in Murder of Husband
Three Years Ago.

LYNCHBURG. Va.. October 26.?Mrs.
Koxie Howl, widow of Frank Howl, the
man murdered in Nelson eoumy three
years ago by John Moore, who escaped
electrocution after conviction by being:
rescued from jail, became violently insane
in a hospital here yesterday, having
been brought here for treatment for a
minor malady from Buena Vista, where
she has been Living since her acquittal
of implic ation in he murder of her husband.
Mrs. Howl became a menace to
the hospital as well as herself, and it was
necessary to call in the police, who removed
her to the city jail, where she will
be held pending removal to the Western
State Hospi al. at Staunton.
Drank Poisoned Liquor.
Mow died fom drinking poisoned
moonshine iiquor in his home in the
mountains of Nelson county. After burial
l.is body was disinter: <d and an analysis
<h-covered poison in the stomach.
This led to the arrest of Mis. Howl and

recaptured.
Moore Reported Slain. .
It was always thought Moore was liberated
by the same mob that would have
lynched him several months before, because
the mountaineers did not think he
should suffer alone for the murder. Moore
disappeared, but it is cl;/med that a year

FREAK DANCES AND SONGS
MAY COST YOU BIG FINES
"Occoquan Lockstep" Also Probable
Punishment in the Police
Court.
If you don't think the composers of the
popular songs of the day have handled
the job in the right way, and if you,
singing in public, interpolate words into
the song which are not just right, it is
more than likely that it will cost you
approximately SUA to be paid to the

of these dances in too enthusiastic way,
according to Judge Pugli, the limit sentence

was in the Police Court

MDRMONWIVES^SLAVES'
Sold Into Marriage by Parents,
n ?
ueciares Mrs. wiiour
F. Crafts.
Quoting a, former member of the
Mormon Churc-h as her authority. Mrs.
Wilbur F. Crafts, wife of Rev. Wilbur
F. Crafts of the international reform
bureau of the Interdenominational Missionary
Union, yesterday afternoon
characterized Mormon wives of the
i present day as being neither more nor
I less than "white slaves." for the reason
I that under new conditions in Utah
these so-called wives are sold into
marriage by their parents.
Mrs. Crafts made her charges at a
meeting of the Missionary Union at
tiie Public Library, and said today that
she has every reason *to believe as true
everything told her by the former member
of the Mormon Church. Hans
Freece. who is a graduate of Columbia
University, and now a practicing attorney
before the New York bar. She
said she has knokn Mr. Freece for
many years, and that before he left
the Mormon Church he was engaged in
proselyting work in England and'Denmark
l>efore those countries prohibited
the proselyting of girls for the church
in Utah.
"The condition of the Mormon woman
in Utah today." Mrs. Crafts said In her
address, "under tthe n'cw system of marriage
in force there, is worse than ever
before. Under the new system there are
no witnesses to any so-called marriaee
J ceremony, and the 'bride' doe-* not even
I see the face of the man that marries
her. t'nder the new system ttm wife cannot
use or claim her husband's name, nor
recognize him as her husband in public.
Moreover, the father is not liable for the
support of a plural wife or her children."
Mrs. George Thompson Prewltt opened
the meeting with an explanation of the
Mormon religious books. The committee
In charge of the meeting was composed
of Mrs. \V. J. H. Robinson, chairman;
Mrs. J. E. Gilbert. Mrs. O. E. Brown,
Mrs. II. S. Petrle. Mrs. James Buhrer,
Mrs. Washington Topham. Mrs. George
! T. Prewitt. Mrs. L. F. Olney and Miss

Money Trust Probers May Be
Denied Data.
WICKERSHAM TO RULE
Expected to Term National Examiners'
Information "Privileged."
PURPOSE OF UNTERMEYER
Trying to Use Executive Branch for
Work Congress Refuses to Authorize,
Is Charge.
Attorney General Wickersham ultimately
will hold, it is hfard, that in[
formation gathered by national bank oxj
aminors as to affairs of a national bank
I is privileged and that it cannoto fce used
j by and for the special committee of Con!
gress. known as the Pujo committee, that
has been investigating: the question of a
i money trust.
Early in October, when President Taft
j was in Washington for a day or so, he
was visited by Samuel Untermever, couni
sei forrfhe Pujo committee, who requested
that national bank examiners be directed
to inquire into certain phases of national
bank business and that the controller bo
directed to turn over to the committee
! all information as to national bank af:
fairs asked for by the committee.
The request of Mr. Untermeyer was referred
to the Department of Justice, finding
Its way Into the hands of an assistant
of Mr. Wickersham. This assistant has
prepared a decision, but Mr. Wickersham
himself has not acted on it and may not
act definitely for some time to come.
The understanding, however, is that if
Mr. Wickersham indorses the work of
his subordinate the decision will decline
to aid Mr. Untermeyer and his committee.
Purpose of Untermeyer.
The prevailing view is that Mr. Entermeyer
is caring little for information now
in the hands of the controller. -This information
is practically available from
maiy other sources. The iftatter of
credits and loans and the interrelationship
of large banks in New York is
easily obtained from printed reports of
the condition of banks and other publications
that show clearly what directors
of one institution are connected with
another. What Mr. Untermeyer is trying
to have done, it is said, is to get
from President Taft an order compelling
national bank examiners to investigate
the issuing and ofTertng for sale of securities
by banks and how far these banks
are connected with various moneyed corporations
in these issues.
Ke wants to go still further and ascertain,
through reports of examinei-s, what
becomes of the profits on underwriting of
securities; whether the profits go into
the assets of the bank or whether portions
of the profits are in stocks given as
bonuses that find their way into the
hands of directors and officers of the
banks.
It has been brought out that Morgan
& Co., for forming the harvester trust
and financing its securities .obtained the
Mitvt c*f tV? r^Ul ?n p/?mmnn
ncai ititviu sntin vi f ?utuw(vw **? wtuiuvt*
fc'tock.
Such Matters Not Reported.
Examiners of national banks do not
now report upon such matters to the controller
and are not asked to do so. The
controller could direct that this information
he obtained if lie thou-ght it necessary
to the carrying out of national banking
laws and tl?o protection of the banks.
But he has never considered it necessaryIf
he did so, it is declared, the rulings of
the courts are that these reports would
be privileged, confidential from the banks.
Mr. Untermeyer, It is pointed out, is
trying to force the executive branch of
the government to secure for him Information
that the existing law holds to be
coniidential between the controller and
the banks. If Congress wishes such Information,
It is contended by those who
are opposed to granting the request for
Information. It can pass amendments to
the national banking laws directing
examiners to secure this Information as
to syndicate or underwriting operations
for the use of Congress, but the trouble
Is, it is said, that Congress has steadily
refused 10 pass propo.-ed amendments of
this kind. The Pujo committee was unable
to get through a joint resolution
bringing out this information. AH the
powers it has were conferred by House
resolution, which does not take the place
of laws passed by Congress and signed
by the President. i
It is admitted that many large national
, banks do place upon tlie* market large
* Issues of bonds for railroads or industrial
concerns, making profits in the sale
of these issues. I'nder the national banking
laws, however, they have the right
to buy and sell bonds, presumably, of
course, for investment. Limitation of
these purchases and sales would be exceedingly
difficult, it is said.
Attorney General's Position.
That Mr. Untermeyer cannot use the
executive branch of the government for
work that the legislative branch refuses
to authorize, is believed to be the posittnn
the ittnrllKV (Ifflr>r:l 1 will tnU,.
The chance has frequently been made
that several of the big New York national
banks are closely allied to Morgan
& Co.. and other big private
j banking concerns and that the banks are
' part of the gigantic combination which
it is sought to show composes a real
money trust.

Democrats Would Control Dis-;

i
PLANS ALREADY ON FOOT
- Expect
to Begin With Commissioners
and Go Down the Line.
SLATES ARE PARTLY MADE UP
W. V. Cox, James F. Oyster, Robert
N. Harper, M. I. Weller and
W. McK. Clayton Mentioned.
The democrats are planning practically
a clean sweep of the offices in the District
government In the event of the election
of a democratic administration November
3, It is said by local democrats who are
taking an ac-tive part in the present
campaign. Starting with the District
Commissioners, there is to be, it is
asserted, a change alj the way down the
line at the District building, unless there
is good reason to retain the present incumbents,
which means in most instances
that to retain a job the incumbent must
be a good democrat
Since the democrats here became convinced
that their party would win in tire
coming election, and Wood row Wilson
was to be the next President of the
T*r?Y f Afl SJf 1 f AC? 1/vao 1 rv/\HH/>lnnn V<n*?a

been scurrying around framing up slates
or partial slates for the many offices
which are to be filled in the District of
Columbia.
As a starter the Washington democrats
obtained from each of the democratic
candidates for the presidential nomination
a promise that they would, in the
event of their election to President, respect
the wishes of the local democrats
for "home rule." In other words,'they
would appoint Washington men to offices
in the District. And the democrats are
confident that Gov. Wilson will stand by
this promise if he comes to the White
House.
Mentioned for Commissioners.
So far the men who have been most
prominently mentioned in democratic circles
for District Commissioners are W. V.
Cox,' president of the Second National
Dank; Capt: James P. Oyster, president
of the Chamber of Commerce; Robert X.
Harper, president of the District National
Dank; M. I. Weller and William
McK. Clayton, president of the Federation
of Citizens' Associations. It is understood
that Mr. Clayton will probably
be named as the candidate of the Federation
of Citizens' Associations, and that
they will stand behind him In the race.
All of these men are well known in the
democratic party in the District.
Henry L. West, who was District Commissioner
before the present board was
appointed by Prosider.it Taft, and who
re presented the democracy on the board,
may be a candidate for the place also,
it Is said. Already it is understood work
in his behalf has been quietly begun by
his friends.
It was an unwritten law for many years
that there should be one republican, one
democrat and an army officer on the
board of District Commissioners, But the
democrats have served notice that If
they come into power they are going to
demand that both the civilian Commissioners
be appointed from the ranks of
the democracy. They ctaim that when
President Taft appointed Commissioners
Rudolph and Johnston he did not abide
by tills unwritten, law. They declare that
Commissioner Johnston, a former army
officer, is more of a republican than a
democrat. The local democrats made a
lighting against his confirmation on this
ground when his name was sent to the
Senate for confirmation, an? in the Sen- ,
ate committee all the democratic senators,
it is said, supported them In their
fight against the confirmation! of Johnston.
Terms Expire Next January.
The terms of the two civilian Commissioners
expire next January, when they
will have been in office for three years.
The organic act of the District calls for
the appointment of two civilian Commissioners
for three-year terms, or service
may continue until their successors are
appointed. The question arises as to
whether President Taft will reappoint
Commissioners Rudolph anil Johnston for
another three-year term next January,
even if he himself is going out of office
March 4. It is believed,-however, -by the
democrats that in the event of the election
of Gov. "Wilson to the presidency
President Taft will not reappoint the
Commissioners, but will allow them to
continue in office until their successors
are appointed by tthc democratic administration.
There
will be a great amount of patronage
in the District to be distributed by
the democrats If they come into power,
outside of the District building. A new
postmaster for Washington will be appointed,
and It is understood that John
S. Miller may become a candidate for that
office. Other offices that will be filled with
democrats are United States district attorney,
corporation counsel, collector of
customs at the port of Georgetown, re
corder or deeds and t-nitca States marshal.
Whether Henry E. Davis, who was
formerly United States district attorney
here, would accept the p!ae<> again If it
were offered him is problematical. That
there will be many of the democratic
lawyers out for tlte district attorneyship
as well as for the office of corporation
counsel goes without saying.
An office which does not come under the
District government in any sense of the
term, but which the local democrats mean
to have a try for, is that of public printer.
Two possible, candidates for the place are
Patrick J. Haltigan and C. F. Sudwarth.
One thing which the local democrats
have made very clear is that in their demand
that District jobs be given to bona
fide residents of the District they will
seek to clear out of the District building
any employes who hffve their residences
In the states, who own property elsewhere
and do not pay taxes In the District.

Progressive Speaker Declares
They Are "Contemptible."
LAUDATION OF ROOSEVELT
- i
Congress Described as "Sinister
Bunch"?Inquirer at Third Term
Meeting Provokes Discord.
Brimming over with enthusiasm for the
progressive party and its leader, Col.
Roosevelt, nearly a,000 third-termers of
the District gathered at National Rifles'
Armory last night, and listened to addresses
by William Gillette, the actorauthor;
Senator Moses E. C'lapp of Minnesota
and others. The crowd sang "Onward,
Christian Soldiers," the hymn of
the new party, and patriotic songs, led
dv tne Jane -\aciams enorus 01 iuu women. :
Threats of a serious disturbance "arose j
when Mr. Gillette was speaking. A tall,'
gray-haired man interrupted, asking how
Mr. Roosevelt was going to accomplish
the reforms which Mr. Gillette was prom- i
ising in the name of the leader. Frank J.
Hogan. national committeeman of the
new party for the District, attempted to
quiet the interrupter, but he refused to
be quiet. In a moment he was surrounded
by angry men, shaking their fists. Cries
of "Throw him out!" arose, and one man
leaped from the gallery and dared the
"heckler" to come down into the street
and fight it out with him. Finally Mr.
Gillette and Mr. Hogan restored order and
the meeting proceeded with its business.
Assault Charge Develops.
Later in the evening Policeman Oduni
of the first precinct arrested a man who
gave his name as Thomas Stafford, tliir- j
ty-three years old, a mechanic, on a
charge of assaulting Thomas Roades, an
attorney, during the meeting. Stafford j
was locked up for the night.
Mr. Gillette devoted much of his time to i
a censure of Congress, which he termed j
a "sinister bunch of 4<h? that sits in I
Washington within the walls of the Cap- i
itol." He attacked the party in power j
and the "utterly contemptible courts of
justice." Ho declared that the courts'
of the United Stales had provod the least
efficient tribunals for the punishment of
crime in the world.
Clapp Attacks Wilson.
Senator Clapp, after addressing an overflow
meeting In the hall of the armory,
appeared in the hall and denounced the
democratic party. He attacked Gov.
Wilson because of Mr. Wilson's failure to
initiate legislation in Now Jersey against
the trusts, although Mr. Wilson professed
to desire truBt legislation.
Senator Clapp paid his respects to the j
republican party, also declaring that the:
bulwarks of that party were crushed in,
and the party on the verge of dissolution.
The presidential contest, he said, is be- ,
tween the progressive and democratic '
parties.
Roosevelt's big stock Senator Clapp defined
as the colonel's reflection of the (
people's will. It was lack of this re- ,
flection, he said, that caused the messages
of President Taft to be derided by the '
Senate. The democratic party, he declared,
is the "intellectual Interrogation j
point" and unfit to govern any growing
country.
Discusses Roosevelt's Character. 1
t
Mrs. William IL Beck, widow of Brig. :
Gen. Bock, and mother of the army
a.viator, Paul Beck, spoke on the char- j
icter of Roosevelt. Dr. J. R. Wilder, one j
>f the colonel's supporters in the District, i
also made a brief address. 1
On the platform in the auditorium were .
Prank J. Hogan, William Gillette, Mrs. ,
William H. Beck, Senator Clapp and Dr. i
i. R. Wilder. All of these, with the ex- <
reptlnn of Mrs. Beck and Dr. Wilder, *
repeated their speeches before the over- '
low meeting in the hall on the ground r
loor, and besides them Galen L. Tait of 4
Maryland and Harry I. Quinn, candidate 1
'or Congress from the seventeenth dis- 1
rict of Maryland, made addresses. *
Among the notables on the platform '
vere Admiral Chester, U. S. X.; Brig, js
