Senator that an attempt will be made
to have the Jury indict, not only Rep
resentative Hermann, but himself, and
It is to testify in his own behalf that
the Senator will return at this time.
Senator Mitchell asserts his Innocence
and declares In most positive terms
that he will come out unscathed unless
perjured evidence is brought against
The announcement that the grand
jury is to hear evidence against Her
mann and Mitchell causes no surprise
in "Washington, at least so far as Her
mann is concerned. It .has been known
for a year that Secretary Hitchcock
hoped to bring about Hermann's in
dictment, but this is the first time it
has been opportune to bring matters
to a head. It was not until today that
Senator Mitchell received an Intima
tion that he was to be brought In
along with Hermann. He promptly
decided to go home and appear in self
defense. He expects by personal tes
timony to establish his Innocence and'
to return to "Washington before Con
gress reassembles after the holidays.
It Is reported here that .at least 24
counts will be brought In against.. Her
mann, connecting him notf' only with
cases In Oregon, but with the. Hyde-,
Benson cases in California and Oregon.
Mr. Hermann does- not intend 6 go
home to defend himself.
NO SUBPENA ISSUED.
If Mitchell Comes, It is of His Own
Free Will, Says Heney.
In relation to the foregoing dispatch,
Francis J. Honey, Special Assistant Attorney-General,
said last night:
"Neither Senator Mitchell nor Blngcr
Hermann have been subpenaed to appear
before the grand Jury by me. I have
nothing to say as to what will be pre
sented before the Jury when It meets. The
matter of either of them coming here to
meet with the Jury at this time is entirely
of their own will. I tried to get both of
them here to testify In the recent trial
Which was to have been before the court,
but which was continued at the request of
the Government. I also wished both of
them to appear as witnesses In the other
trial In which conviction was secured. In
the first trial Mr. Hermann did appear,
but In my endeavors to get his attend
ance as well as that of Senator Mitchell
!n the other trials I failed. As regards
what comes "before the jury I have noth
ing to say, for obvious reasons."

of the manner In which the Oregon cam
paign had been handled, and was particu
larly loud in his praises of the conduct of
the June campaign, which, he said, had
such a good effect In the National cam
paign in the Fall. He placed particular
stress upon the splendid work of Senator
Fulton, whose speeches stood out promi
nency as a striking feature of the cam
paign In Oregon and In other states where
the Senator spoke. Mr. Cortelyou also
emphasized the effectiveness of the work
done by the Republican press of Oregon
In behalf of President Roosevelt. He com
mended Mr. Baker for his activity in
Oregon, giving him much credit for the
splendid result attained Jn that state,
and said he wished other Western States

come Postmaster-General. Intimating that
he would have to relinquish th chalr
manshlp of the National Committee and
as a result several promotions would be
"Could you nominate a man In your
country as zealous as you, whose name
could be discussed in connection with
the National Committee?" he asked.
Secretary Dover also commended Mr.
Baker in high terms, saying: "Your cam
paign was original, unique, energetic and
conducted. In most forceful manner. There
was no cesspool politics about it. It was
clean and vigorous."
Both .Cortelyou And Dover alluded to
the fact that Chairman Baker had made
but one request for campaign funds, in
marked contrast to demands from other

management of the campaign, while Vice-President-elect

mended Mr. Baker, but was lavish in his

ful for his assistance on the tour which

Utah and Wyoming, and was anxious to

cess of that tour was due to Senator

trict May Not Be Reappointed.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash

made by Assistant Attorney-General Day,
of the Department of Justice, on condi
tions in Alaska, the statement was made
that Judge Wickersham would be reap
pointed United States Judge of Valdes Dis
trict, but decided opposition to his ap
pointment has developed from unexpected
sources In the last few days. Several
Senators who would not be supposed to
pay any attention to appointive matters
in far-away Alaska have taken a hand in
the question. Some of them have friends
In the district, and still others have con
stituents who have large Interests in the
territory, and they look to their repre
sentatives In Washington to take a hand
In appointive matters.
It has also been developed that some of
the Senators who went to Alaska a year
ago do not wish to see Wickersham named
again. It is ald the President wants fur
ther light on the case of Wickersham be
fore he takes final action.
Senator Ankcny had a conference this
morning with Acting Attorney-General
Day on matters pertaining to Alaska, In
cluding certain recommendations Judge
Day makes in his report. Whether ap
pointment matters were discussed at the
conference would not be stated by Son

Department of Justice today, but he was"
also uncommunicative as to the subject
of his visit.

Mrs. C. L Chadwick
Brought Into Court
SHE ACTS AS ONE DAZED
Lawyer Is Asked What the
BANKERS ALSO ARRAIGNED
Beckwith and Spear Deny Charges
Against Them, and Are Released
on Bail Son and Maid Un
able to See Her.
CLEVELAND. O., Dec 17. Mrs. Chad
wick was arraigned before Judge Wing, of
the United States District Court, this aft
ernoon, pleaded not guilty to every charge
brought against her. declined to give ball,
and was remanded to jail to await trial.
President Beckwith and Cashier Spear, of
the Citizens National Bank of Oberlln,
wejjp arraigned at the same time, and
were allowed to depart after furnishing
bonds, each In the amount of $25.000 an
Increase of $15,000 over the bond furnished
previously. It was desired to have the In
dicted persons called on Saturday, at a
time when few pcoplo would bo expecting
to see them In court. Instead of at a regu
lar session,' when a multitude of curious
people would attempt to invade the court
room. Not over 30 people were present
when Judge Wing took his scat to preside
for the arraignment only. Court was ad
journed as coon as It was over, the entire
session not lasting over 15 minutes.
Supported at Every Step.
Few persons were about the Jail when
Mrs. Chadwick entered a carriage to be;
taken to the courthouse. Neither , were
there any persons about- the Federal

"I understand that Mrs. Chadwick
pleads not guilty," said Judge Wing. "But
Is that plea for the other defendants?"
Beckwith and Spear hastily exclaimed:
"We plead not guilty."
"Your Honor." said Dawley. "in enter
ing a plea of not guilty, I should like the
privilege of withdrawing it. If we should,
at a later time, deem it advisable to do so.
I have had no opportunity as yet to ex
amine this case, and really know very
little about it- I would ask that the court
docs not fix the bonds until later. We are
making no application for ball."
"Tou appear for Mrs. Chadwick alone?"
asked the Judge.
"She is now in custody, is she not?"
"In cases where a prisoner Is In custody
and ball Is to be given." said the court,
"the Initial move must come from the per
son so held. If that person does not ask
for liberty, and prefers to remain In cus
tody, there is no need of fixing any
amount of bail. I understand that Mrs.
Chadwick dees not wish to give ball, and
she can remain In custody."
"That Is perfactly satisfactory to the de
fendant," said District Attorney Sullivan,
nnd the case, bo far as Mrs. Chadwick was
concerned, was ended.
It had been previously arranged with
District Attorney Sullivan that Beckwith
and Spear, who were already under bonds
of $10,000, should give an additional bond
of $15,000 each. The bonds were approved.
ana court at once adjourned.
Proceedings a Puzzle to Her.
The nature of the proceedings were a
puzzle to Mrs. Chadwick. Tho affair had
been so hastily arranged that she had no
previous knowledge of it, and had no Idea
of what It meant.
When the Judge lcf,t the bench, she
turned to Mr. Dawley and said: "What
does it mean? Why was I brought here?"
"It Is just a formality." replied Mr.
Dawley: "and fixes, for the time being,
your standing before the court. There Is
nothing in it that affects the Issue of the
trial one way or the other."
After leaving the courtroom, Mrs. Chad
wick found that her carriage was not
waiting for her. To avoid being stared at
by the people In the hallway. Mrs. Chad
wick asked to be taken where there was
no crowd, and the deputies led her back to
the elevator, which was run to the second
floor. There she remained until tho car
riage was procured. On reaching the Jail,
Mrs. Chadwick was perceptibly weaker
than when she had started for the court.
Mrs. Chadwick requested that medicine
brought from New York be sent to her.
It Is In the possession of Jailer Eggers.
and Dr. Wall ordered that It be not given
her. He said she was under his treatment,
and while the drugs may be perfectly
harmless, ho was. nevertheless, unac
quainted with the prescription, and did not
care 'to have her take tho medicine
Sheriff Barry was today firm In his de
termination not to allow either Emll. Mrs.
Chadwlck's son. or Freda Swanstrom, her
nurse, to see the prisoner. Both have
heretofore, through the kindness of Sheriff
Barry, been allowed to call on her, but
today the Sheriff declined to admit them,
as Marshal Chandler had ordered. .Sheriff
Barry declared to Marshal Chandler that
he was responsible for the woman's keep
ing, and could not afford to allow any one
but her counsel or those who obtained or
ders to visit her.
Dawley was asked tonight If he Intend
ed to have his client plead guilty at some
"My request did not mean that," he re
plied. "I simply wanted the privilege and
that was the time to ask for it."
The physical condition and temper of
Mrs. Chadwick were much Improved this
morning. She declined, to order any
breakfast, but read the morning papers
and laughed heartily at several state
ments they contained, one of which de
clared that she had received a check for
$55,000,000, "Payable on the Bank of the
River Jordan," seeming to afford her
Before Dr. Wall arrived at the jail. Mrs.
Chadwick had several more fainting
spells. The matron became excited and
hastily called for Sheriff Barry, who was
In his office below. The Sheriff gave her
a stimulant and after several minutes she
revived. Dr. Wall found after examina
tion of the prisoner, that her condition
was no worse than he had previously an
nounced. He repeated the statement that
she was completely exhausted and needed
rest. Bringing articles to Mrs. Chadwick
In violation of the Jail rules. It was de
clared later, was the cause of Sheriff
Barry's refusal to allow the nurse and
son of Mrs. Chadwick to see the latter.
SOMETHING BACK OF IT ALL
Banker Beckwith Says the Thing to
Watch Now Is Pittsburg.
CLEVELAND. Dec 17. In an interview
here today President Beckwith said:
"I etlll believe there Is something back
of Mrs. Chadwick, something that has
not appeared, something I cannot fathom,
something I cannot understand. I do
not know what It is, but I bellevo there
is something back of all of this. If there
Is nothing there but wind, then this has
been the biggest and cleverest swindle of
"Have you really a hope left?" he was
"No, I would not say that. It is not
a hope. I can hardly say what It Is, but
there Is somehlng there, something back
of all this. It is not possible that all
this should go on with nothing back of
It. It is not possible."
Mr. Beckwith said Mrs. Chadwick had
done business with his bank for some
time before he made her acquaintance.
Tho increased loans were referred to
the president by Cashier Spear for ap
proval, and in this manner Mrs. Chad
wick and President Beckwith became ac
quainted. Mr. Beckwith said he person
ally has lost over $100,000. all that he had
In the world, through the failure of the
bank. He cares not for that, however,
and says ho only regrets the" losses to
President Beckwith was asked If there
was anyone thing upon which he based
his faith In Mrs. Chadwick. He replied:
"Yes, and no. There were many things.
She told of her dead uncle, showed me
his picture, and. wove a story around It
She told me of Carnegie and all those
things. Theso were mcro details which
built up and supported the main thing.
I trusted in the word of Ira. Reynolds.
That was the one Important thing I had
"All of this has not been yet; there Is
a little more.

ably bo about $CO,000.
The Irrigation Commission appointed by
the last Legislature has framed an ir
rigation code which will bo submitted to
the Legislature of 1S05 for enactment.
This proposed law creates numerous Irri
gation offices and provides an appropria
tion of $W,O0O to carry out its provisions
for - two years.
Labor unions have demanded that the
state discontinue ths practice of using
convict labor In the manufacture of ar
ticles sold In competition with articles
made by free labor. If a law to that ef
fect should be passed the Legislature
must provide other funds to take the
place of the $24,000 thatls derived every
two years from convict labor.
Extra Expense for Convicts.
Convicts must have employment and It
is proposed to work them on the roads.
This will take machinery, teams, feed for
teams, temporary quarters for convicts,
additional guards, etc. costing for two
years about $30,000. The abandonment of
the convict stove foundry will therefore
require an appropriation of about $34,000.
The State Land Board has begun the
foreclosure of its mortgage on the State
Fair grounds, and unless' the Legislature
wants the property sold to the highest
bidder It must appropriate $19,000 to pay
off the debt. The appropriation bill vetoed
by Governor Chamberlain two years ago
contained an item of $10,000 for improve
ments at the Fair grounds, $4000 of which
has already been met from the surplus In
the hands of the State Fair Board. It
will take $0000 to make up the balance,
therefore requiring- an. extraordinary ap
propriation of $25,000 for the State Fair at
There Is general recognition of the need
of an emergency fund to be placed at
the disposal of the Governor, to be used
by him In contingencies which the Legis
lature cannot foresee. This fund could
scarcely be placed at less than $10,000 for
Mansion for the Governor.
The last Legislature appropriated $14,500
for the purchase of an executive mansion,
but the Item was In the bill which the
Governor vetoed. It Is understood that
a strenuous effort will be made to pass
this appropriation again. If the purchase
should be made it will also require an ap
propriation of $2500 for maintenance of
the mansion for two years, making $17,000
for that purpose.
The items here mentioned foot up $195.
000 and do not contain appropriations that
will be asked for various Improvements
at the State Normal Schools, Agricultural
College and university, additional appro
priations suggested by the Food and Dairy
Commissioner, nor a number of other
small incidentals that will receive the at
tention of the Legislature.
Should the Legislature establish a school
for feeble-minded children, as suggested
by Senator Kuykendall. this will require
an appropriation of $25,000 for a new
building and about $3000 for maintenance
for two years. There is also a strong de
mand for the establishment of a Reform
School for girls, which would require an
appropriation of about $20,000.
Improvements that will cost $20,000 are
needed at the Sta'te Capitol, and of these
Improvements some arc of such a nature
that they cannot be postponed without
great Injury to the property. At least
$10,000 must be apgrojjrlatgd for -this pur
pose at this session.'
"While It is not probable that all the
proposed appropriations mentioned above
will be made. It is quite certain that
enough of iheso or others will be mads to
bring the total close to $3;000,000.

GREAT STRIKE IS NOT SETTLED
Cotton-Mill Men and Operatives Con
fer in Vain.
FALL RIVER, Mass.. Dec. 17. A conr
ference lasting over four hours was held
In this city today between representatives
of .the cotton manufacturers and their
striking operatives, but no agreement was
reached, and a settlement of the great
strike Involving 2b000 mill hands, ap
pears as distant os ever. The conference
was brought about as the result of a
trip made by the leaders of the strike
this week to New York, where they dis
cussed the situation with President Gom
pers, of the American Federation of La
bor, who Is also vice-president of the Na
tional Civic Federation, and John Mitch
ell, of the United Mlneworkers. and other
members of the executive committee of
the Civic Federation.
No proposition looking toward a settle
ment was submitted by the manufactur
ers. The strike leaders secured an agree
ment whereby the operatives should go
back o work at a reduction of 6 per
cent, or one-half the reduction voted last
July by the manaufacturers, and that the
millhands should work at this reduction
forat least three months.
It was also suggested thA at the end
of that time another conference be held
with 'a view to restoring the old rate
of wages. This proposition was quickly
rejected by the manufacturers. The tex
tile representatives then expressed their
willingness In case all other plans were
rejected to recommend to the . other
unions that the matter be submitted t6
arbitration by a committee of the execu
tive board of the National Civic Federa
tion, this decision to be final. ,
The Idea was discussed at some length,
but no action was taken on It.
