Roosevelt Geis Firsthand Views
of Situation From Those
"In the Know-
New Hampshire, Indiana and
Montana Represented by
Senators and Statesmen
\u25a0 ture attitude were left in the dark.
And as an indication that this was not
the case, there was ( the presence of
Senator Carter, who steadily . has op
- posed insurgency.
'• ; Senator Beveridge spent only a few
hours at Sagamore hill, and it \ras evi
dent, that the press of other visitors
\u25a0 and a dinner engagement in New York
• that necessitated an early -return gave
him less time than he wished in which
" to discuss the political situation in In
, diana.
• " "I have no doubt Mr. "Roosevelt will
give out anything he wishes, to become
. public about the interview," said Be\>
eridjre. . . . ;
"l«rgave my views on the Indiana sit
uation fully In a formal statement sev
eral days ago," he added.
"DJd you -come away pleased with
the results of your visit?"
The senator's smile broadened until
he laughed aloud.
"Well," he said, "I have had many
talks with Mr. Roosevelt in the last few
years, but never in my experience have
I had one more satisfactory than that
. of today."
Further than this Senator Beverldge
• srould Cot go. '
"I start on my vacation tomorrow,"
he added, "and it is needless to say
that I go in a very happy frame of
Senator Beverldge said he came to
. Oyster Bay by appointment and that
. his visit had nothing to do with the
other visitors here today.
"I found Colonel Roosevelt," he
added, "more alive and more interested
In things than ever."
Winston Churchill was as careful as
Senator Beveridge to keep back any
specific Information as to the conversa
tion between Colonel Roosevelt, the
Bass brothers and himself.
"Colonel Roosevelt has been inter
ested in the fight since it began in 190S,
when I ran for governor," he said.
"This year Robert R. Bass of Peters
boro is a candidate for governor. He
• may be classed with the insurgents,
.but the New Hampshire republican or
ganization has not opposed his nomina
\u25a0 tion. Mr. Roosevelt wanted to know
about the situation in New Hampshire,
. and as I am an old friend of his I
came down to tell him." '
"Did Mr. Roosevelt indicate his at
titude in regard to the fight in Xew
"Only by his friendly attitude. He
. said nothing to show his views."
Then Churchill produced a- paper on
which he had written a statement.
Here it is:
; "Our whole purpose in New Hamp
*ehire this summer is to make Mr. Bags
governor and to elect a legislature to
support him. We have done nothing
• else;, we have meddled with nothing
else. We. know Mr. Bass is uncompro
"imising. He has been with the pro
.-eressive movement sftice it started. He
is incapable of making political deals.
Senator Carter, on his return from
Sagamore hill, said that while his visit
was not a political one he had given
the colonel considerable information
• about the situation in the we6t. -
\u25a0•• "I assured him," said Senator Carter,
"that the alleged divisions in the west
.\u25a0 .were greatly exaggerated and that
liiany of us were trying to attain the
.*ame ends through different methods."
Senator Carter said he- had assured
Colonel Roosevelt that the strength of
the insurgent .movement in the north
west had been overestimated. The
senator askedjf there was any possi
bility of a breach' between President
Taft and Colonel Roosevelt and he re
plied: :s: s
. "1 can see no danger of It. Mr.
Roosevelt will probably have more of
a soothing influence than any other.
" "The people; of the state trust him
and his nomination andelectlon will be
. a clear cut victory, a signal stage* in
the fight we began four years ago."
Senator Carter looked gravely at the
interviewers and informed them the
-people In his part of the country wore
. not hearing much about the insurgent
movement just now. The senator came
alone and returned to Xew York alone.

Daughter of Minister, Returning
From Brink of Beyond, Tells
Tale of Her Despair
On a- cot in a crowded ward of • the
city and county hospital, cared for by
the hands of strangers and utterly de
pendent on public, charity, Mrs. Ella
Van Tries, daughter of a prominent
Methodist minister of Texas and \>nce
wife of a wealthy physician of Indiana,
is lying, in a critical condition as the
result of a. self-administered dose of
carbolic acid taken Wednesday night.
Since she was removed . there early
yesterday morning from the. central
emergency hospital hei one moan and
prayer, repeated feverishly ' to each
new person who approaches her bed, Is
always the same, a cry from the. heart:
"Don't let them know. I "don't want
my people to know."
Booked on the hospital records as
"Ella Wilson," the name she gave
when she was arrested Wednesday
nighj in. Pacific street on, a charge of
vagrancy, Mrs. Van Tries "has dojie her
best, even in the darkest hour of the
despair that drove her to attempt her
own life, to conceal her identity: " ' " .
'"I" have been driven to it all,"" she
explained.* her head framed in its
masses of luxuriant dark hair, turning
unceasingly on her low pillow, "oh!
all my life, I think," she exclaimed
wearily. "It has all been a series of
misfortunes since I was 17 and I am
38 now. But I don't , want my family
to know. They think I am well and
prosperous and fairly happy. What's
the use of tellin gthem anything else?
I would rather they'd, think it."
In the round gray. eyes and clear cut
features there are still traces of no
little former beauty, with lines on the
forehead that are the Imprint more of
worry than of years. Her hands are
white and well kept, but they bear no
wedding ring.
"Yes, even that is gone," she said. "I
lost that along with everything else. It
has Just all been poverty, and work of
late — and then this last position that
brought .me all my trouble. How did it
all happen? Oh! it's a long story," and
she sighed bitterly.
"Do I have to talk of it? Is it best?
— because my people mustn't know—
they mustn't. It. was only on their, ao
count that I took poison. I thought
maybe death would be better, than the
city prison. And then I'm going to be
married in 10 days — and I thought he—
well,, that- It wouldn't be ever the same
If he came back and found me in jail!"
"Yes, I have been married twice be
fore, and I have a son 22 who has
made.hta home with me since the death
of his father."
She hesitated a second, and then be
gan in a clear, steady voice to tell her
tale, the story of a woman who has
enjoyed many of the luxuries of life,
reigned for a brief interval as a queen
in her own happy home and then gone
down* down..; steadily down, until' she
reached an ebb low enough to sock eul
cide as the easiest and happiest way

"lamthe daughter of a Methodist
minister," she said, "and was brought
up a 1a 1 strict Christian. My father Is
Rev. Austin H. Reat and lives- .in -El
Campo, Tex. Dr. John Hannahan... a
friend of the family and the man who
showed me my "first A, B, C's and
taught me all I ever was taught, mar
ried me when I was barely 15." She
etoppc da moment, looking/away Into
space.' "When my baby was 2 years
old and he wa« the only .child I ever
had," she fent on, "his father took him
and ran away, leaving me to face the
world alone." , . . .
I wasn't quite 188— and he was tired!
Five years ago he dropped dead, and
then- my, son came back- to jne. , We
lived in Shelbyvllle, Ind., and I had
everything. I .'.wanted, but it didn't -last.
I can work, though, at almost any
thing, and, being a doctor's wife.' I
knew a number of things about nurs
ing. I havo done a great deal of nurs
ing, cast and in San Pedro, "and have
also worked In hospitals. Afterward,
when I had been divorced a long time
from Hiram's father. I married again,
her* in California, a man named Van
Tries. He was-lazy.and no good from
the start, and I. kept up^'my nursing.
When -I couldn't stand it any more, and
he was spending „ money; on another
woman, while I was : away . on cases,.. I
ordered hi mout of the house. It was
my.house," she ended in Justification;
and lapsed into silence. # f . ,
Shfi . turne,d her head "with 'aY half
moan. Oh, I'm o* tired of 'it all,'.' she
walled. • "What is the r use r 6f reniemij
bering it all?. He couldn't get a divorce
here— he hadn't any treason, 'but he
wen t to Fargo, N. D.; and r lived there a
few; days and divorced < me. ..Then'. I
lived in San : Pedro,' where I \u25a0 had my
own home ; and my own furniture. In
the- flre^that destroyed .27" houses,, my
house and clothes and everything* went.
Since then; my, son and I*have lived in
a rented house. In: Los; Angeles' and" he'
has- worked on » the': new/wharf,' but he
has been -looking for; a new. position
and so hasn't had any. spare; money:
That is really how I came to be where
I.was when I was arrested."
"I came here from Los Angeles to
meet the man I expect to marry when
the A. 'B. Johnson gets to port. ?.His
name is .Victor, Metsen. He is the first
mata, and I have, known; him for four
years. Coming up from Los Angeles on
the Governor^ shared my room with an
old .lady who was very* seasick the
whole way, so ; I .left her the whole
place as much'as possible and was up
on deck a lot. -I don't Iknow how.' it
happehed-^I really don't for I had it
well hidden— but the $10 I had to keep
me until I got money from my -son was
stolen, with a" waist and a- looking
glass. When I spoke of it, the last
morning they .told me it was too latJ
to do anything about it.
"So I didn't have a nickel when' I s.'°t
here and I didn't know the city. I Just
walked around looking-for some place
I could go for a little work until I got
somi money. _^
"I am a. stranger here, and I didn't
know- when .1 went to Frank Skiva's
place at 49S Pacific street that it was a
dance hall. The landlady let me have'a
room to myself for $2.50 a v week and : let
me sell beer on a commission of 'one
half of what I sold, and" she herself
sent for my trunk and paid for it.
Some nights I made 50 cents anJ-somo
nights $2, but I had'to eat and psy for
my bed and pay back my trunk and get
some money to get away.- and' I just
never made a cent ahead.' I wrote to
my. son and to the man. I'm going to
marry and tpld ; them where I was and
asked "them to send .'me "money. 1 My
mail to the general post office Js'.unMer
the name of Vay Tries, but' thera I
was- just ; 'Ella- Wilson"" from 'the start.
I /didn't, want my real ' name to ;l»e; l»e
known in that place." , '.','.
"I was getting very.blue arid dismal,
and so I- kept a two 1 ounce *bottle of
mixed wood alcohol, peroxide and car
bolic acid with me. I was warming a
little sick kitten when they: arrested
me. A' drunken sailor was going to
wring its neck.' The poor little thing
was onlymiauing, and I asked him to
give it to me. It seemed to be the only
thing that needed me or wanted -me in
the whole world, and I was holding it
against me to" warm it — and then I
was arrested. "When I knew what it
meant— jail and disgrace. and :my name
dragged through; everything— I just
felt the end had. come, and that I
couldn't stand^ anything- more. '. So 'I
put my head under'my cape a?id drank
the bottleful, and as I .was
it out of the patrol wagon trio: police
man caught me and hurried, me .off to
the emergency' hospital. They tell me
I'm going to live,'V she finished.
"Some money should be. here soon,"
she added, hopefully, "and maybe my
son.s The A. B. Johnson will also leave
Aberdeen soon, 'and 1 if I- get% married
my home will be in this city. But, any
way, now I've come back, if I do get
out< I'll do "something. .I'll work/ and

in New York Berger told me^ that the

fighter believed, that he [ was the fav

I got the match. I gave Johnson $2,500 i
