TREASURER HOOKER EXPLAINS
Officer of Moose Committee Says He
Has Asked Bankers to Contribute
: as Individuals Letters Not
Sent to Banks. .
VASHINGTON, Aug 31. Reports that
one of the political parties was soliciting
contributions from national banks for
the pending political campaign stirred
Treasury department officials today.
Any national bank making such con
tributions, declared Thomas P. Kane,
acting comptroller of the currency,
-whose attention had been called 'to the
reports, will be subject to fine and its
responsible officers and directors liable
to fine and imprisonment for violating
the law. .' . ,
The Washington Post today published
a report that E. V H. Hooker, national
treasurer of the progressive party, in a
personal letter to the president of a
local national' bank with a capital and
surplus of nearly 1,000,000 had solicited
a contribution of 250.
The act of January 26, 1907, Mr. Kane
pointed out, specifically forbids national
banks or any corporation "organized by
authority of congress, to make money
contributions in connection with any
election to political offices, including
the offices of president, vice president,
senator and representatives in congress."
The penalty for the violation of that
art is a fine not exceeding $5,000 against
the corporation as well as a fine ranging
from $250 to $1,000 agannst every officer
and director consenting to the contribu
tion, or their imprisonment for not more
than one year, or both. '
The acting solicitor of the Treasury de
partment recently decided that national
banks could receive and forward gratuit
ous contributions to political parties, pro
vided there was no expense to the bank.
This does not permit the bank itself to
contr bute it is said,. - ,
Insane Swiss Soldier
Into a Battlefield
BERNE, Switzerland, Aug. SI. A fren
zied Swiss soldier, Johann Schwartz, ran
amuck last evening and transformed the
little town of Romanshorn, on Lake Con
stance, into a miniature battlefield
strewn with dead and dying.
The soldier is a native of the town.
In a fit of madness he seized his rifle
and shot everyone within range of the
windows of his house, killing four and
wounding six men in a few moments.
He then barricaded himself in his horn.
When night fell , the house was sur
rounded by police and citizens, among
whom an hour or so later a panic broke

-wJEVV.roKK, Aug. 31.-E. H. HcwTc6r7Tetger,w-under the . impression that
national treasurer of the progressive
party, said this afternoon that he had
perhaps sent letters to a thousand bankers
soliciting aid for the progressive cause.
"But I addressed them as individuals,"
he explained. "In no case has a letter
been sent to-a corporation or to any one
as representing a corporation. If the ad
dress happened to be In care of a bank
the letters may have been sent so marked;
but it is ridiculous to say that, we have
solicited contributions from any bank or
corporation as such."
Hold Mass Meeting,
on Lincoln Side& ,""",,m
(From a Staff Correspondent, f
LINCpLN. , Aug. 31.-(Speclal.)-In re
sponse to a silent call for a meeting of
the democratic editors of Nebraska, a
gathering was held at the Lincoln hotel
yesterday afternooon. On account of the
large attendance, which was composed
of Charlie Bryan of the Commoner,
Charlie Pool of the Tecumseh .Tribune
Tribunal. L." B. Tobln of the Dally Star
and Richard L. Metcalfe of the Com
moner, with A. C. Shallenberger and
Leo Mathews, secretary of the demo
cratic commhtee as invited guests, no
room could be found either large enough
or cool enough to hold the august body
and so the meeting was made a mass
convention on the sidewalk in front of
the hotel. ; .
On motion of Metcalfe, Tobln was made
chairman, and Pool, secretary. . A mo
tion that Bryan and Pool be made a
committee to prepare resolution was lost.
Metcalfe voting no. A moilon was then
made that Metcalfe be authorized to pre
pare resolution which was carried unan
imously, nobody voting. Mr. Metcalfe
then pulled a paper from his pocket,
stated that it was a surprise to be thus
honored, and proceeded to read the reso
lutions. Somebody asked -if there was
any money in the campaign fund and
Charlie Bryan announced that there was
$8,000. Mr. Shallenberger thought In that
event that a set of resolutions were of
little consequence. However, notwith
standing the interruption, Mr. Metcalfe
continued to set forth the beauties of
democracy, one plank admitting "that
we recognize all Taft republicans as
gentlemen, and that by rights they
should leave the bull moose brethren

WASHINGTON, Aug. Sl.-Inereased
freight rates proposed by trans-continental
railroads for transportation of com
modities from eastern points to Pacific
coast terminals were suspended today
by the Interstate Commerce commission
from September 1 until December 81,
pending an Investigation.
The tariffs suspended proposed general
increases on practically all commodity
freight from Atlantic seaboard and mid
dlewestern points of origin to destin
ations on the Pacific coast rarglng from
5 to 50 per cent. In most Instances they
were effected by the cancellation of ex
isting commodities rates, thus automat
ically transferring the commodities to
the higher classification scale of charges.
While In some Instances charges would
be reduced, a checking by the commis
sion appears to Indicate that the reduc
tions would apply to little more than 10
per cent of the west bound traffic.
The lowering of rates to such desti
nations as Spokane, Wash.; Reno, Nev.;
Tucson, Ariz.; and similarly situated
cities,' was in substantial accord with
the recent agreement made by shippers
of those places with the railroads and
sanctioned by the commission as a modi
fication of the commissions findings in
what popularly are known as the "Pa
cific coast cases."
These examples of proposed increases
on commodities are cited by the com
mission: 30 cents per 100 pounds on auto
mobiles, 45 cents on furniture, 75 cents on
plate glass, 10 cents on petroleum pro
ducts, 40 cents on plumbing materials,
20 cents on stoves, and 46 cents on ve

Plea for Simplicity
and Promptness in
MILWAUKEE, Aug. 31. A plea for
simplicity In the Instructions of a Judge
to a Jury was made today before the
American institute of criminal law and
criminology by Charles A. Decoursy of
Boston, who favored the use by the Judge
of words almost bordering on what Is
known as "the language of the street"
That homicides should be tried Im
mediately after the crime is committed,
was the argument of Judge S. H. Rus
sell of Oklahoma, speaking on the ques
tion of procedure In criminal cases. If
Judge Russell had the dictation of how
such trial should be run he would do
away with "extenuating circumstances,"
the "unwritten law," "brain storm,' "de

popular excuses for shedding blood. The
only excuse for killing, he continued, is

tried in another county. District Attorney
Whitman plans to bring Becker to trial
before Justice Goff here on September
lL but John F. Mclntyre, chief of counsel
for the policeman, said today that he
would fight to the limit to prevent his
client from being tried "during the
present clamor, which I consider so
prejudlcal to my client."
Mr. Mclntyre said If he was unable
to get a delay he would seek to obtain
a change of venue.
Just what plan of action the state's at

Becker has not been made public, but
one of the assistant district attorneys
'District Attorney Whitman's case as
It now stands against Becker for murder

framed up by the witnesses upon whom
the state is now relying outrivaling the
plots and conspiracies formulated by

WASHINGTON, Aug. H.-ResponslbIUty
for the accident on the Chicago, Burling
ton & Quincy railroad at Western Springs,
111., July 11, by which .eleven passenger
and two employes were killed and twenty
six passengers and two employes were
Injured, was placed by the Interstate
Commerce commission today upon Flag
man Wood worth. But, says Chief In
spector H. W. Belnap'a report to (he
commission, "It lies wholly within the
power of the railroad managers virtually
to put an end to from 75 to 80 per cent of
these harrowing disasters.''
Mr. Belnap says the accident, which
was a rear-end collision, might have been
prevented bad the flagman exercised
proper precautions in warning the on
coming train. It is pointed out that
Wood worth did not give warning at a
sufficient distance to enable the train to
stop and gave merely a caution signal
Instead of a signal to stop.
"A contributing cause of the accident,"
reports Inspector Belnap, "was the fall
ure of Englneman Brownson properly to
control the speed of his train and to obey
the Indications of fixed signals. This
investigation also disclosed the fact that
It was not an uncommon occurrence for
trains to run past signals In the stop po
sitlon during foggy or stormy weather."
Sharp criticism also is made In the re
port of the high rate of speed at whio'i
the train was being run, particularly as
the weather was foggy and heavy. One
of the officials of the une, F. C. Rice,
inspector of transportation, testified that
"excessive speed Is the cause of about
75 to SO per cent of the catastrophes In
the last few years." Inspector Belnap
points out that if this statement be true,
the railroad managers can prevent "75 to
SO per cent" of the wrecks.

' Men Call Meeting
MITCHELL, S. D., Aug. M.-Speclal.)
Since the meeting of some seventy-five
republicans held at Huron a few weeks
ago, at which time resolutions were
adopted demanding the resignation of the
Roosevelt presidential electors In order
that the Taft men can be substituted,
the political situation In South Dakota
has ben In rather a chaotic condition. A
mass convention has been called by the
Taft committee to meet in this city Sep
tember 19 to adopt some action to defeat
the Roosevelt electors and all state candi
dates who have endorsed ths bull moose
H. C. Preston of this city, one of the
presidential electors, declared in a state
ment today that he would not resign
from the place, and that he would act in
accordance with the spirit and resolu
tions adopted by the republican conven
tion tf July 2.
What are the bull moosers going to do
when compelled to come to a show down
In giving their party affiliations to the
Are they going to continue to register
as "republicans" and "democrats," or are
they going to come out in their own
If they really believe their new party
has a future, will they cut loose from
the old parties In registration so that
they cannot get back to try to run them
again at the next turn? .
The first registration day In Omaha
comes next Tuesday, and preparations
are all made for registrars to sit and ask
the usual questions of all who appear
before them. One of these questions Is,
"With what political party do you wish
to arriiiateT" and the answer controls
when the voter wants to participate In
the subsequent primaries of his party
The effort usually is for the parties
of each side to try to make as good a
showing on the first registration day as
possible for the moral effect It may have
on the public in general. The sire of
the registration under the heading
"Progressive party" will doubtless exert
no little psychological Influence, but no
one is willing to make anyy guesses In
advance. The bull moosers have not yet
held their state ' convention nor put a
separate ticket in the field, and It is
suggested that should they fall down in
their first days' registration, they will
explain that they held off to make sure
that they would have a progressive party
banner to enlist under.
Just who Is to represent Douglas
county at the forthcoming gathering ot
bull moosers at Lincoln has not yet been
announced.' As. the meeting is supposed
to be a mass convention anybody and
everybody Is eligible to sit in it who
cares to. The principal bull moosers from
Douglas county at the last convention
which chose the delegates to go to Chi
cago to help nominate the colonel were
Nathan. Merrlam, Dr. W. .O. Henry and
G. L. E. Kllngbell. who are expected to
be In evidence again.
