BRYAN SAYS REPUBLICAN CAMPAIGN
HAS STRENGTHENED DEMOCRACY.
Chicago, Xov. 2. William. J. Bryan, Democratic presidential candidate, to-mejit
irave out the following statement hi the form of an Interview:
"The Republican campaign has been a failure. The full-dinner-pail argu
ment has been repudiated by the worklngmcn. and the Republicans are coniplled
to confess that a large proportion of the labor vote will le cast for the Demo
cratic ticket. Besides believing with the Democrats In the general iloctrlno of
equal rights to all and special privileges to none, the laboring men are against
tho trusts, the large army and the colonial pollc. The- laboring men aie aNo
drawn to tho Demoeratlc party by the fact that our pirty Is opposed to govrn
ment by injunction, to tho blacklist and to f lilnese immigration, and in favor of
arbitration, and of a Cabinet olliecr selected to represent the wage earners.
"Tho Republicans are now hoping to hold their strength among the fanners,
but they have r.o policy which will benefit the. farmer. The man who makes his
living on the farm is the victim of all the vicious legislation for which the
Republican parly is responsible, and receives nunc of the benellts conferred by
special legislation upon corporation, and sndicate-e The farmer pays more than
his share of the taxes and receives less than his share of the consideration of
"Republican policies have lessened the value of farm lands, increased the
proportion of tenants and have driven the farmers' sons away fiom the farm,
thus intcnslfjing the struggle for existence In the cities. Iho farmers are al
most unanimously opposed to the trusts and they can have no simpithy with
tho nnpeiiallstic policy of the Republican part, with its attendant increase in
the military establishment.
"I believe that the election will short- that we have gained among the farmers
as well as In the cities.
"The small buslne-ss men and the inofcssion.il men are also feeling the effect
of the industrial despotism whieh has giouii up with this administration.
"The poor are coining to the Democratic piny because they want a chance
in tho race for life, and many of tho wtll-to-do .11 e coming because the re

the Republican iart.
"The Republican patty is under the control of those who set k advantage
through governmental favoritism and grow rich bj the exploitation o: citizens
at home and subjects abroad. It Is a light between Democracy on thy one sjaL
and plutocracy (on tho other, and Democracy appeals to the judgment and to the
conscience of those who are willing to let live, as well as to live."

OTHER MEN INVOLVED
IN RICE CONSPIRACY,
Believed That Jones and Patrick Are Not
Oniy Guilty Ones Valet's Pitia
Xew York. Xov. 2. What may prove to
be an important clew to the mystery sur
rounding the death of William Marsh Rice
was made public to-day by Assistant Dis
trict Attorney Osnorne, who announced
that he had learned that among the medi
cines in Rice's apartments was bichloride
of mercurv which had been prescribed by
a pnjsiclan for cx.ernal application.
Mr. Osborne linked this discovery with tho
finding by Professor Wltthnus of mercurial
poison in the old millionaire's intestines,
nnd Intimated that there would have been
no difficulty for tho conspirators to give
the poison to She old man to drink.
Jones in Ason.v of Despair.
Ch tries r. Jones tossed In a torment of
agon a:.d despair on his cot in the prison

who dressed the wound In his neck In the

Jones's laie is not alone In the bilnnee.
The confession that he made on Tuesday
night to Assistant District Attorney James

Allit rt T. Patrick.
His death or Inability to appear 011 the
witne's stand would make lir statement
woitliless execjit as a guide, as they could
not be used In court against Patrick.
As Jones has received no guarantee of
protection for himself, he could bo placed
on trial, and every word he uttered could
be turned against him, Insuring his con
viction for some degree ot rrlme. If he did
not plead guilty. In tho hope of leniency.

Patrick, who maintains his courage in the
Tombs, ridicules Jones's confession and as
sumes the position that he is being huunded
bv othtr persons Interested in tho fight for
William Marsh Rice's millions.
The-application to comiel him to place on
filo in the Surrogate's olllcu the will ho as
serts he has In his possession, was on the
calendar for argument to-day, but was ad
journed by Surrogate Thomas until Xovem
Patilck his made public a copy of this
will, in which ho is the chief beneficiary,
but he has thus far carefully guarded the
oilglnal. Other heits declare that the paper
Is a forgeo.
Tho only complaint now pending ugainst
Tatiick Is furgei, hut an effort will bo
made 10 have the November Grand Jury

Although the police believe that Jones's
confession was oubstanllally true, they say
he undoubtedly minimized his own part,
and be was a more active ai,ent than ho
cared to admit when he tried to shiit tl.o
burden of icsponsiblllty to Patrick. Rvity
effort is being made lo substantiate his
allegations and every clew ho gave is under
The most impoitant Information that

Jones had the poison and h. Certainly
knew what it was.
"We can now explain the presence of
mercury in the intestines and stomach of
Mr. Rice," said Osborne. "About six
months ago Doctor W. T. Bull performed
an operation upon Mr. Rice, who was, I
think, suffering from a tumor on the face,
w hich Doctor Bull removed. After the oper
ation, Doctor Bull prescribed that the
wound be washed with a solution of bi
chloride of mercury
"Now death in Mr. Rice's case was duo
to mercurial poisoning; I jvant to say that
Professor Witthaus, at the t.me he went to
work on this case, did not know that Mr.
Rico had been operated unon, nor that tho
doctor who had attended him had pre
scribed bichloride of mercury a a wash.
"Thus ou no wo hau this poison rlsht
in old man Rice's house. There was no
necessity ivir to go outbide and gft it."
A third man is now implicated in the con
spiracy. "Two men are involved In this
discovery." said Mr. O-bornc. "Rithe-r David
Shore, who Is a Commissioner of Deeds for
the State of Texas, or Morris Meiers, who
occupied th sk loom In Patrick's olhce. Is
the man Both witnessed the win which
Patrick has In his possession. This will, I
am convinced, Is a former."
Mr. Short, when "een, S'lld:
"The statement of the Assistant Distilct
Attorney that the signature of Rice, to be
witnessed by mself and by Morris .Meyers,
is a foigtry Is a lie. There is no other way
to characterize It.
"Ou June M last Mr. Patrick asked me
to go to Mr Iflce's house to witness cer

wished to sign concerned the two transac

iu:rri!i.ic bi'nc iai-
Xi'W York. Xov. -' -There was an ante
election Hurry In the money market to-daj-,
cau'eel by the action of the Wormstrs In
calling in a large line of loans. The rate
for money Jumped at one time to L" per
cent, but receded gradually, and most of
tl-o loans made were on the basU of C to
U rer cent.
The fact that the wornv-ers cancel in
their loans gave some ot their associates
eiulte a fri-iht. inasmuch as tho head of
the banking-house has wagered several
hundred thousand dollars on the election
of McKlnley and Roosevelt. A member
of the firm stated that the calling in of
the loans had no bearing on the election, but
v'a a busine-H transaction, pure and slm-
PR"iisell Sage expressed surprise at the
movement in the money market. The
natural demand, he thought, caused the ad
vance to-day. Incmlry among the banks
elicited the fact that no steps have been
taken to meet a possible strlngencj-. Bank
ers gererally do not anticipate any dis
turbance of the money market, a3 a result
of the election, although all agree that
loaning rates may be marked up over Tues
day, and that exceptionally good collateral
will te demanded.
In the case of the Wormsers, it is under
stood that the firm, after calling in their
loan'j to-day, put the money out again
at a marked advance, but at the same
lime requiring marginal security nearly
three, times as Urge as that usually given.

Words cannot be combined that will give
an idea of the enthusiasm, almost the
Idolatry, with which the multitudes of peo
ple received Brian and Alsvhuler. The two
Democratic leaders appeared together sev

commanding figures, erect, masterful, man

never were accorded political leaders in
Mr. Alschuler spoke at five of Mr. Bryan's
meetings last nicht, anj to-night he ap-rcare-d
at half a do?en others'. The record
of to-night was the same as last nisht.
With to-night's meetings, the campaign of
oratory in Chicago practically closed. Tomorrow-
Mr. Alschuler will be whirled
through Kane County on a special train,
tho first he hab had during the campaign
lor such a puipose.
At the Second Regiment Armor- to-night
Mr. Alschuler turned ov er the militia record
of the present State administration fur in
spection of the voters. It was received with
tremendous cheers from hundreds of mem
bers of the National Guard ivho weie pres
ent I want to fell the people of Southern Il
linois something about the audiences that
met the Republican and Democratic can
didates In this city. The Republicans were
unable to Induce the people to attend their
meetings early in the campaign and they
were compelled to resort to a trick. They
form their political marching clubs eaily
In the evening and with vans and drum
corps paraded tho place of meeting and
with these marchers and bands fill
the halls and - tents. But Con
gressman Lorlmer, Mr. Yates and other
Republicans found that even this subterfuge
did not attract enough people, and so they
engaged vaudeville artists, advertised freo
dancis, hired stereopticona with moving
pictures of prize tights, rented tents, and. by
these means they have managed with the
assistance- of the marchers to comfortably
tlll their meeting places.
Absolutely none of this fol-ele-rol has been
used by the Democrats. I hive attended
probably fifty Democratic meetings in Chi
cagoall tho dates fixed for Mr. .Alschuler.
and not one band of music accompaniment
has been present, b -fore or after the meet
ings, and no extra lnducementa were offered
to secure a crowd be-ond the mere state
ment of the names of those who would ad
dress tho meetings.
These facts and the ridiculous fiszle of the
"monster" Republican parade of last Satur
day induce the greatest hopes in the Demo
cratic breast, ami are responsible to a great
e'Xtent for tho belief that Cook County will
give the Democratic ticket a tremendous

Mr. Alschuler handled the malitia matter In
a way that will please every member of the
Xalional Guurd in the State, and especial
ly in Southern Illinois, for his references
were applicable to the crack Hgiptian regi
ment: "Vou have heard your ncct President give
cogent reasons why there should be- a
change In the administration at Washing
ton " said Mr. Alschuler, "and in the few
moments allotted to me. I will endeavor to
give- you some reasons why there should be
a change In government at Springfield."

and Cottage Grove avenue one to tho
crowd In the building and the other to tho
throng that was unable to gain admittance.
Here was the only semblance of disturb

"How about Xorth Caroline?" und Mr.
Bryan was rcpl!na', when one of the ques
tlorcra insisted on asking a question con
cerning tru..;s, whereupon the crowd dt
n.aneled that he be thrown out and threat
ened to lynch him. Mr. Brjan insisted upon
answering, however, but could nut do so for
some time, owing to the uproar made bj
tlio crowd In expressing its resentment to
ward tho inquisitor. Ihe latter was saved
from viole-nce onlj by police interference.
Mr. Brj-an's night meetings were held 6n
the north, west, southwest and south sldea
of tho citj", the closing speech being mado
at midnight at Stato and Thirty-first streets.

were actually forbidding in their aspect. In
the different rooms groups of leaders wero
gathered, discussing subjects which I could
only conjecture, but there wasn't a smile

Doctor Jamison told me there was ne

electoral voto to McICinlej-. I didn't tounC
on a different answer.
"How about Yates?" I queried.
"In Cook Count j- McKlnley will run 15,

This means that Mr. Yates will run 25.009
