Yesterday morning between 9:00 and I) -.;() the body ''of Miss Ida E. Peltz. sister of John E. Peltz, the well known merchant lailor, was found floating in Glen Miller lake at the southern end near the foot bridge. The discovery was made by two ladies who were driving about the park and they at once notified Park Policeman Fossenkemper. lie, with the, assistance of one of the workmen employed in the park, pull ed the body out of the water. Su perintendent Gormou, John E. Peltz and Coroner Markley were at once summoned and an inquest held. A suicidal verdict, was rendered bv the coroner. Miss .Pelt z was fifty years of age and for a number of years has been in very poor health. The family no ticed some time ago that her mind was unbalanced. About two weeks ago she was taken from St. Ste phen's Hospital where she had been undergoing treatment for a nervous trouble. Since then she has been living at her home, 129 South Tenth street and has been under the care of a nurse. It has been her custom since her discharge from the hospi tal to take long walks every morn ing and as usual yesterday morning she started out on an east bound street car which left Eighth and Main streets at 8:30 and arrived at Glen Miller at S:4.. When the body was -found the motorman in charge of this car testified to the coroner that the dead woman was the only passenger on his car, recognizing her from the clothes she wore. He also said that when she left the car and started down the board walk to the j steps she hesitated and then turned j back as though she wished to board j the car again, after a minute's hesi- I i tation she turned again and walked down the steps toward the lake. The place where Miss Peltz enter ed the water was directly under the little foot bridge at the southern end of the lake near the water falls. It is evident that she choose this place because it obscured her from vitw of passers-by, Before enter ing the water she removed her coat, hat. belt and overskirt, placed them together on the bank and then put her pocket book on top of them all. The ladies who made the discovery of the floater said-that at first they thought the object in the water was a large bundle of clothes, but on (Continued on Page Five.) RICHMOND DAILY PALLADIUM, FRIDAY JOHNSON AND GARMAGK ADDRESSED A LARGE CROWD AT THE NEW PHILLIPS THE- PROTECTIVE TARIFF Is All -Wrong Says the Man Who Taught the Theory for Many Years. One of the largest Democratic meetings of the year was held at the New Phillips opera house last night, when the gathering, was addressed by Senator Carmack, of Tennessee. The senator did not waver a bit from the well beaten track of his predecessors unless it was in his at tack on Theodore Roosevelt, the president of the United States. His unwarranted attack on the president v was one of the basest which has been made here this year. He also introduced an innovation by bring ing the name of the Lord Almighty into the campaign. According to his theory the Lord Almighty is respon - sible for all of the defeats and,, all j of the successes of the Republican party.. He said: "God is responsi ble for the change in the silver situ ation, not the Republican party." The senator set a new price on the cost of the 'Philippines and said that the islands had cost the United States 700.000.000 and that 200, 000,000 a year was to be spent' on them by' the Republican part'. Mr. Carmack thought that the -tariff question was the ptipcipab issue and when lie was not narranguemg tne i president lie would talk on the tar iff question. His favorite expres sion in addressing his audience was "You un terrified yoemanery of In diana." Not much allusion to eith er one of the national candidates for the high offices on the Democratic ticket Avas made with the exception of the following: "The candidacy of that grand old Democrat Gassaway Davis, of West Virginia, on the Democratic ticket will heal the only remaining breach in the soHd vote of the South." Mr. Carmack men tioned ihe name of Bryan several times and each time the house was wild with applause. He claimed that the Republican party Was blackmail ing the trusts with the assistance of Mr. Cortelyou. "Teddy is the Re publican party," said the senator "and von can not tell anv more what the Republican party is going to do because no one knows what Teddy is going to do." Henry V. Johnson followed Mr. Carmack and gave a lengthy speech on the tariff question. lie said: "When I voted for the Dingly bill in ihe United States congress I did not think that the bill was the pro per thing for my countrymen and I do not think so now. When I came out of the congress I came out a free man, I came out with the idea that protective tariff was wrong and that I should oppose it rather than pro tect it". Mr. Johnson made an earn est appeal to the young men and urged them not to follow a party, but to work for the good of their country ami to study and read the (Continued on fifth page.)

At the Coliseum last evening a crowd of two thousand negroes and white people gathered to hear Prof. W. T. Vernon, of Kansas, speak in behalf of the Republican party, but Professor Vernon failed to put in an appearance, owing to a previous engagement for the same evening, which the Republican State Com mittee was unaware of. The big crowd, however, was not disappoint ed as the two men whom the com mittee furnished at the eleventh hour, L. W. Manaway, of Jackson, Miss., chairman of the board of di rectors of the Lincoln Savings Bank in that city, and one of the most inllueiitial negroes of the South, and fjurfey Brewer, of Indianapolis, edi tor of the Indianapolis World, gave two addresses that Avorked the big crowd up to a wild pitch of enthusi asm. .-These 'two eloquent colored men were introduced by tieorgo W. Conrad, of this city, who also' made j a short address. Mr. Mijnway was the first speaker : and he made an earnest pbia for the! election of President Roosevelt. The speaj?rftra$ wildly cheered when he j made the statement: "They tell me i that the negroes will sell their votes, j i- .,i . i ion can t snow me a man in ims an- i dieneo that will. If they do they should be disfranchised and their homes burned to the ground." In conclusion Mr. Manway said: "As sure as the sun rises over the rocky Maine coast and sets in the golden Pacific, Theodore Roosevelt will be elected on November S. " Gurley Brewer was next intro duced and with his first breath set the crowd howling and laughing by the vitrolic remark that: "If Mr. I Manway had nothing to say against j Tillman, I have and I am going to give him hell." and he did.- The arch enemy of the negro race Avas ripped open and spread broadcast. Mr. Brewer is one of the most for cible talkers ever heard in Rich mond, and when he occasionally threatened to , stop the . audience would yell: "Don't stop," "keep it up, we are Aviih you." In conclusion Mr. BreAver called upon '-every col ored voter to stand up and be then had them repeat the folloAving, which was done Avith enthusiasm: "I sol emnly swear that on . Nov. S I will vote the Republican ticket, irrespec tive of Avho the candidates are, and vote it rain or shine. The swear ing could be heard so far down j Main street as to be almost audible to H. U. Johnson. Avho was attend ing a Democratic meeting at the New Phillips opera house.
