journey for the east and the national
capltol. Chicago's peace fete has passed
Into history. The lights may glow pos
sibly a number of nights hereafter, but
the peace Jubilee is over. Notwith
standing frowning skies and drenching
rains, the great multitude which viewed
the pageant of Wednesday and those
who were privileged to participate In
the many features of the Jubilee will

when every other impulse was made
subordinate to patriotic ardor and
heartfelt expressions of loyalty to the
Big Crowd nt the Station.
President MtKinley and the members
of his party. left for Washington over
the Pernsylvania road. The crowd
which has followed him every time he
has appeared in public was with him to
the last, and it required the efforts of
ISO lMjiicemr-n to restrain the throng
which packed the slati. n to suffocation.
Just as the train pulled out the presi

the last car and bowed rerteatedly as
the crowd cheered him. The president

were more than the usual numlr of

On leaving the First regiment armory
where he met the railway men he went
to the Auditorium to meet a number of
friends, and while there was presented
with a memorial in favor of in
ternational arbitration, and after
listening to the reading of the
memorial said: "I am indeed very glad
to meet this representative delegation
and give you the assurance that the
subject of your memorial shall enlist
my early and earnest consideration.

T'nited States will be represented in the
proposed congress of p-ace." During
the remainder of the day he rested
quietly at the McWiHiams residence
until it was time for his train.
I'arade of Wheelmen Abandoned.
The greeting of railway men at the
First regiment armory, which was the
concluding event of the peace Jubilee,
served to show that theesteem in which
the president is held Is equally great
among all classes of men. Inclement
weather and impassab'.e roads interfered
with the plans for an illuminated de
monstration by wheelmen last evening.
The bicycle parade wan called off. and
nil interested cycling clubs were in
formed by telephone that the scheduled
event would not take place because of
the continued "Jubilee weather." Peace
Jubilee managers ilanned for a grand
down-town Illumination enhanced by
the bicycle parade last evening. The
continued bad weather and fall of rain
were severe disappointments.
SPEAKS TO OIC(iAMZEI) LABOR.
Thousands of Railway Men Oather at the
Armory to fie the President.
President McKlnlcy addressed thou
sands of organized railway employes at
the First regiment armory yesterday
afternoon. The wildly enthusiastic re
ception given the chief executive was a
fitting close to the series of ovations
which have been accorded him during
the days of Jubilee week. It was said to
be the first occasion upon which Presi
dent McKlnlcy has addressed organized
labor under similar circumstances. He
expressed his appreciation of the honors
extended to him and briefly commended
the spirit of enterprise and fraternal
feelirg which has made the organiza
tion of labor a power. McKinley scarce
ly had ceased when he was greeted
with deafening applause. Hats went
into the air. handkerchiefs and flags
fluttered upon all sides, and cheers fol
The president spoke about 200 words,
and among other things said: "Therali
road men have always been ready to
'fight for the flag of their country. I
know of no other occupation which car
ries with It greater risks and graver re
sponsibilities. You carry the lives of
jour countrymen and the precious
freight of humanity with you when you
are on duty. I congratulate you from
the bottom of my heart that in this

character and such high endeavor. I

from your countrymen unstinted praise
and approval for your fidelity to the
great interests you represent."
Speeches were made by Judge Payne,
George R. Peck, P. M. Arthur, of the
engineers: Clark, of the conductors
Sargent, of the firemen, and Morrissey,
of the trainmen. Mayor Harrison also
spoke. An informal reception for the
railway men was held by the president
after the addresses. McKinley was sta
tioned in an inclosure OS the first bal
cony above the entrance, where the rail
way men filed by singly. As they came
up to the president one by one they ex
tended their hands. The president
grasped each hand held out to him, and
only when it was evident that he had
become exhausted by the exercise was
a halt called. After, the delegates came

London, Oct. 21. The Paris corre
spondent of The Times says: I had a
visit today Thursday from a great
Spanish personage who seems to have
been commissioned to ascertain the
trend of public opinion on the negotla
tions here. He appeared much depressed
He has found great and general sym
pathy with Spain, but has been unable
to discover any possibility of obtaining
moral support against the American
delegates, who are inflexible In their
demands, and with much politeness of
fcrm have hitherto categorically re
fused to make the slightest concessions
on any of the instructions received by
them, never having asked their govern
ment for the slightest modifications,

What Prince Bismarck Once Said.
The intended sitting yesterday
Wednesday; could not be held because
the Spaniards, in view of the written
replies made to .them, renounced their
attempts at conversation and asked for
ty-eight hours' grace to consult their
government and prepare a written re
joinder. The friend who called told me
he had found his countrymen much dis
couraged, being convinced that the
United States are bent on a rigorous
exercise of the rights of the victor. "I
have heard you say," he remarked, "that
Prince Bismarck once said to you:
When you have your knee on the throat
of a vanquished nation you can take
from it all you likebtjt you must al
ways beware of abusing your victory
and exaggerating your conquests. Other
wise you load yourself for many gen
eration with a crushing burden, which
ends by having the most mischievous
results for the victoi almost more than
for the vanquished. ".
AMERICANS NOT LIKE BISMARCK.
Wblrh Cause the Spaniard Much Grief
and Anguitdi of Mind.
My caller remarked: "The Americana
are not adopting this wise and humane
view. They seem bent on pushing the
results of the war to their extreme con
sequences. They refuse to entertain
any 'concession on the financial ques
tion, and while declining to undertake
sovereignty in Cuba they maintain that
the Cuban debt is a Spanish debt, and
that Spain abused her sovereignty by
saddling the island with the interest of
a debt by which she alone profited.
Vainly have we argued that they them
selves accepted financial obligations to
ward England after the war of inde
pendence: that they accepted the bur
dens of Texas after the conquest; that
there Is no more general law than the
law of the obligations of a country
changing with its rulers, and that it
would be an arbitrary course and a
vexatious precedent to throw the Cuban
debt upon us. It is useless; and they
stand peremptorily on their demands.
"What our delegates should say to
them if they persist, as it is to be feared
they will, is this: We are in your
hands. You are tne victors. We for
once committed the folly of going to
war with you because you left us no
time to avoid it. because you treated us
in such a way that even at the risk of
suicide we were bound to plunge into
war. although the result of it was evi
dent to us. But we will not commit the
fresh folly of recommencing war in any
form. We are therefore at your mercy.
We shall submit to your dictates and
rhall have the world to judge of those
dictates; but no human force will com
pel us to subscribe to them and we shall
not subscribe This is what our dele
gates ought to say on this Cuban ques
tion. As for the other points, they will
wait to hear what they are."

Pith of an Argument Made by David

Omaha, Xeb., Oct.21. A bold argu
ment against imperialism was made by
President David Starr Jordan at last
evening's session of j lha Liberal Corf
grtss of KeJigior.s, ahd it was listened
to by a crowded church. Summed up it
ws to the effect thaf a policy of expan
sion would make incumbent upon this
country an expensive colonial system
with all that implies, a costly army and
navy; that our government would have
to be largely changed from American
republicanism to British imperialism;
that the pursuits of .war would take
the place of the pursuits of peace; that
it is not suited to this country; that the
effects of living in tie tropics is to de
generate the AngloSaxon character;
that a better way Is to preserve the
friendship between -this country and
Great Britain, and fipally that this na
tion stands for an ideal of individual
