at was the truest of the Ohio state
board of agriculture, ami delivered a
uon-j.Kirtisn address at the state fair
grounds. John, II. Clarke, of Cleve
land, Indorsed by 1he Democratic
fetate convention for United States sen
ator, spoke from the same platform.
Bryan left late In the afternoon for
Marion,, O., where he addressed a
Democratic meeting at night. While iu
I'olumbirs, Bryan gave ont the follow
ing statement relative to the indorse
ment of John II. Clarke for United
Clarke Not III. Flrat Choice.
"I would have preferred the nomina
tion of some one who had lieeu ac
tive and earnest in the supiort of all
the planks of our platform, but the
delegates who indorsed the Kansas
City platform also Indorsed Mr. C!ark,
and after talking with him and listen
ing to his stioech last T.ight, I i.m
satisfied that his sympathies are with
the people in their tight against organ
ized wealth, and that if elected sen
ator he cut be trusted to etaiul for
the reforms for which the Democratic
party is contending. As an evidence
that his sympathies- are with the
masses I point to the fact that he has
long advocated the election of senator
by a direct vote a reform without
which other reforms are impossible.
Onljr UifTsnoD One Point.
"lie h opposed to government by irv
Jnnction, and thfc question ' is a pood
te3t of his sympathies, lie is in. favor
of are income tax another proof that
lie is not the representative of plu
tocracy. Ills views -on imperialism
and the tariff are sound and in line
with Democratic principles. His one
difference is on one phase of the money
question namely, metallic money
and on this question I lielieve he was
grievously in error in 1N9. But since
that time the arguments made in favor
of a larger volume of money have lieen
vindicated. Believing as I do that his
sympathies are right I shall trust him
to carry out his platform on all ques
tions that come lefore him, rather than
give encouragement to those who
would elect a Republican legislature,
and thus not only return Mr. llannn.
but prevent the enactment ot needed
Sotae Hint, for the Candidate..
"On the more acute phases of the
money question I lelieve he will be
found in entire harmony with the Kan
pas City platform Democrats. I can
riot conceive of his supiorting an as
set currency or the Aldrich bill, neith
er do I lclieve he. would support the
Republican measures, which provide
for branch Ixi-nks and for making the
silver dollar redeemable In gold.
Wouldn't Be m Square Deal.
"To oppose him because of his ac
tion. In ISOfi, in spite of the Javt that
he helped us heartily in WOO, in spite
; j the fact that he has supported
Johnson in all bis reforms, in spite of
the fact that he is now helping us
on everything except one pha:sc of one
question, and in spite of the fart that
cm "that question I lxlleve his sym
pathies will lead him to our side when
he thoroughly understands the subject
to oppose him, I say, in spate of
these things, would be unreasonable
nd unjust." '
State Convention Deal Entirely with
Slate Imqm Ticket Nominated.
narrisburg, Ta., Sept. 3 The

nated the following ticket by acclama
tion: Auditor general, Senator Arthur
G. Dewalt, of Lehigh county; state
treasurer, Senator Joel ?. Hill, of
,Wayne county; Judges of the superior
Court, ex-Judge Calvin Reyburn. of
Armstrong county, and John A. Ward,
of Philadelphia. The platform adopted
ts briefer than the usual Democratic
declaration of principles, and is devot
ed entirely to state issues. The great
er part of it deals with the last legis
lature and Its work and the conduct of
the state government.
The convention was well attended
for an "off year" '.a state politics. The

A TRIP FOR LIFE
Machine. Believed to Have Saved
Child at LiOgansport,
Logansport, Ind., Sept. 3. In an ef
fort to save u child's life Charles Wil
kinson, of tli is city, drove his automo
bile at a furious speed for a distance
of ten milesovcr one of the worst roads
in t.ho counts'. A druggist here had a
telephone message from a physician at
Georgetown, a small village ten miles
west, on the YVabash river, statingthat
he had a patient, a little girl, who had
diphtheria in malignant form; that if
he had some antitoxin within an hour
he believed the child's life could be
saved. Wilkinson volunteered his ser
vice auJ the use of his fast machine.
The road to the little village mean
ders along the river over a number of
steep hills, and in places is very stony.
Throwing on full iower Wilkinson let
the machine attain its limit of speed
aid gave his attention to guiding it
safely around the many turns in the
road. In thirty minutes from the time
the message was received by the drug
gist Wilkinson placed the medicine in
the hands of the physician, who quick
ly administered it to the child, whose
life will probably be saved.
