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.
Railway Magnate's Presence In Chi

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

discussed rates and traffic organizations
DOUBLING ICE HOUSES.
Rock Island to Make Eoom For Har

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

will accordingly be p-jt up by that roai

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

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

Printed lists of Questions
Thrown Into His Carriage.
TTtica, N. 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
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
"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
"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,
"Because the man or boy who takes
the opposite course shows himself either
to be or about to be a thoroughly dis-
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

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
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
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,
"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
"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
On the fifth question, relative to pay
ing the obligations of this government "in
silver or gold, if elected president, he
"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.
"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

people wer c : i-T-kt;it'-n at the r.iwi

train p'jiied into that piace. and wni.e
those who were there listened with at

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

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
"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." He re
ferred very briefly to the question of
trusts and "also to the subject of expan
sion. The audiences both at Milford and Har
rington were large and quite et r-"'-it!T.
Mr. Bryan had an exceii-nt u!i.-r- at
Dover, where he sr- 1 r about ur- -quarters
of an hour. The crow : w j t t
4 i.iti-.n was manifested by frequeat out
bursts of up;.
Mr. Bryi-.tj as:, tin ad-lres-ed .-n-.- !f
the farmers of his atwitcrice. and among
oth' - thirsts said to them:
"Why should a farmer in Dclam-nr. vote
