Dakota and Montana to Butte.
Distance Is 1500 Miles,
CHICAGO. Sept 1. (Special.) Conflict
ing reports as to the route of the ex
tension of the Chicago, Milwaukee & 9t.
Paul Railroad to the Pacific Coast were
settled today by the official announce
ment from the general office In Chicago
that right of way had been secured from
Ulenham, 3. D., to Butte. Mont., 731
miles, and that construction work on that
portion of the line had been under way
since April. From Butte to Seattle the
route has not been laid out definitely,
Dut reports from engineers on various
rights of way are expected to be com
pleted in time to enable the officials to
announce definite plans within 30 days.
The cost of extending the road to the
Pacific Coast is roughly estimated at
JSO.000.000, or $40,000 a mile for the 1500
miles, the distance from Glenham to
Dutte being 731 miles.
Greatest Railroad System.
"With the completion of this project and
the extension from Chamberlain to Rapid
City In South Dakota the general offices
In Chicago will be operating approxi
mately 8000 miles, thus making the St.
Paul one of the greatest, if not the
greatest, system operated under one man
agement. The selection of the Glenham-Butte
routo was contrary to the expectations
of most railroad officials, who thought
that the extension would be pushed west
from Rapid City, 3. D. The Milwaukee
made no effort to correct this Impression
and quietly prosecuted plans decided on
at the outset by rushing the Glenham
Bulte project to a conclusion.
Country Thinly Settled.
The latter route was selected because of
favorable alignment and grade conditions
of prime Importance In reducing to a
minimum the cost of operation. The
country traversed by the Pacific CoaBt
extension Is comparatively new and
sparsely settled an compared with the
territory covered by the Chambeclaln

East of Evarts, the line will run for 80
miles through the Standing Rock Indian
reservation. It will pass through Miles
City, Mont., follow the valley of the
Musselshell River and enter Butte
through Pipestone Pass In the Belt
Mountains at an altitude of 6350 feet, a
few miles South of where the range is
crossed by the Northern Pacific.
Completed by January 1909.
The actual work of construction has
been begun already, and It is expected
to be built and under operation as far
as Butte .by January 1, 1908, and Seattle
within a year later.
The new line will run from 40 to 60
miles south of the Northern Pacific from
Glenham to Terry. Mont., where the two
roads will cross. From Terry to Forsyth,
along the Yellowstone River, they will
run parallel within a distance of two
or three miles. At Forsyth they -will
separate and again run 40 to 60 miles
apart until they approach Butte, where
they again will cross. The two lines
hardly can fall to continue close to
gether the rest of the way to Seattle.
West from Glenham the line Is 100 miles
south of the Northwestern extension to
the Black Hills.

licpuMlcun Strength Waning.
Mr. Bryan declared that Republican
strength la waning and that the time for
Democratic success Is not far distant.
"In 1896 they won by a tremendous
majority," said he, "and they also had
a very respectable lead over us in 1900."
"And they'll do It again," shouted a
man to the right of the stand. Instantly
half a dozen policemen had seized the In
terrupter and were rushing him through
the park when Mr. Bryan cried out:
"Don't put that man out, officers, don't
put him out. He's the man I'm trying to
Continuing, he said that the Republi
cans now admit that, if a Presidential
election were to be held at this time,
they have only one man who could have
any chance of success.
Roosevelt Practical Democrat.
. "He would have that chance only be
cause he has followed the Democratic
platform," said Mr. Bryan. "Roosevelt
lias not one atom of popularity that he
does not owe to the fact that he differs
from the party which he leads, and, If
Roosevelt can become as popular as he
Is by occasionally doing something Dem
ocratic, what would be the popularity of
a President who Is always a Democrat?"
Revision of Tariff.
Mr. Bryan said that the people had
been kind enough to build the trusts a
tariff wall and that the people were held
back by the prices charged for goods
sold by the trusts. "Republicans say
that the tariff must be reformed by its
friends," he continued, "I say that the
tariff must be reformed by those who
suffer, not those who grow fat from
the highly protected industries."
Mr. Bryan said that the Republican
party had changed the commandment to
read: "Thou ehalt not steal on a small
scale." No one could think the Republi
can party was sincere in Its punitive
prosecutions of the trusts until It put
some of the trust magnates in Jail.
He declared- that, while -he Is willing
to give Republicans credit for what they
have done toward the regulation of
trusts, they have not yet begun even to
"scratch the surface of that scourge."

Bryan shook hands with hundreds who
crowded around him and then left for
OPPOSES iTIIIHD TERM IDEA
Bryan Discusses Roosevelt and Ef
fects of Government Ownership.
NEW YORK. Sept. 1. William J. Bryan
arrived, from Bridgeport tW morning and
went to the Victoria HoteL After re
maining there a short Ume he left the
hotel to attend to some personal busi
ness. On his way from Bridgeport. Mr. Bryan
was asked what he thought about the ar
gument of certain Republicans that Presi
dent Roosevelt will be the next logical
Republican candidate for President. Bry
an said that if It were true as many Re
publicans .had declared, that he had com
pletely destroyed the Democratic party,
there ought to be dozens of able Repub
licans who would be available as a candi
date, as'lt would appear that almost any
Republican could win with the Demo
cratic party wiped out. There would
then be no necessity of giving President
Roosevelt what would be regarded by
many practically a third term. With
such an easy victory ahead for the Re
publicans, why, he asked, could not some
body else be given a chance?
When asked what he thought of the
criticisms by Democrats of his Ideas of
Federal ownership of railroads, Mr. Bry
an said that he never had advocated any
thing that was not opposed In some quar
ters. He was told that some of the Southern
Democrats seemed alarmed lest the Jim
Crow cars should be eliminated by the
adoption of his Ideas of Federal owner
ship. Mr. Bryan, In reply to this, said
that if the various states owned the lines
within their borders, the local laws would
continue to .be enforced.
He was asked If he meant that negroes
and whites would be separated If the
state had a Jim Crow law, to which he
replied that the state laws would natural,
ly hold good on local lines. He did not
care at this time to discuss the details of
how tie plan would affect the carriage of
whites and negroes on through lines un
der Federal control. He had noticed that
one citizen who did not give his name
was very much worked up about the pos
sible abolishment of the Jim Crow cars,
but he said he never attempted to answer
the arguments of men who did not give
their names, and that he hoped to talk
in varlousr parts of the country and deal
with the subject more completely than
he could In conversation.
DIXES AVITII NEWSPAPER MEN
Bryan Urges Them to AVrite for
Public . Good.
NEW YORK, Sept. 1. W. J. Bryan was
the guest tonight at a dinner given by
200 of the working newspapermen of New
York City. The affair -was strictly In
formal, tn accordance with the wishes of
Mr. Bryan, who stated in his letter of
acceptance that he would "Just like to
sit down with the boys to an old-fashioned
American dinner." On arrival at
his hotel here he was met by a commit
tee of the newspaper men and escorted
to the restaurant.
It was after 11 o'clock when he en
tered the dining hall, where he was
tumultuously welcomed. Mr. Bryan's ad
dress was entirely informal and non
polltjcal, dealing almost entirely with his
early experience as a newspaper man
and his relations later with other mem
bers of the craft.
Mr. Bryan appealed to all newspaper
men to ally themselves with the forces
that are making for greater public moral
ity and more righteous government. He
eald that, if the editorials of the news
papers were written strictly according
to the conscientious beliefs of men who
write them, the battle for right would
be quickly won. He called on newspaper
men, classing himself with them, to re
fuse assistance to any one who seeks a
private end rather than the public good.
He said no one should hesitate because
his influence was small. Inconspicuous
people, he declared, had brought about
a great reform in Philadelphia, and that
city today showed that there was no such
thing as total depravlt.
It was considerably after midnight when
Mr. Bryan concluded. He was loudly

CHICAGO, Sept. 1. (Special.) Police
Attorney Frank Comerford late this
afternoon swore a state warrant
against Ira B. Cook, the Evanston mll

of a disorderly house. Officers started

"We can hold Cook just as well as
Usner," said Mr. Comerford. "We have
positive knowledge that he knew the
character of the hotel, despite his pub
lic denials, and he is therefore the con
ductor of a disorderly resort. The fact
that he leased the real estate to others
does not absolve him from the illegal
acts of his lessees. All are equally cul
pable." Dr. Cooke today broke forth into a
stormy tirade and, goaded into a frenzy
by the impetuosity of his own speech,
defied the public opinion of Evanston,
when it was intimated that the. doors
of two of the select churches which he
attended might be closed to him in the

Princes a Terrorist.
ST. PETERSBURG, Sept. 1. The re
newal of terrorism on a large scale has
greatly intensified the hostility of the
ruling classes against the Jews, who long
have been regarded as the brains of the
revolution, and It Is believed, has cor
respondingly diminished the chances of
the Jews obtaining more than a nominal
enlargement of their rights. Every official
report of assassination or other crime
emphasizes the role played in it by Jews,
and the last week saw the launching of
two parties, "the National," at St.
Petersburg, and the "Russian Popular
party," at Moscow, the principal planks
in whose platforms are the exclusion of
Jews from all political activity and from
service in the army, the latter to be
commuted, as in the cases of Tatars and
Finns, for a money consideration. The
Moscow organization proposes to rid the
country of Jews by Indorsing the Zionist
movement and urging the government to
Seek Pleasure Amid Terrorism.
It is remarkable that amid all the
crime, blodshed and horror with which
the country Is filled the music halls and
cafes are thronged nightly by gay
crowds. A nrother of Premier Stolypin,

men, who, in the presence of the great
est crisis, he says, think only of pleasure.
M. Stolypin says It was always thus in
Russia, that officers on the eve of a
battle carouse and spend money that
would feed starving peasant families.
He calls It the spirit which Inspired the
orgies of the middle ages, while thou
sands were dying of the plague.
The only reaction noticeable is the In
crease in the activity of the Black Hun
dred organization. Count Konovnitsin,
the head of the organization known as
"True Russian People," whose life was
attempted recently, calls on his followers
to avenge his death by the destruction
of thousands of those "who are terror

Minneapolis Journal (Rep.) Both Mr.

his platform have a tendency to again
unsettle his position as a statesman to
Baltimore Sun (Ind.) So far as the
railroads are concerned, Mr. Bryan con
cedes that the time is far distant when
there will be Federal ownership. The
question naturally suggests itself, there
fore, why should he consider it wise or
expedient to raise the issue now?
Hove to Centralization.
Baltimore American (Rep.) Mr. Bryan's
plan looks to preserving the sensibilities
of the states he says their boundaries
and at the same time takes account of the
most advanced move toward centralizing
power In the General Government that
has ever been proposed.
San Francisco Call (Rep.) The only
radical departure against the principles
of his party in the speech made by Mr.
Bryan is his advocacy of Government
ownership of railroads. We Imagine that
Mr. Bryan will not carry his party as a
whole in favor of this proposition. It is
quite likely to split the party more hope-J
lessly than ever.
St. Louis Republic (Dem.) The address
forcibly presents benevolent Bryan in con
trast to the bellicose Roosevelt. It offers
a programme of law and peace as the
antithesis of an administration of force
and turmoil. It is a promise of a rule of
right and principle to take the place of
government according to brute power and

Philadelphia Inquirer (Rep.) On the
whole, Mr. Bryan gives evidence that he
is tonin? down; that, while he believes in
tariff reform and lower rates and Is strong
in his antagonism to trusts, he is not

not do for Republicans to minimize the
danger in a candidacy that is sponta

by a Democratic, party that Is once more

Philadelphia Bulletin (Rep.) The old
Democratic theory of local self-government,
by which the states themselves
should deal with the -affairs of the peo
ple, receives slight recognition from Mr.
Bryan. Whether he will succeed in unit
ing his party and inspiring its masses
with hope and energy remains to be seen.
Worn-Out State Sovereignty Idea.
St. Paul Dispatch (Rep.) In advocating
Federal ownership of Interstate and state
ownership of local railways, Mr. Bryan
betrays again that antiquated and worn
out notion of state sovereignty. Here he
falls short as a constructive statesman
of his fellow-Democrat, Senator New
lands, who proposes a plan for which the
people are now ready.
St. Paul Pioneer Press (Rep.) There is
too strong a vein of genuine admiration
and enthusiasm running through the wel
come to Mr. Bryan to be overlooked.
Cleveland Leader (Rep.) The Bryan of
1906 Is riper, more cultivated, more broad
ly interesting and agreeable than the
Bryan of 1S96. There was nothing in the
speech to put him out of the race or de
prive him of his commanding position In
his own party.
Revolutionist Brings Division.
Chicago Record-Herald (Ind.) Theie are
references in the speech to Injunctions,
compulsory submission to investigation of
Industrial' disputes, the certain success of
the eight-hour movement; but what will
be regarded as the feature of the address
is the espousal of the Government rail
roads proposal. All accounts agree that
this aroused the enthusiasm of the Hearst
followers and the radicals generally, and
already certain papers which had been
impressed by Mr. Bryan's "growth" and
"sanity" are hastening to absolve Demo
crats from the duty of following "this
revolutionist," who, they declare, has for
saken Jeffersonlan Democracy to adopt a
substantial part of the socialistlo pro
gramme. Thus Mr. Bryan's speech Introduces new
elements of division and doubt. He has

Is the Piano
( "Other pianos are
good, but I much
prefer the Weber be
cause its glorious
tone perfectly sus
tains the voice."
"N the early daj-s of opera, and
even as late as Rossini's time,
it was customary to accom
pany the recitatives with the
piano alone. On "first nights"
the composer was supposed to pre
side at the piano, there to receive
the laurels o success or the exe
crations of failure.
The piano is now seldom heard
as an integral part of the grand
opera orchestra; but in order to
preserve the atmosphere intended
quotes Governor Blanchard, of Louisiana,
tlonal Committee from his state, as fol
lows .regarding Mr. Bryan's speech at
Madison Square Garden:,
' "Mr. Bryan's speech was an able, bold,
feaoless. courageous exposition of the
opinions of a man recognized as a leader
of the Democratic party, but It should be
remembered that Mr. Bryan did not pro
pose to outline the next platform of the
Democratic party. A good many things
may happen between now and the next
Democratlo National Convention.
"Mr. Bryan's speech will undoubtedly
please thousands of people in the South,
but many will take exception to the part
of the speech which had to do with the
ownership of railroads by the National
Government and the states. So far as I
personally am concerned, any opinion I
may hold on that question is purely ten
tative. I have not studied the subject
enough to discuss It for publication. I
sat with the members of the Democratic
National Committee and I heard some of
them express dissent from Mr. Bryan's
views on that question."
Major B. J. Hale, of Fayetteville, N. C.
who was one of the members of the
committee on platform at the Chicago
convention of 1S96, said:
"We are moving along rapidly In the
South. The Democrats of North Caro
lina have passed resolutions favoring an
Income tax and a constitutional amend
ment providing for the direct election of
United States fenators. But Mr. Bryan's
ideas on Government ownership were a
'sticker" for me. I cannot quite digest
that part of his speech."
