SLEEPER SERVIGE

Brownsville Road Will Cooperate
With Sap ‘n Putting Through the
New Service.
I The proposed through sleeper ser
vice between San Antonio and
Brownsville is assured. The St. L. B.
& M. road will cooperate with the J
flan Antonio and Aran-as Pass road
in establishing the new service.
Col. Uriah Ix>tt, wliile in Harlin
gen yesterday, saw Wm. Doherty, as
sistant manager of the (lulf Coast
Lines, and •was informed by the lat
ter that the Brownsville Road will
cooperate with the Sap In the mat
ter of handling a 'through sleeper
daily from San Antonio to Browns
ville and return. The new service
will start Sunday, and doubtless will
prove a great convenience to travel
ers between his city and San An
tonio.
Thus is put to rest any doubt that
the Brownsville Road would enter
the new arrangement as proposed by
the Sap road.
The schedule will be:
Leave San Antonio at 9:25 p. m.,
arriving at Corpus Christi at 4:50 a
m. Leave Corpus Christi at 5 a. m.,
arriving at Brownsville at 11 :40 a. m
From Brownsville to San Antonio

JUDGE NOAH ALIEN
TAKES THE SMP

TO MAKE FOUR WEEKS' CAM
PAIGN FOR ROOSEVELT
Loca. Bull Moose Leader Will Tell
Country of Roosevelt’s Record in
Discharging Negro Soldiers—Crit-;
ici*es Taft's Weak Mexican Policv.
Judge Noah Allen, generally
known as an active Bull Mooser,
leaves tomorrow to take the stump in 1
some of the Northern .-tates for the
progressive party, lie has completed
arrangements wl’h the national com
mittee of the progressive party to
make a four weeks campaign, and a
few days ago received a telegram
from the headquarter- of the party,
telling him tha’ Iip is expected to
leave here today.
Judge Allen yesterday received a
letter from Chicago, asking him to
report there. From that city he will
go to Nor h Dakota to begin his
work. Henry F. Oochems, of the na- |
tional committee, made arrange
ments with Mr. Allen upon the
recommendation of Co. Cecil Lyon. 1
who is at the head of the progressive ,
party in Texas.
Mr. Allen ha- been prominent in
republican politics in Texas during
the past ten or twelve years, and has
be^n active in every campaign dor- j
ing that time. The progressive
party has chosen him doubtlea* be
cause of his familiarity with he
border country, and because he is
well acquainted with the facts in re
gard to the Fort Brown affair, whi'h
has become an important factor in
he Roosevelt campaign.
Tn speaking of his trin to a Herald
man yesterday, Judge Allen said:
“The only vacations I take arc
during campaign times, when 1
usually give from two to four weeks
to campaign work. For the past ten
years 1 have gone on the s ump for
the republican party in Texas every
two year*.
“This year I have promised the na
tional committee of the progressive
nartv to gire four weeks in the
Northern and Eastern states in the
'■ampaign for Roosevelt and John- ,
son. 1 am in receipt of a telegram
1 hat T am expected to leave here for
r’hieago tomorrow to -tart on the
work. Just where 1 will be sent 1
ira not advised and will not know
until I reach Chicago.
“I firmly belive that the time has
come when the people who believe
in the progressive ideas of govern
ment must break loose from both of
the old paries The membership of
one is as badly divided in opinion as ;
the other, and thpre can be no real
relief from a party that is divided
within itself.
“The progressive party represents
a united front. It travels with its
face ‘O the enemy of the people. Its
candidates were the choice of the
majority. It speak- in no uncertain
tones as to the principles it advo
cates.
“The republican narty candid ite ,
for nresider* is trying to ride into 1
the White House again on a stolen
nomination, knowing it to he stolen j
from the people. He is a minority
candidate.
The democratic party has a minor
ity candidate also, whose nomination
was forced by the sandbagging
methods of Col. Bryan. Governor
Wilson had less than a third of the
duly elected delegate- in the conven
tion, while Champ Clark had a clear
majority on *en straight ballots. It
was strictly a minority rule conven
tion. Both the republicans and ;
democrats have a minority candidate (
vet they prate about majority rule.
“In my campaign I shall endeavor j
to make hose points clear to the f
voters. Being from Brownsville 1
shall also, when the occasion re
quires, defend the action of Colonel
Roosevelt in discharging the negro;
soldiers who shot up the town.
“T will also denounce the weak
a»d vacillating policy of President i
Tafr in dealing with the Mexican
situation, and his failure to display
any interest in American citizens fn
Mexico, or lack of nerve to do any
thing if he did display interest.
“Being able to sneak from per
sonal knowledge of the facts < nn
cerninc ‘he stealing of our delega
tion at large to Chicago, I will rive
some attention to that subject. The
receiver of a stolen nomination is no
better than the men who perpetrated
the theft and is unfit to be president
of a great people.
"1 shall endeavor to maintain a
good record for Texas, and hope to
return with good renor s, and wit
ness a sweeping victory for Roo e
velt and Johnson."

DISMISSED INSPECTOR REITER
ATES FORMER STATEMENTS
Say* Inspector Waldo Told Him Not
to Raid Disorderly Places So Long
as Outward Decency Was Observed
by Owner*.
Associated Press.
Xew York. Sept. 6.— Whether
Police ('omiNtfsionor Waldo gave
general in-tractions to suppress dis
orderly house-, and private verbal
orders to allow them to run as long
as the conditions of “outward de
cency" were observed, became the
question at issue today, when C. G.
Hays, the suspended police inspector, j
was placed on trial before the deputy
police eomimssioner on a charge of
making a false statement in regard
to liis police duties. i
Hayes emphatically denied that he
made a false statement when he told ]
Waldo he had been ordered hv him i
(Waldo) not to make raids on dis-|
orderly houses except on the comm is-1
-ioner's instructions. Hayes said
that under th.ese instructions he had
made no raids since last February, j
but previously had made many.
Waldo was on the stand before
Hayes and he wa- grilled by the
defendant’s attorney in an effort to
show that “outward decency" was]
the criterion by which Mayor Gay- ,
nor wished the question of vice sup- |
pression to he determined.
The trial developed into a probe j
of the police department and an ar- 1
raignment of the policy of Mayor
Ga.vnor. Waldo denied every ma
terial statement made by Hayes. The
trial will continue tomorrow.

Washington. D. C., Sept. 6.—To
day’s report to the state department
from agent.- in Mexico tell of im
improved conditions in that country.
These reports come on the heel - j
of instructions to Ambassador Wil
son to urge the Mexican government
to provide protection for foreign in
terests.
Today’s reports appear to remove
apprehension as to the situation at
Najcozari, which is regarded as a
danger point so far as foreigners are
concerned. Conditions In Monterrey :
are also reported as satisfactory.
Discouraging news, however,
comes from southern Mexico where
roving hands of rebels are becoming
too bold in their operations. The \
