MRS. LONQWORTH 8UDMIT8 TO
OPERATION FOR APPENDICITIS.
WAS ENTIRELY SUCCESSFUL
Operation Performed by Drs. Rlxlyand
Flnney President Roosevelt Re
mains With His Daughter Until
Danger Is Over.
Washington , Doc. 12. It wns found
necessary to perform an oporatlon on
Mrs. Nicholas Ijongworth for appcndl-
cltlH. She wns nttondod by Dr. Hlxly

specialist. The operation was In every

In the sick room until the doctors an

The best show of the season wns
greeted by the poorest house at the
Auditorium Wednesday evening , when
the Boston Ideal Opera company pre
sented that delightful comic opera "La
Mascotto. " This piece contains great
est possibilities for fun and every
member of the company Is capable of
making the most of every opportunity.
The two brothers , F. O. Burgess , bari
tone , and W. H. Burgess , bass , besides
having voices full of harmony and
music , are a pair of comedians that
make a whole show by themselves.
The one poker game scene , which
these brothers do even bettor than It
was presented here before , Is worth
alone twice the price of admission. F.
W. Walters , as Plppo in "La Mas-
cotte , " has n tenor voice of surpass
ing sweetness. Mr. Walters has been
here before In Fra Diavolo and he was
the tenor with the Andrews Opera
company when that popular organiza
tion used to mnko this territory. By
comparison , It may bo truthfully said
the Boston Ideals nro fully the equal
or even liotter than the Andrews com
pany wns in its palmiest days , cither
of the Burgesses being as funny as Ed
Andrews was in his happiest moments ,
Little Winifred Crowley , as Bettina ,
won the house from the moment she
came upon the stage. She has a soft
soprano voice that nt once nppeals to
Jfc her audience. Miss Crowley is a na
tive-born Philippine , with densely
black hair nnd light complexion , a
dainty , winning llttlo person of beau
tiful face and form. The company hns
- not a homely woman in the cast , Lucia
2ora being perhaps the most beautiful
from nn American standpoint. Her
execution of the Highland fling , In
Scottish costume , wns the best spe
cialty given during the evening.
Thnt the company did not draw a
good house in Norfolk Is no fault of
theirs. It wns due to the fact that
they followed two shows which had
stung the people , and to the further
fact that the advance man of this com
pany did not give enough Information
concerning the company to form an
impression of what they are or who
they are. They are a first class com
pany In every respect and the seats
should have sold at $1.00 Instead of
Will Return Monday Evening.
At the earnest solicitation of the
Auditorium management , together with
a number of those who were present
Wednesday evening , the Boston Ideals
have consented to play a return en
gagement In this city Monday even
ing , at which time either "La Mas-
cotte" will be repeated or "Olivette"
will be given. There Is no doubt but
the company will draw a big house
Monday evening , as It Is without ques
tion one of the wittiest , brightest com
panies that has ever made good In
Norfolk. And comic opera Is the kind
of a show that always pleases a Nor

JENKINS ANDJONS INDICTED
Former President of Brooklyn Bank
Accused of Conspiracy to Defraud.
New York , Dec. 12. John C. Jen
kins , formerly president of the First
National bank of Brooklyn , and his
three sons were indicted by the
Kings county grand Jury on charges
of conspiracy and perjury. The four
Jenkins had been warned that they
would be wanted in court and were
present to be arraigned. Their coun
sel pleaded not guilty in their behalf
and ball for John G. Jenkins , Sr. , was
fixed at | 10,000 , while that of his sons
was made $2,500 , as they are already
under heavier ball in other cases.
The charges against them are based
on the loans alleged to have been
made by the First National bank o
Brooklyn and the two trust companies
to the accused men. It Is charged tha
they engaged in a conspiracy to se
euro these funds in excess of 10 p.er
cent of the paid-in capital stock o
the various concerns and that reports
to the state superintendent of banks
were so falsified by them as to con
ceal the fact that the loans were
made. The charges of perjury wore
based' on this alleged concealment.

JEFF DAVIS MAKES HIS MAIDEN
SPEECH IN SENATE.
TAKES RAP AT STANDARD OIL
New Member from Arkansas Delivers
Passionate Address In Favor of Hlf
Bill Doing Away With Combina
tions in Trade.
Washington , DOc. 12 | Passionate
oratory maiked the proceedings of tha
senate. Senator Jefferson Davis of
Arkansas , who , when elected , de
clared that he would attack the trusts
immediately after taking his seat , ful
filled his piomlse , although he was a
few days late In doing so. The speech
was filled with sensational declara
tions and was given with that vigor
for which the Arkansas senator is fa
mous in his own state. Quaint phras
ing , pointed denunciations and evi
dences of Intense emotion character
ized' his remarks. Ho was given a
SENATOR JEFFERSOil DAVIS ,
careful hearing by senators and the
galleries were well filled throughout
the time ho held the floor.
Senator Davis began by declaring
that it was not his purpose to retain
his seat in the senate until his hair
shall have grown gray before taking
up his work actively in that body.
After declaring that his bill , rigor
ously enforced , would kill the trusts ,
with dramatic effect e challenged any
senator to step forward and contest
the issue with him.
A domestic corporation found fix
ing the price of any article would , by
his bill , he said , have its charter for
feited and a foreign corporation
guilty of such an act would not be al
lowed to do business in the United
"Everything , " declared Senator
Davis , "Is in a trust except acorns
and persimmons. Holy writ , " ho said ,
"admonishes us to go into the vine
yard and work. I have found nothing
In the good book that warrants any of
us going Into the vineyard to corner
all the grapes. "
He read some statistics on the
Standard Oil and stepping out into the
center aisle , stamped his foot , and
"Tho Standard Oil Is the old he-
trust of the country. It is the trust
that has all the paraphernalia and
earmarks of a trust. I dislike the
Standard Oil. I hate the smell of coal
oil. Petroleum makes me sick. Oh ,
sir , something ought to be done to
curtail the great power of this mons
ter trust John D. Rockefeller trust

ON WITNESS STAND IN PETTI-
BONE CASE AT BOI6H.
NKW FEATURE OP EVIDENCE
Dsolarea Dsfandant Told Him He Pur
chased nlflss In Denver for Usa In
Causr d'Alene Riots and Showed
Him How to Usa "Pattlbona Dope. "
Boise , Ida. , Dae. It. For four
boura in the trial of George A. Petti-
aout for the murder of former Gov
ernor Steunenbarg , Harry Orchard
was on tha witness stand , and when
court adjourned his story was only
iialf through. Under the guidance of
James H. Hawley , chief counsel for
.ho prosecution , Orchard told of the
blowing up of the Bunker Hill and
Sullivan mine in tha Couur d'Alones ,
: he killing of Charles MoCormack and
Mol Bock In the Vindicator mine In
the Cripple Creek district of Colorado
rado , the murder of Lyto Gregory in
Denver , the blowing up of the Inde
pendence depot and the attempts
made on the life of Governor Peabody
In the main the testimony was the
same as given at the Haywood trial ,
but the questions emphasized Petti-
bone's alleged conspiracy. An entirely
now feature of the evidence was the
statement by Orchard that Pettlbono
had told him in 1904 that he pur
chased 100 rifles from a hardware
company in Denver and shipped them
to the Couor d'Alenes for use in the
riots of 1895. The witness said Pottl-
bone told him he paid $1,500 of West
ern Federation money for the rifles.
Another portion of the testimony
which the state regards as Important
was the statement that Pettlbone vis
ited Orchard's house at Cripple Creek
and showed him how to use "Petti-
bone dope. " It Is claimed by the prose
cution that corroborative evidence
will be Introduced.
Orchard Tells His Story Again.
Orchard began by tolling of his first
visit to Denver in December , 1903 ,
when he went alone to Federation
headquarters and introduced himsell
to Meyer , Haywood and Pottibone.
He said Haywood tofi him he had
done a good job at the Vindicator and
that they promised him money , later
giving him $300. Going back to Crip
ple Creek , he said , he set to work
with Owney Barnes making bombs for
the purpt > of blowing up the coal
bunkers ac the Vindicator mine and
imprisoning the nonunion workmen.
He soon returned to Denver as a dele
gate to the convention of the State
Federation of Labor and again saw
Meyer , Haywood and Pettibone and
talked over Cripple Creek matters
with them. He met Pettlbone at this
time , ho said. Meyer introduced him ,
telling him that Pottibone was "al !
right. " "Pettlbone took me to his
store , " said Orchard , "and told mo
about setting off giant caps with acid
and a peculiar burning substance
showing me how to compound the mix
ture. I took some homo with me
Pettibone told me i e would como to
Cripple Creek and show me how to
use It. Ho came to my house soon
after , under the name of Morgan , one
mixed up some 'Pottibone dope. ' "
Orchard said that the stuff brought
by Pettlbone was burled and that ha
had described the place after his ar
roBt and it had been dug up.
The witness told of his third visit to
Denver and of accompanying Meyer to
Montrose as his bodyguard. In April
Orchard said , Haywood told him he
wanted him to "bump off" Governor
Penbody , and he went to Crlppia
Creek to get Steve Adams to help
him do the Job. Ho then related now
they laid for Peabody with sawed off
shotguns furnished by IVttlbone , bu
failed. Attention was then turned to
Lyte Gregory , Orchard testifying that
Pettlbone and Steve Adams came to
him and told him the executive bean
had decided that he ought to be pu
out of the way. All three , ho said
planned to get Gregory , but only ho
and Adams were present when the
The blowing up of the Independence
depot , Orchard said , was plannei
while the executive board was In ses
slon. Fifty or sixty nonunion men
were on the platform when the ex
plosion occurred and' ' fourteen were
klllod. The next day hft went bncl
to Denver and talked to Haywood am
Pettlbone about the explosion. Petti
bone , Orchard said , told him It was a
good job , but that they should have
waltod until the train got in so as to
get more of them.

ROOSEVELT WILL NOT DE CANDI
DATE FOR THIRD TERM.
HIS POSITION IS UNCHANGED
Authoritative Statement Issued From
White House Reiterating His Fa
mous Declaration Made on Election
Nloht In 1904.
Washington , Doc. 12. President
Roosevelt will not bo a ciuidldata for
a third term. All doubt on this point
was dlspolled by tha authoritative
tateiaent from the Whltu Ilouaa
hat Mr. Roosevelt still adheres to
ho declaration of renunciation made
on the night of the election three
oarii ago. In the statement issued ,
'resident Rooaovelt says he has not
changed and shall not change the do-
clslou communicated to the American
looplo in 1004. It appears that Presi
dent Roosexolt had bean awaiting the
call for the Republican national con
vention to afford the proper opportu
nity for making hie position clear and
unmistakable , thus leaving the field
clear for Fairbanks , Taft , Cannon ,
Cnox , Foraker and ether declared or
receptlvo candidates for the Repub-
loan nomination. The president's
statement follows :
"On the night after election I mads
he following announcement :
" 'I am deeply sensible of the honor
done mo by the American people in
bus expressing their confidence In
what I have dona and have tiled to do.
I appreciate to the full the solemn
responsibility this confidence Imposes
upon me , and I shall do all that in my
power lies not to forfeit It. On tne
Ith of March next I shall have served
hreo and a half years , and this three
and a half years constitute my first
erm. The wise custom which limits
; ha president to two terms regards
the substance and not the form , and
under no circumstancoa will I be a
candidate for or accept another nomi
"I have not changed and shall not
change the decision thus announced. "
The announcement that tha presi
dent would' not accept the Republican
nomination came at too late an hour
; o become generally known In pollt-
cal circles , but among those who
Earned of It , Democrats and Repub-
leans alike , a feeling was general
that It left no element of doubt In the
presidential situation so far as relates
to the third term talk , and that it
definitely eliminates Mr. Roosevelt
from the contest now being waged.
Some Democrats , however , express
a belief that a Roosevelt stampede in
the Republican convention would
shake his resolution and that ho
\iuld prove no exception to the his
toric precedent that no American citi
zen over refused a presidential nomi
Administration Republicans declare
that the announcement gives a great
Impetus to the Taft boom , while tha
Democrats , many of the leaders of
which party are here to attend tha
meeting of their national committee ,
are shouting that It means "Bryan la
a walk. "
. TAKE NO SIDESMN TROUBLE
President Roosevelt's Orders to Colonel
nel Reynolds at Goldfield.
Goldfleld , Nev. Doc. 12. President
Roosevelt's communication from
Washington to Colonel Alfred Reyn
olds , In command of the federal
troops at Goldfleld , to the effect that
he is to take no sides In the trouble ,
and to Interfere with no person In any
way , unless such a course becomes
necessary to protect llfo after violence
lence has bd n committed , put a dif
ferent complexion on tha situation
This , coupled with the fact that
General Funston Is to arrive in Gold
fleld today to view the situation and
report to Washington , caused a com
plete change In the program of the
mine operators , who had hoped to bo
able , through Governor Sparks , to
have martial law declared' in Goldfleld
and to reopen the mines today under
thoaotlvo protection of the United
One thing that developed Is the
fact that the John S. Cook & Co. bank
will probably bo able to meet the first
payroll under the now wage schedule
In Goldfleld and that nil wages will
bo paid In gold hereafter. This will
have a tendency to Induce more of the
minors to return to work than might
otherwise do so , as the one grievance
appearing on the surface that led to
the present lockout was the fact that
