ON AMERICAN APPRAISERS
German Industrial Leaarue Issues Cir
cular to Exporter Calling
BERLIN. May SO. The German Indus
trial league has issued a circular to the ex
porter to the United States regarding the
treatment of German goods by the United
States appraisers. The circular points out
that great damage continues to be Inflicted
on European trade, particularly German
industry, . through making American gov
ernment prices the basis of appraisement.
The circular says:
All persons believe themselves forcibly
wronged since the McKlnley and Dlngley
laws went into effect, and, despite sworn
affidavits, etc., have been unable to get
justice, are hereby called upon to turn Into
the Industrial league In the interests of
the entire German Industry. The unten
ableness of the American market value as
a basis of assessments must be disproved
and it must be shown that a dangerous
game can and is played therewith. Drastic
examples are on hand, and must be sup
plied In the fullest manner possible.
We submit the following: ,
First Have you had difficulties in making
shipments to the United States regarding
the determination of the markft values
by the appraisers?
SecondWas the German or American
market value taken as a basis? .
Third Was your statement of prices
Fourth Did you lodge a protest with the
collector of customs or secretary of the
Fifth Wa the action taken legal or
Sixth Were you Injured through the ar
bitrary determination of value by Amer
ican officials, and how much?
Please attach samples and other means
of proof. We design that this material be
laid before the German government, and
particularly before Germany's representa
tives In the United States.

the town marshal.
Cockrlll and Marcum were killed In the
same manner, the assassin using the court
house for shelter and shooting his victim
tn the back In each case. Only the station
of the murderer and the position of the
men varied. Cockrlll being shot from the
court room window as he stood In the
street, and Marcum being shot from the
corridor as he stood In the hourt house
door. Witnesses have now told th grand
jury that they saw Curtis Jett In the aot
of committing both crimes.
The third assassination In the term ex
piring tonight wa not called Into con
sideration. The friends of the late Dr.
Cox declined to appear before thl grand
Jury, learning that the limited time would
not permit of a thorough examination and
desiring not to expose themselves to the
peril which they believed would follow
testifying In Breathitt county unless Indict
ments are assured, followed by what they
term "fair trials." Judge Redwlne dls
charged the Jury after a few word of
thanks for Its service.
The last Indictment was probably di
rectly due to the testimony this afternoon
of Capt3in John K. Patrick, who csme
here from Catlettshurg to testify. He was
met at the train by a detail of soldier,
who escorted him to the court houe,
guarded the place while he tetlfled. and
then escorted him home. H has been an
exile from Breathitt since shortly after
Cockrlll was killed last July, when It be
came known that h had seen the assassin
and when afterward attempt were made
to kill him. He ald ftefward when tell
ing of the killing of Cockrlll:
I wss sitting In my office directly across
1h street from the court house. I heard
three shots, snd looking M the court house,
siw three rifle barrels. Then I recornlsed
Jett at th window before he could dis
appear. I could not ee th face of the
other two men.

Bvrd said tonight he I well
plessed with th work of th grand Jury
"They hav returned all in maicimeni
that the evidence before them would war
rant," he ald. "The next grand jury win
b empaneled Monday and will contlnu
the Investigation Into th Marcum an
Cockrlll assassinations, and I antlclpat
that other Indictments will be found In the
Cockrlll case In the near future. W are
relying on evidence which will be brought
out at the coming trial to Implieat others.
If there be others "
Attorney Thomss Msrcum of Muskopee,
I. T., arrived this evening. He I a brother
of the murdered man and will assist In th
prosecution of Jett and Whit.
A detail of oldlers wa sent to th depot
to meet him, but he preferred to walk In
front of th escort through the town which
had been his hom for years. Ha I a
