DEFENDS xMEN WHO ARE UNDER FIRE & : "Otica. N. T., Oct. 27. This is Theodore Roosevelt's 52ud birthday anniversary. He cele brated it by doing an extra hard day's campaigning'. He reached Utica early today and after a short stop there, the colonel started out on a circuit -which included speeches at Fonds, Gloversville, Amsterdam, Little Falls and Herkimer, -with a meeting at Utica tonight. ' ' ! Oswego, X. Y., Oct. 27. Judge Alton B. Parker, beaten by Roosevelt for the presidency five years ago, is "saying things" about the victor in the state campaign. He says Roosevelt is not sticking to the truth in his campaign talk- Speaking here last night he said: "This is what our colonel says: 'Now, one of the honest men of "Wall street has sent me a letter and In it he has put one of the circulars sent ' out by Tammany Hall to the Wall street ticker crowd. The circular says that this campaign more than any other will affect the business of the fiancial Interests and every "Wall street man ought to give it serious thought.' "Observe in passing, that the colonel admits that there is one honest man in "Wall street. So that will make two honest men in this state that this cam paign has thus far developed. Pos sibly, -with accustomed modesty, he told you when here toaay who the otner one -was. "The colonel is unusually disturbed. He -would make a legitimate appeal for the funds needed for the legitimate ex penditures of a campaign the issue of the hour,' a vital issue, as he puts It No. that won't do. Nobody will take tinat seriously. Everybody f knows j by this time that the Democratic party In this fight stands for tranquility and business peace and is opposed to the -wild doctrines of Roosevelt, which would unsettle values, disturb business and renew the panic from -which the country jsufferecULnlils administration' Speaking of the charge that Mr. Dix, Democratic candidate for governor, was connected with the "Wall paper trust," Judge Parker said: "Mr. Dix asks for an apology from his detractor. Will, lie get it? No. The colonel -will continue to steal away the good name of Mr. Dix. He will con tinue to tell you not to steal. This 'big Roosevelt doctrine resalves itself into this, "don't do as I do. but do as I toll vnu. "The king can do no wrong.' Ts this waging a decent campaign for 1 decency? "With that same disregard for fact, the colonel has declared that the Dem ocratic party of Connecticut has nom inated for governor a former judge Simon E. Baldwin ), who was a, man who took the view tnat it was. compe tent for the workman to acecpt any employment, to bind himself not to be compensated -if he lost his life or limb in that occupation. "The colonel would also steal judge Baldwin's good name away from him and the courts may be invoked to pre serve to the judge what is his own. "Is this waging a decent campaign for decency? Let me commend to Mr. Roosevelt's serious consideration a single thought: 'Thou shalt not steal,' was only one command that was tnundered from the Mount. There was another just as plain, just as clear, Inst as emphatic which was tins: 'Thou shalt not bear against thy neighbor.' " false witness CHILDREN SEE THEIR FATHER SHOT TO DEATH. Waxanachie, Texas, Oct. 27. H- A. Ratterree, who, it is charged, shot and killed Charles H. Boggs last night in Ennis, was jailed here today. He will be given an examining trial at Ennis Saturday. Boggs was accompanied by his two small children when he was shot, four bulltts taking effect in his body. Family com plications it is said led to the shooting. WHOLE BLOCK BURNS IN VICTORIA, B. C. Victoria, B. C, Oct. 27. Fire last night swept through the business sec tion of this city, wiping out several of the finestb uildings and inflicting a loss estimated at from 1,500,000 to 2,000,000. Fire brands swept over the "water front and it was with the greatest dif ficulty that the firemen, aided by the militia and garrison of Work Point barracks, kept the flames from sweep ing a broad path to the water's edge. Several pleasure yachts in the harbor caught fire and were destroyed. The fire started in the department store of David Spencer & Co., and spread with great rapidity. The Times office and the Five Sisters building, the latter a five story office block, -were destroyed. The Driard hotel "was considerably damaged and the guests turned into the streets. A number of firemen were badly .hurt by the falling -walls. The block in which the fire broke iut is bounded by Government, Fort id Broad streets and Trounce alley." KING- IS NOT A NATIVE GRECIAN Berlin, Germany, Oct. 27. A per sistent rumor in financial circles says that a revolution has broken out at Athens, Greece. Telegraphic inquiries sent to the Grecian capital this after noon have elicited no 'response. About a year ago, -led by a lieutenant of the navy, there was a short re volt in which a navy yard arsenal was captured and several warships taken and held for several days, but the re volt was finally suppressed. There has been much ill feeling in Athens recently against the national assembly, culminating in the dissolu tion of that body Tuesday. The rem bly was especially elected for the pur pose of revising the constitution. A new revisionist chamber is to be elected November 2S. The king of Greece is not a native, but is a Dane, being brother .of the queen mother of Great Britain. He is said to be very democratic, but he has not proved capable of holding the loy alty of his subjects and has often been threatened with dethronement since he took the crown, November 2, 1863, but has held on until few monarchs have a record of continuous service longer than himself. The nation is very poor and the king is said to have to economize a great deal to make both ends meet at the palace. He dresses plainly and travels among liis subjects and sips coffee in their cafes in a most democratic manner, often attired in threadbare garments. SEATTLE MAN IS FILIPINO VICTIM Man Murdered in Uprising of Natives Managed a Plantation. Seattle, Wash.. Oct. 27. Earl V. Geer, who was killed in the uprising on the Mindanao island, Philippines, left Seattle for the Philippines last December under a five year contract to manage a plantation for the Seattle-Manila Plantation company, most of the stock of which is owned by local capitalists?- -- -..: -.-o. - Geer was married shortly before leaving Seattle and took his bride with him. He formerly conducted a photo graph gallery here. He was 26 years old. T-m r t i 4- An.v4-c mi A a f"P ?! rmra f ajj. iccciii icw.c a.icx.u. tv y..,.) i of the company here. Geer said that he was having trouble -with the natives, but did not look for a disturbance of a serious nature. Dispatches from Washington say that no particular significance is at tached to the uprising, as a battalion of constabulary and a company of the 29th infantry lately from El Paso, Texas are stationed in Davao. Rein forcements are scattered nearby. CRIPPEX'S EXECUTION 3IAY BE DELAYED. London, England, Oct. 27. Solicitor Newton today entered an appeal in the court of crimi nal appeals in the case of Dr. Hawley Crippen, sentenced to death November 8. The hearing will be expedited, although it may be necessary to postpone the execution. When religious consolation was offered, Dr. Crippen de clined it with the remark that he was more interested in get ting his rights man listening to a pries i- IJnless the home secrrvary recommends to the erotvn that he be reprieved, Dr. Oippen will be hange-i in I'entonj11e prison on November S. V Yi ITALIAN KILLED WHILE MANEUVERING IN BIPLANE. Rome, Italy, Oct. 27. "Lieut. Saglietti fell with -a mii-cary biplane in which he wa ma neuvering today and was in stantly killed. The burned section lies about two blocks from the handsome Empress ho tel on the opposite side, of the same street "which the Empress faces, about three blocks from the parliament build ings. It is just above the federal postoffice and telegraph station, and the Victoria hotel on the same side of the street, and in its rear, on the wa ter front, and many warehouses, all of whicli suffered, in addition to the boats in the bay. It is almost directly op posite the docks where the steamers all land, and about 200 yards across the water from the landing place. The David Spencer store, where the fire started, was the biggest concern in the city. Victoria is the principal city of the island of Victoria and the capital o British Columbia. It is midway be tween Seattle and Vancouver by wa ter and is a great visiting place for tourists to the northwest. Many Americans were in Hotel Driard and lost all their belongings. It is four and a half hours' ride by water from here to Seattle. - - f . . HARD TIME IN SEVERE WEATHER Chicoutimi, Que., Oct. 27. Alan Haw ley and Augustus Post, who made a new balloon record by traveling 1355 miles from St. Louis, the starting point of the international balloon race, reached here at 10 oclock last night after three days and nights spent in fighting their way through the path less forest of northern Quebec, a long canoe journey and a drive of 40 miles from St. Ambroise. This morning they took the train for Quebec. In spite of the hardships they had undergone, botff are feeling well and are elated over the result of their long journey. But both agreed that the most welcome sight in all Chicoutimi upon arrival was the bathtub in their room at the hotel. Their balloon, the America II-, is still on "the side of an unnamed moun tain near Lake Du Banc Du Cable. Joseph Pednaud and Joseph SImard, two trappers who brought the balloon Ists in a bark canoe to St. Ambroise, will go back and see what can be done to get the big balloon to the rail road here. This will not be an easy task. Hawley and Post landed 46 hours after their departure from St. Louis. They probably flew in all about 1600 miles, although the direct distance to the point of landing Is only 1350. New Tork, Oct. 27. A grand wel come home is being planned for the two balloonists when they reach New York Monday or Tuesday. Courtlandt Field Bishop, president of the Aero club, of America, says it will be the largest celebration of its kind the country has ever seen. All American and foreign aviators now in that city will remain to take part in the cele bration. An Arduous Trip. Showing plentiful marks of an ardu ous week of struggling through the wilderness, Hawley and Post reached this city last evening, safe, after caus-" ing uneasiness for several days. They landed at 345 Wednesday af ternoon, October 19, 1500 feet up on the face of an unnamed mountain;" which as nearly as they could reckon, lies about 53 miles north of Chicou timi and about eight miles north of lake Tshishagama. They had been m- i volved in a snowstorm, accompanied . Vi on !n -flirt. Tinri tn f in nr northerly direction from that which had previously bade fair to carry them to the Labrador coast. The adverse j condition compelled them to land, much against their -wishes. Landing was ef- fected easily and the balloon was left In good condition, they say. They -were uncomfortably near the end of their provisions, and for three nights they were obliged to stop in the 'open air. It was a stiff fight through snowy forests. The weather was exceedingly cold. Then the camp of a trapper was struck on the river Alours, and a day's rest was enjoyed in the hut. Again five trappers; ap peared and took them down the streams in their canoes to .St. Am broise, a Jittle settlement 40 miles from here. O six hour drive brought them here last niglt. Tonight they expect i to be in Quebec. According to their reckoning they covered 1450 miles in the air during the 4G hours they were up. Mr. Post, acting as spokesman, told the story of the trip last night. Story of tUe Trip. "We ihad a great trip," said Post. "We crossed Jake Michigan and lake Huron and followed -what I should judge to be the proposed route of the Georgian bay canal and if you as"k me, there is water enough In that section of the country not only to suit the canal, but to float all the ships in the world. "Then we crossed the Ottawa and floated over the forests of northern Quebec, passing over innumerable lakes and rivers. The country below us always was densely wooded. Finally on Wednesday morning we found that we were north of lake St. John and going well and we had hopes that we would be able to continue the trip to the Labrador coast. "Unfortunately about C oclock Wed nesday afternoon, the 19th, a storm came up and it became necessary to make a landing. "Next morning we started for civili zation, heading south. We had three days of strenuous exercise with no more to eat than was absolutely neces sary, as we had to carry all our food as well as the blankets to cover us at j night. And we needed tnose blankets badly, for we had two snowstorms on the way. "As nea.r as we can figure our land ing place was about 5S miles north of Chicoutimi." Mr. Post did not appear to be greatly excited over his experiences and showed much more interest in the fate of Walter Wellman, Inquiring eagerly as to how he had got on in his at tempt to cross the Atlantic. He was disappointed that the attempt had proved a failure. New Balloon Record. The new record established by Haw ley and Post unofficially and estimated at 1350 miles, exceeds all previous flights. Only this 5ear count Oden soff, of Russia, claimed to have flown 1324 miles in 40 hours, but the. fig ures were not officially verified. If the estimated distances are made offi cial the long standing record of count De La Vaulx for 1193 miles, made In 1900 in a flight from France to Si beria, has been broken by at least fhree of the contestants in the recent race the America IL, the Dusseldorf H. and the Germania.
