(Successor to Watertown Republican.) The Leader is entered al the Postoffice ai second-class matter. HAD MILLIONS, BUT NO HOME As In John W, Gates’ Case, It Would Seem That Modern Financiers Have Their Choice. There Is something sadly -signifi cant In the statement that the funeral of John W. Gates was held from a hotel. The man who was willing to "bet a million” was borne to his grave from a New York hostelry, and the world saw the last of the most extraordi nary figure the reaim of finance has produced In many decades. Perhaps It may b accepted as a truism that the man who cares for money, and Its speedy making, more than for anything else In the world. Is the man who must go through the world homeless, as surely as Philip Nolan went through the world coun tryless. The making of mammoth, swift for tunes Is Incompatible with the build ing of the home. To have money, eas ily won, means that the home has lost Its charm—lts very character. The hotel and the train and the for eign land each becomes an Irresist ible lure. To the gambler his parlor; the home is only for those who have learned, through troubled toil, what the home means and is worth. This law works, perhaps, as a means of equalizing things. For the big gambler not only destroys his own home, but the homes of a thousand poor. It is the gambler on a big scale who creates the hovel and the ghetto and the places where the poor must abide. When one class of men strug gle for high stakes, there is not enough money to go around. Mr. Gates had his merry compan ionships, his changing scenes, his feasts, his excitements. But did he not pay all too high a price for them, seeing that at the very end he was without a home?—St. Louis Times. An Emperor at Home. The Japan Advertiser publishes zome interesting details respecting hfs majesty the emperor of Japan, ob tained from the Nlchi Nichi. It ap* pears that the emperor leads a most regular life, and he is to be seen regu larly in his studio at certain hours of the day, dressed in military uniform, for his majesty prefers this dress, stiff as it is, to any other when on duty. The emperor refuses also to use electric fans, considering that such luxuries are unnecessr-'-, and when his chamberlain recommended that blocks of ice should be placed in his study, he replied that he did not wish for any such luxuries. As re gards daily food, also, the emperor is extremely simple in his tastes, and frequently products from the horticul tural gardens at Shinjiku, reared by her majesty herself, find their way to the royal table. Altogether his ma jesty is a model of simplicity, a con siderate husband, and a loving father. Leaves Funds for Poor. The poor of Meriden and Middle town, Conn., are to be aided by trust funds established by the will of Wal ter Hubbard, who was a wealthy man ufacturer. This was announced by the financial institution which will handle various trusts, the incomes of which are to be distributed annually. For the poor of Meriden a fund of $50,000 will b'e established; for the poor of Middletown, $25,000; Wesley an university, $40,000; Meriden City hospital, $50,000; Curtis library, $25,- 000, and Hubbard park, $50,000. Theta are requests for churches and for the Young Men’s Christian association. More than $1,000,000 will go to rela tives. Mr. Hubbard began his busi ness career as a clerk In a Middle* town store. New One On Her. There was recently presented to a newly-married young woman in Balti more such a unique domestic proposi tion that she felt called upon to seek expert advice from another woman, whom she knew to possess consider* able experience in the cooking line.’ 1 "Mrs. Jones," said the lirst-men tioned young woman, as she breath lessly entered the apartment of the latter, “I’m sorry to trouble you, but I must have your advice.” “What is the trouble, my dear?” “Why, I’ve just had a ’phone mes sage from Harry, saying that ho is going out this afternoon to shoot clay .pigeons. Now he’s bound to bring a lot home, and I haven’t the remotest idea how to cook them. Won’t you please tell me?’ —Llppincott’s.

FOUR OF THE INJURED WILL DIE Most of Victims Were Employes of Menasha Paper Mills— Bodies of Dead Horribly Mangled and Scattered Along Track for 200 Feet—Train Crew Not Blamed. Neenah.—Thirteen persons were killed, ten instantly, and ten others seriously injured when a Northwest ern train, northbound, struck a hayrack filled vrith Menasha merry makers at a grade crossing on the southern outskirts of this city. Four of the injured are so seriously hurt that they can not live. Thirty young people, who were re turning from a Saturday night dance at the home of Peter Han son, who lives on the road to Osh kosh, were singing as the big hay rack was pulled up the slight in cline to the Northwestern crossing, a mile south of the station in this city. The next instant the speeding Northwestern passenger train, .bound for the north, had ploughed through the rear end of the big farm wagon, and twenty-three of the thirty oc cupants of the wagon were scattered 200 feet along the railroad right of way, dead, dying, or dangerously hurt. Those who were seated in the front of the wagon escaped almost without bruises. The Dead. JOHN CHEDGICK. JOSEPH CHEDGICK. DOMINIC OMNISZNICKE. JOSEPH CHESLOCK. CELIA RENZ, AGNES ASHOPKE. MR. AND MRS.

Mary Schwartzbauer. Tony Romnick. Peter Hanson, driver. Only the driver, Peter Hanson, A r ho did not receive as much as a scratch, was able to give a coherent account of the accident. He saw the headlight of the northbound North western train, underestimated the distance, and, before he could urge his overtaxed team across the tracks, the monster locomotive had ground through the vehicle with its party of merrymakers. Not one of the survivors, w r ith the exception of the driver, saw the train or heard its approach; none realized the danger until picked up. The train had passed the scene fully 400 feet before it could be stopped. Words fail to describe the scene following the collision. Mangled bodies were strewn along the tracks. Six bodies were taken off the pilot of the engine. Dismembered parts of many were left on the trail of blood from the crossing to where the train stopped. Three of the bod ies were so frightfully mangled that identification was made possible only by the clothing they wore. One body was shorn of head, arms and legs. They were picked up half an hour after the body had been taken to the improvised morgue in the Me nasha Furniture company building. The driver and his horses escaped, but the hayrack wms smashed into splinters. Pieces of wood were ground into several of the dead. Phillip Mott and Amanda Syring, in jured, were thrown through the foundation of the flagman’s shanty at one side of the track. Two others of the persons killed were hurled through a flagman’s shanty with such force as to over turn the little structure. One of STATE NEWS IN BRIEF. Milwaukee. —Mrs. Charles Moul, found by neighbors, lying in a gas filled room beside the dead body of her 6-year-old son. may be prose cuted for murder if she recovers. Madison. —Emma Helen Blair, an authoress, known for her history of the Philippine islands, is at the point of at the Madison sanatorium.

Lee, fore man for the Madison Gas and Elec tric company, was nearly asphyxiat overcome by gas while working in ed and several other workmen were a ditch. They were engaged in mak ing a connection and a large quan tity of gas escaped. Madison. —Before installing the necessary machinery in the binder twine plant in the state prison at Waupun, the board of control has planned to visit the Minnesota prison at Stillwater to inspect the binder twine plant there. these was Mrs. Finn, who was pro jected through one of the side walls of the house and w r as still alive when removed. She died a few hours lat er. Another of the victims killed was thrown high over a barn fifty feet from the right of way. It was with songs on their lips that the merrymakers met death. They were singing popular songs when the engine bore down on them. Ten met death instantly. Two died on their way to Clark hospital; an other died at the institution. Ten were badly crushed and fatal conse quences are expected in four other cases. Nearly all of the dead were em ployed in the paper mills here. The flag over the city hall is at half mast and everywhere there is manifesta tion of deep grief. ‘‘l was standing up in front of the wagon near the driver holding a lantern to light the road for him,” said Anton Brezinski one of the sur vivors, “and we were both on the lookout for an approaching train. There is a huge advertising billboard running up to the track and this completely hid the train from our sight. The board is sixty feet long and about ttventy feet high, painted a dark gray, giving it the appear ance of the sky in the background, and deceived us in thinking the track was clear. “There was no warning of any kind, no whistle or bell and the first intimation we had was when I saw the headlight appear from behind the billboard and less than thirty feet from us. We were then direct ly on the track and it was too late to avoid the accident. Further back in the wagon the others w r ere talk ing and laughing among themselves and could not have seen the train anyway. When the crash came it literally swept the wagon from under me and I landed squarely on my feet almost beside the train.” The two most intimately con cerned in the tragedy were in a pitia ble condition following the accident. Engineer Frank Spooner of Green Bay tried to handle the throttle of the train to the end of his run, after the accident, but he became almost insane before reaching Appleton, and here he was taken off the train to a secluded spot where his shattered nerves could be quieted. Peter Han son, driver of the wagon, also be came nearly insane and -was placed in care of physicians. No blame is attached to the rail road officials. The engineer was Frank Spooner of Green Bay, and Conductor Keers of Chicago, it was said here, was in charge of the train. The crossing is a dangerous one and is about a mile and a half from Nee nah. The train was running easily forty-five miles per hour, it is said, but the tracks in both directions are exposed. It would be possible to see the headlight of a train looking either north or south. WILL INVESTIGATE HORROR Thorough Inquiry Into Neenah Cross ing Tragedy Is Ordered by State Railroad Rate Commission. Madison. —A thorough investiga tion of the disastrous crossing trag edy at Neenah which resulted in the death of thirteen merrymakers has been ordered by the railroad rate commission.

HUNDREDS KILLED IN NAVY DISASTER Fire and Explosions Send French Ship to Bottom. SINKS IN TOULON HARBOR Officers' and Men's Loyalty to Duty Causes Appalling Loss of Life— Sailors Slain While Fight ing Flames. Toulon, France.—More than 400 offi cers and men were killed in the harbor of this port when the bat tleship Liberte, one of the finest ships in the French navy Was blown up and totally destroyed by an explo sion of her magazines. The battleship Republique was se verely damaged and the battleships Democratic and Verite also suffered from the masses of twisted iron and armor plate that were hurled upon their decks. This is the greatest disaster that has ever befallen the French navy, and in magnitude is almost without prece dent in the annals of the world’s fighting ships. It is thought that the disaster was due to the deflagration of “B” pow der, as in the case of the lena. The fire is believed to be the result of the blast. About 5 a. m. the watch per ceived a dense smoke coming from the forepart of the ship. He reported this to the officers, who promptly or dered that the magazines be flooded as a first precaution. Men went to open the valves communicating with the sea, but returned precipitately, saying that it was impossible to carry out their orders on account of the poi sonous fumes rising from the maga zines. Word of the danger flew from mouth to mouth. Men rushed to the boats or jumped into the sea. At this juncture help arrived from the other ships, and the officers of the Liberte, encouraged by the re-enforcements, determined to make another effort to conquer the fire. The bugler was ordered to sound the rally, ihe spirit of discipline was so excelle v t that the men w-ho had jumped into the sea asked the boats which picked them up to put them .back aboard the Liberte. Some idea of the violence of the ex plosion may be had from the fact that the officer commanding the gunnery school ship Foudre, anchored three kilometers (1.86 miles) from the Lib erte, was killed on his own quarter deck by a fragment of shell hurled from the Liberte, and two sailors standing beside him were wounded. Of the vessel’s full complement of 742 Captain Jaures, brother of the so cialist leader, and the second officer in command were both ashore on leave, as well as 140 officers and men. The command of the ship devolved on the senior lieutenant, who perished. The position of the fire made it im possible to flood the magazines; never theless efforts to do so w-ere made, and finally the commanding officer, realiz ing that the ship w r as doomed, ordered the bugler to sound the “sauve qui peut” (let him save himself who can) and shouted to the men to jump for their lives. At 5:35 the first explosion occurred. It was followed by-three others at one minute intervals. Then came the final terrific detonation, which shattered the windows of the entire city and was heard for a radius of many miles. The Liberte was rent asunder; its bows were thrown high in the air, and then the vessel slowly settled down and in 19 minutes nothing was visible except the top -works. Those still on deck were hurled sky ward amid a shower of iron and steel. The boats of the rescuers were sunk and serious damage was done to the Republique, which lay at anchor close by.

New York.—At the conclusion ot a conference on the reorganization of the American Tobacco company Attorney General Wickersham said he could not be sure when the petition setting forth the proposed plan for dissolution would be tiled with the United States circuit court, but he did not think any further con ferences would be necessary. After the conference it was an nounced that a petition would be filed with the United States circuit court setting forth the proposed plan of dissolution in consonance with the mandate of the Supreme court and that public hearings on the plan would follow. Mr. Wickersham was asked if the plan outlined was one of dissolution. “I should prefer to call It one of disintegration.” he replied. In response to many inquiries re garding the possible prosecution of the United States Steel corporation. Attorney General Wickersham issued a statement in which he emphasized the position of his department that Investigation of a corporation does not necessarily imply that disintegra tion will follow. What steps will be taken cannot be determined until the investigation has been completed, since each case stands on its own footing and depends upon the particu lar facts. In conclusion he said: “It cannot be stated too positively that the department is not inaugurat ing a campaign against the business interests of the country or an indis criminate attack on all large prosper ous concerns. On the contrary, the care and caution with which the law officers of the government are pro ceeding to the examination of each case should be a guarantee to the country that the department is pro posing to enforce the law with care not to unnecessarily injure any in terests." TURKS SEIZE ITALIAN SHIP. Conflict Between Two Nations Over Tripoli Protectorate Near. Port Said. —According to reports received here an armed conflict between Italy and Turkey seems inevitable as a crisis between the two nations over the proposal of Turkey to establish a protectorate over Tri poli has reached its climax. The Turks, according to reports re ceived here from apparently reliable authority, have captured the Italian liner Regina Margherita at Mersina, In Asia Minor. The steamer is one of the fleet of the Navigazione Generale Ital iana of Genoa. As the Italians have been prepared for some time to take immediate ac tion should the Ottoman government refuse to agree to the protectorate it is thought that action in seizing the Italian liner will precipitate trouble between the countries at once.

RECIPROCITY AND LAURIER BEATEN Liberal Government Meets De feat in Canada Election. SEVEN MINISTERS LOSE OUT Return* Show Majority of Fifty fop Opposition in Next Parliament — Result Disappointing to Presi dent Taft. Montreal. The Laurler gov ernment and reciprocity suffered an overwhelming defeat in the Cana dian elections. By a veritable polite leal landslide the Liberal majority of 43 was swept away and the Conserva tive party secured one of the heaviest, majorities, upwards of 50. that any Canadian party has ever had. In the landslide against reciprocity seven ministers of the Laurier govern ment went to defeat, including Minis ters Fielding and Paterson, who nego tiated the agreement at Washington. Fielding was beaten in his home dis trict in Nova Scotia, while Paterson was beaten In Ontario. The Conservatives have gained not less than 25 seats In Ontario and as many in Quebec. The result comes as an unexpected disaster in the face of the confident hopes of the government that it would be sustained on the paramount issue it had made of reciprocity between Canada and the United -States. Sir Wilfrid Laurier is elected In Quebec East, as the seat had not been contested. The Liberals lost ground in prac tically every province of the Dominion. "Where they won, their majorities were small. Where the Conservatives won their majorities were tremendous. On tario, the leading province of Canada, declared almost unanimously against the administration and reciprocity. Robert L. Borden, leader of the Con servative party, will shortly become the prime minister of Canada. He will be supported In parliament by a working majority of members far more than ample for his purposes. The government defeat means that the Fielding-Knox reciprocity agree ment, ratified by the American con gress in extra session, will not be introduced when the Twelfth parlia ment assembles next month, and that a revised basis of trade with the United States, looking to closer com mercial relations, will not be possible In the Immediate future. The Con servatives are committed to a policy of trade expansion within the empire and a closed door against the United States. Although re-elected in two con stituencies in Quebec, the defeat of the Liberal party also means the re tirement from public life of Sir Wil frid Laurier, who for nearly two de cades has directed the destinies of the Dominion. Several times during the bitter campaign which preceded the election the venerable premier said that defeat of his party at the polls meant the end of his career; that ue never would consent to lead a minority in opposition to a Conservative gov ernment. A Liberal membership of 53 from Quebec was cut down to 36, which, taken alone, seriously threatened the supremacy of the party. But it was In Ontario that the Conservatives won their greatest victories. Spurred on by appeals to patriotism and the cry that reciprocity was the entering wedge for annexation, the Conserva tives swept nearly everything before them. That province, which in the last parliament was represented by 35 Liberals and 51 Conservatives, will send a delegation to the next com posed of 13 Liberals and 75 Conserva tives. A notable feature of the de feat was the opposition’s capture of two hitherto Liberal seats in Sas katchewan. Kalamazoo, Mich. President Taft heard the news of the de feat of reciprocity in the Canadian election while at a banquet here The intelligence cast gloom over the pres idential party and caused the presi dent intense disappointment. “I am greatly disappointed over the result of the reciprocity election so far as the returns have indicated,” said the president.
