"Leaders ef Low Prises" The first performance of the Wyoming Wild West show, given by the Chillicothe Industrial League for the entertainment of the«ityig guests during the Good Roads convention, was attended by a crowd of 1500 persons. The general verdict was that it was the fineot exhibition of the kind ever in Cnillicothe, and Chillicothe has had the best of them including Buffalo Bill. Marvelous exhibitions of riding and roping delighted the big audience. Several accidents happened to the performers during the course of the afternoon, bul they were accustomed to these,and as they were not injured, they only served to add excitement to the regular features. Manager Irwin was kicked by his horse. The audience feared that he was hurt but he was on his feet in a moment.smilinf;; and bowiug to the audience.

BRYAN SCORES SULLIVAN Chicago, Sept. 5—William Jennings Bryan as the guest of the local Democracy, delivered today within eight hours two addresses. His first speech, which was made at a luncheon given in his honor by the members of the Iroquois Club, dealt entirely with the political issues [and the economic qnestions of the day. The second speech, which was made at a banquet given in his honor by the Jefferson Club, was devoted to National Committeman Roger C. Sullivan, of Illinois, whose resignation Mr, Bryan had demanded, but who was indorsed by the recent state convention which also declared itself in ; favor of Mr. Bryan as the next Democratic nominee for President. Mr. Bryan not only scored J Sullivan and his political methods unmercifully, but informed the Democrats present, many of whom were delegates to the recent state convention, that if they [accepted Mr. Sullivan they could not indorse him in any way. He informed them emphatically that he would have none of the approval of the Democrats of Illinois, and that he repudiated their recent in- dorsement of him.

URGE Declare This Necessary Before Good Work Can Be Done—Walter Williams Tonight. Tuesday night's session of tho Good Roads convention was an interesting one. A number of new arrivals were noticeable including Dr. R. H. Jesse, president of the Missouri State University, Columbia, and H. J. Waters, dean of the State Agricultural college at Columbia. Soon after the meeting convened it was voted that the chair should appoint a committee of three on credentials and of seven on resolutions. John Howatt of Clarksville,Mo., spoke of tho deficiency and complication in Missouri's road laws, and the remedy needed. He said that he would like to see the present road law obliterated, because it was confusing and contradictory. He would like to see a state road commission, one of which should be a practical engineer. He also recommend a law providing for competent road officers in couutics, aud a road tax payable in cash, so that tho road work could bo done by experienced men and done systematically. He expressed tho opinion that Missouri would have to do with dirt roads for many years to come, and urged the careful grading of roads, praising the split-log drag. The talk of Judge C.I. Dempsey of Bowling Green,which followed, had to do with the improvements needed in theroad system. Judge Dempsey spoke in favor of a rigid assessment law. He said he would like to see property assessed 60 per cent instead of 40. If this were done there would be no need of a constitutional amendment to provide road funds. He did not believe such a constitutional amendment would carry over the opposition of the people in the three largo cities in this state. He suggested that the present road law be repealed, or a great part of it, and that the legislature enact a law which wouldconstitute every township a road district. He would have a county board, one member at large aud one from ach township, whose duty should be to build roads and keep them n good condition. The small road district, he said, was too small. Roads must be;in somewhere and have an ob- ective point, and this could not be done in a small district. Judge Dompsey is strongly in avor of rock roads, and he favors county bond issues for building hem. He suggested that the pro- >osed county road commission of a given county should map out a general road system for the county, showing that the entire county would benefit from the expenditure, and that the bonds then be submitted to a vote. W. R. Goit of Kansas City gave what probably vvill be one of the most practical talks that tho convention will hear, his subject be- ng "Road Drainage." He illustrated his talk with tho use of a blackboard, and showed his audience how to put in tiling and culverts, how to grade roads effectively, how to avoid hills, and imparted much other valuable information. It is to be regretted that Mr. Goit's talk could not have heard by every road overseer in Missouri. Tuesday morning was devoted to road building. Work was done on the Linueus road, oast of Highview, and on the south Utica road, about a mile being built in each place. Great crowds went out to witness the demonstrations. The afternoon sassion Wednesday was held in the Luella theatre. A paper was read by F. M. Filson, postmaster at Cameron. F. J. Spalding, dean of the engineering department of the Missouri State University, spoke of "The Value of Skilled Supervision in Road Work." His talk was very practical and drew out a number of questions from his hearers and a general discussion followed. A, M. Joijoson, highway of the Illinois road department, giving the Missourians some valuable suggestions. A fine program has been arranged for tonight at the Luella theatre. Tho chief feature will be an address on "Missouri and Good Roads" by Walter Williams of Columbia. Mr. Williams arrived in the city today. B. E. Zimmerman, of Savannah, Mo., county clerk of Andrew county, will read a paper and G. W. Donaghey of Conway, Ark., an experienced road contractor, will speak on "How to Build Roads.' 1 Tomorrow afternoon speakers will be Dr. R. H. Jesse and Senator W. J. Stone.
