Heading, Pa., Jan. 13.—There will
be no investigation for the present'
at least of the charges preferred by
Rev. I. N. W. Irvine against Bishop
Ethelbert Talbot of the Central
Pennsylvania diocese of the Protest-
ant Episcopal church. "Lack of
canonical authority," is the conclu-
sion of the eleven members who at-
tended today's meeting of the board
of inquiry. The full membership
consists of sixteen. "By many it is
said that other charges will be pre-
ferred against Talbot under the
canons now in force.

over the fact that her child, born
six weeks ago, was a girl instead of
a boy, Mrs. Sarah Libman committed
suicide by inhaling gas.
Mrs. Libman also caused the death
of her 3-year-old daughter, Frida.
Two other small children who had

Denver, Colo., Jan. ^3. The Na-
tional Live Stock association was
rent In twain today by the adoption
of a new constitution which admit-
ted the packers to membership and
provided an open door through
which the railroads of the country
might at any time become factors in
the control of the organization.
Cattlemen, horse and swine grow-
ers, together with representatives of
some of the affiliated industries, who
refused to agree to the new constitu-
tion, withdrew when they considered
its adoption probable, and this after-
noon formed a new organization,
under the name of the American
Stock Growers' Association, whose
aim it will be to wield a dominant
influence in the interest of tne cattle
growers. Roughly speaking, sheep
growers, commission men and stock
yards interests remained with the
National Live Stock Association, and
the actual growers of all other ani-
mals have "gone with the new :tsso-
Cattleman have from the first
stood opposed to the admission into

persons with whom the debts had
been contracted and I spoke of th«
matter to the chairman of the execu-

fool for assuming this responsibility.'

possibility of carrying Missouri with
sufficient funds that I would go any
length before I will stop the cam-
paign at this point.'
"About this tinje Senator Fair-
banks came to St. Louis and on re-
quest of Mr. Adolphus Busch, who is
a personal friend of the Senator, a
dinner was arranged at Busch's
house gt which were Former Senator
Mason, of Illinois, Congressman Bar-
thold, of St. Louis; W. S Dickey,
Otto Stifel, Senator Fairbanks, and

plained that I had been refused con-
tributions by prominent Republicans!
