BOSTON. OcL' 7. General Charles W.
Bartlett, of Boston, today -was nominated
by the' Massachusetts' "Democracy for
Governor. There were no contests for
any of the places on -the-tlcket. The re
mainder of the .ticket nominated follows:

Secretary ' of Stale Henry B. Little,
Treasurer and--Receiver General Daniel

Auditor P. J. Ashe,' North Adams.
Attorney-General John T. Leahy, Bos
ton. The only ripple of discord during the
day came upon the nomination of 18 mem-bers-aMarge
of the State Committee.
Daniel Y. Toomey, of Springfield, made an
unsuccessful attempt to have the conven
tion decree that hereafter the members of
the State Committee be elected directly by
the people at the Senatorial and Congres
sional conventions. Mr. Toomey charged
that the Democratic State Committee as
at present constituted did not represent
the Democratic voters, tout was a close
corporation that dictated the party policy

Platform Commends Roosevelt.
The nlatform adopted declares for a re

of coal, Iron, lumber, hides, -wood pulp
and other raw materials: It commends

war in the Far East; calls for state super

Jeremiah Watson, of Boston, offered a j
substitute platform, which was over-
whelmingly voted down. During the I
reading of the substitute the convention
.was in an uproar, many of the delegates
endeavoring to drown the sound of Mr.
Watson's voice. Mr. Watson was inter- i
runted with hisses and jeers, but, as he ,
peveral times announced that he would
read the substitute if it look all night,
he was finally allowed to proceed. In re-!
sponse to an inquiry Irom the gallery as
to the author of the platform, he stated
that 'William J. Bryan was the author.
Following is an abstract of the plat
form: Attack on Tji'tlKRcstrlctlons.
The paramount tsue at this time before
the people of Massachusetts. Is relief from
tariff restrictions: The effect of this policy
forged upon the dominant Republican party
ty the greed of great and nelflsh' Interests
had been to cut Massachusetts from Its Na
tional markets ot sale or purchase and to
push the state toward the danger line of
Industrial decline. It is shown In trode re
ports, financial statements and census re
turns that while the Industries of Ihtf coun
try as a whole have materially -Increased in
the past decade, those of this stato have
We believe that a sensible- relief from
these evils could bo obtained without dis
turbance to business by . placing upon th'e
free list a Wdlnber 'of' the raw materials of
our industries, such., as coal, iron, lumber,
hides, wood puip, and by the immediate
enactment Of a. .dual' tariff law which,-while
having the present tariff as its maximum,
would give liberal 'reductions In duty rates
to those nations that wilL accord to us fa
vorable trade opportunities.
liiws Affecting Corporatioas.
We Ueilevc 'that general laws 'should Jak
the place of Hpeclal laws In legislation re
lating to .pubjlc service corporations; that
all corporations should be prohibited from
contributing money to be used for political
purposes; that, as the tariff is the mother
of trusts, these offsprings should be de
prived of the excessive protections hy means
of which they are oppressing the people;
that United States Senators should be
elected by the people, and that pending the
passage of a constitutional amendment stato
Legislatures should be provided for their
nomination by direct popular vote;. that In
all attempts made to regulate the business
of the country through the medium of the
National Government care has been taken
to respect -the rights of the state govern
ments and to prevent the creation of bureau
cratic authorities capable, when treated In
a distinct, capacity, and when working with
out direct responsibility of overriding the
wishes and destroying the liberty of the
Control of Insurance Companies.
We believe that legislation should be
enacted giving cities and towns broader,
powers In the conduct and control of busi
ness which derives its profits from the neces
sities of the- community, experiencing and
demonstrating that under favorable condi
tions and proper management the business
of -public utilities can be conducted by
municipal corporations- with profit to the
people, both In price and In service.
We believe that the revelations of llfo
Insurance corruption, brought out by tlib
Investigation now going on in New Tork
City, make it evident that there- cannot bo
for these corporations too much or too loose
official oversight, and we 'protest against
substituting a system of National control of
more than questionable constitutionality for
the existence of state supervision.
We heartily commend the diplomatic cour
age and sagacity of President Bodsevelt in
exerting the great Influence of his office to
bring to an end the terrible and bloody war
in the Far East.
We deeply regret that Governor Douglas
has declined the highly deserved honor of
a renomlnation. He has shown in his of
ficial career an honesty, courage and dignity
which have won for him the commendation
alike of political friends and opponents.
Bryanlsm Turned Down.
The substitute reaffirmed the financial
views or '.Mr. Bryan and advocated muni
clpal ownership and Federal control of
railroad rates and of great industrial cor
porations and Insurance companies.
Just before adjournment, General Bart
lett and air. Whitney entered the hall
pnd were given a tremendous ovation
Both made brief addresses. General
Bartlett closed by saying in reference
to the November election:
"When the votes have been counted,
somebody will learn that there has been a

tonight before a large gathering of
representative citizens, the number of
those attending being- so great that an

In. opening his remarks, Mr. Bona
parte directed attention to the fact
that four weeks from next Tuesday the
people of Maryland "will decide wheth
er, for time whereof no man can see.
whether they will belong to themselves
or belong to the Democratic ring;
whether the state shall be governed in
our days and the days of their? chil
dren as it was governed In the days o
.our fathers; of whether its govern-"
.ment shall bo turned over to a group
of selfish, grasping and unscrupulous
'men. among whom. It is said, son is to
succeed father as our chief ruler; in
bo"rt, whether we are tired of political
liberty and, in its full sense, willing
to give up the name of freemen."
To those who doubted what success
for the amendment would mean, Mr.
Bonaparte pointed to the recent Demo-1
.cratic -primaries,-- and said:
Notwithstanding the severe and steady
pressure applied Jjy the ring to secure
for the amendment a party Indorsement,
the feeling against it. even among the
most "regular," the most "rockribbed"
Democrats was so strong that peveral
ward executives -and a numbor of can
didates for local' offices of the Legislature
were chosen whose opposition-to it was
known and avowed, and in me Instances
were chosen on the very issue of its ap
proval or repudiation.
He scored the committee recently ap
pointed by "the ring or its chief," to
"jut. through" the amendment. He de
clared that the commilteo had no moro
rlgh't or ' authority, to represent the
Democrats of Baltimore or of Mary
land than he or his audience.
Mr. Bonaparte, after furthor t de
nouncing "the ring," concluded as fol
lows: Fellow-citizens, only one class of peo
ple will be assured of their votes if this
amendment becomes law those men,
black as well as white, who arc owned,

NEW YORK. OcL 7. Whether Charles
E. Hughes, Inquisitor of the legislative
investigating committee, will accept the
Renublican nomination for Mayor will
not be known until noon Monday, when.
he will be formally notified by the notifi
cation committee. The best opinion in po
litical circles tonight was that he would
decline. Mr. .Hughes spent the day play
ing golf in Nassau County. He indicated
his state of feeling this morning before
he left the city by saying:
"I am strongly convinced I ought not
to accept I made tills statement a little
while' ago, before I went to bed, and It
still embodies my position. I have given
the subcommittee no encouragement-
Posltively I shall say no more about It
until formal notification Is given mo by
"This Is your final word till Monday?"
"Positively, until I am officially notified
of the nomination. I am going out of town
to stay over Sunday."
The political associates of Benjamin B,
Odell, who is running the Republican
campaign in the city, declare tonight that
Huches is the man to lead the party to
victory and that he must sacrifice his
own personal desire to save the parly
from defeat. On the other nana, tne in
surance committee men will do all they
can to persuade Mr. Hughes to continue
his work as .counsel for the committee.
James McKeen, associate of Mr. Hughes
as counsel for the insurance Investigat
ing committee, does not believe Mr.
Huehes will accept the nomination. 2
McKeen does not see how Mr. Hughes
can accept. He says it would be a great
misfortune for the insurance committee
to lose the man who has accomplished
such wonderful results. McKeen said:

WILD ROSE. Wis., Oct 7. Not until
one was dead, one fatally wounded and
one seriously hurt, did the band of four
robbers that looted the postoffice and at
tempted to wreck the vault In the State
Bank her last nlchL surrender to the
posse late this evening. Fighting like 1
fiends, dragging the body of their dead :
comrade through the woods, over mead- j
ows and streams, they held out against i
the odds of 25 to- 4 until their ammunl- j
tlon wps exhausted and two of their num-
ber fell to the earth fainting from their i
Firing bullet after bullet at the unseen
marksmen among the foes that were fast
closing about them, they retreated to a
hill In the woods about seven miles from
the village, and there fell after a most
desperate battle. The robbers were well
armed, and it was not until several hours
of thfl battle had passed that the only
bandit left standing gave up, falling Into
the arms of his pursuers.
As soon as it was discovered that tho
postoffice had been looted and that tho
door of the safe In tho State Bank had
been dynamited, a party of three. Dr.
Wilcox, a local physician; John Burns,
cashier of the bank, and the City Marshal,
went out with the hope of getting track
of the bandits. They tracked the gang
to a woods several miles from town and
returned for help. A nondescript mob of

camped for the night. The Town Marshal
approached first. Two men with "Win
chesters had been Instructed to fire at the
robbers at the first hostile move. When
tho Marshal ordered the men to surren

The Winchesters cracked at the same
time and one of the robbers fell fiead,
pierced through the forehead and through
the arm. A desperate battle then fol
lowed. Few of the posse had weapons of
any worth and tho sharpshooters and the
Winchesters were In the rear and could
not fire for fear of shooting their own
friends. A running fight that lasted over
an hour followed, during which over 3CO
shots were exchanged. It was after dark

MIDDLETOWX. N. Y., Oct. 7. Mur
der so brutal that four victims were
demanded by the butchers, and so mys
terious that one slender chain of clews
exists, was discovered last night when
a dying woman and the bodies of two
men and a child were found near the
Olney farm. Willis C. and Fred R.
Olney, 62 and 58 years of age, respec
tively, and little Alice Ingrlck wero
dead when the four-ply crime came to
light. Mrs. Gebrgo Ingrick. mother of
the child and housekeeper for tho Ol
ney brothers, still lived, but at a late
hour It was said at the Thrall Hospital
that she could not survive. All that 151
known Is that a wagon In which two
strangers rode was seen close to the
homestead about the time when, the
murders must have been committed;
that one of the men In the vehicle was
lame, and that the wagon when last
seen was moving toward Shawangunk
Mountains. A posse was -sent In that
direction, and the police of all the
towns and villages along the mountain
road were asked to question closely
everyone who excited the least suspi
cion. A strange coincidence, possibly
nothing more. Is that one of the mur
dered men, Willis Olney, himself was
arrested on suspicion of murder 13
years ago, and that the crime of which
he was suspected was committed on a
farm adjoining his own. Mrs. Noah
Gregory was found dead in her homo
in lS92t and there was blood on Willis
Olney's hands and garments when
Constables interrogated him. Ho was
set free after a single night behind the
bars, as he told a Magistrate he had
killed hogs on the day the woman wns
murdered, and that was accepted as
explanation of the bloodstains found.
Olney was cleared of further guilt In
the eyes of his neighbors when FTed
Magulre a year after was put to death
In Sing Sing on conviction of having
slain Mrs. Gregory.
Partlcuar attention was given to the
manner of Willis Olney's death. Ho
wns shot through the right ear. Wheth
er his own hand could have held the
weapon has not been determined.
One of the murderers and the prob
ably fatal assault were discovered
through Lulu Ingrick, 13 years old.
whoso brief absence from tho farm
doubtless saved her life. Sho returned
to the Olney farm from MIddletown
about 5 o'clock last evcnlpg. Eager for
supper, she hastened to the -dining-,
room, where she found tho table spread
but the room empty. She ran through
the house, calling her mother and sis
ter. Receiving no response, she be
came alarmed and hurried to Daniel
Davis home, a quarter of a mile away.
Davis went to tho Olney house. His
eyes fell on a newspaper lying behind
the kitchen stove. In It ho found "a
section of lead pipe more than two feet
long. The pipe was stained with blood
from end to end. He found the body
of Lulu's sister, Alice, 9 years old. at
tho foot of the cellar stairs. The skull
had been beaten in with a heavy
weapon, Davis took the dead child" to
a bedroom, then ran to the farm of
John Fish". From the Fish home he

WASHINGTON, Oot. 7. George B. Cor
telyou, chairman of tho Republican Na
tional Committee, will not resign tho
chairmanship. The- reason for this deter
mination Is Jiot far to seek. President
Roosevelt does not wish Mr. Cortelyou to
retire from tho position while there is
even a suspicion of the smoke of flro fn
the air, and the ohalrman himself holds
the same view of his duty In tho matter.
If Mr. McCall. president of" the New
Tork Life Insurance Company, had not
testified that ho had turned over many
thousands of dollars of the company's
money to tho Republican National Com
mittee during the last campaign, Mr. Cor
telyou by this time would have handed In
his resignation as chairman, and would
have Insisted upon Its acceptance. Mr.
Cortelyou said plainly today that mat
ters bad come up -that required hi3 per
sonal attention as National chairman, but
he declined to state what those matters
were. Evidently these matters pertain to
the payment of money by the New York
Life Insurance Company to the Republi
can campaign committee last year.
Was About to Resign.
There was a practical admission some
time ago from Mr. Cortelyou of his Inten
tion before long to resign tho chairman
ship and turn over the conduct of the
committee's affairs to Harry S. New, of
Indianapolis. It is known that nothing
has happened In the meantime, save the
McCall revelation, of importance enough
to mako him change his mind. Since the
country learned of the Insurance com
pany's contribution to the campaign fund
there has been conference after confer
ence among tho prominent Republican
leaders who have happened to be In
It Is held by many people that the re
turn of the money to tho New York Life
Insurance Company would be a farcical
procefcdlng, and would tend only to bring
ridicule upon the committee and upon
the party leaders, who were responsible for
tho advice to. do so.
Better Declare the Facts.
It is declared here freely that the bray.
est way Is. the' best way, and that It wero
far better" to tell what the Republicans
believe to bo the truth that the money
was expended for legitimate campaign
purposes, and was used to aid In the elec
