New York State Chairman Declares

NEW YORK. Oct. SI. (Precis!.) Stats
Chairman William J. Conners. after
eirnest but unavailing efforts to Indues
leading Democrat from other sections of
tha country to come Into New York, has
given up the attempt In despair.
"Hearst may absorb an the local Issues,
but I am going to put some National
Finger Into this fight or know the reason
why." he declared. Now he knows the
reason why. for everyone of his Invita
tions hag been courteously spurned.
John Sharp Williams. Congressman
from Mississippi and the rvemocratio
leader in the House, positively declined
to consider It Hearst has roasted him
for several years and ths two do not
Called Bailey Standard Oil Lacker
Senator Joseph Ballsy, of Texas, the
biggest Democrat in the Upper House. Is
another man who doesn't like Hearst.
The latter has called hlrn a Standard Oil
lackey, and assailed him strenuously In
Mayor Edward F. Dunne, of Chicago,
who was warmly supported by Hearst a
year ago. is now on ths outs with htm.
That Is because the Independence League
Is running an Independent ticket In Chi
cago. William Jennings Bryan, soon after ths
nomination, offered to come Into the state
n1 ma.ke a few speeches "If National Is
sues were involved." But the Gllsey
House crowd have made It. clear that
they do not want him. "We can win
without his aid" Is the way they put It.
"His coming here would not bring Hearst
a vote, and he'd claim all the credit in
case of victory."
Governor Folk, of Missouri, is too busy
to speak. Besides he don't like Hearst.
Tom Taggart. chairman of the National
committee, cannot think of words hard
enough to say about the Democratic can
didate for Governor. They got Into a
snarl over Taggart' s gambling-house at
French Lick Springs, whloh was "ex
posed" a few days after Taggart declared
Gompsrs Working Against Hearst.
Samuel Gompers, head of the American
Federation of Labor. s quietly working
against Hearst. Gompers tried to beat
Congressman Llttlefleld. of Maine. In Sep
tember. Llttlefleld's opponent. MoGllll
cuddy, was a delegate to the Democratic
National Convention in 1904 and voted for
Alton B. Parker. Hearst is accused of
sending men and emissaries to Maine to
help Llttlefleld in his fight.
George Fred Williams, the most pic
turesque New England Democrat of re
cent years. Is sulking Hearst's man. John
B. Moran. won the Democratic nomina
tion for Governor of Massachusetts, and
Williams has practically been kicked out
of the organization. You could not hire
him to speak here.
Some of the National committeemen
who have pronounced grouches on. so far
as the head of the New York State ticket
Is concerned, are Norman E. Mack. New
York; Roger Sullivan. Illinois; William A.
Gaston. Massachusetts; W. B. Gourley,
New Jersey, and J. M. Guffey, of Penn
sylvania. Mack's friends in Buffalo are
in open revolt because of the Independ
ence League county ticket there, and It
Is expected that Mack will vote for
Hughes, although he means to keep quiet
about It to retain his regularity.
Sullivan I'ses Awful Language.
Roger Sullivan is fighting Hearst and
Bryan simultaneously, and the words he
used to describe the "idol of the people."
In conversation with Chairman Conners
the other day, would make an ordinary

bosh" In Massachusetts, and does not like

Democrat who talked for Hearst would
feel the weight of his wTath. The only
outsiders who will consent to come into
the state compose the little knot of Rep
resentatives known at Washington as
"Hearst Congressmen." And they are
few in numbers.
After he had carefully looked over the
field. Mr. Conners authorized the follow

"Eut Mr. Hearst is standing on his
own personal platform."
"Of course, of course." said Connors
hurriedly. "But our platform is in his
platform. See?" And the state chair
man, with this far from lucid explanation
of the situation, hurried away.
Watson Essays an Explanation.
Billy Watson. sergeant-aUarms of the
state committee, who fills the same posi
tion with the Democratic minority in the
House at Washington during the sessions
of Congress, then tried to explain the
"Everj body knows where Hearst
stands. " he volunteered "He is a Demo
cratthe best kind of a Democrat but
he has issues of his own Do you under
stand? Now he is standing on his own
platform, and he has a perfect right to
do so, but he Indorses every word in the
Democratic platform every word.
"You see. any Democrat can indorse
everything that Mr. Hearst indorses,
and. of course, he can indorse every
thing that any Democrat indorses.
That's why he is on both tickets."
Then Mr. Watson mopped his brow
Platforms Are at Variance.
"But the two platforms do not agree."
the interviewer pointed out. "And Mr.
Hearst he declared in favor of expan
sion, a larger' Navy, protection and a
number of other things which the Dem
ocratic National Convention declared
"Ah." retorted Mr. Watson, trium
phantly, "but -you see we are running
this fight on state issues. Those sub
jects really do not matter in an election
"But the Independence League plat
form differs radically from the Demo
cratic state platform adepted at Buf
falo." "Of course It does." replied Mr. Wat
son, "but you see Mr. Hearst Is running
on his own personal platform, and of
course that includes both of the others "
And that is about ns much as any of
Mr. Hearst's supporters will say upon
the subject. Meanwhile outside Demo
crats are conspicuous by their absence.
Act-tally, they seem to shun K'.r York,
although the city is a very, attractive
place at this season of the year.

III INSANE ANTICS
Washington County Woman Is
Suffering From Intense Re
ROLLS STRIPPED ON FLOOR
Daughter Seems to Be Affected in
Hypnotic Fashion After Visit to
"Healer" Holding Forth
HILLSEORO. Or . Oct 21. (Special ) A
strange case of temporary dementia, su
perinduced by religious hysteria. Is re
ported at Farmington. seven miles south
east of this cityt where a mother and
daughter are giving the neighborhood
considerable alarm over their actions.
The two cases are at the home of Charles
Morrlng, a farmer, and last evening the
patients became so violent that Dr. J.
P. Tamlesle, a Hillsboro physician, was
called to administer to them.
The doctor found the elderly woman,
Mrs. Anna Mack, hopelessly demented,
and the wife of Mr. Morring. who Is Mrs.
Mack's daughter, in a hypnotic or cata
leptic state, following the actions and
suggestions of the mother The physician
found the elderly woman beyond all
powers of reasoning, and unless there Is
improvement she will be brought Into
court for a test of her sanity.
Attend Healing Meeting.
The story leading up to- the deplorable
condition was given by the husband and
son-in-law. Mrs. Mack has been very
deaf for some years and the daughter and
wife has been suffering from a bone dis
ease in one of her limbs. This Fall Mrs.
Mack, who has always been of rather a
religious turn of mind, went to some of
the "healing meetings" held in a tent
on the East Side. Portland, and upon
her return she induced her daughter to
go with her to a ha!! on Sixth and Main
streets. Portland, where these healing
meetings are conducted by a man named
Sawtelle for treatment along religious and
Upon their return Mr. Morring says
that he noticed that his wife and mother-in-law
were more frequently in prayer
than formerly, and that Mis.-Mack was
the leader In the religious manifestations,
the daughter being more of a subject.
A day or so ago Mr. Morring became
alarmed when Mrs. Mack laid down by
the stove and declared that the Lord
commanded her to do so. The next day
Mrs Mack denuded herself of her cloth
ing, and It was then that the neighbors
were called in.
Rolls Like Holy Rollers.
The unfortunate elderly woman
would roll on the floor not dissimilar
to the Holy Roller contingent. She
would shriek. "Praise, the Lordl" and
the daughter, who remained in bed,
would assume" a devout attitude and
echo the elderly woman's words with
violent laughter. Mr. Morring says
that never before were the women in
such a deplorable condition, and the
first few days he did not look upon
their actions with any particular dis
favor, thinking it religious fervor.
The attending physician separated
the two women, and then found that
the daughter was able to converse in
telligently, from time to time, until
the mother would again enter the
room. He found'that when the mother
would make motions, the daughter
would follow the suggestion, and that
when the mother would pray the
daughter would assume a position of
adoration, -with clasped hands, devout
ly looking into space.
Dr. Tamlesie thinks this is a case
that requires the attention of the State
Board of Health, and also the State
Medical Board, if not the peace author
In Devotions for Hours.
According to Mr. Morring's story,
the two women, when in Portland at
the healing meeting, went into a room
upstairs and prayed for hours, al
though he was not with them at the
time. The physician thinks that the
daughter would soon regain her nor
mal mental condition, provided the in
fluence of the mother were removed, as
the young woman's condition is the re
sult more of the law of hypnotic sug
gestion than from a purely mental dis
turbance. Another daughter of Mrs. Mack is
expected at the Morring home any
day, and the husband has been ad
vised to remove the mother-in-law to a
place of safety before there are fur
BELIEVE IX POWER OF PRATER
Superintendent of Missionary Alli
ance Denies Teaching Fanaticism.
C. D. Sawtelle. superintendent of the
Christian and Missionary Alliance, whose
meetings are held in a hall at the corner
of Sixth and Main streets, declared last
night that he did not remember anyone
by the name of Mack or Morring having
been to see him.
"Two women were at one of our Friday
afternoon meetings several weeks ago."
said Mr. Sawtelle, "and thev told me
they were from Farmington. I could
see that they were inclined to be radical,
and if they had been given the least bit
of encouragement would no doubt have
gone farther with outward signs than
we go. While we believe that the sick
are cured by Jesus Christ now Just the
same as during the time he was on earth,
we do not have any fanaticism about
our teachings. We simply believe in the
power of prayer."

LORDS ARE VERY STUBBORN
Controversy With Commons Over
LONDON. Oct. 21 Parliament reassem
bles next Tuesday, with two vexatious
controversies before it. and the meeting
promises to attract renewed attention to
publio questions The session will be
marked by two conflicts, one being in the
House of Lords and one in the House of
Commons, over the education bill, and the
other between the government and labor
party over the workmen's compensation
During the recess now coming to a close
the Socialistic, wing of the labor party
has opposed the government's candidate
and the political measure is considered
something of a test of the government's
ability to hold the support of the labor
members of the House of Commons.
The controversy between the House of
Lords and the House, of Commons over
the education bill may lead to serious
consequences, and possibly cause an ap
peal to the country, for the two houses
are apparently irreconcilable over the
measure. The House of Lords shows lit
tle disposition to yield to the lower
house, and the main purpose of the bill,
that of giving the country a better educa
tional system, is for the time being for
gotten in the intensity of the strife be
tween the two houses.
The Irish question is a slumbering vol
cano which may break out at any mo
ment, but there is believed to be a tacit
understanding that it will go over to the
next session for full discussion.
CHANGES IX EXGLISH CABINET
Campbell-Bannerman Soon to Be
Raised to Peerage.
LONDON, Oct. 21. According to the
Morning Post, the close of the Autumn
or the beginning of the next session of
Parliament Is likely to see Important
changes in the Cabinet. Sir Henry
Campbell-Bannerman. the Premier,
probably will be raised to the peerage,
and will lead the Liberals In the House
of Lords, remaining, however, as Pre
mier. This would enable the aged
Marquis of Ripon to retire as Liberal
leader in the House of Lords, and H.
H'. Asquith would become Liberal leader
in the House of Commons.
Chief Secretary for Ireland Bryce is
also expected to go to the House of
Lords, succeeding the Marquis of Ripon
as IOrd of the Privy Seal, and Winston
Churchill will enter the Cabinet as
Chief Secretary for Ireland.

SANTA FE. N. M . Oct. 21.-Herbert J.
Hagerman. the young and handsome Gov
ernor of New Mexico, was discovered by
President Roosevelt. Strange as it may
seem. Hagerman was not one of tha
Rough Riders, and he never saw San
Juan Hill. He went to Washinuton to
push through the statehood bill, saw tha
President, and impressed him. He was
not a candidate for Governor. The Pres
ident gave him the place and upset tha
plans of many old-time politicians.
Governor Hagerman sat at his desk in
the little capitol at Santa Fe the other
day and discussed the statehood question.
It was pleasant to see the flash of his ey
when he listened to the tales of Arizona
politicians regarding New Mexico and her
motives In working for Joint Statehood.
Will Not Assume Repudiated Debt.
"They tell me in Arizona." I said, "that
the reason why Kew Mexico is so anxious
to marry Arizona Is that the new state,
will be forced to assume the repudiated
debt of New Mexican counties, which
amounts to $rjfl0,ono or more."
"That." replied Governor Hagerman.
coolly, "is a it- it is an Arizona lie. At
tempts have been made several times to
have the Legislature of New Mexico as
sume the debt of the county of Santa Fe.
and they have always failed. The mora
prosperous counties will not stand It.
Now. with the additional representation
of Arizona In the proposed State Legisla
ture, Is there any reason to think that tha
New Mexican counties can saddle their
debt upon the State?"
Public School System.
"They say also that New Mexico has
practically no public school system"
here Governor Hagerman sniffed "and
that denominational schools are essential
ly a part of the system, getting a shara
of the public money."
"The public schools of New Mexico ara
as good, as those of any State In tha
Union," said the Governor. "It is diffi
cult to be patient in the face of such will
ful misrepresentations. Now, as to tha
payment of public moneys to denomina
tional schools, I am not sure, but I shall
look it up."
He did so, upon the spot, and added: "I
find that with the exception of JWO given
to a hospital conducted by a sectarian,
society, but which Is open to everybody,
not a dollar of public money Is given to
any denominational institution. New?
Mexico has a population of about 300.000.
There are 900 school teachers and 40.01Y1
pupils. The receipts for school purposes
are $0O0OO a year, and the. value, of school
houses and furniture is JWXono."
"How about the speaking and teaching
of Spanish in the schools?"
"Spanish is spoken to a great extent,
of course." said the Governor. "Tha
Mexican population is about 60 per cent!
of the total. But every teacher is re
quired to speak the English language, an
English Is taught in every school. Within
10 years every child in New Mexico,
practically, will speak English. Mexican
parents are almost invariably anxious to
educate their children, and will go through;
great hardships to keep them in school.
Americans Will Soon Prevail.
"Great stress is laid upon the fact that
the Mexican population predominates In
this Territory." continued Governor Hag
erman. "It is true that it does now, but
it will not continue long. During the year
ended June 30, 1906. there were homestead
entries aggregating 1,115.575 acres In New
Mexico, and desert land entries aggregat
ing 150.S95 acres, practically all of this
land being taken up by American farmers
from Iowa. Nebraska, the Dakotas. Kan
sas and Oklahoma. As the lands to tha
eastward increase In price, the farmers
come West. They are pouring into tha
southern portion of this Territory, where
Irrigation enterprises are completed or
under construction. Within a few years
the Mexican population will be greatly In
the minority. Meanwhile. I deny that tha
Mexican farmer of New Mexico Is an ob
jectionable citizen. He Is orderly, hard
working, and patriotic."
"The people of Arizona think you ara
making a mistake in voting for joint
statehood here, when von know thav will
reject It," I suggested. "They say it !
oecause you ininK oy roiung up a big
vote for lointure VOU can induce Cnnere.a
to let you In as a separate state."
"Well, that's largely true." said tha
Governor. "I presume a large majority
of the voters of New Mexico reason that
a heavy vote in favor of joint statehood
will hav a good influence on Congress.
I think so myself. It will show that when
an opportunity was offered to us we did
the best we could to avail ourselves of it.
On our part, of course, we think Arizona
