Disaster at the Carnegie Steel Plant Good Prospect For Winter Wheat Burglar Shot Dead State Teach era' Association Rigging of the Re liance Increase of Public Debt. President Roosevelt began his West em tour Wednesday. He addressed G.000 people in Chicago Thursday ev ening on the subject of the Monroe doctrine and attended a banquet it the Auditi.rlum. Friday he was the guest of the Milwaukee Merchants and Manufacturers' association at c banquet, covers being laid for 630 peo mp. After the banquet the presidenl Took occasion to give his views on "Trusts," leaving for Minneapolis aft er midnight. In his speech at Milwaukee the president spoke of the anti-trust leg islation enacted by the last congress especially the creation of a department of commerce and labor with a cum niissloner of corporations charged with supervision and control of the corporations encaged in interstate commerce, and alao of the anti-rebate amendment to the Sherman law. He declared the legislation enacted was adequate for the present, and prom ised its rigid enforcement. He spoke of suits brought by the attorney general against the sail trust of California and against 11 railroads of the Middle West restrain lng tli era by Injunction from furthei violation of the anti-rebate and Sher man laws. Suits were also brought against some of the Southern railroads which had formed a pool Injurious tc the interests of the cotton growers He also spoke of the suit against the moat packers' combine. These suits he? said, had accomplished their pur pose. Ho also spoke of the suit be gun at the request of governors of the Northwestern states asuinst the al leged merger of the Great Northern find Northern Pacific railroads, which suit Is still pending. The Cuban reciprocity treaty, the Philippine tariff, the question of re adjustment in domestic tariff rates and the trust problem were some of the matters upon which President Roose velt spoke at Minneapolis. His own opinion may be summarized thus: We owe something to Cuba and we got something In return; and it is well tc go ahead carefully In revising the tar iff in order that business conditions may not be disturbed any more than necessary; while, on the other' hand: we must not forget that as our needs change it may be necessary to meet the changes by changes In the tariff laws. While the president recognized that changes might be necessary, he urged the avoidance of frequent fluct uations In the tariff, believing that sta bility was important as well as ad justment to changing conditions. The most enthusiastic reception ever tendered any man in the "Twin Cities" was that to President Roose velt on Saturday. From the . time he arrived undl his departure from Minneapolis at 11 o'clock at night for the West he ; was the recipient of a continual ovation,' the streets through which he passed In both cities being a solid mass of people and Armory hall at the university of Minnesota being crowded to its limited capacity. President Roosevelt was the guest of Sioux Falls, S. D., Sunday. The president attended church hoih in the morning and evening and In the after noon went for a horseoack ride, ac companied by Seth Bullock, superin tendent of the Clack Hills forest re serves. The speech, which was on tariff and reciprocity, brought out much enthus iasm, the president treating extensive ly of the Cuban situation, declaring that we must have military control ol Southern waters, and Baying that the United States Is the most prosperous nation ever known. It was considered a great speech and the crowd pushed forward to shake his hand, which was denied them. The special train i which the pres ident left for bis Western trip was furnished by the Pennsylvania rail road. It has been specially decorated and equipped for the trip. It consists of six cars, manned by a picked crew, with Conductor William 11. Johnson, who has been with the president on many trips, in charge. The president's private car, the Elysian. has a parlor and observation compartment, three state sleeping rooms, a dining car, two sleeper sec tions, a kitchen and sleeping sections for servants. The trip will costlnue from April un til June 5, nine weeks and three days. During the time the president will travel about 11,000 miles. John Bur roughs, the pi:ct-naturalist of Now York, will accompany President Roose velt until he arrives at St. Ixniis, mak ing the tour of the Yellowstone park with him. Mr. Burroughs will then re turn to New York. President Nicholas Murray Potior I Columbia university will join the p.irty at St. Louis and will be Hie president's guest until he arrives in California. When that state is reached the presi dent will be joined by Benjamin Ide Wheeler, president of the Univer sity of California, who will accom pany him through the stale. Burglar Shot Dead.

Disaster at Carnegie Steel Plant An accident at furnace I of the Ed gar Thomson plant of the Carnegie Steel company at Braddock Tuesdas Is expected to prove one of the worst In the history of the plant In the num ber of deaths resulting. Twenty men were Injured, six ol whom are dead and 10 are In the ho3 pital aiid are not-expected to recover. The other injured went to their home and are suffering from painful burns. The accident was caused by a "hang" In the furnace dropping and forcing large quantities of white hot dust down a large pipe Into a pit where the men were at work. The victims, caught like rats In a trap, were with out means of escape and all were burn ed and blistered over their entire bodies and large strips of flesh peeled off their bodies when they were pulled out of the pit by fellow workmen. The bodies of the fatally burned could scarcely be recognized as such, They were blackened or shredded in strips by the white hot "down com-jr" dust that burned Into their flesh. Many of the men had large blotches burned through the flesh, caused by the large splashes of molten Iron that had struck them and burned through to the bone. Furnace I Is equipped with the fa mous electric "skius ' that are now used on all United Slates Steel corpor ation's blast furnaces. Record Breaking Yield of Wheat Reports of failures show the small est number of embarrassments In the first quarter for 20 years past, and the smallest liabilities In 16 years. Prospects of winter sown crops were never better, a record breaking yield of winter wheat being predicted for the country as a whole. Export trade continues excellent, particularly In cotton and corn. Retail trade Is expanding, favored by spring weather, and Jobbers report orders from retailers increasing, while collections note some Improvement Some price revisions are to be noted, particularly in raw wool, coal, pig Iron, copper, coffee and sugar on the Atlantic seabord. The activity in lumber Is a notable feature just now, the only complaint being of deliveries not being suffi cient to meet current demand. Quiet is noted in the Eastern whole sale drygoods and Jobbing trade, but an excellent spring business has al ready been done. Strikes ' in Lowell have induced a waiting attitude among' cotton goods buyers, but tend rather to strengthen than to weaken values State Teachers' Association.

PENNELL A DEFAULTER, Said to Have Swindled Eastert Investors. Secret cf His Lavish Expendit"rei With Little Visible Means of In come Sealed Instructions Left ti Administrator Provides For Mrs Burdick Dispute Over Two Policies ButTalo, April 7. The Commercia publishes the following stoiy: Arthur R. Peanell, who was accusec of tho murder cf Edwin L. Burdicl and who v.as killed in au automublli accident on March lOtb, was a do faulter to the extent of $150,000 o $200,000, according to authentic infor mat ion. He swindled estates of friendi in the east out of large sums of money He carried ever $200,000 life Insuranci in order that after his death those es tates might bo able to recoup ihi lc3ses which they had sustainet through him. This Information comes from a re liable source, which, however, owlnj to a pledge which has been given, can not be divulged at this time. Incidentally, It has been learnoc that Pennell made provision for :h payment to Mrs. Edwin L. Burdick u $25,000 cut of his life Insurance. The means by which Pennell do rived an Income that was sulhclent U enable him to spend in the neighbor hood of $20,000 a year has been 1 mystery in this city for a long time Years ago, Pennoll's most intimate friends, who were familiar with tin legitimate sources of his income mar vcled at the lavishness cf his persona expenditures. Pennell was carryin; life Insurance which was costing hlti In the neighborhood of $7,000 a year His heme was a luxurious establish ment He owned an automobile, pat ronized a fashionable tailor, traveled 1 great deal, and, in fact, lived like 1 man of wealth. Legal Business as a Side Issue, He practiced law, but his legal busl ness was a,8lde issue. He never seem ed to have any cases in the courts and was not known to be connector! Id a professional way with any large estates or interests of any kind thai would requlie bis services as an at torney. There had been a suspicion among a few of Pennell's most intimate friends for some time that a good part of his income had been derived thiough bog t: investment schomes and that his wealthy friends and re latives in the East were the victims But there was no proof that that was so. Some time after his death It. begar to be rumored that Pennell had swindled his friends and relatives Ic the east. It was stated that they sent mone) to him to be Invested In bonds anc mortgages and In various mythical m terprlses at fancy rates of interest and that Pennell, instead of Investing the funds, had used them himself and had averted disclosure of his crooked work by paying the Interests on the fake investments. This story now has been found to be substantially true, except that, so fai as can be learned, he did not swindle any of his relatives In the East, al though it is understood that his wife' relatives are among the victims. The story of Pennell's extensive swindles leaked out as the result of a legal dispute over two life insurance policies. It seems that there were twe policies taken out by Pennell whief were not handed over to the adminis trator of the estate. One of them was for $15,000 issued by the Prudentla Insurance company and the ether was for' $10,000. issued by the Mutual Mfe Insurance company. These two poll cies had been assigned by Pennol' to Attorney Wallace Thayer in trust In one .he was referred to at "Wallace Thayer trustee, and lr the other he was designated Wal lace Thayer as trustee." There If quite a difference between the term "trustee" and "as trustee," and the Insurance companies, which did not care- to be held liable In the evenl that they pay the money over to the wrong person, took legal counsel In the matter and held up payments Mr. Thayer ami the attorneys for one of the Insurance companies talked the matter over. J. Frederick Pennell administrator of the estate, also wai called In, and Mr. Pennell insisted or having more information before he would consent to the payment of anj Insurance money to Mr. Thayer at trustee. Plan to Commit Suicide. It was then that the story of Pen neil's heavy defalcations and his plant to commit suicide were made kno.vn The' $23,000 insurance money as signed to Thayer by Pennell in trust is supposed to be paid over to Mrs Burdick in accordance with the pro visions of the bond for $."i0,odo whirl. Pennell gave prior to his death. Thai is the bond which Hurdi-k found in the Ikix which his wife rented in Ho vault ) of the safety deposit rumpany Mr. Tliayrr won't talk about it. It 1 fact, he has declined to give evei the administrator of PeiineH'g cstat any Information concerning it. Mr. Pennell, the administrator went to Mr. Thayer for the purp.iRe ol finding out the nature of his trust, ns it was his duty as administrator tr do. Mr. Thayer wouldn't talk. Il( said Pennell hail left .sealed ins' ruc tions advising him a.: to how he was to dispose of the $25.0011 and .that, a; a lawyer, who could not dhulge the nature of that trust. Mr. Pennell urged that as adminis trator he was enti'led to know the at ture of the trust before he could con sont to have the money paid over Mr. Thayer still refused to say wha the trust was. Thc-mas Penney, attorney for tin Pennell estate, accordingly charger. the Insurance companies to pay ove no money to Mr. Thayer. The pro!: ability Is that the $25,000 will be pale Into tho courts unless the life insur ance companies take a chance on pay lng it either to Mr. Penney or Mr Thayer. The attorney s who are interested It the Pennells or the Pennell estatt claimed that they knew nothing abou Pennell's alleged defalcations. The) did not deny that the story was trie They simply said that Pennell brother, who had been named In tin will i.s administrator of the estate, hat been given secret sealed instruction! left by the dead man, and that the ad ministrator had properly refralneK from giving any Information relativi to those Instructions. Wallace Thayer, who was Pennell'i attorney and Intimate friend, said h had suspected that Pennell had swind led people In the east, but that hi hnd no proof of any such wrong do lng. GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE. Special Communication to Legislature on Mortgage Tax. Albany, April 7. In a special mos sage sent to both houses of the legla lature Governor Odell emphasizes !ili views of tho importance of some legls lation at this session upon the subject of taxation of mortgages. "That an evil exists In the presem! system of mortgage taxation," he says "is manifest, and that it Is a burden upon these who cannot escape, upor widows and orphans whose money h tied up in trust estates, should lead the legislature to lake Into consideration the necessity for action and attempt in twme way to correct this condition "If it be by the total exemption ol mortgages from taxation, if that be the conclusion of the legislature I am ready to give to It my sanction and ap prcval. If It be by imposing a smal yearly tax. either 4 mills or 2 mills am willing also to go to that extent because I believe that is so much near er right than the exlstinglaiw and thai it wmld meet the approval of the citi zens of the state. If it be by Imposing a recording tax, affecting only futtir mortgages, I am willing to lend mj approval and assistance In that dire? tlon. But I believe that the leglslnt tire would be recreant to the trust re posed In It if an adjournment should occur without a correction of the evIN to which I have directed attention. "It may be asked, where Is themoney to come from that Is necessary tc continue the exemption from a direcl state tax upon the property of the state for state purposes. Two an swers to this question are apparent First, greater economy upon the part of the legislature; secondly, we .ire perhaps within a million or two mil lions of dollars of the fulfillment of the promises made by the dominant party In the legislature to the people of the state In the last p.irty platform. II a recording tax of 2 ?nills or ZVi mills were imposed upon the future mnrt gages, It would produce all the revenue necessary and we could go before the peo'ile complying with their reasonable and just demands for Improvements without curtailing anything that may be necessary and without indulging In extravagance In government. "I am so impressed with the neces slty for some art Ion upon vour part, that I take this opportunity of calling It to your attention. Sensible of the obligation which confronts those of us who are charged -.vith the administra tlon of the state's affairs, and of the Justice, equity and the right that a remedy phculd bp found for this cry ing evil, I feel confident that some so lution will b arrived at by those who are In control of the legislative af fairs of I he state that, will not only per feet, the existing law. but which will redound to the credit cf those who an Instrumental In bringing it abcut." Sergeant-at Arms Arraigned. Newark, N. J., April 7. George P. Powell, former sergeant-at-arms of the New Jersey house of assembly, who was Indicted for conspiracy In connec tion with the Grate church robbery some months ago, was arraigned. He p'crded not guilty and was released In $l,0('i bail. Died After Reading of Hiyh License. Catsktll, April 7. Charles M. Gar rigan, salcon keeper at Coxsackle, suddenly died at his home on Sunday. At the inquest Mrs. Garrigan said her husband retired after reading the high license comments In the papers, when he remarked: "Well, I'll have to go out of business." A Hint For the Future. "It Is a source of Kiviit happiness to 1110, my elciir," remarked Mr. Baxter to his life's companion, "that no one can ever with truthfulness point to you as n woman with a past." "Yes.
