The Jarksonlan banquet splashed a aea of
vivid colors around tha Paxton hotel last
night. There was the glitter of gold lane
on the cheats of the newly made "colo
nels," the red twinkle of ruddy wines, tha
white sheen of linen on guests arrayed In
dinner Jackets and a variegated and pie
bald color effect from the scarfs of those
who were not garbed In evening dress.
It was a Jarksonlan. not a Jeffereonlan.
dinner and simplicity ruled not. The af
fair was, In fact, quite elaborate and or
namental and also fairly moist. The supply
of oratory wa seztenslve and gems of
thought and pearls of rhetoric were con
tributed by, William J. Bryan, Governor
A. C. Bhallenberger, Ralph A. Clark and
E. O. Garret among others. Clark halls
from Richardson county and Is In ths leg
islature. hTe assembly waa his subject
and he spoke eloquently, If not definitely,
as to what mighty works the democratic
majority wlll achieve for the state of
Nebraska and the "peo-pul." Garret, It
may be said, lest any have perchance
forgotten, ran for llentenant governor on
the democratic ticket laat fall.
Colonels Are Refulgent.
Bryan, Bhallenberger and the colonels
were the central figures. If the latter
were the more refulgent In aspect they
eould not scintillate verbally as did the
speaker who was at his best In many ways.
Mr. Bryan talked at some length with re
gard to the late unpleasantness and for
the first time In Nebraska explained how
he thought It all happened. It doth ap
pear that "the ooe reive power of concen
trated wealth" was largely responsible for
the Immolation of democracy during the
Ides of November.
The dinner was something In the nature
of a post mortem and ruda and Icono
clastic spectators declared that the dem
ocratic technique In this work is becoming
facile through practice. The dinner In
theory waa to honor on Andrew Jackson,
the anniversary of whose New Orleans
victory occurred threa days ago, but some
how or other all the speakers forgot about
"Old Hickory" and a a theme, for-post
prandial eloquent, "irs was not.
Mr. Bryan's subject was "What of the
Night." He reviewed the political con
tests of tha last twelve years, showing
how the democratic position had been
vindicated by events, and declared that
the party had bean a dominating influence
in political thought. He described In de
tail the Influences which were most potent
In the late campaign, namely: "A larger
campaign fund, an army of government
employes drawing their salaries from the
treasury, three-fourths of the newspapers
cr more against us and the coercive power
of concentrated wealth."
Mr. Bryan said that many of that papers
that had supported the ticket during the
' campaign were In ths habit of repudiating
the platform when the campaign waa over,
but that the rank and file of the party
maintained Ita Integrity In spite of the
obstacles It had to meet. He advocated
the organisation of permanent democratic
clubs In every eounty, the establishment
of a democratic paper In every community
and the continuation of the educational
work as the things necessary for future
During the evening he was asked to ex
press his views on ths controversy between
President Roosevelt and some members of
tho national congress, but declined to do
so, saying he probably would later have
something to say.
Mr. Bryan 1U leave for Chicago within
a day or two.

LOS ANGELES, Cal.. Jan. ll.-Brt M.
Taylor, for whose srrest on charges of
arson, assault and murder a reward of
$1,500 Is offererd. has been epprehended st
San Bernardino and Is now In Jail there.
Taylor la wanted at Mlnden. Kearney
county, Nebraska.- He surrendered himself
to a brakeman on a Southern Pacific Main,
saying he was tired of being hunted.
He denies his guilt snd lays the blame for
the crimes on another man whom ha al
leges assaulted and bound him In his room
and then committed the crimes alleged
against the two young sisters-in-law of
Taylor.' The date of the alleged crimes
was April 28. 1908. Taylor says the man Im
personated him and that since the day of
the crimes he has been engaged in a fruit
less effort to capture him. 4
' History of tho Crime.
The crime' charged against Taylor st
Mlnden Is one of the most brutal In the an
nals of the state. OA the evening of April
28, it is charged. Taylor entered the home
where he had been living with Pearl Tay
lor, aged 17 years, snd Ida Taylor, aged
13 yesrs, sisters of his dead wife, and crim
inally assaulted the older girl and severely
best the younger one. Bellvlng both to be
dead. It Is charged, Taylor then poured
kerosene on the floor and set fire to the
building. The younger girl revived and
made her way to a neighbor's house and
Cave the alarm.
A posse was at once formed and a search
was made for the missing man which for a
time promised to result successfully. He
was traced southward Into Kansas snd
down Into Oklahoma but there all clues
Mlnden and the surrounding country were
arouset by the brutality of the crime snd If
Taylor had been found then he probably
would have been lynched. May 8 Pearl
Taylor, the older girl, died of her Injuries
and this served again to Inflame the popu
lar mind. Both girls Identified their brother-in-law
as their assailant.
About that time Deputy Sheriff A. A.
Wyatt of Mlnden received a letter from
Taylor which had been mailed In Okla
homa. In the letter Taylor denied his guilt
and declared the crime had been committed
by his double, a man from Dee Moines with
whom he had had trouble. He said his
"double'" bound and gagged him and forced
him to watch him while he assaulted the
girls. Afterward he said the man set fire
to the house and fled. Taylor said he
worked himself loose and started In pursuit.
At ths close of the letter he said he was
still after the criminal and would not return
until he had caught him. His story was
given little credence st Mlnden.
Taylor has a brother at Los Angelese and
It was bellved from the first he would even-
tualy go to California.
BODIES TAKEN FROM MINE

It is thought that all victims of the Sunday
explosion as the Letter coal mine In

Efforts to establish ths cause of ths
disaster are being made, but thus far few
of the theorists agree. Experts who had
Inspected the mine after ths recent fire In
It, declared It safe and full preparations
for a resumption of mining had been made
The men killed yesterday were cleaning up
the last of the debris left by the fire
fighters and It had been expected that coal
would be hoisted today.
The most widely accepted theory regard
ing the explosion regards It as the result
of fire damp leaking from the sealed por
tion of the mins and coming Into contact
with a spark from an electric trolley. There
was but little damage to the workings and
It Is likely that operations will be resumed
as planned at an early date.

Wind and snow made the day uncomfort

program of a parade and review of the
state troops was carried out as planned.
The Inauguration took place io the hall of
the house of representatives, the oath of
office being administered by Judge Henry
Lamm, the onty republican member of the
supreme court of the state.
Governor Hadley reviewed briefly the ad
ministration of his predecessor, called at
tention to the changes In the system of
government In the state due to the adop
tion of the Initiative and referendum amend
ment at the November election and then
took up the questions of home rule and law
"It has been asserted that home rule
means the abrogation or nullification of the
laws of the state," he said, "and particu
larly the laws regulating dramshops In the
large cities. Home rule means no such
thing. As I said during the last campaign,
"the laws providing for the regulation of
dram shops will still remain the laws of
the state until a majority of the people's
representatives want them changed."
The governor declared that If changes
are made in the laws so that the police
and other city departments now In control
of the state administration are turned over
to the municipalities there should be some
"reserved power" by which the state can
resume control should necessity arise.
. The new governor gave his sudltors to
understand that the laws regarding Sun

during his administration and he followed
the recommendation of Governor Folk that
laws should be passed prohibiting breweries
from holding interests, direct or indirect.

Bhawvan expressed his opinion of Bryan In
fervid and hectic language. Incidentally,
"polecat" was not the exact word he used
Scarcely anyone present at the meeting
was deceived as to Shawvan's condition at
ths time he made his attack on Bryan.
Shawvan's feelings were outraged be
cause Bryan dictated th e election of
Douglas Cameron as chairman of the Ne- j

votei of Nebraska to Washington.
"Bryan goes up and down the land,"
said Bhawvan, "talking equal rights for
all and special privileges for none, and
then he comes here with a compound
press and squeezes every bit of Individu
ality out of the electors, making them all
bow to his nodding as mechanically as a

the fact that he feels entitled to some
recognition ss having helped greatly to

LINCOLN. Jan. ll.-(Speclal )-Ths ap
pearance of W. J. Bryan in the lobby of
the Lincoln hotel shortly before ths demo
crats of tho houso mot In csucus to pass
upon tha report of the committee on com
mittees acted ss soothing syrup upon a
squad of belligerents who talked of tho
overthrow of the committee, selections.
Not a peep waa heard after the caucus
met. Holmes of Douglas county stood by
his guns, hut he stood alone. Speaker oPut
quietly Joined the Bryan majority and took
his medicine like he waa used to it, and so
did the ollnoruhle Judge Shoemaker and all
the rest. No Bryan lieutenant said a word
about Charlie Oraf for chairman of the
committee on hanking, even though Graf
does not stand for the bill which Mr. Bryan
has contended should be passed. That was
one place Mr. Bryan was afraid to buck
Dr. Hall arranged that part of the program
and Mr. Bryan wna afraid to go to the
mat with the Lincoln banker, and so In that
smiling way of his he accepted what Dr.
Hall gave him.
Judge Shoemaker of Omaha failed to put
In an appearance In the hotel lobby all
morning and It was feared for awhile that
he had concluded to remain out of the
caucus and let the house go to the bow
wows, but when the oaucua was called ha
was there all right voting with the ma
jority. He generously resigned the chair
manship of the committee on constitutional
amendments and permitted Mr. Butt of
Omaha to have that Job.
