tried to look as If he believed this tale
himself. "
With characteristic self-effacement
j I*carst had not attempted to negotiate
with" Ryan, had demanded no pledges
of any. kind and had received none —
possibly because Ryan did not wish to
add a mercenary alloy to the pure metal
of Hearst's philanthropy. Despite the
adoption of the Ryan fragment: of the
republican party by. Hearst, : Ryan said,
rthe party which he had freed from cor
poration domination and boss control
would remain as free as hmself, by
, which he may have meant as free as
any Hearst candidate could be. v
\u25a0 'Ryan did not, like to think about the
esnousalof hi 6 candidacy by Hearst as
/consequent upon his repudiation by the
' Lincoln-Roosevelt league, to .whose let
ter demanding that he desist from his
efforts to " divide the xriends of good
government he has paid no attention.
But he was positive, even solemnly «m
,phatlc, that Hearsl had not given him
'ai^y campaign money along with the
unexpected 'gift of- a journalistic frfiit
'^vhieh he" insisted had down' on St.' ~
\u25a0 • ' ; Ryan said he was going to be elected
ah a siiiion pure republican and when
,'cleoted he would" not- be. bound* to
or any other boss ty ante-elec
' ton* pledges or ante-election contribut
ions. He declined to admit that- the
• support of a newspaper ..consistently
: and persistently opposed to everything
\u25a0.republican would in any degree embar
,-rass his attempts to live up to the
Standard of republican idealism he had
;fft for himself, and. just to show his
"independence, he refused to subscribe
.;to or accept responsibility fcr -the
•.charges made against McCarthy in the
Examiner editorial, which declared that
was the man for mayor.
He accepted the wholly unexpected
and'Unbargained for support of Hearst,
-ii« confirmation of the promises .of his'
'inner self \u25a0which, he says, has com
pelled him to ignore the demands of
•the republicans who by their primary
•votes made his; betrayal of. them possi
\u25a0l>le. His Inner man has told him that
jie will, be elected mayor. The peach
secured from Hearst without money
' and without price has convinced Ryan
that the inner man has all other po
litical prophets chained to the post.
Some of Ryan's joy: bubbles over into
.a meeting of the campaign committee :
Jlield'.at his- headquarters yesterday
Afternoon. By dSnt of impassioned
oratory and frequent' references to the
"fact that regardless -of ; its character a
h-ewspaper has consented to speak, for
Jlyan, the chief boosters managed to
extract promises of an effort from, the
l jSrecinct committeemen.

The union labor county , convention
and all ; the on ; the" union

sided >overi.the: meeting.; McCarthy, was
the; principal speaker,', with -Phil ,-Knox
and ;Harry ""1.-Mulcrievy; close seconds.
The was \ spent In i 1i 1 much de
nouncing of Mayor, Taylor, his capdi-'

of : a \u25a0;" plan ,f to cement the organization
of :• the \u25a0 union i labor party by forming, a
labor league club ; in each precinct,;ln

;; McCarthy waxed warm In his ad
dress.',- .A- part -of jlt Iwas ' taken up i with
telling .what -good could be derived
from ;.the election i of a .' straight union
labor ticket. By far the greater: part
of ;lt, however, was" spent in berating,
the -, democratic ; and I good government
league parties. He said in part:
?'i l \u25a0« want ; to ) tell ; you that Just. so sure as there
Is | a heaven above |we - have those ; people licked
to : a'\u25a0 fare t thee ' well. ' But ' there -.. Is one this?
more that .we! must yet attend to. -We stand in
serious danger, of. having our victory "stolen from
under our very no3es after, we have; earned It at
the polls. "Only those, who' have been interested
In . politics ; for many. Veare can : realize through
what channels the : men ' who' make up the ' f nslon
of - the - good government and .'democratic ' tickets
will wade ,to i force their | candidates into of flee.
We must not let them get out of our sight for a
minute. Let us appoint | a sufficient number ]of
men to hold. those ballots,. by force; it necessary,
until they are coudted' and securely stowed away

would etop at nothing to steal thia election from
the. people. .
enthusiasm or heat was
well received by his audience. He was
frequently, interrupted by cheers, hand
claps or ;cries; of -"Good boy, ; Mac!" "The
name -of Dr. ; Taylor .was greeted with
a suppressed "groan by \u25a0 a few .men "in
the rear of ,:. the hall, but "outside of
this and: a hint at a- hiss when Lang
don's iname fell from .the lips of the
speaker the; crowd was a fair one and
open for: argument. -- '.
-McCarthy was; bitter In his talk
against, his opposing.' 1 candidates, but
the labor leaders who > were supporting
candidates other than himself came in
for the most 'blasting denunciations.
"The . Caseys, the Egans, the Mc-
Cabes, the McLarens and the Macar
thurs, alleged labor leaders," said Mc-
Carthy, "are false ; leaders, traitors,
men- who owe. their all to us who-put
them, where they are,' yet 'who • sel^
themselves J to a Citizens' alliance
cause. '
"Why, Kgan would not now be sup
porting^ Daniel Ryan— a man -whom I
do* not' begrudge! any support he may
secure— : were It not that Mayor Taylor,
has put him up to it. lest if he place
him in his own 'train he prove to the
world that Eagan is dominated by the
big Btlck."

with* aJengthy address. Haggerty is

residence of Leo Shields, where he will
be- a guest until his departure for
Vicksburg tomorrow. He came in on
full gallop and accompanied as he was
by. about a dozen, of his hunting com
panions, all mounted and attired in
hunting garb, the cavalcade presented
a tableau as picturesque as it was ani
: The president is slightly more
bronzed than when he entered the
wilderness from this point la day 3 ago.
but notwithstanding this fact and the
additional circumstance that his clothes
bear evidence of contact with the cane
and other brush, he was never in better
spirits in his life. :
"Yes. we got three bears," he added,
"all that we saw, and I -think that a
pretty good record. I am perfectly
satisfied.". KBBSIb
The arrival of the party brought out
the*, fact that a third bear had been
killed Friday, a year old, which was
slain by one of the Osborn brothers
when.it was in a fierce fight with the
dogs. The one bear, that was obtained
by the president . was killed Thursday
and the killing .was witnessed by one
of"., the McKlnzies and Alex Reynolds.
They agree in saying, that the. .presi
dent's bearing was~,*extre"mely sports
manlike. The ".animal had been _ chased
by the dogs for three hours, the presir
dent following all, the time. ' ".
" When' at last they canye within hear
ing the dismounted, threw, off
his . coat j and tore into the canebrake,
coming to within 20 paces of the beast.
The dogs were coming up rapidly with
the president's favorite. Rowdy, in the
lead, and bruin had stopped to bite his
defiance Into them when the president
sent a bullet from his 45-70 rifle after
It* The shot \u25a0went. through the animal's
lungs and would have been fatal, but
with the little life left in it the bear
turned upon the dogs. The president
saved the pack and lodged a second
bullet between the shoulders which
broke the creature's neck.' .
.The; president was so rejoiced over
his good fortune that he embraced each
of his. companions. They were equally
happy, and' in .the exuberance of. the
moment Reynolds went to the extent". of
tellings the president that he, the presi
dent, was "no tenderfoot." The presi
dent ; responded by presenting him with
a ?20,noteL Yesterday there was .com
paratively little. hunting because of the
condition of .the dogs, of which
encountered a drove of wild hogs, which
are more ferocious than bear. One of
the best dogs. of the Osborn "pack was
killed outright by a big boar.
The president will leave here tomor
row at 10 o'clock and will spend four
hours in the afternoon at Vicksburg.
He will arrive at Dtjta, directly across
the. river, from Vicksburg, at 1 'o'clock
tomorrow afternoon. \ ,
