Bitimio, X. Y Juno 23. Two hundred
excursionists from Buffalo wero dropped
into the swift current of Niagara River
at Eagle Pork, Grand Island, about S
o'clock to-night. A steamboat dock col
lapsed, Eight bodies have been re
covered. The victims were members of Amherst
Lodge, Order of Foresters. They had
gone ,o Eagle Park this morning 5oo
strong. Half of the party had been safely
returned. The first news of tho accident
reached the telophono central at Grand
Island from Mrs. Miller, owner of Eagle
Park. She was hysterical, screamed that
the dock was gone and two hundred were
in the water.
Then she dropped the telephone re
ceiver, since whlcn time It has leen tm-
possible to communicate with Eagle j
Pnrk direct. Later reporta to the Erie
county mdicnl examiners say that eight 1
bodies hid been recovered. The polio-1

had been seriously hurt. At 12:2(1 n

people had been drowned.

The current at this point Is very strong.
The bouts, returning for second loads,
whistled a warning to the excursionists
to get ready to board, and the excur
sionist left the park nnd ran down to
the pier. They crowded out to make
sure of getting seats on the beiats.

lUi.TtMonf, Juno 2J. Shortly boforo
midnight n story wns circulating In tho
corridors of tho Uelvedere Hotel of nn
alleged row, amounting almost to fisti
cuffs, between William J. Hrynn nnd
I'nltcd States Senator-elect James K.
Vnrdaman of Mississippi. When Mr.
Hryan's attention wbb culled to tho mat
ter ho fronted It lightly nnd Inquired
what could have given rise to such a
story. Me explained that Mr. Vardn
mnn had called upon him and that they
had had 11 very pleasant talk nnd thnt
Mr. Vnrdamnn bad talked with Mrs.
Hrynn for half nn hour or more.
It was learned from nnother source
thnt earlier In the evening Vnrdamnn
had explained to some of his friends
thnt ho Intended to call on Mr. Urynn,
presuming on their long friendship, nnd
make a personal appeal to him to drop
his fight on Judge Parker for tempor
nry chairman In the Interest of har
mony. It appears that Mr. Vardaman
mndo his appeal to Mr. Hryan. but that
ho was received so coldly thnt he felt
n sense of personal Injury nnd picked
up his hat and started to leave the
Mr. Bryan followed him nnd asked
him to return and the matter wob
patched up and Mr. Vardaman re
malned quite n while In Mr. Bryan's
room talking with Mr. nnd Mrs. Hryan.
This seems to have been the only
foundation for the story.

John R. Dos Paasos, the lawyer, has sent
to the elelegatea to tho Baltimore con
vention an open letter suggesting that
this resolution lie passed:
Itccotmtztng that tho delays, expenses
and uncertainties In the administration of
thn law bring the) Judiciary and bar into
criticism nnd result In unjust discrimination
air.ilnst the poor, we pledge the Democratic
party to advocate such proper measures
as will insure radical reforms In the present

As an alternative Mr Dos Passos sug
gestd this:
Hocogiil.ing that tho delays, expenses

Third Tarty Complicates Situa

Haltimohk. June 23. Just three hours
after William J. Bryan had been wel
comed to Baltimore with a great hurrah
to-day ho made it known that ho had
decidod to nccept the challenge! of the
conservatives on tho question of making
Alton B. Parker temporary chairman.
Mr. Bryan also left no doubt In the
minds of tho reporters whom ho received
for an Interview thnt ho would not refuso
another Presidential nomination.
Ono reporter asked bluntly: "Would
you accept the nomination?" He replied:
"Now, would you nsk n young lady tho
question whether she would accept a
proposal of marriage in case one came
to her?"
Again he replied: "Now you go get tho
nomination if you can and bring it to mo
and see what I do with it."
Sn Compromise 1 llrnn.
Mr. Bryan's expressed attitude townrd
the chairmanship in tuns thut ho will use
all of his power and political adroitness
to bring about tho defeat of Alton I..
Parker unless Charles F. Murphy nnd
those who are backing him in support of
Mr. Parker decide at tho last minute to
make concession.
Strong pressure is being brought to
bear to-night upon both Bryan and I'm
opnsing forces to find somo linrmoniou
solution of this situation. Bryan, how
over, deciineel absolutely to listen to nny
suggestion that proposes Parker as tin '
temporary presiding officer of the con
vention. Charcs F. .Murphy nnd other leaders
who are standing behind Parker seemed
Just ns determined to force his can
didacy, though the rank nnd tile hnvo
been making a tremendous demand for
Mum Fnlla.
Lewis Nixon, who hnd heen travel
ling nil evening between Hrynn nnd
Murphy In nn effort to patch up nn
ngreement, gave up the Job nt mid
night. It seems certain now thut, ns
ono leader put It, there will be n first
clnss fight n tight to tho finish be
tween the progressive nnd conserva
tive wings.
Mr. Nlson, the only man who con
ferred iilone with Hryan, found tho
Nobruskan determined not to reced
from his fight itcalnst Parker. Nixon
met with equal stubbornness from the
other side. Ho will try his hand agnln
to-morrow ns peiuvmnkor, hut with
out much hope of success. Tho lust
word from the Murpliy-I'arkor-Shco-han
conference to-nlght was that Judgo
Parker would not withdraw.
Tho light ener the temporary chair
manship has practically brought tho
booming of tho candidates to u stand
still nnd very littlo probably will be
done In the wuy of proselytising anion;
delegates nnd making trades nntl dealt
until somo light Is shod on this ques
tion. Tho Wondrow Wilson people by tylns
themselves to Mr. Hrynn have staked
the Governor's political prospectn on
tho outcome of the chairmanship tight If
It Is carried before tho convention.
Ono fact has, however, como to tho
surface. That Is that Champ Clark's
chnnces for tho nomination depend
chiefly upon tho seriousness of the
Hryan menace. If Bryan's nomination
seems nt nil likely Mr. Murphy will,
it Is believed, throw Now York' delc
gntcs to Clnrlt In order to bring about
tho cnmmonor'H overthrow. Murphy
will undoubtedly hnvo the assistance of
Thomns Tnggnrt und other leaders In
such n movement.
Charles Y. Murphy and other loaders
who nro standing behind Parker out
wardly seemed just ns determined to
forco his cnndldai'y. but there were indl
e'litions thnt they might Imi obliged to
yield to tho tremendous demand for
harmony from the rank and fllo of thti
If there was nny douht thnt Bryan
had designs upon n feiurth nomination it
was dissipated soon after his arrival.
By his evasive answers to questions on
