Several membera of the gun crew in the forward turret were stunii.d today ln tbe bursting of the muzzle of the great twelve-inch gUO on the left ofthe turret.

The platform will follow doeely tbe outline of tho governor's ipeecb and will not contain a plank to act as a stumbling block in tbe con vention. Tbe platform will endorse tbe nitional administration and President Taft'i plan for a tariff commieeion. Senator Cullom. Speaker Cannon and all of the Illinois < ongressmcn will draw an endorsetiient, but it will be so worded tbat none can take offetise. Senator Lorimer will not be men tioned.

Y., Sept. 28.?That the Payne Aldricb tariff bill absolutely ful filled tbe promises of the la.-t rcpuhli cao platform for 'downward revision" and tbat it is an excellent, law with the possible exoaption of the wool sehedule, was the delianl declaratiotl of Berano K. Payna, one of \u autbors, in a Bpeecfa here today. Among other tbings he said: "The law assigned by the president has resulted in a general revision downward, and nothing will ever make itappear otherwise. The Payne law bas turned a deficH of $50,000,000 into a surplus of 122,000,000 in thi first year's operation. It is an eaay thing to say that the present tariff law has incrcased the co9t of living, but it is impossible to provc it. On the other hand, on nearly every item where we redueed the tariff or where we left it the sarao, dealers have main Uiined the old price and some times incrcased it. We redueed tbe tariff on lumber from $2 to 11.25, and lumber brings tbe BBS-C old price. Wcim: the duty on shinglos from 30 cents to 50 ecate aad the priee of shingles has been lower than ever since the act be? came a law. We redueed the tariff on nearly every article, and especially on many of the articles in the provi-ion line, and yet the price has gone up."
