RIO HMOl TLJ) HIS FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS EXTEND HAND OF WELCOME Bryan Breaks the Time Hon ored Saying that a Prophet Is NotWithout Honor Save in his Country. POLITICS SET ASIDE BY LINCOLN IN HER WELCOME :Great Traveler Says that He Wishes That the English Language Conttained Six Hundred Words for "Thank You." Publishers Press! Lincoln, Neb., Sept. 5. William J, Bryan was tendered an uproarious xv-elcome tonight in Nebraska's capi tal, on the occasion of his return home from his tour of the world. The demonstration, which was wholly non partisan and planned by Bryan's per sonal friends and neighbors without regard tto political affiliations, at tracted the greatest throng of visit ors in the city's history. The crowd was made up chiefly of Nebraska citizens, but delegations . came from as far west as the Pacific slope, while many Southern states were also rep resented. The Bryan party arrived at 5:30. Escorted by a mounted cavalcade of a hundred horsemen, many of them prominent citizens, Mr. Bryan, ac companied by Governor Mickey and Mayor Brown, drove through the streets to the state capitol, a distance 'of a mile and a half.' The walks were black with humanity and cheers for Bryan went up from thousands of throats. . The formal home-coming reception program began at 7:30 at ?e capitol Mavor Brown nresided ast chairman and introduced Governor Miwkey, who welcomed Bryan home. 25,000 Cheered HimA More than 25,000 people; gave Bryan a thunderous ovation when he rose to respond to the Governors wel come. L Mr. Bryan said that the Arabic language contains 600 words signify ing camel. He but wished? that the English had as many for "thank you as he had had so many occasions for using it since he landed in New York. At the peace parliment he had occas ion to regret that he spoke but one language, but if he could speak all known languages he would be unable to express the feelings of Mrs. Bryan nnd himself over their., welcome home. V "The home folks" he said, "met us in New York Harbor and .floated us on a stream of welcome 1,500 miles long, several leagues wide and fathoms deep into this great ocean of I good will. To come home to where we live and receive such kindly wel comes touches our hearts. The fact thnt many who joined in It have not been able to agree with mo al ways, only shows how much of life we can enjoy together and how little political differences count between friends. The things we hold in com mon are like the gleaming sunshine; partisan differences count not be tween friends. The things we hold in common are like the gleaming sun shine: partisan differences the angry clou'is that soon nass away." Long Line of Hand Shakes. A reception to Mr. and Mrs. Bry an in the rotunda of the capitol fol lowed the speaking. A line including several thousands, filed through the halls to shake his hand. Bryan will spend several days at his Fairview home and will then leave for St. Louis to be present at the reception in his honor on Sep tember 11. His itinerary next in cludes visits to Louisville and Cin cinnati. A tour of the South will then follow, after which he will go on the stump for the Democratic state ticket in Nebraska. After the No vember election he leaves for a two month's tour of Australia and New Zealand. THE WEATHER PROPHET. INDIANA Fair Thursday and Fri day; light variable winds.

IT IS BELIEVED THAT MANY TAK ING EXAMS WILL TRY TO HELP ; THEIR STANDING BY USING ' NEY SYSTEM. fPublishers Press! Washington, Sept. 5. The Civil Service Commission today decided that all persons hereafter taking ex animations for .positions in the vari ous executive departments may use the fonetic system of spelling. Their selections of words will be limited to the three hundred approved by Pres ident Roosevelt and the board on spelling reform. All applicants who spell according to the fonetic stand ard, Will be given the same rating as if the old style were employed. It is believed a large proportion of those taking examinations will avail themselves of this alternative provis ion, hoping to increase their chances of securing desirable places by pleas ing the president and his cabinet min isters in the matter of improved spelling. . Buys Farm Near Fountain. Fountain City, Ind., Sept. S, (Spl.) Mrs. Amy Carroll of Richmond has purchased the- George Pitts farm southwest of town. i The perspective in colors of the Home Telephone Company's new building to be erected on the site of Dr. Bulla's residence on North Ninth street has been made by architect Russ, of Dayton, and is now on ex hibition in the window of Leo Fihe's drug store. The drawing shows a building two stories high, built of red brick and Bedford stone. The lower part Is of an architectural design suitable for an offlce building while the second story Is of a design suitable for a mecnamcai building. There are broad windows on either side of wide steps, similar to those at the Federal building on first floor while on the second the windows are high giving plenty of light to the operators and electricians, who will work in that part of the building. At the top of the building there will be a three foot Independent Telephone shield. The dimensions of the structure are 85 feet in length and 38 feet wide. There will be a basement un der the entire building. The front of the building is quite satisfactory as drawn up by Architect Russ and there will probably be but slight changes made in It by the oflicers of the company.

The "Old Guard" in the Democratic party in New York State, who are to lead the fight in the Democratic state conven tion, which assembles in Buffalo on September 23, against the nomina tion or endorsement of the candidates of the so-called Independent League, were in session here for several hours this afternoon, and perfected their plans of action. These men, who In the past, have practically dig; tated democratic party policies in New York, are alarmed at the pros pect that William Randolph Hearst, the New York Congressman, with the aid of Charles F. Murphy, leader of Tammany Hall, will stampede the convention for Hearst, and secure his nomination - for governor.- Conse quently today's meeting was held as a result of . the . boom, of William Travers Jerome,, district attorney of New York county, for the democratic gubernatorial nomination is well launched. .. 'Jerome the Central Figure. Jerome, himself, was the great cen tral figure at this conference, and he made a most eloquent speech In which he declared that the democracy of the, . state was facing a serious problem at the present time. Only honesty and truth telling, he declared, will win back the respect of the peo ple of the state, and restore tha party to the position it occupied when It was in control of the state's affairs. Men, and not measures, he claimed, should be the keynote of the coming campaign, and he decried the present apparent desire of certain leaders to pledge the party to socialism. Many "Turn Downs" There. The conference was well attended, but singularly enough nearly all of those who were most prominent, with the exception of Mr. Jerome, were men who have been "turned down" by the voters of the state. For in stance there was Edward M. Shep ard who was defeated by Seth Low for mayor of New York; John B. Stanchfield, who was defeated by B. B. Odell for governor, and others who have been unsuccessful candi dates for minor offices. In addition there were letters from a number of well known state democrats, who pledged themselves to work with those present to attain the object de sired. The leader of the absentees who were in sympathy was Judge D. Cady Herrick, who was beaten by Governor Higglns In the last guber natorial campaign. All of those pre sent, however, declared that they had no intention of bolting the regular party candidates who are to be nom inated at Buffalo.
