Jamestown, N. Y., Nov. 1. Governor
Roosevelt) finished the next to the last
day of his New York state tour In this
city tonight, after having traveled
through five counties, making -fifteen
(speeches during the day.
The two stops where the most time
Wus spent were Dunkirk and James
town. His speches during the day and
at both of these cities were flavored
with attacks on Richard Croker and
National Chairman Jones for their al
leged utt'ltudc on the counting of the
hallots which Governor Koosevelt diag
nosed as an incitement to violence. At
hotli Dunkirk and Jamestown and es
pecially in the latter place tonight
there were immense audlcnccr.
At Dunkirk, where three meetings
were held, the governor, in addressing
the first, an opening air meeting in
front of the Brooks Locomotive works,
which suspended work in order to give
the employes an opportunity to hoar
him, replied to Mr. Bryan and said
among other things:

By Exclusive Wir from The Aoclated I'resa.
New York, Nov. 1. The death of the
wealthy William Marsh Rice at his
Madison avenue apartments on Sept.
23; the attempt of his New York attor
ney, Robert T. Patrick, to cush checks
for large amounts which purported to
be signed by the millionaire; the re
fusal of one bank to cash the checks
drawn on It and tho discovery by the
bank officials that Mr. Itlce was lying
at tho time tho checks were presented,
the subseeiuont claim by Patrick that
Mr. Rice had made him by will the
trustee of his estate which amounts
to anywhere from $3,000,000 to ?8,000,000;
the charge of forgery both as regards
the checks and the will placed against
Patrick and Mr. Rice's valet, Churles
K. Jones; tho arrest of Patrick and
Jones and their lodgment In jail, have
kept New York interested for over a
month in what, by the developments of
today promises to become the most
celebrated of the many celebrated
crimes which the courts of this city
have been called on to Investigate.
The first incident which led up to to
day's climax was the fact disclosed
yesterday that Valet Jones had been
taken to tho district attorney's otilee
and tho subsequent rumor that he hud
made a confession to thu authorities,
before tho public had time to learn if
the report of a confession was true
came the more startling news that
during the night Jones had in his cell In
the Tombs attempted suicide by cut
ting his throat with a pen-knife, given
him, he says, by Attorney Patrick, also
confined in the Tombs and for the pur
pose of getting rid of witness to Pat
rick's alleged crime.
His crime, according to the confes
sion of Jones, parts of which the dis
trict attorney's office gave out today,
was nothing less than the murder ot
the millionaire by Attorney Patrick and
the purloining of valuable papers re
lating to the estate. The taking off of
Mr. Rice, says Jones, was done by tho
internal administering of some uolson,
supposedly mercury, and the final ap
plication of a towel saturated with
some anaesthetic, presumably chloro
form. The Conversation.
That portion of the confession which
has to do with the last moments of the
old man is the following, given out by
the authorities as coming from Jones,
the scene taking place In the apart
ments of the millionaire and 'he lvlng
sick In bed.
Mr. Rice said:
"I am very nervous, Mr. Patrick. I
wish you would not trouble me. Pleuse
"I have some salts here, Mr. Rice,
that will cure your nervousness."
He produced a bottle und uncorked It.
Tho contents sinelled to me like some
very strong liniment. Then Patrick
said to me:
"Got me a towel and a sponge."
I got him both. Then Patrick said:
"Jones, you have to leave."
I left. As I was leaving, Patrick said:
"I'll remain here until Mr. Rico gets
He closed tho door behind me.
I stood in tho hall for a few minutes
and soon I heard Mr. Rice laugh. I
thought this was queer, so I pushed
open the door. I saw Mr. Rico lying
on his hack in bed.
The towel that I hud given Putrlck
wuh wrapped around the sponge in a
cono shape. This cone was lying di-j-cctly
over Mr. Klce'e eyes and nose.
Patrick was pressing it down with
his right hand. PatrlcP did not st-o
mo, and, of course, Mr. Itlce could
not. After seeing what I had seen I
went and lay on my bed. Mr. Rico
grow very sick. Patrick wild to mo:
"Go get a doctor." T went for one.
Ho pronounced Mr. Rico dead. At
torney Patrick dentaa the statements
In the confession. Jones after his
suicidal nttempt was taken to llelle
vue hospital hastily summoned phy
sicians having Just been in time to
save from death through loss of blood.
At E o'clock the hospital surgeon said

Pittsburg, Nov. 1, With a grntetul
enthusiasm paBt nil precedents the
llfth Founder's Day of Carnegie Insti

around tho beautiful building nt Schen

The capacity of the music hall was
wholly Inadequate for tho crowd. Long
before any could hope to enter the ap
proaches to the building were overrun
and when at last the doors were opened
there was a crush that almost swept
away control. At least two thousand
people were turned away.
The exercises opened at 2 o'clock
with an organ solo, "Concert Fan
tasia," by Frederick Archer. After the
opening prayer by Rev. Lemuel C.
Barnes, Secretary Samuel Hardin
Church read letters of regret from
President William MeKinley and other
W. N. Frew, president of the board
of trustees, then introduced Wu Ting
Fang, Chinese minister to the United
States, in a well turned address. The
minister was greeted with prolonged
upplause. He said In part:
China has a great deal to leain from thla young
republic. I hope, however, that she will leain,
not tho arts of war, which have for tele need
and aim the destruction of life, but the arts uf
peace, which make for the happiness and wel
fare of the people. No nation can become really
Bicat by war. Title greatness does not lie in the
etent of territory nor in the strength of bat
talions, but in the character of the people. From
personal observation, I am Inclined to the belief
that the .Vmcilcan people posse's the clement
of national grealne.s in a hltrli degree. The test
of loftiness of character Is to pnwc$ boundless
power without .ibming it. Wealth is power.

New York, Nov. 1. About 1,300 peo
ple gathered at the rink in Brooklyn

muss meeting under the uusoices of
tho Brooklyn Central Labor union and

Ernest H. Crosby.
Mr. Mitchell was heartily cheered
when he wus introduced to tho audi

so many people and to receive the
compliments of those who nail pro
ceded him. He briefly told them tho
story of tho great striko in tho an
thracite regions, which ho called the
greutest strike for living wages ever
known In tho world, and labor had
won, not won by John Mitchell, but
by the brave men, boys and women of
the coal region. Those who lived In
the attics, he said, could not under
stand tho conditions which prevailed
in the coal region. There were 140,000
from all the countries of the world,
with racial and religious prejudice's,
and it was no easy matter fo organize;
such u body. They had .started with
S.O00 and In triirty-nlne days Mu.UOO

an Inaugural of better things.

doctors and two nurses and for theso
checked off from tho wages of tho
men $20,0U0 a year, puld $4,000 to ths

Pottsvlllo, Pa., Nov. 1. Ex-Postmaster
General Wanamaker, accompanied
by Rudolph Blankonburg, wound up
on all-day campaign In behalf ot the
anti-Quay legislative candidates in
Schuylkill county at a big meeting
here tonight. He left Philadelphia
this morning and upon his arrival at
Schuylklllhaven, where he was met by
a reception committee headed by ex
Judge Koch, entered a trolley car, In
which he was conveyed to the differ
ent points in the county where ho
Mr. Wanamaker's first speech of the
day was made at Orwigsburg at 11
o'clock this morning. He addressed
over 600 people at this point and at 1
o'clock spoke to 300 hundred at Schuyl
klllhaven. St. Clair was reached at 3
o'clock this afternoon, where 1,000 peo
ple crowded the opera house. An
hour later Mr. Wanamaker spoke to
250 people at Port Carbon. At 5 o'clock
more than 1,500 people attempted to
crowd Into the hall at Mlnersvllle and
at least 1,200 succeeded.
The meeting hero tonight was, in
point of numbers, the most successful
of the present campaign. Mr. AVana
mtiker. In all of his speeches during
the day discussed 'the question of
sending anti-Quay men to the legis
lature and advocated tho election of
the Democratic candidates for senator
and representative in preference to the
Republican candidates who are
claimed by the friends of ex-Senator
Quay as friendly to his re-election to
tho United States senate.
The Machine Out of Date. -
Mr. Wanamaker in his speech said,
The time has gone by when the machine which
ha-i disgraced the name of the Republican party
in Pcnnsyliania tan dictate to you or mc, or to
any uelf-respcuing man, what is or what hi not
"regular." 'the machlnc'ie claim to the posses
sion of the light to do this N as loudly made
now at it ever was, but it is met with both in
dignation anil ridicule, where not so loner ago it
was listened to with fear.
The men who seek to reilcem the Itepublicaii
paity of Pennsylvania, and tho goiernnient of
l'cniuyhanla fioni tho machine, arc not fighting
for spoils, but tigaimt a ciiminal oiganUallon
ulili h exist solely for spoils, and In so doing
makes no better u-.e of the Republican party's
name than Captain Kldd did of the flaif of Kiig
land when he laUed it over his pirate t-hlp.
All Pennsylvania, whether they be Republicans
or Democrats, m- Populists or ProlilbltlonMs,
have an equal interest as citlrcns in ?ood goi
ernment. It is not simply their right, but their
bounden duty to join hands for war upon the
machine, which represents only politics for
plunder. And this duty is doubly incumbent
upon Republicans, since it is their party, their
flag, that the machine drags in the mud.
Regularity that means treason to Republican
principals, tieachery to tho party's good pur
puses und assistance to those who prostitute
the partj's power and befoul Its name, is the
kind of regularity which a real Republican, for
his own and his partj's sake, will repudiate.

Efforts of Political Assassins to De

By Kxcluslie Wire from The Associated Press.
Lebanon, Pa., Nov. 1. For the flis4
tlmo in his life, ex-Senator Quay today
visited 'Lebanon and the occasion was
made a demonstrative one by his largo
following here. Ho was given a recep
tion, then a big street parade was held
In his honor, and he closed his visit
with a speech at a monster mass meet
ing tonight. The ex-senator in hl
speech said, In part:
"If the Republican party of Lebanon
county Is going to preserve its integ
rity, if It is not going to surrender to
tho enemy, you people in Lebanon
must get together. If the stato of af
fairs which exists In Lebanon existed
throughout tho United States, what
would become of tho election ot Me
Kinley and Roosevelt?
"I have been through this factional
warfare In Pennsylvania, limited some
times In extent, at others overspread
ing the state und union. It has to havo
an end. Men one year aro tearing each
other's throat, and a year or two after
wards tho'sume Republicans arc touch
ing elbows In a contest against the
common enemy. It Is necessarily so,
and it is not worth while here In Leb
anon county, because you differ as to
Dr. Gorberich and Dr. Weiss, to call
each other hard names and get sofur
apart that you can't get together again.
Soldiers here know what would become
of an army under simllarfcturcuni
stances. If any two wings of it in the
presence of an advancing enemy will
take to fighting each other they would
be lost, as you would bo destroyed In
The Regular Ticket.
"Without going into figures of my
own knowledge and .without .believing
any ono in advance can forecast any
political event that Is to happen In
the future, I will say that the regular
Republicans of Pennsylvania huva
nominated 1C3 men, including the) sen
ators to hold over who will go into
the Republican caucus at Harrlsburg
to nominate a United States senator
and to confer together and got to
gether upon all party questions. They
are men, all of whom viii be elected!
unless they are stabbed In the back
by political nssasslns."
"I don't know what the plan of tho
opposition Is. It was originally to do
feat tho regulars at the primaries.
They fulled. It is now to defeat as
many of them as possible at the eloc
tion in the hope of reducing the ag
gregato number below 128, which I
necessary to elect a senator. My judg
ment is that on next Tuesday wa -will
look out at the closing of tha
polls upon a list of not Icsi
than 150 men who will stand 'together
at Harrlsburg for the old Republican
party during the next session of thu
legislature. I wish you to bear tha
prediction In your memory and look
at It on Wednesday morning next."
