TOO MUCH HEARST FOR PARTY'S GOOD Chicago Democrat Can Stand !t No Longer, So Joins Republicans WERNO IS FOR PROGRESS 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 Democrat." 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." SEES DOOM TO STATES' RIGHTS 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 Legislatures. "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." HAVE NO COAL FOR EXPORT 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. VV A R ON HOUSE OF LORDS ENGLISH LIBERALS PLAPf A VIG OROUS CAMPAIGN. ' 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 books. 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. STATE OF CHAOS IN MOROCCO Moorish -Government Has Degene rated Into Mock Administration. PARIS, Aug. 25. Advices received today from Casa Blanca show no change in the situation. The troops are anxious for an engagement with the tribesmen, but France's determination not to penetrate far into the country prevents pursuit of the fanatics end results in a waiting game. Meantime the state of Morocco's inter national affairs Is growing .worse. Veri table chaos reigns and the government has degenerated Into a mere mock ad ministration. Mulai Hafig, the newly pro claimed Sultan, who is reported to be marching toward the coast to fight the French troops, has appointed a ministry, a member of which is Mulai Bidi Mo hammed, another brother of the actual Sultan, who Is now held a prisoner by the Sultan at Fez. Ralsull controls his own region, and the pretender rules Northeast Morocco. The Sultan Is not sure of his own followers and anarchy pervades the empire. The coast towns are tranquil because of the presence of foreign warships, but Rabat is reported to be constantly menaced by tribesmen who are ready to swoop down upon it at the first opportunity. Euro peans dare not pass outside the walls of Rabat and other cities.'-, COXFERS WITH THE CABINET Premier Clemencean Back to Direct Affairs in Morocco Case. PARIS. Aug. 25.

Divi dend and interest disbursements in Sep tember will amount to about J65.000.000. This compares most favorably with any previous September. Sixty-four railroads, industrial and public service corporations have declared dividends payable next month to the amount of J29.336.489.

RETURNS TO SAFER BASIS 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. PASTOR FLEECES FLOCK 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 English. 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 applause. 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. STRONGER ARMY.

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 ments to office. The murder of the 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 China's undivided duty w.as to exter minate the Manchu power. These rev elations have disposed the Dowager toward placing Yuan Shih Kai at the head of all defense.

Walton was standing at the end of the mill and had the presence of mind to fall backward. He struck on the ground 12 feet below uninjured. Only the fact that the flying slab struck a pulley, which partially checked its force, gave Walton time to fall, and to tht3 circumstance he probably owes his life.
