DeARMOND REPLIES TO PRESIDENT'S TRUST SPEECH. Opens His Campaign in the Sixth District With a Striking Ad dress to Democrats at Clinton. REPUBLICANISM ANALYZED. Attitude of the Administration on Two Great Issues of the Day Defined and Inconsisten cies Tointefl Out. REPUBLIC SPECIAI- Clinton. Ho., Aug. 30 Congressman D A. De Armond opened his campaign for re election in the Sixth District here to-night. He arrived from Butler on the afternoon train and was greeted by a large crowd of his admirers at the station. During the hours Intervening1 before time for the public i meeting. Judge De Armond met hundreds of his old friends, not a few of whom ex pressed their keen regret thnt he would net make the race for the United States S;nate. To-night Mr. De Armond delivered a speech replying to President Roosevelt's anti-trust enunciations and defining the hy pocrisy of the party of the administration on the two leading issues of the day trusts and reciprocity. Tell of Republican Scrambling. The Congressman had been charged by resolutions adopted by Republican counts convention to-day with opposing rural free delivery and In the course of his speech to night he defended his course in a mavier that shamed his defamers. He declared that he had favored rural free delivery, but when citizens of Clinton complained that in defiance of policy an nouncved by the Department only Republi cans were being appointed carriers, he had addressed three letters of Inquiry to De partment, receiving no reply until he was In the Philippines, when he itas informed that apoplntments were held up pending Investigation. A Department official afterward told him that here was such a pressure brough by wruiit,-iing tepuoucan iactions in -Missouri that the Department did not know what to do. The Congressman declared he had firmly opposed the abolition of small postofflces on rural free delivery routes, ex cept by consent of their patrons. A great crowd listened to the address, jjunctuating it at frequent Intervals with expressions of approval. Mr. Do Armond epoke as follows: The President has been saying a good deal upon the subject of the trusts. He appears to entertain the opinion that the trusts may become bad. and, indeed, that some of them already are bad. and that It probably 111 be, or perhaps Is now, necessary or at least adtlsable to try to do something with them or to them. 'El dently, he dees not know what to do or to recom mend to others to do. lie has gone no farther than to suggest that "publlcltj" would prove very efflclcacious, and that It might be .well enough to amend the Federal Constitution so as to glre the general government full control over all corporations. In the hope Uiat, haling if - ... j, .. . ... J ,ttws- wholesom-ly and efficiently administered 1 bv the.iKedcriil Authorities, would l.n if nnt plenary power, wnoiesome ana efficient Federal cure the trust evil. Publicity, as a euro for trust afflictions. Is an old remedy tn theory, having 7eea suggested many times before the President 'added his cer tificate. That publicity would b good no ono doubts; that It would co far enough or ac complish enough, surely no one ought to be lieve. That It would be aluable. at tlmea, to stock gambler? Is eWdent. Butt the, maEes,of the people do not oeal Tn stunt, and puolicUy would not be'ao cirectiy? beneficial to them And then wht an. army ,gf investigators would be required to make public what the trun mag nates would wish to keep secret! And what temptations they would have to meet and resist! And what would happen when the trust man agers, either by misleading or corrupting gov ernment investigators would make imjduc. Dy au thority of the Government, and as its act. t.ie facts cf fabrications vbteh It would be to their Interest to hae given publicity? U'llllns to Try Prescription. With the hope that publicity would clvo the Government greater control over the trusts would tnerc not be ground for some apprehension that the trusts would so Influence tne operation of the machinery as to increase their control over the Government? Whatever of good there may be In publicity, let us not bo'deiuded into the belief or the hope that It will prove the remedy for the trust 'His from which va suffer. At the same time let us try the publicity pre scrlpt.on. What Is the reason the ITesIdent's party doer not give It to us? 'the Democrats favor it. and long have favored It. Amending tbe Constitution, so as to take from the states what control they now have over cor porattonp.' and to center all pon er ov er them In the Federal Government that Is what the Pres ident Is now urging as the best tmng tnat has jet occurred to him In the way of treatment for the trust affliction. lie must know that It is practically Impossible to amend the Constitution In any Important, particular. Two-thirds of botS houses ot Congress, of tbe Legislatures of two thirds of the States applying therefor, are nec essary to get an amendment to the Constitution submitted; and then three-fcurths of the Mates mut act favorably upon the proposed amend- ment to secure Its adoption. In other words, any t fraction or either house or Congress In excess of one third, or twelve out of fort -Ave States, can defeat any constitutional amendment. Fowerrul as the trusts are, and fast as they are Increasing in power, do jcu think they would be ldlo or. indifferent If an amendment really ob jectionable to them were pressed? "Why Deprive States of Power! And then why should the States be robbed ot all power over corporations, as the President proposes? Are you ready for that remedy hero la Missouri? Do you not know that Missouri has i done more to protect her seople from the out rage j of the trusts than th Federal Govern ment has done or Is doing? When the constitutional amendment of which the Pr"ldent " n'w' trenueu advocate, was before the last Congress, just before the election of iX, the Democrats urged that instead of taking from the States all power over corpora tions and trusts and depending solely upon the Federal Government for protection agalnit the trusts full power td Investigate, regulate, re strain and, if need be destroy, the trusts, be lodged In the general Government and In each and every State, the one first moving in any par tlcu'ar case to have complete Jurisdiction in that case. This real remedy was rejected by the Repub licans, and evidently they are opposed to It )et. They wish to do something with the trust sub JecU. but they are not willing to do anv thing to which tbe trusts are much opposed. A mot Interesting and Instructive chapter In the nlstorv of our times and rjolltlcs Is thtt which tells about the Cuban reclprocly bill. The I President urged upon Congress the duty and ! the wisdom of passing a law to provide for reciprocal trade relations -with Cuba, whereby a portion of the existing tariff duties Imposed by our present law the Dlngley bill would be removed from articles Imported from Cuba. anI a correspondlntr reduction In the Cuban tariff schedule would be made la favor of American Im ports to Cuba. Protectionists' Alarm. The duty, the President arrued. frrew out of our peculiar relations to Cuba having hampered her In her Intercourse with other Governments, and practically confined her to the United States for a market for her products, we should lower our tariff upon those preducts so that she might live. As for the policy Involved, the President set forth that, by obtaining from Cuba a conces sion by which American products could enter tbe Cuban market upon tbe payment of a lower tariff' rate than that exacted of the people of any other nation, we would supply the Cubans with about everything they would ret from abroad, to the great business advantage ot our peonle. I believe the President was right upon both points. The majority of the Republicans ln the ireuse of Representatives favored a bill providing for a temporary reduction of i pr cent in our tariff duties, upon articles-Imported from Cuba, conditioned upon the like reduction In the Cuban tariff In ova- favor. But a Strang Republican minority vigorously opposed the bill, some of them uppn the ground that the proposed redac tion would Injuriously affect the beet sugar in dustry in this country, and others, upon the theory that It would be dangerous to "protec tion" to Interfere with the tariff; that once the least breach is made in the tariff wall, more and greater breaches may be expected. Prevent Tariff Reduction. I might remark here that everr man of rotr intelligence, -whose attention has been directed to the matter, knows that upon many articles the tariff duties now levied; axa excessive. He knows, Miji a. 'i.0,1 cui & vU Il-Sgr?.:. T -y--- '..ffK''- SBBBBBBBlnrT-"? DAVID A. DE ARMOND. too. that in many instances article? of prim? necessity are kept. high In price here at home, sclelj- by means of the Dlngley tariff Ian, r.hlle the same things are sold abroad much cheaper than here, where they are manufactured. j He knows, too. that the Democrats have at tempted time and time again to have the djtr ' lowered upon, or taken oft. of. trust-mad" ar ticles, -when (oM abroad at a lower price than that exacted of the American consumer A notable Instance of this occurred when Mr. ' Iocken, the preeni Governor of our State. , then a member of Centre, urged such an ' amenirrent to the Dlnstlev bill when it was tin- i dcr consideration In th- House. every Democrat voting with him to j.nvlde for taking eff the tariff whenever It affotdrd shelter to the uuts, while robbing the American conumer. Hut tie Republicans were in the majority, and tni de feated the righteous amendment, flatly refusing to legislate asalnt the trusts, for the.r lou-itry- men Why the- Hill Wm Pigeonholed. This Cuban reclproclti bill passed the Houe the ISth cf April. But bj the solid Democratic vote and the otes of a few Republicans, and gainst the votes of the great majcrltv of the jifjiuoMcan-r, ine uui was amenaea in an im portant partlcu'ar. It then went to the Senate, and there It is. In a plceonhole. i Wh did not the fcenaie tass the bill? Whv : ma nor. me -ri'rTe nvieat the iiin? it w nnr did not the Pen-rte defeat the bill? It was not pass-etl because the Supar Trust opposed Its jassnfie. It was not killed in the open because the election wa approaching, and It would not be politic to show opposition too clearly The Itepubllcans pigeonholed the bill, while the Dem ocrats were, and are, for Its passage. We may easily understand why the Republican advocates of Cuban reciprocity, from the Presi dent down, were unwilling to suffer the amended bill to become a law, though as amended it Is a much better bill, both for the Cubans and for the mass of the American peopl, than It was origi nally Let us look Into the sugar schedule of the Dlngley law for the explanation. Under the Dlngley law the tariff upon dark colored sugar ranges from S3 cents per 1OT pounds of sugar T3 per cent pure, to Jl.SI.'i per 100 pounds on sugar of ICO per cent purity, the rate rising 3H cents per 1M pounds for each additional degree In purity. Degrees of "pur it" are merely percentages of saccharine mat ter, sugar 73 per cent pure containing 73 per cent saccharine matter, sugar 190 per cent pure containing 100 per cent of saccharine matter. AVlie?re the Snirnr Trniit Conies In. The Dlrgley tariff rate upon the light-colored rugars Is J1.93 per 100 pounds, without reference to the purity of the article. This addltlonnl liu cents betneen the highest rate for daJk- co:orea sugar ana the uniform rate upon the light-colored sugars Is called the "difrereitlal" duty, andis for the benefit of the Sugar Tn;st, and for nothing elre. As "a mattT of" fact, no sugar Is absolutely pure, and so none grades 100 per cent In purity. or In the saccharine matter contained, and non of the dark-colored sugariarc taxed as much as ji.r-:', upon iuj pounds. Kinet-slx or ninetl .fe''n """ cent ,s about as high as most of the per cent dark-colored sugar Is Jl.M'i for 1"0 poundr. and the duty upon the 87 pr cent grade Is Jl.Ti So, it will be seen, the "differential duty for the Sugar Trust is JH cents per 1C0 pounds upon SS-per-cent sugar and 2J cents upon the $7-per-cent grade. By the clasrlflcatlbn of the Dlngley law the extra differential. Sugar-Trt'st, duty Is placed upon all refine.1 sugar, and all sugar "aboe ?"o IS Dutch standard !n color" Now, all light yellowish fmgar Is above "No II! Dutch-standard In color." Thl sugar is of a quality to go Into general uso without being further refned, to as to become what Is tech nically called "refined" rugar. But under the existing law t .Is subject to the extra differen tial or sugar-trust duty, and In consequence none Is Imported except through the Sugar Trust. Why the Amendment XVnn Opposed. Now for the amendment to the Cuban reciproci ty bill, on account of which the Pre3ldent and hrs friends lest their affection for It. This amend ment takes en the Sugar Trust differential duty upon both reSned sugar and "sugar aboe No. 15 Dutch standard In colcr." subjecting such sugars, no matter where they come from, to the highest duty upon the dark-colored sugars. The Cubans do not produce "reflnel" sugar, but they do produce. In great abundance and of excellent qualltj. llght-cclored, wholesome, pilata ble sugar "aboTe No. 10 Dutch standard In col cr" But for tho differential duty upon this grade of sugar a duty created and maintained for the beneflt of the Sugar Trust this light colored, high-grade Cuban sugar would come into our markets without passing through the hand. f the Sugar Trust, to the mutual advantage of the Cuban producer and the American consumer. AVhat do you think of the sincerltv of ihn. who prate about their great desire for reciprocity with Cuba while they oppose or do not lift a finger to help to pass a bill which has been amended so as to be worth more, by reason of the amendment, both to Cuban and American, and objectionable to these friends of Cuban reel' proclty only because It Is oujectlcnab e to the Sugar Trust? As for those who oppo this bill because they oppose all reduction in th tariff, thev at least fae '" merit ox candor, nut when a tariff duty Is so high that It enables a trust to exact from the American consumer more than It demanJ of the foreigner, to whom It ships Its wares beyend the 6eas. whst excuse can there be for refusing or neglecting to remove or at "least reduce that tariff duty? And yet. In numerous Instances, anl for vears, the llepubllega party has been, and It Is now, guilty ot such retinal and such neglect. What have the trusts to fear from a party dom inated and leJ as ths Republican party Is? Talk Is very cheap, especially when contradicted by acts. Is the President Sincere! As for tho plea of the "beet sugar Industry" that any .reduction of the tariff would be dead ly. It Is well to keep In mind the fact that in addition to the tariff duties upon sugar already mentloneJ. thre Is another, denomlratfd the "countervailing" duty, providing that upon all sugars Imported from countries pajing a bounty there shall be added to our regular tariff duty upon such sugar a sum ejual to the amount of such bounty And It Is well enough to note also the fact that our present tariff duty upon all Imported sugars amounis to -more man tneir value; that Is. more than doubles their cott In this country. With the JO ner cent reduction of the Cuban reciprocity bill, the remaining duty would be almost If not quite equal to tbe original value of the sugar imported. It the President really wishes to try what can be done to curb the trusts, let him have those who violate the existing anti-trust law prose cuted for the crimes committed. Don't you wonder why none of tbe Beef Trust offenders ar prosecuted as criminals; Not a solitary prosecution I 'Why? And if the President and his party friends are now reallv eajrer to do something arainst' the trusts, after refusing so often and so long, why will they not deny the trusts the use of the malls In proecutlnr their careers, of oppression? Why will they not conascate trust coeds In inter state rommerce. when the violation of the law permits and demands It? Whv? The D-mocrau have urged these and ether simple but efficient remedies, but the Republicans would bare none cf them. I The Republican party is too thoroughly de pendent upon the trusts to Incur the ill will ot their managers, at least so long as tbe people may be soothed with words, mere words.

In going through the routine of his duties on various portions of the great tow er. Barry had risked his life in perilous places. Barry is the man who last Febru ary, accompanied by a photographer, climbed to the top of tbe William Penn statue and was photographed ln midair, winging by a rope from the hat's brim. Barry was a man of steady courage and steel nerves. The fall that caused his death was not due to loss ot courage or loss of nerve.

When tho heavy p!ate of glass ln the dial became loosened from their sockets, though this was not often, he would descend on a line rrom above and hang like a human spider across the timepiece's giant face. But Barrj's thrilling feat one which made the blood freeze in the veins of the person witnessing It was his circuit of the upper dome. ar the top of the tower about MO feet from the ground are eight circular windows. They measure fully A feet in diameter, but from the street they look scarcely a foot wide. Under these windows, running around the outside of the tower at this point, is a ledge, curving abruptly downward at its edges and affording a rooting of barely inche. This perilous pathway is Interrupted at eight different points by the ribs of metal which give to the dome Its octagonal shape. "Walked on Aarruvr Strip. Barry. laughing at the idea of danger, made the circuit of this treacherous path way for the benefit of a newspaper man, walking foot over foot and clinging to the sides of the structure with the flat palms of his hands. The strip he trod on was so narrow that no ordinary man would have attempted, It at a greater height than six or seven feet from the ground. Barry made light of It at 5M. with the depth of the Clty Ilall courtyard vawiflne: below- him lifcn a. chasm. And yet the man who could achieve feats of this kind without a tremor, was the vic tim of a comparatively Insignificant fall. For two weeks Barry had been superin tending the painting of the structural steel work, which braces the toner's interior. From the very top the work had progressed downward to the cantilever floor, a distance of SZ feet above the clock floor. The can tilever floor consists nf stwl he.ima. nn flooring being put down at this point. Bar ry was worKing a few reet above this floor. He stood on a plank supported near the ends by two projecting pieces of wood, known to mechanics as "three by four wood." Tho cnd( of these two sticks were wedged In between the metal work, and th 12-inch-wide plank on which Barry stood lay across their projecting ends. Whether the plank slipped frtm these boards, or wneiner narry, forgetting himself mo mentarily, stepped to the end ot the plank and tipped it up will never be known. For sythe. one of the three other men with him heard a slight rumble and looked around Just in time to fee Barry and the plank precipitated Into the black depths below. "My God!" rried Forsythe. clinging to n support with a grip of Iron a he leaned far out to watch the fated man in his descent. "My God. h- Is gone!" Ills Fntnl Foil. All three men saw him strike the floor below the clocks. Barry fell H feet and hit a steel beam, crushing all the ribs of one side rnd turning over like a pinwheel ln his downward flight. Two-thirds of the way down he came In contact with a narrow, circular bar. which snanoed hli 1p-i and again sent him spinning around and around. A second later he reached the floor, a bruised and bleeding mass. Only the week previous Barry had bought a Panama hat at a bargain figure. He continued to wear the straw hat purchased earlier in the seaon. telling his friends that he would "save the Panama until next sum mer." But of the many pathetic ncidents which surrounded his sudden death, the contemplated purchase of a home from the money ne nau Deen saving all his life Is the saddest.

MINT'S PENNY-MAKING MACHINES ABE BUSY One-Cent Pieces, Xow in General Demand, "Were Bare Ten Years Ago. The United States Treasury during th fiscal year which ha3 Just ended manufac tured 79.611.14S cents and 26.4S0.33 nickels. Massachusetts took 6,000,000 cents, Pean sylvania 4.000,000, Illinois 7,000,000 and Nt$ York nearly 10,030,000. These are the greaS cent-using States, and stand. In t the sana order as to consumption of nickels. Ten years) ago pennies were little used, Arizona. The cent-making machines in the mint at Philadelphia are constantly turning; ou pennies all the year round up to dato Uncle Sam has turned out 1.10J.O:0,OCO cents, 3W.OW.000 nickels, 100, OOO.OOy dimes. 2.0CO,C00 quarters and 150.

What has become of them is a mystery, for, barring a few in tha hands of collectors, they have disappeared, no one knows where. t Many jeant ago the Government issued! $1,500,000 bronze z-cent pieces, and of these over 3.WJ.00O are still outstanding. The same Is trua of the nickel 2-cent pieces, of which nearly r,000,OCO are unac counted for. Slot machines have greatly Increased the demand for coppers, and so also have the penny newspapers and the odd prices made popular ln dry goods shops. Cents and nickels wear out pretty rap Idly, because they are passing constantly from hand to band, and the Immense, num bers of them that pour Into tho Treasury at Washington are carefully sorted over for the purpose of sorting out those which are .. ....I. .!.... .....1 .a Kn fl. fn. e..r.V.A ..- ItMJ UiU1.ll UdlUJU 11 UU .lb 1 IU1UIU U3C. The "life" of a cent Is only four or flvo years, because it changes hands ten times for once that a half dollar la moved from one person's pocket to another's. All worn-out piece3 are melted for recoin age, and on every 1.000 thus remitted the Government lo-es nearly CO. Cents are subject to more accidents than any other coins Being of such small value, very little care is taken of them, and that Is whv the Treasury has to co on turnlnc out new ones fct the rate of 60,000,000 to X.- ' OuO.OOO per annum. At the Treasury they say that the cent Is a barometer of business conditions. A heavy storm or a sudden coming of cokt weather anv thing, in short, that keepa the penny-spending part of the population at home Is accurately reflected ln tho falling off of the cents coming to the sub treasuries for exchange. During periods ot dullness cents accumulate at subtreasuries, but when trade revives they begin to circu late rapidly again. Anybody who wants cents may get them by sending a check to the superintendent of the mint, who will ship them, at the ex pense of the Government. Not a day passes that a good many coun terfeit cents and nickels do not turn up nt the Treasury, most of them coming from New York and Philadelphia, where the bus iness of making such small coins occupies the attention of many Italians and Polish Jews. The profits of the industry are small, but the pieces, being of such small value, ar easy to pass. eventually tne counterfeits go to the bu reau of the secret service, under the direc tion of wmcn thy are melted in a furnace, to be sold finally as old metal. r The pieces that are too much worn to be of further U'e are thrown Into a receptacle, and every few weeks a large consignment of them la sent to Philadelphia, where they are meltd for recolnage. Quite frequently foreign coppers turn up, and they likewise go to the melting pot.
