PRATT AND MULLANE DEAD
Two More Victims of Illot Started by
Fanatics In Kansas City Die
KANSAS CITY, Mo., Dec. 10.-Two more
names were added today to the list of dead
as a result of Tuesday's battle between re
ligious fanatics and the police here, the
total number of dead now being four.
Shortly before noon today Louis Pratt,
45 years old, the foremost disciple of Jamos
Sharp, died at the General hospital, and
one hour later Michael Mullane, a police
man, succumbed to his wounds at St. Jo
seph's hospital. Policeman Albert O. Dal
bow and Lulu Pratt died immediately after
being shot Tuesday.
Pratt sank Into a state of unconscious
ness late yesterday and efforts to arouse
him were unavailing. His right leg. had
been amputated at ths knee and there
was a bullet lodgod In his' brain. When his
wits and children, confined at police head
quarters, were told of his-death they broke
down completely and were much more af
fected than at the death Of Lulu Fratltwb
days sgo: 1
Mullane suffered himself to be mortally
wounded because hs would not shoot a
woman. According to witnesses he dodged
behind a wagon when Mrs. Sharp attacked
him with a revolver and though she 'con
tinued firing he made no resistance though
he was armed. '
"Boys, I could have killed the woman,
but I wouldn't," he exclaimed as he sank
to the pavement pierced by four bullets.
It developed today that both ' Pratt and
James Sharp, who is now at large, as
sumed the title of "Adam God" when
preaching In separate localities, but Sharp,
as founder of the sect, held the prior claim
to the title. Pratt professed to have the
same divine fire, but in a lessor degree.
The body of Policeman Dalbow was in
terred hers today. : i

CANAL CHARGE FALSE
(Continued from First Page.)
the old Panama Canal company and 77.100,
en francs being plafod ti the credit of
the new Panama t anal company in lnul
elation, and by said bank peld over to saki
liquidators, reepe' lively, pursuant to a
decision of arbitration at l'arls, February
11. IM'2, confirmed by the civil tribunal of
To the senate ormmlHv I stated that
I did not know what distribution of the
fund had been made and that I was in
no way concerned or Interested therein.
This statement by me was true. I had
no pecuniary Interest In the canal and it
waa none of my business, personally ' or
professloinally, who were the stockholders
or bondholders of the company.
Blnce the recent publications 1 have made
inquiries in Paris and am informed that
the distribution of these moneys is a mat
ter of public record, that the amount re
ceived by the liquidator of the old Panama
Canal company has been dlstrbuted by
him as an officer of the court to the
holders of the oMIsttlons of the old com
pany; that those persons appoared In per
son at the office of the liquidator to re
ceipt for the moneys paid to them, that
they numbered 2X2., the lanrest number
of Individuals probably ever appearing in
person on a single business affair and that
the average amount paid was I1S6. The
complete and detailed record of thes pay
ments, torether with tho names and re
ceipts of every person to whom payment
.was made and the amount of such pay
ment, is in tho hands of tne liquidator at
his offices at Rue Btlenne Marcel, Paris,
wlilch is in a prominent and frequented
part of the city, near the Ftoursn, easily
found by anyone desirous of doing so.
Money First Goes to Dank.
As to the funds paid to the new Panama
Canal company that company at the time
of the sale of its property to the United
States went Into liquidation and I am
likewise recently Informed that the distri
bution of Us assets among its shareholders
was made through four leading banks of
Paris, the Credit Lyonnais Boelete Generals,
Comptolr National d'Kscompte de Paris
and Credit Industrie! et Commercial, in
three separate payments (July Id, 1h, Feb
ruary 3, l'Ji8, and June IS, 1!U8). covering a
period of four years and was completed
in June, ISM. This liquidation took place
at the regular offices of the company, 19
Hue l,uis la (J rand. fans, readily found
by anybody who honestly sought to find
them. The facts concerning the liquidation
are a matter of publlo report to the share
holders of the company (this company had
no bond Issues) and were the subject of of
ficial publications from time to time cov
ering a period of four years In the official
papers under the direction of the courts.
The amount so paid to the shareholders of
the new Panama Canal company, as I am
jnrormea by tne liquidators, Is approxi
mately 129.78 francs on each share of the
par value of 10 francs, that is they merely
received back only the capital originally
Invented wtih Interest less than 3 per cent
per annum. I am informed by the liquidat
ors that the shareholders to whom distribu
tion was made numbered 6.7ti. Neither I
nor my . law firm nor any one connected
with me ever owned, directly or Indirectly
any share of stock in the New Panama
Canal company or of the obligations or
securuius oi tne old Panama Canal com
pany, nor ever bought or sold any of the
shares or securities of either one of said
companies nor were directly or indirectly
interested in them.
1 am also noHliive that not a man In nnh-
llc life In America. In or out of coneress.
ever had the least pecuniary lnterebt In the
Panama canal. I do not know nor have
never known of any American citlsen who
lias ever dealt in any shares of the new
Panama Canal comcanv or the shares or
bonds of the old company.
Robinson and Taft.
A further Instance of the unwarranted at
titude of the lndlanaoolls News and of
other Journals repeating the statements, Is
lurmsnea wnn respect to Mr. c. P. Taft
and Mr. Douglas Koblnson. In the same
Issue of the World (October 3, 190S) I said:
ine mention of the names of Mr. Taft
and Mr. Uouglos Robinson Is another evi
dence that this Is a fake story. No member
of the Taft family or Mr. Douglas Kobln
son ever had the remotest connection with
Panama canal, matters, directly or Indi
rectly, and I never say either of them on
this subject before the United States ac
quired the canal. I never saw Mr. Douglas
Koblnson In my life. The names of Caesar
and Napoleon might as well have been used
ror it could not be more impossible. All
this excepr-mhe dragging In -of- new names
was tnresnea out before tne unttea, mates
senate committee by the'late' Senator Mor-
fan. Out of respect for' the dead I refrain
rom comment on that proceeding, but I
feel warranted in saying It was. pursued
with unparalleled energy and skill. It was
however, exploded and refuted by the facts
in the case and ended In complete discomfi
ture. , There is not a word or truin in it
and I would not notice It at this time If It
did not concern others."-
The introduction of these gentlemen in tne
Panama affair is like the creation of a
character in a work of fiction. - They did
not exist In the sense ot naving any rela
tion to the canal matter. Neither of them
ever bad the least pecuniary interest in the
business. It Is a matter or puonc nistory
that the presidentelect never had anv
official connection with the canal until
months after It had been acnuired by this
government. He was In the Philippines as
governor during all the years In question.
Where Records Are Filed.
Eouallv nerverted Is ths fact concerning
the -records and the accounts of the two
companies. They were not delivered to the
United States because they were records
of the companies transactions with which
the United States had no concern. But
as a matter of fart the records and files
of the liquidation of the old company are
in the hands of the liquidator at 60 Rue
Etlenne Marcel, Paris, and those of the
new company, were oa the final payment
in June. 190)1, deposited with the Credit
Lyonnais, Boulevard Des Hillens. to be
preserved in accordance with the French
law for a period of twenty years. That
corporation has the custody of the records
as Is well Known to all parties in Interest.
The whole story of Americans or soma
American syndicate buying up tne 1'anama
canal stock at a low price or any price and
then turning them In upon liquidation at
a prorit is a nction ana a concoction. The
money of the United States went to France
and was distributed to the hundreds of
thousands of foreign owners, none of
whom, so far as I know were Americans.
CITS FOR CRIMINAL LIBEL
Men Who Spread False Reports About
Canal Deal to Be Prosecnted.
WASHINGTON, lee. I0.-"If they can be
reached for criminal libel I shall try to
have them reached," said President Roose
velt, In speaking this afternoon, "about
those Americans who have been guilty with
Infamous falsehoods concerning the prop
erty of the (Panama) canal itself."
It was to the committee of 100 of the
Lakes to the Oulf Deep Waterways asso
ciation, headed by Governor Deneen of Illi
nois, received by the president In the East
Room of the White House, that he made
Governor Deneen had presented a copy of
the resolution adopted by the association
and made a few i remarks, to which the
president replied as follows:
"I have felt as tho governor has so well
put It, that no more important service could
be rendered this country than the building
of the Panama canal, and one thing I am
proud of in connection with the building of
that canal is that there has not been legiti
mate cause for the breath of scandal con
nected with any feature of the proceeding.
We have cause to be ashamed of only one
set of Americans In connection with the
building of the canal and that is of thosa
Americans who have been. guilty of infa
mous falsehood concerning the acquisition
of the property itnd the construction of the
canal Itself. If they can be reached for
criminal libel I shall try to have them
reached. It not, at any rate, all the facts
we know or ever have known are at the
disposal of each and every one of you here.
and of any one In congress or all congress
if they wish to see them."
"Next only in importance from tha phy
slcal standpoint to building the Panama
canal comes the question of developing ths
use of our waterways. That must be done
by the policy of irrigation at the head'
waters up In the arid regions, and. where
you come from, gentlemen. It Is to be done
by making a deep channel from ths gulf
of Mexico to ths great lakes, and ws will
see that that work is dons Just as honestly
Just as efficiently as ths Panama canal
work has been done, and no work could
have been dona from beginning to end mors
honestly or mors efficiently."
EVIDENCE AGAINST STANDARD
Miming Contract Shewing How
" Dnmmy Was t'sed In Hands
NEW TORK, !ee. 10 The missing con
tract of ths Standard Oil company, which
explains the loan made by the corporation
to T. N. Bamsdall of Pittsburg, Is now In
the hands of Prank B. Kf lions, the gov
ernment prosecutor, conducting the gov
ernment's suit to dissolve the Standard
OH company which Is In progress here.
The contract had been demanded by the
government while John D. Archbold was
on the stand recently, and yesterday it
was turned over to Mr. Kellogg by Morris
Rosenthal, after having been obtained in
Pittsburg from the Pittsburg Trust com
pany. The contract. It is said, indicates
the Standard's complete control of the oil
field which Mr. Barnsdall operated. Two
con'racts. In fact, covered the transaction
of the loan of 7,6OO,O0O and the security
given by Mr. Barnsdall was the bulk of ths
stock of the Barnsdall Oil company, mort
gages on cool lands and rights In Okla
noma. These same securities, William A
Rockefeller testified on the witness stand
a year ago, were practically worthless, lit
his opinion. This made Mr. BarnsJall's
property the trust's, and the government
counsel hopes to show that he was thus
practically a dummy furnished with funds
to build up the business of the Standard
The original loan was made by the Stan
dard OH company itself, but the last one,
dated, February, 1907, extending over a
period of seven years, was made by Presl
dent Young of the Prairie Oil and Gas
company, a Standard subsidiary.

"For twenty years, I drank coffee think

"The more coffee I drank, the more
tired and nervous I became until I troke
down entirely. Then I changed my work
from sewing to housework. This gave me
more exercise and was beneficial, but I
kept on drinking coffee thought I could
not do without it. '
"I was so nervous at times that If left
alone I would not go from one room to
another for fear someone ould grab me,
and my little children had to go around
on tiptoe and speak in whispers.
"Finally an sttsck of ths grip weakened
me so my nerves rebelled and the smell
even of coffee was nauseating. Then my
husband prepared some Postum for me,
believing the long use of coffee had
caused my break-down, so that my head
and hands shook like the palsy.
"At first I did not like Postum but I
kept on drinking It snd as we learned how
to make It right according to directions
