being increased, now numbers 100 men.
These men are carried on tne Government
rolls as special agents of t.ie Department
of Justice. .
The states in which the greatest
frauds probably will- be unearthed are
Idaho, Montana, "Wyoming and Utah.
The acquittal of Senator Borah of Ida

pressing other Indictments In that
state, which were returned at the same
time that Senator Borah was Indicted.
The Barber Lumber Company, which

Through civil suits, an attempt will be
made to force an abandonment of the
thousands of acres of timber lands
which It Is claimed this company has
obtained through fraudulent entries.
Same System in All States.
The story of the timber frauds Is
pretty much the same in all the moun

are even more extensive than In timber.

Seattle Man Alleges Christian Sci

. 8EATTLE. Wash., Oct 26. (Special.)
Charles Wheeler, of the Seattle Hard
ware Company, today began suit for di
vorce, alleging his wife has neglected
their children, sold off their furniture and
borrowed money to give Christian Science
leaders. Wheeler alleges his wife be
came a Scientist two years after their
marriage and from that time ,on became
a convert to the theory that cold, hunger
and physical sufferings-were imaginary.
He says In his divorce complaint that
his wife allowed the children to go hun
gry, forbade them enough clothing and
kept them awake to prove that their
wants were merely Imaginary. Wheeler,
being hungry, cold and sleepy, took the
part of his children and insisted that
I'hrlstlan Science would not cure their
wants. He could not convince his wife,
so he asked the court today to give him
a divorce and custody ot the children.
"Arch Enemy of His Country," "A
"Ruthless Autocrat," "Frenzied
Demagogue," Calls President.
NEW YORK, Oct. 26. (Special.)
Daring and sensational In the extreme
is an attack upon President Roosevelt
which James R. Day,' Chancellor of
Syracuse University, makes In a book,
"The Raid on Prosperity," which D.
Appleton & Co. are about to publish.
The 'educator holds up the President
as the arch-enemy of his country, as
ruthless autocrat, defying the Con
stitution, a law unto himself, a fren
sled demagogue reveling in the plaud

The chancellor mocks at the "fore
bodings" of the President over the
"tyranny of capitalists" and his "ex
cited talk" about "swollen fortunes,"
"predatory wealth" and "tainted
money.' Continuing, the author says:
-"With the present eruptive adminis
tration and with the chief voices of
the other political party echoing the

Into the crowded industries of an age

BIG DECREASE IN NUMBER
Government Uquor Incense Report
Shows Nearly Half In Eight Coun

War Will Be Poshed.
TOPEKA, Kan., . Oct. 26. (Special.)
There has been a marked slump in tne
consumption of liquors in Kansas during
the past year. A showing made by the
State Temperance Union greatly encour
ages the state administration and those
active in the enforcement of the prohib
itory law. The list of liquor tax receipt
stamps secured by the Union from James
M. Simpson, Internal revenue collector at
Leavenworth, reveal the fact that the
fight against the breweries, saloons and
'joints" in Kansas has not been without
The holders of receipts number 2282 In
the state, as against 3000 a year ago.
Twelve hundred of these holders of re
ceipts are druggists. Last year there,
were a dozen wholesalers, but the. ag
gressive fight made on them by Attorney
General Jackson- has completely routed
Eight of the 105 counties Atchison,
Crawford, Leavenworth, Montgomery,
Cherokee, Sedgwick, Shawnee and Reno,
have 1063 receipti, or nearly one-half of
the total. As an example. Argentine, a
suburb of Kansas City, last year had 28
of these receipts. This year there are
only two. There are 10. counties In Kan
sas In which there are no liquor tax re
ceipts. These are In the extreme western
part of the state Grant, Hamilton, Has
kell, Hodgman, Lane, Morton, Ness,
Stanton. Stevens and Wallace.
The State Temperance Union says that
certified copies of the records of book
10 In the office of the revenue collector,
from which these receipt transcripts are
secured, may be used as evidence In
prosecutions and that the Government
will willingly give them to any prosecut
ing officer. A list of liquor-sellers by
counties is being published and posted in
every community in the state.

St. Louis Banks Take Steps to Pro

ST. LOUIS. Mo, Oct. 26. With the
object of protecting St. Louis against
the stringency existing li the East,
the St. Louis Clearing-House at a
meeting held tonight, decided by unan
imous vote, to issue clearing-house
The action of the clearing-house has
two aims the first is to take precau

financial demands of outside cities and

Is to assure the public of St. Louis
that the local institutions are strong

interests of St. Louis business insti

FIRMLY GRAPPLE TROUBLE
(Concluded on Pas 13.)
Receiver Only Last Resort.
BUTHE. Mont.. Oct. 26. Application for
the appointment of a receiver for the
State Savings Bank, the financial house
in this dity of Augustus Helnze, by
George Dodgston, was brought up this
morning before Judge Bourquin and con
tinued until after the hearing of the peti
tion of the state In the same matter on
November 15. The -court said thai the
bank was now in the hands ot the State
Examiner, who had all the power of a
receiver and that the interests of all par
ties must be considered. The court de
clared that the appointment of a receiver
was a harsh measure and would only .be
adopted as a last resort.
of Immediate general assistance, the vTlear-Ins-House
resolved to Issue Clearlng-Housa
certificates' and also resolved that savins
DanKs should require from their depositors
the notice provided for in connection wltn
such accounts. The immediate cause of the
existing stringency Is conditions not local
to Chlrafo. The Clearing-House banks In
New York City have concluded ' to Issue
Olearlngr-House certificates, while th large
savings banks there also have put the rule
requiring notice of withdrawals in rorce.
The Clearing-Houses of other cities In ses
sion have taken similar action. While there
has been no umiual demand a yet uoon the
Chicago banks, this course, in view of the
general condition prevailing elsewhere,
seems the wisest course to pursue.
It Is believed that this course Is only
temporary, and that the general situation
will soon clear so that normal conditions
will prevail. The Chicago banks are in ex
ceptionally strong position. Not one need
any relief, but. if some such counts were
not adopted, the currency lit this city would
be unduly drawn upon for other communities.

reasoned that in the payment and certlfl

procedure in time of currency stringency
and its object is to prevent the with
