INDIANAPOLIS, Sept. ".-Thomas Tag
gart, chairman of the national democratic
committee, left Indianapolis last night for
New York. He would not discuss the
nature of the business, but soma of his
friends are Inclined to the belief that he
has been summoned to testify before the
legislative committee which is Investigating
the Insurance conditions In New York rela
tive to the alleged contributions to the
national democratic campaign fund.
NEW YORK. Sept. 21.-Cha!rman Tag
gart of the democratic national committee
arrived In New York today from Indian
apolis. He denied the statement made .by
President McCall of the New York Life
before the Insurance Investigation commit
tee that the democratic national committee
had solicited money for the democratic
fund from that company.
'No member of the committee or any
agent ever asked Mr. McCall of the New
York Life for a dollar," he said.
Mr. Taggart added: "Neither the demo.
cratlc national committee or any author
lied representatives of the committee ever
asked a dollar contribution to the fund
from any other Insurance corporation."
He said he did not come, to New York to
testify before the Insurance Investigating

NEW YORK. 8ept. a. (Special Tele
gram.) The ethics controlling the forma
tion of underwriting syndicates, are being
extensively discussed In connection with
the testimony given the legislative Investi
gating committee. It Is the consensus of
opinion among those best qualified to judge
that the record of the Mutual Life shows:
First, that Its participation In such syndi
cates was amply justified by financial
usages throughout the Civilised world; sec
ond, that the results of such participation
have Inured to the benefit and profit of Its
policy holders; third, that the occasional
participation of some of the company's
trustees in such syndicates was a source of
proportionate profit to the company. The
testimony likewise proved that the Mutual
Life has never entered into any Joint ac
counts with bankers or brokers wherein
profits on purchases or sales were divided.

peace In the columns of the local papers
are not so frequent as they were some time

ten of which were In Tokio.
The Asahl remains suspended. It Is

Clyde Fitch Is Improving In his mechan
ics. It Is still possible for him to Im
prove In other directions, but he has suc
ceeded In making a play that hangs to
gether, of which each succeeding act Is
the complement of whst has gone before.
nd of telling a story that Is at least co
herent, and with certain elements of plaus
ibility behind it. Mr. Fitch has long been
nown as a capable constructor of situa
tions, but for the most part he has con
ducted them separately, so that when put
together the joints were plainly visible,
even allowing the light to shine through
occasionally. Not so "The Woman In the
Case." This piece Is very well carpen
tered, and proceeds smoothly along Its
course from its characteristic opening to
Its characteristic ending, two good Fitch
acts leading up to the most powerful in
dramatic sense of any he has yet Se
ised. The fourth act Is the Inevitable
ntl-cllmax, without which no American-
built play seems complete. It Is suffl-
lent to say that Mr. Fitch's people are
the superficially smart folks he has made
so well known to hs public. With two ex
ceptions. Mrs. Rolfe and Claire Foster
might have been drawn from life. At any
rale the one character so nicely opposes
the other that the balance between them
Is perfect, and their development evinces
n understanding of human nature the
uthor has not generally been credited
with. The great success of the play from
every point may be understood after seeing
Miss Walsh is more happily situated In
one way in this than has been her experi
ence. She has the "happy ending" hitherto
denied her, and she is given a chance to
work out the destiny of a true-hearted,
clean-minded woman. She Is required to
pit her wits against those of a wicked
woman, versed in the ways of the world
and shrewd with that preternatural under-
tandlng that la part of the equipment of
the man or woman who lives on the folly
of others. Miss Walsh leads splendidly up
to the climax of the play, unfolding a fine
conception of the wife whose faith In her
husband spurs her on to entrap her ad
versary and wring from her the truth that
shall free the man who is falsely accused
f the murder of his dear friend. Deftly,
persistently, relentlessly, she plies her
questions, never losing sight of the goal
she has In sight, yet not at any point seem
ing to care for more than a cursory ac
count oT the crime; coarsely flattering the
woman she loathes and yet whom she must
beslaver In order to Induce her to proceed
with her drunken boasting and maudlin
recital until sh has possession of the
facts, and then her triumph. And col
lapse. In this Miss Walsh has by her per
sonality lifted an almost commonplace
situation to the plane of artistic achieve
ment. Nothing a.he has ever done, save.

serves to be praised with Miss Walsh for
the success of the play.
The compnny Is a strong organization In
every way. Not a character but is finely
done, and each !s most essential to the
rounding out of the story. Mr. Fitch
doesn't overlook his opportunities to let
go Borne cynical shots at the public at

effective manner. As the play was staged

and other generations with memories that
they would like to charm back to reality If
they could. Result. Immense audiences to
see th revival, which Is In a brand new
dress, with a vanlnnatlon of modern fan

tacular display of gorgeous scenery, a col
lection of mechanical dvl?es furnishing
endless surprises snd defying description, a
small comic circus with the menagerie and
a "great moral lesson." These Ingredients
are stirred together and well mixed. The
house, Is either howling with laughter,
awed Into respectful silence or soothed snd

The pay train, consisting of a locomotive
and one coach, was going west to pay the
men along the division. The combination
train, composed of locomotive, combination
coaches and two passenger cars, was com
lng from the west. The curve was a sharp
one snd was flanked by a. heavy clump
of trees. Amole Jumped from his en trine
and landed at the foot of a twenty-flve-foot
embankment. McClesry was found on his
engine with the whistle cord In his hand,
It having been pulled clear off the ma
chine and all the brakes on the train set.
The pay car contained about $50,000 In
checks, which were scattered about the
tracks. The checks were picked up by
trainmen and turned over to John W.
Wetsel, attorney for the company at Car
lisle. Officials of the company here say
the accident was probably due to a mis
understanding of orders.
He Replies to the Personal Aapersloas
of Manager Lane of the Tele

The Nebraska Telephone people seem to
be disturbed at the prospect that someone
else may make a little money. I do not

troversy. Mr. Hunt Is not the Issue, nor
any of his associates. The Issue Is simply
this: What benefit would an Independent
telephone compnny be to the working men
and the mercantile class of Omaha? To
the working man It would, mean additional
work In the construction of buildings, con
duits and pole lines and the employment of
a large number of permanent operatives
To the mercantile class it would bring

possible to consolidate with the Bell com
pany, rates could not be restored to pres
ent figures. Once rates are reduced they
are red tired for good.
Mr. Lane says: "Ask the people of Min
neapolis and St. Paul or other cities where
two telephone companies have existed and
they will tell you that more than one tele
phone company should not be permitted to
do business In any city." We have asked
them, and the farts speak for themselves
In reply. The Independent companies have
more subscribers than the Bell companies.
Is not this a pretty good endorsement?
This Is a purely business proposition for
Omaha and hai nothing to do with person
alities. If we are willing to pay the ex
penses of a special election there Is no ex
cuse for the council to refuse submission
of the question to the people. If we sre
willing to spend $1,600,000 In Omaha to prove
our claims we should be allowed to do so;
that Is all there Is to It. We are asking
for nothing from the people, but are of
fering them many benefits.
Mr. Lane Is not careful of his facts.
There was no agreement to sell out last
year and there Is no agreement to sell out
this yesr. On the contrary, we hare agreed
not to sell out.
