DAM GIVES WAY;
La Crosse, 'Wis., Oct. C. Telephone
advices say the west end of the main
dam at Hatfield went out at 10:30. The
dam was a solid concrete structure. 60
feet high and 100 feet wide. Efforts
are being made to confine the torrent
to the canal, but it Is admitted the sit
uation is desperate. Previous to the
breaking of the Hatfield dam, the Dells
dam, 18 miles up river, went out. The
water is the highest in years. The peo
ple are panic-stricken.
The plant of the I-a Crosse Water
Power company, valued at $5,000,000,
is menaced. A large district of Black
river valley, including the city of Black
River Falls, is under water. The dam
proper is still holding, but the waters
sent out warning farmers to take to
' high land.
Several farm houses floated down
stream in the terrific flood raging
here. Families that had occupied
these houses, it is feared, perished.
Hatfield is under water, but it is
thought no lives were lost there.

Berlin, Oct. 6. A group of French
men hoisted a French flag over the
fort at Agadir, Morocco, threatening
grave international complications. It
is announced France had proclaimed a
protectorate and that a French cruiser
was enroute to Agadir.
I1KPY LOCAL CALIPH.
The French government immediately
disavowed the action, and, as it is not
represented at Agadir, instructed the
French consul at Mogador to ask the
Moroccan authorities in ikp measnrou
to remove the flag and end the inci- !

The French flag was planted on an

his intention of retiring at the end

ed radically many plans which had
been in tentative preparation, par
ticularly among western Illinois re
publicans, who had expected Con
gressman McKinney would be renom

elected without difficulty in the
strong republican district which he
lias represented since the death of
Colonel Ti. F. Marsh In 1905.
A stiff battle immediately opened
among the brigade of politicians from
the Fourteenth district in Springfield
for the McKinney place.

Taft has turned north again. Tomor

will cross back into this state again
for a few hours before he leaves finally
for the Pacific coatt. The president's
engagement list at Pocatello includes
breakfast at the Commercial club, an
automobile trip to Bannock county
fair and an address. At T?ois he in
spects the barracks. Taft haa not
missed an opportunity to visit army
posts along his route.
In his speech before the chamber
of commerce today. President Taft
bitterly assailed critics of the United
States supreme court and asserted
anew his views as to the relation of
the government to business.
"I love Judges and 1 love courts,"
said the president. "They are my
ideals on earth that typify what we
shall meet afterward In heaven un
der a just God. And when the court
is doing its duty to have It question

SPKAKS WITH FF.RMNO.
. Taft spoke with more feeling than
h put into his Ietroit and Waterloo
speeches, but along the same lines.
He said he had as yet failed to re
ceive an answer to his challenge to
W. J. Bryan and other publicists to
cite single case of a combination in
restraint of trade which ought to be
condemned. Taft referred to the su
preme court disposal of the Standard
Oil and tobacco cases as "two great
decisions." 'They were two of the
greatest trusts that existed," he said,
"and In working out a decree the
court had to make a remedy.
"The remedy of any evil," he ad
ded, "was bound to produce for a
time not business disaster, but a dif
ficult situation that might make busi

Hut after a solution has been
worked out he saw no reason why
the country should not go on to a
better and greater prosperity.
"To one in my place," said the
president, "there Is no discretion
with reference to the trial of cases
brought to the attention of the ex
ecutive as violations of laws. Prose
cutions must go on. It Is not for the
executive to say he can withhold
criminal prosecutions, or any kind of
prosecutions. Just to help business.
Business must reform Itself, and
these executive duties must be per
formed under the oath of office that
I took and those under me took.
