A alf! of relief went tip throughout
the land when tho report that eonie
school children In New Yoik'a great east
side were starWtig, that they enmo to
their lessons "weak nnd wan" from
hunger and sick enough sometimes "to
faint," was quickly followed by a de
nial. Starvation Is nn awful word.
Very few of the billions nnd billions of
, human !clngs who crnno nnd go ever
grasp Its meaning literally. In nil times
nnd under nil conditions the fullness
of tho earth Is garnered nnd distrib
uted to the end that no one, not even
the unworthy, shall meet hunger face
to face. Nevertheless tlw word stann.
tlon has acquired such n inenulug that
nt tho bare suggestion of n lack of
bread nnynhero the hands of tho se
curely fortunate nre open with relief
In Now York money was turned nnny,
en little ns really needed to bnnSh
want from the poorest tenements.
Every big city nnd every remote dls.
trlct In this country hns food enough to
supply every mouth In It, even ntlovvlna
for thoeo who overent. In New Yolk
city during the growing season nnd
lerhnts nil the year round there In
enough unsold produce dumped out ns
garbage nnd nt nil times enough un
touch'-d bread nnd meat In opulent
families going to vrnste to feed nil the
poor within tho tinintclpnllty. And If
nny poor happen around when the tin
used stuff Is being disposed f they get
nil they enn carry nvvny. The trouble
Is to bring the needy mouths nnd the
surplus fnoil together nt the right tln.c
And the trouble In seeing to It that
there shall bo none weak nnd wnn nnd
sick enough to fnlnt from hunger Is the
getting nt tho enses of need, so rr.ro
nrc they nnd so widely scntten-l.
Wholesale plans of relief often fp i lo
calise peoplo not In lictsl nre too 'llllnR
to lc fed by charity. In this w? that
word charity has become nlmott ns ter
rlblo ns tho word stnrvntlon. Pome
hungry ones will prefer slnrvntlon to
nsklng or even ncccptlng charity for
fear they will lie looked upon ns frauds
nnd pnrnsltcs. It Is depressing to know
that thcro can ls no permanent tnro
of theso occnslon.il cases of hunger nnd
even of the threat 'of starvation. Hut
It Is well (lerhnps that these talcs of
want should ls published, even Willi
exaggerations. It seta us nil to thln'

When the Idea of mniiunl tmlnli'

the courses have bivn completed the

which carries with It an ollUlnl guar

fur cry from our half developed trade
schools to the higher trade education

This position of the delegation was
announced at the conclusion of tho

Georgia csme to Denver expecting to
find an anti-Bryan standard about
which they could gether with other op
pottruj delegations, the unlnstructed
delegation from New York having been
looked forward to as among the op
position factors. Finding New Tork
Inactive, however, the delegation has
practically announced that It will not
bo "left alone In a wilderness."
The delegation enthusiastically in
dorsed Clsrk Howell for the vice presi
dency and determined to present his
name to the convention and to start
an active campaign In hla behalf. Mr.
Howell also was named to succeed
himself on the national committee.

HELD FOR WIFE'S DEATH.
Man Alleged to Have Sent Peleon te
Dr. Wil.on Arraigned on Charge of
Being Accessory to Csuse of Young
Woman'e Taking Off Hs Is be
lieved to Be Able to Prove Alibi In
Regard te Other Charge.
Philadelphia. July 7. Though the)
police pretend to believe that Freder
ick Glcs, Jr., arrested as a suspect la
the case, knows something about tt
murder of Dr. William H. Wilson of
this city, who died on June 20 after
drinking bottle of ale containing
cyanide of potassium, developments
teud to show that the authorities hare
blundered In tba matter and that Glee
finds himself lu his embarrassing po
sition as the Tl ".ult ot his efforts to
protect the name ot his young wife.
Gles was arraigned today for a
hearing on the charge of being an ac
cessory In the death ot his wife.
The records at the bureau ot health
show that Mrs. Gles died on June 19
and that her Infant babe died the day
previous. To connect Gles with the
sending ot poisonous ale to Dr. Wil
son the authorities will have to as
sume that Gles knew four days 'be
fore that time that hla wife was going
to die, for on June 15 the man who
sent the poisoned alo to Dr. Wllaoa
purchased from William Olmstead at
the Keystone Type foundry a letter
"8" from a font ot type known ss
"Stuyvosant" and which letter wa
used as a seal atamp by the murderer
who prepared the bottle ot ale sent to
the physician. That Gles did not pur
chase this letter "S" seems certain,
for Olmstead felled to Identify him at
police headquarters as the customer
who ordered the type.
Ceuld Net Hsve Bant Letter.
More than this, Gles was at hts
place of employment on Bat jay
morning, June 37, or the day aft V Dr.
It was on this day that a Utter waa
mailed to Coroner Jermon from Bris
tol. Pa., In which the supposed mur
derer told why he had sent the poteen.
This letter was mailed during the aft
ernoon, and In, their efforts to trao
the movements of the writer ot the
letter the police ascertained that the
supposed murderer reached Bristol.
Pa., at 12:47 p. m. The train left
Torresdale at 12:55. Superintendent
John B. Wlllllama of the Curtis Pub
lishing company, where Gles was em
ployed as foreman ot the overlay de
partment, says that QUs left the of
fice between 11:80 and 1143 a. m. on
that day, and It would have been Im
possible for him to hare reached Tor
resdale, which is a suburban point
more than an hour's ride from the
center of the city, In time to purchase
a ticket and catch the train for New
York. Mr. Williams also says that he
does not think Gles capable of con
ceiving such a clever plan to kill any
one and that he could not have car
ried It Into effect without assistance.
Fred ' Buckman, the express, clerk
who received from the supposed mur
derer the package which contained
the poisoned ale sent to Dr. Wilson,
received a letter In which be Is ad
vised to go slow In attempting to Iden
tify any one as the person who sent
the bottle of ale. "The outcome of
the Wilson case seems likely to de
pend very largely upon your testi
mony," says the writer, "and I hope
you will go very slow Indeed In Idea
tlfylng anybody In the matter,
"It would be awful to send any nn
to the gallows for putting such a man
as Wilson out of business."
Buekmsn confronted Glea at the
city hall, but refused to positively
Identify the prisoner as 'the man who
left the package of ale at the express
