SIX WERE DROWNED
PLEASURE LAUNCB COLLIDES WITH
A BARGE OFF N. J. COAST.
Captain Wince Undertook to Pass Be
tween Tug and Barge and Was
Struck by the Hawser and Knocked
Overboard —Launch Capsized and
Rolled Under Barge.
Beverly, N. J., Oct. 23.—A launch
containing nine men, all of Philadel
phia, collided with a barge in the Dela
ware river, off this place, resulting in
the drowning of six of the occupants
of the little boat. The other three
were rescued by the crew of the tug
boat Bristol, which was towing the
barge when the accident happened.
Those rescued are'.
Captain John Winch, owner of the
launch; W. F. Russell and J. Ruther
The dead are: William Winch, John
Ellis, John Stevenson, Samuel Herron,
Norman Delaney, James Yonkers.
The launch was hired by eight of
the men, most of whom lived in the
northeastern part of Philadelphia. The
elder Winch took his son along to as
sist him in running the boat. The day
was spent near Croyden, on the Penn
sylvania side of the river. The start
home was made late in the afternoon.
Opposite this place the launch met
the tug Bristol, in command of Cap
tain Mott, which was towing a barge
to Bordentown, N. J. Whether Cap
tain Winch saw the barge is not
known; nevertheless, he attempted to
cross the tug's stern. Cajitain Mott
hailed him and tried to prevent him
from doing so. Captain Winch was
standing at the wheel of the launch
as he went around the stern of the
tug. The hawser of the tug struck
him and knocked him overboard. Be
fore the captain's son or any other
member of the party could take the
wheel to steer the launch clear of the
barge, the latter struck the frail boat
amidship, capsizing it.
The launch rolled under the barge,
and its occupants went with it. Cap
tain Mott put the tug about and went
to the rescue. He and his crew threw
ropes and life preservers to the strug
gling men in the water, but they were
able to save only three of them. The
rescued men were landed here by the
tug and cared for at a hotel.
Captain Mott, assisted by several
residents of Beverly, went in search of
the bodies and were rewarded by find
ing three, but darkness put an end to
Yonkers, N. Y., Oct. 23. —Five per
sons, the body of one having been re
-covered, are believed to have been
drowned by the running down of a
catboat by a tug off South Yonkers.
Members of the South Hudson Boat
club heard cries for help out on the
river, and in the heavy mist that pre
vailed were able to make out the out
lines of a capsized sailboat and of a
tug that was running rapidly down the
river. The cries ceased before the
yachtsmen, who had put out to the
rescue in a rowboat, reached the cat
boat, which they found deserted and
with her side stove in. In a coat
aboard the boat they found a list of
nan ?s, which proved to be those of a
par . \. ho had gone sailing in the uoat.

of i :e ooat; his son Edward, Benjamin
Bensc.i, P. Simpson and Earl Thomp
son, r.il of South Yonkers. The body
of Benson was found not far from the
scene of the collision. Nothing has
been heard of the missing men.

TUNNEL <t0 FEET BELOW STREET.
Large Excavation Under New Chicago
Chicago.—The great tunnel under
the new postoffice has been completed,
and the two crews of miners who, for
the past 40 days, have be§n working
toward each other from opposite ends
of the bore, finished the work of ex

the most important and noteworthy
features of the Chicago subway, is 12

extends from Jackson boulevard to Ad

CHANGE POLICY ON PHILIPPINES.
President Takes First Step Toward
President Roosevelt's reference to
the Philippine question in his speech
at Atlanta, it is learned, indicates the
nature of legislation to be proposed by
his friends in congress this winter.
A bill is to come out of the ways and
means committee providing for the
free entry into this country of Philip
pine products, and also opening the
islands to investment. The restrictions
at present imposed are to be swept
Mr. Roosevelt's reference in his
speech to "unfortunate measures
which have seriously, in some respects
vitally, hampered the development of
he Philippines," marks his first step
away from the policy of "The Philip
-1 ines for the Filipinos."
He serves notice that the policy ex
cluding capital has failed. The Phil
ippines need capital, and there are
two ways of securing it. One is by
alternation of the tariff arrangement
which now levies a heavy burden upon
Philippine products exported to the
United States. Another is by remov
some of the restrictions which have
prvented the direct investment of capi
tal by individuals or corporations from
CUNLIFFE IS QUESTIONED.
Pinkerton Detectives Wild in Efforts
to Get Money.
Pittsburg, Oct. 2o. —Edward G. Cun
liffe, who committed the $101,000 theft
from the Adams Express company and
who was captured at Bridgeport, Conn,
is thoroughly exhausted. Upon his ar
rival from the east he was taken to
the local office of the Pinkerton agen
cy, where he was put through a pro
cess of sweating by the officials.
Notwithstanding the severe examin
ation given Cunliffe in the Pinkerton
offices, it is said no additional admis
sions were secured from him. The
prisoner was exceedingly aggravated
when he was told nearly $10,000 more
of the money was found wrapped in a
laundry package in Bridgeport. It is
believed he will remain stubborn about
the remaining $11,000 and will only re
veal its location when he is assured of
clemency by the courts.
PHONES THAT HE KILLED MAN.
Frank Womack Tells Salt Lake Po
lice of Fatal Affray.
Salt Lake, Utah, Oct. .23. —About
midnight Frank Womack, a freight
handler at the Oregon Short Line de
pot, formerly of Weiser, Idaho, called
the police station by telephone'and an
nounced that he shot and killed Joseph
Mathews, formerly a fireman on the
Short Line, and more recently an em
ploye of the city water department.
Womack roomed at Mathews' house.
Witnesses say that Mathews said be
fore the shooting that he was going to
put Womack out because of the lat
ter's attentions to his wife. He forced
Womack to get up out of bed and had
begun to beat him, when Womack
fired three times.
Recover the Stolen Jewels.
Victoria, B. C.—The $6000 worth of
diamonds and emeralds set in 47 rings
which were stolen from C. E. Red
fern's jewelry store, were recovered
at Vancouver, where they had been
hidden by the persons who took them
from the store. Harry Redfern, son
of the proprietor of the store, his
cousin, C. Kurtz, and a woman from
Vancouver are said to have been in
the store at a late hour on the night
the jewels were taken. Kurtz, it is
stated, accompanied Detective Palmer
to Vancouver when the jewels were
recovered. It is improbable that there
will be any prosecutions.
Moscow Land Fraud.
Moscow, Idaho, Oct. 24. —The land
fraud cases against Kettenbach, Kes

were called in the United States court
Monday, and Attorney Borah requested
that the cases be passed until 2 o'clock
Tuesday afternoon. The request was
granted, and the defendants, who were
seated in the audience, soon retired
from the room.
The most interesting feature of these
cases centers around the close and
secret manner in which the jury venire
is being guarded by the officials.
Germany Increases Navy.
The German government will not
propose to the reichstag an increase

Recent incidents in German-British re

the government's naval policy except
that unusually heavy outlays will be
asked for the equipment of naval sta

Under ordinary circumstances the

"Ann La Mont" is described as a
problem play in four acts with localesi
in New York, London and Hawaii, the
latter providing the most dramatic cli
max of the play. Ann is a struggling
young artist in New York. She is a
girl of temperament, breeding and ed
ucation but at war with the conven
tions. Leon Richmond, a fellow ar
tist and successful illustrator, has a
studio in which Ann has worked from
his models, being too poor to rent a
studio of her own. The two are often
thrown alone, and the author puts it
in a line, "Seclusion from the eyes of
the world has ever stupified the con
science." Richmond has been in Eu

She writes Richmond, attempting to

JERRY SIMPSON DIES

Mr. Simpson Was Conscious to the

Was a Populist, Known as "Sockless
Wichita, Oct. 24.—Former Congress
man Jerry Simpson died Monday morn
ing from aneurism of the aorta.
Mr. Simpson was conscious up to
five minutes before death. The end
came without a struggle. He had been
hovering between life and death for
10 days. At the bedside were Mrs.
Simpson and their only child, Lester
Simpson, of Roswell, N. H.
The funeral will be held in this city
Wednesday at Scottish Rite temple.
The blue lodge of Medicine Lodge,

the cause of death was aneurism of the

His legislative accomplishments con
sisted in turning popular eastern senti
ment regarding populism from scorn
ing ridicule to respectful consideration
during his service of six years in the
Fifty-second, Fifty-third and Fifty-fifth
congresses, when he was swept out by
another Kansas wave. There was not
a question of congressional action dur
ing that time on which Jerry Simpson
did not think and on which his conclu
sions were not strikingly and entirely
different from those of any one else.
His language and manner of speech
were quaint in the highest degree, Jer
ry Simpson always tried to make his
adversaries look ridiculous, always
threw new light on every subject, made
a personal friend of every member of
the house and, his political opponents
declared, never changed a vote on any
lestion. As an entertainer and as a
personality the house came to have the
warmest regard for him.
