vania nnd member of the Donnclly-ltyan-Guffoy
triumvirate that so Ions
controlled the organization of that
party In the State, ended his life Into
thl afternoon In his oflloc In the Land
Tltlo and Trust Uulldlng by shooting
himself will a pistol.
Tho examination of the pistol sb .us
that tho first cartridge did not explode
when he pulled the trigger. The second
bullet lodged In his lirnln.
Hyan was hopelessly Involved finan
cially, and from great wealth It Is un
derstood that through unfortunate In
vestments ho had become prnrtlrnlly
penniless, a year ago urenminmi at
i.oney lainuu oilmen ana wiai loss w.n i
severely felt by him. This season hit
built another amusement resort' on tho
slto of the old Point Ilreeze racetrack,

was a meeting scheduled for this eve

were to gather and consider plans for u
James W. Guffey, tho former Demo

Guffey's money that hp began business.
After he hnd amassed a fortune Hyan
began to Invest In local traction securi

Wldeners and the late George D.
Wldenor gavo him tho concessions at
all of- tho parks on the lines of tho
Philadelphia Ilapld Transit Company.
He built Willow Grove, one of the most
nttractlve resorts In the city. He turned
to Chestnut Hill nnd constructed a re

All of them proved Immensely profit
able nnd he organized tin-in Into stock
companies, formed the syndicate that
underwrote them and sold the stock, re
taining enough for himself to make him
Independent for life, With the sucivm
he achieved here he branched out In
other cities and hp Invested In Coney
His financial enterprises having be
come Involved, something hnd to be
done to protect not only the creditors
but those who were Interested with him.
It was learned from an attorney who
represents one of the creditors that they
have suspected there were Irregulari
ties In the management of the enter
prises with which Ityan was connected
nnd that the meeting for to-day was
called to see whether or not some of the
parties who were Interested could not
arrange matters so that Kyan's fortune
might be rehabilitated and that their
money might be saved.
Ryan lived with his wife on his hand
some estate facing York road, near
Ashburno road. Melrose. With the ex
ception of the servants, Mrs. Ityan was
alone In the house when the news of
the tragedy was conveyed to her by
friends. It was broken as gently as
possible, but the shock was too great
and she collapsed. A physician was
summoned, and under his orders no one
was permitted to sen her except her
brother and one or two Intimate friends.
Mr. Walsh, Mrs. Ryan's brother, said
he knew of absolutely no reason that
ihls brother-in-law should have taken
his own life. He said Mr. Ryan was
well and apparently in the best of spir
its when ho left home to go to hh
"I am confident." said Mr. Walsh,
"that his business affairs and finances
nre In splendid shape. Ills senson at
both Willow Grove and Point Hree.o
parks was most successful. He had told
me that Willow Grove hail the best sea
son In Its history nnd that the Point
Ilreeze venture had proed profitable
beyond his expectations."

PUBLIC COAL LAUDS LEASED.

Wasihnoton, Oct. 6. An Important
departure from tho usual policy In re
Kurd to public lands la the leasing of
2,480 ucres of coal lands at Lander,
Wyo., to the Owl Creek Coal Company
by tho Federal Government. This Is
said to be tho first actual lease of mln

Government to Individuals and fore
shadows a practice that may be adopted
extensively In the future.
The lease, as approved by Secretary
Klshor of the Interior Department gives
the bureau of mines absolute control
over tho operation of the mine as to the
methods of mining and the provisions
for Its safety. Tho lease proper Is for

Washington, Oct. 6. American mini
mi Instruments of all kinds have found
a s.ile In almost every quarter of tho
world, according to a monograph, "I-or-i-lgn
Trade In Musical Instruments,"
which will soon be Issued by the bureau
of foreign and domestic commerce of the
Department of Commerce and Labor.
About $1, 300,000 worth of American
pianos were sold abroad In 1911. Canada
taking tin- largest share. In other
countries they malntnln a steady sale,
but meet strong competition from Eu
ropean, particularly German. Instru
ments. In China nnd the Orient generally the
feature that blocks the sale of Ameri
can as well as European Instruments Is
that the Oriental races have not yet
taken a liking for Western music. This,
howexer. does not apply to phono
graphs, which are easily adapted to
M-Iectlons In any language, and they
nre consequently very popular, espe
cially In China. Shopkeepers there were
quick to recognize the value of the pho
nograph as a crowd gatherer and now
many shops have n phonograph playing
In front all day long.
American organs find one of their
best markets In Australia nnd a larg"
number are nlso sold In Germany. Th-j
fnlted Kingdom was once the Hold for
a thriving sale in these instruments, mu
the coming or the cheap piano and mo
nhonocraiih has diminished the demand
n n,r.:i wrtlnn until the irnile Is In-
ronsl.lni ilile. There Is still n uood de-
mnnd among the Hner farmers In South

Africa and nlso In Canada, but In both
places the piano Is encroaching on the
Largo numbers of American phono
graphs go t" the Latin American coun
tries, where they are immensely popu
lar. ' This Is especially true of Mexico,
because of the many Isolated mining
camps and ranches.

Campaign Document Asserts
That Two Presidents Ma
BRING IN SHERMAN'S NAME
Vice-President's Brothers Saved
$"M)00 a Year by Using
Saccharin, Is Charge.
Tho charge that the pure food law,
"as modified by the executive orders of
President Roosevelt and President Taft,
is devoted almost exclusively to tho
protection of the pocketbook of tho
producer, showing the triumph of mer
cenary interests over tho welfare of the
public," is made In a Democratic cam
paign pamphlet to bo distributed to
day by tho bureau of health conserva
tion of tho Woman's National Wilson
nnd Marshall Organization.
With the pamphlet goes the word of
Dr. Harvey W. Wiley that this Is "tho
most important campaign document yet
Issued by the Domocratlc National Com
mittee." Dr. Wiley Is president of tho
Democratic health conservation com
mittee. He tins been nt work for some
time on what was to be an "exposure"
of the pure food law administration,
but the pamphlet that goes out to-day
Is not signed. It Includes an appeal
for votes by Mrs. J. Horden Harrlman,
president of the woman's Wilson nnd
In tho pamphlet It Is alleged that "a
firm financially profiting by the use of
saccharin In foods was the brothers of
.lames S. Sherman." now Vice-President
of tho United States. Mr. Sherman,
then a Congressman, according to tho
pamphlet, called at the White House
with the representatives of Curtlco
liros. and Williams Bros., largo
users of benzonte of soda, and demanded
of President Roosevelt that the activi
ties of the bureau of chemistry ceuso.
Rays the pamphlet:
They were Interested beausi they were
making money by tha use of benroate of
soda and saccharin, whtch enabled them
to muke a cheaper product than their
competitors. Mr. Sherman ns a clincher
to I1I1 argument informed President
Roosevelt that "his firm" hud saved over
11.000 the previous year by using sac
charin Instead of sugar! Thus, for 14.000
the use of saccharin, a fraud and an In
Jury, was permitted to go on undisturbed
for four long years. For It was by this
direct appeal to President Roosevelt, and
by an anneal to the Secretary of the De
partment of Agriculture, over the heud of
the Uureau of. Chemistry, that the food
and drug act decision against these chemi
cals nan set aside and an executive order,
wholly Illegal and contrary to the express
provisions of the law, was substituted es
tablishing thn Remsen lo.ird and demand
ing that all matters referred to the board
should be taken out of further danger of
prosecution. This tcave the adulterators
and mlsbranders free rln to continue
their nefarious traffic until the report of
that board. This board validated the use
of benzoate. of soda to the triumph of the
poekatliook of the producer over the
stomach of the consumer.
It Is nlso charged that the present en
forcement of the meat laws "Is a na
tional scandal of no less proportions
than the conditions portrayed by Cpton
Sinclair In 'The Jungle.'" The Republi
can Administrations ure censured for
validating the use of sodium sulphite.
whoso use In "embalming" beef for
Spanish war soldiers figured In a na
tlonal scandal. Says the pamphlet:
nt Taft lias not only retained
. set up In violation of the law,
but has et.-nuVl In direction to Inter
"to which had not been covered by the
llnriil tlt fiilmlnlfttiMtlnn lie hrtM eVin

So powerful are the means at the hands
of tlie.e "Invisible, governors" of the
totintry. It Is reported that fabulous hums
have been spent in defending such suits
against food debasers as the Department
of Agriculture and tlm Itcmsen board
have finally permitted to be brought. And
when the courts have decided in favor
of the consumer, In many Instances ap
