Bacon, i New York, and a number of others. . sensation was created by a charge mac by Judge Parker that Mr. Oeorge I Oor'elyou, while chairman of the repul Hean national couimif.ee in 1904, solic ted a large contribution from tbe Stat dard Oil Company; tbat a demand wi made for $250,000, but that only $100 OOO was given, which was spent in elec ing Mr. Roosevelt. Judge Parker sai that he expected this would bring ot another letter from the president. Whe ha reproached Mr. Roosevelt for usir Governor Haskell's record against Mi Bryan and said that the democrat1 standard-bearer had "earned the rigt to ba saved from such an insult," tbei was an outburst of enthusiasm lattin inverai minutes. Senator Daniel wai at his best, and bis eloquence, couple with flashes of humor, were much ei joyed. He handled Mr. Roosevel roughly, and showed the insincerity < the republican party in its bluster againi trusts. The laying of the corner stone of th new school building for gill, yesterda evening was wi;nessed by a large gathei lng.

Aa was stated yesterday, Bulgaria ha declared her independence, and what ba been predicted for a quarter of a centurj haa come to pass aod many fear this ac of Prince Ferdinand will result in light lng the fires of European war. The dc ruin'pn of Turkey in Europe is agaic threatened. Bulgaria has cast her pawt "' h- belie! that she will so involve Eu r pr ss 'o mtike recognition of her claim nece^ry for tbe peace of tbe conntriet tbat framed tbe Berlin pact. The Triple Alliance will give immediate attention tc the matter, looking to the pacification ol the quarrel that has as its nominal occa alon a quarrel between Bulgaria aod Tur? key over control of the Oriental Railroad. Aa was stated in the Gsz.tte, eleven persons were bumed to death in an in cendiary fire in a tenement in New York farly yesterday morning. Three barrels stuffed with rubbish soaked with oil blazed fiercely io tbe lower hall, cutting oft tbe escape of the 50 or more persons who were sleeping on the opper floors. The scenes in connection with the fire were among the most horrible ever de acrlbed. The firing of tenement houses in New York is becoming common, but the p lice, fur some reason, fail to ap? prehend the fiend*. In Hts speech a\ Asheville, X. o., Mr. Kern, tSe democrot c candidate for vice presided ottered a truth when he said: "Patriotic men everywhere will agree with me that tbe third term idea is no more bateiul to tbe minda of the Ameri? can people than that the president of this great nation shall nndertske to name and dictate bis own successor." But the great trouble now is thu there are so few troe patriots in the country. As AXTHii'ArED,Th7Q.edTcalboard of army officer* in the case of Ool. William F. Stewart, TJ. S.

Oil Oo. had contributed $100,000 to the Roosevelt campaign, waa touched upon. Mr. Sheldon aaid that while money waa not literally flowing into the parti's coffers, the committee waa far from being on the financial rocks. "It is never an essy matter to raise a large sum of money?one million or two million or even a half a million dollars by popular subscriptoo," said Mr. Sheldon. "Oam ptign contributions are not as large nor made as freely as they were fonr.eight or twelve years ago; but they were not ex? pected and inch funds aa were then con? tributed are not really needed now. Of course our policy frr publicity haa been somewhat of a hindrance, for many wtskhy persons do not wiah it to be known that they are making large con? tributions for any purpose whatever. Personally, I should like to see better revolts, but I am far from diehrarteoed." About sixty railway commissioners representing nearly every tttte in the union vere present wt en Preaident 0. C McOhord, of Kentucky, called the 20th annual convention of the National Association of Railway Commissioners to order at tbe rooms of tbe loteistate Commerce Commission today, The commissioners expect to be in session fur three days during which time many im? portant subj acts will be discussed.

Both of these men are now actively engaged in traveling over Florida, making partisan speeches for Taft and Sherman and for themselves.

UNEARTH NEST OF SMUGGLERS D.sat ter haa overtaken wh*t the New York customs officers believe to be one of the biggest glove-smuggling syndi? cates that ever has attempted to beat the government out of duties on this ar? ticle of wearing apparel. Tbe passengers arriving on a German steamer from Mediterranean ports first were seised with about $2,000 worth of mosquetsires, and later a New York dealer was caught with $1,200 worth of the same articles of the ssme make, which he was alleged to posses unlaw? fully. A woman in Brooklyn next waa fouod to have more than $500 worth of them in a manner declared to be improp? er, and finally, on Saturday, a butcher's wagoo, while leaving the It-Pan Line steamer Nord America, waa held up and its load of bay was fouod to cover a basket wherein lay $400 worth of the gloves. A distinct connection has been found, so the special agents of the federal Treas? ury Depart neut and the local custom house detectives ssy, among all these oases, so that already tbe evidence points to a widespread "conspiracy in gloves." The msj rily of the prisoners in these glove seizures are Italians, some of them unable to speak a word of English, ?<nd in every instance tbe port of departute for the gooda has been on the Mediter? ranean. That some of these prisoneis promptly were bailed out lu consider? able sums, though they are not citizens or even have their residence in this country, being a class of prisoners wbo almost Invariably have to go to jail pending the trial of their cases, is one of tbe features of the sitnatiou which the custom-house people say haa been very suggestive to them. In conse? quence "the man higher np" la now their quest. DR. LLOYD DECLINES Rev.

Whl e further steps may be taken to induce Dr. Lloyd to reverse his dec sion, there is no prospect whatever that he will change his mind, which waa made up after the moat aerious consideration and the moat deliberate thought.

Tbe attendance wa between 5,000 and 6.000. Io hia speech Judge Parker said : "The continuance of a political par tj in power with all the offices under iti control encourages tbe upbuilding o graft aod grafters. The careful busineei man appoints to a responsible position s man whose put record is unassailable ir every respect. The government should exercise similar care. Judge Taft ad' mils that trusts and combinations have been built up within tbe past 10 years, He never tried to stop them. Why did not the republican party demand revi? sion of tbe ttriff at tho lut session? The word revision in the plank may mean cutting tbe tariff down, but it may also mean building the tariff up. By at? tacking Haskell, Roosevelt wished thc people to get the Impression that Has kell was the connecting link between the Standard Oil Company and the demo bratic party. The Issues this year seem to me a great deal more impoit.nt then some of these two-penny things tbat have been discussed. Senator Daniel followed Judge Parker, ind was greeted with a mild ronnd of applause, when Senator Rayner intro luced him as one who would some day convince the nation that he waa worthy So be preaident. In the main body of his speech the senator based his theme on tbe work which bad been accomplished aod not iccompliahed by President Roosevelt. ?ether than upon the qualifications of Mr. Sryao. "I hope" he said, that "Presided Roosevelt will have finer game In Africa han he has had with the trusts. While naking a whoop louder than the wildest ndian, I doubt very much if the repub ican party has ever taken a scalp. Laughter.] Tbe picture of a cheating .etchant behind the oell is a tar better leterrent and object lesson than threats nd whoops.

The note ia accepted u the moat omin ious indication of a continental muddle.
