PEKING. Oct. 31. Fighting be
tween the rebel forces and imperial
ists continues. It is believed the
rebels are making a determined re
sistance. Late advices indicate that
Hankow was not retaken by the im
perialists although General .Yin
Tchang captured the railway station
immediately to the north. Contrary
to promises railway service has not
been resumed nor has telegraphic
communication been re-established.
The fact that the Associated Press
correspondent with Yin Tchang has
sent no word from the field in two
days may indicate that the censor

Disaffection among the troops and
people has prevented satisfactory
communication between the various
sections of the loyal army. Yuan Shi
Kai started for the front yesterday
and is now at Sin Yuan Chow. The
policy which he will adopt is eagerly
awaited. Negotiations looking to a
settlement have been under way be
tween Yuan Shi Kai and the revolu
tionary leaders, but the latter, confi
dent of their strength, have expressed
themselves as having little confidence

HAVE SIX JURORS.
STOCKTON. Cal., OcL3L At the
close of today's session of the trial
of Samuel Axtell. the Lodi editor on
a charge of murder of Charles Sollars,
a Lodi business man, there were six
jurors in the box. Four of these were
secured this afternoon after 145
veniremen had been examined since
the trial begun, with only two having
been accepted. Only thirty of the
original venire are left and it is con
sidered certain that a new venire will
have to be drawn. The defense al
ready has used thirteen of its twenty
Kf-romntorv challenges. Axtell shot
Sollars because, he alleged, he be-
lived the latter circulated a story re
flecting on him in connection with an

by a telegraphic vote of the league
directors. Baum succeeds Judge Thos.
P. Graham, who is retiring because of

THEY WANT TO STRIKE.
CHICAGO. Oct. 31. A strike vote
taken recently among the employes
of the Chicago, Rock Island and Pa
cific railway favored a strike, officials
of the road were Informed today, by
a. committee representing the workers.
A conference was asked looking to
a settlement of the difficulties but
the absence of some of the railroad
officials from Chicago will prevent
this until next week. Wages and the
rallroads's withdrawal from operation
of certain shop rules are given as a
basis for the trouble. "Wage increases
of approximately ten per cent and
restoration of union shop rules will
be insisted upon at the conference,
declared the employes.
DEATH ENDS
BRIDGEPORT, Cal., Oct. 31. An old assay certificate, found on
the body of J. D. Miller, who died In a shaft In his mine twelve miles
from here, told two stories when disciphered today. One side told the
value of the gold in Miller's mine, and the other bore the pencilled
record of the man's seven-day imprisonment, which was ended by
death at noon Friday, October 13. The body was found last Saturday
with the left leg pinned against the side of the fifteen foot shaft by a
mass of rock. Miller stood upright, his head thrown back. The shaft
is slightly Inclined and Miller probably saw the sun on the meridian
when he wrote the last line of his diary.
"Noon, Friday, thirteen, no hope," the diary said. The certificate
had been folded and had been placed back in his pocket. The record
began October 6, and contained entries each day until the thirteenth.
It gave direction for tne disposition of the remains and told his wife's
address in Harrisburg; Pa. It referred constantly to "Dick," wonder
ing why he didn't come to see what was the reason he had not re
turned from the mine. The Dick referred to is Richard Barnes, em
ployed on a ranch nearby, where Miller had been staying. An un
successful attempt has been made to communicate with the widow.

of the harbor shortly after noon today.
the fleet took the same formation off

difference today was that no salutes
were fired. All the Pacific armada,
excapt submarines, Crampus and Pike
formed off Coronado, while thousands
watched the maneuvers from the sand.

CHARGE OF BLIGHTON
Perjury Allegation Is Dismissed by In
quisitorial Body After it Has
Made Investigation.
TUCSON, OcL 31. (Special). In its
first report the territorial grand jury,
late this afternoon, announced that it
had investigated and ignored the
charge of perjury against James T.
Williams, Jr. The complaining witness
In this case was F. H. Blighton.
Blighton was indicted by the grand
jury of last year for alleged libel of
Mr. Williams, whom he charged with
riding to Washington and return on a
free pass of the Southern Pacific.
Blighton subsequently filed a complaint
against Williams charging him with
perjury before the grand jury of 1910,
which had indicted Blighton. It is
this charge of perjury which the grand
Jury today announced it had investi
gated and ignored.

PRESIDENT DEFENDS
THE ANTI-TRUST LAW
Has Sharp Tilt With Martin Littleton
At a Banquet Given in
- Pittsburg.
PITTSBURGH, Oct. 31. President
Taft defended the Sherman anti-trust
law tonight in answer to an address
made by Congressman Martin W. Lit
tleton of New York, who earlier in the
evening attacked the provisions of the
law at a banquet of the Pittsburgh
chamber of commerce. It was mid
night before the president started
to speak.
This question has been eloquently
considered by my friend, Littleton,"
he said. " I regret the matter has
come up here. I savors of harshness
to have a difference of opinion on an
occasion of this kind, but I must say
what I think. The Sherman law has
been on the statute books twenty
years, has been construed, construed,
construed and finally by the supreme
court. Two decisions last spring, in
my opinion, give it a definite mean
ing that any combination in restraint
of trade with the purpose of control
ling prices and stifling- competition is
a violation of the statute. Men know
whether they Intend to stifle competi
tion and control prices and all that is
necessary in a court of law Is to prove
the intent. I would cut off my hand
before I would injure business, but
there is only one course open. The
law on the statute books must bo enforced.
GOT GRIP ON
LOS ANGELES
Socialists Polled a Surpris
ingly Heavy Vote at the
Primary Election Held in
the Angel City Yester
day. HARRIMAN SEEMS
TO LEAD. TICKET
Fight Will Now be Between
Him and Mayor Alexand
er, Who is the Standard
Bearer for Good Govern
ment Party.
LOS ANGELES, Cal.. Oct. 31. To
day's primary, easily the hottest in
the history of the city, will result.
i beyond a doubt, in the nomination of
Job Harriman. socialist, and a Mc
Namara attorney, and Mayor George
Alexander, the uood government can-
j didate. the California law providing
that the two candidates receiving the
highest vote must run against each
other at the final eletcion. which will
be held December 5.
Neither candidate on the face of
the present returns at midnight, has
received a majority of the votes cast,
which, according to law, would elect
him without further contest. Alex
ander received considerably less than
half with a few hundred scattering.
Harriman received the rest of approx
imately the fifty thousand that were
cast. The fight centered against Har
riman. His opponents waged a re
lentless campaign, the keynote of
which was the cry that his election
on the socialist ticket would seriously
hamper, if not destroy, forty million
dollars' worth of public improvements,
dependent wholly upon bond issues.
The socialist vote rose from a pal
try two thousand to eighteen thou
sand or more in the space of a few
months. Its strength is all the more
amazing because the Alexander ticket
was carried into office two years ago
by overwhelming majorities. The so
cialist councJlmanic candidates uni
formly beat tlm men now in office.
PROFESSORS TALKED AT.
DRY FARMING CONGRESS
Tho Following Summaries of Ad
dresses by Profs. Stewart and Bol
ley, at the Farming Congress
at Colorado Springs Will
be Found of General
Interest:
Robert Stewart, chemist at the
Utah experiment station.- presented the
leport of the special committee on
nitrates in dry-land soils. He said
that, according to the predictions of
Sir William Crooke. the known de
posits of nitrates in the world will
soon be exhausted and the world will
die from nitrogen hunger unless some
means is developed for maintaining
the nitrate content of our agricultural
soils. The problem is of especial im
portance to the dry districts, since a
fertile soil will produce crops with a
smaller amount of water than will an
unfertile soil. The committee asked
that it be continued for further in
vestigation, and suggested that the
Plowing under of all available weeds,
volunteer grain, winter rye. stubble
and barnyard manure and other vege
table matter will be of value for the
increase of humic nitrogen in the soil.
Prof. H. L. Bolley of the North
Dakota Agricultural College spoke of
"Flax As a Dry-Land Crop." He said
that the variety which is raised for
the production of seed for Unseed oil
purposes is especially adapted to the
dry-land west, that there are few
crops which can withstand the amount
of drouth tlrat the flax seed can, and
that it can be produced in paying
quantities farther west and higher on
the foothills of the great plains than
any other of the small grains. He
said that flax does not use as much
moisture and does not make as heavy
a draft on soil fertility as does either
wheat, oats or barley, and that the
general Idea to the contrary is based
on error due to the fact that the
crop is- frequently attacked by root
diseases which make it impossible to
grow flax on any ground that it once
infected. Flax will generally compete
with wheat In the matter of net re
turns. o

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 31. Ho
ratio Bertram Moses, aged 23, sur
rendered to the police here to
night, and said he is Maurice
Moses, a New Y'ork art dealer,
wanted there for the murder of
Steven .Brooks, the fiance of his
sister, Milicent. Moses was lock
up and the New Y'ork authorities
notified. He said he felt blue and
disheartened and was tired of be
ing a fugitive.
NEW YORK, Oct. 31. Horatio
Bertram Moses seems to be try
ing in vain to break into jail as
; a murderer, according to the New
York police. A month ago Moses
similarly surrendered himself to
the Chicago police. New Y'ork of
ficers replied that they could find
! no record of the crime. The Los
Angeles police will be notified he
is not wanted here. The police
think Moses is trying to work j
free transportation back home.
THREE MORE TENTATIVE
JURORS ARE SELECTED
Court and Counsel Are Gratified at
What is Called an Unusual
Burst of Speed.
LOS ANGELES. Oct. 31. Three
more talesmen are needed to fill the
jury box before opposing counsel be
gin exercising their peremptory chal
lenges in the McNamara case. Five of
the nine now accepted, so far as chal
lenge for cause is concerned, have
been secured in a day and a half.
This burst of speed greatly encour
aged the court and counsel. Those
qualified as to cause are: Frank
Frakes, farmer; George W. Johnson,
retired foundry superintendent; Wal
ter C. Frampton. farmer; A. C. Win
ter, builder and contractor; George W.
McKee, real estate dealer; F. D. Green,
orange grower; Robert Bain, carpen
ter: Seaborn Manning, farmer; Sam
Mendenhali, orange grower.
With twenty peremptory challenges
at the disposal of the defense, and
ten,for.the jirosecution. Jt. is consid.-.
ered unlikely that more than three of
this list will remain for the actual
trial. Johnson, Frampton, Winter and
McKee are among the possibilities for
peremptory challenge by the defense.
Frakes and one or two others are ex
pected to be cut out by the state.
Neither side would say tonight just
which man it will excuse.
Owing to the length of time already
consumed, it is considered likely that
the jury will not be completed for sev
eral weeks yet. Because of the pri
mary election today the court held
only a half session. Two of the coun
sel forJhe defense are directly inter
ested in the election of Job Harriman,
candidate for mayor, and Joseph Scott
for re-election to the school board.
Judge Bordwell announced today he
would take up before court tomorrow
the preliminary examination of the
new venire of forty men to deter
mine if any are to be excused for
ordinary reasons.

NEW YORK. Oct. 31. The end was
reached todav In the arguments be
fore the United States Circuit court on
the plan of dissolution filed by the
American Tobacco company. The de

determining whether the (plan is in ac
cordance with ruling of the supreme
court which held the Tobacco company
to be an illegal combination in re
straint of trade, and ordered that it
be dissolved to restore free competi
tion. Interest centered in the ap
pearance of Attorney General Wicker-
sham. He said he approved generally
of the plan but made some recom
mendations which met with protests on
the part of stock and bond holders of
the American Tobacco company The
attorney general declared he had
sought to bring about a iplan of re
organization which would not cause a
receivership. Outlining the govern
ment's attitude in the trust prosecu
tions he auotod from Taft's message
to congress on the subject, expressing
a desire to conserve the legitimate in
terests of property.

Right Money Was Paid
and Why Congress Was

WASHINGTON, Oct. 31 The con
nection of former Secretary of State
John W. Foster, and the late E. H.
Conger, mlniiter to China, with the
payment of J386.236, part of the Boxer
indemnity fund to the heirs of the late
General F. T. Ward, who was kliiwi
jin the Chinese rebellion of 1862, was
uie suDject or an Inquiry started today
by the house sub-committee on expen
ditures. Foster, who acted as attorney for
the Ward heirs, and who. with Robert
Lansing, obtained half of the sum as
their fees, testified that John Hays,
secretary of state, had expressly ap
proved the change in the protocol
November 7. 1901, under which China
guaranteed an indemnity fund to be
divided among the nations whose sub
jects were injured. The change in the
protocol, said Foster, gave Hay au
thority to ipay the Ward claim, al
though the claim originated nearly
forty years before the Boxer rebel
lion. It is admitted the heirs had practi
cally exhausted every means at th!r
command to influence the Chinese
government to pay the sum before the
Boxer trouble originated. Through
the efforts of Minister Conger and
former Secretary Foster, the Chinese
government was induced to ask the
American consul's sanction for the
payment of the claim from the Boxer
funds. Chairman Hamlin and Rep
resentative Dent, of the. Investigating
committee, are unable to understand
by what authority Hay was able to
divert the Boxer funds without tho
authority of congress.
