"The feellnK that the Kcpubllcs of this
hemisphere," said Societal j- I.anshiB,
"constitute a sroup .separate and apart
from the other nations of tho world,

the it republics and mnkca them the

The Secretary reiterated the declara
tion of President Wilson legardlnB senti
ments which will find I'clio In every
other American Itcpubllc that tho mlBht
of this country will never bo exercised
In n spirit of creed to wrest from a

"AL" YOUNG, M'NICHOL
MURDER "WITNESS," IS
IN CITY, POLICE SAY
Cousin of Keller Believed to
Have Been in Leather Fac
tory at Time of
INQUEST NEXT WEEK
"Al" Young Is hiding In this city, nc
cordlng to detectives who nre seeking
him ns the "star witness" In tho trunk
murder mystery. Young, a nephew of
Kdwurd Keller, who Is In Moynmcilslng
Prison nccuscd of the murder of Daniel
J. McXIchol, Is believed by the police
to have been in the factory of McXIchol
ot 12th nnd Hamilton streets with Keller
on March ISO, 1914, tho day McXIchol went
to meet Keller there nnd disappeared.
The police theory Is that McXIchol was
shot while in the fnctory ofllces nnd put
Into u trunk ; that this trunk wns taken
to Keller's home, at ISIS Weiudey street,
and from there to his laundry, at 0til
Frnnkford avenue, In the cellar of which,
now an unoccupied building, the trunk
containing the bodv was found burled.
The Inquest Into the death of McXIchol,
who was n second cousin of State Sen
ntor James P. McXIchol, will be held next
week, probably Tucsdas-. Ily that tlmo
the detectives) say their case against Kel
ler will be complete. Damaging testimony
not yet made public will bo iecnled nt
tho Inquest, according to the police.
C. P. Sterner, counsel for Keller, hns
nunounced that he will Institute habeas
corpus proceedings Immediately after the
Inquest. For this reason it i believed
that tho detectives will produce before
