Storfol Detective Who Gave
Calhoun Double Cross
For Stealing Information From
Office of Detective Burns
by Whom He Was Employ
edThe Money Offered as
an Exhibit.
San Francisco, May 26. "The art of
slipping the double-cross" was the
designation applied by one of the
attorneys in the trial of Patriot Cal
houn in today's proceedings, and the
testimony which related to the ex
periences of a prosecution agent who
was simultaneously employed by
oth sides, illustrated the objection
interposed by Attorney Earl Roger
of the defense, who made the remark
in question.
John G. Law lor, an assistant em
ployed by W. J. Burns, head of the
prosecution's, bureau of special agents.
was the principal witness of th-; day.
He charged that Luther G. Crown,
who already has testified to his ac
tivities in behalf of the president cf
the Un1td Railroads, had enip-. ;.vd
hi.u U supply information pr 1
iii li urns' office, and had paid !.!.

ration's at-nt h"id several times in
vited him to enter Brown's bathroom
in the St. Francis hotel, where Law
lor found various amounts of money
deposited in a soap eish. The w.t-
ness testified that he had taken all
the money cff?ied in this manner
and Ass!3t-.nt District Attorney
Francis J. Hent-y placed in evidence
four enveloues containing gold coirs
which the wltnt said he marktJ in
the presence of the district attorney
and an assistant.
Twice the itnes charged Luther
Brown with the declaration that "the
people behind me don't care about
Abraham Ruef," and on one occasion
Lawlor testified that Brown had said:
"Ruef may squeal again, and tell
more than he did before."
The witness was subjected to a
lengthy cross-examination by Stan
ley Moore, of the defense. Mr. Mooore
forced Lawlor to explain all his mo
tives and reasons for entering the
employ of Luther Brown in the inter
est of the prosecution and he repeat
edly impunged the sincerity of the
"At one meeting," testified Lawlor.
"Brown told me that we werj in po
sition to pull off a coup d' etat; we
could unhorse the prosecution and
boih go on a long vacation. He said
that his people were tired of the
prosecution and had .spent a great
deal of money."
The witness testified that on the
occasion of tls final interview with
Brown at tha latter's San Ieandro
home he had been paid $150, one of
the payments alleged to ha-.-e been
identical with the money introduced
in. evidence.
It developed today that the detail
of peliee assigned to duty in the
court room had undertaken to search
all persons connected with either side,
who were suspected of carrying arms.
Harry Lorentzen. an employe of the
defense, well known in this city as
"The Banjo Eyed Kid" was arrested
on a charge of carrying concealed
weapons Just before he was called as
a witness in th case. Several other
men were searched as they approached
the entrance to Carpenter's hall, but
were permitted to enter, as they were
discovered to bo unarmed.
San Francisco, Cal, May 26. Su
perior Judge Sewall this afternoon
granted the petition of the district at
torney for a modification of the writ
prohibiting the opening of the package
of documents taken from the safes in
the offices of the legal department of
the L'Dite Railroads some time ago
during a raid by agents of the district
attorney under the authority of a
search warrant.
Judge Sewall decided that the seals
on the package which, it is alleged,
contain the reports on jurors in the
graft cases stolen from the office of
W. J. Bums and sold by one of his
employes, may be broken. It is the
intention of the district attorney to
put Police Judge Deasy, who issued
the search warrant at the reqpest of
BurnB, on the stand in the trial of
Calhoun and have him testify regard
ing the documents.

A Spectator Causes an Accidsnt to
Baldwin's Balloon.
North Arlington, N. J.. May 26.-
Captain Thomas F. Baldwin's flight in
his new dirigible balloon was marred
this evening by the carelessness of a
spectator. He seized the guide rope,

The Extensive' Ultimate Plant of the
Yuma, Ariz., May 26. (Special) It
is authoritatively stated that construe
tion work by Karr, Kester & Speese
on the railroad from Yuma, through
the Yuma valley, will begin immedi
ately on completion of the survey.
Ties and steel rails will be on the
ground, and will oe laid as fast as the
grading is completed.
The Karr, Kester & Speese company
is the largest railroad construction
firm in the southwest. They own a
large acreage under the Yuma project
and have several hundred head of
stock and a complete grading outfit
on the ground. Freight.and passenger
terminals in Yuma have been secured.
The location of the depot has not been
fully determined, but probably it will
be one of two points convenient with
the Southern Pacific.
The incorporators have a petition
before the council of Yuma, asking for
traction franchise through the
streets of Yuma. Should the franchise
be granted, a modern interurban trac
tion system traversing the surround
ing mesa and valley lands will be put
in and will extend to a town site lo
cated on the Mexican border. It is
proposed at an early date to extend
the main line across the Mexican
boundary, through the state of Sonora,
to a fine harbor on the Gulf of Cali
The extension, wll open transporta
tion for a 30.000-acre . tract of mesa
land in northwestern Sonora, irrigated
by the high-line gravity canal of the
Yuma, project; also 200,000 acres of
fertile bottom land along the Colo
rado river.
Several hundred Boer families from
South Africa will soon colonize in
northern Sonora. The railroad will
top the colony. Eventually the rail
road will be built south along the
Gulf of Guayamas. Closing the gap
will shorten the rail route between the
City of Mexico and San Francisco by
several Irondred miles.

They Want, They Say, a General and
Proportionate Reduction of Rates.
San Francisco, May 26. It has been
decided that two delegates each should
be selected by the commercial and
business organizations to meet on
Wednesday afternoon for the organiza
tion of a committee of the whole, em
powered to seek support for the fight
that is to be waged for lower freight
rates to the Pacific coast.
In liciissing the cnmrni.Tn, Mr.
Wheeier said that the light was not
being made against the interior cities,
such as Spokane and Reno; but, on
the contrary, the bureau would will
ingly woik for lower rates for them
also. He said that what the coast
shippers wished was that rates from
the west to these points should be re
duced in proportion as the rates from
the east are lowered. J

Epsom, May 26. The Epsom Derby,
the classic event "of the English turf,
the blue ribbon feature of the racing
season, was run here today and won
by King Edward's Minoru. In this
victory the famous bay colt has made
history, today being the first occasion
on which the greatest of all races on
the turf has been won by an animal
belonging to a reigning monarch.
W. Raphael's Louviers was second.
and Lord Michelham's William IV was
third. The betting on Minoru was 1
to 2; on Louviers, 9 to 1, and William
IV. 20 to 1. Minoru is a bay colt, by
Cytlene, out of (Mother Siegel.
The American crack. Sir Martin,
owned by Louis Wlnans, an American
resident of London, and bred in Ken
tucky by John E. Madden, of whom
so much was expected, fell. Minoru
scored the victory by a head only
while half a length separated the sec
ond and third horses. The victory of
the king's horse was greeted by an
outburst of enthusiasm . the equal of
which has never before been witnessed
In Epson "
The crowd at the course was wild
with excitement and broke through the
police cordon and almost mobbed King
Edward, as, following the time-hon
ored custoir. his . majesty, . as owner
of Minoru, led the champion into the
paddock. -
Richard Croker, who n'andered about
the paddock alone, with his hands in
his pockets and cap drawn over his
eyes, must have contrasted the tumult
today with the silence that fell over
the stand when he led Orby IL the
winner of 1907. The king entertained
sixty members of the Jockey club at

Throughout this territory the dam
age done was of minor consequence.
Several small fires were started by
overturning stoves and many chim
neys were razed. Aurora is said to
have suffered particularly in this re
spect. In Chicago the shock was generally
felt, but was attributed to ordinary
causes, such as the passage of street
cars, elevated trains, etc. The dam
age here was confined to the break

were shaken from mantlepieces and
On the outskirts of this city sev

An 111-Advised Preamble to a
Resolution Offered in the
Presbyterian Assembly De
ploring the Lack of Relig
ion in the Home. :
Denver, May 26. A resolution de
claring that, "Whereas, Family worship
is a thing of the past," came near
disrupting the General Assembly of the
Presbyterian church today, when the
innocent-looking sentence was discov
ered by Vice-Moderator Holt.
There was under consideration at the
ltme the report of the commlttte on
publication and Sunday school work.
and several amendments had been of
fered- to the recommendation of the
committee. Dr. James H. Frazer. of
Baltimore, offered a resolution calling
on ministers in view of the fact that
family, worship had become a "thing
of the past" to organize the youth lnr
to more efficient Sunday school work
ers in order to bring them more ef
fectually into the care of the church
when they grow older.
.The "thing of the past" sentence
caught the eye of Vice-Moderator Holt
who said he believed the resolution to
be all right with the exception of the
"worship" clause. A half-dozen
watchful commissioners were on their
feet asking if the objectionable sen
tence would stand. Upon this sign of
trouble. Dr. Roberts, the stated clerk,
made a quick correction, using the
word "neglected," and trouble was
averted. . , - -
The report of tha standing commit
tee on foreign missions was adopted.'
Dr. Howard Johnson, of Colorado
Springs, who spoke on the report, said
there were more than five hundred
million heathen yet to be converted,
and he broached the feasibility of ev
ery one thousand communicants send
ing one missionary into the field.
Dr. George B. Stewart, president of
the Auburn Theological Seminary, pre
sented the report of the educational
committee. He pointed out the lack
of religious training in the horn.
Resolutions were adopted deploring
the dismissal of Robert Watchorn,
former commissioner of immigration
at Ellis Island, and the action of the
Belgian government In prosecuting W.
H. Morrison and W. H. Shepherd, both
missionaries in the Congo district.
But Prices Throughout the List. Were
Generally Lower.

steel today followed the daily custom
it has established- now by more than
a week of selling at a new high rec
ord on each successive day. Yester
day and today, the addition to the
record has been only Ho and today
this was shown only on the opening
sales. After that the price, moved
with the rest of the market to lower
prices. Most of the proceedings of
the day at the stock exchange con
sisted in trading . in Reading or in
watching the transactions in that
stock which overshadowed the whole
market and weighed on it with de
pressing effect. A lively speculation
in copper industrials abroad resulted
from the condition of the metal, but
New York coppers were unresponsive.
The break in the. price of wheat was
equally without influence on . stocks.

Springfield, 111, May 26. Congress
man Wm. Lorimer of the Sixth con

. The- election of Lorimer came about
through a coalition of democratic as
semblymen and the anti-Hopkins re

through the. hour preceding the close
of the deadlock was crowded: with a
host of persons. Strong efforts were
made by former Hopkins' aides to
head off the break to Lorimer, but
they were unavailing.
The vote of Mr. Shurtleff, the nine

Lorimer, made the 101st vote, the vote
which made the election of Lorimer ab

not vote were Daley and Hope, with

The New Kansas Reformer
Demanding a Lowering of
the Rate on Sugar Declares
That He Is the Best Friend
of That Industry.
Washington, May 26. For more
than seven hours today the senate
discussed sugar, as that subject is
involved In the pending tariff bill.
Beginning with an effort by Sena
tor McEnery, of Louisiana, a demo
cratic protectionist, there were four
sets of speeches." Three supported the
sugar schedule as reported from tho
committee on finance, while the fourth
was a plea for material reductions.
Completing his speech of yester
day, Mr. McEnery made an earnest
plea for a stiff protection not only
because of the necessity of such pol
icy in the interest of revenue, but
because, he declared, such a course
would render the United States in
dependent of other countries. He as
serted that there had been a change
of sentiment in the south on the
subject of protection.
. Mr. Burrows,- of Michigan, and
Mr. Smoot of Utah, both members
of the finance committee, also spoke
In support of the committee's action.
Mr. Smoot presented a carefully pre
pared analysis of the situation and
Mr. Burrows appealed more particu
larly to popular sentiment
Mr. Bristow, the new senator from
Kansas was the only advocate of a
reduction in the rate. He presented
an amendment eliminating all refer
ence to the Dutch standard in de
termining the grade of sugar. Re
ferring to the attitude of the so
called "progressive" senators, Mr.
Bristow declared "that instead . of
wanting to destroy the sugar in
dustry they were the best friends of
that ' Interest as they were of the
protective policy. Their desire, he
said., was to prevent graft and greed
on the part of the trusts.)
