NEW TOnK, Fob. 25.— President Win,
Truesdale of the Delaware, Lakawanna
AA A Western railroad, In a published In
terview today is quoted us saying:
"A campaign of agitation against rnll
roadn, having its origin in high execu
tive authority, is being waged through
out the country. As It passes down the
line each subordinate and each state
and local authority strives to Surpass
his superior in zeal and increase Its
volume.
"At the name time there is manifest
everywhere a spirit of unreal and dli
trust recording financial conditions ninl
the continuation of our great pros
perity.
"I am not a financial expert nnd T do
net pretend to analyze these monetary !
conditions. I hnve belief in the pros
perity of the country, but I believe we
nre living In a time of ns great Inflation
M during the greenback days at the
close of the civil war.
"No doubt there Is mine Justification |
for public hostility ngainst railroads. '
On the other hnnd, there is little doubt I
that tho conditions complnined of are |
not bo bad or bo univerpnl us claimed,
"The tendency Is to go to nn extreme
•which will not serve merely to remedy
conditions and practices that need Ht- j
tentlon, but extending far beyond, will i
so check and impede the operation of
railroads; as to affect our business Inter
ests. They all will suffer together."

Hot Only Do We Get Inspiration From

For people who are run-down and nerv-

comes necessary to turn to some tonic or .

and help them to get on their feet and
put the body into its proper condition. It
Is becoming more and more apparent that ■
Nature's most valuable health ■ giving ;
agents are to be found in forest plants !
and roots.
Nearly forty years ago. Dr. R.V. Pierce,
now consulting physician to the Invalids'
Hotel and Surgical Institute, at Buffalo,
N . V., discovered that by scientifically
extracting »nd combining certain medici-
nal principles from native roots, taken
from our American forest*, be could pro-
duce a medicine which was tnarvelously
•fiicient hi curing cases of blood disorder
and liver and stomach trouble as well us
many other chronic, or lingering all

Nature's vitality he named "Golden Mod'
leal Discovery." It purl ties the blood by
putting the stomach and liver Into
healthy condition, thereby helping the
digestion and assimilation of food which
feeds the blood. I'hereby It cures weak
stomach, Indigestion, torpid liver, or bil-
iousness, and kindred derangements,

LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING. FEBRUARY 26. 1907.
CONFLICTING LAWS
PROVE FRIENDLY
WOMAN TAKES ADVANTAGE OF
STATUTES
Asks Annulment of Marriage on the
Ground That It Is Not Legal,
Instead of Seeking
Divorce
In one of the most remarkable suns
filed In Los Angeles county for some
time Mrs. Lou E. Kamp, formerly of
Arizona, yesterday began proceedings
for annullmont of marriage from George
W. Kamp, on the ground that her mar
riage to him was not a legal one.
The question brought up by Mrs.
Kamp is one that has boon worrying at
torneys of Los Angeles for some time
and deals directly with the peculiarities
of the present divorce system in this
.state.
For some time it has boon thought
that an amendment of some sort should
be made to the state divorce laws. Here
if a i. oison is granted a decree of di
vorce another marriage cannot be con
tracted until one year after the granting
of the first decree. It. frequently hap
pens thai attorneys are negligent In
securing the final decrees, and divorced
persons often Becure marriage licenses
and conl raiti t other marriages one year
after the date of securing the inter
locutory decree without flrsi finding out
whether or not their attorneys have
secured the final papers. In ease these
final papers are not secured property
:'.: '. hta are often endangered.
Mis. Kamp's case, however, is one in
which the laws of Arizona have proven
both enemy and frlen 1 to her. Accord-
Ing t'> her statement In her petition for
annullment or marriage, she married
George W. Kamp in Arizona in April,
1904, less than a year after an Inter
loi urn y decree h:i ' I been eranti d In
Reparation between her and her first
1, J. J. West. CTnd< r the laws
of the state nr California, Mrs. Kamp
could ni. i marry until one year after
her Interlocutory d< oi cc ha I
been granted. An attorney In Arizona
told her- tiiiit her marriage in Arlsona at
i i it time \\ ould be legal there or a ny
place ci«. but California, and Mrs.
Kamp, not knowing of any particular
when she v ovid rei urn to < 'all ■
fornla contracted the marriage, That
v.as nearly three y, :u ago, and tin?
couple have a 2-year-old child now.
yesterday lira, Kamp filed wuit for
annulment against her se< ond h
mi the ground that she is not legally
married to him under the statutes of
California, which, according to the
statement of attorneys, i.i tru.-. Mim
further i Ites that Kamp lias. been cruel
to both her and the child, no that th^
Arlsona law In permitting her to wea
before Ihe i roper time did her ■ kind
ness, and th* <"»llfornla law Is now
proving kind In thut it promises to fr«e
her legally by one of the most simple
tatit, the annulment
w ueedure.

IS SENTENCED TO
PRISON FOR LIFE
BESOLD IS GIVEN EXTREME
PENALTY
Will Be Constantly Watched to Pre.
vent Him from Committing Sui
cide—New Trial Will
Be Asked
Anton Besold, convicted of the murder
of his wife, Cladie. Besold, was yester
day given the extreme penalty for sec
ond decree murder by Judge Smith In
department one of the superior court,
when the Bavarian butcher was sen
tenced to spend the remainder of his
life behind the prison walls at the San
Quentin penitentiary.
Besold expected the extreme penalty
the moment the verdict of second de
.t?re. murder was returnd in his case. Ho
stated at that time that he did not de
serve any such punishment and there
fore would not serve it. Yesterday he
reiterated that statement in such pe
culiar fashion that constant watch will
be kept upon him by the local prison
officials to prevent him from commit
ting suicide.
When his srntoncr- was read to him
yesterday Besold turned about and went
to his seat. "They may sentence me as
they will," he muttered ominously, "but
not one day's work will I do for the
Btate Of California."
Attempted Suicide
In S;ui Antonio, about two years ago,
when Besold began to realise, as ho
Bald, that iii^ wife was returning t» a
life of shame, he at that time attempted
to commit suicide by taking poison, and
nearly accocpllshed his purpose, when
his wife found him and by stamping
on his stomach produced the same ef
fecl as a stomach pump might have
done, and Besold was saved from death.
After hearing that story the officers
v, re very careful with their man when
they brought him buck to Los Angeles
from Washington, He stated on that
trip, iii what was later used in his trial
as a partial confession, that had It not
been for his- old mother being depend
ent upon him he would not have sur
\i\Vrl lliS Wife.
Because of those statements, his for
mer attempt and his mumbled threats
following Ills sentence yesterday, the
county officers will keep v strict watch
on Besold and he will not have much of
an opportunity to injure himself If he
is so disposed,
Yesterday morning In anticipation of
hearing a long sentence pronounced
many spectators were In department
one of the superior court. Besold ap
peared with a good-natured smile on
his face. He has not showed any par
ticular alarm throughout the trial, and
even though condemned to a life sen
tence In the penitentiary he Is still as
pleasant and smiling as he ever was.
He took a scat near the bailiff Inside
the railing and later Judge Smith read
his name and ordered him to stand up
and receive sentence.
Denies Hi* Guilt
Many men have been in the same
position before, but none who appre
olated the position as little as BMOld
did. Many men fulnt when they hear
ihf sentence that cuts off their Inter
course with the outside world for< ver,
burying Uiem in a living grave, iic
«old did nut Hhow any «motton. He
walked up and looked at Judge Smith in
a friendly way and Judge Smith asked
him if he had any reason at that time
Besold hud many such reasons and he
said first of all that lie was not guilty,
and then began to talk about not being
allowed to have witnesses present, when
the court cut him short by reading his
sentence, and Besold returned to his
seat.
Attorney Sturgos, representing Be
sold, yesterday began preparation of a
writ of probable cause, which will be
placed immediately before the supreme
court, asking for a new trial on the
ground that error was committed in the
last trial, and Besold will be retained In
Los Angeles until such time. It is
thotißht that Resold will remain at the
county Jail for some time before his
case is settled and the question of a
new trial is completed. In tho mean
time tho investigation of the tampered
evidence in the trial will be contlnned.
