gressive leaders and then dictated a .
statement In which he declared Gover- ]
nor Deneen was guilty of "deliberate j
and willful perversion of the truth."
The statement was made in answer
to Governor Deneen's criticism* of i
Roosevelt's stand on the contested dele- |

governor announced openly that he J

"The man who to get an office will ■
bear false witness against his neighbor
can not be trusted to keep the other j
commandment when in office." Roose
velt said in closing his statement. "Mr. j
Deneen is seeking office by bearing ,
witness against his neighbor."
Referring to his experience with Gov
ernor Deneen. the colonel said:
**I had no private dPaliners with Mr.
Deenen during the Chicago conven
tion. During that convention I be
came convinced of his shuffling and
<-iouble dealing. I grew to feel a very
Hearty contempt for him and entirely
to mistrust his sincerity and loyalty to
the people's' cause.
"All the conversations about the con

ATTACK ON WILSON"
In an address at the Coliseum to
night Roosevelt attacked Woodrow
Wilson's record in the New Jersey
governor's chair on the trust question,
and declared that lf the democrats
were successful In November the great
trusts of the country would find Gov
*. nor Wilson "a most delightful and
' armless companion." a
Roosevelt further Insisted that New
Jersey was above any other common
wealth the "trust state" of the coun
try, and while It had laws which could
be used with great effect against the
trusts Governor Wilson had pursued a
"do nothing" policy In this regard.
While sketching his own record on
the trusts while president, Roosevelt
"I made so much impression by my
repeated messages and addresses that
the republican platform In 1908 did
definitely promise action along the
lines I had indicated—although the
promise was broken by those In charge
of the republican party as soon as I

PLUNGED INTO BAY
PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 12.—Aviator
Marshall B. Reid and Henry C Mustin,
a lieutenant commander In the navy,
were found today In Delaware bay
after clinging for more than 15 hours
to the wreck of the hydro-aeroplane
In which they started yesterday to fly
from Cape May to this •ity.
The engine of their machine exploded
while it was flying at the rate of 40
miles an hour over the bay and both
men and airship plunged like a shot
An oyster boat picked up the men,
who finally had moved to a buoy the
wreckage, which had been kept afloat
by its pontoons.
"When we were about 12 miles from
Cape May, flying about 150 feet in
the air and making 40 miJ#s an hour,
the engine behind us exploded,'* said
Reld, describing his thrilling escape
"The four cylinders blew out to
gether. The aeroplane caught flre and
we dropped like a plummet. Right
down Into Delaware bay we went but
the flames' were extinguished by the
"The pontoons kept us afloat and we
drifted around in the bay for 15 hours
and 40 minutes. Then we bumped into
a stake driven into the bottom of the
bay to indicate the position of an oys
ter bed and we made fast to it and
waited for daybreak. We were picked
up and landed by an oyster patrol boat,
which also took the wrecked machine
ashore. Both Mustin and I escaped
without a scratch.
"The only explanation I can give for
the accident is that the gasoline used
was of too high quality. The pontoons
saved our lives and proves that the
hydro-aeroplanes are much safer than
the ordinary flying machines. If that
accident.had happened over land there
's nothing in the world that would
nave saved us."

this afternoon and are still at large
tonight. The possibility of their re
capture is remote since they are be
lieved to have gained the hills north
of the town before nightfall.
Scattered shots echoing faintly
through the darkness indicate that
some of the searching party have
either come on the fugitives or are
infected with the panic that reigns in
the homes of Rawlins tonight.
The town is patroled by armed citi
The reign of terror began at 3
o'clock when from the penitentlarv
burst a bedlam of shouts of convlcta
and through the streets of the north

Horses tethered in front of saloons
were grabbed by the leaders and bore
them at breakneck speed through the
town and away to the hills. Four of
the convicts captured a grocery wagon
and compelled the boy driver to race
for the hills. When the horse gave
out they loaded themselves with its
provisions and ran.
Four of the fugitives hiding in a
canyon north of Rawlins were caught,
in half an hour and a fifth was cap
tured making for the railroad tracks.
Three were cornered in another can

mounted pursuers, but were not taken.
The guards returning with the Aye
prisoners were greeted by the convicts
with an uproar of groans and it was

Shortly before 7 o'clock tonight four
fugitives were discovered hiding in a

but two got away.
This made a total of seven recap

arrived at the penitentiary with two
men he had taken single handed, rais
