. NEW HAVEN, COM., THURSDAY JTILY 12 1906. THE CARRiyGTOy FOBLISIIIKG CO. SECRETARY OF WAR TAFT t EXCEPTION TAKEN TO UTTER ANCES DELIVERED AT GREENSBORO, N. C. Declares Recent Prosecutions IVot Due io New Statute us Tuft Would Have People Believe Quote From HI Letter of Acceptance During Last Campaign to Prove This Abuses Could Have Been Eliminated Undr the Old Laws. New York, July 11. Former Judge Alton B. Parker in a statement given lout to-day took issue with some of the utterances of Secretary of War Taft in the speech delivered at Greensboro, N. by Mr. Taft last Monday. Judge Parker declares that the secretary in Ms speech sought to have the public draw the inference that the recent prosecutions of alleged illegal combina tions are due to new statutes. To this Judge Parker takes exception and to support his contention he quotes from his letter of acceptance and a speech subsequently delivered during the last presidential campaign. In both the ispeech and the letter Judge Parker Is quoted as saying that the laws then on the statute books were entirely ade quate If enforced. Secretary Taft's speech at Greens boro, N. C, was interesting through out, but it cannot be said that it was accurate throughout. I shall only refer to the statement in which he alluded to the position taken by mo in the campaign of 1904, In substance and ef fect that we have law enough to stop every corporate abuse; that all that is Jacking is an administration disposed to enforce the law. "I said, in the 'letter of acceptance,' under the title of 'Trust Remedies': " 'I pointed out in my earlier response the remedy, which In my judgment, can effectually be placed against mo nopolies and the assurance was then given that if existing law, including (both statute and common law, proved Inadepate, contrary to my expectations, I favor such further legislation, with constitutional limitations, as will best promote and safeguard the interests of nil the people.' "I emphasized the same thought on ether occasions in public speeches. I reiterated It in a speech on Jefferson day. 1905, In which I Baid: " 'The plain truth is that there has Ibeen no time during the past eight years, since the abuses alleged became flagrant, when they could not have been eliminated. Nothing has been so much needed as a rigid, honest, un yielding enforcement of the law, both civil and criminal. But instead of go ing on with the enforcement of the law against rebates by putting the railroad officials responsible for them behind prison bars precisely as we do other malefactors their misconduct is made an excuse for further concentration of power in the federal government.' "It is expected by the administration and the railroad officials who openly consent to the movement, as well as by those who are ostensibly opposed to it, that the people in their just indigna tion at the wrongs done to the many for the benefit of the few, will lose eight of the danger of so vast a cen tralization of power until it is too late to check it. But we should never for get that the safety of our institutions Js involved in every such movement, and instead of submitting to it, should Indst that when a trust or a railroad lias violated the criminal law the place for the guilty official is In Jail or the penitentiary, not In the cabinet or in the board rooms of great railroads. "We do not deny or excuse any wrongs, but we must Insist upon the truth of the maxim that 'two wrongs do not make a right.' NO POPE FOR CHOUKNIN. Severe and Much Hated Russian Ad miral Victim of Assassin. Sebastopol, July 11. An attempt was made at 1 o'clock this afternoon to as sassinate Vice-Admiral Chouknin, com mander of the Black Sea fleet. The ad miral was wounded and taken to a hos pital. Admiral Chouknin's condition is ex tremely serious. Uhe bullet lodged in Hits lung, making breathing difficult. The doctors hold out no hope of his re covery. The admiral's assailant is thought to be one of the sailors of the battleship Otohakoff, and his aot is supposed to be in revenge for the execution of Lieutenant Schmidt, the revolutionary leader. Admiral Chouknin was univer sally hated by his sailors, and at the time of the execution of Schmidt the revolutionists condemned him to death, one hundred of their number pledging themselves to carry out the sentence. This is the second attempt since Schmidt's execution, March 19 of this year. The first attempt was made by a woman, and after her effort had failed Admiral Chouknin ordered her to be killed on the spot, and his orderlies brutally carried out the sentence in the courtyard. For this the admiral was again condemned to death by the revo lutionists. His name was never men tioned among his sailors unless it was accompanied by curses, on account of tiis overbearing and severe manner. Twenty-one Sentenced to Death. Salonika, July 11.

Dougher ty, a prominent democratic politician. The two vehicles came together at a curve in the road and Mr. Dougherty was thrown out and painfully bruised.

Mr. Dougherty expressed his pleasure at the meeting but said he would have been better please! had It taken place under slightly different circumstances. After this friendly colloquy, the vice president resumed his journey, Mr. Dougherty's injuries probably will not prove fatal. D1TRICHSTEIN APPEALS.

The chauffeur is Joseph Walk er of Stamford. In the car with Mr. Ditrichsteln were his wife, Edward J. Slattery, a New York broker, and his wife. TRAVIS TAKES THE MEDAL BEST QUALIFYING SCORE IN GOLF CHAMPIONSHIP. Partridge of Yale Who Showed Tip So Well on First' Day Falls Far Behind Brilliant Work on the Part of at Least Half a Dozen of the Players Summary of the Day's Play, Englewood, N. J., July 11 The En glewood Golf club's course was the scene to-day of some brillinant work on the part of at least half a ' dozen of the players who continued their play from the opening round yesterday for the national golf championship title, and while tho fair green was in good condition the putting greens were not quite as fast as they were when the tournament opened yesterday. Under the rules the qualifying round consists of 36 holes medal play split be tween two days. Yesterday Dwlght Partridge of Yale took the honors with the low score of 57 but he failed to duplicate this work to-day and fell far back. Walter J. Travis of Garden City, a double winner of the national honor and also a winner of tho British ama teur championship title, was the star of to-day's play coming in with a 75 which made his total for the 36 holes 152, this score earning for him the medal play trophy. His closest rival, Jerome D. Travors, who has been play ing great golf recently, was second on the list having made 75 on his second run of the links, a total of 155. His 80 yesterday was made in a violent thun derstorm. H. Chandler Egan, the present cham pion, played a steady game to-day but he was a stroke behind C. H. Bank hart, of Baltimore, who had a total of 158 for the two rounds of the links. The weather conditions favored the players throughout the day's play and some of the matches were keen enough to thoroughly arouse the galleries which followed them. None carried a larger crowd than that which followed Travis. Thirty-two qualified in the prelimi nary round and at the windup it was found that six were tied for the last two places. This was an unlooked for outcome, but after playing half a dozen holes GHman Tiffany of Newburgh, N. Y., who last week won the Hudson river league prize, and W. T. West of Philadelphia won out for the chances in the medal play rounds which will de cide the championship during the next three days. The following are the scores: W. J.

GOOD REASON TO BEWARE OF CANNED MEAT GOODS STATE BO Alt D OF HEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS GIVES OUT FACTS. Although Favorable to Manufacturers In Some Instances Gross Misrepre scntation is Shown in Others This Especially So in Potted Hani One Brand That Showed a Large Amount of Foreign Matter Cornmeal Used to Give Welsht. Boston, July 11. In order that the people of Massachusetts might know the truth with regard to the nature of the canned meat products which are sold in this state, the state board of health to-day made public the result of an investigation which it has been conducting into tho matter. The board examined nearly 150 different kinds of canned meat from every possible sourse, as well as the canned meat establish ments. The examinations Included tests not only as to the presence of chemical pre servatives, but also as to the aotual materials used in "potted" and "devil led" meats and meat "loaf." In a gen eral way, the results of the investiga tion are favorable to the manufactur ers, both in the east and in the west, but it was found that many of the preparations contained a large amount of foreign matter. Of one brand of pot ted ham, prepared by a western firm, the report states: "This was found to consist of a small amount of normal muscle, considerable epidermis in large pieces, numerous blood vessels and nerves and salivary gland, ground to a paste. ' The quaiity was poor, the material being largely scrap." Of another western potted ham the report says: . "Abundant muscle fibre, considerable epidermis, much granular debris, some fat and corn meal. Quality fair, but, inasmuch as there appears to be no ex cuse for the presence of corn meal, it must be regarded as adulterated." An eastern potted ham is described as follows: "Appearance good, muscular fibre abundant; contains neither epidermis nor salivary gland. Quality excellent." A number of the other products, the board of health states, contains corn meal. The board says: "DeviUed ham is, or should be, ham to which seasoning has been added. The majority of devilled hams in the market, however, contain added ma terial which in no way can contribute to a sharp taste, or, Indeed, to any taste. Corn meal, for example, adds nothing to the flavor, but it is cheap and enables a meat product to carry considerable additional water." Several brands of prepared meat were found to contain either boractc acid or borax as a preservative. One eastern chicken loaf is thus described: "Very little muscular fibre; much connective tissue and corn. It is pro served with either boric acid or borax. The label states that the material is of superior quality, 'having been carefully selected and inspected according to the law enacted by congress March 3, 1891, relating to tho inspection of meats.' " MEETING At PIQUOT. Connecticut Harwore Association Ban quet and Elect Officers, The Connecticut Hardware associa tion met yesterday afternoon at the Hotel iPequot, .Morris Cove, where they held their regular meeting and fol lowed this by a banquet and a Jolly good time.

The disquieting rumors that the blacks of the Rand contemplated an uprising July 17 are borne out by the fact that native servants have warned their mis tresses to retire to places of safety. Similar rumors have been circulated In the Reef, but the police ridicule them. However, much anxiety is expressed. A paper read at a conference of the Ethiopian church, embodying reports from the various districts, says an up rising has been openly advised. Six New Trans-Atlantic Liners. New York, July 11.

A special meeting of . the board of directors of the . New Haven Business Men's association was held yesterday afternoon. A discussion regarding in crease of insurance rates took place, and ex-Mayor Hendrkjk, who was pres ent by invitation, addressed the boaro. He stated that no oity in this country had a better fire department than the city of New Haven, and few had as good. In response to a request from the board of fire commissioners the board authorized President S. E. Dibble to appoint a committee of three to meet and co-opertate with the committee from the board of fire commissioners to formulate plans to protest against the increase of insurance rates for the city of New Haven. Col. George D. Post, F. A. O'Neill and John R. Booth were appointed members of the com mittee. The following resolution was unani mously adopted by the directors: Be it Resolved, That we, the board of directors of the New Haven Busi ness Men's association, do hereby ex press our disapproval of the recent ac tion of the New England Insurance ex change In Increasing its rates, and that we use every endeavor to Influence the said Insurance exchange to recede from its decision and restore the for mer rates; and be it further Resolved, That a copy of this reso lution bo sent to the board of fire com missioners of the city of Now Haven, and a copy be also sent to the State Business Men's association of Connect icut. BRIGADE NOW ALL IN CAMP MILITIA WILL TAKE IP RF.GU , LAR ROUTINE TO-DAY Second Regiment Had Splendid Defen sive Position In the Sham Buttle Yes terday Morning Kept Cover in Splendid Style Advance of the Third Well Timed Action at Close Range, Camp Cole, Niantlc, July 11. With all the commands of the First brigade, Connecticut National . Guard, which have been ordered here, under canvas to-night, the brigade cimp may be said to be in effect to-night, although a bri gade guard was not detailed for duty at headquarters and the gates. After the strenuous work of the morning In the second sham fight In the valley from Oorton's Mills to the Boston schoolhouse road about all the men were willing to sleep In their hot tonts during the day. The sun was scorching for several hours, but this was temper ed later by a cool breeze. Both the reg iments had tholr guards on duty dur ing the day, and both had evening parade. , To-morrow all the commands will take up the routine ordered by Erlga- dier-General Frost, and guard mount is likely to see the field well dottod with civilian visitors. Major Isbell, of the Second infantry, will be brigade officer of the day, and with the detailing of the guards there wlU come guard in spectlons and instruction, something the men have not had to any extent as yet. There will be company and battalion drills in the morning and a review of the regiments in the afternoon by Ma-Jor-General Grant, U. S. A. Now that the sham fights are over, much praise is heard for all the com mands. The general opinion in camp is that the Second had a strong defensive position this morning, Its men in all the advance lines taking and keeping cover in splendid style, the previous day's skirmishing having taught them many lessons. The advance of the Third was well timed, and so much advantage was taken of the woods that the main force got very close to the support of Colonel Geddes and the action was one at close range. Now that these manoeuvres are over, the officers are enjoying hearty laughs over some of the funny phases of the fighting. All agree that had more am munition been served it would have been easier to have determined what and when commands were out of action But, nevertheless, the experience given the men is considered to have repaid all hardships encountered. For the rest of the week most of the men in camp will entertain. The concert at brigade headquarters to-night was glv en by the Third infantry band . CONTRACTORS LOSE.

I Trolley Connection Between the Capitol City and Waterbury One of the Re sults If Pluns Are Adopted Mayor Henney Favors Quick Action Thinks Scheme n Splendid One Trouble Over the Stylo of Hall." Hartford, July 11 The Consolidated Railway company has made its first move to establish trolley facilities for the intar-urban traffic, and to make a trolley connection between Water bury and this oity. This morning Mayor William F. Henney reoelved from Pres ident C- S. Mellen of the railway com pany a cpmmunlcatton, In which the company petitions for the right to con nect with the tracks through Imlay street and continue to Farmington ave nue, to Ford, to Pearl, to Main, to North Main, to High, to Asylum, thus completing a loop In the central part of the city without going around city hall. It is the intention of President Mel len to substitute the proposed loop for the present "dinky" engine service, the complaints made by tho patrons of the road evidently having gome effect. 1A section of President Meilen'a let ter says: "Assuming that such a permission is granted by the proper authorities of the city, we undertake, as soon as the work may be done, to prepare the tracks of the New England railroad be tween the point of connection at or near Imlay street for the operation by trolley, and the cars thereon operated to all make the loop through the streets of Hartford before outlined, substitut ing the proposed servloe for the pres ent, and that we have 'been obliged to discontinue temporarily, through the injunction recently granted I enjoining further operation of the third rail set vice." Mayor Henney considered the letter a very important one. In his opinion, in w(h!ch he was supported by many" other prominent men, the scheme pro posed Is a splendid one, and he would be heartily in favor of carrying it through as quickly as possible, provid ing some compromise regarding the style of rail to be used could be ao. compllshed. As is known, the populace of Hartford strongly object to the "T"' rail, , which is the style the com pany propose to use. , GLIUVEN TROPHY RUN.

The state has founded these schools not for assistance of tiie indiv idual alone as much as for tho as sistance of all through the individual, It is a rule of social development that the whole body is affected by the in dividual; as the individual advances the whole advances.
