of Increases and decreases of the operations
of 1909 with those of 1908 is held to be un
reasonable, because. It Is said, 1908 was not
a normal year. Chicago, which led the In
creases In 1908 with a little more than
13,000.000, led them again In 190 with an In
crease of more than $28,000,000. New York,
which was second In 1908 with an Increase
of a little more than 14,000,000, reported an
Increase for 1909 of fcSS.OOO.OOO. Brooklyn,
which had reported a decrease of more than
$26,000,000 In 1908, came third In the 1908 in
creases, with a growth of $18,402,061. ,
Of the cities that showed decreases In
1909, San Francisco had the largest, $5,484,-
273, or 17.32 per cent; Dayton was next, with
$1,633,780, or 47.42 per cont, the largest pro

x The letter given out by W. B. Frloe In
withdrawing from the senatorial race In
favor of Dick Metcalfe Is a remarkable
evidence of his great capacity for renuncia
tion. Mr. Price says;
To My Friends In Nebraska: For many
. years 1 have devoted .nuoh time and eon
trlbuted of my means to the cause of the
people s government In this state and dur-
lng all of the time have supported the
candidates of the party with which I have
affiliated, except In rare oases where
have personally known they were not In
sympathy with the great reform movement
tending to restore constitutional govern
ment to the people, and to demonstrate
that the state government, as well as the
national, had the power and right to con
trol al corporations which the state
created. The saortfloes which I have made
have been without regard to my pergonal
affairs, being actuated only by the old
x fashioned doctrine that a oitisen'a first
duty Is to the state and the nation, and
If I have contributed In any way to make
the burden of the people lighter or it
have added "one thing that has riven
greater happiness to Just one of my fellow,
citlsens or It 1 have impressed upon any
the great responsibility of citizenship In
this democratic republlo my reward Is
ample. Therefore, when I announced ray
self as a candidate for the office of United
States senator I was not actuated by the
thoualit thai my party or the people owed
tne anything for the services given cither
the state or nation. All that I can do, all
that any citizen can do, to promotegood
government, to diffuse universal education
and to provide the means of comfort and
make easy the . road to happiness com
mensurate with the capacity of the people
to enjoy Is his sacred duty. I merely
exercised the right which every cltlsen has
under the law to submit my name for ap
lirovAl or rejection and to satisfy on
ambition which I have entertained to repre
sent the people of this state. 1 also feel
that In a small way I had especially con
tributed to the political conditions now
existing In our state that might bring to
my candidacy a sufficient following to
make my ambition reasonably etrtain of
.success and In this hope 1 have had tuanv
assurances from all parts of the state.
TLere are, however, many of my fi-lenda
who believe that another might be selected
that has renter elements of strength than
1 have and who may have contributed more
largely to the success of the cause which
Is so dear to myself and others. There
fore I am deferring to their wtrhes and
hereby announce my withdrawal. I do thin
with little reluctance, as conditions now
present themselves. Now, as ever, I long
for the succvhs of the things for which I
have contumi.d before the people In this
stato and under no circumstances could I
or would I permit ;ny personal ambition
to stand In the way. This action on my
part 1 know will be a keen disappointment
to many of my personal friends, but I wise,

flan Francisco's Decrease
The explanation of the decrease In San
Francisco, which at first glance may be
surprising when It Is recalled that they
apply to a city not long ago almost de
stroyed by an earthquake, Is that the build
ing In tan Francisco bas probably reached
a point nearly normal, for the first time
since the catastrophe of 1006. The annual
cost of building operations for five years In
San Francisco was: 1906, $18,268,763; 1901,
$34,927,39; 1907, $56,574,844; 1908, $31,668,341;
New Tork, In 1909, had the greatest num
ber of new brick buildings; Chicago took
the lead In stone structures. It also led In
concrete buildings, which were reported to
be 1,791 in number in seventy-nine of the
128 cities reporting, a considerable gain,
which is taken to show the growing uue
of that material.
n Seattle had the largest number of new
wooden buildings. Chicago built wooden
buildings which cost more and they alone
were valued at more than $13,000,000, while
Seattle, frlst in numbers, was third In
values. Reading, pa., was the only city
that reported no wooden buildings erected
New York reported the construction of
flre-reslstlng buildings at a cost of $181,
918.4J7; Chicago was second, with a cost of
$79,106,500; Brooklyn third, $54,658,721; Phila
delphia- fourth, $42,570,770; St. Louis,, fifth,
$22,42,929, and San Francisco sixth, $13,124,
987. The average cost of new fire-reslstlna-
bulldings in the fifteen cities reporting the
greatest cost for this class ranged from
$3,151 in Philadelphia to $GS.3S4 in New York
In new brick buildings Brooklyn was sec

Devotes' Good Share of Kearney
Speech to This Paper.
KEARNEY, Neb.. July 15. (Special Tele
gram.) Before an audience of 800 people,
largely women. William J. Bryan spoke
tonight at the opera house In this city.
Judge W. D. Oldham Introduced the speaker
In a very flattering manner.
Mr. Tlryan's opening remarks were a
sharp criticism of the Omaha World-Herald.
Reviewing his presidential campaigns,
he strongly defended his different . para
mount Issues. He stated that he had re
fused to discuss county option when It was
put up to him at the last legislature be
cause this Issue was not contained In the
platform upon which the democratic legis
lators were sleeted.
Mr. Bryan snok cf his great desire for
party harmony, his interest In the party
and that he would be the last one to create
mutiny within the ranks. He said he was
not willing, though, to see the democratic
party debauched and demoralised by the
brewories and liquor Interests,
Speaking of his late canvas among the
state representatives and senators, Mr,
Brysn said Uiatt he results he got and the
pledges he received were sufficient to call
a speolal session and were he governor
he would not have hosltated to call this
speolal seslon and adopt the Initiative end
referendum. Further he said that he was
growing tired of the Idea that a man was
rot In good standing In the democratlo
party unles he wabbled when he walked.
He is in favor of tho democratlo party
taking a stand on the liquor question from
which it can defend Itself, and that It
could not offer any defense when stand
Ink out against county option.
At the close of his a dress Mr. Bryan
stated that he hoped to win the flsht at
the state convention at Grand Island to get
county option placed In the democratlo
party piaiiorm. He said that he did not
know how many coun-titss were with him,
but he did know that Lancaster countv
would stand solid for county option.
