Pennsylvania, too, has been using the lino

member of the Rock Island boards since
1002, has not resigned and has no Imme
diate Intention of so dolnjr.
George T. Boggs, assistant treasurer ot
tho Rock island Company of New Jersey
and director In a few of the Rock Island
subsidiaries, said he did not regard rail
road rates as a tax upon the public, bt
causo the public received full value for
their money. He believed directors
Bhould be permitted to exercise their
Judgment in matters of policy unham
pered by public Interference.
This opinion was evoked by a series of
Folk's questions following Boggs' state
ment that he approved the 7,500,000 loan
to the Rock Island Railway Company.
He said he approved both the purchaso
and sale of the Frisco system.
Folk learned from this witness that the
sole source of Income of the Iowa Hold
ing Company was dividends on $71,000,000
worth of railway bonds It held, and that
the sole source of Income of the Rock
Island Company of New Jersey was divi
dends on Its holdings of Iowa Company
The railway company took bonds from
the Rock Island Railroad Company when
It lent the latter concern J7,5OO,O0O. Folk
asked Boggs what these bonds, the solo
Fecurlty for the huge sum, would bring In
the open market. Boggs admitted they
aro practically worthless, and that tho
$7,500,000 Is really a total loss.
Folk asked Boggs If he were not a
dummy director. "I would hardly say
that," replied tho witness.
Mr. Boggs said he did what Reld told
him to, and acknowledged that he had
received a gift of $15,000.
Benjamin F. Yoakum, to whom the
Rock Island sold the Frisco road, wns
the next witness.
"What was your dream of consolidation
when you bought the Chicago and Alton
for the Rock Island?" asked Counsellor
"I was not a principal party to that
dream," replied Mr. Yoakum. "I merely
acted with others in gathering In the
Did the fact that E. H. Harrlman, the
owner of the Alton, was In Europe
then, have anything to do with the pur
chase?" asked Folk.
"Well, it was a propitious time," an
swered the witness.
"Did you not take advantage of Harri
man's absence to buy the road?"
"I would not say that. It happened
that Harrlman was in Europe; It hap
pened that the Rock Island wanted the
Alton, and It happened that we bought
The Inquiry then turned on the pur
chase of the Frisco. Yoakum said that
he had sold the road to the Rock Island
in 1003 at 1C0 and bought it back in 1907
at 3"H' Folk asked him why he bought
back the road. "I believed In It," said
Yoakum, "and I still believe In it." Folk
asked the witness If the consolidation of
the Frisco with the Rock Island was
successful. Yoakum waa doubtful. At
least, he said, the Rock Island waa glad
to sell It back to him, and he negotiated
the resale with Daniel G. Reld.
To do this Yoakum said he went among
tho St Louis men who were Interested
In the Frisco road and Induced them to
agree to buy blocks of stock. He him
self bought $1,000,000 of stock.
Folk asked him if he had known It
was necessary for the Rock Island Rail
rbad Company to get the Rock Island
Railway Company to obtain from the
First National Bank of New York a loan
of $7,600,000 before the resale could la
completed Yoakum said that was none
of his business.
Yoakum admitted that he had resigned
from the Rock Island board at the meet
ing at which it was decided to negotalte
the loan.
Yoakum said that when the Frisco was
sold back to the original Frisco crowd
there was "a friendly dissolution" of In
terlocking directorates.
Counsel Walker, for the (Rock Island,
brought from Mr. Yoakum the statement
that the Rock Island and Frisco, even
after the efforts of Moore, Leeds, Reld
and Yoakum to combine them, were not
strong enough to drive other carriers
from disputed territory.

Belligerents Arrested After Fierce
Tight at Twelfth and Bace.
Representatives of China and Italy
fought today at 12th and Raco streets,
and the conflict became so Intense that
tho United States could not remain neu
tral. For the sake of peace, the bel
ligerents were surrounded by Sergeant
Corcoran and Policeman Strong and taken
to the 11th and Winter streets station.
When tho two Italians and the two
Chinese attempted to explain at once
how It happened, Magistrate Tracy was
driven almost to distraction. By the aid
of two near Interpreters of the tenderloin
the magistrate gleaned the following:
The Italians, Frank Brlzarls and Slg
mund Bogello, of 3U6 East Thompson
street, collided with the Chinese, Charles
Yum and Young Dow, of 931 Rnce street,
at 15th and Race streets, and then fol
lowed a general fight. It ended with tho
Chinese being thrown In the street. Then
thi policemen arrived nnd rounded up all
four. The Chinese were sent to tho
Hahnemann Hospital for repairs and then
brought to the station house to appear
against the Italians.
As brass knuckles were found on
Brlzarls, the police believe the Italians
attacked the Chinese with tho intent of
robbery. Large rolls of money were
found on Yum and Dow. Brlzarls and
Bogello were held without ball for court,
London Trial Not Delayed Because
He Is in Austrian Army.
LONDON. Oct. 17.
The attempt was made in the high
court to prove that the Princess Victor,
of Thurn and Taxis, who was American
born, Is an alien enemy of England, in
asmuch as her husband Is presumably
fighting for hla country, Austria, against
Great Britain and her Allies.
The point arose tn connection, with a.
pending suit brought by the Princess
against Josephine Moffttt, also an Amer
ican woman, as to which is the lawful
wife of the Prince.
Josephine Moflitt's counsel sought to
have the case postponed on the ground
that the plaintiff, as an alien and enemy,
Is not entitled to seek relief tn the Brit
ish courts.
Judge Sargent ruled that. Inasmuch as
the plaintiff's claim was to assert her In
dividual right and not on behalf of the
Prince, she was, under the aliens' act,
entitled to enforce her rights, notwtth
standing the existence of a state of war.
The Judge, therefore, disallowed the
counsel's objection and fixed December 2
for the trial of the suit
Romance Ends When Court Annuls
Runaway Marriage Without Protest.
NEW YORK. Oct. 17 -James Douglas
Moore Gray, an English engineer, who
became an added attraction at an uptown
tango establishment as "Lord Gray," put
In no defense in the Supreme Court yes
terday to the suit brought by Mrs. Ana
bel Gray for an annulment of their run
away marriage In April. Justice Glege
rich may now sign the decree untying
the marriage bonds.
The marriage of the couple was al
most as precipitate as the proceeding
annulling It The wife, whose step
father. Charles Henderson, is a stock
broker, met Gray at a dance tn the Ho
tel Astor Soon afterward Mrs. Hen
derson missed her daughter one morn
ing. She had eloped with Gray.
"Lord" and "Lady" Gray never lived
together. Suit for annulment of the
marriage by Mrs. Henderson, acting- as
guardian for her daughter, was brought
on the ground that Mrs Gray was not
of the legal age of consent when she
married "his lordship."
"Hold on!" cried the proud young
father, as the minister was about to
proceed. "Before the baby Is christ
ened I want to change his name."
-What is the trouble?" the good man
asked, "Ebenezer is a Eood name."
"No matter. We'll call him Harold.
I've Just heard that Undo Kbenzer, the
old fool, has married a woman who is
young enou&t to be hla daughter,"

bushels of tho anticipated 800,000,000. This '
will leave a surplus for exnortatlon nnV'
feed for live stock of 290,000,000 bushels,1 :
the Department estimates.
With favorable conditions thus far In
October tho department looks for a total
production of corn this year of about
2.700,000,000 bushels, against 2,447,000,000 last
year. The total production of all cereals..-
based on tho October 1 condition, will!
bo about 126,760,000 tons, compared wlU.

A potato crop of 381,000,000 bushels U
expected. This would be exceeded only?
by the record crop of 421,000,000 bushels In'
1912. Tho latest forecast ot 23O.O0O.C00 1
bushels of apples Is within 5,000,000 bushels
of the estimated record crop of 1912.
Tho cotton crop improved during Sep,

ern, and Indications point to a crop ofv
more than 15,000,000 bales, second only to'
the crop of 15,693,000 bales In 1911, the
report states.
On October 1 the condition of sugar
beets was 91.9 per cent, of normal. This '
forecasts a harvest of about 4,2i!,OM1
tons, against 5,659,000 tons last year.
Prospects for a heavy orange crop this
year are good, the department says. The '
condition of the crop on October 1 was-
estimated to bo 11.1 per cent, higher than,
iv year ago, and 2.2 per cent, higher than.,
tho ten-year average. The condition of
lemons was estimated to be 36.9 per cent, i
higher than a year ago and 2 per cent,,,
higher than the ten-year average.
Tho department addod to Its report to.
day a survey of the citrus fruit products"'
abroad, based on reports from United
