Osaka passed the following resolution
without hindrance on tho part of tho

forfeits the fruits of victory und sows
seeds of futuro complications and dan
ger. Tho government's high handed
and unconstitutional measure has re
sulted in unexpected disturbance to
the peace of tho city in which the
mikado resides. The empiro'a boner

peace agreement will bo broken and
tho government will resign."

PAT CROWE IN LINCOLN.
Alleged Kidnaper Makes Fraternal
Call Upon Editor of the Commoner.
Lincoln, Sept. 13. Pat Crowe was
In Lincoln again and eluded Detective
James Mnlono by the skin of his teeth.
Malone had a hunch that Ciowo was
hi Lincoln, aud while lie went to the
otllco of Frank Gallagher, associate
editor of the Independent, expecting
Crowe to call there, the oIubIvo Pat
was locked In tho private ollico of It.
L. Metcalfe, editor of the Commoner.
Crowe called at the Commoner of
fice about 3:30 o'clock, walked to the
window lending to the business ofllcc
and asked for' a private conference
with Mr. Metcalfe. Metcalfe readily
consented to tho conference, not
knowing who his cnller was. When
asked concerning the visit of the al
leged kidnaper, Mr. Metcalfe said:
"Pal Crowe called upon mo and
stayed an hour. When they came In
und told me sonic one wanted to see
me, of course 1 had no Idea who It
was, nor did I recognize my visitor
when 1 saw hlni, he had changed so
much In appearance. He did not look
a great deal older, but had gained so
much In weight. But he proved to
mo before he left that lie was none
other tluin Pat Crowe, When I en
tered Hie room, without taking any
thought or the matter, I left the door
open. Ciowe immediately got up and
locked the door, thus seeming him
self and mo In the room. What he
wanted I do not know, except that he
asked for a square meal and I gave It
to him. I knew Crowe when I wns n
police reporter ami I Knew his broth
ers well. There could be no mistake
about my cnller being Pat Crowe.
While ho was In my ollico several peo
ple came to the door, but Crowe didn't
show any sIkiis of uneasiness. I am
satisfied Crowe left the city."
BRYAN NOT NOW A CANDIDATE.
Ncbraskan Makes Announcement at
Jefferson Club Banquet.
Chicago, Sept. 13. "I want to make
my position perfectly clear. I want to
say to you that not only am 1 not an
nouncing a candidacy, nut I am not
permitting a candidacy."
In those words William Jennings
Bryan administered a check to the en
thusiasm which, at the Jefferson club
banquet, given last night in Mr. Bry
an's honor, greeted the speeches ad
vocating his nomination for the third
time for president.
There luul been warm words of
praise for Mr. Bryan, particularly from
former Congressman Ollie M. James
of Kentucky nnd Judge James B. Tar
vin of Covington, Ky., who had de
clared unqualifiedly for Mr. Bryan ns
the Democratic nominee for president
in 1908 and from Alexander Throup of
Now Haven, Conn., who declared that
Bryan was the natural and legitimate
leader of tho Democratic party in the
coming campaign. When Mr. Bryan,
who camo Inst on the program, rose to
respond to the toast, "Democracy vs.
Centralization," he deferred for a few
moments entering upon his formnl ad
dress until ho had returned thanks for
the words of pialso showered upon
him by tho speakers who preceded
him and until lie bad set himself
right on the question of his possible
candidacy for tho presidency.
"I am not now," said Mr. uryan, "a
cnndldnte for any office. I havo never
said that I would never again bo a
cnndldato for office, but I want to say
now that talk of candidacy for offico
does not affect me ns it once did. I
believe that my plnco In history will
bo determined not by what the people
are able to do for me, but by what I
am ablo to do for tho people. I think
it Is now too soon to choose a candi
date for president to make the raco
three years from now; It Is too early
to plodgo ourselves to any ono man.
I trust that before the tlmo conies to
name a man for tho next presidential
raco light may bo thrown upon our
party's pathway and that a man may
bo chosen who will bo best able to do
for the party moie than I have yet
been ablo to do."
