Col. Bryan Gives Advice to a
New Jersey Audience.
Trentcn, N. J., Oct. 26. At Burlington.
N. J., yesterday" Mr. Bryan was taken
from the car to a balcony a short dis
tance from the station. In his speech he
said In part:
"I was in a city the other day In New
Tork and I found that a great manufac
turer of agricultural implements had
notified his men that he would close up
his business if I wer elected and I told
them in that event that man was going
to allow- other men to do the work, be
er use there will be work to be done;
people will buy buggies under a Derao
. cratic administration for they will use
buggies in a republic. It Is only chariots
that they need in an empire."
A voice: "What will you do for the
eld soidiers?"
Mr. Bryan: "The first thing I will do
for the old soldiers after I am elected
win be to appoint a commissioner of
pensions more satisfactory to the sol
cier than the present, one."
Mr. Bryan made two speeches in
Trenton, the first in T.iyljr's opera
houe and the second at an open air
meeting. He was splendidly received at
both places. Responding to the opera,
house greeting-, where the Democratic
clubs of the state were holding their
annual convention, Mr. Bryan said:
"I am not vain enough to think that
your enthusiasm is a y-ersonal matter
for the individual counts but little. The
j-rineiple is everything, and a man is
only useful as he can aid in the tri
umph of a principle and I know you
art not here because you .feel an interest
in me. but because you feel an interest
In yourselves and in your children's
children. You are here because you are
opposed to the policies for which the
Republican party stands. Tou are here
because you want a change in the
policies and in the methods of govern
ment. The Republican party says every
thing is ail right; that the farmer "is
happy; that the laboring man has a full
dinner paii. and that nobody ought to
complain of present conditions. Our re
ply is. ail rifrht; let every man who is
satisfied with his condition, who be
lieves he is enjoying his fair share of
the earth's blessings and the govern
ment's protection, who thinks that
things are all right, vote the Republican
ticket. 1 am perfectly content to draw
the line and let all those who think that
there is no necessity for better things
vote the Republican ticket if I can have
the votes of all those who believe things
can be made better by better laws."
Continuing Mr. Bryan said that the
Republican party was appealing to all
classes. ;o!ng among the farmers, he
said, the Republican party talked wheat
when wheat is up. oats when oats are
tip: "and when potatoes are up,'" he
Baid. "every Republican orator goes
about with his pockets full of pota
toes." Speaking of Republican appeals to the
laboring classes. Mr." Bryan said the la
boring man could not te considered weil
to do as long as he was unable to send
his children to school and had to keep
them in the factories to help to make a
living.
"Cnder present conditions." he said,
"the laborer is receiving and retaining
every year less and less of the wealth he
creates, while the men who speculate in
That wealth are accumulating fonunes
that are a menace to the independence of
the citizens."
"The trust." said Mr. Brvan, "dis
courages inventive genius, for all men
who hare skill in one occupation are
tinder one man then they hang upon
him. It is the hope of independence; it
is tne hope that you can some dav be
r?ar ?n master, that stimulates "peo
ple to highest endeavors: and when you
take this hope out of the human breast
and piar.t Despair in its place, vou start
downward toward the level of thf Dark
Ages, and it is bad for the laboring man
for , laboring man has genius and
iiiil and his employer does r.ot recognize
his skill ard gr.;us. another eir.piover
will: but when there is but on em
ployer, then genius is at a discount and
vn-in-law will do as well as a genius
It is contrary to our political science and
to the welfare of a people like ours, for
when thousands, of hundreds of thou
sands, of men are employed by one man
and dare not leave his employment for
fear of having no use for the skill they
have spent a lifetime in acquiring. I saV
when you have such a condition it is "not
a healthful one."
Mr. Bryan again stated his position
on the question of the standing armv.
saying that we do not want a big army,
'but cltixens who are wiilir.g to fight
when we need fightrs and wh are then
willing to go back to their avocations in
private life when the war is over."
Ho king had, aver undertaken to cre
ate a big army at one time, and Mr.
Bryan predicted the gradual increase of
our own army.
Referring to the Philippines, he said:
"I would rather the Filipinos would live
and love us than that we should sell
coffins to them when they die hating us."
"They say," he went on, "that they
will treat our colonies as Kngland treats
hers. God forbid." He then spoke of
England's administration in India, where
he said millions were starving because of
England's oppressive system of taxa
tion. Closing his speech Mr. Bryan made
an earnest appeal for campaign work
until the close of the campaign and ask
ed his supporters not to bet on results,
saying in part:
"If you have any money to spare, put
it in the campaign fund instead of bet
ting with it. Do not try to beat the Re
publicans at their game. When you bet
you bet your money; when a trust mag
nate bets he bets other people's money.
A newspaper friend of mine gave some
other advice the other day. He told tha
Democrats that if they would put their
money in the campaign fund they would
get satisfaction enough out of success
to make them willing to spend themoney
I that way; and if we lost it was no grati
! fication to give the Republicans Demo
'. cratic money as well as a victory in this
campaign, w e can not go to the great
corporations and ask them to contribute,
because we do not intend that they
shouid make it back out of the people.
We have got to make enough of a peo
ple's fight and you who are interested in
this fight ought to support the fight, not
only with your votes but with your
work, and w ith the money that you can
spare."
Mr. Bryan's outdoor meeting in Tren
ton was a tremendous success, both in
point of attendance and enthusiasm on
the part of the crowd. At this point he
spoke standing in his carriage and said:
"i am willing to risk the issues in this
campaign in the hands of the people. If
tomorrow the voters were permitted to
go to the polls and write on their ballots
their opinions on the questions before
the country with no one; to intimidate,
I have no doubt that w:e would carry
this country by a popular majority such
as no ticket has ever received in the
United States, The only question to my
mind is what effect will be produced by
the coercion that is now being attempt
ed by those who stand at the head of
great corporations,
"I went to Auburn, X. T., the other
day and I learned that the head of a
large manufacturing establishment has
threatened to close his works in case I
was elected. I do not know how many
threats like that will be made. I do
not know what effect such threats will
have.
"I ask you w hen will you be stronger
to fight this battle than you are now?
If after ail this period of boasted pros
perity you have not laid up enough
money to stand an idleness of a week,
don't you think you had better vote for
some party that will give you a better
chance than that to lay up something
for a rainy day?"
M'CLINTOCK ROBBED.
Well Known Physician Loses
Money and Diamonds.
This city seems to be the favorite place
for burglars to operate. Last night the
third of a series of big robberies occurred.
The home of Dr. J. C. McClintock. at 1313
Fillmore street, was entered and money
and valuables to the amount of $4S0 were
taken.
Dr. McClintock said that he retired last
night at about 11 o'clock and that he
put his clothes on a chair in the room.
In his shirt was a diamond valued at $25
in his vest pocket wrre SKO in bills and in
another pocket was a watch which was
valued at $125. There was some small
change in the trousers pocket; he thinks
about $.V When he arose this morning he
found that his clothes were missing and
a search for them was made. They were
found in the bath room, but the money
and valuables were gone.
The bi:rtr;ar had entered the house
through the northwest window and hid
taken the clothes to the bathroom where
he would have plenty of time to go
through them. Xt another things in the
house was disturbed. None of the draw
ers in the dresser had been opened and
it was evident that the burglar was sat
isfied with what he found in the cloth
ing, for it would have been easy to have
taKen many valuables in the house had
the robber so desired.
The police were notified and went to the
house this morning, but they have found
no clue to the burglars.

KANSASHEVS.
Col. Little Explains a Statement
Made.
Refutes a Charge That He Told
a Falsehood.
REFERS TO AGUINALDO
Had Said That Chief Desired
War to Cease.
Quotes General Otis' Telegram
to Show Correctness.
Salina, Oct. 6. The Union, publishes
the following:
When I spoke at Salina recently I call
ed attention to the fact that Immediate
ly following the opening of hostilities at
Manila, Aguinaldo had sent a message
to Gen, Otis desiring a cessation of hos
tilities. I have been shown a copy of the
Salina Republican-Journal discussing
my speech and denying the statement
which I had proved by reading the
statement of Gen. Reeves and others.
The Republican-Journal quoted a dis
patch, from Gen. Otis which they claim
ed sustained their position. Gen. Otis
is the general who so many times tele
graphed home that the war was practi
cally over so that we can take any
statement of his with some degree of
caution. The dispatch which the Republican-Journal
quoted from Otis
closed with the statement that his ear
lier dispatches were misleading. Under
date of February 9, 1S&9. five days after
the fighting began. Gen. Otis reported to
the war department:
"Aguinaldo apples for a cessation of
hostilities and a conference. Have de
clined to answer."
This can be found in the records by
anybody. It is not a question as to be
ing misleading. Either this dispatch I
have just quoted states a fact or it
does not state a fact. If it does, then
Gen. Ots has demonstrated the correct
ness of my statement. If it does not,
then Gen. Otis' testimony is of no value.
The statement is correct, however, and
pretty much everybody who has studied
the subject at all knows that it is true.
The editor of the Republican-Journal
"characterizes my statement as a false
hood," Of this I shall only say that I
very much regret that the emergencies
of the campaign should be so severe as
to force him to forget that be is a gen
tleman. I have tha honor to remain,
very truly yours,
EDWARD C. LITTLE.
IMP TO THE FRONT.
Game Tattle Mare Runs a Great Race
In New York.
New Tork. Oct. 26. Imp won the Maho-
pac handicap at the Empire race track
Thursday. She was giving pounds to her
three opponents, but was confidently
backed at odds. The race was at a mile
and a sixteenth, and as usual she went
out to make the running. She fairly tip
toed her feet at the end of seven" fur
longs and came home alone under wraps.
Bums never moving on her. Kamara and
Belle of Troy alternated in second place to
the stretch, when the latter stopped and
Kamara just lasted long enough to get
the place by a. head from Oneck Queen.
The first race went to Unmasked, the
favorite. Musette made the running to
the stretch, when Unma-sked came on
pnd won cleverly from Beau Ormonde.
The second race was a four horse affair
with Dolando at odds on. Olea. the rank
outsider at 15 to 1. won, however, after
making ail the running, giving the race
a bad look. Shaw on The Xmaz.n was the
only boy who appeared to ride to win, and
he was second but was disqualified for
being three pounds overweight, the boy's
explanation being that he put on a sweat
er after weighing in. He was fined $3X)
and set down for the balance of the meet
ing. CROWD FOR STANLEY.
Governor Warmly Welcomed
at
Hutchinson.
Hutchinson. Kan., Oct, 26. One of the
best meetings that has been held In this
city during this campaign was addressed
by Governor Stanley in the Auditorium
last evening. The meeting was preceded
by a demonstration participated in by
three companies of rough riders and oth-r
clubs, among which was the Old Sol
diers' McKinley and Roosevelt club, 100
strong.
The Auditorium, with a seating capac
ity of 3.0'. was filled and the speech of
Governor Stanley was greeted with round
after round of applause. He referred
briefly to the state administration, but the
most of his speech was devoted to the
discussion of national issues. He recited
the predictions of Bryan four year3 ago
as to what the condition of the country
would be if McKinley was eiected and
then showed how those predictions had
been proven false. On the question of
expansion he made a strong argument for
the retention of the Bhilippines not only
from a commercial standpoint, but from
the point of the extension of civilization.
He quoted freely from state reports to
prove the present prosperity of the state
and closed his speech by an appeal to the
patriotism of the people that fairly
brought the people to their feet.
At the conclusion of the governor's ad
dress R, B. Welsh spoke for a short time.
CLARK A SUICIDE.
Young Nortonville Fanner Found
Dead In a Cornfield.
Atchison. Kan., Oct. 25. Commodore
Clark, son of George Clark, living three
miles southeast of Xortonviile. committed
suicide last night by shooting mmseif
twice. He was 20 years of ae. After
eating supper yestsrday evening Clark
left the house. He did not return and
a search was made for him about the
premises, but no trace of him could be
found. This morning an investigation re
vealed the fact that Clark had taken his
revolver. His dead body was found in a
cornfield about 7 o'clock.
Clark had shot himself twice. The body
was removed to the Clark home and the
Jefferson csunty coroner notified. The
cause of young Clark's suicide is supposed
to have been despondency because of the
illness of his mother, although he had
previously shown no disposition to take
his own life. George Clark, his father.
Is a widely known farmer.
FUSION AT EI. DORADO.
Butler, Little and Leedy Are the
Orators.
El Dorado. Kas., Oct. 26. Thursday
was a big day for the fusion forces in
this county and will be the last general
demonstration of the campaign. In the
afternoon Senator Marion Butler of
North Carolina made a speech to a large
audience in the city park. He read from
quotations by Abraham Lincoln claim
ing that the Republicans have discarded
the form of doctrine as laid down by
him. He said in closing that in Oregon
the negro is disqualified and that before
the Republicans make fun of his state
they had better take the beam out of
their own eyes.
In the evening the opera house was
filled to hear the patriotic and stirring
address by CoL Ed Little and Ex-Governor
Leedy. The hall was niceiy deco
rated, the Leon band furnished music,
while the Bryan club was out in full
force. The meeting was very enthu
siastic. Ur. Little made a convincing

with an excellent speech in which he

a pointed and instructive way. He out

regiment for the Spanish war, giving
them colored officers, which the Repub
licans had never done.

Breidenthal, though hs was nominated
for governor by three different parties
in this city last summer, made his first
visit here Thursday on a political mis
sion. In the afternoon he was escorted
through town and met the business
men. In the evening the Bryan and
Breidenthal club paraded the streets in
his honor, giving a pyrotechnical dis
play. The opera house would not con
tain all who went to hear Sir. Breiien
thal's address, and he was given an en
thusiastic reception. His speech was a
confidence inspiring one. full of fine ar
gument, conservative, and not abusive,
characteristic of the man. He spoke
pointedly on matters of state govern
ment that effect every taxpayer and
voter.
Oswego. Kas., Oct. 2S. The greatest
political demonstration of the campaign
was held in this city Wednesday night.
This is the home county of John Brei
denthal, the fusion candidate for gov

speakers of the evening. A fine display
was made by the Oswego flambeau club.
Judge Jackson opened the speaking at
the opera house and upon the demand
cf the crowd that could not obtain ad
mittance Mr. Breidenthal repaired to the
court house, which was soon filled to
overflowing with hundreds stiil clamor
ing for admittance and an opportunity
to see and hear the next governor.
The crowd here became so clamorous
that the meeting was adjourned to the
court house grounds, where a thousand
people listened to Mr. Breidenthal for
an hour, when Judge Jackson arrived
and took his place while he returned to
the opera house and talked for an hour
and a half.
