Ambassador to Berlin Respons ible For Trouble Over Ap pointment of Hill KAISER DENIES TAKING PART 8ummary Recall of Tower Expected as -Result of Developments Emperor William Denies Reports That He is Displeased With Dr. Hill as Ambas- •'fetsador. iff Washington, March 28—So grave has become the question of veracity between the German foreign office and Amb&ssador Charlemagne Tower re garding the acceptability of David J&yne Hill as ambassador of the United States to Emperor William's court that a continuance of Mr. Tower in Berlin •will probably prove impossible and he may 'be withdrawn without delay. His fate depends entirely upon a let ter which he mailed to the president on March 23, and which should arrive here next Tuesday. In the meantime it would not be sur prising should Emperor William make a, contribution to literature of the in cident, which will be In the shape of a denial that he authorized Mr. Tower to go as far as he did in reporting that he would not receive Dr. Hill. The developments in the situation thus far are as follows: Baron Speck von Sternberg on Nov. 24 last formally notified the president that the emperor gladly would receive Dr. Hill as Mr. Tower's successor. Mr. Tower on March 19 cabled to the atate department that lie had been in formed by the emperor that Dr. Hill -was unacceptable because of his fail ure to accord proper treatment to Prince Henry of Prussia when the lat ter visited ttie United States in 1902. By direction of the president Secre tary Root on March 22 sent an in struction to Mr. Tower expressing «reat surprise at the change in his majesty's decision and suggesting that the president was greatly embarrassed and that further explanation was in order. Replying to this message, Mr. Tower cabled Secretary Root that he had mailed on March 23 a letter present ing the objection made by the emper or and the full details of the conver sation which he had held with his majesty. The report, of the alleged objection to Dr. Hill was first published on March 25 under, the date of Berlin, indicating that some one interested in preventing a change in the embassy had "permitted the news to leak out. It has been established, thru the of ficial denial of the statement that Dr. Hill was not acceptable, that the for eign office did not make the informa tion public. Plot Somewhere Is Evident. It is evident from a consideration of these facts that! what, in effect, is a plot, has been under way in the Ger man capital to prevent the supersesqjon of Mr. Tower. That the ambassador had anything to do with it is denied «arnestly by his friends. But in con sidering the whole case attention should be given to the view of the of ficials that it was not in the province •f Mr. Tower to report any objection to the acceptability of Dr. Hill. Un der a rule usually observed in such cases communication respecting a dip lomatic representative is made thru the ambassador of the country making the communication. But Mr. Tower is exceedingly close to the German emperor. He has reported the conversations previously held with hi? majesty and lie may have conclud er that.lt was his duty to transmit the emperor's opinion with respect to Dr Hill. He is an extremely punc tilious man and has had such long dip lomatic experience that it is the belief of those acquainted with him that he would not have made a report on this subject had he not been told, not once, but several times, to do so. At the same time, in view of his-par ticular situation, it is conceded by his friends that it might have been wiser for him to have permitted the matter to pass thru the hands of the German ambassador in Washington. Tower Oblivious to All Hints. It is no secret in well informed circles that the president has been quite will ing for the last two years that Mr. Tower should leave the service. This was not due to any dissatisfaction with the ambassador's conduct, for he ren dered good service, both at St. Peters burg and Berlin, but because it was be lieved he had enjoyed his share of political fortune and should make way Sr1 for some other man whose eminence deserved recognition. Mr. Tower was oblivious, however, to the hints that, it is said, were thrown out at him. Political influence was ex- erted in his behalf. Senator Penrose of Pennsylvania, being his strongest sup porter in this connection. The ambas $ sador claimed lie deserved considera tion in part because, upon his arrival in Berlin, he had leased house for which he paid a rental of $20,000 a year and had spent a large sum in making it suitable for service as the embassy S' of the United Slates.

The debute arose over certain anti-Finnish inter pellations in the Russian luma. EXPANSION IN TRADE. Spring Business Shows Decided In crease in All Lines. Now York, March 28.— Bradstreet's today says: The tirst week of spring has seen an expansion in retail trade and an en largement of operations iu building lines, especially at the west. Trade in the primary branches is quiet, and op erations in industrial lines are below normal. Fall trade is backward, con ditions are still very irregular, and short or reduced time is practically universal. The iron and steel industry does not show much increase in activity outside of the seasonable lines, such as nails, wire and tin plate, which have shown increased interest for some weeks past. The textile trade is still depressed, with short time and wage reductions common in cotton goods manufacture north and south. Fear of a eoal strike has subsided and buying is less active in this line. The leather and shoe trades are irregular and unsettled. Buying is conservative, and while or ders are small they are often urgent. Until high cost stocks are out of the way, there will be apparently little free buying. Shipments of shoes are. 2i per cent below last year. Business failures for the week end ing March 26 number in the United States 268, against 166 in the like week of 1907.

NAVY SEAL BROKEN Great Excitement in Caracas Over Opening of Three Pouches of Official Mail Intended for American Cruiser Tacoma Said to Have Been Ac cident. Caracas, Venezuela. March !!S.—Am erican Minister Russell, in a note dated March 21. advised Dr. Paul, the Vene zuelan minister, that three pouches of official mail for the American crusier Tacoma, haJ been opened in the La Guairia postoffice. Russell said that ii was a very serious thing to break the seal of navy correspondent. and he asked for an investigation. Dr. Paul answered Russell's note yesterday, en closing a report from the LaGuaira postmaster. He said that the opening of the pouches was accidental, and due to the fact that the seals on them were similar to others in use in the La Guaira postoffice, and that it was cus tomary to open. In addition, Paul said that only a prejudiced mind could call the occurrence "very serious," as the contents of the pouches had not been disturbed. The incident coupled with the return of the Tacoma to LaGuaira today, has caused great cxciteinent in Caracas. FIRST THEFT FATAL. Young Philadelphia Man Stole to Aid Widowed Mother.

British Scientist Returns From Alaska With an important Announcement AMERICA WARMER, ASIA COLDER Heavy Masses of Ice Moving Arctic Circle Westward—Complications May Arise Over Boundaries of British and United States Territory in the Far North. Victoria, B. C., March 2S.—That the .north pole is shifting and the climate is changing, making the northern ter ritories of this continent warmer and northern Asia colder, is the theory to support which Moses B. Colworth, of York, England, has been gathering ev idence in Alaska, from whence he has returned on his way to England. A cur ious effect of this change, it is said, may be a number of boundary difficul ties between Canada and the United States, especially in the eastern por tion. The boundary is tixed by latitude, and if the north pole is really moving, the latitudes change, also rendering it advisable that the boundary be speedily marked everywhere by permanent monuments where it has not yet been so marked already. This movement, Colworth says, is caused by the immense accumulation of ice along the Canadian shore of the Arctic ocean, especially in Baffin's land and Greenland. The incalculable weight of the inconceivable mass is, by force of gravity, slowly pushing the crust of the earth, and consequently the north pole and the Arctic circle generally, over towards Siberia, where there are no immense accumulations of glacial ice to counteract the movement. The result is that North America and Europe are getting warmer and Si beria and Asia generally colder. INCREASE IS REMARKABLE. Statement of New York City State Bank and Trust Company Deposits. Xew York, March 28.—As'evidence of the rapid return of confidence in the financial institutions of New York state, the banking department today called attention to a remarkable in crease in deposits during the past four weeks in state banks and trust com panies of this city. Since the inaugura tion of the new plan of -weekly state ments from these institutions, it has been possible to accurately guage the exact financial situation. From the compilation of figures shown during the last four weeks, the state banks have increased their deposits $12,442. 000. and the trust companies have gained $25,947,000. Adding to these fig ures the deposits of the Knickerbocker Trust Company, the total gain in de posits is shown to be $75,428,000. TURN ABOUT FAIR PLAY. Bryan Says, "Why Not. Call Recent "Scare*, Republican Panic?" Wheeling. W. Va.. March 28.—Wm. Jennings Bryan, while en route to Parkers burg, where he speaks tonight, made a brief stop here today and ad dressed one of the largest open air meetings seen in Wheeling for some time. His remarks were chiefly on the money question in connection with business depression. Bryan referred to the panic in 1893, which he said was called a democratic panic because de mocracy was in power. "If it was logic, then why should it not be logic now to call the present panic, a republican panic?" he said. DISCUSS NEXT YEAR'S SCALE.

Special to Times-Republican. Des Moines, March 28.—The state pure food and dairy commissioner has succeeded in getting another point in the pure food law established. It may "ne carried to the higher courts but the department has won in the lower court. The i^iint is that a grocer can not sell adulterated foods from the bulk even if the bulk package is prop erly labeled. The department has been expecting a suit of the kind for some time. It came when a Djs Moines grocer sold some lard. The lard was contained in a large package' on the counter. The crock was properly labeled that the lard was 90 per cent pork lard and 10 per cent beef fat. Persons asking for lard were supplied from that package. The small -package wrapped up for the customer was not labeled. The department con tended in the suit that if the grocer wa: allowed to do that he could as legally have the bulk package of lard sitting under the counter or in the back room where no one could see the la bel. The pure food department is insist ing on strict construction of the law as the only means of protecting the pub lic. It is contended that people have a right to know what they are paying for. A label on the bulk package more often than not would be of no service whatever to the public for more often than not the customer would not see the package from which it was taken. When the r-ilroad commission yes terday put ixN commodity rate^ for distances of 290 to 380 miles it pui^the •Local ppQpj,, jn an the r|ver towns of Iowa on an equal footing with the people living in the river towns just across the river outside of Iowa. For some time the people of R6ck Island have been able to ship to Council Bluffs at a less rate than the people of Daven port who were the distance across the river nearer to Council Bluffs. The same thing has been true at Burling ton, Clinton and Dubuque. The rate from the towns across the river in Il linois to Council Bluffs under the in terstate rates was 22.5 cents and the distance from the Iowa towns 28 cents. The rate on these same commodities under the Iowa distance tariff for. 290 miles was 22.5 cents but for 380 miles it was 28 cents. The commission has made the rate a flat rate after 290 miles. This gives the Davenport peo ple a chance to ship entirely across the slate for the same rate that the Rock Island people pay. These rates were put in on brick, furniture, paper, agricultural implements and wagons. At the same time the commission granted the petition of the Corn Belt Meat Producers' Association for better sheep rates. At the recent hearing be fore the commission, it was shown that Iowa sheep feeders are discrim inated against in the matter of sheep rates. Other western states have a feeding in transit rate which allowed the sheep men to buy sheep in New Mexico and other western countries on the range, and ship them to their farms and feed them and then ship them on to the market at one thru rate. Iowa sheep feeders were not given the same advantage. The rates on sheep were so high that it was taking much of the profits of the busi ness. Th4 rate was higher than the cattle rate, and furthermore, because it was impossible to get enough sheep into a car, the shipper had always to pay for more sheep than lie actually shipped. The new rate applies the cattle rate to double deck sheep cars and puts the rate on sheep for feeding at 75 per cent of the rate on sheep on their way to market. The reduction on the sheep rate is another in a series of victories for the Corn Belt Meat Producers' Association in getting rates lowered. Judge S. F. Prouty, who ts a candi date for congress in the Seventh dis trict against Congressman Hull, came nearer to being elected to congress twice than perhaps any other man. In his first campaign against Hull, when the old caucus and convention system was in force, Hull controlled the Polk county central committee, all Dubuque, March 28.—A Milwaukee train from the north last night, ran into a large boulder which had tumbled of the committeemen being Hull men onto the tracks from the overhanging with the exception of one, Walter Ir bluffs, but was not derailed.

Eighty five more people in Polk county voted for Prouty than did for Hull, but the returns showed that Hull had a major ity of the delegates to the county convention.

March 28.-—The Cedar Falls high school won by unanimous decision last night in in the debate' with the Burlington tea.m. Cedar Falls is now champion of eastern Iowa. always claimed that a majority of his delegates were elected, but the Hull people had the machinery of the party and the ballots and poll books were soon afterward destroyed, and it was Impossible to prove it. The returns showed that Hull had Polk county. and Polk county and one other county in the congressional convention con trolled and made the selection. In the next campaign Prouty had ihe central committee on his side, and on the eve of the election the Hull men started the canard about the "tis sue ballots." It was too late to con tradict. anything with success. Prouty undoubtedly would have carried Polk county overwhelmingly had it not been for the "tissue ballot falsehood." If it were not for the primary elec tion law Judge Prouty would not b,e a candidate for congress this year. With the primary election law to work under lie is confident and his friends are con fident that he will carry the district and receive a plurality of the votes. There are now three candidates in the field. Congressman Hull. Senator War ren, of irion county and Judg Prouty. Mrs. Warren and Mrs. Proi*^? are sisters. Judge Prouty expectfv devote his time from this on j? largely to a speaking campaign .t out the district. Heretofore the .m paigns for congress in the Seventh dis trict have been confined to Polk county and practically to Des Moines. The candidate who got the Des Moines del egates could control the county conven tion and the county controlled the dis trict. Now under a primary law a vote counts anywhere even in the remotest corner of the district and the voters In the other counties of the Seventh dis trict will have a voice in the selection of congressman as well as the voters of Des Moines. The speaking campaign will therefore extend over the entire district. Gen. Granville M. Dodge has pre sented to the state of Iowa one of the most valuable gifts any citizen has yet bestowed. He has given five big boxes full of official correspondence and doc uments covering the time when he was in the civil war and during all his pub lic career. This material is a rich mine of historical material that has not been available to the public heretofore. It will be classified at once and put in shape in the historical building. It is believed that Gen. Dodge's ex ample will be followed by many other public men. Iowa lias reached the point in her history where the men most act ive in the early life of the state are just now approaching their sunset. Many of these men have correspond ence and other material that is of very great value and unless they give this to the state during their lives it will be quickly lost after their death. Mifeh of it could not be replaced, if once lost. ONE CONVICT ESCAPES. Several Make Run, to Gain Freedom, at Anamosa. Special to Times-Republican. Anamosa, March 28.—McAnna and Gordon, two young fellows sent up from Polk county to serve two years for forgery in the Anamosa peniten tiary, were foolhardy enough to make a dash for freedom. They were em ployed at the state quarries, which are located outside the prison walls, and no doubt had been planning the escape, as both started almost at the same time. As soon as they had left the "dead line" the gun guards got busy and Gordon threw up his hands and surrendered. McAnna was not so easily discouraged and kept on the run. At one time he was seen to fall to his knees, but at this time it is not known whether he was hit by a bullet from the guards' rifles or not. Warden Barr, who was notified of the escape hy phone, soon had a posse of officers on the trail of the fugitive, and he and Deputy Smith had the wires working in every direction, and it is only a question of a short time until he will be captured. There Is no enclosure around the quarry, not even a board fence, but the ones who escape have to run the gauntlet of a force of guards, who are armed with Winchesters, but as the country is rough and numerous groves near, the determined man was lucky enough to escape capture. Gordon will now have to pay the penalty of an addition of five years' imprisonment, which the law pre scribes for an escape or an attempt to escape, and the same punishment will be meted out to McAnna when he Is captured.

Aldrich Bill Passes Senate Two Killed and Several Injured in Clash With Police in New York ANARCHISTS LEAD THE MOB Marched With Banners and Red Hats and Sang the "Marseillaise"—Police Attempt to Disperse Crowd, and Some One Throws a Bomb Riot ing in Progress at Late Hour, s' New York, March 28.—It is reported that two men were killed in a battlo between the police and 10,000 men and women who congregated in Union square this afternoon to take part in a "demonstration of the unemployed" The men were killed by a bomb thrown into the crowd by one of the demon strators. Several persons were in jured. "3- A great crowd had gathered in the square, many persons carrying an archist banners and wearing red hats. When the police, 150 strong, most of them mounted, descended upon the crowd, the marchers, under the leader ship of several women, began to sing the "Marseillaise." The air was taken up by the crowd, and in a moment the volume of song drowned every other sound in the big square. The crowd appeared to be a good-natured one, however, and there was little resist ance offered by the police. The throng began to move away in different direc tions, to the sidewalks and side streets, and gradually the song died out. From time to time, jeering, singing crowds would defy the police, only to break away and run for safety when the of ficers turned upon them. Within a few minutes the square was practical ly cleared, and it was believed that the trouble was at an end. At 3:.16 the rioting was still in prog ress. Gradually the police lines were withdrawn and a small crowd began to gather In front of the park. Suddenly a man, followed by a big crowd, rushed into the square. The newcom ers headed directly for the crowd, and in front of the park a man in the lead hurled a a bomb into its midst. The gathering crowd fled in terror at the sound of the explosion, leasing several of their number lying on the sidewalk. Two of these were dead. Some of the others are seriously hurt.
