Commercial Gazette Says the ex-
President Had Xothing to Do
NEW YORK, Oct. 13.— The execu-
NEW YORK, Oct. 13.— The execu
tive committee of the good govern
ment clubs issued an address today
setting forth their reasons for op
posing the fusion ticket. They say
that if the committee of fifty had
effected a union on a non-partisan
platform in support of on -political
candidates it would have been ac
ceptable to them. "The address con
"The committee of fifty disregard
ing the resolution under which it
was appointed both from the lead
ers of the " Republicans and of the
Democracy by promises of money
and ' moral . support, made certain
admirable judicial nominations. The
other places on the ticket they con
ceded to be party spoils. So long as
the honorable and wealthy men of
this city are willing to lend the
weight of their names and tihe. power
of their resources in such traffic in an
attempt to purchase government
from the politicians we shall have
corruption by whatever party name
it may be called."
The argument for the fusion ticket
is said to be "choice of evils," one
which was used in 1890 to gain sup
port for the People's Municipal
league, and because of which 50,000
voters stayed away from the polls.
Says the address: "The people
of this city cannot close their eyes
to the fact that -the committee of
fifty has made an alliance with
Piatt They remember that last
winter Piatt's machine refused to
grant police reform, defeated all ef
forts to reform the public schools,
derided the very principle of civil

representatives had embodied in the

a simple and effective ballot law,and
imposed upon you a law framed to
disfranchise independent voters and
facilitate jobbery at the polls." -

Harrison Did Nothing on the

A great deal has recently appeared
respecting the attitude of President
Harrison toward the McKinley tar
iff at the time of its adoption.
It is contended that in the capa
city of president, Gen. Harrison op
posed the adoption of schedules as
high as those in the McKinley act,
and that he entered a protest against
them to those who had the measure
One prominent Republican news
paper has stated recently that the
McKinley tariff defeated Harrison's
re-election and that this fact is the
cause of Harrison's feelings toward
McKinley. Another influential Re
publican newspaper In' the West an
nounced that during the considera
tion of the McKinley bill President
Harrison summoned its author and
Speaker Reed and possibly other
party leaders and warned them
against the adoption of such high
The Commercial Gazette is in posi

are untrue and misleading. Ex-
President Harrison deserves' neither
censure nor praise on account of
the McKinley tariff law. He took
no part in drafting or the considera
tion of the measure. No feature of
the law so far as those who com-
piled it are aware, represented his
particular views or met with his
Repeatedly President Harrison,
when asked by those drafting the bill
what he thought about it, stated
that the details should be left to
those in charge of the measure;
that they were responsible to the
president and were most familiar
with the subject in hand. He of-
fered no advice.
When the bill went to the White
house for his signature, the presi-
dent did not, so far as is known,
show any "displeasure with the law.
If the law was ever held responsible
for the defeat of 1892, President Har-
rison should stand blameless.

Claims Made That Durrant Has
Claims "Made That Dun-ant Has
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 13.— Now
that Durrant has told his story on
the witness stand and has made an
j swers to all the accusations im-
plied by the cross-questions of the
prosecution, an impression exists
among those who have watched the
trial closely that there is something
to come which will perhaps have
more effect on the minds of the jury-
men as regards the guilt or inno
cence of the defendant than any-
thing that has gone before. This
feeling is due to the confidence with
which District Attorney Barnes put
a series of startling questions re-
lating to a conversation held by
Durrant with a newspaper reporter,
Miss Carrie Cunningham, at the
county jail within the past week,
and also touching on the address
and indorsement of a certain en-
velope which may or may not have
contained a confession.
The prosecution witnesses will seek
to show by their testimony that Dur-
rant made admissions which destroy
the whole fabric of defense. These al
leged admissions are taken by the
prosecution as coming from the one
person on earth who knows all that
occurred beneath the belfry of Eman-
uel Baptist church on the afternoon of
April 3. The record of What passed
at the county jail between 'Miss Cun-
ningham and Duprrant is thus told by
the prosecution, which is in possession
of the full facts. On the eve of Sept.
22 Miss Cunningham visited Durrant
at the county jail, and during the
course of their conversation Durrant
showed her a small envelope, which
bore the following addresses and in-
dorsement: ; 7: .7
"Messrs. Dickinson & Deupry: To
be opened in case I am convicted. To
j be returned to me in case I am ac-
quitted." Durrant told the young lady
that the envelope contained a com-
plete statement of all that had oc
curred at the Emanuel- Baptist church
on the afternoon of April 3. He said
that it had been written in order that
j his attorneys might know the facts in
the event of him being convicted of
the murder of Blanche Lamont. On
the following evening, Sept. 23. Miss
Cunningham again visited Durrant at
the county jail, and was there shown
a large envelope addressed like the
other and smaller one. Durrant told
her that the contents of the other
envelope had become jammed up and
that he had transferred the written
statement to the larger envelope. 7 V
On. the morning of Oct. 5 Miss Cun-
ningham held a conversation with
Durrant at the county jail, and during
the course of that. conversation and in
answer to questions asked him by the
young lady, he said that about 5 on
the afternoon of April 3 he ascended
the space between the ceiling and the
roof of the Emanuel Baptist church
for the purpose of fixing one of the
sunburners. While at work he heard a
noise which at once attracted his at-
tention. It seemed to come from that
part of the building where the belfry
is situated. He walked along in the
direction from which the sound came
and peered through the opening that
connects the space above the ceiling
with the interior of the belfry tower.
While In this position he saw the body
of Blanch Lamont lying on the sec-
ond landing of the belfry stairs. He
repeated the details of the circum-
stances, and added that Blanche La-
mont was murdered on the second
landing of the belfry stairs. Miss Cun-
ningham then said: 'Oh, yes, it was
from the second landing of the stairs
that the blood dripped down and stain-
ed the cloth-covered picture frame on
the floor below. Durrant replied that
there was no blood on the cover of the
picture frame, as 'we have had the
stains analyzed and find they were
made by water, not blood.* An official
inspection was made of the cloth-coy-
ered picture frame referred to as being
stained by blood. This inspection re-
vealed the fact that the piece of the
cloth cover, one inch by two inches in
size, had been cut from the frame in
the center of one of the largest
blotches or stains. As thfs was not
done by any cne connected with tho
prosecution, the inference is drawn
that it was done by some one inter-
ested in the defense,, and that it was
for the purpose indicated by Durrant's
alleged statement regarding the an-

Receiver Thinks Uncle Sam Onght
OMAHA, Neb., Oct. 13.— Oliver W.
Mink, one of the receivers of the Union
Pacific, arrived from Boston yesterday
and will remain here a few days. Re-
garding the reorganization and affairs
of the Union Pacific Mr. Mink said:
"One of the difficulties which will, of
course, confront the reorganization
committee is the debt due or becoming
j due to the United States. Generally
this debt is spoken of at its face, say
$52,000,000. The fact that It is secured
by a second lien only and there 43 no
easy way of determining what It
would sell for if divided into independ
ent bonds dealt in dally on the princi-
pal exchanges of this country and in
Europe, renders the problem the more
difficult of solution. If the.debt were
represented by individual bondholders
they could, under the conditions which
now prevail, resolve themselves into a
committee which would be charged
with the power of negotiating terms of
settlement Under such circumstances
the debt would probably sell for very
much less than Its "face and in any
negotiations carried forward by those
representing the Hen holders its real
value and not the book account or
face of the debt would, of course, form
the basis of negotiation. Such is the
basis of all other negotiations of this
"The extent of the government's Hen
which is generally referred to as a
second lien, is known to^be quite un-
certain. It is doubtful whether it
reaches to or covers the valuable ter
minals in Omaha Council Bluffs and
Kansas City,, while it is certain that
it does not convey any part of the
Kansas-Texas line west of a line nine-
ty-four miles west from Kansas City
and thence by the way of Denver to
"It is not possible for me to speak
with certainty concerning the present
plans or purposes of the reorganiza
tion. Any comprehensive plan which
will place the Union Pacific property
on a firm financial footing with rea
sonable promise of a fair return and
provide for necessary development in
the near future, ought to commend it-
self to the security holders as well as
to the United -States." =; ... <■:_-_

CHICAGO, Oct. 13.-Col. James
Pomeroy Sanford, traveler, orator,

return to his home at Wheaton to-
day broken in health and mind. He
was stricken with a malady having
the symptoms of poisoning in Col-
orado last week and the attack was
followed by a sudden lapse of intel
Col. Sanford's breakdown is traced
by some of his more intimate friends
to a strange meeting which occurred
Nov. 11. Kv—
He was attending a reception given
him at Morristown, Pa. . The guests
begged the noted entertainer to re
count some of his personal reminis-
censes. He was asked how he came
to be such a world-wide rover. He
told them he had been married three
times and "had been every place on
earth at least three times," and was
then preparing to cross the ocean
for at least the twentieth time.
There was a young woman present,
Miss Anna Sanderson, a visitor from
Tioga Center, N. V., whose face
seemed to attract the speaker, and
who was aparently drawn to him.'
She listened attentively to his story
of marrying when a mere boy and '
going to South America on a tour
and learning while there that his
young wife had died. The tray-
eler said his letters to the family
were never answered," and he had'
never gone back.
• "My mother was born in Steuben
county, New York," . spoke up Miss
Sanderson, "and her father bore exact
ly the same name as yourself."
..MEETS HIS GRANDCHILD. .
"Indeed— (remarkable !" exclaimed
the traveler, with a. start V'"
"But mother never saw him— grand-
pa was killed, they said, In South
| America before she was born." Yv
The man of the world led attention
to anopther topic, then said-he was not
feeling well; and, a few minutes later,
excusing himself, went to his room. **-'
There was a knock at his door, and
the stupefied man opened it, admitting
Miss Sanderson— flushed, . short *of
breath, and unattended." ••: ■■■
"I have been thinking it over," the
girl said in a voice- that bespoke' her
agitation, "and I have come to tell
you that I think you are my grand
"And I have thought, my child, for
ten minutes that you are my grand-
daughter!" " "~
Col. Sanford took the woman in his
arms and wept In a chance sentence
he learned that his first wife was now
dead. He did not ask how long.
By appointment Col. Sanford met
his granddaughter at Ontario Center
N. V., Aug. 21. He was then formally
introduced to. his daughter, Mrs. Wash-
ington Sanderson, a handsome matron
of forty-four years, whom he had not
only never seen, but through the. first
forty-three years of her life had never
suspected such a person born. i
The meeting agitated him * deeply •
The dread was so intolerable that he
did not learn the exact truth as to his
first wife's death. He knew only that
she had lived years after he thought
her dead— that he had never moved to
reclaim her-that he had remarried.
BREAK HIM DOWN. 7-7
These reflections, ' Col.' Sanford's
friends say, are responsible for his
waning intellectual power.
Col. Sanford's Western engagements-
nave been canceled, and it is said his
engagements with the Star Lecture
Bureau of New York, which did not
open till Sept. 21, may also be can-
celed. Information as to the gravity
of his case or hope of recovery has
not been given the wife, who awaits
his return with fearful anxiety. -
Mrs. Sanford's suspicions were first
aroused by her husband's letters
Twelve days ago the lecturer wrote
his wife from Colorado Springs that he
thought he had been poisoned eating
sardines. Two , days later he wrote he
had been 111 but danger was then over.
The wife wrote and telegraphed him to
come home if still ailing. She also
wrote for Information to John M
Dickey, of Colorado Springs, under
whose engagement Col. Sanford was
then in the West. Up to last night no
response had been received.
In. Col. Sanford's succeeding letters
he wrote he did not know what spell
had seized him for he could remember
no name but hers. The next letter was
incoherent Another followed in great-
er jumble, and Friday night a telegram
announced Col. Sanford's collapse and
said he had started home.

cago office of the general freight au
ditor of the Northwestern railroad. ! I

Col. Sanford is known as America's
greatest traveler. In his wanderings
he has been in every country of the
world, and has met an incredible num
ber of the earth's prominent person
ages. S> He was described in a London
journal as "the restless American who
looked forward with dismay to the day
When there would be no country left for
him to explore."
His knowledge of Russia, Sibrria and
Northern China has been vast, and
upon -the Mediterranean countries he
was called an authority. His lectures
dwelt upon the places and p=ople he has

suspend hostilities. Our troops there
upon occupied the capital. I made an

heavy grade the brake broke, and
it was soon beyond the control of

terrific, and when a sharp curve
over the foothill was reached, the
car made a wonderful leap, landing
trucks ■- uppermost in McCarthy's

while before assistance reached the
sufferers, who were wedged tightly
in the wreck, which was almost com-

was beyond control, he lay down on
the floor and advised others to fol-
low his example. The killed were
found wedged under the roof of the
