Got. Roosevelt Begins Second
Day in New York.
Train Leaves Kingston at Nine
O'clock This Morning.
Fifteen Speeches Scheduled For
the Day.
The Candidate's Throat is in
Excellent Condition.
Kir.gston. X. Y., Oct. 23. Despite the
serious strain of the numerous speeches
made yesterday. Governor Roosevelt
found his throat in excellent condition
this morning when he arose. He had
declined the numerous invitations to
rest at private houses, and slept on the
special train at the noisiest place, as
he described it. since he began his trip.
It was at the junction of the West Shore
and Ulster & Delaware roads, and moving-
engines and trains were frequent.
The governor rose early and breakfasted
before the start for the mountains,
which was scheduled for 9 o'clock. He
uas inclined to laugh over the numer
ous interruptions at outdoor points yes
terday. Relating to the one made in
front of the Y. M. C. A. rooms last even
ing in this city he was told by Capt. Jo
seph Dickey that the element that cre
ated the disturbance was composed of
loungers and foreigners. He laughed
and said:
Well, if they insist on answers and
wont let the meetings go on in an or
derly manner, I'll drive them away by
talk that they can understand."
He was assured that the country
through which he was going today
M ould not produce the Fame kind of dis
order. It was 9 o'clock when the train
pulled out of the station and started up
the Catskill mountains. The trip for
the day covers 2TS miles and requires
running on three different railroads.
Fifteen speeches will be made by the
candidate. The morning was beautiful
and the mountains looked their prettiest
in autumn attire. Capt. Joseph Dickey
of Newburgh and George J. Smith of
Kingston went with the party from here.
West Shokan, N. Y.. Oct. 23. West
Hurley was the first stop of the day and
an enthusiastic though small crowd
greeted Gov. Koosevelt. He said:
" It setms to me that in this campaign
the issue is whether or not the people
cf the United States have the good sense
to understand what not to do. in other
words, whether we do, or do not under
stand any existing evil would be aggra
vated by Bryanism and existing good
wiped out by it. There will always be
difficulties to face; always things to
make better, but no man qualified to ex
ercise in the wisest way the duties of
American citizenship will believe that
evil can be best wiped out by smashing
the evil and the good that predom
Phoenicia. X. Y., Oct. 23. The Roose
velt train made Us second stop here and
Governor Roosevelt talked to about the
entire population of the place. The gov
ernor said:
'I wish the hum of industry over
there gave me a chance to speak (re
ferring to a steam whistle which was
tooting loudly in a manufacturing es
tablishment near the depot). I have but
a moment here, and I want to call your
attention to one phase of this contest.
Mr Bryan says he wants to benefit the
wageworker and give him a better share
in the prosperity. Ho do I. Mr. Bryan's
remedy is to make the employer and the
wageworker earn nothing and to re
duce them to a common level of misery."
The governor referred the audience to
his record on labor matters during his
term of office, and said:
" Iwill join most heartily in any hon
est, intelligent effort through legislation
or throueh administration to make
things better. You are not going to
eradicate evils by killing the patient."
Pine Hill, N. Y., Oct. 23 At Phoenicia.
Governor Roosevelt briefly referred to
the fact that there were evils in the
country and things that ought to be im
proved, but said he would not join with
Mr. Kryan in trying to remedy them by
destroyir.g everything in the country.
The governor told his hearers Charles
Lamb's story of how the Chinee discov
ered roast pig was good, but said he
clid not believe as the Chinese did, for
awhile, that the way to roast a pig was
to burn down a house.
The next stop was at Shandaken.
Amidst the cheers that greeted the vice
presidential candidate as he stepped out
on the platform a voice cried out "Hur
rah for Bryan." The cheers were not
given: instead three cheers for Roose
velt were proposed and given. The gov
ernor turning to the Bryanite said:
"I am tempted to ask why you hurrah
for Bryan?"
"Because he has come here to aid Mr.
Croker, because he gave the poor people
ice this summer in New York," came
bar k the reply.
"Mr. Bryan crave the poorpeople ice?"
asked Governor Roosevelt in a surprised
Do you mean you believe that: if you
do. I don't wondsr you can hurrah for
Bryan, o ranything e'.se.
"Now. gentlemen. I am going to speak
of something suggestive of that gentle
man." rtsum-d Mr. Roosevelt.
"Never mind him." was shouted.
'I don't; I like him; he amuses and in
terests me."
The governor then went on to sav he
appealed to Republicans and Democrats
alike and asked them to distinguish be
tween the names of things and the
things themselves and stated ' a ton of
oratory was not worth an ounce of per
formance." Unitarian Institute Opens.
Worcester, Mass., Oct.23. Th Unitar
ian institute, attended by over 100 prom
inent clergymen of the denomination
from various parts of the United State
opened for a three days' session here
today. Rev. A. S. Garves. of Worcester,
delivered an address of welcome. The
day was devoted to the reading and dis
cussion of papers.
To Make Two States.
Ft. Worth, Tex., Oct. 23. The citizens
of Oklahoma and the Indian Territory
want statehoods for the two territories.
The formation of leagues to promote
this end has commenced. The first league
f'as organized at Wagoner, I. T. De
termined efforts in this direction are be

Archbishop Gives His Keasons For
Supporting McKinley.
New York, Oct. 23. Archbishop Ire
land has given out the following state
ment: "How do I intend to vote? It cannot
at first sight but seem more or less im
pertinent for any citizen to tell the pub
lic how he intends to vote. In voting
each citizen obeys the dictates of his
own sense of civic duty; he should sim
ply do this and leave it to others to do
"However, since a certain number of
newspapers have undertaken to say how
I intend to vote," and in so doing have
misinterpreted my intention and have
not been unwilling to make political
capital out of my supposed vote, I will
give to the question a categorical and
unmistakable reply. I intend to vote for
William McKinley and Theodore Roose
velt. "In giving- my vote for the candidates
of the Republican party I am satisfied
in my own conscience that 1 serve the
best interests of the country at home
and abroad; that I contribute to the
maintenance of the country's material
prosperity and of peace and good-will
between the several classes of its popu
lation: that I aid the country in bring
ing about the safest and most honorable
solutions of the complex problems which
confront it as the result of the late war,
and in retaining for itself the exalted
position which it holds at present, com
mercially and diplomatically.before oth
er nations of the world."
Addresses a Crowd of 3,000 in
Chicago, Oct. 23. A crowd of three
thousand colored voters listened to an
address last night by Senator Hanna at
the First regiment armory. The sen
ator was very hoarse as a result of his
week's campaigning in the west, but
nevertheless he succeeded in malting
himself heard. He spoke briefly and
his remarks at all times greeted with
"There was never a time," said Sen
ator Hanna. "w hen those whose citizen
ship came with the birthday of the Re
publican party had greater cause to re
joice. The colored troops are always in
line and ready for action. As long as
the Republican party is true to the prin
ciples which attracted to it the colored
population of the United States, the
colored vote will never be divided.
"All the collateral issues injected into
this campaign by the Bryanites have
been for the sole purpose of bewildering
and leading public opinion astray as to
what was the real issue. When it comes
down to what we are most interested in
it amounts to just one issue, and one
short sentence tells it: 'Let well enough
alone.' No man who loves his coun
try, no man who is proud of his citizen-'
ship, no man who cares for his own ma
terial interests can have more than one
choice upon that question. Today we
are in the midst of the greatest era of
prosperity that this country ever knew;
but it is nothing more than the natural
condition of a nation having, as we have.
the greatest natural resources of any
any. the greatest people of any, full of
industry, ingenuity and progress. It is
for the people to decide whether these
conditions shall continue.
To Hold the Crowd That Turned Out
to Hear Senator Beveridge.
Louisville. Ky., Oct. 23. Library hall
was too small to hold the crowd that
wanted to hear the speech of Senator.
Albert J. Beveridge, of Indiana, last
night. While the senator was speaking
for McKinley in this hall. Bourke Cock
ran was speaking for Bryan at the Au
ditorium, so the clans were to a large
degree separated. Senator Beveridge's
audience greeted him enthusiastically
and cheered him continuously. Among
the vice presidents on the stage were a
number of Brown Democrats.

Statesman from LaGrande, Ore., says:

Wants Maine Wreck Removed.
Washington, Oct. 23. Gen. Leonard
Wood, governor general of Cuba, saw
Secretary Long' today and recommended
that steps be taken to remove the wreck
of the battleship Maine from Havana
harbor, as it occupies a great deal of
space which could be utiiized to advan
tage. He said he thought the wreck
would have to be taken up piece meal
instead of being raised as a whole.
Schurz's Resignation Refused.
New York, Oct. 23. The National Civil
Service Reform league has declined to

Crowd of a Thousand People
Welcomes Him.
Five Thousand Turn Out to Hear
Him Speak Before Leaving.
Met by a Delegation of the Mary
land State Committee
Who Will He in Charge of His
Tour of the State.
Washington, Oct- 23. W. J. Bryan
spent an hour and a quarter at the na
tional capital today. His train arrived
over the Chesapeake & Ohio railroad
from West Virginia at 7:55 o'clock this
morning-, an hour late. About 1,000 peo
ple were awaiting him at the depot. A
force of three score policemen and de
tectives were distributed between the
two depots to maintain order. As the
train pulled in amid cheers of the wait
ing crowd, ex-'Judge Wm. M. Springer,
former chairman of the ways and means
committee, an old colleague and warm
friend of the Democratic candidate,
stepped to Mr. Bryan's private car at
the rear cf the train and welcomed him.
The two then passed down through the
depot followed by a large and enthu
siastic crowd and gradually worked their
way to the entrance. Here an automo
bile was in waiting and they were taken
to the residence of Judge Springer, op
poste the capitol, where Mr. Bryan had
breakfast. Col. Isaac Hill, Democratic
"whip" of the house of representatives,
was the only other guest.
A few minutes before 9 o'clock Mr.
Bryan was driven to the Baltimore &
Ohio depot, where he made a brief
speech from his automobile. He spoke
on imperialism and civil service. About
5.000 people were massed about the
depot. Mr. Bryan said:
"Occasionally I hear it suggested that
persons engaged in the civil service who
are opposed to imperialism will vote the
Republican ticket for fear of losing their
positions with the government. Cer
tainly there are not many who would
prefer government employment under
an empire to whatever risk might attend
their employment under a republic. I
am not much of an admirer of that
civil service which is suspended when
a president is inaugurated until he can
fill the offices with his friends and is
extended by the president when he is
about to retire in order that he may
protect his friends in office. I believe
that a system of civil service might be
devised wherein appointments would be
made upon merit and wherein the ap
pointees would hold for a fixed terni and
not be dependent upon the will of an ap
pointing officer. The industrial despot
ism now inaugurated by the Republican
party is closing the door of opportunity
against the young man and driving
many to seek government employment
who under better conditions would be
employed in producing industries."
Mr. Bryan closed with the statement
that it was not his highest ambition to
be president, "but to make this govern
ment so good that to be a private citizen
in this republic will be a greater honor
than to be a king in any other nation.'
A delegation from the Maryland state
central committee met Mr. Bryan here
and a few minutes after 9 he left in
special train of three cars for Rockville,
where he made the first of a series of
speeches in a tour cf Maryland towns.
Before reaching Washington the train
on which Mr. Bryan came in made a
brief step at Alexandria, Va. The state
ment had been made in advance that Mr.
Bryan would make a brief speech in that
town and a large number of people had
congregated at the railroad yards to
greet him. They received him with voci
ferous cheers but no time was given for
a speech. Mr. Bryan had only time to
say that he felt complimented to have
so many people come out to greet him so
early in the morning. He felt, he said,
sure of Virginia's support and from
what he had seen of other states re
cently he felt justified In asserting that
Virginia would have plenty of company
on election day. The only other stop
made in Virginia after daylight was at
Manassas. That point was reached at
a very early hour. The stop was only for
a moment and Mr. Bryan did not ap
pear. Nevertheless there was a crowd at
the station.
Washington Junction, Md., Oct. 23.
Mr. Bryan's first stopping place in
Maryland was at Rockville, in Montgom
ery county. He spoke there from a
stand erected near the railway station,
and addressed a fair sized crowd, which
was oniy moderately demonstrative. His
speech was largely a repetition of for
mer arguments. He said In part:
"The Republican party stands today
for its well defined policies and you
ought not to vote the Republican ticket
unless you believe in those policies.
There is only one way to make a party
do right, and that is to punish it when it
is wrong. Just as long as you support
a party regardless of what the party
does the party will act regardless of your
interests The trouble with the Repub
lican party today is that it is so domi
nated by the great corporation interests
of this country that it forgets the toiling
masses who must furnish the great ma
jority of the votes for ail parties. All
over this state, all over this nation, are
Republicans who toil who have been for
gotten by Republican leaders. The Re
publican party has placed the dollar
above the man, and is today giving to
the few the opportunity to exploit the
many in this country, and the few not
satisfied with the opportunities they
have here are now demanding the repeal
of the declaration of independence and
the substitution of European ideas for
American ideas in order that they may
have a chance to exploit distant islands.
Industrial monopoly rules at home, and
after having brought the industries of
this nation into great trusts, the Repub
lican party now wants this nation to
join the international land-grabbing
trust, and reach out for new fields to
conquer. If you believe that an indus
trial monopoly i3 good, vote the Repub
lican iicket, for you can do so with the
assurance that you will get all the mo
nopoly you want; but if you are tired of
seeing thousands and tens of thousands
of laboring men compelled to look for
their daily bread to a few great employ
ers, if you are tired of seeing those who
produce the wealth of the country en
joy a less and less proportion of the
wealth they produce, you can vote the
Republican ticket with the assurance .
that this policy of concentration of cap
ital and centralization of government
will continue. But if you want to open
the door of opportunity to the young
men of this country and plant in the
heart of every child a hope and cause
every citizen to have something to live
for in this land, you have got to leave
the Republican party to give expression
to your views.
"Not satisfied with making the whole
people the victims of monopolistic ex
tortion, the Republican party today
desires to fasten upon the American
people a standing army four times as
large as the army was in 1896. When a
Republican dares to defend the presi
dent's recommendation that the army be
made 100,000, I want you to ask him to
give you a reason for that increase.
Why do we want to add 75.000 soldiers to
our military establishment? Do we need
the increase? Have any of you asked
for it?"
From this point on Mr. Bryan dis
cussed the army question and coupled
with it frequent reference to the sub
ject of imperialism. Mr. Bryan is under
the escort in his Maryland tour of a
committee of leading Democrats of the
state, headed by Col. L. Victor Baugh
man, representing ex-Senator Gorman,
national committeeman of the state.
Mr. Bryan will make brief speeches in
Philadelphia on his passage through
that city next Tuesday.
Goes Gunning For Quay Men in
Anthracite Coal Region.
Fottstown, Pa., Oct. 23. John TVana
maker last night made his first political
address in two years. His speech here
was the beginning: of a brief tour in the
interest of the candidates for the state
legislature who are opposed to the Quay
wing of the Republican pivrty in this state.
At the tJeginning- of his address Mr.
Wanamaker said that four years ago, he
spoke In advocacy of the election of Mr.
McKinley an. would have done the same
thing this year had there been any ques
tion cf PennFy'.vania's vote for McKinley.
He said also that he was in no wise a.
candidate for the office of "United States
senator though had the office come in IS; '6
he would have accepted it.
Mr. Wanamaker severely scored what
he termed the "machine" and said that
Tweedism at its worst was no wor-e
than Quayism at its best, but that there
was no best Qtiayism as there is no good
bad. H spoke of the value of good gov
ernment and the benefits to be derived
therefrom. Tn this connection he referred
to the strike in the anthracite coal reg
ion and said that good government would
prevent the flagrant violation of the con
stitution by the coal companies constitut
ing themselves miners, shippers and mer
chants in coal, keeping company stores,
paying wages at long intervals, dpnying
check weighmen. employing children at
deathly tasks and endangering the lives
of miners by ignoring precautions for
their safety.
"Good government, said Mr. Wana.
mftker. "by removing the indefensible
discrimination in transportation would
have removed the chief cause of . he
strike of 150.000 men, which has deprived
them of their wages and wasted the cap
ital of such of their employers as are
at the mercy of tho railroads."
Mr. Wanamaker said, in declaring that
he was not a candidate for the senate,
that he wanted to be freer than ever bj
fore to fight the forces of evil in this plun
dered and debauched state.
Declares That Sampson Is Dying
of a Broken Heart.
Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 23. During his pres
ent visit to his home in Alabama and
wherever he has appeared before the
public Lieutenant Richmond P. Hobson
has been quoted as saying that Admiral
Sampson is dying of a broken heart,
owing to the Sampson-Schley contro
versy which followed the naval engage
ment at Santiago. He is quoted as fol
lows: "When last Saturday, October 13. I
saw in the papers that Admiral Sampson
was ill I took the next train to Boston
and spent Sunday -with him. His health
is declining. His physicians are baffled
at his malady. His organs are all right,
but his health does not improve.
"We touched on one or two subjects.
For a little while he could not speak.
Soon he had to be carried to his room
and I did not see him again. Mrs.
Sampson told me that this great man
was brooding, was breaking his heart at
the thought that his fellow-countrymen
were so unkind.
"I said to Mrs. Sampson: 'When I
visit my southland, if the opportunity
offers itself I wish to tell them some
thing of this majestic character.'
"She replied: 'You dare not; your
southland was quick and vigorous to re
sent what was thought to be an attempt
to take away the laurels of one of its
great men.'
"I came by Washington and saw the
secretary of the navy and the president.
To them I also stated my intention, and
they both gave me their consent, warn
ing me, however, of what I might ex
pect." Mr. Hobson, in his speech at a public
reception here, said Admiral Sampson
had not received simple justice at the
hands of the American people. He said:
"It has been sought to place him in
a despicable light before the world; to
make him an incompetent, narrow mind
ed man. and jealous of the farne of his
contempories, particularly of one illus
trious naval chief. As his junior officer
serving under him, I express the delib
erate opinion that Admiral Sampson is
the colossal figure of the Spanish-American
war the genius of the naval victory
of Santiago.
"He is unmatched today as the direct
ing mind of a war squadron on the

large audience and his address, which
lasted two hours, was attentive'y H-tened

speech received better attention than any
delivered here this year. He discussed the
Filipino question in a way no other ora

information in the islands and their peo
ple, drawn from his experience and study
while there.
The general comment is that his argu

As Soon as the Coal Barons Post
Of Their Acceptance of the
Terms of the Miners
President Mitchell Will Call
Executive Board Together
And the Strike Will Be Formal
ly Declared Off.
Hazleton, Pa., Oct. 23. Around the
national headquarters of the United
Mine Workers today the belief was
unanimous that the end of the strike will
come within a very short time. Presi
dent Mitchell, notwithstanding contrary
reports, has set no date for calling off
the strike. As soon as all the operators
signify their willingness to pay 10 per
cent, advance in wages until April the
national executive board will be called
in session to vote on 'ending the con
test. President Mitchell appears to be more
anxious about the Delaware, lacka
wanna & Western and the Delaware &
Hudson coal companies than any of the
others. These companies have taken
such a prominent part in the struggle
that it is believed that as soon as they
post supplemental notices the other op
erators will fall into line.
Wilkesbarre, Pa., Oct. 23. Empty coal
cars are being placed today at all the
Delaware, Lackawanna & Western com
pany's mines, and it is apparent that the
company is preparing to mine and ship
coal. This is taken as an indication that
the companies are getting ready for the
return of their men to work following
the posting of notices at every mine.
General Superintendent Lathrop of the
Lehigh Valley Coal company is said to
be in New York today preparing for a
resumption of coal shipments.
No attempt was made this morning to
resume work at the Stanton washery of
the Lehigh and Wilkesbarre Coal com
pany, which was closed yesterday fol
lowing an attack on the men by a crowd
of women and boys. Shots were f red
this morning from the windows of
houses near by at the coal and iron po
licemen who were guarding the coal
bank. The company rather than see any
loss of life withdrew the policemen from
the bank and stationed them at the coal
breaker. As soon as the policemen took
their departure a crowd of men, pre
sumably strikers, marched upon the
company's property, tore up 200 feet of
railroad track and set lire to a tool

Mining company, at Archibald, employ

keg, the new price to figure in the in

been on strike since last January. No

region that have not yet posted their
Thomas Nicholls, president of district
No. 1 of the United Mine Workers, to
day admitted that the end of the strike
is near and that it would come in a very
few days. A meeting of all the district
and national officers has been called for
tomorrow, he said, and at this meeting
positive action will probably be taken,
provided, however, that all the coal
companies will guarantee a 10 per cent,
advance until April 1.

He is Satisfied That the Law Can Be
James Willis Greed, of Topeka, presi
dent of the State Temperance Union, has
this to say concerning the prohibitory
law in Kansas:
"In the hands of officials who honest
ly desire to do their whole fluty as pre
scribed by the statutes and their oath3
of office, the prohibition law can be ful
ly and fairly enforced. We know this
because it has been done. In the hands
of officials whose sole desire is the nulli
fication and repeal of the law, it will,
of course, not be efficiently enforced.
The first aim of the people who desire to
protect individuals and society and the
body politic from the ravages of alcohol
ism, from the inexpressible evils of the
liquor traffic, must be to retire cowardly,
recreant and rebel officials, enemies of
law and of the constitution, and to put
in thtir places men of courage and loy
alty. "We are unalterably opposed to the
resubmission of the prohibitory amend
ment. It would settle nothing. The war
would go on just the same. Pending the
election we should have a reign of law
lessness and terror. The state would be
colonized with the border rulfians of the
whisky cause. Whisky corruption funds
wTould flood the state. Bribery and vio
lence would dominate the polls. Noth
ing would be gained in the end. Brewers,
distillers, saloon keepers, and jointist
the parasites and pirates of all grades
and conditions, are a unit for resubmis
sion. Let sober, industrious, law-abiding
citizens hold the vantage they have
gained. The people can express their
wish by sending only friends of the con
stitution as it stands to represent them
in the legislature."
Four Men Hare Been Arrested at
Paterson, N. J.
New York, Oct. 23. Late last night
George Kerr, Walter McAllister, Wm.
Death and Andrew Campbell were ar
rested by the police of Paterson, N. J.,
accused of having caused the death of
Jennie Bosschieter, the young woman
whose body was found on the outskirts
of Paterson Kerr and Death are mar
ried. The police say Death has made a con
fession, saying that the four were drink
ing with the girl and gave her "knock
out" drops. They then took her in a
buggy across the bridge into Bergen
county, passing the girl's home on the
way to the spot where the body was
found the next rn-orning.
In the struggle which occurred there
one of the men, which one is not stated,
tripped the girl, throwing her heavily to
the ground. The fail rendered her un
conscious, and the four men became
frightened. They put her in the buggy
and started back to Paterson with her,
but changed their minds and again
brought her back to the spot where the
assault had occurred.
Leaving her there they secured a doc
tor, whose name was not given. He
pronounced the girl beyond help. De
tectives employed on the case assert
that death was caused by the knock
out drops given her, and not by the
blow,- on the head.
Death is an insurance collector, Mc
Allister is a son of a well to do silk
throwster, Kerr is a member of a
wealthy family and brother of former
Judge Kerr, and Campbell is foreman in
a silk mill.
A fifth arrest was made today. Gar
rett A. Stowcroft made a statement say
ing he was hired by McAllister, Kerr,
Death and Campbell to drive them with
Miss Bosschieter in a two seated rig
last Thursday night. He said they stop
ped at a saloon where the girl after
drinking became stupefied. Stowcroft
sid he understood she had been given
"knockout drops." They placed her in
the rig and she bacame unconscious.
The men became frightened as the girl
did not revive and they drove to the
office of Dr. Townsend. The girl con
tinued in an unconscious condition and
the men were advised to take her direct
to her home. Subsequently they drove
to the houses of two other physicians
but did not succeed in getting medical
aid and so went back to the office of
Dr. Townsend. When they got there
this time the girl was dead. Then they
drove out to the place where the body
was first discovered near the Wagarrow
bridge and left the body lying there.
Kerr, McAllister, Death and Camp
bell were successively arraigned before
Recorder Senior and were held without
bail to await the action of the grand
jury. They were charged with murder
ing Jennie Bosschieter "by giving her
powerful drugs of which she died a ling
ering death."
It is said that Death has been mar
ried only a few months.

Since the Bourke Cookran speech tlci
Republicans have been hunting around
and advertising that speaketn wouM
"answer Ctx kran." The first man w.:
John P. Irish but his "answer" was far
from satisfactory. It whh thought an
other mar. was n oiled to make "an

forces decided the opportunity was ra
for their candidate to speak In Topeka.
John Dudley and A. K. Itodsers. act

upon his request the proposed meeting

But the Burton men were determi'v d
to have Burton speak in Shawnee coun
