SETTLE DISPUTE BY INJUNCTiQ Ask Judge Ingram to Keep Southside Out of Primary. WILL FILE TWO PETITIONS TO-DAY Legislative Muddle Arising From Annexation of Manchester Will Be, Decided in Law and Equity Court?Dr. Rucker Is Washington Ward Petitioner. For the purpose of seeking a Judl tlul decision of the muddle which has arisen over the election of a mcrnbei of the Legislature from what wai once the city of Manchester, two bllh of Injunction will bo llled this morn? ing at 3:-'i0 o'clock before Judge John K. Ingram. In the Law and Equity Court. Argument Is expected to bt had at onco, and tho case will bo sub? mitted. It la hardly anticipated that Judge Ingram will render his decision Immediately, but It In expected that he will hand down an opinion prior to July T, which Is the last day for the tiling of numes of candidates for the Genvr.-.l Assembly from the city of Itlchmond. The petitions for Injunction will be llled by Willis C. Pulliam and Philip V. Cogblll, of South Itlchmond. They have been prepared, with the exception of the name of the petitioner from the north side of the river, whose Identity had not been positively deter? mined last night, but who will be secured early this morning. Dr. Ed wln T. H?cker, a physician of the riouthslde. will bo the signer of the petition from that part ot the city. Decided LnM Week. This solution of the question, first proposed by City Chairman Miles M Martin, was agreed upon at a meet? ing held at noon last Tuesday In hi? office. The fact that two petition? for Injunction would be tiled was pub? lished In The Times-Dispatch on Wednesday. General satisfaction Is expressed over the coming solution of what has been a vexing question during the past few weeks. There are no contending factions over tho mailer, as the only wish is to settle the problem In a legal way, so as to determine what Is best to be done. There Is hardly a doubt, however, that most of the peo? ple of Washington ,V,'atd desire' to vote .19 usual this year, as part of the legislative district composed of the old city of Manchester and the coun? ties of Chesterfield and Powhatan. and. therefore, the Interest In the matter has been great. Naturally, also, the candidates north of the river had rath? er not have the situation complicated by the advent of u large body ot new voting citizens in their district. On the other hand, they have' been faced by opinions such as was ex? pressed by Major Martin to the effect : that Manchester has lost Its Identity and has no political entity, and that therefore its citizens must vote with Richmond, thus proportionately re .TtTcIhg the representation of this city in the General Assembly. The arrangements to have the case heard this morning In the Law and Equity Court were made yesterday morning. Subject .Mutter of Petition?. Dr. E. T. Rucker. the signer of one of the petitions, will set forth to th? court that he Is a citizen and votet In Washington Ward of the city of Pichmond; lhat said ward was until April 15. 1910, the city of Manchester; that the General Assembly, In Its ap? portionment of the State, had desig? nated that Manchester should be a part of the Sixteenth Senatorial District and a part of the legislative, district of which the counties of Chesterfield and Powhatan comprised the remain? der. Further, that the City, Democratic Committee has called a primary to be held In Richmond on September 7 1011, for the nomination of two can? didates for the State Senate from the Thirty-eighth District, and of five can? didates for the House of Delegates from the city of Richmond. i Therefore, the petitioner prays that inasmuch as the General Assembly, which Is the supreme power over mat? ters of Its membership, has not taken cognizance of the annexation of Man? chester, said city shall he regarded as still a part of the old legislative dis? trict. Also, that the City Democratic Committee of Richmond be enjoined and restrained from holding a primary electlon In Washington Ward on tho date named, or from printing the names of candidates for the Senato from the Thirty-eighth District or for the House from Richmond on the tick? ets to ba used In said ward. The petitioner from the city of Rich? mond will sot forth the same facts He will further assert that It Is tho plan of the City Democratic Commit? tee to permit 600 or 700 residents of Washington Ward, not legal voters of tho city of Richmond, to participate in the coming primary, to tho prejudice and injury of the rights of the peti? tioner. Therefore, that the committee ho enjoined from permitting the peo? ple of Washington Ward to cast their votes In said primary and from count? ing any such votes, if cast, or making returns of same.

An Executive Session Is Held. Washington. D. C, .June '-'6.?Shad- : owed for weeks by detectives Instruct? ed to get anything possible against him, was the alleged experience Whior Clarence S. Funk, of Chicago, star wit- : ness In the present Lorlmer Invcsliga tlon, complained to-day to the Senate committee Inquiring into the Lorlmet j election. The statement produced u i sensation, because the name of Ed- | ward Hines, whom Mr. Funk had tes- i j tilled had asked him to conirliiutf j $10,000 toward "J1O0.O0O used to put i Lorlmer over at Springfield," was men? tioned In connection with the service.. of the detectives. Mr. Funk declared that four dctec-. lives had followed him to Washington and two had watched him during luncheon to-doy. One of them, he said, had been compelled to give his name and that of his employer when caught In a tight place. Mr. Funk declined to break his word to the detective and reveal his name. Me -said the 'jmplo.vi.-t was not Senator Lorimer. The committee ended the day's hear? ing by going into executive session to consider the situation. lteveuln lilt Nome. At the executive session Mr. Funk s said to have revealed the detec? tive's name and promised to produce him before -the committee to-morrow, if possible. The committee then took up a consideration of what steps .to take to prevent detectives Interfer? ing with witnesses before tho com? mittee. Mr. Funk's statement about the de? tectives came at the close of a lon& examination on the witness stand. Me retold the story he related to the Helm Investigating; corhroittet In' llllnoU about how Mr. Mines Is alleged to have asked him. as general manager of the International Harvester Company, to contribute $10,000 to the Lorimer fun.l. For hours attorneys and members of the committee had asked question af? ter question of him about this con? versation, the report of which prob? ably led to the present- investigation of the Lorimer election. The witness had described his personal relations to Senator Lorimer, Mr.. Hines and many others figuring in the case. Rather Incidentally, Mr. Funk re? marked in answer to a question that his part In the case had been any? thing but pleasant, and that he had been promised more "unpleasantness." "Promised more?" repeated Senator Jones. "Yes, over the telephone and by i anonymous communications, indirect j threats have been made." I Then, in response to inquiries of Senator Kenyon, Mr. Funk said he had been followed by detectives ever since he testified at Springfield before the Helm committee. "Seemed Nice Fellow." Mr. Funk told about the detectives following, him to Washington and about getting the name of one of them. He said the detective he had cornered claimed to be employed by the Thiele Detective Agency in Chi? cago, and had been Instructed to gel anything he could on Mr. Funk. He protested against being made to re? veal the detective's name because "he seemed like a nice fellow, said he was not proud of what he was doing, and had a family to support." To tell Iiis name, Mr. Funk said, would mean his dismissal. "If you don't tell it, all four will probably lose their Jobs," suggested Senator Gamble. William J. Hynes. of counsel for Senator LorirTier and Edward Hines. urged the witness to reveal the name. "Put Mr. Edward Mines on tlie stand, and ask him to whom the detectives report each night," responeled Mr. Funk. Attorney Elbrldge llanecy. of coun? sel for Senator Lorimer, asked if the I detectives said tho Senator employed ! them. "No. Senator Lorimer did not em? ploy them," declared the witness. ] The committee then went Into exe? cutive session. NO FAVORITISM INTENDED All Mexicans Free to lie Candidates for Presidency.

WAYNGWJPEN FOR GEiYLRAL FIGHT La Foilette Leadu Anti-Reci? procity Senators in Attack on Agreement With Canada. Denounces Newspapers for Their Selfish Attitude in Supporting It. Washington. June 2?.?The Canadian reciprocity Ulli emergeu from its tlrst ordeal In lh;' Ser.ute ib-nlght unscath? ed. The Root amendment, proposing a modification of the wood pulp and print paper section of. the agreement, was defeated alter tieyen hours oX de bale, by an overwhelming vote. The friends of the amendment were so sat? isfied of its defeat that u roll call on tho \o:o was not demanded. This leaves the reciprocity measure open to the general fight that Is to follow for amendment Of Important provisions of the Payne-Aldrich tariff law. Senator JLa Folleite announced, In a speech opposing the Root amend? ment, that he. would giv>; to the Senate a chance to pass on general tarlft amendments for free paper, free lum? ber and lumber product?, and for re? ductions In many other schedules. Sen? ator Clapp also announced his inten? tion of offering a free paper amend? ment later; and other Senators gave evidence of their purpose to force, from now on, consideration of tariff revision on the widest plane. Attack* Uli ileusurr. Attack on the liool amendment was Interspersed with attacks' on the whole reciprocity measure in the debate that ran throughout lite afternoon, and which resulted In the defeat of Sen? ator Root's proposal to change the House bill by requiring tnai all Cana? dian provinces should remove their ex? port restrictions on pulp wood and Us products, before the reciprocal fea? tures ot the woo.l pulp and print papei section of the agreement went into ef. feet '"I am opposed to this so-called reci? procity legislation as. a whole, because I believe u Is. wrong,- harmful and un? justifiable." said Senulor La Follette Senator La Kollette declared there was no justification for any duty on print paper, To coniinvj* u high tariff on paper, hu sain., -.vaa to ;iut u prem? ium on "inefficiency and sloth." and to make the protective tariff "deaden all constructive force" for the develop? ment of efficient management. Senator La Follette criticized the newspapers for having urged the re? ciprocity measure as a means of get-| ting relict from the > oppressive charges of the print paper manurac--' turers. He said they had joined with the "packers, the railroads, r:ie flour' millers and others who would secure advantages through the passage of the reciprocity bill." Senator La Follette declared that in the testimony taken by the Finance Committee It would be shown that the newspapers had suppressed the news of the reciprocity proceedings; but on this point Senator Stone, who also Is b member of the Finance Committee, de? clared the Wisconsin Senator was mis? taken. "Blackest Pngc" In Their History. "That Is the blackest page In tho newspaper history of the United States." declared Senator La Follette "1 regret that that fact must become part of the history of this legislation But it Is a stubborn fact. There Is no one who followed the hearings before the Finnnce Committee but knows that those who favored the Canadian agreement were given great space; but when the agricultural Interests came before the committee, making a great showing of the Injury they would suffer, a showing which I con? sider the most Important made before the committee, the news filled hut mea? gre space In the great newspapers of the country." "I want to interrupt the Senator,' said Senator Stone, "not to defend tho newspapers, hut because I think his statement is not quite justified by tho facts. It was charged that the Asso? ciated Press, for example, had given great space to the pro-reciprocity lit? erature and to the pro-reclproclty con? tentions, which the newspapers had greedily accepted and widely exploited. "The facts as developed show, as I understand them, that far more space was given the antl-reclprocity argu? ments by the Associated Press and hy the newspapers of the country than was given by either the'one or tho other In favor of reciprocity." Senator La Follette expressed the belief that other members of the Finance Committee would side with him In the controversy. Senator Clapp. of Minnesota, opposed I the reciprocity bill as a "deception, n [ delusion and a snare," and said the j Root amendment would but make II worse. Senator Simmons, Democrat declared the bill was not a Demo cratic measure.

He does not count upon immediate suc? cess for his efforts, however. With the Root amendment to the [ wool, pulp and print paper schedule of the bill disposed of to his satis? faction, Mr. Penrose, after a canvass of the Senate, unnounced that his plan had met with more encouragement than he had anticipated.

Secretary of the Interior Fisher, by approving the de? partment's decision as handed down by Fred Dennett. Commissioner of the Land Office, has restored "to the pub? lic domain the thirty-three Cunning? ham claims Involving an aggregate area of 5,250 acres and running In value high in the millions. While Attorneys for the Cunning? ham clalmants have .threatened an ap? peal to the United States Supreme Court, such an nppeal can be based only on some point of law Involved and not on findings for fact, us an? nounced by the department.

In announcing the decision of the department to-day Secretary Fisher, who succeeded Mr. Ballingcr in March last, declared that new coal land laws are needed In Alaska if that territory is to be developed properly, in a state? ment the secretary said: "This is a final decision of the Cun? ningham claims so far as the Depart? ment of the Interior is concerned. Any further proceedings will be merely* formal for the purpose of perfecting the record In case the claimants "think there arc questions of law which they desire to present to the courts. It Is my understanding that It is concerted that the findings upon the facts hy the department are conclusive. "It Is the. Intention of the depart? ment to proceed at once to a final de? termination of all the remaining Alaskan coal claims so far as (his can properly be done, denying those that should be denied and granting those that should be granted as rapidly as possible. "I do not believe the present laws applicable to coal lands In Alaska arc wise or practicable laws. Nevertheless, their provisions must be on forced; first, hecnuso they tire the law, and second, because they afford the only protection to the public welfare against tho abuses of monopoly and unrestricted prlvnte exploitation.

Knows That Jewels Were J Smuggled Into Country. [Special to The Times-Dispatch.] New York, June 26.? For tho first time since she has been under the lash of her critics. Mrs. Helen Dwelle Jenkins struck back at them to-night. - To a reporter In her apartments at the Wellosmore, she told frankly and unreservedly the remarkable story of her relations with the man who travel? ed through Europe with her as her husband, under the name of J. W. Jen? kins, who, she says, is none other than Nathan Allen, of Kenosha, Wls., or? ganizer or the Leather Trust, many times a millionaire and old enough tu be her father. Mrs. Jenkins said that she would . soon cause suit to bo instituted against Allen and members of bis family to recover the face value of stocks and other valuables which lie gave her, which at his direction she placed in a safe deposit vault In Chicago and which wore abstracted from the vault as mysteriously as her more than $300,000 worth of jewels were stolen from her apartments In the Loraine Hotel In this city, December 11. 1909. The face, still glrli-.. when, Illumi? nated by enthusiasm, in spite of this young woman's unusual career?she Is now less than twenty-three years old?took on momentarily an expres? sion of hatred, suspicion, scorn. In a moment, though, she began to show the animation that had heightened her natural beauty. Wants I'roperty Returned. "All I ask of Mr. Allen?pardon me, I meant Mr. Jenkins," she said, "Is that he return to ine the more than $150,000 of property ..hlch mysterious? ly disappeared, from the safo deposit'" box in -the Illinois Trust Company, in which he. advised me to place the securities, after he had given them to me. Just when the securities wero taken 1 do not know. Nor do I know who,took them. I do know, however, that Mr. Allen as well as myself had a key to the box. "He niay have turned this key ovei to somebody else when ho left Chicago October 3, 1909, on a trip to Europ? with his wife. In fact, 1 think I have reason to beltovo that he did leave the key in other hands when he left the country. 1 have not seen him stncn he went away to Europe with his wife I had known him then exactly eigh? teen months. In that time he showered upon nie jewels of the value of moro than $300.000. a splendid house on the lake front In Chicago, money In un llrheted amounts for my dnily wishes, besides the securities, for which I re? gret exceedingly I may have to sue; him. I have nothing but the kindest recollections of Mr. Allen. He was always good and kind and superbly, generous In his treatment of me. "It was at his urgent request that I accompanied him to Europe. We left here on the Kr?n Prinzessin Ce celie April 21, 1909. I had known him then exactly a year. \Ye were accom? panied by John R, Collins, of Mem? phis. Tenn., a lifelong friend of my family, who had been especially kind to me until Mr. Allen and his family turned on me so suddenly. We went over as Mir. and Mrs. J. W. Jenkins. I have no idea the amount of money he spent on me in Kurope In the pur? chase of diamonds, sapphires, pearls, laces, lingerie, gowns, and so forth. He bought about as much for his wife over there as he did for me. We re? turned on the Lusltanla, arriving here" June 25, 1909. Telia of Smuggling. "1 know nothing in detail of the scheme by which the tens of thousands of dollars of foreign articles contained In our eleven big trunks and three smaller pieces of baggage were smug? gled In. I do know, however, that all got pa3t tho customs officers without inlying any duty. "As we -were preparing to depart for home we met ? at the Savoy Hotel in , London Mr. J. S. Bache, of New York, who for years had been Mr. Allen's broker here. At the suggestion of Mr. Baciie I turned over to his represen? tative both the necklace and the ear? rings for shipment to the United States. It was explained at the tlmo that It would be too dangerous for Mr. Allen and Mr. Collins to attempt to smuggle such costly articles as these into the country. "In less than a month after we re? turned to New York I was summoned to i lie banking house of J. S. Bache & Co.. 4'J Broadway, to see both the neck? lace and tho ear-rings. Accompanied by my sister, 1 went there and we. both held the precious baubles In our hands. For sonic reason, however, wo were not permitted to take thorn away with us. 1 have never seen them since. 1 do not know what became of them-" Another Woiunu Involved. At the Federal building It was learn? ed to-day that another woman of high serial standing in Now York City . Is Involved in alleged nmugglllng plot almost as deeply as the mysteri? ous Mrs. Jenkins. Her name Is said to bei known to United States District Attorney Wise Her Jewels long have been object;', of special admiration In tho ball roomif of the "four hundred," for they arV not onlv of the most costly sort, but of seemingly Intlnite variety.
