the Dlngley tariff law, were consider
ed to-day at the public hearing be
fore the house committee on ways
and means , which has in hand the
work of preparing a readjustment of
the tariff law for presentation to the
special session of congress to he calh
ed next March. The total Importa
tions of unmanufactured tobacco for
the year 1907 was valued at $29,
260,183, yielding the government a
revenue of $26,125,037, which indi
cates the Importance of this article
In considering any readjustment of
the tariff. The exports amounted to
$33,377,398. . '
There are over 17,000 establish
ments in this country, engaged in the
manufacture of tobacco, which in
cludes the making of smoking and
chewing tobaccos of all kinds, cigar
ettes and snuff, representing an in
vestment of nearly $400,000,000.

000 wage earners and over 10,000

Disease and Drugs May Prevent Trial
of Mrs Read. (
' Denver, Nov 18. Weakened by
disease and drugs, Mrs' Allen F.
Read, who threatened the life of Mrs
Genevieve Chandler Phlpps with dy
namite last Monday, may never live
to undergo the experiences of the
prison cell or madhouse as the con
sequence ' of her daring attempt at
extortion. Late last night informa
tion reached Chief-of-Police Arm
strong that Mrs Read's condition was
extremely critical. The message
came from her husband, in whose
care Mrs Read was placed by order
of the chief. 1
"We think she will never recov
er," Mr Read told the chief. "We
fear it is only a question of days,
perhaps only of hours, until the end
comes." i
This Information was corroborated
by Dr R. O. Butterfleld, Mrs Read's
physician. Mrs. Read has recovered"
somewhat from the effects of the
drugs she had taken to get relief
from pain. Still her mind has not
cleared. She Insists that she re
members nothing, of what had taken
place in the last week. - ;
The police have about reached the
end of their immediate plajj)ox In
vestigating the Read case. They
confess themselves nonplussed. Chl-f
Armstrong will await the arrival
from Rochester, N. Y., of Miss Jessie
Campbell, a sister of Mrs Read,,ln
the hope that she may be able to
throw some light on the mystery
because ahe was one of the last per
sons to see Mrs Read before she left
PlttBfleld after the funeral of her
father there.'
Lawrence Phlpps, divorced hus
band of Mrs Genevieve Chandler
Phlpps, who has represented his for
mer wife In handling the legal side
of the case, announced that he has
turned the whole matter over to Dis
trict Attorney Stldger.

his former wife are -convinced that
Mrs Read was not responsible for her
actions. ' '

Policies For Wbleb the Depio
crallc Parly Stands Are
Not Dead Be Says.
Lincoln, Neb, Nov 13. Bidding
his followers not , to despair; but to
press on In the fight, W. J. Bryan
declared yesterday that be takes
comfort In the result of the elec
tion and Is not cast down. He says
the democrats out of office h'ave done
more than the republicans in office
during the last twelve years. The
forthcoming issue of the Commoner
will contain more of Mr Bryan's
ideas or the election and his-plans
for the future. In this he says:
"The election of 1908 is over, and
the returns disclose a signal victory
for our opponents, but the principles
for which our party stands, the poli
cies for which our party contends
these are not dead. A good proposi
tion Is not made bad by rejection at
the noils; a needed reform is not
made unnecessary by an adverse vote.
The legislation asked for . by the
democratic party in its last national
platform was not of a temporary
character It v was legislation which
will be of permanent advantage
when It is secured.
"Does any one believe that the
American people will permanently
permit secrecy as to campaign : con
tributions? Does any one believe
that the American people will per
manently permit the will of the vot
ers to be thwarted, as it is now, by
the election of senators through leg
islatures? Does any one believe that
the trusts will be permitted to per
manently permit the tariff to be
written by the (beneficiaries of that,
tariff? Does any one believe that
the public will permanently tolerate
estrangement between labor and
capital? Does any one believe that
the fifteen millions of depositors will
forever permit their savings to be
jeopardized as; at present? . Does
any one believe that the extrava
gance of the government will go on
forever unchecked? Does any, one
believe that our republic will perma
nently consent to a colonial policy,
with its humiliations and financial
burdens? r There must be a party
representing the ' people's Interest
against wrong in high places, against
corruption in politics and against the
oppression of struggling masses; and
the democratic party must continue
its fight or dissolve. '
"As for jnyself, let no one worry
about my future.. The holding of of
fice Is a mere Incident in the life of
Those who are devoted to" reforms.
The reform is the essential thing. If
one can advance reforms by holding
office, then the holding of office is
justifiable; if one can best advance
reforms as a private citizen, then
the holding of office la undesirable.
The world owes me nothing; I have
been abundantly compensated for
what I have been able to do. My
life will not be long enough to repay
the people for their support and for
the confidence which they have ex
pressed. My gratitude to those with
whom I have labored surpasses lan
guage and the days of the future
will be devoted to work in the in
terest of the people as I understand
that Interest, and in behalf of those
reforms which seem to me to bethe
Youae Man In Trouble Who Thought
He Was Tom Lawson.
New York, Xov 13. An attempt
to borrow money by representing
himself as Thomas W. Lawson, the
Boston financier, to-day, "Friday the
Thirteenth," resulted in the arrest of
a flashily dressed young man who de
scribed himself as Robert Carter, 22
years old, In the Hotel Breslln. He
was taken into custody as he was
leaving a telephone booth in the ho
tel after he had talked with friends
of Mr Lawson " in Boston over the
long distance wire. The specific
charge was violation of the hotel
laws In ordering something for which
tie could not pay. He was unable to
settle the charge of $2.50 for the use
of the telephone wire. The arrest
was brought about by Mr Lawson's
friend In Boston with whom Carter
had been talking. Carter had called
this man at the Hotel Touralne, told
him he was Mr Lawson and that he
was "short of money." He said he
had visited the horse show last night
and after telling the , Boston man
about the prise winners and some of
the unsuccessful horses as well
said his supply of money, was ex
hausted and asked that some be sent
him at once. The man in Boston
told Carter to hold the wire until It
could be arranged. Then he, called
the manager of the Breslln on anoth
er wire. A moment later In response
to a call from the hotel manager a
detective hurried up from a nearby
police station. "No wonder tbat fel
low got in trouble." remarked some
one as he was being led away. "He
should have known better than to
have used the name of Lawson on
Friday, the thirteenth.'"

crqwds were pouring out of the bor

the elevated trains lu Fulton ' street
directly iu front of the theater en
trance. The wildest rumors of dead
and dying victims excited the throng,
and the police reserves had a hard
time maintaining the fire lines.

the company. Other members of th
company saved niost of their personal

It seemed likely that the flames
might sweep, over the roof to Hyde k
Bekuian's Olympic theater, which is
separated from the Park-by only One
building. ' It was In what Is now
known as the Olympic tbat the bodies
of over 400 victims of the Brooklyn
theater fire of 1877 were placed to'
await Identification. Of the 400 bodies
more than 850 were buried as unldcn.
tided in Greenwood cemetery.
Under the management of Colonel
Bill Sinn the Park theater was the
most fumous playhouse In Brooklyn a
quarter of a century ago. It was built
In 18(50 and until Colonel Sinn became

fully by Mrs. F. B. Conway. All of

New Haven, Nov 13. An Investi
gation was begun this morning by, '
Coroner Ell Mix Into the circum
stances surrounding the death of Ed.
win G. Llndsteadt who was struck
and' almost instantly killed about
about last midnight, just after get
ting, off a trolley car in Westvllle,
nearly in front of bis home by a a
automobile owned by Senator Alton
Farrel of Ansonla and, it Is said,
driven by him. In the car with the
senator were his brother. Franklin
Parrel, Jr, and a woman, whose name
the authorities did not learn. Sena
tor Farrel and his brother are Yale
graduates, and sons of Franklin Far
rel, the mlllonalre foundryman of
Ansonla. The automobile party, it
Is said, was bound for that city at
the time of the accident. Senatoq
aFrrel is also a former mayo rof An
sonla, and in the recent election was
chosen a presidential elector of the
Connecticut electoral college, on the
republican ticket. Immediately after,
the accident the automobile was'
stopped and the Farrels went baclc
to investigate and to give what as
slstance they could, including the
summoning of a physician. Llnd
staedt died within a few moments oC
being struck. The police and Medi
cal Examiner Burtlett were notified
and the latter after a brief prelimi
nary examination on the scene of
the death allowed to automobile to
proceed, after instructing the Far
rels to appear in New Haven at the
investigation. Dr Bartlett stated as
a result of his preliminary examina
tion that' the man died probably ot
Internal injuries as a result of being;
struck on the chest. As nearly as the
medical examiner could learn the au
tomobile was going in the same direc
tion as the trolley car but somewhat
behind It, and on the same side of
the road. He said, apparently Llnd
staedt had stood for a moment after
getting oil the car as if waiting for
the automobile to pass and had then .
started to cross the street. The driv
er of the automobile, he said, had
turned his car to the sidewalk .ap
parently, and had driven in toward
the curb so close as to knock over a
hitching post in an endeavor to avoid
hitting Lindstaedt. i
The taking of evidence in tb
case lasted throughout' the mornIng
and until early afternoon, and at it's
close the coroner said he was unpre .
pared to - make -,any , statement.
Among the witnesses examined were
Senator Farrel, Charles F. Brooker
and the conductor and motorman of
the car. : ' " ; ' ' .
