DIX EXCORIATES ROOSEVELT.
Former President Branded as Wilful
Falsifier-By Democratic Nomi
nee for Governorship.
New York, Nov. 2.-The Democratic
State campaign here reached flood tide
tonight, at a meeting in Carnegie Hall,
where John A. Dix, the nominee for
governor, made his first public ad
dress in the city. The meeting also
served as the occasion for Mayor Gay
nor's long expected formal announce
ment of his support of the ticket. The
mayor's voice still being weak, this
came in the form of a letter to the
chairman of the meeting. The rally
was held under the auspices of the
Independent Business Men's league,
and Hermann Ridder, president of
that organization, presided.
Roosevelt Object of Attack.
Mr. Dix devotd the greater part of
a 3,000 word speech to a denunciation
of Theodore Roosevelt. He charged
the former president with wilful false
hood in repeating the accusation for
wich Mr. Dix, in his Buffalo speech,
demanded an apology. He declared
that Col. Roosevelt, "because of what
he deems to be his political necessity
of the hour, struck hands and made
political alliance with William R.
Hearst, whom four years ago Roose
velt bad "publicly branded as re
sponsible for the assassin's bullet,
which made him president."
Leaving the subject of Roosevelt,
The candidate returned to charges of
Republican extravagance. He prom
Ised that a Democratic administration
vould reduce taxation and once more
make it possible for the "average
man" to save enough for a rainy day.
He denounced the Republican tariff
policy and declared himself - for a
downward revision of the tarift.
"This campaign," said Mr. Dix, "like
so many in the past, involves ques
ions of policy and expenditures; of
jaform and retrenchment and the oth
er questions which necessarily have
to do with carrying on the well order
ed business of government.
"Such questions would have been
ettled in the usual way, by appeals to
lsson and to experience and by that
application to conmon 'sense judg
nt, which Is so distinguishing an
attribute of the average American. But
this was not to be. Into the centre
el the stage there has been hurled
by the Inordinate vanity, the danger
es ambition, the reckless conduct of
a man who has become the apostle of
tumult and the protagonist of mis
iepresentation-th6 momentous ques
tion of whether or not our very repub
lcan Institutions should survive, or,
unader the asaults of the agitator, and
the egotist, should go down to destruc
tion, as have other great countries
under similar assaults.
To Utter Oblivion.
"Fruntl for our country, the
I attleground chosen for this fight was
d.at which combined patriotism, intel
Igence and public spirit in their high
s t form, and the decisive defeat
which lies before this creator of un
iest, this instigator of panic and this
destructive agent of business depres
elon will not alone retire him to a
agshere of well earned and unenvied
seclusion, but will serve for many
years 'to come 'as a signal warning to
a1 other men who may let their a.mbi
ton blind their judgment to the fact
- at there is and must remain a gov
enent of the people and by the peo
"Never before have we, In our his
~Try, had so much occasion to blush
br the conduct of a man who had
een the first citizen of our country
and no greater and more striking dif
erence could be found in our history,
etween the last Republican presi
dent and the Illustrious men who pre
eeded him In office, than is found by
teir conduct after they had retired
kom the great office which they had
"Look for a moment upon the man
who is now rushing up and down the
tate shouting, threatening, abusing
ad wilfully misrpresenting-bring
kg contempt and ridicule upon the
great office he has held, and avoiding
he discussion of all the real Issues
f this campaign and then upon his
great predecessors, who never -for
got that theyr~ emd to their country
men the duty of 'oearing themselves
always with dignity and with .honor.
"Look on the one hand at the man
who typifies assaults upon our courts,
e bulwarks of our liberties, and up
en the freedom of the press, than
which no right is more sacred to free
men, and then upon the men whose
every thought and act taught respect
and regard for lawfully constituted
authority, and say with which of these
men and their policies you would pre
fer to stand.
Now Political A Fies.
"I say to you, my f.: Th citizens of
Nw York, that wh'en t1' shouting
and the tumult shall hav diw away,
when the verdict of imnn-rtial history
shall have been renAer'i. I would
. ousand times prefer to stand with
th plain, strong men who shed lustre
upon their country, rather than with
the man who, publicly branding an
other as responsible for the assas
sin's bullet which made him prasi
dent, has within a few years there
after, because of what he deems to be
his political necessity of the hour,
struck hands and made political al
liance with the man whom he had so
But for Assassin's Bullet.
"Let his friends ta'ke which ever
horn of the dilemma it suits their af
fort and his vanity to choose; my op
ponent's nominator either shamefully
and shamelessly belied a fellow citiz
en when he had Mr. Root make the
Utica speech of 1906, or he now de
serves the condemnation of self-re
specting men in making an alliance
with one but for whom, if we believe
his own charge, President McKinley
might have lived to serve out his elect
ed term of 'office and his succesor
might never have been president of
the United States.
Brands Roosevelt Falsifier.
"I asked this man last week for
the apology which one man owes an
other for even involuntarily misrep
resentation. His answer has been to
repeat, and I now charge, wilfully and
knowingly to repeat, in as many
places and to as many people as his
voice would carry, the statements
which I now publicly brand as false
"I withdraw my request for an
apology and I say with all the
emphasis at my command that a man
who has been president of the United
States who would do the things that
he has done during this eampaign,
merits only the pity of decent men.
Rebuke for Dictator.
"I am neither a prophet or the son
of a prophet, but I venture the pre
diction that after November 8, 1910,
my opponent's nominator will have
stamped upon his innermost con
sciousness the knowladge that the
people of this State are able and
willing to manage and control their
own public affairs, without either in
terference or dictation from any man
who would try to erect a 'new nation
alism' upon the ruins of the institu
tions founded by our forefathers in
days of stress and sacrifice."
Mayor Gaynor's Letter.
Mayor Gaynor's letter was address
ed to Herman Ridder, president of the
Independent Business Men's league.
It follows In part:
"Nine-tenths of the voters of each
party are honest and true. They want
honest and Intelligent government
When their party fails to give it, they
know that the time has arrived when
their duty and also their intellectual
self-respect requires them to vote with
the opposite party. To keep govern
ment up to the.mark, one party should
not be kept in power continuously. It
would be fortunate for us if our poli
tical parties in State and nation were
more evenly divided, so that one party
could be put out and the other brought
Relief In Democracy.
"While the long standing corrup
tion was being revealed from day to
day in Albany last winter, many in
telligent Republicans made up their
minds that it was time to let the Dem
ocratic party come into power for a
while for the common weal, and they
are of that mind still.
"And, happily, Mr. Dix is a man of
such integrity and fitness, and let me
add, freedom from objectionable in
fluences, that there is no reason for
any fair and intelligent man to cast
a mere par~ty vote against him.
"A Democratic convention did a
servie to honest politics by refusing
the alliance offered to It by political
scamps, who have no wish to aid in
good government, but only their vain
and selfish ambition in view and for
that alone. The ticket which it square
ly and fairly nominated should have
the 'healthy good will of every one.
Dix Not Selected by Murphy.
"The assertion that Mr. Dix was
selected and his nomination forced by
a political leader hereabouts, I know
of my own knowledge to be false. It
is easy to stand up a man of straw
and then thump it over, and that is
what some distinguished Republicans
or new nationalist campaigners seem
to be1rncpally engaged in, but they
wllern election night that the
voters of the State know a man of
straw or a scarecrow when they see
one, at least as quick as a crow does.
"Very truly yours,
"W. J. Gaynor."

The first step in controlling corn
weevils is to select the seed corn in
the field, paying \special attention to
the ears that are well covered by the
shuck and if possible that hang with
the pointed end downward. This is
an important precaution, although
not sufficient to fully protect the corn
in the cribs.
Treatment of Corn in Cribs.
Carbon bisulphide is a colorless li
quid with a strong disagreeable odor.
It vaporizes rapidly at ordinary tem
peratures, is highly inflammable and
when ignited is explosive. It is,
therefore, important to keep away fire
of any kind, whether flame, stove, lan
tern, embers, lighted pipe or cigar.
This chemical Is very widely used at
present, and when the above precau
tions are observed there are no dan
gers from accident. It may be pur
cased at any drug store or chemical
wholesale house, ranging from ten to
twenty-five cents per pound. The
brand tiat has given the best satis
faction in our experimental work is
named Fuma and costs -about ten
cents a pound. The liquid and vapor n
coming from it a.re heavier than air ut
and will sink, therefore the applica- ce
tion is made at the top of the crib p<
and not from below. Fumigation B
should be done on warm days as vola- p.
tilization is slower In cold weather p<
and consequently less effective. It
Assuming that the crib is moderate- Pl
ly tight, it is used at the rate of three
pounds to 100 bushels of grain, or ap- S.
proximately 1,000 cubic feet of space,
the latter being for an empty crib. It
should be repeated in ten days. It
may be distributed in several shallow
vessels, but the simplest way is to
sprinkle it over the top like ,water'
and if blankets are availa;ble the. sur
face of the corn should be covered..A
Where the bin Is open, the best pos- B
sible thing to do is to make it tight.
In case of log cribs, this may be ac
complished by means of canvas tack
ed over the walls.
Where only a small quantity of A
grain Is to be fumigated, such a.s seed
corn or cowpeas usell for seed, it 2ay 'y
be accomplished by pouring It In a
coal oil or molasses barrel. Such a B
barrel will accommodate about three
buhels. Three to five ounces of car
bon bisuiphide is poured over the sur
face and the barrel tightly closed for
twny-orto thirty-six hours. The 1
top of the barrel may be made per
fectly tight by covering it with several ,
burlap bags weighted down with
boards. A permanent covering forA
this purpose may be made by heavily
painting a piece of canvas of proper
size, which is then laid over the open
i ng and a barrel 'hoop dropped over
the tOD to hold it firmly in positon. .
Oarbon bisulphide is not poisonous
nor caustic. It drives the air -from
the space to. which it is applied and,
cause suffocation. When overcome r
by this gas in a building, the symp
toms consist of a dry feeling of the
skin and a streaked headache, accom
paned by dizziness. This will pass
off immediately after a person reach- ,
es the fresh air. It is not advisable
that people affected with heart trou
ble handle this gas to any great ex
Among other methods for controll
ing weevils, lime arnd sale are some
times recommended. These materials
are r't nearly' as effective as fumiga
tion. while the decrease in the pala
t3ahnity of th'e corn, where lime is em- 'I
ploed, makes the use of this material
The use of each does not decrease ir
