He bears a striking resemblance to Brescol the Bryan Rod through the qty when the head the line carriages reached the Corner Ohio and Meridian streets what promised to be an exciting incident was averted by the genial Bryan. An unusual amount cheering greeted him there and he was bowing Ana smiling when a costless Labouring Man in a Black and red checked shirt displayed More than an Ordinary desire to shake the hand the nebraskan. Somebody yelled quot anarchist quot and the police struggled with the fellow. Or. Bryan showed no fear and called to the patrolmen to let the Man come. They Shook hands and then the worker wanted to Tell just How it was going to happen. Or. Tag Gart with a frown waved to the ready still talking the Man was pushed Back into the crowd. When the speeches were Over at military Park the party notables stepped Down from the platform to take the carriages and mayor Taggart and John i. Martin oversaw the loading As they had done at the grand hotel. Two Happy democrats saw an Opportunity in a Carriage quickly and sat Down with As much dignity As the big Fellows. Taggart quot caught quot in a fifty. Quot get out there you Don t belong there quot he shouted at them. They did not move. Thereupon the mayor grabbed them one at a time and uttering quot get out Here quot threw them out. Just before the Bryan contingent reached the Federal building a Man dressed in his sunday Best appeared with a child his shoulder. The child was frantically waving a Small Flag. As the carriages Caine opposite them one the frequent halts occurred. Seeing his Opportunity the Man crowded Forward and the child reached out the Flag. With a smile thanks and a few words . Bryan accepted it. The two big men leading the Continentals in the Parade yesterday were a. D. Rinker and Daniel Butcher former patrolmen discharged by mayor tag Gart s Board safety the incident furnished a great Deal amusement to those that recognized them. Rinker is a Democrat and Butcher a Republican. Rode in a Carriage with him and other prominent persons and he secured for her one the Best seats the platform at the Park.

Of governor general Wood in regenerating the administration Justice modifying the procedure in Force and making careful selection members the judiciary.

Georgetown ky., aug 9.�?consultation by attorneys for the defense caused delay at the opening the Powers trial this morning and it was expected they would finish their testimony today. Engineer Coalman was recalled and sex go v. Brown made a statement that the witness was mistaken in calculations that he offered yesterday afternoon because he had understood that the fall the Bullet through Zoebel s body was 17.16 inches alien it was really 13.16 inches. Brown asked that Coalman be allowed to Correct his testimony and calculations. The witness said quot the rate fall from the window Sill to the Hole in the Hack Berry tree is 13.16 an Inch per foot. I made my calculations the drop 17.10 in the distance inches which is equal to a drop 13.16 inches in a foot. The Bullet fired from a window Sill falling at the rate 13.16 inches per foot would have struck the ground Long before it reached the spot where Goebel is supposed to have stood. Dropping at that rate the Bullet after passing through the body would have struck in the Fountain and reversing the conditions and drawing a straight line from the Point exit to the Point a Trence and continuing it to the executive building. It would strike six feet and half an Inch above the Sill the window the Secretary state s office. The Crade from the front Gate to the Steps the Capitol is three fourths an Inch to the theory the expert. Witness continued quot if fired from the second window the Secretary state s office the Bullet dropping at the rate 13-16 Inch per foot would strike the ground sooner than if fired from the Corner Cross examination witness exhibited a profile the surface the ground Over which the Bullet would have passed. From the Corner window the second Rotor the fall per foot would have been Over two inches. The line from the second Story window to the Hole in the Hack Berry tree would have passed fourteen feet five inches above the pavement. The Elevation the line from the window the Secretary state s office al Ove the Nail supposed to indicate a spot where senator Goebel fell was four feet one Inch. The latter Elevation referred to the second window while the Elevation from the first window would be four feet 3-16 inches. Prof. J. J.

Martin in the Parade yesterday. She clerk the supreme court Brown course it is the tendency to belittle the opposition Ahvay. But. Honestly that meeting yesterday was almost a failure. The promoters it Are to be pitied because the state auditor Harti quot i rather think it is All right. I Hope to Jpe re elected. Attorney general quot Daylor quot pshaw that was t any elite. There was t a ery Large crowd in town and not very much chairman Hernly the Republican state Central committee was smiling and Serene last evening after the Bryan demonstration. He had watched the course events during the Day very closely and seemed More than Paul spied with what had happened. The make up the crowds the enthusiasm the Parade and the notification at military Park had All come under his notice and he was ready to express an opinion about the proceedings the whole Day. That Parade was t much said . Hernly. Quot neither in enthusiasm nor numbers did it equal any number similar events Given by the democrats. Ther was not the wild enthusiasm that prevailed four years ago when Bryan was Here. Today Vou could not see men howling with Delight at sight the Man. It seemed to me very slow and tame. There were Lorty four carriages with four people in each Carriage that made 170 people. There seemed to be a respectable number marchers but most them were walking two abreast so As to make As big a show As possible. How our democratic Brothers can find much to rejoice about in today s events i Don t see. Secretary state Union b. Hunt spoke caustically As follows quot i have Road every word the speech and while is is nicely worded it is an insult to the intelligence the people Indiana to have a Young up Start from Nebraska come and Tell us that if he had t been discovered just in time we would have been the subjects an Empire. People instead regarding him As an honest and courageous Man. After Reading that speech will look upon him As a cheap demagogue and a dodger who is afraid to stand the principles enunciated in the platform his party. When lie talks about the Constitution owing the al he does t say. Whether it should follow it to North Carolina and Sou Carolina to Porto Rico and the Philippines. While he is lavish in his expressions sympathy for the Boers i seared in vain for Najiy deep expression sympathy for our soldiers in the Philippines anywhere else if i had had a Haj rid in planning the demonstration i should Call it Charles a. Bookwalter sold quot i have always believed that meetings that sort when wholly successful have Little effect. When Harrison was a candidate for president one year the streets were Black with visiting delegations for Day and Days. Yet Marlon county went democratic along the line he pare yesterday there was no great demonstration. The crowd did not surge and go wild. Here and there was a spasmodic Effort but the whole it did not seem to me to be As enthusiastic As were the Bryan crowds four years ago. Eli Ritter quot i was particularly impressed with the Freedom with which Bryan quoted Abraham Lincoln. That seems to be a great fad with be democrats nowadays. They Sang a different tune in 1861, when they practically acid Lincoln being an imperialist and could say nothing too mean about him. The speech strikes me As being without real Merit As a discussion issues. �?5�? John Ruckelshaus said quot i Haven t read his speech yet. I Don t believe his presence can affect the outcome in Marion county which ought to be Republican by 3,500. As i look at it the oftener Bryan comes to Indianapolis the better for us. John w. Ray says brn s talk in the same line As Daniel w. Voorhees forty years Robert w. Mcbride quot after Reading the speech i can draw but one conclusion which is that after All . Bryan proposes the same final methods disposing the Philippines As the republicans except that he would to to the expense an extra session the Gold democratic leaders were chary about discussing the meeting and Bryan s speech. State chairman Pickens would not talk the Surjeet. Lohn p. Frenzel tomorrow night will occur the appearance in the heavens the August meteorites shooting stars. A Large number them will be seen tonight but the quot real thing quot is booked for tomorrow night. Walter Nordyke Philip Moore and other local Indianapolis men interested in the study the heavens say that shooting stars will be visible throughout August but that they Are not much importance from the astronomers Point View. The radiance Point from which the numbers shooting stars seem to diverge for tomorrow night s Shower. Is in the group known As Perseus. astronomers will not put themselves out to take observations the August meteors but they say that they expect to watch with interest the november showers which were expected last year but failed to show up. Although the shooting stars tomorrow night May not be much interest to scientists they will be Well Worth watching.
