O\t A>3 I>KH MONTH DELEGATES SPLIT ON STATE RIGHTS IN CONVENTION Californians in Center of Hard Battle Over Safety of Na tional Resources PINCHOT WINS IN SKIRMISH President Taft, Roosevelt and Pardee to Discuss Problems at St. Paul [Associate Press] ST. PAUL, Minn.. ! Sept. 4^-Polltics for and against "state's rights" in the matter of conservation of national re sources held sway ' today among the delegates gathered here to attend the second national conservation congress, which, beginning tomorrow, will con tinue until Friday night. , There will be addresses dealing with everything . from waterpower sites to conservation of bird life—plonty of —but the real interest of the con vention lies In the expected fight of the public land states for control of their own. natural resources, rather than by the federal government. Predictions are that there will be a fight in the resolutions committee and again on the, floor of the convention. As to the relative strength of the two factjons, nothing definite Is obtainable tonight. The public land states will, it Is said, be represented by full dele gations. Less interest is said to have been shown in the older states, where public lands are not a local issue. FAVOR NATIONAL CONTROL According to present plans, the friends of national control of public resources will proceed as if there' had never been a thought of state control. They do not intend to start anything. They admit that it will not be neces sary. . Governor Hay of Washington and a legion of others will attend to that at the first opportunity. On the opposite side from Governor Hay stands ex-Governor Pardeo of Califor nia, who held an impromptu reception in the lobby of the hotel tonight. , "About SO per cent of California's ■water, power, developed or otherwise, has been gobbled up," said the Call fornian. lam for national control, per sonally, but the delegation appointed by the governor is headed by a state control man, Judge Short. "The conference of governors at Salt Lake City demanded that capital bo properly represented on the St. Paul program, and Judge Short, who is at torney for a number of water power companies, was selected." The program calls, for addresses by President Taft tomorrow and Colonel Roosevelt Tuesday. James J. Hill, •who is a leader of the states' rights, and Senator Beveridge will address tha convention Wednesday. Clifford Pin chot, former national forester, " and president of the National Conservation association, will not speak until the last day. Henry S. Graves, the present chief forester, will talk on "The For est and Nation." PINCHOT OPENS HIS FIGHT Glfford Pinchot tonight inaugurated the fight for control of the national con servation congress, which will begin a five days' convention hero tomor row. '■ ■-...■- Mr. Plnchot had Intimated during the day that the faction favoring state control of national resources would have to make the first move if there , was to be a fight. However, he said he was not talking for publication. Meanwhile, visitor after visitor came to his rooms at the hotel and when not talking with these he was busy at the telephone. " . The significance of all this ill-con cealed bustle became apparent tonight when a commission was formed for the avowed purpose of bringing the state commissions into ■ touch with each other and into harmony with the National Conservation ■ congress. Of ficers were elected and a committee appointed to confer with the national body. The officers and members of 1 the committee are known as friends of ' Plnchot and national control of natural resources. G. E. Coundra of the Uni versity of Nebraska was elected presi dent, and J. C. Glpe of Washington, D. C., secretary. The following were placed on the committee: President Baker of the National Conservation congress; O. M. Griffith, Madison, Wls.; A. C. Hardtner, Urania, La.; W. D. Douglas, Seattle, Wash.; W.A. Fleming-Jones, Las Cruces, N. M.; W. H. Dye, Indianapolis, Ind.; E. L. Worssam, Atlanta; Henry A. Bark er, Providence, R. 1., and E. T. Allen, , Portland, Ore. • CLiEVEB\ COUNT BY PINCJIOT There are forty-two state conserva tion commissions, which were ap pointed after President . Roosevelt's famous i conference of governors at Washington. . The former president at the same time appointed a national commission which was to act as a sort of solar center to keep the state com missions in their orbit. Last year by an amendment to the sundry civil bill Congressman Tawney knocked out the national commission, and since then the state committees haveNbeen working according to their Wn ideas, in. the systematic fashion" desired by Mr. . Roosevelt. i ' - • By tonight's coup! as it is called, Mr. Plnchot la said to have played masterly politics in behalf of the na tional control • people, of whom ho is considered the field commander. Reports were current in the hotel lobby tonight that the state control , people have been playing a game of their own. It was admitted that the j truth of the report . could become known only on ; the floor of the con vention, but the rumors had it that three states not far from Lake Mich igan would send delegations, the mem bers of which are interested In water power sites. The state concerned have been considered safely In the national control camp,' and for this reason It was generally thought best to await confirmation of the reports. . < Two thousand i delegates is the esti- < 1 mate of the local committee. The fact that the president and Colonel Roose velt will be among the speakers and that the state fair begins tomorrow Is expected to add other thousands to the crowd. The sessions will be held iCodtUmcd •• ran Iwoj. LOS ANGELES HERALD RICHEST TOT IN U. S.

ARE WRECKED Many Men Are Thrown Out of Work by Destruction of Illinois Property (Associated Press) PEORIA, 111., Sept. The Lucas Bridge & Iron company's large plant in this city was completely wrecked by dynamiters tonight at 10:30 o'clock. Three terrific explosions reduced the plant to ruins, and six buildings, in cluding three saloons, were wrecked. Robert Gebhardt, a night watchman, was seriously, injured and was taken to the hospital. Dynamiters appeared again at mid night when two carloads of steel gird ers lying in the switch yards of East Peoria were demolished by the ex plosion. The cars had just arrived from the Pittsburg Steel works and were to be used on the Peoria and Pekin Union bridge, now. being con structed. The PKtsburg company is a non-union concern. The Peoria & Pekin Union railroad tonight offered a reward of $2000 for the apprehension of the dynamiters. The Lucas company has been oper ating an open shop, but can give no reason for the attempt to destroy the plant. About ten days ago dynamiters wrecked the large steel ■ spans to be used in the new Peoria & Pekin rail road bridge. While labor trouble is conceded as the cause, the police have been unable to find a clue. | In an interview late tonight, General Manager Johnson of the Peoria & Pe kin Union railroad makes the follow ing statement: "Construction work will be delayed on the new bridge for a short time only. This is the second delay since this bridge was started and animosity against 'open shop' structural steel workers is believed to have been the cause of the attacks." The Lucas company's plant is j the largest steel and iron concern in Peoria and many men will be thrown out of work through its demolition. . The main structure, in which ,v the explosion occurred, was a building 150 by 75 feet, and the charges of dyna mite apparently * were placed in the center of the building 'on the ground floor, and also In the business office, r.-hich was demolished. The .roof of the building was b own off and one end shattered. Secretary Emll Lucas of the Lucas company says tonight that while the plant will be out of commission for a number of weeks, the actual monetary loss will not exceed $20,000. BRANDED STANFORD STUDENT DELIRIOUS Acting Head of University Orders Rigid Inquiry in Foote Case PALO ALTO, Cal., Sept. i— Paul Foote, the student who mysteriously disappeared from Stanford university last Tuesday night and who wandered into the police station at Sacramento yesterday saying that he had been kid naped by four masked men, robbed and branded on the arm with tho figure "10," was taken to a local hospital to night In a delirious conditiom. In his delirium he continually pleads with his captors not to apply the hot wire to his body. Prof. J. C. Branner, acting president of Stanford university, and Prof. A. B. Clark, chairman of the students' af fairs committee, have ordered a thor ough investigation of the case. They will delegate representatives of the faculty and student body to accompany officers In an automobile over the route described by Foote as the one taken by the men who captured him. RETURNS SHOW WORKS WAS GIVEN PLURALITY Full Figures Received in Contest for United States Senator SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. %-Correct figures resulting from a complete tab ulation of the returns from all of the districts in California show definitely that John D. Works of Los Angeles was given a popular plurality over A. G. Spaldlng and E. A. Meserve in the advisory vote for the office of United States senator In the August primaries. But the returns also prove that Spald ing was the winner in the greatest number of counties. Works received 64,961 votes, Spald ing 63,461 and Meservo 12,863. Spalding captured thirty counties, Works twen ty-two and Meserve five, with Spald ing and Works tied In the other one. This will give Spalding 75 pledged leg islators. Works 39 and Meserve 6. J. R. KEENE, TURFMAN AND BROKER, SERIOUSLY ILL LEXINGTON, Ky., Sept. 4.—James R. Keene, tho New York millionaire stock broker and turfman, was strick en with pneumonia at an early hour this morning at a hotel here and is in a serious condition at the Good Samaritan hospital to which he was removed. Mr. Keeno arrived last night to visit his ctock farm, Castleton, noar here. POLICE ON GUARD TO KEEP RAILWAY OFF CITY'S LANDS Determined Action Will Be Taken to Prevent Work on For feited Concession S. P. IS ACTIVE AT HARBOR Officers and Laborers May Clash Today if Track Is Laid on Trestle Determined to prevent the Southern Pacific and the Huntlngton interests from making a belated attempt to hold franchises at San Pedro which the city has declared forfeited, the municipal authorities will use force today, if nec essary, to stop the laying of a track across a trestle connecting the Pacific Electric with the Huntington flit. There are prospects of a collision to day. For several days there has been much activity at San Pedro on the part of. workmen in the employ of the Southern Pacific and the Pacific Elec tric companies. It is surmised that the companies are endeavoring to hold frnachises already declared forfeited by councilmanic action because of their failure to initiate certain Im provements within the time fixed when the franchises were granted. MAY CLASH TODAY Police were stationed near the work men Friday to watch them. As what has been done up to date has been on land the companies control, no effort has been made to stop the work. To day, however, they may try to do work on ground to which the city de clares they have no further right. If they do, force will be used to stop the work. One hundred Southern Pacific labor ers yesterday laid a cross-over switch connecting the Southern Pacific spur to the south side of the Southern Pa cific slip and the double track Une of the Pacific Electric to the outer har bor, which was completed Friday. The object of the Southern Pacific company in rushing work yesterday was the cause of much speculation. Patrolmen watched the laborers all day. The connection gives the South ern Pacific a line to the concession of the Outer Harbor and Dock company, known as the Miner fill. Heretofore the Pacific Electric has had the only track reaching that concession. The dock company yesterday ran a train of flat cars with a locomotive out on the line and left It standing there to prevent the Southern Pacific from do- Ing any work on the fill. The locomo tive stands on the east boundary of the concession. POUOE WILI. INTERFBRK Just east of the locomotive there Is a trestle extending from the Pacific Electric track to the Huntlngton fill. It is feared an attempt may be made to lay rails on this trestle today. Should this be attempted it is expect ed that the police will Interfere with the work and that a clash between the. companies and the city will result. The work done yesterday is between the end of the Southern Pacific slip and *San Pedro street, on the right of way of the Los Angeles Interurban road. At the foot of San Pedro street, along the west side of which is a high bluff, It is only 125 feet between the slip and the east side of the street, and of this the railroad owns 115 feet. It is the plan of the city to condemn a strip along San Pedro street to in clude the remaining ten feet so that the street may be widened, and pro vide means for reaching the Hunting tion fill, the franchise for which has been declared forfeited and which the city proposes to improve for municipal docks and warehouses. METEOR SAID TO HAVE DESCENDED IN OREGON Heavenly Visitor Described as 100 Feet in Diameter PORTLAND, Ore., Sept. 4.—A meteor estimated to have been at least 100 feet in diameter, sailed across the Wil lamette valley shortly after noon to day and is believed to have plunged in-1 to the earth west of McMinnville, Yam. hill county. It was seen in the south west by a, number of persons in Port land and" at the same time by P. L. Ambler, postmaster at Mount Angel, 82 miles distant, who was looking to ward the northwest and also by several persons at Salem, Ore., 40 miles from Portland. All descriptions coincide. Because it was viewed from the three points simultaneously, J. W. Daniels, head of the astronomical department of Hill Military academy, declares it to have been of Immense size and at least five miles above the earth when seen. It is expected the Smithsonian institute will begin a search for the meteor. Thoie who saw the visitor declare the body appeared to their vision to be twelve inches in diameter, nearly round, and with a tail a rod long. From Portland a irall of smoke could afterward be discerned. SECOND VICTIM DIES OF CHOLERA IN BERLIN BERLIN, Sept. 4.—The second death from cholera occurred at Spandau to day, the victim being the Itusband o" the woman who died of the disease lasc week. All of the persons who are be ing held as cholera suspects are doing well and in a majority of the case» bacteriological searches have proved that cholera does not exist. 14 DEATHS BY CHOLERA BARI, Italy, Sept. 4.—Fourteen deaths from cholera and twenty new cases of the disease were reported, from the Infected district in south western Italy in the last twenty-four hours. Mrs. Charles Farwell Edson, Who Will Make Fight for Suffragists ■K^^Kyffiw&fc3liil?tsi^^ WOMAN TO PLEAD FOR PARTY'S AID Mrs. Charles Farwell Edson to Ask for Republican Equal Suffrage Plank Southern California women who are Interested in getting Into 7 the platform to be adopted by the Republican sta*e convention a plank declaring for equal suffrage are up in arms. They have heard that a committed of Republi cans at work on a tentative platform in San Francisco decided to eliminate such a plank when it was proposed. Last night Mrs. Charles Farwell Ed son, prominent in club circles and as a member of the Political Equality league of Los Angeles, left for San Francisco to demand such a plank in behalf of the women of Southern Cali fornia. Proir to the recent primary election many of the aspirants for office were put on record by the members of the Votes for Women club and the Politi cal Equality league as to their atti tude toward the question of giving wo men the ballot. Many declared in fa vor of it. Favorable reports came from the north, also, and it appeared that there would be no difficulty in securing a platform declaration in favor ot equal suffrage when the Republican state convention met. But recent re ports from San Francisco have caused alarm. Apparently such a plank will not get into the platform without a hard fight being waged in its behalf. San Francisco women Interested in the movement called for help from Southern California, and Mrs. Edson was delegated to go to that city and work with them to defeat the enemies* of equal suffrage. Reports from the north last night were that the plank had been thrown out and that efforts to have it put back would be fruitless. Mrs. Edson, however, expressed hope that when the women appeared In force and present ed their case favorable action would be taken.

ON TRAINS 10* CRACKSMEN BORE THROUGH A FLOOR Burglars Saw Way Into Broad way Store and Secure $1300 in Loot Burglars secured $1000 worth of goods and nearly $300 in cash from the salesroom of ■ the Cawston ostrich farm at 313 South Broadway during the early Hours; of Sunday morning, en trance having been gained by boring an opening In the floor of the Parisian tailoring, establishment, located direct ly over the Cawston salesroom, on the second floor of the Muskegon building. The burglars bored through the ceiling of the "salesroom and .by means of a rope made out of lining taken from the tailor shop, they slid to a balcony in the storeroom. Shortly after the . noon hour yester day word was received at the detec tive bureau that burglars had entered the '-Parisian tailoring establishment. Detectives Beaumont and Ingram were detailed on the case." They visited. the tailor shop, where . the proprietors in formed them that I on entering their place they noticed that the skylight was open and that a pearl-handled re volver had been stolen. The detectives were looking for clews, when they pulled aside a screen which was set in front of a table in a dressing room. They then saw the newly made open ing leading into the salesroom below, and In this manner learned that Caw ston's store had been burglarized. USE LINING FOR ROPE A bolt of lining had been unraveled and one end tied to a pipe at the Bide of the room. The other end dangled just above the floor in the . salesroom. The detective.? made their way down this rope and were given mute evi dence of the intruders' visit by an open safe, broken till and disarranged show cases. J Mrs. L. T. Peacocke, manager of the salesroom, was notified, and on appear ing at the store informed the detec tives that the . safe had contained $299.75. The door to the safe had been closed, but not locked, and the men had no difficulty in obtaining the money. They pried a till from one of the counters, but did not obtain any coin from it. The till contained $'.10 which the men overlooked. Mrs. Peacocke made a hurried inven tory, and stated ■ that [nt least $1000 worth of plumes, boas and fans had been taken. The burglars ignored all the medium class goods and took noth ing but the highest 1 priced articles. The detectives stated that the * loot could easily have been carried away in two suit cases. The burglars found- a ladder In the store, and -placing this under the open ing In the .ceiling,, again made their way .to .the: tailoring establishment. They first gained entrance to this place 1 through a- skylight which had not been, locked, fj They went up the stairway at 307 South .Broadway, then reached the: roof, and on opening the skylight swung down into the room. On returning to the room after bur glarizing I Cawston's, they . had no trouble in unlocking the spring catch, and in this i manner made their way to the outer hall and then to the. street. Before % departing j they replaced the table over -the. opening and set; the screen in front of it. • • PROFESSIONALS 1 WORK ■ The , detectives assert that the bur glary was 'the work of professionals, who ' went' about the Job without a blunder and left without leaving a clew. The opening measured 16 by 18 Inches, and was made with a brace and bit. The detectives stated that it took about one j hour's labor to ■ make the opening. The distance from the floor of the tailor shop to the balcony In Cawston's Is about twelve feet. This platform contained an assortment of medium priced plumes, but the men did not touch them. The plumes, fans and boas taken by them were in the front show case and were the highest priced art icles In the store. v < •■• Notice of the burglary has been tel egraphed to the police of nearby cities. It is probable that the men who turned the trick are still In Los Angeles, but no suspects have been detained. Q.CENTS CROWDS COMPEL SUNDAY SPEECHES FROM ROOSEVELT Former President Responds to Clamor of Citizens in Dako tas and Minnesota SENATORS EXTEND WELCOME Thousands Assemble in Fargo to See Laying of Library Cor ner Stone Today [Associated Presa] FARGO, N. D., Sept. 4.—After an all day ride through parts of South Da kota, Minnesota and North Dakota, former President Roosevelt reached Fafgo early this evening:. The people of Fargo were waiting at the station for him and gave him a great welcome, despite the fact that It was Sunday. It was after midnight when Colonel Koosevelt got to bed last night. "Like Welter's Thanksgiving turkey, I am old and tough," said he, Just be fore he retired, "but there are limits." Those traveling with him c->, M? western trip have been astonls at his endurance. He has attended break fasts before 7 o'clock and dinners that lasted until late at night, and he h^u made so many speeches since lio left New York that he cannot estimate th* number. But last night he admitted that he was tired. He instructed -his secretary to send telegrams to towns through which he was to pass tod, saying that as It was Sunday he would make no speeches whatever from tho train. CROWDS JIEMAND SPEECH The special train scooted across the eastern edge of South Dakota on l Into Minnesota, and for the first part of th« morning Colonel Roosevelt enjoyed himself sitting In an easy chair and reading a book. Then the engineer slowed down for. Marshall, the first atop. Colonel Roosevelt continued to read his bock. There was a shout out side. A crowd closed around the rear platform. The colonel's telegram had arrived, but the people had paid no at tention to It. "Teddy! Teddy! Come out!" the crowd shouted. "Let's see you." The colonel hesitated a moment. The shouts grew louder. He laid down his book. Some of the people saw him through the window, and cheered. He arose, and there was another cheer. He walked to the door and thrust his head through. The cheer developed Into a yell of greeting, and the ■ colonel could not resist. He walked out to the platform and In an Instant men and boys were scrambling upon the railing, trying to shake his hand. After he had shaken hands with everyone In reach the colonel stepped back. COLONEL HAS TO SUBMIT "Speech! Speech!" the crowd ehbut ed. Colonel Roosevelt took another step as though about to go back into the car, but the cries of "Speech! Speech!" grew louder and he capitu lated. : The same thing happened at every place at which the train stopped and Colonel Roosevelt surrendered uncon ditionally and spent the rest of the day In making speeches at every sta tion at which the train stopped. The people came out with bands and flags, dressed in their Sunday clothes, I and swarmed on the tracks behind the train. They stayed there until the train started and followed It down the track until the cars got under head way. The colonel made more speeches today than on almost any other day since he began his trip. The crowd at Wilmar, Minn., was one of the largest of the day. As it was Sunday Colonel Roosevelt said he thought a sermon from him would be more fitting. He told them the Amer icans should have three qualities In order to succeed as a nation. First he mentioned honesty and then courage. "But honesty and courage are not enough," he said. "In addition you need the saving grace of common I sense. If a man is a natural born fool you can't do much with him." ■ SENATORS EXTEND WELCOMES At Breckenridge, Minn., Senators Mc- Cumber and Purcell of North Dakota got on the train. At Wahpeton. the first station across the line in North Dakota, a reception committee ap peared, headed by Mayor Everly of Wahpeton, and took the colonel In hand. When the train reached Fargo the largest crowd of all was on hand. The reception committee got off the train and tried to persuade the people to go away, saying that Colonel Roose velt was tired, but they stayed until the colonel came down the steps and, cheered him loudly. Then they fol lowed him to his hotel,, where the col-« onel retired to his room, saying he waa going to have the evening rest any way and that he would make no fur ther appearance until tomorrow. Thousands of persons have come to Fargo for tomorrow's Labor day cel ebration. Fargo expects one of the largest crowds in its history. Colonel Roosevelt will lay the corner stone of the Carnegie library at Fargo eolloge tomorrow morning. In the af ternoon there will be a parade through , the city and to Island park, where Col onel Roosevelt is to make his chief speech of the day. He will leave for St Paul in the evening and begin his homeward trip. Since he has left N;-w York the colonel has pelted through fourteen states and his traveled ap proximately 3700 miles. When Colonel Roosevelt reached the hotel where he was to sleep tonight he found 100 little girls waiting for him. They were sitting on the floor In the hotel parlor and every little girl . had a Teddy Bear in her arms. As soon as the colonel appeared they cho rused: "Welcome. Teddy Roosevelt!" at the same time lifting the Teddy Bears In salute. , "Why, hello," said the colonel. "This is fine. Never in all my life did I sea anything like this." He stopped for a few minutes ana talked with the girls. "I'd like to stay longer and tell you stories about lions In Africa," hi said, "but some of you are so little that I am afraid my stories would keep you , awake tonight."
