Root's Last Advice as Counsel
Against Robbers of
Bosses of Machine May Be Punished
Despite Reluctance of District
Attorney to Act Against
His Friends.
sincerity of your purpose and In your
pluck, anfl I haxv a strong desire that
the City til Philadelphia, whose history
and good. name, ara so dear to .every
American. ha!l be relieved from the
stain whidh a corrupt xnd criminal com

Republicans have put upon her.
I Vrlsh you G65 speed la your further
efforts. .
Very sincerely yours. ELIHU ROOT.
In the mldFt of the controversy between
District Attorney Bell and the Maytir'a
counsel. Sir. Bell today sustained a frac
ture of the leg- through the falling of an
elevator In an office building. Whether
this accident will delay the trials of
Caven and Hill is not known.
PHILADELPHIA. July 17. As a result
of advice received from EHhu Root, spe
cial counsel for ilayor Weaver. It is prob
able that the Mayor will initiate criminal
prosecution against certain persons who
are prominent in municipal affairs. Mr.
Root advises the Mayor that, in face of
the refusal of the District Attorney. J. C.
Bell, to take the initiative In bringing fur
ther prosecutions, the Mayor should exer
cise his right to go "before a magistrate
and carry the prosecutions as far as the
law will permit him. This opinion was
sent to the Mayor today, and was the re
sult of a conference held in New York
last Friday. Those who participated in
the conference were ex-United States Attorney-General
Wayne MacVcagh, who Is
special counsel for the committee of nine
of this city: er-Judge Gordon, private
counsel for Mayor Weaver; Jullen T. Da
vies and Joseph S. Auerbach, of counsel
tor the committee of seventy.
The purpose of the conference was to
decide whether the Mayor was to take the
Initiative in further prosecutions, the Dis
trict Attorney having refused to do so.
The Mayor and Judge Gordon- last week
requested that the District Attorney, in
drawing "up indictments against Council
men Caven and Hill, should bring the
charge of consptracy with certain other
persons to defraud the city. Caven Is
under ball for violating, his Councilmanlc
oath in being Interested In city contracts.
and cx-Chlef Hill is under bonds to an
swer charges of forgery and falsification
of, records in connection with the con
struction of the city's filtration plants.
Action Against Bosses Refused.
At the "hearing gl-cn both men before
the magistrate, the name of the contract
Ing firm of D. J. McNichol & Co., which is
constructing the greater part of the fll
tration system, was frequently brought in
by witnesses. The members of the firm
are: Ex-Insurance Commissioner Israel
W. Durham, the leader of the local Re
publican organization: State Senator J. P.
McNichol and his brother. Daniel J. Mc
The District Attorney, in refusing to
add the charge of conspiracy to the In
dictment drawn up against Caven and
"Mill nnH in fnlflnfA rHmlnal nfApwl I n fj
against "certain other persons," 'paid that
such charges based on the evidence taken
at the Caven and Hill hearings, could not
under the law be made. He suggested
that the Mayor take the initiative. Mayor
Weaver and Judge Gordon insisted it was
the District Attorney's duty to begin
prosecutions. Mr. Bell persisted in his re
fusal, and the New York conference fol
RooUs Letter to Weaver.
Mr. Root's opinion of the question was
sent in a letter to Mayor Weaver today.
It is dated July 15, and is as follows:
I have dlscunsed very fully with Mr.
MacVeach. Judge Gordon. Mr. DavLt and
Mr. Auerbach the facts bearing upon the
determination of your present duty in
regard to further criminal proscutlon of
the frauds against the City of Philadel
phia, clearly Indicated by the te&Uniony
already taken by the further evidence
which vour counsel have collected.
It appears by the correspondence be
tween Judce Gordon and District Attor
ney Bell that you have caused the evi
dence of grave crimes by a number of
powerful and Important persons in the
City of Philadelphia to be laid before the
District Attorney, and that he has been
requested to proceed with proper prose
cutions for such crimes, either before the
grand jury or beiore a commuting mag-
fetrate, and that he has practically de
clined to do either, suggesting that you
should proceed beiore a magistrate as t
private prosecutor.
The reasons which lead the prosecut
ing officer to take the course I shall not
discuss. The resulting fact alone is im
portant lor political consideration.
Mayor Must Begin Prosecution.
It Is your duty as Mayor of the city to
see that the laws are enforced and. when
you tlnd that they are being set at naught
by criminal combinations, it is your duty
to bring the factn to the knowledge of the
officer who Is elected by the people to
prosecute the crime. It then becomes
his duty to nrosecute and not yours.
think you have done what the law requires
of you in this Instance, and that, if the
prosecutions so clearly indicated by the
evidence in your publication and in the
possession of the prosecuting officer, fall
for want of further action, no jone can
justly say that it Is through any fall'
ure of duty on your part. I do not thlnx
however, that this settles the question
as to your future action. Although the
law does not require you to prosecute. It
permits you to do go. up to the point
where the return or. the commuting mag
lstrate goes Into the hands of the Dls
trlct Attorney.
I think. In default of the action which
ought to be taken by the public prose
cutor, that you should nevertheless ex
erclse your right to go before a maris
trate and carry these prosecutions as far
as tne law permits you to. in doing wis
you should, I think, invite the aid and
co-operalton of the District Attorney, eiv
ing him everj possible opportunity to
make the prosecutions and perform the
outy tor which he was elected.
Good Xame of City at Stake.
Crimes committed by men who have
political power are often sheltered be
hind official Indifference and Inactivity,
and then some one has to do more than
his duty to secure Justice, and you will
not be the first public officer who has
done a great public service against the
renstance of these from whom the serv
ice ought to come. There is more at
stake here than the mere punishment of
isolated offenses. There is the question
whether your city shall continue to be
governer by criminals or shall take Its
place on the list of American dues ca
pable of honest self-government. To sc.
cure the tight solution of this question
you cannot omit any proper ana lawiui
When you have carried the nrocecu
tions through the hands of the commit
ting magistrate you will have done ev
erythlng within your power, and If the
prosecutions then fall after coming with
in the exclusive power of the District
Attorney and the Aucean stables remain
uncleaned. the people of the city cannot

Hopes to See City Free,
It is with very great regret that I find
myself unable to proceed further with

From Klamath County.
SALEM. Or.. July 17. (Special.) Putting
team of mules in crates for shipment by
express Is one of the latest achievements
of State Land Agent Oswald West, whose
recent trip to Klamath County proved
him a man of resources. He bought the
mules In Klamath County, led them to
Ashland and there found freight charges
would be $66, while expreas charges would
bo only J35. He therefore engaged a man
to make crates for his mules and today
they arrived safely in Salem..
West first eppled the team of mules far
out on the sagebrush plains ot Klamath
County, where he bought them. Leading
one by a rope behind his saddle horse.
he let the other fellow loose, and thus
reached Klamath Lake, which he crossed
by steamer, and then started over the
mountains to Ashland. Reaching a small
stream In the foothills, he found the log
bridge In bad shape. His horse crossed
the bridge without hesitation, but the
fnule he was leading stopped and planted
its feet firmly. Pulling, coaxing, whip-'
ping and all other ordinary expedients
were of no avail.
Finally, when about to give up. West
eppied an old tomato can by the road
side. Remembering some of the sports
of his boyhood days. West faMened the
leading rope to a tree on the opposite
side of the creek and then tied the can
to the mule's tall. When the can hit
the mule's heels, the fun commenced, the
animal lashing out wildly and finally
bolting across the dilapidated bridge to
escape his unseen tormentor. His mate
quickly followed.
At Ashland crates were made, the blind
folded mules led lntf their cages, the
blinders removed and when the crates
were loaded on trucks the agent Issued
shipping receipt to the owner. When
the crates were being hoisted into the
express car the mules suddenly remem
bered their natural weapons of defense.
and In a jiffy their cages were in kindling.
Then the animals trotted up street, to the
great delight of a crowd who had watched
their gymnastics.
How the Ashland representative of the
great Wells-Fargo managed the matter
cannot now be told, but new crates were
made and the mules shipped to Salem, to

Venezuela Considers Judge Cal

CARACAS, July 17. Venezuelans were
very much surprised on receiving the
news that President Roosevelt had ap
pointed Judge Calhoun a special com

claims of America. The Constitution, the
governmental organ, says:
'If the claims of Americans or others
existed, they would have been already
heard before competent authorities. It
may be that the President requires Infor

In conformity with the Washington pro
drivers having voted to continue the
struggle, union leaders predicted today
that the teamsters strike would be pro
longed until after the convention of the
International Brotherhood of Teamsters,
which opens in Philadelphia August 7.
Department store drivers decided by
an almost unanimous vote to continue the
strike, after they were informed that the
railway express drivers had taken similar
action. The railway express drivers' vote
resulted In a count of 163 for war and
121 for peace. There are more than TOO
members In the organization, and the
light vote that was cast was -due. It is
said, to the fact that nearly ' half the
members of the union have obtained em
ployment In other lines. Others who have
become Indifferent remained away from
the polls.
The frequently deferred plan of Mayor
Dunne to take policemen off the wagons
of the firms affected by the teamsters'
strike wept into effect today in the busi
ness district. About 500 policemen were re
turned to ordinary duties, for a time
the business streets and crossings will
be guarded by additional policemen.
Specially guarded routes to all freight
stations will be taken by wagons of

Commons today, withdrew the bill, saying
he -would proceed with It at the next ses

"This course was taken, as His Majes

cede so much during the present session.

tlons by cable from the United Irish

latest scheme for robbing Ireland," ex

Liberals, who anticipate that the govern
ment will be defeated before it is able
to pass the bill at the next session.
