University Students Listen

Logical Comparison of the Policies
Advocated by the National
10.— Stanford University and Palo Alto
turned out to-day to listen to the elo
quent Ben Butterworth of Ohio. Excur
sions were run from San Jose, Mountain
View and Redwood City, and over 1800
people were assembled on the grounds
when the speaking began. Inspiring mu
sic was rendered by the university and
Palo Alto bands, and two good addresses
were delivered.
John ~M. Switzer '98, president of the
University Republican Club, presided,
and delivered a snort opening speech, in
which he referred to the large number of
the members of the faculty who had come
fiver to McKinley, while not more than
three or four had announced themselves
for Bryan. He introduced Congressman
Butterworth, who was received with ap
Congressman Butterworth spoke of the
proposed constitutional amendment grant
ing the electoral franchise to women. He
said that in the BucKeye State women al
ready had a voice in public affairs, and he
was not quite sure but the people were
standing in their own light in not giving
them a vote also. "The hand that rocks
the cradle is the hand that rules the
world," and "The child is father to the
man,' 1 and "A boy is what his mother
makes him," were three epigrammatic
sentences by means of which he summed
up the whole argument in favor of the
amendment. Continuing, he said:
My countrymen, we are here to talk con
cerning what we shall do on the 3d of Novem
ber. We can do one of two th.ngs— no, we can
vote the Prohibition ticket, but I don't think
that would be wise, for if the country gets
worse they never will succeed, and if it gets
better they will not be needed, so we can do
one of two things. And only one of them is
going to be the right thing, and I am here to
tell you which is the right way, because we
think our way is the best.
No one need be misled as to what he is vot
ing for, because both parties have notified the
world just what they are going to do if ihey
are placed in power. No one doubts that they
will do this— that is, if they keep their
promise. Our friends at Chicago have told us
what they are going to do if they get control.
We have, too. Now, which shall you choose?
In the first place there is the question as to
whether we favor a protective tariff system.
College professors generally tell us that a pro
tective tariff is a bad thing and theoretically
I say "Amen," but practically I don't. A man
may tell me that theoretically I have enough
to eat, but practically I might be starving. to
death. That is a question about which I am
better able to judge than he. And so I hope
the people oi ■ California have had a lesson
which they certainly understand. Since I
have been in this State I have not found | one
man who has not said to me: "Yes," you are
right ; we have known It for three years, the
change has cost us from ten to twenty million
dollars." MqMpH^l
Mr. 'Wilson, in drafting his tariff bill, be- 1
lieved that it would be all right; he was per-!
fectly sincere. But as ministers say, "There is j
a way that seem t h good to a man, but the end
whereof is death." T* l ßfifSlFffßßg'T*j*T*lE
We were like Nebuchadnezzar, who got rich
and fat and then wanted to kick, but he kicked
himself out. And so in 1890 the people were
lea to believe they ought to have a change,
and they kicked, but they kicked themselves
Then they passed the bill leaving the tariff (
on products of the South, which is unani- I
mously Democratic, and •■ taking them off of !
your prunes, your wool, your raisins and j
lemons. But some one says that it is only a
difference of 10 per cent. He is not fair to !
himself. It may not make a very great differ
ence to have a decrease of 10 percent all along
the line, but when it strikes all in one spot as
it did in California it gets us all into trouble
and you feel it. ;
The speaker then , paid his : respects to
Castle, the fusion candidate for Coneress
in the Seventh District, and the revolu- j
tionary speeches which he is making |
throughout the district. He said:
Here our young men who have put on the
norm to defend the Government have been
called the , hired assassins of • plutocrats. I
never knew of such an unbridled exhibition of
impudence. I don't think, men of that stamp
could have any conviction whatever unless it I
be the conviction by twelve men of con
spiracy. The workiugmen, too, he describes
as .'ens and tending to peonage. I didn't
think that there was any part of our country
where a man could stand up before ian audi- i
ence and insult them in that way and yet be
applauded as this man Castle is.
Congressman Batterworth then took up
the money question, and devoted consid
erable time to the discussion of the falla
cies on which the free-silver idea was
We want no circulating medium of blather
skites. We do not need more money, but
more circulation. ; The only way to get out of
debt is to get prosperity. You say "what we
want is that a man.; can go and chuck silver
bullion into one window of the Mint and take
out silver dollars at the other. How will that
help us? Have we any to chucK? This idea
* that the Government stamp makes money is
all rot. If the Government 'can make silver
worth 100 cents it can do the same with pota
toes, wheat or iron. : What makes wheat or po
tatoes at their present value is the amount
that they will bring in the market; and silver
must go the same way.
Now, they say that I am going back on mv
record. But lam doing no such thing. I have
always opposed gold monometallism or any
other kind oi monometallism. , As soon as we
have this free silver they tell us about, we who
ere in debt will go up a flame. We need
sound money, sound credit and an honest
medium, and then we will have prosperity.
The speaker took up the plank of the
Chicago platform, denouncing President
Cleveland and the Supreme Court. ; He
stated most vehemently that Americans
have never yet been a people shackled
hand and foot; that they are not
communists; that they are a liberty
loving people." but believed in liberty with
law. He deplored the extremity to" which
they had 4 been -brought, when such de
nunciatory and incendiary sentiments as
these passed from mouth to moutn.
The address occupied : a little over an
hour in its delivery, and was followed
with marked attention. It was character
ized by 1 - touches of humor, and the
speaker was more than once compelled to
pause until the applause had subsided.
.Following Congressman Butterworth,
Judge Walling, candidate for Presidential
elector on the Republican ticket, spoke for
a few minutes on the financial question.
He is a careful speaker and made a sound
argument for honest finance, 7 his dealing
with the free-silver heresy J. being even
more harsh than that of : the previous
speaker. •'■ ■*&§&

Rally of Raker "field Silverites.
BAKERSFIELD, Cal., Oct. 10.— One of
the largest open-air meetings of the cam
paign was held here to-night under the
auspices of the Bryan Silver Club. It was
orecedeci by a torchlight procession, with
ippropriate transparencies. Senator White
was the only speaker. His address was
attentively listened to and frequently
cheered. He dealt solely with the silver
question, dismissing the tariff by saying
that the collections under ;the Wilson bill

Lively Quarrel in the Democratic Conven-
tion Over the Trading With the
LOS ANGELES, Cal., Oct. 10.— The at
tempt at fusion here to-day between the
municipal conventions of the Democrats
and Populists has led to an interminable
confusion, and caused Hon. Burdett Chan
dler to declare in a speech of unusual fire
on the floor of the Democratic body that
this fusion business was rapidly leading
the Democracy to that region which pa
gan Bob Ingersoll says has no real exist
ence. Chandler was opposing the adop
tion of the report submitted by a Popo
cratic committee looking toward "an
equitable division" of offices in this city.
Delegate Chandler was not the only pa
triot in the Democratic convention who
looked with disfavor upon thii trading.
A score of leading Democrats pointed out
the bad faith and worse promises of their
amiable neighbors, the Populists. Refer
ence was made to the lamentable experi
ence of two years ago, when that "young
Jeffersonian Democrat," George Patton,
took a very disconsolate trip up Salt River
in his efforts to go to Congress from this
The scene in the convention during the
consideration of the fusion report was dis
orderly in the extreme. Chairman Dock
weiler had no control over the body, and
for nearly an hour pandemonium reigned.
The resolutions adopted were lengthy
and promised anything and every
thing in the way of reforms and good,
easy times for workingmen, with big pay,
short hours and many other things with
which municipalities have nothing what
ever to do. These beneficent resolutions
were considered so timely and fitting that,
the Populist convention, hearing of them,
sent over and asked consent for a copy at
Under a suspension of the rules M. P.
Snyder, Democratic Councilman from the
Second Ward, was nominated for Mayor,
defeating Dr. Choat after ex-Mayor
Thomas E. Rowan had withdrawn. No
other nominations were made, and both
conventions adjourned to Monday fore
Ex-Mayor Rowan and his friends are
the maddest men in this end of the State
to-night. Early this forenoon a resolu
tion was rushed through the Populist con
vention connecting Rowan with the water
company. This resolution was in the na
ture of serving notice, in advance, to the
Democrats that under no circumstances
would the Populists indorse his nomina
tion. This compelled Rowan's retirement
and aroused the anger of himself and his
many friends.
Democratic IF. J Munsaker Advocates I
an Honest Currency.
LOS ANGELES, Cal., Oct. 10.— Hon. |
W. J. Hunsaker, a leading memb.-r of the :
Los Angeles County bar and an old-line ;
Democrat, addressed a large crowd in j
Music Hall this evening under the aus- j
pices of the Young Men's Sound-money j
League of this city. The club members j
attended the meeting in a body hand- |
somely uniformed. The meeting had ;
been especially provided to give the dis- j
tinguished speaker an opportunity to ex- j
plain why he is supporting Major McKin- |
lev in this campaign. His points were '
telling and anything but complimentary I
to the Popocrats who are attempting to
get offices by fair means if they can, but
got them anyway.
The speaker said he was not in sym- j
pathy with those who, while claiming ;
undying friendship for America and j
American institutions, would tarnish its
credit and its sacred honor by foisting a
cheap and discredited money upon the
country. On the question of tariff Mr. ;
Hunsaker said he had not indorsed the j
McKinley bill, but was now willing that
the Republican party should* take the re- I
sponsibility of framing a new tariff iaw \
adequate to the needs of the country.
The plan of running behind with the ex
penditures of the Government, as now, ,
should be remedied at once.
Santa Rosans Hear Cutler.
SANTA ROSA, Cal., Oct. 10. —An
audience of 2000 people greeted Fletcher
A. Cutler, the fusion candidate for Con
gress, to-night. The meeting was presided
over by T. J. Butts and about fifty mem
bers of the local Bryan Free Silver Club
occupied seats upon the stage. An escort
of 160 uniformed men escorted Mr. Cutler
from the Occidental Hotel to the hall,
preceeded by a band. Mr. Cutler's speech
was clean and thoughtful, giving Lhe op
position full credit for many reforms and
at no time descending to abuse or even

MODESTO, Cal., Oct. 10.— Democratic
candidates who failed to get on tne regu

tion were not filed with the County Clerk
within the legal time have secured suffi
cient signatures to a petition requiring
the clerk to put the names on the ballot as
independent Democrats. The clerk first
refused to place the word "Democrat"
after "independent," but the Secretary of
State yesterday advised him to file as" re
quested by the petitioners.

SAN JOSE, Cal., Oct. 10.— Mrs. Charles
Band, wife of the proprietor of a small
grocery-store at the corner of Tenth and
William streets, has left her home with
out giving any apparent reason. John
Lythe, a young man who has been em
ployed as a clerk in the store, is also miss

that the couple have eloped.
Band has been employed at the Eagle
Brewery for the pa3t eight years. Some
months ago he purchased the little gro
cery and put hia wife in charge and hired
Lythe to teach her the business. When
Band returned home Tuesday night Lythe
told him his wife had gone calling, and
the two men sat down and supped to

brewery and Lythe closed the store and
went uptown, saying he would be around

Chinese Washhouse Wrecked by in In-
toxicated Hoodlum,
LOS GATOS, Cal., Oct. 10.— Sing Lee's
washhouse was invaded yesterday after
noon by a drunken hoodlum named "Bill"
Smith, who in the short space of a quarter
of an hour wrecked the building and
contents. The loot was exceedingly
thorough, the only articles left intact
about the place being an accumulation of
the week's washing.
Smith assailed the place with brickbats
and rocks, until only the shell of the
building stood. The Chinamen fled in all
directions. Smith was arrested and jailed
and will be dealt with in no easy manner
by the outraged law. What was once a
neat frame building now stands a wreck —
doorless, vnndowless and, worst of all,
minus its favorite joss. The owner of the
building, Banker John W. Leyndon, vows
vengeance on the culprit.
