PENALTY IS IMPRISONMENT No More True Bills In Bucket Shop Investigation?Brewery Workers Charged With Conspiracy. Kugene C. Wilson and Frank Buzzoni were Indicted today by the grand Jury for setting up naming tables by having fixed places at which bets on the result of the running of horse races might bs made. The punishment provided for a conviction under section W5 of the code Is not more than flvo years' Imprisonment In the peni tentiary. An Indictment for setting up a gaming table, It being alleged that the defendants conducted a poker game July 2S, 1!XI7. at the Mohican Club, on Pennsylvania avenue between 14th and 15th streets, was also returned against Fred G. Vogt. Philip B Anderson and Edwin B. Smith. Wilson Is under $1 <100 ball, furnished at the time of his arrest last month, but Buz zoni has not been apprehended, the In formation received by the police being that he sailed for Italy when The Star's cru tade against gambling had drawn the at tention of the police to him. Bucket Shop Investigation. No indictments touching other forms of gambling were returned, and as the term of the present grand Jury exp'res today It Is possible tluit the bucket shop investiga tion has failed to divulge sufficient testi mony on which to Indict any more local Mock brokers. It may b*>. however, that the ("nlted States attorney has decided to await the disposition of the five cases al ready pending, in which will be mud ? plain the applicability of tt, fe tion of the code to * he form .if business carried un by the all' ged bucket shops. SI ould the law be upheld by thf> trial Judge it is not unl ke'y that other brokers 1 may fall und. r the bun. as District Attor- ' ney Baker has declared no bucket shop ?lull be conducted in Washington If his view of the law be sustained.

BOOKS NOW BEING EXAMINED Evidence to Show the Old Trust Still Persists TO BE SESSIONS IN WASHINGTON May Not Have to Call Henry M. Flag ler?Thaws Shown to Hold Large Block of Stock. NEW YORK. September 20.?Frank B Kellogg, the government counsel In Its Bult to dissolve the Standard Oil Company, Is expected to return today from W ashlng ton, where he went Saturday to report progress In the rase to the President and Attorney General Bonaparte. The hearing In the oase will he resumed Thursday and meantime the government representatives are going over such books as the Standard Oil Company has placed at their disposal ond otherwise preparing for a resumption of the case. The statement was made today that some new evidence regarding the government's contention that the present Standard Oil Company is really a reorganization of the old trust has been discovered. It had been believed that it would be necessary to call to the stand Henry M. Flagler, secretary of the o'.d board of liquidation trustees, to clear up this point, but it is said that such a course in view of the new evidence will not now be pursued. Railroad Rebates. Another examiner, it is announced, will be appointed in a few days by the Missouri court to sit with Examiner Ferris In the taking of testimony against the New Jer sey corporation. The duties of this addi tional examiner will be to listen to testi mony relating only to railroad rates on oil and rebates, which are alleged to have been granted to the Standard during its fight against independent oil op rators. The two examiners will sit together at every session of the hearings after the question of rates and rebates is taken up. owing to the tact that much of the testimony will necessarily be fragmentary and evidence on both the rale and trust question will be placed upon the record during the same day. The hearings here will probacy last at lc ast two and possibly three more weeks. Testimony will also be taken in Washing ton, Cleveland, Chicago and St. Eouis. This shifting of base for the hearings is made necessary by the fact that the government subpoenas can only compel witnesses to travel 1U<> miles to attend the hearing. Thaws Are Interested. The list of Standard Oil Company's stock holders submitted last week by John G Mllburn of counsel for the Standard Oil Company shows that the Thaws of Pitts- j burs are heavily interested in Standard Oil. ! A block of several hundred shares is held j in trust for Harry Kendall Thaw. The name : of ills mother also app-ars on the list as holder of more than l.<><>0 shares, worth in | execs of ?440.<*M. Eight members of the j Thaw family own among them over fi\e thousand shares. * AFTER OIL SHIPPERS. Standard Is Now Playing for Its Revenge. Sr rHnI Pispstrb ^e Ptiif. CHICAGO. IB-.

INSURANCE MEN BUSY BIG LIFE COMPANIES QUIETLY PLANNING FOR ELECTIONS. NEW YORK September ,10.?The big j JIfe Insurance companies. It is an nounci (1 today, have for some time past been quietly preparing for their annual elec tions under the Armstrong insurance law. A year ago these elections caused a world wide interest, because of the fight to defeat the administration tickets of the Mutual Life and the New York Life by the inter national policyholders' committee, which put a ticket of its own in the field for each company. These opposition tickets were de feated. Although the policyholders' committee after its defeat announced that the effort to oust the present managements of the companies would Vie renewed at the next flection, no steps to that end have been taken yet. so far as can be learned The managements of the companies con cerned. it is stated, have, for the most part, renominated present directors. The admin istration ticket of the New York Life, which is just being sent to the policyholders, shows that ten of the twelve men whose terms expire in lins have been renominated. The two who are to drop out are Alexander E. Orr and Clarence H. Mackay. Mr. Orr, who is over seventy years old. has long de sired to retire, and Mr. Mackay's varied in terests make it impossible for him to give the insurance company the attention lie be lieves it should have. Mr. Orr's place on the ticket has been taken by Rowland H. Hazard, a prominent manufacturer of Peacedale. R I., while William R. Inniss, general manager of the Studebaker Manu facturing Company in New York, takes the place of Mr. Mackay. The Date for Election. The date for the election of these direct ors Is At>ril 1. Under the amended law ths ticket has to be filed with the state super intendent of elections seven months befora the election. It is, therefore, now on tile, as are letters of acceptance from each of the nominees, according to a provision of the amended law. The Mutual Reserve, whose elections take place on April 22. has also iiled its ticket, all the Incumbents being renominated. The Equitable. which must have its elec tion on December 4. has'also renominated the members of the present board whos? terms expire with the year, with the excep tion that Ludwig Nissen, a- diamond Im porter of New York, takes the place of Joseph Bryan of Richmond, who has re signed. The annual election of the Mutual Life does not come until June 2. and the admin istration ticket lias not been selected. CHICAGO'S WAVE OF CRIME. Bloody Record for Sunday at Big City on the Lake.

LUNCHEON WITH TERAUCHI Reassurance the Keynote of His Speech Tonight. TO SET AT REST IDLE RUMORS Spent a Quiet Sunday?Conference With Minister of War?Warm Greeting From Populace. TOKIO, September 30.?Secretary Taft, In the course of his speech at the munic ipal dinner to be given In his honor to night, Is expected to deny emphatically the reports that the relations between the United States and Japan were at any time strained. This had developed as a result of the publication in the Asahl of a special dispatch from London asserting "on high authority" that the Washington statesmen "are tired of the hectoring attitude of Jap anese officialdom, hence the dispatch of the American battleship fleet to the Pacific and the changed tone of the Japanese since the orders were Issued." In view of the extremely friendly attitude of the Japanese toward Mr. Taft the pub- I licatlon of the dispatch caused uneasiness and surprise here. The Japanese news papers sent representatives to Mr. Taft. who Immediately said he would give a re ply In his speech tonight. Mr. Taft has been engaged all the morn ing in writing his speech. He was the guest at luncheon today of the war inin later, Lieut. Gen. Terauchi. Program Changed. The program mapped out for Secretary Taft has again been changed. He and his party will leave Toklo for Kobe Wednes day at 6:20 p.m. Preliminary to throe days of social and diplomatic activity. Secretary Taft and his party spent a quiet Sunday rest ing In the Palace of Shlba, an an cient and picturesque residence belong ing to the Imperial family. During ti e day numerous Japanese dignitaries and officials called upon the Secretary, many of them accompanied by their wives. Charlie Taft organized a base ball game on the famous lawn of the castle with a number of Japanese youths. It was In tended to play the game yesterday, but his fptlier objected and caused a postponement until today. Lengthy Conference With Terauchi. Among the most Important of the call ers on the Secretary yesterday was Lieut. Gen. Terauchi, the imperial minister of war, who had a lengthy conference with Mr. Taft. Some Importance is ueing attached to the fact that there have been two con ferences between the two war ministers, and on account of the mutual admiration and the influence of Lieut.Gen.Terauchi. it is believed in certain quarters that the ground work is being laid for an entente con cerning immigration, which, it Is conceded. Is the on.y point on which there Is dif ference of opinion between tlie two coun tries. It Is intimated that If the opportunity arises during his conference with the em peror October 2 Mr. Taft mac broach thTs subject to him and leave its future arrange ment to Mr. O'Brien, the American am bassador. Diplomatic circles, however, do not credit this rumor, it being ass ?rted there that Mr. Taft is not on a direct mis sion. The probability of such an occur rence. however, is freely discussed among the Japanese. Other Callers Yesterday. Another of Mr. Taft's callers yest rday was Leveus E. Wilfley, representing Amer ican commercial interests In Snangha , who is anxious concerning the attitude of the United States, in view of the ta k oi the dismemberment of China, and w.io came here to request that Mr. Tail make a positive statement concerning this oil the occasion of the dinner to be giv -n In his honor by the American Association of Shanghai. It is understood that Air. Wlifley was informed that S creta y Taf;. would make no statement on the question. Secretary Taft and his family look a long drive in the imperial carriage yesterday ait erno^n. The route which the carriage would take had not been announced, but the crowds in the streets recognized tiie Ameri can Secretary of War and greeted h in with chies of "Banzai!" and bows and smiles. It was quite evident that ihe en thusiasm was spontaneous. Ti.e Jap-ins-j believe Mr. Taft is a p-ace envoy. SHOT THROUGH OPEN WINDOW. Engineer at Sharon Steel Fia.it Mur dered by Unknown.
