STRIPS OFF MASK
OF HIS Oil PARTY
Walsh "Resigns From Demo
cratic Committee With
CONTROLLED BY CAPITAL
Iowa lieader Denounces Executive
Committee of 1904 Campaign
and Analyzes Members'
OTTUMWA, la., Sept. 1. Charles A.
Walsh, the Iowa member of the Dem
ocratic National Committee, who was
secretary of the National Committee
during: the two Bryan campaigns, has
tendered his resignation as a member
of the National Committee, giving his
reasons for so doing in the following
letter to Chairman Tom Taggart,
which wa mailed today:
Permit me to herewith hand you, as
chairman of the Democratic National
Committee, my resignation as a mem
ber thereof, representing the State of
Iowa thereon. For the future J intend
to be in position to support, or not
support, as I may see fit, the candi
dates of the ' Democratic party.
"While I have heretofore always
been known as a partisan Democrat
and wiil always be a staunch sup
porter of Democratic principles as I
understand them. It has been steadily
borne in upon me for a long time, as
I come closer and closer to a knowl
edge of the inner workings of the
party system, that, from the tand
point of true Democracy, there can be
nothing, worse Or more Injurious to
the country than the 'yellow dog"
party feeling that Impels good men to
support a ticket of unfit nominees
merely because they bear the party
Corporate Control of Party.
'"Within the Democratic party, as
within the Republican, there are .two
contending factions, the vastly more
numerous but during ordinary times
the least influential being the great
rank and file which believes In the
principles of Jefferson. The other fac
tion, numerically Insignificant, but
representing the predatory forces of
special privilege and those who seek
to use all Government as an asset to
their private business is, by reason of
wealth and lack of conscience in using
It, vastly more powerful and usually
controls the- party plan, its organisa
tion and its nominees.
"As. an instance of how Important
the corporation element believes con
trol of machinery to be, I might men
tion the flagrant violation of all party
precedent in the appointment of the
present Democratic National Execu
tive Committee. The executive com
mittee, had always, prior to the cam
paign of 1904, been appointed chiefly
(and, so far as my recollection goes,
wholly) from .the regularly-elected
members of the National Committee,
usually' being made up of those mem
bers from the more doubtful states,
which it was necessary to carry in
order to elect.
Sheehan's Record in Brief.
"How was the real campaign organ
ization formed in 1904? An executive
committee was made up, carefully lim
ited to seven members, and those seven
members were William P. Sheehan
chairman, of New York City; August
Belmont, of New York City; James
Smith, Jr., of New Jersey; Thomas F.
Martin, of Virginia; James M. Guffy, of
Pennsylvania; John R. McLean, of
Ohio and the City of Washington, and
Timothy E. Ryan, of Wisconsin. Tho
first four mentioned were not and are
not members of the National Com
mittee. "Sheehan. formerly a discredited
Buffalo politician, builder of the most
vicious political machine ever known
In Erie County, arrested for flagrant
violation i of the civil service law, his
machine finally routed and he practi
cally driven from Buffalo, is now. with
his partner. Judge Parker, one of the
chief corporation lawyers of New
York, representing among others the
Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company, and
has represented In legislative halls
and the courts Consolidated Gas, Edi
son Electric and many others. He Is
a director In the Cord-Meyer Develop
ment Company, the company lately
caught stealing the city's water on
Long Island, and In many other cor
porations. Belmont Franchise-Grabber.
"Belmont is the head of the American
branch of the famous European banking
house of the Rothschilds. He organized
the company that captured the New York
subway. He Is a director in about 30
special privilege-seeking corporations. He
maintains a legislative bureau with a
press annex, and is notorious for his lob
bying methods. He is the leading pro
moter of horseraclng and racetrack gam
bling. "Smith was formerly the iron-fisted boss
of the Essex County machine, the friend
and tool of William C. Stickney, reputed
friend of Governor Abbett, of New Jersey,
but betrayed him in his Senatorial fight
in 1905 and had . himself elected to . the
United States Senate. While In the sad
dle as boss of the State of New Jersey,
the gravest frauds were revealed In that
state, and in a whirlwind of public re
sentment he and the party were driven
from power in 1894 and the party power
has never been regained in New Jersey."
In the Senate he was the same corpora
tion tool, coworker with -Gorman and
Brlce. His last appearance in the lime
light was as receiver of the International
Shipbuilding Company,- when he asked a
1200.000 fee. although the work was large
ly done by attorneys, his bond was only
$100,000, and the total sum which passed
through' his hands was only Jl.125,000 in
the aggregate. The Attorney-General op
posed this and. the fee was cut down.
Guf fey, Standard Oil Man.
"Martin, prior to election to the United
States Senate, was the attorney for the
Chesapeake & Ohio Railway, while Guf
fey is looked upon as the field agent of
Standard Oil. ' ' .
"Indeed, the only member 'of the Demo
cratic National 'executive committee not
known as a special representative of that
corporation -class which Is constantly
seeking special privilege of city, state or
tational .Government Js the last-named
member. Mr. Ryan. And the only reason
for the selection of the latter over Roger
C. Sullivan, the undoubted political rep
resentative of the gas, traction and other
corporations of Chicago, was a family
row then on between two Illinois fac
tions. 'In addition to this, precedent 'was
again violated by the dictated election of
De Lancy Nicoll, also of New York City,
as vice-chairman of the National com
mittee. Instead of some member of that
committee; while George Peabody, of
New York City, late treasurer of the
Palmer and Buckner National commit
tee, was made the treasurer of the com
mittee. ' ,
"And following this, what?
"A campaign against Roosevelt at
tempted to be made by that committee
on anti-trust and anti-corporation cam
paign contributing grounds.
"I do you the credit. Mr. Chairman,
to think that you personally did not se
lect this committee or these officers.
They were forced upon you and dictated
to you. But how deplorable the weak
ness that could submit to such dictation.
And in every section of this country this
corporation care to secure control of
party machinery is being constantly, evi
"The . complete lack of confidence on
the part of the Democratic masses in the
party Itself when officered by such men
was not only shown In the election of
1904, but 'was reflected fn the action of
Mr. Bryan when he objected to being re
ceived by corporation trust representa
tives in New York, and Illinois demanded
the retirement of Roger Sullivan from
the National committee.
"Out of the contentions of the two
antagonistic forces within the party has
grown its present condition, with the
pendulum swinging first one way, then
the other; the character of its candidates.
If not its platform, one year giving the
lie to Its professions of the next. -
How to End Corporate Rule.
"The priclples of Jeffersonlan Democ
racy are true; and could the party by
Its constant acts and uninterrupted
courre convince the people that it was
to remain steadily In the hands of the
advocates of those principles, it would
speedily be placed in power.
"If absolute Independence of action at
the polls were observed by the voters of
all parties. If they had no veneration
whatever for the mere party name, if
their votes were as readily cast against
the unfit nominees of their own party
as against those of their opponents, if
real independence instead of partisan
feeling were cherished, the corrupt con
trol of political affairs would come to a
"Intending in the future to ally myself
with any movement looking to the culti
vation of Independent action along the
lines of principles among all the people.
I cannot in honor or, Justice to myself
continue to take part as a member of
the organization in the Democratic coun
cils, and I therefore return my com
mission, perhops with regret that I
should deem It necessary, but certainly
not with any weakness of resolution."
M'CIiEIXAX OUT FOR JEROME
Mayor Declares Himself on Xew
York Democratic Fight.
" PARIS. Sept. 1. After 11 weeks' vaca
tion In Europe, Mayor George B. McClel
ian, of New York, sailed for home to
day on the steaniehip St. .Paul, prepared
to- support anu fight for Jerome as a
candidate for Governor of the stale if
the Democratic Convention nominates
"I am going home.' he said, "to fight
for decency in politics and decency in
Democracy, and my friends are going
to fight with me." The Mayor said he
had no direct recent information on the
situation, but had seen nothing to ch"T i
the views he held when he left for New
York. "I thought then and I tnln now."
he said, "that Jerome .would be the
strongest candidate before the convention
and before the electorate. He has made
an excellent fight In the people's Interest
for decent politics. "I think the people
of the state want him as a candidate for
Governor, and if nominated he will make
a splendid fight and a campaign of real
life. I speak as a Democrat."
The last sentence was in response to
a -question as to whether he meant Jerome
as a candidate of the Democratic conven
tion or as an independent.

LYNN, Mass., Sept, 1. (Special.)
Another blow has been dealt to a pre
vailing fashion among women here.
Priests and preachers have condemned
the "Peek-a-two" and short sleeves
but the Rev. Father Arthur J. 'feeling,
rector of St. Mary's Catholic Church,
has gone one step farther and has de
clared the highly-fashionable custom
of women' going bareheaded is immod
est. Father 'reeling has issued an edict
in the Monthly Calendar of the church
that women with heads uncovered will
not be permitted to enter the church.
"It seems to be now the fad for
women to appear in the streets and in
public conveyances with their heads
uncovered,"- said the priest. "It may be
asked and very appropriately, .on read
ing the 19th chapter of St. Paul's First
Epistle to 'the Corinthians, If such
women are considered suitably dressed
for appearance in public. It seems to
me thut there is something altogether
out of the way about the appearance
of any woman whom we see on the
streets nowadays. When at the wash tub
or doing other hard work of that kind
in tho house it is, of course, all right
for them to roll up their sleeves and
leave their arms bare, but they really
ought to take time to pull down their
sleeves before going out on the streets.
However, that may be, women must
remember that they ought not to enter
a Catholic church with their heads un
covered or in any way immodestly

ESCAPES FROM PRISON
Sent to Spend L.ife at Devil's Island
He Is Rescued by Relatives and
" Friends After Being Re
CHICAGO, Sept. 1. (Specials
Chicago relatives and friends of "Eddie-'
Guerln, world-famous bank sneak
and criminal, are engaged in an en
deavor to save him from the iatu of a
life sentence on Devil's Island. Solici
tor Slmms, of the British Treasury
Department, is making an investiga
tion which will decide whether Guerln
will spend the rest of his life oil the
scene of Dreyfus- imprisonment or be
allowed his stolen freedom under the
flag of England. On this France and
England are engaged In an inquiry
Into Guerin's citizenship.
Robs Express Company.
Guerin continued a picturesque
criminal career by the daring robbery
of the American Express Company's
office. Rue Scribe, Paris, in 1901. Witli
a companion he entered the office and
lay concealed until night. The two
men attacked and gagged a negro at
tendant, blew the safe and escaped
with 30,000 francs, but was finally ar
rested. He had previously ser'i.d an
eight-year sentence in ths prii-nn at
Marseilles - for the theft of 250.000
francs from the Bank of, Lyons. His
sentence was life on Devil's Island.
Makes I nlquc Get-Away.
Spectacular as had been Guerin's ca
reer, his rescue from the Island was
more spectacular. His brother, "Pad
dy" Guerin, reformed safeblower and
handbook-maker, now living in Chi
cago, "Pat" Sheedy and friends who
knew the Guerln family on the West
Side, were always credited with the
rescue. A purse of several liioubdnd
dollars was raised. Guards at the
Devil's Island prison were said to have
been bought. One night "Eddie"
Guerln was reported dead to the prison
authorities and orders were grven for
his burial in the sea. It was another
man who died. Guerin escaped to a
secluded part of the Island, where a
schooner picked him up. Guerln was
carried to Dutch Gulann, where he
took another boat and fled to Indon,
England. From London lie came to
Chicago and the report of his arrival
here stirred all France, for the prison
rcords of Devil's Island showed him
Takes Tilings Easy.
Guerin lived in ease In Chicago for
a while, but later drifted to England
again and was picked up on the streets
of London by a Scotland Yard man as
a suspect. The French authorities
took measures to secure his extradi
tion. That was six months ago, and
so strenuous a fight has Guerin put
up that the British government has
gone to the extreme of sending a spe
cial solicitor to Investigate the record
of Guerin's birth and facts concerning
his father's citizenship.
Chicago West Side Training.
Guerin is 45 years old. He Is
dressy and well rpoken. On the West
Side he had the advantage of a good
home and careful training, but h
chose a life of reckless crime before
he was 18 years old. Associating with
thieves and suspected of many rob
beries, the Chicago police tried In vain
to fasten a crime upon him or to drive
him out of the city. At last hi. got
into a fight with Detective Tom Tre
horn. The cause was a disreputable
woman and the result was an exchange
of shots. In which the detective was
seriously wounded. Guerin fled from
the city, and was next heard from In
Allegheny City. Pa., where he lobbed
a bnk. .He escaped to New York the
day he was arrested, but was recap
tured after a fight and brought back,
was tried and sent to the penitentiary.
Makes Another Haul.
The robbery of the Bank of Lyons,
which netted J50.000 to the thieves,
happened soon after Guerin's release
from his American cell. The robbers
were traced to England. The detec
tives of Scotland Yard, London, had a
fierce fight before they captured
Guerln, but he was taken back to
France in irons.
