fie Is One of the Greatest Practical
Statesmen of the Times.
General Porfirlo Diaz is serving his
lxth term as President of Mexico ,
jays the Chicago Chronicle. He has
peen nominated for a seventh term by
* convention of National Liberals.
This , it Is understood , is not in'ac-
. eordance with the wishes of President
piaz , nor with his political plans. He
< s now 73 years old. He has been act-
jve In public life for fifty years , and
ivhen re-elected President in 1900 he
planned to resign before his sixth
ferm expired , EO that tinder the Gon-
fctitution one of his Cabinet might be
Elected President by Congress.
. Early in 1002 it was announced , that
'Diaz would retire from oflice when tke
Work of the Pan-American Congress
'had been completed , or that he would
finnounce his determination not to
terve- another ternf : This announce
ment was icceived "with * a | * little favor
In Mexico as in- thY United States. In
this country Diaz seamed to have no
enemies and in his o\vri country he
had no rivals.
The people of Mexico , the capitalists
Interested in the development of the.
country , the statesmen of the \vcrld in
tercsted in gocd government , were of
one mind against the proposition to re
tire. President Diaz hiniFe'f evUently
. * has recalled his decision to i etire , be-
j cause he said to those who U'lidercd a
V reuomination : "It Is the duty of every
citizen to serve his tojntry as long
. nnd at as many posts as his fellow
citizens may dcsiie. "
, This Is a doctrine of continuity' in
-oflice peculiar in Meiico unuer Diaz.
; He came into power as a military hero.
He was elected to the Presidency in
' ' J1S76 , because of his patriotism , his
courage , his prowess in war and his
Jrornantic career.
He retired in 1SSO , because the Con
stitution prevented his re-election. He
Tvas re-elected in 1SS4 , because the
Constitution permitted re-election and
because the people wanted him. So
great was the need of such a man at
the head of the nation that the Con
stitution was amended that he might
b ? continued in oflice.
He has been President twenty-three
years. He lias quieted faction. He
lias established order and has given
the Republic prosperity and Influence.
He Is as much a popular hero as he
Tvas the day he entered the Mexican ,
Capital twenty-eight years ago as dic-
, tator. He appeals as strongly to the
Imagination of a romance 1 : viug pee
--In-addition , he has proved himself
io be one of the greatest practical
"statesmen of the timp. He has suc-
jceadcd as an executive and as a diplo
matist , and the world acquiesces in the
[ Mexican disposition to 'reverse the
'rule in republics , and make a man
President for life. f
There is only one Diaz. ' .
People Eat Uess Bread.
"Well , liow's business ? " asked a re
porter of a wholesale flour agent
"You would be surprised , " he re
plied , "to know that in the time of
general prosperity we are selling le.-s
flour thin in hard times. From 1893
to 1895 1 sold uore flour than ever be
fore or since. Business Is thriving in
many lines , but th ? country is too pros-
i > erous for the flour men and the bak-
Ibfs. " ,
"Why is it ? Simply because the people
ple have money enough to buy other
{ things than bread. When the country
Is hard up people get along on bread
Us'the stapleof the table : Now they
use the fancy cereals , breakfast foods ,
can use more meat and vegetables and
generally expand their diet , which , of
/ course , lessens the demand for bread. "

LEXINGTON , S. C. , Oct. 16.-
The trial of James H. Tillman , who
was charged witb , tbe murder of N.
G. Gonzales , editor of The State , in
Columb.a , on January 15 last , ended
in an acquittal. "The jury be
fore which Till man has been on trial
since September 28 , brought in a ver
dict of not guilty , thus ending a
{ judicial hearing which has engrossed
the attention of the public of South
Carolina as none other has in the
last quarter of a century. The jury
was out for twenty hours before ar
riving at a verdict. Never was a
case in South Carolina courts more
vigorously contested than this. The
solicitor was assisted in the prosecu
tion by four other lawyers , while the
accused was defended by seven law-
ye'rSj an exceptional array of counsel.
More than a hundred witnesses gave
testimony , about as many on"one side
as on the other , and nine lawyers
argued before the jury.
Mr. Tillman left on an afternoon
train for his home in - , ac
companied by his wife .and friends
from his home county.
Not a sound hacl emanated 'from
the jury room , when Judge Gray xjon-
vened court at 9:30 o'clock to.
indicate that'an agreement had beenj
reached. Civil business was taken'
up and more than an hour had
elapsed before word came that the ,
jury had determined upon a verdict.j
The jurors filed in and took the-
seats they had occupied for so many |
days. The defendant occupied his !
customary position among his lawyers - }
yers , facing the jury. [
"Gentlemen , have you agreed upon , '
a verdict" was the time worn inquiry ]
made by the clerk. The foreman replied - ;
plied in tbe affirmative , and ? at the" "
same , time handed tbe veidict to the-
clerk. It took but an instant to read ;
it , and when the words "not guilty" !
were heard , sorno of the friends of. '
the defendant gave vent to their feelings - ,
ings in a shoutthough the court hjdi
previously admonished those present
not to make any demonstration.
The motion by counsel for tbe de
fense for the discharge of the defend
ant was immediately signed by Judge
Grtiry , the solicitor assenting , and
Tillman was at liberty. Wben the
legal formalities had been gone ,
through with , Tillman walked up to
the bench and shook hands with the
judge afcer which be sbook the
hands of each of the jurors and later
was surrounded by his friends , who
extended their congratulations.
He left the court room in company
with his attorneys , but parted with
them at the front door to go across
'the ' street to the jail , visiting that
institution for the last time to gather
up his effects. He has been in cus
tody since January 15 , his application
for bail having been refused.
Mrs. Tillman and the defendant's
mother were not in the court room
when the verdict was announced , but
the former Lad been apprised of an
agreement and was at tbe jail to
await the announcement and met her
husband there. The mother had
beard at her hotel- some two blocks
away , that the jury had come in and
was hastening' her way to the court ,
house when she met her son coming'-
out on the street. Learning the re
sult she threw her arms around his1
neck. .Later all gathered at the
hotel where they received their
friends and relatives. Senator Till
man was not present having gone to
hi * home at Trenton , where his wife
is racovering from iniuries received
in a runaway accident. A telegram
was sent him advising him of the
The court in the indictment charg
ing the carrying of concealed weap
ons was ignored during the trial and !
.the jury took no action on it. ,
After the verdict wai announced
the clerk held up the pistols which
bad figured In tbe trial and offered
them to the defendant who waved i
them off , saying : "They are not
mine. ' ' '
James H. Tillman , after bis ac
quittal made the following statement
to the Associated press :
"I feel very grateful at the result
of the verdict , but at no time did I
apprehend any serious consequences.
1 , of course deeply regret the death
of Mr. Gonzales , but 1 was forced to
do what 1 did. I have never appre
hended a conviction , for I felt that
I did no more than anj man would ,
have done under the same circumstances - j
stances and what I was compelled to ,
do. My position' was fully stated io
the testimony I'gave on the stand. I
" ] jf did not a k for a change of
venue because I was convinced that
on account of the prejudice in Kich-
land county that I could not tret a
fair and impartial trial in that
icounty. I felt sure as soon as mj
case could he presented to an impar-
'tial jurv , I could be vindicated. Tbe
verdict'has justified the correctness
'of my judgment. '

Interview \vitli Flrnt Suspect Brought
Out at Cincinnati Trial Kynu Tells
of 3Ionoy Trunsacltous.
CINCINNATI , Oct. 15. Darin ? the
second trial .of Miller and Johns
for conspiracy in connection with the
Decently exposed postal frauds , nine
witnesses were examined and the gov
ernment has four more io call. Court
wa gin session from 8 a , m. until
after 6 p. ra The principal witnesses
were Ryan and the officials from Wash
ington. The defense was no : taken by
surprise until in the aftsrno > n , when
the st6n vraphic reports of the private
secretaries of Fourth Assistant Post
master General Bristovv and of General
Robbof interviews with Miller were
introduced as evidence.
Joseph TVatsoD , secretary and
s'ehogrupher to the foirth assistant
postmaster genera , testified to having
been concealed in the ofilce of his
chief while General ROOD and Chief
Inspector Cochran had their first in
terview with Miller about the reports
o" the postollice inspectors regarding
the decisions in the Ryan case and the
discovery of his relations with Jones ,
ant did not know that a stenographer
( -.vns concealed in the room , as he
did in the last case when he made an
equally lengthy statement and signed
the report made" by Mr. Tullis. The
extent of the detective work that
has been done in these cases by the
goverment was never disclosed until
during the afternoon session , when
verbatim repjrts of these interviews
of Miller were submitted in evidence ,
notwithstanding the objection and
exception of counsel for the defense.
It is now known that more of the
detective work of the government
will be disclosed tomorrow when
postoilice inspectors are to take the
When the trials were resumed to
day the direct examination of J. J.
Ryan was still in progress. At the
adjournment of court last night
Judge Thompson took under advise
ment the objection of counsel to
Ryan testifying to wuat Johns said
He then read from bis original
stenographic notes all that was said
during the two hours and more that
these officials were thus questioning
Miller regarding the case. It requir
ed one hour and a half for him to
read the note , which he went over
much more quickly than the inter
view was carried on. The difference
ff an hour in lime was accounted for
by the witness because of the hesita
tion of Miller at times during the in
terview. Tbe sensational appearance
ot Watson on the stand was followed
f oun afterwards by Charles H. Robb ,
a-sistant attorney general for the
posioffice department , being called
and he produced a copy of the trans
cribed stenographic notes of his sec
ret sry , "Mr. Tullis , of another long'
interview with Miller whe.n the same
p irties were present.
At the lirst meeting of Miller
with Robb and Cochran the defend-
to him about what Miller may have
said to John concerning future diffi
When court convened today Judge
Thompson decided that a prima facie
case had been sufficiently made out
tfi permit the testimony of Ryan to
be admitted. Counsel for the de
fense excepfed to the ruling , and the
exnminition of Ryan by the govern-
in nt counsel was resumed.
While Ryan procseded to repeat
in detail a conversation between
Johns and himself in a room at a
Terre Haute hotel , during which the
witness claimed to have made a con
tract .with Johns for $4,500 for a fa
vorable ruling from Mi tier , counsel
for the defendants interposed fre
quent objections which were over
ruled by Judge Thompson. Ryan
also testified that all his future
transactions were with Johns as the
middleman up to last December ,
when Johns came to Cincinnati and
thej met in a room at the Gibson
house , where Ryan gave Johns SL100
in cash and S3J400 in two checks.-
Ryan continued his story abaut sub
sequent transaction * in which he said
Johns wanted more funds right alnng
until the -Ait-ness finally made a
statement of the whole matter to I he
postoffice inspectors and made no
further efforts to1 get bets on the
races through the mails.
Supply of Food is Scant
MOBILEAla. , Oct. 15 According
to information received by steam
ship from Gaorgetown , Grand Cay
man , the conditions on the islands
as a result of the hurricane and flood
are deplorable and the people are
suffering from fever. It is also
stated that the supply of food is
scant. The fever is attributed to
the decaying of sap trees which were

TUXEDO PAKE , IT. Y. , Oct. 14.
The Birrapo river , after rising
higher than ever before , so far as
existing records show , and sweeping
away many small dams , several
bridges and houses and a section of
the Erie railroad track , is now slowly
subsiding , and the Tuxedo dam ,
which id was feared could notwith-
stand tbe flood , is considered safe.
So fjr as known only two lives were
lost. Gforge Nixon and a compan
ion , employed on E. H. Earriman's
estate at Arden , when driving home
from Central Valley , were overtaken
by the flood and drowned. Of the
damage to property along the course
of the Kamapo no estimate can yet
be made Tbe village of Ramapo was
nearly obliterated by the overflowing
of Piers-jo's lake and the breaking of
tbe dam at its lower end. Tbe cot
tage dwellers fled to the hills and
have been looked after by those
whose homes were on higher grojnd.
The dam at Cranberry pond , near
Arden , burst and tbe waters spread
havoc through that valley. Several
houses were flooded , the electric
light plant was disabled , and the fish
hatchery was vvhollj swept away.
Tbe flood also washed away the
shanties of the Italian and Hun
garian colonies in the lower part of
the valley. " All the inhabitants were
rescued and carried by boats to snfe-
NEW YORK , Oct 14 With the
receding of the flot ls , reported from
all quarters , PateraonPassaic and the
other water-swept New Jersey towns
are relieved of further peril and are
beginning now to get a clear idea of
the extent of devastation.
In Patersoa alone tbe damage to
property is estimated at $2.000,000 ,
without taking account of tne loss in
wages to the thousands who have
been temporarily deprived of occupa
tion , by tbe shutting down of fac
tories The water is reported to
have fallen four feet below the high
est mark and the only possible
source of damage would be the burst
ing of the great water mains which
were undermined by the flood. The
distress continues great , and fully
five hundred persons were still com
pelled to seek fed and shelter in tbe
armory. No additional fatalities
were reported throughout the da } * .
In Passaic tbe damage is estimated
to be at least equal to that in Pater-
son. Many adjacent vil ages still
were under water today , but with
the falling of tbe waters all danger
.of a collapse of tbe great Dundee
Jdam was declared to be past.
Traffic was resumed during the
day on all the railroad lines entering
New York with the exception of the
lucal service on tue main line of tbe

PATERSON.V. J. , Oct. 14. The
people of this unfortunate city are
beginning to realize the extent of tbe
great flood which began last "Friday.
Nearly two entira wards , tak'ng in
tbe manufacturing section , have
been under water since that day.
Tnis morning thousands of men ,
women and children employed in
different mills and factories found
.they could not go to w-irk on ac-
.count of those plants being shut
down. A great many of these people
have also been driven from tbeii
homes , and have neither food nof
The heaviest damage in Paterson
was to the manufacturers. It is im
possible to give an accurate estimate
of the total loss , but conservative es-
bimates are about two million.
The police and firemen have been
engaged since Saturday morning in
the work of rescuing families from
tbe upper floors or the loofs of their
houses in the flooded district , and
the work is still-going on.
Today the .vater continued to fall
and there did not seem to be any
chance of further damage being done
unless another severe storm should
set in. There are still many blocks
under water and an examination c.f
the flooded districts cannot be made
until the water disappears. The
health authorities have a difficult
task before them in devising means
to prevent an epidemic of sickness
in the flooded territory. The people
who were afraid to leave their nomes
will not be allowed to return until
the districts are in a sanitary con

An Indian Army Offlcer'ii Theory of
the Drcnd Dincnne.
In an article In the Indian Medical
Gazette , Captain E. II. Host , I. M. S. ,
attributes the rise in cancer mortality
to an increased consumption of sugar ,
in the form of sweetmeats and other
delicacies of modern confectionery ,
and a corresponding diminution in the
use of salt-preserved articles of diet
Ills theory Is that malignant disease la
parasitic In origin , and Is due to the
Invasion of the body by a saccbaromy-
sete , the growth of which Is favored
oy glucose , but inhibited by sub
stances containing chlorine , and only
Admissible when the amount of chlo-
; Ine ha the body falls below normal.
Some of his experiments , which he re
cords In support of this view , ore rath-
tr remarkable. He has cultivated sac-
tharomycetes from a variety of tu
mors on sterile cane sugar , and has
Also prepared what he describes as "a
Kind of tumor jam , " by preserving portions
tions of tumors in the same medium.
Sections of this "jam" show "the tu
mor cell as usual , but the saccharo-
mycetes abounding in and between
them. " lie passed chlorine gas
through his cultures of saccharomy-
cetes , and found tliaf it "rapidly killed
the organisms , and it is evidently the
chlorine that is the active agent. "
According to Captain Itost , the guid
ing principle in the treatment of can
cer should be to diminish the amount
of glucose in the body and increase
the amount of chlorine , thereby ren
dering the patient's body an unfavor
able culture medium for the specific
micro-organisms , lie has put this
theory into practice upon ten patients ,
his treatment consisting "first , of a
strict diabetic diet , and , secondly , of
piling in sodium chloride into the
body , and preventing its excretion as
much as possible. " The results are
said to have been most successful ,
but , unfortunately , the patients them
selves do not appear to have been
unanimous as to the advantages of the
treatment they were receiving , since
four out of their number ran away.
Experiments were also tried upon ani
mals , cancerous material and "saccha-
romycetes" obtained by culture from
cancers being used for inoculation ;
various lesions were produced , and in
Borne Instances the influence of a salt
diet upon the affected animals was
studied. In imitation of the human
patients , "one guinea pig and one cat
absconded , " apparently before the
benefits of sodium chloride had been
accorded to them.
The announcement that sweetmeats
predispose to cancer , if it finds its
way into the cheaper sensational jour
nalism , may prove alarming to sun
dry juvenile and feminine readers ; but
if it checks their appetite for contec-
tionery it will at least improve their
digestion ; and , although the use of so
dium chloride as an antidote would
engender a thirst which might be
slaked unwisely , there Is little fear of
so unpalatable a remedy becoming'
popular. Still , we think that Captain
Host would have been wise in defer
ring the publication of his theories
until he had established them on a
somewhat broader scientific basis.

Refused to Profit by Carelessness
in Record ins Early Transfers.
An incident , which exhibits the sterl
ing integrity of a man who could with
stand the temptations of wealth rather
than do the smallest act of injustice ,
is told in H. M. Chittenden's "History
of Steamboat Navigation on the Mis
souri River. " The principal actor was
one of the early settlers of St. Louis ,
a Mr. LeBarge , who had purchased a
small tract of land for which he paid
twenty-five dollars.
Land was then of very little value ,
and transfers were often made without
deed and "with no more formality than
in exchanging cattle or horses. In
this way Mr. LeBarge traded his land
on what is now Glair street , St. Louis ,
to Chaurin Lebeau for a horse.
Long years afterward , when these
transactions were almost forgotten ,
and the property had become very
valuable , a lawyer presented himself
to the old gentleman and asked him
if he had ever owned any land on
Cedar street. Mr. LaBarge replied in
the affirmative , and described Its local
ity. The lawyer then asked him when
and how he disposed of it. He could
not at first recall , but Mrs. LeBarge
remembered the circumstances and re
lated them to the lawyer , at the same"
time remarking to her husband that
that was the way they got their horse
to set themselves up on the farm with.
The lawyer then assured Mr. Le
Barge that the title to this property
was slill vested in him , and that he
could hold It against all comers , for
there was absolutely no record of the-
conveyance In existence.
The old gentleman , with a look of
Indignation , asked the lawyer if he
took him for a thief. . ,
"I traded that land , " said he , "to
Chaurin Lebeau for a horse , which"
was worth more to me than the land ; ,
was. I shall stand by the bargain
now. If Chaurin Lebeau's heirs havel
no title , tell them to come to me and.
[ will make them a deed before I

where ice may be found on any day
If the year.
