Wilson and Marshall. j
Terre Haute. Ind., October 2-?Dr.
Harvey yv. Wiley, former chief of the
Federai Bureau of Chemistry, and;
government pure food expert, made
his debut aa a Democratic campaign
speaker here to-night. His speech
was devoted largely to an attack upon
Colonel Roosevelt, who, he said, was
falsely claiming credit for the paa-;
aage of the pure food and drug act. ?
Me announced he would support Wll- !
son and Marshall.
"Head the hlgh-toundirig moralities;
Of the i'rogressive platform." said the:
doctor, "and compare them with thej
actual performances of Its master |
builder. They don't seem to consist.!
1 cannot conceive of any mine wicked J
and law-breaking performance. A
bencflcient law?paseed in good faith;
by Congress?was mercilessly eviscer?
ated and the disemboweled corpse was'
turned over to the Secretary of Agri-j
culture for dissection. The Secretary!
of Agriculture, inspired by his trusties j
in crime. Solicitor McCabe and Associ-!
ate Dunlap. attacked the carcass with;
the avidity of fasting buzzards, and
soon only the whitening bones of the
1'ure Food Law remained as mute
witnesses of its existence."
Worshiper of the Dollar,
declaring that he had remained
loyal to the Republican party forj
many years In aplte of his conviction:
that it was "yearly becoming a wor-j
shiper at the shrine of the dollar and!
less mlndf Ji of honesty in business and '
the public health and welfare.'* Dr.
Wiley said: "I now believe that thej
Republican party, as at present con- .
?HtattaS. is so completely subjugated_
by the dollar, so permested by thej
canker of big business as Its only god. >
that only disastrous defeat can ever |
restore it to health. I
?In my own caae the chief cause
of breaking away from my life-long
political affiliations Is directly due to
the attitude of two Republican ad
sainlstrations. via. those of Roosevelt
and Taft, to the food and druga acL j
?Arrayed against this aalutary stat?
ute has been formed the very worst
elements of commercialism thit this or
any other country could produce. De

bad succeeded in blocking legislation.
Standing together were those drugging
our foode to preserve them from de?
cay and coloring them with poisonous
dyes to make them seem fresh; th>se
mixing cheap substitutes w;tn foods
and drugs to keep up their weight and
volume and deceive and thr-aten '.ne
purchaser; those who. with cheap al?
cohol, simulated the old and fragrant
products of the vineyard and -is dls
tiUlng. who mude beer of cheap sugar*
and wine of coal tar dyes, tannin and
saccharin, and those who preyed on
the imaginatljns of the lay.a- n and
sold them worthless and harmful rem?
edies. Fullbellied and sleekficed lob?
byists filled the hotels of Washington
and uaed the columns of our newspa?
pers, eminent professors in cur col?
leges and universities were brought to
Washington to tell the committees of
Congress that all these disreputable
practices were harmless and required
by the exigencies of the trade.

"During all thia time no Prealdent
of the Fnited State* and no Cabinet
offlcer ever said a favoring word for
the enactment of thia law, except on
ane or two occasion* in a most aer
functiry way. Mr. Roosevelt in one of
his messages alluded to the matter In
a short paragraph without accentua?
tion. The Secretary of Agriculture, on
a few occasions in hia rei oiiirnttida
tiona to the President called attention*
to the agitation going on. But the
Bureau of Animal Induatry of the De?

I New Republic May Be Asked to

Washington October 2.?A joint de?
mand upon China for Immediate pay?
ment of arrears on the Boxer indem?
nity, about $50,000,000. has been
j proposed by Russia to the other
I live interested potters. It is not
I denied that this movement is
J intended as a sharp and forceful re?
buke to the Chinese government for
j contracting loans with Independent
' bankers in disregard of the warnings
j of the powers, and after rejecting the
proposed international loan.
No official intimation has been given
j as to what will be the attitude of the
I Cnited States, or of the other powers?
I Germany. France. Great Britain and
; Japan?toward Russia's invitation for
1 a conference, but it is said that the
I European governments, at least, are
j aery likely to look with favor upon
j the proposition. It Is by no means cer
I tain, however, that the movement would
1 proceed to the extent of a foreclosure.
1 which would mean the assumption of
i the control of Chinese finances by the
powers without regard to the wishes
] of the republic. In fact, one or two
! of the powers already are urging a
I resumption of the negotiations for the
I placing of the great loan of $350.00",
' 000. which were stopped by the con
i elusion of the independent loan, and it
' is believed that If China consented to
! do this, the powers would readily agree
to grant further extension of time for
final settlement of the old claim*. |
Russia has taken the initiative In
the movement to bring pressure to;
'bear upon China for the reason that
[the amount of Indemnity due to her
and unpaid?$35.000.090?Is equal ate]
J the total amount of the indebtedness
i due to the other Are powers combined.
I Thesr payments have been accumulat
I ing now for a year, and the powers
j have refrained from demanding settle
1 ments out of consideration of the tre
I inendou*) travail through which China
I has been passing, resulting In the
j birth of the new republic. Now. how?
ever, the dealing of China directly
> with Independent bankers has insplr
i ed some of the powers with a fear that

Parker Answers Critics.
Syracuse. X. Y, October I_Alton B.
Pa-rker took the opportunity afforded
by his speech to-day as permanent
: chairman, after having been selected
by the Democratic State Convention,
to answer his critics at the Baltimore
convention when William J. Bryant
I waged battle against his selection as
; temporary chairman. In defending
himself he also defended the New
York state delegation, which also waa
the object of Mr. Bryan's most fervfcx
attacks. Judge Parker said the ac?
tion or the New York delegation at
Baltimore was dictated by the desire
to promote harmony.
"We believe it was better that are
should suffer a little Indignity thaa
by entering into a dispute with the
gentleman upon the platform (Mr.
Bryan) divide that convention in two*
and we helri our peace.
"We held our peace for the good
of Democracy; we held our peace be?
lieving that either Clark or Wilson
would be nominated, and we deter?
mined that New York State should
take no part In that conteat which
would prevent the people of the Unit?
ed States from uniting, all together,
to elect whichever one of them
should bo the nominee of the party."*
j It waa after 3 o'clock when the
convention was called to order. A roll
call was taken on the selection of
Judge Alton B Parker for permanent
chairman and he was declared elect?
Speakers opposed Judge Parker on
the alleged ground that he is not a>
progressive Democrat. The platform
adopted ratifies the Democratic na?
tional plattorir. pledgee its support to
Wilson and Marshall and condemns
what it styles the "monopolistic tariff
evils' of the Republican party.
