by negroes brought frpm the South.
Yesterday it was reported that Armour &

A representative of one of tho large pack

was asked by a reporter why packers had
decided to employ negroes Instead of
whites. He was asked if tha negroes were
considered to be more skillful workmen.
He replied as follows:
"No. they are not more skillful, but they
are more obedient. We are putting in ne

Tho announcement of tho defalcation
which was mada this afternoon created tho
utmost excitement in tha financial district
of tha city, but tho well-known stability of
tha First National and a statement luuid
by the bank had a quieting effect. ThH
statement was as follows:
"Tho nolo teller, who has been In tho cm
ploy of the First National Bank for many
years. Is a defaulter to u large amount. Ills
operations have continued for a considerable
period, anl have been skillfully concealed
through a manipulation of his balance book.
Tho discovery was made by ono of tha
bank's employes a few days after tho com
pletion of the examination of tha bank by
United States fxamlr.ors. During the con
tinuance cf his peculations periodical ex
aminations have been mado by several dis
tinct corp.i of examiners representing tho
Comptroller's Department, all expert ac
countants, and tha bank has also had fre
quent Independent examinations, neither of
which has developed any Irregularity. Tha
aggregate of the false entries, amounting
to JUrt.OW. has bien charged off on tha books
of tho bank out of tho reserve fund, with
out diminishing tho surplus nnj profits of
the bank as reported in It last publUhoJ
statement. It la Bald that tho hortago will
be materially reduced by a substantial sum
of which there Is a. fair prospect of recov

years, and was one of the most trusted men
In tho Institution. Ill stealings extended
ovef a lon.t period, but no suspicion of tha
truth was known until ten dajs ago. when
ho sent word that ha was HI at his home.
After ho had been away for a day or two
the bank put experts at work, and some
Irregularities wero found. As tho experts
delved deeper and deeper Into Alvord's books
tho extent of the rubbery began to dawn on
the olllccn, until they ware overwhelmed
to find that It reached tho enormous figure

took Is not yet known.

to have taid that Alvord was enabled to

cruiser Psyche, which ran In and then ran
out again without saluting, having como
to secure an absconding paymaster. Sir
Percy Sanderson, the British Consul Gen
eral, said to-day:
"The P3yche ran In merely on a matter
of business. I havo received official com
munication that the Psyche did not caluta
Governor's Island when she passed. It is
not trua that Major Myer of Governor's

a small number of guns need not fire an

TO SUPPRESS THE TRUSTS.
Describes Three Measures Which He Would Apply to the Sit

Has No Remedy.
New York. Oct. 23.-In reply to nn In
quiry from the New York Herald as to his
plan to suppress the trusts, William Jen
nings Bryan wired from Baltimore to
night: "Publicity Is good, but publicity alone Is
not sufficient. The practices of tha trusts
must not only be made known, but they
must bo prevented. Tho Republican party
has no remedy for trusts. We have.
"First Enforce the demand In tho Dem
ocratic platform for legislation which will
placo trust-made articles on tha free list.
"Tho corporations will then not bo In
spired to combine in this country to ralso
prices here while they sell abroad In com
petition with the world. Thero is no doubt
that such legislation would protect tho peo

When will you bo utronger to assert and
defend your manhood? When the trusts
havo tha monopoly of all Industries, and
when you have to go on your knees to
the ground and ask soma trust magnate for
your dally bread. It will be too late. I want
to say this in conclu.Ion: Do not stop when
you have voted the electoral ticket, but
o!a to send Democrats to Congress to
carry out the Democratic plans.
"When tho evening of election coms. I
shall listen for the returns from this State.
und I hopa that the returns will be such
that I can sing 'Maryland, My Maryland.' "
Inside tho hall the scene was an inspiring
one. Every Inch of space was packed with
sweltering, cheering. Jostling humanity. On
tha stage were nearly all the old-time lead
ers of the party In the State. Including ex
Governor Whyte and former Senator Gor
men, who have not thus affiliated for more
than a decade.
Governor Whyte Introduced Mr. Bryan,
who said. In part:
"Wondering what to take for a text to
night. It occurred to ma that It might bo
profitabls to call attention to tha tendency
of the Republican party to-day to amend
everything that we have been taught to
belike sacred In the past. I think I can
show you that tho Republican party of to
day Is attempting J;o amend tha Declaration
of Independence, the Constitution of the

Party Is correct, and If I were to take the
Ten Commandments, to begin with. I would
call your attention to tho charge that tha
Republican party has amended tha com

when Republicans were celebrating tho
birthday of tba Saga of Montlcello. then

On tha trust question they havo amended
the commandment to make It read "Thou

In every State there Is a law on the stat
ute books against horsa stealing, and If a
man steals a horse ha will be' put In tha
penitentiary. On our statute books there is
a law against the organization of the trust
or the monopoly to control the product or
the price of any article of any merchandise
nnd the penalty Is una or imprisonment
but If a man steals a horse they hunt hlia
with bloodhounds: If they organize a trust

Mr.- Bryan then took up the question of
prosperity, denying that the laboring man
was having his share of It. Ho asked why
thosa people who are lending money m
Luropa do not Invest It In this country and
answered It by asserting that tho trusts
mado It dangerous to do so. From this he
passed to a discussion of the standing army
applying the same arguments as heretofore
used by him.
Tha Republican party, he said, has amend
ed another commandment and says: "Thou
shalt not covet thy neighbor's land, unless
It Is valuable."
This, he asserted, had served as on ex
cuse for the seizure of the Philippines.
The remainder of Mr. Bryan's address
was devoted to a discussion of Imperl.iiUm.
and of the course of tho administration to
ward tha people of Porto Rico.
Upon the conclusion of his addresn Mr
Bryan drove to the steamer Cambridge"
upon which he will go to Claiborne and
thence on a flying tour along the eastern
coast of Maryland.
