Grand Jury Returns Indict
ments in Postal Cases.
SEVEN ARRESTS WILL BE MADE
Whole Affair Is Clouded in. Mystery
Until Tlxen Much-Wanted Balti
more Contractor Is Located
WASHINGTON, Sept 8. After deliber
ating several -weeks over a mass of doc
uments submitted by the PostofHce In
spectors, the Federal grand jury, In this
city, today returned seven Indictments
in postal cases involving six different per
sons. All the indictments were kept oil
the public record, and both the officials
of the District Attorney's office and fit
the Postoffice Department refused to dis
cuss the names or details of the indict
ments until the parties indicted are ar
rested. The identity of the indicted in
dividuals was left a matter of conjec
ture. It is expected that arrests will oc
cur tomorrow morning, and the Postoffice
Department will have some announce
ment during the forenoon.
The grand jury's action probably marks
the beginning of the end of the investi
gations that have been in progress since
the middle of last March. Voluminous
evidence had been laid before the grand
jury as a result of the inquiry, and, while
the present report of the jury disposes of
most of the cases, there yet remains sev
eral to be passed upon. "When the latter
are disposed of, according to Postmaster
General Payne, the investigation, so far
as the work at Washington is concerned,
will be at an end for all practical pur
poses. Several of the persons indicted
today live outside of Washington. They
will -be arrested as soon as bench war
rants can he served. Postmaster-General
Payne and Fourth Assistant Postmaster
General Brlstow received word of the
grand Jury's action shortly after that
body reported, and subsequently they had
a long conference on the subject. Both
officials refused to divulge details, pend
ing official notification of arrests.
Two other important events occurred
today in the postal inquiry. Leopold
Stern, the Baltimore contractor, who left
Baltimore before he could be arrested
on an indictment returned July 31 last,
was located at Toronto, and the long
delayed surrender of George W. Beavers,
the ex-head of the Salary and Allowance
Division, to the New York authorities,
took place. The postal officials have been
searching for Stern ever since he disap
peared from Baltimore, and finally re
ceived word from the Canadian authori
ties that he Is in Toronto. They ex
pressed much surprise at the premature
publication of his whereabouts on account
of the problem of extradition that now
confronts the Government and the possi
bility of his making good his escape now
that the information has become public
in advance of the readiness of the author
ities to effect his arrest. Beavers' arrest
caused no surprise, for the Government
all along has been kept advised of his
BEAVERS GIVES HIMSELF - UP.
Ex-Postal Chief Is Released on ,Glv
Injr $5000 Bonds.
NEW YORK, Sept. S. George W. Bea
vers, former head of the salary and al
lowance division of the Postoffice Depart
ment at Washington, surrendered himself
in the office of United States Commla
sloner Hitchcock today, and gave $500fc
bonds for his appearance before Com
missioner Hitchcock, September 15.
United States District Attorney Burnett
last night notified Beavers' counsel that
a bench warrant had been issued for the
arrest of Mr. Beavers, and that he would
be taken Into custody forthwith if he did
not immediately surrender himself. The
defendant's lawyers then verbally In
formed the Federal authorities that they
would produce their client Tuesday.
Mr. Beavers was Indicted In company
with Congressman Driggs, of Brooklyn,
and George F. Miller, local manager of
the Brandt-Dent Manufacturing Com
pany. It is claimed by the Government
that a conspiracy was entered Into be
tween the company. Congressman Driggs
and Mr. Beavers, wherein automatic
cashiers were sold to the Government at
prices greatly in excess of the customary
Stern Will Fight to the End.
TORONTO, Ont, Sept. Mr. Stern re
fused to be seen when a reporter called
at his home today. He referred all call
ers to his attorney. Mr. Stern's lawyer
said his client was ready to appear before
an extradition Judge and prove his in
nocence, which is interpreted as a dec
laration that extradition proceedings will
be followed to the end. He will not leave
the city, the attorney said, and if an ex
tradition warrant Is secured Mr. Stern
will at once leave for Washington.
C. Roblnett, K. C, is Mr. Stern's lecal
representative. "Mr. Stern maintains that
no arrangement existed between him and
Mr. Machen in regard to the leather straps
for mall carriers' bags," said Mr. Robl
nett today. "He performed his full con
tract. I bellex'o that Mr. Stern is wanted
as a witness against Machen and others
Besides, politics is so Intermingled with
the affair that no foreign government
would be willing to hand over a fugitive.'

United States Attorney Gives His
Side of the Indian Land Case.
WASHINGTON, Sept. S. The Depart

TCorthpm district for Indian Territory, an
answer to the allegations which have
been made against him that he has been
Interested In leasinir and releasing Indian
lands, etc Mr. Soper admits that he is
connected with one company, the Tribal
Development Company, of Tishlmlngo,

of the poor roads have them purposely poor, with
late trains and dangerous toad-bed? . Not a bit of

aims at New York Central R R. perfection. Why
fall short? Conditions are not favorable perhaps
the rolling stock may be in bad state of repair or
Now, recollect, the managers of every railroad
wanted to have things right, and did their best. All
were presumably honest, diligent and intelligent.
"Why is this Olds, "Wortman & King store best?
Like the New York Central. R. it is perfected,
run on "different" lines from ordinary stores, uses
brains among the motive forces. Like the New York
Central R. R. it has won a business that makes any
effort at improvement possible. It can afford to send
its small army of buyers to the marts of the world
because it can sell so many dollars worth of every
country's goods that the cost of gathering is aver
aged down to almost nothing. If you sold $500,000
of a thing would you worry over a $1000 item of
expense? That's the ratio. Now then, the Olds,
Wortman & King store is best because it has devel
oped to a point where it must be best to keep on
growing. The New York Central R. R. runs the
Empire State Express and other costly things be
cause it couldn't stay "the best" unless it kept doing
the best. The best store in all the great Northwest

CAPITAL TO BE $100,000,000
EMPLOYERS ARE UPHELD
Umpire Hold They Can T,ct Miners
Out "Without Giving: Iteaonfc
SCRANTON. Pa., Sept. 8. Carroll D.
Wright, the umpire to whom was referred
the flvo disputes betweeen the operators
and miners' representatives on the Board
of Conciliation appointed under the pro
visions of the Anthracite Mine Strike Com
mission, filed his findings today with T. D.
Nlcholls, secretary of the board.
In dealing with the question of the em
ployers' right to discharge men for any
cause other than of connection with' a
labor union. Umpire Wright agrees wholly
with the contention of the operators' rep
resentatives, and declares the right of an
employer to discharge without giving the
cause of the discharge is sustained by the
award of the commission.
He says that the Lehigh Coal & Naviga
tion Company and Coxe Bros. & Co.
should take back old men instead of put
ting on new men, in all cases where the
old men aro competent and have not been
convicted or not awaiting trial for crime
committed during the strike. The -umpire's
findings cover 25 pages of typewriting.
Regarding the complaint of discrimina
tion and blacklisting of employes In the
Lehigh Coal & Navigation Company, who
were reinstated at the end of the strike,
the umpire decided it has not been shown
that the men were discriminated against
on account of their membership in the
union, but It is of the opinion that dis
crimination existed against a small num
ber of men. He is of the opinion, as in the
case of Coxe Bros. & Co., that the Lehigh
Coal & Navigation Company ought to give
preference to all their old men who are
not Incompetent, or not guilty of misde
meanor, to render their employment un
desirable. Leading up to the final award
the umpire says:
"There can be no doubt that a man has
a right to quit tlie'lervice of his employer
whenever he sees fit. with or without giv
ing any cause, provided he gives proper
notice, and the employer has a perfect
right to employ and discharge men In ac
cordance with the conditions of his in
dustry; that he is not obliged to give any
cause for discharge, but that .he should,
as In the reverse case, give proper notice.
"This right to discharge must, therefore,
be sustained. Any other view of the case
would result In compelling men to work
for an employer when they did not wish
to, and thus enslave them, when on the
other hand It would compel the employ
ers to employ men whether they had work
for them or not, and whether the men
were Incompetent or not, and would thus
stagnate business and work to the injury
of all other employes.
"All discharges, as all qulttals, should be
made on a reasonable basis. The em
ployer and employe should treat the other
with justice and with a desire to preserve
peace. Attempts should be made in all
such cases to adjust the matter betweeen
the employe or employes affected and a
i superintendent, and such attempt was not
; made. In this case."

"You know I am very fond of Mr. Rlls;
and the reason Is that when I preach
about decent citizenship I can turn to
him and think that he has practiced just
what I have been preaching. (Applause.)
The worth of any sermon lies in the way
in which that sermon can be and is ap
plied In practice. Of course I am glad to
have the chance of being with a man
who shows by his life that he knows how
practically to apply the spirit of decency
unaccompanied by mournfulness or false
pretenses of any kind, or any weakness.
"I want to see men decent; I want to
see them act square; I want to see them
work. That does not mean I want them
to have sour faces. I want to see every
one enjoy themselves, men, women and
children. I believe In play; I believe In
happiness and in the joy of living; but I
do not believe In the life that is nothing
but play. I believe that you have ten
fold more enjoyment if work comes first,
but make your time to play also. I be
lieve in cheerfulness as well as In decency
and honesty. And In the next place I
believe In the good man who can fight
