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

This forecast has been made without regard to the political bias of the newspapers directing it.
The men engaged in the work were instructed to note conditions as they, existed, to cast aside partisan
ship and get at the truth; This they have sought to do, and while the result may make unpleasant reading
for some, it is given in all candor and' honesty and in the belief, strengthened by past experience, that it
is prophetic. * •
This'last statement is based upon the knowtedgeof the accuracy of similar, forecasts previously
made under the auspices of the New York Herald.' In 1884 thatpaper predicted the election of Grover
Cleveland, in 1888 the success. of Harrison, in 1892 the second triumph of Cleveland, and in 1896 the
sound money sweep for McXinley. • In conjunction with The Call; this year, the forecast has been even
more thoroughly made, and it is safe to say that what The Call and r Herald foreshadow to-morrow is
foreordained for November 6 next.
The Call will publish to-morrow morning, simultaneously with the New York Herald, a fore
cast of the approaching Presidential election, based_ upon the closest observation in every State in the
Union. In conjunction with the Herald, The Call has had for some time employed inall the doubtful States
a corps of trained political observers. For weeks they have been sifting conditions and preparing estimates
for the purpose of ascertaining for the readers of both newspapers how these States are going on Novem
ber 6 and what members of Congress they will elect. This work will be finished to-day and will show
beyond a doubt who will be elected President and which party will control the next House of Represen
tatives. . ¦-'..:

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." •

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

"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

Kive the ticket not nurely my acquies

"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

"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

eought to secure a modification of the
proposed platform. In some particulars,

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

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

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.

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.
