COMMONER, HOWEVER, FINDS MORE TO COMMEND IN PRES ENT PRESIDENT. Lincon, Neb., Sept. 4.—William Jen nings Bryan addressed a crowd which filled the vast auditorium at the fair grounds this evening to overflowing, and for more than two hours held bis audience while he scored Theodore Roosevelt and President Taft. The crowd cheered at every opportunity. Declaring that Governor Johnson is the biggest man in the progressive movment, the speaker launched into his attack on Roosevelt by saying: "I would far rather see Johnson president and Roosevelt vice president, and I would spend the rest of my time praying that Johnson would not die." The speaker's objection to Taft was that he "Is too distrustful of the peo ple, and that Roosevelt is too trustful of himself. He had never known a man, the speaker said, who has such overpowering confidence in himself. Mr. Roosevelt," Mr. Bryan con tinued, "is now claiming to be the leader in the progressive movement, when his progressive convictions are only wto years old. I have been a pro gressive for 20 years and know all of the leaders in the progressive and re actionary movements. Roosevelt has never, until in this campaign, been among the advocates of tue former movement. Never during the time he was president did he champion the direct election of senators, and during th time he was president he refused to bring it before congress in a mes sage. He did not try to prevent the voting down of a plank on this sub ject in the convention of 1908, and only became converted to this view two years ago. "Mr. Roosevelt's speeches on the in come tax question are like the visits of angels—few and far between. He has only favored the initiative and referendum for two years and five years ago he sent Mr. Taft to Okla homa to talk against this reform. Roosevelt is for railroad regulation by the federal government, but was not so until after 1904 and after two dem ocratic platforms had declared for this reform. "Roosevelt's position on the trust question is farther from right than is Mr. Taft's. He would take from the states their right to regulate by legis lation and put it in the hands of the federal government. He approves the Standard Oil decision and approves the use of the word 'reason.' " Mr. Bryan spoke of his previous de feats being caused by the aid of pow erful corporations and expressed the belief that it is Mr. Roosevelt's pur pose to put these corporations under the direct control of the president, so they will be compelled to support him thereafter in the effort to perpetuate his power. "If the president," he said, "knew the common people as he knows those from whom he takes advice, he would know that they are sacrificing more for their country than are the men who are managing his campaigns and telling him what to do. "More reforms have taken place dur ing the Taft administration than dur ing any other of recent years. Yet the president cannot claim credit for any one of these. Do you know why they call Taft a standpatter? It is be cause he stands still and lets the peo ple pass him." CIVIL WAR VET DEAD. General McArthur Drops Dead While in Act of Delivering An Address. Milwaukee, Wis., Sept. 5.—While re calling the deeds of the Twenty-fourth Wisconsin volunteers In the Atlanta campaign, Lieut.-Gen. Arthur MacAr thur, U. S. A., retired, dropped dead following an apoplectic stroke at the reunion of the regiment known as the chambe rof commerce" regiment, in the University building tonight Within a few minutes after the venerable general fell to the speaker's platform, Edwin B. Parsons, a captain and member of the regiment, suffered a paralytic stroke on the right side from the shock of seeing his comrade fall, and had to be carried from the place. The old soldiers attending the re union—there were about 100—failed to grasp the situation for some mo ments, and when they rushed to the side of their fallen commander, they found him dead. They tried to arouse him, but the pallor of his face told them it was useless, that the general had fought his last fight and lost. One by one the old soldiers turned away. They drew handkerchiefs from their pockets and wiped their eyes, then knelt In reverence by the side of their stricken commander. "Our Father who art In heaven,' began one of the veterans, and as the words left his lips the others joined In, a somber gathering transformed from one of merrymaking but a few minutes before. At the conclusion of the prayer, one of the soldiers took an American flag from the wall and spread the Stars and Stripes over the dead commander. Slowly the soldiers left the hall. The reunion had ended. GOLD PRODUCTION. Fergus Stands Third Among Counties of State for Month of August.
