His Train Delayed a Short While by
an Accident to loco
motive. WASHINGTON, Sept. 22. President
Roosevelt and party arrived here over
the Pennsylvania railroad from OyBter
Bay at C:52 p. m. The President's train
was delayed about thirty-six minutes by
an accident to the rear drive .wheel of
the locomotive as It entered the tunnel
at Baltimore. The engine was imme
diately detached' and another procured
to pull the train to Washington. The
accident caused no damage to tho train.
Tiro of Rear Driver Breaks.
' Fortunately the train was proceeding
at a slow rate of speeed when the acci
dent occurred, or It might have been
more serious. It was making more1 than
thirty-five miles an hour, when In
some unaccountable, manner the tire
of the rear drive wheel on the left
side of the engine broke and curled off.
One end of It protruded upward and
jammed through the boiler of the en
gine, causing an almost Immediate shut
ting off of the steam.
Brought to a Stop.
Engineer Weatherby put on the air
brakes and tho train came to a stop.
A request was sent to the yard for an
other engine. After a halfx hour's de-.
lay another engine wa9 attaohed to the'
train and it proceeded to Washington.
Cause of Break.
The cause of the tire breaking, ac
cording to the railway officials, was
quite Inexplicable, The engine, just be
fore leaving Philadelphia, had been
thoroughly tested. The President and
his party took the matter very coolly.
Today's accident Is said to be the
first which happened to a train on which
President has traveled during his ad
ministration. Given Cordial Welcome.
Tho President was given a cordial
welcome home by a large crowd of peo
ple as he came through the train shed
and walked out to the street, where his
carriage was waiting. The crowd lined
both sides of Sixth street for a long
llrno before the train arrived, and when
he made his appearance and steppe'd In

defeated. Tho amendment providing for
a number of changes In tho official titles
of the officers of tho sovereign grand lodgo

Tho sovereign grand lodgo of Odd Fol
lows has reconsldored Its action desig
nating "Washington, D. C, as tho meeting
place for next year's session By a unani
mous voto Philadelphia was Bclectcd In

assigned for the change. One was that
"Washington, with a population of 278,000
and only 1GS0 Odd Follows in tho District
of Columbia, had not a largo enough
membership to Justify tho governing body
in deciding lo be Its guests, with tho ne
cessary expenses attached to the reception
of so many visitors. Tho other rea-son
was that Philadelphia, with a population
of 1.203,700 people. Is tho motropolis of a
Stalo Jurisdiction that has 112,347 Odd Fel
lows, the largest membership of any
State, and Is a llttlo farther away than
Washington from Baltimore, where tho

German steamer Erlcka, which the local
authorities would not allow to leave
' until given assurance that no attempt
would be made to enter Port Arthur.
The Erlcka sails at daylight, and Japan
Is given as her destination, but It Is
believed that she will ultimately make
for Port Arthur, where the Russians
are offering stupendous Inducements for
the delivery of coal. S. Davidson, an
American merchant who had a Rus
sian coal contract and was ordered to
leave Port Arthur on February 15 last,
Is now nt Tslng Tau. He tells the As
sociated Press correspondent that when
he left there was less than 2000 tons of
coal there. '
On account of the Russian warships
having been compelled to keep up full
steam day and night for nearly eight
months, and the enormous quantities
of fuel required for the water-condensing
plant, there must be a coal
famine there now unless more coal has
The Japanese have cut oft the water

lng. But one alteration was made. ttjf .- .
Henry N. Standlsh was defeated and D. Wn L, '
N. Miller, a pliant tool of the Smootltes Hi'' (liifl
a man 'who publicly declared a few Hi' ' iifl
days ago that the support of the new M Li;' t HH
party is without prlnclple was noml- jnj R ('
noted for County Commissioner. j
Many Delegates Helpless. B M ! JH
Tho delegates In the convention who 1' "j JA
had not been Smootized were as help- Bj : U ' IH
less In the clutches of the ecclesiastical H , I; Hi ! biH
politicians of the dominant church as M; "
a mouse "would be In the claws of a
playful kitten. V'i iH
It was one of the most flagrant dls- !, ( 'iH
plays of apostolic power ever witnessed t ,
one of the things which made the ; i 1
American sentiment crystallze around J j ilkV
tho new party which, within a week, i
made the American party a real force. I t ,:, j
Watched, by Angus Cannon. ttjjy :
Former President Angus M. Cannon. Hn
stern aud commanding, occupied a place m? i bl
of vantage with the delegates from his mt I
district, and watched with Jealous eye Y&i' .IH
every movement. Others of less con- jwilrTfliw kkl
splcuous type occupied many of the Hu-rr? 'iH
weats or moved about tho main floor Hn, -rVStS
suggesting and directing the moves M,-"- AV JJJH
made as a skilled player would aid a By Ai liM
novice on a checker board. R j- JVv H
Men sat in the Theater, duly ac- ra j , h
credited delegates, but undeniably were I , lhhfl
"helpless pieces of the game" they I V 'ikkV
played. The outrage of the convention j ;
was when the friends of Sheriff Frank I j;1,
C. Emery shut out thOEe who were to Qj f DH
nominate the other candidates for fi ilH
Sheriff. Not a name was presented but I ; J iakV
Emery's, and this work was such a H ' ) kkV
palpable fraud that a mighty roar was U "
made when the Sheriff was declared the Nil 1 kH
nominee. UBih 1 kH
Christensen Wins. HI ,
The contest between Christensen and Hi ft kkfl
Irvine was a spirited one, and appeared IU j
to be a fair deal, there being no church Kg b : ' pH
fight on either. Christensen won by a BR '' ' kH
neck, Hf pH
Some sop was then thrown to the Iff!'' kH
non-Mormon members of the conven- Bh '; ikkV
Hon, but on analysis It Is found that IK , , HkH
neither of the offices for which the HU 1 kV
Gentiles were nominated, were ad- M (l i 1 ikH
vantageous. IH 'kkV
Auditor Fisher, non-Mormon, was a Ht ij!'
candidate lor a second term. He had Dnj;
no opposition. His office Is wholly Kip1': 'IkH
clerical. Percy O. Perkins had a clean Hf "IkH
walk-away for Recorder, and his office, m V
too, Is a clerkship. W. O. Carbls, for UF li 'jkkV
Treasurer, Is asking for a second term. Hrii ' kkkl
The office in no sense Is admlnlstra- Ki r jkH
tlve. It is under the control of the Hp !
uouniy commissioners, anu uy us nu- IE" 'iifl
lure Involves nothing that would be of If'-'.' ' IJH
advantage to the politicians of the I fj" 'r 'IH
priesthood. I til
A Tool to. Smoot, I jH
One of the nominees for Commissioner jj!
is a Gentile, but of the "Jack Mormon" L,,
type. Two tools of Smoot will sit with i ii( IH
him If the people ratify the convention's IH
work, though. Surveyor Swenson Is a , I I jH
non-Mormon, but his office is not of j ! :!. IH
such character as to be of service to I V,
the church politicians. The entire work
of the ticket-making was done as the J ,H
plans developed yesterday, with con- 1, 1 1! lH
sumate, skill and with dragnet thor- 'H
cughne'ss. It was po palpably Smootized , J 'H
that scores of men who sat as mute I C jH
spectators to the things that were car- II 1 iH
rled on, went away heart-sick and dls- i y : IH
gusted. , ;H
Another Breach of Faith. IF
Many declared it was a breach of (ill' 'iiil
faith with them; that they had been IPHj.1 jH
promised alter the Stato convention
that Smootized Blates would not be I iH
offered again; that there should be, ' ,,y ifl
therefore, no priestly Interference. I ji il
They hod hoped to feel free to reason li f: il
with the party organization throughout U
the campaign, but the brazon offensive- n ,;
ness of the Anderson-Sutherland-Cal- H ll
lister crowd was loo much. I , jflH
The American party was made many ; (
converts by the domineering of yester- J-,jj9 .
day's convention. if , H
Morning Session. K Jj ' .H
The Republican county convention K IrV 'i '
was called to ordor at 11:10 o'clock by. 1? .
County Chairman J. U. Eldredge, Jr., 'M
who Introduced Secretary of Stato J-ivj
James T. Hammond as temporary chair- ' : 1 ' tB

"The campaign should be entered JB fj, pppa
