President McCall Every Year
tompialn Expead Larue
to Hrad On Holdap
NEW YORK. Oct. 4 That John R. Hcge
man, president of the Metropolitan Life In
surance company, borrowed IfiO.OO from the
Now York Life Insurance company at IVi
per cent Interest, a rate below the mar
ket rate, was brought out In the lasurance
investigation last week, but today Presi
dent John A. McCall of the New York
Life Insurance company testified that he In
turn borrowed I75.O0U from the Metropolitan
at the same rate. This was In January,
1WC; the loan wii renewed in January,
1904, and ran until March, 1905, when the
rate of interest was advanced to 2 per
cent, at which rate It Is still running:.
Mr. McCall testified that he was a di
rector of the Metropolitan Life Insurance
company, but not a stockholder. The fact
of his being a director, Mr. McCall contin
ued, did not deter him' from procuring a
loan at as low a rate of Interest as possi
ble when It was to his Interest to do so.
Cancelled Checks Dtaapper.
Somewhat of a sensation was caused in
the late hours of today's session of the leg
islative committee which is Investigating
the methods of life Insurance companies,
when Nell F.' Towner of Albany was called
to the stand and disclaimed any knowledge
of the whereabouts of cancelled checks of
Judge Andrew Hamilton of Albany. Mr.
Towner testi..e: that he was associated
with Judge Hamilton In the practice of
law In Albany. The Hamilton account was
again under Investigation and Mr. McCall
had been excut,ed for a few minutes while
Mr. Towner took the stand.
Mr. Towner testified that he made de
posits for Judge Hamilton, but not while
the latter was In Europe. He had taken
some cancelled checks from the Albany
Trust company early In September and
had thrown them Into a drawer In Judge
Hamilton's desk. He had no occasion to
look at them again until last week, when
he received the subpoena to appear be
fore the committee. He was asked to bring
these checks with him, but when he looked
for them they were gone. He had no
knowledge, ha declared, of where they
could have gone or who could have taken
them, .Pressed by M,r. Hughes, he said al-,
most anybody had access to the drawer
In which the checks were placed.
Mr. McCall, resuming, was asked about a
deposit to the credit of Judge Hamilton of
tlfS.OU on September 1, 1905.
Mr. McCall said the New York Life In
surance company had aid Mr. Hamilton
no money, but suggested that part of It
might have come from the state control
ler's office by reason of an assignment of
tax moneys which would come to the
Judge by reason of his securing the repeal
of the tax law, which relieved the New
York Life from the payment of taxes.
Judge Hamilton was to have one-third of
the amount that would rebate to the com
pany, a sum of 272,000, netting Mr. Hamil
ton about $90,000.
MeCall'a BrlatlTea Favored.
Another Interesting point was brought
out by Mr. Hughes Just before the close.
Edwin F. Devlin, real estate manager for
the New York Life Insurance company,
was called to continue his testimony of
last week relating to the real estate values
of the company's properties In this country
and abroad. Mr. Devlin had had to con
sult the records and he presented a num
ber of transcripts of the records. It de
veloped that the New York Life had ac
quired by foreclosure an apartment house
In one of the most desirable residential
sections of this city, and the cost, with
Improvements deemed necessary, was $31,
66. The Income from this property was
found to be .03 per cent on the investment.
Among the Improvements was the throw
lug two apartments Into one of nine rooms
with baths. These were rented for 11.500
and Jl.ftX) a year. It then developed that
four of the tenants were tfu? Immediate
family of Presiden.t MrCall. three sons and
a son-in-law. Mr. Devlin was asked who
fixed the rental of these properties and he
said he discussed It with Mr. MrCall.
Mr. McCall enlivened the day's proceed
ings further when he said there was no
record on the bonks of the New York Life
Insurance company of the JlOo.rtin paid the
republican national committee for contri
butions to presidential campaigns. While
he had no personal knowledge that the
motley was paid, he assumed It was be
cause he had told the treasurer to make
these payments.
Earlier in the day Mr. MrCall. In retail
ing the legislation work of Judge Hamilton
and the counsel he employed, denied any
knowledge of the legislative pool which
was disclosed in the examination of Al
fred W. Maine, auditor of the Eu.uit.ible
Life Assurance society, last week.
Met all C harges llluekninll.
Mr. McCall jn thla question made the
startling Information that three-quarteis of
the hills affecting life Insurance companies
were In the nature of blackmail. The offi
cers of the company were worried at lh-
beginning f each year, he said, by the
proposal of laws that would hamper their
companies, and these officers "really
trembled at what hy would have to en
dure the first six months of each year."
While Mr. Hughes was engaged In look
ing up some document. Chairman Arm
strong took the opportunity to ask Mr.
Met all if he hsd ever glvn any thought
as to the femlblltty of a standaid policy
that could be written by all companhs.
Mr. M.t'all said he hud, and he thought
some such policy would be a good thing.
Rufus F. Weeks, actuary and second vice
president of the New York Life Insurance
company, was another altness today. He
went Into the technical description of the
various forms of policies, the tables upon
which the cost of life Insurance Is com
puted and various other computations of
Ills department.
The committee adjourned until tomorrow
morning, with Mr. Devlin still explaining
the real estate holdings of the company.

who testified before the Interstate Com
merce committee today regarding freight
rates on live stock and live stock nroHneta
from Missouri river points to Chicago. As
an Illustration of the alleged Inconnlnf enev
of rates charged by the railroads Tasker
testified that on one occasion he shipped a
lierd or cattle rrom points In northwestern
Wisconsin to Chicago by way of South
St. Paul at a much less freight rate thnn
he could hove shipped the stock direct to
Chicago. The tariff from the points where
he shipped In Wisconsin to Chicago was 3
cents a hundred. Ry shipping to South
St. Paul and thence to Chicago he was
able to obtain a rate of 1514 cents per
hundred pounds, although the distance the
commodity had to be transported was
about 3u0 miles farther than by the direct
"How did you manage to get that rate for
your cattle by way of South St. Paul?"
inquired Attorney Seaverns of the Chicago
Great Western railroad.
"By through billing. I suppose. I ar
ranged with a live stock commission
dealer In 8outh St. Paul to have It done
for me," replied the w linens.
"You knew when you did that through
the commission house men that the terri
tory from which you shipped was outside
the belt from which that through rate by
way of South St. Paul was allowed by the
railroads, did you not?" asked the at
torney. "Yes, I did."
"That low proportionate rate between
South St. Paul and Chicago was only In
tended for cattle shipments consigned to
Chicago from points in Montana tt.. r
'kotas and Minnesota, and you knew It. did
you notr asked the railroad attorney
"Then, as a matter of fact, you entered
Into a conspiracy with the commission men
to manipulate the billing so that cattle re
ceived In South St. Tuul from western
points and wild there would appear to have
been shipped through to Chicago, while
your cattle were substituted under the
pretense that they were really tho animals
shipped through?"
"1 suppose that was the way it was
done. I understood the sums thing had
been done before."
"Is that the way you usually do busi

WASHINGTON. Oct. 4 ."President
Roosevelt Is dead in earnest on the subject
of railroad rate legislation and Is Just as
determined as ever that legislative regula
tions shall be enacted looking to federal
supervision of the freight rate situation,"
Thla statement was made by Representa
tive Townsend of Michigan, one of the
authors of the so-called Eseh -Town send
railroad rate bill.
Representative Townsend called today to
talk over te general subject with the
president and of the necessity for the mak
ing of changes in the measure which he
and Mr. Esch proposed last winter. Mr.
Townsend did not have opportunity to go
fully Into the subject with the president
today, but the president requested him to
call again tomorrow.
"I have no authority to represent the
president's views as to railroad rates."
said Mr. Townsend. "but I can say that he
entertains now the same views and princi
ples he expressed In his message last De
cember. The crux of the whole matter Is
not that the commission should fix rates,
but that It should have the power to
substitute a reasonable rate for one found
on Investigation to bo unjust. Without
such authority the evils complained of
could not be reached."
"Have any suggestions been made of
changes In the Eech-Townsend measure?"
Changes May Re Made..
"Some changes may be made," replied
Mr. Townsend. "but they will be for the
purpose of making the bill clearer on cer
tain points. It Is Intended, of course, to
include In the regulations private cars,
refrigerator cars and terminal charges. We
thought they were covered by our meas
ure, but In order that there may be no
question about them they will be Included
in the bill In a definite way. One thing is
quite certain: There will be no narrowing
of the scope of the bill no modification of
the principles Involved."
Mr. Townsend said It was expected that
the senate committee on Interstate com
merce would prepare and report a measure
to regulate railroad freight rates. While
he did not have a definite Idea as to the
scope of the senate measure he regarded
it as doubtful whether the members of the
senate committee would agree with Sena
tor Foraker that the proposition Involved
only a question of methods.
Interest In Ohio Campaign.
Senator Dick, chairman of the Ohio re
publican executive committee, had a con
ference with President Roosevelt today

in Ohio during the campaign and it has
lieen agreed tentatively that Secretaries

Will Save a Million a Year.
President Roosevelt had a talk today
with Representative Charles B. Land is of
Indiana on the work of the committee
which Is to Investigate the conditions in

of the commission are said to believe It
easily possible to reduce the expenses of
the government printing office at least
$1,000,000 a year.

Famous Kidnaper Wlrea that If
Sheriff Power tioea After Him
He Will Not Offer
Edmard A. Cndahy Wednesday gave out
a signed statement touching tho alleged
confession of Crowe, implicating Mr. Cud
ahy's son, in which he says:
"As to the alleged statement of Crowe
that my son was a party to the plot. It Is
so absurd, particularly In the light of his
previous statements, that I can hardly be
lieve he made it. It certainly Is untrue.
"For several years I have made no ef
fort toward securing the arrest of Crowe,
although having hsd two letters sent to me
signed by him admitting that he alone
was guilty of the kidnaping and begging
clemency, stating that he wanted to start
life anew.
"In one of these letters he says: 'I am
guilty of the Cudahy affair. I am to
blame for the whole crime. After it was
over I regretted my act and offered to re
turn $21,nno to Mr. Cudahy. but he refused
to take it, and then I went to South Africa,
where I Joined the rebel army and was
badly wounded, being shot twice. Then I
returned to America, and have repeatedly
tried to make peace with the man I
"I have felt In duty bound to refrain
from agreeing not to prosecute him, be
lieving that this was a matter entirely
within the province of the state authori
ties. "I deplore the continued publicity which
has been given this entire matter, for It
has been a constant source of anxiety and
annoyance to me and to all the members
of my family."
Telegram to Power.
The Hon. P. Crowe who Is expected to
arrive from Butte most any time In charge
of two of Chief Donahue's most trusted
officers, showed a disposition to be very
particular as to who went after him.
Tuesday night Sheriff Power received a
message from the slippery Individual which
"I will come if you come after me, with
out making any fight on extradition.
"Care Butte Evening News."
About the time this message was re
ceived the sheriff received another which
read : '
"Pat Crowe is under arrest here. If
you come personally after him he will
waive requisition. If you don't come he will
fight requisition. JOHN J. QUINN,
Sheriff Silver Bow County."
The telegrams were received at the
sheriff's office during the afternoon and
they were not seen by the sheriff until
last night when called at the office. As
he Is extremely busy entertaining BOO or
600 out-of-town visitors, the sheriff had to
decline the honor of escorting Mr. P.
Crowe back to his old haunts.
Incldently there is hanging pverPat'g
head a complaint filed In the county court
March 20. 1301 In which he, Callahan and
Richard Roe are charged with robbing
Edward Cudahy of $25,000. It Is under
stood that nothing will be done in this
case until after complaint charging him
with shooting Policeman Jackson is
heard. Mr. Cudahy says he will prose
cute Crowe when the time comes.
Pat on n Dead Trail.
Chief of Police Donahue scouts the
idea that Pat Crowe will be able to
make any capital by trying to Implicate
Eddie Cudahy In the kidnapping of him
self. The chief understands that Crowe
Intends to make the Cudahy boy a con
spirator in the famous case, but does not
believe such a coup will be worth the
telegraph toll it cost to send the Infor
mation from Butte.
Nothing further has been heard by Chief
Donahue from the Butte authorities re
garding Mr. Crowe. The next informa
tion that Is awaited with interest Is some
advice from Chief of Detectives Dunn,
who left Tuesday afternoon with Detec
tive Heitfeldt for Butte.
The news of Crowe's capture at Butte
has been a topic of general conversation
around town. The anticipation of seeing
Pat Crowe where he cannot bite anyone
is being felt keenly by many.
Speaking of Crowe Wednesday morning
Chief Donahue said he has only seen
Crowe once In his life, that time being
on May 16, 1900, some months before the
kidnapping, In the hotel of Steve Crowe
at Chicago. As Crowe has changed much
since that time. It Is possible he and Chief
Donahue will need an Introduction when
they meet again. Chief Dunn probably
will do the honors on that occasion.'
Crowe Denies Story.
Bl'TTE, Mont., Oct. 4 Pat Crowe today
admitted that he was in Omaha six weeks
ago and engaged In a pistol duel with the
police, during which an officer was shot.
He says the police fired sixteen shots at
him before he retired, and that he opened
fire to save his own life. He says his
sole object in coming here was to sur
render, believing that he had better give
himself up at a distance from home, so
thst In yielding to extradition he might
make terms favorable to himself with the
Nebraska authorities. He denies absolutely

It was a splendid parade and a
most magnificent crowd that wit
nessed tt. Such remarkable demon
strations can have but one signifi
cance, namely that the people of the.
state and adjecent states from
which niany have come are en
joying unbounded prosperity and
have Immeasurable faith In the fu
ture of Omaha, Nebraska, and the
west. I am glad Indeed, to have tha
pleasure of paying homage to tha
good king, Ak-Sar-Ben XI, ruler of
this grand empire. As I looked Into
those vast seas of faces packed In
and along the thoroughfares I waa
moved with profound admiration and
pride for Nebraska Governor John
if. Mickey.
I think fully 160.000 people viewed
the parade. Chief of Police Dona
hue, who rode at head of procession.
Never before in the history of Ak-Sar-Ben
have so many people turned out to
see a daylight parade. As though making
an effort to make restitution for rough
winds, chilly temperature and clouds full
of raindrops In past years, the weather
behaved beautifully. The air waa clear
and fine and the sun shone brightly.
. Nevertheless - -the July temperature
brought out the home guard strong. Street
car men and other good Judges said they
never had seen non-residenta pour Into
Omaha In such numbers as they did dur
ing the day. The two together made the
streets Impassable at 1 o'clock, and a man
was lucky If he could navigate on tha pave
ment. It was no use trying on the side
walk. Every available Inch waa taken
when the long column that required thirty
minutes to pass a given point went by.
The procession was so long that It lapped
on some of the turns, unexpectedly, and
the rear part had to be delayed so as to
bring the combination out right.
Parade Fine of tha Kind.
As for the parade. It waa a fine one of
Its class. There were no novelties in it.
Civic, military and fraternal were the In
gredients, the same that has been used
for many seasons. The offers, of good
slred cash purses brought out drill and de
gree teams primed their best to win, and
they marched and completed evotutlona with
spirit and dispatch. With a full regiment
of the regular Infantry and two companies
of the signal corps the military end of tha
spectacle did not fall short. Of music thera
was enough. The fire department made
an excellent showing and the customary
hint of the Ak-Sar-Ben Initlatlona and th
Joke behind the gun were not missing.
fiovernar Heads the List. '
Governor Mickey, General T. J. Wlnt, Ad
jutant General Culver of the Nebraska Na
tional Guard and Colonels J. w. Thomas
of Omaha nnd S. A. Mellck of Lincoln of
the governor's staff. Captain Clarence Cul
ver of the Third cavalry at Fort Asslna
boine. Mont.; Lieutenant William B. C'owin
and Major Gray M. Zalinski, Captain Davi
L. Stone and Captain William O. Doan
who were Judges, reviewed the parade front,
a special stand on the south side of Doug
las street between Fourteenth and Fif
teenth. The governor and the other mem
bers of the party declared It waa a fine
turnout and said they were glsd they had
not missed it.
On the reviewing stand In front of tha
city hall Mayor Moores stared tha sun In
the face for a full half hour while the
parade went by. Me showed his military
training by uncovering for the colors and
lifted his hat to the women in the parade
when they passed. With him were Dr.
George L. Miller of the Board of Fire and
Police ConmilJ-sioncrs and a few of his
friends. The other seats on the stand were
taken up by rnuncilmen, city hall officers
and employes and therr friends.
Mass of Humanity.
Across the street tho court house terrace
was a mass of people. A long stand had
been built along the sidewalk. Back of
this spectators grouped themselves on
every foot of ground or available projec
tion. As usual, the Arab patrol of Molla temple
of the Shrlners at St. Joseph made a big
hit with their continuous evolutions.
Twenty-five men. or Just enough, shoulder
to shoulder, to stretch across the pave-'
mem, attired In black tuxedos, black rapa
and red watr.tcnuts, made a pretty sight.
Added to their trimness was their re
markable mobility, and it was no wonder
they drew lots' of spplause.
Orand Marshal Wattles looked well on 4
splendid gray mount, as did Chief of Police
Donahue and the Board of Governors. Flra
chief Halter occupied his seat In the little .
buggy he uses In responding to fires. Half
a doxen engine, hose and hook and ladder
companies sppeared behind lilin, with As
sistant Fire Chief Simpson breaking the
monotony. The newest and best equip
ment, gaily decorated, waa trotted out and
looked tine. The latest steamer, which
liears the name of "Frank E. Moores," had
pictures of 'he mayor conveniently div
