Banker Dies on Way
SAX FRANCISCO. Sept. 9. Phillip
JS Liiienthal. president of the Anglo
Californian Bank of this city, and one
of the most prominent financiers of
the Pacific Coast, died here this even
ing from Injuries received when the
automobile In which he was returning
from the Gans-J.el.son prixe-flght col
lided with a horse and cart.
The banker, who was an extremely
heavy man. either Jumped from the
machine when he saw that the collis
ion' was coming or was hurled to the
ground by the sudden stoppage of the
car. striking on his head and shoulders.
One side of his head was found to be
terribly crushed when he was picked
up and several ribs had been fractured
by the force of his fall. He died in
the car on the way to tne nospuai.
On Way Home From Fight.
Mr. Liiienthal had gone to the prize
fight, which was held in the arena
near the county line, accompanied by
Gregory TVilenkin, the financial agent
at Washington of the Russian Govern
ment during the Japanese-Kussian war.
and Ignace 'Warschansky. also of St.
Petersburg, and well-known In Wash
ington. After the fight the party again entered
Mr. Liiienthal s automobile and started
to return to the cily along the broad
, Mission road. The car was making good
speed, when the chauffeur decided to turn
down a cross street leading directly to the
heart of the city. As he swung the ma
chine around the corner, a young horse
attached to a heavy sulky and coming in
the opposite direction, became frightened
and pranced In front of the car.
Found Dying on Itoad.
Although the chauffeur brought his car
to a stop very suddenly, he could not
avoid the collision and the horse was
piled up on the fenders of the automobile,
falling from there to the ground. The
chauffeur and Mr. Wllenkln and Mr. War
schansky Jumped out at once and set
sbout helping the driver of the sulky right
his cart and get his horse on Its feet.
It was at this time that the absence of
Mr. Liiienthal. who had been sitting in
the front seat of the car. was noticed. On
lookir.g around, his friends discovered
the banker lying in the road some 15 feet
away from the machine, unconscious and
Willi his face and head covered with
blood. The injured man was hastily
placed in the car and all speed made to
the nearest hospital, but Mr. Liiienthal
exp'red during the Journey.
Examination at the hospital showed
that one side of the head had been
crushed and a number of ribs on the
same side broken, evidently by the
force of the fall.
Jumped or Was Thrown Out,
Whether Mr. Liiienthal Jumped from
the car when he saw the accident im
pending or whether he was thrown out
by the sudden checking of the rapid
motion is not known, as no one of the
party saw what happened. Mr. Liiien

the terrific Impact of his body with

Philip Liiienthal was one of the most
; prominent as well as the most popular
of the financiers of this city. He was
closely associated with the banking
t firm of Seligman in New York, Mrs.

A careful examination of the body to
night disclosed the fact that the death
of Mr. Liiienthal was due to a wound
inflicted by the shaft of the sulky. The
sharp point of the shaft penetrated the
left side of the chest, puncturing the
lung and Ftriking the heart.

CITY HELPS TO SWELL FtXD.
Councll Votes $250 Toward Recep
tion to Oregon Athletes.
Councilman Baker introduced an or
dinance before the City Council yes
terday morning, which was passed,
authorizing the Mayor and Auditor to
draw a warrant on the special fund of
the City Council. payableto Dr. A. A.
Morrison, chairman of the general
committee having charge of the recep
tion of the Oregon athletes. The
amount thus given by the city is $250.
Councllmen Cottel and Cellars opposed
the passage of the ordinance, on the
ground that It is a misappropriation
of public funds, but all of the other
members of the Council voted for It.
Tom Richardson, manager of the
Commercial Club, spoke briefly In
favor of the ordinance, saying that it is
but showing Portland appreciation, in
part, for the splendid attainments of
her athletic sons, and Is the best ad
vertisement of the Oregon climate and
of the state and city in general that
could well be had. Councllmen Baker
and Vaughn also spoke for the passage
of the measure, and Councilman Ben
nett said that, as there is set aside a
sum for the use of the Council, he be
lieved it available for this purpose.
Mr. Cellars said he did not believe
the taxpayers' money should be appro
priated for such an occasion, and that.
In his opinion, the business men ought
to bear the expense. Mr. Baker re
plied by saying that he believed the
results to be had from a celebration
such as la being planned Is the best
possible use of funds.
It strikes me." said Mr. Baker, "that
if by the use of a little money we can
have the eyes of the whole world cen
tered on Oregon and especially on
Portland, It is money mighty well
I believe that the athletes should be
welcomed In fit style," said Dr. Cottel,
"but I feel that the money should be
raised by subscription among business

certain the necessary amount would be

which is usually attached to a line, had
broken away because of an overcharge
of powder. The gun had been fired with
the idea that the line would fall in the

for Black's arrest. The officer maintained
that he was carrying out the provisions of
the United States marine law, which re

against the gun's becoming rusted or
otherwise unserviceable In emergency. The
case will have a hearing today in the

Ex-Judge A. B. Parker will entertain
Mr. Bryan at his home In Esopus, N. Y.
The night will be spent as the guest of
ex-Senator David B. Hill, at Albany.
Speech on State Rights.
Mr. Bryan began by reasserting the
well known Democratic doctrine of state
rights and then said great corporations
haTT exerted Influence In extending Fed
eral authority, preferring Federal to state
courts. Congressional to state regulation
and had been seeking Federal Incorpora
tion. He declared that the Democratic
party would resist every attempt to ob
literate state lines, whether through leg
islation or Judicial interpretation.
He denounced the doctrine "that the
rights of the states can lapse through
nonuse, and that Congress Is Justified In
usurping the authority of the state If the
state falls to make proper use of it,"
calling it "as Insidious and as dangerous
an assault as has ever been made on our
constitutional form of government."
The people of tbe state can act with more
promptness than the people of the Nation,
nd If they fail to act. It must be assumed
that the people of the state prefer Inaction.
The real purpose that those have In view
who complain of the Inaction of the state 14
not more wtrict regulation of corporation,
but the relief of corporations from state reg
ulation. The Democratic party favors the full ex
ercise of the powers of the Government for
the protection of the rights of the people
each Government to act within lta constitu
tional sphere. Our platform demands that
Federal legislation be added to, not ubetl
tuled for, state legislation.
Corporations Game of Tag.
The predatory corporations have taken ad
vantage of the dual character of our Govern
ment and have tried to hide behind state
riKhts when prosecuted In the Federal courts
and behind the interatate commerce clause
of the Constitution when prosecuted in the
There la no twilight zone between the Na
tion and the state In which the exploiting
interest can take refuge from both. There
Is no neutral ground where, beyond the Juris
diction of either sovereignty, the plunderer
of the public can find a safe retreat. As long
as a corporation confines it activities to the
state In which It was created. It Is subject
to state regulation only: but as Boon a It In
vades Interstate commerce il becomes amena
ble to Federal law as well a to the laws
of the state which created It and the law
of the mates in which It does business.
How trict can these lawa be? Just as
strict as may be necessary for the protection
of the public.
Our platform outlines the regulation deemed
neceeeary and the regulation Is specifically
set forth In order that our opponents may
not be able to scare the public by predicting
hurtful legislation. Our platform, unlike the
Republican platform, says what It means and
means only what it say.
Railroads Are Different,
A distinction Is drawn between the rail
roads and other corporations. The railroad,
being a- quasi-public corporation and. as such,
being permitted to exerclee a part of the sov
ereignty of the state. Is subject to regula
tion at the hands uf both the Nation and the
state but this regulation is intended not
to cripple the railroad, but to Increase their
efficiency. The people at large are as much
Interested as the stockholders are In the suc
cessful operation of the railroad. Their
own pecuniary Interests as well as their sense
of Justice would restrain them from doing
anything that would Impair the road or re
duce its efficiency. The traveling public is
vitally Interested In the payment of wage
sufficient to command the most intelligent
service for life as well a property la In the
hands 'of those who operate the trains, guard
the switches and keep th track in repair.
The Democratic party would distinguish
between those railroad owners, director and
managers who. recognizing their obligation
to the public, earn their salarlea by con
scientious devotion to the work entrusted to
them, and those unscrupulous "Napoleons of
Finance" who use railroads as mere pawns
in a great gambling game without regard to
the right of employes or to the Interests of
Democratic Railroad Policy.
It Is In the Interest of honest railroading
and legitimate Investment that the Demo
cratic party seeks to ascertain the present
value of the railroad properties and to pre
vent for the future the watering of tock and
the issue of fictitious capitalisation: and It Is
In the interest of both the railroad and the
public that Jt seek only such reductions In
transportation rates as can be made without
wage reduction, without deterioration In the

service and without Injustice to legitimate
investments. The Democratic party lnelt
that In the matter of regulation of railroads
both the state governments and ire r eoecai
Government ehall act up to and yet within
their powers: for nothing else will restore
the confidence and good will that ought to
exist between the railroads and the people.
In dealing with manufacturing and trading
corporations the Democratic party draws a
distinction between those corporations and
they constitute the great majority of all the
manufacturing and trading corporation
which are engaged In a legitimate effort to
supply what the consumers neeo. snd the
very few corporations which are seeking by
conscienceless methods to take advantage of
the public on the one hand, while on the
other hand they bankrupt competitors, op
