ARMY RETIRING BOARD
i Vanwkht, Ohio, August 10-Wm
Jennings Bryan was at it. early this
morning, and bad hardly left off hand
shaking after leaving Chicago : before
he began it again. He did not get
much sleep last night, as people were
inn t.r him hot or pan rtsvliirhC and
dawn, and although be went to bis
berth shortly after midnight, he was
routed out between 1 and 2 o'clock to
see an immense crowd at Valparaiso,
lad. He was again and again cheered.
The crowd wanted a speech, but Bryan
told them be could not talk at that hour
of the morning. Columbia City was
reached at 4:40, ana another crowo
was present. There was no lack of
enthusiasm because of trie early nour.
At Ft. Wayne, this morning, more
than a thousand were waiting for the
Bryan train when it arrived at 6
. o'clock. Mr. Bryan has decided to
' make no more speeches until he reaches
Pittsburg. His voice has become
husky from his two hard days in Iowa
and Illinois. Monroevilie, lad. .turned
out a large sized crowd which cheered
vigorously, and then the train crossed
over into Ohio.
A serious panic was narrowly avoided
at rtnlnhna Dhin. when the train
reached' there at 7:13 a. m. Tbe
crowd. was large. Mr. Bryan stepped
to the. platform and just as tbe expla..
nation that ne coma not raaae a epeeco
was finished, tne porch of a store di
rectly in front of the train, gave way
with a crash, carrying with it more
than a hundred people. The -shrieks
of those who tumbled into the cellar
and the frantic eagerness of others to
get awsy, started a mad, panicky rush.
"Stand still, aon t move," onea wr.
Bryan, and tbe words brought the
frightened people to themselves. No
body was much hurt. When this was
told Bryan, be remarked to the crowd :
'It you would get on our platform it
wouldn't fall down.'r A laugh fol
lowed and the people recovered enough
from their fright to cheer the nominee
as the train moved off. In addition to
tbe newspaper correspondents on tbe
Bryan train are national committeemen
from Illinois, Kaosas and Nebraska.
Lima was reached at 7:45. Fifteen
hundred people were waiting, and the
demonstration was enthusiastic. Mrs.
Bryan made her first appearance of
the day and stood by her husband's
aide. ..V ..
