I, for one, am not dlsenui? need.? President Taft, at Pocatello. Pocatello. Idaho. October 6.?In a rfpeeph before tho Chamber of Com? merce to-day. President Taft bitterly assailed the critics of the United .-'tates Supreme Court, and asserted anew his views as to the relations of government to business. "I love Judges and I lovo courts." .-aid the President; "They are my Ideals on enrth that typify what we. ahall meet afterward In heaven under a Just ?Jod. And when a court Is doing its duty, when It Is trying to Interpret tho law as It ought to be. to have It con demnesi and attacked and Its motive (|iiestioned for mere political purposes, without any solid ground for attack, got 1 to my heart, and 1 resent it with deep Indignation." Ilryan lias Not Answered. Mr. Taft spoke with far more feeling than he put Into his Detroit and Waterloo speeches, but alonft the same lines. Ho said he had received many ?rltlolsms on the point, but as yet he had failed to receive an answer to his Challenge to W. J. Bryan and other publicists to cite a single rose of com? bination In restraint of trade which ought to he condemned and which would not be condemned under the Supreme Court's Interpretation of the antitrust law In the Standard OH nnd the tobacco trust cases, "What distinguishes this country from any other nno." said the Pres? ident. "Is the Supreme Court that wn hnvo In Washington, that oft has stood between us nnd errors that mltrht have been committed that would have been greatly Injurious to this coun? try; and to turn upon that court and to question Its motves and to attack It seems to me to lay the. axe at the root of the tr<?e of our civilization." Two (.rent Derisions. Mr. Tnft referred to the Supreme Court's disposal of the Standard Oil nn i the tobacco cases as "two great decisions." "They were two of tho greatest trusts that existed." he paid, "ond In the working out of the decree the court had to make a remedy. The Standard Oil Company presented all the phases of Illegality and criminality necessary to establish n monopoly at a time when they did not feel' the neces?ltv for concealing their methods or their motives. The tobacco trust, represented an organization made In anticipation of the operation of the law. helped out by the advice of cun-. nlng lawyers In order to avoid Its' operntlon. Rut against them both the decree of the Supreme Court has been pronounced." Mnde III by Remedy. Mr. Taft .?nid It was unfortunate that the country had got Into a eond tlon thnt reoulred n remedy like this. A remedy of any evil, he added, was bound to produce for o time not bus-' iness disaster, hut n difficult situation ?that might make business slow. But. after the solution had been worked out, be saw no reason why the coun? try should not go on to greater and grpater prosperity. "To one In my placp." said tha President, "there la no discretion with reference to the trial of cases brought to tho attention of tho executive as violations of tho law. The prnsocu tions must go on. Tt Is not for the executive to say he can withhold criminal prosecutions, or any kind of prosecutions, just to help ' business. Business must reform Itself, nnd those executive duties must be performed under the oath of office that I took and tinder teh oath that those under me took. May Reach Solution. "But when thnt part of the business community that thought that the an? titrust statute did not mean anything understands that it la to be enforced Ihen we may reach a solution that will enable tho business community to set? tle down on a proper and legitimate bssls. I hope tho tlmo Is near at hand when we must get together for pros? perity. We must eliminate. sn far ?s we can, this desire to attack wealth earned by thrirt nnf? gathered by fore? sight, attention and industry, hecauso that Is to set up a feollng that bodes no good for tho result. "I believe wo are going on to a greater future. If wo had allowed these combinations to go on and develop, tho only remedy would have been to change by force the power thus con? centrated In tho hands of a few In? dividuals to the State, and then we should have hnd State' socialism, it was the Inevitable result of the move? ment toward trusts unless broken up ' Competition the Remedy.

According to the latent advices the Frenchmen were defying the local ca? liph of Agadlr. who. on his own re? sponsibility, had ordered the French colors lowered, but It is expected that tho Frenchmen will yield when they learn that their government has dis? avowed their act The enllph appealed to the command? er of a German warship In the harbor, but he refused to Interfere. The French Hag was planted on an ancient bastion dominating the town, and which the overzoulous French patriots had oc? cupied In tho absence of the garrison. They fired a Biilute and sent word to the Germans to leave Agadlr. which they declared had become a French possession. Trie incident, according, to dispatches received here, created excitement In Southern Morocco, but the German For? eign Office Is satisfied with the counter measures adopted hy the French gov? ernment.

Italy Announces That It Will Assume Offensive in Red Sea and Attack Ye? men if Necessary. i Ronr-Admirn] Borea d'Olmo has been [made Italian governor of Tripoli fpl ! lowing the military occupation of the ' city by men and guns from the Italian : fleot. To-day's advices describe the Araiia of the vicinity as offerlnK sub? mission to the Invaders, while the i Turk-lab defenders of the garrison have ' retired to the Interior. News dispatches from Tripoli con? tinue meagre, as the Italians are In a position to exercise strict censorship. Reports from tho frontier Indicate that ' there were more casualties during the bombardment than has be<n officially confirmed. The only other development of Im? portance to-day was a statement from Home that Italy would assume the of? fensive in the Bed Sea, attacking the seaports of Yemen If neccasary, be? cause the fort of Hodeldah had fired on an Italian cruiser. Arabs Give Submission, Tripoli. Tripoli. October 6.?The Ital? ians have established a new govern? ment for Tripoli. Rear-Admiral Borea d'OIIno has been appointed governor. Captain Calgnl was made commandant j of the forces disembarked by the Ital- ' j lan fleet. After Italian seamen had been landed and occupied Fort Sultanla. the chiefs of the Arab tribes adjacent to Tripoli went aboard the Italian flagship and gave their submission. They begged the Italians not to resume the bom bn rdment. The German consul, as the senior member of the consular corps, also visited the flagship, and asked Vlce Admlral Faravllla to assume respon? sibility for the preservation of order, and tho protection of foreign residents In Tripoli, which had been abandoned ! by tho Turkish troops. The admiral landed other detachments of sailors j with guns, Including quick-firing pieces, and occupied Tripoli In a mill: I tary sense. This was accompanied without Incident, and the appointment of a governor followed. The German consul Informed Vlce Admlral Faravllla that during tho shelling of the town no harm had been | done to any European, or damage to | the property of Europeans. Xot Ready for Medlntlon. Berlin. October 6.?Although the Italians lander) marines at Tripoli, It Is understood here that mediation will not be acceptable before the city has been occupied by the expedition from Italy, the first ship of which is due to sail for Tripoli to-morrow. Gormany. in the meantime, is endeavoring to restrnln Turkey from taking any meas? ures that might lessen the hope of suc? cessful mediation, anW has Induced I Turkey to withdraw the prohibition! ugain>t the*furnishing of coal for pri? vate steamers. This had seriously In? convenienced international shipping. A correspondent of the Wolff Bu? reau, telegraphing from Dohlbat. on the Tuneslan frontier, under yester? day's date, s.iys: "Six soldiers and six Jews wero killed and live soldiers and one Jew wounded during the bombaT>lrne.nt of Tripoli. "The Europeans, of whom there are still 1.000 In Tripoli, were unharmed. "The residence of tho Interpreter of the German consulate was badly dam? aged, bill the shells from the Italian fleet did comparatively slight damage In the city. "The Moslems remained passive dur? ing the bombardment." Telegrnm of Protest. Constantinople. October 6.?At a meeting to-day in the Mosque of St. Sophia, a telegram of protest against Italy's declaration of war on Turkey was formulated and sent to all the par-' liaments of the world, peace and arbi? tration societies, universities, Socialist' organisations and The Hague peaco' tribunal. The telegram sav's the oc? cupation of Tripoli Is unjustified, and thai Italy Is unworthy of a place among the great powers. It asks whether Western civilization ha? con? sidered the effect upon the Eastern mind of Italy's brigandage. The meeting also sent tho following j to Klnsr George of England: I "How can n power like England, rul i lug between eighty and ninety millions of Moslems, regard with complaisant I silence the declaration of war against ! the ottoman nation and the blockade of Tripoli'.' Is such policy In harmonv with tho present nnd the future In? terests of England?" Is Dlstlnarulshcd Oflleer, Rome.

The Intention of the Italian govern? ment to avoid further Incidents on the Albanian const was frustrated either because Captain Blscarettl. In command of a section of the torpedo boat flo? tilla, had not received the instructions on this point, or was provoked by the assumed responsibility of the Turks.

PLAN OPPOSED I BY BISHOP HOSS He Fears That Amalgamation of Seventeen Different Kinds of. Methodism in America Would Result in Body Too Unwieldy to Be Ef? fective. Toronto. October 6.?Statistics re? lative to Resources in Men and Means In Methodist Mission Fields." was given to-day by Rev. James Lewis, of Cambridge, England, proved. Interest? ing to the delogates from seventeen countries, who attended the sessions ?if tho I Ecumenical Mathodlat Confer? ence In t'hls city. Vrom the detailed reports presented It appeared that during the last year there were 2,628 Methodist foreign I missionaries. These Includod 9S0 or | dalned missionaries and 110 physl [ c.ians, fivo of the. doctors being wo I men. N'utlve workers numbored 30,847, while the number of missionary stn t'lons and substations was 6,762. These missionaries represented "08,105 bap? tized Christians, and 1,444,292 adher i ents, of whom 468,166 were Hunday school teachers and scholars. The or? dained ministry at the beginning of 1910 was 9.598. of whom but 2.322, or 6 per cent, counting foreigners and natives. v*t.> in the mlsBlon (leid. One Minister to 174 Member*. "Of our total number of ministers Ihroughout the world." said Mr. Lewis, "the average Is one to every 171 Methodist church *?rncmbcrs. In hea? then countries the ratio Is one. Metho? dist minister to every 308 members. Our means as oxprcssed by the in? come of the missionary societies In 191b totaled about 17.000,000, a sum which represented about 80 cents to each of the 8,751.431 Methodists." Practically every phase of foreign missionary work was discussed by delegates from various fields. An ur? gent plea was made by the Rev. T. II ! 1 Lewis, of Westminster. Md., who 's president of the general conference of I the Methodist Protestant Church, for a union of American Methodists into I one brrdy*. Tills proposition, which hBS been discussed since the opening of the conforence, evidently is fav-j ored by a large majority of tho United! States delegates. Bishop R. K. Uoss, of tho Methodist Episcopal Church,] South, was the only one to express dissent at to-day's meetings. "When you get too big a church It suffers from its own obesity." he said. Mr. Lewis stated his position In favor of such a union thus: "We are keeping ourselves beck from the greatest oppor? tunity ever offered us by the most un? necessary and Inexcusable hindrance ever tolerated. If a census of opin? ion could be taken as to what one circumstance would do most to pro? mote world-wide evangelism among Methodists themselves. enlist most missionaries and start a missionary crusado that would set tho wold aflame with new zeal and hope, I believe an overwhelming majority of all our peo? ple would say 'It is the union of Amer? ican Methodists Into one body. We have seventeen different names for Method? ists In America, and consequently about us many different missionary cam? paigns. In the field WO compete with each other, duplicate each other's ef? forts and confuse those we are try? ing to serve. Tbe Heart of Metbodlsm. "Evangelism," Mr. Lewis said, "is essentially the heart of Methodism. But doctrine and policy are only tho mechanical exponents of the real pe? culiarities of Methodism. Pierce n Methodist until he bleeds and you find not a dogma, nor a rubric, but a throb? bing heart. For hlrn regeneration is not a' figure of speech nor a magic force. "Methodism is heart power rather than mind power, but it has both. Methodists claim to have received a new and peculiar powor demonstrated to be of God?a peculiar power over sinners. entailing responsibility for tvorld-wldo evangelism." Among other speakers to-day wore the Rev. G. W. Clinton, of Charlotte. N, ?'.. Bishop of the Afrlcnn Methodist Episcopal /.ion Church, who spoko on "The Mission of Methodism to tho Backward Races"; Rev. David Brock, Soulhport, England, "The Mission of Methodism to the Non-Christian Races"; Bishop E. B. I loss, Nashville, Tonn.. '"Methodism In Korea."

SEABOARD NAMED AS A DEFENDANT Florida Company Claims That Attempt Was Made to Pre? vent Delivery of Bonds Which It Had Floated for Extension of Line to Atlantic Port Jacksonville, Fla., Ootober G.?Suit for the recovery of $6,000.000 damages Was filed to-day in the United States Court here by the Florida Hallway Companr against 'tho Seaboard Air Line Hallway, the Knickerbocker Trust Company of New York, Charles H. Keep, Francis Henderson, R- V. Mat? thews, C. W. Lucas and Frank Q. Hrown. of Now York, and H. Relman Duvall, of New Jeraoy. George M. Powell, a stockholder In the Florida Railway Company, Insti? tuted the suit by filing a praecipe. con? spiracy being charged to the defen? dants. This suit promises to attraot na? tional attention, tho plaintiffs claim? ing they will show violation of the Sherman law. Several years ago the owners of the road, which waa then operating be? tween Live Oak. Fla., and Perry. Flo., seeing that It was only a feeder to the Atlantic Const Line and the Seaboard Air Lino, decided to extend It to two Atlantic ports, Fernanddna and Jack? sonville. Bonds Are Floated. The ftna-noial provisions for such an extension were successfully concluded, nnd the bonds for the extension worn floated, the Cnrnegle Trust Company, of New York, being selected to handln t.ha .bonds. In January of the present year the Carnegie Trust Company failed, and the Florida Railway Com? pany was put to the necessity of plac? ing the business in other hands. The Knickerbocker Trust Company later was seleotod as trustee and agent for the, bonds, whlob had been sold to j French capitalists. Later In the proceedings the pur? chasers of the bonds demanded their delivery, which was delayed by the Knickerbocker Trust Company, and de? mands of the Florida Railway Com? pany for the return of tho bonds. It Is alleged, were also met with refusal. Because of the delay of the Knick? erbocker Trust Company, the railway directors commenced an Investigation, and ascertained, it Is charged, that the actions of Lhe Knickerbocker Trust Company were Instigated by two di? rectors of that firm, cwho. It Is alleged, were also directors of the Seaboard Air Line Railway. l.a Follette Taken Tfand. Senator La Follette, of, Wisconsin, has started an Investigation in con? nection with the case, seeking to prove whether or not tho Sherman anti? trust law has been violated. The ! French government, through the ap? peals o-f the purchasers of the bonds, I has also brought the matter to the l attention of the government, asking that the purchasers bo protected and that the responsibility for loss to them be fijed. j It Is charged by tho directors of the Florida Railway Company that In the alleged attempt to prevent the deliv? ery of tho bonds and the completion of tho work of tho Florida Railway Com? pany to an Atlantic port, the Knick? erbocker Trust Company and the Sea I board Air Line Railway have entered I Into a conspiracy to restrain trade and commerce. NAVAL ESTIMATE COMPLETED Low Water Mark Reached In Retrench? ment Pollc-y. Washington, October 6.?It will cost In round numbers $120.000.000 to main? tain the United States Navy nnd pro? vide for suitable increase during the next fiscal year, according to the es? timates Just completed by Secretary Meyer. This Includes a provision for two superdreadnoughtH. probably of about 28,000 tons, and a suitable num? ber of auxiliaries. This llgure marks the low water mark in ine retrench? ment policy of the administration so far as the navy Is concerned. The es? timates are the same as tho appro? priations for the current fiscal year. These appropriations were $3.000,000 l.ss than the estimates for tho preced? ing year, and these, In turn, wore $10, 000,000 less than the estimates for tho fiscal year 190&-00. which was the. last year of the Roosevelt udmlnlstratlon. It Is believed 'by Secretary Meyer that the present estimates therefore have brought the expenditures on account of the navy down to thu lowest point con? sistent with Its healthy development and maintenance.

The onslaught was mado with sucn suddenness that the small police detail at the bullding nad no opportunity to summon rajjif orceme.nts. Corporal William Peterson, In chargo of thq, squad, displaced such nerve, however, that the mob spirit wlltod and a bloody encounter was averted, Tho mob, armed with stones, clubs and other weapons, rushed tho build? ing, but with tho throwing of tho tlrst missile Corporal Peterson pinioned William .1. Mas?n. who throw It and who was the supposed leader of the attaek. The next stone was thrown by William Dunn, wbo also was arrested. The mob started to, rescue tholr load? er, but Peterson's threat that his men would shoot to kill brought the mob to a halt. The arrival of police re? serves put an end to further rioting. The other men fell back two blocks and dispersed, not, however, until as? surances had been given by the city i authorities that tho strlke-nreaker-i j would be taken out of New Orleans he j fore dark. This the railroad company I had already arranged to do. At 3:30 I o'cJiocfk the a>trlke-breakers -were nfarched under heavy police guard to a special train and rushed out of the city to McComb City.

October ?.?After 1'examining T2E Items of amounts paid to Individuals, who rollocllvely receiv? ed $107.703 for campaign expenses, the senatorial committee which is lnvesU I gating charges of bribery in connec? tion with the election of United States ? Senator Isaac Stephenson, to-day heard I testimony that money was used for j "entertainment" and not for any cor f rupt purpose. No Itemized accounts of the expenses [were returned, but Ilodney Sackett. one I of the campnlgn managers, testified I he had been informed that the money ? had been used largely for buying el ! gars and heer. It was tho custom In j Wisconsin during campaigns, Sackett 'testified, to send Jugs of whiskey and kegs of- beer to localities where fa? vorable political sentiment wus to bo worked up. This was given by Sackett as explaining tho extent of Senator Stephenson's expenditure for the nomi? nation for Senator at the primary In 1908. When Senator W. B.

V SWEPT BY FLOOD, TRAIN IS WRECKED Half of Business Sec? tion Destroyed With First Rush of W aters. - j PEOPLE ESCAPE TO HIGH GROUND No Lives Known to Have Been; Lost, but All of Black River Falls Is Doomed?Embank? ment of Dams Gives Way, Releasing Water in Reservoir. La Crosne. Wli, Ootober tu?The.slt-^ nation at Biaclt River Falls, the pros> porous little city of 2,000 Inhabitant^ which waa bw<d( by a flood this after,, noon, wnun the .waters of tho Blacky River, swollen by recent rains, washed, through the embankment of the Lu? Crosse Water Power Company's dam*, at Hatfleld, to-night Is worse by fa?i than waa even feared when tho floods awept upon the city. Half of the business seotlon haa beery destroyed, together with a part of the! residence district, and It is alleged, by the townspeople, who have takenTe-y t'uga on high lands, that the city v. 111. be wiped out. Whether or not lives have been lost la not yat certain. The poople have been scattered, and to? night canvasses are being mado to do-, termine how many, If any, are missing, ThUB far two persons hava not beon accounted for. Waters Stilt tuning. At 7 o'clock to-night between twenty and thirty business nouses, compris? ing all tho stores on both sldos of two, stroets. had been destroyed, together; with an equal numbor of bouses. At, that hour tho waters woro stlU rising rapidly, and, tho destruction of the stores on the other two buslnoBa streets were predicted before morning. Tho buildings hove beon not merely flooded, but destroyad. The water, Mowing In tremendous volume, under? mined one big building after another, i and ns each collapsed tho dobrla for the most part was carried away. Tho Tremont Hotel, a throe-story struc? ture, was tho llrst to go. No precau? tions could bo taken to stop tho wreck? ing of the town, the residents finding It a dlfllcylt problem to secure safety for themselves, families and more val? uable possessions. None of tho stocks In the stores was saved, and Uttlo of tho hoavlor furni? ture In the hnusos. The people, though they knew of the overflowing of tho dam, showed little fear of Its effect* until the waters burst upon them. The city to-night Is In darkness, tho electric light plant being one of tho first to be struck by the dood. The disaster was caused by the sud? den rise of the Black Blver behind the two dams of the La Crosso Water Pow? er Company, following rains which lusted almost a week. The uams with? stood the pressure, but in each case tha river washed around the sides, taking nut a big section of the river bank and coming down upon the country below In almost ut great volume as If the dams had been swept away. Tho $6,000,0001 property of tho water company Is believed to be not greatly damaged, nnd to-ulght It Is said that the main dam, which Is a concrete structure, 100 feet thick at the base and fifty feet at the top, would probably stand all tho forco which might be directed; against It. Farmers Are Warned. Besides the damage at Block Rlver\ Falls, a great tract of surrounding; country was overrun. Effort was mudo to send warnings to farmers, but tel? ephone wires soon went down, and tho fato of many settlers Is tho cause for. some apprehension.'' Below Black River Falls aro a number of villages, and tho high waters are due to strike them! :oiing the night and to-morrow. Cut) off by telegraph, the news from Black. River Falls Is being sent to La Crosse to-night by the Wisconsin Talcphono Com puny, which has stationed a man on top of u telephone pole. Ho Is send? ing his report ns well ns tho flooded lines permit. "Black River Falls Is doomed: tho town will bo wljted off tho map," waa tho comment of W. W. Holcomb, man? ager of the Standard OH Company here, who returned to-night from the threatened city. "When I left there at * o'clock this nfternonn tho main portion of the place was undor water, and the flood wus racing down Water Street at the rate of apparently twenty miles an hour. Earth disappeared beforo it as though It were only snow. "It would seem past belief, but T saw a big stone building on a hill 100 feet from the water crumble like an egg shell ami disappear complete? ly with the hill that supported It. Tho water had undermined tho hill find carried everything away. "Shortly afterward a knoll, sixty feot long, north of It, was under? mined and then the poorhouse. a great white building, three or four stories high, went with It. "When the waters appeared the flro boll culled every one to the streets. It was sounded to get the people out to assist the residents on the flats In removing their goods. Warehouses and other buildings were swe.pt away clean. "To get out of the town I had to go around over a railroad bridge, on<? approach to which had been taken out. There was nothing left In tho town to t eat * ?> Had Plenty of Time. "I henr.l of no loss of life. Inhabi? tants had plenty of time to got out of danger." Harry Octtman, formerly of the Wis? consin Telephone Company at Tomah, Is the "Jack Blnns" of the flood. Perch | ed on the top of a pole with a tele i phone Instrument cut in, with only darkness about him. and whirling wa? iters shaking ine pole, ho to-night sent news to La Crotse and warnings to all points he could reach. ! Clottman worked In the flood district nil day without food. -Wherever ho [could reach s country exchange or *> farmer's telephone he shouted a warn? ing. At s o'clock this evening, after having been on the pole much of the time slnro 2 o'clock. Osttmnn want obliged to descend, whon Its unsteadi? ness gave him warning that It was soon to fall.
