General Smith and Senator LoAge Among the Speakers. The republican campaign in Greater New York was opened last night by four great mass meetings. There were parades, music, and great enthusiasm at all the meetings. At Camp McKlnley, the headquarters of the republicans of the thirty-first assembty district. Temporary Chairman Goodwin in troduced Cornelius N. Bliss as permanent chaii man. Mr. Bliss, In his introductory speech, asserted that the welfare of the country demanded the re-election of Mr. McKlnley, for It would not do to place the reins of government in the hands of an in expt rienced man like Mr. Bryan. He con cluded by saying: "With such an administration as McKin ley's representing the American people, it Is not strange, considering the character of the opposition that the people have mani fested their confidence and faith in the election of McKinley and Roosevelt, and have not, perhafia, fully realized the nec essity of effort and work to maintain what they wish to hold. It is good to have faith. 'Faith Is the substance of things hoped for,' but faith without works is of no avail." Mr. Bliss was loudly applauded. Post master General Smit|( was then introduced and spoke. In part, as follows: , "Do the people realize that, great as would have been the shock caused by Bryan's election four years ago, his suc cess now would produce a far greater convulsion? Why? Because we have now so much more to lose. Because we would be plunged to the same depths from a far hinher level. In IKiKS we were already on a low level. More than two million work hitmen were idle. Mills were stopped and soup houses opened. Deposits in savings bunk* were reduced, showing that de positors were drawing on their savings to make up the loss of earnings. The loss In railroad values alone was more than two thousand million dollars. The total loss of that period of panic and depression was as great as that involved In the civil war. How is it now? If we fall now we shall fall from the heights of prosperity, j and the calamity will be greater. The success of Bryan would cause a great linancial and business convulsion, and some of his supporters recognize it." The remainder of Mr. Smith's speech was devo*ed to a discussion of the admin istration's i>olicy In the Philippines, and he closed with these words: "There is nothing in the Monroe doctrine to prevent us from acquiring territory on the other Fide of the globe and making it our own. But there Is everything in that doctrine to prevent us from undertaking to use it as a protection for territory there not our own. We exercise no protectorate over the countries of Central and South Amer ica. We have not set up their govern ment. We are not responsible for their acts. We have only said that Inasmuch as they are. on the American continent we would not permit their absorption by other countries. But we cannot make the Philippines independent and protect them from foreign absorption by that doc ( trine." Representative Sereno E. Payne and State Senator Elsberg also spoke. The meeting at Cooper t'nion was the largest of the four. Republicans of fifteen districts took part, and each district club paraded to the hall separately. General Francis V. Greene opened the proceedings. The address of President Schurman of Cornell was next on the program. He said in beginning: "The issue of the campaign is the main tenance of the prosperity of the people and the honor and good name of the nation." President Schurman attacked the free silver Idea, and after devoting considerable space to this he plunged into the subject of "imperialism," and declared that it was a bogy. He asserted that President Mc Klnley had handled the Philippine question In a masterly manner and that it would never do to give up the islands. Senator Lodge was the principal speaker at the meeting at Durland's riding acad emy, under the auspices of the West Side I Republican Club. He said that the repub lican party was not on the defensive in this campaign, wive In the sense that Grant, In attacking VIcksburg. ,was defending the onion. In this campaigu the republicans had no apology to offer. He then recalled the circumstances under which the treaty with Snain was entered into and ratified, and said that nineteen democratic and populist senators voted for its ratification, urged thereto by Mr, Bryan. "Therefore, he added, "they share the responsibility with us. I am not anxious to have the re sponsibility divided. As a republican. I am willing to accept the -full share of the re aponsibility, but it does not lie well in the mouth? of those whose votes were essen tial to the ratification of that treaty to at tack us for what they themselves assisted lflThe local republicans above the Harlem river gathered at Zeltner's Hail on 3d ave nue to the number ?1 several 'thousands, drawn by the announcement that Senator Joseph B. Foraker of Ohio was to sp*ak. At a late hour word was Teoeived that Sen ator Foraker was 111 and confined to his bed at the Fifth Avenue Hotel. In his ab sence the chief speaker was General Stew art L. Woodford, former minister to Spain. THE PACIFIC COAST. Mr. Kinic Found the People Nearly All for MeKlnley. Mr. William B. King, who has been absent In the far west on legal business for a month past, reports a very favorable outlook for republican success In that sec tion. "In California, where I was for about two weeks," he said to a Star re porter today, "I made a point to talk about politics with as many representative peo ple of different classes as possible. It Is a curious fact that durln?*-that time I found only one man who said that he was going to vote for Bryan. He was a saloon keeper in the little town of Castrovllle and bad Bryan's picture hanging over his bar. A distinguished officer of the Department of Justice, who spent some time In Seattle and San Francisco, told me that his ex perience had beefi the same; that he had seen just one Bryan badge worn on the coast. I was in Utah at the time of the republican convention there, and it was acknowledged that It had nominated the strongest ticket possible. The general opin ion was freely expressed that the chances were decidedly in favor of the republi cans In the state. In Wyoming I saw both Senator Warren and the chairman of the state republican committee. They are both sanguine of success, and the latter told me that while he could not give any figures at the present time, a substantial majority for MeKlnley In the state might be counted on." SUPPLIES STIlJi ON TRANSPORTS. Chaffee'n Troops AwsltlnK Result of Diplomatic Negotiation*. The quartermaster's supplies for subsist ing the army In China are nearly all at Taku, but are still aboard the transports. They have not been unloaded because It was expected the army of Gen. Chaffee | would soon be on Its way to the Philippines. The supplies are still held there. No defi nite orders have been sent to Gen. Chaffee, j He has been told to hold himself in readi ness to execute orders to withdraw, and he is now waiting. It Ib stated at the War Department that the whole matter is now in the hands of the State Department, and orders to Gen. ChafTee are held in abey ance until the negotiations of the State De- | partment with the foreign powers determine what shall be done. . . , ?,* ' Naval Orders. Commander R. P.

Consul General Gueotber of Frankfort says In a report to the State Department: "The German agriculturists have express ed the wish to have a meteorological signal service established, and the German govern ment Is Inclined to comply. A meeting of government officials and meteorological and agricultural authorities is soon to take \ place at Hamburg to discuss the introduc tion of a telegraphic service for German agriculture."

Fined for Hlrical Sale of Beer. Special Corr?ipoudenoe of The livening St?r. HYATTSVILLE, Md? September 15, 1900. F. O. Hagan, who dispenses beer and soft drinks through this county contiguous to the District, was yesterday arrested by H. O. Emmons, superintendent of the Anti Saloon League of Maryland. It hi alleged that Hagan, who was delivering some soft drinks to one of the stores in this village, was approached by Emmons, who said he wanted to get something. Hagn handed him out three or four bottles of ginger ale. Em mons replied he wanted lager, and the ale was exchanged for the kind of drink want ed, for which Emmons paid. Hagan was Immediately arrested by Emmons on the charge of selling lager beer without a li cense. He was taken before Justice Carr and was fined $25 and costs. J. C. Gould of Chattanooga. Tenn., was yesterday awarded the contract of Install ing water works for the vil'age by the town council for the sum of $23,450. The price covers the Installation of the works com plete except the cost of the w?U? THE SOCIAL WORLD Fashionable Home-Comings Few and Far Between. NOT OFF FOB THE FIDE REGIONS Passing Mention of Two Weil Known Washington Matrons. PERSONAL NOTES The social detachment of the summer travelers is not making any undue haste in returning to the capital, although halt of the first autumn month has passed. The breath of the summer has lingered so long that the few days of lowered temperature are regarded as only temporary. The dead ly dullness, therefore, that has been the characteristic feature of the past three or four months has at least as many weeks ahead yet safe from interruption. No en tertainment, save probably family feasting at a wedding, are booked for earlier dates than November, and certainly not then un til after election. As the curtain has been rung down at Newport and Bar Harbor for the season, the dwellers there who must have change and variety are off for the Hot Springs or Asheville for a week or two of recuperation before opening their coun try nouses or going to Lenox to take part in the gayety which usually marks October there. More pleasant ways of filling up the gap could hardly be devised, and departures are noted daily. In fact, outdoor life for the next month will be the main joy of ex istence, and if one can have it among friends and acquaintances, or In places big enough to get away from too much socia bility, life would seem ranged along pleas ing lines. Mr. and Mrs. Westinghouse are the most prominent among the Washington residents at Lienox, their neighbors being largely New York and New England families. Of the diplomatic circle enjoying the charms of ex istence at Lenox the Italian ambassador and Baroness Fava are already there, and several other foreigners who have been at Bar Harbor will join them shortly. Mrs. A. C. Barney can take considerable credit to herself for giving a new trick to the Bar Harbor gayety of the past sum mer. She usually achieves what she starts out to do, and now having two daughters, both particularly gifted with the same talent, success is doubly sure. It would be pleasant news to Washington society If the Barneys were to return here for the coming winter, but as they could hardly be happy outside of their own home, now the residence of the Secretary of War, it Is not likely that they will alter their plans, which have been said to include another absence in Europe. Mr. and Mrs. Richard Townsend's house on Massachusetts avenue so rapidly nears completion that speculation as to the gorgeousness of future entertainments there are in order. There Is not likely to be for many years anything as splendid nor as spaciously built here and something out of the common must surely mark that interval. Foreign decorators have been giving the finishing touches all summer to the inter ior, and their work is still progressing. Mrs. Townsend remained here very late, in consequence and will probably be among the first of her set to get hack to town for the autumn. It is understood the mansion will be ready for occupancy this fall. Atlantic City has been very gay the last few weeks and a number of beautiful lun- j cheons and dinners have been given.
