Views of Senator James K. Jooes Upon
the Situatioa.
Be Would Increase the Ta oa Beer
by tl a Baircl-.lielieves That the
Poor Maa Should Enjoy Tobacco
Unmolested"!! a Trifle Haay oa
the Income Tax-Eiplnin the Suc
cess of Major McKinley.
Washington, Nov. 23. Senator James
K. Jones, chairman of the national
Democratic committee, reached Wash
ington this afternoon and will remain
here now until congress adjourns. A
reporter for the United Associated
Presses saw him at his home shortly
after his arrival, to whom the senator
talked frankly and entertainingly upon
some matters of current Interest. He
hud just come from his hunting trip in
southwestern Missouri, In company
with Mr, liryan and Governor iStone, of
Missouri, which, while not satisfactory
from the game bug standpoint, was
eminently successful as a health re
storing scheme.
, "I have no Idea," said Senator Jones,
answering a question In 'regard to the
probable legislation ofthe'approachlng
session of congress, "that anything
will be done aside from passing me
usual appropriation bills. It will be a
shoe session and It will afford no time
In which to consider other matters. As
to the iJlngley bill, what Is there In the
present condition to make It any more
acceptable or necessary than It was
last session? I do not see anything In
the line of revenue legislation can be
accomplished at this Besslon of con
gress." lilseusslng plans for raising revenue.
Senator Jones advanced several Inter
esting propositions. "Many of the
manufacturers," he said, "who support
ed McKlnley will doubtless be sur
prised at the character of the bill that
will be presented to the country. The
conditions that existed when the Mc
Klnley bill of ISttO was passed were
very different from those that will con
front congress when It comes to deal
with the question. Then there was a
surplus to be dissipated; now there Is a
formidable deilolency to be considered.
That will make necessary a radically
different sort of measure.
"For myself, I should support and
vote for a bill to Increase the tax on
beer by $1 a barrel. In the first place,
the alcohol in beer does not pay an
equal tax with that In whisky, and In
the second place it Is a tax that can
be easily borne. I do not think that
tobacco should be taxed to any greater
amount than is now levied; It is the one
thing that the poor man almost uni
versally uses, and he should be spared
an additional import. The same thing
Is true of coffee, and in a loss degree
of tea. and for that reason I do not fa
vor taxes on them. The beer tax snould
be an independent proposition It will
add :IO,000.000 to the revenues, and if
it be put in a bill by Itself the money
would come in at once.
"As to the Income tax, I have not
examined the decision of the supreme
court with a view to determining
whether or not a measure could be
passed which would produce revenue
for that source without waiting for an
amendment to the constitution. A per
capita tax might bo levied, but I am
opposed . to taxing property. I think
the property and wealth of the country
should bear the cost of the government.
Of course, the poor man receives just
ns much and the same benetits from
our institutions as the rich mnn, but
they tdiould be given to him just as
public schools are given to him."
"What will bi the policy of the
Democratic committee. Senator? Will
it continue the fight as the Kepublican
committee are reported to have decid
ed to do, by maintaining headquarters
In the interim between campaigns and
educating the people by the Issue of
"That has not yet been officially de
cided," Senator Jones answered, "and
will not be until after a consultation,
the date of which has not been set
Med. It will probably not be until af
ter congress meets. But I think you
can say that that light will be kept up
until the issue has been fought out."
"When will that be?"
"When the people of the United States
have expressed their opinion directly
upon the question of restoring silver
to the position It occupied prior to
1873. The platform "of the-Republican
convention was a straddle it did not
declare for the single gold standard, but
only for Its maintenance until bimetal
lism could be secured by international
agreement. I have been assured since
the election by Republicans, gome of
wide reputation, that thousands of
them voted for Major McKlnley be
cause they believed him to be a bime
tallism and that as much would be
done, for silver under his administra
tion as could be accomplished were
Bryan to be elected. ' And U would be
secured, too, without danger" of dis
turbances that were feared in case of
Bryan's election. There was behind
Major McKlnley a large conservative
element which distrusted the radical
supporters of Bryan, afraid to trust
them with the administration of affairs.
But the Republicans are not united on
this question and they will have to
settle the matter for themselves be
tween now and 1900.
I am firmly convinced that a vast
majority of the people of this country
desire bimetallism, and if the Republi
cans place themselves squarely in line
for the gold standard, and the use of
silver as subsidiary coinage only, there
can be no doubt of the result of the
contest. We failed to elect Bryan this
year because the Republicans secured
the bulk of the artisan vote, and we
failed to convert1 enough of the farmer
vote to offset It. But they are coming
our way, and If Mr. Ilanna Is proceed
ing upon their track the farmer vote Is
lost to the Republicans. Why, there
can be no doubt of the Issue."

The Candidate Orator, However, De"
parts Tor Denver.
Lincoln, Nob.. Nov. 23. Health Of
ficer Rhodes this morning went out
to No. 1625 D street and tacked a quar
antine card upon Hon. W. J. Bryan's
house. Ruth, the 11-year-old daughter
of Mr. and (Mrs. Bryan, and the eldest
child In the household, is afflicted with
diphtheria and the usual precautionary
measures had to be taken by the au
thorities to prevent the spreading of
the disease. The doctors In attendance
pronounced the attack to be a slight
one, and have hopes of a speedy disap
pearance of the malady.
The quarantine will not materially af
fect Mr. Bryan's movevnients, nor did
it prevent his departure for Denver
at 6 o'clock this evening. He expects
to return Thanksgiving day, and if
possible will begin active work on his
forthcoming book.
Mr. and Mrs. Casper Labor ol Nes
quebonlnf Are th: Victims ol Mid
sight Marauders and Cut.tbroats.
Wilkes-Barre. Pa., Nov. 13. Themin
Ing town of Nesquehoning, in Carbon
county, was the scene of the wildest
excitement yesterday when It became
known that a terrible murder had been
committed, the victim being Mrs. Cas
per Laboy and her husband. The for
mer was instantly killed and the lat
ter fatally wounded.
The prepetrators of the crime are
three unknown Hungarians who were
arrested by a number of citizens while
In the attempt to make their escape,
and had it not been for the interfer
ence of the coal and iron police all
three would have been lynched. The
prisoners were taken to Mauch Chunk
and are now in jail awaiting a hear
ing. The Laboys have always been looked
upon as upright hard working people,
and during the past ten years have
accumulated quite a snug sum of
money. To secure their hard-earned
earnings which were supposed to be
hidden in their home, the murderers en
tered the house at an early hour in
the morning. On hearing their foot
steps Mrs. Laboy became aroused and
awakened her husband. A moment lat
er and at the Hight of one of the in
truders Laboy jumped from his bed
and a scuttle ensued, but before he
could do anything the three grabbed
him and In an Instant he lay prostrated
on the floor. Mrs. Laboy started for the
street to give an alarm, but before she
reached the foot of 'the stairs she was
overtaken by one of the Hungarians,
who with a stunning blow burled the
blade of a stiletto deep Into her breast,
causing almost Instant death. The rob
bers then became alarmed on hearing
a noise 011 the outside-, and before es
caping from the residence they slashed
Laboy with their knife in a most hor
rible manner, leaving him, as they
supposed, dead on the floor.
When It became known that a mur
der had been committed a posse of
citizens was formed and a thorough
search was made for the assassins.
Every foot of ground was gone over in
the neighborhood, and on reaching an
old shanty near the railroad station,
they found three burly looking Hun
garians. They were spattered With
blood and each had the appearance of
being able to speak English aha it
was all the officers could do to keep
the people from stringing th.un to a
Thinks that Democrats Will Get To
gether at Next Campaign.
New York, Nov. 23. Richard Croker,
since his return from Europe Saturday
has persistently refused to be Inter
viewed on the political situation. .This
morning, however, he talked on the
outlook for next year. He said: "From
all that I have heard I believe Tam
many will present a solid front In the
next campaign. The Indications are
that all Democrats will get together
for the local ficht next year and I am
confident they will do so.
The people know by this time that
Tammany can give to the city a bet
ter and more economical administration
than the Republicans have done and
the sentiment seems to be in favor of
a united Democracy next year."
Mr. Croker declined to express any
opinion on the course of Tammany in
the last campaign.

New iork Morgue.
Trenton, N. J., Nov. 23. Two thou
sand persons called at the city morgue

Twenty-three Men Taken from the
Rigging of the San Benito.
Point Arena, Cal., Nov. 23. After
clinging to the rigging of the wrecked
steamer San Benito twenty-seven
hours, twenty-three men were rescued
by the steamer Wrott this morning and
transferred to the steamer Point Arena,
which took them to Mendocino. T'io
rescue, was a most hazardous under
taking. Repeated attempts were made
to reach the wreck, but the sea was
so rough that it was impossible for a
boat to live In It. After midnight, how
ever, the waves began to abate and a
boat from the steamer Wrott. after the
greatest difficulty, reached the wreck.
The unfortunate sailors were almost
exhausted and had to be assisted into
the boat. Twelve men were trans
ferred to the Wrott and the boat re
turned for the others, they too safely
reaching the steamer, making a total
of thirty-five saved, eight perishing.
The wreck was watched by the peo
ple on shore, who kept huge bonfires
blazing all night and pu trolled the
beach to render all the assistance In
their power, but all efforts to get a line
off to the wreck were fruitless.

many minor or state celebrations to

way, today's celebration Is unique, the
New Jersey shaft, unlike the various
regimental markers on the battle field
being designed rather as a memorial
to the valor of her -sons In battle,
though more specifically as a memorial
to the Thirty-third and Thirteenth reg
iments. The Thirteenth did no actual
fighting at Chattanooga but was held
in reserve.
The ceremony began at 2 o'clock this
