San Luis Obispo, Oct. 17. —Never be
fore boa tbere been aa much political
enthusiasm exhibited in San Luis
Obispo county'a capital aa was shown
tonight in honor of George S. Patton
and W. W. Phillips. The demonstration
was really an upriaing of the entire pop
ulation, without regard to party, to man
ifest approval of the gallant fight being
made in this part of the district by Mr.
Pe.tton on the question involved in tbe
approaching election, wbich ia whether
or not Southern Pacifio domination and
the tyrannical, lawless rule of the Btate
ehall be ended or not. Mr. Patton and
party arrived at 11 a. m., and were taken
at once to Port Harford, where tbe
government improvements were inspect
ed. This is nn open port at present, but
tbe people are fearful that it may some
time fall under tbe blighting influence
of the Southern Pacific. As the business
meu of tbe city feel quite confident of
Mr. Pattou's election, they were desirous
of having him inspect tbe breakwater in
order that he might be well posted iv
the needs and necessities of the port
when be would be called upon to act at
During tiie afternoon many ranchers,
farmers and fruit growera came in from
the sourrounding country. By 7 p. m.
the streets of the city were crowded witb
people. Both men and women wore
rosebuds indicating tbat tbe object of
tbeir visit waa to participate in tbe
demonstration. At 7 o'clock a torch
light procession was formed ol 1000 men.
Headed by a band tbey paraded tbe
principal streets oi the city. Messrs,
Patton nnd Phillips marched, torch in
hand, ieading tbe procession. The en
thusiasm of the people knew no bounds.
The streets were lighted all along
the line of march by merchants
who burned red fire in front of their
places of business. By the time tho
procession arrived at the pavilion where
tbe meeting was hold, there were but
lew vacant seats left in the hall, and
when the gathering was called to order

were ever seen in it before. Tbere waa

point in the district. Tbe cheers laaled
for several minutes, and then tbe crowd

was restored be proceeded to deliver one
ol hm impassioned addresses, taking his
oft-explained position on tbe rail
road question. Tbe scathing ex
posure and condemnation ne gave
ol Southern Pacifio methods brought
forth round after round of applause.
Included in tbe audience were many
Populists and Republicans. Tbey were
impressed witb tbe fair and honest pre
sentation Patton made, for tbey listened
to him with intense interest throughout
tbe entire speech. He demonstrated
that the railroad company was seeking
to elect its tools to office by dividing the
people by party lines. He Baid that if it
conld come to tbe abatract propoaitiou
aa to whether tbe railroad company
should rule the Btate through its tools,
set up by a convention controlled by a
boss liko Burns, or whether honest men
should fill public places in tbe interest
of tbe people, the people would
win by 200,000 majority. But
tbe railroad company did not do
business that way. Tbey captured tbe
Rapublican state and congressional con
ventions and expected, by biding under
the clonk of those political organizations,
to doceive tbe people and secure a grip
on the atnte lor lour yeara longer, during
wbich they could continue their prac

Open lug of the Nebraska Statesmen's
Joint D.bat**,
Lincoln. Neb., Oct. 17.—The firet of
the joint debates on political issues, be
tween Hon. W. J. Bryan and Hon. J.M.
Thurßton, occurred here this afternoon.
It is estimated tbat 7000 people were in
Agricultural ball during tbe speaking.
Tbe whole stuto was represented aud
many from othor atatea were preßent.
The fact that both apeakors ore avowed
candidates for the United States senate
added to tbe interest of the occasion.
The reception given to tbe principal fig
ures of tbe afternoon waa hearty and en
C. J. Stnythe of Omaha and John P.
Maul of Lincoln took turns iv presiding.
As Mr. Bryan waa to open the debate,
Mr, Smytbe made tbe opening state
ment. He atated tbe conditions of tbe
debate and asked respectful attention
to tbe speakers. Then ho introduced
Congressman Bryan, wbo was greeted
with cbeera. Tbe terms, of tbe debate
confined tbe speakers to no particular
Bryan touched chiefly on silver, in
come tax and Pacifio railroad indebted
ness. The income tax wae fair, and he
waa satisfied tbat the future would vin
dicate his judgment. As to the Pacific
railroads, it he were elected to the senate
he proposed to do hia best to have the
government mortgage foreclosed.
It wae ou tho silver issue that he waa
moat eloquent. He waa aure that the
white metal would be victoriona event
ually. Ho pointed to the gains it bad
receutly mado in ail parte of the coun
try os a vindication ol his position. Mr.
Bryan was cheered vocileronsly at the
conclusion of hia remarks.
.Mr. Thurston received a great ovation.
He is a graceful speaker and in a meas
ure has an advantage ovor his able op
ponent. His speech was more of a gen
eral nature than tbat of Bryan. He
confessed to be at a disadvantage in the
estimation of some in discussing the
Pacific railroada siuce he waa tbe attor
ney for tho leading company. Still he
wub confident that it has not to the ad
vantage of the people of tbe whole coun
try to bave the government foreclose its
second mortgage since it must first p»y
tbe enormous firet mortgage indebted
ne is.
Replying to Mr. Bryan's income tax
views, he was brief and deprecated the
measure, saying he believed it could not
endure. On silver tho speaker became
brilliant. After declaring, to the sur
prise oi gome, that he favored the free
coinage of tbe American production, be
pictured the enormous loads of foreign
while metal that would be dumpen into
thie country in the event of free coinage,
and at the close declared tbe idea was
perfectly preposterous.

comprehend what is for tbo best inter

next stone thrown he wonld order the
men to fire. Tho crowd at tbe door waa
unable to effect an entrance. Tbe court

"and cries ol "Give ua the nigger 1" and
curses against the militia filled tne air.
The crowd grew in size every minute.
Before tiring, Colonel Coit made a
speech asking the crowd to disperse, but

Upon tbe firing tbe mob diaperaed

Feeling against the military was bitter,

pant up passion of everybody, for every
body waa in tbe street and all wete mem

and other points.
■joluy's CRIME.
Dolby's crime was committed one
week ago nt Parrott'd etation. Mrs.
Mary C. Boyd, aged 55, waa hie victim,
lie was brought into court at 4 o'clock
thie afternoon, pleaded Ktiilty and waa
sentenced to 20 yeara iv tbe penitenti
ary. A mob gathered abont tbe jail
yard yeaterday alter Dolby bad been
identified by bia victim, and Sheriff
Cook called to bia aaeiatance tbe local
militia company. Tbia action increased
the fury against Colby, and Governor
McKiniey waa appealed to for additional
assistance, and troops from Columbus
were Bent thia morning, witb Colonel
Coit in command.
The mob surrounded the jail and court
houae, attempting to take Dolby from
tbe officers, when he was removed from
the jail to tbe court bouse for trial, but
they were kept at bay by tbe übb of
bayonets and clubbed guns.
Henry Kirk, brother-in-law of the
assaulted woman, was thrown down
ths steps of tbe court bonce and badly
bruised. Another man waa bayoneted
through the finger, while a bayonet
was thrust through the clothing of an
other man.
Deputies with drawn revolvers guard
ed their prisoners in the court room.
Dolby cried like a baby and kept look
ing around for help. Soldiers were
marched in to keep the crowd quiet.
After tbe sentence the prisoner waß
taken to the grand jury room. A mob
gathered about the court bouse and it
was impoeaible to get the prisoner
through to taka him to tbe train. The
officers were powerless to get Dolby from
the court house tv the jail or to tbe
train, and Sheriff Cook wired the gov
ernor to send more troops.
quiet restored.
At midnight tbe court houae yard waa
cleared, but tbe angry mob remained in
tbe equare, still uttering threats.
At 1 a. m. the town ia quiet, and tbere
are no indicationa of further trouble.
Additional troops will arrive from Cin
cinnati and Columbua at 2 o'clock.
Dolby ia still at tbe court houee strongly
dolby's night of terror.
The prisoner, Dolby, spent a night of
horror in the jail last night. He was
brought from Delaware at 5:40 yeater
day evening. Tbe appearance of the
mob outside of tbe jail weakened Dolby
of bis bravado and he hurried into tbe
jail witb evident relief. Tbere he
passed a sleepless night, cowering upon
the floor of bis cell, listening to
tho angry mutterings of the mob
outside, wbich Bwolled ominously
in volume, as from every village and
hamlet tbe rising citizens poured in to
take vengeance on the fiend. When the
other prisonern discovered Dolby was in
the jail, they joined the crowd in curs
ing and booting him and would have
done him personal injury if they had
been able to reach bim.
"They're cpming to get you, Dolby,"
shouted one, and the corridors of the
jail resounded witb tbe laughter of the
"They're at the door, Dolby; one of
tbem hae a rope."
All through the night the prisoners
kept jeering the terrified Dolby, who
cowered iv the darkest corner of bis cell,
moaning piteously. When morning
dawned and the guards came to look at
Dolby, tbey found that in hia abject
fright he had covered the door of hie
cell with a snoot to ahot out tbe aounda
from wilhout, and lay shivering on tbe
floor. When taken into tbe court house
be waa so weak with fear tbat he scarce
