WASHINGTON, Oct. 2. Only two of the

conference which had been arranged for at
the Navy Department to-day to treat of the
subject of naval armor. These representa
tives were Mr. Linderman, for the Bethle

any better rates than those set out in the

to reach a decision on the armor question,

further consideration in the course of a

Special to the Indianapolis Journal
NOBLESVILLE. Ind.. Oct. 2. The Re
publican rally in this city to-night was a
triumphant success in point of attendance
and interest shown. The Republicans are
gratified with the manner In which peoplo
turned out from all over Hamilton county,
and they feel that U indicates certain suc
cess for the Republican cause in the Ninth
district. There was a big 6treet lemon
st ration, which was witnessed by thronga
of people, and afterward a meeting was
held in the new foundry building of the
McElwalne-Richards Company. It is esti
mated that 7,000 people attended this meet
ing. Attorney General Taylor was tho
principal speaker, and he was followed by
Mayor John Dunlap, of Anderson. Both
were generously applauded. The presiding
efflcer of the meeting was W. S. Encell,
an employe of the strawboard works of
The crowd, which began arriving early in
the evening from the outer towns, was
augmented later by the arrival of a special
train from Indianapolis bearing the Marion
Marching Club and band, the First Voters
drum and bugle corps and Colonel Clark
with a detachment of Rough Riders. It
was estimated that the train brought about
500 people to the city. Noblesvllle was pro
fusely decorated and illuminated for the
occasion, the streets over which the parade
passed being particularly attractive in dec
orations. The parade was a big one and
was replete with the noise of drum corps,
bands and fireworks. J. G. Essington was
marshal, and was assisted by three aids,
Bert Flnley. Fred Hlnes and George Stev
enson. One of the features was a drum
corps of thirty pieces from Arcadia. All
kinds of banners, showing the sentiments
of those in the procession, were displayed
and cheered. A typical one read: "Repub
licanism opens factories; Bryanlsm closes
them." Dr. E. C. Lohr's shotgun brigade
attracted attention, and fired a salute when
the train from Indianapolis arrived.
The great building where the meeting was
held presented a handsome interior appear
ance. It has Just been completed, and only
one or two pieces of machinery have been
put in. It was aglow with electric lights
last night, and the decorations were chiefly
of the national colors. The flags made a
pretty effect. The audience was a fine one,
being composed of people from all over
Hamilton counts. Hundreds of women
were present, and they listened to the
speeches and applauded the sentiments.
The Marlon Glee Club sang "The March of
the Flag Goes On," and responded to an
encore. There was also some excellent vo
cal music by some Noblesvllle young men.
W. R. Fertig, president of the Noblesvllle
Lincoln League, called the meeting to or
der and introduced W. S. Encell, the chair
man of the evening. After dwelling briefly
on some of the issues of the campaign, Mr.
Encell introuueed Attorney General Tay
lor. Mr. Taylor said in part:
"This campaign is truly personal. It is
distinctly a Bryan campaign. He arbi
trarily and alone selected not only the bat
tlefield, but the plan of battle as well. He
sought advice from no one. He has con
ducted the battle without consultation be
fore the conflict began and without confer
ence since it has been on. No great Demo
cratic leader has ever commanded a bri
gade. Why? Because Mr. Bryan is not a
Democrat. He lias never been a Democrat.
The only connection he has ever had with
the Democratic party is to permit it to
vote for him. His first nomination came
from the Populists. That nomination the
Democratic party at Kansas City ratified.
Sitting on his porch at Lincoln, this dicta
tor of party policies gave the Democratic
party the option of inserting the Populist
doctrine of free coinage of silver in its
platform or seeking some other candidate
Here the attorney general discussed the
shifting of the battle from imperialism to
tree coinage, then to trusts and then scat
tering over the whole political field. Com
ing to the subject of labor, he said: "La
boring men of Noblesvllle, what has Mr.
Bryan to offer you In consideration for
your vote? Seek and you will seek In vain
for one word of comfort, one whisper of
hope In all his utterances for the American
laborer or the American farmer. He ad
mits universal prosperity, but he makes no
promise of Its continuance or suggestions
for greater prosperity. He proclaims the
ooctrlne of anti-imp sialism and antl-mill-tarism
as the higher attributes of the citi
zen. He knows there is no such sentiment
a- Imperialism in the heart or mind of a
single American citizen. He knows it
exists nowhere except in his vivid imagina
tion. To make an issue somebody must af
firm and some other person must deny a
proposition. Nobody advocates the doctrine
of imperialism. How then can there bo
an issue of imperialism. It abides only In
the mind of a man afflicted with political
dyspepsia and is but a horrid nightmare.
' WHAT DOES HE OFFER?
"What has Mr. Bryan to offer to the one
million five hundred thousand men and
women who are to-day working in the fac
tories at good wages, and who were out of
work four years ago? To-day what has he
to offer to the 00,000 railway employes
who are making good wages and who were
wholly unemployed four years ago? What
has he to offer to the 700,000 other railway
employes who are working at full 'ime to
day and who were working not more than
half time four years ago? What has he to
offer to the Jl.'AOOO.OOO of excess of wages
paid In 1! over to the railroad em
ployes of this country? What has he to
offer to the 5.000.Aiw employes of the work
shops and on the farms of this country to
day, who are working full time to-day,
who were working part time four years
ago? What has he to offer for the $1,400,
000,000 of products of the farm, factory and
mines shipped to other countries of the
world? Between the time when you go to
bed to-night and the time you retire to
morrow night $4.000,000 worth of the products
of the farm, the factory and the mines will
have left the ports of this country for
other ports of the world. All of this mar
velous prosperity has been of rapid growth,
and all within three years. Why should
anybody want a change?
"Independent of all higher motives, that
of patriotism, pride in the country's mas
terful strides to the forefront of nations.
prid2 In prowess of our arms on land and
sea, pride in the glorious achievements in
the field of diplomacy. I say independent
of all these, what has Bryan to ofTer to the
American voter? How does he propose to
benefit the wage-earner, the farmer, the
business man. or the man who has retired
on a fixed income? In what way does Mr.
Bryan propose to change the present condi
tions? Every man. both Democrat and
Republican, must answer that Mr. Bryan
has no fixed policy for the betterment of
the present condition of one single class of
the American people.
"The Indiana miner la to-day receiving
Cf cents, mine run, for pick-mined coal,
ogninst 49 cents for the same kind of coal
paid him four years ago. Then 7,200 Indiana
miners were either out of or were working
hhort time. Under the present splendid
management ot State affairs under Gover
nor ilount's administration the Republican
party has enacted laws and put them vigor
ously into force providing for arbitration
between employer and employe. More than
a hundred strikes have been settled by this
nonpartisan board of arbitration, and every
step of the way has been taken under Re
publican legislation and enforced by Re
publican administration. How does Mr.
Bryan propose to better the condition of
the wage-earner, either in his working sur
roundings or in hl3 compensation?
"Find, if you can. in all his speeches one
single suggestion of how he would in
crease the material advancement of any
class of American people. The Republican
party proposes both in national and state
legislation, by executive and administra
tive action, to continue the present pros
perous era and also to better working con
ditions, increase compensation and widen
the field of a just and righteous arbitra
tion." Mayor Dunlap, of Anderson, followed Mr.
Taylor, speaking briefly, but eloquently.
He covered the issues of the campaign in
a forceful style and devoted part of his
remarks to the veteran soldiers.
HAS HIS OWN MIND.
Deba Warna Social Democrata to Not
Be Misled by Bryanltea.
Special to th Indianapolis Journal.
TERRE HAUTE, Ind., Oct. 2. Eugene V.
Debs, who is in northern Indiana to-day
and to-morrow, and who will be in Indian
apolis Saturday, is letting it be known In
no uncertain way that he has a good deal
of feeling against the Democratic na
tional campaign managers and Mr. Bryan
as well. He has just Issued a warning to
Social Democrats not to be misled by the
reports started by Democrats that he will
withdraw in favor of Bryan. He has not
forgot the manner in which Mr. Bryan
and his friends discussed him a few days
after the election in 1690. He says that
just after he had made one hundred
speeches at Mr. Bryan's earnest solicita
tion, the leaders met In Chicago and sol
emnly declared that "such Socialists as
Debs" were responsible for the defeat of
Bryan and "must be got rid of."
He says: "The Democratic party has
chloroformed the Greenback party, tho
Union Labor party and the Populist party,
but bear in mind that it will not deceive
and destroy the Social Democratic party."
He says he has not the least fear of an
empire, and has not a moment to waste on
"miserable makeshift" issues. In '1808 Mr.
Debs had promised his home friends here
in the Democratic party that he would de
liver a speech in Terre Haute the night
before election. There were great prepa
rations for the meeting, but he did not ar
rive. As a matter of fact, he was called
to Chicago at the personal request of Mr.
Bryan and Chairman Jones and spoke in
rive places that day in that city. He tele
graphed here that he would not be able to
be in Terre Haute, but the local Demo
cratic managers prevailed on his friends
to suppress the telegram until evening,
that they might be able to get out a big
crowd. The result was the story was start
ed that Mr. Debs was not here for reasons
not creditable to him.
Mr. Debs is now coming to Terre Haute
the night before election to speak under
the auspices of his own party, and his
personal friends will have charge of the
arrangements for the meeting. The In
jury done him in 1SD6 he does not talk
about, but it was a palpable Instance of the
party managers willingness to make use of
his name for their own ends, regardless of
the injury inflicted on him.

Gen. Harrison May Speak
NEW YORK, Oct. 2. Concerning the re
port that ex-President Harrison, who came
to the city last night with his family from
the mountains, would make a few speeches
during the campaign, it was learned to-day
that the national campaign committee
wrote him about a month ago, asking him
to take some active part in the campaign.
Mr. Harrison replied asking the committee
not to press him to make any speeches
early in the campaign. He explained that
he had overworked himself in the Vene
zuelan boundary dispute, and needed sev
eral weeks of complete rest. He added
that he would be in New York early In
October on some legal business, and would
then put himself in communication with
the national committee. It is now said on
the highest authority that General Harri
son will not be asked to make any speeches
until near the close of the campaign till
after Governor Roosevelt has made his
tour of New York State. Then he will take
the stump and make several speeches, at

THE ELECTION IN GEORGIA.
Democrata Expect Sixty Thonsand
3IaJorlty by To-Day Vote. "
ATLANTA. Ga., Oct. 2. Sixty thousand
majority is what the Democratic party of
Georgia expects to obtain at the general
State election to-morrow. The Populists,
who have a ticket in the field, do not ex
pect to elect it, but in many of the doubtful
counties of the State they claim they will
name the local officers and the members of
the General Assembly. The Republican
organization has no State ticket to be voted
upon. In some districts congressional can
didates have been named, more for the pre
servation of the party organization than
for hope of election.
On the Democratic ticket there are sixty
nominees to be elected by a general vote
of the State. The usual number has been
Increased by a recent enactment of the
Legislature declaring for the election of
judges and solicitors of the judicial cir
cuits by direct vote of the people.

La r ce Popular Votes.
LONDON, Oct 3,3a. m. Up to this hour
the total number of members of Parlia
ment elected is 1S3, as follows: Minister
ialists, 147; Liberals. 20; Nationalists, IS.
The Nationalists elected include Mr. Wil
liam Redmond (East Clare) and Mr. James
Daly (South Monaghan.)
The feature of the election so far is that,
while the actual representation of the re
spective parties is only sllKhtly changed,
there is undoubtedly, in both London and
the provinces, a big increase in the Con
servative majorities, and the indications
are that the Conservatives will enter the
new Parliament with increased strength.

ROME, Oct. 2. It became known to the
public to-day that thieves had entered the
Vatican, forced a safe and carried off se

silver. The safe, situated on the second
floor, belongs to the management of the
Apostllc Palace, which looks after the
horses and carriages and the decoration
of St. Peter's Cathedral. Evidently the
burglars were well acquainted with the
apartment and prepared for the theft.
Thus far the Investigations by the Vatican
police have been without results.

Text of the Correspondence.
"WASHINGTON, Oct. 2. The War De
partment has just received from General
MacArthur, by mall, another batch of In
surgent papers captured by the American
troops. Among them are letters from
Theo Sandlco and Regio, agents for the
Filipino junta at Hong-Kong, which ex
press their views with much freedom. In
a letter addressed by Sandlco to Lieuten
ant Colonel Cassimirlo Tlnlo, the writer
says In part: "The present campaign and
some other circumstances have created in
America a political situation that may,
perhaps, produce the downfall of McKin
ley, which will signify the triumph of our
ideals. For the same reason the disastrous
war in the Transvaal, and more especially
the fierce revolution in China, have cre
ated a political atmosphere rufllciently
critical to cause the birth of a disturbance
of the armed peace of the great powers
that may result favorably to our aspira
tions, because America may prefer to sac
rifice some of her plans with respect to
the Philippine islands, accepting our Inde
pendence under her protectorate, rather
than sustain two wars and run the risk of
losing the whole archipelago. I believe
then that under the conditions so favora
bly colored by the present circumstances
it is necessary that we continue the strug

I be the first to accept the peace that I
believe to be necessary, though it be at the
cost of acknowledging the sovereignty of
the United States, since I consider that
our forces are now impotent to defend our
sacred and legitimate rights." General
MacArthur, in transmitting these papers,
says: "Possibly Sandico is as close to Ag
uinaldo as any of the leaders who continue
in open hostility."
Regio, writing from the Hong-Kong
junta to Sandico, describes the anti-Imperialist
convention In Philadelphia and
the Boston meeting to show that the Phil
ippine sympathizers are increasing in num
ber, and that the victories obtained by the
seasoned Filipino army exercise great in
fluence "on the very impressionable minds
of the American people." He concludes:
"This impression is and will be one of the
determined causes of our triumph, which
triumph will come soon if we but resist a
little more, now that but little Is lacking
to change the announced elections, as with

Committee on Education
RICHMOND. Va.. Oct. 2. The American
Bankers' Association convened In annual
session here this morning and was In ces
sion until after 3 p. m. On the stage dur
ing the opening session was President Wal
ker Hill, of St. Louis; Secretary James R.
Branch, of New York; Ellis H. Roberts,
treasurer of the United States; Governor
Höge Tyler. Mayor R. M. Taylor. Col. John
B. Purcell and others. After the associa
tion had been called to order and Invoca
tion offered by the Rev. Carry Morgan.
Mayor Taylor delivered a short addrest of
welcome on behalf of the city. This vat
followed by the reading cf an address of
welcome by Virgiuius Newton on behalf of
the bankers of R-'chmond, and a response
by President Walker II111, of the associa
tion. Governor Tyler then made an addres
of welcome on behalf of the State In which
he urged a broader basis of semrlty In the
lending of money.
The annual reports of the president. th
secretary and the treasurer were then
read and Just before the hour of adjourn
ment there were also read the reports on
Education.,, "Uniform Laws" and "Fidel
President Walker Hill. In his annual
report, referred to financial legislation la
the following language: "I think that all
the members of this aociatlon will agrea
with me that a variable standard of value,
lr to be deplored and avoided If possible,
though we may not agree as to what would
constitute such a standard and how It
could be best avoided. Furthermore, few
dispute the proposition that gold Is the
most unvarying money standard, though
some contend that it is not the only or
test standard to be had. Mr. Bryan e-aya
he first desires to preserve 'greenbacks
from legislative destruction, and that h
will then consider whether they should
ever b paid, and if so, how. I would firm
ly establish sold, as the only standard

present both teach that it Is the best tand
ard. I am always in favor of Improvement,
but I do not believe that everything so
called Is properly named.
"Since our last meeting a step though
not as long a one as I had hoped for hai
been taken toward fixing gold In the mone
tary scheme cf this country. I refer, of
course, to the act of Con?rress approved
March 14, l&Oii. It authorizes an increase
in the national bank circulation, and leaves

That Is, to be assured of gold In payment
of the interest and principal of these bonds,
hey must be readjusted, as It were, into
2 per cent, obligations on a 1 to 1 or to

interest Is concerned."
The secretary's report shows that where
as there were 1.511 members Oct. 1, lFTTJ,
who paid dues of J12.4H2. on Oct. 1 this year
there were 4.DO0 members paying dues to
the amount of ol,300. The net gain for
the year was 5S5.
These 4.500 members represent 51. 412.451. 40
in capital, surplus and undivided profits,
and $3.168.377,72$ of deposits; a total of

the total represented last year, and doei
not Include the assets of 422 members, pri
vate bankers, who do not make reports.
The committee on education, in Its report
relative to the training of bank clerks,
taid: "There Is no question that the forma
tion of a chain of bank clerks' association
throughout the United States Is perfectly
feasible, and that, conducted on proper
lines, it will do a vast amount of good,
that after the first year or so It can be
made entirely self-supporting, and that,
if it Is not done by some such body aa
the American Bankers' Association, the
work will go on spontaneousdy, but In
spots, and no such general and immediate
good results can be accompli hed as by
"To properly organize such an Institu
tion would necessitate the employment of
a man of first-class abilities, who could
devote his entire time to the work as sec
retary of the committee. The work would
be the preparation of a plan of study anj
meetings for the winter. This would be
got out In consultation with prrctlcnl
bankers and educators. The secretary
would then start In to organize one at a
time the bank clerks' associations In every
city. In a given city at a ertain time,
and In co-oieration with the bank officer
of th.it city, a meeting of the clerks would
be called at which t he committee's . re
tary would bo present and the crganlzi
tlon In that city perfected, ofilcers elected
and plans adopted.
"The jlj.:i would Include monthly meet
ings of the association of that city t
which the various subjects under study
would be discussed, pain-rs read, debate
carried on, or lectures delivered from time
to time by local or outside talent. At the
end of the season In the spring, examina
tions would be held, and certificates of pro
ficiency delivered to those members en
titled to them. The course of study arouU
be of the most practical character con
nected with everyday tran.isctions of bank
ing business and for the first year would
be essentially primary."
An Informal report was made on expre-a
company taxation, and the report cf tlv
detective committee was submitted. ' c ;
&exn were briefiy discussed.
