"If you haven't whipped us yon have scared us like everything," said a leading Bancroft man to an Evening Journal reporter this morning. "Yon have made a plucky fight agalust Bancroft and It has been a clean one. We did not think that you would have the courage to etand by your guns when the fight grew hot, but we were fooled You will get more credit for|fightlng than for running "While I do notagree with the editorial policy of the Evening Journal as re gards Mr Bancroft, I certainly admire the manner in which it hts made the fight against him," said a Court House official "It has fought him In a manly way and will have nothing to be ashamed of, no matter which way the tide of battle turns." "Samuel Bancroft, Jr.'s own paper, the Every Evening, has abject fright written on every page," said a Market street merchant.

EX-MINISTER CHARLES EMORY SMITH IN THE AUDITORIUM. He Address. g the Republican Club. the Beauties of the McKinley Bill The Y. M. K. C. Demonstration—James Fcnuewlll Urges a Constitutional Con vention, The disappointments which have been on so many occasions the lot of the faith ful rank and file of the Republican party in this city, in the shape of speakers, advertised but who did not "materialize, bore fruit lost evening in the rather meagre audience which gathered in the Auditorium, to listen to Hon. Charles Emory Smith, of the Philadelphia Press, and ex minister to Russia. Many who would have attended feared that be had learned at the same time with Generals Hawley and Beaver, that it would be useless to waste eloquence in staunch old Democratic Delaware, and would at the last moment send regrets, and conse queutly stayed at home It was a mas terly adiress, from a Republican stand point, and while the theme was the old one of tariff and a eulogy of the McKin ley bill, Mr, Smith fully upheld his reputation as an eloquent and polished speaker. The meeting was under the auspices of the Young Men s Republican Club, and the spacious hall was elaborately decor ated gfor the occasion. Portraits of Marvil, Willis and McKinley occupied tho stage, while Lincoln, Graut, Arthur, Harrison, Blaine and Garfield occupied positions on the sides of ,tbe room. Potted plants and ll.gs were on the stage and along the side walls, and rosettes of bunting occupied the rear of the platform. The Y. M. R 0. had seats on the platform, each member wearing a handsome chrysanthemum in his'button hole, the gift of Robert J Hauby, who -mould like to represent this county In the Senate. President Churchman, of the Y. M. R G , was chairman. He said that while the Democratic party "had Imported from the shores of Great Britain a gentle man whom they bad styled an 'Ambassa dor.'and 'the first citizen of Delaware,' the Republican party, which had no 'Ambassador' or 'first citizen' had brought a plain everyday minister, a man who had represented the United States in Russia " He then introduced Charles Emory Smith, who spoke for two hours on the tariff He took several passages from Hon. Thomas F, Bayard's address In the Opera House and endeavored to dis prove them The same difference of opinion exists with all Republican speakers He paid considerable atten tion to William L Wilson's speech before the London Chamber of Commerce and made ans ver to some of the statements made then by that gentleman He also quoted from the English official Blue Book, to show that the free trade policy was responsible for all the ills with which the business world has been troubled. There was frequent applause, not at the neatly turned arguments alone, but mainly whenever the name of any man prominent in the party was mentioned. James Penne will, of Dover, was the next speaker and be touched on local issues to the extent of eulogizing the candidates of the parly, and sharply criticizing the action of,the Democratic party In Kent county in trying to strike the names of Republicans from the lists. He urged everyone to vote for a consti tutional convention, which he said was of Republican parentage. He spoke for about an hour.

Breathing Is difficult, and tbu pulse Is weak. The general weakness of tho patient has greatly Increased. '' A semiofficial telegram from Llvadla reports that tho czar is much weaker, and his pulse is feebler. A letter received hero from Llvadia says: "The czar la extremely weak ond hardly able to walk, but ho has not aban doned hope. He tries to reassure the czarina, who is beside herself with grief and anxiety. "His majesty has frequent somnolent fits, which bo does his utmost to come. He often refuses medicine, and tho sentries outside the quarters which ho occupies hoar groanlnga during tho night. "The population of Yalta warmly greet Princess Alix when she drives out with tho czarowltz." r The czar suffers fits of suffocation. Yesterday ho was unconscious for several hours. Tho day was warm and tho sky cloudless. Early in tho morning his maj esty tried to read state dispatches, but he was too weak. During his violent fits of coughing particles of lung were brought away. It was noticed that not one of the doc tors in attendance upon the osar was seen hire, though usually thoy ore observed walking ln tno streets daily. Everybody coming from Livadla Is assailed with questions, but nobody is able to give much news. Dr. Zacharln Is everywhere blamed for his wrong diagnosis and for allowing the disease to go so far before taking his majesty to a warmer climate. It Is alleged that there has been a serious quarrel between Professor I^eyden and Dr. Zacharln, the former reproaching his colleague with aggravating tho czar's Ill ness by his brutal frankness. Dr. Zaeh arln, it is said, retorted angrily and was only prevented from leaving Llvadla by tho Interference of General Toherovln. who threatened to forcibly detain him. Professors Wllsohowskl and Wyodzow have been summoned to Llvadla from St. Petersburg. ■ IV. r The Czar I. Dead. London, Nov., 1.—The Czar of Russia died at 1.30 this afternoon.
