man of the Republican mass meeting tfcere: "Your notice of the meeting tn-nSght Is received. I would t glad to meet my friends and constituents of Salem and Columbiana counties on this occa?Ion, but this privilege 1.- denied me. I can never for get their unyielding devotion to Republican principles and ttcir uniform kindness to me from my rlrst candidacy for Congress In 166 to the present time. Please present to those assembled mv appreciation and Rood wishes. WILLIAM MK1NLEY." HIG RAMA' AT OYSTER RAY. Gurrmor ltonsrvrlt , Mdkes it Speech nt Hi I.ohk Inland Home. NEW YORK. Nov. S. Governor Roow velt wound up the Republican national campaign to-night by delivering: an address at Oyster Bay, L. I., before one of the larg est gatherings that ever assembled at that place. Prior to the meeting there was a parade led by five bands. William Howard, Xiresident of the McKinley and Roosevelt Club of Oyster Bay, presided over the meeting. When the Governor appeared be was greeted by long and continued ap plause. He faid In part: "In this campaign I have not only ap pealed to the Republicans, but to all who have the honor and Integrity of the coun try at heart. I have appealed to higher motives than partisanship. I have appealed to honor. I have appealed to all. whether they agree or disagree with me In my politic, to stand by their country. I have appealed to the teachings of Jefferson and Jackson and of Lincoln. Mr. Jefferson was an expansionist and he It was who was expanded over Nebraska and governed the Indians without their consent. "ilr. Croker says he Is in politics for his pocket. I am not criticising him, only Quoting him. As for Jackson he was for hard money, expansion and honor for the flag. If Croker were to walk over Jack son's grave Jackson would turn over in his grave with disgust. "We must beat Bryan and also stamp out Cryanism. "Tho Republican party stands to-day for continued prosperity. Compare the times to-day with those of four years ago, when McKinley became President. Mr. Bryan said if McKinley were elected there would be bad times. We said there would be prosperity, and there has been. "The triumph of silver would paralyze business, and It would hurt most the labor ing man and the mechanic those who arc paid by the week and month. There has been greater prosperity in the last four years than ever before. The price of prod uce ha3 increased GO per cent., failures have decreased, mortgages have decreased in number and amount, the deposits In the savings banks have Increased, and all this in spite of Mr. Bryan's prophecy. This cannot be called an accident, nor can a return to old conditions be an accident. There Is no earthly excuse for the return to the conditions that existed before the present administration. The people know what is before them, and if they vote against their own Instincts it Is their own fault. "To-morrow promises success. The great parade of Saturday in New York certainly shows business men were aroused. For hour after hour they marched in the rain to testify their devotion to the cause of the Kation and the flag, and It argues success." Governor Roosevelt then discussed in a general way the national Issues. He was frequently cheered, and at the close of the meeting was tendered a great reception. Obituary. PITTSBURG. Pa.. Nov. 5.-J.

WASHINGTON, Ind., Nov. 5.-IIenry Giles, aged eighty-one, shot and killed him self at Elnora, near here, to-night. He recently moved from this city to Elnora. He was an ardent supporter of McKinley, but was told by Democrats that his vote would be challenged If he attempted to vote, and that he might get himself in prison for It. He brooded over it so much that he became temporarily insane. To night he went Into his room and blew out his brains. The suicide and the circum stances leading to it have caused a sensa tion in Elnora poll teal circles. Giles voted for Fremont and Lincoln, and said If he could not vote for McKinley he would rather die. DE PAUW DEFEATS FRANKLIN. Makes n Touchdown in Each Half nnd Kicks One Goal. Special to tb Indianapolis Journal. GREENCASTLE. Ind., Soy. 5. De Pauw this afternoon established her right to lead the second-class college teams of the State by winning easily 'from Franklin. The score was 11 to 0. Franklin sent the heav iest team on tha field, but was outplayed in every particular by De Pauw. Frank lin make the first kick-off, but the Metho dists got the ball, and within three minutes Captain Gregory went through the line for a touchdown. Jackson failed to kick goal. Time ended with the ball on Franklin's live-yard line. During the first part of the second half Franklin took a brace and worked toward fcoal, but De Pauw got the pigskin on downs and slowly, but steadily, moved toward the Franklin goal by punts, and finally Gregory made his second touch down and kicked goal.

AValmnh High School Defeated. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. WABASH, Ind., Nov. 5. The Wabash football team was worsted to-day In a game with the Fort Wayne High School eleven. The first half was easy for Wabash, who scored 17 points. In the second half, how ever, the Wabash team lost Its head, and as the Wabash umpire was objected to and taken out of the game, the Fort Wayne referee had things his own way. Fort Wayne scored 10 in the first and 10 In the second half, while Wabash got a goose egg in the second, the final score being 20 to 17. This is the first defeat the Wabash High School eleven has sustained, and it has been on the gridiron four years. COMMITTEE SUSTAINS FLEET.

DISAPPOINTMENT AT WABASH Over the Poor Showing: Made In the Census Report. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. WABASH, Ind., Nov. 5. There Is great disappointment here over the poor showing made by Wabash and Wabash county in the census returns, published to-day. There had been claims of a population of 12,000, by enthusiastic residents of this city, but conservative estimates were 10,000, while the census gives the city only 8.618. This Is a gain over the population in 1890 of 3,513. or nearly 69 per cent. There ha9 been a large falling off in the farming dis tricts of the county, the imputation of the county being 28,235, an increase of but 1.100 in ten years. The loss in the country has almost wiped out the increase in the towns. The county, before the census was taken, was estimated at 30,000. Joyful Surprise for Parents. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. BRAZIL, Ind., Nov. 5. Mr. and Mrs. William Pennar, who, for the past two months, have mourned their son Mungo as dead, a friend having written them that he was killed in the Philippines, were treated to a joyful surprise this evening, by receiving Information from the War De partment that their son is alive and in good health, having survived the Injury he received while hoisting the American fiag on a captured fort.

Wag ner, a well-known resident of North Man chester, the father of Howard Wagner, principal of the North Manchester schools, and Clyde Wagner, principal of the schools of Roann. dropped dead last night. He was returning from the barn to the house, when he was stricken with heart disease, and the friends who had rushed to him found life extinct. He was a veteran of the civil war and about seventy years old. Indiana Notes. The Rev. Dr. L. L. Carpenter, of Wabash, preached the dedicatory sermon at the ded ication of a new Christian Church at Ho mer, Sunday. Diphtheria, or very serious membranous cioup. is prevalent at Whftestown. The fourth death has occurred, and there are live other severe cases in town. Perry Edmondsoti, who fell from a scaf fold at Flora. last week, a distance of thirty feet, died yesterday from the In juries resulting. His home was in Vir ginia. Hunters are still slaughtering young fiuail around Clay City, although Game Warden Griffin has iut on fifteen deputies and has offered $10 reward for informa tion leading to each arrest and conviction. The usual thing happened near Pendle tcn yesterday, when Sam Roberts, seven teen years old. climbed a fence with a gun in his hand. His left arm and shoulder were shattered, and he Is not expected to recover from the injuries. Yotlnsr 3Inchlnes m Necessity. Cleveland Leader. When the voters of Cleveland go to tho rolls they will be given, besides the regu lar ballots, small ballots, upun which they can designate whether they wish to have voting machines installed in this city or whether they do not. They will not make any mistake by voting in favor of the ma chines. The volins machine is not an experiment nny longer; it has stood the test of use. It la a simple machine, not easily got out of order. The voter pulls a curtain behind his back, and by the simple process of moving pointers, properly labeled, records his choice tor all the offices to be filled. He can't make the same pointer count twice. Each vote is automatically counted by the machine, in the same way that fares are registered in street cars, and when the polls close the dials of the machine show at a glance what the totals are. The voting machine, and there are sev eral good ones, is an almost absolute guar antee against frauds and mistakes. It prevents a man from casting more than one vote for a candidate; it makes ballot box stuffing impossible; it counts every vote and it does not make mistakes in addi tion. The only way that cheating can be done with the machine is for every elec tion official tn the voting booth to partici pate in it. It3 next best merit Is celerity. Voting machines being used, Cleveland will know the result of the city election, next jpring, in exact figures, two hours after the polU are closed. HOW IT MAY GO. (CONCLUDED FROM FIRST PAGE.) that the Legislature Is safe ior the lie publicans. On the other hand. Chairman Hall says that the whole State ticket will not run behind Bryan, and that the Legis lature is positively fusion. In the congressional districts the honors probably will be divided. Edgar Howard will likely be defeated by Representative Mercer, Republican, but the former's friends claim that he has a good chance of overturning the usual majority. In the First district George W. Berge has an up hill fight against Representative K. J. Burkett. Republican, and the latter's elec tion is likely. The other districts will not be close, excepting, perhaps, the Fifth. The election of Robinson, fusion, in the Third; Stark, fusion. In the Fourth; Neville, fu sion, in the Sixth, is conceded. Shallen berger will probably be elected over Mor lan. Republican, in the Fifth, although Re publicans are claiming gains there. SITUATION IX 3IIXXESOTA. McKinley Will Carry the State, but Vote for Governor Slay Be Close. ST.. PAUL, Minn., Nov. 5. This year's campaign in Minnesota has been closely contested at nearly all points, although the most work has been done by the Demo crats on the governorship and the ihres railroad commissioners. Bryan, Rooevelt, Woolley, Hanna and othe outside speakers have been in the State and an active cam paign has been made in many counties where heretofore there had been only one ticket named. The Republicans closed their campaign in this ci:y to-night with four meetings. A letter from United States Senator Davis was read in support of McKinley. Senator Knute Nelson made three speeches in dif ferent parts of the city and a grand rally at the auditorium was addressed by Gen eral E. S. Bragg, of Wisconsin, Hon. W H. Poison and Hon. Daniel W. Lawler," former Democratic national committeeman from Minnesota. The election of Minnesota McKinley elec tors seems assured, the Democratic com mittee only expressing a belief in the pos sibility of Bryan carrying the State with out actually claiming it. The Republicans place the McKinley plurality at from 50,000 to 75,000. The re-election of Governor Lind over Captain S. R. Vansant is claimed by the Democrats by over 20,000, which Is the I figure given by the Republicans in their claim for Vansant. The result for Gover nor will undoubtedly be close. The Re publicans will elect the balance of their State ticket down to railroad commission ers, on what the Democrats have put up a stiff fight, making the result doubtful. REPUBLICANS ELATED. Fine Weather Means a Big: Vote for 3fcKlnler in Illinois. CHICAGO, Nov. 5.-Both parties in Illi nois have completed their final arrange ments and are confident of the result of to morrow's voting. Never have the plans of camapign managers in this State been more comprehensive or laid with greater care and no presidential campaign since that of Blaine and Cleveland in 1SS4 has been fought out with greater energy In this State than the one that has just closed. Both Democratic and Republican man agers have made every preparation against unlawful action at the polls by their op ponents, but there has been less tak of such things this year than in prior cam paigns. The chances are that there will be no more fraudulent voting than occurs at every city election. The board of election commissioners late at night commenced the distribution of ballots to the various precinct judges, but although carefully systematized, the work will be hardly completed by daylight. Be cause of the great number of State and county officials to be voted for the ballots this year are about the size of a small cir cus poster. A very full vote will be polled In the State at large and especially In Chicago and Cook county. The fight here has been of the warmest description and every ef fort will be made to bring the full voting strength of both parties into the field. The Republicans, in particular, are elated at the prospect of fine weather to-morrow and say it means their sure success. The Democratic managers declare that weather will make no difference and that rain or shine the election is sure to result in a sweeping Democratic triumph. IN MASSACHUSETTS. Republicans Say 100,000 for McKinley Democrats Concede Only 50,000. BOSTON, Mass., Nov. 5.-Although the majority of the voters in Massachusetts will cast their ballots to-morrow in favor of MCKInley and Roosevelt, just what tho blze of this majority will be and just how many Republican congressmen will be elected is a matter upon which the party leaders fail to agree. -Tho Republicans arc confident that President McKinley will have at least 100,000 votes more than Mr. Bryan, while tho Democrats believe that 50,000 will be nearer the mark. Four years ago the Republicans carried the State by 175.000 plurality, but dissensions in the Dem ocratic ranks cut a wide swath in the or dinary party vote. This year this disaffec tion has almost entirely disappeared. It is believed that Governor Crane will run somewhat ahead of the national ticket, especially in the western part of the State. As usual, the Republican State candidates will be elected, with the exception, per haps, of auditor, as there is a strong senti ment, especially among the grand army veterans, against Henry F. Turner, of Mai den, who defeated the incumbent, John W. Kimball, of Fitchburg. In the convention. It will not be surprising, therefore, if Wil liam G. Merrill, the Prohibitionist candi date for the office, is elected. As for the congressmen, nine Republicans and ono Democrat are practically sure of election, while in two other districts indications also favor the Republicans. Very little change Is expected In the Legislature, which has been always strongly Repub lican. ALL NUT31EGC.FRS WILL VOTE. .McKinley Will, Therefore Carry Con necticut ly Increased Plurality. NEW HAVEN, Conn., Nov. 5. Observers who are not Intensely partisan predict a safe McKinley margin and a probable Re publican victory of the 3taro t'eket. On the latter point, however, they are careful not to express In figures their opinion. The two State committees to-day issued ::ew statements. Each was full of conGdcnce and the claims were more emphatic than in the statements of last week. The Re publicans insist, with Increased ligurt-s. that a wholesale victory for that party Is in the air. The Democrats are more com bative than heretofore, and In addition to claims of a State ticket walkover are in clined to take Connecticut from its posi tion in the doubtful column of their tables and edge it over to the Bryan column. The feature of the day has been the circulation of literature of the roorback type. Circulars in many forms have been sent to almost every class of voters. Charges have been volleyed from the or ganization headquarters only to be met with disavowal and counter charges. Al together the day has been a lively one. Indications point to the casting of an im- mense vote, with complications that will result In a delayed count. IOWA WILL REMAIN TRUE. McKinley' Plurality -May ot lie Less Tlinn Seventy-Seven Tlionnnnd. DES MOINES. Ia.. Nov. 5.-The chief feature of the day before election In Iowa was a statement issued by Chairman H. D. Weaver, of the Republican State cen tral committee, in reply to the public claims by Chairman Huffman, of tho Democratic State central committee, that the Demo crats will carry fifteen more counties In Iowa this year than heretofore, will elect congressmen in the First, Second, Sixth and Eighth districts, and that they have more than an even show to win in a fifth district, which Mr. Huffman declined to name, but Is known to be the Fourth, where he feels that the 7,000 or more plurality for Haugen two years ago tan be overcome. In Chairman Weaver's statement he directs attention to the pri vate circulars sent out by the Democratic chairman, recommending the organization of vigilance committees to watch the count of Iowa returns, and says In part: "There have never been any attempts to Intro duce Southern methods In Iowa campaigns, and the Republicans do not propose to stand it at this time. We know we have the votes to carry the State by an over whelming majority. These votes will be polled and counted. There i3 absolutely no question that Republicans will carry every congressional district in Iowa. The Republicans of Iowa will give McKinley and Roosevelt 77,000 plurality, and will elect every Republican congressional can didate." PLURALITY 3IAY DE REDUCED. McKinley May Not Carry Pennsylva nia hy 205,072 To-Day. PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 5. Very little In terest is manifested relative to the vote of the State in the presidential contest, as a big Republican majority is conceded even by the Democratic leaders. Four years ago McKinley's plurality In the State was 293.072, of which plurality Philadelphia furnished 113,139. The highest previous plurality In the State for a presidential candidate was 125,548 for Grant, in 1S72. In 1S92 Harrison's plurality was C3.747. Mc Kinley's plurality of four years ago will no doubt be considerably reduced through the return to their party of many Demo crats who opposed Bryan in 181)6. and it Is thought also that McKinley's vote will be reduced to some extent on account of the fierce contests of the Quay and anti Quay Republicans to obtain control of tha next Legislature. The anti-Quay men In some sections have Indorsed the Demo cratic legislative candidates. It is be lieved that this will, in close sections, have some effect against the head of the Republican ticket. There is, therefore, every indication of a considerable reduc tion in McKinley's figures of four years ago. EITHER IS MISTAKEN. Republican nnd Democratic Chairmen Roth Claim Maryland by 10,00. BALTIMORE, Md., Nov. 5. On the night before election the leaders of both polit ical parties profess to be confident of vic tory at to-morrow's balloting, and both sides claiming the State by pronounced majorities. Before leaving for his home in Hartford county to-night, whither he hgroes to vote, Chairman Murray Vandlver, of the Democratic State central commit tee, said: "I have no hesitancy in claim ing that we will carry the State by from 5,000 to 10,0u0, and that both city and coun ties will contribute to that end. We will not only carry the State for Bryan, but will elect four congressmen sure, and it would not surprise me in the least if Major Little should defeat Pearre in the Sixth district." Chairman Phillips Lee Goldsborough, of the Republican state committee, said to day that he looks for even a larger ma jority than the 11.00C which he mentioned last night as his estimate, and insists that Maryland's congressional delegation will be entirely Republican. He will not go to Cambridge to vote, but will remain at headquarters throughout the day. Senator McComas left to-night for Washington county. OHIO DEMOCRATS WILD. Shovr Evidence of Joneslsm hy Claim ing the State for Rrynn. CINCINNATI, Nov. 5. All speculation to-night is on the question of Democratic gains In the cities and Republican gains in the rural districts of Ohio. John R. Mc Lean Is here trying to reduce the Repub lican plurality in Hamilton county one-half. This county gave McKinley almost 20,000 plurality four years ago. Republican State Chairman Dick say3 his poll shows more than 80,000 for McKinley in Ohio, and seven teen of the twenty-one congressmen. Democratic State Chairman Long claims Bryan will carry Ohio, "unless prevented by coercion and purchase." Both sides are Issuing notices and warn ings about the use of pencils and all sorts of frauds. There is much excitement In some cities and especially in the towns of close congressional districts. It was thought that there would be no congressional con tests here, but much fighting developed to day between Bromwell, (Rep.) and Kettler, (Dem.) in the Second district. Mother Hubbard Parade. WHEELING, W. Va., Nov. 5. Wheel ing's "Mother. Hubbard" parade, the even ing before presidential elections, when the members of the marching clubs of all par tics come together and join in a great dem onstration In honor of the woman's suf frage candidate for President, is unique, and original with this city. To-night's affair, in honor of Mrs. Catt, was the largest on record, fully 2,000 marchers be ing in line. The real woman's suffragists, however, have on this occasion entered an emphatic protest against the demonstra tion, but the opposition seemed to add to the favor with which the public looked at it. Over 30,000 people lined the streets and laughed at the queer and ridiculous cos tumes the marchers wore. The situation, tc-night, is unchanged. The Republicans continue to claim the State by over 15,000. Returns Will Re Late in California. SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 5.-According to the Weather Bureau there will be fair weather in California to-morrow, and the full registered vote will probably be polled. The chairmen of the Republican and Dem ocratic State committees still Insist that their respective parties will carryi the State by from 12,000 to 13,000. They say that nothing has oc curred to change their opinion. The voting to-morrow .will commence at sunrise and the polls close at sundown. The result in California will probably not be known until Wednesday night, as the count of ballots does not commence until after the polls close. Probably not more than 50 per cent of the precincts In this State will be heard from on Tuesday night, but it is thought that sufficient returns will be received to get a line on how the State is going. AVlseonsin Conceded to Republicans. MILWAUKEE, Wis., Nov. 5.-Robert M. La Follette and Louis G. Bohmrich, can didates for Governor of Wisconsin of the Republican and Democratic parties respec tively, wound up the State campaign In their home towns, Madison and Kenosha, to-night. Ex-Governor John P. Altgeld, of Illinois, closed the national campaign of Wisconsin in this city to-night. The Re publicans finished their national work here on Saturday. The Indications point to Republican suc cess throughout the State. Even the Dem ocratic press concedes the State to Mc Kinley. The Republican State ticket un doubtedly will be elected, with a Repub lican Legislature. Of the ten congressmen to be elected nine are practically conceded to the Republicans, the Democrats appar ently having a chance in the Second dis trict. North Dnkotu ItepoMIcan. FARGO, N. D Nov. 5. The weather Is perfect and predictions are , for a con tinuation of good weather to-morrow. At all Important points to-night closing speeches were made, a majority of them by Democrats. More personal work was done during the past two days than during the forepart of the campaign, most of the candidates giving the time to their home constituents. Neither com mittee has any changes to make in Its estimates. McKinley will carry the State. but th- Republican state ticket will get a smaller vote. The State is, however, ap parently safely Republican. An increase of 10,000 or 12,000 votes will make the ma jority rather uncertain. It is believed now that every voter will exercise the fran chise. A close fight will be made here for state Senate member holding over until after the next senatorial election. Widely Divergent Views. ST. LOUIS, Nov. 5. Democrats express the utmost confidence in their nbilfy to place Alexander M. Dockery In the guber natorial chair by a plurality of 30.000 and upwards, and of giving the national ticket a majority of from 40,000 to 43,000. The Re publicans are equally confident. Many be lieve McKinley and Roosevelt will have a Blight majority over Bryan and Stevenson, and that Railroad Commission r Joseph Flory will be entitled to take his seat in the Governor's chair. Others, not so san guine, "think that the Democratic national ticket will show a greatly reduced plural ity. The Democrats say they will elect thirteen out of fifteen congressmen to be voted for, and the Republicans expect to elect five out of the fifteen, a gain of two. South Dakota Claimed by Roth. SIOUX FALLS, S. D., Nov. 5. Eve of election finds both parties still stoutly claiming that they will cary the State. Conservative Republicans estimate the ma jority for their ticket in the State between six and eight thousand, and say this ma jority will carry with It the congressional and State tickets, and a comfortable ma jority on Joint ballot In the next Legisla ture. The fuslonists say Bryan will carry the State by at least 2,000, and that their congressional and State nominees , will be elected by majorities ranging from 1,500 to 3,500.

In one respect, at least, Willam J. Bryan iz a great leader: He has implicit belief In himself and sublime confidence in his suc cess Tuesday. Mr. Bryan left Chicago last night absolutely certain that he is to be the next President of the United States. Mrs. Bryan shares with her husband this unshaken confidence. This is not to bo won dered at, for wives easily come to chare the beliefs of their husbands, and moreover the Democratic candidate is a man of dominat ing personality, and it would be strange, indeed, if Mrs. Bryan did not share her husband's confidence. This confidence between Mr. Brj-an and his wife was shown in a most convincing way last week. Columns might be printed to prove that Mr. Bryan was convinced in his own mind that he was waging a losing fight, but they would carry no weight com pared with the evidence afforded by the lit tle incident In question. This incident took place Wednesday night on a Monon train in w hich was Mr. Bryan's private car. Mr. Bryan was on his way to Chicago, to fight the final battle of the campaign. He had before him several days of almost continuous speaking, and an or deal that would daunt many veteran politi cians. His managers and lieutenants were deep in their plans for the Chicago visit, and all was bustle and activity in his party. It came dinner time and Mr. Bryan and Mrs. Bryan welcomed the brief respite from politics. They were seated opposite each other at the little table in their car. They forgot their surroundings and became ob livious to the presence of the professional politicians in the car with them. For the time being they were back in their own home in Lincoln, Neb., and talked as freely of the future as though they had no lis teners. Like a young couple setting up house keeping for the first time. Mr. and Mrs. Bryan talked over what they regarded as their future home, the White House. They talked of. tho new furnishings which would be put in, the decorations most appropriate for the walls, and of the internal arrange ments most suited for their own conven ience and style of living. Mrs. Bryan spoke of the little details of domestic economy, und the entertainments they would give on state occasions. The two mapptd out their social life for the next four years, and were as happy and unconscious of Uielr surroundings as a young coupK on their honeymoon. But the little respite nly lasted for a few minutes and Mr. Bryan was called Into consultation coRccrning iiis last throe days tour of Chicago. "I wish all of us were as sure of his election as Mr. Itryan Is." said the ioIIti cian who related the incident. "I felt kind of sorry for a, minute when 1 heard thos-e two talking; but tlun it came to me that it can't be helped. The paiers may print all kind of stories that Rryan in private has given up the fight and I 'd' iondent over the result, but they are not so. Heil never give up hope until the last vote is counted. And if he should be elected, he'll take It as u matter of course, without the least surprise, for through the entire campaign he has never for tux Instant had a moment'!

Bryan and his wife Is one of the tragedies of the campaign of VMJ0." Marder That AVHI Xot Out. New York livening Post. There was printed in our columns last evening a li?t of some sixty unexplained murders committed since Nov. 1. 1S, In this city. In each instance the police have been unable, after weeks and months of search, to tell anything about the crim inals. It would hardly peem possible to obtain more conclusive evidence as to the deterioration of the force once known as "the linest." Even in the days when the brutal Inspector Williams was one of the lights of the force, reliance was placed upon Inspector Byrnes's detectives to keep down the worst crimes. Now the corrup tion has gone fo far as to have sapped the efficiency of the detective branch of the force. A striking example of this was given yesterday, when the police board X-romoted to the rank of detective sergeant a patrolman against whom many charges f f assault have been made, and who has repeatedly been scored by Police Court magistrates for Inefficiency. Ability to handle mobs and crowds Is now about the only thing for which the police can , be Riven credit. Even this efficiency cannot last under existing conditions, and the time surely cannot be far off when the citizens will Insist upon a radical reform. If only tc protect themselves and their property lrom frequent homicides and outrages. o Entangling Alliance. Omaha Bee. Secretary Hay shies a little bit at becom ing a party to the German-English agree ment regarding China. Our government, cheeriully accepts the doctrine of the open door, but when it comes to becoming a party to a written agreement which might bind It to act in concert with Europe on & question of a division of China it prefers to be in a position to act independently. In other words, even though the object sought may be in harmony with the desires ot this country, it does not propose to enter Into a European alliance. Manelrd ly ft Holler Explosion.

MACHINE TYPESETTERS 5a Id to He Hard cm Operators. The work of a typesetter In a modern printing office U very exacting, particu larly if he runs a linotype or typesetting machine. It requires the closest atten tion and rapid and sympathetic action of both brain and hand. Thi3 machine works much like a typewriter. Such worker fed on ordinary food give up because of nervous prostration, some in a short time, and Fome are able to stand it longer. One of these workers says: "I have been at the linotype three years. It has made a great change in my once robust health. About three months ago, after long expecting it, I completely collapsed, from indigestion and extreme nervous r.ess. The dally physic I had not dared to omit for years, now and then, refused relief and a physician was consulted. "Change of occupation and diet, read th prescription, 'advise eating Grape-Nuts food twice daily.' I had often et up the advertisements of the Postum Cereal Com pany, but somehow printers are apt to think advertisements arc not Intended for them to make use of. I could not well change my occupation, but did change tho diet. 'Since then have used Graic-N uts. both at breakfast and supper, daily. The results are truly remarkable. The tirrt inrceptlble change was in the matter of digestion. It has loen six weeks j-ince 1 have hud to swallow art aperient of any kind.
