That is the Word Used by Col.
To Express llis Estimate of the
Great Demonstration
In Honor of His Visit to New
York City.
Cheering Thousands Greet Him
at Every Point.
Principal Address Made at Madi
son Square Garden.
New York, Oct. 17. William J. Bryan
arrived In this city at 2:55 o'clock yes
terday. His reception was an emphatic
ovation. As the train steamed into the
annex of the Grand Central station that
part of the immense building was
thronged with a multitude.
Mr. Bryan was driven to the Hoffman
house in an open carriage in which he
at next to Richard Croker. and with
uncovered head bowed and smiled to
the thousands who cheered him.
About 2 o'clock Captain Price at the
Grand Central station began to take ac
tive measures to open a passage way
for the Tammany hall reception com
mittee to the station.
At 2:35 o'clock a loud cheer went up
and the open carriage containing the
Tammany hall reception committee rode
to the annex. William R. Hearst led the
way, followed by Richard Croker, O. H.
P. Belmont, president of the borough,
James J. Coogan, James Shevlin, Lewis
Nixon, Lawrence Delmour and about a
dozen others. Three cheers for Croker
were given.
As the time approached for the ar
rival of the train the reception commit
tee started to move further and further
along- the track. At this point the po
lice lines were made ineffectual by a
regular football rush. While the re
ception committee was waiting, every
possible inch of space on stairs, at win
dows, platforms and on the big iron
bridges crossing the station was occu
pied. The narrow passageway along
the tracks was a mass of people when
the engine of the Bryan train blew its
warning whistle. Then came the mad
scramble to reach the rear car of the
train in which Mr. Bryan was supposed
to be. Mr. Croker, Mr. Hearst and the
other members of the reception commit
tee tried, to walk in a dignified manner
toward the train to greet the presiden
tial candidate, but the crowd was too
great. They were pushed and shoved
and hustled along until they had almost
to break into a run before they could
Fwing themselves on to the rear plat
form and give Colonel Bryan greeting.
Meanwhile the crowd had worked it
self up to what it considered a proper
degree of enthusiasm. It cheered and
hallooed as Mr. Bryan stepped out on the
platform. Then escorted by Richard
Croker and the committee, he began the
Journey toward the street. A number of
people grasped Mr. Bryan's hands. The
candidate smiled good naturediy through
!t all. in spite of the fact that both he
and Mr. Croker were being rather rough
ly jostled about. As he entered the open
carriage and took his seat. Mr. Bryan
took off his hat and smiled and bowed
on every side. Richard Croker sat next
to him, while Mr. Hearst and Mr. Shev
lin occupied the other two seats in the
Mr. Bryan reached the Hoffman house
at 3:20 p. m. All the way down Fifth
avenue he was cheered by the crowds
that lined the thoroughfare. Mr. Bryan
at once went to his rooms. A few min
utes later he received a delegation from
St. Matthew's Lutheran church, North
Fifth street, Brooklyn. Rev. Augustus
Sinners, the pastor, presented him with
a gold-headeu cane, which had been won
by Mr. Bryan in receiving the largest
number of votes at a fair held by the
church. He made a speech of thanks,
and then retired to rest before the ban
quet. For hours before the time set for the

Testimonials are good things and we
are always glad to get them, but they
don't make our remedy any better.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are good
because they do good because they cure.
Testimonials simply prove that the
tablets have helped other people, but it's
yourself you are most interested in, and
w hether they will cure you is the ques
tion. It is very easy to find out try them.
A full package costs but fifty cents at
your druggist's. They are worth that
if they only help you a little bit. The
chance is worth taking at the price.
We put it on that basis because you,
don't know about the tablets. If you
knew as much about them as we do you
would have complete confidence; this
advertising would be unnecessary. We
have seen them cure the worst cases of
stomach trouble. Cases of long standing
and obstinancy. cases that other medi
cines and even high priced doctors had
failed to subdue.
Here are some testimonials. If you
care to read them we have thousands of

braska, writes: For six years I have
been troubled with dyspepsia. Last fall
1 became very much alarmed at some
symptoms of heart trouble and came to
believe there was a sympathetic relation
between the two diseases, or rather, that
the stomach trouble was the cause of the
heart disturbance. I hit upon Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets for a remedy and In
vested a dollar and a half for three boxes
which lasted me three months and I can
eat any kind of food I want and have a
good vigorous appetite. Although I am
eeventy-seven years old, I now feel per
fectly well and without being requested
by anyone I make this statement as a
compliment to the ,virtues of Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets.
Mrs. Lydia Bartram, of Assyria
Mich., writes: I have suffered from
stomach trouble for ten years and five
different doctors gave me only tem
porary relief. A Mr. E. R. Page advised
me to try Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets and
four boxes did me more permanent ben

I have ever taken.
We honestly believe Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets are the best medicine ever made
for the cure of stomach troubles.
Don't mistake our meaning. We don't
claim them to cure anything but dys

one thing is the cause the starting point

opening of the doors, 6:30, Madison
Square Garden, where Mr. Bryan and
the head of the state Democratic ticket,
John B. Stanchfield, spoke, was besieged
by crowds.
At 5:30 o'clock to the minute the sound
of exploding bombs outside the garden
announced the opening of the doors. In
stantlv there was a erreat rush by the
people from the Madison avenue hallway
and from the Xwenty-sixtn street en
trance, which accoraing to police ar
rangements were to be kept clear1 for
ticket holders. In the first rush were a
few women who got near tne speaKer
stand. 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
n.irt of the galleries black witn people.
The rush was then over, but there came
a steady stream through the principal
doors and all empty eeata were soon
The crowd did not appear at first to
be demonstrative. When the lignts were
all turned on there came a brief cheer.
The big semi-circular electrical display

traits of the two Democratic candidates,

cratic watchword. credited to Mr. Croker,
"We wish to remain free people," in
great letters of light. Then the band
struck up a national air and as the peo
ple recognized "Yankee Doodle" they got
up in their seats with uncovered neaas,
and as thev waved thousands of small
American flags, shouted out the words
of the song.
The arrival of prominent Tammany
men before the opening of the meeting
brought out the first strong applause of
the evening. As 7 o'clock approached
the hour which Mr. Bryan was expected
to arrive the crowd began to warm up.
The garden was jammed. The police
kept the aisles fairly well cleared, and
back of the gallery seats there was not
an inch of available space.
Mr. Bryan entered the garden at 7:15
o'clock. As the face of Mr. Croker, be
hind which appeared Mr. Bryan's, was
seen the crowd burst forth in one great
prolonged yell. Every one stood tip toe
on his seat and the garden was a sea of
waving flags. As Mr. Bryan, escorted
by Mr. Croker, mounted the speaker's
stand, the cheering was continuous.
Just behind the two as they mounted
the platform. Mayor Van Wyck escorted
Edward M. Shepard, who acted as
chairman of the meeting. The cheering
continued, now dying down, now being
renewed with increased vigor. It con
tinued for five minutes, - not abating
when . Mr. Bryan, rose to his feet ana
raised his hands.
Mr. Croker pulled him back into his
seat. The cheering went on. Mr. Croker
rose, hesitated a moment then raised his
hand for silence. Instead of ceasing tne
crowd broke forth louder than ever. Do
what he could Mr. Croker could not
silence the crowd. After nearly fifteen
minutes of cheering the applause began
to decrease. Mingled cheers and hisses.
the latter for silence, lasted a minute
longer. A call for three c.heer3 for "Our
next president," brought out a final
cheer, but an effort to repeat it w
drowned in cries of "Put him out."
When quiet was restored Mr. croKer
rose, took Mr. Shepard by the hand and
introduced him to the audience as chair
man of the meeting. Before Mr. Shepard
could get into the subject of "imperial
ism," to which most of his address was
devoted, the crowd got so impatient to
hear Mr. Bryan that Mr. Shepard couia
nrvt nrnopcil TTe suddenly stopped and
introduced President Guggenheimer, of
the council, who offered the tormai reso
lutions of the evening.
The resolutions were cheered, though
they could not be heard for the shouts
for Brvan. and Mr. Shepard at once in
troduced the latter in short sentences.
MrRrvan stepped to the railing above
the stand as the throng broke out m
fresh cheers. Mr. Bryan began .by re
ferring to the vast audience before him
and said that it indicated an interest
in the campaign which must be gratify
ing to all who realized the importance
of the questions involved, jne ueaai
that he was not vain enough to accept
the enthusiasm manifested as a person
al tribute to himself, because, he said,
the individual counts for nothing ex
cept that he may be the instrument used
by the people to carry out their own
will." He immediately entered upon a
defense Of the Democratic cause and
said: .
"To say that the people gathered here
who support our cause are the enemies
of honest wealth is a slander which
could not be uttered "without the one
who uttered it knew it to be false. We
are not opposed to that wealth, which
comes as the reward of honest toil and
is enjoyed by those who give to society
something in return for that which so
ciety throws upon them. The Democrat
ic party today is not only not the enemy
of honest wealth, but the Democratic
party of today is the best friend of that
wealth that represents ability of muscle
or of mind employed in its accumula
tion." Mr. Bryan went on to say that the
party draws the line between honest
wealth and predatory wealth, "between
that wealth which is a just compensa
tion for services rendered and that
wealth which simply measures the ad
vantages which some citizen has taken
over many citizens."
He declared that no honest industry,
no honest occupation, no honest man
need fear the success of the Democratic
party. The Democratic party, he said,
"showed its honesty by stating what it
believed and telling the people what it
will do."
He asked for a comparison of the
Democratic platform with the Republi
can party platform, and expressed con
fidence that any honest man making
such comparison must be convinced of
the sincerity of the Democratic declara
tion and the hypocrisy of the Republi
can platform.
Taking up the Republican declaration
of principles Mr. Bryan said that the
party is not prepared today to make a
fight on a question before the country.
"And," he continued, "if you want proof
let me remind you that the Republican
party today .instead of presenting any
great principle and defending it, is pre
senting an appeal to every class of peo
ple supposed to be approachable in any
directions. "He then, went on to enumer
ate the various classes to which he said
the Republicans were making specious
appeals and he included in the list th?
farmer, the laborer, etc. "It gives the
laborer," he said, "the assurance he will
have a full dinner pail, and then it as
sures him that there will be a large army
to make him satisfied with his full din
ner pail."
He declared that the prosperity of
which the Republican party boasts is a
different thing in different localities. In
the east, he said, they tell vou how pros
perous the farmer of the west is. and In
the west you hear of the high wages and
general employment of the laboring man
throughout the east.
In this connection Mr. Bryan related
the report of his own prosperity as a
farmer and proceeded to show that the
report was a gross exaegeratien. "It."
he said, "I am a sample of what is go
ing on the farm I have some idea of what
is taking place there."
Referring further to the Republican
claim of prosperity. Mr. Brvan said he
was willing to admit that the army con
tractors and the trust magnates might
be prosperous. "A man who gets Foecial
privileges at the hands of the government
can prosper under Republican admi-is ra
tion," he said, "but I deny that the
jvealtn producers of this country enjoy
their share of the government's ' pro
auctions." At this point there were cries of "Han
na, Manna." Mr. Bryan merely responded I
by asking his audience not to trifle with
a ETeat namt
He referred to the position of Governor
Roosevelt and Senator Hanna on the sub
ject of trusts, and the reference in both
msia-nces was met with groans and hisses.
"Mr. Hanna says there are no trusts,"
Mr. Bryan went on. "Are you going to
send a man out to hunt the trusts who
Knows wnere every trust treasurer is, bu
says there are nn tmsoia?"
In response to the last interrogation a
voice from the audience responded: "We
will send you."
, Mr- Bryan again quoted from President
ivicciimey s inaugural address on the sub
ject of trusts and charter! that the Trei.
dent had neither enforced the existing an-
t.-iiuoi. laws nor recommenaea new or.ei.
His attorney eeneral. he said, rtrnws h;

oppress the people. Mr. Bryan referred
to the ice trust, declaring that apparently
this was the only trust of which the Re
publicans had any knowledge. "If a Re
publican tells you," he said, "that the ice
trust is hurting the people, you tell them
that you have so much confidence in the
Republican governor that you know he
wouid not db out west making speeches
if the people were suffering from the ice
This remark was received with (hpra
Mr. Bryan expressed the conviction that
we are approacning "a period of industrial
despotism, when a few men will control
each great branch of industry, when every
person who buys finished products will
buy at a trust price, when every person
who furnishes raw material will furnish
it at a trust price and when every man
who works for wages will work for the
wages nxea oy a trust."
Such a Condition as this mennf be atr1
serfdom for the. people, for a government
of the people, by the people and for the
people was impossible under the reign of
the trusts.
Mr. Bryan said that he was not satisfied
to prevent extortion, but that he would
make it impossible for a private monopoly
to exist in the United Stsites. The decla
ration was met with cheers and cries of

New York. Oct. 17. The crowd that
surged about the open air stand at Madi
son avenue and Twenty-fourth street,
crushing the weak and almost smother
ing those who were so tightlv packed in
that the air, whick reeked with the fumes
of Greek fire, could not reach theni, may
have numbered 20.000, and there was not
one in the crowd who cared to hear any
one else but Mr. Bryan. It was shortly
after 9 o'clock when the cavalcade head
ing the Bryan party rode down Madison
avenn; to the stand. The carriages could
not drive within fifty feet of it and Mr.
Bryan, Mr. Croker, Mr. Hearst and James
tonevnn, wno were in tne carriages,
walked to the stand. The ovation to the
candidate was deafeningly loud and pro
longed. After shaking hands with Mr.
Kellar and those on the stand who could
stretch their hands to him Mr. Bryan
stood facing the crowd in front of the
stand. He uncovered his head, but the
bombs were exploding in the air over
head and the fire from one almost struck
him. Mr. Bryan drew away to avoid it.
The band was still playing "Hail to the
Chief," when Mr. Bryan outstretched his
hand to the audience to command quiet.
He said.
"Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen:
I have been talking in doors until I am
warm and I am afraid to expose myself
in the open air. You can read in the
morning papers what I have said, but I
have said enough and you have read
enough to know the issues and mv onin-

Mr. Croker took his arm and led him to

"Wonderful, wondertul." Mr. Rrran
Then the party after hand shaking all
around left the stand and trot into the
carriages. The trip to Tammany hall was
made through streets lined with cheering

Passenger Rate War is On and
No End In Sight.
Northwestern Cuts Are General
Now and It Looks Like
Transcontinental Association
Has a Big Job on Its Hands
To Bring Roads Into Line and
Stop Slashing.
Western railroads are well advanced
into a passenger traffic war that has
been brewing for some time and un
dergoing a gradual progression as the
days went by. Executive officials worked
on the problem in Chicago for a long
time and finally evolved the Transconti
nental Passenger association, which i3
expected to repair the mischief, but just
how that is going to be done is another
Cheap rate excursions have been at
the bottom of the -whole business, and
the "settlers' rates" of the Great North
ern and Northern Pacific get the lion's
share of the blame. These are said to
have been making more or less trouble
for a year or more. From Chicago and
St. Paul the demoralization in rates
have worked their way down to the
Missouri river gateway, and nobody
knows where the cutting is going to
The Burlington opened up the Mis
souri river gateway with competitive
rates, and all Kansas City lines having
northwestern connections promptly met
the reductions. The Union Pacific, Mis
souri Pacific and Rock Island roads,
from their respective headquarters, have
received instructions authorizing the
sale of tickets at the cut rate of $23 one
way to Montana points and $40 for round
trip; $28 one way and $45 round trip to
Portland and Puget Sound points.
This means that Topeka and interme
diate points to the northwest have the
advantage of the low rates also.
One new and significant point In the
meeting of the rate is contained in the
announcement of General Passenger
Agent Sebastian of the Rock Island
This road has gone a stride further, and
authorizes the sale of cheap tickets on
every Tuesday from February 12 to
April 30, 1901, in addition to the time
specified by the other roads, which is
until November 27.
It will be in order for the other roads
to meet this extension in time in the
sales of excursion tickets, which may
effect all classes of travel from the Mis
souri river gateway to the northwest,
unless some adjustment is made. The
outlook is that the next class of business
at which the slashers will take a cut is
the California travel. Though there is
the strong opposition of the Santa Fe
to such a move, it would seem to follow
as the inevitable consequence of what
has gone before. The steps have all been
gradual, and California is the next log
ically and geograprically. On this point
a passenger official of one of the inter
ested roads in Topeka said:
"I know it is strongly opposed, but
things are working for a low rate into
California, it seems to me. By going by
way of Portland, now, with this cheap
rate, the round trip can be made for
$69, when the regular fare is $90. These
previous cuts have followed one another
by the various roads, being met on the
defensive to save their business. It
started with the northern lines. They
stay out of the Transcontinental Asso
ciation, and for protection the associa
tion roads have to meet their cuts, it
has extended so far now as to affect all
the western territory; that is why I
think that California business will be
brought into the mess. Was the Trans
continental association formed to stop
this demoralization of rates? I suppose
so; and Mr. Charlton has a big job on
his hands, I'll agree."
Competitors Between Common Points
Under Different Jurisdictions.
The Kansas City Southern railroad
has secured an injunction in the federal
courts restraining the railroad commis
sion of Arkansas from interfering witn
the railroad rates on business going
from a point in Arkansas to another point
in the same state, but which passes out
side of the boundary of the state en
route. It will be remembered that for a
considerable distance this road runs in
the Indian Territory just west of the
western boundary of Arkansas, leaving
the state about 2o miles south or tne
northern boundary and re-entering it
about 75 miles north of the southern
boundary. It is claimed by the railroad
that because of this condition the state
railroad commission has no authority to
interfere even on business which has
both its origin and destination within
the state, but which passes out of the
state in transit. It will be interesting
to watch the decision in this case.
A similar condition is presented in
New York state.where some of the roads
operating between Buffalo and New
York go outside of the state while others
remain wholly within its borders. If the
contention of the Kansas City Southern
shall be sustained an anomaly will be
presented of two roads running between
the same points and competing directly
for the same business, subject to differ
ent legislative regulation, the one being
w-ithin the jurisdiction of the state auth
orities and the other of the interstate.
says the Railway Review. As a matter
of fact,- interstate and intrastate busi
ness are so related as to make it prac
tically impossible to regulate one with
out interfering with the other. Given,
for illustration., the power to the Mis
souri railroad commission to make rates
and it would -absolutely control the
rates throughout the entire western
This is the fourth meeting for tonight
that I have spoken at. It concludes the

forget that he is their servant, acting for
them as their representative. He is the in
strument bv which they accomDlish their

Mr. Brvan then branched off on to the
subject of "imperialism," and went into it
tnorougniy. He wound up by saying:
"We have no money with which to buy
votes, no trust magnates to intimid tie.
We leave the result to you and appeal
to the conscience of the oeonle. Tf Rxvrv

doubt as to the result. The majority in

Intended to Supplant Objectionable
Doubleheaders It is Said.
Four mammoth Mogul engines, from
the Baldwin works at Pittsburg, Pa.,
passed through Ottawa the other day
over the Santa Fe, destined for the Port
Arthur route. They are of the "double
compound" type, having both high and
low pressure, and are known as 12
wheelers. Their weight, as they stand
is 115 tons each; equipped for work 140
tons. They cost $15,600 each.
These big engines, which are being
supplied rapidly to the trunk lines, are
intended to supplant the "double head
ers" that are so objectionable. To per
mit of their use heavier rails are needed,
and it is necessary to move platforms
back from the track, to strengthen the
bridges, etc. On account of their weight
it was necessary to bring them out of
Chicago and round this way on the San
ta Fe.

It is estimated that the area available
for settlement will cut up into 10,000

this land is only fit for grazing, the bulk
of it is available for the plow. The

multiplying, in this manner, the waste
products; at the same time it Is the
vehicle for the removal of these same
products from the blood, and gives rise
to increase of appetite, which, ia turn,
will provide fresh nutriment.
A certain regular amount of pure wa
ter must be taken into the body each
day in order to remove useless matter,
or it will soon obstruct the free working
order of the system. Natural laws can
not be disregarded without producing
disease in some form. "That tired feel
ing," so often experienced on first aris
ing in the morning, might in almost ev
ery case be prevented by drinking, slow
ly, a glass of Tater, either hot or cold,
just before retiring. This removes the
large secretions of waste products that
cause this feeling of weakness and lassi
Besides carrying off poisonous matter
from the system, the human body, when
in health, must maintain the proper
weight in water which should form two
thirds of the whole body. It enters into
every part, filling out every tissue; giv
ing the natural, healthful roundness to
the muscles, the brightness to the eyes
and clearness and alertness to the brain.
Water also regulates the temperature of
the body by perspiration.
The first great essential is that wa
ter must be pure, free from odor
or unpleasant taste when used for cook
The quantity of water required dally
must be regulated to a great extent by
the loss of this fluid through natural
channels, the lungs, skin and kidneys.
The exercise performed by the body and
temperature and the humidity of the
surrounding atmosphere.
The class of foods consumed also pov
ern the quantity of water necessary. The
quantity and dryness of the solid foods
must determine how much liquid is
needed to keep the system up to the nor
mal standardd of health.
It is estimated that the body in health
requires from three to five pints of water
daily, or some beverage that is almost
entirely composed of water.
Water enters into combination with
all foods, and in the fruits and green and
succulent vegetables we obtain a consid
erable amount.but not more than enough
for the perfect digestion of the solid
substances they are combined with, as
both vegetable and fruit contain cellu

digested and of little food value, and
harmful to the system if not removed
by this natural agent. A large percent
age is taken into the body in various
foods and especially In combination w ith
our beverages; but pure, uncooked wa
ter has very important solvent properties
that are of great help in the digestion
of our foods, and one should be careful,
therefore, to supply the demand with an
adequate amount.
A healthy organism will Indicate its
needs by thirst that is immediately sat
isfied by a cooling, refreshing drink of
pure water. If fountains of pure drink
ing water were as numerous and attrac
tive as are the myriad saloons in our
cities, the latter might not be so general
ly patronized. Thirst is inexorable, and
the thirsty man or woman who would
hail with delight a sparkling glass of
nature's own beverage must exercise
considerable of their spirit of martyr
dom or resort to the near-by saloon or
soda fountain. All for the want of little
things such as these, how many battles
may be fought and lost.
This drink is not a beverage In any
sense. While it may have certain re
freshing qualities as a drink, it is a
solid food and purely nourishing, con
taining only sufficient amount of water
for its own perfect digestion, and which
can not be reckoned on for any other
purpose in the system. When milk is
freely partaken of care must be exer
cised that the amount of other solid
foods be proportionately lessened, or the
system will be overloaded.
In these we have very valuable food
combinations, especially in the good
American brands, as they are not adul
terated, as are most of the importations.
While cocoa contains an alkaloid close
ly related to caffein in coffee, its gen
eral character differs widely from coffee
or tea, and it hardly deserves to be
classed simply as a beverage, as it near
ly approaches milk in its composition a3
a complete food. While chocolate, on ac
count of the large amount of fat con
tained, is too heavy for persons of deli
cate digestion and young children, we
have the more delicate preparation of
breakfast cocoa, that contains all the
other nutritious elements, but with most
of the fat eliminated.' In this article of
food we have albuminous substances,
starch and phosphates, making clear to
the housewife the fact that in these
preparations she has both meat and
drink, which explains the reason why
she should not serve these two beverages
with other heavy, rich dishes, contain
ing a large amount of same elements.
Chocolate and cocoa are essentially bev
erages for the lightest and daintiest re
pasts, and the woman who eats her
lunch alone and sparingly will be wise
to substitute it with vegetable or fruit
salads and white bread and butter, for
the proverbial cup of tea.
These popular beverages though wide
ly different in taste and appearance, have
one feature in common with cocoa, and
in fact with all beverages of this class
in general. The alkaloid which Is the
nerve stimulating principle is the same,
or presumably so, in all. In cocoa, it is
theobromin, in coffee caffein, and thein
in tea. To these stimulating effects no
doubt are due our liking for these bev
erages. That the result differs in effect
upon the system is no doubt due to the
different principles and essential oils
they contain, and also in mode of prepa
ration. Coffee and tea are stimulating
beverages that have no food value other
than to supply liquid to the body and
prevent waste of tissue. While cocoa
and chocolate more nearly approach i
