BONAPARTE TALKS ON ANARCHY
loaie .Ueaaarea Advaaeed for the
Sappreaaloa of the
CUMBERLAND. Md., Aug. 12. Secretary
of the Navy tj'harle J. Hnna parte deliv
ered an address this evening st the Alle
gheny Chautauqua, nedr Cumberland, be
fore a large gathering;, his subject being:
"Anarchism and Its Remedy." He said.
There wa and Is much to bp snfd In favor
of thow; restrictions on Immigration which
are Intended to shut out foreign anarchists
from our shores, and II was undoubtedly
well to arm the federal executive with
wider powers to deport or otherwise rid
the country of disloyal or turbulent aliens,
whether thone call themselves "anarchist"
or not. The fewer of such people we hve
In our midst the better, snd. although I do
not believe it will ever prove practicable
to slam the door In the face of anything
like all of them, all that we can bar out
will be so much gain. But. while we may
thus reduce the number of our anarchists,
it Is sadly certain that we cannot thus get
rid of anarchism. We hsve now a home
made brand of the article, and, although
the original "plnnt" of this "Infant Indus
try" was undoubtedly Imported, the do
mestic product Is large enough to gravely
It Is sometimes ssld that anarchism and
socialism, as systems, sre mutually antip
odal and destructiye. 1 should be very
sorry to diminish whatever hostility the
adherents of either "system" may feel for
i other, for the old adage as to the con
' ences of such strife to honest men
-Mes no small measure of truth: but,
w mind, this view of their relations
fd 'her superficial. They are two dl-
tm growing from the same root,
'i the doctrine that all men of
rig. iff A be, and should therefore be
mad. ept, precisely ennui.
9o K .t or the evil: How can It be
cured? lf we mean cured In a day, a
month, a year, a decade, I answer un
hesitatingly, not at all. Anarchy will not
be removed wl'.hln a given time, or throuah
a special measure or set of measures, per
hxa will not be wholly removed In any
time or by any means.
In the first place, the unlawful acts
prompted by anarchism should be made
crimes. Insofar as they are not, strictly
speaking, crimes already, and, as crimes,
they should be visited wHth such penalties
as sre particularly distasteful to the crim
inals and therefore the most Ineffective
deterrants to crime. In dealing with a
convicted anarchist two facts may well be
remembered, the chances of his resl re
formation are so small that they may be
safely neglected, and we can appeal, for
practical purpoaee, to but one motive on
his part to discourage a repetition of his
offence, namely, the fear of physical pain
On anarchists the death penalty should
be unequivocally Imposed by law and In
flexibly executed whenever the prisoner
has sought directly or indirectly, to take
Ufa; for offences of less gravity, I advise
a comparatively brief, but very rigorous
Imprisonment, characterised by complete
seclusion, deprivation of all comfort and
denial of any form of distraction, and
which could be, to my mind, advantage
ously supplemented by a savere, but not a
public whipping: the lash, of all punish
ments, most clearly shows the culprit that
he Buffers for what his fellow men hold
odious and disgraceful, and not merely for
reasons of public policy.
An abridgment from fear of the anarch
ists of that freedom of speech and of the
rress guaranteed us by our state and
ederal constitutions would be neither a
wise nor a worthy policy; but theee privll
egee in nowise shield councilors of crime
nor instigators of disorder and rebellion.

Nicholas Nlcholalevltch, the Associated

which was tendered to him August 4.
Whether this was decided before or after
the attempt on the life of the grand duke
at Krasnoyae-Selo on August 10 Is not

Grand Duke Nicholas believes such a poet

to a purely military man. He advocates
the appointment of General Linevltch, for
merly commander-in-chief of the Man

finally decided the matter.

HOW "G. M. H." IS FOR BRYAN
Prominent Democrat Reveals Bitch
oock-Tlbbles Alliance to Knock
the Peerless Leader.
MAT GO TO CONGRESS,
Gilbert M. Hltchqock. editor of the
Omaha World Herald and for years an
associate of William Jennings Bryan, has
been elected a member of the committee
In charge of the reception to be tenderd
to Mr. Bryan at the Madison Square Gar
den, New York, on his return from Europe.
Mr. Hitchcock says he cannot attend the
reception, because he desires to be present
at the congressional convention of the
Second Nebraska district August 30. It
is possible that Mr. Hitchcock will be
nominated to Congress.
This dipping is from the Fourth Estate
of New .Tork. It wac shown to a promi
nent democrat of Omaha yesterday and he
smiled and said:
."Tea, b"; those people are fooled if they
think the only thing that keeps HHoboock
from going to New York and aiding in
the reception to Bryan Is his desire to at
tend the (Congressional convention. Ho .Is
anxious enough to attend that convention,
of course, bat Hitchcock Is always looking
out for Hitchcock and nobody . else but
welcoming Bryan Is the last thing In the
world he want to do and this convention
furnishes a fine excuse. They never heard
of that immortal 'Sting of Ingratitude,' I
reckon. They never heard that while pre
tending to support Bryan through the col
umns of his paper, Hitchcock is furnishing
transportation to Tom Tibbies to go down
to Topeka and urge tbe populist convention
in Kansas to stick to th 'middle of the
road and not be led off by Bryan. Tou
see, . those fellows In the east don't- know
so much about these things as we do at
home. We know that Tibbies, who la
railing against Bryan, has his office In the
World-Herald office and has been editing
some sort of pop sheet which Hitchcock
Is back of and we also know that June
23, Tibbies got transportation from a cer
tain road in Omaha on 'account of the
World-Herald and went to St. Louis and
also to Topeka and made speeches against
Bryan. , '
"Oh, yes, we know these things. We
know, you bet, that Hitchcock is lying
awake nights trying to figure out new ways
to boost Mr. Bryan. ' Mr. Bryan knows f."
CHINESE TO BE PROTECTED
Government te Sogervlse the . Con
" tracts Between Agents and
WASHINGTON, D. C, Aug. 12. Care will
be taken by the United States government
to prevent contractors from doing injustice
to the Chinese laborers employed for work
on the Panama canal. The specifications
advertising for proposals to supply 2,900
Chinese to the canal commission will stip
ulate that the secretary of war shall have
the privilege of passing on contracts which
labor f gents make with Chinese who are
to be sent to the Isthmus. . This provision
will meke It possible for Secretary Taft
to prevent discrimination against the
coolies by unscrupulous contractors. Un
der this arrangement the United States will
know exactly what the Chlneee are paid
by the labor agents and the Chinese gov
ernment will be able to afford its subjects
protection on the Isthmus because of tha
ease with which this government will; be
able to regulate the relations between the
Chlneee laborers and the contractors.
Some labor agents believe that with the
many restrictions . the canal commission
purposes placing on contractors. It will not
be able to supply the Chinamen at lesa
than H a day. Other agents are of the
opinion that the eoollee can be supplied for
60 or 00 cents a day with a fair margin
of profit to the contractors.

110 to 213. The Rosewater - column - was
carried up during. the week by .instructions
tn Knox for half the delegation, with the
rest of it to followi and second choice in
structions in Washington county. '..The In
dian land ring In Thurston .county came out
for Millard, while Currle also secured two
votes in one - of - the smaller counties.
D. Crounse was Injected ss a stalking horse
for Millard in Washington county.
'Outside' of the senatorshlp, Sheldon tot
governor nas gone - to 107. - - Weston: made
his debut with the five votes of his home
county.- Frontier county brought out Sen
ator Wllsey for lieutenant governor, and
Clay county 'introduced Representative
Caldwell for railway commissioner.'
Railroads Against Semination.
The maneuvers in a number of the county
conventions showed that the railroad poli
ticians are still clinging to the plan of
preventing Instructions and using the un
lnstructed delegates to vote down the whole
proposition for convention nomination of a
candidate for senator. The railroad co
horts have been playing for unlnstructed
delegations 'wherever possible, and where
unable to avoid Instructions, . they have
been trying to pack the delegations with
men who can be used for other purposes
and voted to down action by the. conven
tion on the senatorshlp altogether. To
combat the railroad program, resolutions
have been adopted in a large number of
counties not Instructing for a preferred
candidate for senator, binding the delegates
not only to vote for the nomination of a
senator In convention, but" also to vote
against any change in the order of nomina
tions as provided for in the call, or any
other slelght-of-hand trick by which the
senatorshlp might be sidetracked. It is
essenttnl to protect the right of the people
to a voice In the selection of their senator
that .resolutions of similar Import be
adopted by all the county conventions yet
to be held, Irrespective of their action in
structing for some ' particular candidate.
The activity of agents of Senator Millard
la connection with the railroad runners In
dicates that concerted work Is being done
to carry out thia part of the corporation
program, and that extra vigilance is nec
essary on the part oft the people to pre
vent its consummation.

a second fare. At one period during the
afternoon the Brooklyn Rapid Transit
company refused to convey its passengers
beyond Neck road, the second fare bound
ary, so long as any of the passengers re
fused to pay the additional t cents. The
result was a blockade of cars and trains
a mile long. Great crowds of ejected pas
sengers gathered at these condensed

disputes' between passengers and employes
on the second fare question. Several pas
sengers were injured today In being thrown
