reaentatlvea of NeW Tork and European j

to Investigate tha failure of Knight. Tan
cay 4c Co. declared today that tra-nsactlona
involving millions which preceded and pre
cipitated the crash may end tn prosecu
tions in tha federal courts.
It U alleged that irregular bills of lad
log attached to drafts for heavy amounts
wero sent to 'Xew Tork and big cotton
housfs in Europe. New Tork firms, it is
believed, have lost about fl.O09.OO0. while
Kuropear. houses may hava lost between
.0C.M) and $a.rj0.ooo. It is predicted h,re
tfcst tha failure m ill tend to revolution lxe
tha cotton business in this country by de
stroying tha confidence, of buyera in bills
of lading, which hitherto have been
honored as If they were actual . cotton.
On of the vkiiting agents, referring to the
system used In dealing in cotton, said:
' "Let ua say that a long eetablls&ed
cotton firm is doing business tn Atlanta,
Tha buyers for thia firm go out Into the
country and contract for cotton. " Let ua
say that thay buy . 10ft bales at Iecaxur,
another K at Macao and a third 100 at
Hogan. Thia cotton la shipped to At
lanta to the compress and local bills of
lading; are taken , from -.ach - town to
Atlanta. : At AUactav the' Us tafc are

"Sow the railroads give a' through rata
from Decatur to Liverpool, let us say.
So tha firm takes the local bill of lading
for 1C0 a!ea from Decatur and gets in
exchange from, tha railroad, a through bill
from Decatur to Liverpool for KO bales,
when as a matter of fact only ten of the
109 Decatur bales hava been used. When
this la repeated indefinitely. It can be aeen
ha possibilities there are for fraud.
"Then &ain, business here is done largely
an credit, on the honesty of the shipper. A
shipper gets blar.k bills of lading from a
railway agent and coolly forges the agent s
signature to them, otton is sold altogether
lit .outs or . i&atng. Henc tne bills are
negotiable paper la any cotton market.
Let tha shipper be A big one; let him tell tha
agent that be has cotton to ship, and re
Quirea ftvo cars at once, it ta possible- that
the cars are not available at once, so, to
satisfy the shipper the agent may prepare
bills of lading tor the cotton to be shipped
and It may never be shipped. But the
bills may be negotiated at any cotton
Loral cotton men are Inclined to rejoice
at tha new that Urerpool cotton brokers
are tha heavy losers. They say that
tha Liverpool men, counting on receiving
from America cotton bought at a very
low figure, have shipped back to America
larga quar.titi of cotton to break the
American market. If the Liverpool men

President Roosevelt In 190 In support of
tha proposition that the railroads should
be permitted to enter Into traffic agree

today asserted that Mr. Rooaevelt waa still
a "living force notwithstanding bo may

Senator Crawford quoted from two
other messages of President rajoaevelt
and contended that tha republican plat

tha Roosevelt views.
Senator Clapp pointed out that Mr.

Interjected Senator Jones of Wa-hington,
"the public must go on paying them."
Senator Carter of Montana, supporting

Railroad Man '
on Public Issues
Bailey Wagftner Talk Freely About
Politics, Men asd Event from
General Counsel Bailey P. Waggener of
tha Missouri Pacific railroad and former
democratic leader In Kansas was In
Omaha Friday and said that he f avora
Rooaevelt for the next president of the
United KUtea and would like to aee Bryan
In 'the senate. Now that be baa retired
from active politics, he thinks that tha
railroads should keep out of. po tiles and
that the railroada and people should get
together for mutual Interests.
"I am Inclined to -think;" said Mr. Wag
gener, "that I would like to vote for
Rooaevelt for our next president. He'a tha
biggest man thia country ever produced

In many respecta a. statesman, and it
would be aa honor to Nebraska to hava a
man like Bryan In the senate. I hope
Speaking of the poslflon of railroada with
regard to politics, he said: "I think that
railroada. should keep out of politic. It'a
true that .lhelr Interests In the past hava
been on the defensive, but the people and
the ral roads ought to get nearer together.
Each r.ceda the other, and what helps on
ultimately helps the other. If tha rail
roads would keep out of politics tha feel
ing that they are back of every candidate
for office would soon die out. Tha people
are. at the bottom, fair, and If given a
chance they will act fairly, ao I think the
railroads wou d gain in the end If they
would keep entirely out of politics."
Mr. Waggener is in Orraha in the Inter
ests of the road In tha matter of building
viaducts In the city. He Waa accompanied
