calling, said it was at least 16.000.

fects in Economic Theories
of His Opponents.
Cleveland, Ohio, October 11.?Gover-1
nor Woodrow Wilson, In discussing to?
day his argument tbat 'the thought of
the leading men ot the United States
Steel Corporation Is behind the tnird
party program with regard to the regu- <
lation or trusts," drew attention to
what he termed 'a very slgnlncantj
fact" mat Ueorge W. Perjtins "is him?
self back of the program." Ths Dem?
ocratic nominee recalled fhe fact that
Mr. i'er kins ftad once "aisclosed in
investigations berore Congress his
whole thought" about establishing ha-]
duatnal commissions to regulate mo-;
nopoiy.
The Governor -spoke at Canton, the
home of McKinley, and in Cleveland,
besides the attack In his speech on the
trust plank of the Progressive party,
he paid tribute to the memeory ot
president McKinley, declaring that Just
before he died, he showed "symptoms
of adjustment to the new age such as
his successors hsve not exhibited." and
foresaw the necessity of elasticity In
the tariff and reciprocal trade rela?
tions with the world.**
"The regular Republicans say they*
are opposed to monopoly." said the'
Governor at Canton, "but when they
come to speak of the methods of re-,
straining it. they chiefly indulge in a
narrative of what they have already'
done, which we know to have been
ineffectual, and when the third party
takes up this side of the difficulty
what do they do? They propose to
leave things aa they are and subject
them to supervision of an industrial
commission, and we know what that
Industrial commission Is expected to;
do.
A Starodfteaat Fact.
"It Is a very significant fact thai
George W. Perkins is himself hack of
this program, not because I would in?
timate any corrupt or improper In?
fluences, for I would not. Mr. Perkins
has Just as much right to his opinion
as I hav?, but Mr. Perkins has dis?
played hla whole thought in Investiga?
tions before Congress, and on one oc-:
caslon. for example, in testifying be?
fore the committee of the Senate, he
said there ought to be an Industrial
commission before whom gentlemen
desiring to combine should lay their
plans, and that if they were accepted,
tbat should exempt them from the,
operations of the clause of the Sher?
man act forbidding; combinations in
restraint of trade.
"In other words, he wants a com?
mission which will permit, under regu?
lations, the process of eoanciaations
and monopoly snd, therefore. I take
it for granted that that Is what is Th
the third psrtys Thought and in its
program, because I am Interested not
In where Mr. Roosevelt's money comes
from, hot where his Ideas come from,
and I see multiplying signs that his
Ideas come from those who set up
monopoly and who naturally wish to
maintain lt. I am no more in favor of
a gentlemanly monopoly than one that
is rude and impolite."
The Governor brought forth in the
same speech his Ideas on regulating
competition.
"You will say ?will you set up coin
petition by statuteT I am not aa in- j
nocent as I look." said the nominee. |
"I am not maintaining that you can ?
command men to compete, but i do !
say that you can remove the now in- j
supersble impediments to competition. '
No body of men who control 15 per 1

The attempt to rob ithe train to

GAMBLER'S DEATH
Maurice Luban Identifies "Gypj
the Blood" and "-Lefty Louie"
as Two of the Men Who
Fired Fatal Shots?Defense
Seeks to Discredit
Testimony.
New York, October 11.?First testi?
mony implicating Charles Becker In
the murder or Herman Kooenthal waa
given at to-day's seesion of the trial
of the former police officer accused of
instigating the murder of the gambler.
It wa? testified by, Maurice Luban mat
J;e-eker had said to Jack Rose about
three weeks before the murder: "If
that - Rosen thai is not croaked
I will croak him myself."
Luban, who also was an eyewitness
of the murder, identified in court to?
day "Gyp the Blood" and "Lefty Louie"
as two of the men who fired the snots
that killed RosentbaU. and William
Shapiro as driver of the murder car.
"Gyp" and "Lefty" he had known
for more than a year, he said, and he
also swore that "Dago" Frank, like- j
wise an acquaintance, waa in the ?'oup
when the shots were fired. He knew I
Rosen thai, and had seen Becker. He
proved to be such a strong witness |
for the State that John F. Mein tyre, I
chief counsel for the defendant, spent
two hours snd a half trying to break
down his testimony.
"Frasae-UpM Clatsaed.
Luban was only discovered by Dis?
trict Attorney Whitman a day or two
ago. He was found with his brother
Jacob, held in Jail in Newark on a
forgery charge. The brothers claimed
to have been "framed up" by somebody.
The prosecutor procured their release
on parole, and, according to Maurice,
the witness, -promised to help them
in every way if they would prove their
frame-up.'
On the stand Luban said he heard
Becker utter his alleged death threat
against Rosenthal in the steam room
of the Lafayette Baths, and that he
stood within two or three feet ot the
police officer at the time. He did not
know Becker well, he conceded, but
had seen him in a gambling iboase on
Allen Street
? How did you know it waa Becker
you saw in this gambling house." j
asked Mr. Mclntyre.
"Because I asked. I thought it
strange that a man of his appearance I
should be in such a place." rejoined j
the witness.
He added that Becker was talking I
at the time with "Denny Sly Fox." an
underworld character who is expected |
to be a witness in the trial.
Luban's identification of the gun!
men was made without hesitation-j
When they were brought in for his in- j
spection it was their third appearance
In the court room during the day. !
Giovanni Stanch, another witness, had ;
identified "Whitey" Lewis, and they!
had also been lined up before Ryan, a :
chauffeur, who declined in a frightened:
manner to identify any of them, al
though he. too. had seen them.
Gaa Mea Protest.
The gun men on the third appear?
ance made a protest. "We don't ob
fSct to being identified, but we think
we ought to have a chance like every- j
body else to be lined up with more j
men." said "Lefty Louie." "We want,
this thing cleared up. but we want,
a square deal."
The testimony of Luban as to how
the shooting was done closely corrob- j
orated stories told by other witnesses. !
Hs said he had gone to the Metropole j
wich a woman hi knew only as Annie. [
who also had seen the shooting.
Mr. Mclntyre dwelt long upon the
fact that Luban had been In Jail on a
forgery charge and in other ways at?
tack*.! the character of the wttn.-ss.
"Isn't it a fact." shouted the attor?
ney, "that you and your brother of?

DEFENDS HIS RECORD
?iiirtilt Teil? Why He DM Vet Take
l> TmrUT Revtsion.
Oshkosh. Wla., October 11.?A de?
fense of his record on the tariff ques?
tion and an attack on Governor Wil?
son's position were mads in a speech
here to-night by Colonel Roosevelt.
Governor Wilson, he said, had been the
hope of the progressive* hut had
chanfed his attitude, and "at present
his sole chance tiea in the support of
the reactionaries,"
lie spoke in a warehouse, as all
available halls were too small.
Here. In Senator La, Follette's own
State, the Colonel discussed for the
first time of his campaign the Sena?
tor s opposition to -him.
Colonel Roosevelt said the Progres?
sive party's campaign fund this year
would be leas than half the fund of
either the Democratic or the Republi?
can party. The Progressives, he said,
were planning on a basis that would
involve the expenditure of about
$350,007.
Colonel Roosevelt, arguing questions
of some of his opponents as to why he
did not take up the tariff question
when he was President, said:
"When I became President business
had Just passed through two terrible
earthquakes* there having been two
complete and sweeping changes of the
tariff In the preceding eight years. The
time for such another change did not
ripen until the very end of my admin?
istration.
"During the time I was President;
there was no complaint that I was not
doing enough. The complaint of al!
my enemies waa that I was doing too
I much. The chief demand that the
tariff should be taken up came from
the great railway and trust magnates,
j who have always been anxious to use
j the tariff as a red herring to be
dragged across the trail whenever ac?
tion which they dislike is threatened
?and Mr. Wilson is obligingly trying
to play their game at this moment.
"Mr. Wilson, on the tariff, as on al?
most every other Issue, either takes
no definite position or takes so many;
conflicting positions that it is diffi?
cult to know what he means to do.
Probably Mr. Wilson has no clear idea
of what he does Intend to do."

New Tork, October 11.?The Bostons,
pennant-winners of the American
League, were victors to da> over the
New Tork National League team hy a
score of 3 to 1 in the fourth game of
the world's series. The Red Sox lATtt
now won two game* and the Gia.it?
' one game, the second contest having
i ended in a tie.
Some 36>0.> people jammed in th*
stadium to-day saw a thrilling con?
test. The two team* played in their
true form, and the nervousness shown
in earlier contests was not observed.
"Smoky Joe" Wood shone to-day.
The Red Sox players fairly hugged
I their star box man as he walked out it

; from his belt.
j Gray sodden clouds screened the gun*
; and in the murky atmosphere Wood's
; speed ball worked havoc with the
? ?-iants hatting. Only once was a Giant
' batter able to gauge the Boston man'e
' curves for a hit when a hit meant a
! run.
j The infield was wet with rate. Wood]
i stood in a pile of sawdust. His pitch
1 ing was without blemish or flaw, not
one man being: passed, while eight
Giants walked to the plate and then
walked back again after vainly tryii.sr
to read the riddle of the Boston man'a
mystifying drop balls and fast in
shoots.
"How can we hit what we can't seer*

to the bench after fanning for ths>
second time.
Wood at Has Best.
Wood was in trouble in only two
innings, in the sixth and again in tha
seventh, when the home club's only
run came over the plate. The sixth
showed Wood at his bes* Tesreaa
Jabbed a hit to left, and Devoro .
bounced a drive off Wood's ankle for
a base before any one was out.
