T AIMS TO
HEAD OFF BRYAN
Warmed Lest He Should
Stump for Jerome if
OFFERS REASONS AGAINST
District Attorney Has Rarely ' Sup

NEW YORK, Sept. 8. (Special.) Mayor
McClellan cams home today, and on Tues
lay "William Randolph Hearst will be
nominated for Governor by- the Indepen
dence League Convention, which is to be
held in this city. By the Utter date it
Is expected that the political pot will be
bubbling briskly. The following Tues
Say (September 18), will be devoted to the
primaries, and Tuesday, September 25, the
state conventions of. the Republicans and
Democrats take place.
Hearst men are interested In a story
that William Jennings Bryan, when he
met McClellan in London, promised that
he would take the stump for the regular
Democratic candidate for Governor. And
they don't want him to do that unless the :
reKular candidate is Hearst.
In an effort to head off Bryan, a care
ful Investigation of Jerome's political rec
ord has been made, and It is unofficially
stated that his record as a "good loyal
Democrat" is based on the following ac
tion at the polls:
Jerome's Changing Allegiance.
1S.3 Voted for Cleveland for President.
1S3 Helped to elect the Republican
state ticket (except Governor and Lieutenant-Governor,
who held over). Voted
against Maynard (Democrat) for Judge
6f the Court of Appeals.
1894 Supported Strong (Republican) for
Mayor and Morton (Republican) for Gov
ernor. Didn't like Hill or Tammany.
1S96 2o state or city election.
ISSb Voted the Palmer and Buckner
' ticket. Opposed Bryan because he was a
1897 Opposed both the Republican and
Democratic candidates for Mayor, Tracy
and Van Wyck, and lined up with Beth
Low, Citizens' Union nominee.
1S98 Didn't regard Augustus Van Wycki
Candidate for Governor, as a good Demo
crat. Voted for Roosevelt.
1S!9 No state or city election.
' 1900 Couldn't stand for Bryan for Presl
flent or Stanchfleld for Governor." Sup
ported McKinley and Roosevelt and
1901 Supported Beth Low (this time the
tegular Republican nominee for Mayor)
and was elected District Attorney on the
Bam a ticket.
1902 As a good Democrat he objected to
Bird S. Coler. Voted for Odell for Gov
ernor. 1903 Supported Beth Low (Republican)
for Mayor. Told him he would be de
feated, and he was.
1904 Quietly announced that Alton B.
Parker was an impossible candidate for
President. Voted for Roosevelt, but was
In line for Herrlck (Democrat) for Gov
ernor. 1905 With five city tickets in the field,
Republican, Democratic, Municipal Own
ership, Socialist and Prohibitionist, op
posed them all. Voted the ticket of the
"Jerome Nominators," which only con
tained his own name.
How Can Bryan Support Him.
"If said the Hearst man who prepared
this list, "true Democracy consists In
opposing the regularly nominated can
didates of the party, then Jerome Is the
truest true Democrat that ever hap
pened. But I don't see how Bryan can
come out .and help a man like Jerome
who is politically nothing but a com
Jerome's peculiar political record has
not yet been attacked In the newspapers,
but it probably will be under discussion
before long. When the matter was "put
up to" the District Attorney unofficially
the other day, he declared that he was
with his party "when it wag right." and
at no other time. Many old-line Demo
crats take exception to the Jerome point
of view, for if he is correct. It means
that the party has been wrong in city,
state and Nation ever since Grover Cleve
land ran the last time.
And that Is 14 long years ago!
McClellan Will Galvanize Boom.
Mayor McClellan's arrival is expected
to put fresh life Into the Jerome boom,
as Fire Commissioner John O'Brien, his
former private secretary and present con
fidential adviser, has stated that the
Mayor means to "fire" summarily every
office-holder who does not renounce Mur
phy and come out Into the open for
In the meantime, the primary fights
are becoming warmer, and one district
leader, State Senator James J. Frawley,
hag been arrested on a charge of beat
ing two hard-working motormen who are
aligned with an opposition faction. The
average employe of the Interborough,
however, is so overhearing that the Sen
ator's exploit has actually gained him
votes, for ordinary long-suffering citizens
would welcome a campaign every week
Jf It had a bruising effect upon the con
ductors and motormen with whom they
are daily thrown In contact.
Encouraging to Hearst.
A. cabled interview with McClellan to
the effect that the Tammany delegation
would not vote as a unit has excited
much interest here. The Murphy and
Hearst men take it as an acknowledge
ment that the Mayor expects to be de
feated, and plans to hoia at least a
minority of delegates from New York
County against Hearst.
It is also pointed out that the abolition
of the unit rule would be of more benefit
to Hearst than to Jerome, for the former
could win with one-third of the delegates
from New York County, while Jerome's
only hope is to have a solid band of
"home folks' behind him.
The Hearst men are publicly claiming
that their man will be nominated re
gardless of the action of New York and
Kings County, but privately they only
expect 70 districts -upstate ana in Queens
County, and admit they need six In New
York to win.
Even if Jerome wins a big victory. Mur
phy is certain of a better showing than
that In the- 35 assembly districts here, so
the Mayor's announcement is naturally
a source of joy to the advocates of Wil
liam Randolph Hearst.
"If the unit rule is not enforced," said
one of the Independence League old
guard at the Gilsey House today, "no
power in the state can prevent Hearst's
nomination. Everything looks as If we
had the Jerome men on the run."
STILL- . STAXDS BY JEROME
McClellan Returns Silent About
Bryan, but Opposing Ownership.
McClellan, looking the embodiment of
health, arrived today on the American
liner St. Paul after a three months' tour
In Europe. On the question of the prob
able nomination of Mr. Bryan by tne
Democrats for the Presidency he would
"I met Mr. Bryan in London and talked
on almost everything save the political
situation," he said.
Referring to the candidacy of District
Attorney Jerome for the gubernatorial
nomination, he said: "In an interview
cabled from Paris I expressed the opinion
that Jerome was not only one of the
strongest candidates In the Democracy,
but one of the most picturesque and
strongest figures now before the people.
Since I delivered that opinion I have
been on the sea, so can form no opinion
as to the present condition of affairs,
but I have so far heard nothing that
would alter that opinion."
On municipal ownership he had this to
say: "So far as I have been able to
Judge, municipal ownership as it applies
to street locomotion is by no means a
success in continental cities. In nearly
all those places visited by us in Ger
many and France the street tramway
system was a failure, or nearly so."

ASHION HAS MORE TROUBLE
Suspends Binder Who Denounced
New Printing Office Rule.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 8. The Govern
ment Printing Office received another
shake-up today, when Ashlon, acting
foreman of the bindery, suspended Jacob
Hale, a bookbinder and prominent officer
of the International Brotherhood of Book
binders. It was declared at the printery that
dissatisfaction had been found with some
of Hale's work. Friends of Hale, how
ever, asserted that his suspension was
due to a vigorous address made by him
last night at a meeting of members of
the Bookbinders' Union who are employes
of the Government Printing Office, in
which they discussed the recent order of
the Public Printer requiring binders to
produce a greater output ot work.

State Department today received a dis
patch from Leishman saying that the
Sultan has practically recovered from his
serious illness, and within a day or two
would give an audience to the French and
British Ambassadors. After receiving
these foreign representatives, it is be
lieved the Sultan can offer no further rea
sons for not permitting Mr. Leishman to
present his credentials.
REFORMED SPELLING ILLEGAL
Congress Passed Law on the Subject
and Courts Affirmed It.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 8. (Special.) A
local lawyer declares that President
Roosevelt's simple spelling order : may
prove illegal.. He says that over a-score
of years ago Congress passed a Joint
resolution, which became a law, recog
nizing Webster's unabridged dictionary
as the standard for Government spell
ing, and that a Supreme Court decision
afterward affirmed the act. The records
are now being examined.
Oil Bothers Warship Engines.
WASHINGTON, Sept 8. The Louisiana,

ship," which is now undergoing her
"shaking-down" process, has been
obliged to steam slowly because oil gets
into the boilers and causes trouble. This
condition of affairs has afflicted a number

Uncle Sam's Warning.
NEW ORLEANS, Sept. 8.-(Speclal.
For three weeks a number of the most
prominent Americans in Spanish Hon
duras with loaded rifles have been stand
ing guard day and night over the Ameri
can consulate in Ceiba, according to ad
vices received here from returning Amer
icans. Dr. Robinson, representative of
the United States Marine Hospital Corps,
gave a diagnosis of a number of suspi
cious cases of fever which was unsatis
factory to the residents and which re
sulted in the quarantine restrictions be
ing so tightened that It was almost im
possible to leave the city. Dr. Reynolds,
the acting Consul, has taken a strong
stand in the matter and, after laying
in ammunition, announced that if more
than five men at one time attempted to
pass ehe consulate they would be fired
Found Yellow Fever on Steamer.
It Is said the trouble was brought about
through Dr. Robinson's refusing to give
the British steamship Joseph Vaccaro,
of the Vaccaro line of New Orleans, a
clean bill of health. He declared on
the ship's papers that there existed three
cases of suspicious fever, which he sub
sequently diagnosed as yellow fever. The
Government officials and other natives
threatened to kill Dr. Robinson if he did
not change his diagnosis. The native
Board of Health pronounced the cases
malaria and denounced him for ruining
Ceiba' s commercial relations with the
Mr. Woods, the American Consul at
Ceiba, is at Washington on his vacation
and Dr. Robinson appealed to Dr. Rey
nolds, the acting Consul, for protection.
The latter communicated with the com
mandant, who sarcastically informed Dr.
Reynolds that he could not guarantee
that Dr. Robinson would not be attacked
by the natives, who publicly announced
their intention of lynching the American
physician. The relations between the
Americans headed by Dr. Reynolds and
the natives under the leadership of the
commandant were strained and they were
about to declare war against each other.
Americans Guard Consulate.
Dr. Reynolds appealed to the Ameri
cans living at Ceiba to assemble in the
consulate. Every one responded with his
rifle. Several thousand rounds of am
munition were quickly stored in the con
sulate and everything made ready to re
sist an attack. The Americans took
turns in patrolling the consulate and,
when their time expired, went home
heavily armed. The wives of the Amer
icans were also armed and given posi
tive instructions to shoot at the first
Eagle Screams Warning.
Dr. Reynolds informed the State De
partment at Washington of the conditions
at Ceiba. The Honduras Government
asked at once his recall on the ground
that the Ceiba officials could not protect
him and a curt note was sent -to Presi
dent Bonilla informing him that the
United States would hold his Government
responsible for Dr. Reynolds' life.

HILL ID HIS ORES
Coal Rate Hearing at Wash
ington Opens Possibilities.
PRY INTO HIS HOLDINGS
Vice-President Farrington Swears
Great Northern ' Owns No Iron
Mines but That Hill's Money
MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 8. (Special.)
When James J. Hill appears on the wit
ness stand at the coal-rate hearing,
which begins September 21 at the of
fices of the railroad company in the
capital, it is likely he will find him
self called upon to tell more about him
self and his Great Northern Railroad
than pertains to the price of carrying
coal from the head of the lakes to
points on the Milwaukee Railroad. Ed
ward T. Young, Attorney-General, had
an executive consultation with mem
bers of the State Railroad Commission
on the subject of Mr. Hill, his Great
Northern Railroad and his Northern
Minnesota iron mines and their rela
tion to the new Federal law governing
One of the important sections .of the
new law is that in which common own
ership of mines and railroads carrying
ore from such mines is prohibited. In
recent years the rumor had got about
that James J. Hill is second only to the
great steel trust In ownership of Min
nesota Iron ore deposits. Saturday
Railroad Commissioner C. F. Staples
and Mr. Young reviewed the testimony
given in the recent rate hearings by R.
I. Farrington, second vice-president of
the Great Northern. There Mr. Farring
ton freely testified that in acquiring
its Northern roads the Great Northern
had to purchase therewith large iron
ore properties and that to make such
extensive purchases Mr. Hill used his
personal credit in the Eastern money
At another point in the evidence Mr.
Farrington testified under oath that
the Great Northern does not own any
iron mines. He admitted, however, that
for development of the property in the
state Mr. Hill has advanced money;
also that, when the Hill iron holdings
hav been sold, it has always been part
of the contract that all the ore should
be carried over Great Northern lines.
The question to bo decided by the
authorities seems to be whether the
new Federal law Is violated by the per
sonal holdings of Mr. Hill In iron
properties and at the same time a con
trolling interest In the Great Northern
COMING NEARER TOGETHER
Progress Toward Lease of Ore Lands
to Steel Trust.
NEW YORK, Sept. 8. The receipt of
the decision handed down yesterday by
the Supreme Court of Minnesota In the
Virginia Sliver mine, which is regarded
as definitely establishing the rights of
the Great Northern Railway in the Jease
of certain ore lands from the state, caused
a report In Wall street today that tho
long-delayed agreement between the Great
Northern and the United States Steel Cor
poration for the lease and operation of
the so-called Hill mines in the Lake Su
perior district was soon to be announced.
The court decision removes one of the
obstacles to the proposed agreement for
the constitutionality of the law under
which the Great Northern had secured
The negotiations of the Hill ore hold
ings have been pending for nearly three
years, and several times have been re
ported near a conclusion. To guard
against the properties being held Idle by
the steel corporation, the Great Northern
has contended for a lease based upon
the payment of royalty on each ton of
ore mined, with a minimum output to be
agreed upon. The Hill lands are claimed
to be second in value only to those of
the Flower Iron Mining Company. Most
of the Hill holdings are as yet unexplored
and it is said .that any estimates as to
their value are mere guesses.
The financial district is somewhat puz
zled as to just what the deal between
the Great Northern and the steel corpora
tion will mean when consummated. The
annual royalties and profits to the Great
Northern from the haul to the Duluth and
Superior docks cannot be estimated. In
case the steel corporation should not see
fit to work the mines to the extent
agreed upon, it would be compelled, un
der the terms offered, to pay to the rail
road company an amount equal to the
royalties on the minimum yearly output.
This minimum is variously estimated at
from 6,000,000 to 10,000,000 gross tons per

ST. - PETERSBURG, Sept. 8. The

Russian peasants, despite the present
famine and distress, is shown by a re
port of the Ministry of Finance on the
receipts from the vodka monopoly, which
for the last seven months were J183.750,-

Is Disease a Crime ?
Not very long ago, a popular msgarina
published an editorial article in which
the writer asserted, In substance, that all
disease should be regarded as criminal.
Certain It is, that much of the sickness
and suffering of mankind Is due to the
violation of certain of Nature's laws.
But to say that an sickness should be
regarded as criminal, must appeal to
every reasonable Individual as radically
It would be harsh, unsympathetic,
cruel, ye criminal, to condemn the poor,
weak, over-worked housewife who si oka
under the heavy load of household cares
and burdens, and suffers from weak
nesses, various displacements of pelvio
organs and other derangements peouliar
to her sex.
Frequent bearing of children, with its exacting-
demands upon the syttem. coupled
with the ctre. worry and labor of rearing-
large family. Is often the cause ot weak
nesses, derangements and debility which ara
aggravated by the many household caret,
and the hard, and never-ending work whlpa
the mother Is called upon to perform. Dr.
Pierce, the maker of that world-tamed rem

Ir. Pierce's Favorite Prescription says
oat one of the greatest obstacle to the cure
of this class of maladies is the fact that the
poor, over-worked housewife can not get the
needed rest from her many household oarea
and labor to enable her to secure from the
use of his " Prescription " Its full benefits. I
is a matter of frequent experience, he says.
In his extensive practice in these cases, to
meet with those In which his treatment falls
by reason of the patient's inability to abstain
from hard work long enough to be cured.
With those suffering from prolapsus, ante
version and retroversion of the uterus or
other displacement of the womanly organs.
It Is very necessary that. In addition to tak
ing bis " Favorite Prescription " they abstain
from being very much, or for long periods, on
their feet. All heavy lifting or straining of
any kind should also be avoided. As much
out-door air as possible, with moderate, light
exercise Is also very important. Let the
patient observe these rules and toe "Favor
ite Prescription " will do the rest.
