Chicago. Oct. IS. Senator J. K. Jone.
chairman of the Democratic National Com.
mittee, to-day made the following state
ment: "It has been the fashion of tho Repub
licans for some jears to denounce the Dem
ocrats as anarchists rev oluUonlsts nnd the
like, and the Kepuhliean party seems to
have a monopoly of revolutionary jus
gestlons Just now.
"We see a Secretary of the Treasury, In
an effort to disturb the business of ho
country for political effect, suggesting that
Mr. Eryan. in case of his election, would
deliberately evade the law. with a purpose
as unstatesmanllke and unpatriotic as his
own In making this suggestion.
"Fortunately, Mr. Hryan has been before
tho public long enough for every one to
know that tricks and false pretenses are
not among hl3 weapons, and suggestions of
this kind excite contempt.
"But worse than this is tho fact that
other men. who should despise such pre
tenses, affect to believe that in case ZVIr.
Bryan shall be elected. h would pack the
Supreme Court for purposes of his own.
Can It be possible that these men them
selves actually contemplate such revolution

"Certainly no such revolutionary schemes
have been advocated or even suggested by

Thero is nothing In any Democratic plat

Democrat, to suggest such an Idea.

SlroiiR Democratic Argument.
"This manifestation is of itself a strong
argument for a return to the strict ob
servance of the principles of the Constitu
tion and of the Democratic doctrine of a
conservative and honest government.
"I rei-at that there Is nothing in any
Democratic utterance upon which this fear
of 'attack upon the Supreme Court" can be
founded. The construction put upon the ex
pressions in the Democratic platform of
luD'i which were iervertcd and miscon
strued as a basis for such charges, was un
warranted and untrue. No such purpose has
ever entered the mind of any Democrat,
but the leading idea with Democrats erverj
where Is to return to the principles of tho
Constitution and to faithfully administer
the laws as written."

on tho tracks opposite the car works yes
terday In the dork fog of the early morning.
Three iere run down and a fourth escaped
only by the coolness of & companion, who
pulled her out of the locomotive's path just
in time. They were Clara Morris and tho
Misses Schiller. Mary Decker was the
plucky girl who saved Kate Leigh.
Tho trio struck by tho engine lived
through an ordeal they will always recall
with a shudder. Miss Morris wag the most
painfully Injured, but all escaped with com
paratively slight bruises. Her experience
was the most unique of the occasion. Tho
engine beam caught her squarely on tho
arm and she was thrown head foremost
and directly under tho ccach of a Terminal
train going In an opposite direction. whl-h
stopped nlth & truck within a foot of her
Frightened and bleeding, she struggled
out, but, the danger over, she swooned.
It was the Terminal suburban train,
northbound, that the party wa waiting
for, all being employes of the stamping
works, and on their way to Granite City.
The mornlns air, dump with the fog of
tho bottoms, necessitated wraps, and when
the girls arrived at the tracks tney grouped
themselves tognher for a chat before train
time. At 7 o'clock, the work train for
Granite City whistled for a regular stop
and the party stepped from the cast track
to the 'nest track, to bo out of harm's
way. As they peerrri ahead to catch sight
of the work train the Wabash passenger
steamed down tho west track, southbound
for St. Louis.
Tho crowd became panic stricken. The
engineer on tho big passenger train was un
able to seo twenty fe-t down the track, but
he bad tho train under control, and when
tho girls were struck and thrown In a,
heap between the Wabash locomotive and
the coach of the -norktraln. both trains
Jolted to a stop almost Instantly.
Tho excited girls were In varylnff posi
tions. Tho Misses SchUlcr lay between
the trains. Miss Morris was under tho
Terminal coach prostrate and within arm's
reach of the wheels that would havo
ground her to Instant death had they stop
ped a moment later than they did. But
before help could reach her she crawled
out and then Tainted from sheer fright.
MIs Kate Leigh had been thrown Into
the weeds beyond the tracks by tho Im
pact of Miss Mary Decker's body. Miss
