Clash Among Students.
VIKNNA, November 4.?A racial demon
stration took place here today between stu
dents of the university, a few stones and.
sticks being used. Otherwise tbe day
passed off without serious consequences.
The affair arose from the German-speaking;
Austrian students, who are adherents of
Pan-Germanism, singing the "Wacht Am
Rhein," cheering for German Ideals and
ordering the Slav and Italian students to
uncover in honor of the "WachtAm Rheln."
The latter refused, whereupon the Ger
mans charged and ousted the Slavs and
Italians from the university precincts. This
Incident is Indicative of the political unr
rest, of which the near future is Uabl? to

whose lecture before th$ convention of the

said, was so appreciated that the Idea of
presenting through her a medal to the
Washington schools arose, Mr. Oud? said:
"As president of the Florists' Club of

WOMEN'S STYLES FOB 1905 BE
COMING AND IN GOOD FORM.
"The new fall styles of ladies' hats which
transfix our admiring glances and warm
our hard masculine hearts to soft tender
ness are certainly most fetching, and are a
radical reversal of form from Jast season's
feminine head adornment," remarked a
well-known Washington beau and authority
on ladies' apparel today on F street where
he stood watching the lovely dreams of the
capital In tailor-made gowns float airily
by. "It takes a woman's natural Ingenu
ity," continued the beau, "to construct of a
piece of felt, a few touches of ribbon and
here and there a feather, a rakish and be
coming headpiece. The new style this sea
son resembles, to our Ignorant but reminis
cent eyes. In almost exact detail of outline,
the old-fashioned crimped coal scuttle,
only inverted, with the corrugated ends up,
and the scoop point very high and worn for
"But there is a well-deflned principle of
fashion In this, don't you see. The angles,
pitches, corrugations and catchy twists ex
emplify one of the cardinal edicts of style
contrast. They are the antithises of the
once universally worn big flat hat. The big
flat hat In its various modifications, pro
jecting far, and in some of the extreme ef
fects, very far, In front, was one of the
most enticing, popular and lasting styles
the ladles had in years. The level poke out
In front was becoming to eight women out
of ten; that's why it endured so long. In
the new styles the angles are oblique and
up from the face and head. A great many
women, however, do not look well In a hat
that goes up from the face.
Day of Polo Turban Past.
"Happily, the little polo hat, or the dimin
utive round collar box that appeared so
suddenly upon the streets, and startled the
poor men out of a year's growth, died an
un regret ted death. Our fair friends have
tempted us with many wonderful and fierce
shapes in hats, which we have accepted
with resignation and trepidation, but the
little round collar box was one of the most
unbecoming. It expired naturally because
not one woman in twenty appeared well
In one. When a misguided lady of extra
ample proportions with a full face, abun
dant chin and neck came along on the
north side of F street with one of those lit
tle collar boxes perched on her head dis
criminating men considerately turned away
their heads and wept in silent pity. But
this season's styles are veritable dreams of
loveliness. I attribute as one reason for
their catchy and rakish appearance the
angles in which they are worn, and to their
radical metamorphosis in shape to former
molds. If a pretty woman can get one
of the new hats in the right pitch It makes
her thrice bewitching; the plain woman's
angularities are softened. In masculine
parlance, they are simply stunning.
"One reason why some women wear such
unbecoming hats, aside from lack of Indi
vidual taste, is because they listen too at
tentively to the advice of the obliging sales
woman. As a rule, while the latter is pro
fessionally sincere in her criticism, the fact
remains that her principal object is to effect
a sale. Ladles' facial delineations are so
different that the pitch or angle of a hat
makes all the difference in the world In a
woman's appearance. A woman friend Is a
better adviser, unless she is a jealous
friend, but a male friend is still bet
ter, If he can be coaxed or cajoled into the
"Some men are most happy in their de
cisions as to the general offect of a lady's
hat, and nearly all can tell in that peculiar,
indefinable way of theii s whether the head
gear is becoming to the. wearer, even
though they lack the ability to explain Just
why It strikes their fancy. Any lady thus
favored may feel quite sure that her new
hat really becomes her. Another tiling
about ladies' hat's- from a man's standpoint
13 that of all other articles they wear a
woman Is the most touchy about her hat.
8he will forgive a slighting allusion as to
her hair or her gown, but brave Indeed is
the miserable man who unhappily touches
upon the theme of hats to his dear one, ex
cept in praise. An adverse criticism of the
new hat seems to go straight to a woman's
heart, and danger signals are sprung from
the first word. Perhaps this is one reason
why men don't like 'to go alone* when the
purchase of a new hat Is In prospect."

A VERT HOT FIGHT
PENNSYLVANIA POLITICS IN A
Spec'al Correspondence of Tbe Star.
PHILADELPHIA, Pa . November 4, 1908.
Philadelphia la on the verge of the hotteet
political fight in its history. In spite of the
roseate claims of the republican organiza
tion, which has been termed by Secrotary
Root "a corrupt and criminal combination
masquerading as republicans," who place
their majority at from 40,000 to 50,000, and
the equally rosy counter-claim of the de
votees of civic reform of from 60,000 to
100,000 majority, it is an open secret among
leaders of both parties that the fight Is to
be the closest combat of ballots ever record
ed In the Quaker City.
Much bitterness Is rife. Libel suits have
grown out of stump emanations, the police
are divided, ani it Is freely predicted that
election day will be marked with more than
a single Instance of bloodshed.
The forecasts quoted were announced this
morning, but If the relative merits of the
Issues of 'both sides are considered, the
prognostication of the city party, which has
been Indorsed by the democrats, prohibi
tionists, independents and Lincolns, de
serves the greater credence.
In all there are nine tickets in the field.
With the exception of tha citizens' party, a
decoy name filed by the organization, the
republicans stand alone. The socialist and
socialist labor also stand alone. The city
party is indorsed by the remainder as men
The only candidates who are belnir con
sidered in the campaign are those of the
republican and the city parties. The former
ticket presents Dr. Joseph S. Neff for
sheriff, Thomas Dugan, present coroner, re
nominated for the same office; William Em
sley and Howard A. Chase for county com
Of these Dugan Is the most popular, and
the organization depends on hlm> entirely
for the salvation of the remainder of the
The nominees of the city party are Wil
liam H. Brown for sheriff, Rudolph Blank
enburg and R. A. Anderson for city com
missioners and J. M. Rush Jermon for cor
oner. Blankenburg Is the most popular
man on the ticket, having been a consistent
agitator against machine rule and political
corruption for the past twenty-five years.
He Is a man of Irreproachable character, a
mlllonalre, and commands the respect of
all classes. Each of the nominees Is strong

Issues, Not Men.
But the fight Is distinctively one of issues
and not of men. On Philadelphia are now
centered the eyes of the country. The peo
ple of this city realize it. The strife for
civic betterment has received the Indirect
approbation of President Roosevelt through
Charles Emory Smith and Jacob Rlls, who
declare that were he a resident of Philadel
phia he would vote the city party ticket.
Secretary Taft, too. In a speech anent
ring-ridden Cincinnati, has stamped It with
his approval, and the enormity of the ex
posures which have followed one after an
other since the Inception of the fight, each
one exceeding Its predecessor In noisome
and malodorous detail, has inspired the fear
of almost certain defeat In machine cir
Beginning with the organization's attempt

The sensational aspects attendant upon
the failure of the Enterprise National Bank
of Allegheny and the suicide of Its cashier,
who left a note to his wife declaring that
he had been ruined by "Bull" Andrews, who
is so closely identified with Philadelphia
politics, and the discovery that United
States Senator Boies Penrose was, in some
way, Implicated In the bank's downfall, de
spite his profane denial of the day after,
has had Its local effect. The startling
charges of graft made in the report of
Maj. Casslus E. Gillette of Washington,
who investigated the Torresdale filtration
plant, as built by D. J. McNlchol & Co.,
the company Including Israel W. Durham
and James P. McNlchol, the former the
machine leader of Philadelphia and the lat
ter second in command?the latest expose?
has created a feeling of general revulsion
past all adequate estimate.
Graft, Graft, Graft.
In every line the report breathes graft,
graft, graft. Its conclusion Is "attempted
steal, 19.000.000; accomplished steal, $6,000,
000." An overpowering array of facts and
figures substantiate that conclusion, and
Its disclosures spell the ruin of one man,
George C. Deitrlch, who, driven to des
peration. deserted his Skme and family In
a state bordering on Insanity.
The perpetrators of the alleged steal will
be brought to trial immediately after elec
tion, and in the words of Judge James Gay
Gordon, counsel for Mayor Weaver, "jus
tice, Impartial and unrelenting, will be

are already in the hands of the law. Like
revelations in the consumptive annex of the
I Philadelphia Hospital have lent weight and
votes to the city party cause. Many minor
! Instances of graft have worked to the
same end, and today consternation rules In
the high and low places of machine circles.
Another candidate, too, according to Col.
James GufTey, who will win by a majority
of 60,< oJ in the state, is Mayor William H.
Berry of Chester, candidate for state treas- i
urer. He will receive virtually all city
party votes In Philadelphia, because of the j
fidelity of J. Lee Plummer, his opponent,
to the organization and the recent exposures
as to the methods employed In the handling
of state funds by the crowd.
Over 10,000 women have enrolled In a j
club for civic purity. The number In
cludes some of the most prominent women
of the city. They are doing everything pos
sible, In their own effective way, for the
success of the fight which they tersely de
scribe as "graft versus anti-graft."
They hold nightly meetings, which are
addressed by leading club women, contrib

are insistent that husband and son shall
vote to uphold and perpetuate good munic

John Weaver nearly a year ago.

prosecuted more vigorously than at any
period during that time.

Thirty-five meetings are scheduled in dif
ferent parts of the city for the day and
night and tension over the result on Tues
day Is at its highest.
^n the other hand the campaign of the
machine has been pre-eminently a feeble
one. With but one paper to stand by It the
effect has been Indifferent when contrasted
with the remaining dallies of the city which
are arrayed against it.
In advertising by poster, painted sign and
tn the dailies which are rabidly opposed to
It, together with expenditures for parades
and red fire, the organization has spent at
a conservative estimate a round million.
As to real issues, the machine has none.
At best Its campaign has been one of
sophistry, but nothing daunted they are still
pouring in their money In the hope that
the 200,000 majority will not be overcome.
With all campaign guns practically fired
and public opinion molded now beyond all
hope of perversion, little remains for the
success or failure of either party between
now and Tuesday.
Politically, Philadelphia is not a town of
surprises, but now when every woman on
the street displays a city party button,
when every man talks simply of the bat
tle of ballots to be fought on Tuesday, and
with fear and trembling in the ranks of
both sides, a surprise will not be a sur
prise to Philadelphlans.
A careful review of the political horizon
would indicate that the city party will
either win by a safe majority or uphold
civic decency by a sweeping victory at the
polls. WILLIAM H. PAYNB.
