BRIDGEPORT. Conn.. Oct. 12. Lyman J.
Gase, secretary of the treasury, addressed
a large Republican meeting In this city to
.oifht. It had been announced that he
would make the meeting the occasion of a
reply to the latest criticism of President
McKinley' administration by Carl Schurz,
but he confined himself almost wholly to a
discussion of the currency bill passed last
March and made no reference to Mr.
Mr. Gage declared that in the letter of
their platform the parties are not at issue
on the questions concerning the Philippines,
Cuba and trusts. The greatest trust in the
United States, he said, was the pooling of
Interests by the Populist, Democratic and
Silver parties, with Bryan as the trustee.
Touching on the former gold-standard
Democrats who have gone back to the
party on the plea that, even if elected. Bry
an could not change the currency condi
tions, Mr. Gage said: To elect Bryan
would almost necessarily Involve the elec
tion ct a majority of hi3 sympathizers in
the House. Later there might by some
means be a majority in th Senate with
him. He is pledged to repeal the Dingley
tariff act and to open tue mints to silver.
It is my honest opinion that Bryan, with
his perverse ingenuity, could in a few
months debase the money of the country
and destroy its credit even w?th a majority
in the Senato against him. I know
of men who say they will vote for him
and. who say that they could not re
store the free coinage of silver un
less elected with a sympathetic Senate
for a second term. They have confidence
iii the currency act of March 11. VMO. to
prevent it. That law In the hands of a
right-mlndod public official is a good and
adequate one. but It Is hard to hold ly
law a man who Is disposed to break the
law. I read the other day of a man who
In his cell had nothing but a broomstick
and two blankets. With the broom ho
mads a key and unlocked the door, and of
the blankets he made a rope which per
mitted his escape over the wall. Since
reading that I am more ftrmly convinced
that it is better to have the affair of the
government administered by a man who
loves the law than by one who would
trample It under his feet.
Concerning the currency act, Mr. Gage
denied the Democratic assertion that it
whs Intended to ierpetuate the public debt.
Vhen the act took effect," he .aid, "there
was a debt of Jj.W.Oji. due within tight
year. Since then J.'-y.Wx.(iJ of it has al
ready been refunded, and If the lit pub
lican party Is sivtn a second term ilROnu.-
000 will bo refunded. When this Is reached
tfae operation of the act may b. sus
pended." The secretary everted that the constitu
tional questions applying t.j Porto Kloo.

oon be nettled by the Supreme Court, and
that until Its dictum Is announced the par
ty under which they have arisen should
be entitled to its own Interpretation of the

THE HAGUE TRIBUNAL 3! AY CONSID
ER THE CHINESE QUESTION.
Russia's Proposition Regarded In Ger
many aa Important List of Cnl
pables Not Satisfactory.
BERLIN, Oct. 12. The proposal of the
Russian government that, in case of pro
tracted divergence of views regarding
equitable Indemnities, this matter might be
commended to the consideration of the in
ternational court of arbitration at The
Hague, is regarded as the most important
recent development in the Chinese situa
tion. Nothing was known publicly in Eu
rope concerning it prior to the publication
of President McKlnley's answer to the
note" of M. Delcassc.
Most of the papers comment unsyrapa
thetlcally upon the suggestion. The Lokal
Anzeiger says that It raises another diffi
cult problem which will occasion long ne
gotiations, and the Berliner Tageblatt un
derstands that official circles regard It as
tentative rather than as a formal propo
Germany looks upon the report of the
death of the Empress dowager as a new
Chinese intrigue. It is supposed that she
intends to disappear temporarily in order
to escape responsibility for the misdeeds
of high officials and, perhaps, to prepare
another anti-foreign movement. A high of
ficial of the Foreign Office asserted, to-day,
that a telegram had been sent to the Chi
nese government demanding direct infor
mation as to whether the Empress dow
ager is dead. No reply has been received
and the roreign Office draws the conclu
sion that the Chinese government is kept
informed as to the plans of Tsze Hsl An.
The German Foreign Office is not satis
fied with the list of culpables supplied by
the Chinese government. "The list is no
toriously incomplete," paid an influential
official to-day, "as it omits at least a score
of prominent persons who were active lead
ers in the massacre of foreigners. This 13
borne out by all the legations and by the
consular reports from China. It is borne
out by Mr. Conger's statement. Germany,
however, is not disposed to insist upon the
punishment of all the guilty. What she de
mands Is that an example be made of per
sons of high rank in order to show the
Chinese strikingly and convincingly that
the powers have enforced a severe expia
tion for misdeeds and to teach a whole
some and lasting lesson the lesson that
the lives and property of foreigners must
be safe in China."
MARINES LEAVE TAKU.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 12. Adjutant Gen

EVANSVILLE, Ind.. Oct. 12. -The same
enthusiasm which was manifested in greet
ing Colonel Roosevelt here to-night wa3
present in equal degree in the great au
dience which heard Colonel Charles Denby,
Evansville's distinguished statesman and
diplomat, who has cast the traditions of.a
lifetime behind him and ig effectively
campaigning for McKinley and Roosevelt
and the Nation's honor and prosperity.
Colonel Denby spoke as follows:
"Much as old Democrats regret to part
company with their friends, tney are con
soled now by the retlection that Mr. Bry
an is only one-third a Democrat. He is
the nominee of two other parties besides
the Democratic. He Is both a Populist
and a free-silver man, and he is bound in
honor to carry out the principles of both
these parties. He tells us that the Philip
pine question la the paramount issue of
the election, but his conduct on that ques
tion has been inconsistent with both law
and morals. It cannot be doubted that
with him rested the decision whether the
Paris treaty was to be ratified.
"To ratify it seventeen opposition votes
were necessary. It was ratified by one
majority. Ten Democratic senators, three
Populists and four silver senators voted
for ratification. Thus the three parties
which suppoit him were all committed to
the purchase of the Philippines without
first obtaining "the ; consent of the gov
erned." One word from Mr. Bryan would
have defeated the ratification. It is well
known that he persistently personally urged
ratification. If the treaty had not been
ratified there would have been no pre
tense of imperialism. The Philippines
would have gone their way into the arms
of Spain or Germany, or have become dis
cordant and warring factions. At all
events, we would have been done with
"Mr. Bryan cannot be permitted now
to derive advantage from denouncing u
line of conduct for which he is even more
responsible than Mr. McKinley Is, because
the Republicans were powerless to ratify
the treaty without Democratic assistance.
"It is the old familiar doctrine of the
owner of a horse standing by at its sale,
and not disclosing his claim to the horse.
After an Innocent purchaser has bought
the horse the owner cannot assert title to
it; but Mr. Bryan did more than stand
by; he actually advised the purchaser to
buy the horse. He thereby vouched that
the title was good, but now he says that
we secured nothing for our JJO.000.uuO, ' be
cause we did not first get the consent of
Aguinaldo. He reminds me of an old In
diana politician who was in favor of the
enactment of the Maine liquor law, but was
opposed to its enforcement.
BRYAN'S REAL PURPOSE.
"His real purpose for this tergiversation
was to raise up the bogey of imperialism in
order that he might kill the monster. When
the fight against imperialism and militar
ism actually comes off it is safe to say that
the old soldiers of the country will put it to
death without Mr. Bryan's assistance, in
that event they will do again what they did
when they saved the Union and the Consti
tution from 1S61 to G5.
"It is no novel thing in this country for
men to oppose the acquisition of foreign
territory, but it is new for the Democratic
party to do it. When the Louisiana pur
chase was made, when Texas was annexed,
when California, Hawaii and Alaska were
acquired even more violent denunciation of
expansion was made than now; but from
Jen'erson to Voorhees the Democrats were
expansionists. The very land we stand on
the great Northwest Territory wa3 our
first acquisition. He would be a bold and
rash man who would now dispute Its value
lo the United States.
"In this campaign the paramount issue is
the question of currency. I offered the
other day for sale at one of our banks three
Mexican dollars and was offered 90 cents
for the lot. Why should the capitalist, or
the wage earner, or anybody in his senses,
want to debase our money? Why should
our money not be as good as that of any
other country? You can travel around the
world now and be sure that your sliver dol
lar or greenback is worth as much pro rata
as the English sovereign. The American
soldier goes into a hotel at Manila, eats a
good dinner, lays down an American dollar
and goes out with a Mexican dollar for his
"But this is threshing old straw. Very
few persons in Evansville doubt the truth
of these statements, and while everybody
admits that Bryan will do the crazy thing
of debasing our currency if he can, the
most influential of his supporters are rely
ing upon the proposition that as President
he will not have the power to do it. This
is a dangerous reliance. He may order our
bonds to be paid in silver, and thus put us
on a silver basis. It Is the first time in the
history of politics that a party ever relied
on its opponent to prevent its own candi
date from destroying the country. Would
it not be simpler to beat him and be done
with him once for all?
'The argument Is that we must take
the fearful risk of destroying our pros
perity in order that Aguinaldo and his
Tagalos may rule the other tribes In tho
Philippines. The history of the Philippine
has been a long story of oppression. Dur
ing the rebellion of 1SIK the order of the
day was the execution of suspected persons
without any pretense of trial. Thus, among
countless ethers the patriot Rizal was ex
ecuted. Twenty thousand Spaniards wit
nessed the execution and cried vlve Es
pana. and the band marched by the corpse
playing the march of Cadiz.
NO PROMISES MADE.
"By the convention of Biac-na-bato, mad-;
in December of 1S37, Spain bought off
Aguinaldo and thirty of his chiefs for JK"0,
(00, and they agreed to leave the islands
forever. They left the Islands and they
tiever would have 50t back In this world if
Dewey had not gone to Manila. Shall we
Hush at that victory now? The political
advantages shall be repudiate now?
"The 13th of August, IS'jS, we took Ma
nila. Agulnaldo's troops came on behind
cur soldiers with bags ready to be filled
with loot. Our men drove them back, und
this was our first ofTense. Shall we be
Mamcd for taking Manila? We were :it
war with Spain, remember. We had taken
San Juan and Santiago, and we would
probabiy have taken Cadiz, and. perhaps,
Madrid. If the war had not terminated.
"We arc charged with having promised
Aguinaldo independence, but nobody has
even located the man who made the prom
ise. Admiral Dewey vows he never made
nny Mich promise. Generals Mtrritt ami
Anderson say the same thing. Jt was un
dertaken to be fastened on Mr. Pratt, our
consul at Singpore, but when Foreman
wrote a book and charged him with it.
he sued Foreman for libel and the pub
lication of the book was enjoined until tho
pages objected to were cut out of the whole
edition. Our consuls at Manila, Mr. Wil
liams, .-.nd at Hong-Kong, Mr. Wildman.
both dory the charge.
-Our army, having captured Manila,
stayed there, as the protocol of Aug. U
required it should do. Then commenced a
series of assaults and Insults on our sol
diers by the troops of Aguinaldo which
were encamped around the city. General
Otls's orders were to avoid at all hazards
bringing on a fight. We turned our cheek,
as the Bible says we ought to do. to the
Filipinos; but the Bible does not com
mand us to turn both cheks.
"On the night of Feb. A. at S:43. occurred
the Incident which furnished to the Insur
gents an excuse for which they had been
waiting to attack us. An insurgent of
ficer undertook to pass our guard at San
Juan bridge with a detail of men. He was
driven back. A little later a large body
of insurgent troops advanced on the out
posts where the South Dakota troops were
stationed. The troops fell back tmder
orders, rather than fire. At about the
same time a Filipino lieutenant with six
men again attemepted to cross the San
Juan bridge. Private Greyson. of Com
pany D. First Nebraska Regiment Mr.
Bryan's own State was stationed there as
a sentinel with orders to allow no one to
cross his post. He warned the lieutenant
three times to halt, but without effect, and
then he tired, killing the lieutenant. The
Filipinos returned the fire and then re
treated. The sentinel simply obeyed orders.
He might have been shot himself, if he had
not done so. Then in a ' moment sky
rockets went up along a line five miles
long and the Filipinos male a concerted
and vigorous attack on our lines. What
did our soldiers do? Did they turn and
flee? Not much! They stood their ground.
They drove the enemy before them.
"Is there a man here to-night who will
say that our men ought to have turned
tail and fled and abandoned Manila to the
insurgents? Will anybody blame the Presi
dent for holding the territory which at the
instance and request of Mr. Bryan the
United States had bought? From that day
to this the policy of the administration has
been one of peace.
OUR DUTY TO FILIPINOS.
"I was in Manila for six months on the
first commission. We were Instructed to
offer and did offer to Aguinaldo every
thing short of independence. We had no
power to give away the territory of the
United States. Local self-government, re
forms, education, protection, all things that
men prize, were offered in vain. Backed up
by a powerful party in thi3 country, Ag
uinaldo would listen to no terms except
absolute independence, and that is the
paramount principle of the Democrats at
this hour. We have contracted obligations
by the treaty to Spain, and to the other
powers. We are bound to abide by them.
We owe a solemn duty to the friendly
Filipinos not to abandon them to the tender
mercies of the Tagalos, and we owe some
thing to the cause of liberty and progress.
"In the Kansas City platform no question
is made of the consent of the governed.
There is to be no vote, no reference of the
subject to the people of the islands. They
are not to be consulted, but whether they
will or no we are to pull down the flag and
vacate the Islands. It is provided, how
ever, that we are to protect them against
other nations. Without, however, glory or
pay, we are to run amuck. We are to be
the Don Quixotes of the world, and to keep
up vast standing armies and navies to pro
tect people In whom we are not to have the
slightest interest. This is a wild, absurd
programme. The treaty of Paris provides
that the Congres shall determine the status
of the Filipinos. Until it does so, the
President must under his oath of office
safeguard and protect the property of the
United States, lie is organizing a civil
government for the Islands. He is estab
lishing schools. He Is executing reforms.
The Filipinos will be as free as the citi
zens of one of our Territories.
"We are going to show the world that
Republican principles can be relied on to
establish freedom even among the dark
skinned races of humanity. Long ago
one Island. Negro, raised the stars and
stripes and declared for us. One tribe, the
Macabeebes, has been our scouts and soN
dlers. Even the fierce Moro in the Sulu
archipelago has sworn fealty to us.
"Some fuss Is made over the proposition
that we pay the Sultan and Datos allow
ances, and there is a terrible fuss over
polygamy and slavery. As to the allow
ances, we have always paid them to our
own Indians, and we have allowed the
chiefs to have seven squaws if they wanted
them. As to slavery, the President refused
to recognize It, and it is doomed to an early
extinction. Under -the thirteenth amend
ment to the Constitution it connot be rec
ognized. It is better for the President to
pay a few Mexican dollars to the Moros
than to fight them.
The chief difficulty that we encounter in
the Philippines is, the support and encour
agement which are given to the guerrillas
by Mr. Bryan and his supporters. With
draw the constant promise of independence
which Is held out if Bryan is elected and
the killing of our soldiers would cease to
morrow. Every speech that Bryan makes
costs the loss of lives 011 both sides of the
struggle. If the fighting were to end to
day the paramount issue would be deal
and so would Bryan'sm."

o'clock Mr. Hunt was introduced by
Charles Frickey, who 'presided, and was
greeted with hearty cheers. Mr. Hunt had
just finished a tour of the First district

husky in the beginning, but in a little
while It gained strength and for over two
hours he held the closest attention of his
The first hour of Mr. Hunt's speech
was of purely local application. The
Bryan and Stevenson Club had recently
adopted a lot of resolutions on militarism
and other subjects and Mr. Hunt was
asked to review and answer these resolu

his audience, his stinging comments being

GOV. MOIWT'M SPEECH.
A Fine Presentation of the Leading
Inaacn at Anderson.
Special to the Indianapolis Journal.
ANDERSON, Ind., Oct. 11 Gov. James
A. Mount won new laurels in Anderson
yesterday. He has been a favorite with
Madison county audiences for a number of
yearsi but the effort of yesterday pur
passed all others in the estimation of
those who know him best. It was a dlfü-
cult undertaking to begin a speech just as
Governor Roosevelt was leaving, and the
confusion was great when ho began speak
ing. He had not spoken a dozen sentences,
however, before he was the absolute
master of the crowd. The issues of state
and national campaigns were presented in
a strong light, and there was enthusiasm
even greater than that which greeted tho
vice presidential candidate. Gov. Mount
portrayed Bryan as a dangerous man
and ridiculed his pretenses of anxiety
about the trusts and imperialism menacing
the liberties of the people. He showed that
Bryan is not sincere and ought to be de
feated. Governor Mount's statement that Indiana
is safely Republican this year received tre
mendous applause, but he urged Madison
county people to exert themselves to the
utmost that the Legislature be saved and
tho re-election of Senator Fairbanks to
the United States Senate made certain.

25,000,000 TONS OF IRON ORE
MINED IX 1S90, OVER ONE-THIRD OF
THE WORLD'S OUTPUT.
Grovrth of the Steel Indastry Ux
Seuator Gray to Be a Member of
the Arbitration Tribunal.
Special to the Indianapolis Journal.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 12. The Treasury
Bureau of Statistics has Just Issued a com
mercial monograph on the iron and steel
trade of the United States, treating of the
resources of this industry, its development,
and its relations to the domestic and for
eign markets. In this document tho
progress of the iron and steel trade is il
lustrated by maps and diagrams showing
the distribution of iron ores in Europe and
North America, the comparative develop
ment in the production of pig iron by
countries since 1S73, the growth of the steel
output of the several leading nations, the
change in the relation of iron and steel
exports and imports, and the course of
prices for pig iron and steel rails In tho
United States. The United States is now
the world's greatest producer of Iron and
steel and coal, as well as of copper, cot
ton, breadstuffs, provisions, and many
ether articles entering into the daily re
quirements of man.
In a comparative survey of the world's
iron-ore situation, the remarkable fact is
brought out that the United States in 1S?J
produced 30 per cent, of the world's ore, or
13,000,000 tons out of a total of 85,000,000
tons, in round numbers. This quantity is
somewhat less than the combined ore out
put of both Great Britain and Germany In
cluding Luxemburg, which produced re
spectively 17 and 21 per cent, of the world's
ere supply. This alone gives the United
States the leadership among the world'c
great ore producers; but this fact must be
taken in connection with coal produc
tion on which the Iron industry depends
and of which this country produces 22 per
cent, of the world's output, while Great
Britain produces SO per cent, and Ger
many 19 per cent. With primacy in coal
and iron ore the position of the United
States fs one of undisputed and permanent
ascendency In her control of the raw ma
tt rials of iron and steel production. This
primacy In raw materials gives the United
States a self-sufficing position, as compared
with that of her foremost rivals Germany
and Great Britain. While the Dortmund.
Germany, furnaces have to go to northern
Sweden for iron ores and the furnaces of
Cleveland (England) have to get their ore3
from northern and southern Spain, and
United States is far freer to locate her iron
and steel Industries with direct regard to
the conditions of maximum economy in tho
accumulation of raw materials and the dis
tribution of the finished products. There
fore, as coke has displaced coal, the tend
ency the world over is for the furnace to
leave the colliery and move toward the
ere mines. Hence the iron and steel indus
tries of this country are gradually being
drawn around the southern shores of Lake
Erie within easy access of the vast ore
deposits of the Lake Superior mines. Th-J
'preponderance of this single source of
ore production is apparent from the fact
that the Lake Superior region furnished
7: per cent, of the 25,000,000 tons of ore con
sumed by our furnaces in 1SW. while tho
Southern States furnished 13 per cent, and
the Eastern States but 8 per cent. One of
the most wonderful developments In mod
ern trade is that of the ore-handling fa
cilities from the Lake Superior mines to
the furnaces of Ohio and Pennsylvania.
Among the world's great pig iron pro
ducers the United States first attained the
leadership in 1890; but in 1S14 lost it to Great
Erltaln again, only, however, for the time
being. In 1895 the United States finally out
ranked the United Kingdom. In 1SW the five
great pig iron producers stood in the fol
lowing order of importance:
United States 13,620,703
Great Britain 9,305.319
The growth of the steel industry is next
taken up, and the transition from the iron
to the steel age is indicated by the substi
tution of steel rails for iron rails in railway
building. Here again the United States
holds the primacy, because of her produc
ing almost 40 per cent, of the world's steel
output, while Great Britain produces 18
per cent., and Germany 21 per cent. No oth
er nation converts so much of its pig iron
into steel as the United States does. Of
the world's pig iron output. 40.000,000 tons,
70 per cent., is made into steel; whereas,
this country converts 77 per cent, of its pig
Iron tonnage Into steel, amounting to 10,
63G.S58 tons out of the world's total output
of 27,110,000 tons. The United States is the
foremost steel-consuming country of the
world, a single city having consumed 123,000
tons In a year for building purposes alone,
and one car company having required 400,
000 tons of steel to meet its yearly con
tracts. In 1873 about one-third of our pig
iron was made into rails, but since that
date steel rails have ceased to be the chief
form of steel production, their proportion
In 1808 being but one-sixth of the whole.
The consumption of steel per capita for
nonrail uses in 1S79 was 75.4 pounds; In 1&S9.
213.2 pounds; in IM4, 276.2 pounds, showing
how other than rail uses of steel have de
veloped in twenty years.
In our iron and steel trade with foreign
countries covering the last twenty years
our position has been exactly reversed.
Within the last five years we have actually
changed from an importing to an exporting
nation. In 1880 we imported five times as
much in value as we exported of iron and
steel products. Now we export six times
the value of our Iron and steel imports.
These export?, in 1000, aggregated J12L.853,
341, thus ranking next to breadstuffs. cot
ton and provisions, the three higher in
value. There are In the Iron and steel ex
ports twenty-one classes, valued at from
$1,XR,000 to $3,000,000 each.
It Is understood that the President has
selected Judge George Gray, of Delaware,
to represent the United States with former
President Benjamin Harrison, on the

ber of the Paris peace commission, and
is now a United States Judge for the
Third Judicial circuit. His selection will
not involve the surrender of that position.
