Bryan Opens Campaign in
North Carolina With Ag
ALL GLORY TO DEMOCRACY

at Burlington he made a brief announce
ment of the tragic occurrence and paid
a tender tribute to the memory of his
-RALEIGH. N. C, Sept. 17. In the first
or 11 speeches to be delivered la North
Carolina, W. J. Bryan today paid his re
spects to Secretary of State Shaw, -who
has been campaigning in the South. He
reiterated his charge that President
Roosevelt's policy as to railroads and
trusts, had been taken from Democratic
platforms and insisted that In advocating
Government ownership of Railroads he
had only gone a step further tnan me
fining trusts, and insisted that their offi
cials should be Imprisoned.
At the outset of his speech Mr. Bryan
said that North Carolina had a peculiar
claim upon his affections, as It was one
of the first states of the Union to declare
through its delegates that it wanted
him for the Democratic nomination for
1S0S. It was not difficult, he said, to
locate the original Bryan man. In th)s
connection he promised that in any fu
ture campaign the people of this state
could always call( upon him.
Shaw's Second-Hand -Clothes.
Mr. Bryan said he was doubtful In
coming South if he was using his time
to the best advantage, and added that
liis coming wan made still less neces
sary from the fact that Secretary Shaw
had been here before. Taking up Sec
retary Shaw's Asheville . speech, Mr.
Bryan said he felt grateful to him
for the service he had rendered the
Democratic party. Secretary Shaw, he
declared, had tried to palm off in this
state some second-hand clothing he
could not get rid of in Iowa. He had
brought a speech which had been re
jected In his own state. He declared
tnat Secretary 6haw is the high priest
f the standpatters, that he goes be

"Secretary Shaw," hd said, ."has not
a word In favor of any modification of
the tariff schedule, while in other
states. New England states and Iowa
conspicuous Republicans are demand
ing It. and even McKinley had reached
a point where he saw something might
be done to extend our trade."
Mr. Bryan said: "You can't take Mr.
Shaw's argument as true without believ
ing that those protected manufacturers
get money out of the American people
and then get it again out or the rorelgn
His Stolen Platform.
On the question of Democratic planks,
advocated by Republicans, Mr. Bryan said
mat wnenever a nepuoncan epea-KB oi
anything with praise and rejoicing, he is
speaking of something done in accord
ance with the Democratic doctrine. When
he apologizes, he Is talking about some
purely Republican doctrine. Everything
the Republicans say on the tariff, he
added. Is in the way of apology.
As to President Roosevelt as a war
rior, Mr. Bryan said that two years ago
Governor Black, in nominating the Presi
dent, delivered an eulogy on war, say
ing the country needed a 'man of blood
and iron. "At the St. Louis Convention,"
eaid Mr. Bryan. "I quoted this, and said
it was a challenge to Christian civiliza
tion. Now. Is it not strange that within
two years the man who was then called
the God of war has won his greatest vic
tory and laid the foundation for his great
est glory as a maker of peace between
.ttussia ana japan.
Put Trust Magnates in Jail.
Coming to the question of trusts, Mr.
Bryan said that '"you don't enjoin horse
thieves, but put them in the penitentiary.
But trust magnates must be Just asked
to desist before the uproar becomes too
great. They found that did not go and
they said we will actually fine you $3000
when you can make $100,000 during the
trial. We say, treat rich and poor, alike.
Talk about anarchists! The Republican
party has made more anarchists in this
country by discriminating in the. punish
ment of the rich and the poor than were
ever made by all the speeches on anarchy
Rate Law and Ownership.
Mr. Bryan said that the present rate
bill could not have been passed without
the help of the Democrats and that that
great Democrat, Tillman, was put In
. charge of it. although he believed they
gave it to Tillman because they thought
it would make Roosevelt mad. and the
bill was not as good as it would have
ucmu ii Liiey imu. ii otner -Lemocra.L3
amend It. and It was better than it would
have been than if they had not let some
Democrats amend It.
In this connection, Mr. Bryan came to
speak of his own ideas as to Government
ownership of railroads, saying:
Because I have stated that it Is going to
be Impossible to Ret relief from this rate
law on account of the corrupting influence
of railroads, I am Jumped on by all the
newspapers tnat tailed to support me here
tofore and by people' who thought I had
changed and begun to yield to the Influences
of predatory wealth.
President Roosevelt himself in his two
messages said that, if this law were not
effective, we could expect public ownership
to come, ana tnat am not create any com
motion In the country. 1 merely went a atep
further and said that from my observations
I did not believe It would be effective.
Corruption by Railroads.
If any North Carolina Democrat doea not
believe that corrupting Influences will make
this law ineffective, read your own platform.
There Is not a state in the South that has
not felt the corrupting Influences of railroads
in legislation. Believing It ultimately to be
. the solution. I gave a plan that would give
the benefit of public ownership without the
danger of centrallxatlon. It was a dual
plan, giving each state the right to control
. Its own railroads and protect its own inter
ests. My plan is a Democratic one that lets
the state act when it Is ready.
Mr. Bryan delivered a ten-minutes' ad-
dress in Capital Square "after leaving
Metropolitan tiau. wnere ne spoke first
He was Introduced by Governor Glenn as
the next President.
When the Bryan special stopped in
Durham, It wag raining, so the speaking
took place in the Opera-House, which
was crowded to the utmost limits. Here
in the home of the American Tobacco
Company, Mr. Bryan made some of his
sharpest thrusts at the trusts, and his
remarks were cheered lustily. Soon after
the train left Durham. C. H. Mclver,
president of the State Normal College at
Greensboro, died of apoplexy. In conse
quence of this event, Mr. Bryan, who
regarded Dr. Mclver as his personal
friend, declined to speak at Hiiisboro, and
DAY ENDS IX DEATH GLOOM
Bryan Eulogizes Mclver as Greater
GREENSBORO, N. C Sept. 17. The
coming of W. J. Bryan to Greensboro
this evening was shadowed in gloom. On
the same train was the body of Dr.
Charles Duncan Mclver, president of the
State Normal and Industrial School nere,
who died of apoplexy on the train. He
was a member of the reception committee
for Guilford County.
At 8 o'clock the City Hall was crowded
to Its capacity to hear the speaking. Mr.
Bryan was introduced by ex-Lleutenant-Governor
Charles M. Steadman, a per
sonal friend of Mr. Bryan's. Mr. Bryan s
speech was an eulogy to Mr. Mclver, at
whose invitation the Nebraskan came
here 12 years ago on his first visit to
North Carolina. He pointed out that Dr.
Mclver's life was an Ideal one and said
he would rather die with his record than
the name and fame of John D. Rockefel
ler. Governor B.- B. Glenn followed Mr.
Bryan and also paid a tribute to Dr.
Mclver. Later a reception was tendered
Mr. Bryan at the McAdoo Hotel. '
Tomorrow Mr. Bryan will speak at
Winston-Salem, KernsviTle, High Point,
Lexington, Salisbury, Concord and Charlotte.

Dwellers on Beach Rescued From
WILMINGTON, N. Cv Sept. 17. For six
or eight hours more than 200 men, women
an children were cut oft from the main
land in imminent peril, while cottage,
hotel and railroad property was damaged
to the extent of $10,000 by a fierce north
east storm which swept Wrightsvllle
Beach, nine miles east of Wilmington,
The storm reached the height of its fury
between 6 and 7 o'clock this morning.
Hundreds of cottagers received their first
Intimation of danger upon awakening thia
morning to find breakers sweeping clear
across the beach to the sound and rolling
high up on the mainland, two miles be
Five trolley-cars brought a number of
early risers across the sound on the
trestle by which it is reached, while the
waves swept the trestle. Those left at
the beach were afraid to cross the trestle,
which gave way Immediately after .the
last car reached the mainland.
The storm Increased In fury until- noon,
when the rescue work was begun. Surf
boats were sent across the channel at
great risk, bringing first the women and
children, then the men, the last of the
number being brought over at 6 o'clock
thivafternoon. Sheriff Frank H. Stead
man was among those caught at the
beach, and at once swore In a number of
deputies, who closed the barrooms and
patrolled the beach tonight to prevent
looting of the places.
At Carolina Beach, farther down the
mainland, there was some damage to cot

day before on notice of falling barometer.
At Southport, at the mouth of Cape Fear
River, the harbor craft had a narrow es
cape from the storm, several of the pas
senger boats being damaged.
The Clyde liner Navahoe, due here at i

of them intended sailing on the Mongolia,
others on the Buford.
The Buford was scheduled to sail from
San Francisco tonight till 2 o'clock this
afternoon, when the order was received
to proceed to Midway Island. The Mid
way trip is most unwelcome to steam
ship officials, as the locality Is notorious

at Oro Fino this morning, having driven
from Grangeville to that point during the
When the train reached Moscow the
party alighted at the water tank, about
150 yards east of the station, and walked
up town. The train reached here at 12:06.
The party attracted no attention and
would not have been recognized, except
for a telephone message wired from
down the road, which caused the train to
be closely watched. They took dinner
here and about 2 o'clock took a four
horse rig. They started north on the
Viola road and will keep well within the
state, for the purpose of avoiding the pos
sible service of a writ of habeas corpus,
which the attorneys of Moyer, Haywood
and Pettibone are supposed to have pre
pared. From Viola the road they will naturally
take is the old state wagon road which
leads to the northeast through Prince

source, then across the divide to the val
