HIS CANVASS IN AN AUTOMOBILE Bryan Adopts Up-to-Date Methods in Campaigning.

Bryan to-day continued his canvass of the j F^rst Congressional District in this State. He started out eariy ln an automobile, in tending to make three speeehes before re? turning to Lincoin. The first stop was made at the little town of Waverly, in I-ancaster county, where he spoke at 11:30 o'clock. ln his speech at that point, which is only twelve miles from Lincoin, the Pres^demial candidate taiked in a familiar straln as to old neighbors. He was greet ed by a large number of peopie. Mr. Bryan did not attempt to deliver a formal speech, but he taiked to the peopie for haif an hour or more concerning the is? sues, dwelling especially on "imperialism and militarism. BRYAN AND THE DTJTCH. At Firth Mr. Bryan addressed a crowd composed largely of Dutch, and he was Introduced by a speaker in the Dutch lan guage. His speech was, in the main, an argument against the poiicy of the admin? istration in the Phllippiries. He said that after travelling more or less over the United States he was satisfied that the country was big enough without taking in the Phillppines. He declared the Re? publiean poiicy of a character ealculated to strike at the very principles of govern? ment, and he asserted that if we are to have imperialism we must have a large standing army, and that the Republiean party -meant to maintain a large army was made manifest by the increase already established. Mr. Bryan said that the Fllipinos had ai? ways stood ready to give us a coaling station at Manila. "But," he said, "the trouble ls, we "have wanted to hold all the land to see whether there was any coal there." And _n the language of a member of Congress it was, he said, sig nificant that one of the first acts of the Government after Dewey's victory was to give insrructions' io ascertain whether there was coal in the archipelago. AS TO SOUTH AFRICA. Mr. Bryan closed with a reference to the scene in South Afriea, giving a graphic picture of it and strongly condemning the Administration's want of sympathy. He declared that indifference so great to the fate of a South African Republic might be justly regarded as an index to the state of mind 'concerning our own re? public. After his speech at Firth, Mr. Bryan drove to Haltam, a distance of nine miles. and there made the last speech of the day. RATHBONETO FIGHT. NewPha.se in Cnban Postal Scaudal Trials.
