FRENCH CABINET CRISIS
RESULT OF ROCHETTE
f ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH
PARIS. March 18 The first wave of
feeling over the shooting of SI. Cal
melte by Mine. Caillaux, and the sen
sational debate in the Chamber of
Deputies on the scandal arising out of
the postponement of the trial of Henry
Kochette, charged with extensive
swindling, is subsiding. Tonight Paris
is comparatively quiet.
Cold, wet weather, damped the en
'thusiasm of the Royalists, and others
who had been holding demonstrations
throughout the city. The sole topic of
conversation in clubs and cafes is the
proposed investigation of the Rochette
affair by the committee of the chamber
which will begin Friday.
SI. Juares, the Socialist leader, who
will preside over the committee, makes
no secret of his intentions to leave no
stone unturned to get at the full truth,
lie said tonight: "I shall be a judge of
bronze with a sword of steel."
According to information in the
hands of Juares, SI. Slonis, Slinister of
Slarine, whose resignation is momen
tarily expected, exercised the strongest
pressure for six months to prevent the
trial of Henri Rochette, afterward con
victed of a swindle amounting to mil
lions. Slonis was then made Premier.
It is proposed that Slonis resign "tem
porarily." There is a reason for SI. Slonis' tem
porary resignation, for it has been
pointed out that an embarrassing sit
uation would be presented by the con
frontation of SI. Slonis. a member of
the government, with SI. Fabre, a sub
ordinate official. He may resume his
office at the conclusion of the investi
gation. A similar expedient was adopted in
the somewhat similar case Leon Bour
geois who, when Slinister of Justice
I was called upon to give evidence in
I legal proceedings at the time of the
i Panama scandal.
It is understood that the Senate
j Committee is opposed to granting full
I judicial powers to the investigating
(committee as provided by the resolu
i tion of the chamber. It will, however,
'authorize taking of evidence under
j 51. Caillaux again visited the St. La-
zare prison today and had a talk with
I his wife.
LONDON", Slarch 18. The Daily
Siail prints an account of a brief in
! terview which its representative had
with Caillaux, former minister of
finance, who is described as a broken
figure, bowed, haggard and heavy
tyc4, his whole bearing tense, his
face colorless. SI. Caillaux spoke m
a low tone, giving evidence that his ,
; mind was wiung with grief.

Vote Early and Bring Your Neighbors
The friends of good government , are urged to vote
early today. Though the large First and Second Wards
have been divided and other arrangements have been
made to expedite voting, those who want to cast their
votes should vote early. You will also help the workers
who are for good government by voting early. Also for
the sake of Phoenix, will you kindly see that your neigh
bors go to the polls and vote for the candidates whose
names appear on this page ?
A FINAL STATEMENT i 0 VOTERS
Throughout the campaign of several weeks, crowned by tte election today, The
Republican has been fair to the people, fair to the candidates and fair to itself. It has
for several weeks tried to impress upon the voters the great importance of the re
sult, the beneficial or direful consequences of their action or inaction.
It has supported certain candidates for office because it believed that they were
better qualified than other candidates. It has been moved by no personal considera
tion. It highly esteems as men and neighbors some men whom it has not supported.
Its relations have been closer with some of them than with its own candidates.
But The Republican realized what every voter ought to realize, that this has not
been a fight for itself, a fight for any particular voter, but a fight for Phoenix.
Some very warm friends of this paper have felt that if certain candidates were
elected they would be personally benefitted under the new government. But we do
not believe that governments are instituted for conferring personal benefits. Gov
ernments are for the benefit of all alike.
The candidates of The Republican have been supported by it, not on account of
its personal friendliness for any one of them, not because it expected from them
any special advantage for itself or its friends, but because it believed that of all the
candidates presented, they were best calculated to give Phoenix such a government
as we said we wanted when we adopted our new charter.
Our preference for mayor has been ERNEST Y. LEWIS, because Ave knew him
to be an honest and capable man; because he is a trained lawyer, and a trained law
yer will be badly needed on the commission.
We have favored JOSEPH COPE for commissioner because Mr. Cope is a bus
iness man of strong common sense and undeviating integrity; because he has gained
the confidence of his neighbors and of the community in which he has lived for
AVe have supported DR. L. 1). DAM ERON- for at least two reasons. One of
them is because we know him, and all Phoenix knows him, to be a clean, capable,
courageous man, and the other is because he has made good as a member of the
school board. During his service on the board many hundreds of thousands of dol
lars have been spent and not a dollar wasted.
We have supported HARRY A. DIEIIL because he is a thorough-going and
successful business man; because he is fearless and has no alliance with any faction
or element which would prostitute the city government to its own uses.
Here is a matter of which we have spooken, and we would again call the atten
tion of readers to the fact that of all these candidates the relations of no two of them
had been intimate in politics, in business or in social life. It was by no concerted
suggestion that they were brought together on one ticket. It was by a spontaneous
recognition, by many, of the superior, merits of each, that the' were made candidates.
Not one of them stands for any faction or party, but each and all of them
stand together for Phoenix. No faction or party expects anything from the election
of these men. There is not a man in Phoenix who expects to get an office by their
election, but every man and woman in Phoenix may expect to get a good, square,
honest and efficient government if they should be elected.

NEW YOKK, March IS. The Le

sued by Attorney General McReynolds
under the anti-trust law, as being

McReynolds charged the Lehigh
Valley formed a coal sales company
to evade the laws.
By the sales company it has es
caped the supreme court decision
forbidding a railroad to transport the
belongings to a corporation whose
stock it owns, and whose affairs are!
mixed up with those of the railroad '.
company. According to McReynolds.
the usual decree of injunction and j
(iissolution is asked. It is under

by others against some of the rail-

Among the defendants are named: '
The Lehigh Valley Coal company,
the Lehigh Valley Coal Sales com- !
pany, Cox and Brothers Company,
Inc., Edward T. Stotesburg, Daniel G.
Reid, Charles Steel, George F. Baker !
and George F. Baer. '
By virtue of its monopoly, the com
plaint declares, Lehigh has "prevent
ed the building of any new railroads
into the anthracite region served by
it, and has kept the independent pro
ducers under the disadvantage of
having to ship over a railroad also
engaged in the coal business."
Furthermore, the bill sets forth,"
through its alleged monopoly of the
sales of coal produced along its line,
the road "completely dominates the
market at all points thereon not
reached by any other railroad, and
has power to fix, and has fixed, and
does fix, without the check of com
petition, prices at which anthracite is
sold at such points."
The bill points out that Lehigh an
nually transports about 11.000,000
gross tons of anthracite. Of that
total the government maintains more
than 82 per cent (in 1893) was ship
ped for the account of the Lehigh
Coal company or affiliated compa
nies. Relations between the railroad
and the Lehigh Coal company are set
forth at length in the complaint,
which declares that the latter never
has been a "bona fide corporation,"
hut a "mere adjunct department or

In a statement tonight, Edgar H.
Boles, general solicitor of the Lehigh
Valley Railroad company, maintains
that the Lehigh Sales company, by
which the existence and acts alleged
by the government are said to have
been made possible, is not in any
way "affiliated with or controlled by
the railroad company," although he
conceded that it is possible that the
railroad company and sales company
may have stockholders in common.
Dealing with the railroad's owner
ship of the Lehigh Valley Coal com
pany and its subsidiaries, Mr. Boles
says the matter has been .investigat
ed by the government "for more than
a generation," and that if there had
been violations of the law the gov

by this time and made them clear
to the courts.

The Gazette, under the headline, "Look Out!
Here is a Bull Moose Plot to Capture the City!' de
clares that I am a party to this scheme. This is ab
solutely untrue, as I have continually stood for a non
partisan city government. And that is where Harry
Diehl stands from start to finish. And I shall vigor
