He said: "For the s<Tler of his vote, if he lie driven by want, or dire necessity, might have pity, but for the cold-blooded scoundrel who takes advantage of bis brother's necessity and deliberately relis ut him of his precious birth right, and makes the honor ot his American manhood a matter of bargain and sale in the one market, there should be nothing bt loathing, scorn and prison walls. ''We have passed through a period of purification and the ideals of our people were never higher than they are today, All we need is for every honest man hero after to stand unfalteringly for the right, "Then Delaware will cease to lie a den of thieves and tho home of political reprobates." •V Glasses for the Masses.

INHUMANITY DISPLAYED Would Have Done Credit to the Mon gol Hordes of Genghis Khan in His Conquests of China and Asia. TROOPS URGED ON THE MOBS During the Rioting tha Jews Wero Hunted Down by Ferocious Pursuers. Mm jews wer; torn to pieces Assoctnted Press Dispatch by Special Wires. Grodno, Russia, June 20.- Owing to the refusal ot tho censor at Hialystok to permit the free telegraphing of the result of the investigation by the Associated Press of the massacre of Jews there, its correspondent came here. The antl Jcwish rioting at Bialystok 1» ended. The troops are in full control, and, in view of the outcry raised, it is certain thst the authorities will not permit u renewal of the horrors recently witnessed at Bialy stok. This entire region is Ö excited, massacre was only the signal for u general attack on the Jews throughout this district amt in Poland, but, if tiny such conspiracy existed, it is too late to carry out the plana, as the most imperative ordere to prevent further outbreaks have been issued to the governors and governors gencral (mm Bt, Petersburg. When tho correspondent arrived at Bialystok, Sunday morning, the worst was over, but all on sides there was re tolling evidence of savage bestiality on the part of the blood-drunken mobs, which Hacked and burned tho Jewish houses, shop» and stores. For 72 hour», with a slight abatement during the «lay time, the mod orgie of blood and pillage went on unchecked. The inhumanity displayed would have done credit to the Mongol horde* of Genghis Khan in his conquest» of China and Central Asia early in tho Thirteenth Century. At first police and troops urged on the mob«, hut finally, when dismayed by the bloody floods accomplished, they reluctantly sought to obey the orders of their su periors to put an end to the work of the rapacious (muds of roughs, who were »0 far beyond tho control of the local force that regiment after regiment had to be thrown into the city before order could be restored. During the rioting the Jews »»ere hunted down by ferocious pursuers, who in tho majority of cases were not content with killing more victims, but tore them to pieces, (ike wild animals. And, while this was in progress, the troops either stood idly by or, ss was more frequently the case, fired into the houses ana shops here Jews were concealed, under tho pretext thhat they believed them to be revolutionist», but really to make way for the murderers anil plunderer», who followed in the soldiers' wake. While it is impossible to give the exact figures, the visits of the correspondent to the hospitals und cemeteries enable him to approximate the killed at 100 Jews and 20 Christians and tbs wounded at 150 Jews and seven ( Kristian*. The question of the origin of the mas sacre was carefully investigated. Although many of tho Jews denied that a bomb waa thrown ut the Corpus Christ! proces sion, Thursday, the fact dial a bomb was thrown is csiublishid Is-yond a doubt, but the question of who threw the bomb remains unsettled. The accounts of im partial witnesses, however, demonstrate that an insulting ery enraged the Jews, who attacked the religious procession. Next, from one end of the eity to the other, tho police spread the report of the attack, thus famung the religious fanati cism of Ilio Christians and setting loose the worst elements upon tho Jew», on whom the crowds watching the proces sion had already turned. Tho Jew» at first fought with revolvers and bombs, and with these weapons tho majority of the Christian victims wer» killed. But the Jews were soon overwhelmed and lied for shelter, liku rabbits to warrens, cellars or attics. Tho soldiers watched this chase and butchery, some times laughing with indifference, but never failing to fire into houses where Jews, sometimes to the number of a hundred, were making a stand Mainst their assailants. The soldiers said tha Jews were revolutionists, and that was their excuse for firing on them. The authorities who wanted to do something to stop the massacre were, with the police and troops, in open sympathy with the mobs and utterly powerless. Although it is freely charged that the higher authorities of Bialystok deliber ately organized the massacre, or, if this were not the case, that it was earned out under orders from St. Petersburg, there is no evidence to support cither charge according to the investigations of the Parliamentary Commission, whoso mem bers were especially anxious to elucidate this point M. Schepkin of Odessa, a mendier of the commission, saiil: "We wished especially to bring home the responsibility to the government, if the massacre were organized in St.Peters burg. But our conclusions ere that it was not planned in St. Petersburg. Neither do we find proof that Chief of Police Bhcrometieff of Bialystok was a party to the plot. However, the sponsibilitv of his subordinates, to gether with that of the rank and file of the |xtliee and some of the military officers, who fondly imagine that the odious system of von Plohve and Trepofl has not'ended, is clearly proven. v\e î have failed to clear up whether a police nvan or an anarchist threw thft bomb. Our investigations only demonstrate that the real cause of this and similar tragedies is the position of the Jews, which makes the ignorant Russians con siifi'r them to be pariahs, outside the pro f the law. Tbc Je«« overy socictics for tectum where arc now organizing self-defence, and as boon as they show the slightest resistance to persecution they will be treated by the troops and ignorant populace aa revolutionists, for whom a simple death is too good. Pare linmcnt must insist on tho punishment of the guilty." As proof of err wits preparedpn advance, the Jews,that claim the Weepers of the government wine shone received notice the day before the outbreak to remove their cosh from the slums to safer places. Tim talcs of atrocities committed are innumerable and, while some of them may he exaggerated, enough has been established to make almost anything credible. The mobs seemed to delight in torturing the victims. Stripe of flesh were cut from their bodice, and children were (matched from their mothers' arm» and taken by the legs and brained on the pavement liefern the eyes of tbeir paropts. An old Juw was beheaded, and the ghastly trophy was carried all day at the end of a pike through the streets. In the charge that the massa many cases the heads of victims were lieaten to a jelly with stones. At the Bialystok railroad station, where the mobs searched the trains for Jews, a rioter seised a A-years-oM girl liy the throat and held her at arm's length until she strangled to death. Little children seemed to take pleasure in pointing out the hiding places of Jews. Mutilated corpses, swarming with flies, were left lying about tho streets in some cases for days.
