1. II. Jackson. No. li19 Thornby place. Sen
ator Vest arrhej from Sweet Springs a
few days ago. He has passed his time rest
ing an,i driving about tho West End and
through Forest Park.
The Senator has not ventured downtown,
but he s.ild'last night that he expected to
vNlt the State Pemocratic headquarters at
tho I.icletle Hotel In .1 day or so.
Senator Vest has not been In good health
for some time. Since the adjournment of
Congress he has passed the greatir portion
of hi time at hl.- home in Sweet Sprlns-.
He --aid last night that he was f cling bet
ter tlum he had for some time, and declared
that wlitn the weather greiv colder he ex
pected to regain his former health.
"St. Louis is a wonderful city," he said
last night. "I notice a vast amount of lm-.
proicment since my List visit. Tli;r are
many beautiful residences here and 1 enjoy
looking at them. I went through Forest
Park the other afternoon. It is the tlnest
park in the world. I think.
"Politics? Mis-ouri wll! certainly give
its usual majority to the Demo
cratic ticket, both State and na
tional. 1 sc no reason why it should
ihange. and 1 do not bellee it will waer
trom Its former record. Mr. Docktry is a
stromr man. The entire ticket is strong.
We will sJrtly elect It by a handsome ma
jority. The electoral vote will go for Mr.
Rryan without question."
Continuing, the Senator said that he knew
little about the condition? us they exlut in
the other States except what he read In the
newspapers. He said, however, that he had
great hopes of Mr. Braii's election.
Senator Vest grew rt mlnlscent, and said
that while he is Tl years of age. the old
timers who rode the circuit with him out
of Georgetown In Pettis County In IsM are
nearly all dead. He spoke feelingly of his
former companions' and related Incidents nf
the hunting experiences he had In what are
now some of the most thickly settled coun
ths of the State.
Senator Vest will go to Washington In
time to be present at the opening of Con

frim Senator James K. Jones, chairman of
the Democratic National Committee, rela
tive to a circular tent out Intinntlng that
W. J. Bryan and otner Democrats were in
terested in "The Second Battle.' a book
published by a nonunion firm:
"My Dear Sir: 'the circular which you
Inclose to me was a tissue of lies trom be
ginning to end. If I could do so in the
compass of a letter. I could jolnt out at
least one lie in every sentence. In the tlrst
plaie. when M. Bryan bad his 'First
Battle' printed by the Conkey company,
they hid the largest union fchop in Chicago,
ano the label which ou will find on that
hook of the "Allied Printing 'trades Council'
Was rightfully and legitimately printed
thereon. Alter tins book was printed Mr.
Conkey moed his shop to Hammond and It
became a nonunion shop, as I understand it,
and 1 submit that neither you nor any other
fair-minded man could blame Mr. Bryan
"Ihc book called "The Second Battle." as
I understand It, IS a compilation of Mr.
Bryan s, public utterances, together witn
quotations from a part of his 'Urst Battle."
He has stated publicly that he waived all of
his rights under his copyright of his "First
Battle' and gave every one nis full permis
sion to use anything he set torth therein,
in order that nis utterances might obt tin
the widest publicity. 1 understand that
the Conkey company, or some one tor them,
hae compiled 'Second Battle" from the
sources mentioned, and that It was printed
without the authority, knowledge or con
sent of Mr. Bryan.
"I inclose herewith a circular Issued by
the 'Allied Printing Trades Council' of this
city. In wnlch ihe set torth that no blame
can be attached to Mr. Bryan in the prem
ises. "The truth is. the circular you Incloe to
me was a cowardly attempt by some un
known person to injure Mr. Bryan with
union labor. I am ery much ooliged to
jou for having written me on the subject,
and hope the reply covers the case entirely.
Vtry truly yours, JAMES K. JONtS."

The address say:
"We regard with profound apprehension
the course, of the present administration In
Porto Iltco and the Philippines. Our prior
acquisitions were of adjacent territory for
tho extension of tho arta of the constitu
tional Govemme-nt and the creation of new
States of the Union. We made their few
inhabitants citizens: our people settled
them: we the-re establ'shed the institutions
"For the first time In our hl'tory It is
now- proposed that the President and Con
gres shall rule vast territories and mil
lions of men outside our constitutional sys
tem. Ortlcl.ils, sworn to support the Con
rlitulion and deriving ail tlielr powers there
ftcm, have- ae-iultc(l colonies and assumed
arbitrary authority to govern their inhab
itants without consent and to tax Shcm
Imperial lain Plnlnlr IlrHnct!.
"This policy offers to the people of Porto
Rico and the Philippine? no hope of In
dependence, no prospect of American citi
zenship, no representation In the Congros
which taxes them. This Is the Govcrnme-nt
of men by arbitrary power; this is im
perialism. "We believe that it Is the first duty of
the American peoplo to stamp with their
disapproval doctrines so hostile to liberty
and dangerous to constitutional govern
ment. If they are to remain free and their
government is to continue representative,
their servants must not have or exercise
any but constitutional powers. Between
the claim that freemen are entitled to equal
lights and the dogma of tyranny that mignt
makes right, there Is no middle ground.
"We have not. prior to this ear, sup
ported the candidacy of Mr. Bryan. We
do not now concur in certain of his views
on minor issues. Yet his position on the

SPEAKER ROUTED BY
I'olisli Orator From Chicago Tried
to Make Republican Speech, lint
Couldn't Answer (Queries.
QUIT THE STAGE IN DESPAIR.
Then a Democratic Orator Made a
Democratic Speech, and the
Jlceting Ended With Cheers
for lirvan and Dockery.
"Kazely bedzle. mial prawn stawienla,

will have- the pleasure of asking questions."
This sentence, appended to a circular of
invitation Is what rlaved havoc with a
Polish Republican meeting held at Stolle's
Hall, at the corner of Thirteenth and Bid
die streets, yesterday afternoon, to the to
tal discomfiture of Krongold N. Zlatniekl,
editor of the Chicago Dzlenlek Polskl. who
was sent down to St. louls to prevent the
general slump of Polish votes Into the
Mr. Zlatnlcki's audience tock occasion to
remember the admonition on the small
bills distributed prior to the meeting con
cerning the questions, and when the Chi
cago editor arcse to speak to a houe full
of Polanders he was greeted by a frtorm
of questions that floored! him the first
round. Zlatnlckl was relished off in a few
mlnute-s. and he left the hall vowing that
if the Republican National Committee de
sired him to make other speeches' to his fellow-countrymen
they would have to send
along a copy of the Ready Political Inter
preter, or the Campaign Speakers' Guide
The room was crowded when he began.
It Marcel with hfm. Polanders from every
pnrt of the city were present in large
numbers, and there was not a Republican In
the audience. The meeting had been well
advertised, but tho Polish residents had al
ready made up their minds to vote the
Democratic ticket this year. They simply
went to see the fun and ask questions.
And ask questions they did. No sooner
had the Chicago editor got fairly under
way In his explanation of the dangers of
the paramount Issue of expansion than the
ercwd turned loose Its box of interrogation
points. They Hew thick and fast, and by
the time he had one answered there were
a half dozen still in front of him.
He struck a hard proposition from the
Pollrh standpoint concerning the standing
army. He stopped, and in a minute had
floundered too far into the surf to recover
Ills feet. The audience shouted in glee, and
laughed so loudly that Mr. Kronsold N.
Zlatnlckl cf Chicago retired from the plat
form. F. S. Knwalskl. one of the Democratic
leaders among the Polish residents, took
the stage. He made a good Democratic
speech, which lasted for quite a time. The
meeting broke up with three cheers for
Bryan and Dockery.
