(By Telegraph to Virginian-Fitot)
Washington, D, C, Oct. IS.?For the
first time in three days Minister Con?
ger wus heard from at the Slate De?
partment to-day. lie communicated by
cable the .substance of certain proposi?
tions advanced by Prince (.'hing and LI
Hung Chang as a basis for the conduct
of negotiations tor a settlement of ihe
Chinese trouble. The Chinese Govern?
ment had prepared the way for these
by a preliminary action looking toward
the punishment of Chinese officials
guilty of complicity in the Boxer up?
rising, and while the text of Mr. Con?
ger's communication la not made pub?
lic. It Is believed that the last Chinese
advance Is addressed lo some of the
propositions contained in thd French
note, being in the nature of counter
proposals and proceeding upon the
theory that vJhal has been done In the
matter of punishments is sufficient to
meet the demands of the Powers in
Mit. CONGEICS INSTRUCTIONS.
It was learned at the State Depart?
ment that Mr. Conger's prevlo'us lu?
st ructions lit him perfectly lo deal with
the new phase of the Chinese situation,
developed by the general acceptance of
the French note, us the basis tor pres?
Yesterday m. Thlobaut, the French
Charge here, called at tin; Slate He
pnrtnicnt and proposed to the Secre?
tary the immediate Institution at Pekin
of negotiations for a settlement, and it
appears thai the Secretary then agreed
to do his part. Ills promise was mtido
verbally and it may not be reduced to
writing ut all. but Mr. Conger Is al?
ready acting in conformity therewith.
Most of the Powers have accepted
the French note with reservations, but
it Is said that they all agree upon a
BUlllclcnt number of points of the first
magnitude to warrant the assembling
of the diplomatic body at Pekin lo
begin work of .formulating objects of
common desire and reconciling diver?
gent views, ii is probable that to ibis
body will be r< f.-i'i ed the latest Chinese
counter proposition received to-day by

IIIS SPEECH AT BOME.
Mr Bryati spoke from o balcony In
front of Stanwlx hall tn Jtome. Imme?
diately in front of him were suspended
large portrait i or the Democratic nomi?
nees on the Notional ticket, while only
a few slops nwny the portraits of Mo
ICInloy and Roosovclt uiso swung
across Hie Sil e t.
Ills audlen ? al this place won large
and attentive and the speech was pun
tuated with frequent bursts of ap?
plause. Expressing his pleasure at be?
ing in Home, Mr. Bryan said tho large
attendance could not be accounted for
upon the ground of curiosity, because
he had beeil in the city before, and the
people there had had nn opportunity
to eee and hear him.
He accused tho Republicans of
avoidam ? of the real Issues of (he
la'mpaign, ani asked: "Do they not

izens when they ask their votes and
yet decline to outline what they are
going to do? Read the plntfonn of our

that the D n icratlo position is stated
with a cle irness that admits of no am?
biguity, while the Republican party
states its position in glittering gener?
alities, an i spends more time brag?
ging about Ihe rain that the Lord has
sent than In telling of the Imperial
reign thai tho Republican party In?
tends to bring upon this country."
Referring to the trusts In thf Utlca
speech, he said!
"If the Democratic party is entrusted
with power it is pledged to put forth
every effort to destroy private monop?
oly In nation. State and city, and I
think that OVCn the Republicans now
give me credit for being honest In my
?termination to can y out the platform.
In fact, a SenatQr said the other day |
that that was ho groat objection to!

dangerous?an objection that cannot be
made to sonic Republicans who htive

my Attorney General will not come
from New Jersey, ami l have promised
that he will enforce the law."
A GREAT TRIUMPH.
The Oswego meeting proved one of
the greatest triumphs of Mr. Bryan's
entire tour, it was a reminder of his
best ohln meetings. The meet lag was
held in Washington Square and the
band stand, which was utilized as a
speaker's stand, was surrounded by a
vast mass of humanity, packed so
closely together that It looked as If It
would be Impossible to get Mr. Bryan
or other members of the party from the
train. There were probably live times
as many people pr> sent as could hear
vyhat was said. Mr. Bryan spoke for
only about half an hour, lie mounted
u table so all could see. Referring to
the size of the crowd. Mr. Bryan said
he had wasted a great deal of time In
visiting other places, "not knowing
that the whole State would be In Os?
As he had done In bis previous
speeches of the day. Mr. Bryan again
gave the principal place In his remarks
to the trust question, lie charged that
the Republicans hoped by jugglery, and
only by that means, to deceive the peo?
ple Into voting their ticket. In re?
sponse to a voice from the crowd con?
cerning the starch combination, Mr.
Bryan said that he knew nothing per?
sonally in regard to the Oswego works,
but that he had been told that the
w orks were employing fewer men how
thin formerly. I?,, related the circum?
stances connected with the legal prb
ceedlgs .against the Nebraska branch of
the Starch combination, and then
warned his hearers gently against
trusts of all kinds as calculated at any
time to close any Industrial enterprise
which might be controlled by them.
The return trip to Syracuse was made
In an hour, and this city was reached
by S o'clock.
IMMENSE CROWD AT SYRACUSE.
Syracuse. X. \\. Oct. IS.?-A cold dl'ls
sling, which set in early in the evening,
did not dampen in tho least tho ardor
and enthusiasm of the Immense crowd
which greeted Mr. Bryan when he ar?
rived here at 8:05 o'clock from Oswego;
The crowd was probably the largest
which has greeted n political speaker
here for many years. The c rowd jam?

square 1'ionting on tho Erie Canal

a island erected In front of the Wieling
Opera House. Inside the theatre thoro
was a mass meeting which was ad?
dressed by Mayor Jones, of Toledo, un?
til Mr. Bryan finished his open air
speech. lb- spoke for half an hour
from the stand ami then went Into the
tie ilre and spoke for an hour and a
half, in ihe latter speech he present?
ed in detail all the Issues beginning
w Ith the trusts.
lie said that he believed It was possi?
ble to prevent tiny privat.' indnqpoly
j from doing business in this country.
? His plnn he outlined :;r f.MIov.s:
"First, make the corporation lake
out a license; then squeeze the water
oil! of the sloe!;. I believe that tills
method will effectively prevent tiny
monopoly from existing. I believe that
yen have not to dcturoy the trust or
they'll destroy your liberty."
Then taking up Imperialism, he said
"The Republicans want t<> force upon
you a standing army of loo.nun. If this
government Is administered according
to Jefferson's plan of equal rights for
all and special privileges for none,
there will be no need of such a stand?
ing army. The ?n|y reason that can bo
gi\en why (lie Republicans want such
an army Is to enforce lyi.ir.no.il laws
against tho laboring men. Republicans
say that we arc trying to scare you
with the cry of Imperialism In the
Philippines, We have no title to tho
Philippines. All wo ever uot from
Spain in return for our $20.000.000 was
a license to hunt in the Philippines.
We knew when we acquired the Phil?
ippine Islands thai tho Filipinos ex?
pected independence. We say thai Ihe
Filipinos should be treated as the ite

Mr. Bryan repeated his declaration
that the Republicans had nmended the
Commandment so as to read! "Thou
shalt not steal -on a small scale," and
suggested another amendment to the
Ten Commandments as being in con?
sonance with the Republican policies,
making one of thcip read: "Thou shalt
not kill?unless there arc more of you
than of the other fellows."
.\t Dewltt liiere were n number of
railroad men In Mr. Bryan's audience.
He spoke to them of the "full dinner

a full dinner pail for the laboring man

said, "have done more for labor In

He also said that the newspaper or?

because of the Increased price of
