"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
"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

sibly, -with accustomed modesty, he
told you when here toaay who the otner

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

this, "don't do as I do. but do as I

"With that same disregard for fact,
the colonel has declared that the Dem

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

H- A. Ratterree, who, it is
charged, shot and killed Charles
H. Boggs last night in Ennis,

be given an examining trial at

Several pleasure yachts in the harbor
caught fire and were destroyed.
The fire started in the department

spread with great rapidity. The Times

the latter a five story office block,

considerably damaged and the guests

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.

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

canoe journey and a drive of 40 miles
from St. Ambroise.
This morning they took the train for
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

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
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

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
"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
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
