Every American to Be

venson, on his first visit to his homo In
Bloomlngton since the nomination for the
vice presidency, was to-day tendered an Im
pressive nonpartisan -welcome by his friends
In this city and county.
Mr. Stevenson arrived from Lake Mlnne
tonka, Minn., via the Chicago and Alton at
2:10 p. m. Ho was accompanied Dy Mrs.
Stevenson, his daughter. Miss Letitla, his
con. Lewis G., and his son-in-law. the Rev
erend Martin D. Hardin of Minneapolis. A
large crowd had assembled at the Union
Depot, and, when the train arrived at 2:40,
a band on the depot platform was playlns
"Tho Old Folks at Home."
When Mr. Stpvenson stepped from the
car, friends by the score rushed forward to
ehako hands and offer congratulations.
Headed by the band, a line of carriages pro
ceeded through the business and rcsidoico
streets to Franklin Park, where the formal
greeting was to be given. In the first car
riage with Mr. Stevenson were Mayor
Thomas, president of the day, and Judge.
Lawrence Weldon, welcoming orator, both
Republicans, and both old time associates
of Mr. Stevenson. Mrs. Stevenson, Mrs.
Weldon. and two lady friends, occupied the
Fecond carriage. In the line were many of
the most prominent gentlemen and ladles
There were many pictures of Mr. Steven
eon along the line of march and consider
able display of the national colors. The
Btreets were lined with spectators, bowing,
waving handkerchiefs and hats, saluting
the distinguished Bloomlngtonlan.
There wa3 a large assemblage at Franklfn
Park. A speaker's stand had been erected
under the maples, directly across the street
from Mr. Stevenson's home. This stand was
handsomely decorated with patriotic bunt
ing, end had seats for fifty people, which
were filled with old friends of the Stevenson
Mayor Thomas Introduced Judge Weldon,
irho welcomed Mr. Stevenson home and con
gratulated him In the name of the citizens
of Bloomlngton, upon the high honor paid
him by the Democratic party. Mr, Wel
Son's address was received with many out
bursts of approval by the larse audience,
find he was congratulated upon his well
chosen and appropriate remarks.
When Mr. StcvenEon arose to reply he
was warmly cheered. He was evidently
deeply affected Us ho began to speak. Ho
"I am. Indeed, grateful to the presiding
officer, to the gentleman to whose eloquent
ords wo have listened, and to you, my
fellow-townsmen and friends, for the recep
tion so generously tendered mo to-day. More
than once I hae had occasion to express
tny sincere thanks for acts of courtesy and
kindness shown me by those amony whom
my lot has been cast.
"The greeting extended to me to-day, Uke
that of eight years ago. Is personal. It 1b
In no sense political. No doubt, there will
bo enough and to spare of political discus
sions all along the line hereafter. But this
hour Is sacred from partisan discussion or
feeling. Let us never forget that political
contests, and even political parties, are
things of the hour.
v All Are Americans.
"Our country Is for all time. Wo have
honest difference a upon passing questions,
but upon that which takes hold of the life
of the Republic, thank God, there is none.
We are heirs In common to the blessed
heritage of our fathers. Dearer than mere
party names is that by which we all love
to ba known Americans! More sacred than
mere party embltm Is the one flag known
and honored by all. For whether floating
from the dome of the Capitol at home, or
from the masthead of our ships upon for
eign seas. In all lands, and to all peoples, It
Is the symbol of our common country. In
this enduring Republic is bound up all that
we hold dear In this mortal life all that In
the outstretched years we hope for for our
Tribute to Ills Homo Toivn.
.Mr. Stevenson then paid a splendid tribute
to Bloomlngton, the city of his home for
almost half a century. Referring to tho
early days of the little town when it had
neither banks, nor schools, nor railroads,
when the pioneers endured all manner of
hardships and with tireless eyes kept watch
upon their homes and loved ones to protect
them from the Eavages of the West, he
Btated that to him It Is the same Bloomlng
ton still, although most of tho old homes
and tho old pioneers are gone. He refcrn.-d
In a peculiarly happy manner to the as
sociations of ths town which are destined
forever to be a part of his life and to claim
a great part of his affections and closed his
remarks with a prediction that within the
next fifty years the city will realize tho
growth nnd prosperity which the character
of Its citizen, merit for it. Continuing, Mr.
"Sir Christopher Wrenn, the great archi
tect of St. Paul'.) Cathedral, when asked as
to his own monument said, 'Look about
you.' Is tho Inquiry as to the tireless energy,
the unfaltering courage of tho men in
whose hands In large incisure Is the future
of this city? Ths answer. 'Look about you
And on every side are the evidences of new
life: of the will that no calamity can break
of the faith in the future that no misfortune
can destroy. Knowing well our people, we
take courage as we turn our faces to tho
future. A people with hlghor alms, with
loftier Ideas of life, can nowhero be found
on God's blesses footstool.

TUB NEGRO IX LOCAL POLITICS.
G. AV. Urynnt of IVnshlniston Here to
Orgrnnlzc the Itncc.
G. W. Bryant, a prominent negro speaKcr
and politician of Washington, arrived yes
terday on invitation of negroes of St. Loutf
to take steps toward organizing them for
their political benefit. He was met at
Union Station by a committee.
Bryant was In St. Louis in 1SSX, having
been sent hero by tho Republican National
Committee, and made many speeches. Ho
was credited with being largely responsible
for the Republicans carrying tho old Ninth,
Tenth and Eleventh Congressional districts.
But this tlmo Bryant, It is said, does not
come as a Republican, but as a negro. A
prominent negro politician said last night:
"The negroes and especially In St. Louis,
are not as solidly Republican as they onco
were. They haven't been getting any bene
fits from their loyaltv to that party, and
they are tired of It. They will voto heavily
against Horton this fall. Because ho "stands
in" too much with the Ziegenlieln crowd.
The negroes havo no reason Tor loving
Zlegenhein: he has never done anything for
them. And they aro not going to support
him. by supporting Horton."

CONDITIONS IN NEBRASKA.
Republican Lethargy Marks the

Voters Will Follow the
Lead of Carl Schurz.
Lincoln, Neb., Aug. 4. Revised and cor
rected copies of Mr. Bryan's notification
speech, for the accommodation of tho pres3,
wero sent out this evening. The original
copy was sent to tho Democratic National
Press Bureau at Chicago last evening, but
it was found to contain somo errors, and a
revision was nocessary.
The speech contains about 8,000 words,
which will require about nn hour and a
half in delivery. Mr. Bryan stated somo
time since that It would treat almost ex
clusively of what ho and the National Con
vention bellovo to bo tho paramount issue
Imperialism but ho will not discuss its con
tents with tho reporters.
To a friend who talked with him about
tho speech yesterday ho said that in it ho
had endeavored to answer every question
that might bo asked about Imperialism,
and why ho stood so strongly against it,
and also to answer every argument that
the Republican speakers, editors or essay
ists had ever presented In its favor.
Departs on Monday Evenlnfj.
Whether ho will read the speech or not Is
a question he good-naturedly declines to an
swer, but tho Impression left is that ho will
not. He Is busied now with preparations
for his departure on Monday evening. Ho
will bo accompanied by his wife and son,
William, Jr., who Insisted on being permit
ted to go. Governor Thomas of Colorado,
who was tompoiary chairman of tho Kan
sas City convention, will be one of tho
party, on invitation of Mr. Bryan. Soveral
lady friends of Mrs. Bryan will also go.
Governor Poyntcr was Invited, but could
not find time to go.
Interest In tho Towne matter was re
vived to-day by tho report that Senator
Butler and seven Southern members of
tho Populist National Executive Commlt
teo Intend to mako a strong fight against
Towne's withdrawal, and that they will
insist upon a Populist being named in his
etead if he persists in dropping out. Tho
committee Is understood to be qulto evenly
divided on the matter, and somo trouble
may be cxpericnced'ln adjusting tho differ
ences. Hard Fight In Nebraska.
Nebraska will be the center of a hard
fought contest this year. Tho Fuslonists
are better equipped in organization .and
campaign managers than tho Republicans
and the efforts of the latter to carry the
State for McKtnley will be greatly neutral
ized by the opinion largely held among tho
friends of tho numerous senatorial candi
dates that the State Is practically certain
to go for Bryan and that the chief fight
should bo made on tho Legislature, where
favorable districting of tho State give3 tho
Republicans a chance.
Both sides have started to organize cam
paign clubs In every voting precinct in
the State for the purpose of getting out
the voto and keeping up a working organ
ization. Mr. Edmlsten, who will conduct
the State campaign, and also have charge
of the national headquarters here, has the
prestige of four successful campaigns and
he proposes establishing with each club a

One confusing factor at present is tho shift

Tlie Germans have not signified as yet
what they will do. Most of them aro fol
lowers of Carl Schurz, and they are await-,

vocacy of Bryan will settle tho Republic
an party ia this State.
In older to get somo kind of an idea
of the actual condition of affairs, tho Popu
lists have ordered a poll of the Stato by
townships. This will bo furnished In two
weeks. The Fuslonists aro positive that It
will show lO.O'jO for Bryan.

Washington. Aug. 4. Chairman Richard
son of the Democratlo Congressional Cota
mltteo will leavo Washington Monday for
Indianapolis to participate in the ceremonies
of notifying Mr. Bryan of his nomination
for the presidency.
Oliver C. Black of Massachusetts, presi
dent of tho National DemocraUo Club, was
a caller at headquarters to-day. Ho said
that this year the Republican party would
bo unablo to hold tho colored voters, as
tho administration had proved recreant to
"Thousands of colored men," said Mr.
Black, "will voto against MclCInley because
ho has failed to laiso his voice In condemna
tion of the lvnt-htno- nt colored men In tho
South. Tho colored voter believes, and ho
knows the President bus not dono all he
could have dono for him.
"Another point I desire to call attention
to: Thero are 7,000,OJO blacks In the United
States and "JiG.OuO mulattoes, and seven
tenths of all the places 'given by the ad
ministration to the colored people wero
bestowed on tho mulattoes, thus allowing a
most marked discrimination.
"Tho President thought he could rnako
votes for his party In tho South by giving
first-class commissions in tho volunteer
army during tho war with Spain to such
distinguished Southerners as Lee of Vir
ginia, Butler of South Carolina, Wheeler of
Alabama and others; but the President will
not get a vote because of thesa appoint
ments. "The shabbv treatment of tho colored sol
dier who fought so valorously at San Juan,
and tho refusal to recognlzo and reward tho
colored noncommissioned officers, will not
bo forgotten by tho colored votor In Novem
ber. ored voto is an important factor In decld-j
ing me election in tnose ssiaiea, una, juub
Ing from my correspondence, I am satis
fied that a majority of that vote will bo
cast against Mr. McKlnley."
Mr. Black says his club 13 busily engagod
In sending out documents and supplying In
formation to the colored voters, especially
In the doubtful States.
Letters received recently from Represen
tative Jett, who is campaigning in Illinois,
indicate that Demociatlo prospects are good
In that State. Mr. Jett says that the per
sonal popularity of Stevenson Is counting
In tho canvass, nnd he gives It as his opin
ion that the Stato will go Democratic.
The report comes from Illinois that plans
aro being laid to have tho former Gold
Democratic politicians, who directed the
Gold Democratic fight In Illinois In 1806, and
tho regular Democratic forces In 1S02, ac
tively at work In the regular organlzaUon
for Bryan and Stevenson.
There are two of these leaders especially
wanted by the regular organization. They
aro John P. Hopkins of Chicago and Ben
T. Cable of Rock Island. With tho assist
ance of Dennis J. Hogan of Geneva, now In
tho regular Democratic camp, and W. B.
Brlnton of Peru, thev had charge of tho
campaign that In 1S92 gave the Stato to
Cleveland and elected Altgeld Governor.
Four years later found most of them, save
Hogan. outside of the regular organization.
Hopkins and Cable were identified with the
Palmer and Buckner movement.
A visitor at headquarters from Indiana
said to-day that four ox-Democratic Con
gressmen from that State, who took the
stump for Palmer and Buckner four years
ago and voted for McKlnley and Hobart,
are enthuslastlcaly supporting Bryan and
Stevenson. Mr. Bynum, he said, will con
tinue a member of the Republican party.
Former McKlnley Snpporter for Drynn
Windsor, 111., Aug. 4. Charles Voria of
Windsor has left the party of Imperialism
and comes out squarely for Bryan, Steven
son, Alschuler and Jett. Mr. Voris has
been a member of the Illinois Legislature,
was Postmaster of Windsor under Harrison
and has been a speaker in every campaign
foi forty years.

Dallas, Tex., Aug. 4. The Dallas County
Republican Executive Committee adjourned

United States District Attorney W. H.
Atwell, who held a proxy at the recent
meeting of the Stato Executive Commltteo
ut San Antonio, condemned the action of
Stato Chairman Green in a speech before
the County Commltteo In unsurpasslng
terms. Ho advised Dallas Republicans to
