Sailing the president. Mr. Tuft and the
republican party generally at every turn
William J. Bryan on the concluding
day of Ills present tour. Is traveling
through Iowa on his way back to Lincoln.
His progress across the State has been
larked by a series of demonstrations
'Which were nothln short of ovations.
The entire community at every point
Where his truln stopped seemed to turn
out to do him honor. In his speeches
he was more vigorous than usual.
In his attack upon the president. Mr.
Bryan charged Mr. Roosevelt with In-
terfering with the present campaign and
falling to remedy abuses. Mr. Bryan
said that Mr. Taft. if elected would be
unable to I'.cconipllsh any reforms even
with a republican congress behind him.
He talked at Muscatine. Letts. Colum-
bus June lion. Washington. West Chester
Keota. Harper. Slgourney and several
t other places en route here.
"BADLY CRIPPLED TKDDY
At Washington a woman In the crowd
'w presented him a Teddy bear one leg of

ij- comment. This veiled reference to the
'." president set the poo pie to laughing At
Harper a bride and bridegroom got on
"the train and when he came back Into.

' bouquet which be had received and
; Which she bashfully accepted.
At Muscatine Iowa. Mr. Bryan de-
nounced the president for participating In
the campaign ami. If anything in even
i stronger terms than heietofore.
i "There is another issue of this cam-
; palgn" he said "ami that is whether
1 am running against one man or two
men. I started out to run against Mr.
Taft on the ground tljat they had picked
a man big enough and able enough to
defend himself. Now I find the presi-
dent conies In and takes the lad in this
'"I. do not object to It. but 1 do believe
. It is a degradation of the office of the
president to make that office which be-
longs to the people a party asset In the
hands of one party. I Insist that the
people have a rlghl to elect their officials
without dictation from Washington and
I ask the president after he has nomi-
nated Mr. Taft to atand aside and let
lis fight It out before the American peo-
1 pie on our platforms.'
1 CAM PA ION t'ONTRllUTIONS.
Mr. Ilryan took up a recent statement
by Mr. Taft regarding the amount of
the republican campaign fund He quoted
the following as coming from Mr. Taft;
"Mr. Uryan says that we may not ex-
pect anything of the republican purly
because it is grverned by irn protected
Interests and that they conliiouted to
the campaign fimd. If iliev did so. I am
fclftd to udvi.-w you that the campaign
fund is not flattering and that no cam-
'a' palgn has been carried on more econom-
'' Ically than this campaign."
Mr. Itryan invited his hearers to notice
the fait that Mr. Taft did not deny that
' they accepted contributions from the pro-
i. "He docs not deny my indlctmmt."
I? Bald Mr Ilryan. "He simply says that
i If the protected Interests do govern fnat
the fund Is not flattering ibis year. But
k What does Mr. Taft call a flattering fund?
He and the public might differ as to

was the decoration of the vessel with

The men engnged In this work evident-

(Houston Pott Sptciai.")
ST. JjOriS September . Opportunity
to be heard by the Southwestern rail-
roads before the present freight rates
went Into effect was not granted to ship-
pers notwithstanding a written request
for a hearing rnade by the Natlon-
ul Industrial .Traffic leage to presidents
of rail lines throughout the United State
was the testimony of J. C. Lincoln before
the Interstate commerce commission at
Hotel Jefferson today. Mr. Lincoln is
president of the league and commissioner
of the St. Louis merchants exchange traf-
He testified that the shippers were ig-
nored no replies being received and
that when the matter was referred to the
Interstate commerce commission It was
felt generally that the increases In freight
rates would work a hardship. He stated
that he had learned the increases were
part of a general movement to raise
freight rates all over the country. He
stated the league embraced In lta mem-
bership some of the largest shippers and
trade organizations in the country.
In this connection under cross-examination
by Attorney E. B. Pierce of Chi-
cago general counsel for the Frisco-
Rock Island systems witnesses agreed
that if advances were made they should
be general in order to avoid dlacrirnl-
tiating against any particular section.
STATE RATES TOO IX) W.
He addlmtted under Pierce's interro-
gation that the State commissions' pro-
posed ratea In several States were too
low. He Included among the States thua
mentioned Missouri Kansas and Arkan-
sas bat he insisted that the Interstate
rate should not be raised to make up the
deficit- The question of a reasonable re-
turn on money Invested In their prop-
erties by the railroads again came up
"With money loaning at not leas than
4 per centT" ashed Mr. Pierce.
"Tea. for that class of propertr."
When Mr. Pierce attempted to Intro-
duce a hypothetical question covering m
perfect Investment as to property loca-
tion of railroad and capitalisation former
Judge S. H. Cowan representing the
complainants In the case objected say-
ing: "Such a hypothesis Is Impossible
with that class of property." This
caused a laugh at the expense of Mr.
Mr. Lincoln said his testimony was
along general lines and did not deal with
the specific merits of the advances. He
based his conclusions on conditions which
had prevailed previous to the Increase.
STEEL INTERESTS ASKED TO AD-
VANCE. That the "Steel Interests" asked the
railroads to advance shipping rates on
steel rails and connections was devel-
oped In a rigid cross-examination of P.
A. Leland chairman of the Southwestern
tariff committee. Mr. Leland submitted
to an hour of grilling without hesitation
or contradiction. He offered to lay all
correspondence and minutes of traffic
meetings before the commission.
The complaint filed with the commis-
sion by the merchants freight bureau of
Little Rock Ark. against the St. Loula.
Iron Mountain and Southern may be
dropped. It had been proposed te con-
solidate this case with the present hear-
ing. A. R. Bragg manager f the bu-
reau asked the commission to postpone
the case saving that matters were being
adjusted with the railroads. The com-
plaint alleged that rates between St.

raised without a corresponding Increase
