LEBANON, Ind.. Sept. 27.-Dr. I. E. G.
Naylor, of Crawfordsvllle, who la making
an extended visit with relatives here, has
announced, through the local Republican
paper, that he has renounced W. J. Bryan
and the Democratic party and will vote,
this fall, for William McKinley. Dr. Naylor
supported Mr. Bryan in ISC;, and in giving
his reasons for repudiating the Democratic
standard bearer, he says:
"There is too much imperialism in his
personality. "Witness his diatribes on the
subject. A man who knows go much about
It as he professed to know will be very apt
to put pome of it in practice, if given the
opportunity. Mr. Bryan's greatest gifts are
talk, prophecy and promise. That he has
learning is unquestioned, but he has failed
to follow Solomon's advice to obtain wis
dom. Ills talk 13 inaccurate, his prophe
cies bear no fruit and his promises cannot
be depended on. Mr. Bryan Is a much nomi
nated man. Can he be true to all nomina
tions? If he can ride two or three horses
going in different directions he might do so,
but I doubt his equestrianism and shall not
take any chances of being fooled on his
"The Democratic party has become icon
oclastic. It Is only efficacious in tearing
down. Having no constructive ublllty, its
strongest point is destructlveness. You
Lave only to go back four years to prove
this. Already the gold wing of Mr. Bryan's
supporters is calling on the Republican ad
ministration to tie their candidate's hands
so that he can do no harm. I desiro that my
children and all the people of the Nation
shall continue to enjoy the wise, beneficent
and progressive policies of this administra
tion, I have enjoyed them. Hence, I shall
vote for Mr. McKinley."

MONON. Ind., Sept. 2?. With the ex
ception of the contest which, resulting
In victory for the remonstrators, closed the
saloons here almost two years ago, there
has never been a fiercer fight between the
Anti-saloon League and the saloon element
than is being waged now. Although many
applicants have been defeated since the
city was made "dry," the present one,
George MacDonald. is putting up a strong
fight to reduce the majority of thirty-six
which the remonstrators had over his pre
decessors. The temperance people are
equally active, securing new names and
trying to win back those who removed
their signatures from the remonstrance.
The power of attorney has beefc sustained
by the court, and this lightens the work of
the league, though a great many sign the
remonstrance who will not put their names
to the power of attorney.
The Rev. A. L. Clark, pastor of the First
Methodist Church, who has been very in
strumental in arousing the temperance
sentiment, is sponsor of a plan which will
still further help the cause. As the num
ber of voters in the township Is deter
mined by the vote cast for the secretary of
state, he proposes that the members of the
league do not vote for that officer, and thus
a majority could be had with a less number
of remonstrators. Many Democrats and
Republicans have approved of the plan
and signified their intention of executing it.
There are scarcely any Prohibitionists In
this county, the work being taken up by
leading men of the two great parties. The
temperance agitation is general through
out the county. In Monticello the sa'oon
men triumphed, but Cass township Is

In particular. He discussed the constitu

his attention to "militarism." During the

WEATHER MAN'S STORY
OBSERVER CLINK'S REPORT ON THE
Wind Was Blowing 100 Miles an Hoar
When the Anemometer Was Car
ried Away Phenomena.
WASHINGTON. Sept. 27.-The Weather
Bureau has received from Its local fore
cast officer at Galveston, I. M. Cline, a
report on the great hurricane of Sept. S.
The report is remarkable in several re
spects. It gives a complete scientific record
of the great storm, with a succinct account
of the damage done, a map of the ruined
area of the city and records of the meter
rological instruments at the station up to
ihe time they were destroyed by the hurri
cane. Mr. Cllne was one of the sufferers by
the disaster. His house, which was one
of the substantial structures on the beach
section of the residence district became
the refuge of fifty people about the height
of the storm. It went down in the general
wreck and thirty-two of its inmates. In
cluding Mrs. Cline, were killed. Mr. Cllne
and his assistant, Mr. J. C. Cllne, rescued
three children and one woman escaped to
the center of the city after drifting about
in the gulf for more than three hours on
the floating wreckage.
Mr. Cline speaks in the highest terms of
the work of Mr. John D. Bladgen, one of
the observers at the station, who stood
by the office until all the instruments had
been blown away. Mr. Bladgen, knowing
the importance of the barometer record and
fearing to trust the barograph or automatic
recording instrument took readings of the
mercurial barometer through the height of
the storm at five-minute intervals. The
Instrument showed a minimum reading of
2S.53, the lowest ever recorded in this
The report says that the usual premon
itory hurricane signals were entirely want
ing in the storm of the Sth inst. The wind
through the 7th and early morning hours
if the 8th was fitful from the northeast,
and storm signals were displayed. At 5
a. m. on the 8th the lower section of Gal
veston was flooded by a phenomenal tide
advancing In long swells directly In the
teeth of the wind. This fact was wired to
the main office at Washington. The wind,
however, did not reach storm velocity un
til 5 p. m.. after which It steadily increased,
accompanied by rain. Warnings were sent
cut by wire and verbally that the wind was
due to shift by the east to the south, and
that the worst was yet to come. People
were advised to seek substantial shelter In
the center of the city for the night, and
thousands from the low beach section
heeded this warnings and were saved when
the general crash came.
The wind before 8 p. m. reached hurri
cane velocity, and a record of over eishty-
four miles an hour was maintained by the
anemometer for five minutes. When the
wind reached 100 miles an hour about 8
o'clock, the anemometer was carried away.
There was a brief lull as the storm center
passed, and then the wind swung to
the southwest and blew with increased ve
locity. !t is estimated that this gust
reached a velocity of 120 miles an hour.
Mr. Cline's map of the area of total de
struction, checked by the estimates of the
insurance underwriters, indicates that 3.63S
houses were destroyed. The loss of life, he
says, will never be exactly known, but it
is estimated at over 6.0. The property
damage will exceed JCO.OOO.OCO.
Red Croft Auxiliary Soelety.
GALVESTON. Tex., Sept. 27. The Gal
veston auxiliary of the American National
Red Cross Society was organized to-day
when the relief committee operating under
the central relief committee and the La
dies Relief Association were amalga
mated. AH the public relief work will here
after be conducted through the auxiliary,
and it Is intended to make a permanent
organization. Miss Clara Barton has re
covered from her illness.
The railroads are still having trouble
in getting men to wor't. There is an Im
mense amount of work to be done on all
lines and men have their choice of Jobs.
Much Work nt Galveston.
AUSTIN, Tex., Sept. 27. Returning this
morning from Galveston, Governor Sayers
reported conditions in that city as greatly
improved. The relief committee is doing
excellent work and the people generally
talk hopefully. There were about 1.700 men
at work clearing away the debris on
Wednesday. It is his opinion that It will
require 4.000 men to remove all debris with
in the next thirty days.

Slowly Officers Praised.
SOUTHAMPTON, Sept. 2S, 1 a. m. The
American line steamer New York. Capt.
W. J. Roberts, from New York, Sept. 19,
for Southampton, arrived here last evening
at 10 o'clock, about 174 hours late. Captain
Roberts reported . that tho steamer had
broken her starboard thrust shaft on Tues
day at 2:30 a. m. The accident will not in
terfere with her return voyage, as the
company has a spar on the ship, and she
will leave Southampton at noon on Sunday.
Mr. Willfam Harder, of Philadelphia, was
a passenger on the liner. He made this
statement to the correspondent of the As
sociated Press: "After a fair passage I
discovered, very early Tuesday morning,
that a shaft was broken, but it was
Wednesday morning before the passengers
were aware of the nature of the trouble.
The steamer was then proceeding slowly
until the broken shaft could be discon
nected. At this time we were about 370
miles from the Lizard. There had been con
siderable sea all night, and the New York
was rolling heavily. On Wednesday night
the sea increased and the weather had be
come so thick, while we were passing the
Lizard, that Captain Roberts decided to
put out to sea and not to attempt to go up
the channel. The steamer remained from
eighteen to twenty miles outside until the
evening, when the weather cleared and the
proceeded slowly for Southampton.
"While the fracture proved a very seri
ous one. it was. fortunately, discovered be
fore any actual breakage occurred. This
prevented graver disarrangements of the
machinery. The engineers declare that, had
the actual breakage occurred while the
steamer was going at full speed, very seri
ous results might have ensued. As It was.
there was but little excitement on board
and but for the slowing up the passengers
would have been ignorant of what had
All the passengers speak In the highest
praise of the conduct of the captain and of
ficers of the liner. They gave them a vote
of thanks before landing.

CHICAGO, Sept. 27. In view of the fact
that Mr! Bryan and his faithful followers
are devoting their attention principally to
the cities, it is discouraging to learn that
employes of manufacturing establish
ments, large and small, arc displaying
unusual Interest In the organization of
Republican marching clubs. I learn from
iources entirely independent of political
committees that there lias never been a
presidential election when the working:
men in manufacturing concerns manifested
such a desire to connect themselves wirb
campaign organizations as now. I get this
Information through bankers whose cus
tomers and clients drop in and talk with

which the money lenders are more inter
ested at this writing than politics. They
are greedy for news and quiz everybody
who Is supposed to know anything or who
is in a position to zee and hear what U
What the bankers learn Is that worklr.g-tr-en
are letting their employers know that
they are very anxious to form clubs and
ally themselves with the Republican or
ganization In some form. This information
is conveyed In requests for permission to
form clubs and sometimes In request for
contributions to buy uniforms or other
necessary equipment. The movement ap
pears to be general. It has satisfied the
Republican managers that there is no foun
dation for the Democratic ciaim of a land
slide among worklngmen towards Bryan
and the facts which are coming to light
would seem to prove that the alignment
omong them established in will he
maintained as a rule. Worklngmen who
voted for Bryan in IKJ will vote for him
again this year, as n general proposition,
and those who voted for McKinley the firtt
time are standing by their colors to a
far greater extent than was thought to be
the case down to two weens ago. This dis
covery leads the McKinley campaign direc
tors to believe that Bryan's gains in citk-s
will fall far short of his cxpoctaticm.
It Is extremely Improbable those at the
Bryan headquarters know or understand
the force and significance of the revela
tions with regard to the attitude of work
lngmen as revealed by the movement for
the organization of Republican clubs. If
they appreciate the fltuatlon they are
dumb on the subject, and the chance Mr

great confidence by Republicans in charge

national campaign, and upon the closest
kind of canvassing in an Infinite variety ,,f

carry Chicago by at least as large
a majority as was given Harri

of Bryan coming within megaphone
speaking distance of the goal. In plain
English, he has no more show of carrying
Illinois than he has of securing the elec

Mr. Bryan's friends are Indignant over
