SILENCED BY POLICE
Starts a Riot at

His Hearers Urged to Battle
Under the "Red Flag of
EJECTED FROM THE PLATFORM.
The Expulsion of the Agitator Fol
lowed by a Threatening
CHICAGO. 111., Sept. 22.— Charles W.
Mowbray, the English anarchist, ad
dressed an audience of about 200 persons
at Belmont Grove here to-day. The meet
ing was attended by an inspector of police,
100 police officers in citizen's dress and fifty
policemen in full uniform. At one point
in Mr. Mowbray's speech his language be
came a little too radical to suit the in
spector, and the apeaker was requested to
be more moderate. An exciting scene fol
lowed, and for a time a riot was imminent.
Tnat portion of Mr. Mowbray's address
which caused Inspector Sbaack to call a
halt was as follows :
"During the time I am in Chicago I will
deal with the principles of communistic
anarchism, and I want to induce my fel
lows to join societies and educate and or
ganize tneir brothers. When tnat is done
the time is not far distant when oppressed
mankind will rise, as their forefathers did,
battling on Bunker Hill, battling under
the red flag, not the stars and stripes, but
the glorious red Hag of triumph. When
the people understand how to act and live
like men, honest and upright, there will
be no need of government. Destroy the
Government and you will "
Inspector Shaack and Captain Sehuettler
appeared on the stage at this juncture and
told Mr. Mow bray to stop, at the same
time pushing him toward the edge of the
platform. Wild cries went out from the
spectators, and a rush was made up the
stairway to the stand. Captain Schuettler
was grasped by a score of detaining hands,
and the emphatic orders of Inspector
Sbaack sent burly detectives bounding to
For a moment violence and riot were im
minent, but at the critical moment Carl
Misch, chairman of the mass-meeting,
clashed upon the stage and, hurling his
henchmen to otic side, cried to them to pre
serve order. On the ground R'chard Braun
ectiwei>u_a.locai agitator, was waving his
hands and cursing the police, calling on
Shaaek to listen to Mowbray's explanation.
The speaker was led to the rail and, lean
ing over, cried that he meant there would
be no need of a Government when people
learned to control themselves.
But the inspector ordered him to desist
and the scene of e-citement was renewed.
Howls and jeers tilled the air and sturdy
anarchists tried to force Mowbray back to
Captain Schuettler forced him down the
Btcps, and once on terra firma the London
agitator sought retirement for a full half
hour. Chairman Misch addressed the
assemblage in German, telling them there
was no appeal from the police, and in the
midst of the row the band struck up the
inspiring "Marseillaise," which was taken
up by every man on the grounds until
there was one great chorus.
It was growing dark by this time and
Inspector Shaack put a veto on a proposed
epeech by Lucy Parsons. This seemed to
dampen the ardor of the anarchists, and
when Mowbray left at 8 o'clock the meet
ing resolved itself into a picnic.

MEMPHIS, Tram., Sept. 22.— The execu
tive committee named at the Washington
conference of National Silver Democrats,
will meet here to-morrow. The special
purpose of the meeting is to name chair
men for the respective States, but the com
mittee will also prepare an address to the
friends of silver throughout the country,
admonishing them of the necessity of sys
tem and activity in waging the campaign.
Senator Isham G. Harris is already on the
field, none of the other members having
arrived yet. •
To the United Press correspondent the
Senator explained the address feature of
the meeting, by stating that the goklites,
while largely in the minority, were de
cidedly active and organized, and unless
the silver element got itself into the same
condition, it would be a case of the ma
jority being swamped by the minority.
Senator Turpie of Indiana will not be
present at to-morrow's meeting, but this
will not deter the other members, Senators

At iirst a small group of men assembled
outside the club house on Peach Tree

Governor Morton left the dinner party,
stepped to a window and made a short
speech to those outside. His speech was
loudly applauded. As he returned to the
dinner party, the crowd yelied for Mc-
Kinley, who they knew was inside.
"What did you say, Morton? Words,
nothing but words?" asked Governor Mc-
"Some might think, so, perhaps," re
plied Morton. "I told them you were an
eloquent orator, and would speak for me."
"Then I shall," replied McKinley, for
the cries for tbe Ohioan were now increas

LEAPED FROM A BALLOON
Awful Plunge of a Suicide
From a Height of a Thou
Threatened the Life of Aeronaut
Busch When He Sought to
Prevent the Act.
CINCINNATI, Ohio, Sept. 22.— What
was supposed to have been an accident
proves to be one of the most daring and
awful suicides on record. A week ago Pro
fessor Busch of this city made a balloon
ascension at the county fair at Pennsboro,
W. Va. Just as he was starting a fine
looking man ran up to Busch and asked to
be taken along. He was told he could not
go. But Buach supposed he had left and
sent the balloon up, he riding on a trapeze.
It appears the fellow caught the netting,
and when the balloon was about 1000 feet
high he jumped out. It was thought that
it was an accident. Professor Busch re
turned here yesterday and said it was a
case of suicide.
When he saw the man in the netting he
was so surprised that he almost lost his
balance. He told the fellow to catch hold
of the parachute rope and come down and
he would take him to earth. The man re
fused, and satd he had come up to kill
himself, and unless he cnt loose and went
down quickly he would cut the parachute
rope and both would perish. He had a
knife and Bus^cli let go.
Busch saw the man toss the knife aside
and raise his hand as if in prayer. Then
the death-seeker hurled his body from the
balloon. The roan, who was unknown,
was buried where he fell.

A CURE FOR CANCER
Results of a Treatment
Similar to That for
WILLIAM HART'S CASE.
The San Francisco Journalist
Improving Under the
GROWTH NOTICEABLY CHECKED
Doctor Glbler Will Not, However,
■ Venture a Prediction as to His
NEW YORK, N. V., Sept. 22.— William
Hart, the San Francisco journalist who is
undercoinfr a new and really experimental
treatment for cancer analogous to the Pas
teur treatment for hydrophobia, was said
to-night to have spent a comfortable day
at Pasteur Institute.
Dr. Gibier would not say to-day what ho
thought the chances of a permanent cure
in Mr. Hart's case were. He said it was
too soon to know. This does not mean
that Dr. GiWer is discouraged about him,
however, for as in the case of some other
very important experiments going on there
that are practical successes the doctor does
not want anything said till everything is
established beyond a doubt.
Dr. Gibier said, however, that the growth
of the cancer had been noticeably checked,
and that, without a doubt, the treatment
was doing the journalist good.
The erysipelas serum which has been
successfully applied in the treatment of
cancer may be regarded as one of the most
wonderful discoveries of medical science.
In the light of the present somewhat im
perfect and hazy knowledge of this theory
of curing disease by putting the poison of
one Bnecies of bacteria against another,
now unfolding itserf to scientists, the
newly discovered serum has been made
use of in romance in Eneland.
Taken as an almost specific cure for the
dread disease that had been regarded as
hopeless when beyond he surgeon's knife,
its marvelous efficacy has formed the
theme of a clever story in a London maga
zine. And now that bacteriology is de
veloping new cures, even this latest hope
which science holds out to humanity is
accepted with a passing notice.
The serum has been used with success in
many malignant cases of cancer. Some
physicians in Germany discovered it by
chance. A man stricken with cancer was
attacked with erysipelas, and the doctors
noted that as the disease cained upon him
the cancer faded away, as if it were a mere
flesh wound, healing quickly.
Reasoning from this they made experi
ments on the bacillus in erysipelas, which
was propagated in warm bouillon until the
soup became thoroughly impregnated with
its poison. Then the poison was taken off
and preserved in bottles with a chemical
to sterilize it permanently. In this state,
having a consistency of bouillon and the
color of muddy water, it has been used.
Tne poison has proved too much for the
cancer microbes, and eventually in many
cases driven them to the wall.
When W T illiam R. Hearst learned of
William Hart's serious case he made ar
rangements in Pans to send the serum to
New York and cabled instructions to his
manager here to send Hart and a nurse
to the New York cancer hospital for treat
ment. Mrs. Hart accompanied her son
full of hopes that the serum would effect a
Recently dispatches from New York an
nounced that Hart had grown feverish and
weak and seemed to be fast sinking. But
these symptoms came only within the last
few days and were to be expected at some
stage of the treatment. They were the
turning point, and now the latest news is
that the patient has seemingly battled
through the critical period, resulting, per
haps, more directly from the effect of the
injected serum on his blood than from the
disease itself. In such cases the cnances
for recovery are said to bo full of hope.

BONES OF GREELY'S MEN

NEW YORK, N. V., Sept. 22.— A Re
corder special from St. Johns, N. F., says:
Lieutenant Peary and party brought back
from the north a collection of human
bones, supposedly those of one of the vic
tims of the disastrous Greely expedition.
These bones were found at Cape Sabin,
where ten years ago the Greely explorers
found themselves stranded through the
failure of the relief ship to meet them as
had been agreed upon. This vessel was
crushed in the ice, and the would-be res
cuers were forced to return home at a
period when it was too late to send out an
other relief expedition the same year.
In the meantime Lieutenant Greeiy had
arrived at the point agreed upon with
eight weeks' food for his party. When he
found that he was practically deserted
his supply of food was made to hold out
for twenty-six weeks and he was com
pelled to burn his steam launch for fuel.
It was while suffering here in the direst
distress that it was found that one of the
party was so disloyal as to steal from the
meager supply of food. The last theft re

Lee, a wealthy Chinese merchant of this
city, offers a half interest in his extensive
merchandise business and $5000 in cash to
any reputable young American who will
marry his daughter, Moi Lee.
Hip Sing Lee is the wealthiest Chinese
in this valley and his fortune is estimated
at from $50,000 to $100,000. He conducts a
general merchandise store, with a lottery
game on the side, in this city, and hag
branch stores in Watsonville, Santa Cruz
and Salinas. Lee has become thoroughly
Americanized and as he is getting old it is
his wish to see his daughter happily mar
ried to some good American, who will look
after and care for his business and wealth.
Lee's wife died about a year ago and as
several attempts have been made to kid
nap Moi he is afraid that if Moi does not
marry soon the highbinders may succeed
in abducting her.
Moi Lee, who is 16 years old, is a good
looking Chinese girl. She reads and writes
English and plays some of the most popu
