American ; Association of Manufacturers,

the last two years and a half I a mply
want to say that from the outset I found
those engaged In the work of the t'h-io
Federation to be earnest, honest and faith
Our first year's work was principally or
ganisation and yet the conditions of ih
country soon brought us face to facs with
problems and gave ua the opportunities to
test the seal and the interest of those en
gaged In the work.

many thought we were undertaking a work
so stupendous that we could not succeed,

experience of the last two years when
those methods have been pursued there has

just as far aa that encroaches upon those

working for some object there will be a

SMITH DENOUNCES THE MEASURE
Former Postmaster Geaeral Makes da
Address la Which Ho I'rges
to Veto the Dim
HARRISBL'RQ, Pa., April 11. Every Im
portant newspaper In Pennsylvania was
represented at the hearing on the Grady
fialus libel bill by Governor Pennypacker
today In tbe hall of the house of repre
sentatives. ' Attorney General Carson sat with the gov
ernor throughout the hearing, but neither
Indicated what would be the governor's
action on the measure.
The governor and attorney general ar
rived la the hall promptly at 10 o'clock and
were greeted with applause. The governor
said the bill was a very Important one, and
he was anxious to hear both sides, 'and ho
suggested that two representatives from
each side be heard In order to save time.
He also suggested that the opponents of the
bill be heard first.
The opening speech was made by Charles
Emory Bmlth of the Philadelphia Press. At
the beginning of Mr. Smith's address Gov
ernor Pennypacker took exception to his
use of the word "Insolently" and suggested
that It would be well to omit strong ad
Mr. Smith accepted the suggestion, saying
t the same time that he spoke strongly
because he felt strongly.
' Bill la Poshed Through.
He said in part:
At the outset I beg to thank your excel
lency on behalf of all my associates for
granting this hearing. You have given u
what (he legislature ruthlessly and Inso
lently denied U3. Thla biJ waa rushed
through that body with unbecoming, U not
Indecent haste, in contempt of tn.j spirit
of the constitution, and 1 also believe In
disregard of Is , letter.
It deeply nffects our rights and our prop
erty. Vve asked for the hearing to wh.ch
we were entitled In the commonest, fair
piay among men. We were o:iUmitu
ously refusd ait opportunity to defenu our
rights and to protest against what we be
lieve t0 be a mammotn wrong, and this
shameful refusal compels us to appeal to
the fairness, the rectitude and the j.ist ce
"I'M governor of the commonweal h.
We accept the law whlcn holds u re
sponsible for actual injury when infllctej
by our publications,' even thougn In-dver-tant
and unintended, tor we know that
this la one of the necessary fl?ks of our
temper. It Is what the' public make it and
what' the people want:
Ineffective and Fntlle. '"
The great folly: of "this bill Is that It Is
utterly ineffective and futile for the pur
pose which it is really designed, while It
exposes regulable newspapers to the con
stant and unavoidable dinger of costly,
yeSatioua ,nd blackmailing suits. It must
fail of Its plain intent, while it is Infinitely
mlxchleveous in other directions.
Te very essence of libel is that the pub
llcatlon shall, be of a defamatory or in
jurious character. The law now rightly
holds the newspaper responsible for pub
lications of that nature. Hut this bill would
Incorporate a new principle In the code. It
would make any publication actionable In
which there has been neglljjence, even
where there is nothing of a defamatory or
Injurious character. It does not require
that the matter should be libelous. And
so, this bill practically makes every thcrir
rct publication actionable, no matter -what
Its character. Unlimited lields of litigation
what boundless sources of annoyance are
opened In this extraordinary provision.
In the presentation of the news of the
dy errors -will inevitably creep In. The
errors need not under thla bill be libelous.
They need only result from what may be
called negligence and every error may be
regarded sa showing negligence-at some
I'OiuL. .Thus, .eyery error, every misprint,
every mistake in any singles element of a
Statement may be made the basis of a pule
for .damages. What shark. will not leave
the trail of the trolley in his hunt for prey
to pursue the newspaper In this more pro
frees Governor to Sign.
Alex Simpson, Jr., a Philadelphia lawyer,
urging the governor to sign ths bill, said
the highest . court of Pennsylvania has de
clared that there Is a necessity for a
change in the laws governing newspapers
and read several other opinions by ths su
preme court to prove his contention that the
liberty of the press should be restrained.
Richard C. Dale, another Philadelphia at
torney, also spoke in favor of the bill.
Thomas V. Cooper, a member of the legis
lature, on behalf of the newspaper owners,
said that never since the adoption of the
constitution of 1873 had a bill passed the
legislature with only two readings as this
libel bill passed. He said undoubtedly '
the constitution had been violated In bass
ing the bill.- , .
' Cyrus G. Deere, attorney for the Reading
Eagle, urged that the bill discriminated
against the newspapers of Pennsylvania In
favor ot those printed In other states and
circulated In this state.
The governor, concluded' the hearing by
saying: "I am obliged to you, gentlemen,
for tbe help you have given me'.".'.'. -
Provisions of the Bill.
The libel bill provides that civil action
may . be brought . against any owner, or
managing editor of any newspaper pub
lished In Pennsylvania to recover damages
resulting from negligence on the part of
such owners or managing editors In publi
cations affecting the character, reputation
or business of citizens, and that compensa
tory damages also (may be ' recovered for
"the physical and mental suffering endured
by tha Injured parties;" and whenever such
publication is given special prominence by
the use of cartoons, etc., the jury shall
have tbe right' to award punitive damages
against the defendants.
It also provides that every newspaper
published in Pennsylvania shall publish on
the editorial page the name of the owner
or owners, together with the name of the

Ask for Tfew Trial In DIs-

GRAND ISLAND,; Neb., April 21. (Spe
cial.) The motion for a rehearing in the
Miles will casfthss beet .occupying ths at
tention of District Judge J. R. Thompson
and the numerous; barristers engaged In the
case all day yesterday and today, and this
evening the aixutntat has but fairly begun.
There are present representing the claim
ants under the alleged new will Hon. J. L.
Webster bf OmabaVT. J. Rlngolsky-Ot Kan
sas City, Smith, P.. Cault ot St. Louis, ex
Governor Crlteodei of St. Louis, J. H. At
wood of Leavenworth, and Revls Revls of
Falls City, and .representing, tbe claimants
under the old will,. C. GUlespt, F. Falloon
and Judge Martin of. Falls City.
. The decision of the district court in favor
of Joseph Miles, the claimant under the
old will, having been affirmed by the su
preme court, the claimants under the new
will lire asking for a rehearing on the
ground that considerable new evidence has
been secured . since the case went up on
appeal. When the case was tried the first
time the; claimants under the new or St.
Louis will bad the, testimony of two men
who had witnessed the new will, but did
not Have any person who had read the will,
nor ' the testimony of the lawyer who bad
written the will, nor were they able to
prove the contents' of the will. The result
was that the proof was defective In two
respects; it d)d not then prove the St. Louis
will to have a elkuse revoking all former
wills and not sufficient proof to show that
the St. Louis will was inconsistent with
the prior will.
, The attorneys for the claimants under the
new will contend that In the decision of the
supreme court every point of law contested
was decided in favor of the contentions of
the contestants, or the claimants under the
St. LotIs will, with the exception of the
points' mentioned.' They now claim In the
hearing for a new trial to have that neces
sary evidence. The ' additional testimony
Is that of ths lawyer who wrote the will,
that of the execution of the will by the tes
tator, Stephen B. Miles, In a hotel at St.
Louis, evidence as to the contents ot the
St. Louis will, the disposition of the prop
erty to the different heirs, and fourth, evi
dence of the existence ot tbe clause tn the
St. Louis will revoking all prior wills. The
testimony of the lawyer who drafted the
will, Paul F. Gadsden, la supplemented by
that of the stenographer who made a copy
of the will on the typewriter and also by
the testimony of Judge Wind of St. Louis,
with whom Gadsden had a consultation at
the time, as to the particular will, and to
whom Gadsden gave some account of tbe
execution of the will. At this time Gadsden
was boarding with one Thomas L. Cannon
and Cannon testifies that Gadsden men
tioned to him having written the will for
Stephen B. Miles. This all took place In
1897, more than a year before Miles died.
The claimants relats as a reason why
they did not have this testimony at ths
first trial was that they did not know Gads
den had written tha will; that Gadsden was
at the time In Mexico, having removed
thither, and that it was only through the
circumstance that In the course of time
Cannon happened to speak to Judge Gault
