LBTTEMB To THE EDITOR. DOUBTFUL PARKER. No One Can Forecast the Policy He Would Pursue if Elected. : To the Editor of The Tribune. Sir: I read your paper with the greatest ap i preclatlon. From It I i earn that the Democratlo candidate will go down In history as "Doubtful Parker." What policy would he pursue toward the Philip : pines? Doubtful. What policy would he pursue toward the trusts If hi! opinion as to the efficiency of the common law to control them should prove incorrect? Doubt ful. Would he. on the ground of "regularity," sign a , free stiver law tf the Democratic party, by some hook or crook, got it passed by Congress? Doubt . tuV Would be enforce the law against capital only, or asamst union labor only, or both? DoubtfuL Would he appoint negroes to office and uphold the mixed schools of New- York, as Mr. Watson , has well Rsked? Doubtful. Would he sign an Income tax law? Doubtful. Would he continue the building of the Panama ; Canal, or abandon it on the grounds that our rights were oiit ;l ined unconstitutionally? Doubtful. Would he find his Cabinet and advisers in Hill or Tammany, or in men of the Cleveland stripe or In that of Bryan? Doubtful. Can the men who mistakenly represented him at • the convention correctly forecast his future con . duct on any important measure? Doubtful. To those who would like to experiment with the , welfare of the country "Doubtful Parker" is an Meal candidate, but a vast majority of our citi zen? believe. with Captain Sigshpe. that. "It Is bet : ter t<« know than 1* think." and this f»ct jour editorial columns drive home In nn unanswerable way. JAMES M. Ht'FF. BetvMwv, ill.. Sept. 21. 19-U ALL HOPES OF PARKER GONE. To the Editor of Th<> Tribune. S'.r: I read Th« Dalhr Tribune with « irrent deal of plcnßure. I ;im a born Democrat, but voted for licKfntey, and i believe I would vote for Roosevelt except for Mr. "NM^Kor." Anyway, I want you to tell me what's the matter with Democracy. I hove acver known rook fripMtty In « political cam pn'Kn. Down here ln good old Pemorratlr- OeorKia and Alabama you put a man asleep If you talk to him about the Presidential campaign. The eaalrsaaa of the Floyd County (Ga.) Demo cratic Kxerutlve Committee wrote to the State chairman asking if lie would furnish tickets for the cam-mrs October Rate election. The chairman of the Mate Democratic Executive Committee re plied: "I bfg to Inform you that the State Execu tive Cosßßstttee Is entirely without fumls to «w»nd out tickets of any kind, and this 1 r<>Kr»t very much." Wonder If the national chairman wouldn't h*~ip Im'tc a little? If Jixlicf Parker or pome other large Democratic light doesn't stir up a little more life in this cam paign .rile will have to bo hauled to the polls ln rarriaß''? ln order to get them to vote. You will be surprised when I state that there are many fairly well informed voters down here who have to think twW before they can tell you th«» names of the Democratic candidates for President and Vice- Prcsldent. They are not thinking or oaring any thing about the election. IV! lie I am for Judge Pnrker. ! really think it would be a good Idea for him to withdraw, and l<-t us make It unanimous for Mr. Roosevelt and be done with it. For a while after J'.i'lgn Parker's nomination l firmly believed h<» would be. elected, but my hopes have fled, and now I don't care much about it one way or the other. C. B. G. Belmont, Ala.. Sept. 21, 11*04. THE DEBILITANT DEMOCRACY. T» the Kdi'or nf The Tribune. Sir: Heretofore I have thought that nothing could be except what embodied a meaning. Were the late William C Whitney alive, he would under stand and appreciate why I have recently begun to think that I may have been In error. In Febru ary. UN, handing Mr. Whitney, at his then resi dence, a newspaper clipping. I asked him. "Is the Democracy detillitant?" "Whatever that Is. I should think It must be, If It, or any part of it. imagines that free coinage has my approval or concurrence.," was his answer. Immediately following this answer he wrote and signed a letter, extracts from which are I learn that SOSM persons have believed me a sup porter of the view that the T'nlted States «houl<l open its mints to the free colr.a** of silver at 1« to 1 Independent of the co-operation and action of other nations. ai:d in that belief have been led Into a false position as regards their own principles. Vnd«r these circumstances I ought to nay that I do not believe In that theory of finance, but consider it unsound, and. if adopted, likely to lead in mort evil consequences to our people and their !nduK.rle« and prosperity It Is, in my opinion, fundamentally wrong and vicious. , , m .w~ I'ntil the ratio of value of the metals is fixed by a concurrence of the nations, and the. stab!. lty or ouch value maintained by International agreement. I believe any action by the United States alone would be disastrous to us. would bring 5" n ", r vl "'" to our present prosperity and would hinder the true aid final solution of the problem. Thir*e opinions I do not entertain or express as a candidate for the PreMden. y. but In order that the people who have views differing from these may not be deceived as to mine. That was William <". Whitney: and it is not strange that a man possessed of such convictions, and with courage to openly express them, "houltl have voted for lacKlnTey; nor Is It strange that the undersigned is not th* only one who feels a sured that, if Mr. Whitney were now In the flesh he would be affirmatively against the .lection of an) ticket the success of which meant disaster '•■> tne United Btates. ruin to Ita present ProaperUr. or »at could or would binder the true and Bnaf aolutfoa of any problem that God *»U r-j;^ injtru ment« to work out.

Blr- That fact of the Republican platform de manding reduction of representation In Congress and the electoral college in proportion as the suffrage has been limited Is the subject of vituperative abuse by every Democratic newspaper and orator in tn* South. No argument Is made or ' off.red against its legality, fend that the Constitu tion requires It none dare deny, for It is plain; but they claim that It is an att-ropt to oppress the South. In looking over to-day volume I of "South am Historical Papers" I found an address de livered by that world-famed orator. Senator John T. (Nicaragua) Morgan, of Alabama, la the year 1877. Now, Senator Morgan has been regarded in the South' for a generation as Its greatest Consti tutional lawyer. paten to what he. says on pages ' 26 and 26 of said address: "The enfranchisement of the negro added so materially to the political power of the South . . . It is to our interest and In full . accord with our duties that they should enjoy the Mewing* of the Republic. They ran participate with safety in the electoral franchise, and when : left to the guidance of their own free wills they will do themselves and the country Justice. At all events we cannot afford to surrender the political ..r.wer 'that depends on their right of suffrage." '^Henderson. N. C. Sept. 1904. T. X. HICKS. ENGINE ACCIDENTS DELAY BT. PAUL.

[BT TELEGRAPH TO THE TRIBtTTSK.I Poughkeepsie. N. V., Sept 24.— Two high school girls. Hazel Weaver and Mary Teator, of Rhlnebeck. had a thrilling experience this after noon while strolling through Colonel Astor*s estate, Ferncliffe, several miles from the village. The girls in the course of their wanderings had occasion to cross a high trestle of the Central New-England Railroad, which passes through a part of the property, and had reached the centre of the structure, when a train came along run ning at ah gh rate of speed. The train was two hours late and was not expected by the young students. The engineer put on the air brakes, bat was unable to cheek the speed of the train, and the girls, after a second's hesitation, threw them selves from the trestle, thirty feet, to the bed of a rocky stream. Miss Teator Jumped from one side cf the trestle and Miss Weaver from the other. On the side from which Miss Weaver Jumped there Is a steep grade, and down this she rolled for mora than one hundred feet. She was unconsclo'jg when picked up, and was removed to the Thomp son Hospital, at Rhinebeck. It Is feared that her injuries will result fatally. Miss Teator escaped serious Injury, but was badly bruised. She was taken to her home tn Rhinebeck. M'ADOO TUTORS A POLICEMAN. Tells Him to Clear Away Crowd that Bars Air from Injured Han. I? the Police Commissioner could personally look after the men who shirk duty on post. It Is more than probable that there would be an un usual display of activity among the policemen. Going tip Broadway last night the Commis sioner noticed a crowd at Thlrty-thlrd-st., and, elbowing his way through, saw an aged man lying on the sidewalk. He was Henry Car penter, seventy-nine years old, of No. 79 Broad way, Flushing. He had been struck by a Broad way car, George O'Brien motorman. While the old man was not seriously Injured, he had sustained severe contusions, and was suf fering considerably. The Commissioner took charge of the case and made himself known to Patrolman John White, of the West Thirtieth-st. station, who was watting for the ambulance. "Officer, drive this crowd back." said the Com missioner, "go that he can grt air to breathe. This dense Crowd will suffocate him." Single handed Wkttfl was unequal to the task. He rapped for assistance, and. with the aid of Patmlman Di- hi. of the Broadway Squad, who answered, cleared a largo circle about the wounded man. Carpenter was removed to New-York Hospital in an ambulance. Commis sioner McAdoo remained until hts removal. FOUND PETEIFIED BODY. Is It Another Cardiff Giant Unearthed in Nebraska ?

Nelson swam over a quarter of a mile to It. and then swam back to aid Schultz. The first day of drifting five, vessels passed the two men without offering succor. The next day two liners, each with two smokestacks painted red, with black tops, passed toward Sandy Hook. One was so near that Nelson could see the failures of the four men on her bridge. That was Friday. Saturday NVlson saw a carrot floating In the water. It was wormy and rotten, but the two men ate it. A huge shark persistently followed them. By Sunday they were too exhausted to continue Searing the shark away with a piece of ragged Scantling torn from the roof. At Nelson's sugges tion they began to carve their names and addresses on tho roof, that If they were ever picked up the rudely carved letters would 1. 11 their story. SchultE first cut his name and address, the name of the schooner and the date of the wreck. Then he carved what he thought woald be his last words to his boy, who lives In Bohoken: To my boy— brave, be good and care for sister. FATHER. Nelson helped Schultz spell out the message and then carved his own name, address and age. When the last letter hail been dug in the hard wood a school of sea bass began to swim around them. Nelson made a rude spear out of the pole they had used to Jab at the shark and a rusty nail, lashing th* nail to the pole with a shoestring. The fish ■were too active to bo caught with this rude affair. At 4:30 p. m. they were picked up by the schooner Margaret Haskell, bound for Norfolk. CONEY ISLAND SEASON ENDS TO-DAY.
