Doubts About Reid With regard to tlie post of ambas sador to Great Britain, it was said to day thai there la no definite under standing as to .lust how long Wliitelaw Reid will continue to serve. Early in his administration President Taft of fered the post to 'resident J_liot of 1 Harvard university, who was about to retire from active duty as head of that Institution. Mr. Eliot considered ' the matter for gome weeks and finally declined. Mr. Keid villi i President 'J' ift at Beverly last summer, and it was gen erally understood at that time that he would continue In the diplomatic serv ice until .i successor could be found. So far the president has not been able to select the man lie considers in every way fitted to succeed Mr. Held. When recently in consultation with Secretary Knox regarding the dlplo i matlc list the British post was reached, the president asked that it he passed lor the time being. Thus the matter stands. Dr. David Jayne Hill, ambassador to Germany, returned to his post at Ber lin recently after a trip to this coun try without any definite knowledge as to whether he was to be retained by President Taft. A no successor to *.]> Hill appeared among tin* diplo matic appointments today, it Is pre sumed he will continue to serve in definitely.

HARRIS EXPIRES IN CHICAGO WAS NOTED AS A BREEDER OF SHORT HORN CATLE Prominent Leader in Live Stock World Is Stricken by Heart Disease After Attending an Exposition [As*<vlat*.l Pre*«] CHICAGO, Dec. 20.—Former United States Senator W. A. Harris of Kansas died suddenly here today at the home of a relative. Heart disease was given us the rinse* of death. William Alexander Harris was United States senator from Kansas from 1897 ;to IMS. He dli i at the home of his , sister-in-law, Mrs, I.ydia M. Maekay. , Senator Harris had been In Chicago for Is month, having me hero to attend ; the international Live Stock exposition, |In which he was Interested. Ie wan apparently In good health when sud denly stricken. Senator Harris was horn in Virginia in 1841. He served with honor In the Confederate army as assistant adjutant genera] and ordinance officer. In 1565 he moved to Kansas, where he became engaged as a Civil engineer in the construction of the Kansas division of the Union Pacific railroad. Since 1576 ho has been prominent throughout the United States as a farmer and breeder of pure bred short born cattle.

TAFT TO END PINCHOT FEUD (Continued from Pare One) termlning the form of inquiry will be threshed out between now and the re convening of congress on January 4. This whole subject gives promise of heated discussion among members of both houses of contrress, and it Is not unlikely that the Investigation will at length be put in tlie hands of a joint special committee representing both. Ordinarily an investigation of tills character would fall to the committee on public lands in one house or the other. These committees are made up, how ever, largely of men from western states who have in one way or an other take sides in the controversy and whose Interests might be regard ed as possibly interfering with an un biased judgment. One thing appears certain—the in vestigation, whoever makes it, must be relentless—and everybody seems agreed that it must be absolutely public, It is admitted that anything in the nature of "star chamber" proceedings would satisfy no one. Th. entire department of the interior so far as It concerns public land and mineral and water rights, it is agreed, must be barel to the in blight, from the time when Ballinger was commissioner general of the land of fice under the Roosevelt administra tion down to the present time. The position of Mr. Ballinger and his friends goes beyond any question of personal controversy and they and those *.*. ho voice the attitude of the administration disavow any desire to "convict somebody else" in order to vindicate the secretary of the interior. For Instance, it is denied that the interests of the department of agri culture and its forest service, of which Clfl'ord Plnch'ot is chief, will bo rec ognized us having any important Stake in this business.

J., for twenty years prior to 11)07 foreign chaplin at the watering place of San ltemo, where it Is alleged th.* religious marriage cere- I mony uniting King Leopold and Bar oness Vaughan was performed, Is'now a resident of this city. When seen today by the Associated Press, Father Egglofstein denied he had performed the ceremony Which hud united the king of the Belgians arm the baroness, but said it was prob- I nblo the two were married at the Ital ian summer resort. it was a part of Father Egglofstein's duties to marry foreign visitors and he did perform many such ceremonies, but ha would have known had the Bel gian ruler sought to be married by him under an assumed name.

Aged Senator Who Scores La Follette for Criticism gggpgEgz: ; z A__Wmmm\\ ___________ >j CHAUNCEY M. DEPEW WASHINGTON, Dec. 20.—Chauncey IV .M. Depew today sarcastically ' ' thanked Senator LaFollette in a speech on tho door of tho senate for associating him with President Taft in a criticism appearing in ■ recent issue of iii, Wisconsin senator's magazine. As a preface, Mr. Dept read from th. president's annual message references to the prosperous outlook In the United Stat, and said ill spite of tin por trayal of good times, from ii competent authority, the nation "is now burdened BROKAW'S WIFE HEARS ACCUSER BUTLER SAYS SHE SMOKED AND ALSO DRANK One of Witnesses for Millionaire Says He Forbade Spouse to Visit the Plaintiff's Home Because of Talk [Associated Press] NEW YORK, Dec. 20.—Cocktails and cigarettes, which have figured promi nently in the suit for separation brought liv Mrs. Mary Blair Brokaw against her husband, W. Gould isro kaw, again assumed Importance today in the trial at Mineola, L. 1. Sidney Woods, the Brokaw butler, testified for the defense that lie had served cocktail! to Mrs. Brokaw in a teacup. In tumblers, in a shaker, when .-!:.. was up and dressed and when she was in bed. He was positive that he had seen Mrs. Brokaw puffing cigarettes and that he had served her with them in iter room. During her butler's testimony Mrs. Brokaw, who. In her own testimony, would only own to an experience of four cocktail! and an occasional cig arette, sat open-mouthed. "I carried a cocktail to Mrs. Brokaw in the sun parlor," continued the but ler, 'and sue mentioned to me that ■die had discharged her nurse, Mies See. 1 told her that Miss Sco had asked me for liniment to apply to bruises which she said had been caused by kick! and lashings from a whip.'' Mrs. Brokaw Knew "Was the name of the person men tioned." asked counsel, "who applied tho whip or did the kicking." "Mrs. Brokaw knew who .lid it," re plied the butler. Was anything said to indicate that she had knowledge of the cuts on Miss See's limbs?" "Mrs. Brokaw was very cross and nobody asked her." Justice Henry H. Gildersleeve. a friend of Mr. Brokaw, testified be had spent some time at High Point, N. •'.. the Brokaw winter country home, and 1i,,,' always found the husband kind and affectionate toward his wife. The case has been brought up to a point where testimony of friends of the defendant gives a new twist to tales of various occurrences on the Brokaw es tates. Quarrels with her husband which Mrs. Brokaw said were brought about by Mr. Brokaw'i unreasonable Jeal ousy and ill temper have been asserted by guests of the Brokaws at High Point, L. 1., and elsewhere to have been trivial for the most part, and as much the fault of Mrs. Brokaw as of her husband. It is expected the trial will be con cluded this week. Mrs. Brokaw'i constantly reiterated tales of trouble so annoyed Mrs. 11. B. Gilbert, Mr. Brokaw's sister, that Mr. Gilbert forbade her coming to their bouse, Mr. Gilbert testified. Troubles Imaginary Tho troubles, In their Inception at i-.ri.t, were largely imaginary, Mr. Gil bert' thought. So far as actual barring of Mrs. Brokaw from his home was concerned, Mr. Gilbert said on cross examination ho could not recall an instance when she as ri Fused admission. Asked if Mrs. Brokaw had not asked his protection the witness did not re member the incident, nor did he recall Mrs. Brokaw'i sending her maid home for her persona] belongings. Mr. Brokaw was excited, "very ex cited," that night, Mr. Gilbert remem bered. Brokaw might have been drinking, and certainly was very much fatigued. He thought Brokaw might be laboring under what the cross ex amination lawyer finally defined for him as "trivial exhilaration." He did not think it strange that Mrs. Brokaw Should have come to his home that night when she had a home of her own. She did not know her husband was at the Gilbert home when she came there, tho witness stated. Attorney Baldwin wanted to know if Brokaw had not made Air. Gilbert and his wife the medium through which to obtain Information about Mrs. Brokaw. Mr, Brokaw was a "highly solicitous man." Mr. Gilbert admitted, and would not state positively that Mr. Brokaw had never wired the witness to find if Mis. Brokaw had "gone to town." ■ with a pessimistic prophecy" coming from Senator La Follette. "His holiday greeting," said Mr, De pew, referring to Mr. LaFollette, "is a severe criticism of the president and of myself. I thank him heartily for this association." The address of the New Yorker was called forth by what he characterize,! as the pessimistic predictions in (Sen ator) LaFollette's magazine, and In ; many newspapers as to the effect of the tariff upon prices and as to the | waste of natural resources.

FRUIT GROWERS COMPLAIN FREIGHT RATES EXCESSIVE California Concern Declares Tariff on Citrus Shipments Is Extortionate and Discriminatory WASHINGTON, Dec, 20.—1n a com plaint filed today with the Interstate commerce commission the freight rates on citrus fruits from Pacific coast point! to other pails of the United States are declared to bo excessive, extortionate and unduly discrimina tory.
