' commander of the French expeditionary

which number Is considered to be sufficient
to insure the protection of the town, unless
the unexpected happens, for which emer
gency further reinforcements are ready to
embark for Morocco. It is stated hat as
a result of the cabinet conference and ex
changes of views with Premier Clemen
ceau, who Is at Maricnbad, where he met
King Edward, tha government remains
firm in carrying out Us program, which,
it is reiterated, Is not one of conquest.
A correspondent of the Matin at Casa
blanca says the beslgers are now divided
Into three camps, the smallest of which
contains 4,000 men. General Drude, In an
interview, declared It was Impossible to

partment affirms that each Arab is pro
vided with from M0 to 400 rounds of rifle

PHILADELPHIA. Aug. 22.-A special
frofi Johnstown, Pa., says James M. Shu
maker, former superintendent of public
buildings and grounds at Harrlsburg, who
Is Implicated by the reports of the carltol
Investigation commission, has declared that
he will make full confession of all he
knows In connection with the capltol scan
dal. He claims that the manipulation of
funds was engineered by a high official of
the state at Harrlsburg to cover up a
shortage In the state treasury.
Shumaker lives at Johnstown and when
he was subpoenaed to appear before the
capltol investigation commission to tell
what he knew he pleaded Illness and re
mained secluded In his house. Now he Is
apparently ready to divulge Important
secrets when the trials begin In September.
Sliumaker's statement given out by one
of his closest personal and political friends
l Is as follows:
I am going on the witness stand to tell
everything. I will not keep back a single
secret, and when I get throuch 1 will show
that a man high in official life at Harrls
burg ought to go to the penitentiary.

HARRISBURG, Pa., Aug. 22. In a tel
ephone conversation, Mr. Shumaker said
the report that he threatened to disclose
he secrets of the capltol scandal and tell
how the profits of the contracts were
used to cover a shortage In the state
treasury were false. "I have nothing
to conceal," he said, "and when the time
comes I will explain in court all my
transactions. Tho only reason I have
not already told my story Is because
I wm 111 and have not had an oppor

few days, leaving the victim as well as
before. The recent death of one of Its vic

-.TntnriRt ilivi nnt flnir In the comlnff trial
of George Mackown. alleged cmbeziler and
firebug, now In Jail In this city. He Is
charged with emboiillng some $15,000 from
the Not th western Felt Shoe company and
then deliberately firing the mK felt
shoe factory to hide his alleged crime.
The llrst. and strongest card, to be played
by tho defense will be an attack upon the
validity of the Indictments. If will be
four years In November since the Indict
ments were drawn and as the statute of
limitations In Iowa Is three years, no new
charges can 'be brought Rgalnst the man.
Falling toget tho Indictments declared
illegal, the"" defense Is depending very
materially upon the Inability of the state
to bring to Iowa the one witness who can
complete the chain of evidence necessary
to prove the allegation of emhexzlement.
This witness resides in New York and Is
a member of the big felt Jobbing firm of
Mtisllner. He came here when the grand
Jury Indicted Mackown and received $135
for his trip. Mr. Chase la banking largely
on the refusal of this witness again to
make this trip and spend a week or more In
Webster City for the small sum of r.35,
especially during so busy a season as
October. Without this witness the chain
of evidence will be lacking, for he endorsed
the draft which Mackown Is alleged to
have cashed In New Tork and appropri
ated to his own use, thereby committing
tho alleged embeixlemcnt.

With suspicions still directed toward the
notorious Bell as the guilty man, Superin
tendent E. L. West of tho Sixth division
of the railway mall service,' after a con
sultation with Postal Clerk Cole of the
train from which the $250,000 was stolen In
three mail pouches, declines to reveal any
thing of the progress of his Investigation
or admit that he believes that great
an amount Is Involved In the robbery.
While admitting the disappearance of tho
three pouches, he and other postal authori
ties are reticent regarding the exact
amoun. Their non-committal attitude Is
acstimed upon orders from the Postofflce
department at Washington. This policy
has strengthened the general belief that
tho amount was as large as originally
stated and that the government has Its
eye upon the robber or robbers.
There is a disposition In some quarters
to Ignore the possibility of any such a
sum a. $L'50.000 being transmitted by regis-
tered mail, and particularly from Denver i "erand of France in the direction of plac
to Chicago, while there might be such j ,n ,he latter country on the same basis

The .contents of a registered ' package
are never known to the postofflce depart-
ment and that under the postal laws the
department will not assume the respon
sibility for a loss exceeding 126. regardless
of the actual value of the contents of
the package, which is known only to the
sender of the package.
Abundant theories are afloat as to how
the pouches may have been stolen and tho
conclusion has now been reached that the
theft occured at the Denver station. Ono
theory among the officials that Is gaining
ground Is that after the pouches had been
loaded onto the truck and properly counted,
the poRtal clerk may have stepped Into the
transfer room for a moment to attach his
signature to the receipt and during this
moment the pouches were abstracted from
the truck. These registered pouches are
all labeled for their respective destinations
and the expert thief onto hi. business
would have no difficulty In selecting the
Omaha and Chicago registered pouches
because of whose small bulk could easily
be hidden In the darkness and confusion of
Money Bound for New York.
CHICAGO. Aug. 22. Postofflce Inspector
Kimball declared today after Investigating
the recent theft of the two mall pouches
on a Burlington train that the stolen
pouches contained matter sent to point,
east of Chicago. He wild that If $250,'V
had been .tolen It must have been cur
rency sent f ror' the Denver bank, to New
York. The Inspector doubted that such an
amount had been taken. He said that
there wa. no mean, of knowing whether
the pouche. contained 25O,00O or $2.50, but
that the amount, whatever It waa, must
have ' been bound for New York.

SCHIFF SAYS WE MUST PAUSE
Country Has Been Proarenxlnw Mnih
More Rapidly Than It.
NEW YORK. Auir. 22.-Jacob H. Schiff.
tho banker, who Is at Bar Hahbor, Me.. Is
quoted in a published Interview on the
financial and business outlook as saying:
To blame the federal administration for
tne auncuiiies m wmcn wa una ourselves
1. both thoughtless and unjust. Even If the
excesses which the great prosperity of re
cent years has had in Its wake had been
permitted to continue unchecked a situation
before long would have developed probably
far more difficult and serious than the
crlxls through which we are now passing.
"ln the first Instance, It Is a reRult of
the tremendous railroad, industrial and
commercial development of the last ten
years, which has broughf about cap
ital requirements largely In excess of the
ability of the country to supply. Europe,
finding Itself ln a similar position, has been
unable tn extend us any credit or to place
at our disposuf surplus fundfl, such as has
been Its wont to Invest so largely In Amer
ican securities In times of depression.
Moreover, It has been to a great extent,
overlooked that the Russian-Japanese war
the San Francisco earthquake have
j . , . ,
destroyed an enornjous amount of wealth
which has sooner or later naa to make It
self felt. Nor has the fact that both Japan
and China have Tlbw entered into competi
tion for the surplus capital of the world
been given sufficient attention. No other
I remedy for tills state of affairs appears to
be possible than at least a temporary ro-
! auction In our activities until the coun
I try's capital and credit facillltles again
