BOWEN REPLIESTO ROOSEVELT
Says Venezuelan Scandal Constitutes
a National Disgrace.
New York , June 22. Herbert W.
Bowen , formerly minister to Vene
zuela , made public a long statement In
reply to President Roosevelt's letter
dismissing him from the diplomatic
service , as a result of the Invostlga1
tion made by Secretary Taft Into the
controversy between Mr. Gowen and
Francis D. Lootnls , first assistant sec
retary of state. Mr. Bowen declares
that "the Venezuelan scandal constl
tutes a national disgrace. " He as
Berts that "the Loomls scandal per
vaded Caracas" and "constantly grew
worse and worse. " Mr. Bowen says
that shortly after he called the mat
ter to the attention of the department
of state , he received a cable offer from
Washington of diplomatic promotion
that would remove him from Caracas
"I admit , " he declared , "that I regard'
ed the offer as an attempt to bribe
mo , veiled under the offer of a higher
position and Inspired by Mr. Loomls. '
Mr. Bowen says the recent depart
mental inqnliy should not prevent "an
open and thorough Investigation into
all the facts. Suppression of truth will
never establish It. " He adds : "Tol-
ranue of evil will never crush It. No
office , however , should shelter a

Trial of Oregtn Senator Begins In
Earnest at Portland.
Portland , Ore. , June 22. The trial
of United States Senator John H.
Mitchell , charged with using his of-
lice for private gain in connection
with the land frauds In this state , be
gan in earnest in Judge DeHaven's
court. For the first time in his life ,
and at the age of three score and ten ,
Senator Mitchell faced a jury of his
peers. United States District Attor
ney Heney's arraignment of Mitchell
was most severe. His outline of th'e
case of the government was exhaus
tive , but It contained nothing that has
not heretofore been made public
through the Indictment returned
acalnst the aged senator. Attorney
A. S. Bennett , counsel for the defend
ant , denied the allegations of the pros
ecution , asserting that Senator Mitchell -
ell was guiltless In Intent and that
the only mistake the senator has made
was In changing the agreement which
had existed between himself and his
law partner , Judge Tanner , the latter
being one of.the persons indicted at
the instance of the government In
connection with the land frauds.

PREMIER ANDKING FOR PEACE
Swedish Government Docs Not Desire
to Coerce Norway Into Union.
Stockholm. Sweden , Juno 22. The
cxtiaordlnary BOSBIOII ol thu riksdag
Biimniiined by King Occur to deal with
thu momentous ( luestlou raised by
Norway's declaration dissolving the
union met lor business. The goveut-
ment ImmeiUately Introduced a bill
asking lor authorization to enter Into
negotiations with the Norwegian
slui thing and draw up a conditional
sett lenient of the questions Involved
In the separation of the dual kingdom.
Piemler Hai. , u-di spoke Ural , pointIng -
Ing out that It was not to Sweden's
'Interval to rcborl to coercive meas
ures. He leeommemled therefore en
tering Into negotiations tor a conven
tion by which guarantees should bo
obtained conducive to the mutual wel
fare of the two countries.
After t-overal members had ac
quiesced In the piemlpf's views , King
Oscar , with visible emotion , spoke as
follows : "It Is a painful step which
the council of state calls on me to
'lalie. My conscience tells me that 1
have , during my long reign , always
striven toward the object I had in
mind nt the time ol my accession ,
namely , the wollare of brother pee
ples. It Is truly painful to me to con-
'tribute to the dissolution of a union
In which I thought 1 saw the Independ
ence , security and happiness of the
united kingdoms. If , however , I am
ready to act thus It is In order to
avoid a Etlll worse t'Vil and in the con
viction that the union without mutual
accord would bring no real advantage
to Sweden. I have acted In
accordance with my conscience and al
ways In conformity with the constitu
tion and with the desire to work con
scientiously for the true welfare of
the two peoples. The bill presented
to the riksdag does not aim at reply
ing to Injustice by acts of coercion.
The union Is not worth the sacrifices
which acts of coercion would entail.
A union Into which Norway would bo
forced In such a manner would be of
little value to Sweden. "
The king concluded with expressIng -
Ing the hope that the Swedish people
would be guided by calmness and pru
dence and that God would give them
strength and unity to regain within
their own frontiers what they had lost
bv the dissolution of the union.

ruthlessly killing ; the strikers and dis
figuring their faces with their knouts.
It Is said that twenty-eight were

course of the riots the strikers set
fire to the Qandonrlne spinning mills
and fought the soldiers savagely In or
der to prevent the firemen from
quenching the flames. All business
has been suspended In the town ,
which , the report says , is like a city
of the dead , the populace fearing to
venture Into the streets.

Eighteen persons were killed and 100
wounded by volleys fired by dragoons
and Cossacks on a procession of 5,000
workmen which had been organized as

000 strong , with thirty red flaps ,

Trust and Deposit company , for years
rated amone the most reliable finan
cial Institutions In the community ,
closed Us doors and Albert Tabor , a
state bank examiner , was appointed
temporary receiver. The company will

president , will probably be appointed
permanent receiver. The failure of

COURSE IN SANTA FE CASE.

Nothing to Connect Them Indlvidul *

Washington , June 22. President
lloosevelt has taken occasion to ex-
pn ss himself In must positive dinm
complimentary of the Integrity and
ability of Paul Merion , former \lro
president of the Atchlsoli , Topoltn and
Kanla Ko Uallroad coinfTany , and now
concluding his duties as secrelir ! > of
the navy , that he may amtunu * the
chairmanship of Hie board of dlii > 't-
ors of the Kqtlltable Life Aasur.mio
society of New York. These expics
shins are contained In two letters one
addressed to the attorney general and
the other to Mr. Morton. The letters
were made public by the ndmlulsira
tion , together with a number of oth
ers , which , taken together , show the
precise point nf dllTerenue between the
department of justice and Messrs.
Harmon and Juilson , who recently re
signed as special counsel for the gov
ernment In the rebate ease Involving
the Santa Fo road anil the Colorado
Fuel and Iron company. The sperial
counsel wished to bring contempt pro
ceedings against the olllcers of tlm
road , which would have Included Mr.
Morton. Their position was that the
testimony adduced before the Inter
state commerce comr ' < < slon estab
lished a violation of the court order
of March 25 , 1902 , restraining the com
pany from executliiB- any agreement
to transport Interstate traffic at rales
lower than the published tariff of the
road. This testimony , they contend
ed , constituted a prlnia facie case
against the officers of the road and
the only way to 'ascertain their guilt
or Innocence was through contempt
Attorney General Moody Opposed to It.
Attorney General Moody opposed
bringing the contempt proceedings on
the grounds that while the evidence
before the commission might show a
violation of the injunction by the road ,
H contained nothing connecting any
officer of the company with such viola
tion. President Roosevelt took the
same view. Both the president ana
the attorney general agreed that con
tempt proceedings should be.uatl -
tuted Impersonally against the corpor
ations , In both the Colorado Fuel and
the International Harvester cases. The
latter case , the president says , stands
exactly on the same footing and In
volves practically all western roads.
The correspondence began with a
letter from Messrs. Harmon and Judson -
son to the attorney general , dated
Feb. 28 , last , in which was given a
review of the testimony In the Colorado
rado Fuel case before the Interstate
commerce commission , with the con
clusion that a violation of the Injunc
tion has been shown. In a letter dated
May 11 the attorney general disap
proved of contempt proceedings , as
suggested by special counsel , and
Bays : "There Is not a syllable of testi
mony that Mr. RIpley , the president of
the read , or Mr. Morton , then one of its
vice presidents , had any connection
whatever with the departure from the
published rates in favor of the Colorado
Fuel and Iron company , or that they
knew or suspected that transportation
was furnished In any manner differ
ent from that prescribed by the open
and published rate. "
Harmon and Judson Resign ,
The letter In reply to this con
tains the resignation of Messrs. Har
mon and Judson. It says , In part :
"The violation by a corporation of an
injunction directed against It and Its
officers always calls for a rule against
such of them as had control of its con
duct to show cause why they should
not bo held personally responsible.
It was their duty to see that the acts
forbidden wore not done as well as
not to do them. What we have said Is
peculiarly true of the great corpora
tions of our day. They cannot be im
prisoned and punishment by fine Is
not only Inadequate , but reaches the
real culprits only lightly , If at all. The
evils with which we are now confront
ed are corporate In name , but Indi
vidual In fact. Guilt Is always per
sonal. So long as officials can hide
behind their corporations , no remedy
can be effective. When the govern
ment searches out the guilty men and
makes corporate wrongdoing mean
personal punishment and dishonor , the
laws will be obeyed. "
In a letter to the president , under
date of Juno 3 , the cane Is reviewed
by the attorney general , In which Is
reiterated his views that proceedings
for contempt should be begun against
the railroad company , but not against
President Roosevelt upholds this
view In a reply under date of Juno 12 ,
ns follows : "I entirely agree with
your conclusions. In my opinion you
would be wholly without Justification
in proceeding Individually against the
officers of the Atchlson , Topeka and
Kanta Fc railway for contempt when
neither the Interstate commerce com
mission nor the special counsel you
have employed have developed a single
glo fact of any kind beyond the hold
ing of their offices tending to Impll
cato any one of these olllcers. Ono of
the onli-ci-H , Mr. Morton , Is a member
of my cabinet. This fact" Is not to Im
allowed to shield him. nor. on thu
other hand , Is It lo be allowetl to cau o
him lo bo singled out fur attack. "

REPORT oTEQUITABLE LIFE
Hendricks Sharply Criticises Manage
ment of the Society.
Albany , N. Y. , Juno 22. The report
of Superintendent Francis Hendricks
of the state Insurance department to
Governor HIgslns upon his Investiga
tion of the Equitable Life Assurance
society , was made public here. It Is
known In the title as a "Preliminary
Report , " and It sharply criticises the
management of the society , as well as
the new trust arrangement for voting
the stock agreed upon by Thomas F.
Ryan and the three trustees desig
nated by him. In conclusion , Super
intendent Hendricks says : "No super
ficial measures will correct the exist
ing evils in this society. A cancer
cannot be cured by treating the symp
toms. Complete mutuallzatlon , with
the elimination of the stock , to be
paid for at a price only commensurate
with its dividends , is , In my opinion ,
the only sure measure of relief. This
report will be transmitted to the at
torney general for such action thereon
aa ho may deem proper. "
James W. Alexander , president , and
James H. Iyde , first vice president ,
respectively , whose resignations were
accepted by Chairman Morton , are se
verely arraigned In the report. Gage
E. Tarbell , second vice president , Is
exonerated. Mr. Hendricks says it is
an open question whether President
Alexander ami the other officers and
directors who paitleipated with him
In the transactions of "James H. Hyde
and associates. " are not disqualified
under the Insurance law from hereaft
er holding any office In n life Insur
ance company. The report character
izes these transactions as unlawful.
The policy holders , however , the re'
port sets forth , are under great obli
gations to Mr. Alexander and th oth
er executive officers for demanding
the mutuallzatlon of the society and
the retirement of Hyde from Its control.

Moves that a great battle In Man

the Idea that the Japanese have com

as yet there have been no heavy col

are now pushing forward in force
along the railroad and tbe Mandarin

stretching from Slnglungchuaa , fif

The Russians retired their advance

are evidently retiring to their Hrst
