propriate tribute to the memory of the
Alee President.
In the army, the observance of the oc

in addition to the half-masting of the
flag, salutes of nineteen guns will be

abroad, and at every naval station of

to-morrow's election with the assurance
that every effort will be made to prevent

The greatest excitement prevails among
the Liberals over the discovery that Gen.
Monteagudo, the commander of the Cu
ban army, has ordered every army post
to communicate to-morrow as soon as
possible after the polls close the result
of the balloting. The Liberals declare
this Is Indisputable evidence that the

John Hays Hammond, president of the

New Tork. Oct TO. An appeal by Will
lam Jennings Bryan to the people of
the United States to support the Demo
cratic candidates was made jrabllo to
day by the Democratic National Com
mlttee. In this appeal Mr. Bryan says
In part:
'On the eve of another Presidential
election, with the day for choosing a
successor to President Taft but a few
days distant, I find the outlook for
Democratic success bright, indeed. In
no States that I have- visited have I
found any Indications that the electoral
vote will be given to either Taft or
Roosevelt. Democratic success seems
as absolutely certain as any thine human
''lean be. Everywhere hope Is ascendant
and the very air seems surcharged with
the spirit ot approaching victory. Of all
Presidential years within the past score
this seems essentially to be Democracy's
year, and the only danger of falling
short In this respect lies In overoon-
fldence. During the remaining days ot
the campaign every Democrat should be
on his mettle and should work with re
newed energy and enthusiasm for the
sucess of the ticket-national. Stats,
and Congressional.
"While we have had a great deal to
overcome, our cause seems to have made
such agisting progress as to furnish sub
stantial ground' upon which to build a
logical hope of triumph an along tba line.

"It Is. not strange that the voters of

Effect of Sherman's Death.
Jn conjunction with discussion of th
Vice President's death, official Washing
ton yesterday speculated widely upon the
effect which his demise would have upon
the government and Senatorial proced
ure. The Constitution, which provide
for successors to the Presidency, eva
unto the ninth generation." makes no
such prolslon for the Vice Presidency,
so that the United States will be with
out a secondary head until March 4 next.
This Is the third time this had hap
pened within the past decade and a half,
Garrett A. Hobart balng died in 18! and
Theodore Roosetelt hating become Pres
of noise and bluster, but. on the whole,
one of sober attention and an apparent
deslru on the part of the voters to csre
fuly weigh the lasues and to exercise
their God-given Intelligence and pre
rogative in settling the great questions
of moment that now confront the people
ot these United States. In this attitude
Of the people I can see but one thing.
and that is the election ot Gov. Wilson

New Tork. Oct SI. Like a pCet
guiding a ship into port Woodrow
Wilson looked out upon the rising tide
of Democracy boiling and swirling
In Madison 8quare Garden to-night
confident aad serene.
Chanalnsr the fla-ure. the anaHniBed
which Is popularly supposed to typify
Democracy, came rlcht baok at tha
Bull Moose with an added Mole. Wed
nesday night's scenes at the Garden
were duplicated with some little ad
denda. Moat Madison Sauara Qardan
political demonstrations areTallke. The
crowd Jams in and there are speeches
by the leaders and cheering, tbe exact"
duration of which Is accurately kept
bt tne sisiisucians.
But there comes a time when the
cheer of expectancy and hope dies
away when the "with you In victory
or defeat" note Is dimmed and silenced
by the shrill, swift swelling note of
confident victory which splits tha air.
Such a note rose and swelled In In
creasing volume In the Garden to-night
when Woodrow. Wilson loomed above the
monster crowd on the platform, tore Its
way upward and out across Madison
Square and went echoing across the con
tinent Bis Mall Crowded.
If It be true that the Garden will hold
1W0 people at a pinch, that many were
crowded within Its capacious wans to
night long before the first distinguished
speaker appeared upon the platform. Out
side many more tarried to cheer the ar
rh Ing and departing leaders.--. Everywhere
there was enthusiasm. It was a meeting,
moreover, distinctly of those who at pres
ent have the say In decldinr eUrtlnrx a
business meeting, so to speak.; at which
there was a fair sprinkling of the fair sex.
uui iv iexs 01 went wan graced the Bull
Moose meeting of the night before, and
when the hour for the cheering came it
was tbe great body cf the men. not in any
particular section of the auditorium, but
In every portion of the house, who rose ea
t.Ujo and. fun-throated, with tbe thun
der of K.00O feet j-eaoundlng on the floors,
with myriads of Saga-madly waving, cut
looae that roar of victory which caused
the rafter of the old Garden to sway un
der the strain.
This came when Mr. Wilson stepped to
the front of the platform aad the crowd
got Its first full-faced view of tha stand
ard bearer. For exactly one hour the
tumult continued, rising and falling at
Intervals dying out at one place only to
be renewed again in another. And al
ways it waa the deep, steady, confident
cheer of tbe victor who sees the enemy's
flag lowered.
Here once more the confident note ot
lctory was sounded. It was not a long
rielherance. Mr. Wilson went directly
to the point There has been talk that
the prosperity of the country will be
affected by his election. He nailed the
calumny In characteristic fashion.
"Do the gentlemen In WaU Street bet
S to 1 on their own destruction"' hs
asked, amid howls of approval from the
crowd. "And do they go smiling and
complacent to their businesses when
they expect a deluge next weekr
This he called his "answer in a nut
shell" to the rallying cry of panic upon
which the enemy has elected to make Its
last stand.
Otherwise, his address -was a calm
presentation of the Issues upon which
the Democracy has been fighting.
No Jarrlna- Xote.
There wss not a Jeering note. Given
under the auspices of the National
League of Business Men. tbe admission
was free, and all Democracy was there
to see and hear and cheer' They arrived
early, some of the faithful as early aa
4 o clock In the afternoon, aad ther
stayed until the last note of tbe final
speech had been drowned out in the last
sah o ot cheering with which tbe meeting
was Drougnt 10 an ena.
Thomas A. Mulry presided, and durinc
the course of the evening not only did
the victors -scenting hosts give unbridled
play to their enthusiasm for Wilton, but
WlUlam Sutler. Democratic candidate for
Governor of New York, too, received the
benediction of a similar ovation, as did
also Martin Glynn, his running mate.
And last, but not least, there was ac
corded a demonstration of unbounded
proportions to 0car Underwood, chair
man of the Was and Means Committee,
who beguiled the last few minutes of
the meeting before the storm with tha
coming of Woodrow Wilson upon tha
scene w Ith a brief speech.
Detectives Fail to Find Clew
Miss Mary Lainhart's
Detectives have failed to find any trace
of the daring footpad who snatched a
small pocketbook which Miss Mary Laln
hart, of 92 Nineteenth Street Northwest
held In her hand as she was returning
home shortly after C o'clock on Wednes
day night ,
The pocketbook contained $6, but Miss
Lalnhart does not mind. Its loss near aa
much as the hysterical fright which fol

The young woman was In K near
Eighteenth Street when she was struck
In the back, presumably by a "man's first

around, s She hurried to her home and
