New Jersey Legislator Would Forbid Dummy Incorporation of Monopolies. TRENTON, N. J., Feb. 10—Senator James F. Minturn, the democratic leader in the New Jersey senate, will introduce in the legislature two im portant bills aimed at "frenzied finance."' One of them makes the incorporation of any company by .means of dummy directors a misdemeanor and provides penalties for enforcement against those so incorporating and the other provides for the forfeiture of the charter of any corporation which has entered into any argument; verbal or written, in restraint of trade,/ or to effect a monopoly in any line of com modities or shares of stock with intent to defraud in New Jersey or any other state, to overcapitalize, to violate the provision of the, federal act, "to regu late commerce" and its amendment or the federal anti-trust law. The act provides that upon com plaint against any corporation accused of any of the prohibited acts, the at torney general shall investigate and upon a prima facie case shown, shall bring suit in the court of chancery for the forfeiture of the charter. Senator Minturn says: "My meas ures are directed against the beef, and shipbuilding trusts and others of that class which plunder people of the world under the protection of New Jersey's corporation laws. New Jersey should afford every facility to tine honest incorporation to organize under the laws of the state, but the plund erers and conspirators should be diiven out."'

SEWTOR FOSTER IS ANGRY SAYS HE HAS SOME RIGHTS AND HE MUST BE RESPECTED Does Not Propose to Be Ignored in the Distribution of Patronage in Washington. The following story printed in the Seattle Press-Times, will prove "mighty interesting*,' reading to the, politicians in Walla Walla and to those who watch the trend of political affairs in the state and nation: "I have some rights as United States senator," Senator Addison G. Foster of Tacoma is reported in a special dis patch to The Times from Washington. D. C., to have said to a congressman from this state, "and I propose to do my best to secure the confirmation of George M. Stewart as postmaster at Seattle. "I will be here during the remainder of my term," the senator continued, "whether it is thirty days or thirty hours, and, by G —, I will assert my rights." This heated outburst on the part of the rotund mill owner, whose cnlef characteristic in the past was his mer ry "ha-ha.'" is directed against Sena tor Ankeny, who has all aiong op posed the nomination of Mr. Stewart as postmaster, because he has already promised the place to another man. \Vhen Senator Foster bursts forth into swear words it may be taken for granted that he is somewhat agitated, and' if the breach continues to widen at this rate it will be "coffee and pis tols for two" between the senators from this state before long. Conversion of Foster. Mr. Stewart was named postmaster of Seattle by John L. Wilson. The fact that Senator Foster has now en tered the lists in favor of Mr. Stewart may seem strange, until it becomes known that one of the most affecting scenes ever pulled off in Olympia oc curred after Samuel H. Piles had plucked the senatorial plum. It is re ported that Senator Foster, with the ashes of defeat on his toga, hunted up ex-Senator Wilson, who was also nursing a heart bowed down with grief and woe, and th? reconciliation that took place between the defeated candidates is said to have been one of the most touching nature. It is reported on good authority that Senator Foster told ex-Senator Wilson that he was sorry for everything he had ever said about Mr. Wilson, and only wished he had said more so that he could take it all back. Then they fell into a clinch, metaphorically if not literally, and wept on each other's neck until friends had to raise um brellas in order to save the carpets. Plans to Got Even.- After seeing Senator-elect Piles come under the wire a winner. Senator Foster sorted out his railroad passes, summoned Private Secretary Sammons and hied himself to Washington, with the ghost of a smile on his face, but with a rangling within his soul to get even with Ankeny, who in the par lance of the street had "failed to de liver the goods" to the Tacoma mill man. As soon as the news of an election of a new senator was flashed to Wash ington, D. C, a dispatch was started back to Mr. Piles to the effect that the nomination for postmaster of Se attle would be hung up pending his arrival in the national capital, and no secret was made of the fact that Mr. Piles did not favor Mr. Stewart. The story came from Olympia that Mr. Piles woidd make an effort to land State Senator O. 'A. Tucker. But Senator Foster does not propose to be ignored this way. Listen to the outburst of the senior senator, as tel egraphed to The Times today from Washington. Foster. Declares Himself. "I have some rights as United States senator and I propose to do my best to secure the confirmation of George M. Stewart as postmaster at Seattle. I don't propose that Senator Ankeny shall absolutely run the affairs of this delegation as long as I am in the sen ate. I will be here during the re mainder of my term, whether if is thirty days or thirty hours, and, by G—r I will assert my rights. Senator Anr keny has no good grounds for ing Mr. Stewart and he is delaying action only in the interest of Mr. Piles. I don't propose that the nomination of Mr. Stewart shall be held up for any ,such reason as that.'* | This" declaration of war on the part 'of the senator from Tacoma was sent to The Times' correspondent at Olym? pia from Senator-elect Piles. Mrt .Piles replies as follows: "I don't believej that Senator Foster aa d that. It does not sound like Seni ator Foster: He is & friend of mine and has been. I do he would do that. As I understand the s'tuatlon. no action will be taken upon the postmaster fight until I reach Washington. I shall leave for the east about February 15, and will remain at the capital until congress adjourns. If a special session is called I will stay for that." That Senator Foster Is going to de vote the remainder of his term to get ting even with the men who did not rally to his support during the sena torial fight may be judged from the fact that today he preferred charges of political activity against Charles B. Hopkins, United States marshal for this state. President Roosevelt has promised to have the case investigated, but Senator Foster intends to take up the matter with Attorney-General Moody, so as to get quick action. Questions Hopkin's Taste. Mr. Hopkins was one of the princi pal supporters of Charles Sweeny for United States senator. It is under stood that Senator Foster did not ob ject so much to the activity in poli tics displayed by Mr. Hopkins as he did to the alleged poor taste displayed by Mr. Hopkins In picking a candidate. Now, had Mr. Hopkins been busy sup porting Senator Foster for re-election, he would—but what is the use of spec ulating farther. As Mr. Piles has promised to take care of Mr. Hopkins, and as Senator Ankeny feels kindly disposed toward the marshal, Mr. Hopkins is not wor rying a bit about the action of Sena tor Foster. He likes to laugh, and h3 thinks this is a good time to indulge himself. Still another row has broken out between Senators Foster and Ankeny. Senator Foster has had E. P. Kings bury named as surveyor-general to succeed himself. Senator Ankeny promptly charges bad faith. He says: , Charges Bad Faith. "The understanding between Senator Foster and myself was that neither was to make any recommendation un til he had notified the other. Senator Foster did not live up to this agree ment. I have not yet determined whether or not I will oppose the con firmation of Mr. Kingsbury." Senator Ankeny himself had a can didate for surveyor-general in the per son of J. B. Welty, formerly state sen ator from Lewis county, and it is said that while Senator. Foster was seek ing re-election he gave Ankeny's peo ple to understand that he would favor Mr. Welty for the place. But maybe the fact that Mr. Ankeny's friends voted for Piles instead of Foster had j something to do with Senator Foster's changing his mind. From the fact that the only way the citizens of this state can tell- they are represented in the United States sen ate is by watching the roll call, this fight between the senators for a dis tribution of the patronage is amusing.

Hardly had I commenced to treat him—of course. without his knowledge—than he became better, judging by the way he walked. Day by day. he improved, and at the end of a few weeks he seemed almost well. "Then I was introduced to him by a mutual acquaintance and the first thing I said to him was: "I am rejoiced to see how you have improved, for I have taken a great interest in your case."

JOSETJH CHARRIER, ADRIAN MAGAX.LON. » PAGE THREE DID LA BLANCE SUICIDE? BODY OF MAN SUPPOSED TO BE THE MARINE FOUND NEAR ALVISO. Description Tallies With That of La Blance Who Ones Whipped Jack Dempsey. The body of a man found in a slough near Alviso, California, a few days ago. is believed to be that of George La Blanche, the once noted pugilist, al though the coroner's * investigation failed to disclose the man's identity to a certainty. As there were no marks of violence on the body, it was evidently a case of accident or suicide, with the preponderance of evidence in favor of the latter supposition. The victim was about 5 feet 8 inches in height, weighed about 180 pounds, and was probably 45 years of age. He was well developed physically. He had gray hair and moustache, arid a week's growth of beard. He wore a black suit that was in fair condition, but' there was nothing in the pockets to assist in the identification. The index tinker of the left hand was crooked at the first joint, and there was a scar on the bridge of the nose. The body showed indications of hav ing been in the water for several days, but no marks of violence were found. It was stated at the inquest, that the man claimed to be La Blanche, the pugilist. He told the railway agent that he was a deserter from the navy and wanted to give himself up. He told others that he was accused of be ing a deserter and said he was going to drown himself. The description given above tallies with that of George La Blanche, "the Marine" who was a noted pugilist some years ago. La Blanche came into prominence when he defeated Cham pion "Jack" Dempsey in San Francisco with the famous "pivot blow." He nfterwards traveled with John L. Sul livan, but of late years he has not been prominent. He was well known south of Market street in San Francisco. Jenkins to Quit the Game. CLEVELAND, 0., Feb. 9.—Tom Jen kins has made up his mind that wrestling does not pay, since his sec ond defeat at the hands of Frank Gotch. "Yes, it is true that I am thinking of retiring."' he said. "The fact is, the public have been swindled so often by fixed wrestling bouts that where form erly there were dollars in the game there are only pennies now. A wrest ler has to work hard all the time, much harder than the "pugs." and his compensation is much smaller. I am convinced that this is unfair, and I am going to quit the game." Lion to Meet Gotch. NEW YORK, Feb. 9.—Charles R. Cochran, manager of Georges Hacken schmidt. champion wrestler of the world, who is at the Brewlin House, said today that the Russian would not rest until he had met Gotch. hence the match.
