cheers for him, stepped on the stage to
than!: the convention. In closing: his re
marks he said he was all the happier to
day because of the presence of "the dearest
woman In the world." It was not every

paid Mr. Land!, "involuntarily brings be
fore th faces of all of us with the distinct
ness of reality the splendid personality of
that man whom he loved and by whom he
was beloved. How vividly we recall the
presence of the President In this very city
three years ago." Mr. Landls went on to
ppeak cf the late President, paying to his
memory a most eloquent tribute. "Certain
ly," said he. "the moat bigoted of our op
lonents must concede some virtue to our
party, which, in its life of four decades,
lias given to immortality such men as Lin
coln. Grant. Garfield and McKinley."
Mr. Landis talked of the glowing record
of the Republican party since it "took the
reins of government from the feeble hands
of a divided, distracted and disgusted De
mocracy." He alluded to the Philippines,
recalling that Governor Taft has said that
the insurrection in these islands Is prac
tically a thing of the past. "I believe," said
Mr. Landis. "that the American Republic
Is to-day God's favored nation. I believe
the American people are God's chosen peo

both at home and abroad its mission at
home the happiness and prosperity of all
who owe allegiance to Its flag its mission
abroad the bestowal of the blessings of law
and order and civilized society upon other

PIANO FACTORY BURNED
LOSS OF FILLY .100,000 Sil TKHEI)
lY II A HTM A. , FECK & CO.
Fireman ami Spectator Injured Ken
tucky Reform School Fire Proltnbly
Stnrted by Rebellions Boys.
NEW YORK, March 20. Hartman, Teck
& Co., piano manufacturers, suffered a loss
of $300,000, possibly more, in tho destruction
to-night by fire of their plant, located at
West Forty-eighth street and the North
river. The fire started from some unknown
cause in the packing room, which is in the
three-story part of the big factory. There
it quickly spread throughout the entire
building. The roof of the building fell in
soon afterwards and gave rlso to the re
port that there had been an explosion. Just
west cf the three-story building stood a
frame stable. On the roof of this were a
number of firemen. When the walls fell a
lot of debris fell on the roof of tho stable,
Injuring one fireman and one spectator.
From the first mentioned building the tiro
got Into the firm's five-story structure and
wrecked the upper portion of It. The loss
was large because of the valuable machin
ery and woods in the burned buildings.
VALVC OF DISCIPLINE.
Inmates of n Horning Reform School
Arousetl and Marched Out.
LEXINGTON, Ky., March 20. The Brad
ley dormitory at the State School of Re
form, near this city, was destroyed by fire
shortb' after midnight, but all the inmates,
numbering ISO boys, were saved. All the
boys were asleep and the manner in which
they were saved was a marked instance of
the value of discipline. When the fire
started at 12:51 o'clock the watchman gave
the alarm and telephoned to Lexington for
an engine. The superintendent and the
guards promptly aroused tho boys and, fol
lowing the requirements of the fire drill,
the last boy was marched out of the build
ing just before the roof fell in. There was
no panic and no disorder. The discipline
and the fire drill saved many lives.
Two boys, inmates of the school, escaped
during the fire, and nothing has been heard
of them. The manuKemenl of the institu
tion believe that the building was set on
fire by boys who desired to escape. They
believe that it was a plot for others to es
cape also, but the night watchman's
prompt action prevented it. The nature of
the fire prevents ascertaining definitely yet
if it was set on lire.
Superintendent Douk will not say the fire
was incendiary, because complete investi
gation has not been made, but W. P. Wal
ton, one of the board of directors, says he
has information as to who are the guilty
ones and will ko before tho grand jury and
have them indicted. There has been no
confession except such as Mr. Walton may
have. The boys who escaped were William
Bracken, of Lexington, and Orover Ruske.
of Covington. Ky. They have not been
recaptured. It is said the superintendent
called out the puards. and. arming them
with Winchesters and shotguns, held the
unruly boys completely under control.
The burned building was erected In lCH,
during the administration of former Gov
ernor W. O. Bradley, at a cost of J25.'oot
and was Insured for two-thirds of Its value.
It was the only dormitory completed to
this time, excepting the one occupied by
the girls, three-quarters of a mile away.
Incitement in the Tomb.
NEW YORK. March 20. A small fire In
the Tombs prison to-day caused much ex
citement. The prisoners were marched into
the courtyard In the center of the prison
and the police reserves of the Delaney
street station were turned out. Hoso was
run into the building and the fiamey were
toon under control. No one was hurt.

ATHENS, Ga.. March 20.-Fire this after
noon destroj'ed the Rucker cotton compress

The los is $l!r.0"0. The insurance was near
ly all carried by the Marine Fire Insurance

running over a match.

Illehnrtona Munlrr (iivrn to Jnry.
SAVANNAH, Mo., March 20. Mrs. Ada
Richardson, wife of Frank W. Richardson,
for whose murder Stewart Fife Is being
tried, was accused of assisting the defense
by Attorney 1. K. Cross in his argument
to-day for the State. Mrs. Richardson had.
Attorney Cross said, since the opening of
tho trial, persisted in remaining In the
room, notwithstanding Judge Burns had in
structed that witnesses should not come
into court until called to testify. She had
also, he said, repeatedly passed notes to
Fife's attorneys, presumably suggesting
something of benefit to the defendant, and
the relathea of Mrs. Richardson had as
sisted the defendant in cvtry way inissible.
Frank Knickerbocker, mayor of Savan
nah, argued for the defense, and In the
course of his remarks mentioned the Du
rant case In California, telling the Jury
that an innocent man had been hanged,
after being prosecuted by the actual mur
derer. He talked at considerable length In
defense of Mrs. Richardson, who had al
ready been tried and acquitted of the mur
der of her husband. The arguments were
finished at 9 o'clock to-night, when the case
went to the Jury.

LOS ANGELES, Cal., March 20. Manager
McCarry, of the Century Athletic Club, re
ceived a telegram from Fltzsimmons short
ly before noon to-day, stating the pondi
tions under which he would accept the
club's offer to pull off the proposed fight
with Jeffries in this city. The text of Fitz
simmons's message has not been given out,
but it is understood he ask3 for 73 per cent,
of the gate receipts and a guarantee of
$23,00o. This combines two of the club's
r original bids of a $25,000 cash purse or 10
per cent, or tne gate receipts wunoui u
guarantee, and raises by $3,000 and 5 per
cent, the third bid of 70 per cent, of the gate
receipts and ?2u,00o guarantee.
President McCarry, of the Century Club,
stated this afternoon that he had received
Fitzsimmons's telegram and had replied in
behalf of the club. "Fitzsimmor-3 Is too
exacting," said McCarry. "He combines
two of our propositions and wants both.
We still think our bid of a $25.000 cash
purse is the best to be had, and perhaps
Fltzsimmons will come to see It that way.
We have replied to his telegTam, but I am
not ready to state the conditions made
therein. An answer Is expected to-nlght,
however. If it comes we will know just
where we stand."
OAKLAND, Cal.. March 20. When shown
the Fltzsimmons statement, that he would
tight In Ixs Angeles under certain condi
tions, Billy Delaney, Jeffrles's manager,
said: "I do not believe Fltzsimmons intends
to fight. I will not believe that he intends
to fight until he is in California. I have
not heard from Jeffries regarding the dis
patch, but I know he will be delighted and
will grab at anything that means a meet
ing with Fltzsimmons. I don't know
whether the Los Angeles club will consent
to suggestions from Fltzsimmons or not.
but 1 do know that they are serious and
good sporting men and will do anything fair
and Within reason on their part."
NEW YORK. March 20. The telegram
from the manager of the Century Athletic
Club to Fltzsimmons stated that the fight
er would have to accept definitely one of
the bids submitted, failing to do which
the club would cancel its offers. Fltzsim
mons shortly afterward replied to the tele
gram, adhering to the position he had orig
inally taken and saying that the club could
either acquiesce or call its bids off.
Jlrnad and Attel Fight to n Draw.
ST. LOUIS. March 20. "Kid" Broad, of
Cleveland. O., and Abe Attell, of San Fran
cisco, fought fifteen rounds to a draw be
fore the West End Athletic Club to-night.
Broad was the aggressor throughout, but
his bulldog style availed him nothing as
against the extreme cleverness of the Cali
fornia fighter. Broad strove with might and
main to land a knockout blow in every
round, but his efforts were futile. Attell
either blocking his leads or getting inside
of them, and at times fighting back vicious
ly in Broad's own style. Attell used a left
jab to tho face which Broad could not
evade, but the latter broke even by his
good righting in the clinches with one arm
free. The men were announced to go on at
126 pounds, but It was plainly evident that
Attell was several pounds below tind Broad
several pounds above that figure. Dave
Nelson refcrecd the bout and his ruling was

Topliff. representative of the originator of
the system, the latter being at the Detroit

TALK AVITII Till: AERONAUT OX HIS
COMCNU VISIT TO AMERICA.
Proposes a Fifteen-Mile Aerial Track
Around St. Louis nnd a Race
Prixe of $1011,000.
PARIS, March 20. M. Santos-Dumont,
the aeronaut. In an interview here to-night
with the representative of the Associated
Tress, appeared very enthusiastic concern
ing his approaching trip to the United
States, whither he will go on his own initi
ative. M. Santos-Dumont said:
"Yes, after some negotiations I have de
cided to go to St. Louis and assist in draw
ing up the rules for the aerial contests of
I will be accompanied by my secre
tary and my chief mechanic. I will take
with me as far as New York the forty-five
horse-power motor, the framework and the
two propellers of my balloon No. 7. From
New York I shall rroceed to St. Louis to
confer with the exposition authorities re
garding the contest.
"My Idea is to make a sort of aerial track,
say fifteen miles in circumference, around
St. Louis, marked by captive balloons and
visible for the whole distance from the ex
position grounds, which are to form the
starting and finishing points. There should
be a series of races, varying In distance
from one to several times around the track.
Rut I am strongly in favor of establishing
one big race, a sort of aerial Grand Prix,
with a $100.000 prize. This would be a great
stimulus to competition and should attract
a number of the Inventions of the various
systems of dirigible balloons. I shall cer
tainly participate in the contests, and I
hope to meet many rivals.
"I have a number of other ideas which I
believe will contribute to the success of the
tournament, but I reserve them for dis
cussion with the authorities. I expect to
spend altogether about a fortnight in Amer
ica, durlpg which time the mechanical part
of my balloon will be put together at New
York. I shall investigate the possibilities
of a contest at New York in the autumn,
and If I hnd the prize offered to be of suf
ficient amount I will return and try to win
it, as I did the Deutsch prize."
When asked how large this prize should
be, M. Santos-Dumont replied. "I think it
ought to be about 500,(HH) francs, because
the expenses will be heavy; it will cost
about 100.000 francs to build a balloon shed.
I will not return to New York unless a
prize be offered for competition The ex
pense would be too heavy for me to go
simply to give displays, and I do not wish
to go at the expense of anybody else. If
no prize is offered I will leave the mechan
ical parts of my balloon at New York until
the St. Louis exposition opens. If a prize
is promised I shall return to Ixmdon to
compete for the prize offered there for the
race to Birmingham with my No.. 6. Then,
at the end of July, I will take the envelope
of my No. 7 balloon to New York and re
main there a couple of months."

Yachting IVorld Pleased nidi His
Promise to Race Columbia Abroad.
LONDON, March 20. The Yachting
World enthusiastically halls the suggestion
that J. Pierpont Morgan may race the
Columbia in European waters as being a
business-like and sporting declaration, and
adds that nothing would so enthrall public
interest as a series of matches between the
famous cup defender and one of the Sham
rocks, probably Shamrock I. The paper
adds: "One great advantage of such a series
sailed In British waters would be to settle
in a measure the vexed question whether In
races off Sandy Hook the British challen
ger must always sail to some disadvantage,
and it would also decide another debatable
point which has much exercised the minds
of yachtsmen since the two Shamrocks
sailed their trial races, In 1M1, namely,
"whether with her altered sail plan the
older boat 13 a much faster vessel than
when she made her famous bid for the

Wood left here early to-day on the Ka

It Is reported that before he left General
Wood expressed his disapproval of the bill
granting a tariff reduction of 20 per cent.
on Cuban products Imported Into the United
States. He takes this ground because a
reduction so small will do no pood to Cuba.
He declared, it is said, that the economic
situation In the island demands more liberal
tariff concessions if they are to be of any
avail, or that which all Cubans hope for
complete commercial reciprocity.
