DEYERY DECIDES TO
RESCIND HIS ORDER
LINCOLN. Neb.. Nov. 5.— With j
the exception of seven speeches ;
to be made at Omaha to 1 night. j
William J. Bryan completed h>s j
Presidential campaign tour of i
this State with * speech In this, his home j
city, at G o'clock this evening. He re- ;
turned here at that time from a twelve- j
hour tour of the Interior of the State, ar.d j
proceeding immediately to the People's j
square delivered a speech of about thirty
minutes 1 duration to his townspeople.
Mr. Bryan seemed entirely satisfied
with the audiences that greeted him at
various points of his own State. Many of
the place.? at which he spoke are Repub
lican in sentiment, but in all cases the
crowds were :arge in proportion to the |
population, and in most of them there was |
a high degree of friendly interest man:- j
Outside of Lincoln and Omaha. Hastings |
supplied the largest audience cf the day. |
At that place Mr. Bryan spoke for a half- j
hour, and in connection with his discus- j
sion of the Boer question Mr. Bryan re
ferred to the election of John Burns to
Parliament. On that point Mr. Bryan
"They have recently had an election In ¦
England, and John Burns, who represents j
a labor district, was re-elected there, ami |
he made his fight against the imperialism j
that was manifesting itself in South Af- j
rlca. and I want to read you an extract
from his speech, for when our man Kent !
from* this State, one of the two delegates \
from the Unltei States to the Labor Con- I
gtess in England, went over there he |
found that the tirst thing the laboring t
men of England did was to pass a resolu- j
tion condemning the Boer war. They say
we ought not to say anything against the !
Filipino war. They would deny to us the
right of free speech that they even
have in England, and say that in free
America we shall not raise our voice
against Injustice and the violation of the
constitution. And yet the laboring men
of England passed their resolution de
nouncing the Boer war. and John Burns
was re-elected over there after making a
speech, an extract from which I will
read. Speaking- of the programme of what
he declared the new imperialist, he said:
" 'In a word, the new Imperialist prac
tices and gets the people's army and jiavy
to enforce his sordid ideals. A nation
which countenances that is doomed; a
people that connives at it is already half
way on the road to slavery. A working
class that does not resist It is destined to
be taught the sharpest lesson they ever
"That is what John Burns of England
said to the British people In his contest
for re-election; when he made the issue
on the Boer war. And yet In this country
you will find Republicans who want to do
exactly In the Orient what England is do-
Ing in South Africa. To-day the United
States ia not able to sympathize with the
others, for if the Republican party were
to announce to th« Government a resolu
tion of sympathy Srtth the Boers. Eng
land through Parliament, would ask what
was the matter with the Filipinos. The
Republican party to-day Is doing just
what the Tories and the Conservatives of
England are doing over there. "We are
waging a war of conquest, a war for the
purchase of trade: and if you will read
what was said by Senator Hawley In the
United States Senate you will flnd that
they want an army In this country to co
erce laboring men. and you will flnd that
Mr. Hull, the chairman of the House
Military Committee. In a letter in which
he advised and recommended accepting a
site for a fort near Des Molnes. said:

ment to concentrate the troops near the
large centers of population, where many
railway lines converge and allow of them
being rapidly transported to points of
"That has been the policy in recent
years, and yet when I said the other day
that one purpose of the large army was
to coerce laboring men and have the army
near large centers to suppress strikes Mr.
Roosevelt said that I was stirring up class
prejudice; and yet I was using the very I
language that was used by the chairman
of the Military Committee of the House,
a Republican from Des Moines. Iowa, and
I was only telling in the same language
what Mr. Hawley. as Senator, stated in
the United States Senate a year ago."'
Mr. Bryan made brief speeches at the
towns of Aurora. York and Seward. ad
dressing large and enthusiastic audience*
at each of these places. His remarks at
c.ich place were a summary of his pr»
\iuus speeches, and he touched upon a!',
tne principal questions of the campaign.
He took occasion at each place to oh*erv»
the importance of electing the whole
Democratic ticket and of sendin" a fu
p-onist to the Senate in place of Senator
Mr. Bryan was met at the Burlington
station by a large throng of people upon
his arrival here at »> o'clock to-nijrh? from
the Interior of th» State. He ppnke fn»m
a temporary stand in PosrnfTice s>iuar»*
and in the main devoted himself to thf
general Issues of the campaign. The
speech was generously applaudfd and was
evidently well received. The meeting was
a purely informal one. and there was n >
chairman present to preside over it. In
Intrortucing his «pee< h Mr. Bryan referral
to this fact, and also referred' to th*r fact
that this was a homecoming for himself.
He said during his address:
"Whether I am elected or not. I think
my experience will he »>f some service N>
my country, fnr I havf shown that a.
yourg man. without a stngle corporation
behind him. can amount tr» something.

fay it in a boasting way. for whatever
has come to me has not come beca'i^e or

appealed to the conscience and to thr
judgment of the American people. Our
platform Is so plain that every one who
can read can understand It. and It has
been discussed ao often that even if a
person cannot read he has some idea in
regard to It. You know where the party
stands. It has not dodged any Issues. I',
.•tands on the old questions as It stood
and it has added to Its platform planks to
cover new Issue*."
The body of the speech -wasi devoted to
a discussion of the trusts and the ques
tion of Imperialism, the bond question antl
the subject of pensions. On all of these
subjects the speech followed familiar
lines. In conclusion Mr. Bryan said:
"Now. my friends, let me thank you
ngain. I thank the soldiers, the Home
Ouard*. the Continentals, the traveling
men. you citizens all. My work Is done,
or almost done, for this campaign. I
have tried as well as I could to defend

"The Republican party seems to be in
very good condition all over the State and
during my experience I have never seen

NEW YORK, Nov. 5.-There has been
no change in the political situation in
New Jersey to-night. The Republicans
are confident of success, but the Demo
crats claim that if the members of their
party who remained away from the polls
four years ago turn out t6-morrow the
State will go for Bryan. The Increase Jn

to the normal growth of the voting peo
ple. The Democrats, however, claim that
the Increase shows that those Democrats
who remained away from the polls four
years ago expect to vote to-morrow. The
great fight In the State will be for the
legislative officers. The eight Senators to'
be elected will have a vote next year for
a successor to Senator "William J. Sewell.
whose term expin»«_at that time. Under
ordinary circumstances the Democrats
would hope to elect seven of the eight
Senators, because the counties from which
they are, to be elected are Democratic,
but it being a Presidential year the Re
publicans claim the big vote that will' be
polled for MeKinley will enable them to
pull through five of the Senators, which
would give them such a majority In the
Senate that only a landslide next year
would prevent them having a majority
on Joint ballot.
ST. LOUIS. Nov. 5.— The Democrats ex
press the utmost confidence in their abil
ity to elect Congressman Alexander M
Dockery Governor by a plurality of 30 000
and more and of giving; Bryan a majority
of from 40,000 to 60.000. The Republicans
are equally boastful. Many are of the
opinion that the counting of the ballot*
on Tuesday night will find MeKinley with
a slight majority over Bryan and Ratlroad
Commissioner Joseph Flory entitled to
take his seat in the Governor's chair. Oth
ers not as sanguine of success as their
fellows console themselves with the
thought that the Democratic national
ticket will show a greatly reduced plural
ity. It Is generally conceded by the mem
bers of both parties that to-morrow's vote
will show surprising changes.
There Is no change in the Congressional
situation. The Democrats say that they
will elect thirteen out of the fifteen Con
gressmen to be voted for, and the Republi
cans expect to elect five out of the fifteen
a gain of two.
