WORLD LOOKS ON AGI1ASI Declares Language Used by Former' Cronies Resembles the Vernacular of a Fish Market—Quotes Some of the "Polite" Exchanges. Washington. May 22.—Soiiator •tone of .Missouri curricd out liis pur pose of iKiilroKsim I. sen tile on "Tlio Modern Damon iind Pythias and Cor related Subjects PertaininK to Cur rent Polities." "Mr. president," he said, "any man having even meaner knowledge of an cient lore will recall the story of Da moil and I'yllnas and the story of David and Jonathan. "A few years ai?o the American pen plo and the civilized world were given to understand that here in our own dear country we had a reproduction of these glorious traditions of the far distant past. "We were led to believe that the combined and consolidated spirits of Damon and Jonathan had come out. of *heir haven of rest and taken refuge In the corpus ot Theodore Roosevelt and that the combined spirits of David and Pythias had in like manner come to rest on the ample bosom of Will iam Howard Taft. "Thus in happy conjunction, both of these old stories of ancient lore and love were reproduced here in this new ..world of ours for the edification and uplifting of the human race." Enter the Serpent of Ambition. Senator Stone, amid laughter, said It had been a case of "two souls with but a single thought two heart that beat as one," until "the slimy and poi sonous serpent of ambition crawled across the path they were walking and divided them. Both had tasted the bittersweet of power and liked it overmuch. Both were tempted and both fell." "So instead of peace we have had •war," the senator continued "war with knives and knives to the hilt. As a consequence of this ferocious con test the country and the world have been treated to a series of spectacular vaudeville stunts in politics without a parallel In the history of our country and which 1 devoutly hope will not be repeated." "These world famed Republican leaders have been for months circling the .country abusing each other like pickpockets in language akin to the vernacular of a fish market, or even something worse. The world outside looks on aghast and the press and the reading public of Europe and of all enlightened nations everywhere car toon and laugh at them." To the amusement of the senate, Senator Stone read at some length samples "of the polite exchanges of compliments" among the three Repub lican candidates. He said he must Srant that President Taft, "innately a (entleman," evidently was reluctant to enter upon "this ruffian fight." He aiBerted, however, that the last word In "this black chapter of American Hitofry" would be written at Chicago. CUBAN NEGROES IN REVOLT ^Prising Declared to Be Becoming Seriout.

Beck er of Dayton, Ohio, interrupted: "Hundreds of gray haired men of the ministry annually are dismissed or cast aside," he said. "Men of brains, education and good records are eliminated for no other reason than that they are 'too old.'

Condemns Scenes Surrounding the Electrocution of Richeson. TRAVESTY ON THE CHURCH Rev. Madison C. Peters Discusses Richeson Electrocution. New York, May 22.—"The solemnity and mock religious atmosphere that apparently surrounded the electrocu tion of C. V. T. Richeson surely horri fied the most hardened and if the Rev. Herbert S. Johnson really asked Richeson: 'Are you ready to die foi Jesus' sake?' it was the worst travesty oti the church and religion that I evei heard," declared Rev. Madison C. I-V ters, pastor of Pilgrim Congregational church. ".lust such maudlin and sacrilegious things disgust all sensible people with the church and make them despise re ligion. "Richeson did not die for Jesus' sake. That is a mockery. He did not even die for the sake of Avis Linnell. He died to satisfy the demands i»f justice because the state of Massachusetts declared that he had to. "Such things only tend to glorify murder and attract sentiment to mur derers and if we persist in making heroes out of such men as Richeson we cannot expect to check crime." RICHESON MET HIS FATE CALMLY Self-Control of Former Min ister a Surprise. Boston, May 22.—Facing death with a fortitude that amazed his spiritual advisers, his counsel and the ten who were state's witnesses, C. V. T. Riche son, former pastor of Immanuel Bap tist church. Cambridge, died in the electric chair at Charlestown prison with an exhibition of manhood he had never before shown during his life. A current of l.iioo volts was hurled through Richeson's body. Three physicians pronounced his death instantaneous. Twice the volt age was lowered and twice shocked again into the body of the man who had betrayed and then murdered pret ty Avis Linnell, the little Hyaunis choir singer. Rev. Herbert Stebhins, prison chap lain, who has officiated on many such hideous occasions, broke down com pletely after he had left the death chambsr. "It was not altogether the misery or the horror of the whole thing." said Dr. Stebbins, "'hat has shaken me. It was more than that. It was the man's heroism displayed in his man ner of dying, penitent and secure in the belief of salvation. "It was a revelation and a miracle that only God could have wrought. Until he was pronounced dead I could not believe this poor sinner who has confessed to so much weakness and cowardice throughout his whole life would be able to see the light and die courageously, through sincere trust in God. I repeal—it was surely a revela tion of God's power, which was grant ed because Richeson died a far better man than he has ever lived."
