the Democratic state convention to

Chairman Hinckley announced that
the itate commiu e had selected Tom
as F Grady of New York for tempo

Mr Grady was greeted with faint
3iandcJapplng He started in at once

fj < om spectators hr e glees He
said in part
A loyal representatives of Demo

bled to again declare your faith In
Democratic principles your respect for
Democratic authority and your confi
dome In Democratic success In this
respect you differ from some who for
many years were associated with you
un their profession of Democracy yu

purely selfish character of their polit I
i leal actions and who a now leagued
I wit yur political opponents denounc
ing Democratic principles denying
Democratic authority and aiding in so
leer a they may to defeat the Demo
cratic candidates You are not how
ever to be discouraged
I because of the desertion of those whose
j adherence to or dependence upon tin
I money power controls their political
C action
I The question of silver money stan
f d r may be of some importance
p among the issues to be determined In
the coming presidential election but
in my opinion It is fa from beIng the
only one of great Importance to be de
ddwl by the votes of free men who
cannot be deterred by Intimidation nor i
Influenced by bribes I offends no
me sense of polUical propriety that
today the nominee who was the can
didate of the Republican party ha b
come the candidate of the money pow
er He would never have been selected i
at St Louis to lead the Republican
hosts but fo the friendship and gen I
erosity of syndicates unfairly favored
by legislation with which his name ha
0 been conspicuously coupled Their
r money had been used to corrupt
primarier and influence delegates In his
favor Their money had been promised
I in enormous sums to secure his elec

LINCOLN Neb September IGThe
Lansing theatre was crowded to the
doors this afternoon the attraction
being Hon Thomas E Watsons
dress on the Issues of the campaign
Mr Watson was introduced by State
Chairman Edmiston and spoke for an
hour and a half Mr Watsons speech
was a defense of the Populist national
platform and in no sense did the vice
presidential candidate refer to Mr
Sewall or to the recent election inane
Coming to the silver question Mr
Watson showed the manner of put
ting a nation in bondage be dwel
ling upon the situation in Egypt and
the recent absorption of the Fiji Is
lands by Great Britain
Quoting from a recent speech of
Major McKinleys he showed the in
consistency of protection and gold
standard finance contending that
whereas a high tariff would raise I
prices of commodities the apprecia
tion in the value of money under gold
monometallism would depress them
Mr Watson warmly eulogized Mr
Bryan and when he said I sincerely
hope and trust he will b elected he
brought out tremendous and long con
tinued applause
He was particularly emphatic in de
claring that under no circumstances
would ing he withdraw from the race say
They put me on sentinel duty t
hold the party In the national campaign
paign to hold a place on the national
ticket They selected the post of duty
and without solicitude effort 01 desire
on my part they selected me to fill
that post of duty and no matter what
any Republican newspaper or Demo
cratic newspaper may say upon that
subject I shall hold that post of duty
until the last gun in this campaign
is fired Applause and l cries of Good
for Wntson5 zz z
Mr Watsons address was surpris I
ingly free from personal references or i
abuse though he was press by his I I
partisan auditors t venture that line
o attack A reference t Major Mc I
Kinley brought a remark from one in I
tlt crowd He dont pay his debts
followed by hissing and a response
fro Watson that he would not des
cend to personal reflections on any
candidate no matter how he differed
politically He was cheered
Mr Watson left tonight for Alma
eb wh > r he speaks tomorrow and
will go from there to Colorado

more than forty huts occupied by em
ployes with their families were
burned Women were driven out in
scant attire and children in their night
gowns and compelled to lies to Ma i
riquite for refuge Most o these I
houses were looted
Ablebodied men about the place
were given their choice of joining the
insurgents ranks or being hanged to
th nearest tree Those who hesti
tated were mercilessly put to the ma
chetes The wives of those Spanish
volunteers living upon the plantation
were subjected t gross Indignities
Their husbands formed part of a
small Spanish garrison near the scene
of pillage and the rebel chief by hold
ing the women a hostages hoped to
influence the surrender of this fort

dressed an audience of 2500 at the Audi I
General Buckner was the first speaker

tion He contended that if the stamp of j

piec of silver or of gold can give I a I
different value from that in a commercial I
dIferent vaue

Last summer urder the regular or
ganization of Democratic party meet
ings were called In every county in every 1
state in the union Delegates were ap
pointed to state conventions and stato
conxentions appointed delegates to the
Chicago convention What were those
delegates instructed to do In nearly
every county in the United States the
first resolution passed by the county con
ventions was to reattlrm the principles of
Democracy When the delegates thus
instructed to discharge their duties a
Democrats went to the state conventions
those state conventions almost without
an exception reattirmed the principles of
Democracy and the delegates that they
sent to the Chicago convention were ob
liged to support Democratic principles
Ever sentiment of personal honor of
partisan duty compelled them to arrange
their platform on Democratic lines and
discard from It everything that Was not
Applause What did they do They
went to Chicago sad they arranged a
ulatform from which the
had vanished I defy any man to at
tempt to point to a single article or a
single line of that platform which enun
ciates Democratic doctrine It announces
as principles of the Democratic party
principles which he have combatted for a
hundred years during the time of Jeffer
son to this good hour And yet fellow
citizens they have placed upon that plat
form a man for candidate who has de
clared that he Is no Democrat And yet
fellow citizens they say that we must
support their candidate and their platform
because It was done regularly That re
minds me of an Illustration which my
distinguished friend made a short time
ago He said under the claim of regularity
ity Benedict Arnold had the right to
claim the support of the patriots of the
revolution He was regularly commis
sioned under the principals of West Point
and the Highlands by General Washing
ton He Issued orders through his staff
regularly and in an entirely regular sta
He issued orders which disposed the
Issue disposd army
under his command and placed It In such
a position that the enemy could come
upon It and
It was all done i11 perfect regularity
The only thing wanting was a little mat
I ter of principle Applause Nor did it
seem to be In the minds of those gentle
men assembled in Chicago professing to
represent Democracy They said what
we have done was done regularly
Under that theory General Washing
ton and the continental army were bolt
er because they would not follow
Arnold In his treason Because we will
not follow these genlemen of Chicago in
their defection from Democratic princi
ples we are to be culled boIlers I
In the course of hla speech General i
Buckner mentioned the name of the
Democratic presidential nominee and no1 I
sooner had the wo d Bryan left his I r
mouth than the houe was the scene of I
the wildest demonstration of the even
Ing The cheering continued until the
chairman of the meeting was compelled
tp ask the audience to give the general a
respectful hearing
At the concusion of General Buckners
speech Colonel John R Fellows was In
That silver dollars and paper dollars of
this government today were equal to gold
he said was due to the method of the
government by which they were ex
changeable for gold and that the govern
ment kept enough reserve to make Its
credit good before all the world for the
redemption of Its promise that it will pay
its debts In gold What if that function
should be destroyed Oh says Mr I
Bryan I believe If you would give us
Tree and unlimited coinage at the ratio of
16 to 1the demand for silver by this new
Issue you have given It would raise It at
that ratio to a level with gold I would
be worth 2 an ounce Well we
simply say but suppose It should not Mr
Bryan what then Suppose the com
mercial world refuse to accept i at that
valued Have you ever stopped to think
what an awful calamity would be pre
cipitated upon this country If that single
ftef Mr Bryan ul in behalf ft which
he challenges the votes of his countrymen
should not be realized a a fact not one
hour would your gold remain as a circu
lating medium in this country

Believes That the Recent Letter
Will Make Thousands of Silver
the most astounding proposition I
have yet heard advanced by any
man and it will make us thousands
of votes
Such was the exclamation of
Chairman Faulkner of the Demo
cratic congressional committee this
morning ter after reading Carlisles let
The sting to this letter l is con
cealed in the midst of a lot of ver
biage but It comes boldly to the
front on careful reading contin
ued Senator Faulkner In view of
the secretarys letter to me and his
previous statements I can only
look upjn his recent attitude a
something remarkable I would
force another issue of bonds In
this letter Mr Carlisle says that
under such conditions free coin
age the government would be com
pelled from the beginning to ex
change gold for silver dollars and
their paper representatives when
ever demanded just a it now ex
changes gold for its own notes when
Such an announcement contem
plates an entire reversal of the es
tablished policy of this government
and would be a violation of the law
itself The silver certificate on its
face is redeemable in silver dollars
and now the secretary comes along
with an advocacy of its redemption
in gold and not only the silver cer
tificates but the silver dollars them
Not more than two weeks age I
received a letter from the secre
tary which I gave publicity through
the press in which he said that gold
had never been demanded in ex
change for silver during his admin
istration and the records of the de
partment failed to show that such
demands had ever been made
The letter of the secretary pub
lished this morning is notice to tha >
bondholders and syndicates that if
the treasury deems it necessary they
wlll redeem silver with gold I is
the proposed establishment of a con
dition that will compel another is
sue of bonds When the policy of
redeeming the greenback in gold
was inaugurated greenbacks were
cornered and became the subject
of speculation When treasury notes
were held to be redeemable in gold
they likewise became the object
of solicitude on the part of the men
engaged in the business of cornering
money Now we have the astound
ing proposition to pay gold for sil
ver certificates and induce another

I Turkish official circles have issued a
I circular in which they say they cannot
understand either the blind rageof the
English press against the Turkish
government or the sympathy expressed
for the Armenian anarchists whose I
plans are merely a repetition of the
bombthrowing of the Irish Fenians
and the menacing of English buildings I
for the purpose of compelling the Brit

declared have formed an infamous

NEW YORK Sep 16A Sun spe
cial from Washington says The assignment I
signment of two additional warships
to the Mediterranean fleet is accepted
as evidence o a decisive move on the
part of the European powers in dealIng
with the Turkish situation
ing t Trkish uaton and
while It Is not admitted even yet that
the Bancroft which sailed yesterday
Bancrot sie yeerday 1 I
Is under orders to proceed to the Bos
phorus there Is no longer the slight
est question as to her mission The I
administration proposes she shall be
the United States guardsMp a Con
stantinople whether the porte grants I
the necessary permission o refuses It
In case of refusal this government will
hold that it has never accepted the
Berlin agreement a excluding it from I
naval representation in Turkish waters
and that not being a party to that I
agreement this country cannot be ex
cluded under the law o nations
from due naval representation there
The departure of the Bancroft to be
followed In three days by the Cincin
nati bound for the same station Is
looked upon in official circles a indi
cating some
by this government in Turkish affairs
That Turkey has not given this govern
ment permission to send the Bancrof
or any o Its war vessels through the
Bosphorus is not denied and the ob
ject In dispatching them with the pos
sibility of the pones making a firm
protest against their presence Is not
I explained at the department
Especially In view of the circum
stances that Turkey in response to our
I request to permit a vessel to pass the
forts last January expressly forbade
I her to do so gives additional interest
to the attitude that may be maintained
by the administration with reference to
I Turkey The fact tat both vessels
have been supplied with charts of leI
Bosphorus and the waters near Con
I stantinople emphasize the strong im
pression that eventually Minister Ter
I rell will have at Ms Immediate call
I two vessels of war capable of landing
a fairly large force for the preservation
I of American lives and Interests around
the United States legation
I To force the Bosphorus and anchor
there two ships off the Turkish capital
i would not be equivalent to an unfriend
ly act toward Turkey in the opinion
of the state department officials al
though they prefer the permission be
j I given
il I The general opinion is that when
both vessels have
veses reached the Levant
I the porte will yield to the
prte 11 urgent so
licitation of Mr Terrill and the permit
will be Issued
i I i The departure of the Bancroft Is
said to have been hastened ac the in
i stance of Secretary Olney and If the
> Cincinnati can coal in time she will
sail before the close of the week The
practice vessels will go first to Fayal
for coal and thence will proceed to
Gibraltar and on to the Levant where
I she Is under orders to announce her
arrival to Minister Terrell The Cln
oinnaitl being three times the size of
the Bancroft and much faster will pro
ceed directly to the Mediterranean and
join the Bancroft at Gibraltar

Diaz in his message sal the boundary
commission as to the iiio Grande had
already solved two grave questions as
to the disputed territory The presi
dent referred to the agreement between
the two countries allowing the pas
sage of troops in pursuit of Kids In
dians which will remain In force until
the band is either exterminated or re
duced to obedience Regarding the as
sault on Nogales on August 12 by rob
bers he said the United States troops
had rendered valuable assistance in tne
pursuit of the band and that instruc
tions had been given to the Washington
legation to request the extradition or
punishment of the guilty parties The
agreement as to the Guatemalan boun
dary President Diaz said had been duly
ratified and the exchange was made
on May 9 The boundary commisaljn
was engaged in its work and numerous
work was in course of erection With
regard to the PanAmerican congress
held here in August the president said
it had for its main object the discus
sion of the Monroe doctrine The con
gress was promoted with best inten
tions by Ecuador but the subject was
a delicate and difficult one Only dele
gates or the Central American govern
ments and Ecuador and Mexico attend
ed but the noble efforts of Ecuador
were not entirely lost although the
carrying out of the ideas of the congress
had been abandoned for the present
and the congress had been dissolved
A new extradition law will shortly be
presented The general elections passed
off with perfect equanimity The In

If Great Britain shall go to war she
will also plunge India Canada and Aus

The forcible passage of the Darda

JIuIU and Under a Stimulating
As warm weather wears on to its IL

the housekeeper She catches herself

There are many delicious prepara
tions of cooked cheese that may be
eaten without fear of the ind g = ston
which Is by many people Invariably as y
sociated with It If a box of bicar
I bonate of potash which ay be bought
by the ounce at the druggists is kept
In the kitchen closet and used as mucn
as a matter of course as salt all will
be well For an ordinary dish of
cheese as much of the potash as will
cover a 10cent piece will remove all
suspicion of indigestibility and not in
terfere in the least with the flavor
I One of the most popular cheese
preparations Is a fondu cooked in small
earthenware dishes It is made as fol f
I lows v
i To quarter of a pound about a large Jj
I teacupful of grated cheese add half a
small teacupful of milk in which is
dissolved as much powdered bicarbon
ate of potash as will cover a 10cent
piece with mustard pepper and salt
to taste and if liked a sprinkling of
thyme Heat this until the cheese is
evenly melted then stir In three eggs
yolks well blended and bake in a
moderate oven until nearly solid it
should look like a smooth soft baked
I custard This dish may be varied by
adding a teacupful of the crumbs of
stale loaf if the bread used is free
the fondu will be a failure but the dry
crumbs add lightness Many p oplo
who have found cheese like poison to
them will find this recipe digestible as j
well as appetizing
I It is a curious fact that the bicar
bonate of potash restores to milk the
elements that are lost by standing
therefore whereas rarely happens
new milk Is obtainable the potash may
be dispensed with It is also well worth
calling to mind that in this very pot
ash are the necessary constituents ot
human food and that all knds of
wholesome fruits and vegetables and
the juices of fresh meats contain It
and > as it Is the very essence of the
muchtalkedabout brain food the wise
housekeeper will ba glad to have her
attention drawn to It

if the ants make their nests around the
