"What did they eay?" he was asked
'Something like this: 'So that's how
he got "our Bill." Well, we'll get him this
time!' and 'now we get a chance at the
hian who put "our Bill" away. They can't
.laugh at us after this.' "
Vare leaders will not admit there Is
any uprising. "There ain't any orders,"
ono man said. "Vare won't knife Pen
rose." . "Hasn't he sot the nerve?" was asked.
This stung the Vare leader, loyal to
the last ditch.
"Now, don't be too sure about that,"
was the reply. "How about the last day
or, two? You can't tell what they'll do.

They will be quiet orders If any come.

PINCHOT SAYS CHARGE
KNOCKS OUT PENROSE
Washington Party Nominee Declares
Senator's Answer Lame.
Glfford Plnchot. Washington party
nominee for t'nlted St.ites Senator, de
clared today that the North American's
charge against Senator IVnrose was the
finishing blow to his opponent
He discussed the subject at the Hotel
Adelphla, where he Is stopping during his
campaign in this city
"You ask mo whether I believe the
"North American's statement will atfect
.Mr. Penrose's chances," he said. "Of
course It will. The lame reply made bv
Sir. Penrose is his refusal to aceppt the
Issue. He leaves the North American's
statement substantially unanswered, and
uses the customary device of the man in
the wrong the device of asking a lot of
questions which have no reference to tho
point at Issue.
"Not only the statement of The North
'American, but almost equallv the Pen
rose reply, will be Influential In costing
.Penrose votes. This Is by far the hard
est blow that has been struck at blm
'since the campaign began. If the Pen
rose cause were not already lost this
would cost him the election."
"Are you going to withdraw?" Mr
"Plnchot was asked.
" "Ton know very well what my answer
ywould be to that." he replied.
. "Don't you think that with only two
candidates In the field the chances of
defeating Mr. Penrose would be much
"That would be true under ctrtaln con
ditions." said Mr Plnchot. "If the two
men In the field were Palmer and Pen
'rose the result would bo the overwhelm

men In the rleld were Penrose and Pln

"It .Is the same old question. The only

COPPER WIRE PHICE FIXING.
The Government prosecutor, who Is a
former Secretary of War, declared In his
argument today that the copper wire

It was pointed out today that the Cop

The Government also contended that
after the formal wind-up practically all
of the same members came together, and
among them the representatives of the
American Steel and Wire company
One or more of them would announce
prices, and then left the meetings. As a
rule, they sold to the trade at the prices
which were announced.

Mrs. Carman looked at Doctor Carman
kneeling over the body of the slain wom
an, the girl said. The doctor's wife,
stilt grasping the revolver, staved in the
room but n minute, going out by the way
nf the waiting room.
Mrs. Cnrman did not say anything
more to her. the girl said, when she
entered the kitchen. Asked bv District
Attorney Smith whether she thought Mrs.
carman had killed her husband when she
sold "I shot him." the maid answered that
she didn't know whom she had shot. She
said that neither Mrs. Carman nor Doctor
Carman sDld a word while she was in the
ofllce w here the dead woman was lying.
Mr. Graham, attorney for Mrs. Carman,
scored n big surprise, on the State when
he Introduced a statement made by the

"I have shot him," she said, according
m the maid.
REVOLVER IN HER HAND.
"Did Mrs. Carman have anything In
her hand?" asked the District Attorney.
"Yes." replied the witness, "she had a
long blue revolver. I was standing In
the pantry door when she rushed back
Into tho room and ihe came right over

'What are you going to do now?'

"I went Into the office then and she

and a short man were In there. Mrs.
Carman hnd gone In there with me. The
body of the woman was Ivlng on the
floor near the operating table. I stayed
In there but about a half a minute,
going back to the kitchen."
ASKED NOT TO TELL.
"Where did Mrs. Carman go?" asked
"I don't know." was the reply. "She
went out the door of the office toward
the walling room and I didn't see her

to my room before time for me to get

would forgive her. She told me Bhe would
take care of my little boy as long as
he lived If anything ever happened to
me. Then she asked me not to say any
thing about what had happened."

Summarizing, the committee said:
"A perceptible chango In sentiment
toward the Judlelnl recall Is slowly but
surely showing Itself among the people
of the different States. In many locali
ties Its truo nature Is not yet understood.
In most States tho average voter has, ps
jet, Insufficient appreciation of Its bane
ful character. Tho work of education
must be continued. Tho signs, however,
of Increasing enlightenment, duo to tho
persistent efforts of its opponents, are
everywhere apparent. Former leading
advocates of judicial recall arc saying
less about It. Some of them nre now
saying nothing about It. Some have
apparently given up the idea of tho re
call of Judges and havo turned to tho
Judicial decision recall as a substitute.
DISCRIMINATION IS CHARGED.
The report of the special committee to
suggest remedies and formulate proposed
laws complained that tho House Judiciary
Committee had failed & keep Its promise
to give It n hearing on antl-tiust legisla
tion. Of the anti-trust legislation It said:
"It discriminates In favor of labor or
ganizations, forbids injunctions In labor
controversies which would be granted In
other cases and make: certain acts legal
when done hy labor unions which are Il
legal when done by others.
"We condemn the Standard Oil manu
facturers for endeavoring In the early
days of their organization to drive com
petitors out of business. What Is this
but a boycott? This was considered so
criminal by the Senate that Senators de
clared they would rather have their cot
ton destroyed by the weevil than use any
Rockefeller money to prevent tho plague.
Yot heio wo have a proposed art wh!:h
makes It legal for a laboi union to per
suade persons to cease to patronize or
to employ any party to a dispute. This
Is a boycott.
"Can It have occurred to tho gentle
men who propose this legislation that If
the courts cannot decide these contro

TO GRANT DOOIN
Former Philly Manager Has
Served Club 13 Years.
Resigned Position, Not
Ousted, He States.
After 13 years of service ns a play.
and five years ns manager, Charley Dooln
was refused his unconditional release by
President W. F. Baker, of tho Phllajt.
phln National League Club. "I a,
twlco for my release," nald tha ex-Phiny
manager this morning, when talking over
his retirement and the appointment of
Pat Moran as leader of tha Phils for 19H,
"nnd twlco It was refused me."
This necessarily makes Dooln's plana
for the future uncertain. Charley nlso
made It plain that ho resigned his posl.
Hon ns manager nnd wns not forced out.
"I want It to bo understood that th
Phillies did not throw me out. as has
appeared from somo of the newspaper
nrtlclcs," said Dooln, "I quit tho club
two months ngo and told them I could
no longer act as manager. But for some
reason President Baker did not see fit to
mako this known.
"Tho main reason why I did not ears
an longer to continue as mannger was
tho failure of tho club owners to support
me. They have never given ma a cent to
buy a ball player with."
"Matters came to a head two months
ngo In St. Louis when Hoblltzol, who had
been first baseman for Cincinnati, was
sent to tho Red Sox by the waiver route.
I had no chance whatover to land him,
and. In fact, I did not even know ha was
out of the league until It was too late.
"I have been with tho club hero for 12
yoarn, nnd yot when I asked for my un
conditional release, President Bakor re
fused, saying I had no right to ask It."
"Just to show you how I waa hnmpcred,
nnd. In fact, prevented from getting men,
take the cases of Oldhnm. who Is with
Detroit, and Rltter, with New York. We
had both of thoso players out on option,
yet they would not nllow me to exercise
tho option and get the men whom I
needed very much.
"Then, too, only a matter of $2000 stood
In the way of our keeping both Tom
Senton and Mike Doolan. Theso are some
of tho things I have had to contend with,
Working with a new organization nearly
every year. too. hurts tho chances of a
manager to make good. A new man
comes In nnd he either doesn't know or
forgets what a fellow has done. What I
havo done in the past has certainly not
been appreciated by tho present owners.
'Well, I nm glad I'm free of nil the
worry of being manager anyway," re
marked Dooln ns he concluded, "I think
I would have been n wreck In another
year. Why, I have gained 11 pounds
since the close of the season. Now I'm
going to rest until I start on my vaude
"The Boston Braves have made me an
offer, but I cannot accept It because I
nm not a freo agent. Tho Philadelphia
club evidently wants to make some money
out of my sale, nnd I would have to go
to tho club they sent me to or quit base
ball.' "But I am not situated so that I have
to play unless I care to; therefore I
won't have to accept any proposition
that doesn't look good to me
"I have not made any definite plans
for the future, nnd I may not play base
ball ngoin. I havo been told by Presi
dent Baker that tho Cincinnati club
would like to have me, but they would
have to make a big offer.
"As far ni the Federal League Is con
cerned, I have never had a talk with
any of Its official, and they have
never made me an offer. They would
have to extend big Inducements to gain
Last year the Baseball Players Frater
nity was granted a number of requests
by tho National Commission. Ono of
these provided that a man who had eeen
10 years' service In tho majore should
havo his unconditional release, provided
that all of the clubs waived on him The
Philadelphia management, as far as can
be learned, has not nnd does not Intend
to nsk waivers on Dooln It It, believed
liv the ex-manager himself that It Is
the plan of the owners to sell him, hence
he cannot get his release from the club
In the way provided by the fraternity.
Only President Baker can give It to him.
At 0-30 o'clock this morning Dooln and
his wife left In a motorcar for a trip
out of town and will be gone a week.
Dooln would not tell his destination On
November 2 he will enter vaudeville
again, making his first appearance at
Wllllamsport with his old partner. Mc
Cocl. on the Keith circuit.
Dooln called attention to the fact that
thero are few men who have served longer
in tho National League than he. There
nn- only three players left In It who
were members when he broke In. these
being Tommy Leach. Christy Mathew
son and Hans Wagner.
U. OF P. GIVEN PAINTINGS

quia Ito, who was killed In Korea Ac
companying the paintings are some of the
Mairpils' letters to the scientist, beau
tifully written, but couched In quaint
phrase because of tha writer's limited
command of English.
Present day artists are deeply inter
ested In the paintings all but one cf
which are of Buddha or somo saint Tho
largest is a realistic picture of hell,
showing souls beim; weighed at the ga'.s
and then passing through 23 tortures
All the paintings are In flat colors and
with single lines that bring out great
detail. Considerable technical skill wai
required, according to critics, to produce
the extraordinary effects.
