INSURGENTS MAKE GAINS.
Republican Primaries Show Increased
Following of Discontented Leaders.
Des Moines, In., June 0. The vigor
of the national fight between insur

gent Senators Cummins and Dolllver.
With only live counties missing Gov
ernor Ii. F. Carroll, Republican, is
nominated for re-election by a major
ity of TOO votes over Warren C. Garst,
Progressive Republican. The missing
counties nre known as Carroll strong

jority up to 1,74)0 or li.OOO.
Two years ngo Carroll was nominat

Insurgents captured eight out of
eleven concessional nominations.

Yucatan Disturbances More
Than Indian Uprising.
LED BY EXILED OFFICERS.
New Aspect Given to Trouble In Mex
ico Deepens Border Interest Colo
nel Victor Montenegro One
of Rebels' Leaders.
El Paso, Tex., Juno 0. Information
received here forces out the startling
revelation that the trouble in Yucatan
is not merely an "Indian uprising," aa
described by Mexican officials, but an
organized revolution against the rule
This fact has caused Americans here
to accept with distrust much of the
previous Information sent out concern
ing massacres by savage bands.
Developments are being watched
with deepened Interest.
It is tho fact that Colonel Victoi
Montenegro is one of the rebel leaders
that has given the new aspect to the
revolt. He Is an army otllcer who was
banished from a choice berth In Mex
ico to Yacutan for exhibiting a prefer
ence for General Bernardo Reyes for
vice president against the wish ol
President Diaz, and It Is said that a
number of other olllcers banished with
him have taken up arms with the in
surgents. Maximlllnno R. Bonllin. another reb
el leader, has been American refugee
In Yucatan for many years, nnd there
is now a price set upon his head.
Further reports are received of the
sacking of towns throughout the In
terior of Yucatan. As yet only small
places have been attacked, and tho
rebels have contented themselves with
killing officials and taking what arms,
ammunition and money they could
find unless they were resisted. They
have also waged war against planta-,-,
ownepi known to have been un
usually loynl to Diaz.
A Mexican gunboat with two Jiattal
lons of Infantry has reached Progresso,
the principal seaport of Yucatan, from
Vera Cruz. The troops have been dis
patched Inland. The troops have been
on duty In the state of Vera Cruz,
which is itself something of n tropical
region, and t he Mexican government
has confidence that they will be able
to deal with twice their number of
Insurgents. They were taken inland
through Morida, the capital, where
they were loudly cheered, shgwing that
the people of the capital nre loyal.
They cannot reach the section of dis
satisfaction without a hard march,
and this may be delayed from the fact
that Colonel Victor Montenegro, leader
of tlie rebels, has seized the army
transportation nnd also torn up the

When St. Louis was least expecting

TRIAL M CLOSE
Sugar Frauds Case Reaches
Jury This Afternoon.
WEARING CLOSING ADDRESSES
Interested Crowd Gathers at Final Day
of Celebrated Trial Last Words
Being Said For and Against
the Three Defendants.
New Y'ork, June 9. Before the Unlt
sd States circuit court adjourns this
evening the sugar frauds case will bo
In the hands of tho Jury.
Some time tonight or tomorrow
tlie three defendants will know their
These are Charles R. Heike, aged
former secretary of tlie sugar trust;
Ernest W. Gerbracht, former superin
tendent of tho Brooklyn refluory, and
Inmes F. Bendornagel, former superin
tendent of the refinery.
In the beginning there were six de
fendants, but three of the accused men
In the middle of the trial decided to
plead guilty, following the testimony
of Oscar Spitzer, former dock superin
tendent, who was pardoned from At
lanta prison and made a full confes
sion of the sugar weighing frauds.
The closing scenes at the trial at
tracted an Interested crowd in which
prominent sugar men were conspicuous.
When counsel for the government and
for the defendants In tlie sugar trlnl
began their summing up addresses In
tlie United States circuit court there
were five to talk. Wlnfred T. Denl
son opened for the government and
Henry L. Stlmson will close. Henry
F. Cochrane summed up for Bender
nagel and Clarence W. Lexow for Ger
bracht. Johu B. Stanchfleld summed
up for Heike this morning.
"We do not claim," suld Mr. Denlson,
"that these defendants knew of the
frauds ou the specific cargoes men
tioned in tho Indictment. It is not nec
essary' to prove that, but It is incon
ceivable that the defendants hero
should not have known of the frauds
In general, as the very atmosphere of
fraud permeated the whole trust. Ben
dornagel was located at the distribut
ing point. Figures went from him to
Wall street. We do not claim lie was
tlie originator or operator, but it Is as
plain as day that he must have known
the government was being defrauded.
it is a pitiable situation for liim to
lie lu. lie Is a man of honorable dis
position, and he must have suffered
cruelly during all those years to find
himself the center of a system so dis
honest. Tliis Is a consideration, how
ever, only for the court when it comes
time to impose sentence."
Mr. Denisou denounced Gerbracht,
the ?20,000 a year superintendent, so
fiercely that his lawyers objected. He
derided Gerbracht's defense of being
merely an instrument of "Old Man"
Havenieyer and maintained that Ger
bracht sanctioned the thefts and re
warded Its perpetrators.
Of Heike, Mr. Denisou argued that
to assume Hnvemeyer's "Man Friday"
did not know of the weights was be
yond all human possibility. As chief
of the bookkeeping department, a man
whose hobby for twenty-nine years
was In weight statistics, Mr. Denisou
assorted that Heike was the one man
in tlie sugar trust offices at 117 Wall
street who knew of the discrepancies.
"It wns Heike," he declared, "who
conceived and conducted the remarka
ble bookkeeping system which has
made It so difficult to place blame on
Mr. Cochrane for Bendernagel said
there was no evidence to show that hla
client had had any physical participa
tion In the frauds or was even ac
quainted with those who had.
Mr. Lexow for Gerbracht said that
frauds on the docks are conceded, but
not to tho extent alleged by tho gov
ernment. He followed this up by nn
attack on the tabulations of Harry
Waters, tho customs liquidator.
"Tho whole dock," he said, "wus
tainted with tho pestilential taint of
Oliver Spltzel." When tho sugar trust
paid more than ?2,000,000 to the gov
ernment it paid out money not only for
tho short weights, but also paid tho
penalty for having such a man as
Spitzer lu Its employ.

HASTE CAUSE OF DISASTER.
Workmen Crowded Into Narrow 8pae

Save Themselves by Clutching
Shaft Timbers as They Fall.
Dover, N. J., June 0. Five men wero
killed, one inortnlly hurt nnd four oth
ers had narrow escapes from death in
the seven hundred foot fall of a shaft
lift lu tlie Richard mine.
Tho accident was due to tho eager
ness of the ten men involved to leave
the mine. They Jammed themsolvea
In and on top of nn ore lifting car only
large enough to hold four Inside. In
piling on tlie car they disobeyed tho
rules of the mine.
The ore lifter ascended the shaft
slowly and with many hitches. Final
ly, 700 feet from the bottom of tho
mine, the car suddenly turned turtle
and spilled its human burden down
Into the black well.
Those who were clinging to the ropes
and practically standing on the heads
of those inside the car jumped as tho
lift tilted over and grasped at the tim
bers that walled the sides of the shaft.
Some of the four men who were saved
fell sixty feet before they could se
cure a firm hold on the timbers. Tho
five men who wero killed had been
pitched headlong down tho shaft and
had no opportunity to grasp at any
thing but air.
Five of the six that reached the bot
tom of the shaft were mangled past
recognition. The sixth man fell upon
the others, nnd though his legs wero
broken lie was alive when found. He
had snatched nt the timber of tha
shaft, ripping out tho tlesli of his
hands nnd arms, but somewhat break

Coroner Edward F. Totten, after in
vestigating the uccldcnt, exonerated"
the company from blame. The coronet
declared the men were entirely at
fault, ns they had wilfully violated tha

Broward Will Be the New Senator
Washington, June 9. Telegrams re
ceived In Washington by members oi
