W. J. Bryan vir-d Thursday with
six younger orators of the Crelghton
College of Law, and himself admitted
that they did better than he had
done at their age.
It' was the annual good-fellowship
banquet of the college, attended by
members of the faculty, alumni and
students, by judges, prominent law-
yers. editors, a goodly company that .
filled the Henshaw
.11 nln. '
It was a good-fellowship banquet In
more than nam, allege parodies on
popular songs were sung between courses.
pennants and college colors were flying.
The menu and program rejected the col
lege spirit, being printed In the form and
wording of a legal brief and bill of par
ticulars. Each courso on the menu was
garnished with a quotation from some
legal tome and each speaker s name was
adorned with a legend from legal lore.
Bryan Joins la Soasj.
Mr. Bryan Joined In singing the college
parodies. He applauded the addresses
of the six young orators who preceded
him. nodding his head vigorously and
whispering his appreciation to Dr. Allison
and J. A. C. Kennedy, who sat near him.
He paid a glowing tribute to Count
Crelghton and, finally, in the latter part
of his speech he became a pedagogue and
told the students the secrets of successful
public speaking.
Harry E. Ganti was toastmaster and
told some stories which Mr. Bryan con
fessed were new even to him and which
he would "add to his list."
For the first time at a Crelghton good-
fellowship banquet a woman was among
the speakers. She was Miss Gladys
Shamp. and her address on "Woman's
Place In the Law" was witty.
The toastmaster declared that "better
than the biggest fees of the lawyer Is
the fee-male of our species," and Miss
Shamp reparteed by declaring that she
hoped to have more substantial fees than
Toasts of Evening;.
Eugene M. Clennon spoke on "The Law
yer as a Prosecutor;" Robert MtcOuiggan
on "The Lawyer In Court;" Preston T.
McAvoy on "The Lawyer as a Legisla
tor," and Morgan J. Doyle on "The Law
yer In the Community."
Mr. Doyle's speech was more In the
nature of a valedictory for the senior
class, which, he loyally Insisted, Is not
only the biggest, but by all odds the most
capable that has ever graduated from
Crelghton College of Law. And so say
ing, Mr. Doyle looked fearlessly Into the
faces of doiens of alumni, not one of
whom disputed him. , .
Mr. Bryan expressed amazement that
six such good orators oould be found In
one college.
"Why," ha said, "I was M year old
before I dared venture to tell a story in
a speech, for fear I would lose the thread
of my argument, especially If they
laughed and even more If they didn't."
He referred to his friendship with Count
Crelghton. "which dated back to twenty
years ago, when I first began running for
the presidency."
Bis Best Introduction.
Speaking of introductions he said the
test he bad ever had was at a place
called Buckhorn Schoolhouse. III., when
he waa a young lawyer. An Irishman,
named Flynn. was to introduce him and,
though Bryan had dictated an Introduc
tion which would advertise his law of
fice In the neighboring town, Flynn forgot
It and 'merely announced "Mtsther
O' Bryan will now speak "
Tha old story of his Lincoln Introduc
tion he told again.
"I arrived In Lincoln la October, 1877,"
he said. "There was no political cam
paign that year, so I had to get along
as well as possible without making any
speeches. But the next year I waa at it
before the frost was out of the ground.
I made fifty speeches and in each one I
told the. people why the republican can
didate should not be elected governor. I
thought I made It so plain that they
couldn't go wrong, but they went ahead
and elected him anyway by 28,00) majority.
A short time afterward I waa to, speak at
a meeting where he presided. I hoped
there would be no embarrassment for, I
reasoned, he must feel some resentment
against a man who had spoken so pro
fusely against him. Just before my turn
came he approached me on the platform
and said, 'Mr. Bryan, do you speak or
slngT lie hadn't even heard of me."
In his remarks on public speaking, he
declared clearness of statement, conden
sation, belief In your cause, apt illustra
tion, dramatic question and the character
of the orator are six most Important
Thomas Jefferson's supposedly logical
and concise Declaration of Independence
isn't flawless, for Mr. Brayn pointed out
that "all truths are self-evident, not only
'certain truths' as Jefferson said."
"The co-operative function of govern
ment will Increase by big strides from
now on and the coercive will diminish,"
he declared and he cited the great in
crease In municipal ownership and government-owned
institutions as indications
of this.
Nation's Opportaalty.
He referred in closing to the European
war and said that this nation has the
greatest opportunity ever possessed by a
nation to do gooj.
"As the wise men of the east went to
Bethlehem bearing precious gifts," he
said, "so the wise men of the west can
now go to the warring nations and offer
them a part of the money that they
want us to spend on preparing new en
gines of destruction and use this money
to promote peace, fellowship, friendship,
lasting brotherhood.

dence that Daniels. Mary'a manager,
threatened Tollock. Mary faints on the
stand and again goes Insane when a
policeman otters her whisky.
(Continued From Testerday.)
"Well. I-I sent for Mr. Langdon." said
Daniels nervously, "and he came, in the
meantime we had ' given the regular
watchman knockout drops and left him in
a corner of the balcony, and Shale took
his place. When Mr. Iiongdon was leav
ing I called this supposed watchman and,
acting on Dave's Instructions, told him
to show Mr. Langdon out 'ay the stage
door. But I tell you" his voice rose sud
denly to a liU-h, shrill note of hysterical
emphasis "I tell you I knew nothing of
that open trap door In the stage. I
thought ho waa going to taire him right
! out of the theater. And when I heard
Mr. Langdon's cry I-I was too horrified
to move for a minute. Then I rushed
down and turned on the stago lights."
"Will you tell us what you saw?"
"I saw Mr. Iangdon hanging to the
edgo of an open trap that led down some
thirty feet to the cement cellar below,
land Shale standing to one side, with a
blackjack In his hand. I thought he was
going to hit Langdon, and I snatched It
away from him and dragged Langdon
back upon the stage. The very first
words he said made me realise he didn't
know the real reason of that open trap,
so I hid the blackjack behind me and
took Mr. Langdon to the door myself and
saw him safely away."
"Did you see Mr. Pollock again that
"Yes. When I got back to the stage
I found him there denouncing Shale for
having failed to do his part, and when I
asked him If he had meant murder, he
said, 'Yes! I meant to have him killed
through an apparent accident. What la
more, I tell you here and now, that I'll
kill Mary Page and I II kill myself, be
fore Langdon shall win her!' That's what
Dave Pollock said, and that's what I
thought he had done that night. I
swear I didn't go Into that room! But
I heard them quarrel, and I heard tha
scream and the shot. And I thought he'd
done it and I ran away, in sheer horror
that's all! My God! You must believe
me. It's true that I quarreled with Dave
Pollock, not once, but many times. It's
true that he didn't play fair with me, but
can't you sea that- I had everything to
lose and nothing to gain by hie death I
It's meant ruin to me and ruin to my
wife and little girl."
His voice broke pitifully over tha last
words. Leaning forward, he burled his
face in his shaking hands, waiting- for
the next question. But it didn't come.
That tragio outburst had carried- con
viction, not merely to Langdon but to
everyone m the room, and whatever
shadows of suspicion had hung over Mr.
Daniels faded before the pitiful but In
dubitable veracity of his story. The
mystery, if mystery it was, of David
Pollock's death was still as Impenetrable,
and the cords of the law that for a time
seemed to be loosening from about Mary
Page, had tightened again.
' But to Mary and Langdon that testi
mony of the manager had brought some
thing that for the time at least seemed
greater than the law an understanding
of Mary's heart, vision of what might yet
be if freedom could be won for her.
, It was a strange moment for a great
love to find expression, and a strange
story which had wakened it; and, while
Langdon felt deep in hlsheart that no
words were needed after that-glance of
Mary's he could not forbear following
her to her cell when court had adjourned.
She glanced up at him with sudden shy
ness when he came In, and her hands
ent out waverlngly, but whether to hold
him off or to cling she could not herself
lave told. Langdon had no doubts, how
ever, and caught them close In his warm
grasp and drew her to him In a silence

he whispered unsteadily:
Mary, when Daiilils told of Dave Pol
lock's attempt on my life, your eyes attd
something to me that they have never
snld before. Did you mean It, dear?"
Then, as she clung to him mutely, he
laughed softly and .added:
"I know you did. You can never deny
It now. my darling, and when all this Is
over, I am going to ask you a question--and
and make you put Into word what
your eyes told mo today. May I. Mary?
For an Instant she swayed against him,
her head buried In his shoulder, then with
sad little sob she drew back.
"That's all such a long, long way In
the future, Phil," she said wearily. "Oh.
let's not even think of It. There are eo
many things In between."
'Dear!" ho cried In sudden pity, and
would have taken her In his arms again,
but she shook her head and turned away,
saving unsteadily:

"Of course," he answered quickly, con
