Buelows position appears to be al
most untenable Far and wld
throughout the empire the newspa
pens of all parties discuss with vary
ing degrees of mockery amazement
and regret the governments explana
tion of bow what purported to bn
enormously Important utterances o
the emperor affecting three grea4
powers passed through the hands ot
the chancellor and a long line of for
eign officials without seemingly hay
ing benn considered by any of them
or read by most of those responsiblf
for the delicate foreign relations
The emperor lully condones Prix
Von Buelows par Jn the affair but
the chancellors atl1 brityand prcs
tige with the country have been st
shaken that he may again asK the
emperor fo relieve rhlm
In addition to the + semiiofilcial ac
counts already published it is learn
ed that the emperor handed the man
uscript of the interview which ap
peared in the London Daily Tele
graph and the authorship of which in
still undisclosed to Baron Von Jo
nisch who was attached to hiu en
tourage while the emperor was ab
sent from the capital a short time
ago as the representative of the for
eign office with the direction to send
it to Prince Von Buelow The manu
script consisted of a number of
small flimsylike sheets the hand
writing being difficult to decipher
and the chancellor referred it to Herr
Von Mueller the minister at The
Hague who was acting as the chan
cellors private secretary
The latter in his turn sent It to the
foreign office where in the absence
of Herr on Schoen it was read by
subordinate officials who did not at
tach much importance to its contents
and returned it without further ex
amination until transmitted by one of
the imperial secretaries to England
where as the Taglische Rundschau
described ituit emerged gaily Into

tory at the election on Tuesday Wil
liam J Bryan Democratic candidate
for president left Chicago for a tour
today through Kansas Tonight he
expects to reach his home at Lncoln
Neb where he will participate in a
home demonstration Mrs Bryan
left the candidates special train here
and went direct toLtn otnMore
than a dozen boxes of flowerslvhich
had been given her during the trip
through Indiana on Saturday were
taken home by Mrs Bryan
Before leaving Chicago Mr Bryan
said I do hot care to make any list
of states in estimating the result of
the election for while I think the re i
sult is more certain In some states
than In others I would not want to
discourage Democrats In the less cer
tain states by making discrimina
tions I believe that we will have
votes to spare In the electoral col
lege and a considerable majority of
the popular vote
Speaking of his delay In reaching
Chicago Saturday night Mr Bryan
said The trip arranged for the day
was a long one with a large number
of stops The meetings were unex
pectedly large and in some places
the speaking stands were fixed some
distance from the stations We had
to ride slowly through the crowded
streets to reach the stands Then
there were three changes from one
road to anotuer Finally our engine
broke down and the substitute engine
had to be turn d around at the next
station and that caused a delay I
never before had such a seriesof de
lays in this campaign
I am very much pleased with the
reports I have had from Illinois I
believe that the Republicans ot this
state have an unpleasant surprise
coming when they read the returns
from their state on election dayli

place in the last four or five days A
careful canvass of the several execu

more will leave for nearby states to

former failed to register in Tennes

after every shipment of freight in the ij f
territory east of the Mississippi and f
north of the Ohio must be made up
on the basis of the new form unless
a shipper objecting to the terms
agrees to pay 10 per cent more than
the regular freight rates It was cus
tomary to charge 20 per cent extra
on shipments notf under the old bill t
of lading The new form is believed
to be universally acceptable It has
a distinctive color yellow adopted at
the suggestion of the American Bank 1

The difficulty of fixing a definite
basis for the settlement of claims
prior to shipment Is also minimizedj
The form of the new bill represents
the best judgment not only of the In
