DOCTOR'S WIFE IS THIEF'S 'DOUBLE' Distressing Case of Mistaken Identity Reaches Climax When Prominent Woman, Accused of Larceny, Is Exonerated By Associated Press. NEW YORK, Dec. 27.— One of the most remarkable and distressing eaxej. or mistaken identity ever brought be fore the. courts in this city reached its climax today when the victim, Mrs. Alexander Trautman, the wife of a prominent physician Was on her alibi discharged after a hearing in police court on a. charge of larceny from a man's person. A moment after Mrs. Trautman had been given her liberty, her accuser, P. J. tlogan, a clerk, was placed under ar rest on a charge of assault preferred by Mrs. Trautman. In support of her charge that Hogan treated her roughly wiien he caused her arrest, she bared her arm and showed the magistrate black and blue marks where she said Hogan had seized her. The evidence against Mrs. Trautman was of so flimsy a nature that Magis trate Finn discharged the case, with out the formality of bringing the wit ness in the court room. This witness, who was an unwilling one, is known as Kitty Wilson, and she is almost a perfect "double" of the woman who was accused. Kitty Wilson Is known to the police aftid the fact of her remarkable resem- Niince to Mrs. Trautman was recalled soon after the Investigation ,of the charge made by Hogan was begun. As a result of a search by the police the niiising "dowble" wan taken into custody today and during the arrlnn ment she was In a small room adjoin ing the court room. The necessity of taking her before Hogan was removed, however, when Magistrate Finn, after hearing the tes timony of the accuser and accused, said there was no ground whatever for holding Mrs. Trautman and direct ed that she be honorably discharged.

Defense Presents Argu ments T?y Associated I'rrss. XKW YOKK. DSC, L'T. Tlie concen tration of Wealth in the hands of com paratively few was vigorously de nounced ami earnestly defended at tho opening session today of tho fifty-sev enth annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Sci ence. Henry Laurio.q Call of Washington, D. C, attacked the right of John D. Rockefeller to his fortune, on the ground that, lie asserted, it was not the result of natural causes, but had been created through corporate activity which the speaker termed "vicious." Defends Rockefeller During a subsequent discussion of '"rile Evolution of Property," Louis G. McPherson, assistant to the late Samuel Spencer as president of the. Southern railway, replied to Mr. Call. He de clared that Mr. Rockefeller had had his financial struggles and had done, much good which was generally lost sight of In the criticism which came with suc cess. He told of Mr. Rockefeller's early at tempt to obtain $25,000 with which to construct a pipe lino for oil. One man who refused aid met the financier when tho pipe line had been laid. To him Mr. Rockefeller said: "1 built that pipe line to make oil cheaper, and I suc ceeded. I cut the cost more than half. And .yet they find fault." Too Poor to Have Oysters Mr. MePherson told then less seri ously of a dinner party several years ago at the Rockefeller home when Mrs. Rockefeller explained the absence of oysters by saying: "We like them, but aro too poor to have them." This was to illustrate Mr. McPher son's point that a man might be worth $100,000,000 and still be short of ready cash if he kept his factories in opera tion. Wealth and railroads were but two of the many subjects discussed by the speakers. SANTA FE RAILROAD ADOPTS PENSION ROLL By Associated Prosa.

Tl >PBKA, Kas., Dee. 27, In an inter view here today William ,1. Brynn practically admitted that he would bo a candidate for th" presidential nomi nation before the next Democratic na tional convention. "While I have not yet announced that I would be n candidate." said Mr. Bry n, "J have not stated that 1 would not lie :\ candidate, and do not Intend to. Such a high honor as the presi dential nomination is something that no American citizen should decline." Mr. Bryan declared that he had never stated that President Roosevelt had stolen the thunder of the Demo crats, although, he said, the president was now advocating many things favored by that party. Mr. Bryan declared there was no foundation for the story that had been printed tn the effect that he. would, If nominated, favor the selection of Sena tor William Stone of Missouri as chair man of the Democratic national com mittee. "I have, never told anyone anything about the organization of the national committee," he said. "I do not even know that I will be Interested in it fur ther than that I do not want to see men on the committee who are not good, clean men, who want a govern ment for the people and not for the trusts. I do not care to see men on the committee like Roger Sullivan of Illinois." In speaking of tho railroad legislation enacted h.v congress at its last session, he stated that he did not believe the legislation was what It should be, but he thinks that the president took what he could get. He said the giving of railroad passes was one of the most corrupting in fluences exercised in this country. Mr. Bryan spoke before the Kansas State Teachers' association here to night.

One of them lies dying With his abdomen half shot away by a rifle which he stole with other plunder last night. The other lad is In a prison cell, where he has sob blngly confessed to his crime. The dying boy Is August Schwartz, 13 years old, and the doctor who is attending him at his home at Eightn and Octavia streets, says the patient has no chance for recovery. His accomplice is August Pallassou, only one year older. Pallassou's father owns a milk ranch at Hamilton and Bouden streets and it was while driv ing an early morning milk route thai the two children, scarcely out of short trousers, became cracksmen. Last night the store of the Imperial Arms company at Van Ness avenue and .Market street was burglarized. The door had been pried open by a piece oi gas pipe which had been ham mered on the ends until It presented the chisel end of a jimmy. The booty consisted of four heavy 30.30 Win chester rifles, ten boxes of cartridges and a case of razors — all the youthful thieves could carry. Dream of Being Bandits With visions of Buffalo Rill and Nick Carter adventures in their minds the two boys climbed into the milk wagon and drove homeward with their plun der. When ihey reached the outlying districts Pallassou suggested that they try one of the rifles. Accordingly they filled the magazine with shells, but In their eagerness for a shot they forgot to lower the hammer as they threw back the lever. August Schwartz was to fire first. As he clijnbed*out of the wagon he dropped the rifle to the ground and started to use it as a support while he dis mounted. Suddenly there was a sharp report and Schwartz fell forward in the mud and the frightened horses be ean to run. Pallassou pulled up the snorting ani mals and hurried back to the wounded boy. He summoned help and Schwartz was carried to his home, a short dis tance away. Pallassou hastened away to hide tlie stolon weapons. Meanwhile Manager Kaplan of the Imperial Arms company had reported to the police the looting of his store Detectives were assigned to the case, but just before they left the report came in that a boy had been wounded on the San Bruno road. Speedily call- Ing two deputies they started for Schwartz's home. The officers have been able to es tablish that the two boys have been committing a series of crimes and the detectives believe that they are guilty of many recent burglaries.

Dec. 27.— The details of the Yaqui Indian outbreak at Lencho station on the Cananea, Taqui River & Pacific railroad, a branch of the South ern Pacific in Sonora, on Sunday night, in which eight Mexicans were killed and all the tent houses burned, have been received here. No Americans were killed, though It Is certain that but for the timely ar rival of a work train with a large crew of laborers Foreman Thompson and his wife would have been killed. Reports from the same vicinity tell of murders and outrages perpetrated by the Yaquis on Thursday and Friday and Friday night. The victims were all Mexicans, who were taken by surprise on their lonely ranches. Details of the outbreak are extremely meager, but show that the situation is serious. For several weeks past rest lessness has been observed among the Indians, but an outbreak was hardly anticipated. No unusual preparation had been made for Yaqui attacks. Those killed were shot down before any effort at defense could be made. The band of outlaw Indians is said to number about 100. Rumors of their depredations were . :fe on Saturday when many ranchers fled to the towns for safety and reported a number of murders in the district southwest of Guaymas. It was not believed, how ever, that the Yaquts would dare to attack a railroad station. Lencho is one of the smallest stations on tlie Cananea, Yaqul River & Pacific railroad. About twenty-five men under Foreman Thompson are employed there, engaged in well boring. No sen tries had been posted, and the first in timation of the attack was a volley of rifle shots fired into the tent houses. Immediately afterward the houses were set on fire, and by the light of the flames the Yaquis shot at th-e fright ened Mexicans, who were trying to escape. The reports received here say that In addition to the eight men killed at the station a number of Mexicans were wounded.
