INTO KAISER'S HAND. English Scare Causes German Clamor for Greater Navy. [By Associated Press] \Berlin, Oct. 14.-The disclosures in France of alleged British offers of alliance against Germany are so thor oughly believed here that the power ful naval league with its 600,000 mem bers and all the apparatus of agita tion is already moving for a new naval programme that shall further increase Germany's defensive resour ces against Great Britain. Popular distrust of Grea, .i3itain has naturally swollen to great pro portions, and the semi-official denials in London can scarcely overcome the convictions now formed that Germany had a narrow escape from a war which, although she would have been victorious on land, would have result ed in her being crushed at sea and damaged along the coast, with the consequent destruction of her sea commerce.

IN FIGHT TO STAY. - District Attorney Jerome Bids De fiance to Tammany Bosses. [By Associated Press] New York, Oct. 13.--District At torney William T. Jerome, speaking of his independent campaign for re- c election and the fact that Tammany hall nominated a candidate to oppose him at last night's democratic county convention, said today: "I am in this fight to stay, and will make it ever the heads of the bosses directly between the people and my self. I repeat now that nominations of party candidates are made by one man and sometimes by a coterie of men. These men are usually selfish, wholly irresponsible and not infre quently corrupt. I do not say, of course, that all are corrupt. From what I have heard I believe that John Kelley, the former Tammany hall leader, was an honest man." ....·· ii! I. . , . ., as th ý. F!·z> p2c w s a A STRUCTURE SUBSTANTIAL New Bridge over Yellowstone at Junction-Erected by Hewett & Company. One of the most substantial struc, 1' tures that spans the Yellowstone river s is the magnificent bridge that was re- f cently constructed at the town of Junction, in the eastern part of the a county, connecting that thriving young I stock center with the station of Cus- 1 ter on the Northern Pacific. located I at the opposite side of the river. I Th* bridge was constructed by the firm of William S. Hewett & Co. of Minneapolis, whose fame as bridge I builders in the western states is not surpassed by that of any other con tracting firm. The Junction bridge \is 7 the nfth that this well known firm has erected over the great river, and every one of them are monuments of p.ermanency and stability of ..onstruc tion. e unction Bridge Described. The bridge proper, at Junction, is 620 teet long, with timber aplpoaches at each end. The center pier i q made of concrete, bound with steel rods. Bedrock at this point is about 15 feet t below the water line. A foundation for - the masive pier was obtained by driv - ing steel-pointed piling through the gravel bed of the river and into the bedrock that underlays it for a space of about two feet. The concrete pier was then built upon this piling, the n concrete extending down to the bedl of the river. The-upstream end of the pier is provided with an ice break which slopes down stream at an angle of 30 degrees from the vertical. This ice break has what the bridge builders a term a "sharp nose," and the point of the nose that faces the flow of the h water is provided with steel capping. The piers at each end of the main =d superstructure consist of steel tubes in seven feet in diameter, tapering to d- four and one-half feet at the top. 'r- These piers are sunk well below the n, bed of the river, and seven piles were Le. driven in each tube and the entire re tube was then filled with concrete. ANOTHER ONE IS LAID AT DOOR OF PAT CROWE [By Associatel Press] Chicago, Oct. 14.- illiam A. Pin kerton declared today that Pat Crowe, the alleged\kidnafper of Edward Cula by, Jr., was suspected of complicity in a well orgal ized plot to kidnap and hold for $10,000 ransom the child of a prom!nent New York railroad magnate. The name of the magnate was re fused by. Pinkerton, but he had con sidered the plot of sufficient import ance to notify the railroad man. The Cudahy kidnaping at Omaha ALLEGED KIDNAPING REVEALS STRANGE STORY OF DECEPTION [By Associated Press] Mrs. Reagan Admits Deception. St. Louis, Oct. 14.-Miss Goldie Yell of Cloquet, Minn., the nurse employed in the family of. George Reagan, Al ton, Ills., and who was charged by Mrs. Reagan with kidnaping the baby, George Howard Reagan, last Monday, was found today in St. Louis at the home of Mrs. Frank Lindhorst. She admitted her identity and confirmed the reports circulated since the al leged kidnaping that the baby is her child, and declared her intention of retaining possession of the boy. Mrs. Lindhorst confirmed Miss Yell's state ment and says she was present at the child's birth, July 30, 1903, Goldie Yell being known to Mrs. Lindhorst as "Mrs. Leo Rowe." p e The superstructure consists of two spans, each 310 feet long, with an 18 foot roadway the entire length. The steel work of these spans is extraordi- s narily heavy, made so with a view of accommodating large loads of live stock on foot. To provide against wind, and the vibration that is caused by moving herds of stock, extra stay a bracing is provided. The Bridge Opened. ',his bridge was formaally opened for travel a little more than a month ago. The didication of the steel high way was performed by Harry Scott, 1 mayor of the town of Junction, and it was indeed a gala day in that stirring village. Mayor Scott was the first to cross the bridge. He traveled in an immense wagon and was accompanied by many ladeis of the town of which he is the municipal head. Behind him came other wagons and carriages in procession, and the line of vehicles 4 was very properly flanked by a large delegation of cowboys on horseback, in full trappings. The opening of the bridge marked a new epoch in he history of the town of Junction, inasmuch as it brought together two great cattle and sheep ranging sections of Montana, and the result has already manifested itself in the growth of the town. Eventually, and the day is not far distant, Juno. tion will become by far the most im portant stock shipping point in east ern Montana. William S. Hewett & Co., the con structors, have builded many other bridges in Montana other than those that span the Yellowstone. In some instances the contract price was so L low that the firm made not a dollar, 3 but there is not a single case on rec ord where it slighted its work, or fail ed to comply with the conditions of its contract. s The Gazette is enabled herewith to a present a very handsome picture of t. the bridge in its completed form. occurred several weels after the New York plot was discovered and as the plan followed there was along exactly similar lines, Crowe's name was never entirely removed from the investiga tion. According to Pinkerton the in vestigation tended to show that Crowe had threatened to assassinate General Counsel Spencer of the Chi cago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad company at Hannibal or .t. Joseph, Mo., and then kidnap a member of Spencer's family. After being informed that Miss Yell and the baby had been found, Mrs. Reagan admitted she was not the mother of the child, but had induced Miss- Yell t'o give up the baby with the understanding that Mrs. Reagan was to pose as its mother, because Mr. Reagan had frequently expressed his disappointment at not having a son. Mr. Reagan was away from home when the supposed birth took place, and did not see the child until five weeks later. Miss Yell says ner reason for tak ing the child from the Reagan home was because she believed the Reagans had become so attached to the baby that there would be a distressing scene. A PARTICULAR HUSBAND. Wants Divorce Because Wife Put Dog H in Bed. St. Louis, Oct. 14.-Joseph H. Ames, assistant to the general manager of S the American Car and Foundry com pany, yesterday filed suit in the cir- C cuit cour. for divorce from Geraldine t C.

Gray, cashier of the Commercial National bank, today at his home shot himself twice, once under the heart and again through the brain, inflicting wounds from which he died almost instantly.
