LONG BRANCH, N. J.. Sept 29.
President Wilson made it plain today
that he wants no "disloyal" Americans
to vote for him. He expressed indig
nation at a telegram from Jeremiah
A. O'Leary, of New York, the president
of the American Truth Society, ac
cusing him of being pro-British and
saying he had failed to obtain com
pliance with American rights.
The President sent Mr. 0"Leary a
short telegram which officials indicat
ed Mr. Wilson had desired to put in
stronger language. His message fol
lows: Doesn't Want Their Vote.
"Your telegram received. I
would feel deeply mortified to
have you or anybody like j'ju
vote for me. Since you have
access to many disloyal Ameri
cans and I have not, I will ask
you to convey this message to
them." ' i -

Pastor Win for a Moment,
But Mob Later Finishes
(By Review Leased Wire.)
NOWATA, Okla., Sept. 29. Two
negroes, accused of being implicated
in the killing of Deputy Sheriff James
Gibson, during a jail delivery here to
day, were taken from jail by a mob
tonight and lynched in front of the
It was only a few minutes' after the
negroes had pained their freedom
that a mob bent on vengeance was in j
close pursuit. Two of the negroes i
took refuge in a house in the out
skirts of Notwata, where they were
surrounded and re-arrested. The
third negro apparently made good his
escape. One of the re-arrested ne
groes, John Foreman, alleged to have
been the man who killed Gibson, was
wounded when taken into custody and
was not molested.
But the unwounded negro was seiz
ed by the mob, which had grown to
large proportions and a parade began
through the principal streets with the
negro screaming for mercy. When
the mob reached the Methodist church
a large tree with outspreading, branch
es offered the opportunity which the
rope around the negro's neck suggest
ed. "Let's lynch the nigger on holy
ground," shouted some one in the
crowd. The prisoner was swung clear
of the ground and was being choked
to death when Mr. Hi Pearce appear
ed. Attracted from his study in the
parsonage by the negro's screams, he
rushed from the house into the midst
of the crowd and began his pleading
for the doomed man's life. The mob
paused in Its work to hear what the
minister had to say.
"Men, I beseech you in the name of
God not to desecrate this holy
ground," pleaded Mr. Pierce, "do not
stain the name of our city by going
Into this terrible affair."
With voice quivering with emotion
and earnestness he demanded that the
law be allowed to take its course.
Five minutes the pastor spoke along
these lines, until one of the mob lead
ers, turning to his fellows, said:
"Men, Mr. Tierce is right. Take the
nigger back to jail and let the law
take Its course."
The mob, sobered by the Impassion

NEW YORK, Sept. 29. Ferry boats
of the New York Central Railroad
J Company, plying between Manhattan
and New Jersey were tied up during
the rush hours late today by a strike
of 150 employes on the boats. The
latest labor difficulty In this city re
suited from the men's demand for
shorter hours and higher pay. The
strike has no connection, it is said,
with the traction situation.
Thousands of commuters gathered
at the Manhattan Ferry stations of
the company, the crowds overflowing
the ferry houses into the streets,
where a heavy rain was falling. Not
until the police reserves were called
out did the commuters abandon their
demand for boats. They left the city
for their home in New Jersey over
roundabouts routes. '

Germans Resume Act
of Abusing America
(By Review Leased Wire)
BERLIN, Sept. 29. Immediately on
the heels of the utterances of the Im
perial chancellor in the Reichstag
concerning the submarine campaign,
the afternoon newspapers generally
print strong criticism of the netrality
of the United States based on the
news of the death of the American
aviator Kiffin Rockwell and the pres
ence of other American aviators on
the western front.
They connect this evidence of Am
erican sympathy for the entente al
lies, and the supplying of war muni
tions by firms in the United States as
! an indication of the futility of con-
cessions to the American standpoint
with ref;ard to 8ubmarlnes.
; clare that these facts show how Am
erican respect for neutrality is van
ishing and how America is misusing
the present form of submarine war
fare to cover the participation of American-
concerns In the war on the
side of the entente allies.

Quick action by the Bisbee rifle
clubs has brought a favorable reply

Twenty shots must be fired at

MILLION AND HALF
FOR DEMOCRATIC RACE.
NEW YORK. Sept 29. A fund
of $1,500,000 gold will be required
f conduct the Democratic na-
tional campaign, according to a
statement made here tonight by
Henry Morgenthau, treasurer of
the national campaign committee,
He declared New York was ex-
pected to contribute about one
third of this amount, which ex-
ceeds by about $400,000 the sum
- spent In the 1912 campaign.
As an example of the increased
ttst of the present campaign,
Mr. Morgenthau said that the
printing bill alone would be three
times as much as it was in 1912
because of the increased price of
paper. He announced that con-
tributions thus far received ex-
ceeded by 65 per cent those which
had been sent in up to the same
time in 1912.
There have been several contri-
butions of $10,000 each but only
