What Champ Clark's Elevation Means
As a member of thi House, Champ

Sharp Williams, of Mississippi, became
Democratic leader, he made Clak his

fice under our government."
When Champ Clark isjsworn as Speak
er, next December, he will be the for
tieth Speaker of the national House.
He will come to the position at a time
when the political situation will give it
a significance it has seldom compassed.
The House Is in a crisis of its parlia-
mentary'development, For years there
has been growing misgiving ts to
whether the popular branch was mak
ing the full contribution to national af

The Senate has over-shadowed it in
power and prestige. - Under a succes

dictatorial authority, the House has be

ware firms of Cutler Blades and the
Basnight Hardware Company have been
piissing a number of articles from their
store, Although a diligent watch has
been kept on the stock the thieving
still continued and it was not until.last

sure that they had the guilty parties in
the persons of Henry Paul and Eronius
Moir who aro employe! by the two

Warrants were sworn out for the
Women and they wera placed under
arrest. Yesterday afternoon they were
given a hearing before Mayor McCarthy
and the evidence secured from them
showed that they had their thievery all
well planned and in fact were working
Moir, who was in the employ of the
Cutler-Blades Company while the thefts
were being committed, was placed on
the stand, He said that soveral months
ago Henry Paul had approached him and
asked him if he wanted to do a little
hauling for him. He told him that he
would and that Paul carried him to the
rear of Mr. Basnight's store and placed
on his wagon several rolls of roofing.
This, he said he was instructed to carry
to a boat which was moored near the
old Trent river warehouse and lo place
it on board. This he did and was paid
50 cents During the next few days he
said he was frequently hailed by Henry
Paul and engaged to carry loadu of
nails, roofing, htuves. etc., to various
places. Finally it peems that he got on
to the fact that the articles he was
stealing were being btolen and demand
ed that ha be given half of the money
from the proceeds of the sale. This,
however. Paul refused to do saying
that there was another man who had
to have a shac&.gnd that he would give
him one-third of it. The thievery he
said had been going on for a number of
When Paul was placed on the stand
he told an entirely different tale of the

Speecd to Pennsylvania Society
in New York Devoted to
New York, Jan. 23 --President , Taf t
Saturday night began in earnest his -
campaign for the fortification of the
Panama Canal His entire' speech at
the annual banquet of the Pennsylvania
Society in New York was devoted to
this subject. He has high hopes that
Congress at this session will declare in
hislsvor and appropriate $5,000,000 lo
begin the work.
In the Senate, the President has been
told, the sentinment in favor of forti
fication is almost two to one. The House
seems v pretty evenly divided, but not '
along partisan lines. Most of the mem
bers appear to have an open mind, how
ever, and are willing to be convinced
by the side that makes the better pre
sentation of its case.
President Taf t will bring all of his in
fluence to bear in favor of fortificat
ions. In his speech tonight he said that
there were absolutely no treaty obli-.
gations ia the way of fortifying the ;
canal: that the United States had every
right and reason to protect what was
purely an American waterway;
The President said he yielded to no
man in his love of peace and hatred ot
war. At the swne time,' Mr. Taft
rsutioned his bearers that universal
peace waa still a long way off and he
could not eonceive of any patriotic
American being willing to allow an at
tacking fore, free and equal use of a
waterway which was bunt by Ameri
cans largely as an instrument for the
defense of their country. (
There will be a basket party at For
