The driver of the ill-fated car, W. E. S. Tipton of 858 F street north east. although swathed heavily in bandages over % severe scalp wound, and suffering from a cut across his throat and painful bruises all over his body, appeared before Judge Grif fith at Forestville yesterday, and gave bond for his appearance tomor row night at the inquest. Injuries to Others. Other occupants of the car and their injuries were: Miss Betty Grace i Tucker of 1323 Pennsylvania avenue I southeast, actress of Earl Carroll’s] “Vanities.” formerly of the •’Follies." now in Providence Hospital for obser vation of injuries believed by her to have resulted when the car rolled on and then off of her; Miss Maude Dono van, injifred wrist; Miss Belle Horn ing. 1319 18th street, injured shoulder, and John Hickey, bruises and cuts. The driver of the car declares he was driving carefully on the return from Marlboro at a speed of about thirty miles an hour, when, upon rounding a curve, strong headlights from an approaching car blinded him. The car seemed to roll over, he said: he lost consciousness and was told later that he was the only person of the six occupants to remain in the vehicle. He was found clutching the steer ing post, from which the wheel had been broken. The top of the car was smashed and it had righted itself on its four wheels on the road, pointed back toward Marlboro, in the oppo-‘ site direction from which it had been going at the time of the accident. Tipton believes the wheels of the ear got off the cement road. Blames Blinding l ights. Tipton said the approaching car suddenly turned his lights from dim to bright when nearby and that he himself shut his eyes, jammed on his brakes, tried to miss the oncoming vehicle and then bring his car back Into the road. Miss Tucker said she had appealed to the driver not to make so much speed and had asked him to slow down, just before the accident took Place. Arrangements for the funeral services of Kenneth Fleeter had not been completed last night, but it had been decided that burial would be in Arlington, as Fleeter served in the air service during the World War, part of the time overseas. Serv ices will be held from the home of his wife and her parents, Mr. and Mrs. John McCann, 4714 Fifteenth street, probably Tuesday. Among the ;urvivors are his widow, Mrs. Agnes Flester; his mother, liv ing in Baltimore, and these brothers and sisters: Guy, Ellery, Fred and Joseph Flester. and Mrs. Morris Woodbridge of Washington and Miss Catherine Flester of BaJtimore. DEMOCRATS JUGGLE FIGURES, SAYS G. 0. P. Tariff on Rubber Not Up 150 Per Cent, as Davis Charged, De* dares Committee. Misuse of percentage calculations in comparing the Democratic and Ford ney-McCumber tarifT laws by Demo cratic party spokesmen, is claimed by the Republican National Committee in a statement issued last night. As an instance, the statement re calls that John W. Davis, the Demo cratic presidential candidate, in his speech at Seagirt, N. J„ August 22, declared that in the present tariff law’ the duty on rubber footwear was rais ed 150 per cent. “Apparently what Mr. Davis, or his advisers did,” the statement said, “was to subtract from the Republican duty, which is 25 per ceijt, the Demo cratic duty, which w’as 10 per cent, and divide the difference, 15 per cent! by the 10 per cent, thus arriving at 150 per cent as the duty increase on the goods. It is not. It is the in crease on the Democratic percentage. “The layman naturally concludes the present duty on rubber footwear is 150 per cent plus, instead of the actual 25 per cent. This is the use of percentage of percentages, instead of percentages of value.” BLACK HILLS FREAK MINE PRODUCES 68 MINERALS One of Largest Crystals of Beryl Ever Found in That Section Is of Special Interest.

BRITISH PARIS LAUNCH CAMPAIGN Manifestos Issued Indicate Fight Will Be Made Largely on Home Affairs. n.T iht* Aafloomicri l*rr*H. IA>NL*ON, October 11.—The throe big parties haw loot Itoio in placing their platforms before the electorate. Three election manifestos are out to night. The Labor manifesto is aiipiot. among others, by Ramsay MacDoaald, John Hubert Cl) lies, Hubert Smtlie, George Lan.sbury and Arthur Henderson. The Conservollve manifesto is signed by Stanley Halt!win, and the Überal by If. 11. Asquith ami Mr. Lloyd-Georse. The first noticeable feature, -which undoubtedly Is an outgrowth of the new experience of the country In having had a labor administration for the first time, is the small part now played in the election literature by foreign affairs and the defense ques tion. These are scarcely mentioned In the I«abor manifesto, apart from the ftussian treaties and a brief par agraph claiming credit fbr the im proved relations with France and Germany, and noting the important steps taken at Geneva toward arbi tration. security and general disar mament. In the Liberal document allusions are equally scanty, but in the Con servat've manifesto, following tho Tory tradition, the empire and for eign relations are given greater at tention. but still are overshadowed by social and economic questions. In reference to foreign affairs Mr. Bald win pronounces his party for “co operation in all matters admitting of common action with the Vnfted States" for the support and strength ening of the I-ieague of Nations on practical lines. Charges Nary Neglect. With regard to defense, he say? that the Unionists, if returned to power, will have to “examine afresh the position in which the defenses of the empire have been left by the present administration" and. while favoring any practical proposals for the general limitation of armaments, must “scrutinise carefully. In con junction with the dominions, the far reaching commitments and Implica tions of the scheme recently put for ward at Geneva.” None of the manifestos touches upon any such questions as Egypt or Irak The competition between the three parties is clearly on the ground of so cial and economic reforms and on these alone. After the result of the general election a year ago it is not surprising to find that the question i of free trade versus protection has also almost vanished from the picture. It is true that the Liberal document pronounces unshakably for free trade, but the Labor manifesto does not mention the subject Mr. Baldwin admits that the last election settled the question, but he still advocates a safeguarding industries act which the Labor administration abolished and supports measures of imperial pref erence. which, he declares, "we shall steadily keep to the front." No Slogan Procured. A noteworthy point Is that while the Liberals charge Labor with the entire responsibility for the projec tion of the election, the Labor igfeni fosto declares that the government was defeated by a partisan combina tion of Liberals and Tories. Moreover, as was foreseen, there is no great na tional question or election slogan forthcoming. All three manifestos concentrate on virtually the same social program. The Labor manifesto deals largely with reforms already achieved, or those which were contemplated, but which Labor -was prevented from carrying out by the refusal of the Liberals to support them. Housing, education, pensions, remedial meas ures against unemployment and for bettering the condition of women and children, abolition of the slums and similar subjects occupy a big space In all the manifestos. The Liberals strongly emphasize the need of dealing with coal mining and the power question, and would authorize the state to acquire all mineral rights and provide state as sistance In the construction of super power stations for generating elec tricity. Political gossip says, although It la not mentioned In the manifesto, that Mr. Lloyd-George Is especially strong on this subject, having recently pub lished an important pamphlet on it, • Liquor Question Up. The Labor manifesto advocates re organization of the whole mining in dustry on the lines of national own ership. The Liberals contend that the excessive consumption of alcohol ought to be dealt with on bold and democratic lines. On this question labor urges a full and Impartial in quiry by a royal commission, which, it says, the government had arranged to begin next spring. With an eye to the women’s votes, Mr. Baldwin sets forth a plank for a royal commission to Inquire into the high cost of foodstuffs. The liberals favor re-establishment of economic and commercial relation with Russia, but oppose Great Britain’s guarantee ing a loan to Russia. The labor manifesto, alluding to the general pacification of Europe ac complished under the labor regime, “refuses to exclude from this pacifi cation the Russian people, with whom it is essential to resume our trade In the Interests of the unemployed and the country as a whole." Claim Tax Reduction. Labor claims great credit tor the Govern me nit's financial pojlcy. de claring that Its budgets swept away £30,000,000 annually of taxes on the people's food, and the manifesto asks: “Is it not because liberals and union ists fear the second labor budget that an excuse has been found for giving the labor government no further chance?” On the question of unemployment it declares that the labor slogan still is: "Work or maintenance,” and out lines labors’ accomplishments and in tentions. For dealing with that evil it advocates the taxation of land values and the prevention of exces sive hours of labor. It concludes: ’"The path to our goal Is long and narrow, sometimes so hard that men and women faint by the way. But we have faith in humanity; we refuse to believe that there is nothing to be done but conserve the present order which is disorder, or that the misery, demoralization and ruin that it causes to innocent men, women and children can be remedied by the perpetual repetition of 'the abstract principles of Individualism. “We appeal to the people to sup port us In our steadfast march toward a really socialist commonwealth in which there shall at least be an op portunity for good will to conquer hate and strife, and for brotherhood, if not to supersede greed, at least to set due bounds to that competition which leads only to loss and death.” Reaction. rren Louden Answers.

Those prognosticators who predict ed that after the world series this man's town would immediately settle down to business had nothing on the proverbial weather man for mistakes. It was the same old story wherever you went yesterday. People could be f orced to talk business, or talk news other than base ball —but they didn't want to. Knots of different sizes, from two up. could be seen in almost any Gov ernment department or private office, with heads close together, buzz-buzz buzzing. Their drifting conversational ends sounded something like this: "Greatest in history of some pebble, oh. boy, that $50,000 pebble was the cause of—no, confound it. pebbles didn't turn the tide, it was the fighting—boys, never mind, we've won—why argue—anyhow, old Wai ter Johnson got his, and when the Giants get over their grouch at losing they'll agree with the rest of this base b etc,, etc., etc. Hold Earnest Conference. There was no end to it. One door was suddenly burst open upon two earnest young men discuss ing something across their desks piled high with papers. “You were talking about that bounce on McNeeley’s hit, weren't you?” said the “burster” without giv ing the interrupted conversation a chance to continue and without lis tening to see what it was all about. The two grinned sheepishly. “How did you know It?" “Never mind,” was the reply, "they’re all doing it,” Throughout the Government de partments folks wore the “smile that won't come off,” with the exception of those rabid fans who couldn't stop playing the game. “Well, I slept from 2 to 4:30 this morning,’’ this heaved with a deep but whole-hearted and self-satisfied sigh of pride, from one rabid fan, who by the way is in normal times, among the calmest and most collected of men. “The rest of the time I was playing that game over again.” Radio Helped Shnt-Iss, Odds and ends of radio sets could be seen in all parts of curious places downtown, on windowsills, In closets and around desk corners—where they had performed valiant service to those shut-ins who were sacrificed to the great god of business, or of the “cant-get-away” bug. Although “I told you so” was one | of the happiest of expressions going l the rounds yesterday, there was one veteran fan In one of the Govern ment departments who took peculiar pride in his prediction, which came true —that Washington would win on© fame in New York and the next two here. The names of "Bucky" Harris and Walter Johnson were the most fre quently heard, although there was generous discussion of the grand old home team all the way down the line. A (tree With Landis. What the grizzled veterans of baseballdom thought of this world series had not percolated thoroughly through tha town early yesterday, but fans everywhere, in their more or less expert patter, enthusiastically revealed the same spirit which prompted the snowy-haired czar of base ball. Judge Landis himself, to say of the final game: *T never saw anything like it before and probably never will again. X regard it as the greatest game every played.” With feet cocked on table tops another group was discussing the chances of Washington for next year’s pennant. “Aw. shut up!” said one. “Ain’t it enough to get the championship of the world? Give me a chance to breathe, will you?” “Well, it’s all over now,” from one overjoyed fan. Play Series All Winter. “Nope," rejoined another, "the feel ing's not worn off yet. This series will be played over a million times before the season opens next Spring.” “Well, anyhow, I doubt if the elec tion gives Washington as much ex citement-" And still the word battle rages. They have been winding up the old mainspring of Washington’s base ball pep for years, and, now that Bucky Harris and his ilk have touched the trigger and set the boil to ringing. It still rings with a mighty clamor. How long will It ring? No one knows. And, furthermore, who cares? Just now let ’er ring!

CHICAGO, October IL—Kndinp up the first week of a mouth’s stumping tour with an address here tonight. Senator Uobert M. La Follette, In dependent presidential eandidate. predicted, apparently with increased confidence, that he will win a clear cut victory in the November election “The people of America are arous ed,' 1 he declared. "During the last six days 1 have spoken in six states. I have seen the people of New York, Pennsylvania. Now Jersey, Michigan, Ohio and Illinois. Everywhere it is the same story. The people are flocking to the progressive standard. In all my public life I have seen no such demonstrations of enthusiasm. ‘They are coming to our support. They are in revolt against the de cadence and corruption of the two old parties. But that is not the cause of their enthusiasm. It is far deeper They see in the progressive move ment a new hope. They find a new spirit. They know that it voices their aspirations for justice, liberty and peace. Tide Seen Hiking. "The progressive tide is rising from the Atlantic to the Pacific. It can not be restrained. It Is sweeping over the country. "Today the Democratic and Re publican candidates ar« defeated. They cannot win. We can. "We ar« not going to throw this election Into the House of Represen tatives. It will never reach the Sen ate. This election will be settled like every other presidential election in the last hundred years. It will be settled by the people of the United States at the polls on the fourth day of November. On that day they will, I am confluent, elect the progressive ticket by a substantial majority." Speak* la Armory. The Wisconsin senator spoke tonight in the 35th street armory, packed to the doors by the largest crowd he has faced since starting on hia present trip. His speech was mainly a summing up of points emphasized by him earlier in the week, and as he directed thrusts at both the old parties, reiterating that both are dominated by "private monopoly,” the audience voiced its approval by prolonged cheers. The meeting came after the most stirring day the candidate has spent. Arriving early in the morning from Cincinnati he found thousands of his supporters awaiting him at the sta tion. Through downtown streets he was escorted to his campaign head quarters behind a detail of mounted police. Following him were admirers, afoot and in automobiles. System Hales America. After tracing the development of the monopoly system in the United States, Senator La Follette, in his speech declared: "Its tools are the raflroads, the banks and the trusts. Today this system rules America. It declares whether independent factories shall be opened or closed. It determines, as was shown In 1920, whether men who work with their hands may organize for their own protection. It dtermines whether men shall be permitted to work at all. "The open shop drive from 1920 to 1922 was directed from Wail street. Its purpose was to crush the trade union movement and take from labor the small gains it had made during the war. In this conspiracy the finan cial oligarchy had at its command the injunction judges. It had at its serv ice the Department of Justice. It even made use of the Army of Amer ica, whose boys were enlisted —not to destroy, but to preserve the liberties of these United Slates. Pewcr of Bankers. “The international bankers have become the supreme power in this economic oligarchy. Two hundred and fifty thousand miles of railways, with approximately twenty billions of capitalization, have passed under the dominion of the banking syndi cates ot Wail street. The natural re sources of the Nation—coal, iron and oil—are subject to the same control. Great Insurance companies, which gather in the dollars of the people, have become the private property of these banking agencies. Trust after trust and monopoly after monopoly has fallen under their power. • • • “The Progressives aj-e fighting to restore Government to the broad basis of the popular wilL We are determined to break the power of private monopoly. We shall end its despotic control. Skoalri Preserve Freedom. "We Progressives believe that the power of the Government should be used to preserve freedom, not to crush it. We are opposed to the use of the injunction in labor dis putes. tVe denounce the perversion of the power of punishment for con tempt of court as a means of de priving men of their constitutional right to trial by jury. “When I am elected President of the United States there will be no Palmer or Daugherty injunctions. The Federal troops will be restricted to their legitimate functions and not be degraded to the position of strike breakers. "The organization of labor, like the organization of farmers and all other classes of citizens, for mutual benefit and legitimate purposes, will be en couraged as one of the rpeans of creating through the power of asso ciation agencies which can deal on something like equal ground with the enormous aggregations of capital.” Equality Before law. Declaring there had been a de struction of equality before the law,” Senator La Follette declared'legisla tion was needed “making it a crime for any individual, whether an of ficial or a private citizen, or for any organization to interfere with the exercise of the rights of fret speech, free press and freedom of assembly.” "I believe that all thorough Ameri cans will join with me in this de mand." he continued. "The preserva tion of these fundamental rights de pends upon the maintenance of genu ine representative government. The people themselves, through their elected representatives, must guard their liberties. No one else will protect them. . “Today we hear on every side that the courts are the defenders of the liberties of the peopl—that without thlr benign protection constitutional rights would cease to exist. No in telligent citizen believes this asser tion. I know that there are many Judges who have rendered signal services In asserting the sanctity of human rights. But I know also that in recent years our courts have more and more exalted the rights of prop erty above the rights of man. • • • “I offer this challenge to ail those who regard Judge* as the sole de fenders of our liberties: Show me one case in whioh the courts have protected human rights and I will show you 20 in which they have dis regarded human rights to protect property.” There were hisses and boos at the mention of “Mark Hanna,” “the De partment of Justice,” “the injunction judges" and "Wall street.” *■ Referring to prohibition for the lU»t xiaa pine* he set out ou jut WASHINGTON IN DIES UNDER AUTO Burned to Death When Car Overturns Near Savage: Two Injured.

Sticking consistently to his pre pared text, except for a few brief in terpellations, Mr. La Follette summed up the points made by him in previ ous campaign speeches this week. Time and again he was forced to sus pend until cheering died down. In an hour’s address he made no di rect reference to either of his oppo nents, or to Charles G. Dawes, the Republican vice presidential nominee, who lives in a suburb of Chicago. The audience cheered wildly for several minutes when Senator La Follette entered the armory. He was introduced by Jane Addams, chair man of the meeting. The candidate lost no time in plung ing into his prepared address. A declaration that "the common people are rising as in '6l for a new declaration of independence” brought on a prolonged wave of cheering, as did a statement that "corruption and greed have penetrated even to the doors of the White House." At the point the Senator departed from his manuscript to compliment the newspaper men who are accom panying him on his tour, declaring they were reporting his addresses with generosity and "exceeding fair ness.” Then he said: “At one time my name was not per mitted to appear in the public prints. That was not the fault of the re porter—the orders came from away back. But a new day has come. 1 speak for the millions who will cast their ballots in November." A wave of applause at this state ment grew into a storm of cheers, the crowd rising as it gave vent to its feelings.
