TONIGHT'S RECEPTION NOT TO BE
ONE SWEET SONG.
GOVERNMENT OWNERSHIP IDEA
Jt Has Leaked Out That Bryan Will
Tonight Come Out In Favor of Gov
ernment Ownership of Railroads ,
and Southern Democrats Resent It.
Now York , Aug. DO. The reception
of Mr. Bryan 1 Madison Square gar
den tonight may not develop Into ono
grand , sweet song. Trouble Is brow-
Ing.
Ing.A
A tip has gone out from some olll-
cial or seml-olllclal source that the
"commoner , " In his speech Is to cor A
out Into the open In favor of fodo.
ownership and operation of all the
railroads in the country. Southern
democratic leaders are opposed to this
proposition. It would do away with
their system of providing separate-
cars for whites and negroes.
Senators Bailey and Culburson of
Texas , former Governor Benton Mc
Millan of Tennessee and many other
prominent southern democrats , are in
the city and others are expected.
They are going to try to obtain an audience -
dienco with Mr. Bryan before ho
makes his Madison Square garden
speech , and will urge him not to come
out In favor of government ownership.
Have Dire Threat.
Prominent southern democrats said
today that if Mr. Bryan did , In his
speech tonight , advocate such a pol
icy , it would he extremely doubtful If
any southern delegate to the demo
cratic national convention of 1908
would vote for his nomination for
President.
Another fly dropped into the Bryan
reception ointment. Thomas Tnggart
of French Lick Springs and Indianap
olis , chairman of the democratic na
tional committee , Is here. The Bryan
reception has brought to the city a
majority of members of the national
committee , and a persistent report is
In circulation that Taggart will call a
meeting of the committee in order to
expel or discipline Roger Sullivan of
Illinois.
Mr. Bryan , In various letters and
cablegrams , urged that Sullivan be put
off the committee and put down and
out as democratic boss of Illinois.
Goltra , the former school friend
who greeted Bryan and took the Nebraskan -
braskan In his yacht , the Illlnl , Is a
trust magnate.
New York , Aug. 30. Under gray
Skies , but in exuberant spirits , nnd
bronzed by the suns ot many climes
during a year of travel completely
around the world , William Jennings
Bryan of Nebraska , twice the upmineo
of the Democratic party for president
of the United States and already In
dorsed as the candidate of 1908 ,
steamed up New York bay on the
Prlnzess Irene and received an ova
tion from large welcoming parties ,
which went down to Quarantine to
meet and cheer the In-coming vessel
and Its distinguished passenger.
Mr. Bryan did not enjoy his usual
health during the voyage , but he was
much better and said that he felt sure
be would be able to carry out the
plans which have been made for him
during the next few days. He was
very much fatigued- when he boarded
the steamer and during the entire
voyage suffered from indigestion and
severe headache. His illness was not
Borlous enough to Interfere with his
work , however , and He devoted a largo
portion of the nine days at sea In pre
paring his speeches and In keeping up
his correspondence.
Mr. Bryan will not land In New
York city proper until this afternoon ,
when he will be received nt the Battery
itn
tery by delegations of prominent Dem
ocrats from all parts of the country
and escorted to the hotel , where ho
1Ce.
will make his headquarters while here.
He was taken off the Prinze&b Irene
by special permission of President
Roosevelt shortly after the vessel had
anchored in Quarantine. First he went
aboard two tugs , which had been char
tared by "Bryan's Nebraska Homo
Folks , " where he was oxultantl >
greeted and hailed as the next presi
dent. He then went aboard ll O
yacht "Illlnl , " owned by his - ne
friend and schoolmate Edward F. Gel
tra of St , Louis , and where such well
known-Democrats as Norman E. Mack
ilCk.
national commltteeman 1'or Now York ,
k.m
and Daniel J. Campau , national com-
mltteeman for Michigan , were await
ing him. In the "lllinl" Mr. Bryan was
taken to the landing of the Ocean
Yacht club , at Stapleton , whore bean
landed and was whirled away in nn
automobile to the home of Lewis
Nixon , on the heights of. Tompklns-
ville. and overlooking the harbor.
Holds Conference With Friends.
Hero Mr. Bryan spent the night , the
evening being devoted to a serious >
contoiuneu with intimate personal ,
friends and men of prominence In his
party. No especial political algnlfl (
cano was attached to the conference
iby those who attended It and who de
clared its purport was merely to learn
Mr. Bryan's wishes regarding the
plans which have been made for him
during Ui next few wuoks and to ac-
quaint htm with the drift of affairs at
homo.
Mr. Bryan was accompanied by his
wife and daughter , Miss Grace Dryan ,
Mr. Bryan could not be drawn Into
a discussion of political questions.
"What I have to say of politics at
this time and with my Incomplete
knowledge of affairs at homo will bo
said tonight nt the Madison Square
garden reception under the auaplcoa
of the Commercial Travelers' AntiTrust -
Trust League. Probably then you
will find that 1 shall discuss subjects
I have spoken of before , " Mr. Bryan
added , with twinkling eye.
Asked pointedly regarding the prob-
nblllt > of his candidacy , Mr Bryan
snt.l iir had nothliu ; to add lo the let
ter ho wrote former Senator J 1C.

hu might accept a third nomination

Home Folks Whoop Things Up.
"Brjan's Nebraska home folks"
were the most enthusiastic of all On
two big tugboats which Journeyed
down -the bay side by side they went
to welcome their distinguished neigh
bor. With tumultuous cheers they
pulled up alongside the after gangway
of th' jig steamer and called their
greetings to Mr. Bryan , who stood on
the deck just above them , and smiled
and waved his hat. Big boxes of ( lowers -
ers were tossed on board for Mrs.
Bryan. Then the Nebraska state Hag
was flung to the breeze and the cheer
Ing was renewed. Songs were sung
and the cheering was taken up time
and again , while Mr. Bryan was going
through the necessary formalities of
the customs inspection laws.
There had also gone on board the
Prlnzess Irene , Lewis Nixon , Mayor
Frank W. Brown of Lincoln , Neb. ; Mr
Goltia and Mayor Dahlman of Omaha.
The three former bad pone down on
the Illlnl , while Mayor Dahlman was
In charge of the home folks.
When the baggage had all been
passed and Mr. Bryan was ready to
descend to the Nebraskans' tugs there
was another outburst of enthusiasm ,
union was taken up with a will this
time by those on the crowded decks of
the Prlnzess Irene. Cabin and second
class passengers lined the rails , cheerIng -
Ing and waving hats and handker
chiefs as their noted fellow traveler
disappeared over the side. Huddled
forward on the decks of the steamer
were more than a thousand Immi
grants , gathered from every corner of
Europe. The unusual scenes attend
ing their landing In their new home
must have made a deep impression up
on the keenly interested foreigners
As he set foot upon the tug Mr.
Bryan was fairly mobbed by the Ne
braskans. Each was anxious to be
the first to shake hands with the
home-comer , who warmly returned
every word of greeting. All seemed
to he old friends and many were
called by their first names or some
given name , the memory of which had
lasted from boyhood days. All this ,
time the whistles on the craft which
swarmed about the Prlnzess Irene was
tooting madly. Flags were dipping
everywhere and from the shore small
craft put out In multiplying numbers.
Mr. Bryan was called upon for a
speech by the Nebraskans , but he con
fined himself to telling them , In a
purely personal vein , how happy he
was to be home again and what a de
light and surprise It had been to him
to find so many of his "homo folks'
on hand to greet him.

The foundation of the humnn body
Is compose J of UOO bones , covered
with 522 voluntary muscles. The
smaller blood vessels are so numerous
as to be beyond the tellln ? , but wo
have no fewer than about 1,000 arteries
through which the blood is always
flowing under tlm government of the
heart.
The blood Is composed'of two constit
uents , termed by physiologists red and
white corpuscles , numbering some thou
sands of mllKons.
Our house has something like GOO
tiny tele-graph wires , called nerves ,
connected wlfli the brain and spinal
cord , and these little wires are always
throbbing with messages which they
telegraph to the main olllcc the brain.
Besides these there arc the sympathet
ic wires , or nerves , numbered by thou
sands , which help the former.
The front of our house , the skin , nas
beeu measured up and found , If spread
out , to cover llfteen square feet.
The ventilation scheme by which we
get our fresh air Is built of such fine
porous stuff that , If spread out , It
would be found to cover a stretch of
land big enough to contain a lift ecu
roomed house. We refer to the lungs
which have hundreds of millions of
air cells.
To every square Inch of the palm of
the hand are 2,500 pores , while the
number of sweat glands In the skin
generally Is 2,500.000. Their function
is to deposit secretions upon the skin ;
hence the necessity of a daily tub to
wash this stuff away. othorwNo It clogs
the sweat glands nnd prevents their
proper working. x
