of WIKInm Jennings Bryan to Connecticut
today must have strongly reminded him of
the strenuous days during his presidential
campaign, for he made four addresses, each
of considerable length, attended two re
ceptions and wai the center of handshaking
bees whenever hi admirers could reach
him. All this wan crowded Into the hours
between noon, when he reached this city,
and the hour of Ms retirement tonight as
tha guest of former Senator Archibald Mc
Nell of Bridgeport. Everywhere he waa
heartily received, although there waa an
absence, of street demonstrations both here
nd In Bridgeport. His audiences, however,
were at times wildly enthusiastic, espe
cially at the noon luncheon here.
, The features of the day were the luncheon
and the conference of New England demo
crats. At the former Mr. Bryan waa wel
comed to the city and state with a cor
diality that for warmth haa seldom been
extended to a visitor, and at the tatter he
stood before a representative body of New
rland democrats and with great earnest-
spoke of the problem which the party

to be of paramount Importance at this time.

M'CABE WRITES TO PARKER
Methodiat Bishop Repndlnte Addre
to Policyholders to Which Com
mittee Signed His frame.
NEW YORK, Aug. 31.-A letter from
Bishop Charles C. McCabe of the Moiho
dlt. Episcopal church, addressed to Alton
B. Parker, chairman of the executive com
mittee of the international policy holders'
committee, urges the committee to adopt
the administration tickets of both the New
York Lire Insurance and the Mutual Life
Insurance companies. The bishop expresses
disapproval of an address issued by the
committee In which attacks, were made on
the management of the New York Life In
surance company and the Mutual Life In
surance company. He says thia address
was sent to policy holders with his. nume
appended to It, but the address was never
submitted to him and he protests against
the further expression in the name of the
committee of opinions and accusations with
which he has no aympathy and which lie
is convinced have no sufficient justification
In fact. The letter In part is aa follows:
When I Joined the International policy
holders' committee 1 understood that its
purpose were to consider the advice which
should be given to the policy holders of the
New York Life Insurance company and the
Mutual Life Insurance company In their
own best Interests after obtaining all
available Information. I was. therefore,
surprised when an address was sent to the
policy holders with my name appended to
it which had never been submitted to -me.
I did not approve of the address or of the
other page printed .with It and purporting
to be issued by the committee. I am quite
sure that the members of the committee
who may have personally signed the ad
dress cannot possibly approve the form
In which t haa been sent ont or the In
temperate and vituperative language In
which our allepred opinions Are constantly
net forth by tut spokesman of the com
mittee. . ..
I havo considered fully the duty lmj-od
upon ma and I protest against the further
expression In the .name of the committe
of opinions and accusations with which I
have no sympathy and which I am oon
vlnced have no sufficient Justification in
The administration tickets of the tvo
companies Include many gentl-men known
to me and many others of whom I have
obtained much Information. I am satis
fied that It Is not possible to nominate trus
tees who, under all the existing circum
stances, could better conserve the great
Interests of the policy holders than those
recently named on the two administrative
tickets. You are the chairman of a sjb-
rimmlttee. charged with the duty of form
ing a ticket, and so far amy voice and
vote are to be considered I urgently rec
ommend the adoption by your committee
of the administration tickets of both com
panies and jthelr unanimous election Dy me

WASHINGTON, Aug. 81 Secretary Wll
aon assured the representatives of tha meat
packing Interest of the country with
whom he continued his conference today
that he had no authority to extend be
yond the first of October next, the placing
of tabela on canned or other meats pro

must be prepared on that date properly
to label their goods or they would not be
permitted to send them through the chan
nel of Interstate commerce.
The question was raised aa to the atatua
of goods now on the shelves of the whole
sale and retail merchants of the country.
The secretary said It waa manifestly im
possible for the government to Inspect
them. The owners or holders of the foods,
he suggested, would have to take their

certain:; They could not be shipped from

That Mr. Reoewatei's. death waa a pro
found shock tt the comritunlty wag evident
upon every hand. The news spread with
the utmost rapldltv and" thronga of people
rushed to The Bee building for fconOrme
tion of the report, hoping to find it untrue.
Others , kept the . telephones In The .Bee
offices 'continuously engaged with anxious
Inquiries. Men prominent In the affaire of
the city, aome of whom had known' or
been associated with Mr. Rosewater during
his long and active career in Omaha and
the state, came to the office. . Here are
aome of the expressions of prominent clti
sens: Dr. George L. Miller The sudden . death
of Edward Rosewater comes to meAJ It
does to the community.-a a great shock
ami I fullv share In trie conviction that
his death ie a public loss. . I bad known
Mr. Rosewater . alnce his manhood life be
gan in this country and when he waa an
obscure telegraph operator. It was my
fortune to antagonise .him for many years
as a partisan editor of the Omaha Herald.
We had many sharp and bitter conflicts
and controversies. It was through them
that I learned to measure this peculiar tal
ents and . abilities. I saw him grow and
expand and I have often borne personal
testimony to bla grasp of large affairs. In
recent yeara I have sharply differed with
him, and yet. I have had a. very agreeable
relation with him, both as a cttlsen and as
an editor. I sincerely deplore his death.
He was a power in the west and not merely
In Omaha, H waa a power at the seat
of government and . his capacity to do
tftlngs was equal to that of any other man
I have ever known In this section of the
union. I cannot close what I am to say
about Mr. Rosewater without expressing
once mors my appreciation of his breadth
and constructive ability and capacity to
manage a great metropolitan newapapox,
for that Is what The Bee is and has been
for many years.
Always Fall Of Work.
' Mr. Rosewater was always known to be
on of the most liberal clttsena In the
promotion of alt gobd- enterprises, free
handed to charity, sympathetic with the
suffering. HI ambition for Omaha waa aa
broad as It wss genuine. It waa only last
Tuesday that I. had a long conversation
with him In respect to the future Im
provement of Omaha. I found that h
had brought bark with him from Europe
Italian plana for a market house, among
other things, and had made a atudy of tae
enlargement of the court house, which
p fovea that he had come out from the
senatorial contest ready again with a busy
mind and his known energy to go to work
g4ln for the upbuilding of the city In
which he had such great pride and for
which he had done eo much. '
Included In the discussion, which was
quit lengthy, the question of chesp power
snd ths future Industrial Interests of the
city came up. I was again struck with
his originality and clearness of view upon
every question to which he gave hla
strength and attention. I only add that he
will bs greatly missed, not only In this
city and atate. but. In this greet section of
ths union, aa one of the strongest and
ableat personal and political forces which'
this trsnsmlssouri region has sver known.

rlck at Co. Having known a number (
Mr. Rosewater' relatives In Cleveland,
O., I formed Mr. Edward Roscwater'a
acquaintance shortly after I came - to
Omaha in 1SS7. I have always had a great
admiration for Mr. Rosewater' aggres
sive personality. In the battles which iio
has waged In his paper I found him to ba
usually on the side of right and from my
observation of the man I found he never
asked quarter from anyi. man, and that he
always conducted hla fights In' the open. 1
talked with him for sqtne length wjiile tn
the way to Lincoln prior to tha lajie cou
veution and he told me about the start of
The Bee, building snd his application' for
Ufo insurance at that time. - He aUted
that a number of prominent physicians bad
refueed to pass favorably on hie applica
tions, claiming there wag some affliction
Of the mitral valve of the heart that th.y
warned him at that ' time that he must
cease work or he Would not live two ycure.
He said he then consulted with the great
est heart specialist In the country In New
York city and after an examination ho
said "yes there is trouble in the mitral
valve but it will be there twenty yeara
from now" and after that he was accepted
by most of the companies snd he laugh
ingly remarked: "All of the physicians who
turned me down are dead." He waa my
friend. Always faithful and Just to me,
his death cornea to me as a great shock
and yet I feel that It ia a fitting close to
his busy life and as he would have had it.'
Friend of,Y. M. C. A.
. B. C. Wade, General Secretary of the
Young Men's Christian Association I waa
severely shocked, as I ' know everyone In
the city must have been, at the news -of
Mr. Rosewater's death. In my' association
with Mr. Rosewater during my brief resi
dence here I found htm kind and generous.
He. was a great help , to ua In our cam
paign for lha fund with which to erect tho
new Young Men's ' Christian - Association
building. He not only gave ' generously
himself, but got out and solicited ' from
others. . '
George P. Bemls, ex-Mayor of Omaha
I knew Mr. Rosewater long before he
founded The Bee and have been a great
admirer of hla work from that time to thia.
He was Indefatigable 'in hla efforts for
Omsha and Nebraska. Two days ago I
walked with Mr. Rosewater from the Bee
building to Twentieth and Douglas streets,
and he then told me of hla future plana,
which, be said, was somewhat interrupted
by the loss, of the nomination by the con
vention, but he said he had bla plana all
marked out and would still be able to do
a world of good (or this city and state
and cpuld probably' accomplish as much
good' as If he bad gone, to ths senate.
Judge Ben 8. Baker Edward Rosewater
waa' one of the great men of the nation.
He left a monument "of his great work.
Hla death represents a great loss to
Omaha, ths state and the nation. Hla ad

rest came all at once; his loss will be felt
by us all.

No man In the atate haa ever been looked

where the statesman and political economist
does not know of. Mr. Rosewater. His
personality has built up a paper known
as one of the foremost, editorially, In the
Unitd States. I am ready to suy that
Mr. Rosewater had faults, and that he
made mistakes, but he worked according
to his convictions, and I am glad to say
ha was generally on the right side and
that ia the side, of the people. Mr Rose
water was a true man. When he professed
to bo your friend, you knew that he
meant It, and that he would fight for your
Interests. I am deeply sorry Mr. Rose
water was defeated at the atate convention,
for more than any other man he deserved
the aenatorshlp at the hands of the people
Ot Nebraska. I waa with him when the
vote that nominated Mr. Brown was taken,
and I could see by the pallor of his face
that he waa sadly disappointed. Still, the
speech he made shortly after was the

convention admiring him more than ever.

He died all alone, and suddenly, from

the body on entering hla court roorr
shortly before t o'clock and at once gavt
Mr. Rosewater was found sitting In at
easy posture at the end of one of the spec
tators' benches, near a window. He wai
apparently asleep, and so natural waa hit
appearance that Judge Troup sought to
awaken him at first. He had evidently sat
down, overcome by exhaustion and diet
shortly after sitting down, for there wai
not the, slightest evidence of pain oi
struggle, or even a movement of the bod
to Indicate that he had even an Instant !
suffering. Drs. Hoffman, and Goetx, who '
were called, gave It as .their opinion thai
heart failure was the cause ot death.
Working: Hard- as tsnal. v(
Mr. Rosewater had been .working vrj
hard of late. The end ot the campaign,
preliminary to the republican atate con
ventlon found htm aa ardent as ever, ami
he waa entering on the state campatgi
with his customary vigor. On Thursday he
went to Waterloo, Neb., to addresa the old
soldiers at the reunion there. He spoke
during the afternoon, and came back to
Omaha on a local train, reaching tha city
about 5 o'clock. He visited the offloe at
once, and spent from 6:30 to S o'clock at
his desk, and In conversation With hla aon,
Victor. He went to hla home tor dinner,
aa usual, the only thing out of the ordi
nary being a remark to a reporter at
he paased through, to the effect that he
felt very tired after the hot day.
After dinner he left the house for the
editorial rooma, thia being at almost ex
actly 7 o'clock. The last time he waa
seen alive waa about 7:16, when he met
the Janltreas on the third floor of the Be
building, not far from the little corridor
leading to Judge Troup's court room To
her be spoke very pleasantly, and with her
he shook: hands, remarking, that it was the
first time he had seen her sinoo his return
from Rome. He was apparently in his
normal health at-. that time, and It la
known that he waa expecting to do con
aiderable work during the evening;. A
number of partlea called to gee hla, but
were disappointed because lie was not l.i.
Alarm at Hi Homo.
HI wit did not look (or him home
early, and prepared hla room for yhlm
bafor retiring, herself. It waa not an
uncommon thing for him to be out late
at night, and be thought nothing ot it
when he did not get home before ehe
retired. When she awoke In the morning
and found hi bed undisturbed, she becam
alarmed and telephoned to Victor Roae
water. Ha Immediately called up a friend,
and Chief Donahue, and a aearch was In
stituted. Thia was In progress when Judge
Troup mad hi sad discovery. At that
time medical assistance was promptly called

nothing out of thv ordinary. One of hi
fixed habits was a daily inspection ot the
Be building. He visited It from floor tj
floor some -time during every duy be was
In the city almost, making g close Inspec

to tha highest standard at all times. This
accounts for hla presence on ' the third
floor at that time ot the evening, lis had
not been sbte to get around during th dy,
and so determined to utilize the fw mo
