UaL i Jlari Theresa, from
BRYAN AT WASHINGTON.
Thousands of People Gathered to See
and Hear Him. . ,
Washington, Oct 23. The Hon Wil
liam J. Bryan spent an hour and a
quarter at the National eapital to-day.
His train arrived over the Chesapeake
and Ohio railroad from West Virginia,
at- 7:55 o'clock this morning. About
1,000 people were awaiting him at tne
depot. As the train pulled in, ex-Judge
WllUam M. Springer, former chairman
of the house committee on- ways and
means, and an. old'colleague and warm
friend of the. democratic candidate,
stepped to Mr- Bryan's pf ivate ear -at
the rear , of the train - and' 'welcomed,
him. The- two then' passed through
the crowd to- the entrance.-. Here au
automobile was in waiting, and they
were taken to the residence of Judge
Springer, opposite the capitol, where
Mr Bryan had breakfast; Colonel" Is
aac Hill, democratic. t Whip" of the
house of representatives, was the only
other guest. A few minutes before U
o'clock Mr Bryan was driven to uie
Baltimore-and Ohio depot, where he
made a brief speech from his automo
bile. 'He spoke on imperialism -and
civil service. About 5,000 -people were
massed at. the depot.-. -i Mr Bryan
said: ' .,
Occasionally I hear it suggested
that persons engaged in the civil ser
vice who are opposed to imperialism
will vote the republican ticket for fear
of losing their positions with the gov
ernment. I am not much of an admirer
of that civil service which is suspend
ed when a president is ' Inaugurated
until he can fill the offices with his
flends and is extended by the presi
dent when he is about to retire, in or
der that he may .-protect his friends in
office. The Industrial despotism -now
inaugurated by the republican party is
closlug the door of opportunity against
the young man and driving many to
seek government employment . who un
der better conditions would be em
ployed in producing Industries.?
Mr Bryan closed with the statement
that ft was not his highest ambition
to be president, '.'but to make this gov
ernment so good that to be a private
citizen In this republic will be a great
er honor than to be a king in any
other nation."
A delegation- from the Maryland
state central committee met Mr Bry
an here and at a few minutes after
he left for Hockviile,' where he made
the first of a series of speeches in a
tour of Maryland towns. ;
Before Teaching Washington the
train on which Mr Bryan came in
made a brief stop at Alexandria, "Va,
The statement had been made In ad
vance that Mr -.Bryan 'would , make a
brief speech In that town and a large
number of people had congregated at
the railroad yards to greet turn, -l hey
received him'- wJth vociferous- cheers.
but 'Mr Bryatr liad 'only -.time i to say
that he felt complimented to .nave so
tuauv people come' out to greet 'him so
early in the moruing. He inlfu. he said
sure of Virginia support and :. from
what he had seen of other " states re
cently he felt Justified in asserting
that Virginia woitld ,'h&e . plenty , of
company on election day. The only
other stop made in Virginia after day-
tight, was at Manassas. '..The stop
waa oay for a moment and Mr. Br j-
an did not appear. " Nevertheless there

and tier mother. Mr Durant and Sher
iff Rametti were -the only people who
knew of the existence of the warrant.
The women say they didn't tell a soul
about it. Such are the facts as they
came to me, and I think thev should
be ' made public. If Judge - Burpee
wants to inquire about it we have got
tne names and all the information here
ready for him. I don't say it has any
political significance, but it is strange
how the warrant got lost and the
young man against whom it was is
sued got away."v

Resigned from' Positlon'ia Sewer De-

John Hurley severed his connection
with the sewer department to-day1 and.
so ,a- reporter of -thi5i:aper -was ia-.
formed, will step t)ito the arena- right J
olf for, the purpose, of- sccuriug the
election of Harry ;-Duraat,: tlie republi
cau candidate for senator;- So' far as
can be learned. Mr Hurley had no dtf-
M ei.wv4iu: au ao auoui woi v ana
the only thing known about the matter
is that he . called upon Mr Horlgan,
clerk iu the olilce of superlntendeut of
the "street department, this ' mornlug,
and asked to have his name taken off
the' payroll. It is believed .that John
knew what was coming and thought
that he might just as well go' now as
later, for it seemed to be pretty gen
erally believed that the city would not
! continue him in ollice- at a.' salary of
$3.20 a day and allow 'hlm to devote
too much of his time, 5f any at all. to
the work of boosting republicans into
power. It was reported a short time
ago that Hurley Was playing a double
Saint and the Democrat, thinking that
lie was be lug maligned,' gave him a
chance to speak to the ' public. aud ho
took .advantage of It. stating that he
Uckut. but the paper wf.s not off -the
press , when he Was around - denying
that he ever said any silt-h thing. Well,
what matter about that, but that' In
terview was all right.- and it was toot
cscd without Mr Hurley's voiisent.' and
if he will jog his memory he will re
member, that there were more present
thau' himself and the reporter when
the interview took . place- But after
ail. Mr Hurley has not exceeded his
right in getting through, and, iu fact.
he has not done anything . but what
those who know hiui best knew he
would do some . time before election,
It would be -ci'Bfil -tpj-ftak John I
to oppose narry tjuraut. xue mutrs
tastes are too much alike; they have
spent too much time together-, Aud
know too much about each other to be
brought face to face in a political con
test. It Is probable that Mr . Hurley s
offer from the Traction company, 'J'.at
Is to work for them at X'Jt a day, wet
and dry, still holds good,, and if this
be true he need not care a picayune
about the democratic .party. .-'Tlie trol
ley company is sum -o nave positions
for all tile-fellows iu the several wards
who .are supposed to have a pull aud
of course they made no mistake when
they wanted Mr Hurley to work for
them.". He was well liked' on the sew
er department, and those -who would
like .to befriend ului'.terieve thai it
would have paid him btftter to hold
than give it up to start out to chase
shadows, for big corporations, like
sharp politicians, arc. poor, props to lean
upOu. The; democratic party usod Mr
Hurley handsomely awl. "i those who
.thought it a mistake to give him the
position- ' he,.,, resigned -' to-day . while
there- were more : deserving ; parties
looking for it, will laugh -in their

a little while he could speak. 'Soon he

that- his fellow-countrymen were so

I said to Mrs Sampson that when I
visited my Southland- - I :would tell

BDSY B1IB8LARS;-
Entered Samuel -Hubsr's Jo-v7
: elry Store . Last Night. .
SCARED BY OFFICER SULLIVAN
The Burglars Secured Watches, Brace- --i
lets, Chains and a Fine Mandolin
The Goods Were Taken Through tha
Front Window of the Store No Clue
to Burglars.
Burglars made a big haul on South -
Main street last night and had it not.
been for the presence of ToHee Officer, - j.
Michael Sullivan they would have
done much better, and Samuel Huber,"
who conducts a jewelry store at 121'
South Main street, just a. little :north' -
of Nugent's pharmacy, would be
obliged to go into insolvency, for ia ..
all probability the boys would not have :'
left a dollar's worth in his- store- if "
they had not been seared away:-About
11 o'clock, when the officer went to try
tne rear door which opens onto Brook
street he found it unlocked" nnd a lit
tle investigation showed that it had '
been opened by some parties with a" "
view to burglarizing the place:,; 0e "-
of the lights of glass in the door had -.
been removed, the shutter forced la
and the key turned in the door,- so that
tne whole place -was at the mercy of
mose wno planned the job, and it i a
wonder that they did not get nway
with more of the stock.. The' officer '
reported the facts to Sergeant Faean'
and then a search was commenced for
the proprietors, who were finally lo- -cated
on Hawkins street, where they
removed trom Mne street quite re
cently.
When Mr Iluber called at tlia nlace
and saw what had happened he was
wna with rage at the idea of seeinff
the door broken, but when he misRed
a few hundred dollars' worth of his '
goods then his indignation knew no .
hounds, and no wonder, for the man Is
said to be a hard worker and was just -
Dunning up a little business there.
After going over the stock he missed
various articles, among them beinc the
following: One " dozen solid -silver
bracelets, valued at SlT'eachV three -
dozen ladies' chains, ranging in price -
rrom IH.oO to ?8. apiece; one inandolUV
market price $12; watch and, chain.
price $C.7n; watch, price $4.95. '
some of the articles vere taken out -
of the window f rontjng on South Mala "
street, right in the glare of the electric
lights, where the thieves could have
been seen from the streetwithout any :.-
trouble; The others were picked up
at random from the show case. It is
believed .that whoever w.as on the Iri
side had some 'one on the iookbu'f for
the police, who gave the alarm when
he saw Officer Sullivan-coming along.
and tbe fellow on the" inside then made.'
good his escape before the officer
reached the door. It could not Have :
occurred In any other way, for It is cer-1' "
tsin--that there was no one In the place".
when the officers entered.' It was a
daring deed, and while the police- are
after the burglars it iVoubtful if they
will succeed in catching them.
