BRIDGEPORT, CONN..WEDNESDAY, APRIL 14, 1909 PRICE ONE CENT. 1 mtma DOTEN BELIEVES POLICE HAVE BEEN NEGLIGENT Coroner Moved to Sympathy by Sufferings of Patient Child Whose Hold on Life Was Tenacious. Is Not Satisfied With! Police Investigation and Will Make Thorough Inquiry Boy's Ante-Mortem Statement is Valueless as Evidence. Those responsible for the death of .Michael Kosa, the ten year old boy, whose pitiful sufferings have attract ed the sympathy of all who came in contact with him, will not escape, if Coroner C. A. Doten can bring the guilt home to them. At 3 o'clock this afternoon, an inquest will be held, by order of the coroner. Medical Exami ner F. B. Downs will perform an autopsy, to learn, if possible, the exact extent and nature of the injuries from which the little fellow died. The coroner is much disatisfled with the conduct of the police, and this morning was exceedingly frank in his statement or his views-of the way they have managed the case. Coroner Doten believes that the po lice are making light of a case which is serious to the last degree. In hia ante-mortem statement. Kosa said that he was kicked in the abdo men by Henri Bycel. a Hallett street merchant, several weeks ago. Accord ing to the little fellow, he and several other little boys were playing in front of. By eel's store, when he was pushed inside. Then, he says. Bycel. kicked him so hard that he sat upon the side walk, unable to move, for some little time. - . - Unfortunately the statement is of no value as evidence, because it was. not uttered in the fear of death. The boy distinctly said: "I do not know that I am going to die. I hope to get well." Tho poor little chap never did get well. His hope that he might possibly lias destroyed the only means of reach ing those responsible for his injuries. The immediate cause of death is ascribed to tubercular peritonitis. The Injuries were of such a. nature that th hnv uld not receive nourishment. nor retain the food which was given ' LAUGHS AS SHE WRITES DEATHLETTpR Mrs. Harper Asks Husband How to Spell Words of Her Last Farewell. -'I'm Sick ofThis life," Only Clue She Gives to Motive for Act Second Letter is Addressed to Woman Friend. While the deadly influence of an unce of laudanum taken with suicidal intent was stealing over her. Mrs. Jen nie Harper sat at a table in her pretty home on Main street and laughed and joked with her husband as she wrote a farewell letter to him. "How do you spell ." she laugh ed, and rising from her chair she pass ed into the bedroom adjoining, and threw herself on the bed wearily say ing. "Ob. never mind." The husband. Richard A. Harper, followed her into the bedroom and spying an empty bottle, labelled "laud anum," on the bureau, grasped the situation. "My Clod Jen, you have not drank this, have you?" "Tea I have, Dick," was the reply, as the woman lapsed into unconscious ness. Mrs. Harper died at 6 o'clock this morning, at the Bridgeport hospital, where she was taken in the ambulance after Dr. Harry R. Bennett had ex hausted his skill in an attempt to save her life. Mrs. 7arper was 31 years old and the wife of Richard A. Harper, a skill ed paper hanger and painter, who pro vided a good home for himself and wife, for they had no children. (Continued on Second Page.) BANKS DEFINES HIS ATTITUDE Speaker is Not and Would Not be Candidate for At torney General Business Demands More of His Time. Speaker Elmore S. Banks of the louse of Representatives who has been regarded as one of the strongest of the likely candidates for the nomi nation of Attorney General on the Re publican ticket next year, announced today that he was not a candidate for the position and would not accept the nomination if it was brought to him on el gold platter. Judge Banks' law business has been growing rapidly of iate and it is a fact that he has been compelled, by reason of his public du ties, to neglect much of it of late. With Daniel Davenport and Attorney (William A- Redden he is associated in the practice of law with offices in this city. In addition he does most of the legal work for the town of Fairfield and he is retained in litigation outside the State. It is believed that Judge Banks intends to devote more time to ills law business and less to politics In the future, although it would sur- Kise none if he rounded out his po icaJ career with a term in the Sen -ate which would probably mean that Ate would be Senate leader and chair Imii t tte Judiciary committee. to him. Coroner Doten said, in an interview with a Farmer reporter, this morning: "This is a serious case, although the police are trying to make light of it. There are features which have not been explained fully to my mind, as yet. Captain Arnold believes the old man's story, but I cannot allow this case to be dropped without an investigation. To further an inquiry. I will have an inquest held this afternoon at 3 o'clock when Medical Examiner Downs will perform an autopsy upon the body of the boy." "Young Kosa, about ten weeks ago was playing with a number of boys on Hallett street near his home which is in the same block as Bycel's notion store. One of his playmates threw his cap into Bycel's store, and when he attempted to get it, it is alleged that Bycel kicked him in the stomach. The kick was not considered serious at first, as he went to school for two weeks af ter receiving it. He was then in bed for four weeks. Afterwards he was removed to the hosltal. where he died last evening. Bycel is an old man with a long flow ing black beard, about sixty-five years of age. His wife conducts the store on Hallett street, while both of them have rooms in the rear of the store. He devotes most of his time to study, go ing over the history of his ancestors, the Hebraic law and the Talmud. It is said that the man is very weak and of very light stature. The claim is made that on the day in question a number of children were in front of the Bycel store, tormenting him by pounding on his door and throwing rubbish inside, that the door was opened 'suddenly by Mr. Bycel and in the scramble which followed, young Kosa received an injury to his stom ach. Not by 'being kicked, but in the scuffle in which the other boys partici pated. GOV. LILLEY PRACTICALLY OUT 0FDAN6ER This Is Statement Made To da By One in Authority at Executive Mansion Miraculous Improve ment in Condition. Seems to Be Some Uncer tainty Regarding Real Diagnosis of Chief Execu tive's Complaint Had Never Been Troubled With Heart Affection. (Special from United Press.) Hartford, April 14. It was learned today from one in authority at the exe cutive mansion, that Governor George L. Lilley, who has been hovering be tween life and death for the past week, is practically out of danger. The almost miraculous improvement in his condition which started on Sunday, has continued unabated and his removal to a more 'healthful climate is not far distant. The following formal bulletin was issued today by Dr. Graves: "Last night was the fourth successive good night experienced by the Governor since his illness. His pulse and tem perature continued to indicate progress and the internal organs are function ating naturally. The Governor is tak ing nourishment regularly." So marked is the improvement in the Governor's condition that Dr. Graves would return at once to his home in Waterbury but he feels that he should stay at the Governor's side for at least a day or two so that the public will know that the Governor is receiving every attention it is possible to give him. There seems to be some uncertainty about what the real diagnosis of the Governor's complaint is. It is said that he primarily suffered a nervous collapse which temporarily affected his heart. The Governor has never been troubled with heart trouble before and that organ had apparently been in good condition except for the condition wnicn the nerve collapse put it in. The kidney trouble also induced by the nervous condition, has practically abated. Dr. Beach is no longer in constant attendance at the bedside of the executive, but makes frequent calls. WALL STREET TO-DAY. (Special from United Press.) New York. April 14. 11 a. m. The slight weakness in the first few min utes was due almost wholly to selling of stocks because of lower early Lon don cables and expectation of a con tinuation of the reactionarv feature of yesterday. Arbitrase brokers and other brokers apparently were await ing for various pools and cliques were heavy buyers from the start. This buying caused a general upward move ment and at the end of the first hour prices generally showed net gains ranging from fractions to over one point. 11 a. m. Trading and price move ments in the first few minutes were mixed and irregular. There was some liquidation in leading issues resulting from the losses sustained yesterday. The Gould stocks were again promi nent. A strong tone prevailed at the end of the first twenty minutes of trading. Government bonds unchanged; other bonds strong. Chicago. April 14. James A. Patten, so-called "Wheat King of' the World", today announced his intention of clos ing out his bis lino o wheat. YOUNG TURKS IN ARMS TO REGAIN POWER Their Cause Greatly Weakened by Loss of Army ContqTand Gross Corrup tion But Will Make Desperate Attempt New Danger in Turkish Mutiny Devel oped Today in Military Opposition to Qilma Pasha's Successor as Grand Vizier Great Fear That Fanatical Mohammedans May Wage Another Warfare on Christians. (By Bysantius Moschopuslous, Staff Correspondent of the United Press.) Constantinople, April 14. (Via Philip popolis, Bulgaria.) The new war min ister, Edhem Pasha, appointed yester day to succeed Ahmed Riza. to-day succeeded in getting the mutinous regiments of the First Army Corps to return to their barracks. The action has resulted in a temporary quiet be ing restored but the situation is far from relieved. A new danger developed to-day in the military opposition to Tewfik Pasha. Hilmi Pasha's successor as Grand Vizier. As long as this opposi tion continues. Tewfik Pasha will be unable to re-establish even the semb lance of a stable government. Though Edhem Pasha and Tewfik Pasha are nominally in control of the situation, the real ruler is Abdul Hamid, the Sultan, who ,is working through the League of Mohammed. He is rapidly assuming his old grasp on the empire and it is feared that if he is completely re-established, he will wreak terrible vengeance on the Lib erals who are fighting against a return to absolutism. The abolition of the constitution is one of the possibilities of the immedi ate future. Leaders of the Young Turks are now in night toward Saloni ca where they will organize and make a desperate attempt to regain their power. The loss of their control of the army, however, and the recent development of gross corruption in their ranks have greatly weakened their cause and it is not believed that they will be able to make a formidable movement at present- The Young Turks have sworn to kill the Sultan if he swings too far to the opposition, a threat that those who know the daring of the Young Turks do not doubt that they will execute. Wild rumors spread through the city to-day that the Sultan had been mur dered by agents of the Young Turks but no confirmation of this is obtain able and the report is discredited. The religious phase of the uprising favors the Sultan as he is the head of the church and as such is venerated By the people despite the widespread political differences. Despite this, the Hamidian iynasty is recognized as being ex tremely insecure owing to the fact that it is dependent at present on the wile of an army that is not sufficiently armed or controlled. There is great danger of the fanati cal Mohammedans taking advantage of the disorder to wage another warfare on the Christians. A reign of blood would follow such a warfare as the Christians, including vast numbers of Armenians, are armed and able to put up a desperate resistance. Fully sixty persons have been slain since the present trouble began, among the number being Minister of Justice Nazim Pasha and Deputy Emir Ur slan. Nearly all of the members of the former cabinet are in hiding. The mutineers are demanding the execu tion of Hilmi Pasha and Ahmed Bazi, but the former leaders are under cover, and cannot be found. Another dark aspect of the situation is the private feuds and endless mur ders that are sure to result from an overthrow of the government. While the trouble is not of an anti-foreign character, the foreign residents of the city are fearful for their lives on ac count of the general confusion. All the foreign powers have instructed their embassies to take every possible precaution to protect the lives of the people under their charge. Reaction ary uprisings are reported to-day in Aleppo, Damascus, Uskub, Dibra and practically throughout all of Albania. The government offices are in a state of such wild excitement that none of these reports can be verified. It is also reported that Russia is seizing the opportunity to begin an advance across the Persian frontier. It is expected that Tewfik Pasha will be able to announce the personnel of the new cabinet in a few hours. Aside from the minister of war, the only ap pointment so far confirmed is that of Rifaat Pasha, who will continue as the minister of foreign affairs. The selec tion of Tewfik Pasha and Ahmed Pasha are wholly satisfactory to the Liberals. Tewfik Pasha is trying to reassure the people that there is no thought of abrogating the constitution. It Is ex pected that the new ministry will adopt a compromise between the An archistic idea of governmental favor by the Young Turks and the old side of absolutism. The Liberals will de mand not only a readjustment of the country's financial affairs but better protection of the Mahometan religion, the growing disregard of which was one of the chief causes of the uprising. Sofia. April 14. The Bulgarian cabi net is holding a special session to-day to consider the advisability of mobo lizing troops in Turkey. The over throw of Hilmi Pasha, former Grand Vizier of Turkey, indicates a propitu ous time in the opinion of the cabinet leaders to attempt to wrest from the new ministry the recognition that has been so long denied. There is a strong sentiment in favor of a hostile move against Turkey if she delays long. President and Mrs. Taft Are On Their Way Washington. April 14.

The return trip of the Tafts will be begun from New York at mid night Thursday. INCOME TAX PLAN OF THE DEMOCRATS Party Senators Met in Con ference at Washington This Afternoon to Con sider Democratic Pol icy on Tariff Bill. One Interesting Proposition is that Democratic Vote Should Be Lined Up Sol idly in Favor of Amend ment for Horizontal Re duction of All Rates in Bill By 20 or 25 Per Cent. To Raise Balance of Revenue From the Rich. (Special from United Press.) Washington, April 14. When the Democrats of the Senate meet in con ference this afternoon to consider their policy on the tariff bill, several mat ters of importance Will be brought up. Perhaps the most interesting of these is the suggestion that will be made that the Democratic vote should be lined up solidly in favor of an amend ment for a horizontal reduction of all tho rates in the bill by twenty or twenty-five per cent. This is expected to be approved. Whether the Democratic conference agrees to this as a party program or not it is known that such . an amend ment will be offered. In support of the proposition its friends point out that the Republicans claim that they have so arranged the tariff schedules in their bill as to equalize the duties, between the raw material and the different stages of manufacture, and as between the different sections of the country. If, therefore, a hori zontal reduction of say 20 per cent, is made, the Republicans cannot say that it would produce irregularities in the tariff. The necessity for such action will be defended upon the ground that it would relieve the tariff burden on the people. If it is objected by the Republicans that such action would result in reducing the revenues below the necessaries of the government the Democrats will argue that they pro pose to raise the balance from the rich. An income tax. which they will offer, will 'begin on incomes of $5,000 which are to 'be taxed 4 per cent. This tax is to be increased gradually on larger incomes. ... The Demoorats claim that there are from twelve to fifteen Republicans from the West and Middle West who will vote for such a tax and that with a solid votjf .from their own party it could be carried. Another matter that will come up at today's conference will be the at titude of the Democrats towards the debate. Of course the Democrats will insist upon having as much time as they deem necessary to make plain their position, but there will be no at tempt to unduly delay the final pass age of the bill. There will be no at tempt on the part of the minority to form a substitute bill because it is realized -that such a course would give the Republicans an opportunity to at tack and put the Democrats on the defensive. By offering amendments to uncertain schedules, however, the Democrats hope to make political cap ital. When the Senate meets tomor row Senator Aldrich will probably open the debate on the bill with a brief statement. The most interesting part of his re marks, it is expected, will be his esti mate as to the amount of revenues he expects to be raised under it. This he has been carefully preparing with the aid of a treasury expert. MR. TAKAHIRA WILL NOT VISIT SOUND BOTTOM But J apanese Ambassador Will Visit Submarine and Attend Board of Trade Banquet. Contrary to expectations Baron Takahira. the Japanese ambassador, will not take a trip along the bottom of the Sound in a Lake submarine tor pedo boat, when he comes here next Friday to attend the 32nd annual ban quet of the Board of Trade. This its because the submarine. "Lake," now in this harbor, is without a crew. Capt. Simon Lake, the inventor of the boat and president of the company says that his trial crew is now in Europe. But this will not prevent the baron from going aboard the "Lake and inspecting the craft, which will be done in connection with a trip to the company's shipyard, Friday afternoon. The baron will arrive in the forenoon and be taken to at least two of the local factories before lunch time. All "Yellow Peril" scares will be relegated to the rear by the Board of Trade at the banquet. The walls of the dining room will be draped with 14 Japanese emblems and many American banners. The ambassador will be ac companied by K. Midzuno. Japanese consul general, at New York. Persons desiring to form parties of four or more, witir taDies Dy tnemseives, can do SO by communicating with Charles L Gulick. at the plant of the Ameri can & British Mfg. Co. RAIN COMES IN TIME TO EXTINGUISH FOREST FIRES Winsted, April 14. The heavy rains early today extinguished the destruc tive fires which have been raging in the woods throughout the State. In Hartland Hollow yesterday afternoon a fire started on a farm and in addi tion to burning over about 100 acres of valuable timber land, destroyed a barn of tobacco, causing a loss of about $1,500. A number of homes were threatened by the flames and some of the more timid removed their house hold effects. The flames, which start ed from the sparks of a bonfire, were not extinguished until late last night. There was no insurance on the prop erty destroyed. MORRIS IS A CLAM DIGGER TAYLORJMPLIES Accused Responds That Clam Digging is a Worthy Occupation. Incidental to the Occasion the Harbor Master Discusses the Moral and Spir itual Qualities of Clams in a Compar ative Way. Harry Taylor, major of Corps of En gineers, following the precedents estab lished by a late president of the Unit ed States, for persons temporarily, or permanently, out of favor, has infer entially relegated Harbor Master Charles H. Mouris to the status of a clam digger," and "Morris is in doubt whether to feel offended, or otherwise, because he says1 that his association with clam diggers has been uniformly pleasant, while his association with United States officers has sometimes made him feel that something was lacking from the companionship. The interchange of correspondence between Major Taylor, the United States officer in charge of these wa ters, and Harbor Master Morris, has been characterized by a flavor of vin egar, lemons and the puckery taste of persimmons ever since they came into disagreement over the harbor line. But, heretofore, the more or less acid amenities have been exchanged through the newspapers. The "clam digger" episode, however, is the fruit of a personal correspondence, relative to regulations for the drawbridge be tween the mainland at Seaview ave nue, and steepiecnase island, jreorge Tilyou's great amusement enterprise. The letter relating to these regula tions is Ave closely written type pages long. The portion which is especially directed at Harbor Master Morris is in substance a lecture upon his absence of authority to secure the enforcement of United States Laws. The "clam- digger" phrase is reached near the bot tom of the third page, where the doughty major informs the tenacious harbor master, that so far as the en forcement of United States laws are concerned all citizens are alike, wheth er they aife "clam diggers, ox harbor masters." The laneuajre is in such arrange - nlain to TTarhnrT merit as to make it plain to Harbor Master Morris that he is consigned in the estimation of the government of ficer to the plane of a "clam digger," but what bothers him1 is that he doesn't know what kind of a clam digger. There are several kinds known to , sea farers, 'professionals found mostly on Long Island, semi professionals, who dig them for the maflratr-:, "pottera " who dig them to eat, and amateurs, who dig them for fun. Said Harbor Master Morris this morning, "I don't think it is very im portant whether I am, or am not, a clam digger, or whether, or not. Major Taylor wants me to know that I am one, or wants me to know that he thinks I am one. "As far as J know, clam digging is an honorable occupation. I would rather be a good clam digger than a poor harbor master. I would rather be a clam digger than a clam. But I would rather be a clam than be some people that I know. Clams are nice, and quiet. They do their duty in the station of life to which they have been called. They give the same kind of service to a citizen that they give to a railroad magnate. They do not wear uniforms. They are not inflated with a sense of the dignity of being a clam. Clams do not call names. Clams are not raucous. They are not opinionated. Sometimes they swell up, but not with pride. "In short," concluded the harbor master, "I am not sure but that a steamed clam, which has lived a good life kent earlv hours, and behaved it self, is in every respect a desirable associate and worthy of praise." FACED TRIAL WITH BABE IN HER ARMS (Special from United Press.) New York, April 14. The spectacle of a woman hardly more than a girl with her six months' old baby boy in her arms, on trial for her life, was presented today when the trial of HodV, irnt for tne Killing or ur. Samuel Auspitz was commenced before Justice Blanchard. Tne unwritten law enters largely into the defense of this frightened, ignorant little foreign er but it masquerades under the name of emotional insanity. Through her attornsy she admits the killing but declares that she was driven crazy by her sufferings at Dr. Auspitz's hands. She still argues that while em ployed by him and anxious to become a trained nurse so that she could earn money to bring her widowed mother from Russia to live with her, he drug ged and ruined her. The baby is his child, she sa:-s. With the consent of the court the prisoner pleaded guilty to manslaugh ter in the first degree. She was at once remanded for sent ence until Friday by Justice Blanchard who was presiding. Under the law she can be sentenced to from one hour's imprisonment to twenty years The plea was determined on only after the special panel haW been drawn from which to se'ect a jury.

JUDICIARY COMMITTEE GOT STRANGLE HOLD ON PUBLIC UTILITIES BILL Measure Which is Favored by State's Repre- sentative Business Interests Await Early Interment. (Special from United Press.) Hartford, April 14. The public util ities commission measure is very ap parently on its way to the legislative graveyard. Details were completed last week and to-day the joint committee on judiciary took up the matter in ex ecutive session. While it is not stated just what the figures of the vote were or indeed that any actual vote was taken, it is well understood that nearly all of the nine members present were entirely opposed to any public utilities commission at the present time. Representative Higgins of Winsted was absent as was Representative Ma lone of Bristol. Both are here to-day. and the judiciary committee will again take up the subject in executive ses sion this afternoon. Mr. Higgins is opposed to the measure.
