LINCOLN, Neb., Nov. 6.—Mr. Bryan
today gave out the following:
"To bimetallists of the United States-
Conscious that millions of loyal hearts
are saddened by temporary defeat, I
beg to offer a word of hope and encour
agement. No cause ever had supporters
more brave, earnest and devoted than
those who have espoused the cause of
bimetallism. They have fought from
conviction, and have fought with all
the zeal that conviction Inspires. Even
this will prove whether they are right
or wrong. Having done their duty as
they saw it, and have nothing to re
gret. The Republican candidate has
been heralded as the advance guard of
prosperity. If his policies bring real
prosperity to the American people, those
who opposed him w ill share ln that pros
perity. If, on the other hand, his poli
cies prove an Injury to the people gen
erally, those supporters who do not be
long to the office holding class or to the
privileged class, will suffer in common
with those who opporied him. The
friends of bimetallism have not been
vanquished; they simply have been
overcome.
"They believe the gold standard is a
conspiracy of the money changer:
against the welfare of the human race,
and until convinced of their error, they
will continue the warfare against it.
The contest has been waged this year
under great embarrassments and
against great odds. For the first time
during this generation the public at
tention has been centered upon the
money question as the paramount Issue,
and this has been done In spite of the
attempts upon the part of our oppo
nents to prevent It. The Republican con
vention held out the delusive hope of
international bimetallism, while Repub
lican leaders labored secretly for gold
monometallism. The gold standard
Democrats have openly advocated the
election of the Indianapolis ticket,while
they labored secretly for the election ot
the Republican ticket. Trusts and cor
porations have tried to excite fear of
lawlessness, while they have been de
fying the law, and American financiers
have boasted that they were the custo
dians of national honor, while they were
secretly bartering away the nation's
independence. But In spite of the efforts
of the administration and its support
ers, ln spite of the threats of the money
lenders at home and abroad. In spite
of coercion practiced by trusts and syn
dicates, in spite of the enormous Re
publican campaign funds, and in spite
of the Influence of tho hostile dally
press, bimetallism has almost triumph
ed ln its first great fight. The loss of a
few states, and that, too, by a very
small plurality, has defeated bimetal
lism for the present, but bimetallism
emerges from the contest stronger than
It was four months ago.
"I desire to commend the work of the
three national committees which have
Joined In the management of this cam
paign. Co-operation between members
of distinct political organizations is al
ways very difficult, but it has been les-s
so this year than usual. Interest in the
common cause of great importance has
reduced friction to a minimvftn. I hereby
express my personal gratitude to the
Individual members as well as the ex
ecutive officers of the national com
mittees of the Democratic, Populist and
silver parties for their efficient, unsel
fish and untiring labors. They have
laid the foundation for future success,
and will be remembered as pioneers
when victory is at last secured. No
personal or political friend need grieve
because of my defeat. My ambition has
been to secure Immediate legislation,
rather than to enjoy honors of office.
Therefore defeat brings me no personal
feeling of loss. Speaking for the wife
wno shared my labors as well as myself,
I desire to say that we have been amply
repaid for all we have done in the love
of millions of our fellow citizens so kind
ly expressed, in the knowledge gained
by personal contact with the people and
ln the broadened sympathies, we find
full compensation for whatever efforts
we have put forth. Our hearts have been
touched by the devotion of friends and
our lives shall prove our appreciation
of the affection which we prize as the
richest reward which this campaign has
brought.
"In the face of the enemy rejoicing
ln Its victory let the roll be called for
the engagement, and urge all friends of
bimetallism to renew their allegiance to
the cause. If we are right, as I believe
ws are. we shall yet triumph. Until
convinced of his error let each advocate
of bimetallism continue to work.
"Let all the silver clubs retain their
organization, hold regular meetings and
circulate literature. Our opponents have
succeeded in this campaign and must
now put their theories to the test In
stead of talking mysteriously about
'sound money and honest dollars' they
must now elaborate and defend the
financial system. Every step taken by
them should be publicly considered by
silver clubs. Our cause has prospered
most where the money question has been
longest discussed among the people.
During the next four years it will be
studied all over this nation, even more
than It has been studied in the past.
"The year 1900 is not far away; be
fore that year arrives international bi
metallism will cease to deceive, before
that year arrives those who have called
themselves gold standard Democrats
will become bimetallists ar.d be with
out a party or become Republicans and
thus open enemies. Before that year
arrives trusts will have convinced still
more people that the trust Is a menace
to the private welfare and to the public
safety. Before that year arrives the evils
of the gold standard will be even more
evident than they are now and the peo
ple will be ready to demand the Ameri
can financial policy for American peo
ple and will join with us in the immedi
ate restoration of free and unlimited
coinage of gold and silver at the pres
ent legal ratio of 16 to 1, without waiting
for the aid or consent of any other na
tion. W. J. BRYAN."
Mr. Bryan spent the forenoon today
preparing his statement to the public.
He continues to receive inquiries con
cerning the result of the election and
many, accepting his acquiescence in the
result as final, pledge him their support
in continuing the fight for silver nnd for
the presidential nomination four years
hence. He has wired his thanks to the
national Democratic committee through
Senator Jones for the work done in his
behalf.
BRYAN AT HOME.
MeKinley's Message to His Opponent-
Plans for the Future.
LINCOLN, Neb.. Nov. 6.—Mr. Bryan
today received the following reply to
his message of congratulation to Presi
dent-elect McKinley:
"Hon. W. J. Bryan, Lincoln, Neb.: I
acknowledge the receipt of your courte
ous message of congratulation with
thanks, and beg you to receive my best
wishes for your health and happiness.
(Signed) "WILLIAM M'KINLEY."
Mr. Bryan has replied to some of the
offers of employment at high salaries
which he has received since election day.
declining them on the ground that he de -
sires to be free to devote a large portlo/i
of his time in tho future to the advocacy
of bimetallism.
He said in reply to questions, that he
had not arranged the details of his plans,
but that he would enter upon no line of
work that would Interfere with his main
purpose. He has agreed to address a pub
lic meeting In Denver at an early day,
but beyond' this has made no engage
ments fdr the Immediate future.
A BOSTON MESSAGE.
BOSTON, Nov. 6.—The Massachu
setts Bimetallic union has sent a let
ter to Mr. Bryan at Lincoln, Neb., in
which the sentiment is expressed that
the propositions that the value of money
depends upon its quantity as compared
with the work for it to do; that money
should be stable in value and the ser
vant of mankind and not its master, as
Is now the case, and that an enhancing
money standard are truths a majority cf
Americans will yet learn.
NOT DISCOURAGED
DENVER. Nov. 6.—Senator Henry M.
Teller arrived here from the east today.
In an interview he said: "I do not think
the Republican party will do anything
for silver during the coming four years.
The declaration of the St. T.ouis plat
form amounts to nothing with., limita
tion put upon It Resides that, the men
who dictated the St. Louis platform are
opposed to bimetallism, Internationally
or otherwise. McKinley. it seems to me.
has shown bzy his speeches that be will
be the advocate and supporter of the
gold standard on the ground that it is a
better standard than bimetallism.
"During the four years to come I ex
pect to see the Republican party aban
don all pretense to a desire to secure in
ternational bimetallism, ar.d the con
test will be made between the gold
standard supporters and the organized
hosts of bimetallism. I think that four
years from now people will be sufficient
ly educated to understand the danger
of the gold standard, and the party that
stands for bimetallism in 1890 by the
United States alone will be successful.
•'There is no reason why we should be
discouraged. Our candidate was all we
could desire and performed his part to
perfection. We must not look backward
but forward.
"The silver forces have a magnificent
organization and now for the first time
the fight is transferred from the silver
states to the whole country."
A STEAMBOAT EXPLOSION.
CLEVELAND, 0., Nov. 6.—A spe
cial from East Liverpool says: A ter
rific explosion at a point up the river
shook the buildings along the water
front in this city at 5:30 oclock tonight.
The first definite news of the accident
was brought to the city by the Pitts
burg and Wheeling packet Bedford. Her
officers reported that a small craft, sup
posed to be carrying nitro-glycerlne,
exploded near Georgetown, four miles
cast of he-re. The Bedford was lifted out
of the water by the terrific explosion.
Georgetown cannot be reached tonight
to learn the extent of the damage.
COIN AND CURRENCY.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 6.—Assistant
Secretary Curtis went to New York to
day to consult Assistant Treasurer Jor
dan on the subject of accepting the
large amount of gold now being of
fered in exchange for currency. It Is
probable that every effort will be made
to accommodate persons desiring cur
rency, which will be shipped from the
subtreasuries having a large surplus
to others where the demand is greater.

ADDRESS TO LEAGUERS.
CINCINNATI, 0., Nov. 6.—Upon the
suggestion of the advisory committee of
the national league, President D. D.
Wondmansee has Issued the following
address:
To the Members of the Republican
Clubs of the United States—Greeting-
The splendid victory of Tuesday, in
which you took a conspicuous part, is
a heritage to every citizen who believes
In good government. I congratulate you
upon the outcome of this memorable
political contest. Many of you have
labored to bring about this result, with
a zeal that has known no weariness.
The effect of your loyal service has been
felt in every state where the fight has
been fiercest. On behalf of our organi
zation I extend to you grateful acknowl
edgments.
The past of the league is history. We
are now concerned about its future. It
is the ambition of those who are most in
terested in our league that its Influence
for good may be enlarged and that its
position in state and national politics
may be elevated and maintained. The
election to the presidency of William
McKinley, a man who was ever a friend
of the league and one who appreciates
its value, will All our hearts with re
newed hope and courage.
The debts of the league, that have so
long been a menace to its usefulness,
have been paid. With a clean record,
let us at once begin the campaign of 1898.
The Republican party faces responsi
bilities today that will seriously affect
the American people. The hard cam
paign which has Just ended was made
doubly hard by the silent forces that had
been at work Tor years to undermine
our financial policy. Let us use the
league between campaigns as a counter
acting influence favorable to our com
mon cause. Make all McKinley clubs
permanent clubs or consolidate those
that are in your locality. Join your state
league without delay. During the win
ter months have regular meetings to
study and discuss political questions.
Scatter literature as freely as has'been
done for years by the Bimetallic league
so that when the actual battle of an
other campaign Is upon us our people
will already have been educated and
our victory then will become an easy
one.
Again congratulating you, I bespeak
your earnest and cordial support tor the
success of the league of Republican
clubs. Yours sincerely,
D. D. WOODMANSEE.

MRS CASTLE IS CONVICTED
And Sentenced to Imprisonment Without
Hard Labor
SenttoWormwood Scrubbs and Dressed
In Prison Garb—Her Early Re
lease Is Promised.
Associated Press Special Wire
LONDON. Nov. 6.—The trial of Mr.
and Mrs. Walter M. Castle of San Fran
cisco, charged with shoplifting, took
place In the sessions house of Clerken
well today and resulted In Mr. Castle be
ing acquitted and Mrs. Castle being
sentenced to three months' Imprison
ment without hard labor.
Arriving at Wormwood Scrubbs pris
on Mrs. Castle was taken to the infirm
ary. After a description of her had been
entered on the books according to the
regular routine she was clad in the
prison dress. Her sentence being for
three months only she will not be obliged
to have her hair cropped.
Mr. Hodson of the United States em
bassy, on leaving sessions, remarked,
"We shall get her out within a week."
The Associated Press has been in
formed that Mr. Castle was allowed to
accompany his wife to the prison. Upon
arriving in the office she became vio
lently hysterical again and seemed to
be totally dazed. She did not know at
all where she was.
The usual formalities were observed
without deviation at the prison, no In
structions having been received from
the home office to treat Mrs. Castle's as
a special case. The prison doctor, how-"
ever, immediately ordered her to be re
moved to the hospital and detailed two
nurses to attend her.
There was another painful scene when
the husband came to take leave of his
wife. Mr. Castle bore up well through
the terrible ordeal and devoted him
self to trying to console his wife, prom
ising to come and take her away as noon
as it was possible. The doctor ordered a
special diet for Mis. Castle and asked
to have Dr. Balmore. the chief medical
attendant at the prison, summoned in
the morning to take charge of her case.
She was clad in the hospital garb and
was given a comfortable bed, the nurses
in attendance being especially instruct
ed to treat her with great care. She be
came more calm later In the evening,
though she constantly relapsed Into hys
terical outbreaks, crying: "Why don't
some one take me home?" "Where am
I?" "I don't belong here." "Will nobody
help me?"
The prison doctor said: "This wo
man Is not right. This is surely a case
for the home ofiice officials,"
It Is thought Mrs. Castle is not likely
to be released for ten days, but this Is
conjecture. The informant from whom
this information came stated that even
the officials of the prison who are ac
customed to such scenes were deeply
sympathetic.
MEXICO'S GOOD.
Thought to Result From the Election of
McKinley.
CITY OF MEXICO, Nov. 6.—No pre
vious presidential election in the Unit
ed States has created such excitement
and Interest among all classes as the
present one for business men. Bankers
and manufacturers frit that Mexican in
terests demanded the election of Mc-
Kinley. The Mexican Herald says: For
Mexico, the declaration of the American
people in favor of the gold standard
means continued prosperity here. It sig
nifies large dividends for our mills and
banks, thus carrying Into effect many
large and Important undertakings for
which capital would not have been ob
tained in the United States had Bryan
been elected. The result is for the gen
eral good of Mexico.
ENGLAND WON T EVACUATE.
LONDON, Nov. 6.—The officials of tho
foreign office deny that there is any
truth in the report given currency this
morning in the Dally Graphic that the
marquis of Salisbury had decided to
evacuate the island of Cyprus.

COMMERCIAL CONDITIONS
Volume of Business Shows
Small Increase
DEALERS IN STAPLE GOODS
Confidently Expect the Early Revival of
Jobbing Trade
But the Season Is Late and No Boom
May Be Expected During the
Current Year.
Associated Press Special Wire
NEW YORK, Nov. 6.—Bradstreet's
tomorrow will say: Business was prac
tically suspended throughout the coun
try early this week and there is little In
crease in the volume since the election
compared with like periods In the pre
ceding week. But manufacturers and
jobbers are more Inclined to purchase in
advance instead of for near-by wants
only and In a few lines, notably wool,
cotton, iron and steel, a larger volume
of purchases is reported. The mer
chants generally share the belief ln tho
early revival as Indicated by hardening
staples and in the increase in quotations
in addition to those given in preceding
weeks. Sales of cotton goods have been
freer and some mills are better employ
ed. Woolen mills also report more or
ders and a tendency to proffer higher
cost goods. Numerous industrial estab
lishments which have started up within
two days report being offered large of
fers if they would sell for 1597 delivery
at present prices. Many Rhode Island
manufacturers are making prepara
tions for a larger output than anticipat
ed and that orders contingent on election
results, notably ln the lumber and jewel
ry lines, are now being filled. Owing
to the lateness of the season, few have
regarded the outlook as promising much
in the naturu of a boom during the cur
rent year. At a few northwestern com
mercial centers large orders have been
received from country merchants within
a few days and ln Georgia farmers have
met their obligations this autumn more
promptly than for years past and south
ern merchants and manufacturers are
reported looking ahead confidently to a
marked improvement in buisiness In the
near future. The total exports of wheat,
flour Included, from both coasts of the
United States and from Montreal this
week amounts to 3,472.000 bushels,
against 3,628.000 bushels last week; 2,
--560.000 bushels ln the week one year ago;
as compared with 3,885,000 bushels in the
corresponding week in 1892. Exports of
Indian corn amount to 2,247,000 bushels
this week, about 100,000 bushels less
than last week, nearly twice as much as
in the corresponding week a year ago
and more than in like weeks In the three
next preceding years.
Business failures throughout the Unit
ed States this week number 223, 23 few
er than last week, 33 less than in the cor
responding week of 1895. 18 fewer than
In the like period of 1894 and 110 less than
in the first week ln November, 1893.
There were 50 business failures re
ported from Canada this week, as com
pared with 37 last week, 39 in the corre
sponding week a year ago, 42 two years
ago and with 28 in the first week of No
vember, 1893.
DUN & CO.'S REVIEW.
R. G. Dun & Co.'s weekly review of
trade tomorrow will say: A great rev
olution has been effected this week in the
conditions that control business. It
could not be in any fair degree reflected
as yet in transactions or in records, but
there is ample evidence already that a
crushing weight has been lifted and roll
ed away and the business world has be
gun to adjust Itself in a state of freedom
and security which It has not known for
years. It was not strictly logical that
wheat advanced 5 cents, reaching 82
cents for November and 85 cents for De
cember, and heavy realizing of profits
showed perception of the fact. Western
receipts were only 6.087,159 bushels,
against 8.019,000 last year, and Atlantic
exports. Hour included, were only 1,588.
--357, against 1,790,375 last year. A grow
ing disposition appears among farmers
to hold wheat for better prices than now
realized, although at present any ad
vance checks buying for export. Spec
ulation in cotton was also excited on the
theory that the mills would start up, as
many have done and would meet a large
demand for goods. But the advance was
met by realizing sales and a slight reac
tion. It will be all the better for busi
ness if bright hopes do not hoist prices
too fast. The election immediately stif
fened prices of pig iron, which reached
$12 at Pittsburg for Bessemer and the
certainty that many large orders for
buildings and bridges and other finish
ed forms would not become operative,
Justifies some advance.
The future of this trade now depends
upon the extent of Increase in demand
for finished products of iron and steel,
which is likely to be materially affected
by the course pursued by various com
binations. The billet pool, which is still
openly undersold at Pittsburg and has
caused no end of disturbance In business
by favoring one class of producers to the
detriment of another, have been in ses
sion here and is said to have changed
Its basis of allotment so as to secure
fairer results. The nail combination is
now threatened with a hostile league of
Jobbers and producers and is openly
undersold. The bar combination not-
withstanding its large rebate, is still
demanding more than the prices at which
steel bars are sold in great quantity. A
slight advance in sheetings and print
cloths is the only change which yet ap
pears in the market tor cotton goous.
Practically no change has yet appeared
in woolens but the reported purchase!
ot w ool.lncludlng one ot 11,000,000 pounds
ot territory, said to have been made by
a syndicate, amounted to 18,561,000
pounds, against 5,621,350 last year,
and 5.215.000 ln IM2. The aver

in his accounts and pretended that two
masked men had taken him at night

Associated Press Special Wire
CHICAGO, Nov. 6.—A special to a
morning paper from Washington says:
An extra session following immediately
the Inauguration of Mr. McKinley is, in
the prevailing opinion, certain. No one
professes to have word from Mr. Kin
ley direct on the subject, but there is
good authority fori saying that Mark
Hanna, during a recent visit in New
York, said enough to give the impression
that an extra session is on the Republic
an program.
Senator Quay believes an extra session
Is certain. That is what he had in his
mind last Saturday when he said: "We
shall have a new tariff bill within eight
months after MeKinley's inauguration."
Senator Quay has the habit of speaking
by the card, and to get a new tariff bill
passed by that time would require the
calling of congress together as soon af
ter March 4th, next, as possible.
VOTES IN THE SENATE.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 6.—The next
senate, it is believed, will stand: Repub
licans 44, Democrats 33, Populists and in
dependents 13. This table takes all
states out of the doubtful column, plac
ing Kentucky and North Carolina ln the
Republican column, as Senator Butler
said today a free Filver Republican
probably would be returned by tha
fusionlßts: Delaware in the Democrat
ic column and Kansas and South Dakota
In the Independent and Populist column.
This will prevent the Republicans from
taking control of the senate unless some
of those who bolted the Republican
platform at St. Louis should return.
It is difficult to estimate the exact
standing of the next senate on the money
question owing to the new alignment of
the parties in the recent campaign. Men
who have been pronounced silver men
have been supporting the Republican
platform and candidates, and pronounc
ed gold men have supported the Demo
cratic platform and candidates. Per
kins of California, Wo'.cott of Colorado.
