TRYING TO MAKE
Reports as to the Methods of the
Trust in the Liggett & Myers
It la reported on good authority that with
in the last two weeks employe of the Lig
gett & Myers tobacco factory, one of the
largest belonging to the. Tobacco Trust,
have by a few hints and many pointed
statements, been given to understand that
their chances of remaining at work during
the coming winter depend largely upon the
election of ilcKlnley.
In th6 lasiJtMv daj-3 several of tho voting
employes of the concern have been cut down
to half time and they have been given to
understand that In case "Bryan Is elected
their services vlll no longer bo needed,
thereby conveying the Idea that the election
of Bryan would be followed by tho closing
of the tobacco works, and that by voting
for McKlnley la order to aid him In de
feating Bryan lay their chance of pros
perity, and that this action was expected
of them regardless of their party affili
ations. Incident showing how this covert in-
mldatlon la Influencing employes of the
trusts Is told by Eugeno Normandy of No.
406$ Fairfax avenue. Mr, Normandy Is an
agent for a sewing machine company and
In making Ms rounds as a city salesman Is
dully thrown In contact with worklngmen
and their wives.
In the last week Mr. Normandy placed a
machine on trial In the home of an em
ploye of the Liggett & Myers Company
with the understandlnt; that If ratlsfnctor
It would be bought from him and paid for
In Installments. Calling for an answer yes
terday, Normandy was told by the wife
that a decisive answer could not bo given
until after the presidential election. Upon
pressing his Inquiries, he learned that the
husband a week aso had been cut down to
three working days a week and given to
understand that his only chanco of a re
turn to steady work lay In the election of
McKlnley and that If Bryan nas elected
thero -vould be still another reduction and
perhaps his employment would cease alto
gether. Therefore tho wife could not guar
antee payments on the machine. In tho
home of another employe of the same con
cern, where he had placed a machine, Nor
mandy was met with almost tho same re
ply. It was stated y these people that It
was well understood by tho employes of

llobson Says Admiral Sampson Is
Dying Because of Criticism.
Atlanta, Ga., Oct. El During his present
visit to his home In Alabama nnd
wherever he has cpjored betoro tho pub
lic. Richmond P. lltbton has been quoted
assajing that Admlril SampBOn is dying of
a broken ti-art. ofting to the Sanipioii
bchicy controversy, which followed th
naval engastmetit ut Santiago, lie is
quoted as follows.
When Inst Saturday. October 13, I saw
in the papers that Admiral Sampson was

spent s-unilay with Mm. iils ncaun is ut
ciiniiu;. His pujciclciis arc I allied at, his
nialaoy. His organs are all right, but his
health doc-n't impro.-e. ,
"We touched cm oce or two subjects. For
a little wlillo lie cjuld not tjjtak. Soon
he had to be carried to his room, and I
did not fci" iiim agum. Mrs. Sampson told
me that this great man was brooding, was
breaking his heart a: the thought that tils
fellow-countrymen were so unkind.
"I said to Mrs. Sampson.
"'When I ltlt m Southland, If thn op
portunity offers itself, I wlh to till them
bomcthing of this majestic character'
"She replied: 'Vou dare not. Your South
land was quick and lgorous to resent
what wb thought to b3 an attempt to take
away the laurels of one of its great men.'
"I cam" by Washington and raw the Sec
retary of the Navy and the President. To
them I also stated my Intention and they
both gave me tlitlr consent, warning mo,
roweier, of whit I rilshl expect."
Air. Hobson. in hla sueech at a nubile re
ception here to-day. said Admiral Sim;ton
had not received simple justice at tho hands
of the American people. He said:
"It has Ikvii souaht to place him In a j
despicable ltaht before the wo'ld. To make j
him an incompetent, narrow -minded man
and Jealous of tho fame of his contempo- I
rnrles, particularly 01 ono u.usirious navai
hlef. As his Junior oMcer. serving umler
him, I express Ihe deliberate opinion that
Admiral Sampson is the colossetl figure of
the Spanish-American War the genius of
the naval lictory of Santiago.
"Ho la unmatched to-day as the directing
mind of a war squadron en tho seas."

FELL 100 FEET, BUT
Earth Gave Way Under John
I.iclier and lie Plunged to the
Bottom of Lohrum's Quarry.
John Richer, a laborer, fell headlong to
the bottom of Lohrum's Quarry, a distance
of 1W feet, yesterday afternoon, and, osldi
from slight contusions of the body, wras un
injured. Richer lives Just south of Caron
dclct, near the quarry, and his fall was
the result of tho caving In of an overhang

watching the quarrymen at work. That 1
Richer Is allvo and apparently but slightly
Injured Is considered miraculous by Doctor
Nlctert, Superintendent of the City Hos
pital. Hither Is not at all exercised over
his perilous experience, and unhesitatingly
discusses It with the attendants and ph) si
clans In his ward.
Richer Is K years old and until recently
was employed 83 a farmhand in St. Louis
County. Ho was returning to his home
after a vain endeavor to find employment
yesterday when he observed several men
at work in the quarry. Tho quarry Is an
exceptionally deep one. and Is bordered on
tho top by overhanging lodges of rock and
earth which extei.d. peninsular like, at Ir
regular Intervals, for a distance of many
feet owr the abyss. On ono of these frail
ledges Richer waa standing, watching tho
quarrymen ut work lirt feet below. Sud
denly he felt the earth sinking beneath
him and before he could rcalizo his pro
carious position he was precipitated to tha
bottom. The crash or falling rock and clay
attracted Uio attention of the quarrwnen
