Tennessee Factions Take Op
. posite Views of Car- .
mack Killing- ; . .
1end! Say Thej Tried . to Avoid
Meeting Carmaok, bat Dead
Man's Friends Say They
Waylaid Him.
NASHVILLE. TennM Nov. 11. This
fttate Is now absorbed In discussion of
th killing of ex-Senator Carmack by
.Robin Cooper. the question being
whether it was murder or a duel.
The friends of the Coopers- tnroughout
the state fay that the affair was
merely a street duel. In which both aides
met and began firing; that the Coopers
had tried to avoid a meeting with Mr.
Carmack and that they were on their
way to the state capital in response to
a telephone message from Governor Pat
terson when the tragedy occurred; that
Carmack was warned and was expect
ing trouble.
The friends of Carmack strenuously
Insist that the killing was the result
of a conspiracy in which men high in
authority were connected : that Car
, mack was waylafd and assassinated
while he was on his way to his boarding-house,
and while he was talking
to a lady; that when he left the
Tennesseean office for his boarding
house the fact was telephoned from a
house near the Tennesseean office, and
that thus the Coopers were notified that
the Senator was on his way and to be
on the alert.
1 1 now develops, according to f rienris
of Carmack. that there was a third
party with the Coopers Just before the
shooting, an ex-County official, who is a
close personal friend of both the Coopers
and Governor Patterson. Friends of the
dead Senator Intimate that there will be
some sensational developments within
the next day or two regarding the af
fair. Neither Colonel Cooper nor his
son would give out a statement for publication.

The Netherlands Summarizes Grler
auce Aealnst President Castro.
WlI.r.KMSTAD, Curacao. Nov. 11.
The official organ of the Colonial gov
eri men! made public yesterday all the
notes exchanged between Venezuela and
The Netherlands in the course of the
recent difficulties between these two
countries. Excepting the actual phrase
ology, they contain nothing not already
known. Holland does not make any
excuse for the letter criticising Venezuela
and President Castro sent by M. De Reus,
her former Mlnlste. to a monthly journal
in Holland. She suggests that treaties
covering arbitration of consular and com
mercial matters be arranged with Vene
zuela and summarizes tier complaints
against the Venezuelan government as
First, the detention of Dutch vessels by
t he Venezuelan government, citing tle
examples; second,, the decree prohibiting
the transshipment of goods destined for
Venezuela at Curacao and. third, the
withdrawal of the exequateurs of The
Netherlands Consuls In Venezuela, a
course not J us tilled In time of peace.
Holland called attention to the fact
that the claims of Venezuela are for
dirert acts of Dutch employes who pro
ceeded without having secured the pre
vious consent of the government, while
t lie. claims of Holland against Venezuela
are for direct acts of the Venezuelan gov
ernment. Holland declares that the fact
Jhat Venezuela has not revoked the trans
shipment decree, as demanded, gives her
full liberty of action and that President
Castro Is responsible for the consequences.
Ihen California Stockman Is Ac

FRKSNO. Cal.. Nov. 11. United States
District Attorney Lawler sprung a sen
sation In the Federal Court today when
he attempted to Introduce evidence in the
case of the Government against S. C
Lills to prove that the defendant, after
building 3 miles of fencing surrounding
M)iO acres of Government land, and also
his own holdings, spent thousands of dol-I
iars in an attempt to secure ine enure
acreage by illegally locating his vaqueros
upon the property.
The eidence was unearthed only two

three years ago for inclosing Government

Dr. Wiley Brands Trademarks and
Labels Which Carry Gross
NEW YORK. Nov. 11. That all ad
vertising should be scrupulously honest
and that any other sort is "Immorality,"
waa the burden of a speech by Dr. Har
vey M. Wiley, chief of the chemical bu
reau of the Department of Agriculture,
before the Spliynx Club, an organization
of advertising men. at its dinner at the
Waldorf-Astoria. "The Pure-Food Law
In Action" was Dr. Wiley's theme, and
he said:
"The Court of Appeals of the District
of Columbia has handed down a de
rision which is pregnant of the future.
It deals with a trademark, the? adver
tising; of which was false and mislead
ing. The court said It would not pro
tect any trademark about which any
false statement had been made. Now
suppose a man puts the proper label
on his article and then advertises false
ly, then by the decision the court will
not protect that man in his trademark.
'I read advertisements in the ele
vated and subway cars and on the plat
forms. Everywhere there are extrav
agant, false and misleading statements.
Now. gentlemen, that's not advertising.
It's immorality. The American prod
ucts don't need this misrepresentation.
They have virtues enough to brag about
and to test your skill at composition
and still keep within the law."
Cleveland Carlines Put In Receivers'
Hands by Court.
CLHVBIAND. Nor. 11. Two receivers
for the Municipal Traction Company and
the Cleveland Railway Company will be
appointed tomorrow by Federal Judge
Taylor. He made It clear that the re
ceivers were merely to preserve the prop
erty and that he would not undertake to
determine the rights of the Cleveland
Hallway Company or the Municipal Trac
tion Company as to restoration of their
property, but would reserve that ques
tion for the final hearing.
Upon demand of the court, counsel for
the Cleveland Railway Company waived
Its rights to- clulm that by this receiver
ship the lease of the streetcar property
to the Municipal Traction Company is
forfeited. The court held, however, that
the lease by the Municipal Traction Com
pany' of the -property of the Cleveland
Railway Company terminated when the
franchise failed to carry at the recent
referendum election, but qualified his
statement bv remarking that this finding
was not final, but for the purpose of
hearing on the application for a receiver.

Missing Priest -Drank Too
Freely and Walked With . :
Gay Women.
Church Court of Inquiry Goes
AVrong Way About Learning; the
Truth Edna Clark Found and
Likely Sent to Sanitarium.
SAN FRANCISCO. Nov. 11. ( Special.)
Whatever may be the solution of tha
mystery of Edna Clark's disappearance,
the Inquiry aroused will probably end the
usefulness of "Father" Payson Young.
This unfrocked Catholic priest, who has
been posing as a high church Episco
palian, has had a flood of light let in on
his checkered career and. unless the
church court of inquiry shirks Its work,
it will be forced to recommend his dis
missal. The records show that his name was
Patrick J. Lyons and that after he left
the Catholic Church he married and was
divorced at Santa Cruz three years ago.
He left a fair reputation at Santa Cruz,
but he must have married again, for his
second wife secured a divorce six months
ago in Portland. Or. The police on the
beat near his church say he was ac
customed to walk in the street in the
early morning hours with women of the
town, and Professor Bona, once hi.j best
friend, declares he drank too murri at a
party given a, the professor's house.
Young has gone into retirement tem
porarily j.nJ no one can get at him.
Preparing to Whitewash.
The court of inquiry appointed by
Bishop Nichols has adopted the curious
plan of calling for affidavits by those
who have knowledge of Rev. Payson
Young's evil doings. This is absurd, as
It Is notorious that people may be in
duced to testify or to talk with Indi
vidual members of a court, but they will
not go to a lawyer or a notary and make
a formal affidavit. From this preliminary
step It would seem as though the church
court was preparing for the usual white
wash dealt out to offenders within the
i Mother Has Found Girl.
In the meantime It looks as though
Edna Clark has been located, as her
mother has recovered some of her cheer
fulness and no longer Is threatened with
nervous prostration. The theory of those
who are working on the case Is that the
girl Is In some sanitarium not far away,
and that she will come home when the
excitement aroused by her disappear
ance has subsided.
Bishop Not Well Impressed and He
. Suddenly Disappeared.
I.OS ANGKL.ES. Nov. 11. Bishop
Johnson, of the Ios Angeles diocese of
the Episcopal Church, when, asked re
garding Kev. Payson Young, of San
Francisco, stated that Young came to
him in this city about two years ago.
He told the bishop that he came from
Springfield. 111. Young remained at
the parish several weeks, but was
given no work by the bishop. Bishop
Johnson satd that he was not suffi
ciently impressed by Young to give
him an assignment. He believed
Young did perform one or two services
in San Diego County during his stay
After he had remained at the parish
at St- Paul's Pro-Cathedral several
weeks, the minister mysteriously dis
appeared and Bishop Johnson next
heard of him Jn San Francisco. Mr.
Young spoke to Bishop Johnson about
his wife while lie was here, but said
nothing further than a mere mention
of the fact that he was married.
Young Married Cheyenne Woman,
v but Deserted Her.
Mrs. Payson Young, the wife of the di
vine whese conduct Is being Investigated
In connection with the disappearance of
Miss Edna Clark, a Berkeley art student,
applied to a Portland attorney last May
for a divorce. The divorce was granted
in Oregon City in June. Before her mar
riage to Young she was Selma M. John
son. She is said to have met him while
visiting relatives in a small town near
Cheyenne. Wyo. A brief acquaintance
was followed by the wedding, but Mrs.
Young says that, when she ceased ad
vancing money for the use of the clergy
man, he deserted her and went to Oak
land. She also says that he acted as
though he did not wish to have his friends
know that she was his wife. The couple
were married in Denver.
Hunters Point Plant and Union Iron
Works Will Repair Ships.
SAN FRANCISCO. Nov. 11. Charles
M. Schwab, head of the Bethlehem Steel
Company, which controls the Union Iron
Works, of this city, announced today
that the Steel Company had pur
chased the controlling Interest in the
San Francisco Drydock Company, which
owns two big docks at Hunter's Point,
within San Francisco Bay as well as a
number of floating docks for small ves
sels. Mr. Schwab said that the docks
would be combined with the Union Iron
Works into a vast repair establishment
capable of handling marine work of any
magnitude and of docking any ship
afloat in the Pacific Ocean. The amount
involved, said Mr. Schwab, will reach
several millions.
The Hunter's Point drydocks. two In
number, are " respectively 750 and 490 feet
long, the larger capable of taking any
vessel that has ever entered the harbor.
Including battleships. Mr. Schwab will
build at the docks efficient repair shops
to do any class-of work and he says that
the cost of repairing will be done here
as cheaply as In any part of tha world
round. .
"Does this mean that the Union Iron
Works wilt now bid for .contracts on the
construction of . naval vessels?" Mr.
Schwab was asked.
"We can make no statement sa to
that." he replied. "This combination
deals mjre with repair, work than con
struction." '

veloped today that Mrs. Allen F. Reed.
who Is under arrest In Denver for at

Armored Vessels Will All He Mo
bilized on Atlantic Coast.
NEW YORK. Nov. 11. According to a
Manila dispatch to the Herald, the re
cent orders for the supply ship Glacier
and the hospital ship Relief to join the
Pacific fleet at Talcahuana and Callao,
respectively, Ls interpreted by tlie officers
of the Atlantic fleet to mean that the ar
mored, cruisers are to be mobilized in the
Atlantic, later joining: the battteohipg and
forming with the destroyers and scouts
an Immense tactical fleet. The dispatch
adds that thin would strip the Pacific of
large ships, but the sentiment of the serv
ice favor the concentration, because, it
Is asserted, the cruisers have accom
plished little in the way of tactical de
velopment alone, their chief value being
in support of the battleehips.
