CT-. LAST EDITION THUESDAT evening. TOPEKA, KANSAS, OCTOBER 11, 1900. THURSDAY EVENING. TWO CENTS. I) f f; I 'f .' v s 1 L1R. VILLARD GONE Star "Witness In Grimes Case is Sent Away State Treasurer Procured a Pass For Him. HE TOLD THE STORY. Claimed That He Would Hare Ilevealed the Inside. Now In Missouri Ueyond Reach of Summons. The prosecution in the case againrt Frank Grinds professes to be able to show that Frank Willard has made a statement to the effect that he person ally paid Air. Grimes the interest money on state funds, and an effort will be made to also prove that Mr. Grimes, personally, procured the transportation upon which Mr. Willard rode out of town on the Santa Fe. It is charged today that Mr. Grimes superintended the departure of Mr. "illard from the city, because the tes timony which Willard woul give would be damaging to him. This Gi lines laughs at. and pretends that there is no truth in the statements of his connection with Willard's de parture. But the prosecution seems to be very confident of establishing these facts when the taking of depositions be gins. There are two interpretations of the connection of Mr. Willard with this case. The first, which was circulated last night, is to the effect that Mr. Willard. who for many years was cashier of the Merchants' National bank, told of his dealing with Mr. Grimes to Frank L. Brown and II. J. Bone, assistant "United States attorney for Kansas. Mr. Willard is Quoted as having said to these men that he responded to a call for a meeting with Mr. Grimes, made by the state treasurer, and at this con ference agreed to pay Mr. Grimes 2 per cent, for the use of the state money left in that bank. As told by a man who claims to have reliable information, Mr. Willard said to Brown and Bone that he, personally, at the expiration of each period of three months, figured up the amount of money due Mr. Grimes and carried it to the office of the state treasurer. Then the story poes that Grimes heard of the plan to serve notice for a depo sition on Willard. It is said that from the Topeka club Mr. Grimes sent for the transportation which Willard used going- out of Topeka the morning of the day upon which -the prosecution had elected to have him summoned for the purpose of giving testimony Saturday. But Mr. Willard is out of the reach of the process of the district court, and unless he can be induced to return his testimony will not at this time be avail able. The other story, as told by friends of Mr. Grimes, is that Bone and Brown at tempted to extract from Wiliard an ad mission that he had paid Grimes, but that Willard had denied any such re lations with the treasurer. The connection of Mr. Willard in the case was responsible for the officers of the Merchants' bank being the first sum moned for testimony. The prosecution evidently believes in the theory that Willard first made the arrangement with Grimes on the part of the bank, and that the present management of the bank has continued the payment to the treasurer. Whatever may be the circumstances surrounding this incident in the case, the prosecution seems comident of obtaining from the officers of the Merchants' Na tional bank depositions which will sus tain the petition filed in the suit for re covery. W. A. Ij. Thompson, president of this bank and F. W. Freeman, cashier, would not deny in an Interview r publication that money had been paid to Grimes, but they were careful to say that no money had been paid to Mr. Grimes "as interest on daily balances." "Mr. Thompson and Mr. Freeman will tell the truth on the witness stand." said one of the attorneys representing the prosecution today, "and we will prove by them, we think, that the bank has paid Grimes, personally or through a third party, money for the use of the state funds." As the petition contains no reference to "daily balances" it is held by the prosecution that the orncers of the bank answered correctly when they, claimed no interest had ben paid on "daily bal ances." The prosecution is confident of prov ing the case which has been brought, "but until the taking of depositions be f?ins.only gossip and speculation is avail able. An effort Is now being made to divert the attention from Treasurer Grimes to Cyrus Leland by claiming that Leland Instigated the suit. The important ques tion now before the people is not wheth er Mr. Iceland or some one else instigated this suit but "Did Mr. Grimes get the money?" No denial has yet been made by Mr. Grimes. ME. PIPP'S WARNING. Republican Editor Called Attention to Violations of Law la April. The Osage County Chronicle, edited by E. G. Pipp, a prominent Republican, sounded the following warning on April 26: "Can a party afford to overlook and condone in its own officers, that which it condemned in its opponents? "The treasurer of the state of Kansas has been guilty of handling the funds of the state in a manner contrary to law, and the Republican party will have it to face in the campaign. "The governor has been so busy talk ing over the stat- that he hasn't had time lately to make an examination; and as near as we can learn there has been no examination since February 13, Ift'X). unless it was made during the past week. At the last examination the state board reports funds in the Topeka banks as follows: Bank of. Topeka $192,184.70 Central National Bank 20S.T1.S0 Merchants National Bank Iy5.926.39 First National Bank 2.502.20 State Savings Bank 11.6S0.40 Total J701.015.19 "An examination of the sworn state ments of these banks discloses no state funds. "Take the sworn statement of the cashier of the Bank of Topeka for in stance. It shows J29.614.1S of county funds; S1.2SS.521.01 of individual deposits, but no state funds; and if the state funds are there they are carried as individual deposits of the state treasurer. Not one of the five banks, show a. cent of state funds in their reports, yet it is asserted by the state officials that the state treasurer has J701.015.19 there. "Now, a very pertinent and Important question in this connection is. What is done with the interest on these funds? "Two per cent is an established rate for banks to pay on daily balances for county funds. The First National Bank and the Burlingame Bank pay the coun ty that rate. Kvery bank does. "Two per cent on J701, 015.19 is J14, 020 ji interest. That is an income of J1.16X.90 a month. What does Treasurer Grimes dr with this snug little sum? Does he donate it to his friends in the banks, does he keep it or w hat does he do Uh it? It is for him to explain be fore he asks the party and the state to honor him with another term. "This explanation is doubly needed from the fact that last fall when the state was paying 6 per cent Interest on warrants stamped 'Not paid for want of funds' the state treasurer had nearly a half million dollars on deposit in these banks. "Many Republican papers including the Chronicle criticised the Populist state treasurer severely for merely stamping the warrants. What explana tion can our own treasurer give us to make to our readers? Or does he ex pect us to merely close our eyes and let it pass? "As the matter now stands be Is too much of a load for the party to carry. He should do one of two things: either explain his course, or step gracefully aside and permit the party to nominate a man who will not be as a stone about its neck. "We have no apologies to offer for our statement regarding the conditions of the funds that are supposed to be in the state treasury. The Chronicle did what it could to help elect Mr. Grimes. By the work of Republicans.Osage coun ty alone made one-fifteenth of the gain that elected him to handle the funds. We feel that the people have a right to know exactly what he does with them." J. G. WATERS TALKS. Says Mr. Grimes Will Not Be Per mitted to Hold Office If Elected. J. G. Waters, attorney in the Grimes case, made the following statement to day: "There seems to be a disposition on the part of the Capital to shift the bur den of the Grimes suit to the shoulders of Leland. Mr. Leland is in nowipe re sponsible for the bringing of this suit; but if he were, as a Republican he ought to be proud of it. No higher tribute could be paid to him as a Republican or as a citizen of the state, and it is no credit to any Republican paper or any other paper to seek to justify or ex cuse Mr. Grimes for his acts, if they are unlawful. If Mr. Grimes is guilty of the charges alleged in the petition he cannot hold the office of state treas urer if elected, and no Republican from a party standpoint should aid or assist in the election of such a candidate. The fact is not disputed that large sums of money belonging to the state are kept in the Topeka banks. This is shown by the reports of the examining board, consisting of the governor, secretary of state and state auditor. "To say that this money is In the banks as checks for collection is too absurd for serious consideration. It is there as deposits or loans, and the fact that it is there is absolute proof that Mr. Grimes has violated the law. Sec tion 6929 of Dassler's General Statutes, of Kansas. 1899, makes the deposit or loan with any company, corporation or individual of any of the public money in the hands of the state treasurer a crime, and provides that such action by the state treasurer is a conversion of such, funds and an embezzlement thereof, whether the treasurer receives interest thereon or not "with or without in terest," as this section reads. Mr. Grimes is guilty on his own statement. What, then, is the Justification of any per?ion, or paper, whether Republican, Democrat or Populist, in trying to con done the act of Mr. Grimes? No party should try or seek to elect to office any man who is disqualified to hold it if elected. "The laws of Kansas are made to be obeyed, and any party which seeks to justify, or even to excuse, their viola tion is unworthy of the suffrage of any honest citizen. Enough has already been shown by Mr. Grimes' admissions to justify the Republican party in tak ing his name from the ticket. I would venture the opinion that if by any un fortunate circumstance Mr. Grimes should be elected he will never be per mitted to hold the office. Does any one believe that Mr. Grimes has violated the law, as above shown, without, some sub stantial reward for so doing? Of course not. As attorney in the case I believe that the evidence will sustain the charges in the petition." GETTING TOGETHER. Secretary Long and Armor Makers Confer Again. Washington. Oct. 11. Secretary Long has had another conference with the representatives of the Bethlehem and Carnegie steel companies respecting the placing of contracts for J15,000,000 worth of armor plate for the navy. As before,. Mr. Linderman represented the Bethle hem company while Mr. Schwab looked out for the Carnegie interests. The con ference lasted nearly an hour. While it was not conclusive in its results the par ties to it were each and all under the impression that they had succeeded in getting nearer to one another, while as far as the navy department is concern ed, it is believed that there is no longer the necessity confronting it of building an armor plant, w hich was the alterna tive provided in the act of congress in the event of failure to secure armor from the private makers at the prices named in the act. There will be another conference in the near future. Beats the World. Washington, Oct. 11. A cablegram received from Commissioner General Peck at Paris.contains an announcement of the final results obtained by the var ious countries in form of awards at the Paris exposition. The Vnited States re ceived 2.4,5 awards. Germany 1.S26. Great Britain 1.727 and Russia 493. The United States leads not only in the grand total but also in all grades of awards from grand prizes to merely honorable men tion. Change of Weather. The weather men think it nearly time for some sort of a change, so the fore cast is slightly changed today. The official announcement is "fair tonight. Friday partly cloudy." The maximum temperature Wednes3ay was 63. The temperature this morning at 11 o'clock was 53. The minimum was 39. The wind has been south, wafting along at about three miles an hour.

Next Session Will Be Held In the Capital City. Delegates Fail to Agree Upon Another Place. At the meeting Wednesday afternoon of the forty-third annual session of the grand lodge of Odd Fellows of Kansas, the last two hours were spent in a heated fight over the proposition to al low the scarlet degree members to vote for the grand lodge officers in their sub ordinate lodges. A strong plea was made, and the prop osition came near carrying. Five-sixths of the members of the grand body are new members, this being the first time they have held seats in the convention. These members not being experienced and not up on the law of the sovereign grand lodge, were easily influenced, and only after a couple of hours of i4 12 . ' I ii' 1 r J. W. Haughey, who -will be installed hard work was it shown that the prop osition was in direct conflict with the law of the sovereign grand lodge. The resolution laid over from last year to amend the constitution regarding the term of representatives to the grand lodge was again brought up. The reso lution seeks to change the term of the representatives from one year to two years. The proposition was defeated by an overwhelming vote. It was the idea of the representatives to not place any thing in the way of a possible future representative to the grand lodge from having "his turn." The grand master and grand secre tary were instructed to work for the passage of a bill at the next session of the legislature fixing a penalty for the unlawful wearing of the emblems of the order. It was urged that other states were doing this, and that there was no reason why Kansas should not. As there was no election in the sub ordinate lodges for the grand warden, the matter was taken up during the afternoon session Wednesday. The can didates for the office were S. Zi. W"ilson, J. G. Denhollem, J. J. Roll. J. M. John son, J. H. Vanop-. J. F. Kirker and J. B. Dillon. Theresas no election on the first ballot, but on the second ballot J. M. Johnson of Garnett was elected. The contract providing that the West ern Odd Fellow be the official paper was renewed for the ensuing year. The Rebekah assembly donated J25 for the relief of children of poverty-stricken members of the lodge in Galveston. BIG CROWD AT RECEPTION. The crowd began to file into the new Auditorium last evening at about 7:30 and by 8:30 the great hall was nearly filled. The occasion was the jubilee meting of the three branches of the Odd Fellows order, the patriarchs, the Re bekahs and the subordinate lodge. The feature of the evening was the drill by 20 young ladies from Burlin game. This drill was outlined by Capt. Chas. Tufford. an editor from Clifton, Iowa. The drill was worked out by Mr. Tufford and has the approval of the sovereign grand lodge. With the exception of the original team in Clifton, Iowa, the Burlingame team under the instruction of Mr. Drew is the only team that can put this drill on. The drill consists of the formation of the insignia and emblems of the order made by evolutions in marching. Twen ty girls dressed in white with sashes of scarlet, royal purple and pink and green representing the subordinate lodge, the encampment and the Rebekahs respect ively were the participants in the drill. Among the most pleasing emblems formed were the letters I. O. O. F., the three links, the stars and crescent, the letters F. L. and T., the Greek cross, the hollow square and the revolving star. The revolving star was especially good. The evolutions, marches and counter marches would have done credit to a battalion. The young ladies who were in the drill are: Miss Myrtle Canfield, Miss Lulu Leonard, Miss Fannie Jarboe, Miss Blanch Eider, Miss Rosie Burt. Miss Hattie Strowges.Miss Tiliie Fisher, Miss Ella Slusley, Mrs. Dr. Goldman. Miss Mabel Halloch, Miss Bessie Beardsley, Mrs. Grace Hoam, Mrs. E. R. Schenk, Mrs. Rebe Riddle, Miss Kate Roberts, Miss Stella Foster, Miss Lizzie Drew, Miss Ada Nelson, Miss Alberta Leonty, Miss Nellie Drew. U X -Vl.fi V " I f IV'.Ti'V'.'tl V ?(-.' V f V Vy(, , A i The audience voted them a unanimous vote of thanks. John A. Bright, grand master, presid ed over the meeting last night and made a few opening remarks. Capt. Joe Wa ters was to have made the principal speech of the evening but owing to the fact that he was unexpectedly called away on business and unable to get back, this was omitted. Grand Patriarch "W. J. Russell of Kansas City. Kan., briefly discussed the encampment degree. He said: "The en campment degree is the highest in the order although it was the last one ad ded to the order." Ke gave an outline of the history of the order in the United States since it was started in 18.9. J. W. Haughey., the incoming grand master made a short address. Mr. Haughey is optimistic and believes in seeing and appropriating the good things in life. He said that humanity was very much alike no matter in what locality we found ic and that in pass ing through this life we should always look for the roses and always do what was in our power to make others happy. He concluded his talk by telling of the beauties of Odd Fellows-flip in this re spect and making an urgent invitation for all those not already members to join the "best fraternal lodge in exist ence." Mrs. Mary E. King of Burlingame, the president of the Rebekah assembly made a short talk in which she explain ed the relation of the Rebekah lodge to Odd Fellowism. She said: "Among the associations of the world there is one known as the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. Its name, Odd, as it seems has no special- significance; its origin was not such as to promise greatness or long life, but it has lived 81 years. It has adopted and taught the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man. It has formulated much in the beautiful and expressive words Friend ship, Love and Truth, and their co-or- JX. t-lZ - sty's MM v x v 1 ' tonight as Grand Master of the I. O. O. F. dinate, Faith, Hope and Charity. "The growth of American Odd Fellow ship today owes the fact to a large ex tent to woman who has been an import ant factor in the astonishing prosperity cf our order. No branch of the order has made more gratifying progress than the Rebekahs. "It was that grand old brother, Schul yer Colfax, in the year 1852, who first conceived the idea of associating women with the order and giving it the name Rebekah." The closing of the meeting was a pleasing Cakewalk by Katherine Ben nett and Gertrude Anderson which won much applause. The meeting closed early and the re maining time was spent in an informal social. Following the meeting, the past pre siding officers association held a meet ing at the home of Mrs. Jennie M. Wehe, 719 Quincy street. About 45 wre in at tendance and after a short programme all sat down to a banquet. TOPEKA GETS GRAND LODGE. The meeting of the grand lodge this morning in Representative hall was pre sided over by J. W. Haughey, deputy grand master and grand master elect. The question of location for the next grand ladge meeting was again brought up. The question was on the reconsider ation of the action taken yesterday, lay ing the whole question on the table. Af ter a heated debate a vote was taken. This was not sufficient to decide the question and a roll call was asked. A roll call would allow every past grand in the house a privilege of voting and as the secretary was not prepared to call the names of all the past grands in the room a motion was made for a standing vote. The vote resulted in a defeat of the motion fora reconsider tion of the previous action. This means that Topeka gets the convention of the grand body next year. The nomination of candidates for the position of representative to the sov ereign grand lodge from the grand lodge of Kansas will be held some time dur ing the afternoon. Custom has restricted the candidates to two persons. They are placed in nomination and the members of the subordinate lodges located in the various cities in the state have the priv ilege of voting. Later an election com mittee is appointed who will count the votes in May of next year when, the re sult of the election will be made known. John A. Bright, of Topeka.' the present grand master is making a fight for the place, as is J. A. Colaw of Chanute. The nominations this afternoon may result in the appointment of the two above named as the candidates" for the office. ODD FELLOWS LIKE AUDITORIUM. The Grand Lodge adopted the follow ing this afternoon: "The Grand Lodge of Odd Fellows congratulate the citizens of Topeka and of the state of Kansas upon the commo dious and handsome Auditorium de signed and just completed in the capital city for the accommodations of large gatherings. The Odd Fellows now in the city held an ope.n meeting in the Audi torium, Wednesday evening, October 10, and being the first body of out-of-town people to use this very creditable struc ture, the pleasure we experienced com pels us to a word of commendation. The great room, capable of seating comfor tably 5,000 people, every seat being as good as another, with accoustie proper ties first-class, ia beautiful to the eye. Si SHOULD KILL A PRESIDENT. Anarchist Bertolani Says This Should Be Done Merely as an Evidence of Good Faith. KNOWS ALL THE PLOTS Seven Men Selected to Murder Rulers of States. One Was Allotted to Bryan or McKinley. New Tork, Oct. 11. A dispatch to the Journal and Advertiser from Rome, says: The Anarchist Bertolani arrested at Milan as a suspected accomplice of BrescI, has made a confession about an archist plots: "I have known about these plots for a long time," he says. "It was I who sent the letter to the crown prosecutor at Naples warning him in advance that Italian anarchists were coming from America to kill the king, but they paid no attention to my letter. "At an anarchist meeting in Paterson, N. J., seven men were selected to kill kings and chiefs of states. One of them was allotted to McKinley or Bryan dur ing the presidential campaign. I do not know the name of the man who was assigned to this duty. The recent Chi cago plot was independent of that hatched at Paterson. I believe other plots having the same object have been organized in the United States. "Anarchists have killed kings and queens, now they should kill a president of a republic to show the world that for anarchists there are neither monarchies, nor republics, and that a king . is as cheap as a president." MARTIN'S HILL With Pleasant Weather a Large Crowd Will Go on Satur day's Excursion. With pleasant W'eather Saturday an immense crowd is likely to enjoy the outing and excurison to Martin's Hill. As many as can do so are urged to drive out in carriages. The regular time for trains leaving the Rock Island de pot is 1:40, 2:15 and' 3:40 p. m., .but owing to the very large number of tickets that have been issued the first train will be started shortly after 1 o'clock, and trains will be run until all are accom modated. On account of the large crowd that promises to attend, the committee urges that parents do not permit any little children to go unattended by some one who can look after them. 0 CUT IX RAILS. Road a Must Pay $26 a Ton or Do Without Cleveland, Oct. 11. The Iron Trade Re view this week will say: Interest has centered in the rail trade the past week, largely because of the persistence of re ports that leading buyers had agreed to pay no more than $22, and that a leading seller had decided to cut loose from the pool. Neither report is true. Negotiations for rails are going on. One "eastern road has bought: Chicago booked a 25.UO0 ton order in the week and in the Cleveland district 75,000 to bo.OuO is under Inquirv with the prospect that a good part of it will be closed this week. Indications are that first and last there will be large buying, but there is dissatisfaction on the part of some roads with the price fixeri and by way of protest they mav postpone their contracts for a time. There is no ground for believing that the price will be changed, nor for thinking that the $20 figure will cut off any track renewals. The principal feature of the gener.il market the past week has been increased buying of foundry iron, particularly at Chicago. Several round lots were b night there and these with the business from smaller buyers made the largest week's aggregate in months. Southern irons sold about 50 cents lower, the recent freight reduction being the occasion of additional concessions by makers in the effort to push back northern competition. Malleable buyers at Chicago have also been negotiating and a large tonnage ii pending. A noteworthy development in the week, and one that may have an important bearing on the export trade is the charter ing of four vessels by tne Carnegie Steel company to carry steel from Lake Krie ports to Liverpool, by wav of the Wel land canal and the St. Lawrence. STREET RAILWAY PROJECT Junction City Men Arranging For Improvements. Junction City, Kan., Oct. 11. A dozen Junction City men have taken the in itiatory steps toward organizing a com pany with a capital of $80,000. The plan is to build a street car line to Fort Riley, put in an electric light plant big enough for both Junction City and Fort Riley, and in connection operate an ice plant and cold storage. The promoters include B. Rockwell, John K. Wright, John Davidson, James Humphrey, S. W. Pierce, Dr. C. K. Raber, D. W. Tyler & Co., W. W. Cook, H. H. Zeigler, C. P. Fogelstrom, E. H. Heminway. "We May Get Them Yet. London, Oct. 11. Referring to the mooted purchase of the Danish West Indies by the United States, the Copen hagen correspondent of the Daiiy Tele graph says: "The renewed negotiations will result. I believe, in the purchase. The opposition party in theDanish parlia ment favors the transaction, but urges the government to obtain a larger price than the United States previously of fered. It is understood that America wishes to use St. Croix as a naval coal ing station." and the seats and floor space roomy and restful. The Rebekah assembly, the en campment and the Grand Lodge, to gether with hundreds of outside friends, were entertained together, and it was a joy to for thousands to assemble at once.. "Resolved, further, That the open meeting was a refreshing success, and the officers of this Grand Lodge are di rected to repeat the same during the session of 1901, on such evening -and with such programme as they may determine." OTHER DUPES. Many More Victims of Insurance Swindlers Believed to Exist. Chicago, Oct. 11. Laura Carroll Is named as another victim of the insur ance conspiracy syndicate said to be headed by Dr. August M. Unger. The physician used her, it is said, as a sub ject on whom to take out policies in a game similar to that which was attempt ed with Marie Defenbach. The Carrol! woman disappeared four or five months ago, and none of those with whom she associated has seen her smce. During her residence here she was an intimate friend of Miss Defenbach, and is alleged to have been a patient and sweetheart of Dr. Unger. Miss Carroll was about 22 years of age. She was an orphan ami had a guardian, Dr. Gustav Schmidt, living in Milwaukee, from which city she came here. During the six or seven months that F. Wayland Rrown was managing the Mooney and Poland oftloe here, an un usual number of stenographers were em ployed. These were all women, and all were employed by Brown. The subse quent disappearance of many of them is now deemed a matter worth looking into, as likely to show effort to defraud on a much larger scale than has yet been brought to light. The subjects on which the Unger-Brown-Smiley syndicate secured insur ance with fraudulent Intent are all be lieved to be women, while the active members of the organization are men. There are indications that the organiza tion had a much wider scope than was first thought. It Is asserted by detec tives that at least two score of people are criminally connected with it. One of those who is now under surveil lance is a wealthy and prominent law yer. He is alleged to be the financial backer. TARIFF BOBS UP. Got. Roosevelt Again Makes Re ply to Col. Bryan. Anderson, Ind., Oct. 11. Governor Roosevelt began the second day of his. campaign tour in Indiana by making ten minute speeches at Marlon, Fair mount and Alexander after which the duration of the stops was increased to 20 minutes. In all the towns large dele gations from the country were present, Marion giving a noteworthy parade Speaking at Alexandria the governor said: "I am informed that in a speech Mr. Bryan admitted that he stood on the plank of the Kansas City platform, which demands that all products made by large corporations shall be put upon the free list. "To that doctrine the Republican par ty is unalterably opposed. Glass, one of the principal products in this region, is made by large corporations such as Mr. Bryan describes. The Republican party will never permit Mr. Bryan to have his way and throw down the barrier of pro duction that interposes between the American iron worker and his under paid Russian rival. The only legislation put upon the national statute books for the proper regulation of these large cor porations was put there by Republican votes on June 1st last. Mr. Bryan's par ty which promises so much for the reg ulation of those large corporations, showed their utter insincerity when brought to the test. The proposed amendment to the constitution giving congress power to regulate and control all trusts and monopolies was opposed by every Democrat but four in the na tional house of representatives. Jt re ceived the votes of every Republican but two. "The only policy Mr. Bryan can offer is a policy that would destroy the entire industry by which you in Alexandria earn your bread. The policy that we ad vocate and which we are prepared to support involves no destruction of any industry but the protection of Ameri can labor against the competition of its foreign rivals." TEN ACRES OF PEOPLE Listen to Roosevelt at Anderson While Their Time Goes On. Muncie, Ind., Oct. 11. At Anderson the crowd to which Governor Roosevelt spoke filled a ten acre lot. tn the throng were S00 steel and file factory employes in rough rider uniforms and as many more mounted. All the factories shut down during the morning to permit the employes to attend, their wages contin uing. Governor Roosevelt said: "Mr. Bryan said the other day that he was going to help the wage workers here by taking the tariff off of all the goods you manufacture. He said he would get at the big corporations in that way. So he would; and he would get at everybody who works for them. You recall the sheep farmer who after election in '52 said he had voted for free wool and that he came within five cents of it. Gentlemen, the most dangerous man in America is the man who strives to persuade our people that the interest of a part comes in downing another part." At Muncie there was no speaking. The time was devoted to a parade through the principal streets, all of which were profusely decorated. All factories were closed during the early part of the day, the employes drawing full pay.
