tty extended from one end ot the country to the other. You are interested in hav ing all workshops running, all our mines in operation, and all our workmen con stantly and profitably employed. You are, therefore, this year possibly more than ever before interested in the tri umph of political principles which envel op the well being arid high spirit of the American people. You want to stop un sold goods and unpaid bills. You know better than anybody else that you can not sell goods to your customers unless your customers can sell goods to the peo ple. You know people cannot buy goods unless they have something to do with which to earn money. That is what is the matter wtth the country. That is the diagnosis of our country at this hour. Business has been stopped the wheels of Industry are not running. Idle men are on the streets. Many a manufacturing establishment Is closed and you are not doing as well as you were in 1892. The best thing I can wish for each and every one of you is a return to the splendid prosperity of four years ago. "The money of the country happily is all right; the"Republicans made it all right, and Grover Cleveland's adminis tration has kept it going. We propose to continue that good, sound, unques tioned and undepreciating money with which to do the business ot this country. (Great cheering.) What a nation we are! Why, in 1860, when Abraham Lincoln, of blessed memory—the immortal hero of emancipation and of the war—had con trol of our government, our entire wealth was sixteen billion dollars. When Benjamin Harrison went out there were eixty-three billion of dollars and more than two-thirds of the great war debt had been wiped out. Since that time we have been doing little else but making debts for the government and debts for the people." During his address to the missionary board of the Evangelical association, In response to Bishop Thomas Bowman, Major McKinley said: "I appreciate this call. I would expect from a body of religious men that they would stand by public honor and publjc honesty as your bishop has described. I would expect from you that you would stand by public law, public tranquillity and public security and the honor of the country to which you belong. It is the proud boast of our American institu tions that every citizen beneath our flag oan worship God according to the dic tates of his own conscience in every corner of this great country, and I am always glad to meet a body of men who have devoted their lives to the improve ment and betterment of humanity, for as you better its condition you elevate cit izenship, and when you elevate citizen ship you have exalted the country." In his address to the Reading, Pa., Hardware Sound Money club and the Davenport, lowa, and Moline and Rock Island, 111., delegations. Major McKin ley said: "You come from three, states of the mightiest government of the earth. You come representing divers occupations and varied employments, but you come with a single mission; you come with a common purpose, and that purpose is to manifest your devotion to the great prin ciples of the Republican party and your determination to see that those prin ciples shall triumph on the 3d day of November. You come because, as your spokesmen have so well sale}, you are interested in the welfare and piesperity of the country which you love, and that you believe will be best subserved by a Republican victory at the ensuing elec tion, now only a little more than three Weeks away. You have come because you believe ip a protective tariff; you believe in that great American policy established at the beginning of the gov ernment of the United Slates which had the approval of all the early statesmen and of the first president, George Wash ington; of a policy that lias been pur sued for more than half the lifetime of the republic, and during all that period that it prevailed we enjoyed th* highest prosperity in every enterprise uiid under taking of the American people. You have come here because you are in favor of the supremacy of the law, and be cause you mean to maintain a govern ment by law and under law. You are here because you believe in public and private honesty and because you do not propose that any part of the public debt of this country shall be repudiated In whole or in part. You are here to de clare that every obligation of this gov ernment is as sacred as its flag, and is an obligation which shall be kept and performed. You are here because you want no depreciating or fluctuating cur rency with which to do your business. You are here because you believe In an honest dollar for an honest govern ment and for honest men. You do not want a dollar that is worth less than 100 cents, for you were taught in your childhood that an honest dollar had a hundred cents In it." In the course of his address to the Maryland delegation Major McKinley said: One of the old and most honored political parties of this country has become divided this year. A part of It has united with two other parties, and In some of the states thc alllance has been rejected and fusion repudiated, so that the coalition is not altogether harmonious. The other lead ers of the Democratic party, those who carried its burdens and fought Its bat tles In the past, framed in the city of Indianapolis a few weeks ago an in dictment against their old party as sociates who met in Chicago, which In severity has been unequaled. It pro nounced the declarations of the Chicago convention, which was Democratic in name, as an attack upon Individual free dom, right of private contract, the in dependence of the judiciary, and right of the president to enforce the laws of the country; they charged the Chicago convention with a reckless attempt to increase the price of silver by legislation, to the debasement of our monetary sys tem, and threatening unlimited Issues of paper money by the government. They proclaim, in view of these and other grave departures from economic principles, that they cannot support the candidate of that convention, nor be bound by its acts. They declare that the Democratic party has survived many defeats, but could never survive a vic tory won in behalf of the policy pro claimed in its name at Chicago. On the money question, they affirm that the ex perience of mankind has shown that by reason of their natural qualities, gold is the necessary money of the large af fairs of commerce and business, while silver is conveniently adapted to minor transactions, and the most beneficial use of both can be insured only by the adoption of the former as the standard of monetary rv'."ure-. and the main tenance of silver at a parity with gold by Its limited coinage under suitable safeguards of law. Thus the largest possible employment of both metals is gained, with a value universally ac cepted throughout the world, which constitutes the only practical bimetallic currency, assuring the most stable stan dard, and especially the best and safest money for all who earn their livelihood by labor or the produce of husbandry. They canont suffer when paid in the best money known to man, but are the peculiar and most defenseless victims of a debased and fluctuating currency, which offers continual profits to the money changer at their cost. What 1 have read, my fellow citizens, is not the statement of a Republican convention, but of a Democratic convention, the most representative that ever assem bled in the country. Senators and men In public life today, leaders In their re spectative states, thus (Renounce the Democratic convention held In the city of Chicago. They speak words of truth and soberness. You cannot debase the currency of tbe United States without degrading the public honor. A GREAT DEMONSTRATION In Honor of Congressional Candidate Grove L. Johnson Southern Pacific Sound Money Clubs Furnish the Bone and Sinew—John son's Defense of Himself. STOCKTON. Oct. 10.—The demonstra tion in honor of Grove L. Johnson, the Republican candidate for congress in this district to succeed himself, was one of the biggest political demonstrations ever seen in Central California. Sacra mento, the home of the candidate, had planned to take possession of Stockton and have the first parade of the march ing clubs of that city and particularly of the railroad shops here. They suc ceeded in both designs. The city was elaborately decorated and Illuminated. Sound money clubs have been fonynd in each of the divisions of the Southern Pacific shops. The district central committee had charge of the excursion. The applica tions for room were so numerous that it was evident that without making ex tra arrangements it would be impossible to get the entire company dowiv. All of the clubs were in uniform and supplied with torches and they held pos session of the streets for more than an hour. The parade was disbanded at the pa vilion where an audience of 5000 people was waiting to hear Mr. Johnson speak. The pavilion meeting was presided over by P. A. Buell, who introduced the con gressman. Mr. Johnson spoke for some time on protection and sound money and was frequently interrupted by applause. He also defended himself on the funding bill proposition, using the same argu ments set forth in his reply to questions on the same subject by Mr. Steffans of Sacramento. GRAIN CROPS. Wheat Yield Is Small and Poor—Corn Is Good. WASHINGTON, Oct. 10.—The returns to the statistician of the agricultural de partment for October make the general condition of corn 90 per cent, against 91 for the month of September. The returns of yield per acre of all wheat indioate a production of 11.9 bush els which is six-tenths of a bushel less than the preliminary estimate for last year. The rate of yield of the most important states is as follows: New York, 15; Pennsylvania, 14; Ohio, 9; Michigan, 12; Indiana, !); Illinois, 13.6; Wisconsin, 14; Minnesota, 14; lowa, 15; Missouri, 10.5; Kansas, 11; Nebraska, 14; South Dakota, 10.5; North Dakota, 15; Washington, 16; Oregon, 15.5; California., 14.5. The indicated quality for the country at large is 84.4 per cent, against 85.7 last year. The averages of a few selected states are: Illinois, 80; Minnesota, 89; lowa, 83; Kansas, 81; Nebraska, 84; South Dakota, 90; North Dakota, 87; Washington, 85; Oregon, S7; California, 94. The' wheat crop is generally short in quantity and poor in quality, owing to unfavorable weather, drouth at seeding time, deficiency of snow protection and excessive rains after harvest, producing scanty growth, shriveled grains and rust. The worst is in the great region from Ohio to Kansas and adjoining states. Crops are fairly good in the east.

IN THE QUEEN'S DOMINIONS Anti-German Feeling Grows in Intensity THE ZANZIBAR INCIDENT Cause Almost Sufficient for an Open Rupture The Czar's Visit to France Causes No Dissatisfaction In England—A Talc of a Happy Family Associated Press Special Wlr" LONDON, Oct. 10.—(Copyright 1596 ) —The dispatch of British naval rein forcements to Zanzibar has renewed interest in the situation there and <s universally interpretated as a demon stration against Germany, as the condi tion of affairs in Zanzibar do not justi fy such measures. It Is admitted here that Germany had the technical right to remove the khalid from her consu late at Zanzibar, but the ostentatious method adopted and the crowing tone of the Geman press in connection with the affair, openly declaring that the measure was a slap in the face for Great Britain, has acted like a bellows to the anti-German fire burning in this country. The Spectator urges the government immediately to annex Zanzibar as an answer to Germany's unfriendly act. The queen and the pope have ex changed cordial letters upon the occas ion of the sixtieth anniversary of her majesty's reign. The pope, after con gratulating her and sending his bpst wishes, thanked the queen in grateful terms for the freedom of worship en joyed by Roman Catholics throughout the British empire. An important feature of the British comment on the czar's visit to Paris has been the equanimity with which tho incident was regarded. This may lie accounted for by the fact that Great Britain, since her estrangement from Germany, has been eager to re;y rd the czar's visit and the demonstrations of the French people as an offset to the dreibund and a humiliation to Germany. It is evident, too, that the British re lations with France have in no way grown worse since the czar's visit to Balmoral. Remarks like that of the Roma, which says the drelbund will be in a perilous condition if an entente between Russia, France and Great Brit ain shall be brought about, are being quoted in the English newspapers with considerable satisfaction. It is almost impossible to exaggerate the feeling in Great Britain against Germany at the present moment, caused by offensive articles in the German press. The Globe epitomizes (he general opinion of the British press in the re mark: "If Great Britain Is so unfor tunate as to Incur the anger of Ger many, we have no doubt as to the re sult." A HAPPY FAMILY Lady Scott, mrnther-in-law of Earl Russell, was arrested at the Hotel In strand last evening. The charge against her is criminal libel preferred by Earl Russell. She was arraigned at the Bow steet police court today In company with two youths who are included in the charge. Earl Russell has attained much un pleasant notoriety through divorce pro ceedings brought against him by his wife, daughter of the late Sir Claude Edward Scott, and the litigation grow ing out of the suit. Lady Russell ob tained a separation, and later sued for restoration of conjugal rights and was defeated in April, 1895. After the preliminary examination of Lady Scott and the two youths had been concluded today, the case was ad journed until Monday. Lady Scott was released on furnishing bail in the sum of $3000.

THE CASE OF THE CASTLES Loses All Its Elements of Mys tery GUILT FRANKLY ADMITTED Mrs. Castle Simply Stole the Things and Hid Them The Lady Is Suffering From Diseases Not Infrequently Accompanied by Aggravated Kleptomania. Associated Press Special Wire LONDON, Oct. 10.—Walter M.

He said to friends: " I don't know how I can ever buckle to again. lam dazed by this calamity." A cousin of the Castles, at present In this city, said to a representative of the Associated Press today: "The charge is absolutely ridiculous. Why, two large packing cases full of presents were sent to my house in Hyde Park direct from the stores where the goods were bought. How could they be stolen? The Castles have been abroad a year and had a large number of commissions from society friends in Francisco, and they have also been large purchasers of knlcknacks, etc." Evidence will be produced that some time ago Mrs. Castle's health was such that Dr. Gabriel of this city was called. He found Mrs. Castle suffering from pains in the head. It was settled yesterday evening that no application will be made for bail be fore the prisoners are brought up on remand on Tuesrlay.

A PLAIN CASE. NEW YORK, Oct. 10.—A dispatch to the World from London concerning the arrest there of Mr. and Mrs. Walter M. Castle of San Francisco, says: Their solicitors frankly admitted to a repre sentative of the World today Mrs. Cas tle's guilt. Michael Abrahams, their solicitor, is a criminal lawyer of wide experience and great ability. He de clared today: ' "I have had her examined by some leading specialists, and have no doubt that the udge will admit that her symp toms are such as to warrant a defense of kleptomania. She suffers from pains in the head, from complete loss of mem ory, and from other irregularities, which, according to medical science, are known to be frequently associated with delusions. "Her case will be decided In a month or six weeks. We will apply for bail for her again next Wednesday, and I hope she will be released on the bond we can offer. "The whole fact of the matter is, in short, that Mrs. Castle did take these articles, but her husband is perfectly innocent of any knowledge whatever cf her doing so." , GARFIELD'S BROTHER.

COLOR AND AROMA OF COFFEE There are two things which people imagine are guides to the goodness of coffee which are really of no conse quence whatever. They are the color of the decoction and the aroma of th • coffee when ground, or as It escapes from the pot in drawing. The color is due almost entirely to the roasting. This is true, also, of tea. The finest coffees and teas when properly roasted and prepared to give out their finest flavors will color the water but little. The real essences which give the flavor have practically no color.

Lord' only knows. Did the fear pass off? Not until the last whlz zine shell had passed over my bend. I had a like experience In every engagement, with hut two exceptions." General Nelson A. Miles' answer to the question was as follows: "Concerning the rffeet of being under fire for tbe first time. I can say that the first battle scene was Inspiriting and ex hilarating, and I do not remember that it produced trie least trepidation—nothing like as much as the effect afterward in some mere sanguinary engagements..-when we bad learned In realize tile serious effect of the enemv'*. fire." General °lr-kles said': "Before the hat! opened Tilt shaky, hut soon recovered and had 1 uio -nueh to do to think about danger. It I t colonel at that time. The higher the rank the more responsibility, and the man in the line with little to do except to wait for the enemy to shoot at h'm Is in the most trying position of all." —New York Sun. THE PRTRON WALLS. The mornlnß beams that cross the sky With crimson banners git) Wing; Thf fragrant airs that pans me by, On morning's breezes blowing; The Sabbath chime that softly calls Across the- pHiceful valleys, No comfort bears within the walls. No CheftHng fancies rallies. O. not for them behind the high, Forbidding walls the glory Of velvet sod or azure sky. Or bird-song's joyous story. Not theirs tbe haunts of other days Along the placid river: Not theirs tlie woodland song of praise To God, the gracious giver. We give to them the daily round Of grinding degradation; The nightly hour of grief profound And somber nn'ditatlon. / at * * * * * God gives him mere who wanders back, On memory's heavy pinions, Along life's dark and troubled track To happy youth's dominions. The grated doors and heavy walls Evanish like the lances Of parting sun, as softly falls A voice his soul entrances; A mother's voice the years have stilled, A mother's love revealing. From out tbe darkness- vision-Ailed, In tender accents stealing. ****** Mercy is God's; our judgments He On logic's Unei unbending; He grants the saddened spirit's cry, The dreams of evening sending; Within the grim, forbidding walls The dteamt of evening sending; The sons of men. His puppet thralls, Within His hand contending. —Frank Putnam in Chicago Times-Herald.
