T. at Another Audience Waits Two Hours For His Coming. Rochester, N. Y., Oct. 20. William J. Bryan reached this city at 9:15 last night and made two speeches here. The first of these was made from a balcony in front of the Powers House and the second in Fitzhugh. hail. Preceding the speeches there was a street parade from the New York Central station to the center of the city and it waa one of the most elaborate sea well as one of the most enthusiastic demonstrations that have yet been made in honor of the Democratic candidate. He was escorted by bands and marching clubs and the broad streets of the city were so crowd ed with people that it was extremely difficult for the police to force a way for him. Mr. Bryan's carriage was drawn by four horses. Once during the march the leading span of horses took fright at the fireworks and turned quickly. It look ed for a moment as if they would upset the vehicle. The frightened animals were however, quickly caught by a doz en members of the nearest marching club and again turned in the right di rection. Mr. Bryan retained his seat in the carriage and did not show fright. Mr. Bryan addressed a sea of human beings in his opening meeting. They re ceived him with loud cheers and listen ed as well as such a multitude could for about 20 minutes, during which time Mr. Rryan presented the issues of the cam paign. It was 10 o'clock before he reached Fitzhugh hall. There he met a densely packed audience which had waited two hours for his coming. He was received with prolonged cheers and received close attention and much ap plause from start to finish. The speech was a presentation of the questions of the campaign and Mr. Bry an said he believed that when these questions were as well understood in the east as they are in the west the Demo cratic contention would ba as popular here as there. Mr. Bryan spoke for an hour and twenty-five minutes, concluding his speech at 11:30 o'clock. The entire audi ence remained until the end. Mr. Bryan yesterday experienced his second encounter of the campaign with college students. It occurred at Ithaca, and the students were from Cornell uni versity. The incident was not so excit ing as that at Ann Arbor, Mich., for the reason that the young men were not so persistent and did not work in such un ison, but there was one feature of inter est which was not noticeable at Ann Arbor. This was the participation of young women in the affair. A hundred or more members of the opposite sex were stationed at windows of the high school, just back and over the stage from which Mr. Bryan spoke, and they disturbed the proceedings to as great an extent as they could by lowering posters bearing pictures of President McKinley so as to attract the attention of the crowd. The young men who were below responded to this signal with cries and yells, and they also asked numerous questions while the speech was in progress. Evidently, too, a quite large per cent, of the students were in sympathy with Mr. Bryan, and some of them shouted lustily for him when his replies to the questions of their fellows were especially to their liking. Mr. Bryan was generally voted to have met the occasion successfully and that he did so was evidenced by the fact that the interruptions grew fewer and farther apart as the speech proceeded and at last ceased altogether. The day was rendered interesting by a spirited meeting at Auburn, the home during his lifetime of Secretary Seward, and by Mr. Bryan's pointed reference in his speech there to the manager of an important manufacturing enterprise lo cated at that point, which he evidently intended should have greater than local application. Speeches were also made during the day at Courtlandt and Bing hamton and at several other smaller points. The day's work closed with a meeting at Rochester late last night. The metings of the day were generally attended and those at Ithaca and Bing hamton were especialy large. Probabiy the Binghamton meeting was the moat enthusiastic meeting of the day. In all instances except at the beginning of the Ithaca meeting close attention was given to the speeches. Mr. Bryan's speech at Cortlandt was addressed almost wholly to the farmers and he expressed the opinion that one person out of a hundred was benefited by Republican policies. He pleaded to his auditors to throw off the yoke of partisanship and assert their" indepen dence. He declared that the farmers were every year owing more and owning less of the wealth they create. At Binghamton where Mr. Bryan had the largest and most enthusiastic audience of the day he took especial notice of the fact that some of the man ufacturing plants of that town were closed, saying: "It is strange to me that it is neces sary for you people to have an empty and silent tannery and match factory in a town to know what a trust means and without doubt it seems that any man with power to think ought to know that industrial monopoly means " the closing of factories, the throwing of men out of employment and the making of slaves out of those who are employed." In response to a question during the Binghamton speech he announced him self as favorable to the election of United States senators by direct vote of the people and in this connection made the following reference to Senator1 Depew: "I think if there is any state in the union that needs that sort of privilege it is New York. When John Quincy Adams became a member of congress he sold all the stock he had in the national bank of that day because he said he did not believe that a man in congress ought to be interested in legislation. I wish you would read that to Chauncey M. Depew and let him resign his position as presi dent of a railroad or senator of the United States. How do you expect that a man will decide on the people's side in a case where he is interested on the other side? Is there any man in this audience who would try a case before a juryman who had an interest in the re sult of the case? Then why is it that you fill your legislatures with men who are interested in legislation, men who repre sent themselves and their big corpora tions instead of tax payers?" THIRD DAY IN NEW YOKE Opened by Mr. Bryan With a Speech at Elmira. Elmira, N. Y., Oct. 20. Mr. Bryan be gan the speech making of the third day of his New York tour at Elmira at 9 o'clock today. He spoke from a stand erected in Wisner park and was greeted by a large audience. Mr. Bryan said: "I am glad I live in a country where no man can b elected unless the people want that policy enforced, for up to this time theRepublieans have not yet denied our right to attend to our business, al though they deny the Filipino the right to attend to his business." Mr. Br van then spoke of the trusts, saying that the Republicans were all ap parently afflicted with far sightedness. Even away up in Minnesota the Repub licans seemed to know all about the ice trust, whose operations were confined entirely to New York and did not affect them, but nothing about the salt trust, the lumber trust, the sugar trust and the numerous other trusts which affect ed their interests directly. Indeed, he said, the Republicans were apparently more worried lest the trust3 should all not get their share than they were con cerning the fate of the people at large, but, he continued, the Republican in terest In the . ice trust was entirely in consistent, for had not Senator Hanna, the Republican party, said there were no trusts? In view of the general Re publican knowledge concerning trusts and Mr. Hanna'a declaration, Mr. Bryan asserted that he had never known a man whose word "amounted to so littleamong his friends as did Mr. Hanna's." "If there is an ice trust," he continued, "then Hanna'a word can not be ac cepted." Discussing the Republican attitude on trusts Mr. Bryan declared that the Re publicans were inconsistent and that they had no remedy for trusts. He said: "They opened the session by creating a money trust and they closed it by prac ticing fraud in their pretended effort to stop other trusts. The amendment to the constitution offered by them was not necessary and its purpose was not to give congress power needed. It was to take away from the states the power they have., so that if the Republicans control the government, the state will be powerless to protect itself against a private monopoly. That was the pur pose of that amendment and when it was defeated the Republicans confessed we did not need it, because they then brought in a bill which. thy said waa intended to protect the people from private monopoly, a bill brought in after the amendment was defeated, showing that they did cot need the amendment and all the Democrats voted for the bill. I believe there was scarcely an opposi tion vote in the house, but when It went to the senate and the Democrats de manded that it be passed at once, the Republicans sent it to the judiciary com mittee and there it Bleeps today." Mr. Bryan then discussed the ques tions of imperialism and the Increase of the army, asserting that what had been done in Porto Rico was the best indi cation as to what would be done in oth er newly acquired islands. Let those who had doubts as to the policy to be pursued read what Governor Pattison had to say concerning the administra tion of Porto Rican affairs. According to that report, "states with more than twice the population of Porto Rico pay their governors less than half the sal ary paid to the governor of that island." "We sent the carpetbaggers there," he said, "and the Porto Ricans have to en dure them." In considering the Philippine question, Mr. Bryan warned his hearers against the complications it would involve us in. Among rUier things in this connection he said: "Whenever we complain of these doc trines, some Republican tries to hide be hind the amendments in the southern states and says: 'What about North Carolina?" If you are worried about North Carolina, why don't you spend your time trying to remedy that trou ble instead of trying to bring in another race question as big as that we now have to solve." Mr. Bryan said that the money which was being expended in the Philippines could be much more profitably utilized in developing the resources of the Uni ted States. He suggested as one means for utilizing of the money the construc tion of reservoirs in the semi-arid re gions of the west for the holding of sur plus water, which would toe said, ma terially increase the agricultural area of that section and add to the wealth of the country at large. "But," he added, "the Republicans would rather waste blood than have wa ter." Corning, N. Y., Oct. 20. Mr. Bryan spoke here for 20 minutes from the rear platform of his car. The railroad yards Ilk iSSw Geronlmo, the Well-Known Bad Indian. The above Is a good picture of old Geronimo, some of whose followers will dance at the Auditorium on Thursday, October 25. Geronimo has made more trouble for the United States army and together with his predecessor, Ghu, committed more murders and destroyed more property in Arizona and New Mexico than any other two chiefs In the history of the country. In 1878 Major T. J. Anderson was traveling by stage from Santa Fe, N. M., to El Paso, and the stage passed Jarnado Del Muerto (the journey of death), a barren desert some ninety miles in extent with but one place where water could be procured. This was at Martin's well, a place in about the middle of the desert. This point was also the stage station and was occupied by a family, a sheep herder or two and the man In charge of the stage horses. The party, which included some prominent Santa Fe officials at that time, took dinner at the station, and with a fresh team of four fine horses started for what is now known as Rincon on the Santa Fe, at the south end of the Jarnado. When a few miles out from the station one of the party looked back and saw the stage station and ranch houSe inflames, and the passengers, some nine or ten in number, wanted to return, but the stage driver, who knew the condi tions, whipped his horses into a dead run and got out of sight of the station as quickly as possible. He said the Apache Indians, who were known to be on the war path, were burning the ranch and murdering the occupants. The passengers did not feel safe until they had left the ranch many miles in the rear. On the return trip the truth was learned. Geronimo with his band of murderers had left the Sanandres reservation, and crossing the Jarnado, had murdered every soul at the well, crossed the Rio Grande, taking refuge in the Magellan mountains, 17a miles from their starting point. Scarcely a ranchman escaped in the entire distance. The army drove them out of the United States, and they took refuge in the almost inaccessible Sierra Madras mountains of Mexico. It cost many lives and more than a million in money to capture Geronimo and his murderous band of Apaches, which was finally accomplished by General Crook. After his capture, Geronimo was sentenced with his followers to thej Dry Tortugas, off the coast of Florida, where they remained until a few years ago, when they were sent to the Comanche Indian reservation in the southwest corner of Oklahoma. were well filled and the national can didate was warmly received. He declar ed that the Republican party was put ting its plea this year on the lowest plane that a political campaign had ever been made upon. In support of this statement, he said they were all things to all men; they were making specious pleas to all classes and were meeting no arguments. He discussed the army and territorial expansion in practically the same terms as in previous speeches. Wrhile Mr. Bryan was talking of the trusts, some one asked about the silver trust. Mr. Bryan replied: "There is no silver trust, but If there were and it would contribute enough to the Republican campaign fund the Re publican party would be for silver.' SIDETRACKED. Col. Bryan Sends 16 to 1 to the Bear. ; In a Letter Accepting Lincoln ltepublican Nomination. Rochester, N. Y., Oct. 20. The follow ing letter accepting the nomination of the Silver Republicans waa mailed to day by Mr. Bryan: Samuel W. Hopkins, chairman and others, members of the notification com mittee, of the Silver Lincoln Republican party: Gentlemen: I am in receipt of your letter formally notifying me of my nom ination for the presidency by the Silver Lincoln Republican national convention held at Kansas City, July 4, last. In accepting the nomination I beg to ex press my hearty appreciation of the support given our ticket by the mem bers of your party in the campaign of 1S96, and of the fidelity shown by them during the four years which have snce elapsed. The evidence of confidence and good will manifested anew at the last national convention places me under re newed obligations. There is a consist ency about the human mind which leads an individual to apply old principles to new conditions and I was therefore not surprised to find that those who left the Republican party in 1896 on the money question are now opposed to it on the trust question, which has increased in importance since 1896, and upon mili tarism and imperialism, the' new ques tions which the Republican party has forced upon the public within the last two years. Your platform, of which you enclose a copy in its declaration is so similar to the Democratic platform adopted at Kansas City that it is not necessary for me to take up the plank3 in detail. I enclose the following docu ments and make them a part of this let ter: First My speech at Indianapolis, in reply to the Democratic notification committee, dealing with imperialism, militarism and the resolution express ing sympathy for the Boers. Second My letter formally accepting the Democratic nomination, covering other planks of the platform. Third My speech accepting the Popu list nomination, dealing with those is sues upon which the Democrats and Populists occupy common grounds. Fourth My speech delivered at St. Louis the 15th of September, on the trust question. These documents have already been widely published in the press of the country and the members of your party are fully informed in regard to my views on the questions covered. In 1896, the money question was the question of paramount importance, but the Republican party by its disregard of the principles of our republic and by its advocacy of policies repugnant to the doctrine of self-government, has left us no choice but to summon all lovers o the Declaration of Independence to the defense of that sacred document and the constitution framed in accordance with it. In your letter you quote several ap propriate extracts from Lincoln's speech es. I find in a speech by Lincoln In 1858 a defense of the Declaration of In dependence, accompanied by a fervent and patriotic appeal to his countrymen not to abandon the principles therein enunciated. It is so applicable to the present time and so in harmony with the references you have made to Lin coln's words that 1 quote the following extract: "Now, my countrymen, if you have been taught doctrines conflicting with the great landmarks of the Decla ration of Independence; if you have lis tened to suggestions which would take away from its grandeur and mutilate the fair symmitery of its proportions; if you have been inclined to believe that all men are not created equal in those in alienable rights enumerated by our chart of liberty, let me entreat you to come back. Return to the fountain whose wa ters spring close by the blood of the revolution. Think nothing of me; take no thought for the political fate of any man whomsoever, but come to back to the truths that are in the Declaration of Independence. You may do anything with me you choose, if you will but heed these sacred principles. You may not only defeat me for the senate, but you may take me and put me to deaUi. While pretending no indifference to earthly honors, I do claim to be actuated in this contest by something higher than an anxiety for office. I charge you to drop every paltry and insignificant thought for any man's success. It is nothing. I am nothing; Judge Douglas is nothing. But don't destroy that immortal emblem of humanity the Declaration of Ameri can Independence." How harsh the contrast between the lofty sentiments expressed by Lincoln and the sordid, mercenary appeal now made to the people of the Republican party! How great the chasm between the statesmanship which would sacrifice life itself in defense of that immortal docu ment which had been the model of re publics ever since it was promulgated, and the commercialism which would sacrifice every noble and holy purpose in pursuit of new markets and would en dorse the doctrine that trade can be pur chased with human blood a doctrine advanced by those who want to give syndicates a chance to exploit distant colonies! In response to the hope which you ex press, permit me to assure you that any political obligations are due entirely to the plain people, who ask no special privileges at the hands of the govern ment, but demand only equality of rights and an opportunity to enjoy life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness under the flag of a republic. These people, the na tion's wealth producers in time of peace and the nation's warriors in time of war, have already done for me more than I can ever repay. Whether I am elected or not, it shall be my ambition to protect their rights and advance their interests by every mean within my power. Very truly yours. WILLIAM J. BRYAN. RIDGLETS FIND. Populist State Chairman An nounces His Discovery. Finds a Letter Bearing on the Trust Question. The Kansas Populist committee claims to have discovered absolute proof that the managers and promoters of the Republican campaign in nation and state are in a conspiracy to defend and propagate the evil of trusts. "As proof of this," said Chairman Ridgley, "I cite the fact that the Re publican national committee is distri buting campaign literature distinctive ly written as a defense of these monopo lies and their methods I submit here with a letter by the National Publishing company, who are publishing a pamph let defending the trusts. These publish ers have arranged with the national Re publican committee to distribute their pamphlet. In proof of this, I submit here a copy of a letter which was sent to a certain great corporation, soliciting funds to pay for their pamphlet which they state is, by agreement, to be dis tributed by the national Republican committee. Their letter dated Septem ber 29, 1900, reads as follows: September 29, 1900. "Dear Sir: Referring to our several letters of recent date regarding 'The Other Side,' we found many of the large industrials did not care to distribute the book directly but were anxious' to sup port the work. To overcome this diffi culty we arranged with the Republican national committeetohave it distribute the books in such manner-and in such places as to insure the best results be ing accomplished. Used in this way the books cost $250 per thousand. "We now ask your co-operation in the movement to the extent of subscribing for a few thousand copies to be used by the committee. An acknowledgment from the committee will be sent to you for the number of books you contribute Derore payment need be made. "This matter being of the greatest Im portance to all industrial corporations, and the time being limited, we are obliged to ask the favor of your prompt response. Yours very truly, "NATIONAL PUBLISHING CO., "C. H. Nicoll, General Manager." "In response to this letter," continues Mr. Ridgley, "the corporation addressed subscribed for a number of copies of the pamphlet, the title of which is "The Other Side." In proof of this I submit copy of the receipt of the Republican nationl committee, which reads as fol lows: " 'New York, October 9, 1900.

"Thus we have the proof that the Re publican national committee is using its utmost power to defend these trust mo nopolies. .The book referred to in ita preface reads as follows: " It discusses the rise and develop ment of the trust idea out of natural conditions that insure Its permanence and its value as a factor in industrial progress, and.aims to bring into stronger light the advantages that accrue to the public, the workingman and the investor from this readjustment of capital.' "One of the distinctive features of the present campaign is the vacillating at titude of the Republican party on this one of the chief issues involved in the present election that of corporation mo nopolies, commonly termed 'trusts.' Hanna is quoted as having recently de clared that there are no trusts, but ad mits that there are great monopolies. We have no contention with Hanna or his party as to the name they prefer to use. The fact remains, that powerful combines of capital operating under cor poration charters have seized upon: and monopolized the great instruments of production and distribution in this na tion to such an extent as to be able to and they do suppress production at will and absolutely control the prices on most staple products and the channels through which these products may be marketed. This power and number of these corporation combines is rapidly throwing out of employment and out of business the great middle class in our nation, and tha Republican party, through its managers and even its pres ent national committee, have limd up on the side of these monopolies in this contest. "I do not feel at liberty to give the name of the company receiving the above communication and contributing to the circulation of the book, but the original correspondence, letters and the receipt are in the possession of parties who can produce them should it become necessary. "Thus we have the Republican party, through and by some of its representa tives, declare that there are no trusts, while its great leaders and the ma chinery of the party are actively at work defending and aiding trusts."

Goings Commission Company, members Chicago Board of Trade, Topeka. Chicago. Oct. 20. WHEAT In wheit the selling pressure appears to have run its course, and the market has steadied and firmed fractionally. The better feel ing is due to diminishing country move ment of wheat, lighter Argentine ship ments and reports from that country of prospective damage to the growing crop and estimates of reduced yield. Foreign markets have shown uncertainty and been Independent of markets on this side, while there is a steady good export de mand for wheat and fair clearances from the seaboard. Cash wheat in northwest is in brisk demand and the coming week will probably show the turning point in the visible supply figures. A large short interest has been built up of late and many erstwhile bulls on wheat have grown discouraged and sold out. This leaves the market in rather strong spec ulative position, and with continued un favorable advices from Argentine, liahier farmers' deliveries, good cash demand, or strength abroad, or any of these, there will be a ruh to buy wheat. Shortt will be anxious buyers and there is a smail army of bulls who hav no wheat who. on the first show of strength, will come Into the market. The factors likely to depress prices have all been exhausted now and developments of the future hold only promise to the believers in higher prices. The situation in the United States is de cidedly strong and is bound to exert itself sooner or later. When the rush to buy comes, the advance will not be a halting one but will be radical and sustained. CORN Wet weather in Iowa t help ng to strengthen the far futures of corn, as belief in the grading of new corn befcre the first of the year is not general under these conditions. Selling of October and Novem'er by the leading local bull oper. ators has taken the edge off of these de liveries and October situation c'.ears, ther i has come Into th mnrket a ffl!nir ht once of relief and romidenc. Tlie buying of December and Mav corn the pHt lew days has been excellent nii May corn i.t the relative price now ruling is regrd. 1 by many as attractive property. Ktiurrn ous sales f cash corn for export tind eastern distributions have been made, ai d, with the country bare of stocks, are go ing to eat into this season's crop t a rate much faster than ever before known. With fear of manipulation In October nl Iayed, corn is likely to bull from other causes wholly. OATS Oats have been Btrn nd dull. The market Is small atid feature a t w. Some covering by smaller shorts, but transactions riot large enough to exciio even passing interest. PROVISION'S Active and erratic. Heavy manufacturers ar making a ba : t ' ground of meats for this month's deliv ery while the outside trade has gone into January product. Hogs are ct.ming n freely and promise a fair winter run. On this theory there has been some weihner of winter deliveries on the belief of lower hog prices Inter on. On the tber ha al the consumption of meats and fats hs In creased so that sttH'ks are shorn In no hc cumiriulution at present and with u cu -tinuanee of this demand, provision will likely held their own and induce coveting by the January shorts later on.
