FIGHT ON MAYOR
Moral Crusade in Seattle Is
IT HAS REACHED FEVER HEAT

Part in the Struggle.
x SEATTLE; Wash., April 14. The moral
crusade In this city, has reached fever
-heat. The gambling-house proprietors
were arrested, several times lasV-week,
and each time they "reopened for business.
Their policy, apparently, Is to tire out the
The moral crusade has more the air of
a bitter light between opposing Republi
can factious than anything else. The
wide-open policy has become inseparably
identified with Mayor Humes, through" the
fact that he boldly and successfully cham
pioned It In two municipal campaigns. On
the other hand, the moral crusaders are
being led in their light by the Post-Intet-llgencer,
the organ of ex-Senator Wilson.
Last Spring, when Mayor Humes was
re-elected, the Post-Intelligencer support
ed him. Immediately thereafter the May
or sought to obtain the Republican nomi
nation for Governor, In which he was
supported by the Ankeny faction in state
politics The Wilson faction brought out
J, M. Frlnk, who was nominated. The
Frink-Humes; fight was one of the bitterest
in the history of the 'state. There is little
doubt that the ..Humes influence was
thrown against Mr. Fflnk and. for Gov
ernor Rogers, the Democratic nominee,
in the campaign which followed. Cer
tainly the allied liquor Interests, not only
of Seattle, but of the state were for
Governor Rogers. Mayor Humes himself
made a speech In -the campaign in which
he bitterly attacked the Post-Intelligencer
and which indirectly cost Mr. Frlnk many
Open TVar Is Declared.
Immediately after the election of Gov
ernor Rogers, the Post-Intelligencer be
gan a hot fight on the Humes admin
istration. It attacked the manner in which
the state laws relative to liquor selling
and gambling were being enforced, de
clared crime was rampant, and the
Humes administration was winking at
vice. It succeeded in having an ordi
nance passed forbidding side or rear en
trances po saloons. Mayor Humes and
Chief of Police Meredith flatly refused
to enforce it.
The ' Post-Intelligencer kept up its light
for several weeks, when a sensational In
cident occurred. The,, paper In Its war
on "the Mayor had been seconded by the
Weekly Republican, edited by H. R. Gay-
ton, 9. coloredmanA.,Ciyton,5.aittacIts;oi..
been verv 'bitter': arid culminated wKen hK,
1 opehly Sailed AKredlth, a-, "grafter." 'This
j arousea tne umei to action JuatBone
iiTght he sword out a warrant for Cayton's
arrest on the charge of criminal libel, and
threw him In jail, held him there six
hours and refused to accept surety ball.
-Finally the accused maa's friends got
together ?500 at 3 o'clock In the morn
ing, and he was released upon Its de
posit. Later Cayton was held for trial
by a Justice of the Peacp.
Cayton's arrest "was, the signal for in
creased hostilities on the part of the
Post-Intelligencer. It declared that Mere
dith had committed a gross outrage In the
manner of the arrest and demanded his
removal. It accused him of perpetrating
an Infraction on the liberty of a qjtizen,
and of using his office for the gratifica
tion of personal spite. Mayor Humes was
unmoved, and Meredith is still doing
business at the old stand.
Meredith Visits the Editor.
The editor of the Post-Intelligencer is
Joseph Gilpin Pyle. It seems that he
and Chief Meredith had never met
One night during the Cayton ex
citement Mr. Pyle was busy preparing a
broadside, which he intended pouring Into
the Police Department through the paper
the next morning, when he heard somp
one come Into his room. Looking up he
saw a beardless, mild-looking man, ap
parently about 30 years of age, and re
sembling a clergyman more than anyone
"Are you Mr. Pyle?" queried the
"Well, my name is Meredith, and I'm
the Chief of Police. I think thatjn this
little contest for honors we should at least
know each other by sight."
Mr. Pyle expressed pleasure at meet
ing the chief, and then "the latter con
tinued: T just want to tell you I don't
care what you say about me. It wor
ries my wife a little, but I have stopped
the paper from coming to the house, so
she don't see It. Now I am ready for a
fight to the finish. I further wish to
notify you that you needn't send a Post
Intelllgencer reporter to the police sta
tion any more. The evening" papers will
get what news we have to give out. It
Is proper that we have this understand
ing before the fight goes any farther."
Meredith's remarks were said In a mild
-way, and Mr. Pyle responded In turn.
The latter, however. Is a vlogrous
fighter himself, and Instead of quailing
under Mr. Meredith's glance, he re
doubled his vigor, and the fight his been
hotter than ever since the visit of the
Meredith has made his word good, and
the Police Department Is doing all In
Its power to keep even the commonest
happenings of the day away from the
police reporter of the morning paper.
Now the chief will get out of his bed at
night to give the reporters for the
evening papers the news. Arrests are
timed so the evening papers will get
them first and the hapless policeman
who gives the Post-Intelligencer a story
will not find himself In favor at head
quarters. Despite this censorship, how
ever, the Post-Intelligencer Tias been
printing an immense quantity of news
from police circles. The police say
one or two stories of highway robbery
which It has printed have been manufac
tured out of whole cloth, in order to
bring discredit on the department.
Attitude of Other Papers.
Seattle has two evening papers, the
Times and Star. The Times is Demo
cratic, and fought Mayor Humes' elec
tion to the last ditch. Since the opposi
tion of the Post-InteIHgeircep to the city
administration began, however, it has
maintained as neutral relations as pos
sible, but its leanings have been toward
the Humes-Meredith side. It has repeat
edly declared that the Post-Intelligencer's
ttltude was Inspired' by partisan rancor
and a desire for revenge. The Star, which
claims an independent attitude, illy con
ceals its friendship for the Mayor and
Chief of Police.
One "would naturally suppose the Demo
crats would benefit by 'this Republican
row, but they won't. The Democratic
party Is badly split. The Rogers-Turner
faction is friendly to Mayor Humes. TJiis
Is natural, since It is generally conceded
that Mayor Humes aided in the election
of Governor Rogers. The so-called James
Hamilton Lewis faction of the Democracy
Is antagonistic to Mayor Humes, and will
undoubtedly try itt the next campaign to
nominate a candidate .who will be satis
factory to the moral element of the Re
publican party, particularly should
Humes succeed in getting the Republi
can nomination. i- r
It is not certain '"by any means that
Humes will be a candidate for renomlnB
tion. There are rumors that he fs anx
ious to get out front, "under, the gun"
and solace" himself with a fat Federal
job. The fight whicli Is being waged
upon him, however, may force him to
seek vindication by running again. The
sporting element hojtes this will prove
true. Under Humes they have been al
lowed great liberty, ..and he has been
their consistent triertds in the face of
strong opposition. Jl
Lair and Order League.
A law and order league Tvas organised
In Seattle several weeks ago, and It ns
now engaged In arresting the gamblers J
as often as tney open ,up ior ousiness. 11
is alleged that the police department in
serving warrants has been delinquent, and
has not attempted to seize the valuable
apparatus of the gamblers. The prosecu
tions are Instituted under the city ordi
nance against gambling, and Sheriff Cudl
hee, after serving "ope warrant, Texpreesed
a desire that the police department make
arrests in city cases in the future. This
It has done, but not to the satisfaction
of the moral element."
The gamblers are "making- a bid for pub.
lie sympathy that Is not likely to profit
them -much. Theyare telling a story to
the effect that last week, while the raid
ing was going on, an official of the Law
and Order League "sent ior one of the boss
gamblers, and told Jhjm if he or some of
his associates would majte an affidavit
that Mayor HUmes hadv received money
from the gamblers, all prosecution would
cease, and gambling' could go on as of
'yore; that the league was decidedly more
anxious to get Mayor Humes in a tight
place than it was to .close gambling.
The bad feature oi this tale is that it
does not even bear the earmarks of prob
ability. In the. first place, even .Mayor
Humes' bitterest enemfes do not accuse
him of being dishonest. They believe
he has allied himself with the
liquor and gambling elements for political
reason but the man's' reputation is too
well established for apyloneHo seriously
accuse him of "grafting." In the second
place, the character of the men who are
engaged in the moral crusade Is such as
to discredit any etory like the one men
tionedthey are seriously- In earnest in
their desire to effect municipal reform.
Some of the Mayor's political enemies
might lay a trap for him, but when the
boss gamblers "smoked up" this etory,
they overdid the thing in laying it at the
door of the Law and Order League.

land, of St, Paul assisted by Bishop
Horstmanh, of Cleveland; Bishop Foley,
of Detroit, and about 200 prominent Cath
olic clergymen from all parts of the United
States, today dedicated St Patrick's
Church, said to be one St the handsomest
church buildings in the country. The
church will stand as a monument to Fa

age, did the architectural work and su
perintended the entire construction. The
church cost $200,000.
Archbishop Ireland took as his text,
"Jesus Christ, the same today, yesterday,
and forever." His sermon was a defense
of Christianity. In conclusion, he said:
"Therefore, let us build him Christian
temples. Let us invite men Into the sanc
tuaries. Let us carry heaven s Inspiration
into the mart, the workshop and foundry.
We must have forges and factories and
industries, but these have no, moral health

all. Potent armies and navies will win

fall, If not based' on Jesu3."

In the far East To a reporter, .in. an In
terview, ne said 1 "
"I believe this Is the golden opportunity
for the Introduction of Western Ideas Into
the Flowery Kingdom, and the apparent
disagreement of the powers upon the
amount of indemnity to be paid for the
Boxer disturbances should lead-to gonie
sort of compromise, having for Its object
the development of undeveloped Asia,
rather than the levying ot a mere mon
etary fine, which could be raised by addi
tional taxation, and in the end, perhaps,
leave the real situation of the country
unchanged. I have a plan In mind which
I think Is worthy of the attention of the
diplomats, because I believe It would have
a civilizing influence. It is this: Let the
powers agree upon the amount of indem
nity to be paid, and contract among them
selves and with the Pekln Government
the entire sum, say. $200,000,000, which shall
be used for building Tallroads and other
internal Improvements in China, under
the Joint control of the powers, to be
operated by them until the full amount
of the Investment Is returned, and until
China Is In a position to become, by pur
chase, the sole owner of the improve
ments. Railroads will do more to enlarge
the prospects of China than any one oth
er agency. They will cause the people of
the interior to travel and to acquire that
breadth of view which comes- from, con
tact with the world. Now China Is in
great need of railroads, while the rest of
the world is clamoring for broader trade
facilities. The situation seems to have
been created for reciprocal negotiations
along a certain line. Railroads could be
built by the powers on the basis of a 3
or i per cent cumulative interest-bearing
indemnity bond until the claims of all
the powers are paid. In after years a
chance could be given China to acquire the
properties out of the net earnings, after
the indemnity had been provided for. Any
surplus, and I believe there would be a
surplus, could beiueed to build more rail
roads. By that time, the Chinese prob
lem would have been solved."
MINISTERS ARE CRITICISED.

Most Trivial Causes.
PEKIN. April 14. The conduct of the
Ministers of the powers over the negotia
tions with the Chinese plenipotentiaries
causes much adverse comment among the
military authorities. Their dilatory tac
tics have prevented what might have been
accomplished two months ago. Even now
the meetings of the Ministers are post
poned for the most trivial causes. For
example, the desire of one Minister to go

CONFERENCE OF TAXATION.
Several Governors Have 'Named Dele
Bates Object of Meeting.
CHICAGO, April 14. The Governors of
the various states are beginning to an
nounce their appointments of delegates to
attend the conference of taxation, called
to meet at Buffalo. May 23 and 24, by
the National Civic Federation. At the
headquarters, notice of the appointment
of the delegations has been received from
the Governors of -Missouri, Maine and
Montana. The call for the conference Is
signed by leading economists, tax experts
and public men representing all portions
of the country and all Interests. The let
ter of Invitation says:
"For many decades the states have been
building up independent systems of tax
ation without reference to each other, un
til now we have a st3te of affairs bor
dering on chaos, wher&'each sta-tjj is prac-
uuuiiy iiouuun nturiy every uuier siaie.
Some property is taxed three or four
times, while other property Is not taxed
at all. Corporate activity has largely
changed the character of Individual In
vestments. Industry has overstepped the
boundaries of any one state, and commer
cial Interests are no longer confined to
mere local limits. This conference will be
the first attempt In this country to work
out some uniform principles. It Is not
expected to settle any of the problems In
the two days' discussion, but it will be
a beginning, and may result Inp the ap
pointment of a permanent committee to
work out some basis for future action."
The Aliever Failure Explained.
MEXICO CITY, April 14. The failure of
D. Aliever & Co., large French dry goods
merchants here, is partly due to the
money stringency. The firm was also en
gaged In cotton manufacturing. The lia
bilities are said to be between $500,000 and
$900,000. Bankers say the concern will
probably be able to pay 90 cents on the
dollar. The principal creditors are the
National Bank of Mexico, the Bank of
London and Mexico, the Central Bank of
the State of Mexico and the City of Lon
don, and a large dry goods house.

six or seven, shots In the direction of

occurred just before midnight. Powell
was seen running away afterward. Hla

Threats had been made that with the

Another mining man with company lr

The story told bjr this man was as fol
lows: "Deputy Sheriff Rose, coming up the
streets of Mullan late Saturday night,
was flred on from behind by a gang.
Rose was hit in the back and shoulder.
In- the morning it was discovered that
one of them had been killed. The dead
man Is supposed to be one of the old
timers who went through the riots of

that the attempted assassination was to
satisfy personal grudges. They think the?
origin of the trouble was In saloon or
