i Rosseau who Is believed to beeducated be educated

is 1 g evidently e IdentI under Und er the impression n that
he 1 will be able to outwit the police

Rossenu is a stranger in this city
He said that he belongs to a society

The one one topic of conversation n in inof of ¬
ficial fic aI circles cIrcl stot1ay today Is the resignation of
Fourth Assistant Postmaster General
Bristow who suddenly stepped down
and out yesterday afternoon
Br Bristow istow has been an interesting figure
in Government life for several severalxears years
He has made m de friends and he has made
enemies
As an Investigator of corruption he
has earned a a high reputation for vigor
and honesty I
No one has ever questioned questi ne his integ ¬ l
rity ri sit and the enmity of those who hate
him is due to his ruthlessness In tread ¬
ing on the toes of the men higher up
when occasion demanded
i
That he should have hopped out of Ms i s
chvr ch > so Quickly comes < as a great sur ¬ I
prise r1se to all who know him we wen ll
Resigns in in Anger
I
Upon his failure to prevail upon Presi ¬
dent Roosevelt to change the action of
Postmaster General Gener l Wynne Ynne in amoving r I1oving
the postoflice Insp Inspectors ectors from under the
control co trol of the Fourth Assistant Post P st ¬
master General and placing them di
rectly recti under the Postmaster General
Mr Bristow went to the White House
yesterday esterda afternoon accompanied by
1
Senator Long of Kansas and resigned
the position which has kept him so con ¬
spicuously SPIC ousl before the public 1mb liC eye during
1 the past eight years
Mr Bristols resignation will take
effect or January r 20 o when he will be ¬
come com < special D clal commissioner to investi ¬
gate freight rates for the Panama anama Canal
Commission
This position n nwas was created for Mr
Bristow by b the th President when he found
that the Kansan was too angry lngr to re re
main longer In the Postoffice Depart ¬
ment Secretary Taft was called in by by
the President and it was decided that
I Ia a competent man was needed to Inquire
into the rates over the transcontinental
railroad for the benefit of the Panama
Canal Commission
Government in Control
The Government is now practically practIcall in
control of the Panama Railroad and of
the steamship line from Panama to
New York on the Atlantic These lines
together tog ther with the Pacific Coast steam steam ¬
ships shIpshav have > been controlled heretofore
by b the Huntington system which has
fixed the transcontinental rates
So hasty hast was the creation of this po ¬
sition that only a per diem compensa ¬
tion tieR was fixed by b the President Mr
Bristow will receive actual expense expen > e
and S15 Sl 15 a day with a stenographer st < J1ographer at S3 5
a adu day
It was with difficulty dlfficult that Mr Bristov Bristo
was prevailed upon u on to take even this
positiou so s angry an < r was he and so < < ldter ter

He was finally prevailed preva 1e upon b by the

President to take up the work wor for the

The master builders buildersbilI bill continues a a
subject Of unceasing interest and at ¬
tention in the circles most likely to be j
affected by b it and opinions regarding regc ding
the th measure are widely divergent
In the brief period of five minutes
three men men expressed three v views Jews not
one of which was like either of the
others One said the bill was right
the second declared it was an outrage
on the community and the third averred
he would not walk a square either to
have it passed or defeated
The majority of persons who are ask ¬
ed for 1 r their views fight shy of It it some
pleading that tha they have not sufficient
ly I informed infcrmedthems themselves hes as to the scope
of the proposed legislation while oth
ers say sa they the dont wnat to mix in the
nght Men engaged in what is called
speculative building are especially
averse to giving givIn an opinion o inion for publica ¬
tion While they are almost to a
man opposed to tothebiJIAhey the bill bih1they they are afraid
that a public declaration to that effect
will ili give them a n black eye in the
Building Inspectors office
Mr McCarthys Views
One of the persons seen today toda with a
view Iew to getting an opinion was William
S McCarthy of the real estate firm
of R R O Holtzman
Its not a good measure said Mr Ir
McCarthy lIcCarth If it becomes a a law it will 1
increase the price of every kind of re re ¬
pair work to be done on nhouses houses Now
if anything is needed In the way of
repairs on any house for which I am 1
the theagent agent or o of which I am the owner
I can send my carpenter carpenterand and have the
thing done
If the bill passes I must apply to
master builder He will send his fore ¬
man and the foreman will send some
body bod else and there will be all sorts
expenses until in sheer selfprotection 1
the owner of the th house will be OmDClled
to raise the rent in order to insure
reasonable reasona ble return on his investment
Stop Speculative Building
If the proposed law will check heck
is known as speculative building as
claimed then of course it will ill
affect the real estate market for
class of property now absorbed in
kind of building will willnot not be in
alid ld prices will be affected all around
while hile owners will have to pay
upon unproductive unpr ductve property or build uild in
dividual houses for which 11ich they the will b be
c compelled to charge high rents

Ev Evidence idence Important
Several points p polr i its ts In the evidence idence adduced
today are regarded as more important
from the sta s tar1PQint ndpoint of f the protestants
than In favor f vor of Senator Smoot t
Although Althoughthe the witnesses gave much ten tes ¬
timony timonyp praising ri singtheMormonpeople the Mormon people with
their tendency to mind their own bus bud
ness nessetc < etc the persistence o of the wit ¬
nesses in keeping secret the penalties
for violating = the endowment house oaths oaths
seemed to t show that there Is something
which h ch the thelrIormon Mormon Church leaders would would
not like to have publicly ub1icly known
This view was emphasized by the fact
that the witnesses r although a1thou h declaring
themselves no logger l ger members of the
Mormon Mormon Church Churc still hold themselves
subject to its rules ru1esandsecr and secret t oaths

Incident which has come up frequently
In the case He salr > E E B R Critchlow
who was was active last spring In aiding al g
the protestants prot stants r had come to to see him
before Angus Anguswassubpoenaed AngusrvmsS was subpoenaed and that
witness itn s had not corroborated the rumor
about Abraham Gannon on
Witness Witnessgae gave favorable answers to
queries qu rles about the Mormon people The

The witness seems to have been
been brought here for the purpose ot
discrediting Mr Critchlow Cr itchlow Angus Can
son on came here and udmltted ir that he
had made the statements and then add
ed that he had lied It seems seems that the
present witness has been brought here
for or the sole purpose of implicating Mr

perjury and I think the witness better
