Th is wan the <1':' laration made j j to-night b> "JNI<>111?-1-"* Jones, eighty- ' two years old, leader of the s?tri*:iu? j coal miners, who v..is reloaded last j night from the Trinidad hospital, , ] where she had been a military prisoner j hi nee January 2 2, and brought to j | Denver. The manner in which she left the camp was attended with great j ' scrccy, "I fully expect to be returned to j prison when I reach the strike zone, j but no 'iovornor nor President can make me abandon my constitutional right as a citizen to go where I please. So long as 1 live, I shall refuse to sub- ' rnlt to military despotism." "Mother" .lone:; made this statement t after an interview with Governor Am I rnons late to-day. She reached Den ver this morning. There is a radical difference between the statements of "Mother" Jones and the State authori ties, as to the manner In which she left the hospital. Sh.t* She Wa.q I)ep?rleil. The .strike leader declares she siin ply w.u deporteil; that she wa? brought to I 'envoi under military escort and .at State expense, without having evei given her consent to leaving the strike ' zone. Governor Amnions and Adjutant General John Chase said "Mother" Jones had expressed willingness to leave the strike zone if Governor Am nions would grant her an interview. Horace N. Hawkins, attorney for the strikers, entered the controversy with the statement that he told the Gov ernor "Mother" Jones had not asked I for an Interview, hut that she would j call on the Governor if Invited to do so. Hawkins declared that the Gov ernor then invited the strike leader to call upon him. The conference between "Mother" (Jones and Governor Amnions was at tended by John It. Lawson arid John McLennan, strike leaders, by Hawkins and by Claude faireliild, the Gov ernor's private secretary. j "Mother" Jones told the Governor, whom she held responsible for her imprisonment and many other events j in t lie history <.i" the strike, which she declares discreditable to the State, that she had been deported against her will. She said she would return to Trinidad whenever she pleased. The Governor replied he hoped she would not violate the law or do anything j to cause disorder in the strike zone. ' There v.*as a lengthy argument over j constitutional rights, and the authority <-: the militia to make arrests. Servo Notice on (iovornor. In the course of the interview with the Governor, the strike leaders served i notice th? y would make an effort to restore the J.ower I-"orhes lent colony, ! where tents recently were taken down j by tiie militia. Attorney Hawkins declared it his ? opinion thai the authorities had I oruught "Mother" Jones here and re | leased her to block an appeal to the Supreme Court i:i the application for a writ oi habeas corpus, recently de nied by District Judge A. \V. McIIen : flrle. at Trinidad. In declaring she would return to Trinidad, Mrs. Jones said she wished to look after the comfort of the w.trn , en and children of the strikers, and, ; particularly, to establish schools for I those in the tent colonies j "If they do not arrest me at once," | she s.iici. "I shall go ahead caring for j tiie strikers' women and children, ami ; encouraging the men to resist tyranny and robbery by the coal operators." "Mother ' Jones was put on an Atchl i son, Topeka and Santa Ke train last night, arriving in Denver early to-day. Her transportation from the strike- dis trict came after she declared her in tension of leaving the district pernia j netitly. General Chase had said ever ; since- iier arrest thai she was at liberty to leave when she desired. "M tlier" Jopes was arrested at Trin I id-id on January 12, after having been | deported from the district the week be ' fore and told not to return. Since ' her detention several efforts have been j made to obtain her release. BRYAN'S LLAMA F0R~ ZOO j <;ift l'rom Secretary >1 ny Cavort About Lincoln, .\ol>.

WILSON INSISTS ' THAI BILLS COVER! PERSONAL GUILT! | Depends on That to Break Up Antitrust Evils. FOUR MEASURES GET HIS APPROVAL; I They Will Be Consolidated Into One, and May Reach House Within Fortnight?Sherman Law Strengthened in Its Dealing With Trade Relations. Washington, March 1C.?President) \\ iiHori, ni ;i rerice to-night wrtli I the House Judiciary Subcommittee on trusts, put the stamp of administra tion approval on the substance of the four bills to amend the antitrust laws, which the committee submitted In vir tually final form. Tliorc will bo another conference at the White House within a week, ami members of the committee I asserted t'i-nis-'hi that unless protract-: ??il discussion should be raised in the ' full committee when the measures are presented, nil four bills to strengthen ? tlio Sherman law, covering Interlock ing directorates, holding companies, i trade relations and definitions of re- i straintH of trade, would be reported to the House within a fortnight. President Wilson indicated his belief that it would bo better to consolidate ' all the bills into one, in order to ex-I pedite legislation. The Senate Inter- i state Commerce Committee is under stood to favor consolidation, and that ' It will lie etYe.""teii by the House .Tudl- j ciary Committee practically is certain, > ?Miikc.t hrifrnl Suggestion*. The President made a number of sug- j P-stions to the subcommittee, which comprised Kepresentati ves Clayton,1 Alabama: Cnrlin, Virginia, and Floyd, Arkansas. Ho insisted that personal l''tilt of individuals in control of cor porations should be prescribed in every bill, in order to break up the evils that 1 havo jyown up under the present anti trust Jaws. The committee will revise the bills with this In view, ami talk with the President again before sub mitting the measures to the full com mittee and to the House. The draft of the holding corporation bill had been prepared just before the conference. The measure would mako unlawful tiiose holding companies that combine the slock of corporations so as to lessen competition, but would not affect com panies which held the stock of corpo- . rations that form essential parts of ! their business. Holding companies i that are entirely for investment, and < not for business directly, are not pro- j hibited. This would permit companies j like the big Insurance concerns to hold the stocks of corporations which arc not competitors. The committee believes that In this bill it has solved the problem of dis criminating between the holding com pany. operating by combining a num ber of competitors Into one company, i and the corporations that have been ! compelled to combine a number of con cerns that are not competitors, but j whose combination Is necessary in ' order to make a unit, or whole, as in j the case of an oil company combined j with a t>ipe line company, a produc- ' ing oil company and a retlning oil coin- I pany, till making one legitimate oil ' business. Snvcw Small Investor. The committee pointed out to the t President that the bill would save to ! industrial business the investor who ' buys the stocks of various corpora- ? tions, but is not engaged in the busl- I neS-S of operating any of them. The \ bill applies to railroad holding cor- j poratlons, but not to subsidiaries. It drawing the line at substantial com- i petitors. It includes cotton mills, if : made up of combined competitors; it ; would prohibit holding corporations; of moving picture concerns, which sought exemption, and would strike at ' various large holding establishments j which made pleas before the commit- I tee. The so-called "theatre trust" also would be affected. Theatre corpora- ! tions which hold two theatres In any one city, unless it could be proven that | : the;, were absolutely noncompet'.ng, | would be prohibited, but the bill would | not destroy a chain of theatres In dif- 1 i ferent cities in which there was no ' j element of competition. j None oi tlie four bills as now framed ! : provides for exemption of labor unions ' from antitrust prosecutions. l,nbor or- j gauixations, particularly the American' i Federation of I.abor, have urged the 1 passage of the Itacon-Bartlett bill, j which would exempt from any prose ! cut ion under the Sherman law assocl- : j ations organized wholly for the pro ; motion of labor. The trade relations bill prohibits ? manufacturers from contracting to I | prevent a merchant from handling a j I competitor's goods. It prohibits final price Using to the consumer, though it j permits the manufacturer or whole i saler to tlx the price at which goods | shall bo sold in the first instance as | from manufacturer to Jobber. Under ! this restriction, the first sale of a man- j ufactured article by Its producer would ? , be iit the snmo price everywhere, plus i ? the cost of transportation. This bill I , gives the right of injunction to indi- ! j viduals for threatened loss or damage: (Continued On Second Page.) ! j Shop 7 o-Day This morning the windows of j tho stores anil shops of Rich ntond are charming pictures.

Caillaux went to the office of the Figaro to carry out an act of ven peance against M. Calmette, who had been waging a onmpaign characterized ny great bitterness against tho Min ister of Finance. She fired at least three times, M. Calmette being wounded in the chest, in the side and in tho abdomen. "\Vhilo the editoi was being trans ported to the hospital, lie said re peatedly : "I have done my duty. I have done my duty." Stllimltn to Arrest. Having committed the deed, Mme. Caibaux submitted to arrest, and, while employes in the Figaro olllces were taking tho pistol from her hands, slio said: ".Since there ia 110 justice In thin country, I take upon myself an act of justice. Take nie where you will."' Mine. Caillaux immediately was re moved to a police station, where sho underwent a preliminary examination, the substance of which was communi cated to tlie press at her desire. "I am sorry," sho said, "for what 1 was obliged to do. I had no intention of killing M. Calmette, and 1 would bo happy to know that he will recover. I desired only to teach him a lesson." At the moment of the attack, M. Calmette was preparing to leave his oftlee in the company of Paul Bourgot, the author. He excused himself to re ceive Mine. Caillaux. In her statement to tho police, Mme. Caillaux explained that the campaign against her husband bail become in tolerable, and she determined to stop it. She consulted an eminent lawyer, who advised her that le^al proceedings would be futile?that they wero often worse in the case of an iuuoccnt per son than in tho case of the guilty. Sho decided then to take tho law Into her hands. Sho bought a revolver, drove to the Figaro otllce, and sent In her card. Fires All llor Cartridges, M.

Tho personal campaign of Gaston Calmette against Joseph Caillaux be gan on January 12, and since then tho attacks against the Finance Minister have been a daily feature of the paper. Tho fact that the campaign was in augurated on the eve of the opening of the last session of tho present Chamber of Deputies created intense interest In the charges. Among these, M. Calmette asserted that M. Caillaux offered to pay $1,200,000 to M. Schneider, the legal representative of Marcei I'rieu, who had entered a claim against the government, on condition that SO per cent of that amount should bo turned over to the radical party's cam paign fund for the coming elections. Mnkcs Sensational Clin rue*. Marcel I'rieu was a French merchant of Brazil. Thirteen of his ships wero seized by the Brazilian government in isso on tho charge that the customs regulations had been evaded. Event ually llrazil paid to tno French govern ment an indemnity of $3,000,000. Prieu's claim to this was repeatedly rejected, but his heirs in 1S9!) formed a syndicate to the claim. M. Calmette also charged that M. Caillaux had "tapped" the Comptolr National IVKscompte and other banks to the amount of $80,000. Among other accusations it w;m charged that the minister had exerted pressure on the judges to postpone tho trial of Henri Rocliette, who was ar rested In Paris In 190S on tho charge of swindling on an enormous scale, thus enabling him to flee to Mexico. M. Caillaux was also charged with au thorising the quotation on the Bourse of questionable foreign loans, where by vist sums wero lost by French In vestors. M. Caillaux contented himself with issuing categorical denials. But on March 13, the Figaro printed a facsimile of a letter from M. Caillaux to an Intimate friend, dated "Tho Sen ate, July lt>, 1901," at the tlmo M. Caillaux was Minister of Finance In the Waldeek-Rousseau Cabinet, In which ho said he had been successful in crushing the Incoino tax, although seemingly he was defending tho tax.

Calmette for . nubllsh'ing n privato letter without authority either from the sender cr tlio receiver.
