that there shall be no more serious accidents to mar the closing days of the practice period the offi cials of the Auto Club of America in charge of the light car and grand prize races have warned the more reckless of the foreign drivers that greater care must be exercised in the futureSavannah is racing mad and more than a score of arrests were made Sunday for violations of the speed lawsThe city already is filled with a host of visitors and when the final rush arrives the hospitality of the citizens so abundantly in evidence will be taxed to the utmost to provide for the throngs attracted by the races on Thanksgiving day and the day before Most of the drivers of the light and cup cars will have their final practice spins this afternoon Tuesday will be devoted to the last touches of course preparation and Wednesday morning at 11 oclock eastern time the light car race will be started The distance of this race will be 2058 miles the little mos quito fleet of 15 probable starters making 21 laps of the short 98 mile course The winner of this race Is expected to average about 45 miles an hour The running consequently will require approximately four and onehalf hours the finish being around 330 p m The grand prize on Thanksgiving day which it is declared will eclipse any road race ever held in this coun try and which contains many of the worlds most famous cars and driv ers will be started at 9 a m eastern time The legal distance of this race is 40108 miles or 16 laps of a course which measures 2513 miles In this race an average speed of from 67 to 70 miles an hour is anticipated and the running will require about six hours bringing the finish to 3 p m or after The Savannah Cup as the race popularly is known is the longest of the international events and will test the ability of the drivers to the utmost The strain of hurling a car forward at bursts of speed which will exceed 100 miles an hour and around high banked turns where the slightest de viation means disaster and possibly death is a nerveracking experience at any time but to keep up the ter rific pace for six continuous hours covering a distance almost as great as from Boston to Washington is placing a task upon the drivers in which hazard is the predominating elementThe Savannah course is calculated to coax the utmost of speed from the drivers Immediately after the start following a short turn to the left there is a straight away stretch of four miles down the White Bluff road Short stretches and easy turns soon lead into a second arrow flight of 3 miles in length and 60 feet wide This part of the course was specially constructed for the race a cut being made through a virgin for est of towering pines Along this stretch known as Fer guson avenue Nazarro oneof the Italian drivers has declared the lead ing cars should make a speed of 110 miles an hour The home stretch the third of the long stretches of the course is three miles long and the grandstands are so placed that the cars can be seen coming down a slight incline for nearly two miles In the grand prize race there will be five French six Italian three German and six American cars The for eign drivers and cars are favored in the speculation as to the outcome Two of the drivers engaged are for mer winners of the Vanderbilt cup Victor H Emery who is to drive one of the German cars won the Vander bilt In 1905 and Louis Wagner who this year is a member of the Italian team won the race in 1906 Nazar ro the Italian Is credited with haying made the fastest time ever ac complished in a road race when he recently

progress over Illinois was very slow At Boyd Inu we descended and made a landing stopping 45 minutes We then proceeded but after going only 20 miles landed again and talked to some people We then

accident and with luck favoring us The point where we land ed is about 450 miles from St Louis and our course was a semicircle We were somewhat surprised to find where we landed In order to land we descended from an altitude of 10000 feet having decided that we could not cross the mountain which appeared ahead of us owing to lack of wind and the rising of the sun which increased the capacity of

within the past three weeks have destroyed millions of dollars worth of property in Kentucky the loss of 15000 barrels in the Tom Moore fire at Bardstown bringing the total nmber of barrels of fine Ken tucky whisky that have fed the flames recently up to 72000 In detail this means that the visible supply of whisky has decreased 3600000 gallons or more definitely speaking 288000000 drinks At an average of 25 per barrel which is considered a reasonable figure the loss to the distillers is 1800000 The United States government however comes in for a still heavier loss al though an indirect one This is the tax that would be paid on the whisky The tax is at least twice the value of the whisky which would make the loss to the government between 3 000000 and 4000000 The frequency of fire has caused some suspicion of incendiarism Secret service men have been in the field working on this idea but have not been able to secure any evidence to show that the fires were other than accidental

MONDAY NOVEMBER 23 1908 t THE BURTON STATEMENT r rAfter a visit to Presidentelect Taft at Hot Springs on Saturday N Congressman Burton of Ohio gave VOutand interview on the speakership contest Mr Burton said In discussing the question of tIllx speakership Iam not assuming to speaker fro Taft but only to ex press what seems to me is clearly a correct view of the situation Th Presidentelect made certain prom rises during the campaign One was for a thorough and honest revision of the tariff This does not neces = sarily mean that rates in all abed ules will be lowered or any legiti mate willbbe disregarded It does mean a care fill reexamination of the whole sub ject Besides the tariff there were other promises contained in the par ty platform and reiterated by the Presidentelect which must be fulfilled even at cost of the speaker ship No doubt Mr Taft would oppose Mr Cannon very reluctantly but as the head of his party as well i as Presidentelect he is bound to meet the expectations of the people and to insist on the observances of party pledges The Speaker has great power it repressing legislation If this repres I sive influence should stand in the way there would be but qne course for the Presidentelect to pursue and that is to exert his influence agjjinst obstruction It is tobe hoped there will be such harmony and concert of action between the President elect and i S 4 Speaker Cannon that a contest will be avoided Tnere are few public men so close to Judge Taft as the Ohio Congressman It may be assumed therefore that he correctly outlines the position of the next President The tariffmust be revised That is insisted on by1 the Democratic party and by the progressive wing of the Republicans A The public interest demands that many of the schedules be changed theiI way of effective revision is the pres eat Speaker Joseph Q Cannon He C Vvis a standpatter of the worst land Aand a representative of all the pow ers that prey n in the House of Rep r resentatives During the last several sessions of Congress he has stool i Consistently in the way ofall reforms advoeat d by President Rose v velt Ard every step in advance inr y legislation has been in spite of the vVonobsition of the Speakr iI Speaker Cannon is against any movement relating to the conserva r fismof our National resources or to any systematic scheme of water ways Heis strongly opposed to any ir Vrcguiatlon or control of the great f4 interstate corporations j A contest between him and his sup porters in the National Congress ant tnJudge Taft might payfor all it costs in the way of delayed legislation It would be p battle of giants The Speaker is so strongly entrenched dislodgeii J fhim But Judge does things end Yif he cannot get his yeas by any r 7fj I J r other means hd will undoubtedly fight The overthrpw of the Cannon su premacy would be worth all it costs Foraker has been driven out of pub lie life Haskell and his kind have jeen thoroughly discredited There is a healthier tone among our public servants And the longest step in advance that could be taken would be the defeat for reelection of the present Speaker EMPEROR WILLIAM j If the synopsis given by the New York World of the interview granted 4 by Emperor William is correct there is little wonder that a storm was raised in the Reishtag and through out Germany Summarized the main mints of the interview which took place on the imperial yacht Hohenzollern off Bergen Norway are as follows That King Edward of Great Brit niii had been humiliating him for more than two years and that he was exasperated that Germany was the paramount Power in all Europe and that England was trying to neutralize that power That he lied France in the hollow of his hand and that Russia was of no account since the disastrous war she had waged with Japar That as the PanEuropean war which had been so hiueh talked about was inevitable the sooner it came the better it would be for him be cause he was ready and was tired of the suspense That Great Britain hat been a de cadent nation ever since her victory over the Transvaal and the Orange Free State because hers was an un righteous ungodly cause and Divine judgment was bound eventually t jvertake a powerful nation that waged sucha war That the AngloJapanese alliance was an iniquitous alliance against all the white races Eneland proving absolutely her faithlessness as a Christian nation that Japan was honeycombing India with icdition and flooding it with spies while professing herself to be Englands friend and allyThat the only wav to counteract this alliance was for Germany and America to act together at an early date or America would have to fight the Japanese in 10 months l That in the event of a great wai Eiglalidwould lose many of her large colonies especially those in the Pa cific and that all he would take for Germany would be Etrvot though he would liberate the Holy Land from the yoke of the infidel pyesumably meaning the Sultan That the perfecting of the Zeppelin dirigible balloon would giv Germany a powerful advantage iu war and she was ready to make us of it to the fullest extent PRESIDENTIAL TURKEY Goes

States Telephone Company Say Bell Is Pursuing Pol icy of Buying and Selling Ex changes to Eliminate Competition Bill Purports to Show the Earn ings Since Organization In 1878 and Numerous Increases In Capital Cleveland 0 Nov 23 United States Judge Tayler granted an in junction against the American Tele phone and Telegraph company Bell long distance system and the Cen tral Union Telephone company Bell company operating In Ohio Indiana and Illinois restraining them from interfering with the business of the independent companies operating in those and adjoining states The injunction was granted upon the application xof Clarence Brown general counsel and James S Brai ley Jr president of the United States Telephone company which is the independent long distance tele phone company operating in Ohio and adoining states in a suit brought by that company It is charged the Bell is pursuing the policy of buying independent ex Changes or selling Bell exchanges where there are competing compa nies and in some instances absorb ing independent companies by mer ger or consolidation or division of territory so as to eliminate competi tion and establish a complete Bell control This is said to be in viola tion not only of the Sherman anti trust law but also of the laws ct Ohio Indiana Illinois and other states in which the companies oper ate This policy is said to be shown by the official reports of the officers and directors of the Bell company to their stockholders A complete history of the Bell organization from 1878 to the present including their financial transactions and issue of stock is given It ap pears from the bill that the original value placed upon the Bell patents in 1878 was S400UOO In 179 this was increased to 650000 A year later the value of the same property as represented by the capital stock was increased to 500000 or nearly 800 for 1 In 1900 the capital stock had been increased to 25000000 and in April of that year the present American Telephone and Telegraph company took over the Bell patents from the old company and issued two shares of its stock for each share of the old stock or in other words gave 50 000000 of its stock for the 25000000 of the stock of the old company The capital has since been increased to 250000000 The bill also charges that instead of using their enormous profits to de velop business they used them in paying exorbitant dividends and in acquiring control of competitive properties in order to suppress competi tion They are charged with issuing many times the original cost of the stock iu stock dividends and paying at times 18 per cent a year in divi dends Three Men Saved Boston Nov 23lihe men includ ing Captain Obed Knowlton of the British schooner Hugh G lost their lives in a collision in Broad Sound

United States Is to Ex press Thanks For Remission of 14000000 of the Boxer Indemnity First Hears of Dowager Empress Death When Steamer Drops An chor Within Golden GateIs Ac companied by Cousin of Emperor San Francisco Nov 23Convey ing to the American government the gratitude of the Chinese people for remittance of a debt amounting to nearly 14000000 Tang Shao Yi a powerful figure in the affairs of the Chinese empire arrived in San Francisco on the steamer Mongolia With him was Prince Tsai Fu a member of the royal family and a large retinueInation has there arisen occassion for the appointment of such a commission as is domiciled in the Fairmont hotel and never has a foreign power been so strongly represented through diplomatic channels during the period of a crisis of worldwide importance In his honor the dragon flag flew from the mastheads of a score of ves sels in the bay guns mounted on the harbor front boomed out a salute and thousands of his country en silkrobed or silkhatted thronged the dock where his escort landed Not until the Mongolia dropped anchor in the harbor did Tang Shao Yi and his staff learn that the dowager empress of China was dead In Honolulu the cable brought news of the emperors death but said nothing about the dangerous illness that threatened the end of the dowager empress remarkable career It was only when Hsu Ping Chen the con sul general at San Francisco board ed the steamer with a score of cablegrams from the far east tlat the distinguished visitor was acquainted with the full extent of the changes that had occurred since his depar ture Even the habitual oriental reserve did not suffice to conceal his perturbation and while dignitaries ofI the state and government awaited his attention he scanned messages apparently unconscious of their pres ence In accordance with the edict of mourning his entire party vim re main practically secluded during its stay of three days in this city and the local Chinese colonys arrange ments for costly banquets and other forms of entertainment have been canceled In other respects however the mission of the special embassy will be fulfilled and Tang Shao Yi with the 50 members of his retinue will go directiy Washington where he will remain until after the inauguration of Presidentelect William H Taft Accompanying the high commis sioner is Prince Tsai Fu a youth of 21 a member of the royal family a cousin of the late emperor and him self the most blueblooded represen tative of his race who has ever set foot on foreign soil While he bears the title of first secretary to the ejpi bassy his position Is merely honorary and his journey abroad from its educational purpose apartI fqnded as an additional of the obligation conveyed in Americas remittance of so large a portion of the indemnity awarded for da ages sustained during the Boxer out break Once during the day did the self possession of Tang Sbao Yi give way This was several hours after his ar rival when he sat clothed n a mag nificent robe of blue in one of the 22 apartment in the Fairmont He had guardedly snoken of the situation in China and returned noncommittalan relatingltoWashington Finally he was asked to define exactly the meaning of his an usual position and his princely reti nue In reply he said Believe us we have no other purpose than to show the depth of the heartfelt gratitude that the government of China entertins toward the United States for this fresh demonstration of good willTo another pointed question touch- Ing developments which might occur in his country and their bearing upon the relations between the tw6na tions he remarked If there are matters of grave import to be decid ed I shall ddubtless participate in the deliberations You must under stand that during

purpose art would inspire such a tragedy as 3 had witnessed or warn me of dan sw to come Do you hear he said impatiently Mart the door and sit own Just jpring that lock will you We might Ie interrupted 1 was n t at all certain that I should tot wish very earnestly that he might Je interrupted in what Bret Harte Ttould call the subsequent proceed aiaigs But I followed his directions Doddridge Knapp was not less im jresslve at close view than at lon tV c cram Q4r nz rsaro range The strong face grew stronger when seen from the near distance My dear Wilton he said Ive some to a place where Ive got to irust somebody so Ive come back to lOu The voice was oily and per swasive but the keen gray eyes shot wt a glance from under the bushing eyebrows that thrilled me as a warn fig Its very kind of you I said swal Sowing my astonishment with an ef fort Well said Knapp the way you 2ondled that Ophir matter was per youthmuch as 6n your own doings that I J selected you for this job Im much obliged to Mrs KnappI I said politely I was in deep waters 3t was plainly unsafe to do anything hut drift Oh you can settle that with her at r your next call he said good hu snqredly rexused to respond further If I had reo ceived a telegram informing me tha the dispute over the presidency ha beensettled by shelving both Hayes sad Tilden and giving the unanimous Tote of the electors to me I shoul- leave accepted it as a matter of course I took my place unquestion jfiagly as a valued acquaintance o Doddridge Knapps and a particular friend of Mrs Knapps I Yet it struck me as strange that the keeneyed King of the Street had lailed to discover that he was not talking to Henry Wilton but to some one else who resembled him There were enough differences in features and voice to distinguish us anion intimate friends though there were aot enough to be seen by casual ac fuaintauces I had the key in the spokei it is better this time to do our business face t Itcev I dont want to trust messen gers on this affair and even cipher motes are dangerous confoundedly dangerouse Then we had not been close ac quaintances 4r r Ji tc B0BB57fEJbLaCOfPA Oh by the way you have that other cipher yet havent you he askedNo burnt it I said unblush inglyThats right he said It was best not to take risks Of course you understand that it wont do for us to be seen together Certainly not I assented I have arranged for another office Heres the address Yours is Room 15 I have the key to 17 and 16 is vacant between with a To Let sign on it They open into each other You understand Perfectly I said You will be there oy nine oclock for your orders If you get none by twelve there will be none for the dayIf I cant be there Ill let you know I was off my guard for a moment thinking of the possible de mands of Henrys unknown em ployerYou will do nothing of the kind said Doddridge Knapp shortly His voice so smooth and businesslike a moment before changed suddenly to a growl His heavy eyebrows came down and from under them flashed a dangerous light You will be there when I tell you young man or youll have to reckon with another sort ofI customer than the one youve been dealing with This matter requires prompt and strict obedience to orders One slip may ruin the whole planIYou can depend on me I said with assumed confidence Am I to have any discretion T None whatever- I had thus far been able to get no hint of his purpose If I had not known what I knew I should have supposed that his mind was concen trated on the apparent object before fidelityIAnd what am I to do I asked Be a capitalist he said with an ironical smile Buy and sell what I tell you to buy and sell Keep under cover but not too much under cover Betgter and Eppner though Your checks will be honored at the Nevada Bank Oh heres a cipher in case I want to write you I suppose youll want some ready moneyDoddridge Knapp was certainly a liberal provider for he shoved a hand ful of twentydollar gold pieces across the desk in a way that made my eyes openBy the way he continued I dont think I have your signature have n No sir I replied with prompt confidenceWell just write it on this slip then Ill turn it into the bank for your identification You can take the checkbook with you Anything more Thats all he replied with a nod of dismissal Maybe its tomorrow maybe its next month And 1 walked out into Montgomery Street bewildered among the con flicting mysteries in which I had been entangled CHAPTER VI A Night at Bortons Room 15 was a plain comfortable office in a plain comfortable building on Clay Street not far from the heart of the business district It was on the second floor and its one window opened to the rear and faced a desolate assortment of back yards rear walls and rickety stairways The floor had a worn carpet and there was a desk a few chairs and a snelt of law boons The place looked as though Ithad belonged to a lawyer In reduced circumstances and 1 could but wonder how it had come into theI possession of Doddridge Knapp and occuIImntto a spirit of melancholy and locked narrowly toI the opportunities offered by the for attack and defense The walls were solidly built The windowcase adbeen put in to withstand an earth intodthe window furni hed the three ave retreatZThe depression of spirits that pro gressed with my survey of the room deepened into gloom as I flung myself into the armchair before the desk and tried to plan some way out of the tangle in which Iwas involved How was I singlehanded to contend against the power of the richest homegto m I could look for no assistance from the police The words of Detective Coogan were enough to show that only the most convincing 0proof of guilt backed by fear of pub lie sentiment could bring the depart ment to raise a finger
