We can only point to the past policy of

It can carry there Is no use in either add

in the way of contesting the legality of
the occupation tax I cannot speak. This
is a matter entirely for. the board of di

no public demand to assess an occupation

Duty on Flax Seed
South Dakota Senator . Makes Fight
for Restoration of tha Dingley
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON-. Aug. 4 tPpeclal Tele
gram.) Senator Gamble today mane an ex
tended argument on the drawback provision
a affecting .flaxseed. The house provision
on this matter was the re-enactment of the
Dlngley law, which prohibited the draw
back. This, was disagreed to by the senate
ard a separate provision was passed, pro
hibiting a. drawback . as to wheat! wheat
flour, flaxseed or products, or by-products
of flaxseed.. . Although the provl ms were
substantially Identical and there was noth
It g, as Senator Gamble claimed, of differ
ence between the two; houses, the confer
ence committee had arbitrarily stricken out
both provisions, leaving these products sub
ject to the general drawback provision.
Senators -McCumber and Gamble have
been co-operating in this matter. The states
of both senator are very large producers
of flaxseed and It Is a matter of great Im
portance to three rotes. These two states,
with Minnesota, produce 93 per cent of the
flax crops of the United States. To permit
the Importation Of flaxseed subject to
drawback,' Senator -Gamble contended,
would bo likely to glut the market and
greatly decrease the prices. The crop has
been a most profitable one In the north
west and last year the price was J 1.67. The
1'nlted Strtes, so Senator Gamble con
tended, produces sufficient flaxseed for
domestic consumption, and to admit foreign
flaxeed' Wohld be 'a great injustice to the
northwestern-farmer. He also showed that
as result of the' Dingley law, the produc
tion of flaxseed 'as well as the price, had
greatly increased and that of thirty lin
seed oil milts' In the Ut lted States, twenty
four are located 'in the west. The advan
tage and profit, he asserted, should elimi
nation of the provision prevail, would
Inure solely to the mills operated on the At
lantic seaboard, controlled and operated by
Standard 6il Interests. .The Injustice of the
arbitrary action of .the conference commit
tee, which is, claimed to be an error, was
made clearly apparent, and as a result Sen
ators McCumber and Gamble are assured
of the co-operation of the member of the
conference committee of both houses, and
they have .conference they will be able to
pass a Joint resolution through both houses
correcting the. difficulty and restoring the
by-products or .wheat and wheat flour.

CANNON WILL PUNISH FOES
Insurgents Will Lote Their Good
WILL AIINOUNCE LIST TODAY
Several Mea Who Hitherto Had Good
Assignment Will Flad Thrill
eelres Out la the raid
WASHINGTON. Aug. 4.-Speaker Cannon
la expected to announce hi committee
assignments tomorrow. That they will not
be satisfactory is already Indicated by
gossip heard about the house chamber. The
selection which I expected to cause a great
deal of comment and Incidentally consider
able concern, Js the designation of Repre
sentative Weeks of Massachusetts te be
chairman of the committee on postoffie
It I understood that Mr. Weeks does not
favor the postal savings banks proposition,
and that his attitude with regard to that
legislation which was proposed and recom
mended by George L. Meyer of Massachu
aetta, formerly postmaster general, has had
some Influence with Mr. Cannon In select
ing him for the head of the postofflce com
mittee. Reveral of the Massachusetts delegation
look upon a plan to appoint Mr. Weeks to
the head of the committee as a clever coup
on the part of Senator Crane's followers to
endanger the chances of the opposing fac
tions In the coming senatorial contest In
The fact that Representative Gardner of
New Jersey, who would be entitled to the
chairmanship of the postofflce committee
from the standpoint of rank of service on
that committee, today for the first time
voted with the rulee "insurgents" and the
democrats on the urgent deficiency bill,
wa taken to Indicate that he regards Mr.
Weeks' appointment as assured. Represent
ative Gardner of Massachusetts, who, it is
said, also would be affected by the appoint
ment of Mr. Weeks, because of his affilia
tion with the Lodge forces, Is to lose his
chairmanship of the committee on indus
trial arts and expositions. It was under
stood today that this action would be taken
by the speaker because Mr. Gardner was
one of the leading "Insurgents'.' at the
opening of the present session. Representa
tive Rodenburg of Illinois, it la said, will
succeed Mr. Gardner.
Representative Cooper of Wisconsin, who
was aJso an "Insurgent" against the rules,
may. retain the chairmanship of the com
mittee on insular affairs. It was reported
today that President Taft had Intervened
with Speaker Cannon In his behalf. On the
other hand, It was learned from equally
reliable sources that Representative Fowler
of New Jersey, who was chairman of the
banking and currency committee In the last
session, would lose his committee. The fate
of Representative Davidson of Wisconsin,
another "Insurgent," remains uncertain,
He was chairman of the committee on rail
ways and canals.

agination In Tour Business." The trade
paper published It prematurely and
though President Archibald and a com
mute confiscated the copies of the paper
around the Rome the speaker did not care
to deliver the address.
Analysis of Problem.
In a thorough going analysis of tho
jewelers' problems, Jacob Franks," president,
of the Rockford Watch company, told tlfe
delegates at the' afternoon 'session that
"they must maintain' prices or go to tho
"A luxury;" he said, "the sales of which
are limited as compared to a necessity,
must bear a far larger gross profit than
a necessity, otherwise, it is. not upejn
a logical basis. Xhe trend of times Is ever
advancing. Then why should the Jewelry
trade, of all lines of business, stand still?
The price gentlemen, on that which you
eat and J at which you wear, the rent on
the house In which you live and the labor
which you must purchase has .steadily
advanced In the last ten years, and if your
profits do not advance in a like ratio, you
imply cannot exist.
"The new era in business means or
ganization. Industries of a like nature get
ting together means the elimination of un
just competition means the elimination of
enmity between competitors means rather
that competitors in a like industry join
themseh-ea In an army to meet the common
enemy. We are now upon the threshold
of a new prosperity, the country is In ex
cellent condition, all things point that busi
ness In the fall and winter will at least
be normal, and that the year 1!U0 will usher
in again - a new prosperity period. It Is
time tS get 'into camp' and be prepared to
take advantage of this wave of prosperity
that Is bound to reach us. Your advance
ment Is In your own hands a fixed price,
with a living margin, no deviation and
standardised goods for the exclusive use
of the retail Jeweler. That, gentlemen, la
my opinion of your salvation,"
INDIAN GIVES HIMSELF UP
Shoot Friend and Take Train to
' ' Coanty Heat After Telephon
ABERDEEN. S. D., Aug 4 -(Speclal.)-A
gallon of whisky was the caupe of the
shooting of Thomas Powell, a young half
breed Indian, on the Standing Ruck reser
vation by Robert Gllland, another half
breed, early Sunday morning.
Powell and Gllland had been to the
agency to get their . Issue of beef cattle
and were driving the cattle home. In the
party were two or three other young In
dians. In some manner the redskins had
procured a gallon of liquor and were par
taking of It freely. Powell, under the in
fluence ot the liquor, became Insulting and
abusive and called Gllland a horsethlef and
other namea. Gllland ordered him to stop,
and when Powell refused went to his horse
and got a revolver from the saddle. Fir
ing, a shot in the air Gllland again or
dered Powell to stop, but Powell Instead
started toward him. Then Glllaru fired,
shooting his victim through the abdomen.
Gllland then sprang on his horse and rode
to Thunder Hawk, where he called up
Sheriff Perry of the newly-organized county
of Corson, telling of his crime. Perry
told hlro to go to Morrlstown and give him
self up and wired the railroad to give
Gilland a ticket for Morrlstown. Gllland
took the train and when he got off at
Morrlstown the sheriff was there to meet
him. Gllland was brought to Aberdeen,
where he waived preliminary examination
and waa held by United Stages Commis
sioner William Wallace to await the action
of the federal court. He is confined in the
Brown county Jail here. The Indian agent
at Standing Rock states that both Powell
and Gllland were usually well-behaved,
Powell being especially law-abiding and In
offensive when sober. Th man Introduc

LOOKING BETTER FOR THAW
His Former ; Counsel Explains Some
Alleged Delusions. '
MAY BLACKEN STANFORD WHITE
Alleged Sensational Letter, Bearing:
on III Mode of Life, Are Likely
to Be Head Oat la
WHITE PLAIN'S. N. Y., Aug. 4.-The
state rested in the Thaw cnne today and
from now on It devolves upon Harry K.
Thaw and Ills attorney, Charles Morsnhau
ser, to offset the testimony of the state's
alienists who have sworn without excep
tion under examination by District At
torney Jerome, that Thaw Is still Insane
and would be a menace to the community
if released from the asylum at Matteaw-an.
Dr. Carlos F. Mac Donald waa the last
alienist called by the state. He was fol
lowed by John B. Gleason,. Thaw' original
advisor after, the shooting of White.
Gleason came ta Thaw's aid this after
noon, and cleared up a few old mysteries,
sweeping away some of Thaw's apparent
vagaries upon which Mr. Jerome has
dwelt so jHTslstently. Mr. Gleason'a most
advantageous statement from the prisoner's
standing concerned the dropping of the
law firm of Black, Gruber ft Bonynge and
of I.. L. Delafleld and the engagement of
Delphln M. Delmas as chief counsel for
This had been done at his (Oleason's
order, he said, and waa not done on a
whim of1 Thaw's.
Haa Sensational Letters.
Mr. Gleason. as a lawyer, hope to ehow
that Thaw's attitude toward Stanford
White was not due to delusion, but waa
prompted by what Thaw knew -of White's
practices. Mr. Gleason ' has ' about fifty
letters received from Thaw which may
prove one of the sensations of the hearing
if read tomorrow. Mr. Morschauser tried
to prove the charges against White to
day by reading parte of Evelyn Thaw's
testimony at the trials. Thaw's letters to
Mr. Gleason bear upon this. It Is thought.
Trying to clear Thaw of another "de
lusion" Mr. Gleason presented a report
of detectives regarding an alleged attempt
of Thaw's life on the night of December
24, 190J. ' The wording of -this document
was not made public, but It was Introduced
to counteract the' state's contentions that
Thaw had delusions concerning the "Monk"
Kastman gang, which he believed had been
engaged by his enemies to beat and per

If he can show' that Stanford White and
a number of wealthy friends did maintain
several establishments where young girls
were ruined, and that an attempt really
was made on his client's life, Mr. Mors
chauser will be able to dissipate some of
the "delusion" evidence of the state.
He Intimate that h haa om surprises
In store for the remaining davs of the
hearing, including ten lay witnesses who
may testify as to what Thaw knew of

sum up on Saturday and If possible finish
the case this week.

The dull routine of expert testimony was
Jarred this afternoon by an Interruption
from Pletro Capo rale, a wild-looking Ital
ian who had been hanging about th place
for 'several hour and who tried to force
his way Into the room. When the attend
ants refused him admission he waved a
letter and demanded to see District Attor
Tell Thaw they will rob him a they
robbed me of my children," he yelled re
peatedly. It developed that he wanted Mr. Jerome
to help htm obtain the release of his little
girls from the -Juvenile asylum In New
York. No weapons were found on him,
and after Dr. William J. Meyer, one of
Thaw' expert,' had pronounced him prob
ably a harmless lunatlo, the man was
placed on a train and sent to New York.
