ROOT DELAYED. The Charleston Overdue at Lota- Heavy Fog on Coast. Lota, Chill, Aug. 30.— A heavy mist hangs over the coast this morning. The Charleston, with Secretary Root en board, has not yet been sighted. The cruiser waa due to arrive here yesterday from Punta Arenas. The fog apparently delayed the progress of the warship. The plan, when tho Charleston left Punta Arenas, was to come through Smith's Channel, and as the passage is difficult for such large ships the delay may have been there. The Chilian Minister for Foreign Affairs, Antonio Huneus, and th© American Minister. Mr. Hicks, with the recep tion committee from Santiago, are here. CITY (rUOWISG RAPIDLY. Will Be Three Times as Big in 1940, Says Statistician. By 1940, or maybe even earlier, the popula tion of the greater New York will be three times what it is now, or, in round numbers, will be twelve millions, according to a computation made by Dr. W. H. Guilfoy, Registrar of Rec ords to the Department of Health. According to the same authority, the city's population will be doubled by 1927. Dr. Guilfoy has based his estimates on the state census of 1905 and the federal census of 1900. These show that the growth of the city annually Is 3.15 per cent compounded. On June 1, 190.". the population of New York City was 4.014,304; on June 1. 1910, it should be 4.700.442; on September 23. 1927, there should be 8.028,606 persons living within the city limits, and on October 12. 1940, there should be 12,042,912. if the growth continues at the rate it has In the last half decade. But the chance that this huge total will bo reached considerably sooner Is great, because the death rate Is continually decreasing. For the five years 1900-"<»s the average death rate per thousand was 19.40. while for the year ending June 1. 190*5, it was only about 18.00 per thousand. If this last rate is maintained or Is bettered, as seems probable, there would be a gain In population of 1.40 or more per thousand. This is not taken into consideration In Dr. Guilfoy's estimate. This would mean that the doubling of the city's population would be achieved at least a year earlier than stated. ASK $500,000 FROM V. R. R.

AUGUST 31. 1906.-FOUETEEN PAGES.-^.^S^.^ PRICE TOKEE CENTS. \n- iM.-yw WF[.< r.MKP RY ACTING MAYOR M'GOWAN Governor Folk stands at the left of Mr. McGowan, and Tom Johnson is at the extreme right PRINCIPAL POINTS MADE BY MR. BRYAN. Our nation has lost prestige, rather than gained it, by our tx.n f r,^nt n c<Mon, a S rr. A tour through the Philippine Islands has riqrp<-n?d the conviction tfttfl wi should ose no time m announcing our purpose to deal with the Filipinos as we dealt with the Cubans. | r-r.i-n m-— — n. need than before c* the -np-rtar -of a chnnge in the method of elect ing United States Senators. The income tax, which some in our country have denounced as a socialistic attack on wealth, has, I am pleased to report, the indorsement of the most conservative countries in the Old World. The struggle to secure an eight-hour day is an international struggle, and it is su~ to be settled in favor of the workingman's contention. I have already reached the conclusion that the railroads partake so much of the nature of a monopoly that they must ultimately become public property and managed by public officials in the interest of the whole community, in accordance with the well defined theory that public ownership is necessary where competition is impossible. Believing, however, that the operation of all the railroads by the federal government would result in a centralization which would all but obliterate state lines, I prefer to see only the trunk lines operated by the federal govern ment and the local lines by the several state governments. Our opponents have derived not only partisan pleasure, but also partisan advantage, from the division in our party by the money question. They ought not, therefore, to begrudge us the satisfaction that we find in the fact that unexpected conditions have removed the cause of our differences snd permit us to present a unitsd front on present issues. The unlocked for and unprecedented increase in the production of gold had brought a victory to both the advo cates of gold and the advocates of bimetallism — ths former keeping the gold standard which they wanted and the latter securing the larger volume cf money for which they contended. We who favor bimetallism are satisfied with our victory if the friends of monometalism are satis fied with theirs, and we csn invite them to the contest of zesl and endurance in ths effort to restore to the people the rights which have bben gradually taken from them by the trusts. The great corporations (is net contribute their money tc ■s*"?' party except for immunity expressly promisod or clearly implied. The President has recommended legislation on this subject, but so far his party has failed to respond. I hope that the Democratic party will not only challenge the Republican party to bring forward effective legislation on this subject, but will set mn example by rsfusing to receive campaign contributions from corporations, and by opening the books so that every contributor of any considerable sum may be known to the public before election. I congratulate President Roosevelt upon the steps which he has taken to enforce the anti trust laws, and my gratification is not lessened by the fact th.it he has followed the Demo cratic rather than the Republican platform in every advance he has made. Socialism's strength is in its attacks upon ths evils the existence of which is confessed. Its weakness is that it would substitute a new disease— if not a worse one — for the disease from which we suffer. BRYANITES MOB "COP." Well Known Nebraskans Don't Rel ish "Move On" Order. When whiit they considered a too officious Tenderloin policeman objected to the presence in front of the Victoria Hotel of a group of the Nebraskans here to welcome Bryan, early this morning, and told Dave O'Brien, a big Omaha candy manufacturer, ex-alderman and real estate owner, to "move on," the entire party took up the cudgels for O'Brien. Fifty angry Westerners rushed out of the hotel and surrounded the policeman, threaten ing to "wipe him out" if he touched O'Brien. Mayor Dahlman of Omaha, armed with the rawhide lariat with which he lassoed Mr. Bryan, defied the policeman to touch O'Brien. • "I'm Jim Dahlman," he shouted, "and I'll see that no New York copper touches a hair on the head of Dave O'Brien or any other Nebraskan in this bunch. Don't you dare lay your hand on him. for if you do I'll Just wipe you out and the rest of us will help." "You bet we will," chorused the other West erners. "What kind of a bluff are you trying on me?" demanded the policeman. low, don't you say another ward, but move along out of here," replied Dahlman, waving his hand at the policeman, as if to brush him away. "None of you fresh New York cops are going to touch Dave O'Brien. He's on* of the biggest and best men In Omaha, and if you touch him we'll wipe up the sidewalk with you." The policeman shrank a little. Just then De tective Walsh, of the Tenderloin station, came along and sized up the situation. He called the patrolman aside, whispered a few words of ad vice, and the patrolman went off on his beat. Mayor Dahlman and Dave O'Brien led the party back into the cafe, and for some time thereafter the waiters were kept running. HEAVY SHOCK IN ('II IU.

Favors the Contra! of Trunk Lines by the National Government — Other Railroads by States— Congratulates the President. William J. Bryan received a splendid home coming welcome at Madison Square Garden last night, from 12.000 to 13,000 people taking part in it. most of them waiting, through the sweltering heat, to hear Mr. Bryan finish his long speech. Mayor Tom L. Johnson of. Cleve land, chairman ,of the meeting, said that he welcomed him "two years in advance of his election as President." This pleased the crowd. Th?re area hand clapping and cheering for every one, v but . mostly for Mr. \ Bryan. ' '. Every one know it was his night. Also' many * persons ' knew that he had sent word in advance that his speech last night would be the "effort of his life," and that intensified the interest. . When the Cleveland Mayor told Mr. Bryan how the people loved him, and introduced him, there was a mighty shout and a waving of flags 1 hat lasted for seven minutes. Men and ■women stood on tho chairs and cheered. Mr. Bryan stepped to the front of the temporary stage, with a palmleaf fan la one hand and a scrap of paper containing the headings of his address in the other. He kept the fan going intermittently all through h!s speech. Mr. Bryan frankly admitted that bimetallism was dead as a political issue. He said that the large production of gold had killed it. He came pretty close to advocating. compulsory arbitra tion He praised President R«.osevclt for what he had done toward curt ins the trusts, and cen sured the Republican party for not passing all the legislation asked for by the President. He said he wanted his nation to be foremost as a peacemaker. He declared that the income tax was desirable, and he predicted that some day a constitutional amendment would be passed providing for an income tax. and it would be in ! such shape that neither one Judge nor nine j judges would be able to build a barricade j against its adoption. He castigated the Senate j and advocated the direct election of Senators by | the people. Mr. Bryan was in good voice, but the hot night j was a little too much for the audience. Mr. ! Bryan had not been speaking twenty minutes before the audience began to thin out. from around the edges, beyond the reach of his voice. Those near the platform listened attentively. I applauding his emphatic points. The snugging of outgoing feet sounded portentous The same \ thing happened in 18tX». and from that hour a revulsion of feeling was noticeable throughput , the East. The gathering at the Garden last night was perhaps the greatest assemblage of yearners and, ' anticipators in American political history. ' Bryan's home folks were there, yearning with ; the rest. Ten years ago Mr. Bryan's home folks | were staying tight at home, and at this time of I the year they were attending to corn husking. (• In fear of foreclosures of farm mortgages piled ' up during four years of Democratic admlnlstra- ' tlon. After ten years of Republican "oppression" I they ere able to travel thrc? thousand mfles in I Pullman car?, stocked "with red liquors and j Havana cigars, put up In New York at the best ; hotels, eat three meals a day. ride on auto mobiles, and last ni^ht. as these same home folk* ! were yelling for Bryan. "in thefr respective ■ 'pockets were fat rolls . of , Uncle Sam's yellow- j backs. - Last night they fairly ached with pros- ' perity, and they were there to be treated by Dr. j Bryan, who prescribed much as he did ten years i ago. Not In many a long day will New York again 1 witness such a gathering of lemon and lotos eaters, Mr. Bryan was home again! And it was j ]so different from two years ago. when he re- '■ turned from the first trip! Then Mr. Bryan hired ■ his own hall. The gorged and swollen plutocrats ; In control of the state Democracy stayed away from his oratorical spread. "It was to laugh.** ! That was in the spring of 1904. Last night the | shackled minions cf mammon, with hands over ! mouths and faces In • the dust, humbled them- j selves as they submissively murmured. "Behold j the conqueror!** \ /- " ; Democratic pomp and circumstance were there. There were eighteen United States Sen- t ators and , ex-Senators, and twenty Democratic ! Governors and ex-Governors. There were Phari- ' i sees. Republicans and sinners. The political i Ptolemies rubbed elbows with the proletariat. 1 All the bis Democratic groundhogs were out. j i The sun was shining! I What mattered It that'the great silver prophet, j I after consorting with the prophets of the Old i 1 World, came back with a golden speech. The I thing Important was that ho was back, and with his return there was a vista of Democratic I postcJltces and coTloctorbhtrs. * and a " cranchlnjr I of the bones of the octopuses said devil Csies. and the getting of something for nothing, and: the casting down of the enemy. And what a flower garden It was! There was the New York goldenrod. the Kansas sunflower and the loco weed from Texas. The tariff re form orchids nodded in the oratorical breeze to the night blooming flowers from the -Bowery— the kind that blow when the heat of day is over —and these and others mingled their fragranco with , the /Jerome, perennial and the Hearst ■horseradish, and the whole was as the rt-ai ;«£•'" Sharon, and goodly to the nostrils of the Iclvi-, bods and Absaloms. It was a mixed company— mixed In its politt rl ideas as well as in Its divergent personalities. It was a free show, except to those who pa »Tt> each for boxes. The Wall street coupon clipper was there, fresh from his nefarious practice ». and he jostled against the truck driver, who still gloated at the recollection of ho-.v an hour befo;a he had "held up" the car traffic in Broadway ty exchanging Billingsgate with the motorman. In the throng was the miner from Arizona, tie whalebacker from Duluth, the lumberman from Louisiana or the resin belt of Georgia, the fruit grower from the Ozarks. the grafter and th« socialist, the man from Central Park West, fresh, from his bath, and the walking noisome pest ilence from the "'Broken Shutter Association" in "Big Tim" Sullivan's Bowery district. It was a free show, and all sorts and conditions of men and women were on hand to see the loss distance Presidential sprinter in this third at tempt to beat his record. • Hearst was at the rail, taking notes. Hearst, the man with political dynamite in his coattaCs, with a habit, lately contracted, of treading en Bryan's toes and then saying ho didn't mean Ml Hearst was there, wearing Jerome's old "daTm with the bosses" clothes. Jerome said so." It was not a bad fitting suit at that, but It looked dull last night in comparison with the fajsgil regalia of the imperial Bryan. Twelve thousand persons, many at them women, were seated by 7 o'clock, and an hoar later not a vacant seat was to be seem. Too heat in the Garden, once the crowd had assem bled, was so great that a large portion of the glass roof was pushed back. leaving only the stars as a canopy. Tha galleries were Jammed early to their utmost capacity. Hundreds of policemen were on duty to act In case of emer gency, and fifty firemen were detailed at va rious stations in the slant structure. At 8 o'clock, when Mr. Bryan had not arrived, Harry W. Walker, on behalf of the Commercial Travellers- Anti-Trust League, called the assem blage to order, introducing Governor Folk of Missouri, who said: We come to voice the love and faith of minis -3 In the great leader who has again set foot upon his native millions who lova Mm becaMSS hi* hands are clean, his heart !s pure, and his son* has not been touched or tainted with the sears of unearned sold.
