NEW YORK. Oct. 15. -State Senator
Patrick H. McCarren, democratic leader of
Brooklyn, Is hovering tonight between life
and death In St. Catherine's hospital In
Brooklyn, with his physicians hoping for
the best, but prepared for the worse.
This afternoon he took such a turn for
the worse that he mnde his will and to
night a Catholic priest administered to him
the last rites.
In the late afternoon Senator McCarren
fell Into fitful snatches of sleep. When
awake he Is In, full possession of his
faculties and Insists on talking about the

never leaves the senator for a minute.

Dr. Cook to Get
a Gold Medal
Explorer Comes to New Tork to Re

to Find Barrill.
NEW YORK. Oct. 15.-New York became
the storm center of the North pole con
troversy again today when Dr. Frederick
A. Cook and several others that have fig
ured prominently In the discussion arrived
here from different parts of the country.
The explorer came from Atlantic City to
attend a public reception In the aldermanlc
chamber and receive the "freedom of the
city" from the board of aldormen. The
Arctic Club of America also planned to
give him a gold medal, which was not fin
ished In time for presentation at the big
banquet that welcomed Dr. Cook soon after
his arrival from Copenhagen.
The officers of the Arctic club were
making every effort today to find Edward
Barryll, the guide, whoso affidavit saya
Dr. Cook never scaled Mount McKlnley.
It was the sensation of yesterday's de
velopments In the controversy. Baryll la
expected here today.
Dr. Roswell O. Stebbcns, chairman of the
executive committee of the Arctic- club,

CRANE'S FRIEND TALKS
IN BEHALF OF CHICAG0AN
Claims He Haa Been Mnde Victim of
Pollttenl Intrigue Importance
of Act Minimised.
NEW YORK. Oct. 15.-Charl'es R. Crane,
who wan appointed minister to China and
who was recalled Just as he was about
to sail for his post, declined today to re
veal what his friends declare are the real
reasons for his retirement. '
One of these friends, however, Walter
L. Fisher of Chicago, Intimated that the
Incident was far from closed and that rev
elations would be made In due time that
would show Mr. Crane to have been the
victim of a political Intrigue.
"It la due to Mr. Crane," said Mr. Fisher,
"to note that In carrying out the presi
dent's wishes that he should do some vig
orous public speaking, and In the absence
of Instructions from the State department
Mr. Crane carefully confined hlmBelf to
line laid down by Mr. Taft himself In the
famous Shanghai speech, ringing with vig
orous Americanism and so definitely
friendly to the Chinese that It needed all
talk of the dismemberment of China.
"Thoxe who are so concerned about
whether. Mr. Crane was pro-Japanese or
anti-Japanese seem unable to understand
I a man who has been first, last and all the
time rlmply pro-American, and as the
1 American minister to China also pro
"His only thought In connection with
I the offending newspaper article was that
If the American government should decide
I that Its Intrcst In the 'open door' de
manded a protest, the American press
. should then be prepared to discuss It In
telligently and effectively.
I "The pofslblllty of a protest was so much
:a matter of common knowledge that the
: offending article In which It was men
tioned attracted no particular attention,
lit was not until after Its connection with
Mr. Crane's recall leaked out In Washing
ton that the Japanese embassy sent to a
newspaper office for a copy of the article."

CHICAGO. Oct. 15 -Two Italian children.
Identified from photographs tonight as
Toma?so and Grace Vlvlano, who were
kidnaped from St. Louis August 2 and who
have been sought since by the police of
many cities, were found early today wan
dering aimlessly on the north side of the
city by Detective Stephen Parodl of the
Chicago avenue police station.
The children were sitting on a curb
stone at North Halsted and Rees streets.
Both were weeping, the little girl, who Is
less than 4 years old, sobbing bitterly, and
Tomasso, her cousin, who is 7 years old,
trying to comfort her.
Detective Parodl took the children In his
arms and asked them where they lived.
Tomasso said that he did not know. Re
membering the Vlvlano case, he asked
Tomasso If his name was Vlvlano. The
boy nodded his head as It to confirm his
Identity. The detective hurried with the
children to the Hudson avenue police sta-,
tl;n and later they were taken to the North
Side station and Police Inspector O'Brien
look charge of the case.
Photographs of the missing St. Louis
children were procured from the central
detective bureau and Inspector O'Brien was
convinced, on comparing them with the
homeless foundlings, that the recovered
children were the long-sought victims of
the St. Louis kidnaping, which had taxed
the Ingenuity of the detectives In many
cities for many weeks.
Tomasso, the elder. of the children, was
asked by the Inspector and Captain Rehm
where he and Grace, his cousin, had been
since they were taken from their home In
St. Louis. The child could give no Intelli
gent answer. He said he did not know
where he lived and could give no account
of his abandonment.
At the Chicago avenue, police station
It waa stated that the boy appeared to be
in a daaed condition and the little airl wan
j too young to gle any comprehensive state
ment cjncerning nerself.
Inspector O'Brien notified the St. Louis
police tonight of the recovery of the chil
dren and their parents In fit. Louis also
were notified and are expected to arrive
here, tomorrow, morning, to reclaim . them.
Meanwhile detectives are searching Italian
sections of the city In an endeavor to learn
who aoandbhed ' the 'children and where
they had been since their mysterious dis
appearance from St. Louis last summer.
The police believe that the kidnapers
had the children secreted In a secluded
section of the city and turned them loose
when efforts to extort ransom had failed.

CHILDREN A SACRED CARE
Dr. Edgar Blake Urges Christian
Duty to Childhood.
DON'T WASTE TIME ON ADULTS
Chicago Woman Makes Address at
Snnday School Institute on "The'
Study of Beginner" that
That every child, no matter how humble,
should be cared for spiritually, was urged
by Dr. Edgar Blake at the Friday after
noon session of the Methodist Sunday
School Institute. His subject waa "Build
ing Bigger Schools."
."I can conceive of no greater hypocrisy,
no greater crime, than to shut the door
of the Sunday school In the face of the
humblest child of our land. A woman
once said to me when speaking of the
admission of neglected children to the
Sunday schools, 'I am sorry to say that
such children ore. not welcome In our
school.' It Is the business of the Sunday
school to minister to every child In the
community. No Sunday school haa per
formed Its full mission until It has done
Its best to reach the last child In the com
munity. "What are you going to do with the
boys and girls from 6 to 14 yenrs In the
sweat shops, that sorest spot In our civil
isation? There are hundreds of children
In every community that are born as
moral and social outcasts. The time Is
coming when every church must reach out
its hand to every neglected child. If you
do that you will double your schools here
In Omaha and Council Bluffs."
Must Impreaa Child Spiritually.
Dr. ninke's address was preceded with
an address by Miss Edna Dean Baker on
the subject of "The Kindergarten in the
"The purpose of the child's garden Is to
bring -the child closer to God," she said.
"We must begin with the child himself.
He brlngf to the Sunday school his ac
tivities and restless body. It Is not for
the child to select his activities. We
must select them for him. We must teach
him something different from hls own
experience. Wo must teach him rever
ence while he Is young. It Is a good
Idea to take the child to church even be
fore he understands a word about God."
Mrs. Antoinette Lamoreaux gave an In
tensely Interesting address on "The Study
of Beginners" at the sewslon Friday morn
ing. Using the blackboard, she proceeded
to Illustrate the points of her address, with
reference to the pupil, the teacher and the
"The vexing problem of the Individual
pupil is what we must solve," said Mrs.
Lamoreaux, "and It must be definitely
solved for the pupil before a girl has
reached the age of 21 or a boy the age of
23. Much time that Is given to influencing
grown-up people Is wasted, God's best
time for telling work Is wisely provided,
from the age of S to 9 or 12 to 24, and from
that to the end of life."
Mrs. Lamoreajux alHo talked upon "The
Study of the Primary Age" at the afternoon
session. "The child gets hold only of that
which comes through his senses," she Said.
"Some children have perfect senses, while
others have defective senses. Give a little
more attention and much patience to the
child that has defective senses. In Illus
trating a principle to a child by a story
seek to bring the Btory by Interesting stages
to the climax, thus enchaining its gratified
Interest; then after the climax the end."

Defects oi Army
Are Pointed Out
Detached Service Results in Harm to
Commands Officers' Rides
Thought Too Harsh.
WASHINGTON, Oct. lS.-Treatlng prac
tically of every branch of the army, the
annual report of Inspector General E. A.
Garllngton, made ubllc today Is devoted
to careful comment oh conditions, some of
which are criticised and other commended.
Generally speaking the belief Is expressed
that the army Is greatly In need of In
creased infantry and field artillery and of
reorganisation of the cavalry and the
opinion Is - advanced that legislation to
this end would no doubt be falrlltated by
quartering .the troops where they would
come closely In contact with the people.
There was an Increase of about 40 per
cent in defects. Irregularities and defici
encies reported per post during the last
year. The Irregularities and deficiencies
are, however. In the bluntly expressed
opinion of General Garllngton, such aa
may be remedied If officials would make a
reasonable effort to master the regula
tions and exercise good common sense.
-The reports present the . problem of
absentees, of officers from . their com
mands and a general complaint" from all
directions. It la said that the service Is
crippled by this practice. General Garllng
ton declares It should be determined
whether the valuable - service .. rendered
the government on certain line of de
tached duty .compensate for. the low of
efficiency in their own organisation due
to their absence, and for the discontent of
the officer who have to perform the extra
duty without extra pay while those absent
frequently receive .extra emolument. .
In a chapter devoted to the annual phy
sical tests Inaugurated at the direction of
President Rooaevelt, General Garllngton
concludes with the observation that a state
ment requiring an officer to take exercise
commensurate with his duties and age,
during the entire year, as shown by per
sonal monthly reports, would better ac
complish the purpose sought by, Mr. Roose
velt's order than the practice - now. In

The morning of the big foot ball game be
tween Minnesota anb Nebraska finds both
elevens In fine condition for their annual
struggle and each expecting a hard battle.
At Lincoln, "King" Cole and his men are
ready to fight the hardest game of the
year. Every man Is In tip-top form.
Journeying from Minneapolis, Coach Wil
liam 1 coming to Omaha with the strong
est bunch of Oophers that has represented
the northern school In years. Like Ne
braska, every member of the Minnesota ag
gregation Is In fin physical condition. Not
a member of the eleven selected to face
the Comhuskert I suffering from even the
Th- Cornhuskers were run through their
final scrimmage for th big gam at the
tat farm. In Lincoln yesterday afternoon.
It wa. the most encouraging practice of
th (fall, according to "King" Cole' view,
and the Nebraska rooters ar now confi
dent, that their team will make a good
showing against the powerful Oophers.
In the lineup of th Comhusker last
night , was "Tub" Ewlng, last year' pow
erful right guard, who has been out of the
previous game of the season on account of
scholastic dellnquencey. He passed his final
examination Friday afternoon and wa yes
terday declared eligible for the clash with
' Ewlng Strengthens Line,
His addition to the eleven gives a tower
of strength at right guard, a place that has
been very weak all fall. Ewlng weighs 200
pounds and Is one of the strongest men In
the university. ,
With Ewlng at Tight guard th center
trio .op the Nebraska eleven Is completed.
Shonka will be posted at center and Wol-
eott at left guard. Wendstrand will be
kept on tho sidelines to start the game.
"King" Cole expressed himself Inst night
as confident that Ewlng's return to the
team would make the Nebraska line strong
enough to stop the strong charges of the
speedy Minnesota backs.
If the line can hold against the Gophers'
onslaughts Nebraska's chances of keeping
the northern team to a low score are very
good, for It la believed the Nebraska back
field will be akle to do its share on the
The Comhusker backs ar Nebraska's
hop of scoring on the visitors. For the
last three week plays have been taught
the Comhusker back with the special pur
pose of '"coring on the Oophers, Built up
round Right Half Frank are some of the
cleverest tricks tnat have ever been seen
In practice on a- Nebraska field. These
were used successfully against the second
eleven time after time luring the last week
and "King" Cole Is banking on their being
effective In the big game today.
The forward pass. In the use of which
tho Cornhuskers Just now are the most
perfect of any team In the Missouri valley,
will be Uherally used. Captain Beltrer will
try a variety of the passes during the game
today and these are calculated to keep the
Mlnaeaotan Are Strong.
Coach William I coming to Omaha with
hi player, confident of running up a
big score on Nebraska. He ha a team
that Is probably th equal of any eleven
In the west, Chicago Included, and It
would be nearly a bad a a defeat If hi
men should b held to a low score today
by the Cornhuskers.
None of tho Cornhuskers Is expecting
to defeat Minnesota. Every student at
the state school realises Minnesota Is a
powerful team and all they expect their
eleven to do Is to hold down the pupils
of Coach Williams.
Coach Cole of Nebraska is confident his
men will make a good showing. He looks
for them to score, and to make Nebraska's
points he 1 depending upon the trusty
toe of Frank.
Frank' exhibition of p:ce kicking In
the Knox gam haa encouri-ged the coach
to look for acme aenaatloi.al work from
thla man In the game today. If the Corn
huaker line holda Frank 1 almost certain
to get on or two goal from the field.
At Lincoln there ha been some betting
on th game. No bet hav held th Com
husker favorite for getting th victory,
but many hav been mad that the Ne
braska elevea will score.
Some of th Gopher rooter wno arrived
in Omaha yesterday anf who ar located
at th tom ar willing to wigar money
that tb Comhusker will not score. They

traversing the long reaches of the territory
of Ne,w Mexico had a glimpse of nome of
tho most ancient adobes In America, leav
tng the train at one time to go into the
plan of a pucl.lo to witness an Indian
danco especially arranged.
The color of the southwest tinted his
recopflon at all the various stops along th
way. Arriving here at 5 o'clock the presi

audiences of his territorial trip of the last

Indian Give Present.
As he sat In a little canopied stand In
the plaza enclosed with adobe huts and
walls, the president was showered with
presents. There were blankets of gaudy
colors, Indian beads and other offerings
which the red men had fashioned In his
honor. The plaza Itself, the walls and the
terraced roofs of tho adobe house were
lined with Indians, the squaws being at
tired In fantastic costumes which showed
all the brighter under the glare of an un
clouded sun. . .
There was hardly a squaw In the pueblo
that did not have a bright-eyed, chubby
faced little pappoose either In her arms
or swung on her back. More little Indian
boys and girls were arranged in a long
row to welcome the president and each
one carried an American flag.
As tha president was leaving the plaza,
after the weird music of the tom-toms
had died away and the last steps of the
Comanche dance had been taken by the
gaudily-bonneted braves, the little chil

president stopped several minutes to lis

From the plaza, crowded by a curious
throng" of Indians, the president went to
the church, an adobe building. In a little
speech, spoken slowly and with emphasis
on each syllable In order that all who
spoke English at all might understand,
the president assured 'the Indians of the
good will of the government and urged
them to be good farmers and good artisans.
He was warmly applauded and every In
dian wanted to shake his hand. These
evidences of Interest, and, It might be said
of enthusiasm,' were unique, coming from
such a stolid race.
Talk to the Red Men.
In his address to the Indians Mr., Taft
I want to convey to the Laguana and
Acoma Indians, who I understand consti

government of the United States. I hop
that the Indians whom I am addressing
are working industriously in the vocation
which they know agriculture, and in other
branches of Industry. I hope that their

that they may continue to. live In comfort
under the auspices of the government, that
