The platform sajs in part
The Republicans of New York City
sinking all partisan advantage in the wel
fare of the community meet in their
municipal convention as citizens and pa i
triots presenting to the voters the broad
proposition of a municipal ticket for hon
st Intelligent economic business like
and non partisan government IVe ar
raign Tammany Hall as a band of coi
splrators against the public welfare as an
organization devoted to public plunder
whose office holders in the conduct cf the
public business to use the language of
their chief are working for their pockets
all the time
In the name of our candidates we
promise that if they are elected the black
mail iniquity which is the foulest dis
grace of Tammany government shall be
rendered impossible by the complete re
organization of the police department
The one issue in this campaign is an
upright administration of municipal af
fairs conceived and executed solcls for
the benefit of the people It is the Issue
of common honest- It Is the fight of
good citizenship against bad selfish and
careless citizenship It is an issue that
must abide and a light that must be kept
up until the Tammanv idea of govern
ment has been uprooted and destrojed
The Republican convention was marked
throughout by unanimity From ail sides
of the great assembly hall of the Grand
Central Palace which was packed with
delegates and spectators there came
cheers and applause at every mention of
the name at the head of the ticket and
the other names were as well received
Not one delegate but showed by his de
meanor that the ticket was absolutely
satHfactorv to him and that he had a
firm belief that it would be successful
on election day
The Citizens Union convention was
almost as enthusiastic Cooper Union
was packed to its doors by the delegates

lutely harmonious when it came down to

Reform Union of Manhattan are em
braced in the German American Union
organized by Herman Rldder to form a
new anti Tammanj combination as a
substitute for the German American

NEW YORK Sept 24 The sachts Co
lumbia and Shamrock II vvMch are to en

Cup on Ihurtda were measured In the
Erie Basin toJa bs John 11 slop meas
urer of the New Sork Yacht Club and
It was officially announced as a result of
his measuring tint the Shamrock will
have to allow 43 seconds tlmp to the Co
This was a big surprise to eversone
It was expected b all tliit tho Shamrock
on account of her 1 ig spars would have
to allow much more time than this and
some had figured that It would be more
than a minute and a half The Shamrock
carries much more sail than the Colum
bia but Mr Watson has taken overs ad
vantage of the rules of measurement of
the New York Yacht Club and he has
gained very nnch for the challenger by
The water line length of thd Shamrock
is 0 52 foot shorter than that of the
Columbia The Columbias load water
line is i9 77 feet and the Shamrock IPs
tS 23 feet Shamrocks mast is S 5 feet
lonter than that of the Columbias and
ns this puts her topsail a long way above
the Columbias It Is thought that the
Shamrock will be particularly dangerous
in very light weather when on account
of the height of her sails she will catch
airs that will pass over the Columbia
From the end of the boom to the end
of the bowsprit the Shamrock Is 1 1C feet
longer than the Columbia but her boom
Is shorter than that of the American boat
Both boats were measured with flfts
tvvo men on board The difference in the
sailing length of the two beats Is 1433
feet This computed on the time allow
ance of the New York Yacht Club gives
an allowance of 43 seconds tei the Colum
bia in a thlrts mile rice When the re
sults of the measurement of the Colum
bia and Shamrock II were told to Sir
Thomas Llpton in the Erie Basin he could
scared conceal his Jos
Wo thought he said that the Sham
rock would have to concede far more
time All hands now believe that our
chances are getting belter all the time
for lifting that cup Mr Watson has
shown his talent in this 1 do not pre
tend to enter into tho mathematics of
the sport but I will say that the result of
the calculations has been very gratifying
All of the crew of the Shamrock now
believe that our victor is certain Of
course 1 hope that we shall win but 1

to express an opinion He said the two
sachts had a striking resi mblat ce so far
as their underbodies were concerned
There was much of discussion among
the experts this morning as to Ahttlur
any advantage would accrue to the
Shamrock from the unpaintcd tupsides
Mr Duncan said that tt might prove a
good scheme

of the time tomorrow InJJew York shop
ping The ladles of tho village would very
much like to show the high esteem in
wheh Mrs Roosevelt is held by them bv
giving some sort of a demonstration of
farewell to her at the depot but in view
of the sad events of the last few weeks
the Idea will not be carried out
The departure from Osster Bay of Mr
and Mrs Roosevelt even temporarily Is
very much deplored by the entire village
In a quiet modest wa Mrs Roosevelt has
endeared herself to the people bs many
kindly acts and President Roosevelt lias
alwass treated his fellow townsmen In a
chivalrous generous manner
The Roosevelt home at Sagamore Hill
will be left In charge of servants
gesz for the assassination of President
McKlnley Eight hours and twent llvc
minutes was the actual time occupied
by the trial of the case and the delibera
tions and return of the Jury Eighteen
tlas had elapsed from the shooting of
the President and on Thursday ten da8
and fourteen hours after his death the
assassin will be sentenced
No witnesses were sworn for the de
fence fot n vvoru of evidence was be
fore the court as to the sanity of the
prisoner The alienists who examined
him were not called The court Instruct
ed the Jur that the proof of insanity is
with the defendant that a man must be
presumed to be sane unless proven in
sane To the assassin was offered the
opportunity to go on the stand but he
only shook his head when his lawyers
asked him He did not trust himself to
The unconcerned murderer of sestcr
Iday had changed His color had turned
from white to seilow His hands shook
He curtained his eyes with the lids and
sat with his head hanging on his should
er a nervous perspiration oozing out on
his face and hands In remaining mute
throughout the assassin found a way to
hold his composure but this afternoon In
court he was a most miserable picture
No bravado no courage no defiance of
death nor the glorification of the an
archist who did his duty Just a cur
llko collapse
He will be dragged to the death chair
howling with terror said Chief of De
tectives Cusack who has studied him
since his arrest And the fear that was
written all over the assassin tonight
seemed to verify the predicion
While Justice White was delivering his
charge to the Jury the sky seemed sud
denly to grow dark Clouds blew up from
the lake and rain threatened Czolgosz
glanced fearfully at the twelve men
standing in their places listening to the
solemn words of the court He signed for
water and the detective brought him a
glass He gulped at it handed back the
glass and dropped his eyelids again
All day he sat with ces almost closed
as if he would shut out the scene From
time to time he would plunge his left
hand Into his coat pocket bring out his
handkerchief anjLTnop his face He
opened his eyes cirrttewlde when the judge
turned from thefVury and the tramp of
feet told him thatAhe jurors were to re-
L tire It was nlnrmlnutes to K Everyone
looked at the cleric so that he might time
the deliberations of the Jury Czolgosz
looked too
The Jur Retires
Between the two lines of tipstaves the
jurors walked to thelrconsulting room
The door closed behind them Justice
White left the bench and the rumble of
conversation started Many In the body
of the court rodm who had had no oppor
tunits to see the face of the prisoner came
forward and vlcwejl him Judge Lewis of
his defence felt so Utile concern for the
man ho had defended that be departed
to catch his traitHto his summer home
leaving Judge TitUs to take care of the
Interests of the prisoner
The Jury was out longer than anyone
expected in fact thirty four minutes
This was afterward explained The
Jurors wanted to maintain the majesty
of the law as it has been preserved
throughout the trial Justice White re
turned to the court room at 421 having
been notified by the sheriff that the Jury
had arrived at a verdict Four minutes
later into the hushed court room came
the jury with Henry W Wendt at its
head The roll of his jurors was called
Have jou agreed upon a verdict
asked the clerkj
We hav e said Mr Wendt rising and
as he arose the others stood up
Gentlemen of the jurs what is jour
verdict asked the clerk
Guilts of murder in the first degree
as charged in the Indictment was the
Crowding down his emotions his eses
closed his hands twitching Czolgosz
hcara the verdict He had not been
nsked to stand He was almost lsing In
his chair The spectator- too received
the verdict without demonstration Even
In this respect this trial will stand as an
example of American Justice
Tho district attorney enquired when the

planation after the conclusion of the trial
He said the Insanity experts had not been
called because there was no need of them
The defence had not attempted to set up

bat All the alienists were agreed that
the assassin was of clear mind and later
they might Join in a statement to that

vened there was a delay of ten minutes
waiting for the district attorney who
was in consultation at his office with his
assistants W B Hornblowcr of New
York entered court and took a seat be
side the attornes for the prisoner A
little later Gen Joe Wheeler tiptoed into
court He was lot recognized by the
attendants and after tnking a look at
the assassin left the room
During this lull one of the incidents of
the trill took place Judge Lewis leaned
back in his chair and spoke to Czolgosz
The assassin leaned forward in his chair
nnd listened to the whispered words of
his counsel The whole court leaned for
ward at tho same time for it was the
first communication between the assassin
nnd his attorne3 since the opening of
the trial Judge Lewis had asked Czolgosz
If lie wanted to take the stand Czolgosz
slowly dropped back In his chair and
shook his head He pulled out the hand
kerchief again and mopped his face with
AkIc1 to Take the Stand
Judge Lewis talked with Judge Titus
nnd again whispered to Czolgosz Again
the assassin stooped forward listened in
tently and slowly fell back in his chain
once more shaking his head It was all
he could do to hold himself together w hit
silent The assassin feared a complete
breakdown if he undertook to speak and
he did not care to tako tho stand He
was content to let himself slip to his fate
Twitching of his hands and the beads
of sweat on his forehead were the signs
of his emotions He hid his eyes beneath

James F Vallely sergeant of detectives
in New York City assigned to tho Tan
American Exposition was the first wit
ness after recess He told of taking
Czolgosz to police hendquarfrs
Q Did jou offer him any Immunity

Superintendent Bull was the last wit
ness His testimony was along the lines of
that of Quackenbush Colgosz had told
him he had attended meetings in different
places heard various people talk upon
the subject of anarchy and he believed
what he had heard and what had been
told and believed that he was right
Did he say who he had heard
lecture A He had heard Emma Gold
man talk he had heard well there were
some other names I think a man by tho
name something like Zolosman a Polish
man a man who edited a paper in Cleve
land and a number of other speakers
Those names were the ones I remember
best He also knew a man In Chicago
named Izaak who published a paper

talked with this man upon the subject
and had read his paper He told me that
he maile a special trip to Cleveland at
one time to buy a paper that was pub

did not believe in our form of govern
ment he believed only in the government
as taught by the anarchists He had no
liellef In church He had been a Roman
Catholic but had had nothing to do with
the church in some time because he did
not believe its teachings He did not be
lieve in marriage

lawser he was asked if he had any
friends he would like to see if he wished
to see his father or his mother
Q What did he sar to the question
about a lawyer
A He said he did not wish to see a
lawer did not need a lawser that he
had no friends and did not care to see
his father or mother
To the surprise of many in theaudi
ence who expected the insanity experts to
be- sworn the district attorney turned
quietly to the court when Superintendent
Bull left the stand and said
The people rest
The buzz of half suppressed conversa
tion in the court caused Czolgosz to loor
up A moment before he had taken a
drink of water offered to him by JSe
tective Geary and had gulped down half
of It nervously He dropped his eyelids
again as Judge Lewis rose and addressed
the court He oaid
If sour honor please the defendant
has no witnesses that he will eallrso that
ther testimony la closed at theJdorihe
testimony ot the people We S some
what embarrassed disappointed in tho
peoples testimony- closing at this point
My associate and myself have not had
very much consultation as to the courso
to be pursued but from the slight con
versation that we have had we are in
clined to ask jour honor to permit each
of us both of us to make some remarks
to the jury In summing up this case
The will be on my part -very brief and
I presume so on the part of my asso
Sir Lewis Address
Mr Lewis then addressed the jury as
This being the first time In over twen
ts Sears that I have had occasion to ad
dress a Jury as counsel In a case 3011
may imagine that I feel somewhat in a
strange position especially in a case of
the importance of this A great calamity
has befallen our nation The President of
the country has been stricken down and
died in our city It is shown beyond any
peradventure of doubt that it was at tho
defendants hand that he was stricken
down and the only question that can lio
discussed or considered in this case is ha
question whether that action was that of
a sane person
irit was then the defendant is guilty
of the murder and must suffer the pen
alts If I was the act of an insane man
then he is not guilty of murder but
shcuid be acquitted of that charge nnd
would then be confined in a lunatic asy
lum Much talk has occurred and has
been called to my attention as to tho
propriety of anv defence being Interposed
in this case Many letters have been re
ceived by me since I was assigned with
my associate to defend this man ques
tioning tho propriety of a defence being
attempted 1ou gentlemen know per
haps how Judge Titus and msself came
into this case The position was not
sought by us but we appear here In
of a duts which we think de
volved upon us notwithstanding it was
an exceedlnglS unpleasant one
v nu cpntlemen are sittinir here as
Jurors because sou were commanded to
appear here and under our ssstem ot
Jurisprudence it was sour duts to sit
here and hear the testimony in this ca o
and nerform the unpleasant duts of de
termining whether this man Is to lie ex
ecuted cr whether he is to be acquitted
The defendants counsel when thes Ins
came members of thi legal profession
became members of the court nnd as I
understand if thes arbitrarils refuse to
perform the duts which the court imposes
upon them they are guilt of n misde
meanor and liable to be punished ty tho
court So that OU see gentlemen If
any simple minded thoughtless man
should entertain th notion for 11 momw
that the counsel who arpear in this ear
are doing something they ought not to
do that person is laboring under a very
serious misapprehension as to the duties
devolving upon a tawer
defendant no m ttter how enormous
the crime that he may have committed
is under our laws entitled to the ben lit
of a trial There are In our community
individuals not I hope In very large
numbers but we know- thev are scatter
ed all over our country who think that
in a case like this or even In cliarges ot
much less enormity that It Is entirely
proper that the case should be disposed
of by lvnch law bv mob law and wn
can hardly take up a paper wlthiut learn
ing that in some part of this free coun
try a man has been mobbed upon the
suspicion or belief that he was guity
of some crime
It is charged here that our client Is
an anarchist a man who does not be
lieve In any law or In nnv form of xu
ernment and there are as we are told
individuals who entertain that oplnirn
societies which entertain the same opin
ion We all feel that such doctrines lire
dingerous are criminal are the dec
trins that will sulnert our Govnnment
In time If thes are allowed to pievall
But gentlemen of the jurs vvhle I firm
ly believe In that I do not be lev o tint
it amounts In danger to this country
equal to the belief thit Is lieeomne sr
common l U men who are charsed with
rime sh not be permitted lo go
through the form ot a trial In n court
of Justice but that Iv nch law slimilil take
the place of the calm and dlgnilied ad
ministration of law in our courts
Whn that doctrine becomes i urllrlently
prevalent In this country if it ever does
