CABINET CONSIDERS MATTER
Choice Lies Between Rear-Admirals
Sigsbee, Davis and Chadwick
"Guessing Contests" Will Be
Hereafter Held Lotteries.
"WASHINGTON, Nov. 29. An Important
Cabinet meeting was held today. Two
questions of concern, in particular, were
considered, the first being the appointment
"by the President of a representative of
the American Government who will be a
naval officer of high rank, on the Dogger
Bank Commission; the other being an
opinion rendered by Attorney-General
Moody regarding the legality, under the
lottery laws, of "guessing: contests,"
which have been conducted by many
newspapers and magazines.
The Invitation extended to the Presi
dent by Great Britain and. Russia to name
a member of the Commission was con
v sidered carefully, especially by the Presi
dent and Secretaries Hay and Morton.
"When the Cabinet adjourned no definite
conclusion as to who should be selected
had been reached, but It was settled defi
nitely that the appointee would be a Rear
Admiral of the navy. It Is practically
certain that the selection will be made
from among three officers Rear-Admirals
Sigsbee, 'Chadwick and Sands. Admiral
Dewey was considered for the appoint
ment, and the desire was generally ex
pressed that he should have it, but he
has let It be understood that he does not
care for the honor.
Rear-Admiral Sands has also requested
his name' be not considered for the com
mission, and his wishes will be observed.
Rear-Admiral Sigsbee Is among the three
officers now under consideration. The
fact that Rear-Admiral Davis speaks
French fluently Is pointed out as one rea
son for his fitness for the appointment,
as a part of the hearings before the com
mission probably will be In French.
Some time ago, on the request of Postmaster-General
"Wynne, the President
directed the Attorney-General td submit
to him an opinion as to the propriety,
under the law restricting the operations
of lottery enterprises through the mall of
guessing contests of various kinds. That
question was submitted today and was
turned over by the President to Postmaster-General
"Wynne, who hereafter will
be guided in his decision of the depart
ment by It. The opinion Is of a most
sweeping character, and while the Postmaster-General
has no inclination to
work hardship upon anybody, he will put
the Attorney-General's judgment Into ef
fect as soon as It Is believed practicable,
He realizes that many thousands of peo
ple have invested small or large amounts
of .money in the various schemes in the
hope or expectation. In the words of the
opinion, that luck would enable them to
win large returns.
"A comparatively small percentage of
the participants will realize their expec
tations," continues the opinion. "Thou
sands will get nothing."
The Attorney-General says the schemes
are' In effect lotteries under the guise of
Postmaster-General "Wynne indicated
that it was not his purpose to apply the
opinion of Mr. Moody Indiscriminately,
"saying- it was his intention to consider
each case brought before the department
An Its Individual merits. It is likely, too,
that the opinion will not be made in any
sense retroactive, so far as the Postofflce
Department is concerned, but that it will
be put in operation In such a way and at
such time as may be least embarrassing
to the promoters of. or the participants in
the guessing contests.
Postmaster-General Wynne tonight gave
out the following official statement:
"For a number of years the Postofflce
Department has admitted to the malls
advertisements and other matter concern
ing so-called 'guessing contests. The
question of whether these schemes are
lotteries has been several times present
ed to the Attorney-General, .who held that
they were not lotteries within the mean
ing of the postal lottery act.
"In view of two recent cases in which
the Supreme Court and the New York
Court of Appeals rendered opinions, the
Postmaster-General felt warranted in
again submitting the question to the At
torney-General. Following the opinions
in these cases, the Attorney-General holds
that the schemes are lotteries.
"It Is therefore Incumbent upon the
Postofflce Department to enforce the law
under which the Postmaster-General is
authorized, upon evidence satisfactory to
him that any person or company is re
garded in conducting a lottery or other
scheme for tho distribution of money or
chance, to Issue an order that all mall ad
dressed to such person or coming be re
turned stamped 'fraudulent.'
"As a number of legitimate enterprises
have adopted these estimating or guessing
contests as a means of advertising, and
In view of the admission to the malls of
matter pertaining to these contests with
in the last few years, the elimination of
these schemes from the malls cannot be
maae immediately absolute. If such a
BASeme has ever been entered upon In
good faith the department will not Issue
an order that will seriously .Injure a legit
imate business. Each case will be handled
separately, and no scheme which involves
the plan ruled against by the Attorney
General will hereafter bo allowed to com

Wilson Reports on the Good Work
of the Agricultural Department.
WASHINGTON. Nov. 29. In his annual
report to the President, Secretary of Ag
riculture Wilson enumerates some of the
most important features of the year's
work. Among them are extensive co-operation
with agricultural stations: tho
taking of preliminary steps to conduct
feeding nd breeding experiments; the
war waged against the cotton boll weevil
and against cattle mange; plans for edu
cation of engineers in road building; the
production of a hardy orange, a hybrid of
the Florida orange and the Japanese tri
follata; valuable research in successful
shipping of fruit abroad; the value of
nitrogen-fixing bacteria; successful intro
duction of plants suited to light rainfall
areas; establishment of pure-food stand
ards; the extension of agricultural educa
tion in primary and secondary schools;
the extension of instruction to our Island
possessions to enable them to supply
the country with $200,000,000 worth of do
in oestlc products, now Imported from
In regard to the sugar beet, the 'chief
effort of the department has been to ef
fect improvement in the seed and to study
the diseases with a view to the discovery
of remedies. Strains of pedigreed seed
are being established In New York, Mich
igan, "Utah and Washington, having al
ready assumed commercial Importance in
the last two states. It seems to be a
question of but a few years when the en
tire 5,000.000 pounds used in the United
States will be produced at home.
There has been a demand for experi

securing crops which will grow with a
very small amount of water. Consider-'
able progress has been made In this di
The Secretary reports much progress
made during the past year In alkali rec
lamation tracts established during the
year previous, and Indications point to the
complete reclamation of the lands under
experimentation at an early date. At the
inception of the work on a 46-acre tract
near Salt Lake City, a soil survey showed
the first four feet of soil to contain more
than 6550 tons of soluble salts. In May,
1903, eight months after, there had been
removed by drainage nearly 50 per cent of
this immense total, and In the following
October only 1221 tons remained In the en
tire tract. The progress of similar work
on a 20-acre tract at Fresno! CaL, has
been no less gratifying. 'The Secretary
declares his full confidence In the final
success 6f this work, and a firm belief
that It will lead to Individual or concerted
action on the part of those most interest
ed, with the result of greatly nenentting
both the agricultural and stockralslng in

Herbert Newton, -cl Brookline, Mass., who
Is suing Mrs. Chadwick for the recovery
of 5190,900 he lent her on notes. Mr. Ryall
today Issued the following statement:
"There was a conference at my office.
at which were present Mr. Newton, Mr.
Carver, of Boston; Judge Albaugh, of
Canton, of counsel for Mrs. Chadwick. and
myself. On behalf of Mrs. Chadwick, Judge
Albaugh requested that the receivership
proceedings be put off until Thursday, at
which time he will have her affairs In
some kind of shape. This was agreed to
and Mr. Newton and Mr. Carver went
back to Boston on a late train.
' "Mr. Newton said he had seen a note
for J500.000, which was given by Mrs.
Chadwick as collateral for a loan from
the Citizens National Bank, of Oberlln.
O.. which failed yesterday. My client
told me that this note carried the signa
ture, "Andrew Carnegie." This will have
to come out sooner or later, so I tell It
Tho following statement was made by
Mr. Carnegie's secretary: "Mr. Carnegie
read this report and pronounced it ab
surd. Mr. Carnegie does not know the
woman at all."
John H. Clark, of this city, counsel for
Mrs. Chadwick, declined to state whether
ho expected Mrs. Chadwick to attend the
hearing next Thursday.
Developments today Indicate that Mrs.
Chadwick has for a long time done busi
ness with many of the banks of Cleveland,
and also In those of surrounding towns on
a big scale. Leading bankers have stated
that they have frequently lent Mrs. Chad
wick from 525,000 to 5100.000 on notes f
dorsed by wealthy persons. These notes
have, it Is said, usually been paid prompt
ly when due.
Ira Reynolds, secretary and treasurer
of the Wade Park Banking Company, re
fuses to make any statement whatever
concerning the notes given by Mrs. Chad
wick to "lis bank as collateral, and which
are also reported to bear the Indorsement
of Andrew Carnegie. There Is said to be
a posslbilltythat the motion for the ap
pointment of a receiver to take charge of
the securities amounting to 55,000.000.
said to be held In trust by Ira Reynolds
for Mrs. Chadwick, will not come to argu
ment. It was stated by one of the attorneys
for Mrs. Chadwick today that the con
tinuance was asked In view of negotia
tions for the settlement. There Is evi
dence, say the attorneys, that the matter
will be adjusted and the appointment of
a receiver will not be necessary

wick today that the latter has made ar
rangements with financial men in New
York to cover Jier indebtedness to Mr.

able Mrs. Chadwick to make a settlement
of Mr. Newton's claim.
"It was the understanding last night."
said Mr. Ryall. "that Mrs. Chadwick would
settle a large part of Mr. Newton's claim
In cash and give security for the balance."
Mr. Ryall did not know that Mrs. Chad
wick had secured Jthe funds necessary,
Mr. Ryali was asked today If it- might
be possible that the .name "Andrew Car
negie" had been forged, and he replied:
"If that Is so, less than AS hours will
elapse before some one is under arrest."

Weak and unhealthy kidneys .are responsible for more sickness
and suffering than any other disease, therefore, when, through neglect
or other causes, kidney trouble is permitted to continue, fatal results
are sure to follow.
Your other organs may need attention but your kidneys most,
because they do most and need attention first.
If you are sick or "feel badly," begin taking Dr. Kilmer's Swampr
Root, the great kidney, liver and bladder remedy, because as soon as
your kidneys begin to get better they will help all the other organs to
health. A trial will convince anyone.
