lence. He said:
"The royal young Idiot, whose heart
has not been touched by Ferrer's
daughter's tears or the indignant pro
tests of the civilized world, Is nn as
sassin. He will end like his neighbor,
Portugal's royal hog. He signed his
own condemnation to death this morn

man of heart in the whole world will
shed a tear over the royal carrion."
The article concluded with an appeal

Secretary Wilton Sees Examples of
Poor Farming In New York State.
mica, N. Y., Oct. 14.-Sccrctary or
Agriculture Wilson Is making an au
tomobile tour of New York state for
tho purpose of discovering If possible
why there are so many abandoned
farms In the state and what plan can
bo adopted to remedy this condition,
which appears to be alarming.
Secretary Wilson said that in the
trip from Albany to Utlca he had nev
er seen so many examples of poor
farming. The farms wore all right, he
was convinced, but the farmers were
"It was n beautiful country that wo
passed through," he said, "but the
farms generally did not show prosper
ity. I saw hardly any sheep on the
hillsides. Next to the cow the sheep Is
the most profitable domestic animal.
Many of the districts looked depopu
lated. We saw plenty of children in
the villages, but few in the rural re
gions. The country looks deserted. In
fact, interest in agriculture appears to
have declined in New York state to a
great extent."

Mrs. Clarence Mackay Out
Against Militant Methods.
Says It Is Not Necessary to Go Out
on Street Corners and Shriek
Out Propaganda to the
New York, Oct. 14. Mrs. Clarence
H. Mackay, president of the Equal
Franchise society, announces that she
will refuse to Introduce Mrs. Pank
hurst, the English suffragette, when
the latter appears In Carneglo hall to
advocate nn aggressive crusade for
woman suffrage.
Mrs. Mackay at the same time issued
a statement defining the purposes and
the position of the Equal Franchise
society, In which she deplores militant
methods and declares that the move
men for franchise for women is not
t fight for rights, but merely the log
ical evolution of Justice. The state
ment In part says:
"Wo feel that to secure the franchise
for women It Is not necessary for us
to imitate methods which are being
used In other countries. AVc shall
achieve our nlm without sensational
ism. I will not Indorse tho militant
methods, It has not seemed necessary
in the past and 1 do not think It will
be necessary In the future for us to go
out to the street comers and shriek
out tlie propaganda to the passerby.
"Wo do not think that as an organ
ization wo have a right to demand nn
expression of opinion from the candi
dates at this coming election. We
prefer to leave politics alone until
our sex is sharing tne respousiuimy
with the other sex. I feel that the
main reason for suffrage Is community
of interest between tho sexes. It is
not in any sense a fight for rights, but
the logical evolution of Justice.
"Si has been repeatedly paid to me
by men In public life and men in pri
vate life that when the women of the
United Stntes unite In demanding the
vote they will get It. And I think that
Is perfectly true and that therefore
what Is needed to further the suffrage
cause is to give all sorts and kinds of
women the opportunity of listening to
speakers who will explain Just what
the suffrage will mean to us all.
"Wo have but to plead our cause
without raising our voice to those men
and women who are not with us. We
can always assume that they are not
willfully ignorant of what woman suf-
rage should mean. We want them to
appreciate the fact that throughout
this country the strongest suffragists
are these women who devote their best
energies toward tho developing of their
children In order to make them citi
zens worthy of our great country.
"Among the most recent additions to
our membership are .Mrs. William
Schielllln, Mrs. Milton Barger, Mrs.
Rudolph Sfhirmer, Mrs. Archibald Al
exander, Mrs. Everett Colby, Mrs.
Richard Stevens, Mrs. Walter May
nard, Miss Sponce, Mrs. Paul Morton,
Miss Elizabeth Burchenal and Miss
Dorothy Whitney."

Justice Trenchard Blames Police and
Calls For Indictments.
Mays Landing, N. J., Oct. 14. Jus
tice Thomas Trenchard In his charge
to tho grand Jury, of which Captain
John L. Young, tho Atlantic City finan
cier and hotel man, is foreman, said:
"There can be no excuse for failure
to enforce the law In Atlantic City. A
rofusal of the grand Jury to Indict all
offenders breeds contempt for tho ad
ministration of Justice, which Is a fore
runner of anarchy and tends to the de
struction of civil liberty.
"The prosecutor will present to you
evidence of gambling in Atlantic City.
Much of it relates to gambling houses
conducted so openly ns to be notorious.
He will exhibit to you faro and rou
lette wheels, chips and other gambling
Instruments seized on raiding the
houses; he wltl show you the actual
money in large sums which the gam
blers were using in their play. Such
evidence will require Indictments at
your hands.
"It will also be your duty to Investi
gate a riot which occurred in Atlantic
Clfy. There will be evidence tending
to show that state detectives employed
by the prosecution were mobbed on
the public streets by rioters armed
with revolvers and clubs.
"The prosecutor's men were pursued
through five city blocks by the mob,
and many shots were fired. The prose
cutor has evidence that the mob was
Incited and led by members of the At
lantic City police force. Tho gravity
f this charge is apparent.
"If the police of Atlantic City are to
be permitted to drive out olllccrs en
gaged In executing state warrants
what Is to become of the personal se
curity and property of citizens?"

men or their sympathizers, and one
was knocked Into the river. He was
rescued by the harbor master.
Others of the crew were attacked
upon the street, and several of them
were roughly handled. The crew was
escorted to the Wabash depot by the
Captain Grubb of the Pelee light

up the yawl from the Stone and also

said tho boiler went wrong in the gale,

ageable, ner anchors were dropped,
but failed to hold her. Sho caught
firo forward, and her cabins were
burned off.
Says Son's Dismissal Was a "Frame
up" on Secretary Knox's Part.
Chicago, Oct. 14. Richard T, Crane,
president of the Crane company and
father of the deposed minister to Chi
na, Charles H. Crane, denounces the
discharge of his son as an outrage and
tho result of a plot.
"It is the most outrageous thing I,
over heard of," said Mr. Crane. "It is
absolutely unreasonable and a burning
shame. They never even gave the boy
a decent chance. Ho had no Instruc
tions whatever. There is certainly
something behind It. The reasons ad
vanced for requesting Charlie's resig
nation are not the real ones, I am con-
vlnced. It is surely n plot of some
"Yes," he continued as some one
suggested the word to him, "It must be
a 'frameup.' That's all there is to it.'

Even Money That He Will Knock Out
Ketchet In Fifteen Rounds.
San Francisco, Oct. 14. Both Jack
Johnson and Stanley Ketchel have fin
ished training for tho championship
fight on Saturday afternoon. Johnson
will weigh 105 pounds in the ring,
which is lighter than he was In the
fight with Burns. Ketchel will weigh
170 pounds.
Some of Ketchel's admirers fear he
Is carrying too much weight, but Wil
lie Britt says Ketchel was never better
in wind than now.
While Ketchel Is much stronger than
In his last fight with Papke, Sam Fltz
patrlck, who has kept his eyes open
during the negro's training, said:
"Jack was never in better condition
than now. Yet these people who talk
about a short fight arc mistaken. John
son is naturally cautious, and he won't
take any chances with such a power
ful hitter as Ketchel. I should not bo
surprised to see the fight go beyond
fifteen rounds, and, though Ketchel Is
sure to be cut up, Johnson may win
only on points."
Betting on the fight remains tho
same as for the last ten days, 10 to 4
on tho result and even money that
Johnson will knock out Ketchel Inside
of fifteen rounds. Although there are
many who claim to like Ketchel's
chances, they do not come up with
their coin.
Assistant District Attorney Says Judge
Aided Race Track Men.
Now York-, Oct. 14. In a signed
statement Assistant District Attorney
Robert H. Elder of Brooklyn corrobo
rated the charge made by William M.
Ivins that Justice Gnynor. Democratic
candidate for mayor, conspired and
consulted with Senator Patrick II.
McCarren and Eugene Wood to nullify
the race track anti-gambling law.
Elder charges that Justice Gnynor
plotted with Wood, a political lobby
ist, and McCarren, political boss and
race track patron, to bring up an "ar
rnnged." or test, case on a habeas
corpus writ to be heard before Gny-
nor. on which a decision would bo
handed down legalizing tho laying
down of bets.
That the efforts of Elder and his
assistants to have a real 'case on which
to obtain a decision were foiled by the
race track forces Is charged by Elder,
who tells lu detail of tho plotters'
struggle to have Gnynor personally
pass upon any "arranged" nctlon.
Elder savs further that he heard
from two sources, one of which, he
says, is a public official, that Gaynor
had been in conference with McCar
ren and Wood nnd that Gaynor's ac
tions In cases antedating the race track
litigation made Elder suspicious of the
Justice's Interest In tho litigation.

Patrick H. McCarren, the Democratic
party leader of Brooklyn, has beea
suddenly eliminated from further par
ticipation In the heated political cam
paign by an acute attack of appendi
citis which required an Immediate op
eration. He was taken ill while at work 1b

tel and was removed at once to St
Catherine's hospital in Brooklyn,
where an operation was performed.
SENATOR P. H. M'CAitriiJii..
His condition is extremely critical, and
the doctors say they fear be cannot re
cover. Senator McCarren had been very
conspicuous In the political fights now
on, and his loss to the Democrats as a
campaign manager is very serious.
McCarren's lieutenants were shocked
at the suddenness of his attack, and
realizing the Importance of bavins an
Immediate substitute to take up the
leadership Arthur C. Salmon, treasurer
of tho Kings county Democratic com
mittee, issued a call for a meeting of
the county executive committee today
to take action on the matter.
Senator McCarren had not been well
for three or four days, but had kept
' the fact from all but his most Intimate
better in his life."
After attending a mooting of the
Democratic executive committee the
senator was taken very 111 at his hotel.
Dr. Blerwlrth made a quick examina
tion and diagnosed the trouble as
acute appendicitis. Senator McCarren
then asked that his personal physician,
I Dr. Peter Hughes, be sent for. Dr.
i Hughes corroborated Dr. Rierwlrth's
diagnosis, and the two physicians to
gether advised that an operation be
performed immediately.
A taxicab was called and Senator
McCarren placed inside and driven to
the St. Catherine's hospital. The phy
sicians at the hospital agreed with
those who had previously examined
the senator that an operation was

McCarren, who Is now eighty-four
years old, lives in the family home at

been 111 nnd falling rapidly for a long
time, and the family did not think It
advisable to tell her of her son's Ill
ness. An aunt of tho senator, Mrs.
Bernard J. McCann, and his nephews,
David nnd Edward McCarren, with
their sister, went to tho hospital nnd
remained there waiting for news.
