Colonel Martin said to a Republic re

a considerable period, and that he did not
anticipate that his labors would end until

On the way to Lincoln the Colonel got
into a dispute with a German friend over
whether it is true that the Germans are
leaving McKlnley or noL A poll of the
Germans on the train waa agreed upon to
decide the point. Fourteen were found, and
of these twelve are for Bryan and two non

what has already been printed piecemeal.
He does not know how long he will remain
in either Indianapolis or Chicago. A story

that it would be run along the lines he de
