WANAMAKER GIVES HIS VIEWS He Favors High Tariff, Good Currency and Protection for Labor. OBJECTS TO BOSSISM IN POLITICS lias Xo (Jnnrril with Anyone and Will Not Become Sour if Defeated. Is Yielding to Kfiiuesls of Thous ands in Allowing His Name to Uo llclore (ho Legislature. Philadelphia, Dec. 2'J. John Wana niakcr will leave for HarrishiiiK with in the next few days to take personal command uf his followers at the state capital. In an Interview today Mr. na niaker discussed the questions lieuring on his senatorial tight. "The four years just clualnp." he said, "have been must disastrous to our country, und the recent presidential election almost precipitated a national crisis. If the next four years do not give good times to the I'nited State.--, the new century will usher In' changes that will be severely felt to the most remote corner uf the world. Pennsyl vania's responsibility in the adminis tration of national affairs Is thrown UMn her congressmen and two sena tors. The terms of these two senators expire either at the beginning of or during President McKinley's adminis tration, and as the time approaches to till the next vacancy some uf those who labored Incessantly to defeat the nomi nation uf President McKlnley und car ried tin- vote uf Pennsylvania In the convention against him are assuming to dispense the federal patronage In advance of his Inauguration In order to iiitluence the votes of the members of the legislature." "What about national Issues, Mr. Wanumaker?" "I favor a tariff lilsl(( enough to re munerate manufacturers, that they may be uble to keep their employes go ing the full week at Rood wages, and to exclude everything that we tun grow or make in this country. "Next in importance to the tariff law, I hold to be the Immigration law. I always stood for first taking cure of Americans with work. "Now there are people, people who never employ a dozen men in their lives, except possibly In political campaigns, trying to muke capital asalnst me as being opposed to the lu borer. Let them go among our employers and lind out. 1 am always and unequivocally against any Importation of foreign labor. CONCK UMNO Fl N A NCE. "As to finance, 1 am unalterably against any tampering w ith our money to destroy the nation's credit, and must be counted forever against any depre ciation of our coin." "What about state Issues?" Mr. Wanamnker w as asked. "In reply to your question, let me say llrst, 1 do not know w hat right any I'nited States senator has to go to Har rishurg and Interfere with state Issues to take care of this corporation and that, or settle other questions. What Is the use uf a governor or any mem bers of the legislature If the bills nre to be prepared by a state committee and marked O. K., by one senator. If you ask me as a citizen and tax payer what my opinions are on the state Is sues, I am free to say that I am In favor of all the reform legislation pro posed, and much more not yet pro posed; and with others 1 will agitate questions and inform the public and plead for the remedying of them. There Is no more important matter needing adjustment than the present finunclal system of the state. It Is a startling fact that from four to six millions of dollars uf balances are credited ns de posited in banks, yet the state does not pay up promptly Its school and other appropriations. It Is also an astonish ing fact that these millions known to be Ingenuiotisly assessable for election expenses pay no Interest to the state, while many of its sick, insane and poor ore suffering from slack accommoda tions. I believe that the auditor gen eral's depart merit likewise needs re urg'tnlzutiiig because of the large dis cretion of the auditor general In adjust ing corporation taxes. I have reason to believe tljut many sulferlng Indus tiles can be relieved after the investi gations that ure likely to be called fur soon. "1 would like to see our state taxes equalized and relief given the thinly populated districts, without depriving worthy children of an education. The burdens upon the land of the farmer, especially should be lessened. I favor ulso, bettering the roads by state aid, in some of the counties unable to Im prove their highways. "In the face of the popular uprising and revolt all over the state, the com monwealth is dishonored by the liuim that one man owns one hundred and llfty votes out of the two hundred and fifteen chosen men, composing the next legislature not yet assembled. HAS NO QCARREL. "I speak plainly on this subject be cause I have been assailed and mis represented for having had the alleged audacity to maintain that any citizen might aspire to a place supposed to be open to all who cared to contest for It. I have no quarrel with any one. and have not been a party to any attack made on any Individual. I have simp ly fallen In with my own inclinations for usefulness and bent to the wishes of thousands of people who have been writing to me, or seeing me. urging my consent to serve as senator. As one man declares it Is necessary to defeat me, I also declare that It is not at alt necessary to elect me. If another is preferred before me, I will neither be come sour, sullen nor savage only go on In whatever seems to be the next duty; and since I believe with many others the day has come to overthrow the present arogant and defiant polit ical thraldom, we shall not stop with one skirmish or half a battle. "The Business Men's league, un righteously assaulted, is composed of men from every avenue of life who work for a living. The organization has come to stay. Its members have pledged themselves to continue to serve In the effort to put the state, not under a new boss, but under the direc tion of Republican machinery composed of more than a single wheel. The as sociations have not been organised to elect one or two senators, but to take up the olllces of state treasurer, audi tor general, governor and others ns they come uround. as well as the next legislature. If some men have noth ing to do but return themselves to of llce, this association will take steos to see that 'heir records of service show worthiness of election or re-election. These are the coming practical living questions that will make a self-respecting Republican party again. And In such a warfare I am sure the people will triumph." STATE ORGANIZATION. It Will He formed by the Wnr Veterans Association. Philadelphia. Dec. 2!l. The first steps were' taken at a meeting held at the Grand Army headquurters toward the formation of a state organization of the war veterans' association. There were present ubout a score of repre sentatives from seven counties In the state, w ho derided to call a meeting for the permanent organization at Harris burg on January 2X. The War Vet erans' association differs from the i.i rand Army in having political ob jects, favoring the Republican party. At present the membership in Phila delphia Is 17.(100, Allegheny 1.IHI0. Read ing Lino. Chester ion. Hairisburg 2iki, Huntingdon county 200 and the Patri otic league of Lancaster 1100. At the meeting today resolutiosn were passed condemning the present federal administration of civil service rules as operating against the Interests of old soldiers. PRINCESS AND THE GYPSY The American Beauty and Hungarian Musician Create a Sensation at Buda Pest. Puda Pest, Dec. 29. .lunoa Rlgo, the Hungarian gypsy musician and the Princess He Curutnnn-Cliiiiiay, former ly Miss Clara, Ward, of Detroit, who recently eloped from Paris, have ar rived here from Stuhl Weissetiberg, wh.-re they had ' been visiting Rlgo's parents. Their presence In the city, where the story of the elopement has Idled much space in the newspapers, has awakened the liveliest curiosity, and people of all classes make ull sorts tf efforts to see the couple. When it became noised about that Rlgo and his American mistress were stopping at a hotel here hundreds of persons went to the hotel and stood outside for hours In the hope of seeing the pair. So large did the crowd become that trallic on the streets in the vicinity of the hotel was blocked and it became necessary to detail special police to handle the peo ple. The princess and her paramour have visited the theatres since their arrival and appear to enjoy the notoriety they have obtained through th dr liasou. Whenever they have appeared at places of amusement the . princess has been blazing In diamonds, and, as she is a remarkably beautiful woman, has ex cited much attention. The audiences, as soon as they discover who the couple are, neglect the stage and devote all their time to watching Rlgo and the princess, who evidently delight in the sensation they are creating. The con trast between the two Is great. Rlgo, who is about 35 years old, looks like the ordinary gypsy he Is. His com plexion is swarthy and his common an cestry Is plainly attested in his face. The respectable people of the city are thoroughly disgusted with the man ner In w hich the couile are acting and say that ordinary decency should impel them to keep themselves as much as possible from the public gaze, but tills view of the matter does not seem to meet with the approval of the parties most interested. Men of the world scoff at the Idea of Rio divorcing his wife and marrying the princess. They say that after he jets as much money as possible from her he will abandon her and return to his w ife. FRANK ARBL'CKLE'S DEATH. Coroner's Jury Decides That It Was Due to .Natural Cause. New York, Dec. 29. The coroner held an inquest today regarding the cause of death of Frank P. Arbuckle, the Denver politician, who died a few weeks ago in the West One Hundred and Fifty-second police station soon after being found unconscious at one Hundred and Fifty-second street and Fight h avenue. It was thought at first that he had met with foul play, as bis money, over coat and jewelry had been taken from him, but the autopsy showed that death was due to natural causes. The Jury returned a verdict that death was due to heart disease and other probable unknown causes. DOUBLE MURDER. William Whaley and His Wile Shot Down in Cold lilood. Knoxville, Tenn., Dee. 29.

Philadelphia, Dec. 29. A convention of the judges of state courts and the memliers of the district examining boards were held here today. The ob ject of the gathering, which was under the auspices of the Pennsylvania Hur association, wasvto.discuss the "advis ability of approximate uniformity of rules of court throughout the common wealth with a Mew to establishing such uniformity where it may be found wise and feasible to do s " Tlx it JI'DGK R. W. ARCHBALD. In Attendance at the Convention of the Judges or the State Courts at Phila delphia. manner of putting Into practical oper ation the uniform system of legal edu cation as endorsed by the Pennsyl vania Par association at Us last an nual meeting, was also a theme for dis cussion. The meeting ws called to order In Old Congress hall, at 10 a. m distinguished Jurists from all purls of the state be ing In attendance. Justice James T. Mitchell, of the Su preme court, and Judge S. WV penny,;, packer, of the common pleas court of this city, delivered 'addresses of wel come. Among the attendants were: 'WIIl lam H. M. Cram, chairman examining board, Shamokln; Judge Charles 11. Winner, Sunhury; William S. Hucken berg, board of examiners, Milton; Will lam W. Ryan. Shamokln; C. M. Clem ent, board of examiners, Sunhury; Judge John Stewart, Chambersburg; Judge John H.

Farquhar, Potts ville, examining board; R. II. Koch, Pottsville; (leorge J. Wodlinger. Potts ville, examining board, and Judge John J. Metzgar, WHIlamsport. Jl'DCE RICH AS PRESIDENT. Chief Justice Rice, of the superior court, was selected as president of the meeting. Judge Edward W. Riddle, of Carlisle, outlined the business on hand and explained that the particular mat ter to be considered "Is the possibility of formulating uniform rules of court." The jtidtfe stated that If the matters were favorably received by the conven tion Jie would suggest that they be re ferred to a 'committee to make n report to the Judges and the bar association at a later meeting. Judge Hechtel, of Schuylkill, thought It advisable to div ide the committee into two suli-conunit-tees that each should consider one sub ject, the rules of court or the require ments for admission to the bar. Final ly this resolution of.'ered by Judge Sav uge, of Warren county, was adopted: "That a committee of nine be ap pointed to consider the advisability of adopting uniform rules of practice for court." Judge Woodward, of Luzerne, offered a series of resolutions to take the mat ter of licensing liquor saloons out of the hands uf the judiciary and to ask the legislature fur some remedy for what the judire considered an evil. Judge Mcl'herson, of Harrishurg, moved to table them and this was done. The afternoon session was taken up with a lively discussion of the report of the State Par associntion,. of which J. A. Mcllvaln, of Washington, is chair man, and George Wharton Pepper,' of Philadelphia, secretary. The report presents a plan for uniform rules gov erning applicants for ami admission to membership of the bar. which if adopted would practically, It was claimed, require attendance at law schools. The committee reported that it was of the opinion that the candidate for registration should be thoroughly prepared In those subjects which are required for admission to the freshmen class of average colleges of reputable standing. STANDARD IS TOO HIGH. Judge Archbald, of Lackawanna, urged that the required standard was too high, and after some further ar gument, Edward J. Fox, of Kaston, one of the committee which framed the rules, moved that a resolution be adopt ed declaring It to be the sense of the convention that there should be a uni form system of rules. This started another discussion and finally Mr. Fox's resolution was adopt, ed, and Walter Oeorge Smith's resolu tion was then called up by Mr. Larza lere, of Norristown. Mr. Larzalere vigorously urged a high standard of education for applicants, and charged that. American lawyers are the laugh ing stock of other countries. At the conclusion of Mr. Larzalere's remarks Mr. Pepper, was called on to explain the proposed plans for carry ing into effect the rules, and explained that the rules had been prepared In or der to bring the matter practically be fore the Judges; that uniformity could be obtained by spontaneous action of the courts. Judge Sulzberger, of Philadelphia, finally secured a compromise by the following amendment to Mr. Smith's motion: Thnt It be recommended to the courts of the several districts that the rules for the education and admission of attorneys as presented bv the committee be sub mitted to the board of examiners In each county, wl'h the request that a wrb'.en report Ailh suggestions shall lie present ed thereo'i in tone to enable the secretary of the State Hur association to examine and digest suid reports for the next an nual meeting of ihe association, in order that the o 'iiilo-. of the bar of the state may be ascertained 1 l!or to any detlnUc action on .he subject ry the courts. The amendment was accepted by Mr. Smith and passed, and the convention adjourned to meet again at the same time und place of meeting of the State Par association next year. The visiting delegates were this even ing given a reception in Houston hall by Provost Harrison and the trustees of the Cnlversity of Pennsylvania, and the many distinguished Jurists, who at tended were received by the provost and by Joseph C. Rosengarten and Sam uel Dickson, of the board of trustees. After a pleasant evening had been spent In comparing notes of the day's proceedings a collation was served In the dining hull. HOME RULE FOR CUBA. The Reforms Will Be Instituted When the Province ol Pinar Del Rio Becomes Settled. Washington, Dec. 29. While It Is not true thut the Spanish government will accept the mediation of the United States in giving autonomy to the island of Cuba, It lias been known for some weeks that the Spanish ministry pur pose giving the Cubans a larger meas ure of home rule than they have hereto fore enjoyed. President Cleveland has been repeatedly assured that those re forms will be inaugurated when the province of Pinar Del Rio has been pacified. It was in this province that General Maeeo and his followers have been located for the past year, and liince Mateo's death the work of pacifi cation has been considerably expedited. The time Is now believed to be ripe when the home rule reforms will be instituted there, and also in the prov inces of Matanzas and Havana, where the Insurgents have never secured a foothold. It has been frequently asserted thnt the Intended reforms would have been put In operation long ago but for the In surrection and that some of the leaders among the Insurgents started the rebel lion In order to prevent the reforms. These reforms embrace the election of the entire Cuban congress, Instead of a mixed congress of fifteen elected mem bers and 15 appointed by the Queen Regent, und also a complete control by Cuba of her tariff. MINISTRY NOW AT WORK. The Spanish ministry are now un derstood to be engaged In drafting the proposed reforms, but thus far the only knowledge respecting them Is of a general nature. It Is believed that they will be completed within the next fort night ond It Is not unlikely that a copy will be cabled to Secretary Olney by the permission of the Spanish government befcre their public announcement. CASE OF HENRY DELGAD0. Secretary Olney Makes a Statement Regarding the Correspondent. Washington, Dec. 29. Secretary Ol ney today made the following state ment In regard to the case of Henry Delgado, the Cuban correspondent of a New York newspaper, who wns cap tured by the Spaniards in the Privlnco of Pinar Del Rio on December IS: "It appears, from a report from the Havana consulate that Mr. Delgado was made a prisoner by the Spunlsh troops In course of recent military op erations in the Province of Pinar Del Rio; that he is reported to have be longed to the staff of the insurgent Major General Maeeo and to have been in command of the artillery and thut a letter to Maceo and one from Maceo to the prefect of Las Tumbas was found on his person. It being repre sented to the consulate that Delgado is a native born American citizen. All the rights to which he Is entitled under our treaty with Spain and subsequent protocol have been claimed for him." Mr. Delgado Is confined in the mili tary hospital of Sun Ambroslo outside of Havana. The rights spoken of in the statement consist of a trial by the ordinary judicial authorities, unless the prisoner "is taken with arms." Then he must be tried by a council of war or court martial.
