As William tfennlngs Bryan adjusted his necktie and blushed the cinders from his trousers , after emerging safely from a wreck near here today on the Chicago cage and Northwestern road , he reflec tively murmured "Four. " Then drawing his ever faithful diary from the upper vest pocket he noted down the location by the sun , and the date , with an epilogue of these words , "Fourth time a wreck has occurred on my various Journeys to speak at the Rockford chautauqun. Where is the silver lining ? " After completing these details he picked his way between the several cars that lay athwart the track , and walked to the engineer who was dos ing up a rheumatic engine. "We're wrecked all right , " remarked Mr. Bryan with a bland single , and every one agreed with his views. With a few more words on encour agement to the train crew and other passengers , who all escaped uninjured , Mr. Bryan placed his black slouch hat jauntily on his head , nnd , grasping his satchel , joined the line of refugees who wended their way up the track like the fag end of a bad theatrical tour. For more than a mile and a half Mr. Bryan "dot and carried one" along the ties. At Belvldero Mr. Bryan took a tro- } ley nnd made the Chautauqua grounds at Rockford about the middle of the afternoon , behind schedule time. The wreck on the Northwestern which delayed Mr. Bryan was caused by the baggage car taking an open switch. Three coaches were ditched Mr. Bryan was in ono of the day coaches that was derailed.

" FRICK SEES NHANGER AHEAD Steel Magnate Advises Government to Overlook All Misdeeds of Past. New York , Aug. 22. Henry C Frick , who came to town from his summer home to attend the meeting of the finance committee of the United States Steel corporation , said : " 1 find nothing in underlying conditions to wairunt the apparent great lack oi confidence which now seems preva lent. 1 can understand the vague , bu real unsettlement of sentiment created by current agitation against corpora tions , but this Is in a meabuio , apart from real conditioiib and Is capable ol correction. 1 believe myself , and al ways have , in the correction of abuses , whether corporate or Individual , but 1 feel that sucn care should be exercised in doing this that only the wrongdoer should suffer "Now that the government is deter mined to entorco ln vs hitherto dor mant , would it not bo well that actions of the past , sanctioned by cubtom and usage at that time , slould not be called into question under the new or der of things , but that such activity as the government has shown should be taken ns evidence of Its Intentions as to the future , and serve as a fair warn Ing to the managements of all corpora tions. Of course , where corporations are still acting outside of the law , un knowingly , It is to be expected that they should be set right , but I am sure that can be accomplished without harm to any ono and without the least Injury to credit , if the situation Is properly and Intelligently handled by the administration.
