Behind Mr. Bryan's militarism and talk
of trusts stalks his Immediate demand for
a cheap dollar.
No Democrat has ever presented an anti
trust bill In Congress, except In the inter
est of free trade.
Theodore Roosevelt "will be forty-two
years old on the 27th of this month. He is
young, but not inexperienced.
Mr. Bryan will learn that the American
people do iiot take to men who extol the
armed enemies of the United States.
Republicans up and down Indiana:
Things are going? your way; but put in
the work hard and fast to make it sure.
The least thii.g that any man can do for
Indiana these days is to do something: to
make the defeat of the Bryan party sure.
Four years ago Mr. Bryan predicted
10-cent corn and 45-cent wheat, but he
makes no allusion to this as he goes along.
' Mr. Bryan has not yet announced him
self in favor of hauling down the flag in
Porto Rico cr Alaska, but he has yet four
The only suit against a trust now pend
ing: 1 In New York, where the Tammany
judges have Interposed In behalf of the
Timmany ice trust.
No matter who he may be, the man who
attempts to Incite one portion of the
American people to distrust another por
tion Is a public enemy.
Because Mr. Bryan rants of trusts and
Imperialism, no intelligent man will forget
that he forced into the Kansas City plat
form the 15-to-l plank and marked it 'im
Really. Mr. Bryan did the Republicans
so much good service In the gas belt that
the Republican committees should pay the
Democratic committees the amount paid
for Mr. Bryan's speeches.
No man of sense will deny that better
wages and fuller employment followed the
election of McKinley. With such an ad
mission, how can the sane, sensible wage
earners vote for a change to Bryan?
It was in the nature of things that the
Democratic officials in Missouri should de
Tote the school fund to other than school
purposes. They know the foe of the rock
ribbed Democracy when they see it.
At Terre Haute Mr. Bryan declared that
he had experienced no change of heart on
the money question. When the votes shall
be counted he will find that the American
people are of the same mind they were four
The gain in deposits in the banks In
many villages of Indiana has been some
thing remarkable. In one village in Ham
Uton county the deposits have doubled In
two years, showing that farmers have
money now who did not have It in 1806 and
The Louisville Courier-Journal Is trying
In a poor and. feeble manner to win the
favor of the Bryanltes by charging that
the employers of labor In Indiana are
threatening to discharge workmen who
vote the Democratic ticket. The Courier-
Journal cannot name an instance.
At the United States arsenal there are
twenty-three soldiers. That number has
been there for some years, and the com
mercial organizations have been trying to
induce the authorities to establish a mili
tary post near this city. Until Mr. Bryan
spoke here no one feared the twenty-three
soldiers at the arsenal. Now they should
be viewed with absolute terror, because
Mr. Bryan tells us that they are placed
there to overawe discontented wage-earners.
Thus does militarism, the man on
horseback, steal upon us unaware in the
ahape of twenty-three enlisted men all the
federal soldiers in the State of Indiana!
The correspondent of a Chicago paper
predicts that Colonel Durbln will run be
hind McKinley, not because he Is not well
qualified for the offlce of Governor, but be
cause Mr. Kern is fo generally popular. It
is true that Mr. Kern is a pleasant man
rerynnally, but no man has said meaner
things nf Republicans than does Mr. Kern
about every time he makes a speech. There
I no reason why a Republican should vote
for Mr. Kern unless he desires to destroy
all that hm tx-en accomplished for good
government in the State under Republican
ule. Mr. Kern stands for Taggartlsm, and
Tasgartism in this city stands for extrava
gance and loose administration. If Colonel
Durbln shall be Governor the business
mithoda of the present administration will
be continued. It may be added that the
Journal takes no stock In the prediction of
the Chicago correspondent. Colonel Durbln
Is making one of the most careful can-
vasscs that can be made, and has met the
voters as few candidates are able to do.
THE PARAMOUNT ISSUE.
Weeks ago Captain William E. English
declared that "Bryanism is the issue of the
campaign." Every passing day shows the
correctness of the declaration. Above
every issue towers the personality of Mr.
Bryan and the quality known as Bryanism.
It is the fear of the danger which the suc
cess or Bryan would involve met nas
aroused tho country during the past few
weeks. Senator Depew marks the revolu
tion of sentiment in New York outside of
the city. It appears in the quickened in
terest which business men all over the
country are taking in the campaign. It
comes to Republican canvassers in Indiana
who have made addresses to farmers. The
fear of Bryanism has caused hundreds of
manufacturers to defer new enterprises un
til after the election. Mr. Bryan, sur
rounded by shouting and applauding audi
ences, may think the country is with him
Just as he did four years ago, but he for
gets the millions of people in their homes
who read these speeches in cold print and
wonder what absurdity he will next be
guilty of. When he tells the people in this
city that it is the purpose of the Repub
licans to place a fort near every large city
that labor may be overawed he causes the
neutral Chicago Record to ask in indig
nant surprise is Mr. Bryan "a mischief
maker or a fool?" Tens of thousands of
men are asking themselves the Fame ques
tion, changing it, perhaps, so as to read:
"Does this mischief-maker Imagine that we
are fools?" Men who may not approve the
Philippine policy are shocked when he com
pares Agulnaldo to Washington, and says
those who accuse ,him of Influencing
Agulnaldo "do me too much honor whsn
they accuse me of keeping the Filipinos
contending for their independence," be
cause such contending involves the killing
of American soldiers. Already that ele
ment of people who determine elections as
they vote with one party or the other have
become astonished at the "breaks" Mr.
Bryan makes dally, and ask themselves
what new folly, what new appeal to strife,
what new threat against the peace and
the prosperity of the land will he make.
It is the peril of Bryanism that has
aroused the people in the past three weeks
the peril of Bryanism as proclaimed In
his speeches. Those who would have re
forms and better conditions know that they
can hope for nothing from a man who
makes Croker his ally in New Tork. Those
who know that peace and confidence are
essential to prosperity will not turn to
the man who threatens to overthrow the
currency system and to make war upon
Industry. Bryanism is the Issue; and, while
other men will have Influence, the speeches
that he delivers, read by millions of peo
ple, are convincing them that Bryan Is
a menace to the best Interests of tho
AN ODIOUS DE3IOCRATIC TRUST.
The American Sugar Refining Company
Is no longer a trust in the sense of a
monopoly, because the independent refiners
have been able, with all its advantages, to
compel a cutting of prices. For years, how
ever, it was a Democratic trust one of
those which Mr. Bryan protested against in
his letter of acceptance "for attempting to
assume control of the instrumentalities of
government." It is a well-known fact that,
in the last Congress in which Mr. Bryan
sat, the sugar trust, with a powerful lobby,
not only assumed to control, but did control
"the instrumentalities of government," if
that means getting a sugar schedule in the
Gorman tariff law favorable to the corpo
ration's interest. Mr. Bryan voted, with
out protest, for the Gorman bill, which
Mr. Cleveland denounced as an act of party
perfidy. Of all the combinations in the
country the sugar trust has taken most
money from the people, and all its meth
ods are in restraint of trade, yet the
"Washington Post, which is owned by Dem
ocrats, says the Democratic national com
mittee, through Its agents, has solicited
and received a large campaign contribution
from this odious combination.
The sugar trust has always had Demo
cratic friends in Congress indeed, has them
now. During the last session of Congress
Mr. Richardson, the Democratic leader in
the House, offered a resolution providing
that Cuban and Porto RIcan sugars be ad
mitted free of duty. As a considerable por
tion of our raw sugar comes from Cuba,
but not enough to control the price, a large
part of the duties remitted would have
gone to swell the profits of the sugar trust.
It is estimated that the Richardson propo
sition would have enriched the sugar trust
115,000,000 a year. When it was proposed to
take the duties collected from sugar and
other articles imported from Porto Rico
and devote them to the people of that
island. Senator Jones proposed an amend
ment by which such duties should be re
turned to those who had paid them. It was
found that this proposition would have re
stored J1.4S7.S66 to the sugar trust and its
agents. It may be said that Mr. Jones,
chairman of the Bryan national committee,
did not understand the effect of his propo
sition. That is equivalent to admitting that
the senator is a fool. Fortunately, the Re
publican senators rejected Mr. Jones's
proposition, the money was used to relieve
the natives of Porto Rico, and the Demo
cratic sugar trust was not benefited by
Mr. Jones's zeal.
TEACHERS OF LAWLESSNESS.
People are Indignant because hoodlums
assaulted the Governor of New York as he
came out of a church door in Chicago on
Sunday. It Is natural that they should ex
press their indignation, because such ex
hibitions of lawlessness are a menace to
the security of any man or woman whom
the hoodlum element choose to dislike. Why
is Governor Roosevelt not liked by the
hoodlums of Chicago? Because they are
the youngsters who tcll and read the
Hearst newspapers. They read nothing
else. From week's end to week's end
these papers are filled with appeals to the
low passions and the prejudices of the
ignorant. Their gross and Indecent pic
tures make monsters of iolltlcal foes. From
the Chicago American the young ruffians
who threw mud and filth. at the Governor
of New York have taken their first lessons
In that sort of lawlesnet-s for which an
archy I? the better name. The wretch who
threw a piece of ice through the opening of
a tent at Senator llanna belongs to a more
advanced class of the Hearst school of
lawlessness. Both, however, arc filled with
the spirit of vengeance. Each day the
papers of this multimillionaire are laboring
to array one element of society against an
otherthe poor against the rich the em
ploye against the employer. If the spirit
of vlclousness and hatred which pervades
every issue of these papers should find
lodgment in the hearts of men, the coun
try would be Involved in deadly strife.
These papers have done all they can do
to excite the miners in the anthracite
region to hostility without advising them
to open lawlessness. These papers are the
leading advocates of the election of Mr.
Bryan, and, of all the Democratic editors
in the country Mr. Hearst stands nearest
to Mr. Bryan.
"Remember what I said four years ago,"
was Mr. Bryan's admonition to one of his
audiences in this State. Here is one of
the Bryan, prophecies of 1SD6 to which he
put his name:
I hereby make the following prophecy:
If William McKinley is elected and put n
power for the next four years, wages will
decrease, hard times will come upon us,
and over the land the price of wheat will
go down, the price of gold will go up, mort
gages will be foreclosed by the money
lenders and sharks, the factories and mills
will close, we will export no goods, but will
Import from foreign lands all the goods we
will use. Want and misery will be with us.
Remember what I say.
Sensible men who remember the above
will take no stock in Bryan as a prophet
or as a man of ordinary Judgment.
So far as reported in his speeches yes
terday, Mr. Bryan did not Inform any of
his audiences that God was a Democrat.
That statement, made at Linton, Ind., on
Saturday, may not be Intended for use
The decision of Judge Jordan regarding
trusts shows that all that Is required to
put an end to any monopoly is to bring a
suit and prove that the trust is in restraint
All this chatter about Indiana being
surely Democratic is nonsense. Indiana is
a Northern State, allied to the progress and
energy of the North, and not with the solid
The empire is quite close to those States
like Georgia, in which the people have so
little Interest that only 50,000 of 550,000 vot
ers actually voted last week.
After the carnival is over it is expected
that the Hon. Frank B. Burke will hold a
joint debate with his record on labor legis
As the tide is running, four weeks from
to-day McKinley will be re-elected.
The Terre Haute Express celebrates the
seventieth anniversary of the establish
ment of the paper by issuing a very hand
some souvenir edition, whose principal fea
tures are an historical and industrial rec
ord of the Prairie City. A chapter contain
ing some interesting history of the settle
ment and growth of the city is followed
by an account of its commercial develop
ment and a description of the business
establishments and social and industrial
institutions which make the place the busy
and important center which it has long
been. Tho illustrations showing the city's
various attractions, among which are to
be counted a number of very good-looking
men and women, are excellent. Text and
pictures together furnish even to strang
ers a clear idea of social and com
mercial conditions there, while to thoie
familiar with the town and people it will
be of real value as a souvenir, and is like
ly to be in demand by such persons
throughout the State. The edition is high
ly creditable to the publishers.

ST. LOUIS, Mo., Oct. 8. That particular
portion of Illinois known as Egypt was
pretty thoroughly canvassed by W. J.
Bryan to-day. The principal cities of
eleven of the southern counties of the
State and three of the congressional dis
tricts were visited, and large audiences ad
dressed at the various stopping places.
Fourteen addresses were made from 7
o'clock in the morning, when the first
speech, at Salem, was delivered, until the
train bearing the nominee and his party
pulled out of Alton at nearly midnight. At
every meeting the candidate was greeted
with hearty demonstrations, and his re
marks were applauded everywhere. At
East St. Louis Mr, Bryan and Governcr
Roosevelt crossed each other's paths. As
Governor Roosevelt had a meeting there,
Mr. Bryan passed through and went on-to
At Salem, where Mr. Bryan spent his
boyhood, he was given a warm reception.
He talked almost an hour, near the court
house in which his father had held court
from 1S60 to 1872, and in which he him
self made his first political speech twenty
eight years ago. He referred to his boy
hood days and friends with much feeling.
Mr. Bryan was Introduced by Judge Wil
liam Prentiss of Chicago and among other
T am clad tn h nmnnir the rjeODle with
whom I lived. If I wanted to declare my
self a great man, this is the last place I
would come to make such a declaration be

but if anyone wanted to declare
that I was a bad man I would want mm

how certain they are that my election
would be injurious to the country or iney
would not exhibit the pictures upon mo

It is to these Republicans that I desire to
appeal. When I return to Salem 1 tuid

visit Republicans and Democrats have
passed over into the land where differences

Mr. Bryan concluded nis speecn wim an
argument on the trust question on mili
tarism and imperialism. After leaving
Salem he made ten-minute speeches at
Mount Vernon and at Benton. At tnese
places he was received by large, enthusi
astic audiences. Ills speeches were along
the same general lines as those delivered
SPEECH TO REPUBLICANS.
The ten-minute stop at Marion was
utilized by Mr. Bryan In a discussion of
the trust question. At that place there was
a large percentage of . Republicans in his
audience, as indicated by . yellow ribbons.
He spoke from a small platform erected
near the track to an audience consisting
of several thousand people. He said In

"I want to say that the miner has to cast

IIANNA RIDICULED AGAIN.
The whole south of "Egypt" was well
represented in Cairo when Mr. Bryan ar
rived at Cairo. HI. speech was devoted
mainly to the trusts, although the question
of a large standing army and the question
of imperialism each received some ati;n
tion at his hands. Among other thing he
"The Republican party has not futfilled
Its promises. It will not do anything of
permanent and lasting advantage to
the great majority of the people,
and the reason Is that It Is
to-day controlled, guided and directed
by organized combined wealth. and
combined wealth demands not equal right,
but special privileges, and every privilege
granted by law to these great comhln.i
tlons Is taken from the people. Whenovr
you find that .1 few people, by operation of
law. are paining an advantage you may
test assured that that advantage is con
Ing from somebodj. The trouble is that
the government gathers a little from each
person and dumps the whole amount Into
the laps of a few and the few receive it in
large amount, and you see the evidence
of their prosperity, while the little is col
lected from each one and the Republican
party is forgetting the man from whom
it collects while it takes care of th-3 man
Tho receives. All over the land are the
hörne of forgotten men men whose rights
are disregarded, men whose interests are
neglected because of the demands made by
combined capital. We are not enemies of
honestly acquired . wealth, xo one wno
wants to eat the bread that he earns and
to earn the bread that he eats need be
afraid of the success of our ticket. The
only man who needs to fear is the man
who wants to eat the bread that some
body else earns and wants to eat it without
paying for it.
"The Republican party promised you in
ternational agreement: it brought you the
gold standard. It is now turning the issue
of paper money over to the national banks
so that the banks can issue and control
the amount of the money that the people
use. How is it that any person directly in
terested in the issue of paper money can
favor a plan which places this almost om
nipotent power in private hands? I want
you to ask yourselves how a note signed
by a bank can be better than a note signed
by the government?
"The Republican party Is placing the bur
den of government upon the people with
out regard to equity. It is making the
poor man ray more than his share of the
taxes of the government. We favor an
Income tax that will make every man con

according to the benefits he derives from
"When the President was inaugurated in
March, 1S97, he promised that he would en
force the laws against the trusts and that
he would recommend new laws if neces
sary. Three and a half years have passed
and the attorney general does not enforce
the trust laws, and the President has al
lowed three sessions of Congress to con
vene and adjourn and has never yet rec
ommended a specific remedy for the trusts.
More trusts have ' been organized during
the last three and a half years than in
all the previous history of the country,
and Mr. llanna, the dominating factor in
the Republican party, has given us three
definitions of the trust. He says that In
the first place there are no trusts; then
next he says the trust is a good thing, and
then he said: 'Do not be afraid of the
trusts; if they are injurious we will take
care of them.' What a consolation it is to
be a Republican and not have to think
just to teel you are safe In the arms of
Hanna. I believe you must destroy the
trusts or they will destroy the country."
REPEATS A STALE JOKE.
Jonesboro, Ills., was the first station at
which Mr. Bryan's train stopped after
leaving Cairo. The Democratic candidate
spoke at that place for fifteon minutes.
He said that the definition of the Republi
can party is that it is an association of ath
letes trained to turn somersaults In unison
whenever the leaders say "flop."
Murphy sboro was reached at 3:15 and a
half hour's stop made. Mr. Bryan was
taken to the courthouse yard, where there
were gathered a large and enthusiastic
crowd of miners, railroad men and farmers.
His remarks were directed more to the
laboring men than his other speeches of the
At Percy Mr. Bryan spoke for ten min
utes from a platform erected near the
train. There were also short speeches at
Red Bud and Waterloo.
East St. Louis afforded a unique spec
tacle when the Bryan train arrived. There
was no general information in that city
concerning the time that Mr. Bryan was
to reach there, but the announcement had
been made that Colonel Roosevelt would
ppeak there at 8 o'clock. When Mr. Bryan
arrived at quarter past 8, the colonel had

many who came to hear him remained to
greet Mr. Bryan. The people pushed after
the Uryan car as it was being switched
about, yelling madly for him, and demand

standstill there was a general rush for the
platform, where Bryan stood, with renewed
demands for a speech. Mr. Bryan spoke
a few words, and then shook hands with
all who could reach him.
There was also a big crowd at Granite

five minutes on the general issues of the

At Alton Mr. Bryan spoko to thousands
of people. His audience was said to be
the largest ever assembled in that city.
The meeting was in the open air, and Mr.
Bryan spoke with his hat on. Some one
yelled, "Take off your hat, like Teddy did."
Mr. Bryan did not, however, comply with
this request. He had scarcely begun speak

flags on the stand cut off his view of the
audience. He promptly tore down the ob

Some cried:. "Don t tear down the flag;"
others, "Tear it down; it is where it ought
to be taken down.
Mr. Bryan made no reference to these
remarks, and when he had concluded the
dismantling process sufficiently to answer

HENRY YOUTSEY'S TRIAL
HIS COUNSEL MAKES A GAME FIGHT
IN THE PRELIMINARIES.
Witnesses of the First Day Denl
Lnrsrely with Old Matters Jury
Will VI It Frankfort To-Day.
GEORGETOWN, Ky.. Oct. S. The Yout
sey trial began in reality to-day, and re
markable progress was made once the ex
amination of witnesses began. The jury
will be taken to Frankfort to-morrow morn
ing to view the scene of the tragedy, and
will not return before 3 o'clock. The most
important witnesses to-day and to-night
were M. R. Todd, Frank II. Johnson, J.
B. Matthews, Louis Smith and Wade Watts.
Their testimony was circumstantially
strong against Youtsej. but his attorneys
are confident of disproving any presumption
of his participation in the murder.
A special venire of fifteen men from
Bourbon county was present this morning
when the Youtsey trial was called in the
Circuit Court. The first man called was
accepted by both sides and the Jury was
complete. The jury was sworn and Attor
ney T. F. Bradley made the statement to
the Jury for the commonwealth. Colonel
Crawford, for the defense, moved to dis
charge the Jury on the ground, first, that
the Jury Is not composed of bystanders,
but summoned from remote parts of the
county; second, that the jurymen are all
Democrats, and as the crime charged in
volves politics to a large extent the de
fendant cannot expect a. fair and Impar
tial trial from such a Jury. Mr. Youtsey
filed two affidavits In support of the mo
tion, which was overruled by Judge Can
trill. Crawford filed another motion to require
the commonwealth to elect whether it
would try Youtsey for actually firing the
shot or for aiding and abetting the man
who did lire the shot. The court 'said that
was a matter over which he had no con
trol and the attorneys could confer con
cerning it. Franklin said the common
wealth simply wished to try Youtsey under
the indictment and let the Jury say whether
he fired the shot.
The Jury was brought in and Crawford
fl.'ed a demurrer to the indictment on the
ground that It named no one as firing the
hot and that It did not tuQclentl de
scribe the offense charged against Youtsey.
The court took the demurrer under ad
visement during the noon -recess. Crawford
asked leave to stale the case for the de
fendant right after the commonwealth
ftattd its case. The court ruled he could
do o If the commonwealth did not object.
At the afternoon session Judge cantnu
overruled the demurrer to the indictment
in which th defendant excepted. The
tcmmonwealth's attorney said he preferred
the defense would not make Its statement
until aftr the prosecution concluded Us
direct testimony, and it was so ordered.
The court, on motion of the State, agreed
that the jury should be taken to nanu
fort to-morrow morning, and Attorney J.
A. Scott, of Frankfort, was put on the
fetand. He said Youtsey talked to him in
his (Scott's) house about his connection
with the shooting, but said nothing about
tmploying him as his attorney: that nine
or ten days later Youtsey did come to his
office and ask him to "stand by him;" that
he (Scott) replied. "I will stand by you if
you are right." The defense here objected
to Scott testifying, because the relation of
attorney and client prohibited it. The Jury
retired and a discussion followed as to
whether or not Scott must tell what Yout
sey said in the first conversation. Judge
Cantrill called Scott up on the bench, and
after a long private conversation with him
decided that Scott could not testify.
Z. T. Thomason, a Frankfort policeman,
told of running to Goebel's body and help
ing to carry it to the Capital Hotel. He
heard the shots, and the first one sounded
as if fired by smokeless powder; he had
hunted much, and was acquainted with the
difference in sound between smokeless
fowder and black powder. He told of find
ng the bullet in the hackberry tree fen
days or more after the shooting.
Dr. T. R. Welch, State senator from
Jessamine, told of a post-mortem examina
tion of the wound in Goebel s body made
by him and Drs. Hume and Ely; said tho
bullet entered the right side.-near the arm
pit, went directly through and came out
of the left side of the back
bone, one and three-sixteenths inches lower
down than where it entered; that pieces of
bene driven into the lung indicated uner
ringly that the bullet entered on the right
McKenzie Todd, private secretary to
Governor Taylor in January, said: "On
Saturday, Jan. 27, my attention was called
tc Youtsey by Treasurer Day, in the re
ception room of the secretary of state,
lie was sitting in the middle window with
a gun in his hand. The window was raised
a little and the curtain pulled down. I
asked hlrn what he was doing with that
gun. He said: There is trouble up there,
pointing to the legislative building. 'I don't
intend to start any trouble, but if it starts
I will be prepared for It.'
"He pulled back a long board standing
tigainst the wall disclosing some guns and
said to me they say Powers Is a brave
man, but when there are signs of trouble
he hides his guns.' Just after that Powers
came in and Youtsey again said he would
not start anything, but was prepared for
ttouble. I told him he ought not to think
of shooting out that window and Youtsey
said 'that's right, it would never do "
He said he saw young Youtsey again the
Monday morning before Goebel was shot.
Powers was present. Youtsey asked if
there were any chances of winning the con
tst, and when told the attorneys felt hope
ful, seemed to bo satisfied. After telling of
hearing the shot and looking out the win
dow and seeing a man lying on the side
walk, Todd was taken off the stand and the
court took a recess.
At nlsht Todd told of Youtsey's presence
in Powers's offlce on the day of the shoot
ing. The door was locked. About ten min
utes after the shooting Youtsey was In the
Governor's offlce. He had no arms and
said nothing. Todd was not cross-examined.
The Adams Express employe from Cin
cinnati told of receiving and receipting
for a package from the Powell & Clemens
Company, billed to Youtsey, and of for
warding the same to him at Frankfort,
Frank II. Johnson, a deputy auditor un
der Governor Taylor, told of a conversation
with Youtsey prior to Jan. SO, In which
Youtsey expressed himself as aggrieved at
Goebel for something tho latter had done,
but as to the nature of the alleged mis
treatment he did not know. Johnson tald
that after the shooting he called up all
the clerks in the auditor's office and asked
them their exact whereaabouts at the
time of the shooting: that when he asked
Youtsey where he was, Youtsey. said "I
was in a safe place." Witness said that a
week or ten days later he asked Youtsey
again where he was when the shot was
fired and he told him that he was In the
basement of the executive building; that
he was troubled with hemorrhoids and
had to remain in the toilet room every day
for a considerable time.
Ed Steffle, the telegraph messenger,
said he saw a gun barrel sticking out of
Powers's office window, a second or two
after the shot was fired; the gun was with
drawn a second later, but he saw no smoke.
Ed Porter Thompson, jr., who was op
posite the cast entrance to the executive
building when the Fhots were fired, said a
minute after the shooting he saw Youtsey
run around the executive building from
the basement entrance and up the steps
and go in at the east entrance.
J. B. Matthews, assistant secretary of
Ftate under Powers, said Youtsey came
into his office about a minute after the
shooting, with a pistol in his hand. About
ten minutes later Matthews broke open
the transom and climbed into Powers's of
fice. He saw a rifle lying on the floor near
the west front window, another leaning
against the wall and a carbine in the south
west corner, next to the bookcase. He
said after Youtsey was arrested he told
him that he knew the front window In
Powers's office was not raised, but bolted
down, Jan. 30.
Wade Watts and Louis Smith, keepers of
tho toilet room in the basement, told of
Feeing Youtsey run 'through their room
a few seconds after the shooting. Court
adjourned until to-morrow.

fays that to properly adjust these differ

much time will be required to settle the
strike and it would not be satisfactory.
Besides referring to the wage scale ef
fective in the three distinct regions of the
anthracite field, and the various conditions,
the statement says:
"All of the coal operators having now
conceded an advance in wages, it can be
truthfully said that the miners of the an
thracite region have achieved a great vic
tory. Yet, ' the dispute is not settled, nor
will It be even though the miners accept
the proposition of the operators and re
turn to work. The sliding scale, dockage,
semi-monthly pay and other grievances
complained of by the miners have not been
considered in the proposition of the opera
tors, and the advance In wages is so com
plicated with the reduction in the price of
powder that many of the miners do not
understand it. Under these circumstances
the surest and best method of securing a
settlement and establishing permanent
peace, would come from a meeting of the
operators with the anthracite miners, when
they meet to consider the offer of the coal

CASE ADJ0UBNED A WEEK
STATEMENT FI103I DISTRICT ATTOR
NEY GARDNER, OF NEW YORK.
Ills Efforts to SolTe a Mystery That Is
Pnaallnff the Authorities Patrlek
the Beneficiary of the Will.
NEW YORK, Oct. S. District Attorn?y
Gardner made a statement to-day con
cerning the work done by his offlce to solva
the mystery surrounding the death of Wil
liam R. Rice and the checks with his name,
"This matter," said the districts attorney,
"was first brought to my attention by the
banking houses of Swenson & Sons througu
their counsel, 2lr. Gerard, who considered
the conduct of Patrick and Jones so very
suspicious as to make it desirable that
the information in their possession should
be communicated to the authorities. From
the Information received from Mr. Gerard
It appeared that Patrick had presented
a check for 123.000, knowing Mr. Rice to
be dead, and concealed the fact from tha
banking house, and when they tried to
communicate with Mr. Rice, owing to th
suspicion aroused by the check Itself, they
were met by evasive answers over tha
telephone by the valet, who at first con
cealed the fact of the decease of Mr. Rice.
Then they made further inquiries and as
certained that the body had been promptly
embalmed with ansenous fluid, although
Mr. Rice had in his lifetime said he was
opposed to anything of that sort, and the
funeral was being hastened with Intent to
cremate the body. The aituatlon teemed
to be one which required prompt action,
and the detective force was Immediately
communicated with by telephone, and Mr.
Gerard was sent for to give all necessary
information. Coroner Hart was called into
the case, and requested to prevent tha
tuneral. Meanwhile the brother of the de
ceased was hastening from Texas.
"Last week Patrick called on me with
his private counsel. Assistant District At
torney Unger was also present and tha
conference lasted nearly, an hour. In that
time Patrick's attention was called to a
number of very suspicious circumstances,
Earticularly as to the embalming of the
ody with onsenous fluid, when it was
about to be cremated. He jave no explan
ation of this, but admitted that all. or
pearly all, of Mr. Rice's property had been
assigned to him. Tho object of such as
signment ha did not disclose. The ques
tions asked seemed to cause him some agi
tation, as his hand shook perceptibly,
which was noticed both by Mr. Unger and
myself. I have aeen a number of th
checks of Mr. Rice drawn to tho order of
Patrick, the defendant, and two of them
appear to me to be clumsy forgeries. Tho
whole subject will be thoroughly investi
gated not only as to tha cause of the
death of Mr. Rice, but also as to this re-,
markable series of proceedings. To me 't
seems that there has been a conspiracy to
obtain possession cf the bulk of Mr. Rice's
Capt. McClusky. speaking of what he had
learned from D. L. Short and Morris Mey
ers, whose signatures as witnesses appear
on the various alleged assignments to Pat
rick and on the alleged will made by Mr.
"Both Short and Meyers talked to me
fully tnd with seeming frankness. Both
were witnesses to the will, which give
practically everything to Patrick. This will
was dated and executed in Mr. Rce's
apartments on June 30 last. I have not seen
the original, as it is in Patrick's possession.
According to the statements of Short and
Meyers relative to the signing of this will,
they had both gone to Mr. Rice's flat to
tako acknowledgments of certain papers.
They had finished this work and were talk
ing with Mr. Rice, when he said: 'Wait a
minute; I have got something else I want
you to do." He came back, and is alleged
by Short and Meyers to have said: This is
my will, and I want to execute it. They
said he signed the document in their pres
ence, and they made the customary ac
knowledgment of the signature. Both said
they did not know the contents of the will;
Patrick was not present, they declared, at
"I said to Short: This Is a most peculiar
affair all around,' and he replied: You
must remember that this old man was most
peculiar and his affairs are bound to be
peculiar. They said Rice would often send
for them to come to the flat to take ac
knowledgments of his signature to certain
papers, and when they got there he would
change his mind, saying: 'We won't bother
about this to-day. I'll think it over for a
time.' They declared he knew perfectly
well what he was doing all the time, and
dominated and directed his own business
Assistant District Attorney Osborne, who
has charge of the. prosecution of Patrick
and Jones, the valet, on the charge of for
gery in connection with the two checks for
$55.000 and $25,000 drawn on Swonson äs
Sons, said last night: "If for any reason
Magistrate Crane should see fit to dis
charge the men I will not move Immedi
ately for their rearrest. But I have already
sufficient evidence to prove their connec
tion with tho forgeries. No complete report
has as yet been made by the handwriting
experts, but as far as they have gone they
are of the opinion that the valet Jones
wrote the writing on the face of the two
checks. Patrick is connected with the mat
ter, as he had possession of the checks, and
they both were drawn to his order. That
Is sufficient to show he was a party to tha
alleged conspiracy. There will be no trouble
about the forgery phase of the case. At
the proper time evidence will be produced
to show that these men engaged in similar
