"Editor .Tomr Mceeath"' would <(o Mr.
llolloway a kind act if lie could "side-
track'" hiii. The fact is Mr Holloway
has not the ghost of a chance to succeed;
and even if lie could, success at the polls
would itean, a signal failure ;il office.
Mr. lHoloway is a nice, pleasant Christ-
ian gentleman, a respected and valued
citizen, but aside from this, has not A
single qualification to reconniend him for
the position lie seeks. In education,
force of character, aggressiveness, cour-
age, administrative ability, and all that
goes to constitute the essentials of educa-
tional leadership, hlie is conspicuously
wanting. The Exponent is not unfriendly
to Mr. Holloway. If it had been it would
have rejoiced to see him enter this race iin
which lie is sure to be defeated. These
may be iuipleasant truths we have the
courage to tell him, but in. stating the'i
we are acting nitich more Ahe part of a
real friend than are those who are urging
him onil to certain defeat-as, when too
late, perhaps, lie himself will see'and ad-
ntit. The politicians who have deluded
hiit into entering this hopeless contest
have done a good man a great wrong.
No, Brother McKenzie, we have no
hope of. "sidetracking" Mr. Holloway;
though, for his own sake, we wish we
could, and save him front the wreck on
to which he is rushing. We have for
himn only the kindest of feelings, and
will sjymipathize with himi in the distress
that will follow his defeat far more than
will any of- those who have urged himi
60: to it.
We are opposing himit not because of
unkind feelings for him ior kind feelings
for hisi opponent; but solely because in
our opinion lie is not State Siperinten-
dient timber. Ilte does not measure up
to the requircinelits. Hlow Mr. McKen-
zie can call Mr. llIolloway an "educator"
surpasses our comprehension. If he has
ever been all ; aivcate or exponeniit of any
educational doctrine or policy, we have
failed to hear of it. lie hlias taught a few.

Required to ElectrocUte Negro Murder.
er In Bing Sing Prison.
Frank White, a negro, was put to
death In the electric chair at the state
prison In Auburn, N. Y., Tuesday for
the murder of George Clare, a farmer
of Ecriba, Oswego county.
Six contacts, egch of 1,740 vults 7
1-2 amperes were.applied before White
wiw pronounced dead.
After the fourth contact a strange
gurgling in his throat made the phy-
stcians step back and horrified the
spectators. The contact was quickly
repeated, but still tle stethoscopes re-
corded cardiac action and twp more
contacts were given. l d"ing the sec-
ond contact the head electrode flashed
brilliantly and there was an ordor of
burning hair. The executioner said
it was the sponge beneath the elec-
trode. He adjusted It more tightly
before the next shock.
Among those who made a test with
the stethoscope was Dr. U. B. Stein,
of Buffalo, and he reported that the
heart had not ceased to beat. When
he had resumed his seat in the front
'row and the fifth contact had been
turned on, he suddenly pitched for-
ward and fel tfo the floor in a swoon.
He was picked up b:- three keepers
and carried from the death chamber
but soon revived .
State Electrician Davis, In charge of
the execution, explained the gurgling
In White's throat by saying that ho
held his breath for a few moments
before the first contact and it was
simply toe air escaping from his lungs.
Hoe declared that White was practically
dead after the first contact.
White, who was about 25 years of
age, was employed by Clare on the lat-
ter's farm. On September 15, 1902,
White enticed the farmer into a corn
field on a pretext that tee cows were

In Dealing With Reyes Re
gardingNote of Colombia.


Unotrial FPereeeW of Colombla's Oe.
,mande. *ln Officil CIroles the
CoenOneue of Opinion Is that.
War is Inevitable.

A Washington special says: The
president has designated Secretary
Root to conduct the Panama negotlr
tons with General Reyes, of Colom.
bla, during the Illness of Secretary
This announcement was made after
a long cabinet meeting, held Tuesday
afternoon, at which Secretary Root laid
before the president the ueralls of his
Interview with the Colombian minis-
ter. Careful consideration was given
to the Colombian note filed with the
state department by General Reyps,
but It can be said that no answer yet
has been made to it. Secretary Root
lnfgrmed General Reyes Tuesday after-
noon that the reply of this govern-
ment was no treaty, but tiat It would
be given as soon as possible. Secre-
taey Root will give the response to
General Reyfe When a decision as to
it precise nature shall have been
rec bed.
No Intimation oz the contents of Gen-
eral Reyes' note or of the reply of
this government is given froti any au-
thoritative source It is known, how-
ever, that the administration regards
the ratification of the treaty with the
republic of Panama as the first step to
be takes in the entire pending matter.
What this government may do subse-
quently will be determined, at least
in part, by the olrcumstances then
surrounding the case. Just now, It is
said, auihoratitively, there is nothing
In the situation to arouse serious con-
Crisis Is Approaching.
The Atlanta Journal's special Wash-
ington correspondent wires his paper
as follows: Although General Reyes,
the Colombian president-elect, ha. not
made known the contents of his note
regarding the Panama situation whleh
he Intends presenting to this govern-
ment, it Ia evident that the adminia-
tration is informed a9 to its real pur-
The briefest way of stating the
terms of the communication is to say
that it contains three alternatives, to-
First-Restoration of the status prior
to the revolution.
Second-The United States not to
Interfere with Colombia's dealings with
Third-Il neither of- the preceding
proposltions Is accepted the United
States shall pay damages to Colombia
for loss of territory the amount to be
fixed by The Hague tribunal.
Belief on both sides that those prop-
ositions will prove futile is in no wise
altering the purpose of the adminis-
tratlin, as is evidenced by the fact
that the armed forces of the United
States on both sides of the isthmus are
now being reinforced with vessels and
marines, while troops are being held
In readiness for emergencies, and In
fact that Colombia's representatives
are making preparations for departure.
Dr. Herran, charge d'affafrs, is get.
ting the archives of the legation ready
for removal.
General Reyes will remain only until
he has gone through the last resort of
seeing his note to this government
reach congress, and then, when his
presence here becomes embarrassing.
he will take his departure.
Meanwhile, although General Reyes
has daily cabled to Colombia beseech-
ing his country to refrain from any
act hostile to the United States, there
is not the slightest doubt among those
Informed of the situation, and the char-
acter of the Colombians that they will
quickly plunge into reck.egs and des-
perate war, which no leadership can
possibly avert.
That the Colombian heart will bo
fired with the return of General Reyes
from his bootless mission Is not at all
doubted here.

REi5auft Wnrshlp to Petrel
Wa"rs of great Lakes.

A special from Ottawa, OnL, sayl:
The building of a Canadian armed
cruiser for the great lakes hba caused
comment on the treaty supposed to re-
strict such a mEqvoment.
Under Secretary of State Pope
points out that no such treaty exists
between Great Britain and the United
States, limiting the number and armar
meat of vessels to be maintained by
the United Statev or Canada on the
great lakes.
There is an agreement to cease plac-
ing tlem there after six months' no-
tice by either country. Mr. Pope
doubts if It is binding.
The state department at Washlng-
ton bas not Been informed up to this
time that the Canadian government
contemplates placing an armed cruiser
on the lakes in addition to the few
small and insignificant naval vessels
now maintained there. Recently the
Canadian government laid down
couple of revenue cutters for lake se
vice and although these were, being o0
modern type, better vessels than.those
heretofore employed for this work,
their construction was not regarded
In Washington as violating the treaty.
Attention was called to the matter,
however, by some of the congressmen
from the groat lakes section and the
state department made a quiet but
effective Inquiry into the character of
the Canadian cutters. It appears that
a United States naval officer visited
the place where the vessels were being
built and examined their construction,
a fact that gave rise to some feeling
on the part of the Canadians when
they learned of the visit.
As soon as congress reconvenes
there will, without doubt, be a renewal
of the attempt which has been made
annually for the last ten years to se-
cure a repeal or modification of that
section of the Rush treaty between
the United States and Great Britain
that limits the use of naval vessels on
the lakes. Representative William A.
Smith, of Michigan, has taken a par-
Ucularly advanced posililon in thbis
matter, and his activity has, It Is said,
excited a corresponding move In Can-
He had heard from some quarter
that he hellevep to be reliable, a state-
ment that the Canadian government is
about to enter a formal protest against
the location of the proposed United
BStates naval training station on the
Great Lakes, according to the plans ot
the Taylor board to which congress is
expected to give effect during the
present session.
Anticipating such a protest, Mr
Smith has already prepared himself
to renew with force the attack upon
the Rush treaty, holding as he does,
that It has had a paralyzing and disaR
trous effect upon the Important ship.

these places were comparatively de-
serted and some of them closed en.
tirely with doors locked and curtains
From early Thursday morning until
late at night crowds beslefled the un-
dertaking rooms and hospitals looking
for the dead and Injured. Policeme-
were detailed at all places where the
dead and injured had been carried,
to restrain the anxious men and wo-
men who pressed in at the doorways
and inquired for their lost friend& and
In all the undertaking rooms the
bodies were placed, as far as possible,
upon cots, and when these were ex-
hausted stretched in long lines upon
the floor, and a constant succession
of pale-faced men and tearful women
proceeded slowly between the lines
lifting the covers from the charred
and bruised faces and searching in
the clothing of the dead for something
by which their lost ones could be rec-
ognized. In many Instances women
fainted when lifting the sheet from
some face in which they recognized
the features of a dead child or a beau-
tiful young girl., Scenes that were en.
acted around the bodies of the little
children were pathetic in the extreme.
While the crowds of anxious seekers
for news besieged the morgues, the
telegraph and long distance telephone
offices were almost swamped with the
flood of Inquiring messages. Messen-
ger boys from the telegraph office of
the Postal and Western Union carried
bundles of messages, and the terrific
rush of business was still on. Private
wires of stock exchanges and board
of trade houses were likewise loaded
down with inquiries and answers.
Woe Is on Every Side.
It is no extravagance of language to
say that the city Is stunned by the
overwhelming tragedy enacted when
the theatre which housed "Mr. Blue-
beard" became a chamber of horrols
indeed. There Il the deepest woe In
hundreds of homes, deep sorrow in a
thousand others, and a pity beyond
the potency of words to convey In aJl.
The first streak of daylight on the
snow-covered streets Thursday morn-
ing found the morgues still the sorrow-
haunted centers of many a searcher.
There were husbands searching for
wives, frenzied parents seeking their
children, so many of whom lost thblr
lives ,and in some Instances, wild-
eyed children, still dated from the hor-
ror of their experience, groped dis-
tressingly about in search of father
or mother.
The total number of victims involvit
In the tragedy are estimated at 1,088.-
the dead are estimated at 564; the
missing are 314. This Includes the
vast number of people who are either
dead, injured or unidentified which
have not as yet been accounted for.
One hundred anad fifty-seven are i
the city hospitals. It Is estimated that
53 of the injured will die. These fig
ures are furnished from a careful sum-,
mary made of the tragedy return from
all sections of the city, Including tithe
hospitals, temporary morgues an6

doctors' offices and private resledeaes
and homes of the Injured. The report
is based upon InformaUon returned bY
the police, firemen, doctors and news'

* Mrs. Weisslitz, president of the Ger- 1

man Womans' Club of Buffalo, N. Y., after

doctoring for two years, was finally cured
of her kidney trouble by the use of

Lydia E Pinkhamrn's Vegetable Compound.
Of all the diseases known with which the female organism is afflicted,
kidney dise aseis the most fatal. In fact, unless prompt and correct treatment
it applied, the weary patient seldom survives.
Being fully aware of this, Mrs. Pinkham, early in her career, gave careful
study to the subject, and in producing, her great remed for woman's ills-
Lydtia E. Plnkham's Vegetable Compound maie sure that it con-
talned the correct combination of herbs which was certain to control that
dreaded disease, woman's kidney troubles. The Vegetable Compound acts
in harmony with the laws that govern the entire female system, and while
there. are many so called remedies for kidney troubles, Lydia E. Pink-
hatms Vegetable Compound is the only one especially prepared
for women.
