Buckley was convicted of murder in the first degree on February 7, 1902. and on April 26 of the same year was sentenced to be hanged. Buckley was convicted of killing a non-union machinist named Rice. This is the third reprieve that has been granted the condemned man. ANOTHER REPRIEVE IS GRANTED BUCKLEY PARKERSBURG, W.

The Call, to ascertain the strength of the respective candidates, Interro gated various members of the Legis lature in New York and Kings County as to their preference. It was dis closed that Kings County would be al most solidly in favor of re-election of Depew and that New York County would vote for Depew if it were agree able to Governor Odell. On the other hand. If Governor Odell desired the nomination himself or decided to sup port Black for the Senatorshlp, there is little doubt that New York County members, with practical unanimity, would do Just as the Governor wished. The Call was Informed to-day by two very prominent politicians, one an official of the State committee who is in the confidence of Senator Platt, and the other a well-known membeV of Congress from the interior of the State, in the confidence of Governor Odell, that an adjustment had been made of the differences between De pew And Black and that Depew would return to the Senate unchallenged, it was stated that Governor Odell had said there would be no opposition to Depew. NEW YORJv, Nov. 9.— "Has Frank S. Black abandoned his ambition to be elected United States Senator to Bucceed Senator Chauncey M. De pew?" was a question asked very gen erally in Republican circles to-day. It was agreed that if Black had not abandoned his intention the liveliest sort of a fight would occur between himself and Depew at Albany in Janu ary — one backed by Governor Odell, the other by Senator Platt.

Supreme Court bench, possibly as the successor of Justice Fuller, who is ex pected soon to resign. President Roose velt considers Secretary Taft to be of full Presidential size, and he.also con siders Elihu Root, Taft's predecessor, as a most available man for the Repub lican standard bearer. Root has the added distinction and qualification or being a New Yorker. Senator Fairbanks is as good as an announced candidate. Another man more demonstrative than he would have already declared a candidacy. Senators Fairbanks and Beveridge are always at swords' points in Indi ana, although they seldom admit it. One administration official . expressed the opinion to-day that they would kill each other off as candidates for first place on the ticket. Secretary Shaw has worked harder on the stump than any other membei bf the Cabinet in this campaign. It has done Shaw quite as much good as President Roosevelt. He doubtless will fce an active candidate for the nomina tion, strengthening his fences at every opportunity in the meantime. He is ex* pected to remain Secretary of the Treasury 'during the next administra tion. Secretary Taft is regarded as the man with the brightest chance, but his disposition is more toward a judicial life, and many of his friends believe he would greatly prefer a place on the The President has long held positive convictions on the third-term question. When Judge Parker, In his speech of acceptance, declared he would not take a second term if elected, the President privately admitted that he was opposed to a third term for himself, as well as for any one else. He declined at that time to declare himself out of the race in 1908. This he did because he feared that a declaration would be taken as an effort to make political capital in the campaign. He thought over the form of his statement and gave it out as soon as the returns showed a Re publican victory. This announcement throws the field wide open to all ambitious, willing and reluctant candidates. ,If the President had not eliminated himself last night there would soon have been indirect pressure brought by the various candi dates for Presidential honors in 1908. That was the case after President Me- Kinley was elected in 1900. His con victions were well known, but Senator Fairbanks and other ambitious men de sired a formal declaration. Immediately after the Philadelphia convention in X900 Senator Fairbanks began to plan for the nomination in 1904; Leslie M. Shaw, then Governor of Iowa, began putting up a modest light ning rod, and the Roosevelt supporters would soon have been in the line, when President McKinley was assassinated. This changed the entire political as pect. Everybody conceded that Roose velt would be his own successor until his opposition to the trusts caused talk of Senator Hanna. The following men ( are considered available for the nomination In 1908: Elihu Root of New York. William H. Taf t of Ohio, Leslie M. Shaw of Iowa, Senator Fairbanks, Senator' Knox and Senator. Beveridge of Indiana. Within the past few weeks it has be come known here that Senator Bever idge covets the Republican nomination. That President Roosevelt should so soon declare himself out is not consid ered favorable to Senator Beveridge. It is improbable that a Beveridge boom will be formally launched much before 1908. CALL BUREAU. HOTEL BARTON. WASHINGTON, D. C, Nov. 9.—Presi dent Roosevelt made up his mind fully two weeks ago that as soon as he was elected he would forswear a third term. This decision was reached without importunity from any of the * several prominent public men considered avail able for the Republican nomination tour years hence. "A little over a month ago we esti mated 4 50,000 votes would be polled in the United States. The returns will exceed these figures. Our gains have been losses to the Democratic party. Four years from now I expect the Democratic party to disappear. Then It will be a trial of Socialism against Republicanism — labor against capi tal." u- CHICAGO, Nov. 9. — The cheers that rang" from Socialist audiences last night when the election bulletins showed heavy gams for Debs were re echoed to-day in expressions of satis faction by Socialist leaders In Chica go. One of the foremost of these, Charles H. Kerr, predicted that the Democracy would disappear before the next Presidential election and the issue would be Socialism versus,Re publicanism. "A month ago," said Kerr, "we es timated that nearly 45,000 Socialist votes would be polled in Illinois. Yes terday's election shows that nearly that many were cast in Chicago alone, the returns showing 42,350. Perhaps as many more will be - recorded throughout the State, although large crowded cities are breeding spots for the theory of industrial freedom for which Socialism stands.

In the Legislature, Chairman Connor of the La Follette State Central Com mittee claims, there will be eighty members pledged to carry out fhe measures advocated by Governor La Follette. Of this number sixty-three are Assemblymen and seventeen 1 Sena tors, or a majority of each house. Chair man Golden of the Stalwart faction claims that the Stalwarts and Demo crats combined will control a majority of each house, and he predicts that if Senator Quarles is not re-elected the Legislature probably will find Itself In a deadlock. MILWAUKEE, Wis., Nov. 9.— The result of the election In Wisconsin shows that Roosevelt ran ahead of every expectation and carried the State by a plurality estimated at between 60,000 and 75,000; that Governor La Fol lette has been re-elected by a plurality of about 50,000 and that the Congres sional complexion remains unchanged from two years ago. The Legislature, which is to elect a United States Sena tor to succeed J. V. Quarles, is largely Republican,, and. the question of whether Wisconsin shall have a pri mary election law has carried by a safe majority. One of the surprises in the election was the big increase in the vote of the Social-Democratic party. Four years ago that party polled 4453 votes in Mil waukee; two years ago, 10,704, and in this election, 1S".12O. The Social-Demo crats elected four Assemblymen and one Senator to the Legislature.

"We entered this canvass with ESOPUS, N. T., Nov. 9.— Judge Park er to-night gave to the press the fol lowing open letter: "ESOPUS, N. Y., Nov. 9. 1904. To the Democrats of the nation: bur thanks are' due to the members of the National Committee and to the exec utive committee In charge of the cam paign for most unselfish, capable and brilliant party service. All that it was possible for men to do they did. but our difficulty was beyond the reach of party managers. "I am most grateful to them and wish in this general way to extend my thanks to the workers as well as to the rank and file all over the country. I know how hard they struggled against overwhelming odds and I only wish I could take each one by the hand and thank him. "Deeply as I regretted leaving the bench at the time, in the presence of overwhelming defeat I" do not lament it. I thought it was my duty. In the light of my present information I am now more than ever confident that I did right. I shall never seek a nomina tion for public office, but I shall to the best of my ability stand by the party that has honored me. and, through the party, serve my country. "The party has In the near future a l-reat mission. Before long the people vill realize that the tariff-fed trusts and illegal combinations are absorbing the wealth of the nation. Then they will wish to throw off these leeches, but the Republican party will not aid them to do it, for Its leaders appreciate too well the uses to which the moneys of the trusts can be put in political campaigns. URGES ORGANIZATION. "And I beg the co-operation, as a fellow worker, of every Democrat In the country. ALTON B. PARKER." "If we would help the people, If we would furnish an organization through which they may be relieved of a party that has grown so corrupt that it will gladly enter into the partnership of the trusts to secure money for election purposes, we must forget the differences of the past and begin this day to build up, wher ever it may be needed, a broad and effective organization. We must, by constant teaching, through the press and from the platform, apprise the people of the way the vicious tariff circle works. "We must bring home to them at other than election times the fact that money contributed to the Repub lican party by the trusts is not only dishonest money, but it is given that the trusts may without hindrance take a much larger sum from the people. "In the presence of a defeat that would take away all personal ambition, were It true that otherwise it possess ed me — I do no't hesitate to say that In my opinion the greatest moral question which now confronts us is: Shall the trusts and corporations be prevented from contributing money to control or to aid in controlling elections?

The latter claim Is disputed by both Dem ocrats and American party men. The voting strength of the latter party Is problematical as yet and will not be known until the count is finished in this city. It may be a week before accurate figures on the State vote are available. Chairman Evans of the Democratic State Committee concedes the election of eight Republican Congressmen in Missouri. They are:* Frank D. Klelp per in the Third District. Frank B. Ful kerson in the Fourth, Edgar C. Ellis in the Fifth. John Welborn in the Seventh, Richard Bartholdt In the Tenth, Marcus Rhodes in the Thir teenth, William T. Tyndal In the Fourteenth and Casslus M. Shartel in the Fifteenth. ST. LOUIS, Nov. 9.— Roosevelt has carried Missouri by 10,000 to 15,000. The •only Democrat elected is Folk for Gov ernor, who made a great race against the Roosevelt- landslide. His plurality will be about 25,000. The Legislature is doubtful, with chances favoring a Re publican body to elect Senator Cock rell's successor. Republican Congress men have been elected In the Third, Fourth, Sixth. Tenth and Fifteenth districts. "Among these may be mentioned the postal telegraph system, state ownership of railroads, the election of Federal Judges for fixed terms' and the election of postmasters by the people for their respective communities. Instead of having the Government controlled by corporations, through offi cers chosen by corporations, we must have a Government of the people by the people and for the people; a Government administered by the Jefferson ian maxim of equal rights to all and special privileges to none. "Hope and duty point the way. To doubt the success of our cause is to doubt the triumph of the right, for ours is, and must be, the cause of the masses. With malice toward none and charity for all, let us begin the cam paign of 190S; let us appeal to the moral sentiment of the country and ar raign the policies of the Republican party before the bar of the public con science." It .takes time to direct attention to an evil and still more time to con solidate sentiment In favor of a remedy, and Bryan Is not sanguine enough to believe that all the reforms that he favors will at once be indorsed by any party platform, but he will proceed to point out the reforms which he believes to be needed. He says: "The Democratic party must make Its attack upon the trusts so ve hement that no one will suspect it of secret aid from them. It will be to its advantage If it will begin the next campaign with an announcement that no trust contributions will be accepted and then prove its sincerity by pivir.g the public access to its contribution list. In public enterprises the names of contributors are generally made public, in order to denote the character and purpose of the work. "Roosevelt has fc-ur years in which to make good his declaration that no obligators were Incurred by the acceptance of trust funds. He will disappoint either the contributors or the voters. If he disappoints the con tributors the trust question may be put in the process of settlement. If he disappoints the people they will have a chance to settle with his party four years hencp. 'Death to every private monopoly* must be the slogan of the party on this question: any other position Is a surrender. The platforms of 1900 and 1904 declare that a private monopoly Is indefensible and intol erable, and this declaration presents the issue upon the trust question. ¦ The party must continue its defense of the interests of the wage- CEincrs: it must protect them from the encroachments of the capitalist. The fact that lalxrring men have not always shown their appreciation of the party's position ought not to deter the party from doing its duty in re gard to them. The labor question is not one that concerns employers and employes alone: It concerns the entire community, and the people at large have an interest in the Just settlement of labor controversies. For that reason they must insist upon remedial legislation in regard to the hvuiB and arbitration, and they must so limit the authority of the courts in contempt cases as to overthrow what is known as government by in junction. "The party must continue Its opposition to national banks of issue and must insist upon divorcing the Treasury Department from Wall street. "The party must continue its fight for the popular election of Senators and for direct legislation wherever the principle can be applied. It must not only maintain its position on old issues, but it must advance to the consideration of new questions as they arise." Few Reforms at a Time. "The trust question presents the most acute phase of the contest be tween Democracy and plutocracy, so far as economic issues are concerned. The President virtually admits that the trusts contributed to his campaign fund, l>ut he denies that they received any promises of aid or immunity. Xo well informed : person doubts that the large corporations have furnished the Republican campaign fund during the campaign of 1896 and 1900 and l?04. and no one can answer the logic of Judge Parker's arraignment of trust contributions. The trusts are run. on a business principle. They do not subscribe millions of dollars to a campaign unless they are paying for favors already granted, or purchased favors for future delivery. The weak ness of Judge Parker's position was that the charge was made at the close of the campaign, when It was neutralized by a counter charge. The trusts cannot be fought successfully by any party that depends upon trust funds to win the election. Vehement Jfttack on Trusts. "The party must also maintain Its position on the tariff question. No answer has been made to the Indictment against the high tariff, and yet, there, too, the burden of the tariff system is concealed by the method In which the taxes are collected. It cannot be made the^ole Issue In a cam paign. The party must renew its demand for an income tax, to be se cured througrh a constitutional amendment. In order that wealth may be made to pay its share of the expense of the Government. To-day we are collecting rractically all our Federal revenues from taxes upon consumption, and these bear heaviest UDon the poor and light upon the rich. "The party must maintain its position In favor of bimetallism. It can not surrender its demand for the use of Its gold and silver as the standard money of the country, but the question must remain In abeyance until conditions so change as to bring the public again face to face with falling prices and a rising dollar. This, therefore, cannot be made the controlling issue of the contest upon which we are entering. larpe navy, and to stand for the Independence of the Philippines, for im perialism is a menace, and against militarism, against the corrupting Influ ence of commercialism; and yet experience has shown that, however righteous the party's position on this subject, the Issue does not arouse the people as they can be aroused by a Question which touches them im mediately and individually. The injustice done to the Filipino is not re ceived as It should be, or as we resent a wrong to ourselves, and the costliness of Imperialism is hidden by the statistics and by our Indirect system of taxation. While the party must maintain Its position on this subject. It cannot present thla as the only Issue. Must Oppose a High Tariff. Missouri Goes Republican for First Time Since War.
