HAVANA, Oct. 1-—Secretary Taft’s speech to-day at the exercises at the Havana University, founded by the Dominicans two centuries,' ago, is the dominant note here. His declaration that Cuba was to remain a republic was received with unbounded enthusiasm. The audience was composed of the flower of the social and professional life and intelligence of the country, Whose cordial reception pleased Secretary Taft. It has been the custom of the university authorities to have the President of the republic address the Students and visitors each year. Secretary Taft appeared in lieu of former President Palma.  The country is quiet, in general though unimportant trouble is report-§d from Isolated communities where the Moderates are in control. These Small disturbances are due largely to the overbearing actions of the local officials, and the liberal newspapers here lay there is need for a larger force than Secretary Taft originally expected SVould be necessary to police the island, tn this connection considerable com-toent has been caused by the number of Ihlps and marines now in the vicinity if Cienfuegos.  Merchants report a general revival of business activities from the day Secretary Taft’s proclamation was issued, Lnd a normal condition is expected fcrhen the rebels disband. This, apparently, will take place within a few lays.  MRS. ELISHA DYER HURT.  Thrown from Her Carriage in Newport—Unconscious for a Time.  Special to The Nctv York Times.  NEWPORT, Oct. 1 —Mrs. Dyer, wife of Elisha Dyer, was seriously injured in» a runaway accident late this afternoon. She was in a two-seated carriage with Mrs. Bullock of Baltimore, her guest, when the horses became entangled in the harness. As the coachman attempted to turn them into Kay Street from one of the streets leading from Eroadway the horses became unmanageable. Turning too sharply, they overturned the vehicle.  Mrs. Dyer, her companion, and the coachman were thrown o.ut. The two latter escaped from the carriage, but Mrs. Dyer was caught beneath the vehicle and dragged a short distance before the horses cleared themselves from the harness and left the carriage.  When those who saw 7  the accident reached the scene Mrs. Dyor was unconscious and blood was flowing from her face and head. She sooh recovered consciousness, how 7 ever, and started to walk home.  Mr. and Mrs T. Shaw Safe took Mrs. Dyer In their automobile to Wayside, Mrs. Dyer’s residence, in Bellevue Avenue, where physicians were summoned. The cuts about the face' w 7 ere not. of a very serious nature, but the shock was severe, and Mrs. Dyer is to-night in a serious condition. However, her physi-ciars feel confident that she will recover, though she will be confined to the house several days.  The horses, after breaking from the carriage, ran along Kay Street and Bellevue Avenue, stopping, exhausted, a short distance south of the Casino.  ONE KILLED, 60 INJURED IN TROLLEY CAR’S DASH  Runs Down Yonkers Hill, Turning Turtle at the Bottom.  CHILD CRUSHED TO DEATH  Half a Dozen Others May Die of Injuries— Brake Rod Broke, and Motorman Was Helpless.  HAVANA, Oct. 1.—Gov. Taft's actions ' place in the hearts of the people whose lo-day have gone far to win him a warm lesttnies have been placed in his hands.  Presiding this morning at the opening aatercises of the University of Havana, he declared his mission here was solely for the purpose of uplifting the fallen republic and restoring it to the path of prosperity, an announcement which was received w 7 ith demonstrations of delight by audience representative of the highest society in Havana. Following this it became known that Gov. Taft and Assistant Secretary of State Bacon had cabled for their wives to join them here, a step , tPhich cannot but be most agreeable to the Cuban people, and w r hlch will strongly cement the bonds of affection between them and the American provisional administration.  Still another act of Gov. Taft’s is warmly commended as illustrative of his thoughtful consideration of the humbler ¿lasses. Learnihg that many poor famines occupying the temporarily disused barracks at Camp Columbia, 1  were about to be summarily evicted by order of the Cuban authorities, in preparation for the tccupatlon of the quarters by the brigade bf marines, Gov? Taft directed that these people remain undisturbed in their homes for a period ot fifteen days. In the meanwhile a portion of the marines will remain inder canvas.    »  Went to Camp in His Auto.  The order of eviction had been issued in (he name of the Provisional Governor, tjpon hearing of the plight of the present tenants of the barracks Gov. Taft went to vamp Columbia in an automobile, explained that he had not been aware of the jonditions, and rescinded the order. He feft the camp amid cheers and warm ex-iressions of gratitude from the people. The news of this act of humanity spread lapidly and received the highest praise, these evidences of American good-will iave earned such general favorable corn-pent that the landing of the brigade of' harines which will constitute the garrison here caused hardly a ripple of excitement.  Much of the Governor’s time to-day was ♦coupled In receiving officials of the va-fious departments and Judges of the Jourts. With the members of the Supreme Court Gov. Taft held a prolonged lonfe^ence concerning the drafting of a proclamation of general amnesty. This leeree is of the most importance, i i view if the fact that at many points on the eland, notably Cienfuegos, many persons ire in jail awaiting the disposition of political charges.

STEAMBOAT OFFICERS STRIKE,    - 1     ,    '    4  Higher Pay Demanded—Four Vessels Tied Up at Baltmore.  Special to The New York Times. BALTIMORE, Oct. 1.—The fight of the licensed officers of the steamboats of the Baltimore, Chesapeake & Atlantic and the Maryland, Delaware & Virginia Railway Companies for higher pay is fairly on, and the men express themselves as satisfied with the result of the first day’s fight, u r hich would seem to be in the nature of a stand-off.    •    ~  Four boats scheduled to sail did so, while four others that were to have sailed remained tied to their wharves. The officials of the companies express themselves as confident that they will be able to cope successfully with the situation by putting the Winter schedules ihto effect somewhat earlier than usual.  Many of the boats expected to be in-voolved in the difficulty are now on their routes and the action to be taken by their officers cannot be known until the time for their next sailings from this city.  The vessels of the New York and Baltimore Transportation Company and of the Ericsson Line, the latter running between this city and Philadelphia, are not affected. The other two companies named above are controlled by the Pennsylvania Railroad.    ____  PREACHER'S LETTER A~CLOAK.  Thief Admits Using hîis Recommendation,., to Deceive Victim.  Joseph Bailey, alias “ George Wheaton,” of 13 Bowery, admitted to Magistrate Walsh in the Harlem Court yesterday afternoon that he had robbed Mrs. Anna Wallace of 612 West 147th Street of $300 in jewelry. Bailey was held in $2,500 bail for trial, and Harry Sikowsky, to whom he is alleged to have sold the goods, was h€ld in the same bail for further examination. Sikowsky has a jewelry store at 34 Second Avenue. Bailey had in his possession a letter of recommendation from a clergyman.  According to Bailey's confession in the police court, he went to see the Rev. Mr. Smith, pastor of St. Paul’s Church, 141st Street and Convent Avenue. He attended the minister’s church and got into his good graces. Later he went to see the minister at his home, at 36 Hamilton Place, and told him that he could not get work. The minister gave him a recommendation, believing that he was worthy. Bailey, according to his confession, went to see Mrs. Anna Wallace armed with the recommendation from the clergyman. She employed him to clean carpets. He admits, according to the police, that he stole a gold watch, three rings, and several stickpins from Mrs. Wallace and then left the house. Mrs. Wallace notified the police of her loss, and Bailey was arrested.  does~nt’l!kI ELIGIBLES.  Binghafn Says Captains Listed Aren’t Fit for Inspectorship^.  Police Commissioner BinghanK is thoroughly dissatisfied with the list of Captains eligible for promotion to Inspectorships. He told Mayor McClellan yesterday that there wasn’t a man on the list that he would willingly make an Inspector. Allegations relative to every one on the list had come to him, he said, which made him believe that none of these Captains was qualified for promotion.  Mayor McClellan made no reply to the Commissioner’s statement, Col. Bingham said later at Police Headquarters, but he smiled a smile, the Commissioner said, that ledf* him to believe the Executive w r as in accord with his view r s.  When the Commissioner returned from  his vacation he asked for.a list of eligi-bles for promotion to inspectorships. The old list from which the last batch of Inspectors was appointed was turned over to him. This is the list to which he ob-iects.  ” Capt. William Hndgins’s name heads the list Capts. Formosa,* John O’Connor, and Edward Gallagher are also-in line for advancement. Formosa and Hogan are Acting Inspectors. Hodgins was formerly in command of the Tenderloin station. While there several raids were made over his head. He was sent to Cit v  Island. Recently he was brought back to the city._  After all, tr»ber* tbe fNwteft  that mads Dm highball iamous.—A4*  Packed with a rush-hour crowd, a car on the Fordham line of the Yonkers Railroad ran away at top speed down the steep Horseshoe Hill at Lincoln Park, near Yonkers, shortly after 5 o’clock last night, and, jumping the tracks at the foot of the hill, turned turtle, burying the sixty or more passengers in the débris.  Every one of the passengers was more or less injured, some of whom will die, and a seeen months’ old baby was so badly kicked in the head in the panic rush of the passengers that it died In the hospital.  The car was a closed one, and left Bedford Park at 5:00 P. M. in charge of Motorman Andrew' Ulichery. It was packed. After crossing Jerome Avenue there is a long, steep hill shaped like a horseshoe. When at the apex of the horseshoe the brakerod of the car snapped, and the car shot forward. The motorman realized that something was wrong, and attempt to put on the reverse current, but before he could do bo the car struck the curve at the fooc of the hill, jumped the track, and shot across the street. There it struck a big boulder and turned over, burying the passengers in a pile of -broken glass and wreckage.  The motorman and conductor both stuck to their posts, but were uninjured. Immediately the car struck the curve there was a wild fight on the part of those who could do so to get out of the car. Only those on the rear platform were able to jump when the car left the rails, but the accident came so quickly that, fighting and screaming to get out, no progress by the passengers in escaping w'as made until just before the car turned over. Many of those hurt were injured In the fight to escape. Broken glass and splintered wood also injured many.  Persons living 4n the neighborhood, hearing the crash, telephoned SL Joseph’s Hospital, and the work of caring for the injured began. Three men in automobiles who refused to give their names lent valuable assistance and carried many of the injured to the hospital. Edward Perot of this city also took some of the injured to the hospital in his auto. Many refused to go, but went to their hemes after having their hurts dressed. St. Joseph’s Hospital had forty-two patients, most of them, however, only suffering from contusions or cuts.  The seveu-month’s-old baby of Mrs. Baxlick. at 131 Nepperhan Avenue was  stepped on and kicked so in the rush that she died later at the hospital. Her head was terribly crushed. Mrs. Barlick and a daughter, Veta, also suffered from internal injuries and cuts and contusions on the head and body. Mrs. List of 1 Jefferson Street had her skull fractured. She wi4 die, it was said at the hospital.  Others seriously injured were:  FLANNERY, Mrs. MARY, South Broadway, Yonkers; contusions of chest; serious; at St. Joseph’s Hospital.

A car bound from Yonkers to New York had just passed the scene of the accident and the plight of the car was seen. The motorman had stopped a little beyond when he saw an accident was sure. The passengers ran back and began to drag out those inside the car through the broken windows. Others were hauled out by way of the doors. All were laid on the grass in a meadow alongside the road.  Word was telephoned to this city, and Superintendent Frank Burton jumped on a car at the terminal and went to the scene at once. To reach it he had to send two cars on the line ahead of him along without stopping. He was on the scene before all the injured were out of the car. Two cars from New York had meanwhile reached the scene.  One of those who went to the scene of the accident was a Mrs. Toy, who lives not far away. She saw what had taken , place and ran with an armfull of sheets and other linen to the scene to provide plenty of bandages being on hand. Her quick action served to allay much pain and suffering. On the scene she worked over the injured.  She w 7 as kneeling over one injured wo-man bandaging a tear in the flesh when some one deliberately reached down and tore a gold watch and its pin from her ’ shirtwaist. Before Mrs. Toy could reach her feet the person was lost in the crowd.  The police station contains a heap of articles recovered by the police from the . W'reck of the car. There are broken and } blood-stained hats and-coats of both men | and women, boxes of candy, a bottle of i hair restorer, pocketbooks, umbrellas, and  1  a Christian Science book. The motorman i and the conductor were detained by the police to assure their being on hand to be questioned by Coroner Weisendanger. The motorman gave his name and ad-i dress, but before the police had a talk with them a representative of the com-' pany had a chance to see them. After he went away the. conductor even refused to say who he is.  The Yonkers Common Council held a meeting last night to consider application for extensions of the Union Railway Com-  8any's franchises in Yonkers. Mayor ovne called attention to the seriousness of‘the accident, and said the Aldermen should demand that air brakes be substituted for the antiquated hand brakes on the trolley cars. The Aldermen adjourned without giving the company the desired grants.    .    .  Threw His Son from a Bridge.  PITTSBURG, Oct. 1.—Patrick Coyne j threw his three-year-old son over the Twenty-second Street bridge into the Mo-nongahela River this evening, and followed after him in an evident attempt at suicide. The boy was drowned, but the father was rescued.  Hotel Martinique Dining Rooms, B’way and 3Sd St. вата management as St. Denis Hotel, —Adr,  23 PUT TO DEATH BY KNOUT.  Cossacks Then Tired and Forced Peasants to Beat One Another.  KHERSON, Oct 1.—Ninety-seven peasants were tried here to-day on the charge of having devastated the estate of M. Krivoshein, ex-Mlnister of Railroads. Sixty-three were sentenced to jimprison-ment, while thirty-four were acquitted.  The trial brought out a recital of the horrible atrocities committed by the authorities upon the accused. The chief of the district, accompanied by a detachment of Cossacks, reached the estate soon after the devastation. All the peasants on the ground were at once gathered in. No investigation was made. The chief invited priests to administer the last sacrament to the prisoners, and then ordered the Cossacks to beat them all to death. The butchery lasted for four hours. Twenty-three peasants were killed and one hundred and thirty were mutilated.  The Cossacks, then thoroughly tired out, compelled the peasants to continue flogging each other, and men had to beat their own brothers, sons, and fathers.  The victims of this slaughter were innocent, those really guilty having escaped by flight. In spite of these revelations the court found sentences as related above.  THE SHERIDAN ASHORE AGAIN.  Transport, Refloated, Had to be Beached to Save Her from Sinking.  HONOLULU, Oct. 1.—The United States Army transport Sheridan, which ran aground on Barber’s Point, at the southwest extremity of the Island of Oahu, was floated to-day with the assistance of the. transport Buford, but had to be beached again to prevent her from sinking, and now lies close to the western entrance of Pearl Harbor. It is believed that a big hole Was torn in the hull of the Sheridan when she was coming off the reef, and that she will be a total loss.  The Sheridan was being towed to Honolulu, but after floating took a heavy list. When she had proceeded about ten miles from Barber’s Point, half the distance to this port, her lines attached to the Buford and the tug Manning were suddenly cast off. Her bow was pointed toward the shore, and she was beached in a position which is difficult to reach. The Buford, Manning, and other tugs are stands ing by to lend her all asistance possible.  ENGINEEfTBROKE SPEED LAW.  The Pennsylvania Limited’s Driver is Fined a Third Time.  Special to The New York Times.  PITTSBURG, Penn., Oct. 1.—W. R. Jones, engineer of the Pennsylvania Limited on the Pennsylvania Railroad, was before Burgess Arthur Stuart of Wilkins-burg again this morning, charged with violating an ordinance by running his train through the borough at a speed which Chief of Police Doran declares was a mile in 55 seconds. In spite of his plea of not guilty he was fined $25 and costs. This was paid, but Jones’s attorney took a transcript of the case.  This is the-third time-J«»es has been arrested and fined, but the speed of the limited through the borough is undi-roinished. Each day a policeman with a stop vatch takes the time of the limited as it goes through town. The matter probably will be fought opt in the courts.  It is understood that just before reaching Wilkinsburg the fireman and the engineer exchange places in the cab, and the charge will be made that the wrong man has been fined.  HUGHES AND ROOSEVELT CHAT ON IHE TRAIN  Indorsement of Judiciary Ticket May Be the Result.  CANDIDaYe SEES LEADERS  They Are Said to Have Agreed That the Nominators’ Ticket Must Be Accepted.  CRUISER SAVED SANTIAGO. |  Hungry Cuban Revolutionists Had the City Almost at Their Mercy.  SANTIAGO, Cuba, Oct. 1.—The arirval here this afternoon of the American cruiser Des Moines relieved a serious situation. Fully 4,000 armed revolutionists were encircling the city within three miles. They were undisciplined, badly organized, without shelter, and hungry. There had been constant rains, discontent was rife, and the insurgents were threatening to raid the city. The Government forces concentrated inside Santiago were not sufficient to drive the besiegers away.  All the official Cuban flags had been lowered when the Des .Moines entered the harbor. Commander Culver says he has no instructions to change the present government, and that his mission here is solely for the preservation of order. De-metrio Castillo is expected here to-night. He will proceed at once with the work of disarming the revolutionists.,  VERACITY OF ROOSEVELT, JR.  Erroneous Report Makes It a Subject of Comment in London.  Special Cable to The New York Times.  Copyright. ■ 1900.  LONDON, Oct. 1,—“ Thus does history repeat itself,” remarks The London Globe, referring to the reported dictum of the American magistrate that Theodore Roosevelt’s son could not tell a lie. The globe’s meaning Is that we have another George Washington in America. after waiting for him many days.  The Globe’s reference to Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., doubtless grows ou^ of the judicial inquiry into the attacks by Harvard students on Boston policemen on Friday. Young Roosevelt was supposed to have some knowledge of the affair, but declined to impart it to the authorities. ‘A dispatch from. Boston last night said that the magistrate had made no comment on the veracity of the President’s eon.  NEW RATE  LAW RULING.  Commission Construing the Law in Advance of Complaints.  WASHINGTON, Oct. 1.—The Inter-State Commerce Commission has reached a most important conclusion with respect to the railway rate law, which it has embodied in a general order made public to-day. It holds that where a State rate forms a part of an inter-State rate the State, rate should be filed with the commission. This is an entirely new feature in connection with the operation of the Inter-State Commerce Commission.  The further announcement was made that the commission intends wherever possible to construe the law in advance without waiting for any particular complaint to be made upon which to base .ts decision. In this way it is expected that a large number of complaints will be anticipated and the work of the commission correspondingly lessened.  $50.00 TO $53.00 TO PACIFIC COAST.  via Missouri Pacific and Denver & Rio Grande I Rys “The Scenic Line” through Rocky Mountains.

Charles E. Hughes, the Republican candidate for Governor, had a talk lasting more than an hour on a train with President Roosevelt yesterday morning. Returning to town, Mr. Hughes had a conference lasting several hours with County Chairman Parsons and Timothy L. Woodruff at~State headquarters.  For more than an hour after his return from his talk with the President, Mr. Hughes discussed the judiciary situation with the leaders. Chairman Woodruff said that in spite of the protests of some Republican district leaders in Brooklyn, he had urged that the Republicans of Kings County should indorse the ticket offered by the Committee of One Hundred.  Mr. Woodruff said that the nominees of the Committee of One Hundred represents the best judgment of the best lawyers of Kings County and formes a judiciary ticket which deserves, and probably will, get the approval of the majority of citizens of Kings County.  Chairman Woodruff took the same ground with reference to the situation in this county and it was practically determined at the conference to urge the Republican Judiciary Convention to indorse the action of the Judiciary Nominators^ In this view Mr. Woodruff had the hearty assent of Mr, Hughes, who is himself one  of the Judiciary Nominators  Congressman Parsons was disposed also to accord with their views, although he expressed the opinion that in some respects the Independent ticket was open to criticism and did not entirely meet the wishes of the Republicans of New York County. It is expected, therefore, that the action of the Judhcary Nominators will be indorsed by the Republicans. It Is known tha’ta President Roosevelt strongly urges this action.    ,    .  At the conference St was determined that the Republican campaign will, so far as possible, proceed along lines free ^jom personal abuse of Mr. Hearst. It _ls known that Mr. Hughes will not refer to his opponent in his speech of acceptance to-morrow night. He will refer to the convention of Buffalo, however, and he will describe it as having been riotous and full of disorderly elements. He will, however, make some reference to the Hearst propaganda. Mr. Hughes is determined to conduct his campaign on a dignified plane.    .  Arrangements have been made by the Republican State Committee for the circulation of the speeches of ^-S^pator George Raines of Rochester and John B. Stanehfield of Elmira, which were dc-livered thfc Buffalo Convention, &nu which strongly attacked Hearst and Mur-   P  llr. Woodruff has also made arrangements for conferences this week.with independent Democrats looking to some action to solidify and organize the independent Democratic sentiment which is favorable to Mr. Hughes. As each member of the Republican Club is entitled to bring a guest to the meeting to-morrow 7  night, Mr. Woodruff is very anxious tnat the shall select Democrats rather than Republicans.    _  Mr. Hughes got to see the President as Mr. Roosevelt w r as on the way to Washington with his family from Oyster Bay. As the President was waiting in Jersey Citv for his private car, the Mayflower, to be attached to the Washington train Mr. Hughes arrived. It was evident that the meeting had been carefully planned. Mr Hughes had only expected to talk with the President up to the time for the departure of his train at 11:to o clock in the morning. The conversation was so interesting? however, that Mr Hughes accepted the President’s invitation to ac-comDanv him rs far rs Trenton.  A ^arge crowd gathered in the City station to greet the I resident, and he w 7 as heartily cheered, as he    *9  his car Mr. Hughes joined him, and the cheers of the crowd Tf  re  t     }*£  when they saw the President and the candidate "for the Governorship walking arm in arm President. Roosevelt came out on the platform of .his car with Mrs. Roosevelt several times and bowed. He greeted persons whom he  reco ^ n L ze( ? P the crowd, and he said thad he had thoroughly enjoyed his vacation, and ready" for hard w 7 6rk.    .  Mr. Hughes took the next tram back from Trenton after leaving the    :  and at 4 o’clock in the afternoon he went to the new Republican headquarters at 12 East Thirtieth Street, where be had a conference w 7 ith Mr. W ooaruff. A mo. sage was sent to County Chairman Parsons asking him to join the conference. Mr. Parsons had returned to the Count} Committee headquarters from Lenox  b ut a short time before, and he hurried up to Thirtieth Street. Secretary p lea ?he joined them there. In an interval of the conference Mr. Hughes said:  “The President and I had a \erj m teresting talk. It is quite natural that he should be much interested in the Stat campaign, ami In    hour s talk we went  over mftny things It would be obviousy imnrooer for me to reveal what was saia, buf I can sair tlmt wc talked politic?. Yes we cert#nly talked polities. We couldn’t very »Well get aw 7 a.y from that   a *“ We w'ili start the ball rolling here on Wednesday night W'hen the notification ceremonies wifi be held There will no be much let-up from that time on  unTli  eiection day. So far it has been arranged that I shall speka on Friday night in Carnegie Hall with Mr. Bruce and Attorney General Ma.yer. On Saturday I have two engagements in Brooklyn, and I shall probably start on up the State on Monday. The details hovp vet to be arranged.  At this point Mr. Woodruff h^oke ln with a statement in regard to the way contributions w-ere commg in in response to the appeal he had sent out, and Mr. Hughes took up the cue.  “ We need the sinews of war, he said, “ and we need a lot of them for the legitimate expenses of the campaign. I would like to make it as clear as possible that no one need be ashawed to send what he can. We have cut out any contributions from corporations, and so we shall have to relv on the support of the citizens. We want to popularize the subscription, and we bope that any one. who has  the  r y ei : fare of the party at heart and can afford to contribute to Its campaign expenses will do so. Every one can be assured that the money will go for proper purposes. I am told that the responses so far have been very satisfactory.”  “ Yes,” said Mr. Woodruff, “ we have every reason to be satisfied with the ttfay the funds are coming in. The amounts have been small for the most part, but they have b^en many, and this shows the wide interest that is being taken in the campaign. The first check I got was from a Democrat, who said he had always voted the other ticket, but that in a crisis like this - he thought that he should not only vote for Mr. Hughes, but help to defray the expenses of his campaign.’  ' Mr, Hughes said that he would like to .express through the newspapers his appreciation of the many letters and telegrams of congratulation he has received, both from Democrats and Republicans.  “ I have been swamped with them,” he said, “ and while tinder ordinary circumstances I would make it a point to acknowledge these communications personally the press of business has been so great and the time to do things in is so short that I must make a general, acknowledgment through the prese.”  Mr. Parsons said:  “ The first thing to look out for is the registration. The Times pointed that out | very clearly this morning, and it will not do to go on the supposition that we have \ a walkover. Next Monday and Tuesday are the first two registration days, and I am very anxious to have a large number of Republican and anti-Hoarst voters register^    }    .  NO £5,500,000 FROM SKIBO.  Baseless Report That Carnegie Was to Make a Gigantic Gift.  Special Cable to The New York Times. Copyright, 1906.  LONDON, Oct. 1.—The very pretty  story that £5,500,000 was soon to be  distributed by Andrew Carnegie for  the benefit of humanity proves to be a  canard.  According to The Yorkshire Herald, which put the story in circulation, Mr. Carnegie had called upon the School Boards and other public bodies of Scotland to advise him as to his dispensations, and it was gravely stated that Mr. Carnegie did not care much where the money might go so long as he should get rid of It, and that he made only one stipulation, namely, that no preacher should get a penny of the £5,500,000. He was willing to buy any number of church organs, but preachers must look elsewhere than to him for their support.  Now the whole story has been denied from Sklbo Castle, and the preacher Is no worse off than anybody else.  GEORGE E. TURNUREThURT.  Thrown from His Horse, Which Was Frightened by an Auto.

Leaves New Yorkf 3:30 P. M., arrives Chicago 8:30 next mornine^-a night’s ride by the NEW YORK CENTRAL LINE3, " America’* Greatest Railroad.” A dozen other fast trains to Chicago, St. Louis, and the West.-—Adv.  William Randolph Hearst repudiated Charles F. Murphy of Tammany Hail again last night. He came out unexpectedly and unequivioally wiCb the statement that no matter whether Murphy was for him or not, he was not for Murphy,  The statement was due to an interjection offered by some one in the gallery C*i one of the five places in Brooklyn in which Mr. Hearst spoke, and his departure from his written speech and his repudiation of the man said to be responsible for his nomination at Buffalo caused somewhat of a stir among the audience.  Mr. Hearst’s campaign managers earlier in the day had given it out that he now demanded the privilege of naming six eao* didates for Supreme Court on the New York County judicial ticket» In his first deal ~ with Leader Murphy Mr. HeaAit had asked for only four of these places.  All of the five Hea.’st meetings wer#^ well attended, and hia reception in every case was enthusiastic. His speech was A domparatlvely short one, and, with only minor exceptions, he spoke “ by the card ** in every instance. The Interruption 00-curred at the Brooklyn Casino, 17 SelgOl Street, the second meeting visited by the candidate.  Mr. Hearst was speaking of the-men he had to thank for their opposition. He had mentioned the agents of the corporations. Then some one up In the gallery, said to be an adherent of Pat McCarrente, whose district Hearst was invadlngV**Ung out In a loud, clear tone:  ” How about Charlie Murphy* *•  There were cries of ” Put him out.”**   M  No. don’t put him out,” said M*.. Hearst after a moment’s pause. " X don^t pay any more attention to him than X pay to Murphy.”  Chairman Frederick Adams, who had introduced Mr. Hearst interrupted the applause.  Wb will let that young man speak, at some other time,'* he said.  ** No,” said Mr. Hearnt ^*Let him speak this time. It does not matter whether Murphy is for me or not, I am not for Murphy. It does not matter how much Murphy is for me, h am not for Murphy.” Long and vooifelrous applause greetfed this statement, and the young man infthe gallery subsided. Mr. B l  arst paused a moment, and then picked up tbe L. his speech, going on to say that the rept diation of the corporation corruptionists at Bufalo was the only thing that made it possible for him to run on the Democratic ticket.  Later in the evening at the last meeting, when Mr. Hearst was addressing a large gathering at Prospect Hall, he had passed down the line of those Whom he had to thank for the opposition to him, when some one shouted out:  ” And how about Pat McCarren, Willie? ” , !   “ Yes, he’s another one,” retorted Mr. Hearst, Immediately.  Mr. Hearst started from his home at the corner of Twenty-seventh Street and Ij6X-ingtop Avenue at a quarter past 8 o’clock to speak at five different places in Brooklyn Borough. He traveled in a big Pope-Toledo car, and there were two automobiles for the newspaper men, who had a hard time keeping up with the candidate. It is a safe assertion that the speed limit was broken fully a dozen times during the evening by every automobile in the lot.  The party traveled down Second Avenue, through hordes of children who had to jump to get clear of the fast-traveling cars. The run across the bridge was made at a speed of seventy-five miles an hour. At the further end there was a blaze of red fire in honor of the candidate, and at the Palace Rink, 91 Grand Street, Mr. Hearst’s agents had also been at work.  The crowd in the rink numbered not less than 1,500 people, and there was not a woman to be seen. In the smoky, low-ceilinged hall, Mr. Hearst looked very big indeed In his long frock coat. His voice was excellent. There were cheers when he came in, and prolonged cheers whenever he made a point in his speech.  Once the crowd gave three vociferous cheers for “ Buster Hearst,” at the instigation of some one in the audience. At mention of Mr. Jerome Mr. Hearst was called upon to “Give it to him, Bill; he a dreamin . ’ The Chairman at this meeting was Register Bolton.  The speech delivered by Mr. Hearst here and at the other meetings was as follows:    :'-N  “ My friends, I think the lines in this popular rights, between those who are in favor of government by corporations for campaign should be clearly drawn be-tw'een those who are in favor of special privilege and those who are in favor or their private profit and those.who are m favor of government by the people for the public benefit. 4    . ,  ” The Independence League was created fo- the purpose of freeing the Government from the corrupt and contaminating control of corporations and liberating the people from such unequal apd un-American conditions.    -c.,##-  “ The Democratic Convention at Buffalo openly and scornfully repudiated the corporation agents who were there to invest their masters’ money in the    ®  of delegates, and that repudiation was the one thing that made it possible for the nominees of. the Independence Lague to accept the Democratic indorsement.  “ The corporation forces are now united  behind the corporation attorney of tbe  corporation party, and the line I,  long labored to have clearly drawn is  clearly drawn at last.    .  “ In all my speeches and In all the acts of mv life I have endeavored to maks my position celar on this importantmat-ter, but I wish to politely acknowledge the assistance I bave*eceivedYrom otlwarfc “ I wisn to thank Alton B. Parker, Will lam F. Sheehan, Edward M. Shepard, Paul D. Cravath, District Attorney Jerome, and other corporation attorneys and paid political agents of corrupt interests.  “ Alton B. Parker is a typical corporation lawyer. He can be feed to hold any opinion on anv subject, and argue any Side of a case! He is the attorney who appeared in the election case on the aid» Of th* election criminals in the \ery court :ie had formerly graced, and ther® argued against th® very opinion he himself had formerly rendered, and there succeeded in securing a reversal of his own   V “ r it Ct is possible that the arguments of Judge Parker were not as •effective as the'arguments of the employers of Judge Parker, but nevertheless it cannot be denied that Parker argued to secure the reversal of Parker, and to deny the peo-nle their political rights.  “And he did this because the corporations who employ him as their tion attorney wanted him to do It, an4   P “*i wish publioiy to thank Judge Parker for his opposition to me.
