NEW SUIT LIKELY.
Monmouth Normal Attorneys May
Secure Appropriations Thus.
Salem. Ore. The institution of a
new suit to restrain the secretary of
state from referring to the . people
the bill making a $50,000 appropria
tion for the Monmouth Normal
School, instead of mandamus pro
ceedings to compel that officer to
pay the appropriation, will likely be
the legal means employed by attor
neys to make the appropriation avail
able for the school.
Subsequent to the institution of
the Oregon University case, a suit
was brought by the normal school to
prevent the bill being referred to the
people on the ground of fraud in the
petitions. For a while the members
of the normal school board contend
ed that the failure by the state to
appeal from the judgment rendered
by the circuit court in favor of the
school made this final. They found
themselves confronted, Tiowever,
with a decision by the supreme court
that a private party could not bring
tne suit, and this question when
raised on mandamus, it is generally
conceded, would make the judgment
void. But by the institution of the
new suit, not in the name of a pri
vate party but in the name of the
district attorney here, this decision
would be complied with, and in addi
tion it is contended the state could
be made to admit enough names on
the petition are fraudulent to reduce
the total number of bona fide names
below the number required by the
law on a petition to the bill. The
supreme court held in the Oregon
University case that the work of
seven circulators was fraudulent,
and it will be compelled to hold the
work of the seven circulators in the
Monmouth Normal case is also fraud
ulent. In addition, the attorney gen
eral and the attorneys opposing the
case admitted at the time of the in
situation of the normal school suit
originally, that if the supreme court
held the work of these circulators in
the Oregon University case was
fraudulent, the number of. names on
the petitions asking that the Mon
mouth Normal bill be referred,
would be reduced below the number
required by law. This would make
an appeal to the supreme court prac
tically useless, and if an appeal was
taken, the court would have to ad
here to its former opinion as to the
number of fraudulent names and the
Monmouth school would be sure of
victory, it is declared.
Judge Galloway, in discussing the
subject, declared that he would en
tertain a new suit, provided it was
instituted in time so it could reach
the supreme court prior to that court
taking its recess.
IMPORTANT CASE UP.
Supreme Court Considers Eligibility
of Eight Kansas Electors.
New York. The Kansas primary
election case, which involves a
unique point of great importance in
the machinery of the national elec
1 . : .. 1 i .j i .... . i. x . .- .
uuu, was jam uciuih tuts justices 01
the supreme court here Thursday.
Directly or indirectly the decision
of these justices will settle whether
eight candidates for presidential
electors who have declared they will
vote in the electoral college for
Theodore Roosevelt, may have their
names on the ballot submitted to the
people of Kansas at the republican
party election on August 6. Emer
gency action by the court was neces
sary so that the primary ballots
might be printed in time for the elec
tion. The plaintiffs are the Kansas Taft
leaders, and the action, which takeks
the form of application for a writ of
error, is contested by several attor
neys representing the Roosevelt par
ty, including L. W. Keplinger of To
pekak. Representative 01 instead of
Pennsylvania appears for the appli
The question at issue is a broad
one. The Taft leaders declare the
eight electors they are trying to keep
off the ticket were designated with
the understanding that they should
abide by the decision of the republi
can national convention and that if
the state primary elected them the
result would be contrary ,to the four,
teenth amendment of the federal con
stitution, which forbids any state to
interfere with the freedoiu.and priv
ileges of citizens of the United
The Roosevelt people contend the
voters of Kansas should have the
right of referendum on the decision
of the national convention. The
Kansas law is the only one which
would permit such a referendum.
The supreme court of Kansas, to
which the petition was first submit
ted, held that regardless of the truth
of the charges of fraud and misrep
resentation made against the eight
Roosevelt electors, It had no power
to grant the relief the Taft people
Recall Receives Jolt.
The Dalles, Ore. On the advice
of District Attorney Wilson, County
Clerk Angle has decided to not call
a recall election for County Judge
Lake and Commissioners Stoughton
and Rooper, demanded in a petition
filed with the clerk recently. The
recall Is asked by the opponents of
the county court's plan to erect a
new $150,000 court house. Mr. Wil
son, in his opinion, holds that the
recall amendment is not self-executing
and that the legislature has tak
en no steps to make it effective. The
opponents to the court house threat
en to bring mandamus proceedings
against the clerk to force him to call
a recall election.
Torpedo Fleet at Practice.

Whipple, Hull, Stewart, Preble and
$2,400,000 ANNUAL TRIBUTE.
"Combine" Said to Collect Vast Sums
New York. The statement of
Rose, informer in the Rosenthal mur
der case, that an annual tribute of
$2,400,000 has been exacted by the
police from the gamblers and others
for "protection," is not considered
extravagant by many of those famil
iar with conditions in the underworld
of New York city.
As a matter of fact, the amount
given is nearly $700,000 a year less
than - was collected some 12 years
ago, according to an alleged exposure
of the gambling situation published
by a New York newspaper in March,
1900. This article, which created a
great sensation at the time, alleged
that $3,095,000 was the yearly tri
bute of keepers of gambling houses
to the police and other powers of the
city for "protection."
The article and its assertions that
men "high in .the counsels of Tam
many Hall" had been receiving
money from the gambling combine,
led to the appointment of a commit
tee of five, of which Lewis Nixon was
chairman, to investigate the truth of
the charges. In his official report
Nixon said: -
"There is an organization of men
known as the 'combine' that is or
ganized for systematic blackmail,
and they cloak their workings by
pretending to be paying Tammany all
the money. they collect for the pro
tection which they are supposed to
furnish in its name.
"The men who wish to open places
know whom to see, and having found
that certain men who act in defiance
of the combine's orders are given
short shrift, are naturally inclined
to believe that these men do collect
this money on account of Tamany
Hall and that 1f matters reach a cli
max this organization will protect
them. This accounts for the almost
defiant attitude of the gamblers."
According to one authority, the
amount collected in 1899 by the com
bine was as follows:
Four hundred pool rooms, $300
each a month, $1,440,000.
Five hundred crap games, $150
each a month, $900,000.
Two hundred gambling houses,
$150 each a month, $360,000.
Twenty large gambling houses,
$1,000 each a month, $240,000.
Fifty envelope games, $50 each a
Policy, a year, $125,000.
