JJabcoclc May Become a Formidable
Candidate on Aceonnt of Ilia Bold
Stand for a New Deal
. and Revision.
"WASHINGTON, Nov. 8. An Interesting
feature of the Speakership contest is the
declaration of Representative Babcock
that the people desire to live under a
Republican administration in all its
"branches, and that the people expect
the Republican party in the next Con
cress to undertake tariff, revision. He
says that had the country elected a Dem- j
ocratic Congress It -would have prevented
tariff revision, but having elected a Re
publican Congress, it means that they,
want the tariff revised by its friends, and
an adjustment of an equitable nature to
Babcock has not announced himself as
a Speakership candidate, but his close
friends are advising members not to
commit themselves, . and there is a gieat
deal of talk in his favor. He is put in the
list of possible candidates along with
Cannon, Dalzell, Llttlcfield. Sherman and
Payne. If Babcock's candidacy is pushed
It will mean that he is being presented
by those Republicans who desire a mode
rate tariff revision. He is not as well
equipped for the Speakership as either
Cannon or Dalzell, Sherman or Llttle
lield, in so far as knowledge of the rules
and presiding over the house goes, and
ills candidacy .will be almost wholly !
pressed on the -ground that new deal j
and a ".turn down" of the old regime, I
which has dominated the affairs of the j
House for so many years, are demanded.
ROOSEVELT XOT BACK OF IT.
Payne and Xot President ' Wants
Southern Representation Reduced.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 8. Postmaster
General Henry C. Payne was obliged to
day to deny the story that the Presi
dent is seeking to reduce the represen
tation in the South in the next National
convention. Payne, -who, for a long time,
has been a member of the National com
mittee from "Wisconsin, has Insisted that
such reduction should be made, and sim
ply because he still insists upon it, al
though a member of the President's Cab
inet, the assertion has been made that
the President is also in favor of the
scheme. No matter what President
Roosevelt thinks of the subject, he would
not feel warranted in advocating It in
view of his" own position, and the proba
bility of his own nomination for Pres
ident. The plan for reduction of South
ern representation at the Republican Na
tional convention is gaining In strength,
and a practical man like the President
may believe that It would be a good thing
In order to stimulate Republican activ
ity in states -where negro domination is
not a menace, and where the negro vote
ls.jmot necessary for Republican success
in different Congressional districts. Every
body will recognize that the Republican
party of the South has been one simply
for the purpose of holding Federal pat
ronage, and for the money which dele
gates receive at National conventions.
This situation has become intolerable to
a great many men in the party and they
are making every effort to remedy it by
making Republican representation in Na-

tional conventions dependent upon Re

i Payne's Views at Length.
"WASHINGTON, Nov. 8. "There ia no
authority for coupling the name of the
President -with the statement published
today that the Administration is in fa,vor
of a change In the basis of and reduc
tion in the representation of the South--ern
States in National conventions arid
in the House of Representatives."
Postmaster-General Payne made' ttiie
statement today- as he left the White
House after a conference with the Presi
dent. "My position on the basis of represen
tation in Republican National conven
tions," continued Mr. Payne, "is -well un
derstood. For many years I have be
lieved that the present basis ' Is unfair
and an Improper one. I believ so now
and expect always . to believe so, and I
hope to eee that basis changed by the
next National convention. There is no
power to change. the basis of representa
tion, except by action of the convention
TRUST LEGISLATION SURE.
President Will Move Either at Short
or Long Session of Congress.
"WASHINGTON, Nov. 8. There will be
anti-trust legislation either , in the coming
short session of Congress or in the long
session of the next Congress, as the
President is fully convinced that the pres
ent laws can be greatly strengthened.
This view is entertained by Attorney
General Knox, his legal advisor, and hy
other prominent men, who have given the
subject consideration. The regulation of
great capitalist combinations is believed
to be feasible by legislation which will
be constitutional, and which will not de
stroy legitimate industry. This view the
President has expressed to a number of
Senators, and he has found them in ac
cord with him.

GRAVE COVERS SIN.
Woman in Omaha Chnrch Tragedy
Is Lajd to Rest.
OMAHA, Neb., Nov. 8. Straining every
nerve, and elbowing each other rudely In
order to gain admission to the German
Baptist Church, a great crowd of women
gathered this afternoon to attend the
funeral of Miss Augusta Busch, who, "with
Rev. W. C. Rabe, was found "dead In the
vestibule of the church last Tuesday
morning. The church was packed to suf
focation, and a long line gathered in
front of the church, unable to gain admis
sion. During the services-the crowd con
tinued to accumulate, and before the ser
mon had been concluded the street was
jammed with -people.
The funeral was under the auspices of
the church. Rev. Thomas Anderson, of
Calvary Baptist Church, conducted the
service. Mr. Anderson referred to the
tragedy in his sermon, saying:
"Many enemies of the Christian church
will make much of the fall of this man
and woman, but I prefer to overlook her
faults. She is more sinned against than
sinning, and whatever sin ehe committed
was atoned for by the years of self-sacrifice
that preceded it. All of us are weak,
and she -fell before temptation."
BABY IN BAGGAGE.
Box the Means Taken to Get Xevr
Born Infant Out of the Way.
CHICAGO. Nov. Carefujly tucked
into a new "telescope" box and dressed in
expensive clothing, a baby, only a few
days old. was found today at the Dear

from a Monon ,train. No claimant appear

the baby, sound asleep, was discovered by
the depotmaster. TJhe Infant was taken
to St. Vincent's Orphanage.
The trainmen think the child was put
aboard at a near-by Indiana station, as It
had not been crying and showed no evi

Spokane Man Says He Delivered 2S

turn of the Compliment Feels
Defeat of Home Men.
TACOMA, Wash., Nov. 8. (Special.)
The Ledger tomorrow will print a long
interview with ex-Senator John L. Wil
son, in the course of which he says:
"Much has been said about the situation
In Spokane, which is not. In my judg
ment, entirely understood by the' Repub
licans of this state. In our contest for
the election of members to the Legislat
ure we had everything to contend with,
and no chance to make any statement,
except by a bill-poster. We lost two
members on the "north side of the. river,
most excellent men, who were elected un
til w-e reached Hlllyard precinct. We
have never had at that precinct over 125
votes cast. This election 325 were thrown,
and over 100 of them sworn In. This vote
went against us and defeated the two
Republican candidates. In another dis
trict we lost a vote that we expected, and
the district being close, the Republicans
were defeated. Some of the defeat is, of
course, attributable to my candidacy, but
it must be remembered that another Sen
ator was running in our county, who
made In the United States Senate an en
viable record. It must also be remem
bered that George Stevenson came to Spo
kane and spent some two or three days
In that line of business with which he Is
credited, and the majority of the railway
vote from that time was thrown against
the Republican party.
"Two years ago the Democrats elected
six members of the Legislature In Spo
kane: this year seven; and 'while, as a
Republican, I do not hesitate to say that
I feel somewhat keenly the defeat at the
present time of the most estimable gen
tleman upon the Republican ticket In that
county, I do not subscribe to the doctrine
that another candidate for United States
Senator by reason of his great wealth
has any right' to defeat Republicans for
the reason that they may -not be for him.
I do not intend to give up the fight until
the Legislature has passed upon that
question. I have had, from warm friends
throughout the state, letters urging me
to continue upon these lines, anQ If I
may be permitted to say so, I have never
deserted my friends; nor have I shrunk
from a contest whenever it was present
ed. I know that every effort is being
made along certain lines, by rival can
didates, especially the Walla Walla qlalm
ant and his friends, that I am not In the
contest, but they have found out before,
and doubtless will again, that mere esti
mates and claiming of members of the
Legislature does not always bear fruit.
"The Tacoma correspondent of The Ore
gonian makes many errors In the claims
that he has made. Several of those found
In the Walla Walla claimant's column, I
am of the opinion, will not be found vot
ing in that way when the time comes."
In concluding the Interview, Mr. Wilson
made a significant statement, saying:
"When Mr. Foster was elected United
States Senator, I cast for 'him 28 votes,
and the understanding was clear and dis
tinct that. In the next contest, I was to
have the support of himself and friends.
It remains to be seen whether the favor
extended four years ago will now be ex
tended to me."

BALFOUR STICKS TO GOLF
Busy Premier Finds Time to Write of

LONDON, Nov. 8. In the midst of all
the stress of his preliminary labors,, occa
.slohed by the bitter fight against the edu
cation bill, Premier Balfour found time to
write a letter to a golfing paper against
the standardization of golf balls, which
has been so keenly debated since the In
troduction of American rubber-covered
balls. The Premier declares he has
viewed, Tvith "great apprehension,"- the
introduction into golf of 30 great a nov
elty as the standardization of the lmple.
ments used by players. No standardiza
tion, he considered, could not be restrict
ed to the halls, and the thinks It "a pity
to destroy the unlimited freedom of selec

WASHINGTON, Nov. 8. The War De
partment made public today a statement
of General R. P. Hughes in reply to
charges contained In a letter written by
Henry Loomis Nelson In a Boston news
paper August 25, 1902, and which letter
Is embraced in a pamphlet signed by
Charles Francis Adams, Carl Schurz, Ed
win Barrett Smith and Herbert Welsh,
committee, under the title of "Marked
Severities; Secretary Root's Record in
the Philippine Warfare." General Hughes
quotes the following extract from the let
ter:. "The Eighteenth Regiment marched
from Ilo Ilo, In the south, to Caplz, In
the north of Panay, under orders to burn
every town from which they were at
tacked. The result was they left a strip
of land 60 miles wide from one end of
the Island to the other, over which tho
traditional crow could not have flown
without provisions, "fhat is what burn
ing means, and no more. It is not done
for the fun of the thing, but out ot stern
General Hughes, who commanded in
Panay at the time, Bays the burning of
Ilo Ilo was shown by the official records
of the insurgent counsel to have been tho
work of the Insurgents. He says the
troops by "some work, some fighting and
much exposure .to fire were able to wrench
a portion of Ilo Ilo from the flames."

PUEBLO, Colo.. Nov. S. For 20 years
people have been trying to find the source
of the ore at "Silver Cliff, and at last it
has been turned up, only half a mile from
the town. The strike made a few days
ago. by Haskell '& Jackson, two veteran
assayers, seems to, be the most Import-
j ant in Southern Colorado for many years
They are now literally quarrying out the
ore, and shipping It by the carload. Im
mense sums have been spent In vain ef
forts to find "the ore which was known
to be there, the search including the
Geyser Prospect shaft, which Is 2600 feet
deep. The ore has been found Just below
the surface on Government land. It
runs $44 per ton, and picked specimens
yield 75 ounces of gold and much sliver.
There Is great excitement In all that
region, and everything has been staked
for miles. It Is anticipated that Silver

The members of, the delegation received
many congratulations yesterday. The
public was happy because of the harmony
in the ranks of the lawmakers and of
the. asurance that the gentlemen had not
forgotten the pledges which, had madt
their election possible, first at the .pri
maries, last April, and second at the
polls lailt June. The frith which the
voters placed in tUft J-eglslaiors ha.s bem
kept, nor have their rivals gained any
grounds for offering censure. The news
has gone out over the state that the in
fluence of Multnomah will not be made
Impotent by an array of this county's
forces against each o'ther. The Legisla
tors themselves are no less happy. Some
of them had feared that the delegation
could not merge Itself into so complete a
unity. Others doubted the expediency of
organization at this time. Still others
held " back because of diffidence or re
luctancp to enter so soon upon intimate
relations of organization. But the happy
result of the meeting has dispelled all
doubts and apprehensions.
H. W. Corbetht said la.it night that tho
resolution of the lawmakers on the Fair
appropriation was a credit to themselves
and to. their constituents.
"I am glad," said Mr. Corbett, "that tho
delegation declared its stand without a
formal conference with the directors.
Their action has put them In the light of
Independence before the public. The
directors at no time brought any pressure
whatever to bear upon any member of
the delegation. No pressure was neces
sary, because the Legislators represent
the true sentiment of the community. The
communitj- Is a unit for the Fair. The
independence of the gentlemen Is a credit
to thc-msflves and a gratification to the
Lewis and Clark directors."

Mayor. Williams happily. "The people
have enacted the new charter and the
Legislators have obeyed their mandate. If

people will make them In due time."
