THREE PEOPLE NAMED TO MURDER ROOSEVELT TAKE THEIR OWN LIVES A WOMAN TELLS STRANGE STORY INSPIRED BY GOD TO TELL THE TRUTH, MRS. DEXHEIMER RE LATES SCHEME OF AN ARCHISTS. Ghe Tells How They Planned to Take Life of Roosevelt and How the Three People Selected to Do It Took Their Own Lives. Now York. November 20.—Inspired by God to tell the truth, as she said, Mrs. Lena Dextfelmer, once an anar chist, but now a Methodist, told one of the most amazing tales today at her home In Hoboken that was ever related concerning the reds. It was, In brief, that three persons, selected by the order in the last two years to assassinate President rtoose veli had each in turn committed sui cide rather than carry out the fatal odict. Emma Goldman, she said, was not a rabid anarcnist until she returned from a trip to Europe in 1886. Mrs. Dexheimer realized the sinfulness of her position as a "red,” she said, when her husband persuaded her to Join the First Methodist church. It was after this that she learned of the plans to slay the president. The tlrst person chosen, she said, was a Frenchman named Meloy. He arrived hero at Christmas, and sne said she was one of those to meet him. He told her in secret that he had -mi chosen to kill Roosevelt ana that ais life would pay the forfeit il tie refus ed. She persuaded him to abandon the plan, but knowing that he would ho slain If caught by the reds, he went back to Paris and was mere kill ed in an alleged accident in the street. She is sure ne threw himself in front of a car and that over him. It was a meeting of the Mothers' Club of the First Methodist church of Hoboken which Mrs. Dexheimer had been induced by her husband to join, that she first, told the story of Presi dent Roosevelt’s alleged peril. She had told it before to the pastor, the Rev. Charles L. Meade, and to two de tectives, but they had kept it a secret. Perhaps it might have remained a se cret out for Mrs. Duxbeimer's anxiiety to confess her sins to her sisters of the Mothers’ Club. The next sne heard was anew lot tery had been cast.-and a man named Muller, of Mullen, living in Avenue A, at No. 142, 145, or 147, had drawn the f;% > slip. This man was found dead in bis room a few days later of poison, self-administered. Again the lottery was drawn, and this time a woman, a Miss Shroeder, living hj Harlem, was the chosen of the order. She also ended her life by poison. Rev. Charles L. Meade, Mrs Dtix helmer’s pastor, will make no state ment regarding trie so-called confes sion. CASE WAS CONTINUED.

SENAIOR SYMONS TALKS OF SUGARCANE INDUSTRY SAYS ENOUGH CAN BE RAISED IN THIS SECTION TO SUPPLY WORLD WITH SUGAR. In Tuesday’s Atlanta News appear* ed a cartoon of Senator W. F. Sy mons, of mis district. The cartoon showed our senator in the light of a typical farmer, with bunches of sugar cane in his arms, i connection with the cartoon, the following interview with the senator also appears: "Between the Savannah and St, Marys rivers in the counties of south Georgia that border on and run back from the Atlantic coast, there can be raised enough sugar cane to supply the United States with sugar.” de clared Senator W. F. Symons, of the fourth district, comprising the coup tics of Glynn, Camden and Charlton. While a member of,.the last house from Glynn county, Mr. Symons en deavored to have the state establish an experiment station near Brunswick to develop the sugar industry. He was not successful in passing his bill, but it attracted the attention of the peo ple all ovsr the state, aari resulted in the government establishing four ex perimental stations in the sugar cane region, with an appropriation of $20,- 000, and tae report of this experiment is anxiously awaited. “This section of the state is spe cially adapted f< r sugar cane raising,” continued the senator, 'and it will prove from three to four times more profitable than cotton to planters. The price of Georgia cane syrup has in creased from 15 and 20 cents to 30 and 40 cents a gallon, and if a uniform system and standard of quality is es tablished by these experiments the de mand will be almost unlimited. A very much larger acreage of cane has been planted this year than ever be fore, and my prediction is it will soon become the great crop of that sec tion and make our people rica." To Raffle a Horse.

Will Have to Pay SSO for Each County to Which He Ships Liquor. The following from yesterday’s Constitution will be of interest in Brunswick: The liquor dealers of tlie state will no doubt be up in arms against a prop osition to tax them heavily for ship ping liquor into dry counties which was adopted yesterday by the ways and means committee of the house. The amendment to the genera! tax act which proposes to do this, was of fered by Mr. George, of Morgan, and was adopted by the committee by a vote of 9 to 7. It puts a tax of SSO o. a liquor dealer for eaen county into which ue ships liquors to consumers. if a liquor dealer ships liquor to pri vate individuals or consumers in fifty counties in the state, t/iis amendment would impose upon him a specific tax of $2,500. It does not interfere, how ever. with the shipment of liquors to liquor dealers in other counties. A motion was made to reconsider the amendment, and u is probable it will (tome up lor further consideration at the meeting of the committee today. Albert Howell appeared before the committee in tne interest of the mer chants of Atlanta io oppose the in crease in the tax on bucket shops and dealers in futures.

He's a Mormon, and May Believe in a Plurality, So Far as Women Are Concerned, So He'll Have to Fright For Seat. Washington, November 19.—1 t is ex pected that the senate committee on -lections will be overwhelmed with rotations from all parts of the country against the seating of Apostle Heed Smoot, of the Morman church, who vill undoubtedly be elected by the Utah legislature to succeed Senator Rawlins, There is no question that I he legislature which has to choose the senator is republican and there is, ;ur>,her, no possible doubt that Smoot will receive the indorsement, of the republican caucus. Apostle Smoot s selection is due to a clever deal between the republican leaders and tiio powers of the Mormon iiureli, as the result of which the re publicans gain two United States sen ators. The power ot the Mormon church is great, not only in Utah! - where it. practically dominates, but in, Idaho as well, and the loss of the Irta ■io legislature, involving as it does fhe Joßat bt Senator MtntrdM. Writs ft) lie support given the republican tick- f i by the Mormons. It is understood that a large number of the members J the church were nominated for the egislature and for state offices by the republicans. Church influence car ried the day in Utah and Idaho. Lining Up for Fight. Tne following dispatch shows hull a hard - tight will be made on Smoot: Salt Lake, Utah, November 19.—The Ministerial Alliance of Salt Lake City :s making preparations for a vigorous iighl against the election of Apostle Reed Smoot to the United States sen ate, and failing in this, to carry the right against him to the halls of con gress. A plan for organized effort on ibis line, il is said, already has Deen outlined, and will he taken up at the next meeting of the alliance. The general idea is to make a’light similar io that waged against Brigham H. oberts in me house. Not only will the matter oe brought! -loro the non-Mormons of the state, at if the fight is unsuccessiul in the .egislature, then an attempt will be made to maite Mr. Smoot’s election a national issue, and a petition will be. drafted to congress asking that Mr. ’moor, as a hign official of the Mor mon church, be refused a seat In tne .-.enate. No Plural Wives in Sight. The case of Brigham Roberts, who was denied a seat in the house of rep resentatives on account of the charge ■ hat no practiced polygamy under the protection of the Mormon church, will, of course be rehearsed by those who will seek to prevent tne seating of Apostle Smoot. vYhile it is ciaimcu ■hat, unlike Roberts, Smoot has no plural wives at present, the anti-Mor mon sentiment is sure to see sufficient similarity in the two cases Lo warrant agilation against the man who will ome to llie senate with the creden ials of tne proper Utah authorities. It’s a sale bet, however, that Smoot will not only be denied a seat, but that the senate will declare in effect i hat it has no power to go behind the returns. Tne republicans ol’ the uouse and some of the democrats were swept off their feet by the pop lar outcry, even if the cause were dentically the same, would not nave ■he same effect upon the senate. The members of that body aro very jeal ous of its reputation for conservatism and whatever case might be made out against this senator-elect there would be no indecent haste in its considera tion, as was the case at the house
