WASHINGTON, Nov. 9.—ln deciding the case of Berea College vs. the State of Kentucky favorably to the state, the supreme court of the United States today held that the states of the Union may constitutionally legislate to pre vent the coeducation of the white and black r .. The case was instituted to test the validity of the state law of 1904 pro hibiting white and black children from attending the same schools. The higher state court took the posi tion that the white and black races are naturally antagonistic, and that the forced separation of the children of the two is in the line of preservation of ■ The opinion of the supreme court was handed down by Justice Brewer, and affirmed the finding of both the Ken tucky circuit court and the court of appeals. Justices Harlan and Day dissented. Justice Brewer's Opinion Justice Brewer's opinion dealt entire ly with corporations as affected by the Kentucky state law and dirt not con sider the question of Its applicability to individuals. Proceeding upon the theory that a Btate had complete control over cor porations as its own creation, he con strued the law of 1904 as in effect an amendment to tho charter of Berea col- lege. Responding to some of Justice --.i*. lan's strictures, Justli c Brewer said: "There is no force in the sugg'-snon that the statute, although clean arable, must stand or fall as an en tirety on the ground that the legisla ture would not have enacted one part unless it could have enacted all. "That the legislature of Kentucky desired to separate the teaching of white and colored children may be con ceded, but It by no means follows that It would not have enforced the separa tion, so far as it could do so, even though it could make it effective under all the circumstances." Should Face Question Squarely Contending that it would prow im practicable and unsatisfactory tn sep arate corporate from private schools, Justice Harlan in his dissenting opin ion said the court should meet the en tire question squarely and decide whether it were a crime, under any conditions, to educate white children and negro children at the same insti tution. He did not concede that it should be so regarded. "Have we," he asked, "become so in oculated with prejudice of race that nn American government professedly based on the principles of freedom and charged with the protection of all citi zens alike, can make distinctions be tween such citizens in the matter of th< ir voluntary association for Inno cent purposes, simply because of their respective races? "Further, if the lower court be right, then a state may make it a crime for white and colored persons to frequent the same market places at the same time, or appear in an assemblage of citizens convened to consider questions of a public or a political nature in ■which all the citizens without regard to race are equally interested." Justice Harlan said he did not want to be understood as criticising the sys tem of public schools for the races, but that his censure was directed at the penal provision of the Kentucky law involved in this case.

ELIHU ROOT ROOT SLATED TO GET PLATT'S JOB PRESIDENT CONFERS WITH NEW YORK LEADERS State Assembly Speakers and National Committeemen Frame Up Plan with Executive, but Premier Denies Interest [By A»»oci»'«ii Pre»tl WASHINGTON, Nov. 9.—lt is the opinion In Washington that as a result Of a long conference at the White House today between President Roose velt, James Wadsworth, Jr., speaker of the New York state assembly, and William L. Ward, Republican national committeeman, the man who will be supported*by them next January to succeed Thomas C, Platt on March 4, 1909, as United States senator will be Ellhu Root of Clinton. N. V., the pres ent secretary of state. Neither Mr. Ward nor Speaker Wads worth would discuss the matter, but it is known that the secretary is not averse to accepting the candidacy pro viding he is assured there Is no oppo sition to him. President Roosevelt personally favors Secretary Root, but Speaker Wads worth said today he had received as surances from the president that he would not interfere in the selection of the next senator. When Secretary Loeb was asked whether the president had given this assurance, declared that there was no use for the president to interfere, leav ing the Inference that the matter al ready had been settled. • Secretary Root declared today he had made no announcement that he would be a candidate and that he could not discuss the matter. He had Just come from the president's office. Mr. Root said that he had "written several letters on the subject of the senatorshlp, but in ncnu of them had he said he would be a candidate. ARMY'S WAR COLLEGE AT WASHINGTON IS OPENED WASHINGTON, Nov. 9.—The formal opening of the army war college today was made the occasion of simple cere monies in the building dedicated to that institution. Secretary Root, under whose administration of the war de partment the institution for military instruction was inagurated several years ago; Gen. Franklin Bell, chief of staff, and Gen. W. W. Wltherspoon, president of the college, addressed a distinguished company. Secretary Root declared It was no strange thing that at the capitol of a country devoted to peace there should arise this structure devoted to the sci ence of the arts of war. Greed, Jealousy and spite have dis appeared among men, and prosperity, he said, only invites attack unless there is also the virile manhood and capacfty to defend the nation possess ing It. In order that this nation may bi able to defend Itself if need be, )■« said, the army war college had been created. "We are not a military nation, nnd never shall be," said Mr. Root. "We are warlike enough to rise In defense of our rights. We are singularly like the English and singularly unllka most of the nations of the continent. Our ideas are political and not military. \V« do not therefore naturally run In the mould of military organizations." Officers of the general staff, 'ie In sisted, should not allow their desire for power In military affairs to cause them to be absorbed by administration ratlver than by a study of military problems. He admonished them to set tle their military questions within the limits of the military establishment and not carry their controversies either to congress or to the people. BROTHER OF SANTA CRUZ POLICE CHIEF ENDS LIFE Cuts Throat After Desperate Battle with Old Man Who Tries to Prevent Suicide—Seized with Mania SANTA CRUZ, Cal., Nov. 9.—John F. Clark, a well known resident of this city and brother of the chief of po lice, committed suicide by cutting his throat with a razor after a desperate struggle with an aged man who at tempted to restrain him from obtaining the weapon. While at the home of one of his brothers, Clark was seized with an at tack of suicidal mania and was about to cut his throat with a carving knife when he was grappled by the only other occupant of the house, an old man named Reed. The latter succeeded in getting pos session of the knife, but Clark rußhed past him and secured a razor. Casting Reed from him he then ran from the house.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 10. 1903. POSTMASTER OF NEW YORK SHOT EDWARD MORGAN TARGET OF STENOGRAPHER FLIMSY EXCUSE LEFT IN NOTE BY ASSAILANT Would.Be Murderer, Once Insane, Ends Life After Attempting Crime—Had Shot Man in Boston NEW YORK, Nov. 9.—Postmaster Edward W. Morgan of this city was shot down In the street as he was leav ing his house in One Hundred and Forty-sixth street for the postoffice this morning: by Eric Bfl Mackey, a stenographer employed by a downtown law firm, who then shot and killed himself. The single bullet which struck Mr. Morgan entered at the right side of the nhdomen and passed out at the left side without penetrating the walls. There was no internal bleeding and there Is every likelihood that the wounded man will recover. The only excuse known for the shoot- Ing was that Mackey had complained to the authorities at the postoffice de partment In Washington that his mail had been tampered and that some one turned out an electric light when he was reading by It In the corridor of the postoffice. Mackey had received a reply that there was no evidence of tampering his mail and that the Incident of the light was an accident. Mackey's employers, the firm of Hunt, Hill & Betts, declared they could ac count for the tragedy only on the theory that Mackey was insane. Besides a revolver It was found that Mackey carried a dagger and a slung shot. Mackey was an Englishman, 31 years old, and formerly employed In Boston. Daughter It Witness The shooting took place in the pres ence of Miss Dorothy Morgan, the 14 --year-old daughter of the postmaster, who was accompanying him to the sub way station on her way to school. Mackey had-been pacing up and down the sidewalk near the corner of Broad way and One Hundred and Forty-sixth street for two hours before the shoot- When Mr. Morgan and his daughter left their home and walked toward Broadway. Mackey turned down the side street and met them. Evidently he had never seen the postmaster before, for as he met Mr. Morgan he asked: "Are you Postmaster Morgan?" At Mr. Morgan's affirmative reply Mackey drew his revolver and fired one shot into the postmaster's abdomen. The woundecj man fell to the side walk and as two witnesses of the shoot ing came running up Mackey lay down on the sidewßlk, opened his vest and sent one bullet Into his head and an other entered his heart. He was dead when the first man reached him. Mr. Morgan was carried into his own home, physicians were hastily sum moned and it was found the bullet had merely passed through the fle«hy por tion of tne abdomen for eight inches, inflicting a superficial wound. Does Not Know Him Mr. Morgan declared that he did not know Mackey and never saw him be fore the shooting. It was learned that a man answering Mackey's description had called at Mr. Morgan's home three times during the past ten days. Mr. Morgan has been connected with the postal service tn New York for more than a quarter of a century. He began his career as a letter carrier thirty-one years ago, and worked his way to the top. Last year he was promoted from as sistant postmaster to the position of postmaster to succeed William R. Wil cox who became a public service com missioner. Mr. Morgan is the Repub lican leader in the Washington Heights assembly district. Mackey left a letter In his room in which he declared that his act was the "last protest of a poor man against the custom of never enforcing laws against prominent or wealthy people." Mackey stated also that revenge was one of the motives which animated him and that he knew he was not morally Justified in killing the postmaster, and that most men would consider his act that of an insane man. He asserted that the postmaster had had a registered letter addressed to Mackey under a trade name and had insisted that he produce a certificate showing his right to receive such mall. Mackey declared that he was recon ciled for killing himself, because of his failing eyesight which, he said, would leave him only a bare existence for the rest of his life, and that he chose the postmaster as his victim be cause he was the most prominent man who had antagonized him. IS SON OF CAMBRIDGE MAN AND RECENTLY IN ASYLUM BOSTON, Nov. 9.—Eric B. Mackey, who shot Postmaster E. M. Morgan in New York city today arid then killed himself, was a son of H. W. B. Mackey of Cambridge, who is engaged in liter ary work. Mackey formerly lived in Cambridge, where he was employed at the fan tory of the Boston Woven Hoae and Rubber company. He was born near Dublin, Treland, and was about 15 years old when his parents came to Boston. About six years ago he shot a fellow employe be cause of a fancied grievance, and nt the trial was adjudged Insane and com mitted to the Worcester asylum, from which he, escaped In 1904. Eric Mac-key's sister, Anna, for the past few months has been a student at the training school for nurses In connection with the Anna Jacques hos pital at Newburyport, Mass. When informed of her brother's suicide fol lowing an attempt on Postmaster Mor gan's life, Miss Mackey became pros trated. / Owes Life to Girl Morgan was resting well late tonight, and unless complications develop he will recover. Mr. Morgan probably owes his life to the quick wit and bravery of his 14 --year-oid daughter Dorothy, who saw Mackey draw his revolver and struck it with her hand. This deflected the bullet, otherwise the postmaster would have been fatally wounded, for his assailant was at close range and fired four shots.

CITY WILL AID IN THE DEVELOPMENT 0E GREAT PORT (Continued from P»«e One) would remove this discrimination, and place cities governed by a freehold ers 1 charter on the same footing as cities under the general law, and this commission believes that this city should take the lead in bringing about this reform. We have accordingly pre pared a statement of reasons and r< so lutions which we recommend that you ■do now adopt, that this matter may be brought authoritatively to the attention of the coming legislature." Council Enthusiastic The council adopted the resolution enthusiastically. It is as follows: Whereas, The growth of the state of California, has been such that legislation, relating to the uniting under one government of cities, has not been such as to meet the condi tions that have been necessarily created thereby; and Whereas, The law now in force provides only for the annexation of contiguous territory; and the con solidation of cities under the gen eral law, and fails to provide a means whereby cities governed by a freeholders charter may unite, or may be united with city or cities organized under the general law; and Whereas, There are a number of cities now goverfled by freeholders charter that have grown until their boundaries adjoin those of other cities, creating such a condition that it is clearly for the interest of each thay they should be under one government; therefore be it Resolved, That the law as It now stands, unfairly unjustly discriminates' against cities gov erned by a freeholders charter in favor of cities organized under the general law, and that puLllc neces sity now demands that this dis crimination be abolished, and the law so amended, that two or more cities governed by a freeholders charter may consolidate and that a city governed by a freeholders char ter may be consolidated with any other city organized under the gen eral law; be It further Resolved. That we do most ear nestly request the legislature to re move this embargo, now placed by this unfair and unjust law upon the future growth and progress of cities governed by a freeholders charter by the repeal of the present laws relatir- to this subject, and enacting a new one or amending the present laws to meet present con ditions. Resolved further, That we do here by request Senators W. H. Savage, C. W. Bell, H. G. S. MacCartney, N. W. Thompson, H. M. Hurd, and Representatives H. G. Cottell, P. P. Cogswell, Harry Barndollar, Walter R. Leeds, P. A. Stanton, J. N. O.Rech, J. P. Transue, W. J. Han lon and Percy V. Hammon, mem bers of the legislature from Los Angeles county, to actively and ear nestly support a law that will re move this unfair discrimination; be it further Resolved, That the city attorney, in conjunction with the harbor com mission, bo and he is hereby in structed to prepare and present to the legislature a bill that will en able any city of whatsc^ver class, to unite or consolidate with any other city or cities. To Improve Water Front Just before this report and resolu tion were presented the council had passed another, on motion of Council man Dromgold, declaring it the sense of the council that all water front be improved as soon as it comes within the jurisdiction of Los Angeles. The resolution was presented by the Municipal Waterways association and was as follows: "Be it resolved, That the city coun cil approves and indorses the policy of improving all water frontage upon San Pedro harbor, inner and outer, so fast as same may come within the jurisdic tion of the city, such water frontage to be improved and maintained for public purposes by the municipality. "Resolved further, That whereas a plan is under way to sever from the city of San Pedro and annex to the city of Los Angeles 6000 feet of water frontage upon the west basin of the inner harbor of San Pedro, we improve and indorse the policy of immediate improvement for public and municipal uses of the whole of ruch water front by the erection of docks, wharves and warehouses and the connection of the same with the business district of Los Angeles with broad, direct and ma cadamized highways. PRESIDENT TO DINE BIG LABOR LEADERS Gompers, Morrison and O'Connell Not Among Guests, but Keefe Is.

The guests will include many na tional organization members and sev eral prominent judges and executive officials, but it is understood Presi dent Gompers, Secretary Morrison, Vice President O'Connell and T.

The guests invited include former President John Mitchell of the United Mine Workers of America, now one of the vice presidents of the Federation of Labor; President Keefe of the Longshoreman's union; President Mor rlssey of the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen; /ice President Duncan of the Federation of Labor, Grand Chief Stone of the Brotherhood of Locomo tive Engineers, Secretary Treasurer Dolan of the Inland Association of Steamshovel and Dredgemen, President Faulkner of the Amalgamated Window Glass Workers of America, T.

MORSE DECLARES HE IS A PAUPER RATED TWO YEARS AGO AS WORTH $20,000,000 New York's Famous "Frenzied Flnan. cler" in Appeal for Ball Reveals That He Is Comparatively Penniless # [Uy Associated Prrs?.] NEW YORK, Nov. 9.—Charles V. r. Morse, who was rated two years ago a3 being worth more than $20,000,000, swore under o&'th today that he had not enough money or securities left from his vast fortune to pay his debts. This revelation was made when Morse's attorneys appeared I" the fed eral court of appeals to argue for the admission of Morse to bail. Morse, who had been sentenced to fifteen years' Im prisonment at hard labor In the federal prison at Atlanta. Oa., was not per mitted to leave the Tombs prison to day, but an affidavit made by him was rend. The motion was argued before Judges Lacombe, Ward and Cox, and decision was reserved. It had not been expected that Morse would make the plea that he. was bank rupt, as ever since the financial panic which swept away the greater part oi his fortune ho had maintained that ha would be able to adjust his affairs to the satisfaction of all his creditors. Talks Forty Minutes W. Mace McFarlane appeared in his behalf and talked for forty minutes. The lawyer quoted from the opinion of Judge Hough in refusing to grant bail, in which Judge Hough said that no amount of bail would be sufficient to Insure the appe&Tance in court of such a wealthy man as Morse when he w;is wanted. Mr. McFarlane then continued: "I have an affidavit here from Morse him self, in which he states that he is not a rich man. Mr. Morse says that he is in a sense Impoverished and that his assets would not pay his debts, and that It Is doubtful if they ever would. If Morse is allowed bail his old friends would have to provide It. The state ment that he is a millionaire Is false, and further information will be given to the district attorney If he desires it." Fear He May Leave Mr. McFarland then went on to say that the only reason for refusing bail that he could see was the fear that Morso would run away. The lawyer called attention to the fact that when Morse was indicted he was on his way to Europe, but he came back imme diately. In referring to the sentence Imposed upon Morse, McFarlane termed it "ruthless and almost unprecedented." -United States District Attorney Stlmson, who prosecuted the case against Morse, said in opposing the granting of bail: "I believe that the right of granting ball in a case of this character should be exercised, if at all, by the trial Judge. "He is the one who is most familiar with the position of the defendant and his views, his discretion and his de cision are entitled to great weight. Judge Hough denied the application for bail and stated the two controlling causes in his decision, first, as to any reasonable ground of error, and, sec ond, the effectiveness of bail to pro duce the defendant when the final de cree of the court is to be passed." Declares It Ridiculous The district attorney said It was ri diculous to represent Morse as being a pauper in view of Morse's statements during the trial as to the extent of his financial transactions. He added it would bo wrong to permit a surety company to furnish bail, saying that a rich man could easily reimburse such a company, and that no one would be held personally responsible. "Mr. Morse is a traveled man and he knows the difference between a so journ in Paris and the sojourn that the law may hold out to him here," said thp district attorney. Before argument was made Lawyer McFarlane asked the court for thirty days additional time to file a second complaint in error and this was granted. The judges took all the important papers in the case and reserved de cision on the motion for ball. LORD MAYOR Of LONDON SEATED (Continued from Faire On*) now darkening Europe will soon dis appear without a storm. Isolation Condemned "There ought to be no talk of iso lation," continued the premier, "or of hostile grouping among the powers, who are the Joint trustees of civiliza tion and peace." Mr. Asquith referred briefly to the commercial outlook and thought if peace were made there was no reason why the present depression should be of long duration. Both the premier and Reginalf Mc- Kenna, first lord of the admiralty, dealt with the question of national defense, especially with reference to the navy. They declined to anticipate the next naval estimates, but the pre mier hinted that the cost of the navy was not likely to diminish, since, hav ing attained supremacy, the govern ment was firmly determined to main tain it. YON BUELOW TO EXPLAIN ACTION BEFORE REICHSTAG BERLIN, Nov. 9.—lt Is expected the debate on the subject of the emperor's interview which was published recently in a London paper, will be exceed ingly lively, probably taking up two days in the reichßtag.

VICTIM OF SHOOTING WAS WELL KNOWN LAWMAKER MEMPHIS, Te&n., Nov. 9.—Former United States Senator Edward W. Car mack was born near Castilian Springs, Sunnier county, Term., November 5, 1858. He had an academic education, studied law, practiced in Columbia, Term., and was a member of the legis lature In 1884. • He was a delegate to the national Democratic convention of 18^6, and a member of congress from 1897 to 1901 Irom the Tenth Tennessee district. He served with distinction in the United States senate for six years, being de leated for re-election in the primary a little more than a year ago by former Gov. Robert Taylor. Senator Carmack then resumed the practice of law In this city, which was then his home, but within a few months removed to Nashville. Ran Against Patterson Last spring he opposed Governor Patterson for the gubernatorial nomi nation, championing the cause of state wide prohibition. He was defeated. Shortly after hie defeat Senator Car mack was offered the editorship of the Nashville Tennesseean. He accepted, and since then had been at the head of that paper. Senator Carmack's newspaper career began in 1886, as a member of the ed itorial staff of the Nashville American. He founded the Nashville Democrat In 1889, and when it merged into the American he became editor-ln-chlef of the latter paper. In 1892 he became editor of the Com mercial Appeal, at Memphis. He was married in April, 1890, to Miss Eliza beth Cobey Dunnington of Columbia, Term. MADE SEVERAL BRILLIANT MEECHIS IN THE BENATE WASHINGTON, Nov. 9.—Senator Carmach during his Henatorlal carreer. from 1901 to 1907, made a number of brilliant speeches. Although inclined to be sarcastic in some of his utter ances, he made many friends in con gress among both Democrats and Re publicuns, who admired his fearless ness and hia intellectual attainments. Perhaps the most notable speech dur ing his four years in the lower house was his brilliant effort in his own de fense when Josiah Patterson, father of the present governor of Tennessee, con tested Carmack's seat.
