GERMANY AND
RUSSIA ON
VERGE OF
WAR
London, Dec. 4.—Russia has re
torted to the "rattling of the German
■word" in the Balkan war tangles.
She has declared that she will not
admit a repetition of the methods
used when Austria occupied Bosnia
and Hercegovina.
"Such intimidution will frighten
nobody," exclaims the Novoc-Vreyma,
commenting on the German chancel
lors giving prominence to the idea
of war.
The war parties both In Russia
and Austria-llungury seem to hold
the public platform for the moment
against the peaceably disposed minis
ters of those countries. Any untow
ard incident or ptovocativc act on the
part of Servla, would, in the opinion
of diplomats hero. In a moment set
Austria-Hungary in motion uml this
probably would loosen forces In Bus
sia which the government of the Rus
sian empire would find itself unable
to resist.
The Novoe-Vreyraa continues:
"History is repeating Itself, but It
Is not so easy now to force Kusslnn
diplomacy into u faint-hearted re
treat."
The immediate withdrawal of the
vaat Russian deposits in the German
banks is advocated in her refusal to
adhare to the armistice signed yester
day It would uecear-arily throw Bul
garia more closely Into the cuibrure
of Bervia and give fresh t ncourage
men t to the Servian resistance to the
European powers, who arc prnctieally
unanimous In condemning the Serv
ian demands.
If Aoatrla-Huagary should attempt
as kas been suggested, to employ
Rowmsnla to keep Bslgarta quiet In
tbs sweat of an Anatrla-Serrlan war.
It Is though that such action would
only enlarge tho area of conflict and
precipitate a general catastrophe.
Any Intervention by Roumania, it
Is argued, would Inevitably compel
Russia to take drastic action on be
half of the Slavs In the Balkans.
Diplomats realize that the crisis
demands Immediate treatment and ef
forts to bring a lion t an ambassador
ial conference as uqlckly as possible
have been renewed as it Is thought
that this is the only means of bring
ing the necessary pressure Into pllay
to extinguish the Incendiary tend
ency of the extremists in the var
ious countries concerned In the dis
pute.
Sofia, Bulgaria. Dec. 4.—The peace
plenipotentiaries representing Turk
ey, Servla. Bulgaria and Montenegro
will begin their work in London on

SECY. McVEAGH ATTACKS U. S. BANKING
AND CURRENCY SYSTEM; CAUSES PANICS
Washington. Dec. 4.—Strongly
urging radical reform of the "un
reasoned and unscientific” hanking
and currency system of the United
States. Franklin McVeagh, secretary
of the treasury, freely warns Con
gress In his annual report submitted
today that the federal government.
a« long as the present scheme exists,
will be exclusively responsible for
the commercial, industrial and so
cial disasters which flow from panics
and Attack, directly or Indirectly,
every home in the nntion.
The present system promotes and
develops panics and legislation is ur
gent, declares Mr. MacVcugh, in out
lining his idea or the necessary gen
eral provisions of an adequate relief
measure. Aside from affording flex
ible and elastic currency and reserv
es, such a revision, he says, should
bring the banks Into more organised
co-operation and provide for n cen
tral agency through which they
could work together, free of political
or trust control.
According to the estimates of the
Treasury Department, the secretary
forsecs a deficit of 922.nD6.023. ex
clusive of Panama Canal expendi
tures, for the fiscal year ending June
30, 1914, the first fiscal year of Pres
ident Wilson’s administration. In
cluding the Canal expenses, the de
ficit is estimated nt 952.780,455. The

SANTA FE AGAIN
KICKING ON
TAXES
Protesting against the assessment
of ruilroad property as fixed by the
state board of emiallzutlon. the Santa
Fe railroad company have appealed
to the Board of County Commission
ers for an adjustment of the tux mat
ter, and County Attorney R. T. Yea
man having udvised that the Board
bus no power to make the adjust

by tile railroad company to compel
an adjustment. The assessment of

whercnK the company Is willing to
pay on the basis of $12,300 a mil*
asking for a remission in taxes of
$2,185.92, which It claims to be
in excess.
County Attorney teaman contends
that the borrd has no power to ad
just the mutter and thereby puts the
mutter squarely up to the State Hoard
of Euailzation. Ho says he can find
nothing in the law that gives the
County CoimniMlonors the authority
to make an adjustment. Tin* Santa
Fe road has expressed Its willingness
to settle for tuxes on the basis of
$12,300 a mile, but the County
Treasurer, by tho derision of the
County Attorney, has been advised
not to accept a settlement on this
basis
The e’anta Fe road is Involved In
litigation with other counties of tin
state in which it has truckage and
property. Tin* County Attorney has

missioners to adjust the differences
A year ago the railroad company
submitted a cheek for taxes short of
the amount fixed to be paid. It Is
probable that the ease will come be

TESTIMONY TAKEN
IN ARCHBALD CASE
Washington. D. C.. Dec. 4.—Judge
Robert W. Archhald of the Commerce
court, faced the real heginnlg of hb
impeachment trial for the alleged
misconduct and misdemeanors today
when witnesses summoned by the
house managers conducting the pros
ecution testified before the senate
court.
Edward J. Williams of Dunmore.
Pennsylvania, near Scranton, was
first called to the witness chair when
the court convened. He said Judge
Archbold had given hltn a letter to
W. A. May, superintendent of the
Hillside Coal and Iron company,
from whom Williams was trying to
secure an option on the Katydid
"Culm dump". Mr. Williams said
Judge Archbald had no connection
with the option on the coni dump.
that year are $710,000,000, while the
ordinary appropriations are estimated
at $732,856,023. and the canal ex
penditureq nt $30,174,432. Undoubt
edly having probable tariff revision
in mind, the secretary announce.-]
that those estimates are bused upon
present conditions and lows.
For the current fiscal year, oil
ing Juno 30, 1913. Mr. MacVengh
estimates that there will he a sur
plus of $40,200,000, exclusive of
Panama Canal expenditures, and a
deficit of $1,800,000 including the
canal transactions. He estimates re
ceipts for this year at $711,000,000
and ordinary disbursements at $670,-
800.000. \
In connection with financial re
form, Mr. MacVeagh says the people
are helpless under existing evils. The
present system never permits free
action at any time, because its lia
bility to sudden constraint and re
striction is always a part of the na
tion's financial consciousness.
• "There never is a time,” continues
the secretary of the treasury, “when
there is any long look ahead; ex
cept when we are In the midst of a
panic, and when there is n long look
of disaster ahead. There is never
n long look of case and convenience
and prosperity ahead."

The Bull Moose lenders in Denver
say that nil they look for In Chicago
is to have Denver created the general
western headquarters tfnil to show
the rest of the country that Colorado
is on tlie map for that party. Tito
showing made by the party in Den
ver and in the state has already cen
tered interest on this city and state
and there is little doubt tlint Denver;
will be the headquarters for the
Rocky Mountain division of the par-
Thc Bull Moose, as n party, will
not take any Interest in the eoiuinp
commi'-sion form of government
struggle in Denver, the various Bull
Mooscrs acting independently in the
movement. This action was taken
for the reason that some of Hi cm
are for the charter convention and
some for the direct Initiative while a
few favor the mayor and assembly
plan of commission government. It
is realized by tho loaders tlint any
attempt to commit the party to one
plan would he detrimental, accord

RYAN ACCUSED
OF AIDING
DYNAMITER
TO ESCAPE
Indlunnpolis, Ind. Dec. 4.—Charg
es that Frank M. Ryan, president of
the Iron Workers' I'ulon, and Frank
C. Webb, New York, union official,
helped an accused dynamiter to es
cape were made in the cro.'H-exa mi na
tion of Ryan by the government at
the dynamite conspiracy trial today.
It was brought out that George O'-
Donnell, an Iron worker, ufter an
explosion on a bridge at Somerset
Mass., In June, 190 S, was convicted
of attempting to kill and that after
his release from the penitentiary h>*
escaped service of papers charging
him with dynuniltliig.
District Attorney Miller charged
Ryan and Webb with helping O’Don
nell to "make a get-away".
Ryan denied the charge, but ad
mitted the union paid several thou
sand dollars to O'Donnel, employed
lawyers In hi- behalf and conducted
a correspondence "to steal the march
on them when O'Donnell got out on
the first charge."
"Why were you and Webb so anx
ious to lia\.* O'Donnell escape and
why did you use so much of the un
ion's funds to help him when the
union treasury was Impoverished?"
asked Mr Miller
"We felt that lie was being perse
cuted. That was all," answered Ry
an.
'The wlttii. . nlro said J. .1. McNa
mara, now In prison as a dynamiter,
helped In the O'DouncU'M case.
As head of the Iron Workers' Un
ion, Ityau was questioned whether ho
tmuctioncd violence which the gov
ernment alleges prot-ded a ‘dyna
miting campaign" In labor disputes.
"When you learned through letters
that Phillip A. Cooley had knocked
a man down In New orlcuns so that,
the man had to have a sliver plate
put In his head, did you take any
flops to have Cooley removed as a
member of the union's executive
board?" asked the district attorney.
"All 1 learned was that Cooley had
been In trouble. I took no steps to
learn the facts," answered Ryan.
“Cooley wrote be had fixed things
with the court and had hired two
wltnooooa to testify fa!>.« !y ho ho
would escape Jail Did you take any
action about that?"
"I did not," Ryan said.
Ryan also denied knowledge of any
plnnn by Cooley to arrange for ex
plosions on non-union Jobs at Hous
ton, Texas, and other southern cities.
MEXICAN REBELS

Mexican Central railway. captured
the guard of thirty federal soldiers,
rohh. d the passengers, and burned
the train report refugees arriving
her.- at noon on another train which
was compelled to return to the bor
der.
Evidently mistaking the passenger
train for the armored troop train
due In Jaurcz from Chihuahua City,
the rebels, under Generals Orozco and
Carraveo removed some rails from
the truck near tin* station of Calla
ge and lay in ambush. Tho engine
of the train was wrecked and at once
the troop guard opened fire on tho
t( be I trenches. A number of the
guard were killed and wounded, the
train master fatally injured and it
is reported that an American pass
enger was killed. Eight of the pas
sengers, after being robbed, mode
their way north on a hand car and
were picked up by the southbound
train arriving today.
Washington, Dec. -I. Important
witnesses will testify at Washington
within a few days before the senate
suh-conitnittcc investigating condi
tions along the Mexican boundary,
chairman William Alden Smith said
today ll:<- committee would return to
the Mexican line to finish investi
gation and probably report to con
gress January I.
Senator Smith indicated that in
dependent representations were made
to President Tnft regarding reports
of violations of the neutrality laws.
"We found no evidence that favor
had been shown to General Orozco,"
said Senator Smith, “but I can not
say so much regarding the treatment
of Mndcro.
The nature of the committee’s rec
ommendations Is closely guarded.
