a heavy bombardment of the town of

the new town, which bas been badly

LAW SON GOES AFTER KEENE.
The Wall Street Operator Accused of
"Wean" Sales. '
NEW YORK. Thomas W. Lawson
in a sensational statement telegraphed
to New York, declares that he has
proof in a personal note from the
"King ot the Wail street manlpulat
ors," James R. Keene, that investors
were swindled into buying 292,000
shares of Amalgamated Copper by
means of "wash" sales, which he says
were operated by Keene from Flower
ft Co.'s offices.
"Wash" stock sales are agreements
between brokers for fake sales which
are "washed" off at soon as the trade
la stimulated among ouutde buyers.
Thomas W. Law sou's charges
against James R. Keene means that he
has aroused a new and great enemy
in his fight on the Wall street system
and Standard Oil. Keene Is dreaded
by the men who expose even tbe most
unimportant matters in which he has
made them confldanta. His long mc&v
ory has strewn Wall street with
wrecks of men and corporations that
stirred himto battle. He has been d
feated repeatedly by combinations,
but every time he bas. after a fe
years, suddenly sprung to the front
triumphant and stronger than ever.

most important so far as its direct in

of the nation Is concerned of any
which the President will name.
It is the present disposition of Con
gress to enlarge its powers and make
its decrees binding. That part of the
President s message which dealt with
the subject of rebates has attracted
more attention than any other part of
the message. Numerous suggestions
have taken the form ot bills, some of
which already have been Introduced.
Other will shortly follow. None of
these bills so far Introduced, however,
can be called administration measures.
The announcement that the bill Intro

It provides for the appointment of

LINCOLN, NKIV The- attack re

prompted on the part of the Utter a
prolonged response In tho Commoner,
Bryan's paper. After aser(ing that
ho is not a candidate for any office
and that every logical reform demand
ed by the Populists can be secured
through the ascennency of the Demo
crat a, Mr. Bryan says:
"It Is not only unnecessary ti or
ganize a new party for dealing with
these questions, but It wo.uld be tin
wise to do so. The formation of a
party is a slow and a difficult process
and Is only possible in great crises.
Only once since the adoption of the
constitution has a great party been
organized, and the question which
brought the Republican party into ex
istence was one of such tremendous
magnitude that it Involved the country
In a civil war.
"It is Mr. Bryan's purpose to con
tribute toward the securing of every

ing a member of some other party, he
would not hesitate to leave the vmo

can accomplish more through th
Democratic party, and while he so be
