Thus Seeks Revenge.
London, Oct. 27. The preparations
here to welcome on their return to Eng
land from South Africa the few hun
dred men nho constitute the City Im
perial volunteers have entirely monopo
lized England's attention this week, ban
ishing from notice matters of interna
tional import. Although this about half
a regiment of young Londoners, brokers,
clerks and others, has not performed
any very heroic feats, thousands of peo
ple are pouring into London in order to
witness their home-coming, and win
dows along the line of march have been
Bold at prices almost equal to those de
manded at the time of the jubilee pro
cession. In addition, decorations and
illuminations costing many thousands of
pounds have beer, prepared, and busi
ness and even traffic will be suspended
practically the whole day when they ar
rive, and Monday night wiil doubtless
witness a repetition of the Mafeking
carnival. It is pointed out that the in
tense patriotism which this is supposed
to signify would be better appreciated
were the returning soldiers more repre
sentative of the forces in the held, or if
th-r wrre not hundreds of colonial vol
unteers who have fought in South Af
rica walking the streets of London un
honored, unnoticed and uncared for.
This circumstance has caused some bit
ter reflections to be cast on the mother
country by the colonial sections in Lon
don, the Justice of which has been ac
knowledged by several liberal-minded
organs, while the regular army men are
not too pleased that the "cream of pub
lic enthusiasm' over the return of the
troops should be secured by a small
body of volunteers, which it is freely as
serted cannot compare wiLh seeraj of
the regular tinits.
The rext big celebration "will probably
occur Monday, November 10, when Gen
eral EuHer is due at Southampton. He
w-ill receive the freedom of several cities
and will doubtless have a triumphant
progress, though the reception which
wiii be accorded to Lord Roberts will,
of course, eclipse the celebration which
w-ill attend Bulier's return to England.
Lord Roberts is expected in December,
and the same month a representative of
the Associated Press learns another dis
tinguished Britisher. Cecil Rhodes, will
return from South Africa. In pursuance
of his determination to adopt a self
obliterating policy until the war is en
tirely over, it is likely that Mr. Rhodes'
tome-coming will be quieter than that
of the most insignificant private of the
City Imperial volunteers.
In the midst of the preparations for
celebrating the return of the victorious
soldiers it is not astonishing that the
people generally fail to realize how ex
tremely costly and long drawn out has
been the struggle in South Africa. Sta
tistics carefully prepared up to date by
one of the largest insurance companies
ehow that proportionately more British
ers were killed than the Germans lest
in the war with France of 1S70-'71, w hile
the proportion of those who succumbed
to disease was three times as great.
Among the rank and file the Germans
had 0 per cnt. more men killed, but
from disease Great Britain suffered 63
per cent, heavier than the Germans.
This increase is of such magnitude that
even the climatic differences fail to ac
count for it. It is asserted that had
Great Britain put in the field as many
troops as Germany did against France
and maintained proportionate casual
ties her mortality would have reached
9 369 men.
It is asserted that Major Gooii
Adams. the British commissioner in
Bechuanaland wili be made governor of
the Orange River colony. Gen. Buller
Is slated to resume command of Alder
shot. Gen. Kitchener, it is said, will
temporarily succeed Ivrd Roberts in
command of the troops in South Africa,
but will, it is further asserted be even
tually rvplaced by Major General Lyttle
ton and Kitchener will then te likely
to come home and assume the duties of
adjutant general.
Lady William Beresford (f-irmrly
Lillian, Duchess of Marlborough! has
brought action against the young Duke
of Marlborough to recover the money
which she spent in improving Blenheim
palace during the lifetime of the last
cuke. The matter came up originally
when the present duke succeeded to ir e
title, but owing to the friendly relations
exis-ing between the duke and his step
mother, it was temporarily arranged.
Fince the duke's marriage to Consueio
Vanderbiit. it is reported an estrange
ment has gruwn up between Lady
Beresford and her stepson. On mcr;
than one occasion, it is said the young
American duchess snubbed her country
woman iLaiy Beresford was formerly
Sirs. Louis Hammersiey of New York)
until the latter determined she could not
submit to such treatment anv longer
and she now asks the law to compel her
stepson to return the amount she spent
on Blenheim.
Another aristocratic- lawsuit, which
will shortly be heard in camera is the
application of the Marchioness of An
glesey, to have her marriage to the mar
quis, who is head of the Paget family
declared null. They only became man
and wife in 159S. but it was strictly a
iiarriage of convenience between cous
ins arranged for the sake of inheritin
property which otherwise.could not have
teen touched by either of them. They
both agreed to live their own lives. Ap
parent!!', this extraordinary arrange
ment did not work well in more wavs
than one. It is asserted that the marauts
agreed to give his wife 3,000 the first
year and i6.0"0 the second year and so
on till the allowance reached 10.000 a
year. However, the alleged allowance
was stopped almost immediately. Lady
Ar.glesey, who describes herself ""other
wise Chetv.-ynd," her maiden name, now
wishes to get out of the bargain and it
is rumored, if successful she wili marry
CeuoC Herman von Hatzfeidt.

The Governor is In Especially
Good Spirits.
New York, Oct. 27. Governor Eoose
velt was up early today at the residence
of Mrs. Douglas Robinson, his sister, in
Madison avenue- Having taken break
fast the governor and Mrs. Roosevelt en
tered a carriage at 8:20 and escorted by
a platoon of 20 mounted policemen drove
to the Erie railroad ferry. In Jersey
City the governor entered his special car
to travel toward Binghamton, at which
city he is scheduled to arrive at 6:40

and short speeches delivered at Suffern,
Hiil Brook, Middletown, Port Jervis,
Shohola, Lackawaxen, Cochocton. Cali

and Great Bend.
At the Erie ferry In New Tork and
the railway station in Jersey City Gov
ernor Roosevelt was cheered by good,
sized crowds which had assembled to
see him.
Suffern, N. Y., Oct. 27. Governor
Roosevelt was in especially high spirits
today, which fact he attributed to his
satisfaction with the demonstration in
New York last night and the occurrence
of hi3 forty-third birthday. Coming
thither, when passing through Passaic,
the governor was cheered by a large
party of workmen employed in an iron
foundry. One of the men displayed a
large piece of brown paper on which
was inscribed in large black letters
"Teddy is O. K." At Paterson also there
was a large assembly of workmen, who
cheered the governor. At Suffern the
governor spoke briefly from the platform
of his car. He said:
"I appreciate you, the voters of the
future, coming here (referring to a little
company of boys with caps and cam
paign capes on and American flags in
their hands), and you guard the flag.
You guard it because you honor it- Now
let us of the older generation see to it
that it is honored.
Hillburn. N. Y., Oct. 27. Governor
Roosevelt in going to the platform from
which he was to speak at this place
passed the ranks of a campaign club
garbed like sailors, and said:
In the first place I notice the com
pany which receives me has Uncle
Sam's uniform on it. We are not afraid
of Uncle Sam's uniform not at all. The
Malay bandits and Chinese boxers are
afraid of it. but we are not. Mr. Bryan
says you haven't your share of pros
perity. The country as a whole cer
tainly has prospered. In 1S63 none of
us were prosperous. Today there is a
high average of" prosperity, and your
new iron works here is proof of it."
Middietown, N. Y-, Oct. 27. Governor
Roosevelt spoke here in the opera house
to an audience which completely filled

Captain "I may as we!! lay up the old packet if
the seats and the standing -room, The
governor said in part :
"I have hitherto asked Mr. Bryan In
vain to answer whether If elected he will
pay the outstanding obligations in gold
or In silver; that is, whether it is the
secretary of the treasury or the credit
ors who have the right to choose the
coin in which to be paid. Mr. Bryan
having failed to answer -I will now
change the form of my question. On
February 14, 1S95, in the house of rep
resentatives, on the question of the gold
bond resolution Mr. Bryan spoke in part
as follows: I condense) We insist
that outstanding bonds are payable in
gold or silver, and that the United States
has the right to choose the coin. The
debtor always has the choice of the coin
where only one coin is mentioned. The
secretary of the treasury has the legal
right to redeem greenbacks and treasury
notes in silver and thus protect the peo
ple from the gold hoarders and gold ex
porters. We, should compel President
Cleveland to protect the government by
redeeming in silver when that is more
convenient. We believe that greenbacks
and treasury notes are redeemable in
either gold or silver at the option of the
"In speeches in the house of represen
tatives on December 22, 1S94. Mr. Bryan
said: 'The members of this congress
might just as well meet this question.
The present secretary of the treasury
(Mr. Carlisle) has construed the law to
mean that the option really applies to
the note holder, and the same principle
has been applied to the greenbacks. I
find the English language hardly ade
quate to express my fellings on that
subject. There is rot a lawyer that
would apply such a doctrine in anything
except finance. I am in favor (of the
construction) that the government has
the option and can exercise it to pay in
silver when it wants to. And if we have
it why not exercise it and not turn over
our finances to the control of those who
conspire to defeat the purposes of the
government.' N
"I now. ask Mr. Bryan whether his
views are still the same as they were
when eh made those two speeches, and,
if so, why he refuses to meet the ques
tion now when he then said that con
gress ought to meet it?"

Plot to Assassinate French
President Discovered.
Lyons, Oct. 27. The Nouveliste de
Lyon says a plot to assassinate Presi
dent Loubet has been discovered.
It appears that a working electrician
named Couterier burglariously entered
the electric company's premises at
Nimes, stealing 2,500 francs. He was
tracked to Orange, near Lyons, where
he was arrested. Documents found on
his person revealed, the paper says, an
anarchist conspiracy to assassinate
President Loubet on his coming visit to
Lyons to unveil a monument erected to
the memory of President Carnot.
Couterier is said to have committed
the burglary in order to obtain funds
to carry out his project. He has, it is
added, confessed to the police who are
now tracking his accomplices and
watching anarchists in order to prevent
any attempt to carry out the scheme.

Business of All Kinds Suspended
For the Day.
Parade is Reviewed by Number
of Republican Leaders.
Chicago, Oct. 27. Business was gen
erally suspended in Chicago today and
the city gave itself up to the "prosper
ity" parade. The prediction of pleasant
weather was amply fulfilled, the bright
ly shining sun and the soft and balmy
atmosphere, making an Ideal autumnal
day. Every industry of the city was
represented in the floats that Inter
spersed the procession, and each march
er wore a badge on which are the words
"McKinley was right'
Among those occupying the reviewing
stand were United States Senator Han
Da, chairman of the Republican commit
tee; Vice Chirman Henry C. Payne, na
tional committeemen, Stewart, New and
Kerens and United States Senators Cul
lom and Mason of Illinois. The parade
started at 10 o'clock. All along the route
the business houses and office buildings
were profusely decorated with the na
tional colors and streamers bearing the
'McKinley was right," "Sound money
and prosperity," and kindred inscrip
tions, together with representations of
the "Full dinner paiL"
At the head of the parade walked two
elephants bearing banners Inscribed:
"G. O. P. The real thing." Behind the
two pachyderms followed a donkey be
decked with bells and a clownish cap
upon its head. Farther back in the col
umn was a stuffed elephant drawn by
horses. This elephant lead the advance
of the Hamilton club, of Chicago, whica
escorted the Americus club of Pittsburg.
Another large delegation was the Keno
sha (Wis.) Republican Marching club, of
700 members.
In the line of parade were regiments
of men in uniform, drawn from sec res of.
business houses which together with the
banks, stock exchange, and board of
trade had closed for the occasion. These
marchers carried "full dinner pails" and
banners. The workmen's Republican
clubs conspicuous among which were
several representing the large packing
houses of the stockyards made a notable
showing as did the uniformed division
of the Cook County Republican legion
attired in Khaki under the leadership of
Congressman William Lorimer.Through
out the parade the industrial features
were unique. A notable section was the
Republican students league comprising
delegations from the various education
al institutions of Chicago.
The numerical strength of the parade
was variously estimated, but was appar
ently greater than the "Sound Money"
parade given on Chicago day, October
9. 1S96, which was regarded then as a
record breaker.

Senator Ilanna Says Bryan Is
Ignorant on That Subject.
Chicago, Oct. 27. The Auditorium was
filled last night with an immense audi
ence brought together to hear Senators
Hanna, of Ohio, and Burrows, of Michi
gan, under the auspices of the Republi
can Railroad employes of Chicago. The
audience was to a large extent composed
of railroad men and the chairman of the
meeting was Lot Brown, agent of the
Chicago, Burlington & Quincy railway.
Unbounded enthusiasm was manifested
throughout, the speeches and a large
crowd unable to find room in the Audi

"This is the greatest object lepson In

ever have seen. I am in sympathy with
the men gathered here even if they are
here under orders, as has been charged
by the opposition. But I think the only
coercion they have had is the coercion of
their own consciences.
"I saw the president and told him
about this meeting tonight, and he sends
greeting to the loyal railway men of Il
linois. Now imperialism and other col
lateral issues in this campaign are only
designed to bewilder and mislead the
voters.' It is an insult to the intelligence
of the people to think that they do not
know and understand the questions
which affect them so directly as those
which are the paramount issues In this
campaign. In sheer desperation Bryan
has abandoned real issues and descend
ed to the low plane of a demogegue and
is making his appeal on the issue of
class against class. That is an admis
sion of defeat.
. "If the business men thought there
was a possibility of Bryan being elected
you would see such a paralysis of busi

"As to the question cf trusts." he on
tlnued, "Bryan does not know what a
trust is and has advanced no arguments
as to the proper way to suppress them.
Bryan claims that evtry manufacturing
institution in the United States that
controls large interests is a trust. He
says his remedy would be to put upon
the free list every product of every in
dustry in a trust, if he had the power to
do this, except in the case of the Ice
trust and the cotton bale trust. If that
was done, every branch of manufactur

Denver Sports Nervous About the
Topeka Football Team.
Denver, Colo., Oct. 27. Keen Interest
is being manifested in the football game
to be played between Washburn col
lege of Topeka and the Denver Ath
letic club at Broadway park this after
noon. The Washburn team arrived yes
terday noon and have 'been resting
quietly at their hotel, getting over the
effects of their ride.
The day dawned with only a few
clouds in the sky and gives promise of
clearing up by the time the game is
Not very much betting has been in
dulged in as yet, the Denver people not
being able to get any kind of a line on
the Washburn players. Early in the
w eek a Topeka man placed a bet of $1W
to t.'OO on Washburn, but after that the
D. A. C. men became suspicious and re
duced the odds. It is not likely that
much of the Topeka money will be
placed before this afternoon at the park,
when the betting will probably be at
even money. The pool rooms have been
making the odds all the way from & to
3 on Washburn.
There are quite a number of enthusi
astic Washburn rooters here to encour
age the team and are backing them to
The extent of (2.000 or tr).0v0.
The game will be called at 3:30, west

A delegation of Elks left Friday night
for Denver and took with them J20 to
place on the Washburn-Denver Athletic
club football game this afternoon.
Aweek ago the D. A. C. backers offer
ed two to one on their team and a To

extent of J-ff'O. The betting then changed
and the Denver people would ofTr only
even money and $4"0 more wa covered
by Topeka people. Wherthe Washburn

to five to three on Washpurn, and a tele

the odds were three to one on Wash

place Washburn money and he was
wired last night to make be's at any
odds. The Washburn team will demand
that Charles Mills of Denver, who was
captain of the Yale team for several
years, be one of the officials to change
at the halves. Mills is recognizor as an

dated Pretoria, Friday, October 26. re
ferring to the fighting of General Bar
ton's column with General DeWet's
