Park*.- 8 failure to substantiate his chare** against
itbe President at the eleventh hour lost him a big
; campaign contribution that was to have, been

on Election Day and the day before. Hud M been
trie to i'.rod'jce anything like p'.uusible proof of the
" corruption he charged against th« President and
' dial .-man Oortelyou. this large fund would have
been poured into the supposedly "close" districts
In the State* mentioned, and would at any rat*
(MM provided creature comforts for a great many
of the Tamzn&nyltes and their friends In the com

been changed, but the contributors to the fund
would have been out the amount of their subscrip
tion*.
"If Jui^e Parker had not 'fallen down' a number
of my Democratic friends would be considerably
poorer to-day." said a prominent Democrat to-day.
"I learned, on the day before the President pub
lished his reply to the Parker charges, that a num
ber of my fool friends over In New-York wore to
put up a big "bunch' of money to help out Parker
nt the last minute. 1 call thorn "fool friends not
because they are not well balanced ordinarily, but
because their political judgment l.« bad. As soon
aa I learned of the plan. 1 called up one or two of
them by the long- distance telephone and arranged
for a meeting— hurried to New-York. The
meeting was held, and. counting myself, there were
sixteen present. The judge's Brooklyn speech had
been delivered in the mean time. I made my repre
sentations and gave them the beet advice I could
In the premises, arguing that they were certain to
spend it uselessly. In the discussion that followed
my arguments were reinforced by a member of the
syndicate who had become disgusted with Parker
over his failure to 'make good.' To make a long
story 6hert they gave up their idea of contributing
to the fund ana triers was no fund. They decided
that a man who would make such wild statements
us he had made, and could not produce the proof
to substantiate them, was not a safe man to have

SOUTH WANTS PRESIDENT
Talk of Senator Bailey as Next
Democratic Candidate.
frp.OU THE TRIBVNE Bt'RKAr.3
Washington, Nov. 11.— One significant result
of the overwhelming defeat suffered by the De
mocracy Is the demand of the South for rep
resentation on the national ticket in the future.
Only that section of the country, 1t Is said, can
be depended on for unswerving and unquestion
fn#; support of the Democratic national ticket,
and It is also asserted that the defection of Mis
court this fall could have been averted had a
Foutherner been the nominee for President.
"With a vote of 151 in the Electoral College.
ISouthern politicians believe that the Democrats
should name one of their number as their stand
ard bearer in 1908. This feeling was much in
•vidence in New- York City in the clGsing days
of the campaign. Prominent Democrats in pri
vate conversation discussed with earnestness the
availability of Senator Bailey, of Texas, as the
next Democratic candidate for President, de
claring that the time would then be ripe for the
Bouth to assert itself.
Representative Hay, of Virginia, one of the
democratic leaders of the House, to-day gave
expression to the feeling now prevailing among
Southern Democrats.
"I think the time has come," he said, "for the
Bouth to rise in its might and refuse longer to
follow the dictates of the Northern Democracy.
Jf two Southern men had been nominated at St.
J.ouis the result cojld not have been worse. In
fact, I believe that Missouri and Maryland
vould have been found in the Democratic col
umn instead of boosting the Republican major
ity. lam in favor of a Southern man for Pres
ident in 1908. and I believe that every Southern
Ftete wili demand this recognition when the
time comes to nominate a standard bearer four
y«ars from now. The question of availability
ahould rule no longer."

MISSOURI SENATORSHIP.
Secretary Hitchcock Said to head in
Mace for CodkreW* Seat.
fFROM THE TBSnrJTB BUREAU. 1
YTashington, Nov. 11.— The tremendous upheaval
In Miasouri politics caused by the Roosevelt land
slide carries with It the retirement of Francis M.
Cockrell from the United States Senate and the
selection this winter by the legislature of that
Btat« of a Republican successor.
While no authoritative announcement can be
made regarding the intention of Mr. Hitchcock.
the lasketafy ot the Interior, to remain in the
CaUasti v is known that his friends In Missouri
aro yulrt;y at work In the interests of his can
didacy for the Senate. Whether they are pro
reeding on their own responsibility or with the
approval ana under the direction of Secretary
Hitchcock, has not developed, but there can be no
doubt of the earnestness of his friends In hi 3 behalf
or of their confidence in their ability to secure the
nomination for their candidate. Secretary Hitch
cock, who has juat returned from St. Liouls, will
accompany the President on his visit to the ex
position, aad it Is possible that something definite
may then bo made public.
Many Republicans hold that the logical candidate
for the Senate from Missouri is Cyrus P. "Wal
lirfdga beeauoe of tils acceptance of the nomina
tion for Governor, and his splendid uphill fight
against Folk, whose ©lotion was considered as
certain as tße dawn of Election Day. Walbrldge
was beaten, as he expected to be. but his defeat
not only strengthened him with the Republicans
of the State, but solidified the party, so 'long rent
with factional strife and bitterness.
Thomas K. Nledringhaus. chairman of the Repub
lican State Committee, an aggressive fighter, a good
organizer and a true blue Republican, to whose
well directed efforts the Buccesa of the national and
legislative tickets in Missouri this fall may be
largely ascribed, is also favorably mentioned as a
possible successor of Senator Cockrell. It Is de
clared here, however, by prominent Mipsourians
who are thoroughly in touch with ths political situ
ation in that State, that Secretary Hitchcock Is now
In the lead, and that in the friendly rivalry likely
to develop in the contest he will forge to the front
arid eventually land the prize.
When nereonal enmity and factional bitterness
were subordinated to party unity, the Republican
party resumed Its place as a live antagonist to the
Democracy of Missouri. This condition, together
with the great popularity of President Roosevelt,
caused the prediction to be made in these dis
patches of August 29 that Missouri's electoral vote
would be found in the ftepubitcßn column this fall.
It was a-lso shown in that dispatch that success
was assured because of the disaffection in the Dem
ocratic ranks: the bitter feeling of the machine or
"boodle" Democrats against Folk for his relentless
prosecution and subsequent conviction of many of
their number; the Immigration Into Missouri from
lowa and other Republican strongholds of many
voters who would be Influenced by former political
conditions; the existence of forty thousand first
voters, of whom the Republicans would secure a
large proportion, and Democratic emigration from
Missouri to Oklahoma and other Territories and
States.
Genuine regret Is felt here, regardless of party
affiliations, over the prospective retirement of Sen
ator Cockrell. In point of continuous service he is
second only to Senator Allison, whose record ex
ceeds that of the Miasourian by two years. Mr.
Cockrell hae served in the Senate thirty years, and
is regarded In Washington as a legislative land
mark. His political passing is regarded as a dis
tinct loss to his State, to tho Senate and to the
nation. The members of the majority in the upper
House will cordially greet a Republican Senator
from the former rock-ribbed Democratic State of
Missouri, but. that welcome will be tempered by the
feeling ot distinct personal loss sustained through
Mr. Cockrell's retirement.
MR. DOUGLAS'S ELECTION.
Still Surjyrises Bay State—-Presi
dential Boom Started.
FBT lEtMBAPH TO THE TRIBUNE. I
Boston, Nov. 11. — The State of Massachusetts
has not yet recovered from the surprise occa
sioned by the election of William 1,. Douglas,
the Democratic candidate for Governor. The
newspapers are still discussing It, carrying first
page articles three days after the election. "Tho
Heraid" to-day came out with a boom for Mr.
Douglas as the next Democratic candidate for
President, naming Joseph W. Folk for the sec
ond place on the ticket for 1908.
A dispatch from St. Louis bore out this idea,
JSx-Congreerman Vandiver, who headed the
Folk campaign, was quoted as saying that Mr.
Douglas's amazing victory on a platform prac
tically ignored, if not scorned, by the Demo
cratic National Committee, brought him almost
to equal prominence with Mr. Folk. The elec
tion of one was regarded equally as remarkable
as the election of the other.
At Brockton, Mr. Douglas's home, this Presi
dential boom is naturally considered with favor.
Mr. Douglas to-day said:
"I have heard nothing of any movement of
this character, and I do not care to make any
statement upon such a plsin. I do not care to
get mixed up In national politics at all."
Many of hie Brockton townsmen assert that
Mr. Douglas could carry the country as ho car
ried Massachusetts. Tne causes for Mr. Doug
lass election are still a matter of discussion.
The successful candidate himself declares that
his election means the first gun in a battle for
reciprocity and tariff relief. It seems to be
generally held here that Governor Bates's de
feat was due In a large measure to his veto of
tho "overtime" bill, his appointment of Judge
\V. H. H. Emmons as chairman of the Boston
Police Commission, who proved unpopular; to
the veto of the Veterans' Bounty bill, and to
Mr. Douglas's popularity with the working- peo
ple.
"The Boston Transcript" deplores Governor
Kates's defeat, and lays it to his betrayal by,
the last two legislatures. It says editorially
that, it was often said last winter that svu% and
such a bill was Intended "to put Bntes In a
hole." Mr. Douglas's election, la spite of all
this, however, remains one of the greatest sur
prises in Massachusetts politic*.

BRYAN NOT COMING.
SO SAYS DR. GIRDER.
Watson Already Here—Palliser'a
Reorganisation Outlook.
Although Thomas E. Watson arrived in town
last evening there were indications that the
plan to hold a Bryan-Watson-Hearst confer
ence for the organization of a now -radical"
Democratic ptftV "111 full through because of
Mr. Bryant mffsi p*Nss*l intention not to
come Kast.
Dr. John H. Girdner, a personal friend of
Bryan, and his representative in the East, has
no knowledge of any intention on the part of
Mr. Bryan to come East in the near future.
"While I don't wish to be quoted ns speaking
for Mr. Bryan, in any sense of the term," Dr.
Girdner told a Tribune reporter last night. "I
don't think Mr. Bryan will be here in the near
future. Why should he? It la too early yet to
discuss Democratic platforms and candidates
for 1908. Tuesday's battle smoke must first
clear away."
Asked whether Bryan still believed in the in
sertion of a free silver plank In tho Democratic
platform. Dr. Girdner eaid:
"Mr. Bryan believes in bimetallism to the
roots of his hair. The Democratic radicals will
never stand for a gold platform. Owingr, how
ever, to the relief afforded by new finds of gold
and new methods of extraction, the silver ques
tion is not now so acute."
Asked as to what he considered should be
among the principal planks ir. the' Democratic*
platform for 1908. Dr. Girdner said:
"In my opinion, a revision of th© tariff; State
ownership; parcels post; Senators by direct vote
of the people with referendum and recall clauses;
the income tax and taxation on land values,
and one or two others."
Mr. Watson, who arrived with his family,
went to the Kensington. He said that he had
nothing to say about the election. He was to
have a conference with several men last night.
Who they were he would not say. He will give
out a statement this morning.
"In seeking to reorganize the Democratic party
for the Presidential campaign of 1908," said
Melvin G. Palliser yesterday to a Tribune re
porter, "the leaders must necessarily proceed
on the theory that President Roosevelt and other
leaders of the Republican party intend to stand
pat on the protective tariff aa a promoter of
prosperity, and allow the trusts to go on gain
ing power unchecked. The only hope of the
Democracy, apparently, is in making the party
so radical as to attract the votes of the Socialist
Rarty and the followers of Mr. Watson.
' "This does not mean that Mr. Watson would
be the candidate four years from now. Ido not
believe Mr. Watson expects that. It might
mean that either Mr. Bryaii or Mr. Hearst would
be the candidate, or that some other man will
gain a prominence entitling him to consideration
when the time comes to make a nomination.

Massachusetts or Governor Folk of Missouri.
"If President Roosevelt should be able to
force his party or lead it to effective action
against the trusts, thus making it a party of
radical reform, as it was in the beginning of its
career it is probable that the conservatives in
the Democratic party would again be in control
in 1908 Ido not believe that the Republican
party can be taken out of the control of the
trusts, even if Mr. Roosevelt, with all the power
and prestige he has obtained in this election,
should attempt it.
"The Senate never could be moved to take
away the special privileges from the trusts,

that th« general principle of the meeting t» ac
ceptable although It will take some time to con
sider what questions shall hi brought up. For
eign Minister Delcass£*s conference with Am
bassador Porter allowed that the N Minister was
most sympathetic In regard to tho proposition,
which he considered to be In the line of France's
policy.
The "Temps" says Ambassador Porter pointed
out to M. Delcaase. that If objection were made
to another meeting of the peace conference at
The Hague on the ground that It might exert
Influence on the present war, it should be re
membered that Russia issued the call for the
first flmi meeting at the time of thf Spanish-
American War.
Copenhagen, Nov. 31.— The Danish govern
ment -will accept President Roo*nveU's invita
tion to take part In a second peace conference
The government considers that it Is particularly
desirable that a clearer International agree
ment be formulated regarding neutrality and
contraband leg illations.
Negotiations for a treaty of arbitration be
tween the United States ana Denmark have been
opened. The Danish government. It is declared,
is glad of th» opportunity to enter Into such a
treaty.
HOPES OF PEACE FEW EN.
France Xot Desirous of Endanger
ing Alliance with Russia.
St. Petersburg, Nov. 11. — It Is considered sig
nificant that the Russian newspapers Ignore
Lord Lansdowne's suggestion regarding Russo-
Japanese arbitration. They appear to be more
concerned with his utterances on the subject
of the punishment of the Russian naval officers
concerned In the North Sea Incident, Baying it
will be time enough to talk of punishment when
the commission establishes their culpability.
Referring to Lord Lansdowne's arbitration
suggestion, a prominent official of the Foreign
Office expressed the. opinion that such an offer.
even coming from Japan, could not possibly be
accepted. He said:
Such a controversy cannot be arbitrated. The
i<?ea is not worth considering. We believe
the war has reached the turn of the tide and it
must go on. The only possibility of peace now,
in my opinion, would be on the basis of a
proposition submitted to Russia by Japan offer
ing to accept less than she demanded before
hostilities were opened. As it la Inconceivable
that Japan at this juncture is prepared to
offer such terms I see no chance of ending tfie
war.
Par.ls dispatches published here say that the
French government expressly excluded the in
tention of intervening when it proposed lta good
offices for the settlement of the North Sea dis
pute.
Paris. Nov. 11.— The officials here profess to
be unaware of the reported joint mediation
movement in Great Britain, France and the
United States. It is pointed out that the main
features of the situation are these:
Japan is evidently weary of the war and de
sirous of re-establishing peace. Japan naturally
looks to Great Britain and the United States to
assist in obtaining a cessation of hostilities.
France, as the ally of Russia, has no influence
with Japan, but has influence at St. Petersburg,
whereas Great Britain and the United States do
not exert strong influence at the Russian cap
ital. Therefore, France's only activity In such a
Joint effort would be at St. Petersburg. This
involves. howe\er. important considerations re
lating to Russia's relations with European
powers. France does not desire to exert in
fluence on Russia which would be distasteful to
her or tend to weaken the alliance. Some of the
reports of France's intention to influence Rus
sia are attributed to certain European political
quarters which are seeking to break the Franco-
Russian alliance In order to profit thereby to
France's detriment.
France will use, therefore, the utmost circum
spection concerning any Joint movement wherein
her part will be solely to influence Russia In a
manner which Russia does not regard as con
trary to her Interests.
Several newspapers print categorical denials
of the statement of Sir Thomas Barclay that M.
Cambon, the French Ambassador in London,
after conferring with Lord Lansdowne came ro
Paris to discuss Anglo-Frenoh mediation. The
officials also say that Sir Thomas's statement is
purely speculative.
London, Nov. 11.— The dispatch from Wash
ington confirming the statement made in these
dispatches that Japan had indicated her willing
ness to entertain peace suggestions from. Presi
dent Roosevelt or King Edward created much.
Interest her*». ISaron Hayashi. the Japanese
Minister, said to-day:
After the fall of Port Arthur Japan would. I
believe, be ready to treat for peace on no higher
essential basis than that Russia should evacuate
Manchuria. Japan also agreeing to a similar
evacuation. The two great difficulties In the
way of any suggestion of peare are. first, the
apparent opposition of Emperor Nicholas's pres
ent advisers to a settlement of any kind; second.
the preservation of Russian prestige. When a
nation's prestige is severely impaired, it is a
difficult matter, even with the beat of intentions,
to preserve it.
The Associated Pr»ss learns that Queen Alex
andra has been in constant communication with
the Empress Dowager of Russia, and Emperor
Nicholas himself, in the last few days. This Is
interpreted here as a hopeful sign, and as possi
bly likely to lead, though not in the immediate
future, to th>-> establishment of sum* modus
Vivendi whereby steps looking to arbitration
might be started without offence to Russia.
The reiteration of the American State Depart
ment's determination not to Intervene, except on
requests from both of the belligerents, tallies
with the official attitude of the British govern
ment, but it is thought that before long niM
method may privately he devised whereby thla
diplomatic barrier to action will be overcome.
Baron Hayashi this morning had no news from
Port Arthur, and discredited th*> rumors of lta
capitulation.

BABUSHKA ARRIVES \\[M
XOTED WOMAN SOCIALIST.
Russian Says Defeat Will Be Be*>
for Her Country.
The Russian quarter or the East Side was
aroused yesterday when word was passe, i
around that "Babushka" had escaped the Hut
sian police, who were trying to prevent her de
parture from Russia and actually had arrived n
New-York. As every Russian socialist knows.
"Babushka" is "Grandma " Breschkovsky. a for
mer Siberian exile, who, since her release, has
organized and become one of the most actlv»
leaders of the socialist revolutionary party.
Few Russian women have had a more exdtbiff
life, and there is no one. bo local Russian so
cialists say. who has a greater hold on the revo
lutionary blood of the country.
It was a woman of sixty-one year*, whit
haired, but of singularly youthful countenance,
whom 1 Tribune reporter found last right at
No. 280 East Broad way.
According to her story, she was born of a
noble family in Chernigolf. in Southern Russia.
Her father was .1 Liberal, but even his views
were not sufficiently pronounced for the daugh
ter. She began to attend revolutionary meet
ings when under twenty, and soon became a
leader. In 1574 she was among the many hun
dred arrested In th* attempted uprising after
the liberation of the serfs. She was on» of
those sentenced to Siberia in what 1* known
among Russians as the "trial of the hundred
and ninety-three." She was sentenced to strr*
eight years at hard labor at Irkutsk, one of th*
outermost posts in Siberia. Aft«»r fl^r. years «h*
escaped, but on being- recaptured a number of
years were added to her sentence. She finally
was sent home from Siberia after s-rrtrt? twen
ty-two years.
She spent three months in retirement, and
then began a new revolutionary effort. H»r
personal organ Is "Revolutionary Russia."
which is printed near the Russian border and
smuggled through the mails to Russian read
ers. Mmo. Breschkovsky declared that she had
come to America to justify the socialistic Rus
sian faction In the eyes of the world.
""We do not ask," she declared In French, "as
much as you have in America. All we> want Ii
what Germany already has. Your freedom.
complete and absolute, would be too radical a
change for Russia. Many of your people look
upon us as murderers and assassins. We are
not that. If violence is sometimes use It is be
cause It is the only method that can possibly
prevail in restricted Russia."
"How about the assassination of Yon Plehve,
the Russian Minister of the Interior?" was
asked.
"That was brought about by the fighting group
of my party." she declared quite frankly. "It
was necessary. We have no free speech or free
press. Why, If any one was caught with a copy
of our paper he would be sent to Siberia."
In discussing the Russto-Japanes« war th»
former exile said:
"This war was called by a few royal ad
venturers. The people of Russia do not sym
pathize with it. and think that it is unneces
sary. We are sorry for the sacrifice of Russian
lives, but we feel that defeat will teach Russia
a lesson. If It was a war of the people, instead
of a government war. we have not a doubt but
that Russia would be victorious."
After speaking In New- York Mme. Bresch
kovsky will go to Boston, where her cause will
be aided by a society known as the American
Friends of Russian Freedom.
