The trouble is that some recent 'snap

revealed the fact, that she at least
"looks her age." . Alexandra has had

New York, Sept. 3.Politlclana are
somewhat pusaled to know where the
present trjp of Colonel William Ji Bryan
to Now York has to do with politics or
religion. When the colonels program Is
considered, the puzzlement would seem
to be Justified. .' .
Here it Is; . 1 '
Thts afternoon he had a long con
ference with Norman E. Mack, chair
man of the' Democratic national commit
tee. They met at the Hoffman House,
anu K Is understood went over the whole
.political situation. Then he tool; lunch;
eon with Rev, Dr.. "Wilbur Chapman, the
famous evangelist, and discussed with
him Dr. Chapman's coming round-the-world
evangelistic tour. ,
Onest of Mayor Oaysor.
At 4 this afternoon Bryan went down
to 8t. James, L. I., where he Is to be
the guest of Mayor Gaynor. This even
ing he was driven over' to Stoneybrook,
L. J., where he preached an evangelistic
He will spend tomorrow morning as
the guest of the mayor, cominc to New
York, in the afternoon to b the guest
of Dr. Christian F.1 Relsuer, formerly of
In the AVAninaf Iia will nrmnh tit
Grace M. E. church, of which Dr. Relsuer
Is pastor. '
A pretty well mixed program, and one
calculated to puzzle the politicians! '
To add to the wonderment of the
politicians, there la a well founded re
port that Colonel Bryan will, before he
leaves the city, have a long conference
with Governor Woodrow Wilson, of New
Have Betpect for Strength.
The men who run New York Demo
crat politics have no particular love
for the Nebraska evangelist, but they
have a very whole lot of respect for
his strength throughout the country
and when he is in , these parts follow
his movements with the keenest In
terest. Hence the conference with Gov
ernor Wilson will be discussed wher
ever politicians meet.
Naturally, the New York leaders will
favor the nomination of Governor Har
mon, of Ohio, for the Democratic nom
ination, but there Is a strong following
for. both Wilson and Clark among the
rank and file of the party, and in na
tional affairs It is the policy to let
the rank and file have pretty much what
they went.
The manner in which Speaker Clark
has taken up the gauntlet thrown down
. by President Taft has made him many
friends here. The fact, too, that Wil
liam R. Hearst appears to favor Mr.
Clark puts him in the running with
Tammany.' The Tammany leaders dis
like Brfn but they hate Hearst. Nev
ertheless they have felt Hearstls clan
and are not anxious for a run-in with
him If it can be avoided.
Harmon Beport Interests.
Much Interest was 'aroused hWre by
the report from Columbus that Gov
ernor Harmon is being urged to stand
for another term as governor. Opinions
differ as to where such action will help
his boom for the presidential nomination
or take hfm out of the. race altogether.
A man high in Tammany the other
day thus outlined the probable action
of New York at the next Democratic
"We probably will put the name of
Governor Dix to the convention," he
said, "not with the idea that he can
be nominated, but to give us a chance
to' look over the field after we get to
the convention."
In the Republican camp Taft is the
only name mentioned. That the presi
dent will get the vote of New York la
as certain as anything In politics can be.
Claims Wot Begarded Seriously.
The claims of the insurgents that
they will have the votes of 12 states
in the convention is not regarded . as
serious. Much-Is expected by the Taft
men from the president's swing around
the circle whloh begins on the seven
teenth of the month. Lucian Wheeler
of the secret service leaves on Monday
in ad va nte of the president and win con
fer with the local authorities to make

have become alarmed, it is said, by
' the Condition of the party in Illinois.
:- Should either Governor . Deneert or

lmr disaffection would, work against
both, . and the..;,' progressive ; element
would not support Denenn, while the

Sir Ganflle Cave-Brown-Cave, soldier of fortune, as a cow puncher.
New York, Sept 2. Sir Genille Cave-Browne-Cave,
a descendant of the Cru
saders, head of one of the oldest and
proudest families in England, soldier of
fortune, cow puncher, and rake, is now
a recruit and Janitor of the Salvation
Army headquarters in Brooklyn, N. Y.
The story of the baronet's life is one
that is seldom found today outside the
covers of adventurous novels. He Is 42
years old and he has crowded in those
years more adventures and sensations
than usually come to a dozen men in a
arrangements so that when the presi
dent arrives in town he will find every
thing running like clock work.
If there is a banquet, the sea.ts of
the party will be picked out. stands upon
which the president is to make his
speeches will be inspected and minor
details looked after.
Agent Wheeler has had much experi
ence in this line, both with ex-President
Roosevelt and President Taft, and
when the latter leaves Beverly he will
have the satisfaction of knowing that
everything is arranged.

Corslcana, Texas, Sept. 2. Former
United States Senator R. Q. Mills of
Texas died at his home here today.
Senator Mills was the author of the
188S customs bill known as the Mills'
tariff, and for many years a leading
member of congress, and was born in
1833 near Salem, Ky. He moved to
Palestine, Texas, in 1849 and soon after
began the study of law. In 1872 Mr.
Mills was nominated by acclamation for
congress and entered upon his long and
distinguished career at once. He was
chairman of the ways and means com
mittee of the house when he drew the
Mills tariff bill, upon which the presi
dential election was contested.
Representtive Mills ' entered the
United States senate In March, 1892, as
the successor of Senator Chilton.

Henry George was eulogized last
night at a meeting held at the East
Side Baptist church, at East Twentieth
and East Ankeny streets, ln celebra
tion of the seventy-second anniversary
of the birth of the great single tax ad
vocate. Speeches were made by a number of
prominent single taxers, among whom
were F. E. Coulter. E. S. J. McAllister,
president of the Oregon Single Tax so
ciety; H. V. Wagnon. A. 8. Cridge, A- M.
Hines and Charles H. Hartman.
In ringing speeches' the struggles of
Henry George to uplift the downtrodden
were pictured, and of his sacrifices to
spread the gospel of what the speeches
termed to be the greatest economic
truth of the ages.

Scares Ministers.
"The church today cannot espouse the
truth," he said. "Preachers can no
more preach economic truth as taught
by Henry George flian they can preach
the simple truth of Christ."
The speaker 6trongly condemned the
system and conditions resulting there
from, which, he said, bound the hands
of ministers of the gospels until their
messages were but mockery.
"There is no more barren field in all
the 'world today than In the Institutions
that bear his name to plant the truth
of the Nazarene." he said. "No man ev
er knew Henry George that did not love
him. Not man ever came In touch with
him but felt the uplift of his great spir
it. No man ever looked upon his form,
watched his movements, and caught the
silver rhythm of that matchless voice
but felt he was a prophet of God."
The speaker then compared him to
Moses. Samuel, Exekial and other proph
ets of the scriptures and said none was
more truly sent by God to deliver a
message than Henry George. -fv

which Surrounds divorces such as those
obtained by John Jacob Astor, Frank J.
Gould, and other notables among the

supreme, court today by Justice Goff
as contrary to the best Interests of the
' Justice Goff handed down a decision
coring this practice of. getting rid of
an Irksome husband or wife by the
secret divorce route, in connection with
his Judgment that A. P. Lelghton, a
wealthy contractor. Is entitled to a de
cree of a,bnoute. divorce from MaHon

Trial Was Secret.
The' trial was held secretly before
referee and nothing might have been
made public concerning the case ..had
Bof the lawyers for the two parties
requested that Justice -Goff should "seal
th ""tapers." Judge Goff said:
"The report of the referee should be
confirmed and the decree awarded. No
further observation would be neces
sary were it not fbr the stipulation and
request by the attorneys that the tes
timony and report be sealed.
"This mealis that the record of an
action at law should be held In In
violable secrecy. This Is the only rea
son" that can be rationally . advanced to
Justify, the exception and It Is both
fallacious and mischievous.
Only Oat Cause Possible.
"I is common knowledge that In this
state a divorce can be decreed on only
one' cause adultery of one of the par
ties. Were it the general rule to sup
press testimony in all divorce cases, its
propriety and usefulness might be de
fended, but it is a gross delusion to
attempt to conserve public morals by
the suppression of the testimony in
one case while in- hundreds of other
cases the meritorious details are pub
licly narrated.
"This suggests the idea of privilege
and favoritism. Of all evils that may
assail the administration of Justice, this
is the most insidious. The request to
seal is denied."
Operations to Wait Until a
Further Appropriation
Is Made.
Work on the construction of the large
car repair shop of the O.-W. R. & N.
company in the Alblna yards was or
dered discontinued yesterday afternoon.
General Manager J. P. O'Brien stated
last night that discontinuation of the
work had nothing to do with the threat
ened strike, but that the step was taicen
because of lack of further appropria
tion to carry on the work.
The building is of corrugated iron
construction and when completed will
have cost approximately 75,000. The
sum of $40,000 has already been ex
pended and Mr. O'Brien stated that the
building will be of no value until fully
completed. He says work will be re-
inumou m liuauj ai ine reijuirea imouni
I jB ma(je available.
We found our fund on hunrf
ning low," said Mr. O'Brien, "and so
decided to stop work on the building
until a new appropriation can be made.
We have already expended $40,000 and
will spend $30,000 more in completing
the building. It has nothing ta do with
the strike talk, of which I know noth
ing except what 1 glean from the news
papers. We will continue work on the
building aa soon as an appropriation is
made for the required amount."
