JONES Former Senator Believes the Pop ulists Are Being Supplied With Campaign Funds Outside Their Own Organization and Says the Re publicans Are the Chief Benefi ciaries of the Watsonites' Work Special to The Globe NEW YORK, Sept. 17.—"The Pop ulist movement this year might prop erly be called 'Assistant Republican,'" said ex-Senator James K. Jones, of Arkansas, today. "Considerable money Is being spent by the Populists in the . campaigrn and my opinion is that it is being furnished by some one outside of their organization, and the Repub licans will be the greatest beneficiaries of their work." This is-the first -time that Mr,; Jones has publicly spoken , of the movement headed by Tom Watson, and his utter ance was delivered with great empha sis. * >X-J3£&ESSS&iiBSBGBEi&Z>r. v "• "Mr. Watson's candidacy at this time is unquestionably intended to be hurtful to Judge Parker. If there was at any time a doubt about this, the ©pen declaration of Mr. Watson In a public speech at Atlanta, in which he declared that he preferred Roosevelt to Parker, dispelled that doubt." PRIVATES HAVE COIN Some Discharged Soldiers Own Fat Bank Rolls About fifty of the men who were dis charged from the Twenty-first infan try appeared at the army building yes terday to. complete their final account- Ings with the government. The men are a part of those who were dis charged under the recent order of the war department so that they might re enlist for the term of service that the regiment is about to begin in the Phil- lppines. - - The officers in charge say that only those who had less than six months of their enlistment to serve were given the option of leaving the sci-vice, and that the others who came within the terms of the order from Washington had to choose between a re-enlistment in the regiment or a transfer to some other organization. In speaking of the final accounting* one of the officers said: "It is i-uiious how much some of the enlisted men have to their credit at the conclusion of a term of service. They draw between $13 and $18 a month, and some of them have as much us $3,000 in cash on deposit at the end of their period of enlistment."

PAUL GLOBE NEW YORK, Sept. 17.—The follow ing letter concerning: the Democratic campaign book was made public by George F. Parker, chief of the Demo cratic literary department tonight: ROSEMOUNT, ESOPUS, N. V., Aug. 17, 1904.—My Dear Mr. Parker: The Times of this morning says that the party text book is about prepared and that it will go to the printer in a few days. Therefore I hasten to beg you to see to it that there is no. word in it that reflects upon the personal honor and in tegrity of President Roosevelt. An Even ing Post editorial indicates that but little care was taken in that direction towards myself by the compiler of the Republican text book, but let there be no rejoindei in kind or otherwise. I feel confident that you need no reminder, still my anxiety impels me to send this caution. Very truly yours, —-Alton B. Parker. It was said at the Democratic na tional headquarters today that Judge Parker wilNnake another visit to New- York within a week or before the publication of his letter of acceptance. SOCIALISTS REBEL Agitation in Italy Is Becoming Very Serious ROME, Sept 17.—The socialist agi tation is on the increase, especially in the northern part of Italy. In some places it is assuming the character of a rebellion. Another fight has oc curred at Genoa between the strikers and police. The whole night was passed in darkness there, owing to the strike. The mayor and other municipal of ficers of Milan came to Rome today to present to the government an expres sion of the indignation of the popula tion of Milan as a result of what they term the slaughter of the people. The real cause of the whole agitation is an attempt of the extreme party to over throw the cabinet, since, in spite of the fact that it is a liberal ministry, it energetically keeps the extremists in hand. The strike here has begun, but it is not general. At Naples it has been de cided to strike on Monday. In other towns troops are kept in readiness and the police everywhere have been rein forced. PASSENGER ENGINE LEAVES THE TRACK Eleven Men and a Woman Are Badly Injured in Chicago CHICAGO, Sept. 17.—A through passenger train on the Lake Shore & Michigan Southern railway was wrecked this afternoon near"the stock yards while entering Chicago. Ac counts of the cause of the accident differ, some saying that the train ran into an open switch, and others that the locomotive jumped the track. Twelve persons were injured and sev eral may die. The train was running at a high speed as the tracks are elevated. The accident occurred just before the train reached Root street. The locomotive left the track. The forepart of the tender struck the end of the Root street viaduct railing and was torn to pieces. The locomotive plunged to the far side of the viaduct, where a steel rail, torn from its fastenings, rose on end and transfixed the cab and the forepart of the baggage car.

They had no sooner reached the cur rent when one side tipped and the three men were plunged into the water. Louis Sego, who occupied one of the propelling bicycles, was thrown from his seat and sank below the surface several feet from the boat.. His com panion, Clarence Maher, was thrown to the other side, and Frank E. Hip kins, a bicycle dealer, who had fitted up the boat, and who was standing be hind the other two, fell head first into the water. Boat Overturn^ The capsized crew floundered about in the water, attempting to reach the boat, which regained its poise after the men were off. Sego succeeded in clutching one of the sides, but his com rades wei c not so fortunate. Hipkins, caught in the swift current, was car ried rapidly down the stream while he struggled to keep on the surface. Maher, also carried by the current, managed to hold his head above water most of the time, though he sank oc casionally. George Garrow, of the St. Paul Yacht club, who was leaving the docks of the club above the Robert street bridge in his launch "Minnesota," went to the rescue of the men struggling in the water and one by one picked them up. Dripping and somewhat frightened as a result of their ducking,-but not discouraged, the aquatic wheelmen im mediately se|. about getting their craft repaired. Second Start Successful The bicycles were slightly damaged, and before another start could be made it was necessary to get two other bicy cles. Hipkins sent to his shop and the needed wheels were soon on the levee. The work of replacing the broken bi cycles was quickly finished, and after Continued on Fourteenth Page / / Y^KjTU^ui ( §*~ ""^ T" I*^^! X • L Bw \ ' sS^l^ the Czar —Shall papa b!ow It for the baby? Urn? WILL SUPERSEDE KUROPATKIN Forces In the East OLSON AS A TOOL Government Contends He Acted for Big Lumbermen C. C. Haupt, United States district attorney, and J. M. Dickey, his assist ant, returned yesferday from Denver and Omaha. In the Nebraska metrop olis they-presented theicase of Svend Olson, plaintiff in error, against the United States, before Judges W. H. Sanborn and W." C. Hook, of the United States circuit court, and Judge William J. Munger, of the United States district court. The cases were to have been pre sented at Denver, but owing to the fact that Judge William Lochren, sit ting there, had been the original trial judge tit Duluth, Tvher§. Olson was convicted of fraud in making a timber and stone act entry in the Duluth land district, the case was transferred to Omaha and presented to the two cir cuit court judges and the Omaha dis trict court judge. The case is important inasmuch as the government contends that Olson was but the tool of Swallow & Hop kins, millionaire lumbermen of Duluth, and that. twentj'-three entries made by other men besides Olson, comprising 3,600 acres of valuable pine lands in thirteen sections in Lake county, Min nesota, were made for the benefit of the lumber firm. The entries have been held up, pend ing an investigation by the land de partment, and officers of the govern ment profess to believe that they will be canceled as fraudulent. Olson was convicted on trial at Du luth, before Judge Lochren, in May, 1903, and sentenced to pay a fine of $500, while his entry was canceled. The entire twenty-four men were in dicted, .but separate trials were de manded and Olson's was made a test case. The appeal was taken on the ground that the verdict was not justi fied by the evidence and on alleged errors of law. The lumber company, if the conten tions of the government are true, has at least $10,000 invested in the claims, and is making a stubborn fight to pro tect its interests. The pine is worth many times the amount directly in volved. . C. A. Severance, of St. 'Paul, and J. ii. Washburri, of Duluth, repre sented- the defendant Olson at Omaha. No decision is expected for some weeks. A NEW NOTE FOR BABY BOGUS ARMY OFFICER TELLS STRANGE TALE Hotel Beat Blames Rival in Love Affair for His Con dition Impersonating 1 an officer of the United States army, H. E. H. King, a young man believed to be an expelled cadet of the West Point military acad emy, has been traveling about the country making a specialty of jump ing board bills. He registered on Sept. 7 at Hotel Freeborn, Albert Lea, as Second Lieut. H. F. Colley, of the First cavalry, and leaving there suddenly on Sept. 12, with an "unpaid bill of $12, was arrested two days later at Man kato. He is now serving a thirty-day sen tence at Albert Lea, and when released from the lockup at that town will be arrested by the United States marshal on* a warrant sworn out by the district attorney, who has taken charge of the prosecution. Assistant District Attorney Dickey said yesterday that King will be held to the federal grand jury which meets in Mankato the fourth Tuesday in Octo ber. He will be charged with imper sonating an officer of the regular army and also with using official envelopes for private purposes. King, ■tfho when arrested was dressed in the full uniform of a second lieuten ant, had in his possession the diploma of Lieut. Colley, but refused to say how he had procured it. He claims his lather is a retired army officer and that his home is in New York. He had been sent to West Point, but through a rival in a love af fair, he claimed, was expelled after be ing court-martialed on a charge of con spiracy. He claimed that his enemy forged papers which caused his convic tion. After 'leaving the academy, de termined to prove his innocence, he "went to ©hicago and visited his former rival and forced him to sign a paper in which the falsity of the accusations was admitted. On,the same day he se cured this vindication he was slugged in a suburb of Chicago and narrowly escaped death. He claimed that his former. friends refused to recognize him after the dis grace of being expelled and that he drifted aimlessly about the country. At the outbreak of the Spanish-American war he enlisted in the "Rough Riders" and served in Cuba. Later he saw service in the Philippines. He refused to talk of his recent movements. READY TO ATTACK PT. ARTHUR DIRECT JAPANESE ARE STARTING NEW MOVEMENT They Are Also Said to Be Tunneling the Fortifications—Russians Do Not Look for a Battle in the Neigh borhood of Mukden at Present PARIS, Sept. IS.—The correspondent of the Matin at Chifu says he learns from an official source that the Japanese are preparing for a direct attack on Port Arthur and that troops are daily landing at Dalny with powerful cannon. NOT LOOKING FOR A BATTLE ST. PETERSBURG, Sept. 17.—Tftere has been an absence of official: news from the front today. The war office is dis playing no special concern as yet over the continual skirmish ing on the flanks of the Russian army, regarding it as the nat ural desire of the Japanese to keep in touch with the Russian forces rather than as a premonitory symptom of a forward movement by Field Marshal Oyama's army, which the authorities are not inclined to believe can occur within a fortnight unless large reinforcements have been received and the work of getting up supplies has been done more quickly than was supposed possible. The Japanese having been un able to follow up their victory at Liau-yang when the time was ripe, the war office sees no reason for feverish haste on their part to fear for Gen. Kuropatkin, now that he has had time to recuperate his forces. FOR KUROPATKIN TO DECIDE The question whether a big battle will be fought in the vicinity of Mukden is thought to depend chiefly on Gen. Kuro patkin, as it is not believed the Japanese will be able to force him to fight at Mukden unless he so elects. The general idea is that when the advance really comes the Japanese will sim ply outflank Mukden and go direct against Tie pass. The movements of the Japanese land forces and the appearance of a large flotilla in the Liao river are believed to support this view. While military circles realize the strategic weakness or Mukden, there are political and sentimental reasons why Gen. Kuropatkin may desire to hold as long as possible the ancient home of the Manchu dynasty. They believe, in spite of of ficial intimations and press reports from Mukden to the con trary, that there will not be a repetition of the battle of Liau yang at Mukden. -TUNNEL FORTIFICATIONS As far as the public is concerned, interest seems again to be gravitating toward Port Arthur, where the gallant fight of Gen. Stoessel's garrison is watched with intense interest. The report that the garrison has been forced to fall back to the use of home-made powder, which is proving defective, is regarded as a discouraging factor. It would be a national gift should the defense of the fortress fail through lack of am munition. More importance, however, is attached in military circles to the report that the Japanese have abandoned the idea of a direct assault and are tunnelling the fortifications, and jt is believed possible that the end may come as at Sebastopol, with a repetition of the dreadful carnage at the Malakhoff tower. "SCRAP" IS SERIOUS Hoosier Students Badly Hurt in a Mlxup LAFAYETTE, Ind., Sept. 17.—After one of the roughest tank "scraps" ever held in Purdue university, the sopho mores late last night danced about 400 freshmen, bound hand and foot, and fastened to a long chain. The annual clash between the freshmen and sopho more classes resulted in thirty injuries, some of which are thought to be seri ous. Fred Haas, of West Lafayette, a sophomore, had his collar bone broken in the scrimmage; McNeal, freshman, was kicked in the stomach, and Jacobs, freshman, in the head; Trumbull, soph omore, suffered a wrenched spine; Earl Chandleiv freshman, was badly injured about the head and chest; McCoy, sophomore, was internally injured; Lucas, freshman, was kicked in the stomach and chest. An effort will be made to eliminate the annual "scrap" from college life. The leaders will be arraigned by Presi dent Stone on Monday. ALARMED FOR YOUNG WOMEN IN COLLEGES Greek Letter Sorories Start a Protec tive Crusade CHICAGO, Sept. 17.—Professing alarm at the moral dangers said to be sur rounding young women in American colleges, nine Greek letter sorories have started a crusade aimed at conditions in "every educational institution in the United States. Resolutions were adopt ed calling for the co-operation of col leges to improve social conditions and placing upon the grand presidents of the « societies responsibility for the prosecution of the reform movement. Mrs. E. Jean Nelson Pen field, of New York, wife of. Judge William Warner Penfield, as representative of the Kap pa Pha Gamma sorory, was the mov ing spirit in the intersorory conference which decided upon the reform move ment. SECOND SECTION PAGES 11 to 24 PRICE FIVE CENTS ESCAPESJU RUSE San Francisco Bank Robber Is Resourceful SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 17.—Just^at the close of banking hours today, a man in the lobby of the First National Bank of San Francisco, observing the cage door leading behind the counter ajar, pushed it open, walked in and helped himself to a bag containing $20,000 in gold coin, escaped to the Brooklyn hotel, followed by C. K. Mac intosh, an employe of the bank, who had witnessed the theft. The thief was overtaken and seized by Macintosh. When asked to turn over the money he said it was his own. The bag was taken from him, however, its contents undisturbed. The robber then called on the people in the hotel office to see if he had not told the truth by accom panying him to the bank only a few feet away. He walked to the corner undisturbed, boarded a passing car and was soon out of sight. MONEY NEARLY GONE Little Left to Bring Home Mm nesota Fair Exhibit C. S. Mitchell, who has just resign ed as superintendent of the Minnesota exhibit at the St. Louis world's fair. will present his report to the Minne- sota commission within a few days. The report will show, allowing an es timate of the operating expenses of the Minnesota commission at the fair for the remaining months of the exhibi tion, a balance of less than $2,000 in the commission's hands for the -return of the various exhibits to Minnesota. With the exorbitant charges for drayage, labor and packing, the work will take everything in the commis sion's treasury. Joseph Whitney, who has- been clerk to Supt. Mitchell, ha 3 returned from St. Louis and is com pleting the. details of the work in St. Paul. The new superintendent, G. Fred Stevens, of Duluth, has already as sumed the duties of his office. He had formerly been connected with the Min nesota exhibit of ores and minerals at the fair.
