©nstration last evening, which far sur passed anything I expected. I am pleased to find so unanimous a senti ment In favor of the indorsement of the action of the Chicago convention. From what I have seen of New York and the sentiments expressed by the state or ajanization, I am satisfied the state con vention will Indorse the platform as well as the ticket. Some delegates may oppose some parts of the platform, but this is a national platform and will be accepted as a whole." During a brief stop at Niagara, the Bryan party was taken on a special car to Lewistown, several miles down the river. After ascending the tower for a view of the falls, they boarded the train for Knowlesvtlle, near Medina, to speak at a farmer;-' plnic. AT KNOW LESYILLE Thousand! ol Country People Listen and Cheer by Turn.* KNOWLEBVILLE, N. T , Aug. 28.— There were several stops at small sta tions between Niagara and Knowles vllle, hut Mr. Bryan made no speeches. His voice was getting unmanageable. "My head is willing, but my throat is weak," he explained to the people of Lockport, who had chartered a band and burned powder to greet him. Men sat around the freight cars in the yard, and a cluster of farmers' wagons, while some hundred agriculturists surround ed the depot, probably a thousand all told. After Mr. Bryan had apologised for the shortcomings of his voice they persisted in their calls, so that he said a few Words, thanking them for the interest which they displayed in the campaign. The same scene was repeated at Me dina, where farmers seemed to compose a majority of the concourse. Mrs. Bryan's car seat had been heaped with bouquets by the ladies of Lockport, and at Medina she scattered chrysanthe mums among the people who came scrambling after the train while it pulled out, fighting for every blossom. The train itself was overcrowded with passengers, many of whom lv.light tickets for the sake of a sight of the Ne braska orator. They pushed into the last car, where the Bryans were until it was crowded. From the car window the country roads along: the line could be seen with long flies of teams, all headed for Knowlesvllle, whither all tbe roads were leading today. Knowlesvllle was reached at a quarter after one. A hearty welcome was given, and the farmers' wagons at the little depot were deco rated with flags and home-made ban ners, displaying lithographs of the can didate. One wagon, drawn by four white horses, was waiting for the party, and into this they were hurried, the band leading the way, and fifty farm wagons trailing behind in the march to the village, two miles distant. Thus were the Bryans escorted to the home of Mr. nnd Mrs. Eugene Woodford and en tertained 'at lunch by them and Mrs. T. Morey Hodgman, a Nebraska friend of theirs who Is spending the summer here. After lunch they were taken to Knowlesvllle, where Mr. Bryan # spoke In the open air to several thousand country people assembled for the farm ers' picnic, as follows: Mr. Chairman, Ladles and Gentlemen: Sly voice ls so husky that you will have to help me to speak by remaining per fectly quiet. I shall make myself heard to as many as possible, nnd in a mo ment I hope my voice will be clear enough to reach the outskirts of the crowd. This is a very unusuai specta cle. I have seen immense audiences in the cities, where a great many pSQJjIe live in a small territory, but this is the largest audience that I have ever seen assembled in the midst of an agrlcul cutal country. (Applause.) I am glad to notice here the mothers and wives as well as the sons and husbands,because my friends, our cause is the cause In which the whole family is interested. (Great applause) If we are entitled to succeed In this campaign, It is becaute the principles which we represent and the policies for which we stand will be for the benefit of the husbands and wives, the patents and children, and all tlie people of our beloved land. I am glad that at this meeting we have as a presiding officer a man who until this year has voted the Republican ticket. I am glad because some of the newspapers parade before the public the names of prominent Democrats who are going to desert the ticket, anil I am glad that for every Democrat de serter we are to have accessions from the Republican party more than enough to keep up the difference. (Applause.) Politics is a practical question. It is so simply because it can be compre hended by our people. 1 want to talk practical politics to you for a little while this afternoon. Neither my time nor my physical strength will permit an extended discussion of tbe issues of this campaign. Hut I desire to suggest some thoughts which may help you In your study of the issues and your determina tion of the part you shall take. I want to read to you.an extract from a speech made by John G. Carlisle in IS7B, and I want you to murk the political philos ophy therein set forth. He was speak ing on an amendment to the Bland act, and ho used these words: "If tjie execution of this measure could bo entrusted to a public officer whose opinons on thi subjeot were in accord with those of a meat majority of the American people"—let me pause for a moment to say that It it was de sirable at that time to have the secre tary of the treasury in accord with the opinion of tlie vast majority of the American people, it would be a good thing today. And he said, further: "And whose sympathies"—mark the words—"and whose sympathies were with tlie struggling masses who pro duce the wealth nnd pay the taxes of the country, rather than with the idle hold ers of Idle capital, the provision alluded to would be of little consequence .be cause he would coin the maximum in stead of the minimum amount allowed by the amendment. Hut, situated as we are, we all know, or at best we all have reason to believe, that not a dollar be yond tin minimum amount will be coin ed, and consequently the process of put ting this money into circulation will be too slow to afford the full measure of relief which the people demand and need." Mark those words. John fj. Ctfrlisle divided society into twi classes. On the capital and on the other he put the struggling masses, who product- ihe wealth and pay the tuxes of the coun try. (Applause.) If the division existed then, it ex ists today. More than that John C. Carlisle said that a public officer, sworn to do hie duty, would be controlled in his offlclal conduct by ills sympathies, and If his sympathies were with the Idle holders of idle capital he would coin as little money as possible, whereas, if his sympathies \\oi« with the struggling masses, he would coin as much as the law would permit him. (Applause.) This is the language of John (1. Carlisle, not uttered when he was young, as might be charged, ar, has been charged against me. (Laughter.) It was when he was seven years older than 1 am now. (Ap plause.) My friends, tbe issue today is between the idle holders of Idle mony and the struggling masses who produce the wealth and pay the taxes of the country. (Applause.) And when this question is understood, and when men find out about the money question, you will find that if there is a man in your community whose Interests or whose sympathies are with the idle holders of Idle money, he will be In favor of a gold standard,and, not daring to do so.he will talk about "honest money" and a "sound dollar." (Applause.) But if his sympathies were with those who pro duce the nation's wealth, he will be for the gold and silver coinage of the constitution, no matter how many times you call him an anarchist. They tell us that these prominent financiers are going to leave the Democratic party because it declares for the restoration of silver. We shall not go into court to secure an order to prevent their going. (Loud laughter nnd applause.) The Democratic party has been weighted down by theae millstones long enough. It is glad to be rid of those who want to use the party organization for private gain and their country for public plun der. (Applause.) Let me read a little further from Carlisle's speech. A voice—Why do you read from Car lisle's speech? Mr. Bryan—Why? Because no man has presented a more forcible argument in favor of bimetallism than Mr. Car lisle has. (Groat applause and cheering.) Let me read now of what be says of that bill. "But it will certainly offer some relief. It will reverse the grinding pro cess that has been going on for the last few years." Aye, away back eighteen years ago he spoke of this as tho grinding process, and, my friends, it docs not lighten the effects of a grinding process to call it a temporary embarrassment. He said: "Instead of constant ar.d relentless con traction, instead of constant apprecia tion of money and depreciation of prop erty"—that is what we have seen, a con stant appreciation of money and depre ciation of property—he said: "Instead of these we will have expansion of doubtless $2,000,000 per month under its influence." Now, what is going to be next? Mr. Carlisle knew In IST3, he said: "Cnder Its Influence the exchangeable value nnd the commodities including labor will soon begin to rise." That Is what be said in IsTS. But what will be the effect of It? "Thus inviting investments. Infusing life into the dead industries of the country and quickening the pulsations of trade in all of its de partments." He understood the laws of finance. He understood what was the effect of add ing this money to circulation and, my friends, if he stated the truth then, that truth has not changed since then, nor can It be changed, though every one who spoke for it should turn his back upon it. (Great applause.) Truth lives. It Is th.» one thing that will not die. I quote these words to you to show you that by the In- crease of the volume of money we ex pect to stop the constant appreciation of money and the constant depreciation of property. There is a difference be tween tbe owner of money and the owner and producer of property. Let me Illus trate. Suppose a man in this commu nity—a young man—finds some young woman who is willing to trust her fu ture to his strong right arm and they start to build a home. Not having enough money they take what they have saved together nnd they buy a farm, paying 81000 down and giving a mortgage for tbe other thousand. And what is the result? Suppose money rises in value. Suppose you take a no- tlon you want a good dollar, a high priced dollar, a dollar that keeps getting higher priced every day. Suppose that you have a dollar that gets to be twice as good as it was when the man gave the mortgage. It means that each dollar will buy twice us much, that It will take twice as much of the products of the farm to buy the dollar and pay his debts as ltd id before. What is tbe result? Why the result is that while It requires twice as much to pay tuxes and twice as much to pay the debt the man finds out that he is not able to pay the debt as he agreerl to. What then? You say ex tend the mortgage. Why. they tell him that the land has gone down in value now and that the farm is not worth enough to be good security for tne thou sand dollars, then what? There is one thing. He can turn the farm over to the man that holds the mortgage. That he can always do. "What Is the t( suit? He I and his wife have lost SlOoO they invest jed in the farm. They have lost their la bor they put forth in trying to pay the mortgage and thon they lose the farm and start out In life again. How about the other man who sold him the farm I and got $1000 down? If he loaned that $1000 he got security for $lonfl and lie has the, thousand dollars within his reach I ask if there is any difference be tween the holder of capital and the owner of property in the appreciation of the dollar. The man with money ls twice as well off S3 be was before, and who tried to own property loses all he has and has to begin again. You find j the man who holds the notes meeting in convention and declaring that the gold standard is the best system of money that was ever Invented. But will those j people who have | os t their homes—will they endorse this system of destroying them? My friends, this is a practical Question that confronts the farmer -jf the United states, and not of the United states alone, but the farmers of lie land, tlie farmers of England and the I farmers of Germany, and the farmers of every nation in the world that has the gold standard today. I assert that tlie gold standard could not live for ono day in any nation under the sun with out the aid of money owners and the money changers to keep it in existence. I assert that the gold standard hits ! nevt r received the endorsement of any class of people except those who prosper as society suffers by a rising dollar. If the gold standard Is good why should we try to get rid of it? (Ap- plause.) if the Bold standard is good why did not tho Republican party pledge itself to help keep a food Stand LOS ANGELES HEBALB* SATURDAY MORNTN"G. AUGUST 39, 189*. nrd? But no, it pledged Itself to get rid of the gold standard just as soon as other nations will help. Thnt Is not my language, my friends, that is the lan guage of the Republican platform, and that ls the construction placed upon It by the candidate who runs upon It In his letter of acceptance. He says In thnt letter that the American people cannot enter upon bimetallism without the concurrent action of other nations. Why? Does he say we shall maintain the gold standard for one year? No. For four years? No. But the conclu sion Is that we must maintain It forever if other nations say. we must. (Ap-, plause.) It Is not a question of pollti3B, my friends. Whole parties are divided on this Is-ue. It rises above the ques tion of politics. They have declare I against the right of the people of the T'nited States to govern themselves. They have declared that while we want to get rid of the gold standard we must keep the thing that we do not want until aliens shall bring us the relief which we Ehould achieve for ourselves. I know what vkw you may take of It, my friends, but In my humble Judgment the American people are the only people who have any right to say what th. Americans shall have for legislation. They have driven down the price of your products. They have increased the bur den of ynur debts. They hnvc fore closed your mortgages. They are de grading and lowering the standard of Oivlllsation by driving people who want work to work upon the streets nnd then IdltneM breeds crime nnd crime men aces tiie safety of every citizen of the land. (Applause.) A voice—How about free trade. Mr. Bryan—My Friends, it Is not more taxes the people want, but more money to pay taxes with. (Creat applause.) But I care not how men may differ up on the subject of taxation. The subject of taxation is ever present with its. We can chang.' our tariff system any time, but we have reached a crisis in our monetary affairs and we have got to de cide Whether the Ani"iican people will run our finances or turn our government over to syndicates to take care of us. Upon the action of the United States may depend the action of other nations. If the Influences which are at work here succeed here they will be turned against other nations thnt now use silver, and If they succeed invthe T'nited Stales they will succeed In other nations, and every nation that goci3 to the gold standard increases the demand for gold, raises the purchasing power of an ounce of gold and lowers the purchasing power of wheat nnd corn and other products of the farm. If foreign nations can force a policy upon the American people, they will want to enforce their system of govern ment, which is the only system they can maintain, an un-American system which maintains itself by standing ar mies. When we speak out against unjust legislation they say we ate disturbers of tlie public peace and a menace to law and order. Do you mean to say that Ihe farmers gathered here an dthe labor ers who are congregated in our cities are enemies of the country? No; they have earned the epithets of our oppo nents, not because they menace law and order, but bec-ause they say: "Thou shalt not steal" shall apply to the great corporations aE well as to burglars and highwaymen. It is because they say that this government was not institut ed in order that its Instrumentalities should be monopolized by those who use the government for their own ends and put it in distress. The promulgation of tlie gold standard is an attack upon your homes and firesides, and you have as much right to resist it as to resist an army marching to take your children captive and burn the roof over your head. I have simply told you what I I believe-. I speak the sentiment that lies down deep in my heart. I used to be j indifferent to the money question. Un- I til six years ago I thought anybody was j a crank who talked about money; but I when 1 studied the question I found that lit overshadowed all other questions; j that it was deeper and greater a;:d. high er than all other questions which we ! had to ileal with, and when 1 read In I the address of Mr. Carlisle that the I consummation eif this scheme meant i more misery to the human race than j the worst pestilence in the history of I the world, 1 began to realize the 1m ! portance of the money question. I be lieve Mr. Carlisle spoke the truth, and it is because I do believe It that ever since I have become convinced of it I have cried out a\iin.st the conspiracy and I shall cry out against it as long as God gives me voice to speak.

The letter now In course of preparation will be submitted to the notification committee for their appproval. If they desire to meet nnd proceed in a body to see Alessrs. Bryan and Wat son, then such a tourso Will be adopted and a time set for tbe visits. It is felt, however, that this Is unneessary, and may be Inconvenient to the committee to make the trip across the country, in which case the notification will be made by sending; a letter to Messrs. Bryan and Watson. SILVER HEADQUARTERS CHICAGO, Aug. 28.—Isaac N. Stevens of Colorado, who is at the head of the American Silver party campaign com mittee, decided last night to open up the national headquarters at the Clifton hotel. He left for Denver last night. Where he goes to arrange bis private business affairs, so as to devote his entire attention to the work of the campaign. He will return the first of the week and headquarters will then be opened for work. He said that he was greatly encouraged over the out look for Mr. Bryan In the west, where be says the party will poll its big vote. He thinks Colorado will give Bryan 150,000 majority.

THE CRITTENTON MEETINGS Interesting: Series of Services The ITuslcal Program The evangelists' working force lost one of its best helpers Wednesday by tho departure of Mr. Chas. Morton for Chl cugo, but was doubly reinforced by the arrival of Mr. J. C. Carpenter and Mrs. h.f. Perry from Carpentaria,where they have been bedding'a very successful re vival. So eager were the people for the meetings that they could not and would not discontinue them, and not until Mr. Carpenter promised to return would they consent to his departure. Many have been converted. Gamblers havo given up gambling, and all (lasses of sinners have turned from sin to right eousness. Mr. Perry sang himself right Into the hearts of the congregation at the night service, in his duet with Mrs. Molfet, Open the Door for Jesus. He has a sweet Voice und sings without any affectation, Mr. Wallace's solo. What Will You Do With Jesus? was well rendered nnd as well received. Mr. Carpenter preached from the text: "What shall 1 do with Jesus?" and de livered one of the most earnest ad dresses that has Peep, heard during these services. At the close many rose for prayers and found peace by believ ing In Christ. Thursday's services were very inter esting und largely attended. The sing ing was led by Joshua ColVln, an cur nest and forcible singer from Sun Fran cisco. The duet. Have You Any Room for Jesus? by Mr. Wallace nnd Miss Moffet, was listened to with rtipt atten tion and was one of the best selections these talented singers have rendered. Mr. Orit teuton preached on the text: "He not unequally yoked together With Unbelievers," and gave a very forcible Sermon on the evils, the- sorrow and the sadness arising from Christian girls mar rying those who were unsaved and Ills earnest appeal to the Christians In the congregation to come out of the world, to give up card playing, dancing, theater going, and such frivolities met with a heai ty response, and after the meeting they croweded the altar and consecra ted themselves to Christ and to the work of saving souls. At the evening service Mr. Wallace sung a very effectiveSOlO, No Hope. This talented vocalist puts his whole Soul Into 1:1s Singing and certainly has a future of great usefulness before him. Mr. Crit tenton preached a telling sermon on "Watchman, what of the night?" to a very large congregation, after which quite a number sought nnd found the Savior. The afternoon service npenetl yester day with the singing of "Blessed As surance," "Stand up for Jesus" and "The Hest Friend to Have Is Jesus.' and after several prayers Mr. Wallace sang another of his ( harming solos. "I Shall He Satisfied." after which Evan gelist Carpenter delivered a searching sermon on the text: "Is It well with thyself; is It well with thy husband; is It well with, thy child?" The evening's meeting opened with a reusing song service, consisting of "Since I Have Been Redemed," "Won drous News." und "There is Joy Among the Angels" by Ihe congregation. Messrs. Crtttenton, Carpenter and Wal lace sang a very solemn trio, kneeling, "It Almost -Makes Me Tremble.' Mr. Perry sang. "Throw Out the Life Line" heartily: Mis. Moffet sang a very pa thetic solo. "The Dying Floy," and the vast congregation were so carried away with It that they forgot where they were ar.d many applauded. Mr. Carpenter preached from the text, "What wIR thou do In the swellings of i Jordan?" Saturday Is the evangelists' rest day but so great has been the pressure brought to bear upon Mr. Crlttenton that he has decided to bold two regular services today, one nt " and the other at 7:80 p. M.I the latter to be preceded by an ImmsnM street meeting. Sunday will be an "all day" meeting, commencing at fl:.'IO a. m. and lusting till midnight. As this will be the fa- • nioits evangelist's las', day In our city, many no doubt will throng to hear him. Prom Los Angeles he will go to Long Reach, where he will hold a scries of meetings. TIP THE BARBER OR SUFFER. Troiililf-F That May Overtake a rrnrtent lUnn In Now York Barber Shops. The subject of barber's tips has bohhed up for discussion. Every man who putron ; izes a barber shop instead of shaving him ' self knows what a heavy tax these tips aro. i Tbe man who gets shaved in a llrst class I shop and forgets to tip the barber at least I 10 cents is bound to feel uncomfortable | the next tlmo lie goes there. Men whn I don't tip are spotted after the first visit in j many shots, and they arc made to feel i their delinquency in a do/en little wuys, of which the proprietor is apparently igno runt. There arc shrugs of the shoulder und Bneors and.llttlo delays that disappear as soon us one begins to tip. I One barber shop in a down town hotel depends on strangers almost entirely for its patronage. Alter one visit to it tho victim swears tint he never will go thero again. As, soon as one enters the door ho is tlie center of a struggle between three I colored bootblack* They siring from ] different corjjors Oi the room and rush nnd fight With one another lor tho victim's lint. The man who wants ft shave no sooner emerges from this encounter than he finds that halt a dozen barbers arc bid ding for bis patronage. As soon us lie is safely anchored in a chair his troubles double, Tin: man who is shaving him tells him that his hair is falling out. Will ho have a llttlo elixir on it? If lie nods, ho will find after he has been shaved that tho bottle litis been wrappotl up for him and $1 added to los check. His harbor will try to sell him half a dozen different lotions, und tho victim is pretty sure to find ono or two of them charged on hi •.check, whether \ be lias ordered them or not. Tho barbers get a commission on etch bottle sold. I£ he fails to offer a tip promptly, tho barbers will ask for it. So will tho colored boot blacks. ■ Not long ago a New Jersey man got shaved In this shop, and rather than talk he nodded to everything that tho barber said. When he left the chair, a check for I $3.00 was presented to him. He found | that ho had bought threo bottles of hair I tonic that he didn't want, but ho hud to pay for them, despite his protests. This is only one of half ft dozen similar shops in New York where n man must nt least tip if he expects to eseupe without trouble —New York Sun. EXPENSIVE CHEESE. The Clrnumßtnnees That Mado tlie Llm uurg-er Cost Si./ a Pound. Beyond having tho floor swept occasion ally the office of v South Water street, firm had not been cleaned for years. The walla and woodwork were of a uniform dingy shade, and it was almost Impossible to sco out of the windows. Every fow months tho bookkeeper would throw out a hint about it, but tlsc boss obstinately refused to sanction the necessary expenditure. One day tho bookkeeper told his troubles to his friend Beerup, arid that astute Gcr inan at ouco suggostul a plan for relief, which tho sufferer proceeded 7 p%»Mnptly"lo put into elocution. Two days later tlie old man came into the office on a brlsl trot, but ho stopped abruptly when neat bis 0' n dost» aril sallied tho air anrpl elously.

After two days more, customers who came into t he place would suddonly remember seme thing they had forgotten and would go out and not corns back. The neat day the old innn capitulated and teld the office boy to telephone a certain firm to rand a man over. Tlie man came, and the boss made a con tract with him to clean tho offlotvapd win dows nnd frostily pnint ererything for the sum of t'M.
