Rumored Sixteen Arrested in
Detroit on Graft Charges *
Will Be Tried Quickly.
DETROIT, Mich., August 1<>.?Rumors
that the sixteen aldermen arrested in
connection with the alleged councilmanic
Kraft exposure will waive police court ex
amination and that the cases will be dis
posed of in record time were in circula
tion tonight. It was said that a tenta
tive agreement had been reached be
tween Prosecuting Attorney Hugh Shep
herd anrl the attorneys for the accused
to allow for this procedure.
The only other development in the sit
uation today were the statements that
three of the officials have already con
fessed and that Detective William J. j
Burns has been called back to the city j
: to look into new evidence uncovered by |
t the prosecutor. Tin- latter official refused
i tn discuss the prospective visit of the
! detective. He also declined to give any
of the details of the alleged confessions.
When he left his office this afternoon he
"There will be nothing doing today and
probibl.v not Monday. But more arrests
will come after Monday. That's all."
Persecuted, Says Attorney.
X K\V YORK, August li>.?Nicholas
Spielberg, who said he wa - a lawyer,
formerly of Detroit, was arrested here So
day on the strength of a telegram from
the chief of polit e of Detroit asking that
he be held as a fugitive from justice. As
no charge was specified the court dis
charged him.
After his release Spielberg said h's ar
l rest was due to persecution at the hands
of the "grafting aldermen'* of Detroit.
"Tt was I." he said, "who started the
investigation that has resulted in the ar
rest of sixteen of thes^; aldermen. Owing
to testimony that 1 gave in the beginning
I of the investigation I was forced to leave
the city."
President Stamps His Disap
proval on That Number of
Messages During Term.
When 1'resident Taft vetoed the wool
bill he had stamped with his disapproval
the twenty-fifth legislative measure sent
to him from Congress during his admin
Although most of his vetoes have been
on comparatively unimportant subjects,
during the special Congress session last
summer President Taft began to wield
his pen against measures regarded by
the legislators with great interest. Four
of his vetoes have been of tariff bills. His
one other veto of importance last year
was directed at the joint resolution ad
mitting Arizona and New Mexico to
statehood. This bill met u*i t h execu
tive disapproval because of the provi
sion in the Arizona constitution allowing
the recall of judges.
Army Bill Returned.
In addition to the wool bill the Presi
dent has returned one other important
measure at this session, the army appro
priation bill, which as it passed Con
gress would have legislated Gen. Leon
ard Wood out of office March 4 and
would have made radical changes in the
army. Already, however, he has planned
enough vetoes for this session to add a
half dozen to the present record.
The vetoes of the steel tariff bill and
the legislative, executive and judicial ap
propriation bill, with its amendment abol
ishing the Commerce Court, will be sent
to Congress early this week. -Messages
returning the proposed cotton revision bill
and tlie excise tax bill will be preparer!
when Congress sends them to the White
J louse.
President Stops Car in Rock Creek
Pai;k to Help Party in
President Taft. his personal aid, Maj.
Thomas L?. Ithoads. ami W. C. Herron,
the President's brother-in-law, took part
in a rescue of two women and a man in
distress in Rock Creek Park late Friday
A mde down the forest-shaded road
through the park the President's' car
(lashed another big automobile just a few
rods ahead. Its front wheels anil part
of the body -were hanging over the bank
fifteen feet al?ove Rock Creek, and look
ing ready to plunge down at any moni< .it.
Two frightened women and the driver
vv> r?- looking at the machine, but were
apparently helpless. The three occupants
of the presidential car held a hurried con
sultation and t1 -c President's chauffeur
was called upon to give expert testimony.
No one could so;ve the problem for a few
minutes, but Mr. Tuft finally came to the
rescue himself. ?
"Turn the > ai around. Robinson." he
said to the chauffeur. "Put on your skid
chains and we'll haul them out."' Robin
son obeyed orders and the imperiled ma
chine was pulled back to the roadway.
Its occupants refused to give their
names, but they recognized the President
and thanked him heartily.

Great Appreciation Expressed
Over the Activities of
United States.
It was announced at the Department of
State yesterday that the invitation sent
by this government to the Latin American
states to sign an international opium con
vention, now open at The Hague, is meet
ing with a cordial and prompt reception.
Great appreciation has been expressed
by the Latin American states of the fact
that, although this government has many
domestic and foreign matters of material
importance to engage its attention, never
theless it has no; failed to take advan
tage of the opportunity to exert itself in
a great humanitarian reform having as
its basis the refreshing of international
comity and a better understanding be
tween china and the western powers.
In e?.?ential. the international opium
convention signed at The Hague January
provides that the abuses of opium in
China and in the internal territories of
the eleven other powers who signed the
convention shall become effective inter
nationally, when it is agreed to by the
remaining thirty-four nations of Europe
and America.
Agreed to Co-Operate.
The Netherlands government undertook
by a speeitic article of the convention to
so ure the thirty-four necessary signa
tures, and the American government
agreed as lite result of diplomatic
correspondence to co-operate with
them so far as the Latin American states
were concerned. Two European coun
tries. Belgium and Luxembourg, have so
far signet' the convention, and it has been
agree.! to by the following i.atiti Ameri
can states: Mexico, Guatemala. Panama,
Ecuador, Honduras. Cuba, Costa Rica,
Dominican Republic, Haiti, Salvador,
Bolivia and Chile.
It is expected by the Department of
State that the remaining Latin American
nations will shortly, adhere to the con
vention, more especially in view of the
fact that Brazil and Peru, along with
the I'nited States, were the powers of
America who in their treaties with China
absolutely forbade their subjects to en
gage in the opium trade in Chinese
Secretary MacVeagh Rules on^
Allowance of Drawback
to Exporters.
Secretary of the Treasury MacVeagh
yesterday settled the long standing con
troversy over the payment of drawback
on sugar and sirup by complete'y chang
ing the practice of the last fourteen years
so that it is believed the government will
not allow an undue amount of refund
to exporters on sirup. Very little refined
sugar is exported.
I'ndi-r the new arrangement a fixed rate
of approximately cents per gallon will
be allowed ;ts drawback on sirup, while
the drawback oil refined sugar will vary
according to the amount of duty paid on
the raw sugar. The combined drawback
ftn sugar and siruj> will not be greater
than tK? per cent of the duties paid.
Heretofore a fixed drawback has been
allowed on refined sugar, while the draw
back dp sirup has been per cent of
its market value. This, it was feared,
might be an incentive to exporters to
increase the market value of syrup and
thus cause the government to pay more
drawback than was proper.
One of the big refineries wanted the
drawback distributed in accordance with
the polariscopic test of sugar and sirup,
but the Treasury held this would not
comply with the law.

Chief Manning sail! today that it was
his intention to rearrest Murray at the
expiration of this term, October lt>, and
to take him into court. .lust what charge

any one pay Murray's fine for hint he
would be immediately released from jail,
in wliieh '-ase. Chief .Manning said, his
rearrest would follow at unci .
Murray, who is a son of a former fire
commissioner of Hartford. Colin., is al
