Dragomlroff, who enjoyed unlxjuuded favor at court, and was the moat popular man In the Rum-lan army, lost favor and hla office because he did not show moderation In quelling the recent strike riots at Kleff, which prac- Ucally Involved all the people of the town.

TOBACCO COMPANY NO TRUST Coart Derides It lias Hlaht to Refuse to Sell to Any Person. 8T. PAUL, Nov. 12.-The United States circuit court of appeals decided today that the Continental Tobacco company did not violate the Interstate Commerce law or the anti-trust law when it refused to sell to Joseph P. Whltwell, a St. Paul tobacco dealer, Its manufactured product. In a suit brought in the lower courts Whltwell claimed the company refused to sell Its products to him because he could not dis pose of the amount of goods required of him in a given time. Whltwell alleged that the Continental Tobacco company charged prohibitive prices for certain grades unobtainable else- where and attached as a condition to the sale of such goods that Its customers should not buy of companies competing with the Continental company. The court says: The tobacco company. and its competitors were not dealers In articles of prime neces sity, as corn, or veal, nor were they render ing public or quasi public service, like a railroad company. liach of them, there fore, has the right to refuse to sell Its commodities at any price. The court' goes further and says that the acts of the tobacco company are nothing more or less "than the lawful exerclxes of their unquestioned rights, which are In diftpenalble to the existence of competition or the conduct of trade," in favor of the Continental company. Judge Sanborn wrote the opinion, which was concurred in by Judges Thayer and. Vandervanter. MRS.

BRANDS ACTION MALICIOUS Senator Dittrich Talks of Grand Jury In Testigation of Pos'.offioj Charges. LAYS IT TO HIS OPPOSITION TO SUMMERS E. Rosewater Retnrns to Capital from ew York, Where He Pound Leading Financiers In a Hopeful Mood. (From a Staff Correspondent.) WASHINGTON, Nov. 12.-(Speclal Tele gramsSenator Dietrich arrived In Wash ington this morning. Having been shown telegrams that the I'nlted States grand Jury now in session In Omaha, would in all probability, be called tlpon to consider charges made against him that ho sold the Hastings postofflre appointment, the senator was greatly indignant. He char acterized the action of United States At torney Summers as malicious In the highest degree and gave reasons for his belief. He stated that for upwards of a year Mr. Summers had been endeavoring to besmear his character and standing for no other reason than that the senator wss supporting another candidate for United States district attorney; that ever since Senator Dlotrich had announced that he was In favor of another for the place, Mr. Summers had endeavored to club the senator Into submission to his retention In bis present office. Senator Dietrich added that threats of like character were made while he was governor of Nebraska by Joseph Hartley, defaulting state treasurer, said Bartley being a bosom friend of W. S. Summers and whom he believes Is Inspir ing the course now being pursued to em ploy the machinery of the courts vindict ively. "The Hastings postofflce auction fake," snld the senator, "was exploded months ago. Its revival at this time la transpar ent because the final settlement of the United States district attorneyship fight Is at hand." Brighter Flnnnrlal Outlook. Mr. Rosewater returned to Washington today from New York. Being asked as to how he found financial conditions In the great money center of the country the editor of The Bee stated that he had seen and talked with many of the leading financial magnates of Wall street. That he had personally Interviewed Mr. Selig- man, Ex-Secretary Gage, Mr. Vanderlip, formerly assistant secretary of the treas ury and others of high financial standing, Mr. Rosewater stated that as a result of the talk had with these gentlemen he be lieved that the present depression In stocks would be greatly modified by the beginning of the new year. Some of the men with whom Mr. Rosewater conversed believed that the west would eventually feel the present depression. This, however. Mr. Rosewater does not consider seriously, for he argues that by the time the west is likely to feel the contraction the govern ment will be paying out large sums of money for Interest on bonds and other Items which are settled at every year's be ginning. "The talk of Standard Oil company being against the nomination of Mr. Roosevelt, I learn from airtnentfr1 MOttrces Is wholly groundless," said Mr. Rosewater. "There are money Interests against the nomination of the president but I have no doubt that when the time comes they will be found In line, supporting the nominee of the repub lican party, because their safety lies In the election of a republican president. I take no stock In reports that emanate from Wall street about a concerted effort to de feat the nomination of President Roose velt. These reports come from the presi dent's enemies and consequently must be taken with much allowance. Inflation Is wholly responsible for the existing condi tions In the stock market. We are doing as much business now as we ever did. The west Is a lender Instead of a borrower, and Just as soon as the men who manipu late great financial propositions learn that there Is a limit to a property and Its earn ing capacity, Just that soon we will be on a financial footing which cannot be shaken. Conservative dealing is what we need most and Wall street Is realizing that proposi tion more than ever." Conference ef Iowa Delegation Called.

Just wait a minute and I'll run up and get the suit. Three minutes later: "Here it Is." "An" dara Iks your crock, maddam." Mrs. Blank observed that the peddler seemed unusually pleased with his bar gain, for he kept looking at the suit of clothes as he left the place. The next night "Ma, I can't find my good suit.

' That's what I get for buying a suit like dad's," exclaimed John, who occupies the Important position In this household of eldest son.'

MANY CANDIDATES IN RACE Senator Millard nays ' Dosen Wnnt Attorneyship and Three Fed eral Marshnlahlp. Senator Millard, who Intends leaving for Washington Saturday night, says that so far as he Is advised nothing has been done at Washington toward appointing a United States district attorney or a marshal for this district. "I have received no communication on the subject," said the senator, "and assume that the president has not done anything final since I last conferred with him. and I don't suppose he will, but he would re move a burden 'from my shoulders If he did. "How many candidates are there for these offices? Well, for the attorneyship at least a dosen. This Includes many prom inent 'lawyers In Omsha and out In the State, but I do not rare to discuss them or name them. Of course It Is generally known that W. 8. Summers, the present Incumbent, snd Harry Lindsay, chairman ef the state republican committee, are the two moat conspicuous, and then I think It Is quite generally understood that W. F. Gurley of Omaha wants the' office. I can not express any opinion as to the relative chances of success between the several candidates, but I know that those who sre keeping In the background are counting on the failure of both Mr. Summers and Mr. Lindsay to land. They are basing their hopes on thin. I think the matter will be settled within a reasonably short time. "As to the United States marshalshlp, there are three avowed candidates, so far as I know the present marshal, Mr. Matthews, ex-State Senator Newell of Cass county and Jules Jenal of Cedar county. Nor would I care to say what I think of the relative chances of these three candi dates. It also Is my opinion that no very long period will elapse before this appoint ment Is made." Senator Millard expected to leave for Washington today, but private buslnc matters Intervened and made It necessary for hlra to defer his departure until Satur day night. Miss Millard, who will accom pany her father, has recovered from her recent attack of Illness. DR. ANDREWS IN NEW YORK Head of Sebrnaaa University Makes Plea for Higher Type of Men.
