and the Place de la Concorde. A train
entered the Place de la Concorde sta

signals, crashed Into the rear carriage.
Luckily both trains were going slowly.
Nevertheless, the shock partially smashed
the end of the car, shattering the win
dows of both trains and extinguished the
electric lights. There was great excite

to the horror. Women screamed ana
wounded • passengers appealed for • help,
while others loudly called for lights. The

NEW YORK, Oct., 19.— An officer of the
Newport Yacht Club said to-day there
would be a new boat built to defend the
America's cup and that the Herreshoffs
would be the builders.-
This is the first positive declaration that
has been made In this' important matter.
It was not told' whether the new yacht
would be owned by an Individual or a
syndicate, but an announcement Indicat
ing, the. steps taken In the proper defense
of the old trophy will probably be made
at the regular meeting of the club to be
held on the evening of Thursday, October
25.
This will be welcome news, not only to
the yachtsmen, but to the public gener
ally. , Leading members ot/the yachting
community have hoped for the announce
ment ever since it was known that Sir
Thomas Llpton had determined to send
his second challenge; They were sure it
would be difficult to defeat the Columbia
if she had again to defend . the' cup, but
felt it would be taking chances and that
the prize should not thus be endangered
It will now be left with the Herreshoffs
to produce aboat that is faster than the
Columbia. These builders have, perhaps
reached the limit of lightnesB and safety
in the matter" of spars and rigging, but
it is to be found out If they have reached
these limits In the matter' of hull con
struction.

financial affairs, tho Tammany, chief now
has a stake on Mr. Bryan of $120,000 at
odds varying; from 2>4 to 4 to i. He stands
to win $440,000 if Bryan is elected.
How much cash. Louis Wormser has at
stake belonging to himself no one knows.
Much of the money which he has bet on
McKinley has boen Intrusted to him by
conlldont Republicans. "In Wall street he
is credited with having wagered almost
$<y>0,000. Thi* has been plaped at odds
which will average 4 to 1.
Lively betting wafi to-day shown by the
Bryan men. The -largest amount risked
was $12,000 against S50.000 on McKinley.
Several bets were Involved in the sum,
but the names of the principals were
withheld. The sum of $50,006, Involved in
a wager between Jacob Field and "Jack"
McDonald, a bookmaker, believed to be
8oting for Richard Croker, was posted
¦with Bell & Co. to-day. Mr. Field said
he thought Mr. McDonald had made the
VHger in his own behalf.
"I am a strong believer, tn McKinley,"
said Mr. Field. So sure am I of Repub
lican success that ? will wager $300,000 at
4 to 1 that Bryan will be defeated. His
recent speeches have been so full of anar
chistic Ideas that . I think they will cost
him many votes, and this Is one of the
chief reasons why I am willing to bet
against him." ¦•¦¦q, ' ¦••<:•: '

NEW YORK, Oct. 19.— So shrewd a pol
itician as Richard Croker, whose knowl
edge of betting has been acquired in a
practical school, is generally believed in
Wall street to have misjudged the trend
of public opinion. He is thought to have
failed utterly in an attempt to depress the
odds on McKinley to such an extent as to
permit him to "hedge" his Bryan bets
with financial advantage to himself.

LOURENZO MARQUES, Oct. 19.— Mr. Kruger" was secretly taken at 5 o'clock this morn
ing on board the Dutch cruiser Gelderland, on which vessel he is to sail for Holland. ' The
reason given for Mr. Kruger's hurried embarkation on the, steamer Gelderland is that he
feared the Boers here would attack him. The feeling of the refugees against Mr. Kruger for flee
ing from the country is very strong. He left the Governor's house in a hired carriage, accompa
nied by Dr. Haimann, the Governor following in a private carriage. The party drove through the
custom-house and embarked from'the customs pier instead of from the passenger jetty. It is re
ported that the Gelderland will sail to-morrow. . .

4. My speech delivered at St. Louis the lath
of Sfotember on the trust question.
These documents have already been widely
published in the press of the country and the
members of your party are fully informed in
recarrt to my views on the questions covered.
In 1SS6 the money question was the question
of paramount importance, but the Republican
party.: by its disregard of the principles of our
republic and by its advocacy of policies repug
nant to the doctrines of self-government, has
left us no choice but to summoo all lovers of the
Declaration of Independence to the defense of
that sacred document and the constitution
framed in accordance with it.
Xn your letter you quote several appropriate
extracts from Lincoln's speeches. I find In a
tpeech by Lincoln in 1S53 a defense of the
Declaration of Independence, accompanied by
a fervent and patriotic appear to his country
men not to abandon the principles therein
enunciated. It is so applicable to the present
time and so in harmony with the references
you have made to Lincoln's words that I quote
the . followlns extract:
"Now, my countrymen, if you have been taught
doctrines conflicting with the great landmarks
of the Declaration of Independence, if you have
listened to suggestions which would take away
from its grandeur and mutilate the fair sym
metry of its proportions, if you have been In
clined to believe that all men are net created
e«ual in those inalienable rights enumerated
by onr chart of liberty, let me entreat you to
come back. Return to the fountain whose
waters spring close by the blood of the revolu
tion. Think nothing of me; take no thought
for the political fate of any man whomsoever,
but come back to the truths that are in the
Declaration of Independence. You may do any
thinc with me you choose If you will but heed
these sacred principles. You may not only de
feat m« for the Senate, but you may take me
and put me to death. While pretending no in
difference to earthly honors, I do claim to be
actuated in this contest by something htgher
than an anxiety for office. I charge you to
drop every paltry and insignificant thought for
any man's success. It is nothing; I am noth
ing: Judge Douglass is nothing. But do not
destroy that Immortal emblem of humanity-
the Declaration of American Independence.
How harsh th» contrast between the lofty
sentiments "expressed by Lincoln and the sor
did mercenary appeal now made to the people
by 'the Republican party. How great the
chasm between the statesmanship which would
sacrifice life itself in defense of that immortal
document which has been the model of repub
lics ever since it was promulgated and the
commercialism which woold sacrifice everr
noble and holy purpose in pursuit of new mar
kets and would indorse the doctrine that trade
can be purchased with human blood— a doc
trine advanced by those who want to give syn
dicates a chance to exploit distant colonies.
In response to the hope which you express,
permit me to assure you that my political obli
gations are due entirely to the plain people,
who ask no special privileges at the hands of
the government, but demand only equality of
rlchts and opportunity to enjoy life liberty and
the pursuit of happiness under the flag of a
republic. These people, the nation s wealth
Drodueers In time of peace and the nation s
warriors in time of war. have already done
more for me than I can i ever repay. Whether
I am elected or not, it shall be my ambition to
Drotect their rights and advance their interest*
by every means within my power. Very truly
yours, r# J* BRTAJJ.

BRYAN'S LETTER
TO SILVERITES
Mr Bryan has claimed to be apainM trusts.
ret Mr Bryan's own manager. Senator Jones.
i« not only" the chief l«-iK-nciary of the cotton
bale trust but he nuibbln- about it and says
it is not a trust. Mr. Ilryan was the £U<-st of
Mr Oukor In New Tork. and if he is corr^ct-
Jv quoted, say* Mr. Croker is the great^t
nian In tbe world and Tammany Hall the
neatest organization In thr world. I>"t m* tell

This -ounsd for the surar trust introduces
Mr iiryan vrbOM thetis is a denunciation or
tru-ts- " Mr. Crokt-r, who is the only man
through v.hom Mr. Bryan can hope to ,. b «
elected, and who r»f the chief spirit on that

Mr Hrvan and denouncing trust*, is counsel
of the corporations endeavoring to break down
the tnacbice tax Uv.\ Mr. Bryan is intro-
Gueed and championed by these three men and
is t'lnc managed by Senator Jones.
Nov.- understand me. I do not enter Into
the merits* of these trusts. ea\e that I believe
the ice trust not only from the character of
the commodity in which it deals, but from its
connection with the lea<itn K local politicians,
can iiroiKTly »-» denounced as iniquitous. Still.
I havr no question that there are plenty of falr
ly h^net-t men who have gone into these trusts
fimply as a business matter, as they would go
into arv corporation, but what 1 want to em
t.hasizo is the utter hypocrisy of ueitur another
tru*t as a party shibboleth in the Bryanized
IVmiKTary when the prominent leaders of that
party have private ownership in the very trusts
which they ostentatiously denounce.
' Mr Bryan U maklnK even.- effort to carry
»¦»• York and he known his sole chance— a
\ery i-mall <>r>«\ gentlemen— lies in the Cr'iker
ired Democracy of that State using every
means at it* command. When Mr. Bryan al
lies himself to Mi". Crcker and Is the bene
ficiary of all for which Mr. CYoker rtaads. he
forfeit* the right to be treated as sincere in
his mgMeftlan to trusts.
We have often been told that Mr. Bryan
must be ppnloned for his crude and raw
theories of finance and economics and even for
Mf aidinr and abetting the Malay bandits
who are shooting down our Koldlers in the
Philippines, uiv.n the ground that he has good
intentions; that he is sincere in his denuncia
tion of wrong. I do not see how such a claim
can t>e uret-d by e gueFt of the Tammany
Democracy, one of the foundations of which is
b'ackmai'lr.g the protected vice and infamy
that in New Yoik City flourishes with hideous
rar.kness undrr Tammany's control.' Mr.
Croker Is trying to help Mr. Bryan to na
tional euceeys, which would mean the deepest
Ftain ur>on our financial honor at home, the
deepest stain on the honor of our flag abroad.
In return he is trying to help Mr. Croker to
brir.«r down the Ptate of New York to the level
of the coarse and vicious evil to which Xew
York City has already been reduced.

GEORGETOWN, Ky., Oct. 19.—Com
monwealth's Attorney Franklin began his
speech in the Youtsey trial this' afternoon
and spoke till 7 o'clock. He scored ex-
Governor Taylor, saying if he had two
sparks of courage he would return nere
and help Youtsey out of this trouble if
any of the witnesses had lied on Youtsey;
that If Taylor had even only one spark
of manhood he would now commit- suicide
under the whip of his conscience. He said
if Arthur Goebel had told an untruth as
to what Youtsey told him then Goebel
was a worse man than the one who as
sassinated William Goebel. He . cited
many incidents as told by other witnessed
that corroborated what Youtsey told Goe
bel, and said ex-Governor Bradley's ab
.^*nce as a witness practically corrobo
rated Culton's testimony as to Youtsey,
for if Culton did not have a talk wltu
Bradley then he ought to be willing to go
a thousand miles to confound Culton and
save Youtsey from death.
There will be no verdict in the Youtsey
case to-night. Wh<m court met at 8:30

In the Sunday. Call of Oc-
tober 18, > Stuart Robson tells
some interesting stories and -
reminiscences of great; player
folk of .the old day*. 7 ¦ •
For several years i^ucalyptol. Gualacot
and Hydrastin have teen recogmlzed aa
standard remedies for, catarrhal troubles,
but they have always been given separate-
ly and only very recently «n Ingenious
chemist succeeded In combining them, to-
gether with other antiseptics. Into a pleas-
ant, effective tablet.
Druggists sell the remedy under tha
name of Stuart's Catarrh Tablets and it
has met -with remarkable success In th©
cure of nasal catarrh, bronchial and
throat catarrh and In- catarrh of tho
stomach.
Mr F. N. Benton, whose address Is cars
of Clark House, Troy, N. Y.. says: When
I run up against anything that Is good I
Ilka to tell people of It. 1 have be«>n
troubled with catarrh more or less for
some time. Last winter more than ever.
Tried several so-called. cures, but did not
get any benent from them. About six
weeks ago I bought a 50-cent box of
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets and I am glad
to say that they have done wonders for
me and I do not hesitate to . let' all my
friends know that Stuart's Catarrh Tab-
lets are the right thing. • -—¦¦
Mr. Geo. J. Casanova of Hotel Griffon,
West Ninth street. New York City,
writes: I have commenced using Stuart's
Catarrh Tablets and already they havo
given me better results than any catarrh
cure I have ever tried.
A leading physician of Pittsburgr advises
the use of Stuart's Catarrh Tablets la
preference to any other treatment for
catarrh of the head, throat or stomach.
He claims they are far superior to In-
halers, salves, lotions or powder, and ara
much more convenient and pleasant to
take and are so harmless that little chil-
: dren take them with benefit, as they con-
tain no opiate, cocaine or any polaonaua
drug.
All druggists sell Stuart's Catarrh Tab-
lets at 50 cents for full-sized package, and
they are probably the safest and most re-
liable euro for any form of catarrh.
