• NEW YORK. Oct. William .T. Bryan

phatic ovation. As the train steamed into
the annex of the Grand Central depot
that part of the immense building was
packed with a multitude. Col. Bryan wat
■ driven to the Hoffman hcuse in an open
'carriage in which he sat next to Richard
Croker, and with uncovered head bowed
and smiled to the thousands who cheered
him. : Forty-second street presented an an
imated scene. From Lexington avenue on
one side to Sixth avenue on the other the
,eldewalks were lined with the populace.
About 2 o'clock Capt. Price, of the
Grand Central station, began to take
active measures to open a passageway
lor the Tammany hall reception commit
tee to the depot. At 2:30 o'clock a great
cheer went. up and the open carriages
containing the Tammany hall reception
committee rode up. . William ,R. . Hearst
led the way, followed by Richard Croker,
O. H. P. Belmont, President of. the. Bor
ough James Coogan, James;. Shevlin,
Lewis Nixon, James Delmor and about
ft dozen others. Three cheers for Croker
were given. While the reception com-
Jnittee was waiting .every., possible inch
of space on stairs, at windows, platforms
and buildings near the depot was covered.
Mr. Croker and members of the reception
committee were pushed, shoved and hits
tled along and they had almost to break
Into a run before they could swing them
selves on to the rear platform and give
Col. Bryan greeting. Meanwhile the
crowd had worked itself up to what it
considered a proper degree of enthu- I
siasm. . -••..■ . '„,.

haturedly. through it all, in spite of the
fact that both he and Mr. Croker were
being . roughly jostled about. The part.,
drove through Forty-second street t>
;£i£th avenue. Col. Bryan reached thfc
>HoJfnmn house at 3:20 p. m. . All the way
down Fifth -avenue l»e was cheered by the
- crowds that lined tho thoroughfare.. The
demonstration as Col. Bryan left his car
riage and entered the Twenty-sixth street
entrance of the .hotel was a repetition of
thait Ji3ong ,the line. Col. Bryan at once
went to his rooms. A few. rr.imites later
. be received a delegation from St. Ma.
thews' . Lutheran church, North Fifth
street, Erooklyn. Rev. Augustus Somers
' "the pastor, presented him with a gold
headed cane, which had been won by Co!.
Bryan in receiving the largest number of
votes at a fair held by the church. He
made a : speech of thanks and then re
tired to rest before the banquet.
• The dinner tendered Mr. Biyan at th-.-.
Hoffman. house at 5:?0 o'clock this after
''titibn was not held in the Mooiish room,
as first intended, but in the Salon Louis
Quhize. Fifty covers were laid, an in
crease from v.hat was first intended. Al
, ugh Col. Bryan did not drink his win?,
■glasses were provided just as for the i
•/other guests. Mayor Van Wyck sat in an
Inlaid chair, brought from Arabia. On
either side. of him, two and two, were :
special chairs, on which sat Col. Bryan,
Mr. Croker, Ar.lai E. Stevenson and Will
lam R. Hearst.
- ■ When -all was seated Col. Bryan was
between Richard Croker and Mayor Van

-r AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN.
For hours before the time set for the
"opening of the doors, 5:30 o'clock, Madl- i
eon Square Garden, where Col. Bryan and
the head of the state Democratic ticket,
. 'John B. Stanchfield, spoke, was besieged
by crowds. At 7 o'clock to the minute :
the sound of exploding bombs outside of
the gardens announced the opening of
the doors. Instantly there was a great
rush by the people from the Madison
evenue hallway and the Twenty-sixth
street entrance. In less than ten minutes
'■ every seat on the floor was taken, and
the crowd which had begun to pour in
from all sides attacked the galleries.
Five minutes later saw the balcony and
a part of the galleries black with people.
.The rush was then over, but there came
- a steady; stream ,through the principal
doors and all empty seats were soon
filed. At 6:30 o'clock the only seats re
maining vacant in the entire garden was
<* an occasional box, the tickets for which
• remained good until 7 o'clock.
' . Col. Bryan entered the garden at 7:15
■ ©/clock. As the face of Mr. Croker, be
i Blind which appeared Col. Bryan's, wa»
seen, the crowd burst forth in one great
Everyone one stood tiptoe on his seat,
and the garden was a sea of waving
flags. As Col. Bryan, escorted by Mr.
Croker, mounted the speakers' stand, the
cheering was continuous. The two
climbed the stairs and made their way to
the front followed by the reception com
mittee. Col. Bryan and Mr. Croker fre
quently responded to the cheering by
bowing to the vast" audience, and the
j laces of both were wreathed with smiles.
j ENTHUSIASTIC GREETING.
Just behind the two, as they mounted
<the platform, Mayor Van Wyck escorted
Shepard, who acted as chair
wan. The enthusiasm, now dying down,
Xiow being renewed with increased vig
or, continued for five minutes, when
Mr. Bryan rose to his feet and raised
his hand. Mr. Croker pulled him
"back into his seat. Then the cheering
•went on. Then Mr. Croker rose, hesi
tated a moment, and then raised his
hand for silence. Instead of stopping
the crowd broke out louder than ever.
. Do what he could Mr. Croker could
not silence the crowd. After nearly fif
teen minutes the applause began to de
crease. Cries of three cheers for - the
pext president brought \ out the . final
cheer. The "enthusiasm- nearly carried
the crowd away. The crowd at the Mad
; ison avenue entrance of the garden !
Jammed down the aisles, and the sixty
odd policemen at that point had to do
-Severe battle with the' crowd to keep
it in order. When quiet was restored
Mr. Croker arose, took Mr. Shepard by
1 ' -•- ■ ' ...-..-.
the hand, and Introduced him to the
audience as chairman :of the, meeting.
Before Mr. Shephard could get Into the
subject of "imperialism," to which most
of his. address was devoted, the crowd
got so impatient to see Col. '■. Bryan that
Mr. Shephard could not proceed. He
suddenly stopped and introduced Presi
dent Guggenheimer, of the council, who
offered the formal resolutions "of the
evening. These Welcomed Col. ; ; Bryan
and Mr. Stevenson to New York, ap
proved the Kansas City platform, ' op
posed imperialism, protested against an
enormous standing army ."as" a menace
to the republic, praised the volunteer
army as being sufficient in emergency,
opposed entangling . foreign alliances,
sympathized with the Boers, denounced
trusts, pledged the party to bring back
to the people constitutional government,
and charged the Republicans with hav
ing raised a gigantic corruption fund to
debauch the country. ■ .
The resolutions were cheered, though
they could not be heard for shouts for
Bryan, and Mr. Shephard at once in
troduced the latter in a few short sen
tences. Col. Bryan stepped to the rail
ing about the stand as the crowd broke
out afresh Into cheers. He raised his
?»£ i/° r silence, but the cheers did- not
subside. Col..Bryan Was dressed simply
In a black suit, with a short sack coat.

He declared that ' the : prosneritv of

the Last, he said, they tell you how
prosperous the farmer of the West te
and in the West you hear of th!hig h '
wages and general employment of the
laboring man throughout the East -
In this connection Col. Bryan repeated
the report of his own prosperity as a
farmer, and went on to show that the"
re£?, r.. wal a 088 exaggeration •
If, said he, "I am a sample of what
is going on on the farm, I have some
idea of what is taking place there." •
Referring further to tfie Republican
claim of prosperity, Col. Bryan clamed
he was willing to admit that theamy
contractors and the trust magnates might
be prosperous. .. -Many a man whef £etl
special privileges at the hands of the
government can prosper under Republic
an administration, but I deny that the
wealth producers of the country are en
joying their Share of the government's
productions. . • : /■
At this point there were cries of "Han
na! ■ Hanna!" Col. Bryan merely re
sponded by asking his audience not to i
trifle with a great name.
Taking up the subject of trusts, Col
Bryan declared that they had grown un
der this administration more rapidly than
ever before, and he asserted that the Re
publicans refused to meet the issues they
created. He declared that the president
spends more time warning you not to
hurt your good trust than he doess.tell
ing you how to hurt the bad ones."
In the same connection he referred "to
the position of Gov. Roosvelt and Sen- !
ator Hanna on the subject of trusts, and
a reference in both cases was met with
groans. Mr. Bryan, said: "Mr. Hanna
says there are no trusts. Are you going
to send a man out to hunt the trusts
who knows where every trust treasure
is, but says there are no trusts?" In
response to this last interrogation a voice
from the audience responded: "We will
send you." Col. Bryan : again quoted
froni President McKinley's inaugural
address on the subject of - trusts, and
charged that the president 1 had neither
enforced' the existing anti-trust laws nor
recommended new ones. His attorney
general, he said, draws his salary and
permits the trusts to go.and. oppress the
people. '.■ ■„'■.-•
Col. Bryan referred to th"c Ice trust,
declaring that apparently this was the
only trust of which Republicans had any
knowledge. . . "
"If a Republican .tells you," he said,
"that the ice trust Is hurting the people,
you tell him that you. .have so much con
fidence in the , Republican governor that
you know he would not be out West
making ■ speeches if the people were suf
fering from the Ice trust."
This remark was ; received with cheers."

EXECUTION OF CHANG. f.
WASHINGTON, Oct. Confirmation
has been received here of the execution
on July 20 of Chang Yen Hoen, the form
er Chinese minister to the United States.
Chang was a loyal adherent to the em
peror and a warm supporter of. the lat
ter's reform movements. < When the. em-
press dowager supplanted the -emperor
two years ago he was ordered beheaded,
but though the interventtion of the Amer
ican and British ministers, his punish
ment was commutted to banishment in
the distant province, of. Kashgaria. It
now appears that the empress dowager,
taking advantage of the late reign of ter
ror at Pekin, and knowing Chang's, in
fluence with the emperor, ordered his
execution by decapitation. Chang was
considered by those familiar with Chinese
affairs, as one of the ablest men in Chi
na. He had been decorated by the queen
of Great Britain and by the emperors
of Russia and Germany. He was pre
eminently the most liberal and enlight
ened of Chinese statesmen. and had his
life been spared till the occupation of
Pekin by the allies, he doubtless would
have been . recalled and have taken an'
active part in the pending i negotiations
and future government' of China. .. ;: .
Secretary of State Hay has received
a dispatch from Consul Me Wade, at, can
ton, saying that the imperial troops have
recaptured Hui Chow, and that the rebels
have dispersed to the eastward. ■"■..:'

CALLED YOUTSEY AS A WITNESS.
The defense asked that " Yputs'ey be
called as a witness. The sheriff called,
but Youtsey did not answer. The de
fense asked that he be . brought into
court. „ .
"He is already In court," said the
judge. "We want him on the witness ]
stand," said Col. Nelson. "Very well,
bring him in, -Mr. Sheriff .and put" him on
the stand,' said the judge."/ *. •
': -Deputies-'and guards brought him In on
,his bed, .which they placed in front of the
Jury. Col. Nelson asked. Youtsey some
questions, but got no sort of reply, the
defendant lying as one dead on his lied.
• "We can get no response from the wit
ness," said Nelson: "Very well, let him
stand aside," said the Judge, and the
bed was taken away. Col. Nelson made
another motion to discharge the Jury, be
cause the defendant was not really In
i court facing hi« accusers, but simply an
unconscious, body. The Judge said that
. the law provided that before he ■': could
discharge the - Jury the' defendant must
be adjudged a lunatic. ■

WATERTOWN, 8. D., Oct. 16.—With an
original programme of five stops In to
day's lntlnerary Senator Hanna' special
train stopped .at fourteen towns in Min
nesota and South Dakota during the day.
So much pressure was brought to bear by
committees from various points along the
line not included in the itinerary and by
Minnesota and South Dakota congress
men, through whose districts the" train
ran, . that Senator Hanna consented to
make brief talks■•; at as '- many stations
as he was possible to Include in/the/day's
; travel, and at nearly every town of yany'
importance through the valley the
Minnesota 'river, and across the prairies
of v Western Minnesota • and Eastern
S»ixik I>akota,-Senators Banffa and Frye
.and --Victor, Dolliver made jspeech'es/- vary
ing; ;. in length - from two to twenty min
;Uies.v^la/o*iie'*ofrtwo' instances in Minne- :.
sota, through that part of the .i state
noted for its v dairy industries and stock
raising, the speakers paid, some attention
to the tariff tiuestion, but the speaking
was mainly on, trusts and prosperity. ;
"That's all the i people seem to care
about,"' Said Senator Hanna tonight. "All
they s want, .apparently, is to be assured
of the continuance* of "' the', present condi
tions. The sentiment seems to be '. all one
way,- too. i can see nothing but an over
whelming vote for McKinley in this sec
tion of the country." ' J v
A stop of forty-five minutes was made
at: Mankato, where ; % the largest; crowd
■of the; day had gathered In the public
square. Senator Hanna said in part:
■ " , ! .„. HANNA'S ADDRESS..
••-■ "After a business experience of forty
years, .-!•- want to say mat just as sure
as the sun rises in the east, if a change
trom the present policy j and the present
| administration is made and Mr. Bryan
is put at the head of the government of
! the United States, not only a financial
panic will follow immediately,- but our
industries will be prostrated, and will not
recover in ten years. . How ridiculous it
is to tell about yielding to the ambitions
of any man simply because he has an
insane desire to be president, to talk of
tearing down all that we-have. built up
In these forty years; to talk of withdraw
ing the . United States from the place
where Mr. McKinley has put It, in the
very .firing line of nations. Why, if no
other interest would impel us, our patriot
ism would say, 'God forbid. 1 Our pride
in our country would say, 'God forbid.'
But there is something that comes closer
home than all that. It is the welfare and
comfort of our wives and children. That
has the iirst call that should influence
the head of every house. In 1896 there
were some people in this country who
believed Mr.. Bryan was at least honest
in his opinions^ • Every day adds to the
number of men who voted for him in
1896 and who say they do not believe he
was ever honest in his . Intentions; that
he has been playing the part of a hypo
crite, and that for this same insane de
sire for office he will sacrifice even his
own self-respect." , ,
