Compares Present Administration's
Methods -With Those of Washing
ton— Lays Stress on Fraud* Race
Issue and Reckless Expenditures
ELK INS. W. Va.. Oct. 2.—Henry G.
Davis, the Democratic candidate for
vice president, has written the follow
ing letter of acceptance:
Hon. John Sharp Williams and Other
Members of the Committee—Dear Sirs:
In accordance with custom, and my prom
ise when notified by your committee at
White Sulphur Springs, on Aug. 17, of
my nomination for the office of vice pres
ident. I submit the following observations
upon some of the questions now before
The times are propitious for the rein
statement of the Democratic party In
control of the government. The public,
mind is being disillusioned of the pre
tension of the Republican party, so long
and so arrogantly made, that tne material
prosperity of the country depends upon its>
own ascendancy. Thoughtful and pa
triotic people are becoming more and
more distrustful of the heady and per
sonal element of the present administra
tion, and are more than willing to see it
replaced by one that better recognizes
constitutional and other lawful restraints.
They demand that the jJfcsent wasteful
extravagance in the expenditure of the
money, drawn by taxation from the in
dustry of the people, shall cease, and that
economy and honesty in the public serv
ice shall be again regarded as virtues in
the high places of the government.
The expenditures per capita of the gov
ernment are increasing at an alarming
Countess Lonyay Declares Lou

ROME, Oct. 2.—Countess Lonyay,
Princess Stephanie, has arrived at Sal
eumaggiore for the cure.
To a correspondent there the count
ess said she was pleased with her re

of Saxe-Coburg. and was convinced
that she had been more sinned against

rate. When the present administration
went into power there was a large sur
plus, but notwithstanding the enormous
taxation, the revenues therefrom are not
now adequate to meet tlie demands made
by reckless appropriations. The revenues
fell short during the last fiscal year, of
over $40,000,000. In the first sixty days
of this fiscal year the expenditures ex
ceeded the receipts by $24,000,000^ and if
this rate of e**ress should continue, the
deficit for the nrc-sent fiscal yean would
be in the neighborhood of $140,000,000.
This needless . deficit is due to-the ex
travagance of the administration. and
can only be met by imposing additional
taxes or selling bonds, thereby kicreas
ing the interest-bearing debt of the gov
ernment. Which course will the "sßepub
licans adopt? The cost of government
during the fiscal year was $7.14 p%r cap
ita, which means that the average tax
paid in some form or another by every
family of five persons toward the support
of the national administration of public
affairs was over $25, which, in the case of
wage earners, is a considerable percent
age of their entire earnings for the year.
No more money should be taken from the
people by taxation, direct or indirect,
than is necessary for theneeds of a gov
ernment economically administered. To
show the rapid growth of the cost of
government it is only necessary to give tht

George Burton and John Ward
Are Charged With Working
Card Game
George Burton and John C. Ward,
alleged "con" men, are under arrest at
the central police station, charged
with working a three card monte game
on David Boak, of Nellsville, Wis., at
the new capitol Saturday afternoon.
Boak fell victim to the game and was
relieved of $42. He trailed the men,
however, and, though they separated,
dogged one until he turned him over to
Pat;olman Miske.
Boak, dressed roughly in overalls
and boots, arrived in St. Paul Satur
day afternoon, and was sauntering
along Eighth street when he was ac
costed by a young man, who asked
him if he. was a stranger in the city,
and inquired where he lived.
"I told him I came from Neilsville,
and he said he came from Washburn,
Clark county, Wis., and asked me if I
knew Eddie Ward," said Boak. "I told
him I did not, and he said I couldn't
have been there long. Then he said
he had just back from a trip out West
and was going back to his home. I
was interested in the West and told
him I was thinking of going out there.
We talked for a while and he asked
me if I had any money and I told him
I had. Then he wanted to borrow $5
to get his valise from the depot. I
would not give it to him, but he did
not seem to care much, so we walked
Man Had Three Cards
"We came across a man with three
cards, one an ace of spades. My com
panion said: 'That fellow is a fool. I
could pick out that ace any time.' The
fellow with the cards then said he
would bet I couldn't do it and I said
I made a rule of never betting with
anybody. Then he laid out some paper
money on the steps and said if I could
pick out the ace I could have all the
money. I told him I thought the money
was not good, and he offered to go to
any bank with me to pro\ie that it was
genuine. I told him not to take any
trouble. Then my companion told me
to pick the card with the corner turned
down and I did. It was the ace of
spades and the man with the cards said
the money was mine. He handed it to
me and tore two of the bills. He
blamed me for doing it and swore at
me. Then both pitched on me and
took my money from my pocket."
Ward Is Arrested
Having secured the money, the men
started away and Boak followed. The
men parted after walking a few blocks
and Boak followed his original ac
quaintance, whom he turned over to
Patrolman Miske on Seventh street.
From Ward, who was arrested first,
the police learned the whereabouts of
Burton and he was arrested yesterday.
Ward will be prosecuted in St. Paul
and Burton will be sent to Hudson,
Wis., where he is wanted for jumping
$1,000 bail bonds furnished a few
months ago when he was arrested on
a charge of short changing a man on
an Omaha -train. The officials of the
road are interested in the case and will
prosecute Burton at Hudson.

Rev. Dr. W. C. P«pe Replies to Abbot
Consul's Action Taken Before
Favorab'e Report of Peirce
Is Filed
Globe Special Washington Service
1417 G Street
WASHINGTON, D. C, Oct. 2.—Some
misapprehension has been caused by
the statement of Assistant Secretary of
State Peirce regarding the publication
in The Globe' last Thursday that
Consul General Goodnow had been ex
onerated. Mr. Peirce took occasion to
deny that he had made a report to the
president recommending that Mr. Good
now be allowed to remain in office, in
asmuch as the charges against him
had not been proved. The statement in
The Globe dispatch, however, was
made on higher authority than that of
Mr. Peirce.
It was stated in the dispatch to The
Globe that Mr, Goodnow, being un
der the impression that Mr. Peirce had
reported or was about to report against
him, demanded that he be given an op
portunity to answer the latest charges
against him. It was not known at the
time the dispatch was written, how
ever, that Mr. Goodnow's application for
leave "to come home and personally an
swer the charges had been granted.
Such appears to be the case from Mr.
Peirce's statement.
Report Was Favorable
The facts are, that-Assistant Secre
tary Peiree made a more or less thor
ough investigation of the Goodnow
charges while he was in the Orient,
and that upon his return he wrote out
a report which was submitted, to Presi
dent Roosevelt. This report has never
been made public, and even the pur
port of it was not publicly known until
last Thursday's publication in The
Globe. Despite official denials, Mr.
Peiree did write the report and he did
recommend that Goodnow be not dis
missed, but, Qn the contrary, that the
charges against him be dismissed.
In view of Mr. Goodnow's premature
and ill-advised action in assuming that
Mr. Peiree had reported or was about
to report against him, followed by his
demand for a further hearing, it may
be that the whole case may be re
Gives Curtis, a Chance
A hearing of what Goodnow may
have to say when he arrives here will
naturally give his enemies, especially
Attorney Curtis, who is conducting a
bitter campaign against him, a chance
to be heard also; and it is possible that
some new evidence will be introduced.
The matter has been one of some
annoyance to the President, and he
would be glad to see it wound up. A
public announcement would have been
made that the case was closed had not
Mr. Goodnow absolutely demanded that
he be heard further.
As It will be several weeks before
Consul Goodnow can reach Washing
ton, the case will not be formally dis
posed of, probably, until after election.

South Carolina Mob Hangs and
Shoots Slayer
CHARLESTON, S. C, Oct. 2.—News
of the lynching of John Morrison, a
white man, who killed Will T. Floyd
Saturday at ICershaw, has just been
received. -
Immediately after the killing of
Floyd and the arrest^of Morrison, feel
ing became intense. There was little
said, but it soon became known that
the sheriff of Lancaster was on his way
to assist in protecting the prisoner.
An electric light had been placed be
fore the guardhouse and a policeman
was on guard. At about 8 o'clock the
light went out and a crowd poured into
the alley, overpowered the policeman,
took the keys and brought Morrison
He was taken just outside the town
limits and hanged to a tree with a pair
of buggy lines.
Two shots were fired into Morrison's
back as he swung. Sheriff Hunter, of
Lancaster, with deputies, arrived at
Kershaw on a special train, a few min
utes after the guardhouse was forced
and he heard the pistol shots.
He began searching for the lynching
party and found the body about mid
night. Troops from Camden arrived
later. An inquest was held and the
usual verdict rendered. No arrests
have been made.
Will Try Every Means to Discover
Who Injured Battleship
WASHINGTON, D. C, Oct. 2.—Navy
department officers are thoroughly
aroused over the discovery of the lat
est attempt to injure the new battle
ship Connecticut, launched at the New
York navy yard last" Thursday, by the
punching or boring of a hole in her
side below the water line.
Thus far only unofficial reports of
the matter have reached "the depart
ment, where it is confidently hoped
that a rigid investigation, now being
conducted by the commandant of the
New York yard, into the work of those
who are implicated in the affair will
lead to the apprehension of the guilty
The naval officials here are unable
to ascribe a motive unless it was one
of pure mischief. It is said that the
injury to the ship ia not at all" serious
and the repairs can be made quickly.

Jap Army Resumes the Aggressive^
Before Mukden and in Desperate
Attack Envelops Both Wings of
Gen. Samsonoff—Several Russian
Batteries Caught in Charge Are
Dismantled Before a Shot Can Be
Efforts by the Russians to retake positions commanding
the water suppjy of Port Arthur have resulted in hard fight
ing, the losses on both sides being reported to have been
heavy. The Japanese retain the contested ground.
It is said that heavy guns newly mounted threaten the
Russian warships in the harbor of Port Arthur, which may
now be forced to go out and face the fleet of Admiral Togo.
There is a report that a .Japanese gunboat was sunk by
coming in contact with a mine south of the Liaotung penin
sula; the report adds that a portion of the crew were rescued.
The Japanese have completed the changing of the gauge
of the railway from Dalny to New-chwang and'its equipment
is nearly finished; this will be of great assistance to the armies
in Manchuria.
The Russian admiralty has decided to dispatch the Baltic
squadron in the direction of the far East within a short period
of time; events are expected, however, to determine whether
the vessels shall proceed to their destination or return to Rus
sian ports to await reinforcements.
Special Cab'e to The Globe
MUKDEN, Oct. 2.—Couriers arriving early.today after a
forced ride from Gen. Samsonoff's field headquarters, bring
information of the sudden retreat by that general in—the face
of a strong and rapid forward movement by Oku's entire
An abrupt resumption of the aggressive by Marshal Oya
ma's left wing was begun yesterday morning. Instead of
advancing with their customary caution the Japs rushed into
action in a way that indicated either sudden accession of
recklessness or extreme confidence in their strength.
Gen. Oku attacked Samsonoff's Cossacks with infantry
and dragoons and in less than twenty minutes the entire
Russian front at that point was raked by a severe cross fire
from the enemy's batteries.
Several Cossack horse batteries were dismantled before
they could be swung into action. Two sotnias of cavalry
fighting dismounted were thrown on the center with a loss
of more than three hundred killed and wounded, and in a
quarter of an hour the enemy followed that success by turn
ing back both wings of Samsonoff's division and weakening
his center with concentrated rifle and machine gun fire.
LONDON, Oct. 3.—Vln connection with rumors of another
projected sortie of the Port Arthur squadron, a Shanghai
dispatch says that a Russian warship was expected to arrive
at Wosung Sunday night, Russians there having chartered a
tender to meet her.
According to a Japanese correspondent in the Morning
Post such a sally would only be attempted in the last ex
tremity and when the surrender of the garrison could no
longer be postponed. Because the waterworks are in the
hands of tiie besiegers and the shore water condensing ap
paratus had been ruined by the Japanese, shell fire, the cor
respondent adds the garrison is dependent now upon the con
densers of the fleet for fresh water. ..
