he was In the Slates, the colonel had
an opportunity of feeling the pulse ol

outlook. A Ilulletln icporter who
called nt the office this forenoon was
given tho following Interview:
"I havo talked with a great many
peoplo In the States and I have found
that nine out of ten of the substan
tial business men arc In favor of Mc
Klnley. This Is not nil. They were
sure that ho would bo elected.
"I ran up against a great many com
mercial men who had como Into per
sonal contact with the laborers and
farmers and they reported that these
two classes would be almost iinnntmoud
for tho reelection of McKlnley on nc
count of the prosperity ho has alrea ly
"1 think thnt the election of Mc
Klnley Is of prime Importance to this
country In order that favorablo action
may bo taken by Congress In regard to
tho Pacific cable.
"I talked to a man from Spokane,
Wash., a former attorney general of
the State and n man who was one of
tho most prominent Democrats In Mis
sourl, as his fathers wero before him.
He himself nnd the members of his
family had been In the Confedernto
fccrvlcc. This man told me that ho
couldn't stand the thing any longer ww
that It was not n light of Democracy
against Republicanism but u fight ot
llryanlsm against Republicanism. He
not only would fight ugalnst Ilry
onlsm but would take the stump for
McKlnley und sound money.

I saw was this business Is simply

'Orcat la Tammany and Croker Is his

that, If Ilryan Is elected, Croker will bo

behalf against the amended bill of II.

In an atlldavlt backing his notice
Foster says that at tho time of the
agreement with Hustace and Egan he
was tho owner of a valuable option for
the purchase of lands, lenses nnd other
property which. Irrespective of t.n
agreement, was worth all that ho re
ceived out of tho company. He offers
to prove, that. In tho open market, no
could havo sold his option alone, with
out taking into consideration any con
sideration ns a promoter, for all that ho
bargained for anil actually received
from the company or from Hustace nnd
ills services as a promoter he claims
wero very vuluablc, ho having spent
n largo amount of tlmo and labor at
such for which ho received nothing.
Further, ho contends thnt no Issue
was raUed In the proceedings as to his
title to tho company's stock or putting
tho stock In Jeopardy. Ho demands
his say In court tu protect himself. If
the court forfeit the stock, ho claims
the right still to proceed against the
company for recovery of the value of
his option and services.
Mr, Foster, moreover, asserts that
the complnlnnnts knew when they tools
stock that promotion fees were to b.
charged. Also he claims Uiat the

amount of tho stock should be Joined
