boat with me and It was Impossible to
keep the crowd from llndlug out we
were campaigning. The gold standard
has even stopped the run of salmon,
as almost none are being caught.
I put ill three days In Columbia
county that 1ms a front on the great
river of the weht for nearly Ufty miles,
one continuous succession of steamer
landings, sawmills, logging slides,
salmon fisheries and boundless fir for

ence of enthusiastic Bryan men and
women. It was at 2 p. in. and at a
busy bcason but about fifty fishermen
and lumbermen were present Mt. St.
Helens with its round top and snowy
mantle grew pale and rosy as we
were rowed in a fishing boat 12 miles
to Rainier to speak in the evening.
A hard working crowd were gathered
around the table at Wm Fluhrcr's at
Mayger where we all sat down to an
excellent dinner prepared by Mrs.
Fluhrer. Mr. Fluhrer was a veteran
in the Union army under General
SIgel, but he and his boys fight as a
unit for Bryan and free silver.
Tills town is named after Mr.
Charles Mayger who with Ills sons
incorporated the campany and con

ALL FOR BttYAN.
The enthusiasm among the river
population Is immense. Any man you
pass In a salmon boat or ball in a
boathouse on the shore with n "Hur
rah -for Bryan!" responds with "slx
tccn to one, you bet!" "Tills is a six
teen 10 one baby," yelled n Bryan en
thusiast, us he held aloft an innocent
white bundle of humanity, on board
or a sloop us we passed by. I listened
to the talk of fifty men for an hour In
a saloon on the dock at ono town, a
kind of waiting place for boats nnd

There was not a McKinley voice
in the multitude, though
etor and his barkeeper were for Mc
Klnley. This expression was heard fre
quently: "This Is no longer a free country if
the laboring men have got to vote as
their employers dictate."
On the boat I talked with a Scandi
navian saloon keeper from North
Portland. Ills place is among the
sawmills and every day and all tho
time politics Is talked by tin labor
ing men who frequent his place of
buslnesss. He says, while some, men
are wearing McKinley buttons to
hold their Jobs, the vast majority are
hearty Bryan men from principle,
feeling, conviction, and many are as
well informed on the money question
as the speakers on cither Bide.

A STUDENTS' RALLY.
Col. Drake Makes
I. P, CALUSON' ALSO SPEAKS.
A Large Attendance in Spite of the
"Notwithstanding the Inclemency of
the weather the Armory was comfort
ably filled last evening, with a select
audience, which had assembled to
hear Indisputable facts concerning the
white metal, as expounded by Col.
F. V. Drake, of Portland, under the
auspices of the Student's Bryan club.
Scores of old-line Republicans were
present, who ror the first time will
vote against tho G. O. P., and cast
their ballot for the people's candidate
for the presidency. The audience is
to be complimented, for braving last
night's storm, and turning out so
well to hear a discussion of the Issues
of the day that would apparently be
come tiresome. Their faithful at
tendance indicates a great interest
boing taken in the present campaign.
Again was it demonstrated last
evening, that brass bands, etc., etc.,
do not have to bo called into requisi
tion to insure a rcspectablo Bryan au
dience. Col. F. V. Druko was escorted from
notel Willamette to tho Armory by
the officers of the club. Seated upon
tho platform were Col. Drakc,and I. P.
Calllson, speakers for the ovcnlng; 0
K. Brandenburg, president of the club,
Hon. T. L. Davidson and J. M. Payne.
The program opened shortly after
8 o'clock with a lively campaign selec
tion by the Bryan Frco Silver choir,
who kindly responded to tho hearty
encore accorded them. Mrs. England,
who so kindly drilled tho choir,
was taken ill very suddenly in tho af
ternoon and was unable to bo present
last evening. '
Chairman Brandenburg Introduced
I. P. Calllson who was. to mako a short
address on the part of the students.
Mr. Calllson proved most conclusively
to his hearers, that tho present con
dition of business was duo to tho con
traction of the currency. Tho speaker
Introduced as proof for his statement,
statistics that indicated tho prlco of
five of tho leading commodities of
theso United States to have declined
50 per cent in prlco slno 1870 to that
of the ten years preceding 1870. Mr.
Calllson was vigorously applauded and
his services havo bcon asked by tho
county Bryan committee to assist In
the "school house campaign" which
Is being so effectively carried on
throughout tho state.
Miss Mario Campbell.ono of Salem's
talented young elocutionists, recited
"Billy McKinley" with splendid
effect and the recitation
recciyed the Just recognition
from tho audience that It merited.
C. W. Livesay Bang "Silver Knight
of the, West," very acceptably.and tho
many facts portrayed in the song was
quite a campaign argument In Itself.
Although Mr. Livesay was suffering
from a severe cold, he acquitted him
self very creditably and the apprecia
tion of the audionce was manifest
from the applause that followed.
In a few happy remarks Chairman
Brandenburg Introduced the speaker
of the evening, Col. F. V. Drake, of
Portland, who spoke for about two
hour, Unlike most addresses of
equal length, the audience did not
become restless but Instead requested
the speaker to continue indicating
their anxiety to hear mora indisput
able facts concerning the paramount
question at Usue. Col. Drake Is a
very pleasant speaker and possesses a
remarkable strong voice. Tho
speaker prefaced his address with a
few remarks in which ho paid a grand
tribute to the educational institu
tions of our country.
Tho subject of protection, which as
we are all aware, Is not an Issue of
the campaign, was not touched upon
other than to show that the present
tariff brings more revenue than the
one before. The subject of silver
was discussed at length and tho
speaker's arguments were more clearly
impressed upon the hearers by the
Introduction of numerous apt illus
trations. La all tho address ytas
by far the most substantial
logical and clearly presented that has
yet been made In tho city during the
In concluding his address Col. Drake
f paid a beautiful tribute to "Old Glory"
that aroused tho patriotism of his
hearers to such nil extent thai when
tho speaker had been seated, nn ap
plause burst forth that fairly shook
At tho conclusion of the meeting
three rousing cheers were given separ
ately for Bryan, Col. F. V. Drake and

coded success, and the immense nudt-

That champion-protectionist, who
very courteoudy wished to correct an
impression that lie feared had been
falsely misrepresented, was granted
tho privilege of making a statement
but the chairman of tho meeting and
tho audience as well, was unable to
see whereby Mr. Boutelle was botic-
lltcd in tho least by tho correction.

Thomas Gahan, chairman of tho
Democratic county committee, has
received tho following letter from
Bryan regarding tho matter:
"Auditorium notel, Chicago, Octo
ber 28. Dear Mr. Gahan: I wish you
would ask for the release of tho boys
arrested for throwing eggs. J am
sure it was an act of thoughtlessness,
and their arrest has donbtlcss been

Lato in tho afternoon, tho chief of
police was compelled to release the
two young prisoners, as, after Bryan
had written hislottcr,asklng for their
release, It was evident that there
