Question of Grain Rates on the Mis
souri Lines Discussed— Mill
The Judicial committee of the Fourth
Judicial district met yesterday after
noon at the office of Chairman Louis
A. Reed. The purpose of the meeting
was to decide upon the issuance of the
call for the judicial convention which is
to place in nomination two candidates
for the seats on the district court
bench now occupied by Judges Pond
and Smith. There was some discussion
over the proposition to call the con
vention direct, without the interven
tion of the county committees. This
plan, if It had been found practical,
would have suited some of the candi
dates, who fear a combination against
But the difficulty in the way of such
a proceeding and the objection to ask
ing delegates from Isanti, Wright and
Auoka county to come to Minneapolis
to attend the convention in sufficient
numbers to make a thoroughly repre
sentative body were so great as to de
feat the suggestion. It was decided to
hold the convention in the Union
League rooms, Minneapolis, at 2
o'clock, Aug. 19. The basis of repre
sentation is one delegate for every 500
votes east for Gov. Nelson and five
delegates at large. This will give a
convention of 89 delegates, as follows:
Anoka, 8; Wright, 12; Hennepin, 61.
The calling the caucuses will be in the
hands of the county committees. It is
understood that the primaries will be
held Monday evening, Aug. 16, and the
county convention, Tuesday following.
A BLOW TO ATTORNEYS.
Judge Belden's Ruling on a Motion
Judge Belden has denied Merrick and
Merrick a motion for attorney fees, in
the matter of the assignment of George
Vetter. The firm brought an action
and proceeded with the hearing of an
action to allow creditors to participate
ln the assets without filing releases.
The memorandum says:
"I am unable to perceive that I have
any authority to order this claim paid
out of the assets *of the estate. The
services rendered by the applicants
were on behalf of certain creditors,
whose claims in the aggregate consti
tuted a small minority of all claims
proven, I do not think it can be suc
cessfully maintained that the order
denying the insolvent his discharge
was beneficial to the creditors in such
a sense that it follows that the ser
vices of counsel ln procuring such or
der were rendered in behalf of the es
tate or of the creditors generally. For
aught that appears, the majority of
the creditors not joining in the pro
ceedings prosecuted by these attorneys
were entirely willing and content that
the insolvent should have his dis
charge, and I do not think it would be
Just to compel those creditors to share
the burdens of the expense of such
proceedings. And furthermore, I am
not aware of any rule of law, statutory
or otherwise, that would warrant the
granting of the application."
The decision will be important in the
face of the large number of such ac
tions which have been brought wholly
upon the wish of the attorneys who
have been willing to rely upon getting
their pay from the estate at the hands
of the court, and not really from any
claim of creditors. Many attorneys
have been allowed fees in such in
stances, and this will be a blow to those
who anticipate such payment in the

Question of Grain Rates on the Mis
After their delay of a day ln beginning
their bi-monthly meeting, the Western freight
men attacked business yesterday morning, and
held two sessions at Lake Park hotel. The at
tendance was not so large as at first con
jectured. W. W. Hosmer, of Chicago, secre
tary of the body, presided over the meeting.
The anticipated discussion of the grain rites
did not go through. The matter was referred
to a committee, which will check out rates
at a meeting to be held tomorrow ln Chicago.
The same thing was done with the matter of
soft coal rates, a committee of Lake Superior
and Chicago lines to decide upon them at a
meeting for Tuesday in Chicago. Some prog
ress was made on the routine docket, and the
association hopes to conclude Its business
with today's session.
It is barely possible that fates on wheat,
corn and flax now in force may be reduced
by Missouri lines. In that event all lines In
terested will meet rates. It Is possible that a
rate of 4 cents will be made. Kansas City to
St. Louis, and 9 cents to Chicago, which is
2 cents lower than the present rate.

are not represented, which is taken as an
ill omen by many.

ROENTGEN RAYS AND CONSUMPTION
Condition of tlie Lnngi Easily Ascer-
Talned by Means of the Light.
More Interest- is taken ln the cathode
ray exhibit in Mechanic's building,
where the meeting of the Massachu
setts Medical society is being held,
than in all the other exhibits put to
gether, and Russell hall was crowded
all the morning with medical men
anxious to see the revelations which
were being made there by the new
light. Dr. H. A. Codman has charge
of the exhibit, and it is one of the
largest and most complete ever shown
The chief object of interest
is the big flourscope, by which
the whole upper part of a
man's body, penetrated by the ca
thode rays, is shown. This is done by
throwing the shadow from the tube
on a large canvas screen forming one
side of a box in which the observer
sits. By means of this apparatus the
interior of the man's chest could be
plainly seen, with the outline of the
different organs against the light from
The man who was shown this morn
ing was a consumptive, having had a
cough for about two years and the
cathode ray showed his condition very
distinctly. The right lung, which was
healthy, was penetrated by the light so
that the ribs on the front and back
could be seen plainly, but on the left
side the lung was tuberculous, and the
ray did not penetrate, so that only a
dark mass could be seen. This exhibi
tion caused the greatest interest, not
only among those of the physicians
who make a specialty of diseases of the
lungs, but among nearly all who at
tended the meeting. There was a line
waiting ali the morning, which ex
tended from the apparatus across the
room and out to the door of the main
hall, and, as it took less than half a
minute to make the examination, it is
probable that several hundred phy
sicians must have seen it up to noon.
Besides this large fluoroscope. there
were several instruments of the or
dinary kind, on which examinations
were made by means of eye shields.
One of these instruments was more
powerful than the one used on the large
fluoroscope, although, of course, only
a small part of the body could be seen
by it. Not only could the ribs and
vertebrae be seen plainly when one of
the eye shields was held against a
man's chest, but when a pair of for
ceps was held against his back, on the
outside of the coat, they could be dis
tinguished without difficulty. Several
of the men there had fractures in some
of their bones, and those were plainly
shown by one of the machine^ giving
an excellent demonstration of the value
of the cathode ray in medical work
In another part of the room photo
graphs made by the X ray process were
thrown upon a canvas by a stereo pti
con, showing' some excellent cases of
broken bones and dislocated joints, and
also cases where objects were imbed
ded in the flesh, one or two of which
it would probably have been impos
sible to find without the aid of the ca
RUSSIA'S REIGNING FAM3LY.
Origin of Romanoff Dynasty AVhich
Rale* the Muscovites.
During the long civil wars in Russia
which followed the extinction of the
Rurik dynasty the imperial title was
still claimed by upstart usurper czars.
In 1613 a new dynasty was chosen to
put an end to the rule of pretenders
Michael Romanoff, the son of Philaret,
the metropolitan of Rostoff, was elect
ed by a kind of states general convoked
for the purpose. There had been vari
ous candidates, but a letter, said to be
written by Philaret, having been placed
before the assembly, which was
couched in terms advocating consti
tutional government, the son of that
church dignitary was elected. The let
ter said that the assembly ought not
to confer irresponsible power upon the
monarch whom they would appoint, but
that the legislative power should be
divided between the czar, the house of
boyars and the states general. The
oath imposed upon Michael Romanoff
was, therefore, to the effect that he
should neither decree laws nor declare
war nor conclude treaties of peace or
alliance, nor inflict capital punishment
or confiscation of property upon any
person except with the assent of the
boyars and the parliament.
Afterward this letter, when it had
served its purpose, was declared to be
a forgery. A few years later the young
czar ordered tha charter of 1613 to 'qs
destroyed and to be replaced lay an
other, in which it was laid down that
Michael Romanoff was elected czar
"and autocrat" of all the Russias
Gradually the convocation even of a
merely consultative assembly became
less and less frequent. Finally its ex
istence was altogether done away with
After 1682 no convocation took place
any more, except once under Catherine
11, for a mere temporary object.
It is to these sporadic cases of states
general, if they may be called so, and
to a charter enshrouded in some his
tcrical doubt that Russian liberals have
in our time, now and then, referred
as to a precedent. At least they did
so in writings published abroad, Rus
sian censorship having forbidden the
subject to be touched upon at all. Peter
1., Catherine 1., Peter 11., Anne, Eliza
beth, Peter 111., Catherine 11., Paul I
Alexander 111., all ruled on the strict
autocratic principle, which Nicholas 11.
is still bent upon continuing. Peter I.'
the Great, enlarged upon it by extend
ing the liability to corporal punish
ment from the nobility to the imperial
family itself. He had his own sisters
whipped! He put his own son to the
torture, who died from it. He, too, took
delight in chopping off the heads of a
row of political offenders, while quaff
ing brandy between each fatal stroke

SALEH'S FIRST So|l
DEMONSTRATION IN HONOR OF
MR. BRYAN AT HIS N ATI VIA
FARMERS ALL TURNED OUT.
FOR A TIME A STORM 'THREATENED
TO SPOIL THE "q»«aSTIVI
BRYAN TALKED TO HIS FRIENDS.
Ideal Citizenship and Ideal Govern
ment the Theme of the Address
SALEM, 111., July 15.— 1t was well on
toward the middle of the forenoon
when Mr. and Mrs. Bryan breakfasted
today. Both were tired out last night.
They drove over from Odin to Salem
in a carriage, on their return from Cen
tralia, and it was midnight when they
reached the home of Mrs. Bryan's sis
ter, Mrs. Baird. As soon as they had
finished breakfast, they began to re
ceive calls from friends and relatives
who had come in to attend the demon
stration. It was entirely informal. Any
one so desiring, could walk into the
house and grasp the nominee and his
wife by the hand. Just before dinner—
everybody takes dinner at noon in this
place— Mr. Bryan excused himself and
went down to the little barber shop
and was shaved. Mr. Bryan's right
arm is almost paralyzed today. The
unaccustomed strain of shaking hands,
in which he has been vigorously en
gaged, is beginning to be felt by him.
The strain has been worse since his
coming to Salem. The great, brawny
farmers in this region have a fashion
of shaking hands with a vigor that
causes less muscular power to wince.
Mr. Bryan hopes to be able to rest
from the handshaking business after
leaving here tomorrow until he reaches
Lincoln. He expects th leave here at
5:35 o'clock in the morning and go to
St. Louis, thence to Kknsas City and
then to Lincoln.
While the hundreds of people who
had come here from all over this part
of the state to attend the celebration
were assembling in the court house
yard today, a big black cloud loomed
up in the Northwest.' It approached
with frightful rapidit^ . There were
terrific peals of thunder and there was
a scattering of people' in every direc
tion to get out of the fast aproaching
rain. Many of the people became panic
stricken, as they still had an unpleas
ant recollection of the awful cyclone
which passed through this region a few
weeks ago. when St. 1 LSuis was almost
ruined. For a time it looked as if a
general stampede would result. At
length the rain broke and It came down
in torrents. In the space of ten min
utes the bunting, flags and drapings of
the buildings, which had looked so at
tractive in the morning, were bedrag
gled and almost ruined.
It was after 1 o'clock when the rain
ceased. Then the crowd came out from
the stores, taverns and other places of j
shelter and again began to gather be- '.
neath the trees in the court house yard.
The numerous country bands, that had
come from the neighliciring towns, with
Bryan clubs, began to play such inspir
ing tunes as "White Wings," "Com
rades," "Marching Through' Georgia"
and "Dixie." The bustle and excite
ment that prevailed in the early morn
ing was renewed. A big banner upon
which was- fastened a portrait of the
Democratic nominee was placed over
the platform. Beneath it was the mot
to: "Bryan Brings Silver and Success."
When it was brought forward the
crowd indulged in some enthusiastic
cheering. A big banner then was post
ed bearing this inscription: "Our Billie
made his flrst political speech under a
campaign flag 1880 at Salem." This oc
casioned another burst of applause.
By this time the number of people
packed in the court house yard had in
creased, until at least 3,000 people were
there. Half a dozen bands were scat
tered about, all playing at once, and
each playing a different tune. The din
produced was appalling. At intervals
there would be a lull 2nd then the en
thusiastic multitude ' %t off steam by
giving cheers for Bryarl, free silver and
Democratic success/ ''"
Although Gov. AKgeld had been ad
vertised to speak, he did not come.
This afternoon word' Wlis received that
the governor's health toas such that he
could not come. Hie was greatly ex
hausted after the . <£hi£ago convention
and has not yet fully .recovered. When
this fact became knoMrp to the throng
of Democrats thetfei vftre general ex
pressions of disappointment.
At 2:15 it was anoaunced that the
distinguished "Son of was ap
proaching. All the bttr.ds started in
afresh, the crowd howling like mad.
This was kept up until Mr. and Mrs.
Bryan were seated on the platform.
When quiet was restored, Hon. E. M.
Kagy introduced the Rev. F. B. Young,
of the Methodist Episcopal church, who
prayed for the blessing of the God of
Washington, Jefferson, Jackson and
Mr. Kagy then said that he was hap
py to be able to present his old class
mate who had been made famous by
being chosen to lead the Democratic
party. Mr. Bryan needed no introduc
tion. It was not only In Mr. Bryan's
honor that the assemblage had come.
It was to honor a principle dear to all
Democrats. He concluded by paying
an eulogy to Mr. Bryan. Mr. Bryan
"I have no Disposition to talk pol
itics today. I shall leave the discua
sion of ,
to those who shall follow. Returning to
the scenes which surround my early
home, the memories of other days
crowd out all thoughtsHof subjects up
on which we may; differ. I remember
with such graitefiii appreciation the
kindly feeling which has abounded, re
gardless of church and . party lines
that I shall not say a word to divide
those who are assembled here today.
"This is the home otomy birth of my
boyhood and my early manhood. Three
blocks south I first saw the light of
day. It was in thid court house that I
flrst gained the ambltipn to be a law

"There is an ideal plane iri politics
and I believe we stand upon it here to
day. We differ in opinion. We differ
as to party policies. But we meet to
day, recognizing those differences and
yet each feeling a charity toward every
other. We are all imbued with the
same spirit. We all possess the same
ambition. We are all living to oarry
out the same great purpose. We want
a government of the people, by the
people, and for the people, and though
we differ as to the means of carrying
it out, we can
DIFFER AS HONEST CITIZENS,
differing in judgment and agreeing in
purpose. I thank the Republicans who
have assembled here. I thank the Pro
hibitionists. I thank the Populists as
much as I do the Democrats, because
at last, my friends, when these ques
tions which arise from time to time upon
the surface and disturb the thought
and agitate the people have passed
away, we all agree in those great fun
damental principles which underlie our
form of government.
"We believe that all men were creat
ed equal, not that they, are equal in
talents or in virtues or ln merits; but
we agree in this, that wherever govern
ment comes in contact with the citi
zens or wherever the citizen touches
! government, all must stand equal be
| fore the law. We agree that govern
i ment can be no respector of persons,
and that its strength, its matchless
strength, must be the protector of the
fortunes of the great and the posses
sions of the poor, and that it shall
stand, an impartial arbiter between all
!of its citizens. We must agree on
"We agree that there are unalienable
rights, the rights which government
did not give, rights which government
cannot take away. We all agree that
governments are instituted among men
to secure and to preserve these rights,
and we agree that governments derive
their just powers from the consent of
the governed. We know no divine right
of kings. The people gathered here, and
in assemblages like this all over this
broad land, are the sovereign people of
all power. These citizens are the sub
stantial foundation upon which rest
our form of government. And, whilte
our citizens appreciate the responsibili

his own way and according to his best
judgment, to bring civilization to high

virtue of the people, as long as this is
desired by all, we can agree in the fun

differ in those minor points which
"It was here that I received my
flrst Instruction in Democracy. I do not
use it as a party name. I mean it in
the broader sense — that Democracy
that recognizes the brotherhood of man.
It was her that I learned the truth
of the poet's language 'Honor and
fame from no condition rise.' The
clothes do not make the man. We all
contribute to the nation's greatness
and all who have the good of their
country at heart, it matters not what
their station in life, what their ances
try, what their surroundings — all these
stand upon common ground and all are
"It was here, too, that I learned that
principle that must go hand in hand
the freedom of conscience; that every
i man has a right to worship God ac
| cording to the dictates of his own con
j science, and that no government like
j ours can attempt to dictate how a man
•shall serve or worship his God. (Great
"These are the basic principles upon
which have been reared the greatest
nation to history. I am a believer in
j the progress of the race. Talk not to
me about crises through which we can-
I not pass. Tell me not 8f dangers that
will overthrow, or obstacles too great
; to be overcome. We know none such.
! A brave, a heorlc. a patriotic people
will be ready to meet every emergency
as it arises. Each generation is cap
able of self government and I believe
each generation will be more capable
under our institutions than the genera
tion which went before.
"Abraham Lincoln, in that greatest
of his speeches, said that we had an
unfinished work. Every generation re
ceives from the preceding generations
an unfinished work. The works of man
are imperfect. We shall labor on from
age to age; we shall hot reach perfec
tion, but if we do our duty, we shall
leave the world better than it was
when we entered it, and every genera
tion will enjoy the blessings bequeathed
from the generation passed.
"My friends, with such a gathering
here, and not here alone, but through
out the entire land, from the Atlantic
to the Pacific, and from the lakes to
the gulf; a people such as these, a
nation can look with absolute confi
dence for that wisdom that intel

age to meet every hour of danger. (En
"But I must not talk to you. Permit
me again and again to thank you for
what you have done for me, for the
words that you have spoken and the
kindly expressions which I see on every
face. We know not what may be the
result of this campaign. We shall go
forth and do our duty as we see it, but
what shall be the result cannot be
known until the votes are counted. But
With a better understanding of the
transient nature of the many phys
ical ills, which vanish before proper ef
forts — gentle efforts— pleasant efforts —
rightly directed. There is comfort in
the knowledge, that so many forms of
sickness are not due to any actual dis
ease, but simply to a constipated condi
tion of the system, which the pleasant
family laxative, Syrup of Fig^s. prompt
ly removes. That is why it is the only
remedy with millions of families, and is
everywhere esteemed so highly by all
who value good health. Its beneficial
effects are due to the fact, tbat it is the
one remedy which promotes internal
cleanliness without debilitating the
organs on which it acts. It is therefore
all important, in order to get its bene
ficial effects, to note when you pur
chase, that you have the genuine arti
cle, which is manufactured by the Cali
fornia Fig Syrup Co. only and sold by
all reputable druggists.
If in the enjoyment ofgood health,
and the system is regular, laxatives or
other remedies are then not needed. If
afflicted with any actual disease, one
may be commended to the most skillful
physicians, out if in need of a laxative,
one should have the best, and with the
well-informed everywhere, Syrup of
Figs stands highest and is most largely
laed and give* most general satisf action.

Several times during the speech Mr.
Bryan showed by the huskiness of his
voice that he was deeply moved. There
were many of his former neighbors and
friends who frequently applied their
handkerchiefs to their eyes. When the
;..plause following Mr. Bryan's re
marks had ended, Mr. Kagy introduced
Mrs. Bryan, who came forward amid
loud cheers and bowed.
Francis- M. Youngblood, of Carbon
dale, also delivered an address, speak
ing in favor of free silver. He was fre
quently interrupted by applause, es
pecially in that portion where he eulo
gized Mr. Bryan. When he had ceased
to talk the crowd cheered, the bands
played, and the meeting was adjourn
ed, after an announcement that there
ANOTHER MEETING IN THE EV
It threatened rain in the evening and
the crowd ait the night meeting was not
very large, In consequence. The bands
were out, however, and there was a
display of fireworks. E. M. Kagy pre
sided. Upon calling the meeting to or
der, he announced that Nebraska Pop
ulists had endorsed Bryan for presi
dent. This statement caused great ap
plause. Mr. Bryan spoke as follows:
"I remember that when I was in col
lege I read in Plutarch that man en
tertained three sentiments concerning
the gods. They feared them because of
their power; they admired them for
their wisdom, and loved them for their
justice. It made a deep impression
upon my mind, and I think we can use
the same language to describe the
three great forms of government, the
monarchial form, the aristocratic form
and the Democratic form. The monar
chy is powerful because of the forces
which are concentracted in one hand.
An aristocratic form of government is
a government which is conducted by a
few, selected in some way because
they are supposed to be the best. That
may be wise in a sense. But. a Demo
cracy is the only form of government
where you can confidently expect
justice to rule. Therefore, men fear the
monarchy for its power, they admire
the aristocracy for its wisdom, and
they love Democracy for the justice it
brings mankind. (Applause.)
"If we were sure that our children
would be friends of the king, we might
favor a monarchy; if we were sure
that our children would always belong
to the ruling class, we might be satis
fied with an aristocracy. But when we
remember that we cannot control the
divinity of our children, after we are
gone; when we remember that when
we pass away they are left to take
their chances, and we know not what
their chances may be; when we remem
ber these things there is but one form
of government that we dare bequeath
to posterity and that is the Democratic,
which protects every citizen ln the en
joyment of life and property and the
pursuit of happiness; where he can
justly earn and properly receive the
rewards of toll.
"How can we secure justice to all
people? It is by applying to every act
of legislation and to every department
of government, the fundamental prin
ciples upon which our government rests.
I We have come upon times of great agl
! tation and there are some who are
quick to condemn the agitator, but my
friends, agitation is the only means, ln
a country like ours, through which
fodress can be obtained. They say that
those who pr^CCl? reform are stirring
up discontent. I remind you ihax dis
content lies at the foundation of all
progress. Those who are entirely satis
fied, never desire anything better. If
our forefather's had been content we
would today be under British rule. (Ap
plause and cheering.)
It is only because they were not sat
isfied, that they became
FREE AND INDEPENDENT,
that we have the government which
we have today. And so when a ques
tion is raised we ought not denounce
the man who raises it as an agitator.
We should simply inquire, "Is the prop
osition which he presents a right one."
"Jefferson has told us that one of the
great duties of government was to pro
tect men from injury at the hands of
their fellows. It is an idea that we
must consider today. Every act which
begins "thou shalt not" is simply an
act to protect some Individual from
some other Individual, while today the
restraining power of government is as
necessary as it ever was. Aye, today,
when there are great aggregations of
wealth with the power which wealth
brings, when these come in contact
with humbler members of society, the
strong arm of government is necessary
to protect the weak from the aggre
slons of the strong, and my friends, I
say to you tonight, that no govern
ment is worthy of the name, which is
i not strong enough to protect the
humblest citizen in all the land froni
the greater citizen in all the land. (Ap4

iastlc applause and cheers.)
