WASHINGTON, Sept 17. With the
double purpose of protecting the Jew of
the Balkan states and preventing the over
throw from the Balkan to the United States
of a horde of paupers, Secretary Hay haa
adopted the courae of appealing to the pow
ers of Europe to force one of their chil
dren to observe the obligations of humanity
In the case of the Jews.
The appeal takes the form of a paper,
remarkable In several reapecta, which baa
been dispatched in Identical form to every
embassador and minister of the United
States residing In one of the countries of
Europe which were partlea to the famous
treaty at Berlin of 1878. namely: Oreat
Britain, France. Germany, Russia, Italy,
Austria and Turkey, marking the termina
tion of the Turko-Rusela war and the cre
ation, by the direct act of the powers, of
the independent Balkan , etates. Because
the powers are thus responsible for the ex
istence of Roumanla, the culprit In this
case, the eecretary of state haa directed
the note to them In the hope that they
will bring thle government to a sense of
its duties to ameliorate the frightful con
dition of the Roumanlaa Jews.
In a measure this action by the Depart
ment of Btate may be traced to numerous
petitions from Jewish societies and hu
manitarians generally, as well as to the
warnings of publicists respecting the grow
ing danger of the immigration of degen
erates. What the President Wishes.
The text of the document Is as follows:
nwpA PTM15NT or PTATP!, warhino
TON, Bept. 11, 1902. Sir: In the course of
of an instruction recently sent to the min
ister accredited to the government of Rou
manla regarding the bases of negotiation be
gun with that government looking to a con
vention of naturalisation between the United
Btates and Roumanla, oertaln considerations
were set forth for the minister's guidance
concerning the character of the emigration
from that country, the causes which con
strain it and the consequences so far as they
adversely affect the United States.
"It haa aeemed to the .president appro-,
priate that these conslderationa, relating
aa they do to the obligations entered into by
the slgnatorlea of the treaty of Berlin of
July IS, 1878, should be brought to the at
tention of the governments concerned and
commended to their consideration. In the
hope that tf tbcy are so fortunate as to
meet the approval of the several powers
such measures as to them may seem wise
may be taken to persuade the government
of Roumanla to reconsider the consideration
of the grievances In question.
Arms Still Open for Blent Kind.
"The United States welcome now, as It has
welcomed from the foundation of its gov
ernment, the voluntary immigration of all
aliens coming hither under conditions Bi
ting them to become merged in the body pol
ltto of this land. Our laws provide the
means for them to become incorporated In
dlstlngulshably in the mass of citizens and
prescribes their absolute equality, wlth the
native-born, guaranteeing to them equal
civil rights at home and equal protection
abroad. The conditions are few, looking to
their coming aa free agents, so circum
stanced physically and morally aa to supply
ths healthful and intelligent material of
free cltliensblp. The pauper, the criminal,
the contagiously or Incurably diaeased are
excluded from the benefits of immigration
only whra they are likely to become a source
of danger or a burden upon the community.
The voluntary character of their coming is
essential, hence we abut out all Immigra
tion assisted or constrained by foreign
agencies. The purpose of our generous
treatment of the alien Immigrant is to ben
efit us and him alike cot to afford to an
other state a field upon which to caat Its

which It is Incumbent upon his adoptive
Btate to protect him.
Shoald Be Careful.
The foregoing considerations, whilst
pertinent to the examination of the pur
pose and acope of a naturalization treaty,
have a larger aim. It behooves the state
to scrutlnze moat zealously the character
of Immigration from a foreign land, and

BOSTON, Sept. 1. icrlmony was not
wanting for a time In the democratic state
convention in Tremont Temple today, but
in the end harmony was restored and the
state ticket was enthusiastically greeted.
The ticket follows:
For Governor William A. Gaston of
For Lieutenant Governor John C. Crlsby
For Secretary of State Wlllmore B. Stone
For Treasurer Thomas C. Thatcher of
For Auditor J. L. Challfoux of Lowell.
For Attorney General John J. Flaherty
It might be aald that In naming Colonel
Boston to the head of the ticket precedent
was shattered. Inasmuch as he was nomi
nated and given a platform of his own dic
tation. Not unlike the famous conventions
of 1836. and 1900, the fight was over the na
tional Issue on the platform. The test of
strength was between Colonel Gaston on
the one hand and George Fred Williams,
once the stalwart leader of the silver dem
ocrats, on the other. In this battle Mr.
Williams was utterly routed, with the pre

Mr. Williams was chairman of the com
mittee on resolutions and at first proposed
the endorsement of the Kansae City plat
form. In deference to the protests of Jo
slah Qulncy, a member of the committee
speaking for Colonel Gaston, he consented
to waive the endorsement and proposed
planks In which the national question of
trusts, monopolies and corporations were
dealt with in atrong language.
Mr. Qulncy wrote a platform which was
acceptable to Mr. Gaston, whose conven
tion strength was estimated rightfully, as
it proved, at four to one over Charlee S.
Hamlin, the other candidate for the nomi
nation. In committee last night Mr. Qulncy's
draft was accepted by a majority vote of
14 to 7, which was repeated before the con

The convention opened with trouble
brewing. It came soon after Mr. Gaston's
nomination, when the matter of platform

was one of bitter words, during which the
delegates, objelng to Mr.-WllliafW sar

majority report, representing the platform

ticket as given above was then completed.
Immediately thereafter Mr. Hamlin, taking
the platform, asked that Mr. Gaston's nomi
nation be made unanimous, which waa done
amid cheers, and the convention adjourned.

Before the proceedlnga were opened Mr.
Williams made a atatement. In which he
A man Is not beaten who has not been
in a fight? Well, 1 am only lust beginning
to tight. I have been lulled Into a false
security during the summer ami have been
led to believe that Colonel Gaston and
his supporters would not make any effort
to renounce the policy of the party as
laid down at the last national convention.
1 have had distinct assurances to that
effect from Mr. Qulncy and from many of
Colonel Qaston'a friends. Had It been
supposed two months ago that the party
would turn Its back on the policies Colonel
Gaston could not have got more than one
tenth of the dele-gates to the convention.
But I have never been beaten by the
Boston machine yet. Whenever I have
appealed to the people they have sustained
me and I believe they will again when
the issue la presented.
William 8, McNary, chairman of the
state committee, called the convention to
order. He was elected temporary chair
man. The committee on permanent organ
ization reported In favor of Congressman
Henry F. Naphen of South Boston for per
manent chairman. Congressman Naphen on
taking the chair said In part:

gram.) Gottlieb Niegenflnd, the Pierce
county murderer, in in the doctor's hands. He
was shot thts afternoon five miles south
vest of here. Thursdsy night of last week
he stayed with Henry Carstens, three mll ?s
from the scene of the crime, riding to
within two miles of here on Friday morn
ing with Carstens and then riding four
miles south with E. W. Cullen, county ;
commissioner. From that time trace of
him was lost.
This afternoon Liveryman Dave Leary
slsrted out to try and locate a suspect
that had been aeen In this neighborhood
along the road four miles southeast. Two
men came up with Gustave Rehmua. They
were driving some cattle. Leary thought
one ot these men waa Niegenflnd, and
knowing Cullen to be at the house of Amos
Lease, along the road they aere traveling,
he drove along with the rattle to that
place. Niegenflnd recognized Cullen and
spoke to him. Leaving Cullen and Frank
Lease to follow with the cattle, Leary
then' went to the house and procured a
shotgun and the assistance of Perry Borum,
who had a 22-callber single-shot rifle.
These two went across the field to In
tercept the herd on another road; they
had scarcely arrived when the men showed
up, advancing along the road. They called
upon Niegenflnd to throw up his bands.
His reply wss to draw a revolver and shoot
point blank at Leary, at the same timo
springing behind his companion and using
him for a shield. He fired his remaining
five loads as soon as his companion got
out of the way.
The three, Dave Leary, Perry Borum and
Frank Lease, poured into Nelgenfind a per
fect fusllade until he fell.
Seeing that he waa not dead, they pro
cured a spring wagon and brought him to
town, placing him under the care of the
doctor. He hae been recognized by several
who knew him when living near Hoskins.
He was unconscious when brought to town.
Nelgenfind came to the farm of Gustave
Rahmua last Friday and hired out as a farm
band and has been there since.
Loaded Down with Shot.
About 11 o'clock Niegenflnd recovered con
ecloucncss and the attending physicians say
there Is no danger of his dying from the
wounds, though be Is suffering great pain.
The character of his wounds show there
were numeroue shots fired. His left arm
is shattered at the elbow, the heavy mus
cles of his right, arm are badly lacerated by
shot, there Is a- 22-callber bullet wound
in his hip, another one In the fleshy part
of his right leg and one bullet plowed along
the scalp. In addition to these distinctly
marked woundg there are scattering shot
all over his . body from the blp up.
There were a large nnmbea- -of . people
from Pierce county in town this evening,
but most ot them have gone home. They
were quiet and there was no talk of lynch
ing. Among the Pierce visitors was the son
of Briar, the murdered man, and brother
of the murdered woman. He positively
Identifies the prisoner as Niegenflnd. He
says that neither himself nor the other sur
viving members ot the Briar family have
slept to amount to anything since the mur
der, as they were In constant fear that Nle
glnflnd would carry out his threat to re
turn and kill the rest of the family.
History of Crime.
Niegenflnd and his wife bad separated on
account of his cruel treatment and she had
secured a divorce from him. She resumed
the nsme of her former husband, Peters,
and went to live with her father, Albert
Briar. Nleglnflnd went to South Dakota,
where he remained for a time, returning
a few days before the tragedy.

sur; . 'i that any one whose name bad
ever been coupled with the subject of an
archy was to be sssoclated with those hav
ing him In their care while here.

tertainment committees, also found himself
connected with the gossips going the round
terause of his friendship for Mr. Rosenthal,
but he vehemently denied having any Inter
est in anarchists or their beliefs. He did
not tender his resignation.

SHAW SPEAKS GUARDEDLY
Says It Is Due General Henderson that
Hla Tariff Position Be Not
WASHINGTON. Sept. 17. Secretary Shaw
said today, in commenting further upon
Speaker Henderson's declination of a re
nomination, that while he refrained either
from criticising or Justifying the speaker's
course, he considered it of very great Im
portance and due to General Henderson
that his position be not misunderstood.
Secretary Shaw said:
Either many newspapers misunderstand
General Henderson's position or I do. 1
rnderstand turn to ntand pat on the tariff
plank of the Iowa platform, which favors
such revisions as changed conditions make
advisable. In his sO'lress to the repub
lican voters of the Third district of Iowa
he says: "'While I have been sgalnst a
general revision I have never been op
pesed lo making needed changes and I am
Nor do I understand him to object to
the nntl-truat plank, whlrh la In a different
lection of the xtate platform, which only
declares against allowing- the tariff to In
come a shelter for trusts. It goes no fur
ther than Intimating that such a thing
may occur. It does not say such a thing
does exist. Commenting on this plank. In
his address the general says: "It Is a
bold declaration that If modifications of
the tariff are required lo prevent monopoly
from sheltering itself under the wings of
protection, then tariff shall be modified to
prevent that condition."
As I understand him, he finds himself
tit able to agree with the Interpretation
placed upon this plank by many of his
ccrrtltuenta and Arm party friends. To
rihat. If any, extent the republicans of
owa are advocating a removal of the
tariff on Irust-made or controlled gooda ss
a remedial measure, I am unable to speak.
I think (leneral Henderson's friends ought
to seo to It that his position be correctly
Interpreted to tho people and that he bo
not placed In the false light of having
declined to be a candidate for conKrese be
cause oppoPod, to use the language of the
Iowa, platform, "to su,h changes In the
tariff from time to time as Ix-coina advis
able through Ihe progress of our Industries
and their chanting relations to Ihe com
merce of the world."
