CHICAGO. June IS. The advance
guard of the delegations to the Re
publican National convention has
arrived, In Chicago, and the greater
number of delegates ure expected to
oome tomorrow and on Monday morn

Interfered sadly with the political
game, as nearly all the members of
the National committee and a great
number of delegates deserted their
headquarters to visit Washington park.
So many of them attended the races
thit the down-town hotels, where tho
crowd will be the greatest when the
convention Is In full blast, wero about
as quiet as on days when there Is
nothing particular In view.
Will Lack Excitement.
From all tho advance Indications the
convention promises to lack something
of the excitement of other gatherings
of its kind. The chiof Interest so far
centers In the Vice-Presidential nomi
nation. The opposition against Secre
tary Cortelyou for chairman of the
National committee seems to be dying
somewhat, and various members of the
National committee predicted today
that he would be elected without op
position. The fight against him, they
declare, is not strong enough to make
Want Fairbanks to Talk.
The attitude of Senator Fairbanks
regarding the nomination for Vice
President Is not pleasing to many of
the arriving delegates, who say that he
should declare himself more explicit
ly. The great majority of the delegates
who have so far arrived favor him or
are not actively opposed to him, but
they desire a statement of some- kind.
Will Not Present His Name.
Congressman James A. Hemenway of
Indiana, who Is a close friend of Sen
ator Fairbanks, said this morning- that
the Senator would not make a state
ment of any kind; that he would ac
cept the nomination if It Is presented
to him, but that ho will not declare
that he wants It, When asked If In
diana would present the name of the
Senator when nominations for the place
were called for, he said that It would
not, and he did not know whether any
other State would do so.

The delegates of the New York dele

made It evident that the Empire State

to be the temporary chairman of the
convention, was the first of the promi
nent New Yorkers to put In an appear
ance. "There Is a strong Hltt senti

"and we arc of the opinion that he will
make a strong candidate. The fact
that Senator Fairbanks has expressed
no wish for the place has served to
aid the candidacy of Mr. Hltt."

Mrs. Mary E. Chapman
Runaway Gravl Car Crashes
Into Passenger on Sec
All Jump to Ground Safely but El-
derly Woman, Who Sustains Dis
location of Shoulder.
RUSHING through a crowded
street at almost lightning ex
press speed, a street car was
urged forward by a runaway
gravel car, while hanging to one of tho
seats of the passenger cur was an el
derly woman, the only passenger,
frightened to the point of collapse and
screaming wildly for the help which
could not be rendered her. This was
the thrilling sight which met the eyes
of hundreds of persons on Second South
street, in the busiest part of the city,
about 9:15 o'clock yesterday morning.
Gathering increased momentum with
every rod traversed on the down grade
toward the Rio Grande depot the run
away cars swept on, the startled on
lookers expecting every monfent to wit
ness a colllslonwlth teams, pedestrians
or other cars, or to see the runaways
jump tho track with awful results In
the taking of human life. But the cars
ran over switches as though guided by
an unseen hand. Finally the woman
passenger waa seen to make her way
cautiously toward the footboard of the
car on which she rode, then to prepare
herself for the lenp which might mean
death. It was with her a choice of ter
rible chances with the grim reaper, for
a smashup was Inevitable at the end of
the ride. Mustering up all her courage,
the woman Jumped from the car and
was rolled many feet on the pavement.
She was picked up and carried into a
nearby building, where medical a;end
anco was quickly summoned. It was
found that aside from the terrible
shock her only Injury was a dislocated
shoulder. She waa later removed to
the Holy Cross hospital, where It was
reported last night that she was resting
easily, with every probability of speedy
Mrs. Chapman tho "Victim.
The woman who passed through tho
trying ordeal Is Mrs. Mary E. Chap
man, 57 years old, widow of John Chap
man, who lives with her daughter at
83S East Second South street. 4
Mrs. Chapman had been down town
yesterday morning on a shopping ex
pedition, aud had taken car No. 122 at
Second South and Main streets to go to
her home. When this car reached State
streets on Its outward trip the motor
man, A. H. Burt, saw a cloud of dust
coming down the Second South street
line, which to his trained eye quickly
resolved Itself into a flat car bearing
down upon him at terrific speed.
"Reverse the power," said the con
ducor, when he, too, realized what was
With that the conductor, Duncan Mc
Donald, swung his trolley around to
what had been the front end of the car,
at the same tlmo calling out, "All pas
Only Other Passenger.
The only passengers on the car at the
time were Mrs. Chapman and a young
man named Archie Cameron, living at
132 H street, and neither of them real
ized, It seems, what was meant by the
action of the carmen. Both were still
on the car when the electric current
had been reversed and the motorman
had started on a nice with the runaway
flat car. which was approaching from
behind at a high rate of speed. The
Houng man wasthe' first to sense the
danger which threatened them, and the
car had proceeded only a few rods In
the direction of Main street when 'r.e
jumped and escaped without Injury. In
the meantime both Cameron and the
conductor tried In vain to Induce Mrs.
Chapman to Jump from the car, whose
speed wns so rapidly increasing. The
conductor and motorman stayed with
their car until the runaway flat car had
overtaken them, and Just about the
time the collision came they, too,
leaped for their lives, leaving tho wo
man alone in the race with death.
When the Cars Crashed.
There was a heavy Jar when the two
cars came together, about opposite tho
Wilson hotel, but neither left the rails.
The passenger car was shunted ahead
at still great Bpeed, and as the two
careened down Second South like things
of life the runaway would at short In
tervals overtake the car ahead and
send It forward with a hard jolt.
How the head car ever stuck to the
rails In speeding over the networks of
crossings at Main strect-nrnd West
Temple, and finally In crossing the
Short Line track op Third We6t street,
is a mystery to all railroad men. It Is
also considered a miracle that thero
wero no other cars on the same track
i until the terminus was reached.
I At Fifth West and Second South car
No. 112, in charge of Conductor T. W.
Palmer andl Motorman Orson Bills, was
waiting in the switch for passengers
from a Rio Grande train.
Cars Strike Switch.
They yaw the runaways approaching
and left their car. When the runaways
struck the switch the paswnger car shot
across the north track and brought up
at the etreet curb, but slightly dam
aged. But the flat car ran Into the
switch and brought up against car Np.
112 and Us trailer, both of which were
During the time that the cars were
racing down the streets hundreds of
men rushed after them, and pome of the
more daring ones made futile attempts
to board the runaways. When Mrs.
Chapman leaped from the car crlos of
horror arose, for It was thought she
must be dead. She was carried Into the
Hendertxm building at Third West
street by A. C. Topping, who was first
j to reach her, aided by soveral olerks in
' 4ha Llldlntfr JThoy cared, for- her. ea ;
tenderly as possible and put In call9 for
Gcvcral phyolclans. Dr. Rlchardy. the
company Burgeon; Dr. C. M. Benedict
and Dr. A. S. Bower responded. Tho
police department was alro notified and
the patrol wagon, with Driver William
Armstrong, Capt. Burbldge, SergL Ed
dington and several patrolmen were
coon on tho scene. The services of the
officers were needed to keep oack the
crowds which would have surged Into
the room where the injured woman lay.
How tho Car Broke A-way,
The runaway flat car wao one of two
cars loaded with gravel which were be
ing backed down the hill In front of a
motor car In charge of Motorman J. M.
Jonci'. an old-time street railway man
from St. Louis, who has been In the em
ploy of the Utah Light and Railway
company about three years. In going
over the crossing at Eighth East street
tho car next to tho motor was in some
manner derailed, presumably by a rock
falling from the gravel with which it
was- loaded to the track. The derailing
of this car resulted In the pulling of the
drawhead which connected the two cars,
turning the one in front loose on Its
wild Journey of destruction.
Motorman Jones Immediately
switched his motor car to the opposite
track and sped after the runaway, hlo
Intention having been to overtake It and
derail it if possible by throwing In front
of it a loose tie or some such obstacle.
He was prevented In carrying out this
design, h6wever, by overtaking other
cars on the down track used by out
Blames No One.
It was said last night by Superinten
dent of Construction A. Bong that
tho accident was due neither to any
negligence on the part of Motorman
Jones nor to any Imperfection of the
car equipment The gravel cars were
moving slowly at the tlmo of the de
railment, which caused the trouble, and
the only way. In which It can be ac
counted for Is that a small rock fell on
the track In junt the right way to throw
the car from the rails. It was such an
accident, Mr. Bong said, as could hardly
be guarded against, and which was like
ly never to happen In the same way
again. He sala, however, that In the
future a safety chain would be used on
tho couplings of gravel cars. In addi
tion to the drawbar, as an extra precau
tion. One prominent street car man ex
pressed the opinion that had tho motor
man of the car on which Mrs. Chapman
rode stuck to Oils car he could have
averted the most serious part of the ac
cident. After the cars came together,
ho said, It would have been nn easy
matter to have gradually slackened the
speed until both could have been
stopped without damage. He admitted,
however, that this could not havo well
been foresaen; that It was natural to
prcsnmo that car 122 would be thrown
from the track when the collision
occurred, rendering it of no use for the
motorman to stay with It. "It Is easier
to tell afterward what should have been
done," said he, "than It la to do It when
laboring under the stress of excitement
of nich a moment."
The New Ireland.
In his book, "Ireland In the Now
Century," Sir Horace Plunkett tells the
story of the movement which Is revolu
What Is this "new Ireland" of which
for the past few years we have heard
so much? What has brought It Into
being and wherein does It differ from
the old Ireland? Sir Horace leads off
with the statement that within the last
decade there has been a decisive
change In the English nttltude toward
Ireland and a profound revolution In
the thoughts of Ireland about .herself.
The defeat of tho home-rule, bills, and
especially the fall of Parnell, turned
the country upon Itself, removed from
Its mind the obsession of politics, and
diverted its thoughts toward the Imme
diately practicable. Irishmen, or some
of them, at any rate, came to realize
that great as was the responsibility of
England for the stnte of Ireland, the re
sponsibility of Irishmen was greater
still. This was Sir Horace's own atti
tude. He made not the slightest effort
to gloss over the ravages of English
tyranny and English stupidity; he ad
mitted fully the results of centuries of
misunderstanding, of the penal laws,
commercial restrictions, the land sys
tem, and so on; he saw It was natural
that Irishmen should think that what
legislation had done legislation, und leg
islation alone, could undo, and that un
Injury Inflicted from without could only
be healed from without. Buthe asked
himself whether all this, while natural
dnd to some extent Inevitable, was also
wlso; whether Irish reliance on legisla
tion for the cure of economla Ills had
not sapped the ' national virility;
whether It was not possible, Instead of
always complaining about their state,
to do something to mend It; whether
the habit of living In the past did not
result In a present without achievement
and a future without hope. In his
opinion Anglo-Irish history was for
Englishmen to remember, for Irishmen
to forget. As he saw it, the Irish prob
lem at bottom was not a racial, politi
cal, economic, or religious problem, but
a human problem, a problem of the
Irish mind and character. Sydney
Brooks In Harper's Weekly.
Japanese Women in the. War.
With all social barriers' down, hand In
hand and heart to heart, the millions of
Japan are working for one common end
the crushing defeat of Russia and the
gloryt of their country in victory.
The practical, every-day side of the
situation divested of possibly fine-spun
theories, la that the wealthy and aristo
cratic men and women ar? working with
the humbler classes to organize relief
and aid societies.
The oldest and best known ot these is
the National Red Cross Society, founded
In 18S7 by the Government, and presided
over by his Imperial Highness, Prince
Komatsu, until hl9 death a year ago.
The present president Is his Imperial
Highness, Prince Kanln. The organiza
tion Is supported by the subscriptions of
the memberp, who number between one
and two millions; it has, at the present
time, a large reserve fund of between
three and four million dollars gold.
The Red Cross Society hns a branch
or auxiliary known as the Ladles' Vol
unteer Nursing association, which was
established shortly after the parent so
ciety. An Interesting fact Is that all the
Princesses of royal blood are enlisted
among Its members and practically nil
the ladles of the nobility. Marchioness
Nabeshlma is the president and. man
ager of the foclcty. There are- 400 wo
men In Toklo alone, who are both con
tributing members and actual workers,
and tho association has branches all'
over the empire. Including the i&landi of
Formosa. William Dinwiddle, Special
Correspondent. In Harper's Weekly.
