Chicago, III.. Oct, 21. Nearlv 2. men en

noon as the result of an attempt by bis
lumber Arm"? or Chicago to force their em

Men -were knocked down right and left
and clubs and rocks were wielded with tell

of several wagon loads of police officers,
who dispersed the crowd, fully fifty of the
participants in the fight had been Injured,
many of them severely.
At 3 o'clock all the Iumlor yard south or
Twenty-second street and on Blue Island
avenue, between Iomh and Kobey streets,
stopped work and all the men employed In
tho yards received orders from their fore
men and superintendents to "fall In."
They did so, and were marched to Ulue
Island avenue and Kobey street. At this
corner a number of Republican campaign
spellbinders were In waiting, and as soon

Many attempted to leave the crowd, but
Oil such attempts were thwarted by their

WILL MRS. BRYAN OR

Daughters of the Revolution Will
Make the One President Whote
-. Husband Is Elected.
Wasnlngton. Oct. 21. The presidential
election may decide who Is to be the next
President General of the Daughters of the
It has been decided by many of the lead
ing members to ask either Mrs. Roosevert
or Mr?. Bryan to fill this honorable position.
Neither of these ladles is at present a mem
ber of the association, but both are eligible.
Ono of the Hoard of Managers to-day
made the statement that within the last
w-ce; papers have been made out for the
admission of both these ladies to the ranks
of tho" daughters.
If McKInley and Roosevelt are elected,
then the choice will fall upon Mrs. Roose
velt: If the Democrats win, then the honor
will be conferred upon Mrs. liryan.
The election will not take place until next
February, but already the warmth exhib
ited In the contest Is burprlslng. Mrs.
Daniel Manning's second term expires at
Mri Manning has been criticised by some
of the daughters as being too mucTi 'of an
. aristocrat. One member of the board Is a
Clerk In the Pension Office; another, al
though of aristocratic lineage, runs a boarding-house.
Mrs. Manning neglected her so
cial duties in so much that she did not ex
tend her courtesy to the point of calling on
these ladies. This criticism of Mrs. Man
ning will probably stand In the way of her
election for a third time.
If either Mrs. Roosevelt or Mrs. liryan
should fall of election, then Mrs. Donald
McLean only comes In for third choice. The
society much prefers to have as president
one of the first-mentioned ladles, as they
ccrslder the position a national one.
Previously, when Mrs. Stevenson was
trado President General, she was only ad
mitted to membership ono month before
the elecUon took place.
Mrs. McLean has many warm friends who
are making a canvass In her Interest, and the
result of the next convention Is looked for
with Interest by outsiders as well as by the

The independent liiinbermen lined up on
one side, while the guards, who were there
to force them to submit, augmented by the
Republicans from the lumber yards, were

there were few men who were not knocked

The struggle attracted a large croud, Sev

Republican forces cease-il their attack on
the lumbermen who refused to be coerced
and the crowd dispersed. The meeting was

employed In the lumber yards announced

Delegate to National Convention
Explains Why He Is Not
on the Stump.
Omaha, Neb., Oct. 21. Edward J. Cornish,
for the first time In his political life, is not
stumping for tho Republican party. Mr.
Cornish Is a, brilliant attorney, a warhorse
of tho Republican party and was delegate
from the Omaha district to the Republican
National ConvenUon. A local fusion paper
called on him editorially to explain his
silence, lie responded to-day by an open
letter of 3.000 words, containing a. bitter ar
ralcnment of McKInley 's policies. .Jie says
"All these policies tend to confirm the
statement that not only In the United
States but throughout the world there Is a
reaction against democratic institutions.
The ransacking of history to discover the
frailties and shortcomings. Inconsistencies

over which oblivion ha.s cast Its charitable
mantle and magnifying them Into prece

our growing lack of reverence."
Again he says:
"To encourage the brown rices of the
earth to attain and preserve free Institu
tions of their own Is the greatest boon that
can be given them. To do this is the light
and easy white man's burden. It only be
comes heavy when Incumbered by selfish

art of Illinois and Kerens of Missouri, it
was decided to call in all the chief Repub
lican speakers who are In the West and to
send them at once to New York to offset
the Influence of Mr. Bryan's wonderful
campaign in that State.
The reports of the perilous condition of
the Republicans In New York had been
accumulating day by clay since Tuesday,
when Mr. Bryan reached New York City.
Their alarm culminated Saturday, when,
after a scries of immense meetings, Mr.
Bryan announced that he would stay in the
Kmplre State until October 29.
Telegrams by the dozen were sent to Chi
cago by the frightened Republican lead
ers. "Help or we perish." was the gist of
the appeals, and their urgency caused Sen
ator Hanna to take prompt action.

Huntington in a roundabout way and will

at 11:03. and after being separated from his
party Ipar ed at 1:23 for Columbus.
At Buffalo It had been arranged to at

Allegheny Valley train, leaving that city
at 10:43 last night and scheduled to arrive
in this city at 7.2") a. in. In time to be at

Huntington. Owing to the second Buffalo
meeting concluding late, the car was sent
ahead with a party and Mr. Bryan, accom
panied by lits secretary. Robert I". Rose,
followed on another train via the Pittsburg
and Lake Brie Railroad at midnight. In
stead of the train leaving Buffalo at mid
night, as Mr. Bryan expected, he did not
get away from that city until 1:20. Tho
train missed connection at Youngslown and
got Into Pittsburg too late for Mr. Bryan
to go with his party on the "Rambler."
The latter'a occupants expected to find hlra
waiting for them. When 9.20 arrived and no
Mr. Bryan there was consternation. The
railroad officials held the train thirty-five
minutes and getting no word from the
presidential candidate could not wait
longer. It was thought he might have gone
to the Birmingham station un the South

his car had gone and there was no direct
way of reaching Huntington until SM3 to

Huntington, W. Va.. Oct. 21. The private
car Rambler, in which W. J. Bryan, the
Democratic presidential c-andid.ite.is making
his lour of the country, arrived here about
S o'clock to-night, but Mr. Bryan himself
was not a passenger on the car. It brought
only the newspaper corresondents who
usually accompany Mr. liryan.
At Wheeling the newspaper correspond
ents were met by a committee of distin
guished We-st Virginia Democrats, headed
by Colonel John T. McGraw, National Com
mitteeman from that State, and Honorable
John II. Holt, Democratic candidate for
Governor. This committee occupied a par

The fact that Mr. Bryan was expected to
cross the State, though without nny Inten
tion of niakmg speeches, had apparently be
come generally known, for the various stop
ping places were filled with people in their
Sunday clothes, who had come our to greet
him. There was a large crowd at Wheel
ing, SistervUle. St. Mary's. Parkersburg, and
Indeed at all the other points all along the
travel. At many places where the train
did not stop, including farmhouses and
churches, tho people were gathered in num
bers, and waved their greetings to the train
as it passeil by.
At many of the stopping points the peo
ple were quite incredulous about the absence
of Mr. Bryan,, and some of them insisted
on going through his car and making a
search for him. There was a general ex
pression of disappointment over his nonappearance.

Knnas City. Mo., Oct. 21. The unbouiiled
enthusiasm that greeted Alexander Dock
ery In his tour in the western part of the
State last week augurs well for the ma
jorities, which will be rolled up at the
election next month. During the week Mr.
Doekery delivered ten spe-eches to crowds
that aggregated over w- p. tmhh In Hen
ry, Newton, Jasper. Bates. Jack-on, Va
line. Lafayette and Platte counties. He
shook hands with thousands in the coun
ties through which the tiaiiis passed, eover
lng the entire western portion of the State
Bach of the counties In is1"! gave Demo
cratic majorities of from l.v to -t.uw. and
In every county but one Jackson the pir
ty leaders declare that the old majorities
will be held or increased. In Jackson Coun
ty two tickets are In the field, pending
the decision of the Supreme Court, as to
which Is the regular Democratic ticket, and
even here the party, leaders declare the
light will injure tho State and national
ticket but little. If any.
Congressman Cowherd Is the Democratic
nominee for Congress In this district, and
his constituents declare that ho will be
returned to Congrc-s.
Lafayette County, which Is ao com
prisd In this district. Is highly Indignant
over reports that it will not bring out the
full vote for Cowherd.
"We are going to re-elect Cowherd." sajs
Stephen Wilson, chairman of lafavette
Ccunty Committee. "We recognize that the
fight In Jackson County may affect the
vote somewhat there, and this county Is
straining INUf to the utmost li make up
any deficit that may result. The Democrats
of this county recognize in I'uwlitrd an
able Representative, a nidti who has stood
lip for the right on the lloor of Congress
with elotjueuce and success, ami whatever
Jackson County may du, l.afajctte County
will not be found wanting."
The Democratic County and Congressional
committees cver where nre nor king encT
fcelicallv to bring out the vote, and the
Democratic speakers In the State are labor
ing with siidl earnestness to Instruct Ml
sourians in the Issues that have arl.-en dur
ing McKlnley's administration. M!souri
ans .ire- thoroughly alive to the conviction
that the Declaration of Independence and
the Constitution of the Vnitcd States are
really at stake In this campaign.
One important fact of this campaign Is
that the Democrats who left the pirty In
U9fi on the money Issu" are returning In
numbers amounting to practical unanimity.
They aro welcomed back with open arms
and appear delighted to get back. The
Democratic party in Sllssourl is a united
party. There are no distentions in the
State outlde of the very minor one in
Jackson County. Men who left the part In
ISM are now stumping the State for the
ticket. Major Nichols of Mnrshall. who ad
dressed an overflow meeting of the Mar
shall rally, is an example.
Alexander Doekery addressed UKetings In
the home towns of four Ml'sourl Congress
men last week De Armond at Butler. Ben
ton at Neosho. Cowherd at Kansas City
and Cooney at Marshall.
Benton. Cowherd and Cooney partici
pated in the rillles In their towns at which
Mr. Doekery was the leading speaker. De
Armond was campaigning In Mltblgan and
Indiana and De Armond's sons welcomed
Mr. Doekery at Butler.
Democratic speakers aro very active in
the State. Frequently their meetings are
held simultaneously In adjacent localities,
and then comes a struggle by tho local
committees te get the best crowd for their
speaker. Thus, -when Mr. Doekery spoke
at Marshall, Senator Cockrell and Dave
Ball spoke at a big rally at Versailles,
with one county separating them. The
Marshall committee gave a big bonfire
that drew Its full share of the attendance.
