enson closed his Illinois appointments hero
to-ctiy. It was a. fittiiijj close to a canvass
ot two -weeks which furnished tho most
stratllp? changes of sentiment from tho Re
publican party In Illinois. Mr. Stevenson
is entitled to a largo share of the credit
In convcrtinjr thinking Republicans, those
with even a small patriotic si ir't. frcm tho
perils of an Umpire, with Its train of evils,
vast military establishments. costly naval
pageants, expensive defenses for sencoa3t3
and the Inovltiblo Increas In taxation.
Sir. Stevenson has appealed elli ctly to
reason and argued with a conservatism
that has not alw.ia pleased his Dcmocra'io
audiences, but tho effectiveness of his
speeches cannot be tioubteJ. The calm dig
nity of his delivery has comrr.ai.de1 rcspeit
and his logic has been unanswerable.
Rather than attempt to lead his listener
away from their political Idols, ho has stu
diously taught them to disrard prejudice,
think for themselves, and adised them to
tako the Ifvues of the campaign home to
I their own firesides and mako up tho verd'et
with a calm deliberation, and then register
tt at tho rolls.
Yesterday Mr. Stevenson rot W. A. Mil

Colonel Henry Davs, a capitalist ff

financial plank four years suro and who
voted the Prohibition ticket then, told mo
this morning that he was satisiled with the
ticket and issues this year.
"I have not chnnsed my views." said he.
"hut I shall vote tho Democratio ticket,
nevertheless. I mn not In politics. Dut I
trust I have enough patriotic! to know
the right thinir to do on cKctlon day, and
this year It certainlv involves a-vote for
the Democratic candidates."
Fred W. Anderhon of the First National
Rank of Tavlurvillo acknowledged that
ho was a Gold Democrat. "Dut 1 am fur
Bryan and Alschtiler this year the silver
issue Is practically settled and unhow is
dwarfed by others which are vitally im

John Combs, Freight Car Inspect
or, Kills August Schniiltgen,
PUTS FIVE BULLETS INTO HIM.
Combs Struck Schmittgen's Hull
Pup and the Owner Resented
It Prisoner Says He Fired
As the icsult of a quarrel over a bultdoj
John Combs, a freight enr lrspector living
at No. 33$ Euce-iia street, last night shot
and Instantly killed August Fcha-.Ittgen, a
watchman for the Merchants' Terminal
Railway Association, who lived at No. "vxi
Wyomlr.s street. The shcotlnx occurred at
&.C0 o'clock In a tallrc-ad she-i at Bremen
avenuo and Hall street.
The men hsd been friends for a Ions time
and met dully in the discharge of their
duties. Pihtnlttgcn owned a bull log which
he look about the yards t ith him at night.
Ye-sterday morning, shortly after C o'clock.
Combs w-a3 passing through thn yards with
a lantern. He met Schmittgen with his dog
ami stopped to talk with him. Schmittgen
playfully set his dog on his friend.
Tho nnlmal evidently thought Its maslcr
was In rarnct and spranff fiercely at
Combs, who avoided It, and struck It wllh
Ms .lantern. The blow hurt the dog. which
howled and ran nil. This enraged Schmltt
Cen, who swore at Combs, and told him If
he hit his elojr. he would have to hit him
or tiko a beating. Hot words were
e-vclrmged by tho two rren, and a fight
probably would have resulted on tho spot
had not a freight train passed alone Just
Qunrrel Was Renewed.
Combs vv.inteel io go in the d!irtlem In
which tho train was moving, and Jump-1
abcard. Schmittgen tried to drag him from
the cars, but was prevented by the con
ductor, who came to C(jmbs's rescue.
Schmlttjen jelled after Comts that ho
would get him later, and teach him to
hit his dog.
Combs siva tint he thought nothing more
of tho Incident sn.l In the evening about
5J, when he went back to the y.ixds, he
dropped in at the shed, whjch the watch
men use as a headquarters, to talk with
Schmlltgrn. The watchman rt.irte-d nt one
to abuv; him, he sajs, and stated that no
man could hit his do:; without having hiia
to deal with him. An argument followed, in
which Schmittgen stated that his do; never
had bothered any one.
Combs offered to bet Schmittgen a suit
of clothes that the dig had blMen people
about the yards, and said thnt If he would
go ov r to his nlhce they could i-ign the
bet. The men started off together and hail
gotten us fur as the shed at Bremen ave
nue when they met a yard clerk. Combs
ealle-d to him anl asked If Schmittgen's
dog had not bitten him.
The clerk answered that the bulldog had
bitten him on the leg a few nights before.
This stat ment e-nraged Schmittgen and he
angrily declared that Combs and the clerk
were both looking for trouble nnd that he
would give It to them. A light followed, in
which Schmittgen ttruck Combs on the
head with his club. Combs drew his revol
ver and lired at Schmittgen until all the
chambers were emJty.
1'ive HullelK Took Effect.
All five bullets took effect and Schmittgen
dropptd to tho ground. An ambulance was.
called, but the wounded man had expired
before it arrived. His bouy wn taken to
tlie- morgue. It was found that he was
shot in tho neck, right groin, abdvmen, left
aim and right leg.
After the shooting Combs walked to the
Sixth District Police Statluii at Ninth and
Angelica streets. He calmly entered tne
stat'on. and. walking up lo the tu.sk. in
formed the Sergeant in charge that he had
shot a man ana wanted to surrender. Wh n
en by u Republic reporter Combs said
that he had acted In self de-ftnse. lie said
that'w:hinlttsen had threatened to kill him
and that be believed it was a question of
one of Ihnm being killed.

Tho doctor dared not propose to the girl,

families of the Austrian aristocracy.
He sent the CounU-ss a bou'iuet every

SPECIAL BY CARLE.
Pari". Sept. -(Copyright. 1300, by W. R.
Hearst.) I find one 6ent!mnt as wide as
Europe, nnd that is that China must pay
heavily for U.Sroagcs done, but continue as
an Empire she must.
The reasons the Governments of Europ
are eIovv to withdraw Is that they are not
sure that China will keep her promise to
behave well and da the right thing.
The two nations most sick of war are Ger
many and Russia. It Is no pleasure to
them to h tve to borrow money from Amer
ica to carry on the present strife. The two
men who most desire pence are Emperor
Nicolas of Russia anl Emperor William of
In my opinion, in sIk months the list
cloud of war will have disappeared from,
the world's sky. From what Emperer
Nicolas told me I know he does not ex-I-vct
a prolongation of the international
trouble. He no more wants a bltr slice ot
China than the United States wants it.
What a great thing it is that at this timo,
when the world has three wars on its
hards, we haw the great Paris Exposi
tion, which In Itself means peace. Natlora
here are side by side in brotherhooJ. It Is
a tableau of the cillennlum.
I have seen the jrreitest fairs of the last
thirty years, but this surpasses all. Why
not? It had all the previous fairs to study
ar.d improve upon. There hive been no
such rich decorations of pavilions and pal
aces, no such spltndor of rich manufac
turers, no such poetry of costume, no suchi
street of nations.
If It were 3s!;eJ which of all the new
