SPOILED HIS Bryan the Victim of a Very Awk' '/ ward Blunder, Colleg;e Boys! . Yell for Bryan «t Newark, Del',—Warm Reception .1 'at. Dover. Newark, Del:;; Sept. 21— With his plans for a good rest in Washington disarranged by 'ihe action of (he I)da- ware escort committee William J. Bryan started out from Baltimore Wou- ctay morning a^GtSo o'clock/or Dover, Del.,, to fill aii'.engagement to speak in the afternoon. It was a bnd begin- n.ing of the-weeVs campaigning from, a physical stalYdjjoint. Mr. Bryan could have rermii-ned.Vbver night in Washington and hii.ve-;$iken a train from there at 7:50 a. jTU'itjhat would have brouylit- him to Dover ia'plenty of time. But rhe- Delnwnre committee told him he would be obliged, to go to r.vUtimore Sunday night and take the 0:25 Pennsylvania railroad train to oblige people a-t Porter's station. Del'., a place that would have been omitted from the itinerary if he hud gone on the later train. Mr. Bryan was up at live o'clock, after a few hours of sleep. Ho left the hott'l in Baltimore in company with Josephus DaivieK national comniil- tceiiKin from North Carolina, who \vlil nucoinpniiy him to New EngNvul, n:id John F, Salisbury nnd Richard 1!. K.;n- jiey, the Delaware escort comniit'ee, proceeded in <i carriage to the Union station and boairded the Pennsylvania- train leaving at 0:25. The first incident of the day was at-Havre de Grace, where n score of people boarded the any eorich in which Mr. Bryan was sitting pnd shook the candidate's sore and infinr..ed hands. At Pevryville, just across the Sus<|iie : ' hnuno river,' and at Northeast more people greeted him in the oar. . The- first cheer of the day : was given nt Elkton, reached nt S:ll, where about' JO were in the crowd. At, nearly every station somebody explained to Mr.' Bryan that his early coming- would dis-' nppoint many people whp w?re relying on adherence to the schedule which- the Delaware committee had <-aused to bo changed, College Doy» Yell for liryim. At Newark, Del., the candidate, changed .to a little branch line that carried him to Porter's .station, six miles away. Some Dehwnre college boys at Newark gave him an original Bryan yell and Mr. Bryan went out on the platform and shook hands with them. When Mr.. Bryan rf ached Porters he found not the hundreds of excursionists, on whose account he had been persuaded 'to lose his night's rest, but the members of the Dover reception committee. It was for their sake that Mr. Bryan h'ad'been routed out of bed nnd rushed to.an early train before his eyes were fairly open in the belief that he would disappoint' a great crowd if he did not make the connection for Porters. The journey from Porters to Dover was 'made over the Delaware division of tbe.Pcnnslvania railroad. He was accompanied by the Dover -reception committee'.and a delegation from the Young.Men's Democratic club, ol Wilming'top. '-. Among those in the Dover committee were L.' Irving Handy, democratic'.-caiidiaate'for congress, exGov: KobertJ. Reynolds, and cx-Secre- tnry-of State JO'hnJP. Hawkins. Middletown had ou't'a brass band and about, 300 people, \,.' v .Bryan ijecomos Ironical.' Mr. Bryan j^ade'his first little speech- 1 of the'day there'." Alt'had'just a little bit of irony in it. He said that every com- iminity entered-\w-as- solicitous about his voice and anxious to have him speak there and not tb.'speak anywhere else. He intended, h'<j^a.id, to save his voice ns much as possible to keep- it all through the cairip'aign, and he wanted each of his hearers to make a silver "speech at the pofjs on election day. The crowd cheered .and the train drew out. Ex-Gov. .T. P.'Copjiran joined Mr. Bryan at Middletowri'.'-VThere were more cheers at ClajHfln', but Mr. Bryan.dJd not make a speech. Mr.-Bryan ascertained definitely Monday that he would make.two addresses in Brooklyn, inr stead of one, and that the speech scheduled for Wednesday next had not beeiJL postponed until September - 39.'.-The confusion about the matter was caused by the arrangements for the second speech on the latter.date,, after Mr. Brynn's return from Maine. Mr. Bryan reached Dover at 10.:33.a. m. A big crowd at the railway.'station gave him a cheer-iind followed his car-, riage through the street to Capitol hp-, tel, where a short informal reception •was held. When it was over, Mr'. Bryan i •was spirited out of a side door'to the residence of Gen.-K. Hi'-Kcriney, where '. he immediately went to bed to make up, for some of the sleep he had lost; He. will speak at the fair grounds here-ot- 1:30 p..m. Gov. Watson and a reception committee met Mr. Bryan at Dover and accompanied him to the Capitol hotel. : Uryun Speak* ijndpr DilHimltien. ; "_ Much refreshed by his nap.'Mr.'Bryaai:. went from Gen. Kennedy's to "the Cap-;' Ital hotel, where he had dinner, aud then proceeded' to. the--state - fairgrounds, where 3,000 people-'seated ,011' the grand stand and gathered on tho track and ihclo'sure"received jhim with,; cheers.- ; .

Just aft.er he began to speak many of those in the rear of the platform began (shoult'i'rrg for the ; cnndidate to turn in their'direction.'''Tlie noise became so -•annoying .'that Mr. Bryan was obliged to ' Rtop and appeal for quiet. This did not have the- desired effect, and others of prominence added their appeals to his. Spinirse-mbla'nc'e of quiet was finally se- ciiredi-'and Mr. Bryan proceeded without '.'•'F.urt'het annoyance.
