Missouri Senator Discusses
TaMoosevelt Fight.
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.
Havana, May 22.—The Cuban gov
ernment disclaims any further knowl
edge regarding the uprising of the
negroes, but the opinion is spreading
that conditions are becoming more
serious. It is creditably reported that
two armed parties are operating In
the province of Malansa, which hith
«rto has been reported tranquil. A
strong band of negroes assaulted the
barracks of the rural guards at Ma
gulto, near C.uantanamo, but the rural
guards were able to offer a success
ful defense, although they lost two
killed. Apparently the trouble is con-
Uned to the provinces of Santa Clara

Two Thousand Presbyterian
Pu'pits Vacant.
ASSEMBLY IS SURPRISED
Statement 3rings Out Criticism of
Policy of Dismissing "Clergymen of
Brains ard Education" for No Other
Reason Than Their Age.
\V. .1.
Louisville. Ky., May 22.—After the
surprising declaration that there are
2,000 churches in tile United States
"pastorless and shepherd less" had
teen made in the ^neral assembly ot
the Northern Presbyterian church
resolutions were adopted urging all
Presbyterian commissioners (laymen)
to keep in close touch with youtiK men
who might be candidates for the min
istry.
Rev. Joseph W. ('ochrane of Chila
delphiu. discussing a minister's living
chances, said:
"We hear advices that a man to be
a minister must starve. I never knew
that to be true. 1 will admit that the
salaries are not princely, but it can't
be remedied except by this very as
sembly."
Immediately Rev. Dr. Henry I. 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.'
To this Dr. Becker attributed the
gradual diminution of successful can
didates for the ministry. The young
men need the advice and counsel of
their elders, bi|t now there are too
few elders.
The assembly proceeded with con
sideration of a report on a new in
termediate catechism and a mass ot
other technical subjects.

REV. MADISON C. PETERS.
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."
