Eight Peraona Drowned.
The Delaware river steamer Columbia,
on its way from Philadelpbia to Bristol,
Pa., last night, crashed into a steam
lannch about ten miles north of Phila?
delpbia, giinding it to pieees and caus?
ing the drowning of eight of the dozen
occupants of the amall boat. All of the
party were Philadelphians. The acci
dent was the tragic ending of a day's
pleasure trip on the river. The launch
was owned by Joaeph Fortescue, and the
party had been made up from among a
fewofhis friends. The day was spent
in a cruise up the river asfaraaTren
ton. The return trip was begun after
nightfall, the pilot of the boat keeping
close to the Pennsylvania shore on the
run down the river. When a point was
reached near Andulsia, the Columbia
?uddenly loomed up ic the darkness.
Fortescue jammed his wheel to star
board, but just a raoment too late. The
big steamer struck the launch squarely
in the middle and cut it in half, throw
ing all the occupants into the water.
A terrible shriek went up as tbe
boat* struck, which almoet cauaed a
panic among the passengers on board
the Columbia. Dozensof lile-preaervers
were thrown overboard to thoee in the
water and a boat was lowered. Not
withstanding the fact that Capt. Camp
bell, of the Columbia, iuetantly reversed
his eugine, the Columbia was some dis
tance from the struggling people in the
water when she came to a full stop.
When the rowboat reached the spot only
four persons could be found in the dark?
ness. It ia believed that several of the
victims were crushed by the paddle
wbeela of the Columbia. The survivora
of the launch claim the launch waa burn?
ing the neceasary river ligbts, as doea
also Capt. Campbell. The latter de
clared last night that the accident was
unavoidable
LETTER OF ACOEPTANOE.
The bong-looked-for letter of accep
tance from Mr. Roosevelt haa at last
appeared, and it may be tru)y aaid that
the r.iountain has labored and brought
for -a mouse. It conaista chiefly of aa
suinptions and attempted depreciation of
democratic principles. It is elongated,
uvuking 62 pagea in 'pamphlet lorni.
Oomparatively few will have either the
time or patience to peruse it in its en
fcrety. The lolicwing ia subatan'ially
hat the writer deairea the people of the
United Statea to swallow :
No other adminiatration (then thepres
ent one) in our hiatory, no other govern
mant in the world, haa moreconsistently
atood for the broadest spirit of brother
hood in our common humanity, or haa
held *a more resolute attitude of pro
test against every wrong that outraged
the civilization of the age, at home or
abroad.
Pension Order No. 78 (directing that
any veteran of the civil war who has
reached the age of 62 years ahould be
presumptively entitled to a peusion of
$6 a month) is justified, not merely on
legal grounds, but also on grounds of
public morality.
The record of the last seven years
proves that the party now iu powercan
be trusted to take the additional action
ueceasary to improve and strengthen
our monetory system and that our op
ponenta caunot be ?o trusted.
The action of the Attorney-Oeneral in
enforcing the anti-trust and iuterstate
commerce laws, and the action of the last
Oongreas have for the first time opened
acbance for the national government to
deal intelligently and adequately with
thequeslions affecting society because of
the accumulatiou ol capital in great cor
porations.
When they (the democrats) speak of
protection aa robbery, they of course
niust inean that it ia immoral to enact a
taritl deiigned to secure to the American
wageworker the beoefit ofthe highstand
ard of living which we desiie to see kept
up in this country. To speak ot the
tariff in this senae aa robbery is on its
t'ace falae.
From time to time schedulew must un
doubtedly be rearranged and readjusted
to meet the shiftingneeds of the country.
but this can with safety be done only by
those who are conimitted to the cause ol
the protective system.
At no time in the hislory of thi- or
any country has there been anera aopro
du'ctive of material benefitalike to work
ingmenand employcras during the seven
year- that have just passed.
Tbe army as it is now is as small as it
can possibly be and serve its purpose as
an effective nucleus.
The expenditures of the nation have
been managed in a spirit of economy, as
far removed from waste as from niggard
liness.
The pnblic work of the UniteJ States
has never been conducted with a highcr
degrce of honesty and efficiency than at
the present time. Wc have known no
party in dealing with offenders.
Any abindonment ol the policy which
we have ateadily pursued in the Philip
piae islands would be fraugbt with dis
honor and disaster.
Our government has been true to the
spirit ofthe fourteenth atnendment in
the Philippinea.
There is not a policy, foreign or do
mestic, which we are now carrying out,
which it would not be disawtrous to re
verse orabandoii.
We hold ever before us as the all-im
portant end of policy and administration
the reign of peace at home and through
out the world.
The purchasing power olthe average
wage received by the wageworker has
grown faster thau the cost of living, and
this in spiteofthecontinualshorteningof
working houra.
There has been an cnormous increase
in the annual agricultural output and in
the value of farm property.
Thediminution in the amount ofthe
siirplus is due to expenditures on ac
count of such highly desirable improve
ments as rural free dclivery, irrigation,
pensions to veterans and the purchase
of the Panama canal. There has been
rigid economy in the administration of
public business and all offenders have
been held to strict accountability, no
mercy being shown to wrongdoers, who
have been hunted out and prosecuted
with the utmost vigilance.
The republican party's achievemeots
in the past afford a prophecy for the
future.
THE MANEUVER8 OVER.
The maneuvers and the third battle of
Manassas are things ot the past. Train
after train loaded wiih troops left thc

The first actualminglingof thenegrocs

In addition to the SonthCarolinians the
Third Tennessee Infantry was conspicu
ous by their absence, while the other
Southern commands paraded by bat
talions instead of reginienta. Mauy of
the individual aoldiers simply droped out
of line and declined to take part in the
parade. The North Carolina troops
were abaent also.
The Seventieth Virginia Reginient
and the Richmond Howitzers fought
with the Blues in the "battles." In
double-time movement at the review on
Saturday the artillery losta wheel, throw
ing three men to the ground. They
jumped quickly to the gun, replaced the
wbeel and did it so quickly that the ac
? ident did not break the line. For this
they received special commendation
from the rciewiag oflicers.
There were scores of prostrations, and
the heat and dust combined to make
hundreds of men sick, while sleeping in
a blanket on the hard ground, with the
sky for roof, is not the acrae of comfort
but as a whole tbe maneuvers bave been
notably successful.
Aa a result of aconference with Judge
