The governing committee of the ex change took up the matter after trad ing had "closed today and in a brief .session Authorized the president of the exchange, R. H. Thomas, to appoint the.'. "Investigating" committee. The "namcsVof the members of the Investi gating committee probably will be an nounced tomorrow. The great volume of the trading during the two hours' session of the Btdck market on Saturday la shown by comparison with that of to-day. The jjiumher of shares sold Saturday In two ,hours was 1,099,000, while In the five hours of trading to-day 887,000 shares , iwere traded In. The ibellef that Sat urday's sales were manipulative had Its origin In the fact that shares were bought and sold In tremendous blooks without greatly affecting' the market trices but the real purpose underlying '.jthe sales has not been ascertained, If lit was ulterior as Is suspected by the fcrokers. Some of the more conserva tive members refused to accept the or Iders when they became convinced 'that t"he "sales were "matched," an or der to sell a block of given stock toeing followed Iby an order to buy given through, a different (broker. Some of the smaller brokers who trade on the floor for the other mem bers of tho exchange accepting a re duced commission of $2 for 100 shares bought or sold,' were reported today to have given the names of three or four firms as having done practically all of (Saturday's enormous business. Through them the committee may be able to trace the source of the alleged slmul taneous orders to sell and buy. A sin gle firm" was reported to have 'handled 'transactions 'amounting to 600,000 shares, so great a business that Its sheet did not reach tho exchange clear ing house until Sunday morning. The main question before the Investi gating committee will be the Identity of the prime mover In Saturday's ex traordinary market. If It Is found that the orders were matched severe dls elpllne may be applied as It Is a vio lation of the rules of the .exchange.

I MR. POLI ANSWERS SAPHO CRITICISM Writes Bridgeport Minister That Version Presented There Was Entirely Proper. ' WAS WELL EXPURGATED Regrets Thnt, Crltlo Did Not First Call Ills Attention to Matter Instead of Culling on Police. nrldgcport, Aug. 24. In reply letters written by Rev. Gerald to It Beard, to Mayor Lee concerning th e recent production of "Sapho" In thl city S. Z. I'oll, owner of a string of theaters and proprietor of Prill's play houxe In this city, has written to Rev Mr. Beard. The substance of th amusement promoter's letter became known here, where a copy of tho com munication was obtained. Mr. Poll writes as follows; New Haven, Conn., August 20, 1908. Rev. Gerald II. Beard. Bridgeport, Ct. My Dear-Sir: It has Just come to my notice, through the publication In the Bridgeport newspapers of your correspondence with Mayor' I.ee, that you entertained some objection to the recent production of "Sapho" at my theater In that city as well as to tho methods used In advertising the piny. That your communication was not ad-, dressed to me. In the first Instance, rather than to the city's chief magis trate, Is the only point to which I de sire to take exception. As a heavy taxpayer In Bridgeport as well as In other cities of Connecti cut and as an amusement manager with a clientele recruited In the large majority from ladies and children, It Is naturally my desire and my purpose st all times to exclude from my thea ter anything that may savor of im morality or. offend the decencies. ' As regards the production of "Sapho" I can assure you that I pre sented an expurgated version of the play, one that was revised under my personal supervision and presented In one of my New Haven theaters last season. So far as I am aware no fault was found with the play by any person and I am not aware either that anyone in Bridgeport outside of yourself has filed any exception. I am quite convinced that, If. you will confer with anyone who saw the play in New Haven or Bridgeport, you will be satisfied that there was nothing to which any high- minded and right-minded person could make the, slightest objection. IAs to the methods used In advertising the pjay I do not recall anything that could bo construed otherwise than "refined which It Is always my policy to employ. BRYAN STRONG FOR CLUBS Tells Burcnu of Organization They Aro a Great Stimulator. Chicago, Aug. 24. Cheered by scores who thronged around his train, William J. Bryan, accompanied by Mr. Mack national chairman; Senator Culberson, and members of the democratic nation al committee, departed from Chicago at noon today on the Monon railroad for Indianapolis, to attend the notlfi cation of John W. Korn for vlcc-presl dent. Mr. Bryan and his party occupied a private car which was attached to the regular train. Mr. Bryan's first visit here today was to the bureau of organization, of which John W. Tomllnson Is the head, where he discussed the subject of the forma tion of clubs. Mr. Bryan Is a believer In clubs. Following this visit he made the following statement: "There Is nothing that. Increases man's Interest in tho party's success more, than the work that he himself does. When a man Joins a club and en rolls himself as a worker his own en thusiasm Is Increased. The conscious ness that he Is serving the party Is In Itself a stimulus to greater service. Then, too, the club gives a unity of purpose and of action. When they meet together In the clubroom and ex change views they are not only better Informed upon the questions which tfre being discussed, but they concentrate their efforts and work more effectively." BY CONG. BOUTELL Submarine Investigator Dares Nebraskan to Repeat His ' Anti-Imperialist Speech. DOWN IN MISSISSIPPI Siibstltullns "Black Brothers" for "Brown Brothers" Turbulent Talker Opens Cumpalftn ' lit Maine. Portland, Me., Aug. 24. The repub lican campaign preceding the state election waa formally opened tonight. A rally In the Auditorium was attend ed by politicians of prominence from every section of the state, who are hero to attend the conference of Maine political workers with National Chair man Hitchcock tomorrow. The prlncl- pal speaker was Congressman Henry Sherman Boutell of Chicago, comment ing on Mr. Bryan's speech In Iowa last weok. Mr. Boutell said: Mr. Bryan's question "Shall the peo pie rule," implies that somewhere In this country tho people do not rule. The only states where the people do not ruin are the states that are expect ed to give overwhelming majorities for the democratic ticket. Perhaps Mr. Bryan thinks that his question Is purely of local Issue. If he Is sincere, I challenge him to make i speech In Vlcksburg, Miss., on "Gov ernment by the People." Let him re peat one of his famous antl-tmperlal- lst speeches, simply changing three words, substituting "Mlsslslppl" . for "Philippines" and "black brothers" for "brown brothers." Let him suguest that we have as chairman of his meeting the Hon. John Sharp Williams, loader of the democrats In congress, and as vice-chairmen the other members of the congressional delegation from Mis sissippi. "And after he has mads this speech In Vlcksburg. If he shall have escaped the rule of the. people In that com munity, I dare Mr. Bryan to repeat his oration on popular government In Charleston, S. C.wlth Senator Till man as chairman of his meeting. Mr. Bryan's sentiment has a purely geog raphical sincerity. Ills epigrams and startling conundrums are especially designed to meet local demands. Of this nature are all his views on tariff and taxation. "Mr. Bryan's proposition that every time a trust formed, a tariff schedule should be repeated, and every time' a trust Is dissolved a new duty should bV added Is too funny even for comle opera. "If on the fourth of March next, Mr. P.ryan should become president with a democratic congress In both houses, nnd should actually place up on the statute books the financial and economic vagaries delivered by him In his speech of last Friday It would plunge the nation Into bankruptcy .and bring on industrial chaos. If he should begin by repealing the duty on sugar to punish the sugar trust, he would upset the national finances by losing sixty millions a year In revenue and would stir up a revolution In Louisiana, Utah, Colorado and Michi gan. Then If he should repeal the duty on cotton goods, because some hustling manufacturers of New Eng land or the C'arollnas were dumping goods In China In rivalry with Eng land and Germany, he would divert other millions from the treasury nnd Invito a still further Industrial ruin. "But of course Mr. Bryan would do none' of these things any more than he will Invade the solid south and summon the cohorts of democracy to the defense of the constitution with the battle cry 'Shall the people rule? Mr. Bryan simply docs not mean what he says. What he utters with ChaJ- bandlan unction In the north he re pudlates with . Pecksnllrlan dupllcacy In tho south."
