V illlain Jrnaiom llryan In aarrrh at Knomiillr. Tea n., Sfpt. The Indianapolis lress takes occa sion to Un ture liepublieans for criti cising Olney, et al., for coming out in favor of Uryauism. It says, "np reason exists to doubt the honesty of motives actuating Oluey." There is noway to judge men's honesty" of motives except by their record. If their course is inconsistent nothing but a lack of intelligence can excuse them from the charge of dishonesty. This rule holds in every court of the land. No matter how high the stand ing of a witness may be the value of his testimony depends uKn its con sistency. If his story is inconsistent the jury will credit him with im proper motives and dishonesty. The more intelligent the witness is in such eases the less weight is given his testimony. If Mr. Olney were ignorant his inconsistency might, to some extent at least, be excused. Hut he is intelligent and has no right to claim immunity from the rules which apply toall witnesses in courts of justice or before the bar of public sentiment. He has gone back on his record, deliberately made, and his motives are justly impugned. To say that Republicans were greatly elated over the meeting at the rink last night is drawing it mildly. President Schurman's speech was altogether out of the or dinary. It was such a clear, candid and forcible presentation of the is sues involved in the present cam. paign that there was no possible room for doubt or misunderstanding on the part of any intelligent man o woman who heard the speech. His defense of President Mclvinley': Philippine policy was simply unau swerable. Speaking; as he did from the standpoint of an eminent scholar profound thinker, and, above all, one who as president of the l'hilippine commission had extraordinary faeil ities for studying this question, his words had the weight of authority and carried conviction to every mind capable of comprehending the sim plest proposition. The speech of Fred Landis, the young sycamore of the Wabash, was a happy conclusion to the magnificent meeting. I lis unique characterizations of Bryan and Uryani-sm set the audience wild with good-humored enthusiasm. His points were clean eut, sharp and stiuging and they went straight to the mark. Mr. Schurman's con servatively worded diagnosis of Bryan's glaring inconsistencies and dishonesty had well prepared the audience for the vollies of sarcasm, keen wit and scathing denunciation that Lahdis poured into the Popo- eratic camp like a rapid-firing gun. AT EARLHAM. The Speeches by the Gentlemen Who Visited There Yesterday. The speeches of Messrs. Schurtnan. Watson and Iandis, at Karlbam ccl- l-?e yesterday afternoon were mas I terpies of tact and appropriate ness. Each said just enough not to ! make himself tedious, and to interest the students and faculty. President Schurtnan talked briefly of the posi tion the college and university man is taking in relation to the practical affairs of life. He paid quite a con siderable compliment to the Karlham alumni who have made Cornell Uni versity their post graduate home. and said that not one had ever as ! sumed that relation that had not done credit to the institution they left and t tie one they had adopted. Mr. atson was happy with his remarks, carry- mg oui me iaea 01 jresiaent rchur man's talk by using that gentleman as an example of the use that was being made of the educational man in practical, national affairs, in his selection as a uieuioer oi ine t nnip- pine commission.

A theatrical event of more than ordiuary importance will take place in this city this evening, when the Olga Nethersole's version of Paudefs "Sapho' will be given in the den nett theater. Certain writers throughout the country have endeav ored tocreate a strong feeling against the plav, but the great American public has flocked to the theater inj which Miss Nethersole was playing! in order to see and judge for itself. -M OM AS IX THE CASE is attracting very appreciative audi ences and certainly deserves crowded houses. Heading the cast is the in imitable comedy team, Bartlett & May, the former tall, angular, a fine contortionist: the latter a winsome and diminutive little lady; both ex ceedingly clever.

The coming of this attraction re calls to the average theater-goers pleasant recollections of eccentric comedians and pret ty girls and a wealth of songs and dances in the latest up-to-date fashion belongs to that class of theatrical entertain ments called, for the lack of a better name, musical comedy, which, what ever shortcomings that may have, possesses at least one great advan tage their story is never so intricate or essential to tne success of the en tertainment that liberties cannot be taken with it to almost any extent so long as they result in improve ment. Consequently a first class musical comedy though appearing season after season under the same name is virtually a new show each year. Such is the ease with A liell Boy" which will apxiear at the Phillips" opera house on next Satur day night.

Collier gave his friends among the cottagers at Newport a hunt dinner dance the other night, which was one of the novel features of the season. Fays the New York Press. It was to have leen given in the pavilion at Bai ley's Beach, but the weather was threatening in the afternoon, and Mr. and Mrs. Hermann Oelrichs offered Mr. Collier the use of their large carriage house. This was transformed Into an Afri- can Jungle, and in the trees and grass were all kinds of animals and birds and snakes, illuminated with electric lights that shone through their mouths and eyes in a strangely fascinating manner. The Idea of Mr. Collier was well carried out. and Newport never saw before such a singularly weird dec orative effect. A dance followed the dinuer. The Cnrae of China. The appetite of the palace for tribute has been that of the two daughters of the horse leech, continually crrins "Give, give!" and government has been one vast system of bribes, "squeezes" and wholesale robbery, says John Foord in North American Review. Of fices great and small have been a mat ter of purchase, and the purchaser !.3 been mainly intent on making the most of his bargain. Official peculation is ; the curse of China and the root of all the evils from which it is suffering. Let that be cored or abated, and the ! people who starve while palace favor ites grow rich can be made to see that the foreigner may be the Instrument of their well being, "the advance agent of prosperity." Of all the punishments that western civilization can contrive I as a penalty for the misdeeds of the empress dowager and her clique of ob scurantist advisers none would be so exquisitely painful or so productive of ' results In the highest degree beneficial to the world as to deliver the govern ment of China into the hands of honest Chinamen.

Sept. 21. Did Jim Howard have a mustache on Jan. oO? On that question iu a great measure depends his lilierty, in-rhaps his life. The witnesses for the defense includ ing the defendant himself, all state that on Jan. 2-., and for days before, his face was clean shaven. Bownian Haines, Beu Bake and James F. Daly who have identified Howard an the man they saw on the Soth of Janu ary, swear that he had a mustache. Tuere goes Jim Howard clean shaven and tetter dressed than any man in town, if he keeps on that way lie will never be able to prove that he is a fool.". According to his testimony ex-State Senator Ed Parker made that remark in London on Jan. 2l where he saw Howard on the street. Mr. Parker ex plained that the reason be had sam this was that Howard was then at Iontlon to appear for trial for the mur der of George Bker and his plea was to be insanity. The defense is resting Its case on the alibi claimed for Howard and is not paying any attention to the claim of tlie nrosecution that the shot came from the secretary of state's office and other collateral matters which figured largely in tlie trial of Caleb Towers.

Just about that time I had arrived from the west and went in for racuig with U th feet. A friend of mine owned a fast 2-year-old maid en. The horse had a good iedigree and was well trained, but somehow wae uever in the money. My friend had a great deal of faith in the horse and backed the animal every time it ran. He lost, and w hen it became monoto nous he came to me. "Jim." he said, rather sadly, I'm Dearly broke. If I keep on dropping my money as I have done for the past two months. I don't know what will become of tne. I guess I will wind up in the poor house.' 'Whv. what's the matter? 1 said. trving to cheer him up. 'Don't be down- heart od. old ly. When you are short. you know you can always find me. That's all right. he said, 'but I owe you enough money already. I'm going to make a hit, and if the scheme goes through I'll have all the money 1 want. The scheme isn't strictly hon-e-t. but Hint's the only way I can get the coin just now. I've leen on the sqn.nre long enough. Saying this, he disappeared, and I did not see or hear from him for a long time. Cue day his horse came In second. was veiy much pleased, and when 1 found .Tim I extended my hand to con gratulate him. To my surprise, be waved ine aside and hung his head. I could not for the world make out what was the matter. 1 thought perhaps his success had turtntl his head. "Jim. 1 said, 'what is the matter with vou? I'm surprised. You never acted like this before. There is some thing certainly tlie matter. Out with it. I say, or else I shall uever have any thing to do with you in the future: 'I kuow I have not been carrying on right, Frank.' he said, 'but if yon went through what 1 have during the past ten hours you certainly would not blame me. Frank. I cannot look an honest man straight In the face after today. I stood to win foO.OOO. but I'm penniless now. It's all because I was greedy and refused to part with an ex tra $10. As you are no doubt aware. my horse ran second today. He might have won had I used better judgment and discretion.' "Then he went on and told me the following story: He had told all the other jockeys in the race that he de sired to win and unfolded his scheme. Seven horses ran. and the Jockeys had their instructions. They were to let mv friend's horse win. AH of the jockeys with the exception of one re ceived a ticket on the prospective win ner. My friend's horse was quoted at 20 to 1. and the six jockeys had tickets which called for 2imj to $10. Some how or other the seventh Jockey got wind of this and approached the train er of my friend's horse atout It. Th trainer told him to see Jim. which he did. Jim told him to go to the devil. He said: "Go away, boy, and don't bother me. You haven't got a chance to beat my horse, and I am not afraid of you anyway. I got $10 left, but you shall not have it.' The jockey persist ed that he could win if he tried anil told Jim that he ought to be let in ou the deal. Jim was obdurate and re quested tlie jockey to go alniut his busi ness. Jim somehow had scraped un beknowu to me about $5.0UO. His art ik horva all over the con to ry aihI -i4---0j--'-'w.'waw ?ajruatirq fortune. "Well, the race was soon off, and bis horse was leading In the stretch by five lengths. He thought it was all over but the explanations. On the run home his horse was still ahead by a good margin, and In the excitement the seventh jocke"y, the one to whom lie had refused to give a ticket, was for gotten. But the jockey had predicted correctly, and with a burst of speed that took the breath away from the spectators the outsider came to the fore and beat my friend's horse out at the post by a short head.
