Now that it 1 alt over, the effect of yes

at the lack of enthusiasm. They were dis

They had actually counted on SO.OSO people

disappointed that such a limited number
could hear the speeches. Here is on expla
nation of the lack of enthusiasm given by
a prominent Lincoln democrat:
"You see this was a nonpartisan meeting
and therefore we did not cheer Mr. Bryan
very much, because we did not want to
hurt the feelings of the republicans who
were In attendance."
The explanation la good when considered
along with Mr. Bryan's speech of denuncia
tion of the republican party.
Another democrat made this explanation:
"It waa too hot to cheer."

new and . daring method of dVseent. He
stopped the motor at a heUht of seventy,

gradual descending glide. Th cslcuiatlons
were not absolutely correct and the left
wing of the aeroplane came In contact with
the ground. Thl tot the frsme of th
machine, Mr. Wright was not injured.
Mr. Wright said he did not regard the
accident as serious and explained that
these were only incidental txperiencea de
