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
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

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-

fight you are making is a batue wnicn

There may be as much patriotism in

that while the Indictment charges that

Gotha, Du.'hy of Saxe-Coburg and
Gotha, Oct. 16. The suit brought by
Prince Philip of Suxe-Coburg and
Gotha for an absolute divorce from
his wife, Princess Louise and for an
adjustment of their Joint property In
terests, began here today before the
ordinary court for the trial of divorce
cases ,the prince having waived his
technical right to have the case tried
by a special court as provided for un '
der tho laws of his family.
Both principals were absent, but
the Austrian officer, Lieutenant Keg
levitch Mattnslch, with whom the
princess eloped, was present. The
court asked of the prince's attorneys
If they wished to make any motions.
They replied that the prince had .o
objection to the proceedings being
DUblic. The attorneys for tno prin
cess also declined to require privacy.
Sn-k Amicable Separation.
The president then began the pro
ceedings by proposing to the lawyer
that the two parties seek to bring
about a reconciliation, explaining that
this wad not meant to get the prin
cess or prince to live together again,
but to agree to an amicable separa
tion and satisfactory agreement re
garding the property. The lawyera
agreed to take the matter under con
sideration nml asked for an Intermis
sion for that purpose.
The prince's lawyers said l'i
prince asked for an absolute divoi
In order to secure a complete separ

During the recess the lawyera
agreed to an arrangement on the fol
The prince to guarantee the pay
ment to the princess of a yearly al

her a lump sum of 130,000, provided
she abandon all of her rlalm against
the irlneu and that titer the di
vorce she adopt the name and title of
Louise, Princes of Belgium.
After these terms were laid before
the court, a recess was taken In or
der that tho princess might be tele
graphed for her consent to the agree
ment. Inter In the day the lawyers for the
princess attacked tho competence of
the court to decide the case at all.
The court then adjourned until Oc
