particularly bitter fight in the ranks of
the Democratic party between the regu-
lars, headed by Thomas ST. Martin and
Claud A. Swanson, and the insurgents,
led by Representative William A. Jones
and Representative Carter Glass.
Martin atul Jones, as rival candidates
for the six-year term in the United States

night for a vigorous struggle. Both sides
are claiming victory. The outcome ran

Paris Believes Agreement With Ger-
many as to Morocco Is More •
PA It 18, Sept. 6.—Tension over the Mo-
roccan situation regarding which negotia-
tions are now going on between France
and Germany has been relieved somewhat
by impressions derived both from Berlin
and from official quarters in Paris, that
an agreement is more likely since the
French proposals have been read by ttie
Emperor and the Imperial Chancellor.
The anxiety, however, has by no means
disappeared, but a certain confidence has
been inspired by the published statement
of sober-minded journals, such as the
Temps, that the probabilities of an ac-
cord being reached have sensibly increased.
The Foreign Office maintains a complete
silence regarding the progress of the ne-
French Ambassador and German For-
eign Minister Get Together in
BERLIN, Sept. M. Cambon, tho
French ambassador, and Herr Von Kin-
nerlln-Welchter conferred this evening
for forty-five minutes, during which the
German reply to the French proposal was
delivered. According to the Cologne Oa-
Ectte's semiofficial dispatch, the German
counter proposal demands a full guaran-
tee on important economic interests In
Morocco, conceanlng which technical ad-
vice must be taken before tho conclusion
of the agreement.
This will require time and care. Much
preparatory work, however, has already
been accomplished In the details of the
guarantee and territorial compensation,
: so that with good will on both sides an
I early result may be looked for.

SON-IN-LAW TELLS OF DISAP-
PEARANCE AND FINDING OF
' BRENHAM MAN.
S: «'ChiI T.'lfjrrwm to Express.
BRENHAM, Tex., Sept. 6.—The story of
the disappearance ten years ago and find-
ing a few days ago of Adolph Kessling, as
told by Charles Free, Mr. Kessllng's son-
in-law, reads like a romance. Said Mr.
"Adolph Kessling, my father-in-law, is
alive. He is living at Calexico, Cal.. and
during the last year has been running a
small meat market in his own name. 1
spent three days with him recently and,
as soon as he has been able to settle up
his small business matters there, he' will
return to this city. The suits that have
been pending for the insurance on Ins
life have all been dismissed. Mr. Kessling
was located through the persistent efforts
and at the personal expense of his wife,
niy mother-in-law, Mrs. Pauline Kessling,
and with the aid of h«r attorneys.
ALWAYS BELIEVED HIM ALIVE.
"Representatives of the various insur-
ance companies have tried from time lo
time to settle with Mrs. Kessling, but
this she refused to do absolutely, as she
desired to run down every possible clue
to Mr. Kessllng's whereabouts. Mr. Kess-
ling has been around Calexico for about
fohr and a half years. During the greater
part of this time he worked for the Im-
perial Packing Company.
"When Mr. Kessling left St. Louis be
went to Mexico to see about some mining
property, but he did not intend then not
to return to Brenham.
"He then went out through various
Western mining camps prospecting, but
never had any luck. After suffering many
misfortunes, he drifted into California.
He lost over $3000 on the shipment of
cattle that he brought to St. Louis and
felt that he would not be able to make
good with his creditors. He was dis-
covered through a postcard which his
daughter had given hirn_jvhen he went
away and which had been carried in iiis
grip* ever since. It was taken from his
grip by George D. Dameron, at whose
house he remained a few days at Warner
Springs, Cal. He left there and did not
return for a long time. Mr. Dameron
went through his grip, found the post-
card which had been directed to his
daughter. This he mailed, and we re-
ceived it a short time ago. We recog-
nized the handwriting immediately. I
left at once for there and found Mr.
Kessling. He is broken in health and
has aged a great deal. He will return to
Brenham to make bis future home as
soon as he has arranged his affairs
CALEXICO, Cal., Sept. 6.-Adolph Kess-
ling has been in the Imperial Valley for
the last seven years. He Is now pro-
prietor of a meat market and is well
known. While somewhat reticent, Kess-
ling admitted today he had known for
some time he was being sought by rela-
tives. He said a relative died about two
weeks ago in Texas and that efforts were
made to communicate with him in regard
to property rights. ^
