Ihe train was cheered as It left the Union station, at Indianapolis, at tl o'clock, and the day's work began before the party had gotten fairly out of town. At the Belt Crossing, west of the city, seveial hundred people had gtuhered and the train was stopped for them. Harrison was lustily cheered as he apiieared at the rear platrorm Among other things, he said: "You will not exiwet me to speak, per haps, further than to say to you that this is another camp dgnlu which very singular notions are being promulgated.

No time was wasted with in troductions, as moments were precious. Gen. Hurrisou appeared and was given an ovation. He plunged at once Into, his subject. He reviewed tlie fight the Democratic party has been making for cheapness, while the Republicans have been contending that fair prices wore more conducive to prosperity and happiness, and called attention to the entire change of front made by the Democrats in tills campaign. CHANGE OF FRONT. They had abandoned the fight for cheap ness, and were now declaring that the people want higher-priced things. They had succeeded ill their campaign In 1892, had elected a President and Congress of their own way of thinking and had brought in an era of cheap things. The farmer hud gotten the cheapest conts he had ever bought, and purchased them with the cheapest wheat he had ever sold. He declared that Mr. Bryan had been one of the most ultra of the fret traders who had brought about this con dition of things, and that If elected Prcsi uent would still advocate these same prin cinles. He appcaletl to the farmers of Indiana not to be tempted by the "rake" notion that they coultl make themselves ricli by declaring a halt dollar a dollar. The Amer ican people want what is honest and right, and he had no doubt that Indiana would stand In line with the common sense of the people and speak for integrity in public and private affairs.

The loyalty of ihe Re publican lundidute's former Congressional district was manifested at several plates by demonstrations Intended to touuttract the enthusiasm fur the Dtuiccratit nomi nee. The manner In which the supporters of the St. Louis ticket showed their political feelings was ihe s unc at every place vvhtre such demonstrations otcurred. At Wtlls vnlle, the Hrst town within the district at which Mr. Bryan spoke, the attempt to offset any influence his appearante and speech inighlhave, was particularly marked rELLOW PREDOMINATED. Yellow badges, yellow neckties, yellow hat bands, with yellow streamers tied to brooms, and yellow flags were numtrous. Cheers for McKlnley vvtre heard frequcutly and Mr. Bryan's address vvas interrupted so often that be finally turned on his auuoyers and addressed some very -vigorous remarks Intended for thtir benefit. This rallied his supporters aud they cheett-d luni with a heartiness that made ului understand his standard hail still plenty of followers. It was the same at East Liverpool, where golden huc-d per sonal adornment was practiced to quite as large au extent- Bellairt- and Martin's terry also furnished gatherings in which the Insignia ot the gold standard was prominently displayed. The earlier part of Mr. Bryan's trip to day brought him lo places along the west bank ot the Ohio river. He made a little roiay into Pennsylvania, and" spoke at Rochester and New Brighton in that State.

Gold badges w ere notice-able In the throng of G,000 at Steubeuvllle, but not nearly- so numerous aR nt Bridgeport and Martin's Ferry. Some young men who wore the yellow, however. Interrupted the speech several times and Mr. Bryan answered their comments with some display- ()f feeling. "My friends," he said, "I nin surprised at these interruptions You show me a man that believes in a gold standard and I will show you a man who Is afraid ot public discussion, betause the gold standard dare not meet public discussion. We are leaving those who accuse us of being anarchists to Interfere with public meet ings mid to prevent discussion of a measure that concerns every man, woman and child in the United States. "A Republican platform, for the first time lu the history of this country, pro poses to suriender the right of self government and to delegate to foreign nations the right to determine what kind or a financial system we should have, and if Uiose who wear yellow badges want lo put a badge on that describes their con dition, let them have a card saying: 'We are American citizens, but we want for eign naUonsto take care or us." Then their badge will mean something." Mr. Bryan had been told that one of the generals had said at Sletlbeuvtlle, yester day, that the Democratic nominee had de clared in the House or Representatives that the pension roll was not a roll of honor.
