OF TO PAY 3J.L0UIS POST-DISPATCH XAS BREWERIES DEACONESS HI MADE WRONG DONG H I I DAMAGES Agreement to Pay $286,000 and to Lose Charters Made to Avoid Litigation. TESTIMONY READ IN COURT Includes Alleged Request Sent by Wire to Adolphus Busch for $50,000. n.rHUK SPRINGS, Tex., Jan. U5. Through a mistake, the Associated Press In its story yesterday of the t rewery hearing before Judge William J'ierson, of the KIshth Judicial District, erroneously said that, among other charges against the defendants, was an allegation that they collected by assessments and donations funds at the rate if $1,200,000 a year for the last five years In order to promote anti-Prohibition legislation and combat county and other local option elections. The allegation as contained in the ftate's petition was that the defendants were members of the United States Iirewers' Association, which Is alleged t". have collected assessments and donations at the rate of ,1,200,000 a year to promote anti-prohibition legislation. A scree to Terms. With the exception of one defendant the Dallas Brewing Co. all the defendants in the ouster ault of the State of Texas against seven brewery companies operating In the State, came Into KIghth District Court here yesterday with an agreement, entered into with counsel for the State, wherein thev were willing to pay certain penalties and costs for the alleged violation of the State's anti-trust law." The Dallas Brewing Co. announced it would fight the case, taking it to '.he highest tribunal, should that become necessary. Trial of this case was set for Feb. 21. In an agreement between the six brew eries and Attorney-General B. V. Loon- ey, entered in court, the defendants agreed to pay in a lump penalties ag gregating 76,000, about $10,000 expenses incurred by the Attorney -General's de- partment and all court costs; also to forfeit their charter and reorganize and accept an Injunction restraining them from future violation of the anti-trust law. The State reserved the right, however, to introduce all the evidence it had Kathered against the defendants; while defendants reserved the right to take exceptions and offer objections. Final decision rests with the court. Heading of Evidence BeKun. Heading of this evidence was begun before Judge Plerson late In the day. It consisted of letters and of testimony tken in 1U13 before a special commissioner. The defense's objections were based on the plea that the actions alleged took place before the quo-warranto law of J:ti7 was enacted, and were therefore not illegal. Alleged agreements to raise money to combat prohibition, sentiment and legislation were read into the record. Also, a telegram was introduced which was declared to have been sent by Otto Wahriiiund, president of the San Antonio Brewing Association to Adolphus Hu.-ch, the St. Louis brewer, telling him that the association needed 150,000 at once to promote the "cause" and asKing Mr. Busch's aid. Objection la Made. Counsel for the defense offered objections to practically all evidence presented on the grounds of Irrelevancy. Most objections were overruled, however, by Judge Fierson, who stated it was not merely a question of Justifying any decision he might make on the agreement, but that the general public was to be considered. Counsel for tho defense objected particularly to evidence regarding amounts which the State alleged was paid out by the respective breweries for righting the prohibition legislation. The State succeeded in reading Into the record, however, figures said to have been taken from the ledgers of the companies which indicated that in 1905, tho various breweries paid out sums ranging l.om $1300 to $16,000. The State contends that those sums were paid to the Texas Brewers' Association. Deny the CharKea. Counsel for the defense Issued a statement denying that In signing an agreement to settle the cases they had "pleaded guilty" to tha allegations of the plaintiffs petition. The statement aid that the defendants had not "pleaded guilty" to any of the charges HOW TO REDUCE YOUR WEIGHT A SIMPLE, SATE, RELIABLE vVAY Peopl who are over-burdened with uperf!uoui fat know only too wall the 3lcomfort and ridicule that over-stout PODl have to bear.

The statement adds, in part: "Because of the many Intricacies and technicalities of the anti-trust statutes, and the doubt and uncertainty as to the construction to be given many of them, and because of the enormous penalties, prescribed for the violation of those statutes, whether Cone willfully or innocently, which would amount to confiscation of the property of the defendants, should it be found that they had technically, even though unwillingly, violated those statutes, the defendants have been willing to pay a large amount to the Stafe, for the purpose of ending this litigation. "They- were willing to do this rather than undergo the expense of a long and tedious suit, and run the risk of an adverse finding that they had technically violated some of the provisions of the anti-trust statutes. They deny that they have been guilty of any intentional violation of the law." HCBO ONVEN TON HAS 12 DELEGATES, James Eads How Wires $9 to Get Two representatives Out of Jail.

LOUIS Missouri River City Gets $3.18 on $100 Instead of $1.25 as Printed in Post-Dispatch. Comparative tax rates of St. Louis and KansaSvCity, published in Sunday'3 Post-Dispatch, although compiled from official sources, have been found to be erroneous and to the disadvantage of St. Louis. The St. Louis tax rate is $2.35 on the $100 valuation. The Kansas City rate was reported to be $1.25. a difference of $1.10 in favor of Kansas City. It has been found that the official report of Kansas City gave only the rate for city purposes and that the rate for State, county and school purposes, included In the St. Louis rate, were omitted from the Kansas City rate. The total tax rate of Kansas City is $3.18, or 83 cents higher than the St. Louis rate. The Kansas City rate is divided as follows: City purposes, $1.25; county,- 55 cents; State. 18 cents, and school, $1.20. The St. Louis rate divi sion is city 1.57, school 60 cents and State 18 cents. There is no separate tax for county purposes in St. Louis, as St. Louis Is in no county, and the city rate includes Bi;y cost to the city of offices which correspond to county offices in other parts of the State. GLASS HOT WATER BEFORE BREAKFAST A SPLENDID MBIT Open sluices of system each morning and wash away the poisonous, stagnant matter.

Krondl of 2S17 Indiana ave- nue, wso naa recervea me iw fered.by the Pageant Drama Association for the best design of a flag, for St. Louis, was requested today by the Flag Competition Jury to submit a different color scheme than the blue, or ange and white he used in his prize- winning design. "The color was not what the jury wanted," Percival Chubb, chairman of the Flag Committee, said today to a Post-Dispatch reporter. "It was not agreeable. The blue was coo blue, and the orange was not orange enough." No suggestions as to colors were made by the jury, which was composed cf Mayor Kiel as chairman; Julius Haller President of the Board of Aldermen: W. K. Blxby, capitalise and chairman of the Art Museum board; J. Lawrence Mauran, architect, and Prof. Holmes Smith of Washington University. Kronol will be expected to submit the design, in various colors, and the jury hopes to pick one that will have harmony of color. Will Present It to City. Percival Chubb said that Krondil's design, when properly colored, would be offered to the city authorities as an appropriate city flag. He hopes the city then will adopt the design as an official flag. In that event, Chubb said, the flag would be placed on all public buildings.j and could be purchased by individuals. "It's a sure-enough flag," Mayor Kiel said, indicating that he would favor the adoption of Krondl's design as the official flag. As President Haller of the Board of Aldern en also was upon the committee, it was predicted the Aldermen would adopt the oesign. Krondl's design depicts the figure of Saint Louis astride his horse and holding his sword aloft in the manner of a crusader a symbol - familiar to all St. Louisans. The figure of St. Louis and the horse are in white, on a field of blue which covers a third of the flag in the shape of 9 pennant. Surmounting the figure of .-t. Louis are four fleur-de-lis com-ro'.-morating the Louisiana Purchase om France and signifying by number St. Louis as the fourth city. Two orange stripes, with a white stripe between, indicate the designer's idea .-f the advance of St. Louis to third nlace in the list of American cities. The designer explained that the blue in the flag represented- celestiality; white purity and cleanliness; and orangegold wealth and prosperity. Ontlook for Future. The utility of the symbolical features of the flag is obvious. If St. Louis should have the misfortune to drop into fifth rank among the cities another fleur-de-lis would have to be added. Or if St. Louis should advance to third city, it would be easy to rip one off. On the other hand, as the designer intends, the three stripes to indicate the city's advance toward third rank, the two orange stripes could be used to Indicate our advance, in time, to second place; and, finally, the white stripes to indicate our usurpation of first place among the cities. Krondl, the winning designer, is 27 years old and unmarried. He is a commercial artist. His design was one of more than 200 submitted by between eighty and ninety competitors. Honorable mention was awarded designs submitted by Margaret Hoensfeldt, Mrs. F. C. Woerman, William Carr Dyer, Eugene Johnson and Y. A. Dwyer.
