With Knowledge of Others Be

to be meted to the men responsible with
Frank K. Hippie, the president of the
Heal Estate Trust Company, tor the col
lapse of that institution. Announcement
was made tonight that the evidence so
far unearthed by Receiver Earle had been
turned over to District Attorney Bell,
who is expected to cause the arrest of
the wreckers. The names of the men un
der suspicion were not made puhlic.
Since his appointment Receiver Earle
has maintained that it could not have
been possible for President Hippie to en
tangle the trust company's affairs with
out the knowledge of others connected
with the Institution. Acting on this im
pression he has been persistent in his
efforts to discover evidence of collusion.
Directors, officials ana clerks of the com
pany were called before Mr. Earle today.
For two hours District Attorney Bell was
in Mr. Earle's office. The announcement
that the evidence had been placed in the
District Attorney's hands followed.
This development came after Receiver
Earle had engaged John G. Johnson as
counsel, to render an opinion as to the
responsibility for the failure of the com
pany. Among the men who appeared be
fore the receiver were four directors who
are said to have heard of Hippie's loans
to Adolph Segal at least several weeks
ago. Treasurer William F. North, who
was supposed to approve all the loans by
the trust company, and Theodore Prosser,
the company's real estate officer, who
was supposed to have approved the mort
gages affected by the security for his
loans, was also examined.
"The deeper I get into the thing the
worse it looks," said Receiver Earle.
"The trust funds, which I had thought
intact, have -been tampered with to the
extent of $50,000. But this sum is" distrib
uted through 6.000,000 the bank had in
trust, and the loss will not be heavy on
Mr. Hippie's desk was opened and in it
was found a. statement by Horace Hill,
the company's auditor, which, Mr. Earle
Fays, is materially different from the
statement Mr. Hill gave him.
The Rev. Dr. William H. Roberts, stated
clerk of the Presbyterian General Assem
bly, has made formal application to the
receiver to examine the securities of the
trustees of the General Assembly. These
were in the custody of President Hippie,
and they amount to nearly $1,000,000.
The report that certain directors and
their relatives withdrew their accounts
from the trust company after they knew
It was insolvent Is denied by officers of
ICUMOR THAT BANKER LIVES
Weird Story of Substitution of Body
From City Slorguc.
PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 1. A rumor
spread like wildfire about Broad and
Chestnut streets today that Hippie is not
really dead but had skipped to Europe.
According to this story, a body was ob
tained at c morgue and substituted for
Hippie. This, it was said, was why the
funeral was held privately. Those of the
directors who were seen refused to con
lirm the report. .They admitted, though,
that they had not themselves viewed the
body. When the rumor was carried to
Coroner King at Norristown, his wife
said that he was out of town. Dr. Read,
the Coroner's physician, said: "Go see the
When told that the Coroner was not ac
cessible. Dr. Read turned on his heel and
proceeded up Main street with the re
mark, "I won't discuss it."
The Coroner has not filed his report of
the case in court. In previous interviews
the Coroner said he had seen Hippie's
(or at least a body which the family said
was Hippie's) and told of the only vis
ible outward mark, which was an abra
sion on his lip. It is understood that the
scheme covering up the suicide included
that this abrasion should be responsible
for any blood which might have been on
Hippie, and that had the newspapers not
been so diligent the suicide story would
never have been given out.
There are many who believe that King
ior Read never really saw the body, but
took Dr. Powell's word for It, that the
body was Hippie's, and that he had com
KID MAYOR MAKES DISPLAY
Milwaukee's Executive Visits Presi
dent Roosevelt In Red Auto.
OTSTER BAT, Sept. 1. (Special.)
President Roosevelt received a visit to
day from Mayor Becker, of Milwaukee,
who rode down from New York in a red
automobile. The "Kid Mayor" believes
in advertising, for upon the rear of his
touring car was a large sheet of canvas
bearing the words, "Mayor Becker, of
Milwaukee." The villagers and the resi
dents of the neighborhood thought the
wagon was part of the show that was
advertised to appear at the opera-house
tonight, and when they go and fail to
find the Mayor and his automobile they
will probably demand their money back.
The Mayor's visit to the President had
no political interest and their conversa
tion was limited to the usual expressions
of good will.

WON VICTORY, NOT DEFEATED
Asbert Gives Jiew Version of Al
leged Government Success.
HAVANA, Sept. 1. (Special.) -What
was reported on Friday night to have been
a great government victory over Colonel
Asbert' s Insurgent force in. Havana Prov
ince turns out to have been. In fact, only
a slight rebuff for the revolutionists, it
not defeat for the government troops.
Asbert, at the head of 600 men. entered
Carabaldo, in Havana Province, this
morning. There were just four wounded
men with the column. The statements
of the insurgents showed that instead of
having been defeated, they more than
held their own. It was reported by the
government that Asbert had lost 40 killed
and wounded. The insurgents deny this
Colonel Asbert's force has grown stead

made no effort to recruit and is In a po
sition to Injure the government materi

Complain That Freight Rates to the
Coast Are Less Than to That Point.
WASHINGTON, Sept. L Discrimination
and unjust rates are the charges filed
with the Interstate Commerce Commis
sion today against many of the Important
lines of railroad of the country by
One of the important cases filed which
will likely result later in a hearing was
one in which the Merchants' Traffic As
sociation of Denver "complains that the
New York, New Haven & Hartford Rail
road Company and all of the Important
lines of railways doing business between
the North Atlantic Coast and the Pacific
Coast discriminate against Denver mer
chants and Jobbers in favor of those of
San Francisco and other Pacific Coast
points in the matter of rates.
It is alleged that the defend
ant eompanies exact a rate on calico
and similar merchandise from At
lantia Coast points to San Fran
cisco and other Pacific Coast points of tl
per 100 pounds on carload lots and $1.50
per 100 on less than carload lots; whereas
to Denver and Colorado common points
they charge $1.79 per 100, with no reduc
tion for carload lots. On other classes
of merchandise, such as -cotton sheet
ings, cotton duck, etc., the defendants
charge a rate of 90 cents per 100 on car
load lots and $1.35 per 100 for a less
amount than a carload; while the rate on
the same goods to Denver and Colorado
common points Is $1.79 per 100, irrespec
tive of amount.
It is urged that this is a case in which
the shorter haul is included in the longer,
and the charges to Denver are excessive,
unjust' and unreasonable and dlscrima
tory. The complainant asks the commis
sion to establish proper rates to Denver
from Atlantic Coast points, and to order
that they in no event shall exceed the
rates to the Pacific Coast point
Another case involves the freight rates
charged by Southern roads for the ship
ment of fruit to the Northern markets.
LONESOME WITHOUT GIRLS
Order Against Admission to Concert
Halls Overworks Pianos.
The order excluding women from all
concert halls and saloons went Into ef
fect yesterday and was rigidly enforced
by the police officers.
The women's orchestra at Erickson's
gave way to one lone pianist, who tried
to amuse the Immense crowds which
3urged into the place the entire eve
ning. The old Fritz hall was almost de
serted and the only exhibition on the
stage was a moving picture outfit, but
that did not seem to draw the crowds.
The same at Blazier's.
Moving pictures took the place of all
other attractions at the halls last night
and this is the first time in many months
that not a single representative of the
weaker sex was seen in any of the re
sorts. The crowds were not so large as
those on past Saturday nights and the
absence of the women's orchestra at
Erickson's took away much of the ani
mation usually observed in the place.
The pianist then had a hard time
to make his muslo heard throughout
the immense hall amidst the noise of
the hundreds of talking men.
The proprietors of the places kept
their word in obeying the order issued
by Chief Gritzmacher several days ago,
but it is understood they will all con
test its validity in court.

DISMAY IN FRANCE
Sunday , Rest Unwelcome to
Workman and Employer.
MAKE PARIS NO LONGER GAY
Labor Now Seeks Way to Escape
Law It Demanded Requiring
AVeekly Rest Day Employ
ers Chuckle With Glee.
PARIS, Sept. 1. (Special.) After having
for years demanded a law making more
than six days' work in a week illegal, al
most all classes of employes -view with
consternation the realization of their sup
posed dream, for such law goes Into ef
fect September 9. Tomorrow is the last
Sunday on which, it will be legal for res
taurants, bars, theaters, dry goods shops,
barber shops and similar establishments
to be kept open, unless the frantic meet
ings of all trades now taking place shall
effect a postponement of the application
of the law.
It seems hard now to find any one who
wanted the bill passed, but six months
ago the labor leaders were talking of the
injustice of making men work every day,
or Wen of allowing it. Where the shoe
pinches hardest is in the cafes and res
taurants, which are trying to evade the
law by agreeing to exchange their per
sonnel one day in the week, in that way
abiding by the letter of the law, which
forbids an employer to permit the same
man to work for him on seven consecutive
days. Similar ruses are being suggested
in other industries, and are even urged as
the only means of saving from disaster
the system of retaliation.
The plan for eaclf employe or workman
to have his own special day of the week
for rest does not seem to suit the laborer,
who does not consider this a recognition
of the duty of the whole labor world to
stop work once a week.
Employers look upon the situation with
satisfaction, as proving once for all that
the working classes are Incited to discon
tent by professional leaders, and do not
know what they want. Therefore, nu
merous proprietors of large industries,
like hotel syndicates and metallurgical
enterprises, encourage the strict applica
tion of the law rather than otherwise,
though they, like the rest of France, are
confident that the law must be so mod
ified, almost at once, as to be practically
inoperative. The present effort to pre
vent the application of the law probably
will be successful.
MAY BE SCRAMBLE FOR FOOD
Police" Will Enforce Sunday Rest,

PARIS, Sept. 2. (Special.) Parisians
may be forced into a mad scramble to
obtain food before the day ie over, owing
to the preparations being made by the
police to Inforce the new law reauiring
one day of rest in each week for persons
engaged in all lines of business.,,, .This
went info effect this morning. There have
been declarations that the law would be
ignored. The police propose to see that
it is obeyed and trouble is feared. An
imposing detail of police will visit all
shopa and see that there are no viola
tions. Prosecutions will be instituted
wherever there is an attempt to Ignore
Walters in restaurants and in the sa
loons are up in . arms. Waiters have
threatened to quit work In a body if an
attempt is made to force them to rest

that in this county the company will pay
