EPITHETS IN INSURANCE
(Continued from First Page.)
Charles A. Peabody. of 'that company, to
day secured from the Franklin County
Circuit Court an Injunction directed
against State Insurance Commissioner
Prewitt, restraining him from revoking
the company's license to do business in
the Kentucky field. The notice of injunc
tion was served on the Commissioner to
day. Mr. Prewitt, however, stated" that
the license was revoked last night.
In a statement issued this afternoon
in support of his action revoking the
license, J. M. Prewitt says the position
of the present management of that com
pany in endeavoring to elect the admin
istration candidates for trustees is op
pressive, dictatorial and unlawful, and
a company thus managed should not be
permitted further to Insure the lives of
the people of the state. In part the
I regard the plan of procedure of Mr.
Peabody and of his colleagues as being de
structive of the essential features of mu
tuality, as tending to prevent a full, fair and
free presentation ff the policy-holders'
lights to them by those who are best in
the position to know who the policy-holders
are and what their Interests are; that
such .action Is contrary to the spirit of the
charter of the company, "and, if tolerated,
would destroy absolutely the mutual feature.
The present policy-holders of the company
can In no way be affected by my action. A
continuation of the authority heretofore
granted the company would be an Indorse

managements of this company. . .

LOUISVILLE. Ky., Nov. 9. Judge
Charles Grubbs, chief counsel in Ken

"None of the officers of the company

JEROME POSTPONES ACTION
Does Not Want to Influence Ectlon
of Mutual Life Officers.
NEW YORK, Nov. 9. Ex-Supreme
Court Justice D. Cady Herrick, general
counsel for the Mutual Life Policyholders'
Association, received a letter today from
District Attorney Jerome, in which that
official says that he has determined to
postpone consideration of the charge of
coercion preferred against the officers of
the Mutual Life Insurance Company until
after December 18. when the polls for the
election of officers of that company shall
have been closed.
Recently the Policyholders' Association,
through Herrick. filed with Jerome affi
davits by T. Reid Fell, of this city, and
E. O. Summon, of Springfield, Mass., "ex
general agents of the Mutual Life, alleg
ing that they had been dismissed from its
service because they refused to assist the
administration in electing its ticket. Later
Justice Herrick filed with Jerome evidence
to support the affidavits.
Jerome says, in the, letter made public
today, that the question of law involved
is a very close one. Otherwise he would
at once Institute proceedings against the
company. He adds that he fears that any
present action by him would be used to
influence the election, hence his desire for
RABBITS INSTEAD OF BEEF
Austrian Butchers Will Try to Force
Importation of American Cattle.
VIENNA, Nov. 9. (Special.) Organized
opposition to the government's attitude
on the meat questions is to be started by
the butchers next week. The Minister of
Agriculture has already curtly refused the
request from the butchers to permit ex
perimental importation of 250 American
cattle, to try the quality of the trans
Atlantic product. Now the butchers pro
pose to see if popular agitation cannot
force the government to yield.
The present supply of cattle in Austria
Hungary Is 1.500.000 below the normal.
Such is the scarcity that dealers are sub
stituting rabbits for beef.

Stone, Get-Rich-Quick Man,
Seen in Cincinnati.
HAS NO FEAR OF ARREST
One of Storey Cotton Gang Talks
Blitliely of His Travels and In
dictment Says He Cannot
CINCINNATI. Nov. 9. Franklin Stone,
formerly of Philadelphia, and now "iving
Paris as his home, who Is wanted by the
Government on an indictment charging
misuse of (the mails by the Storey -otton
Company, involving the loss of several
millions of dollars, was in Cincinnati to
day, but disappeared before the officials
could apprehend him.
Last year the Philadelphia papers be
gan an exposure at the get-rich-quick
concerns in that city, and among them
the Storey Cotton Company was named.
A run on that concern followed and fin
ally its failure was announced with lia
bilities of about $7,000,000. Indictments
were returned against Stone and F.
Ewart Storey, president of bhe company.
Both had disappeared, however, as also
had Mrs. Sophia Lang, the stenographer.
The cfflcials failed to locate them, al
though they were heard from in various
parts of the world.
Has No Fear of Arrest.
Stone was reported to be In this city
yesterday, and was finally located and
subjected to an interview today. He said
Paris was now his home and that he had
several big deals on hand. Asked If he
was afraid of arrest, he said:
"Well, I have never been arrested yet.
More Americans in Paris know me than
know the American Ambassador. I am
not trying to hide. I am not wanted now
by the Federal officers, if ever I was
wanted by them. I send more broken
down Americans home with first-class
tickets than any other American In
Says Cannot Be Convicted.
"I sailed abroad a week before the
Storey Cotton Company went into bank
ruptcy. Uncle Sam has no case against
me. I was not connected with that con
cern at all and I knew nothing of being
indicted until I arrived on the other side.
I am charged with misuse of the mails.
That is not an extraditable offense and
consequently Uncle. Sam has never both

have been withdrawn, as far as I am
concerned, although i really believe I
was never considered as involveJB more
than as a possible witness.
"The fact is, .no person connected with
the Storey Cotton Company can be con
victed, simply because every person who
deposited money--with that concern signed
a contract permitting the company to in
vest his money in whatsoever it saw fit."
Mr. Stone said that Storey was living in
London, but was in very poor Tiealth.
LAND OBTAINED BY FRAUD
CHARGE AGAINST UTAH COAL
Blunders of Federal Officials Made
Possible Purchase of Valuable
Land for Mere Song.
SALT LaKE CITY, Nov. 9. Arguments
in the cases in which the Federal Gov
ernment seeks to recover 17.000 acres of
coal land alleged to have been fradulently
secured by coal companies controlled in
the interest of the Denver & Rio Grande
Railway system, were continued in the
Federal Court today before Judge John
Fred R. Maynard, of Grand Rapids,
Mich., Special United States Attorney,
made the principal argument for the
prosecution in reply to the points raiseu
by the defense in demurrer. Mr. Maynard
charged that tae Interior Department had
made gross blunders in permitting title
to this coal land to pass to the coal com
panies and that, inasmuch as the care
lessness and blunders of officials of the
department had made it possible for the
companies to secure patents by fraud
and deceit, the Government was not
barred from seeking redress in the courts.
He charged the Utah Land Board with
extravagant and wanton procedure in Its
dealing with the Coal companius, by
which they were permitted to buy valu
able coal deposits as agricultural and
grazing lands. He maintained also that
the men who took up such coal land as
agricultural land, paying $1.25 an acre
for land worth thousands of dollars, were
employes of the company. There was a
conspiracy, he charged, and the Govern
ment was entitled to redress through
E, B. Critchlow, of Salt Lake City, also
a Special Attorney for the Government,
cited authorities to show the Govern
ment's right to cancel patents wrongfully

(Concluded From First Page.)
stood by the President "better than the Re
publicans, the admirers of the President
very naturally gave weight to his appeal for
a Republican Congress, although in making
the appeal the President put a personal victory
above the reforms which he has been advo
cating. Two year3 from now that appeal
will be of no avail, for the President will
not be in office after March 4, 1000. Even
if he were a candidate which no friend of
his can assume after his repeated declara
tions he would have to confront the thlrfi
term issue, and who would say that that
issue alone would not lose the President
enough votes to make his race hopeless?
The popular vote as indicated by the Con-
gresMonal elections shows that the Repub
licans eran now have a narrow margin to
g on and that margin will be quickly wiped
olt if the President allows himself to be
drawn Into a race for a third term.

Democratic Legislative Candidate In
Lewis Will Contest.
CHBHALIS. Wash., Nov. 9. (Special.)-
Complete unofficial returns from Lewis
County election show that George Mc
Coy, Republican, has defeated J. G.
Startup, Democrat, for Representative by
3 majority, by a vote of 1566 to 1563. Big
Boom returns received this evening gave

suit of the official count, which will likely
begin Monday, it is probable that there
will be a contest.
Mr. Startup stated this evening that he
