After Warn In??Mayor As* uro* Dlx
New York, Nov. 2.?The Demo?
cratic State campaign here reached
flood tide tonight at a meeting in
Carneg e hall where John A. Dlx,
the nominee for governor, made his
first public address in the city. The
meeting also served as the occasion
for Mayor Oaynor's long expected
formal announcement of his support
of the ticket. The mayor's voice
still being weak, this came In the
form of a letter to the chairman of
the meeting.
The rally was held under the aus?
pices of the Independent Busines?
Men's league and Herman Bidder,
president of that organization, pre?
Mr. Dlx devoted the greater part
of a 3,000 word speech to a denunci?
ation of Theodore Hoosevelt. He
charged the former president with
wilful falsehood in repeating the ac?
cusations for which Mr. Dlx in his
Buffalo speech demanded an apology.
He declared that Col. Roosevelt, "be?
cause of what he deems to be his
political necessity of the hour, struck
hands and made a political alliance"
with William R. Hearst whom, four
years ago, Roosevelt had publicly
branded "as responsible for the as
sasln's bullet which made him presi?
Leaving the subject of Roosevelt,
the candidate returned to charges of
Republican extravagance. He prom?
ised that a Democratic administra?
tion would reduce taxation and once
more make it possible for the "aver
uge man" to save enough for a rainy
day. He denounced the Republican
tariff policy and declared himself for
a downward revision of the tariff.
"This campaign," .said Mr. Dix,
"like gS many in the v?.ist. Involves
questions of policy and expenditures,
of reform and retrenchment, and the
other questions which necessarily
have to do with carrying on the well
ordered business of government.
"Such QUSSttollf WOUld have been

ality of the act of 1910 wh eh pro?
vided that funds, owing sundry liquor

by the commission to be due. The aban?

the attorneys for Grabfelder regard
the act as valid though this question
is yet to be determined by the su

Experts Surprised When Deficit for

Washington. Nov. 1.?The Govern?
ment's finances took a downward
twist during the l.ist three days of
October and tricked the experts
who had been predicting a surplus
for the month and hoping for an I
even break at the worst.
Exclusive of the Panama Canal
charges, the receipts for the month
were $."5,266,4 41 and the expendi?
tures $58.560.3 23, which left a deficit
in ordinary operations of $3.203.882.

ledger. The close of September had
shown a total surplus of more than
td ,400,000. and It was the first time
in the present fiscal year that the
Government took in more than it
paid out. While the operations of
the month bring the total treasury
deficit for the fiscal year to more
than $21.000,000, and the close of
September saw it down to $15,000,
000, the situation Is not considered
Barring all unusual expenditures,
such as for the Panama Canal and
payments on the public debt. the
month's operations show a deficit of
$13,000,000, as against $23,000,000 a
year ago. In the face of the growing
receipts which now total more than
$226.000,000 for this year,' treasury
officials expect to be satistled with

Serious Trouble Feared.
Chicago, Nov. 2.?Grim spectres
of the days of the Haymarket riot
haunted Chicago's streets for a brief
time late this afternoon when Inspec?
tor S. K. Healy and squad of 60 po?
licemen with drawn revolvers,
charged several thousand striking
garment workers who were rioting
on the West Side. One policeman was
stabbed, 15 rioters were seriously in?
jured and 25 strikers and sympathi?
zers were arrested during the brisk
fight which threatened to get beyond
police control.
This, the most serious outbreak
that has occurred since the Inception
of the strike of garment workers oc?
curred at the plant of A. Lot & Co.,
at West Ohio and Bickerdike streets.
Before the police arrived the strikers
had broken all the windows in the
large building occupied by the cloth
. ing maufacturers, had driven strike?
breakers out and carried a large
number of sewing machines into the
streets where the machines were de?
The strikers and their followers
put up a desperate fight for a time.
Many of their number were
knocked down by the clubbing of
the police and not a few were tram?
pled on in the fighting which follow?
ed. Bleeding heads and faces were
numerous and a number of persons
suffered more serious injuries.
When pickets gained entrance to
the tailoring establishment, as the
mob of strikers approached the build?
ing, some of the employes of the
company joined the strikers and are
said to have assisted in the work of
destruction. Men and women were
hurling br'cks and stones through
the windows of the plant when In?
spector Healy and his squad of re?
serves arrived.
The inspector experienced difficulty
In getting together the disorganized
force of policemen which had borne
the brunt of the early fighting.
When he had done so, however,
the policemen charged through the
centre of the mob, knocking down
all in their way.
As a result of today's developments
in the strike situation. Ch ef of Po?
lice Steward tonight odered a confer?
ence of his inspectors and issued a
special set of emergency orders to

within the next 24 hours. All pre?
parations are being made for hastily
calling in reserves from outlying sta?

Rev. R, C. Reed, of Columbia, Ex?
tends Fraternal (?rectinga from
Prosb>tcrian Church to geOSjiees.
! Columbia. Nov. 4.?Rev R. C. Reed
! of Columbia has been selected as the
! delegate of the Presbyterian General
Assembly of the South to bear fra?
ternal greetings to the synod of the
Associated Reformed Presbyterian
church, which will be held in Char?
lotte next week. This is the first
time In the history of the Seceder
church that a representative has been
officially delegated to bear fraternal
greetings to its leading council from
the main body of the Presbyterian
faith, and this fact Is believed to
pres?age closer relations of theee two
branches of the faith?if not at once,
then in the next several years. The
selection of Dr. Reed for this import?
ant mission is a most happy one.
It is hardly probable, however, that
the two branches of the faith will be
re-united though the two churches
have been on most friendly terms
for years. The Seceders have never
\et been able to lay aside their
unique Ind rvlduality, even to uniting
with the United Presbyterian church
of the North, whose form of worship
is identical with theirs. The chief
difference between the two churches
!n the South is the resolution of the
S. ceders to bar human composition*
from their worship.
The visit of Dr. Reed to the synod
in Charlotte will be. if nothing else,
another step toward bringing the
Protestant churches closer together
in that work whVh each denomina?
tion is doing in i annum with tb*
others. Mr. Reed's presence will
add to the Interest taken in the synod
by the general public and will
probably Inaugurate a custom that
will, in time. I- ad >pt? t b| other
