Recognize Strength of Opposition
and Has Begun to Cry "Corrup
tion" Through UU Paper.
ington, May 2. Anti-Bryan Democrats
derived much comfort from the New York
interviews with the "peerless leader," for
In those talks Mr. Bryan clearly showed
an appreciation of the strength of the
opposition, and indicated his purpose to
exhaust every means at hia command in
order to land the nomlnatipn at Denver.
The opposition has felt for several weeks
that It could prevent Bryan's nomina
tion if the two-thirds rule Is maintained
in convention, and feels doubly sure of it,
now that Bryan has declared his 'desire
to have the two-thirds rule abrogated and
a-majority rule substituted. Eut the anti
Bryan men are as greatly pleased over
the fact that Bryan, through his news
paper, Is now charging that money is
being corruptly used to secure and hold
one-third of the convention against him,
and thus prevent hia nomination. The
cry of corruption Is one of the first signs
of weakness in a political fight; It is the
cry of the defeated.
No man. has ever charged . Governor
Johnson with being a corruptionist; bis
reputation is sound. Likewise there is
no more respected man in the - entire
Democratic party than Judge Gray, of
Delaware. Yet Johnson and Gray are
two conspicuous figures In the anti-Bryan
crowd, and Bryan will have difficulty in
convincing the rank and file of the party
that a movement led by Johnson and
Gray, or either, 1 a-movement financed'
by crooks. Johnson, young In politics,
and admittedly a man with a future, re
gardless of -what may 'happen In the cam
paign this year, can not afford to throw
away his future by entering upon a cor
rupt campaign to prevent Bryan's nomi
nation. Judge Gray, who is not an active
candidate for the nomination, would not,
after a, long i and spotless, career be
smirch himself by bribery. The high
standing of these two prominent anti
Bryan Democrats serves to discredit the
criea of Bryan, so fa? as his charge of
bribery is concerned. "
Whether or not Mr. Bryan can have the
two-thirds rule abrogated is a question
for future determination. If he succeeds,
he will unqestionably be nominated: If
he fails, his nomination is doubtful. In
the latter event, the opposition will have
to hold together, in support of some ona
candidate, or, after a protraeted fight,
Bryan may get enough votes on the
break-up to make sure his nomination.
Up to April 20 Bryan had 13 d "legates;
there were opposed to him 307 delegates.
It takes 673 delegates to nominate, if the
two-thirds rule prevails, and Bryan would
have a hard light, under ordinary circum
stances, to g3t enough delegates to give
him the nomination. The South is de
cidedly doubtful this year, and New Eng
land is Inclined to send anti-Bryan dele
gates to Denver. If the opposition, which
seems to haveNew York, Pennsylvania,
Delaware, Minnesota. New Jersey, ' New
Hampshire and Rhode Island, making a
total of 207, can get the rest of New Eng
land and half a dozen Southern Stat;s,
Mr, Bryan's goose would be cooked to a
turn. But It Is Impossible to figure out
how the opposition could roll up' enough
votes to prevent his nomination If the
rule should be changed, and a majority
should be given the power to nominate.

LONDON, May 2. (Special.) The

Field) of 125,000 In Jewels last Fall,
taking them from her hunting lodge
at Rugby, has been discovered, but no
trace of the princely loot has been
Tne burglar was quite an artist. By
day he conducted a small dry goods
business in Leicester, being one of the
highly-respected merchants of the
place, and by night he "burgled" right
and left. On Sunday he taught in Sun
day school, and his particularly ex
emplary life and character won for
him the local prize known as the
"Town Hundred." This consisted of
100 pounds sterling, or $500. which is
advanced for 12 years without Interest
to especially worthy young men to en
able them to start In business.
Denounced His Own Crimes.
His burglaries caused a sensation.
In addition to cleaning out three hunt
ing boxes in one week, he committed
several burglaries In Leicester Itself
and in the neighborhood of his. own
house. These aroused keen local ap
prehension, for John Spencer, the
model merchant, Sunday school teacher
and burglar, organized a public meet
ing which he addressed himself and
protested eloquently against the in
efficiency of the police protection of
He was canght in the act of robbing
a place on April 9. He fought des

In bis burglaries Spencer used drugs
to stupefy the sleeping Inmates of
Houses he entered. In one case a child

Would Exclude Blacks, Portuguese
Natives and Chinese Also
Favors Eight-Hour Pay.
LONDON, April 25, Important recom
mendations a to labor on the Rand have
been made by the commission appointed
by the Transvaal government to inquire
into the gold mining Industry. The dom
inating Idea is a large Industrial white
population and the gradual elimination of
black labor. -
The commissioners maintain the' mines
can adjust their organization to the em
ployment of 1 a greater proportion of
whites and. a- less proportion of blacks
without materially increasing the cost of
production prevailing at the beginning of
The commissioners recommend:
The gradual stoppage of the Importa
tion of Portuguese -natives. It Is of opin
ion that thera is no essential difference
between the importation of Chinese and
of Portuguese natives, both being equally
The .abolition of the pass law, because
that would make it impossible to enforce
native contracts, and native recruiting
would stop.
Legislation -compelling the employment
of eno white miner for each machine
, An eight-hour day.
Taxation of unworked claims, no claim
being "worked" unless a definite number
of whites are employed 1n it.
Stricter measures to stop the illicit gold
buying, which prevails to a great extent.
The commissioners assert theadoption
of a white labor policy would result -in
the establishment of the 1900-7 basis of
a white industrial population of 36,000
males, with an annual distribution Of
ten and a half millions sterling in wages
and salaries, as against five and a quar
ter millions sterling distributed in 1906-7,
The commissioners recognize that in
securing the complete abandonment of
colored labor a reasonable time must be
allowed, so as to prevent industrial dis
location. The opinion on the Rand Is that the
adoption of these recommendations would
mean, in the long run, that the natives
would be entirely excluded from the
mines a consummation for which the
Labor party in the Transvaal has long
been agitating.
Replying to Sir Gilbert Parker In the
House of Commons as to whether the
Chinese in the Rand mines, as their con
tracts expired, would be allowed to re
cruit for the mines on the same basis,
and be governed by the same regulations
as the natives now employed. Mr.
Churchill said:
"Every Chinaman must be deported as
soon as his Indentures expire. Thereafter,
no Chinaman will be allowed to enter the
Transvaal unless he enters freely, and to
that the peopls of the Transvaal are, I
believe, unalterably opposed."

Railroadmen Predict Early Comple
tion of Milwaukee Line.
TACOMA, Wash., May 2. (Special.)
Within ten months the Chicago, Mil
waukee & St. Paul Railroad will be
completed into Tacoma. This was the
prediction made today by a prominent
railroad man, who has been keeping
in close' 'touch with the progress of
the Chicago, Milwaukee & SL Paul.
To the two piledrivers now working
on the terminals for the railroad at
the mouth of the Puyallup River three
more pile-drivers will be added in a few
days and the work will be expedited. En
gineers of the railroad have been look
ing into the matter of foundations for
the big warehouses to be built on the
company's terminal grounds. . Contrac

West Not Shouting for Roosevelt,
Says Governor Curry.
ington, May 5. "Talk of a third term
for Roosevelt is not heard much Jn
the West," said ' Governor Curry, of
New Mexico, in a recent Interview in
this city. Coming from this source, the
statement Is very significant, especially
when considered with what followed.
"In my territory," continued the Gov
ernor, "the people have accepted the
President's declaration and are in -favor
of the nomination of Secretary
Taft. I do not believe Colonel Roose
velt could be induced to accept the
nomination. From my knowledge of
him. I am euro that he meant what ho
said when he reiterated that under no
circumstances would he be a candidate
for or accept another nomination. It
seems to me unfair to the President,
therefore, to revive the talk of a third
term. The President wants to see Sec
retary Taft nominated, and I believe
the people want Taft. I know that In
the part of the West from, which I
come the sentiment is unanimous for
the Secretary of War."
Governor Curry is one of the Presi
dent's closest friends, and no man has
a greater admiration for Mr.' Roosevelt-
If the president would under any
circumstances consent ' to accept an
other nomination. Governor Curry
would, be the first-man to take off
his coat and work for But the
Governor, knowing the President as he
does, and enjoying his confidence to
an unlimited degree, has no doubt as
to the President's sincerity. Therefore
he is not booming Roosevelt for re
nomination, but is going to the extent
of discouraging third-term talk. It is
rather remarkable that the other rec
ognized friends of the Fresjd,ent tha
men who are elosest to hlm--take the
same poaiticn as Governor Curry, and
insist that the President will not ac
cept another, nomination. '! 'v :
In spite of what, .'the' President's
friends say. the self-appointed Roose

of this bureau is Offensive to the, .Pres
ident, for It places'him-na'alse--;llght
before the public, avul mukefc It ap
pear that while declaring one thing be
Intends doing another. ' '"
Many inquirits come back: to Wash
ington from reputable ' papers which
have received the anonymous and gra
tuitous third term copy, indicating that
responsible editors are afraid of the
stuff, coming as it does from n un
known source, and conflicting, as it
does, with the public iterations and re
iterations of the President. Neverthe
less, this copy finds its way into some
of the smaller papers, and Is printed
periodically in a subsidized paper In
Washington City, in the hope of induc
ing its use elsewhere.
But this press bureau stuff weighs
light alongside the interview with Gov
ernor Curry, who is in a position to
know, and who does know, how the
President feels. If the Roosevelt third
term press bureau were operating un
der the approval of the president, Gov
ernor Curry would not be advocating
the nomination of Taft and deprecat
ing the continuation of the third term

Association to Bring Good Times
Sends Address Chicago Banker
and Merchant Predicts Re
covery After Election.
CHICAGO, May 2. (Special.) Steady
and certain revival of business Is pie
dlcted by' men of affairs in Chicago.
The announcement today that St. Louis
business men had organized a "Na
tional Prosperity Association" brought
the information from Chicago's com
mercial leaders that, with a bountiful
harvest and a happy ending of the
Presidential election, prosperity is sure
to return. It is now on the way, they
add, and will gradually swell and
Good Crops, Good President.
"So far as the banking business is con
cerned, it is better than one would think i
from the superficial indications," said !
James B. Forgan. president of the First
National Bank. "I look for substantial
recovery in the Fall, If the crops are as
good as the indications are they will be,
and If the National election results satis
factorily. The. business world is meas
urably waiting upon these two eventuali
ties. If the crop is as large as some peo
ple expect, and if the right man Is elected
President, improvements all around will
be marked, in my opinion."
Harry. A- Wheeler, chairman of the
ways and means committee of the
Chicago Association of Commerce, was
even more optimistic than Mr. Forgan,
though he agreed on all substantial
points with the banker
Boom Is Foreshadowed.
"Business is already good and the
improvement is to be steady, as I view
the situation, ' said Mr. Wheeler. "It
Is true that business men are showing
conservatism, but that should encour
age everybody, as It is a good sign.
"I know the industrial situation is not
what It might be, but It is getting better.
People talk about the large number of
men who are idle, but that is always
the case at this time of the year in
the large cities. On the whole I look for
a revival In all lines of business. Present
conditions foreshadow a boom. With the
election out of the way in a few months
and immense crops in the barns and
elevators, the Nation should be in better
financial shape than the most sanguine
expected last Winter."

Offering Reward for Kidnaping -of
Ex-Governor Taylor.

Darrow, who wi the chief counsel in
ths defense of Haywood, Pettlbone and
Moyer of the Western Federation of
Miners, a Boise, Idaho, was here today

Fred D. Warren, editor of the Appeal to
Reason, whose trial on the charge of
sending "scurrilous, defamatory and
threatening" matter through the malls,
will ba railed In the Federal Court in
Fort Scott . next Monday.
" The charge against Warren is based
upon the mailing of a printed reward of
$100 for the kidnaping of ex-Governor
Taylor, of Kentucky. The Appeal to

the purpose of calling attention to the
decision if - the United States Supreme
Court that the removal of the officers of
the Wesetern Federation of Miners from
Colorado to Idaho for trial was not an
Illegal proceeding. The Appeal to Reason's
reward indicated a desire to have ex
Governor Taylor kidnaped and taken from
