BUSY TINE FOI
COLONEL IN
R
ha Speech at Pittsburg
He Discusses the
Courts
TELLS WHY HE WANTS
RECALL OF DECISIONS
Roosevelt Spent Sunday
Resting, as the Guest of
W. A. White at Emporia
—Attends Services at the
Dutch Reformed Church.
Pittsburg. Kan., Sept. 23.—A large
crowd gathered at Pacific Square to
bear Colonel Roosevelt today. A woman
in the crush fainted and Roosevelt sent
bis physician to care tor her. "Don't
you want an umbrella. Colonel?" a wo
man called out. "No," said the colonel,
"you'll have to use a club to kill me."
In bis speech Roosevelt defended the
rccnll of Judicial decisions. "If you de
cide with us on tile principles for which
we stand, so far as 1 am concerned I
shall not rest content under any judi
cial rulings which nullify these deci
sions. In New York we have nominated
for the court of appeals two Jurists
who believe the people have a right to
pass such 1-iws as these and who fur
ther believe that the courts rule against
them appeals should he due the people,
after a reasonable time.
"Our opponents criticise what I say
about the courts. The New York court
of appeals says we cannot have a work
ingmen's compensation act. Our op
ponents say they approve the law but
we cannot have It because the courts
won't let us. \Ye say before the court
makes such a decision the people who
made the onstltution should have a
chance to say what they meant when
they made it.
Spends Quiet Sunday.
Emporia, Sept. 23.—William Allen
White, assisted by Old Tom, took charge
of Colonel Roosevelt yesterday and gave
him the most peaceful Sunday he had
had since the campaign opened. Mr.
White, who Is a Progressive national
committeeman, was Colonel Roosevelt's
host. Old Tom is Mr. White's black
horse, which has been In the family so
Jong that either his exact age has been
forgotten or else It is no longer men
tioned. Old Tom jogged soberly to
church with Colonel Roosevelt this
morning, ami in the afternoon ambled
through the quiet shaded streets of Em
portai while the colonel took the air.
Colonel Roosevelt and Mr. White sat
on the front seat of the family carryall
and shared the responsibilities of pilot
ing Old Tom, while the rest of tho party
rode behind. Colonel Roosevelt said,
as they moved along, that he always
did like horses better than automobiles.
Mr. White had Issued a public appeal
to the people of Emporia in the Interests
of Colonel Roosevelt, asking them to
"give the man the one thing In the world
he needs—complete rest. I. et Emporia,
Kan , show him that lf*he wants to sit
on the front porch and read the papers
he can do it, and attract no more at
tention than any other man doing the
same thing."
Some of the people had planned dif
ferently. They had arranged to give
Colonel Roosevelt a Kansas welcome,
\heginning with a hand concert at 2 a.
m., when he arrived here from Topeka.
Theso plans were canceled when the
colonel's wishes became known. Ills
sleep was not interrupted by the band
when the train drew in. and when the
congregation gathered at the Dutch Re
formed church this morning no one
knew the colonel would be there until
he entered.
The only departure from the rules
laid down came when Colonel Roosevelt
left town. A crowd gathered at the sta
tion to see him off and raised a rheor
at the approach of old Tom on his last
trip with the colonel.

FIFTY NIIUOHS

TO TEST ACTION OF
Independent Group of Banks
Seems to Have Cut
Ground From Under Feet
of Six Powers.
London, Sept. 23.—A Chinese loan of
$50,000,000 will be offered for London
subscription Thursday, according to
Charles Birch Crisp, head of the Anglo
Russlan bank, which has been promi
nent in the negotiations. Though the
capitalists hesitated to believe that an
Independent group of banks had been
able to cut the ground from under the
feet of the six-power combination, the
latest advices from Peking appear con
vincing.
The British government has retreated
from the position supporting the Hong
Kong and Shanghai bank, as a result of
newspaper attacks, which accused It of
backing a monopoly. The issue of the
Independent loan will bo due largely to
the efforts of Dr. George Morrison, po
litical advisor to the president of the
Chinese republic, who spent a month In
London conferring with financiers and
politicians.

BULGARIA IS IN
LIGHTING HOOD;
ALTER THE TURKS
War Party Is in the Ascend
ency and Active Measures
Are Already Being Taken
by Army.
St. Petersburg, Sept. 23.—An Investi
gation of conditions In Bulgaria dis
closes a unanimity of sentiment that
that country is on the eve of a war with
Turkey. Unless the conferences which
the Russian foreign minister, M. Sazon
off, will have In London with British
statesmen are fruitful for Macedonia
the war party Is likely to gain the upper
hand.
The army already la taking active
measures. Railroad tracks are guarded
throughout their whole extent, detach
ments are stationed at the bridges and
whole requisition commissions are can
vassing the frontier towns. Prepara
tions have been made to acquire ample
provisions.
Maneuvers at Shumla will be carried
out by 60,000 troops, but It has been
decided to dispatch no further troops
to that district. It Is doubtful If the
reserves will be disbanded. The serious
situation Is reflected In business and
foreign branch banks have suspended
credit.
The pacific policy of King Ferdinand
Is now challenged by a systematic prop
aganda for war.
The Insurrection of the wild Alhnnlan
tribes has opened the eyes of Greece
and Servia and for tho first time Bul
garia faces the Turkish problem In ac
cord with these two countries. There
Is an earnest conviction that the Inter
national situation offers the Bulgarians
the best, cliam-es of success, because It
Is thought 'g -tria will decline to move,
owing to inii-rnatlonal relations of the
triple alliance
Although Russia declares she Is not
preparing for war, It is believed In the
Ralkan states that she. with Groat
Britain and France, Is now In a position
to defend the Balkan Plays
The failure of King Ferdinand and his
ministers to Induce the powers to insist
pon the adpotlon of autonomy In
Macedonia and an appeal to arms prob

NOW THE NEW SEASON
BRINGS A HUNDRED
NEW DESIRES
By J. R. HAMILTON.
Former Advertising Manager of Wanamaker's, Philadelphia.
œ HE Summer is over and Autumn has come to every City in the land. Even
those cities that lay for a week in sweltering heat have found cool
breezes at last.
You arc going to liavo to spend a great deal of money now. From your hats
to your shoes you will have to replenish again. Home of you will come out of
this shopping tornado looking as spick and span and as new as if you had been
bom again. Others will look as dowdy as if they had never bought new
things, but bad straggled along on last year's worn out clothes.
It all depends on how and where you spend your money during the next few
weeks. j
There are shoes to be bought, but there are all kinds of shoes being sold—
and all kinds of people being sold, when shoes are sold. There are suits and
dresses to be had. There are evening gowns, and hats, and everything to make
a woman beautiful—or unbeautiful—depending entirely upon where and how
she makes her choice. :
There are many homes to be refurnished, too, and these also will look happy
or unhappy accordingly as you choose. A piano can he a public nuisance or n
joy for life. Your furniture can he a comforting friend, or a broken beggar
always in your way. - ;
The only difference is in learning how to buy. And the quickest way for a
person to learn how to buy is simply to study the advertising day by day. You
will find as you read this advertising that you will very quickly be able to read
the man behind the advertising. A man cannot publish a part of himself every
day and not he found out if he is not right.
That is why the man who does not advertise is a dangerous fellow to deal
with. He has made no promises and no pledges. He does not stand for any
thing. He may be right hut he has not gone on record to that effect.
The advertising in this paper day by day will give you the news of what to
buy and where to go. It will help you with your styles and your pocketbook.
And above all, it will give you every merchant's guarantee oi good faith in all
of his dealings with you. [
That is the greatest thing about advertising. It always raises the business
morals of men. So use this paper absolutely today for your shopping guide, as
well as for the other features it contains.

years ago, after Governor Wilson's
election, hut before he assumed office.

for the United States senate. Governor

contest was victorious, winning his
contention thnt James E. Martine, the

HAY BE PROBE
INTO BOISE
TRUSTS
County Grand Jury May
Be Asked to
i
CLAIMED THAT CITY
IS NOW TRUST-RIDDEN
Anti-Trust Law Enacted by
the Last Legislature One
of the Most Drastic in the
Country—Attorney Gen
eral Given Power.
PROVISIONS OF ANTI
TRUST LAW OF IDAHO
"That every contract, combin
ation In the form of trust or
otherwise, or conspiracy In the
restraint of trade or commerce,
within this state, is hereby de
clared to be illegal.
"Every person who shall make
such contract or who shall en
gage in any such combination or
conspiracy, shall be deemed
guilty of a misdemeanor, and
on conviction thereof, shall be
punished by a fine not exceed
ing $5000 or by imprisonment
not exceeding one year or by
both said punishments, at the
discretion of tho court.
"That all of the books of rec
ord and papers of every corpor
ation, Joint stock company, or
other association, engaged In
business within this state, shall
be subject to the inspection by
the attorney general of this
state, or by any agent he may
designate for that purpose, and
such corporation. Joint stock
company, or other association
shall, at any time he shall pro
scribe, make such returns duly
verified by an officer of such
corporation, Joint stock com
pany or other association, ns
shall be by him prescribed
either by general regulations
or by special direction."
The greatest trust busting grand
Jury in the history of this state is
now In session, if the suggestions
that are soon to tie made by outsiders
are adopted by that body.
Idaho has the strongest anti-trust
law of any state in the Union, it is
claimed, and few cases have ever been
brought against combinations of any
sort existing inside of the state lines.
Wholesale charges that there are
trusts of every kind doing business
Inside of the state in defiance of the
state law, that the butchers have
formed a meat trust, the coal dealers
a coal trust, that the grocers have
formed a grocery trust, and that many
lines of business have, contrary to the
express prohibition of the statutes,
formed combinations for mutual bene
fit are made by some of these out
siders.
Facts Before Grand Jury.
Under the present plan, they will
demand that Raymond L. Givens,
county attorney, present facts to the
grand Jury of this state now In session
here and provide for the most rigid
inspection of everything in Idaho that
smells like a trust or a combination of
any sort.
They propose to ask the grand Jury
to find out Just where these combin
at ions are, what they Include, tho
names of the men and the companies
that belong to them, how they regu
late prices if they do regulate them,
how they drive out competing con
cerns from the business field, if they
do, and any and all other facts that
can he obtained by the exercise of tho
power of a grand Jury under the state
law.
No half way probe into these facts
will satisfy the enemies of the
"trusts." They want the grand Jury
to run the instrument all of the way
up into the wound and find out Jus»
where tlie trouble is and who Is tho
cause of it. They want a thorough
knowledge of the fac ts and they want
those facts presented in such a way
that the courts may take cognizance
of them and that some definite trust
busting steps shall be taken.
From the way the advocates of the
probe talk, one would think Boise is
the ortpir.nl home of the trusts. They
mention what they believe to ho com
binations of the butchers in a meat
trust, the coal men into a coal trust,
the milk men and dairies Into a milk
trust, the creameries into a butter
trust, the grocery men into a grocery
trust, tjio bakers Into a bakery trust,
and, in short, combinat ion« of every
kind in the necessities of life.
Combinations to the right of them,
combinations to the left of them, com
binations in front of them, volley and
thunder in the minds of the trust«
