Champ Clark Would Ostracise
Party Members Who Let
Cannon Succeed.
Tf Despotic Edict Is Carrie Out, Ex
' lied Members Must Seek Conso
lation With Republicans or
Form New Party.
: WASHINGTON. Nov. 14. (Special.) By
way of a contribution to the general
gaiety of the event, the House Demo
cratic .organization Is planning to read
out of the party 23 members of the mi
nority who made It possible for the
Cannon forces to re-enact despotic rules.
Minority leader Champ Clark's friends
are taking steps already to shut the is
mM 23 out of the House caucus which
it is proposed to hold at the opening of
Congress to outline the policy of legisla
tive action, with special reference , to
campaigns next year and thereafter. " It
became known today that the movement
indicated has taken serious shape. In
romin Democratic members of the
House are discussing it more or less
openly, and It is Intimated that letters
bearing on the subject have been ex
changed between leaders during the
Pall weeks.
A deep purpose is understood to be In
volved, and the emphatic declarations of
Champ Clark in the West that the next
House will have 100 Democratic majority
may reflect the hopes that have been
builded partially on the plans of action
under consideration.
Political ostracism is not a new effort,
but It most frequently fails lamentably
In praotice. The Democrats, however,
have as fine a chance, according to what
a few of the Clark lieutenants have let
drop, to accomplish something In that
line that will attract the attention of the
country. If the plan of shutting the
1'J Cannon Democrats out of the House
caucus goes through, the 13 in question
will have to seek consolation where they
gave it when they went to the Speaker's
rescue last March, or elsf, get along with
out any- political statu;, so far as the
House organisation Is concerned.
(Continued From Fixit fne )
the issue of stocks and bonds by inter
state corporations as the next step.
It is worth while to point out, how
ever, to the friends of corporations
who are already begining to quake over
the Winter prospect, that although he
Is determned to go ahead In his de
clared purposa of "clinching the Roose
velt policies." Mr. Taft is far from be
ing an enony of the corporations. The
President's chief difficulty, in fact, in
pieasint; the extremists of both wings
of his party, has been in the fact that
he would rot go as far as either side
-,..nts him to go. He has-always been
for the . regulation of corporations,
which t:ie radicals insist upon, but he
wants it "wltn the least disturbance
possible," nd with the greatest pos
sible regard for the rights of private
property. Moreover, he is firmly a be
liever in the advantages of the cor
porate form of enterprise. He really
desires to protect the corporations, but
at the same time he wants to compel
them all to submit to what he regards
as a proper and legitimate measure of
governmental supervision and control.
Whether the message wil be satis
factory tq either wing of the Presi
dent's party cannot be foretold with
certainty but perhaps it will not suit
either. The ultra-conservatives may
be prone to see in it an assault upon
a status that they would like to let
alone; the radicals will not believe,
perhaps, that it goes far enough. Some
of the more Important of the radicals,
in fact, have already made up their
minds that the real rfesign of some of
the proposed bills is to help the cor
porations out of their present difficul
ties with governmental control.
Details Left to Congress.
The details of the bills by which the
president hopes to effect the reforms
he will propose have not been worked
out. There are several methods by
which the control of the issue of se
curities can be effected. The first and
fundamental question to be determined
by his advisers is whether it shall be
attempted as a measure' of taxation or
under the commerce clause of the Con
stitution. A a taxation measure there
would be no question of Its constitu
tionality. Nor. for that matter, as to
the fight 'it would evoke. But that is
certain . in any event. If attempted
under the commerce clause of the Con
stitution, the bill Is likely to meet an
other kind of opposition and be un
certain as to its operation until It has
stood the test of the Supreme Court
several years after enactment. Under
that clause it would have to be some
form of registration or license. Attorney-General
Wickersham and Secre
tary Xa gel have been at work on this
proposition all Summer, and the result
of their labors is about to be submit
ted to other lawyers of the Cabinet
and to Senators Root and Cummins for
suggestion and criticism.
The bill or bills affecting the Inter
State Commerce Commission. Bureau
of Corporations and Department of
Justice, will aim. at restricting the
Commission to the proper functions of
a quasi-judicial body. It will hear and
determine complaints and other causes
coming to it from the Bureau of Cor
poratlons, which will have the general
administration of the commerce law to
look after, and the preliminary investi
gation of complaints of its violation.
1'rotecutions in the courts for such
violations will be undertaken by the
proposed accusatory Bureau of the De
partment of Justice, and appeals from
the Commerce Commission will be
taken directly to the proposed Com
merce Court, instead of to any one of
the various district courts as at pres
ent. This new court would tend to
lessen delay in reaching final deci
sions, and to simplify and unify the
Weakening of ltate Law Feared.
The proposed limitation on the Com
merce Commission is already arousing
the fighting blood of the Republican
insurgents, who affect to see in it a
scheme to weaken the Commission
under the guise of strengthening it.
1' through it the door is open for a
shipper or other user of a railroad or
other public servtce utility to make
his complaint directly to the Com
merce Commission without having to
go through tile reorganized Bureau of
C-Tporatlons. much of the insurgent
opposition will be allayed.
The question of amending the Sher
man anti-trust law. which the Presl
oent will recommend, is not likely to
arouse so mucb opposition from the
conservatives as from the radicals. Mr.
Taft will recommend that the general
prohibition of. ths present law against
all combinations and contracts In re
straint of trade be llmlteS to such as
constitute conspiracies with intent to
restrain trade. He means to inject the
word "Intent" into the law, and the
radicals are already on the warpath
about it, declaring that it will result
In opening the door to any and every
sort of violation of the trust law,
owing to the practical Impossibility
of proving the criminal intention of the
trade restrainers.
Mr. Taft will also ' recommend the
establishment of a postal savings bank,
and there, also, ha Is In difficulty,
chiefly because some of the men who
want most to support him on ths
proposition can not see their way clear
to doing so constitutionally. They fear
that the postal savings bank would in
terfere with the control now exercised
over property by the states, so that,
for Instance, a man might deposit his
savings in the Government bank and
avoid process for collection of debt in
his state.
The conservation recommendations
which the President will make are
likely to be broad and general. .
On the subject of ship subsidies the
President will advise action which will
enable the establishment of regular
lines to South American ports. He will

also ask Congress to' carry out the
Republican platform promise for an
amendment of the procedure regard
ing the issue of injunctions. Among
the other recommendations of the mes
sage will be one urging the reforma
tion of the government of Alaska.
With Much Greater Crop Than Last
Year, Receipts at St. Lawrence
Port Are Smaller.
MONTREAL Nov. 14. (Special.)
A somewhat extraordinary situation has
developed In the shipments of wheat
from Canadian ports, and the prevail
ing condition seriously affects the Port
of Montreal. While the wheat crop
in the provinces of Manitoba. Sas
katchewan and Alberta Is about 25.000.
000 bushels greater than that of last
year, the shipments by way of Mon
treal since the movement of the new
crop began up to the present time are
actually less than a year ago.
Canadian grain exporters, however,
say that the farmers are holding back
their grain at the instance of the West
ern Graingrowers' Association and the
Western dealers, who think that by re
serving the grain until the Winter ad
vances, or until next Spring, better
prices will be obtained. It is further
explained that of the Canadian wheat
now being shipped at the Canadian
lake ports the larger part is finding Its
outlet to British- markets by way of
Buffalo, through New York and other
American Atlantic ports.
It seems that the grain Is going by
that route in spite of the fact that "the
Canadian inland rates are lower than
those of the United States. The ocean
rate, on the other hand, is considerably
less from New York and Boston than
from Montreal.
Opposes Cannon Rule, and Says He
. Will Run for Congress.
BOISB. Idaho. Nov. 14. (Special.) With
Congressman Hamer canvassing Idaho
eulogizing Cannonism in the lower house
of Congress, as well as declaring the
Aidrich tariff bill the pet measure of the
last se33ion, pollticul circles were jarred
here today by a public statement made
by ex-Congressman French, of Moscow.
He placed himself on record as bitterly
opposed to Cannon and his principles and
admitted that he would probably present
his name at the primaries next Fall as a
candidate for Congress against the pres
ent incumbent.
Mr. French made these declarations in
an open letter written to H. V. Williams,
of Sandpolnt. Idaho, the missive being
made public for the first time In this city
today. The altitude assumed by French
indicates that Idaho will see a bitter
political contest next Fall when, for the
first time, in this state the direct pri
mary will become operative.

Chinese Feud at San Francis
co Claims One More.
Slave of On Tick Tons Man Stolen
by YTee Family Member; Ransom
Unpaid, Whereupon Vengeance
of Blood Is Coarse Taken.
SAN" FRANCISCO. Nov. 14. The feud
between the Tee family and the On
Ylck tons, which has resulted in the mur
der of five men since the beginning of
the month, claimed Its sixth victim today
when Yee Tip Wo was shot dead in the
Chinese quarter. Gee Gong, a Chinese
who is not known to be an On Tick man
but is a member of another powerful
family, was arrested near the scene of
the shooting and charged with the mur
der. A revolver containing five dis-i
charged shells was found on his person
and h answers to the description given
by witnesses who saw a man running
from the place where Wo was shot.
Wo, It is said by the police, was a
noted gun men of the Tee family. It Is
hinted about the Chinese quarter that he
was planning an attack on the On Ticks
at thje time he was shot. A revolver was
found on the body, which the dead man
had not had time to draw.
The murder occurred on one of the.
main streets of the quarter but at a
time when the sidewalks were deserted
except for a few Chinese. The death roll
of the feud now stands at four members
of the Yee family, one Oh Tick and one
member of the Gin family, supposed to
have been killed by mistake.
The war arose over the elopement of
Bow Gue. a Chinese girl belonging to an
On Tick, with one of the Yees. An ar
bitration committee fixed upon the price
that should be paid but the Yees re
fused to settle and. according to Chinese
custom, the On Yicks were then privileged
to seek blood vengeance.
Two Yees were the first victims and
two Chinese are now in jail awaiting
trial on murder charges. Warrants for
the president of the On Ylck tong and for
Tong King Chong, secretary of the most
powerful tong. the Chee Kung or Free
Masons, were Issued, charging them with
conspiracy to cause murder, but they
have not surrendered to the police.
Since the outbreak of the feud special
precautions have been taken to prevent
bloodshed in the Chinese quarter. A
score or, more detectives have been added
to the regular squad of patrolmen on
duty at night and plain clothes men dis
tributed in the narrow alleys.

give seances before the Society for Psy

vincingly demonstrated her occult powers.
Among th most" startling of her per
