and used to propel Uncle Sam's warships.
Mr. Harrtman seemed to have the impre
eion. according to his Interpreters, that tl
Navy Department was breaking the lav
of the United States In chartering foreij
vessels to carry coal from this coast to S:t
Francisco, In which case It would posslb
forfeit Its coal to the government at a poii
at which It would be convenient for tl
navy to get It from the government.
Another report of the talk of Mr. Hari
man hail It that he said that he "did m
ee why" tne Southern Pacific should n
compete with the government and can
coa! in foreign bottoms.

BIRTH OF SELF-GOVERNMENT
Place Where the First Written Constitution
of the World Was Conceived
and Adopted.
BY WILLI4V E. CURTIS.
Special Correspondence of The Star uni] tbe Chicago
Record -II era Id.
HARTFORD, Conn.. Ju!y 5, 1007.
Last month the Society of Colonial Wars
of Connecticut unveiled a monument which
marks the site of the famous charter oak,
which is as much to the history of Hartford
as Shakespeare to Stratford-on-Avon,
Hamlet to. Copenhagen, Joan of Arc to
Rouen, King Alfred to Winchester and Romeo
and Juliet to the ancient city of the
Capulets. The first child you meet on tho
street can tell you about It, although there
Is a good deal of mystery about It and several
versions of the ancient story.
The monument is a corpulent column
placed Inside an Iron fence that protects an
angle of lawn between two roads?Charter
Oak avenue and Charter Oak place. A globe
rests upon the backs of four dolphins, the
slgnllicance of which I could not understand,
but beneath It Is a bank of oak
leaves encircling the granite monolith which
is very much plainer In its appropriateness.
The inscription reads:

: The tree fell t

The orglnal oak was seven feet in diameter,
and It blew down In a storm. A
considerable quantity of the timber is preserved.
Thero are as manv relics of the
charter oak here and hereabouts as there
are articles of furniture from the Mayflower
at Plymouth and scattered among
the descendants of the Pilgrims.
Mark Twain, who is a citizen of Hartford,
twice removed, and ought to know, says
that the bridge across tbe Connecticut
river between the two halves of the city Is
built of timber from the charter oak. A
section of the trunk Is preserved by the
Connecticut Historical Society, and at the
capltol visitors are shown a beautifully
carved chair which Is occupied by the lieutenant
governor when he presides over the
senate upon occasions of ceremony. Many
of the older families of ,Hartford have
tahtfto onH Hpsltq lihrnrv rjlSM. hnokshelves
chairs, picture frames and various other
furniture and appurtenances made from
the historic tree, llnd at least a car'.oad of
walking sticks have been distributed among
the patriotic people since it blew down.
In 1847 a child of the old oak was planted.
a seedling, which has now grown Into
a beautiful, stately tree, and, next to the
state house. Is the most Imposing object
In Hartford.
Birthplace of Self-Government.
If you care to know It, and It Is worth
knowing, the people of Connecticut, under
the leadership of the Rev. Thomas Hooker,
pastor of the Central Congregational
Church of Hartford, which ia still doing
business, and attended by his descendants,
established the first system of self-government
ever organized by human beings. Eminent
historical writers give Hartford the
unique reputation of being the place ^here
the first written constitution of the world,
"A permanent limitation on governmental
power," as Johnston, the historian, expresses
It, was conceived and brought
forth.
un me mn or januarj, luau, iutr iieemeii
of Hartford, Windsor and Wethersfield assembled
here and drew up a constitution
consisting of eleven articles, which they
called "the fundamental orders of Connecticut,"
and under it the colony lived for
nearly two centuries. King Charles II approved
and recognized it, and granted a
charter which was simply a royal recognition
of the government actually In operation.
The 'fundamental orders" represented
pure democracy and representative selfgovernment,
with universal suffrage. The
qualification of church membership for voting,
which was required In Massachusetts,
was omitted.
This constitution was inspired by the Rev.
Thomas Hooker, whose dust lies in the old
burying ground In the center of this city.
In June. 1035, he left Cambridge, Mass.,
with a party of about one hundred men,
women and children, with no guide but a
compass, no cover but the heavens, no food
but what they carried, and marched
through the wilderness to the banks of the
Connecticut river, where they selected a
site for a settlement which they called
New Town, and subsequently Hartford.
Parson Hooker was the soul of the movement.
as well as Its leader and spiritual
guide. The remainder of the party looked
Up to him the children of Israel looked
up to Moses for advice, Instruction and examole.
and he was considered Infallible
and omniscient. Three years later, when
the settlement had Increased In numbers
and other towns had been started, Windsor,
a few miles north, and Wethersfield, a few
miles south. It became necessary to organize.
Mr. Hooker, after consultation, preached
a sermon before the freemen of the
colony In which he outlined a plan of government.
It contains the earliest suggestion
in human experience of a government
of the people, for the people, by the people,
without royal permission, charter, concession
or authority of any kind from any
source. It recognized no higher power. It
provided for a legislature to be elected by
universal suffrage to frame the laws, and
for magistrates to execute them, and It
limited the authority and jurisdiction of
the executive, legislative and judicial
branches of the government. The laws en
acted by tne nrst jegisiaiure were not wnat
we would call liberal. They regulated the
daily lives and conduct of the pioplo to the
greatest detail In a most autocratic manner.
They were known as "the blue laws
of Connecticut."
The Charter Demanded.
For twenty-three years the people of the
colony were allowed to live in this little democracy
undisturbed. They grew and prospered
and were happy. They were contented
with the simple and frugal existence
that the wilderness permitted. They
feared God, dealt honestly with the Indians,
respected the king, and had little
concern with the troubles and tribulations
of the outside world. But soon after the
accession of James II In 1(185 the tranquillity
of the colony was rudely disturbed
by a summons from the Governor of Massachusetts
commanding the Governor and
Company of Connecticut to show by what
warrant they exercised their powers. The
colony made strong profession* of lotyaSty,
pleaded the charter granted them by the
king's royal brother and begged the continuance
of their privileges. Two writs of
quo warranto were Issued against them,
but the people elected Robert Tr?at as
governor and refused to surrender their
charter.
In the latter part of 1G86 Sir Edmund
Andros arMved In Boston bearing a royal
commission as Governor of New England.
After some correspondence with Gov.
Treat, who still stood firm, Sir Edmund
started for Hartford with a small troop of
horse. He was met with great courtesy
when he arivod October 81, 1087, and that
evening was conducted to the council
of that body and demanded the charter.
The document was brought out and laid
upon the table. In the midst of the debate
the lights were suddenly extinguished, and
when they were relighted the charter waa
missing. There was no clue to Its disappearance
or to the person who had carried
I It away. After the downfall ol Andros In
I 18S9 the document reappeared In the same
mysterious manner, and continued to be
the organic law of Connecticut during the
remainder of the colonial period.
History tells us, and it Is accepted &s the
truth, that the lights in the assembly
chamber were extinguished by pre-concerted
signal, and that one Capt. Wadsworth
of Hartford seized the charter, crept
through the door and secreted the document
in a large hollow tree in front of the
house of Samuel Wyllys. secretary of the
colony, whose descendants succeeded him
in that office generation after generation
for more than a hundred years. The old
nnir tn be venerated as sacred
until it fell in 1858.
Strange to say, there are two copies of
the charter, very nearly alike. One of
them occupies a handsome frame in a
steel-lined, fireproof case In the library at
the state capltol. The other is in the museum
of the Connecticut Historical Society,
in the Wadsworth Athenaeum, near the
center of the city. There Is no historical
or documentary evidence, however, to sustain
the accepted story, although there is
no question that the charter disappeared
at the time mentioned in the tradition, and
remained out of sight for years. But who
seized it, who hid it, or where it was hidden,
or how long it was concealed, or who took
it out of its hiding place and returned it
IU me Buvcrnur RHU?C.
Mr. Albert C. Bates, secretary of the
Connecticut Historical Society, who has
made a thorough study of this fascinating
and dramatic tradition, said in reply to my
inquiry the other day:
Story Based Wholly on Tradition.
"The charter oak story is based entirely
upon tradition. There Is no contemporary
record or correspondence or other writing
of the time in which It is alluded to, although
I have heard that there Is in existence
a diary 01 a resident of Hartford at
that period which has never been printed
and is known to only a few people." Mr.
Bates was rather mysterious In his allu
sions to thlB diary, and declined to give
any further information about It, but talked
in an interesting manner about other references
to tne Incident. ,
"The first printed statement concerning
the charter oak," he said, "appears in a
history of Connecticut printed in 1781 by
Samuel Peters of Hebron. He was a tory
during the revolution, and his fellow-townsmen
drove him out of the state. He went
to England and lived there the rest of his
life, spending a part of his time in writing
a history of the colony in which he tried
to get even with his neighbors for the treatment
he had received. He vllllfled the
siate ana everyooay in 11. ?e unya uiai
the charter was hldilen In a hollow elm, but
does not give the location.
"In 1787 Benjamin Trumbull published a
history In which he said that the charter
was hidden In an oak which stood on the
6ide of the street In front of the residence
of Mr. Wyllys, secretary ot the colony."
"Where was the building In which the
assembly met?" I asked.
"There Is a dispute about that," replied
Mr. Bates. "Some authorities claim that
the meeting- with Andros was In a tavern
on the main street which occupied the site
of the present Aetna Insurance building.
Others think It was In the upper story
mnAtlncr limico nn thn ni lhlin ennar^
\J 1 H1C ??ICUHl?e liwuuv, V..V. Fuu>.u UV,1.U.V.
There is no way of determining which was
the place, but the probabilities are In favor
of the meeting house.
"Much confusion has also been caused by
the fact that there were two copies of the
charter. There is not the slightest doubt
of that fact." said Mr. Bates. "One copy
Is In the library at the state house, and
the other Is In the Wadgworth Athenaeum,
preserved In the identical box In which It
was brought from England. The state
house copy was kept In England for a time
and brought over later. The records of the
clerk of the Hanaper In England show
that two copies were engrossed and sealed
and paid for. The clerk of the Hanaper
was a sort of custodian of the records. A
hanaper was a basket, the same as a hamper.
The cierK or me rous Kepi nis recoras in
baskets In those days; hence he was known
as the clerk of '.he hanaper. The amount
of the fees and the date on which they were
paid appear upon his records^
"The man who secured the charters was
John Winthrop. He waa gent over to get
them In 1601. He secured them In 16(12,
and sent one copy to Hartford In the fall
of that year by the hand of an agent of
the Massachusetts colony who was coming
home In advance of his return. That is
probably the copy that Is here In the Athenaeum,
and it was probably brought in
that same box. In 16.S6 William Whitney,
an agent of the colony, who was going to
Kneland nn huninps* tnnW n tn Tam?a
Porter, another agent, residing In London,
Instructing him to deliver the other copy
of the charter, which was left with Porter
by Gov. Wlnthrop twenty-four years previous.
That Is positive evidence that there
were duplicates."
Payment to Capt. Wadsworth.
In 1715 Capt. Joseph Wadsworth, a resident
of Hartford, who has the credit of
having rescued and hidden the charter In
the oak, made application to the assembly
lui t'niiytiinttuuii lur ins si'rvii'cs 10 me
state." and he was voted "twenty shillings
for his good services In preserving our duplicate
charter at a time when our constitution
was struck at." That Is the first
and only official reference to the disappearance
of the charter. But it is difficult to see
how Capt. Wadsworth could have rescued
the document, because he was not a mem- 1
toer of the assembly and he could not have
been present, because that body was in secret
session with Gov. Andros when it disappeared.
It is possible that some member
of the assembly may have seized It and
passed it out to him in the darkness so
that he could hide it in the old tree.
A member of the committee which voted
the twenty shillings to Capt. Wadsworth
was Roger Wolcott, later governor and
chief Justice, who was seven years old at
the time or the Incident ana must have
heard It discussed In his childhood and
boyhood If not In his after life. But, what
la even more strange, forty-four years later.
In 1769, Judge Wolcott wrote a history of
Connecticut, In which he relates the Incident
and says that the "charters were set
on the table," using the plural, 'and that
when the candles were relighted "tho charters"
(using the plural a second time)
"were gone;" but nobody else has ever
suggested that both copies were hidden In
the charter oak.
Ezra Stiles, while president of Tale College,
says that Roger Wolcott related the
Incident to him. and that he wrote It down
at the time. He uses the plural In referring
to the charters, but doee not mention Capt.
Wadsworth or the charter oak. and gives
the credit to other people. He says that
"Nathan Stanley took one copy and Gov.
Talcott's father took the other."
Woman Found Dead in a Hotel.
BALTIMORE, July 10.?Lying across the
bed In scant clothing the lifeless body of
Mrs. May E. Malar of Annapolis, Md., a
guest at the Hotel Hermann, Pratt and
Eutaw streets, was discovered shortly after
3 o'clock yesterday afternoon by Sorgt.
Lurz of the western district. After notifying
Coroner Martin the police had the
body removed to the morgue. Mrs. Maler
registered at the hotel about 0 o'clock Monday
night, paying for her room In advance.
Before retiring It Is said that she complained
of a pain which she said was
nauapd hv Inrile-Antinn. hut othprwffifl shA
seemed In perfect health. She did not
come down to breakfast In the morning1,
and when called at noon gave no response.
After several attempts to rouse her the
police were notified. Sergt. Lurz went to
the hotel, and going upstairs broke open
the door and found her lying upon the bed
dead. It Is thought that death was due to
natural causes.
Has Grave Opened; Finds Lost Son.
FRESNO. Pal . Julv 10.?The body of a
youth burled a week ago in Mountain View
cemetery was disinterred yesterday afternoon
by the county coroner at the request
of Mra. George Klrkham, wife of a Selma
rancher, who identified the remains as
those of her son, who mysteriously disappeared
from home last February. A few
days ago a west side rancher found the
boy's corpse floating1 down the San Joaquin
river. An effort was made to Identify,
the remains, which appeared to have been
In the water several months, but without
avail. Yesterday Mrs. Ktrkham noticed in
a local paper an account of the finding of
thA VwiHv fears became aroused and
she determined to investigate. The grave
was opened, and Mrs. Kirkham Identified
her sixteen-year-old boy by Irregularities
In the teeth and a peculiar indentation In
the skull. The boy had a considerable
sum of money when he left home. He kept
this in his sock. When found the body had
the socks removed. The police are Inclined
to suspect murder.
