Chicago Democrat Can Stand
!t No Longer, So Joins
Ieclares Success of Democracy
Cnder Present Radical Leader
ship Would Spell Disaster
for State and Katlon.
CHICAGO, Aug. 25. (Special.) "The
Democratic party, National and local,
has been sold out to Hearstisrn and dem
agogues. It has lost its moral force. Its
temper is destructive Instead of obstruc
tive. I can no longer consider myself a
With this general Indictment against
the Democratic party, with which he has
been identified since he became of age,
Charles Werno, chairman of the Council
committee on traction, and one of the
brainiest and biggeBt Democrats of the
West, bids farewell to his former asso
ciates. Last week he Joined the Hamil
ton Club, a widely known Republican or
ganization. 1
"I am not in sympathy with Democracy
as at present constituted," he said to
night. "Party machinery in Chicago
stands for absolutely nothing. It has
stood for nothing that meant a forward
step for the last three years to my per
sonal knowledge. It has madly and
blindly opposed all constructive measures
which have become public issues and of
fered nothing in their place. In short,
the Democratic party as now constituted
is thoroughly dominated by the radical
element controlled by Hearst and Hearst
Ism. "Success of Democracy, locally, state
or Nationally, under existing conditions
within the party would mean disaster.
The Republican party stands for progress
and wants to accomplish things. I desire
to be associated with such an element."
Commoner Editor Comments on
, Roosevelt's Latest Speech.
LINCOLN, Neb., Aug. 25. (Special.)
William J. Bryan, In the fortheomlnsr
Issue of the Commoner, makes a vigor
ous attack on President Roosevelt's
plan for a National Incorporation law
for all corporations engaged in Inter
state business. Mr. Bryan sees in this
a sctieme to help the railroads rather
than the shippers and producers, and
calls on all Democrats In Congress to
oppose any legislation to this effect.
"The President has at last disclosed
his scheme for centralization, at which
he has hinted in former speeches," says
Mr. Bryan.
"In his Provincetown, Mass, address
he proposes the National incorporation
of railroads and other corporations en
gaged in interstate commerce.
Laws Sufficient for Control.
"Most large corporations do a busi
ness that is not confined to any one
state. Experience has shown that the
efforts to control these corporations
by mere state action cannot produce
wholesome results.
"I believe in a National incorporation
law for corporations engaged In Inter
state business. I believe, furthermore,
that the need for action is most press
ing as regards those corporations,
which, because they are cor.imon car
riers, exercise a quasi public function;
and which can be completely controlled
in ail respects, by the Federal Govern
ment by the exercise of the power con
ferred under the Interstate commerce
clause, and, if necessary, under the post
road clause of the Constitution.
"The National Government should
exercise over them a simlliar super
vision and control to that which it
exercises over National banks. We can
do this only by proceeding farther
along the lines marked out by the
recent National legislation.
Demand Federal Protection.
"Here is the secret It is out at last:
The states are annoying the corporations
and the corporations demand Federal pro
tection from state legislation. The Presi
dent thinks that action is most pressing
as regard those corporations which, be
cause they are common carriers, exercise
a quasi public function.
"The states have been enacting 2-cent
fare laws and laws reducing- freight
rates, and the railroad managers demand
that they shall be relieved from further
fear of such legislation. The President's
Hamiltonlan Ideas make him an easy vic
tim, and "he yields to the entreaties of
the railroads. .
"If it was the public he sought to pro
tect he would recommend Federal reme.
dies which would not Interfere with state
remedies; but it Is the railroad, not the
public, that demands the removal of
authority to Washington.
Stands up for States' Rights.
"The Democrats can be depended on.
to oppose with all their might this move
ment toward centralization. If any Demo
crat wavers, his constituents should look
Into his business relations and see
whether he is under obligations to any
railroad. A Hamiltonlan Republican like
the President may honestly think tuat
the further the Government is removed
from the people the better it will be, for
a Jeffersontan Democrat does not cherish
any such delusion. Even the Hamiltonlan
Republican ought to hesitate to trust
Congress with any more power while
United States Senators are elected by
"It is fortunate that the people have
had an object lesson so recently. The
Federal law stopped pasBes and rebates.
But tne railroads make more money than
they did before. The states, on the other
hand, gave the people a reduction in
rates, and those who are receiving the
benefit will be slow to surrender the ad
vantage thus far gained. It Is very doubt
ful whether the Republican Congressmen
from the West will dare to support the
President's proposition, but If an attempt
is made to put such a measure through
Congress the Democrats will stand a good
chance of retiring every Western Repub
lican who votes for It.
"Let the Democrats present an un
broken front on this vital proposition."
American Companies Forced to Re
fuse European Orders.
PHILADELPHIA. Aug. 25. Because of
its Inability to fill the order, the Philadel
phia & Reading Coal & Iron Company
was compelled to decline a contract for
35.000 tons of anthracite, the order for
which was tendered by a representative
of the Austro-Hungarian Chamber of
Commerce. The proposed purchaser was
willing to pay the regular price for plac
ing the coal on board vessels either here
or in New York.
' Another order for 200.000 tons of bi
tuminous coal, wanted by the Italian
government, is also being offered to the
largest soft coal operators of the United
States, with little prospect of its being
taken, because of the great expense in
delivering it to its destination.
The great demand for coal by foreign
governments is attributed to the increased
coal consumption by their warships. AH
native coal Is being used for this purpose,
and the supply is not equal to the de
mand. An officer of the Reading Com
pany explained that this company would
be compelled to decline all such orders
because of the great demand tor coal
among customers In this country and be
cause of the scarcity of labor at the col
lieries. The same conditions confronted
every other anthracite company as well
as all bituminous operators.
It was further explained that the short
age is Increasing daily, and many West
ern railroads are now much disturbed
concerning the supply for the coming
Winter. Men who formerly worked In the
mines are seeking employment in less
dangerous lines of business. . Many have
abandoned mining as a means of liveli
hood and have turned to -farming in
Western states. Foreigners who formerly
came to the United States to take up
mining now seek employment In other
fields of labor.
Parliament Will Be Prorogued This
Week With Many of King's
Promise Brakes,
LONDON. Aug. 25. Of the many mea
sures promised In the King's speech, at
the opening of the present session of
Parliament, which will be prorogued next
week,, few have reached the statute
Like the educational bill and the plural
voting bill, the most prominent measures
of the last session, and which were
thrown out by the House of Lords, the
Irish Council bill, which was to have
been the most important piece of legisla
tion at this session, met with early de
feat, but In a different way. The educa
tional and plural voting bills gave the
Liberals an opening for a campaign
against the House of Loras, which, as
indicated In the speeches of Herbert H.
Asqulth, ex-Home Secretary, Rich
ard B. Haldane, Secretary of State for
War, Chief Secretary for Ireland Birrell
and Winston Churchill, at various meet
ings throughout the country Saturday
night, is to be carried on vigorously dur
ing the recess.
Despite differences, between the two
houses, much useful legislation has be
come law, among the most notable
changes In the statutes being that
brought about by the deceased wife's sis
ter bill, which was Introduced at the be
hest of the Nonconformists and accepted
by both houses, in opposition to the
wishes of the bishops and their follow
ers. One of the most notable measures of
the session, and one of great interest to
American meat packers, was the Burns
food bill, which both houses passed unan
imously. In addition, bins have been
passed creating a court of criminal ap
peal, & rather radical reform In the
criminal laws in England, amending the
merchant-shipping act, changing the pat
ent act, thoroughly reforming the army
system and enacting a system of small
holdings in England.
The labor members of the House of
Commons have not been so Insistent for
legislation In favor of the masses, ex
pressing themselves as content to assist
the government to deal with the labor
question, which In their opinion Is the
root of the evils from which the workers
suffer. They, therefore, have another
grudge against the House of Lords for
compelling the withdrawal of the Scot
tish small landholdlngs bill, and while
their platform calls for the abolition of
the upper house, they will support less
radical Liberal proposals.
Moorish -Government Has Degene

PARIS, Aug. 25. Advices received today

Meantime the state of Morocco's inter

has degenerated Into a mere mock ad

a member of which is Mulai Bidi Mo

Ralsull controls his own region, and the
pretender rules Northeast Morocco. The
Sultan Is not sure of his own followers

tribesmen who are ready to swoop down
upon it at the first opportunity. Euro

Wall Street Rallies From Recent De
pression in Stock Market.
NEW YORK. Aug. 25. The feeling of
apprehension with which the stock mar
ket began the week has been replaced
by calmer Judgment. There was much
less liquidation and few signs, save in
Isolated instances, of selling by those
whose margins were impaired or whose
confidence in the future had fallen to a
lower point.
Such Improvement as was shown, how
ever, was largely sentimental, based on
the belief that prices have discounted all
the more adverse conditions that may
arise, and that henceforth there will be
less of political agitation, or at least less
response on the part of Investors to what
have formerly been regarded as disturb
ing policies. The speeches of Secretary
Taft at Columbus on Monday and of
President Roosevelt at Providence Town
Tuesday were read with great interest in
Wall street, but the effect on the market
was slight.
Much more interest attached to the
general credit situation since it became
apparent that the market was slowly but
surely divorcing itself from purely politi
cal considerations. Bankers, who look at
conditions from a better vantage point
than the average outsider, are more im
pressed with the idea that the trouble
through which the market nas been pass
ing Is International In character, and that
it Is the close relations between the
money markets of this country and those
of Europe that have produced the tension
here. Our markets have not only had to
absorb the liquidation of American share
holders, but have been forced to accept
securities to the value of many millions
of dollars from investors scattered all
over Europe. England, Germany, France
and Holland have greatly reduced their
holdings of American securities until now
they are probably at the lowest level in
some years. Further, the high rates for
money abroad have reduced the borrow
ing capacity of this country in "a field
from which large amounts of capital are
annually drawn.
Filer in High Finance Leaves Con
gregation $300,000 the Loser.
PITTSBURG, Pa., Aug. 25. (Special.)-
Rev. John H. Norris. pastor of Pente
costal Church at Mount Washington
suburb, took a flier in high finance which
cost him and the members of his con
gregation $300,000. Members of Pastor
Norris' flock until yesterday had dreams
of becoming millionaires. Now they are
wondering whether they are going to get
back any of their money.
. The true state of affairs became known
when Mrs. William Watters, who invested
S1O.000 in Dr. Norris' enterprise, started
suit to recover her money. ,
Dr. Norris promoted a mining company
and had offices of his concern in the
basement of his church. With $300,000
obtained from the sale of stock, he bought
1000 acres of Ohio land containing both
coal and fireclay. A development com
pany was formed to exploit the land but
that venture did not succeed, and the
pastor formed a Are brick concern. This
was no more successful, and the pastor
then bought a silver mine. This scheme
went the way of others and finally &
receiver was appointed.

Large Audience Gathers to Participate
In Benefit for Portland Jewish
Free School.
Interesting ceremonies marked the
beginning and completion of the holy
scroll at the Neighborhood House, on
First and Hall streets, yesterday after,
noon. The large hall in which the ex
ercises were held was crowded with
the parents and friends of the pupils
of the Portland Jewish free school. The
completion of the scroll or Seyum Ha
Farah. as it is called in Hebrew, is
quite an event, as it occurs only when
the scroll is brought 10 this country.
The success of the afternoon was
largely due to the Rev. J. Seidel, super
intendent of the schaol, who took this
opportunity of informally examining
the pupils receiving instruction there.
Little children of both sexes, of per
haps 5 to 7 years of age conversed in
classical Hebrew with their instructors.
This is all the more remarkable as
the school has been In existence only
a few months. Most of the pupils are
the children of immigrants from Rus
sia and have taken the opportunity of
learning both Hebrew and English in
the school. After conversing in He
brew, at the request of those present
they translated their conversation into
The first speaker was Rabbl Jonah
B. Wise, who delivered an earnest talk,
impressing on those present the sacred
occasion and telling them of the ne
cessity of proper education of the
children so aa to fit them for higher
citizenship in the land of their adop
tion. The mention of freedom in the
United States brought forth rounds of
Following the address of Dr. Wise,
Rev. Mr. Seidel introduced P. T.
Rogoway, who distributed the honors
connected with the completion of the
scroll. In his Introductory remarks
Rev, Seidel acknowledged with thanks
the use of the Neighborhood House,
which was tendered by the Council of
Jewish Women of this city. Quits an
amount for the benefit of the school
was realized from the ceremony of
writing on the scroll.
Rabbl J. Bloch spoke of the virtues
of self-help and praised those present
for the Interest they are taking "in the
school and asked them to continue their
support He announced that Dr. Wise
had promised to see that a building
is erected for the school. The exam
ination of the children then followed.
After the examination, a pleasing mus
ical programme was rendered.
At the close of the ceremonies Rev.
Seidel was surrounded by the audience,
who congratulated him upon the show
ing made. The use of the scroll was
donated by Dr. N. Mosessohn. It will
be usea also during the high holidays
of the Jews at the services which will
be held by Rev. Seidel in the Neighbor
hood House.

Yuan Shih Kai,' when urged to as
sume office In the central government,
before consenting to accept, named the
fullflllment of certain changes relating
to the affairs of the War Department
as a condition. The Dowager Empress
has summoned Chang Shi Tug and
Yuan Shih Kai to consider the alarm
ing growth of anti-Manchu sentiment.
Several Viceroys and Governors have
been memorializing the throne to ex
plain the cause of such sentiment.
The growing popular enmity is as
cribed to the failure of the Dowager'e
three edicts in the past six years, re
moving the distinctions between Chi
nese and Manchus in lnter-marrlage,
abolishing the partiality shown to
Manchus in law, and prevntlng the fa
voritism shown Manchus in appoint

Manchu Governor, En Ming, by Chinese
and Dr. Sun Yat Sens' captured corre
spondence have greatly excited the
court. The correspondence of the re
former. Dr. Sun Yat Sens, urged that

toward placing Yuan Shih Kai at the
head of all defense.
