SHAW STATES HE HAS NO RESPECT FOR INSURGENTS Former Secretary of Treasury Upholds Stand Pat Meth ods of Legislation SAYS PEOPLE INCONSISTENT Declares South Is Ignorant on Politics' and Is Given Aiiyi y Denial [Associated Pressl CHICAGO, Juno 11.—Leslie M, Phaw, former Hecrptnry of the treasury, In speaking: before the members of the Hawkeyp, Fellowship club here today, scored "Insurgents" in the Republi can party, declared "standpat" Idea* were the only logical principles of gov ernment, and stigmatized the south as ignorant on political questions. Mr. Shaw's remarks concerning the south were given an unexpected dra matic twist when a southrrn-born newspaper man, who was reporting the address, so far forgot himself that he shouted: "It is not so!" "It is true," responded the former secretary as he reiterated his state ments. "The south is the best place In the world In which to make a speech," he said, "because the people are so ignorant of political questions. It is not their fault; the burden of the great struggle Is still on them. "But for all that, nowhere is there greater ignorance nor geater eagerness to know." Championing "standpat" methods of legislation, particularly in regard to the tariff law, Mr. Shaw said: "The people can't make the tariff. It would be as wise to expect the stock holders to run a railroad." SCORES THE INSURGENTS Earlier in his speech he took occa sion to make this statement regarding the "insurgents" in the Republican party: "I have no more respect for those people who style themselves Republi cans and are not than for those Demo crats who live in Florida and pretend to be Democrats and are not." Mr. Shaw had announced that he would speak upon the subject, "Evo lution in Politics." His digressions from the subject, however, became vastly more Interesting. "When I was nominated for governor in lowa in 1897," he began, "my can vass cost me exactly $250 and a great Democratic paper said that the ma chine was broken. No man in my state today could be elected without a ma* chine behind him unless he spent $500, --000. "This is evolution irj politics. "In Illinois not long ago a resident of the state of Washington entered the senatorial primary contest and he got 20,000 votes. "This, too, is evolution in politics. "Despite these things when some of us do not think the direct primary the highest form of government it is said we have lost faith with the common people. PEOPLE NOT CONSISTENT "We cannot be consistent In politics. We are so selfish, so greedy that we can't rise to the plane of citizenship. "When the tariff was being framed Minnesota sent men to Washington to see that barley was protected. Today in Minnesota every man who voted for a tariff on anything except barley is likely to be retired from public life. "I would say of the Insurgents what was said by a. famous man to the Dem ocrats: 'Ytou run the government? You? What do you know of govern ment? Why, we can hardly run the government ourselves.' "It takes a nervy engineer to run an engine on schedule on a foggy night. The fog is here for us, and there will be trouble ahead unless we begin to take care. "We have gotten to the point where we do not think of public questions. Newspapers do not discuss public ques tions candidly. But this is well enough, for if we did not like conditions we would have other papers. Sentiment of the section/is the thing that domin ates. God held us to get away from it. General principles are what we need. "Some time when the family feud is over, let us go back to the old home stead and again eat bread together." MAKES PLEA FOR FRESH AIR AT MOTHERS' CONGRESS DENVER.

PINCHOT ACCUSES CONGRESS; CHEERS GIVEN NEW PARTI Former Forester Declares Special Interests Control Body That Makes Laws SAYS PEOPLE ARE BETRAYED Insurgents Praised at Roosevelt Club Banquet—Garfield is Speaker [Associated Preasi ST. PAUL, Minn., June 11.—Former Chief Forester Gifford Pinchot and former Secretary of the Interior James R. Garfleld were guests of honor | at a reception and banquet given by the St. Paul Roosevelt club at the Ryan hotel tonight. '■ » The decorations of the speaker s table consisted of miniature moun tains, forests, waterfalls and roada with a miniature train propelled by electricity whizzing past. Justice E. A. .laggard of the Minne sota supreme court was toastmaster. introducing Judge Jags?ard, President Halbert of the Roosevelt club awakened the enthusiasm of the ban queters by a reference to an unnamed new party, "some of , the leaders of which," he said, were present. He said: "The Roosevelt club r has consistently stood for conservation of ideals and the conservation of men and against plunder and graft. "This country has lived on its capi tal, but at last has awakened to the fact that it will soon exhaust its natural resources by the inequitable distribution of Its wealth in direct violation of the law of equal oppor tunity of its citizens. | This condition has brought about the formation of a new party without name, but not with out an issue nor without leaders. "That party may be unnamed, but its leaders are Theodore Roosevelt and our honored guests, Gifford Pinchot and James R. Garfield." Mr. Garfield talked on the "Ultimate | Results of Conservation," and the set address of the evening- was that by Mr. Pinchot, who spoke on "Our National Resources and How to Con serve Them." SNAKE TO BE KILLED Mr. Pinchot said, in part: . "All monopoly, rests on the unregu lated control of natural resources and natural advantages, and such control by the special interests is Impossible without the help of politics. The al liance between business and politics is the most dangerous thing: in our politi cal life. It is the snake that we must kill. The special Interests must get out of politics, or the American people will put them out of business. There is no third course. "Because the special interest are In politics, we as a nation have lost con fidence in congress. This is a serious statement to make, but it is true. It does not apply, of course, to the men who really represent their constituents and who are makinr so fine a fight for the conservation of self-government. As soon as these men have won their battle and consolidated their victory, confidence in congress will return. "But in the meantime the people of the United States believe that, as a whole, the senate and the house no longer represent the voters by whom they were elected, but the special in terests by whom they are controlled. They believe so because they have so often seen congress reject what the people desire, and do instead what the interests demand. And of this there could be no better illustration than the tariff. "For a dozen years the demand of the nation for the pure food and drug bill was outweighed in congress by the interests which aKserted their right to poison the people for a profit. "Congress refused to authorize the preparation of a great plan of water way development in the general in terest, and for ten years has declined to pass the Appalachian and White-Moun tain national forest bill, although the people are practically unanimous for both. "The whole nation is in favor of pro tecting the coal and other natural re sources in Alaska, yet they are still in grave danger of being absorbed by the special interests. And as for the gen eral conservation movement, congress not only refused to help it on. but tried to forbid nny progress without its help. Fortunately for us all, in this attempt It has utterly failed. "This loss of confidence in congress is a matter for deep concern to every thinking American. It has not come quickly or without good reason. Every man who knows congress well knows the names of senators and members who betray the people they were elected to represent, and knows also the names of the masters whom they obey. A representative of the people who wears the collar of the special interests has touched bottom. He can sink no further." PINCHOT INVESTIGATORS ARE FAR FROM REPORT WASHINGTON. June H.—A meeting was held behind closed doors by the Eallinger-Pinchot investigating com mittee "today.

Owing to the prospective early ad journment of congress it is not ex pected the committee will be able to report the present session.

Noted Actress Who Appears Content to Have Nat Goodwin as Husband EDNA GOODRICH-GOODWIN SEPARATED? SURE— FOR A FEW WEEKS Edna Goodrich Says Reconcilia tion with Nat Goodwin to Fol low Jeff-Johnson Fight IXDNDON. June 11.—While the Cun arder Mauretania is plowing across the Atlantic, cutting down the distance between Nat Goodwin and the Jef fries-Johnson fight and Edna Goodrich Goodwin, on he« way to the Carlsbad baths, is widening the distance be tween her ajid her millionaire actor husband, the London friends of both are smiling over the International*fu ror that the reported intended mutual separation of the two has caused. Though for man- days besieged by discreet yet potent cruiosity of their friends, Nat Goodwin and his beautiful wife have maintained an amusing si lence regarding their plans for the fu ture and not until they were miles apart and the knowing ones had begun to say, "I told you so," was the cur tain dropped on the comedy. "Well," said the noted actress to a party she was entertaining at lunch eon a few hours after the Mauretania had sailed off with her husband, "you see we are separated and the breach is about to be very much increased." Her guests at once assumed the gravity appropriate to announcements of this kind. Hardly had they ar ranged themselves in the proper set ting of solemnity when Mrs. Goodwin upset the yhole business with these words: "But if you happen to run across me after July 4, be prepared to congratu late me on our reconciliation. Nat wanted to see that fight. I knew it all the time, and I also knew that it would be better for me to go to the baths than to rush awa" on such a lightning tour. So there you have it — a mutual separation for a few weeks. "They can't break up this happy family—there's no chance."

His father yesterday telegraphed Attorney Frank F. Pratt instructions to take charge of the case and to sDare no expense to free the young man. Another telegram • instructed the attorney to prepare for a consultation with the father in New York. ....
