that of a girl who called at his office
last summer. He told the grand jury
that a man railed at his office and
said he was there on behalf of a man
he described as his friend. He asked
Dr. Williams If he would perform an
operation on a girl and the doetor
emphatically said no, but If he would
send the girl to his office in company
with a respectable woman he would
make an examination. The next day
the girl of the photograph culled and
told her story, and requeste'd him to
perform an operation, which he
promptly refused. The doctor was
called Into an adjoining room, and
when he returned the girl was gone.
Dr. Williams was directed Wednesday
to a pool room In Hendersonville
where "Boney" Bradley was. He en
deavored to engage Bradley In con

not positive, hut thinks Bradley is the
man who called at his office. The
man now wears a beard, and Dr. WiH

whether he is the man if this were
removed, he says.
A Stubborn Cum. '
Since the, discovery of the decom
poned body, later Identified by her
brother as flint of Myrtle Hawkins, in
Osceola lake on Sunday, September 10,
an enormous amount of effort has
been expended In searching out evi
dence that would eonrieet these per
sons with the girl's death. To llnd
objects for the linger of suspicion
proved an easy task; the discovery of
tangible evidence was another matter.

skilled detective was culled Into the

nothing conclusive. Inciil jind visit

President's Manager's Refusal
to Accept Primary Test Aids HE DEFIES PRESIDENT
TO VETO TARIFF BILLS
Washington, March 9.
The progressive pressure for popu
lar primary tests of public opinion
and the Taft manager's Insistent re
fusal to accept any such guage of
sentiment, has already rushed the
Tuft campaign to the point of a col
While Chairman Dixon of the pu-
tional Koosevelt committee Is fore
Ing his demand upon the Taft organ
Izatlon, and while the Tale people are
sparring for wind and ' time, the
Koosevelt tide Is rising so high that
machines, committees, office holding
organizations, state and local bosses,
are loosing their moorings.
In a statement yesterday Chairman
Dixon called attention to this situa
tion and accused the Taft organiza
tion of a rule or. ruin policy that pro.
poses to run the party or wreck It.
Happy Over (Jrccnsboro Message.
Senator Dixon was more than happy
when he received a telegram frotn
Greensboro saying 80 per cent of thi
district leaders In North Carolina were
lor Colonel Koosevelt.
The crisis In this situation has been
precipitated by the Taft organization's
repudiation of the remarkable pri
mary held in Kansas City. - The regu
lar organization planned the primary
amV the Taft people made no protest
against It until It was over, and House
velt had polled 15 votes to Tuft's one.
Then the Taft bureau announced that
It would not accept the result; would
irgard the primary as illegal and un
authorized, and would send a contest
ing delegation to Chicago. To thlr
Senator Dixon retorted with his rule
or ruin bulletin.
.."The attitude of .the .T'lXt manngiers
inward the presidential preference
primaries has not been more boldly
end unblushiugly indicated than in
(omieelion with the primaries held
Thursday In the Fifth Missouri dis
tiict" (Kansas City), said Dixon. "The
regular republican organization pro
iiled for the primary in a perfectly
regular way. Over .linen votes were
last on presidential preference iiml
Mr. Koosevelt received a trifle more
than 13 to Mr. Tuft's I. Immediately
I he Taft managers announced that the
primary was Illegal and would be eon
tested at the national convention
They will hold a rump convention and

"This can only he construed as deli
nite announcement of a purpose to
contest wherever Taft delegates are
defeated and' ; Roosevelt delegates
chosen. There will be Just us much
justlllcation for contesting the House
.tit delegation, who are certain to he
chosen in every state that has a presi
dential preference primary law
there Is for a contest In the Fifth dis
trlct of Missouri.
"This sort of procedure makes per
feetly plain the rule or ruin policy of
the administration managers. They
seem obsessed with the idea that be
tween the federal officeholders and
the expected acquiescence of the Ha
tional committee, they can select and
seat their own sort of

( hump Clark was a guest In the capi
tul of -his native state today. He re
counted to the Kentucky legislature
the record mude by the democratic
party in congress. ;
"We have absolutely kept faith
with the people," he declared. "W
huve redeemed or are redeeming ev
ery promise mude to win the elections."
Declaring the tariff and the ques-
tion of trust control will overshadow
other Issues of the coming presidential
campaign. Clark said:
resident rati, .1 is said, proposes
to veto any tariff bills we pass. We
welcome the Issue. We do not believe
it can lie blinked at, postponed, min
Imized or shunted out of the way.
The present tariff laws raise $330,-
1X10,1100 annually and it is estimated
that every time one dollar goes Into
I'ncle Sam's coffers under the high
protective tariff system, about S3 goes
into the pockets of the tariff barons,
This boing true, then a high protec
live tariff costS; thtji people of this
country a billion dollars and a half
yearly. It is a gross outrage and
cruelty upon the taxpayers."
Clark said that on the strength of
this condition ha hoped for Indepen
dent support of the democratic candi
date this year. Clark declared the
republicans undoubtedly would at
tempt ti cloud inuifjidliitt Issues and
lure us-away Trnjh the tariff, and

that on these issues we will defeat
them most' decisively." y.

sisted by the solicitor and by Stuton navmg any Knowieuge m or com
Kector for the private prosecution,
Judge Ewart representing the McCalls
and W. A. Bmlth the ftradlCys. It was
act forth that llrst degree murder
could not be charged; that the defen
dants had been under suspicion for a
long while as a result of the inquest
and hud not left the community ami
it was absurd to think they would do
so. The nature of the case considered,
It was argued that Incarceration would
be an unwarrantable hardship. The.
motion was refused as to each of the
defendant, and all were remanded to
jail to await trlul at the May term
" of Superior court. The prosecution
stated to the court that for obvious
reasons the defendunts had been con
fined seuuratelv. and that It was
deemed necessary that such separate
confinement bo continued. Owing to
the crowded condition of the Hender
son jail It, would be necessary to semi
two of them to the Buncombe jail.
This was ordered, and It was left to
the defendants to agree who would be
sent to Asheville. It Is understood
the Kradleys will be sent, probably
reaching Asheville on the Carollnu
tqicclal at 7:20 this evening.
The defendants appeared hi court
looking' haggard, but perfectly com
posed. The arguments as to ball con
sumed nearly two hours. It Is believed
that none of them would have any
ilUTIculty in making bond.

Toledo. O., March !. President
raft spoke here last night upon the
recall of Judges and the recall of judi
cial decisions. His remarks could be-
interpreted as a reply to the recent
.speech of Colonel Theodore Koosevelt
at Columbus, at which the colonel ad
vocated those policies, although the
president did not refer to Colonel
Koosevelt or his speech, by word or
I'ttetiy without merit or utility, and
reactionary instead of progressive;
crude, revolutionary, titl'ul und un
stable were the terms In which the
president referred to the recall meth
od of reversing judicial constructions
of the constitution. .
"I have examined this proposed
method of reversing judicial decisions
on constitutional questions with care,"
President Taft said. "1 do not hesi
tate to say that It lays the axe at the
foot of the tree of well ordered free
dom and subjects the guaranties of
life, liberty and property without rem
edy to the fitful impulse of a tempo
rary majority of an electorate."
The president began with a refer
ence to. the development of represen
tative government In the 1'nlted
States. The best government, he said.
iml that which was most certain
provide for anil protect the rights of
every class, was that government in
whieh e.verv elasj had a voice.

from Daniel Webster s speeches on
