"It was Mr. Bryan who achieved the Greatest
triumph within his party when. In the State
Conventl m two years ago. by common consent,
he took tho leadership. It was hewbo advised
bis followers tn endorse the candidacy of Silas
A. Ilolcomb, who had boen nominated by the
Populists of Nebraska for tho office of
Governor. It was alo upon Mr. Hryan'a
recommendation that the same Convention en
dorsed the candtdaoy of other men on the
Populist ticket. What ho did then gave Ne
braska the first Populist Onvernor and worked
the defeat of the Republicans, the eole
object sought by Mr. Dryan and bla
followers. Tho consistent course of Mr.
Bryan as a sliver advocate and tho
klodlr feeling he baa all along, as a Democrat,
erlrred for the Populists ot Nebraska, haa
t made him many frlonda In the Populist party
thro.lhout the West. Should be be nominated
by the Ch cago Convention for the Presidency
he would more than any other Western man
draw support from the Populist organization."

Tork City aa Vaaat.
New Tork eltr Is to suffer for the hard time
among the farmers np tho fitato. Ho said
Martin neermanoe of PoughVeepsle. a mem
ber of the Blate Board fo the Bquallxatlon of
Taxation, whtoh met with the Now York Tax
Commissioners yesterday In the annual squab
ble over the assessment of the city for Htate
taxes. Edward L. Adams of Klmlra and
Rollln I Jenkins of Port Henry are tho other
members of the Stnto Board.
President Barker of tho local Board showed
that the city paid to the 8 la to this year $0,
402.000.02, based on Its land talues. and
that this is nbout half of the whole Bute tax.
This Is in addition to tho State tax on corpora
tions, which Is collected dlreotty by the State,
although made available by tha work of this
city's Tax Commissioners.
Last year the State Board added about $70..
000.000 to tho city's rest estate valuation, a
decrease of 880.000.000 from what it added it
1801. Thu Increase of $80,000,000 In the real
estate valuations of this city this year plonses
the Stale men immensely, for tho moio the
city valuation Is the less that of the "hay
jeod" districts will be, and this city will more
than etcr have to pay tBe fiddler.
Mr. Barkrr contended that It eras most un
fair to this city to raise the real estate valua
tion, in the country land is assessed at ono
thlrd of It tnluo. but In this, city. In order to
keep down the tax rate. It It assessed at nearly
00 per cent, Tho increase In tills year's city's
Btate tax waa $.847,tlD0.7fl, and whllo a
large part of that was due to the transfer to
the State ot the care ot the insane, the lnorease
was unjustly Inrgc.
Mr. Heermanre for the Statsi Board said that
he did not think Now York oity'a real estate
was assessed to tho full limit of 00 per cent.
Besides, tha farmers up tho Stabs wore poor,
their farms were Cepreclntlng in value, and
they really could not afford to pay the tax.
Therefore, as New York city is rich and power
ful, It will have to "glvo up."
Tho Board will meet In Albany tn September
and decide upon the asossmenta of the several
counties for rtato tax.

Any person In the Qutncy district who was
sufficiently disengaged from the terrestrial
struggle with his local environment to cast hi
eyes skyward about 4 P. M. last Monday might
have seen a procession of truant kites carrying
a mile of street wlro until checked by the latter
catching In the trees, whore they stopped and
rcmalued suspended, like buoys over a wreck, to
Indicate whero the Instrument they ware sup
porting had lodged.
An experiment originally In aerostatics, by
the breakage of the wire, became converted
Into one In what Professor Langley terms,
aoro-dramlca, or aerial travel. A letter received
from tbe proprietor, that Indefatigable meteor
ologist of the upper air, Mr. Lawrence Rotoh,
Informs us that ho was endentorlng to fly his
meteorograph to a height hitherto unattalnod
by any scries nf kites, and that after reaching a
vertical height of 3,300 feet above the summit
of Blue Hill tho wire broke at a splice and
away went tbe whole show, and here comes In
an Important lesson gratuitously afforded by
the accident. The kites and Instrnment gilded
away through the air for about three or tour
miles and woro finally recovered with th deli
cate meteorograph quite unharmed andexhlb
ltlnr. In the words of Mr. Rotoh, a magnlfloenl
record on the paper drum of conditions encoun
tered nt Its various altitudes.
Magnify the dimensions of the Instrnment to
those of a man and Increase those of the kites
or aeroplanes In like proportion, and we hate
here, besides a valuable meteorological record,
distinct proof or the powerof aeroplanes merely
drifting with the wind and with neither motive
apparatus nor Intelligent supervision, to safely
carry heavy objects through the air and land
them without damago on terra flrnin. The
publlo Is notorious ror Its Impatience regarding
thu value of a scientific research which It can
not immediately convert Into eolld caah.
Tno advent ot tho flying machine will sound
the death knell ot the nmqultous bike. Who
will be content to crawl on a wheel when he can
soar like the albatross? And yet the experi
ments In norostatlou and aerial meteorology by
which alone flying will be rendered an exact
solenco are subjected to the 'out bono' clamor
and balf-contemptunua wonder or persona who
would be tbe first to avail or the advantages
alone secured bv means nf such persistent ef
forts to grapple with the secrets ot nature.
Kites are now rapidly displacing balloon a
agents ot elevation, and will not oulr supersede
the latter In thecaptho form for military reoon
nnlssanco, vertical photography, and high-level
meteorology , but slnco the abandonment of mo
tive balloons, following tho Into Prof, Helm
holtz's proot or their incnpaclty to travel more
than twenty miles an hour, aro everywhere
rrrognl7ed as the basis ot tho flying machine ot
Their trials In different forms and the result
ing angles of fliebt and proofsof stability enable
us to ascertain thu best form of aeroplane with
which to construct our flying machine, while
the records of wind telocltt and temperature
obtained by their means and tbtlrnwn behavior
at different levels will enablo us to cope with
tho aerial ocean much as themarlnerdeala with
its marine counterpart. In this way Mr. Har-

which offers a readily recognlzecl ralson UVtro

The charges on which the meeting ruled are
not officially set forth, but It Is generally under
stood thnt they are practically tbe same which
have been talked about both In this country and
England for the past year or more, Btar ath
letes without any ostensible means of making
ends meet have been touring Great llrltaln with
the consistency of a professional cycling team
doing the circuit In thla oountrr. They were
not officially aupposed to either ask fororacoapt
travelling and living expenses, and the censors
of thesport were so busy throwing mud at Amerl
an amateurs that they apparently had no time
to look Into affairs In their own territory, Tho
soandal attained such proportions, however,
that some English nowspapars grew tired of tha
hypocrisy of those who were holding up Ilrlt
lsh amateurism as a mirror for "crooked
Yankees," and they came out In such unmistak
able terms that tbe officials were fairly cor.
neted. In discussing the latest phase of tbe
scandal London tymiMrn; L'e or July 1 says;
"For some tlmo past It baa been demanded on
all sides that tbe association should arouse It

who hnve been boldlnir out tempting baits
to the disqualified men are not also cnued over
the roals. The aciiulccence of tin su clubs In
tho breaking of tho rules bus brought the sport
Into such looso order that tt Is nut surprising to
find men careless as to compliance with the A.
A. A. reo.ulremcnts,whlle little troubles as to
expenses could be got over without tbe least
"Tbe suspended persons are Indeed the scape
gnats of a rotten state ot affairs In athletics.
Hy the decline of professional sport clubs have
been foisted on tbe A. A. A. which are amateur
(save the mark) In character simply because It
Is unite impossible to 1 xist under any other con
ditions. Mo far from having any ay mpatby with
amateurism, some of tbo present-day runnera
could hardly give a seoslblo plea in ita favor;
and, undoubtedly. If only a strong movement
against the A. A. A. could be aet 011 root to-morrow
a fair section of the Urltl-h clubs would be
plea.cd to throw off the restrictions which tbey
now hate to bear.
" bile amateurism it oonducted on perfect
lines there la not much gate money In tho busi
ness, if the men who have been taken off the

pearance lhe crowd demands flrat-rlats men,
and It they are no longer to have tbem goud-by
to big balances. Only a tew days hate to pass
before et Idem e or this fact will be obtained.
"The action of the committee Is. In some re
aprcta. not as clear aa II might be. It Is laid
down In the A. A. A. laws 'that a competitor who
a-ks fur or receltes expenses ceaaea to be an
amateur.' I onsequentl), upon admission of
euch an ofTuioe a deliuiiuent can only be re
garded by tbe A. A. A. as a profra"lonat, and. as
such. Is hardly a subject upon whom suspension
can logically be Inflicted. Jsor would It appear
that such a person could be again admitted to
thu amateur ranks; ror under the rules rein
statement is possible only tor those who have
broken the laws In Ignorance Notwithstand
ing theso tacts the houthern Committee an
nounce that the terms or suspension will be
fixed by the denernl Committee on July 25,
Probably by that time sumo of tbe men will
have decided to trouble tbe A. A- A. no further
in the matter.
"As theso suspensions are the work of the
Southern ( eimmtliee alone, and are presumably
only for offences committed In the southern
district, it may be that similar revelations will
be the outcome of tho next eommltteo meeting
of tbe Northern Counties' Athletic Association,
which It Is rumored Is acting 111 concert with
the southern Committee."
The suspended athletes eeemtotakcapecnllar

that tbo charges aro true, but resent the fact
thnt they are singled nut for discipline while
