THREE MEN IN BLACK COMMIT DARING CRIME RICH NEW YORK FAMILY HAS THRILLING EXPERIENCE TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS WORTH OF JEWELS STOLEN Masked Trio Threaten to Cut Off Vie. tim'« Finger— and Chfl. dren Covered with Guns [By Associated Prnil VTEW YORK, Nov. B.—With the ray |\ of a burglar's lantern shining in '■*• ' their eyes and two revolvers held jby masked men covering them, the five members of the family of Charles B. Tayntor, a wealthy granite dealer, lay In bed In the Tayntor home at Borough Park, Brooklyn for more than an hour this morning, while a third masked burglar piled up $10,000 worth of Jewel ry and silverware. Then the burglars bound Mr. Tayntor hand and foot and escaped with their booty. The burglary was most daring and Mr. Tayntor Is convinced that the rob bers spent many days in planning it. Mr. Tayntor, who has a number of rich granite quarries in New England, Is known as a crack shot, being a mem ber of the New York State Rifle asso ciation and having been a contestant in the recent Olympic pistol tournament At Bisley, England. It Is believed the burglars knew this and took no chances with him. Hit Victim on Head The three men, when they gained en trance to the house, went at once to a bedroom on the second floor occupied , by Mr. and Mrs. Tayntor and one of the burglars struck Mr. Tayntor a crushing blow on the head with a blackjack as he lay asleep. ■ The blow stunned him and a few minutes later, when Mr. Tayntor re covered his senses, he found three re volvers levelled at him. Mr. and Mrs. Tayntor were made to sit up In bed and two of the burglars held them covered while a third began to search the room. The noise awakened Miss Tayntor, the 15-year-old daughter of the granite dealer, and she came into the room crying. The burglars ordered her into bed with her parents and the child obeyed. '■ - A moment later Charles Tayntor, aged 8 years, and Harold, 12, came into the room. ■ "* Sits on Side of Bed ' They were made to sit on the side of the bed. . - '• '■ The burglar who was ransacking the room found a jewel case with two < ■wedding rings in it on a bureau and was about to take them when Mr. Tayntor asked him not to. The burg lar replied that he would take every thing of value that he could find. Then one of the men standing guard over the family spoke up: "Don't take those wedding ring*. I am a married man and have some sen timents about wedding rings." The rings were left, but two toy banks belonging to Charles and Har old the Tayntor boys, were broken and rifled of $17. The boys cried and were ordered to be quiet. / • When the room had been searched the third robber went downstairs and packed up the silverware. He later returned to the bedroom and com manded Mr. Tayntor to give up a $500 diamond ring he wore. Would Cut Off Finger The ring would not come off and one of the burglars grimly drew a Jack knife and was about to cut Mr. Tayn tor's finger off, when Tayntor protested and asked permission to go to the bathroom to get the ring off with soap and water. "We will do that ourselves," said the man who appeared to be the leader of the trio, and they did. Then the three men produced a rope and bound Mr. Tayntor's hands and feet. They ordered him not to make an outcry for fifteen minutes, saying one of their number would remain on guard that length of time. They then hurried away. It was an hour before Mr. Tayntor could notify the police, as the telephone ■wires were cut. He was able to give a description of the three men, but this will hardly be of any assistance, as the burglars were all dressed alike and wore masks. They wore black suits, black derby hats, kid gloves and white masks and had woolen sneaks over their shoes.

"Such a consideration should never be treated as a reason for either sup porting or opposing a candidate for political office. Are you aware that there are several states in this Union where the majorjty of the people are now Catholics? I should reprobate In the severest terms the Catholics in those states (or in any other states) who refused to vote for the most fit man because he happened to be a Protestant; and my condemnation would be exactly as severe for Protest ants who, under reversed circum stances, refused to vote for a Catholic. Instances Acts "In public life I am happy to si'y that I have known many men Who were etected and constantly re-elected to office In districts where the great majority of the constituents were of a different religious belief. "I know Catholics who have for many years represented constituencies mainly Protestant, and Protestants who have for many years represented constituencies mainly Catholic; and among the congressmen whOBQ I know particularly well was one man of Jew ish faith who represented n district in which there were hardly any Jews at all. All of these nun by their very existence in political life refute the slander you have uttered against their fellow Americans. I believe this re public will endure for many centuries; if so, there will be doubtless among its presidents Protestants and Catholics, and very probably at some tin c Jews. "I have consistently tried while president to act in relation to my fel low Americans of Catholic faith, as t hope that any future president who happens to be a Catholic Will act to ward his fellow Americans of ProatPs tant faith. Had I followed any other course I should bnve felt that 1 was unfit to represent the American people.

B.—The Nonl Deutsche AUgemeine Zeitung, discuss ing: the election of Mr. Taft from a semi-official point of view, says: "The election of William H. Taft is heartily welcomed by Germany. The successor of Mr. Roosevelt is far from being an unknown personality in our political circleß, where his career has been followed with interest for years "The Impression gathered in this way, as well as acquaintance with his personal qualifications, cause us to greet his attainment to the highest office of the great republic with sincere good will.

FRANCE WAITS FOR WORD FROM BERLIN Casa Blanca Dispute in Abeyance Pending Maneuvers Before Reich. stag—Gauls Not Bluffing Is Claim • [By Associated Pr««.t PARIS, Nov. B.—No word has come from Berlin In reference to the German government's attitude in the Casa Hlanca affair, and a further delay is considered likely owing to some con fusion which prevails among the Ger man officials and the necessity of maneuvering before the reichstag. The French opinion remains serenely confident that Germany eventually will yield upon the point which France in sists, that both express regret for the incident. There is no trace of "bluff" in the French attitude and the spectacle pre sented by France last week must have convinced Germany that in all hei dealings with the German government since 1878 France never displayed such an exhibition of national solidarity. Moreover, Germany doubtless Is aware that Great Britain and Russia have been consulted upon every step France has taken and fully share this govern ment's view, and in addition are pra pared to give material as well as moral support to France.

B.—With election returns arriving by every mail and mistakes being found in over half, necessitating their return to county boards of election, the results on the state ticket which are believed by lead ing Democrats to be shrouded in doubt, seem to favor the election of the Re publican candidates below governor.

Green, Republican, Is elected by a plurality which may run to 5000. Mr. Green had not conceded his defeat in the face of claims by the opposition. E. H. Fulllngton, Republican, for state auditor, is elected, according to returns, by 15,000, and Judge John A. Shauck and J. L. Price arc elected to the supreme court by pluralities ap proximating 20,000.

REPORT MANILA RID OF PLAGUE MERCHANTS FEAR WRONG IM PRESSION MAY PREVAIL ASSOCIATION ISSUES REASSUR ING STATEMENT Citizens Anxious That Rear Admiral Sperry Permit Bluejackets to Land, as Orlgjnally Intended [By Associated Press] MANILA, Nov. 9.—The Merchants' association of this city has issued the following statement: Manila is reported by the health au thorities to be practically free of chol wa. Since November 1, in a population of nearly 250,000, one case only has oc curred. This was in an outlying dis trict usually populated by whites. The late visitation proved to ye of a light character since its beginning, and in the month of July only twenty-two cases among the white population. Of these but tan proved fatal. There was not a single case among the 12,000 city school children. Since the American occupation in 1898, the number of whites in the island attacked by cholera is 247. Of these 129 were fatal. Deaths in 1902 The majority of deaths occurred In 1902, when there were 60,000 troops in the islands, and no preparations exist ed for protection from epidemic. The soldiers from Port McKinley and sailors from the Asiatic squadron are now entering the city freel. and the citizens are anxious that Rear Admiral Sperry will permit them to carry out the plans for the reception of the At lantic battleship fleet. If these plans are not carried out, It is feared that a false and harmful im pression will be given to the world of the sanitary condition of Manila, which unquestionably Is better than that of any other city in the orient and proba bly unexcelled by any large city of the world.

B.—The armamenti) commission reporting: In the senate on the project of Increased naval and other defenses, recommends a maximum expenditure over a period of six years of $33,000,000 in place of the $75,000,000 voted, by the chamber of deputies last August. The legislative conflict thus created, and long ago anticipated, will, how ever, be summarily ended if, as ex pected, the senate confirms the com mission's report.
