Col. Blees- had not been seen around the^>ffi.ce all day, and Fitch, thinking that he might havo left the hotel without turning over the key, sent a bell toy up to the room.

After the autopsy the body was turned over to Undertaker Collins 'siou of his views on Bryan's piansj ! for government ownership of rail! roads.. It received from Williams the following rep'y : "I am opposed to government ownership of railroads, irrevocably,'now and forever, in theory and in pra-ctice -a question concerning which Mr. Bryan and I agree to dissagree. We shall simply vote it down if offered as a plank of of the Democratic platform. Meanwhile let us not magnify Democratic differences. "There are so many things we are agreed upon—let us magnify them. Push them to the front if we can. Bryan is not infallible and does not pretend to be. He is right about so many things, eloquently and greatly right, but absolutely and altogether wrong about this one thing, esnecially from the standpoint of radical peace and quiot in tho South. Let us strongly regulate railroad rates, but not operate railroads." ALBiN CRUSHED TO DEATH SATURDAY EVENING Ten Meat Caru in Bitch Caused Brokon Journal oa One of the CUrs—Was Bad "Wreck.
