1 SUNDAY MORNING, ' JANUARY 6, 1907 the prrrsBUHG press THIRTY-ONE 1ADINE NOW EMPLOYED AS A DETECTIVE Co-Respondent in Hartje Di-vorce Sait Deaies Drinking Champagne and Spending, Mon;y Freely GOEHRING WON'T TRY THE CONSPIRACY CASES. Thomas Madine, fi-coachman and ro-respondent in the Hartje divorce case, is now a private detective, work-Ins for the Perkins Union Detective Agency. Madine brands as false the statements that he has been spending money on champagne suppers during the past two months. He furthermore pays that Attorney J. Scott Ferguson has no grounds for his statements to that effect in Common Pleas Court No. r2 "n Friday, during the arguments on the bills of expanses and granting- of Eiirnony filed by Mrs. Mary Scott Hartje. It is likely that Attorney John S. Robb, Jr., who retired yesterday from the posi-t on of first assistant to District Attorney Robert E. Stewart, will be named as counsel for the Commonwealth in the remaining cases in criminal court growing out of the Hartje divorce case. The conspiracy case against Augustus Hartje, John L. Welshons and Clifford Hooe and the case against Detectives II. (i. Staab and John Anderson yet remain . to be tried. RELATIVE OF HARTJE'S. District Attorney-elect H. L.' Goehring. who takes charge tomorrow, cannot try tiie Hartje cases, because he is related to Augustus Hartje. and as Mr. Robb has represented the Commonwealth in ail these cases that have been tried, he is looked upon as the man who will sit on that side of the table. Detective Gilbert B. Perkins, director, of the Perkins Agency, said that the only money Madine has spent since last August has been his salary from the agency, which he has earned by shadowing work. Madine's emphatic refutation of Attorney Ferguson's charges cam prompt jand with characteristic Irish forceful-ness. The ex-coachman says that any (man who accuses him of paying for sundry cnampagne suppers tells an untruth. The atorney's statements in court that he had information that iMadine has been doing just this thing and desiring the taking of testimony so that it might be shown where he Is getting money for this high style of life has aroused Madine's Celtic ire, end the amateur private detective is boiling over with indignation. ATTORNEYS HAVE EVIDENCE. Attorney Ferguson, on the other hand, claims that he has evidence that will prove, by the testimony of reputable witnesses, that not only is Madine spending sums of money in buying champagne, trut also that bribery and coercion figured largely in the testimony of witnesses for the defence during the celebrated trial in which Augustus Hartje asked a divorce from his wife. All Mr. Ferguson asks is an opportunity to prove the truthfulness of this evidence, and he is going to try and find this opportunity by having the defence bring in an itemized bill of ' t-,.ia'r, fhat bat developed since i khe closin 3Wr Ftrff g of the Hartje case, saia rruson vesteraay. gives us S-eason to believe that Madine is being Lnr.r.liri with nlentv of money but I Kvtli not say from what source. We tlso have evidence that one of the fe-imale witnesses for the defense went to a local attorney who had entered suit Bgainst her for an account of $SoO and told him she would have the money in a few days, pleading with him to restrain action until then. After she gave !her testimony this woman went to that attorney and yaid him the sum she kiwed. There have been many things tome to light since the trial that the people who revealed them knew at the Itime, but were afraid to tell.

Hartje appeared n Criminal Court yesterday and became uretv in the sum of $3.ohi for the appearance of W. B. De Costa, who was jronvicted this week on the charge of fperjurv, in connection with the case In gainst' Clifford B. Hooe, in which he wns a witness for the defendant. Attorney W J. Brennen, who was on De !Costa's bond previous to the trial, su--rendered him to the court immediately 'after hi conviction and De Costa since ithat time had been in the county jail. MORTON'S CONDITION REMAINS UNCHANGED. Cleveland Offlcers Try to Fathom Mytry of Annlt. The condition of W. S. Morton, the young Cleveland broker, who is at trie Homeopathic Hospital suffering with Fevere wounds on the head, the result (of the assault made upon tim at a down-jtoTvn hotel on Sunday morning last, re-' mains unchanged. The police are at sea in the matter of unwinding the tangle which the episode has produced. Morton either cannot or will not talk for the benefit of the police, and thus the tangle is more pronounced. It is said that several private detectives under the direction of Detective Jacob Mintz. of Cleveland, are in the city and are trying to solve the mystery. Nevertheless the local detectives, under Captain James W. Eagan, are endeavoring earnestly to end the case. The local men are cf the opinion that to find out where and with whom Morton spent the hours of Saturday night, is to find out why and by whom the assault was committed. The police are positive that Morton was not in Allegheny on the Saturday night previous to the affair and are likewise positive tfcat he entered the Colonial hotel at or near 2 o'clock Sunday morning. Detectives are still continuing their watch at the hospital and will learn anything that Morton has to divulge the moment he' is allowed or Is willing to talk. lftnre on Fossil Hnntlng. ' The biological section of the Academy of Science and Art will meet Tuesday night in Carnegie Hall. O. A.

The primary . election on January 26, in a number of the wards of Pittsburg and Allegheny, will be decidedly interesting. This was made manifest yesterday afternoon at the office of the cotinty commissioners when candidates finished the fling of petitions to have their names printed on the ballots, as provided by the new uniform primaries law. An examination of the petitions shows that the Democratic organization in Allegheny as a distinct party organization has either grown very indifferent or is being assimilated by the Republicans. In a number of wards of Allegheny the Democrats have nominated no candidates and in several others it is evident that Republican candidates are receiving the support of Democrats, as they are the only candidates petitioning for a place in the Democratic column on the primary election ballot. There is a big field of candidates for the Republican nomination for alderman in the Thirteenth ward. Pittsburg, promising a ward contest. An interesting struggle is also to take place in the Fourth ward, Pittsburg. John J. Sweeney, Democrat, filed a petition for both the Democratic and Republican columns as a candidate for the nomination for alderman, and about neon his cousin. Charles J. Sweeney, filed petitions to have his name appear in both columns as a candidate for the same office. Charles J-Sweeney is known as a Republican. A LUCGHEXY COUNCILS.

Three women, as announced in The Press several days ago, are candidates for school directors in Allegheny. CHANCES FOR TROUBLE. The petitions indicate that the Citizens, Lincoln, Civic and Good Government parties are not enjoying good health, as they appear to have placed no candidates in the field. Some of the Republican con-didates, however, are asking that their names be placed in the columns of these parties. If any of these parties come in later with nomination papers they will likely meet trouble. The law says a party muft act under the new primary law if it polled 2 per cent of the highest total vote for any candidate in an election division, either at the last preceding general election or at the last preceding February election. Nearly all the parties mentioned polled the required 2 per cent in many districts last February, although they were amalgamated under the Lincoln party title last fall. There would have been another chance for trouble if the Civic party, for example, had come in under the new primary law. The act Fays that a voter, if challenged, must make affidavit that he voted for a majority of the candidates of the party in whose primaries he proposes to par ticipate, at the last general election. The Civic and Good Government parties had no ticket last November. SAYS JAPAN IS FRIENDLY Prefessor in the Government School Is ' Inspecting tha Local Mills Hosaku Owaoka, professor of the mechanical department of the government technical school in Tokyo, is stopping at the Seventh Avenue Hotel. ' Mr. Owaoka was sent here at the expense of the government to study American methods of manufacturing. He left Japan over two years ago, and since that time has had a varied experience. He landed in San Francisco and after spending a few days there traveled to St. Louis and spent two months at the exposition, studying the exhibits, and especially machinery hall. From there the Japanese professor journeyed to Cincinnati and worked for one year as an apprentice in a large factory and studied the machinery continually while employed in the factory. Later he visited Hamilton, O.. Chicago, Cleveland and other cities, visiting the mills everywhere he went. Mr. Owaoka said that he came to Pittsburg Just to look over the mills, as he had heard it was a great manufacturing town. He said that Japan bought large quantities of goods from this city. In a few months he will leave for Europe where he will spend some time in the study of manufacturing methods in use in the countries across the water. Mr. Owaoka stated he did .not believe Japan would very materially increase its navy, as it no longer had any enemies. He seemed greatly impressed with what he had seen in this country, and stated that Japan had no manufacturing estab lishments or methods to compare with those of this country. He explained that the Japanese government was having the Russian vessels that were captured re paired and would make use of them. NEW OFFICERS INSTALLED.

' MAYOR IS NOT READY TO GIVE HIS APPROVAL Chary Aboat Discussing Clark's Proposed Amphitheater Contests Over Estimates far 1907 Appropriations BOND MONEY TO RUN FILTRATION PLANT. "I do not care to discuss the amphitheater now. I do not know yet that it Is practicable." The foregoing reply was made yesterday afternoon by Mayor George W. Guthrie to a question as to how he regarded the plan3 of Director James W. Clark for an amphitheater In the ravine at the entrance to Schenley Park. The mayor talked in a general way to produce the impression that he is desirous of knowing how much money will have to be provided for other improvements during 1907 before committing himself to the amphitheater project. "There are a number of improvements that I want to see made before my administration comes to a close, but, more than anything else, I want to see a civil service system established covering1 - all the city employes," was another statement made by the mayor. He then referred to the civil service bill drafted by A. Leo Weil, which is to be introduced in the legislature and which has the mayor's approval. AS TO ESTIMATES. Some interesting facts regardiing the preparation of the egtimates for the 1907 appropriations are coming out. Yesterday it was learned that in all probability appropriation will be made for the maintenance of the filtration plant, which is scheduled to go into service nest September. Controller John B. Larkin claims that $300,000 will be saved out of the proceeds of the bonds for the construction of the plant, and from this can be taken any sum of money needed to operate the plant during the closing months of 1907. He says this would be legal under the wording of the bond ordinance. This appeals strongly to the controller, as he is working hard to bring the tax levy for next year down to 12 mills or- less. Superintendent Morris Knowles, of the bureau of filtration, drafted an estimate of $100,000 for the maintenance of the filtration plant for the latter part of next year, and it Is said that this Item was one of the first on which the controller's ax fell when he got into conference with the mayor. Some of the city officials do not expect to see the plant in operation before October or November. Another story which has come to light is that there has been a spirited controversy between the controller and Director Frank Ridgway. of the department of public safety, with the mayor as the listener, over the appropriation to pay the salaries of the firemen. The controller, it is understood, claimed that the estimate provided was based on every fireman being paid at least $90 a month. He objected because the firemen receive $S0 their first year, $S3 the second and J90 the third year and thereafter. PARK TRACTION LINE. Mayor Guthrie said yesterday that he is still opposed to a traction line in Schenley Park, proposed by Common Councilman Hugh Ferguson. He said that a survey is probably being made by the public works "department and this ia proper, as it was requested by councils. "There would be many months in which a traction line in park would be of no use," said the mayor, "but we would have to maintain the equipment. We would also have to operate a large number of cars when there are crowds at the park and we would have a surplus of cars on ordinary occasions. "People would also object to paying two car fares from their homes to some point within the park. They can easily reach the shady spots by means of the main entrance, the Murdock entrance and the entrance from Wilmot street, where the bridge over Junction hollow is completed. "It seems that the people in this city do not take to the parks as in other cities and I am sorry for this. They seem to prefer to attend some big athletic events, such as a baseball game. In Paris the people walk much farther into the parks than we do here and enjoy picnics under the shady trees." The mayor, during his talk, said that council ought to take up and pass the ordinance providing for smoke inspectors, in order that the anti-smoke ordinance may be enforced. IDENTIFIES FATHER. Victim of Street Car Was a. Resident of KnoTvlIle. At the morgue yesterday afternoon a pathetic scene occurred when the remains of the unknown man, who was killed by a Beltzhoover car at Liberty avenue and Tenth street, Wednesday night, were identified as that of David Edgar, aged 57 years, of No. 412 Dewey street, Knox-ville. The identification was made by a son, Hugh Edgar. Edgar was a laborer and had been miss ing from home since W ednesday, the day of the accident. The body was taken to the home. On Wednesday night Edgar stepped in front of the car and was struck with considerable force and a fractured skull resulted. He was hurried to the Home-pathic Hospital, but never regained con sciousness and his death resulted Friday afternoon. VETERANS TO MEET. Two G. A. It.

Attorney General Bonaparte has mapped out a plan of legal action as to the exclusion of Japanese children from-the public schools of San Francisco, and has acquainted the President with his purposes. The President was further informed today as to the plan by District Attorney Devlin, of San Francisco, who has been here nearly a week in conference with Mr. Bonaparte. Mr. Devlin talked some time with the President. It is understood to be probable that the action will be one in the federal courts against the school board of San Francisco, to compel that body to accept children of the Japanese race In their public schools along with other children, on the ground that the failure to do so is a violation of the treaties between the two countries guaranteeing no discrimination against Japanese.

The board of army engineers that made an examination of the Ohio river today submitted its report to the river and harbor board of the war department. The engineers have spent about a year and a half in their work and their report is said to be the most important report that has ever been made on the improvement of tha Ohio. It will be taken up by the river and harbor board next week. Meanwhile it will not be made public. It is known, however, that it treats exhaustively of the Ohio improvement project and that it contains recommendations for the canalization of that stream from Pittsburg to Cairo. As estimated by the house committee on rivers and harbors that work was to cost $60,000,000. It is said that the engineers will show in their report that it cannot be done for less than $75,000,000. The scheme of improvement the board will outline provides for. the construction of at least 52 locks and dams. The greater number of these locks and dams, the board estimates, will cost about $1,-200,000 while those on the lower river it thinks cannot be constructed for less than $2,000,000 each. All of the members of the board have been represented by Chairman Burton to appear before the house committee on rivers and harbors and .make statements relative to the appropriations that will be required for the Ohio improvement project. Colonel Lockwood is chairman of the board and Captain W. S. Seibert is a member of it. The house committee will take up the project next week.
