J. fiurnham, husband and father of three of the six persons found murdered here yesterday, to- day strenuously deMied he had a the crime. The police are holding Bumham "although they have no evidence against him. They be- lieve some maniac or enemy of Mrs Burnham committted the crime, murders have proven a -eom- mystery te the police since the_ bodies of- victims were found with the heads hacked to pieces in their homes It was ap- parent that the persons might have bsen killed last Sunday. An axe, which had _been-, loaned to 'Mrs. Henry one- of the victims, by J.. _R, a .neighbor; found, bloodstained, by Mrs Evans on Monday near the back door of the Wayne home No attention paid to this fact however, as it was thought that the axe had been need in killing.yjebickens. The Burnha.m'house is 'situated at} Dale street and Harrison place and the two houses next to it on Dale Etreet are vacant. Directly in the rear is the Wayne -home and close to it is that of Evans. 3Jhe crime by Burnham's Mrs. June Ruth, 6nd a neighbor, called at the Burnham' home Not getting any response, fprped an entrance The bodies of Mrs Burnham and ofher two children found la their beds, which were covered blood, and the and ceiling also spattered. The woman rushed to the street and gave the alarm Instinctively a dozen persons went to the Wayne house, where there had been no signs of life since Sunday, and the same terrible scene was presented. In bed were the bodies of Mr and Mrs. Wayne and their baby, all nor ribly mangled as m the case of the bodies in the Burnham house. One of the mjsteiious features of the crime is that there is no con- nection between the two families murdered and they were not even intimately acquainted as neighbors.

Gould and other notables among the rich in society was condemned in the supreme court by Justice Goff as con- trary to the best interests of the public. Judge Goff said, speaking of a di- vorce case. "The report of the referee should be confirmed and the decree allowed. No further action would have been taken had it not been that the at- torneys asked that the papers be sealed. That means the testimony must be suppressed This is the only reason that can be rationally ad- vanced to justify the exception and it is both fallacious and mis- chievous. "It is common knowledge that in this state a divorce can be decreed on only one of one of the parties. Were it the general rule to suppress testimony in all divorce cases, its propriety and usefulness might be defended, but it is a gross de- lusion to attempt to conserve public morals by the suppression of the testi- mony in one case while in hundreds of other cases the meretricious details are publicly narrated. "This suggests the idea of privilege and favoritism Of all evils that may assail the administration of justice this is the most insidious. The re- quest to seal is denied.'

PARIS, Sept. riot- ing broke out in Valencia today according to advices from Madrid. The cavalry fired and many were wounded. v HENDAYE, Fran.e, Sept. 21 Though there seems to be a tempor- ary minimization today of the seri- ousness of the Spanish strike situation, unofficial advices on the frontier do not bear out the opti- mistic statement Troops are still on guard and by arresting union leaders the government has compelled many strikers to return to work. Thirty thousand are still out, however. Thou- sands are now held as political pris- oners. Many will be executed or ex- iled. In spite of the desperate efforts of the authorities to check wide upusing, 30.000 men in the build- ing trades in Madrid received a -gener- al order to strike and a walk-out which practically will paialyze many leading business enterprises of the city seems ineutable As a countei to this move the government arrest- ed Senor Largo Caballero, general counsel for and vice president of the general union of labor and his offices heie were closed. .While the government is combat- ing this strike, which threatens to cause Spain's industrial wheels to stop, Premier Canalejas received re- ports that revolutionists, well armed and led by a former army of- ficer, were marching upon Valencia, new the center of the political up- rising'. The revolutionists hope to capture the city and use it as a base for their attempt to overthrow the government. Premier Canalejas has dispatched a laige force of troops to check the revolutionists' army and a pitehed battle is expected either in or near Valencia. All telegraph and tele- phone lines leading into Valencia have been cut by the advancing army and the nearest point of communica- tion is seventy-five miles from that city. The police and military in Madrid are taking extreme precautions to guard against a general uprising in event the building trades strike order is obeyed. All arms and ammunition on sale in the shops of the city have been seized and the garrison is sleep- ing on its arms. The general strike oider is being obeyed in many of the larger cities In Gijon the working men's commit- tee outwitted the militarj, and meet- ing secretly, planned a general strike They sent agents into all and factories early and the strike be- ASTOR PEEVED AT PAPA'S MARRIAGE Vincent Astor, son of John Jacob Tepurled to be disgruntled .over his father's marriage to twenty- year-old Madeline Force.

OTTAWA, Ont, Sept. bat- tle of ballots for reciprocity is on in Canada today. The polls opened at 9 o'clock and advices from every point indicate heavy voting. Friends of Sir Wilfred Laurier declared be- fore noon that the reports received indicate the liberal candidates are running well and that the liberal ma- jority may exceed the earlj hopes. Party lines have been broken onj the reciprocitj issue and it is also expected the election will prove ven corrupt. The conservatives thev will do better in the maritime provinces and the west but the liberals make similar claims. Probably theie will be little j change unless it be in Manitoba where the liberals should gam three seats. The real fighting ground is in Quebec) and Ontario and in both the admin-; istration would likelj lose ground.

Getting Out Vote. MONTREAL, Sept. In the history of Canada has there been such an effort on the part of poli- tical leaders to get out the vote aa was evidenced today. Before the polls opened long lines of electors waited to cast their ballots. Pre mier Laurier voted about 10 o'clock j at Quebec. There has been no dis- orders of consequence. More than half of the house- wives of the city are unable to find time to read a paper at all until evening. And when a worn- w an sits down for her evening of restful reading, she reads an ev- ening newspaper. Therefore the average woman's is confined tothe ads that appear m an evening EXCLUSIVELY.

Since then nothing has been seen of her. Of- fice! s found footprints near the Valley bridge and are led to the belief that the woman ended her life. Says He Called Extra Session of Congress Only for Pass- age of Reciprocity Bill. WANTED REPORT FROM TARIFF COMMISSION President Says Farmers' Free List Bill Was Entirely Un- necessary and impossible, GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Sept. A drilling rain greeted President Taft here today but he was humed to the country club for a breakfast Senator Townsend with Taft today, said he lieved Michigan was solid for the pres- ident from the reception he had re- ceived. At every stop good crowds greeted him with cheers. In his addiess Taft said in part: "My fellow citizens: I am going to tell jou in as simple a way as I why I vetoed the three tariff bills which congress submitted to me for signature at the close of this extra session. I called the session to se- cure the enactment in law of the Ca- nadian reciprocity treaty. This was done on July 22. Thefreafterrthe W0ol bill, the free-list bill, and the cotton, bill were presented to me for signa- ture, and I returned them, without my approval, and explained my rea- sons for doing so in a special mes- soge on each bill. "What I say here will be in large part a resume those messages, with some additional suggestions that the less formal character of this address permits. I am not going to discuss the Payne bill, except to say that the con- troversy over its merits or demerits developed a very strong sentiment among republicans, and. indeed among many democrats, that a bu- reau or commission or board of com- petent persons should be constituted to make investigation into the facts concerning the dutiable articles in the tariff, and tc report them in such a way that congress and the public might be reliably advised of the prob- able effect of and proposed revision of the tariff in the future. "The Payne offered an oppor- tunity to me to appoint a-board ef competent persons to assist me in the administration of the revenue and especially of the maximum and minimum clause of that aact; and the revenue laws were of sufficient lati- tude to enable me to direct this board to make a "glossary" of the tariff terms and a kind of encyclopedia which would furnish a guide to the understanding of the tariff, and also to proceed to determine the compara- tive difference between the cost of production of dutiable articles under the various tariff schedules in this country and abroad. "The wool bill proposed a revenue duty of 20 per cent upon raw wool in- stead of 11 cents a, pound, a reduc- tion, of considerably more than 50 per cent of the present duty, and an av- erage -duty of 50 per cent on woolea cloth and manufactures. This waa avowedly a tariff for revenue and was not drawn for the purpose of protect- ing the industries. It paused the house and went to the senate, where an insurgent republican senator pro> posed a substitute in which the duty on wool of the first class was fixed at 40 per cent, and of a second class, or carpet wools, at 10 per cent, and the average percentage on the woolen manufactures was made 60 per cent ad valorem. It was claimed by its author to be a protection bill It waa never submitted to a committee, no evidence was ever taken in regard to it, and it was evolved from the inde- pendent investigation of a single sen- ator. A majority of the insurgents and the democrats in the senate com- promised on a bill which made the tax on raw wool, first class, 35 per cent; second class, 10 per cent; and the average duty on woolens, 55 per cent. The bill, against the vote of (Continued on Page 9) NEWARK, 0. Sept. pto- gram for the Ohio annual conference of the Methodist church to be heldf here Sept 27 to Oct. 2, was announced 1 today.
