SUGAR FRAUDS IN LIMELIGHT fBv Associated Presr.* .Washington, .-.pril 14.—If not in compatible with the public interest, President Taft will tell the house what facts, if any exist, which would make it expedient for that body to enter upon an investigation of frauds in the customs service, especially in connection with the disclosures of sugar frauds. The resolution intro duced by Representative Fitzgerald of New York calling for this infor mation was passed by the house to day after an extended debate and the adoption of amendment indicated. The question whether the passage of such a resolution would embar rass the administration in continu ing its prosecution of so-called sugar trusts was given consideration. In view of the recent conference be tween the president and Representa tive Hill of Connecticut on this sub ject it is believed the information called for will not be given and that the declination will be based upon the discretion reposed in the presi dent by the constitution. Resolution was finally adopted. BISMARCK, NORTH DAKOTA. FRIDAY MORNING, APRIL 15, ,910. COL. ROOSEVELT'S FIRST AND LAST CAMEL RIDE ANDGIfFORD PINCHOT WAITING TO WHISPER, "NOW"- Porto Maurizio, April 14.—(Spec ial)—When the resut of the interview between Col. Roosevelt and Gilford Pinchot in the villa of Miss Carew. sister of Mrs. Roosevelt, was, may take a long time to settle. The fact that the deposed forest chief hurried to Europe to meet the former presi dent and lay the troubles of the Bal linger dispute before him, gives ev ery promise that Colonel Roosevelt may take an active part in either set tling the famous controversy or ad- PRESIDENT TAFT HISSED AT SUFFRAGETTE MEETING Associated FreuiO Washington, April 14.—The presi dent of the United States, the first executive of the nation ever to greet a convention of woman suffragists, braved the danger tonight of facing an army of women who want the bal lot, had the courage to cofess his opinion and was hissed. So great was the throng that sought admis sion to the hall that hundreds were turned away. President Taft was welcoming to Washington the delegates to the con vention of the National American Woman Snffrage association. He •had frankly toid them that he was not altogether in sympathy with the suffrage movement and was explain ing why he could not subscrioe fully to its principles. He said- he thought one of the dangers in granting suf frage to women was that women as a whole were not interested in it and that the power of the ballot as far as woman is concerned would be controlled by the "less desirable class." When these words fell from the president's lips the walls of conven ition hall echoed a chorus of femen ine hisses. It was no feeble demon stration of protest. The combined hisses sounded as if a valve on a steam engine had broken. I President Taft stood unmoved on 'the platform during the demonstra tlon of hostility—for the hissing con: tinued tub a moment—and then, I smiling as he spoke, he answered the unfavorable greeting with this re tort: "Now, my dear ladies, you must show yourselves capable of suf frage by exercising that degree of restraint which is necessary in the conduct of government affairs by not hissing." The women who had hissed were rebuked. The president's reply ap parently had taken hold. There were^ were no more hisseB while the pres ident continued his address which he characterized as "My confession on the woman suffrage question." At the conclusion of his talk he was enthusiastically applauded and some of the delegates to the conven tion expressed to him their sincere regret over the unpleasant incident. The president assuded them that ding fuel to the flames. Mr. Pinchot asked for the interview, according to a semi-official statement, and not Col. Roosevelt. When the Roosevelt party arrived here after the "sentimental journey" over the honeymoon route plans were made by Miss Carew for a three days' rest for her distinguish ed brother-in-law and sister. With the many reports that have been sent out from here as to what Colonel Roosevelt said to Mr. P.pchot, no one w— be sure of the result until the case has grown a bit older. he had not had his feelings injured in the least. "I am entirely certain," said the president, after he had been cour teaously presented to the convention by Rachel Foster Avery, vice presi dent of the association, that I ought not to have come here tonight, but your committee which invited me as sured me that I should be welcome even if I did not support all views which are to be advanced in this con vention, but I consider this move ment represent a sufficient part of the intelligence of the community to justify my coming here tfnd welcom ing you to Washington. "The difficulty I expect to encoun ter is this—at least the difficulty which occurs to me, as judge of my own feelings, when my interest in a campaign is aroused to-wit: 'I always am more impatient with those who go only half way with me than with those who oppose me.' "When I was sixteefc years old and was graduated from the Woodward high school in Cincinnati. I took for my graduation subject, "Woman Suf frage," and at that time I was as strong an advocate of women suffrage as any delegate to this convention. I had read much on woman suffarge and my father was a suffragist." The women cheered the president at this point in his address. The hall was a mass of waving white handkerchiefs, but the waving ceased abruptly when the president resuming, said with emphasis: "So at that time I was orthodox," Accenting "that time." "But," he continued, "in the actual experience which I have Had, I have modified my views on this subject somewhat. In the first place, the proper republican government we ap prove and support because on the Whole every intelligent cjass—that is, every set of individuals ^similarly sit uated in a community, intelligent enough to know what -their interests are—is better qualified to determine how those interests shall be cared for and preserved than any other class, altruistic.

NEW W O LE FOR GRAFTERS STATUTE OF LIMITATION MAY SAVE PITTSBURG ALDER- MANIC GRAFTERS. 1 Attorneys for the Defense See Chance to Get Their Clients Off No Ob jection to Be Made to Nesbit Serv ing As a Member of the Grand Jury. Pittsburg, Pa., April 14.—Attorney William J. Brennan, who is counsel for several of the indicted councilmen today revealed the course the defend ants will take in the coming graft trials if convictions are secured in the lower courts. Instead of pressing the question of Harrison Nesbit's right to be a mem ber of the grand jury which found the indictments, because his citizen ship is in question, no objection will be made to the trials going on at once. If convictions are obtained, however, the Nesbit contention will be made a basis of a motion for a new trial. Should this be granted—and the al leged grafters' hope is yinned to it— it will be after June 8, 1910, when the statute of limitations becomes effective in graft cases. That this offers a loop-hole for the escape of all the alleged grafters who have not confessed, including Hoff stot, is the opinion of all the attorneys for defendants. TRI-STATE WEATHER.
