BRYAN IN WRECK.
Uninjured In Fourth Smashup While
on Chautauqua Trip.
Belvidoie , 111. , Aug. 22. As William
tfennlngs Bryan adjusted his necktie
and blushed the cinders from his
trousers , after emerging safely from
a wreck near here today on the Chicago
cage and Northwestern road , he reflec
tively murmured "Four. "
Then drawing his ever faithful diary
from the upper vest pocket he noted
down the location by the sun , and the
date , with an epilogue of these words ,
"Fourth time a wreck has occurred on
my various Journeys to speak at the
Rockford chautauqun. Where is the
silver lining ? "
After completing these details he
picked his way between the several
cars that lay athwart the track , and
walked to the engineer who was dos
ing up a rheumatic engine.
"We're wrecked all right , " remarked
Mr. Bryan with a bland single , and
every one agreed with his views.
With a few more words on encour
agement to the train crew and other
passengers , who all escaped uninjured ,
Mr. Bryan placed his black slouch hat
jauntily on his head , nnd , grasping
his satchel , joined the line of refugees
who wended their way up the track
like the fag end of a bad theatrical
tour. For more than a mile and a
half Mr. Bryan "dot and carried one"
along the ties.
At Belvldero Mr. Bryan took a tro- }
ley nnd made the Chautauqua grounds
at Rockford about the middle of the
afternoon , behind schedule time.
The wreck on the Northwestern
which delayed Mr. Bryan was caused
by the baggage car taking an open
switch. Three coaches were ditched
Mr. Bryan was in ono of the day

FAMOUS CONTROVERSY OVER

FRICK SEES NHANGER AHEAD
Steel Magnate Advises Government to
Overlook All Misdeeds of Past.
New York , Aug. 22. Henry C
Frick , who came to town from his
summer home to attend the meeting of
the finance committee of the United
States Steel corporation , said : " 1
find nothing in underlying conditions
to wairunt the apparent great lack oi
confidence which now seems preva
lent. 1 can understand the vague , bu
real unsettlement of sentiment created
by current agitation against corpora
tions , but this Is in a meabuio , apart
from real conditioiib and Is capable ol
correction. 1 believe myself , and al
ways have , in the correction of abuses ,
whether corporate or Individual , but 1
feel that sucn care should be exercised
in doing this that only the wrongdoer
"Now that the government is deter
mined to entorco ln vs hitherto dor
mant , would it not bo well that actions
of the past , sanctioned by cubtom and
usage at that time , slould not be
called into question under the new or
der of things , but that such activity as
the government has shown should be
taken ns evidence of Its Intentions as
to the future , and serve as a fair warn
Ing to the managements of all corpora
tions. Of course , where corporations
are still acting outside of the law , un
knowingly , It is to be expected that
they should be set right , but I am
sure that can be accomplished without
harm to any ono and without the least
Injury to credit , if the situation Is
properly and Intelligently handled
by the administration. "

of thin plnco hat ) received Infoimntlon
fioin the second assistant postmaster
general that railway mall seivlco
would bo established for the Rosebud
towns west of Boncsteol on Septem
ber a as far as Oi egory.
This announcement will bo welcome
HOWH to the people In the reservation ,
since It was genet ally thought the
service would not ho established until
thu first of the year.
Dallas , the most remote of the
towns , must evidently continue to depend -
pond on the stage for Its mall , but
since the ralhoad has just been com
pleted to that point It Is likely the im
proved mall service will not ho long
in being extended to that town also.
