Assault of Visitor at Cudalrv
Home May End in Di
vorce Court
Father of Mrs. Cudahy Be
lieves Daughter "to Be ,
Quite Innocent '
KANSAS CITY. March 7. .lore F.
Lillis, president of the Western Ex
change bank, who was aVsaulted by
John P. Cudahy, tho millionaire packer,
when the latter found the banker in
his homo Sunday morning, will not
prosecuto his assailant.
Charges of disturbing the peace, pre
ferred against Cudahy by Hryan Un
derwood, a policeman who interrupted
tho punishment of tno nocturnal visi
tor, will probably bo. dismissed with a
nominal fine in police court when tho
case conies to trial March 15.
This will end the affair, in so far
as any punishment for Cudahy is con
cerned. Judge W. T. Johnson, legal represen
tative of Lillis, mado known tonight
that there would be no prosecution of
Cudahy. .
"We have no desiro to take any le
gal steps against Cudahy," he said.
"There will be no prosecution."
Lillis' condition is improving rapidly.
Nurses at St. Mary's hospital said to
night he could be removed to his home
tomorrow inorningi His wounds will
be slow in healing, it is believed, but,
will not prove serious.
Cudahy has taken the apartments at
the Coates housq, a downtown hotel.
Ho refused to say whether ho will re
turn to his home.
Efforts to locate John Moss, n chauf
feur, who is believed by Mrs. Cudahy to
have disclosed the presence of Lillis
at the house, have been unsuccessful.
Into the arms of her father, General
John C. Cowan, of Omaha, an attor
ney ot national roputation, Mrs. Cud
ahy rushed tonight. The general ar
rived" here on an evening trnin and
went to the Cudahy home, where his
daughter had been wniting for him
since Sunday morning, when she tel
ephoned him to come to her at once.
Briefly, Mrs. Cudahy told her story
to her lather. "She and Lillis had been
n an automobile ride, returned home
and were seated in the library resting
when Cudahy entered.
General Cowan was much affected by
his daughter's story.
"My daughter is innocent," ho Kaid
firmly. "I am as certain of that as I
am of the virtue of Jesus Christ."
"I regret exceedingly that Cudahy
was so cowardly as to say 'He has
ruined my home.' Ho did this for his
own protection. Why did he not think
of these dear children who must suffer
from this untitle statement?"
The general was unable to say wheth
er a divorce will result from the torublo
in the Cudahy household.
After a lengthy talk with her father
tonight, Mrs. Cudahy announced that
she would not institfilo divorce pro
ceedings against her husband.
"I will stay here and fane care of
the children," she said. "For their
sake, I will not bring suit -or divorce.
But never, never will I live again with
their father. The idea is absurd."

PROVIDENCE, March 7. Wearing
a broad wedding band of gold, and a
large diamond engagement ring spark
ling on her left nan, May Boler, aged
21, until recently employed' in a de
partment store, tonight coyly claimed
Philander Knox, Jr., tho 20'year-old
son of the secretary of state, as her
"We were married in Burlington,
Vt., by a minister," she confessed to
night. The first revelation of' tjio romance
was rather disconcerting to young
Knox. News of his efforts to obtain
a marriage license preceded his return
eajly today after a three days' ab
sence. Refusing to tell Principal
French of tho Morris Heights school,
where he was a pupil, whether he had
been married, he was at first confined
in a room and later expelled. At noon
he had luncheon in a hotel, but later
With James Gillen, a youthful friend
of Knox, the young -woman who says
she is Mrs. Knox, returned to Provi
dence today in company with. ;puiig
Knox. Gillen and the young girl went
immediately to the npnrtuientyof Miss
Holer's mother, where they remained
until discovered this afternoon.
When Miss Boler, or Miss Knox, fin
ally admitted she had married Knox,
she said she did not Itnow the name of
the clergyman who officiated, or even
the street on which the parsonage was
situated. She refused to recount the
details of the romance or weddingA
Knox did not appear at the house
of his bride. When the young woman
made her statement tonight, the only
person visible beside her mother was Gil
len, who had been learning the woolen
manufacturing business at Olneysville.
Ho refused to tell.
Tho federal express from Washington
tonight carried Principal French and
tho bridegroom. Mr. French, who had
had a long distance telephone talk with
Secretary Knox, thought the young
man had gone to Washington on an car
rier train and was indignant when he
heard the "woman in the case" was
aboard. He said he would have the
police at Westerly, the next stop, put
her off. At Westerly, CliicfCornelius
Hrausfield wanted to know tho trouble,
but was met by a smiling conductor,
who told the ollicer young Knox had
boarded the train in Boston and had as
sured him that the secretary of state
had expressed approval of the mar'
riage. The young people were speeding to
Washington to receive parental bless
ings, the said, so the chief swung
off the train expressing the liopo that
the couple would "Live happily ever

Funeral of One-time Polit

NEW YORK, March 7. After a aim
pie service and prayer at tho home of
his son, Frank Piatt, at noon tomor
row, tho body of Thomas Collier Piatt,
one-time political leader of .New York
and three times United States senator,
who died yesterday, will be borne to
Owego on a special car leaving at 1 p.
Another special will go from Wash
ington and still another from Albany.
It is probable that an extra car will
be attached to the special leaving New
York to accommodate friends.
At Owego, service will be held in tho
Presbyterian church Wednesday morn
ing. Today messages of condolence poured
into the residence of Frank Piatt,
where tho body lies, and tonight tho
old senator's comrades in the "Amen
Corner" adopted resolutions of sor
row. Although Piatt was a republican, the
"Amen Corner" resolutions were of
fered by Thomas Smith, secretary of.
Tammany Hall. They recited in part:
"Thomas Collier Piatt, during whoso,
leadership of the republican party ot
the state the 'Amen Comer' had its
beginning, died Sunday. In his days of

by his tolerant and sympathetic dispo

and mutual affection, uninfluenced by
their divergent and frcnucntly antag

by a fire that soon enveloped a large
three-story warehouse.
At midnight the fire was so intense
that it was impossible to enter the
place to determine the number of dead.
It is known that twenty-nine work

Eminent Banker Tells How
Large a Trust Can Be
Safelv Built
Wanted to Buy Northern
Pacific, Rock Island and
Santa Pe Roads
NEW YORK, March 7. Otto 11.
Kuhn, of tho firm of Kuhn, Loeb & Co.,
baukers for the late E. II. Harriman,
defined today on the witness stand the
limits nature has set upon centralized
"When an aggregation of roads be
comes so great," said Kuhn, "that the
management of them exceeds the abil
ity of one man, even if that man is a
genius, such acombination is no longer
of any economic value." ' .
Kuhn was testifying in the govern
ment's suit to dissolve tho Union Pacific-Southern
Pacific merger. Harri
man, he said, had not bought the
Southern Pacific to extend his influ
ence, but rather to conservo what pow
ers he had and safeguard his strategic
position. The Union Pacific then
reached the Pacific coast over the
tracks of the Southern Pacific, and
there had been rumors after the death
of Collis P. Huntington that interests
hostile to the Harriman roads were ne
gotiating for the purchase of the South
ern Pacific.
Among these interests werp under
stood to bo the Goulds. What the Har
riman lines Wanted was not" the Sunset
.route, but a gateway to San Francisco
and to the Unent.
"You consider, then." asked counsel
for the government, ' ' that if you could
have gotten rid of the Sunset route,
which was a competing line of the
Union Pacific, it would have been of
distinct advantage to you?"
"Not on account of the competitive
feature," answered Kuhn. "If wo had
sought to obtain a monopoly, the easi
est way would have been to buy tho
Santa Fc and Rock Island, and after
that tho Northern Pacific."
Harriman, Kuhn went on, had come
to his bankers with such a proposal.
They believed in Harriman's genius
and Harriman believed in himself, but
Kuhn, .Loeb & Co. advised against
such a proposition, and Harriman bark
ened. It was too big an undertaking,
they thought, for one man to swing. Af
ter Harriman's death, Union Pacific
bought an additional 74,000 shares of
Southern Pacific stock to safeguard it
self against Taft's proposed legislation
to make it illegal for a road owning
less than one-half the stock of a com
peting road to acquire additional
stock, but permitting a road having oO
