doctors or inspectors. The death list was
again a source of gratification, pointing un

Today completed the tenth week of the.

ber for Drog-heta, and the warm hearted
and redoubtable Dr. Tanner was, when he
abandoned hla profession for political life,
one of the most eminent of the rising gen
eration of surgeons. Mr. John Dillon, as
everybody knows, was intended for the
medical . profession, passed through his
course of lectures and took the degree of
licentiate in the College of Surgeons.
Many stories' are told of the late Dr.
Kevin Jzod O'Doherty. It is said that one
of the judges who tried him for high
treason in 1848 exclaimed in humorous
' "Heaven! How could a man with a name
like that help being a rebel?"
When Dr. tJ'Doherty stcod for the first
time as parliamentary candidate for Bris
bane he was called away on the evening
of polling day to an urgent case Some dis
tance outside the city. On his return he
met some horsemen comina; from Brisbane.
In response to his inquiry an to the latest
new from the polling places and the ques
tion "who's In?" he received the gratifying
if somewhat ungracious reply:
"That damned old rebel, O'Doherty."
Three Electrical Companies Close the
Gates Against 83,000 Work-
BERLIN, Sept. 30.-A lockout in three of
the greatest electrical companies In Berlin
I began this afternoon. It affects all the fac
tories of the Allgeinelne, the Siemens
Ilalske and the Slemens-Shuckert com
panies except one lamp factory, and throws
about 33,000 workmen out of employment.
As yet the trouble has not affected the
entire electrical industry, but It shows signs
of spreading. The employes of the Berlin
electrical works, which generates nearly all
the electricity consumed for power and
traction purposes In Berlin, met this even
ing to consider a sympathetic strike, but
deferred action until Sunday night In order
to await the result of a conference to be
held Sunday morning between the three
companies affected and the employes. This
conference will be presided over by Herr
von Schults, president of the government
arbitration bureau, but will have no official
character, as the companies refuse to par
ticipate in the appeal for arbitration. They
agreed, however, to meet the labor repre
sentatives In conference with Herr von
Schults presiding. He is an expert in set
tling labor difficulties and therefore it is
hoped he will succeed In stopping the pres
ent trouble.

Says City aad CoaaTty OSBeee Are
Honeycombed with Corraotloa
aad Vice Is Itegnlarly
MILWAUKEE, Sept. JO.-Comollus L.
Corcoran, the president of the eom
mnn council of this city, together with
a former alderman and two private citizen,
were Indicted by the grand Jury In Its nnal
sitting, which ended tonight at 10 o'clock.
Corcoran In th only capias Issued for his
arrest Is eharged with selling hay and oats
to the city, which Is a violation of a city
statute which states that no officeholder
shall enter Into a contract to sell goods of
any kind to the city. Frank C. Klode,
president of a local furniture company I
which sold furniture to the county, Is In
dicted on a charge of perjury. William
Murphy, a former alderman, ia charred
with bribery and Fred C. Schults, a re
porter, with bribery. The grand Jury rec
ommended the calling of grand Juries
The number of indictments returned In
the final sitting was twenty-four, Involving
four persons, as follows; ,
Cornelius L. Corcoran, president of the
Common council, twenty counts.
Fred C. Schults, newspaper reporter, one
Indictment, bribery
Frank C. Klode, president of a local fur.
nitnre-company, one Indictment, perjury.
William Murphy, former alderman, two
indictments, perjury.
Vice and Crime Organised.
The total number of Indictments returned
since th Jury convened. Including to
night's batch, will approximate nearly 150
and will affect about forty individuals. In
Its report on the tabors of the summer ths
grand Jury took occasion to say that Its In
vestigation had developed a most surprising
state of affairs, "vice and crime being reg
ularly organised and fostered." The report
Wa doubt if one cltiien In 1,000 knows the
corrupt ways In which the affairs of this
community have been conducted. The ef
fort fully to expose these conditions has
been opposed by corrupt interest and sys.
tematlc resistance of power In efforts to
conceal the truth and encourage crime. tVe
have been hampered by the efforts of wit
nesses to conceal the facts and in many of
these instances It haa been apparent that
the witness was testifying falBely. Our
observations regarding the vice and crime
of perjury Is such that we must charac
terise It as nothing short of outrageous.
Officers Charge Illegal Fees.
The report states that the administration
of the sheriff's office during the last six
years has been Investigated and that it has
been found that after that office was placed
on a salary basis a system of fee taking
grew up at variance within the meaning of
the statute. It recommends that this fee
taking be still further scrutinized and that
th county board take steps to stop this
form of grafting. Many ways tn which th
sheriff's office profits from these fees are
mentioned. Bribery, the report says, Is an
everyday affair. County offices should be
Investigated. The county clerk should not
get fees, but does, and th practice should
be stopped at once.
Th recent raid upon gambling houses
and prosecution of the keepers and Inmates
thereof by the district attorney's office dis
closes that In the city of Milwaukee there
have been for years at least eight fully
equipped wide open gambling houses. The
Investigation discloses, the report says, that
the eight gambling houses raided are per
mitted in the very heart of the city and
without Interference tb conduct common
games of faro, roulette, craps' and poker,
while other gamblers who sought to start
such games In their places Of business were
promptly raided by the police. The Jury's
report says that since 'the starting of the
Investigation of affairs in county and city
in 1903 there has-been a noticeable decline
In "grafting" and other corruptness. Th
Jury recommends that grand Juries be sum
moned periodically to Investigate affairs in
county and city.
