Candidate to Lead the
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, May 21. (Special.) Al
though the great political conventions are
till a year off, already the leader of the
republican and democratic parties are dis
cussing candidates and platforms with as
much enthusiasm as If the conventions haa
been called. With the republicans but on
candidate Is under consideration for presi
dent, thiftT of Theodore Roosevelt. It Is
true that Mr. Roosevelthus made enemies
among the railroadn and a portion of the
money power of the country In his ag
gressive action In curtailing trusts and
mergers, but the people of the country are
standing back of Mr. Roosevelt and they
will do the nominating In the national re
publican convention of 1904. While the pres
ident may now and then have been a little
quick on tho trigger," as sentenllously ex
pressed by Senator Foraker, it Is the
"quickness" that meets the hearty endorse
ment of the "plain people." They like an
enthusiastic president; they even like a
strenuous president, and when voting time
comes around it is confidently believed
that President Roosevelt will have the
biggest majority ever given a republican
candidate for that exalted office.
While there is only one candidate
amongst the republicans mentioned for the
presidency, there are a host of eminent
republicans suggested for Roosevelt's run
ning mate. Myron T. Herrick of Ohio,
who in all human probability will be the
next governor of the Buckeye state, is the
last named for vice presidential honors.
Indiana Is looked upon as a state crowded
with vice presidential timber, both Sena
tor Fairbanks and Beverldge having been
mentioned for the second place on the na
tional republican ticket. Senator Fair
banks, however, having the presidential
bee busring about his head, haa quietly
Intimated to his friends that his boom for
rice president must be stopped. Senator
Fairbanks, however, would like to see his
colleague at the tall of the ticket, for
through his nomination as vice president
Senator everldge's Influence In Indiana
politico would. It la reasoned, be consider
ably lessened, a "consummation devoutly
to be wished for on the part of Senator
'"Fairbanks." Ia addition to these-republican
leaders Governor Cummins of Iowa, Sen
ator Long of Kansas, ex-Senator Thomas
H. Carter of Montana and Governor Crane
of Massachusetts have been mentioned as
rice presidential possibilities, fit associates
for the strenuous New Torker. Who the
running mate of Mr. Roosevelt will be will
largely rest with the nominee for presi
dent, his wishes In the matter being gen
erally considered by the convention, al
though there have been one or two occa
sions In our history when the head and
tail of the ticket were by no means In
v...r-rv accord. President Roosevelt's trip
through the west has greatly strengthened
him In the eyes of the empire lying west of
the Mississippi. His democratic manners and
th. ease with which he has adapted him
self to conditions have almost made him a
hero, and thousands upon thousands of
votes that were cast for Bryan In 1896 and
1900 will be cast for Roosevelt in 1904.
Democrats Aro Flonaderln.
While everything Is peaceful In the re
publican party, even the discussion of the
tariff having been abandoned through con
sideration of the trust question, the dem
ocrat soem to be floundering hopelessly
over men and measures. The Cleveland
Idea, which la the antithesis of the "Iowa
Idea," Is meeting with only moderate pro
gress.. Southern democrats ao not laae
kindly to ths Cleveland boom. They look
upon It aa a menace to their party which
If carried to a successful conclusion would
bring about complete annihilation, and
yet the conservative element within the
democratic party see In the Cleveland
movement a hope for better things. Un
questionably the agitation now going on
over the financial plank In the platform
of. 1904 will have the effect of clearing the
atmosphere considerably by the time the
democratic convention comes around. While
the conservative wing of the democratic!
party, represented by such men aa Cleve
land. Gorman, Hill and Olney, are op
posed to the reaffirmation of the financial
plank of the IBM and 1900 platforms. It is
believed that they would not seriously an
tagonise a "reaffirmation of silver" plank,
which, in view of the growing output of
gold. Is within the probabilities.
The democrats are hopelessly divided at
the present upon their candidates for the
presidency. Mr. Cleveland is wholly out
of the running. Mr. Hill is looked upon as
a dangerous candidate In view of his so
cialistic! i tendencies. There is less pro
nounced opposition to Mr. Gorman than
to any other of the-names suggested for
the head of the democratic ticket, but It is
doubtful whether the Bryan wing of the
party could be Induced to look upon Mr.
Gorman's candidacy at all favorably. For
a time the name of Judge Parker of New
York was seriously considered, sections
of the south looking upon him as the
Mooes to lead the party out of the wilder
ness, but his boom was shortlived, and the
leaders again began to caat about for a
man In whose personality all the prin
ciples of democracy are embodied. In a
quiet way the friends of David K. Francis
of Missouri are at work, an effort being
already stsrted to secure the next demo
cratic national convention for Bt. Louis,
Governor Francis' home city. Those who
have attended political conventions know
full well the influences which surround
the person of the candidate when such
convention is held In his home town. It
is thought that Mr. Bryan would not an
tagonise the nomination of Mr. Francis,
and that a modified platform, particularly
upon the financial question, would not be
fought by the former standard bearer of
ths democracy. One thing Is certain,
however, that the democrats to have a
show to win must be absolutely united,
otherwise the party will go into the cam
paign with certain defeat staring It In
the face. Therefore, while everything
looks serene fur the republicans, doubt

Help Oat the Ministry.
YOKOHAMA, May 24.-Marquls Ito, ad
dressing a meeting of the opposition party
today, urged the adoption of an entente
with the ministry on the naval question. He
said that he agreed with the cabinet that
the funds to Increase the navy should be
raised by a losn Instead of a land tax. He
did not desire to make foreign politics a
pretext for an entente, but the state of af
fairs In the far east was not good, and It
was necessary that the opposition party
should preserve its solidity. The meeting
adapted the entente.

marched past the fatal wall. There were

PARIS, May 24.-The first stage In the
Paris-Madrid automobile race from Ver
sailles to Bordeaux, 343 miles, finished at
noon today, when Louis Renault dashed at
a furious pace into Bordeaux, having made
a record run of eight hours and twenty
seven minutes. An hour later M. Gabriel
arrived with a still better record of eight
hours and seven minutes. It Is estimated
from the time made that these automobiles
covered sixty-two miles an hour on the
road outside the cities. These victories,
however, were clouded by a series ot acci
dents, having In one case at least a fatal
result. At least two cars were wrecked
and Marcel Renault, the winner of the
Paris-Vienna race last year; Lorraine Bar
rows, a very well known automobillst, and
Renault's chauffeur, were seriously, and.
It Is believed, fatally Injured, while Bar
row's chauffeur was killed. Moreover, an
unconfirmed report says that a serious
accident occurred near Angoulemene, In
which the two occupants of an automobile,
the owner of which Is not yet known, were
seriously Injured and two spectators were
This number Of accidents has not caused
any great surprise here, In view of the
number of contestants In the race and the
great speed and power of their machines.
The name of W. K. Vanderbllt, Jr., dis
appeared from the reports along the route
after Ramboulllett, where he passed twenty-eighth
In order at 4:45 this morning,
going In fine form. The omission of his
name from the dispatches from Chartres,
the next town on the road, caused some
anxiety and brought forth a number of
Inquiries. It was learned that he, Henri
Fournler and Baron De Forest withdrew
from the race together before reaching
Chartres, ' All of them suffered break
downs and having lost three hours, they
decided that It was useless to continue.
Mr. Vanderbllt and Baron De Forest re
turned to the Hotel De Rita at 11 o'clock
this morning. They laughed and made
light of their withdrawal. Foxhall Keene,
Tod Sloane and W. J. Dannat, the Ameri
can artist, did not appear at the starting
line this morning when their turn was
reached and consequently did not take
part In the race, C. Gray Dlnsmore is thus
the only American left In.
Versailles paased a night of wild excite
ment It is estimated that 100,000 persons
crowded into the little town to witness
the start of the race. Soldiers with fixed
bayonets lined the track for some distance
from Versailles.
A bomb was exploded at 1:38 a. m. aa a
signal to get ready and Immediately
Charles Jarrot'a car drew Into place. Another-
bomb was fired at 3:46 o'clock for
the start, and then the enormous machine
shot forward- amtd the shouts of the thou
sanauif'Bpectators.U,'' The - other cars followed in quick suc
cession. . Mme. DeOast, the sole female
competitor In last year's Paris-Berlin race,
was again the only woman to participate
In the present contest. Her machine was
decked with flowers and her departure waa
the signal for a great ovation. She made a
splendid run, paaslng five of her com
petitors before reaching Chartres. The
crowd around Mr. Vanderbllt'a machine
prevented him from reaching the starting
line In time and he was further delayed
by a controversy with the Judges, finally
starting two '.minutes late. The last de
parture was 6:4a this morning.
The reporta along the route soon showed
that Louis Renault was making a great
race, and before reaching Chartres he had
overtaken and passed Charles Jarrot, M.
Rena de Knyff and gained a lead which
he never lost afterward. Dispatches from
Vendome, Tours and Polctlors told of his
pssslng through ahead, and Bordeaux, sent
the announcement of his arrival first, at
12:14.' He had beaten Henri Fournler's rec
ord of 8 hours and 44 minutes. Charles
Jarrot finished second at 12:30, having cov
ered the course In t hours and 44 minutes
M. Gabriel arrived third at 1 :30:O8, his time
being 8 hours and 20 minutes.

BALTIMORE, Md.. May 24. Dr. Madson
C. Peters, for thirteen years pastor In New
York, but now preaching In the Baptist
tabernacle, here and well known as the
author of "Justice to the Jew," "The Jew
aa a Patriot," and other volumes, again
lifted his voice against the persecution of
and prejudice against the Jew In his ser
mon today. Dr. Peters not only denounced
the unspeakable atrocities, but vigorously
defended the Russian Jew. He said: "The
4,600,000 Jews In Russia are scattered among
Ignorant, fanatical and demoralised peas
ants, who rob and plunder them at their
will. The schools are closed sgalnst the
Jews, lucrative professions are forbidden
them, they are huddled together In the
least productive provinces of the csar's
realm, and their only means of subsistence
Is trading with Ignorant masses; yet there
Is only one Jewish criminal to every 2,170
Individuals, whereas among non-Jews ths
proportion is one to every 716,
"This massacre will undoubtedly lead to
an Immigration from Russia hitherto un
equalled. We need have less fear from
Russian Jews than many other immi
grants, especially If we scatter them
throughout the country. If you will reud
the names annually of the public school
children who have passed the entrance ex
amination to the sub-freshman classes of
the colleges of the city of New York, Phil
adelphia, Chicago, Boston, Baltimore and
other large centers, you will find the
Costnskys, Besmorskys, Caarcowskis, and
other names of unmistakable Jewish fam
ilies from Russia and Poland. The children
of the Russian Immigrants are crowding
our schools, colleges and universities, they
are busy qualifying themselves for suc
cess and while even many of tho German
Jews are often reviling their -Russian co
religionists, they are broadening . their
minds. The libraries of the great cities
will tell you that their best patrons nrj
the young Rusilan and Polish Jews. They
read and devour American history and
biography, philosophy and science. In the
Spanish-American war the Russian Jews
furnished more than double their share
of volunteers.
Rnssla Hot Alone.
"In a measure at least Americans are
guilty of the same crime we denounce on
Russia and the Russians. In America
the Jew has a double claim to recognition
the claim of the man under the wide tol
erance of the twentieth century, ond the
claim of the American cltlxen under the
broad spirit of the American constitution.

bearing the foot note: "No Jews taken..
The Jew la excluded from society. Hosts
apologise for the stranger by assuring you
that 'he is a good fellow. If he Is a Jew."
"Mass meetings have been held In sev
eral cities for the purpose of protesting
against the continual Ill-treatment and
persecution to which the poor Jews in gen
eral and Jewish peddlers In particular, are
subjected, not only by the hoodlums, but
by the school children. In Detroit, the
mayor had to make a special appeal to the
police to prevent violence and Injustice. In
Chicago, the mayor sent a request to the
president of the Board of Education, the
result of which was that the superin
tendent ot schools Issued Instructions to
the principals of all schools to warn their
puplU against calling offensive names,
throwing stones or otherwise injuring poor
Jews. These instructions were carried out
by means of the principals. The arch
bishop waa also approached on the sub
ject. "I have seen Jewish children go home from
pur public schools In tears because of the
offensive names with which they were
taunted. Outrhges are frequently perpe
trated upon the Jews In our cities under
the very noses of the police outrages
which are a disgrace to our republic.
"Russian and Roumanian Immigrants who
are striving with might and main to earn
a livelihood meet with a reception from

CHICAGO, May 24. Clarence S. Darrow,
who was chief counsel for the minors la
the recent arbitration growing out of the
strike in the anthracite coal fields, deliv
ered an address before the Henry George
association here today on "The Perils ot
Trade Unionism." The general tone of his
talk was that labor unions do not under
stand the principles upon which they are
founded and along which they must work
It they are to continue In existence. Ha
said In part:
Trade unionism la really In Its last anal
ysis the effort to monopolise the labor
market. In the same Hue as the trust la
the effort to monopolise production. Tht
great growth of trade unionism in the last
tew years has taken into Its body large
numbers of men who were not familiar
with Its principles or Its value, whose one
denlre haa been to better thilr. condition,
wno have not the understanding of affalra
to recognize the relation that trade union
nm haa to a general progress and who
therefore have narrow views as to its man
agement and use.
In the great growth of trade unionism
the men seem to have lost sight of the
fundamental principles which In the end
must control. Men catch trade unionism
and speculation as they catch the meusles
or the mumps. Capital has caught the
fever of commerce until it has gone mad
over corporations and trusts. Likewise
labor caught the fever of trade unionism,
and without knowing what It means or
realizing how It may be of real service to
the world has turned Its power and energy
In the direction of building up organisa
tions. Unless this force is turned to polit
ical power or turned to substantial methods
for bettering induatrlal conditions, then
this great movement must be for naught.

that several hundred were homeless.
Many pitiable scenes were witnessed as
the people stood around waiting for the
water to suhslde. Many had lost every
thing they possessed. The cltiaena are
