Magnificent Reception in
New York, Nov. 4. Judge Parker
returned to New York today from his
Connecticut tour. He will spend the
day at the Hotel Seville, receiving po
litical friends and advisers.
Hartford, Conn.. Nov. 4. Alton B.
Parker, in his swing through the Nut
meg state, yesterday created a sensa
tion by charging that the Standard Oil
company is doing everything In its
power to bring about the election of
the republican ticket.
The mention of the Standard Oil
company in this connection was made
at Meriden, and is the first denial the
democratic candidate has made to the
charge that the Standard Oil company
is preparing to assist financially in
Itrnrnt t 'oriel. von Attack.
At Hartford Mr. Parker said Chair
man Cortelyou retired from his work
in the cabinet to go out into the busi
ness world to collect blood money.
Following up this attack he said the
statute creating the department of
commerce and labor, born as it was of
ii union between the trusts and the re
publican party, affords in scandalous
features no parallel in legislation. He
declared no statute could have been
better deviled for the successful fi
nancing of the election of the republi

Four enthusiastic audiences greeted
Mr. Parker. The candidate left New
York during the forenoon and speed
was slackened at Stamford and South
Norwalk before the special train
reached Bridgeport, where the first
stop was made. The principal speech of
the trip was in Hartford last night,
though other receptions were held in
Bridgeport. New Haven and at Meri

pad dost day of his life when he re
signed from the bench to enter the
present contest. One new subject
taken up was the development of
American shipping. Militarism, tariff,
the trusts, and other issues also were
Pitt lit for (irrntrr Market.
In course of his speech he said:

"Our opponents have the effrontery
to claim that they alone have shown
any desire to oppose these trusts.
Their claim is as false as it is flagrant.
tm far from this being the fact, the
record shows that time and again the
representatives of the democratic par
ty have begun prosecutions under the
so-called Sherman act.
"Attorney General Olney began and
Attorney General Harmon continued the
first of the successful prosecutions un
der the anti-trust law. Attorney Gen
eral Harmon asked for appropriations
to enforce that act. He reported to
congress that witnesses against the
trusts should be exempted from liabil

plea of privilege, but it was not heeded
by a republican congress. He asked
for an appropriation to carry on the
work in both a special and a general
respect, but a republican congress
YALE STUDENTS AT
NEW HAVEN MEETING
At New Haven Mr. Parker address

who crowded the gallery of Music hall
and cheered the candidate. Mr. Park
er was accompanied to the hall by
Judge A. Heat on Robertson, the dem
ocratic candidate for governor.
Mr. I'arker referred to what has been
called the "strtnuous life." but disput
ed the theory that young men should
be strenuous to the point of looking
for a fight. He continued:
"No act that I can think of is more
important than the first vote. In a
greater majority of cases it attaches a
man for all time to one of the political
parties. It is most important, there

PANAMA RECORD IS NOT
CONSISTENT WITH OUR
RECORD IN THE PAST
Hambleton. W. Va., Nov. 4. Henry
G. Davis will make a dozen speeches
today, concluding with a rally in his
home town. Elkins. The first meeting
was held at Hendricks, where the
school children of the place constituted
the feature of the reception to the
candidate. At Parsons, speaking to an
audience which filled the hall, Davis
gave his views on the Panama inci
dent. During the civil war the I'nited
States, he said, had been in the atti
tude of imploring foreign nations not
to recognize the secession of the south
ern states, yet within 4S hours after
the resolution in Panama had been de
cided at a "town meeting." Roosevelt
recognized the new government of
Panama and sent warships to keep
Colombia from coming within ."0 miles
of the isthmus. This. Davis said, was
inconsistent with our past record.
