Bridge, mem bers of the staff of the Mountain Copper Company of this place, lost their lives while fording Rock Creek this morning. Campbell and Bridge went to Redding last evening to attend the ball given at the close of the Odd Fellows' grand en campment. Early this morning the two men left the ballroom and went to the home of John W. Hare, where they slept several hours. At 6:30 o'clock they left Redding and drove rapidly toward Keswick. Dav was breaking an.l It was raining hard as they came to Rock Creek, usually an insignificant stream, but swollen to a torrent by the night's hea\-y downpour. There were no eye-witnesses to the attempt to ford the creek, but at 8 o'clock a man' discovered a badly crippled horse standing at the edsre of the creek, Ju»t below tho ford, with the wreck of a buggy near by. The horse was recog nized as the "driving animal of H. D. Campbell. Word was sent to the smelter office at Keswick and search parties were organ ized. Forty men were dispatched to Rock' Creek, j They hunted downstream for two miles, to a point where the creek empties into the Sacramento. Near this junction the' body of Bridge was found. It was covered with sand," only an arm protrud ing. : All day long thai search for Camp bell's .body was. continued,, but no trace could be found. The creek had fallen so rapldly;that'if his body remained in that Btream it would have been recovered. It Is' believed It must have been swept out Into the river. . , •....-* .

NEW YORK, Oct. 19.— Archbishop Ireland, in an interview to-day, reiterated what he had previously said of the Pope's thorough ap proval of the policy of the United States in the Philippines and Cuba, and added the recognition that In the former islands the only safety for her property and priests is found under the protection of the American flag. "In one of the au diences which His Holiness granted me," said the Archbishop, "the Pope said: " 'We are well pleased with the relations of the American Government to the church in Cuba and the Philippine Islands. The American Government gives proof of good will and exhibits In Its acts a spirit of justice and of respect for the lib erty and rights of the church. We have confidence in the intelligence and spirit of Justice of the American Government, and believe that the future will not lead us to a change of sentiment toward It. .Under the American Government there will be due respect for the rights of property and of conscience. You will thank, in my name, the President of tho republic for what is being done.' "Cardinal Secretary Rampolla said: 'The church needs' in Cuba and in the Philip pines the co-operation of the American Government for the protection of Its rights and v liberties, as indeed the Ameri can Government needs the co-operation of the church for the pacification of those countries.' "As a plain matter of fact," added the Archbishop, "the only safety which the Catholic church at the present time has In the Philippines for the possession of her properties and for the lives of her priests Is the protection afforded by the American flag, and all this is fully .understood and fully recognized in Rome." • Protection Afforded Catho lic ProDertu and Priests Dulu Recognized bu Rome. GRATEFUL TO THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT LINCOLN, Nebr., Oct. 19.— With pros perity as his principal topic of discussion. Senator Hanna traveled through the east- Upon the Issues of the Day. Talks to tb,e People of Nebraska SENATOR HANNA'S TOUR. Senator Hanna was then driven to the Auditorium. He spoke for about twenty minutes, discussing Industrial conditions for the most part. He received an ova tion when he concluded and the crush to shake hands with him was again so great that the police had to clear the way to the carriage. , From the Auditorium Senator Hanna was driven to the Lindell Hotel, where he spoke for about five minutes. Here again there was much confusion and hisses and shouts for Bryan mingled with cheering. Senator Hanna then referred to Mr. Bryan's alleged reference to him as a '•'labor crusher," made first during his Senatorial campaign in 1597. and con tinued: "I want to remind every man that a man who in a contest will drag an honor able name into the mire for the sake of making votes is not worthy to be consid ered for the high office of President of the United States, and I.. believe there arc thousands of people in the State of Ne braska who resent it as an insult to their Intelligence and their ideas of fair play and justice: because when a man has the opportunity through newspapers or through the public rostrum to make charges too trifling to be denied, and those charges go undented and enter into the minds of the people whom the man so charged has no opportunity to convince any man who will use those tactics to fur ther his own selfish ambition is not fit- to be constable." "In regard to that statement," Senator Hanna said, "before an audience in Lin coln, I want to hurl It back in his teeth and tell him it is as false as hell. When It comes to personalities I am willing to stand before the American people 1 on my record as a business man and let him stand on his. I have been in business forty years; I am employing 6000 men, pay the highest wages, treat them like men, and they all respect me, and when Mr. Bryan or. any other man charges upon me —and I am willing to appropriate it all, as I am chairman of the board of man agers of this Republican campaign— with any such methods as those. I propose, as I said, to hurl it back and denounce him as a demagogue— In his own town." Shortly after 8 o'clock the parade formed and amid a blaze of flambeaus and fireworks Senators Hanna and Victor Dol llver were escorted to the Oliver House. Senator Frye going to the Auditorium. When Senator Hanna was introduced he was received with a roar of applause. Senator Hanna spoke at some length, tak ing up the silver and anti-imperialist issues, and finally referred to the charges which Mr. Hanna said had recently been made by Mr. Bryan that the Republican campaign managers had entered upon ex tensive bribery in order to secure the elec tion of the Republican ticket. Escorted by the Lincoln Traveling: Men's Marching Club 'anil several uniformed marching organizations. Senators Hanna and Frye were escorted from their train to the Lincoln Hotel. Immediately after dinner Senator Hanna. standing on the balcony of the . hotel, shook hands for some time with the crowds that filed Dy. So great was their number that Senator Hanna was finally compelled to beat a re treat. The first of the two days' speechmaking in Nebraska by Senators Hanna and Frye culminated to-night In three big meetings here, including an outdoor • meeting in front of the Lincoln Hotel. Only two meetings had been planned for, but so tre mendous were the crowds that attempted to force their way into the Opera-house and the Auditorium to hear Senator, Hanna that he was finally asked to ad dress an overflow meeting from the bal cony of the hotel. Excursion trains were run into Lincoln from many points in Eastern and Central Nebraska and the parade which took place to-night included a dozen of the town uniformed marching clubs, among them several -women's or ganizations. said Senator Hanna In his speech at the Oliver House in Lincoln to-niKht. In referring to W. J. Bryan. In his speech, which was one of the lengthiest delivered in his present tour, Senator Hanna bit terly denounced Mr. Bryan for what he termed "his attempts to slander me in my own State." This 13 Bryan's home town, and the speech of Senator Hanna was re ceived with mingled cheers and hisses. LINCOLN, Nebr. Oct. 19.— "A man who knowingly or unknowingly will circulate slanders about another man Is not fit to be a constable," At North Bend Mr. Hanna was present ed with a big bunch of flowers by a dele gation of little glrla. . "There Is another side to this question, that of patriotism. As long as our dead lie burled In the Philippines, as long as our brothers and fathers lie in that soil, anybody who attempts to haul the flag down will be snowed under. They say that there Is another side to this question. They call It commercialism. My friends, lfjlt Is commercialism to want the pos session of a strategic point, giving the American people an opportunity. to main tain a foothold in the markets of that Eastern country, for God's sake let us have commercialism." "I have heard that you have a candidate for the Presidency living In your State." said Mr. Hanna, amid laughter, "and that he has got it bad. so bad that he ia will- Ing to sacrifice all the material interests of this country In order that he may at tain the height of his amtition. Now, my friends, you are not called upon to exer cise the prerogative of your votes to sat isfy the ambition of any man, but you are called upon to consider your own In terests and the interests of your country first." In, briefly discussing the question of im perialism, Mr. Hanna said: . A big audience greeted Mr. Hanna at Norfolk, the street being packed for al most a block from the speaking stand Prosperity as the issue was then debated by Mr. Hanna for five minutes. The farmers composing the audience cheered him until the train was far from the sta tion. "Oh, I am not so dangerous as e*i that," said he, laughingly, pointing to the ban ner. "Populist farmers, beware! Chain your children to yourselves or put *em tinder the bed. Mark Hanna Is In town.** At Wlnslde. a little hamlet in the midst of the corn country, Mr. Ilanna saw tho following banner as he stepped out on the car platform: "What we want to consider is what is best fcr our personal interests. All you want to do is to let well enough alone." "There is no time for the people of this country to say anything to any set of politicians which attempts to raise a bogy man to scare the timid," said Mr. Hanna.. At "Wayne, ¦where the audience was made up mostly of farmers, he said: The nrst stop in Nebraska was at Em erson, where a good-sized crowd gave tho Senator a warm greeting. At WakenelU two brass bunds were at the station, but their music was almost drowned by tho terrific din caused by a gang of grain shovelera, who pounded the Immense scoops with clubs and shouted for Hanna. Here Senator Hanna addressed the crowd in a big tent put up near the station. "You men. better than any one else." said he, "know what the continuation o£ the present conditions means to this coun try. It 13 in the hands of the toilers, the men of the factory, to decide whether the wheels of industry shall be kept running, whether thty shall continue to earn the highest wages ever paid to skilled laboc, or return to the conditions existing four years ago, to the bitter struggle fur sub sistence for themselves and their families. I have no doubt which way you will de cide on the 6th of November." Sioux City was the first stop to-day. It was about 7:C0. and the crowd which greeted Senator Ilanna was made ui> mostly of workingmea from the near-by shops, who, with their dinner pails on their arms, crowded urcund the stand erected in the big train shed in the Uepoc diid shouted "Hello, Mark!" to the Re publican leader. Mr. Hanna made an ad dress of about ten minutes. will leave Omaha immediately after the close of the meeting there and will ru.i straight through to Chicago. To-morrow, the last day of the tour. will be spent for the most part in the ex treme southeast portion of the State, the two principal meetings being at Nebraska City in the afternoon and Omaha in the evening. The special train, it is expected. ern tier of counties of Nebraska to-day, making speeches in over a dozen citie-« and towns and winding up to-night at Lincoln, the home of Bryan, where an im mense demonstration had been arranged in his honor. Most of the district covered by the Republican leader to-day is distinctly agricultural and, speaking to the farmer-, who In many instances made up a larg • proportion of the crowds that greeted him. Senator Hanna took present an I past Industrial conditions as his topic. Hu speeches were as a rule more length. than those of any previous day of tho tour, and in orJer to complete the pro gramme the iirst speech this morning at Sioux City, Iowa, occurred before S o'clock. THE REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE FOR VICE PRES IDENT CAUGHT ON THE STUMP BY A KODAK ARTIST. "This is a g-overnment controlled by great political parties, the respective or gans of which' are formed and maintained by those who largely agree upon certain policies of administration, but it is not ex pected.. nor is It practicable, that such parties will' at all times," fully and accu rately, represent the sentiments of every Individual member, tit Is sufficient that pome leading principles In which a citizen believes are advocated by the party with ¦which he is associated, to Justify his sup port of that party, regardless . of its atti tude on subordinate questions which he may or may not approve. He need not in dorse every line or plank of a platform In order to maintain his orthodoxy. "A different policy would disintegrate jrreat parties and create factions without number. Majorities must control In politi cal parties as well as in governments. The question after all Is not one of mere con stituency—which Is never a vital matter but whether one's own political party as a whole better represents one's sentiments than the opposition party, and the solu tion of that problem must always be de termined by the elector himself, according to his own best Judgment. "It Is submitted that It is the duty of every Democratic citizen everywhere to eupport the nominations of the party, reg ularly and fairly made, even though some party policies may not nrvt their entire approval. I am reasonably sure that the. platform of no other party will suit Demo crats as well as the platform of their own P*rtjr. "While my personal views of certain portions of the reaffirmed platform may not have been changed, particularly as to their wisdom and expediency, it does not follow that either honor, duty or con sistency requires me to withhold my act ive co-operation in electing the ticket ¦which was fairly and regularly nominat ed; much less do such considerations re quire me to cancel my party ties or Join another party or support another ticket. I repudiate the idea s» persistently Incal culated by impracticable doctrinaires that every time a citizen is outvoted In a con vention, a church, corporation or a so ciety, -even upon a material matter— he is In honor bound to bolt and form an other party, establish a new church, set up a rlvaJ corporation or organize a sec ond society. nomination of our national candidate for President in behalf of the masses of the Democracy of the State of New York, to Kive the ticket not nurely my acquies cence but my support, and tnat assurance J am now fulfilling. "If there existed no reason it is be lieved that a sense of common danger to our free institutions, now being imper iled by the attacks of our common ad verearlef, has cemented the Democracy of the East and West tocether in their patriotic efforts to effect a change in the administration of our national affairs — a change of measures and of men. In the eplrit of Democratic unity which I fci'ieve now largely everywhere prevails I vipit you as a humble' representative of the Eastern Democracy in the interest of that cause which is dear to every follow er of Thomas Jefferson, to counsel to eethtr bom- best we mayitisure the suc cess of those cherished principles of gov ernment which were first enunciated by that great founder of our party organi zation. "I make no apologies to any one for my activity and interest in this campaign. I participated in the convention at Kansas City which framed the platform and nom inated the candidates — a convention which treated me with courtesy from the com mencement to the end ol its proceedings— and as an honorable man I was bound to acquiesce in the results of its delibera tions. It Is true, as is well known, that I eought to secure a modification of the proposed platform. In some particulars, in which, however, I was only partially puccesfful. but b*lrg reasonably satisfied with its utterances on the questions which seemed to form the leading- issues in this particular election I expressed my inten tion at the convention in seconding the David B. Hill of New York. A great number of people were unable to get into the armory and for their benefit several outdoor speeches were made by local orators. "When Mr. Hill arrived at the armory, accompanied by Mayor Car ter H. Harrison, he was given a magnifi cent ovation. Mayor Harrison introduced Mr. Hill, calling forth a prolonged out burst of applause. It was fully five min utes before the cheering subsided suffi ciently to allow Senator Hill to begin his addrc-F?. Throughout :ts delivery he wa3 accorded a generous amount of applause, Senator HOI eaid in pait: CHICAGO. Oct. 19— An audience of 5000 people crowded the Second Regiment armory to-night to lis ten to an address by ex-Senator At Binghamton, where Mr. Bryan had the largest and most enthusiastic audi ence of the day, special notice was- made of the fact tnat some of the manufactur ing plants of that city were close. The day was rendered Interesting by a spirited meeting at Auburn, the home during his lifetime of Secretary Seward, and Mr. Bryan's pointed reference in his speech there to the manager, of an im portant manufacturing enterprise at that point which he evidently intended should have greater than . local application. Speeches were also made during the day at Cortland, Binghamton and at sev eral other points. The day's work closed with a meeting at Rochester late to night. The meetings to-day were gen erally well attended, and those at Ithaca and Binghamjon were especially targe. Probably the Binghamton meeting was the most enthusiastic of the day. In all instances except at the beginning of the Ithaca meeting close attention was given to the speeches. Mr. Bryan's speech at Cortland was addressed almost wholly to the farmers and he there expressed the opinion that one person out of a hundred was bene fited by Republican policies. He pleaded to hJs auditors to throw off the yoke of partisanship and assert their Indepen dence. He declared that the farmers were e\ery year owing more and owning less of the wealth they create. The young men who were below re sponded to these signals with cries and yells, and they also asked numerous questions while the speech was in pro gress. Evidently, too, quite a large per centage of the students were in sympathy with Mr. Bryan, and some of them shouted lustily for him when his replies to the questions of their fellows were especially to their liking-. Mr. Bryan was generally voted to have met the occasion successfully and that he did so was evi denced by the fact that the interruptions grew fewer and farther apart as the speech proceeded and at last ceased alto gether. SYRACUSE, N. Y., Oct. 19.— William J. Bryan, the Democratic standard bearer, to-day experienced his second encounter of the campaign with college students. It occurred at Ithaca, and the students were from Cornell University. The incident was not so exciting as that at Ann Arbor, Mich., for the Ti-ason that the young men were not so persistent and did not work in such unison, but there was one feature of interest which was not noticeable at Ann Arbor. This was the participation of young women in the affair. A hundred or more members of the fair sex were stationed at windows in the high school, just back and over the stage from which Mr. Bryan spoke, and they disturbed the proceedings to as great an extent as they could by lowering posters bearing a picture of President McKinley so as to attract the attention of the crowd. Cornell Students. Bryan Has a Lively Encounter With "It Is an issue which cannot be ignored; it cannot be ridiculed; it cannot be sup pressed; it overshadows all other issues; it is here to stay. It involves the perpetu ity of our republic, the nature of which is sought to be changed by men who call themselves Americans, but who are Brit ish in sentiment, British in sympathy and British in fianancial interests." GIRLS JOIN IN "JOSHING." "President McKinley says there is no such issue and yet he devoted the gr \ter part of his extended letter of acceptance in antagonizing it. Senator Depew scouts the idea of any danger to the country from what he calls 'American imperial ism,' and occupies half of his time in his public speeches in endeavoring to per suade his hearers that they ought to tol erate it. Governor Roosevelt, recently 'promoted* to the Vice Presidential nomi nation through the disinterested effort? or Senators Platt and Quay, gives nearly all of his attention in his public utterances to the discussion of this topic. "It is the one subject which has largely engrossed popular interest since th-* -tay the nominations of each party were le. The Interest in It intensifies as the ctrn paign progresses. Like Banquo's ghost, it will not down. "The thoughtful citizen anxious to dis charge his duty at the approaching elec tion not only requires what is the most important issue Involved to which he should give his careful consideration but without deprecating the importance of the questions of trusts, finances, monetary reform, taxation, centralization, govern ment by injunction, home rule, economics and other questions worthy of attention, it was believed that the vital question of this campaign was whether our form of governwent was to be preserved In all its simplicity and integrity. It is called, in brief, the issue of 'imperialism.' In other words, it Is the issue of a republic versus an empire. SAN FKANCISCO, . SATURDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1900. VOLUME LXXXVIII— NO. 142.
