OF MR. BRYAN'S PAST
He Resents Mr. Taft's Allusion to His Va
lie Demands Something More Specific From His Op
ponents Kegartling the More Up-lo-Date Issues ol
the Current Year.
Philadelphia, Sept. 15. "Taft is
dodging. lie cannot escape from the
issues. He will not be permitted to
run away from them. He has accepted
the nomination of his party. Now let
him take the people into his confidence
and interpret the platform so that they
will know where he stands and what
lie intends to do."
In these words William J. Bryan in
an interview today on the way from
Baltimore to this city, issued another
challenge to Taft, his republican op
ponent. He read Taft's utterances
printed this morning and dictated a
retort which in part is as follows:
"Taft is dodging. Instead of defin
ing his position on public questions
he is inquiring about my record. The
inquiry shows that he knows as little
about my record as he does about the
public questions whHi he attempted
to discuss. He accuses me of being
changeable and abandoning issues."
Mr. Bryan said he had been a tariff
reformer for twenty-eight years: had
advocated the flection of United States
senators by the people for years; had
been favoring an income tax fourteen
years. Taft he said is only now com
ing around to his position on these
Continuing Mr. Bryan said: "I said
in 1S:8 the Filipinos ought to have in
dependence. Taft has this year admit
ted that the people must ultimately
have independence. I have maintain
ed my position. I also discussed the
Philippine question in this campagn
and called attention to the fact that
Taft made a mistake of J114,oo.ni0 in
his estimate of the cost of imperialism.
"On the railroad question he has ex
pressed himself as strongly as I have.

Mr. Bryan said the democratic plat

very offensive to the bosses of Phila

about Maine?" and Mr. Bryan replied:

Hc said that Mr. Taft had promised
prosperity and President Roosevelt had
endorsed the promise, but he asked
how is Mr. Taft going to give pros

already had a panic on his hands. ,
Following the speech the presidential
candidate was driven to the Bellevue
hotel where he was the guest at
luncheon given by a committee of New
Jersey democrats In charge of Mr.
Bryan's engagements in New Jersey.
Mr. Bryan spoke this afternoon at
Washington park, a pleasure resort on
the New Jersey side of the Delaware

strenuous day of campaigning in New

adelphia where in front of a newspaper
office and before an enthusiastic
throng he arraigned the republican or

his sorrow for the people who he said
were compelled to live under its rule.
Mr. Bryan's reception in New Jersey
was a demonstrative one. At Wash

Honolulu, Sept. 9. (Via San Fran

September 4, a slight earthquake was
felt on the island of Hawaii and at mid
night, molten lava in the pit of the
volcano of Kilauea suddenly cea-el
rising and immediately began to run
out below the surface like water in a
bath tub from which the plug had been
pulled. The molten lava ran rapidly
away, lowering the level instantly and
continuously until by Saturday morn

in the pit had run out and except for
the heated sides no fire was seen or
As the lava lowered in the pit the
walls scaled off in great masses, drop

The lava in the pit. then about 900
or 10(H) feet deep, begun to rise nearly
three years ago and had been rising
gradually ever since, until it was with

which the lava flowed out, perhaps un

The Opening Meeting of
' New York Democrats
The M u r p h y - Mc Carreii
Feud is Yet in an Unset
Rochester, Sept. 15. The first ses
sion of the democratic state convention
lasted less than an hour and was de
voted exclusively to the opening ad
dress of ex-Judge Morgan J. O'Brien,
routine business, and resolutions. An
adjournment was taken at 1:45 p. m.
until 10 a- m. tomorrow, when the re
ports of the committees on resolutions
and contested seats will be received.
Justice O'Brien was liberally ap
plauded throughout his brief address,
references to V. J. Bryan and the late
Orover Cleveland calling out enthu
siastic cheers. His plea for harmony
was also a signal for a demonstration.
Upon the adjournment of the con
vention, the leaders returned to their
tasks of selecting a candidate for gov
ernor and in settling the perplexing
McCarren-Murphy controversy. It was
predicted, however, that a satisfactory
agreement would be reached. The
conference which was adjourned in
order that those present might go to
the convention hall, was attended by
Norman E. Mack, . chairman of the
democratic national committee; Wil
liam J. Connors, chairman of the state
committee; Charles F. Murphy, the
Tammany leader; Patrick H. McCar
ren. Daniel K. Cohalan and James
In answer to a question of Congress
man Fitzgerald of Brooklyn, Chairman
Connors is said to have sent back
word that all the McCarren delegates
would be seated. Senator McCarren
said all the delegates from Kings
county would be rfeated, or the delega
tion would leave the convention.
Reports were revived again today
that the differences between State
Chairman Connors and Charles Mur
phy would be aggravated by the sug
gestion that Connors would side with
McCarren in the fight.
TRUCE AGREED UPON.
Rochester, Sept. 15. A satisfactory
adjustment of the difficulties between
the factions in four counties In which
the contests were centered In the
convention, hung on a dead center
of uncertainty today until State
Chairman Conners, Chas. F. Murphy,
leader of Tammany Hall, and Na
tional Chairman Mack acting as a
committee of harmony, took the con
tested cases under advisement and
after hearing from the representatives
of both sides brought harmony out
of what had been '- regarded as an
It was regarded- at headquarters to
night that thS settlement of the Mc
Carren cases mean that, pending the
election in November, neither Mr.
Murphy ; nor Senator McCarren will
seek to pursue their warfare and
that each will lend his aid to bring
about the success of tho state and
national tickets. In Kings county the
antl-McCarren delegates were with
drawn. The Mott and Hefferman
factions in Chautauqua county were
given seats in tho convention with
half a vote each. The contests in
Oneida and Herkimer counties were
withdrawn, leaving no work for the
committee on credentials to do when
it met tonight.

TAFT NOT SURPRISED
BY MAINE ELEG1I0N
He Was Warned Weeks Ago of the
Size of the Plurality.
Cincinnati, Sopt 15. Judge Taft to
day shook hands with a delegation of
citizens from Greenfield, Ind.. who
passed through the city on an excur
sion. Mr. Taft in a few remarks, said:
"I value the fact that you are inter
ested in the campaign as evidenced by
your presence here to meet one of the
victims of that campaign engaged in
going through two months of nervous
strain that would bring nervous pros
tration to people less able to stand
such a strain than two, perhaps of
the several gentlemen engaged in the
Leslie M. Shaw, former secretary of
the treasury and Representative Bur
ton of Cleveland conferred with Mr.
Taft today on the result of the Maine
election. Mr. Taft said today after
receiving the latest returns that it was
in no way a surprise ,nor was it sig
nificant as bearing on the national
campaign. "The whole question at Is
sue," he added, "was the resubmission
of the prohibition question. Two
weeks ago I was Informed that for this
reason the republican majority would
be reduced to just about the extent it
Replying to the resolution of con
gratulations adopted by the New York
convention Mr. Taft today sent this
telegram: "I am greatly honored by
the action of the New York state
convention In adopting the resolutions
which you transmit. Please convey to
the members of the convention my
grateful appreciation of their kindly
expressions and their good wishes."

BRYAN HAS LAST WORD
ON ROOSEVELT LEITER
Mr. Taft Declines to Pursue the Con
troversy Any Further.
Cincinnati, Sept. 15. Wm. H. Taft
today declined to go further with Mr.
Bryan in the newspaper controversy
over the issues of the campaign.
"There is nothing in Mr. Bryan's state
ment of today which seems to require
an answer. Should it appear no later
I will take up the subject in public
speeches." This was Mr. Taft's ulti
matum as he exessed a willingness
that Mr. Bryan should have the last
word of comment on the President
This, the fifty-first anniversary or
Mr. Tuft's birthday, proved to be the
busiest day he has had since his ar
rival here a week ago. He delivered
an address to night to an audience of
ministers composing the Ohio con
ference of the African Methodist Epis
copal church, the first speech of his
campaign to negroes. The address was
not political but gave a clear outline
of the sympathetic understanding and
feeling entertained for the struggles of
the race by the candidate.

struggle on the part of a number of
county leaders who for four days
have spared no effort to discover a
candidate upon whom they could
unite to defeat him. The remainder
of the ticket was made up in the
"good old fashioned way" and the
organization slate was announced an
hour or more before the session of
the convention began.
The platform endorsed the national
platform and says: "At this critical

from the I'nited States to Germany,

people believed Hill would be nom

that Hughes was the choice of the
national administration. Hill was the
last stand of the antis, and the bit
terness which was a characteristic de
velopment of the past few days, was
a patent feature of the morning.
Most of the anti-Hughes leaders ad
mitted privately that "interference
from Oyster Bay was too strong for
them" and that Hughes would be
named. Tremendous pressure was
brought to bear upon Secretary Root
to accept the nomination but he re
