Washington, Sept. 17. Commis
sioner of Internal Revenue) Capons
has written a circular letter to all
Internal revenue collectors and
agents In which, while cautioning
them not to "let up in a vigorous
search" for violations of the law, ho
criticises tho misjudged activity of
Internal revenue employes in the
field. He says "their disposition to
make a record subjects their bureau
to endless annoyances ap'd expense,
.makes a perfect fiasco in the courts
of their undue and hasty action in
seizing distilleries, making unfound
ed assessment's and practically con
fiscating property of law-abiding
citizens who are endeavoring to live
under tho law In a business the
whisky business in any of its forms
always open to suspicion."
Tho letter adds: "I navo on my
desk the record of a case where three
revenue agents or their employes
Jiung around a registered distillery
hoping to find som.e sign of omis
sion on the part of the bookkeeper
lor three weeks, while during that
tlmo there wore live blockade (un
lawful) distilleries in full operation
-within seven miles of tho registered
distillery. By the operation of
the unlawful distilleries the govern
ment was losing probably $300 a day
as tax on tho whisky they wero pro
ducing, whllo these rovenue agents
wero sitting about for 'big game
the registered distillery.
"There are two distinct classes of
offenses that is, sins of commission
and sins of omission. I am as
tounded to find recommendations for
tho seizing of distilleries, tho upset
ting of business enterprises, involv
ing Investment of hundreds of thou
sands of dollars, bccun.se somo clerk
lias failed to properly keep some
blank form prescribed by tho regu
lations. Revenue agents and col
lectors should proceed upon tho pro
position guaranteed us by the consti
tution, that all men are innocent un
til proved guilty, and when they find
minor Irregularities they should as
5umo tho attitude of advisers and
counselors and, by vlrtuo of their
experience in tho service, tell tho
people who know less about It what
is expected of them. On tho con
trary, In too many Instances they
hastily use these sins of omission as
a basis for their own solf-gloriflca-tlbn
and embarrass this bureau and
tho entlro servlco by stupid seizures
Animals Arc Not Familiar with
Cnrs and They Object to
Helena, Mont., Sept. 18. Next
week will witness tho final ship
ment of the solo re.nalnlng herd of
buffalo In the United States to Can
ada, Michael Pablo having disposed
of tho Immense drove to the Cana
dian government, which has pre
pared a park for them near Calgary,
N. W. T. The Initial shipment was
made several months ago and the
trains attracted not a little attention
as they passed through Missoula,
Helena and other cities.
President Roosevelt made strenu
ous efforts to secure the herd for
the Yellowstone National Park, but
congress seemed loath to make the
necessary appropriation. The offi
cials of the Smithsonian Institution
were also alert In their efforts to get
control of tho herd, but could not
care for so large a number, and Pab
lo accepted tho more fancy offer of
the Canadian government.
"The loading of the animals prom
ises to be exciting," said Pablo.
"There will be far more trouble this
time than before, and heaven knows
we had a tough tlmo then, for the
animals had never seen a car or en
gine before and It was with the
greatest dldcuty wo got them loaded.
"All of the outlaws will be in this
lot, as they ran away tho time tho
others wero rounded up, and they
wero too far away to chase. This
time they will havo to go and there
will bo some long runs after them.
They will bad loading, too, and they
will certainly make It warm for the
leaders when they are placed In the
corrals at Ravalli. There will be
300 buffaloes In this shipment, not
counting the calves, of which there
aro a largo numbor."
Tho Pablo herd has been forming
for many years. The Jones herd of
Kansas was split, a few being sent
to tho Yellowstone Park and tho
balance to Ravalli, where they havo
ranged for years on the Flathead
reservation and, being unmolested,
havo multiplied rapidly. Whether
tho animals will be able to withstand
tho rigors of a Canadian winter Ms
doubted by many, although the Flat
head Is a warm, protected valley
abounding in rich feed.

Blue Ribbon to England.
Berlin, Sept. 18.-Public attention
Is centered upon the reports of the
steamship Lusltania's performance,
press comments generally reflecting
the elation felt because the laurels of
the transatlantic speed records still
belong to the Germans. Ine build
ing of English turbine boats has
ueen regarded here all along as a
measure aimed .expressly at the'lr
German rivals. The Lusltania's
Inability to lower the Deutschland's
average speed record is considered a
sign , that the blue ribbon will re
main here Indefinitely.
The officials of the German
steamship companies, however, are
less Jubilant. "The Lusitania failed
to break the average speed record,"
said an official of one German line
this morning. "But this trial Is not
conclusive. Nobody can tell what
she will do later. It Is still possible
for her to capture the prize, and the
Germans will then be obliged to
make heroic efforts to retake su
premacy. Possibly we must consider
tho advisability of following the
British example and adopting tur
bines." Hamburg, Sept. 14. German
marine critics here say that although
It has been asserted that there was
no intention to drive the Lusitania
during her first trip, there can be
no doubt that the great hopes placed
upon her performance were unreal
ised. They also say that It was not
really her maiden voyage, because
she had been on trial trips for more
than a month, Had made a voyage to
Gibraltar and return, and had
sailed approximately 3000 miles be
fore she started for New York. She
was expected to make twenty-four
and a half to twenty-five knots, but
it Is scarcely believed likely she will
be able to attain the hoped-for

B. Parker, former democratic nom
inee for president and Samuel W.
McCall, member of congress from
Mass., were the principal speakers
today at the Constutlonal Day cele
bration at the Jamestown fair.
Judge Parker In alluding to tho
President's view that the federal gov
ernment needs an Increase of power
which Judge Parker declared had
been deliberately withheld from It by
tho states and people when the gov
ernment was created, declared there
Is a way to transfer the power to the
federal government but he said no
amount of labor would persuade the
states to surrender their homo rule
of ours In sufficient measure to meet
the President's views as to tho na
The Judge said ho did not know
for what reason the President had
arrived at his conclusion that tho
government should be seized with
power not granted It by the consti
tution. It is to protect people and to
defend the constitution, the speaker
said. The President is not attempt
ing to acquire this power by deceiv
ing the people, on the contrary, ho
states with perfect frankness what
he thinks and how ho proposes It
shall be done. There are others of
us, said the Judge, who believe
powers were wisely distributed by
tho constitution and such should
Bpeak. Many people have not had
time to study tho constitution and
these are naturally inclined to be im
pressed with the suggestion that
while the constitution did very well
when It 'was made, that wo have out
grown It. Judge Parker advocated
that beforo It Is too late thoso op
posed to the federation Idea should
enter the lists and champion our con
stitutional system In Its integrity.
