Men Quarried, but Whether Fish Was Struck or Stumbled is Unknown. ' fBT TUB ASSOCIATED rRES3-A.M.J NEW YORK, Sept. 16. Nicholas ' Fish, millionaire, diplomat and de- acendant of one of the beat-known oi i iAjnerlcan famllleB, died at the Itoose-! velt Hospital at 3:25 o'clock this morn-t ing, as the result of an Injury received In Brhardt's saloon, No. 25 West Thlr-j ty-fourth street, yesterday. Whether be was murdered or fell the police have j not yet determined. ; Conflicting stories, such as would I naturally follow an event in which criminal responsibility must be placed, re told, but there seems to be no doubt , tha Fish had a quarrel with a private detective named Thomas J. Sharkey, who Joined the banker at a table, Where he had been for several hours, drinking with Mrs. Llbby J. Phillips and Nellie Casey. Mrs. Phillips, 38 ' years old, Mrs. Casey. 30, and Sharkey, 4S, were arrested early today in connection with the case. According to the police, Fish entered Krhardt's saloon. No. 25 West Thirty-fourth street, yesterday afternoon with Mrs. Phillips and Mrs. Casey. The police say that Mrs. Phillips knew who Fish was, but that neither Mrs. Casey nor Sharkey, who subsequently Joined the party, were aw.rre or his Identity. The police Bay that Klsh did, most of the buying. He discovered that his money was exhausted, end announced that he would have to dvaar a check. Sharkey, ignorant of his identity, questioned his ability to make the check good. Fish. It is aid, took offense at this, and angry words ensued. Then, according to the police, some one slapped Fish's face. One of the women, clinging to Fish's arm, dragged him to the sidewalk. The police say that Sharkey attempted to get at Fish, but was for a moment restrained by the other woman. He finally went out of the saloon, and encountered Fish on the ald'i-walk. Sharkey's nat had been knocked off, and he was bareheiiJ'Jj. Then-, wae a scuffle, h- whom commence! is not known. Fish fell, or va.3 knocked down, hla head striking a flagstone. Juet before the pcufile, Mrs. Casev, alarmed, hurriedly left the party. Bharkey boarded a street car. He was closely followed by Mrs. Phillips, who was carrying his hat. Fish was Jyin,' unconscious on the sidewalk when a policeman appeared. Fish's identity was not learned until the hospital was reached, and his clothing sean-hed. He was entered as a private patient. Mrs. Casey, Mrs. Phillips and Sharkey were arraigned today in the Police Court, and were held for th Coroner Jackson held fcharkey In $10,000 bail and Mrs. Phillips and Mrs. Casey In 1500 ball each as witnesses, Sharkey made the following state ment preliminary io his arraignment: 'I went into ErhorcU's, and saw two women wun wnom 1 am acquainted. They called out when they taw me, 'Oome over, and have a drink.' I went over and sat down with them, and arter i naa taiKed roma this banker. Fish, seemed to take iftens at my be- iijs were. v e nin a i-w words, ind all at once he drew off with his arm and truck me. Then w? both got up. i went out one door and no the other. He must have stumbled down the steps and fallen In going out.'' Coroner Jackson made an examination of Fish's body. He paid no fracture of the skull had been found. He believed death had been due to paralysis of the brain, caused by a blow on the left side of the face or bead. He thought that if Fish had fallen on a step or pavement and been Injured, the skull would probably have been fractured. The Coroner said that a knockout blow usually caused paralysis or concussion of the brain. The pnpil of Mr. Fish's right eye was dilated, whlla the left was contracted and that, the Coroner said, was a symptom of paralysis of the brain. Dr. O'Hanlon, Coroner's physician, performed an autopsy. He found that death waa caused by cerebral hemorrhage due to violence. Fish, who wa 63 years of age. was the descendant of one of the oldest and most distinguished of American families. Ilia grandfather, Col. Nicholas Fish, fouqht with distinction in the battle of Harlem Heights, Saratoga and Yorktown, and his father. Hamilton Fish, was the first Secretary of State under President Grant. After several years of diplomatic service, Nicholas entered the banking business In this city In 1887. Of his brothers, Hamilton Is former Speaker of the New Tork Assembly, and Stuyvesant Is president of the Illinois Central Railroad Company. LOORT.

POLITICAL. fcoNrriNTED roost nnsr page the suggestions that I have heard aga'nst any charges in the turiff. While 1 have been agaiaat a general revision, recognizing the wisdom of President Roosevelt In his first message to Congress, In which he advised against it, 1 have never been opposed to making needed changes, and 1 am not, I must say, and emphatically, that I do not be-lleve a slng.e schedule of the Dlngley tariff law can be so amended as to relieve the people from the oppreasion of trusts or combinations of capital, however named, and that such action might Involve the retarding of our expanding commerce, and the getting and hoiai.Jg of foreign markets. "Indeed, I believe such plan to be fraught with grave dangers to the people. I am a firm believer In reciprocity. I worked with untiring eeal to secure reciprocal arrangements between Cuba and this country, and I was successful In passing it through the House. The Senate did not act on the bill, because consideration of It would have permitted the opening up of the whole question of tariff revision. The House has nothing to say about the ratification of treaties, but the reciprocal rego'-lutions upon which it legislated lit respect to Cuba were not In tha nature of treaties, but they were reciprocal agreements, In , which, I think, our country would have the best of the bargain, althoi-Kh doubtless they would have been of great advantage to Cub i. "While I cannot speak for the prospects of favorable action on the bill sent to the Senate, 1 hope and believe that ty a treaty the same iresult may bo accomplished, and I have no doubt that President Roosevelt Is now working on the question of a treaty with Cuba to give that struggling young republic needed re:p, a It?, too, in which, while they will be gainers, we will not te losers. And now, let me say, and let there be no m. sunder-standing as to my roilt'on: "I believe In protection that will protect the hand of labor, the wheeu of Industry, every farmer and miner, and I am agalnBt winked corporntiona that would trample upon the rights of people to Talr play, and the fruits of h n-cst efforts. I am ara'nst unnecessary legislation that would t:irow my country Into panic and bring back tne horrors bequeathed to us by the last Democ atie administration. "In conclusion, I desire to say that after a careful study of condition! and po'itlcal views In Iowa, and !n my own district. I am eatUflud that I am nil in harmony with a great many of tha Republican voters who believe fcat free trade In who'.e or in part wilt remedy trie trust ev:i. I be'leve that it will rot, but that such a remedy !s likely to invlove the nation In dangerous results, and so believing. I feel that I elnuli not accept the nomination for Congress, which was ro gen-ernuHly tendered me, and I have decided acco dingly. I cannof part frcm a people that I have loved, and that have honored me without leaving an expression of my earnest and sincere views on this and other vital publlo questions. . Signed D. B. HENDERSON." EXAGGERATES DIFFERENCES. fBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS P.M. WASHINGTON. Sept. 16. Director George E. Roberta of the United States mint, the principal owner of the Des Moines Register, a paper which has advocated tariff revision, speaking tonight of Speaker Henderson's action, said: "This action ' of Speaker Henderson Is Incomprehensible. I am wholly unable to account for It. He was sure of reflection. His withdrawal of course would emphasize and exaggerate the differences that exist among Iowa Re publicans, and is to be especially de plored on this account. Gen. Hcnder son has a strong hold upon the a (Tec tions of our peopl3. Whatever differences of opinion existed on account of the tariff, no one has thought of his retirement from public lire." DR. PARDEE COMING. WILL BE HERE SATURDAY. tBT THE ASSOCIATED PRESS-P.M.J SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 16.-Dr, George C. Pardee, the Republican nominee for Governor, will open hl3 campaign at Los Angeles September 20, INVITED TO STATE FAIR. BT THE. ASSOCIATED PRESS P.M.) SACRAMENTO, Sept. 18. Gov.

Lane of San Francisco, Republican and Democratic nominees, respectively, for Governor, have been Invited to be present on this occasion. ASPIRANTS COME FORWARD. RACD FOR SPEAKERSHIP. IBT DIRECT WIR3 TO THE TIMES,! WASHINGTON, Sept. 16. Exclusive Dispatch. Speaker Henderson's an nouncement that her will not be a can didate for reelection to Congress this fall was the biggest political sensation that Washington has had for a good while. The Idea that he. is refusing to run because Mr. Henderson cannot agree with the administration as to tariff revision does not get full credit. Washington political folk seem to think that Speaker Henderson Is finding himself dropping off In popularity, through his course in Washington, and that this falling off has affected his strength In his Congress District In Iowa, where ex-Gov. Horace H. Boise is running against him. Boise Is the most popular man in all Iowa, Demo crat or Republican, and has twice car ried Speaker Henderson's district In his race for the Governorship of that State. Speaker Henderson's retirement from Congress will mean a great fight for the Speakership, In which conflict the forces of tariff revision and anti-tariff revision will line up for various can didates. Representative Llttlefleld of Maine will take the lead at an early date, and will have behind him at least a part of the administration's strength, on account of his supposed connection with the President's plans for Federal control of trusts. Mr. Llttlefleld, however, has severs! times opposed his party In the House on party questions, and the remembrance of this will drive some support away from him. There are a' good many staid old party men In the House who will not support any political "free lance" for Speaker. In opposition to Mr. Llttlefleld will be at least one man from the East. He will be Representative Sherman of New York, who was a candidate against Henderson two years ago, and who was defeated. Sherman Is an excellent parliamentarian, and has consid erable popularity In the house. Then, from the Middle West will come at least two candidates. Representative Cannon of Illinois, chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, will be one. He Is one of the oldest members of the House In point of service, and has long desired to end his career In the House by serving a Speaker for one term at least. Representative Hemrnwuy of Indiana will be another candidate. He is a young man of dark visage, End his chances will rest entirely upon his great ability, because he Is entirely without personal mag netlsm. ', ARIZONA REPUBLICANS. CONVENTION MEETS TODAY.

The platform also extends the sympathy of the Democratic party or Utah to Mrs. McKinley. No reference wus made In the plat form either to W. J. Bryan or 16 to 1 but the Kansas City platform was In dorsed, and the cheering which greeted Bryan's name when mentioned by Chairman Powers showed the feeling or the party toward the former leader. The convention, as regards contests. was absolutely devoid of features. Both nominations were made by aC' clamatlon, and the platform, as pre sented was adopted without amend me nt and amid much enthusiasm. A resolut on offered by a Salt Lake delegate requesting the State Central Committee to arrange, if possible, a series of debates during the campaign between united States senators Raw llns and Kcarns, was carried with a yell of applause, and it is said that the challenge will be In behalf of the senior Senator.

Senator Piatt presided over the Republican State Convention which met here today In his address to the convention, after eulogizing the State administration, Senator Piatt referred to the unexam pled prosperity of this country, and continued: , "In wise administration. In substan tial development, in International influence, we lead the world today. What other Issue does the Republican party need to present. The one overwhelm Ing issue of this campaign Is the Indorsement of the Republican adminis tration of William McKinley and Theo dore Roosevelt. "Recegnlz'ng the force of this, our opponents are indulging in a most frantic hunt for some other Issue on which to go before the people. When we restored the gold standard and reestablished the credit of the nation on colld foundation, its free-silver Issue disappeared with the clouds. When we gave Porto Rico popular ana representative government, when we put down rebellion in the Philippines, es tablished civil government there, clothed its inhabitants with all the rights guaranteed to our own citizens by the Constitution ana siartea u ;n the road to popular and representative government, Its paramount Issue of Imperialism became but a dissipated tog. .,, 'The d fference between tne KepuD- llcan and Democratic parties In the matter of trtiHts may be stated tnus: The Democratic party proposes to destroy trusts and the business conducted by them: the Republican party proposes to regulate trusts ana me Business conducted by them, to that no unfair advantage shall be taken of the people of the United States and to the full limit of its constitutional power It will carry out this policy."

Christian and Buddhist Observations in New York Gorgeousness of the Imported Candles. - New York Post: Long-ago missionaries, whose chronologic notions were a little bit confused, declared that Buddhism waa a palpable Imitation of, if not a deliberate steal from, Chris tianity. Besides the similarities in tenet were those in ritual and cere mony. This likeness may De seen oy any New Yorker for himself. Tho heavy immigration of Neapolitans and Sicilians has produced several little Italys In New York, which celebrate th festas of home with more enthusi asm even than is observed In the fatherland. A feature of these celebrations Is the presentation of votive candles to patron saints and to the Virgin. On the other hand, in Chinatown nearly every grocery store carries a stock of oriental votive candles, which are presented to Buddha; the Goddess of Mercy. Qwang Yin; the God of War, Owam Tl. and the God of Literature, Man-Mo-Mew. These candles are made to suit all tastes, as well as all conditions of the pocketbook. They range from poor, cheap little red affairs, like the Christmas tree candles, up to stately creations, four, five and six feet In length. , The Italians use both red and white, while the Chinese confine themselves almost exclusively to red. They use white and yellow upon special occasions, a white candle being symbolic of death, and n yellow one of heaven, or the Son of Heaven, who Is the emperor of the celestial kingdom. Formerly totn tne cninese ana Italians depended for their candles upon importing merchants. In the last few months the manufacture has sprung up in this city, and now attains fair proportions. In many respects the New York candles are better bits of work manship than the Imported ones. The latter are usually softer and greasier than the former, and produce a smok ier light. The home-made are manufactured from stearin, paraffin or wax. although the last-named substance Is growing Into disuse. The finest quality imported from China are made from in. sect wax, specially perfumed, whl'e one . variety of the Italian Imported Is made from clarified wax of fine quality, perfumed with the mild scent of blossoms. Both Italian and Chinese employ a randle which is really a shell within which the candle Itse-lf Is placed and held In position by means of a helical fjpring at the bottom of the shell. These shells are often profusely decorated and are etrlkingl;' handsome. The Italians prefer as ornamentation leaf work and geometrical patterns, while the Chinese like minute bas-reliefs of men, gods, dragons, mountains and landscapes. A handsome shell with candle within ranges from tl up to $50. according to slae and workmanship. It Is durable and Is used as an ornament In a church or n )ora houss for many years, Bartlett's at it Ajain. FrV- ulanEhterwt on hlch-fradfl planoi.
