Federal tonrt la Chicago Takes
thirst of Affairs ot A.
Booth A Co.
CHICAGO, Sept. ll.-The fish and oys
ter firm of A. Uooth &. Co. was placed
in the hands of a receiver by Judge
Betlua In the federal district court yester
day. Tho Linen Thread company of New
Voik and Alfred E. Booth of Baltimore
were the complainants named in the pe
tition, and on their plea W. J. Chalmers,
president of the Commercial National De
posits was appointed receiver. His bonds
were fixed at SO.O00 and he was placed
in charge of the firm's affairs at once.
The petition asserts that the liabilities
of the company are $5,600,000 and place
the assets at 18,000.000. The troubles of
the company ara alleged to be due In
a large measure to an Inadequacy of cap
ital, coupled with the financial depreaslon
at last fall. The bill asserts that the
company Is unable to meet its obliga
tions. Coincident with the receivership pro
ceedings an attaihiiient for the funds of
(be company was secured today by an
attorney representing the Glrard National
bank of Philadelphia on a claim for $13,
000. This amount Is alleged to have been
obtained from the bank by means of
fraudulent misrepresentations. In a state
ment made by W, V. Booth, president of
the company, the receivership is de
clared to have been rendered necessary
because, Instead of mortgaging the prop
erty, the company has relied for .funds
upon the sale of Its short-time commercial
paper, som of which it h beta unable
to renew.

DANVILLE, 111.. Sept. 11.-Speaker J.
G. Cannon last night opened the campaign
for re-election to congress In his home
town. Almost his entire address of nearly
two hours was devoted to the labor ques
tion. He paid hia respects to Samuel Go pi
pers, president of the American Federation
of Labor, who spoke here on Labor day
and attacked Mr. Cannon, inviting union
workingmen to vote against him.
Mr. Cannon plainly said he would never
vote In congress for tha boycott and some
other things demanded by Gompers, in
eluding an anti-Injunction law that would
make fish of one and fowl of another.
Mr. Cannon waa greeted by an audience of
6,000. He was escorted from his home to
the theater by the Cannon Escort club, an
organisation that has taken an active part
In every campaign here for twenty years.
Speaker Cannon said In part:
I appeal from Mx. OomDers" sttemniaH
domination of myself and others In con
gress. Especially, I appeal to that great
body of fair-minded men, unionised for
tne bettering or tnelr condition, who would
scorn to ask legislation for themselves dif
ferent from that which applies to all other

Gompers success, the republic Is to be
brought uroder the domination of Mr.
Byan's policies, which I believe to be de
structive to the best Interests of the Ameri
can people. ,
Mr. Cannon then referred to his opponent
Mr. Bell, and noticed that Mr. Bell ap
proved Mr. Gompers in order to gain the
labor leader's support. Mr. Cannon then
turned to hia support of the especial friends
of labor. He pointed out that John Sharp
Williams had said that a party's record
consisted not alone of its platform declare.
tlons, but of Its actions. Mr. Cannon asked
what the democratic party had done for
labor. He said that of the statutes for the
benefit of- labor, the most had been jstssed
when the republicans were in control, lie
cited mar.y labor laws passed by the i
Look to the Record.
If the working man wants ii further

enough to procure satisfactory laws.
Ilryaa and His Heirship.
Mr. Cannon then took up the claim of
Mr. Bryan to the heirship to the political
republican administration. Hu was
amaxed that Mr. Bryan could find any
similarity between himself and President
Roosevelt. He went on to point out the
various great and good tilings that Roose
velt had stalled or finished during hi
administration and pointed out that Bryan
had been opposed to Mr. Roosevelt j on
every issue that had arisen In this coun
try. He said that Mr. Roosevelt had ever
been distinguished by hlj nervous energy
la doing things, while Mr. Bryan had
fought the dragons of his own hallucina
tion as valiantly as any knight of olj
and been aa devoted a crusader as Don
Quixote, but he had never shown any in
herited qualities that would justify bis
. r
claim to be the heir of the direct and
Indomitable Theodore RooHevelt or to the
practical business administration ot tha
republican party.
