"It is in no spirit of bitterness, bow
ever, that I add that there are a few
men, once prominent in Democratic ranks
who, in the midst of the stormy scenes
of this mighty contest, remained un
moved and silent except that now and
then they took occasion to furnish aid
and comfort to the enemy by making
public denial that they were in sympathy

everywhere that thy need not be sur

they may seek to thrust upon the mil

good fight and kept the faith shall fail

The speaker asserted that the rank and
file of the party in 1900 was the same
rank and file voting for bimetallism and
tariff reform in 1884, 1888, and 1892. "It
is the rank and file," he continued,
"which tired of the domination of a few
men in 1S96. literally took possession of
the Democratic party and made it In
every snse a party of the people."
In concuslon he said: "Speaking for
he Democracy of Indiana, and I be
lieve for the iank and file of the Domo
cracy everywhere, I want to say to all
men who are interesting themselves in
party organization or re-organization
that any attempt in any quarter at any
time to belittle the splendid and heroic
service rendered by that magnificent
leader and Grand Tibune of the people,
. J. Bryan, In the campaigns of 1896 and
1900, or to cast stigiria or reproach upon
him in any degree, however slight, will
meet with quick and stern rebuke from
the millions of Democrats who followed
his banner in these memorable contests.
While the rank and file of the great
Democratic party has honored other lead,
ere, it loves William J. Bryan, and will
tolerate no action which contemplates h's
humiliaton or looks to hs retirement from
the field of active politics."

Fontela, a refugee from the Philippine i
Islands, and first president of the Madrid
Junta has just arrived in New York from
"I came here to be free," he explained.
"It was impossible for me to be other '
than a slave to America when I lived
with my wife and fi.ve children in Manila,
so I have come where I won't have to be
subservient. Americans are not subser- j
vient to Americans and while I don't ap- i

American than an enslaved Filipino."
Senor Fontela was a lawyer and editor
in Manila. When the war began he was
Aguinaldo's chief adviser. Driven out of
the Philippines by the American soldiers
he fled with his wife and five small chil
dren to Madrid. There he established the
first Filipino junta and was made its

Aguinaldo is dead. This is nonsense. He

Regarding the formation of a new par

Several Witnesses Testify as
ALL DESIRE THE TRUTH
Brother of the Deceased
Take the Stand Today,
West Point, N. T., Dec 26. After a
Christmas recess of three days the mili
tary court of inquiry resumed its investi
gation of alleged brutal hazing at the
West Point Military academy this after
noon. Twelve witnesses were examined
by Generals Brooke, Bates and Clous.
They were all of the present first class
and classmates of Former Cadet Boots.
The witnesses were all questioned as
to whether they had held any conversa
tion with other cadets as to the withhold
ing of any testimony at the investigation,
and they all denied that such a thing oc
curred. They said that, on the contrary,
all the cadets were anxious that every
thing should be told.
Tomorrow Congressman P. O. Phillips
of Cleveland will be a witness in refer
ence to the statement made that he came
to the academy n 189S in order to have
his boy protected from hazing.
The first witness called was Cadet B.
F. Brown of Virginia, now of the first
class. Cadet Brown said that he had
taken part in "feet inspection," which
consisted in dropping hot candle grease
on the bare feet cf fourth class men.
He said Cadet Breth was never drag:?' d
out of his tent or put In a straight-jacket.
"What do you make fourth class men
"Nothing In barracks but bracing," an
swered the witness. "In camp I have a
fourth class man act as special duty
man. He oleaned my gun and bayonet
and carried water and cleaned my tent."
The witness described how cadets had
been made to run down the company
streets while others threw water on
them This was called taking a bath.
"Did you ever see a man braced or ex
ercised to the limit of his power of en
durance?" asked General Brooke.
"I could not say, sir, but I have seen
them pretend to faint In order to be ex
cused from going any further with the
"What was the most exhaustive thing
you yourself were required to do as a
fourth class man?"
"Eagltng, sir," was the reply.
"Describe it, please."
"It is a modification of the setting up
drill for back and legs."
"Was it on account of the danger of
hazing or" because they wished to avoid
scandaf outside the academy that caused
the classes to do away with the prac-
tloes?" asked General Brooke.
"There was no danper. sir. and we vot-
ed to do away with the hazinsr because
of the stories published about it," replied
"What besides bracing do voh require
a fourth class man to do?" inquired G-yi-
"We have them do ridiculous forma-
tlons, one of whieh we call 'barnyard.'
The men are designated by names of
barnyard animals, and when they are
told to form they imitate the noises made
by the animals."
"Do you make them do anything you
"No: they are told to do it, and they
generally do all they are told."
"How do you account for this implicit
The witness seemed to be puzzled for
a moment and then said: "Well, when I
-was a fourth class man the idea of refus-
jnr to do all I was requested never en-
tered my head, sir."
"Was there any brutality?"
"No, sir; there was no spirit of brutal
ity In it. If there was brutality by word
the fourth clasp man would resent it."
"Then he would have to fight," suggest
ed General Brooke.
"And get beaten?"
"No. not always, sir; the fourth elm
men have won fights."
"Do you know of any men being tw
ciflly prepared or Instructed In fl?ht
inr" "No, sir."
"Was Cadet Keller prepared for his
fight with Cadet Booz "
"No, sir: Keller was a rather poor
boxer," was the reply.
"Did Keller ever have any other flint
before he fought Booz? asked General
"Then he was not known as a fightin?
ked General Brooke.
Those questions were evidently prompt
ed bv the receipt ;f a newnper -i-ping
sent' to the court during the r-hrfstma-s
recess, which stated, that unless a man .
was skilled in "boxing he had no chance '
at West Point against cadets with bruis- .
Ing ability. '
Cadet W. T. Smith of Marv'and wis
the next witness. H said he h-d a
fourth class man to make his bed. cl-an
Ms gun. carry water an3 do other work
for him In his tent.
"Did you ever know of a cade-' Vimr j
dragged from his bed and ojt of hi
tent to the street?" :
"There was always bedding under him,
sir." was the reply. i
The witness described a number of ri-
dlculous things done by fcu-th ,-ln rren
at the bidding of yprr -lass rr-T. He .

"Two cadets are seated facs to face
with a bowl of molasses between ifeem,"
explained the witness, "each being onp

structed to feed each other.'
- "Suppose a cadet would refuses to do
what he is required ?' said General
"He would bs called out, sir."
"That means he would have to fight?"
The witness explained that the fourth
class man might he excused from fight
ing if the upper class committee decided
that the order which, he bad disobeyed
was one which should not have been
Cadet Edward Caafield, Jr. cf New
York said that the Booz-KeUer fight
. was the outcome of a retort Booz made
to a cadfet while he was on guard duty.
"What was the retor$ "
" think it was Go to heU, sir."
In reply to General Bates as to
whether there was a sentiment among
the cadets to withroid information from
the court the witness said: "Directly to
the contrary, sir, the sentiment is to have
everything come out."
Cadet Jerome G. Pillow, of Arkansas,
testified that fights were usually the out
come of the refusal on the part of fourth
class men to do something ia had been
told to do.
tPrince A. Oliver of Illinois knew Cadet
Breth. He said that Breth had told him
that he (Breth) had, undergone a pain
ful operation before he came to the aca
demy. The witness said that Breth was
treated the same as the rest of the class.
The witness had been hazod in barracks
on Saturday and Sunday, Its he only ar
rived in September after the encamp
ment. He said that he was told that he
was hazed so that no part of his edu
cation should be neglected.
Witness went on to say that ostracism
from the society of the oadet corps
would become so unbearable that the
man would have to resign. Cadet was
left very much alone after his fight with
Kel!er. This was on accounut of his
Cadet Copley Bnoe. of New York, who
was one of the sentinel? at the Booz
Keller fight, testified that Booz came up
th hill toward the fort in a very con
fident manner. At the first round Booz
seemed to have the better of the fl-srht,
but as soon as he got a blow in the eye
it took all the sand out of him and 'he
laid down. The fight lasted about a
j round and a half. Neither man knew
j much about boxing. There was nothing
seiAntific about it.
I Oadet William Tidball. of Virginia,
. swore that on one occasion when in camp
j in 1W Cadet Breth was exhausted from
j exercising and he saw some of the cadets
giving him whisky. The witness said
' that he had eaten qulnino pills when he
j was a fourth class man.
1 Cadet George M. Russell, of New
, Hampshire, said ho had exercised Booz
i and had braced him.
The court adjourned at 6 O'clock to re
convene at 9 o'clock tomorrow.
j Horace Booz, of Bristol. Pa., a brother
of Oscar L. Booz, who died: three weeks
! ago, will also be here tomorrow, and It
is understood that he is coming here to

EXTRADITION WITH CUBA

nient Thompson Case.
Washington, Doc 95. Inquiry at the
; state department develops the fact that
1 no application has peen filed there for
the extradition to Cuba of Charles J.
Thompson, arretted in Detroit for for
aery committed in Cuba. It is assumed
bv the officials that the governor of
Michigan has sought to
trat thi" ct- '

the earlier stages of the Xeley ca.-e.
There is precedent for this application.
About a year ago the New Orleans au-

ou!lt!on. In that case, also, the papers
passed direct'.y "between the state off!- !

WIDOW WILL TESTIFY
Stewart Fife Gives important
Item of Evidence,
St Joseph, 3a, Dec. 3. Sensational
evidence was adduced today at the cor
oner's inquest over the body of the late
millionaire, Frank iRichardson, who was
shot and killed by some person as yet
unknown, In the hailway of his home in
Savannah Christmas ere. Frank Rich
ardson, Jr., tho 14-year-okl son of the
victim, testified that his father, at the
storo of Richardson & Fife, inquired if
Mrs. Richardson was at a certain Christ
mas entertainment. Tho hov said she
was not, and then his father asked him
to go home and see if she was there.
But as the boy demurred, his father went
instead, and a few minutes later he was
1 found dead. Stewart iFfe, Mr. Richard-
son's partner, said Mr. Richardson had
I accused him of being unduly intimate
with Mrs. Richardson. This accusation
j was made four months ago. The inquest

WHERE IS PAT CROWE
Omaha's Great 'rimlnnl Has Mado
Omaha, Neb., Dec 26. There have been
no new developments in tho Cudahy kid
napping case during the last twenty-four
hours, so far as concern the movements
of the bandits in this city and South
The mystery of finding the pony at
Pacifio Junction, Iowa, twenty miles
south of Omaha, has not yet been clear
ed up, those trying to identify the pony
as the one used by the kidnappers bing
unable to decide whether or not it was
the same animal.
The police, however, are inclined to the
belief that there is importance in the re
port coming from St Joseph. Ma, stat
ing that Pat Crowe has been seen -there
as late as Monday, and Chief of Police
Donahue Is now investigating that re
port. Should It prove true, the chief
thinks it probable that Crowe is now in
that vicinity. There la no real evidence
adduced that Crowe was in any way con
nected with the kidnapping, but the chief
thinks that his past record and his ac
tions since the Cudahy event are very
strong reasons for securing his arrest
It is known that Pat Crowe waa seen
in South Omaha scarcely twenty hours
before the abduction of Eddie. Cudahy.
On Monday night. December IT, a Tieall
known citizen of South Omaha conversed
with him for nearly an hour. Pat was
in a reminiscent mood and recalled some
of the chief adventures of his picturesque
career. Just before they parted Pat was
questioned concerning his future plans
and laughingly replied: "Oh, I haV
something big on; you'll hear from me
soon." At that time this was viewed as
an idle boast
RUDYARD KIPLING BEATEN
Ills KfTorts to UcHtriUn a Kival Buds
New York, Dec 26. -Judge Lacomb in
Kipling had not established a common
law trade mark, and there was no sug
gestion of a statutory trade mark.
"The proposition advanced," said the
court, "is that an author whose mental
productions, prose, verse and title, have
ben given to the world without copy
right o that anyone is free to reprint
and sell the whole or any part of them,
may nevertheless regulate the manner in
which such printed matter may be group
ed and entitled, and may restrain any ap
plication of the title selected, otherwise
than as he usd or uses it It would
seem that the measure of relief which
authors may obtain against unauthorized
publication of their works must be found
in the copyright statutes."

South Africa give rise tot renewed anx

Cape Colony extends further -outh than
it did last December and lord Kitchener
does not appear to have had mach suc
cess as yet in driving back the invaders.
The war office had received no news
last evening of th reported capture of
yeomanry near Britstown.
A Burghersdorp dispatch has a myster
ious reference to "an unfortunate mis
taking of the enemy tor Brabont'a horse

from Johannesburg, has lMud a procla

until such time as guerrilla warfare has
sufficiently abated to admit of their re-
