GRAND ISLAND, Neb.. July 25.
Hundreds of delegates to the state
Democratic convention discussed In
the hotel lobbies tonight plans of the
contest expected to be waged In the
convention hall tomorrow.
Leaders of the fight against county
.option were here in force and appar
ently were confident nothing could de
velop to alter their stand against the
Insertion of a county option plank in
the platform to be adopted by the con
vention. W. J. Bryan, leader in the battle for
county rule on the question, did not
eppear in Grand Island tonight, al
though he had been anxiously awaited
j me smaii Dana of delegates who
r pieagea to the county option plank.
Goveiior Attacked In Speech.
A large meetlnsr nl.in rH .1
venlng, with Bryan as the principal
i""r. was aDandoned when it was
learned he would not arrive until to
morrow morning. A smaller . gather
ing- was neid In the Methodist Church.
Xn a speech in which ho .h..i, ...J
record and candidacy of Governor Shal-
jenDerger, state Senator Peck said the
optionlsts would carry their fight to the
convenUon. whether it-was a winning or
a losing battle, and that they would not
cease until the close of the primaries on
Many Delegates Against Option.
The Bpeaker asserted that the present
county option fight had been brought
about by the evasive policies of Gover
nor Shallenberger. who had refused to
permit a direct presentation of the initia
tive and referendum on the saloon ques
tion to the voters.
Leaders In the anti-county option fight
tonight declare that more than 4S0 of
the SS6 delegates to the convention are
instructed against county option and that
almost 200 of y.e unlnstructed delegates
will take the same stand. The speech
of Mr. Bryan on the platform is awaited
with much interest, but his opponents
insist that any effort to sway the con
vention will be futile.
Populists Also Gather.
The question of an indorsement of
the administration" of Governor Shal
lenberger, which had promised to be
an important issue before the conven
tion, has almost been lost sight of in
the county option warfare.
The Populist convention, which also
will be held in Grand Island tomorrow,
may lend complications to the Demo
cratic situation, as at a gathering of
the leaders tonight it was indicated
that a county option plank would form
a part of the platform. The leaders
also declared in favor of the initiative
and referendum on the matter.
Among the Populist delegates are
many of the one-time adherents of Mr.
Bryan, and it is believed by many that
the action of the smaller convention
may have an important bearing on the
deliberations of the Democrats.

LINCOLN. Neb.. July 25. The prin

With 103 delegates in attendance, the
tenth annual session of the head camp
of the Woodmen of the World for the
Pacific jurisdiction of the order began
its work yesterday morning. The offi
cers predict that many matters of im
portance to the order will be passed
upon during the week. Inasmuch as
the larger part of the delegates are
experienced in the work, no delays are
looked for in getting down to actual

ridge, Reynolds. North and Howze.
One' of the Important recommenda
tions that it is understood will be made
by the committee is the abolishment of
the accumulative, or "scaled" certifi
cate. It is pointed out that the Wood
men of the World is the only order of
any importance that still retains what
many .members consider "a weapon in
the . hands of competitors." The fact
that the old-line insurance companies,
they say, pay the full face on the poli
cies or certificates. irrenner-tiva
whether the deaths occur in the first,
second or third year after the insurance
protection is effected, puts the order at
a disadvantage in the solicitation of
new business and consequently retards
the growth of the order. Another mat
ter to be discussed. It is said, win be
the per capita tax for providing funda
for meeting the expenses connected
with the management of the order.
Harmony Expected to Prevail.
While it is rumored that trade
unionism may be injected into the ses
sions over the question of publishing
the Pacific Woodman, the official organ
of the head camp, prominent members
aver that the matter will be satisfac
torily settled without creating dissen
sion of any sort. It is understood that
the Pacific Woodman, which is printed
at a union publishing house, will ' be
continued as the official paper. John
F. Foley, of Fresno, Cal.. who offered
an amendment to the constitution re
quiring the officers of the head camp
to let the contract for printing the pa
per to the lowest bidder, will withdraw
the amendment, it is said, in the' inter
ests of harmony.

rEW YORK, July 25. A general
alarm was sent out by the police today
for a trace of Irwin Wider, assistant
cashier of the Russo-Chlnese Bank,
although, oddly enough, the District
Attorney's office said tonight no aid
had been asked of it by the bank, and
that no application for a warrant had
b;en filed. But this contradiction is
only one of a' series that have kept
step with every development of what

tlon in the history jot Wall street since
Cornelius Alvard stole $606,000 from
the First National Bank, served a term
in Singr Sing, and then retired to the
seclusion of a princely country n&Iace.
When the Russo-Chlnese Bank first
made public that its strong box was
snort, the amount was given as $80,000
all in negotiable bonds, a list of which
was furnished. This afternoon the
amount suddenly jumped to $600,000, of
which the additional $520,000 Is said to
be in stocks, partly owned by the bank
and partly by its customers.
Location of Certificates Unknown.
No positive statement lias been made
yet aa to.where these stock certificates
now are, or. with what intent they were
stolen. Inspector . E. . E. Markowskl,
now ln charge of the New York
branch of the bank, in the absence on
vacation of Manager Gertz, says he ii
convinced that Wider had outside ac
complices. "When Wider entered our employ,'
explained Inspector Markowskl tonight.
he was a modest, exemplary clerk
.Within 'the last, year I. felt sure . that
some man of strong personality had
gained control of him and changed his
whole personality.- I am satisfied that
Wider did not steal of bis own voli
tion or on his own initiative."
Attorney Knows "Where "Wider Is
It is perhaps with a, hope of laying
hands upon the power who shaped the
cashier to his own ends that the bank
has dealt so delicately with Wider. His
counsel and neighbor, L. R. Ginsberg,
has said from the first that the bank
was in touch with Wider, and even to
night, after the general alarm had been
sent out, Mr. Ginsberg reiterated:
"They know where he is, just as well
as J do."
Ginsberg was quick to supplement
this statement with twro qualifications.
First, he .wishes it understood that in
his attempts to arrive at an under

Crash to Valley Bo low -Is Narrowly
Averted Mrs. Bullock and Mrs.
Hill, of Seattle, Hurt.
TACOMA, Wash.. July 25. (Special.)
Loss of life was narrowly averted again
today when an automobile containing
Councilman and Mrs. Bullock and Mrs.
Hill, all of Seattle, swerved from the
Government road, turned completely over
and lodged against a tree. Had the
tree not been there to stop the machine,
it would have continued on down the
slope into the valley, 60 feet below.
The Bullock, car was coming down the
new Government road to Mount Rainier,
with Mrs. Bullock at the wheel. At a
point about three miles above here,
known as the "Switch Back." where the
road winds back and forth several times
in climbing the mountain, the front
wheels of the automobile struck a boulder,
causing the car to swerve from the road
and make for the embankment.
Mrs. Bullock was thrown violently
against the windshield and sustained a
deep cut in the left leg, in addition to
painful body bruises. Mrs. Hill, was in

while Mr. Bullock escaped without a
The car was little damaged, consider
ing the force of the collision with the
tree, and started - for Seattle under its
own power. The windshield was demol
ished, two lamps were broken and the
running board carried away. It required
the efforts of 12 men to right it and
push It back up to the roadway.
As soon as Park Superintendent Hall
was notified, he made an investigation
and, as a result, an' order was issued that
no automobiles be permitted above Long
Mr. Hall gave as his reason that the
road is dangerous and should not be used
for automobile travel until repaired. The
place where the Bullock machine went
over is near the scene of the Schoen

MONTESANO, Wash., July 25. (Spe

were driving to this city with milk
for the boat to Aberdeen was struck
by a freight train, early this morning,
Sam- Tockerton was instantly killed
and Joseph Cimmermon was badly in

Ndrthern Pacific crossing about a mile
and a half east of Montesano.
The train was going about 35 miles
an hour and struck just between the
horses and the wagon. Tockerton was
hurled about 150 feet and was crushed
almost beyond recognition. His com
panion was caught in some way on the
pilot of the engine. The train was
stopped and the injured man hurried
to the hospital here. The horses were
thrown about 60 feet by the force of
the collision, and one of them killed.
