NO 57 ICAN BRYAN'S CONCEPTIONS OF THE PRESIDENCY His Notion 'of It Will Be Presented Through Colliers For One Thing, He Assures the Country That the Pres ident On Account of Checks Upon Him is Less Dan gerous' Than is Commonly' Supposed. Xcw York, July 13. Willir.m J. Bryan has written an article entitled "My Conceptions of the Presidency," for the July 18 issue of Colliers Week ly. "The president's power for good or for harm is often- overestimated. Government checks the balances, the power is distributed among different departments, and each works with the co-operation of others. The influence f the president over legislation is limited; he shares the responsibility with a large number of the people's representatives. "Kven in the enforcement of the law he is hedged about by restrictions. He acts through an attorney general, (whose appointment must be approved by the senate) and offenders against the law must be prosecuted in the courts, so here again the responsibility is divided. In making important appointments he must consult the senate of necessity, and is compelled to exercise care and discretion. Most important requisite of president, as in other officials, is that his sympathy shall be with tlie whole people, rather than with any fraction of te popula tion." "The president must have a knowl edge of public questions and the ability to discern between the true and false; he must be able to analyze conditions and datect sophistry an art that is al ways employed by those who seek un fair advantages. "The peresidency is the highest posi tion in the world and the occupant is an important factor in all national matters. GOSART" ON A TANK IS A GUARANTEE We are always busy because we do It right.

Seaborn Wright, member of the Georgia legis lature and a leading advocate of pro hibition, who has been mentioned as the possible nominee at the prohibi tion convention now in session at Columbus, Ohio, in a statement given to the Associated Press today, says he cannot accept the nomination should It be given tohim. o AMERICANS AFFECTED BY ENGLISH WEATHER First Day's Performances in Olympic Games Not Quite Satisfactory. V London, July 13. Rains interfered badly today with the opening of the fourth international Olympic games by the king at the Stadium at Shepard's Buh. The attendance fell short of expectations. In some of the events the American contestants appeared af fected by adverse weather conditions, but in other events, particularly the ir00 meter race, in which the greatest interest was centered, the men were up to form and twice during the aft ernoon the record for the distance was smashed. Melvln W. Shepard of the Irish American Athletic Club of New York first accomplished the trick, when in the second heat, pressed by his teairv mate, J. P. ilalstead of the New York Athletic Club, he ran the distance in the splendid time of 4:05, just 2-5 of a second faster than was niade by J. D'. Lightbody of the University of Chicago at the Olympic games in St. Louis in l'.t04. The two Americans in this heat beat a number of good men, including G. Butterfield, the English four-mile champion, who finished a bad third. J. P. Sullivan of the Irish-American Athletic Club and Lightbody, who were first and second, respectively, in the first heat of this event, took longer to cover the distance, but they were not pressed, and doubtless could have done better if necessary. Meadows of Canada set out to make the pace, but Lightbody went to the front and seemed a likely winner until Sullivan, with a fine burst of speed, passed him a few yards from the tape. The best performance of the day, however, was that of M. G. Hallows, an Oxford blue, who cut a full two seconds off the record, much to the surprise of everybody, as Hallows al ways has boon at his best at tlsree miles, and 1500 metres was considered short for him. He is now thought to be the most serious rival by the Americans In the finals, which will be run tomorrow. Through their defeat by Shepard and Sullivan, Halstnad and Lightbody failed to qualify. S. L. Coe of the University of Michigan made a strong bid forvietory in tire fourth heat, but was unable to keep up with E. Loney of England, although his time was particularly bright. Coe finished second. Another American. F. II. Riley of the Irish-American Athletic Club ran unplaced in this heat, the third, which was that In which Hallows made his record.

GOVERNMENT OF HONDURAS Making Head Against the Revolutionists Washington and Mexico Laboring for Peace In Central America. Washington, July 13 Official ad vices which reached the state de partment today confirm press reports that the Honduran government forces have retaken the small town of Gracias and that they are about to move to the -more important city of Choluteca. To this extent the gov ernment apiears to have the advan tage. On the other hand Honduras is menaced from the northern border. On the Carrlbean sea border, there are continually reiterated reports of attacks on Puerto Cortez, while Gen eral Lee Christmas, whom the state department officials call a soldier of fortune, is reported to be in the country just a few miles from Puer to Cortez. The force mentioned in one of the dispatches as being on a small island about eighteen miles distant from Puerto Cortes, is pre sumably the one from which an at tack is feared. The state department is being fully advised of the situation in the whole Central American district, but Mr. Dodge, minister to Honduras and Salvador, explains taht reliable in formation is difficult to obtain. The t'nited States and Mexico still con tinue to use their best efforts to keep peace in that part of the world but they have gone to the extent thus far of only offering friendly mediation. The American cruiser Albany is now on the way from Pan ama to Amapala, the Pacific coast port of Honduras. Minister Dodge telegraphed the state department confirming the As sociated Press dispatches that Hon duras had made a formal complaint before the Central American court at Cartage, Costa Rica, charging Guate mala and Salvador with non-observance of neutrality under the Central American peace convention. Infor mation has also reached the depart ment that Nicaragua complains that Guatemala and Salvador have ren dered assistance to the Honduran revolutionists and that Nicuraguan refugees are allied with them. MOTHfR-IIWAW AVENGES HER HUSBANDS MURDER The Shooting of a New York Dentist Who Two Years Ago Tried to Kill His Father-in-law. North port, N. Y., July 13. Stand ing within a few feet of the spot where, little more than two years ago he shot and killed his father-in-law. Dr. James Waddell Simpson, a dentist of New York, was snot and perhaps mortally wounded today by his mother-in-law, Mrs. Bart ley T. Horner, the woman he made a wid ow. Dr. Simpson's wife, from whom he had been estranged for many months, was near when the shot was fired, but she did not witness the shooting. Upon learning that it was her husband who was wounded, she refused to go near him, and Simp son had to crawl to a house 200 feet away to have his wounds attended to. Mrs. Horner was later arrested and held in $5,000 bail, while Simpson, with the assistance of two friends, made his way to Roosevelt hospital. New York. The bullet lodged in his liver and an immediate operation was lerformed. The doctors said to night that Simpson has only a small chance of recovery. Statements by Simpson and Mrs. Horner as to the shooting disagree. The dentist says he received word that his wife intended to sue him for a divorce and he went to the Horner home to talk with her about it. He says he rang the door bell and upon receiving no response he peered through a door pane. He saw Mrs. Horner ,he says, and called to her to open the door. Then Simp son says Mrs. Horner grabbed up a revolver and shot him. A second shot was fired at him, he declares, but the bullet went wide. Mrs. Horner does not deny that she did the shooting, but she claims justification. Through her lawyer, Rowland Miles, she said that Simpson several times had called at the house and his visits were unwelcom. When he came today she says she ordered him away and when he refused to go she took up the revolver and shot at him. Mrs. Simpson, the prisoner's daugh ter, qualified as a bondsman and se cured the release of her mother. The shooting of Bartlett Horner by Simpson aroused the countryside in December, 1905. When the dentist was put to trial his wife took the stand against him Mrs. Horner also gave damaging evidence against him. Simpson said he was going through the manual of arms with a shotgun when accidentally he shot his father-in-law. After a verdict of acquittal Simpson resumed the practice of den tistry.

From Washington, July 13. A statement was received today by Acting Secre tary Newberry of the navy department, that makes a showing for the Atlantic fleet now enroute to the orient, which the naval officers regard as remark able as it is gratifying. After the fleet sailed from the west coast a wireless message was sent Mr. Newberry giving the number of men absent from each vessel without leave. They included not deserters alone, but what are known as stragglerr, men who overstayed their leaves and failed to join their ships in time to sail. The total number of such absentees is only Il'9 out of nearly 13,00 on the fleet. LAW'S LONG ARM. Reaches Across the Continent and Seizes Cook. Portland. July 13.

BIG BUNCH OF PROMISED The Labor Leader Turns Over the 3,000, 000 of the Federation Speculation Concerning the Campaign Manager Nar rowed Down to Three Men but Pointing More Di rectly to Cain pa ii ot Michigan. Lincoln, July 131. Samuel Gompers, president of the American Federation of Labor, and inferentially the head of 3,000,000 voters of organized labor has pledged the affiliated federation to the support of Bryan in the coming presi dential campaign. In political circles here today that announcement over shadowed all other events, even the arrival of John W. Kern, vice presi dential nominee. Reports gained circulation that the labor leader would speak on the plat form, but he made no such announce ment. At present it is believed that there will be no need for Gompers' services in an oratorical sense. Gomp ers does not expect to be called upon to speak publicly in the campaign. The republican convention, he as serts, ignored the demands of labor, and the democrats acknowledged them in their platform. His course is clear; he will do what is demanded of him in the interests of labor as best expressed in the platform adopted at Denver. Chairman of the Indiana committee, Jackson, after talking with Bryan, de clared that Indiana would go for Bry an by 10.0110 votes. Bry an will make a speech at Chicago on Labor day. Aside from this single date, the candidate for the presidency had made no plans. Interest today naturally centered in the visit here tomorrow of members of the new national committee. Dr. Hall national committeeman from Nebras ka, yesterday stated that the chair manship of the committee lay among James, of Kentucky; Campau, of Michigan; Lamb, of Indiana; and At wood, of Kansas. Today speculation on the subject narrowed to Carnpau and James, to the latter largely, be cause Bryan expressed much ad miration for his political and intellec tual qualities, to Campau because of his admitted business ability. David H. Francis, is out of it by hs own plea. Though the stories of his con nection with Standard Oil are untrue, the libels are sufficient to prevent his running for the office. Current gossip has narrowed the contest to Campau, of Michigan; and Iimb, of Indiana. Neither has ex- For Sale I will sell my six half lots In the Capitol Addition for 8600.

Campau had been defeated for the national sommlttee man ship from the Wolverine state, but his business ability is undisputed. I-amb is credited with a marked in fluence in his home state, and with peculiar abilities which make a succes fui campaign manager. No man in America is more ad mired by Bryan than Ollie James, of Kentucky, yet James in all probability will not be named as chairman of the committee, for he himself has denied any dequisites that make for a suc cessful campaign manager. On other hand, Campau is recognized as hav ing all the qualifications of a manager of political warfare. Campau is not an orator of noted attainment but the is a business man whose merits have not yet been attacked. o COUNTERFEIT PLANT CAPTURED AT GLOBE A Clean-Up Begun by Secret Service Officer at Douglas Completed.
