ROM 'r democratic Leader Also Visi bly Worried Over the Talk of Roosevelt Being a Candi date for a Third lerm in President's Chair. CANT SEE WHY THERE ISN'T SOMEBODY ELSE Declares That t His Views AI ways Meet Opposition from Some Quarters, Therefore He is Not Much Surprised. Publishers' Press J New York. Sept. 1. Hon. William IT. Bryan delivered two addresses iD New Jersey Saturday, speaking in the afternoon at Newark and at Jersey City in the "evening. "Later he' re tnrned to New York and attended i. dinner given to him by the newspa . permen. Mr. Bryan was asked what he' thought about the argument of certain Republicans that President Roosevelt will be the next logical Republican candidate for president. Mr. Bryan said that if it were true, as many Re publicans had declared, that he had completely destroyed the Democratic party, there ought to be dozens of able Republicans who would be avail able as a candidate, as it would ap pear that almost any Republican .could win with the Democratic party wiped out. There would then be no necessity of giving President Roose velt what would be regarded by many as practically a third term. With such an easy victory for the Republicans ahead, why, he asked, should not somebody else be given a chance? When aslted what he, thought of the criticism by Democrats of his idea nf forlprnl nu-nershln nf milroads. Mr. Bryan said that he had never ad vocate anything that was not opposed in some quarters. He was told that some of the southern Democrats seemed alarmed lest the Jim Crow cars should be eliminated by the adopt lor of his ideas of federal own ership. Mr. Bryan, in reply to this, said that if the various states owned the lines within thoir borders the local laws would continue to be enforced. He was asked if he meant that ne groes and whites would be separated If the state had a Jim Crow law. tp which he replied that the state laws would naturally iiclil good on local lines. He did not cr.re at this time to discuss the details cf how the plan vould affect the carriage of whites and negroes on the through lines un der federal control. lie had noticed that one citizen, who did not give his name, was very much worked up about the possible abolishment of the Jim Crow cars, but he never attempt ed to answer the arguments of men who did not give their names, and that he hoped to talk in various parts of the country and deal with the sub ject more completely than he could In a conversation. Mr. Bryan announced a change of plan regarding his proposed trip- to New Zealand. "I think I shall not go." he said, "for I have been away from home a long time, and it feels good to get back. I had intended to go there after the election, but have decided not to." Mr. Bryan received from the Amer ican Anti-Trust league the following letter: "On behalf of the American Anti-Trust league and expressing, as we firmly believe, the sentiments of the great majority of good citizens who are opposed alike to the evils of monopolies and the dangers of social Ism, we welcome you home, and ex press to your our gratification and ap preciation for all of your great speech of Thursday night at Madison Square Garden, and more especially for your Invincible stand In favor cf, not 'to regulation, brt the destruction of the j criminal trusts and for the govern- j meat ownership of railroad-" NEW RECTOR'S COMING Rev.

New Yoia, 1. -Governor Jo seph Folk of Missouri was the guest of the Missouri society of New York at a banquet in his honor, at which about 200 were present, including sev eral women. The guests other than Governor Folk included T. L. Ruby, Samuel Untermyer, Augustus Thom as, G. P. Thompson and Benton Me Millin. Governor Folk said: "The n5an who violates the law is neither a Democrat nor a Republican. He is a rascal. And as such he ought to be prosecuted. Politicians today are be ginning to realize that honesty is the best politics, as well as the best pol icy. It is now nerally conceded that a rascal is a rascal still, whether he calls himself a Republican or a Dem ocrat Partisanship is a good thing sometimes, but patriotism Is a good thing all the time." MORE PLUMS ARE GIVEN TO OEMS, Minor City Offices Are Filled by the New Board of Works. WHO THE NEW MEN ARE MAYOR-ELECT SCHILLINGER IS TO BE SWORN IN MONDAY MORNING . AND . DEMOCRATIC WHEELS WILL GRIND. The "deed has been. did". The Democratic municipal plum tree has been shaken and about one out of every twenty ' who stood beneath a certain piece of the fruit,' landed. It is said that the Board . of Works, Mayor-elect Schillinger and his close advisers were in a great quandry be cause of the , numerous applicants who presented claims for recognition. The selections finally agreed upon for the minor city offices Is as follows: Street Commissioner Edward E. Dye. Park Superintendent Wm. F. Klopp. Supt. Crematory Louis B. Felt- man. Janitor City Building Frank A. Posther.. Marketmaster Henry A. Walter- man. Livestock Inspector Oscar S. Pad dock. Dairy Inspector Dr. Lee C. Hoov- r. Sanitary Inspector Geo. M. Young.

However, today Mayor Zimmerman is still "it" for not until tomorrow morniri: will the formal hift take place. Then Mayor-elect Schillinger will take the oath of offi ce and the Democratic wheels will begin to grind. The few Republicans who are left in the city hall will be gentle reminders of the , party that once was". The Fire Department. It is asserted that the Democratic leaders are much in favor of taking whack at the fire department and reorganizing it on a Democratic bas is, but the sentiment of most citizens against this has been so pronounced that the leaders have done nothing. Whether there will be any changes ia the make up of the department at this time is not known, excepting to the powers that be. but there is con siderable uneasiness indicated. The idea prevails that the Board of Works will let the department stand for the present, but the ax may fall later.

United States Pension Office Has Issued Interesting Sta tistics Relative to the Re ceding Ranks of Civil War Soldiers. NEARLY MILLION LEFT AT THE PRESENT TIME United States is Enlightened by Consul McNally at Bel gium Relative to the Most Vexatious Servant Problem tPublishers' Press J Washington, Sept. " .The year of grace 1936 will see the passing away of the last veteran of the civil war, according to tables and statistics just compiled in the' Pension Office. Thir ty-two years from now there will be only the younger generation to keep green graves of the boys of '61 on Dec oration Day, in .spite of the fact that there were no less than 664,736 sur vivors of July 31. That the rate of decrease in their ranks from death is rapid, may be seen, however, from the figures, which show that 1715 passed 'away during the single month of July. As a matter of fact, it is probable that a considerably shorter period than thirty-two years will see the passing of the Civil War veterans, for the death rate is naturally increas ing rapidly. At present more than two-thirds of all of Uncle Sam's pen sioners are veterans of the Civil War, since the compilation of figures on July 31, which shows their number as 664,738, gives a grand total of 9S4.979 more than enough to populate any one of at least twenty states of the Union to say nothing of several hundred counties of fair-sized towns. With two-thirds of the present pen sion list done away with one may well wonder what Uncle Sam would do with the hundred million dollars more or less which would be saved from his present expenditures. It is not be yond the range of possibilities that a new war may come along, from its in ception. Then, too, the Phillippines in their present state of peaceful and assimilated civilization may be count- continued on Page Four.)

The regular September raise in the price of coal has been made and those persons who wrere not so fortunate as to take advantage of the low rates during the summer months, and lay in their winter supply of coal, will have to pay an advance of from twenty-five to fifty cents, per ton. VOwing to the fact, it is declared, that the wholesale price of coal always advances the first of September, the coal merchants r Richmond met Friday night to deter mine the raise that should be made in the retail price in Richmond. It was decided that a corresponding advance should be made on all varieties wjth the exception of Jackson, CarmeL Nut Slack and Coke, which remain.' at the old prices, respectively, 5, $( $2.75 and $5.73 per ton. The greatest advance was that on Pocahontas, which goes from $4.50 to $5.00. This line of soft coal is used probably more than any other, with the possible exception of Jackson and Winifrede, each of which s'uffered a raise of 25 cents. Practically all of the coal dealers in Richmond will abide by the raise, and the citizens of Richmond will have to pay this amount unless some of the smaller dealers make a cut in 'the price.

What was report ed on Friday to have been a great government victory over Col. Asbert's insurgent force in Havana province, by reports received late this evening turns out to have been in fact only a slight rebuff for the revolutionists, if indeed the loyalists themselves did not suffer an outright defeat at Col. Asbert's hands. Asbert at the head of 600 men en tered Carabaldo In Havana province this morning. There were just four wounded men with the column. The statements of the insurgents showed that instead of being badly defeated at Campo Florida as reported by the government forces, thty more than held their own. The four wounded are all the men lost by Col. Asbert. It was reported by the government that Asbert had lost forty, killed and wounded. The statements of the in surgents denied this absolutely. Col. Asberts force has grown stead ily notwithstanding the fact that he has made no effort to recruit men and he is in a position to Injure the gov ernment materially.

The insurrection has spread to the province of Puerto Principe. Seventy men have taken up arms at Moron, that province, led by Garcia Caaizares, speaker of the house of representatives, daring the Liberal ascendancy in that body.

The mayor of Moron soon sumcioned the rural guards in the vicinity and followed the insur gents with the purpose of engaging them. . . . - - Later the governor of the province of Puerto Principe notified the author ities here that a mounted party of 200 men had taken up anus at Arroyo Blanco, near Ciego De A villa, 22 miles southwest cf Moron..

Mrs. Virginia Meredith, of Cam bridge City, spoke to a very large au dience composed mostly of women, at the Chautauqua yesterday afternoon on the subject of "Domestic Science." Mrs. Meredith's message was one pri marily to the women, hence her au dience was one which appreciated to the fullest extent just what the speak er intended should be for its benefit. The making of a home, the needs ol the homo and the Influence of the home circle were the three moBt Im portant ioInts in Mrs. Meredith's lec ture which was of deep interest and which also had the merit of being in tensely practical in every way. - The making of a home, Mrs. Mere dith declared to be the, most import ant business In the universe. The home being the centra element in our social fabric, its influence was hence the needs for its government and management in the best possible way. Training the Girls. The training of girls for home-makers was regarded by Mrs. Meredith as a most important matter, yet she said that it was apparent that many families were more interested in other lines of culture, forgetting, that to train the girl in the art of hme-mak-ing meant an accomplishment that would be of moro value to her in the days of her maturity than an educa tion In any other thing. "The Home is the most expensive institution In our country,' said Mrs. Meredith, "for taken as a whole the money expended in our municipal and stAt covernment is not to be com pared with the money spent in the (Continued on Page Five.)
