BAILEY IN DEBATE ATTORNEY CRANE HIS OPPONENT IN A TALK. Special DUpatcli to The Star. HOUSTON. Texas. October 6.?From all portions of Texas came leading democrats to hear tonight's debate between former Attorney General M. M. Crane and United States Senator Joseph W. Bailey. The au dttorium was packed with more than 4.000 people. The crowd was largely with Bailey. Crane opened the debate. He went at length into the WatersPierce case, and sought to show that in effect Senator Bailey had Bold his Influence In securing the readmission of that corporation. In his rejoinder Senator Bailey explicitly denied that he had sold his influence to the Waters-Pierce Company. He asserted that ha had done no wrong to his constituents In accepting fees for his services. He asserted that the Waters-Pierce Company was admitted to the state while he was at Washington and ignorant of anything hf'i n <r fii mo tKn* O ?" v a** wiai UU CC11UU. After Hearst. Senator Bailey made the assertion that W. ft. Hearst (thougli he did not call his name) was making an endeavor to capture the national democratic convention in the inter% est of socialism; that this attack had been Inaugurated upon Bailey to destroy him. That Bailey was to be pushed aside that Hearst and his allies might have a freer hand and also as an object lesson to any other democrat who might oppose the program that they would be ruthlessly slaughtered by the weight of millions of dollars and conscienceless newspapers. An ugly Incident occurred Just at the cloae of Crane's opening argument. He reierrea to certain practices in publt: life which he regarded as Improprieties. A man in the audience said: "But they are republicans that do that." Crane replied. "Yes. but there are some democrats who ought to be In Jail." A voice: "Yes, Joe Bailey ought to be In . jail." Bailey was on his feet at once and replied. "If the person who says that will make himself public. I will see that he does not get Into the penitentiary." Jamaica Products for Canal Zone.

[THE OHIO CAMPAIGN Opened With Rousing Mass Meeting in Cincinnati. HALL CROWDED TO DOORS Addresses by Senators Foraker and Beveridge. ON GREAT DUTY OF THE HOUR Representative Long-worth's Bride Heard His First Political Speech? Beveridge's Reference to Labor. ??? CINCINNATI. Ohio. October 6.-Unlted States Senators J. B. Foraker of Ohio and A. J. Beverldga of Indiana and Representatives Nicholas Ijoneworth and H. P. Goebel of Ohio participated in the opening of the republican campaign in this city tonight. The Blaine Club escorted the speakers to Music Hall, which was crowded to the doors. Senator Foraker, when introduced as chairman of the meeting, returned thanks for the honor, congratulated the republicans on ^thelr big mass meeting and on their local ticket, and then discussed more fully the congressional ticket, which he considered most Important. He said: "The county ticket la important, the state ticket Is important, but the most important of all things connected with this approaching election Is the congressional ticket. ' "You doubtless read In the papers the speech of President Roosevelt at Harrisburg. If so you must have observed that he served notice on the American people that he is not more than half done with the good work he has in hand. He referred to the legislation that has been enacted, said that It Is his purpose to enforce it, and then he appealed to the American people to give him an Indorsement at the approaching election, not simply by republican majorities. but by giving him a republican House of Representatives. That, my fellow citizens, is the great duty of the hour. If you desire the second half of the adminstratlon of Theodore Roosevelt to be as brilliant and satisfactory as the first you must give him a republican and not a democratic house. What would he do with a democratic majority In the House of Representatives? Nobody knows what it would mean.

And it is the belief even among the democrats that the party is badly off, no matter In which man's hand It may be. But we have an especial duty In this respect. That duty is to send back to Washington to represent us in the next Congress of the United States Nicholas Longworth and Herman P. Goebel." The senator praised the work of both congressmen highly. Representative Nicholas Longworth. whose bride, seated In the balcony, heard her husband for the first time in a political aoppch. was introduced and briefly spoke In support of his party principles. Representative Herman P. Goebel of the second district. the other of Cincinnati's two congressional districts, followed, and then Senator Beveridge was Introduced. Senator Beveridge'i Bemarks. Senator Beveridge said: "There are those who seek to create the Impression that the republican party is at war with labor. Such men, if they are republicans, misrepresent the party, and If they are democrats, they slander the party. The only national laws in the Interest of labor ever enacted were written and passed by the republican party. The only organized frit-ml of labor In our history has been the republican party. It could not be otherwise, for our thirteen million voters are nearly all laboring men. "It was a republic in Congress that enacted the first eight-hour law in this country, and It was signed by a republican President, Ulysses S. Grant. "There Is the law for the Inspection of all steam vessels navigating the waters of the United States. It Is the work of the republican party. There Is the law punishing the man or corporation that tries to influence his employe's vote by threat of discharge from his work or ejectment from a rented house?that law was written by the republican party. "There is the alien contract labor law: the skilled labor law in the government printing office; the law for payment of afl government employes ror nouaays; me law for the Incorporation of national trades unions; the law prohibiting the contracting out of the labor of federal prisoners; the board of arbitration law; the territorial coal mine regulation and Inspection law; the law for the commission to settle differences between interstate railroads and their employes; the Indemnity law guaranteeing the payment by contractors building government buildings of all labor In their employ?every one of them enacted by the republican party. "There is a law prohibiting railroads from forbidding employes to enter labor organizations or be members thereof or discriminating against such employe on account of such membership?that is republican law.

LOUIS DTJA1TE DEAD. Was in Government Service TwentyTwo Years. Louis Duane. a clerk In the office of the auditor for the Post Office Department, died suddenly Thursday night at his residence, 1T41 G street northwest. His wife was visiting relatives in Freehold, N. J., and when she arrived here in response to a telegram and found that her husband was dead she j fainted and afterward was in a semi-consrious condition for a number of hours. Mr. Duane had been in the Treasury Department in some branch or other for twen ty-two years, jtie was a nign-ciass ciem, whose services were greatly appreciated by those above him. Mr. Duane was a great-grandson of Benjamin Franklin and a grandson of William P. Duane, Secretary of the Treasury under President Jackson.

October 6.?Washington dispatches received here today stating that the British and American governments have arranged a modus vlvendl regulating herring fishery In these waters and giving what are assumed to be the correct terms of the arrangement, evoke bitter criticisms on the part of the press and the public. The Kvenlng Telegram, the premier's personal organ, declares that Newfoundland has been sacrificed once more, this time to American fishermen, and that the colonial government and people have been ridden over rough shod tn tne marier. i ne paper turiner says that the modus vlvendl was concludcd against the advice and despite the protests of the government, and that it now behooves the government to resist this bureaucratic action and to carry out stringently the foreign fishing vessels act of 1905 and the bait act which Downing street officials cannot override, because the law of the land is still supreme in the king's realms. The Evening Herald says that It cannot credit the statement that the Americans have been granted the right to ship men in colonial waters, aa such action would I be Inexcusable. PROBABLE INCOME TAX President May Recommend to the Conaress ENACTMENT OF SUCH LAW Or Some Form of Government Bakeoff on Private Fortunes. EXTRACTS FROM SPEECHES j I Hade by Him at Different TimesSupreme Court Kay Reverse % Its Opinion. The belief Is growing in political circles that President Roosevelt will send a mes sug? iu Lungress oeiore nis term expires recommending the imposition of an income tax, or some form of government rake-off on private fortunes. Everything that he has said Id recent public addresses lends color to Chat opinion. Of course the right of the government to Impose such tax would have to be af- 1 firmed by the Supreme Court of tne United States. Supreme courts change their opinions with their membership, and President Roosevelt will have opportunity within his own term of office to dictate fhe appoint uctii vi inu-iuiuiiB ui iuc nivmDcrsLip. m the last decision of the court upon the constitutionality of the Income tax the vote of the court was 5 to 4 against it, a reversal of opinion on rehearing. On the first hearing of the case the court stood the other way, but some members subsequently- saw a new light. Supreme Court May Agree. ! With this narrow margin of difference in legal opinion, and with two prospective vacancies on the bench to fill, the President may be able, if he so desires, to feel assured of the approval of the tribunal of last resort for the program of governmental supervision of personal effort which he appears to have in mind. Of course, accidents will happen In the beet regulated families, anA dijwnnolntmpfita nrnir Tt wa? said that the President was bitterly disappointed because Mr. Justice Homes, hds then recent appointee to the bench, did not concur with the majority of the court in the decision of the Northern Securities merger case. However, it is thought that If the President Is so inclined he will have no trouble in finding among the great array of legal talent in this country appointees to the Supreme Court who concur in * '? views on , government supervision of fortunes,' provided Congress passes a law. That the President has in mind the recommending of such legislation to Congress is assumea oy nuuiy people, on in? score 01 his refcent public utterances. In his speech in this city last April on the occasion of the laying of the cornerstone of the House of Representatives' office building the President made his first essay in this new field of economics. He aald: The President's Utterances. "As a matter of personal conviction and without pretending to discuss the details or formulate the system, I feel that we shall ultimately have to consider the adoption of some such scheme as that of a progressive tax on all fortunes, beyond a certain amount, either given In life or devised or bequeathed upon death to any Individual?a tax so framed as to put it out of the power of the owner of one of these enormous fortunes to hand on more than a certain amount to any one individual; the tax, of course, to be imposed by the national and not the state government. Such taxation should, of course, be aimed merely at the inheritance or transmission in their entirety of those fortunes swollen beyond all healthy limits." In his Harrlsbui* speech day before yesterday the President took another step in the direction of national control of private auu uuBiiicsB iui luitrs, aajr iu? . "But it is our clear duty to see, in the interest of the people, that there is adequate supervision and control over the business use of the swollen fortunes of the day, and also wisely to determine the conditions upon which these fortunes are to be transmitted and the percentage they shall pay to the government whose protecting arm alone enables them to exist." The people who believe that the President hopes to see a reversal of the Supreme Court's decision on the income tax, or something allied to it, base their opinion on his utterances at Harrlsburg when he said: "The many legislative actions and many judicial decisions which I am confident time will show to h^e been erroneous and a damage to the country would have been avoided if our legislators and jurists had ftppruiicucu Lilts uiaiici ui cii<U/iiii^ anu constructing the laws of the land In the spirit of your great Pennsylvania^, Justice Wilson?in the spirit of Marshall and of Washington." May Have Popular Support. The people who hold to this opinion go on to say that there will probably be popular support to a great extent of the President's supposed aim in this direction. When the income tax decision was handed down there was widespread discontent, and the charge was made that the Supreme Court had been "packed" by capital against the popular will. Those folk, it is claimed, will hold this time that President Roosevelt has as good a right to "pack" the court in favor of the popular will if it is expressed by Congress in support or me Roosevelt theory of national control of private fortunes. POWER TO BE PLENARY GOV. MAGOON TO BE RESPONSIBLE ONLY TO THE PRESIDENT. Gov. Charles E. Magoon will exercise in Cuba the power which was vested in Gen. Leonard Wood when he ruled Cuba under the title of military general. Gov. Magoon will be known as the provisional governor, but his authority will be plenary, and he will be subject only to the orders of the President and the Secretary or war. Cuba will have the semblance of an autonomous government, and the United States will continue to be represented in Havana by a minister and the consuls will continue at their, posts. Cuba will be represented In , Washington by a minister, and the Cuban consuls are expected to remain at their stations. It Is officially stated that there has been and will be no subversion of the Cuban constitution. By Incorporating the Piatt amendment into her constitution Cuba provided for Just such an emergency as has risen and for the United States to intervene and restore order; consequently, it Is said, Cuba is still to be governed by constitutional means and by machinery such as is provided in any community when martial nwouurv. Ourinar the occuoancv of Cuba it ia not expected that the Cuban congress will exercise any power. In fact there is no method by which it can be assembled unless Gov. Mogoon should deem such action necessary to prepare the way for another election. Such a meeting is not necessary under present conditions, for the provisional governor by decree may perform all functions looking to the ;e-establishment - of the civil government of Cuba.

RUNNING ONLY 4 BOATS STATUS or STEAMBOAT XXTS STRIKE AT BALTXXOBS. BALTIMORE, Md.. October ?T?The first defection from the ranks of the men occurred today when two mates returned to their employment. They completed the crew of the Virginia, which sailed tonight for Wicomico river landings. Capt. Willard Thomson, general manager of the combined steamboat' companies, stated today that they were running four boats at the present time. He admitted that it was practically impossible to get men who* were familiar with the waters to navigate the steamers, and that so long as their officers remained out the companies would not be aoie to operate more man a lew veawas. He said the Immediate necessities of the farmers on the eastern shore for fertiliser had been relieved through co-operation with the shippers of the product, and the management had also granted shippers the free use of the companies* wharves here for such outside vessels as they desired to utilise in this emergency. Capt. Thomson again today renewed his invitation to the men to meet him with a committee of their own members, insisting, however, as he has all along, upon the captains leaving the Masters and Mates' Association. Talk of Independeat Line. Announcement wu made today that an independent line of steamers will be started between Baltimore and Rappahannock river points. The commission men and other merchants who do business with bay points are using gasoline power boats and schooners in an endeavor to save their business with these places. In a letter of considerable length, addressed to Charles J. Fox. chief of the state bureau of statistics and information, a copy of which was given the Associated Press tonight, Capt. Thomson, replying to Mr. Fox's offer to President Charles E. Pugh of the companies Involved in the tieup, declines Mr. Fox's offer looking to arbitration of the difficulty. Capt. Thomson takes the ground that hla companies are willing to meet their captains individually, collectively or by a com'mittee composed of the captains themselves and to discuss and adjust any question of pay that may be brought up by them, but that no such question has up to the present time been so brought up, and that, therefore, there is no question of pay open between the companies and their employes. According to Capt. Thomson's letter, the one question is as to whether the captains shall be permitted1 to belong to an association of which their subordinate officers are also members, and this point, the letter says, cannot be submitted to the arbitration of any one. TO BOOST CANNON BOOM MARQUETTE CLUB BAJTQUET IV -HIS HONOR OCTOBER 0. Special Diapatrh to The Star. CHICAGO. October 6.?Joseph 0. Cannon's presidential boom will get a substantial boost next Tueaday, Chicago day. The Marquette Club has announced a banquet in his honor, to be held at the Auditorium, at which J. Adam Bede of Minnesota, a youngster in Congress, will tell why the veteran of the House should succeed President Roosevelt. The Marquette Club is used to backing winners in the presidential race. It Is more than thirty years since Illinois had a Dres Identiai candidate, but the Marquette Club was sponsor for McKinley's first boom and that of Benjamin Harrison, with what success, as the club's announcement says, "the world knows." It la therefore deemed most fitting that "Joe" Cannon should be taken up right away, so the club won't lose the chance to get on an Illinois winner. Besides Mr. Cannon and Mr. Bede there will be other speakers of national prominence at the banquet. Representative Boutell will talk on "Chicago's Marquette Club;" Rev. Frank Bristol of Washington, formerly of. Chicago, noted as a pulpit orator, will respond to the toast "A Nation Favored of God;" Frank C. Goudy, a Colorado orator, will tell about the west, and John Watson, noted congressional whip, will make a speech in which predictions of "Uncle Joe's" victory at the national convention and In the election of 1908 will figure largely. The club's announcement of the banquet and the way In which it Is expected to give Mr. Cannon a "cinch" am the presidential nomination says: "McKinley always spoke of the Marquette as the mascot club. Hence It was most natural that 'Uncle Joe' should come to the Marauette. even If his is the most popular name mentioned for the presidency today. Tlie people like his rugged honesty. They know him and they believe in him as they believe In Roosevelt. It is a long time before the convention will assemble that shall nominate a candidate for Fresident, but Chicago and this vast prairie commonwealth is not content to wait to do honor to that grand old man of Illinois." TALK ON THE RACES TILLMAN SATS TIME HAS COME TO ACT. AUGUSTA. Ga., October 6.?In a speech on the race problem delivered here tonight. Senator B. R. Tillman declared the time had come when the south must act. and suggested the adoption of a Kuropean passport system, by which each person must have a certificate of good character before moving from a residence or home or before being received into a new section, and that any person without such certificate be imprisoned. This, he admitted, would be placing great IUI.UIIVCUICI?;C VII luc WUilCB, WI1U WUU1U have to be Included' in the law because of the fifteenth amendment, but he declared It this plan or some peaceable on: was not adopted immediately the country was surely ruahing toward the brink of an abyss which meant a horrible and bloody lace war of extermination. His speech was heard by thousands of people and was enthusiastically received. The Atlanta riots, he declared, had illuminated the situation and shown the people they were living on the crust of a volcano. The riot, he believed, would too soon be repeated in other sections if no other solution of the problem was found. $250,000 Fire in Buffalo. IBtJFFALO. N. Y.. October 6.?Charles F.

Mr. Hill said in part: "These, briefly, are the certainties of the next fifty years supported by facta ascertained beyond possibility of error.

We must determine. however, upon a national economy different from the present when our population Is approaching three times what it was In 1U00. Striking as has been found the contrast between 18d0 and 1900, that between the present and 1960 will reveal more serious features. "Practically speaking, our public lands are all occupied.

V J KOI OS GOOD TERMS Mr. and Mrs. Howard Gould Living Apart. NOT UNDER SAME ROOF Knee Early in September the Couple Hare Seemed to Disagree. * _____ t HUSBAND OFF ON HIS YACHT Mrs. Gould Is Said to Have Fallen Out With Her Spouse Because an Official Was Retained. Speriil Dliipatrh to Tbe 8t?r. NBW YORK. October 6.?Mrs. Howard Gould, who witnessed the VanderWlt cup race from her tourlnff car today, surrounded by a circle of friends, was as unapproachable as her husband, somewhere out In th? Atlantic on the yacht Niagara, when an effort wrs mad? to learn if there was truth In th*? nimur that the millionaire a nil his actress wife had agreed to separate. A few close friends of the couple there are who may be In a position ti? know the present status of the Gould domestic affairs, but they are sarins nothing. Because sine* th?r return from Europe during the first week. in September Mr. Gould and his wife have not been living under the same roof, gossip has had It that a rift had appeared between them and that the woman who was pretty Kitty Clemmons of San Francisco and I.ondon had given over her schemes of living In a castle as the wife of one of America's wealthiest men. ' . Mrs Goukl left the St. Regis, where she ? ' has been living alone for the last three weeks, on Friday, and with her trunks and dogs traveled to Castle Gould, the country home of herself and husband, at Sands Point. L. I. She did not leave word at the hotel whether she would return soon or not. Howard Gould, who has been staying at the Waldorf-Astoria since he returned from his European cruise on his yacht Niagara, went out on the sound on his yacht yesterday and has not yet returned. It has been whispered that the reason for the apparent break between Gould and his wife can be traced to the cause for last year's fruitful trouble, the projected Castle Gould, which Is to be built In semblance of Kilkenny Castle, on the Gould estate at Sands Point. Superintendent Wot Liked. The superintendent of the ground* that surround the present summer home there and the man who has in charge the laying out of the landscape features that are to give the proposed cast la a fitting setting, has fallen into disfavor with Mm Gould and has had his case supported by Mr. Gould, so it is said. Becautc her husband would not discharge this major domo of Castle Gould report has it that the mtstrem of the estate has refused longer to live under the Castle Gould roof. Whether or not the offending superintendent was on the premises when Mrs. Gould made her trip to Sands Point on Friday could not be learned today. It Is possible that the fate of the projected castle at Sands Point hangs on the settlement of the present reported difficulties between Gould and his wife. Already Mrs. Gould has asserted her authority in fHa matter rtf th? <v>nHtriiHlnn r?f fbit nrn. posed $4,000,010 building. Abner J. Haydel, the architect secured by Mr. Gould to design his castle, was the one who Incurred Mrs. Gould's displeasure last, and who brought his grievances into court. When Gould determined to reproduce "Kilkenny Castle" on his estate In Sanda Point. Haydel was taken to Ireland by the Goulds to view the original castle on the estate of the Marquis of Ormonde. The old pile in Ireland contained sixty rooms. Mrs. Gould decided that she would have 200 rooms In her American reproduction. Reputation at Stake. The architect dJd not see how his professional reputation would allow him to graft the extra number of rooms onto the original model, and stoutly contested the point with Mrs. Gould. The mistress of Castle Gould was obdurate. As a consequence Hayden threw up his contract with the Goulds and sued to recover his fees on the basis of $4,000,000, the amount that the proposed castle wa? to cost. Hay del won his suit in the Nassau county supreme court, but an appeal was taken from the Judgment. and final decision In the case has not yet been rendered. At the time of the trial of this case the plaintiff testified to some stormy scenes between himself and Mrs. Gould. He cited one instance when at a conference between himself and the Goulds at the WaldorfAstoria Mrs. Gould told him to get out before he was thrown out. Mrs. Gould figured In another suit as lately as April last, when Henry Jones Thaddeus, a portrait painter, sued her to recover $5,01)0, the alleged value of a por trait he had made of her which she had refused to accept when completed. Mr*. Gould's defense was that the gown In which she was represented In the painting: was not at all the same gown that she had worn during the sittings, and that, anyway. she did not consider the picture a truthful portrait.
