4 life I ••'•V- TWICE-A-WJCEK PLAIN DEALER TUESDAY, OCT. 8. 1912. BY MEAD PUBLISHING CO Official Paper ot City and County ,308.29 IS FLYNN DONATION RECORD OF 1912 EXPENDITURES IN ROOSEVELT CAMPAIGN TOLD TO COMMITTEE. PERKINS ALSO HEAVILY. Munaey Another Contributor—Flinn Replies to Charge That He Offered to Buy 8enate Seat. Washington, Oct. 2.—William Flinn of Pittsburg, Roosevelt leader and Progressive national committeeman in Pennsylvania, and Elon H. Hooker ot New York, treasurer of the Progres sive national committee, testified be fore the senate campaign expendi» tures committee. The witness gave some inside facts about the primary expenses of the Roosevelt campaign for the Republican nomination at Chi cago. Mr. Flynn appeared not only to tell of his contributions, but to answer the charges that Senator Penrose had made last August that Mr. Flinn offer ed $1,000,000 to him and Isreal W. Dur ham in 1904 for the Pennsylvania sen atorial appointment to succeed M. H. Quay and that in the same tight Mr. Flinn exchanged telegrams with John D. Archbold of the Standard OH com pany, asking bis support. The Pittsburg man declared that 11 Senator Penrose made the first state ment, "he lied." As to the other, he produced J. G. Splain of Pittsburg, who testified that he "thought" he had signed Mr. Flinn's name to the tele gram to Mr. Archbold June 7, 1904 and that he and not Mr. Flinn had handled the telegrams with Mr. Arch* bold and had attempted to Becure the Standard Oil influence in Mr. Flinn's support. Flinn Makes Admission. Prodded by Senator Pomerene of Ohio, who demanded a specific answer, Mr. Flinn admitted having written an agreement in January. 1906, in which Senator Quay, J. O. Brown and Mr. Flinn proposed to divide up the fed eral and local patronage of Pennsyl vania. He declared he had "gold bricked" Senator Quay, that he had never signed or intended to sign the agreement and that he had written It only to allay Senator Quay's oppo sition to the Republican candidate for mayor of Pittsburg. The investigation brought out the fact that Mr. Flinn has this year con tributed $144,308.29 to the Roosevelt primary, the Republican and Progres sive campaigns in Pennsylvania. Mr. Hooker, who preceded him on the witness stand, produced records to show that the Roosevelt national committee had spent $141,657.44 in the entire national primary campaign, over $52,000 of this sum going to Mas sachusetts for the bitter primary fight there. Spent $52,606.52 in New York. Mr. Hooker also produced the rec ords of the New York primary cam paign where the Roosevelt forces spent $52,606.52. The records showed that George W. Perkins had given $15,000 to the New -York and $22,500 to the national campaigns, and D. R. Hanna $25,000 to the national cam paign. Mr. Flinn apportioned but $99,384.18 as "Roosevelt expenditures" in his statement of the sums he has con tributed this year. Contributed 90 Per Cent of Total. Other items given tor the election of delegates brought the total of his Roosevelt contributions up to $102,• 000 and he admitted that he had con tributed 90 per cent of the money spent to carry the state for Roosevelt In the primaries. He added that he believed the end sought—a change of conditions in Pennsylvana— was "worth the price." The senate committee will hear Senator Joseph M. Dixon, manager of Colonel Roosevelt's campaign since its beginning last February. J. G. Gordon, president of the Fourth National bank of New York, who audited the books of Cornelius N. Bliss, Sr. George R. Sheldon, treasurer of the Republican national committee in 1908, and Congressman John R. Weeks of Massachusetts, who will be questioned regarding congre» sional funds, also are expected to tes tify at once. Seats in Great Demand. New York, Oct. 2.—At the rate ap plications of preferred patrons for seats at the world's baseball series were being received by Secretary Heydler of the National league it ap peared likely that the number of re served .seats to be put on public sale would be small unless hundreds of the applications were turned down. Out of the 8,500 seats available, applica tions for probably 2,000 had been re ceived by noon Tuesday. Near Riot at Dee Moines. Des Moines, Iowa, Oct. 2.—Demon strations against strikebreakers in rne instance resulting in serious in juries to a victim marked the second day of the teamsters' strike here. Po lice interference prevented what pro mised to become a riot when transfer companies attempted to man their wagons with non-union men ei.rly yes terday. Strike sympathizers held up S driver in a downtown alley f.sd after dragging him off his wagon handled him so roughly that he was sent to hospital. A lazy liver leads to chronic dyspesia and constipation—weakens the whole system. Dean's Reguleta (25 cents per box) corrapt tbe liver, fgng the ftorpacn, pure gMstipatiarh so Attorney General Would Have Office Of State Sheriff Created DISTRICT FARMS ALSO ADVOCATED The Recent Murder of the Moore Family at Villlsca Shows the Need of Change In the Handling of Crimes. Des Moines.—A law creating the office ot state sheriff, as well as es tablishing a central bureau of iden tification, which was recommended to the board of control by C. C. Mc Claughry, warden of the Anamosa re formatory, is needed in Iowa, accord ing to George Cosson, attorney-gener al. Two years ago Mr. Cosson and H. W. iByers, former attorney-general, In their hill presented to the legisla ture for the reorganization of the at torney-general's work, proposed that the office of state sheriff be created. The bill was defeated. "Warden McClaughry's suggestion Is a good one," Mr. Cosson said, com menting on the central bureau idea. "And in connection with it there should be a state sheriff. It is time that the state take some steps to pre vent crime." Mr. Cosson declared that If the finger print system of identification Is universally adopted It will lessen crime. "History shows us that the elec tric light in the city had a big part to play with the work of criminals. Shortly after they were installed in the big cities, the records show that the number of holdups, murders and robberies decreased. It stands to rea son that criminals will fear a certain identification method as much as they feared lights." And while the state is going about It to put up a bigger bar to criminals It might establish a state farm or district farms to send persons guilty of misdemeanors, the attorney-general thinks. He would have finger print! taken of every person sent to SUCH farms He said that there Is some objection to photographing personi guilty of minor offenses, but he can see no reason why it should not be done. With every city and county work. Ing in conjunction with a state office the attorney-general said that great results could be accomplished in re ducing crime. Iowa Railroads Are Busy. Contrary to the general supposition, railroads are not busy alone with the movement of crops. The grain move ment is enormous but it is not the only. item. The crop conditions have in turn stimulated and created a de mand for merchandise. The extraor dinary movement of freight has been a great thing for the country in more ways than one. It has been a parti cularly happy thing for the railroads. It is enabling them to recover losses of the last two years when the condi tions were against them and it is put. ting them back on their feet. If It' had not been for this stimulation some of the roads would have been forced into the hands of receivers. Not only is freight traffic heavy, but travel is heavy and it is increasing. The passenger business has picked up with the freight traffic and both departments of the railroads are ex periencing an unusual amount of busi ness. People travel in prosperous times. When it is dull they travel only when they have to. Travel has picked up wonderfully. And when railroads are doing business it is a sure indication that merchandise is moving and that money is circulating. Women Want New Laws. The executive board of the Iowa State Federated clubs is in favor of the mothers' pension law. The board advocates the following legislation in addition to mothers' pensions teachers' pension bill, centralization of rural schools laws for a better water supply and purifwhe waters ot the Iowa rivers and streams equal suffrage a law appointing a woman assistant state labor commissioner. The legislative committee will bring all these bills before the coming leg islature. The association has a scholarship and loan fund committee which re ported thirteen scholarships award ed and sixteen loans made to help worthy girls through school. No in terest is charged on these loans and the girls pay the money back in small Installments as soon as they obtain work. So far about $2,100 has been contributed by the clubs of this state to make up the loan fund. Articles of Incorporation. Dayton Lumber company, Dayton capital stock, $20,000. Charles City Engine company, Charles City capital stock, $150,000. The Wieling Opera House com pany, Toledo no capital stock. Colo Savings bank, Colo capital stock Increased from $25,000 to $35, 000. New Insurance Company Enters. The Granite State Fire Insurance company of New Hampshire was this week admitted to the Iowa field by C. S. Byrkit, head of the Iowa insur ance department.

Iowa people who have use for anU toxin in diphtheria cases should informed that by purchasing the packages for sale at state agencieE much money can be saved. Dr. Gull ford H. Sumner, secretary of tha state board of health, has already es tablished 250 stations in Iowa where anti-toxin can be bought at about one third the r:03t of the usual charge at drug stores. Dr. Sumner says that 5,000 units or one of the larger packages can be bought of any anti-toxin distributor fcr $2.25, and one of the smaller pack ages for €0 cents. The larger pack age is designed to cure cases of diph theria which have not passed'a de velopment of more than twenty-four hours and the smaller packages are to be given to children in the family who have not yet been affected as a preventive. The usual charge at drug stores for the larger package Is $7.50 and for the smaller package $2. Any person may buy the state anti-toxin at any of the state stations. Every physician has a list of the stations. Day of Low Taxes Is Past. "The day of low taxes is past," as serted Alfred C. Mueller, mayor of Davenport and president of the Iowa League ot Municipalities, tn an ad dress at the fifteenth annual conven tion of the League. He urged con certed action to procure laws that would permit the incurring of heavy obligations, if they are necessary to the proper upbuilding of the commun ities. "W? need more city conveniences today than we did ten years ago." he asserted. "Our cities are not merely commercial or industrial enterprises they are our koines nrirl- they must be made places ia which we can rear our families under cleanly and wholesome conditions. They must be healthy, both from the physical and the moral points of view. To brirg these about there must be more parks, sewers, police and fire protection." Iowa Road Law. Patents to lowans. The following patents have Just been issued to residents of Iowa: William L. Carter, assignor to Wat erloo Register company, Waterloo nursery-chair. Albert E. Beall, Clinton, assignor to R. N.

Appeal has been made to Governor Carroll to stop prize fighting in Du buque. Secretary Baxter of the Iowa Welfare league called at the govern or's office and produced copies ot the Dubuque newspapers showing extend ed reports of boxing matches and de manded that the state law against such exhibitions be brought into use. Secretary Paul Carroll said that the case will be investigated. It is re ported that a club at Dubuque has been providing sport for the members and friends under the "membership admission" plan and that its mem bership has grown to astonishing pro portions. No New Political Jobs. The employers' liability commis sion's proposed working men's com pensation act is not intended as means of supplying more political jobs for the faithful, according to the secretary. He said reports to the ef fect that the insurance end of the plan would be under state supervision and furnish political pie are wrong. The employers who subscribe to the association are the ones that will have the hiring to do, he said. The plan has been worked successfully In New England. Politics has not inter fered in any way with the manage ment. Named to Represent Iowa. Seven members of the medical staff of the Iowa National Guard have been chosen to represent Iowa at the Association of Military Surgeons' con vention to be held at Baltimore, Md.. Oct. 1 to 4.

IS KILLED BY AUTO WELL KNOWN AUTO RACER CA8TS TIRE WHILE GOING 90 MILE8 AN HOUR. MECHANICIAN WILL DIE, Machine Is Wrecked.—Report Thai Narrowness ff Course Caused the Tragedy Denied. Milwaukee, Oct. 2. David Bruce' Brown, wealthy young New York sportsman, was killed, and his mechan ician, Tony Scudalarl, was probably fatally Injured on the new Wauwatosa automobile road course on the eve ol the eighth running of the Vanderbllt cup race. Bruce-Brown was driving his high powered Fiat car at a 90-mile-an-hour speed when a rear left tire blew out. The heavy racing car swerved Into a ditch and a second later men and machine were catapulted diagonally across the road and into a field with terrific force. The men were thrown clear of the car, which was hurled high in the air and then smashed into a tangled heap of wreckage. Bruce-Brown's skull was fractured, his left leg broken and he suffered Internal Injuries. Surgeons said that death resulted directly from hemorr hage of the brain. The top of Scuda lari's skull was crushed, his right arm broken and his body seriously torn. Bruce-Brown died at Trinity hospi tal three hours after the accident, hav ing only partially regained conscious ness for a few minutes. Surgeons had trephined his skull on both sides in an unavailing effort to save the young race driver's life. Fellow Drivers Weep. Caleb Bragg, Bruce-Brown's close friend, Ralph De Palma, Teddy Tets laff and other well known drivers, stood weeping in the hospital corridor as Bruce-Brown was wheeled from the operating room to a private ward. The hospital authorities withheld news of Bruce-Brown's demise for an hour. Various explanations were giv en for this delay. Bruce-Brown, ac cording to his friend, Caleb Bragg, met his death in a heroic, but useless effort to keep his swerving car on the comparatively narrow roadway, af ter the explosion of the tire which caused the fatal accident. Course Is Held Narrow. Bragg declared that the course was dangerously narrow. He asserted that Bruce-Brown could have saved himself under similar conditions on a wider road. Bitter exceptions, however, were taken to this statement by officers of the Milwaukee Automobile Dealers' association under whose auspices the races here are to be held. Referee A. F. Pardlngton also de clared that the accident could not be blamed on the course. "The accident was unavoidable," said Mr. Pardlngton, "and the track was in no wise to blame. It Is In ex cellent condition. The casting of the tire would have upset any machine Wilson Stands For a Principle Will You Stand By Him? Woodrow Wilson is a vastly different order of man than you find among the ranks of many good men in practical political life. Woodrow Wilson is not among the great majority of politicians and business men, otherwise estimaNe characters, who believe that the end justifies the means, who are honest in a commercial or political sense. The candidate of the progressive voters of the country not only does not believe in the doctrine of "anything to win," but he insists on plain old fashioned honesty in every detail of his campaign. Woodrow Wilson proposes to win on the merits of his candidacy and platform or not at all. "Clean hands or no fight" is Wilson's ultimatum to his supporters throughout the country. No Tainted Money For Wilson Not a dollar of questionable money will be spent to elect Woodrow Wilson. The Democratic National Committee is heart and soul in accord with the candidate's views. And the corrupting influences, with no political faith, casting about to win a foothold in the new govern ment with bribes of ill-gotten gains, have despaired of reaching Wilson or his campaigners. They have gone to the enemy, whoever that enemy may be. It is a matter of common knowledge that the "Interests" are using all their political funds to defeat Wilson. This makes it your fight. •What the American People Need to Know The people have constantly made the mistake of believing that this is a money-ridden nation. Such is only the case insofar as the People fail to get together and so permit the few to control the dishonest representatives they, by mistake, elect to office. The actual money power of the People is still greater than that of the Interests. The Progressive People of the country, if they get together, can buy and sell the Corrupting Influences and destroy their financial power. So Woodrow Wilson and his managers believe that not only is it the only clean method but the most practical method for the Progressive People of the country to supply the Woodrow Wilson Campaign Fund. The People to Fight With THEIR Dollars This year a popular president is to be elected with the People's money. The Woodrow Wilson Campaign Fund is to be collected from the rank and file of the Progressive Voters of the country. ... The bills of the Democratic National Committee are to be paid, not with the thousands of the Interests, but with the individual dollars of the earnest, eager voters who desire clean, efficient government and who are willing tfe help Wilson as he wants to be helped. Money thus needed is not spent in improper ways or in any manner similar to the way in which the tunas ot tne Butwe have to tell the voters of the country about Woodrow Wilson. We have to tell them what he has done. We have to tell them what he stands for. We have to point out to them the important planks in his platform. All this means that to hold up our end we will be obliged to spend as much money as those who oppose us. This means that every man or woman who believes in Wilson should be willing to contribute to his cause. Let the supporters of Wilson help us to spread the Wilson gospel to the four winds. Let the Progressive Voters battle this year with their pocketbooks as well as their ballots. We Solicit Popular Subscriptions—Can You Give From $1 to $201 Of course, you can—and you are glad to support the cause in this way. A Practically every voter can afford to give 91 to aid the Wilson Campaign. A great many can give W. A great many can give 15. And there are lots and lots of progressive voters who will be eager to donate from flu to WU. And we will be proud to receive from thousands, who can only afford $1, their $1 contributions. We want to bear a oh a a a iv This year the man with the dollar must defeat the government traducer who spends nis thousands. Get Club Subscriptions If you know many Wilson men, if you work among many Wilson men, head a list with your name and money and get the others to join you with their subscriptions. Then send your list with the money to C. R. Crane, Vice Chairman, Finance Committee, Democratic National Committee, 900 Michigan Avenue, Chicago, Illinois. No loyal Wilson man can do more than this to assure Wilson's victory at the polls in November.

Was Well Known Racer. Although only 25 years old, Bruce Brown was one of the best known au tomobile race drivers in the country. He began racing in 1907, winning his novice race at the Empire City track. In 1908 he ran away from school and acted as mechanician for the late Emanuel Cedrino at Armond Beach, Fla. Here Bruce-Brown broke the one mile amateur straightaway record, held by William K. Vanderbllt, Jr., the youngster's time being 33 3-5 sec onds. THINKS GIBSON GUILTY.

National Banks Declared Able to Hai* die Crop Situation Alone. Washington, Oct. 2.—Uncle 8am opened his October accouut with a 190,013,494 working balance in the treasury a public debt c'ecreased by $211,590 during September and with customs receipts rapidly increasing as the main feature of the monthly figures. The final reports for September showed total receipts of $55,682,556, disbursements of $58,446,255, and a total balance in the general fund of $149,846,615. The total customs re ceipts were $27,475,127, an increase of $2,728,818 over September, 1911, but the internal revenue receipts, not in cluding the corporation tax, fell $1, 725,653 below the $26,147,673 of a year ago. The total disbursements over ran the receipts by nearly $5,000,000 against an excess of nearly $2,000,000 in receipts over expenditures in Sep tember of last year, a difference due in part at least to belated appropria tion legislation. Banks Need No Crop Money. National banks will not, for the pre sent at least, have any of the talked of $25,000,000 deposits of public funds to aid in the movement of the crops. Secretary MacVeagh and Assistant Se cretary Bailey decided that the banks are fully able to cope with the situa tion, without help from the treasury. There were 20 national banks au thorized to begin business during Sep tember with an authorized capital of $1,030,000 making a total of 7,422 national banks doing business today with an aggregate capital of $1,056,• 775.435. The United States Mints coined $270,000 in quarter dollars and $233, 800 in 1 cent pieces during September. HOME RULE FOR IRELAND Member of British Parliament Ad dresses Boston Irish-AnMricans.
