miser, "who was facing a penitentiary
sentence because of n conviction on the
charge of arson, and who hung himself
her In the city Jail last week, cu.me to
Ms death because he could hot obtain
t95,000, which ho had on deposit in a Sew
York bunk. The inability of any of the
officials of the bank in which the local
man had his money tn hloutify him, it
Is thought, was the thing, which preyed
on Ills mind alid finally caused him to
end it all after his return here. '

all his property into cash, it Is under

who la now a New York City capitalist,
asserted in a letter whicn. has jugt reached
her that a man purporting to be Stan

to identify him so that ho could gel
money out of a bank there. Later -the

man who had done business with him
years bufore in this city.

tikeu In the civil suit of 11. M. Sullivan,

and mayor of Broken Uw. The case Is
the outcome of the efforts of the town

tiled that made It Imperative to continue
tho case until the first day of the Janu

NEW YORK, Nov. 27.-Alico Tristram,
38 years old, said to be the daughter of
n prominent clergyman in Dublin, Ireland,
committed suicide in the tlolf club house
nt Van Corlandt park today by drinking
poison while sitting alone at a table. She

that her father was Canon Tristram of
Trinity church, Dublin, and that she was
married lo a wealthy mineral water
manufacturer named Shanks. She decided
to resume her maiden name, she said,
after her arrival here, although she had a
H-year-old son in school In Ireland.
The woman's principal reason for leav
ing home, according to her story, was
because her father had married a second
time and that it was Impossible for her
to be companionable to her stepmother.
Miss Tristram had a sweet and well culti

LINCOLN. Nov. 27. tSpeeial.l-Aeeord-Ing
to W. T. Thompson, former attorney
general of the state of Nebraska and at
present solicitor of the United States
Treasury department, the TnTt adminis
tration needs but the honest considera
tion of the thinking people of this country
to secure their approval. The acts of
this administration In the enforcement of
the laws against the big Interests have
been unparalleled In the history of the
country, Mr. Thompson declares.
"The position occupied by President
Taft in the minds of the publio of the
different sections of tho country Is
unique," Mr. Thompson said today. "In
the east, among those composing the so
called big Interests, nnd especially among
those connected with the trusts, which
have feared the power of the administra
tion In the vigorous enforcement of tho
anti-trust laws, the president Is regarded
as distinctively, and In fact altogether too
progressive; while In the west, among
the Insurgents, he seems to be regarded
as a standpatter. He Is, In fact, both, but
In the best sense In which (hose terms
are to bo understood. He Is a 'stand
patter' In that he stands pat on the propo
sition that the law must be enforced and
obeyed by the great as well as the small,
the rich as well as the poor; and he Is a
progressive In that lie believes In all
rational, practical and necessary prohibi
tory and remedial legislation, and also, In
tho vigorous and fearless enforcement of
enforcing Anti-Trust l.nirs.
"Never in the history of this country
has an administration In the same length
of time undertaken so much In the line of
federal law enforcement as has the Taft
administration In Its first three years.
Never before lias so much been begun
and consummated under prosecutions for
the enforcement of the anti-trust laws, as
during the Taft administration. Not only
has there been a most determined elfort
made to dissolve trusts, but their pro
moters have been Indicted and prosecuted
"I mention a few of the suits begun and
terminated in the Taft administration:
United States Steel corporation, suit
Sugar trust, Indicted July 1, 1909; pend
