THE "BAND OF HOPE" AND "HOLY ALLIANCE" Governor Amazes Senators With Nomenclature of Illinois Politics. By JUDSON C. WELLIVER. Here's the sort of political nom enclature they used out In the Illin ois Legislature at the time when Beats In the United States Senate were being bought with Jackpot funds: "Now, Governor Deneen," Insinu atingly asks counsel fo rthe Investi gating committee, "what did they call the legislators who stood by you and your politics?" "They were called the Band of Hope," replies the governor with a feeble grin. "It was applied to them In derision." "Ah, I perceive," drily comments the lawyer. "And by what name were those Democrats and Repub licans called, who united together to defeat your policies, and after ward to elect Lorimer?" "They were known as the Holy Alliance," replied the governor, in the midst of a mild explosion of laughter. "Also in derision?" "Perhaps; anyhow, at the next . session, in order to escape the Im putation of abnormal virtue, they became known as the Black Hand." Governor on Stand. It was an edifying recounting of 1111 nolsh political history that the Lorimer Investigators received at the hands of Gov. Charles S. Deneen of Illinois to day. After a fortnight's vacation, the in vestigation was resumed, with the ex pectation o pushing it a3 fast as possi ble. Governor Deneen will cupy the stand all day today, and perhaps con tinue tomorrow. Lee O'Neill Browne, the Democratic legislative leader who delivered the Democrats to Lorimer. Will probably follow him. Then Charles White, the legislator wno 3tarted all the trouble by prying up the lid with a confession that he was paid to vote for Lorimer. White was a Democrat, and his de tailed story of the affair started all the trouble. It was his story that started a scan dal reaching clear to the top of na tional affairs, and the defeat of va rious Senators who helped whitewash lorimer Governor Deneen's story Included an Amazing narration of how, after he and Lorimer had been bitter political enemies for five or six years, he was compelled to Invite Lorimer to his of fice, and later take him to the execu tive mansion, for a five hours' confer ence .largely on the question of wheth er he (Deneen) should be allowed to re tain the governorship to which he had been elected by 23,000 majority! Governor Denen said the Lorimer forces had vtes enough in the legis lature to unseat him. They weie thor oughly hostile.

It looked decidedly las if they might throw him out of the governorship. Consents to Conference. At that Juncture friends of Deneen besought him to consent to a confer ence with the ancient enemy who had now become so powerful that he seemed likely to determine who should be gov ernor. Deneen agreed to it. Lorimer did not want the Deneen leg llative program carried out. The in ference from Governor Deneen's testi mony was that Deneen had fears that Lorimer would go so far as to unseat Deneen and give the governorship to a rtpmocrat. on trumped-up charges. rather than submit to the passage of primary-election legislation It w-afe not a question of keeping party pledges, or of respecting the (Continued on Fourth Page.)

MADERO'S PROGRESS MARKED BY RIOTS Fretful Condition of Country Is Shown by Excitement Attend ing Leader's Journey. MEXICO CITY, July 13. Battle raged all night and until late this morning at Puebla between Mader ists and the Zaragoza battalion of state troops. Seventeen are reported dead and twenty-eight wounded. Hostilities may be resumed at any time, unless Madero himself, who is due at Puebla today, succeeds in calming both sides. The fighting began when some pedestrian fired a revolver in the di rection of the Maderist quarters. The bullet apparently came from the state battalion's garrison, and the Maderists waited not a second. Rushing to their rifles, they opened fire at once, and the state troops were not long in returning shot for shot The city has been in a state of unqualified terror since the trou ble began. Find Bombs in Attic. Excitement grew all the more intense in Puebla when Maderists, making a search along the expected line of tho Madero parade, found a number of bombs In an attic Occupants of the houso were at once arrested, and have been kept Incommunicado ever since. To add to the terror of the city, post ers were ' put during the night. In which wealthy citizens' homes were threatened with dynamite. In the event of any sort of accident to Madero to day the mob would be raised In an In stant against the well-to-do citizen here suspected of bympathlzlng with the Clcntlfico party. Riots took place In Tlaxcala last night, and on account of them Madero did not enter the city, but caused his special train to wait at Santa Anna. It is evident that Madero's triumphal progress Is being marred In various places, and that Meico still needs a good deal of pacifying. The reception prepared for Madeio at Tlaxcala had to be abnndoned because he did not enter the city. Meantime, In Tlaxcala various dis orders occurred, prominent among which was the attempt of Maderists soldiers to 6hoot Felipe Chacon, Mad erist chief of arms. Federals rescued him from his own troops, who had sworn to have his life. Why the Mad erists wero so rabid against Chacon has not been learned here. Arms Seized at Monterey. Alarming newrs comes from Monterey today. Authorities there have confis cated a large quantity of arms and am munition shipped from Chicago and St. Ixuis. headquarters of the Clentiflco juntas. The munitions of war were destined for Eagle Pass. This confirm ation of rumors of plotting in the United States has thoroughly alarmed the cabinet here, and last night Presi dent De la Barra signed an order pro hibiting Mexican custom houses from receiving arms and ammunition. Mexico City saw a good sized riot last night. A mob of 100 attacked a Spanish dram shop In the Santa Julia district and attempted to fire the building. Four clerks opened nre on the mob, klllllng two men and wounding eighteen. Funeral on Sunday For Mrs. Walcott The funeral of Mrs. Charles D. Wal cott, victim of the Bridgeport wreck, will be held Sunday afternoon at 4 p. m. at the family residence, 1743 Twenty-second street. This was decided upon at noon fol lowing the return last night of Mr. "Walcott with his wife's body, and the receipt of telegrams from the sev eral children, all of whom. It Is now expected, will be here for the funeral. The Rev. Stuart Bready, assistant pas tor of the unurcn oi tne covenant, will conduct the service. Burial will be private. Bacon Wants More Decorum in the Senate Notice was given today by Senator Bacon that he will propose an amend ment to tho Senate rules for the bet ter preservation of decorum and or der. The change would prohibit any Sen ator from Interrupting another, un less for a bona fide question, except by consent of the Senate. Mr. Bacon said the Senate had ceas ed to be a debating body. It more re. sembles a crowd of men talking- on the street corners. Some remedy should be applied, he said. a.ooo Feet Elevation.

The generally accepted theory that Engineer Curtis hit the cross-over on the viaduct at too great a speed, was challenged today by the charge 'that a partially, open switch derailed the express after It had passed the cross over safely. Coroner Wilson resumed his investiga tion Into the accident today. The road still holds to the cross-over theory as the cause. However, many trainmen, recalling that Curtis was a competent engineer and well acquainted 'with the run, advance the explanation that he was overcome by the heat before reach m? the bridge.

Atwood purchased the Ham ilton aeroplane In which his flight from Atlantlo City to College Park, Md.,-vas made, and If mechanicians can as semble It In time expects to sail over Washington between 6 and 7 o'clock this evening. He will make no landing, however. After ho has circled the city he will re turn to College Park. Atwood announced he had purchased the aeroplane immediately after he had arrived at College Park from Washing ton, shortly after noon today. The news that Charles K. Hamilton, who accompanied Atwood on his flight from Atlantic City, had consented to sell his machine to Atwood, came as a sur prose to many of the aviation enthu siasts who have been making their bead. quarters at College Park since At wood's advent. Rumors of Disagreement All yesterday and today rumors were rife that Atwood and Hamilton had disagreed. While the two aviators, ap parently, were on the best of terms, both having been guests of Dr. Bovee's last night and having breakfasted to gether this morning, those conversant with the efforts Atwjood has made since j the accident which robbed him of the r "Wright-Burgess machine Tuesday night, to obtain another machine, have been given to surmising why Hamilton did not allow Atwood to use his ma chine. They recalled that the men came here together, and that when Atwood's aero plane was wrecked last week In Atlan tic Cley Hamilton volunteered the use of his machine, and that flight here was made in it, Then came rumors of a disagreement between the two aviators, and it became known that Atwood had offered Hamil ton good Inducements for the use of his machine. But Hamilton would not con sent to it. It Is said, and his mechani cians two days ago dismantled the Hamilton machine and packed it for shipment to Atlantic City this after noon. The machine was not moved, however, from the Rex Smith hangar at the park. Assembling Machine. The announcement that Atwood has purchased the Hamilton machine Is taken by many as proof that Hamilton would not allow Atwood to use his ma- chine in any flights over Washington. Shortly after 1 o'clock today tho mechanicians went to work to- unpack the aeroplane to reassemble it, with the idea of getting It in shape for a flight at C o'clock this evening. "If the machine is In good order by C o'clock," said Atwood, "I will fly (Continued on Fourth Pass.) , SOLICITOR QgQRGE P. McCABE. LATE THIS EVENING WILEY UNDER FIRE, HINTS HE WILL GIVE FOES HARD BATTLE Food Expert Fighting Mad Because Com mittee Has Suggested That He Resign From Office. ACCUSED OF VIOLATING FEE LAW; CASE NOW BEFORE TAFT Doctor Wiley's Views On Efforts to Oust Him "I would not ndtise any one to wnit around my office to see me put out; there is no telling how long that will be. "You know that I have been fired out of this comfortable position once or twice a week for the past ten days, yet somehow I man age to stay on. Tor the present I cannot discuss the matter with you. I am still in the Department of Agriculture and if my term of service were to last only two hours longer I would obey the orders of the Secretary for those two hours. "UoweTer, if I am fired, as has been usggested, I bellere, then I might hare some remarks to make. I do not know how per tinent these remarks would be, but they might interest some people." DE. HABYET 1Y. 1VILEY. Fighting mad, but endeavoring to cover his anger under a flow of happy sarcasm. Dr. Harvey W. "Wiley, the chief chemist of the Gov ernment, this morning met the newspaper reporters who came to ask him when bis official head was to fall in the basket The rush to Dr. Wiley's office was occasioned by the publication this morning in the New York Times of charges that had been filed against the chief chemist, who, according to the report, is accused of technically violating the statute limitation on the salary to be paid for expert services. An investigation has been made by the department's committee on personnel and it has recommended that Dr. Wiley be permitted to re sign and that L. P. Kebler, chief of the drug laboratory, be reduced. SURPRISE FOR ADMINISTRATION. The publication of the trouble in the department came as a surprise to the officials of the Administration, and the White House contented itself with a short statement. White House Explanation. The statement that Dr. Wiley has not been asked to resign was authorized at the White House this morning, after the publication of the report of the per sonnel committee of the department holding the doctor guilty of conspiring to give illegal compensation to Dr. H. H. Rusby, head of the New York Col lege of Pharmacy at Columbia Univer sity. While the chief chemist has not been formally asked to resign, tne papers in the case have been sent to him by. the President, with the request that he make a defense. This defenss haB not been submitted to Mr. TSft, but it Is expected within a short time. When the reply of the doctor Is re ceived, the President will take up the case, and will finally decide whether the Government Is to lose the services of the one man who has stood stubbornly between the food poisoners and adul terators and the consumers of fcod. Wiley Not Perturbed. When seen this morning Dr. Wiley was the least perturbed man in the De partment of Agriculture. He said that he had been ousted from office about three times a week for the past ten years, yet by some means or other he has always managed to remain on the payroll. After making this characteristic ob servation Dr. Wiley talked about the innnlteslmal Influence of the Individual human being, about the constellations, the ultimate end of all things mundane, and ended up with the guess that the sun at least would remain in its place in the 'universe, even though, he, the chief chemist should lose his Job. Friends of Dr. Wiley do not remember having seen him more cheerful than he was today when he faces an adverse report from a btfard of his own asso ciates Mn the Department of Agricul ture and a still mo're adverse report upon his conduct by the Attorney Gen eral of the United States. These reports grew out of the fact that Dr. Wiley and I F. Kebler, chief of the-division of drugs arranged for the employment of Dr. Rusby as an expert at a salary of l,60u a year, to be paid to him at the rate of $20 a day for expert service, and J50 for services as an expert in court. Limit Set on Experts' Fees. An arrangement of this sort has been held to be In violation of the law. Con gress last year finding that very liberal fees were being paid for the employ ment of experts, enacted a law pro hibiting, the Department of Agriculture from paying any expert a greater sal ary than $4,000 a year. It was found Impossible to secure the testimony of Dr. Rusby, according to the charges, for less than $50 a day, despite the order of the law Hmiyng these fees to $11 a day, which Is the per diem of $i,000 a year. Dr. Rusby was placed on the payroll with the view of bringing his fees up to the original amount, the report shows, of $50 a day. This employment came to the attention of the Secretary of Agriculture on March 28. Dr. F. L.. Dunlap, acting chief of the Bureau of Chemistry, at that time, took the mat ter up with Secretary Wilson. It was then referred .to the committee on personnel, composed of Assistant Sec retary W. M. Hays, Solicitor George P. McCabe, and Chief Clerk C. C. Clark. At once, this committee called In Dr. Wiley. Dr Bigelow. assistant to Wiley; Dr Kebler, and Dr. Rusby. All of them were examined orally, and were requested also to submit written ex planations of their reasons for appar ently violating the law. Report Sent to Wilson. After a complete canvass of all the facts in the matter, the committee sub mitted a report to Secretary Wilson, in which It is recommended that Dr. Wi ley and Dr. Bigelow be given the op portunity to resign, that Dr. Kebler be reduced, and that Dr. Rusby be dismissed from the service. This re port was brief, but to the point. It found that grave irregularities had been practiced, and that t'. ose repon sible for them be made to suffer. All these papers were sent to the President by the Secretary, who In turn forwarded them to Attorney General Wlckersham for a review and a report. Makes Extended Report. The Attorney General made an ex tended report. He went in detail in to the testimony of the four employes of the departme it involved In the charges, and quot 1 their admissions to shew that they insented to an evasion of the law In order to retain the services of Dr. Rusby. Less than a week ago the Attorney General sent his review to the Presi dent. When it had been received. It was looked into far enough by Mr. Taft to s-.e that it seriously impeach ed Dr. Wiley, Dr Bigelow. and Dr. Rusby. Before acting, however, the President wanted to hear what Drs. Wiley and Rusby had to say. He, therefore, ordered the papers sent to each of these experts. Busby Puts It Up to Wiley. Dr. Pusby Immediately wrote a de fense of his action In accepting com pensation from the Government in apparent violation of the law. The burden of his defense, however, lies in unloading the whole matter upon Dr. Wiley. He said he presumed the chief chemist, knew what he was do ing when he placed him on the pay roll and that It was rrone of his, Rus by's business, how that was done.
