Discusses Attitude Toward Labor of
Opponent for Presidency, as Well ai
j Judge Taft'a Recent Utterances on
, the Subject.
Vf. J. Hryan, tlio Uotnocratlc candi
date for the presidency, niado a
speech on "Labor" ut a picnic of union
workers at Chicago Monday. He said.
"Tlioro are two questions intimate
ly connected with the labor problem
upon which the Democratic and Re
publlonn partlcn do not agree, and 1
not only fool at liberty to discuss
these, luit, under the circumstances, I
have no right to Ignore them One
relates to tho Ibhuo of' Injunctions, and
the other to contempt enses arising
tuntlor Injunction. The Republican
convention did not deal candidly with
tho laboring man on the subject of
tho writ of Injunction. Secretary
Taft has endeavored to amend IiIe
platform In this respect and to make
coma promises, which arc not support
cd by I1I.1 platform, but his promises
offer nothing substantial In the way
of reform, and are not binding on Re
publican senators and members.
"Mr. Taft's speech may be consid
ered as binding upon him, but the
convention which selected the Repub
lican candidates indorsed the Repub
lican platform not Mr. Taft's per
ianal viows. The Republican plat
form, while pretending to pledge some
modification of the law, contains an
exception clause which reiterates the
very language of the law. Whether
this exception clause was Inserted by
accident or design, the effect is the
same. It merely provides, In sub
stance, that restraining orders shall
not Isbuo without notice except where
mich an order can now issue without
notice. Tho platform was a triumph
for those who have been opposing the
laboring man, nnd they have been
boasting of their victory.
"Tho Democratic platform on this
rubject copies the language which the
.labor organizations submitted to the
Republican and Democratic conven
tions. Mr. Taft, In his notification
Bposcli, objects to the language. He
charges that tho nntl-lnjunctlon plank
was 'loosely drawn,' and framed for
Mho especial purpose of rendering It
susceptible to one Interpretation by
ono sot of men, and a dlnmutrletilly
opposite Interpretation by nnother.' As
Mr. Taft has had long experience ou
tho bench, and Is therefore skilled lu
the Interpretation of language, I aBk
. lilm to glvo us, If he can, two oppo
Bite interpretations of the language.
That plank demands that 'all parties
to all judicial proceedings shall bo
treated with rigid Impartiality.' Sure
ly ho cannot find two Interpretations
to tho phrase 'rigid Impartiality.'
"Speaking of industrial disputes, tho
platform declares that 'Injunctions
nhall not be Issued lu any cases In
which Injunctions would not Issuo If
no Industrial dispute were Involved.'
How can thnt language be miscon
strued or mlsl . -preted? If words
mean anything, v-. t plank means that
an industrial dispute shall not, in
Itself, bo regnrde ' is a sufficient cause
for an injunction. If an Injunction
Issues In nn industrial dispute, It must
;ie based upon nets which would juutl
jfy an Injunction If there were no In
.duttfrial dispute Involved. There Is
jjiothiuie ambiguous about It; there la
nothing (bat can be misconstrued or
misinterpreted, oven by one desiring
-ito tlnd a doujbjk' meaning. Why do tho
-Republlquu leaders attempt to rend
;nmbigulty Into those words? Simply
,becn,ttse they cannot meet the propo
vt Jury Question.
"Upon tho Jury question Mr. Taft
clearly takes lssuo with us. Ho Is
thoroughly aroused by what he re
gards as a menace to the courts. Here
Is his lament:
'Never In the history of the coun
try has there been such an Insidious
attack upon the judicial system as the
proposal to Interject a Jury trial be
tween all orders of the court made
after full hearing and the enforcement
of such orders.'
"This would come under the bend
of 'Important, If true.' But the fact Is,
our platform specifically declares that
wo favor a measure 'which passed tho
United States senate In 1896, and
which a Republican congress has ever
since refused to enact,' providing for
trial by Jury In cases of indirect con
tempt. "The Democratic platform proposes
no interference with the right of the
Judge to decide the cases of direct
contempt contempt committed In the
presence of the court neither is it
proposed to interfere with the right of
the Judge to determine the punish
ment for Indirect contempt. All that
is sought Is the substitution of trial
by jury for trial by Judge when the
violation of the court's decree must
be established by evidence."

BRUTAL MURDER IN BOSTON.
Dismembered Boby of Actress Found
In Trunk and Furnace.
Boston's most brutal crime sinco the
death of Susan Geary, a chorus girl
four years ago, and one much rcsem
blltig It In Its details, was disclosed
by tho discovery of the torso of Mrs
Honornli Jordun, an actress, aged
twenty-three years, of Somervtltc, In
a trunk In a boarding house at 7 Han
cock street, on Deacon hill, this city
Later the head and bones of the
limb wore found in the furnace ol
the Jordan home, nt Soniervllle, and
the cnlp, hair and other remnlni
were taken from the kitchen range ol
Chester Jordan, an actor, of Sonier
vllle Is held by the pul.it. charged
with the murder and, according tc
ofllrers. he mnde a complete eonl.
slon of the crtnio.
According to Jordan's confession
he accidentally killed his wife Tues
day night lu a quarrel at their home
and, becoming desperate over what he
had done, he went out and bought a
butcher's knife, razor and shears, cut
up the body and placed the torso lu a
trunk. He then planned to take the
steamer Harvard for New York and
throw the parts of the body over
board. The fact that the Harvard was
laid off, owing to an nccldent, disar
ranged his plans and he was obliged
to hire a hackmnn to take the trunk
to a Boston boarding house to awnlt
a more favorable opportunity. The
discovery of the crime was due to the
suspicious of the bnckmnn, George
W. Collins, who had In mind the nu
merous robberies which have taken
place about Boston recently, nnd sur
mlslng from its weight that the trunk
contained silverware, notified the pence.

RIDE ENDS IN DOUBLE TRAGEDY.
Horse Returns to Livery Stable With
Bodies of Victims In Rig.
Murder nnd suicide ended the fare
well ride of Joel F. Raker, a carpen
ter, and Mrs. Sylvia Hernlce, a wid
ow, ut Wabash, 1ml , Saturday night.
It is said Mrs. Hernlce had planned
to go to Benton Harbor to be mar
ried, and her drive with Baker, an
avowed admirer, was to tell him his
fate. At 5:30 a. m. a traveling man
went to a livery stnble here to hire a
rig, lu front of the barn he noticed
a horse standing, with n man and
woman in tho buggy, both apparently
asleep. He aroused tho hostler, who
opened the doors, and the horse en
tered the stable. No attempt was
made to arouse the occupants of the
vehicle, but later the proprietor of
the place, thinking they wero Intoxi
cated, sent for an officer and an In
vestigation was made. Five bullets
had been shot Into tho woman's, body,
amV in Baker's right hand was a re
volver. His hat was upon his head,
and he was sitting in a natural po
sition, dead. Investigation showed
that Baker had killed his companion
while both were out ot the buggy.
1 lie then loaded her lifeless form Into
he vehicle and started to drive back
to Wabash. On the way here he
killed himself. The horse had re
turned to the stable with the bodies.
FLEET SAILS FOR ALBANY.
American Battleships Finish Their
Visit at Melbourne.
The Connecticut, flagship of Rear
Admiral Sperry, commander of the
American fleet, weighed auehor at Mel
bourne, Saturday, and she pointed her
prow down the bay. Fourteen other
white hulled craft followed In the
wake, and thus began the cruise to
Albany, Aus. The New Jersey re
mained lu the harbor to convoy the
American mail, which U expected
soon, to the fleet.
At soon as the vessels passed down
the bay iu slnule file, tho hills of Mel
bourne echoed the farewell salutes of
the fleet and tho batteries ashore. Ex
cursion boats and launches, loaded
down with peop't, escorted the fleot
to the headlands, where they re
mained until the American vessels
were lost in the fog. The headlauds
and shore were crowded with specta
tors to witness the end ot the history
