Ids'. Mr. and Mrs. Bryan, Mr. Sewall
and the members of their paity took
the train to YoDkers to catch tbe
steamer Albany.", J"he party reached
here at 9:35 and tbe tBryans and
friends went immediately to the "Alba.
dy's" landing-. Tbe vessel had arrived
a few minutes before and Biter good
byes to Sewall and Walker the demo.
cratic presidential nominee and Mrs
Bryan started on their trip up the Had
.on. They will zo as tar as Pough
keepsie, and take the train from there
for Upper Bed Hook, where theBryans
are to visit the Perrlnes. Mr. Sewall
returned to New York.
Foughkbepsie, N. Y., August 17.
It was 1:20 when tbe steamer "Alba.

lowed him two blocks to tbe central

tbe platform, and made a little speech,
the first since his appearance at Madi
son Square Garden. ''We are going
west soon," be said, "and I am not
making any speeches just now. I hope,
on mv return. I shall be able to see
yon again ; but I take this opportunity
to say I am much gratified to know of
the interest von are latin e in me cam
paign. From reading tbe New York
D&Dera one would suppose there was
no sentiment for free silver In this
stale, but the ere at daily papers are
not able to suppress the sentiments of
tbe masses of the people. (Cheers)
I believe this campaign Is character
tied by more intense feeling than any
other campaign in which we younger
men haye been engaged. I believe the
people are able and willing to act as
they believe."

control of vaccination from the boards
of guardians to the sanitary authori
ties; but a substantial minority is of

KSW rALL TIKI SCHBRPLB.
There is already some talk in railroad
circles of tbe new time card on tbe Atchi
son, The schedule will probably take ef
fect sometime next month, and It Is ex
pected that a number of important changes
will be made.
The most Important change looked for is
the ' re-establishment of tbe limited
train service between Chicago and Los
Angelas. This service was abolished in
the spring, on account of tbe light travel
to and from California points during tbe
summer, but It is certain to be again inau
gurated to take care of the heavy through
traffic during the winter months. The re
establishment of this limited service will
undoubtedly be made along the most eco
nomical lines, and it is understood that the
following plan Is in contemplation t
Tbe equipment of trains 8 and 4 will con
sist only of flrst-clasa Pullman sleepers,
dining car and one baggage car, with a
compartment car once a week. The extra
baggage and express will be made a part
of trains 1 and 1, which will then cease to
carry first-class sleepers, and carry only
tourist sleepers and coaches. As before,
no free transportation will be honored on
tbe limited trains, ; ,

The Transvaal Raiders.
London, England, August 17. It is
semi-offioially announced that no ao
tion will be taken toward removing
from the rolls of the army Major Rob
ert White, Colonel Raleigh Grey,
Colonel Henry Frederick White and
Major Charles John Coventry, the
Transvaal raiders, who, with Dr. Jam
eson and Sir John Willoughby, were
recently convioted and sentenced to
terms of imprisonments, until such
terms have expired. The question of
anoeling their commissions will then
oome np in the ordinary course before
Commander-in-Chief Viscount Wolse
ley and Adjutant General Sir Redvers
Buller. The statement was made at
army headquarters that mere convic
tion of a criminal offense does not for
feit a commission, and in support of
this view it is pointed out that num
bers of junior offioers are yearly fined
in police courts for drunkenness or dis
orderly conduct. It is addnd, bow
ever, that, on the other hand, no con
viction is required to enable her majes
ty to dispense with tbe services of any
officer if she should so see fie.

. Reward StUI Stands.
Upon, , Information 'received yesterday
from Las Vegas, tbs Advertiser is author
ised to state that th telegram published in
yesterday morning's issue, purporting to
have come from Mrs. Anna Green and
ordering a withdrawal of tbe reward for
the body of her husband, Wn. Green, was
a forgery and that Mrs. Green bad nothing
whatever to do with the writing of tbs
telegram, says Saturday's Trinidad Ad
vertiser. The telegram, it is learned upon
reliable Information, was" written by Mrs.
George Code, who used Mrs. Green's
name. - '.-:
Tbe reward of (1,000 for Billy Green
alive, or for $500 for til body, still contin
ues to stand and will be promptly paid to
any person who wilt produce tbe body liv
ing or dead. . -?
It is a singular coincidence that this tele'
gram should bave been received tbe day
before the preliminary hearing of Taylor
and Bisneros was set for.
Not much came of tbe arrest of Joe Tay
lor and E. Bineroa, charged with the mur
der of Wm, Green and W. J, Kelley. The
preliminary was twice postponed and tbe
second time was set for Friday, but when
the case was oalled, upon motion of
Deputy District Attorney Smith it was
promptly dismissed and the defendants
discharged. J. J. Hendrick, attorney for
tbe defense, asked that tbe costs be i
leased" npon Ell Green, the prosecuting
itness, bnt the court failed to see tbe
wisdom of this and the costs will be borne
by the county.
