Police Boxes Burned and Many Po

YOKOHAMA, Sept. 13. The meeting
held at a theater yesterday . to protest
against the terms of the peace treaty was
followed by an anti-peace demonstration.
Fourteen police boxes were burned, 37 po
licemen injured and two civilians severely
hurt. Many arrests were made.
The police say that the meeting was
the private doing of a professional agi

The promise that there would be no. pop

audience denounced the swindle and de

By Arthur A. Greene,
All the world thinks most as much
of a man who is on the leVel as it does
of a lover. People who use the Idioms
of the street exhaust their category of
tributes whon thoy say of one of us:
"He is on the level' Because; men say
this of "Joe" Folk, of Missouri, and be
lieve it, he has come, to be within the
very recent time one of the biggest fig
ures in our National life.
This young man, whom the decent
Americans who live In Missouri have
made their Governor, came to Portland
yesterday for a few days and- It hap
pened that I called upon him at his
hotel yesterday afternoon. By this
means it fell out that I had an oppor
tunity of ranking- a cursory examina
tion as to tho manner of man he Is.
Physically Folk gives one the first
impression that he Is large with a deep
chest, strong arms and legs and the face
of a student. His manners are easy
and one is won over to him at once, be
cause he has character stamped all
over him. This is as apparent as the
dollar-marks Homer Daenport used to

but a blind man or a 'dare-devil would
approach the' Missourian with a prop
osition' that "wasn't" straight, for. after
looking him over, the conclusion
comes naturally that here Is an honest
Right Stamp of Dignity.
- The Governor has dignity, but not In
a virulent form. It Is the right and
proper dignity which comes with re-'

the kind some people put on when they
wear long-tailed coats . and have as
much as $2.49 In their pockets. The
"difference is vast- for the one has brains

with Mr. Folk, but all men must re
His personality "is not showy. His
voice is low and has body. If he sang
it would be, bass, perhaps, but not the
kind that wears a bearskin In grand
opera. His qulot-spoken way and - his
serious but unspectacular face impress
me much as those of a certain frontier
Sheriff whom I once saw. This Sheriff
has a reputation of being an accom

That type of man doesn't start out to

or at leapt he waits until he gets results

notion out of your head that the City of

NEW YORK, Sept. 13. A vigorous dcr
fense of . syndicates and. their operations
In connection with the ir&urancebuslness
and a frank statement of personal profits
gained through thoir operations, made by
Frederick Cromwell, treasurer of the Mu-
ktual Life Insurance Company, was the
feature "of today's session of the special
committee appointed to probe methods of
life insurance companies In this state. The
defense of the syndicate was made by Mr.
Cromwell soon after he was called to the
stand. Before he was asked a question he
bogged leave to sav a few words, nnd.
, upon bolns directed to proceed, said:
Syndicates Are Xcccssnry.
Tbe law of combination wbleb affects finance
as-'everythlRS" else bas made syndicates neces-
Metual 'Life Insurance Company, the total
lranpaeUons la my department now are- over
$100,000,000 per annum. When our receipts
were less 20 years ago It was quite possible
for us to buy from bond dealers and pay the
successive profits, but now It Is absolutely
Impossible to boy advantageously large b.oeks
of eecurltles. except as they are allowed by
the combinations of capital, popularly calif d
syndicates, and we bave to go Into thorn to
get oar Investments and get them In sufficient
size and at "ground-floor" prices. We could
not make our Investments without syndicates
and we are partners In every syndicate Into
.which we go. I want to say further that
unless we west lute these syndicates we would
not be able to Invest our funds except by
buying In small quantities and paying the
successive profits to middlemen.
I ask you. Mr. Hughes, and the committee,
to consider that we have now over $450,000,000
of acsets and while we have over-$100,000,000
Invested in bonds and mortgages, we are
constantly under the necessity of finding ad
ditional Investments for our large accumula
tions ef funds. It Is a condition which we
meet and tbe exhibits are "hero whlen show
bow wc bave to corn ply with It. Our !nvet-
ments arq such that, when Mr. Tappen I sup
pose, about tbe roost widely known and hon
ored bank president 'in his day In New York
died, he left It as a condition that bis
trustees should have one privilege, and that
was to invest In tbe same securities as the
Mutual Life Insurance Company. That Is
the way we Invested tiur money, but we could
not make the transaction of 100.000. 00O a
year in the securities bought by this com
pany without using syndicates.
Cromwell's Personal Profits.
The acknowledgment of personal prorlt3
was made In a tabulated statement which
was presented to the committee after re
cess. It showed that Mr. Cromwell had
made a personal profit of $26,371 from syn
dicate operations during- the last five
years. In which he Individually and the
Mutual Life Insurance Company had par
ticipated. Mr. Hughes, chief counsel of the com
mittee. Immediately took up an estimate
of these sj'ndicate transactions in an ef
fort to ascertain the manner in which
these profits, were obtained. An Interest
ing point was brought out in probing a
transaction In the Pennsylvania Railroad
V& convertible bonds. Mr. Cromwell made
no personal profit, he stated, adding:
"Of course, we are greatly interested in
the Pennsylvania Railroad. I might say
wo are the heaviest stockholders."
Answering Mr. Hughes. Mr. Cromwell
said the holdings of the Mutual in the
Pennsylvania Railroad were 55,000,000 par.
Among these transactions the connection
of trust companies with the Mutual was
brought out when it was stated that the
1.000,000 subscription to a Japanese loan
was shared by the United States Mort
gage & Trust Company andthe Guaran
tee Trust Company. In explaining this.
Mr. Cromwell said:
AVhy Trust Companies Are Favored.
We gave thene opportunities to the trust
companies In which we held large interests
for very good reasons. We. as an insurance,
company, need very large banking facilities
for very large Interests. It goes without say
ing that it Is better for us to use our "own
companies than to give to Institutions with
wnlch we bave no connection the handling of
our large nvestments. For this reason we put
men Into the directorate of these subrtdtary
companies to look after the Interests of the
Mutual. They are not there for the profit or
the Interest on the paltry 100 shares they have
to hold, but to protect the Mutual. It is
natural we should wish to put In as directors
of these companies the same men v as are on
tbe board of the Mutual. I bave 100 abodes In
these companies ""as a dlreetor. byt 1 have
never made any secret of it.
A result of our connection with tswe com
panies In that In 14 yaro we bave made
through them a profit of 10O,00O,00O for tbe
This being the status of the case. It Is na
tural we should help these subsidiary com
panies to make money and should throw op
portunities la their way. The men we put In
them are not there for their own. profit. They
never get a.dollar out of the Mutual unfairly
and every cent they make through these truot,
coropan!c and banks for the Mutual Is for the
All for Policy-Holders Good.
Just before closing the Inquiry for the
day Mr. Hughes s'aidr
"We had some talk this morning in con
nection with another Insurance company's
joint uccounts. Have you any of these-r"
"No. sir; we bave not and. never have
bad,' replied Mr. CromwelL "We have no
partners in our investments;, thai Is, any
Investmehts we make are made by the
Mutual Life, and what is done for the
Mutual Life Is done for the policy-hold-,
Questioned further along this line, Mr.
Cromwell told of the syndicate transac
tions. "Have you any non-ledger assets?"
queried Mr. Hughes.
. "We have two one for $11,000 and the
other for' $500. We have a memorandum
of them with the finance committee, but
they are not counted as assets. They are
some shares that have no face value at
present, and we have been holding them
for any result that may accrue.
Mr. Cromwell said the Mutual had never
before these two questionable assets had
any non-ledger securities within the past
21 years. The session closed with Mr.
Cromwell still on the stand.
Imnglnnry Prorit on Books.
Frederick H. Shlpman. assistant treas
urer for the last three years of the New
York Life Insurance Company, was the
first witness today. He was examined on
syndicate accounts. The Toronto, Hamil
ton & Buffalo deals were the first taken
ud. and the accounta were gone into In
"How could the New York Life," asked
Mr. Hughes, "rotlre Toronto. Hamilton &.
Buffalo bonds from the syndicate at 93
when it had bought them while in the
. syndicate at 91?"
' "Because the market price In tho opin
ion of C. M. Gibbs, the treasurer at the
time, was then 99. We credited the profit,
1 J44.9S5, to profit and loss."
f Mr. Shlpman In reply to further ques
tions, said; the company raised the price
- from 91 tb 99, but that the profit had
never been realized, and the company
holds the bonds at the present time.
"The New York Life In this case," said
i Mr. Hughes, "did not return bonds, as is
customary, to the syndicate members, but
' took them themselves and credited on the
i books a profit, which, in fact, has not
f been made I" v
Next Mr. Hughes turned to the Joint
', i account of Gpldman, Sachs & Co., and
the New York Life in 1839.
"The account was created in ordor to
Invest In Chicago & Northwestern Rail
road bonds with an agreement for equal
division of profits. Mr. Shlpman said, it
should not be called a syndicate.
"How can you explain that on July IS.
1S99, you buy and sell 750 bonds "on tho
same day according to your statement?"
asked Mr. Hughes.
"The only way I can explain It," Mr.
Shlpman replied, Jls that the New York
Life held these 'bonds and wished to sell
them. Therefore It named a fair price
and transferred them to a Joint account,"
"Now don't you see the purchase Is not
for the syndicate but for the New York
Life Insurance Company?"
"I can't say, it was six years ago."
Divides -Profiss With Syndicates.
"Is it fair to say that the New York
Life enters into an agreement with others
and provides the money for the purchase
1-of the bonds and then gives the members
of the syndicate tho profits of the sale?"
"Does it mean that the New York Life
pays one-half of the profits to bankers
to" get them to handle tho syndicates?"
"Yes, I think It is sometimes advisable
In. order tq get the business."

CHICAGO. Sept. 13. (Special.) Tho
above philosophical deductions are made
by Stanley Sobleszclk. confessed bigamist.
In relating hia experience with two fam
ilies on a salary of $13.50 a week. By phil
osophy anu strict economy Sobleszclk
managed for four months to exist In ap
parent happiness, dividing his time be
tween two West Side homes. Out of the
discovery of his dual life has come the
Imprisonment of Sobleszclk, the grief of
two women who believed him true and a
life of hardship in future for one of the
women and her five little ones.
There was no system about Sobleszcik's
expenditures on the two homes. He spent
his money as he got It and, when It
was gone, he went, without complaint un
til, he sot more.
"It there was any shortage any week,
I made ray second wife stand for It," he
explained today at the county jail. She
had friends. My other wife had nobody
to help her. I thought it was right to
take the best care of my first family."
Caused by Street Pllrtatlon.
Sobleszclk declares his second marriage
resulted from a street flirtation. Three
years ago he worked as a blacksmith in
West Lake street. Across the street was
a factory where Kate Galus worked. They
met on the street once, he says, and there
began the acquaintance which ended In
Sobleszcik's being drawn Into a bigamous
"I couldn't get out of marrying Kate,"
said Sobleszclk. "She would have me.
I finally married her to keep her from
jumping In the lake. There'3 no sense of
a man trying to get away when a woman
gets hold of him. It's all off then."
It was three days after the marriage
with Miss Galus at St. Wenceslas Church
before Sobleszclk could get free to return
to his Paulina-street home.
" 'I suppose you've been away having
a good time with your friends again, my
wife remarked to me," said the prisoner.
"I did not say anything back. I turned
over and went to sleep."
"Did she keep on talking?"
Kept Qnlet and Let Her Talk.
"Women always keep on talking;" said
Sobleszclk, "and when a man's wife talks
he better keep still. If I'd talked bacK
she'd have knocked my head with a
poker. I kept quiet and let her talk."
The prisoner Insisted he would not
have stayed away from his children
any longer than the three days he gave
up to his honeymoon with his new
wife. The new Mrs. Soblesczik proved
a Jealous woman. On his return to her
home, after three day3 at his first home,
she demanded tearfully to know where
hor husband had been.
"I would Just laugh at her when she
wanted to know where I stayed." said
Soblesczik. T wouldn't tell her anything-.
Then she'd talk and scold for
hours. A jealous womkn is like a tom
cat. She will yowl all night and let
3Iore "Women, More Trouble.
'The more women a man has, the
more trouble. They all want money. I
got along- all right, though, for, when
I was out of money, that was all there
waa to it. I was short all the time, but,
when I was, I had to stand for It.
"My worst trouble was arranging- my
hours so the women 'wouldn't leari
about each other. I got a good system
worked but. I would go to see Kate
after work and stay until late In the
evening-. Then I'd go home, and the
next evening; I'd go home for a few
hours -and then go back to Kate. But
It was no use; they found me out at
last and I ( don't know as I'm sorry. The
buslness of trying- to keep two women
happy all the time was too much for
me. It mude me nervous."
Wives 3reet nnd Compare Xotes.
Sobesczik'a wives met and compared
notes In Justice Severson's court while
waiting; for a chance to testify against
the man. who Is held In default of $3000
ball. "Each had an infant and they
learned there Is only nine days' differ
ence in the ages of the children, wh6
have been named Walter and John. The
little ones so closely resemble one an
other tnat some persons in the court
room thought them to be twins.
