fair gentlemen. They claim that they have
been misrepresented and that they did not
come here to confuse the public mind on
this Question. I don't think they have many
people in their organization. We have in
our national headquarters over 4W0"names
of people all over the country, the greater
majority of whom I believe are in sym
pathy with the object and purposes of the
American Anti-Imperialist league, but,
of course, you can't tell much about the
sentiments of a number of people when you
get beyond 1W.0UO."
Mr. Mize volunteered some valuable In
formation concerning the league of which
he Is ji prominent member. "The league
Is made up of those lndeiendent voters
throughout the country who usually de
cide presidential elections," he ?atd. "You
will see by glanctng backward that the last
five or six Presidents have been practically
elected by the Independent vote?. The
league is organized by groups of State.
For Instance, the national organization is
the American Anti-imperlallst League,
which l?sued the call for this convention or
congress. It covers a very large portion
of the United States, but there is the New
Krgland Antl-imperlali.t League at liof ton,
which takes care of all the New England
States. That organization has a very large
lollowlng and la one of the oldest leagues
In the held. It was the New England
League which united with the Central
League, of Chicago, in a tall to all Anti
Imperialists throughout the country for the
purpose of forming the big organization
The American Anti-Imperialist League.
.The New England and Central leagues,
however, tili retain their Identity and
carry on their work, thus relieving the na
tional league of a great burden. Then
there is a league In Indiana, recently
formed, which looks after this State In the
matter of supplying literature, etc. The
country is organized by groups of States
Instead of single States. The New York
League cares for its own State and also
for New Jersey, Delaware and other ao
Jacent States. The Philadelphia League
has Pennsylvania and a number of nearby
States. There are ten of the large leagues
and Innumerable smaller organizations
which are rtlMated with them. Many Ger
man Turnverein Socieltes have appointed
delegates and asked for credentials to our
convention of to-morrow and Thursday In
Tomllnson Hall. Several labor organiza
tions have done the same thing, become
associate members and pent delegates to
the congress. The American Antl-lmper-iallüt
League Is a one-idea organization.
It Is only fighting Imperialism. This con
vention which begins to-morrow morning
Is a national congress at which imperialism
and kindred questions may be fully and
freely discussed. What dehnite action, if
any, may be taken by the convention, we
cannot now say. Thre Is nothing cut and
dried about the convention. Each man
will have Jut as much of an opportunity
to declare and enforce his views as any
other man on the floor. I have sent out
about 6ü sets of credentials and expect
many delegates to be In attendance."

"On all occasions when we have held
meetings they have been characterized by
perfect freedom of discussion. More than
all preceding gatherings, this convention
which Is to meet to-morrow is for the free
and full discussion of the whole subject,
and to-morrow the question will be decided
whether a third party candidate should be
nominated, whether we should indorse the
nomination of IJryan or whether we should
simply recommend our friends' to vote
against imperialism In such vay as their
consciences suggest and do piactical work
in doubtful congressional districts. I have
deprecated anything like a pre-judgment
of any of the questions or anything more
than private consultations such as might
be had upon any question. To-morrow

be made, and, of course, although much

individual feelings are. It Is impossible to
tell what the result of the council and

OIT AXD OIT Füll DHYAX.
Slumniwl Zcfnler, n Chicago Lawyer,
Will Vote for Him.
Sigmund Zeisler, an Anti-imperialist Ger
man lawyer 'from Chicago, who is to ad
dress the meeting at Tomllnson Hall to
night In th place of Carl Schurz, has some
very pronounced views on the duties of
the Liberty Congress. Mr. Zehfys a
good-looking man. of medium size, wear
ing a closely cropped beard trimmed to
a point, and dresses in a conspicuously neat
and elegant manner, as becomes a pros
perous attorney of the Windy City. When
seen by a Journal man In his room at the
Bates last night, Mr. Zeisler said:
"I believe that the congress will very
emphatically pronounce against continuing
Mr. McKinley hi power. I understand
that that Is the purpose of practically
every thorough Antl-lmperlallst In the
country. Personally, I feel that the most
cftectlva way to accomplish that result
is to cast our votes directly for Mr. Bryan.
While I do not agree with Mr. Bryan's
views on the silver question, I regard that
Issue as a dead one. Four years ago it
was the paramount question of the cam
paign, and then I voted and worked for
the election of Mr. McKinley. I have no
fear that if Mr. Bryan were elected any
legislation would be enacted injuriously af
fecting the currency. Nor do I b'elleve
that the currency could be affected by
executive action. Whatever may be said
about Mr. Bryan by his opponents, every
one who knows anything about him con
cedes that he Is sincere and honest. I have
no doubt that as President he would hon
estly carry out every law on our statute
books so long as It should continue to
be a law. Believing this. I can see in
this campaign but one issue and that is
the Issue of imperialism. I am so thor
oughly opposed to the policy of Mr. Mc
Kinley and his party on that question that
I have no hesitancy In supporting Mr.
Can Reenter To-Day.
This morning at 9 o'clock near the en
trance of Tomllnson Hall the registration
office of the Liberty Congress will be open
tor delegates to record their names and re
ceive badges. Such of the delegates as bring
with them their return tickets on the rall
lcad can have them signed by an official
who will be In attendance.

Royal Arch of Indiana Is In session at
the Grand Hotel. The Royal Arch is
composed of the liquor dealers throughout
the country, and Is a fraternal organiza
tion The tlrst lodge was organized in this
State in December last, and has at the
present time 3,500 members in twenty-nine
In Indianapolis there are five hundied
members in good standing. Onr delegate
to every fifty members is allowed to at
tend tn? Grand Lodge, and it is expected
that there will be about sixty delegates
In attendance at the present session. The
meeting was called to order yesterday af
ternoon by Grand Valiant Commander L.
D. Cooper. Mayor Taggart was Introduced,
and extended the visitors a welcome to
the city. A temporary organization was
but partially completed, when, on account
of the absence of a number of delegates,
who are expected to arrive this morning,
the session was adjourned until this morn
ing, at which time a permanent organiza
tion for the coming year will be effected.
A partial report made by the secretary
shows that within the last three months
ten new lodges, have been orgonlzed within
the State, all of which are In nourishing
condition. This afternoon the session will
be devoted to a business meeting, and
to-morrow the meeting will come to an
end with a carriage ride over the city in
the afternoon, a trolley ride In the even

TELEGRAM FROM MERRIAM
Akiii? Supervisor Clifford if He Had
Given Out FlRnre.
Census Supervisor Clifford received a tel
egram yesterday from Census Director
Merrlam, at Washington, whjch stated in
substance that ne had been Informed that
Mr. Clifford had given out what purported
to be the census !lgures of Indianapolis,
and asking Mr. Clifford if such information
was correct. Mr. Clifford Immediately
wired Director Mrrritin that he had not
given out any figures as to the po:i .lation
of Indianapolis at all. Under the law, if
Mr. Clifford had given out the census fig
ures of the population of Indianapolis,
which could only have been done by adding
up the totals of the enumerators, he would
have laid himself liable to a fine of CÖ'JO.
Accepting Mr. Clifford's statement as
true, it foilows that If there has been no
leak in the office at Washington the figures
published which purported to be the popu
lation of Indianapolis are simply a more
or less accurate guess.

MANILA, Aug. 12. Newspapers contain
ing the national Democratic platform have
arrived here. The reference therein to
Philippine Independence and to a piotc
torate tend to strengthen the examine anti
American element In its increasing attitude
of delay and obstruction. It Is believed
that radical steps for a settlement here
will be impossible before the election.
Reports from the Visayas islands show
there has been increased activity among
the insurgents there during the last six
weeks. The American losses in the Island
of Pauay last month were greater than in
any month since January last."
General Mojica, in Leyte, and General
Luchan, in Samar. are harassing the gar
risons, shooting into the towns during the
night and ambushing small parties, firing
and then retreating upon the larger bodies.
The rebels possess an ample supply of am
munition and are organized to a consider
able degree. The Americans have garri
soned three towns on Samar island, two of
which shelter a tenth of the original in
habitants, who suffer from the continual
"sniping" of the rebels from the surround
ing hills. The third is without any native
inhabitants, the rebel outposts a mile away
preventing their return to their homes.
General Lucban is punishing the islanders
who have any relations with the Ameri
cans. Cebu Is likewise disturbed.
Barring those who have taken the oath
of allegiance to the United States the rebels
are imprisoned in Manila. When amnesty
was proclaimed it practically was without
etfect, and the expectation that the procla
mation would accomplish much in the un
expired time is daily diminishing.
The banks, under government pressure,
have restored the exchange rate of two
Mexican silver dollars to one gold American
dollar. General Mac-Arthur has ordered the
acceptance of American money for all pub

General Wright. Major IVaUus and others
have returned from a trip to Benguet
province, where they recommend the imme

Several minor engagements occurred last

TOLEDO, Aug. H.-Major Arlington U.
Betts, of Toledo, now in the Philippines,
writes Commodore Tracy, of this city, on
some matters that will be very interesting
to every American citizen who takes an
interest in the coming campaign. He in
closes the Aguinaldo proclamation urging
the election of Bryan. The letter sayfe:
"Tabaco, P. I., July 1.

"You who are at home cannot compre
liend how thoroughly these people are in
lormed on American politics. Through
some bureau of Information they aie kept
perfectly in touch with all political issues
pertaining to the Philippines. Some idea
can be gained of this by the poster which

"When we took the city of Tobaco we
found these posters In every place of any

"The city of Tobaco, with its suburbs.
has about 20,000 Inhabitants, and is one of
the largest hemp ports in Luzon. The cltv
has always been noted for its industrious
and law-abiding citizens, and at the break
ing out of the war they voted not to de
fend the city against the Americans.
"In the early part of the year the Tagalos
came down and painted the city thoroughly
with this circular, and on the strength of
this circular they raised an armv of ?,oo
men in three days, and with the assistance
of these men constructed the admirable de
fenses around the city. So much to the
credit of our countrymen at home.
"Every drpo of blood, both American
and Filipino.' spilled here at Tabaco can
be laid to that circular, the foundation of
which is taken from an American news
paper. In every city and banco that we
have taken we have found a quantity of
clippings from American newspapers.- and
is It any wonder they believe that by hold
ing out a little longer we will give up and
go home? Such a thing now would be im
possible, and all at home must see it that
way. To leave here now would mean the
death of every Filipino In the Islands who
has dared to be friendly to the Americans
"On one thing, it seems to me, both of
the great parties should be united and that
is the rebellion must bo suppressed. If a
Dlank to that effect should be placed in
each of the great parties' platform, this
trouble over here would soon end. but as it
la now they have every reason In the world
to think that, as they express it. if the
great Dr. Bryan i elected the Americans
will leave the islands at once.
This poster I Inclose to you speaks much
louder than anything I can say, and I send
it to you that some of my friends who are

the assistance this rebellion receives from
the States it would quickly end.

In quickly bringing this trouble to an end

LONDON. Aug. 11. President Krugcr at
one time made a formal application to the
United States to grant him a sanctuary in
case the necessity for it arose This oc
curred, according to Secretary of State
Reitz. of the Transvaal Republic, the day
Lord Roberts entered Pretoria. The details
of the event have been related to a repre
sentative of the Associated Press by 1 . XS .
Unger. who has just returned from the
Transvaal and who secured the informa
tion from Secretary Reitz and others.
After quoting the secretary as saying Pres
ident Kruger would never take to the
mountains, on account of his age, but
would retreat down the line, finally escap
ing to Portuguese, territory, Mr. Unger said
the day the British entered Pretoria Presi
dent Kruger sent for W. Stanley Hollls, the

No Applicntloit from Hollls.
WASHINGTON. Aug. 14.-U Is said at
the State Department that no formal ap
plication ever has come from Consul Hollls
for a sanctuary In the American consulate
for President Kruger, and that the instruc
tions sent to the consul to confine his en
ergies to his consular duties was not a
result of anv discussion of an asylum for
the Boer President, as the department
was not aware that. Mr. Hollls had vis
lted the President. It is stated also In this
connection that the right of asylum or
sanctuary does not exist as to consulates,
but Is purely a diplomatic Immunity at
a legation or other quarters occupied by
a minister. It appears that some intima
tion on the subject reached the officials
here, but It is said to have not been such a
formal application as would be requisite.
Had formal application oeen made, it
is stated, it would have been passed on
by the President, but nothing communi
cated has called for such action.
MESSAGES FROM ROBERTS.
He Says De Wet Blew Up Three of
LONDON, Aug. 14. Lord Roberts reports
to the War Office under date of Pretoria,
Aug. 13, as follows: "Kitchener reports
from Schoolplaab. eight miles east of Ven-
tersdorp, that De Wet blew up three of his
wagons. Six british prisoners who escaped
from De Wet's camp state that Mr. Steyn
is confined in the camp under surveillance:
and that De Wet was forced to abandon
his ammunition and thirty horses. They al
so confirm the report that Methuen captured
one of De Wet s guns and shelled the main
i onvov efffcuvelj'. Ian Hamilton , tele
graphs that he hopes to be at Blauwbank
to-dav with his main body. Mahon's mount
ed troops are pushing on to the westward."
Another report rrom L.orcJ Roberts, of the
same date, says: "Methuen and Kitchener,
still following De Wet and Steyn. yesterday
reached Modderfonteln, ten miles east of
Ventersdorp. Methuen is in touch with De
Wet's rear guard. Smith-Dorien reports
that the Shropshires recently marched forty-three
miles in thirty-two hours and the
City of London Imperial Volunteers thirty
miles in ten nours, noping to prevent De
Wet from crossing the Krugersdorp-Potch-

Cantrill at 4 o'clock this afternoon in the
Powers trial and Judge James Sims made
the opening argument to the jury for the
defense. Defendant Towers is in such a
nervous and critical condition that his at
torneys filed a physician's affidavit that he
was unable to attend a night session of the
court, fnit Judge Cantrill said a cot could
be provided for him and he could He down
in the courtroom during the speeches.
Powers was able to sit up to-night, how-
Cver. The instructions to the jury are con
sidered by defendant's attorneys as being
entirely too severe and tend to lesson Pow
ers's chances of acquittal, although they
are still confident of a verdict in his favor.
The instructions are as follows:
"The court instructs the jury that a crim
inal conspiracy is a corrupt combination of
two or more persons by concerted action to
do an unlawful act or to do a lawful act
by unlawful means.
The court further instructs the jury
that an accessory before the fact is one
who, being absent at the time the act is
committed, procures, aids, counsels, com
mands, advises or abets another to commit
it, and may be taken, tried and convicted,
although the. person who committed the
act is never identified, apprehended or

time of the shooting or wounding or not,
or whether the identity of the person
shooting and wounding said William Goebel
be established or not: and If the jury shall
find the defendant guilty it ought to fix his
punishment as herein indicated."

except it provides thar. it does not matter
what change, if any, was made by the con
spirators, if any was made, as to their
original designs or intentions or the man

to constitute the guilt of the defendant
ought to be proved to the satisfaction of

Judge Sirm-, in his speech to-night, said
the proof in the case had not borne out the
statements of the case made for the Com
monwealth by T. C. Campbell. He took a
shot at Campbell by saying if the Com
monwealth's attorney had stated the case
he would have stuck to the facts that could
be proved. He dilated at length on Cool
man's testimony that if ihe fall of the Wal
let was 1 13-16 of an inch in passing through
Goebel's body it could only have been fired
