From Governor Folk's Speech at I'hiladclihla. Philadelphia, Pa., Oct. 16. The great battle between the republican organization and the city party, the municipal reform organization re cently formed here, was enlivened to day by the visit of Governor Folk, of Missouri, who came to lend his voice in the interest of good government. He spoke under the auspices of the City club, which claims no connection wtth the City party. Governor Folk had an exceedingly busy day, and his reception wherever ne appeared dur ing the day and evening was a flutter ing one. The crowd that attempted to gain entrance to the Academy of Music to night was so great that the door were closed before the meeting began Several thousand persons who could not get In, were addressed by City par ty speakers. While the curb stone mass meotlng was In progress. Gov ernor Folk arrived, and the assem blage could not permit him to enter the building until he had addressed them. He ' made a short speech. When he entered the academy "the au dience stood up to welcome him. With him on the stage were Governor Burham, Jr., president of the City club: former Postmaster General Charles Emory Smith, former United States Attorney General Wayne Mc- Veagh. William Power, and aDoui a hundred other citizens of prominence. Mayor Weaver occupied a proscenium box and waa given a warm welcome when he appeared. President Burnnam in explaining the objects of the club, said the or ganization was allied to no party, that It neither endorsed nor named candi dates, but stood ready to help any genuine movement for' good govern ment. He presented wayne mc Veaah. who made a brief speech, In troducing Governor Folk. Governor Folk said In pari: "The most conspicuous fact of mu nicipal governments In the Unltea States today Is that they are govern ments by' the few. and not by the peo ple. There Is more aggressive rotten ni and Itss aearessive patriotism in our large cities than anywhere else. If the natr otlsm can be maae as ag gressive as the rottenness, the problem of good government would be solved by the people taking tne government Into their own hands. If corruption exlfts In Philadelphia, the people are to blame: if corruption Is to be eraai- cated the people alone can do it. The fight you are making is a batue wnicn will be felt by every town, city ond state. The benefit of a victory ior good government will be universal and the evil effects of a defeat will demor alize those who believe In good gov ernment by the people. The average man does not appreciate the solemn duty he owes his city, state and his country; "The moral revolution now sweep ing over the land means the patriot Ism that comes from the heart, not from he head. Many men would be willing. If ' need be, to give up their lives for their city or state If they are needed, sometimes, and this kind of patrltm cannot be too highly com' CITIES THAN ANYWHERE EI .HE. mended, but the man who Is willing to live for his city and state every day Is the man that is needed just now. There may be as much patriotism in giving one's time to the betterment of civic conditions and the election of good men to offices and purifying the ballot, as in baring one's breast to the bullets of an enemy. There never was a time when the need for patriotic men in public affairs was greater than now. . We need more men actuated alone by the public good and fewer of those who are In politics merely for revenue." Cyril Suffer for Ills Mnrrlnge.

SEAMEN TELL A ' HARROWING TALE OF SHIPWRECK Six of Eight Castaways Died of Thirst. TWO SURVIVORS REACH PORT ArTER HEART BREAKINÓSTItlP Boston. Mums.. Oct. 18. A story of a .orti .tiaiillc shipwreck In which eight Hciiiiicii suffered so fearfully from evMsine, hunger and thirst that six of them either dlexl outright, were washed away or, mixed by tlielr fearful cxHTlcnee, threw themselves Into the sen. whs told Unlay by the two survivors of the coasting schoon er Vim Name and King of New Hav en, which wns beaten to pieces by n gale off the South Carolina coast on October 0. The two men who lived through tht five days and were rescued by the schooner Stillman of the Kelly, which arrived here late today, are William Thomas und William G. Warner, both about 39 years old, six feet three Inches tall and hall from ' Antigua, British West Indies. The six, who one by one succumbed, were: Captain William A. ' Maxwell, of New Jersey; Mate, K. A. Chase, home unknown; colored seamen, Wllilim Orlswell Hnd Alfred Arthur, both ol America. The Van Name and King which has been plying up and down the coast since 1 KK6, left Charleston, S. C, 'or New York on October 4 with a carsro of hard pine. Two days later she ran Into a heavy galo and after wallowing about in the great seaa for several hoors sprang a leak. The pumps wire started, but within a short time the engine room waa flooded and the pumps choked. , At 8 o'clock on the morning of Oc tober n, wltn her hold full of water. the little-schooner whs hove down on her beam ends. , The crew clambered up on he weathef side and lashed themselves to the bulwarks. There they remain ed, washed by the was that broke mercilessly over them, all day Friday. That night the storm Increased in rury and one (great wave crashed aboard, breaking' both legs Of Snu man Arthur and sweeping Grlswell from his fastenings. Arthur's cam panlnos could no nothing to ease hi sufferings, but when on Saturday the scnuoner turned completely over they managed to cut his lashings ind drag hlrn on a place of the after house. It was several hours befare they were ail huddled together on their little raft. That night Arthur died In the arms of Captain Maxwell, and "his body was dropped overboard. Sunday brought a ray of hope when a craft was alghted, but the gloom shut in again as she passed by with out heeding the little group of sea men who frantically signalled her. That night the waves subsided and a lltlie rain fell which was eagerly caught in. a tarpaulin und brought foine relief. It was only temporary and not long after Mate Chase's mind gave way entirely and the craft wa again lightened when he Jumped In to '.he sea. The next victim was Captain Max well, who on Monday forenoon be came violently Insano and followed his mate's example of self-destruction ns h relief to his sufferings. The spectacle of two men throwing themselves Into the sea proved too much for the German engineer and a few hours after Captain Maxwell' death he too leaped to his death. The last victim, was the head atew nrd who died Monday and whose body wua consigned to the waters by the two remaining seamen. Relief came twelve hours later wi.nr, the schooner Stillman of the Kelly, bound up coast from Ceylon lia., in this port, sighted the little craft and hove to alongside. ARGUMENT ON DEMURRER TO SENSATIONAL INDICTMENT Counsel for Defense Seeks to Show Postoffice Department Without Authority to Make Investigation. St. Louis, Oct. 16. The hearing of arguments by Judge Van Deventer In the L'nlted States circuit court on the demurrer of United States Senator Burton, of Kansas, to the indictment charging him with having used his Influence In behalf of the Kialto Grain and Securities company, of St. Louis, before the postofllce department, was begun today. Mr. Burton was re manded last spring after his case had been sent back by the supreme court. md the Indictment charges him with knowingly receiving a compensation while a United States senator for ser vices rendered In a case then pending in which the government waa inter ested. Attorney Haynes, of Chicago, coun sel for Burton, declared today that the Indictment fails to charge that Burton knew of the case then pending against the Rlalto Grain company. Hi contended that the word "knowingly" in the Indictment only extends to the question of his having accepted a com pensation, and that it cannot be ex tended o an allegation that Burton knew of the case pending. Attorney Haynes argued further that while the Indictment charges that Senator Burton agreed to receive com pensation for his services, It does not et out wMh whom he agreed. The In- lictment, he argued, does not specif.v is to the services rendered or wlien the services were to be rendered. it Is alleged by the Indictment. Haynes stated, that the question being Investigated by the postofllce depart ment was whether the Hialto Grain company had violated section 6180 ol the criminal statutes. The only power that makes such an Investigation pos sible, he argued. Is a court, and If the postoffice department vas makine such an Investigation It was without right. Senator Burton was In court and sat quietly beside his counsel. IRVING TOlÍÉWITH ENGLAND'S MOUS DE ID GltllAT AtTOIl'S Itl.M IS TO BF PUUKD IN WF.STMJN1STKH ABBF.Y. London. Oct. 16.
