Have Heeu Taken.
New York, Aug. U. It was not until
one o'clock this afternoon that William
J. Bryan was able to announce defi
nitely his plans for the next few weeks.
The decision arrived at last nlpht that
he should take a rest at some quiet re
sort to recuperate from the effects of
the severe strain Imposed by his tour
from Lincoln to New York and to give
him the opportunity to write his formal
letter of acceptance. Bet J!r. and Mrs.
FSrynn to thinking ubout a suitable place
and It was finally decided to accept an
Invitation tendered sume time ago to
visit Mr. and Mis. K. C. Perrlne at their
home. I'pper lied Hook, in Duchess
county. New York. A telegram was
sent Mr. and Mrs. Perrlne and when the
answer was received this afternon say
ing that the visit would be agreeable at
this time, Mr. Bryan announced his pro
gramme. Mrs. Periine was a teacher
at the Female academy In Jacksonville,
111., while Mrs. Bryan was a pupil there.
Mr. Bryan also knows her well, as he
was a student at the same time at Jack
Standing in the vestibule of William
P. St. John's residence. No. 125 West
Thirty-fourth street, Mr. Bryan told a
group of newspaper men what his plans
were. He said that he, Mrs. Bryan and
Mr. Sewall would leave New York over
the New York Central some time tomor
row forenoon, probably at 10.45, for Irv-Ington-on-theHudson,
to stop over Sun
day with John Brlsbln Walker, editor of
the Cosmopolitan, and an old friend.
Mr. Sewall will return to Maine from
Irvington. while Mr. and Mrs. Bryan
will proceed on Monday to Upper Hed
Hook. They expect to be with the Per
rlnes a week or ten days and on the con
clusion of the visit they will start west.
WILL OET OFF AT BUFFALO.
Mr. Bryan said he expected to stop
at several places on his western jour
ney among them Buffalo, Erie and
Cleveland. He was not prepared to
give the dates, but it Is known that
he will be In Buffalo August 2" and
In Kile on the 29th. At the latter place
he will address the convention of Dem
ocratic clubs of Pennsylvania. He will
reach Lincoln about September I anil
probably receive the notification com
mittee of the national silver party at
that time. Beyond the Information
contained in this statement Mr. Bryan
had nothing to say. With reference
to his physical condition he told a
t'nlted Associated Press reporter
with a smile that .while he felt that
he had not reached the end of his
physical strength and power, he felt
it was necessary to have as much rest
and quiet as possible while engaged
In the composition of his letter of ac
ceptance. Mr. Bryan will not make
any speeches, according to present In
tentions, on his trip to I'pper Red
Hook. He said his speaking pro
gramme had not been arranged, but
that he might speak again before the
election. Mr. Bryan's voice Is still
husky, but he looks well and strong.
Th decision to proceed west im
mediately after the visit to I'pper Red
Hook is understood to mean an entire
abandonment of the contemplated
visit to Mr. Sewall at Bath, Maine.
Whether Mr. Bryan wilt visit New
England during the campaign Is doubt
fill, but it is suid that his personal
inclinations are toward a New Eng
land campaign and he may go there
when he comes to New York again.
This afternoon Mr. and Mrs. Bryan
went to Prince's photograph gallery,
Broadway and Sixteenth street, and
had more photographs of themselves
taken. Afterwards they took a drive
about town with Mr. St. John and Mr.
Sewall. Among the callers to-day were
Senator Stewart of Nevada, Congress
man H. C. Sulzer and ex-Governor
Senator Jones, chairman of the Dem
ocratic national committee, said to
night that he would not announce the
dlforent committees until after he
reaches Washington. He will arrive
In that city to-morrow morning. Late
this afternoon Mr. and Mrs. Bryan,
with Mr. Sewall and Mr. St. John,
drove to Coney Island.

Fatal Effects of the Warmer Weather
Philadelphia, Aug. 14. While the
maximum reached by the weather
bureau thermometer to-day was but
82 degrees, a fall of 12 degrees from
yesterday's maximum, the relief was
not bo great as the difference would
apparently indicate, as 85 per cent, of

FOUR MEN WOUNDED
A Dastardly Attempt at Murder Non-
Union Men Attacked Results
of the Brown Strike.
Cleveland, O., Aug. 14. One of the
most dastardly attempts at murder ever
laid at the door of organized labor took
place here tonight. It being the outcome
of the great Brown strike that has been
going on in this city for the past three
months. As a result, four men are
wounded, two of them are liable to die
almost any moment.
On June 25 the great Brown hoisting
and conveying machine company dis
charged Its K00 employes because of a
threatened strike. Since that time riot
ing has been the chief pastime of the
strikers and their thousands of sympa
thizers. About a week ago seven companies of
military were withdrawn from the
Brown works and the police protection
taken away. Tonight a party of ten
strikers went to the corner of Wade
Park and East Madison street and lay
In wait for a party of workmen who
came by on their way home from the
Brown works. There were nine men in
the little group of workmen with their
dinner pails. Without a moment's
warning the strikers rushed from be
hind a saloon where they were In hid
ing, and with a cry of "scab" began
shooting into the crowd. A few of the
workmen were armed and returned the
Are. The battle lasted about three min
utes, in which about thirty shots were
fired, when the strikers fled. Four men
were shot two fatally. Of the number
two were strikers. George Plumb, one
of the workmen, was shot In the head
and is expected to die, while Caldwell,
another workman, was snot In the right
leg and in the shoulder. Plumb was
taken to a hospital, where he will die.
Two of the strikers were shot, and one
will die. The one fatally injured is
George Larson. He was shot through
the lungs. The other, whose name Is
Hikley, is not fatally injured. Several
people were hit, but their names could
not be learned. The police made several
arrests among the strikers.

A rilQHTY PERILOUS UNDERTAKING.
Criticises His Friend Crittent en lor For
saking "Sound Moipy."
WILL VOTE FOR MAJOR M'KINLEV
The Chicago Convention a Con
glomerution of All Parties with
Populism and Anarchy in the As
cendauW.The Platform Is Populism
KugarConted-It Candidate a
Washington, Aug. 14. A copy of an
open leter from General J. O. Shelby,
Cleveland's marshal for the district of
Missouri, and the personal friend of
Senators Vest and Cockrell, to ex-Governor
Crittenden, now counsul general
to Mexico, In which the general criti
cises his friend for forsaking "sound
money" for the cause of silver, and
declaring that he (Shelby) must vote
for McKinley and "sound money" has
reached the Republican committee and
It will be given a wide distribution.
The friendliest tone prevades the let
ter, but the general expresses his as
tonishment nt the sudden "Hop" of his
old friend, and his "surprise that you
have, with hasty hand chained your
self to the triumphal chariot of three
governors, Altgeld, Stone and Tillman,
a turbulent trinity of strong political
petrels whose piping notes have al
ways presaged storm and shipwreck
to the Democratic party."
Referring to the convention, OeneraJ
Shelby says that the Chicago conven
tion was not Democratic. That Is was
a conglomeration of all parties,
anarchism and Populism being In the
ascendency. Democracy Ih rock-ribbed
and stands upon principal and cannot
be. swept from Its feet by mixed meta
phors and graceful periods. Demo
ciats are not a Roman rabble to be
swerved from duty by a Nebraska
After discussing the platform at some
length. General Shelby said:
I Bee the way clearly and shall follow
the old paths of Democracy as luid out by
the fathers of the republic. Is there one
line In the practical declarations of the
Chicago platform that was ever there be
fore? Of the practical living Issues now
present, there Is as marked an absence ot
true Democratic doctrine In the Chicago
platform as there Is of vital piety In one
of Colonel InKersoll's addresses. You
must go to Ocaia and Omaha to find ihe
progenitors of the vital Issues presented
at Chicago. Repudiation of public nnd
private faith and social disorder will be
the twin offspring of the-unholy alliance
between the Populists and the Democrats,
whose bans were published at Chicago and
whose marriage ties were consummated
at St. Louis last month. The alien blood
imported from Omaha will taint the De
mocracy and make the Issue spurious.
Calling General Crittenden's attention
to the position he assumed at the out
break of the war when he (Shelby)
nnd others besouht him to Join the
Confederate!), General Shelby con
cludes as fololws:
I will abandon friends, party and kin
dred rather than yield even Implied con
sent to such a base assortment of polit
ical heresies. A good patient will not
take a quack's medicine. It he does he
dies, and if the party swallows the Chi
cago prescription Its days are numbered,
Its death certain. The Chicago platform
is Populism sugar-coated. Its candidate
is a rising demagogue, a dangerous rhet
orician, who, for a momentary epplauxe,
would fight a torch and apply it to the
very citadel of American liberty. There
should be but two candidates, and we who
believe In sustaining law, order and sound
currency, should vote for McKinley.
Those who favor free and unlimited coin
age of silver, disorder, misrule and ul.
timate repudiation, should support Bryan
and take their choice between Sewall and

sent to General Powell Clayton a list
of speakers and assignments.
Among the speakers is tthe Hon.

London, Aug. 14. The Queen's speech
proroguing Parliament was delivered to
the House of Commons at 6.10 this af
ternoon. The speech says: "My rela
tions with the powers continue to be
friendly. The hostile movements of the
Dervishes in the valley of the Nile
against the position occupied by Italy
east of that river convinced me that It
was necessary for Kgypt to take steps
toward arresting their advance. By my
advice and sanction an expedition has
undertaken to restore to the govern
ment of the Khedive as far as Dongola,
the territory which was lost a decade
ago. The operations of the expedition
are proceeding, and by the brilliant ac
tion at Fereketa a large proMirtion of
the territory has already been recov
ered. The condition of portions of Turksy
continues to cause anxiety and at pres
ent Crete Is the principal centre of the
disturbances. I have observed strict
neutrality, but In conjunction with the
powers I endeavored to reconcile the
contestants by proposing a system of
government which should be equitable
and equally acceptable to Christians
I regret that a serious rebellion, sig
nalized with cruel murders, has broken
out in Matabelclund, the rising having
extended into Mushonaland. The work
of defense and repression hns been
undertaken. the settlers displaying great
courage. They have since been rein
forced by Imperial and old troops."
The speech refers to thu Mutabele
country and expresses hope that thr
rebels will shortly accept the clemency
which has been offered to them.
TUB INDIAN FRONTIER.
Iteferirng to the matter of the delimi
tation of the Indian frontier the speech
soys that the engagements between the
Shah of Pers'u und the Ameer ot
Afghanistan upon the subject are
friendly to the Chltrals. Relief gar
risons sent to Chitrul have received
the co-operation of the tribesmen.
Her majesty expresses her thanks to
the house of commons for their provis
ions and services for the year and con
cludes by saying that she has given her
consent with pleasure to the measures
for naval defences, for lessening the
agricultural taxes, for the protection
of the cattle from disease and
measures for various other purposes.
Including the Irish land bill.
In bidding farewell to the members
