Y., Aug 31.—Mr. and Mrs. Bryan left Lakewood at- 7;30 o'clock Monday morning on the little Chautauqua lake steamer Celeron, accompanied by a number of people from Jamestown, At Bemua Point the boat made a lunding long enough to permit the candidate to shake hands with about'a hundred people. ' A crowd of about tbe Mime number greeted him at the Chautauqua landing-, where the Celeron' arrived ut 0:15 a. m. Then; were cheers I for Bryan and counter-cheers for Mc- 'Kinley.

Jamestown, N.-Y., Aug. 31.—William J. Bryan spoke Saturday nigh I in the convention hall at Celeron, on Laku Cliautauqun, two miles from this city,' The determination of twice as many people ns the hall eould hold to hear J the presidential candidate resulted in a crush which would have ended'in great loss of life if tbe panic which for halt an hour seemed imminent had not been prevented. In his speech Mr, Brynn' nccused his political opponents of having brought about a panic to secure thfi accomplishment of private ends. Tie Kaid they had forced issue after issue of bonds, regardless of prices and of the taxpayers who had to pay the prices. He spoke of the democratic administra ; tion 'as one whose financial policy had aroused- the' ire of the producers ol wealth.. The republican party, he said, lost its opportunity in not denouncing that policy .'nnd not offering to give the people'•silver. Referring to the republicans! he said they have'perined themselves in-where they mustU'eceive the attack of every person who loves his country better than his pocketbook. All his references '.to foreigners ruling this country financial!}' were cheered, particularly the statement that "if you cannot expect' pity, from St. Louis, how can you expect it from Lombard street?" His remark thnt the republican party had destroyed the market for silver nlso ' gained applause, and the cheers were even louder when he said that he would admit that "some democrats had become pnrticeps criminis in the transaction for the demonetization of silver." • Hevappealed to'his audience as lia t riots rto dbstroy the republican party.

Gen. James Jourdan, the president of the company, on the consent of all parties, was named receiver. The cause of the step was the inability of the company to meet accruing bonds and debenture indebtedness owing to the injuries that the trolley cars have done to their business. .Since the trolley cars were introduced the receipts have fallen off over- one-half. The trustees .say the road is now barely able to pay'oxpenses. • .-. No Money for Sulcldol.

Leach, of this city, has completed a number of measurements preparatory to making his annual report and is pleased with the prospects for a continued supply of gas in the Indiana field. The mild weathe* prevailing last winter aud the morn economic use of the fuel, taken together with the decreased use of gas owing to the large number of factories being- closed down or running light-handed by reason of the dull times, are beneficial to the gas supply aud give it a longer tenure of life. Prof. Leach says- that the indications are that there will not be as mnny gas wells drilled this year as there were last. On account of the mild winter, the effective efforts that arc being made by the manufacturers to husband their fuel supply nnd the fact that ninny of the large con-' sumers are using but little gas this fall, the draught on this field has not been aa heavy as expected, consequently the necessity for new wells does not exist in many localities. While the pressure is decreasing all over the field the indications are that the supply will be ample for a number of years, especially for consumers in the belt. About 400 square miles of good territory has not been invaded by pipe lines. Mother Doscrtd Four Children.
