PFXIAL PIsrATCH TO THE CALL
SHINGTON. Nov.- 29.— 1n the
.long list of recent attacks on the ad
ministration none is likely to attract
so much attention as the letter made
public tonight by Senator Foraker of
\ Ohio, in which he voluntarily retires
- £E a candidate for United States sena
tor from Ohio, declares 'himself a can
didate for the nomination for presi
dent and places on the shoulders of
the administration a share of the l
responsibility for the recent financial
disturbance. This action of Senator
i Foraker marks a distinct phase cf the
| preat contest 'by President Roosevelt
and hi* friends to nominate Secretary.
..Taft. or some other .friend whom the
president will select. " It raises the Issue
fairly between Roosevelt and Taft on
one side and Senator Foraker and those |
• \vho do not believe in a continuance:
:.,'.of the domination of the president on
.the other.
• DELEGATES HV DIRECT PRIMARY
Foraker announce* that lie will ask
. -.the republican state committee ofOhlo
. to provide for the election of delegates
JoThe next national convention at a di-
Foratec.r> announcement conies In the
form of -a' letter to Conrad J. Mattern\
•Victf president or the advisory
*nd rxecutive committee of the
; Icaffuc • of republican club* of
Ohio. _ THis committee, with SS out of
. 105 members present, voted unanimous
. ly to support Foraker both for senator
: .and for president and denounced the
attempt of the federal administration
: to "eliminate" him from Ohio politics. j
Senator Foraker discusses the tnree j
points of difference between himself j
«r.a the president. He says he believes
. : -.tV,e country is with him in the Browns
• ville ript matter and the opposition to
Joint statehood, which are two of the
. points. 'Then he discusses railroad rate
• legislation, the third point of difference;
itATE BILL AXD DEP.ItESSIOV
The senator says one of his predlc
. . tlor.s was' that the passage of the rate
bill would weaken the confidence of
Investors in railroad securities and per
haps cause serious business disaster.
This, he holds, has come to pass. and
• the authors ; of that legislation cannot
.escape their share of responsibility for
contributing to the present business
" depression.
Foraker flatly declared against any
" 'present or prospective tariff changr.s
• no" makes a strong: point in alluding
to the tendency to amend the constitu
tion by judicial decision to suit new
condition?, -which Js regarded as a
•criticism of President Roosevelfs
*peecU in St. Louis 5n October.
Referring to the attitude of the Ohio
republican league, Foraker says:
"1 want to say that far beyond any
•thiTisr personal to myself I am grrati
. fied by the action taken, because it Is a
. Rat rebuke to the suggestion that the
. office of United States senator is to be
stripped of all the honor attached to It
"by making its Incumbent a mere agent
\u25a0 to register the decrees of somebody
e^e."
This "somebody else" means the
president. f

KLEINSCHMIDT'S
LIBERTY RESTS
WITH THE COURT
Habeas Corpus Applicatidn

UNDER ADVISEMENT

Pleasing to Attorneys .
for Accused ..
PRISONER IS NERVOUS
Handcuffed to Deputy, He
' Is Taken From Jail
to Courtroom
. Harry Kleinschmidt's fight for life
and liberty has begun. Before Judge
Harris of the/superior court in Ala
meda county. Lin S. Church and Brew
ton Hayne, counsel for the' 'prisoner,
began yesterday afternoon the strugr
gle which will • end only \u25a0 with the
vindication or death of their young
client, charged with the - : murder of
Frank B ellows. - They asked for a
writ of heabeas corpus' on the ground
that nothing had come to light which
would connect their client with the
death of Bellows. After listening to
the evidence 'produced, Judge' Harris
said that he would take " the subject
under advisement and render his de-.
cision next Tuesday, morning.
His original .attitude of careless
abandon, resumed for the time being,
Harry Kleinschmidt listened .to the
proceedings 'in the courtroom, laugh
ing and chatting with his: attorneys
and the officers of the court, even smok
ing a cigarette giv»n him by; a news
paperman. There was but little of the
nervousness and weakness of which
Uis"' jailers have -talked.; so :>much ap
parent In' tbVvman's actions! or*, looks.'
No one would have picked, him asi the
prisoner at the bar, fighting for his
.libertyl.if it had not been for -the pres
ence of Deputy-Sheriff Liesc, who .was
sitting beside him, 'and the glint of the
steel' handcuffs which bound the pair
together as they left" the courtroom.
1 NERVOUSNESS SUPPRESSED
It was only in the twitching of his
large, strong hands, free while the
hearing lasted, that the prisoner gave
any signs of the nervous strain under
which he has been laboring since his
arrest. In the ; frequent consultations
he had with Jiis attorneys during the
•course of the hearing these hands were
! never, still. He talked with them as
much as with his -voice. They are ex
ipressive hands, kept, mus
cular, capable of dealing a ; tremendous
blow or.holding-a struggling man to
the bitter end. They are the r short
hands one would- expect to see accom
panylhgthe heavy jaw, small nose and
slanting forehead of ; the prisoner.;-
Notwithstanding his careless attitude
in the, courtroom, Kleinschmidt made
almost frantic efforts to protect him
self from the newspaper camera men.
As his right .wrist was chained to the
left "wrist "of the. deputy sheriff Awhile!
passing between the jail and court, his
attempts must have cost him much in
convenience, if not actual pain, for he
persistsd in twisting, around * in- order
to have the officer between himself and
his tormentors. . <;>; >
The action of Judge Harris in rsfus
j ing- -to consider the case at once
brought forth the first approach to a
statement which .the lawyers .for
Kleinschmidt have made. Brewton
Hayne said in this regard:
"While I have no desire to appear to
be finding fault with the court, V I must
say.that under' the rules I fail to un
derstand where Judge Harris got "his
law.' ..There ; is 'nothing -] in > the com
plaints that have been Hied to connect
our client with the death of. Frank
Bellows— absolutely^ nothing— yet the
court^has set aside our arguments and
refused even to permit jthe prisoner ;td
be admitted to bail. He ; may .have- his
reasons, but I for jonr. .can't them."
VICTORY FOR BRoiv.V
Dlstrict Attorney, Brown won^ an I
undoubted. victory in. the, : refusal of the
judge to hand . down ? adecision on the
case yesterday afternoon. Heipracti-
CRlly admitted that, the case .pi the
prosecution is not as. y»t complete, Jbiit
he-added-that continuance of the .legal
holidays forbade any. formal action in
law; either • by . out -- a wa rrant
against; the prisoner or:by filing a for
mal complaint against him.". ' - .' - ; .
In./lieu of " either of the forms \u25a0of
procedure the district attorney sub
mitted, .three sworn to: by
himself. Deputy District- Attorney Phil
ip M. Carey and" Marshal; Vollmer, chief
of^poHce of, Berkeley. \x\ all _'of. these

WASHINGTON, Nov. 29.
Senator Aldrich, chairman of
the- finance comraitte, wilJ

and will immediately go into
conference with ' republican
