That the Illinois Central is several
million, dollars in arrears as a result
of taxdodging is the contention of
Att'y Gen. Patrick J. Lucey, field yes
terday with the Cook county board
of review. "
The attorney general says he can
produce proofs which will force the
road to pay assessments for the past
25 years on behalf of the south town.
The board has been asked to assess
for the year 1889 to 1914 inclusive.
Action in other counties in which the
I. C. operates will surely follow if the
fight against them in Cook is success
ful. The amounts on which the attor
ney general believes the county can
recover taxes are as follows:
Stocks and bonds (1889-1914) not
exempt from a minimum in 1889 of
$32,000,000 to a maximum in 1905 of
Property scheduled in 1906-13 as
exempt from general revenue law, but
taxable for state purposes only, rang
ing in value from $52,937,155 to $63,
729,816. Personal property, 1906-13, not ex
empt and not listod for taxation,
ranging from $70,000,000 to $95,000,
000. Dividends and interest on stocks
and bonds, 1906-13, ranging from $2,
190,000 to $3,700,000.
Accounts against subsidiary com
panies not listed and not exempt,
from $3,600,000 to $38,000,000.

Investigations of the defunct Lori-mer-Munday
banks by state and fed
eral grand juries were resumed yes
terday and a number of witnesses
called before each body. '
The testimony is said to have re
lated principally to the large loans
made by the institutions without the
proper security. Hiram B. Kadish,
the government's expert, was among
the witnesses called. His testimony
dealt with the standing of the Mun-
day interests in the lower end of the
state which he investigated last week.
It is said that huge loans were
made to the downstate interests at
the time that it was known they were
Paris, July 22. Paris today awaits
the next big scene in the story of
Mme. Joseph Caillaux, wife of the
former prime minister. It has heard
her tell what she has suffered and
under what emotional stress she shot
Gaston Calmette, editor of La Figaro.
The next big scene in the drama is
expected when Caillaux, "the might
iest man in Prance," will seek to
shield his mate and assume responsi
bility for the murder.
Paul Bourget, a playwright and
author, member of the Academie
Francaise, was the first witness to
day. He was with Calmette in the
latter's office when Mme. Caillaux's
card was brought in.
Judge Albanet questioned him as to
just what happened and what Cal
mette said when he received the card
of the cabinet minister's wife.
"Opening the sealed envelope,"
said Bourget, "Calmette declared, 'It
is Mme. Caillaux.'
" 'Are you going to receive here?'
I asked.
" 'I must; she is a woman,' Cal
mette replied.
"I then said that I would leave
him," Bourget testified, "and had
reached the front door, one flight be
low Calmette's office, when I heard a
commotion. I ran back.
"I was the first to enter the office.
Calmette lay gasping in his chair.
Mme. Caillaux was standing. The
pistol was in her hand. She was
verv calm. An office attendant took
hold of Mme. Caillaux. She turned
to him and said:
" 'Unhand me! I am a woman. I
shall not run.' "
