at $70,000,000, began today to disgorge
themselves as Importers released their

"It Is only competition, caused by the

said Mr. Underwood today. "It will be
several months before the effects of the
new tariff on commodities is felt and
In many cases It may be a year. The

Differ on Question
of Making Transfers
WEBSTER CITY. la.. Oct. .-(Special.)
The Northwest Iowa Methodist confer
ence, in session In this city, today got
up against a proposition which caused
considerable discussion In the upper
Iowa conference last week In Tipton. It
Is the matter of barring ministers from
other conferences coming into the bigger
charges of this conference and of per
mitting ministers in this conference from
leaving to accept better pastorates In
other conferences. And while the con
test Is of the very friendliest it Is being
vigorously fought out over the specltlo
instance of Rev. W. H. Spenco of Fort
Dodge, who lias a call from the Cedar
Kails church In the upper ibwa confer
ence Just now tho unusual spectaole is be
ing witnessed of two bishops at the con
ference, one on one 'side of tho question
and one on the other. Bishop Shepard
of Kansas City, who Is presiding over
tho deliberations of the conference, in
clines toward the view, of keeping min
isters from going from one conference
to another. He is opposed to the trans,
fer or Rev. Mr. Spcnce. On the other hand
Bishop Bristol of Omaha, resident bishop
of the conference, arrived in tho city to
day to appear In bohalf of the Cedar
Falls church and champion the transfer
of Rev. Mr. Spence. It Is difficult to fore
cast the outcome. And to add to the
difficulty of the matter, a large dele
gation of Fort Dodge Methodists called
on Bishop Shepard' In tho afternoon to'
ask the retention of Rev. Mr. Spence.
At the business session, the supernu
merary and superannuated lists were
gone over. The following' new ministers
were received Into full membership in
the conference: Lester Dale, A. J. Trent,
Arthur Bottom, L. Mitchell, W. H, Wln-
tersteln. The following were taken Into
the conference on trial: George A.
Moyer, L. E. Wordell, L. G. Gardner,
M. L. Metcalf, Otto EX Ellison, Thomas
K. Griffith, John L. Ralston. Rev. C.

Dr. Craig of Sioux City, president of
Mornlngslde college,' was here Friday
and was an interested spectator at tha

Says Currency Bill
Favors Large Banks
WASHINGTON, Oct 4.-An .Ineffectual
fnMSm'toTVsle of the
administration currency bill In the senata
banking nnd currency committee - was
tnade vby supporters pf the measure to
day. Senator Shafroth argued vainly for
an agreement to Close hearings on the
bill next Saturday, October 11, but re
publicans on the committee protested
vigorously. Senators Reed nnd Hitch
cock, democrats, " who have opposed
hurrying the bill, were not present,
H. J. Jen'ett, a business man of Aber
deen, S. D., appealing before the com
mittee declared that small banks In the
northwest and in other agricultural sec
tions of the country had little or nous
of the ninety-day commercial paper made
eligible in the bill for rediscount and as
a basis for ourrency. He said that the
country banker -was forced to carry the
farmer for long time loans on paper
which woUld receive none of the advan
tages of the bill.
J. C. Bassett, president of the Aberdeen
National bank of Aberdeen said the
measure discriminated against national
banks and that he would advise stock
holders of his bank to leave the national
system and take out a state charter If
the 111 went Into effect.
Members of the 'committee expressed
the opinion that it would be possible to
reach an agreement to close the hearings
on October 16. How long the committee
would consider the bill after that date
cannot be conjectured, but an effort will
be made to report to the senate early In

on charges that he robbed a Pittsburgh
merchant in a hotel there, was released
today by order of a police Judge on his
His counsel gave out that they would
bring suit against the Pittsburgh chief
of police and the Pittsburgh citizen who
identified Brokaw's photograph in the
Pittsburgh .rogues' gallery as that of
the man who robbed him for $5,000 dam
ages on grounds of false arrest.
The police department here notified the
Judge that they were requested by the
Pittsburgh police to hold .Brokaw and
that the matter was still In the hands
of the district attorney there. The court
held that there was nothing to show
that either zeal or expedition was being
used '.to press the case, and that Bro
kaw's alibi waa so strong that he ought
not to be held unless further evidence
against him was forthcoming.
Bebel Estate Only
BERLIN, Oct 4. An authoritative
denial la issued today of published state
ments that the lato August Bebel, the!
socialist leader, was a millionaire. His

he bequeathed $5,000 to the social demo 1

It was reported that he left half of his

An accusation that Bebel was a tax
dodger and had Invested his property
abroad in order to escape German assess

he made his annual returns to the tax

tion. WASHINGTON, Oct 4.-President Wll
son went to the golf links early today,
according to his Saturday custom. When
he returned to the White House shortly
before noon he found many telegrams
congratulating him on the signing of tho
new tariff bill. With the congratulations
came in many cases the sentiment,
"Now for currency legislation."
In this spirit the president took "up the
task of accomplishing the .second, big
measure of his administration. At the
White House and executive quarters
there Is confidence that the currency bill
already passed by th house will bo
passed "by tile senate and signed by thk
president before many weeks. Thb
opinion prevails that if the work Is not
completed before the December session
of congress begins, it surely will be by
Brrnn Prnlacft BUI.
Secretary Bryan today endorsed the
now tariff law as the best tariff meas

early passage of the currency bill. Mr.
Bryan Issued tnls statement:
"The tariff law that went Into force
last night Is the best tariff measure

rouhdlng the murder of a golden-haired
child of 3 years yesterday began to clear
today with the Identification of the body,
the arrest of the baby's mother and the
Issuance of orders to arrest the man
from whose flat the body was taken late
The child was identified as Lulu Salerno
by Mrs. Louise Roebcr, who said she
was the grandmother. Mrs. Roeber told
the pollco that her daughter, Lulu's
mother, had quarreled with her husband,
Michael Salerno, a barber at Columbia
university, and left hjm a year ago to
live with another man. Lulu, she said,
was one of throe children and was taken
by Mrs. Salerno when the homo was
Mrs. Salerno last left her mother's
home, according to the mother, a month
ago with two men. One of them, Mrs.
Roeber said, was Tony Flshero, ovor
whom Mrs. Salerno and her husband
had quarreled; the other was Joseph Do
Puma, De Puma and Flshora, Mrs.
Roeber said, occupied the same flat. It
was frdm this flat that the child's body
was taken to tho morgue. A general
alarm has been Issued for Do Puma's ar
rest. The police asserted this afternoon that
Mrs. Salerno was living at the flat when
the child waa murdered. Mrs. Salerno
was hysterical when arrested this after
noon. The child's body was brought to the
morgue In a macaroni box last night by
Ralph Pasqua, an undertaker, who told'
a tale of having been coerced at a
pistol's point to go to the gunman's fiat
and remove the body. In the flat he saw
a blonde woman, weeping. When de
tectives reached the flat la'ter she was
gone and with her the gunman.
The theory advanced waa that the little
girl had been kidnaped and was being
held for ransom. There is no police
record, however, of a child 'of that de
scription being missing.
The undertaker was held today, pend
ing further Investigation of the matter.
He says the gunman told him that he had
killed the child as she begged for water
