of the Equitable Life Assurance society it

Alexander's Condition Critical.
James W. Alexander, former president of
tha - Equitable- Life Assurance society, is
In a critical condition in Unkaway sani
tarium within three miles of The Oaks,
the summer residence of James H. Hyde.
Attended by nurses and his own physi
cian, the patient is rarely conscious of hla
surroundings and requires constant atten
tion. The precise nature of Mr. Alexander's
Illness is more or less conjectural, but It
has become known that he has suffered
from kidney affection, has had a slight
apoplectic stroke and later exhibited symp
toms of nervous prostration.
Secrecy of an extraordinary nature has
ben observed by the Immediate family
of Mr. Alexander. So strict has been the
observance of this secrecy that even James
H. Hyde was unaware of the close proxi
mity of his former associate and chief.

WORRALL WILL PI BLIS1I A BOOK
After Snlna Grain Dealers He Will
Publish Ills Grievances.
A book dealing In the workings of the
Nebraska Grain Dealers' association Is
to be written by Thomas D. Worrall of
Lincoln. He made the announcement after
he closed his deposition yesterday after
noon. Conviction of the members for
violation of the anti-trust laws and $128,000
damages Is not all the vengeance that Mr.
Worrall desires. He says his lawyers would
not permit him to tell, on the stand, the
worst practices of the so-called grain trust
and to reveal these to the public he in
tends to write his book.
Mr. Worrall shoved a new and ex
pressive term over the typewriter and
into common usage Monday morning, when
he resumed his deposition in his suit to re
cover damages from and break up the Ne
braska Grain trust. The word Is "tat
tooed" and In the vocabulary of tha grain
dealer it means "boycotted by the organi
Mr. Worrall cheerfully admitted he had
been so styled and It is one of the reasons
why he Is trying to get his hands on 1128,-
000 he didn't make because he waa tat
tooed. He told more about how the tinea
closed In on him and how they reached
out beyond the Omaha market to other
cities and tripped him up there; how the
markets were practically closed against
him and his firm forced Into dealing In
"futures" and detailed, the refusal of a
St. Louis commission firm to do business
with him, preferring to take this course
rather than "Jeopardise all the other busi
ness they got out of Nebraska." Part of
the morning was taken up showing the ex
pense and trouble he had been put to com
batting the so-called trust.
In the afternoon Mr. Worrall remarked
that the members of the association op
posed 4 grain market In Omaha and
openly preferred no cash market nearer
than New York City, as a matter of profits
was Involved. He also gave a great deal
of other testimony and finished his deposi
tion after taking several days to do it. Ills
partner, Charles T. Peavey, will start on
his deposition this morning.
Barred from Larscer Business.
"Had there been no bars against you In
the purchasing of grain from dealers In
Nebraska and from the selling of grain to
the receivers In the market of the United
States, what is the fact as to whether or
not you could have purchased, paid for and
disposed of more grain than you did?"
asked Attorney F. S. Howell.
"We would have purchased and disposed
of a great deal mora than we did," was
"Why didn't you purchase more grain
than you did?'"
"As I stated before, we couldn't sell It for
as good a price as others, therefore wo
didn't want to take the chances on loss."
"Do you know why you couldn't get as
good prices as others for grain that you
were deprived from buying?"
"It was on account of the combination
that was set against ua. Secretary Miller
of the Nebraska Grain Dealers' associa
tion told some members of the association
that Tom (meaning Worrall) had been tat
tooed a long time ago. Mr. Ewert told me
In hla own office at Lincoln that this was
tha language that Mr. Miller used In talk
ing to him about the matter, and furthor
made the statement that the word had
been passed along the line not to do busi
ness with us. We wanted to sell to ex
porters on Omaha Inspection, but they did
not bid us. All these receiving dealers were
"What other overtures did you have In
Omaha and on the Omaha market to dis
pose of your grain, so far as these individ
ual parties were concerned?"
"If during that time you had grain on
hand to dispose of, what method did you
resort to and were you compelled to resort
to to dispose of It?"
Cash Market Closed to Him.
"We had to sell the future and consign to
some commission firms that didn't bid, but
would handle It as a consignment when It
got there. The cash market was practi
cally closed to us. This caused us to lose
money as we could not get as much out of
our corn by handling it that way as we
would If we had been able to have sold it
The witness said F. 8. Cowglll of the
TransmlsiiUalppi Grain company, E. 8.
Westbrooke of tha Westbrooke-Olbbons
company, N. B. Updike of the Updike
Grain company, E. P. Peck and Mr. Hall
hot the Hall-Uuker Oraln company of Kan
sas City Joined to "plug up" a deal against
the Worrall company with Chicago firms;
that Hall's firm is a regular one, but Hall
Is not a member of the Nebraska Grain
Dealers' association, according to his own
statement. That the Kansas City Grain ex
change has a rule against any member of
It belonging to any grain dealers' associa
tion, yet they "always affiliated and worked
with" the association, though they could
not be members of any grain organisation,
l.rttrrs from Association.
Regarding the Brlnson-Wagner company
of St. Louis, who solicited shipments In
Nebraska through P. A. Bryant, witness
"I received complaint from them con
cerning our business and in September,
ll4, went down to them. I waa told
the Arm had received Utters from some
on tn connection wita the Nebraska asso
ciation concerning our attitude. The Brin
son-Wagner company had not been as
friendly and ss eager and enxlous to have
our business as at first. We noticed ar
cording to market reports that they didn't
get as much by a half to three-quarters of
a cent for our stuff as what other grain
sold for at thesnme time. The firm said
that the market wasn't very good and we
had been unfortunate in having our stuff
get in there on certain days when there
was a big line of stuff, and they hoped it
would be better next time.
"I stated my attitude and was told they
couldn't afford to Jeopardise all the busi
ness they had In Nebraska by simply tak
ing mine. They did not solicit business or
bid for It after that."
So Tronble Since Snlt.
Mr. Worrall testified that since his suit
waa started he has had no trouble In get
ting an outlet for his grain at the regular
markets of the country; also that the firm
was being allowed to transfer some cars on
the Rock Island terminals since the suit
was begun. The agreement with the Rock
Island for transferring was a verbal one.
Witness said he understood Senator Mil
lard Is a stockholder In the Updike Grain
company, one of the defendants In the suit.
WITTE IS FOR PEACE
(Continued from First Page.)
the Associated Press that ha had not re
ceived his appointment to the peace com
mission though he expected to accompany
the peace plenipotentiaries to Washington.
Since M. Wltte's appointment as chief plen
ipotentiary M. Routkowskl has been
sounded by the government and has signi
fied his willingness to act. M. Routkowskl
Japan has not yet Intimated its terms
and the reports of Its alleged terms are
generally speculation. Hints have been
dropped by Russia . from time to time
through British and other sources, but
nothing positive has yet been proposed and
we have been informed that Japan will lay
definite propositions only before the Wash
ington conference. The Japanese have
great confidence in M. Wltte and M. Wltte
has great admiration for them. The per
sonnel of Russia's commission should con
vince the Japanse that peace depends on the
reasonableness of their terms. I believe
Russia's acceptance of peace proposals is
a greater show of strength than a continu
ation of the struggle for the sake of pride.
Ending the war and turning its attention
to Internal Improvement and the develop
ment of Its Industries will enhance the
pfestlge of Russia more than a continuation
of the conflict until Japan is finally over
come. M. Routkowskl said he thought the ar
rangements tor a RUsslan loan would
probably be made In Paris ' prior to M.
Wltte s departure from that city.

WILLIAMSON ON THE STAND
Oregon Gongreiimtn Accused of Compiracj
Testifiee in Hn Own Behalf.
MAKES GENERAL DENIAL OF CHARGES
Says He Was Not la Prlnevllle in
July, but Is Not So Certain
When Confronted by
PORTLAND, Ore., July 17. Congressman
John Newton Williamson was on the wit
ness stand In the United States circuit
court In his own behalf today. The de
fense has contended that Williamson was
at Prlnevllle for a short time in July, 1!12.
and when the same thing was affirmed on
the stand by Williamson today he was
confronted by District Attorney Heney
with the register of the Polndexter hotel,
in which, under date of June IB, 1902, was
found the singnature, "John N. William
son." The congressman said the signature
wns not his own, but he admitted that the
word "Prlnevllle," following his namo, ap
peared to be In his writing. Moreover, be
was not prepared to swear that ha was not
In Prlnevllle at that time.
This point fits In with the theory of the
government that Williamson was In Prlne
vlllo two weeks before the filings were
made; that there was a perfect under
standing between the defendants; that he
arranged with his wife to file and that he
then went back to The Dalles and negoti
ated a loan to make payment on the claims,
and caused his wife to file them shortly
after his departure.
Letter to Dinger Hermann.
Mr. Heney offered In evidence a letter
from Congressman Williamson to Bluger
Hermann, then commissioner of the general
land office. In which he sought to Influence
the commissioner to enlarge the Blue
Mountain forest reserve so as to furnish
lands for a further extension of their
sheep range and to crowd out the cattle
men gracing in that district. Tho defense
objected to the letter and the court ruled
against Its admission.
In testifying In his own behalf, the con
gressman from the Second district merely
entered a general denial of the allegation
of the government and on two occasions.
In answer to questions by his counsel, de
clared that he had no part In or knowledge
of any conspiracy to suborn perjury, and
that he knew of no violation of the law.
He denied having seen J wo of the entry
men who have appeared against him until
Just recently, and at no time before the
Character of Defendants,
The defense Introduced the testimony of
a few witnesses to show the good reputa
tion of the defendant and hod called
another, when Judge Do Haven asked Mr.
Heney If the government Intended to of
fer any evidence counter to this. The dis
trict attorney answered in the negative.
Judge De Haven then ruled that no moro
witnesses would be heard, on the question
of reputation. The defense protested, but
the court would not yield. Judge De Haven
said that Inasmuch as the government was
not going to try to prove a bad reputation,
he would Instruct the Jury that a good rep
utation of the defendant had been estab
lished. The defense was not satisfied and offered
to show that they would call about twenty
witnesses, among them Senator Fulton,
Circuit Judges Ellis and Bradshaw and a
number of prominent Portland people to
testify to his good reputation. The court
gave them leave to make the record show
as they, wished.
The government will have but little tes
timony to offer In rebuttal.
PILGRIMS VISIT NEW YORK
Hundred Thousand Italians Take Part
tn Celebration of Feast of Our
Lady of Monnt Carmel.
NEW YORK, July 17.-More than 100.000
Italians today congregated beween One
Hundred and Fourth and One Hundred and
Slxteehth streets, the "Little Italy" of New
York, to celebrate the feast of Our Lady
of Mount Carmel. They came from as
far east as Boston and as far west as
Pittsburg. From thirty miles around New
York, Italians came on foot, many of
them barefoot as a still greater penance.
All day was spent In semi-religious fes
tivities. About the colony were scattered
altars of wood and tinsel, before which
Italians knelt In the streets, and on which
many of them laid wax reproductions of
fingers, limbs or other parts of the body,
with their prayers to the saints who heal.
The rear end of the long street parade
was made up of barefoot women and chil

EIGHTY AND STILL YOUNG
Judge Gaslln of Kearney a s He la a
Better Man Than
Judge Gaslln of Kearney, one of Ne
braska's pioneer Judges and cttlsens who
has passed his eightieth milestone. Is In
the city, hale and hearty, and apparently
as he says, "just as young as he use to
"Talk about growing old," says the Judge,
"I have not thought about getting old yet.
I am a young man. I can do more business
now than ever."
He discusses matters of Interest with as
much xest as ever and tells many quaint
tales of early days and when he was on
"Why, he says, I can take your courts
here today In Douglas county and do all
the business myself and spend half of the
time away at pleasure resorts. There used
to be very few appeals from my court, not
nearly so many as tha way they run them
1 see you have been having some libel
cases here. People going Into court to get
vindicated. 1 think Judge Slabaugh did thi
right thing to come right back at 'em with
a sledge hammer. Pay 'em oft in their own
coin, and he did It up brown. Why, once
when I was on the bench I had a libel case
tried before me. A fellow wanted $10,000 for
defamation of character. The case was
tried, submitted to a Jury, a verdict re
turned, the clerk handed me the verdict
I looked at It, the verdict waa for $5, but
I mistook the $5 for $500. I Immediately, In
as emphatic a manner as I could, said that
verdict could not stand In my court. I did
not think it was worth it. I knew that
man. It was too much. I was here Inter
rupted by the clerk, who showed me It was
for $5 Instead of $500. 'Oh, said I, 'that is
altogether different. I thought It was $i00.
I see it is for $5. That Is more like It. I
think that Is about what it Is worth. That
vej-dlct will stand.' And It stood."
The Judge says "th's graft business Is
getting to be an Intolerable nuisance." He
approves of President Roosevelt's policy
and the good work he Is doing and says
"With LaFolIette. Folk and last, but not
least, Tom Lawson, knocking h 1 out of
'em, will have a tendency to make some
men honest who have not been working at
that business tor some time."
