Coun., ami W. 0. Sullivan of this city
. appeared for the stove company,
r Tho proceedings were begun with a
request by Mr. bullivan for a postpone-

vigorously opposed by Judge Parker,

Mr. Davenport rend at length from the

their replies he contended that there had
boon an intentional incitement to t!iei
labor unions to action in contempt of

law had been misstated for this purpose.
Judge Parker suggested, if given an
opportunity now, Mr. Mitchell could

(for the production of the rights of the
(people each government to act within
jits constitutional sphere. Our platform
demands that Federal legislation be ndd
d to, not substituted for, State legisla
tion. ! Tho predatory corporations have taken
'advantage of the dual character of our
iGovernincnt and have tried to hide bo
Ihlnd Stato rights when prosecuted in the
-.Federal courts and behind tho Interstate
commerce clause of the Constitution when
iprosecutcd in the Stato courts.
I There In no twilight zone between tho
Nation and the Stato in which the cx
i jploltlng Intcrciit3 can tnko refuge from
jooth. There is no neutral ground where.
ibeyond tho Jurisdiction of either sover
eignty, tho plunderers of tho public can

tion confines its activities to the State in
twhich it was created, it is subject to
jStato regulation only; but as noon as it

li toctlon of tho public.
If Our platform outlines the regulation
I deemed necessary, nnd tho regulation is
J specifically sot forth In order that our
ft opponents may not be able to scare the
I public by predicting hurtful legislation. J
l Our platform, unlike tho Republican plat-
form, says what it means and means only.
.what it says.
I A distinction Is drawn between tho rall-
h roads and other corporations. Tho nill-
II road, being a fiuasl-publlu corporation,
If nnd, as such, being- permitted to exorcise
n. part of the sovereignty of the state.
is subject to regulation at the hands of
; 1)Oth tho nation and the state, but this
I regulation Is intended, not to cripple the.
f railroads, but to Increase their efficiency.
H Tho people at large aro as much inter-
( csted as the stockholders aro in tho suc
cessful operation of the railroads. Their
own pecuniary Interests as well as their
sonso of Justice would restrain them from
doing anything that would Impair the
road or reduce its efficiency. The trav
eling public is vitally interested in the
payment of wnces sufficient to command
the most Intelllcent service, for Hfo as
well as property is in tho hands of those
who operate tho trains. guard the
switches, and keep the track in repair.
Tho Democratic party would distinguish
between those railroad owners, directors
and managers who. recognizing their ob
ligation to tho public, earn their salaries
by conscientious devotion to the work en-
! trusted to them, and those unscrupulous
! "Napoleons of Finance" who use railroads
' us more pawns in a great gambling game
: without regard to the rights of employees
, or to the Interests of tho patrons. It is
i in the Interest of honest railroading and
P legitimate Investment thnt tho Democratic
I party seeks to ascortaln the present value
E of tho railroad properties and to prevent
I for the future the watering of stock and
I the issue of fictitious capitalization; and
I it Is In the interest, of both the lallroads
I and tho public that, it seeks only such
I reductions In transportation rates nB can
be made without wage reduction, without
I deterioration in tho service and without
t injustice to legitimate Investments. The
P Domocmtlc party insists that In the mnt-
! ter of regulaton of railroads both the
J', state governments nnd the. federal gov-
j eminent shall act up to, nnd vet within,
I their powers; for nothing else will restore
I tho confidence nnd good will that ought
; to exist between the railroads and the
, people. In dealing with manufacturing
i nnd trading corporations tho Democratic
party draws a. distinction between those
corporations and they constitue the great
majority of all tho manufacturing and
J ' trading corporations which are engaged
j In a legitimate effort to supply what the
I consumers noed, and the very few cor
porations which are seeking bv con
scienceless methods to tko nvlvantnge oP
the public on tho one hand, while on the
other hand they bankrupt competitors,
oppress tho producers of raw materials
and deal arbitrarily with their emplovees
It endeavors to protect the Innocent'cor
porations by x-islting punishment upon
thnsA pornnral Innc wlifnli ir.illti- r i
I fractions of tho moral and tho statute law.
Hore. too,, our platform Is specific and no
ono can use its language to frighten any
business man whose transactions arc fair
and whoso income is honestlv eurnwl.
No one can contrast tho p'lalr, straight
forward declarations of our parlv with
the vague and ambiguous utterances of
the Republican lenders and the Republi
can candidate without recognizing that
our appeal Is to the judgment and good
sense of tho voters who desliu Justice
for themselves and insist upon justice bc-
big done by others. Our party, if cr-
trusted with the power, will remedy tin
4 abuses which have grown up under Re
publican rule and yet remedy thoso
abuses with due regard to constitutional
limitations and without Injury to any le
gitimate business interest.

ding ceremony does not differ greatly
from rlirit of any church ceremony,
but there is a concluding programme
that takes an hour which makes such
a ceremony quilo an oddity. After the
couple lias been united in marriage,
friends and relatives make, little testi
monial speeches telling what they know

I form, each of the ladies wearing a whito
scarf over her right shoulder, which
is always worn in a like service. The

J was dressed in black.
As soon as tho coremonv had been

Miss Ivlary Mysllver?:, until a week ago j

The Mysllvcrz girl told the police how

that the children fed at the Institution

BRYAN MEN PLAN AGGRESSIVE I
CAMPAIGN IN WESTERN STATES
CHICAGO. Sept. 0. Willi tho object of
perfecting an organization and doveloplng
plans for an aggressive campulgn In the
Pacific states, a meeting of the national
committeemen and state chairmen of
California, Oregon and Washington lias
been called by National Chairman Mack,
to meet In Portland, Or., on September lfi.
The call was Issued today, following a
conference of M r. Mack , and National
Committeeman Miller of Oregon, who dis
cussed In a general way a plan to niako
'an effective campaign In tho far West.
Mr. Mack Is convinced from the roports ,
which wero mndo at the national com-
mltteo meeting yesterday that there is ,
an excellent chance of bringing tho Pacific
coast states into the Democratic columns

Kern Is expected to make several speeches
west of the Rocky mountains, and Sen
ator Gore of Oklahoma and Theodore A.
Hell, who was temporary chairman of the
Denver convention, will also sponk in the
far western territory. While no deflnlto
announcement has been made at head
quarters, it is generally believed by the
national committeemen here that the lat
ter part of October will find Mr. Bryan
campaigning along the Pacific.
National Committeeman Miller said to
day after his conference with Mr. Mnck:
"Conditions are highly favorable to the
Democracy in tho Pacific coast states,
and I believe Mr. Bryan will get a larger
per cont of the Republican voto in those
states than In any others of a like popula
tion In tho country."
Chairman Mack announced tonight that
Mr. Bryan's plans In tho East had under
gone a change, and that instead of speak
ing In Wilmington, Del., on September
In, Mr. Brynn would speak that dav in
Jersey City, and in Wilmington on Sep
; tembor 17. Mr. Bryan's date for New
, York City has been also advanced from

Culberson, chairman of the advisory com
mittee, left today for New York to take
up his work in the eastern headquarters.
Senator Culberson said beforo his de
parture that ho believed the sentiment of
the country is decidedly with tho Democ
racy, and that tho fight from now on Is
to maintain and hold this advantage.
State Senator Thomas F. Cvady of New
York City was a visitor at headquarters
tonight nnd told the national committee
men that Norman E. Muck was the strong
est man tho Democrats could nominate for

"Wonderful, remarkable, extraor
dinary," wero tho words used by the
officers prosont when they wero a6kod
-tfhat they thought of the flights made,
today by Mr. Wright.
Secretary Wright watched the move
ments of the machino with tho closest
attoution and manifested tho greatest
intorost in everything that was going
on. Speaking o the work of his narae
sako tlio aviator, and his aeroplanet the
secretary of war declared that it was
a most wonderful machino and added:
"Perhaps it may be valuable for
scout purposes and' probably for man
others. I Kupposo this is tho beginning
of tho steady development of this
moans of navigation."
Secretary Metcalf declared that the
exhibition wns remarkable.
"He appears to have the machine un
der perfect control, " said Socretary
Porhaps the most enthusiastic man on
tho field was Secretary Straus, and as
soon as Mr. Wright landed his machine
I lie hurried to him and extended his cou
1 grntulntjpns, at tho same timo plying
t him wit n many questions.
"The problem of flight in the air is
solved," was the declaration made by
j General Murraj', chief of artillery of tile
army, as he looked skyward and viewed
the movements of Mr. Wright's ma
chine. "Tho utility of the machino is to be
worked out," ho added.
It was suggested to General Murray
that an experiment be made as to' tho
feasibility of launching a shell from an
aeroplane. Tho method suggested was
to have Mr. Wright soar over an outline
of a battleship, which could bo repro
duced on tho drill grounds, and wnilo
above it; to drop a sand bag. "That
would be worth trying." said tho gen
eral. "When tho signal corps gets tho

The maximum lioight reached by

chino was brought to tho ground August
Post of the New York Aero Club of
America and Charles Taj'lor, Mr.
Wright 'b mechanic, pressed ahead to
congratulato the aviator. They shook
"Fifty-seven, thirty-one," said
"As much as that?" said Mr. Wright
questioningly. "Why if I had known
wo wero that close to tho hour I would
h.avo stayed tho full time."
Thnt was really tho situation. Ap
parently it would have boon as easv for
Mr. Wright to stay in tho air for an
hour and a half as it was to stay there
fifty-seven minutes odd. Tho. motor wns
working smoothly, thoro were no aira
to speak of and all conditions wore
ideal for the flight. There was no way
for thoio on tho ground to signal tho
aviator as to tho timo and ho came to
earth aftor ho had been up, lie esti
inatedd, thirty or fortj' minutes. "Timo
goes rnther fast while you aro in tho
air." ho remarked, with a quiet smile,
and wined his forehead of perspiration.
"I roally had no idea that I had boon
up so long. I am glad we have .the
record for time in this country. Both
my brother and myself wanted it that
wa3'. The next thing wo will go for is
Mr. Wright straightoned tho kinks
out of his back, for it is rather a
cramped position hunched up in tho
aeroplane seat. Ho told his mechanic
that- ho had hotter alter tho back rost
a little and make it moro comfortable
for futnro flights.
Tho start tvas made nt 8:25 o'clock.
There was a brilliant sun and what lit
tlo air -was blowing camo directly out
of the north. Tho spectators consistod
principally of newspaper mon, photog
raphers and enlisted men from the
post. Ono or two officers of Fort
Myor wcro on tho ground, but nono
of tho airship board from tho war de
partment was present.
On the first round tho height was not
above thirey feet and tho operator kept
the machino well within the bounds of
tho surrounding buildings and fonts.
Then an tho motor continued to run
smoothly. Firing with the regularity of
shot dropping into a tin bucket, tho
aviator seemed to gather confidenco and
tho big plane commenced to climb. Soon
it was above the roof of the artillery
sheds nnd a little later topped the bal
loon tent and was sailing on a level

Mado Great Flight.
Around ho swept, timo after timo, Mr.
Post keeping a record each time tho
piano passed the starting point. As the
flight, continued Mr. Wright increased
tho size of the circles and soon was
sweeping out beyond tho balloon tent
on tho south edge of tho field and hug
ging tho wall of the cemetery on tho
Thero was no way to estimato the
distanco flown, for tho rounds expanded
and contracted at tho will of tho oper
ator, Tho averago probnbly was a lit
tlo loss than a mile and tho total num
ber was fiftj-'POveu. It was just
about one minuto to tho circle of
tho drill grounds. The motor was only
running at about three-quarters speed,
the sotting not having been altered '
sinco tho long flight last night. What
tho machine would bo capable of on
a straight-away course with tho motor
running nt full speed is still a nn'stery,
but there seems littlo doubt that the
timo would bo well over the contract
speed of forty miles an hour.
Temptation to Take Risk
Mr. Wright said after the flight that
there was tho greatest temptation to
increase tho size of tho circles and get
out over tho broken country to the
southward, but in case tho motor had
stopped this probably would have meant
landing in trees or bushes with tho re
sulting torn wings and tho aviator wn3
not taking any such risks. Two or
three timos on tho flight Mr. Wright
was seen to wave his hand to tho spec
tators and once he adjusted his cap.
It was cold and wind' in tho uppor

Mr. Wright did not rest content with
his performance this morning, for im

At tho closo of the flight the machine
camo down as gently as a steamer com
ing to dock. Tho big bird drifted lower
thnn on tho previous round and as
Wright camo around toward tho der
rick it was apparent the engine had
been cut out and was dying down. She
sailed on an almost even keol closo
to tho spot from which pho had risen
and tho operator with a littlo twist
threw tho forward planes into tho air
and chocked tho drift of tho machine.
She bobbed with a littlo sort of court
esy nnd settled on tho grass, sliding
not moro than six or sovon feot.
Mr. Wright scorned particularly elated
over tho fact that tho long distanco
figures wcro again held in America. Mr.
At 4:30 o'clock Wednesday morning tho
patrol wagon, with a uqund of police,
wont to the railroad yaras, and all empty
box cars were looked into for bums that
might bo sleeping In them or hiding un
til daylight. It was oxprctcd that a big
bunch of tramps and vagrants would ac
company the Buffalo Bill circus to this
city, but this proved not so. as the circus
employees went over nnd through all tho
cars previous to coming to SalL Lako and
drove tho bums away.
Policeman Clough arrested a man on
State street during Wednesday forenqon
who gave his name as 13. Wlimont, pj.
when searched ut the station a revolver
fully loaded and a box of cartridges were
found. Tho man. when questioned, re
fused to tell anything about himself. The
police will detain him until tho police of
other cities am be communicated with,
to see if tho man is wanted anywhere.
Wlimont Is 22 years old.
Tho squad of plaln-clothcs men circu
lated about the circus grounds from
early morning until late at night on '
Wednesday, but no pickpockets or thugs
were taken Into custody.
Wright said thero wns really littlo ho
could sny about tho flight from tho
vantage point of its opcrnting seat.
Tlo was feeling more and moro confident
in handling it. 'Some of the shorter
turns had been made at an anglo of
almost thirty degrees with tho hori
zon, but Mr. Wright said ho was not
conscious of much of a tilt at .'1113'
stage of tho flight and knew that ho
always had a largo reserve of tilting
anglo and rudder power to bring him
back on an oven keel. ITo commented
on tho temptation of going far off the
parade grounds, but said ho did not
wish to risk that yet.
After tho flight tho courso was
measured and it was found that Mr.
Wright covered a distanco approximat
ing nine-tonths of a mile for each
round of tho machine, making a total
distanco of 51.3 miles. This would
mako tho speed 53.5 miles an hour, but
as tho motor was not turned on nt full
speed the distanco covered was prob
ably loss than that estimated.
Augustus Post took the timo for the
flight, which it is believed will bo offiic
ally nccopted by the Aerodub of Franco.
Today's flight indicates thnt Mr.
Wright will have littlo difficult in ful
filling tho requiromonts of his contract
with tho government.
It is said that Mr. Wright intends to
go after tho $50,000 prize offored for
an aeroplnno flight from London to
Manchester, England, after tho ofliic
ial flights at Fort Myor have been
made.. Tho navy department an
