President Wilson Not a Bit Feazed
By Flurry in Wall
Developments Simply What
Foresaw When He Made
Famous Speech
Washington, June S. With the first
suggestion from the Department of
Justice as to the nature of its "trust
busting" program, Wall street makes
a show of fright and at once depresses
the market.
This is the burden of the news re
ceived in Washington following the
announce ment from Attorney-General
Mc Reynolds that he is dissatisfied with
the decree in the American Tobacco
Company dlssdution case and that he
means also to look into the effect of
the decree in the Standard Oil cioe.
And this is just exactly what the
President has anticipated all a'ong.
Such a situation was in his mind when
he made his famous Hainan's g tlows
spdech in New York before the inaug
uration and the same thing pas fore
seen by him when he wrote the Tillman
letter insisting that currency legislation
should be passed at once to meet any
emergency that might arise.
The truth is there was nothing par
ticularly radical about the program of
the Department of Justice.
Yet these are the things that have
apparently agitated the market and
so vastly disturbed Wall street. Coup
led to these announcement-., of course,
was the action of the President in hold
ing out that live stock and wheat should
go on the free list. This determination
on the part of Mr. Wilson is cited as
another cause of the depression in the
stock exchanges. .
In taking his stand the President
let it be known to the Senate Finance
Committee that he was opposed to
any backtracking in the matter of the
market basket. The committee wanted
to put wheat, flour and packing-house
products on the dutiable list to make
the Underwood bill consistent in this
mattci, hut the President thought can
sistenry could better be promoted by
taking the tariff off cattle and wheat.
The market Hurry has, in any event,
borne out the Administration's view
that emergency currency legislation
should be enacted before this session
of Congress adjourns. There mav be
no need for it after all, but the Pres
ident's idea is that the party should
play safe by being prepared, if a serious
financial situation should develop.
Washington does not seem partic
ularly alarmed over the' market de
pression in New York. Such a condi
tion seems to be taken as u mutter of
course in most quarters. There are
a few thoughtful party leaders, however,
who are more inclined than they have
heretofore been to agree with the White
House in its contention for financial
legislation here and now.
M. D. Wiley, a commission merchant
whose home is in Pamlico county and
who has been engaged in the commis
sion business, travelling over the East
ern part of North Carolina, was theci
under arrest yesterday at Columbia,
N. C, on a warrant charging him with
giving a bogus check for one hundred
and sixty evcn dollars to V. S. Han
cock of Beaufort.
Thinking that XVilcy was probably
in this city, Mr. Hancock telegraphed
td Sheriff R. B. Lane asking that he
be placed uuder arrest. Sheriff Lane
at once got busy and learned that Wiley
was not in this city but had gone to
Columbia and he. at once telegraphed
to the, authorities in that town to place
! him under arr0R, am, llolt) unti, ,hc

The Washington correspondent of
the Raleigh News and Observer sends
that paper , the following which is of
"Senator Simmons and Rcprascnta
tives Small, Faison and Goodwin of
North Carolina are deeply incensed
over the action of B. F. Keith, c ol
lector of the port at Wflmiiigfon, in
recommending deputy collectors of
the ports in North Carolina to the
treasury department without having
consulted the North Carolina delega
tion. "While it is c rtain that his recom
mendations will not be acted on un
less they arc satisfactory to the Dem
ocrats of the State, Keith's disre
gard for the wishes of the delegation
may mean his dismissal as .collector
before his term is out, in February, 1915.
"Keith recommended names of peo
ple at four ports of entry irf the State,
name! Elizabeth City, New Bern,
Beaufort and Wilmington. The fifth
port, Manteo, he recommended abol
ished. Secretary McAdoo has already
told Mr. Small that this port will not
be abolished.
"Keith's recommendation of Miss
Bruce Davis at Elizabeth City is sat
isfactory to the Democrats. The
others, however, are not satisfactory.
Keith has been a member of about
all the political parties there arc,
beginning with the Democratic, then
the Populists, the Republicans and
Bull Moose.
"If Congress carries out the .sug
gestions of Secretary McAdoo, made
today, the organization of the customs
service will not be made until Jan
uary 1, 1911."
Stockholders Ratify
Capital From IS
75 Millions.
Indicates That Corporation
No Fear Of Action To Us
Taken By McReynolds.
New York, June 6. A $60,000,000
melon will be cut by the Standard Oil
Company of New York next week
when its capital stock will be increased
from $15,000,000 to 175,000,000 The
stockholders have ratfied the proposal.
This action was considered remark
able, in view of the demoralized con
dition ot the stock market anil the
threat of the Government to reopen
the Standard Oil and Tobacco trust
cases. The cutting of a melon that
ranks larger than in many month
hows the corporation's utter lack
of fear for the future, and it confi
dunce that it will be able to make a
strong de'ense against any action
that Attorney-General McReynolds may
take against it.
Each stockholder of record wi
get a bonus of 400 per cent of his
holdinrs The directors will order the
disttibution of the new sto.-.k in tht
form of a dividend on June 13.
The heavy increase in rapitaliza
tjon is in line, with the action of other
StanJard Oil conccrm in other States
since the dis:o ution of the trust 18
month ago.
Up to date there have been seven
bg stock distributions and innumer
able smaller ones among the companies
that once composed Standard Oil.
Among the larger have been:
Standard Oil Company of Indiana

Rain Halts The Big Parade Soon
After It Had
B. Kelloe Is Again Elected
Secretary-Treasurer Of
State Association.
(Special to the Journal)
Wilmington, June 6 Evidently miff
ed because she could not smile at each
one of the several hundred good look
ing men in the Elks parade this morn
ing, the Goddess of Weather became
rial peeved. She then decided to in
terfere with what promised to be one
of the prttti st and most impressive
parades ever given in Wilmington.
Therefore after the procession had
traversed only six or eight blocks, the
fickle feminine conu oiling the weather
ordered rain.
Did the rain come? Well, for the
answei, please interview any one of
several hundred disappointed Elks who
had garbed themselves in their best
bib and tucker. They, as well as
hundreds of men, women and child
ren along the line of march will tell
you in most emphatic terms that it
rained and then "some," to the ex
tent that the parade had to be aban
doned, much to the disappointment of
every one.
The parade had moved from the
city hall, up Third street, down Red
Cross street to Front street, and along
Front to Princess street, when the
rain started. At first it appeared as
if only a temporary shower had come
and that the parade might be contin
ued. Within a few seconds however
perfect down-pour came, followed
with intermittent showers.
It was then realized that it would
ic clearly impossible to continue the
parade. The mounted marshals rode
rapidly up and down the line telling
the different organizations to dis
band and to seek shelter. The aban-
lonmentof the parade was a great
disappointment. However there was
nothing else to do under the unfavor
able weather conditions.
The parade was teviewed by the
committee of judges, as it passed the
Elks' Temple on Front Street. The
committee was composed ot Messrs.
Marsdcn Bellamy of Wilmington, Joe
Tavlor of Washington, and G. D
Daughtridge of Rocky Mount.
It was decided to award the New
Bern Lodge the State Association cup
for the greatest number in line, com
bined with best appearance. The
New Bern men, about fifty to sixty
strong, made a nifty appearance, clad
in bice coats, and white trousers and
with .white straw hats, and purple
hands. The cup which the lodge won
was offered by them last year. At
that time it was won by Wilmington
Lodge. A lodge must win the cup
three times before it becomes a per
manent possession.
Another cup offered by Wilmington
Lodge for best appearance went the
to the delegation trom Kalcigh; a
third cup, offered to the lodge show
ing the greatest amount of mileage,
was won by New B"rn.
Th" N w Bern men came over on
a special train, which was in charge
of Captain W. II. Newell, Jr., an ar
dent Elk. The enginerr and fireman
on the train are also members of the
The annual convention of the North
Carolina Association is now a thing
ol the past and many of the delegates
returned home tonight. Fololwing
the parade this morning the Elks
were serve I lunch at the Elks' Temple
and at 2:30 o'clock the last business
meeting of the convention was held.
At this meeting, the following officers
were elected: P. A. Gorrell of Winston
Salem, President; J. F. Farrcll of Ra
leigh, Vice-President, and T. B. Kehoe
of New Bern was re-elected Secretary
and Txcasurcr.
After considerable discussion, Wins
ton-Salem was decided on as the place
of the next meeting. Charlotte wanted
the next convention and wanted it
bad but the majority of the members
were in favor of Winston-Salem.
The convention came to a close!
tonight with a big ball at Lumina.
This was well attended and was one
of the most enjoyable features of the
entire convention.

Heard First Mate Died While
Serving In The Spanish
American War.
Likewise He Married Again
Cburt Is Asked To Un
do The Tangle.
New York, June 6. Mrs. Helen
May Denny Baldwins-Stuart, a hand
some young woman, who sought a
deer e annulling her marriage to George
W. Stuart, a wealthy retired commission
me. chant, told a remarkable story of
her matrimonial experiences to Supreme
Court Justice Hendrick. He reserved
decision after examining her at length.
Mrs. StuaTt said that fourteen years
ago, when she was known in Syracuse,
N. Y., her home town, as "Pretty Nc
lie Den y," she was married to Charles
D. Baldwin, 'an iron worker. After a
few months they moved to Watertown
and remained there until the spring of
1S98, whi-n Baldwin enlisted in the
Spanish-American War.
She did not hear from him after his
enlistment. She said Mrs. Hanfey,
Baldwin's sister with whom they had
resided before he went to the war
told her afterward that several of his
regimental comrads had broiight back
the news that Baldwin had di-d of
fever, one of them going so far as to
say he saw Baldwin dying.
Believing this ttory, she married
Stua.t at Sea Cliff, L. I., on Feb. 11,
1907. She had told him of her previous
Then a year ago she received a letter
from a woman who signed hciself Mis.
Charles D. Baldwin, saying she had
married Charles D. Baldwin in 1909.
Maurice Meyer, her counsel, ex
plained that an investigation had shown
that Baldwin had b?en stricken with
fever and was believed to be dying. He
recov?rcd, however, and was mustered
out. He then went to Denver, wnerc ncj
worked at his trade and finally took a
second wife without learning whether
his first wife was dead or alive.
Edward Weiss, an attorney, testified
that he had seived Baldwin with
subpoena calling on him to appear in
Mrs. StewartV suit, but had been in
formed that Baldwin feared to come to
court lest he be arrested for bigamy.
Mrs. Stuart had stated that she left
Stuart, her last husband, a year ago
and was questioned closely by the Court
as to the reason why.
Her answers did not satisfy Justice
Hendrick and she harply asked whether
she did not wish to get rid of Stuart.
She explained that he had refused to
support her and she had been compellccij
to o to work to earn a living
Justice Hendrick wanted to know the
whereabouts of Stuart and was told
that he had been last heard of in Lynn,
