Ministers Interested Will Make a
Proposition to Business Men's
A meeting of the directors of the Busi-
ness Men's Club will bo held this after-
noon at 4 o'clock to listen to a proposi-
tion to be made by Dr. J. M. Carroll of
Waco, until recently a member of tho
board of the Baptist Educational Com-
mission, and to the Baptist ministers of
the city in regard to building a Baptist
Academy in San Antonio.
The Baptists of Southwest 'JVxas arc

men of San Marcos have already made a
liberal proposition amounting to several
thousand dollars for the location of a
I>r. J. Ai. Carroll arrived here yester-
day and is at the New Maverick Hotel.
In company with several of the Baptist
ministers of the city yesterday he called
on L. J. Hart, J. H. Kirkpatrick, C. B.
Mullaly, I. N. Brown and several other
prominent members of the Business Men's
Club and arranged foi the. meeting this
afternoon. A number of the Baptist
ministers favor San Antonio and are
anxious tin* school should be located
here, provided the city will make a bet-
ter proposition than San Marcos.
The minimum ootft of the Baptist Acad-
emy will be $100,000. It is probable that
the expenditure on the buildings and
grounds will go far above that amount.
The persona interested have not stated
the amount of the bonus they will ex-
pect, but will do so at the meeting of the
directors of the Business Men's Club.
The members of the club who have- been
consulted are favorable toward raising a
bonus for the school.
Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock there
will be a meeting in San Antonio of all
the Baptists of Southwest Texas to talk
about the proposed school. Sunday after-
noon there will be a mass meeting of the
Baptists of San Antonio and of other
Baptists throughout tho country who
may be Interested.
Dr. Carroll is well known as a worker
in the educational movement in Texas,
having aided materially in building the
Baylor School at Waco.

O'Reilly, historian of two popes—Pius IX
and Leo XIII—and ITothonotary Apostol-
ic, was 95 years old yesterday. lie i§
said to be the oldest living Catholic pre-
late on this side of the Atlantic. Mon-
signor O'Reilly is staying in the castle

Hudson, and is attended by the nuns and
Dr. Maguire of New Itochelle. He has
been at St. Vincent's for sfix years and

quently siid mass since, and almost ev-
ery day recites at least part of the office
at Matins. Archbishop Farlev j;* kept
informed daily of his condition. \I-
i hough he was very weak yesterday
there was nothing alarming in his con-
dition. The nuns and attending physi-
cians, however, have little hope that he
will live much longer.

WACO, Tex., Sept. 12.—The officers
are fast clearing up the mystery con-
nected with tho assassination of Mat
Block, the Hebrew merchant, which took
place Sunday night.
Monday morning when the officers
were notified of the killing, the actions
of a negro who worked for tho deceased
caused them to suspect him, and
was arrested. Last night this negro,
who gives his name as Jesse Jones
made a partial confession. He said
that he was one of the men who did
the killing, and that he had part of
the money. He led the officers to the
place where he lived and $130 was found.
Later $25 was found under thei same
house, and the officers believe they will
find the rest of the money.
The negro was taken out of the jail
this morning by Sheriff Tilley as a mat-
ter of precaution and is in some North
Texas jail. The officers here refuse to
disclose the place of his whereabouts.
A brother of the deceased from New
Orleans arrived last night and will re-

Two Negro Soldiers Killed and Eight
Wounded in Retaliatory As-
sault by Fanatics.
SAN FRANCISCO, Cal„ Sept. 12.—A
special dispatch from Manila says:
In revenge for the punishment in-
flicted upon them by regular troops for
killing Lieut. Roscoe Treadwell of the
Philippine scouts, the Pulajanes at-
tacked a detachment of the Twenty-
fourth Infantry (colored) on the night
of Sept. 10, and before they could be
driven back they killed two and wound-
ed eight colored soldiers.
Early in the evening of tho 10th ban-
dits rushed Camp Treadwell and suc-
ceeded in killing an officer. Colored
troops came to the rescue and drove
the fanatics from the field, killing and
capturing a large number.
The Twenty-fourth then went into
camp near Bara Leyte, near the scene
of the fight. The band returned dur-
ing the night, boloed the outposts and
rushed the camp. In the confusion and
darkness the regulars were badly cut
up before they realized the Pulajanes
were upon them. -The colored troops
were attacked in tents, the natives
slashing the canvas with bolos and fall-
ing upon the sleeping soldiery The
men of the Fourteenth, aroused by the
shout of their comrades, went into the
fight with pistols and bayonets a ad

wounding many of them. In the dark-
ness a few of the Pulajanes escaped.

LOUISVILLE, I\y., Sept. 12.—On the
occasion of his entry to tho South, where
his recent declaration as to Government
ownership of railroads has aroused the
most opposition, William Jennings Bryan
made tonight a more explicit statement
as to his position in the matter.
In dead silence he read a lengthy state-
ment elaborating his position, but de-
clared that the "making of platforms
rests with the voters of the whole party
and I never have and never will attempt
to force my opinions on those of any
Tew men on the people."
While thus Indicating that the doctrine
of Government ownership Is in tho hands
of the voters, Mr. Bryan's speech indi-
cated plainly that nothing has as yet
occurred to shako his belief in tho ul-
timate necessity of it. He declared that
lie would gladly make any sacrifice in ex-
change for the assurance that regulation
instead of Government ownership would
answer the needs of the people. He ex-
pressed grave doubts as to whether regu-
lation would ever suffice. He also took
pains to present arguments to convince
his hearers that Government ownership
of trunk lines and State ownership of
State lines ' not on preserves the rights
of the State, but will permit the people
of each State to adopt Government own-
ership when they are ready for it."
A tremendous yell arose when at the
finish of the statement Mr. Bryan, with
all the emphasis he could muster, recalled
to his hearers that "whenever I saw a
danger threatening the peoplo I have
spoken out without anybody's permission
or querying what the effect might bo on
LOUISVILLE, Ky., Sept. 12.—Entering
the Southland for the first time in two
years, W. J. Bryan today received a wel-
come which in warmth has not been sur-
passed by any of the greetings given him
since his return from his tour of the
world. His arrival in the city provoked
a great outburst of acclamation from,
thousands of marchers, and yet more
thousands on the streets.
His reception at the armory tonight,
where he addressed a crowd of 12.000
people, was nothing less than a volcanic
eruption of enthusiasm.
The rnassmeeting at the armory con-
stituted Kentucky's greeting on behalf of
the South, and although the attendance
of Southern notables was smaller than at
first expected, on account of Mr. Bryan's
recent acceptances of numerous invita-
tions from other Southern cities, still it
was a representative Southern gathering*
graced by the Kentucky leaders of Dem-
ocracy, a number of prominent Demo-
crats from other Southern States and a
gr< .is rnassmeeting of citizens from Ken-
tucky tuid Indiana.
Mr. Bryan was welcomed to Kentucky
by his whilom opponent, Henry Watter-
son, who presided over the meeting. Tho
<»yier speakers preceding Mr. Bryan were
Senator t'armack of Tennessee, repre-
senting the South, and Senator W. J.
Stone of Missouri, who is the guest of
When Mr. Bryan entered the hall lean-
ing on the arm of Mr. Watterson there
was a demonstration that lasted ten
minutes, thousands of flags being waved
in unison with the cheers that swept over
A. soon as the noise had subsided. Mr.
Watterson began his address of welcome.
Government the Issue.
Mr. Watterson spoke in part as fol-
"There is but one paramount issue for
the next Presidential battle, and that is
the rescue of the Government from tho
hands that have misused and debauched
it, and its restoration to the custody of
the plain but sovereign people. Tho
parties to it are, upon the one hand, a
standing army of trained politicians 'held
together, not alone by the cohesive
power of the public patronage, but by a
community of interests as underlying as
it is unthinking, richly caparisoned in all
the panoply of successful war, and on
the other hand the mass and body of
those who hew the wood and draw tho
water and pay the taxes, undrilled, un-
skilled and widely separated; often
groping in the dark, sometimes rnis-
diTctcd by divided counsels: always
lacking the resources by which results
are reached and dangers turned, but
never yet united except to conquer.
"It Is veteran troops against the raw
militia, an unequal, though not a boot-
less array, ;is many a well-fought field
in days of old bears witness. Give us but
half the discipline of the regulars and a
tit lie of their equipment and we shall
drive them before us across the barri-
cades of criminal wealth, though led by
Theodore Roosevelt himself.
Bryan the Chieftain.
"I recognize as our chieftain in this
approaching conflict tho Hon. William
Jennings Bryan of Nebraska.
"It costs me no sacrifice of either
personal preference or pride of opinion
to make this declaration. Mr. Bryan and.
I have not always agreed as to the
means: we have never disagreed afc to
the end. The appeal to the moral nature
of the people which he has made with so
much eloquence and power, 1 was making
when he was a boy. He grew to man-*
