; Mlnnensota at Port Townsend t a late
i hour last night with JH.Ono tons of freight
valued at S00,000, much elf it destined for
quick transportation to the east has given
added cause for apprehension.
In thn shipment are 1,177 bales of raw
' silk for New Tork and 900 tons of other
' Oriental freight for other eastern cities.
Last night, after twenty-four hours of
' Idleness, . attempts were made to dispatch
freight over the Northern Pacific railway.
Two trains were stnrted from T aroma, one
! Tor the Cray's Harbor country and one for
l)hs local service to points between Puget

No Details of Deal.
Beyond these bare facts, Mr. Morgan and
his partners declined to give any details.
The exact amount of the stock bought by
them and the price they paid remain for
subsequent announcement. Nor would they
name any other Interests allied with them,
although It Is commonly understood in
Wall street that at least one large trust
company may take a hand In the deal If
Uin consent of the Equitable Is obtained.

Ryan Bays from Hyde.
Mr. Ryan's holdings in the Equitable
were bought in large part from James H.
Hyde, although Edward H. Harriman had
laid plans, which, as he supposed, were
to assure him the control which went in
stead to Mr. Ryan. It was during the
hearings of the Armstrong insurance in
vestigatlon that Mr. Harrlman, when
questioned on this point, coined what sub
uwduently became a national byword. He
was asked if he had settled scores with
Mr. Ryan and answered terser: "Not
yet." The public added with ready in
tuition, "but soon."
At tlio offices of the Equitable society
President Puul Morton professed Ignorance
of the transfer and news of the change of
control seemed to come as a surprise to
other officers.
It is known, however, that tha directors
of the society and the principals to the
dual were in conference yesterday and
until late today and there is authority for
the statement that the transfer met with
their approval.

v Rock Island and Lehigh.
NEW TORK, Dec. 2 Announcement was
made at the offices of the Lehigh Valley
railroad today that William Moore. Daniel
G. Reld and E. S. Moore of the Rock Is
land company would be placed on the
ticket of the election for directors to the
Lehigh Valley company, which will be
held at the annua meeting of stockholders
on January 18, 1910.
It Is further announced that three of the
present directors of the Lehigh board will
retire, though their names were not made
publlo It Is understood that the three
retiring directors of the Lehigh Valley com
pany are Messrs. Stearns, Lippincott and
McFadden. William H. Moore and Daniel
G. Reld will become members of tha
executive committee of the Lehigh Valley
company, it Is said.
The announcement that the Rock Island
Interests would be placed On the Lehigh
Valley board was no surprise to Wall
street, where It had been known for some
time that Mr. Moore and Mr. Reld had
been heavy purchasers of Lehigh Valley
stock.
Coincident with the absorption of Lehigh
Valley stock, which caused a big rise In
the price of those securities on the Phila
delphia stock exchange recently, there have
been numerous reports, that the Rock
Island company would seek to connect the
Lehigh Valley end the Rock Island com
panies by taking over the Wabash rail
road. No confirmation of this report was ob
tainable today. It was authoritatively an
nounced, however, that there would be no
further changes in tho management of the
Lehigh Valley company.
New Officers for Frisco.
The director s of the St. Louis ' A Pan
Francisco Railroad company held meet
ing today and elected several new officers
for the road. The-new officers are: C. R.
Gray, James Campbell, C. W. Hillard and
W. B. Riddle, vice presidents; W. C. Nixon,

Confess They Are Puzzled for Solu
tion of Mystery Surrounding
Brooklyn Woman.
NEW TORK, Dec. l.-Follcs of three
cltlea confessed themselves baffled today
In their search for a solution of the mys
terious death of Mrs. O. W. N. Knead, tha
young Brooklyn woman, found dead In a
bath tub In a house In East Orange, N. J.
Although tha friends who have been In
vestigating declare themselves satisfied
that several persons were Involved In the
alleged murder, but on arrest has so far
been made.
This prisoner Is Virginia Wardlow, a
gray-haired spinster ot excellent connec
tions In Nashville and other Tennessee
cities, who was Mrs. Snead's companion
In the lonely East Orange house and a
dweller lth her . and two other aged
women In a house In' Flatlanda, Brooklyn.
In this latter house the detectives say
they have learned Mrs. Snead had bean 111
and kept in Strict seclusion for a long time
before she was taken to East Orange.
That Mrs. Snead was practically at the
mercy of whoever was In charge of her
du'lng thess months Is one theory the de
tectives entertain. In this connection they
are today giving careful consideration to
the will left by Mrs. Snead, In which all
her property was bequeathed to her grand
mother, Martha Eliza Wardlow, and two
Insurance policies aggregating 120.000 on the
victim's life, which have been found to be
In existence.

NEW YORK, Dec. In today's session
of the trial of James F. Bendernagel and
five other employe of the American Sugar
Refining company charged with conspiracy
to clef i and, the testimony disclosed that
the prosecution was hampered by missing
witnesses. Two employes of the federal
district attorney's office, who have been
wofklng In the sugar Investigation testified
that they had found it Impossible to trace
a sugar checker named Alexander, who
had been employed by the company, or to
locate various other men who had worked
for city weighers at the docks and whose
testimony was desired at tne present trial.
The weight on one cargo as returned
by the company's weighers was shown by
this record to be 28,000 pounds greater than
the government weighers had found it. On
another cargo the difference was 19,000
pounds In favor of the company.
Auditor XV. Q. Foster of ths American
Sugar Refining company was called to
give evidence against Bendernagel. He

In ths two and a half months they lived

to transfer to her 2.700 of life Insurance,
of which his mother and sister were the
original beneficiaries. She also, after his
death, went into the probate court and
claimed 1600 Insurance on the life of Erder's
sister, Elisabeth, who died tha day Erder
became ill. In order -to obtain this in
surance, she mads an affidavit that she
was Erder's widow.
Through the shipment of furniture to

Erder traced Dora to that town and found
that she was Jiving there with Doxey.

Kin Will Dissolve Parliament.
Premier Asquith announced In the
House of Commons today that the gov
ernment had advlBcd King Edward
to dissolve Parliament and that his
majesty had accepted the Invitation. The
premier added that If the liberals were re
turned to power the first act of the gov
ernment would be the re-enactment of all
the taxes for which provision was made In
the budget rejected oy the House of Lords.
All the preliminaries to the great political
battle are being cleared away this after
Loon at Sandrlngham, where the king held
a meeting with ihe privy council during
which he signed an order proroguing Par
liament until January 17, 1910.
The fixing of this date was a mere for
mality, as before that time the present
house will have been dissolved.
The center of Interest today was the
House of Commons, where Premier As
quith on behalf of his government dellv- j
ered the reply to the action of the lords
withholding their consent upon the budget.
Tha house was crowded with members
and the galleries were filled with lords,
diplomats and other distinguished person
ages. The ministers and unionist leaders,
lnsludlng A. J. Balfour, who had suffi
ciently recovered from an indisposition to
take part In the debate, entered the cham
ber during the course of the routine busi
ness and were received with cheers by their
supporters.
Ths nationalists, who had decided not
to participate In the debate or division,
were conspicuous by their absence.
Demonstration for Asqoltb.
Premier Asqulth's first words as he rose
amid the wildest demonstration of en
thusiasm to move the resolution of which
hs had given notice on Tuesday, were:
"We are meeting this afternoon under
circumstances without example in the his
tory of the British Parliament.
"The prime minister pointed out that in
opening Parliament the king had invited
ths House of Commons alone to make
provision for the heavy additional expendi
tures In view of the necessities In the way
of social reform and the national defense.
The budget was the result and It repre
sented, he ssld, in a greater degree than
could be said of any other measure uf
"our time" the deliberate work of an over
whelming majority of the representatives
of the people.
In the course of the week ine whole
fabric had been thrown to the ground by
a body which, sdmlttedly, had no power
to Increase or decrease a single tax.
With much emphasis, Premier Asquith
declared that the House of Commons would
prove unworthy of Its traditions If It al
lowed a single day to pass without makln-:
clear that It did not mean to brook thlf
grave Indignity and arrogant usurpation of
its rights.
The session of Parliament was closing,
the premier said, without a financial act,
and, until fresh provision could be made,
the necessities of state could be supplied
only through borrowing.
He expressed the hope that the ultimate
lots to the government would not be great,
but added so far as the present fiscal year
was concerned. It was obvious the result
of the action of the House of Lords, must
create the largest deficit yet faced.
His warnings, ho said, had been unheeded
committee to look into the matter. Sec
retary Armknecht of the Iowa association
In his report gave a broad Indictment of
many Implement manufacturers In that
they have established branch houses 1n
small places and taken trade which be
longed to the local dealers. He also in
sisted that manufacturers have over
charged in the matter of freights and he
urged a system of more perfect bills of
lading.

Des Moines was given soms sound ad
vice In regard to how to proceed to se
cure government work to make the Des1
Moines river navigable by Engineer Roche
today. He advised that the city arrange
for the disposal of the water power that
would' be developed, secure legislation
looking to the - operation of steamship
lines on the river and secure a guarrnty
that in case the river is made navigable
It will actually be used for commerce.
It is thought the last provision will be
so hard to meet that it will be some time
before the river is made navigable.
Commission and Collections.
In the hearing before the railroad com
mission today on complaint as to various
matters affecting express companies the
latter raised the point that the commis
sion has no Jurisdiction over rates which
involved collections. The companies
claim that such rates are properly col
lection matters and not transportation.
The commission has not yet decided, but
is engaged in fixing general express rates
in the state.
