CONTEST COMING Conflict Over State Bights Expected Koosevelt Will Meet Kit ter Opposition Next Session of Congress Will Sec a Battle Over President's Idea of Giving Central Govern. ment More Power Special to Tho Herald. WASHINGTON, Nov. 12.— Linns are rapidly being drawn for a contest, or a series of contests, in tho fifty-ninth congress ovnr the extension of federal power nnd its centralization at Wash ington. It is Inevitable that Roosevelt's idea of giving tho national government more power, to be lodged In the hands of the president or his appointees, will arouse antagonism In the senate and perhaps In the house, nnd this antagonism must be overcome If the reforms planned by Roosevelt are to be attempted. It will probably be tho last stand for state rights made in this country should the president win. Tho annual message of the president, now being written, Is said to bristle with recommendations righting by fed eral power the many things which are declared wrong. Ho Is vigorous, It is said, In his treatment of the railroad rate question, and this Is merely ex tending tho powers of the Interstate commerce commission to Fay when the rate Is reasonable, in commerce be tween states and to enforce rate. Roosevelt Is expected to make recom mendations bringing the private car lines engaged in interstate commerce within the same restrictions. He will probably renew his recom mendations for a federal license or a charter for all corporations engaged In any business in more than one state. The proposal for federal control and investigation of life Insurance com panies is on the same line. It only ro qulres the elaboration of this to include fire Insurance and liability companies, trust companies and investment and mining companies. In the same direc tion is the movement for a national divorce law and a recommendation the president made a year ago for a national employes' liability law. A similar tendency, though on broader lines, is the San Domingo treaty still pending, which gives to this govern ment the right to supervise foreign debts and to pay the foreign claims of disorganized republics.

FOUR-MASTER GOES ASHORE Unidentified Vessel Lies in the Break. ers Off Tillamook Bay By Associated Press. PORTLAND. Ore, Nov. 12.— A brief telephone dispatch to tho Orcgonian from Tillamook, Ore., states that an unidentified four-master went ashore In the breakers off Tillamook Bay at 5 p. m. today.

PRipr J Dully by Carrltf I cc /-ir-iixc rnllsC } Vrr Month I D 3 UcNTS OFFICERS BAFFLED BY MURDER MYSTERY Body of Unidentified Man Is Found on Cudahy Ranch Remains First Believed to Bo Those of Missing Frank Lamonica, but Friend of Fruit Man Fail to Fix Identify Who Is the man •whose body was found on the Cudahy ranch yesterday morning by a Chinese laborer? Did he just wander out to that place and die a natural death there, or was he the victim of some assassin? Those nro two questions that are puzzling thn police and detectives. Several theories supporting murder have been found, and as many sup porting death from a natural cause. About the man there Is a striking sim ilarity to Frank Lamonica, the Italian fruit peddler who has been missing from the city since October 23. Deputy Sheriff Sepulveda, an inti mate friend of Lamonica, of twelve years standing, accompanied the cor oner to the Cudahy ranch last night, but was unable to Identity the body as being that of Lamonica. The body of the dead man was found yesterday morning by Chin Sing, a Chinese In the employ of Manager Hund of the Cudahy ranch. It was found lying between rows in a larpre potato patch. Decomposition has evi dently been going on for two or three week nt the least, or about since the time of the disappearance of Lamonica. Nothing but a sack of tobacco was found upon the body of the dead man. He wore a pair of dark trousers, a dark brown vest and a dark coat, a soft white shirt, no tie, and large, rub ber-webbed gaiter shoes. His hat was missing. He wore no suspenders, but supported his trousers with a narrow leather belt. Around the place where the body was found the ground was considerably trampled, strongly pointing to a strug gle. From the place where the man lay, to a large patch of high weeds, a. direct path led through a patch of cauliflower and potato plants. The con dition of the plants showed that the man hnd neon dragged over them, but whether the man had been forcibly dragged or had crawled there himself could not be determined last night and probably never will be. The sandy condition of the soil has removed nil blood stains if any ever existed. The rains have also served to blot out any trail made by murder- ALLEGATIONS AGAINST OFFICIALS IN VENEZUELA ASPHALT COMPANY ACCUSES THEM OF EXTORTION Charges That They Deliberately At. tempted to Secure $400,000 by Blackmail — Matos, the Revolution ary Leader, Makes a Statement By Associated Press. NEW YORK, Nov. 12.— Allegations that high officials in the Venezuelan government deliberately attempted to extort from the company the sum of $400,000, are made In a statement given out tonight by the New York and Bermudez Asphalt company in refer ence to the suit brought by the Vene zuelan government for $11,000,000 dam ages for aiding in the Matos rebel lion. The means used by these officials, according to the allegation, included blackmail, confiscation of the com pany's property, tho manufacture of false testimony nnd the making of deereps without regard to law. In reference to the $130,000 paid the revolutionary leader, Matos, the state ment says: "The money was paid for the pro tection of the company's property dur ing the continuance of the revolution and for the protection of Its just rights thereafter In case the revolution suc ceeded and without any understanding or obligation with respect to its use. During the entire continuance .of the revolution the company, and, so far as It Is advised, all its agents in Vene zuela, ns they were instructed to do, maintained absolute neutrality."

Italy to Use Wireless By Associated Press. ROMR, Nov. 12— Slgnor Oualtlerottl, minister of posts and telegraphs, has appointed a commission under the presidency of Senator Blazerna to study the development of wireless telegraphy with a view to the establishment of ten wlrelesß stations In principal com mercial points of Italy, to be used for the public service. MONDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 13, 1905. ers. The broken down plants alone give support to that theory. Officers Are Puzzled A puzzling feature of tho discovery of the body was ono which serves to partially destroy the murder theory Is, why should murderers not leave the body In the high patch of weeds a few yards from tho fenco enclosing the ranch 7 On tho other hand were the assafcslna awn.ro of the fact that these weeds were about to bo cut down soon and that tho polato patch would not again bo touched for several months, nnd for that reason drag tho body so far believing that by the time It was discovered Identification would be an impossibility? Concerning the Identity of the dead man the polico support three distinctly different theories. Ono Is that it is not tho body of Lamonica, because, owing to the latter's standing In Italian cir cles, he in all probability would not have been simply dressed. Another is that it Is not the body of an Italian but that of an American. There Is an ab sence of the ordinarily curly black hair of tho Italian. The head is bald on top, nnd the few remaining hairs are. of gray. The mustache Is of heavy growth and almost wholly gray. A third story is that it is none other than tho dead body of tho missing Frank Lamonica. He is said to have had grny hair and slightly bald and a gray mustache. In age the man Is about 58 or 60 years. About B foot 8 inches, weight about 160 pounds. It cannot be stated whether or not the man was of stocky build or not. He has evidently lain In tho rain for several weeks, and tho sun has dried up tho body to a great ex tent. Tho body of tho unidentified man was taken to the Bresee Bros, under taking parlors. If possible an inquest will bo held on tho body today, but It is feared that Identification will be Im possible unless it is through the clothes worn by the man. . This is the second tlmo within thirteen months that bodies of dead men have been found on the Cudahy ranch. On the former occasion a Chinese was found lying in one of tho cabbage patches. His identity never became known. RAISED TO EMBASSY Elevation of American Legation Is Officially Announced in Tokio By Associated Press. LONDON, Nov. 13.— The Tokio cor respondent of the.

JOIN AUSTRIAN STRIKE Employes of Northern Railroad Take Part in "Passive Resistance" Movement By Associated Press. VIENNA, Nov. 12.— The employes of the Northern railroad of Austria to night joined in the "passive resistance strike." The reiterations of Baron yon Frank enthurn, the Austrian premier, to the effect that the government, had ac cepted a proposal to Introduce a suff rage project at the next sitting of parli ament this month have been received with satisfaction and will doubtless go far toward ensuring quiet and minim izing the effect of the demonstration.

The ukase says: "Forgetting the painful lessons of the past, the politicians who are directing the national movement In the kingdom of Poland are making attempts as dangerous for the Polish population as they are Insolent toward Russia, to bring about the separation of the em pire. Rejecting tho Idea of working in common with the Russian people in the douma, they are demanding In a series of revolution meetings the com plete autonomy of Poland with a special constitutional diet, thereby aiming at the restoration of the ' kingdom of Poland. "The government will not tolerate attacks on the Integrity of the empire, insurrectionary plots or acts of vio lence. It declares in a decisive manner that as long as the troubles in the Vistula districts continue and as long as that part of the population adhering to political agitators continues Its pres ent sway theße districts shall receive none of tho benefits resulting from the manifestos of August 18 and Octo ber 30, 1905. "There could obviously be no question of realizing pacific principles in a coun try in a revolt. Therefore, for tho restoration of order all the districts of the Vistula are temporarily declared to be In a state of war. : "The future of the Polish people thus depends upon themselves. Tho government having a desire to continue safeguarding' the integrity and national rights of the Polish people extended by recent legislative acts, expects the peo ple to recover from the present intoxi cation which has come over the king dom of Poland, the population of which has become a prey to the agitators, while at the same time it is putting the people on guard against entering a dangerous path which unfortuately they have not for the first time trod."
