Fusion Nominee For Senator Denies Charges by Republicans. C B. Hoffman, of Enterprise, has been charged with being a member of the grain dealers' trust and one of those who has been profiting- br the fl ur combine. Hon. man. who is the fusion nominee lor st-na-t .r in the district composed of Clay and XMckinson counties, has made public the following statement: "Mv firm at Kmerprise has never b?en a member of a trust of any kind. We buy and sell in the open market buying grain from farmers or independent eleva tors and selling flour in competition with the world. However, there is a millers' trust in the northwest, with headquarters In Minneapolis and Us tap root in Lon don. This trust is putting out its ten tacles into Kansas. The so-called 'line elevators' belong to and are a part of It. If the people do not stop its encroach ments by proper legislation it will ruin every independent mill and elevator iri the state. So long as there are independ ent mills and elevators the 'line eleva tors will have to pay market price for prain, but when the independent mills and elevators are shut up or captured by the trust, then the farmer will be held up. In the Dakotas the millers' and grain dealers' trust has control of practically the entire grain region. Farmers there are entirely at the mercy o the com bine. "Eastern railroads favor the 'line eleva tors' and the norrnwestern millers' trust by charging Kansas millers a higher rate on flour for export than they charge on wheat for export. Such a policy, if con tinued, will destroy the milling industry of Kansas. This would be a calamity not only to the mnlers, but to the thousands employed in milling, and to merchants and farmers as well. Milling is the larg est industry in the state." OPIE BEAD'S DATES.

South bound Missouri Pacific fast mail Tc. 10, which left Leavenworth at 9:45 Monday night, was wrecked at South Leavenworth by a collision with a freight car. The fireman, who jumped, was the only one Injured, and his in juries are slight. The freight car by some means unknown was run from a ediing onto the main line track, and as there is a curve at that point it was im possible for Engineer Kelley to see the car in time to stop his train. He suc ceeded in reducing the speed enough to pave the train from a serious wreck. Trains were delayed four hours by the wreck. Two cars loaded with coal, off the track near Carbondale Monday morning, threatened to tie up traffic on the Santa Fe for a short time. The cars were just going on a switch leading from the main track. Luckily they had gone far enougn so tnat trains could be run around them, by using what is called the house track, and in this way no de lay was caused to through trains. It took soma time to tret the main track clear. Sillicua "I was awfully downhearted before I got engaged. I married for sympathy." Cynicus "Well, you've got mine." REWARD OF MERIT. A New Catarrh Cure Secures National Popularity in Less Than One Year. Throughout a great nation of eighty million it is a desperate struggle to se cure even a recognition for a new ar ticle to say nothing of achieving popular favor, and yet within one year Staurt's Catarrh Tablets, the new catarrh cure, has met with such success that today it can be found in every drug store throughout the United States and Can ada. To be sure, a large amount of adver tising was necessary in the first in stance to bring the remedy to the at tention of the public but every one fa miliar with the subject knows that ad vertising alone never made any article permanently successful. It must have in addition absolute, undeniable merit, and this the new catarrh cure certainly possesses in a marked degree. Physicians, who formerly depended upon inhalersi, sprays and local washes or ointments now use Staurt's Catarrh Tablets because, as one of the most prominent stated, these tablets contain in pleasant, convenient form all the really eiHeient catarrh remedies, such as red gum, Guiacol, Eucalyptol, and Banguinaria. They contain no cocaine nor opiate, and are given to little children with en tire safety and benefit. Dr. J. J. Reitiger, of Covington, Ky., says: I suffered from catarrh in my head and throat every fall, with stop page of the nose and irritation in the tnroat affecting my voice and often ex tending to the stomach, causing catarrh of the stoniach. I bought a fifty cent package of Staurt's Catarrh, Tablets at my druggists, carried them in my pocket and used them faithfully, and the way in which they cleared my head and throat was certainly remarkable. I had no catarrh last winter and spring and ?mtlySeiS ectire'y free from any catarrhal trouble. Mrs. Jerome Ellison, of Wheeling, W , a. writes: I suffered from catarrh nearly my whole life and last winter mv two children a so suffered from catarrhal colds and sore throat so much they were out of school a large portion of the win ter. My brother who was cured of catarrhal deafness by using Staurt's Catarrh Tablets urged me to try them bo much that I did so and am trulv thankful for what they have done for myself and my children. I always keep a box of the tablets in the house" and at the first appearance of a cold or sore throat we nip it in the'bud and catarrh Is no longer a household affliction with us. Full sized packages of Stuart's Catarrh Tablets are sola for fifty cents at ail druggrists. RAILROADNEVS- Santa Fe in the Market For More Coal Cars. Fire Hundred in Addition to Its liecent Big Order. AVERAGE DAILY LOAD Balances in Comparison With Proposed New Equipment. Some Interesting Sidelights on Coal Car Economies. Specifications for about 500 additional hopper coal cars are being prepared by the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe. A few weeks ago the Santa Fe placed an order for 300 of the same kind of coal cars with a Chicago firm. The road has had heavy coal hauls this fall, ow ing to increased consumption of its own factories and like business enterprises in general. The Santa Fe loads on an average of 700 cars of coal per day and a large equipment is required. The new equip ment expected would represent, there fore, a little over one day's load. The "hopper" style of car is higher than the ordinary gondola and not as long. The floor slopes sharply from either end to the middle of the car, so that the coal can be unloaded by gravity, having the advantage over the flat-bottomed gondola, which had to be shoveled out. Partly through the press for coal carrying equipment and partly as a cat" service economy, the patent dumping dirt cars that are to be used in cutting down grades have been utilized in haul ing coal as they were sent out from the manufacturing strops to their destina tions. They were loaded with coal in Illinois for Argentine and Topeka. These cars are not closed up at the ends, but they loaded and carried 50,000 pounds each. They are of especially solid con struction for the work that is cut out for them. Some dirt cars laden with coal are now moving into Texas also. ROCK ISLAND EXTENSION-. Proposed Iiine Through Texas Tor Better California Connections. A St. Louis Globe-Democrat epecial from Des Moines, Iowa, says: A report to the effect the Rock Island road would extend its southwestern di vision and absorb a line that would give it its own trackage into El Paso, Tex., to a connection with the Mexican Interna tional road and the Southern Pacific. has been confirmed by a letter received here by an official of the road. The Rock Is land will begin work shortly on an ex tension of its Liberal branch from that place through the Texas Panhandle and northeast New Mexico to White Oaks, N. M. At this point it will meet the tracks of the EI Paso and Northeastern railroad, extending to White Oaks from El Paso, which road it will acquire eith er by lease or purchase of its stocks and bonds, thus securing a continuous line from Chicago, via either Omaha or Kan sas City, to the international border. It will give to the Rock Island a connec tion with the Mexican International which has heretofore been obliged, through its surroundings, to turn a great deal of its American business over to the Southern Pacific. It will also give the Rock Island a direct line to southern California, via the Southern Pacifie, as short as the Santa Fe line, and across to California independent of other connecting lines than the Southern Pacific. At present it is dependent upon a third line between Denver and Ogden, or upon the Union Pacific from Omaha. In addition to this, the road will extend through the heart of the Panhandle, the greatest cattle grazing country in the southwest, and through the eastern part of New Mexico, which is rapidly devel oping as a cattle and agricultural coun try. MODERATE MEANS TOURISTS. Many Take a Winter in California Like Millionaires. "Travel to California," said a Santa Fe man today, "is marvelous for this season of the year. Ordinarily business to the Pacific coast doesn't begin until later than this, but this season it has al ready been almost as large as during previous years when at its height, and this is certainly remarkable for this sea son of the year. "It is noticeable fact, too, that most of the pleasure-seekers and tourists who are going to California to spend the winter, or a part of it, are people of moderate means, but who have been able to save enough money out of their business to take a little trip and enjoy life as thoroughly as though they were millionaires." NINETEEN IOWA ROADS Operated by Lease Sold to tho Bur lington Outright. Chicago, Oct, 23. Special meetings of stockholders of nineteen Iowa roads now leased and operated by the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy railroad company were held here today. They ratified the action of the directors in agreeing to sell to the Burlington company outright the properties in which they are inter ested. The roads are the Chicago Bur lington & Kansas City; Clarinda, Col lege Springs & Southwestern; Crest on & Northern; Fairfield&Ottumwa; Hastings 6 Avoca; Burlington & Missouri River; Chillicothe & Chariton; Creston branch of the Burlington & Missouri; Keokuk & St. Paul; Leon, Mt Ayre & Southwest ern; Nebraska City, Sidney & North western: Western Iowa; Albia, Knox ville & Des Moines; Browanville & Nod away Valley; Chariton, Des Moines & Southern; Des Moines & Knoxville; Humiston & Shenandoah; Murray & Creston ; Red Oak & Atlantic. At their annual meeting on November 7 the stockholders of the Burlington will be asked by the directors to approve of the purchase of these properties in the interest of economy and improved meth ods of operation. MAKING MANY ENGINEERS. Santa Pe Firemen Examined and Sent to Argentine Briskly. Firemen are being passed up to engi neers' berths on the Santa Fe at a lively rate of late. Examinations were held daily a larger part of last week, up till yesterday. Several other firemen have been called up to take the examination. The demand for engineers argues heavy traffic going over the systemasaccurate ly as the sight of long trains and many extras. In conversation about the frequent ex aminations and the rapid transforma tions going on an official said: "Yes, more than average number of examina tions are being held just now. There is use for the new engineers as fast as they are set up. They are sent right over to Argentine to take out a train and no waits. Even then there is need for more than are sent, I have an idea." Distribution of Railroad Wages. There are 930,000 men employed in the railway service, receiving in wages last year the enormous sum of $522,000,000 or $77,000,000 more than in 1S95. Official re ports show that the increase of gross earnings from 1S95 to 1899 inclusive was $300,000,000, and of net earnings $110,000, 000. Besides tho vast disbursements for wages and betterments over $111,000,000 was paid out in dividends, an Increase of nearly $26,000,000 since 1895. And most of the wages paid out was to the working classes, men who support families and are of the bone and sinew of the land. In 1899 over $77,000,000 went to trackmen, $142,000,000 to trainmen, engineers, fire men, conductors, brakemen, etc.; $S9, 000,000 to clerks, station agerits and oth ers; $58,000,000 to switchmen, flagmen, watchmen, telegraph operators and other employes, and $116,000,000 to machinists, carpenters, shopmen, foremen and oth ers, while the officers drew something like $20,000,000. PROM EMPORIA. The new pump for the round house has been put in and is doing all right. The old one was worn out and did not have enough pressure. It will be sent to Topeka. Chas. W. Mayor, vice grand master of the brotherhood of locomotive firemen, will be here November 7. There will be a big union meeting here also. A long string of bad order cars went through this morning on an extra. They are being sent to Topeka for repairs, having been picked up along the line. R. F. Jenning has returned from a month's trip through Georgia and Tenn essee. He also visited Chicago and Min neapolis. The notices on the switchman's shanty keep the hoboes guessing. One days it says "come in and make yourself at home," and the next day it says "if you don't stay out. look out." The board at the round house is too small, and it makes lots of extra work for the callers to keep up. There are forty-seven full engine crews in the pool here at present, also fifty extra firemen and nineteen extra engineers to keep track of. Preparations for the switchmen's ball continue to be made, and the way the boys are working it can be said that everything will be on time November 29. Over 100 tickets have been sold, and they still continue to go. The money raised will be used as an accident fund. Every one should help it along. EROM WELLINGTON. Fireman Frank Dice has secured a regular run on the H. & S,, with head quarters at Hutchinson. Chas. Snyder has secured a position in the Santa Fe shops. He will move his family there. Fireman Andy Adams returned from Topeka Saturday morning, where he went? to attend the meeting of the fire men's grievance committee with the Santa Fe officials. Former Erakeraan Chet Harding, one of the nicest little fellows who screwed a brake for the Santa Fe, took the nec essary examination first of the week and now his cap says . "conductor." Bully for Chet. FROM NEWTON. It is said that Herman Frenzel is the lucky man who captured the chicken which strayed into the machine shop the other day. Switchmen Kelly, Holt and Hangerman have departed for Galveston .where the boys have obtained a situation. It is predicted they will return to Newton in six months. Machinist Gayle Reynolds came in from Deadwood, South Dakota, the other night and will visit with his parents here a few weeks. Gayle is working for the Jri. & M. at Deadwood, and is not only pleased with his situation but is impressed with the country and climate. SANTA EE LOCALS. J. W. Baird has returned to work in the coach erecting shop after a two weeks' lay off through illness. Charles Wood left the roundhouse Monday, going to La Junta to start in as fireman. Engine No. 430 is getting a change of dress in the roundhouse. The painters have it rigged out as No. 1 of the L. M. & N., which is said to be an eastern road which has brought 80 engines here. Airbrake instruction car No. 101 of the Scranton correspondence school will go out of the coach shop on Thursday or Friday. Railroad men have taken great interest in it while here and appreciate its worth fully. It is expected that the surveyors will finish running the lines for the new blacksmith shop today and excavations wlil begin tomorrow. Mark L. Symmes has left the black smith shop and gone on trestle work with a bridge gang on the "cut off." THREE HALLS FULL Got. Roosevelt Has Great but Noisy Meetings at Kingston. Kingston, N. T., Oct, 23. Governor Roosevelt finished the first day of his flying campaign through the state in Kingston last night after traveling 89 miles and making eight speeches, the longest being at Newburgh and Kings ton. At the former place, the home of the Republican candidate for governor, he talked to a vast assemblage, having to speak in two places. Spectators in terrupted the speaker with questions, in every instance receiving a reply. At West Nyack a man close to the car cried and reiterated "Hurrah for Bryan!" and Mr. Roosevelt replied: "Why don't you hurrah for Altgeld and Aguinaldo?" The cheering ceased. Another called "What about the ice trust?" and he an swered: "This election will be decided by the patriots and men of sense in the country who outnumber the junker shouters of your type. The ice trust will be attended to in a proper legal way." A man in the crowd at Newburgh said in a low tone of voice: "Why did you call Democrats cowards and dishonest?" Roosevelt heard him and flung back quickly this characteristic reply. "It's a lie; I never said such a thing. It is Democrats, good Democrats, who sweH our majority." Toward the end of his remarks at Newburgh the governor was interrupt ed a number of times by some shouts of "What's the matter with Bryan?" "Down with the trusts:" Governor Roosevelt remarked: "That gentleman has all the symptoms of a Bryanite," which sally was greeted with laughter and applause. Then walking over to one side of the platform and speaking di rectly toward the point from which the shouts arose the governor said: "You look like one of those men who work ex clusively with their mouths. What do you mean to down, the cotton bale trust of Mr. Jones, or the ice trust of Mr. Croker? Cries of 'What's the matter with Bryan? He's all right.' that is an argument of wind. You are afraid to hear the truth. You interrupt this meet ins because you are a. hoodlum, and Thousands Hare Kidney , Trouble and Don't Know it. How To Find Out.

Now go back to your fel low hoboes and learn after this (more yelling and the man evidently turned to depart) that you stand against the flag. You have not got a particle of patriot ism in you. I am glad you are going away. I think you have learned enough hereafter not to monkey with the buzz saw. (Long continued applause.) Now, gentlemen, in the temporary absence of the local police, I have driven off that disturber of the meeting." (Applause.) At Newburgh the party was enter tained at Mr. Odell's home. This city began its reception to Gov ernor Roosevelt by sending 700 people on a special to Newburgh to meet Gov ernor Roosevelt's party. Mr. Odell came up on the train with the governor. There was a good crowd at the station, and the committee on arrangements an nounced that the interest was so great that they had arranged for three meet ings to take place in three different au ditoriums. Each of these was packed with people at 8 o'clock. The governor spoke first at the Academy of Music, while at the other halls, holding the audience until his arrival other persons made brief speeches. Even the three halls failed to hold the people and an outdoor meeting was necessary. Governor Roosevelt in his speeches took up some of Mr. Bryan's statements in the state, particularly the one in which Mr. Bryan said that if elected to office he would crush out every pri vate monopoly. He said: "Whv, that would mean crushing out every business and the doing away with a man's revenue on a patent, Mr. Bryan could not do such a thing, and he is dis honest when he says he would." A man in the audience cried: "Three cheers for Bryan," but instead of the usual attack the governor smiled and said: "Why?" and the man subsided. Later somebody asked: "What about the canals?" "I did not catch that," eaid the gover nor. "It's only a kid," said another man. "Well, I have six of those," said the governor, amid a roar of laughter, "and they are not a cause of contention." Outside of the Y. M. C. A., a stand had been erected around which was a large concourse of people and the governor spoke a few words there, before pro ceeding to the opera house, where he was booked for his third speech. As the governor climbed through a window and appeared on the temporary platform he was greeted with a ming ling of cheers and hisses and hurrahs for Bryan and hurrahs for Roosevelt. The governor assured those assembled that it was a pleasure to see a fine turnout. He stated that he hoped good would be done even to those upon whom the light was not yet shining. This was greeted with renewed cries of "Hurrah for Bry an." "Three cheers for Bryan." The governor had gone on without noticing the interruptions, but it continuing he finally said: "There are some whom we can not reach. Any man who thinks noise is a substitute for thought can not be ap pealed to, (great applause mingled with shouts of "Hurrah for Bryan") and nat urally feels like going the other way. (Great applause). I make an appeal to every man, to every brave and honest man (voice :"Who got shot in the back?") No stronger appeal could be made than by those who fear to hear the truth, (a voice: "Who was four miles away?") when men will not listen to arguments, you can guarantee that they represent a pretty poor set. (Great applause). When men are afraid to hear the truth they are certain not to be good citizens. (Applause). I appeal to every honest and decent citizen to vote against the party that encourages that kind of fol ly; rebuke rowdyism of that stamp. They show how utterly unsafe it would be to trust any kind of government in the hands of people of that sort. Great ap plause). They are giving you an admir able object lesson in Bryanism. (Cries of "What Is the matter with Teddy? He's all right"). I will tell you gentlemen, another thing. They had better holler now, for they won't holler after election. They have added to my amusement to night. (Laughter and applause). A voice: T feel sorry for you, Teddy.' "Go right on gentlemen. With an ele ment in your midst like that those peo ple naturally object to decent govern ment, (Cries of "Bryan, Bryan, Bryan") suppose you give a cheer for Croker, or Aguinaldo? (Applause). Naturally, gen tlemen, they object to a meeting being field. Any man, whether a Republican or a Democrat, who will come to a meet ing and listen respectfully is entitled to respectful treatment and any such man is the man who is insulted and outraged by that kind of attack. Nothing that you can say would be as strong as an argument for our party as such conduct as that tonight. (Great applause). The people who will do that kind of thing are unfit to be trusted with any kind of government, (Great applause). They are a disgrace to their fellow townsmen and If they were capable of feeling they are a disgrace to themselves." (Great applause). The governor closed by saying that he stayed longer than he had intended as he found the noisy gentlemen so inter esting.

Osawatomie Asylum Employe Objects to Blue Milk When Cream Is Used For His slonary Meeting. STATE PATS BILLS." Complaint and Charge From Asylum Employe. Says Entertainment For 100 People Furnished by State. An employe of the state insane asylum at Osawatomie has written to the State Journal a letter in which it is charged that the management of the institution deprived the employes of their supply of cream for coffee and other table pur poses, giving them skimmed milk, in order to have cream with which to freeze Ice cream for a joint meeting of the missionary societies of Paola and Osawatomie. Those in touch with the management of the state institutions in Topeka are not informed concerning this Incident, so no information could be obtained here either in confirmation or denial of the charges. Extracts from the letter are as follows: "The missionary society of Paola met with the Osawatomie society at the in sane asylum. An excellent programme was rendered, after which- excellent re freshments were served." This paragraph introduced the subject matter wheh touches on the cream in cidents, loncerning which the letter con tains the following: "The subjects of the attention of these societies will no doubt be inspired to a higher and nobler existence, but they would not be particularly benefited by this meeting of the societies, jointly, did they know how the cream for the em ployes of the asylum had been cut off for two days they receiving only blue, skimmed milk for coffee that the la dies of the society might have the real thing for the ice cream which was served. "The benighted people bf the Orient will perhaps never know that the cooks employed by the state of Kansas worked during their hours off duty to make cakes for this meeting; or how a requi sition was officially made on the steward for chocolate for the cakes; how ice pur chased and paid for by the state the taxpayers of the state was used to freeze, ten gallons of cream which the dining room girls employed and paid by the state were ordered not requested to appear and serve. "There were over 100 persons present and the state furnished the refreshments. Only those who were in authority in the institution as officers thereof were per mitted to participate in this entertain ment given by the state to the mission ary society, and the employes of the state were removed from their official duties for the time being to dance at tendance and obey the orders of petty officers' wives who were in charge of the entertainment. "The contributions by the state for this missionary meeting made a feast. The employes and patients of the insti tution have to be content with hastily cooked meals of the plainest food pos sible. "The institution for the time served the convenience of those who wanted to show the visitors a good time, and the state stores were drawn upon for the refreshments; state employes did the work, and the taxpayers foot the bills. "I am a Republican, but this sort of business wearies me beyond endurance." BRYAN'S NEW LEAD. Discusses Kace Question in West Tirginia. Hinton, W. Va., Oct. 23. The line of the Chesapeake railway traversing the picturesque valleys of the Kanawha and New Rivers was the scene of Mr. Bry an's campaign yesterday. Speeches were made at Huntington, Hurricane, St- Al bans, Charleston, Brownstone, East Bank, Montgomery, Sewell, Thurmond and Hinton. The size of the audiences varied, but all of them were large in proportion to the population of the towns and of the surrounding country. There were especially fine crowds at Huntington, Charleston and Hinton.pso ple coming into those towns from all the adjacent region. The one notable fea ture of the day was Mr. Bryan's repeat ed reference to the race question. Hib line of travel was further south than he had gone before and further than he will again go, and there were quite a num ber of colored people scattered through the crowds at all the stopping places. Air. Bryan evidently noted their pres ence, and took occasion to address por tions of his speeches especially to them, appealing to them to do justice by the Filipinosasthey would have justice done by themselvesi The first point at which he touched upon this question was at St. Albans. There he said: "When we complain that the Republi cans are applying in the Philippine isl ands doctrines that deprive people of the right to govern themselves the argu ment that a Republican makes is that some of the southern states have added amendments requiring an educational qualification for voting. I want to sub mit this question to the Republicans: Do they approve of what is being done in the south or do they oppose it? If they oppose it, why do they propose worse things in Porto Rico and in the Philippine Islands than have been pro posed in the south? Read the qualifica tions adopted by your own administra tion for voting in Porto Rico and you will find they have an educational qual ification there that deprives S3 per cent of the black men of voting age of the right to vote; not only this, but they de prive them of the protection of the con stitution of the United States. In the Philippine islands they are going on the theory that the brown people there have no right to a voice in their government and when a Republican tells a black man in this country that tie ought to vote the Republican ticket I want the black man to ask him this question: 'If a brown man in the Philippines has no right to vote what about the black man?' And I want to ask what black man can stand on his own right to a voice in this government if he votes the Republican ticket and denies to the peo ple in other islands a right to a voice in their government. And if the Repub licans tell the colored man that he is un der obligations to the Republican partv, let the colored man reply that he has paid his debt of gratitude. If Lincoln were here the colored man might vote for him, but the modern leaders of the Republican party have had more from the colored man than they have ever given to him.

I want the colored men before they vote the Republican ticket to know that the policy of the Republican parly is to send a few white men to the Phil ippine islands and hold those white men in authority pver 99 per cent of the pop ulation, which will be brown and this is to be done by a standing army. Instead of using the race question as a reason why we should annex the Philippine isl ands, let the race question be a warning to us not to bring into this country a class of people who are not to share in the full destiny of our nation. I want the Filipino to have his own flag and his own government and to work out his own destiny and I want this nation to stand by him and say to the world, 'Hands off; let this republic live.' " Mr. Bryan reverted to the race ques tion in his speech at Charleston. There he said: "Forty years ago the Republicans said that a black man should not sell for a thousand dollars, but now they will buy brown men by the job lot for two dollars and a half a piece. They said a genera tion ago that the declaration of inde pendence applies to a black man. Now they say it does not apply to a brown man. It costs us hundreds of thousands of lives and hundreds of millions of money to take out of the declaration of independence the exception clause that excluded the black man. Now shall we wage a war of conquest to write in the declaration of independence another ex ception clause, excluding the brown man? Our progress has been upwards up to this time, let It not be backward from now on. Don't dare to deny to any people in foreign lands, the right that you claim for yourselves, for you have a right to your government the Filipino has a right to his and if you deny him the right to his own government you will not long have a right to yours." Mi". Bryan also referred to the race question in other speeches during the day. At East Bank Mr. Bryan said: "I am glad that behind me I have those who will be satisfied with equal rights and who will not ask special priv ileges if I am elected. I am glad that I have not behind me the trust magnates, for if I am elected I do not want them to hang about the White House and tell me how they elected me and therefore claim that they own me. I have no de sire to help you to get your hands into other people's pockets. If I can keep other people's hands out of your pockets I will do what you will want me to do for the laboring man." Mr. Bryan spoke to a congregation composed largely of coal miners at the little mountain town of Sewall. He told the people there that the Democratic party stood for the arbitration of labor disputes and for a representative of the labor in the cabinet of the president. When some one in the crowd asked what he would do for the old soldier if elected he replied that he would appoint a commissioner of pensions who would be more satisfactory to the soldiers than the present one. After the train started to move in leaving Sewall a man in the outskirts of the crowd, apparently very much in earnest, demanded to know about Mr. Bryan's attitude toward the ratification of the Paris peace treaty. Mr. Bryan had the train stopped, and made a full explanation of his action and position in that matter. When this ex planation had been concluded the same man asked about the- expenditure of twenty million dollars in procuring those islands. To this inquiry Mr. Bryan re plied: "If you had read an article that I wrote about a month before the treaty was signed, you would have seen that we could have got it back from the Fil ipinos in return for independence, but if you did not I would rather consider it a contribution to liberty than as part payment on men and their lands." When Mr. Bryan concluded his reply, his interrogator pushed his way through the crowd and, coming tip to the cat platform, offered his hand to the presi dential candidate, saying: "I thought I had a right as an American citizen to ask that question." Mr. Bryan said in response: "You certainly did have and I am glad you asked me." The questioner Joined in the cheers which sent Mr. Bryan on his way. The meeting at Thurmond was held in a gorge in the mountains and the stand from which Mr. Bryan spoke was perch ed upon a steep cliff on one Bide of the canyon. His audience at Thurmond was com posed largely of coal miners and in clos ing Mr. Bryan asked them to remember their votes were their own. He warned them against allowing themselves to be intimidated or their votes purchased. The meeting at Hinton was the last of the day and when it concluded Mr. Bryan left for Washington en route for Maryland, to which state he will devote today. Mr. Bryan made a general speech at Hinton. When some one asked him about the necessity for a large army in this country, he said that if the Demo cratic plans for the settlement of dis putes by arbitration, for doing away with the black list and for abolishment of government by injunction couid be put into execution there would be no necessity for a large army. The crowd at Hinton was not only large but was noisily demonstrative. There was a number of shouts for McKinley at the beginning of the meeting. No one would ever be bothered with constipation if everyone knew how nat urally and quickly Burdock Blood Bit ters regulate the stomach and bowels. J. C. ECCKE.
