Ban Johnson Gives Out a Plain
Declares American League Will
AN EXPANSION POLICY.
Without Consent of Any Other
Will Tale In Cities of Baltimore
Washington, IX C. Oct. 26. The Na
tional League territory will again be in
vaded by the American League, with
' or without permission. The expansion
policy of the American League on a
scale approaching national proportions,
was definitely and positively proclaimed
this mornins for the first time by Presi
dent Byron Bancroft Johnson, who has
been here the past two days with) Mr.
C. W. Sumef, owner of the Cleveland
club, studying the local situation for the
purpose of organizing an American
League club here.
President Johnson, when consulted as
to the purposes of the American League,
"We have concluded positively to in
clude Washington and Baltimore in our
circuit next season, and are now consid
ering arrangemrtits far this purpose. We
have tinaUy determined to break our
former bounds and come east regardless
of what obstacles may be placed in our
fath. We haTe more than ample finan
cial backing and enthusiastic support
ers to accomplish oar object, and will
go right ahead organizing our new cir
cuit, and will have" everything in full
readiness to promptly start the season
next spring. I have looked at the Na
tional League's plant here. National
Park, which still carries a three-year
lease, but we may locate at another
place, possibly the circus grounds.
"While we wish to work in harmony
with the major league we have grown
large and strong enough not to be dic
tated to, and will choose our own
(.'rounds and infringe on National league
territory even without its consent if our
.wishes are not respected."
Mr. Johnson further said:
"We are bound for- Raltimore, where
we will look after arrangements for a
club in that city the next couple of
days. From Baltimore we will go to
Philadelphia and New York to canvass
the situation in those cities. I will call
8 meeting of the American league mag
nates in the next ten days, when a re
port will be made and the matter dis
cussed." When questioned as to which two
cities will be dropped next season, and
what possible action might be taken the
following year. President Johnson said:
"I can not foretell what cities the
American club owners will agree to
withdraw from. Ouf league is an un
usually good one, worthy of a better cir
cuit than at least two of the cities
afforded last season. All the other cities
are excellent has-ball towns. What will
be the conditions a year hence I can only
Furmtse. Our keynote is progress, with
nil the American owners banded together
f-r their general protection, and our
circuit may be determined by a survival
tf the fittest among the cities."

Glasgow, Oct. 26. The Citizen an
nounces today that the Shamrock II is
to be built on the Clyde by Denny Bros,
of Dunbarton. Mr. Watson has been ex
perimenting for some time with models
of the new boat in the Denny Bros.'
The hull of the new boat will be of

Report That American Will Be
Barred From the Cambridshira.
London, Oct. 26. It was reported at
the Newmarket race meeting yesterday
nfternoon that Johnny Keiff would be
prevented from riding in the Cambridge
shire yesterday and was likely to be sus
pended for the remainder of the week
for disobeider.ee at the post.
Mr. Drake s letters to the papers are

crying aloud for renewed

Many laughed at Mr. Drake's state
ments and say that the English train

Some persons , declare .. that they
thought it a pity that Mr. Drake should
give up racing over here, as he had al
ways come out so well from any charges
that had been leveled against him. In
another nuarter it is declared ridicu

MTTKNANE IS IN THE SAKE.
No One Has Asked Him to Preside
Over the National League.
Boston, Oct. 26 Timothy H. Murnane
doubts the correctness of the rumors
that he is to succeed Nick Toung as
president of the National League. He
"I know no more about the matter
than what I have read in tne newspa
pers of late. I have not been approach
ed by a single person regarding the
matter, and cannot, therefore, say any
thing on the subject. You know just as
much about the matter as I do. I have
made no effort to secure the position,
and while I should regard my selection
for the place as the highest honor I
could receive at the hands of baseball
men, I shall not make any effort to get
the place. I am, I hope, a true friend
of baseball, and I am for the good of the
game first, last and always.
"I do not want to place myself in any
false light, and so I tell you frankly
that I know nothing about the truth of
these rumors. If the baseball people
want me for president they have not as
yet sent anyone to talk with me about

Of People to See and Hear Bryan
Throughout New Jersey.
Jersey City., N.' J., Oct 26. The first
day of Mr. Bryan's tour of New Jersey,
which closed here with six meetings last
night may be described as a mad rush.
From the time he entered Washington
park, opposite Philadelphia, until he
closed his last meeting here, he had
made 15 speeches. The average of their
duration was greater than usual. He
spoke In succession at Washington park.
Riverside, Burlington, Trenton (twice),
Princeton Junction, New Brunswick.
Elizabeth, Marion and Jersey City (six
times). His journey through the state
was a surprise to those accompanying
Mr. Bryan if not to him, for in few
states if any has he had larger or more
demonstrative audiences. His meeting
at Washington park was almost a rec
ord breaker in these respects and his
meetings in Trenton and his reception In
this city were only second to the Wash
ington park meeting in numbers and in
feeling displayed. Probably no candi
date for the presidency was. ever so
much jostled about and pushed around
in one day's time as Mr. Bryan was. At
most stopping places the police found it
impossible to protect him from the hun
dreds, not to say thousands of persons
who thronged his pathway and followed
him wherever he went.
"I have addressed a great many meet
ings of college boys, but I never had a
nicer meeting than this in my life." This
is what Mr. Bryan said to a number of
Princeton boys who followed him to his
train from his meeting place at Prince
ton Junction. He arrived at the junc
tion at half past 5, and spoke from a
slightly raised stand on the green in the
rear of the railway station. Included in
the audiences were from 1.400 to 1,500
students of Princeton college which in
stitution is located three miles distant
from the junction. The meeting was one
of the most enthusiastic and orderly
that Mr. Bryan has had in his whole
campaign tour. There was not an in
terruption from beginning to end. When
Mr. Bryan arrived he was g-eeted by
the college yell and there was'j similar
demonstration upon his departure. His
address there was entirely to the stu
dents. He said:
"I want you to consider that in this
nation a new policy exists and that it is
rapidly approaching an industrial des
potism. I want you to consider whether
it is well for a free government to have
its industries collected under the man
agement of a few men so that the rest
of the people will receive their daily
bread at the hands of these few. Many
of you are preparing yourselves for the
legal profession but you will find under
the system of monopoly that the law
business of the country will gravitate
towards the offices of the great corpora
tion attorneys while the rest of the law
yers will be law clerks in the offices of
those attorneys. You will find that as
monopoly increases the chance of the
young man becomes less and when you
take away the hope that has Inspired
him in the past you render him a less
effective man. This nation is the great
est nation in the world, because here
there is more hope for the young man,
here life is before the young men. There
is no class distinction: there is no casie.
In this country the son of the humblest
citizen may aspire to the highest awards
in the industrial and political world, but
under an industrial despotism you take
away the prospect of independence and
under this system you will find that po
itical depotism will follow, for when
ore employer can coerce thousands of
employes and threaten them with idle
ness and starvation unless they vote the
ticket the employer favors you will find
a government of the people, by the peo
ple and for the people will be a thins
of the past.
"I want to call your attention also to
the system which is now being proposed
by the Republicans, known as the eolon
ial svstera. One of our great institutions
of learning has established in the coilege
a department for instruction for dealing
with our dependencies and colonies.
Young men, we have never had colonies
and when we have reached the p: int
where we want colonies, we have reached
the point where we do not have a re
public. You can not have, one idea here
and another idea in the Orient. Govern
ments can not come up from the people
here and in the Philippine islands come
out of tne mouth of the cannon."

FOR THE CHILDREN.
To Keep Their Digestion Perfect,
Nothing is so Safe and Pleasant as
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets.
Thousands of men and women have
found Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets the
safest and most reliable preparation for
any form of indigestion or stomach trou
ble. Thousands of people who are not sick,
but are well and wish to keep well take
Stuart's Tablets after every meal to in
sure perfect digestion and avoid trou
ble. But it is not generally known that the
Tablets are just as good- and whole
some for little folk as for their elders.
Little children who are pale, thin and
have no appetite, or do not grow or
thrive, should use the tablets after eat
ing and will derive great benefit from
Mrs. G. H. Crotsley, 538 Washington
St., Hoboken, New Jersey, writes:
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets just fill the
bill for children as well as for older
folks. I've had the best of luck with
them. My three-year-old girl takes
them as readily as candy. I have only
to say "tablets" and she drops everything
else and runs for them.
A Buffalo mother a short time ago
who despaired of the life of her babe was
so delighted with the results from giving
the child these tablets that she went be
fore the notary public of Erie Co., N. Y.,
and made the following affidavit:
Gentlemen: Stuart's Dyspepsia Tab
lets were recommended to me for my
two-months'-old baby, which was sick
and puny and the doctors said was suf
fering from indigestion. I took the child
to the hospital, but there found no relief.
A friend mentioned the Stuat't Tablets
and I procured a box from my druggist
and used only the large sweet lozenges
in the box and was delighted to find they
were just the thing for my baby. I feel
justified in saying that Stuart's Dys
pepsia Tablets saved my child's life.

this 12th day of April, 1S97.
Notary Public In and for Erie Co., N. Y.
For babies, no matter1 how young or
delicate, the tablets will accomplish
wonders in increasing flesh, appetite and
growth. Use only the large sweet tab
lets in every box. Pull sized boxes are
sold by all druggists for 50 cents, and no
parent should neglect the use of this
safe remedy for all stomach and bowel
troubles if the child is ailing in any way
regarding its food or assimilation.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets have been
known for years as the best preparation
for ail stomach troubles whether in
adults or infants.
first of a long series held after nightfall.
The meeting was held in a public square
in the center of the city and was very
largely attended. There was no great
degree of enthusiasm manifested while
Mr. Brvan was talking, but a majority of
the assemblage rushed after his carriage
to the train and gave him a most demon
strative escort. He said:
"If the good Samaritan had found a
man beaten and bruised: had taken and
healed him, and had then said, after look
ing him over: 'This is a likely fellow
and I think I will take him and own
him.' the Bible would never have men
tioned the act. Yet this is our attitude
In our relationship to the Filipino.
At Elizabeth there was stop of thirty
minutes. Mr. Bryan spoke for about
Mr. Bryan's line of travel from the rail
way station to the public park in which
the Elizabeth meeting was held was bril
liantly lighted by Greek fire. Indeed, the
fires were so thick that while they lighted
the presidential ca d date's pathway, tiiey
filled the atmosphere so densely with dis
agreeable fumes that some of his admir
ers became alarmed for the effect upon
his throat. This alarm, however, was
baseless, as was proved by the fact that
he never spoke in clearer tones than he
ciia to tne immense audience wnien sur
rounded his platform at this meeting.
Mr. Bryan's train arrived at Marion, a
suburb of Jersey City, at 8:15 o'clock and
he was driven, after a brief meeting at
that place, to St. Joseph's hall, his first
stopping place in Jersey City. At Marion
Mr. Bryan was received by committees
from the various Jersey City ward clubs
and by a throng of people who filled all
the available space in the vicinity of the
station. In his Marion speech he gave his
principal attention to urging the voters
not to allow themselves to be either co
erced or persuaded into voting contrary
to their convictions at the coming elec
tion. Mr. Bryan made his tour of the Jersey
metropolis drawn by four spirited black
horses, and he was escorted by a march
ing club of several hundred young men.
The tour covered a wide range of terri
tory and did not come to an end until
near midnight. He made four indoor
speeches, the first at St. Joseph's hall,
the second at the Tabernacle, the third
at St. Peter's hall and the fourth at St.
Michael's hall in the district known as
"The Horseshoe." When he concluded he
went to Hoboken. where he spent the
night, in order that he might be there
for the first meeting today.
The line of the national candidate's
progress was marked everywhere by loud
acclaims on the part of the people and
the liberal discharge of fireworks.
Everywhere he was accompanied by a
dozen stalwart, policemen, who kept at a
distance the crowd which everywhere
seemed disposed to press in and embrace
The streets everywhere were crowded
and many houses were brilliantly illum
inated until late at night in honor of the
occasion. The halls at which speeches
were made were crowded to their utmost
Mr. Bryan's speeches Were all neces
sarily brief, but in each of them he found
opportunity to express his views upon the
subjects agitating the voting public He
undertook in each of them to show that
the trusts are oppressing the people: that
there is great danger under Republican
rule of an army larger than this country
needs for leigtimate purposes and that
there is great danger of drifting into im
perialism, if the country adopts a colonial
In addition to the hall meetings Mr.
Bryan addressed two immense crowds on

IN A SNAKE'S COILS.
From, the Chicago Inter-Ocean.
Harry Diamond, an employe of the
Atlantic and Pacific bird store, at 217
Madison street, says he is not a drinking
man, but he saw snakes yesterday. As
a matter of fact, he saw but one snake,
but this reptile was so big and strong
that Diamond imagined that 40 snakes
were sailing through the air in front of
his face. At the same time he felt a
pressure about his neck which resembled
the squeeze of a Hobson girl.
Harry's employers deal in snakes,
monkeys, fish, birds and animals. Yes-,
terday. in the morning express, came a
ventilated box marked "handle with
care." Investigation disclosed the fact
that the box contained an Australian
land snake, seven feet In length, and as
big through as an alderman's pocket
book.. N. Siotkin, manager of th4
store, ordered Diamond to place the
snake in a glass globe, and the young
man set about this task. He tore the
cover off the box and found his snake
ship apparently sleeping, and dreaming
of his old home on the sands of the
antipodes. Diamond gripped the
stranger in a strange land by the neck,
and a dozen monkeys scrambled to the
distant corners of their cage. The young
man had not counted on the strength
of the snake. He knew that Its tile,
was harmless, and he handled It with
the familiarity certain to breed con
tempt. Just to show its contempt for "store"
folks the snake raised its body in an
instant and threw its great coils about
Diamond's neck, darting its head about
in front of his face.
He forgot the harmless bite of the rep
tile and released his hold on its tail to
protect his face. He threw up his hands
and shouted for help. This was appar
ently the opportunity the snake sought,
for it rapidly wound itself closer around
Diamond's neck and put on the pres
sure. Diamond found his wind being
shut off and the slimy body about his
neck drawing tighter.
Mr. Siotkin rushed to his rescue and
seized the snake by the head. He was
obliged to almost kill the reptile before
it released fts hold on Diamond. Siotkin
tore the snake loose and it fell to the
floor and started for the monkeys' cage.
