Col- Una, of Memphis, Term., million- aires who are accused of gling thousands of dollars' worth of diamonds and laces into the United States in connection with Ijhe disclosures of Mrs. Helen Dwelle Jenkins. Allen is founder of the leather trust and Collins is prganzier of the Southern Coal company, both reputed to be millionaires. Allen is alleged to have posed as J. "W. Jenkins at the Chicago home of the woman and to have showered worth of dia- clothes upon her during TEat time. The exposure came when Mrs. Jen- kins reported to the police of New York that she had been robbed of that amount of jewelry while living at the fashionable Hotel Lorraine, on Fifth avenue. Mrs Jenkins denied with emphasis that it was through any feeling of pique or ill will toward either Collins or Allen that she had given her tes- timony Both men, she said, had be- friended her for years.

The case is expected to go to the jury late tonight. Judge Watson's charge was regai ded as tav- oriug the prisoner. Attorney Gregory opening for the prosecution, scathing- ly denounced Beattie.

WASHINGTON, D. c., Sept. Because ol the attitude Senator Bail- ey has held toward his democratic associates here for some time the an- nouncement of his retirement from the United States senate caused no surprise here in political circles His claims to leadership had been reject ed and he was practically standing alone. His term expires March 1913. Even before bis hastv resignation of last spring it became known here that Senator Bailey was dissatisfied with his work and did not care to re- main in the .public service. HP was irritated by the schisms ir< the dem- ocratic party and a marked division into regulars and progressives Al- though ifr.

He is having a 540.000 residence erected in this city. Some of those less friendly to Mr. Bailey declare he did not care to run risk of being defeated for re-elec- iion and announced his retirement for that reason. There was bitter oppo- sition to him in Texas four years ago ;crl he was compelled to make a des- perate fight for the retention of his It is fiinted that he might pre- .'er a voluntary relinquishment of-his place rather than have it wrested from him bis enemies. Representative Choice B. Randell Texas announced last spring that :e would be a candidate lor Senator Bsiley's seat aird has been actively for the position ever since. It is believed that the officers of the nine mterpational unions involved in the possible strike of the new svs- road have refused to suppoit a strike movement at this time The officers refused to give out any ing argument for statement bristled from the scriptures and at times was dramatic in the extreme.

NEWPORT, though it i Hur- park, FURTHER STATEMENT IS MOT FORTHCOMING Colonel at Home Here and Ex- pected to Go to Columbus Queries According to a statement of Judge E. B. Kinkead in Colum- bus, Tnursday, Rodney J. Diegle, convicted senate sergeant-at-arms, wilt be sentenced Saturday morn- irg. his last day of grace. Diegle is in Sandusky, having arrived here Wednesday afternoon, but has given out no further state ment. It is supposed that he wil! go to Columbus Friday. At noon, Thursday, Judge Kinkead form- ally notified Diegle's attorneys to have him appear in court Satur- day morning. The case of Diegle is becoming tha moie remarkable as the time ap- jtroaches for him to receive his sen- tence. The sensational charge that he was being kept in an intoxicated condition and supplied with funds by fi ieuds of members of the last general assembly, and lobbyists, was by attorneys for the state Wednesday. It is also charged that Diegle wonld have been in long ago and made a full confession of the crooked work of the last general assembly as far as he knew, but for these outside influ- ences being at work, and preventing: him doing what he would do were ha in his normal mind After a short conference between Attorney General Hogan and Prose- cuting Attorney Turner it was decided that under no would mercj be asked for Diegle, except tnat he put in writing what he is al- leged to have already told to friends, and explain certain mysterious trigs that were made by state senators and representatives when Diegle was close at hand. It has also developed that the story printed in a Cleveland paper was one told by Diesle when it it is alleged by his friends he was under the fluence of liquoi and not responsible for his statement. Xo written state- ment has been made, or at least has not been i eceived bv the state's at- torneys signed by Diegie. and the blanket denial held bj his attorneys, to anv and all statements whereby he connects the names of the legis- lators, is not as yet necessary to pro- dire Interesting, if not sensational de- velopments would not be surprising at any moment. Attorney General Hogan made the following statement: "Diegle will not be in prison garb a week until he will want to make a full confession. While he is at liber- u and with the associates that he has been with, during the past two weeks, we don't expect any statement Irom him."
