Bureau FaTored Repeal of Feed -in-Transit Rates. FAVORS HIGHER RATES On Mill and Elevator Shipments From the Grain Section. Traflle Managers to Decide Proposition In January. Denver. Col.. Oct. 25. The Transmis- souri freight bureau concluded a two days session in this city yesterday afternoon. The proposition to revoke feed-in-transit rates on live stock was favored toy a majority of the lines, but action was de ferred In consequence of the strenuous opposition of the Colorado line on the grounds that It will great Injure trade in this territory by placing prohibitive rates on sheep which otherwise would be brought from the pastures of New M-x-ieo and Southern Colorado to the feeding grounds of the Arkansas valiey and Lari mer county, under the old rate, and sent to the eastern markets early next spring-. There was more cearly ar.agrement on the ere rate auction, and it is probable that the old standard rate on low grade smelt ing ore will be effective after January 1. The mill rates on grain for the north western milling- centers will not be al tered, though there was lengthy discus-!-:' of a preposition to raise rates some what on mill and elevator shipments i'mh the I. tun sections. This action was gen erally approved, but as it would be infringing- upon the rights rf other asso ciations to pass definitely upon what this association would do in matters affecting different associations equally, the matter was postponed until the January meeting. It was decided to hold a joint meeting with all the associations of freieht traffic managers in the Transmissouri territory in January, when it will be possible to have a definite understanding wstb. all concerned and if the sentiment expressed at the Denver meeting- is sustained there will be a general advance of rates. HAHEIMAK'S CONSOLIDATIONS Railway Magnate's Presence In Chi cago Regarded as Portentious. Chicago. Oct. 25. E. Harriman. head of the big railway buying and consolidating syndicate that bears his name, is in Chi cago to confer with the attomevs of the Kansas City Southern, and President F-1-ton. of the Alton, regarding the future management of the former line and to discuss the recently formed trail !c agree ments of the western roads. Just what the syndicate intends to do with the Kansas City So-uhern Is not known. The ramor that this line is to be consolidated with the Alton, Illinois Cen tral and Cnion Pacific all Harriman roids and the whole operated as one sys tem, is generally believed bv local rail way men and financiers. It "is said that several of the new owners of the Kan sas City Southern are against any consoli dation sc-hime on the ground that it would tend to retce earning- of the various roads in the Harriman combine. Durinr the day it is said Mr. Harriman met with the presidents of the big west ern roads operating west of Chicago and discussed rates and traffic organizations at length. DOUBLING ICE HOUSES. Rock Island to Make Eoom For Har vesting Big Crop. The Rock Island's supply cf ice did not reach out this year. The company has been purchasing- its supply from dealers for some time past. There is a considerable item of differ ence to so large a consumer of ice as a modern railway concern between buy ing at from $:. to S3 a ton and storing harvest el ice at a cost of about 40 cents pr 2.i.( pounds. Several new ice houses will accordingly be p-jt up by that roai this fall. At Herineton another 1.200 ton house will be built and the 1.3w ton crib at Armourdale will also undergo en largement to double its present capacity. ENGINE LOST A WHEEL. Kept Track WMle Errant Disc Span in a Wheat Field. A remarkable railway accident that has a few. but very few, parallels, hap pened a few days apo in the southern part of the stste. not far from Wichita. A P.ock Island express train was speeding- along- at a rate of about 65 miles an hour on a favorable grade, when there was a snap and one of the gigantic driving -wheels was detached. It bowled along- like a child's hoop, tak ing a di&g-onaJ course across the right cf way and landed, etiil spin nine, in a wheat tie - i. It was tilmost miraculous that the locomotive held to the track, and was brought to a stop by the engi neer before more than eight or ten tele graph poles had slipped by. The foot board was stripped off and that was about all the damage done. That the engineer's cab -was net demolished by the poundins of a broken driving- rod is explained by the fact that the rod was bent double, having been caught on a tie or other powerful obstruction on the down stroke. MAY IN TIME REACH TO PES A. Surveyors Begin Work on Orient Road In Kansas. "vTichita, Kas., Oct. 25. A surveying party making the preliminary survey for the new Orient road arrived in the city to commence the survey east from Wich ita to Kansas City today. The party has been surveying from the Territory to this city. From state ments made here by one of the party today the line will go east towards El rordo and, in all probability, a branch w-ill be surveyed to Topeka at some fu ture time. The survey for the entrance ef the road to Wichita has not been made and will probably not be com pleted until the selection of the shops, which it is understood are to be Located here. The surveying party is under the direction of the locating engineer. Mr. Armstrong. SANTA FE ONE OF FOUR. Boad Said to Be Fighting For Pacific Mail Steamship's Company. Xew York, Oct. 23.

Y., Oct. 25. Governor Roose velt's third day of campaigning in New Tork state embraced several features not heretofore marked in his reception at other places. At nearly every place at which he stopped en route there were huge crowds of people. In this city last night instead of speechmaking the day's work ended with a view of an immense demonstration. This was entirely agreeable to Governor Roosevelt, who during the day had made nine speeches, some of them extremely long ones, while traveling through three counties Chenango, Madison and Oneida. There was a preconcerted at tempt at Rome to compel Governor Roosevelt to answer questions concern ing the letter of Mayor Van Wyck, the prosecution of the ice trust, the prose cution of the alleged canal thieves and others-relating to the office of governor. That this attempt was preconcerted is assured from the fact that men in the crowd asked questions, holding in their hands printed slips, and upon their fail ure to compel the candidate to answer numbers of these slips were thrown into his carriage. The goTernor positively declined to give any expression of opin ion as to the circulars or their author ship or to answer any of the questions contained in them. With the exception of a short trip of half an hour to Herkimer, where a brief address was made, the culminating speeches of the day were at two im mense meetings in this city. Senator Depew, preceding the governor, spoke at some length on trusts. Governor Roose velt followed, and said: "Mr- Bryan has gone about denouncing our little regular army, cur gallant lit tle army, and as a leader of that kind always draws followers, Mr. Bryan has had adherents who have gone about this state repeating slanderous falsehoods, which they knew te be slanderous false hoods when they made them that our army in the Philippines was an army of murderers and ravishers; that it had been doing foul wrong there. Mr. Bryan has said that the purpose of creating the present army was to put it in force near our great cities to overawe the workingman. I should laugh at that statement if my blood did not burn with indignation that any man should make it and yet be a candidate for the high est office in the gift of the American people. That army was voted for not only by Republicans but by Democrats, Half the Democrats in the house voted for it; the Kansas City convention had not yet made the dishonor of the flag one of the cardinal principles of their policy, and I will guarantee that not one single man of them dreamed of such a purpose when he cast his vote. The army was created to meet the exigencies of the Spanish war and the struggle that succeeded the Spanish war. As a mat ter of fact, the army is not in this coun try at the present time. For the last three years the army has been a terror to the Spaniards, the Aguinaldoan Ma lays, the Chinese bpxers, and in this country only the sympathizers with, those three classes have had cause to feel uneasv about it" Rome, N. T Oct. 23. The Roosevelt train was greeted at Canisteo by the largest crowd of the dajT. and for the first time the governor alighted from his car arid went on a stand that had been erected. The train was a trifle late at Oneida and the governor was asked by those in charge of it to cut bis remarks short. When he saw the crowd that greeted him he refused to do it, saying that he w-as going to take the twenty minutes allowed him to talk to such an intelli gent audience. He dwelt at great length on the trusts and Mr. Bryan's attitude, assuring his auditors that if Mr. Bryan's theory of an open market was put in practice it would result in two-thirds of the laboring interests in Oneida being thrown out of work. He touched briefly on militarism, using his former argu ment of the small proportion of soldiers to the civilians. At Rome a huge crowd gathered at the public square and the governor ad dressed them from the balcony to which he was driven from the train. The crowds of small boys followed his car riage, those on one side shouting: "Hurrah for Bryan," while those on the other side tried to drown their cheers with counter cheers for McKin lev. While the governor was speaking a "crowd of juveniles who had gathered immediately beneath the governor kept trying to annoy him by their conduct. The governor finally referred to them saying: "It is perfectly characteristic that those who are afraid to hear the truth should try to drow-n it by noise, and that those who are afraid to talk them selves should send children of immature age to yell for them." The boys con tinued "their cries of "Hurrah for Bryan," "What's the matter with Bryan," "He's all right," etc., and the governor said: "One thing, if Mr. Bryan shotild come here again I ask that every Republican give him a respectful hearing," which remark was loudly applauded. Continuing when the applause ceased, he said: "Because the man or boy who takes the opposite course shows himself either to be or about to be a thoroughly dis- reputable citizen." The governor said it was eminently proper that the advocates of Mr. Bryan Ehould seek by disorder to prevent free speech and called attention to the dis order as being an object lesson of great er value than he could preach. Some men in the crowd tried to ask the governor a list of prepared questions in printed form. He never heard them because the noise was too great in the men's vicinity, but several of the cir culars were flung into the carriage which the governor occupied on his re turn i'rom the platform. He said to the Associated Press reporter that he w-ould not discuss them and that the majority of them wer for the attorney general to make answer to if he desired. Here are the questions: "L Why did you not prosecute the canal thieves as you promised when you were a candidate for governor? "2. Why did you not commence action before the claims were barred? "'3. Why don't you have a summons issued against the ice trust? The only way to commence an action is by sum mons. None has ever been served. "4. Why don't you remove the mayor of New Tork for hi3 connection with the ice trust? "5. Tou have feeen only thirty-six hours at the capital attending to busi ness since June 1- Do you think it honest to take full pay during that time? "6. Don't you think a candidate for vice president should find courteous language to express his thoughts, and not call his questioners 'heodlums.' 'hoboes,' and 'drunks.' aid without any knowledge on the subject, accuse them of 'working their mouths. 'standing against the flag, and 'lacking in patriot ism ?' "7. Why riot give cut for publication Mayor Van Wyck's answer in which it is claimed members of your state ad ministration and Senator Piatt are charged with being 'particeps crim inis' in the ice trust scandal?" BRYAN REPLIES. Answers Questions of His Op ponents In Detail. Wilmington, Del., Oct. 25. The first of Mr. Bryan's night meeting In this city, was held in a big tent and while the meeting began much earlier Mr. Bryan did not appear until 9 o'clock. He had a long and busy day and found it neces sary to take an unusually prolonged rest after fcis arrival in this city. The tent was crowded to suffocation and there were far more people on the outside of the tent and in its vicinity than there were on the inside of the canvas. The great crowd yelled itself hoarse when Mr. Bryan entered and some time was required to secure quiet. Mr. Bryan took cognizance of a series of questions propounded to him by John P. Neilds, of this city. These questions were as follows: First Will he, if elected president, as commander in chief, immediately with draw the army from the Philippines? Second How soon does he contem plate that a stable form of government can be given to the Philippine islands? Third How soon after a stable form of government is established does he propose that congress shall declare the independence of these islands? Fourth How long after a stable form of government is established and inde pendence is declared does he propose that the American protectorate over the Philippine islands shall continue? Fifth Will he pay the obligations of this government in silver or gold if elect ed president? Mr. Bryan read the questions, and re plied as he proceeded to each of the in quiries. He said in effect that he wouid get the army out of the Philippines as soon as possible and with reference to the payment of the national debt, that he would obey the law. Introducing the subject Mr. Bryan said: "If I were to permit Republicans in each town to select the subjects which I was to discuss I am afraid that every where some Republican would avail himself of the opportunity in order to prevent my discussing the things Re publicans do not want to discuss. And when I heard that some questions were to be asked I suggested that it was only proper that the Republican committee should back the questions so there would be a responsible party known in the transaction. I have not heard yet wheth er the RepubHean committee was will ing to ask these questions on its re sponsibility or not, but I thought that I would rr.ke an exception of this case and answer the five questions and then ask some." He then took up the questions and re plied to them seriatim. As a reply to the first question he quoted from his speech of acceptance, saying: "I stated that if elected president I would immediately convene congress in extraordinary session and would ask congress to declare the nation's policy ti be to establish a stable government in the Philippine islands as we are now es tablishing a stable government in Cuba; to declare our purpose to give independ ence to the Filipinos as we have promis ed to give independence to the Cubans; to declare our purpose to give protection to the Filipinos as we have promised to give protection to the Cubans and have for 75 years given protection to the republics of South and CentralAmerica,' On the second question he said: "No one has attempted to fix the num ber of hours or days or weeks or months necessary but I will say this, that I be lieve that we could establish a stable government in the Philippine islands in less time than the Republican partv has established one in Cuba, and that I "thirk I can promise you that our officials would not embezzle as Republican ofii cials have embezzled Cuban money." To the third question he answered that in his speech of acceptance it was pro posed to give them independence as soon as their stable government is estab lished. He said: "The phrase 'and as soon" means 'im mediately' in our language; I do not know what it means in Republican." Answering the fourth question, he said: "If the questioner had read my speech he would have seen that there was no limit on the protectorate, and we be lieve that this nation can assert the doc trine that when this nation helps a re public to stand upon its feet the ground whereon it stands is holy ground, and that no king shall ever set his feet upon it." On the fifth question, relative to pay ing the obligations of this government "in silver or gold, if elected president, he said: "I want the Republicans who want this question answered to first find out what the law requires, and then I want them to know that if elected president I will enforce that law just as I will en force the law against trusts and put striped clothes on big thieves as w-ell as little thieves. But if you ask me to con strue a Republican law. I reply that I shall not construe a law until it be comes my duty to enforce it." Having replied to the questions. Mr. Bryan then propounded some of his own. He said: "Now I want to ask five questions, and when I ask these questions I want some responsible man to answer them. It is hardly fair for a man who has no responsibility to place his responsibility against that of one who has responsi bility placed upon him by a party, and I want your party leaders to answer the questions that I am going to ask." Mr. Bryan then quoted from the presi dent's message of December 5. 189 S. recommending- the increase of the army to 100,000 men. and asked if the Republican party, through any one authorized to speak, will declare that Republican suc cess this fall means a standing army of 100,000 in the United States. His second question was: "If the dec laration of independence is true, and governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, then I want to ask. How can you buy the right to govern people, or secure title to them by force?" The third question was: "I3 the Fili pino going to be a citizen or a subject"" And the fourth question: "Can you purchase trade with human blood?" The fifth question related to the es tablishment of a protectorate in the Philippine islands, concerning which Mr. Bryan said: "Republicans say that we can not pro tect the Filipino without a great deal of trouble. We have protected the re publics of Central and South America for seventy-tive years and we have had no authority in those South American republics. We have never governed them, but we have protected them from outside influence. It has never cost any thing, but it has been valuable to them. "The Republican doctrine is the doc trine behind which the monarchies of the old world have hidden when they have wanted to plunder people under the pretence of protecting them. Ours is a different protectorate." Concluding his presentation of these inquiries, Mr. Bryan said: "When the Republicans get through arguing those five questions I will have some more for them. The trouble is that the Republican party is not at tempting to meet the issues of this cam paign." Alter concluding his meeting at the Cause of usiness ,r, ;v r,rf r " 1 il! " I" L ii . "P- 1 life's path is beset with terrors. The naves Eiust be like iron to resist its many shocks. An eminent physician estimates that many of the failures of business men are directly traceable to a debilitated physique. They overwork brain and body and when danger comes meeting no firm opponent it hurls thera into the deep abyss of utter failure. This is a scientific fact. Don't blame your luck or fate or fortune. Realize that the fault lies within yourself, and then. t BRACE UP and think the matter out. Weak nerves spring from impure blood. Impure blood comes from a weak stomach. Weak ness in the stomach means catarrh of the lining of the stomach, just as weakness in the kidneys or liver or lungs means catarrh of the lining of these organs. Cure the catarrh, and health comes back. The medicine to do this is Pe-ru-na. Your brain will brighten, your weakness will disappear the horizon of life will appear brilliantly hopeful you'll find yourself made of the stuff which produces successful men. It is strictly a food for the entire body. It makes manly men and beautiful women. It builds up the weak places and fortifies the system against disease. tent Mr. Bryan was driven to the Grand opera house, where he made his last speech of the night to a congregation composed largely of ladies, some of whom had held their seats for three and four hours. DAY IN DELAWARE Col. Bryan Made Nineteen Speeches Wednesday. Wilmington. Del., Oct. 25. Mr. Bryan made two speeches of some length in this city last night after having made seven teen other addresses during the day. Be ginning at St. Michaels, on the eastern shore of Maryland, he spoke in succes sion at Easton, Preston, Murlock. Vienna. Salisbury, Berlin, ail of which places are in Maryland and at Frankford. Georse town, Milford. Harrington. Dover. Clay ton, Middlestown. Kirkwood and New Castle In Delaware. The audiences of the day as a rule were fair-sizei and a ma jority of them were thoroughly apprecia tive. At a few of the Ftopir. Traces in Delaware there was apparent Lok of en thusiasm.

Only a few people wer c : i-T-kt;it'-n at the r.iwi etaiion at Frankford. when Mr. Bryan's train p'jiied into that piace. and wni.e those who were there listened with at tention to what he had to say. th re were no rhe'rs The speech ws bri.f r.d d -a t wih the general issues of the catnpai?n- At Geore-tuwn. the me'-'ite w he-d in the pubiic square across the 'r- et fr. ra the curt htuse in the rear of which sto-d a conspicuously painted post, whicit. un der the laws of Delaware, is u-ed as a wninDir.jr" yort. At that point Mr. Bryan sp'iiie for kbout forty minutes, giving ids special attention to the interests cf the f -rmrs, of wh"m the audience was larg ' lv composed, in the beg-innina the aud ience aopeared quite coid. but it aiur nard wanned up considerably and ti e p p.ause was bJtu frequent and general to ward the ciose cf the speech. isegionir g his speech at Georgetown, Mr. Ervan sail: . "The voter in Delaware this year has a responsibility that seldom comes to a ww in ant- courstrv. f..r this year we have issues at stake mere in p r.a' t than j anv which the people have pafse-1 ju'!- j ment tiwm in a ger.erattei tr.d added to j that r--p -r.sio : . t -. . borne in c rrirr.,-n v.

Addressing himself to the agricultural community. Mr. Bryan said that if he farmers could arrange some way so that a Republican farmer as not the victim of a trust then the Republican farmer rn.ght be indifferent to the sufferings of his Democratic neighbors. "But." he continued, "if you think a Re publican fsrmer can escape ji: you trv it. Det some Republican farmer go into the store to buy sugar, and. when thev want to eharee him more, let him just tell the merchant that he is a Re publican: that he is the best friend the trust has: that the trust cuid r.ot live but for him. and then see if he does not have t . pav an increased price. The merchant will tell him that the trust is like the Lord in one respect, that it is no respector of persons, and a Republican has to pay ju.it hke arvbody else." Mr. Bryan at Milford spoke at length of the trust's and twit stror.g grounds in sup port of an income tax. declaring that su h a tax was more just than a levy n;. n iand. The tax upon land alone must be paid whether the land produces ar.ythmit or not. but no tax on income couid b5 collected unless uiere was an income oa which to base it. Mr. En-an made his speech at H.irrir r ton frjm the rear platform of his private car. A stand had been erected for him a few hundred feet away from the railway station, but he declined to go to the st.i n 1, avir,e that his time wa. brief and he thought his energies could be better ex pended in talking than in going to and from the platform. "I am trying to- do all the good I can," he said, "and I am doing a., much as y-'J could expect one person to do."
