first week of December, if the ordinary
season of mild weather here prevails.
It la Mr. Taft". determination to nt
himself by ridinfr and itolf for the
strenuous duties which await mm in

Miss Boardman. of Washinftton, prcsl
ilent of the National Red Cross, to at

though hla plar.s have not been deter

to Augusta. Ga.. to take a cottage and
remain durtnc the Winter. The Taft
family plrysietan In Cincinnati has rec
ommended the Georgia city as the ideal
place for outdoor exercise during the
Winter. The air Is said to have enough
of the sting of cold to thicken the blood
rnd to be mild enough to make It pleas
ant in the open.
Cabinet Seat for Hitt-hcock.
There will be a general post-election
conference tomorrow between Mr. Taft
and National Chairman Hitchcock, who
has given notice that he will be here.
Mr. Hitchcock has been freqtiently
mentioned as the probable Postmaster-
general in the Taft Cabinet, and, while
Mr. Taft has so far dc-ferred taking up
matters of state since the election, it
.is not unlikely that an understanding
will be reached between the chairman
and his chief.
The long drouth and continued for.
est fires in the mountains adjacent to
the Homestead Hotel made It expedient
today to start backfires In the hills
surrounding the hotel. These have pro
duced a pall of smoke over the place.
The weather is mild and pleasant. Mr.
Taft played his morning game of golf
with Governor-elect Draper, of Mas
sachusetts. and went riding on his fa
vorlto sadd!c-horse this afternoon.
Why Taft riajs Golf.
Playing golf Is a serious work with
Mr. Taft. as he has explained.
"A man of my build requires exer
else in the open air." he said, "and
exercise to be beneficial must be enter
taining. of course. 1 can ride, but one
cannot maintain a keen interest In rid
ing a horse. In golf there is just
ennurh skiM required to get up a keen
interest in the game and take up your
thoughts while you are getting a five
or six-mile walk.
Mr. Txft maintains golf is not a rich
man's game. In Scotland, he said, it is
jtlayed by all the population.

TOBACCO STOCK DROPS
FALLS 3 2 POINTS RESULT OF
Wild Break of Trust's Common
Starts Scramble on Stock
NEW YORK. Nov. 9. A sensational
break of 32 points In the price of th
common stock of the American Tobacco
Company on the curb today resulted In
a sharp reaction in prices of leading ac
tiym stocks during the first hour's bid
ding on the New York Stock Exchange.
The violent decline in tobacco stocks was
attributed to the decision of the United
States District Court declaring that the
American Tobacco Company was a com
bination In restraint of trade which was
given after the close of the stock market
on Saturday. The last price for Tobacco
common on Saturday was 3 5, and its
high price for last wek was 390, but dur
ng the first hour of trading on the curb
market today it sold down to 343. The
price of American Tobacco preferred on
the Stock Kx change fell 31. the 4 per
cnt bonds 2Vs, and the 6 per cent bonds
3 points. Not only did the decision of
the court cause grave anxiety as to the
scope of the Sherman law. but the un
favorable situation was aggravated by a
pmfit-taking movement by last week's
buyers, who flooded the market with sell
A majority of the leading active stocks
sold 1 to IV lower than Saturday In the
course of the first hour. These included
U. S. Steel. Amalgamated Copper, Ameri
ran Smelting and the railroads, except
Great Northern preferred and several of
the Eastern trunk lines, coalers and
Southern railway stocks.
A vigorous rally followed during the
second hour, when new points of strength
developed and established handsome net
gains in those stocks over Saturday s
Missouri Pacific was conspicuous with
a rise of 2V.
The later stock market showed a sub
sidence of the acute apprehension man!
fested earlier over the scope of the Amer
ican Tobacco decision. Operations were
resumed on the long side of tTie market
and prices were marked up aggressively
here and there with the effect of restor-
ng the general level to Saturday's clos
ing or above, heading and a group of
coalers, the Rock Island stocks and
American Sugar were amongst the con
splruous stocks besides the Gould group

LONDON, Nov. 9. Prime Minister Her

speaker at the Guildhall banquet tonight
which marked the inauguration of the
new Lord Mayor of London, Sir George
Wyatt Truscott, and brought to a fitting
close the celebration of the King's 67th
The Prime Minister devoted his ob
servations mainly to the European situa

the person of Turkish Ambassador Mur
sus Pasha, on the success of the most
amazing revolution In history, he de
clared that, subject to the principle that
international treaties could not be al
tered except by the consent of all the
signatories, the British government had
no prejudice or preference in favor. ;of
any particular settlement.
All Powers Mast Sign.
It had never objected to direct negotia
tions between Austria and Bulgaria and
Turkey, always providing that Turkey,
as the most prejudiced, should have a
settlement consistent with her honor and
interests and that the agreement -must
be countersigned by ail parties to the
.One of the happiest results of the An
glo-Ruseian convention, he said, was
that both countris had been able to ap
proach the Near Eastern question on the
same viewpoint and discuss frankly and
sympathetically the sudden crisis that
had arisen. His Majesty's government
considered that Russia had behaved with
the greatest restraint under exceedingly
trying circumstances In following a policy
of non-intervention in Persia.
On Good Terms With Germany.
Just a year ago the German Emperor,
while on a visit to England, emphatically
declared himself animated by a desire
for friendship with Great Britain and the
maintenance of the peace of Europe.
"It was the spirit," said Mr. Asquith,
"that guided all the negotiations between
the two countries concerning the present
differences, and if. as I believe, the other
powers are animated by a similar spirit,

corporate from private schools, Justice
Harlan, In his dissenting opinion, said the
court should meet the entire question
squarely and decide whether it were a
crime, under any conditions, to educ- te
white children and negro children at the
same institution. He did not concede
that it should be so regarded.
Aims at Penal Provision.
"Have we." he asked, "become so In
noculated with prejudice of race that an
American Government, professedly based
on the principles of freedom and charged
with the protection of all citizens alike,
can make distinctions between such citi
zens in the matter of their voluntary
association for innocent purposes, simply
because of their respective races?
"Further, if the lower court be right-
then a state may make it a crime for
while and colored persons to frequent the
same market places at the same time, or
appear In an assemblage of citizens con
vened to consider questions of a public
or a political nature in which all citizens,
without regard to race, are equally Interested."
Justice Harlan added that he did not
want to be understood as criticising the
system of separate public schools for the
races, but that his censure was directed
at the penal provision of the Kentucky
law involved in this case.

WALLACE, Idaho, Nov. 9. (Special.)
This afternoon an investigation was neld
by Fire Chief Fred Kelly, as to the cause
of the fire in the "Western Hotel early
this morning, in which a young miner
named CurtiB lost his .life, and which
caused damages to the extent of $6000.
Evidence points to the fact that the
blaze was the result of a well-conceived
plan by an incendiary.
At the inquest it was shown beyond
dispute that no fire was visible In the
building at the time the alarm was
rung in to the department, from an en
tirely different section of the town, and
about a half mile distant from the hotel.
At the same time It was shown that the
gates of the flumes supplying the city
with water had been pulled open and
thrown about 24 feet away Into the brush,
thereby reducing the water supply of the
town to a minimum. '
