NEW YORK, Aprfi 17. (Special Tele
gram.) rierre Prosper CSai ven, tho public
prosecutor of Hudson county. N. J., who
will appear before Governor Fort oa Mon
day to urge the extradition of th meat
barons from Chicago, has been In Wash

approval of I'resldont Taft, Attorney Oen
cral WlrkerHham and Senator Lodge In his
war on the "meat trust" and he expressed
confidence that Governor Fort will sign the
papers that will enable him to got the
controlling factors.
"Standard Oil company laughed derisively
at the poor, struggling lawyer who was
elected mayor of Bayonne four years ago,"
said Mr. Uarven today, In an Interview.
"It was an expensive chuckle, for I Jumped
their taxes from SfOOO.tHW to 13,(HU,000.
"When I was In Washington,"- he con
tinued, "I had a long talk with Senator
Lodge and he showed me that his com
mittee, which Is investigating tho high
cost of living, is after the cold storage
plants where tons upon tons of meat and
poultry are stored away. My contention Is
that by maintaining surveillance over the
cold storage plants In and about Greater
New York, the evil may b checked. P.aee
honest inspectors in charge of them, and
sue that every fowl, every jdeoe of meat
and every egg that entr them Is stamped
with the date It Is received. Then the pub
lic can know when It Is buying storage
meat and It can, benefit by the difference In
cost between it and the fresh product If It
so desires.
Attempt to Influence.
"Yes, an attempt was made to Influence
me to drop these prosecutions. The pro
priety of making an arrest In this Instance
did not arise. I only wljh It could. I was
given to understand that I had but to drop
the Vase and riches would four In upon
me and from sources that could rLCver bs
"The results of the investigation of the
cold storage methods led me to believe
there was something wrong. I continued
these Investigations until I was satisfied
that certain corporations and Individuals
were violating the law. The National
Packing company was formed in 1W03. I
knew of its real significance only by sur
mise. The puollc knew little or nothing of
It. It was Incorporated by dummy Incor
porators, as I ascertained by delving Into
the records. Hut th records told their
own story after I had penetrated their
depths for the namea of the real incor
porators appeared on subsequent documents
referring to the corporation. Ti.n light
dawned upon me, and I realized what a
gigantic ta."k there was ahead of me. liut
the names are all In the public records and
these men I purpose to bring to New Jer
sey and I believe I shall succted."

MULLEN. Neb.. April Ifi. (Special Tele
gram.) Just two years after O. F. Hamil
ton mysteriously dropped out of slg'ht his
body was dug up from a hastily made
grave near thn local stock yards. By the
fii ding of his body a mystery hns been
unravelled and a crime cleared up that
has baffled the authorities since he was
last seen alive.
A man's guilty conscience prompted the
story of the murder, the subsequent burial
and the solution of the perplexing mystery.
Frank Cleavcnger today confessed that he
I Cleavenger today filed an affidavit giving
his story of the murder, stating that the
matter had been on hie mind ever since the
right of the tragedy and that he could
no longer stand the strain on his con
science. On the night of the murder, states
Cleavengcr, 1 he end Mclntyre entered a
saloon in Mullen by a rear door to get
a drink. Hamilton was seated In a cor
ner, apparently asleep. According to
CW avenger, Mclntyre first awoke his In
tended victim, then struck him over the
head with the butt end of a revolver,
which caused unconsciousness. The pros
trate form was then rolled down the col
lar, win re the murder was done.
Cleavengcr states that C. W. Rector also
was a witness to the murder and that
both were compelled to assist Mclntyre
in burying the body under thrat of death.
This was done under cover of darkness.
In the stock yards, near the Purllngton
Mclntyre resides at Seneca, where he
has a family. He has not yet been placed
undtr arrest.
Hamilton was a well-known lawyer and
is si id to have Incurred the enmity nf a
number of people by his activity In un
earthing land frauds. His sudden dlsap
peaiance caused a sensation In this sec
tion of the country, for there were no
clues to his fate.

Thermometer Fell to 22 at 7 a. m. on
Sunday Morning.
Jnat How Much. Damage Was Done In
Orchards Cannot lie Told for
a Week Today Should
D Warmer.
Since 5 o'clock Saturday evening the ther
mometer has been below freezing point. At
that hour the thermometer fell to 32, the
freezing point. Snov continued falling In
flurries all night, and Sunday morning the
ground was distinctly white In and about
At t o'clock Sunday morning the ther
mometer stood at 2.1. at 6 It waa one degree
lower. From then on It began to rise, but
very slowly. At 12 o'clock 27 degrees was
tho mark, and the high point, SO degrees,
was reached at 5 o'clock Sunday afternoon.
There It stood at 6 and 7 o'clock, with a
wind out of the north making heavy over
coats very popular.
Speaking of the possible effect of the
freeze on the fruit orchards, Deputy County
Treasurer Emmet Solomon said the real
story cannot be told for a week or ten
days yet.
"I recall, said Mr. Solomon, "that on the
10th of May two years ago we had a very
sever frost, yet fruit raisers had a good
crop at grapes that year. Cherries were
hurt worst, being practically put off the
list In this neighborhood. We had some
peaches and a fair crop of apples. Of course
in a freeze like this, the buds that are out
will be killed and fall off, and this season
we are away ahead of the 10th of May.
Puds that are. not yet out. however, will
probably come along all right, If condi
tions do not gorw worse later.
Always Gather Some Frnlt.
"For twenty-five years that I have been
more or Kss familiar with fruit growing
In this vicinity wo have always had a
pretty good crop of grapes, and more or
leys other fruit, no matter how unfriendly
the frosts seemed to be. I guess we'll have
some fruit this year, when the picking time
W. L. Crosby, a veteran fruit raiser of
Florence, says that apples, cherries and
plums have been pretty severly hit by the
fall In tempemture, but he la not looking
for a complete failure of the fruit crop.

puny und. rtnken by the state Insuran e

Vfiops these fncts: K
1. The final effort of the new msna ;
mrnt to recover U.OO.niM from the In
President Richard A. McCurdy and bin
nssoclntes of the old management resulted
In a net outgo of $217,819 lore than the cc
piiny received from the MK'urdys.
2. Since the Armstrong lnw wont Into ef
fect thn Mutual' expenses of maintenance
nnd administration have dropped from
$15."20.:'Ol In l!!o4. the year previous to the
Arm trong Investlfatloli, to In 19.
whllo th- volume of business remained
about tho same.
.1. As late as IWi Agents of the company
wer, still active cnmpUgnws In the Inter
ests of directors seeking re-election, al
though the report does not charge that
this was done nt the Instigation of tho
directors themselves, or with their con
nivance. For these electioneering services
I agents of the company received In 1H08
flfi"l.?31 of tho policyholders' money.
4. A late as 190S payments to agents Ag
gregating f.?M,ni, which did not apnear on
the books of the company as bonuses for
getting new business, but are nevertheless
believed by the department to ba such,
paid In violation of the Armstrong lam, '
were traced to the Boston offlco . Thera
Is no record of them In tho homo office.
In Boston tluy aro charged to "auperpislo
of eld business," which la to say, ta pre
vent tho lapsing of old policies. '(
Henort Called I'ntrae.
Superintendent Hotchkisa characterise
the report submitted by the company" a
committee which recommended the accept
ance of the compromise with tho McCurdya
aa "untrue In at least two .particulars and
defective In one more." "And It Beema to
us." he continues, "that either the com
mittee did not know the facta or purposely
misled the board of directors."
Nevertheless It la said the report on tho
whole Is complimentary to the company.
The examiners find that the company has
complied, In the main, with the Insurance
laws as amended by tho Armstrong com
mittee. The examiners believe that the expendi
tures of the policyholders' moneys for
inestlonable purposes has been definitely
"The examiners state,", sayg tha report,
"that proper restraints have been placed
by the company upon the supply depart
ment, where expenditures for legislative
and other Improper purposes wera con
cealed by the previous management, and
that the system In operation at present wtl
prevent the recurrence of such practices."
The returns to policyholders have been
Increased correspondingly. The dlvidenda
paid In 1904 amounted to J2.074.20S and In
im to s.311.2.o. The report explains, how
ever, that one reason for this significant
increase lies In the fact that many de
ferred dividend policies matured during tha
years 1H07-OS.
