Hasrst'e "Iftbor demonstration" of last week <ras called a fake, and his attempt to show tbßt organized labor bad indorsed him was de- nounced at the meeting of the Central Fed erated Union. A resolution was passed, thank in? Thomas Rock for his work In the Legis lature for the eight hour bill. President Parsons of the Republican County Committee cited numerous Instances of bad '- ■' on the part of the Independence League managers In filling out nominating petitions for Conpress and the Legislature. Chairman Woodruff exposed a Hearst cam paign "fake" by proving that James Farley, the strike breaker, had made do statement of his preference between Mr. Hughes and Mr. Hearst, and that Mr. Farley has no vote in Clinton County. Charles E. Hughes spent Sunday resting at Dansviile. N. T. He said that while he felt every reason for encouragement the Repub li'-ari* niunt take nothing for granted and leave : .'.tiring undone to Insure success. THOMAS liOCR PRiUSED. C. F. U. Recognizes His Work for the Eight-Hour Day. The attempts of agents of William R. Hearst Jest week to delude the public into the belief thai organized labor had indorsed him by issu ing statements that unions which had taken no action whatever regarding him had decided to participate in 'the "fake" labor demonstration laft Thursday 'evening were denounced strongly at yesterday's meeting of the Central Federated Union. The methods employed to create the idea that labor was for Hearst were condemned and every" attempt made to get up enthusiasm for Hearst -was a failure. There was 'be usual crowd in the visitors* gal with a Hearst claque, but it was not a Hearst :r.eer;ng and the applause when Hearst's ~,?.me was mentioned somehow seemed to miss .Ta";e«i Holland, one of the leaders of the H^arFT f.-inior.. presided, but acted fairly toward i idea. The first mention of Mr. Hearst's name came en the reading of a letter from E. L«. Creyo, sec retary of the Central Association of Trades Councils of Corning; N. Y. The writer a«kH if 'he Central Federated Union had indorsed Mr. Hearst last Sunday, rta.ting that he assumed that The Central Federated Union had indorsed r-omebody. though it appeared by the news papers that matters were badly mixed up at the rr.eftinp. The reading of the letter did not arouse any enthusiasm, and the chairman di rected the secretary to reply to the writer of t!ie letter that neither Mr. Hughes nor Mr. Hearst had b«*.n Indorsed. ..■■- An out and out Hearst letter was read from the William Randolph Hearst Club, of Troy, X. V.. condemning labor leaders who. it said, are discredited and are trying to condemn Hearst. Th«» letter, which referred to Mr. Hearst as the m orkir,pman> friend, was filed without any rorament. Several delegates sought the floor. Including James Hatch, chairman of the executive com mittee of the Independent Labor party, but the f-hclrman would not allow them to speak out of their order. He took the names down, and each asked for the indorsement of particular labor candidates as his turn came. John Cedar, delegate of the International Association of Ma chinists said that he was tired of that sort of •hirg. HEARST DOES NOT OWN UNION'S. "I am glad to get a hearing to-day," he said, "as I could not get one last Sunday. Pince. then my organization. District No. 15. of the International Association of Machinists. is be ing us»d by the Hearst people as having been connected with the Hearst mass meeting and parade or. Thursday nfght. Labor men have been aid to 'roof for Hearst, though Thomas Rock was betrayed, and if there ever was an honest man he was. (Applause.). Air. Hearst hasn't shown up as well as he might have done because of the dirty deals he has made. He doesn't own the unions." Here the first hearty outburst of applause took I lace, which lasted for several minutes. Cedar then protested against the manner In which Chairman Hatch of the executive com mittee was turned down at the last meeting of the Central Federated Union, Turning to the chairman, he said: You approved of the Independent party as a delegate of this body when it was first formed. yet you allowed the chairman of its executive committee when he was called upon for a re port In which the methods of the Hearst people were rhown up to be treated as if he were a scoundrel and to be insulted repeatedly. Thank God that I am able to get a chance to speak for him to-day. There was so much hot air around last Sunday that it was importable to ■el a chance. Every effort was made to put Mm in a bad light, but I say that his report was true. Statements have been mad« on be half of my organization apparently by th Hearst agents that District So. IS had decided 10 Join ii. ihe Hearst demonetisation on Thurs day night. I want Co repudiate the statements. The announcement that my organization in dorsed Mr. Hearst was an unmitigated lie. (Ap. planer) Labor leaders have rushed into print for Mr. Hearst, but I want to say that though there may be members of it who will vote for Mm, District No. 16 -ii.] not indorse him and I hope Mr. Hearst will be shown, up as he act ually Is <Ai'plsuse. i Thie co-delc^ate of OVdar, James Wilson, is a Hearst mar.. He got up and said that he di<l r;ot want the public to think that the Central Federated Union as a body was against Mr. Hearst, and then he made a speech lauding' Mr. 1 '••&!>• SUPPORT FOR THOMAS ROCK. Several of th* delegates declared that Thomas Itock. the candidate for Senator in the I4ih Dis trict, should be indorsed. One of the delegates said that there was not a redeeming feature in the character c:' Rock's opponent, Thomas F. G.-«»<Jy. The nan.c of Hearst was slipped in once or tv. ice, but did not bring applause, except from one or two del«;ra.t?s here and there and a num- her of Hearst men in the visitors' gallery. It •a* evidently arytr.inz but a Hearst meeting. "If you are Indorsing any one.," said Morrli Brown, of Cigannakers* Union, No. 144. once a Socialist candidate for Controller, "you ought to inters* I v ; . T.

Tp-d»r. f»j r and ro]d To-morrow, fair and .old; northmit wind*. MR. CARNEGIE HERE. CAIJJI HEARST DISGRACE. Says Election Would Make "Tri umphant Democracy Ashamed." Andrew Carnegie came home yesterday on the Celtic. He has always been strongly anti- Hes.rKt, but never more so than in th« present campaign. "What is the betting on the election?" was the flrst question he asked the newspaper men. When told that it waa 8 to 1 on Hughes he re plied: "That's good." Mr. Carnegie then explained to the newspaper men why he was opposed to Mr. Hearst, the reasons being substantially the same aa those he advanced in the city campaign a year ago. "This 1b not a party contest, but one between the best and the worst people," he said; "a contest between the man who seeks ofnee and a man whom the office se«ks. I think New York State would be disgraced by a man who uses such methods as Mr. Hearst. "The workingman should notice that it Is money that is doing it all. Without money he never would have been heard from, and he uses his money to advance his own interests, and that I call base. In case of the election of such a man as Hearst triumphant Democ racy would have to hide its head." Mr. Carnegie anticipated the reporters by firing at them: "Will Roosevelt succeed him self?" "That is a question," he answered, "which will be settled by the representatives of the people, voicing the demand of the nation. It is some thing which perhaps the President will have nothing to say about. There is one contingency by which he would be bound, or fail in his duty to his country. Supposing the Republican convention meets and resolves that there is no other standard bearer who can carry our party to victory, and nominates the President to suc ceed himself and then adjourns? Here is a con tingency which the President could never have Imagined. If ho tailed to respond, in the opin ion of the people who believe as I do, he would be Judged by history recreant to his duty." Several attempts were made to interrupt Mr. Carnegie, but he would have none of it. Half a dozen questions pertaining to subjects quite foreign to those uppermost In his mind were asked him, but he never so much as shook his head in recognition. "I've got some ropy for you, boys," he went on as If it were a strategic movement to evade the hundred and one questions. Then he launched into the praises of simplified spelling. "It would be better for the English language," he said, "if the simplified method of spelling were adopted. The strong feature about the re form spelling is that every philologist and every man who can be accounted an authority on the subject Is for the reform. Of course, there are always cranks that want to make a big ripple in the stream by sticking up against it. I have met leading philologists of Britain, and they as sure me that it must be admitted that no lan guage in the civilized world is in such a deplora ble condition as our own. The three hundred words selected are only a beginning. " The London Times," which at first was very bitter against the reform, thought that the American branch of the Reformed Spelling As sociation had gone off on its own hook and had left the philologists of Great Britain behind. When it understood that the laws made by the spelling board of the American association agreed with those made by the British associa tion "The Times' had a very strong editorial ad vising joint action, which. I think, will be taken. Measure? hßve been taken to have the two branches meet in conference. I hope that dele gates from Australia anil Canada will attend. Tho reform is bound to come." "If the reform spelling Is adopted, how can thf> children who have been taught the new spelling enjoy your libraries?"' he was asked. Mr. Carnegie hesitated a moment only. "That Is a foolish question to ask," he said. "Ther» j Is no possibility of changing tho lan guage in this generation. If the boy reads 'crost' for 'crossed' and fUosofy* for 'philosophy' he will have no more difficulty in understanding than we do now reading the old fashioned books with the old fashioned 's". Why. in reading such 1 often mistake V for T. He was asked how he could advance reform spoiling. "Every man who knows that our spelling Is monstrous," he replied, "should resolve to be come himself a spell ing reformer. 1 don't write 'ough' or 'phy'. but I -write 'fy'. I spell "enough* 'enuf.' and in that way prai Use what T preach. That is tho way to make this thing go. If every paper would take one word and print it in that way then the public would bo oome aocustomod to it. Teach one word at a timo and then lake another. The public would easily learn it then and once learned it would not be forgotten." _ PULAJANES KILL THREE. Attach Made on Supply Boats in Samar Fails.

[By Telegraph to The Tribune] Cleveland. Oct. 28. — Secretary Taft declared to-night, in discussing the probaule results <>f th«> campaign in New York, that if William R. Hearst Is elected Governor of New York ho would bo the Democratic candidate for the Pres idency. He said: "If William R. Hearst is elected Governor ..f New York I believe he will be the Democratic candidate for the Presidency in 1908. Ido not see how they could keep the nomination away from him. "However," he adde<:, "I do not expect him to win. I have every reason to believe, from as surances which I have received recently, that Mr. Hughes will be elected. Mr. Hearst has made a surprising flght. At times it has seemed as though he might become dangerous, but I be lieve that lime has passed. From now on until the election I expect to s«?e Mr. Hughes be* oine stronger. "On«? of the surprising features of Mr. Hearst's campaign has be*-n his denuJiciation of the Dem ocratic state machine. He has gone ahead in defiance of it. and seemingly has forced some of his bitterest opponents to support him. Should Mr. Hearst be elected he would overshadow Mr. Bryan Immeasurably. And yet. in the end, it would be thf cane of Mr. Bryan over again." OPPOSITION TO HEARST. Congressman Watson Finds That If Prevails Upstate. [By Telegraph to The Tribune.] Richmond.

"I found, however." said Mr. Watson, "that what they call the upstate districts are not favorable to Hearst. Ido not believe that any of the Cleveland Democrats will support him. I talked with many who said they would not do •o, and I was assured that opposition to Hearst prevailed throughout that part of the state." FOOTBALL KILLS SCHOOLBOY.

Alcantara Prepared to Succeed Castro by Force. [By Telegraph to The Tribune] Philadelphia. Oct. 28.— Cabled advices from Caracas report a situation amounting to a grave crisis affecting vast American Interests in Venezuela. President Castro, in spite of re cent den'als, is said to be paralyzed and unable either to walk or to speak. He communicates COLONEL- FRANCISCO ALCANTARA. Who may be the next President of Venezuela. i Photograph hy Pach Brothers, taken vrhen Alcantara was a. cadet at Weit Point. ) his desires by feeble writings, and his true con dition is held a state secret. Spies and paid agents representing other countries and foreign corporate interests haunt the palare, and are most persistent in their hunt for news. At the suggestion of Castro himself, General Alcantara is camping just outside the city of Caracas with several hundred troops, and his present activities promise a coup d'etat similar to that which made Castro President. Alcantara is Castro's choice for dictator, and the troops controlled by him will decide the issue unless General Juan Vicente Gomez consents to enlist the people in a civil war. General Gomez Is the constitutional Vice- President of Venezuela, and the great mass of the people favor him as chief administrator, but present indications are that he will have to fight the forces under Alcantara to secure the Presidency, even with the almost unanimous support of the better element throughout the country. At the moment Castro and his intimate ad visers are debating the question of having Castro surrender hi* office to Alcantara now. just as he retired several months ago in favor of Gomez, who developed unexpected adminis trative qualities. By installing Alcantara aa President now it is thought that the threatening civil war can be averted, or at least be confined to the bands of revolutionists which have been harrying Castro ever since he has been in office. The present grave situation is no part of the long continued revolution directed against Castro as a man and as an official. This uprising. It is declared, haa back of it a determination to In stall a truly representative government. The friends of Castro are said to be willing to plunge the country into war rather than submit to the will of the people as expressed by ballot. Alcantara can be depended upon to continue all of the systems established by Castro and to re tain the Castro Cabinet almost to a man. It has been known here for some time that President Castro preferred General Alcantara as his successor to Vice-President Vicente Gomel, whose power he fears and of whose influence over the army h« is jealous. General Alcantara wai graduated from the United States Military Acad emy at West Point about eleven years ago and is still a young man. He is the son of the late Fran cisco L. Alcantara, former President of Ven e-uela. On the completion of his military studies in this country the young man returned to Venezuela, where he was made colonel of artillery. He ren dered valuable services in the field and was pro moted to a generalship. President Castro appointed him President of the State of Aragua. which office he now holds. , HURLED FROM AUTO.

The last car of the three which left the track clung to the trestle for a minute or two. and the only ones on the doomed train who saved their lives crawled through the win dows. . v A conservative estimate late to-night puts the dead at about seventy. About twenty are injured. After Jumping the track the cars bumped along the trestle for a hundred feet, hesitating in the deadly work they were about to do.

JL BIG CROWD GATHERS It did not take long for the report of the wreck to spread over the town, and In less than an hour thousands of persons were standing around watching the work of rescue that was being attempted by a few men in rowboats. With the spread of the report, many got out their launches and In these Chief of Police Maxwell, a few policemen and a corps of firemen were soon among the fleet of boats. The Chief of Police directed operations. As soon as bodies were taken out of the wreck they were brought to the city and placed in the old Empire Theatre Building, which had been turned into a temporary morgue. THREE ESCAPE FROM SECOND CAR. Three persons, it is said, escaped from the middle or second car of tho train while the cars were filling with water and settling Two of these were David S. Emley. of No. 1316 South Broad street, and Helen Gilbert, eight years old. of No. H53 Lyon street. Camden. Emley started down to the shore this after noon to give tho little girl a trolley ride. He said that when the train flrst left the rails everybody Jumped up with fearfv.l screams. There was the wfldMt disorder. Terror was written on every face as the Imprisoned and helpless people realized that they were toppling into the water. "I grasped the parcel basket that runs alon^ PRICE THUEK CENTS, the whole length of the car." said Mr. Emley. "Helen began to scream, but for some reason or other I kept my head and told her not to get frightened. I picked her up in my arms as th* car was filling with th© water and pushed her up to the roof and pulled open ono of the ven tilators and told her to breathe through that while I tried to find and open a window that w might get out. GROPED ABOUT UNDER WATER. "Helen had been sitting on the opposite aide of the car and had had the window up a little way. I groped about and finally succeeded in getting my fingers under it and pushed it up. By that time the water "- a filling the car and the people were strangling all around ma. It was all I could do to breathe. I grasped Halea by the arm and struggled through th© window, almost choking. I got to the outside of th« window and pulled the child through. I cotslfl swim, and it was fortunate for me that I could. I gave a bound and rose to the surface of tB« water and pushed the little* girl ahead of me. When we got to the top a couple of men in a skiff cam« over and picked us tip and took n» to shore. I was almost gone when picked up.**. The men who rescued Emley and his chars** said they had picked up a young girl about nine teen years old. Just ttfore they found htm. and had taken her to shore. There were twenty membei s of the Royal Ar tillery Band, of Philadelphia, on board the train, and most of these were sitting in the last car. Some of them escaped with slight Injuries, but most of them were crowned. One of the trucks toppled over on the side of the third car and crushed it in like an ega; shell. Many were buried beneath the great weight of Iron. CHOPS HOLE IN CAR ROOF. Charles Kessler. a merchant here, was the first to reach the scene. He got an axe, Jumped on top of the partly submerged car and began to hack the roof to liberate the imprisoned pas sengers. He got some of the women out and above water. T. C. Smith, of Newfield and A. R. Kelly. of Jeffersonville. N. Y-. who were passengers on , the ill fated train, got off at Pleasantville. for no other reason than that they changed their minds about coming to Atlantic City. They heard of the accident afterward and came over * thanking their lucky stars that they changed their plans. Among the dead at the hospital was an un identified woman, wearing a wedding rh | marked "T. P. P. to I. N. G." and two other diamond rings and a pearL She wore a whit* waist, black skirt and new shoes, and was appar ently about thirty years old. Her body now He« at the Crow ley Morgue. PULLED WIFE THROUGH WINDOW. According 1 to the story eff Harry C. De»m?r, of No. 2570 Reese street. Philadelphia, It is won derful that even the few who did escape from the last car were able to do so. Many of them owe their lives to him as It was. Both . 31/. Deemer and his wife are in the Atlantic CftV Hospital. The husband Is suffering from bruise* and cuts from broken glass, received in making his own escape and in breaking ways for others. Mrs. Deemer has a fractured skull and a severe ly injured spine. It is not likely she will re cover fully. Wrapped in bandages, Deemer to-night told the story of how he and his wife were saved. "We were riding in the last car, and every window was closed." he said. "We felt the Jap when the train Jumped the track. I looked from the window and saw the first car as It slashed Into the water. The second car followed and then the front end of our car plunged from th* bridge and came to an abrupt stop.
